LYRICS

You Will Be Free

Afraid to fall

Afraid to fall

Maybe you’ll fall too deep

Maybe you’ll fall too deep

 

Fate in your hands

Fate in your hands

Be gentle be gentle with me

Be gentle be gentle with me

 

Heart in your mouth

Heart in your mouth

Holding your hands with its teeth

Holding your hands with its teeth

 

And oh, how I love you

And oh, how you echo me

And oh, how I wish to keep you

And oh, draw you near to me

But oh, I know you will be free

But oh, I know you will be free

 

Brave little one

You fought to keep your mother at your feet

Brave little one

Now it is your maker you must meet

 

And oh, how I love you

And oh, how you mirror me

And oh, how I wish to keep you

And oh, draw you near to me

But oh, I know you will be free

But oh, I know you will be free

Mmmm, I know you will be free

Mmmm, I know you will be free

Soft Sleeper

There is softness, as I watch you sleeping

And as you breathe in and out, tears silently creeping

For what are you now, if you’re not for keeping.

 

The one has come for you

It’s time to change the season

But without your summer breeze what are we to believe in?

For what am I now, if you’re not the reason.

 

But don’t hold my hand

If you go I’ll understand, understand, understand

I’ll understand.

True Speaker

 Well I prayed, I prayed for the words, to tell ya how I feel

None came, none came to my mind, no none came to my head

“You can’t speak from the mind girl you gotta speak from the heart”

Are the words that God said

Well he was a true, true true speaker ‘cos I’ve got a lot of heart for you.

 

For you, there ain’t no bones I need to hide

With you there ain’t no gag upon my mouth, no eyes upon the time

‘Cos I don’t wanna be alone without you by my side

And I am a true, true true speaker and I’ve got a lot of time for you.

 

And just to feel your arms in mine, is worth its weight in gold

And the eyes I have for you my dear can’t be bought nor sold

So I won’t be bargaining my love away.

 

They say we can’t be lovers, but we can be friends

And they tell me I am foolish for being awake to my dreams

Well those are the words of men who lack freedom

Of men who lack soul

Well I am a true, true true speaker and I’ve got a lot of soul for you.

 

And just to feel your arms in mine, is worth its weight in gold

And the eyes I have for you my dear can’t be bought nor sold

So I won’t be bargaining my love away.

 

I prayed, I prayed for the words, to tell ya how I feel

Well none came, none came to my mind, no none came to my head

“You can’t speak from the mind girl you gotta speak from the heart”

Are the words that God said

Well he was a true, true true speaker

Yeah he was true true true true speaker

He was true, true speaker ‘cos I’ve got a lot of heart for you.

No-one But My Best

 

In the arms of your love, I am good enough

In the arms of your love, I am good enough

Nothing more nothing less, I am no-one but my best

And I don’t wanna be anyone but my

I don’t wanna be anyone but my

Don’t wanna be anyone…But my own.

 

Through the storm, through the haze, I’ve been lifted I’ve been raised

Through the storm, through the haze, I’ve been lifted I’ve been raised

I’ve been lost I’ve been found I have lived and I have drowned

And I have not anything without your

I have not anything without your

I have not anything….Without your heart

Heart, heart, heart, heart, heart, heart, heart,

Heart, heart, heart, heart, heart, heart, heart

 

I am a sweet child of God I’ve got nothing up front I’ve got nothing in store but I’m walking, the mile.

 

I am a sweet child of God I’ve got nothing up front I’ve got nothing in store but I’m walking, the mile.

 

I am a sweet child of God I’ve got nothing up front I’ve got nothing in store but I’m walking, the mile.

 

I am a sweet child of God I’ve got nothing up front I’ve got nothing in store but I’m walking.

Lines

 

Frozen lines we walk just to prove ourselves to the other ones

And the other ones walk the same line just to prove themselves to us

And I feel like I’m trying to race myself to the finish line

And I don’t like the way this is messing with my mind

 

I don’t know why we feel like we’ve always got something to prove

Seems to me that life is about more than just clocking up the things that we do

And I feel like I’m trying to beg my way into feeling good

And my whole life is a waste if I’m not doing what everyone should

 

And oh divine, these hours are mind but I can’t seem to give them my time.

 

(Improv)

 

I will be waiting for mine, my whole life

I will be waiting for mine, my whole life

I will be waiting for mine, if I don’t stop.

Hunger

 

I’m hungry for you

I’m hungry for you

Got a need to take a bite out of you

 

I’m in a fantasy of you

I’m in a fantasy of you

Won’t you please make my dreams the true

 

Burning like fire I am inside

Yearning desire in these chains I am tied

And it’s all because of you

And it’s all because of you

 

I’m thirsty for you

I’m thirsty for you

Got a need to take a sip out of you

 

I’m trapped in a world of you

I’m trapped in a world of you

And I can’t see what I am to do

 

Burning like fire I am inside

Yearning desire in these chains I am tied

And it’s all because of you

And it’s all because of you

Love has spoken

Has spoken it’s words to me

When I set my eyes, my mind, my heart, on thee

This Old Skin

 

Lately, I’ve been draggin’ my feet, all across this town

I’ve been duckin’ my head, to push on through these crowds

And I’ve been holding it down

I’ve been holding it in

But I’m tired of holding it in down

I’m tired of pretending

 

So I’m gonna take these teeth off my tongue

And try to say what I mean for once

And maybe, maybe, I can live some.

 

Crazy, is how I feel, most of the time

And I don’t feel, like your head fits with mine

So I’ve been holding it down

I’ve been holding it in

But I’m tired of holding it down

I’m tired of livin’ in this’a this’a this’old skin

 

So I’m gonna take these teeth off my tongue

And tried to say what I mean for once

And maybe, maybe, I can live some.

 

And if I should die today, then what would I say I’d done?

Would I have lived a lie, just to please all the other ones?

Well I have to live with me constantly

So I better like what I see.

Is It Love

 

I wait

I wait

Yeah I wait, for you.

 

And I ache

Yeah I ache

Yeah I ache, for you to wait for me too.

 

But you, your love comes in waves

And I, can’t seem the shore for days after

Is it love is it love is it love that we have

When we beg when we steal when we borrow

When we grab.

 

Like gold

Yeah like gold

Yeah like gold

I hunt you down to feed the voided soul

 

But I know

Yes I know

When I pay my fears it only leaves me cold

 

But how, how do I leave the chase?

When I find myself none, I find myself none to replace

Is it love is it love is it love that we make

When we beg when we steal when we borrow

Then we break.

 

(Musical Interlude)

 

And I have felt like nothing for far too long

And I have needed something for far too long

 

But you won’t find in your seeking

You will find seeking in your seeking

Yeah that’s right

 

And you won’t have in your wanting

You have wanting in your wanting

Yeah that’s right

 

And it’s love it is love it is love that we need

‘Cos only love only love only love can feed.
