The Voodoo Child

"What else should I be? All apologies
What else could I say? Everyone is gay
What else could I write? I don’t have the right
What else should I be? All apologies

In the sun, in the sun I feel as one
In the sun, in the sun
Married, buried

I wish I was like you easily amused
Find my nest of salt, everything is my fault
I’ll take all the blame, aqua seafoam shame
Sunburn, freezerburn, choking on the ashes of her enemy”

……..

“Lost inside my sick head
I live for you but I’m not alive
Take my hands before I kill
I still love you, I still burn”

……..

“Why don’t you tell your dreams to me
Fantasy will set you free
Close your eyes girl, look inside girl
Let the sound take you away”

………

"Don’t you know when you’re loving anybody, baby,
You’re taking a gamble on a little sorrow,
But then who cares, baby,
‘Cause we may not be here tomorrow, no.”

……..

“Well she’s walking through the clouds 
With a circus mind that’s running round 
Butterflies and zebras 
And moonbeams and fairy tales 
That’s all she ever thinks about 
Riding with the wind. 

When I’m sad, she comes to me 
With a thousand smiles, she gives to me free 
It’s alright she says it’s alright 
Take anything you want from me,
anything.

Fly on little wing, 
Yeah yeah, yeah, little wing”

……..

"When I was a child I caught a fleeting glimpse
Out of the corner of my eye
I turned to look but it was gone
I cannot put my finger on it now
The child is grown the dream is gone

I have become comfortably numb”

……..

'They may talk about you cold when you were 
Headed for the skies 
But you were young and bold and baby didn’t that 
Change with a wink of your eye 
Now no one’s talkin’ ‘bout those 
Crazy days gone by 
No one talks about the 
Times you cried 
Little dreamer 

 little dreamer 
And then they went and they voted you 
Least likely to succeed 
I had to tell them baby, you were armed with 
All you’d need 
Seems no one’s talkin’ ‘bout those 
Crazy days gone past 
Weren’t they amazed when you were 
Really last”
