Possession
Listen as the wind blows from across the great divide voices trapped in yearning, memories trapped in time the night is my companion, and solitude my guide would I spend forever here and not be satisfied? and I would be the one to hold you down kiss you so hard I'll take your breath away and after, I'd wipe away the tears just close your eyes dear Through this world I've stumbled so many times betrayed trying to find an honest word to find the truth enslaved oh you speak to me in riddles and you speak to me in rhymes my body aches to breathe your breath your words keep me alive And I would be the one to hold you down kiss you so hard I'll take your breath away and after, I'd wipe away the tears just close your eyes dear Into this night I wander it's morning that I dread another day of knowing of the path I fear to tread oh into the sea of waking dreams I follow without pride nothing stands between us here and I won't be denied and I would be the one to hold you down kiss you so hard I'll take your breath away and after, I'd wipe away the tears just close your eyes...

Wait
Under a blackened sky far beyond the glaring streetlights sleeping on empty dreams the vultures lie in wait You lay down beside me then you were with me every waking hour so close I could feel your breath When all we wanted was the dream to have and to hold that precious little thing like every generation yields the new born hope unjaded by their years Pressed up against the glass I found myself wanting sympathy but to be consumed again oh I know would be the death of me and there is a love that's inherently given a kind of blindness offered to appease and in that light of forbidden joy oh I know I won't receive it When all we wanted was the dream to have and to hold that precious little thing like every generation yields the newborn hope unjaded by their years You know if I leave you now it doesn't mean that I love you any less it's just the state I'm in I can't be good to anyone else like this When all we wanted was the dream to have and to hold that precious little thing like every generation yields the new born hope unjaded by their years...

Plenty
I looked into your eyes they told me plenty I already knew you never felt a thing so soon forgotten all that you do in more than words I tried to tell you the more I tried I failed I would not let myself believe that you might stray and I would stand by you no matter what they'd say, I would have thought I'd be with you until my dying day until my dying day I used to think my life was often empty a lonely space to fill you hurt me more than I ever would have imagined you made my world stand still and in that stillness there was a freedom I never felt before I would not let myself believe that you might stray and I would stand by you no matter what they'd say, I would have thought I'd be with you until my dying day until my dying day

Good Enough
Hey your glass is empty it's a hell of a long way home why don't you let me take you it's no good to go alone I never would have opened up but you seemed so real to me after all the bullshit I've heard it's refreshing not to see I don't have to pretend she doesn't expect it from me Don't tell me I haven't been good to you don't tell me I have never been there for you don't tell me why nothing is good enough Hey little girl would you like some candy your momma said that it's OK The door is open come on outside no I can't come out today it's not the wind that cracked your shoulder and threw you to the ground who's there that makes you so afraid you're shaken to the bone and I don't understand you deserve so much more than this So don't tell me why he's never been good to you don't tell me why he's never been there for you don't you know that why is simply not good enough so just let me try and I will be good to you just let me try and I will be there for you I'll show you why you're so much more than good enough...

Mary
Mary walks down to the water's edge and there she hangs her head to find herself faded a shadow of what she once was She said "How long have I been sleeping and why do I feel so old why do I feel so cold my heart is saying one thing but my body won't let go" With trembling hands she reaches up a stranger's flesh is offered and I would be the last to know I would be the last the let it show I would be the last to go Take her hand she will lead you through the fire give you back hope and hope that you won't take too much respecting what is left she cradled us she held us in her arms unselfish in her suffering she could not understand that no one seemed to have the time to cherish what was given and I would be the last to know and I would be the last to let it show I would be the last to go... Mary walks...

Elsewhere
I love the time and in between the calm inside me in the space where I can breathe I believe there is a distance I have wandered to touch upon the years of reaching out and reaching in holding out holding in I believe this is heaven to no one else but me and I'll defend it as long as I can be left here to linger in silence if I choose to would you try to understand I know this love is passing time passing through like liquid I am drunk in my desire... but I love the way you smile at me I love the way your hands reach out and hold me near... I believe... I believe this is heaven to no one else but me and I'll defend it as long as I can be left here to linger in silence if I choose to would you try to understand Oh the quiet child awaits the day when she can break free the mold that clings like desperation Mother can't you see I've got to live my life the way I feel is right for me might not be right for you but it's right for me... I believe... I believe this is heaven to no one else but me and I'll defend it as long as I can be left here to linger in silence if I choose to would you try to understand it I would like to linger here in silence if I choose to would you understand it would you try to understand...

