GREEN MAN

Early morning juices blend he chooses

Bowl of seed and water cleanses

Coffeine free with herbs for tea

Clear and fresh he won’t be tempted

High on C he’s staring at me

We make us seem far apart

Dead for a while, resurrects with a smile

Pulls my conscience inside apart

Green Man I’ll take a leaf from your book

Found a new love

I say peace man

Green Man I’ll take a leaf from your book

Found a new love

I say peace man

Second sight no sense of fight

He lives his life for the moment

He stands like a god an enlightened god

Ruby centres his crown

Man of Wealth loaded with health

Alien with a mother’s heart

Magic man with your save Earth plan

Thanks for giving me my part

Green Man I’ll take a leaf from your book

Found a new love

I say peace man

Green Man I’ll take leaf from your book

Found a new love

I say peace man

Our body is a precious thing

Treat it with care

Treat it with bare

As a snake sheds its skin

You’ve got to shed your past

Over and over

Again the more that you give

The more you’ll receive

So give your love for free

Don’t live for the past or the future

Live now

CLEMENTINE

She heard a voice from so far away

It told her her mother had gone away

In the next room down the corridor

Her baby started to cry

Her whole life had just fell apart

There was nothing then the hurting started

In her heavy head on her knees she prayed could somebody help her

Clementine

It was never meant to be this way

It was never meant to be this way

Clementine

It was never meant to be this way

It was never meant to be this way

If only I’d told you yesterday

Got in her car and she sped away

Into the floodlit street down by your way

As the sun rose by the morning dew

Well she returned in such a state

Her baby knew not what was going on

But it could tell from her tears that something was wrong with mum

Desperation let out its final scream

But our clementine didn’t hear a damn thing

Clementine

It was never meant to be this way

It was never meant to be this way

Clementine

It was never meant to be this way

It was never meant to be this way

If only I’d told you yesterday

Into the mirror she stared at herself

Asked is that my life is that what I’m here for

Her reflection chose not to respond

As she froze to the spot like a cold hard statue

And bathed in her tears she said her time was through

CHILD

Sleep peacefully now my child

I hope that you go away

To a place where your dreams can play

Wipe all the tears from your eyes

There is a sky of blue

This is your time of truth

Like a bird high on the wind

May you fly away

Like a snowfall in the spring

may you cares melt away

Child, innocent child

our hope lies inside

your starry eyes

my innocent child

Hero, now that you are free

You have no need to fear

so go out and find your smile

Like a candle in the stream

May you float away

Like a feather on the breeze

May you blow away

Child, innocent child

our hope lies inside

your starry eyes

my innocent child

Like a candle,

Like a snowfall

Like a feather

Like a bird fly away

Like a candle,

Like a snowfall

Like a feather

Like a bird…fly away

Child, innocent child

My innocent child

Child, innocent child

Fly away (x2)

Sleep peacefully now my child

I hope that you go away

to a place where you dreams can play

ARE YOU WITH ME

Taking a walk

Through the valley of a roadside

Taking a walk through the valley of a roadside

on a sunny afternoon

Smoking a smoke

Through the streets of a poppy field

Smoking a smoke through the streets of a poppy field

on a sunny afternoon

I’m travelling down a man made avenue

There’s a stop sign this time I’m going through

Are you with me

On my journey

Are you with me in the search for the sunshine

On a sunny afternoon

Now I’m driving in my car

Down the path of a hillside

Driving in my car

Down the path of a hillside

On a sunny afternoon

Holding your hand

Down a lane made for lovers

Holding your hand

Down a lane made for lovers

On a sunny afternoon

I’m travelling down a man made avenue

There’s a stop sign this time I’m going through

Are you with me

On my journey

Are you with me in the search for the sunshine

On a sunny afternoon

I’m travelling down a man made avenue

There’s a stop sign this time I’m going through

Are you with me

On my journey

Are you with me in the search for the sunshine

On a sunny afternoon (x2)

