I know what you do You hide yourself away And I don't want you to I'm walking a million miles Just to see you smile Negotiate a better day Your friends just walk on by And you don't even try To conjure something new I'm remembering the days When you could not be tamed You could just settle down This ain't no time to mess around Don't be the one that got away I'm walking a million miles Just to see you smile You've thrown the gauntlet down When you know we'll be around Don't be the one that got away

You ask me why I love you so The answer I can't tell I only know my actions show I love you far too well You ask me when I love you most And if my love is true Now listen dear and you will hear The times when I love you When the birds fly in springtime When the sun in summer shines When golden autumn days are passing It's then for you I pine When the winter snows are falling The skies they frown or smile When awake or dreaming, sweetheart I love you all the while You ask me if my love for you Forever will remain Though years may come and years may go I love you just the same You ask me when you're growing old If I will love you too Now listen dear and you will hear The times when I love you

I used to live for music Harmonic motion can capture my soul But now I don't know if any of it is mine And I can't seem to kill the time

Come up and see me We'll dance in the mud Faking I'm happy As I reach for your gun Don't pass out You're on top of it all Boocat Leah Come up and see me We'll speak double dutch In a mess of our making I wait for your touch Don't crash out You're the belle of the ball Boocat Leah Don't believe what everyone's saying Disconnect the lines that they're making Cos everything goes slow When you dance on the floor Boocat Leah Come up and see me I won't leave you for dead As everything empties From inside your head Just make out That you're in love with it all Boocat Leah Come up and see me We'll speak double dutch In a mess of our making I wait for your touch Don't crash out You're the belle of the ball Boocat Leah Don't believe what everyone's saying Contradict the lies that they're faking Cos everything's slo-mo When you dance on the floor Boocat Leah

I don't believe the light you've shone is gone It's shining somewhere I can't believe the love you gave's not saved It's shining somewhere I recognise the myriad sighs in the songs You're singing to me But I don't believe the light you've shone is gone It's shining somewhere I don't believe the light you've shone is gone It's shining somewhere I can't believe the love you gave is not safe It's shining somewhere I can't react to every heartfelt plea This song makes me sad But I don't believe the light you've shone is gone It's shining somewhere

Nobody cares about form And nobody cares about speed They just want it across the plate It wasn't my idea The lines can never be redrawn And yeah, you say you love the rain But then you run and hide just the same As all the raindrops start to spray And this is why I'm afraid When you say you love me too Escape your troubles into the future Flip a coin and your ship's a-coming in And even if the chance is slim A line in the sand's been drawn And can never be redrawn Passenger train, warped by the rain On the left is the land, the right the sea And all the colours they reflect me With little more left to give And with nothing left to lose Nobody cares about form And nobody cares about speed They just want it across the plate It wasn't my idea The lines can never be redrawn

I used to live for music As if my senses could fracture its soul But now I don't know if any of it is mine And I can't seem to kill the time

Thrill me, just don't kill me My love is sweet Stay in my arms, free Please don't harm me I love when you put words in my mouth for me Take me, don't forsake me And dear, don't you choke on Just lose the fear in me Place it close to me I love when you project your thoughts on me Thrill me, just don't kill me My love is sweet Stay in my arms, free Please don't harm me I love when you put words in my mouth for me Project your thoughts on me

It's such a lonely way home that I've mapped With all goodwill in the world untapped It's such a long way home And you are And you're the only one I'm thinking of Black horses forcing me to jump right off It's such a long way home It took such a day for me to find my way Now all our tomorrows will be come-what-mays It's such a long way And you are such a long ways from home It's such a long way home

about

From 1990 to 1998, Adam Franklin was the singer, guitarist and main songwriter for London-based Swervedriver before the band reunited in 2008, which included a high-profile performance at Coachella. Swervedriver were contemporaries of and label mates with My Bloody Valentine and Ride but with a more adrenalized rock ‘n’ roll sound, showing flashes of Husker Du and Sonic Youth. Since Swervedriver's hiatus in the late 90's, Franklin released three full-length albums under his own name. Black Horses, the new release from Adam Franklin & Bolts Of Melody is out this summer on July 16, 2013 via Goodnight Records.
