Lyrics

- A Storm In Heaven
1. Star Sail
 
Hello it's me, it's me
Calling out I can see you
Hello it's me crying out crying out
Are you there?

Hello it's me, it's me
I want to touch you
It's me throwing stones from the stars
On you mixed up world

Been Circling round for 20 years
And in that time I've seen all the fires and all the liars
I've been calling home for 20 years
And in that time I heard the screams rebound to me
While, you were making history

I could see the fire
And I'll throw the fire back down.

 
2. Slide Away
 

So take your time
I wonder if you're here just to use my mind
Don't take it slow
You know I've got a place to go
You always do that
Something I'm not sure of
But just for today
Let go and slide away

I was thinking maybe we could go outside
Let the night sky cool you foolish pride
Don't you feel alive these are you times and our highs

So take your time
I wonder which cup you drink from I hope it's mine
You always do that something
Sonething I'm not sure of but just for today
Let go and burn away
Cause I read you mind
I need it because it takes me where I can't find
Because you always do that something
Something I'm not sure of
but just for today
Let go and burn away

I was thinking maybe we could go outside
Let the night sky cool you foolish pride
Don't you feel alive these are you times and our highs

Slide Away burn away
Slide Away burn away
I read you mind

 
3. Already There
 
Seen it all I'm already there

Save your books and your pills
I don't need them I'm there

You can do anything you want to
All you've got to do is try

I thought my best days had left me
My best years had left me behind

Then I felt them come back (to me)
And all the wild eyes
All the wild eyes no what I mean

It trees cut stars and eyes to heaven
I'll bend them back and bend them again
If my skin looks tired and ol from living
I'll turn right back and live it again
You better pray when the music stops
And you're left alone in your mind
Cause I'll be hearing music till the day I die

Then I heard it turn off
I swear I heard the screams
And all the wild eyes
All the wild eyes no what I mean
They're scared they've lost their dream
They press down on me
You know I thought I was there

Hello high are you?
Yes, well that explains it
Oh you were walking rould like some kind of angel
You were walking rould like some kind of angel
Hello high are you yes
Well that explains it
Well that explains it

 
4. Beautiful Mind
 
A beautiful mind or a beautiful body
I know which one I'm gonna end upon
You say you will but you never promised thoughts

A simle and a hand mix like water with sand
As far as you're concerned
A road and a sign I know which one catches my eyes

And I, thought I heard it for a while
Then it all came to me
Sometimes I just don't know I believe in

Don't you wanna kow when I suffer
It doesn't show
A smile and a hand mix like water with sand don't you know?

I was thinking about moving back home
I don't really need to live here no no no no
I didn't I could I'm sure I would if I knew that
I didn't I couldl I'm sure I would if I knew that

A smile and a hand mix like water with sand
As far as you're concerned
A beautiful mind or a beautiful body
I know which one, I'm gonna end upon end upon

 
5. The Sun, The Sea
 

I see I hear it's very clear
Because the day has come when you have won
It's myself I feel
She calls me calls me the sun the sea yeah
I know it's not for today
It's not for today, it's for you and me yeah you and me

Alone in my room you're there on the floor
Open up your eyes let me get inside
Learnt to love on TV
Learnt to love on TV
Can I help you?
Can I guide you?

It amazes me how I broke free
Then got brought back in
Cause when the feelings there shattered and scared
I know you've won goodbye I'm gone

Alone in my room, you're there on the floor
Open up your eyes let me get inside
Said you learnt to come on TV then hold on to me
Can I help you? Can I guide you

 
6. Virtual World
 
See the water break my hand
No one knows my name
I'm not in demand

Signs ar right
The sighs are here
Who needs virtual world
When I can see it now
I can see it now, oh now, oh now, now
No-one goes no-one a cares
No-one seen it anywhere

She's breathing into lone dead stars
Have you ever seen it
I ain't seen nothing at all

Come see the water break my fall
No-one knows no-one comes
Have you ever seen the book?
The one on my help
The one entitled self death, self death
How to earn a million pounds
I can see it now oh the hearse

She's breating down in a hole in my head
In the dirty half light were
Time means nothing at all

I'm calling out to some one
Anyone who'll have me?
Does anyone need me?
Does anyone know how to cry?
What happens when I go?
What happens when it snows?
I bet you could if you want'd to end

 
7. Make It Till Monday
 
Hey my friend are we gonna make it till Monday?
Another Friday night waiting for a revelation
I can see a million faces in the condecation

In a moment you'd changed
Things weren't the same
You were talking at me not with me
And your tongue was burning up in flames
Are you coming back? Are you coming back?
When Monday comes you'll be alone with
The whole world staring at you

Hey my friend are we gonna make it till Monday?
Hey my friend friend you better leave now I'm gonna go my own way
You said I suffer from inner frustration

In a moment you changed
Things weren't the same
You were talking at me not with me
And your tounge was burning up in flames
And when you turn him off
Where does he go?
Where've the years gone?
I don't no
Hey my friend are we gonna make it till Monday?
Hey my friend are we gonna make it till Monday?

