The Words of Jeffrey Ladd
All lyrics copyright 1992 - 2010 Division Heart, BMI
I'm sitting in distance I'm sitting in silence
swallows swallows angels
Between Heaven and the Deep Blue Sea
Feel this night, And the darkness that pours over me. Feel her night, Feel her hand, again. The fears are over, I am giving in and I close my eyes. The fears are over, as I walk away towards the waterline. You take my heart, You take my hand Lead me to the Promised Land Sweet fire burning love She said, she believes these are strange times Under Heavensong Breathe this life, She is so much more and so pure now. Breathe her life, She is faraway, tonight. The tears are over; I am warm again as I touch her skin. The tears are over, as I walk in peace towards the song within.You take my heart, You take my hand Lead me to the Promised Land Sweet fire burning love She said, she believes these are strange times Under Heavensong She's everything I need (no words can be spoken) She's all that I believe (hands outstretched so holy) She's passion that I feel (silently the ghost inside) She's hope and all that's real (under heavensong) She's hope and all that's real (under heavensong)
Blood Of Love
Pathways that lead to angels and brightness, Laid in stone with stars and care. Secrets of sound, we cannot hope to hide, Held within this silent cup. It's everything we prayed for, It's everything we thought we would never share, It's everything we hoped for, Warm and open, waiting for the heart. Prayers that sing and raise the clouds, Cut my soul with word's despair. Cradled for a better day and held within this silent cup. And in this sun that's rising, Comes the prick and the blood of love. And in the silent sorrow, Every breath is sweeter and the taste warms me, Deeper than the shaman's prayer. She's everything I asked for, She's everything that brings us to God, She's everything I asked for, Safe and willing to her heart. book of stars A thousand faces here for me to walk around, The road of certainty is never really found, But still the footsteps fall and lead me to your door While the ripples of our lives roll upon the shore. The echo's laughter is more than in my head, The only hope for peace is lying on your bed, Still comes the light of innocence and beauty's something more While the ghosts of all our yesterdays are never really pure.Inside your eyes The book of stars will burn so bright Inside your heart The book of stars will burn so bright Inside your room The book of stars will light the way to pretty things
Given Grace on water's edge, Walking in the path of time, I turn towards the wind and rain, And find myself inside the tide of ever turning laughter, In places that are filled with God, In places that we come to bow.
Given Grace on water's edge, Inspired by these ghosts of mine, I walk into the water cool, Too feel again this soul so tired, waiting for it's healer, With open hands and open heart, I drink the tears the lead me bow.
Sanctified at Mary's hand, Hope held out and given safety, I open up the sorrow wide, Too taste of heaven and fall with stars, In rooms of peace and healing prayer, In rooms of sound and silence there, I give in to the snow that's falling, And come to find my world to bow.
Changing the day into night Riding winds and rain that feel so right. She waits so close and patiently, For burning suns and truth in flames To warm this room, to warm her heart, A ghost to hold her hope across the brilliant light that glows. Changing fear into this peace Holding flowers that drop to her feet. She waits so sure and innocent, For rooms of sound and joy inside To burst from open hands and silence, A ghost to heal her empty soul as she lays beneath the stars. Giving up and giving in Shaping dreams and shadows she leaves me. I wait inside this room again, For cooling hands and gentle words To feel so real, to feel her kiss, To call her name, the angel, and sit beneath her gaze once more. Changing tears into this life Prayers, like leaves, soft beneath my feet. I wait beside this deep blue pool, For the footsteps that lead me back towards her door To believe in love, to feel her kiss, A ghost to hold, a child pure, a chance to watch the sky now sleep.
She lays across this golden sky Illuminating all my days and all these nights. She becomes all that I am And I become the rain and stars that fall from heaven. Alighting on the ground we walk And the words that spill and crawl, Joining with the precious one, holding up this holy name. Dying from the fears within She summons up the hope again and places it upon my hands. She holds my heart when all is dark And lay in wait, my mind alone, for silence and the song. Stepping on the stones of peace And water cool upon my skin, Hoping for the precious one, to come with love and healing eyes. I stand behind the door once more Entranced by all the ghosts and movements pure. Held by dreams and empty rooms I reach right through the colourflow and I become the only one. Falling deep in the time she moves And tasting all she leaves behind, Reaching for the precious one and how she flows throughout me now. Believing in her touch, believing in her prayers I am whole and I am healed and feel her arms around me warm. Drinking of the pool besides the statue of the lost Hearing all the cries at once, I have felt the cold and wind And drowned within the sea of she.
