    THERE’S ALWAYS A FIRST TIME

    never been one for devil-may-care
    painting the town or letting down hair
    oh so wary of building on dreams
    afraid to discover all’s not what it seems

    there’s always a first time
    how do I know for sure
    now is not mine
    tell me how I know
    it’s safe to just let go…show me
    some sign

    there’s always a first time
    how do I know that you
    are the right one
    show me how to lose
    those nagging doubts and choose
    not run

    let me then awake to find
    I’ve left all caution far behind
    in the past
    let my heart be fit to burst
    with a longing unrehearsed
    let it last

    there’s always a first time
    let it be now and you
    be that someone
    who can help me leave in the hands of fate
    what we’ve begun

    BE STILL MY HEART

    my heart is not lonely or broken
    is not of ice or of gold
    nor has my heart ever spoken
    to me when a love has grown cold

    I felt not the faintest flutter
    when you brushed my cheek as you passed
    nor will I willingly clutter
    my life with these things that don’t last

    be still my heart
    my heart be still

    if our eyes should meet then so-be-it
    no need to trouble a heart that’s hidden
    where no-one can free it
    only to tear it apart

    be still my heart
    my heart be still

    beware, beware, beware
    take care, take care

    be still my heart
    my heart be still

    SO SORRY FOR YOUR LOVE

    it’s as plain as the nose on your face
    nobody can deny
    that Sorrow must find its rightful place
    but why am I so sorry for your love

    I could write you a book on Regret
    none of it would apply
    the answers would all be there …and yet
    not why I am so sorry for your love

    I need hardly mention
    the very best intentions
    pave the road to you-know-where
    downhill from the start
    it will grieve the caring heart
    to know that it has sown despair

    I would give my whole world to return
    be at the start knowing why
    it had to end this way…and maybe learn day by day
    just why I am so sorry for your love

    I need hardly mention
    the very best intentions
    pave the road to you-know-where
    downhill from the start
    it will grieve the caring heart
    to know that it has sown despair

    I would give my whole world to return
    be at the start knowing why
    it had to end this way…and maybe learn day by day
    just why I am so sorry for your love

    NOW AND THEN

    now and then behind the rows
    of pearly teeth and fashion clothes
    she sees them in the mirror-tiles
    trying on their latest smiles
    light and warmth from spotlight beams
    convincing them their nightmare is a dream

    now and then when they’re at rest
    flocked in sleep in cuckoo’s nests
    feeling safe no need to hide
    she opens doors and windows wide
    and poised upon her painted claws
    she stretches out her gaudy wings and soars

    no one to say ..too low….too high
    or count the lonely miles she has flown
    far away borne by the wind
    she roams the sky
    this world is hers alone

    but then again behind the rows
    she feels the piercing looks of those
    who watch her every move in case
    she happens to forget her place
    who sum her up….deny her flight
    aim their words and shoot her down on sight

    no one to say ..too low….too high
    or count the lonely miles she has flown
    far awayborne by the wind
    she roams the sky
    this world is hers alone

    KEEP ON BACKING LOSERS

    I keep on backing losers
    the beggars not the choosers
    ahahahahah….
    I keep on backing losers
    the beggars not the choosers
    ahahahahah….

    how come they always find me
    turn my head and blind me
    with tales of how they need to start anew
    they feed but never feed me
    I just cater for the needy
    tending broken hearts is what I do

    I keep on backing losers
    the beggars not the choosers
    ahahahahah….
    but I’m no longer buying
    the sobbing and the sighing
    ahahahahah…

    I’m through with playing Sister-
    of –Mercy to the misters
    who tell me that they’re so misunderstood
    and that being with me’s giving
    them the strength to go on living
    and that I alone can make them feel so good

    I keep on backing losers
    the beggars not the choosers
    ahahahahah….
    but I’m no longer buying
    the sobbing and the sighing
    ahahahahah

    years……of stroking heads and drying tears
    of being there to calm their fears
    I’ve had enough I’m steering clear….clear….clear…clear

    I keep on backing losers
    the beggars not the choosers
    ahahahahah….
    but I’m no longer buying
    the sobbing and the sighing
    ahahahahah

    AT FIRST LIGHT

    long before I’d opened up my eyes
    I felt a heavy day was coming on
    there outside my window leaden skies
    filled the space where once the sun had shone

    the wind is howling though it’s just a breeze
    bending me and all that’s in it’s way
    breaks my will and brings me to my knees
    tells me I can’t take another day

    you’re out of sight not out of mind
    survived the night only to find
    you’re out of sight not out of mind
    you helped me see then robbed me blind

    the summer’s day now brings me Winter’s frost
    the seasons are all one and time stands still
    I search for something that has not been lost
    to help me climb this never-ending hill

    I wander through a landscape cold and bare
    where all that I once knew has turned to stone
    there is no living thing to hold me there
    no voice to tell me I am not alone

    you’re out of sight not out of mind
    survived the night only to find
    you’re out of sight not out of mind
    you helped me see then robbed me blind

    THERE’S TROUBLE BREWING

    there’s trouble brewing
    leave what you’re doing
    step out of line
    no point in keeping watch
    if you’re sleeping
    half of the time
    check out the crummy lines you’ve been saying
    you’re not in some second-rate soap

    there’s trouble brewing
    leave what you’re doing
    it might just pay
    there’s no denying
    always complying
    isn’t the way
    ditch all the empty games you’ve been playing

    ain’t Life a ball
    you came for the ride
    and end up just learning to crawl

    slipping and sliding’s
    better than hiding
    heads deep in sand
    cut out the sighing
    see what you’re buying
    it’s in your hands
    think of the bitter price you keep paying
    then weigh up the value and cost

    there’s trouble brewing
    leave what you’re doing
    step out of line
    no point in keeping watch
    if you’re sleeping
    half of the time
    check out the crummy lines you’ve been saying
    you’re not in some second-rate soap ……….. ain’t Life a ball ….etc

    JAPANESE BLUE

    can’t count the hours
    blame the miles
    and say they keep me
    from your smile
    for you are here
    no oceans lie
    between my lover’s arms and I

    I see your smile
    but where are you
    why don’t you dare
    to need me too
    I’d bring you joy
    to light the way
    a ray of sun
    to thaw your days

    please let me through
    I don’t ask much
    but the slightest touch
    of Japanese Blue
    I beg of you
    my life is such
    it needs a touch of Japanese Blue

    I see that life
    has taken toll
    your shattered dreams
    I can’t make whole
    but let me through
    and I will stay
    close by your side
    to comfort you

    please let me through
    I don’t ask much
    but the slightest touch…etc

    LULLABY TO ERLE

    mothers have woven a black velvet ocean
    and spread it between the night and day shores
    so that children might sleep…gently rocked by the motion
    of waves beneath boats built by fathers like yours

    with you safe aboard…by the shore we will linger
    and watch as your breathing it fills up the sail
    you loosen the moorings..your grip on our finger
    and leave on the velvet a silvery trail

    alone on the shore with our hearts close to breaking
    we stand in the wake as you glide from our reach
    calmed by the thought that the voyage you’re taking
    will bring you at dawning back safe to this beach

    we cannot sail with you….be there to guide you
    or pilot your boat through the black of the night
    but no ocean can keep you…no darkness can hide you
    away from our love and its undying light
