STAND ABOVE ME

we always stick together
like we’re something made of glue
and justify the passion
saying one is more than two

but if you don’t believe the words
they’re surely to come true
there’s one thing that’s so obvious
but it’s something you won’t do

because you stand above me
but I know you don’t
you say you love me
but I know you won’t

we always say we’re happy

when you know it’s never true
but I was just so frightened
of the things you’d say and do

but if you don’t believe the words
they’re surely to come true
it’s starting to be so obvious
that it’s something you won’t do

because you stand above me
but I know you don’t
you say you love me
but I know you won’t

but if you don’t believe the words
they’re surely to come true
there’s one thing that’s so obvious
but it’s something you won’t do

because you stand above me
but I know you don’t
you say you love me
but I know you won’t

EVERYDAY

everyday
I’m on my knees to pray
since I kissed you once
and I held you once
things have never been the same

and I’ve tried
god knows I’ve tried
but there’s nothing left
in the world today
that’s making sense in any way

even now, I’m in love with you
no matter what you put me through
there’ll always be someone like you
who lets me down again

but every time
I’ve tried to make you mine
it seems there’s nothing else
I will ever find
that will make you stay
make you change your mind
sad to say
it’s the same thing everyday
but there’s no one else
in the world today
that will make it change
take the pain away

even now, I’m in love with you
no matter what you put me through
there’ll always be someone like you
who lets me down again

and everyday no matter what I do
I’m more and more in love with you
I can’t believe it’s really true
you wouldn’t really go

KING OF STONE

once again he’s all alone
here I am the king of stone
gave away the love he’d know
just to be the king of stone

the only life he’s ever known {the empty world that he’d made his own}
but I don’t believe I’m made of stone

now you’ve seen me
now you don’t
can you hear me
because quite soon you won’t
so save your whispers
for some other man
because I can hear you you
and I know who I am

once again he’s all alone
here I am the king of stone

once again he’s all alone
here I am the king of stone

once again he’s all alone
here I am the king of stone

DOLLAR GIRL

when you know the dollar girl
is coming home again
then you know that destiny
will never be your friend

her heart is in her pocket
and her head is in your hands
you thought it would be easy
but I guessed she changed your plans

now you know there’s no release
from all the tears she cries
slowly it seems obvious
she’ll love you til she dies

stay with me now
til the end of the day
if you stay we can talk
I will hear what you say
if you leave me tonight
while my heart is on fire
stay with me now
I will be your desire

and when you go the dollar girl
will justify your care
she burns you with her confidence
and prays that you won’t dare

now you know there’s no release
from all the tears she cries
slowly it seems obvious
she’ll love you til she dies

stay with me now
til the end of the day
if you stay, we can talk
I will hear what you say
if you leave me tonight
while my heart is on fire
stay with me now
I will be your desire

now you know there’s no release
from all the tears she cries
slowly it seems obvious
she’ll love you til she dies

stay with me now
til the end of the day
if you stay, we can talk
I will hear what you say
if you leave me tonight
while my heart is on fire
stay with me now
I will be your desire

DREAM OF ME

say it isn’t right
to be alone tonight
so in love with you
tell you what I’m gonna
do about it

I had an idea
based on a love theme
I had an idea
based on a love theme

all I ever do
is what you want me to
so in love with you
tell you what I’m gonna
do about it

I had an idea
based on a love theme
I had an idea
based on a love theme

say it isn’t right
to be alone tonight
so in love with you
tell you what I’m gonna
do about it

I had an idea
based on a love theme
I had an idea
based on a love theme

SUNDAY MORNING

Sunday morning
brings the dawn in
it’s just a restless feeling
by my side

early dawning
Sunday morning
it’s all the wasted years
so close behind

watch out the world’s behind you
there’s always someone around you
who will call
it’s nothing at all

Sunday morning
and I’m falling
I’ve got {a} feeling
I don’t want to know

early dawning
Sunday morning
it’s all the streets you’ve crossed
not so long ago

watch out the world’s behind you
there’s always someone around you
who will call
it’s nothing at all

watch out the world’s behind you
there’s always someone around you
who will call
it’s nothing at all

