I Hung My Head

Early one morning
With time to kill
I borrowed Jeb's rifle
And sat on the hill
I saw a lone rider
Crossing the plain
I drew a bead on him
To practice my aim
My brother's rifle
Went off in my hand
A shot rang out
Across the land
The horse he kept running
The rider was dead
I hung my head I hung my head

I set off running
To wake from the dream
My brother's rifle
Went into the stream
I kept on running
Into the salt lands
And that's where they found me
My head in my hands
The sheriff he asked me
Why had I run
Then it came to me
Just what I had done
And all for no reason
Just one piece of lead
I hung my head I hung my head

Here in the courthouse
The whole town is there
I see the judge
High up in his chair
"Explain to the courtroom
What went through your mind
And we'll ask the jury
What verdict they find"
I said "I felt the power
Of death over life
I orphaned his children
I widowed his wife
I beg their forgiveness
I wish I was dead"
I hung my head I hung my head

Early one morning
With time to kill
I see the gallows
Up on the hill
And out in the distance
A trick of the brain
I see a lone rider
Crossing the plain
He's come to fetch me
To see what they done
We'll ride together
'Til kingdom come
I pray for God's mercy
For soon I'll be dead
I hung my head I hung my head

 

I Need You Like This Hole in My Head

Lady Dolphin and her dolphin beau
Were swimming out to sea one day
All the other lady dolphins smiled
But they were smiling in that subtle dolphin way

So they pretended that they'd pay it no mind
But she was female, of the jealous kind
She couldn't stand it not to ask him why
She could see that he was flattered by the twinkle in his eye

She said, "How much do you need me?
How much do you need me?
Would you stay with me 'til this ocean floor is dry?
But if you cannot find the words that say
I'm the only one you love that way
I guess we'll have to say goodbye"

He said, "My love for you is wider than the wide Sargasso Sea
There ain't no bigger number I know, but
I never counted every ripple on the sea."

He said that words had never failed him yet
"But before our future course is set
I have to find a way to win you dear
But there's two atmospheres of pressure on me here"

"How much do I need you? How much do I need you?
Can't seem to find the words to make you stay
But remember all the things I've said
That I'll love you 'til the day I'm dead
'Cause I need you like this hole in my head
I need you like this hole in my head

 

I Need Your Love So Bad

Sting's version:
Need some one's hands to help me through the night
Need some one's arms to hold and squeeze me tight
'Cause when the night begins and I'm at an end
That's when I need your love so bad

Need your sweet voice to whisper in my ear
Need your gentle fingertips babe to wipe away my tears
Cause when the lights are low and it's time to go
That's when I need your love so bad

Why don't you give it up
And bring it all back home to me baby
write it on a piece of me paper
So it can be read to me
Tell me that you love me
Cause you're allmost driving me mad
Oh, because I need, I need your love so bad

Need your sweet voice to help me through the night
You don't have to worry baby
Cause you know everything is gonna be all right
When the lights are low and it's time to go
That's when I need your love so bad

I need.... solo

Why don't you give it up
And bring it all back home to me baby
Write it on a piece of me paper
So it can be read to me
Tell me that you love me
Cause you're allmost driving me mad
Oh, because I need, I need your love so bad

Need your sweet lipos to help me through the night
You don't have to worry baby
Cause you know everything is gonna be all right
Listen to my plea bring it to me

Because I need your love so bad

 

I Saw Three Ships

I saw three ships come sailing in
On Christmas day, on Christmas day
I saw three ships come sailing in
On Christmas day in the morning.

And what was in those ships all three?
On Christmas day, on Christmas day
And what was in those ships all three?
On Christmas day in the morning.

Our Saviour, Christ, and His Lady,
On Christmas day, on Christmas day
Our Saviour, Christ, and His Lady,
On Christmas day in the morning.

Pray, whither sailed those ships all three?
On Christmas day, on Christmas day
Pray, whither sailed those ships all three?
On Christmas day in the morning.

O, they sailed to Bethlehem,
On Christmas day, on Christmas day
O, they sailed to Bethlehem,
On Christmas day in the morning.

And all the bells on earth shall ring,
On Christmas day, on Christmas day
And all the bells on earth shall ring,
On Christmas day in the morning.

And all the angels in heaven shall sing,
On Christmas day, on Christmas day
And all the angels in heaven shall sing,
On Christmas day in the morning.

And all the souls on earth shall sing,
On Christmas day, on Christmas day
And all the souls on earth shall sing,
On Christmas day in the morning.

