Teksten - Night Nurse


Night Nurse

Nice T-shirt
Young lip
Shot me with a winner
Fluky luck of a beginner?
Little shy there, my reply

'cause all, and all, and all, and all
all, and all, and all, and all 
all, and all, and all I want
is you?.be my night nurse
I wanna nightnurse you too

The blossoms in your eye
Make me star-gaze for your flower
Under the skies I travel
Wanna join me in the saddle
Don't be shy

'cause all, and all, and all, and all
all, and all, and all,and all
all, and all, and all I want
Is you?. be my night nurse
I wanna nightnurse you too

Come defy my Berlin wall
With your smile like poems from Montreal
Like an uncared-for Pisa tower would fall
I fall for you ? for you ?be my night nurse
I wanna nightnurse you?too




I drown in our bed

Got a bed full of tears that I've been crying
A bed full of tears is all I have
You went away, I started crying
God I'm a cry baby and I'm drowning in bed
God I'm a cry baby and I drown in our bed
I drown in our bed, I drown in our bed

Got a house full of windows I've been blinding
A house full of windows painted black
I don't wanna see where you are riding
Go have your fun in someone else's bed
Go have your fun while I drown in our bed
I drown in our bed, I drown in our bed

Pointed a gun at you and said : "Stop lieing"
And you told me to put the gun away
Said only the truth will clarify thee
You didn't talk, I didn't shoot and you drove away
Driving my car while I drown in our bed
I drown in our bed, I drown in our bed




Bloodstain partout

He ran out the door into a thousand blue nights
Leaving an impossible future behind
He sailed on dry tears out of a harbour of passion
Dashed by the thought he could never come back
Not afraid of the darkness, no, the darkness was his friend
But afraid of his sad and mutilated heart
Why had he left the palace of love?
A house full of spirit, bravura and joy
With your flower blooming there, a most beautious one
It made the whole place look like a palace of warmth

But there's a bloodstain
In our eyes
Yeah there's a bloodstain
In our eyes

He walked under Celine-high trees that cuddled the skies
And thought of Anton Tsjechow's black monk
He was too weak for your wonder, and marked by your vibes
He carried is his ever trueness home
From the most passionate outburst he ever witnessed in life
Felt like leaving Las Vegas, broke and deprived
From luck, love and happiness
And your mysterious mind

But there's a bloodstain
In our eyes
Yeah there's a bloodstain 
In our eyes




But I do

I don't know where, I don't know what, I don't know who, 
I don't know when, I don't know why
You told me lies for truth
And I wish that I were strong enough to leave you 
For the rest of my life
I thought you held the truth

I see you with a lot of men, you make 'm look like fools
And I see you with some lonely women falling into ruin
You walk in like an angel with a taste hard to refuse
Too many of us want you when you sell 'm lies for truth

But I don't wanna miss you baby
Baby, baby miss you but I do
I don't wanna miss you baby, 
Baby, baby miss you but I do

You're pumping up the beat of my heart and than it goes blind
We meet in every street in town
I can feel you burning on my lips when you're upside down
And I hate you and I love and I will never know why




Do you want me?

Do you want me to be your friend?
Do you want me as a one-night stand?
Do you want me as your third hand?
Do you want me as your backdoorbaby?
Do you want me on trial or maybe
Do you want me forever and again?

Looking for the answer, I'm afraid I lost my sensor
Gotta tell me straight, may be in a t?te-?-t?te
You wanna feel me naked, feel me sharpdressed, 
Feel my slowhand, feel my tutti frutti fast
Can I drink, can I smoke, can I be a junkfree bloke?
They say I never take it easy but that's a lie,
I just take the escalator 'cause I'm elevator-shy, that's why

I'm not a one-trick pony, I sing more than one canzone
Not a wizard with my hands, but I can make you come and dance,
Got a terrible fear of heights, I travel but I hate the flights
I sleep in the daytime and in a coconut I put a lime
Let me be your top lover, the fourth leaf on your clover,
the Moses of your sea, a baroque life garantee,
Don't know how to roll the dice, but I roll 'm

I'm a fan of Bobs and of non violent bankrobs,
Johnny Cash and I already had a moustache
But I shaved it off, I do like flowers on tablecloth,
I been in New York, Amsterdam and Brussels, 
All on the same day flying home for mussels

Do you want me to be your friend?
Do you want me as a one-night stand?
Do you want me as your third hand?
Do you want me as your backstagebaby?
Do you want me as your don't-mean-maybe?
Do you want me like candy on candy-may-day?




I want that boy back

I got a sixpack of angels wanting us to be one
And a fifth full of rage that I should leave alone
Got a small bag of something that's making me see
More and in colours, wondrous ideas

But the bird on the wire is whistling a tune
I can hear it sing: 'My god what a fool!'
I know the fool and I know the thinker,
And that all of the signs lead to the headshrinker

I want that boy back
He ran out overnight
I want that boy back
Get me online
Gotta talk to him now

Love is a gift of the Gods for us all
It's glowing inside us the minute we're born
And love is right here, at my lips, at my feet,
But I look the other way 'cause I believe it's only a dream 

I want that boy back
He ran out overnight
I want that boy back
Get me online
Gotta talk to him now




Little Baby

Lord I found a little, a little, a little little baby 
in my heart
Lord I found a little, a little, a little little baby 
singing a song, in my heart

Few people waltz on the moon, or round a tree in the Louvre,
Or fly holding hands over the Amazone woods
Few get to walk on a lake
All that I know is that some people do
never complain and never condemn
nice and true, no need to offend

I could not hear her sigh, oh well, maybe I could,
but the tears that you cried were too dry
One foot in the grave means there's one foot alive
It gave me the power, the power so new
To defy all the wonderful drugs 
Gods invented for us

Now who's pure and simple?
Who finds his own truth?
Who's walking the dog to its favorite tree,
without using a leash 
Who's God never renounces, destroys or excludes? 
Making love on a bed of roseleaves, who's fooling who?