darkness and shadows
Moving through the cover of night, Falling into pools of all that is right, Looking for heaven in places on earth, Drowning in darkness and shadows of you. Sunlight falls and the pale glow casts, Words that move through sadness and glass, Piercing the clouds that seem out of reach, Weeping in silence and pictures of you. Give me love, give me hope and sounds of God. Take my joy, take my soul and memories of another day. You are grace, you are peace and sacrificed to love again, Take this heart, take this man and colour me with purity. Colour me with you, colour me with you. Watching as the hours slowly fade, Promise me you will always stay by my side, Sliding into dreams and children's whispers, Falling into arms that call me back again. Daylight comes and chases back the cold, Remaining in my room without your hold, Wishing for the touch I once felt on my skin, Reaching out and reaching in for you again in summer's garden. Give me love, give me hope and sounds of God. Take my joy, take my soul and memories of another day. You are grace, you are peace and sacrificed to love again, Take this heart, take this man and colour me with purity. Colour me with you, colour me with you.
Soft the burning heart in fields in which we sit and pray, Wait beneath the blackened sky for just another day. Sorry for the things I've done, sorry for the words I say, Sacrificed and carried down, placed into your arms again, Crucified and eulogized, with streams of water and with wine. Lift me up and make me whole, give me strength to rise once more, Let me walk beside the steps you have left like sand upon the shore. Veils that cover faces, shadows cast upon the wall, Images of innocence break and fall, slain around my feet, Stained with broken promises and covered slow beneath these sheets. Wishing like a child for snow Waiting for the love I know She is close and she is pure Giving up and giving in Praying for your heart so slow You are just a candle glow You become the light and I become your darkstar In the sound of mornings' break, I am lost and silent here, Sit behind your coloured words and drift away into the fear. Mourning for the loss of you, mourning for the day that's near, Drifting up and falling down, waiting for your touch and warmth, Sanctified and vilified, the kiss of fire and the cool. Let me down and give me breath, give me things to keep you here, Take the very spirit of the god in me, the god that makes me clear. Birds that fly above you, carry on the colours here, Cover soft the skin she bleeds, heaven at her feet, Draped with sweet caresses mine and swallowed up in peace. Wishing like a child for snow Waiting for the love I know She is close and she is pure Giving up and giving in Praying for your heart so slow You are just a candle glow You become the light and I become your darkstar
days fall by
Days fall by and winter fades from here A new light breaks dawn and cradles me from fear. I turn again like the wind across my face And disappear in silent sorrow and leave without a trace. Quilted by the warmth of God I stumble blind, I taste no taste, I count the stones of angels near. Memories of brilliant things and heaven's chaste Removes the sound and evenflow, delivers me to another place. Will ever I see the sun and lay upon redemption's peace Will ever I be the one I only wanted to be And if the sound of Mary comes and creeps into my heart Will ever I walk with joy and come to rest upon the sea. Days fall by, one by one Captured in the glass again Days fall by, days fall by Asleep within the arms of hope.
I sit beneath the sky glow, I wish for nothing more now, To watch the winds and nothing more, She is the prayer at heaven's door, I fall inside as shadows change here, I fall behind the beauty sphere, To drink the tears of Mary's gift, To be the sand that always shifts, copy and the swallow dances above the sun. To feel the pull and keep the stain, Amidst the stars and heaven, Against the days of rememberance
The silence that I bring her, The gentle touch she leaves. Shadows in this beating heart, Shadows in my head. A memory of just one kiss, Words that fall inside this place. Shadows part my soul inside, Shadows cut me deep. The shimmer in the water, The only thing she’s ever known. Sanctified in her own joy, Sanctified, she’s beauty’s angel, Who came to gives us more. The picture in the mirror, The picture she becomes. Sanctified, she gives to me, This reason to believe. Standing in the shifting sands, Deeper drowning, In her aspect and her warmth. Standing in the shifting sands, Deeper drowning, In the way she holds me still.
