The Sight

Fuzzy Dice

There is Also Love in the World

First you hurt me, I cried

Then you left me, I died

But you could come back babe, I wish

‘cause you’re my special love dish

 

I love you, it’s true

And my heart’s bleeding, true blue

But you could stop it, like this… (snap)

With just one dose of your kiss

 

‘Cause I’ve got a reminder

Right in front of my eyes wherever I go

 

Please remember I’ve got

Fuzzy dice, hanging from my mirror

Fuzzy dice, wish our love was clearer, than the

Fuzzy dice you gave me last year

Don’tcha know it I’ve got…

Fuzzy dice, hanging from my mirror

Fuzzy dice, wish our love was clearer, than the

Fuzzy dice you gave me last year

Oo-wah, oo-wah, oo-wah, oo-wah

Oo-wah, oo-wah, oo-wah, oo-wah

Love was easy, black and white

Just like my fuzzy dice

But there were other fellas in your eyes

And you were tellin’ love lies

 

Then I opened my hand

And you were spilling like sand

Through my fingers now, I’m sad

The pain I feel is so bad

 

‘Cause I’ve got a reminder

Right in front of my eyes wherever I go

 

Please remember I’ve got

Fuzzy dice, hanging from my mirror

Fuzzy dice, wish our love was clearer, than the

Fuzzy dice you gave me last year

Don’tcha know it I’ve got…

Fuzzy dice, hanging from my mirror

Fuzzy dice, wish our love was clearer, than the

Fuzzy dice you gave me last year

Oo-wah, oo-wah, oo-wah, oo-wah

Oo-wah, oo-wah, oo-wah, oo-wah

Fuzzy dice , oooo

fuh, fuh, fuh

Fuzzy dice, oooo

Fuzzy dice, oooo

fuh, fuh, fuh

Fuzzy dice, oooo

Fuzzy dice, right before my eyes

(Rollin')

Keeps you on my mind

(Rockin' my fuzzy dice)

For you, I would even trade away my fuzzy dice

Dangling in my view

wish I still had you

Wah, wah, wah

Please remember I’ve got

Fuzzy dice, hanging from my mirror

Fuzzy dice, wish our love was clearer, than the

Fuzzy dice you gave me last year

Don’tcha know it I’ve got…

Fuzzy dice, hanging from my mirror

Fuzzy dice, wish our love was clearer, than the

Fuzzy dice you gave me last year

Oo-wah, oo-wah, oo-wah, oo-wah

Oo-wah, oo-wah, oo-wah, oo-wah

oooo, Fuzzy dice

One Long Song Ago

I'm all out of words now

I've told all my tales to you

We don't live in a sweet melody

if we did, I'd have sailed to you

 One long song ago

 

We bet on our wishes forever

what do you do when wishes come true

We threw our hearts to the wind together

but I left the encores up to you

One long song ago

 

I'm not a star, and you're not a princess

This isn't a song or a scene from a play

No happy endings obscuring our senses

I can't go on hoping blindly this way anymore

Not anymore

I'm not a star, and you're not a princess

This isn't a song or a scene from a play

No happy endings obscuring our senses

I can't go on hoping blindly this way anymore

Not anymore

 

I'm all out of time now

It's all too clear, I was waiting in vain

I'm all out of rhymes I can use

I was sure I could take the blame

One long song ago

Long, long ago

Fuzzy Nights Alone

She moved me so…

How can I let her know

I woke up this morning

and I couldn’t find the floor

 

Now I’m out with friends and I

can’t think straight to save my life

Just thinking about her turns my daytime

into fuzzy nights

 

I was driving up and down this boulevard

Searching every face in every car

My dice are swinging back and forth

Like the ticking of a clock… tik tik tik

 

I didn’t get a number or an address,

I’m a fool

That would be so desperate

I thought I’d look uncool

 

But I’d rather look uncool

than be the fool that I am now

But she’ll never even know it

And I can’t tell her how…

 

…fuzzy are my nights

Think I forgot my name

And nothing feels the same

Just yesterday my future seemed so sure

Now nights are fuzzy and obscure

Fuzzy are my nights

How clear I see her

Didn’t know her, now I need her

Fate is hiding her in the great unknown

And now I spend my fuzzy nights alone

 

Now I’ve searched the streets, and I’ve searched my heart,

can’t shake this fear

We’ll miss each other by seconds only

and I’ll never hold her near

 

