TO BRING YOU MY LOVE

I was born in the desert
I been down for years
Jesus, come closer
I think my time is near
And I've travelled over
Dry earth and floods
Hell and high water
To bring you my love

Climbed over mountains
Travelled the sea
Cast down off heaven
Cast down on my knees
I've lain with the devil
Cursed god above
Forsaken heaven

To bring you my love
To bring you my love
To bring you my love
To bring you my love

I know he's gonna be here
You know he's gonna be here
Yeah alright

Forsaking heaven
Curse god above
Lay with the devil
Bring you my love

To bring you my love
To bring you my love
To bring you my love












MEET ZE MONSTA

At my head
I'm not running

Big black monsoon

Big black monsoon

Out of this world

Hell ain't half full
Take me with you
Big black monsoon

WORKING FOR THE MAN

In the night I look for love
Get my strength from the man above
God of piston, god of steel
God is here behind the wheel

I'm just working
For the man

Pretty things get in my car
Take them flying, it's not far
Take in handsome, take in me
Look good in my steel machine

I'm just working
For the man

Don't you know yet who I am?
Working harder for the man
Go around I'm doing good
Get my strength from the man above

I'm just working
For the man

I'm just doing
What I can

Go around I'm doing good
Go around I'm doing good












C'MON BILLY

C'mon Billy
Come to me
You know I'm waiting
I love you endlessly

C'mon Billy
You're the only one
Don't you think it's time now
You met your only son

I remember
Lover's play
The corn was golden
We lay in it for days

I remember
The things you said
My little Billy,
Come to your lover's bed

Come home
Is my plea
Your home now is
Here with me
Come home
To your son
Tomorrow might never come

C'mon Billy
You look good to me
How many nights now
Your child inside of...

Don't forget me
I had your son
Damn thing went crazy
But I swear you're the only one

Come along, Billy, come to me
Come along, Billy, come to me












TECLO

Long goes the night
Longer the day
Teclo your death
Will send me to my grave

I learned to beg
I learned to pray
Send me his love
Send him to me again

Let me ride
Let me ride
Let me ride on his grace for a while

Let me ride
Let me ride
Just let me ride on his grace for a while

Long goes the night
Longer the day
Teclo your death
Will send me to my grave

Let me ride
Let me ride
Just let me ride on his grace for a while

Let me ride
Let me ride
Just let me ride on your grace for a while

Just let me ride












LONG SNAKE MOAN

Dunk you
Under
Deep salt
Water
Bring me
Lover
All your
Power

I'll be
No hell
Out of
Your spell
Over
Under
Die of
Pleasure

Hear my
Dreaming
You'll be
Drowning
Hell's no
God above
All drunk
On my love

You oughta hear my long snake moan!
You oughta see me from my moan!

Dunk you
Under
Deep salt
Water
In my
Dreaming
You'll be
Drowning
Raise me
Up lord
Call me
Lazarus
Hey lord
Hear me
Make me
My fill

You oughta hear my long snake moan!
You oughta see me from my moan!

It's my voodoo working
It's my voodoo working
It's my voodoo working
It's my voodoo working












DOWN BY THE WATER

I lost my heart
Under the bridge
To that little girl
So much to me
And now I moan
And now I holler
She'll never know
Just what I found
That blue eyed girl
She said "no more"
That blue eyed girl
Became blue eyed whore
Down by the water
I took her hand
Just like my daughter
I'll see her again

Oh help me Jesus
Come through this storm
I had to lose her
To do her harm
I heard her holler
I heard her moan
My lovely daughter
I took her home

Little fish, big fish, swimming in the water.
Come back here, man, gimme my daughter.
Little fish, big fish, swimming in the water.
Come back here, man, gimme my daughter.












I THINK I'M A MOTHER

You think you'll come over
I gave you my number
You lover, supporter
Then give me a mother
You come take me home and
Take me to your doctor
You think you'll come over?

I think I'm a mother

Roll over, roll over
And roll me a man-a
You lover, my lover
You just roll me over
You give me a mother
A man if I love her
I love her, I'll keep her
I'll let her just keep her

Come on and support her
I said to the mother
She said you come over
She said she's a boulder
I love her, I kept her
And then she just left and
Alone, I implore ya

I think I'm a mother
Mother
More than ever
Need you mother












SEND HIS LOVE TO ME

Lover had to leave me
Cross the desert plain
Turned to me, his lady
Tells me "lover wait"

Calling Jesus, please
Send his love to me

Oh, wind and rain may haunt me
Look to the north and pray
Send me, please, his kisses
Send them home today

I'm begging Jesus, please
Send his love to me

Left alone in desert
This house becomes a hell
This love becomes a tether
This room becomes a cell

Mummy, Daddy, please
Send him back to me

How long must I suffer?
Dear god, I've served my time
This love becomes my torture
This love, my only crime

Lover please release me
My arms too weak to grip
My eyes to dry for weeping
My lips too dry to kiss

Calling Jesus, please
Send his love to me

I'm begging Jesus, please
Send his love to me












THE DANCER

He came riding fast like a phoenix out of fire flames
He came dressed in black with a cross bearing my name
He came bathed in light and the splendour and glory
I can't believe what the lord has finally sent me

He said dance for me, fanciulla gentil
He said laugh a while, I can make your heart feel
He said fly with me, touch the face of the true god
And then cry with joy at the depth of my love

Cause I've prayed days, I've prayed nights
For the lord just to send me home some sign
I've looked long, I've looked far
To bring peace to my black and empty heart

My love will stay till the riverbed run dry
And my love lasts long as the sunshine blue sky
I love him longer as each damn day goes
The man is gone and heaven only knows

Cause I've cried days, I've cried nights
For the lord just to send me up some sign
Is he near? Is he far?
Bring peace to my black and empty heart

So long day, so long night
Good lord, be near me tonight
Is he near? Is he far?
Bring peace to my black and empty heart
