That old dog has chained you up alright
Give you everything you need
To live inside a twisted cage
Sleep beside an empty rage
I had a dream I was your hero

Damn I wish I was your lover
I'll rock you till the daylight comes
Make sure you are smiling and warm
I am everything
Tonight I'll be your mother I will
Do such things to ease your pain
Free your mind and you won't feel ashamed

Open up on the inside gonna fill you up gonna make you cry

This monkey can't stand to see you black and blue
Give you something sweet each time you
Come inside my jungle book
What is it just too good
Don't say you'll stay
'Cause then you go away

Damn I wish I was your lover
I'll rock you till the daylight comes
Make sure you are smiling and warm
I am everything
Tonight I'll be your mother I will
Do such things to ease your pain
Free your mind and you won't feel ashamed

Shucks, for me there is no other
You're the only shoe that fits
I can't imagine I'll grow out of it
Damn I wish I was your lover

If I was your girl believe me
I'd turn on the Rolling Stones
We could groove along and feel much better
I could do it forever and ever
Give me an hour to kiss you
Walk through heaven's door I'm sure
We don't need no doctor to feel much better
Let me in
Forever and ever and ever and ever 

I sat on a mountainside with peace of mind
I lay by the ocean making love to her with visions clear
Walked for days with no one near
And I return as chained and bound to you 

Damn I wish I was your lover
I'll rock you till the daylight comes
Make sure you are smiling and warm
I am everything
Tonight I'll be your mother I will
Do such things to ease your pain
Free your mind and you won't feel ashamed

Shucks, for me there is no other
You're the only shoe that fits
I can't imagine I'll grow out of it
Damn I wish I was your lover

Just open up I'm gonna come inside I wanna fill you up I wanna make you cry.....
(Damn I wish I was your lover)
Gettin' on the subway and I'm comin' uptown....
(Damn I wish I was your lover)
Standing on a street corner waiting for my love to change....
(Damn I wish I was your lover)
Feelin' like a school boy, too shy and too young....
(Damn I wish I was your lover)
Open up I wanna come inside I wana fill you up I wanna make you cry....
(Damn I wish I was your lover)
Gettin' on my camel and I'll ride it uptown....
(Damn I wish I was your lover)

Oh angel it's understood
What we could
Do together's every bit much better than good
I ain't looking for the sky to
Cover my head
Cover me I'll cover you again and again and again

Stay up all night to feed your fire
My day's a dream with you on my mind
I wake up tight full of desire
And you are the one who can unwind
My weather's always a surprise
Don't think you'll ever come prepared
But love's the lighthouse in my life
If you get scared

When you look in my eyes
Do you have faith like me
Love can heal the wounds
That cry us all to sleep
When you hear nature's voice
Whispering in your ear
Is heaven a-rejoicing
Even through the tears
When you become your light
Shining like the sun
Is peace within your mind
Where everything is one
Evil will not destroy
When love is in your hand
Now we can make believe
The mysteries we understand

Us angels we give it up
Just enough
Keep each other hanging on with a heavenly touch
I ain't playing with a goal to
Cover my ass
I am naked like a baby in the summer grass

New York's the only place I know
I'll take you on a guided tour
Through Central Park where only those
With seven senses feel secure
Then from my rooftop in the clouds
We'll drive into the glowing sea
And when we're falling look around
And tell me what you see

When you look in my eyes
Do you have faith like me
Love can heal the wounds
That cry us all to sleep
When you hear nature's voice
Whispering in your ear
Is heaven a-rejoicing
Even through the tears
When you become your light
Shining like the sun
Is peace within your mind
Where everything is one
Evil will not destroy
When love is in your hand
Now we can make believe
The mysteries we understand

. . .



I lied
I stole in the name of fear
But I won't be silent here

I don't want somewhere to run to
I don't want somebody I can shake
Lord I want my dignity again
Before I walk on fire
You gotta look me in the face

I won't flinch
And I won't turn away

I'm sorry
I'm sorry for being scared
But I won't drop you there
Oh darling
Let me show you I love you
Oh world
Let me show you I care

I don't want somewhere to run to
I don't want somebody I can shake
Lord I want my dignity again
Before I walk on fire
You gotta look me in the face

Give me back my touch
Give me back my feeling
Give me everything
I wanna be your witness

. . .



