A Poor Man's Moody Blues - Barclay James Harvest



All the nights that I've missed you  
All the nights without end  
All the times that I've called you  
Only needing a friend
 

Now, your eyes shine with beauty 
That I missed long ago  
Guess, the truth is I love you 
I can't say any more
 

'Cause I need you 
Yes, I want you 
Yes, I love you
 

As I look from my window 
To the streets where you stand  
I am gazing through dark glass  
We can't walk hand in hand
 

Though your friends try to tell me 
Though your friends you defend  
They keep my heart from your heart 
We must be in the end
 

'Cause I love you 
Yes, I need you  
Yes, I love you, love you
 

All the nights that I've missed you 
All the nights without end  
All the times that I've called you  
Only needing a friend
 

Now, your eyes shine with beauty  
That I missed long ago 
Guess, the truth is I love you 
I can't say any more
 

'Cause I need you  
Yes, I want you 
Yes, I love you, love you
 

'Cause I need you 
Yes, I want you 
Yes, I love you, love you, love you

Open Car - Porcupine Tree



Nothing like this
Felt in her kiss
Cannot resist her
Fell for her charm
Lost in her arms
I keep a photograph
Give me a glimpse
Let me come in
Be there inside her
Here it begins
Here is the sin
Something to lie about


You think you're smart
I think you're art
We agree on this
It doesn't work
Feeling like dirt
Feeling like you don't care
We get a room
And in the gloom
She lights a cigarette
Clothes on the bed
Love me she said
I lose myself to her


I'm getting feelings
I'm hiding too well
(Bury the heart shaped shell)


Something broke inside my stomach
I let the pieces lie just where they fell
(Being with you is hell)


Hair blow in an open car
Summer dress slips down her arm
Hair blown in an open car


OK what's next?
After the sex
What do we do now?
Finding the time
Drawing the line
And never crossing it
Gave her the hours
Gave her the power
Cannot erase her
Gave her the truth
Gave her the proof
I gave her everything


I'm getting feelings
I'm hiding too well
(Bury the heart shaped shell)


Something broke inside my stomach
I let the pieces lie just where they fell
(Being with you is hell)


Hair blow in an open car
Summer dress slips down her arm
Hair blown in an open car
On a drive out to the farm


Hair blown in an open car

Hair blown in an open car
Summer dress slips down your arm
Hair blown in an open car

Lullaby - Blackfield



[Lyrics - Steven Wilson]

Share my cup
Tie me up
Never part
Break my heart


Go to sleep
Wound me deep
Be at peace
Make me bleed

Do no harm
Twist my arm
Lie with grace
Smash my face


Kiss the ground
Drag me down
Stop the noise
Smash my toys

How does it feel without your drugs? (Sing you a lullaby)
How does it feel with my love? (Sing you a lullaby)

Easter - Marillion



The ghost of a mist was on the field
The gray and the Green together
The noise of a distant farm machine
Out of the first light came

A tattered necklace of hedge end trees
On the southern side of the hill
Betrays where the border runs between
Where Mary Dunoon's boy fell

Easter here again
A time for the Blind to see
Easter
Surely now can all of your hearts be free

Out of the port of Liverpool
Bound for the North of Ireland
The wash of the spray and horsetail waves
The roll of the sea below

And Easter here again
A time for the Blind to see
Easter
Surely now can all of your hearts be free

What will you do?
Make a stone of your heart?
Will you set things right?
When you tear them apart?
Will you sleep at night?
With the plough and the stars alight?

What will you do?
With the wire & the gun?
That'll set things right
When it's said and done?
Will you sleep at night?
Is there so much love to hide?

Forgive
Forget
Sing 'Never again'
