Lyrics

Young Love on the Road 

Loving you 

is all I really wanna do 

Loving you 

is all I really wanna do 

(I) 

The wind blows on your face 

I see your sharp jawline 

as you stretch your hand 

out of the car window 

You close your eyelids 

and I realize I’m not young anymore

but I see you 

and I know what you’re doing to me 

Loving you 

is all I really wanna do 

Loving you 

is all I really wanna do 

(II) 

I see the naked collarbone 

under a sinking moon 

she’s sleeping in my arms 

two of us in perfect bloom 

and I forget to suffer 

I realize I’ve loved too deeply now

do I need you? 

I know what you’re doing to me 

Loving you 

is all I really wanna do 

Loving you

is all I really wanna do 

(III) 

The dreamer disappears 

she left her sad window 

she’s dancing in the dark 

crawling on hotel pillows 

and I begin to suffer 

I realize I’m lost too deeply now

how she wants me 

and this young love on the road (yes she does) 

Loving you 

is all I really wanna do 

Loving you 

is all I really wanna do

Sea Wall 

I’m walking in the midnight with you

my heart is chained inside your midnight blue

I’m walking in the midnight with you

my heart is chained inside your sea wall too 

why does my heart beat like a rain dog, baby?

why does my life keep getting 

better with you 

all day long 

could be 

could be worst 

I’m walking in the midnight with you

my heart is chained inside your sea wall too

I’m walking in the midnight with you

my heart is chained inside your midnight blue 

why does my heart beat like a rain dog, baby?

why does my life keep getting 

better with you 

all year long 

could be 

could be worst 

why does my heart beat like a rain dog, baby?

why does my life keep getting 

better with you 

all day long 

could be 

could be worst

Secrets to the Grave 

She’s got a thousand kisses

in one hundred moods

she’s got a thousand kisses in a hundred moods 

she’s got a million secrets

perfect crooked blues

she’s got a million secrets I’ll never knew 

Secrets to the grave now

Secrets to the grave now 

she’s got your afterhours

in her wall of rain 

she’s got your afterhours

in her wall of rain 

she’s got your guilty face

in her sleeping bag 

she’s got your guilty face in her sleeping bag 

take it to the grave now

blue moon in your eyes

secrets to the grave now

blue moon in your eyes 

Secrets to the grave now

Blue moon in your eyes

secrets to the grave now

blue moon in your eyes

I Can Waste the Day 

I can waste the day 

with you by my side 

I can waste the day 

do nothing but hide 

I dreamt of tomorrow 

of how you loved me yesterday

I dreamt of yesterday 

You said “I’ll find you tomorrow, sleeping on rainbows” 

