Set Her Free

Album Artwork - Montagu Square - Set Her Free

This song is a warning for lovers in arms causing us harm
Don't try to lock beauty inside your palm, inside your palm
Cos if you think that she's all yours darling
you’re wrong, darling so wrong
She belongs to the night-time, belongs to no one

So it you love her set her free
To be just what she needs, needs to be
And if you love her let her be
Anything she needs, needs to be

Your love hung like iron heavy on me, eternally
No room to manoeuvre in your jealousy, your jealousy  
And you'd say it was normal, to test me like this, test me like this
And try to convince me that's what love is - is that what love is?

Cos if you thought that I was all yours
darling you're wrong, darling so wrong
And I was meant to teach you that we belong to no one

So it you love me set me free
To be just what I need, need to be
And if you love me let me be
Anything I need, need to be

Set her free.png

So it you love me set me free
To be just what I need, need to be
And if you love me let me be
Anything I need, need to be

If you thought that I was all yours
darling you're wrong, darling so wrong
I was meant to teach you that we belong to no one

Battleships

We tried more than seventeen times to keep this ship intact
Nothing felt as strong as us but now our hull is cracked
We tried to stay afloat and tried to make it back
Safety light was just in sight then everything went black

And now the fear's sinking our battleships tonight
There's nothing left unscathed I hate to say you're right
There's too much storm to see the light behind your eye
Is this the end or should I throw you a line?

You told me one thousand times you don't know why we stay together
If loving me’s some kind of chore you don't need to work for me baby
And every time we rocked a little you'd be the first to jump the ship
Darling it breaks me inside to know we're so ill-equipped oh oh oh oh

And now the fear's sinking our battleships tonight
There's nothing left unscathed I hate to say you're right
There's too much storm to see the light behind your eye
Is this the end or will you throw me a line?

I can't try anymore, anymore
To keep float with you, with you
I can't try anymore, anymore
When it's not getting through
When it's not getting through

 

Now the fear's sinking our battleships tonight
There's nothing left unscathed I hate to say you're right
There's too much storm to see the light behind your eye
This is the end darling, the end of the line

From Green To Red

Beatie Wolfe at the Barbican

Outside the people like cars are still running
when inside it’s safe to deny that it’s coming,
and the TV’s turned up, so the winds are just humming
to the sound of the heat rising

We don’t want to hear that the problem is us
so we live like we want in our own universe
because man thinks he’s God in a devilish way,
and we’re too proud to see what we won’t even say:
We don’t want to know
Don’t want to know
Don’t want to know
Don’t want to know

So take my hand babe and I’ll walk you to school
where you’ll learn how to live by a new set of rules
because we’ve played all our cards, they’re none left for you
Forgive us my dear, can’t you see it’s the truth:
We don’t want to know
Don’t want to know
Don’t want to know
Don’t want to know

What happened to love - is it out of date?
Turn back, turn back
There’s so much here to save

What happened to love - is it out of date?
Turn back, turn back
Don’t live like it’s too late

Murder is only defined by mankind
but the creatures don’t know for what cause they have died
so we wipe off our hands on the furs and the hide;
We sit at the top with our great piece of mind

We don’t want to know
Don’t want to know
Don’t want to know
Don’t want to know

So remember denial is a haunt of the head
let your eyes and your heart guide your reason instead
when the hungry are starved, the full are still fed
As we sit at the crossroads the Green turns to Red

We don’t want to know
Don’t want to know
Don’t want to know
Don’t want to know

What happened to love - is it out of date?
Turn back, turn back
Don’t live like it’s too late

What happened to love - is it out of date?
Turn back, turn back
There’s so much here to save

Turn back…

Take Me Home

The wild winds they weep, the night unfolds
Creep beneath my sheet, evade the cold
Below behold the rage of our burning age
and suffocate the storm with our howling song

So if the sky would crash and tumble, crash and tumble now
and if the sun should suddenly implode
I'll still be here waiting patiently for you
to take me home

Like a fiend in a cloud, I walk alone
a dog amongst those hounds, without a bone
Above a line of stars alight my path
Please whisper something sweet: sing me to sleep

So if the sky would crash and tumble, crash and tumble now
and if the sun should suddenly implode
I'll still be here waiting patiently for you
to take me home

The wild winds they'll weep, the night unfolds
Oh creep beneath my sheet, evade the cold
Below behold the rage of our burning age
Let’s keep each other warm with this howling song

