SHAWN COLVIN "Matter of Minutes"
Please no more therapy Mother take care of me Piece me together with a Needle and thread Wrap me in eiderdown Lace from your wedding gown Fold me and lay me down On your bed Or liken me to a shoe Blackened and spit-shined through Kicking back home to you Smiling back home Singing back home to you Laughing back home to you Dragging back home to you I was so wary then The ugly American Thinner than oxygen Tough as a whore I said you can lie to me I own what's inside of me And nothing surprises me anymore But forests in Germany Kids in the Tuileries Broken-down fortresses In old Italy And claiming his victory Shrouded in mystery He went running away with me Back in our home New York Walking these streets forlorn We all in our uniforms Black and black Doing that slouch and jive The artist must survive We've got all we need we cried And we don't look back Thinking we had it made Poised for the hit parade Knee deep in accolades The conceptual pair But ever the malcontent He left without incident Vanished into thin air Now I am always amazed Words can fill up a page Pages fill up the days Between him and me But the vows that we never keep From bedrooms to business-speak Make me remember how cheap Words can be And the letters I wrote you of Were those of the desperate stuff Like begging for love in a suicide threat But I am too young to die Too old for a lullaby Too tired for life on the ledge But I had a dream last night Of lovers who walked the plank Out on the edge of time Amidst ridicule They laughed as they rocked and reeled Over the mining fields Coming to rest on this ship of fools But he just took polaroids Of her smile in the light Of the dawn of the menacing sky And before they went overbaord She turned and held up a card And it said Valentine

The Narrow Margin

Iq
Divided by loyalty, surrounded by emotion Nobody under here, remembers any mercy at all We stay down Deciding the borderline Maya, did no-one tell you ? I couldn't have made you mine 'Cause I feel your pain more than my own All the love gone astray There will be hell to pay this time For those of us born to die There'll be none to testify Time and time again I skin the world, keel it over Spinning on its side, beginning as it ended Through these diamond eyes Maid of Morphine settled in my side Did she intervene ?BR Don't know where I know you from Time and time again I've lived enough in silence It's getting harder now to keep the violence in me Someone I once was, raised upon a gallant rider's knee Mortal memories lost among the unrecalled Set the cross of fire (if I live) These are the only ones (if I've loved) Remember who they are If I look, I see them everywhere Don't know where I know you from Told me, go the way of your heart I'll be waiting for you But wherever you are, you're not inside me now Told me, try to sleep, I will come But I'm still waiting for you And wherever you are, I'm still inside you now I'm never going to cut through without you now If I get ascension or die All the love that was mine denied All the love that you qualified Like a desert I'm open wide There's nowhere for me to hide at all For your love, I can never go back Every one of us is herded and contained Not a single one invited Voices circulate around the musty hall And the kerosene's ignited Through the rising flames that lick against the flesh Incandescent in the crossfire Do my eyes betray the longest night of all Do I see or dream of Maya ? But he's got us where he wanted us to be Undivided, under control As the narrow margin finds us face to face As he laughs across the foxhole Nowhere was ever safe enough for all of us No one contender cared about getting out Tied now behind the hungry fire meant for us Scattered like dust and finally free Held together by fear I can't be the same, too much has changed Undeniably real and it's better left unsaid All the love you said was nothing Find a rhinestone not a diamond I never wanted this Left alive and laid to rest Told me I was brighter than most And I believed it all then Through the dangerous times I needed more than cold eyes I want to be alone To dream myself away from darkness and decay As I try to forget it No-one entered into my mind more than Maya Someone she believed I could be is burning in me Now I want to be alone like a stronger man Then I can understand As I try to remember where I know you from Provider, are you inside or am I ?

Once In A Lifetime

Oleta Adams "Moving On"
Looking at you I can't believe After all this time You've come to me I've searched the whole world over I've searched far and wide Just to be in one place Right here by your side And so many nights, baby I've been wasting my time On love untrue Waiting for you I've been watching for someone, baby And I didn't know who Something inside of me told me it was you I knew I knew that once in a lifetime I'd find someone like you And for once in my life someone's found me too I knew that once in a lifetime I'd find love again Let our story of love begin... never end [Musical interlude] I wish I could tell you How you changed my heart like a thousand lights in the midst of the dark And so many nights, baby I've been wasting my time On love untrue Waiting for you I've been watching for someone, baby And I didn't know who Something inside of me told me it was you I knew [To chorus] I was praying so hard for you, yes I have Tryin' to get through to you, Oh Baby I was watching for somebody, Boy Something inside of me told me it had to be you I knew

Saint Divine

Gavin Friday The Man Seezer "Adam 'n' Eve"
I'll tell you now the story of a friend of mine A small town boy named 'Saint Divine' At his red flamed hair they would laugh and stare As he searched in vain for friends to find His mother, father and brother too... They told him ...we don't see the world like you... So he blew a kiss, he waved bye bye For love... it don't live here All the tears he holds inside... he gotta go away ...are the tears he must hide... Looking for love... So he goes to a big and bright city Where friends ecstatic are never cruel Forgets the clouds grabs the silver lining The lipstick boy can boogaloo and life is just one crazy ball 'cause down at King Tut Tuts he knows them all but the queen is still a queer and love... it don't live here. All the tears he holds inside... he gotta go away ...are the tears he must hide...Looking for. Looking for love... All the love he fails to find...he gotta go away ...will his dreams run out of time?...Looking for, Looking for love... Saint Saint Divine How you wear the woman What one calls a sinner another will a Saint Who is to say what is right from wrong It's Friday night! It's time to party The sacred cow can 'bang-a-gong' Sing you sinners, dance you Saints Anyway your body 'n' souls inclined. Laugh you lovers at those who hate in each an Adam and Eve entwined...
