Poetry and Lyrics

“I have always written songs/poems, I love words and put them together sometimes I will have a tune to go with it, other times I see the pictures inside my head. I see them visually dance before me and take flight upon my page…I don’t do them for you, I do them for me, for I know they’re not everyone’s cuppa tea….”

Alien2020-02-12T16:26:59+00:00

We are Alien in Alien skin
feels like rubber
Keeps the heat within
Two eyes like black hole
My brain calculates
This time too late
Humans inhabit these green pasture lands
Knowing nothing of the Alien man
My story is simple, easy to tell
Once out easy to sell

I’m stuck in Alien skin
I’m stuck in Alien Skin
Moving around humans is hard these days
must try to adjust to unfamiliar ways
I come from a planet a lifetime from here
Dying no water in a bleak atmosphere
My body clocks faster
So I’ll be gone soon
My friends will bury me on a graveyard moon
My story is simple and easy to tell
Once out easy to sell

I’m stuck in a Alien skin
I’m stuck in a Alien skin
We are Aliens that come here in peace
Minging with sadness at what’s happening
For your world will go the same awful way
Through Neglect, Poison, and Decay.

Brute of Cute2020-02-12T15:21:30+00:00

Life is sweet and you’re so cute
I’d like to wear you like a suit
Throw you down the garbage chute
Walk you round boot
Chained and trained to worship me
Ah the brute is free

Tart you up my red dress on
Feel the dark side of the sun
Take you down to the bottom
of the sea
drown you in sweet ecstasy
Chained and trained to worship me
Ah the brute is free

Look in my eyes and you can see
I despise the lies you tried on me
your the door and i’m the key
beg for more get on your knees
Chained and trained to worship me
Ah the brute is free

Like a soup stain on my tie
mess with me and you will die
such sweet death is all you’re worth
this lady kill and will rebirth
Trained and chained to worship me
Ah the brute is free

Cupboard2020-02-12T15:43:06+00:00

There’s a little cupboard under the stairs
We call it the junk room where nobody cares
In pretty pink flowers from a long time ago
Inside the door painted chipped indigo
At three in the morning the room comes alive
The door open shuts like someone arrived
Banging and footsteps the music goes on
A sweet sound of time, time long since gone.

I’m lonely, I’m frightened
I see the past in front of me
Its 3 in the morning
And I am Lying in bed
The old gramophone record
Playing in my head
Not again I cry
I want it to go away
I need to the sunrise of another day

I put on my slippers and slip down the stairs
He knows that I am coming so long prepared
The smell that I’m smelling heavy as peat roses iron
sour yet sweet
Its dark in the hallway winds blowing outside
I feel the house and the house feels a live
I walk into the cupboard the light burning bright
sounds of the music that makes my head light.

I’m lonely, I’m frighten
I see the past in front of me
It changes it happens
each night my destiny

He turns and smiles
and holds out his hand
He walks towards me
Hes so beautifully grand
The look in his eye were sad
But with passion
his clothes were very old fashion

The rope is singing from the beam up above
Calls out like a warm arm a hand in a glove
I try to scream, but the fear is too deep
Next thing I know is blackness of sleep
Morning has come
But you still have the fear
Cos you know thats night always near

I’m lonely, I’m frighten
I see the past in front of me
It changes it happens
Night after night my destiny
Night after night my destiny
night after night
Morning has come, but nights always near
He turn and smiles
Hold out his hand
He walks towards me
He so beautifully grand
The in his eyes are sad
but with passion
I cry I want you to just go away
I need the sunrise of another day.

Davie2020-02-12T16:26:46+00:00

Dear Davie you don’t know me
I’m your avid fan you see
been a fan for years
You’ve see me through all my fears
I love you oh so much
Please don’t think me a little touched
my heart goes out to you, In everything you do
I like to watch you every day
To help me keep the demon away

I am your avid fan
Watch you whenever I can
I know you don’t know me
But you will do, wait and see!
I ring you day and night
I am not trying to give you a fright
But I like to hear your voice
For me I have no choice
I dream of you at night
I know thats not right
I can’t help it you see
I feel you’re part of me
I am just a your avid fan
Just doing what I can

To get close to you
and watch the things you do

I like to be in your life
I know you’ve got a wife!
But I don’t care you see
because she is her not me

Doll2020-02-12T16:28:05+00:00

I once had a pretty doll
Her big eyes and lips in a bow
Painted so pretty her used to grow
A present from mummy a long time ago
I loved her and dress her and took her to tea
Bounced her and cuddle her upon my knee
We used to go for walks mother and me
and take her with us down by the sea

But i lost my doll by the brook one day
I cried for a week
But the pain wouldn’t go away
Down to the stream to look everyday

