We All Live In Ukraine



New colors wave for freedom
Wheat beneath the blue
Thank you, Mr. Molotov
We raise this glass to you
Old men with the young men
Staring down the tanks
They’ve shuttered up the opera
And sandbagged all the banks
Someone said that liberty’s
Been buried with a spade
Underneath the bodies
Of the men in the brigade
Who fought in Spain
We all live in Ukraine
 
Hypocrisy and tyranny
Beneath a golden dome
Wake up and you’ll find them
In the backyard of your home
The oligarch, the autocrat
Why can’t you understand?
He hides behind a painted face
And smells of contraband
His fighter jets crisscross your sky
His men march through your mud
The mothers’ and the babies’ and
The old man’s blackened blood
Flows down your drain
We all live in Ukraine
 
Hitler, Stalin, Franco, Mao,
Pinochet and Pol Pot
Despotism through the years
As common as the rot
He beats his breast and then declares,
“Democracy’s for fools
He who wields the iron fist
Is he who makes the rules”
No place we can run to,
Ain’t no place we can hide
We need guns and bandages
We don’t need no ride
Let me explain
We all live in Ukraine
 
The iceman in the Kremlin
Wants us to call him boss
But someone in the kitchen’s
Putting vodka in his sauce
And if you speak against him,
I wouldn’t taste the tea
He’ll burn all your possessions
And he’ll hang you from a tree
His finger’s on the trigger
He hasn’t got a friend
Bare-chested in a snowstorm
And everywhere he’s been
He leaves a stain
We all live in Ukraine
 
The overlord is poison
Smeared upon the gates
It tars the hands of children
And the food upon their plates
The railways and the harbors
The concrete and the stones
The hospitals and highways
TVs and telephones
The markets and the steel mills
The coffee shops and bars
The hotels and the churches
The bicycles and cars
All make it plain
We all live in Ukraine
 
But you don’t have to listen
I just sing the blues
The Russian is a friend of ours
I heard it on Fox News
They say those bombs are gentle
They’re liberating Kyiv
From Jewish neo-Nazis
They want you to believe
That cat who thinks he’s funny,
He won’t have half a chance
No one’s stopped an army yet
With just a song and dance
He’ll die in vain
We all live in Ukraine
 
Three men on the freeway
Defending soil and salt
Meet an armored column
And bring it to a halt
Join us with a pitchfork
A hammer or an axe
To greet Vlad the Impaler
And kill him in his tracks
You think that freedom matters
In these cities of the plain?
They’ll stomp upon the flowers
That you planted in the rain
So don’t complain
We all live in Ukraine

Queen of my heart



She can kill with a smile
She can break your heart before you perceive it
She can play all night
She will show her love and you won't believe it
She can hold you tight
Promising more than the garden of Eden
She can stand up and fight
Leaving you bleeding
 
But she is all that I prayed for
She's brave as a lion
Her beauty's beyond all the pieces of art
I'll fight for her with my spades
Overwhelm her with diamonds
Losing my clubs to the queen of my heart
Losing my clubs to my queen
 
She can rule your dreams
She can make you feel the way that she wants to
She's the queen of all queens
She will kiss you then incautiously cut you
She will hold you tight
Promising more than the garden of Eden
She will stand up and fight
Leaving you bleeding
 
But she is all that I prayed for
She's brave as a lion
Her beauty's beyond all the pieces of art
I'll fight for her with my spades
Overwhelm her with diamonds
Losing my clubs to the queen of my heart
I'll fight for her with my spades
Overwhelm her with diamonds
Losing my clubs to my queen
 
I have played all my cards
No more aces to play
But she is all that I prayed for
She's brave as a lion
Her beauty's beyond all the pieces of art
But she's all,
Yeah she's all that I prayed for
 
I'll fight for her with my spades
Overwhelm her with diamonds
Losing my clubs to the queen of my heart
Losing my clubs to the queen of my heart

frosty the snowman



Frosty the Snowman
Was a jolly happy soul
With a corn cob pipe and a button nose
And two eyes made out of coal
 
Frosty the Snowman
Is a fairytale they say
He was made of snow, but the children know
How he came to life one day
 
There must have been some magic
In that old top hat they found
For when they placed it on his head
He began to dance around
Oh, Frosty the Snowman
Was alive as he could be
And the children say he could laugh and play
Just the same as you and me
 
