Falling Down

earphones in
not listening
midnight traffic passing
i watch you walk
dangerous and sweet
a happier off broadway actress

from the first rays of light
you are always on my mind
you're clowning around
i'm losing my balance and falling down
red christmas lights
cold mornings and desert skies
there's no one else like you
i'm losing my balance and falling down
feels like i'm falling

i see you talk
dark and soft
like nobody knows you
birds fly in twos
why not me and you
i always feel like my clothes don't fit right

from the first rays of light
you are always on my mind
you're clowning around
i'm losing my balance and falling down
red christmas lights
cold mornings and desert skies
there's no one else like you
i'm losing my balance and falling down

you stepped into my arms
wind swirling all your charms
small talk about you and i
and why did i laugh at that

i see you walk
dangerous and sweet
a happier off broadway actress

from the first rays of light
you're clowning around
i'm losing my balance and falling down
red christmas lights
cold mornings and desert skies
there's no one else like you
i'm losing my balance and falling down
why did i laugh

Girl Graffiti

dark hair unfurling in the wind
moonlight on your tattooed skin
windows down, starlight in
the world outside us

passing spray painted walls you're street art
flown economy i've been set free
hold me in your arms call me sweetie
through the snowy season

she's always found the dream to be better than the real one
she always chose the dream over the real one
girl graffiti
girl graffiti

with the order in take a seat
the coffees poured the empties clean
scan the skyline through the naked trees
the world outside us

see you on the street you've been set free
you don't know what you think
it's a cardboard box from the liquor store
she keeps my letters in

she's always found the dream to be better than the real one
she always chose the dream over the real one
girl graffiti
girl graffiti
you're so much better

lonely you carry it still
like your hometown
you're breaking the deal
tried to make it a force of will
like a bad vibe
you carry it still

Dave Sharkey to the Dance Floor

it was 1986
she was listening to prince
in a red karmann ghia
and he was holding back the waves
in an abandoned farm house
she's hot or not for you
maybe this time she'll come around

dave sharkey to the dance floor
he knew that there was something more
dave sharkey to the dance floor
are you freaking out

there was always a photo taken
before they could leave and go to the dance
and drink wine coolers karaoke at econo lodge
singing summer wind
summertime affair won't end

dave sharkey to the dance floor
he knew that there was something more
dave sharkey to the dance floor
are you freaking out

he found his spot
he's not alone when he lets go
dave sharkey to the dance floor

through the gymnasium doors
to the cheap synthetic bass of midnight star
she held out her hands of which had only
one white glove
this time he's not alone when he lets go

dave sharkey to the dance floor
he knew that there was something more
dave sharkey to the dance floor
are you freaking out

Super 8mm

snow is falling
it's melting in your hair
standing out in the cold neon air
the bartender is dragging the trash out to the curb
button your coat
no place left but home

saint cecilia is crying at a richmond dive
i want you to find me
i think i've been missing for a while

here comes that band that was drinking in the parking lot
tell me what it says on the gold charm 'round your neck
now you're in slow motion
now you're breaking up
now i am like a shakey hand held camera

saint cecilia is crying at a downtown dive
i want you to find me
think i've been missing for a while

the girl who works here is crying in the bathroom
i tried to stop you
but you got into a place
you could not explain to anyone

my rose my dove
my mexican girl
tell me that joke again till everyone else goes away
jam box on the dashboard
playing the pretenders
now i am like a blown out hand held super 8mm

this old town is for dry cleaners
violinists and street sweepers
and dreamers like us

saint cecilia is crying at a richmond dive
i want you to find me
i think i've been missing for a while
i tried to stop you, but you got into a cab
and drove away into the night

my rose my dove

My Own Cloud

on new years day
thought i saw you on the train
people are bundled up out on the street
long after silence i’ve become strange

strange holiday
feel my breath escape
lights flickering on the train
in the city, in vain

and i don’t owe you anymore of my attention
show me the way out of here
into the clear
on my own cloud
my own cloud

another day come up
bullet proof 3 a.m.
you changed the game
you placed the blame
my friends are careful not to mention your name

i don’t owe you anymore of my attention
show me the way out of here
into the clear
on my own cloud
as cold sunlight shinning through the bare branches
show me the way out of here
into the clear
on my own cloud

