Autumn Flow Lyrics

This Old Love

Yes we’re moving on
Looking for direction
We’ve covered much ground
Thinking back to innocence
I can no longer connect
I don’t have a heart left to throw around

And time moves on like a train
That disappears into the night sky
I still get a sad feeling inside
To see the red tail lights wave goodbye

But we’ll grow old together
We’ll grow old together
And this love will never
This old love will never die

Money slips into your hand
Then slips out like it was sand
And there are shoes that you can never seem to fill
I’ve chased so much and lost my way
Maybe a face for every day
That has so casually passed me by

Time moves on like a train
That disappears into the night sky
I still get a sad feeling inside
To see the red tail lights wave goodbye

But we’ll grow old together
We’ll grow old together
And this love will never
This old love will never die

Morning comes
Sometimes with a smile
Sometimes with a frown
So I never want to worry
If you’re gonna stay around

 
Daniel

Stepping into a doorway in my mind
This is where you live
I forgot the things that I could find
Haven’t been in here for years
I climb the stairs that hide beneath the vines
I walk through the overgrowth of time
Up to where we sat in clouds of smoke
Up to when we swam in pools of hope

And all the while
I’m looking for your half smile
Or something that will show me that you are still around
All the while
I’m looking for your half smile
Or something that will show me that you still know me
You still know me

Further on the pavement starts to crack
This is where we fell
Where smoke turns to haze I hesitate
And I choose to leave the way I came
Outside it’s overcast and vision’s hard to find
But the memories will be my guide
Coz even though i know our skins have changed
Colours that we shared
They still remain

And all the while…..

Stepping into a doorway in my mind
This is where you live…Daniel


    
 
Gypsy Girl

Can you tell me your love is here for good
I’m beginning to need you more than i should
My little gypsy girl
Don’t figure me out
Don’t say goodnight

I slide under the blanket
Your body is so rare
You smell like our first kiss
You still take me there
And your mercury eyes
Light up my darkest skies
But don’t figure me out
And don’t say goodnight

I awake to songs of doubt
But my dreams don’t lie
Don’t tell me lies
Cos I know you gonna tell me to just  relax and sing

So dance with me come dance my little gypsy girl
Don’t spin me round and cast me into your river
You can’t say until you try
How you could be so satisfied
So don’t figure me out
And don’t say goodnight


 
Superficial

Angle of the mirror so carefully aligned
Wardrobe full of tricks and illusions
Immaculate responses that never give an inch away
Cos when they’re checking you out
It’s not easy to keep the demons at bay

Superficial world we’re livin in

See the catalogue models
Trying to live out magazine dreams
Sometimes you want to be just like them
Things should not be as hard as they seem

Immaculate responses that never slip to show
That you’re feeling alone
Cos when they’re checking you out
There’s terror of facades breaking down

Superficial world we’re livin in

But I know that you can see  
The superficiality
I know you can see
The person that you never want to be

 

Autumn Flow


Feels like autumn’s back again so soon
I see my father turning grey under a silver moon
Don’t remember when
He was a young man anymore
That’s just too long ago
Suddenly I’d be asking you
If you’ll love me all the time
Even when the diamond loses its shine

The heaviness of loss
And the weightlessness of a baby boy
The despair and imminent joy
Temptation only shows you one side of its face
Gotta make sure you see the other before you join the rat race
Don’t know why i’m so happy to take care of you
But I’ve learnt to go with the flow
And that’s what the flow wants to do

So I don’t need to tell you my girl
That you are sunshine….you’re everything good in the world
I’m thinking about myself less and less
Only holler if it’s SOS
Taking bigger steps to get to you
Happy to sit here and watch you and i grow
And bathe in this sweet autumn flow 


 
Bedouin Song

Leaving the western shadows
Naked in the face of tommorrow
And the madness of black desert rain
That lets you rise up and flourish once again
Heading east
Bursting into a calm sea like a river released
The cool night will flow into the heat of the day
I will lose this shadow
I will find my own way

Oh Bedouin song
Is all I really own
How strong the temptation to fall

While black desert rain
Runs through my veins
Opening windows of shame
Wild moon above
Go on tell me there is love
I will find my inspiration
I will find my own way

 

Sitting with a Stranger

Sitting with a stranger
Just about to lose my mind
When you decide
The time’s not right
And leave me way behind
Sitting with a warrior
Taking all the punches thrown
A shallow grave is made for you
If you’re gonna take on the world on your own 

If this love is our home
Then why am i always trying to break down the walls
And as long as there are places in your mind
I’m not allowed to go….

