missing you 05:15
Missing you Crowded room , I’m on my own Too many parties leave me wishing you were home You went away with a promise You would return Lonley days and lonley nights Lonley weeks and years Baby won’t you please come home I’m missing you Another girl when you’re not there Dark skinned lady with perfect beauty Flowers in her hair She’s the girl in the room that everyone desires Lovely lady of exquisite beauty eyes like smouldering fire All tis counts for nothing Baby I’m missing you If I could see your face again Feel your arms around me then I could spent another week or more Just missing you The parties over, that’s another day Empty bottles , lipstick glasses A smoky cigarette haze Friends have gone they helped me While away some time I could make through tomorrow If I’m sure that your still mine Baby won’t you please come home I’m missing you If I could see your face again Feel your arms around me then I could spent another week or more Just missing you

foolish ways 07:02
Foolish ways I just saw the photographs brought it home to me If I’d have just stayed around How different my life could have been Never told I loved her enough I just thought she’d know But deep inside me I knew That she would go It’s up to you Tracey To forgive my foolish ways Maybe get the opportunity To make it up to you some way It’s up to you Tracey To find a place for me Forgive my foolish ways ,Tracey I was young and foolish then, inexperienced She was but a young girl full of innocence Although I loved her I sent her away Hoping she’d find that life was kind It didn’t have to be my way It’s up to you Tracey To forgive my foolish ways Maybe get the opportunity To make it up to you some way It’s up to you Tracey To find a place for me Forgive my foolish ways ,Tracey Many times I’ve called out, many times I’ve cried Many times I’ve wished that she was by my side She always gave so much but I couldn’t receive And although I’ve regretted it since I let her leave It’s up to you Tracey To forgive my foolish ways Maybe get the opportunity To make it up to you some way It’s up to you Tracey To find a place for me Forgive my foolish ways ,Tracey I know it’s been hard on you but you have to know That the beauty that’s inside of her was allowed to grow So when I look at the photographs I can see That the beauty that’s inside of her is with you Tracey

Call me call girl She looks for something all sexy and tight Could be black ,maybe it’s white She knows she’s got to look right When her lover comes to visit her at midnight She climbs the carpet on the stairs Flicks through the wardrobe for something to wear She wonders if he really cares If the people stop and stare at them When they climb in the back of a black limousine The breathing get heavy ,they begin to steam up the windows Can’t see where the’re going He moves his hand because he hasn’t got long She pushes him away but he’s much to strong The driver ignores the back seat driving They arrive at a restaurant all shiny and new She knows exactly what to do Moves over to the table for two While the band plays a moody blues song The waiter arrives on his silent feet His shirt is starched, his suit is neat Asks them what they’d like to eat They move to the rhythm of the beat He knows That the wine is working ,he’s feeling brave Anyway his ego has to be saved Because he blew it on the way there He moves his hand,she doesn’t mind He thinks he’ll make her,maybe this time But she stands there and laughs in his face They agree on a price that is much too high He feels relieved so he loosens his tie Take an elevator to the sky Pushes the key in the eye of the lock on his hotel room He’s feeling dizzy ,he’s in a spin Draws the blind and the room goes dim He can’t make her he drank too much gin She lies on the bed and laughs at him He’s a failure He had one hour left,then he fell asleep Said that she was nasty and cheap But she’d cost him well over a hundred She smiles to think how they’d met Lies back and steals one more of his cigarettes He’s a big shot from a small town

Keep it with mine Treasure this I’ll give you the other part when I return Please don’t follow me ,you may learn Dreams find hollows just to rest their weary head Peace is the property of the dead Is it enough you say I can assure you it’s all there is And if there’s more ma’be you’ll have it for a kiss It may take more than that, it may take your heart Are you really sure you want the other part Take every day as it comes The sun may rain the clouds may shine Give me your part, I won’t take your heart I’ll keep it with mine I’ll keep my part on your terms I really have no choice And when it’s time for me to leave I know you’ll have a change of voice It will last as long as the cigarette you missed While I’m loving you don’t forget to kiss Take every day as it comes The sun may rain the clouds may shine Give me your part, I won’t take your heart I’ll keep it with mine If I start to wander take your time to bring me home I will follow you through the trees and over stepping stones Find the track of broken twigs, finally reach the start To the place where I keep the other part

Wot a lot of fussin Jet black raven eyes fix steely stare on condemned men Talons sink deep, tender nerves scream Far away a bell tolls ,calls out the roll To mark the hour when justice cries out for her reward Golden strands of light weave twisted webs to bind the hands Of dangerous boys while men in robs paint morality To which lesser beings adhere and disciples fear No objections are heard in case of damnation Wot a lot of fussin What about your cousins back in Africa Heavens cry, binded hessian grows taught and sharp Severing shallow flesh,eyes bulge and limbs limp Silent feet shuffle by ,take heed of swinging feet Up above wine flows in celebration of lessons learnt Confused children cannot comprehend the empty chair The unsoiled boots that lay beneath the blackened hearth Toiled by wrinkled women, tired of child, starch white pride No more to cross the road of degradation Wot a lot of fussin What about your cousins back in Africa Present squalor in pale shadow of depravity That courts time ,sleeps with death, drinks the blood of life In dark taverns frequented by tragic souls seeking peaceful sleep Ten mouths,nineteen eyes seek satisfaction at dawn Creaking scaffold of virgin wood, deafening whispers Murmured by gathered clans, assembled by fear Who beats the dry funeral drum,treads heavily on conscious minds To serve to remind those without vision,beware of seeking sight Wot a lot of fussin What about your cousins back in Africa Dancing mists lay low, mimicking embers of unseasoned wood Awaiting the appointed hour with the expectation of a young bride Hesitating the arrival of her drunken demanding groom Daylight breaks through to register her disapproval of squalid deeds Secret man attired in hangman's hood to ply his trade Excited dogs,fearful cats,children do not play Stool kicked from beneath,sinew stretch like poultry feet Gallows shake but small twigs survive the tempest storm Wot a lot of fussin What about your cousins back in Africa

winter lake 05:04
Winter lake The winter lake will soon be gone The soil will dry, I will soon be moving on You may cry The floods subside, the sun will rise I will see the sadness that lies within your eyes I may cry, I may cry We’ve worked well, collected wood You know I’d stay if I could But the sun is high You may cry You’ll walk the lake when grasses grow I’ll sow the seed, you will know For the corn will dry You may sigh, you may cry Don’t you worry baby Have no fear The sun will sleep The skies will weep Winter lake reappears When harvest time is nearly done Hazy days are on the run Birds southward fly You may cry The sun is low when winter calls I’ll return when sweet rain falls From darkened skies You may cry and wonder why Don’t you worry baby Have no fear The sun will sleep The skies will weep Winter lake reappears