Headboards and Aspirin

headboards and aspirin
i quit my job i’m sleeping in
i still depend on waking up again

headboards and aspirin
i lost the girl i’m sleeping with
it’s my time to spend
it’s your time to end

headboards and aspirin
i dreamt i went back again
footprints in cement
wasn’t what i meant

there’s a chill on my skin
hey there’s a person in my skin
sometimes it’s me
and sometimes it’s him

headboards and aspirin
i felt the cold porcelain
i still depend on time pressing in
yeah i still depend on headboards and aspirin

Through the Crowd

we could call the whole thing off i’d understand
i would never tie you down or rope you in
if there’s a reason to be cautious
i’m not worried about it

look at you you’re moving fast through the neighborhood
walking by a taxi stall and standing still
if there’s a reason to be cautious
i’m not worried about it

and it’s always man i’ve got something on my mind
we don’t stand a chance
it’s really only time
it’s really only time

dreaming i lost myself i said too much
waking up in the same shirt i’m somewhere else
if there’s a reason to be cautious
i’m not worried about it
we were walking through the crowd

My Pretty Quirk

i’m jaded but i made it
there’s no bullet holes in my head
and waking up i’m guilty again
you’re back in my bed and it’s still a mess
and you’re my pretty quirk

you should see yourself when you’re asleep
i never thought you could be so mean
you’re like a great white shark in a lake
an inside joke i can’t explain

and you’re my pretty quirk

you got all of us just hanging around
we should pick up our things and be homeward bound

i’m jaded, but i made it
there’s no bullet holes in my head
and waking up i’m guilty again
i’m back in your life and it’s still a mess
my pretty quirk

Girl Waiting

life goes on everyday
all she thinks about is the last
in a plastic lawn chair drinking crystal light
eyes so deep he could almost swim in them

blue bicycle in gravel driveway
black birds on the wire
at gypsy elaine’s off i 90
apprentice airbrushing

and she feels so free in the dusty sunlight
like she just flew in like she’s leaving soon
brown chevy van in silvery lamp light
stars so big he could almost hand her one
hail falls for rain on the girl waiting

on the fridge a photo booth picture of
their last night back east
in his winter hat and blurry kiss
she could still smell the beach town sheets

and she feels so free in the dusty sunlight
like she just flew in like she’s leaving soon
by the rio grande in the silvery lamp light
stars so big he could almost hand her one
hail falls for rain on the girl waiting
for her ship to come in
hail falls for rain on the girl waiting

and she feels so free when the records playing
like she just flew in like she’s leaving soon
brown chevy van in the silvery lamp light
stars so big he could almost hand her one
hail falls for rain on the girl waiting

All My Asshole Friends

talking shop on a cigarette break
wearing pants that gotta hurt
carrying a case of demo tapes
that sounded better in ‘98

all my asshole friends with names like kevin
k e v i n asshole
all my asshole friends i can’t remember
i can’t remember have we met?

back at work on the casio 10
writing what will never end
on the phone stumblin in
out at night d-d-d-do it again

and you know all my asshole friends with names like mitch
m i t c h asshole
all my asshole friends i can’t remember
i can't remember have we met?

i should leave them to shine in the light
i should leave them to shine in the light
of the local bar grease in their hair
talking about when they were first here
all i know is i haven’t heard
one good reason why i should leave ‘em

cause even though they might get uptight
and talk about irrelevant things
they’re only trying to handle
their chemical imbalance

and you know all my asshole friends with names like leo
l e o asshole
all my asshole friends i can’t remember
i can’t remember have we met?

i can’t remember
i can’t remember
have we met?

