WILDCARD! / Full Album Lyrics

Wild Card - cd front

1 O Divina

Fundamentally sound
My karma’s coming round
And I`m not worried
Fundamentally blue
Except when I’m with you
My soul’s excited
O she comes in flavours
Like the kiss of a tangerine
And she comes in graceful
Animation like fantasy
Right there, right there, right there
Right there, right there, right
O Divina perhaps you’ve seen her
Or been her or are her
O she comes in waves of
Satisfaction that sing to me
And she understands that
Forgiveness is charity
Right there, right there, right there
Right there, right there, right
O Divina perhaps you’ve seen her
Or been her or are her
O she comes in lovely affirmations
Like „yes you can!“
And her love is unconditional
And says „you’re the man“
Right there, right there, right there
Right there, right there, right
O Divina perhaps you’ve seen her
Or been her or are her

2 Designated Fool

 There she goes speculating on someone
For her private school
There he is her next suga daddy-o
Her designated fool
She’s a teacher of unbelievable skill
I once loved her and now I`m paying the bill
Afrobatics
Videos for fanatics
In her private school
Athletics natural and synthetic
Designated fool
Right about now she’s regulating on someone
With her juicy groove
If papa comes quick
She’ll slow ‘em down and teach ‘em a textbook trick
Some advanced curriculum
She’s a master
At stimulating her class
I once loved her
I graduated too fast
Afrobatics
Videos for fanatics
In her private school
Athletics natural and synthetic
Designated fool
She’s a master of unbelievable skill
I once loved her and now I’m paying the bill
Your diploma is quite impressive my son
Proudly displayed until another man comes
Afrobatics
Videos for fanatics
In her private school
Athletics natural and synthetic
Designated fool

3 My Dark Places

Come and say hello
In my shadow nature there`s a private room
Where I keep my fear
Every now and then never knowing when
I have to disappear
Slaying my dragons by trying to love them
Let’s suspend some time together
Let’s reduce our gravity
And remind ourselves of rainbows
And make love convincingly
Since we’re parking in each other’s spaces
Would you visit me in my dark places?
Would you come and help me bring it into the light?
Would you visit me in my dark places?
Would you help me burn a candle into the night?
Come and say hello
In the belly of my superstitions are many souvenirs
From my travels through my psyches underworld
Where I disappear
Slaying my dragons by trying to love them
Let`s commit our souls to silver
Let`s commit our hearts to gold
And remember in every moment
That we have ourselves to hold
Since we’re laughing in each other’s faces
Would you visit me in my dark places?
Would you come and help me bring it into the light?
Would you visit me in my dark places?
Would you help me burn a candle into the night?
Come and say hello
Let’s suspend some time together
Let’s reduce our gravity
And remind ourselves of rainbows
And make love convincingly
Since we’re living in each other’s graces
And we’re travelling at each other’s paces
Would you visit me in my dark places?
Would you come and help me bring it into the light?
Would you visit me in my dark places?
Would you help me burn a candle into the night?
Come and say hello

4 The Inner Scream

If you’re not good to yourself
You’ll be drowned out
By your inner scream
If you’re not good to yourself
Then your anger becomes a disease
A carnival of confusion
A carousel of emotion
A freak show of frustration
A merry go-round mojo
If you’re not good to yourself
If you’re not good to yourself
You’ll look elsewhere for absolution!
If you’re not good to yourself
Then your self doubt becomes retribution
A sideshow of suspicion
A ferris wheel of fear
A roller coaster of madness
A circus of solitude
If you’re not good to yourself
Go on and let your scream out
Let it out
If you’re not good to yourself
You’ll be drowned out
By your inner scream
If you’re not good to yourself
Then your anger becomes a disease
If you’re not good to yourself
Go on and let your scream out
Let it out

5 SRR-636*

 Get out of your head
Get into my bed she said
Get your wiggle on
Strut like Sinatra
Sample someone`s song
Sing for your supper
Like a rolling stone
I jam with a Woody
Wearing cheap cologne
A sweet suga daddy
Get out of your head
Get into my bed she said
Get your wiggle on
Be sexy like Lenny!
Let your mind move on
It sells for a penny
Like a record groove
Gets scratched by a needle
Telling kids the truth
About The Byrds and The Beatles
Get out of your head
Get into my bed she said
Get your wiggle on
The bees in their bonnets
Are making honey from
Unwritten sonnets
Release your inner scream!
And float with a swagger
Dancing in the street
Like Bowie and Jagger
Get out of your head
Get into my bed she said

