Be the light from my window
Be the time at my table
Be my hangover girl
Be my hangover girl
Be my hangover girl
Be my hangover girl

Share the wine at my table
Out of my mind see me stable
Find the time in my cradle
Be my hell of a girl
See my hell of a girl
Be my hell of a girl
See my hell of a girl
She waters down the rain when I get home

Be my hangover girl
See my hangover girl
Be my hangover girl
See my hangover girl
She waters down the rain when I get home

It's gonna rain when I get home
It's gonna rain when I get home
It's gonna rain when I get home

. . .



Keep on kicking shit, keep running off the rails
Keep on picking the dirt from 'neath your fingernails
'Cause I'm not worried about your state of mind
'Cause you're not the revolutionary kind

Keep on in the jungle with your techno-cality
Keep on lapping up your chemical duty-free
'Cause I'm not worried about your state of mind
'Cause you're not the revolutionary kind

Keep on twisting turning, staring down the sun
Keep on dancing dancing, dance with everyone
You're not the revolutionary kind
You're not the revolutionary kind
You're not the revolutionary kind

. . .



So you don't care about the beautiful people
But you'll try one just the same
Yeah I know you can love it or leave it
You're just playing a game...
Again

Oh you don't care about the famously stupid
But you'll live it for a while
Oh I know you're only doing that irony thing
When you smile but don't smile...

You don't care about what anyone else is
Don't care what they do or they say
You live your own life in your own time
And in your own dead indifferent way

Yeah... in your own time...

No you don't care about the fabulous in things
But you'll be one just in case
Yeah I know you can take it or leave it
You're just having a taste...

Don't give a fuck about what anyone else is
Don't give a fuck what they do or they say
Yeah you are as you feel in your own time
And in your own dead indifferent way
And you will swear on any life but your own
That you're happy! happy how it all is...
At least it's the way that you think I should think
That you think about any of this

About any of this... yeah... and it's so much more than you ever need...

And you will swear on any lie but your own
That you're happy! happy how it all is...
At least it's the way that you think I should think
That you think about any of this...

You're so... happy yeah!
You're so... happy yeah!
You're so... happy yeah!
You're so... happy yeah!


. . .



I don't think I ever know if I ever really want it
Could be why I'm never sure if I ever really got it
And I guess it's maybe easier not to think too much about it...

A house a car a family and friends
Yeah all it means to justify the ends

But sometimes... I wonder... in the back of my mind
Sometimes... I wonder... if I'm wasting all my time
Sometimes... I wonder... if I'm putting off my real life...

What I could've done, where I could've been
When I should've gone, why I should've seen
Who I would've loved, how I would've dreamed
And if it's always always too late...

I don't think I ever know that I ever really need it
Could be why I'm never sure that I ever really feel it
And I think it's maybe easier to guess I really mean it...

A house! a car! a family and friends!
Yeah all it means to justify the ends

But sometimes... I wonder...

A girl! a smile! a holiday and sex!
Yeah all it takes to make sense of the rest

But sometimes... I wonder... in the back of my mind
Sometimes... I wonder... if I'm killing all my time
Sometimes... I wonder... if I'm giving up my real life...

What I could've done, where I could've been
When I should've gone, why I should've seen
Who I would've loved, how I would've dreamed
And if it's always, always too late...

And every day that I let slide
Is one day more I never try
To break the world
To make my fate
And with every day that I let go
It's one day less I ever know
If it's always

Goodbye Lauren Lee, my precious Lauren Lee has gone
Gone so far away now, won't be back today or tomorrow
Goodbye Lauren Lee, my precious Lauren Lee has gone out

But is he away with the fairies, is he away with me?
Take him away, it's free, I play anywhere I choose
Did he get into the sequel, how is Leno these days?
Take it away, 'cause I don't care whether we win or lose
Yeah, whether we win or lose

All my chips are down, my precious chips are almost gone
Find a better caller, dealer man without a son
Put it all on one, I feel like number one is on now

But is he away with the fairies, is he away with me?
Take him away, it's free, I play anywhere I choose
Did he get into the sequel, how is Leno these days?
Take it away, 'cause I don't care whether we win or lose
Yeah, whether we win or lose

Goodbye Lauren Lee, my precious Lauren Lee has gone out

Yeah, whether we win or lose, whether we win or lose
Yeah, whether we win or lose

But is he away with the fairies, is he away with me?
Take him away, it's free, I play anywhere I choose
Did he get into the sequel, how is Leno these days?
Take it away, 'cause I don't care whether we win or lose

. . .



