If It's Not You There's a swan park near we can go for free we can watch the clouds in the sky but it will rain all day on this sun drenched street if you pass me by It's just no fun it's no fun it's just no fun it's no fun it's just no fun if it's not you There's a dark old house boarded up for years we can make a home of our own but it will float away on my flood of tears if you tell me no It's just no fun it's no fun it's just no fun it's no fun it's just no fun if it's not you I have a teacup filled with earth I dug from under your window I want to plant us in it and watch it grow for ever and ever and ever and ever There's a dream I had you were in it too we just sat for hours It's just no fun it's no fun it's just no fun it's no fun it's just no fun if it's not you

Time To Fly 06:03
Time To Fly No one's ever gonna crawl without a heart No one's ever gonna see him torn apart No one's ever gonna hurt his pride Take him home and tear him up inside He's ready now, so ready to fly Did you ever find a place where no one dreams Will you ever see the face that can't be seen Was there ever any doubt about it Was there time for him to talk about it Hope someday that he can laugh about it Open up and leave the fear behind Take a chance the light is just outside the door You don't have to look, just close your eyes it's time to fly Someone told him that he had to play his part Someone told him that the end was only the start No one told him that they lied about it If he tried that he could live without it Hope someday that he can laugh about it Open up and leave the fear behind Take a chance the light is just outside the door You don't have to look, just close your eyes it's time to fly

Baby That Day May Come You came with flowers and a hint of trouble to come The restless scent of danger yea that was the one You found me waiting like a bird for winter to end The flight of one lone raven high on the wind The calling of an angel Is the crying of ones heart In the dark hour of loves despair you wanted to be my one When the world ends and the light goes out Then baby that day may come My love’s a stranger Like a dog I followed you home To lay down beside you yet you’re all alone You talk about the future You talk about how precious and few are The days we had together a let down to you Oh but conversations started Are words hung in midair In the dark hour of loves despair you wanted to be my one When the world ends and the light goes out Then baby that day may come Before my veneration I was locked outside the door With images of misdirected passions on the floor Now we’ve reached the end of what this whole charade was for And the night won’t cry anymore The calling of an angel Is the crying of ones heart In the dark hour of loves despair you wanted to be my one When the world ends and the light goes out Then baby that day may come

Drag Town Afternoon Red brick wall staring down at crumbling plaster by the old lamp is a mattress where on lies the human shell tossed aside no heart to master loss of pride she wore her red dress in the gray rain of a simple drag town afternoon three steps down lead to where good things imagined silver trays and white silk passions come in numbers for the few turn in back a courtyard fashioned in the center main attraction is the lady of a simple drag town afternoon she lifts her head the clouds race by the sun refuses to be high the wind cries out the birds take wing another night is closing in In the dust, records from a time of pleasure and her books, the poet's measure tells of sorrow's thirst for love kept with memories burning treasures once a rose bloomed in the desert on the island of a simple drag town afternoon she tips the cup her life runs out a pale moon rises in the east the fading hour light's dimming door another night of dreamless sleep In the dust trace a picture of tomorrow choose a new face now and borrow a reflection of a simple drag town afternoon

Big Blond & Dumb green green velvet lined evening wear left on a rock at the beach green scream washed out by five o'clock wanting now only to sleep blue blue blue colors everything smearing on paper and stone true blue following anyone ruining our plans to atone bringing us back to your throne my hair's in my eyes and my fingers are stinging my arms and my legs have gone numb but I feel in my heart the world soon will be singing salvation from under the thumb it's hard being big, blond and dumb red red what was it that woman said caught with your pants at your knees dead red off with his other head try not to beg if you please and cover your mouth when you sneeze my hair's in my eyes and my fingers are stinging my arms and my legs have gone numb but I feel in my heart the world soon will be singing salvation from under the thumb still it's hard being big, blond and dumb

Off Is On 03:03
Off Is On There is no Tao, no curse of hell, no cast of shadows lurking no here and now, no time to tell, when things are hardly working hardly working don't be sorry don't think you won't come back again don't be sorry every off is on (will we ever fly again?) Your narrow sight, your faded walk, you're tryin' to be so casual You're always right, transparent talk, you're stalking oh so gradual oh so gradual don't be sorry You know that you'll be back again don't be sorry every off is on (will we ever fly again?) for a moment you had peace We came from fire, or last desire, oh life is so uncertain wee took a vow, now take a bow, before the final curtain final curtain don't be sorry you know you're all I want to be don't be sorry every off is on (will we ever fly again?)

Dead End Angel Where is my dead end angel, my saint of sins unatoned I lost my dead end angel, dark prophet written in stone Here in the darkest night shadows warn the day She brought a virgin’s light, visions wrapped in gray Where is my dead end angel she wandered out in the crowd I lost my dead end angel princess of reason in sound Here in the darkest night I have ever seen Blessed with the gift of sight she passed out of the dream The day will hide our fear inside And we will chase the rising tide No one will see no one will cry the magic lasts until were Here in the darkest night I have ever seen Blessed with the gift of sight she passed out of the dream Where is my dead end angel, my saint of sins unatoned I lost my dead end angel, dark prophet written in stone Here in the darkest night I have ever seen Blessed with the gift of sight she passed out of the dream

So Easy 04:20
So Easy The cat came home after three nights in the rain looking sad and sorry at her but looking back behind again She let him in without even saying a word he cuddled up beside her and began to purr If it was only that simple, if it was only so easy to come home to you, to come home to you If it was only that simple, if it was only so easy to come home to you, to come home to you Your door is locked and I no longer feel the need to stand there and holler at it or bang until I bleed You used to answer even if you weren't alone I used to walk right in, yes I did, and make myself at home If it was only that simple, if it was only so easy To come home to you, to come home to you If it was only that simple, if it was only so easy To come home to you, to come home to you I knock into town and I don't like what I see There's lots of happy, smiling, laughing, foolish as can be I used to be one of those poor losers too I used to walk around singing love songs to you If it was only that simple, if it was only so easy I’d come home to you, to come home to you If it was only that simple, if it was only so easy I’d come home to you, to come home to you

Inside My Head warm rain dampened ground soul lost deep in sound you get inside my head you get inside my head eyes of silent fire wash in my desire you get inside my head you get inside my head my hands intent on searching laying bare, the walls come crashing in pieces swept away on waves of sorrow's wings circle over sphere lift the vale of tears you get inside my head you get inside my head you get inside my head you get inside my head staggered step on stair narrow voice in prayer you get inside my head you get inside my head light in forest dark sun on crystal shard you get inside my head you get inside my head I have this vision cloaked in fears of longing, on to morning awake in darkened hollow watchful skies of gray and yellow embracing arms untethered, sailing off in fatal weather weed all the dim hearts out to waste this precious thing soften nail in stone struggle on alone you get inside my head you get inside my head you get inside my head you get inside my head

Jennifer Field Jennifer Field watches the sun come up And plans all her sights for the day Jennifer Field puts on her make up And chases the shadows away She goes down to the morning refugees And she walks along the streets And she stops to talk with all the different people that she sees Jennifer Field dresses in colors She even goes out in the rain And Jennifer Field cares about others She wants to heal all of their pain She goes down to the morning refugees And she walks along the streets And she stops to talk with all the different people that she sees Jennifer God is always making plans for you Jennifer, Jennifer Jennifer Field sleeps like a baby Knowing the world is all right And Jennifer Field wakes to the same thing That every day follows the night She goes down to the morning refugees And she walks along the streets And she stops to talk with all the different people that she sees To the morning refugees And she walks along the streets And she stops to talk with all the different people that she sees
