Every time I close my eyes
Awake, or in my dreams
You are on my mind
(It's all about you)

Everything that I dream
Every song that I sing
Keeps you close in mind
(It's all about you)

My heart and I will never be the same again
It's been so long since I have felt like a man

My heart and I will never be the same again
It's been so long since I've been who I am
(It's all about you)

Life is coming back into focus
A wave of emotion
I  haven't
really felt in a long, long time
(It's all about you)

It's all about you!

There was a goodbye
In your eyes
I failed to recognize
When I last saw you

When we parted
At the station
I thought the future
Gave us more tomorrows

Bridge:
Moments tend to come and go
Like grains of sand against the wind
Mine are memories of you
And me when I first called you friend

There was a loving
And a longing
I didn't have the courage then
To tell you

Past your eyes
There at the station
Was a broken heart
That went on beating

(Bridge)

Chorus:
I can see you wandering my mind
I feel yesterday go drifting by
I'm not afraid to say these things, but
Now you fly on angel wings

(Bridge)

(Chorus)

Well, the first time baby, I laid eyes on you
Oh, I knew just by my sigh that I was through
You wreck me, baby you know it
Direct me, baby you show it
Connect me, baby you feel like home

Well, every single time I look at you
Oh, I melt into those eyes of gray and blue
You slay me, down to the bone, babe
You sway me, rockin' me home, babe
Display me, baby you feel like home

Chorus:
Every time that we're together I, I never wanna leave
One thing you can tell yourself is that,
"He'll always boomerang back to me!"  Yeah!

You're the finest thing I've ever seen
Everything I say I truly mean
You send me, where am I going?
You mend me, all without knowing
You know me, baby you feel like home

(Chorus)

Now we have a language of our own
And I promise you, I'll never roam
You rock me, baby I love it
You shock me, nothing above it
I love you, baby I'm coming home

I wanna be the greatest of the ultimate sins
I wanna have a turn so I can finally win
I wanna hit a million bucks at work
Where the slot machine is busy just making jerks

Now I'm working on a bang bang bang
I'm working on a chain gang
I wonder who my friends are
I wonder if I'm ever gonna meet that star
Bang bang

Well I'm working on a bang bang bang
Trying to find somethin' to complain about
I'm dancin' in the evening rain
I'm held up by a midnight train
Bang bang

Dead president's corpse in a cyber car
Looking for a girl who'll really go far
Lights up my eyes like a city street
I'm looking for the one I'd like to meet

Well I'm working on a bang bang bang
Trying to find somethin' to complain about
I'm dancin' in the evening rain
I'm waitin' on a midnight train

I wanna be a giant man
I wanna lead someone to understand
Somewhere in the distance there's a great somewhere
And I'd be grateful to end up anywhere, anywhere, anywhere, anywhere

While I'm working on a bang bang
Ciao!

We are the bigger kids
Beware to little kids

*Spoken words*    
Good morning Mr Neal
What are you kids up to
Get to your class now

I close my eyes
I'm running and I can win
I'm hanging around with
My best friend
Then I take a turn around inside my Sit 'n' Spin

Just for your entertainment
Here we are... we're the bigger kids

We are the bigger kids
Beware to little kids
We are the bigger kids to them

Here we are... We're the bigger kids

*Spoken words*
Oh this is just repugnant
Oh brother, here it comes...

ROTC
Doesn't agree with me
Kinda preachy
Kinda cheeky
Kinda geeky

But you're my friend
So I won't turn away
YEAH!

In my office again
You little kid
Pay attention when I'm
Talking to you, mister!

I close my eyes
And die inside
I close my eyes
And I burn away...

*Spoken words*
Take one smoke bomb
     Ha, ha, ha
     Shhh...
One disposable lighter

     Ha, ha, ha

     This fool...
     Ha, ha, ha

     Shut up!
Place gently...
     RUN!

