OCEAN HOME

within your slumber
I'll wait till you come back
you've set foot upon the lands
but you'll be mine in the end

marry with good will
let her bear your little children
I hope they are strong ones
I hope you'll hold their brittle hands

dry the tears they weep
and let them keep you warm
you know you'll only sleep
in my cold velvet arms

let your marionettes dance
on a song of romance
on someone else's song of love
say it is good enough

make her sigh
all the gasps of delight
slide in her arms and kisses
as if it's where your heart is

parade with your bride
her veil a crispy white
it frames her pretty face
like the foam on my waves

you know it's home
it's still all home
it's just home when you see the sea
that's why your heart belongs to me

you know it's home
it's still all home
I'm your home, I am the sea
you're only home when you're with me

you know it's home
it's still all home
you'll come back to my heart of blue
so I'll be the death of you

you know your home
it's still all home
you'll rush back to my bed
so I'll be your death

STRINGS ATTACHED

under the lantern that is the moon
I'll make you dance to my desire
a silver shadow play till break of dawn
till I let go of the wires

from my hands the rope pays out
from my hands the cords pull
from my fingers new lines in your back
all my strings attached to you

oh my sweet marionette
take every step I command
oh my sweet marionette
every night over again

under the lantern that is the moon
I'll make you fiddle to fill my mouth
a silver shadow play for life or death
till muffled our music and sound

on my knees your ball room
at my feet a beggar's hat
for nickle to roll and copper to clatter
all my strings attached to you

oh my sweet marionette
I take every step and command
dance when I move
dance when I move

AAVETANGO

rakkaus on armoton
kohtaloni onneton
miks menin rakastumaan
mieheen niin kovin julmaan
miks ajauduimme kulmaan
turvautui hän surmaan

periksi anna en
usvasta lammen
aaveena nousen
vuoksi rakkauden en
jätä sua rauhaan
vien kanssani hautaan

rakkautta vaan
mä vielä sut saan
rakkautta vaan
mä vielä sut saan

saavuit empien
lauluni kultainen
vetää sut vetehen
kosto niin suloinen
et vastustaa voi
se tuhosi toi

muut periksi anna en
usvasta lammen
aaveena nousen
vuoksi rakkauden en
jätä sua rauhaan
vien kanssani hautaan

rakkautta vaan
mä vielä sut saan
rakkautta vaan
mä vielä sut saan
