Song Lyrics ALMOST FEELS LIKE SUMMER

There’s no leaves on the trees – there’s a coldness in the breeze
My hands are turning blue and I feel fine.
There’s a light on my face and the river starts to play
I move through my day and I feel fine

I am carried by my thoughts of you
Another day of grey and blue
I shouldn’t smile but oh I do
It almost feels like Summer

And life rushes past – the night comes in too fast
The day is thrown away and I feel fine
We sit and watch tv – you rest your head on me
Outside is cold as it can be and I feel fine

I am carried by my love for you
Because of you I make it through
I have to smile so smile I do
It almost feels like summer.

BEAUTIFUL AND FUNNY

She is beautiful and funny - a potent combination
Who leapt into my world with a smooth determination
I smile and I love it when our wild eyes meet
But the joy in my laughter - it rings so bittersweet.

She is beautiful and funny with fire in her dance
That moves me and seduces me within this hopeless chance
And like a fiery Catherine wheel she burns and then sheís gone
And how the laughter and my joy are suddenly undone.

She is beautiful and funny - Iím addicted to her face
That takes me to a carousel far from this time and place
And like a dusty clock run down, Iím waiting for the key
Of beautiful and funny to return once more to me.

FILL YOUR EMPTINESS
Cry on my shoulders, though the world is your own,
Lean on me Ďtil you find your way home.
Howl at the moon - you howl at all
ĎCept those who make you feel
Like crying on my shoulders

Fill your emptiness with my love.
Fill your emptiness with my love.

FRENCH PRINCESS

Crossing the stones
In through the gates
Behind the door my
French princess awaits

She covers her sighs
With misty grey eyes
And mocks her own thoughts
With cast-off asides

As he makes his way down through the winter
The miles stretch out between
The now and the hereafter
Fall as one within her dream

And she waits
She waits
And she waits


Dark masquerade
She graces the floor
She glances at faces
That shadow the door
Soft kisses recalled
With warmth in the night
She dreams of his touch
In the shimmering light

As he makes his way down through the winter
The miles stretch out between
The now and the here after
Fall as one within her dream
And she waits
She waits
And she waits

HAUNTED

And after all, it’s just the way it goes you know
You fall in love and then you fall to pieces
Before too long you’re feeling strong again you know
Recall her smile and you will fall to pieces

Some girls make you cry without a reason why and it will haunt you so.


And time moves on – another day that comes and goes
You hear her song and you still fall to pieces
A voice inside keeps saying: this can’t go on and on you know
But you’re so hooked on the ‘fall to pieces’

Some girls should be free and she did not want me and it still haunts me so.
Should a small mistake give you my heart to break, you know it haunts me so.

After all you’re afraid to fall – so you hide away without forward motion
Just as well you stay in your shell so there’s not a chance of a forward motion.

I’m haunted by your love.

KENNETH

I said the words - some I meant - old and bent
To touch within - wonít show love - never been.
Long line of eternal frowns and emotional greed
Fell on me and I did fight
To show my love in whatever light

But when the veil of decay swept down
Dark agonies tore him from this life
My words of love no difference made
My father took his love
Took his love away.

SURE

Does my body dance at the slightest glimpse of chance -
You can be sure of it - You can be sure of it.
Does my loneliness matter to me less and less -
You can be sure of it - You can be sure of it.
Does my face light up every time you call me up
You can be sure of it - You can be sure of it.
Do my tears conspire to betray my heartís desire
You can be sure of it - You can be sure of it.

Do my eyes enflame as we move to play the game
You can be sure of it - You can be sure of it.
Does my mind collide with the heart that beats inside
You can be sure of it - You can be sure of it.

WAVELENGTH

And she walks by and turns my darkness into sunrise
With just a smile, but does she know how I feel?
And when she speaks to somebody or another – oh do they know
That they are blessed and it’s real?
Tune to my wavelength – move to my heartbeat.

She knows my name but she don’t know a thing about me
It’s just a game – and so I play – and it’s real.
And she’s a star that I can see but can never capture.
She should be free – she should be anything she wants to be.
Tune to my wavelength – move to my heartbeat.

Take the time to get to know me – cause so few people really know me.
