Lyrics

Home Alone 4
Gently my eyelids close, I'd rather be good than clever
I'd rather have all facts wrong than no reply whatever..
I learned before I could speak with those "being patient eyes"
When God created my kind. But he forgot to tell me why
So gently my eyelids close..
All alone, at home I sit - I'm very tired of it
Burn the midnight oil or pour it on my salad
I lost the thread I thought I had...

Led by hearts & ears - memory lagging behind
No shame being a fool, I got many things on my mind
Pick up the phone on first riiiing - I never get out anymore..
There's nowhere to go, but back and there's quicksand outside my door
So gently my eyelids close
All alone, at home I sit - I'm very tired of it
Burn the midnight oil or pour it on my salad
I lost the thread I thought I had.. I lost it - I lost it. Yeah!
Is that a shadow - or a hole in the floor?
And what's that noise outside my door??
Home alone. On my own.. And all alone...
Favours (non album track)
I couldn't trust me to the corner
Close my eyes and forgetting where I'm at
I know I haven't lost my mind
So I smile, yeah my patience drives me mad
Like the circus leaves a circle on the grass
Got to move on and let it pass
I won't let it get me down
But, something moves across the room as slow as winter

Favours for the ungrateful; yeah..
Sometimes pleased, never satisfied
Favours for the ungrateful
Unqualified and hateful
Favours for the unwilling
And all the time revealing
How truthful I can get..
As close to what I really meant
Favours for the ungrateful

I hope I haven't lost my mind
But, tomorrow is a hammer swinging at my head
I won't let that get me down
It's apologies unspoken with regret

I've been stuck on a pin
Had my wings pulled off
Down niagara in a barrel
- Pride's not hard to swallow
All you do is chew
When Love plans for tomorrow
Loneliness dreams of yesterday

Favours for the...
