Track Name: Ashes & Dust
Ashes & Dust

I looked right by the window and stared at the docks
I can't seem to undo it or even really stop
The clouds on the bridge and waves on the rock
I guess you'll have some stitches to come back on the block

And are these mere impressions that I bare for you to see
Or are these points of pressure for the building to stand free?
I ask a question and you call for lust
And is it right to mention that it's already ashes and dust

I looked right at the signals and wrote them on a sheet
The problem is the answer when've got hands for feet
And you can't feed your illusions with blisters and dodgy clubs
I can't seem to find the right end of the street this month

I ask a question and you call for lust
And is it right to mention that it's already ashes and dust
Ashes and dust
Track Name: Green Bees
Green Bees

Green bees
In all that you can breathe dear
And in the chilling breeze here
What blows across the sea

Green bees
Are all my eyes can see here
It's all that you can hear dear
At least it's up to me

It's love in the making
A dog on a leach
It's lost in the morning still
I can't compete

There's no reason to cry babe
The blood on the leaves
And drop by drop, crop by crop
Still I can't come near
Track Name: On The Playgrounds
On The Playgrounds

You came so free you came along
Always on my mind
As if all agreed
Or pushed to believe
The soul has landed

What has made you write this song
It's all as it seems
All lost in the fields
Police and thieves
The soul has landed

The singers are mute
And the strings out of tune
And they all begin the same old way
Before, when less was more
The kids came all this way singing

And in came the lover on the playground
So many covers in the play throughout
But I can't believe
That your love is so fierce
And that by lovig'
One can be loved again
And again
Track Name: Children First
Children First

Blessed is the child that you raised
Cuz in a moment
Cruising like lovers in the spring
Moving right along

Blessed is the mother in the rain
With an umbrella
Covering the children she made

And I still get on
When moving on
And I still can sting
At least 'til you come in

Never knock before you come in
Cuz in a moment
Shifting like a prisoner in the ring
So far upon

Always knock before you given in
Oh so modern
Yet oh so old in many ways

And I still get on
When moving on
And I still can sing
At least 'til you come in
Track Name: And The Old Men Laughed
And The Old Men Laughed

You're wasted home
And the leaves seem to grow in all ways
How can a girl like you
Behave so sleazy?

I'm all alone
And the streets are just like the old days
How can love come through
And out of small things

You're in this for eternity
And me for a second
Oh yeah you hear and you see
As I watch and listen

I came home the other night
Just to see the old men laugh
But it's rather easy to see
That there's always
A better half
Track Name: The Guest With The Most
The Guest With The Most

Is it a dream
When you wake up sweating
But I ain't one to
Spend a night with you

What kind of cream
Do you put on your skin
Has it come to
Late night drivin' through

What kind of lover
On a mission undercover
Can pretend to feel like you

What kind of sinner
Can be made to recover
If all you said became be true

What kind of lullaby
Do you want to sleep girl
I wanna leave this word
Maybe I'm finding out
What is the cost
Of somebody lost
Ready for most
She's the guest with the most
Track Name: Another Bar
Another Bar

Another bar
And it's so strange to see you
A lonely car and I'm waiting

I'm not involved in all that you gained
Your hands are getting cold again

At least that's what I'm sold
It ain't plastic but it ain't gold
The wheels are on the road
Burning

Another star
And I'd love to begin with
Some other scars
But I'm driving

Is it enough
To be cruel just for you
I ain't got time for some cosmic rendezvous

At least that's what I'm sold
It ain't plastic but it ain't gold
The wheels are on the road
Burning
Track Name: Recognize A Little
Recognize A Little

Once I was walking by
I saw in her the saddest eyes
The days they are runnin' by
They breathe a little
And then they die

What do you do for some peace in mind?
Give me a minute
Pretend I'm sorry
What do you say just to kill some time?

There is hope in the words I say
When it's dark at the end of day
There's only so much time
To make up your mind
And recognize a little
The days that are passing you by

They breathe a little
And you come a little

There is hope in the words I say
When it's dark at the end of day
There's only so much time
To wake up your mind
And recognize a little
The days that are passing you by

Breathe a little
Breathe a little

It wasn't so long ago
That you let it all go
Now is it so
It wasn't the case a second ago
Track Name: Long Brown Windows
Long Brown Windows

I find it hard to believe it
Is it one true love for which you're waiting?
For once love, what d'you say?
Are you sorry or are you vain?

Long brown windows are rolling at last
As the tall long widow with a tear in her eye

For each raindrop of today
There is a pearl for yesterday

You moved in like in a dream
As she waited for the scene

And for each raindrop of today
There is a pearl for yesterday
