Venus Girl (EP)

    Venus Girl

    Who lives in a world like this, transmitting in the emptiness
    when all hope is long gone? You’ve no faith in anyone.

    But she came in the name of love – the one thing there’s so little of;
    Reeled in the hard lines, laid down the good times.

    Venus girl, she fell down to earth from a great height.
    A meteorite in my world explodes in my mind’s eye.

    She never makes  a move in haste. Good things come to he who waits.
    She brings the sunshine, rolls out the good times.

    Venus girl, the brightest of stars in the night sky.
    The soul satellite of my world explodes in my mind’s eye.

    She’s loaded with love but she can’t get enough of the stuff that our dreams are all made of.

    Venus girl, she fell down to earth from a great height.
    A meteorite in my world explodes in my mind’s eye.
    She exploded my mind’s eye. Yes, she exploded my mind’s eye.

    Julia

    A splash of sunlight in a skyscape of grey.
    Temptation took me when you looked my way.
    I don’t believe I’ll be the same again since You, Julia. Since you.

    You wrote “I love you” but they won’t let us be,
    Though in our thought crimes we are almost free.
    I wanted somebody who feels like me. And it’s you, Julia. It’s you.

    Naked as sin my melancholy plunges my face into the slurry
    Everyone knows we’ll get our share of pain.
    Love is the finest gift that we’re given so cherish the feeling of deliverance.
    Everyone knows we’ll get our share of pain.

    A splash of sunlight in a skyscape of grey.
    Temptation took me when you looked my way.
    I don’t believe I’ll be the same again since You, Julia. Since you.

    Madrid

    On the night that I arrived I left my suitcase on the side, jumped the red bus into town
    to hang around on the Gran Via with all the young dudes there on the street that never sleeps.

    In the burning light of day at the door of some cafe the barista said Senor of this you can be sure
    Life will take its toll on a stoner and his soul. It’s for you who Jesus weeps.

    Madrid Madrid

    Three million pairs of eyes leave no place to hide. Somebody’s listening. Someone is watching you.
    Three million pairs of eyes leave no place to hide. Somebody’s watching. Someone is listening to you.

    Though it’s a thousand miles from home I have never walked alone – no escape route from yourself
    or anybody else. Change your name and face but it’s your thoughts you can’t erase

    and your memories, they’re for keeps.

    That'll be the day

    I bless my inner-visions of you; so what if that’s a strange thing to do?
    My heart won’t stop bleeding, always needing. It just keeps leading me on
    Down through the years, beating the way into your life, yeh

    That’ll be the day your open invitation comes my way.
    That’ll be the day when all my inhibitions melt away
    And who is not to say we’ll raise the shallow wreck of yesterday?
    And I will love you if only I knew how.

    I’ve died too many times on this stage by slow hand of impending disgrace.
    The big wheel keeps turning but I’m still learning to wind down on the way home.
    I’m out of the cold, out of the rain and into your arms, well

    That’ll be the day your open invitation comes my way.
    That’ll be the day when all my inhibitions melt away
    And who is not to say we’ll raise the shallow wreck of yesterday?
    And I will love you if only I knew how.

    That’ll be the day. That’ll be the day. That’ll be the day when I will love you if only I knew.
