  1. Cream

From the recording In the Wake

Lyrics

Why must you carry the weight of the world?
Laden with worries you wear them like pearls,
Strung round your neck and then laced in your curls
What you hold as precious is killing you girl….

You can’t brood on the moon
And write your story in stone

Chorus:
Deep in the dark of your ocean of dreams
Lies the gem of your heart in its purest serene
Lift up the treasure and see what she sings
Aphrodesian elixir is the sweet of the cream

You trudge your way through the swamps of the land,
Then wait by the river – your heart in quicksand
Diamonds and rubies afloat on the Nile
But you will not claim them – they might make you smile….

You can’t brood on the moon
And write your story in stone

Chorus:
Deep in the dark of your ocean of dreams
Lies the gem of your heart in its purest serene
Lift up the treasure and see what she sings
Aphrodesian elixir is the sweet of the cream

Cast all your pearls into the fountain of youth
Rubies get ripe when you drown them in cream
Ladles of sapphires on the tips of your lips
Can’t you taste the blue in the ruby of green?