End of it All
Inside this circle, she sits and she stares In her Jesus pose, she is everywhere She is falling now and falling faster (than before) In the drag of time, she's a picture gray The things that she does the things that we say She's got time to kiss and hear the voices (so serene) By the waters edge, the end of it all In the burning streets, you can see her crawl She's the only one and waits for something : Belief and flowers that you hold Is the burning from within, it's a prayer and it's a lie Faith and the words upon your lips Is the taste upon your skin, it's a healing and a kiss As the night comes in, she's inside of it all The palms of her hand, slide across the wall She is happy here, forever after In the empty light by the broken door She is grabbing peace, shadows on the floor She's a lonely girl and no one calls her here Belief and flowers that you hold Is the burning from within, it's a prayer and it's a lie Faith and the words upon your lips Is the taste upon your skin It's a healing and a kiss Is the taste upon your skin - it's a healing and a kiss In the wind and rain, sit her silent eyes In her every move, she lives and she dies She is hungry now, no love to feed her In a place called home, she sits in her room By the mirror there, she can't find the truth She is sleeping deep and nothing wakes her In her shallow dreams burst the joy and heart She's a memory see her come part She's so many things but nothing holy (nothing holy) She's so many things but nothing holy (nothing holy) She's so many things but nothing holy (nothing holy)
everything you are….
Walk with me beneath the sky, Let me take your hand in mine, Let me disappear with you again and find the heart that calls us home. Walk with me in fields of green, Let me take your tears within, Let me dream of brilliant things and fill our world with silent prayers. Overcome with all you are, I am nothing without you and give my soul to higher love, I wait beside your water cool and feel the peace upon me. Stay with me behind these clouds, Let me walk in shadow's love, Let me taste your kiss again and feel your hand that saves the heart. Stay with me in heavens light, Heal me with your words so pure, Heal me with the things you hold and flower's from your garden sweet. Overcome with every breath, I am lost and found again and given to the space between, I wait beneath the fallen leaves and lay beside your whispers there.
So cold this day it falls…. Standing there, Standing in the middle of my heart, This pool of desperation. Take my hand, Take me where the pyre burns it all… burns it all. So pretty time, so pretty I dream of this when you're near me I only touch, I only taste With open arms I bring you faith… Are you there? Are you just the silence in my room? The silence that becomes here. Empty stare, Take me to your God and bring me love…bring me love So pretty time, so pretty I dream of this when you're near me I only touch, I only taste With open arms I bring you faith…
Fall From Grace with Me
This heart, delicate and cool, wrapped around the brilliant boys Running at the water's edge. Your kiss, soft upon my lips, filling me with pretty things and the lies you hold inside.A child comes, takes you by the hand The rain is hard but you don't understand The pictures on the wall. Morning light, laughter in my room A senseless love I knew would die too soon Fall from grace… So bright, the sun that cuts your eyes, harboring the empty words Pouring like those yesterdays. Sad girl, sitting all alone, waiting for the dying night and innocence you seek.A child comes, takes you by the hand The rain is hard but you don't understand The pictures on the wall. Morning light, laughter in my room A senseless love I knew would die too soon Fall from grace…I believe that your touch is part of everything, but nothing seems to fit, I believe that the love you say you give to me is nothing but a joke. I believe that your touch is part of everything, but nothing seems to fit, I believe that the love you say you give to me is nothing but a joke.A child comes, takes you by the hand The rain is hard but you don't understand The pictures on the wall. Morning light, laughter in my room A senseless love I knew would die too soon Fall from grace with me; fall from grace with me Fall from grace with me; fall from grace with me With Me, With Me
She walks alone, she moves between, On streets of leaves and stone. Her shadows cast, her heart reveals, On panes of fallen glass. She comes to me, she steals my soul, In dreams and fallen light. Her eyes are pure, her joy alive, Inside the darkness of this night. I taste her ghost inside my room and in the words she leaves. Against the stone, the hand of God is holding back these tears. I fall into the sands of time and in a picture of her smile. Against the wall, the angel sits and saves me for her while. She feeds the fire, she feeds desire, In the echoes of the heart. Her image thrown, her image shown, On walls of time and doubt. She carries love, she carries stars, In arms that craddle peace. Her touch so soft, the angel breathes, In the rain that covers me. I taste the very taste of heaven and fall around her feet. Against the stone, the passion draws the flame so sweet. I fall into the thought of you and give up holding change. Against the hope, the vision draws as embers slowly fade.
All that I see and all that I hear, Is everything that God has given And all the words you bare from heaven. All of the sounds and all of these tears, Is everything that you have woven, And all the joys that you awaken. In the corner's of the sun you stand, In the silence of your outstretched hand I am falling in your eyes again. In the way the shadows fallen, In the way the angels cry, You become the peace of Mary.
