WITHOUT YOU

Crazy
Oh oh
Hot nights
In the desert sand
I’m going insane
Oh oh
I gotta find you
Anyway I can
Because I need you

To watch me stumble
And make me fall
Are you out there
Oh oh
Black magic
Come heed my call

 

I love you
I lost you
Can’t find my way without you
I love you
I lost you
There’s no way back without you

I got no fear and I got no doubt
I want you
To tear my heart out
I love you
I lost you
And I can’t live without you

IT DOESN’T TAKE MUCH

Foolish foolish am I
To your breath in my ear
Whispered perfectly
Words I want to hear
I know it’s just a ploy

Crazy crazy am I
Wanting to believe
Whispered perfectly
Words of sweet deceit
Winding me up like a top
Or a dime-store toy

To have your way with me
Is all in what you say to me
And when I’m down
And when I’m blue
It only takes a few words
No it doesn’t take much
No it doesn’t take much

Empty empty am I
Holding on to you
On to promises
Paper-thin untrue
Want to become
The dreams I thought I knew

I want to block them out
Expose your truths
I know exactly what you do
But my loneliness falls prey
To the gentle words you say

OUT OF MY MIND

Zooming past the Taj Mahal
Looking for you
I go right
I go left
I go crazy

Racing to the record store
What can I do
I go white
I go red
I go paisley

Dancing alone in my room
Thinking of you
If I smile
Will you know
What I’m asking

Wearing the Emperor’s clothes
Dreaming of you
If we kiss
Will it be everlasting

Only you can wake me
Only you can shake me
Only you can rock me
Out of my mind
And it’s all right

Crawling on my hands and knees
Thinking of you
I go left
I go right
I go crazy

Cake with Marie Antoinette
Head on a plate
I can’t eat
I can’t sleep
I’m so spacey

It’s the way you move me
And it’s all I need
To be satisfied
Don’t know what I’m doing
But I couldn’t stop
Even if I tried

 

Dancing alone in my room
Thinking of you
If I smile
Will you know
What I’m asking

Standing at the wishing well
Wishing for you
If we kiss
Will it be everlasting

YOU WOULDN’T KNOW HOW

Day in and day out from way way down
Promise me how sweet the sound
Imagine that I answer back
You wouldn’t know how

Day in and day out a fall from grace
Promise me I’ll see your face
Imagine that coming back
You wouldn’t know how

Now I cross the line
Falling through the looking glass of time
Couldn’t know a world
Before you were mine
I wouldn’t know how

Day in and day out you stand apart
You sail the star you drink the dark
You wouldn’t know how to break my heart
You wouldn’t know how

You wouldn’t know how to spill the wine
You wouldn’t know how to change my mind
You wouldn’t know how to cast the stone
You wouldn’t know how

FADE AWAY

Charcoal streaked sky
Neon lights burning dry
I wait in the night
As the fiends pass me by

And I know you know better

Fade away
Fade away to the other side
Cross that line
Claim what’s mine
Claim what’s right

So now you return
Clutching heart lessons learned
Breezy fait accompli
You can’t have what’s left of me

And I know I know better

Fade away
Fade away into the black
Fade away
Fade away
No you can’t come back

Lost time
Telling me you’re too late
Feel the finality of your mistake
See how I won’t bend and I won’t break
You need to fade away

And I know I know better

Fade away
Fade away forever more
Day by day
Straight ahead
I win the war of

Lost time
Telling me you’re too late
Feel the finality of your mistake
Your false reality will be erased
As you fade away