I can waste the day 

til the sea fades to sky 

I can waste the day 

til your landlady dies 

Two drank soju 

fell in love

‘til the end of may

two drank soju 

now their bed sheets, immaculate

sleeping on rainbows 

blue moon on the pillows 

long moving shadows 

disappear 

finally 

empty 

finally 

sleeping 

sleeping in your 

blue 

blue hair 

blue 

blue hair 

blue

The Bed Sheets are Immaculate 

Kneeling 

looking up 

holding your knees together on a blue day 

Smiling 

like an angel with a dirty face

drinking in beauty 

in this purple noon 

with your little claws 

on my skin 

my life is beautiful 

once again 

with your little claws 

on my skin 

in this hotel room 

for ten lost days 

I would have loved you 

I would have loved you 

Raining 

cigarettes in the balcony 

homeless and happy 

together in the dawn 

with your little claws 

on my skin 

my life is beautiful 

once again 

with your little claws 

on my skin 

in this hotel room 

for ten lost days

I would have loved you

I would have loved you 

Dreaming 

two a.m. in a single bed

sleeping with beauty

the bed sheets are immaculate 

with your little claws

on my skin 

my life is beautiful

once again 

with your little claws

on my skin 

in this hotel room 

for ten lost days 

I would have loved you

I would have loved you

Walking on 19th Street 

Fell in love with you 

in your electric guitar 

fell in love with you 

in your septum piercing hanging 

fell in love with you 

when I dyed your blue hair darling

fell in love with you 

fell in love with you 

and your pink carnations hanging 

fell in love with you 

when you’re walking on 19th street 

fell in love with you 

in my recurring dream 

fell in love with you 

Oh how she kissed you then shy because 

because 

she’s never been yours 

Oh how she kissed you then

shy because 

because 

she’s never been yours

Fell in love with you 

in your electric guitar 

fell in love with you 

in your septum piercing hanging 

fell in love with you 

when you’re walking on 19th street 

fell in love with you 

fell in love with you 

fell in love with you

Shades 

You place my hand 

on your chest 

we hear your heartbeat

running around 

I’m 

looking at your 

black eyelashes 

I’ve not forgotten 

how beautiful you are 

Rain fell down in the afternoon

a kiss stolen in blue 

only from you 

I will spiral on these days

returning to haze 

to be with you 

I wear my shades down

in the afternoon 

walk these streets with you

in the afternoon 

wear my shades down 

in the afternoon 

to be with you 

again 

I am with you 

again 

I am with you 

again

You place my hand on your chest 

we hear your heartbeat running around 

I’m 

looking at your 

black eyelashes 

I’ve not forgotten how beautiful you are

Dusty Window 

Vomiting on your shoulders

screaming on a rooftop

neon lights 

reflecting on your windowpane

and your lips 

tongue and cheek 

tells me that 

‘ I want you’ 

Under a wide and starry sky

nothing behind us 

you felt 

I could die 

just right now 

and reappear 

in your dreams 

in your memory 

on your dusty window too 

Oh lord 

love me til tomorrow 

show me time isn’t borrowed

the way I see it 

we’re both lying 

or don’t 

want me in the morning

show me time isn’t learning

the way I see it 

we both are 

in your dreams 

in your memory 

on your dusty window too

Why does my mind 

circle around you 

when I’m all alone? 

why does my mind 

circle around you?

babe we are 

in your dreams 

in your memory 

on your dusty window too

Planet Earth Feels Lonely 

Planet earth feels lonely

I’m the only one 

swimming on this sea 

planet earth feels lonely

I need you 

do you need me? 

my heart is an open sea 

I dreamt 

I slept in your car 

you were driving 

some lonely highway 

with a cigarette 

in your mouth 

what a dream.. 

was that a dream? 

Planet earth feels lonely

I’m the only one 

swimming on this beach 

Planet earth feels lonely

I need you 

do you need me? 

my heart is an open sea

Sea Fades to Sky 

Saw you in the corner of my mind

Saw you in a painting 

Where the sea fades to sky 

Saw you in the corner of my mind

Saw you in a blue dream 

Where the sea fades to sky 

Saw you in the corner of my mind

Saw you in a postcard 

Where the sea fades to sky 

Saw you in a blue dream in my mind

Swimming in the middle 

Where the sea fades to sky

Goldfish Memory

Goldfish Memory

Have you forgotten
How it feels like
To be young again?

Have you forgotten
How it feels like
To be loved again?

Out of School

She sat smoking
Lost in blue
Blue as the ocean
Nothing to do

People Passing
We’re out of school
Nowhere my darling
I’m hanging with you again
Are you lost
Again?

Friday on my mind
Taking all my time
Knowing you’re leaving
I hang in the line

Seascape passing
We’re out of school
Nowhere my darling
I’m hanging with you again
Are you lost
Again?

