I made you walk
I made you talk
I moved to your side slowly
turquise eyes were no surprise
but I'm so sorry
I never knew what you've been through
but if I knew, I'd carry you
but is that what you would want me to do?
You are of my '80s dreams
but the '80s are over
away from you away from you
You are of my '90s dreams,
but it's not the '90s don't I know...

When day falls down
for the night
You choose which
way we run
I can't choose more than one.
You got no sleep but I found my belief,
I found my belief.
The Westway's dark.
Please stay, don't fade away

love made in hollywood might badly fall apart
dance around the fairy lamps down in china town
begging god for mercy but she's busy just right now...

Beech tree save breeze for me
Hideaway for highwaymen
high above broken ground
of maiden's hearts
Soaked in rain was my way
now blue skies do the same
- are all the same
Walk away the tunnel way
to Highgate Hill and down again
find your mates
have your share
Hidaway for you and me
I wish we were born to be

With smiles on our faces
we commit the crimes
on a daily basis-
crimes against humanity
for the sake of prosperity
we throw the devil's dice
We all signed up for it
and now we wonder why
all that we loved
tends to fall apart
Withdraw from the madness
do not oil the war
don't shoot at the buggies
don't hire newborns!
Thinking we are drops of ...

Stay with me boy we gonna
like flies do run
burning after touching the light bulb
stay with me, 'cause it's an empty and sad little century
i might have tears in my eyes
but i don't wanna see
just don't want to see
Right on time
why would we
Walk with me now we never
had any time

Has it really been one year?
Is this what it takes to really breathe?
Well no one told me it would be that harsh..
Maybe I should have asked..

I was looking at that window thinking
there's someone I love in there -
and she was
I looked at your window later
waving a thousand times -
and yet couldn't stop
I'm looking at that dim lit window
as cold rain struggles to freeze white -
And in there are my mad life's beauties,
as I lean against the first of January's nights

You're so violently pretty
with that flower on your hat
You're so arrogant and sweet
it stops me from catching breath
How could universe had chosen me
to sew it's starlit magic net?
When I hold you - we fly
back home to Planet Earth

Save me from the lido
it makes me horny
I'm drowning in pure beauty
take me away
from the unnecessary love
I think I've had enough
Save me from your claws
I'm hurt already
there's only so much flesh you can have
blood stains on the beaks
of sweetest seagulls
life is a death trap?
She said no
I won't let go
I won't let g...

Pass me the toys I'll play with you
lets load the riffle let the bullet go loose!
Who's gonna shoot the balloons in the tree?
Who's gonna pull the knives out of me?
Your little sister now owns your touch
cook for the robots 'cause they fought for us
we'll never let the kite go fly free
we never ever will let you leave
So you've really got it going

Seasons turn but I don't care
people come and go
bright blue skies and golden leaves
won't heal broken souls
People and leaves fall and rise
up against the time
missing those we loved so much
we all long to die

You left a lovely tattoo mark on our grey cloud world
your lovely bones will rattle on down the dirty streets
of Camden Suzi
where the bees go sleep at night only your hair knows
your hair Suzi
we can drink up in the skies by the railtrack bridge
your bridge Suzi
Break the broken heart
paint the damned soul dark
shut the shut down mind

Into the riot of the spring
sirens are calling my soul
what the hell is wrong with me?
I feel like I'm a thousand years old
But I've just been a boy
who started a million fires
went down on his knees and then prayed
to catch another glimpse of your face
That day you were wearing a skirt
the day you made my knees shake
all that distant time...

Black crows and a white stone
symbols of eternity
and our small life flows
somewhere noone knows
with or without dignity

When you wake up right in the middle of a cold cold night
and there's no such a thing as a warm blue light
with hardly anyone around
yet you're still loved
it really seems
your life is made of dreams
we breathe, neither awake nor asleep
our world falling apart, yet there's football on TV
with all there is to come - just how shall an...

Oh they never applauded me this much!
Thousands of throats screaming,
thousands of hands waving at me only!
only - it's thousands of leaves on a massive ash tree

So, so unreal-
cold and bright November day
the loved ones all around my head
and yet some miles away
Wrinkles on our faces
painted by the love of sun
and a peaceful dream that makes your beauty
an unbearable one
Friday 12th November 2010 7:13 pm
And so as nothing leads to nothing
and your weary eyes
leaves turn golden then they fall
grasping for the past
An old tramp in the corner
monument of life
you used to own the whole world too
benches for thrones, friends to trust
All is gone yet you still live
bursting with sweet love
Love of golden fallen leaves
- that is what you've...

..if it ain't one of my fights..
'You're kidding, you're not my shadow!'
stories and lullabies
please let's rush it, it's good that we met
This feeling you broke my spine
said sorry and dropped my shadow
we keep nothing, all has been said
Feel free to go nowhere, nowhere so soon
we got a brotherhood but we said we had a tune

And where would you be without my deep blue equality?
what was your home
when you first screamed:
'I want more!'?
But you have to go back
to my warm and loving matter
and there you'll find your friends,
and I will welcome you
As I always chose to do.
My kids are a great family
creatures above and below me
my kids, my true loving...

In the chains of my simplicity
in the chains of your infinity
waiting for you to show me
how it was
and how it all began
and will end
your shapes and rhythm are in me
I'm your weakest child
thrown out, on the shore
left with the eyes wide open
and the brain shut
gathered by knives
of your white stone teeth
cutting slowly my hope
and you're still giving me a...

Snowed down in the year of changes
our hearts melted to one
blood doesn't freeze even in February
struggling artists and lovers don't die

Rats can't fly
and neither can I
shame on me
on my simple poetry
Your beauty your beauty
the whole world in one girl
there's no losing freedom
for the one who cares
Saturday 11th September 2010 12:19 am
Northern wind northern wind
I'm still standing straight
I'm still hoping for new days
all that hurt me to erase
I'm still laughing loud inside
though my face is scarred

The ancient Egyptian stares at me
holding his sheet but he's got no pen.
Write, write, write
he says with his silence

-where the windows on the train cry
just as i
did they witness the same?
abandoned cranes and merciless rain?
my eyes won't dry that easy
you need to hold me
i'm nothing but a baby
grey, grey, grey
it's not even cold
and i like the rain
no weeping this time
it's darker then my soul
almost alone on planet london
