lyrics

I heard a thought, and I’ll have to laugh
I’ll have to laugh the smile of you off
It’s cold inside these aching bones
Lusting after ghosts gone past
Many a night I spent alone
After your special eyes were gone
Racing the heels of a vanishing sun
When everything was done

The ash of my desire, full of latent fire
Ankles on a fairground wheel
To possess your youthful body
Now faded and gone away
To a secret life beyond the sway
Where the hard smile of heaven burns me out
Dust in the breeze, free as disease
Do as you please, still in the trees

Molly G, you little naughty
Free in the dream of you and me
Molly G, not even you can be

You practised ballet on the hard shoulder
That summer as we hitched
Stuck your tongue out at soldiers, your hair up in wisps
Lorry drivers blew you kisses, I honoured them on your cheek
Hugged you in the heather beneath a paper moon
We would never grow old or learn solemn things
Yet the world intervened and you had to go
My heart climbed a rainbow and shattered in mid-air
Hung up on your legs, with the wind at my heels
And your melting flesh now dust like all the rest

Molly G, you little naughty
Free in the dream of you and me
Molly G, not even you can be

Does anyone ever find the child inside that cries
Whose play will never die but falls asleep somehow
Saddened to a shadow, backdrop in the underflow
The child in the hollow never growing known;
Slowly serving time in the world’s undergrowth
Although the essence holds when all is told
Skinny urchin bold . . .

Molly G, you little naughty
Free in the dream of you and me
Molly G, not even you can be

Fantastic visitation
Heart of creation
Your spirit like wine is sound
Your spirit like mine
Still blows on the phoenix flames
Of our forgotten games

about

Pete Gioconda Brighton, UK

PETE GIOCONDA is a unique, edgy singer, a protest poet with penchant for historical reference. This mix of punk attitude and psychedelic-folk feel teases the audience to take sides ... like a Johnny Rotten (who hasn’t slept in four days) meets Times they are a-changin’-era Dylan and strolls into Cat Power’s bedroom for consolation. ... more
