Precious Love

words/music © matt ralph 2006 Like a dancer in the sky, She's there and then she's gone, Like a diamond in the river, That shines amongst the stones, Like a flower in the sun, That reaches for the light, And it'll follow it where ever, It cuts across the sky, Could I, Could I take you higher, Could I, Cause I can't see it end like this, Watching our love, Our precious love slip away, Knowing that I learnt my lesson too late, Like the wind beneath a feather, That dances...

Running Back

[audio mp3="http://mattralph.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/01/pav-running-back-17_3.mp3"][/audio] words/music © matt ralph 2000 I jump towards you in the darkness, I call out to you standing naked, I long to hold you clutching forwards, I know you'll catch me falling backwards, I built my hopes and plans around you, I sold my friends so I could see you, I count the hours until I'm near you, In everything I see, I see you, I think of you at home in bed, And who you've got there now instead, And each time I hear...

Child

Sad World

[audio mp3="http://mattralph.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/08/sad-sad-world.mp3"][/audio] words/music © matt ralph 2000 There's people around you but you don't want to see them, They're interfering with a new found lifestyle, Not eating or drinking, Surrounded by blank walls, Nobody's talking cause, Nobody's listening, Just sit back and watch all your close friends, Watching them kill themselves, Nothing that you can do to protect them, They don't want to help themselves, And It's a sad sad world if nobody cares about how you're going to be, When you're history, You want to do something...

Chrissy’s Fire

Chrissy's Fire Chrissy's Fire words/music © matt ralph 2001 You lit by firelight, You paint your mermaids in colours of blue and green, You sat upon your knees, Mingus was close by, Curled up and fast asleep, You sat in silence, You sat complete, You tend the fire, I feel the heat, Chrissy your fire burns all through the night, Your fire's my hearts, Sweet breath of life, I see it dancing in your eyes, We watch the setting sun, You wake at sunrise, Your lips are sugary sweet, No warming up just...