Frosty the Snowman
Was a jolly happy soul
With a corn cob pipe and a button nose
And two eyes made out of coal
 
Frosty the Snowman
A fairytale they say
Was made of snow
But he came to life one day
 
There must have been some magic
In that old top hat they found (some magic in that hat)
For when they placed it on his head
He began to dance around
 
Frosty the Snowman (snowman)
Knew the sun was hot that day (hot that day)
So he said, 'Let's run, and we'll have some fun
Now before I melt away'
 
Frosty the Snowman
Had to hurry on his way
But he waved good-bye, saying, 'Don't you cry
I'll be back again some day!'

Isn't It A Pity?



(Verse)
[MICHAEL]
Why did I wander
Here and there and yonder
Wasting precious time
For no reason or rhyme?
Isn't it a pity?
Isn't it a crime?
My journey's ended
Everything is splendid
Meeting you today
Has given me a wonderful idea
Here I stay!
 
(Chorus)
[MICHAEL]
It's a funny thing
I look at you
I get a thrill
I never knew
Isn't it a pity
We never met before?
 
Here we are at last
It's like a dream
The two of us
A perfect team
Isn't it a pity
We never met before?
 
Imagine all the lonely years we've wasted
You with the neighbors
I at silly labors
What joys untasted!
You reading Heine
I somewhere in China
 
Happiest of men
I'm sure to be
If only you
Will say to me
'It's an awful pity
we never never met before!'
 
(Verse 2)
[ROSEMARY]
While you were flitting
I was busy knitting
 
[MICHAEL]
How did you survive
Waiting till I'd arrive?
 
[ROSEMARY]
All my Dresden boyfriends
Were only half alive
Sleepy was Hermann
Fritz was like a sermon
Nicolas was such a bore!
 
[MICHAEL]
How well I planned it
 
[ROSEMARY]
I just couldn't stand it anymore
 
(Chorus 2)
[ROSEMARY]
It's a funny thing
I look at you
I get a thrill
I never knew
Isn't it a pity
We never met before?
 
Here we are at last
It's like a dream
The two of us
A perfect team
 
[MICHAEL]
For you're more than pretty, and I have charm galore!
 
[ROSEMARY]
Imagine all the lonely years we've wasted
You up in Norway
I around my doorway
What joys untasted!
If you'd been handy
It'd have been just dandy
 
Isn't it a shame
We had to wait?
 
[MICHAEL]
But thank the Lord
It's not too late
 
[MICHAEL AND ROSEMARY]
Still, it's such a pity
We never never met before!
 
(Chorus 3)
[ROSEMARY]
Love your funny smile
Your twinkling eye
 
[MICHAEL]
That's very nice
For so do I!
 
[MICHAEL AND ROSEMARY]
Isn't it a pity
We never met before?
 
[MICHAEL]
Put your hand in mine
A perfect fit
We never knew
Just think of it!
 
[MICHAEL AND ROSEMARY]
Isn't it a pity
We never met before?
 
[MICHAEL]
Imagine all the lonely years I've wasted
Fishing for salmon
Losing at backgammon
 
[ROSEMARY]
What joys untasted!
My nights were sour
Spent with Schopenhauer
 
[MICHAEL AND ROSEMARY]
Let's forget the past
Let's both agree
That I'm for you
And you're for me
And it's such a pity
We never never never never met before!

Heart On My Sleeve



You think you've heard this before
I'll try and say it differently
As long as it comes naturally to me
It's been makin' me sad
'Cause I can't find a better way
To speak the words I want to say to you
 
And know how I love you
Know how I need you
 
[Chorus:]
That I want you to know
I won't let you down, no, I can't let go
And I want you to see
Every day I wear my heart on my sleeve
On my sleeve
 
It's been drivin' me mad
Consistent tones and constant drones
Keep pullin' me back inside my head
Nothin' matters at all
The world will keep on spinnin' around
All these feelin's keep on pourin' out
 
Oh, I love you
Oh, I need you
 
[Chorus:]
That I want you to know
I won't let you down, no, I can't let go
And I want you to see
Every day I wear my heart on my sleeve
 
Yeah, I try to write the words down, oh
Before they're lost and won't come out
Oh, please help me save my soul
 
