Tapestry

My life has been a tapestry of rich and royal hue
An everlasting vision of the ever-changing view
A wondrous, woven magic in bits of blue and gold
A tapestry to feel and see, impossible to hold
 
Once amid the soft silver sadness in the sky
There came a man of fortune, a drifter passing by
He wore a torn and tattered cloth around his leathered hide
And a coat of many colors, yellow-green on either side
 
He moved with some uncertainty, as if he didn't know
Just what he was there for, or where he ought to go
Once he reached for something golden hanging from a tree
And his hand came down empty
 
Soon within my tapestry along the rutted road
He sat down on a river rock and turned into a toad
It seemed that he had fallen into someone's wicked spell
And I wept to see him suffer, though I didn't know him well
 
As I watched in sorrow, there suddenly appeared
A figure gray and ghostly beneath a flowing beard
In times of deepest darkness, I've seen him dressed in black
Now my tapestry's unraveling - he's come to take me back
He's come to take me back

Nature Boy

There was a boy
A very strange enchanted boy
They say he wandered very far, very far
Over land and sea
A little shy and sad of eye
But very wise was he

And then one day
A magic day he passed my way
And while we spoke of many things
Fools and kings
This he said to me
The greatest thing you'll ever learn
Is just to love and be loved in return

Oh, the greatest thing you'll ever learn
Is just to love and be loved in return

The greatest thing you'll ever learn
Is just to love and be loved in return

Carry Me

I'm a long way from home
I feel the weight in my bones
I'm tired like a sinner
I'm cold and my money's all gone
 
I'm ashamed of the things that I've done
Feeling love is like facing a gun
The closer you get
The farther that I'm gonna run
 
If I keep on hiding, how will I be known?
I keep telling myself that I'm better alone
When my father will carry me
 
If I came back and fell at your feet
Would you even recognize me?
I'm worn and I'm weathered
And your love is the shelter I need
 
If I keep on hiding, how will I be known?
I keep telling myself that I'm better alone
When my father will carry me
 
If I keep on hiding, how will I be known?
I keep telling myself that I'm better alone
When I fall, when I fall
When my father will carry me home
Carry me home
 

Burn

If your light is dark
How deep that darkness is
You’re living like a loose bolt
Spinning at the head

Now that you’re glorious death
Now that you’re faithless flesh
Now that you’re spiritless void
You’re hanging on by a thread

I’m living
So separate
Full of hell
Judge just waiting

I’m dying
Restless youth
Full of hell
Like i’ve always been

Burn after you read
Love i cannot keep
Only in my sleep
Only when i dream

Jonny

Johnny (oh, yeah),
You got it all figured out
Johnny (oh, yeah),
You know just how to go about
You flash you smile (oh, baby) And keep your cool

Johnny (oh, yeah),
You've got the style and the touch
Johnny (oh, yeah),
I'd say you're almost too much...
It's clear to see (oh, baby) You know I was fool

Oh, I love the way you pamper me
Everything's is how it ought to be
Candle light and pink champagne on ice
A certain glance just once or twice

And the music is so very right
As you whisper: 'We got time all night',
I admit you are a perfect host
Your care for me deserves a toast

Johnny (oh, yeah),
You got it all figured out
Johnny (oh, yeah),
You know just how to go about

You flash you smile (oh, baby) And keep your cool

How romantic near the fireplace
You and I together face to face
Guess you're certain I'm no match for you
I'll do what all the others do

Much as I admire your strategy
I'm afraid it just won't work with me
If there's something that I don't enjoy
It's being treated like a toy

Johnny, oh, yeah,
You thought that you have a ball
Johnny, oh, yeah,
You know that you can't win them all
So please be kind (oh, baby) And take me home

Johnny, oh, yeah,
La-la-la-la la-la-la
Johnny, oh, yeah,
La-la-la-la la-la-la
So please be kind (oh, baby) And take me home