Sunday morning…

LOVE YOU AND HATE YOU

I love and hate you
at the same time
I need you don’t need you
is that such a crime

I wouldn’t walk down the road
to say goodbye
I couldn’t give you up
to some other guy
I wouldn’t do anything
that you asked me to
but you know
that it’s true
I still love you

I want you to help me
to make up my mind
I need you to hear me at least
some of the time

I wouldn’t blame you
if you had to run away
I couldn’t stand to live
like this another day
but I would sell my soul
to get you back today
cause you know
that it’s true
I still love you

I wouldn’t blame you
if you had to run away
I couldn’t stand to live
like this another day
but I would sell my soul
to get you back today
cause you know
that it’s true
I still love you

and you know
that it’s true
I still love you

and you know
that it’s true
I still love you

HEAVEN IS

heaven is a woman
dressed in blue
and heaven is knowing
someone who is in love with you
heaven is a television
left on all day
and heaven is making love
and then running away

heaven is
heaven is

heaven is believing
what your eyes don’t see
and heaven is Christy Canyon
falling in love with me
heaven in waking up
to be a millionaire
and heaven is spending the whole next day
just walking on air

heaven is
heaven is
heaven is
heaven is

all these things you say and do
it doesn’t mean that much to you
but all these things you said to me
the memories won’t set me free
heaven is a dream
when it won’t come true
and heaven is the sky
when it’s always blue
heaven is the girl
with short black hair
and heaven is a woman
with enough to spare

heaven is
heaven is
heaven is
heaven is

heaven is
and heaven is taking a holiday
and heaven is having you here to stay
and heaven is never ever saying sorry
and heaven is as easy as abc
and heaven is your eyes when they’re always blue
and heaven is just right here with you

heaven is
heaven is
heaven is

BEST YEARS OF OUR LIVES

where we’re going
heaven knows
{we’re} lost and falling
and it shows

and I know you won’t believe me
and I know it won’t seem right
and I beg you just to leave me
when we’d argue and we’d fight
but even as we stumble
through the darkness and the light
you know these were
the best years of our lives

sent to hurt me
and you will
tear the seasons
from the hill

and I know you won’t believe me
and I know it won’t seem right
and I beg you just to leave me
when we’d argue and we’d fight
but even as we stumble
through the darkness and the light
you know these were
the best years of our lives

and I know you won’t believe me
and I know it won’t seem right
and I beg you just to leave me
when we’d argue and we’d fight
but even as we stumble
through the darkness and the light
you know these were
the best years of our lives

and I know you won’t believe me
and I know it won’t seem right
and I beg you just to leave me
when we’d argue and we’d fight
but even as we stumble
through the darkness and the light
you know these were
the best years of our lives

CHRISTINE

As the sun descends too quickly
behind the distant city
she will ride under the water
she will leave her son and daughter

reduced to lying naked
to feed those she holds sacred
she is bare of clothes and beauty
on display in her nudity

if someone calls her name out
all she ever hears are cars
through the window in the bathroom
through the broken glass and bars

seeking comfort in the wallet
where she placed eighty dollars
when the last one has departed
she can slide into the darkness

and slowly down the river
the current pulls her under
and it bathes her in its splendor
is unmoved by her surrender

and faint through the water
the lights like brittle stars
someone called her name out
she no longer hears the cars

Christine…

ONLY TEARS

only tears are meant to fall
only once and that is all
and when you start to lose the fight
and nothing else will make it right

only hearts are meant to break
and when you make that last mistake
and everything you tried to say
but all the words got in the way

only god can hear you now
when you make that final vow
say the words and say them loud
say the words that make you proud

and when you lose someone you depend upon
only tears will fall
and when you need a friend I will send you one
only tears are meant to fall

only tears are meant to fall
only once and that is all

only tears are meant to fall
only once and that is all

only tears are meant to fall
only once and that is all

only tears are meant to fall
only once and that is al
