Try not to be afraid, so many things can happen
Nothings ever quite as bad as it might appear
I'll give you all I got, You know I can protect you
And try and stop you shedding even one more single tear

Stop your tears from falling,
The trail they leave is very clear for all to see at night
All to see at night.

And as the fog gets clearer
Shadows in your eyes appear
The weak gets strong and nearer
And condensation tears are brushed away

I rolled on, the sky grew dark
I put the pedal down to make some time
There's something good waitin' down this road
I'm pickin' up whatever's mine

And it's a hitchhike a hundred miles.
I'm a rag-a-muffin child.
Pointed finger-painted smile.
I left my shadow waiting down the road for me a while.

In a town without a name, in a heavy downpour
Thought he passed his own shadow by the backstage door
Like a trip through the past, to that day in the rain
And that one guitar made his whole life change

Only those in love would know
What a town without pity can do

For all time
Looking for something to remind me
Something out the corner of my eye
Why can't I feel it?
Why should I try?

He doesn't look a thing like Jesus
But he talks like a gentleman
Like you imagined when you were young

An open door, an extended hand,
What can I say, I understand
She talks like a bird yet she walks like a man
She'll be here tonight, I understand
She hunts in a pack yet she ends up alone

Ripped and raw, her voice at the door
Walks in, expecting him, finds something more
Says maybe these boys want to do some talking


[The one song of theirs that I outright loathe...]

Father Christmas, give us some money
Don't mess around with those silly toys
We'll beat you up if you don't hand it over
We want your bread so don't make us annoyed
Give all the toys to the little rich boys

She lived on a curve in the road
An old tar paper shack
On the south side of the town
On the wrong side of the tracks

Why don't we do it in the road?

No one will be watching us
Why don't we do it in the road?

One day I noticed the world at my feet
Next day comes and it rolls into the street
Gathering speed, paying no heed
That made me bleed until I was blue

But you know I never wanted to-ah, you know, I did it just for you

Everybody's talkin' at me, I don't hear a word they're sayin'
Only the echoes of my mind
And I won't let you leave my love behind

And deep beneath the rolling waves
In labyrinths of coral caves
An echo of a distant time
Comes willowing across the sand
And everything is green and submarine.

You don't do anything for me
You were sometimes hard to find
You were never safe to be with, then

Well I could be boarding an aircraft
With a bomb concealed in somebody's briefcase
And my body will spread through the heavens, across the sky
And my ashes will fall through the cloudburst

Oh we will all char together when we char.
And let there be no moaning of the bar.
Just sing out a te deum
When you see that ICBM
And the party will be "come as you are."

It's Christmas at Ground Zero
There's panic in the crowd
We can dodge debris while we trim the tree
Underneath a mushroom cloud

Crowded streets, busy feet hustle by you
Downtown shoppers Christmas is nigh
There he sits all alone on the sidewalk
Hoping that you won't pass him by

Freezin' rests his head on a pillow made of concrete again
Oh Feelin' maybe he'll see a little betters any days
Oh hand out faces that he sees come again ain't that familiar
Oh dark grin he can't help when he's happy he looks insane

Give me therapy, I'm a walking travesty,
But I'm smiling at everything.
Therapy, you were never a friend to me,
You can take back your misery.

Every thread of creation is held in position
by still other strands of things living.
In an earthly tapestry hung from the skyline
of smouldering cities so gray and so vulgar,
as not to be satisfied with their own negativity
but needing to touch all the living as well.

In this violent sea

I look to the sea.
Reflections in the waves spark my memories.
Some happy, some sad.
I think of childhood friends and the dreams we had.

There's a girl I know who makes me feel so good.
And I wouldn't live without her, even if I could.
They call her Valleri.
I love my Valleri.
