LADY D´ARBANVILLE

My Lady d'Arbanville
Why do you sleep so still?
I'll wake you tomorrow
And you will be my fill
Yes you will be my fill
 
My Lady d'Arbanville
Why does it grieve me so?
But your heart seems so silent
Why do you breathe so low?
Why do you breathe so low?
 
My Lady d'Arbanville
Why do you sleep so still?
I'll wake you tomorrow
And you will be my fill
Yes you will be my fill
 
My Lady d'Arbanville
You look so cold tonight
Your lips feel like winter
your skin has turned to white
Your skin has turned to white
 
My Lady d'Arbanville
Why do you sleep so still?
I'll wake you tomorrow
And you will be my fill
Yes you will be my fill
 
My Lady d'Arbanville
Why do you greet me so?
But your heart seems so silent
Why do you breathe so low?
Why do you breathe so low?
 
I loved you my lady
Though in your grave you lie
I'll always be with you
This rose will never die
This rose will never die
 
I loved you my lady
Though in your grave you lie
I'll always be with you
This rose will never die
This rose will never die

MAYBE YOURE RIGHT

Now maybe you're right
And maybe you're wrong
But I ain't gonna argue with you no more
I've done it for too long
 
It was getting so good
Why then, where did it go?
I can't think about it no more
Tell me if you know
 
You were loving me
I was loving you
But now there aint nothing but regretting
Nothing, nothing but regretting
Everything we do
 
I put up with your lies
Like you put up with mine
But God knows
We should have stopped somewhere
We could have taken the time
 
Time has turned
Yes some call it the end
So tell me, tell me
Did you really love me
Like a friend?
 
You know you don't have to pretend
It's all over now
It'll never happen again
No-no-no,
It'll never happen again
It won't happen again
Never-never-never
It'll never happen again
No-no-no-no-no-no
 
So maybe you're right
And maybe you're wrong
But I ain't gonna argue with you no more
I've done it for too long
 
It was getting so good
Why then, where did it go?
I can't think about it no more
Tell me if you know
 
You were loving me
I was loving you
But now there ain't nothing but regretting
Nothing, nothing but regretting
Everything we do

I THINK I SEE THE LIGHT

I used to trust nobody
Trusting even less their words
Until I found somebody
There was no one I preferred
My heart was made of stone
My eyes saw only misty grey
Until you came into my life girl
I saw everyone that way
Until I found the one
I needed at my side
I think I would have been
A sad man all my life
 
I think I see the light
Coming to me
Coming through me
Giving me a second sight
So shine, shine, shine, shine
Shine, shine, shine, shine, shine
 
I used to walk alone
Every step seemed the same
This world was not my home
So there was nothing much to gain
Look up and see the clouds
Look down and see the cold floor
Until you came into my life girl
I saw nothing, nothing more
Until I found the one
I needed at my side
I think I would have been
A sad man all my life
 
I think I see the light
Coming to me
Coming through me
Giving me a second sight
So shine, shine, shine, shine
Shine, shine, shine, shine, shine
 
I think I see the light
Coming to me
Coming through me
Giving me a second sight
So shine, shine, shine ect.

TROUBLE

Trouble oh trouble set me free
I have seen your face
And it's too much, too much for me
Trouble oh trouble can't you see
You're eating my heart away
And there's nothing much left of me
 
I've drunk your wine
You have made your world mine
So won't you be fair
So won't you be fair
I don't want no more of you
So won't you be kind to me
Just let me go where
I'll have to go there
 
Trouble oh trouble move away
I have seen your face
and it's too much for me today
Trouble oh trouble can't you see
You have made me a wreck
Now won't you leave me in my misery
 
I've seen your eyes
and I can see death's disguise
Hangin' on me
Hangin' on me
I'm beat, I'm torn
Shattered and tossed and worn
Too shocking to see
Too shocking to see
 
Trouble oh trouble move from me
I have paid my debt now
Won't you leave me in my misery
Trouble oh trouble please be kind
I don't want no fight
And I haven't got a lot of time

I WISH I WISH

Oeh yeah
I wish I knew, I wish I knew
What makes me me, what makes you you
It's just another point of view, oeh
A state of mind I'm going through, yeah
So what I see is never true, noh
 
I wish I could tell, I wish I could tell
What makes a heaven what makes a hell
And do I get to ring my bell, oeh
Or land up in some dusty cell, noh
While others reach the big hotel, yeah
 
I wish I had, I wish I had
The secret of good, and the secret of bad
Why does this question drive me mad? ah
'Cause I was taught when but a lad, yeah
That bad was good and good was bad, noh
 
I wish I knew the mystery of
That thing called hate, and that thing called love
What makes the in between so rough? ah
Why is it always push and shove? ah
I guess I just don't know enough, yeah
 
Yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah ect
I wish I knew, I wish I knew
I wish I knew, somebody tell me

KATMANDU

I sit beside the dark beneath the mire
Cold grey dusty day the morning lake
Drinks up the sky
 
Katmandu I'll soon be seeing you
And your strange bewildering time
Will hold me down
 
Chop me some broken wood we'll start a fire
White warm light the dawn and help me see
Old satan's tree
 
Katmandu I'll soon be touching you
And your strange bewildering time
Will hold me down
 
Pass me my hat and coat lock up the cabin
Slow night treat me right until I go
Be nice to know
 
Katmandu I'll soon be seeing you
And your strange bewildering time
Will keep me home

TIME

Time rise
Time fall
Time leaves you nothing
Nothing at all
 
Words just
Words don't know
Words take you nowhere
Nowhere to go
To go
 
Back
I'm going back
Ooh...
Going back

FILL MY EYES

And in the morning when you fill my eyes
I knew that day I couldn't do
Ah... no wrong , I couldn't do
 
And so my mind begins to memorise
'Cos time will never seem the same
Ah... no more , never again
 
I'm just a coaster but my wheels won't go
My legs are weak my heels are low
I'm just a coaster but my wheels won't roll
Can't make no headway on this road
 
There's an empty space inside me now
A wasteland deep beneath the snow
So cold , nothing will grow
 
I'm just a coaster but my wheels won't go
My legs are weak my heels are low
I'm just a coaster but my wheels won't roll
Can't make no headway on this road
What road?
 
And in the morning when you fill my eyes
I knew that day I couldn't do
Ah... no wrong , I couldn't do

LILLYWHITE

Back up on the mended road
I pause
Taking time to check the dial
And the Lillywhite I never knew her name
But she'll be passing my way sometime again
 
I raise my hand and touch the wheel
of change
Taking time to check the dial
Thank the Lillywhite I never knew her name
She'll be passing my way sometime again
 
She'll be passing my way sometime again
