Black Rose 03:03
I was the skin for your thorns The pale light for your bloom Black rose I was the blood for your earth The twilight in your poison Black rose Across the mark of unlit roads black rose I wait for you where no one goes black rose I was the undecided conscience borne The fragment of a shattered sun black rose I was the last of the good You have left me without name black rose I loved and I love you still I want you but I have lost my will

I was only a tide apart Only as close as fingers touch I was only an age away Only as near as tongues can taste But the whole plane shattered for me Gone with every little thing I see I know that i've never been apart from you And I know that i've never been apart from you I was only a wing apart Only as pressed as arms can hold I was only one breeze north Only as joined as limbs can take You were only a whisper down Only as far as pleasure breaks You were only the crying gone Only as high as voices reach

Three words of a love song Lie broken across the scene Tangled up parts A whole i've never seen One line from the story Lies missing from the verse Three words i lost Regretfully unrehearsed So where should i go For all the things i don't know Where should i leap For the good faith I can't keep Letters to a love song Three words and they were set A ring around a promise The hope we never let Words to you I coudn't speak Are gone without a trace Three words unsaid The gaps I can't replace So where should i go For all the things i don't know Where should i leap For the good faith I can't keep

Was is circumstance or was it fate The day your lips met mine Will it be fortune or even bad luck I'll know before it's time If your love should turn dead as stone Stop this fire consuming me alone So tired of falling here come the calling But still you won't reply Weary of waiting yours for the taking I've nowhere left to hide If your love should turn dead as stone Stop this fire consuming me alone I'm floating away hold me tight I'm drifting away feather light You're the unbroken and the unspoken name upon my tongue The unregrettable and the unforgettable knot that's come undone If your love should turn dead as stone Stop this fire consuming me alone I'm burning away hold me tight I'm drifting away feather light

It helps me to help myself It keeps me from getting lost It helps me keep the lines uncrossed When despair will brush her grey blue kiss The ache will fade like the morning mist Wide shut eyes I blindly see It turns me from turning on myself It wakes me from dream’s dull nest It turns me away wanting less When the poison leaves its violet trace The bruise will lift like dawn's embrace Wide shut eyes I blindly see

Nos coeurs battent au rythme de la marée Reste la marée reste la maree Les reves percent le voile et je me tais Reste a marier reste la mariée Mes pas perdent le sens du sentier Reste a trouver reste a trouver Mes mains touchent l'eau de la rosée Reste la rosée laisse la rosée La quete s'efface au pas des années Reste des années reste des années Tes lèvres m'effleurent ma bien aimée Ma bien aimée ma bien aimée Les feuilles tombent et je m'en vais Reste je m'en vais reste je m'en vais Les saisons passent je reviendrais Reste la maree reste la maree Tes lèvres m'effleurent ma bien aimée Ma bien aimée ma bien aimée Les saisons passent je reviendrais Reste la maree reste la maree

Pieces of ourselves we left behind When we made our way back across the great divide Pieces of ourselves we lost out on the track Each day the flame burns more candle in the wax Every path I've found opens up to you Shards of memories I sought to hide When we had no choice but to smother all the light Shards of truth uncomfortable within I kept their secret closed under the skin Every choice I made led me back to you When dreams are skin and skin is torn When kings have crowns and crowns have thorns Fragments and remains that flashed before us When we sought to fill all the spaces in the gaps Fragments that we hurled so hard into the breach I ran from the shock and then kept you out of reach Everything I've lost drives me back to you Pieces of me in word I spelt too late Now that the door is closed and I'm out on the street Pieces of me still remain yet to die Somewhere the truth was held hidden from our eyes Even the unknown still belongs to you When dreams are skin and skin is torn When kings have crowns and crowns have thorns When lives are thread and thread is worn When kings have crowns and crowns have thorns
8.
Come my girl in the corner Even wrapped up you're bare You move like wind on the water When the weather is fair Your pale mouth your weary sighs Your southern skin your dreamy cries Beginning at the end somehow Drawn to the ether now Come down my girl from your tower Your heart is here in the ground In the billowing grass and blooming wild flowers In the earth that's ploughed up and down Your dark green eyes your tiny feet Your slender waist your lover's heat Beginning at the end somehow Drawn to the ether now Come my girl in the corner Near the window framing the sky My hand on truth never another Come and together we'll lie Your honey tongue your quiet laugh Your perfect fit my long lost half Beginning at the end somehow Drawn to the ether now

Il Cammino 03:55
Ricordo una volta ma non quando Il tempo sai ti lascia andare Perché il passato fa male Forse e' il momento di partire Saprai non perdere il cammino? Saprai vedermi anche nel buio? Ti cercherò fatti trovare Ti aspetterò non mi abbandonare Di notte tornano i tuoi occhi Cieli azzurri dentro il mare Parlavi ma non sentivo voci Parole perse nel profondo Saprai non perdere il cammino? Saprai vedermi anche nel buio? Ti cercherò fatti trovare Ti aspetterò non mi abbandonare

I’m counting time on a pebbled shore I see it pass from some to more I throw a stone and a ripple's made I watch it grow until it fades The journey's hard and the path is long I walk the way that keeps me strong But even mountains end up as sand Upon the ground for us to stand A million rain drops are falling now Into the ocean they are bound A million circles on the surface placed They fade as fast as they are traced We are like water we are like stone We are of flesh we are of bone And when the tie is closed and drawn Like water and stone we are reborn

Piers Faccini France

If my songs were maps I'd want them to stretch from the English moors to the Saharan dunes via the plains of the Mediterranean.
