Devil's in the Details

written by Sabiné Heusler-Schick © 2014 laddie artemesiablack

I would go anywhere with you
I'd go as far as you want me to
take a suitcase and a book
be as happy as by happy as by hook or crook
devil's in the details, god is in the bush
devil's in the details, god is in the bush

and here we go, towards that mountain
baggage in tow to find that fountain of youth

I would do anything for you
I'd go as far as I can go
and all I need the proof
be as happy as by happy as by foot or hoof
devil's in the details, god is in the bush
devil's in the details, god is in the bush

and here we go, towards that mountain
baggage in tow to find that fountain of youth
fountain of youth

When i was 13 I had a daydream,
lay on my bed and I stared at the ceiling
followed a whisper to a place,
a blanket of thorns soft under my feet, that went for miles and miles...

tree trunks like poles held canopy,
to keep in the cool and keep out the light
and all about rays pierced like knives, into the the green... and dirt

followed the whisper to a stream, shiny moss and a trickle
walking along over stumbling stones and a fog kept me under

then my eyes caught a pale white hand, catching water falling and to the arm a pale white cheek
and deepest red hair that embraced it, pale white shoulder, pale night dress... and dirt

and in a whisper clear and calm, from cherry lips all pert and round
she turned with eyes pale and worn.......

hope he does'nt find you here...

Spoken Dialogue:
"I'll make a taxidermy of your head" he said.... who says that?
"I'll come home when I am good and ready woman" he said... who says that?
"I'll throw you out and lock the door and you can go sleep with the dogs" he said... "you treat those dogs better than me" I said... and when he was up real close in my face... I look for any kinda good in them eyes... and all I see is black... I don't recognize myself in the mirror no more.... my eyes used to be a lovely shade of grey... when the all turned white?....

treat you like a dawg artemesiablack treat you like a dawg artemesiablack

ohoooo my darling ohoooo my darling young one
why do you shed a tear for him when you know that he's not the one
you know he don't love you like you think that he should
you know he's out chasing tail all around the neighbourhood
he treat you like a dawg... he treat you like a dawg

ohoooo my honey pie ohoooo my sweet young thing
why do you cry all night for him when he don't give you anything
you know he don't love you like you think that he should
you know that he'll never be the one that you think that he could
he treat you like a dawg... he treat you like a dawg

you know he don't love you like you think that he should
you know he'll never be the man that you think that he could
he treat you like dawg... he treat you like dawg

Look at yourself in the mirror tonight
do you see what you've become.....
you're better than that
you're better than that
you're better than that
you're better than that

Laddie

written by Sabiné Heusler-Schick © 2011 laddie artemesiablack

I drowned in the sound of your wonderful bickering
that lasted all night till the moon lost it's glow
she wandered the streets with her hair all a fluttering
in the wind as it blew to the south, laddie don't go

mind over matter and starry skies lingering
he wears the hat of the master of vines
hang my head over the bright orange rafters
she bends like the reeds of her watery greed, laddie don't go

Find me a finger that points to the outcast
strangers who walk with the gait of a mule
I'll find a penny under buckets of rain fall
before I let one more tiny bird fall, laddie don't go,

lights a cigarette, takes another sip
yellow the light falls on finger tips, he takes another sip
taken to leaning on the gas lights, he stumbles he stumbles he stumbles he stumbles, laddie don't go, stumbles, he stumbles, he stumbles, he stumbles, he stumbles, he stumbles, he stumbles, laddie don't go, laddie don't go.

Legs legs artemesiablack

written by Sabiné Heusler-Schick © 2011

I knew her who's smile glittered like pearls
and the sun set deep in her eyes eyes
she lies now muddied withered and cold
on a deserted steep hill side side side side

The birds don't sing anymore
she sits all cold and alone
waiting to be adorned
with a garland to her head head head head

Anguish and pain set steep in the stain
reminder of love's deep dispair
one brandishing the sword of the ugliest words
that pieced her heart and mind mind mind mind

The birds don't sing anymore
she sits all cold and alone
waiting to be adorned
with a garland to her head head head head

He left her and ran thinking he can forget and remember no more
but she got her revenge when torment and rage his next lover cut off his legs!