NATURALLY

Loving comes naturally

Loving comes naturally

As the sun rises above

Shadows are formed

of the two of us

As the bird calls out its song

See flowers dance

with the two of us

as we bare our souls

to the purest form

And let our hearts run free

Loving comes naturally

Loving comes naturally

As the sun hides in the shade

Rain takes its place

Cleanse the two of us

Drink the falls

Feeding the lands, flowing to sea

Just the two of us

As we see our world

From deep inside

And turn our flames up high

Loving comes naturally

Loving comes naturally

Playing outside as the rains coming

Was under the shade of the tree

Was under the shade of that apple tree

That Eve gave her love to me

ASK HIM TO

Last night in my dreams

I saw you with another

And when I turned around, you were gone

It all came back to me

Through a postman and this letter

That brought the words, I fell in love with another

How does it feel, when you wake up in the morning

Do you ever think of me lying here

Cause when I go to sleep

you become my pillow,

and I hold you tight, and whisper into your ear

Does he hold you, the way I used to

Does he smile at you from the center of his heart

Does he live for you, would he die for you

if you told him that you want him to

could he love you, the way I always will

could you ask him to

I ventured out today, I really wish I hadn’t

Cause everything I’ve seen and heard made me think of you

I know I have to get over you but at present I’m finding it hard to do

So I beg you please, to take a moment to ask

Does he hold you, the way I used to

Does he smile at you from the center of his heart

Does he live for you, would he die for you

if you told him that you want him to

could he love you, the way I always will

could you ask him to

Now I’m a speck on your horizon

A fading light inside your eye

I’ve come to understand that you were far beyond me

but I’ll never understand exactly the reasons why

you never explained to me

Does he hold you, the way I used to

Does he smile at you from the center of his heart

Does he live for you, would he die for you

if you told him that you want him to

could he love you, the way I always will

could you ask him to

BACKPOCKET AND ME

We’re all the same now

We’re all the same

We’re all the same now

We’re all the same

In this picture

I’m going to try and get an overview

In this picture

The lines are blurred but my colors are shining through

I start with a canvas

And think about what I want to achieve

From another angle

The paintings gonna make a print of me

Choose the texture

Carot gold, the kind fit for a king

But that aint what I’m about

So I’ll take this earth and I’ll mix it in

Now my paintings ready to begin

But how big should it be

Big enough for the mantlepiece of every home

Or small enough for my back pocket and me

We’re all the same now

We’re all the same

We’re all the same now

We’re all the same

I start with the heart now

The rest will develop from its beat

As it takes shape

The picture no longer resembles me

It resembles every living thing I’ve ever seen or heard

From the heart of me to a flying bird

So now how big should this picture be

Should it fill the world or my back pocket and me

In this picture

I’m going to try and get an overview

In this picture

The lines are blurred but my colors are shining through

We’re all the same now

We’re all the same

We’re all the same now

We’re all the same

Everything, everything will be ok

It will be ok

Cos now I know how this picture should be

it should fill the world, but it also should fill me

my backpocket and me….

MOVE ON

Ok now so it’s over

It’ll never be the same again

The shade has changed its color

The light is shining through you

Cause it’s over

It’s time for you to face the fact

You’ve got to find a whole new track

The problem ain’t without

Don’t hide under your pout

Cause it’s over

You gotta move on

move up, and move through

You’ve gotta move out

move now, real soon

Nobody knows the sadness that I’m feeling today

nobody knows

Who said that it was over

Don’t let your efforts go to waste

You’ve done your time of graft

Let go and you’d be daft

It ain’t over

You’ve gotta come to terms with it

Don’t get left in the has been pit

You’ve still got seven lives

The trier never dies

it ain’t over

You gotta move on

move up, and move through

You’ve gotta move out

move now, real soon

Don’t be afraid to take hold of your reins

Don’t be afraid to wipe clear your blackened slate

You gotta move on

move up, and move through

You’ve gotta move out

move now, real soon

You gotta let it go now (x4)