[Chorus:]
And I want you to know
I won't let you down, no, I can't let go
And I want you to see
Every day I wear my heart on my sleeve
 
Heart on my sleeve
Heart on my sleeve
Heart on my sleeve, yeah
 
No, I can't let it go, can't let it go
Oh, I want you to know
Won't let you down
Every day, yeah, I can't let go
I wear my heart on my sleeve

Beautiful World



You carry the weight
Much better than I do
Day after day
Waiting for good news
 
All of our needs
Our hopes and our dreams
Are waiting on an open door
I see a spark
A light in the dark
We'll be stronger than before
 
We're gonna love like we never been hurt
We're gonna rise like we've never been burned
And after all of the lessons we've learned
We're gonna make this a beautiful world
A beautiful world, oh-oh, oh-oh
Gonna make this a beautiful world, oh-oh, oh-oh
A beautiful world
 
We'll carry the weight
No mountain is too high
It's never too late
There's always a sunrise
 
All of our needs
Our hopes and our dreams
Are waiting on an open door
I see a spark
Of light in the dark
We'll be wiser than before
 
We're gonna love like we never been hurt
We're gonna rise like we've never been burned
And after all of the lessons we've learned
We're gonna make this a beautiful world
A beautiful world, oh-oh, oh-oh
Gonna make this a beautiful world, oh-oh, oh-oh
A beautiful world
 
When we come together
Everything's gonna be much better
When we come together
 
We're gonna love like we never been hurt
Rise like we've never been burned
And after all of the lessons we've learned
We're gonna make it, gonna make this
 
A beautiful world, oh-oh, oh-oh
Gonna make this a beautiful world, oh-oh, oh-oh
Make this a beautiful world
When we come together (When we come together)
We're gonna make this a beautiful world, oh-oh, oh-oh
When we come together
We're gonna make this a beautiful world, oh-oh, oh-oh
When we come together
We're gonna make this a beautiful world, oh-oh, oh-oh

I see You



Lord, You're leading me
With a cloud by day
And then in the night
The glow of a burning flame
 
And everywhere I go I see You
And everywhere I go I see You
 
And You take my hand
And You wash it clean
I know the promised land
Is light years ahead of me
 
And everywhere I go I see You
And everywhere I go I see You
And everywhere I go I see You
And everywhere I go I see You
 
And the eagle flies
And the rivers run
I look through the night
I can see the risin' sun
 
And everywhere I go I see You
And everywhere I go I see You
And everywhere I go I see You
And everywhere I go I see You
 
Well, the grass will die
And the flowers fall
But your word's alive
Will be after all
 
And everywhere I go I see You
And everywhere I go I see You
And everywhere I go I see You
And everywhere I go I see You
And everywhere I go I see You
And everywhere I go I see You
And everywhere I go I see You
And everywhere I go I see You
And everywhere I go I see You
And everywhere I go I see You
And everywhere I go I see You
And everywhere I go I see You

Space Boys



Don't cry for space boys
They are the wrong toys
You are not strong enough
To make them fall in love
 
Don't cry for space boys
Forget the strange toys
They fight for victories
In foreign galaxies
 
I know it's a fever
It's more than a game
But during the battle
You're calling his name
 
I know he is the captain
The captain of your heart
Like a warrior of stars in the sky
 
So far from home
(Don't cry for space boys)
So far from home
(Don't cry for space boys)

It's Raining Gold



The dark horizon opens up and I
See a thousand suns, they shine and they shine
And here I go, no reason to stay
You are the dawn, take me away
 
It’s raining gold, so let’s go out and leave the cold
It’s raining gold, this fairytale has never been told
I don’t know much, I just feel the golden destiny can heal
It’s raining gold
 
Now is the time, we walk the same line
It’s a day so far but I’m here where you are
I see your light shining so bright
 
It’s raining gold, so let’s go out and leave the cold
It’s raining gold, this fairytale has never been told
I don’t know much, I just feel the golden destiny can heal
It’s raining gold, this fairytale has never been told
It’s raining gold
 
Come dance with me, come dream with me
Together we’ll fly up so high
 
(It’s raining gold) It’s raining gold
(It’s raining gold)
 
It’s raining gold, this fairytale has never been told (It’s raining gold)
I don’t know much, I just feel the golden destiny can heal
It’s raining gold, this fairytale has never been told
It’s raining gold

