YOU'RE EVERYTHING

Music & Lyrics Philip Foxman

I wore the clothes shared the dream kissed the smiles across the screen  I was confused by design Shooting stars into my eyes blinded by all the lies
I was naked and cold I sold off my soul I turned to g-d felt his hand lead me to a distant land
all the angels collide I tried the needle and the spoon locked away inside my room  the words never came I gave in to my pain
Chorus
Baby your everything Baby you everything I need, I need
Vers:e
She held me down to my knees  beat the child inside of me all lullabies lost
I couldn't take another day this emptiness won't go away  I was driven to tears the end seemed so clear
Baby your everything Baby you everything   need, I need
Bridge
He who seeks shall find All the answers in his own time Never play into doubt  It grows like a fire consumes your desire
Don't make me, don't make me wait for it now
 I tried to run I tried to hide the only way I could survive  through these dark desperate times, you where right by my side
Baby your everything  Baby you everything

HERE IT COMES

We were two strangers on the boulevard of fateAbused and so confused nobody could relate.
She followed fantasies and footsteps through the nightand I dreamed of sinking ships and emerald colored kites
Chorus
Here it comes, it’s a feeling when I look into her eyes.
Here it comes, it’s a feeling that I know I can’t disguise.
Verse 2:The stars were crossed that night I fell into her arms her bed was warm and I thought we couldn’t come to harm.But like an obsession that cuts right through your bonesI couldn’t turn around and leave well enough alone.
Chorus
Bridge
I reach out and she couldn’t understand that we were touched by a love so strong.
In all her glory she stole the moment single stroke and the world went wrong.
Chorus
Here it comes, it’s a feeling when I look into her eyes.
Here it comes it’s a feeling that I know I can’t disguise.


I'LL  BE THERE


Music & Lyrics Philip Foxman

I’ll be there when the world turns against you
to soften the blow and hold you so tight
Pick up the pieces and fold out the
creases that time delivered with a silent resolve
I’ll be there as your dreams turn to water
licking the tears that roll down your cheeks
The times they are racing we are all dislocating
Losing your, faith surround by fear, when nothing seems clear

Chorus
I’ll be there for you
Like the ocean the stars and the moon
Oh I’ll be there pulling and pushing you through.
Verse 2ˇ
I’ll be there as you look in the mirror
and see yourself in plain light of day.
Running from dreams on to an Island of solitude
starring at screens shadows and fog
And I’ll be there as you try resist
the forces of nature with an empty cry
whispering words, lifting you higher
fighting your fears to keep you track
hey never look back.

Chorus
ˇ
Bridge
 
The G-ds of the moment are laughing with too much too soon
Confusing is raging in a world that’s cascading in two
you win or you lose, You lose
Verse
And I’ll be there when you stare in to the silence
see your reflecting in a cold razor blade
Holding your breath as your skin turns
to rubies feeding the light in to your eyes a soul sacrifice

Chorus
I’ll be there for you
Like the ocean the stars and the moon
Oh I’ll be there pulling and pushing you through


SHELTERING SKY
Music & Lyrics Philip Foxmanˇ

Verse 1.
There’s hate in the heartland crosses burning on screen
Bullet proof bibles will be sent for a fee
Misguided prophets draw the line between men
they say follow the savior or deal with the devil in the end
He plays with his teddy bear, cartoons on the VCR
chocolate is on his face its everywhere
ˇ
Chorus
Stay with me, I’ll protect and comfort you
Stay with me and I’ll be your sheltering sky

Verse 2.
They’re marching in goose steps, singing glories of old
the bald head eagles follow steps paved with bones
Behind walls truth is twisted as the barbwire smiles
armies are ready fight or burn themselves up alive
Sand castles in sun we play hide and seek
He rolls over laughing loud, I’m so proud

Bridge
We put a man on the moon
We can light up the night sky
we can speak across oceans
where caught in the cross fire
Faces so manipulated that saints would be sinners
and we all become criminals.
Verse 3.
Where pumped up with promises blinded by choice
Naked women are dancing in circles,
glad they’ve found their true voice
The band keeps on playing as the virus spread
while they’re speaking in tongues to confuse there evil intent
He sleeps like an angel, in Mickey mouse sheets
dreams about ice cream and fudgecakes, Disneyland, fairy floss
and all I want to do is hold his hand

Stay with me, I’ll protect and comfort you
Stay with me and I’ll be your sheltering sky



MY VALENTINE
Music & Lyrics Philip Foxman

She lives across from central park, neon stars shoots through the dark.
Pictures and forget me knots surround her bed with pocadots.
Someday soon she will die from a virus that eats her alive
but laughter is the only cure to kill the pain she endures.

