Alone Together

by John Wesley

We sit alone together
and the space begins to breathe
distance seems to come alive
why this emptiness between you and me

Where is your compassionate smile
come here take hold of me
I’ll stroke your hair for a little while
just rest your eyes, it’ll be all right you see
just rest your eyes, it’ll be all right you see

We sit alone, together
your Crystal Blues have turned to ice
your heart is colder then November
what is it that I’ve failed to recognize

I could make all of this better
just don’t close your eyes
I could make all of this better
just don’t close your eyes
I could make all of this better
please don’t close your eyes

Goodbye to the Pale Blue Eyes

by John Wesley

Say goodbye to the girl with the pale blue eyes
is she too tired to see
oh no, she’s just tired of me

I am in love with the girl of the pale blue eyes
is she too blind to see
what all this is doing to me

She looks away when she sees me comin’
I lose my words when I try to speak
she won’t defend her reasons for runnin’
she’s just tired of being part of this losin’ streak

Says she’s got herself a good new man
say’s this time she won’t tell no lies
I can’t help but to want to tell him
don’t believe what it is you see in those eyes

And should those blue eyes see another
and should your lips feel his kiss
then God just let me shut my eyes to you
and help me find a way to get out of this
keep me sane while I’m getting out of this
then say goodbye to the girl with the pale blue eyes

Death of a Friend

by John Wesley

The fog sets in and covers the sky
the brightness of the stars will disappear
with no means to reason why

I felt your presence as if you were here
I cover you with all that I am
I still can’t see the sky
I still can’t see the sky

Watch you fly away Little Blue Angel
watch you race in the wind
why do you fly from me Little Blue Angel
this is not a dream, this is…

The death of a friend
this is the death of a friend
yes you were my friend
I will miss you my friend

To Reach Out

by John Wesley

Nothing changes with the moon
only the shades of emptiness within the room
and dark to light,
morning never comes too soon

I see the sunlight in your hair
I see you smile as you move without a care
and the morning,
becomes much brighter with you there

But the cold wind comes
and a cold wind blows
you feel so scared because you’re so alone
and like a frightened child
you call my name, you call my name

But you only had to reach out
to reach out and I’ll be here
reach out, reach out and take my hand.

The past it haunts you like a ghost
comes rushing back at you like waves
upon the coast
threatens what you are
and who you love the most

And when the cold wind comes
and a true wind blows
and you feel so scared because you’re all alone
like a frightened child, you call my name
you call my name, you call my name

And you only had to reach out

Waiting for the Sun

by John Wesley

Well here we are boy
and I’m through dreaming
all these colors I’ve been flying
have lost the will to keep me high
and I’m not amused…

So I said hey you’re no a star
so are you through screaming
cause all this paranoia’s got you
hiding in the dark
and I can’t see you…

Well shine the light
and you can come on in
can’t you see I’m on a mission
you can stay if you are wishin’
but I’m waiting…

see my daddy hit the doorway
when I was just a kid
said he’d gone to find the sunshine
and bring it back for me
and I’m waiting
waiting for the sun to shine

Do you see my scars
it’s dark and they’re glowing
all these tiny little punctures
are a doorway to the sun
a doorway to the sun
think I’ll have another one

I know he’s in here
I can feel him lookin’ for me
I hear him laughin’ like he did
like he did when I was young
daddy’s bringin’ me the sun
and I’m waiting
waiting for the sun to shine

She Said No

by John Wesley

It’s been long since we’ve spoken
thought that I might give a call
did you like the flowers, a small token
a gift for you is no trouble at all

It isn’t easy here without you
the days are long, nights way too hard
I was hoping I could see you
I miss your eyes, they touch my heart

She said no

Our little lady is asking for you
don’t understand where you have gone
all she knows is she can’t hold you
thinks that she’s done something wrong

Life isn’t easy here without you
she wakes at night to call your name
I tell her you love her and you miss her
but words from me just aren’t the same
oh baby come home please

She said no

You never face the consequences
you’ll always find some alibi
you leave us behind all cut and bleeding
you turn your back and you don’t know why
no you don’t know why

She said no

It’s been a long time since I’ve held you
no other woman fills my arms
I want to believe that you still love me
somehow I know you’re still there
I’m falling apart and I need your answer
just see my eyes and you’ll find it there
find it there

