Lyrics

NinnaMilner


There is a Crack


There is a crack in many a thing
The first is the one where you begin
Bloody thunder, flesh and death wheezing
A mom smiles and cries when life starts breathing


There is a crack in many a thing
Butterflies walk on thin ice and grin
Cocoons are left for an airy fling
In dreams I just switch a leg for a wing


A crack in the sea
The moment when you flee
An ocean, a key
In waves of indigo


There is a crack in many a thing
I know one where I will let you in
Between spicy herbs and petal skin
A swim in the light of eternal spring


There is a crack in many a thing
I bleed in the one where Cohen’s been
Between stylish lines of love and sin
The death of a man, the frame of a king


A crack in the sky
The moment when you fly
A grateful goodbye
In hues of indigo

Naked in the Rain


I’m on my balcony
So fresh and green
I’m out of money
And Benzedrine
I’m on my balcony
Have lost my shoes
Some love could maybe
Wipe out my blues


I’m on my balcony
A lover’s nest
The sky is bursting
Why not undress
I’m on my balcony
Just wearing dew
I spot somebody
Finding my shoes


Naked in the rain
My name is Mary Jane
Naked in the rain
Come and ease my pain


I’m on my balcony
As you come by
You’re such a cutie
When you say hi
I’m on my balcony
It’s late in June
I want you, baby
Under the moon


Naked in the rain
My name is Mary Jane
Naked in the rain
Come and ease my pain


I’m on my balcony
Get me some booze
I’m out of tonic
But full of juice
I’m on my balcony
Nothing to lose
Come up, hot baby
Bring me my shoes

Treasures of the Heart


I went to the doctor to tell him
My courage had lost the war
He talked about pills and the gym
My heart fell slowly to the floor


I ran out of wisdom and virtue
And went to the local bar
They sold me a fine old whisky
Sure to give me a youthful heart


Treasures of the heart
Show me where you are
I’ve been searching for you
Now I’m tired and blue
I really need you


I travelled to see a famous monk
He said: Please master your mind
Treasures sleep when you’re full of junk
They sleep in your heart when you’re blind

It’s not a Dream


When I look, it’s not a dream
Freckles make a fashion show
On your soft skin, in a long row
You will move and they will follow
Like companions on your ears
Even when we’re drinking beers


When I taste, it’s not a dream
Kisses from your lips exist
Like a landscape, like a forest
Let me stay here as a tourist
I will grab another spoon
Like the first girl on the moon


So what I see is not a dream
But, baby, you just seem to be
A kind of Buddha in disguise
And I’m taken by surprise


When I touch, it’s not a dream
Finding new land in your heart
Need no lantern, need no blue spark
I will find you in the deep dark
Now I know you are for real
Maybe more than I can feel


Did I tell You


Did I tell you what happened since then
Got a job a room and a friend
Lost it all, it was a bloody end
Please forgive me I couldn’t reply
When frozen fear blinded your eye
Was a teenager, stupid and shy


Did I tell you I wanted to write
Something dark, poetic and light
This is my life; a gift and a fight
Read your letter from when I was young
Felt your voice alive on my tongue
Wise and loving, a true cradle song


Did I tell you I had to pretend
That your death was never the end
Though I wanted to go where you went
Seasons did change but looked all the same
Burned away my very own name
With your blue skin and bones in the flames

Invisible to the Eye


There are trails in the sky
Where birds fly
But we can’t see them


There are paths in the sea
Where fish flee
But we can’t see them


So much life
Invisible to the eye
Let me look inside
For all the things that hide
My heart is open wide

Ready to try


There are marks on my skin
Where you’ve been
But we can’t see them


There are signs how to kiss
In the mist
But we can’t see them


So much life
Invisible to the eye
Let me look inside
For all the things that hide
My heart is open wide
Ready to try


There are worlds oh so deep
When we sleep
But we can’t see them


There are stars in my eyes
Where love hides
But we can’t see them


So much life
Invisible to the eye
Let me look inside
For all the things that hide
My heart is open wide
Ready to try
