Samuel
If anybody asks you
I was never here
I flew off into the great night
don't expect me back this way again
 
If you have time to call me
call your mom instead
say hello you're doing alright
remember how it was when you were just a kid
 
Samuel, Samuel,
keep me out of your head
 
And I will do, do my best to forgive to forget
 
don't try to find me
please forget my name
I don't go by that anymore
not the way you like to use it anyway
and if I ever see you on some city street
you won't recognize me
and I'll slip away with ease
 
Samuel, Samuel keep me out of your head

Smiling
Cartwheels in the park in our bare feet
the grass is always green there
in my memories, in my memories

You kissed me in the dark with a soft smile the air is always warm there
in my memories, in my memories

Summer love come back to me

You would hold me tight
in the early hours of the day
your arms are always safe there
in my memories, in my memories 

You were smiling and I was laughing
but we didn't notice any thing
but you were falling into my dreams

Summer love come back to me

Wild and Free
she fears him
and will always ask what fated he to choose him
she slips and he knows
all the more reason to refuse him

she's sleepless
s
he listens for the sound of him breathing excuses she knows
rising like the great sun to greet them

she's wild, flying free

she hears him
a whisper a breeze a feeling
his echo she knows
ringing from the valley where she found him


she's wild, flying free


 

Shivers (Rowland S Howard & Nick Cave) 

I've been contemplating suicide

but it really doesn't suit my style

so I guess I'll just act bored instead

and save the blood I would have shed

she makes me feel so ill at ease

my heart is really on its knees

but I wear a poker face so well

that even mother couldn't tell

 

That my babe is so vain

she is almost a mirror

and the sound of her name

sends a permanent shiver down my spine

 

I wear her photo against my heart

because in my life she plays a starring part all alcohol and cigarettes

there is no room for cheap regrets

she makes me feel so ill at ease

my heart is really on its knees

but I wear a poker face so well

that even mother couldn't tell

 

that my babe is so vain

she is almost a mirror

and the sound of her name

sends a permanent shiver down my spine

Right Reasons
It was not our fate
to fall in love that way
but we took our chances
no second glances
a glimmer of hope
or so it seemed
warm in each other's arms
but at what cost to us 


Someday we'll find love
in the right places, the right places 
someday we'll find love
for the right reasons, the right reasons

It was not our fault
we fell apart that way
two ships in the night

chasing different stars for light
we were far too young
a little over due
for a good hard look inside
so our hearts burst open wide 

Someday we'll find love
in the right places the right places
someday we'll find love
for the right reason, the right reasons

Time in a dream
cold winter memories
we'll keep spinning our wheels
and one day it will feel like spring


Someday we'll find love
in the right places, the right places 
someday we'll find love
for the right reason, the right reasons

Swan song

Bustle and caw

the wind on your wings 

to float far and free

winter will thaw

to be left red and raw

to welcome the dawn

This is a swan song dear

stay close, stay near

Hustle and Brawl

unsure of your wrongs

drawn out and prolonged

This is a swan song dear

stay close

Young one

Young one are you grieving

for the world you believe in?

Open your eyes, there's no reason to fear

As your heart grows older

it will come to sights much colder

but dear don't sigh

you can find the reasons why

And through the words of a man

with the world in his hands

take your passions kind

you were born for this let me remind

 

Now is no matter

child friend and brother

your mouth your mind 

they can tell that it's time

 

So through the words of a man

with the world in his hands

take your passions kind

you were born for this let me remind

Maybe you'll call
staying late
leaving at the break of dawn
not one word to say
breathing in, breathing out
exchanging love
looking out for the doves
to bring us the son

maybe you'll call me
maybe you're there
maybe I'll answer
and maybe you care

take me back
warm me back to life again
I'll stand by your fire of sin
and melt my cold heart
you're far away
let me say that I miss you dear

I'm waiting and I'm wishing here
that you'd bring me your light

Maybe you'll call me
maybe you're there
maybe I'll answer
and maybe you care

Western Wind

Every western wind just leads me here swallowing a pool of my own fears certainly at night I dream of you

certain things were just for me and you 

 

I can feel you in the air some time filling up my lungs with verdant life certainly it feels like I'm brand new certain things remind me of the truth

 

I can still recall the day you left

now you're running circles in my head certainly I've had a drink or two

certain things were just for me and you 

 

Oh I'd like to hold you once again