I.M



Baby
Sometimes love can bring you down
But, honey
Keep your head up
Keep your head up
Keep your head up
Remember who you are
 
You can call me crazy
Or just call my name
You can say that I'm stunning
It's not a shame
'Cause I know I am
I know I am, hah
'Cause I know I am
I know I am
I like this attitude
I like the game
You can say that I'm brave
I'm never the same
'Cause I know I am (I know I am)
I know I am (I know I am)
'Cause I know I am (I know I am)
Hah, I know I am
 
Baby, come with me, follow me
Tell me if we can take it to the floor
(Oh-ooh, oh-ooh, oh-ooh, oh-ooh)
I'm the fire, the power
And if you're asking
I was gonna take it all (All, all)
 
You know I am
You know I am
'Cause I na-na-na know I am, am
And no one brings me down
I'm gonna take the crown
Give it to me now
 
I'm shameless and I'm spotless and I'm flawless
Always take it up 'cause I'm a winner, I don't want less
Going for the things I should and maybe I'm ferocious
Making you the one I want and I'm not even topless (Be cautious)
It's going down for real
Twenty twenty-two, let's seal the deal
(Middle East) Is the new sex appeal
Bam, bam, this is how it feel
 
Baby, come with me, follow me
Tell me if we can take it to the floor
(Oh-ooh, oh-ooh, oh-ooh, oh-ooh)
Ooh, I'm the fire, the power
And if you're asking
I was gonna take it all (All, all, all)
 
You know I am
You know I am
'Cause I na-na-na know I am, am
And no one brings me down
I'm gonna take the crown
Give it to me now
 
Baby
Sometimes life can bring you down
But I'll remember
To always keep my head up
'Cause no one brings me down
I'm gonna take the crown
Give it to me now

For A Second



Darling, pull me closer
'Til I hear the beatin' heart I've been missing
Since the night you took my number
I've been counting down the hours, I'm drifting
Some kinda tension running through my mind
It's a feeling I don't want to fight
Darling, pull me closer
'Til I hear that beating heart I've been missing
 
(Bridge)
One, two, three and I'm calling
One, two, three and I'm yours, oh, oh, oh
 
(Chorus)
Hold me just a little bit longer
I don't want the night to be over
Oh, I feel it's heaven
Oh, just for a second
If love is making me this drunk, yeah
I don't ever wanna be sober
Oh, I feel it's heaven
Oh, just for a second
A little, la-la-la, la-la-la
A little, la-la-la, la-la-la
Ooh, I feel it's heaven
Oh, just for a second
 
I was searching for that someone
I was looking for this love in the wrong place
Then I stopped all the running
And I didn't see you coming, was too late
Got my attention in the fading light
And it's a feeling I don't wanna fight
No more searching for that someone
No more looking for that love 'cause I found you
 
(Bridge)
(Chorus)

Memphis In Winter



Verse 1
We're passed the end of nowhere
All along the worn out plane
Where the devil eyes await
And it gets too dark to rain
It gets too dark to rain
Never going through the darkness
Never ever leave my sight
There's just too many crazes
And you can die just beyond the light
 
Verse 2
They say that Jesus saves
Ha well, I've seen none of that down here
I just see people with a hunger
I just see people with a fear
And I can see the jungle roaring
All those huddled in steam
Are they just some hungry mouths to feed?
Or the bitter end of dream?
 
Verse 3
Where the river comes a-rolling
Where the levy tends to break
We're to walk the streets at night, well
It's not a risk that you would take
'Coz it's cold, it's cold down the river
But you can see the Memphis bell
This is no scene from heaven
This could be seen as hell
 
Verse 4
We're passed the end of nowhere
All along the worn out plane
Where the devil eyes await
And it gets too dark to rain
It gets too dark to rain
It gets too dark

Salem Witch Trials



A momentary smile
Then you turn your head to the side
Follow airplane trails
 
In the blue sky
Oh my, oh my
I wanna stay like this forever
 
With you, you by my side
I can walk into the night
Like the old songs in our bones
I will never feel alone
 
And I'll leave no love unknown
No love unknown, it's true
Now that I have you
 
I walk down paths
Know I won't find my way back
But when, when I come to harm
I can always fall into your arms
And close my eyes
Think of God as a feeling
 
