Riding the Scree

He rushes to the cliff and scrambles down the rocks.
It takes him a long time to get down to the water,
Trying to keep up with the current at the same time.
As he nears the water's edge he sees John losing strength.

Struggling down the slope,
There's not much hope.
I begin to try to ride the scree
But the rocks are tumbling all around me.

If I want John alive,
I've got to ditch my fear - take a dive
While I've still got my drive to survive.

Evel Knievel you got nothing on me.
Here I go!

 

Ripples

Bluegirls come in every size
Some are wise and some otherwise,
They got pretty blue eyes.
For an hour a man may change
For an hour her face looks strange -
Looks strange, looks strange.

Marching to the promised land
Where the honey flows and takes you by the hand,
Pulls you down on your knees,
While you're down a pool appears.
The face in the water looks up,
And she shakes her head as if to say
That it's the last time you'll look like today.

Sail away, away
Ripples never come back.
Gone to the other side.
Sail away, away.

The face that launched a thousand ships
Is sinking fast, that happens you know,
The water gets below.
Seems not very long ago
Lovelier she was than any that I know.

Angels never know it's time
To close the book and gracefully decline,
The song has found a tale.
My, what a jealous pool is she.
The face in the water looks up
She shakes her head as if to say
That the bluegirls have all gone away.

Sail away, away
Ripples never come back.
They've gone to the other side.
Look into the pool,
Ripples never come back,
Dive to the bottom and go to the top
To see where they have gone
Oh, they've gone to the other side...

Sail away, away
Ripples never come back.
They've Gone to the other side.
Look into the pool,
The ripples never come back, come back,
Dive to the bottom and go to the top
To see where they have gone
They've gone to the other side
Ripples never come back
Sail away, away...

 

Robbery, Assault & Battery

The streets were deserted though the police were alerted,
They considered the phone call a hoax.
Furtively glancing then jauntily prancing
The youth caught the guards unaware.

Slipping between them he ought to have seen then
The eyes and their owner so near.
With torch shining bright he strode on in the night
Till he came to the room with the safe.

"Hello son, I hope you're having fun."
"You've got it wrong Sir, I'm only the cleaner."
With that he fired, the other saying as he died,
"You've done me wrong," it's the same old song forever.

Robbery, assault and battery,
The felon and his felony.
Robbery, assault and battery,
The felon and his felony.

Picked up the diamonds and bundles of fivers
He pushed them well down in his sack.
But the alarm had been sounded, he was completely surrounded
But he had some more tricks up his sleeve.

"Come outside with your hands held high."
"You'll not get me alive Sir, I promise you that Sir."
With that he fired, the other saying as he died
"You've done me wrong," it's the same old song forever.

Robbery, assault and battery,
The felon and his felony.
Robbery, assault and battery,
The felon and his felony.

"He's leaving via the roof, the bastard's got away.
God always fights on the side of the bad man."

"I've got clean away but I'll be back some day,
Just the combination will have changed.
Some day they'll catch me, to a chain they'll attach me,
Until that day I'll ride the old crime wave.

If they try to hold me for trial
I'll stay out of jail by paying my bail
And after I'll go to the court of appeal saying
"You've done me wrong," it's the same old song forever."

Done me wrong - same old song - done me wrong.

 

Run Out of Time

Ooh hear me, ooh hear me
Time to tell the truth, no more lying
By the light of a candle
Through the base of a wineglass
You could almost take me for the real thing

But I know in my heart of hearts
I could never live up to what you want me to be
In the heat of temptation in a moment of crisis
I could never, never, never be what you need

Hard as I might try
I've run of luck
I've almost run out of time

Ooh forgive me, ooh forgive me
I don't mean to share all my fears
Like the man in the middle
Says he just passes on decision
I could always find someone to put the blame on

But I know in my heart of hearts
There is nobody else it was me from the start
As God is my witness, no matter the score
I could never, I could never not do it again

Hard as I might try
I've run of luck, I've run out of time
I've almost run out of tears

--------

I've run of luck, I've run out of time
I've almost run out of tears

--------

Ooh believe me, ooh believe me
I don't mean to hurt you, no more crying
A wolf needs no reason to hunt and kill it's prey
He could no more change than give up breathing

So I know in my heart of hearts
I will always be the way that I am
In the joy of a moment, in the blackest despair
I will never, never, never let anyone in

Hard as I might try
I've run of luck, I've run out of time....

 

Say It's Alright Joe

Say it's alright Joe,
I need another drink
To blow on the glass so I know I'm alive

Play me a song Joe
To fill the hours till morning
Then never again will I bother you
Ooh, Build myself a tower
No way in no way out.
Then my friends can visit me
Once in a while.

Say it's alright Joe,
I need some reassurance
You never know what you might find in the night.
Ooh I'm just a busy bee, still alive in my hive,
I'm looking for some other world
To dream out my dreams.

