I Think It's a Love Song

My skin peels, I feel like steel,
like an empty glass, that needs a refill.
Look at my face, 'cause it compensates,
the taste of the oppisite of grace.

Say my name, 'cause it lost its flame.
Touch my hair, 'cause I lost my flair.
Talk to me and you will see:
my voice sounds like a stretch melody!

'Cause you are the man,
I want to hold your hand.
You are the one,
that I finally want!

Why-y-y-y-y? Why-y-y-y-y?

Kiss my lips! Feel my hips!
Look into my eyes, until they farewell disguise.
Hold me close, 'cause I'm a withered rose.
Nobody to be hold and no water to unfold.

Make me smile, I haven't smiled for a while!
Make me laugh, 'cause I hold my breath.
Whisper to me, that you see through me!
Your voice sounds like a soft melody.

'Cause you are the man,
I want to hold your hand.
You are the one,
that I finally want!

But you, you sacrifice!
You wave from the left to the right!
And I, I close my eyes,
shaking and trembling and crying and asking me
why-y-y-y, why-y-y-y-y. (mmhmh)

Should I be feelin' sorry?
Should I be feelin' sorry?
Should I be feelin' sorry?
Should I be feelin' sorry?
Should I be feelin' sorry?
(Yeaeaeaeaaaah)

You are the man,
I want to hold your hand.
You are the one,
that I finally want!

But you, you sacrifice!
You wave from the left to the right!
And I, I close my eyes,
shaking asking me why?

I Believed

I wake up and I look in the mirror mirror mirror
mirror on the wall.
While the sun came up,
I woke up in a nightmare.
Put my make up on, but I'm not feeling better
but I gotta try to shut the door,
so when my heart pinched up
I leave home to get out there.

I wished I could have loved a little less
and I don't want to come across obsessed.
Baby I just got an issue with you.

'Cause I can feel you
Everytime that I breath.
Reading through my heart beat
beating up the same sad song.

Does she see you?
See you for what you are?
Knowing how you lie?
Bet she just believes like
I believed in you.
I believed in you.

Sometimes when I picture you with her,
wanna scream and tell her how it feels
to be loved and lost.
I hope she has a heart of stone.
Last week when I saw you together
just like we were, just before the storm.
And I'm so exhausted.
I know I must, but I can't move on.

I know the things that we were gonna be
you gave it someone else who wasn't me.
And I just have an issue with you.

'Cause I can feel you
Everytime that I breath.
Reading through my heart beat
beating up the same sad song.

Does she see you?
See you for what you are?
Knowing how you lie?
Bet she just believes like
I believed in you.
I believed in you.

'Cause I can feel you
everytime that I breath.

Does she see you?
See you for what you are?
Knowing how you lie?
Bet she just believes like
I believed in you.
I believed in you.
I believed in you.
I believed in you.
I believed in you.

Lie To Me

Fairytales are all lies and illusion
in my life, love is frail and confusing.
I don't mind, really no I don't mind.
Driving fast in a car in the darkness,
chasing lights but the stars won't come out.
Guess I don't mind, really no, I don't mind.

Didn't you know,
that I can't sleep without you now.
Didn't you know
there is no me without you.

Even though we are going nowhere,
even though I am four feet under
I would rather have endless night,
die trying to make this right.

Even though I am torn to pieces
and were caught somewhere in between this,
I would rather you hold me tight,
if you can't love me then baby lie to me.

Sitting here in a room full of silence,
all I hear is the sound of you breathing.
I don't care, really no I don't care.
Hold me close say that you'll never leave me,
though your eyes tell me you don't believe it.
I don't care, really no, don't care.

Didn't you know,
that I can't sleep without you now.
Didn't you know
there is no me without you.

Even though we are going nowhere,
even though I am four feet under
I would rather have endless night,
die trying to make this right.

Even though I am torn to pieces
and were caught somewhere in between this,
I would rather you hold me tight,
if you can't love me then baby lie to me.

