SLOWLY COMING DOWN 

Verse One 

A hot afternoon, and the curtains are drawn; no-one to witness her naked form - 

Bouncing off ceilings, climbing the walls; 

Recalling the fractures of previous falls... 

The eyes of an innocent, drinking it in; watches her mother dance spin after spin - 

No-one to catch her if she were to fall; 

He sent her spinning, and she witnessed it all... 

Chorus 

And she`s slowly coming, slowly coming down – 

Yes she`s slowly coming, slowly coming down... 

Verse Two 

From flying high- in just one night, we were crawling on all fours... 

Don`t open the windows, or answer the doors; 

Don`t talk to strangers – are you listening? 

Don`t talk to strangers; don`t you let them in... 

But the Devil don`t pose as a monster; he masquerades as your friend - 

He didn`t have to force an entry; you were the one who invited him... 

Verse Three 

Behind the doors the party begins; with judges and lords dressed as carnival queens - 

Costume balls, and coke lines on mirrors; 

Innocence lost to the season`s sinners... 

Pretty things are sent to amuse you; all of them sir are free to abuse - 

No questions, nothing`s forbidden - 

When you`re above the law you can`t lose - 

No, you can`t lose...

                                THE CHASE

Verse One 

I…I can hear laughter; see sun-kissed skin - 

Barefoot with freedom; it`s the time we`re in… 

Hey – smiling, elfin; so radiant with life - 

You run rings round my heart, then you take to flight… 

Verse Two 

Sometimes, I can hear you – are you here with me? 

If I spin on my heels; would you let me see? 

So go chatter with Angels, be secure in our love - 

Don`t imagine you`ve outrun us; we`ll join you soon enough… 

Chorus 

And so begins the chase again… 

And so begins the chase again 

Verse Three 

Cast your flowers to the water, as the sun hits the sea; 

With the turn of the tide, you drift away from me… 

So you`ll be my guide now; it`s a twist in our plan - 

And if I get lost, baby take my hand… 

Verse Four 

I still hear laughter; still see sun-kissed skin; 

Though we can`t be with you, I know we`ll meet again… 

I…I can hear laughter; I…I can hear laughter; 

And so begins the chase again - 

The chase again yeah, yeah…the chase again.

BLACK-WINGED DOVE 

Verse One 

I know that things are changing; I`ve nothin` to gain to see you lose 

I bear no false witness – you have the will, now you must choose 

You say fate just led you right to the centre of her storm 

Hot sweat and fever; beneath her sheets, you rise and fall... 

Chorus 

She casts a shadow in the sky above – just like a black winged dove 

She`ll break your spirit; she don`t need your love... 

She`s a black-winged dove. 

Verse Two 

Sweet life`s elixir; the scent of her body, soft and warm. 

You see no reason to leave her - there is no high enough reward... 

Chorus 

She casts a shadow in the sky above – just like a black-winged dove 

She`ll break your spirit; she don`t need your love... 

She`s a black-winged dove. 

And then she`ll leave you `cos it`s not enough – 

She`s a black-winged dove... 

Bridge 

I choose you – you will choose me! Just wait and see... 

Come; dance within me – I`ll take you into my skies, 

I`ll let you see the colours through my eyes – 

I`ll let you in...let me in! 

She`s a black-winged dove in the skies above... 

You`re caught in her shadow...