We rule the monkey bars
The bigger kids
Hands in the cookie jar
The bigger kids
We earn our golden stars
The bigger kids

We are
We are
We are the bigger kids...

Yes, I know you're all alone today
But Daddy doesn't have the time to play
Living life just kinda took the place
Of the way you comb your hair; your laughing face

And I can't reach you
And I might miss a step
When you say that it's over
The only thing I kept
Was your name cos I needed one

No, don't talk to me so bitterly of loyalty
And all the time you refuse to talk to me
Living life just kinda took your place
But you talk to me and torture me although you're years and miles away

And I can't reach you
And I might miss a step
When you say that it's over
The only thing I kept
Was your name cos I needed one

All is not forgiven,
I'm living my life, not forgiving

And I can't reach you
No, I can't teach you
I lock my feelings in a jar until they go away
I lock my feelings in a jar until another day

Won't you come and join us
For all tomorrow's parties
Step inside, find a seat
Won't you come and join us
For all tomorrow's parties
Step inside, drink's on me

"Blood and Luck"

© ℗ 2004 Poppermost (ASCAP)
Alex Oliver & Roy Rendahl
www.poppermost.com

Well it's dark and it's silent
Just an echo and faces down the hall
Against a windowsill, a photograph and memory

Of a proud and gallant girl
And a personality that should have ruled the world
And conquer any cause

It's just a picture framed within
A glass enclosed framework
Of what was love?
In any instance that we labeled love

Loneliness has become the lonely

Chorus:
Wash away yesterday
Just blow away what might remain
What fell apart
Who broke your heart
What killed it off doesn't matter in the scheme of things
It's just blood and luck

Well it's dark and it's quiet
Stories pass between these empty walls
Against the windowsill, I'm holding back a tear

For a proud and gallant girl
And a personality that should have ruled the world
And conquer any cause

It's just a picture framed within
A glass enclosed framework
Of what was love
In any instant that we labeled love

Loneliness has become the lonely

May God kiss you with a sunrise
Another red balloon for your eyes
May you never fall from grace
May you save yourself a better place

May they keep you in special care
May you learn the things not to wear
You can rocket through the sky
On the wings of butterfly

You are still their little one
Lil' trouble doll, you rascal - you got a head of stone
But will you still be "little one"
When you're all grown up and got a family of your own

Take good care of your mother
And the man who loves her
May you never fall from grace
On the wings of butterfly

You are still their "little one"
Lil' trouble doll, you rascal - you got a head of stone
But will you still be "little one"
When you're all grown up and got a family of your own

Take good care of your mother

I am just an employee
A paycheck monkey refugee
I punch the timecard when I leave
Some friends of mine were telling me

Yes your job is just a jail
No benefit, no call, no bail
Stuck inside the cell
Secured a place in hell

Chorus:
Do you really know what it's like?
Then you know
What it's like to be
A butterfly inside a jar
Inside a jar

Yes your mind can radiate
What you are and what you hate
And what you're choosin' not to see
Despite that's what'cha gonna be

Like a dog that cannot bite
Or like a moth around a porch light
Disconnected eyes
Disconnect my eyes

Middle 8:
Forty miles and breezy
Turns your view to hazy
Turns your view to crazy
Let me break my wings on broken glass

If I should fall behind
Don't tell a soul
I wasn't strong enough to go
If I should fall behind
Just let me fall
There's nothin' wrong, so

Chorus:
Catch me if I fall (x4)

I ain't waitin' for no revolution
Don't ask my advice; I ain't got no real solution
Don't try to guess my every move

Twinkle, Christine Purple Star
How does your day today so far?
Lend your lens and show me please
What you see by living every day
Catch the shots that take our breath away

Twinkle, twinkle purple star
How does your day today so far?
Lend your lens and show me please
Sleepy Hollow's ancient tapestries
Desolation at Sandy Hook Battery

Shine on, shine on purple star
How does your day today so far?
Lend your lens and show me please
Maple seed on nose of boy in flight
Eerie moons and fires in the sky

