Rumor in the field tonight

The locusts have no king.

POCKETFUL OF ANSWERS


She’s got a pocketful of answers from a friend

He’s not the one man who will love her til the end

I’m not saying that "I love you" anymore

It doesn’t matter

It doesn’t matter anymore

I sat alone and disconsolate in the hall

That’s that

Summer quickly turning into fall

It doesn’t matter

It doesn’t matter

It doesn’t matter anymore

She’s got a pocketful of answers from a friend

Cold Tea (2)

Cold tea
No sympathy
Sad voice preserved
Singing to my solitude again
I always understood
I know
And we all lay down forever alone
Beside you
As the curtain dust flies
And you all lay down forever alone
Beside me
We know

Flicker

And gone



C Davis words and music
January 1994

This is actually a bit of an answer song to Janis Ian's remarkable "Tea and Sympathy"

Telegraph Whispers


The telegraph whispers
In the wind
Whistles past the highway
On my way to come undone
One with the sun

Rain still falls
A dream still calls me
Awake
And the telegraph whispers a past
Passed which I stand
Alone but not lonely
In the sun

C Davis January 13, 1991

DYSFUNCTIONAl

Captured in your eyes I ride the waves into your being here with me
You brush against my shore and leave me wanting more
Satisfied with less
I guess
I take your desire into my being
Here with me
Leave you wanting more
Accepting less
I guess
Dysfunctional


C Davis words and music copyright November 1994

D I C H O T O M Y

Life is chance and chance is all we have……

Wounded hearts in harmony
Life is all dichotomy
Desire hurtling headlong into fear
I want you here

Surrounded by the spells we break
Sometimes it seems a big mistake
Whisper in my ear
I want you near
I want you here

Desperate for the remedy
In bodies lying restlessly
Wounded bitter fear
I want you here
I want you near
Whisper in my ear
I want you here

WITHDREW A SMILE

With no love to offer she came in cracked and torn
I offered her shelter
She kept my body warm

Her pain was like winter
She was lost to her fog
I send her packing
I feel just like a dog

I withdrew a smile
Wrote you this song
Had to sigh and decide to carry on

We started with nothing and nothing remains
Nothing to borrow
Divide or explain

I’m wishing you well through your roaming and pain
I’m sorry that these arms won’t hold you again

I withdrew a smile
Wrote you this song
Had to sigh and decide to carry on