There were Kings who were laughing in the rain
And they told me I'd come here to lead the parade
All the colours were changing, The sky was in ruins
The lights are all shining on me and on you
Oh, Shine on........

Say it's alright Joe
The night will soon be over
And nothing and no one will ever know.
Open my eyes Joe
I'd like to see the daylight
The clock on the wall says it's time to leave.
Never seen the same face twice
Never walked the same way
The little love that I have known
I keep to myself.

If there's a fire it's asleep in my bed
I must leave it to burn till it burns itself out
Catch as you can I'm not staying here long
I'll be coming back early or never at all
Shine on........

 

Scenes From a Night's Dream

Little Nemo rubbed his eyes and got out of bed,
Trying hard to piece together a broken dream.
His visions lifelike and full of imagination
It's strange to think they came from such a tiny head.

Dragons breathing fire, but friendly.
Mushrooms tall as houses.
Giant Nymphs and goblins playing,
scenes from a night's dream, poor Little Nemo!

Eating all kinds of food so close to bedtime
They always made him have these nightmares, it seemed.

Helped young Washington in the garden,
cut the cherry tree down.
Now we all know that's not history,
Scenes from a night's dream, poor Little Nemo!

"Nemo, get out of bed!"
"Don't tell me stories, I don't want to know!"
"Come on you sleepy head, we're waiting to go!"

Once he went to the 'Carnival of Nations'
Dancing with the princess through the night.

Found themselves on a moving platform
Ten ton weights above them,
Seeking audience with King Morpheus.
Scenes from a night's dream, poor little Nemo!

"Nemo, get out of bed!"
"Don't tell me stories, I don't want to know!"
"Come on you sleepy head, we're waiting to go!"

 

Sea Bee

Hey; Sea Bee, fly through the waters as sadness that
Pulls you away from me
Hey, Sea Bee, you'll freeze in the wind that's gently
Blowing you away from me

Fly to me quickly
Soften your cold wings
I'll find you comfort
You know you're gonna fall down, down, down
'Til you end up on the ground

You have no fun
You're on your own
Where you flying now in the sky?
Can you cast your eyes below?

Hey, Sea Bee, raindrops are falling on the
Shadows where you are so close to me
Hey, Sea Bee, the beauty I saw has been
Wrenched from the sea of my sorrowing eyes

Swim home to me, now
You can just make it
I know you like it
You know you're gonna fall down, down , down
'Til you end up on the ground

You're slipping now
You're on your own
Drifting higher in the sky
Disappearing from my sight

Hey, Sea Bee, once in a while
Think of the friend that you left behind
Hey' Sea Bee, I can't forget you
Or the warmth that surrounded your gentle heart

 

Second Home By the Sea

Images of sorrow, pictures of delight
Things that go to make up a life
Endless days of summer longer nights of gloom
Just waiting for the morning light
Scenes of unimportance like photos in a frame
Things that go to make up a life

As we relive our lives in what we tell you

 

Seven Stones

I heard the old man tell his tale:

Tinker, alone within a storm,
And losing hope he clears the leaves beneath a tree,
Seven stones
Lay on the ground.
Within the seventh house a friend was found.
And the changes of no consequence will pick up the reins from nowhere.

Sailors, in peril on the sea,
Amongst the waves a rock looms nearer, and not yet seen.
They see a gull
Flying by.
The Captain turns the boat and he asks not why.
And the changes of no consequence will pick up the reins from nowhere.
Nowhere.

Despair that tires the world brings the old man laughter.
The laughter of the world only grieves him,
Believe him,
The old man's guide is chance.

I heard the old man tell his tale:

Farmer, who knows not when to sow,
Consults the old man clutching money in his hand.
And with a shrug,
The old man smiled,
Took the money, left the farmer wild.
And the changes of no consequence will pick up the reins from nowhere.
Nowhere.

Despair that tires the world brings the old man laughter.
The laughter of the world only grieves him,
Believe him,
The old man's guide is chance.

 

Shepherd

Rise up! Take your lyre and sing
Listen! To the news I bring

Frosty breath on the window
See a friend in the snow that gently falls
Feel the truth in those sad eyes
See the smile that's so rare
Just like the love
She waits for...

And she plays a game of her own
As she sleeps within the firelight
For her dreams are incredibly wild
But they're lost and gone forever, with the dawn

Fair and friend of the fleece spoke
Warrior bold, shepherd wise, fair prince of peace
Someone waits in the doorway
On a white horse he comes and holds out the hand
She waits for...

So they ride through a valley of mist
To a castle in the heavens
Where he lays her down to rest
But he's lost and gone forever, with the dawn

See her writhe in her dream, then...

Mermaids sing in the sunset
Sadly asking if beauty ever walks free
But Queen Frost only whispers
Maidens you will remain, to be free

See her writhe in her dreams...

Lord of the seven sons!
Keeper of the keys of time!
(Hear me)