Burn and sparkle, purple star
A wall of cloud, above and far
Unaltered autumn sky
Night reflections of Tappan Zee Bridge
Wild ginger runs just up the ridge

(Repeat Verse 1)

Did you come here to talk about obligations?
I just came here seeking a lil' bit of conversation
Suddenly my thoughts get in the way
Neither of us know just what to say
Did you say, my friend
That romance was a dicey game?
It made a fool of you and left you
Walking 'round this town with a cane
Suddenly the topic seems to be
Blowing breezes where there ain't no trees
The search goes on and on
I gotta find somebody kind
To kill
To thrill
To find my sin-o-mine
Cinnamon Sunshine
The day is calling for you
Suddenly it seems to me
That living life was just a dream
So wake me when it's over and I'll ride my
Sin-o-mine

And if you're looking for a new direction
Baby, concentrate on me

And if you're ready for a new vibration
Baby, you're my cup of tea
You quench my fire like rain
And, sugar-mama, talk to me

I learned a long, long time ago
When I was young; another girl
But now I am more than willing to baby walk you home

Maybe we'll be married
And have ourselves a baby girl
Who wonders who's watching you
As you spin across this world?

A little bit of naughty conversation
Baby, "conversate" with me
And if you're looking for a new vibration
Baby, concentrate on me

Bridge:
Aggravation's not good enough for me
Infatuation's not where I need to be
You're out of time

Chorus:
How far can I see?
It all depends on whose shoulders are under me
How far down below
Is the hero dragged by the undertow?

I'm all alone
Shadows fall
You'll get no
Reply at all

I'm all give
You're all take
My decision
Mine to make

Shot glass of loneliness in my left hand
So I'll never sit inside "the circle"
Loving cups hold nothing I'll understand

Chorus:
Lovely, you're so lovely
I could say a thousand prayers just to drink from your cup
Only I'm so lonely
Turn the table, turn the tide
Turn my feelings upside down...

Love can be as trivial just like a matchbox
Left beside somebody's birthday cake
And love can pierce the soul just like an arrow
If it feels at odds with your mistakes

(Chorus)

I wonder if you ever see me
Or even if you're looking right through me
I wonder what's your biggest fear
I sometimes wonder what you're thinking
You can't be thinking what I'm thinking
I wonder if I should even stay here
Coz you hurt me...

Got a job that pays in coffee beans
She asks me how I really feel
I got caffeine 'til I get my fill, and...

She don't want to hurt no one
Before the dizzy day is done
She wants to shine on everyone
Before she's alone again (all alone again)

Erika's got what you need
All the boys that beg her, "pretty please"
She doesn't have a master plan
To win the heart of every man

Oh, my! Erika
So glad I met you

Erika, from what I've seen
She's a lifeboat and a beauty queen
And when she wants to have some fun
She'll pull the trigger of your gun, and...

You may be wild
But, baby, you're no child
Waiting on a crowd that tells you
"Bring me coffee, bring me tea"

You serve your company (just like me)

I don't stand a chance with relatives near
I sure could use some Christmas cheer

Underneath the family Christmas tree

Santa, if I could have your sleigh
I'd make my merry getaway
From the fruit cakes underneath the family Christmas tree

They're bringin' their kids? Oh boy, what fun
They're stayin' ten days, I thought it was one
I feel a migraine coming on

Underneath the family Christmas tree

Santa, when you read my tale
Just know I'm on my seventh ale
I'm on a sleigh ride straight from hell

Underneath the family Christmas tree

There goes my eggnog and noel...