Silence tells it all

I know the far out dead end streets 
There's a bed in every one
Some were marvellous one night sleeps
But then I woke up to get going

I don't have to turn my head
To see where I'm walking away from 
The old horizon drowns in rain 
The new one's burning in her sun

Way from the world and in her arms, 
rests the cannonball
Way from the world and in her arms, 
silence tells it all

The wallpaper's hosting butterflies
She's teaching me how 
How to wait the endless while
That'll make the butterfly fly

Way from the world and in her arms, 
rests the cannonball
Way from the world and in her arms, 
silence tells it all

Way from the world and in her arms
Way from the world and in her arms 
Rests the cannonball...
...Silence tells it all?Silence tells it all




The road that swings

Brother I can help you find a way through the day
Brother can you handle all the words that you pray
I can see the roadblocks
There's a tune out on the juke-box and it doesn't rhyme
It must be playing more than one tune at a time
Some songs you never sing
And some you sing for life

There's a sign in every face that you're passing by
You gotta read it through your pink shades, I don't lie,
To find the road that swings

Brother I can feel you were little surprised
Brother when you noticed that your ceiling came down
Dust in both your head and shoulders
There's a tune out on the juke-box and it doesn't rhyme
you must be playing more than one tune at a time
You gotta make it home
tell the black cat she'll have to go

Yeah there's a map in every eye man, just take five
You gotta read it like a mirror, it might tell you how
To find the road that swings

There's a hint in every tiding, wether truth or lie
There's a good chance that it came to tell you how 
To find the road that swings

There's a hint in every tiding, wether truth or lie
There's a good chance that it came to tell you how
To find the road that swings




The Shell

Overexposure to the light love,
is not exactly what we need
Everybody's hiding more than half of 
what a heart can read
Born in love or born in hell, 
you gotta grow up someone worthy
Of leaving the shell

Once you're grown up, you grow down, 
just as fast as night and day
While you find out you're going nowhere,
you fall in love and out of love again
And that's how you prepare, 
for the leaving shell

You're done calling mama 
You may whisper, you may yell
You're done calling mama
You're disconnected from the shell

Oh mother it was not your map on which I'm still 
trying to find my way
And the one that you were painted on, 
God did not use his better hand
I was your pearl, you were my shell, 
Now I'm running loose
For as long as time will tell, 
time won't tell




Woman ideas

I was in the East Village while the hour went blue
Waiting for a woman who was long overdue
I saw her everywhere, but she never saw me

I was in the Bowery and I saw her on the street
Every other minute, in another body,
Different walk and a different dress
Different make-up, different past,
Different looks behind sunglasses 

Send me your, send me your, send me your love 
And please ?bring me your woman ideas

Little Italy and every sign told me
I would kiss her on the mouth today
Sittin' sippin' coffee in a Brooklyn bar
Blue in the face, 'cause she kissed the wrong star

Send me your, send me your, send me your love 
And please?bring me your woman ideas




Wow wow wow

Some girls they paint their toenails,
Others paint your future black
Some girls are fairy tales for ever
And some will only wake you up
Some girls they turn their back on you
Or make you wait the longest while
Some girls got arms wide open
Like the mouth of the Nile
Some girls look in your eyes 
Breathing that million puzzled why's
Some girls need just one arrow
To make you fully blind
Make your heart go Wow
Make your heart go Wow
Wow wow wow

Some girls they weed their garden 
So their flower grows in peace
And some girls make your head spin
Wish you were the oldest priest in Greece
Some girls know how to lie
Some sell the truth at cost
But the truth is always moving
Always trying to get lost
Some girls don't care for baiting
Some girls they fish without
Other girls live on high heels
Show you leg up to the sky
Make your heart go wow
Make your heart go wow
Wow wow wow

If all 'm women were alike
They'd probably would be no fun at all
If all the women were alike
The woman that I truly love
I'd hold her even better than I do
And tell her baby, baby, babe it's you
Who makes my heart go wow
Make my heart go wow
Wow wow wow




I go now my love

All the time it took to find you
All the hours you stayed numb
How I travelled far to free you
Making wrong turns on and on
How I worked with fingers bleeding
How I learned to sing your song
Come a day now I can feel you
On the day that I must go

I go now my love
I go now my love
I go now my love
I go now my love

There's a world out there that needs me
In a world for everyone
There's a girl out there that feels like
I have left her whiles ago
How I'd love to pet you both
One on earth, one miles above
I can not explain I've met you
There's no good in doing so

I go now my love
I go now my love
I go now my love
I go now my love

Wake myself up in the first light
I'm so smart I see the fun 
In saving uncut souls
For all my dearest ones 

I go now my love
I go now my love
I go now my love
I go now my love
....