I’ll be sitting with a stranger
Trying to keep it together
Swimming around you
Holding my breath
Waiting for a change in weather
Put up a fight
I can’t scream into the dark

I’ll be sitting with a stranger
My whole life through
When I could be with you

Love
In a desert
Will always be wondering what it’s missing out on
And peace
In infested waters
Can never make itself at home
So c’mon 

The Art of Cruelty

Well I don’t want to be somebody’s keeping
No I don’t even want to hesitate
Yeah it’s warm in your sun
But comfort is as cruel as a gun
And I can’t reveal what’s in my safe
Cos that would be the end of me
Made up my mind gonna push on alone
But my love for you has a will of it’s own

How does the pressure ever ease
Will the battles ever cease
This must be hard to understand
For someone so at peace

Caught between the silence and the storm
Every day a new religion born
My life is a halfway house
And I’m in doubt
Of ever getting out 

How does…..

Well I don’t want to be somebody’s keeping
But my love for you has a will of it’s own

 
Blessed

Flowers on the roadside
You’ve so much you hide
Straying from a white line
Could never be too far away
So my loneliness is hanging on
You sit beside me
Geisha graceful and some
Looking out the window
It’s a television show
Made for you and i

You could never be replaced
So no matter how hard it gets
Let’s laugh in the face of death
While we are still blessed

Will we survive
These machines on overdrive
You must be bold
To overcome the cold
That comes with being left alive

You could never be replaced
So no matter how hard it gets
Let’s laugh in the face of death
While we are still blessed

Flowers on the roadside
My loneliness is real
Straying from a white line
Can never be too far away
So hang on my love hang on
We are blessed
 


Stuck in a war

You say I’m the one that used to get you so high
Now sugar of angels is always worth another try
You claim that you’re mellow but you’re stuck in a war
Take one good look
Tell me why you sore
You still got my money but you’re sittin on dessert
Like to keep it coming when you know it’s gonna hurt
Flat tyre desire boiling on the pressure cooker
You say bring it on c’mon
Just a little bit harder

And you know it
You know it
That times are a changing
And everybody’s growing
But you’re not moving on

Parading your freedom
Through the bars you hide behind
But I see a child
Look through the windows of your mind
I’ve seen you naked
So free and wild
I know most of what you hide

And you know it
You know it
That times are a changing
And everybody’s growing
But you’re not moving on

 
Building Ships

We could almost see the distant shore
When my little sweetheart jumped overboard
I threw a line blind into the sea
But she was free
To drift on
The sea is calm
The night after the storm
But I know the empty rain awaits at every turn
I fear I had a love
And now it’s gone
To find new shelter

Now I’m building ships
To carry me home
Back to where I sailed from
Back to the places I hurt

The rhythm of the rocking is unknown
It’s takes a while to get used to the motion
I’m moving slowly but I’m full of anger
That there’s no one to blame
It’s a cruel game

Now I’m building ships
To carry me home
Back to where I sailed from
Back to the places I hurt

I fear I had a love
And now it’s gone
To find new shelter
 

Grey Ocean

There’s a grey ocean
Calling me in
I’m getting taken under
Don’t know these emotions
Don’t think I ever have
So helplessly caught in your tide
Grey
Why can’t I be the simple blue sky
Don’t know where you’ll take me
Whether you’ll do me harm
Just don’t leave me stranded in your arms

When I’m trying
To keep my head above your charm
Trying to stay calm
But I don’t know if I’ll make it
Or if I ever will
Just don’t leave me stranded here
Don’t leave me stranded in your arms