With you, you by my side
I can walk into the night
Like the old songs in our bones
I will never feel alone
 
And I'll leave no love unknown
No love unknown, it's true
Now that I have you

Wonder what tomorrow's gonna really bring
Hey if I don't find work tomorrow
It's gonna be (gonna be) heartaches 'n' sorrow
Our love's gonna be destroyed like a tragedy
Just like Romeo and Juliet
Just like Romeo and Juliet
A-Just like Romeo and Juliet
A-Just like Romeo and Juliet
(Just like Romeo and Juliet)
(Just like Romeo and)

Hurry home



He's been sitting by the phone since she left
But it's time for work and he just can't be late
So he grabs his old guitar
And he plays a couple bars on the machine
And then he softly sings
 
It doesn't matter what you've done, I still love you
It doesn't matter where you've been, you can still come home
And honey if it's you, we've got a lot of making up to do
And I can't hug you on the phone, so hurry home
 
Well the message light was blinking when he got back
It was an old friend calling cause he just heard the news
He said 'Man I hope you find her
If I see her I'll remind her that her dad is worried
And wanting her to know'
 
It doesn't matter what you've done, I still love you
It doesn't matter where you've been, you can still come home
And honey if it's you, we've got a lot of making up to do
And I can't hug you on the phone, so hurry home
 
Well the days dragged by without a word from her
And it looked like she might not be coming back
People said 'Man, don't you think it's time to take that old message off'
He said 'No, you never know when she might call'
 
She was just outside a bar in New York City
Her so-called friends had left her all alone
She was scared he wouldn't want her
But she dialed up that old number and let it ring
And then she heard him sing
 
It doesn't matter what you've done, I still love you
It doesn't matter where you've been, you can still come home
And honey if it's you, we've got a lot of making up to do
And I can't hug you on the phone, so hurry home
He walked in just in time to hear her say
'Dad, I'm on my way'

It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas



It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Everywhere you go
Take a look at the five-and-ten
It's glistening once again
With candy canes and silver lanes that glow
 
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Toys in every store
But the prettiest sight to see
Is the holly that will be
On your own front door
 
A pair of hopalong boots and a pistol that shoots
Is the wish of Barney and Ben
Dolls that'll talk and will go for a walk
Is the hope of Janice and Jen
And Mom and Dad can hardly wait
For school to start again
 
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Everywhere you go
There's a tree in the Grand Hotel
One in the park as well
It's the sturdy kind that doesn't mind the snow
 
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Soon the bells will start
And the thing that'll make 'em ring
Is the carol that you sing
Right within your heart
 
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Toys in every store
But the prettiest sight to see
Is the holly that will be
On your own front door
 
Sure it's Christmas once more ...

She Doesn't Know That Yet



He don't act like he ought to
As he puts down one last drink
And he don't talk much like he used to
He just sits back and he thinks
Oh he's leaving her
But she doesn't know that yet
 
Across town, in a broken home
A glass of wine while she waits
And no ring on the telephone
's already half past eight
Oh he's leaving her
But she doesn't know that yet
 
He's got one westbound ticket in hand back to Omaha
Really hates to be leavin' this way
But won't regret movin' on
His bags are packed as he leaves his heart
He's taking all that he has left
Oh he's leaving that girl
But she doesn't know that yet
 
She never knew that he came home
Slipped down the hall to the door
He heard enough to know what she wants
He's never hurt like that before
Oh he's leaving her
But she doesn't know that yet
 
He's got one westbound ticket in hand back to Omaha
Really hates to be leavin' this way
But won't regret movin' on
His bags are packed as he leaves his heart
He's taking all that he has left
Oh he's leaving that girl
But she doesn't know that yet
 
Oh she doesn't know
 
He draws a shade to the window
That train slowly pulls away
The hardest part of change is letting go
Holding on to words he couldn't say
Oh he's leaving her
But she doesn't know that yet

Billie Jean [Michael Jackson Cover]



She was more like a beauty queen from a movie scene
I said, Don't mind, but what do you mean, I am the one
Who will dance on the floor in the round?
She said I am the one
Who will dance on the floor, in the round
 
She told me her name was Billie Jean
As she caused a scene
Then every head turned with eyes that dreamed of being the one
Who will dance on the floor in the round
 