Garden Of Truth
Finding my way, finding my reason, Losing the things I love to the simmering sting. Cold and empty, sitting in this garden, Over and over, I cry in this space made of treason. Will the trail of leaves and stone be the road to heaven? Standing pressed against the anger and fear, Nothing to believe in except the wind and rain. Hunger fills me, tears across my face, Laughter from her sullen voice runs inside my head, Over and over, the words fall from her mouth. Will the taste of silence ever lead me back to her? Chorus: Too many faces stained and hollow To many words that don't mean a thing Wishing for another chance, drowning in a water shallow Tell me is the darkness safe Tell me that you will forgive these things With this kiss upon my lips, will I find my own salvation? Glancing at peace, grasping the stars here, Imagining a way that lies between shadow and light. Forgetting the comfort, penitence and emptiness, Watching and waiting for memories of all our yesterdays. Will the hand of time turn me away from her once more? Immaculate against the black of night, Everything that was profane can never be again. Nothing matters, nothing dies here, Nothing finds it way inside this room, Watching and waiting for ghosts to take my hand. Will the fallen angel ever taste the warming glory?
Through the windows in my heart, There are only distant birds to carry me. Like these moments in the dark, Cast no shadow here. I am happy just to die again (with you). With your hands, please wipe these tears, Take these ghosts and lay them down all over me. With these fires burning deep (inside), There is hope again, I believe, in the sacrifice of love. In the name of the glory yet to come, Will you lay beside me sweetly, Will you kiss me now? In your eyes, spirit of the song, Spirit rise above me, Let me crawl inside you forever. Let me feel it all again.
Towards an inner light she carries on the wild wind. Towards some other night becoming shadows in her room. Against a pane of glass, The stars surround her skin and glimmer in her aspect and shape the joy so sweet. Beneath the pale and hollow she brings the silence inside. Upon the stones so shallow, a brilliance we have never known. Across her eyes, across the wall the changing colours swim, Giving up the heart and glory, Giving in to all she leaves here.
Heaven In Her Eyes
It's just like heaven in her eyes, the taste is sweet, She's Mary pouring over me (the silence all around my heart). Remains the picture on my wall, the fallen hope, She's crawling happy over me (the softness of her velvet kiss).I close my eyes and think of things There you stand, among the stars and so much more I close my eyes to love again There you smile, laughing as you close the door She believes alone, she heals alone She feels alone, she prays alone The candle flickers on the stairs, the night is cold, She brings me flowers in the dark (the turning of her new found joy). Has wrapped me up and shut me tight, her hand is pure, It's magic burning up my soul (the pleasures of no self-control). These tears so colourful and warm, her touch sublime, She's kneeling gently over me, taking all I had to give.I close my eyes and think of things There you stand, among the stars and so much more I close my eyes to love again There you smile, laughing as you close the door She believes alone, she heals alone She feels alone, she prays alone Believes alone (she believes, she believes) Heals alone
In The Rain
I see the shape of things, And there is nothing to the shape of things, It's just a photograph of you. I see the dying light and through the window feel the dying light, It's more a memory of you.The time turns My heart burns endlessly, 'round and around The words show My hope grows far away, in the rain I keep the black and white, And stand inside these dreams in black and white, All my fears are in your hands. I breath this love so pure, just like poison, fill me with the cure. All those stars are in your hands; the stars are in your hands.The time turns My heart burns endlessly, 'round and around The words show My hope grows far away, in the rain in the rain Playing in the rain Laughing in the rain Taking in the rain Fucking in the rain
He opened the door to a world (to a world) A world that once was his And nothing seemed to matter anymore. He opened his heart to a world (to a world) A world that was his child A no one seemed to really care at all Feelings strained, the world is a cold, cruel place - it's indifferent Hope is slain, lost as a boy; he is lost forever - and the angels sing…Johnny's home, lay him down in a field of green He was a good man Johnny's home, lay him down beneath a burning sky He was a pure man He opened his eyes to a world (to a world) A world that once knew love But simple dreams now fall apart. He opened his hands to a world (to a world) A world that lost its life Yet no one held on from the very start Feelings strained, the world is a cold, cruel place - it's indifferent Hope is slain, lost as a boy; he is lost forever - and the angels sing… Johnny's home, lay him down in a field of green He was a good man Johnny's home, lay him down beneath a burning sky He was a pure man Johnny's home, Johnny's home (tonight) Johnny's home, Johnny's home We'll hold him tight We'll hold him tight We'll hold him tight
Dedicated to the memory and the man John DeVita Poet and Friend Taken from us by angels so that he may wipe away the tears of God
Of A Man…
The sound of the words in the hall, Like waves that crash upon the shore, Wash over me and wanting so much more. Leaves me empty and waiting by your door, Leaves me silent and easy to ignore. I dream of something in your eyes, Like birds that float against the skies, Carry me high and watch my body die. Remembrance, is the taste of all I cry, Leaves me so cold and shivering inside. Shed loss and lay it on the ground, Like leaves, cover all that you have found, Cold wind brings us, the perfect way to drown. I think of your heart, of all the pretty sounds, Leaves me bursting and never coming down. Can you take me and will you heal the wounds, Of a man who is lost inside the light, Of a man who is cradled by the plight (of his own soul). Will you forgive me and will you make me feel again, Knowing that the pain will cut you deep here, Knowing that the heart is where the real fears (come to sleep now). Chants and prayers, written on the wall, Carried here and given to us all, The view of heaven, that waits for me to fall. I dream of your room, of footsteps in the hall, Leaves me wondering, watch me writhe and crawl.
