Song From Hope St. (Brooklyn, NY)

Same old lines, hope on my street
People pace, just like a broken beat
Just like a broken beat
Seven steps take me to your door
Seven steps each one a broken beat
Each one a broken beat

And there's one more hour in my day and that's alright
And there's one more hour in my day and that's alright

We step in, I see another door
This old room feels like an overcoat
Window down to people on my street
See their smiles, some wear an overcoat
Some wear an overcoat

One more hour, one more hour

 

You Know What I Want To Know

Ice in the morning
Better watch your step
There are dangerous maybes
So hard to forget

You know what I want to know
You know what I want to know
You know what I want to know
You know what I want to know

Slow down the water
Let me catch my breath
There's warmth in the fire
And the sweet smell of sweat

You know what I want to know
You know what I want to know
You know what I want to know
You know what I want to know

Ice in the water
Better watch your step
There are dangerous maybes
So hard to forget

You know what I want to know
You know what I want to know
You know what I want to know
You know what I want to know
You know what I want to know
You know what I want to know

 

Step Outside In The Morning Light

Come along in secrecy
You said I could
But I wont
Filling up with promises
Our bodies lie
But we're immune

And I thought of summer
Clears my head
And I thought of summer
Clears my head, my head

You stand alone
So delicate
I said "that's fine
It seems right"

Filling up
The day again
Our bodies tied
To the fading moon

And I thought of summer
Clears my head
And I thought of summer
Clears my head, my head

On your belly
In the sun
Looking up
To the sky
And the sky
Clears my head

So step outside in the morning light
And feel the breeze
And hold her tight

So step outside in the morning light
And feel the breeze
And hold her tight

So step outside in the morning light

 

Private Dance

The rhythm of the private dance
Will speed up
And slow down, down

 

Pale Blue Light

Another season, another silence falls
Lots of reasons, stare at the staring walls
I take away the pain, I take away the pain

Under clouds, to the stairs, takes me there

I see a new skin, fresh in a pale blue light
Warm as I sit here, close to the fireside
I take away the pain, I take away the pain

Under clouds, to the stairs, takes me there

Fresh in a pale blue light, fresh in a pale blue light
I take away the pain, I take away the pain

Water coming down, now water don't leave me
Sick of coming down with water is leaving
Water coming down, now water don't leave me
Sick of coming down with water is leaving

 

What I Ask

Pass me your hand
Show me your face
Now that the days
Run out of pace

Love, is what I ask
No less
Love, is what I ask
No less

Soften the light
Close over the door
And with the night
We'll fall to the floor

Love, is what I ask
No less
Love, is what I ask
No less

Love, is what I ask
No less
Love, is what I ask
No less

Love, is what I ask
No less
Love, is what I ask
No less

 

Strange Light In The Evening

I sit, top of stairs
Wonder if you are there
And yes, we know
These things will grow
To share desires
To take what's ours

It's then I take a walk
To order creeping under my feet
I know this dark wont shift without a breeze
Sits on the graffitied bench where lovers meet

Sinead loves Connor
Jan loves Troy
Karen loves Allen
And Stevo loves himself

Each moment takes another thought away
It's then I saw the light at the closing of the day

And that's a strange light in the evening
And that's a strange light in the evening
And that's a strange light in the evening

 

Whispers Return The Sun, Rest The Moon

London Bridge
Monday Morning
Sleepy eyed and staring down at you
I was world away
That's where I want to stay

A saving grace that breaks my silence
Lighter than a whisper in the sun
Whispers return the sun
Whispers return the sun

So come on out
And make me smile
Give me your light
Just one more time
Cause I cant find
A better cure
And I've been trying
More and more

London Bridge
Wednesday evening
Shuffling in from Wednesday afternoon
Just spent the day with you
Through different shades of blue

Star at night
Burning water
Resting for the day
Will be back soon

Whispers will rest the moon
Whispers will rest the moon

So come on out
And make me smile
Give me your light
Just one more time
Cause I cant find
A better cure
And I've been trying
More and more

So take me out
and make me smile
Give me your light
Just one more time
No I cant find
A better cure
And I've been trying
More and more
More and more

 

You And The City

Your eyes see how they shine
See how your eyes meet mine
Your eyes see how they shine see how
See how your eyes meet mine

Da da da da da da da da da, da da

City lights see how they shine
See how the lights keep time
City lights see how they shine
See how the lights keep time

It's late here
The crooked ghost is now unclear
As dark surrounds
The greater eyes rely on sound

I've forgotten what it's like
When darkness shows no sign of lights
You make it easy for me
You make it easy for me

La da da da da da da da da da

You make it easy for me...

Any time now, any time now
We'll stand out in the rain
See it all again

 

Into The Breeze

Run for the signs, lead me out of this place
For sunlight relief for change in pace
See how the time passes caught in a stare
Slow as dust moves its way through the air

Stepping into the breeze, I'm running
Kicking water downstream, I'm running
I can see where it ends, I'm running
Where I can start again, I'm running

Stare for the stare I've reason to run
The winds at my back and my work's done
Early day rise left me dazed for a while
Window down breeze blows for mile after mile

Stepping into the breeze, I'm running
Kicking water downstream, I'm running
I can see where it ends, I'm running
Where I can start again, I'm running

Oh yeah…

Stepping into the breeze, I'm running
Kicking water downstream, I'm running
I can see where it ends, I'm running
Where I can start again, I'm running

Stepping into the breeze I'm running
