The Christmas Guest

It happened one day near December's end,
Two neighbors called on an old friend.
And they found his shop so meager and lean
Made gay with thousand bows of green
And Conrad was sitting with face a-shine
When he suddenly stopped as he stitched a twine
And he said 'Old friends, at dawn today,
When the cock was crowing the night away
The Lord appeared in a dream to me
And said 'I'm coming your guest to be.'
So I've been busy with feet astir
Strewing my shop with branches of fern.
The table is spread and the kettle is shined.
And over the rafters the holly is twined.
Now I'll wait for my Lord to appear
And listen closely so I will hear
His step as He nears my humble place.
And I'll open the door and look on His face.
So his friends went home and left Conrad alone
For this was the happiest day he had known,
For long since, his family had passed away
And Conrad had spent many a sad Christmas Day.
But he knew with the Lord as his Christmas Guest
This Christmas would be the dearest and best.
So he listened with only joy in his heart
And with every sound he would rise with a start
And look for the Lord to be at his door.
Like the vision he had had a few hours before.
So he ran to the window after hearing a sound
But all he could see on the snow covered ground
Was a shabby beggar whose shoes were torn
And all of his clothes were ragged and worn.
But Conrad was touched and he went to the door
And he said, 'You know, your feet must be frozen and sore.
I have some shoes in my shop for you
And a coat that will keep you warmer too.'
So with grateful heart the man went away
But Conrad noticed the time of day
And wondered what made the Lord so late
And how much longer he'd have to wait.
When he heard a knock, he ran to the door
But it was only a stranger once more.
A bent old lady with a shawl of black
With a bundle of kindling piled on her back.
She asked for only a place to rest
But that was reserved for Conrad's Great Guest.
But her voice seemed to plead 'Don't send me away,
Let me rest for awhile on Christmas Day',
So Conrad brewed her a steaming cup
And told her to sit at the table and sup.
But after she left he was filled with dismay
For he saw that the hours were slipping away
And the Lord hadn't come as he said he would.
Then Conrad felt sure he had misunderstood.
When out of the stillness he heard a cry
'Please help me and tell me where am I?'
So again he opened his friendly door
And stood disappointed as twice before.
It was only a child who'd wandered away
And was lost from her family on Christmas Day.
Again Conrad's heart was heavy and sad
But he knew he should make the little girl glad.
So he called her in and he wiped her tears
And quieted all her childish fears.
Then he led her back to her home once more
But as he entered his own darkened door
He knew the Lord was not coming today.
For the hours of Christmas had passed away
So he went to his room and knelt down to pray
And he said 'Dear Lord, why did you delay?
What kept you from coming to call on me?
For I wanted so much your face to see.'
When soft in the silence a voice he heard.
'Lift up your head for I kept my word.
Three times my shadow crossed your floor
And three times I came to your lonely door.
I was the beggar with bruised, cold feet
And I was the woman you gave something to eat.
I was the child on the homeless street.
Three times I knocked, and three times I came in.
And each time I found the warmth of a friend.
Of all the gifts, love is the best.
And I was honored to be your Christmas Guest.

Annie Christian

Annie Christian wanted to be number one
But her kingdom never comes, thy will be done
She couldn't stand the glory, she would be second to none
The way Annie tells the story, she's his only son
Annie Christian wanted to be a big star
So she moved to Atlanta and she bought a blue car
She killed black children, and what's fair is fair
If you try and say you're crazy, everybody say electric chair
Electric chair
 
Annie Christian, Annie Christ
Until you're crucified, I'll live my life in taxicabs
Annie Christian, Annie Christ
Until you're crucified, I'll live my life in taxicabs
 
Annie Christian was a whore always looking for some fun
Being good was such a bore, so she bought a gun
She killed John Lennon, shot him down cold
She tried to kill Reagan, everybody say gun control
Gun control
 
Annie Christian, Annie Christ
Until you're crucified I'll live my life in taxicabs
Annie Christian, Annie Christ
Until you're crucified I'll live my life in taxicabs
 
Liar, liar, liar
Got ya in a jam
Put your head on the block, somebody say Abscam
Abscam
 
Annie Christian, Annie Christ
Until you're crucified I'll live my life in taxicabs
Annie Christian, Annie Christ
Until you're crucified I'll live my life in taxicabs
 

