Bound For Blue

See you standing by the window

Pretty ribbon in you hair

See you laughing by the water

I close my eyes and you're still there

The beauty of the roses

The beauty of your smile

The poetry of longing

The dark and hopeless wounded sky

 

I was born to love you

Nothing I could do

Never to recover

And bound for blue

 

Tomorrow I’ll be leaving

I’m going far away

I wonder if you’ll follow

I wonder if you’ll stay

 

I was born to love you

Nothing I could do

Never to recover

And bound for blue

 

Change Your Mind

A man can change his mind you know

It’s not against the law

He might be thinking he was wrong

Just might be needing more

 

He just might think that loneliness

Was alright for a while

But the price you pay to reach the top

Is just a little high

 

And the nights are cold and the nights are dark

And the dreams inside are dead

And when you reach for comfort in the night

There’s just an empty bed

 

Change your mind

Change your mind

There’s still time

To change your mind

 

Well you promised yourself a room with a view

But tell me what do you see

There’s rain on the window and tears in your eyes

And the clouds roll in on the breeze

 

Ah but still you could make it right

But oh you’ve got your pride

While the man you thought that you would be

Is screaming from inside

 

Change your mind

Change your mind

There’s still time

To change your mind

 

Well the ladies smile as you walk by

But still you live alone

Your arm frozen by your side

Your heart like a stone

 

And with nothing left that you can say

You might as well be dumb

Though you still long for the call of love

Will you hear it when it comes

 

Change your mind

 

Don’t Cry

 

I know you’ve lived a lonely life

I know your days go by 

You watch the fading of the light

The dreams inside you die 

 

Don’t cry

Don’t cry

 

Your broken heart won’t let you go

There’s nowhere you can hide 

How you were wounded I don’t know

But I will dry your eyes 

 

Don’t cry 

Don’t cry

Don’t cry 

Don't Cry

I know you’ve lived a lonely life
I know your days go by
You watch the fading of the light
The dreams inside you die

Don’t cry
Don’t cry

Your broken heart won’t let you go
There’s nowhere you can hide
How you were wounded I don’t know
But I will dry your eyes

Don’t cry
Don’t cry
Don’t cry

 

Hold On To Me

Come and take this broken man

Come and take his wounded heart

I offer you an open hand

Help me tear these walls apart

 

And hold on to me

Hold on to me

Come set me free

Hold on to me

 

Welcome me into your arms

Pull me gently to your breast

In confusion bring me calm

Lay me down and give me rest

 

And hold on to me

Hold on to me

Come set me free

Hold on to me

 

Oh I need you

I need you now 

Anyway

And anyhow

 

Hold on to me

Hold on to me

Come set me free

Hold on to me

 

Hold On To Me


Come and take this broken man
Come and take his wounded heart
I offer you an open hand
Help me tear these walls apart

And hold on to me
Hold on to me
Come set me free
Hold on to me

Welcome me into your arms
Pull me gently to your breast
In confusion bring me calm
Lay me down and give me rest

And hold on to me
Hold on to me
Come set me free
Hold on to me

Oh I need you
I need you now
Anyway
And anyhow

Hold on to me
Hold on to me
Come set me free
Hold on to me

In My Arms Again

 

If I were a hero 

Handsome and brave

And fearless in battle 

Ten thousand had saved

Then I’d run away 

And I’d suffer the shame

If I could hold you 

In my arms again

 

And if I wasn’t guilty

Had not done the deed

And the judge he said

Just how do you plead?

Then I would confess

And I’d take all of the blame

If I could hold you

In my arms again

 

And if the sky should open

And Jesus came down

And he said you’ve been good son

It’s for heaven your bound

Then I’d go to hell

And I’d burn in the flames

If I could hold you

In my arms again

 

Yes I’d go to hell

And I’d burn in the flames

If I could hold you

In my arms again

 

In My Arms Again

If I were a hero
Handsome and brave
And fearless in battle
Ten thousand had saved
Then I’d run away
And I’d suffer the shame
If I could hold you
In my arms again

And if I wasn’t guilty
Had not done the deed
And the judge he said
Just how do you plead?
Then I would confess
And I’d take all of the blame
If I could hold you
In my arms again

And if the sky should open
And Jesus came down
And he said you’ve been good son
It’s for heaven your bound
Then I’d go to hell
And I’d burn in the flames
If I could hold you
In my arms again

Yes I’d go to hell
And I’d burn in the flames
If I could hold you
In my arms again

Is It You? 
 

I heard that you wanted me

I heard that you cared

And all that you had you would share

Your Hollywood shirts

Your best and your worst

The secrets you never declare

 

But all I ever wanted

Was a lover strong and true

Somebody that would take away these blues

So tell baby, tell me

Is it you?

 

If I gave you my heart 

On a long silver thread

Would you drag me around in your bed?

And if my world falls apart

Will you make it all new?

Will you do what a lover should do?

 

Oh tell baby, tell me

Tell baby, tell me

Is it you?

 

Cause all I ever wanted

Was a lover strong and true

Somebody that would take away these blues

So tell baby, tell me

Oh tell baby, tell me

Is it you?

Is It You?

