The End Of The Beginning

It’s the end of the night and it’s empty in here
You look at the clock and then empty my beer
You’re a girl with the words that can break me in half right now
It’s the end of the beginning

Lay down your tongue and your pride by your side
It’s hard and it’s dry but it’s sharp like a knife
And everyone knew it would come but ignored those words
It’s the end of the beginning

The truth is a word never said in the dead of night
At your feet here I kneel, look up, close my eyes
And it’s true that I’m just trying to make you cry
It’s the end of the beginning

It’s the opening hour and there’s nobody here
You look at the clock and the pour me a beer
You’re a girl with the eyes that can warm me inside and show
Me the end of the beginning

If The Last Kiss Made You Cry

You like to hang around
Until they run aground
He left you sitting with your feet in the sand

So he now he’s out of the frame
But baby, you’ll need a name
And you released when he let go of your hand

Well if the first kiss is a lie just get away, yeah
And if the last kiss makes you cry then get away now

So if the first kiss is a lie, and the last kiss makes you cry
Well then for god’s sake get away tonight

You didn’t give too much
You didn’t take too much
And the taste of blood is on your tongue

It didn’t hurt too much
You didn’t feel too much
But you don’t feel quite as alive as when you were young

Well if the first kiss is a lie just get away, yeah
And if the last kiss makes you cry then get away now
There’s not much time to let go by, so get away now

So if the first kiss is a lie, and the last kiss left you dry
Well then you know you gotta fly tonight

Down By The Bay

Lift your head from your pillow
Put your feet on the floor
Wide awake, getting ready
It’s the day you’ve waited for

Early morning to the clinic
Driving slowly through the streets
Thinking what to make for dinner
Wonder what is on TV

You can do
This, it’s not the worst
You’ve been through

Take the pills from the bottle
Count them out and kick them back
This won’t last forever
You’ll be up and on track

And the road back is a long one
But not so bad with someone there
We will be here waiting for you
We will be here to take care

You can do
This could be the worst
You’ll be through
You can do
This could be the last
You’ll go through

Down by the water
Down by the bay

Who Is The Man

You drag your world
Around on your back
Your feet are flat
Your eyes are black
A perfect thing
As things will come
But you undo
What has been done

I loved the warm, the light that shone
I love you even though you’re gone

Who is the man
Who told you fight
But gave you drugs
Put out your light
I want to wrap
My arms around you
I want to wrap
The heavens around you

I loved the warm, the light that shone
I love you even though you’re gone

Lost In The Crowd

I’m lost in the crowd
And I can’t see your face
Your hand slipped away from mine
Have you left me again?

Was always lonely in a crowd
Couldn’t take the strangers stare
But I could look at you all day, you’d keep me calm
But have you left me again?

Could you just tell me when you’re going?
Maybe leave a goodbye note
I don’t need a big production
Cause it’s not knowing
That breaks my heart
And makes it hard

I’m lost in the crowd
I thought I saw you today
It wasn’t you but was nice to think of us
Together again

Stranger In Your Room

When it’s a stranger in your room
Just act normal, don’t be rude

But when he turns
And looks away
Take your chance
Make a break

It could even be your father
If he’s a stranger don’t even bother

But when he turns
And looks away
Take your chance
Make a break
When the words
Sound alien
Make a break
There and then

The Lost Week

Railroad gently rocks your head you
Fell asleep across from me

I watched the hills slip by
Somewhere crossing this great landscape
I lost your moist affection

I watched it all slip by
I barely now remember
Stealing little kisses
This isn’t what I promised
When I took you far from home
I barely now remember
The stars and the red wine

Blue smoke wreathed around your head you
Were stoned out of your mind you
Were something of a ghost

That lost week with the blood then to the clinic
They said it wasn’t your fault
And you said it wasn’t mine

I only now remember
The numbness in my fingers
This isn’t how a promise
Fulfills itself for life
I barely now remember
Stealing little kisses
This isn’t what I promised
When I took you far from home
I barely now remember
The stars and the red wine

Highway gently rocks your head you
Fell asleep beside me
I watched our lives slip by

Night Bird

I am a night bird
Sent to watch you
From the trees
I’m not supposed to
Be afraid
But I am

These days there are many creatures who eat our kind

I am a night bird
And I’ll sing
You to sleep
Songs of my children
Who I’ll never
Get to see

These days I don’t hate you, but you’ll kill me anyway
