BOZ SCAGGS


Sweet Release Lyrics

I was born
On a side road far from here
While the town was burning
Out my dark window

I was crowned
With a cage of cold barbed-wire
And my bottle
I keep with me
Even till now

Curse my pain
Curse the sunrise every dawn
Oh yeah
Oh those sidewalks ran me ragged
Yeah those cracks my only guide.. oh

Long for midnight
Long for darkness sweet release..oh yes
Beg the alleys
For your endless time to cease

Screaming blackbird on my shoulder
Mark my nearness to his youth.. oh
Left my senses reeling
As he cried "I understand you".. oh

Try the handle
Try the doorway try the path
Try to enter.. to enter
And to find some solace there
Oh there

In this clearing
You'll find nothing but a song
Give it breath give it sunshine
And with you it will belong.. oh belong

It will whisper
It will stir a gentle breeze
It's hands are your hands
They will take you where you please
If you please

Will you choose to be gentle
Its just your life whatever you feel
Are we blind for a reason
Or is it just to make it real.. oh real

Show me do
Give me seashells for my ears
Tell your neighbours.. oh
And forgive them for their fears