Are you really as different as your old man seems to think?
Doing things that seem alien to him
but you don't even blink
Numbers come alive for you and guide your existence
Looking for the ones that can bring you to happiness

Round the kitchen counter, 5 a.m.
Welcome to your working week
Nicotine and caffeine binge and
Tired eyes that only see

It's the end of a work-a-day week; Farrah's due back home 'round ten
Pack of lights and coffee, then she's headed back again

Shootin' up my spine
I'm sitting on a fence
Cos it's my best defense

Well, it might be a "man and woman" thing
That keeps me sitting here
Screening every call
'Till evening starts to fall

I'd like to spend some time
With you sometime
If you're in the state-of-mind
What did you do to make me need to hear from you?
Call me and I'll revive that shine
To your tired eyes
Just keep me on your mind
Forever, Valentine

Well, you got me in your crosshairs
Bull's eye; you hit your target
For better or for worse
The longing starts to hurt

And I love you -- and I want you
Do you need me like I want you?

Twenty odd years of talking to myself
Finally someone answers back
Twenty odd years of looking in the mirror baby
Finally someone's looking back
Twenty odd years of idle conversations
That never make a sound
I'm ready to raise my spirit high
But be there, baby, when I come back down
When I come back down
When I come back down

I'd like to spend some time
With you sometime
If you're in the state-of-mind
What did you do to make me need to hear from you?
Call me and I'll revive that shine
To your tired eyes
Just keep me on your mind
Forever, Valentine

And I love you -- and I want you

Springtime 1991
Gabriella turns 21
Sprouted wings of youth
Ray-Ban shades and gypsy boots

Came from Northeast Angeltown
Ferried up to Puget Sound
Left the sad Seattle rain
To lie in Italian shade

Chorus:
There goes Sasparilla runnin' fancy free
The poster child for spontaneity

Glass of vino in the sun
She goes dancin' until the dawn
Then she's homeward bound
Back to downtown Angeltown

Hung with Krishna devotees
Biker friends who've been "Set Free"
She extends a friendly hand
While dancin' barefoot in the sand

(Chorus)

Bridge:
Senorita Gypsy Queen
Etched inside her memory

Art museums by the day
Art house movie matinée
See her smiling face
With rare and exotic grace

Jobs and classrooms came her way
Led up to her wedding day
Now she has a family
But still there is a memory

(Chorus x2)

I filed them inside of my brain
And keep all my thoughts out of view

Wishing, hoping for miracles that never come
Steadfast I will beat on my drum
As I say goodbye to you

Honesty falls through the back of the mind
Just like a memory stuck there in time
Why bother looking if you are too blind to see the real me

Questions, comments, insults -- I've had those today
Your words run amok and astray
As I say goodbye to you

Honesty falls through the back of the mind
Just like a memory stuck there in time
Why bother looking if you are too blind to see the real me

Questions, comments, insults -- I've had those today
I filed them inside of my brain
As I say goodbye to you

He’s not like other boys
From my side of town
He doesn’t come from money
So they put him down
With him I see my happy ever after
But only if I live inside my dream
 
Inside my lonely dream
Is only where it seems
I’ll get my happy ever after

I wake up early just
To catch a passing glance
No chance to talk to him
To flirt or spark romance
In him I see my happy ever after
But only cuz he’s always in my dreams
 
Inside my lonely dreams
Is only where it seems
I’ll get my happy ever after

With me he’ll get his happy ever after
But only cuz he’s living in my dream
 
Inside my lonely dreams
Is only where it seems
I’ll get my happy ever after

Deep in my lonely dreams
Is only where I seem
To get my happy ever after

Early morning job
And I don't want to go to work today
Like yesterday and the day before
And for it all

It was much too repetitious
I'm looking for a sweeter season
Living, laughing, loving always
While waiting for the rain

Up and down the boulevard
It never fails to bring me down
The sirens and the black and whites
And for it all

There's plastic people in the steeple
Looking for a sweeter season
Living, laughing, loving always
While waiting for the rain

Brand new horizons
And I start the day a different way
Unlike yesterday and the day before
And for it all

It was much too repetitious
I finally found my sweeter season
Living, laughing, loving always
Hey, here comes the rain!

