DARLING OF THE AFTERGLOW

 

 

THE ROAD

 

Channeling a velvet smile

It’s all I can take with me

I turn to wipe the windows clean

In reverse it all feels so free

The dust is getting thicker . .

The light is getting dimmer . .

Did I have to let this go?

I remember

I remember

Now I’m driving down this open palm

Burning up the back of my hand

Tracing all the things I never did

All the things that I never said

As a hawk's deflected path

Meets the end within another end

As two mirrors guide the form

Let's go on and on once more

When there's nothing left to break

In a gaze within another gaze

Bending backwards through soft eyes

Let’s go on and on and on next time

I couldn’t take the long way home

Guess that I was frightened

Thought that I could face this storm

I’m only good when sun is shining

Now there's thunder and there's lightning

Should I put it down to timing?

That I had to let this go

Do you regret it?

I regret it

Now I’m driving down this lonely road

There’s no way that I can turn back

Cause I know it hurt to see me go

There’s no way that you’ll take me back

Open sky with no landmark

Making progress and yet nothing’s changing

As two mirrors guide the form

Let's go on and on and on once more

When there's nothing left to break

In a gaze within another gaze

Bending backwards through soft eyes

Let's go on and on next time

 

 

 

WHAT IS IT?

 

More free than we realize

Two worlds at once collide

When you move to me and lean your body nearer

I can feel it in the air, could not feel it any clearer

What is it that always walks behind you?

Silhouettes of you and I together. . .

But what is it that always seems to follow you?

The taste of your mortal state

Disguised as a new landscape

Leave me it cannot, nor can I remove me

I can feel it in the air, could not feel it any clearer

What is it that always walks behind you?

Silhouettes of you and I together. . .

But what is it that always seems to follow you?

 

 

 

RICOCHET

 

A fingertip on the domino

How does it feel, the calm before the storm

So won't you tell me straight

Or not at all

Swallow your pride

Live for the fall

Let me hear it from your mouth

Silver lightning strike me down

Is this what I've been living without?

Over and over every word ricochets

Over and over

Ricochet

Ricochet

Over and over in my mind I replay

Over and over

Ricochet

Ricochet

Over and over

Over and over

Over and over

Your whispers echo from the ceiling

They're all I hear

Within these four walls

So won't you tell me straight

Or not at all

Swallow your pride

Live for the fall

Let me hear it from your mouth

Silver lightning strike me down

Is this what I've been living without?

Over and over every word ricochets

Over and over

Ricochet

Ricochet

Over and over in my mind I replay

Over and over

Ricochet

Ricochet

Over and over

Over and over

Over and over

 

 

 

AFTERGLOW

 

In the light I see her eyes

I see her eyes

I see her eyes

The Queen of Angels towers tall made of stone

If I could I'd let her know

I'd let her know

I’d let her know

To play it safe is not to play at all

Here as I lay like a little child in your arms

Painting the path

Bleeding the ink

Here in the hall of a million dollars burning bright

Lighting the way

Barring the sun

In the void I know her touch

I know her touch

I know this touch

The warmth she brings

Just when I need it most

If I could I'd let her know

I'd let her know

I'd let her know

My deepest truth is not to walk alone

Hey little love you're the darling of the afterglow

Take what you want

Take what you need

Here in the hall of a million doves burning bright

Lighting the way

Barring the sun

Hey little love in the evening when you're crawling back

Take what you want

Take what you need

 

 

 

OPEN DOORS

 

Turning around

The wings above are melting now

Turning around

The crowd below is clearing out

Red orange sky

Sets fire to your open mouth

Turning around

We watch the wings free falling down

Wide open doors swing and dance to a troubled night

Lend me your shoulder, I’ll sing you an alibi

When all that’s left are the worlds we left behind

Lend me your shoulder, I’ll sing you an alibi

Holding the thread

The link of life and levity

Open your eyes

Revive and live my destiny

Open your eyes

Open your eyes

Open your eyes

 

