‘Your Face Is As Mean As Your Life Has Been…’

Nothing can ever take away

These songs that saved my life

But watching you now

Though you can still wow

That tie really is a crime!


‘Handsome Devil’

There
once
was a
light

That
shone
in my
life

But
now it’s
sadly
gone out

For
I have
since
found

Heroes
let
you
down

Of that
there
can be
doubt

‘So I’ve made my mind up
I must live my life alone
And though it’s not the easy way
I guess I’ve always known
I’d say goodbye to love…’

Well, can you feel it?’

“And so, I checked all the registered historical facts
And I was shocked into shame to discover
How I’m the 18th pale descendant
Of some old queen or other”

‘You want it
You’ve got it
You took it all from me
My cheque book, my wallet
My pride and dignity…’

“And I wonder
When I sing along with you
If everything could ever feel this real forever
If anything could ever be this good again”

‘Late at night I can hear your voices
Talking shit about all my choices
You would think you’ve known me forever
Just because you know my name…’

‘Always So Lost In The Dark…’

It’s 10.15 on a Friday night and excitement builds all around.

Saturday Waits as the promise of Spidermen and Caterpillars abound.

Like all those Japanese Babies who tumbled through the gate,

I Burn for tales of Cagey Tigers, and dream of Dogs that Shake.

Then I am reminded, as I Move To The Beat,

Why you Imaginary Boys look good enough to eat.

I’m So Glad I Came. To be here On A Night Like This.

If only it could End with Just One (Strawberry) Kiss.

Yet out to The Edge Of The Green Sea I’m cast,

Wondering if this Lost and Lonely feeling will last.

‘Oh all the times I’ve tasted love
Never knew quite what I had
Little darling if you hear me now
Never needed you so bad
Spinning ’round inside my head’

Faith, Devotion And My Imaginary Boys

Each a favourite band

To have on hand

When life gets a little bit dark

For there’s nothing finer

Than a guy in eyeliner

To help mend a broken heart


Cure Mode

Enjoying
the
silence

With my
pictures
of you

Running
to your
heart to
be near

And
although
pleasures
remain

As you
fall into
my arms

Equally,
so does
the pain

To make a thousand matches
Only takes one match
To burn a thousand trees’
