Oh My Love – Lyrics

Oh, my love
Dearest love
How I hate to leave you now

Oh my dear
Time to leave
One day I’ll be back somehow

In the days I’ll be fine
I’ve got work all the time
But nights are painful sleepless hours

Shine or rain
Lover’s pain
Torment my soul and brain

Darling, it’s two weeks, it’s not for ever
Travelling to Spain’s a change, however
Did you bring your sweater?
Nights can be cold

I have packed an umbrella for you
Watch for girls who say they know a fellow to you
They may bring diseases
And rob you too

As it seems
No sweet dreams
Come from drinking much gin

Mind the rain
Over Spain, Use outer
Garments and soles, my friend

Carry On – Lyrics

Sitting by the window watching passers by
Flattened faces, private spaces, drip-and-dry
This town’s such a hopeless blues, it makes you cry
This girl says she wants me, loves me, Wonder why

Lying sleepless listening to the city night
Traffic noise, screaming voices, brutal fights
Clock keeps ticking, morning brings a gloomy light
Girl beside me dreams of love, but I’m uptight

She’s not the one – I’ll get back on the road, again
Tell her fare-well and button my coat, again
Step in my boots, see foot follow foot
Sticks and stones may
Break my bones
Carry on

Country folks and city people see me roam
Those who touch get damaged by this heart of stone
Looking for a way to end my hopeless quest
Looking for a place where I can finally rest

Standing indecisive before heaven’s door
Far below the world presents a stunning show
Land of green, sea of blue and golden shores
An angel speaks and touches me like none before

It’s not time yet – so get back on the road, my friend
Go live a life – and button up your coat, and then
I’ll be your path – see foot follow foot
Sticks and stones may
Break your bones
Carry on

This lovely day – Lyrics

Nights are darker and there’s autumn in the air, in the air
Morning mist with scent of soil is everywhere
As the sun breaks through the greyness – bright and fair, bright and fair
Melancholy melts away – Dear son you’re here

In this house where you were born
Bags are ready by the door
Full of memories and objects for your home

Cleaned the attic yesterday
Much got wasted, some would stay
The most precious packed to follow far away

You are destined for tomorrow
I will stay with yesterday
But we’ll be together on this lovely day

Running barefoot to the sea
Racing fiercely you and me
I am first to jump the jetty, flying free

Lying, drying on the beach
Talking meaningful and deep
Sun is warm and gradually we fall asleep

You are destined for tomorrow
I will stay with yesterday
Here we are together on this lovely day

Waking suddenly we find that you are late, you are late
There’s a bus and there’s a flight; and they won’t wait
So I row you in my boat across the strait, cross the strait
Like so many times before, we are in haste

Hit the landing making noise
Struggling hard to keep my poise
There is something in my eyes and in my voice

“Son, when you have joy to share,
Or if life is hard to bear
You just call across the ocean – I’ll be there”

You are destined for tomorrow
I will stay with yesterday
And we’ve been together on this lovely day

Free – Lyrics

”Free”, I said to him ”I must be free!”
”We”, he asked ”Is that the end of we?”

Gradually, painfully, we will be,  completely separately

”Now”, she told me ”I will leave you now”
”Love”, I asked her ”What about our love?”

”Floods of tears, through days and years, in despair, our love will disappear

I don’t regret leaving though loving him dearly
It seems for the first time I do see him clearly
We were too close – too dependent to bother
’bout anyone, anything except for each other

We made our love a bond that tied us                                                (man)
Not a moving sea between the shores of our souls
We weren’t separate strings making music together
We were the same string that tension would break …… whenever

Free, to know someone inside of me
Free, to grow and see what life could be

Affinity, Sweet sympathy, In memory, Forever you and me

 

The blessed day – Lyrics

On the highest mountain By the deep blue sea
We sat for quite some time Together you and me
We looked upon the world Resplendent at our feet
It was the seventh day Creation was complete

Days come after days Weeks turn into years
Gradually our traces Fade and disappear
We looked upon the world Resplendent at our feet
It was the seventh day and Creation was complete

We spoke in words of silver Our silences were gold
Of pearls and precious gems Was poetry untold
Wind and scents caressed us Tore off our disguise
We were the only people Still left in paradise

Days come after days Weeks turn into years
Gradually our traces Fade and disappear
Wind and scents caressed us Tore off our disguise
We were the only people Still left in paradise

Beyond the dark blue mountains Over a foreign land
Lies poisonous smog from factories Selling happiness to man
But gadgets, cars and luxury Satisfy but not for long
I’d rather travel lightly And swap all for a song

Days come after days Weeks turn into years
Gradually our traces Fade and disappear
Under twinkling stars Asleep after rebirth
We dreamt about the blessed day We lived on planet earth
