Talk to me tell me all your dreams, I will share mine if you talk to me Walk with me down to where the water feeds the vine come, walk with me Through fields of joy and pleasure we'll stroll at leisure to the sea Sunset is our golden treasure we'll talk of treasure still to see These things could be if you walk with me Sing with me sing in harmony with me and rhyme when you sing with me Dance with me move my body gently, be divine when you dance with me To the rhythm of the oceans heartbeat know that we'll learn each step in time For our inspiration we'll have constant celebration on our minds You'd dance beautifully if you'd dance with me You'd sing heavenly if you'd sing with me... Your eyes are clear as water you're the oceans daughter, oh please be mine I come to you in peace I would be your's if you're so inclined And we could find that we're of one mind yes we could find that we're two of a kind Two of a kind... Drink to me toast my health to me as I toast to you and your beauty too Fly with me lose yourself in the freedom of the air free from care Take a line to the planets let the universe provide for us in space You're a shooting star I feel a comet's glow each time that I see your face Take my hand and see if you fly with me You're at liberty - to talk to me You can talk to me You can talk to me You can talk to me

I travelled to Buxton to busk under changeable skies a week had passed since my beautiful loving surprise I'd fallen, I fell then I landed, black thoughts exorcised and the last time I saw her, she had tears in her eyes Lately I tell you it's hard to think of leaving cos I'd miss you a peacock feather surviving the weather that whips you I'm counting the hours until once again I can kiss you feelings no longer denied - love under changeable skies I first met Hayley with her ukulele that night I'd seen her around, she'd seen me and she found me alright She told me to worry, I didn't put up much of a fight and to all of the friends that we know, we were nowhere in sight Lately I tell you it's hard to think of leaving cos I'd miss you a peacock feather surviving the weather that whips you I'm counting the hours until once again I can kiss you feelings no longer denied - love under changeable skies I'd set myself up as a travelling man no ties to the people, no ties to this land She had a family and music and laughter and she believed in a love ever after My 'phone's on her table we haven't been able to speak almost for the first time in nearly one week Now I'm on the bus, I'm travelling to Macc Hayley 'kulele, I'm coming back I'm coming back now Hayley Lately I tell you it's hard to think of leaving cos I'd miss you a peacock feather surviving the weather that whips you I'm counting the hours until once again I can kiss you feelings no longer denied - love under changeable skies

Shades of blue will fade into my mind silken black falls soft and pure I can only dream that you are mine imagine we're together when you have gone so far Did you ever listen to my gallery did you ever wonder what I meant by feeling free did you ever wonder about me just how much I loved you wanting you to see It feels good to love you, having you around but here I am with both feet firmly on the ground I would I could lie with you, warm in love I'd found but when comes the morning I must leave without a sound Shades of love will fly around my mind while words of friendship make me unsure and I can only dream that you are mine I can only dream that you are mine I can only dream of touching stars

I don't need Pride if it's going to mean a big fall I don't need faith if it's based upon a false idol I don't need you to come on twisting my brain with the games that you play - I'm not playing games with you pull yourself through I don't need friends if they're only for fairweather I don't need a mate if it means too much time togeher and I don't need you to come on twisting my brain with your tears and your pain - I can't take the pain for you pull yourself through But I could handle love - all through the night a little bit of love makes everything alright and baby it's alright I don't need a cause if it's one I don't believe in I don't need laws, I don't intend to be a victim and I don't need you to come on twisting my brain with your fears and your shame - I'm not ashamed of you honey pull yourself through But I could handle love - all through the night a little bit of love makes everything alright and baby it's alright I'll take time if it's time we're both agreed on and I'll take peace and quiet sitting in a warm sun I'll even take love if its not twisting your brain with the games that you play - I'm not playing games with you pull yourself through and I'll take love if its not twisting your brain with the tears and the pain - I can take the pain for you pull yourself through and I could handle love if its not twisting your brain with the fears and the shame - I'm not ashamed of you you got to pull your - you better pull your You got to pull yourself through

When I started this journey - when I started this trip I wasn't looking for money, I was just trying to get a grip on where my journey was leading - on where my trip would end in a pool of blood bleeding, here lies my very best friend I didn't think that it was loaded, I didn't think that it would shoot so I went and got loaded, I didn't think that sober would suit a man with blood on his hands, a man with blood on his mind a man in need of redemption, a man with no peace of mind it's like there's demons in me I feel there's demons in me I look in your eyes and see I look in your eyes and see the demons in me She wasn't really an angel but she's with them now looking down from up in the sky, playing harp on a big white cloud I'm sorry Angel for shooting you down in flames I'm sorry Angel for leaving and I know there's only me to blame and as I finish this journey, as I finish my trip I still ain't got no money and I've only got a tenuous grip I've taken pictures of my heroes, I've got a snapshot of you I said goodbye to all my heroes, I can't say goodbye to you it's like there's demons in me I feel there's demons in me I look in your eyes and see I look in your eyes and see the demons in me and as I finish this journey, as I finish my trip Lord knows I still ain't got no money and I've only got a tenuous grip I've taken pictures of my heroes, I've got a snapshot of you I said goodbye to all my heroes, I said goodbye to all my heroes, I said goodbye to all my heroes, I can't say goodbye, I can't say goodbye I can't say goodbye to you

I had the blues as I woke up this morning, a night through which I struggled to sleep I dreamt that I heard my children calling from a darkness cold and deep I once was indifferent to loving, a condition against which I would preach never ever satisfied cos I was too stratified. Loving was always out of reach

about

John McColm Macclesfield, UK

John is an independant musician from the UK. Apprenticed in 2000 for three years as a street musician, he now plays a set born from the need to play 'songs people know' whilst remaining true to his own musical instincts. Known in Macclesfield and Aschaffenburg', his music holds the listener in a spell primarily based on rhythm but ultimately cast by the intensity of the vocal performance. ... more
