Track Name: Take Your Love Away
Verse 1
It was early in the morning before the sun had got out of its bed
I was lying in the half-light thinking thoughts that i should long ago have left
I was turning over tables thinking about the things we used to say
How I wanted to be with you how I wanted you to be so far away
But all of my wishful thinking it got burned up with the arrival of the dawn
And I was left with only tatters I was left to face another day alone

Take your pale white lips
Take those games you play
Take your wicked thoughts and
Take your love away
Wont you
Take your love away
Take your love away

Verse 2
The sun was unrelenting I was high and I was stalling once again
I could see that it was daytime but I pulled the cover higher up instead
Well id been telling myself stories by the likes of Keats and Coetzee and the boys
But it only made me blacker – forgetting is a tune that takes a long time
And though we entered with our papers some confusion, somewhere on the road
Meant we started chasing shadows till in the end we had nothing left to hold

Verse 3
It was nightfall ‘fore I realized just how quickly, time can fly away
Another day of nothing, another day of everything the same
I had visions in the darkness, you were captured , you were held against your will
I was battling through the forest when I woke up to find the bedroom empty still
But all of my wishful dreaming it got twisted, well it never lasts that long
I was left with only tatters I was left to face another night alone
Track Name: What Lies Between Us
Ive been out on my own now for one hundred days
Ive been out in the rain
Ive been out in the rain

My corners are crumpled, my pages have run
All the colours have gone
Where have all of them gone

Unwanted storm damaged, detrital waste
Such a terrible waste
Such a terrible waste

But somehow you fail to see what is ever so clear
You hold me so dear
You hold me so near

But there's nothing between us
No, nothing at all
Nothing at all

The king of the Pharisees he's up on the hill
Hes talking there still
Hes talking there still

But no one who’s down here believes half his lies
They all wear their disguise
We all wear our disguise

It stretches forever like an invisible wall
An invisible wall
An invisible wall

But there’s nothing between us, no nothing to see
Why do i look for you
Why do you look for me

You give me your honey, you give me warm milk
You iron my shirt
Yeah you iron my shirt

You wrap me in muslin, you wrap me in silk
Right up to the hilt
Right up to the hilt

Well theres nothing between us , we’re one and the same
we’re one and the same
we’re one and the same

You make me forget my name
Track Name: Alaro
Verse 1
He wore a tom ford suit and a carlo franco tie
yeah he was gonna be famous and make all the rich girls cry
but she surprised him in his room down on the ivory coast
she had him in her mouth before he could even close the door
They spent the first three days in the pouring rain
Before he realized, deep inside to make the change

Verse 2
They travelled fast abroad in the dead of night
Under deadened sky they passed away and out of sight
On the other side of a slowly turning world
They danced together like a hand put in a glove
Though they were happy in the southern dolomites
They took a chance, they to a boat to the other side

Verse 3
But after two long years on those dusty desert roads
he awoke one morning to find himself alone
he turned around and he thought of the evening tide
and where she'd gone and how he felt so dead inside
and though he waited fifteen years for a wind to blow
her ship back in - she never came back to alaro
Track Name: I Want You Back (Jackson 5)
Verse 1
When I had you to myself
I didn't want you around
Those pretty faces always made you stand out in a crowd
But someone picked you from the bunch
one glance was all it took
Now it's much too late for me to take a second look

Oh baby give me one more chance
(show you that I love you)
Won't you please let me
(back in your heart)
Oh darlin' I was blind to let you go
(let you go baby)
But now since I see you in his arms
(I want you back)
(I want you back)
(I want you back)
(I want you back)

Tryin' to live without your love
Is one long sleepless night
Let me show you girl
That I know wrong from right
Every street you walk on
I leave tearstains on the ground
Following the girl
I didn't even want around
Let me tell you now

Oh baby all I need is one more chance
(show you that I love you)
Won't you please let me
(back to your heart)
Oh darlin' I was blind to let you go
(let you go baby)
But now since I see you in his arms
(I want you back)
(I want you back)
(I want you back)
(I want you back)
Track Name: Following Winds
Well honey Ive fallen ‘to a bottomlesss hole
you sucked me right in and I fell to the floor
a dark, distant hallway of marble and pearl
I looked for your hand... but you’d gone

Well if I should fall for a foreigners arms
I've got nothing to lose but the wake of you charms
and the princess that saw me cross over the road
she was crying... she was crying

a thousand confusions rain down on my mind
as we turn to the west and we look for a sign
but there nothing is changing as governments roll
on the crest of a wave of distrust of the soul

I have cash in my hand and a phrase on the wall
they had written it large for the good of us all
but my minds haunted visions turn into a scrawl
when the hard light of day makes you gasp and you crawl

Ive got nothing to give you save all of these songs
but they arent much good for building up a home
if you shelter behind them you only get torn
as the direction it turns depends where youre born