I saw you there
All I wanted was to start with you
Was the hardest thing I ever had to do
Till I made you care

Yo brother
You sure heard me
Banging on the big drums for your love
You called me baby then
Talked to me like your best friend
When the time was right you were so good
Asked me what I like
And I said

Don't stop swaying baby
You soothe my soul and I stop searching
When I get lost in the rhythm
Everything stops hurting
Don't stop swaying baby
Take it slow
And I keep yearning

Again I fall
Lighter than the morning dew
Fresh
'Cause I always never knew
What I'm stumbling on

Yo sister
You sure heard me
Singing in the rain for some love
You took me unaware
Said things to make me care
Now the time is ripe and you're so good
Ask me what I like and I say

Don't stop swaying baby
You soothe my soul and I stop searching
When I get lost in the rhythm
Everything stops hurting
Don't stop swaying baby
Take it slow
And I keep yearning

Spoken:
Hansel and Gretel are holding hands deep in the forest. They are lost. This is
their own story. The two have fallen in love, and so, after a long quietness
amidst the creatures of the night, they begin to kiss. Traveling like heat
through each other's bodies, they pass through centuries of insecurity and into
a rhythm where they are not afraid.
(Don't stop swaying baby...)
Mamma has led these children into the wild unknown for reasons, known, with
father's help, of course, they tried very hard to get back home, but of course,
they could not.
(Don't stop swaying baby...)
And so, they find themselves through the darkness, through the sadness, making
love, making peace, making music. They find themselves, through the chaos,
making sense. This is what they want. This is who they are. These are the
things they need.

. . .



The guilty undertaker sighs,
The lonely organ grinder cries,
The silver saxophones say I should refuse you.
The cracked bells and washed-out horns
Blow into my face with scorn,
But it's not that way,
I wasn't born to lose you.
I want you, I want you,
I want you so bad,
Honey, I want you.

The drunken politician leaps
Upon the street where mothers weep
And the saviors who are fast asleep,
They wait for you.
And I wait for them to interrupt
Me drinkin' from my broken cup
And ask me to
Open up the gate for you.
I want you, I want you,
I want you so bad,
Honey, I want you.

Now all my fathers, they've gone down,
True love they've been without it.
But all their daughters put me down
'Cause I don't think about it.

Well, I return to the Queen of Spades
And talk with my chambermaid.
She knows that I'm not afraid
To look at her.
She is good to me
And there's nothing she doesn't see.
She knows where I'd like to be
But it doesn't matter.
I want you, I want you,
I want you so bad,
Honey, I want you.

Now your dancing child with his Chinese suit,
He spoke to me, I took his flute.
No, I wasn't very cute to him,
Was I?
But I did it, though, because he lied
Because he took you for a ride
And because time was on his side
And because I ...
I want you, I want you,
I want you so bad,

. . .



I'm dancing in the shadows of life
And death is all around me tonight
I miss you making love to me right
Beside myself I'm holding you tight
Someone is waiting for me to rise
And dive into the ocean I cried
And I cried and I cried my baby to sleep
Beside myself my soul to keep

Right beside you I see
Right beside you I stay
Right beside you I'll be
Right beside you always

We're dancing in the shade of the summer sun
The drums are playing the change to come
Was yesterday in the heat
Beside myself I need to keep

Right beside you I feel
Right beside you I am
Right beside you I kneel (beside you)
Right beside you I stand
Right beside you I see (oooh)
Right beside you I stay
Right beside you I'll be
Right beside you always

Driving into town with the top down
Sun sinking low into the water I can feel your speed
One hand on the wheel one hand on my knee
I can tell you what I want you can tell me what you need
Darling nights are getting cooler and the city's so close
There's a place we can do it somewhere right along the coast
We'll arrive on time just a little bit late
It's not a matter of style just a lesson in taste

I remember when I was a child
You made me up to be your lover
Now I'm sitting right beside you
Other people still exist
I don't pretend to love them less but darling
When you drive this way I lose my breath

Right beside you I feel
Right beside you I am
Right beside you I kneel (beside you)
Right beside you (oooh) I stand
Right beside you I see (beside you)
Right beside you (oooh beside you) I stay
Right beside you (oooh) I'll be
Right beside you

Always
Right beside you I feel
Right beside you (oooh) I am
Right beside you I kneel (beside you)
Right beside you I stand
Right beside you I see (beside you)
Right beside you (oooh) I stay
Right beside you (beside you) I'll be

. . .



