CRY

Lyrics Dot Allison


You are frozen, you are fire
An endless ocean of dangerous desire
And we could melt an avalanche inside
And we could glow tonight like a fallen star

 

Just cry, I know the reason why
Yeah you cry this is the last goodbye

 

Like the dark night that draws you near
Like the sunlight dries my tear
And I am fallen, fallen like the rain
That floods a desert in your heart again

 

Just cry, I know the reason why
Yeah you cry this is the last goodbye
Just cry, I know the reason why
Yeah you cry this is the last goodbye

 

You are frozen, you are fire
An endless ocean of dangerous desire
And we could melt an avalanche inside

And we could glow tonight like a fallen star

 

PAVED WITH A LITTLE PAIN

Lyrics Dot Allison


If I was a preacher, I would kneel and say a prayer
If I was a gambler I would save myself for you
If I was a hunter I would stay at home with you
If I was a soldier, I would give you all my guns..

 

I've gotta go because I love you..
The road we took was just in vain
But can't you feel it getting colder
Our love came with a little pain..

 

If I ever hunger, i'd write you poems for my food
But if I was a teacher d'you know I'd say we wrote the book

 

I've gotta go because I love you..
The road we took was just in vain..
Where every path I take leads to you
And it comes paved with a little pain
My love I'd take that same road again

Although it's paved with a little pain...

 

BUZZING ROUND THE HONEY POTS

Lyrics Dot Allison


Little birdy been telling me stories
Whispering and whistling through the trees
Seems when you ain't been with me you been pretty busy
Buzzing round the honey pots like a busy little worker bee

 

No it's true I could never leave you
Your love it slayed me brought me to my knees
But you been pollenating other flowers,
Pretty little orchids right beneath my feet

 

bah bah bah...

 

I heard your ride wedding bells from the bottom of the well
I had no funeral I attended
For no my murderous lover, you covered it up oh so well.

 

bah bah bah...

 

One witching hour I rise up from my oh so broken sleep
No I can't settle for that one amend
My love that promise you made was meant to keep

 

I'll be yours for eternity. I think those were the words you said to me
So I've come now for your soul you see
And hell is the only land where you may live without me

 

Follow me down
Follow me down now
Trodden me down

But now come follow me drown

 

I WANNA BREAK YOUR HEART

Lyrics Dot Allison & Peter Doherty


The pain I brought to you it was so easy to do
And traceless like sand I slid through your hands
I know you have suffered cried tears in my name
Now you'll never recover from my delight in your shame

 

I wanna be your man
I wanna break your heart
I wanna hold your hand
I wanna break your heart
I wanna be adored
I wanna break your heart
I wanna be your dog
I wanna break your heart

 

And all that I sold you
Some sin-sealed dealt lies
You always believed me
You bought it each time
Sweet pretence of love
Is my bleak empty gain
I pawned it for tuppence again and again and again ....

 

I wanna be your man
I wanna break your heart
I wanna hold your hand
I wanna break your heart
I wanna be adored
I wanna break your heart
I wanna be your dog
I wanna break your heart

 

I can't stand to be near you
That's one thing you may trust
And I've destroyed those dear to you
With my treacherous lust

 

I wanna be your man
I wanna break your heart
I wanna hold your hand
I wanna break your heart
I wanna be adored
I wanna break your heart
I wanna be your dog
I wanna break your heart

 

ROOM 7 1/2

Lyrics Dot Allison


Pass me the whisky I need to still me
Pass me the glass I need to steal me away
No no don't do anything to distill me
Tell me that you love me
I'll be forgetting I'm just a lowly whore
Feed my foolish dream I could be a wife
That I could tempt you away from your other life

 

Oh lord how long must I bide
I need someone to steal me away
Somehting to still me today
Oh lord, how long til I die
Deliver me numb to my pain
For peace never stumbled this way...

 

Tell me how it feels to have a back strong like a wall
Not a burning out car
You got splendor and taste at the tips of your fingers
But where I'm sleeping rough is where I'm seeking true love

 

Oh lord how long must I bide
Gimme someone to steal me away
Someone to topple my pain
Oh lord won't I beĀ  bride
Someone to topple my shame
He could come eclipse my name

 

I write on the back of a cigarette pack
That we're all aged like stars
I'm made up of some else's joy and someone's scars
That velvet-fingered dope that I smoke
Dupes me for a second that I am free
like some great unbothered oak tree..

 

Oh lord how long 'ti I'm mine
I need someone to steal me away
Deliver me numb to this pain
Oh lord how long til i die
Someone to steal me away
Someone to steal me away

Peace may just tumble this way.....

