All We Need

image4

Well I was born at one in the morning

In early March without any warning

and since then

I have been floating through life

Just watching the world pass me by

Just watching the world pass by


And all that I've seen has been rocks to a stream

Leaves that are falling and thistles in the breeze

But I see / All that I need


You were born from the embers and ash

Of autumn's death

You barely draw breath as you sing

So cold and so fierce / so soft and so scared

Not watching the world pass you by

But running along with a smile


And all that I've seen has been rocks to a stream

Leaves that are falling and thistles in the breeze

But I see / All that I need


Children of winter / children of spring

It's you who call my heart to sing

You're the gold in the mountain

The fire in the hearth

You're buried so deep in my heart


And all that I've seen has been rocks to a stream

Leaves that are falling and thistles in the breeze

But I see / All that I need

Now I have all that I need



Autumn Nights

image5

These are the dark days and the cold nights

The long months and the deep desire

To tear yourself open and see what's inside


Oh when the rain comes down and the trees fall

The wind blows strong in the heart of the storm

It's the dark days and the cold nights

That we tear ourselves open to see what's inside


Those sweet summer months have been left behind

and we spend our nights by the friendly fire

Pay heed to dreams only half-remembered

Sad though we lay in the arms of another


There's something inside you that you can't explain

A beast hidden deep you're not sure you can tame

Your friends, though they love you, continue to doubt

But soon will they see you can stand strong without


These are the dark days and the cold nights

The long months and the deep desire

To tear yourself open and see what's inside


Oh when the rain comes down and the trees fall

The wind blows strong in the heart of the storm

It's the dark days and the cold nights

We tear ourselves open to see what's inside


Plastic bags flutter like ghosts trapped in trees

Crying to the wind to set them free

Shadows flicker, they run and they hide

Beneath the clutter of our daily lives


Grey light through dark clouds scudding o'er the moon

Or dark dreams in the early afternoon

The crows are watching from outside your window

You wonder with fear what they're trying to tell you


These are the dark days and the cold nights

The long months and the deep desire

To tear yourself open and see what's inside


Oh when the rain comes down and the trees fall

The wind blows strong in the heart of the storm

It's the dark days and the cold nights

When you tear yourself open to see what's inside

Hold Me Close

image6

Hold me close I think I'm drunk again

Hold me close I think I'm in love again

Hold me close

How did I end up here again?

How did I not learn my lesson?

Hold me close.


We danced the whole night through

Me with him and her with you

These games we play

They drive me insane

So put her down and hold

Hold me close again


Hold me close I think I'm drunk again

Hold me close I think I'm in love again

Hold me close

How did I end up here again?

How did I not learn my lesson?

Hold me close.


Another time I could have made you mine

But I am his and she is mine

All I wanted was a little fun

But I underestimated your

Need for love


So hold me close I think you're drunk again

Hold me close I think you're in love again

Hold me close

How did I end up here again?

How did I not learn my lesson?

Hold me close.


Again

Again again again again

Again

Again again again

Hold me close again

Hold me close I think you're drunk again

Hold me close I think you're in love again

Hold me close ...