 
8. Blue
 
There you were on the floor cut up
And all alone I'll help you
Concerened in a chrome dream I was a crease
In the shirt that this world wears
Till I met Blue, I was in obsicurity he said
Loosen up who do you wanna be?

We could steal a car and listen to the stars
I can see you've choked on them too
Had enough of late night films
Just enough for an hour or two
Oh Blue show me something new
Oh blue show me something new

Blue I've got a question every time I hold you
Ye Blue I've got a question every time I swallow you it's true

Spike danced for 10 days long
We were just heading for the sun
You shot him down there's blood on my face
His heart's in the right place
What they gonna do to you
What they gonna do
Blue don't forget the word I warned you
Oh Blue don't let them push you don't let them destroy you
Meanwhile I'm searching with my brain blown eyes
See the world through my dirty lonely mixed up mind

 
9. Butterfly
 
You could flap you wings a thousand miles away
Butterfly
A laughing salesman sings
His world so far away
Butterfly

Butterfly (repeat)

You could take the storm away forever every day
Cause you're mine
And I don't know what to say
You could let my smile disappear for a year
Cause you're mine
That's the only way I like it to be

Butterfly (repeat)

Now we get to the best part
It happens all the time, telling me all your lies
You get your kicks from seeing me on the floor
Tied to your bed
Tied to the things you said
Butterfly comming back
Butterfly comming back

Butterfly

 
10. See You In The Next One
 
How hard is it for me to wait for you
See you in the next one have a good time
Could be a lifetime before I see you again
See you in the next one have a good time

Eyes they open wide
Eyes they open wide
I like the way
It was hate the way it is now

Lack of time and a wasted week end
You wore your lies like a filmstar

Eyes they open wide
Eyes they open wide
I like the way it was
Hate the way it is now

 
- A Northern Soul
1. A New Decade
 
A New Decade
The radio plays the sounds we made
And everything seems to feel just right
Coming through your lonely mind
Well I've seen things
That scared and bruised and left me blind
So come on, listen along with me
I think you need a little company

And how long will I run for?
Who am I running from?

And it makes sense
The youth coming up and making you dance
Coz I've got something inside of me
So come on I could use the company

And how long will I run for?
Who am I running from?

But now I've seen my face on a cardboard wall
Nobody comes, nobody calls

And how long will I run for?
Who am I running from?

Teenage tears sting my eyeballs
In a town where I wasn't born
And I will never suffer
So come on, come on, come on
But now I see my face in a cardboard wall
Nobody comes, nobody calls

If your looking for me
I'm there and it's true
If your looking for me out there it's true

 
2. This is Music
 
I stand accused
Just like you for being born without a silver spoon
Stood at the top of a hill
Over my town I was found

I've been on the shelf too long
Sitting at home on my bed too long
Got my things and now I'm gone
How's the world gonna take me?

Finding myself used to be hard
But now, I see the light
If love is a drug
Then I don't need it

I've been on the shelf too long
Sitting at home on my bed too long
Now it's time to hear my song
How are you gonna take it?

I've been on the shelf too long
I've been on the shelf too long
I've been on the shelf too long

e've got a lot of living to do
There's a door in my mind that's open wide
Come inside come inside

Jesus never saved me
He'll never save you too, and you know!
I've got a little sticker on the back of my boot
This is music

And now I see the light shining bright in my eyes
If love is the drug then it ain't for me
Well music is my life
And loved by me
I'm gonna move on the floor with my sweet young thing
Down down down we go till we reach the bottom
Of our soul with this is music

 
3. On Your Own
 
Tell me what you see
Was it a dream? Was I in it?
Life seemed so obscene until it's over
Who knows?

All I want is someone who can fill the hole
In the life I know
In between life and death when there's nothing left
Do you wanna know?

You come in on your own
And you leave on your own
Forget the lovers you've know
And your friends on your own

Tell me if it's true
That I need you, you are changing
I've seen this road before down on the floor
It is hurting me

All I want is someone who can fill the hole in the life I know
In between life and death when there's nothing left
Do you want to know?

