My Only Tie

Watching old friends
Do better things
Without any strings
Get you again

Hmmn...........Hmmn.........

People abroad
Say come make it yours
Do it to them
Before they do it to you
I'm not sure.....I'm not sure.....

My only tie...........My only tie...........My only tie
Is you,Only you,Only you
My only tie.............My only tie..............My only tie...
Is you,Only you,Only you

 

Blue Horse 

Take me over again,That's alright on the waysSee me shine when I swim,Blue Horse
There's a mountain ahead,We can lie and get some rest
We'll brush the tail and we'll dress,Blue horse

We'll go home...Soon..We'll go home
We'll go home...Soon..We'll go home

Daddy the sunshines all gone,And its dark in the sky
Put me on top let me ride,Blue horse

We'll go home...Soon..We'll go home
We'll go home...Soon..We'll go home
We'll go home...Soon..We'll go home
We'll go home...Soon..We'll go home

Blue Horse.....Blue Horse.....Blue Horse.....Blue Horse


The Further North You Go

See me see places
See me see news
See me see punters
See me see you

See Dundee nothing like it
See Paris its all trees
See Dundee nothing like it
See me i'll let you see

The further north you go
The rain comes harder down i'm told
The people seem so friendly there
They really seem so warm
If theres a river let me see
If theres a special place to be
I'd love to know the further north you go

See trains awfully long journey though
See me I love to think
See you where do you come from
Ahh well I like you just the same

The futher north you go
The buildings show and the trees don't show
The people seem to let you know they're only saying no
If theres a place for me its here
Its where I feel i'm really needed
Your really needed the further north you go


The Undeveloped Heart

My friend David told me
The heart beats like a dream
Down there at the railway station
The Lights are turning green

That little black-robed Franciscan priest
Struts down  to ???????????
Tips his hat at all the North Americans
And dreams the dream of the argonauts

We know the truth of the undeveloped heart
Poplars on the Seinne and Sunset Boulevard
The noise that can drive a love asunder
Sometimes your dreams can leave you under

We go climbing down myriad flights of stairs
Blowing off the heat and dust
Stetch our romantic souls
To cover the wunderlust

At midnight in some strange city
Black-burned and medieval
Shiver inside our paper thin raincoats
And the silence that knows no evil

We know the truth of the undeveloped heart
Poplars on the Seinne and Sunset Boulevard
The noise that can drive a love asunder
Sometimes your dreams can leave you under

The heart can be a lonely hunter


Cresswell Street

You take comfort from your window
you take refuge in the sky
you can't bare to see the ocean
falling, falling

If your
over there i'm over here
if your
over there i'm over here

Met you on the street on tuesday
stood like statues in the snow
pushed your head back it was melting in your eyes
there was a tear
I don't know

If your
over there i'm over here
looking
If your
over there i'm here
across the street
If your
over there i'm over here


I Love You

She walked her down to the long,wet grass
Then she slipped out of her raincoat
She held her softly till the wind had passed
Then she put her down so slowly

Underneath a cotton white sky
The water splashed the blanket
Then she pulled her hands away
And let the river take what she'd carried

She whispered
I love you
I love you
I love you

She ran back up the road she'd always take
And then she stopped to catch her breath
There in the distance the traffic honked and roared
The evening sky was gold and red

She whispered
I love you
I love you
I love you


Earth A Little Lighter 

When you walk across the earth,Do the horses hear you first
And lift their heads as if concerned,That something has occurred 

To this world.............To this world

You waved me from your car,You looked so changed I couldn't wave back
Life past in a blur,I never really knew you at all

Hmmm........................Hmmm........................Hmmm

Maybe I saw you that time,Because you burned a little brighter
On your way out of this world,To make the earth a little lighter.

To make...... the earth..... a little .....lighter

Shining ships on far off plains,That head for ports unnamed
Stand more chance of being tamed,Than a life finally unchanged

To make the earth a little lighter,To make the earth a little lighter


I'm Sure Buddy Would Know

I'm sure Buddy would know
but I can't ask him
what picture you'd go to
given the choice of things
things not being as they are now
i'm sure Buddy would know
if I could phone him, up

Where is he now
where is he now
is he with you
with you
is he with you

I could find out so easily
I could find out so easily
I could find out so easily

I'm sure Buddy would know
I'm sure Buddy would know
I could find out so easily
so easily
so easily


Here's Singer

Here's singer
here's singer
heres' singer give it out

Here's singer
heres singer
here's singer give out again

Given love
given life
given faith what would it be

He's bitter
he's bitter
thats why he's a star to you and me

He loved the last
I loved and lost
but he loved being in love the most

given it to keep
and time to sleep
and just maybe dream what would he be 

He's ours
hes's ours
he's (?)

Those words
are dangerous
the kind of things you don't see

Given sight
and the ways of life
sometimes you see what can it be

A normal heart
could find it hard
not to forgive what it could be

Here' singer
Here's singer
Here's singer
Here's singer
Heres singer


On The Line

Oh the line goes on and on
Forty years
And far beyond
Oh the line that working line
Stretches from
Where the world began

Cause we were on the line
Yes we were on the line
And now we stand together
On the line

We stand on the line
So you'd better not cross that line
Cause we will not be broken
When we stand on the line


Ash Wednesday

Where would I be,Would I be standing right here
We've had such a cruel death would we be as good as to remember a life
Would you never live the way that you did would your birth be enough
Was it just someones hard labour,A few days struggle then oblivion

And what about Peter that rock of a saint he'd never taken the hook
And kept on fishing and missing the catch but hitting the sea
And Margaret praying for the army and the souls like you and me

Lost somewhere out there in erternity,Wondering what it all means
Would it be the same,Just imagining
Not just holy water but an ocean
Not just touching but diving right in

Is this a curse it just makes things worse for the living
Struggling and burned and one calender month before giving
Giving up the ghost of Christmas past
Valentines post and easter mondays past

Could this dying be done,Would love be so concerned
Not just in starting but in ending
Not just in falling but decending
Decending
