    Healing Lyrics VI (Temptations)

    Let's start with a little old Simon and Garfunkel

    For Vilji, Whenever I May Find Her

    What I dream I had:
    Pressed in organdy;
    Clothed in crinoline of smoky Burgundy;
    Softer than the rain.
    I wandered empty streets
    Down past the shop displays.
    I heard cathedral bells
    Tripping down the alley ways,
    As I walked on.

    And when you ran to me
    Your cheeks flushed with the night.
    We walked on frosted fields of juniper and lamplight,
    I held your hand.
    And when I awoke and felt you warm and near,
    I kissed your honey hair with my grateful tears.
    Boom! Boom!
    Waaahahahahaha!

    wish I could hug you, but here's a big
    {{{{smooch and (((hug)))}}}}
    from me.

    Following the silent hedges
    Needing some
    Other kind of madness
    Looking into purple eyes
    Sadness at the corners
    Works of art with a minimum of steel

    Pure sensation
    The beautiful down grade
    Going to hell again
    Going to hell again

    Self confidence leaks
    From a thousand wounds
    Faults of civilization
    Burning the private paradise of dreams
    Minus hands of the electric clock
    Clock....
    Clock......
    Clock........

    What happens when the intoxication of success has evaporated?

    Following the silent hedges
    Following the silent hedges
    Boom! Boom!
    Waaahahahahaha!

    Re: Healing Lyrics VI (Temptations)

    Life is rich, but it's way too short
    You make a lot of money, but you just want more
    I don't need the pain right here in my heart
    But I hate every minute when we're so far apart

    It was love in a minute, it was love in a flash
    It brings me no pleasure, just a stab in the back
    It brings me no comfort, it brings me no peace
    A weight on my shoulder, it's a fatal disease

    So don't tear me up
    I don't ever wanna see your picture again
    And don't poison my blood
    I don't ever wanna see your face here no more

    Gonna finish it quick, gonna finish it clean
    Don't wanna be bitter. I don't wanna be mean
    I feel like we're driving down a dead-end street
    I've come so far I wanna crash the car
    I wanna land right on my feet

    I said don't tear me up
    I don't ever wanna see your picture again
    I said don't tear me up
    I don't ever wanna see your face here no more

    But I dream of you constantly, you'll be my angel of light
    And in the dark rooms of sleeplessness
    You'll be my lover each night

    Life is a bitch, it's way too short
    Unlike a politician it just can't be bought
    Think about the tenderness, and think about the craziness
    And if you ever wanna hate me come and
    Stick a knife right in my chest

    I said don't tear me up
    I don't ever wanna see your picture again
    I said don't tear me up
    I don't ever wanna see your face here no more

    I said don't tear me up
    I said don't tear me up
    I said don't poison my blood
    I don't ever wanna see your picture again

    Re: Healing Lyrics VI (Temptations)

    The rich declare themselves poor.
    And most of us are not sure
    if we have too much,
    but we'll take our chances,
    because god stopped keeping score.
    I guess somewhere along the way,
    he must have let us all out to play.
    Turned his back, and all god's children
    crept out the back door.

    And it's hard to love,

    when there's so much to hate.
    Hanging on to hope
    when there is no hope to speak of.
    And the wounded skies above

    say it's much too late.
    Well maybe we should all be praying for time.

    These are the days of the empty hand.
    Oh you hold on to what you can.
    And charity is a coat you wear

    twice a year.

    This is the year of the guilty man.
    Your television takes a stand.
    And you find that what was over there

    is over here.

    So you scream from behind your door
    say, "What's mine is mine, and not yours.
    I may have too much, but I'll take my chances
    because god stopped keeping score."
    And you cling to the things they sold you.
    Did you cover your eyes when they told you

    That he can't come back,
    because he has no children

    to come back for.

    It's hard to love

    when there's so much to hate.
    Hanging on to hope

    when there is no hope to speak of.
    And the wounded skies above

    say it's much too late.
    so maybe we should all

    be praying for time.

    You surely are a truly gifted kid
    But you're only good as
    The last great thing you did
    And where've you been since then
    Did the schedule get you down
    I hear you've got a new girlfriend
    How's the wife taking it ?