Cut to a little blonde girl in pink summer dress playing hide and seek at Brighton beach.
Her father holds her in his arms she wakes up in a feeling calm.
Her life was full of avenues a chance to make her dreams turn true.
To the beat of the drum she lived her life to the beat of her blood she lived her life.
When the light leaves her eyes she'll become a star in the sky.

Chorus
My valentine my dying valentine you'll always be here with me
My valentine my dying Valentine I'll be with till your teardrops dissolve.

She belonged to the generation that could have it all without rejection.
We made love in a pool of passion, poetry, erotic fashion.
Voices penetrate her walls as human needs like sirens call.
I kiss her lips and taste her fears memories we all revere.
With a smile in her eyes she asks, “Do we return or do we just disappear”.

Chorus
My valentine my dying valentine you'll always be here with me
My valentine my dying Valentine I'll be with till your teardrops dissolve.

On a endless night she took her life with a bottle of pills and a plastic bag.
Sinatra sang a summer wind, Ophellia you'll live again.
The message on her answer machine said "live your life to extreme”
You never know what life can bring so taste it all awake and sing"
As the rain dances on her face spirits raise to higher place.
Chorus
My valentine my dying valentine you'll always be here with me
My valentine my dying Valentine I'll be with till your teardrops dissolve.

HEY LITTLE BROTHER
Music & Lyrics Philip Foxman

Hey little brother I see your coming into criminal years
I know you think you know it all like I did but believe me all the heroes are gonna fall
I wish I had a crystal to shine a little light and make you wanna stand and fight
Your living in the belly of the beast and he'll never stop
til your lying underneath his feet
I wish I could take back the years
The needle stole and left me crippled and confused

Chorus
Hey little brother what you trying to prove
They gonna put another nail into you
Hey little brother don't be nobody's fool
Let me help you get through

Verse 2
It's summer in the city and the pretty Puerto Rican girls go dancing by
Their mothers and there fathers are sitting on the stoops waiting for the heat to subside
When the night falls all the streets are covered with the evil eye.
The last sound you hear is a gun shot in your back before you before you die.
Don't make the same mistake they made. don't let the gutter become your grave.

Chorus
Hey little brother what you trying to prove
They gonna put another nail into you
Hey little brother don't be nobody's fool
Let me help you get through

Bridge
Don't do what I did.
Hey do what I say.
Don't throw your precious life away.
Take the needle and gun and throw then in the river
You gotta be strong you gotta be brave.

Verse 3
I'm standing by my window
watching the ambulance carry you far away
Then I whisper to myself another life has gone astray.

Hey little brother what you trying to prove
They gonna put another nail into you
Hey little brother don't be nobody's fool
Let me help you get through


BUDDHA IN THE BATHROOM
Music & Lyrics Philip Foxman

I can't believe what I see people praying to the trees
Hear them moan hear them groan I don't think anybodies home
Heads are covered eyes are closed bed of nails piercing bones
There running scared from themselves why take it out on anyone else


Chorus
The Buddha's in the bathroom laughing up a storm
If you think he's gonna save ya let me tell you your wrong
You gotta have something more these days to survive
While the buddha's in the bathroom laughing up a storm

Holy water, blood red wine feed them poison so devine
Another life after this will be your heavenly bliss, calculated risk.
Driving straight into the crowd screaming devils must be proud
Metal tears in the desert sun is this your way of having fun, with your only son.

The Buddha's in the bathroom laughing up a storm
If you think he's gonna save ya let me tell you your wrong
You gotta have something more these days to survive
While the Buddha's in the bathroom laughing up a storm


What ever happen to the call
All for one and one for all
If there's a god he must be sad
they took his words and all his lands
changed the meaning and the man into ashes filled with sand

I look at you you look at me I see flesh and blood and fears
If I've got what it is want blow me away and make it fast
Don't call it anything but greed leave the sun the moon and trees
If hates the only god you know why should I worship at your throne

NERVOUS IN THE NIGHTˇ

Music & Lyrics Philip Foxman


Verse 1ˇ
She watched him from her window on those silver summer nights
his words they where like loaded guns looking for a fight
Revolution filled the air changes had to come and they came

Chorus
I'm watching and I'm waiting and I hold him and I love him
but I'm nervous in the night

