Lyrics

Mortal Man

Written By: David Vincent

Here comes the devil, walking so cool.
A body so beautiful, her words so cruel.
She has eyes that haunt you.
A bewitching stare.
Teasing my tongue.
The smell of lust in the air.

Chorus
Caught in a fantasy, lost in a maze.
Looking for reality from this dreamy daze.
Surrounded by images, I couldn’t understand.
Why pick me?
I’m just a mortal man.

Taken for a ride. A dream that was so real.
Captured by her beauty and the numbness that I feel.
She offered me glory and the chance to be a man.
She led me into mystery, then let go of my hand.

(Chorus)

Lost without anything to show me the way.
No key to escape from this prison today.
A gypsy queen, she stole my heart.
Ripped it away, and then tore it apart.

(Chorus)

On my knees praying
With my head in the sand.
Why pick me?
I’m just a mortal man.

For crying out loud
Could you help me stand?
Why pick me?
I’m just a mortal man.

Hold Me Close

Written By: David Vincent

A simple word is all that I need.
A feeling of love that in time I’ll receive.
Quiet moments with which I reflect.
I look at my life and the ones I neglect.

Chorus
So hold me close and be with me tonight.
Hold me close but don’t hold me too tight.
For these are our memories and precious to us.
Always so near but so hard to touch.

A feeling of loss and sense of shame.
We hide away our problems just to play the game.
In time they will haunt us and call to be heard.
We must all answer if we’re to ever learn.

(Chorus)

Open up your heart and what do you see?
It was once so strong, now full of misery.
If we are ever going to be free.
One must care for the things precious to thee.

(Chorus)

Light a Candle

Written By: David Vincent

I light a candle.
Turn the night so bright.
Watch the flickering flame,
It’s such an eerie sight.
Bring out a spoon.
Let the heat work away.
Have a shiver or two.
Wait for the final display.

Chorus
I was drawn by the sight I saw.
I thought it was right, now I beg for more.
Never be caught in this stinging web.
Say no to drugs, embrace a life instead.

The pain is strong.
The needle digs deep.
Feel the lift.
As the body weeps.
Let it go….it’s okay.
Through the darkness you’ll find a way.

(Chorus)

Twist a bottle,
Blow away the dust.
These are our nightmares,
They belong to us.
You invade your dreams,
In a hope of despair.
Fight away the chill,
Pretend it’s not even there.

(Chorus)