You come in on your own
And you leave on your own
Forget the lovers you've know
And your friends on your own

Lies I've got to get rid of this whole inside

 
4. So It Goes
 
Life - roll my die, change this life
You said this movie was mine
But now you go and change your mind
This is my life
So it goes
You come in on your own in this life
You know you leave on your own
'Cause I don't need no calls
When my feelings fall
You showed me things I didn't want to see
I don't believe that love is free
Sure fine way to treat a man

So it goes...you come in on your own in this life
And you know you leave on your own

I'm just a boy, and a wifeless fella
Another drink and I won't miss her

 
5. A Northern Soul
 
This is a tale of a Northern Soul
Looking to find his way back home
He's coming from that same old road
You know the one your folds don't know

I want to see if you know me
I was born in a rented room
My mother didn't get no flowers
Dad didn't approve of me, do you?

I'm alive with something inside of me
And I don't think I'm coming back
So come on come in inside of me
Let's spread it all around

Give me your powder and pills
I want to see if they cure my ills
I've no time for love and devotion

No time for old fashioned potion

Take a look into my eyes
I tell you so many lies and then I'll let you go into the night
And I don't think I'm coming down
I'm alive with something inside of me...
And I can't seem to get it out

I'm gonna die alone in bed
This is a tale of a northern soul
Looking for his way back home
And my friend said, "Come in side of me
And your speakers are telling the truth
Comming through and into your room on a river of sound"

This is a tale of a northern soul looking for his way back home

And if he sees it I know I'll know (repeat)

And there's fighting on the street below
I know there's fighting on the street below
But I dont' care coz I'm a Northern Soul
And I'm looking for a way back home

Too busy staying alive (repeat)

Too busy living a lie, too busy living my life
Too busy stayihg alive

 
6. Brainstorm Interlude
 
coming in...
 
7. Drive You Home
 
Your face so pale
hasn't see the light for days
But...on the hill
You had no place to say "The skies are all mine
And I'm proud to be here
But when my lover cries I feel his tears"
I was gonna drive you home
I was going to tell you who I wanted
We came back to the same place
We didn't speak just danced in our minds

Oh lover I know this ain't what it should be
But let me take you home
I'll show you what you should see
I was gonna drive you home
I was gonna tell you who I wanted
I was gonna drive you home...

I'll never change for anyone
I know it's there but I just can't see it
I know it's there but I can't see it
A little light with you and me in it
I know it's there but I can't see it

I was thinking about the times I could have had
And whether they turn out good if they turn out bad
I was going to take you home
Show you things your lover wouldn't know

My angel, my lover, my angel
My mind lover, my mind lover
She's my mind lover

 
8. History
 
I wander lonely streets
Behind where the old Thames does flow
And in every face I meet
Reminds me of what I have run from

*In every man, in every hand
In every kiss, you understand
That livng is for other men*
I hope you two will understand

I've got to tell you my tale
Of how I loved and how I failed
I hope you understand

I've got to tell you my tale
Of how I loved and how I failed
I hope you understand
These feelings should not be in the man

In every child, in every eye
In every sky, above my head
I hope that I know
So come with me in bed
Because it's you and me, we're history
There ain't nothing left to say
When I will get you alone

Maybe we could find a room
Where we could see what we should do
Maybe you konw it's true
Living with me is like keeping a fool

In every man, in every hand
In every kiss, you understand
That living is for other men
I hope you know that I am me so come on
I'm thinking about history
And I'm living for history
And I think you know about me
Cause I am

And one and one is two
But three is company
When you're thinking about the things you do
And you're thinking about the things you do
I want to tell you my tale
How I fell in love and jumped out on my bail
I hope ypu understand there's more in a smile than in a hand
In every sky, in every kiss
There's something that I migght have missed

Why am I going to
A place that now belongs to you
But you were weak and so was I
Let's pick it up, let's even try
To live today, so why not smile
Don't dream away your life coz it is mine
Is that a crime (repeat) this life is mine
The bed ain't made but it's filled full of hope
I've got a skin full of dope
I've got a skin full of dope

 
9. No Knock On My Door
 
She knew my feelings were tangled and frayed,
She took me into a windblown alleyway,
She showed me what a boy should see,
I'll thank her till the day that I die.

So..here we go...
No knock on my door.
Baby , Till you see what living has done to me.
And I'm sure that life means more than this.

I took her to a room and I showed her myself,
She made feel proud and respectful,
There's nothing that this girl won't do for me,
For that I've gotta thank her , I mean it.