Everybody's swimmin' in sunshine
I don't feel it
I don't need it
I don't care

Love has its moments
And I get the point
The point's a prickly pair
Of two

Chorus:
And you can keep the photograph of me
When I was younger and I laughed
I don't know what's in store for me
But as for now, I give you back your key

Woke up this morning
With a heartache made especially by two
Chip on my shoulder
Cup of coffee and some memories of you

(Chorus)

Woke up this morning
With a heartache made especially by you
Chip on my shoulder
Cup of coffee and some memories of you

Chorus:

You can be just anything you dream
And when you dream, please dream all the love there is
Coz there is enough in your dreams

Welcome, Isabella
To the world machinery
There's a time to take a stand, and
A time to let it be

Braces and glasses
And history classes
Passing notes to the girl sitting right beside you

Kickball and handball
And friends that are screwballs
Make up on your face with your mother's love to guide you

Love scars and first cars
Your first favorite rock star
Daddy wonders what the dream upon your wall is

And when you dream, please dream all the love there is
Coz there is enough in your dreams...

It was automatic systematic
Looking for a friend
The door flew open and you dragged me by the skin

It was automatic systematic
The way you brought me in
And I was fair game for your petty little sins

One more time to take off the edge
From anything they ever said to you
And once we crossed the line we fled
The thrills of dancing on the ledge

I will begin, my sister, I will begin
I will begin, young mister, I will begin

It was automatic systematic
Looking for a clue
Everybody wants to win, instead we're all set up to lose
Everybody wants someone
Everybody wants to settle down
Everybody's on the merry-go-round

One more time to take off the edge
From anything they ever said to you
And once we crossed the line we fled
The thrills of dancing on the ledge

I will begin, my sister, I will begin

Oh Kelly Green, I don't want to wait no more

Never get my hopes up

Count on how the angels sing; and
Hearts can sometimes take to wings

Reeling from years of hiding

Settle up, and bide your time; but don't
Tell me every story that you concoct for
Every friend to try and hurt them
Now they'll hurt you I'm ready to

Common sense or innocence
Which is safer ground?
That's what Liv says

And where to go from here?

Twenty years of pushing through
Another point of view
That's what Liv says

Listen and you'll hear

And how much different life would be
The bridges that might burn
Which path is the one to choose
There's no way to return

Grateful for the things she has
A midlife crisis now
That's what Liv says

There's no immunity

Head held high
Against the sky
Life is pop hi-fi
That's what Liv says

I share my empathy

And Liv says that she took for granted
Something that was lost
But something else is gained my friend
When the coin is tossed

That's what Liv says
That's what Liv says

Common sense or innocence
Which is safer ground?
That's what Liv says

And where to go from here?

Twenty years of pushing through

The bridges that might burn
Which path is the one to choose

Out of the door and into the cyclone
Of soccer mom duties, dresses, and proms
Remedy her a good cup of coffee
A Stephen King novel glued to her palm

Dances to music in Presley pajamas
While cleaning her office in predawn hours
Raised on Croce, and Diamond, and Denver
Sinatra and Satchmo passed down through the years

Bridge:
I am who I am, she says
This is her call to arms
She'll be there with you
To fight the good fight
To sound her own alarms

Back through the door and out of the cyclone
To Ezra, Diego, Noah, and Liz
Gather around all the friends and relations
For love and support, triumph and tears

Starts winding down as the sun's coming up
Before all the chaos becomes crystal clear
Just like a fine wine Michelle is a wonder
Goes straight to your head, she's a very good year

(Bridge)

Chorus:
You can see, she is free
She is anyone she wants to be
Comes to life when she's singing a song
Her name is Michelle
And she is wonderful
Wonderful...

