Track Name: Sweet Lazy Day
Sweet Lazy Day

Feels like I was all alone last night
But I was not
And what’s more revealing
Is you were here
Pointing at the paint pealing
Next time I wanna be alone I’ll just call you
But I do not
Still I get the feeling
I’m better off with a brush and a ceiling

OH SWEET LAZY DAY QUEEN
WAS IT ALL JUST A DREAM WITHIN A DREAM FEEDING COINS TO A BROKEN MACHINE?

I should be more clear
That’s what you always say
As if I was not
What I deal is too near me
It’s not real-estate
Or some unified theory
And speaking of beauty I hate symmetry
That was a joke
or more of a dig see
If you are gunna be lost
Better lost laughing with me

OH SWEET LAZY DAY QUEEN
WAS IT ALL JUST A DREAM WITHIN A DREAM
FEEDING COINS TO A BROKEN MACHINE?

Oh you’d paint the room blue
I know you don’t see it like I do
Oh you don’t have to stay
You are free to move on
What’s a promise these days?
What’s a promise these days?
We are all free to leave
‘Cause it’s a broken machine
It’s a broken machine

OH SWEET LAZY DAY QUEEN
WAS IT ALL JUST A DREAM WITHIN A DREAM FEEDING COINS TO A BROKEN MACHINE?
Track Name: Einstein's Wife
Einstein’s Wife

Mileva on her hands and knees
a home needs to be clean
one by one pick up the floor
put right, shelve, trash, fix, press, and steam

Bountiful bouncing thoughts and things
pulled out beaming and plummeting
through depths Of space between us now
expanding ‘till I’m not around

Bereft beauty don’t mourn the loss
accept and learn to love the cost
of genius in the living room
tend, nurture, cook, bemuse, and broom

Put your face on / let your hair long
Put your face on / let your hair long

Children need attending
theories need a sounding board
love and light are bending
and everything is moving toward

Bountiful bouncing thoughts and things
pulled out beaming and plummeting
through depths of space between us now
expanding ‘till I’m not around

Bereft beauty don’t mourn the loss
accept and learn to love the cost
of genius in the living room
tend, nurture, cook, bemuse, and broom

Put your face on / let your hair long
Put your face on /let your hair long

Bang! Bang!
Your kicking the door
I don’t need it like this
I don’t need You no more
why is your love so strange?
day time late night masquerade
Track Name: Falling In Love
Falling in Love

Falling in love
for the 1st time again
just like falling in love
and I want to if I can

I’m willing to do the time
if you are willing to do the time with me
you’re scared and so am I
‘cause love is such a mystery

And I think we can make it if we try
I, please try

Falling in love
for the 1st time again
seems like falling in love
feels like falling with no end

And I think we can make it if we try
I, please try

bop bop bop
bop bop bop
please try
Track Name: 1970
1970

Morning
I think I’m coming back
Yeah I cleaned up good
I’m getting how to act
I’ve got a fountain
And I’m bringing it to you
And you will drink from
The water that it spews

And you will laugh and I can sing again
And we can stare at the walls and make them bend
I drew a map of your skin in my head
I’m gunna find my way back to the end
Just to start again

IT’S RAINING OUT
YOUR PAINT IS RUNNING DOWN
CAN’T GET A LIGHT
SOME HOW I MISSED THIS TOWN
IT’S RAINING OUT
YOUR EYES ARE HOLDING ME
AND I STILL SMOKE
LIKE 1970

Day 2
I’m starting to unpack
You draw the water
I run my hand across your back
I’ve got a fountain
And I’m bringing it to you
And you can lay beneath
The water that it spews

You can learn to love me changed
I’m almost used to the way you’ve rearranged
I drew a map of your skin in my head
I’m gunna find my way back to the end
Just to start again

IT’S RAINING OUT
YOUR PAINT IS RUNNING DOWN
CAN’T GET A LIGHT
SOME HOW I MISSED THIS TOWN
IT’S RAINING OUT
YOUR EYES ARE HOLDING ME
AND I STILL SMOKE
LIKE 1970

Let’s lay our heads
I want our thoughts to dance in dream
On this wide bed
We’ll stretch a life out clean
Track Name: Long Old Time
Long Old Time

