YOU SAY AH

YOU SAY AH

I saw a light before me

I saw it coming for me

A big sun

2 tons

Open a door before me

He said

Let’s take a trip

She said

A silver ship

Dreamin’

Of better kicks

Ah, You Say Ah

Baby this moment is all we’ve got

You Say Ah

Look at

What I’ve become

Speaking

Your native tongue

Freedom

Is why I come

Ah, You Say Ah

Maybe this moment is all we’ve got

You Say Ah

I’m sailing up

Save me a place on the rail, won’t ya

You Say Ah

Keep it

Secret

Meet me

By the window here we go

Ah, You Say Ah

‘Cuz runaway girl’s never gonna stop

You Say Ah

I’m sailing up

Maybe this moment is all we’ve got

You Say Ah

IVY

She calculates me with her hands

She counts her breath in grains of sand

She has a Monet and a friend

She likes to smile at married men

Ivy

Full of envy

grows around a fence inside the yard

Ivy

Can you hear me

Wind your way into another heart

I’d like to carve her face in stone

And then I’d never be alone

She is getting in too deep

Deeper than the sea

(chorus)

Wind your way into another lonely heart

into a heart

another lonley heart

Ivy

Full of envy

grows around a fence inside the yard

Ivy

Can you hear me

Wind your way into another heart

OH MARY

Oh, Mary why are you crying

Won’t you come and open the door

You haven’t been around lately

Won’t you come and open the door

On fences, on airplanes wings the see you when you come on down

In ice cream cakes and frosting they can see you smiling when they’re down

Won’t you come around

Oh Mary, so many love you

Don’t you know what they ask for

They come every Saturday morning

won’t you come and open the door

On surfboards with cameras they conjure up the shadows

For hours, plastic flowers, unseen powers when you’re appearing now

Oh Mary, so many love you

Don’t you know what they ask for

They come every Saturday morning

won’t you come around once more

Oh Mary why are you crying

No one comes around anymore

They haven’t seen you lately

Won’t you come and open the door

Won’t you come and open the door

Won’t you come and open the door

HAPPINESS

So we started out

In cold and dark

And I wanted more

From your heart

So I’ll go ahead

And I won’t look back

No, I won’t look back again, again

No, I won’t look back again

I…..I’m out of the rain

Watershed is flowing down

I’m free again

I….I’m out of the mess

Showering down something strange

It’s happiness

Oh my arms

are tired and cold

From flying for us both

But I won’t let go

Of my soul this time

No, I won’t let go of my soul again

No, I won’t let go of my soul again

I…..I’m out of the rain

Watershed is flowing down

I’m free again

I….I’m out of the mess

Showering down something strange

It’s happiness

I….I’m out of the mess

Showering down something strange

It’s happiness

It’s happiness

It’s happiness

QUIET

Quiet

You don’t have to be quiet

When you come and go (all around the…)

And you come and go

So softly

Soft like feathers

slowly, floating circles in the snow

and you come and go

come and go

Sweetly

you were singing so sweetly

in the summer dawn

falling gently down

like raindrops

warm llike heather

holding on to nothing in the breeze

as the sun sinks low

come and go

Falling awake

morning reminds me

there is a place

no one can find me

here we breathe

disappearing

Quiet

You don’t have to be quiet

When you come and go

And you come and go

like daylight

purple twilight

yesterday is gone so calico

and you come and go

come and go

THE UNIVERSE TONIGHT

IRRESISTIBLE YOU

Eyes sideways

Hands steady

Target moving

Finger ready

You’re ice in summer

You’re candy cane

Bees in the honey

And I’m helpless again, you’re

Irresistible

Irresistible you

Irresistible

Irresistible you

Smell the rose

Feel the bloom

Sing the song

I am so into you

I’m slipping inside you

Overwhelmed

Are you feeling it you

Irresistible

Irresistible you

Irresistible

Irresistible you

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE

Lay your heart on my body

Lay your head on my sleeve

Lay down beside me

Let your soul be released

You give me

Love, Love, Love

Love so free

Love, Love, Love

I am complete

Old man tends to a garden

Young girl sings in her sleep

Warm wind carries a blue bird

Like you carry me

You give me

Love, Love, Love

Love so free

Love, Love, Love

I am complete

Baby’s got a gold heart

Tall tree grows from a seed

Water, love and sunshine

Are all we really need

You give me

Love, Love, Love

Love so free

Love, Love, Love

I am complete

LUCKY

How lucky …..

