I WANT LOVE

I want to be loved

I want to be held

I want to be assured

By feelings I can’t spell

I want to have

Feelings there are no words for

I want love
I want love

To knock on my door

I want to see

The smile in your heart

I want to see

Your halo as big

As the brightest rainbow

And that’s what I want to give

Give you my love
I want love

As high as the mountains

I want love

As wide as the sky

I want love

As deep as the ocean

I want love
I want words

There are no words for

I want feelings

There are no words for

Only the word

The word of love

I want love
I want to look

And only find love

I want to see

And see only love

I want to feel only love

When I just think of you

I want love
I want love

As high as the mountains

I want love

As wide as the sky

I want love

As deep as the ocean

I want love
I want love

Like the love

I have for you

I want to be loved

I want to be loved

I want love

VAMPIRES

I was standing at the gateI was working very late

When up walked a fate

Sold at a very expensive rate
She had long blonde hair

And silky soft skin you could say was fair

Sparkled dress with a chest and shoulders too bare

Offered up a chance to see a demons lair
She broke me down

Broke me down

Rode my back

Rode my back

Left a scar

When she took me back

Took me for everything

Left a mark

Vamp

Vamp

Vamp
I was waiting for the morning sitting at the bar

When she walked up in a bright red dress and told me to get in the car

She promised me she wouldn’t take me very far

As she kissed my lips, and then fed them with a very expensive cigar
She took me back to her place

I believed her pretty face

As she cried and screamed out into space

Morning came, she was gone without a trace
She broke me down

Broke me down

Broke my back

Broke my back

Left a scar

When she gave me the sack

Took me for everything

Left a mark

Vamp

Vamp

Vamp
She took me down

Broke me down

Rode my back

Broke my back

Left a scar

When she took my blood

Left me nothing

But a mark

The mark of a Vamp

The mark of the Vamp

A Vamp

Vamp
I saw her years later with another man

The drunken look in his eyes was as large as a frying pan

I didn’t say anything, didn’t tell him it’d be better off if he ran

Cause maybe once you’re bitten, you’re a lover, and you’re a fan.
She took me down

Took me down

Sucked my blood

Took my blood

Left that scar

When she took my blood

Took me for everything

Left the mark

Of a Vamp

Left the mark

Of The Vamp

I love that Vamp

I love that Vamp

Now I’m one too.

I’m one too.

SHE DON’T CARE

She comes home late from work and plays my songsShe thinks I know everything

You can see it in her eyes
She knows my politics

My religion is tattooed on my arm

And she knows all I believe in is love

And for her that’s good enough
On a good day she looks at least twenty one

But she’s at least forty with a broken heart

She fucks me till I can’t take anymore

And I own her bed and that’s what she wants
We drink wine and kiss till the sun comes up

Her eyes only see me and that’s fine

I love her as wide as the universe

And I have no money cause if I did I’d give it all away
She loves me

Silly girl

I got nothing

Stupid girl

And she don’t care
We sit in diners and plot

What we’d like to do

I write her love notes on napkins

And she just smiles

I make goofy faces

And she just laughs
I can’t do anything

To sway her heart away

I can’t offer her anything

And she’s okay

As long as it’s just my heart

She doesn’t want anything but me
She loves me

Silly girl

I got nothing

Stupid girl

And she don’t care
She loves me

Silly girl

I got nothing

Stupid girl

And she don’t care
I sing about giving her the moon

She says I make her heart swoon

She knows I can’t, and she don’t care

She just wants my loyalty

She just wants me to want her too
She loves me

Silly girl

I got nothing

Stupid girl

And she don’t care
She loves me

Silly girl

I got nothing

Stupid girl

And she don’t care

FOOTSTEPS

I see thingsThat aren’t there

The only spirits that I see

Are the ones of mine

That are crushed

And the only ones I hear

Are the ones that are hushed
I can still see her footsteps

That lead out

And away

From my house, 

My heart,

And my life,

What on earth could I say

To change the end of my day?
Someone please show me

Where all the love goes

I want to see

When all the love grows

I want to know

What all the love knows
All I see is footsteps
I feel things

That bring so much happiness

And it leads to pain

I bet it all on her

And lost the hand

And now I watch the waves

Wash away our footsteps in the sand
I can still see the footsteps

That lead out

And away

From my eyes, 

My love,

And my world,

What on earth could I ever say

To change my rainy days?
Someone please show me

Where all my love goes

I want to see

When all my love flows

And I want to know

What all 

My love knows
All I see is footsteps
All I see

Is the footsteps

Of you walking away
You walk away

You walk away

When love is not enough
You run away

You run away

When real love is too damn much
And all I see

Is the footsteps

That you left
And my love

That lies next to your footsteps

It’s just better

That I leave it that way
And all I have left

Is the footsteps

That you left
I can still see her footsteps

That lead out

And away

From my happiness, 

My joy,

And my pain,

What on earth can I say

To make this a better day?
Someone please show me

Where all this love goes

I want to see

When all my love grows

I want to know

What all of my love knows
All I see is the footsteps

Of your spirit

All I still see

Is your footsteps

All I see is the footsteps

All I see

Is footsteps