People always told me, Be careful of what you do
Don't go around breaking young girls hearts
And mother always told me, Be careful of who you love
And be careful of what you do
Cause the lie becomes the truth
 
Billie Jean is not my lover
She's just a girl who claims that I am the one
But the kid is not my son,
She says I am the one
But the kid is not my son
 
For forty days and for forty nights, the law was on her side
But who can stand when she's in demand?
Her schemes and plans
Cause we danced on the floor in the round,
So take my strong advice, just remember to always think twice
 
People always told me, Be careful of what you do
And don't go around breaking young girls' hearts
And mother always told me, Be careful of who you love
And be careful of what you do
Cause the lie becomes the truth
 
Billie Jean is not my lover
She's just a girl who claims that I am the one
But the kid is not my son
She says I am the one
But the kid is not my son

Michael McIlveen



Standing in remembrance, they won't forget the slaughter
Battered in a dark orange street
And loyal Ballymena wouldn't give him any quarter
Wee Mickey-Bo was battered off his feet
A bigot with a Bible quote and scripture
Ignores the children spilling out their soul
 
But life goes on
We carry on
We'll right the wrong
Before too long
 
From cradle to the grave, the toll it takes for the devil
They want the virgin Mary as their Queen
We'd stick them in the ghetto and if they raise above their station
We'll beat them down like Michael McIlveen
Well tell us now he won't get into heaven
They'll probably be a picket on the church
 
But life goes on
We carry on
We'll right the wrong
Before too long
 
And the bigotry is just beneath the surface
Just scratch your nearest peeler, judge or screw
The chosen few
Front of the queue
The Fenian Jews cling to the pews
 
There's Henry Joy McCracken, Betty Gray and Robert Emmet
The huns today, they couldn't lace their boots
They gave the right for freedom, no surrender to oppression
They're spinning in their graves in orange boots
Now we offer them a land where there'll be equals
Ah, but equal isn't good enough for some
Run, Michael, run
Before they come
The crown has claimed another son
 
Now we offer them a land where there'll be equals
Ah, but equal isn't good enough for some
Run, Michael, run
Before they come
Ah, the crown has claimed another son

Sovereign Over Us



There is strength within the sorrow
There is beauty in our tears
And You meet us in our mourning
With a love that casts out fear
You are working in our waiting
You're sanctifying us
When beyond our understanding
You're teaching us to trust
 
Your plans are still to prosper
You have not forgotten us
You're with us in the fire and the flood
You're faithful forever
Perfect in love
You are sovereign over us
 
You are wisdom unimagined
Who could understand Your ways
Reigning high above the Heavens
Reaching down in endless grace
You're the lifter of the lowly
Compassionate and kind
You surround and You uphold me
And Your promises are my delight
 
Your plans are still to prosper
You have not forgotten us
You're with us in the fire and the flood
You're faithful forever
Perfect in love
You are sovereign over us
Your plans are still to prosper
You have not forgotten us
You're with us in the fire and the flood
You're faithful forever
Perfect in love
You are sovereign over us
 
Even what the enemy means for evil
You turn it for our good
You turn it for our good and for Your glory
Even in the valley, You are faithful
You're working for our good
You're working for our good and for Your glory
 
Even what the enemy means for evil
You turn it for our good
You turn it for our good and for Your glory
Even in the valley, You are faithful
You're working for our good
You're working for our good and for Your glory
 
Your plans are still to prosper
You have not forgotten us
You're with us in the fire and the flood
You're faithful forever
Perfect in love
You are sovereign over us
You're faithful forever
Perfect in love
You are sovereign over us

Cry, Cry, Cry



Hello
 
Hello
How have you been
I feel like I'm losing again
I telephone all of my friends
I can't believe that you wanted to end
 
Then I look into your eyes (no one's there)
Everytime we try to talk (it's just not fair)
Well it came as a surprise (cause of
Baby don't you realize
 
Why why why
Won't you try try try
I wanna cry cry cry
And I could die just die
 
You better stop this game
Before you push off my love away
I wanna cry cry cry over you
 
Hello
How do you do
This emptiness reminds me of you
There wasn't one thing I wouldn't do
I thought that one was for, it could do
 
