Faces in the Rain

Leo Wyard, 1996

And she's got a lot of time on her hands
And she's got a lot of things on her mind
And he says he'll meet her down by the bar
She says she's got to be home by one

Painting pictures in her mind
Brightest colours she can find
Sees him getting off the train
Making faces in the rain

She says she's gonna marry him some day
And he says he'd like to see things turn out that way
And she's saving up to buy him a ring
And he'd never said he loves her but he does

Painting flowers in his head
Thinking of the things she said
Sends her er er er and change
One day he'll take her away

John

Leo Wyard, 1995

Tell his company by the company he keeps
His wheels are red, he's one of us
He'll take you to the place uptown where he once stood
And show you where he used to dream

He's been here as long as he can care to tell
He thinks he's seen you here before
You wouldn't know me by the company I keep
I'm different when I'm all alone

And he laughs like you knew he'd always laugh
And you wish you could laugh too
And he talks but you never seem to hear his point of view

You start to see the world through his eyes
You start to see why he's still here
But then your mind floats out the window
Back to the time that you first knew

And you cry like you know you should have cried
When you heard so long ago
And he stares 'cos he doesn't know the company you keep


Help me up from the ice

Leo Wyard, c.1988

Help me up from the ice I seem to have fallen down
Hold my hand and skate with me
It's cold outside though I'm so warm
No other place I'd rather be

Magazine articles and feet in mouth
I wonder what is it that she feels
Do you love me too? Kiss me goodnight
Or should I just sit and watch the wheels?

Memories never fade you're strong in my mind
Don't let it go now love's just too hard to find
Memories never fade smiling now you're mine
Yet too much feeling and too little time

Breakfast in bed and crazy blue skiers
We're so much alike if you just think
Christmas cards I'm crazy 'bout you
Remember when ice was on the rink

All of our dreams and all our hopes
I've never seen a shooting star
Don't you ever forget about me
There's a place for us both if we carry this far

'Cos you hold a place in my heart
And there's no one but you to blame
And you know that underneath it all we're the same

Just look at you now

Just look at you now
You're asleep love, you're at peace love
With the world all around

And you're so far away
The sun breaks through
I won't wake you, no i won't make a sound
I'll just lie here and watch you a while

Just look at your face
It's so still now
Very soon now it'll greet the day new

Your eyes like the sky
How I love you
is there something I can do for you
After all that you've done for me?

Cos when I fall you make me stand
And when I'm cold you take my hand
And when I die you sing my song
And when I rain your sun shines on

Just look at you now
As you lie there I wonder why
I've never seen you before

I've known you so long
But when I see you
It's like I've seen you
For the first time once more
Hey just look at you now

Cos when I fall you make me stand
And when I'm cold you take my hand
And when I die you sing my song
And when I rain your sun shines on

Just look at you now
Wanna hold you
When I think of the love that we make

The day bids hello
And your eyes move
And like one with the sun you awake
I pretend that I'm just waking too



Your spirit is within me

Your spirit is within me
I feel you when I breathe
Wherever I go you go with me
I'll take you when I leave

You open up before me
A rose against my cheek
You give me the breath of life
The voice I use to speak

I'll paint you with the brightest warmth
You lift me to heights
Your hot tears douse my burning heart
Your laughter lights my lights

The angel that's within you
Reaches out and touches me
Her lips against my eyelids
Giving me to see

The angel that's within you
Reaches out and touches me
The song she sings
The gift she brings lay down in front of me

The angel that's within you
Takes me by the hand
And leads me to a crystal promised land

Your spirit is within me
I feel you when I breathe
Wherever I go you go with me
I'll take you when I leave

You open up before me
A rose against my cheek
You give me the breath of life
The voice I use to speak