On This Night
Like a candle in the hall, you flicker bright and burn it all Heaven opens wide above, rains on me this book called love Feeling things and memories, open up your life to me, never laughing. Hear these sounds inside my heart, you laid them down and fell apart Children calling, voices low, warm this kiss the savior glows Touching joy and emptiness, let me die, your sweet caress Never laughing, never touching.And were these things you gave to me all made of sand
The time is ticking slowly here, fall through my hands I never needed anyone I close my eyes, but you're not there, I close my eyes Like a child pure and warm, you keep me safe, your velvet charm In my blood the spirit flame, holds the fire, this holy name Holding peace and happiness, fill me with your tenderness Never moving, never givingAnd were these things you gave to me all made of sand The time is ticking slowly here, fall through my hands I never needed anyone I close my eyes, but you're not there, I close my eyes You're just this mystery
On this night, you shine so brightly On this night, you shine On this night, you shine so brightly On this night, you shine
And were these things you gave to me all made of sand The time is ticking slowly here, fall through my hands I never needed anyone…but you
One For The Vine
And so I sit, silent and confused, Like youth in flames, like songs of light, By pools of sound and falling night, In hands that never grip the fall, Of leaves from trees and angels souls. Through gates thrown wide, the footfalls break, And ghosts of all of those who've past, Become the hope of livings last, Growing from the stones I tread, On words of God and angers cast. Once I held the smallest sun And walked upon the road that was my own. Shallow, pale and warm Constrained by vines and hopeless blood, The ruins of what once was Heaven have been set before me now. I have gathered petals, the pearls of earth, I have walked to them with the dreams I dream, Yet find the door and the images locked And cast upon themselves. And so I rest and pray once more, For what shall be is kind and pure, As hearts are stilled for silence sure, And silence beckons all along, To tame the sudden and the stranger.
Waiting by these weathered walls, In storms that cry her name and the promise that she stays. Waiting for the warmth again, In these words across her secret stones. Waiting besides the water's edge, Reflected in the pool of my desire here, Touched still by ripples, remains of just another day. Praying for her smile once more, The altar burns and glows the goddess bright once more. Praying for the taste again, The sweetness of her tears brings me back to joy. Praying with her heart so near, Carried in my hands and in my head, Torn apart by brilliance, cradled by her shadow play.
Follow her down and she gives me peace Wrapped around comes morning sound Given to silence and all she is Wrapped around comes laughter sweetly Falling to beauty, the undying spark Wrapped around comes the scent of her skin Sleeps the woman and the child, Beside me here and in the stillness of my heart. Sleeps the mother and the child, The soul of all we say and everything we hold. Sleeps the wisdom, sleeps the hope, The very wind that blows across my face, Torn apart by darkness, laid across the empty floor.