(Little Mara)

I never really told you
You opened up my world and allowed me to see
A very different side of me
And everything I ever wanted to be

Everything that you said
Added sense to my head
In a nine o'clock classroom you taught me that
Everything has history
The 1960s are still a mystery

I'll put my heart out on the table
Talk to Momma B
I'll tell the truth now, coz I'm able
Talk to Momma B

I wonder if I've told you
When I left your side, I never felt so alone
I didn't like the world that much
I grew up and you made sure that we stayed in touch

You were privy to this...
My first love and first kiss
My first job and first car
All the music and opening night at the Whiskey
The way you cheered did really save me

I'll put my heart out on the table
Talk to Momma B
I'll tell the truth now, coz I'm able
Talk to Momma B

I'll lay my cards out on the table
Talk to Momma B
I'll shoot it straight now, coz I'm able

The trembling of a hand
The slightest gestures known to man
Is part of my condition, and

The glow inside my bulb's too bright
So I tried shutting off the light
The best inventions known to man
And I burn myself again, but

Chorus:
It's not the color of your hair
Or all my favorite t-shirts that you wear
It's all in how you came right back
To check on my condition

It's not enough to save your soul
So save your dimes for growing old
When every wind is chilling cold
It's part of my condition, and

I am the colour of the day
Silly boy blue in shades of grey
Things very seldom go my way
And I burn myself again, but

Just from me to you
Come alone, or come with me
And we'll add whip cream
To what lies beyond the big red bow (let it snow!)

We can shake packages
All through the night, you know
Or I could just show you
What lies beyond the bow

Sweeter than candy
Stiff as a Jack and Coke
A solid foundation
But smooth as a kitten's coat

You've been a naughty one

My understanding is very crystal
I can see your mind is mournful and confused
And everything, at least to my understanding
Has been punched up red and black and blue

I figured everything that I read in the papers
Past from mouth to headlines was the vicious truth
And everything that I pick up off my TV screen
Is punched up red and black and blue

Punched up red and black and blue... listen to me

Listen to me, mister

I see another body starving in the street today
It's them, tomorrow maybe me or you
Are you prepared to ask a stranger for a favor
When you're punched up red and black and blue?

My understanding is very crystal
I can see just why we're weary and confused
And yesterday could set up all of your tomorrows
When you're punched up red and black and blue

Punched up red and black and blue... listen to me

Hey, lets jump off at the same time, she said
Don't look down just take my hand
I don't know if I could do that, I said
Do you know where you might land on your command?

(Chorus)

STOP! the world I wanna get off, she said
Stop it your damn self, I'm goin' home
Maybe I could liberate you
Radiate and confiscate you
But my peace of mind is not your sanctuary

(Chorus)

She let go (x3)

I can draw from happiness
Anything my mind can guess
And look into her autumn eyes
With lines and curves that tantalize

Chorus:
And I can bend and shape her any way I wanted to
And I can make her so even she can look like you
And I love my... stickfigure girlfriend

Circles form her eyes and head
And bubbles wrap the things she says
And I can make her look at me
Or run to me and stand beside me

(Chorus x2)

Middle 8:
Hey, stickfigure! You're just imagination to me
You're no good for the boy!
Hey, stickfigure! You're just an apparition to me
Just one of my toys

(Chorus x2)

And her eyes are deepest blue
Prettier than any ocean I once knew
And her eyes are deepest green
Prettier than any ocean I've ever seen

Stickfigure!

Float like a swan...

Don't you wish that you could float like a swan
Underneath the golden rays of the sun?
An ugly duckling, don't you wish you could be
A beautiful thing that everyone wants to see?

Chorus:
It will be your day to come undone
And walk the shoreline to a brighter sun
We could all be like the chosen ones
And float like a swan

Don't you wish that you could sail like a swan
Treading water in the face of the dawn?
Brilliant and broken; don't you wish you could be
Nevermore, and further more, there's nothing to see

(Chorus)

Is your reflection just reflections
Of the way that you'd like to be?
Or is it just another picture
Of the damaged goods you see?

Sofia Marie
She is the love of their life
Up in the morning and in the window
Waving down the friendly passersby

Pointing at the birds
That hang like kites up in the open sky
Waving at the friendly passersby... blip!

