Pull away so many times...

Herbert James Draper: The Kelpie

Waitin for somethin
That is never coming
So I guess I’ll be on my way
I know it’s over
we could never make it
so I guess I’ll just pull away.

Girl you been cheatin
and you been mistreatin
but I’m doin the best I can
all your confusion
and my disillusion
tell me when is a man a man?

Ooh, I couldn’t live without you
ooh, ooh I’d like to try
so many times
I’ve heard your hundred stories
so many times
I’ve heard you say goodbye.

I tried to hold you
remember I told you
that I know all about your lies
now that you’re goin
your vanity’s showin
I can see it all in your eyes.

Ooh, I couldn’t live without you
ooh, ooh I’d like to try
so many times
I’ve heard your hundred stories
so many times
I’ve heard you say goodbye.

Sittin on a rock
lookin out at the river
thinkin bout the boat
that’s takin you today
gonna take a while but
soon you’ll be a leavin
hope it’s not a streamer
but it’s pullin away.

Watchin all the waves
come rushin up behind you
kinda like an army
on surprise attack
you were always sayin
that you didn’t need me
I hope you really mean it
cause you’re never comin back.

Once upon a time
when you were just a baby
mama used to take you
to a friend of mine
you were always happy
playin with his cannon
then you came to me
and started wastin my time.

I remember when
you said you were a lover
that was just about
a year ago today
all you ever knew
was teasin and a cheatin
all you ever knew
was pullin away.

Waitin for somethin
That is never coming
So I guess I’ll be on my way
I know it’s over
we could never make it
so I guess I’ll just pull away.

Little chalk blue

Boris Vallejo: Bulle


There's no one here that feels no pain
deep inside we're all the same
and when the light begins to end
we meet a friend

Some people symbolize
the hope and fears beyond our eyes
and now you shine so clear and true
believe in you

Fly on, little chalk blue
fly on, I'm following you
and everybody in the world
is following too
fly on

When you're looked behind a door
you need your freedom there much more
and by your wings we'll learn to see
you hold the key

Fly on, little chalk blue
fly on, I'm following you
and everybody in the world
is following too
following you
fly on

Dream on!


Every time when I look in the mirror
All these lines on my face getting clearer
The past is gone
It went by, like dusk to dawn
Isn't that the way
Everybody's got the dues in life to pay

I know nobody knows
Where it comes and where it goes
I know it's everybody sin
You got to lose to know how to win

Half my life
Is books written pages
Live and learn from fools and
From sages
You know it's true, oh
All these things you do come back to you

Sing with me, sing for the years
Sing for the laughter, sing for the tears
Sing with me, just for today
Maybe tomorrow, the good lord will take you away

Yeah, sing with me, sing for the year
Sing for the laughter, sing for the tear
Sing with me, just for today
Maybe tomorrow, the good Lord will take you away

Dream on
Dream on
Dream on
Dream until your dreams come true
Dream on
Dream on
Dream on
Dream until your dreams come true
Dream on
Dream on
Dream on
Dream on
Dream on
Dream on
Dream on

Sing with me, sing for the year
Sing for the laughter, sing for the tear
Sing with me, just for today
Maybe tomorrow, the good Lord will take you away
Sing with me, sing for the year
Sing for the laughter, sing for the tear
Sing with me, just for today
Maybe tomorrow, the good Lord will take you away.

The price you pay...

Edmund Blair Leighton: Duty

I know you're all alone tonight
And I hear your cries
From the world that lies
Beyond these lives
You've got dreams inside
They cut
I know
Cut so deep but you never show
That's the price you pay
That's the price you pay

Is your soul on the line my dear
As you take your bows
To a silent crowd
That never hears
Close your eyes for now
And leave your rage
Take my hand and walk the stage

That's the price you pay
That's the price you pay
That's the price you pay
That's the price you pay

There's no need to worry
Cause you have tomorrows
Another phase of life has begun
Am I getting through to you?

Can your mind reach beyond tonight
I believe your love for life
Will never die
So my child you ask
What does this mean
Cut the chains and chase the dream

That's the price you pay
That's the price you pay
That's the price you pay
That's the price you pay
Ooh yeah
That's the price you pay
When you come here to play

Hold on!

Herbert James Draper: Ariadne

Look at me, see the love that you're missing 
Can't you see that I'll always be there 
You can't run you can't hide from the feeling tonight 
Damage done. I guess love isn't fair. 
Sometimes I wonder who you are 
So close, but we've gone too far. 

How long can I hold on till you say good-bye baby 
You're gone and it's so wrong and now my heart cries for you girl. 

Lonely days, fill my nights with such sorrow 
Shades of grey, turn into blue tomorrows. 
Sometimes I wonder where you are 
So close, but your eyes are so far.

How long can I hold on till you say good-bye baby 
You're gone and I can't go on and now my heart cries for you girl.

How long can I hold on till you say good-bye baby 
You're gone and it's so wrong and now my heart cries for you girl.

The ship of fools


We bring you fantasy
We bring you pain
It's your one great chance for a miracle
Or we will disappear
Never to be seen again

We bring you beautiful
We teach you sin
We can give you a piece of the universe
Or we will disappear
Never to return again
