Lyrics and words

Raymonde

No One Can Hold A Candle To You

Say farewell to your fairweather friends
And not a second too soon
To leave a life among ruins
Oh there was nothing left but to
Cut ourselves loose
These fascists and philistines
Of violence and fashion,
These modern day philistines
They stamped stand on your hands
They stamped stand on my hands
Any day now we’ll perish
These are nervous times

No one can hold a candle to you
When it comes down to virtue and truth
No one can hold a candle to you
And I, darling, dim next to you

No one can hold a candle to you
When it comes down to old-fashioned virtue
Kingdom mine
Open your eyes
Make up your mind
I’ll be Einstein
Or Frankenstein
You said blow them away
To kingdom come
Or will the kingdom be one?

No one can hold a candle to you
When it comes down to virtue and truth
No one, no one can hold a candle to you
And I, darling, darling, I dim next to you

Been Too Many Years

Little Miss Perpendicular
Came up to my room
Wearing a red bandana
I don’t want to join the party

Kiss me, oh be my, be my baby
We can steal away
We go out to play their game
We can steal away to write a day
Write a day

Oh, it’s been too many years
I need some loving arms around me
I need some loving arms around me
I need you around

When I gaze out into the universe
There’s no wonder there for me
And maybe with you

I’ll acquaint myself
With her mystical dark sides
We can steal away
We don’t have to play their game
We can steal away to write a day
Write a day

Oh, it’s been too many years
I need some loving arms around me
I need some loving arms around me
I need you around me

Kiss me, be my, be my baby
We can steal away
We don’t have to play their game
We can steal away to write a day
Write a day

Oh, it’s been too many years
I need some loving arms around me
I need some loving arms around me
I need you around

Ohh…

Stop Kicking My Heart Around

Stop kicking my heart around
I don’t want to be weighed down
With responsibilities
And love intervention
And a conservative convention

Chaining me down
Don’t try to take me over
Self-preservation you’ll see
Won’t permit me to lose my sensibilities

Stop kicking my heart around
Remember you’re not big enough, baby
Stop kicking my heart around
Remember you’re not big enough, babe

You’ve got a soul of stone
Clever boys, you bring them home
And try to turn man to mountain
Break them up when you’re alone

So where are you now?
Discover what they
They’ve thrown your dust away
At the first opportunity
Now you are alone

Stop kicking my heart around
Remember you’re not big enough, baby
Stop kicking my heart around
Remember you’re not big enough, babe

Stop kicking my heart around
Remember you’re not big enough, baby
Stop kicking my heart around
Remember you’re not big enough, big enough

Stop kicking my heart around
Remember you’re not big enough, baby
You’ve got a soul of stone
Stop kicking my heart around