6 Drivin` Me Crazy

Please excuse me as I go insane
And metamorphisize into the rain
I see pools of fate I think they call your eyes
I guess that my reaction`s no surprise
You`re drivin` me crazy
Because you won`t be my baby
There`s space for you in my reality
To merge with your vibration peacefully
I see laughter as a rainbow from the heart
And then I think of you and fall apart
You`re drivin` me crazy
Because you won`t be my baby
I see symphonies in motion when you breathe
How can I make you see what I believe?
You`re drivin` me crazy
Because you won`t be my baby

7 Suga Free

The flavour fades
From Lady Marmalade
Our carousel
Has lost it’s caramel
Cos my baby’s gone suga free
She ain’t sweet like she used to be
My sweet tooth is missing a cavity yo
Because my baby’s gone suga free
My cinnamon girl
Took back her peppermint pearl
It’s seems that she
Now counts her calories!
Cos my baby’s gone suga free
She ain’t sweet like she used to be
My sweet tooth is missing a cavity yo
You know my baby’s gone suga free
Honeydew
And now honey don’t!
My baby’s gone suga free
She ain’t sweet like she used to be
My sweet tooth is missing a cavity yo
My baby’s gone suga free

8 What Shall I Do?

If you leave my dream
Will you turn out the light
So my eyes won’t see
That my fantasy is escaping me for reality
Shall I tell her
That she’s the spring
Arriving on wings
Shall I tell her
That I hear our hearts
Our whispering
And the words I overhear
As you draw near
What shall I do?
If you won’t run away with me forever
What shall I do?
What shall I do?
The only thing that time will change
Is whether
I can retrieve
My heart if you leave
When I kissed your lips
It’s as if I’ve been hit
By a melody
There have been no regrets
Though I’ve placed all my bets
On your memory
Shall I tell her
That she’s the glow
That my heaven knows
Shall I tell her
That she’s the gleam
That powers my dream
And by the flame
That floats between our eyes
I realize
What shall I do?
If you won’t run away with me forever
What shall I do?
What shall I do?
The only thing that time will change
Is whether
I can be seen
With you in my dream
As the sunset fades
And with moonlight trades
Tender harmonies
Shall I tell her
That I can see
The woman she’ll be
Shall I tell her
That I’m now alive
Instead of surviving
‘Cause if I lay with her
I stay with her
What shall I do?
If you won’t run away with me forever
What shall I do?
What shall I do?
The only thing that time will change
Is whether
I can retrieve
My heart if you leave

9 Testify

Once ago there were lovebirds
Who began to fly
Into different spaces of the sky
They were kissed by grace notes
Passing by on there rainbow faces
Testify
Love is never easy
Love is never easy
Testify
Love is never easy
Love is never easy
But I’ll still give it a try
Sometimes I wonder why
Once ago there were sun birds
Who began to burn
With the heat of summers soft concern
But he turned her faith into a lie
And it stole her sigh
Testify
Love is never easy
Love is never easy
Testify
Love is never easy
Love is never easy
But I’ll still give it a try
Sometimes I wonder why
I can hear my lover calling
As the lazy afternoon is falling
Even if it’s in my mind my memory just killing time
Loving has left me wanting
A ghost would find love haunting
I’ll have to see if it costs an arm and a legacy
But it’s still in question I can’t deny
That it took a while to learn to fly
So I did impressions
Testify
Love is never easy
Love is never easy
Testify
Love is never easy
Love is never easy
But I’ll still give it a try
Sometimes I wonder why

10 Shalom

The cradle of my desire
Is at your command
What’s in a name Shalom?
Segue to my street and
In the middle of it say hello
In the fragrance of your peace
A blossom falls
And my memory remembers
An angel call
What’s in a name Shalom
Segue to my street and
In the middle of it say hello
On the trail of where a kiss leads to
I breathe a sigh
Invisible voices say hello
And then goodbye
Maybe she’ll come back
Maybe she’ll come back home
What’s in a name Shalom?
Segue to my street and
In the middle of it say hello
And on dovetail junction is a caravan
Where the cradle of my desire is
At your command
Maybe she’ll come back
Maybe she’ll come back home
What’s in a name Shalom?
Segue to my street and
In the middle of it say hello
In the fragrance of your peace
A blossom falls
And my memory remembers
An angel call
The well of loneliness is wet with tears
As a canopy of clouds steals
The limelight from the stars

11 Girl

Girl, look at the way she smiles at me
Girl, look at how free she seems to be
The sky has no shelter in the summer
The sun is so dazzling without a cloud
The people are floating but then I see her
And now I’m floating
(Contact, I want contact!)
I think that I’m falling in love
Girl, look at the way she smiles at me
Girl, look at how free she seems to be
I’m having a vision and we are standing
Upon the shoulders of a moonbeam
Her eyes are closing for our first kiss
She is a vision
(Contact, I want contact!)
I think that I’m falling in love •
Girl, look at the way she smiles at me
Girl, look at how free she seems to be!

