Hoop of Fire

You say that all you want are the simple things
Long walks on lonely beaches, guitars with nylon strings
But underneath you'd rather leap through a hoop of fire
You shy away from lips that want, that want to kiss you
Tongue-tied on formal evenings, wealth don't impress you
But if you ask me you like the heat in a hoop of fire

And it's hard to read just how you feel or what your dreams desire
Your pulse that races when I'm close reads like a hoop of fire
Your pulse that races when I'm close reads like a hoop of fire

No late nights making love in secret places
You feel pressure all around you, mistrust in strangers faces
But don't pretend you wouldn't spend some time in a hoop of fire

But don't pretend you wouldn't spend some time in a hoop of fire

 

Hour Glass

I'm just sitting counting all the cobwebs
And wondering just when you'll come along
You said that you'd be here an hour ago
But an hour ago is hours ago from then

No, and I don't know what to do
I'm drawing crazy patterns on my shoe
And the sand in the hour glass slips on by

Light another cigarette, watch the burning glow
Catching spiders in my hand, and then I let them go
Imagine pictures on the wall, watch the insects where they crawl
They don't care about you and I've nothing to do

Maybe the bus didn't get there on time
Maybe the train doesn't run on that line for some reason
And she might not come
Because she doesn't want to see you again
No no no, that can't be true
And I've got nothing to do

 

House of Cards

I hear tell some playboy has kidnapped your heart
With his plane and his plans for games after dark
Just a pain in his pocket, and the price of a room
Where the second hand sheets smell of stale perfume

If there's sharks in the water, don't swim where it's deep
For the taste of success can be bitter and sweet
It could be alright that I act like a child
But you'll be the loser when the jokers run wild

You're just playing the game, but the stakes are too high
What will you do when the chips start to fly
When the deck's stacked against you, and the living gets hard
Oh it's four walls of madness in this house of cards

Common you call me, but I know there's time
In a handful of diamonds, a heart's hard to find
And your house of cards starts weighing you down
Your nights become restless when the clubs start to pound

 

House

This is my house
This is where I live
That is the winter
Those are the trees
I can hear them breathe
This is my bed
This is where I sleep
That was the dark
Those are my dreams
They belong to me

This is my floor
This is where I lie
This is a square room
That was a bright light
These are not my eyes
What is my soul
Where is my tired heart
That is the question
Where is the answer
Inside my house

And I sit by the window
And I wish I was rain
I want to fall from the sky
I want to get wet all over again

'Cause this is my house
It belongs to me
Inside my head
It's all that's left
This is my house
This is my bed
This is where I sleep
That was the dark
Those are my dreams
They belong to me

This is my house

 

How Could We Still be Dancin'

Dancin', dancin'
Dance the night away, dance the night away
One thirty, two thirty
Danin' my life away

How could we still be dancin'
After all these years
How could we still be laughing
After all those tears

How could we still be friendly
After slamming those doors
How could we still be living
After all those wars

Hey everybody, help to make this feeling right
Oh won't you help to make this feeling right

How could we still be rocking
After all those times
How could we still be rolling
And still be making rhymes

How could we still make music
After MTV
How can we get things cranking
And see what we can be

How could we tell the difference
Between right and wrong
Confusion ran for so long
But now we've found our song

Hey everybody
Hey everybody

 

How I Know You

I grew up in your hometown, at least began to grow
I hadn't got to my first shave before the body blow
Egyptians in the courtyard, my family in chains
You witnessed our abduction which possibly explains

How I know you
How I know you

Before that fateful morning my family enjoyed
A privileged existence, for my father was employed
As advisor to the king, no less, which surely rings a bell
For as you are his daughter, you probably can tell

How I know you
How I know you

Enough of reminiscence, and such happy memories
The reason why I know you well is really none of these
It's just you reek of royalty, you ooze uncommon grace
I'd know you were a princess, in any time and place

Yes I know you
How I know you
Yes I know you
How I know you

 

How's Tomorrow

He said "How's tomorrow?"
Then he drove back to town
Thinking she might follow
Hoping she might stick around
It was only the thunder
That held up the train
But in that first flash of lightning
He saw her face in the rain
He learned truth in the meaning
Of love at first sight
And when he said "How's tomorrow?"
He meant the rest of his life

Little moments in time are hard to define
Frozen forever, locked up in our minds
The reasons we're right there at a point in our lives
Isn't ours for the asking, isn't ours to decide
It's not always but often, but when that moment arrives
When we say "How's tomorrow?"
We mean the rest of our lives

She stayed on a while
Feeling drawn to that place
Could it be the dark stranger
Or something she sensed as fate
She was always a dreamer
She spent her life on the rails
Working jobs through the heartland
To keep some wind in her sails
But when he stepped from the darkness
Out into the light
And when he said "How's tomorrow?"
She saw the rest of her life

When that moment arrives
When we say "How's tomorrow"?
We mean the rest of our lives

How's tomorrow...

 

Hymn 2000

She chose the soft centre
And took it to bed with her mother
And the ideal confusion
Was just an illusion
To gain further news of her brother

And the comfort of mother
Was just an appeal for protection
For the cat from next door
Was found later at four
In surgical dissection

And I don't want to be
The son of any freak
Who for a chocolate centre
Can take you off the street

For soon they'll plough the desert
And God knows where I'll be
Collecting submarine numbers
On the main street of the sea

The Vicar is thicker
And I just can't see through to him
For his cardinal sings
A collection of hymns
And a collection of coins is made after

And who wrote the Bible
Was it Judas or Pilate
Well one cleans his hands
While the other one hangs
But still I continue to stand

 

I Am Your Robot

I've been beaming aboard her for a light year
From a strange craft
She's got a subtle touch on the silver key
To a clockwork heart

I am your robot, I am your robot
I am your robot man
I am your robot, I am your robot
I am your robot man

You went and flipped the switch and turned me positive
When I was negative
I've been stumbling around like a metal man
On the graveyard shift

I am your robot and I'm programmed to love you
My serial number is 44357

 

I Can't Go on Living without You

I can't go on living without you, oh no
I once said I could go on without your love
I would be strong but things have changed and heaven's above
I know that I need you more than I did before

I can't go on living without you, oh no my love
I can't go on living without you, oh no my love
I can't go on living without you, oh no

If you could see the state I'm in you'd never know
That it was the same old me that told you to go
I've never been happy since I walked out on you

You know that I've missed you more than anything at all
If there's any way to get you back I'll try it
I won't deny it, I'm lonely for you girl
