Waiting round the corner where the children play with their friends in the springtime Lacing up your shoes for to keep the icy water from entering It's cold outside It's cold Pleading with your father just to hope to change his mind on something Useless but he doesn't so you go on your own to the woods in the night time You take your time, then you lead me down To the earth Lay with me tonight, then we'll surely last Eternity Waiting for your eyes to open with the light of the morning Glisten as the dew from the blades intrude on the blue sky yawning It's light outside It's light Breathing exudes from the coldest earth and your icy body Nothing but still you spent your days in the rolling springtime You take your time, then you lead me down To the earth Lay with me tonight, then we'll surely last Eternity

Walk around, I know your feet are weary now Talk about, your throat's too dry to speak aloud Your feet are broken, you make no sound No trace can be found Sniff around, the air you breathe is burning now Close your eyes, the hour is red as embers now Your clothes they pull you to the ground The fall broke your crown Walk around I know your feet are weary now Talk about your throat's too dry to speak aloud Your body's broken, you make no sound No trace can be found

Days full of rain Sky's coming down again I get so tired of these same old blues Same old song Baby it won't be long For I be tying on Flyin' shoes Flyin' shoes 'Til I be tying on My flyin' shoes Spring only sighed Summer had to be satisfied Fall is a feeling you just can't lose I'd like to stay Maybe watch a winter day Turn the green water White and blue Flyin' shoes For I be tying on My flyin' shoes Bread moon Forever sets too soon Being alone is all the hills can do Alone and then Her silver sails again And they will follow in Their flyin' shoes Flyin' shoes And they will follow in Their flyin' shoes Days full of rain Sky's coming down again I get so tired of these same old blues Same old song Baby it won't be long For I be tying on Flyin' shoes Flyin' shoes 'Til I be tying on My flyin' shoes

I knew a girl who said "I love you for the way you treat me" She didn't care that it was all she ever said I said "it's fine so long as you don't mind me weeping Every time you lay down your precious head" Don't be so slow sleeping I'll be there with you this evening Don't be so slow moving I can't bear the thought of losing you I knew well by the time she said she was leaving I was just waiting for her to ring She said "it's fine it's fine 'cos I'm not the one you're needing It's just someone who likes the way you sing" Don't be so slow sleeping I'll be there with you this evening Don't be so slow moving I can't bear the thought of losing you There'll be no surprise When you flee No spanish boots for me Don't be so slow sleeping I'll be there for you this evening Don't be so slow moving I can't bear the thought of losing Don't be so slow sleeping I'll be there for you this evening Don't be so slow moving I can't bear the thought of losing you

Are you with me now? I'm working like a mule I'm pulling slow, on a rainy black road With a load I can barely feel If you could come to me If you take away my mind If you could fill me up like an empty cup That would be fine That would be fine La la la la, la la la la No turquoise jewellery now Don't bury me with silver, don't bury me in gold When I die - the earth as my bride - Give me a dark and shady home So are you with me now? I'm working like a mule Eventually I'll be set free That would be fine That would be fine La la la la, la la la la

They stayed up late Had one more dance He lost his coat in a game of chance He took her hand And leaned in close So she could hear Only you can save me now She looked away And moved her head It's getting late Only you can save me now You can save me now Never mind what the clock might say It's only early in the day She hurried off And he remained He had to cry Only you can save me now You can save me now I wait forever for you to come along I wait a lifetime for you to settle down I wake up crying to hear the sound Only you can save me now You can save me now

Meet me in the morning, 56th and Wabasha Meet me in the morning, 56th and Wabasha Honey, we could be in Kansas By time the snow begins to thaw They say the darkest hour is right before the dawn They say the darkest hour is right before the dawn But you wouldn’t know it by me Every day’s been darkness since you been gone Little rooster crowin’, there must be something on his mind Little rooster crowin’, there must be something on his mind Well, I feel just like that rooster Honey, ya treat me so unkind The birds are flyin’ low babe, honey I feel so exposed Well, the birds are flyin’ low babe, honey I feel so exposed Well now, I ain’t got any matches And the station doors are closed Well, I struggled through barbed wire, felt the hail fall from above Well, I struggled through barbed wire, felt the hail fall from above Well, you know I even outran bread dogs Honey, you know I’ve earned your love Look at the sun sinkin’ like a ship Look at the sun sinkin’ like a ship Ain’t that just like my heart, babe When you kissed my lips?

It's been raining real hard this summer Everyone's staying indoors this summer Every trace is being washed away That they were here and they will still remain It's hot in Palestine this summer Red roads wind their way through Gaza Turn on your TV this summer Local news may be a spot of weather But BBC, has something slipped your mind? There's no account of a little genocide It's hot in Palestine this summer Red roads wind their way through Gaza But I guess it's all right Israel take aim with care So just sit tight While smoke, dust, murder and bombs fill the air It's hot in Palestine this summer Red roads wind their way through Gaza It's hot in Palestine this summer Red roads wind their way through Gaza It's hot in Palestine this summer The red, red roads they wind their way through Gaza

Well it's true what they say Lightning really does turn the night into day Only for a while And it's true what they say Loving in your life can only get in the way Even for a while Tell me when will you be in my arms again Tell me when will you be in my arms again Tell me when will you be in my arms again Tell me when will you be in my arms again Well it's true what they say Loving in your life can only get in the way Even for a while And it's true what they say Lightning really does turn the night into day Only for a while Tell me when will you be in my arms again Tell me when will you be in my arms again Tell me when will you be in my arms again Tell me when will you be in my arms again

I knew the cold wind here was blowing Through the corners of your eyes I saw a distant sense of loathing More pronounced than real lies I touched your hand to see it moving Out of reach from my side And thought it strange to hear you crooning But you didn't want me ...to see you with your face so low on the surface water now And then I'd hear you call my name just to tell me something clear I never meant to get so high right now I never meant to get so high right now On you A car pulled over rain was falling From above and below I heard the damned well near calling But it was more because of you... ...and all the things you made me do in the act of only trying - - to please you I knew I'd never make it back I'd never be the same I only meant to get so high right now I never meant to get so high right now With you I knew the cold wind here was blowing

Turn down the lights, Turn down the bed, Turn down these voices, Inside my head Lay down with me, Tell me no lies, Just hold me close, Don't patronize me [x2] Cause I can't make you love me If you don't, You can't make your heart feel Something it won't, Here in the dark, These final hours I will lay down my heart And I feel the power But you don't, No you don't Cause I can't make you love me, If you don't [x2] No, you won't I'll close my eyes, No, I won't see The love you don't feel, When you're holding me Morning will come, And I'll do what's right Just give me till then To give up this fight And I will give up this fight... Cause I can't make you love me if you don't I can't make your heart feel, Something it won't, Here in the dark These final hours I will lay down my heart And I feel the power But you don't, No you don't I can't make you love me if you don't If you don't, No you, no you won't

Across the evening sky all the birds are leaving But how can they know it's time for them to go? Before the winter fire, I will still be dreaming I have no thought of time For who knows where the time goes? Who knows where the time goes? Sad deserted shore, your fickle friends are leaving Ah, but then you know it's time for them to go But I will still be here, I have no thought of leaving I do not count the time For who knows where the time goes? Who knows where the time goes? And I am not alone while my love is near me I know it will be so until it's time to go So come the storms of winter and then the birds in spring again I have no fear of time For who knows how my love grows? And who knows where the time goes?
