Little Queen tracks

Lyrics

1. BARRACUDA

So this ain't the end - I saw you again - today
I had to turn my heart away
You smiled like the sun - kisses for everyone
And tales- it never fails!

You're lying so low in the weeds
I bet you're gonna ambush me
You'd have me down, down, down, down on my knees
Oh wouldn't you, barracuda?

Oh!

Back over time when we were all trying for free
You met The porpoise and me
No right, no wrong, you're selling a song- a name
Whisper game

And if the real thing don't do the trick
You better make up something quick
You gonna burn, burn, burn, burn, burn it to the wick
Ooooh, barracuda!

Oh!

'sell me sell you' the porpoise said
Dive down deep down, deeper than
You.. I think that you got the blues too

All that night and all the next
Swam without looking back
Made for the western pools- silly, silly fools!

The real thing don't do the trick, no?
You better make up something quick
You gonna burn, burn, burn, burn it to the wick
Ahh, barra- barracuda!




2. LOVE ALIVE

The sky was dark this morning
When I raised my head
I stood at the window- darkness was my bane

Suddenly a sunbeam arch
Thrilled me to my weary heart
It was the prettiest thing I'd ever seen

I knew I had to keep my love
Keep my love alive
Keep my love- keep my love alive

Baby I want you to roll me
Hold me in your love
No more habits, promises and jive

Ever since I was a baby girl
Wanted one thing most in this world
It was to keep my love- keep my love alive

I want to keep my love- keep my love alive
Keep my love- keep my love alive

You're up there under the spotlight
Your silver trophy shines
With all you got, my lord! you must get high
You need a whole lot more than money
You need more than to survive
You gotta keep your love
Keep your love alive!




3. SYLVAN SONG

(Instrumental)




4. DREAM OF THE ARCHER

Wayfaring warrior soul- still wild
The archer stands
Arrow measured to the goal- sing of
Strong and living man
In his mind there is a vision wand'ring
Through the forest town
Telling of riches only given if through the woods
The way is found

Crying 'ah! beautiful dancers.. wake up
From your sleep!
Ahh! Gentle romancers.. drink of love so sweet!'

Treasure glowing in their eyes- forest deep ends
Dark their dream
'keep to the pathways,' he advised, 'the woods are
More than they might seem'
'heed you now the apparition bending never ending
Sounds
Calling you into her mystery- are your eyes
Nor sparkling now?'

Sighing 'ahh, take you no warning- make no
Foolish fight
Ahh, think not of morning- lie here
Through the night'

'beauty take us!' they call 'in my arms!'
They hear her say
Silken web falls- mist illusion rips away
'helpless! helpless!' now they scream
Helpless on the path he stands
And awakens from his dream singing string
Beneath his hand

Gentle archer ages old- release the aim
Free the goal
Roll your arrow to my soul- release the aim
Free the goal




5. KICK IT OUT

Out of the street - get on home
Tail shaking filly running on her own
They say she got loose on the night she was born
Cranking it up in a school zone

'kick it out - kick it out!' she said
'kick out your motor and drive
While you're still alive - kick it out!'

Sitting in a bar in a seaside town
Sweet little love getting high getting down
Sailors see her running along the beach
Laugh and jump out of reach

Wild music blowing in her mane
She needs a bareback rider won't give her no pain
A hard racy game of give and take
Leaves them dazed- half crazed- in her wake

'kick it out- kick it out!' she said
'kick out your motor and drive
While you're still alive- kick it out!'




6. LITTLE QUEEN

You'd rather have wine than gin
Only the finest by your skin
Always running after time - catching
You're fancy with rhyme
Shining on the front page again

Hot on the presses today - little queen
Making your passion play - little queen
Nobody knows your melancholy mind -
Little queen

Away from the sellers, the papers said
Your crown was tight and heavy on your head
Still you danced and you sang - all night
The telephone rang
Music kept on playing from your pen.

Hot on the presses today - little queen
Making your passion play - little queen
Nobody knows your melancholy mind -
Little queen

Raining raining- he knows your soul ain't free
Raining raining- he feels you little queen

Slipping away with your gypsy band
Hot on your music and playing a winning hand
He was standing in the line, thinking how you
Moved his mind
Feeling like he held you in his hand




7. TREAT ME WELL

Well I have lost some time but I have won
And if you make it through
You know you've just begun

The winter cold is coming
And the fire will soon be burning

So will you treat me well
Oh, will you treat me well?

And I am asking will you save a place for me
To rest beside your heart
And feel I'm free
Now what good does feeling strong do
When I am here without you?

So will you treat me well
Oh well, will you treat me well?




8. SAY HELLO

I'd like to know when you will say hello
When will it be I'd like to see you know
When will you change your mind and say hello?

Something is sending all sensations high
Someone is calling clearly to you now
Look for the one who will not say good-bye

Say hello
Say hello

Say hello to all your secret light inside
Build up your fire, take a ride I know
There'll be a night when you won't want to hide

Say hello
Say hello




9. CRY TO ME

Poor little dreamer
Stand inside the door
You can't find the easy rhymes
Of time you had before

It hurts my heart so bad
Seeing you sigh and shake
Broken down so low - so sad
I can't let you break

Cry to me - cry to me
You better not hide it
Let it come - let it bleed
I ain't laughing - reach in and get it
And set it free
Cry to me - cry to me

The glass is empty and the wine
Is bitter on your tongue
People don't seen wild and fine
Like when you were young

You're lonesome over a stormy ocean
Lost in the rain and wind
We can clear these clouds away
And feel the sun again




10. GO ON CRY

Go on cry
Go on cry
Go on cry
Cry cry cry cry

Go on cry, cry, cry
Go on cry
Cry cry cry