IT’S GUNNA BE A LONG OLD TIME
BEFORE I GET AWAY FROM HERE
IT’S GUNNA BE A LONG, LONG TIME
BEFORE I GO
THE HELL I’M IN’S A STATE OF MIND
YOU GOT ME SO I CAN’T UNWIND
IT’S GUNNA BE A LONG,
LONG TIME BEFORE I GO

‘Cause baby, I’ve been watching you
I maybe think you caught me too
I’m dig’n on those hips you flaunt
I’m dig’n on your neck
You whisper through the lips I want
With eyes that dance the lover’s taunt
Baby I’ve been watching you
I’m a swagger, I’m a wreck

IT’S GUNNA BE A LONG OLD TIME
BEFORE I GET AWAY FROM HERE
IT’S GUNNA BE A LONG, LONG TIME
BEFORE I GO
THE HELL I’M IN’S A STATE OF MIND
YOU GOT ME SO I CAN’T UNWIND
IT’S GUNNA BE A LONG, LONG TIME BEFORE I GO

I’m begging baby just one thing
If you could end my suffering
Come up so close next to me
And whisper in my ear
say, “Come on honey lose the lines”
or, “Baby you’ve been on my mind”
Then walk away, or spend the night
‘Cause I’m a swagger, I’m a wreck

IT’S GUNNA BE A LONG OLD TIME
BEFORE I GET AWAY FROM HERE
IT’S GUNNA BE A LONG, LONG TIME
BEFORE I GO
THE HELL I’M IN’S A STATE OF MIND
YOU GOT ME SO I CAN’T UNWIND
IT’S GUNNA BE A LONG, LONG TIME BEFORE I GO
Track Name: BQE to the LIE
BQE to the LIE

Frankly, we’re falling to pieces again
A lot like the last time
Where do we get the strength to keep kicking ourselves? It must be the cheap wine

I don’t know why we’re still thinking of words to put right
The wrong ones from last night
You’re great, we’re fine, we’ll save, you’re still mine
Yeah this time it’s your fight

THESE SHOES THEY MUST COME OFF
STAND STILL IN ONE LANE
ON THE BROOKLYN-QUEENS
EVERYBODY’S INSANE
I STILL DON’T HAVE A PHONE
YOU DON’T PICK- UP ANYWAY
I LOVE YOU LIKE THE 1st JUNE
MORE REAL BUT MOSTLY THE SAME

Old junk, calendar talk, the thrift-shop queen of the weekends
Still have that Brazilian-brass-lamp in a box
Beneath a box in the basement

I don’t know why we are still fixing to furnish an old house
That stands on a fake street
Chest of drawers, LPs, pump organ, love- seat
A collection is best incomplete

THESE SHOES THEY MUST COME OFF
STAND STILL IN ONE LANE
ON THE BROOKLYN-QUEENS
EVERYBODY’S INSANE
I STILL DON’T HAVE A PHONE
YOU DON’T PICK-UP ANYWAY
I LOVE YOU LIKE THE 1st JUNE
MORE REAL BUT MOSTLY THE SAME

We’re still having weddings
We’re still losing wars
We’re still writing pop songs
Still trekking to Lourdes

THESE SHOES THEY MUST COME OFF
STAND STILL IN ONE LANE
ON THE LIE
EVERYBODY’S INSANE
I STILL DON’T HAVE A PHONE
YOU DON’T PICK-UP ANYWAY
I LOVE YOU LIKE THE 1st JUNE
MORE REAL BUT MOSTLY THE SAME

Was it the kick or atrophy ?
And how long to stick around?
Did I choose you?
Did you choose me?
Eyes , or a scent, or entropy?
And when will it all come crashing down?
Not just us but everything like moon or mars
Light, light let’stake it slow
Get it right, right see how it goes

Just a peacock with no peahen

Track Name: In The Valley
IN THE VALLEY

I’m fumbling too through the valley
I’m fumbling through
It’s quite a view in the valley
And I’m following you
Clothes on my back need a mending
Clothes on my back
My soul is worn and offending
There’s holes in my slacks

WHAT BABE CAN I DO TO PUSH MY LOVE INTO YOU? WHAT BABE CAN I SAY TO MAKE THIS TRIP OK?

