Make It Happen

All I want
All I need
Just a sign to know the way, you feel it
For so long I’ve been alone
Trying to find some peace of mind, some meaning
If you stay I’ll find a way
Never let it fade away, I’ll be true
I wanna know which way to go
Tell me now, tell me how to reach you
Once you believe, start to receive
Anything can happen
One you give in, start to begin
Anything can happen
You can make it happen
Never let it fade away

Strange Fruit

Southern trees bear a strange fruit
Blood on the leaves and blood at the root
Black bodies swingin’ in the Southern breeze
Strange fruit hangin’ from the poplar trees

Pastoral scene of the gallant South
The bulgin’ eyes and twisted mouth
Scent of magnolias sweet and fresh
And the sudden smell of burnin’ flesh

Here is a fruit for the crows to pluck
For the rain to gather, for the wind to suck
For the sun to rot, for the tree to drop
Here is a strange and bitter crop

Hold Me Now

I have a picture pinned to my wall
an image of you and of me
And we’re laughin’ with love at it all.
Look at our life now
tattered and torn

We fuss and we fight and delight in the tears
That we cry until dawn.

hold me now. Oh
warm my heart

Stay with me
let lovin’ start
let lovin’ start.
You say I’m a dreamer
we’re two of a kind

Both of us searching for some perfect world
We know we’ll never find.
So perhaps I should leave here
go far away

But you know that there’s nowhere
That I’d rather be than with you here today.
hold me now. Oh
warm my heart
. . .
hold me now. Oh
warm my heart
. . .

You asked if I love you
what can I say?
You know that I do and that this is just one of those games that we play.
So I’ll sing you a new song
don’t cry anymore

I’ll even ask your forgiveness though I don’t know
Just what I’m asking it for.
hold me now. Oh
warm my heart
