Murphy, Peter - Canvas Beauty Lyrics




Here stands the canvas beauty at her door
Calling beneath the blockade floor
See him turn bedeviled and blacked
For the canvas beauty had locked him back
Away from the king of hearts so pure
In with temptations alluring pour
Away from her his compass mass
The everglade the bonny lass

The actress love that he mistook
A siren for his aging look
The actress love that he mistook
A siren love for his aging look

Here stands Dorian at her need

In Hedonisms shaft like look
He wears the id the painter mistook
And with her flame he'll burn its flesh
Burn the freeze transcend the mesh

Riders wings you give me back
The siren for his aging look
The actress love that he mistook
The siren love for his aging look

Here stands Dorian at her need

    I hope these lyrics are accurate, nicked 'em from online. The song makes a lot more sense with 'em in front of you as you bellow along!

    "Canvas Beauty"

    Here stands the canvas beauty at her door
    Calling beneath the blockade floor
    See him turn bedeviled and blacked
    For the canvas beauty had locked him back
    Away from the king of hearts so pure
    In with temptations alluring pour
    Away from her his compass mass
    The everglade the bonny lass

    The actress love that he mistook
    A siren for his aging look
    The actress love that he mistook
    A siren love for his aging look

    Here stands Dorian at her need

    In Hedonisms shaft like look
    He wears the id the painter mistook
    And with her flame he'll burn its flesh
    Burn the freeze transcend the mesh

    Riders wings you give me back
    The siren for his aging look
    The actress love that he mistook
    The siren love for his aging look

    Here stands Dorian at her need

    I discovered this album later...My first solo album of his was, "Love Hysteria." This one was very sweet, I thought.

    One of my favorite songs. I had a car that needed a new fanbelt. It reminded me of this song.

    A little poppy for Pete, but still nice stuff. Quite nostalgic for a fella like meeeeeeee

    Slim Jim
