Track Name: Be Firm
Is it okay if I call you mine?
Just for a time
And I will be just fine
If I know that you know that I'm
Wanting , needing your love
Oh

If I ask of you is it all right
If I ask you to hold me tight
Through a cold, dark night
'Cause there may be a cloudy day in sight
And I need to let you know that I might
Be needing your love
Oh

And what I'm trying to say isn't really new
It's just the things that happen to me
When I'm reminded of you

Like when I hear your name,
Or see a place that you've been
Or see a picture of your grin,
Or pass a house that you've been in
At one time or another.

It sets off something in me I can't explain.
And I can't wait to see you again.
Oh, babe, I love your love
Oh
And what I'm trying to say isn't really new
It's just the things that happen to me
When I'm reminded of you
Track Name: Purple Flower
The same time every year you`d see her standing there
Silhouette in a window frame in the autumn air
The same words she`d whisper if you could pass her by
'Where did he go, why did he die?'
She's looking for the answer in a tombstone.
She`s looking for the answer.

Give me a Purple Flower & I'll sing for you
Give me a Purple Flower & I'll sing for you
i'll wait hours and hours and hours, hours and hours

I'll throw my hair down to you,
my heart down to you,
my arms down to you,
I'll throw my hair down to you
my life down to you
I'll sit perfectly still, perfectly still
I'll wait until....

CHORUS

The same time every year you`d see her standing there
Aboard autumn skies, winds do fly
But she's not to be seen, no, mournful sigh
She found her dream and followed it

You might ask me what was i doing there
You might ask me what do i care
Well I'm looking for that girl
I want to take her home

CHORUS
Track Name: Is It Okay If I Call You Mine?
Is it okay if I call you mine?
Just for a time
And I will be just fine
If I know that you know that I'm

Through a cold, dark night
'Cause there may be a cloudy day in sight
And I need to let you know that I might

Or see a picture of your grin,
Or pass a house that you've been in

Oh, babe, I love your love
Oh

Just one mystery Kingdom
there’s only one who can reign
just a one man woman
Jesu grew my grain

i gave a ring to my love
my burning flame
I would four lips stuck together
just jesu's jewellery remains

Just you Just you Jesu
I'd give it all just to you, my riches my wealth
my heart and my feelings
I'd give to you my health

I’ll leave my green jade
eyes on your dresser
so that whom you take
i will see from there forever
Jesu's fiance revealed
her precious tear
when it fell
when it fell in the palm of his hand
a ring
a diamond ring appeared

He's wearing her ring
but it’s wearing thin
he's wearing her neclace
just as tight as it'll go

Just you Just you Jesu
she had a hold on you
she tightened the noose
I told her to - now we’re both free of you....
Track Name: Can I Catch Fire?
Can I Catch Fire? ©Max Sharam


Has the Fire arrived in town yet?
You haven’t seen him well I cant miss my jet
All I’ve left is my ticket and song
So if you see him – I’ve gone

Our Patterns crossed the Desert like snake tracks in the sand
We entwined for nights – a lifespan
Four years of traveling traced my ideal
I knew it was he when he carried me from my perch on the windowsill

‘My Nightingale Sing’ that’s what he said
When he laid me down on the big feather bed

And he loved me hours, for on, and forever
My desert red lion you’re ever so clever
Can I keep your fire burning with the spark in my eye?
Leave even once without saying goodbye

Can I Catch Fire? Can I Catch Fire?

So I pushed those four years on the trolley to check in (I pushed back the tears)
I’ve gone - so go forget him.
It seemed all we ever said was goodbye
We would meet and we would ponder and we would wonder why

So as I sat in that room for the waiting
Patiently anticipating
I bent down to whisper the word
And he had purchased a ticket to fly with his bird

‘My Nightingale Sing’ that’s what he said
When he laid me down on the big feather bed

I’m yours for as long as you want me he said
Well I’ve been yours since the feather bed.

Can I Catch Fire? Can I Catch Fire?

The desert has sandstorms and whirlwinds and sun and patterns snakes make in the sand when they run. The desert has sandstorms and whirlwinds and sun and patterns snakes make in the sand when they run.

Can I Catch Fire? Can I Catch Fire?

He’s a Fire Sign. Fire Man. Call the Fireman – I’m on Fire!
I’m burning inside.
Track Name: Alice
ALICE ©Max Sharam

Alice in your dolls house
painted flowers in bloom
cartoon corners and sweet delights
rascals and rag dolls and star filled nights
Alice there’s no firewood
monopoly money won’t do
chimneys tower, winter looms
that red-suited gentleman can’t get through
He cant afford to come down
wooden soldiers burn and cut-out clowns

When your ma and pa were together no more
Mr. Golliwog flew the coop
You became mother, you grew up real fast
where is your childhood now where is your past?