She said no

The Last Light

by John Wesley

We sit one on one as the night time comes
Stars set in as the last light runs
Something dark had befallen here
And what it is ain’t exactly clear
And we whisper and we pray for this to go away

Stars light your eyes in an emerald fire
The only witness as this night transpires
A dark like this we’ve never seen before
We reach for the light that’s beyond the door

Is there something to be said to make this go away
Can’t we just hold on to us to make this go away

I don’t want you to leave I don’t want you to go
I give you the last light in my eyes
And the last light inside of my soul
I don’t want you to leave I don’t want you to go

Words clench the air like an iron vice
And shows no mercy in exacting it’s price
But I’ve got a secret that I’ve saved for last
We can send these sorrows back into the past

Is there something to be said to make this go away
Can’t you look into my eyes and make this go away

I don’t want you to leave I don’t want you to go
I give you the last light in my eyes
And the last light inside of my soul

Take this gift from me
Take this gift and you’ll know
I give you the last light in my eyes
and the last light inside of my soul
I don’t want you to leave I don’t want you to go
I don’t want you to leave I don’t want you to go

Into the Night

by John Wesley

I don’t mind if you pry, it’s just me
It’s the one thing I protect so well
this is my story

I don’t care where you go or who you tell
cause it’s my life and my lines
and have no fear we’re not forgotten here

One step to the light to see
one foot on the edge that’s me
one long trail into the night
all over this battle field

Sometimes you crawl
sometimes you kneel
one long trail into the night
one long trail into the night

What you sell
is not who you are
it’s what you do

Who I am
I protect so well
keep away from you

I don’t care where you go
or who you tell
because into the night we go on and on
this is my story
oh this is my story

One step to the light to see
one foot on the edge, that’s me
one long trail into the night

Thirteen Days

by John Wesley

I was a child,
life in your arms you hold me
the fire in your eyes stopped the bleeding
the love in your heart kept me breathing

I feel I’m dying again.
I’ve got nothing but hatred for my lover and friend
the lion in your eyes watches me screaming
the cold in your heart keeps my blood freezing

Thirteen days, before you left me here staring
thirteen days, before you tried to stop caring

Stare into the dark
the emptiness of hell comes to enfold me
take a long look at your sweet creation
did you get a thrill to watch my heart breaking

Thirteen days, before you left me here standing alone
thirteen days, before you left me to die on a phone

I cannot pretend, can’t find an end
oh, how I miss you
I was your lover and you were my friend
I pray to God I never see you again

Thirteen days, before you left me here waiting to hold you
Thirteen days, before you forgot what I told you
Thirteen days, that you gave to me only to take from me
Thirteen days, before you left me here breaking

Rome is Burning

by John Wesley

High upon a hill
Looking over the ruins burning still
Where was I for all of this.
Where was I for all of this.

You never looked so bad she said
I didn’t know I could do all this she said
I didn’t know all this could burn with just a kiss
Burn with just a kiss
I didn’t know

You didn’t notice Rome was burning
You didn’t notice you had the flame still in your hands
Why didn’t you notice Rome was burning

As the passion filled your eyes
You couldn’t see to find the home you’d left behind
Like all the lovers that live blind
Lovers that live blind
No you couldn’t see

You didn’t notice Rome was burning
You didn’t notice you had the flame still in your hands
Why didn’t you notice Rome was burning

Cuttin' the Tree

by John Wesley

If it bleeds, would you tighten the tourniquet
or would you stare at the open wound
with lust and fascination

If the cut runs deep, would you reach
inside of it
or would you twist the knife in tight
with lust and fascination

You’ve got me out on the limb now baby,
would you be cuttin’ the tree.
you’ve got the wool in my eyes now
honey so blind I can’t see
are you settin’ your sights now baby,
are you settin’ on me.
You’ve got me out on the limb now baby,
would you be cuttin’ the tree
would you be cuttin’ the tree
would you

If I sleep
would you come inside of it
would you steal all my dreams of life
with lust and fascination

If I scream
would you kill to silence it
like stealing the words of a drowning man
with lust and fascination

You’ve got me out on the limb now baby,
would you be cuttin’ the tree.
You’ve got the wool in my eyes no
honey so blind I can’t see.
are you settin’ your sights now baby
are you settin’ on me.
You’ve got me out on the limb now baby,
would you be cuttin’ the tree
would you be cuttin’ the tree, would you
be cuttin’ the tree
