In my dreams I fly

Tomorrow I know you’ll go away
And again I shall cry
I know I won’t hear you say
‘I’ll love you till I die’
So once again I try to sleep
Sometimes I’d like to die
Yours was the love I couldn’t keep
But in my dreams we fly.

What do I look like to you?
I know that I’m not much
But oh what can I do
When I thrill to your touch
So one again into my dreams
A land where I can’t cry
And lost loves are silent screams
And in my dreams I fly.

Day by day I carry on
Thru’ the rhythm of your scorn
People say that life is long
But I wish I’d not been born
Once again my dreams unfold
And take me to the sky
In this story never told
I dream that we can fly.

Winter daydreams

My winter daydreams
Like sun in the sand
Lakewater frozen
As frost in the hand
Soon comes the dark sky
And here comes the cold
And here comes the day
When our love ran cold.

Memories of spring
Lying in the grass
Never thought that love
Could be in the past
Soon comes the dark days
Soon comes the cold
Soon comes the day
When our love was old.

The old sun shone done
In the summer morns
And I wake with you
Every single dawn
Soon came the dark days
Soon came the cold
Soon came the day
When our love ran cold.

And now Autumns gone
And you are set to leave
My winter daydreams
Wither on the breeze
Now the days are dark
Now there is no light
No warm to hold me
No single thing that’s right.

We can meet

We can meet somewhere tomorrow
But tomorrow never comes
Meet under a fleeting moon
Or under summer sun
We can meet again tomorrow
But both of us know
We’ll not meet tomorrow
‘Cos I’ve gotta go.

We can meet again someday
Only call my name
You won’t call tomorrow
Tomorrow’s filled with pain
We can meet again tomorrow
I know where you’ll be
Meet again tomorrow
When you’ll be missing me.

We might meet again one day
Meet one day as friends
We should meet again one day
‘Cos how can love just end
We might meet again one day
I’ll see you in a crowd
But I won’t say nothing
I’ll not cry out loud.

Believe just believe

Believe just believe
You get what you need
Believe just believe
In your dreams.

Believe just believe
You get what you need
Believe just believe
In your heart.

Believe just believe
You get what you need
Believe just believe
In your love.

Believe just believe
It’s no time to grieve
Believe just believe
In my love.

Believe just believe
I’ll give you what you need
Believe just believe
In our love.

Call it a day

Call it a day
You know love had to die
Call it a day
Please don’t ever ask me why
Call it a day
I can’t take no more fear
Call it a day
I can’t cry no more tears
Call it a day
Call it a day.

Call it a day
I threw it all away
Call it a day
I know you want to stay
Call it a day
I feel I don’t belong
Call it a day
I never was too strong
Call it a day
Call it a day.

Call it a day
My heart will break in two
Call it a day
I’ll spend my life without you
Call it a day
I wasn’t worth your trust
Call it a day
You love me too much
Call it a day
Call it a day.

Call it a day
As the sun dies in the west
Call it a day
I know you loved me best
Call it a day
As the moon climbs in the sky
Call it a day
This is my last goodbye
Call it a day
Call it a day.

I love you

I love you like a hurricane
I love you like a song
I’ll love you even more my love
When I know you’ve gone.

I love you like a sledge hammer
I love you thru the night
I’ll love you even more my love
When you were out of sight.

I love you like a sunny day
I love you like my life
I’ll love you even more my love
When you’re not my wife.

I love you like birds that sing
I love you everyday
I’ll love you even more my love
When you have gone away.
When you have gone away.

The wheel of life

The wheel of life
Goes round and round
Round and round
Round and round
The wheel of life
Goes round and round
And I don’t know where to go.

The wheel of love
Goes round and round
Round and round
Round and round
The wheel of love
Goes round and round
But I don’t know who to love.

The wheel of pain
Goes round and round
Round and round
Round and round
The wheel of pain
Goes round and round
And I don’t know when to cry

The wheel of fate
Goes round and round
Round and round
Round and round
The wheel of fate
Goes round and round
We don’t know when it stops.

The wheel of life
Goes round and round
Round and round
Round and round
The wheel of life
Goes round and round
And I don’t know where to go.