12 Ev`rythang

The view from the mountain
Is the same as the one from the shore
The view from an open window
Is the same as from a closed door
The fabulous sunset
Is a joy to behold
And the chains of perception
Have broken their mold
I wanna be one with
Ev’rythang, ev’rythang, ev’rythang
I look at my sister and at my brother
I see that I`m no more, nor less than another
I see that the rainbow is my family tree
I love every colour and every mother
`Coz everyone is family
I wanna be one with
Ev’rythang, ev’rythang, ev’rythang

13 Sweetness

Sing your magic spell
Into my ear
Place a blissful sigh
Into my tears
Cradle my forgiveness
Judging that I’m half a man
If it were not for your sweetness
I would not know who I am
Take your magic broom
And sweep my heart
Rescue cupid’s arrow
From broken hearts
Reaching for completeness
Digging deep into the sand
If it were not for your sweetness
I would not know who I am
I find a shelter in your wings
I find my self-remembering
That I’m in a dream
Blow your moonlit trumpet
And sound my tone
Sing to me your silence
And call me home
I’m not full of answers
Though I pretend that I am
If it were not for your sweetness
I would not know who I am

14 Some Birds Blue (Thursday’s Child)

Thursday’s child has far to go
But there are things he needs to know
Thursday’s child is wondering why
His apple has fallen from your eye
Why are some birds blue?
What is the taste of rain?
Why are some birds blue?
And why am I not with you?
Thursday’s child has love to give
From a heart that’s positive
Thursday’s child was born to sing
Into your ear the sweetest things
Why are some birds blue?
What is the taste of rain?
Why are some birds blue?
And why am I not with you?
Dreamers begin by opening their mind
And throwing out the doubt they find
Happiness is the freedom to be
Within your sensuality
Thursday’s child has far to go
And he still loves you so
Thursday’s child has only you
And questionmarks to answer to
Why are some birds blue?
What is the taste of rain?
Why are some birds blue?
And why am I not with you?

15 Be Willing

Be willing to achieve what suits your heart
Be willing to begin leaving your mark
Dig out your buried treasure
Your work of art
And nothing will ever stand between
Heaven and your heart
Be willing to attain your freedom from
Hatred and bitterness then carry on
A masterpiece of promise is what you are
And never let nothing stand between
Heaven and your heart
Be willing to forgive an oversight!
Be willing to explore what doesn’t bite
Fearlessness is a fountain
That redecorates the dark
And nothing will ever stand between
Heaven and your heart

16 Goodbye Diane

Once upon a time I said some pretty fucked up things
If ignorance is blissful then knowledge has made me wistful
Once upon a time I stayed within your dotted line
But you would never swallow that I was never born to follow
So goodbye Diane
I really hope that you will understand
Once upon a time I scored from the baseline off the glass
The coach instead of praising me said I should have made the pass
Once upon a time I ran with your lions in the field
My lamb was getting trampled but now his bleats are getting sampled
So goodbye Diane
I really hope that you will understand
Mamaraja where`d you go ?
Lovely Sutralinga
Prometheus is getting cold
And old
To avoid confusion
I lean into a waterfall
Listening to temptation
Negotiate a movie deal
For a steal
Once upon a time I heard some pretty ugly lies
Said against my brother `twas a shame it was our mother
So goodbye Diane
I really hope that you will understand
Bye bye Baby

17 ...And They Will Never Know

On a starry island
On the scented sea sands
With my lover morning
And they will never know
And how you came to me
And kissed me passionately
And said don`t let it show
And they will never know
And
We are getting stronger
And we want the world to know
We are getting bolder
And we`ve got to let it show
And they must never know
And how I love you so
And how we rendezvous
And do what no-one else can
How you take my free hand
And say it will forever stand
But we must take it slow
And they will never know
And
We are getting stronger
And we want the world to know
We are getting freer
And we`ve got let it show
When you were a sister
Of loneliness in Shivaville
No Goobers no Raisinettes
No Miracles no Marvelettes
When I was a solo boy
I breathed into the atmosphere
My yearning for a woman
Now I collapse into your smile
Om Nameh Sivayeh
Om my darling!
On a starry island
On the scented sea sands
With my lover morning
And they will never know
And how you came to me
And kissed me passionately
And said don`t let it show
And they will never know
And

18 Sayin` About You

After having listened to
So many rumours in Colorado
After having spoken to
So many strangers in Corcovado
It made me feel the midnight blue
Do you know what they are sayin’ about you?
Do you know what they are sayin’?
Or do you really care?
After having heard the stories
Grow with each telling
In certain quarters
Noses growing, tongues are flowing
It`s so compelling
It`s crossing borders
But maybe none of it is true
Do you know what they are sayin’ about you?
Do you know what they are sayin’?
Or do you really care?
After having listened to
So many rumours in Colorado
After having spoken with
So many strangers in Corcovado
It made me feel the midnight blue
Do you know what they are sayin’ about you?
Do you know what they are sayin’?
Or do you really care?

