since I saw you last

SINCE I SAW YOU LAST: 2013

Since I saw you last

REQUIEM

Hatches matches then dispatches
All in the embers of my ashes
Thy will was done
Oh wipe that worry from your face
You’ll die when you see my new face but
Do the time
You’re in for life

Oh my friends I hear you sing
The lord’s my shepherd really what a song to sing
Why bring me flowers
When you know that I can’t smell a thing
For the folks I leave behind
I’m in heaven well imagine my surprise
I’m really flattered that you came here to remember
And look I made the news again
In Requiem, with all my friends
There is no shame here, I feel no loss
The pawn and king both in the same box
And no one famous
Please don’t panic
It looks so tragic
All switching seats on the Titanic
I’m sad to go
Hope you enjoy the show

Oh my friends I hear you say
A lot of lovely things about me here today
I’m glad you didn’t let the truth get in the way
To all my friends I leave behind
They put a spread on so let’s all go back to mine
I really love it that you came here to remember
And look we made the news at ten
In Requiem with all my friends
This dyin’ ain’t much of a living no no
Will we want what we’re given heaven knows

Oh my friends I hear you sing
The lord’s my shepherd really what a song to sing
Why bring me flowers when you
Know that I can’t smell a thing
For the folks I leave behind
I’m in heaven well imagine my surprise
I’m really flattered that you came here to remember
And look I made the news again
In Requiem with all my friends
With all my friends
Requiem
LET ME GO
A room full of sadness
A broken heart
And only me to blame
For every single part
No Science or Religion
Could make this whole
To be loved, but never loved
To have, but never hold
It’s a life alone, and a desperate need
To be held to be loved so
This is gonna take a bit of getting used to, but I know what’s right for you

Fly high and let me go
That sky will save your soul
When you pass by then you’ll know
That this gonna take a bit of getting used to but I know what’s right for you
Let me go

A head full of madness
And no where safe
When tears aren’t big enough, and love turns into hate
It’s a life alone, and a desperate need
To be held to be loved so
That this gonna take a bit of getting used to but I know what’s right for you

Fly high and let me go
That sky will save your soul
When you pass by then you’ll know
That this gonna take a bit of getting used to but I know what’s right for you

So let me go life will get better
Find the love I never gave ya
I know you lie there waiting all night long, so find where you belong

Fly high and let me go (Let me go)
That sky will save your soul (Let it save your soul tonight)
Fly high and let me go (Let me go let me go)
That sky will save your soul
But this gonna take a bit of getting used to but I know what’s right for you
Let me go

JUMP

Do you sometimes feel your life is leaving you behind
With one eye closed, half a world unknown
You want to wave for help but both your hands are tied
You want to start again but you’re just too scared
So if you wanna find out, just go ahead and try now
If the thought is terrifying
The risk is really frightening
And your only fear is falling
You should leave without a warning and

Jump, fly
Let your feet leave the ground, step into the sky and
Jump, high
If you want a better view,
Then another life is calling you to
Go ahead and try now
Or how you gonna find out
If life has got predictable
Go on do something wonderful
The first step is the hardest
You’ll be safe without a harness so jump
You never stand to win if you’re not in the race
When voices cheer, you’ll be far from here
And maybe once or twice you’ll fall flat on your face
But when you move on you’ll be twice as strong
Go out on a limb now
Throw caution to the wind now
If the thought is terrifying
The risk is really frightening
And your only fear is falling
You should leave without a warning and

Jump
Make up your mind
You’ll be just in time
Jump, Jump
If the thought is terrifying
The risk is really frightening
And your only fear is falling
You should leave without a warning and jump
You should leave without a warning

Jump…

FACE TO FACE (avec Elton John)

It’s a true sign of a soldier
Taking care of the hearts around us
And the whole world loves a hero
A leader and a shoulder to cry on
That’s what you are to me
Everyone around can see yeah

When we’re face to face oh I
When the music plays oh I
Standing side by side
Put the past behind us
No one can take your place
When we’re face to face
You can measure the strength of a human
By the weight of the love around them
One sweet light in the darkness
Guided us all like a pilot
That’s that you are to me
Everyone around believes yeah

When you live your life with a passion
Taking nothing for granted
You made me believe if you give love, you will find it
You, you are the world to me yeah
A heart as wide as the ocean
You aim to climb every mountain
And the unknown you understand it

GOD

Persevere in your direction
They guarantee that one day you’ll be found
Who will see divine intervention
A lottery while we stand on solid ground
As the world stands in line
The bells start to chime
If your life’s helpless then it’s time
They knew you could run
They knew you could fight
Sharpen your arrows now

Tell me If you found God and he gave you hope
Would you tell the world or save your soul
If you found God, would you take him home
Would you open the curtains or keep them closed
If you found God, if you found God
Would it be your secret
Try your faith and all their answers
All been quoted from the book of man
For every sin and your repentance
Can be forgiven he’s the man who can
The place and the time
It’s in your bloodline
Never be easy on yourself
For a king and a son
The steeple’s still strong
Put down your rifle and sleep