Walking ‘neath the critical moon

Praying to the stars for a sign or a clue 

The sound of my shoes in the dark

Like the ticking of a clock… tik tik tik

 

So sad I didn’t say a word

when I knew I had the chance

I let her walk away, like I was in a trance

 

I’m no longer in a trance I’m just entranced and don’t know how

to reinvent the moment

so I can tell her now…

 

…that fuzzy are my nights

Think I forgot my name

And nothing feels the same

Just yesterday my future seemed so sure

Now nights are fuzzy and obscure

Fuzzy are my nights

How clear I see her

Didn’t know her, now I need her

Fate is hiding her in the great unknown

And now I spend my fuzzy nights alone

 

Fuzz fuzz fuzzy fuzzy

Fuzz fuzzy fuzzy fuzz

Fuzzy fuzzy fuzzy fuzz

Fuzzy is as fuzzy does

Fuzz fuzz fuzzy fuzzy

Fuzz fuzzy fuzzy fuzz

Fuzzy fuzzy fuzzy fuzz

Fuzzy was he was he fuzz

are my fuzzy, fuzzy are my nights

And She Wonders

I don’t have the sight

The future is always closed to me

Especially where you’re concerned

Please let’s not fight

I’ll forget all the things you said of me

Maybe then we could work it out together

 

I won’t force your hand

The cause and effect of our words come back on me

Use all your magic, put us back together

What if I ran?

Would you come chasing after me?

And if you caught up would you hold on forever?

 

Don’t listen if you don’t want to

I see complacency in your eyes

And life will go on cause it’s got to

Maybe, after all, I have the sight… the sight

 

Caught up in the night

The feeling isn’t right

Would you believe me if I promised you heaven

You play it like a scene

Spurious and mean

Are you laughing inside at the things I’m saying

 

It’s in the air

like a wind across our open wound

There’ll come a time when it will feel better

If you just don’t care

Please have the mercy to walk away from me

We’ll part never having dealt heart on heart together

 

Caught up in the night

The feeling isn’t right

Would you believe me if I promised you heaven

You play it like a scene

Spurious and mean

Are you laughing inside at the things I’m saying

 

Don’t listen if you don’t want to

I see complacency in your eyes

And life will go on cause it’s got to

Maybe, after all, I have the sight… the sight

She wakes up early every morning

and gets ready for her day

The cat can keep her company,

though there isn’t much to say

A cup of coffee in her hand

and a paper she half reads

The coffee’s cold and the cup half full

by the time she has to leave

 

And she wonders,

why she has to work so hard to smile

Why every foot she walks at work

feels in her heart like miles and miles

And she wonders where the prince

they promised her

when she was young has gone

And time just passes, and passes, her by

 

She has a friend or two she sees,

not often or for long

And a sometimes lover far away,

who visits, then he’s gone

She’s been burned before and closed that door

but the memories still creep in

of the Cinderella promises

of childhood might-have-beens

 

And she wonders,

why she has to work so hard to smile

Why every foot she walks at work

feels in her heart like miles and miles

And she wonders where the prince

they promised her

when she was young has gone

And time just passes, and passes, her by

 

Our young dreams get buried ‘neath

the plodding minutes of our lives

All the dull routines we fall into

just trying to survive

Until one day we wake up

and wonder where the wonder’s gone

And it’s then we’ll hear the child inside

who’s been there all along

 

No woman’s heart has ever aged

an instant passed 18

Though the years paint on the mask of time

that makes it hard to see

And that prince who never came

still holds a place in that young heart

And she holds him close because letting go

would tear her hopes apart

 

And she wonders,

why she has to work so hard to smile

Why every foot she walks at work

feels in her heart like miles and miles

And she wonders where the prince

they promised her

when she was young has gone

And time just passes, and passes, her by

 

Time just passes, and passes…

Inward Looking Out

We owe it to the children

to shelter them from all the sadness

We owe it to the hopeless

to raise them up above the madness

We owe it to ourselves

to look for the happiness, do we, do we ever?

 

We owe it to the sun

to burn away the filth that hides it

We owe it to the ocean

to cleanse the refuse that defiles it

We owe it to the Earth

to look for an answer, are we, do we ever?

 

We owe it to our past

to heal the hateful and belligerent

We owe it to our future

to teach the frightened and the ignorant

We owe it to ourselves

to make a lasting effort, will we, will we ever?

