Independent

Never asked you what to say,
Never asked you what to do,
But you told me what I may,
But you told me what not to.

You know now what I’m to say,
You know now what I’m to do,
Just three words: do go away.
You’ve told me, now I tell you.

Parking Lot

“Love is not enough
For me to be with you.
Maybe you will laugh
At me – but it is true…
I love you with all
My heart and soul – so what?
That makes an evening call
Or tears in parking lot,
But nothing more than that
If you are not the one
For you… hey, what’s the mat–
My dear, what have you done?”

“Just kissed you!”

“What for?”

“To make you understand:
I love you even more
Than you could ever stand.
So, if you are not
Now too much cross at me,
Let’s drive to the parking lot –
I’ll make you see:
It’s not for letting tears
Run and pour down your face,
It’s for me to kiss you, dear,
Hold in embrace,
Whisper, sweet and low,
That I’ll meet you next day…
But never let you go and never drive away!”

Love Always Wins

Give me your word though it means nothing more
Than eavesdroppers do for a locked iron door.
I’ll have at least something to scold you for
When you break your promise – and we start the war
Of betrayed lovers, both of whom are wrong
And whose hatred for the moment is strong,
But we will both realise before long –
Love always wins. Well, at least in this song.

Love Stop

Stop to love me,
But don’t stop loving,
See the difference,
See the pain.
Stop to love me,
But don’t stop loving,
Don’t let me stiffen,
Break the chain.

Stop to love me,
But don’t stop loving.
I know you’ve never
Learnt grammar rules.
Stop to love me,
But don’t stop loving.
Be forever
No more than you.

Nine-Days Flower (to Lady Jane Grey)

Look back into dusty past.

July brought two queens in a row:
After the Twain hero died,
Naming Jane for the regal role,
Enemies were not to hide.

Glued to dreams of crown and power
Ready came the Bloody Mary.
End of life of a nine-days flower.
You have found it all too scary…

A Rainy Quarrel

I know that something went wrong yesterday night
And you urged me to get out of your sight,
I almost obeyed as your eyes promised no good –
One more word from me – and you were ready to shoot…

But ’cause it’s likely to rain
Today
Again
I wish I could just remain
Today
Again
By your side
And despite
Your unbreakable pride
You could let me stay
Today
Again

Girls are like that – their green eyes promise no good,
But in a moment or two there is loads of food
And they hope cooking will win our hearts back again,
And they are so damn right especially when there is such rain.

Because it’s likely to rain
Today
Again
I wish I could just remain
Today
Again
By your side
And despite
Your unbreakable pride
You could let me stay
Today
Again