I see your face by the window at night I hear your voice, softly in my head I see your face and it's a mystery to me God knows, this is the place I want to be With you here, beside me With you here, I am lost within these quiet dreams Lost again, lost again I think of you and the stars are part of me I feel your hand, gently brushing back the tears I see your face more holy than before God knows, this is the place I want to be With you here, beside me With you here, I am lost within these quiet dreams Lost again, lost again
Take me down into your hands (into your hands) Water runs, between your fingers, slip the sands Take me, take me, take me, take me down Take me, take me, take me, into your hands I am lost within these quiet dreams, lost again, lost again I am lost within these quiet dreams, lost again, lost again I burn on fire, in the corner of my room I sleep and pray that your heart will keep me strong I see your face, so much purer than a child's God knows, this is the place I want to be
She comes to me in shadows and in mists. She walks with me in darkness and the rain. She weighs souls in the blossom of her hand, So pure is her kiss upon my heart. She prays here and she offers up her light. She kneels here and she changes in the wind. She comes soft as whispers upon my skin, So pure is the smile she leaves to me. If I wait beneath the coloured sky Will the angels fall and die. If I crawl beside her hands once more, Will the angels find the door, And lead me to her room again, and lead me to her eyes. She dreams beside flowers in the garden. She covers me with leaves upon the ground. She lifts the veil of sanctity and ruins, So gently touched by healing tears now. If I crave the taste of god again Will she let me follow her. If I wait inside the ripples here Will she drink the water clear, And give me warmth and peace again, and lead me to her skies.
Breath the air that settles deep, In seams of flesh and hollow hearts, In spaces of the in between that is the chasm wide, And all of love that falls upon the churning sea. Become the thing that matters most, The image lost within the sky, The secrets of these open hands and waves of open tides, Of worlds that take the hidden sounds And worlds of prayers and silent signs. Take these fears and fertile tears and cast them out of my own hell, Make living gods that stand like stone, Remove the lies that are the ripples in the pool I am, And feed the hope of all the stars that is my deepest peace.
Changing the day into night Riding winds and rain that feel so right. She waits so close and patiently, For burning suns and truth in flames To warm this room, to warm her heart, A ghost to hold her hope across the brilliant light that glows. Changing fear into this peace Holding flowers that drop to her feet. She waits so sure and innocent, For rooms of sound and joy inside To burst from open hands and silence, A ghost to heal her empty soul as she lies beneath the stars. Giving up and giving in Shaping dreams and shadows she leaves me. I wait inside this room again, For cooling hands and gentle words To feel so real, to feel her kiss, To call her name, the angel, and sit beneath her gaze once more. Changing tears into this life Prayers, like leaves, soft beneath my feet. I wait beside this deep blue pool, For the footsteps that lead me back towards her door To believe in love, to feel her kiss, A ghost to hold, a child pure, a chance to watch the sky now sleep.
I close my eyes and then I call your name, You shimmer, in this place. I close my eyes and then I hear your voice, Fall around me, in this world. Burning, this soul, child You glisten here inside my head. Turning, this soul, child Imagine all of heaven and the words I give to youLaying in your garden Tasting of your kiss Drowning in the colours here So deep your touch I think of you and slowly passes time, Beside you, hear my heart. I think of you and then I close the door, No cold image in my room. Shining, with love, child Illuminate the secrets that you hold. Holding, with love, child Heal the fallen angel in your arms.Laying in your garden Tasting of your kiss Drowning in the colours here So deep your touch Drowning in the colours here Drowning in the colours here
Stay, here beside me Lay, lay your hands upon me I open up the sky Just one kiss I give to you I swallow up the lies Just before I turn to go Stay, within the silence And say, you won't kill the hunger
Beyond this door you can see it fall Growing cold and changing faces There's a picture burning, it feels like you It holds me here and deep inside Girl, swim inside me Change, never change your mercy I kiss your flesh and crawl Just one word is all I hear I turn to face it all Taste me as I draw you near
Beyond this door you can see it fall Growing cold and changing faces There's a picture burning, it feels like you It holds me here and deep inside Lay your body down, here beside me in the lamp glow (I have never know such sorrow) I touch the spirit running, cold wind comes and falls below here (hold me close and drink these tears) I say that this is peace and I have given all for beauty (pouring out and pouring over me) I say that this is you and you are all that is tomorrow (I see the happy hour, open slowly like a flower)
As if the time was Cool and clean (again). Before your hand drags, Soft across my face. You talk in pictures, nothing more, Nothing more than this.Wake Me Still Surrounded by the love that's shining through Wake Me Still Into your hands I'm falling now And when love comes down, Spinning in your head. And when my loves comes, To cut you like a knife. Don't fear the magic, rushing, Flowing over you.Wake Me Still Surrounded by the love that's shining through Wake Me Still Into your hands I'm falling now Believe in faith strange, A joy you never know. Believe in faith strange, So sweet upon your lips. Believe in nothing more, Than what I have to give.Wake Me Still Surrounded by the love that's shining through Wake Me Still Into your hands I'm falling now Take It All Take It All Take It All
Stone and Silence
The sleeping heart, The dream of angels, The shelter of her tender heart. The child kneels, The song begins, A million voices in my head. An ashen sky, A perfect day, The softness of her gentle kiss. The pools reflect, The eyes of heaven, Bathed in light and whispers sweet. Prayers she scatters in the garden, Wrap me in her changing skin And leave me longing for just one touch. Dreams she placed in stones and silence, Cover me in peace again And bring me to her gentle hand.
