LOST SONGS 95-98

  • 1. Flame Turns Blue (4:51)

    I went looking for someone I left behind
    Yeah but no-one just a stranger did I find
    I never noticed hadn’t seen it as it grew
    The void between us where the flame turns blue

    Different places but they all look the same
    Dreams of faces in the streets devoured by names
    I’m in collision with every stone I ever threw
    And blind ambition where the flame turns blue

    Words dismantled hey and all the books unbound
    Conversations though we utter not a sound
    I heard a rumour I don’t know if it’s true
    That you’d meet me where the flame turns blue
    So I venture underneath the leaden sky
    See the freight train with its one fierce eye
    And then I listen as it tears the night into
    With a whistle and the flame turns blue

    In the morning I will sing
    In the morning I will sing

    Through the lemon trees the diamonds of light
    Break in splinters on the pages where I write
    That if I lost you I don’t know what I’d do
    Burn forever where the flame turns blue

    Yeah if lost you I don’t know what I’d do
    Burn forever where the flame turns blue

    In the morning I will sing
    In the morning I will sing
    In the morning I will sing
    Sing
  • 2. Twilight (2:25)

    Wash the twilight
    From my head
    Hanging on a brighter thread
    Little darlin
    Till I see you once again

    Tell the man to
    Fill my cup
    Honey, I ain’t gonna stop
    Little darlin
    Till I see you once again

    Pinch me if I’m dreaming
    I’m somewhere I’ve never been when
    You lead me by my hand
    Into the flame
    Just the rain now
    On my hat
    And the past
    What use is that?
    Little darlin’
    Till I see you once again

    Na na na na na na na na na na na na
    Na na na na na na na na na
  • 3. Hold On (1:54)

    Hold on
    Hold on to me
    Hold on
    Hold on to me

    Sometimes theres no easy way
    Got to cause somebody pain
    Watching you
    You hit so hard on yourself
    Cos you need someone to blame

    Oh now
    What will you do
    Oh now
    What will you do
    Cant help the way youre feeling
    Dont want to leave him so alone
    Lisa cries
    Her red hair streaming down
    Feels like her heart is made of stone
  • 4. As I’m Leaving (4:32)

    As I’m leaving
    A change comes on my eyes
    These streets persuading me
    With mumbles, strange goodbyes

    And through the water
    Through the ring
    To the soul of everything
    Throw my heart out
    On the stones
    And I’m almost gone

    And there’s no meaning
    In clothes and coffee cups
    Cheap hotel furniture
    Where silence never stops
    And through the water
    Through the ring
    To the soul of everything
    Throw my heart out
    On the stones
    And I’m almost gone

    And now I’m dreaming
    I’m staring at the walls
    At cars all frozen now
    In late night waterfalls

    And through the water
    Through the ring
    To the soul of everything
    Throw my heart out
    On the stones
    And I’m almost

    Through the water
    Through the ring
    To the soul of everything
    Wash my heart out
    On the stones
    And I’m almost gone
  • 5. If Your Love Is Real (3:33)

    Three days spent staring at your photograph
    Read your letter made me laugh
    There’s a shadow on the path
    Til I know
    If your love is real

    Cos it’s not as if a lot was said
    Falling in and falling out of bed
    But now the world’s turned on its head
    Til I know
    If your love is real

    Spent a long time now persuading myself
    That I don’t need no-one
    Nobody else
    That I’d felt all there was to feel
    I’m in a daydream now I’m out to lunch
    And should it come down to the crunch
    I’m wide open for that sucker punch
    Til I know
    If your love is real

    Til I know
    If your love is real

    Spent a long time now persuading myself
    That I don’t need no-one
    Nobody else
    That who I was, I could conceal

    I know if I should live one hundred years
    I’d never see another face like yours
    On stranger seas or brighter shores
    Cos I know
    That my love is real
  • 6. Tidal Wave (2:20)

    Ever since your fingertips
    Ever since your eyes
    Talking with the light oh
    Bluer skies

    Even if I wanted to
    How could I explain?
    Coming through my head now
    This tidal wave

    All your favourite eyelashes
    All your bluest skin
    Bring them and I’ll meet you in
    That room again
    Even if I told it true
    Why should they believe
    Coming through my head now
    This tidal wave
    Tidal wave

    Coming over Waterloo
    Dreaming of your hands
    Want to run away now
    Foreign lands

    Even as I lie with you
    Listen to you breathe
    Coming through my head yeah
    This tidal wave
    Tidal wave
    Tidal wave
  • 7. Falling Down The Mountainside (4:49)

    Without a word
    You set your sights
    Into the sun
    When all the world
    You put to rights
    Was still so wrong

    Pin your heart out
    On your sleeve
    Spouting all that make believe
    From your lips
    It seemed it might come true
    Falling down the mountainside with you

    The clothes you wore
    The people stared
    You looked so strange
    To see you move
    St. Vitus dance
    Was in your veins
    And never once
    Afraid to know
    What it feels like when you go
    Out beyond
    Where logic keeps the view
    Falling down the mountainside with you (falling down)

    If you were here
    First thing I’d do
    Is knock you down
    You left me cold
    To meet your ghost
    All over town

    So grind the stone
    And spin the wheel
    Lock the doors on what you feel
    Looking back
    It’s like I always knew
    I’d be falling down the mountainside with you

    Falling down the mountainside with you
    Falling down the mountainside with you
    Falling down the mountainside with you

  • 9. Red Moon (3:26)

    Weighing that silver
    There with your hands
    In no position to make demands
    Got what you wanted
    Oh very nice
    But every kiss must have a price

    I’m getting tired of
    Being denied of
    Saying the same old things
    And those tears aren’t gonna mend
    These broken wings
    Red Moon

    All that I’ve witnessed
    Hard to believe
    I can still find it in me
    To be so naive
    Cry on your pillow
    Into the night
    ‘Cos saying you’re sorry
    Won’t make it right

    I’m getting tired of
    Being denied of
    Things getting in my way
    And if I’m quiet
    That’s ‘cos there’s nothing left to say
    Yeah if I’m quiet
    That’s ‘cos there’s nothing left to say

    Red Moon
    Red Moon
    Red Moon
    Red Moon
  • 10. Clean Pair Of Eyes (4:59)

    Hear me god I’m on the level
    Mapping silence, seeing things
    Crying, laughing like the devil

    And before the might
    Of all that’s seen
    I’ll raise my head
    And wake to dream
    With a clean pair of eyes

    Murdered gold and colours flashing
    Time like blood, like flowing hair
    Faces merging, airplanes crashing

    And before the might
    Of all that’s true
    I’ll raise my head
    And dream anew
    With a clean pair of eyes

    A clean pair of eyes
    Don’t need no one to blame
    Don’t need no disguise
    No sugar to sweet my brain
    A clean pair of eyes

    Today I need no commentary
    Today I do not need to speak
    No explanation necessary

    And before the might
    Of all that’s seen
    I’ll raise my head
    And dream again
    With a clean pair of eyes

    A clean pair of eyes
    Don’t need no right or wrong
    Don’t need no disguise
    No sugar to fix my tongue
    A clean pair of eyes

    Liquid air and flags that ripple
    A tambourine of smoking suns
    Love that blinds us, fear that cripples

    And before the might
    Of all that’s seen
    I’ll raise my head
    And wake to dream

    And before the might
    Of all that’s true
    I’ll raise my head
    And dream anew

    And before the might
    Of all unnamed
    I’ll raise my head
    And dream again

    Dream again
    Dream again
    Dream again
    Dream