 

 

SPINNING

 

Give me a try, open up your palm, I want to see all of the lines

The river flows as I close my eyes, I am looking for the signs

All the things we try to see

All the things we try to see

Pretend again in this game of ours as we hide behind the screen

Our broken bells and broken wings have led us here my dear

All the things we try to see

All the things we try to see

Do we ever really see

Oh and the room is spinning and the room is spinning and the room is spinning yeah

Oh and the room is spinning and the room is spinning and the room is spinning yeah

Let’s take a ride through the hills tonight, I’d like to breathe the sunset air

Mulholland drive is paradise and a place I’ll always fear

All the things we try to fear

All the things we try to fear

In my hands, in my soul

He will never let me go

In my heart, in my soul

In my heart, in my soul

He will never let me go

In my heart I know

In my heart

Pretend again in this game of ours as we hide behind the screen

Our broken bells and broken wings have led us here my dear

All the things we try to see

All the things we try to see

Do we ever really see?

Oh and the room is spinning and the room is spinning and the room is spinning yeah

Oh and the room is spinning and the room is spinning and the room is spinning yeah

In my hands, in my soul

He will never let me go

In my heart, in my soul

In my heart, in my soul

He will never let me go

In my heart I know

In my heart

 

 

 

INTO THE BLUE

 

Couldn't swim any deeper

Couldn't breathe, had to come up for air

With my head and my heart above water

I pray the current will take me there

Down and down I'm spinning round and round out of my mind

I close my eyes, I close my eyes

Fall into the blue

Give myself to you

Drifting down below

There's a place in my mind that I go

Where I feel renewed

Fall into the blue

I could float here forever

In the blue I'm suspended in tears

It's been a while since my feet touched the bottom

I pray the current will take me there

Down and down I'm spinning round and round out of my mind

I close my eyes, I close my eyes

Fall into the blue

Give myself to you

Drifting down below

There's a place in my mind that I go

Where I feel renewed

Fall into the blue

Into the blue

Into the blue

 

 

 

I CAN FEEL IT ALL

 

Held in a pattern tonight

Save it for me

Found in the fugitive light

Save it for me

Held in arms of amber

All in the blink of an eye

Save it for me

In two dimension moments fade

In two dimension faces slip away

I can feel it all breathing through the walls

Feel it all burn in a blaze of sun

I can feel it all

Floating on contrails tonight

Save it for me

Try not to lavish the sight

Save it for me

Lethe amnesia draws me in

Won’t ever float here again

Save it for me

In two dimension moments fade

In two dimension faces slip away

I can feel it all breathing through the walls

Feel it all burn in a blaze of sun

I can feel it all

Feel it all

I can feel it all

Feel it all

I can feel it all

Feel it all

I can feel it all

Feel it all

I can feel it all

I can feel it all

Save it for me

 

 

 

WLCM

 

Here I am a stranger

Here I am an old man

Staring in the mirror, mirror

How did we arrive here?

How he moves when I move

Moving in the mirror, mirror

Blinking of our eyes

Snapping of our fingers

You may forget

In time you may not see

What love can mean

What love can mean

Stay wild at heart

But know the end is near

What love can mean

What love can mean

Save our time together

Stranger in the mirror

How did I not know you, know you?

When we dance together

I feel the space between us

Holding on don’t lose me, lose me

You may forget

In time you may not see

What love can mean

What love can mean

Stay wild at heart

But know the end is near

What love can mean

What love can mean

 

 

 

NIGHTTIME WATCHING

 

In the wall of the square inch of the heart

The heart of the square foot is the wall

In the wall of the square inch of the heart of the square foot

Light can be separated

The heart of the square foot is the wall

The field of the square inch in the wall

Can we get back to some nighttime watching?

Nighttime watching, Nighttime watching

Infrared light, do you see her crossing?

See her face in the milk, in the morning?

I know.

Can we get back to some nighttime watching?

Nighttime watching, Nighttime watching