Then I needed you to be (by my side)
And you said you'll always be
Now you're pushing me away (anytime)
Baby I want you to say 'Hey I wanna listen'
 
Why why why
Won't you try try try
I wanna cry cry cry
And I could die just die
 
You better stop this game
Before you push off my love away
I wanna cry cry cry over you
 
Then I look into your eyes (no one's there)
Everytime we try to talk (it's just not fair)
Well it came as a surprise (cause of
Baby don't you realize
 
Why why why
Won't you try try try
I wanna cry cry cry
And I could die just die
 
You better stop this game
Before you push off my love away
I'm gonna cry cry cry
Cry cry cry
I wanna cry cry cry over you
 
Cry cry cry over you

They Are Falling All Around Me



They are falling all around me
They are falling all around me
They are falling all around me
The strongest leaves of my tree
 
Every paper brings the news that
Every paper brings the news that
Every paper brings the news that
The teachers of my life
Are moving on
Are moving on
Oh-woah
 
Death comes and rests so heavy
Death comes and rests so heavy
Death comes and rests so heavy
Your face I'll never see
I'll never see you anymore
 
But I'm not really gonna leave you
I'm not really gonna leave you
You're not really gonna leave me
It is your path I walk
It is your song I sing
It is your load I take on
It is your air I breathe
 
It's the record you set that makes me go on
It's your strength that makes me stand
You're not really
You're not really gonna leave me
 
I have tried to sing my song right
I have tried to sing my song right
I have tried to sing my song right
Be sure to let me hear
From you

Stay



I should run away, but I stay, stay, stay
 
You make it hard for me to love you
The way you break us when you lose control
I know you need me to come over
The way I feel the need to heal your soul
 
You know you're screw-screw-screwing me up (Me up)
But I still fall hard for your love (Your love)
And I know this isn't right, it's a feeling I can't fight
Oh, I know, know, know, whoa
 
I should run away, but I stay, stay, stay
I should run away, but I stay, stay, stay
You know that we're sufferin'
But you don't see nothin' but you, ooh-whoa
I should run away, but I stay, stay, stay
 
I know you don't want me to let go (Yeah)
I'm tryna burn but then you act so cold
Oh, I can't breathe down in the water (Yeah)
I didn't think that I would get so low
 
You know you're screw-screw-screwing me up (Me up)
But I still fall hard for your love (Your love)
And I know this isn't right, it's a feeling I can't fight
Oh, I know, know, know, whoa
 
I should run away, but I stay, stay, stay
I should run away, but I stay, stay, stay
You know that we're sufferin'
But you don't see nothin' but you, ooh-whoa
I should run away, but I stay, stay, stay
 
Stay, stay, stay, mmm
Stay, stay, stay
 
I should run away, but I stay, stay, stay
I should run away, but I stay, stay, stay
You know that we're sufferin'
But you don't see nothin' but you, ooh-whoa
I should run away, but I stay, stay, stay

Cry



Hanging up our pictures
Making sure they're centered and straight
Smirking at the memories
Wanting dreams for us to create
 
Where have you gone?
Where are you now?
 
The world goes round
I'm pretending I'm fine
Swallowing loneliness
Drowning you out
The dramatical kind
Since you crossed the line
 
But I will not let
You see me cry
Cry
I won't cry
No
 
Airing out the laundry
Folding in smoldering cause don't show (?)
Waiting for the spring to come
Watching the snow
Encapsule our home
 
Why do you leave?
How could you go?
 
The world went back up
With me thinking I'm kind
Biting and snapping like nobody should
Still misunderstood
And lost in adulthood
 
But I will not let
You see me cry
 
If you had the chance,
Would you do things differently?
Would you still run away
Leaving me here
To fend for myself
Defending myself
Pretending yourself
That your choices are OK?
 