Rendezvous

[Verse 1]
Blue, blue, blue
Bluer than the night
You can't change the colour of your pretty eyes
But I, I, I, I have seen the clues
Leaving something dirty on me like tattoos
 
[Pre-Chorus 1]
Do I have to keep you safe and warm tonight?
Didn't no one ever teach you wrong from right?
I don't wanna be something objectified
 
[Chorus]
Listen, baby, it's true
How you gonna keep afloat?
Baby, it's true
Water's rising then I choke
Now I think you're losing something critical
Maybe our love is just a physical rendezvous
 
[Verse 2]
Shade, shade, shade
Shading in the lines
I'm just staying steady whilst you're in disguise
Buy, buy, buy
Buy some extra time
You can fool the world before they realize
 
[Pre-Chorus 2]
I don't wanna be something objectified
 
[Chorus]
Listen, baby, it's true
How you gonna keep afloat?
Baby, it's true
Water's rising then I choke
Now I think you're losing something critical
Maybe our love is just a physical rendezvous
 
[Bridge]
Ooh
So be a man and take my sympathy for granted
Just take it, just take it, oh
Now wash your hands of all the little lies you planted
Just take it, just take it, oh
As I remember, you told me the first time
I was just your rendezvous
Oh
 
[Chorus]
Listen, baby, it's true
How you gonna keep afloat?
Baby, it's true
Water's rising then I choke
Now I think you're losing something critical
Maybe our love is just a physical rendezvous
How you gonna keep afloat?
Baby, it's true
Water's rising then I choke
Now I think you're losing something critical
Maybe our love is just a physical rendezvous
 

Life Round Here

[Verse]
Part time love is the life round here
We're never done
Everything feels like touchdown on a rainy day
Part time love is the life round here
We're never done
 
[Chorus]
Now we’re at square one
And we wait too long
'Til we’re at square one
 
We never done...
 
[Verse]
Part time love is the life round here
We're never done
Everything feels like touchdown on a rainy day
Part time love is the life round here
We're never done
Everything feels like touchdown on a rainy day
Part time love is the life round here
We're never done
 
[Chorus]
Now we’re at square one
And we wait too long
'Til we’re at square one
Til we’re at square one
 
[Verse]
Part time love is the life round here
We're never done
Part time love is the life round here
We're never done
Everything feels like touchdown on a rainy day
Part time love is the life round here
We're never done
Part time love is the life round here
We're never done
Everything feels like touchdown on a rainy day
Part time love is the life round here
We're never done
 

Pe apa sâmbetei

Niciodată n-am crezut
Ca o să vorbim de noi la trecut
Îmi e greu
 
Sper să fie el ce ai vrut
Că ai găsit tot ce-ai pierdut
De azi, nu mai eşti o parte din mine
 
Nu contează ce motiv ai, nu-i de-ajuns
Să explici ceva ce nu are răspuns
Nu, nu, nu
 
Şi tot ce-am avut s-a dus pe apa sâmbetei
Nu poţi să te uiţi în ochii mei
Când vorbesc cu tine
Hey, stai departe de mine
 
Acum nu o să mă întorci din drum
Tot ce am avut s-a făcut scrum
Te-ai gândit doar la tine
Hey, stai departe de mine
 
A fost iubire mai demult
O amintire de un minut
A trecut
 
Şi nu înţeleg ce ai fi vrut
Credeai că eu nu ştiu ce-ai făcut
De azi, nu mai eşti o parte din mine
 
Nu contează ce motiv ai, nu-i de-ajuns
Să explici ceva ce nu are răspuns
Nu, nu, nu
 
Şi tot ce-am avut s-a dus pe apa sâmbetei
Nu poţi să te uiţi în ochii mei
Când vorbesc cu tine
Hey, stai departe de mine
 
Acum nu o să mă întorci din drum
Tot ce am avut s-a făcut scrum
Te-ai gândit doar la tine
Hey, stai departe de mine
 
Şi acum îmi spui să-ţi mai dau o şansă
Inima nu mă lasa
Lacrimile tale nu le mai cred acum
 
Nu mai văd în noi nicio speranţă
Poate într-o altă viaţă
Lacrimile tale