Years later i was walking by the brook
And i had to take one last look
Lying there in a bed of tangle hair
Was my dearest dolly fair

But i lost my doll by the brook one day
I cried for a week
But the pain wouldn’t go a way
Down to the stream to look everyday
Now my dolly here to stay
Now my dolly here to stay

Don’t Let The Grass Grow Under Your Feet2020-02-12T16:26:37+00:00

Don’t let the grass grow under your feet
I want to hear that music beat
I want to scream and shout and say
I want you to go away
When that voodoo powered flows
Into my veins and it explodes
Into my head, don’t let me die
before I am dead
And when you hear
That demon beat
You gotta get of off your seat
I want to scream and shout and pray
I want you to stay away
And as I get down upon my knees
I’m begging, begging please
I’m not your clown, get out of town
As the voodoo dancers dance
such passion and romance
the music fills my head
its the dance of the living dead
So if you hear that thumping beat
And its deep dark and sweet
Don’t hang around
Get out of town

Free As The Wind2020-02-12T13:54:08+00:00

She a rag doll with flowers in her matt hair
Her crimson lips, and ivory skin
Your never know just where she been
She my rag doll
and I love her so,
She’s free as the wind
She’s free as the wind
And as white as snow,
And dances wherever she goes
I whant to tell her
All so much
I love no other
and crave her touch
How can I tell her
That flower child
That was born
To be so wild
She my rag doll
and I love her so
She free as the wind
and skin white as snow
Jasmine bloom fill the room
From her perfume
Her feet are bare
She doesn’t care
Snowflakes, heartache
I hide my pain
My ragdoll
Will never change

Garden of Love2020-02-12T15:23:48+00:00

I went to the garden one sunny day
To escape from the hustle of life down below
Perhaps it was fate, or what could I say
for I chose the spot where the flowers don’t grow

I went to the terrace one sunny day
The sun was beating down
and wanted to play
But as I got up there
I just thought of you
and chose the spot where the flowers don’t grow

The flowers don’t grow, the flowers don’t grow
I just chose the spot were the flowers don’t grow

Moving around like a cat in a trance
Loving you makes me sing and dance
Its been six months with no telephone call
Baby don’t treat me like a fool
It was sad at first when you said it was over
But now I just go were the flowers don’t grow
you shouldn’t have left me that sunny day
I shouldn’t have stabbed you, What can I say

Buried beneth the plasic daffodils
Digging you up just to give me a thril
you thought you could leave me
But here you will stay

Haven2020-02-11T22:01:57+00:00

We’ve come so far
I heard then say
Like crashing on the bay
We move through Time
Will never part
For you my surly stole my heart
For the first time
I saw you long ago
I knew there was a place
In my freak show
To put you there
And never let you go
The ring master
In her side show
You pay your money
And what do you get
Something that you rather forget
For love is the master
Behind the disguise
In those lying crying eyes

Hot Love2020-02-11T22:09:43+00:00

You see them by the boulevard
On a lazy summer night
They’re headed for their secret Place
Away from side street lights
Young Boy, young night, he sets the scene
Young girl, young love, she smiles
Hard music from a cross the road
They listen for a while
The sounds of breaking waves roll in
And the salt-spray all around
Then sensing that the moments right
He gently lays her down
Her self restraints are swept away
Emotion take control
She gives him all she has to give
Hot Love and rock and roll
Their loving through, she fall asleep
She wouldn’t if she know
That while she’s sleeping unaware
He leaves her there alone

Intruder2020-02-12T16:27:09+00:00

Step into my house
What do I see
An Intruder staring back at me
I wanted to scream
So full of fright
I picked up the hammer
and turn on the light

You’ve come to rob me
I finally said and the look in his eyes filled me with dread
He moves towards me in a threatening way,
Don’t come any closer I manage to say,
I will use this you know
I think I said it, or did I, Don’t know!

You break into my house
you violate my space
Your my little secret
Just my little secret.

All I remember my arms swinging around,
As though they were attached to a doll of a clown,
He had a knife,that he would have use on me,
Cos obviously I wasn’t his cup of tea

He went down on his knees
with his eyes open wide,
He looked like a man
who seemed surprised
Don’t fuck with me,
I said in his ear,
Cos nobody know you are here,
And nobody will
cos i’ll be quite as a mouse
how dare you come into my house
your my little secret, you’re just my little secret..

