How long would you wait before you need to make a change, would you wait as long as our bridge before it fell. How much can your river bend before your river breaks, is it as strong as the stone around your well. You've had all that you can take, You're nights are longer than your days. You've made all that you could make, now nothings gonna get in your way. So you'll pack up and leave for Paris, even though you don't speck a word. Drink up the famous love songs, the dresses and the pearls. Pack up and leave for Paris and it just might work, to heal a broken heart that only hurts. If you let your guard down, you could see how high it was, but you'd never let you arms take the risk. If you drain the water well, you could see how deep it was, but your wells no coins to trade a wish You've had all that you can take, You're sun is a cold November day. You've made all that you could make, now nothings gonna get in your way. So you'll pack up and leave for Paris, even though you don't speck a word. Drink up the famous love songs, the dresses and the pearls. Pack up and leave for Paris and it just might work, to heal a broken heart that only hurts.

Sweet love come and find me I'm hiding under the flower's bed With this patchwork pepperd Blanket that can not keep me warm or safe from harm From a chemical reaction, blossoming in tune Fueling up the fire, of a broken honeymoon the smoke is a distraction, in purple red and blue smothers my desires, its filling up the room Sweet love you didn't tell me stood behind your careful callus calm well i made my bed in your burning house but you couldn't keep me warm From a chemical reaction, blossoming in tune Fueling up the fire, of a broken honeymoon the smoke is a distraction, in purple red and blue smothers my desires, its filling up the room Let me down bellow the undergrowth I'm counting up the days so still and quiet-full your dreaming up a storm to watch a weathered warmth wrap around your eyes

Brother Brother where do you think your going, down that long dark dusty road alone your mother warned you watch those cobbled corners they'll trip you up and bring you down well you got out from where the lions slept in worn shoes untied and unkept and you won't forget when a rock and a hard place met Sister Sister what do you think your doing running round making time for the carefree cats did you hear did you hear your mothers coming to pick you up and take you home well you got out from where the lions slept slowly slowly taking quiet steps and you won't forget when a rock and a hard place met oh my head oh my head is too and throwing and it can't be stopped nor it be helped I'm a leopard left without my spots with my stomach tied up in knots but its all Ive got i wonder on and i wonder off well you got out from where the lions slept in worn shoes untied and unkept and you took quiet steps and I'm sure you won't forget just yet when a rock and a hard place met

Its in the way the move its where your eyes choose not to gaze forgive for goodness sake its what you make not what you take Anyone can see you mean nothing to me your vicious your vile, with your picture frame smile don't forsake me baby, I'm the way that god made me anyone can see we're not meant to be my lonely valentine I know I'm not who your missing and I know your lips aren't mine for kissing Anyone can see you mean nothing to me your vicious your vile, with your picture frame smile don't forsake me baby, I'm the way that god made me anyone can see we're not meant to be my lonely valentine So call me up, say you want me back its another day that i will never have but I'd love to wash the colors through to change this endless blue

on the tail on the cusp of pulling through these endless days with their routines and aching tunes I saw an angel I still remember what she said to err is human forgive forget forgive divine and we stand our ground we won't let our rolling hills unwind its an upward battle but it kind'a makes you feel alive for those who alter who blow hot air at heavy times who answer questions with fickle hearts and fickle minds a small taste of honey for growing pains and thinning lips the angel left me with knowing eyes for a knowing face we're Numbers and Letters we're diming bulbs to be replaced we wont change our plans cause we'll never make them But these day are ours we'll do what we want to swim with the sharks and fill our mouths with water pick up the cans and stand them up just to shot them down this worlds second hand and we'll bite the palm that feeds it I turned a corner turned a phrase and paid my debts then I saw the angel get as drunk as she could get talking in toungs I still remember what she said when your romancing and acting younger than your tounge there will be second chances a crown of thorns and bleeding thumbs when shadows thicken its hard to see what's left behind

Nothings wrong nothing at all feet on the ground back off the wall with a head that's full of stars When nothing is said and nothing is shown try not to let on the pains that grows in a head that's full of scars I never got to see your face I'm still alone but in a different place taking your turn ready or not everything burns when the fire gets hot and your left with cold and black I had that dream where the brakes can't stop my car I was head over heals with teeth in the wheels spinning and you want me back

Look into the eyes of winter fall into the arms of night whisper in the ear of promise would you stay with me till the light I'm calling you name Struggle with a cold tomorrow wrestle with lilac time dig into the soil of solace and bury the years of decline

She thought it would never stop as she hid in the grandfather clock with eyes that were painted on she'd wait till the wolf was gone she held tight a safety pin and remembered how her mother would sing when she, she lost her wedding ring in rain together the woodsman and me cut down the tallest tree built up a fire soon as hot as an engine room I held tight an axe to grind and remembered how mother would find her way when she lost her wedding ring in rain Don't go outside again the wolf will gobble you up and swallow you whole here the wolf hunting the boys who cried his name too many times that voice is booming still like thunder from the windowsill these walls need a remedy to clean out the enemys the house held the kitchen tight the heart of a home until that night oh how the chopping board would sing Don't go outside again the wolf will gobble you up and swallow you whole here the wolf hunting the boys who cried his name too many times (with a belly full of stones)

Lets fly away in a pea green boat with a good song is what we need to row and lovingly stitched in you coat we'll dance by the light of the moon Feel a warm friend when a record spins true friends let the crackle in and propped up by a table sins bottled up with the Cheshire grin and the key doesn't fit the lock Lets fly away in a rocket machine go through the earth and in between the sea show all the people what they can not see now their eyes are green with greed hear a marching band in a rose parade with a cliche caught in a small refrain for all the boys lives they couldn't save hear the wind cry out their names and the key doesn't fit the lock lets fly away and never go back you thoroughly cover up our tracks we'll burn our books and our photographs spend the night as bride and groom a good mind finds a dream to sow finds what to do and where to go even the back seat bullys know they could dance by the light of the moon and the key doesn't fit the lock

You fell like from a chestnut tree conker shining up at me its been too long, I'd forgotten how it feels when you find one Do i dare to reach and break the seal take you from the land cause i long to touch and i long to feel hold you in my hand my timing wasn't perfect both arms frozen and off set from the road you turn to go it felt like the wheels had left their spokes Ive tried to turn and I'll try to turn but I'm nothing without my wheels I'll try to learn and Ive tried to learn but i hate the way it feels making shadows from the dark an owl to the barn departs leaving soon leaving fast leaving nothing only the nights remarks no white from a tunnel of black no time for the holes or the cracks no cross on a penny-less map no morning with a moon out to catch with the lights and the movement it made know clear coherence i thought this must be an illusion my eyes are playing games and I'm losing and I'll run... running after you
