Clear Water

Suddenly the seasons catching up with me
I can feel it in the air pushin up close to me
Summers sighed her last breath in a ragged breeze
Smokey clouds gather low. Come rain on me

Hard slap of rainfall, it’s taking me, it’s taking me down
I’m going under feel like I could, feel I wanta drown
All the parts of me that are scared and frayed
All the bits of me that are poorly made
All the scraps of me that are weak and afraid

I used to roam free like the wild horses do
Never had a problem deciding what to do
I was tempered with a lush and fearless heart
Thunder roll off my skin, and let the rain start

Hard slap of rainfall, it’s taking me, it’s taking me down
I’m going under feel like I could, feel I wanta drown
All the parts of me that are scared and frayed
All the bits of me that are poorly made
All the scraps of me that are weak and afraid

Clear water, wash me clean.  Saturate me in your stream.
My life could start anew. In the sparkle of morning dew

Solo

Images strike like a strobe light in the night
A tear, a trace, a smile lit face flashing so bright
I’m traveling through the storm towards the sun
Lighting shadows dance, please let the rain come

Hard slap of rainfall, it’s taking me, it’s taking me down
I’m going under feel like I could, feel I wanta drown
All the parts of me that are scared and frayed
All the bits of me that are poorly made
All the scraps of me that are weak and afraid
All the fears that I hide and have yet to face
All the times I’ve fallen fast from grace
All the tears that I’ve saved and have yet to cry
All the times I’ve had to say goodbye

Clear water wash me clean.  Saturate me in your stream
My life will start anew. In the sparkle of morning dew La la la la la…

Forget About Love

Loves a complicated thing
With too many strings
Forget about. Forget about love

Why can’t I keep it simple?
With nothing in the middle And forget about love

Want to line my mind with cupboards
And put my emotions away
Just keep out pleasure to while my hours away

I’ve had the best intentions
To keep my heart controlled
But then I got distracted and love’s got a hold

Want to lock my heart up tight and throw away the key
To keep from repeating my sad, history

Segment my feelings
Fragment my soul
Chase out emotion ya I’m on a roll
Get rid of weakness
Forget being kind
Walk out and leave em
Pretend that I’m blind
Don’t see the tears start
Just run for the door
Don’t have no feelings be cold like a cold, cold stone
And forget about, forget about love

Solo –

Want to lock my heart up tight And throw away the key
To keep from repeating my sad, sad history

Wish I could be like a cold, cold stone
Then I could leave you alone. And forget about, forget about love
Ya forget about, forget about love, mmm forget about, forget about love

(False ending)- ah Mon ami, my heart is in ruins, all alone, all alone all alone

Midnight Fall

Unchained released. Can’t stop Wont cease.
I’m balanced on a bed of coals
I’m looking down into the depths
For the light in a black soul

Submit to you and Follow through
Actions are louder then words
The subtle move of one obsessed
In the shadow of a black hole
It’s a midnight fall, a midnight fall into surrender

Controlled and slow. The night begins
Hanging on a razors edge
Crazed and hot forget you not
I couldn’t if I wanted to
It’s a midnight fall, a midnight fall into surrender (2X)

Solo

You will remind me
I will remember long past this night, this night of surrender
We are together lost between the gods and the dirt
Don’t worry baby I know it’s gonna hurt

Unfurl behold the hidden soul. Locked in a cage of bones
Take your hand and go with you
You’re gonna lead me home

Reduced to the underlying truth. I seem to like it under your thumb
It surprises me as much as you
I guess you never know anyone
It’s a midnight fall, a midnight fall into surrender 3X

My One Mistake ©

1998 Annie McIntyre/ Reed Fromer

Intoxicated
And stimulated
Disassociated with the truth

I lied to my self
I cry for myself
God I feel so blue

Leisurely love
When push turns to hug
Then the teasin’ stopped and I forget
The rules I wouldn’t break

You are my one
You are my one mistake

Exhilarated
Motivated
And separated from what I knew

Like a moth to the flame I feel no shame
In destroying myself for you

Desire won out reality fades
Convinced again that I can win and my heart will not break

You are my one
You are my one mistake

Said that I wouldn’t but Oh.
It felt so dangerous
Said that I wouldn’t
But one touch is contagious

SOLO

Isolated agitated and
Annihilated by my dream

Violent hunger I’m going under drowning in my appetite
For a love I can not shake

You are my one. You are my one mistake 3X

Somebody Right – C

©2001 Annie McIntyre, Wendy Fritz

Somebody touches and traces a face
Gentle and slowly they feel beauties grace
A head on a chest a heart  beating fast
Fingers entwined somebody laughs
Somebody wonders if this is what it’s like to be held in the arms of somebody right

Power of love encircles us
It’s true and it’s pure and it’s free
Power of love embraces us and will us to believe

To be in these arms so warm and so tight
Yes somebody waited the whole of their life
Relief from the shyness that somebody feels
A welling of feeling this is so real
Somebody wonders if this is what it’s like to be held in the arms of somebody right

Somebody matches somebody mirrors
Somebody faced most of their fears
Somebody feels like they found a home
Somebody feels like they’re not alone
Somebody wonders if this is what it’s like to be held in the arms of somebody right

Solo

Power of love encircles us
It’s true and it’s pure and it’s free
Power of love embraces us and will us to believe

Somebody waited the whole of their life to be in this moment to be in this night
Filled with a love so deep and so true somebody’s dreams finally came true
Somebody wonders if this is what it’s like to be held in the arms of somebody right
To be held in the arms of somebody right 4X