Into the Blue

i put on my face
i make things to break
for my own sake
it’s nothing at all

into the blue
untried and true
do what you gotta do
it’s nothing at all

all that remains
is something worth keeping
when you walk away
just keep on breathing

like it’s nothing at all
nothing at all

Blue Always Finds Me

everything that was inside is now out
ending up where it begins
tears in your eyes
it's a beautiful life

it all lays in wait to come to me
stars fall asleep and smother me
i go far away
blue always finds me

sun in my mind each time it rains
christmas in cushing town seems just like a dream
nothing waiting on me there
everything up in the air

it all lays in wait to come to me
stars fall asleep and smother me
i go far away, blue always finds me
days go by slow, and years just fade away

green george washington stamp
the cars are long and black
on a postcard from sanderson
we are going out to marfa
then to the oil field
it's cold here in the mountains

and it all lays in wait to come to me
stars fall asleep and smother me
i go far away
blue always finds me

Dream State Flying

outside my window
the clouds don't look like clouds
i'm high above it now
why's the pilot's voice so loud
we carry on, i don't know how

somewhere in light years
what did you say i was checked out
this is the road we're headed down
it stopped raining, the sun came out
like years ago
i remember it now

everything around me now
goes to sleep, i'm waking up
everything around me now
til the white noise drowns it out

the rumble of the jets
above the lights of my home town
it all came back
it goes on and on
why's the pilot's voice so loud

Down

just leave it alone
nothing changes
when i was yours
when we were strangers
in the headlines
painted in the corner
back to where you know, feeling ok
looking for your feet no one to blame

outside my building, the deal is breaking, breaking
what goes down goes down
what goes down

now it's give and take
what's yours is yours
from a lullaby, on nightmare street
perfectly alone, not totally screwed
came like the first words
let them be amused
can't you tell yet
i don't believe you

outside my building the deal is breaking, breaking
what goes down goes down
what goes down goes down, down

trouble in mind, secret for a friend
you know how to be tongue tied
til the things you said make sense again
you know i just don't see it happening for you

just leave it alone
into a split second
out in the empty street
like slanted rain

outside my building the deal is breaking, breaking
and what goes down goes down
what goes down goes down
what goes down goes down
what goes down goes down
down

Flicker in My Eye

loves ashes
cinders burning
these arms that once held you
like a sunset and the sea
like a sneaky thief
like the gulls flapping wings
how quickly we've ended up, strangers

just a flicker in my eye

like smoke from a fire
a child in a chair
your clever eyes
your long brown hair
as the shopkeepers closed
crowds passed us by
time has no patience
as we say goodbye

just a flicker in my eye

the rainy pavement's glimmering
like a hundred sparks gone white
and in your heart you feel it don't you
when it is all over
it is all over
it is all over

and so i teased you
to ease the air
when sadness is stinging
when there's no reply

just a flicker in my eye
just a flicker in my eye
just a flicker in my eye

Amelia Bright

here lies amelia bright
in a red 50's dress from a thrift shop nearby
i laid on my back and stared at the sky
with amelia bright

hey something it's new
it got into me, and i
hope that it got into you

but wait
like colors like paint
a trumpets been played, and i
hope that it's inside
hope that it got into you
and there's no doubt

here lies amelia bright
in a red 50's dress from a thrift shop nearby
i laid on my back and stared at the sky
with amelia bright

there's clothes that are put away
there's me, spread all over the floor
i'm lost in one place
i'm stuck and I'm straight
and i hope that you feel the same too
and there's no doubt

here lies amelia bright
in a red 50's dress from a thrift shop nearby
i laid on my back and stared at the sky
with amelia bright

there's no doubt
there's nothing to work out
you're alone, cause you're always on your own
but when you yawn
it makes me wanna yawn too

blank expressionless clue
what got into you, with a
necklace no shoes
a promise of truth
and a life to re-write and improve
and there's no doubt

here lies amelia bright
in a red 50's dress from a thrift shop nearby
i laid on my back and stared to the sky
with amelia bright
amelia bright
amelia bright

Firecracker People

there's no little bird to set free
or play a part in what's meant to be
i control what my heart thinks
or is it just like gunpowder

no one is listening
just taking what they're given
that will never be me

we're all firecracker people
going off all the time
the empire keeps pulling
beautiful spark out of time

look how the sun shines for me
i have a mind for industry
i need another with big dreams
louis vuitton and mercedes
an eye for the finer things

the city light keep pulling
i'm standing still and moving
and the tubes are glowing

we're all firecracker people
going off all the time
everywhere i go, you'll be
beautiful spark out of time

what does love have to offer me
i don't think i believe
could there be someone who'll inspire me
or is it just the dream i dream

who's gonna prove it different
when everyone's pretending
and the research is showing

we're all firecracker people
going off all the time
the empire keeps pulling
beautiful spark out of time

will you ever notice me
will my heart remain incomplete
you're the driftwood, i'm the sea
maybe in time you'll learn to see
oh, i believe

like a fuse burning slowly
you're miles away, i'm within reach
i am here patiently

we're all firecracker people
going off all the time
everywhere i go, you'll be
beautiful spark out of time

we're all firecracker people
every thought i'll ever know
you're the only thing that i see
beautiful spark out of time

