Lyrics

Sweet Lonely Face

Written By: Rici Rowyn

In a darkness only I see
Salt lake of despair
A quiet only I hear
So slow, too near
Forward flanked by mountains
Too high to cross
With legs so weary
And a soul so lost 
There in the distance
See it circle the night
Too late to run
Too scared for flight
And I start to cry
Though there's nothing to fear
And I start to fall
Though you're standing near

Step into my sad and twisted world
Sweet heavenly face
Sweet lonely face 
Step into my mad and vacant world
When you're ready to tell
When you've broken the spell

Behind bars only I see
Cool iron of despair
A pressure only I feel
So tight, too real
Surrounded by an ocean
Too deep to swim
A body so weary
And a heart too thin 
There in the distance
See it circle the night
Too late to run
Too scared for flight
And I start to cry
Though there's nothing to fear
And I start to fall
Though you're standing near

Step into my sad and twisted world
Sweet heavenly face
Sweet lonely face 
Step into my mad and vacant world
When you're ready to tell
When you've broken the spell

Sweet lonely face
Sweet lonely face

Salamander Swing

Written By: Rici Rowyn

Striped bars mask the view
Wide eyes see right through
Click the shutter
Time stands still
Secret lives set to thrill

The strap slips with a soft caress
Satin shimmers as she drops the dress
Hair tumbles as Nina sings
Off come the Prada for the salamander swing

Swing baby swing
As the shutter clicks
Zoom and focus
As the red dot ticks
Side to side
Around the room
Up and down
Zoom baby zoom

From across the street
Behind four walls
All is seen
All is heard
Prying eyes spread the word

The strap slips with a soft caress
Satin shimmers as she drops the dress
Hair tumbles as Nina sings
Off come the Prada for the salamander swing

Swing baby swing
As the shutter clicks
Zoom and focus
As the red dot ticks
Side to side
Around the room
Up and down
Zoom baby zoom

Zoom baby zoom
Zoom baby zoom

Side to side
Around the room

Up and down
Zoom baby zoom

Zoom baby zoom
Zoom baby zoom

A Mind

Written By: Rici Rowyn

When all else is failing, you're no longer sailing
They tell you you're ailing, the truth hurts
When life darkens your door, you realise the score
You turn to escape but you know it's too late

You find the door locked, the perimeter shocked
You've just about exhausted the cause
They try to mock, for the things that you've lost
A mind set to expire by the clause

You took your chances, ran with the crowd
Fate intervened, you sunk to your knees
You lived for pennies, that never fell
You squandered your chance to succeed

You find the door locked, the perimeter shocked
You've just about exhausted the cause
They try to mock, for the things that you've lost
A mind set to expire by the clause

Your mother smiled the day you were born
Your father bought the cigars
Now they sit, silent witnesses
They peer through the space in the bars

You loaded the gun, instead of turning to run
You cashed the fun, before you'd begun
You gave up the right to your wife and your son
It's a sickness you'll have to endure

You find the door locked, the perimeter shocked
You've just about exhausted the cause
They try to mock, for the things that you've lost
A mind set to expire by the clause
