Love Is RealBetween UsThe Last One


Love Is Real

wonder what you’re doing now
listen for your telephone call
nothing to talk about
make up any reason to stall
it’s exciting me
like playing out the scene on the balcony

and it’s real
and it’s real
so is there anything at all to talk about
my love is real
my love is real

wonder what you’re doing now
listen for the afternoon call
nothing to talk about
make up any reason at all
write my mythology
and find a new way to display the scene

and it’s real
and it’s real
so is there anything left to talk about
my love is so real
my love is real
I’m not afraid to tell you how I feel
my love is so real
my love is real

wonder what you’re doing now…


Between Us

he’s a gentle killer
who dreams of fame
sings like sorrow
and guides me away
he tempts me with whiskey
and draws himself near
and late in the night
it’s the one thing I hear

at sunset we swallow
another one down
watching the little dogs
chasing around
catching the droplets
of rain in their mouths
that fall from the leaves
between us and the clouds

we know we were born
for this darkening night
and something we used to know
says it’s alright
catching the droplets
of rain in our mouths
that fall from the leaves
between us and the clouds


The Last One

everybody wants someone to
compare to the last one in the picture
but they never even think of what they’re missing
and the last one never seems to leave the picture

everybody wants something more
out there in the big world of high business
but they don’t go off and throw away their labors
and abandon everything they’ve worked so hard for

all the evidence in the world
won’t say anything about your conscience
and I don’t believe you think of me that highly
and I don’t consider this your final offer

you took everything that you had
and left me to sift through all the pieces
and you never even told me what you wanted
you’re the last one to explain your own behavior
