What can do, what can do, what can do, ah, what can do….? It was a cold, cold night, and my jacket’s tight. No-one was watching, except… And he was walking a chance and looking for a dance, What could I do? It was a hot, hot night. What can do… And if you’re looking for a reason, You shall not find it here. I’ve been looking for a reason For longer than I care to care. And you ain’t got no reason to stay here. But baby, it’s how it is And I am just how I am. What can do…

It’s a spell of dishonesty I’m shocked when you’re honest to me It’s not hard to turn a button, but You’re kinda stubborn so… This man thought I was up for grabs We both know there’s no truth in that. The only food I eat I bless at our table; IF I had a drink, it’s cause I am able. You’re sweet, like sugar, You need me to water you down. You’re sweet like sugar I wanna settle you down, I wanna settle you down, oh… I’ll never be the sun you live without I’ll never be the sun you live without I’ll never be the sun, but I will be your only one And I will push your little buttons with my mouth. I’ll never be the stars you live without I’ll never be the star you live without I’ll never be a star, but I will drive you in my car And I will push your little buttons with my mouth. You’re sweet, like sugar, You need me to water you down. You’re sweet like sugar I wanna settle you down, I wanna settle you down, oh…

Picking you up again It’s not how it should have been, But it’s the way it’s gone And I don’t regret a thing I’ve done Except how I loved Someone and then forgot myself. So, here’s to you my dear playing the fool. Well I caught you out And I want you to know… Tumbled into act one, So this is how it in began. And anyway it’s lost and gone, And I don’t regret a thing I’ve done; Except, loving you without a thought. It’s a free choice, honey, Oh you forgot, You say you lost yourself in us… Well I caught you out And I want you to know…

I have an unstoppable thirst. Quenched some by the thought of you and some by what I don’t deserve. I’m blind to the truth I feverishly seek I call to the shadows and yet you don’t speak. I have an unstoppable thirst. Don’t be fooled by my deceiving ways, I am not here to save you I’m, Parched open mouth and pleading and I am only leading you astray. I have an unstoppable thirst. Quenched some by the thought of you and some by what I don’t deserve. If you had some sense you would stop me to say, save all your effort is pain for your play. Don’t be fooled by my deceiving ways, I am not here to save you Parched open mouth and pleading and I am only leading you astray. Don’t mind my unstoppable thirst….

I’m a 10 year old girl with a blood lust. I try to clean those glasses from your dirty lips, and your dirty past. My friend pulls the weeds; my friend mows the grass; In this dead little suburb, which keeps in curse, after curse. He needs care from what is real, I need blood for my strange heart, Lost a bucket-load round here, He must get away. Save each other from a hell, He ties ribbons where I can’t, “Take this cloth, take this brush, Run away, run away…” I’m a 10 year old girl with a blood lust. I try to clean those dirty glasses from all of you scum. We ain’t doin’ nothin’ wrong, we both have our scars. I told him a story, he gave me a turtle. He drives a cool car. He needs care from what is real, I need blood for my strange heart, Lost a bucket-load round here, He must get away. Save each other from a hell, He ties ribbons where I can’t, “Take this cloth, take this brush, Run away, run away…” Ooh… Our deeds they ripen on that tree, someone just listen to me, Here I wait. No-one knows where I go to, your birth too early, mine too new. I’m a 10 year old girl, he is 22. If you ever lay your hands on him, I crave for blood.

Bring it like a cup to bear; anyway you’ll have it there. If I trust your innocence, am I safe? Meeting there we struck a chord, discarding thoughts we can’t afford. If I trust your inference, a barricade. Oh, what we had found just now. Common threads they bind, common lives left behind. Oh, what we have forged just now. Once said all we couldn’t say. Hold it back. I fight like I need it less, if I asked I’m sure you’d guess. If I trust the me in you, I might crave. All our known selves left aside, we stand singing side by side, If I trust the harmony will it fade? Oh, what we had found just now. Common threads they bind, common lives left behind. Oh, what we have forged just now. Once said all we couldn’t say. Hold it back.

I found a wild man and his heart I tried to tame them both. And the one thing I learned is how you get burned By a cool, icy wind in the desert. I found a gypsy man in his caravan And he played wild rhythms on his violin. He grasped for my heart It is not there to take. I’m wild too you know I don’t easily break. They all stare in certain disgust Knowing of my sins, as they must. But you’ll never see him there in my arms, Under the stars, but I do. And you’ll never see him stand by my side, Swelling with pride, but neither do I… I was a wanton one when he came And put his spell on me. I was not claimed, but twice ashamed So what did it matter to me. I had a gypsy man in his caravan And my soul shook with fever at his command. I grasped for his heart It is not there to take. It flies with the wind, And it loves only change. I’ll not make an honest man out of him But somehow he got under my skin. You’ll never see him there in my arms, Under the stars, but I do. And you’ll never see him stand by my side, Swelling with pride, but neither do I… La da da da da…

I caught a white dove And then I lost its name. And the white flag of our truce It fell blood red again. Seashell lost his voice Come whisper in my ear. I am not scared of the truth I say, bring on another year. I brood on my defence Go claim your innocence Let’s leave our selfish pride and foolish apathy. I set myself afloat To clear my mind and throat. But we’re on the same boat! I’m on the keel and you’re at the stern, And we’ve got no more bridges to burn. Oh… This tide it pulls you in, You either sink or swim. Come on. Let’s build an ark, Together we’ll find dry land. There goes that white dove, I swear it’s been haunting us. I set it free and we will see, if it Brings back an olive branch. I brood on my defence Go claim your innocence Let’s leave our selfish pride and foolish apathy. I set myself afloat To clear my mind and throat. But we’re on the same boat! I’m on the keel and you’re at the stern, And we’ve got no more bridges to burn. Just hold my hand.

My name is Madeline and I love the autumn red hair of my lover. His lips a paradigm in which I fold, my torn, dry wings to recover. These violet shadows and bright yellow lights, tickle his skin for hours. Rest in this glorious hue of delight and my pink skin as it flowered. Lay beside me, lay awake, and I will keep you warm. Haunting shadows we mistake, the distant sound of bells. My name is Madeline and I call your soft, downy name to the sea. Whispers of seashells, thunderous waves, echoes of our memories. Curse the day that you left, your white parched sails snapped in the zephyr. How were we to know that when you left, it would be forever? Lay beside me, lay awake, and I will keep you warm. Haunting shadows we mistake, the distant sound of bells. My name is Madeline and I love the autumn red hair of my lover. His lips a paradigm in which I fold, my torn, dry heart to recover. Lay beside me, lay awake, and I will keep you warm. Haunting shadows we mistake, the distant sound of bells.

It’s the simple things that we love. Blankets freshly warmed by the sun. Cups of tea by the fire. A kind word. I will look at you and you shall find me homely. I will smell your skin, warm, cinnamon and sweet, My hair shall tickle you, you’ll animate the silence. It’s the simple things we love (This is spring…) Smell of lavender on the breeze (It seems we are blooming…) And those little imperfections (Perhaps I am your honey…) Cracked coffee mug on your lips (You would loose your sting to protect me…) I will look at you and you’ll find me homely. I will smell your skin, warm, cinnamon and sweet, My hair shall tickle you, you’ll animate the silence. We shall be still, yet moved, greatly, by our love. (This is spring…) It’s the simple things that we love. (It seems we are blooming…) It’s the simple things that we love.