I’ve got 2 plums and a grapefruit
I’ve got 2 plums
Sharing grains and fruit in the valley
Like 2 hippie bums
Said there’s a shack in the country
Dreamt of a shack
Make wine, plant crops, and a plum tree
Living clothes on backs

WHAT BABE CAN I DO TO PUSH MY LOVE INTO YOU?
WHAT BABE CAN I SAY TO MAKE THIS TRIP OK?

I’m fumbling too through the valley
I’m fumbling through
It’s quite a view in the valley
And I’m following you
Track Name: Symptoms 6/8
Symptoms 6/8

6 sailor boys were crying for the good old days
5 dancing girls were dancing for fake gold
4 drinks were poured to drown the night in accolades
3 clocks were on the hr.
but the minutes were all questionable

2 TV sets shown a gentleman with a club in the sand
1 waitress on the phone said she was still in Rome
I was on the bar stool with 2 singles in my fist
& I can’t get home , I can’t get home, I can’t go home

A la la a la la
I can’t contain the allegation
A la la a la la
I can’t make do
A la la la la la
I love you with a reservation
A lala a la la
I don’t believe you

Tie the light and hang the curtain
Paint the walls in Monet gold
True to something, something certain,
Certain something’s never sold

Newborn blankets, English breakfast
Sunday sleep in, shut the phone
At the last light, driving straight,
but I can’t get home, I can’t get home, I can’t go home

A la la a la la
I can’t contain the allegation
A la la a la la
I can’t make do
A la la la la la
I love you with a reservation
A lala a la la
I don’t believe you

Alone, Alone, Alone

6 sailor boys were crying for the good old days
5 dancing girls were dancing for fake gold
4 drinks were poured to drown the night in accolades
3 clocks were on the hr.
but the minutes were all questionable
Track Name: Don't Turn Your Love (away baby)
Don’t turn my love (away baby)

Don’t turn my love away baby
‘cause it will never come back
no I’ll never turn back
don’t turn my love away baby
‘cause it will never come back
no I’ll never turn back

Why’d you pull that line?
why’d you say that thing?
yeah it’s a stupid lie
that I’m suffering
don’t you do me wrong
even one small slip
‘cause i’ll pull away
watch you lose your grip

Don’t turn my love away baby
‘cause it will never come back
no I’ll never turn back
don’t turn my love away baby
‘cause it will never come back
no I’ll never turn back

You know what I want
‘cause it’s never changed
too simple and pure
to ever rearrange
in your bed alone
when the night is deep
am I still the one
that steals away your sleep?

I need you, I want you
if you are real, if it’s true
Don’t you do me wrong
‘cause I’ll hock this ring
And I’ll leave you flat
sell off all your things

Don’t turn my love away baby
‘cause it will never come back
no I’ll never turn back
don’t turn my love away baby
‘cause it will never come back
no I’ll never turn back
Track Name: You're The Woman
You’re the Woman

You’re the woman I want (tonight)
You’re the woman I need (alright)
You’re the woman I want (oh)
The only woman for me

I don’t even know why
This here blue world is spinning
A tiny spinning rock in the great dark space
But I’ve got a few hundred
And a big old bed back at my place (that’s right)

You’re the woman I want (tonight)
You’re the woman I need (alright)
You’re the woman I want (oh)
The only woman for me

I try and try to stay this true
To love only one and forget the rest
You won’t wake up in my arms
I never sleep where I make my mess (oh no)

I’d buy you a shiny necklace
I’ll buy you some Italian shoes
I’ll help you pay your back taxes
Do what you want with what I give to you

You’re the woman I want (tonight)
You’re the woman I need (alright)
You’re the woman I want (oh)
The only woman for me

Ahh - Ooo

Baby, baby I’m the one for you
Baby, baby the only one for you
Baby, baby you are the only one
Track Name: When The World Is Under The Weather
When the World is Under the Weather

Todos son sagrados
Todos sienten dolor
Todos son un poco solos
Todos sienten un poco de horror
Un poco de horror

Don’t be thick
that’s the answer
Learn to bend and change shape
Try to play nice on the playground
And have another parade
Have another parade

No hay plan perfecto
No todas ideas son buenas
Hay pensamientos mejores
Hay pajaros que no vuelan
Hay pajaros que no vuelan

Everyone is sacred
Everyone feels blue
Sometimes it takes more than a mile to determine
Where your next step leads you

Was it all just a dream within a dream
Feeding coins to a broken machine?