Choo-choo-choo baby
Go go Canoga
Don't get icky with the one, two, three

Sofia Marie
She finds it necessary
To scale the cat and dog
And "Tom and Jerry" the canary
All you can really do is keep her safe inside

Pointing at the birds
That hang like kites up in the open sky
Waving at the friendly passersby... blip!

Life is just so fine on the solid side of the line... blip!

Sofia Marie
She is the love of their life
Up in the morning and in the window
Waving down the friendly passersby

Pointing at the birds
That hang like kites up in the open sky
Waving at the friendly passersby... zoot!

Sweet Sofia Marie... Dah-dah-dah-dah
Sweet Sofia Marie... Dah-dah-dah-dah
Sweet Sofia Marie... Dah-dah-dah-dah
Sweet Sofia Marie... Dah-dah-dah-dah

Pointing at the birds
That hang like kites up in the open sky
Waving at the friendly passersby... blip!

Dah dah dah dah dah dah dah...

Good times and bad times
Are only reserved for the best of friends
She taught me to laugh at myself
How to grow through the pain

And surely she gestures
The Jester of Jokes, The Queen of Puns
She stops to smell the rose-es
While slow dancing in the rain

Chorus:
You inspire me
Jackie
When I have some news to share
Then there's Jackie

Bridge:
I always see her face
Lit up with joy
She fills up every void in the room
Till the bitter end
You make the perfect friend
Here's to every moment
I spend with you, hey Jackie!

(Instrumental)

(Chorus)

(Bridge)

Good times and bad times
Are only reserved for the best of friends
Never give up on yourself
Coz that's all that you get

Not many speak up or stand up
To take pride in who they are
But she always finds the best
Of everything so we're all set

(Chorus)

I heard you were coming this time tomorrow
Last time I saw you, you were a raging ball of sorrow
You cried because no one could hear you
You never noticed no one wanted to

A pocket full of sympathy is all I have for you
And now you're coming unprepared, I don't know what to do
I anticipate that you are not the same old one
Who got loaded like a pistol, and fired at the sun

Chorus:
You compromise and compromise
And I can see it in your eyes
You want to fight the enemy
Oh who... might that be?

And when we enter this room, this time tomorrow
The room is filled with secrets only you and I know
You played "little girl lost" in the great big city
Desperate for someone who might show you some pity

A pocket full of sympathy is all I have for you
And now you're coming unprepared, I don't know what to do
I anticipate that you are not the same old one
Who got loaded like a pistol, and fired at the sun

(Chorus)

The sun might shine, I might go blind; it happens everyday
Would my heart come in 2nd place if you were here today?
I anticipate that you are not the same old one
Who got loaded like a pistol, and fired at the sun

(Chorus)

This time tomorrow...

Tracy... out the corner of my eye
Tracy... Lennon shades and ruby sky

But I have to disagree
When you tell me you are "too naive"
But I do appreciate
All the things that make me wait for ...

Tracy... from another point of view
Tracy... go from green to gray and back to blue

And I wouldn't disagree
If you stayed and kept me company
Then I could demonstrate
All the things I stay up late for...

Tracy...
Tracy...

Tracy... from the corner of my eye
Tracy... smiling as the world goes by

But I have to disagree
When you tell me you are "too naive"
But I do appreciate
All the things that make me wait for...

TTYL, MILF, LOL, and LMFAO

What R U talkin' about?
What did you say to me?
Spit out the words in your mouth

You're uttering nonsense
And you're talkin' your trash
Will you speak normal
If I gave you some cash?

Why U have 2 text like that?
What R U talkin' about?
Next you're gonna learn to scat
What R U talkin' about?

MYOB, BYOB, BFF, and WTF

What R U talkin' about?
What did you say to me?
All of your thoughts have gone south

You're making me anxious
And I'm feeling so dumb
Is anyone wonderin' why
My brain is so numb (TKO)

Why U have to text like that?
What R U talkin' about
You're thinkin' you're a real cool cat
What R U talkin' about?

