Caught by my reflection

Blood running through my legs, I just sat down and cry.

Wet pages

Cry until my eyes dry out.
Cry 'till the morning
Can Neil Diamond come and sing dry your eyes for me?
I wish for a phone call.
I wish, just wish

Music for the high on diesel...

Lying in my bed, I think of you
That song goes through my head, the one we both knew
In each line lies another line full of sacred sound
But you're outside where the companies dream and the money goes round

Lying in my bed.
Watching my mistakes,
I listen to the band they said that it could be the 2 of us

The snow might fall and write the lines on the silent page
But you're outside making permanent love to the nuclear age
Two silhouettes by the cash machine make a lovers dance
It's a tango for the lonely wives of the business class

Lying in my bed
Watching my mistakes
I listen to the band
Lying in my bed
With nothing much to say so I listen to the man
He said that it could be the 2 of us

I heard you call from across the city through the stereo sound
And so I crawled there sickeningly pretty as the money went round

Lying in my head watching my mistakes
I listen to the band
And the drums beat in my head
Pianos chime the sound in this prison of the house
And as the illness comes again can you hear me through the rain
As I listen to the band?
As I sing the silent song
Mime each lonely word
Please listen to the man he said that it could be the 2 of us

Alone but not lonely, you and me
Alone but loaded.........

Because I don't fit in my body anymore,
and the streets look like an empty canvas impossible to fill.
No sun comes through the window, gray skies above us, haunting us,
a little breeze hits my face, making it ache.
Love and nothing remains, pain has conquer all,
beautiful week that lies ahead, where are you?

Once I had colors, once I had light.
Thought I'd found love then saw it fade away.
In my dream, there was a tent, the stairs. The room full of people
And the drugs.
I woke up and you were still here, your hand under my neck. You lean to say goodbye and fell on top of me. Held me close, our breathing the same.
We've lost each other. I've lost you. I wonder if you'll have the strength to not look back that day.
I am going to be staring beyond you.
But I do know you love me.

Beautiful baby

Sheets of empty canvas, untouched sheets of clay
Were laid spread out before me as her body once did.
All five horizons revolved around her soul
As the earth to the sun
Now the air I tasted and breathed has taken a turn

Ooh, and all I taught her was everything
Ooh, I know she gave me all that she wore
And now my bitter hands chafe beneath the clouds
Of what was everything.
Oh, the pictures have all been washed in black, tattooed everything...

I take a walk outside
I'm surrounded by some kids at play
I can feel their laughter, so why do I sear?
Oh, and twisted thoughts that spin round my head
I'm spinning, oh, I'm spinning
How quick the sun can drop away

And now my bitter hands cradle broken glass
Of what was everything?
All the pictures have all been washed in black, tattooed everything...

All the love gone bad turned my world to black
Tattooed all I see, all that I am, all I'll be... yeah...

I know someday you'll have a beautiful life,
I know you'll be a sun in somebody else's sky, but why
Why, why can't it be, can't it be mine

Corpse without a name. Motionless limbs spread over the bed.
Eyes open staring to the roof. No life in them.
Every breath pains, a knife buried deep within my skin, every second making me terribly aware of my rotten smell. My joints crying pain. My blood circulating pain. My muscles running on pain.
My skin covered in pain.
Pain is my name, my alias, my self, my tears. Red runs down my legs, covers my arms, bursts out from every pore, bits of me falling to the ground.
I cry to the sky, while my nails dig deeper in my flesh, tearing me inside out, leaving me behind. But I am still here, alone, broken, not the owner of my body, trapped inside of it, slave to its pain, to its smell of death, to its never ending curse.

Guiding light

As pain takes over me, open wounds that won´t heal, I close my eyes and think of you. I can´t see your face, I curl in my bed, cold, always cold, force myself to remember. But I can´t remember your face. Then for a second your name is not there. And I am pain. Blood runs down my arms and legs. And I start to understand that you were never real.
Cry, little baby, cry. I hold an empty blanket in my lap, cuddle it, pretend there´s a baby inside. Our baby. A precious thing, all curls and eyes. Milla comes and with sad eyes lays her head next to me. I show her the baby. She looks at me, knowing there´s no baby, wagging her tail pretending to follow me in the game. A light breeze comes through the window, the first day of sun, I wish to get close to its warmth, but bed is my territory.
Soft cotton against my skin, makes me feel fresh and doesn't hurt. A fly comes through the window. I hate flies. They make me feel as if I was already dead and my rotten smell was luring them into the house.
My joints ache as I try to reach for butterflies, light sparks and shadows over my head.
No tears for the lonely woman trapped in her room.

For in my eyes is always winter

And time stands still.

It makes no diff'rence where I turn
I can't get over you and the flame still burns
It makes no diff'rence, night or day
The shadow never seems to fade away

And the sun don't shine anymore
And the rains fall down on my door

Now there's no love
As true as the love
That dies untold
But the clouds never hung so low before

It makes no diff'rence how far I go
Like a scar the hurt will always show
It makes no diff'rence who I meet
They're just a face in the crowd
On a dead-end street
And the sun don't shine anymore
And the rains fall down on my door

These old love letters
Well, I just can't keep
'Cause like the gambler says
Read 'em and weep
And the dawn don't rescue me no more

Without your love I'm nothing at all
Like an empty hall it's a lonely fall
Since you've gone it's a losing battle
Stampeding cattle
They rattle the walls

And the sun don't shine anymore
And the rains fall down on my door

Well, I love you so much
It's all I can do
Just to keep myself from telling you
That I never felt so alone before
The band

Dancing in the dark

I get up in the evening
and I ain't got nothing to say
I come home in the morning
I go to bed feeling the same way
I ain't nothing but tired
Man I'm just tired and bored with myself
Hey there baby, I could use just a little help

You can't start a fire
You can't start a fire without a spark
This gun's for hire
even if we're just dancing in the dark

Message keeps getting clearer
radio's on and I'm moving 'round the place
I check my look in the mirror
I wanna change my clothes, my hair, my face
Man I ain't getting nowhere
I'm just living in a dump like this
There's something happening somewhere
baby I just know that there is

You can't start a fire
you can't start a fire without a spark
This gun's for hire
even if we're just dancing in the dark

You sit around getting older
there's a joke here somewhere and it's on me
I'll shake this world off my shoulders
come on baby this laugh's on me

Stay on the streets of this town
and they'll be carving you up alright
They say you gotta stay hungry
hey baby I'm just about starving tonight
I'm dying for some action
I'm sick of sitting 'round here trying to write this book
I need a love reaction
come on now baby gimme just one look

You can't start a fire sitting 'round crying over a broken heart
This gun's for hire
Even if we're just dancing in the dark
You can't start a fire worrying about your little world falling apart
This gun's for hire
Even if we're just dancing in the dark
Even if we're just dancing in the dark
Even if we're just dancing in the dark
Even if we're just dancing in the dark
Hey baby