Norina

Wedding Day

sitting by the window
watching the rain go
down
down

it doesn't really mean much
watching the rain rush
down
down

i'm sitting here with my coffee cup
you're waking up
on your wedding day

in the grey hazy morning
got up from yawning
under the window light
it doesn't really mean much
watching the rain rush
down
down

i'm sitting here with my coffee cup
you're waking up
on your wedding day

Chemical Clouds

chemical clouds rush
our shoes were wet, after the rain
wet street lights
it's in your goodbye
on the other end of the line
new electric sparks

you're standing clear in the midday sun
and your eyes have made the change
you're coming 'round the bend
you can be happy, you don't believe you've been

moods roll by like the wind
when you can't forget
it was 5 a.m. til you shook that bad dream

you're standing clear in the midday sun
and your eyes have made the change
you're coming 'round the bend
you can be happy, you don't believe you've been

like you were brass knuckles, you broke the night
fought to fasten, you broke the night
all the lights surround, you broke the night
like you were brass knuckles, you broke the night

you're standing clear in the midday sun
and your eyes have made the change
you're coming 'round the bend
you can be yourself, you don't believe you've been

chemical clouds rush
our shoes were wet
after the rain

Nobody Let You Down

moving the hair out of your eyes
telling me things i want to believe
there won't be anything to regret
keep searching, may you always stay free

you oughta know it now
nobody let you down
late night greyhound bus ride
don't lose your mind
cause there's no way things are gonna make sense in time

flock of cranes in the winter light
long time to go
before you decide, you'll let it show
mountain high on the low edge
waitin' on the hudson line
more than seasons changed

you oughta know it now
nobody let you down
you're a trendsetter, fuel for fire
don't lose your mind
cause there's no way things are gonna make sense in time

just echoes and sunlight on the floor
the future's just today and tomorrow
farther than where we started
getting closer since we parted

cold nights, this was your design
don't lose your mind
cause there's no way things are gonna make sense in time
there's no way things are gonna make
there's no way things are
there's no way things are gonna make sense in time

Your Choices

no one's gonna screw you around
spent years keeping part of yourself down
you come around, you sell it now
like it was always your intention

gas station lights and salty air
faded blue sky on the water
feel a slip in your chest
you just wanna understand

your choices got you going over
everything that you never did
get this one right, so get gone
to zero

see how you run
see how you run

now you're on the 101
driving through the hills that don't own you
you wanna stay far away
cause you don't know how to get closer

after image, the colors went
like headlights on a hotel wall
tears are running through your hands
you just want to understand

your choices got you going over
everything that you never did
get this one right, so get gone
to zero

see how you run
see how you run

you're still talking, she's already hung up
you don't let the real you out
plastic key ring for room 218
you're only waiting for a new start

roll the words in your hand
til the meaning shoots a shiver up your spine
no where that you'll ever go
will be far enough from where you were

your choices got you going over
everything that you never did
get this one right, so get gone
to zero

see how you run
see how you run
to zero

Run Away Happy

you and your beautiful life
making plans no one needs to know
your favorite line got lost today
turned off, antenna down
nowhere to go
you remember way back when
the reception is a private affair

run away happy
run away happy

reading between the lines
why should you why should you
count the days on your hand

the last page in your journal
who you were is a memory
see it in your eyes, i can see it in your eyes

run away happy
run away happy
run away happy

watching tourists walk in a maze
it's beautiful
you can hold your thoughts for ransom
like a birthday
and run away
run away
run away happy

late friday night, no appetite
off limits come to your senses
no one ever thought you would
no one ever thought you would

run away happy
run away happy
run away happy

You Come And I Go

i know you will
like everything else
it comes and goes
you're young, and
full of everything good
and i can't be wrong

