Track Name: The Promise
There’s a thought
Then there’s a breath
Then there’s a promise made
And that’s all that’s left
Sometimes when the thought fades

That voice I heard alone:
Was it only my own?

Because the promise
that was held out for me
It was always more than I did receive
And yet I still believe
I still believe

What I feel
Is real
But you don’t care
Desire is true
But it is never fair

I still believe in you
I want you to come true

But the promise
That you held out to me
It was always more
Than I did receive
And yet I still believe
I know I shouldn’t
But I still believe

*

If the gods
could see you now
They’d take you for their own
Is that why you hide?
Locked away all alone?

I still believe in love
Those angels up above

But the promise
That they sang out to me
It was always more
Than I did receive
And yet I still believe
I still believe
Track Name: Mme de Sade
The chateau’s walls, they
are made of stone-faced lies
while I am only made of flesh & bone
At night the hallways
they ring with lovers cries
while i lie alone

The lovers come over
the lovers come by
Over & over
none of them mine

And all around the town they know,
they say there goes
Madame de Sade
All around the town they know
they say there goes
Madame de Sade
Madame de Sade
Madame de Sade

Faithful,
so faithful
to you
all this time
But what am i
to do this time
& where am i to go?

When all around the town they know
they say there goes
Madame de Sade
All around the town they know
they say there goes
the Bride to be
abused by he
they all agree
they want to see
the fool i’ve been
the fool i’ll be
for you

And all around the town they know
they say there goes
Madame de Sade
All around the town they know
they say there goes
Madame de Sade
Madame de Sade
Madame de sade

Track Name: You Dont Understand Our Love
You don’t understand our love
You don’t understand our love
Our Love is beautiful
It could be magical
You don’t understand our love

Our spirits are entwined
No not our bodies but our minds
She wants me oh so much
that we don’t need to touch
You don’t understand our love

You should be happy for me
Can’t you see how she adores me?
She may not leave with me
or want to sleep with me
but you don’t understand our love

We may not spend much time together
She may not kiss me much, if ever
She may just hold my hand
You wouldn’t understand
You don’t understand our love

And I don’t understand it either
If I was wise then I would leave her
But when she holds my hand,
what’s there to understand
You don’t understand our love
Track Name: I Think Of You Quite Often
I think of you quite often
I think of you quite a lot
I wonder what you’re doing
I think of you quite often
on & off

I miss you
in the mornings
& often
late at night
It gets so very cold then
I miss you as I’m turning out the light
Of course I do
Of course I do

You think of me,
I know, sometimes
You wonder should you call
But every time you try to
your voice breaks down,
you find that you can’t talk
Of course you do
Of course you do

After all, it’s only been a while
And you’re still my special one
But when you find another
then they will be the one
& the wonder that once was us
will be gone
Of course it will
Of course it will
Of course it will

*

And when we find another
then they will be the one
& the glory that once was us will be gone
Of course it will
Of course it will
I think of you
quite often,
I do

Track Name: Sirens
Sirens
Sing to me
Sirens
Here with me
Sirens
Muses
Of ancient Greece

Muses
Dazzle me
Beauty
Is all I see
Sirens
Sirens
Sing so sweet

Sirens
Come for me
Sirens
In my street
My breath
My death
My body

Track Name: Mars & Mercury
You & Me
Mars & Mercury
Mars & Mercury
You & Me

The shoreline & the sea
The fire amongst the trees
You & Me

There’s times that we
could almost meet:
This time next year,
maybe

You & Me
Two hearts & Destiny
As far away as we can be
& still be

Mars & Mercury

Track Name: White Girl
There’s a new sun coming up,
sat upon my windowsill
I wish sometimes it would just shut up
I don’t know if it will

There’s a new hope come to town
a pretty angel smiling down
all this wonder hanging round,
oppressing me..

Nothing ever seems to go my way
Something always breaks the plans i make
Today the same as yesterday
Except for you
Except for you

Little thing, you are something
that i’ve never seen before
No matter how i partake of you
i still must have some more

I lick the sweat upon your brow
I love your pussy in my mouth
I need you much more now than ever

Nothing ever seems to go my way
I always seem to make the same mistakes
And I’ve just dreamed my life away
Dreamed of you
Dreamed of you

White Girl
White Girl

Nothing ever seems to go my way
Sometimes i feel i’ve wasted all my days
But when i see you dance & play
I love you
I love you

White Girl
White Girl
White Girl

Track Name: Farewell Blues
Here we are
the bathroom of your place
Here we are
the bathroom of your place
If someone
should find us crying
won't you hide
my face?

I've been crying anyway now
crying in the street
been crying anyway now
crying in the street
wearing shades
so nobody can see
No shoes
No shoes
upon
my feet

It shouldn't matter now
your body's by another mans
It doesn't matter now
your body's by another mans
And my body
is just a body
And my hands
are only hands

When he asks you
it will be good for you to say
When he asks you
it will be good for you to say
you didn't lay with me
but won't you lay
with me
I've come
such a
long way

*

It's time to go now
won't you put me on the plane
I have to go now
won't you put me on the plane
Or drive me
down the harbour
in
the rain
