Touch And Go

"In a room full of silver shadows
A customary kiss goodnight
And it slips through your tightened shoulders
It reaches your heart and dies

And the sadness is bound to kill me
But I’m too far away to care
And I’d just like to know if you will
Oh could I even get there

Oh
Back to the touch and go
When not a soul could know
When your lovin’ was slow
We lived every night for the touch and go

Now there’s no one in the night to blame you
No one in your glasses of wine
I never won I only tamed you
Foolishly I called you mine
And your pacing in your cage every morning
And you rattle your chains every night
And you stare past the bars never knowing
With nothing left to put up a fight

Oh
Then we would touch and go
When not a soul could know
Oh your lovin’ was slow
And we lived every night for the touch
Oh I remember

This War Is Over

"take off my shield
carry my sword
i won’t need it anymore
find my a sky
give me my wings
frozen and broken but free

CHORUS:

tell them i’m all right
i’m coming home
tell them i’m all right
i am alone
this was is over
i’m coming home

take off my shame
bury it low
i won’t need it anymore
find me the sun
give me it whole
melt all the chains in my soul

CHORUS

take off my pain
carry me slow
i won’t fight here anymore

CHORUS

Keep It Precious

"You brought me to trust you brought me to tears
In one tender touch the pain disappears
I have been to the sword seen it come seen it die
As we enter the dark I bessech you to try
In prophecy all good things must end
So take care my love my friend
Keep it precious
Keep it precious

This yielding is fine this promise rare
One day at a time we’ve agreed to dare
Holding you tight with wide open arms
I’m letting you go no stranger to harm
Go on ride your way do not break or bend
Just take care my love my friend
Keep it precious
Keep it precious

And the wonder let the wonder never cease
And the madness of the pleasure and ecstasy
Danger believing me
Wounding and healing me please
Keep it precious

I believe in your eyes I believe in your fate
I believe we can fly on the wings we create
A voice from behind calls up ...

You And I Know

"They ask why do we live love die do we
Take a chance maybe ask a dance do we
Risk the pain never quite regain never
Oh we bleed the dark never miss the mark never

Well you and I know I know you and I know you and I know
You and I know I know you and I know you and I know
You and I know I know you and I know you and I know

They don’t know of the place we go lover
All the blues are green nothing in between lover
And when the darkness falls through the fine glass walls lover
Oh it makes the sound of the outward bound lover

But you and I know I know you and I know you and I know
You and I know I know you and I know you and I know
You and I know I know you and I know you and I know
Oh

Well they’re looking right through me
And back into themselves
And I’m thinking that they knew me
When they laugh at someone...
