Song – Dirty Ruby

LYRICS:

VERSE 1:

My beliefs they slipped away from me, left me with nothing but this mist

Of grey anxiety, clenching my mind up like a fist

And i felt no strength then to deal with all the consequences

In no position then to look for independence

CHORUS:

But then the beauty of the world revealed itself to me

And that most beautiful of girls declared her love for me

And i found the strength to carry on

VERSE 2:

A maze of insecurity kept all the world out of my view

So far from true reality, i doubted everything i knew

With no sense of identity – thoughts, dreams and feelings merged as one

Was not who i’d pretend to be, but then i looked up at the sun

(CHORUS)

MIDDLE:

I woke up in a prison cell of plastic, glass and flesh

Travelling through a dream of lambs and mist

I broke free in the centre of this multi-layered city

And found you blind and bleary when we kissed

Dirty Ruby shine, light a fire in my cold, dark soul

Dirty Ruby shine, melt the cracks in my heart to make me whole again

My friend, I never thought that I’d feel whole again (X2)

You tried to give me all the things you thought I’d want to see

And do the things you thought I wanted done

But the very fact you even chose to speak to me at all

Gave me more joy than any prize I’d ever won

Dirty Ruby shine, light a fire in my cold, dark soul

Dirty Ruby shine, melt the cracks in my heart to make me whole

Dirty Ruby shine on and on and on and on

Dirty Ruby shine on and on again

LAST CHORUS

The beauty of the world revealed itself to me

And that most beautiful of girls declared her love for me

And yet still she doesn’t know because I cannot find the words

Or the right images to show how all about her that I’ve heard

Has given me the strength to carry on