I’ve often thought

I’ve often thought
I’d say to you
The things I kept inside
But you never came
And I began to hide
So many times I cried your name
To my pillow in the dark
But you wouldn’t see me
And I would never fight
And now I read about you
In the columns that you write
And I can never see you
Never hold you tight
And you have gone and risen up
A new star in the sky
And all I do is call your name
I might as well just die
But I had you once and loved you then
And you said you loved me
And so I hang by silken threads
And don’t want to be free.

You’ve seen the glory

You’ve seen the glory
You know the story
You know that I’m depending on you
You’ve got the youth
You know the truth
You know I’m lost, without you.

I’ve had the glory
I’ve told the story
Now I guess I, just need you
You’re like no other
No other lover
You make me feel so brand new.

We have the glory
This is our story
You know every word of it is true
I know you love me
You know what I see
You know the world begins with us two.

How many times

Have I heard your old lies
How may times have you tried
How many times
Have you lied to me
How many time have you lied
How many times

But now things are different
Your life’s about to turn
I remember how you lied to me
I’ll laugh whilst you burn.

How many days
Have been thrown away
How many days have gone by
How many days
When I used to pray
That soon you would die.

But now things are different
Your life’s about to turn
I remember how you lied to me
I’ll laugh whilst you burn.

How often
Have I been deceived
By your clever schemes
How often
Have I found refuge
In my simple dreams.

But now things are different
Your life’s about to turn
I remember how you lied to me
I’ll laugh whilst you burn.

Have I heard your old lies
How may times have you tried
How many times
Have you lied to me
How many time have you lied
How many times

Turn back the clock

Turn back the clock
Stop all the time
Just take me back
To when you were mine
Turn back the clock
To yesterday
When you were here
Not gone away.

Turn back the clock
Push back the hands
To yesterday
When we had plans
Turn back the clock
Turn back my dreams
So I can’t hear
My silent screams.

Turn back my life
And set me free
For only death
Can set me free
Turn back the hope
That died in my heart
Turn back the time
Make a new start.

Hold back the door
Let it stay night
I know I have lost
My sunlight
Hold back the tears
That start to fall
Hold back my life
I’ve lost it all.

Someone came

Someone came and took my love
Took my love away
Someone stole my only love
The world stopped yesterday.

I never knew I loved her
Until she wasn’t here
I never knew I needed her
To keep away the fear.

Was it you who took my love
Took my love away
Did you just steel my love
Break my heart today.

Now I walk a lonely road
Without a love to hold
Now I walk in the shade
And life has grown cold.

Silver hopes and golden wishes

Days are all dark
Nights are all grey
Seems that my life
Just slips away
And so I live
Inside my head
Crying salt tears
Alone in my bed.

Silver hopes and golden wishes
Fill these dreams of mine
So I try to drown them
In another glass of wine.

All night I’m alone
Cold in my bed
Thoughts of your love
Running round my head
Could have been better
Could have tried some more
Could have tried to stop you
Going out the door.

Silver hopes and golden wishes
Fill these dreams of mine
So I try to drown them
In another glass of wine.

Dreams are like kisses
They cut and they scar
Can’t tell just when
You push them too far
My dreams have all died
Held in your hand
My hopes subside to a never never land.

A time

In every life
There comes a time
A time live
A time to die
A time to laugh
A time to cry

In every life
There comes a time
A time for rain
A time for sun
A time for pain
A time to run.

In every life
There comes a time
A time for you
A time for me
A time for truth
A time to see.

In all my life
I’ve fought time
And time goes fast
And time goes slow
And love will last
And love will grow.

Stuck inside of Memphis with the stone cold blues again

How many times have I tried to go
How many times have I said goodbye
I’ve tried so hard don’t you know
But I tell myself the same old lie
Like how I just love it here
And how your love can ease the pain
But I’m stuck inside of Memphis
With the stone cold blues again.

They say the South’s like mother earth
She feeds here own born sons
But I know just what I’m worth
You can’t kill my words with my guns
And now the night is drawing in
And I need to kill my pain
Cos I’m stuck inside of Memphis
With the stone cold blues again.

At times I’ve lived in New York
In the cold hard heart of the city
And all I get from everyone
Is bad advice and pity.
But now I’m back in Tennessee
And I think I’m going insane
Cos I’m stuck inside of Memphis
With the stone cold blues again.