Bridge:
I'm discombobulated
And feelin' so out-dated
Texting's overrated
And nothing's stipulated
But this is simply stated
What R U talkin' about?

It's a mis-contusion
That's causing my confusion
Not my imagination
I'm feeling deep frustration
What an abomination!
What R U talkin' about?

KISS, KMIA, FYI, and BTHOM

Beats the hell out of me!
One day I'll figure out
What UR sayin' to me

And in the meantime
I will still be confused
As I'm reading this
I'm singin' the blues

Who's to say it's win or lose?
What are you talkin' about?
I already blew a fuse!
What R U talkin' about?

(Bridge)

I walked into
Such a sacred room
A wooden cross there
And a stained glass view

And I saw crystal chandeliers
And saw those things so crystal clear
The beads and rosaries still sound the same
They rattle like a ball & chain -- ball & chain

I walked into
Such a blissful room
Among the people
With their lotus views

Many sacred beads
They spread into infinity
The chanting rang around my hollow head
Until my insides bled -- 'till they bled

Chorus:
(and) Everything pretty much looks the same
Where the guilty prayed
For a moment, I was Mary Magdalene
Standing at the altar
Where the guilty prayed

I walked into
His pearly white decay
He asked me for submission
And suggested that I pray

I asked him for a "pretty please"
With sugar if I'm on my knees
To say that I'd behave and I would stay
Where the guilty prayed -- where they prayed

(Chorus)

I walked into
Such a blissful room
Among the people
And their dirty view

And I saw crystal chandeliers
And saw myself so crystal clear
The beads and rosaries still sound the same
Where the guilty prayed -- where they prayed

Down by the sea
Johnny broke a bottle
And he blamed it on me

Chorus:
I had to move
Back to Whiskey Flat (Whiskey Flat)
Just to show you where my mind is at
I'm gonna take the road that leads me back
To Whiskey Flat

Hey, hey get out of my way
Just got back from the USA

Me and Ms Sassafras was messin' 'round upstairs
Landlady said, "Don't want no menfolk up there"

If you wanna dance with me
Then dance with me
And never ask me why
If you wanna help me girl
Then shelter me, shelter me
Against the falling sky

No one, nothing is what it seems
But we all have this special need

Yeah, time will tell
Inside your heart is a wishing well

If you wanna play with me girl
Then stay with me, stay with me
And help me mend my wound
If you want to give to me
Then live with me, live with me
And walk the dark side of the moon

No one, nothing is what it seems, what it seems
But we all have this special need

Yeah, time will tell
Inside your heart is a wishing well

I'll never see another day like this one
It could have been coincidence
I'll never see another night like this one
Ordinary, no
But the sky is blue, and now I'm blue
Coz I'm growing up, growing old, growing into you
I'm growing into you

If you've got a song to sing
That I've never heard
I've never heard another voice like you
And if you want to dance with me girl
Then dance with me, dance with me
I don't mind, I never could

No one, nothing is what it seems, what it seems
But we all have this special need

Yeah, time will tell
Inside your heart is a wishing well
Is a wishing well
Is a wishing well

Three coins inside a wishing well

You were there to pick me up when I fell
Tried to teach us right
You'd scold us when we done wrong
But held us tight when we were scared.

Bridge:
I left on a plane, came back on a bus
Couldn't wait to pack up that suitcase again
Call home crying, don't know what to do
And you always say, "It's okay, come home, I love you."

Chorus:
You'll always have a room upstairs
You'll always have a room upstairs

You are the rock foundation our family was built upon
You lead with your mind and guide us with your heart
Your strength carries us through any storm
You're always there, lighthouse beacon drawing us home,

(Bridge)

(Chorus)

(Bridge)

(Chorus)

"Stay strong," you told me.  "Be true to yourself.
When you're dancing with crazy, don't forget who you are."
"I've taught you all I can," he said.  "It's up to you how bright you shine."
Then you kissed my forehead and said goodbye.

(Bridge)

(Chorus)