Alice’s bridedoll let her veil fall
the contract she signed she tore
She had goldenlocks but she chopped them off
rascals and romeos everyday
she robbed the romeos left nothing to say
locks look nice but they get in the way

Alice read her horrorscope, she led her life
she learned to cope & when her mother died
Alice grew and Alice sang
“It’s all worth it can’t all be bad
It’s all worth it at least I had Alice’

Alice sees her reflection only once in the day
She likes herself, she needs no help
donates her smiles to all the others
She’s still a little girl
but only with her lovers
It’s all worth it can’t all be bad
It’s all worth it at least I had
It’s all worth it Alice
Track Name: Learning To Let Go
Learning to Let Go ©Max Sharam

Spoken: (I want to think you are my side. The world`s work hasn`t begun to be done)

Some people hold on to life so tight that they squeeze the life right out of it
Some people hold on to love so tight that they squeeze the love right out of it

Is it true?
Is it a Catch 22?
Do only the dying know when to let go

Is it you?
Is it the wind whistling through
Do only the dying know?


Some people hold on to life so tight that they squeeze the life right out of it
Some people hold on to love so tight that they squeeze the love right out of it

You know I cried so hard
Cried so hard, cried so hard

You know I tried so hard
Tried so hard, tried so hard

To let you go. To let you go.
I`m learning to let go.

If only good things die young I am dying to find out about it.

Did I love you too much?
Did I love you to death?
I am dying to know?

You know I tried so hard
Tried so hard, tried so hard

To let you go. To let you go.
I`m learning to let go.

Spoken: (Like a mother with a child, like a toddler – running wild, like an infant on a swing – I would cling)

If you were loving me right I wouldn’t hold on so tight.
If you were loving me right I wouldn’t need to learn to let you go.

Cops called it a day the day he got away - gone to the Land of Angels
He stole a car - and he traveled far away for him Sirens sing

He was a boy life was his toy - gone to the Land of Angels
He hijacked my heart and took it apart - just to see what he could see

Were you so blind?
Oh you needed glasses - I opened up my safe for you to see what you see
Oh were you so blind? I would never let you down
You’re the only man to know the kind of loving I need.

Angel, no longer you’re a angel
The whole world wants you I‘ll just love you no longer Angel
Uniformed clowns they want to shoot you down
You’re a jailbird in a frail world Angel no longer you’re no angel

He wasn’t mine I wasted my time gone to the Land of Angels
Devoted to crime and that was a sign to say - stay clear -
Sirens sing

Were you so blind? So blind folded I opened up your cage to set you free
Were you so blind? I would never let pin you down
I’m no good at pinning tails on donkeys

Angel, no longer you’re no angel
The whole world wants you I‘ll just love you no longer Angel
Uniformed clowns they want to shoot you down
You’re a jailbird in a frail world Angel no longer

Angel, no longer you’re no angel
the whole world wants you I‘ll just love you no longer Angel
My innocent frown couldn’t tempt you down
If you descend it will all end

ORCHESTRA AU NATUREL

Rainy night
Sweet sounds Echo in wet darkness
Cool damp breezes, challenge the brass notes Dribbling Drainpipes fill Circling puddles
Swirling leaves pirouette
Gracefully down
Circling gutters

An Orchestra of mindless players
Harmonize in perfect rhythm
An Orchestra of mindless players
Harmonize in perfect rhythm

Sweet silent
Rain fills the night
with a strange Gentleness
It moistly touches the trees with a Magic Light
Tender
Ever youthful
Violently beautiful rain

An Orchestra of mindless players
Harmonize in perfect rhythm
An Orchestra of mindless players
Harmonize in perfect rhythm
Track Name: Coma
COMA ©Max Sharam

I live like I live in a Coma
I smoke like an Iron Lung
Hide out in the dark when it’s summer
I never go out in the sun
I know that you have a new honey
I know that you have no more time
for me and you spend all your money
on her well I’ve made up my mind

I’m coming around
I’m coming around
better pull your blind down
better pull your blind dddd down!
I’m coming to get you.

I’ll creep ‘roud your garden ‘til daylight
I’ll look through your window ‘til dawn
I’m hoping to catch me a eyeful
of your love and you doing porn
I know that my mind is confusion
I know that you have no more love
for me and I need a transfusion
or someone to wake me - sh sh sh sh shake me

I’m coming around
I’m coming around
better pull your blind down
better pull your blind dddd down!
I’m coming to get you.

...8


I live like I live in a Coma
I smoke like an Iron Lung
Hide out in the dark when it’s summer
I don’t do much fun.