I heard that you wanted me
I heard that you cared
And all that you had you would share
Your Hollywood shirts
Your best and your worst
The secrets you never declare

But all I ever wanted
Was a lover strong and true
Somebody that would take away these blues
So tell baby, tell me
Is it you?

If I gave you my heart
On a long silver thread
Would you drag me around in your bed?
And if my world falls apart
Will you make it all new?
Will you do what a lover should do?

Oh tell baby, tell me
Tell baby, tell me
Is it you?

Cause all I ever wanted
Was a lover strong and true
Somebody that would take away these blues
So tell baby, tell me
Oh tell baby, tell me
Is it you?

 

Love Truth Sorrow And Beauty

 

Will somebody love me?

Will somebody care?

For if love is surrender

Hell I’m already there

 

You can love me in silence

You can love me in pain

When it’s dark and it’s lonely 

And the night fills with rain

 

And love, truth, sorrow and beauty

Betrayal and trust, freedom and duty

 

You can love me in the poorhouse

Or in the palace of kings

In the cathedrals of power

Where the birds never sing

 

You can tell me I’m crazy

You can say I’m a fool

But I’d sell you my soul

And I’d break every rule

 

For love, truth, sorrow and beauty

Betrayal and trust, freedom and duty

 

And joy and despair, anger and laughter

Tears and revenge and promises ever after

 

Will somebody care?

Love Truth Sorrow And Beauty

Will somebody love me?
Will somebody care?
For if love is surrender
Hell I’m already there

You can love me in silence
You can love me in pain
When it’s dark and it’s lonely
And the night fills with rain

And love, truth, sorrow and beauty
Betrayal and trust, freedom and duty

You can love me in the poorhouse
Or in the palace of kings
In the cathedrals of power
Where the birds never sing

You can tell me I’m crazy
You can say I’m a fool
But I’d sell you my soul
And I’d break every rule

For love, truth, sorrow and beauty
Betrayal and trust, freedom and duty

And joy and despair, anger and laughter
Tears and revenge and promises eve rafter

Will somebody care?

 

Revenge

See the silver bullet

See the silver gun

Feel your ragged heart

Tighten like a drum

 

Bind your self in silence

Kill your gypsy song

Listen to the voices 

Howling all night long

 

Till all you see is darkness

And revenge

 

Revenge

 

Sorrow and confusion

Hollow out your face

Darkness and illusion

Lay your dreams to waste

 

Till in the end your only friend

Revenge

 

Revenge

 

All is lost, all is free

All is you, all is me

 

But on this you can depend

A silver bullet, darkness 

And revenge

Revenge

 

The Money Lender

 

Well I break my back to get money

But still there’s not enough

And I work my fingers to the bone

But I don’t get time for love

 

Well some folks they get the good life

But I wonder if they know

What it’s like to struggle and slide

Everywhere you go

 

Cause that money lender’s on my back

And he drives me on and on

And he won’t let go until I crack

And everything has gone

 

Well I guess it’s always been this way

You’ve had to walk that line

But you can count the men that have fallen away

Time after time

 

Well we sell our days and our nights for pay

But we’ll never know what for

But the money man he understands

And he whispers more

 

Cause that money lender’s on my back

And he drives me on and on

And he won’t let go until I crack

And everything has gone 

 

Revenge

See the silver bullet
See the silver gun
Feel your ragged heart
Tighten like a drum

Bind your self in silence
Kill your gypsy song
Listen to the voices
Howling all night long

Till all you see
Is darkness
And revenge

Revenge

Sorrow and confusion
Hollow out your face
Darkness and illusion
Lay your dreams to waste

Till in the end
Your only friend
Revenge

Revenge

All is lost
All is free
All is you
All is me

But on this
You can depend
A silver bullet
Darkness
And revenge

Revenge

 

Tomorrow Or Today

 

Lover

Will you always be true?

Pretty lover 

Can I depend on you?

Tomorrow or today

Are you gonna run away

From me? 

 

Baby 

Will everything go wrong?

Pretty baby 

You know you get it then it’s gone

Oh tomorrow or today

Are you gonna run away

From me? 

 

Lover 

Will you hold me in your arms?

Pretty lover 

Will you shelter me from harm?

Oh tomorrow or today

Are you gonna run away

From me? 

Woman Of Numbers

 

You’re a woman of numbers

Counting the cards in the pack

And I’ve heard there are rumours

That you have all the things that I lack

 

With your soft silky lace

And your fingers that chase

The shadows of fear from my brow

As we struggle and slip 

And twist in the grip

Of love’s longing so naked and proud

So naked and proud 

 

Now I follow behind you

I’m there wherever you go

And I heard that you loved me

But you just didn’t want me to know

 

I had a dream in my bed 

That our love was dead

It was broken beyond all desire

Slow motion, not a word

Everything blurred

I couldn’t see it was like looking through fire

Like looking through fire 

 

Now somewhere inside you

There’s a place where I’ve never been

And if you opened the doorway

I wonder would I step in

 

With your soft silky lace

And your fingers that trace

The shadows of fear from my brow

As we struggle and slip 

And twist in the grip

Of love’s longing so naked and proud

 

I had a dream in my bed 

That our love was dead

It was broken beyond all desire

Slow motion, not a word

Everything blurred

I couldn’t see it was like looking through fire

Like looking through fire