And I know you are lost and lonely,
baby you were supposed to love me.
And I won't let you go without a fight.

Even though we are going nowhere,
even though I am four feet under
I would rather have endless night,
die trying to make this right.

Even though I am torn to pieces
and were caught somewhere in between this,
I would rather you hold me tight,
if you can't love me then baby lie to me.

Someday We'll Linger in the Sun

Our love's a complex vintage wine,
All rotted leaves and lemon rind;
I'd spit you out, but now you're mine...

We bit the fruit, it seemed a lie,
I'll never know which way was right,
Now side by side, we face the night...

And I love you...
And I love you...

We walked the pier and back again,
It was the most scared I've ever been,
You held my hand until the end...

And I love you...
And I love you...

Don't tell me we've got time,
The subtle thief of life,
It slips away when we pay no mind...

We pulled the weeds out till the dawn,
Nearly too tired to carry on,
Someday we'll linger in the sun...

And I love you...
And I love you...

How far I'll go

I've been staring at the edge of the water
Long as I can remember, never really knowing why
I wish I could be the perfect daughter
But I come back to the water, no matter how hard I try

Every turn I take, every trail I track
Every path I make, every road leads back
To the place I know where I cannot go
Where I long to be

See the line where the sky meets the sea? It calls me
And no one knows, how far it goes
If the wind in my sail on the sea stays behind me
One day I'll know, if I go there's just no telling how far I'll go

I know everybody on this island seems so happy, on this island
Everything is by design
I know everybody on this island has a role, on this island
So maybe I can roll with mine

I can lead with pride, I can make us strong
I'll be satisfied if I play along
But the voice inside sings a different song
What is wrong with me?

See the light as it shines on the sea? It's blinding
But no one knows, how deep it goes
And it seems like it's calling out to me, so come find me
And let me know what's beyond that line, will I cross that line?

See the line where the sky meets the sea? It calls me
And no one knows, how far it goes
If the wind in my sail on the sea stays behind me
One day I'll know
How far I'll go

Just Because I'm a Woman

I can see you're disappointed by the way you look at me
And I'm sorry that I'm not the woman you thought I'd be
Yes, I've made my mistakes, but listen and understand
My mistakes are no worse than yours just because I'm a woman

So when you look at me, don't feel sorry for yourself
Just think of all the shame you might have brought somebody else
Just let me tell you this, then we'll both know where we stand
My mistakes are no worse than yours just because I'm a woman

Now a man will take a good girl and he'll ruin her reputation
But when he wants to marry, well, that's a different situation
He'll just walk off and leave her to do the best she can
While he looks for an angel to wear his wedding band

Now I know that I'm no angel, if that's what you thought you'd found
I was just the victim of a man that let me down
Yes, I've made my mistakes, but listen and understand
My mistakes are no worse than yours just because I'm a woman

New Kind Of Kick

The life is short
Filled with stuff
I don't know what for
I ain't had enough
I learned all I know
By the age of nine
But I could better myself
If I could only find

Some new kind of kick
Something I ain't have
Some new kind of buzz
Like on a go hog mad
I'm looking, I'm looking, I'm looking for
Something I ain't had before
I'm looking, I'm looking, I'm looking, I'm looking to find
Some new kind of kick
Some new kind of kick
Give me a kick, kick
I want some new kind of kick

Like baby needs mom
Like Susie needs dick
This baby needs...

Some new kind of kick
I want some new kind of kick
Some new kind of kick
Some new kind of kick
I want some new kind of kick
I'm looking, I'm looking, I'm looking for
Something I ain't had before
I'm looking, I'm looking, I'm looking, I'm looking to find
Some new kind of kick
Some new kind of kick
Some new kind of kick
I want some new kind of kick
Some new kind of kick

BILL:If you had to guess why she left you alive what whould be your guess?
SOFIE:I guess it wouldn't be nessesary. She informed me...She said i could keep my wicked life for two reasons...