SECONDHAND WONDERLAND

Mother’s girl has fallen in love

And dad has already told her he has heard enough

He has taken sides of his wife

And he tells his little petal she’s too young for life

So she goes to her room and shuts the world outside

Lays down to sink into her private mind, her other life inside

She sings

Secondhand rocking horse

Let me ride high on you To a secondhand wonderland

Secondhand lover boy

Let me meet up with you In a secondhand wonderland

Husband’s drunk once again

And he rages round the room sign of her real man

She is numb from her pain

But she’s too afraid to leave she just hides it in so deep within

And runs to her room and locks the door behind

Cries herself to sleep another lonely night, but in her dreams she sings

Secondhand rocking horse

Let me ride high with you To a secondhand wonderland

Secondhand wedding day

Let my virgin dance again In our secondhand wonderland

This hour I feel insecure

Got a bag of plastic worries from the grocery store

Wild dogs stand prepared to savage at my flesh if I appear too scared

So I walk the tightrope line without a safety net

As the rope begins to fray I buy another set,

From the second hand rope store

I sing

Secondhand rocking horse

Let me ride high with you To a secondhand wonderland

Secondhand wooden horse

Take me far away with you To a secondhand wonderland

MY LOVE

Today I feel a change,

in the way you look at me

And all I have to say

is that I like it

Today I see a change

In your glowing, loving, chestnut eyes

And all that I can say

is that I feel it

You are everything to me

You are everything I need

My love

And so much more than that

My love

And so much more, so much more

Today I hear a change

In your gentle, whispering singing voice

And all I have to say

is keep talking

Today I felt a change

as your hands, they touched the soul of me

And all I have to say

is keep touching

You make this world for me

You are all that I could be

My love

And so much more than that

My love

And so much more, so much more

I never knew

What love was all about,

until I started looking at you

No one ever tried to tell or show me so I finally figured it out for myself,

that what you need

is someone, who without, you can’t breathe

My love

And so much more than that

My love

And so much more, so much more

How I wish, that I could be like you

How I wish, that I could feel like you

How I hope, that I touch you like you

How I hope

My love

And so much more than that

My love

And so much more, so much more

I AM WHAT I AM

Looking at me through the eye of a needle

is a scary thing to do

I feel a mole hill lies in front of me to climb

Is your primary purpose in life

to scrutinize every move I make

cos if it is I think you’re wasting precious time

Well I know that I have got a job to do

And I know, that my job is pleasing you, but

I am what I am

The way god made me

I am what I am

Don’t try and change me

Well I know I have my weaknesses

as you point them out to me

but I’ll confront the spots of doubt as they arise

Never born to be a leader

but I’ll take my role with pride

cos a soldier with his honours lies inside

Well I know that I have got a job to do

As you say, that my job revolves around you

I am what I am

The way god made me

I am what I am

Don’t try and change me

Well I know that I have got a job to do

But my life, wasn’t made for you

I am what I am

The way god made me

I am what I am

Don’t try and change me

I am what I am

The way god made me

IS THAT WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT

Could somebody give me an answer

a solution to fill up my space

As I take a peep out of the whole in my window

I see a land that is filled with disgrace

Now is it me, or did it used to seem better?

Now a tear grows in every man’s eye

but the tear never once reached the surface

And the tree which I climbed slowly dies

Is that what it’s all about?

Hiding our feelings away

Let the problem be that of another man

I’m living my life in this way

Far away from a troubled face

Is that what it’s all about?

A cure ain’t been found for my problem just yet

behind the wrought iron gate, it is there, I bet

but the key got a caught in a fishermans net

With a dolphin the boy wanted for his pet

Well I know I ain’t getting no younger

pretty soon I guess I’ll be extinct

and all that I’ll leave to remember

is this question I paused once to think

Is that what it’s all about?

Hiding our feelings away

Let the problem be that of another man

I’m living my life in this way

Far away from a troubled face

Is that what it’s all about?

Put it behind you

Turn a blind eye

Though you always know that it’s here

Living your life through the line of defence

I stand for myself, is that what it’s all about?

Well I know I ain’t getting no younger

pretty soon I guess I’ll be extinct

and all that I’ll leave to remember

is this question I paused once to think

Is that what it’s all about?

Hiding our feelings away

Let the problem be that of another man

I’m living my life in this way

Far away from a troubled face

Is that what it’s all about?

Is that what it’s all about?