Light2020-02-12T13:55:53+00:00

I want to go,
Where the light just glows
I want to see things
That I have never seen before
I want to mix and dance
as if life was one long trance
But lying here
On the operating table
Doctors doing what they can
My heart beat is slow
on the scan
Love flows away
and may come back
Another day if I watch and wait
But I think its too late
And I know I’ve got to go
I think back to
What I’ve done
And who I am
Living on the run
Life was a struggle with the hustle and bustle
But as I die and kiss the world goodbye
Mummy don’t cry
Just Kiss me goodbye
I look up and in my minds eye
I see a light
and the angels take flight
Im cosy and warm
To the light I’m drawn
Floating away
I just have to say
I shouldn’t have gone out of the house
That day
I shouldn’t have gone on my bike to play
It was just not my day

Lounge Lizard2020-02-12T16:27:32+00:00

Call me lounge lizard
As I lay across my bed
And all the tory shit
Pumped inside my head

They come from Mars
I heard them say
Experiments gone wrong
First they experiment on Animals
Then they start on you
Far over the galaxy
They call this the Human Zoo

You don’t choose life
Life chooses you
and what you do with it
Its up to you
I am telling you make the most of it

Love2020-02-11T22:05:37+00:00

I never notice until now
What love was all about
Its of two people and feelings
Sorting problems out
Its their trust for one another
And saying they really care
Its when you need a shoulder
And his is always there.

Love Song2020-02-12T13:57:58+00:00

Loving you hurts like hell
You wouldn’t know what it feels like
I can Tell
The way you say it so coolly
So matter of fact
You Haven’t the fucking idea
How I would react

The Mouse on a wheel
Just going around and around
Trapped within a cage
My feet not touching the ground
Where night brings the heavy
Curtain of doom
Which totally fills my bedroom

Why don’t the stars twinkle anymore
Why can’t I see the Ocean
Break across the shore
Why do I feel my heart to heavy
like a big open door
Why did you have to tell me
you don’t love me no more

When you said you loved me
You knew there was someone else
How could you hide something So deep
And be true to yourself
When you sat around the table
And we’d laugh late at night
Now I know why the sex wasn’t right
You were in Love with another
From far away
OH! Why! Oh Why!
Did you give the game away.

Lust2020-02-11T22:03:36+00:00

Save my soul
As my lovers gone
Walk out the door
For I have done him wrong
I Fell in lust with another man
And broke his heart
Only as a devil can
I walk around these old rooms
And I know I have lost at a cost

For my hopes, and fears
Have drain away
For he will never come back to stay
If you didn’t think your heart could hurt
Days turn to night and night to day
As you feel your life just drain away
Oh why, oh why, did I do it
Oh why, oh why, was I weak
Oh why, Oh why, was the grass greener
Oh why, Oh why, was I in so deep
In my dream you hold me tight
In my dreams you kiss me goodnight
It my dreams you’re still there
In my dreams you still care

Missing2020-02-11T22:11:59+00:00

I could say it didn’t matter
And pretend I didn’t care
But that doesn’t stop me
Missing you
Each moment you’re not there
I could say that it was over
And let you go your way
But that wouldn’t stop me wishing
You might decide to stay
I could say that I don’t need you
And find somebody new
But I know he’d never make me feel
The way I feel with you
So simply say I miss you lover
More that you will ever know
And I want you to remember
I’ll always love you so

Nature2020-02-11T21:57:24+00:00

As I stand
with tears of joy
Flood over me
I see the light
with serenity
The Swan that glides
upon a lake
A bird that sing
A day break
A tree that flows
with leaves up high
Squirrel hordes a
nut pie
Enchanting Bee’s
Butterfly fly’s
under the pale
blue morning sky
The mist that lifts
To reveal the soft moss
Spiders spin webs of candy floss
Daffodils and lily white
for the Elve’s have got it right

Nicotine Queen2020-02-11T22:00:52+00:00

I’m a 60 a day girl
I’m going to hell
No time to eat
No time to sleep
To spark up I live for
Joints are my encore
I like to drag it in
So it makes my head spin

Its Hard to stop
I’m in a strop
My minds gone mad
I need a fag
Put it to my lips and take a drag
I’m so broke
Got no dope
I know it looks bad
But its driving me mad!

Silk cut to buy more
Cartier to die for
I like to drag it in
Cause it make my head spin
Rolling my own
Just makes me sit at home alone
Cos thats all I really need

IS THE WEED!!

Pebbles and Snails2020-02-12T15:16:01+00:00

Every things alright
every things ok
I’m going to sing
while Bo plays

Things have been going
pretty bad until today
all I want to
Is to hear Bo play

When a rabble of gipsies
happened down our way
I sang to them
while Bo played

They promised us money
or jewels as pay
So I sang to them
and Bo did play

From the stars in the sky
To the fish in the sea
They tore our world
topsy turvy, and every thing suddenly
came our way
A perfect day
As I sang and Bo played

To the smell of amber
Birds singing bright
We woke on moss
To the warm morning light

The money was pebbles
The jewels were snails
Thats how the gipsies
had cast their spells
Long gone were them
a new day for us
The magic stayed with us like fairy dust
And Bo sat their and played.

