A Hold Of Me

[No lyrics]

. . .


Drag me down in colors pink and gold
(Like a ship that's going under..
Bring me home in rain and thunder)
Bless the night before the day grows
old
(Like a ship that's going under...
Bring me home in rain and thunder)

Drag me down in colors pink and gold
(Like a ship that's going under...
I'll be home in rain and thunder)
Bless the night before the day grows
old
(With pink and...With pink and gold)

It's just a moment of terror
A fraction of bliss
Your hearts in my mouth and
My soul's in your wrist
I love you I think
But is it always like this with you?

Tuck me up with stories I've been
told
(Like a ship that's going under...
I'll be home in rain and thunder)
Then wake me up with days that
come and go
(With pink and...With pink and...With
pink and gold)

And when the record is over
The passion's been spent
The movie winds down and says
"The End" in French
I'll turn on the lights
But do I have to pretend it's true?

I love you....oh, oh, oh, oh...
and...
I need you...oh, oh, oh, oh...

Drag me down, Drag me down, oh,
oh, oh, oh...
Drag me down, Drag me down, oh,
oh, oh, oh...
Drag me down in colors pink and
gold.

Dave'd called me up yesterday
Everything he loved had moved away
I felt despair come crawling through
that phone
I know the feeling but don't get me
wrong
Dave I've always thought that you
were touched by fate
It's never easy but why throw it
away?
Maybe you were both chasing this
Flirt with death but never kiss her,
Dave

Oh, I keep dreaming, I'll set the
scene,
So what's a fiver? Why so mean?
The golden moment, the blinding
gleam
It's all over, that's too cheap.

I see you bleed,
I know you feel the squeeze,
But please,
Believe,
The view from on your knees
Deceives
Keep going.
Dave,

I know you're empty, I know you're
numb
And you can't function, I know that
you're drunk
But Dave I've always felt that you
were touched by fate
The thing that gets me is the stupid
waste.
So pick it up and don't put it down,
A newer story in another town

I see you bleed
I know you feel the squeeze
Time heals
Believe,
Then it will seem you dreamed these
things,
Long Ago.

Another Sad Story

[No lyrics]

. . .


Oh, I don't wanna have to take your
arm
But I will, said I will
Don't wanna have to damage anyone
But I'd kill, kiss and kill
I don't intend to take this lying down
With my head between my hands, no
I don't intend to copy any bird
That keeps it's head stuck in the
sand, oh

You scratch my back
And maybe I'll claw yours
You understand being used
And if you feel a little itchy now
You won't mind being abused

Tonight...the towers crumble
Tonight...the mountains fall
Tonight...no one stumbles
Tonight...no one stalls
Scratch you tonight

You don't wanna have to spill those
beans
but you will, I said you will
You got the numbers and the papers
here
And you will, kiss and spill
You check me out and then you reel
me in
Oh you check and you reel real fine
You're slummin' now with all those
friends you got
You've been slumming in the slime

You scratch my back
And maybe I'll claw yours
You understand being used
And if you feel a little itchy now
You won't mind being abused

Tonight...the towers crumble
Tonight...the mountain falls
Tonight...no one tumbles
Tonight...no one calls
Scratch you tonight

We're itchin' tonight, scratch you
tonight
All right, all right, you want me tonight,
yeah
Want me tonight, all right, all right
Do it tonight, sit tight
Fool me tonight, yeah yeah

Tonight...the towers crumble
Tonight...the mountains fall
Tonight...I heard you fumble
Tonight...the motor stalls
Tongiht, tonight, tonight, tonight