You said something like
i dont think that i can do it
i know i askmuch too much of your head
but we were falling
we were falling right out of the blue right into it...

rosie, rosie how long will you deny me
take my hand we're out of here
we'll take the train far
to the country by the sea

rosie rosie how long will you deny me
you lost your head back in spain
you blame me
but its just a country by the sea

Before I Met Youlegs artemesiablack

written by Sabiné Heusler-Schick © 2011

Before I met you I was cool
believe it or not
you would have liked me then
Before I met you I was strong
you should have seen me moving mountains,
you would have loved me then
now we fight all night and day
and I dont like what I've become
now I stray all day from dreams
I had when I could conquered them
you would have wanted me then

Before I met you I was a fool
believed in love and gave up to it everything
Before I met you I could see how life would be
with you and I and we were forever
now we fight all night and day
and I dont like what I've become
now I stay in bed all day
i lie in company with tears and heartache
and still cant believe it
when I met you I was cool
do you remember when ... you loved me

Cold Wind cold wind artemesiablack

written by Sabiné Heusler-Schick © 2011

Oh how the cold wind blows
Oh how the cold wind blows
blows down deep into into our souls
Oh how the cold wind blows

I'll wait for you by the old pear tree
I'll wait for you with my white dress on
I'll wait for you and you'd better come
I'll wait for you till the sun goes down

but Oh my lover you take so long
I waited till my dress turned brown
I waited and you didnt come
I waited too long and the sun came up

chorus

If I could do it all again
I'd say you come find me in that wind
I'd dance all night till the sun came up
I'd never wait for you
I'd never wait for you
I'd never wait for you.....

but now how the cold wind.... blows....

oh francis rae by the cat fish river
in the old wood cabin that we built together
if I could write you I would send you a letter
the war is ended and Im only da-y--s away

oh francis rae all these years I'm longing
I miss you more than I could ever say
I hope your ankles are cooling in the river
the war is ended and Im only da-y--s away

out past the bridge and the rocks in the river the
waters run red where the angels fell
I saw the light high up above me
hurricane take me to eternal grace
hurricane take me to eternal grace

oh if I could write you and if only you could read
I would send a parson to be waiting when I came
to hold us by the hands and bind us together
now the war is over and you did sure--ly wait

oh francis rae I stand at your door way
empty and hollow the rooms stark and bare
I wonder the street to the house of my brother
I see in the window that you surely did--nt wait

out past the bridge and the rocks in the river the
waters run red where the angels fell
I saw the light high up above me
hurricane take me to eternal grace
hurricane take me to eternal grace

oh francis rae I can see you on the table
arms embraced on my brothers kitchen bench
I flew through the door with my face all a flaming
the war is over and my lover did--nt wait

took her by the hair and marched her to the river
she lost her footing and she fell on the rocks with
blood on my hands I could surely couldnt save her
the war is over and I have lost m--y love

out past the bridge and the rocks in the river the
waters run red where the angels fell
I saw the light high up above me
hurricane take me to eternal grace
hurricane take me to eternal grace
hurricane take me to eternal grace

Daisy ChainsFrancis Rae Artemesiablack

written by Sabiné Heusler-Schick © 2007

lay down your daisy chains
you'll never find a kiss so sweet
wide eye'd like a hurricane
waiting by the river way

and he could be
oh so handsome
you know what the gypsies say
come back this time tomorrow
and wait by the river way

and he could be as tall as tree
deep as the ocean as smart as can be
but oh if he could carry me
away and take my hand

well on the bridge
he look at me
and fell right in the river way
well he could never salvation be
floating down the river way

and he could be as tall as tree
deep as the ocean as smart as can be
but oh if he could carry me
away and take my hand

floating down the river way
damn those daisy chains
floating down the river way
he'll not come this way again
floating down the river way
he'll not come this way again
floating down the river way

Beautiful, Beautiful, Beautiful long black hair
beautiful boy, beautiful, beautiful long black hair
I believed every word you said
you had me with my bags packed

dust on your boots and shovel in your hand
dust on your boots and....

holy mother of god, how can you be so blind
(how could I have been so blind)
holy mother of god, how can you be so blind

Beautiful, Beautiful, Beautiful long black hair
beautiful boy, beautiful, beautiful long black hair
I believed every word you said

turned my head and knife in my back
dust on your boots and shovel in your hand

Mary JanesFrancis Rae Artemesiablack

written by Sabiné Heusler-Schick © 2007

sixteen years these mary-janes
followed your promises
up and down the east coast
in our beatup pickup

I was young and I was pretty - you said
and you were... the only man I’d had
and you were... and you were....
a son of a gun

it wasn’t just the money
it was a living, if living is a life

ahah
thats me in the window, thats me
that me in the window...

years flash by, tears run dry
i looked to the clouds and
saw my future in the sky
hear the words, you hide behind
nothing blue on the outside,
on the inside i’m slowly dying

ahah
thats me in the window, thats me
that me in the window...

they say I fell, they say...
I drowned or something
they say I wasnt happy, but
I was happy... with you

ahah
thats me in the window, thats me
that me in the window...

StutterFrancis Rae Artemesiablack

written by Sabiné Heusler-Schick © 2008

I stumble
round your
white facade
and torture
strangers
with my eyes
eleven hours I
can stand here
and then never said
goodbye

have I fantasised
my life
so far
deep and wide and
long and round
coz it only takes some
stupid words
to bring everything
above the ground

I am infatuated
yes i’m just mesmerized
I lie awake for hours
and wonder
why can’t I
why can’t I
I , I , I
have you
