Ashes & Dust 03:11
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

Green Bees 03:14
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

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
5.
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
6.
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
7.
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
8.
Another Bar 02:38
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
9.
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
10.
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
