Songs by Jason Ball

Angel Spies

Dark birds in the morning sky
Circle down around me
Eyes blind but I see
And I can hear them calling

One drop in a poison cloud
Down the days I glide
No stepping out on this ride
The feeling that I can't hide

Heaven knows open eyes
How did I fall so far so fast?
Never saw angel spies
Reaching out as I passed
But I know that a ride like this won't last

[Lyrics]


Body Arithmetic

Just a little bit... just a little bit closer...
Do you believe in it? I've told you everything you know so far

Invitational like a mirror I flash it right back to you
I'm the original yeah everything you heard is true

Don't keep me hanging on now count down to what you're always waiting for
Into the infinite but you don't have to come if you're not sure

I put it all behind me for just a little bit of your love
So close your eyes now show me what you dreamed of



Body Arithmetic didn't add up to everything you thought I was
But like a hypnotist I grow more powerful with applause

I put it all behind me for just a little bit of your love
So close your eyes now show me what you're dreaming of

What kind of charm can this be to make us carry on & on & on
While the chips are falling down till the chance that we have is gone?

[Lyrics]


Mama Lama

Mama Lama spinner of light
So spectacular so outta sight
Supernova help me to see
Burn the night away shine down on me

Mama Lama please hear my prayer
Shine your light on us — Evil beware!
All your children count on you now
Come and answer us help us somehow

Gonna come down from the sky
She won't slip and she won't slide
And you'll know it's for real cuz you'll see it in her eye
Looking in & out for all of us
From the beginning

Carcinoma under the sun
Stole the water out of everyone
Mama Lama soaked up the sea
Gave a gallon back to you & me

Gonna come down from the sky
Saves the teardrops when you cry
And you'll know she's for real cuz you'll see it in her eye
Looking in & out for all of us
From the beginning

Gonna come down from the sky
Lay it down on me tonight
And you'll know it's for real cuz you'll see it in my eye
Looking in & out for all of us
From the beginning

[Lyrics]


Summer's Only Daughter

Twilight
If I don't greet the dawn above
If I don't realize the time
It's cuz I'm with my love
Cold valentine

Long years
Our bones accustomed to the chill
Though I can't stay forever here
My true love will
Forever near

Our way by moonlight we did make
But gentle did the waves
Upon the silence break
Till there through tender reeds
I led my darling
To sleep beneath the lake
Her flower garland
Petals drifting in a reaper's wake

Sleep my love
Let nothing wake

Summer's only daughter
Dreaming 'neath the water
Summer's only daughter

Safe there
Too sallow for the sun to burn
To supple for the wind to tear
Though seasons turn
She does not care

Smile dear
Ten thousand stars shine in your eyes
Your kisses whispered from the deep
In tiny bubbles rise & answer me
In the ripples starry eyes are dancing

The sun will rise soon
I must leave

Summer's only daughter
Dreaming 'neath the water
Smiling like I taught her
Summer's only daughter

[Lyrics]


The End of Road

Out of the ocean into the wind
Cyclical motion the wheel's gonna spin
Here in the half light the journey began
I can't believe it's over now

Capital cities all over the world
Deserts & rainbows, diamonds & pearls
Don't hold a candle to my paper girl

I can't believe it's over now
Reached the end of road somehow
Can't believe it's over now

Out on highway Number One I never way it coming
She's calling me up, she's calling me home

Now that I've found my way no more searching in vain
Sunny days with the top rolled down were melting my brain
Now I'm in no hurry yeah I'm right as rain

I can't believe it's over now
Reached the end of road somehow
Can't believe it's over now

Here in the half light the journey began

I can't believe it's over now
Reached the end of road somehow
Can't believe it's over now
Reached the end of road somehow
Can't believe it's over now
