Not my way

Vacuous aims

Grate

Against my grains

Vintage Girl

You keep talking at me
I say baby let me be
I’m not blinded by the stars up in the sky
I’m drowning in the grey of you and I

I’m just a vintage girl
In my vintage world
Yes I smile for you
But I cry for myself
In my vintage pearl of a world

You keep talking at me
I say baby let me be
There’s no point to what you say
The sun will go down on our dreams
Don’t insist it’s not too late
Not with that voice
I see your face

You keep talking at me
I say baby let me be
My mind is from a different time
The golden years of classic love
Goodbye baby you’ll find my mind
Resides in vaults
Of bygone love

I’m just a vintage girl
In my vintage world
Yes I smile for you
But I cry for myself
In my vintage pearl of a world

It ain’t helpin’

I wrote 12 love poems
’bout our 12 months o’love
But those 12 love poems
Didn’t bring y’back to me
I’m startin’ month 13
Baby I know
We’re history

I’m singin’ 7 songs a day
I’m singin’ 7 days a week
But those songs ain’t got no force
Ain’t gonna chase ma blues away
Now that you’re gone ma sweet love
Ma drownin’ blues are here t’stay

I wrote 26 letters
On perfumed sheets o’paper
But those 26 letters
Didn’t keep y’by ma side
I used all 26 letters
Oh ma baby
How I tried

Movie Star

Y’see me from afar
Lookin’ like a silent movie star
Ma eyes absorb the scene
While ma lips are sippin’
cool champagne

Y’see me from afar
Lookin’ like a silent movie star
I feel your gaze an’ strike a pose
Ma breath is
sultry slow

Y’see me from afar
Do y’like me as a movie star
D’y like the way ma shadow moves with ease
Over anythin’
an’ everythin’
it sees

About love

So we talked about love:
I said, forever
You said, whenever
I said, endeavour
You said, whatever
I said, not clever
You said, no never
I said, been nice knowing you
but hey baby we’re through.
You said, whatever
I thought, so true,
But baby I’m singin’ the blues.

Sleep talkin’

I hear y’talkin’ in y’sleep
Y’know y’always on repeat
I said y’talkin’ in y’sleep again

Y’sowed y’words now go an’ reap
An’ leave ma bed ‘cos I can’t sleep
Y’sowed y’words an’ now I weep again

I know you’ve left me far behind
An’ still y’hide behind closed eyes
I know I’m not inside y’mind no more

So let me sleep
Just let me sleep
Let me sleep

Life Love

So y’take me by the hand
An’ we run into the night

Where the trees grow fairy lights
an’ the birds are singin’ hymns

Then y’squeeze a berry ‘tween y’lips
T’release the first mulled wine

An’ make a coat out of a piece of sky
Ma stars are shinin’ bright

Y’say I’m lookin’ fine…

An’ I say my oh my oh my
Life is divine

Heatwave

Ma baby’s
drinkin’
rum

An’ his arms are sticky
An’ the shade ain’t helpin’

He sighs so deeply
An’ he looks straight at me

An’ his fingers
tap his
glass

With his eyes half open
He surveys the table
An’ the heatwave
makes him
hum

Then he winks
an’ sips
his rum

An’ his shadow stretches
An’ his face gets darker

Then he kisses me g’night
Puttin’ sweet words in ma mouth

An’ ma baby’s
comin’
home

Sleep Pattern

There’s a gaping hole
In my bedroom floor
Where hands lie in wait
To catch the fall
Of my conscious mind
As it rolls out of my sight

My consciousness
Changes colour and shape
When it’s moulded by
Those ethereal hands
To form a dream
Which is raised up to the light

There’s a gaping hole
In my bedroom floor
Where my dreams begin
Then roll back to me
To be fused with my third eye
Underneath my pulsing sky

Never

Life doesn’t understand
Sometimes
Y’don’t know where to go
But on y’go
An’ though you try an’ take it slow…
It’s never so

Sometimes life takes y’by the hand
Until y’feelin’ in control
An’ then it lets y’go
Y’try an’ keep the flow…
It’s never so

So here I am

An’ as I’m layin’ in m’bed
Repeatin’ all the words we said
I’m growin’ old y’know
But no, y’words aren’t old…
They’re made of soul

As ma frame holds onto ma life
Keepin’ ma pumpin’ heart inside
I wonder how y’keep so calm an’ in control
Me I’m on the road…
Tryin’ to let go