    If it's uphill all the way you should be used to it by now

    You must know me, Father it's your son
    And I know that you are proud of everything I've done
    But it's the wonders I perform,
    Pulling rabbits out of hats
    When sometimes I'd prefer
    Simply to wear them

    If it's uphill all the way you should be used to it and say
    My back is broad enough sir to take the strain and it's

    Hello mother, it's your son and aren't you proud, of all I've done
    But I'm turkey hungry, I'm chicken free, and I can't breakdance on your knee
    But it's "stay right there son, baby do", while I is itchin' for something new
    So watch me hawkeye and understand the force of will, the sleight of hand
    Movin' the river, I'm turkey hungry, I'm chicken free and I can't breakdance on your knee
    Movin' the river, bucket by spoon, and do you think that they'll like me when they learn what I o

    Movin' the river, money for jam, and it takes such an effort to stay where I am...

    Carnival
    the wheels fly and the colors spin.
    Through alcohol
    Red wine that punctures the skin.
    Face to face,
    In a dry and waterless place.


    Walk on by,
    Walk on through.
    So sad to beseige your love so head on.
    Stay this time,
    Stay tonight in a lie.
    I'm only asking but I...
    I think you know.
    Come on take me away,
    Come on take me away
    Come on take me home.
    Home again.


    And if the mountains should crumble,
    Or disappear into the sea
    Not a tear, no not I.


    Stay in this time,
    Stay tonight in a lie.
    Ever after, this love in time,
    and if you save your love,
    save it all.

    Re: Healing Lyrics VI (Temptations)

    Jackie left on a cold, dark night
    telling me he'd be home.
    Sailed the seas for a hundred years
    leaving me all alone.
    And I've been dead for twenty years,
    I've been washing the sand
    with my ghostly tears,
    searching the shores
    for my Jackie-oh.

    I remember the day the young men came,
    they said, "your Jackie's gone,
    we got lost in the rain."
    And I ran to the beach,
    and laid me down.
    "You're all wrong", I said
    and they stared at the sand.
    "That man knows that sea
    like the back of his hand.
    He'll be back some time,
    laughing at you."

    And I've been waiting
    all this time
    for my man to come
    take his hand in mine,
    and lead me away
    to unseen shores.
    I've been washing the sand
    with my salty tears.
    Searching the shore
    for these long years.
    And I'll walk the seas
    forever more.
    'till I find my Jackie oh.
    till I find my Jackie oh.
    till I find my Jackie-ohhhh.

    They cried the tears, they shed the fears
    Up and down the land
    They stole guitars or used guitars
    So the tape would understand
    Without even the slightest hope of a 1000 sales
    Just as if, as if there was

    Hitsville in U.K.
    I know the boy was all alone

    Til the Hitsville hit U.K.

    They say true talent

    Will allways emerge in time
    When lightening hits small wonder
    Its fast rough factory trade
    No expense accounts, or lunch discounts
    Or hypeing up the charts
    The band went in,

    And knocked 'em dead,
    in two minutes 59
    No slimy deals, with smarmy eels
    In Hitsville U.K.
    Lets shake and say, we'll operate

    In Hitsville U.K.
    I know the girl felt all alone
    Till the Hitsville hit U.K.

    The mutants, creeps and musclemen
    Are shaking like a leaf
    It blows a hole in the radio
    When it hasnt sounded good all week
    A mike'n boom, in your living room - in Hitsville U.K.
    No consumer trials, or A.O.R., in Hitsville U.K.
    Now the boys and girls are not alone
    Now the
    Hitsville's hit U.K.

    I know the boys and girls are not alone
    Now the Hitsville hit U.K.
    Boom! Boom!
    Waaahahahahaha!

    Re: Healing Lyrics VI (Temptations)

    Last night, I waved goodbye, now it seems years
    I'm back in the city, where nothin' is clear
    But thoughts of me, holdin' you, bringin' us near

    CHORUS
    And tell me
    When will our eyes meet?
    When can I touch you?
    When will this strong yearnin' end?
    And when will I hold you again?

    Time in New England, took me away
    Long rocky beaches and you by the bay
    We started a story whose end must now wait

    CHORUS

    I feel the change comin', I feel the wind blow
    I feel brave and daring!, I feel my blood flow, oh
    With you I could bring out all the love that I have
    With you there's a heaven, so earth ain't so bad
    ...whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable if anything is excellent or praiseworthy think about such things."

    Have you hugged your penguin today?

    I saw two shooting stars last night
    I wished on them, but they were only sattelites
    It's wrong to wish on space hardware
    I wish, I wish, I wish you cared.

