you'll play along the road, born to die we float we float we all float

and keep you out of trouble today, someway 

my sun ray

i'm feeling down today no matter how low, i am
killing time but it will not die oh no
all night all day i'm on my own
could you ring my bell, i'm waiting by the phone                               
talk to me talk about anything at all
make a walk with me to the park or... i don't know

i don't know, no
i just don't know, no

going down the way my mother showed
it is such a pity when a mothers love turns cold
come to me come for a cuddle and grow
make a stop to struggle, up is where i'll go

i'll go away, i think i'll better go away

swallow me sea, shells you cover me, come take me, dry or wet me
going down, swirl to the bottom i'm low, i know i might drown
so i'll go away

every night those dreams they come to me 
to make me happy or sad or just to make me see
all of a sudden i woke in a very strange place
i broke when i saw a woman without a face
there was no face, no there was no face
i think i'll better go away
i might leave today, oh yeah

glad i like the sea it will cover me 
and spit me up on the beach end of her story

blue heaven blue sea, big birds coming after me
swim back to the shore, i don't see them birds no more
one sky one sea, them blues in front of me
so tired to the bone, oh god i'm on my own

i'm on my own
yeah i'm on my own

nobody around my body to be found
between rocks and stones,big bird will eat my bones
no soul nearby, i lay down my head, i die                                
so long, farewell,i'm going up to heaven or hell

up to heaven or hell
heading down down down, to heaven or hell
going up or down to heaven or hell

blue heaven blue sea big bird has eaten me
i taste bittersweet,will god and the devil agree?
one sky one sea my thoughts are leaving me
it's quite a wonderous sight i'll meet the devil tonight
i'll meet the devil tonight, gonna meet with the devil tonight

she taste bittersweet, the devil did agree
she taste bittersweet, god and the devil agreed
i taste bittersweet

you lift me out of darker days
of lonesome nights, my body aches
are you the sun that lights my hair
that heats me up everywhere?

It thrills my soul to feel you near
near my mouth, when will you appear?
i feel your heat, like a sun you shine
you open up, open to be mine

It thrills my soul
i belong to no one but to you
it thrills my soul
come hurry

you're on your way, it ain't gonna be
a lonely night, i'm carefree
you'll find me here in the old oak tree 
will you be climbing up and take me?

It thrills my soul
i belong to no one but to you
it thrills my soul
knowing you don't want no woman but me
it thrills my soul

hurry hurry
come come hurry come,
come walk with me before the thrill is gone
but we can wait and we can hold on
hurry,  hurry

i belong to no one but to you
come thrill my soul
i know that you don't want no woman but me

come hurry

i know how to pull my hair out of my head, now you are dead
i know how to puke from misery, it's not a pretty sight to see
i dream about a way to bring you back, back to me
i dream, i dream

your movie played inside my head, i couldn't get myself to bed
woke every night in a haze, felt tears running down my face
prayed for a way to bring you back, back to me
in dreams, in dreams

it's been a long way down, it will be a long way back up
gonna go home soon now, gonna go home anyhow
to dream, to dream

those years are behind me now, just once in a while i cry
my friends say 'hey what is this?' i don't tell them it's you i miss
now i know the way to bring you back, back to me
i dream, i dream

it's been a long way down, it will be a long way to get back up
i'm gonna go home soon now, gonna go home anyhow
it's been a long way down, i might take a short cut to get back up
i'm gonna go home soon now, gonna go home anyhow
to dream

it's been a while for love to show
it's been a while for love to grow  
it's been a while for love to come back home again, home again
it's been a while

a shame it all went wrong
such a shame it all was  wrong  
i'm ashamed for all i' ve done
wrong i've done, wrong i've done
i'm ashamed

blame my heart it's restless,
blame my heart too restless
blame my heart, my soul, my mind, 
blame my heart it tears me apart
blame my heart

lay me down and take my crown, 
the damage is done, now take my crown
lay me down, lay me down and take my crown, burn it now
lay me down

the world was quiet when the snow fell down
the world was quiet when she hit the ground
all quiet, snow was falling down it was      
yes it was oh so quiet 
yes it was, and it's been a while