I want him to know what l want him to know. And l want them all to know they'll all soon be as dead as O-ren.'
BILL:One more thing, Sofie... Is she aware that her daughter is still alive?

When Winter Comes

When winter comes
When life is frozen
When the moors they hide away under the snow
Fingers of doom
Will clutch the chosen
All beasts will shiver, from the lion to the crow

When winter comes
When times are starkest
When the wailing of the wolves fades with the sun
The wilds are numb
The days are darkest
The fates of many cease to rest on

Walls will not hold the winter
Over and under crawl
Walls will not hold the winter
All in the way will fall

When winter comes
When thrones are idle
When the brave they cower under eyes of blue
The rising roar
The endless cycle
Turns the darkest myths of yesterday to truth

Walls will not hold the winter
Over and under crawl
Walls will not hold the winter
All in the way will fall

Walls will not hold the winter
Over and under crawl
Walls will not hold the winter
All in the way will fall

Is This What You Wanted

You were the promise at dawn
I was the morning after
You were Jesus Christ, my Lord
I was the money lender
You were the sensuous woman
I was the very reverend Freud
You were the manual orgasm
I was the dirty little boy

And is this what you wanted
To live in a house that is haunted
By the ghost of you and me?
Is this what you wanted
To live in a house that is haunted
By the ghost of you and me?

You were Marlon Brando
I was Steve McQueen
You were K-Y Jelly
I was Vaseline
You were the father of modern medicine
I was Mr. Clean
You were the Whore and the Beast of Babylon
I was Rin Tin Tin

And is this what you wanted
To live in a house that is haunted
By the ghost of you and me?
Is this what you wanted
To live in a house that is haunted
By the ghost of you and me?

You got old and wrinkled
I stayed seventeen
You lusted after so many, baby
I lay here with one
You defied your solitude
I came through alone
And you said that you could never love me
I undid your gown

And is this what you wanted
To live in a house that is haunted
By the ghost of you and me?
Is this what you wanted
To live in a house that is haunted
By the ghost of you and me?

Yeah, is this what you wanted
To live in a house that is haunted
By the ghost of you and me?
Oh, is this what you wanted
To live in a house that is haunted
By the ghost of you and me?
Get down

Circle of Death

Wait for me on the other side.
Wait for me on the other side.

What makes you think you're different?
If I shoot you, you bleed to death.
What makes you think you're special?
If I break your bones it hurts like hell.

I'll break you

What makes you think you're chosen?
If I smash you, you'll suffer till the end.
What makes you think you're something better?
You don't realize you're already dead.

Death makes no difference.
Time is passing by.
Death makes no difference.
Even the beauty must die.

Wait for me on the other side.

When the hurt is over

Baby you hurt me
and i know that i've hurt you

we've both promised
to always be true

we'd let our love
get lost in the rain

now we are waiting
Oh for love to live again
Holding on
To what was before
Oh lord i see
Why did we have to let it go
Now the only thing
That i know
The only thing
That i think i'd know
When the hurt is over
Lord, maybe love will flow

Trying to do
What we know we must
When you love somebody
You know you got to trust
I think about it
again and again
I say that i will baby
Oh but i don't know if i can
You say you're sorry
Oh i say i am too
then we turn round and round
then again we'd be untrue
that is why, that is why, the only thing
that i know
the only thing baby
that i know
when the hurt is over, baby
maybe love will flow

Guess by chance
We'd work things out
we both will know
what love is all about
don't move so quickly
Oh it don't move too fast
if you got a good love
Oh you ought to try to make it last
i know i hurt you
lord you broke my heart
and now we are sad baby
because our love is apart
that is why i say to you, the only thing
that i know
the only thing baby, i think i know
Oh baby
When the hurt is over
Lord maybe love will flow