So..here we go...
A face in the crowd,
Jump up then jump down,
Baby.
Can you see through me?

Sure,I've been here before,
No knock on my door,
No love , in the car. *
Baby...
Please be my style.
Sure,I've seen it before,
No knock on my door,
Love in the car can be painful I know.*
Cry , I've cried every night.
I need to hold you Child,
Oh , But can you see me?
Knocking down your door.
Sure , There's times I have crawled,
And there is times I have dreamed,
Oh , but it seems that , must you need my love?
And I never seem to put it out , my love.
And I'm shaking,
I'm shaking,
and I'm shaking.

 
10. Life's An Ocean
 
Life's An Ocean
Too mych comimotion, too much emotion
Dragging me down
Living for today, don't have time to pray
Ready for the game
Take a line of fickle flame

Imagine the future
Wake up with a scream
I was buying some feelings
From a vending machine
Say that I will see
Something more than I have
There's something inside of me
Crying out for something else
And if someone hears my scream
Put it in a letter to me
Slippery slidey road down

Life's an ocean too much commotion

Not enough emotion to satisfy me
Slippery slidey road down
It's slippery slidey road down

Hold my hand and we'll walk down
Dry those eyes and we'll walk down

Slippery slidey road down
Life's an ocean, life's an ocean
Too much commotion, too much emotion

 
11. Stormy Clouds
 
I wanted to tell you my story
How my life seemed to change in a matter of days
The heavens break I am walking tall
How come change always seems to bring the rain

Stormy clouds, new horizons
Come and get it, if you want to
So hop on the train coz it kills the pain
Blues player going to another town
Believe me this boy here is sinking
Just drinking

These streets, these times
They tie me down through with you
But I feel no pain
Stormy clouds, new horizons

 
- Urban Hymns
1. Bitter Sweet Symphony
 
Cause it's a bitter sweet symphony that's life...
Try to make ends meet , you're a slave to the money then you die.
I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down...
You know the one that takes you to the places where all the veins meet, yeah.

No change, I can change, I can change, I can change,
but I'm here in my mould , I am here in my mould.
But I'm a million different people from one day to the next...
I can't change my mould , no,no,no,no,no,no,no

Well I've never prayed,
But tonight I'm on my knees, yeah.
I need to hear some sounds that recognise the pain in me, yeah.
I let the melody shine, let it cleanse my mind , I feel free now.
But the airwaves are clean and there's nobody singing to me now.

No change, I can change, I can change, I can change,
but I'm here in my mould , I am here in my mould.
And I'm a million different people from one day to the next
I can't change my mould, no,no,no,no,no,no,no

Have you ever been down?
I can change, I can change...

Cause it's a bittersweet symphony this life.
Trying to make ends meet, try to find somebody then you die.
You know I can change, I can change, I can change,
but I'm here in my mould, I am here in my mould.
And I'm a million different people from one day to the next.
I can't change my mould, no,no,no,no,no,no,no

We've got ya sex and violence melody and silence
(Have you ever been down)
(I'll take you down the only road I've ever been down)

 
2. Sonnet
 
My friend and me
Looking through her red box of memories
Faded I'm sure
But love seems to stick in her veins you know

Yes, there's love if you want it
Don't sound like no sonnet, my lord
Yes, there's love if you want it
Don't sound like no sonnet, my lord
My lord

Why can't you see
That nature has its way of warning me
Eyes open wide
Looking at the heavens with a tear in my eye

Yes, there's love if you want it
Don't sound like no sonnet, my lord
Yes, there's love if you want it
Don't sound like no sonnet, my lord
My lord

Sinking faster than a boat without a hull
My lord
Dreaming about the day when I can see you there
My side
By my side

Here we go again and my head is gone, my lord
I stop to say hello
'Cause I think you should know, by now
By now
By now
By now
By now
By now
Oh, by now
Oh, by now
Oh, by now
Oh, by now

 
3. The Rolling People
 
I got one more life
Can you see it wasting away?
But I got a plan
Do you understand?

The drugstore wife
I was dealing soul and other white
I won't shake your hands
'Cause death has no plans

But here we are the rolling people
Can't stay for long
We gotta go

So come alive with the rolling poeple
Don't ask why
We just know

I'm on a big jet plane
With my briefcase and crime in my veins
I'll be the first to toast
To my rowdy soul

But here we are the rolling people
Don't ask why
We don't know

So come alive with the rolling people
Don't ask why
We just go now
Yeah

Don't even know which way I'm going to