can you get

Someone, somewhere paid your debt

I call that lucky

as a son of a bitch can get

Everyone wants you

Did you ever think when you were young and like a puppy

you would ever be the girl

See the sun is coming up and there’s your silver lining

Somehow you’ve changed your world

Did you use your body

or did you use your heart

You’re so popular

Born under a lucky star

I am an angry girl in an angry world and I’m suffering

You got the easy road,

easy as you go smooth sailing right past me

(Chorus)

Did you walk a crooked line kiss the dice a second time

You’re in the limelight now

Acting like a movie queen stealing someone else’s scene

Look how you lay down

(Chorus)

I wanna be a lucky girl

I wanna be a lucky girl

MRS. GREEN

Hey, Mrs. Green

There’s a light in the Holland Tunnel you can’t see

Hey, Mrs. Green

Do you even know that winter’s turned to spring

Twenty years is long enough

to wait for him who gave you up

No explanation ever came

But your child bears his name

Mr. Arthur Green

Was a nice young man who wanted to write poetry

He declared his love

Then hit the road and never came back that spring

Do you remember when you made love

while Jimmy sang

You think every day he will return

But he never thinks of her

He never thinks of her

Late at night he lays down and dreams… Mrs. Green

Hey, Mr. Green

You live a nice rich life and have another family

I can’t believe

You can pick and chose which will be your memories

Neither can the first Mrs. Green.

SOMEDAY

Someday

Someday

Wish I could say

Don’t feel a thing

That the agony was for nothing

But if wishes all came true

There’d be a perfect me and you

Someday

I’ll see you on the milky way and I’ll wave

and I won’t feel a thing

Someday

We’ll laugh about how lost we are

Someday

I’ll see you again

and all will be well with the world

Now I know why it was meant to be

Splashing down on the street

You and me are a mystery

Fools for a day

Far away

A million years and counting

Gods play

With us and it’s okay

(Chorus)

Far away

A million years and counting

Fly around

Don’t look at the ground

(Chorus)

HELLO

It’s a bitter wisdom

Standing here upon the other side

You don’t look so beautiful in this light

Since I’ve been gone

Part of me is between the right and wrong

Tell me what’s going on

I know you don’t want to talk about it

And I don’t really want to know

But there’s something going on inside your soul

Here we are

Ripped apart

And when do we wake up

In another time and space

I still love you

You’re not alone

Hello

Silent morning

Agonizing, soul destroying

We twist and spin the mannequin

In so many ways

You and I, we dance a strange ballet

And I’m afraid

I sacrificed words at the table

And you don’t really want to know

I see something going on inside your soul

Here we are

Ripped apart

And when do we wake up

In another time and space

I still love you

You’re not alone

Hello

JANUARY

January

got me through

February

without you

Did you think I’d stand

for an ordinary man

Now you’re going overboard and

No one’s really overjoyed and

Why’d you have to hold my hand too soon

Green and grassy

our promise plan

We were laughing

we were love

Did they think I’d stand

for an ordinary man

Now you’re going overboard and

No one’s really overjoyed and

Why’d you have to hold my hand too soon

Running softly, fields of your kiss

Secret promise keeps

Rolling sea took you from me

These were our days

These our days of

January

March is getting so much colder and

I am growing slowly older

How’s a girl supposed to wait til June

But I’ll wait for you

I’ll wait for you

For you

IT’S ALRIGHT

I know you better than no one

Your satellite is pointed my way

Sky high, riding on a jet stream

I’ll bring the tang, you bring the tangerine

Are you ready to fly

It’s alright

You must be leading me somewhere

(It’s alright)

You turned my heart into hardware

Today’s the day

The world spins the other way

When you hold me tight

Everything’s alright

Hey, do you think about who you

Would like to trip through space with sometime

The world is turning, but I’m standing still

Spinning faster than a chariot wheel

Can I hitch a ride?

