Mourning Morning

Original and similar lyrics
Morning light don't scratch my eyes Just let me wash up on the shore I used to have the strangest dreams But they don't come here anymore My duvet's laid out like an atlas with stains to mark the borderlines Indentations in my pillow I hope won't fade with time Smoke the roach left in the ashtray on which I choked the night before Stub my toes on dirty clothes, like mountain ranges on the floor. I pick my way through crusty dishes and their greasy chemistry I washed two cups and then remember that you've left already. I let you go so reluctantly and I can still hear your lazy symphony And just when I think I found my calling, it's another mourning morning They say the devil's in the detail I'm gonna blind my eyes instead I put my memories in a landscape where only reckless angels tread I watch the fingerprints you left like a secret code upon my skin And I remember when you told me a gilded crown won't make a king I really want you to stay, but I know you have to go I really want you to stay, but sometimes it doesn't show I really want you to stay, but I know you have to go I really want you to stay, let the conversation flow I really want you to stay, but I know you have to go I really want you to stay, but sometimes it doesn't show I really want you to stay, but I know you have to go, have to go again I let you go so reluctantly and I can still hear your lazy symphony And just when I think I found my calling, it's another mourning morning I really want you to stay but I know you have to go [x7] Have to go again

Swiss Cottage Manoeuvres

AL STEWART "Bed-Sitter Images"
On a Christmas cake day one Friday in August In a bookshop in Charing Cross Road I first set eyes on a girl and at once I did know She had eyes like a poet and hair like a rainbow Reflecting the lights that did glow And the sadness she kept in her eyes Struck my senses a blow And so as by chance at the touch of a glance We could find ourselves out in the road With no crush of time to defeat us and no place to go And I couldn't say how but the coffee bar crowd Had appeared through the silence that broke And she said "Oh my father's a judge in St Albans you know." "Oh well, then perhaps I could help you You know that St. Albans is miles away And I've got a room in Swiss Cottage in which you could stay "She laughed "Oh I couldn't do that, For I've got to be up in the morning you see. "So I rang up to find out the first morning train she could take And so in the gloom of a candlelit room With spaghetti, two forks and a plate She said "Oh I really would like to be free and escape." "Oh well if it's like thatYou don't have to go back And you're perfectly welcome to stay" "But I've not finished school yet." she said as she got into bed And so as she slept and the pure morning crept Through the windows to take her away I thought you can't make people be what you want them to be I could see my self nailed to a dormitory tale Of a holiday night's escapade And just yesterday she had seemed like a woman to me And so like a child with the sleep in her eyes Where the sadness of age had once been She left on the train with a "See you again" and a smile And I couldn't say what I had won or I lost Or even just what I had seen But when I'm alone I just think of her once in awhile.

The Last To Say

ATMOSPHERE "The Family Sign"
As far back as he cares to remember, He used to see his old man lose the temper. And Mama's pretty face'd catch it all. On a regular basis the nest would fall. But he was always safe from dad's rage 'Cause mama's sacrifice in his place. Two dozen years, Of the blood sweet and tears. Avoid the mirror, losin' her hair from the fear. She never left him, stayed inside. He beat her up until the day that he died. In fact the biggest beating was the day that he died. Cause now it's too late for her to make a new life. She gets to mourn for the touch of a punch. Won't ever admit that she ain't clutching it much. Someday she'll die and still won't be done. The anger lives on through their son. Cause he saw, he caught it all, A childhood of watchin' ma and pa get raw. It's too bad for him; Naw' that's half the truth. Cause you back with him now and he's smackin' you. What happened to you? You don't have a clue. Did your mamma use to suffer accidents too? I never knew that you would stand for abuse. I guess I just assumed that you would pack up and move. Think about when you left him, Last time, You said out loud, You'd never forgive past crime. Sunglasses so dark, scarf around the neck to cover the choke marks. And since you got it justify returnin', You convinced yourself that he's just a hurt person. You wanna blame that cross he bares, But his pop's not there when he tosses you down stairs. Let me be the last to say, please don't stay. Let me be the last to say, you won't be okay. Please put your shoes on and step into that warm weather. Go get yourself a more better forever. Gotta put it down, you gotta leave it, And don't ever come back again; You gotta mean it. Just tear it all apart and build new, Cause' if you don't kill him he's gonna kill you. You can't hold hands when they make fists, And I ain't the first to say this but, Let me be the last to say, please don't stay. Let me be the last to say, you won't be okay. Let me be the last to say, please don't stay.

Move On

ZEBRAHEAD "Waste Of Mind"
On track Never look back When bad times seem to distract You got to make your way, don't you know that Don't wait till it's too late Got to let the bad times fail to illuminate, right? Cause I can always tell when your falling I can hear you calling I can see it in your eyes when you're stalling But after all you know that I'll be around To pick you up when you're down You never gave yourself a rhyme or reason I know some days are too hard to bear And if you need a hand, I'm standing there You're the one that gives me inspiration Change the way I see every day I want to make you feel the same Don't say that there's no way Every bruise heals someday You got knocked down and that's okay Come on, it's on Get a move on It's about what you got to do, not the things that you've done Cause I can always tell when you're falling I can hear you calling I can see it in your eyes when you're stalling But after all you know that I'll be around To pick you up when you're down Just another lie, just another reason why You don't trust it, confidence is busted Your running but you're rolling on fumes And if you need a hand, understand that we can get through Cause I can always tell when you're falling I can hear you calling I can see it in your eyes when your stalling But after all you know that I'll be around To pick you up when you're down Cause I always knew that you'd move on And I always knew that you'll be strong ...can you feel it?

Guy Who Doesn't Get It

Jill Sobule
Can't you tell that I am dying inside? Can't you hear my muffled cry? Do you have to be told a thousand times? You're the guy who doesn't get it Don't you know my life's a quiet hell? I'm a black hole, I'm an empty shell Does it occur to you /that/ I might need help? You're the guy who doesn't get it Say I'm in the tub with a razor blade You'd walk in and ask me How was your day? Then you'd lather up and start to shave As I bleed on the new tile floor I'm sure that you really care for me And your heart's as big as Germany But you're as blind as they were back in '33 You're the guy who doesn't get it Say the car exhaust /is in/ my brain The Nebutol is racing through my veins You'd come in and ask Are you okay? As I close my eyes forever Can't you tell that I am dying inside? Can't you hear my muffled cry? What's going on /inside those/ vacant eyes? You're the guy who doesn't get it /You're the guy who doesn't get it/

The Narrow Way Part 3

PINK FLOYD "Ummagumma"
The Narrow Way Part 3 Following the path as it leads towards the Darkness in the North Weary strangers' faces show their sympathy They've seen that hope before And if you want to stay for a little bit Rest your aching limbs for a little bit Before you the night is beckoning And you know you can't delay You hear the night birds calling you But you can't touch the words they sing Close your aching eyes beyond your name Mist is swelling, creatures crawling, Hear the roar get louder in your ears You know the folly was your own But the force behind can't conquer all your fears And if you want to stay for a little bit Rest your aching limbs for a little bit Before you the night is beckoning And you know you can't delay You hear the night birds calling you But you can't touch the restless sky Close your aging eyes beyond your name Throw your thoughts back many years To the time when there was life in every morning Perhaps a day will come When the nights will be as clear as on that morning And if you want to stay for a little bit Rest your aching limbs for a little bit Before you the night is beckoning And you know you can't delay You hear the night birds calling you But you can't touch the words they sing Close your aging eyes beyond your name
