‘T O D A Y   I   W A N T   Y O U   M O R E’
_ST_5248                     _ST_5248
I’M SITTING ON THE BED
YOU KEPT UNDONE THIS MORNING
I THOUGHT I WOULD FORGET
BUT YOU’RE A PICTURE WITHOUT WARNING
COLOURFUL AND GRAPHIC…
RESTING ON MY CHEST..
NOW MY THOUGHTS ARE STUCK IN TRAFFIC
AND I CAN’T GET NO REST
THE BEER ISN’T HELPING
MY FRIDGE’S A WORK OF ART
I LEFT THE ICE CREAM MELTING
TOGETHER WITH MY HEART
I’M FEELING KIND OF LONELY
I’M ONLY HAPPY WHEN I’M SAD
YOU’RE NOT MY ONE AND ONLY
BUT I’M MISSING YOU SO BAD
IT’S LIKE I’VE KNOWN YOU LONGER
AND WE’VE BEEN HERE BEFORE
I’VE HAD DAYS WHEN I’M STRONGER
BUT TODAY I WANT YOU MORE
YOU’RE A FANTASY WITH FUTURE
SECRETLY EXPOSED,
TO MY WOUNDS, A SUTURE,
A DOOR THAT’S NEVER CLOSED.

New record ‘BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY’ out APRIL 13th

OH HELP ME, LORD
I’M TOO AFRAID TO TAKE A RISK
I FIND IT EASIER
TO PLAY THIS PAIN,
OVER AND OVER,
LIKE A BROKEN DISC.
HELP ME, MY FRIEND,
I’M TOO SCARED OF REJECTION
I FIND IT EASIER
PRETENDING,
OVER AND OVER,
THAT I DON’T NEED YOUR AFFECTION.
PLEASE FORGIVE ME, HONEY
FOR I NEVER FOUND LIFE FUNNY
IN ITS CRAZY TURNS
I ALWAYS LOOKED FOR AN ESCAPE,
FOR LESSONS THAT I’D LEARN
BUT I DID IT FOR THE MONEY,
AND I LEFT MY SOUL TO BURN…
PLEASE FORGIVE ME, FATHER
FOR I’VE NEVER HAD ANOTHER
HAPPY HEART TO LEND…
I NEVER UNDERSTOOD THIS WORLD,
HOW LOVERS CAME AND WENT,
AND I’D STILL RATHER
COUNT THE LONELY HOURS THAT IVE SPENT.
OH HELP ME, DARLING,
I FIND SALVATION IN MY SIN
IT WOULD BE EASIER
TO CHANGE ME
IF I HAD NO SCARS WITHIN.
I SEE NOW, DARLING,
THERE’S NOTHING YOU CAN DO
WE ARE ALL EASIER
TO PUNISH
IF WE HAVE CHEATED ON THE TRUTH.
SO FORGIVE ME, LOVE
FOR LEAVING YOU BEHIND,
YOU NEVER SEEMED TO MIND,
I ALWAYS KNEW
A LOVE LIKE YOURS
WAS OUT OF LINE