Could anyone really be that selfish?
Could anyone really be that cruel?
To keep the king of heaven and earth right next to you
They knew you could run
They knew you could fight
Sharpen your arrows now

SMALL TOWN GIRLS

Small town girls live life sweetly
They don’t waste time dreaming of opportunity
Small town girls learn quickly
They live for who they are not who they wanna be
Upon the greenest grass they laugh and grow
The man who makes the boundaries no one knows

Small town girls they make the whole world turn
Don’t get their fingers burned quite as easy as the rest, oh oh
Small town girls they make my heart collapse
Such a shame the Bible never said that
Foundations of the world they are built on small town girls
Small town girls stop at nothing
They take no prisoners, never try small talking
And what they have is quite unique
Their hearts
are big enough to wear on their sleeves
Upon the greenest grass they laugh and grow
The man who makes the boundaries no one knows

Everybody knows they’re quite a chase
When everybody looks they hide their face
Small town girls are innocent
With rosy cheeks and grassy knees their life is heaven sent
Most girls marry young and have some kids
But who am I to tell them what they’ve missed

Small town girls

6th AVENUE

A strip of sunlight, a moment in time
A change of direction
Your life in a face, your words on a page
Now your heart needs no protection
In one conversation I saw what I’d always believed in
In just a few words I could tell it would hurt
To leave you without knowing when I might see you again
So again I depend on the unknown

I’ve traveled six thousand miles thirty thousand feet just to see you
Where is the danger
I have my return ticket ready with nothing to lose
Has time taken leave of our senses
Or has sense taken leave of our time
If all of my life has been leading to this rendezvous
Let it happen on 6th Avenue
I’ve always lived life in search of surprise
I keep my eyes open
What you can’t control you can’t leave alone
So don’t choose be chosen
Now your tongue can’t say the questions cos you know the answers
In just a few words I could tell it would hurt
To leave you without knowing when I might see you again

On any other day I’d have taken Broadway
In a New York minute
To think I could have missed you

WE LIKE TO LOVE

Standing here without you I’ve got nothing to say
Seems my guardian angel had the day off today
Someone ahead of me is calling out my name
Without you I can’t stay
Standing at the gates they asked me what did I learn
So glad I got this far and still my soul hasn’t burned
Feels like I’ve run a race but haven’t even moved
Without you it’s so cold
But without you I now know

Love is for the inspirational
Love is for the supernatural
All this time we spend on earth and just give it away
Love is for the conversational
Love is for the two dimensional
Love is for the common people so give it a try
Cos we like to love we like to love ‘til we cry
Yeah we like to love we like to love ‘til we die
Standing here so bare with no possessions to hide
Not too early or too late just got here in time
What feels so dangerous is this view is so sublime
Without you I’m right here
Without you I can’t hear

Now with retrospect and reason
I can see life’s one true meaning
Love me, Love me
There’s no future in the final act
So I sit looking back to when you loved me
You loved me
We like to love 

SINCE I SAW YOU LAST

They took my voice
Erased my past
With all that noise
It couldn’t last
With words so cruel
I washed my face
Hoped one day
I’d wake up in a better place

Today I took back what was stolen
And gave new life to what was frozen
One mouth talking
A dead man walking
A thousand faces watched me falling —
I’ve made my peace with what may happen
Accepted I won’t be in fashion
Oh you gave, I got it
Yeh you gave, I got it all back
Since I saw you last
When brothers land
And take what’s good
You can win a war
Oh, and shed no blood
Everybody plays their part
Oh we let the haters hate
While everybody’s losing heart
Lying in the longest grass I sit and wait

I know you heard
My shout for help
For those who stood and watched
Go f— yourself
I know you heard my cry for help
I know you heard I was going through hell
I know you heard I was losing my mind
I know you heard it was a matter of time
I know you heard…

THIS HOUSE
This house, built from stone
Bricks and mortar
Love and hope
Voices, children cry
Parents teach us
Wrong from right
What makes your heart ache
What makes us thankful for every day
It’s always the brightest light
That takes you home each night

Open the doors and windows
Whole world inside these four walls
More than a building
Floor to the ceiling
A picture of love
That’s this house
Peaceful, home sweet home
Stuff needs fixing but nothing’s broke
Full hearts, passing time
So glad this place is
Yours and mine
What makes you soul warm
What makes us be the people we’ve become
It’s always the brightest light
That takes you home each night

These walls
Full of heart
Brothers, sisters
Play their part
From innocence to teenage fights
Christenings, weddings
This is life

That’s this house

 

DYING INSIDE

How can I make sure no one notices me
I don’t wanna conversation with nobody
And it hurts too much to say how I feel
What you don’t know, is all I know
How can I make sure that I fool everyone
Gonna wear a suit and tie and put my bravest face on
And it’s far too deep to show you this wound
It won’t heal no time soon
Nobody knows what I’m going through

I’m dying inside
Who knows what I’m thinking
What I’m trying to hide
Yeh I’m dying all night
I’m breathing but I can’t feel life
I’m smiling but I’m dying inside
How can I make sure I’m invisible
Or find just a simple phrase that may say it all
Cos it’s far too soon and not the right time
What I’ve seen was for my eyes
And how can I make sure no one worries for me
’Cos I don’t need helping hand and don’t want sympathy
Don’t know what I need but know what I don’t
What you can’t see it feels so broke
That you can’t see is how I’ll cope