I said when the hurt is over, baby
And all the pain is gone

Maybe i will learn how to love again y'all

When the hurt is over, over
Lord when all the pain is gone

Under the Grey Clouded Winter Sky

Grey clouds cover the winter sky
Cold snow falls like autumn leaves to the ground

The icy wind
Pierces the skin of waiting warriors
Like spears will pierce their bodies in battle

Frosted beards on pale grey faces
Eyes of death are burning with rage

Glancing across the fields of Tyr
In the early morning light

Grey clouds cover the winter sky
Cold snow falls like autumn leaves to the ground

The icy wind
Pierces the skin of waiting warriors
Like spears
Will pierce their bodies in battle

War cries break the silent wait
Charging warriors rush to kill
Swords are swung in the air
The gods of war are called

Vikings with fire in soul
Clash on the open field
Slaying with powerful strokes
The snow is turning red

Hooves gallop the plains
Warlords on horsebacks
Ride into battle
With a thunderous roar

The storm wind of death
Blows across the field
Sweeping with it
Everything in its way

So the battle settles
Alone stands just one man
Under the grey-clouded winter sky, alone..

The Mighty Doors of the Speargod's Hall

A battle on a distant shore
Seawolves' wrath sweeps the land
Down from the sky Valkyries ride
And walk the field, hallowed by Tyr

The fight is hard, axes swung
Swords bite sharp, men are slain
The ground turns red, blood-soaked field
Dead man's last bed and Oden sees

Vikings fall, in blood they lie
The web of Norns
They've met their fate
With shield and sword
They're brought in pride
To mighty doors of the speargod's hall

The gates open and into the hall of braves
They silently walk
The one-eyed sits in glory might
Raises his cup and says:

'På vida fältet
Har man svingat
Det blankat svärdet
Och banen mött
Till den höges sal
De i ära förts
Och vid mjödet hör
Oden kvada'

Dawn breaks the Einhärjar goes to
Relive their last fight
With passion, swords held high
As they ride in the morning mist

The sun warms the air
War cries sound
'Tor hjälpe!'
The battle begins

Charging horses with fire in breath
Rush to battle - in glory die!

Swords sing in joy
Again they cut
With shining edges
Blood-stained steel

Axes shine, again they're swung
Ripping flesh - death be done

The cold night comes
With charging darkness
To Oden's hall
The Einhärjar return

A feast awaits until the next day
When warriors' eyes again shall burn

Sorrow Throughout the Nine Worlds

(Balder) Nightmares
Demons haunt my taunted mind
I'm scared
My death's forseen ungloryful
Plase father
Make my demons disappear
Please mother
Death is everywhere

(Odin) My son I've seen your fear
I have felt your pain
No harm will come to you
An oath has been sworn

(Balder) The evil forces around us
Still wants to destroy me
Who is the evil slayer
I cannot see

Loke the deceitful god
Discover the arrow of death

Pointed for the Hoder the blind
by the jealous Loke
The arrow cut through the skin
And into the heart of the bright one

Silence spread throughout the hall Aesir
As the god of light fe to his knees dying!

Sorrow throughout the nine worlds
The bright god is gone
Sent to Nifelheim by the deceitful...

John Brown s body

John Brown's body lies a-moldering in the grave
John Brown's body lies a-moldering in the grave
John Brown's body lies a-moldering in the grave
But his soul goes marching on

Glory, Glory, Hallelujah
Glory, Glory, Hallelujah
Glory, Glory, Hallelujah
His soul goes marching on

The stars above in Heaven are looking kindly down
The stars above in Heaven are looking kindly down
The stars above in Heaven are looking kindly down
On the grave of old John Brown

Glory, Glory, Hallelujah
Glory, Glory, Hallelujah
Glory, Glory, Hallelujah
His soul goes marching on

He captured Harper's Ferry with his nineteen men so true
He frightened old Virginia till she trembled through and through
They hung him for a traitor, they themselves the traitor crew
But his soul goes marching on

Glory, Glory, Hallelujah
Glory, Glory, Hallelujah
Glory, Glory, Hallelujah
His soul goes marching on

He's gone to be a soldier in the Army of the Lord,
He's gone to be a soldier in the Army of the Lord,
He's gone to be a soldier in the Army of the Lord,
But his soul goes marching on.

