Please don't cry
For the ghost in the storm outside
They'll not invade this sacred shrine
Nor infiltrate your mind
My life down I will lie
If the bogeyman should try
To play tricks on your sacred mind
To tease, torment and tantilize
Waring shadows loom
A piano plays in an empty room
There'll be blood on the (cleaver) tonight
And when darkness lifts and the room is bright
I'll still be by your side
You'll never be alone again
As long as the hand that rocks the cradle is mine
As long as the hand that rocks the cradle is mine
Seeing shadows shimmy, die
And when the wardrobe (.....)
The sadness in your beautiful eyes
Your untouched, unspoiled, wondrous eyes
My life down I will lie
Should restless spirits try
To play tricks on your sacred mind
I once had a child and it saved my life
And I never even asked his name
I just looked into his wondrous eyes
And said never
Never never again
And all too soon I did return
Just like a moth to a flame
So rattle my bones all over the stones
Because I'm only a beggar and nobody alms
See how words recind
I'm here and here I'll stay
Together
Together we'll pray
Yuo'll never need be alone again
Your eyes
As long as the hand that rocks the cradle is mine
As long as the hand that rocks the cradle is mine
Climb upon my sunny bones ....
Feel So Different
---- -- ---------
I am not like I was before
I thought that nothing would change me
I was not listening anymore
Still you continued to affect me
I was not thinking anymore
Althought I said I still was
I'd said "I don't want anymore"
Because of bad experience
But now I feel so different
I feel so different
I feel so different
I have not seen freedom before
And I did not expect to
Don't let me forget now I'm here
Help me to help you to behold you
I started off with many friends
And we spent a long time talking
Thought they meant every word they said
But like everyone else they were stalling
And now they seem so different
They seem so different
They seem so different
I should have hatred for you
But I do not have any
And I have always loved you
Oh you have taught me plenty
The whole time I'd never seen
All you had spread before me
The whole time I'd never seen
That all I'd need was inside me
Now I feel so different
I feel so different
I feel so different.
I Am Stretched On Your Grave
- -- --------- -- ---- -----
I am stretched on your grave
And will lie there forever
If your hands were in mine
I'd be sure we'd not sever
My apple tree my brightness
It's time we were together
For I smell of the earth
And am worn by the weather
When my family thinks
That I'm safe in my bed
From night until morning
I am streteched at your head
Calling out to the air
With tears hot and wild
My grief for the girl
That I loved as a child
Do you remember
The night we were lost
In the shade of the blackthorn
And the chill of the frost
Thanks be to Jesus
We did what was right
And your maiden head still
Is your pillar of light
The priests and the friars
Approach me in dread
Because I still love you
My love and you're dead
I still would be your shelter
Through rain and through storm
And with you in your cold grave
I cannot sleep warm
So I'm stretched on your grave
And will lie there forever
If you hands were in mine
I'd be sure we'd not sever
My apple tree my brightness
It's time we were together
For I smell of the earth
And am worn by the weather.
Three Babies
----- -----
Each of these
My three babies
I will carry with me
For myself
I ask no one else will be
Mother to these three
And of course
I'm like a wild horse
But there's no other way I could be
Water + feed
Are not tools that I need
For the thing that I've chosen to be
In my soul
My blood + my bones
I have wrapped your cold bodies around me
The face on you
The smell of you
Will always be with me
Each of these
My three babies
I was not willing to leave
Though I tried
I blasphemed + denied
I know they will be returned to me
Each of these
My babies
Have brought you closer to me
No longer mad like a horse
I'm still wild but not lost
From the thing that I've chosen to be
And it's 'cos you've thrilled me
Silenced me
Stilled me
Proved things I never believed
The face on you
The smell of you
Will always be with me.
The Emperor's New Clothes
--- --------- --- -------
It seems like years since you held the baby
While I wrecked the bedroom
You said it was dangerous after sunday
And I knew you loved me
He thinks I just became famous
And that's what messed me up
But he's wrong
How could I possibly know what I want
When I was only twenty-one?
And there's millions of people
To offer advice and say how I should be
But they're twisted
And they will never be any influence on me
But you will always be
You will always be
If I treated you mean
I really didn't mean to
But you know how it is
And how a pregnancy can change you
I see plenty of clothes that I like
But I won't go anywhere nice for a while
All I want to do is just sit here
And write it all down and rest for a while
I can't bear to be in another city
One where you are not
I would return to nothing without you
If I'm your girlfriend of not
Maybe I was mean
But I really don't think so
You asked if I'm scared
And I said so
Everyone can see what's going on
They laugh 'cos they know they're untouchable
Not because what I said was wrong
Whatever it may bring
I will have my own policies
I will sleep with a clear conscience
I will sleep in peace
Maybe it sounds mean
But I really don't think so
You asked for the truth and I told you
Through they're own words
They will be exposed
They've got a severe case of
The emperor's new clothes.
