Thoughts in the shape of words.

In The Heat Of The Night

The music starts
A few tones in the night
Sure, I’ve got my faults
But soon I’m gonna feel alright

I waltz down the street
A few steps to release me
Oh wouldn’t it be neat
Just moving to be set free

In the heat of the night
When passion takes charge
And you dance in the rain
Even though life is hard
You shake it off all right
In those smoke ridden lights
In the heat of the night

And all around
The rhythm drives the feet
Of this entire town
On every single dead-end street

I stumble forward
Looking for everyday magic
I lower my guard
But I won’t fall for any tricks

In the heat of the night
When passion takes charge
And you dance in the rain
Even though life is hard
You shake it off all right
In those smoke ridden lights
In the heat of the night

Night-time is love
You don’t wanna get rid of
Night-time is hate
Trying to work out your fate
Night-time is anger
Night-time is pain
Time for vampires
In their dark domain

In the heat of the night
When passion takes charge
And you dance in the rain
Even though life is hard
You shake it off all right
In those smoke ridden lights
In the heat of the night

Late Hours

I saw you dancing in the crowd

And you were so young and free

As free

As only you could be

In my search for joy

Won’t you dance with me?

 

Give me one night of mischief

One night of lust

And I’ll give you my entire love

‘Cause I work hard all week

To pay my bills

Wont you come on darling

And give me that thrill

 

Let these late hours be ours

Let these late hours be our time

I see you shine like the flowers

In these late hours

 

You know I’ve spent some time alone

And I’ve been down on the ground

Never sound

Yes on the verge to drown

I’m not satisfied

In this dull old town

 

If I can break out of here

Holding you near

I’m on my way to the promised land

And with you beside me

I’ll never stop

Getting out of of what’s less

Finding my right place

 

Let these late hours be ours

Let these late hours be our time

I see you shine like the flowers

In these late hours

 

Let’s roam the streets tonight

And let me hold you tight

My bed will provide us comfort

Safety for two lovers

Underneath these covers

 

Let these late hours be ours

Let these late hours be our time

I see you shine like the flowers

In these late hours

 

Let these late hours be ours

Let these late hours be our time

I see you shine like the flowers

In these late hours

Rain Keep A-falling

Inside waiting as the rain keeps falling

It falls with the harshness of a whip

And I wonder about this hard rain

And I’m thinking about abandoning ship

 

You can call yourself a god of whatever

Plead your right to the wind and weather

And those who are mad sure speak their mind

They take much space but not for the better

 

You keep crawling

Try to support your calling

But there’s no sign of stopping

Rain Keep A-falling

Yes the Rain Keeps A-falling

 

And outside the masses are getting wet

And they never even knew their threat

Isn’t it so sad to see those people met

Now all I can see is their silhouette

 

Strengthen the levees now for the flood

Because you know it’s coming fast

And I ask you how much blood

Does it take to repeat the past

 

You keep crawling

Try to support your calling

But there’s no sign of stopping

Rain Keep A-falling

Yes the Rain Keeps A-falling

 

Why would you fight against yourselves

When theres a larger evil out there everywhere

I can never figure out why we kill ourselves

Or let the worst of us be billionaires

 

But I innerly wish for just anything

Anything that beats this wicked reality

To get out of our everyday boxing ring

And to see a live and let live mentality

 

And you keep crawling

Try so hard to support your calling

But there’s no sign of stopping

Rain Keep A-falling

Yes the Rain Keeps A-falling

Two Souls

Yesterday i had a good time
I found a friend who’d share the night
And make me feel alive again somehow
I sure needed to feel joy all right

It’s not often I see
A soul so released
I cried out please
Help me to feel

Two souls meeting

My heart beating

And somehow I find

Once again

That life can be kind

Out of my hole

Two Souls

I asked you for some salvation
And you surely did provide
Like a torch leading the way through the night
You showed me the way and had nothing to hide

I don’t know who I am
Sometimes I don’t give a damn
But in you I see some hope
To help me up from this slippery slope

Two souls meeting

My heart beating

And somehow I find

Once again

That life can be kind

Out of my hole

Two Souls

Walking Tall

Lying in bed all day
Maybe theres something going on
So I try to find my black coat
It’s not top notch but it’s okay

Staring out the window now
The cars are just rolling by
So many people going somewhere
Some break the law some their vows

How long can you live with a lie
A lie that’s tearing you apart.
You can pretend and deceive
But you’re just deceived in your heart

I want more worlds to explore
I don’t want to be trapped
I’m walking out of that door
Hoping for some luck

I’m walking tall tonight
Through many tainted streets
In order to feel alive somehow
To get that feeling back in my gut
I’m no fool all right
I’m walking tall tonight

I hear and I see
Trouble all around the world
And many worries on my mind
Makes it so hard too feel

I feel for the ones
Those who never chase their dreams
The ones who struggle for a meal
Those constantly on the run

This is not easy to bear
Upon a single pair of shoulders
And some people just don’t care
They just do what their parents told ’em

I’ll never be one for fortunes of gold
What good shall it do for my mind
I’ve heard many stories told
And I’m gonna find my time

I’m walking tall tonight
Through many tainted streets
In order to feel alive somehow
To get that feeling back in my gut
I’m no fool all right
I’m walking tall tonight