It felt like spring time on this February morning
In the courtyard birds were singing your praise
I'm still recalling things you said to make me feel
Alright I carried them with me today now

As I lay me down to sleep
This I pray
That you will hold me dear
Though I'm far away
I'll whisper your name
Into the sky
And I will wake up happy

I wonder why
I feel so high though I am not above the sorrow
Heavy hearted 'till you call my name
And it sounds like church bells or the whistle of a train
On a summer evening I'll run to meet you barefoot
Barely breathing

As I lay me down to sleep
This I pray
That you will hold me dear
Though I'm far away
I'll whisper your name
Into the sky
And I will wake up happy (oh darling)

As I lay me down to sleep
This I pray
That you will hold me dear
Though I'm far away
I'll whisper your name
Into the sky
And I will wake up happy

It's not too near for me
Like a flower I need the rain
Though it's not clear to me
Every season has its change
And I will see you
When the sun comes out again

As I lay me down to sleep
This I pray
That you will hold me dear
Though I'm far away
I'll whisper your name
Into the sky
And I will wake up happy (oh oh...)

As I lay me down to sleep
This I pray
That you will hold me dear
Though I'm far away
I'll whisper your name
Into the sky
And I will wake up happy

I wonder why
(hmmm)
When the sun comes out again
When the sun comes out again
When the sun comes out again
When the sun comes out again (oooh)
When the sun comes out again
When the sun comes out again (hmmm)
(comes out comes out oooh)
And I will wake up happy

. . .



I'm a wounded soldier on a downtown train to your place
You've launched a secret heart with your face
You don't always say what I want to hear but you move me
Across the rooftops and into the deepest blue sea

Did we not choose each other
Are we just heroes for a day
This time I will stand by you
And mine is the heart I will save (hey-ey-ey-ey)

I drew a hard line but I just can't see it
You colours are bleeding all over my bullshit
I wanna be your star but I gotta learn to feel myself
I want your love and I need your help

Did we not choose each other
Are we just heroes for a day
This time I will stand by you
And mine is the heart I will save
Can we not judge each other
I'd rather wipe your tears away
I can follow my heart till the end
But I just can't choose the way

Just because we live like dolphins together
So many reasons to break the wave
We can swim from streetlamp to streetlamp whatever
We can be kissing in the rain (hey-ey-ey-ey)

Can we not judge each other
I'd rather wipe your tears away
I can follow my heart till the end
But I just can't choose the way

[solo]

Listen baby listen baby don't you do me wrong
I can make my bed you can sing your song
Ain't nobody else gonna make you shine
If it's truth you seek then darling love you'll find (oooh)
I don't wanna I don't wanna take your pain away
It isn't yours to give (oooh) it isn't mine to save
Here's my heart here's my hand here's my soul
Take it in take it apart take it easy let it go (ooh-ooh)

Did we not choose each other
+ Listen baby listen baby don't you do me wrong
Are we just heroes for a day
+ I can make my bed you can sing your song
This time I will stand by you
+ Ain't nobody else gonna make you shine
And mine is the heart I will save
+ If it's truth you seek then darling love you'll find (each other each other
....)
Can we not judge each other
+ I don't wanna I don't wanna take your pain away
I'd rather wipe your tears away
+ It isn't yours to give it isn't mine to save
I can follow my heart till the end
+ Here's my heart here's my hand here's my soul
But I just can't choose the way
+ Take it in take it apart take it easy let it go (oooh)

Did we not choose each other
+ Listen baby listen baby don't you do me wrong
Are we just heroes for a day
+ I can make my bed you can sing your song
This time I will stand by you
+ Ain't nobody else gonna make you shine
And mine is the heart I will save
+ If it's truth you seek then darling love you'll find
Can we not judge each other
+ I don't wanna I don't wanna take your pain away
I'd rather wipe your tears away
+ It isn't yours to give it isn't mine to save
I can follow my heart till the end
+ Here's my heart here's my hand here's my soul
But I just can't choose the way

You don't know why I'm crazy
I don't know why you're blue
You messed with my head you messed with the dead now I'm gonna mess with you
I don't know why you're lazy
I'm so in love with you
What's God gonna see who's God gonna know when's God gonna help us through
I can't deny I can't explain I can't reply I can't refrain
I want his hands I want his chest I want his feet I want his sex
I am the child I am the whore I am the wild woman at your door
I need to touch I need to talk I need to love I need to give you you up

What am I fighting for
If I win I lose my life
I need you more and more to break my will tonight

Only love can set us free
Only love can bear the truth
Only love can bring us peace
Only love can save me and you

Oh daddy what I've been thinking
Only heaven knows
What's Ma gonna see who's Ma gonna blame when's Mama gonna carry you home

I have the urge I have the mind I have the touch I drank the wine
I want the loss I want the pain I want to start my life again
I can't define I can't forget I can't explain the feeling of regret
I know the dead I'm not alone I made my bed I want to let you you go

What am I frightened for
If I speak I lose my mind
You've broken down the door and there is no place to hide

Only love can set us free
Only love can bear the truth
Only love can bring us peace
Only love can save me and you
Only love can purify
Only love can conquer fear
Only love can testify
Only love can make a miracle of life

Only love can set us free
Only love can bear the truth
Only love can bring us peace
Only love can save me and you (yeah)
Only love can purify
Only love can conquer fear (oooh)
Only love can testify

. . .



