In alphabetical order...  XO

 

Awake

 

Nostalgic sentiment when the rain comes

Livin’ in a daydream now don’t wake me up

Nostalgic sentment before the heartache comes

Livin’ in a daydream now don’t wake me up

 

Nostalgic sentiment when the wind blows

Livin’ in a daydream now don’t wake me up

Nostalgic sentiment when the sun shines

Livin’ in a daydream now don’t wake me up

 

Haze of daydreams

 

Sun comin’ out make it rain, make it rain

 

Suddenly I am alive again

 

 

................................................

 

Bansidhe

 

Fiery woman

Takes you out

One flash of her sword

Wild-haired, crazy battlemaiden screams like a bansidhe through the night

 

All is quiet

Stone cold grey eyes

Battle’s a brewin’

Shed a small drop

Let it roar

Let it moan

Let it rain in vain

 

Back when the dragons used to cry

There’d be a chant around the fire

Ever thankful for the night

She’d sing her soul out like a bansidhe

 

.................................................

 

 

Black Holes

 

Black holes

Recurrin’ shadows

As I lay awake at night

 

It’s keepin’ my eyes open

It’s keepin’ me from sleep

The shadows are all around

And they’re draggin’

At my feet

 

‘Til I fall down

Fall down so low

Fall down so low

I can’t fall any lower

 

It’s takin’ it’s toll

All these years passed in a day

Twenty daggers at once and forever

But I can never ever ever ever

 

Black holes

 

..............................................

 

Black Widow

 

Temptation

Sweet sensation

A cunning turn of her head

Timely look

Over the shoulder

Touch of her hand carefully executed

 

Sneaky

Little button

A brand new haircut and a

Shine on the smile

Ready

Ya get setty

Gonna see if you can

Get to him

 

Baby black widow I’ve seen you sweetheart

Darlin’ you’re the one who talks because

You love your own voice

You’ll be the death of him baby

Black widow you’ve killed them all

 

Baby black widow

 

Hangin’ off

Countless elbows

A peck on the cheek just a

Little too long

A glare to knock out the

Opposition

A knock out glare and a

Killer wink

 

Baby black widow I’ve seen your moves girlfriend

Come and claim ye prize you’ve played your cards right

Knocked down all obstacles baby

Black widow you’ve killed them all

 

Lady

Man killer

With the strut of death

Shake-a-the hips now she’s

Deadly

Stuck in their heads

 

 

..................................................

 

Catfish Stew

 

You ain’t nothin’ but a catfish

Stew in what you’ve been cookin’

Wearin’ a mask, but no-one’s lookin’

Throw out the bait, but no-one’s hookin’

Expose who you are and you’ll be bookin’

 

Who’s foolin’ who, now, who’s foolin’ who

With your list of frustrations and twist of the knife

Try and pull them through your monotonous fight

Come out from the shadows into the night

Suckin’ on your catfish stew

 

Hidden behind panes of glass

Shatter your deception

X-ray vision and a clear head

Shatter your illusion

Come out from the shadows into the light

Illuminate your bullshit

Come out from the shadows into the night

Illuminate your life

 

You ain’t foolin’ no-one

Swim away and hide

Think you’re really clever but you’re dead inside

Copy-cat creeper but you’re dead inside

 

..................................................

 

Juiced

 

What will you be expecting

Spiralling anti-climax

Higher to the lower

More and more and more and more and more

You squeeze ‘til I run dry

 

What will you be expecting

Just like drawing blood from a stone

There ain’t nothin’ left from me to you

More and more and more and more

You squeeze ‘til I run dry, yeah

 

I’ve been juiced baby

 

Ain’t you ever heard of give and take

You bled me dry

Takin’ all that I could give

You left me low to get yourself high

 

 

................................................

 

Little Battlemaiden

 

You’ve fought stupidity before

And although there were bruises

You’ve won and escaped from it all

So many times before

 

The city of love seems so tempting

But I am tempted by something

That is sometimes, only, sometimes at home

 

Little battlemaiden wield your sword

Show them all how big you can be, yeah

Little battlemaiden wield your sword

Show them all how mean you can be, yeah

 

If you already know everything then how, how can you enjoy it

Must be lonely on that mountain with only your bad attitude

And self-gratitude the only two things

Kissing you goodnight-ta

 

It’s tempting me

So I’ll wield my sword

 

Here’s a tempting opportunity to finally hear me out

You can forget about your dinner, oh

Forget about your desert, you ain’t

You ain’t gonna get it so don’t bother trying to tempt me, no

 

 

................................................

 

Malicious Delicious

 

I’m waking to your smile

I’m crashing to the pain of leaving you

I’m a girl, who’s crying very easily

And he’s dedicating a song to me

 

And I’m Malicious, Delicious, Malicious, Dear

 

He’s breaking to my smile

Shit-eating grin is all I give to you

I come unfurled in hiding from the misery

And he’s dedicating a song to me

 

The man who thought he was a boy

Now lost forever

 

 

................................................

 

Man In The Trenchcoat

 

I’m the man in the trenchcoat

 

Long time listener, watcher, lover

First time caller

Don’t hang up on me, honey

I’m your all time greatest stalker

 

The sound of your breathing why are you running, why are you running

 

I don’t need to touch you

I just want to watch you, watch you, watch you

 

No dark alleys

No seedy bars

You don’t even have to leave your house

 

I’m the man in the trenchcoat

You will never see my face

I love your femininity

I love your beauty and grace

 

You look so beautiful sleeping

I need you so much it hurts

‘Cause we’ve got something so special

 

While you’re on the line

I just wanted to tell you

I love you, love you

 

 

................................................