The world could come down
But I'm so afraid
Waiting for growing
Before passions fade
Mistakes have been made
But look, babe
I stayed
And maybe
Well maybe
I won't ever let
You see me cry
 
Stand by my side
And now promise I'd
Well I tried
To let you see me cry
Cry
Cry

On Your Way



Bombs bursting in air
Hazy from rocket's red glare
All on your own
On your way anywhere
 
Love, just in case you've not heard
It's been run ragged, a ghost of a word
But hope kind of stuck
And with any luck
 
Maybe next summer, maybe by fall
Well, if not then, I am sure you'll recall
That our gloomy December will brighten by May
You're on your way
 
Taking that train to the end of the line
Sometimes you think it's a faulty design
And wonder for when
And hope until then
 
Maybe next summer, maybe by fall
Well, if not then, I am sure you'll recall
That our gloomy December will brighten by May
You're on your way
 
So maybe take him with you
Feel all the love around here
 
But take it from me, eventually
 
Maybe next summer, maybe by fall
Well, if not then, I am sure you'll recall
That our gloomy December will brighten by May
And you're on your way.

Solid Ground



How does it feel when it's quiet and calm?
And will I be denied?
How will it feel when it's time to move on?
Mother says kneel and pray
When it gets hard, I will roll those sleeves
Life can be so unkind
I will be found on the edge of the world
Where there'll be no one around
 
Oh, solid ground
Solid ground
Solid ground
Solid ground
 
How does it feel to be on your own?
No one can understand
I know I'm here and I don't belong
I'm on my knees today
When it gets dark, I will know no fear
Life can be so unkind
Hanging around on the edge of the world
Finally no one around
 
Oh, would you help me?
I don't understand
Is it over?
Am I losing solid ground?
 
Solid ground
Solid ground
Solid ground
Solid ground
Solid ground
Solid ground
Solid ground
Solid ground

The Ballad of Elizabeth Dark (Live)



Let me sing you the ballad of Elizabeth Dark
I been workin' on it since the time
We hung out at this coffeehouse in Rogers Park
Like two kids at a five-and-dime
She would read Dostoevsky by the yellow moon
That hung like an orange in the tree
While I worked on the words to the mystery tune
Of Elizabeth Dark and me
 
This was back in the days of the folk music craze
And Lenny and poetry and jazz
Cats and chicks snappin' their fingers
To Lord Buckley doing The Nazz
Kierkegaard, Ginsberg, Sartre and free love
Parties to cover the rent
We all wanted to be existentialists
None of us knew what the hell it meant
 
Now I take the El to Loyola
And walk along the Sheridan sand
Where the waves are breakin' over the jetty
Where the wind is like an icy hand
Fyodor says that the criminal
Always returns to the scene of the crime
Maybe I'll see Elizabeth D one more time
 
Her hair was long and flowin'
A river of zen down her back
We had spaghetti with Ferlinghetti
And wine with Jack Kerouac
Things were real cool
One day I came home from school
And Elizabeth Dark wasn't there
No river of raven zen hair
No Dark at the top of the stairs
 
Now I take the El to Loyola
Walk along the Sheridan sand
Where the waves are breakin' over the jetty
Where the wind is like an icy hand
Fyodor says that the criminal
Always returns to the scene of the crime
Maybe I'll see Elizabeth D one more time
 
Sometimes I get out my old bongos
Reminisce about makin' the scene
Read my tarot, tell my fortune from grounds
In a beat-up espresso machine
I'm a beatnik lost in the future
Like a Model T Ford out in space
Still as in love with Elizabeth Dark
As the first time I saw her face
 
Now I take the El to Loyola
And I walk along the Sheridan sand
Where the waves are breakin' over the jetty
Where the wind is like an icy hand
Fyodor says that the criminal
Always returns to the scene of the crime
Maybe I'll see Elizabeth D one more time
Maybe I'll see Elizabeth D one more time

Looking for Maureen



We used to play hide and go seek
Around the age of seven
In that schoolyard, it was unique
To find a place to hide
But we tried
Not a tree, not a flower
Just the pavements of summer
Close your eyes and count real slow
Even long ago
It seemed to me that I was always
Looking for Maureen
 
And when we played who do you love
Somewhere around eleven
It was Maureen that I thought of
Though it was clear to see
I filled her with ennui
I used to send her valentines
With honey bees that said Bee Mine
Oh, I never signed my name though
My sister Margaret let me know
A couple girls liked me, but I was always
Looking for Maureen
 
I saw her once down at the shore
Thought I'd died and gone to heaven
It must have been the year before
We both turned twenty-one
Man, it was pretty fun
We rode the wild mouse
We got lost in the haunted house
She looked just like my first wife
I've been playing hide and seek all my life
Ally all in free, but I was always
Looking for Maureen
