1987

i heard a rumour,
don’t mean nothing

somebody lied

little lies
right from the start
& you’re the last one to know

one promise too late,
that’s just the way it is

at this moment
the moon is still over her shoulder
why does it have to be?

don’t get me wrong,
i know where i’m going

& someday,
when smokey sings,
i’ll have a change of heart

1986

you’re the last thing i needed tonight
heartbeat in the darkness

rockin’ with the rhythm of the rain
it’ll be me
diggin’ up bones

hearts weren’t made to break
until i met you

1985

broken wings
under a raging moon

tonight she comes
after the fire

she’s waiting
hungry for heaven

(knocking at your back door
and nobody’s home)

it’s too late for goodbyes