Glory, Glory, Hallelujah
Glory, Glory, Hallelujah
Glory, Glory, Hallelujah
His soul goes marching on

Time

Said all these people they won't leave me alone
And we need, a little time to ourselves
And half the reasons why
I'm sketchin' all the time
The result of a life in this hell
But oh well, I think it's time

My faith is falling like the leaves from a tree
The pockets both take it away
The sun warms my body as I'm
Sittin' on a swing watching
Columbus clouds bring in the rain
Oh well I think it's time
Its time to go

My mind is playing tricks on me all the time
To let you know that I am real
And all the worries you build
Up inside your soul
The ones that make your world stand still
Mean you can feel, that it's time to go..
Are you fed up, Are you fed up with me?
Do you think you could do better?
Do you think that I know better?
Do they think that they know better?

Five fed up faces with the itch to kill a king
Blood red sunrise, and a breath to air that's clean
I drink from the faucet
From the porch I take a pee
I look at you through the bushes
Where you can't see me

I laugh and slip into another state of mind
To let you know that I am real
And all the worries you build up inside your soul
The ones that make your world stand still
Means you can feel, that it's time to go

Somebody That I Used To Know

I had tender feelings that you made hard
But it's your heart, not mine, that's scarred
So when I go home I'll be happy to go
You're just somebody that I used to know.

You don't need my help anymore
It's all now to you, there ain't no before
Now that you're big enough to run your own show
You're just somebody that I used to know.

I watched you deal in a dying day
And throw a living past away
So you can be sure that you're in control
You're just somebody that I used to know.

I know you don't think you did me wrong
And I can't stay this mad for long
Keeping ahold of what you just let go
You're just somebody that I used to know.

After you my friend

Here he is, he saves a grin
He wants to be the one who doesn't have to sink a level
Indiscrete, in his retreat
All he needs is just a taste of the bitter pride
He held in her name
Embrace the solitude in an ordinary fucked up state of grace
Far away from the days he bared the cross she used to wear
In some resolve well aware
A little pitiful, a pin up boy they dress in grieving wear
Well at ease in consent in the drift of undertow
He won't justify the pity from them
When he knows....fools in love are arrogant
Their sermons cloud his breathing air
He's in love with an isolation from emotion
Here he is awaiting sentence
A fool to think that anyone can escape guilt and anguish
A subtlety that can't be learned
A subtlety that can't be taught
He is caught in the lure of second thoughts
He might still care
As he settles down well aware
Bound in secrecy. His voice will only dignify their fears
But sorrow is signified
He's well aware of his pride

LA

The gentleman's in the lane
Spinning his hat on a cane
Stepping out, out for a change
Good morning all, it's a beautiful day.

The generals are winning a war
That seemed suicidal before you came along
Now I'll protect you, long as you'll stay.

LA
Morning had to come, I'd be walking in the sun
Living in the day
But last night I was about to throw it all away.

If patience started a band
I'd be her biggest fan
Look at me, I'm talking to you
I don't want the lead in your play.

The star's just a part of the scene
The gentleman in green
Paying off out on the street
I can't go home, it's not on my way.

LA
Things I've never done, cars parked in the sun
Living in the day
But last night I was about to throw it all away
Last night I was about to throw it all away
Last night I was about to throw it all away
Last night I was about to throw it all away.

F.U.