Disappear and drown inside her touch. Losing breath and sinking deep, I smile now that peace has come, She is the very word of joy. Standing in the brilliant light she leaves. Giving in to passions rose, I fall again before her, She is the child and the dream. Reaching for the her shadow and her life, Waking up in angels gaze. I turn and walk beside her, She is the blessed and the shine. And in the empty hours here, I give in to the scents she leaves and burn again for one more kiss. Safe inside this hope again, I follow in the steps she pressed upon the snow and sky.
All of you comes rushing in And changing shapes of you, inside my room again. All of you comes rushing in And all I have is yesterday and your touch here. All of this is you and more, Angels laughing, words are falling down around me. Heaven comes to me and lays down all of this And you beside me, soft within my arms…
The sun is shining brightly now You are the centre of its warmth The sun is dying slowly now I'll take your tears with just one touch, just one touch love Brush this face, your fingers cool, Lift the fire burning, cut away this fear. Brush this face, your fingers cool, Take me to the place where all your dreams are real. The garden, where you lay around me, touching life, deep inside me, The wind carries me, towards this happiness…
The sun is burning brightly now You are the centre of its warmth The sun is dying slowly now I'll take your tears with just one touch Like a child, I'm a mirror and the things you give Like a child, I'm a mirror and the things you give Just one touch
THE PERFECT STAR
Resurrected by her hand
And by the glow of all she leaves here.
Resurrected by her heart
And gentle days she lies with me.
No more fear, no heaven brighter,
Held within with her arms and comfort,
Warming me in pools of tears that ripple round my flesh.
Coloured by the sound of whispers
And open doors that lead me back to another perfect soul.
Coloured by the things she gives me
Caressed by joy and prayers she places down softly.
Close my eyes, close my world,
Ashen birds will bring me soft towards her,
Filling me with perfect stars that shine upon this mortal coil.
Forever is the flame that burns within,
Take me to another God,
Take me to another world.
Forever is the kiss that burns me,
Given to another child,
Given to her holy hour.
The Shining Heart
Against all time, Against ripples in the water and the taste upon my lips, Pictures of you fall soft across my feet, Gracing paths of sand and rain, And laying hope to all I dream. Against the stains, Of these tomorrow's and of the flesh that covers me, Silence falls inside my heart, Grabbing angels sent by God, Falling in this bliss and warmth. Slain soft against the pools of you, Of days of wonder and shining hearts you leave. Brightened by stars, The aspect of your embers burn, Glowing in the hands of change, Buried in my velvet heart.
The Sun and The Moon
October girl, her brilliant colour, rushing water over me. In the silence, in the wonder, Beating hearts for all to see and feel. Pure girl and the tears I kiss away, I drink so slowly now.
Time dies, in the corner of my room She shines, beneath the sun and moon She lies, heaven raining over me Delight This dizzy girl, her hand caresses, sublime touch and subtle days. In the passion, in the fury, Taste her flesh and slowly fade away. Pure girl and the flowers on her eyes, I see right throught them now.
Time dies, in the corner of my room She shines, beneath the sun and moon She lies, heaven raining over me Delight October girl, her body's burning, turning like the night before, In the laughter, in the city, Changing shapes and crawling at my feet. Pure girl and the madness I have found, I pour it over me.
Time dies, in the corner of my room She shines, beneath the sun and moon She lies, heaven raining over me Delight
The Tears of Christ
Fall awaits and joins in change, It lies within the room of good, caressed by sounds of angels. Ringing life and boughs of light, It cuts the flesh and warms the blood and all that calls forgiveness. Fall becomes the colours drawn, And changes fear within it's own, burnt upon the pyre. Shallow breathes and shades of God, Return the gift and let's me grieve and taste again the tears of Christ. In memories and broken stones, I live again and learn to crawl, guided by the song of silence. Purity and dreams of this, Now is the blood that courses on and pours from wounds of open hearts. Standing still and taking in, I bathe before the mirrored goddess, naked and alone. Hoping here in heavens lathe, Becoming one, becoming whole and drinking in the tears of Christ.