 

One For The Computer Nerds

 

 

Ah

Uh-huh

 

I escape my troubles

Me and a cup of tea

Wonderin’ what it is

Those strange boys see in me

 

They-a peculiah breed

I never give them  a-time of day

Always say, say they missin’ me

Any time I say I’m goin’ away

And I say

 

Yo mo fo’s ye jist don’t git it

Why’d ya think I wanna

G-g-g-give it to ya

Yo boys won’t ya leave me alone

It’s cause-a you I’m always runnin’

From the telephone

 

You don’t know me

Why won’t ye leave me the hell alone

 

I don’t go ‘round a-sayin’

Boy I’m too busy to talk to you

And a-I don’t think I

Should, should be

As important as I am to you

 

Ah

Uh-huh

It’s one for the computer nerds

Ooh those strange boys

 

And they-a peculiah breed

Wanna g-g-git their hands on my diary

Won’t somebody tell me please

What it is those boys see in me

.................................................

 

Pixies and Faeries

 

I think I wanna sleep

With the pixies and the faeries in another land

One far away from here

One far, far away one far, far one far away from us

 

My friend I think I love you

My friend I wanna wake with you in another land

One far away from here

One far, far away one far, far one far

 

And I don’t wanna die

But I’m so sick of cryin’ and I don’t wanna cry no more

 

On a sanity trip

Makin’ love to the camera

On an insanity trip

Chasin’ scotch with vodka, alright

 

................................................

 

Selkie

 

She weeps

She sighs

Then she dries her eyes

Skin’s been shed and tied up inside

 

The siren’s lies untied

She can’t deny

Selkie decides to say goodbye

 

That dark black gown she wore so well

Was held firm in that grip for all to see

She takes a step toward the water

And embraces her misery

 

Looking at the ocean with her sad brown eyes

 

 

.................................................

 

Slammed

 

Anchored to a place unknown with your back up

Floating on the breeze

Ever ready to blow them all away

 

They’re all just a gimmick, monotonous, exaggerating, in love with you

Or so we’ve heard

 

So much an hour to visit the sadist

Who’s lost the will to kill

They’ll still name you, shame you, frame you, maim you

But it’s not quite the same anymore, now is it

 

Oh man, it nearly hurt my feeling

Oh man, your assumptions through the ceiling

 

If none of us a working for you and only you

How dare we do our do

So begins the mind games for your girl Fridays

Dull-bladed backstabbing

Imprecise, but effective

 

Oh man, it sets my grey matter twitchin’

Oh man, you lie with dogs you end up itchin’

Oh man, will it make you feel all better

Oh man, who can you hurt to matter

 

There’s a person who wants for everything and cherishes nothing

Silver-tongued bullshit, never ending

It’s just observation, steeped in example

But what would I know

I’m no good with theories

 

..................................................

 

Soul Friend

 

First bird callin’

You’ve been up all night

Mind’s a-racin’, now

Flighty like a butterfly

 

You wanna find your way

Find your footing

Run away

Find your anam cara

Is your own clay

First word of warning

The rain may fall

Only washes it away for a short while

 

Feel like a fool

Thinkin’ they’re all

Some kind of wonderful, now

Feel like a play thing

 

When you’re flighty like a butterfly

Singin’ pretty like a wren

 

.............................................

 

Thrown Out The window

 

Sugar’s sweet

Like honey

Melts like ice in hell

So hot

She’s the chilli queen

She’s spicy not subtle

But somehow the bitch slipped under your radar

 

It’s all been thrown out the window

And he doesn’t seem to care

It’s all been thrown out the window

And I’ve been stranded here

 

Me the woman

Not the other

Not the one

Just the rug you tread upon

Like tiles

So sterile and shiny

But not near shiny enough

To look brand new like a hot, hot car ride

 

And why don’t you take a ride

Why don’t you, you, you take a ride

And why don’t you take a ride

You already have without me

 

.................................................

 

Tumbleweeds

 

Some they call him god

Some call him hot stuff

She went out with her head held high and mighty

God almighty she’s left us

 

Tumbleweeds in your soul

When you think you’re nobody

Turn their backs away

Heads bowed down to hide the tears

I’ve got no stories left

They died along with you

 

It’s cold in here

She’s been refused

Discussion for the season

Set her temper on fire

 

The light is magnetic

This tunnel vision

The walls are closin’ in around her

Let her mind stagnate don’t let her breath

 

I’ve got no stories left

They died along with you

She died alone

She died alone with

 

Tumbleweeds in her soul

Now she knows she’s nobody

Tumbleweeds in her soul

Tumbleweeds in her soul

Some they call him god almighty

 

............................................

 

Wasted In Vain

 

Well I called you

You never called me back

What’s a girl like me supposed to do

 

When we’re kissin’ in the carpark

Dancin’ in the rain

I think all my lovin’ has been wasted in vain

 

Should I wait here for you

I know you’ll never wait for me

No more

 

Well my baby don’t love me no more

No my baby don’t call me no more

No my baby won’t kiss me no more

He never told me baby I love you

 

 

 

...........................................................

 

You Don’t Wanna Know

 

I wanted to give you the world

Everything good for free

I cry myself to sleep at night

I wake up on the floor

 

I let you walk away every night

After we say goodbye

Even though I’m breathing

Doesn’t mean, oh no

There’s only air inside

 

I would never hurt you

But now you’ll never know

 

I know I’m not pretty outside or inside

But I still hurt when you say goodbye

That’s not good enough for you

You need something false I hate

I won’t change myself for you