Want everyone around to think that I’m alright
Hope they assume I’ve left the dark and found the light
Want them to think that I don’t cry myself to sleep at night

MORE THAN LIFE
It’s a gift, it’s a blessing
An all white wedding, a peaceful morning in June
It’s a crown
It’s a calling
A rain shower falling, a new born yawning that’s new
It’s a smile, it’s a space
It’s a familiar place
It’s a long embrace with someone you love
It’s a bright sleepy thought
It’s a standing applause
It’s a meaningful cause that could save us all
This love’s got stronger with time
And this love’s reciprocal
We’ve had it all and have it all to find

I love you more than life
I love you more than life
And what we are is written in these lines
I love you more than life
It’s a white empty shore
It’s a New Year’s roar
It’s a curtain call on the greatest show
It’s the start of a new day
It’s getting your own way
It’s your child’s 1st birthday
Now get some sleep
It’s that feeling in your heart
It’s one drink too far
It’s a brand new car, you can drive yourself
It’s when visitors have gone
It’s your favorite song
It’s a singalong so let’s sing along
This love’s got stronger with time
And this love’s reciprocal
We’ve had it all and have it all to find

It’s a fun ride fair
It’s the wind in your hair
It’s the oldest chair that’s so comfortable
It’s a light, it’s a healing
That Friday feeling
The last journey home
Wanna let the whole world know
MR EVERYTHING
To think that we once shared a home
To think that we once had a goal
And I was once inside your heart
Oh and now this end it means a start
So what’s love like in the present tense
How did I rate
How can I defend
It hurts too much for me to comprehend
I lose you all over again

Is he Mr. Incredible, Mr Desirable
Mr Emotional, always devotional
Mr and Mrs who always blow kisses
Their children are children who crave possibilities
Ain’t life so cruel when you’re just not good enough
Ain’t life so cruel when there’s someone else she loves
To think that you now share a bed
Oh to think my piece was never said
Oh we run but never got too far
Oh we were in the race but never left the start
So what’s love like in the present tense
Was there any change, how much did you spend?
You make love kissing someone else’s face
The honeymoon starts everyday

Is he Mr. Dependable, Mr Commendable
Never mucks up like a Mr. Expendable
Mr and Mrs he washes the dishes
But gives you the life of finances unlimited
Ain’t life so cruel when you’re just not good enough
Ain’t life so cruel when there’s someone else she loves
There’s no time to be happy
Too much to be sad
Hope that our time was the best that you had
Though everything seems such a blur we did love
And everything that you did wrong I forgot
So what’s love like sitting on the fence
D’you ever look back, to how we were then
It hurts so much for you to lose my name
I’d lose you all over again

Is he Mr Exceptional, Mr Professional
Never in doubt through and through heterosexual
Love’s never fast and he always comes last
He’s the best seller a relationship enthusiast
Mr Incredible, Mr Desirable, Mr Emotional
Always devotional
Mr and Mrs who always blow kisses
Their children are children who crave possibilities
Ain’t life so cruel when you’re just not good enough
Ain’t life so cruel when there’s someone else she loves
Mr Everything

ACTRESS
She sleeps better with the TV on
She came in dark but she goes out blonde
Her mother slept with a Rolling Stone
Her lights are on but she’s never at home
She’s never at home

She’s an actress tryna’ learn the art
Actress searching for a part
If you ask her, ask her what she’s in
And watch her act again
Still trying to figure out who she is
Sometimes she’s mine but she’s always his
She made a movie once for fifty bucks
You can still get it if you know where to look
If you know where to look

All lies, all lies
Bad breaks and broken minds
Old words of make believe
One more honey just for me
Tryna’ find a line
Tryna’ hold back time
Ask her what she’s in
And watch her act again
She leaves the doorway right behind her
Her whole world is a stage
She needs to feel your eyes upon her
As she dances in a cage
The music’s pumping louder
As her mind heads to the stars
She gets clarity of thought in the back of someone else’s car

 

THE SONG I’LL NEVER WRITE

Although it’s here in every breath I take
I just can’t bear to share the thought
Don’t wanna hear my voice or find the key
To unlock this door
For the first time in my life
I refuse to quantify in notes & rhymes

It’s the song that I could never write
It means too much I’d never try
Nothin’ to add I’d only take away
It’s the song I’m not prepared to share
Or hear it’s message on the air
The words would be too personal to say
So I’ll just take the day off today
It’s like the loudest voice inside my head
But I’m the only one that hears
Won’t let my pain and paper ever meet
No I won’t hear my tears
It won’t get out I’m far too strong
To let these feelings be three minutes long

It’s alright it’s ok, I go through this everyday
It won’t escape I’m awake, it won’t end up on the page
Not in this life
Thats the song that I will never write

It’s the song that I can never find
It can’t be yours was never mine
That’s the song that I’ll never write