 

We owe it to the seasons

now the summer seems too cold

We owe it for the reason

that because of us the Earth’s too old too soon

 

We owe it to the children… we owe it to the truth

We owe it to the sun… we owe it to the Earth

(to save the world’s imperiled oceans)

We owe it to our souls… (to wipe away the tear stains)

We owe it to the seasons… we owe it for the reason…

that we owe it to ourselves, to look… do we, will we ever

If She Breaks My Heart (will I die)

rudolph_valentino-39271_edited.jpg

Silent Lover

We played like children

till it was time to work or hide our secrets

n our hands behind our backs

We loved like dreamers

It all seemed so forever,

much more real than the remaining photographs

 

Time never stumbles… not time

I often stumble… unlike time

 

We fought like lovers

and barely scratched the surface,

never hitting hard enough to really hurt

 

Mother, if she breaks my heart…

will I die?

 

We quit like strangers

The flower that we sowed and thought perennial

ies dormant in the earth

 

Time never stumbles… no, not time

I often stumble… unlike time

 

Mother, if she breaks my heart…

will I die?

I’ve been through the whole trip before

I gave all I had to a love who needed more

than any three lovers could give, and that’s no way to live

 

Well, I’ve seen the mask by the door

When we first met, that’s the face that she wore

And I didn’t know who was left, and I don’t like to guess

 

So I’ll be a silent lover

Just holding you in my mind

And I’ll stay a silent lover, and you will stay kind

And I won’t have to watch love die again

I won’t have to watch love die

 

Once or twice I fell head over heart

But the lovers I left, were just tearing me apart

They complained that I just wouldn’t change,

and they weren’t the same

 

So I’ll be a silent lover

Just holding you in my mind

And I’ll stay a silent lover, and you will stay kind

And I won’t have to watch love die again

 

Loneliness isn’t the best way to feel

But chameleon lovers will turn into others

all my daydreams seem much more real

 

So I’ll be a silent lover

Just holding you in my mind

And I’ll stay a silent lover, and you will stay kind

And I won’t have to watch love die again

No, never again

I won't have to watch

I won’t have to watch love die

The Dark

pen_and_weapon_2394025.jpg

Sometimes I see a door that’s closed

That walks around in human clothes

and more and more, no one can find the key

And I wonder as I walk on by,

is anything behind their eyes?

The painted, varnished wood is all I see

And I’ve been traveling forever, and there’s no road back

Oh, it feels like I may never get the things I lack

And the music only helps to hold the silence back

But the dark keeps closing in

 

“Well, we’re here to help,” I hear them say

But what they do says, “go away,

you’ll never find the help you really need.”

And the law just helps to turn the screws,

unless, of course, you’re wealthy too,

you’ll never find the space to simply be

 

On, a drowning man may kill you reaching for the air

And a few insane may kill you

just because you’re dark or fair

But I’ll never understand the ones

with graphite knives and paper guns

and red tape hearts that beat but just don’t care...

And I’ve been traveling forever, and there’s no road back

And it feels like I may never get the things I lack

And the music only helps to hold the silence back

But the dark keeps closing in

The dark keeps closing in

hollow.jpg

Hollow

She thinks what she needs most is a vacation

She thinks that would cure her great fatigue

I asked her what she’d do if she had

all the time she wanted

She said she’d sit at home and watch T.V.

 

But that isn’t living, that’s just existing

If that’s all you look for, that’s all you’ll find

 

Sometimes you will lose

It's a pain she's never faced

‘Cause she's brave enough to taste

But she feels hollow

Life is like meal

And she’s taking little bites

And she’s trying every dish

But she don’t swallow

 

She really does believe in ever after

That someday she will meet her perfect prince

But she’s running from the monsters

that hide inside her walls

And we who love her haven’t seen her since

 

And that isn’t passion, that’s just pain

If that’s what you look for, you’ll find the same

 

She barely has a clue of who she has been

So how can she know who she’s going to be

She’s mixing tints & hues

unaware she’s color blind

But she knows lonely is a shade

that you can breathe

 

Sometimes you will lose

It's a pain she's never faced

‘Cause she's brave enough to taste

But she feels hollow

Life is like meal

And she’s taking little bites

And she’s trying every dish

 

Life is like meal

And she’s taking little bites

And she’s trying every dish

But still feels hollow

The less that you demand

The more she’s got to give

And she’ll touch you where you live

But she don’t swallow

 

No, she can’t swallow