Verse 2
ˇShe listen for his footsteps as they echo in the wind
he lives inside her sacred guard that secret place within
He's breaking thru the barriers with sticks and stones and words his words
ˇ
Chorus
I'm watching and I'm waiting and I hold him and I love him
but I'm nervous in the night

Bridge
He had a dream that we could share he stand for freedom no despair
Hanging on to every word the time was right for our promised land for everyman
Verse 3ˇ
Rifles in the distance ashes in the air
His name will last for ever to the man inside her womb
Like Jesus Christ he had a dream but never saw the day his way

Chorus

I'm watching and I'm waiting and I hold him and I love him
but I'm nervous in the night

RANDOM FIRE

Music & Lyrics by Philip Foxman
¸
Verse 1
It could have been me but it was you standing outside my front door.
A car passed by machine gun roared I felt a cold breeze cross my face.
I heard a scream then a siren piercing through the night.
I turned the TV on to kill off my imagination.
ˇ
Chorus
Random fire ,
Random fire.

Verse 2
Time passed by I began to feel a certain amount of stress.
I turned to C N N like every good American.
A black man with a funny noise was standing outside the whitehouse wall
He said “statisically we were heading for an almighty fall”
ˇ
Chorus

Verse 3ˇ
I tried to sleep but an unknown fear was stirring up my soul.
At times like these I hold you tight until the dreams set in.
I took some pills and waited for the silence of oblivion.
CNN was still ablaze with AIDS, drugs and homelessness.
ˇ
Verse4
I was cruising on my remote control and the funny blackman was back again.
Standing outside my door reporting on the the lasted drive by score.
They showed a picture of you as the sleeping pill surged through my veins.
I hit the floor and lost control of all my consciousness.
ˇ
Chorus out rapˇ
It could have been me but it was you standing outside the front door.
It could have been me but it was you standing outside my front door

SHADOWS FELL AWAY

Music & Lyrics Philip Foxman

 Josie was a mid western girl came to the city to go diving for pearls but she was blinded by the light of celluloid dreams and the celebrity life.
Jake was a wall St kid who grew up on his fathers myth.
His words were sharp like the needles that he shared with his downtown
friends on the dirty boulevards

They met at a private party then again at a late night bar and all he knew was that he had to kiss the tiny scare below her lips.
He took her home that night they made love like two banshees on fire
as the sirens played a street serenade they fell in love and there shadows fell away

They lived the party life invitations everynight they even made page six of the post bringing the fall at the latest charity ball
When your in love things move so fast you fill in the gaps of all the years past she drop her guard into a pool of promises of broken rubbers and faultless lovers

She woke up feeling strange that night and watched him sleep with a smile that was cut like a knife
He was dreaming of a black limousine floating on a stream of light to a place he'd never seen
No man stands above the laws of nature she's cruel to be kind or kills by design. The virus entered undetected the past is resurrected to those unprotected

A phone call from a dying friend left Jake too frightened to pretend
he had the test and came off second best Mephistopheles couldn't plan a better end.
He told her that very same night she was shattered he was contrite
But there love was beyond reproach and they promise never to loose hope

They kept there secret till the signs began to show then made a pact to end it all in a penthouse on park avenue they shared the silver needle he kissed her tiny scare then closed his eyes she felt a tear then a smile as there shadows fell away

SPANISH ARMADA
Music & Lyrics by Philip Foxman

Verse 1ˇ
We came from a country were the jungle consumed.
With terror and violence in the end we all lose.
Now we live in the city on the lower East side.
Where there's no human pity, got to steal just to survive.
ˇ
Chorus 1ˇ
We came on the Spanish Armada
with dreams and with lights in our eyes
Give us your tired your hungry
The lady she lied. But our love never dies.
ˇ
Verse 2
My brothers are broken, their framed from inside.
The bars of a nation that will steal your hope and pride.
Their tongues they are silent with the secrets of Christ.
If he is the savior than this is paradise.


Chorus 2ˇ
Break.
How can you look in the eyes of a child
That blames you for being alive.
When his English is broken in two.
From the streets of indifference and trust in you.

ˇ
Verse 3ˇ
One day they'll be changes, when the temperatures rise.
A man with a mission he will decided.
He'll come from this gutter counting they’re crimes
Til that moment of action. Our love never dies.

ˇ
Chorus
We came on the Spanish Armada
with dreams and with lights in our eyes
Give us your tired your hungry.
The lady she lied. But our love never dies.