Today’s the day

The world spins the other way

When you hold me tight

Everything’s alright

The sun will burn, the stars will fall, we’ll fill the universe tonight

Kiss me, hold me just like you told me you know

Baby, it’s alright

WHO CARRIES YOU

Is, this what you get

From what you left and didn’t do

Is this what you’ve chosen

The door was left open

Now the choice has chosen you

In the rough

Have you had enough

You’re a pro at going nowhere fast but down

Who carries you this time

When you swore it’s the last time

That’s good advice from one who likes to

Think that they should know

So, stuck in slow motion

Watching yourself slip further to

Ends of an ocean

No twist of fate to pull you through

Is it time, for your line

Where’s the audience to watch your final bow

Who carries you this time

When you swore it’s the last time

That’s good advice from one who likes to

Think that they should know

Wasn’t it good enough to try

Reaching inside you, it’s a lie

The attempt was made

But it didn’t take

I should know

I’ll carry you this time

But I swear it’s the last time

I take advice from one who likes to

Think that they should know

SURRENDER

To give the flower

You must cut it down

To get the gift

You must rip it open

And if you fall

Surrender

Let it all fall away

And the rain will fill a river to carry you

To sing the song

Stop talking

To walk the walk

Stop running

And if you fall

Surrender

Let it all fall away

And the rain will fill a river to carry you

Can you say

Is this the day?

Is today the day I die?

Could I say that it’s alright?

Everything I wanted

I had to lose

Holding on too tightly

Took me from you

And there’s nothing left that I can do, but

Surrender

Surrender

Love and love and love will carry you

BRING ME THE HEAD OF ETERNITY

WAITED FOR YOU

The moment of truth at the burning stake

Trying to hold the hand of a different fate

I waited for your answer but it was too late

I waited for you

Used to be so easy living here with you

I used to feel like an angel, I used to

But lately I have noticed you’ve got better things to do

I waited for you

I waited for you, I waited for you

I waited for you, I waited for you

I gave you my heart but you never knew

How I waited for you

If I was a doctor I would fix your brain

But away the wire that keeps you sane

But the fire’s getting lower and it’s starting to rain

(chorus)

