A Sort of HomecomingAnd you know it's time to gothrough the sleet and driving snowacross the fields of mourning to lights in the distanceAnd you hunger for the timetime to heal, 'Desire', timeand you earth moves beneathyour own dream landscapeOh, oh on borderland we runand still we run, we run and don't look backI'll be there, I'll be theretonight, a highroad, a highroad out of herethe city walls are all come downthe dust a smoke screen all around to seefaces ploughed like fields that oncegave no resistanceAnd we live by the side of the roadon the side of a hill as the valleys explodedislocated, suffocatedthe land grows weary of it's ownOh, oh on borderland we runand still we run, we run and don't look backtonight, tonightThe wind will crack in wintertimea bomb-blast lightning waltzno spoken words, just a scream . . .tonight we'll a bridge across the sea and landsee the sky burning rainshe will die and live againtonightAnd you heart beats so slowthrough the rain and fallen snowacross the fields of morningto a light that's in the distanceOh don't sorrow, no don't weepfor tonight, at lastI am coming homeI am coming home
PrideOne man come in the name of love,One man come and go.One come here to justify,One man to overthrow,In the name of love,What more in the name of love.One man crawled on a barb wire fence,One man he resist.One man washed on an empty beach.One man betrayed with a kiss.In the name of love,What more in the name of love.Early morning, April 4.A shot rings out in the Memphis sky.Free at last, they took your life,But they could not take your pride.In the name of love,What more in the name of love.
WireInnocent and in a sense I amGuilty of the crime that's now in handSutch a nice dayTo throw your life awaySutch a nice day To let it goOh these eyes, I can't believe itCold, this heart is slow,Heart is stoneCall meSutch a cold heartSutch a cold man Watch you tear your self apartSoul leaves on my soul to killSoul leaves on the longest sleepThe longest sleepOn I come and out you go you getHere we are again, now place your betsIs this the time ?The time to win or loose ?Is this the time ?The time to choose ?Oh these eyes, I can't believe itSoul burns with a cold fireCold, this heart is slow,Heart is stoneAny time your on thereGive some awayWont you tell meThat's it just give me itI'm on your sideBe on the same sideI'm alright jackYou get off my backI won't goI give you hopeHere's the ropeHere's the ropeNow swing away
The Unforgettable FireIce.Your only rivers run cold,These city lights,They shine as silver and gold,Dug from the night.Your eyes as black as coal.Walk on by, Walk on through,Walk till you run.And don't look back.For here, I am.Carnival, the wheels fly and the colors spinthrough alcohol.Red wine that punctures the skin.Face to face in a dry and waterless place.Walk on by, Walk on throughSo sad to beseige your love so,Head on, stay this time.Stay tonight, in a lie.I'm only asking but I think that you know.Come on take me away.Come on take me away.Come on take me home.Home again.And if the mountain should crumble,or disappear into the sea.Not a tear, no not I stay in this time.Stay tonight in a light.Ever after, this love in time.And if you save it all, save you love.Don't push me too far tonight.
PromenadeEarth, sky, sea, and rainHere she comes back again.Men stroll, sneak the hallWords that build or destroy.Dirt dry bones and stones.bobbed wire fence cut me down,I'd like to be around.In a spiral staircaseto the higher ground.And I like a firewallAnd explode.Roman candlelightning lights up the sky.In cracked streets, tremble under fort.Sidestep, sidewalk.I see you stare into space.Have I gotten closer now,behind the face.Tell me, will you dance with me,and turn me around tonight.Up though the spiral staircase to the higher ground.See slide show, see side town,coca-cola radio radio radio . . .

BadIf you twist and turn away.If you tear yourself in two again.If I could, yes I wouldIf I could, I would let it go.Surrender, dislocate.If I could throw this lifelessLifeline to the wind.Leave this heart of clay,See you walk, walk away,Into the night.And through the rain.Into the half-light,And through the flame.If I could throw myself,set your spirit free.I'd lead your heart away,See you break, break awayInto the light.And to the day.To let it go,And so to fade away.To let it go,And so fade away.I'm wide awake.I'm wide awake.I'm not sleeping.Oh, no, no.If you should ask then maybeThey tell you what I would say.True colors fly in blue and black,bruised silken skies and burning flag.Colors crash, collide in blood shot eyes.If I could, you know I would.If I could, I would let it go.This desparation.Dislocation.Separation.Condemnation.Revelation.Temptation.Isolation.Desolation.Let it go,And so to fade away.To let it go,And so fade away.Oh, noI'm wide awake.I'm wide awake.I'm not sleeping.Oh, no no
Indian Summer SkyIn the ocean.Cuts wind, deep the sky.I like there - don't know why.In the forest there's a clearing eye.Running toward the light.Sky.Blue sky.In the aweful holding.Deep decide. If I could, I would.Up for swimming against the tide.Up toward the sky.It's a blue sky.To loose along the way.The spark that set the flame.To flicker and to fade,On this the longest day.So the wind go through to my heart.So wind go through my soul.You give yourself to this the longest day.You give yourself, you give it all away.Two rivers run as deep as seas.They change and so do I.The light that strikes the tallest trees.The light , wait for I.Up toward the sky.It's a blue sky.To loose along the wayThe spark that set the flame.To flicker and to fade,Of this the longest days.So wind go through to my heart,So wind blow through my soul.You give yourself,You give the longest days.You give yourself,You give it all away.
Elvis Presly and AmericaWhite flash, under my own love.Tell me of my own.White flash come though my own life.Telling these things.And I weary them.And I believe in you.White flash see the sky,And it turns inside from you.She won't turn my back.And I know that it makes me blue.And you hope.And your sky is feeling blue.And your heart, so cold when I'm with you.And you feel, like no one told you to.And your time was on your side.Don't talk to me.You know, like no one told you how,but you know the king that howls has howled.But you feel like sentimental.But you don't care without sharing in your heart.But there's no hope, go to sleep.So hope in sleep.I breaking through for you and me.And you don't.No one told you to.And you found outWhere you were going to.You were through with me,but I know you should be back for moreYou know, And no one told you so.And you know the sky,And it's shade of blue.And you walk, you walk to let go.You pull from the outside, tell meDon't fade away.Drop me down but don't break me.In your sleep.It's in your heart and mine.The whole sea is dark.Loving is on your side and walking through.So let me in your heart,You beat is like something from you.They lost it.So stay (sad) over midnight.Oh stay (sad) under the sky.And you know, and no one told you how.And you cared,and no one told you tried.And your heart, it lift out from the side.And the rain beats down.And the shame beats down.And this rain keeps on coming down.And this time is right.Don't let them push you by,You're going to go join God.And if someone ask you why,You tell them some old lie.Give away some ole lie.You know, and no one told you why.And you feel,Like you pretend you canGo you live.Don't you leaveDon't leave out part of me that I can feel.Like I can feel me fall.I can't hold on,see that flaw.Let me feel.Let the pieces only flow.
MLKSleep, sleep tonight.And may your dreamsBe realizedIf the thunder cloudPasses rain.So let it rain, rain down him.So let it be.Sleep, Sleep tonightAnd may your dreams be realized.If the thundercloud passes rain,so let it rain.Let it rain, rain on him.
