Ain’t it kinda funny?
How you always fall in love
With someone you don’t know
Picasso called it an obsession
Akin to beauty purifying the air
So I inhale your face
The first time I saw you there

So fly away my lovely
Let time have its dirty way with me
Fly back to the man
That should’ve been me

Then I want to explore every molecule
Every strand of your hair
Each syllable to your soul
I do that within seconds
It’s like you melted inside me
The first time I saw you there

So fly away my lovely
Let time have its dirty way with me
Fly back to the man
That should’ve been me

I’m happy to let you go this time
Give my senses time to repair
The oxygen in my brain all giddy
But I can’t wash off your perfume
It slow dances into my pores
And forms the helix of my heart
The first time I saw you there

So fly away my lovely
Fly away
Fly away
Let time have its dirty way with me
Fly back to the man
That should’ve been me

So fly away my lovely
Fly away
Fly away
Let time have its dirty way with me
Fly back to the man
That should’ve been me

FLY AWAY

It’s funny how we tell ourselves
Not to fall in love
It’s gonna hurt just like the last one
The iron fist in a velvet glove

But this one will be different
I know this for sure
When rhyme, reason and logic
Turns and walks out the door

But this one will be different
I know this to be sure
It’s impossible to give away nothing
Your heart already gave it all

Oh maybe I found you
A lifetime too late
Decades of heart ache
Or a gentle kiss of fate

But this one will be different
I know this to be sure
It’s impossible to give away nothing
Your heart already gave it all

These walls are meant to last a lifetime
Each sloppy brick was made by hand
And tears set in concrete
I don’t expect you to understand

So next time that I hold you
And squeeze you til my last breath
Just remember, I do love you
In a shell, in a man that has nothing left

But this one will be different
I know this to be sure
It’s impossible to give away nothing
Your heart it already gave it all

GAVE IT ALL

I’m gonna leave it all behind babe
And that includes you
Just put you down for a little while
On top of the hurt pile

I’m gonna leave you for while babe
Take my love as company
Somewhere safe, somewhere warm
And ride out this emotional storm

On top of the hurt pile
It’s where I do my best work
Hurting myself in foolish denial
Even Verlaine would call me a jerk

I’m gonna put you down for a while babe
And all the other girls in the stack
I’m trying to be the best rake I can
What do you say, the strong reliable man

On top of the hurt pile
It’s where I do my best work
Hurting myself in foolish denial
Even Verlaine would call me a jerk

I gotta put you down babe
Let you brush up on life
The other lovers can fill in the strokes
The ones you put down last time we spoke

On top of the hurt pile
It’s where I do my best work
Hurting myself in foolish denial
Even Verlaine would call me a jerk

Repeat

HURT PILE

I felt you look right through me
Michael, is that really you?
A little condescending
But I guess that’s what you do

I knew you were embarrassed
The man, the life she once knew
With no hint of emotion
That botox really defines you

You’re supposed to break the heart
Not the man

I’ve started eating again
But haven’t looked in a mirror
Perhaps a little fxxxin’ wasted
Well nough about me, what about you?

Your face forever flawless
But older than the boy next to you
As long as he makes you cum
Why the fxxx did I fall for you?

You’re supposed to break the heart
Not the man

I see your wearing glasses now
I’ve long put down the book on you
I prefer the jolly words of Chaucer
Than deal with the thought of you

I’m so happy your art is selling
I did all that for you
Let me buy you a fresh canvas
I don’t need anything from you

You’re supposed to break the heart
Not the man

We’ll catch up sometime
So glad to see you Michael
Everyone else just calls me Mike
I was never that into you

Did I tell you I’m eating again?
As I swallow the last of my pride
Gosh he looked terrible
Of course, but no reflection of you

You’re supposed to break the heart
Not the man
Not the man

NOT THE MAN

Another night of howling madness
Trapped between two lovers sheets
One in the steamy presence
The other a mental treat

I sit done and wait for your scream
The lust of old disappeared
The new one still wears perfume
And tells me what I need to hear

Love it never finds me
A foolish heart torn in space
Between the lover that I wanted
And the angel in my face

Take me away from this village of dogs
The bark, bellow and brawl
The promise and the beauty
As I search for my next fall

Love it never finds me
A foolish heart torn in space
Between the lover that I wanted
And the angel in my face

Tonight there is no lover
But I read between the sheets
Space is only distance
A heart impossible to reach

Love it never finds me
A foolish heart torn in space
Between the lover that I wanted
And the angel in my face

THE FALL

First time I saw you
I knew an angel drew your face
Now you stand before me
Tears falling through the lace

You never saw me in the light
Too many demons too many fights
I always held you too tight
Thinking love can make it right

It could’ve been so simple
Just let each other go
I held you, it felt like forever
But forever seems a long time ago

You never saw me in the light
Too many demons too many fights
I always held you too tight
Thinking love can make it right

Loving you was easy
I just started too late
It wasn’t til I found you
You kept coming home too late

You never saw me in the light
Too many demons too many fights
I always held you too tight
Thinking love can make it right

You curl in my arms like an angel
Knowing you found a new playmate
So tonight, and every night I’ll pray
To once again, hear that rickety gate

You never saw me in the light
Too many demons too many fights
I always held you too tight
Thinking love can make it right

You never saw me in the light
But your love made it right

TOO LATE

It was never about the want
You’re the passion in Picasso’s touch
A cure for your high gloss pain
I just don’t think you remember that much

I’m the guy who breaks the fall
But I feel around and you’re not there
This time I just keep on falling
Into the depths of my despair

Oh it’s not that I don’t want you
You always put my emotions on show
And then we always go back
To the lovers you used to know

I couldn’t help falling
The powders all but dissolved
You blew me out like a Roman candle
A heart degree with no resolve

They all said you were a lay down misère
Stranded partners and high stake affairs
A temptress bleeding in the snow
Attach to those who don’t care

Oh it’s not that I don’t love you baby
Love parades as your fashion show
And then we always go back
To the lovers that you barely know

I’m the guy that breaks the fall
But I feel around and you’re not there
This time I keep on falling
It can only be warm with you down there

It’s not that I don’t want you
But you’ll love me more when I go
‘Cause you always go back
To the lovers you already know

WHEN I GO

The rich fragrance of Catalan
And the sweet sincerity of Pernod
As the young waiter waltzes to our table
Late, into an evening of unknown

You’ve done this before
His lusty eyes won’t put her down
She deflects to the small canvas above them
His umber skin gently creases to a frown

The sunflowers, they are so bold
Si, he was a good friend of mine
Degas, Monet they’ve all dined here
But never have the sunflowers more reason to shine

That’s when he had her
Her cheeks spoke of roses, as he caressed her hand
Mon Cherie, you’re not like the others
I want you to make me a better man

Somehow
I know
My heart
Would be safe in your care

The waiter quickly douses the flames
As the garlic, basil and red wine brews
His eyes had already undressed her
I assure you, there is no other muse

The mood suddenly giddy
You must come back to the studio
This is all but you think of me
Mademoiselle, it is you that I all but think

A master stroke of seduction
She felt weakened at the thought
The hands of a genius caressing her
Into a frenzied primal tort

I want you to make me a better man
That’s all he had to say
She already knew she loved him
If only for one night and day

Somehow
I knew
My heart would bleed
When the paint dried
And you’re not there