We suffer in the silence of an ancient fate

It’s harder to love and it’s easy to hate

What we really need is a tasteful escape

So there’s no crying

I waited for you, I waited for you

I waited for you, I waited for you

I gave you my heart but you never knew

How I waited for you

HIDING

Can you dig deep down inside

Do you seek what you can’t find

All the visions make you blind

To all the places you’ve been hiding

Who has done these things to you

Left you silent and so bruised

Left your heart so black and blue

In the darkness you can’t find it

Let me help you

Let me help you

Let me help you find your heart

It’s been hiding

You’re so scared and so alone

I will give you what you need

Like a mother to a child

I will hold you til you sleep

Keep the secrets safe outside

Kiss the dragons when you dream

When we face the morning light

Look for truth and look for kindness

Let me help you

Let me help you

Let me help you find your heart

It’s been hiding

BLUE

Blue

Was the color of the distance

Blue

Was the color of you

Who knew

When all was said and done between us

I’d be

The innocent fool

Now I’m out of the spell you spun

I can see green trees, I can feel the sun

I’ve got a key to my own front room

But everytime I look in the mirror – I see you

Blue

Was the color of the distance

Blue

Was the color of you

Not like a summer’s day

When the bluebirds sang us a serenade

Not like the twilight sky

When I took your hand I felt a chill in mine

Blue

Was the color of the distance

Blue

Was the color of you

NO ONE GETS ENOUGH

There’s a girl in a gingham dress

There’s a boy locked in his room

There’s a sin I can’t confess

There’s a heart you break in two

When you say you don’t need love

But no one gets enough

Who built the wall around your heart

What secret makes you hide

I have tried to tear it down

Brick by brick I have to climb

When you say you don’t need love

But no one gets enough

You can say,you don’t need love

You can say,you don’t need love

You can say,you don’t need love

You can say,you don’t need love

But no one gets enough

We can’t get enough…

RAINBOW MAN

Lost in face, saving grace

Time is only empty space

The vacant stare the glossy glare

But no one dares to lose the race

Wishing minutes could be days

Begs to borrow stolen ways

Rest assured there is no cure

For what is pure is just a phase

The end is near

As the power churns

And the hours burn like years

Left in chains

Random fear only learns to reappear

In the strangest of places

Where the proudest of faces

Are smiling ear to ear

Rainbow man locked away

For trying to do the right thing

The wrong way

What can I say

Nothing is forever

Nothing is free

Nothing is good enough for me

(chorus)

Greater than a mountain

Deeper than the sea

Nothing is good enough for me

NO SYMPATHY

He’s from a broken home

His father left him long ago

Watched too much mtv

That’s what they said to the jury

She walked down a suburban street

Summer night false security

She wasn’t doing anything

And was a victim of his violence

Violating violence

He ran and struck her down

Ripped her shirt as she hit the ground

She screams and she shakes

She pays for what he takes

Sympathy

No sympathy

Now she is a shell

A sliver of her former self

There’s no sympathy in hell

When you’re a victim of violence

Violating violence

Is that the way of the world

Is that what boys learn about girls

They scream they shake

They pay for what he takes

Sympathy

No sympathy

How does it feel to be sent downtown

How does it feel on prison grounds

I hope you scream i hope you shake

I hope you pay for what you take

Sympathy

no sympathy

Sympathy

no sympathy

I ENVY YOU

You stand there like an empty page

I’m feeling like a child inside

Lost in outer space

You let nothing carry you away

Like I’m waiting for the sky to fall

And to put you in its place

And I envy you

I envy you

The smile I could almost see through

I envy you

la la la…

The door is open and the lions are free

Yet you seem to be at peace

While the world crumbles at your feet

I could throw my fist and make you bleed

Still your heart hasn’t moved

Yet somewhere in me it tried to beat

And I envy you

I envy you

Nothing could break you in two

I envy you

I envy you

I envy you

Your blood will always be blue

I envy you

la la la la….

I wish that I was born yesterday

You put your arm around anything

But I can’t be that way

REVELATION (Midwest Revelation)

We’re children walking wounded

Talking empty words

Planted in a cornfield

Staring at the birds

Fly across a million dollar sky

searching the horizon for a sign

No guts and no gloryTake me to the mountains

Homogenized and fedTake me to the sea

No Happy Father’s Day storyTake me anywhere

When you’re 12 and left for dead I can be free

Fly across a million dollar sky

searching the horizon for a sign

We’re children walking woundedTake me to the mountains

Hoping it’s a dream Take me to the sea

Burning barns and bridges ÔCause this green

What I need As far as I can see

Is a revelation

Fly across a million dollar sky

searching the horizon for a sign

Fly, Fly

Fly come on fly

What I need is a revelation.

HOME

I can see you now

Smiling as you wave

We’re going, going, going

To a different place

Miles of green grass

Face pressed to the glass

I’m leaving, leaving, leaving

While your memory fades to black

Now I’m here

There are lemons in the backyard here (going nowhere fast)

There are pictures on the sidewalk here (holding to the last)

But I just want to stay inside – trying to find (trying not to try)

My way home

Took a trip today

No one knows my name

I keep thinking there’s an answer

Some magical answer in my hat

(Chorus)

(Bridge)

But I’m still here

Paying music in the backroom here (go)

Trying to find a place to hide in here (go)

I just want to stay inside – trying to find (home)

My way home

I can see you now.

Smiling as you wave…
