My Lighthouse

Come up to my lighthouse for I have something I wish to say / It can wait for a moment; well in fact / it can wait all day / I just wanted to bring you up here so you could have the chance to see / the beauty of this situation that / you could share with me / It may seem strange / to talk of love and then lighthouses / It's not strange / to me / Hey / All alone / you and I in our high tower / That's the way / to be / Some laugh at my lighthouse they say it's just an ivory tower / But I don't mind because I know / their envy grows by the hour / See I have a purpose up here to guide the ships upon their way / All this is mine; it could be yours too / what do you say? / It may seem strange / to talk of love and then lighthouses / It's not strange / to me / H ey / All alone / you and I in our high tower / That's the way / to be / Hehehey hey.

Wishful Thinking

When I was with this girl last night / she held me tight; it turned me on / The moon was dark and those clothes were tight / her perfume strong; it turned me on / Fleeting momenta touched in the night / then so strong but banished by the light / Her prese nce gone, memories remain / of how she kissed and turned me on / Now there's this love inside of me / I've got this love / inside of me / And I still have dull aching pain / desire to reach and touch you once again / Distractions cannot save the need / it grows once more, it grows once more / I've got this love inside of me / I've got this love / inside of me / I've got this love inside of me / I've got this love / inside of me / I have this pain inside of me / Why can't you see? Why can't you see? / I'm stranded here with no way home / Please rescue me, oh won't you rescue me? / I've got this love inside of me / I've got this love / inside of me / I've got this love inside of me / I've got this love / inside of me.

Joking Aside

I hate to complain, you know, but then again / I cannot pretend nothing's wrong / Looking at my present situation, the act cannot last for long / Viewed from outside these pursuits I might try / seem possessed of a certain allure / Now they're no longer a source of mystery my faith in them's more unsure / Now the time to play is over / Time to dispose of the lies / Time to show what's really / on my mind / Yes I'd like to turn you over / to see what's on your other side / To see if the problem's / in my m ind / In my mind / The choice is quite clear, to move on or stay here / Decision is harder to take / Reject what I have for something unstable could easily be a mistake / So I walk round the place with a smile on my face / pretending the best that I can / Hoping to lose the inclination to desire what I can't understand / And the time to play is over / Time to dispose of the lies / Time to show what's really / on my mind / Yes I'd like to turn you over / to see what's on your other side / To see if the pro blem's / in my mind / In my mind / Lalalalala lalalalala... / Now the time to play is over / Time to dispose of the lies / Time to show what's really / on my mind / Yes I'd like to turn you over / to see what's on your other side / Like to turn it over / in my mind / In my mind / In my mind / In my mind / In my mind.

Boats And Trains

Would you like to hear / about the things I fear? / About my life, and loves too? / Well why should I tell you? / If I told you a secret / you'd be sure to leak it / You couldn't keep it inside / no matter how hard you tried / On boats and trains and / an d boats and trains and / funny things and / funny things and / La la la...

Blue Girls

The blue girls that bake in the sun / Skin falls in flakes from each one / Like leaves from autumn trees / they float upon the breeze / These girls you have loved / are slowly decaying / Ah / Drying out in the sun / before your eyes / Wild stares in your face / they seem to accuse you / Oh / What have you done / to earn this prize? / The flesh underneath candy/pink / Quite a strange affair you might think / They gasp and moan for air / Beached fish on your lawn/chair / These girls you have loved / are slo wly decaying / Ah / Drying out in the sun / before your eyes / Wild stares in your face / they seem to accuse you / Oh / What have you done / to earn this prize? / Fragments left at the end of the day / A pile of blue that is soon swept away / Goodbye, bl ue girls, goodbye / Would it be too much to cry? / These girls you have loved / have slowly decayed / Ah / They dried out in the sun / before your eyes / Wild stares in your face / they seem to accuse you / Oh / What did you do / to earn this prize?

Love Love

I thought so long and suddenly I realised / I love love / I thought so long and suddenly I realised / I love love / Am I loving the girl / or the feeling I feel? / Is it just the idea that I like / or is it for real? / I recall a special friend, I invited her home for tea / And while my mother cooked a meal she was under the table with me / I thought so long and suddenly I realised / I love love / I thought so long and suddenly I realised / I love love / These ideas that I have / remain fixed in my head / Only the characters change / it's someone else there instead / One day we went down to the park to feed the ducks some bread / Foul fowls wouldn't touch a scrap so we jumped in the duckpond instead / I thought so long and suddenly I realised / I love lov e / I thought so long and suddenly I realised / I love love / Lalalalala...

In Many Ways

Hey / you're treading on my life / You're leaving marks, but that's alright / In a year or so, I'll look back and I'll smile / These things last only for a while / In many ways / this is a waste of time / what will become of it all? / I make you cry / kno w you in crowded streets / not what I wanted at all / Then / what else could I do / instead of thinking about you? / Pleasure now will justify our love / See, I even call it "love" / In many ways / there's nothing I'd rather do / one kiss makes sense of i t all / And what's to come? / Let's just not think about it, it might never happen at all.

Looking For Life

Sure you had something to hide / I took your bag and looked inside / I was looking for life / Nothing inside but memories / the same as those I keep with me / I'm still looking for life / Yes I'm looking for life / Yes I'm looking for life / There's more to love than holding hands / but I think that we both understand / it's part of looking for life / I thought so long I couldn't think / but thought was what was hindering me / and now I'm looking for life / Yes I'm looking for life / Yes I'm looking for l ife / Yes I'm looking for life / Yes I'm looking for life / Yes I'm looking for life / Yes I'm looking for life / I'm looking for life / I'm looking for life.
