Kindred

Soft green grass underfoot

Lets stop and take a look

at a giant frog who smiles

content to stay awhile

I donít see my Kindred everyday

 though in my heart they stay

 

Two restless tail thumping pups

are cheeky thrives who cause kuffups

my little sister writes her name

 in the grass with the mower blade

I donít see my Kindred everyday

though in my heart they stay

 

How I do enjoy simple family joy

 how Iíd like to be swimming under the sea

even though you donít say a word

 you make a paper bird and fly it

high in the trees swaying with the breeze

the time we spend together weíll treasure and remember

cause life is spent and measured by good memories

 

The sun is bright today even in the shade

I would like to be sippin' lemonade

or better still champagne

I donít see my Kindred everyday

though in my heart they stay

 

The simple pleasures are what I love to remember

with the touch of your sweet hand

I know Yeah I understand

 

Baby's Comin' Home

Iím a runniní to get on the early train

cause my Babyís cominí home

heís been gone a way to long

it makes me crazy cause the feelinís so strong

 

This train couldnít go any slower

cause my Babyís cominí home tonight

 

I dropped the keys but I finally get in through the door

I look around at the crap all on the floor

how could I leave the house in such a state

when I knew that today is the day

 

God I havenít even had a shower or curled my hair

and heíll be here in half an hour or shaved down there

ĎOh Godí just get into the shower

cause my Babyís coming home tonight

 

Iíve just got time to slip into something red and slinky

and spray some sweet vanilla lily all over my body

 

but then our eyes meet as heís coming through the door

and his strong arms sweep me right off the floor

somehow I donít think that weíll be having dinner anymore

 

cause my Baby is home tonight heís already here tonight

and he gave me such a fright now weíre getting down tonight

 

Watch Out

If you see him across a crowded room

you should not smile you should not swoon

for if he sees you... oh no

 

If you let him he will slide right in

break down your walls get under your skin

if you let him... oh no

 

Watch out you donít know what heís all about

look out heíll only leave you crying out

watch out you donít know what heís all about

he will only break your heart and leave you torn apart

 

If he takes you to be his bride

youíll only live a moment by his side

for if he takes you... oh no

 

he will pull you close he will touch your face

you will lose your breathe in his strong embrace

as he breathes in your neck feel your heart beat fast

Itís the true love you have waited for at last

as he breaks the skin as he sucks you in

you are already forsaken to his passionate sin

leads you in dare till your good and bloody dead

lets you drown in the river pretty flowers Ďround your head

 

Talk All You Want

Donít you come around here

donít you tell me what to do

cause Iím damn tired of listening to ya-

you donít have a clue

 

All those sneaky sarcasms

canít hurt me anymore

cause I donít care what youíve got to say-

donít try and even up your score

 

Talk all you want I canít hear you

Talk all you want Iím not listening to ya

Talk all you want you canít hurt me no more

 

Do your best to knock me off balance

by making yourself look so smart

By now everybody knows your game

you canít upset the apple cart

 

Even your own great mother

looks at you with such distaste

How did such a sweet boy

go to such a god dam waste

 

I know that your just jealous darling

of everything Iíve got

You canít try to show me up

cause its something that you just ainít got

 

Alec & Edna

Only Alec saw how the sun lit up her hair

and brought out the blue in her eyes

 

But Alec didnít dare let his eyes linger long

on the goddess that he knew he could never have

 

If only he would look my way someday

then I could catch his eye and smile

Alec- donít you know how good it could be

Iíd carve your name and mine on a tree

 

Just to be close and sit by her side

whisper softly in her ear of her beauty by the firelight

 

and he could take her hand and lead her down to swim

theyíd laugh together and then jump and splash right in

 

If only he would look my way someday

then I could catch his eye and smile

Alec- donít you know how good it could be

Iíd carve your name and mine on a tree

 

I donít even exist you pass me everyday

I hold you with my eyes but then you slip away

 

If only you would look my way someday

then I could catch your eye

 

Beautiful Man

Prey keep still I have to tell you-

I donít know if youíll understand

But I want to tell you Beautiful Man

 

The breeze is blowing the sun is glowing

So my darling come and take my hand

 

Cause I want to show you Beautiful Man

That your so important to my hearts own plan

 