    I don't want to change the world
    I'm not looking for a new England
    Just looking for another girl
    Boom! Boom!
    Waaahahahahaha!

    On the blind side and down the back ways
    The roots of sadness crawl,
    When you can't get what you need
    You feel like taking a torch to it all

    All the sweet talk makes a bitter man
    You can feel the darkness rise
    Sometimes you don't know what you're fighting for
    You don't know who it is you despise.

    I am the Halleluiah Man
    Break all the rules I'm the King of fools
    I'm the renegade in this greytown
    And I'll do anything to bring a government down
    I am the Halleluiah Man
    Yes my friends I've been born again
    I'm the black sheep who while shepherds sleep
    Will do anything to bring a government down

    In a coat of a thousand colours
    and a star spangled Cadillac
    He picked up a rodeo queen
    with whiplash marks all over his back

    When dreams don't become their people
    People become their dreams
    He didn't understand at the time
    But now he knows exactly what it means

    I am the Halleluiah Man
    Break all the rules I'm the King of fools
    I'm the renegade in this greytown
    And I'll do anything to bring a government down
    I am the Halleluiah Man
    Yes my friends I've been born again
    I'm the black sheep who while shepherds sleep
    Will do anything to bring a government down

    They said watch out boy be careful where you tread
    You're throwing away all that beautiful bread
    He slept outside until the world opened up
    They've got to understand he's a Halleluiah Man

    He says I am the Halleluiah Man
    And I'll do anything to bring a government down

    He built himself a prison
    He knew he had to escape
    Some worlds are held together by steel
    Some worlds are held together by sellotape

    He was drifting through the sharks teeth
    He always paid his dues
    When something told him he had nothing
    That's when he knew he had nothing to lose

    He says
    I am the Halleluiah Man
    Break all the rules I'm the King of fools
    I'm the renegade in this greytown
    And I'll do anything to bring a government down
    I am the Halleluiah Man
    Yes my friends I've been born again
    I'm the black sheep who while shepherds sleep
    Will do anything to bring a government down

    When dreams don't become their people
    People become their dreams

    Spinning a compass

    to choose your way

    You can run

    you can dive

    you can stand

    and you can soar

    whichever way

    you can be sure


    that the shadows are on your side

    as soon as the lights go down

    In the darkest place you can hide

    you belong to the hands of the night
    ...whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable if anything is excellent or praiseworthy think about such things."

    Sons of the silent age
    Stand on platforms blank looks with no books.
    Sit in back rows of city limits
    Coming and going on easy terms.
    Sons of the silent age
    Pace their rooms like a cell's dimension
    Rise for a year or two then make war
    Search through their one-inch thoughts
    Then decide it couldn't be done.

    Baby, I'll never let you go
    All I see is all I know
    Let's take another way down
    Baby, I won't ever let you down
    I can't stand another sound
    Let's find another way in.

    Sons of the silent age
    Listen to tracks by Sam Therapy and King Dice
    Sons of the silent age
    Pick up in bars but cry only once
    Sons of the silent age
    Make love only once but dream and dream
    They don't walk they just glide in and out of life
    They never die, they just go to sleep one day

    Baby, I'll never let you go
    All I see is all I know
    Let's take another way down.
    Baby, baby, baby I won't ever let you down
    I can't stand another sound
    Let's find another way in
    Boom! Boom!
    Waaahahahahaha!

    I'm bored

    Re: Healing Lyrics VI (Temptations)

    and you
    still won't hear me.
    Don't want your hand this time,
    I'll save myself.
    Maybe I'll wake up for once.
    Not tormented daily
    defeated by you.
    Just when I thought
    I'd reached the bottom
    I'm dying again.

    I'm going under.
    drowning in you.
    I'm falling forever.
    I've got to break through.
    I'm going under.

    Blurring and stirring
    the truth and the lies.
    so I don't know what's real and what's not.
    Always confusing the thoughts in my head.
    so I can't trust myself anymore.

    I'm going under
    drowning in you.
    I'm falling forever..

    Can't beat that Kirsty MaColl / via Billy Bragg metaphore lyric style, especially seeing as she's married to Steve lilywhite, one of the best 80's producer's ever! New England is actually a suburb of Peterborough,England, Bragg's hometown ( where incidentally i spent a large proportion of my youth! ). Awesome choice!