So if the sky would crash and tumble, crash and tumble now
and if the sun should suddenly implode
I'll still be here waiting faithfully my dear
To take you home, to take you home

This Love

Moo - Album Artwork - Montagu Square - 5. This Love - Text Side_144.jpg

Darling I see the stars outside my window
and I wish you were by my side
Please be the only one who will release me
from my heartache, from my pride

Because I will love you all my life
and I will always tell you so
and you will always be my friend until the end
and I will always be your girl

So darling pray that everyday
We'll grow strong together - guided by our faith
and love and grace
because now we have found it
who'd live without this love
without this love
without this love

Darling you give me something to believe in
when I'm shaking, in my skin
Please be the only one who I come home to -
every night time, let me in

Because I have loved you all my life
And how I love to tell you so
And you will always be that spark inside my heart
And I will always be your world

 

So darling pray with everyday
We'll grow strong together guided by our Faith
and Love and Grace
because now we have found it who'd live without this
without This Love
without This Love

Simply Friends

Remember when we were simply friends
sometimes more in my head, but now
here we are underneath these sheets -
something changed in between

Out for lunch we would let it spill
candid talk as we split the bill but now
here we are staring longingly -
something changed was it me?

I'll never forget how it felt to be your friend
and I'll never regret taking time to climb in bed with you

I know love is dangerous
when sprung too young or based on lust, but I
always knew from the start with us
we were made of deeper stuff

Darling you to me are something rare
a beauty inside that does not compare - Oh heart
do you fool me? No, you wouldn't dare!
This love is no affair

 

So I'll never forget how it felt to be your friend
and I'll never regret taking time to climb in bed
No I'll never forget when we were simply friends
and I'll never regret taking time for it to change
With you

To Be Saved

To Be Saved by Beatie Wolfe - Photo Sean Watson

A man runs a cafe
it started in the back
That day, that day

A girl of thirteen
worked to keep the kitchen clean
in the back of the cafe

He made her dress up well
because good looks can really sell
But don’t tell (don’t tell)

And he always liked to stare
while she tied up her hair
and say, and say:

We are all forgotten
We are all depraved
We are all imperfect
But we will all be saved

When her mother ran away
from the bills she had to pay
one day, one day

He took her to his flat
that was just behind the cafe
to stay, to stay

And sometimes he would be rough, 
if she’d say that it’s enough
it’s tough, so tough

And his face full of love
with a voice from above
would say, would say:

We are all forgotten
We are all depraved
We are all imperfect
But we will all be saved

So the years went past
and she grew up fast -
they say, they say

And soon the guys from the cafe
started coming round the back
to play, to play

So she worked and she worked
and hid the money in the dirt
for a day - for what day?

But the bruises on her thighs
even dirt could not disguise
so she’d say, she’d say:

We are all forgotten
We are all depraved
We are all imperfect
But we will all be saved

She pulled up to work
with a barrel down her skirt
what a flirt, what a flirt!

And with her high heels on
she shot him in the back
Like that - like that

And when the men said, “Wow -
we didn’t think that you could do it.”
She just laughed

She said: “My whole goddamn life
was about shooting that bullet -
I had to do it, because:

We are all forgotten
We are all depraved
We are all imperfect
But we will not be saved

We are all forgotten
We are all depraved
We are all imperfect
But we will not be saved

Need Somebody

When I grow up know that I'll make my own mistakes
And if I slip up please be the rock that doesn't shake
Don't you know we need somebody, just somebody to take our hand
Don't you know we need somebody, somebody who will understand

When I grow old please stay by me as I fade
And if I grow cold please be the flame that holds the faith
Don't you know we need somebody, just somebody to take our hand
Don't you know we need somebody, somebody who will understand

Darling oh if I stray from the one that you love
Darling no I won't drift too far from your arms
Darling you bring me back to myself, to myself
Darling you're that someone who will make me go on

When I grow weak please lay by me as a friend
And if I can't speak know that I'll love you til the end
Don't you know that you're somebody:
My somebody who understands

Don't you know that you're somebody
Somebody now until the end

 

Darling oh if I stray from the one that you love
Darling no I won't drift too far from your arms
Darling you bring me back to myself, to myself
Darling you're that someone who will make me live on
Darling you're my someone who will make me live on