Circle
There are two of us talking in circles and one of us who wants to leave in a world created for only us an empty cage that has no key don't you know we're working with flesh and blood carving out of jealousy Crawling into each other it's smothering every little part of me What kind of love is this that keeps me hanging on despite everything it's doing to me what is this love that keeps me coming back for more when it will only end in misery I know too many people unhappy in a life from which they'd love to flee watching others get everything offered they're wanton for discovery Oh my brother my sister my mother you're loosing your identity can't you see that it's you in the window shining with intensity What kind of love is this that keeps me hanging on despite everything it's doing to me what is this love that keeps me coming back for more when it will only end in misery...

Ice
The ice is thin come on dive in underneath my lucid skin the cold is lost, forgotten Hours pass days pass time stands still light gets dark and darkness fills my secret heart forbidden... I think you worried for me then the subtle ways that I'd give in but I know you liked the show tied down to this bed of shame you tried to move around the pain but oh your soul is anchored The only comfort is the moving of the river You enter into me, a lie upon your lips offer what you can, I'll take all that I can get only a fool's here... I don't like your tragic sighs as if your god has passed you by well hey fool that's your deception your angels speak with jilted tongues the serpent's tale has come undone you have no strength to squander The only comfort is the moving of the river You enter into me, a lie upon your lips offer what you can, I'll take all that I can get only a fool's here to stay only a fool's here to stay only a fool's here...

Hold On
Hold on Hold on to yourself for this is gonna hurt like hell Hold on Hold on to yourself you know that only time will tell What is it in me that refuses to believe this isn't easier than the real thing My love you know that you're my best friend you know I'd do anything for you my love let nothing come between us my love for you is strong and true Am I in heaven here or am I... at the crossroads I am standing So now you're sleeping peaceful I lie awake and pray that you'll be strong tomorrow and we'll see another day and we will praise it and love the light that brings a smile across your face Oh god if you're out there won't you hear me I know that we've never talked before oh god the man I love is leaving won't you take him when he comes to your door Am I in heaven here or am I in hell at the crossroads I am standing So now you're sleeping peaceful I lie awake and pray that you'll be strong tomorrow and we'll see another day and we will praise it and love the light that brings a smile across your face... Hold on hold on to yourself for this is gonna hurt like hell

Ice Cream
Your love is better than ice cream better than anything else that I've tried and your love is better than ice cream everyone here know how to fight and it's a long way down it's a long way down it's a long way down to the place where we started from Your love is better than chocolate better than anything else that I've tried oh love is better than chocolate everyone here knows how to cry it's a long way down it's a long way down it's a long way down to the place where we started from...

Fear
Morning smiles like the face of a newborn child innocent unknowing Winter's end promises of a long lost friend speaks to me of comfort but I fear I have nothing to give I have so much to lose here in this lonely place tangled up in our embrace there's nothing I'd like better than to fall but I fear I have nothing to give Wind in time rapes the flower trembling on the vine nothing yields to shelter it from above they say temptation will destroy our love the never ending hunger but I fear I have nothing to give I have so much to lose here in this lonely place tangled up in our embrace there's nothing I'd like better than to fall but I fear I have nothing to give I have so much to lose I have nothing to give We have so much to lose...

Fumbling Towards Ecstasy
All the fear has left me now I'm not frightened anymore It's my heart that pounds beneath my flesh it's my mouth that pushes out this breath and if I shed a tear I won't cage it I won't fear love and if I feel a rage I won't deny it I won't fear love Companion to our demons they will dance, and we will play With chairs, candles, and cloth making darkness in the day It will be easy to look in or out upstream or down without a thought and if I shed a tear I won't cage it I won't fear love and if I feel a rage I won't deny it I won't fear love Peace in the struggle to find peace comfort on the way to comfort and if I shed a tear I won't cage it I won't fear love and if I feel a rage I won't deny it I won't fear love I won't fear love I won't fear love...