Drown me on your river
Because in my mind
You’ll dance with me

til the end of the line

Blue river
to tanza
Pink carnation on your mind

She sat smoking
Lost in Blue
Blue as the river
Nothing to kill
Seascape passing
We’re out of school
Nowhere my darling
I’m hanging with you again
Are you lost
Again?
Girl in Kimono

She’s a wild thing
In a french maid strap
She’s a wild thing
In a heart-shaped swimming pool
She’s the wild one
That you keep on dreaming of
She’s a wild thing
Girl in kimono

I’m an old dog
Still hanging on your door
I’m and old dog
Looking for love

She’s a wild one
She’s a silk-gown maiden
She’s a wild one
in Monet’s sky

and I’ll kiss the past good-bye
but I’ll look for you, every other day
and I’ll follow you in a coma
but I won’t be there on your birthday

She’s wild thing
la-la-la-la-la

In the City, After Midnight

Shadows of two people
in the city
after midnight
when its blue outside

In the city
after midnight
til the dawn
I should be with you

Smoking on your window
in the city
after midnight
til its blue outside

In the city
after midnight
til the dawn
I should be with you

From the Rear View Mirror
A Love Like Yours

Looking at you
From the rear view mirror of this lost highway
Sunglasses, sleepy eyes
and your favorite nose ring

Well I really like your face
and I really like your mind
Yes I’m right here for your soul
But can a love like yours be mine?
Stolen kisses
Sleep psychosis, but I’m
Breathing on your fishnet stockings
Asking for love
No one’s listening
Because she’s
Jumping all over the bed

Well I really like your face
and I really like your mind
Yes I’m right here for your soul
But can a love like yours be mine?

Anywhere With You

I’ll go
Anywhere with you

I’ll go
Anywhere with you

I’ll go
Anywhere with you

I’ll go
Anywhere with you

I’ll go
Anywhere with you

What’s wrong
With madness?
That night

in an empty street

I held you

You’re the one with the big and beautiful dream
Hoping you don’t get stuck with me

I’ll go
Anywhere with you

I’ll go
Anywhere with you

I’ll go
Anywhere with you

I can breathe again
My mouth rests on your neck
and I sleep
for the first time
Yes I sleep
for the first time

I’ll go
Anywhere with you

I’ll go
Anywhere with you

I’ll go
Anywhere with you

Anywhere with you
Anywhere with you
Anywhere with you

Deep Sink

She kiss you
and your day begins
Now you want to be
Around her
Slash your wrists
You’ll see
If she wants you
Taste her tongue in your mouth
You’re in deep sink now

She’s looking at herself
In the mirror
She’s alone
On a quiet day
Does she stop to say
Yes, I want you?
Forget what you know
You’re in deep sink Now

I walk the streets in the midnight with you
Two of us in a parking lot
Like you loved me too
and in the naked light I saw the tip of your tongue
You said
“Only you know what you’ve become”

She kiss you
When your day is done
She’s got nothing to say
but she holds you
Now she stops
To say
Yes
I want you
Call this love
You’re in deep sink now

Recurring Dream

Darling
Do you remember
I loved you in the dead of the night
I know you
Like a recurring dream
In a hotel room window
Kissing
I met you in a terrible year
I loved in the midnight rain
Oh I want it all just the same

Darling
Do you remember
I loved you when you’re losing your mind
I know you
Like a recurring dream
Driving to the sea wall at night

and my days
revolved around you
and your days
revolved around me
what can I say?
its just a recurring dream

and your days
revolved around me
and my days
revolved around you
what can I say?
its just a recurring dream

Death of a Traveller

I
travel through the night
Thinking of the things
We could do tomorrow
What’s on the other side?
All I see mist
Mourn my departure
I’ve nowhere else to go
I’m just in time
To be where you want me

You
Sleeping on your bed
The golden garbage comes
Kissing you again
I want to end my life
but I am where you want me

Are you awake?
Are you awake?
Are you awake?
I love you

Are you awake?
Are you awake?
Are you awake?
I want you

Everybody else is complaining about their lives
Me and you, we’re eating cake at four a. m.
Everybody else is drowning in their own sorrow
Me and you, we kiss each other’s collarbone
Take Care of Our Dogs