 

FALL TO ME

Lyrics Dot Allison


Words fall from my lips like letters
Doves once caged now fly unfettered
Thought our hearts would remain unscathed
We're still here but something's changed

 

Fall To Me
Fall To Me again

 

Like a ring thrown to the ocean
Merge our hearts upon the canvas
Lost at sea yet bound to me
Time will still the wave on the surface

 

Come to me
Come to me again

 

Like falling petals in Autumn colors
Whispers born from fading embers
Though I cannot feel the breeze
Snow of years will guide my fears

 

Fall to me
Fall to me again
Fall to me conscious
Fall to me still
Fall to me broken
Fall to me

 

Fall to me conscious
Fall to me still
Fall to me broken

Fall to me

 

LOVE'S GOT ME CRAZY

Lyrics Dot Allison & Paul Weller


Love's got me crazy
Haunted and aching
You can find it a shock
To know that you've arrived
Such a precious event
You know how hard to acquire it..

 

Black clouds I can't see them
Darkness has no home tonight
All that is said that is not a given
We're going to try, we're going to try

 

Love's got me crazy
Haunted and aching

 

Steady as rocks
Two halves of one we cling
Ready or not
Who knows what life will bring..

 

Love's got you crazy
True love can take it..

 

MONTAGUE TERRACE (IN BLUE)

Words and Music - Scott Walker


The little clock's stopped ticking now
We're swallowed in the stomached rue
The only sound to tear the night
Comes from the man upstairs


His bloated belching figure stomps
He may crash through the ceiling soon
The window sees trees cry from cold
And claw the moon


But we know don't we
And we'll dream won't we
Of Montague Terrace in blue


The girl across the hall makes love
Her thoughts lay cold like shattered stone
Her thighs are full of tales to tell
Of all the nights she's known


Your eyes ignite like cold blue fire
The scent of secrets everywhere
A fist filled with illusions
Clutches all our cares


But we know don't we
And we'll dream won't we
Of Montague Terrace in blue oh in blue

 

JONNY VILLAIN

Lyrics Dot Allison


Thy found Jonny Villain with his neck broke it two
Lying' on the street where he got somebody's boot
All because he lied about how he divi'd up the loot

 

Little Jonny said he never had a chance
That he was robbed purely by circumstance
It was by his birth his sweet mama died
Poor little Jonny Villain...

 

No Jonny said he wasn't a bad man
That he'd been unlucky and that just that.
But his ladies they know just what he's at
Wrong-headed, dangerous, heartless, a bad cat..

 

His father was estranged his disappearance feigned
Jonny had to fend for his own longevity
So he robbed those old women just to pay his way
Poor little Jonny Villain...

 

His young lady went over his balcony..
Yeah I heard that Villain was in custody
But he got let off cos they just couldn't pin the blame
Luck of the devil Villain

 

No Jonny said he wasn't a bad man
That he'd been unfortunate and that just that.
But his ladies they know just what he's at
Wrong-headed, dangerous, heartless, a bad cat..

 

That little girl he took a needle to
Little tinker-bell he nearly killed her too
Virgin beauty queen not a day past seventeen
For heaven's sake Jonny Villain.

 

No Jonny he never worked for a nickel or a dime
Run on his own will his rank device
But now he's fallen foul of men that eat young men alive
Poor poor poor villain

 

Jonny he's still knocking at Heaven's gates
Pleading he's more than just a sum of his own traits
Begging to re-live his life a different way
Not to be a heartless, dangerous bad cat.

 

They found Villain with his neck broke in two
Lying on the street 'cos he got somebody's boot
Silly little Jonny died for a pocketful of loot
Poor little Jonny Villain, poor little Jonny Villain
Poor Villain..

 

WHILE SHE SLEEPS

Lyrics Dot Allison


The twilight of our love
Tiptoes into our room
It twists and weaves around us
Like vines around the moon

 

She is lying flesh to flesh
He reaches for her through the dark
And just like sleep's willing prisoner
Swindled by a dream

 

And these words he'll always keep
Secret thoughts all while she sleeps..

 

You could wash away these tears
That christen all the years
But I've got a bullet hole the shape of you
Running through my heart

 

And these words he'll always keep
Secret thoughts all while she sleeps..

 

PORTRAIT OF THE SUN

Lyrics Dot Allison


I was in doubt then I fell in love
But we don't say fall in England
We say Autumnal
One thing is true
We all say love when it's not love we mean at all
This time I'm gone I'm out of here so I can live a while..

 

Though it's hard to say
It makes sense today
When in every way
We are close yet so estranged...

 

LIke a portrait of the sun
Gazing down upon our flower
If it's left to us
The rain becomes the only hour..

 

The answer is in a song
That's where this love belongs
It's always been this way..
Forever and a day...
Forever and a day...

 

We love and fall
This has fallen without a home
A beggar once a king
Somehow strong as bone

 

The odd folly we'll forgive
But these lies they sneak and trawl
Eat away at the core of it all
Left to us we'll surely fall

 

I know it's hard to say
But it makes sense today
I love you anyway
Though we are close yet so estranged...

 

Like a portrait of the sun
Gazing down upon our flower
If it's left to us
The rain becomes the only hour..

 

The answer's in this song
That's where our love belongs
It's always been this way
Forever and a day
Forever and a day
Forever and a day...