you come and i go along

pink hair for a blue girl
anythings funny when you're alone
but hey we can leave and run out of money
it's cool let's go

you come and i go
you come and i go
you come and i go along

don't you want happiness
at least as much as anybody else

up on your toes
who was the fool that told you
i won't let go

A.M. Slow Golden Hit

soft rock on the radio
everything comes round again
needles and vinyl reunited
wanna make a collection of dreams i need to use
wanna make a connection like a bolt out of the blue

as the lemon light creeps in
like a thing you thought had gone away
like an a.m. slow golden hit

returning rocket man
old scenes are fresh and new
neon dancing in puddles as the morning turns light blue
walking on sunshine so many things to share
wasn't making sense
till it all comes clear

as the lemon light creeps in
like a song that you'd forgotten
like an a.m. slow golden hit

soft rock on the radio everything comes round again
wanna tell you i'm changing

as the lemon light creeps in
like a song that you'd forgotten
like an a.m. slow golden hit

a.m. slow golden hit
like an a.m. slow golden kiss

a.m. slow golden hit

Miles Behind Me

fading out of sight
into the back of your mind
all this water under the bridge
everything comes sneaking back
and we didn't talk after that

nobody saw you fall
miles behind me

things that we worried about then
when patience had run thin
laughed when we wanted to hide
on different sides of the line
we went to the end of the night

nobody saw you fall
miles behind me

familiar roads unrecognizable turns
seem to be dead ends
in tiny rooms out of view
everything's born again
and this time you're gonna win
at least that's what i tell myself

nobody saw you fall
nobody saw you fall
nobody saw you fall
miles behind me

nobody saw you fall
and i don't care it's all
miles behind me

I Am A Train

you left me on the line
like some holey shoes
tied at the laces

you've got your own mind
nobody can mend
and i am a train leaving

wake up and look around
we're nothing but skeletons walking around
don't act surprised you seemed so smart
yeah cause i've got it figured out

you got your hair pins
all under my skin
i was already at the station

you've got your own time
nobody can spend
and i am a train leaving

wake up and look around
we're nothing but skeletons walking 'round
don't act surprised you seemed so smart
cause i've got it figured out

it's alright it's alright it's alright
come on come on come on come on
this is fine this is fine this fine this is fine

you left me on the line
like some holey shoes
tied at the laces

i held you up
you tied me down
i am a train leaving

wake up and look around
we're nothing but skeletons walking around
don't act surprised you seemed so smart cause
i've got it figured out

i am a train
i am a train leaving

Small Town Shit

put your lips in a pucker
and keep them there
and keep talking
like the waitress down at the lantern
what's worse then your refusal
is my not wanting to

small town
small town
small town shit

post card charm
in a box in the attic
tell it all on the phone
like something new so unusual
what's worse than your refusal
is my not wanting to

small town
small town
small town shit

something 'bout the same old patterns
it's not lost on me

grave yard crosses
and four way stop signs
heads or tails you win
i don't remember who i am
what's worse than your refusal
is my not wanting to
i heard i was all wrong
it got back to me

small town
small town
small town shit

What You Meant

when there's nothing to say
nothing comes out right
like a dream when you wake up late

we can live on paper
we can live in a cell
if one day everything goes to hell

days go down
i'm tired of disco techs and fake rednecks
and now i know what you meant

if there's something missing
something you can't find
something goes faster inside

days go down
i'm tired of disco techs and fake rednecks
and now i know what you meant

so when you're down in the basement
when you're out in the sun
when you give up on yourself
you're done
and it's happiness for one, for one

days go down
i'm tired of disco techs and fake rednecks
and now i know what you meant
sucks your energy out

Follow Through

starting over again
you’ve made your mind up
let your hard luck end
and make it new
do it now girl

if you’re leaving then leave
if you need it then i want you to

let your thoughts come in
dedicated to you
stories i’ve heard
like a man on the moon
lessons i’ve learned

if you’re leaving then leave
if you need it then i want you to

there’s no use thinking
why these phases change you
you’re not waiting here for anyone
i’ll break down if you come around
when you need it
i want you to

take the past and cut it out
let the knife turn to rust
make something else up
there’s majesty in motion
you’ve made your mind up

if you’re leaving then leave
if you need it then i want you to
if you want it i want you to
if you’re leaving then leave
if you need it then i want you to