Can you just stop for a minute and chase around no more

Cause you see I must tell you that I love your every flaw

All your faults and fables and beauty I adore

And I must have you to be mine forever mi amore

 

The moon is glowing the stars are showing

So my darling come and take my hand

 

Look here my love I am here beside you

And I will always understand

Through it all Iíll be your Forever Man

 

Cause your so important to my hearts own plan

Beautiful Man

 

Paradise

Iím gonna sit in the pub and look over the waves

Chilliní with friends watching parasails

You are the only one for me I know

cause Iíve tried to leave but I just canít go

 

Donít you love her so Yes I do

Why did you want to go I donít know

Her beauty is so rare Beyond compare

 

Donít think twice your so nice

and your my idea of Paradise

I live right here in paradise

theres no pain or fear in paradise

and its oh so clear you are mine

your sublime and your my idea of paradise

 

Throw the barra on that you caught last week

and recall those times we snorkelled out on the reef

next time I have travelled far from my home

Iíll just think of you and Iíll never be alone

 

The Credit or the Blame

The time has come

you must bring yourself to look at what youíve become

 

lift your feet one by one

stand up and face what you fear the most

 

Lift the veil to see what you take such pains to hide

your true face is not the one you display for the world

 

Stand up and take a bow

are you proud of what you are

you may pretend but you canít turn into anyone else

No NO

 

Donít look and see that the grass is greener on the other side

for how far must you travel to leave yourself behind

 

Shut yourself in and pour over lines

absorb every detail of your wretched past and know

there's nowhere left to hide

 

You have done this to yourself you canít blame anyone else

 

Maybe one day you will take the Credit not the Blame

 

River to the Sea

 

From the river to the sea Lift your face to feel

Bask in the warm sun Let it fill you and know

That I will always come for you

 

Emerse yourself in me let your hair flow free

all around your face your bodyís weightless

and your mind is still and still

 

I hold you close to me we drift away so free

we are at home with everything and we are one

cause you will always be home to me

 

Hey La Let our waters become one

Hey La Drink me in let our waters become one

Hey La Iím at home

 

From the river to the sea Lift your face to feel

Bask in the warm sun Let it fill you and know

That I will always be here with you

 

Free Tonight

Under the starlight we dance this dance of life

Under the moonlight a canopy of stars shine down so bright

 

Twirl your body tightly close your eyes

your soul is free tonight

 

Exhale all your cares and be one with it all tonight

 

Under the starlight throw your hands up in delight

Under the moonlight shake your shimmy with all of your might

 

Twirl your body tightly close your eyes

your soul is free tonight

Tonight Your Free

 

I Can't Fall

Donít you use that smile on me              

Iím not the person that I seem

Donít even try and look into my eyes              

Reality is always different than what you dream

I canít even be in the room if your there

I know you want me to return your stare

 

I Canít Fall in Love With You

But it feels like it would be so true

 

Iím going to try and ignore these feelings

though the Spirit inside has made a choice

All these long late hours we spend together

all alone just sit listening to your voice

I know youíll fulfil my every desire

its just getting there- this struggle burns like fire

 

I Canít Fall in Love with You

But it feels so true

No I Canít Fall for You

No but its too late

 

There Is Only Love

Whats your hurry take a minute stop to smell the flowers

Whats your hurry find your imagination in the clouds

Whats your hurry just one minute see the colour of the leaves

 

Feel you heart in your chest beating what does it beat for                            

Feel the strength in your hands what are you working towards

See the colours in your vision what are you looking for

 

Its Love... There is only Love

 

Whats you hurry take a minute help a friend in need

Take the time Find the soul behind your lovers eyes

Take the time Decide what really makes you happy

 

I feel like Iíve been showered with riches

I have all I want, all I need and so much more more more so much money

I have the love of my friends and family

with such good food, good wine, good company, good music

that is all I need              

And I am so grateful for everyday

Iíll share a smile with you weíll brighten up this day

 

Love love love there is only love

 

Give In To Me

Give in to me give in to me give in to me

 

Iíll make you sing make your body swing

then Iíll take it slow and make you go

 

Donít care what comes after or what came before

Cause its now I live in donít need nothin' more

thats why your dancing and shoutin' out loud

close your eyes and get lost be one with this crowd

 

Iíll take you hard Iíll ride you fast

then Iíll take it slow and make you go

 

Give in to me give in to me give in to me
