The Talking Leaves

Sequoia's winters were sixteen silent tongue spirit clean
He walked at his father's side
Across the smoking battle ground where red and white men lay all around
So many here had died
The wind had scattered around snow white leaves upon the ground
Not leaves like leaves from trees
Sequoia said what can this be what's the strange thing here I see
From where come leaves like these
Sequoia turned to his father's eyes and he said father you're wise
From where come such snow white leaves
With such strange marks upon these squares
Not even the wise owl could put them there
So strange these snow white leaves
His father shielding his concern resenting the knowledge Sequoia yearned
Crumbled the snow white leaves
He said when I explain then it's done these are talking leaves my son
The white men's talking leaves
The white man takes a berry of black and red
And an eagle's feather from the eagle's bed
And he makes bird track marks
And the marks on the leaves they say carry messages to his brother far away
And his brother knows what's in his heart
They see these marks and they understand the truth in the heart of the far off man
The enemies can't hear them
Said Sequoia's father son they weave bad medicine on these talking leaves
Leave such things to them
Then Sequoia walking lightly followed his father quietly but so amazed was he
If the white man talks on leaves why not the Cherokee
Vanished from his father's face Sequoia went from place to place
But he could not forget
Year after year he worked on and on till finally he cut into stone
The Cherokee alphabet
Sequoia's hair by now was white his eyes began to lose their light
But he taught all who would believe
That the Indian's thoughts could be written down
Just as the white men's there on the ground and he left us these talking leaves

In the Morning I'll Be Better

[Verse 1]
I’ll wipe your cares away
That I might spare you pain
Let everybody say that I’m gone for ya
Say you’re my baby
We’re sublimating
 
[Chorus]
I’ll write a hymn again
(I’ll write a hymn again)
I’ll be your woman (woman)
Keep on believing in
Our own healing
Oh, baby
 
[Verse 2]
I’ll wrap myself around you
Where we can’t be found
I’ll hide you from the world
’Til we’re forgotten
Say you’re my baby
We’re sublimating
 
[Chorus]
I’ll write a hymn again
(I’ll write a hymn again)
I’ll be your woman (woman)
Keep on believing in
Our own healing
 
[Refrain - Outro]
In the morning, I’ll be
Oh, better, better, yeah
In the morning, I’ll be
Oh, better, better, yeah
Though our bodies have betrayed us
In a million different ways
In the morning, I’ll be
Oh, better, better, yeah
 

Backstage

A thousand hands applaud tonight
I sing my songs my star shines bright
I stop and smile I take my bow
I leave the stage and then somehow
 
Backstage I'm lonely
Backstage I cry
You've gone away
And each night I seem to die a little
 
Out on that stage I play the star
I'm famous now I've come so far
A famous fool I let love go
I didn't know I'd miss you so
 
Backstage I'm lonely
Backstage I cry
Hating myself
Since I let you say goodbye
 
Every night a different room
Every night a different club
And yet I'm lonely all the time
When I sign my autograph
When I hold an interview
Can't get you out of my mind
 
Come back my love come back to me
I need you now so desperately
What good is fame it's just a game
I'd give it all to be the same
 
Backstage I wait now
Hoping I'll see
Your smiling face waiting there
Backstage for me
Your smiling face waiting
Backstage for me
Backstage
Backstage
 

Du The Dudek (FC Liverpool))

Come on and do the Dudek
Do the Jerzy Dudek
Shake it, shake it, move it
Jump up and wave your gloves!
 
We're the one and only
Euro Campione
Who get to keep the trophy
The rest aint good enough!
 
One night in Turkey
Some lads from the Mersey
They never gave up the fight
 
We went bananas
Sons and their fathers
As they set the city alight
 
Oh-oh-eeay-oh...eeay-oh
Carragher's brilliant advice
Oh-oh-eeay-oh...eay-oh
Eeeay-oh-oh-oh
 
Come on and do the Dudek
Do the Jerzy Dudek
Shake it, shake it, move it
Jump up and wave yourgloves!
 
We're the one and only
Euro Campione
Who get to keep the trophy
The rest aint good enough!
 
At 3-nil we were stuffed
We thought it was all over
But come the second half
We played them off the park!
 
Stevie...Steve Gerrard
Ee-zey...He's in command
 
Oh-oh-eeay-oh...eay-oh
Grobbelaar's come back to life
Oh-oh-eeay-oh...eay-oh
Eeeay-oh-oh-oh
 
Come on and do the Dudek
Do the Jerzy Dudek
Shake it, shake it, move it
Jump up and wave your gloves!
 
We're the one and only
Euro Campione
Who get to keep the trophy
The rest aint good enough!
 
When we scored three in six
The Mersey boyz were laughing
Then Jerzey's double save
And we're back from the grave!
 
Eu-ro...Cam-pio-ne!!
Heroes...of the Mersey
 
Come on and do the Dudek
Do the Jerzy Dudek
Shake it, shake it, move it
Jump up and wave your gloves!
 
We're the one and only
Euro Campione
Who get to keep the trophy
The rest aint good enough!
 

Pain

Go to bed now I can tell
Pain is on the way out now
Look away and domino falls away
 
I know it's hard looking in
Knowing that tomorrow you'll be back again
Pin your head and let me in
I'm waiting
So long
 
I was staring into the light
When I saw you in the distance, I knew that you'd be mine
Am I moving back in time
Just standing still
 
I met a man with a broken back
He had a fear in his eyes that I could understand
I can even shake the hand
When I break it in
 
I've been pulling on a wire, but it just won't break
I've been turning up the dial, but I hear no sound
I resist what I cannot change
But I wanna find what can't be found
 
I'm aware you're tired and lost
Like a demon in the doorway, waiting to be born
But I'm here all alone, just begging
 
Pull me close and let me hold you in
Give me the deeper understanding of who I am
Yeah, I'm moving back again
I'm waiting here
 
I'm just pulling on a wire, but it just won't break
I've been turning up the dial, but I hear no sound
I resist what I cannot change, own it in your own way
Yeah, I wanna find what can't be found