[Verse 1: Jesy]
All damn night I was here waiting
Cooked your favourite, dressed up real nice
I know you were with her, I know that you kissed her
You came home late and I was so mad
Had my break up speech ready
Then you kissed my face
It's the way you persuade me

[Pre-Chorus: Jade]
You're dirty, disgusting
But I can't get enough of your loving
Boy I hate you, really hate you
My momma said I shouldn't date you
You cheatin', you lyin'
I know that you're hiding two cellphones
But boy, right before I say that it's the end

[Chorus: Jade + All]
You sweet talk me again, yo
I don't wanna be friends, no
Why am I such a fool when it comes to you
A, B, C, D, E E EEEE, F.U

[Verse 2: Leigh-Anne]
All my friends say I'm a sucker
Can't explain it's complicated
I wish you were dead 'till you take me to bed
You're so good, so good
You lead on my love
With those brown eyes and that body
I'll get my revenge, take my key to your Benz

[Pre-Chorus: Perrie]
You're dirty, disgusting
But I can't get enough of your loving
Boy I hate you, really hate you
My momma said I shouldn't date you
You cheatin', you lyin'
I know that you're hiding two cellphones
But boy, right before I say that it's the end

[Chorus: Perrie + All]
You sweet talk me again, yo
I don't wanna be friends, no
Why am I such a fool when it comes to you
A, B, C, D, E E EEEE, F.U

[Bridge: Jesy]
I wanna say 'shoo, shoo'
I wanna say 'screw you'
I practice my lines in the mirror
Then you smile, that's my killer
So I say 'love you' and 'baby, I need you'
Cause you're drop dead gorgeous
And Cupid ain't coming to warn us

[Jesy]
You're dirty, disgusting
[All]
But I can't get enough of your loving
[Jade]
Boy I hate you, really hate you
My momma said I shouldn't date you
[Perrie]
You cheatin', you lyin'
I know that you're hiding two cellphones
[Leigh-Anne]
But boy, right before I say that it's the end

[Chorus: All]
You sweet talk me again, yo
I don't wanna be friends, no
[Jade]
Why am I such a fool when it comes to you
[Jesy]
A, B, C, D, E E EEEE, F.U

Whitestone Bridge

Climbing in the car, climbing in the car
And we’re rolling cross the Whitestone
Listen to the car, listen to the car
As we roll across the Whitestone
Getting nearer, getting nearer
Getting to your red lights
And I’m rolling cross the Whitestone Bridge
And I’m rolling cross the heaven-held ridge
And I‘m rolling cross the Whitestone

See the lovely sky, see the lovely sky
And the evening full of aeros
Not so long ago, not so long ago
I was high above there
See the lovely, see the lovely, see the lovely red sun
And I’m rolling cross the Whitestone Bridge
Yeh I’m rolling cross the heaven –held ridge
And I’m rolling cross the Whitestone bridge.

And it makes me feel not so far from you
Ah, it makes me feel not so far, not so far from you
And it makes me feel not so far from you

We’re not so far away, we’re not so far away
And we turn into the southward
The lights are full of wheels, the lights are full of wheels
And there’s sorrow on the airwaves
You radio, you radio you’re reaching to the people
And I’m rolling cross the Whitestone
Rolling cross the Whitestone
Rolling cross the Whitestone Bridge
And it makes me feel not so far from you
And it makes me feel not so far, not so far from you.

The Wind Was High

The wind was high and the sky was blue
The last day I spent with you
The wind was high and the sky was blue
Last day I spent with you

In the morning we woke
and we clung so close together
It was a good day to sail
In the morning we woke
and we clung so close together
I could feel you were afraid

And that’s the way, that’s the way
We feel today,
That’s the way, that’s the way we feel
That’s the way, that’s the way
We feel today,
That’s the way, that’s the way we feel

I took your things down to the boat train
That was waiting on the line
When we kissed goodbye we were laughing
But afraid that we might cry
And I walked away and I turned to wave
But the train it just stood there
And oh, when I looked again
That station it was bare

And that’s the way, that’s the way
We feel today,
That’s the way, that’s the way we feel
And that’s the way, that’s the way
We feel today,
That’s the way, that’s the way we feel
And that’s the way, that’s the way
We feel today,
That’s the way, that’s the way we feel

Strong in the Sun

Oh I just can't believe it
when I look out my back window
and I see you coming down the road
you've got your cases in your hand
and I don't understand
you're coming to stay with me
you're coming to stay with me.

