Saint Saviour Tightrope

I walked a tightrope

without a care

The crowd took pictures

I walked the morning air

When I was falling

You held my hand

I heard you calling

As I returned to land

You acted like you knew me

You acted like you knew me

…and I knew you

I went to pieces

there in your arms

You straightened creases

You brought me back from harm

I ask no questions

You pin no blame

and when I’m restless

You set me free again

You acted like you knew me

The others see right through me

But you acted like you knew me

…and I knew you

Saint Saviour Bang

Let’s go out with a bang

Steal a car, let the sirens sing

You keep your keys by your side

like you said, you’re just here

for the ride

And you couldn’t care less,

if you tried.

Would you turn me in?

like a chime, leave my name to ring?

Well I couldn’t care less if I tried.

I couldn’t care less if I tried.

Cos I know your pain, and I can take it away

I’m not the same

I’m special baby, yeah.

Tongue tied and torn,

Spit it out, what you come here for?

Open house for the dead

Saw the signs, saw the light go red

but I couldn’t care less if I tried,

I couldn’t care less if I tried.

Cos I know your pain, and I can take it away

We’re one and the same, this is my favourite game.

I know your pain, comes around like a tired old refrain

let’s blow it away

let’s go out with a bang

Saint Saviour Horse

What happened to your horse

Did it run too fast

Did it run back home, like I’d run to your arms

Like a speeding train

Like a hurricane

Like a wrecking ball, breaking down the wall

Bullets and bombs couldn’t keep me from you

Over and over my words seal the truth

I’d give you my courage, my power, my youth

Bullets and bombs couldn’t keep me from you

I’ll be the horse

Looking so pale

Like Mama said

Colour of a bruise, be yellow soon

Let me see your face

And wash your wound

Won’t let you go, won’t let you go

Saint Saviour St. Malo

I’ve been proud of my place, taking the back streets,

not an easy thing to do, listen to me now

I’ve been out in a crowd, beating the bounds in and

It’s never been easy, bough from the willow tree,

keeping the birch off me, it’s never been easy

Take me walking if you go, round the walls of St. Malo

Knights in houses either side, one a secret one a bride

tell me stories as we go round the walls of St. Malo

I can hear them whispering as the night bird starts to sing

I’ve been counting the worms in the woodwork,

not an easy thing to do, listen to me now

I am humble and know keeping my eyes low but

It’s never been easy, bough from the willow tree

keeping the birch off me, it’s never been easy

Take me walking if you go, round the walls of St. Malo

Knights in houses either side, one a secret one a bride

tell me stories as we go round the walls of St. Malo

I can hear them whispering as the night bird starts to sing

Take me walking, let me go, round the walls of St. Malo

by the window she will stand, broken body in her hand

No more song of sweet sorrow, round the walls of St. Malo

Bind her heart in golden thread, for her nightingale is dead.

Saint Saviour Jennifer

Jennifer draws me in

Keeps me light, keeps me high

Jennifer, seventeen

Every night bathed in light

There’s no one close to you

Keep me light

Keep me high

There’s no one like me

Avarice and greed

Pride and vanity

Seven sins easy

Pretty heart

Pretty heart

I’m pretty hard

Pretty hard

Saint Saviour Chaos

From chaos comes control

A wall around my soul

From chaos comes control

A mathematic code

It multiplies in me

A formula I see

And Michael is the mould

From chaos comes control

Cos no one owns my soul

No no one owns my soul

I’m under my control

I’m under my control

No no one owns my soul

No no one owns my soul

I’m under my control

An order to it all

The measure of a man

In angle line and span

Sacred geometry

A perfect fit for me

And I can make my own

From my own flesh and bone

A miracle in math

A scientific fact

Saint Saviour Mercy

C’mon and open your eyes

You’re my explorer

Search light

Dark night

Calling out for your mercy

C’mon and shoot me again

You are my hunter

You read my mind, my friend

Calling out for your mercy

You are my history boy

You’ll be my future

Gold sand, spade hands

Calling out your mercy

When you are falling

I will follow you down

A mile of sky to the ground

Calling out your mercy

Saint Saviour I Call This Home

Thaw me out

Fire looks like glowing

Atmosphere has a knowing in here

I’m flying south

Got no time for the seasons

The North is proud but it’s freezing up here

I’ll call this home

But there’s nothing for me here

But there’s still love and it’s intense

I’ll walk alone

Cos I don’t feel free here

But I still love – it don’t make sense

I’m moving out

Cos I don’t care for the scenery

The sun don’t shine any more for me at home

I’ll write about the times I had that were dear to me

In a town where all of the spring birds have flown

Saint Saviour Liberty

Tempest tost

Tempers lost

Sail to me, liberty

Over seas

Mountain tops

Fly to me, liberty

It’s a question for you

It’s a question for me

Are we really free?

We all build our own walls

One way or another we will do our time

No man is an island

One way or another we all stand in line

Tears I shed, innocently led

All mistakes are made, and replayed

Like history, who the hell are we

At liberty, liberty?

Dip it in gold

Lo and behold

What do you see

Liberty

Saint Saviour Woman Scorned

Times you wore angel eyes,

but I picked out those lies,

the cries of a sinner,

disguises are thinner when you’re closer,

times we were synchronized but I felt all those ties dissolve in the winter,

now I must begin again,

to be frozen.

So leave town, turn around,

Don’t let those feet touch the ground,

Turn tail, hit the trail,

Spin the wheel and set the sails,

‘Cos I don’t love

No I don’t love,

No I don’t love,

No I don’t love,

you,

you,

you,

you.

These are the words of a woman scorned

Hell hath no fury and I still feel burned

If time is a healer then give me a day

So I can learn how to walk away.

Time was you’d act so surprised.

but I saw through those sighs, the time I was woken,

and now you have spoken,

I hear you loud and clear.

Years before I realized, but now I’m old and wise,

and you’re looking younger,

but my heart is stronger, it goes on without you dear.

So burn this town to the ground, what you lost is what I found

Now it’s mine to hold and keep, as you sow so you shall reap

Now I don’t love,

No I don’t love,

No I don’t love,

No I don’t love,

you,

you.

These are the words of a woman scorned,

hell hath no fury but I still feel burned,

if time is a healer then give me day, so I can learn how to walk away,

these are the words of a woman scorned,

hell hath no fury yet I still feel burned.

These are the words of a woman scorned,

hell hath no fury but I still feel burned,

if time is a healer then give me day, so I can learn how to walk away,

these are the words of a woman scorned,

hell hath no fury yet I still feel burned.

Can I be forgiven for losing my faith in me?

In me.
