TAKE ON ME
Talking away*
I don't know what I'm to say*
I'll say it anyway*
today's another day to find you*
Shying away*
I'll be coming for you love O.K.*


Take on me*
Take me on*
I'll be gone*
in a day or two*


So needless to say I'm odds and ends*
But that's me, stumbling away*
Slowly learning that life is O.K.*
Say after me*
It's no better to be safe than sorry.*


Take on me*
Take me on*
I'll be gone*
in a day or two.*


The things that you say*
Is it live or just to play*
My worries away*
You're all the things I've got to remember*
You shying away*
I'll be coming for you anyway*


Take on me*
Take me on*
I'll be gone*
in a day or two

All I want
is someone to hold
someone to talk to
and with, to grow old

We share in our cabin
an old, plush lounge
and as we talk
I see the fireplace embers and low flames
reflect in your eye.

Under the fur skin rug
that we both share
our socked feet
nestle against each other
slowly wriggling in subconscious comfort

I go outside
into the cold night air
I pull worn leather boots on
checking our animals are safe and sheltered
a slow, gentle rain starts

Back under the veranda
I carry inside more cut logs
as I look to see my love
settling back down with 2 glasses
for this eve we are not yet done

The fire stoked again
chill wind blowing outside
renewed flames share the heat with us
the tide of encroaching cold
once again kept at bay
by the slow ebb of warmth we keep

A glass of wine to warm our insides
we flip the pages to our chosen fables
and we converse at leisure
by candle and firelight

Our bodies are warm from ember heat
our bellies warm from wine
but our hearts are warm from the love we share
minds content with the kept company
hearts happy
Our place in the world
Home.

THE ROSE

Some say love, it is a river, that drowns the tender reed
Some say love, it is a razor, that leaves your soul to bleed
Some say love, it is a hunger, an endless aching need
I say love, it is a flower, and you, its only seed


Its the heart afraid of breaking, that never learns to dance
Its the dream afraid of waking, that never takes the chance
Its the one who won't be taking, who cannot seem to give
And the soul afraid of dying, that never learns to live


When the night has been too lonely and the road has been too long
And you think that love is only for the lucky and the strong
Just remember in the winter, far beneath the bitter snows
Lies the seed, that with the sun's love in the spring becomes the rose

I knew him as a gentle young man
I cannot say for sure the reasons for his decline
We watched him fade before our very eyes
And years before his time

Surrounded himsef with shiny things
First night tickets, ermine, pearls upon a string
And disappeared in all the pestilence
That sudden pleasure brings

He never asks after her anymore
He made a point of losing her address
And every trinket that she ever touched
He keeps locked away
And just burns up in the furnace of his chest

Well I spoke to a man who says he's done it all
And the only thing that pleases or excites him now
Is hurting, hurting then hurting some more
There's someone I want to forget tonight
Don't you want to forget someone too?
I left him, and I can leave you too

Baby let's go out tonight
It will all turn out all right I'm sure
Don't want to drink at home again tonight
So let's go out
Let's go out tonight
It's getting dark earlier now
But where you are it's just getting light
Where you are it will just be getting light

Tender is the night The triffids

Every time we do this
I fall for her
Wave after wave after wave
It's all for her
I know this can't be wrong I say
(and I'll lie to keep her happy)
As long as I know that you know
That today I belong
Right here with you
Right here with you...
And so we watch the sun come up
From the edge of the deep green sea
And she listens like her head's on fire
Like she wants to believe in me
So I try
Put your hands in the sky
Surrender
Remember
We'll be here forever
And we'll never say goodbye
I've never been so
Colorfully-see-through-head before
I've never been so
Wonderfully-me-you-want-some-more
And all I want is to keep it like this
You and me alone
A secret kiss
And don't go home
Don't go away
Don't let this end
Please stay
Not just for today
Never never never never never let me go she says
Hold me like this for a hundred thousand million days
But suddenly she slows
And looks down at my breaking face
Why do you cry? what did I say?
But it's just rain I smile
Brushing my tears away
I wish I could just stop
I know another moment will break my heart
Too many tears
Too many times
Too many years I've cried over you
How much more can we use it up?
Drink it dry?
Take this drug?
Looking for something forever gone
But something
We will always want?
Why why why are you letting me go? she says
I feel you pulling back
I feel you changing shape
And just as I'm breaking free
She hangs herself in front of me
Slips her dress like a flag to the floor
And hands in the sky
Surrenders it all
I wish I could just stop
I know another moment will break my heart
Too many tears
Too many times
Too many years I've cried for you
It's always the same
Wake up in the rain
Head in pain
Hung in shame
A different name
Same old game
Love in vain
And miles and miles and miles and miles and miles
Away from home again

Got this one stuck in my head today
Dyin' Ain't So Bad
Album Bonnie and Clyde (Original Broadway Cast Recording)


[BONNIE]
Dyin' ain't so bad
Not if you both go together
Only when one's left behind does it get sad
But a short and lovin' life
That ain't so bad

I only hope to God that I go first
I couldn't live on memories
I'm sorry, but I'm not that strong

There are some things in life you can't replace
A love like ours don't happen twice
When all his days are through
Mine will be too

'Cause dyin' ain't so bad
Not if you both go together
Only when one's left behind does it get sad
But a short and lovin' life
That ain't so bad

I've met boys who talk 'bout farms and horses
And they don't do much for me
I don't need to end up in a rockin' chair

Seems you get to live your life just once
If that's how it's gotta be
Then I'd rather breathe in life than dusty air

Dyin' ain't so bad
Not if you both go together
Only when you're left alone does it get sad
But a short and lovin' life

A short and lovin' life

A short and lovin' life
That ain't so bad

I'd like to be David McComb without the tragedy
A poet without the insanity
Take a right turn into the light
Silence the circling angry voices
screaming at me
deep into the long dark night
stop nightmares of lifeless flotsam
tossed up on the beach
a lifeline to better days still within reach.

Too Much Love Will Kill You
Queen

I'm just the pieces of the man I used to be
Too many bitter tears are raining down on me
I'm far away from home
And I've been facing this alone
For much too long
Oh, I feel like no-one ever told the truth to me
About growing up and what a struggle it would be
In my tangled state of mind
I've been looking back to find
Where I went wrong
Too much love will kill you
If you can't make up your mind
Torn between the lover
And the love you leave behind
You're headed for disaster
'Cause you never read the signs
Too much love will kill you - every time
I'm just the shadow of the man I used to be
And it seems like there's no way out of this for me
I used to bring you sunshine
Now all I ever do is bring you down
Oh, how would it be if you were standing in my shoes
Can't you see that it's impossible to choose
No there's no making sense of it
Every way I go I'm bound to lose
Oh yes
Too much love will kill you
Just as sure as none at all
It'll drain the power that's in you
Make you plead and scream and crawl
And the pain will make you crazy
You're the victim of your crime
Too much love will kill you every time
Yes, too much love will kill you
It'll make your life a lie
Yes, too much love will kill you
And you won't understand why
You'd give your life, you'd sell your soul
But here it comes again
Too much love will kill you
In the end
In the end

Never realized the passing hours of evening showers
Slip noose hanging in my darkest dreams
I'm strangled by your haunted social scene
Just a pawn outplayed by a dominating queen
It's four o'clock in the morning
Damn it listen to me good
I'm sleeping with myself tonight
Saved in time
Thank God my music is still alive
