Lyrics for Home CD

THE NOTE:

Stay at home lovers, that are up all night, up all night
I kissed your lips between the covers, and the window light, the window light

theres a chill, in the room, but it brings me closer to you
here's a note, from me to you, put it in your pocket or put it in your shoe
and it says..

you knock me out, you turn me on, but i'm gone, baby gone...for now

when you smile, I know you mean it, and its beautiful the way you do
when I'm far away, I know I'll miss it, but of all things, I know I'll miss you

there's a chill, in the room, but it leads me closer to you
here's a note, from me to you, read it in the morning if it's the first thing you do
and it says..

you knock me out, you turn me on, but i'm gone baby gone...for now

HOME:

the cigarette burns second hand, i'm lost inside my head again,
and i am swimming circles in a tank
and the promises of an empty glass wont reach my lips nor heal the past
i once drank the thought of it and sank

down the line, the ink will skate the coldest words off a ball-point blade
and the regrets with my old flame
across the wings of a paper plane, i laugh, i cry and i sing in vain
..i toss it to the wind again

i'll trace the steps of familiar roads, the summer heat has left the coast
and i find warmth in a strangers poem
that says, 'shine on, your head held high, love is wild but your heart is wise
and it will find its way back home'

so until that day I will wander on, a stone's throw from across the pond
a place in which i once belonged
and its refuge, beneath the sky, the moon will guide my way tonight
and i will find my way back home

PASSENGER:

you know i'm terrified of you, and your four empty walls
and where will you be, when the curtain falls
what is home for you, what is happiness
whats the be all end all, whats accomplishment

'cuz i'm at the will of my hands, and i'm just a passenger
so full speed ahead, i'm still just a kid

so you'll make a gypsy of me, another feather in the wind
here in the meantime, then gone again
theres something burning in me, and theres a fire lit
..to wake the dreamer, make sure he's good for it

'cuz i'm at the will of my hands, and i'm just a passenger
so full speed ahead, i'm still just a kid
so full speed ahead, i'm still, just a kid

MOONLIGHT:

just one call and she'll stay all night, yeah just one call and she'll stay all night
and in the moonlight, my valentine
just one smile and she's all mine, yeah just one smile and she's all mine
and in the moonlight, our hearts sublime
yeah the moonlight, our hearts sublime

just one kiss, will make this right, yeah just one kiss, will make this right
and in the moonlight, she'll take her time
yeah this one girl, she's so fine, yeah this one girl, she's so fine
in the moonlight, ill make her mine
yeah the moonlight ill make her mine

BROKEN COMPASS:

stone's throw away, from fascination's, front gate
thought and long debate on how to weather the comin' days

of what grows wild on the eave of change
and finds itself through paths unpaved
the simple life, you dare escape

a song, that bares a weight, that banks on heavy moments, when it calls your name
he's free, yet bound to fate, his heart an emblem, a plume of pain

so he greets the night when its much past late, through the streets and past the gate
and on the dock a boat awaits, the ocean forms an empty slate
free the rope and pull away

he's gone, too far to say, a broken compass, will lead the way
'cuz home, from which he came, to where he's going, may always change

you pack your life into a bag, you take a chance like you take a drag.
have you fallen in love again, with the wind that knows no end

in a hurricane you will dance and caterwaul, singing' oh theres something in us all
in a hurricane you will dance and caterwaul, singing' oh theres something in us all

VANCOUVER: (dedicated to Gaye Delorme)

the colours melt in darkness, on the west side canvas,
fingers on the window pain, and my feet are firmly planted,
i'm off to see my friends again,  wont take my time for granted
from drunken' in a lamplit park, to dancing' like bandits
and i don't think i will sleep tonight, ill just soak up the moon
oh my its beautiful here, in june

sunny-side and homemade bread, with a pretty eyed stranger
we'd lie out in her garden, sunshine and savour
the clouds will take the shape of thoughts, but ill think about em later
too caught up in the atmosphere, to sink it to paper
and i don't think i will sleep tonight, ill just stay up with you
oh my its beautiful here, and oh my its beautiful here, in june

i stayed out on nelson street, near an old friend this summer
didn't know it at the time, but his days were numbered
the night the fire-bell rang, and all i felt were shivers
something struck a note in me, on the streets of vancouver
and the night the fire-bell rang, and all i felt were shivers
something really changed, in the streets, yeah the streets of vancouver

ANIMAL:

if i keep my  timing right, and i keep my secrets well
i will get what I want, until i'm belly full
it is a game tonight ,she knows but she wont tell
it is my heart you taunt, wild like an animal

between the scattered light, the shadows push and pull
and in an obscure font, the writing on the wall
there are mirrors in your eyes, and not a moment dull
it is my heart you taunt, wild like an animal

breathe in the morning' air, and follow me home
breathe in, the morning' air, and follow me, follow me home
