Abby

Written By: Mark Woodcock

Abby
(Lyrics & Music written by Mark Woodcock)

Hey, hey, Abby! Listen up....
I stumbled upon this song thinking about you
It's just to say thank you, I love you and more
In those times when I'm all, but confused

When my heart is sore and you love me more

Hey, Abby! Look up!
Hey, Abby! It's our moon
Hey, Abby! Your love is my truth
With our memories upon her face

Sometimes when my heart and soul give up
I still feel safe and warm inside
'Cause you are all I need; all I need to see
In the darkest of darkest nights

When your heart is sore and I love you more

Hey, Abby! Look up!
Hey, Abby! It's our moon
Hey, Abby! Your love is my truth
With our memories upon her face

Hey, Abby! Look up!
Hey, Abby! It's our moon
Hey, Abby! Your love is my truth
With our memories upon her face

With my memories upon your face

Love is not love (without you)

Written By: Mark Woodcock


Love is not love (without you)
(Lyrics and Music by Mark Woodcock)

Remember the times...remember the time...remember when...
When the sea and your magic anchored my soul to your eyes?

You took me under your spell and I think I took it quite well...
Every time I turn, you stand right beside me,
And when it's my turn, I'll say it quite simply

Chorus:

Love is not love
Love is not love
Without you
Without you

Remember the times...remember the time...remember when
When we broke into pieces and we kissed them together again?

You took me under your spell and I think I took it quite well...
Every time I turn, you stand right beside me,
And when it's my turn, I'll say it quite simply

(Chorus)

When the sea and your magic anchored my soul to your eyes,
We broke into pieces and we kissed them together again.

(Chorus) x 2

Let's wait and dance

Let's Wait & Dance
(Lyrics and Music by Mark Woodcock)

Mmm...never living, counting the hours
The sun's come undone and the moon's come on top
Mmm...never loving, chasing the hour
Let the traffic through, and let the children loose

Chorus:

What else have we got to do
Than wait for the day to come?

What else have we got to do
Than wait for the day to come?

But until it comes...let's wait and dance!

Mmm...always passing, passing nothing but time
Dance, dance, dancing, dance, dancing around
Mmm...always singing 'til the music's out
Clap our hands and tap our feet 'til the candles burn out

(Chorus)

Never ever think of coming home with the fear of being alone
Holding on to altitude, roaming down the avenue

(Chorus)

Let's wait and dance
Let's wait and dance
Let's wait and dance
Let's wait and dance...

Abby

Verse 1
Hey, hey, Abby! Listen up....

It's just to say thank you, I love you and more
In those times when I'm all, but confused

Never move

Written By: Mark Woodcock

Never move

Verse 1
Wear my love and never move,
Let me swing between your eyes, and never move

Count the words that move in you,
Embrace the joy, it’s your joy, from mine to you

Chorus
Never move
Until you've found enough
Never move
Until you've found love

Verse 2
Breathe one last time and close your eyes,
Be the same, play the game, of my surprise

Lock this hour in your secret,
Hide my heart, which you improve, and never move

Chorus
Never move
Until you've found enough
Never move
Until you've found love

Verse 3
You’re the will I’m driven by,
My sacrifice so you live twice, and never die

When my soul will float away,
Kiss the cross on my grave, I’ll never move

Rest on me

Written By: Mark Woodcock

Rest on me

Ribbon dreams unravelling time
As you wake ghostly by my side
Your silhouette is humming on
The whispers you hid inside

Confide in me, outlive the morning,
Outlive the day you never saw
With a broom to sweep away regret
When the sun shines through
And the trash has gone to war
Let their wrath be nothing else
And our respect their rebels

All the love I have for you
Executed against the wall
Shoot them down
And shoot away our troubles

Tonight, rest on me.
Tonight, rest on me.
On my pillow where free spirits rest
Now swept clean of all regret
As we watch the trash that's gone to war

Tonight, rest on me.
Tonight, rest on me.
On my mind, on my sore heart
On the pillow where we think apart
Together in the corner of the wall

Rest on me and let me be
All that you want, all I can be
When the day shines through
And the trash has gone to war
With a broken will
With the rest in vulgar quests
And we're forgetting to forget our troubles

Tonight, rest on me.
Tonight, rest on me.
When the darkness has curtained up
And the dawn has spoken for itself
Where the streets are calling for the rebels
When the darkness has curtained up
And the dawn has spoken for itself
Shoot down and shoot away our troubles

Tonight, rest on me.
Tonight, rest on me.
Tonight, rest on me.
Rest on me, rest on me.
On me.

Back to you

Written By: Mark Woodcock

Back to you

Anchor my soul in my sea-shaken house,
Pounding the walls as my blood turns to wax,
Bridging my crew to the air that you breathe.

A flame without you is an eye without light,
It can’t burn alone when the moon is shy
…in the darkest night.

Seahorses dancing the eve of unrest,
My guiding stars in a starless pest,
As I anxiously muse hand fed by time
…in the darkest light.

The sun on the north side is biting cold,
It’s chipping my bones and my thoughts into dust
Answering me in a voiceless tone the safe way back home.

How do I sail, how can I sail back to you...back to you...
When the storms are willing, the spark is weak?
Your lighthouse is melting in a homeless coast.

How do I sail? How do I sail back to you?

Anchor my soul in my sea-shaken house,
My ship floats above an abyssal tear,
Colliding horizons, cheating the seasons, from sphere to sphere.

How do I sail, how can I sail back to you...back to you...
When my shoulders are blind, stiffened with pain
And remorse is ahead, resting on hope, in a crimson tide?

How do I sail? How do I sail back to you?

Prayer

Written By: Mark Woodcock

Prayer

Whispered in a broken voice
This prayer's for you not for the Lord
Seize this moment make it yours
In this black Jesus time of year

He looks upon your beauteous soul
From bloodshot skies of raging hordes
The angels stabbed and the demons grinned
Waiting for the close of day

Believe in me, conceiving me
Every time you hear these words
Giving birth to a new world

Believe in me, conceiving me
There's a prayer every day
When every night's for you

Oh, my Lord, she fell from Grace
Why did you give me human eyes?
My blinding dreams are asking me:
Will you ever stop praying tonight?
Will you ever stop praying tonight?

Believe in me, conceiving me
Every time you hear these words
Giving birth to a new world

Holy whine you did your best
In the kingdom of my sleep
Where I kissed a golly host
Did I ever stop praying tonight?
Will I ever stop praying tonight?

Talking tears of silent choice
Patient lust in a moonless fraud
A Judas moment make it yours
In this black Jesus time of year

Oh, my Lord, she fell from Grace
In the kingdom of my sleep
Faith's illusion when I'll wake
Will I ever stop praying tonight?
Will I ever stop praying tonight?

Oh, answer me, answer me
Will I ever stop praying tonight?
Will I ever stop praying tonight?

Break Away

Written By: Mark Woodcock

Break Away

Verse 1
If I tell you to break away, would you know what to do?
Are you really that comfortable, there's nothing you'd do?
You're breathing so happily the air that you breathe
Watching so carefully the chaos you see.

Chorus
Break away from the hurt of this world
Break away from the chains of my mind
Break away from the roots of our joy
Break away from the loss that you've found

Verse 2
Life is what's happening whilst you make other plans
Freedom is vanishing in the lines of your hands
Bring out your remedy that will cure your own death
The chartered melody that you keep in your head

Chorus
Break away from monochrome thoughts
Break away from all that you want
Break away from the opium you sought
Break away from the colours you hunt

Break away from the hate you abuse
Break away from the life you intrude
Break away from the greed you amuse
Break away from the greed you include