We're gonna be strong in the sun
we're gonna show everyone
we're gonna be warm in the night
we're gonna be free. [x2]

Oh I feel so happy
when I look out my back window
and I see you playing with the kids
you're making daisy chains I can hear them say
that they love you just like I do, just like I do.

We're gonna be strong in the sun
we're gonna show everyone
we're gonna be warm in the night
we're gonna be free. [x6]

When I Came Down

When I came down from the sky
back to your town I'd been so long away
I telephoned you at your house
just to see, did you still live there?
oh you did, oh you did, oh you did.

And you came rolling down the road
hair blond flying in the evening
you looked the same, you never changed
shook your head and laughed the way you used to
oh you did, oh you did, oh you did.

Oh you are still a mystery to me
oh you are still a mystery to me.

You said you heard me on your radio
and I sang a song I wrote for you
can you believe me when I tell you
I meant every word and I still do
oh I do, oh I do, oh I do.

But I forget the days I spent here
sunny days of living was so peaceful
but all that changed the day you walked away
left me standing aching in the rain
oh you did, oh you did, oh you did.

Oh you are still a mystery to me
oh you are still a mystery to me.

When I came down from the sky
back to your town I'd been so long away
I telephoned you at your house
just to see, did you still live there?
oh you did, oh you did, oh you did.

Oh you are still a mystery to me
oh you are still a mystery to me.

Oh you are still a mystery to me
oh you are still a mystery to me.

Dante

Summer came from somewhere
It lay across the land
Soil was fine and warm in the hand
The shepherdess and the sheepdog
They kept a loving view
On starry nights fat lambs might stray
From the ewe
For summer came from somewhere
Now her journey's done
Dante loves the summer sun.

White clover and mountains
A sight to fill the eye
Yet eyes have seen and still wonder why
Dante turns for home again
Her rosy cheeks at evensong
But she won't leave her flock very long

For summer came from somewhere
Now her journey's done
Dante loves the summer sun.

For summer came from somewhere
Now her journey's done
Dante loves the summer sun.

For summer came from somewhere
Now her journey's done
Dante loves the summer sun.

Boat Song

My boat moved out to sea
And friends grew small from me
Waving from the shore
Will I see you more?
The land is misty, my eyes are too
The gulls are crying for me and you.

And now the sea is all around
But still above the seabirds sound
Gliding round the stern
When we land will they return?
The land is misty, my eyes are too
The gulls are crying for me and you.

My boat moved out to sea
And friends grew small from me
Waving from the shore
Will I see you more?

Mariner Blues

You would stand with the early sun
On the rope that held my boat
And the wheeling seagull began to wonder
Why I'd missed the tide
You sometimes came to brown your arms
And you sat upon the stern
And you thought how fine the valleys were
In between each crest
And you might say, yes you might say
The mariner is glad.

The gull flew down one morning
As I was setting out to sea
And told me in his language
You'd bid your goodbyes to me
I climbed up to your house
And tapped upon your windows
But all I saw within your rooms
Were paintings of the sea
And warm pullovers on the floor
And boots with sandy heels
And drawings that you made of me
While sailing out to sea
And you might say, yes you might say
The mariner is sad.

Our Love Will Not Decay

Were the calf to die in the womb
And the ewe to bear her lamb too soon
Should the field of barley fail
And the baby at your breast grow pale
Our love will not mildewed grow – no.

Were the snow to last until spring
And your fingers blue up to the ring
Should you curse the icy blast
All your beauty it destroys at last
Our love will not mildewed grow – no.

But with every new born day
The same thought through our lives will always stay
And the sun will shine through the dew
The baby will have rosy cheeks like you
Our love will not mildewed grow – no.