Towards the gates and down the steps, Of slate and black, of darkness call, Elysia lies in summers heat and in the winter snow. The place of sadness and of songs, Where echoes fall upon the silence, And in the hearts of those who dwell near. Towards the gates and down the steps, The asp has kissed the flesh and soul, And lies besides the body's fortune and all that is to know. This place of ghosts and empty lives, The cask of whispers, now full to God, The water for the growing flower placed will passion and with care. I embrace the chill and walk beyond the names engraved, Yet remember all their lives and the stories of their change, I sanctify in my own mind the psyche and the fire. Enveloped in the raising warmth, My arms wrap tight around this pyre, I am the very thing I fear, the shedding night, the dying sun, The time of raining sand and wind.
Walking on the Wire
I see it all and crystal days, I hold it and the fire. Between the god and bitter ways, I feed it, this desire. So many nights alone like this, I'm walking on the wire. So many nights and joy like this, I'm walking on the wire. With her kiss, I am not the same, warm like Heaven, All is stranger still, she is this and this is mercy. I see it's face upon the wall, it's pity and the pyre. The burning stars, they mock my fall, I need it, deep inside. So many ways and songs like this, I give in to higher. With her taste, I am whole again and the savior, No more empty here, pure within and the power.
Like the rain that's in my hand Comes the shape and what she says, In the pictures that I see, She is bursting flowers. I hear a voice in every room; it's laughter and its cry. The memories all come too soon, it's comfort I require. So many days, they fill with bliss, I give in to her higher. With her touch, I believe again and drown in beauty. With this Jesus blood, She is this and this is holy
Like the rain that's in my hand Comes the shape and what she says, In the pictures that I see, She is bursting flowers. She, like a ghost, she comes… like a ghost, she comes…
A distant sun, a stained glass canvas heart, Behind the door she's closing now, so sensual love returns. Outside the streets, the taste that's in my mouth, Buried deep beneath the leaves, the kiss of angels. And do you see, is it you, are you real…
The time it comes and cuts me up It lays with me. The dream is crawling by your side, Wednesday's child, Standing all-alone, she's full of grace See her shining (beauty) like a star. Change of season, falling slowly, Wrap you here inside of me; wrap you up when sins are joy. Feel the healing and this reason to believe, gentle words I give to you.
The time it comes and cuts me up It lays with me. The dream is crawling by your side, Wednesday's child, Standing all-alone, she's full of grace See her shining (beauty) like a star. Feel the wind, sacred moments drag you in and give you all of this. No black tears cool your burning skin, peace touches here… Just on caress upon your face, I'll give my soul to you A thousand days behind the shining light of everything you do Sublime memories, just one caress I'll give my soul to you.
Where The Angels Crash and Die
I am not the man that stood in the light, But taken by hands and led into flight. All of your words, they glisten and turn, Feeding the fire, they warm as it burns. Believing in stories that fill up the heart, Imagine a kiss that heals from the start. Dark matter flows, giving this love as it crawls and it lies, Seeking out god and heaven where angels crash and die. Pricking my skin, the thorn of delight, Carried by birds and brilliance of night. All of my fears, now seem to be calm, Buried beneath, the taste of your charm. Believing in stories that fill up the heart, Imagine a kiss that heals from the start. Dark matter flows, giving this love as it crawls and it lies, Seeking out god and heaven where angels crash and die.
Beneath the bough the leaves are stained, Windblown and placed like kisses we give And words that we whisper in each of our hearts. Beneath this heaven the stars never fade, But sleep in shadows of darkness and light And bend to the wishes of children and god. Safely pulled from fires and the rage, Sleeping in caves and the words of the sage, Walking with fragments and left by the side, Drinking in purity and the angels we tithe. Two black orchids rest upon our bed, Becoming tears that give us life And take us home to safety and to warmth. Two white birds come to your eyes, Freedom burning like some gentle fire And warms the touch of all you leave to me. Silent in your arms and in the pool, Playing in water and the words from a fool, Crawling in dreams and kisses you leave, Tasting the happiness and breath that you give. Wishes of days and sundown's tomorrow Wishes of prayers that ring through the soul Wishes of all that is seen in your eyes Wishes of flowers that fall from your sky…
