22 Vertigo’s Zone

Vertigo’s Zone

His friend’s call him Scottie
Retired from the force
An ord’nary Joe
Who lets life take its course
He saw a man die
Whom he could not save
Now when he looks down
The ground gives away

He takes an assignment
to follow a blonde
Who thinks she’s possessed
by a ghost from beyond
She stands by a grave
She circles around
Right down to the bay
Where she’s almost drowned

Wandering, wandering over the town
Stalking the beauty who wore a black gown
Seeking an answer to riddles unknown
Falling and falling in Vertigo’s zone

He thinks he is Orpheus
king of the lyre
For he saved his lady
From funeral pyre
He is her knight
Her guiding star
And she will be safe
If he rides in her car

But he cannot save her
Possessed by the dead
She climbs up the tower
Where he cannot tread
She casts herself down
He gasps in despair
He’s left with a wound
That no man can bear

Wandering, wandering over the town
Stalking the beauty who wore a black gown
Seeking an answer to riddles unknown
Falling and falling in Vertigo’s zone

Many months later
He sees on the street
A woman like Maddie
Though quite indiscreet
He feels compelled
To give her some gloss
And mold her into
The woman he lost

Yet just at the moment
The past is reborn
And they have made love
Time’s ribbon is torn
Her necklace reveals
It’s all been contrived
Since Maddie is Judy
She was never alive

Wandering, wandering over the town
Stalking the beauty who wore a black gown
Seeking an answer to riddles unknown
Falling and falling in Vertigo’s zone

The cruelest of fates
For a man in love lost
He had been tricked
By a devilish plot
So he dragged her back
To where time had stopped
To the top of the tower
Where the body had dropped

How could she do this
He’d wanted her so
Love me she pleaded
Now they both know
But it was too late
She fell from the blow
And he lost her for good
Twice in a row

Wandering, wandering over the town
Stalking the beauty who wore a black gown
Seeking an answer to riddles unknown
Falling and falling in Vertigo’s zone

21 Disco Dancing

Disco Dancing

When Jenny was in high school
She didn’t like the work
She fooled around with David
But thought he was a jerk
Sometimes she slipped out early
Sometimes she was alone
But when it got to weekends
She came into her own

For she went

Disco, disco dancing
Burning up the floor
She is so enchanting
The one they all adore
She smiles at the attention
But men are not her game
To move is her intention
Dancing queen’s her name

Home is Hounslow high street
Weather’s getting hot
Johnnie’s lost his front teeth
Debbie’s in her cot
Jenny’s in the kitchen
Cleaning up the mess
All that she can think of
Is putting on that dress

And going

Disco, disco dancing
Burning up the floor
She is so enchanting
The one they all adore
She smiles the attention
But men are not her game
To move is her intention
Dancing queen’s her name

Johnnie’s in the army
Debbie acts in plays
Jenny’s left her old man
For his womanizing ways
M and S is work place
Kind of a career
But Friday night is girl’s night
Time to have a beer

Then she goes

Disco, disco dancing
Burning up the floor
She is so enchanting
The one they all adore
She smiles at the attention
But men are not her game
To move is her intention
Dancing queen’s her name

Ooooooo
Ooooooo
Ooooooo
Ahhhhhh

Disco, disco dancing
Burning up the floor
She is so enchanting
The one they all adore
She smiles at the attention
But men are not her game
To move is her intention
Dancing queen’s her name

20 Let Me Lie With You

Let Me Lie With You

I want you to show me what love really is
Wanna feel your touch, wanna feel your kiss
When you are with me the world is brand new
And I can’t stop watching the things that you do

Let me lie with you
Wanna cry with you
I could die with you
If you tell me so
With your eyes so true
Never lie to you
Wanna love you do
Never let you go

I know you can give me all that I need
Just take your time, love is the seed
The promise of happiness lies in your game
And I wanna burn in your beautiful flame

When the mountains are steep
And you can’t find your feet
I’ll be right there to guide you
When the day turns to night
And you can’t see the light
I’ll be right there beside you

Let me lie with you
Wanna cry with you
I could die with you
If you tell me so
With your eyes so true
Never lie to you
Wanna love you do
Never let you go