Tied on a string
For a very long time
A love that’s mine
A love that’s mine
Old friends
Walking in the night
Hiding in the light
Sleeping in doorways

I’ll always be thinking of you
I’ll always be thinking of you

Songs from : ‘Water from the Creek’

Naked at Three

She’s a dreamer
She doesn’t sleep
A terrible liar
She doesn’t believe
She’s hanging onto
The sound of the sea
Out in the window
She’s naked at three

Not in control
What does solitude mean?
She’s walking a straight line
It’s harder to see
Mist in my eyes
And rain on my feet
Nowhere to run
She whispered to me

I’m just passing through
I’m just passing through

Troubles will find their way on your door
Your heart will remember
You’ve been here before

Carry the stones or crucify me
No one remembers
You’re naked at three

I’m just passing through

I’m just

dying too

Midnight Talk

Illustrated books
And friendly dogs
Sea vistas
Smiling faces of strangers

Big bright youth
Visual memory
Of Salty Lips
And Handwritten poems

Our train of thoughts
Coincide
Like you are dreaming with me
And your midnight talk
Is all I have
At the end of the day

Wine stains
On tablecloth
You hear the sound
The overflowing bathtub
Lacey underwear
In a dim-lit room
You feel the rain
Falling on the rooftop

And you taste it, so
You’re rushing fast
Like you got nothing to lose
And your midnight smoke
Is all I have
At the end of the day

Recurring Dream

Darling
Do you remember?
I loved you in the dead of the night
I know you

Like a recurring dream
In a hotel room window
Kissing
I met you in a terrible year
I loved you in the midnight rain
Oh I want it all Just the same

Darling
Do you remember?
I loved you when you’re losing your mind
I know you
Like a recurring dream
Driving to the sea wall at night
And my days
Revolve around you
And your days
Revolve around me

What can I say?
Its just a recurring dream

And your days
Revolve around me
And my days
Revolve around you

What can I say?
Its just a recurring dream

Two Weeks

I saw a vision of you
A portrait that I can remember
Mixed in colors of blue
Running so wild just to get there

All in a day
Leaving my sorrows completely
I see the ocean
Chained to the sky
You jumped from my window
And you said ‘Try’

I saw a vision of you
Two of us hiding in leather
You’re the waking light
Gone too soon
And I’m the only one who remembers

The house left empty
Two weeks of love at the beach
The wind blew her hair
The ropes that tie her are released

Don’t carry all the weight
Lean on my shoulder and hear me
Because I see a river
Mist rolling by
Old boats are leaving a new morning light

Visiting a Zeppelin

Travelling and yawning
Waiting out the day
Blue misty ocean
Sinking in the grey

I look for you
To take me home

Dying to see it
Slowly come my way
Only few people
Sitting there to stay
You look for me
Then we come home

Foolish lines
Let’s fall in love

Its Going to Rain

Its going to rain
All weekend
So let us hide ourselves
In this place

Its going to rain
All weekend
So let us stay indoors
And let it rain

I’ll never get tired of the road home
That’s where I belong

Only One

I will not forget you
I want to remember how it feels
You’re the only one
You will live in my heart
As much as I am filled deep in your tears
You’re the only one
I am not what I seem
Are we running each other’s dream
In my memory it always seem
Its hard not to let go

I will not forget you
I want to remember you just like this
You’re the only one
You will live in my heart
As much as I am filled deep in your tears
You’re the only one

I am not what I seem
Are we running each other’s dream?
In my memory she’d always see me
Oh its hard not to let go

Water from the Creek

Water from the creek running down below
Sea light singing at the end of the road
Nothing much to say
I am longing to be with you
Running back home where we used to dream
the sea rises I am on the edge of my seat
Nothing much to say
I am longing to be with you

I have done my very best
Just to see you once again
In the town/drout
She’s searching for
The great blue sky
And the words I say
do they mean a thing
If the change I make won’t let you bring me

but I
Well I don’t know you
Then I must know

Ticketman

I woke up in a dreamless sleep
Sinking in the void
Hollowed by these lonesome tears
Breathing nothing but joy
I stood by and I saw it clear
Asking nothing but peace
In the morning I will hear
See there’s nothing for me

Ticketman says I’ve been on the road for too long
Ticketman says I’ve been on the road for too long
Ticketman says I’ve been on the road for too long

How long will I see you?

