Lucy, don't you know You're only made of snow. I can't find joy in anything. I've lost you now for here hits the Spring. I try to ease my pain Searching for a love letter in the rain. Lucy, don't you know You're only made of snow. How and I cry and pine 'Cuz you're never here in the Summertime. I lay on the grass Wondering which cloud could be your home. Lucy, don't you know You're only made of snow. How I moan and grieve As i shuffle my feet through the Autumn leaves. I wade across the streams Wondering if you'll roll by and kiss my feet. Lucy, don't you know You're only made of snow. I couldn't feel more fine Now you're back with me for the Winter time. No-one knows your charms - They all think you're cold, but I know you're warm. I always knew that you were with me From the moisture in my breath to the edges of the sea.

I've been noticing you for a while Since that time I broke your leg In karate class - I really kicked your ass. And I've been noticing your for a year, Since we became good friends, my dear, Saw you stony faced with fear When all the boys and Girls approach your ears with proclamations Some so sweet, but you still smack them away. Listen here, Jenny, Oh, you really think you know me, But you have no idea the people I have lost - Lost to lies And infidelities, Lost to paranoia and pleurisy, Lost to my gullibility If I have to mourn once more then I will surely break. There's something I have to say You don't have to say a word Just friends is not enough I already heard it all from Kevin, Don't you know he tells me everything? Jonny, won't you let me in? Jenny, won't you go away? I have eyes for no-one else That's what my ex-wife said And, now she's shacked up with some floozy in Dakota You've got to take a chance in life Don't need more reasons to lament You could get hit by a bus I'd prefer that to this argument I've been there, done that, I just cannot go through that again. Jonny, won't you let me in? Jenny, won't you go away? I'll be the greatest love of your life He's already dead And lives in every beat and breath and bite and kiss In every sip and stroke In every heart In every heart.... In every heart exploding wish Is there nothing I can say? There is nothing you can say. Jonny, why did you leave us Getting hit by a bus, like I warned you. Now ours forever will be the love That never had a chance.

Slow goes the boat, The scratching of bone on paddle, The terror as the vessel wobbles Above the lake of limbo. Slow goes the boat To the place that's both Hell and Heaven, To the same old caverns She tired of long ago. Slow goes the boat, The scratching of bone on paddle. A journey made so many times Even Death has forgotten how to cry.

You are a wonder - Aware and afraid. You put on such a brave face But I can see You're just holding together With thin threads of hope. Still - they break easily. Let's go for a walk And lay on the grass For the whole of the Autumn 'Till we're covered by leaves, Let ourselves rot away, Sink into the Earth - Go into her arms And breathe.

Nice to meet you in this sweaty stew. Hey, gorgeous eyes that are lusting to(o) Come back to mine, Let's spend some time, I got a few ideas in mind. Bring out the ropes and gags and cuffs, Don't be afraid if you'll mess it up. At least we'll have fun Stumbling upon The best ways to make each other come. Let's fool around and destroy the bed Don't hold your noise no matter what they said. Let's break and bend, Let's invite a friend, Let's voice our lusts and then attend to them. Let's go on the lake where the water's soft. A champagne picnic then I'll suck you off In the sunshine, Let's spend some time, I got a few ideas in mind. Let's go outside where it's rainy and warm, Let's fuck loving and hard during the thunderstorm, Let's blow each other's minds, Let's spend some time, I got a few ideas in mind. Lover, I'm cool, yeah, I must insist. But you're leaving soon and it's getting you stressed. But, darling, that's fine, Let's make the most of this time, I got a few ideas in mind.