Stumblin' Home Winter Blues

goodbye street light goodnight
i'm sure that i'll be fine
cause daylight is breaking
and my head is spinning me
stumblin' home winter blues

sometimes i know i am wrong
and sometimes i know i am right
and lately i'm thinking
these streets are taking me
stumblin' home winter blues

out of line
incomplete
in between waking up
and going to sleep

out of line
wasting time
in between the morning light
and where i want to be

but it takes time
yours and mine

goodbye street light goodnight
i'm sure i'll be fine
i called from a pay phone
you were still sleeping
daylight is breaking
and my head is spinning me
stumblin' home winter blues
stumblin' home winter blues

Marvelous Truth

hey marvelous truth what you could do
you set a boy free you tortured a few
they marvel at you
and what you could do to be happy

cause everyone has a secret or two
and there's a new one about me and you
and there's nothing that you can do to take it back now

you read my palm while we were naked
said a man should know his limitations
ahh oooo the marvelous truth

back on your feet with another night through
and you can't believe the things that you'll do this time
your head, it is pounding

down on the street through the market
where cool kids buy rings and corduroy jeans
and there's nothing that you can do to take it back now

on your back are you dreaming
about a life that's full of meaning
ahh oooo the marvelous truth

we got along for an empty while
yeah you eased my mind
but i still belong to a girl back home
and she's on my mind
we still belong

slumber in june
up half past two
down on the street with my burden of truth
and there's nothing that i can do to take it back now

you read my palm while we were naked
said a man should know his limitations
ahh oooo the marvelous truth
the marvelous truth
the marvelous truth

The Mumbling Years

i was coming down
don't know what i mean
i was coming from left field
but you're a liar girl
you can see right through me
and i don't recognize my mouth

the mumbling years
the mumbling years

dream of sweetheart
electric at dawn
don't think you're coming 'round any more
turn into you
i'll turn back into me
false starts are all that keep coming out

and it's not ours to keep
so we wear it on our sleeve

the mumbling years
the mumbling years

like clothes you out grow
like water from snow
one more goodbye song

cause it's not ours to keep
so we wear it on our sleeve
it's not ours to keep

the mumbling years
the mumbling years
the mumbling years
the mumbling years

Anatole

what happened here
where did you go
are you hurt, are you stoned
what's gone wrong anatole
what's gone wrong

you're not in sync
you haven't been quite right all your life
and it shows when you smile, anatole
you never did say why

are you feeling sick
well you made yourself cause
you've been here before
you'll just head for the door anatole

what's been erased
has left you with no trace
no place, and you
you never could say goodbye

we never could figure out why
were you over it all or just too high
cause you never did say... hey

what's gone wrong anatole?

Motionless

took a plane to boston
and i hit the tarmac
thinking back on the days we had
picked up my bags
from the carousel
standing out in the freezing air

these days i'm here and i'm there
lay down and disappear
until the water goes motionless

lived in the moment
with a strange sense of humor
climbed in a taxi like a yellow raincoat
and when you're sailing
away from what you had
years may go flying past

these days i'm here and i'm there
lay down and disappear
until the water goes motionless

these days i'm here and i'm there
lay down and disappear

bought it from strangers
crawled down avenues
till there was nothing left to use
tried to find your number
to call you up
what you said went to my head
woke up something i thought was dead

these days i'm here and i'm there
lay down and disappear
until the water goes motionless
till the water goes motionless

Love To Try

you followed me 'round the side
i asked you for a light and a cigarette
when you've been up for days
you can't tell sunrise from sunset, yeah

i'm running my mouth again
on things i cannot explain
on things that can't be changed
you know i would love to try

kids are playing in the park
leaves are on the ground
you said you want to cry

someone hit a home run that we caught
on the other side, yeah

i'm running my mouth again
on things i cannot explain,
on things that can't be changed
you know i would love to try

ooooooh...

everyday i'll raise my glass
to all that's yet to come
let's make a toast

i fall in love everyday
what can i do
but i love you the most, yeah

i'm running my mouth again
on things i cannot explain
on things that can't be changed

you know i would love to try