Losing Control

When I woke up this morning
I was feeling all right
But there was this yearning
I had so many doubts

It’s so very hard for me
To sit down and focus my mind
So very hard to see
Beyond false words unkind

Well you know sometimes I get lost in the clouds every day
But I can’t go there today because you know there’s a price you pay


For losing control
I’d always been told
That
You’re not made for that role

Still I’m losing control
As my life unfolds
I’m losing control

Well I went out for a walk
A fresh view of the world
But all I hear is the same old talk
And it’s getting pretty old

You know I hear all your words
They’re just whispers of Insanity
When I hear all your words
I wish I’d been exempt from gravity

Well you know sometimes I get lost in the clouds every day
You can’t tell me what to do and you can’t tell me what to say

I’m losing control
I’d always been told
That
You’re not made for that role

Still I’m losing control
As my life unfolds
I’m losing control

Don’t Let Her Go

Into my life you came
Like a storm changed it up
In you I saw the answers
That I could not think of
By myself for a reason
I was held in a prison

I saw your face
Over a cup of tea
We’re not that close
But I can feel
The tension in the air
When my company you share

She’s more than I could dream of
I’m hiding my feelings you know
When my inner voice keeps telling me
Not to let her go
Don’t let her go
Never let her go
Oh you feel for her so
Don’t let her go

I see you wherever I go
Wherever I steer
But are there words
I never get to hear
What hides within your mind
I hope for nothing unkind

As this painting
Is just being started
I hope our paths
Will not be parted
Into separate fates
Where feelings escape

She’s more than I could dream of
I’m hiding my feelings you know
When my inner voice keeps telling me
Not to let her go
Don’t let her go
Never let her go
Oh you feel for her so
Don’t let her go

I am left here
With emotional hunger
As you leave my house
I never stop to wonder
When I’ll see you again
I wonder my friend

There’s no way to tell you
What I need to say
There’s that sensitive line
I can’t cross anyway
‘Cause I need you close
I’m a fool for you I suppose

She’s more than I could dream of
I’m hiding my feelings you know
When my inner voice keeps telling me
Not to let her go
Don’t let her go
Never let her go
Oh you feel for her so
Don’t let her go

In The Spiders Web

In the spiders web
Is where we’re stuck
Unable to move
Now we’re out of luck

We can’t move a muscle
Unable to take a step
This is where we’re stuck
In the spiders web

They came with their artillery first
When violence were their solution
Now they wear their sharp suits
But still with the same delusion

You can fool an entire country
With made up numbers and lies
And I tell you it’s not funny
When it’s an eye for an eye

In the spiders web
Is where we’re stuck
Unable to move
Now we’re out of luck

We can’t move a muscle
Unable to take a step
This is where we’re stuck
In the spiders web

You may have traveled a long way
Searched in flow, searched in ebb
Then you’re first to be sent away
Or placed right into the web

But we must always remember
And we must never forget
Everyone can rise together
To sweep away those threats

In the spiders web
Is where we’re stuck
Unable to move
Now we’re out of luck

We can’t move a muscle
Unable to take a step
This is where we’re stuck
In the spiders web

Moving On

Well we all had our downs
And we all had our perks
And I thought we’d stick together
But that’s just not how it works

If I could change the past
And rearrange the ticking time
I sure would give it a try
Because those times were fine

But bonds are easily broken
And it’s so sad, but still so true
Those past days of pure joy
Disappeared without a clue

We had each other once
We were blood brothers
We lived and roamed free
And the earth was our mother

Now we’re thousand miles apart
Some are in the mountains, some at sea
We drifted so vague and slow
We didn’t know what would be

Everyone’s finding their way
Starting a new life to live
I’m trying as hard as I can
But I’ve got doubts of what I can give

Yes, what once were is gone
And I guess that’s okay
If you could wear my coat for a day
You’d know I’m headed for the crossroads some day

We had each other once
We were blood brothers
We lived and roamed free
And the earth was our mother

Savior In White

Psychiatrist ward
Cold and grey
My mind is out of control
On this rainy day

Concrete waiting room
A vending machine there
And I’m about to explode
In this old wooden chair

Waiting all night for some words
Waiting all night to be heard

Saviour in white
Please hurry up
Savior in white
I cant take this much

Saviour in white
Please hurry up
Savior in white
I cant take this much

Hours they pass
The night’s settlin’ in
Walking in circles
A cup of coffee to drink

Try and understand
I’m as low as you can get
I’m just looking for some assistance
Finishing off my last cigarette

Waiting all night so please
Waiting to get some release

Saviour in white
Please hurry up
Savior in white
I cant take this much

Saviour in white
Please hurry up
Savior in white
I cant take this much

This is my last outpost
And no one should feel this way
The department of joy is closed
Lend a hand if you may

Saviour in white
Please hurry up
Savior in white
I cant take this much

Saviour in white
Please hurry up
Savior in white
I cant take this much

Can’t take it anymore
I’m stranded on a distant shore
Can’t stand the waiting for sure
Just can’t take this anymore

Saviour in white
Please hurry up
Savior in white
I cant take this much

Saviour in white
Please hurry up
Savior in white
I cant take this much
