Track Name: Rosie
You said something like
i don't think that i
can do it
i know i ask
much too much
of your head
but we were falling
we were falling
right out of the blue
right into it...

Rosie Rosie
how long will you deny me
take my hand
we’re out of here
we’ll take the train
far to the country
by the sea

Rosie Rosie
how long will you deny me
you lost your head
back in Spain
you blame me
but its just a country
by the sea
Track Name: Daisy Chains
Lay down your daisy chains
you’ll never find a kiss so sweet
wide eye’d like a hurricane
waiting by the river way

and he could be
oh so handsome
you know what the gypsies say
come back this time tomorrow
and wait by the river way

and he could be as tall as tree
deep as the ocean as smart as can be
but oh if he could carry me
away and take my hand

well on the bridge
he look at me
and fell right in the river way
well he could never salvation be
floating down the river way

and he could be as tall as tree
deep as the ocean as smart as can be
but oh if he could carry me
away and take my hand

floating down the river way
damn those daisy chains
floating down the river way
he’ll not come this way again
floating down the river way
he’ll not come this way again
floating down the river way
Track Name: Beautiful
Beautiful, Beautiful, Beautiful long black hair
beautiful boy, beautiful, beautiful long black hair
I believed every word you said
you had me with my bags packed
turned my head and knife in my back
dust on your boots and shovel in your hand
dust on your boots and....

holy mother of god, how can you be so blind
holy mother of god, how can you be so blind

Beautiful, Beautiful, Beautiful long black hair
beautiful boy, beautiful, beautiful long black hair
I believed every word you said
you had me with my bags packed
turned my head and knife in my back
dust on your boots and shovel in your hand
dust on your boots and....

holy mother of god, how can you be so blind
holy mother of god, how can you be so blind
how can you be so blind, how can you be so blind

ahhh.... beautiful, beautiful, beautiful long black hair, beautiful long black hair
Track Name: Big Trees
Big Trees by ArtemesiaBlack

I see myself in the old man’s eyes
lilly white neck of the girl I sat behind
on the bus
the eternal lines
the black of the night as I ride

I see myself in the in pain of the fingers
of the boy in the super market isle
of the girl reading
of the coffee
of the spoon
as she twists her hair

Where do I go from here
Where do I go from here

I never used the feather I found
to make the quill
to write you love letters
but I said everything that I felt
and meant it

Where do we go from here
Where do we go from here

I’ll not lie,
I’ll not run,
I’ll not leave until I’m done
Big Trees sway
from the ground up
Big trees sway
Big trees sway

I see myself in every person I see
I see you I see you in me
and we said everything that we felt
and meant it
Where do we go from here
Where do we go from here
Where do we go from here
Track Name: Ship Wreck
I saw JB standing
down at Ottway shore
We watched the big ship sinking
6 miles from the shore
6 miles from the shore

The wind it lashed my face dear
my eyes burned from the foam
I watched my fellows flailing
as the mask came down
as the mask came down

The waves splashed at my face while
the icy antarctic sea
embraced my shivers to my chest
and took life from me
and
took the life from me
Track Name: Mary Janes
sixteen years these mary-janes
followed your promises
up and down the east coast
in our beatup pickup

I was young and I was pretty - you said
and you were... the only man I’d had
and you were... and you were....
a son of a gun

it wasn’t just the money
it was a living, if living is a life

ahah
thats me in the window, thats me
that me in the window...

years flash by, tears run dry
i looked to the clouds and
saw my future in the sky
hear the words, you hide behind
nothing blue on the outside,
on the inside i’m slowly dying

ahah
thats me in the window, thats me
that me in the window...

they say I fell, they say...
I drowned or something
they say I wasnt happy, but
I was happy... with you

ahah
thats me in the window, thats me
that me in the window...
Track Name: ArtmesiaBlack - Stutter
I stumble
round your
white facade
and torture
strangers
with my eyes
eleven hours I
can stand here
and then never said
goodbye

have I fantasised
my life
so far
deep and wide and
long and round
coz it only takes some
stupid words
to bring everything
above the ground

I am infatuated
yes i’m just mesmerized
I lie awake for hours
and wonder
why can’t I
why can’t I
I , I , I
have you
Track Name: Love
When was it my love,
when the roses withered,
and all the leaves turned brown,
we hardly noticed,
Track Name: Angelene ( PJ.Harvey Cover )
My first name Angelene
Prettiest mess you’ve ever seen
Love for money is my sin
Any man calls, I’ll let him in

Rose is my colour, and white
Pretty mouth and green my eyes
I see men come and go
But there’ll be one who will collect my soul and come to me

Two-thousand miles away
He walks upon the coast
Two-thousand miles away
It lays open like a road

Dear God, life ain’t kind
People getting born and dying
But I’ve heard there’s joy untold
Lays on that open road in front of me

Two-thousand miles away
He walks upon the coast
Two-thousand miles away
It lays open like a road

My first name is Angelene
