Patrick Wolf The Future

Summer in San Francisco

Kissing chlorine in the swimming pool

Out of fuel at the Phoenix motel

I slept alone again that night

And sweet dreams of Mother Ireland

And Father Albion

Sweet dream

That you’ll come near, I see my future clear

And the threshold appears

And I am carrying you over, carrying you over

You come near, I see my future clear

And the threshold appears

And I am carrying you over, carrying you over

Into the hallway of our new home

Chaos outside

But I’ve got your back

We’ve got our own paradise

And we are private worlds away from

Public eyes

I say I love you more than my life

Truth completely

You come near, I see my future clear

And the threshold appears

And I am carrying you over, carrying you over

You come near, I see my future clear

And the threshold appears

And I am carrying you over, carrying me over

Into the best days of the rest days of our lives

Into the future

Carrying you over, carrying you over

Into the future

Carrying me over

Patrick Wolf Eulogy

So long, my friend

There must always be an end

But all our love and life and song

Carries on, I carry it on

Now the lightships are guiding you

Over the sea

And the lightships are sailing you

Away from me

Over the edge of the world

The edge of the world

Over the edge

But I carry you on

I carry you on

And I carry on

Patrick Wolf Peter Pan

I was stumbling into battle

I was walking into walls

’till I walked myself to peter

and I let my shadows fall.

he’s a boy who never ages.

rides a goat around the lake

he’s a friend who never falters

to change my circling fate.

he said dance across the battle

but punch straight through that wall

though your knuckles may be bleeding

they’ll be healed before the fall.

after war comes peace

after peace comes war

but remember

if it weren’t for fighting.

we’d be fighting for ever mo

Patrick Wolf Paris

It was seven in the morning when the spark

began to give.

The bath was spilling over, my self pity spilling with it.

So I, I fled the country to start it all again

and I found myself in Paris in the cemetery rain.

Dear anne came to me and took me by the arm.

Showed me old disasters embedded in the palm.

Warned me of a lady with the sun behind her head.

With a a granite neck, a singer who can never sing again.

but you, my love:

You must come, come to joy, turn your head to the sun

its down to you, you can shine,

you can shake all the sorrow from your palm..

It’s down to you if you dare to come to joy.

What was it i ran from, what burnt away inside?

Four hundred schoolboys and a lawyer at my side.

Always running with these legs going nowhere.

A ghost in the system, and angel on the stairs…

But oh! This time….

I shall turn, turn my head to the sun..

They are marching out of me.. One by one.

Walking free. Oh! It’s going out of….

Oh! I can feel it moving, this time, yeah. I’m really moving.

Now, are you ready to come, come to joy,

turn your head to the sun it’s down to you, you can shine, you can give it up.

It’s all down to you, hold the key in your hands, it’s all in your hands.

It’s all in the palm of your hands. [x4]

Patrick Wolf Demolition

Since I met you. this house has started to decay

and every wall that once was clean. has turned a shade of grey.

so much to rescue. so much you just cant understand

now the streets are dark and empty. and the problems in our hands.

I cant leave you. see back home my house is falling down.

I cant leave you. and back home my house is falling down

since I met you. my basement has started to bleed

the floors are all collapsing. still I’m begging to be free

Patrick Wolf Damaris

Black rain

Floods the downs

Ferrets burrow

Moles make mounds

Round your bones

Deep underground

But nobody knows

Nobody knows

How I wait for you

Summer, Spring

Autumn, Winter

Here perishing

Gypsy, stray

Bleak orphan

No one could say

The land you came from

But deep in my arms

You belonged

But nobody knows

No body knows

How I wait for you

Summer, Spring

Autumn, Winter

Here perishing

My god damned

Damaris

Killed with last kiss

God damned

Damaris

I loved you

Goddam these tears

And this religion

Thought I was more

Than just my father’s son

Who says in limbo

Be where you’ve gone

But nobody knows

No body knows

How I wait for you

Summer, Spring

Autumn, Winter

Here perishing

My god damned

Damaris

Killed with last kiss

God damned

Damaris

I loved you

And now I kiss

I kiss the earth

Oh rise up

Rise up

Rise up

Now

From the earth

And I smash my fist

Into the earth

Oh rise up

Rise up

Rise up

Now

From the earth

I loved you

Black rain

Floods the downs

The black rain

Black rain

Patrick Wolf Bloodbeat

I wake at dusk to go alone

Without a light to the unknown

I want this night inside of me

I want to feel, I want this speeding

I want that speeding

My blood beats black tonight

No need for comfort, no need for light

I am hunting for secrets tonight

Eat the sorrow, lick the spark

Uh, oh, my blood beats dark

And here it comes, it comes for me

I want to run, I want to scream

Get in my car with both eyes closed

Full pedal down and I am speeding

My blood beats black tonight

No need for comfort, no need for light

I am hunting down demons tonight

Eat the terror, lick the spark

Uh, oh, my blood beats dark

Patrick Wolf Theseus

So once you’ve killed the minotaur

How you gonna find your way out of the maze

Here the jealous hand of bitter men

Carve the meat before the table is laid

And they are hungry, they are hungry for you

And they are hungry, they are hungry for you

With an appetite so insatiable

They are hungry, they are hungry for you

The warm thread of love leads you to freedom

Once the hero’s deed is done

You leave her lying without a parasol

In the slow solitaire sun

And she is hungry, she is hungry for you

And she is hungry, she is hungry for you

With an appetite so generous

She is hungry, she is hungry for you

No surrender to a lover

Or the wars of the news

Of many blisses to uncover

A black sail billows, the sun hits a blade

And you are hungry, you are hungry for you

And you are hungry, you are hungry for you

With an appetite so dangerous

You are hungry, you are hungry for you