I ain't gonna be your fool
You know this lady is not waiting for words untrue
I have to die

'Cause I'd rather crawl home bleeding than be
Chained to you I love your freedom
Hate me need me love me tease me
Beg me please me take me breathe me
Baby you know I'm trouble still you
You wanna be the one to smash my bubble
How strong how tough how sweet how must
You feel to rough me up for real

In love I trust I put my faith
To make me happy to keep me safe
In you I find a way to lose myself
Thrill me baby I need nothing else

I ain't gonna be your dog
You know this lady's contemplating your worth at all
I'll make you cry

'Cause I'd lose you than lose my way
Oh you know I don't mean it I only suffer when I go astray
Your words they sting you make me sing
I want to bring you everything
Jesus I feel what you mean to me
I want to meet you on a dirt road and walk with you endlessly
Oh Lord my God when you get hard
How can I stop how can I not

In love I trust I put my faith
To make me happy to keep me safe
In you I see the brightest star
That burns inside me and breaks my heart
And when I cry the deepest hurting
Cleans my soul relieves my burden
In you I find a way to lose myself
Thrill me baby I need nothing else

[solo]
I need nothing else

In love I must feel all my pain
And all my joy and all my shame
And every time you call on me
Through my struggles you set me free
To feel your power your gracious strength
And on my knees (oooh) it's your restraint
That makes me find one greater than myself
Love me baby
Love me baby, I need I need I need I need

Virgil Cain is my name
And I served on the Danville train
Till Stoneman's cavalry came
And tore up the tracks again
In the winter of '65
We were hungry
Just barely alive
I took the train to Richmond had fell
It was a time I remember oh so well

The night they drove old Dixie down
And all the bells were ringing
The night they drove old Dixie down
And all the people were singing
They went... "La la la la la la, la la la la la la la la la"

Back with my wife in Tennessee
One day she came to me
"Virgil, Look, come see! There goes Robert E. Lee!"
Well I don't mind chopping wood
And I don't care if the money's no good
But you take what you need and leave the rest
And they should never have taken the very best

The night they drove old Dixie down
And all the bells were ringing
The night they drove old Dixie down
And all the people were singing
They went... "La la la la la la, la la la la la la la la la"

Like my father before me
I am a working man
And like my brother above me
I took a rebel stand
He was just eighteen
Proud and brave
But a Yankee laid him in his grave
I swear by the blood beneath my feet
You can't raise the cane back up when it's in defeat

The night they drove old Dixie down
And all the bells were ringing
The night they drove old Dixie down
And all the people were singing

(La la la la la la, la la la la la la la la la)

The night they drove old Dixie down
And all the bells were ringing
The night they drove old Dixie down
And all the people were singing

(La la la la la la, la la la la la la la la la)

The night they drove old Dixie down
And all the bells were ringing
The night they drove old Dixie down
And all the people were singing


. . .



Falling falling
Into the river of your soul
For me to know
I am floating on this current to somewhere
Where love abounds
Distant calling
The sun goes down the beasts start home
Say come along
I ain't about to shake off this sweet water
It's warm

Oh babe you weren't wrong
I swing from limb to limb but it's your stuff that keeps me hanging on
My home is in your jungle, with your skies so blue
Those monkeys gave us much to love, you copy me I'll copy you

Kissing kissing
Beneath the trees we know so well
If they could tell
Of generations
Hugging hugging
And rubbing go much slower
As you get low
I don't want to miss on one sensation (oh babe)

Oh babe you weren't wrong
I swing from limb to limb but it's your stuff that keeps me hanging on
My home is in your jungle, with your skies so blue
Those monkeys gave us much to love, you copy me I'll copy you

Babe it's alright
I can swing on anything as long as when I come you hold me tight
My home is in your jungle, with your skies so blue
Those monkeys left us much to learn, you show me how I'll show you too

Oh babe you weren't wrong
I swing from limb to limb but it's your stuff that keeps me hanging on
My home is in your jungle, with your skies so blue
Those monkeys gave us much to love, you copy me I'll copy you

Babe it's alright
I can swing on anything as long as when I come you hold me tight
My home is in your jungle, with your skies so blue
Those monkeys left us much to learn, you show me how I'll show you too

My home is in your jungle, with your skies so blue
I'll show you too babe
Oooh
