YOUR SWEET REDEMPTION

I’ve tried nearly every thing

to snap out of this feeling

cd on the dusty pile

I will give you

a fair trial

Take me by the hand

and lead me through

 your sweet redemption

Take me by the hand

and feed me

your sweet redemption

cos you have been here too

and when you hit that truth

i’m shaking

trembling

weeping

with gratitude

You have shown me that you know

how big a love can grow

how low a man can fall

how rock and roll is real

CHORUS

So stop checking all your screens

and stop waiting      for a sign

go and seek   good company

pull your socks up, let it be

CHORUS

YOUR SWEET REDEMPTION

MY BABY’S NOT AT HOME

My baby’s not at home

in a dark place, she’s all alone

the black dog is pulling

but there’s no bone

she wants me to stay

she tells me to go


Now my baby’s crying again

it’s no use trying to pretend

that the sun is shining over the hill

or you’ll get better

if you swallow this pill


And I’m down                               on my knees

going                                            please please please

come back to me              

before I fall apart

from your telling me                    what I am not


I tell my baby she can lean on me

she pummels my soul

until it bleeds

I hold out my arms

she turns away

but she comes back

at the end of the day


And she’s down                          

on her knees

going                                             please please please

come back to me              

before I fall apart

from your telling me                    what I am not


AND I WANT TO GET EVERYONE

WHO MADE HER FEEL THIS WAY

AND SIT THEM DOWN                               TO WATCH THE FILM

AND IN THAT CINEMA

ON JUDGEMENT DAY

THERE’S ONE SEAT LEFT                           FOR YOU OR ME

WELL LET IT BE


Now my baby’s giving it all

but I’m hiding behind the wall

she’s scraping her hands, trying to find the door

but I can’t hear her

any more


And we’re down

on our knees

going                                       please please please

forgive me love

for what I have done

I made you cry                       I made you run

I never want

to be apart

I’ll drink your love                   I’ll feed your heart


My baby’s sleeping now

curls across her amber brow

she stretches out                     her sculptor’s arms

leans into me and says

“can you turn over baby?”

MY BABY’S NOT AT HOME

AND WHEN SHE SANG

You

you stand up on the stage

voice as clear as a bell

that tolls

for me

We

are on the same page

you tell the truth

no one can sleep safe

in their beds

and everyone’s heart

everyone’s heart

is torn to shreds

       

And when she sang             true love never dies

it was then that the tears conquered me

and when she sang            that it’s never too late

then I knew

it was too late

for me

      

Losers

queue up to sing wer blues

jostling for a seat

I could never afford

You

you sing of winners

be they in the stocks

or on the rocks

and everyone’s heart

everyone’s heart

is on the block

      

CHORUS

      

Outside

the bombs are raining down

the bombs we make so well

the bombs we have

to sell

He

is sleeping on the ground

best friend by his side

Momma

in his dreams

and everyone’s heart

everyone’s heart

tests the seams

      

CHORUS

      

Play

play me a song

make it sweet

don’t make it too long

Say

say something true

and when we meet

let me sing with

You

you stand up on the stage

voice as clear as a bell

that tolls

for me