Perhaps2020-02-11T21:56:00+00:00

I often think about you
Its time that I confess
You’re on my mind a lot
Every day, I guess
Sometimes I almost miss you
When you’re nowhere near
In fact I truly long for the day
That you’ll be here
Occasionally I want you
But only now and then
Well perhaps a whole lot more
Then I’ve wanted other men
And there are times I need you
But only just a bit
Well perhaps a whole lot more
Than that I really should admit
But just because I think of you,
Every single day
And just because I miss you
Now that I’m away
And just because I want you and because
I need you too
Do you really think I love you
Well damn right I do!

Plastic Surgery2020-02-12T13:59:44+00:00

Plastic surgery the only security
In this awful town
They suck it up and tuck it up and sew it up
And send you homeward bound

( Chorus )

Plastic fantastic
Majestic elastic
Seamed steamed glamour queen
My face is falling down
My face is falling down on me
Plastic fantastic
Majestic elastic
Seamed steamed glamour queen
My face is falling down
My skin is melting can’t you see

Tears and fears take off the years
Now you’re happy and gay
But inside you’re dying, slowly dying
Insecure decay
New me I’m something to see
Riding high on surgery
You wouldn’t believe I’m a hundred and three
I’m gonna make it, wait and see

Pure2020-02-12T15:41:16+00:00

Untold pure goes free
For that is her destiny
Too Love to hold to treasure
She’s never far away
untold passion should never stay.

Untold evil goes free
For that is her destiny
The evil that run’s deep within
only human it live’s in.

Untold love goes free free
For that is her destiny
When love to town
It brings in the clowns
Through happiness it shines
The light is divine
But Oh does it fade
When Jealousy invades.

Untold madness goes free
For that is her destiny
When madness comes
It may be brife
To the sick and confused
It brings no refilef
They suffer in silence
Bringing grief

Pure Evil Loves Madness
Only in human it brings
Sadness is a condition you can’t escape
Spoken straight for the Devils lips
From the crib to the crypt
PURE EVIL LOVES MADNESS.

Raggle Taggle Gipsies O2020-02-12T16:33:29+00:00

They came to town
They danced like clowns
their girls were dressed
in long white gowns
with plenty of money
and smiles of honey

with the raggle taggle gipsies o

With song and dance
so sweet it entrances
Curses were mixed
with honey like glances
Shutters were downed
As they pranced through the town

With the raggle taggle gipsies o

The gipsy girl was fair and sweet
Had bell’s and charms upon her feet
She danced before him
Swift and light, Love befell him
that fateful night

with the raggle taggle gispies o

They played so dark
They played so sweet
Their music fills the air
with exotic heat
They sang of love and slow burning kisses
Of thing that come alive
when a heart beat misses

With the raggle taggle gipsies o

To dark ravines
She took him down
The stickleback cried
As the sun goes down
Mermaids will drown
As the ships go down

With the raggle taggle gipsies o

In a great big bow

Were we dance all night until daylight
Hoping it will never end

Swing me baby
Swing me really fast
Swing me to my head starts spinning
Cos I know this feeling will end

The Waiting Game2020-02-12T16:28:30+00:00

The broken dream the heart that cares
The love that should have been
its too late to turn back the clock
And fix that empty dream
The faces of friends I love
And alway will no doubt
The tears that I have, I hope will dry
For my friends will help me out
I’ll know one day we’ll be together again
So I’ll play the waiting game
You’ll love me Just Like
I love you
My life will be again

Trip2020-02-12T16:27:41+00:00

Take a little trip with me
See what we can see
A day out to the Zoo
or maybe visit winnie the pooh
have fun on the ferris wheel
Thats makes your Teddy bear squeal

Helter skelter really cool
Cooler than playing pool
It brings back memories
Off walking you home from school

Is like to take that trip again
When we were only ten

Candy floss love
with lemon sugar fairies
Jumping beans hearts
Just hits the mark
Fire crackers, lucky dips
and your warm mouth upon my lips

Strawberry Bon Bons in a pick and mixs
The funfair is full of tricks.

Writing a Letter2020-02-12T16:28:21+00:00

I started to say it in person
But decided it may have been better
To get out my pen and paper
and write an anonymous letter
I started to write down my feelings
And tell you just what I think
But I had to give up in the end
cause my pen was out of ink
I started to send you a letter
But it didn’t get very far
I didn’t know where to address it
Cause I don’t know where you are
I started to write you a letter
But its really is a shame
I couldn’t get further then Dear
Cause I couldnt remember your name
