Love Turns To Ice

Oh I,
I really wanted to believe in you
I wanted everything to be so true
So I, oh I
I turned a blind eye
Deep in my heart I knew it wasn't strong
Tried to believe that there was nothing wrong
Then I realized

That when trust turns to suspicion
Doors are locked, you pay the price
It's all a part of the human condition
When you look up at the lights
And love turns to ice

When you
Became a stranger I just shoved it away
I figured,"Hell, it's gonna be O.K."
But I, oh I
Could feel it deep inside
A tiny finger tappin' on my head
A sinkin' feeling turned my gut into lead
When I realized

That when trust....

It may be subtle but I know that it's there
I can hear my heart talkin'
I can hear myself talkin'
And my heart doesn't lie
No, my heart doesn't lie
No, my heart doesn't lie

Woh I, oh I
I really wanted to believe in you
I wanted everything to be so true
But I realized

That when trust.....

Wildman

Tongues talk, knives slice
Pointed fingers flinging advice
People got a cure
For everybodys problems but their own

Things change, songs end
Wind blows and willows will bend
Coats fall to the floor
It happens when you come into the comfort zone

Don't you know that he was sad when he was a wildman
Don't you know that too much time was spent too much alone
There isn't always happiness in the mad facade of a wildman
Who, in the end, was only looking for a home
When he was a wildman

Some leave, some last
Some cling to a piece of their past
But people gotta live
Even when compromise bends and bleeds

Some take, some trade
Lose sleep over making the grade
Coats fall to the floor
It happens when you find what you really need

Don't you know that he was sad...........

We think we're being healed
Sweat dripping in the trembling lights
But we stand revealed
When we return to the empty
                         to the empty night

Don't you know that he was sad............

Breaks My Heart

Rough rocky roads
Whispers getting so loud
People saying things they don't mean
Raisin' those dusty clouds

I wanna pin it down
Cos it's ripping you apart
And when you cry like that
It just breaks my heart

Misery
No good
No way you need the pain
No need
No good
No

Come on and let me hold you
Till your eyes have dried
Cos when you cry like that
It just breaks my heart

Tiny Island

See you stalkin' questing for the kill
Night is silent and the air is still
See you walkin' with your heart of stone
On a tiny island in a danger zone
Tiny island

You really stung me when you zeroed your sights
Kept me helplessly awake at nights
What really threw me when you took your swipe
Sure would be funny, eh, if you were right
What if you were right

Up on the hill it doesn't matter
You just unplug your telephone
Down on the ground the fighters drone
Tiny island in a danger zone
Tiny island

You really hit me with the kitchen sink
Sent me flyin' and you made me think
What really threw me when you took your slice
Sure would be funny, eh, if you were right
What if you were right

Up on the hill everyone wants you
Till your beggin' to be left alone
Down on the ground the fighters drone
Tiny island in a danger zone
Tiny island

And Now You Want My Love

Words of a heart that was broken
A careful heart that's on the mend
Of a heart that was open
Got flattened by an ambush
Heard you talkin' and my faith was blind
You made your exit while I walked the line

And now you want my love
You're looking for a word from me
Well, tell me, what's it gonna be
Some kind of unchained melody
And now you want my love, my love
You're reaching for my respect
Well don't you see there's nothing left
What do you expect
What do you expect

Words of a heart that is harder
A careful heart that's been betrayed
Just won't go, won't go any further
Still paying for the last time
Heard you talkin' and I had the faith
I found me standing in this empty place

And now you want my love.........

Oh, what a world
It's so broken down
Filled with shadows of grim deceit
Where they cover up your eyes
And they fill your head with lies
Then they offer up the prize
But it was all a big disguise

Keep a knockin' but you can't come in
No, I'm not opening that door again

And now you want my love...........

This Feeling

Woh, love
Is a word that's so misused
And when you take it out of context
It can get you so confused
But you can cancel that out
Because it has nothing to do
With this feeling that I carry for you

Woh love
Is a word that's so misleading
It can rip you like a bramble
Leave you in the bushes bleeding
But you can cancel that out
Because it has nothing to do
With this feeling that I carry for you

And it makes me wanna hold you
Way past midnight
Makes me wanna console you
When you're not feelin' right
I wanna be your cool cup of water
I wanna take care of your thirst
And when you're handing out kisses
I want you to come to me first

Woh love
Is a word so unforgiving
It can burn a hole in your soul
Take you away from the living
But you can cancel that out
Because it has nothing to do
With this feeling that I carry for you

Away From Me


I'm far away
Over the mountains
You're down by the sea
You're away from me

I can't believe it
I always thought I was oh so strong
So aloof and fancy free
Now I'm a captive
I swear I'm nothing but a slave
To the power that this love has over me

I'm far away...................

Nobody told me
Nobody said I would feel this way
When I gave my heart to love
I'm not prepared
For loneliness that is oh so strong
You're the only one that I'm ever thinkin' of

I'm far away.....................

For So Long

I've been waiting for so long
To see you win the prize
Now the sleepless nights are gone
And life is where it belongs
Back in your blue eyes

Ah the sunshine through the trees
Is landing right on your face
Some scars will never heal
But they can be put in their place
I've been waiting for so long


I'm so glad you got a break
Things are workin' out
Now you've got your head on straight
There'll be no more room
For indecision and doubt

Ah we thought our life was easy
But we had to look again
Now we're searching for a balance
Between the joy and the pain
I've been waiting for so long

Winterkill

There's a deep seated feeling
Things are getting not right
Trees are losing their leaves
Sky is losing light
Then the fog comes to settle
In the trees, in my head
Chilly frost forms white patterns
'Round my heart, in my chest
And if I'm not right side up
When the snow hits the hills
Winterkill

Neighbours swing their axes
They got the wood piling high
School doors are open
Young children scream and they play and they cry
Steam coats the windows
As the red kettle boils
I see the face of a stranger
Staring back from the foil
And if I'm not right side up
When the snow hits the hills
Winterkill

Lives fall in line like words from a stage
The lines in between they leap from the page
Radio drones and drones and time seems to stand so still....so still

Sun goes down early
Day fades to night
Beer goes down easy
I sleep good alright
There's a crack in the window
All the heat's seepin' out
Rising up like a big jet airplane
That's heading south
And if I'm not right side up
When the snow hits the hills
Winterkill

Sweet Shameless Hours

Sweet, sweet shameless hours Sweet, sweet shameless hours Give ourselves right over To love's tender power It's gonna be, gonna be something You and me and these sweet shameless hours Let the rain fall down Make the pavement slick and wet Let the blacktop shine Let the main street lights reflect All of the neon, it can flash off and on We don't need to know Ooh, we're pullin' down the blinds We're gonna entwine We're gonna hold each other oh so close in these Sweet shameless hours........... Telephone might ring Let the damn thing ring off the wall Somebody might knock on the door But we won't hear a thing at all We're gonna take some time Cos time is something we haven't had much of Ooh, we're gonna realign and we're gonna define All of the reasons why we're so in love in these Sweet shameless hours............ I ride and I ride The measure of the miles is a little too much But I keep holding on Till I'm back in the territory of your touch The territory of your touch
