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

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

a short remix

Have you ever seen the rain
in the heat of summer?

an unchained melody
where everything is beautiful

all I really want to do is
wake the town and tell the people
how it happened once before

Seven Spanish sisters
and one tin soldier

an angel flying too close to the ground
all for the love of a girl

raindrops keep falling on my head
shake me, wake me
to a new world in the morning

in the Blue Bayou
love changes everything

the tears of a clown
are the stairway to heaven

it’s funny how time slips away
before the last teardrop falls
in the city of New Orleans

The last rose of summer
is somewhere out there