Then let us all rejoice and sing,
On Christmas day, on Christmas day
Then let us all rejoice and sing,
On Christmas day in the morning

 

I Was Brought To My Senses

Alone with my thoughts this evening
I walked on the banks of Tyne
I wondered how I could win you
Or if I could make you mine
Or if I could make you mine

The wind it was so insistent
With tales of a stormy south
But when I spied two birds in a sycamore tree
There came a dryness in my mouth
Came a dryness in my mouth

For then without rhyme or reason
The two birds did rise up to fly
And where the two birds were flying
I swear I saw you and I
I swear I saw you and I

I walked out this morning
It was like a veil had been removed from
Before my eyes
For the first time I saw the work of heaven
In the line where the hill had been
Married to the sky
And all around me every blade of singing grass
Was calling out your name and that
Our love would always last
And inside every turning leaf
Is the pattern of an older tree
The shape of our future
The shape of all our history
And out of the confusion
Where the river meets the sea
Came things I'd never seen
Things I'd never seen

I was brought to my senses
I was blind but now that I can see
Every signpost in nature
Said you belong to me

I know it's true
It's written in a sky as blue
As blue as your eyes, as blue as your eyes
If nature's red in tooth and claw
Like winter's freeze and summer's thaw
The wounds she gave me
Were the wounds that would heal me
And we'd be like the moon and sun
And when our courtly dance had run
Its course across the sky
Then together we would lie
And out of the confusion
Where the river meets the sea
Something new would arrive
Something better would arrive

I was brought to my senses
I was blind but now that I can see
Every signpost in nature
Said you belong to me

 

If I Ever Lose My Faith

You could say I lost my faith in science and progress
You could say I lost my belief in the holy church
You could say I lost my sense of direction
You could say all of this and worse but

If I ever lose my faith in you
There'd be nothing left for me to do

Some would say I was a lost man in a lost world
You could say I lost my faith in the people on TV
You could say I lost my belief in our politicians
They all seemed like game show hosts to me

If I ever lose my faith in you
There'd be nothing left for me to do

I could be lost inside their lies
Without a trace
But everytime I close my eyes
I see your face

Never saw no miracle of science
That didn't go from a blessing to a curse
Never saw no military solution
That didn't end up as something worse but
Let me say this first

If I ever lose my faith in you
(If I ever lose my faith in you)
There'd be nothing left for me to do
(There'd be nothing left for me to do)

If I ever lose my faith
If I ever lose my faith
If I ever lose my faith
If I ever lose my faith...in you

 

If I Ever Lose My Faith In You

You could say I lost my faith in science and progress
You could say I lost my belief in the holy church
You could say I lost my sense of direction
You could say all of this and worse, but
If I ever lose my faith in you
There'd be nothing left for me to do

Some would say I was a lost man in a lost world
You could say I lost my faith in the people on TV
You could say I'd lost my belief in our politicians
They all seemed like game show hosts to me
If I ever lose my faith in you
There'd be nothing left for me to do
I could be lost inside their lies without a trace
But every time I close my eyes I see your face

I never saw no miracle of science
That didn't go from a blessing to a curse
I never saw no military solution
That didn't always end up as something worse, but
Let me say this first
If I ever lose my faith in you
There'd be nothing left for me to do

 

If You Love Somebody Set Them Free

If you need somebody, call my name
If you want someone, you can do the same
If you want to keep something precious
You got to lock it up and throw away the key
If you want to hold onto your possession
Don't even think about me

If you love somebody, set them free

If it's a mirror you want, just look into my eyes
Or a whipping boy, someone to despise
Or a prisoner in the dark
Tied up in chains you just can't see
Or a beast in a gilded cage
That's all some people ever want to be

If you love somebody, set them free

You can't control an independent heart
Can't tear the one you love apart
Forever conditioned to believe that we can't live
We can't live here and be happy with less
So many riches, so many souls
Everything we see we want to possess

If you need somebody, call my name
If you want someone, you can do the same
If you want to keep something precious
You got to lock it up and throw away the key
If you want to hold onto your possession
Don't even think about me

If you love somebody, set them free

 

If You There

Your beauty pulses like a distant star
Once you were so near to me
And now you've gone so far

Wretched and affixed the word is in his stone [?]
Lying now don't move nor speak no statue here alone

Living here just with a memory
A simple recollection that's so dear to me
You said it's logical that we should part
What's pleasing to my intellect
Must surely break my heart
Man will always want what he can't have
It's more than he can do just to be brave
He seeks perfection in a thousand ways
Just throw another shovel on his grave

Born to live
Born to die
Born to wonder
Why, why, why, why

If you there
Would you leave me wondering?
If you there
Am I one man only?
If you there
Don't leave me wondering
If you there

You say that all we have is what we see
Baby all you understand is a little part of me
You said that I could never be the one
Promises evaporate in the angle of the sun
If the only certain thing is death
Walk a little nearer to it now with every breath
And if this time must wear a velvet glove
Then kindness and lies are the true friends of love

Man will always want what he can't have
It's more than he can do just to be brave
He seeks perfection in a thousand ways
Throw another shovel on his grave

Born to live
Born to die
Born to wonder
Why, why, why, why

If you there
Would you leave me wondering?
If you there
Am I one man only?
If you there
Don't leave me wondering
If you there

 

Ill Be Missing You

Alone with my thoughts this evening
I walked on the banks of Tyne.
I wondered how I could win you
Of if I could make you mine,
Or if I could make you mine.

But when I spied two birds in a sycamore tree,
There came a dryness in my mouth,
Came a dryness in my mouth.

And where the two birds were flying,
I swear I saw you and I,
I swear I saw you and I.

And that our love would always last.
And inside every turning leave

The shape of all our history.
And out of the confusion

Came things I´d never seen,
Things I´d never seen.
I was brought to my senses,