19 Riding Lessons

19 Riding Lessons

She had an elegant way, her makeup was neat
She wore a tight fitting blouse, and boots on her feet
She had lipstick red lips, she was very direct
She was looking for something and it wasn’t respect

She took me riding, when the sun was real hot
She took me riding, and I liked it a lot
She took me riding, in her leathers and crop
She took me riding, and she gave it all she got

She had married a suit all caught up making dough
She was bored in the house with being alone
She always liked horses so she started a farm
And she was my teacher way down in the barn

She took me riding, when the sun was real hot
She took me riding, and I liked it a lot
She took me riding, in her leathers and crop
She took me riding, and she gave it all she got

You could smell the horses and the freshly made hay
When she lay me down in the middle of the day
Perhaps you could see it as part of God’s plan
‘Cause I was reborn in the guise of a man

She took me riding, when the sun was real hot
She took me riding, and I liked it a lot
She took me riding, in her leathers and crop
She took me riding, and she gave it all she got

It’s been a long time but I still feel her near
Her husky commands are the ones I still hear
She taught me much more than I understood
I was lost in her world and it felt really good

She took me riding, when the sun was real hot
She took me riding, and I liked it a lot
She took me riding, in her leathers and crop
She took me riding, and she gave it all she got

Ride with me, Ride with me, Ride with me, Won’t you Ride with me
Ride with me, Ride with me, Ride with me, Won’t you Ride with me

18 Icarus

18 Icarus

Daedalus said, plume your head
Feathered wing your arm
You’ll fly high, cannot die
If you but fear the sun
You are bird, fly unheard
Life has just begun
Taking flight, you’ll seize the night
Time will come undone

Wanna fly like the wind
Take it high hear it ring
Reach the sky match the wing
Life or die you will sing

Floating weeds, thickening breeze
With the air you rise
Watch the wires, dodge the spires
Fearless in your eyes
On the brink, do not think
Bank the ridge and glide
Once you breathe, take your leave
Swoon into a dive

Wanna fly like the wind
Take it high hear it ring
Reach the sky match the wing
Life or die you will sing

Leave the world, wings unfurled
Mortal coils undone
Eyes close up, nostrils shut
Closer to the sun
Unconscious mind, feathered kind
Singular emotion
Instinct reigns, like moth to flame
Dissolve in starry ocean.

Wanna fly like the wind
Take it high hear it ring
Reach the sky match the wing
Life or die you will sing

17 Life Insurance

Life Insurance

He fell in love, he gave her life
He treated her just like a wife
He gave her shelter and a home
Succor for those times alone

He gave her peace, he gave her hope
He helped her when she couldn’t cope
When she sought space he gave her more
When times were hard he’d reach her door

Life insurance
He was her life insurance
From floods and torrents
He was her life insurance

Life insurance
He was her life insurance
He offered full assurance
He was her life insurance

Her lack of touch he took for naught
Until confronted with the thought
That he appeared to her mind
A source of comfort, cash, and time

Life insurance
He was her life insurance
From floods and torrents
He was her life insurance

Life insurance
He was her life insurance
He offered full assurance
He was her life insurance

Was he of a mind to speak?
Would he act and take his leave?
Could he not bear to make choice
For fear he might not have a voice?

The years went by he worked a lot
The more he gave the less he got
Till finally her need for him
Became the grave that he lay in

Life insurance
He was her life insurance
From floods and torrents
He was her life insurance

Life insurance
He was her life insurance
He offered full assurance
He was her life insurance

16 For You

For You

When I longed for your calling
I could see that I’d fallen for you
When I found that without you
I’m nervous and doubt you I knew
You give me such sweet pleasure
Wanna love you forever I do
It’s hard to believe
Second times such a breeze for us two

For you
I’d do anything for you
With you
everything I do is new

It’s easy to be critical of life
And be cynical too
Can’t promise a solution
To global pollution it’s true
But if we’re together
The skies will be forever blue
And I’ll find shelter
From the helter skelter with you

For you
I’d do anything for you
With you
everything I do is new

Let’s make hay in the sunshine
And make love with the moonshine in view
Now that we’re together
Sure to find something clever to do
And when trouble flares
I’ll be right there for you
And I’ll smile when I’m older
With you on my shoulder it’s true

For you
I’d do anything for you
With you
everything I do is new
