Lyrics: New England

 

Sanctuary (Written in 1991)

How I want you,
How I want your loving, girl
How I want your pretty smile.
Through the winter nights,
And the long hot summer days,
I drift and dream of you all the while.
 
And if you ever find yourself sold out
And if you're at the end of the line
You can find my sanctuary waiting
Don't worry girl, I won't let on.
 
How I want you,
How I want your loving, girl
Those sentimental signs in your stare
You look at me that way,
You wanna drive me crazy,
Now I'm walking on and thinking away.
 
And if you ever find yourself sold out
And if you're at the end of the line
You can find my sanctuary waiting
Don't worry girl, I won't let on.
 
No, I won't let on,
Please take my sanctuary
No, I won't let on,
Please take my sanctuary
Won't you hear me, darling?
Won't you hear me, darling?

Unheard Cry (Written in 1991)

Pretty baby, in your cradle,
Smiling sickly, hushed and still
Mama loves you, oh how she loves you,
But when you cry now, she cannot hear
And the lights go out on the carousel,
Infant innocent, so long, farewell.
 
Little sad eyes, looking for playthings,
But there's no brother to play with you
Stern faces gather, distant voices murmur
But no-one touches, no-one comes near
And the lights go out on the carousel,
Infant innocent, so long, farewell.
 
Hours pass slowly, restless turning
For there's no mother to heal your pain
Fading surely, you are returning,
But will it first be from a broken heart?
And the lights go out on the carousel,
Infant innocent, so long, farewell.
And the lights go out on the carousel,
Infant innocent, so life, farewell.