Black Boys On Mopeds
----- ---- -- ------
Margret thatcher on t.v.
Shocked by the deaths that took place in bejing
It seems strange that she should be offended
The same orders are given by her
I've said this before now
You said I was childish + you'll say it now
"remember what I told you
If they hated me they will hate you"
England's not the mythical land of madame george + roses
It's the home of police who kill black boys on mopeds
And I love my boy + that's why I'm leaving
I don't want him to be aware that there's
Any such thing as grieving
Young mother down at smithfield
5 am looking for food for her kids
In her arms she holds three cold babies
And the first word that they learned was "please"
These are dangerous days
To say what you feel is to dig your own grave
"remember what I told you
If you were of the world they would love you"
England's not the mythical land of madame george + roses
It's the home of police who kill blacks boys on mopeds
And I love my boy + that's why I'm leaving
I don't want him to be aware that there's
Any such thing as grieving.
Nothing Compares 2U
------- -------- --
It's been seven hours + fifteen days
Since u took your love away
I go out every night + sleep all day
Since u took your love away
Since u been gone I can do whatever I want
I can see whomever I choose
I can eat my dinner in a fancy restaurant
But nothing
I said nothing can take away these blues,
'cos nothing compares
Nothing compares 2 u
It's been so lonely without u here
Like a bird without a song
Nothing can stop these lonely tears from falling
Tell me baby where did I go wrong
I could put my arms around every boy I see
But they'd only remind me of you
I went to the doctor guess what he told me
Guess what he told me
He said girl u better have fun
No matter what u do
But he's a fool
'cos nothing compares
Nothing compares 2 u
All the flowers that u planted mama
In the back yard
All died when u went away
I know that living with u baby was sometimes hard
But I'm willing to give it another try
'cos nothing compares
Nothing compares 2 u
Jump In The River
---- -- --- -----
The phone calls
Always left me unsure
They'd never say things of their own accord
I am preoccupied
I can't get them out of my mind
They are terrified
And if you said jump in the river I would
Because it would probably be a good idea
You're not supposed to be here at all
It's all been a gorgeous mistake
Sick one or clean one
The best one
That God ever made
When I kissed you
You didn't mind
I thought I tasted of too many cigarettes
But you tasted of wine
And I'm not going to change my mind
Just because of what they said
The worm has laid eggs in their hearts
But not in my head
(chorus)
There's been days like this before you know
And i liked it all
Like the times we did it so hard
There was blood of the wall
And if you said jump in the river I would
Because it would probably be a good idea
You Cause As Much Sorrow
--- ----- -- ---- ------
I'm full of good intentions
Like I never was before
It's too late for prevention
But I don't think it's too late for the cure
So you call in your minions
See what you can find
Night time or morning
These hands are sticky but I don't mind
Why must you always be around?
Why can't you just leave it be?
It's done nothing so far but destroy my life
You cause as much sorrow dead
As you did when you were alive
I never said I was though
That was everyone else
So you're a fool to attack me
For the image that you built yourself
It just sounds more vicious
Then I actually mean
I really am soft tender + sweet
Why must you always be around?
Why can't you just leave me be?
You've done nothing so far but destory my life
You cause as much sorrow dead
As you did when you were alive
(repeat)
The Last Day Of Our Acquaintance
--- ---- --- -- --- ------------
This is the last day of our acquaintance
I will meet you later in somebody's office
I'll talk but you won't listen to me
I know what your answer will be
I know you don't love me anymore
You used to hold my hand when the plane took off
Two years ago there just seemed so much more
And I don't know what happened to our love
Today's the day
Our friendship has been stale
And we will meet later to finalise the details
Two years ago the seed was planted
And since then you have taken me for granted
But this is the last day of our acquintance
I will meet you later in somebody's office
I'll talk but you won't listen to me
I know your answer already
(repeat)
I Do Not Want What I Haven't Got
- -- --- ---- ---- - ------- ---
I'm walking through the desert
And I am not frightened although it's hot
I have all that I requested
And I do not want what I haven't got
I have learned this from my mother
See how happy she has made me
I will take this road much further
Though I know not where it takes me
I have water for my journey
I have bread + I have wine
No longer will I be hungry
For the bread of life is mine
I saw a navy blue bird
Flying way above the sea
I walked on + I learned later
That this navy blue bird was me
I returned a paler blue bird
And this is the advice they gave me
"you must not try to be too pure
You must fly closer to the sea"
So I'm walking through the desert
And I am not frightened although it's hot
I have all that I requested
And I do not want what I haven't got