There’s a boat that’s hanging on my window
There’s an orchard lying by the sea
In the morning I’ll begin to see you
Find me where the buses never sleeps

Ticketman says I’ve been on the road for too long
Ticketman says I’ve been on the road for too long
Ticketman says she’s been on the load for too long
How long will I see you?

Find me on your door
Keep it on your pilgrim
See me for another day in glee
Lay me on the road
Keep me on your pilgrim
Find the puzzled things you see

Bluebirds

We had to walk back home
In the early morning break of dawn
Across the highway down we rolled
Sun is almost shining

And a little bluebird sang a song
In my heart she could always belong
Across the byway down we rolled
Sun is almost shining

If I see the light hanging on my face
Would I seek to find what Im longing for dearly
If i seize the time given on my days
Would I seek to find peace?

We had to walk back home
In the early morning break of dawn
Across the highway down she rolled
Sun is almost shining

And a little bluebird she sang a song
In my heart she could always belong
Across the byway down we rolled
Sun is almost shining

If I see the light hanging on my face
Would I seek to find what Im longing for dearly
If i seize this time given on my days
Would I seek to find peace?

Songs from ‘Wild Abandon’

Cold Mountain

Cold Mountain air
Stars and ember
Nowhere else on earth I’d rather be
Rolling down the hills
Surrounded by water
Heavy rain falling on your cheek

I have found a place for us to stay
Don’t worry I won’t be leaving
It’s far away from all the things you say
Cause its hard to keep remembering
That time

Live Another Day

I took a picture of the sky
I threw my medicine and I
walked the streets and I felt the sun in my skin

I’m bald and I have been so thin
My life is changing deep within
Everyone is waiting on the other side

Mama please
Don’t cry
If I’m not staying will it be okay?
Mama please
Don’t cry
I just want to live another day

The letters underneath my bed
from the summer days that we had spent
Well I’ll be across the silhouetted way
If you would only think of me
The way that I used to be
Everyone is waiting on the other side

Wild Abandon

Sunlight passing
Through the trees
Beautiful morning
today is here

Clouds in the blue sky
Pull me in
Swallowed by darkness
Deep within

Down by the Ocean
I left my heart
Springing completely
Back to the start
Spent all my wandering
In this place
Where should I go now?
Where should I stay?

Miss April

April won’t you sing for me?
You mystify my longing
Darling in my memory
I think about that morning

Time is all we have dear
And changing is all we ever do
Here I am
Here I am

April won’t you lean on me?
The city lights are dawning
Darling in my memory
Your humming by my doorstep

Oh the bus is leaving
I am on my way to you
Here I am
Here I am

Have a little time for yourself

Don’t look back on your mistakes
Have a little time for yourself
If the clouds have turned to grey
Have a little time for yourself

I don’t need anyone
Telling me what am I supposed to do
I just need to be alone
Somewhere far away from here

Don’t look back on your mistakes
Have a little time for yourself
You can’t please them either way
Have a little time for yourself

I don’t need anyone
I don’t want you giving me the blues
I just need to be by myself
Somewhere far away from here

Different kinds of Strangers

If you see me on your doorstep
I hope you will have the heart
to be the change I’ll see the closest
Someday

If you were there when I was different
Would you know that I have learned?
All these different kinds of strangers
They return

If you see me by December
When my traveling days are gone
I’ll be waiting by the river
Either way

If you were there in my beginning
Would you know whom I have hurt?
All these different kinds of strangers
They return
