The Guests Lyrics
One by one, the guests arrive,
The guests are coming through,
The open-hearted many,
The broken-hearted few,

And no-one knows where the night is going,
And no-one knows why the wine is flowing,
Oh love, I need you,
I need you,
I need you,
I need you, oh,
I need you now,

And those who dance, begin to dance,
Those who weep begin,
And ‘Welcome, welcome’ cries a voice,
And all my guests come in,

And no-one knows where the night is going,
And no-one knows why the wine is flowing,
Oh love, I need you,
I need you,
I need you,
I need you, oh,
I need you now,

And all go through stumbling through that house,
In lonely secrecy,
Saying ‘Do reveal yourself’,
Or ‘Why has thou forsaken me?’,

And no-one knows where the night is going,
And no-one knows why the wine is flowing,
Oh love, I need you,
I need you,
I need you,
I need you, oh,
I need you now,

All at one the torches flare,
The inner door flies open,
One by one, they enter there,
In every style of passion,

And no-one knows where the night is going,
And no-one knows why the wine is flowing,
Oh love, I need you,
I need you,
I need you,
I need you, oh,
I need you now,

And here they take their sweet repast,
While house and grounds dissolve,
And one by one the guests are cast,
Beyond the garden wall,

And no-one knows where the night is going,
And no-one knows why the wine is flowing,
Oh love, I need you,
I need you,
I need you,
I need you, oh,
I need you now,

Those who dance, begin to dance,
Those who weep begin,
Those who earnestly are lost,
Are lost and lost again,

And no-one knows where the night is going,
And no-one knows why the wine is flowing,
Oh love, I need you,
I need you,
I need you,
I need you, oh,
I need you now,

One by one, the guests arrive,
The guests are coming through,
The broken-hearted many,
The open hearted few,

And no-one knows where the night is going,
And no-one knows why the wine is flowing,
Oh love, I need you,
I need you,
I need you,
I need you, oh,
I need you now.

Came So Far For Beauty Lyrics
I came so far for beauty
I left so much behind
My patience and my family
My masterpiece unsigned
I thought I'd be rewarded
For such a lonely choice
And surely she would answer
To such a very hopeless voice
I practiced all my sainthood
I gave to one and all
But the rumours of my virtue
They moved her not at all
I changed my style to silver
I changed my clothed to black
And where I would surrender
Now I would attack

I stormed the old casino
For the money and the flesh
And I myself decided
What was rotten and what was fresh
And men to do my bidding
And broken bones to teach
The value of my pardon
The shadow of my reach
But no, I could not touch her
With such a heavy hand
Her star beyond my order
Her nakedness unmanned
I came so far for beauty
I left so much behind
My patience and my family
My masterpiece unsigned

The Traitor Lyrics
Now the Swan it floated on the English river
Ah the Rose of High Romance it opened wide
A sun tanned woman yearned me through the summer
and the judges watched us from the other side

I told my mother "Mother, I must leave you
preserve my room but do not shed a tear
Should rumour of a shabby ending reach you
it was half my fault and half the atmosphere"

But the Rose I sickened with a scarlet fever
and the Swan I tempted with a sense of shame
She said at last I was her finest lover
and if she withered I would be to blame

The judges said you missed it by a fraction
rise up and brace your troops for the attack
Ah the dreamers ride against the men of action
Oh see the men of action falling back

But I lingered on her thighs a fatal moment
I kissed her lips as though I thirsted still
My falsity had stung me like a hornet
The poison sank and it paralysed my will

I could not move to warn all the younger soldiers
that they had been deserted from above
So on battlefields from here to Barcelona
I'm listed with the enemies of love

And long ago she said "I must be leaving,
Ah but keep my body here to lie upon
You can move it up and down and when I'm sleeping
Run some wire through that Rose and wind the Swan"

So daily I renew my idle duty
I touch her here and there - I know my place
I kiss her open mouth and I praise her beauty
and people call me traitor to my face

Our Lady Of Solitude Lyrics
All summer long she touched me
She gathered in my soul
From many a thorn, from many thickets
Her fingers, like a weaver's
Quick and cool

And the light came from her body
And the night went through her grace
All summer long she touched me
And I knew her, I knew her
Face to face

And her dress was blue and silver
And her words were few and small
She is the vessel of the whole wide world
Mistress, oh mistress, of us all

Dearly dead; Queen of Solitude
I thank you with my heart
for keeping me so close to thee
while so many, oh so many, stood apart

And the light came from her body
And the night went through her grace
All summer long she touched me
I knew her, I knew her
Face to face

The Smokey Life Lyrics
I've never seen your eyes so wide
I've never seen your appetite quite this occupied
Elsewhere is your feast of love
I know... where long ago we agreed to keep it light
So let's be married one more night

It's light enough, light enough
To let it go
It's light enough to let it go

Remember when the scenery started fading
I held you til you learned to walk on air
So don't look down the ground is gone,
there's no one waiting anyway
The Smoky Life is practiced
Everywhere

So set your restless heart at ease
Take a lesson from these Autumn leaves
They waste no time waiting for the snow
Don't argue now you'll be late
There is nothing to investigate

It's light enough, light enough
To let it go
Light enough to let it go

Remember when the scenery started fading
I held you til you learned to walk on air
So don't look down the ground is gone,
there's no one waiting anyway
The Smoky Life is practiced everywhere

Come on back if the moment lends
You can look up all my very closest friends

It's light enough, light enough
To let it go
It's light enough to let it go

Ballad Of The Absent Mare Lyrics
Say a prayer for the cowboy
His mare's run away
And he'll walk til he finds her
His darling, his stray
but the river's in flood
and the roads are awash
and the bridges break up
in the panic of loss

And there's nothing to follow
There's nowhere to go
She's gone like the summer
gone like the snow
And the crickets are breaking
his heart with their song
as the day caves in
and the night is all wrong

Did he dream, was it she
who went galloping past
and bent down the fern
broke open the grass
and printed the mud with
the iron and the gold
that he nailed to her feet
when he was the lord

And although she goes grazing
a minute away
he tracks her all night
he tracks her all day
Oh blind to her presence
except to compare
his injury here
with her punishment there

Then at home on a branch
in the highest tree
a songbird sings out
so suddenly
Ah the sun is warm
and the soft winds ride
on the willow trees
by the river side

Oh the world is sweet
the world is wide
and she's there where
the light and the darkness divide
and the steam's coming off her
she's huge and she's shy
and she steps on the moon
when she paws at the sky

And she comes to his hand
but she's not really tame
She longs to be lost
he longs for the same
and she'll bolt and she'll plunge
through the first open pass
to roll and to feed
in the sweet mountain grass

Or she'll make a break
for the high plateau
where there's nothing above
and there's nothing below
and it's time for the burden
it's time for the whip
Will she walk through the flame
Can he shoot from the hip

So he binds himself
to the galloping mare
and she binds herself
to the rider there
and there is no space
but there's left and right
and there is no time
but there's day and night

And he leans on her neck
and he whispers low
"Whither thou goest
I will go"
And they turn as one
and they head for the plain
No need for the whip
Ah, no need for the rein

Now the clasp of this union
who fastens it tight?
Who snaps it asunder
the very next night
Some say the rider
Some say the mare
Or that love's like the smoke
beyond all repair

But my darling says
"Leonard, just let it go by
That old silhouette
on the great western sky"
So I pick out a tune
and they move right along
and they're gone like the smoke
and they're gone like this song
