Toad the wet sprocket - Dulcinea


 

 


Fly from heaven

Paul is making me nervous
Paul is making me scared
walk into this room and swaggers
like he's God's own messenger
change the name of my brother
change the things that he said
says that he speaks to him
but he never even knew the man
but i'd give my life for him

like water through my hands
you'd give him any ending
but if he's all you say
would he fly from heaven
to this world again
to this world again

take whatever you're needing
take whatever you can
we are broken from within
run to another land

they took my brother
they ripped him from me
to twist his words
as they did his body
denied his family
denied his beauty
to lay him down at the feet
of those he couldnt save
couldn't save, couldn't save

will it be the end
or is he still ascending
but if he's all you say
would he fly from heaven
to this world again
to this world again




woodburning

say what you need
i kick you down
no i'm fine
don't you hang around
and i find myself
here in another home
where everything moves so slow
so tired

take the longest day
throw it all away
i cant stand it
but i cant do anything
every day's the same
nothing ever change
i can't stand it
but i can't do anything

you should know by now
we're all liars
take me where you go
only higher

-chorus-

anything you want
anything you want
anything

-chorus-

here in another home
where everything moves so slow
so tired



Something's always wrong

another day
i call and never speak
and you would say
nothing's changed at all
and i cant feel
much hope for anything
if i won't be there
to catch you if you fall

again
it seems we meet
in the spaces
in between
we always say
it wont be long
but somethings always wrong

another game
of putting things aside
as if we'll come
back to them some time
a brace of hope
a pride of innocence
and you would say
something has gone wrong

-chorus-



Stupid

four times he came by
I did not look
talked about the reservoir
his thumbs were hooked
on his carpenter's belt
as he squinted in the sun
smiled wide many times
think I smiled back once

and its frightening
oh, I didnt expect that from you
it's blinding
serious are you seriously
I am feeling really stupid now

last time on the fly
work had all been done
sanding down the ceiling
so it ends up in te rug
we were waiting in the bathroom
'til he finished up
one short "hi" and no goodbye
she says she knew him once

-chorus-

and it's frightening
oh, I didn't expect that from you
it's blinding
can't see a thing I see
I see
and I am feeling
really stupid
I am feeling really stupid
I am really feeling
stupid now
stupid now
stupid now




crowing

been waiting
to find
you could've been happier given the time
if he'd make up his mind
you'd give yourself to anybody
who would cross that line

and it was never a question
he was crowing for repair
youd give him love and affection
you couldn't keep him there

get over regret
while you were sleeping with the angels
he was under the bed and the more skin
that you shed the more that the air in
your throat will linger
when you call him your friend

-chorus-

staring at a cold little hand
reading fault lines of a shell of a man
you were waiting for a word from above
wouldnt you know it no answer ever did come

and it was never a question
you were crowing for repair
you'd give him love and affection
but you couldn't keep him there




listen

well i wonder
do we learn
seems we're making
the same wrong turn
call you sacred
call you obscene
call you faithless
call you anything
call and you listen
listen listen listen
so i'm a liar
so it seems
my desire
could justify anything
so is there nothing
that lies in between
this cold silence
and a scream
scream
listen listen listen
listen listen listen
caught in headlines
we are frozen
cannot hide
theres no break
no time
if you can
i might listen
call and you listen
listen
listen
listen




windmills

i spend too much time raiding windmills
we go side by side laugh until it's right

take the darkest hour break it open
water to repair what we have broken
there's something that you won't show
waiting where the light goes
and anyway the wind blows
all worth waiting for

pull on the borders to lighten the load
tell all the passengers we're going home

i spend too much time seeking shelter
world without end couldn't hold her



nanci

I cant believe you
you bend your words
like Uri Geller's spoons
not quite safe here
when every judgement
seems to smack of doom

are you ok?
I'm just fine
you take Nanci
for me Loretta's fine

a legal precedent
could set us straight
but no one's brought up suit
and I'm assuming
that if they did
the point would still be moot

are you joking?
no I'm just fine
you take Nanci
for me Loretta's fine
no I've changed my mind
