A Thousand Kisses Deep

The ponies run, the girls are young,
The odds are there to beat.
You win a while, and then it's done ¨c
Your little winning streak.
And summoned now to deal
With your invincible defeat,
You live your life as if it's real,
A thousand kisses deep.

I'm turning tricks, i'm getting fixed,
I'm back on boogie street.
You lose your grip, and then you slip
Into the masterpiece.
And maybe i had miles to drive,
And promises to keep:
You ditch it all to stay alive,
A thousand kisses deep.

And sometimes when the night is slow,
The wretched and the meek,
We gather up our hearts and go,
A thousand kisses deep.

Confined to sex, we pressed against
The limits of the sea:
I saw there were no oceans left
For scavengers like me.
I made it to the forward deck.
I blessed our remnant fleet ¨c
And then consented to be wrecked,
A thousand kisses deep.

I'm turning tricks, i'm getting fixed,
I'm back on boogie street.
I guess they won't exchange the gifts
That you were meant to keep.
And quiet is the thought of you,
The file on you complete,
Except what we forgot to do,
A thousand kisses deep.

And sometimes when the night is slow,
The wretched and the meek,
We gather up our hearts and go,
A thousand kisses deep.

The ponies run, the girls are young,
The odds are there to beat . . .

In My Secret Life

I saw you this morning
You were moving so fast
Can't seem to loosen my grip
On the past
And I miss you so much
There's no one in sight
And we're still making love
In my secret life.

I smile when I'm angry
I cheat and I lie
I'll do what I have to do
To get back
But I know what is wrong
And I know what is right
And I die for the truth
In my secret life.

Hold on, hold on my brother
My sister hold on tight
I finally got my orders
I'll be marching through the morning
Marching through the night
Moving 'cross the borders
Of my secret life.

Look through the papers
Makes you want to cry
Nobody cares if the people
Live or die
And the dealer wants you thinking
That's it's either black or white
Thank God it's not that simple
In my secret life.

I bite my lip
I buy what I'm told
From the latest hit
To the wisdom of old
But I'm always alone
And my heart is like ice
And it's crowded and cold
In my secret life.

That Don't Make It Junk

I fought against the bottle,
But i had to do it drunk ¨c
Took my diamond to the pawnshop ¨c
But that don't make it junk.

I know that i'm forgiven,
But i don't know how i know
I don't trust my inner feelings ¨c
Inner feelings come and go.

How come you called me here tonight?
How come you bother
With my heart at all?
You raise me up in grace,
Then you put me in a place,
Where i must fall.

Too late to fix another drink ¨c
The lights are going out ¨c
I'll listen to the darkness sing ¨c
I know what that's about.

I tried to love you my way,
But i couldn't make it hold.
So i closed the book of longing
And i do what i am told.

How come you called me here tonight?
How come you bother with my heart at all?
You raise me up in grace,
Then you put me in a place,
Where i must fall.

I fought against the bottle,
But i had to do it drunk ¨c
Took my diamond to the pawnshop ¨c
But that don't make it junk.

Here It Is

Here is your crown
And your seal and rings;
And here is your love
For all things.

Here is your cart,
And your cardboard and piss;
And here is your love
For all of this.

May everyone live,
And may everyone die.
Hello, my love,
And my love, goodbye.

Here is your wine,
And your drunken fall;
And here is your love.
Your love for it all.

Here is your sickness.
Your bed and your pan;
And here is your love
For the woman, the man.

May everyone live,
And may everyone die.
Hello, my love,
And, my love, goodbye.

And here is the night,
The night has begun;
And here is your death
In the heart of your son.

And here is the dawn,
(until death do us part);
And here is your death,
In your daughter's heart.

May everyone live,
And may everyone die.
Hello, my love,
And, my love, goodbye.

And here you are hurried,
And here you are gone;
And here is the love,
That it's all built upon.

Here is your cross,
Your nails and your hill;
And here is your love,
That lists where it will

May everyone live,
And may everyone die.
Hello, my love,
And my love, goodbye.

Love Itself

The light came through the window,
Straight from the sun above,
And so inside my little room
There plunged the rays of love.

In streams of light i clearly saw
The dust you seldom see,
Out of which the nameless makes
A name for one like me.

I'll try to say a little more:
Love went on and on
Until it reached an open door ¨c
Then love itself
Love itself was gone.

All busy in the sunlight
The flecks did float and dance,
And i was tumbled up with them
In formless circumstance.

I'll try to say a little more:
Love went on and on
Until it reached an open door ¨c
Then love itself
Love itself was gone.

Then i came back from where i'd been.
My room, it looked the same ¨c
But there was nothing left between
The nameless and the name.

By the Rivers Dark

By the rivers dark
I wandered on.
I lived my life
In Babylon.

And i did forget
My holy song:
And i had no strength
In Babylon.

By the rivers dark
Where i could not see
Who was waiting there
Who was hunting me.

And he cut my lip
And he cut my heart.
So i could not drink
From the river dark.

And he covered me,
And i saw within,
My lawless heart
And my wedding ring,

I did not know
And i could not see
Who was waiting there,
Who was hunting me.

By the rivers dark
I panicked on.
I belonged at last
To Babylon.

Then he struck my heart
With a deadly force,
And he said, ¡®️this heart:
It is not yours.'

And he gave the wind
My wedding ring;
And he circled us
With everything.

By the rivers dark,
In a wounded dawn,
I live my life
In Babylon.

Though i take my song
From a withered limb,
Both song and tree,
They sing for him.

Be the truth unsaid
And the blessing gone,
If i forget
My Babylon.

I did not know
And i could not see
Who was waiting there,
Who was hunting me.

By the rivers dark,
Where it all goes on;
By the rivers dark
In Babylon.