19 Shadows

Yes the beat goes on
And it bounces with electric rhythm
Yes my love goes on
Intermingling with your magnetism
I’m not afraid to be
Whatever you might need
I want you to succeed
I’ll be standing here beside you
Till the birds no longer fly
Till the ocean beds run dry
Till your shadows disappear
Till the sun begins to frost
Till the need for love is lost
Till your shadows disappear
Yes the light stays on
Waiting patiently for your attention
Yes my waters run
Even moon rays yearn for your affection
I’m not afraid to be
Whatever you might need
I want you to succeed
I’ll be standing here beside you
Till the sea refuses the rain
Till the angels complain
Till your shadows disappear
Till the sun surrenders to frost
Till the need for love is lost
Till your shadows disappear
Yes my love is strong
I will roll it for you
If you don’t smoke it!
Till the birds no longer fly
Till the ocean beds run dry
Till your shadows disappear
Till the sun surrenders to frost
Till the need for love is lost
Till your shadows disappear

Windows

The lamb says: “bah bah bah bah bah bah
bah bah bah bah bah bah”• And should I fall away
There’ll be no more to say
I’ll step aside from hoping
And travel through my open windows
The moment steals my soul
My eyelids do unfold
It appears that I’ve awoken
I’ll walk on through my open windows
The worries that you carried
Blowing in the breeze
The spirit that you are
Floating on the seasons
Floating on the seasons
And should I fall away
And stay beyond the fray
I will come to you unspoken
And help you through your open windows
Your windows

I’m in a zone
The wind removes
What I don’t own
Beat my drum
And lay back some
And blow my dream
Like bubble gum
You don’t need permission to

Love Can You Hear Me?

Love can you hear me?
I’m calling to you
Beyond the fields of Avalon
I found a new lover
It’s her I lay my lips upon
When my emotions uncover
Even when she’s far away
Beyond my fences
I know that she will never stray
Beyond my senses
Love can you hear me?
I’m calling to you
When her kisses touch my soul
I feel embraced by the diva
And then my spirit unfolds
And shakes me like Shiva
Beyond the gates of Babylon
I found a new lover
It’s her I lay my lips upon
When my emotions uncover
Love can you hear me?
I’m calling to you
My heart is on the line

Reflecting

Reflecting the still of the water
Reflecting the silvery sky
Reflecting the stars in the galaxy
Are you and I
It`s been said that some mystery
Is essential if in love you wanna be
If that is true then she is my stigma
But I don`t mind loving an enigma
Reflecting the still of the water
Reflecting the sun as it shines
Reflecting the moon in her solitude
Are you and I
I have learned that my intuition
Is a guide to my souls` ambition
And I know that fear is a liar
It will keep you from soaring higher
Reflecting the still of the water
Reflecting the love in your sigh
Reflecting the u in the universe
Are you and I
You can go and find a mirror
And love will let you see her
Then your eyes will open clearly
`Cause everything is merely
Reflecting the still of the water
Reflecting the silvery sky
Reflecting the stars in the galaxy
Are you and I

Benediction: Sugar Ray

When I look into your eyes
I see gods light trying to find me
And the troubles of the world
Cease to be as I find myself inside of me
And when the mind is still
We know that everything was meant to be
Sweet like Sugar Ray
Like a nuclear soul that quickly rises
Then measures itself by how deep it falls
Seeking only the allegiance of a breeze
And landing on the black stripes of a zebra
And when the mind is still
We know that everything was meant to be
Sweet like Sugar Ray
My darling tender
To your insecurities
Do not surrender
I know that you are 10 pounds overweight
And yet though I do notice I soon forget
I covet you when your thighs are thin
And I lust for you when your ass is fat
And though your worries stem with regard to fashion
They can never subdue the weight of my passion
`Cause everything was meant to be sweet like Sugar Ray

Paradise Postponed

Paradise postponed once again
The bird of love has flown once again
She was swept away by another broom
It blew up in an afternoon, boom!
Her shelter was once my shade
Her bottom lip my silk and suede
Her tender moan my serenade
Soon I’ll have found another one
To sing to when the day is done
Paradise postponed once again
Beneath the moon alone once again
The voice that leaves her lips like flame
Have grown into another name, boom!!
Her laughter was once my wine
Her memory seduced my mind
With whispers shadows leave behind
Soon I’ll have found another one
To sing to when the day is done
Paradise postponed once again
The bird of love has flown once again
She was swept away by another broom
It blew up in an afternoon
BOOM!!!