We came, we came, we came again
To stem the tide and point the blame
Came back from more
Came back to see what you had in store
Everyone join the line, everyone
Yeah

So you wanna spin the world around?
So you wanna spin the world around?
And anybody else, cut 'em down

So you wanna make catastrophe?
Won't you send it right over to me
I got some time
Everybody running high

The same, the same, the same again
To steal the time and haunt the graves
Just because it's there
Don't mean you see it anywhere
Maybe it's a trick of the light
Maybe, yeah

So you wanna spin the world around?
So you wanna spin the world around?
And anybody else, cut 'em down

So you wanna make catastrophe?
Don't you send it right over to me
I got some time
Everybody come alive

Yeah
So you wanna spin the world around?
So you wanna spin the world around?
And anybody else, cut 'em down

So you wanna make catastrophe?
Don't you send it right over to me
I got some time
Everybody running high

So you wanna spin the world around?
So you wanna spin the world around?
And anybody else, cut 'em down

So you say we haven't turned around?
So you say we haven't turned around?
Just everybody else is going wrong

. . .



Spit out the shout of a warning
Death is an honor with doubts
So you live in the end
And you mistrust the start
Because you don't think it counts

But you'll pay for yourself
You'll pay for yourself

You're just a heroin face

You see a heroin face in the mirror
And someone is clutching your breath
And you believe in the needle of night
You're only doing your best

But you'll pay for yourself
You'll pay for yourself

You believe in the needle of night
And someone is clutching your breath
So you mistrust the start
By always running away
But you'll never come back

You're just a heroin face

. . .





You can write your tunes with rhythm and blues as your alibi
You can sell your soul and lay the blame on the passers-by
You shake your body on the TV screen
It seems to me, you'd try anything twice
And swing it out and use it as your aphrodisiac
You can give it to me, to me
Plain to see that I'll give it you back
You let it flow, let it go, there's nothing to it
Anyone can try anything twice, try anything twice

Chasing after stories that have already been told
Cannot look old Son House in the eyes
I know where you carry such a fragile load
But I've got yours, and you've got mine
It's a rhythm and blues alibi



La la la la la la la la la la laaa..
You can take a trip through your juke joint smoke-filled paradise
You can give it your all, 'cause you are walking a fine, fine line, la
You shake your booty on the TV screen
Seems to me, you'd try anything twice
You'd try anything twice
Well let me hear you now..

Chasing after stories that have already been told,
Couldn't I look old sunhouse in the eyes,
I know where you carry such a fragile load,
And I've got yours, you've got mine
It's a rhythm and blues alibi
La la la la la etc.

Rosalita's crawling round the knees
Rest my head, she's calling to me
In my dreams she's there for me
But open my eyes to see you there
I am falling

Sweetness, since you left me
It's been your flag I'm flying
But I'm sick of crying
Why did you choose to deceive me?
Was your plan just to kiss, fuck and leave me?
So, considerately, just please talk to me
I won't portray myself so pitifully
My little conceit, you see
Is that I will never need you more than now

Rosalita's walking out on me
Close the door, she's stalling, I see
She's so sweet, but not for me
But as we sit around and laugh about
She's trying to call me

Darling, though you hurt me
It's not from my lack of trying
You've got a fear of flying high
You have lost your patience
I see myself sink in your estimations
Forget the salutations
Just please study these tears
Your bitter words they just confirm my fears
Gonna let it fuck up all the years
Yet I will not need you more than now

Beautiful bitch, I could consider this a simple glitch
You're just a hopeless stitch in time
But then for your crimes
Please find yourself a little guilty with these lines
Got your conscience on my mind
Because I could not need you more
Oh, I could not need you more
Yeah, I could not need you more than now

. . .



California got her right
You will have to wait
Calling from the Golden Gate

Sentimental sparrows
Keeping me awake
Funny how the morning's late
Funny how the morning's late

Come around with your heavenly smile
Come around and drag me out again
After a while we can sit and watch them all rush by
Come around and drag me out again
Come around and drag me out again

Always wanted to leave
Always felt that I'd get stopped
But I could never see myself
In anybody else's arms
In anybody else's arms

Come around with your heavenly smile
Come around and drag me out again
After a while we can sit and watch them all rush by
Come around and drag me out again
Come around and drag me out again

Always wanted to leave
Always felt that I'd get stopped
But I could never see myself
No I could never see myself
With anybody else

If you want a piece of my life
Get in line, baby get in line
If you wanna kiss then do it fast
Get in line, baby get in line
If you wanna practice, spill the past
Get in line, baby get in line
Get in line, baby get in line

California's angel
It's more than I can stand
Calling down the sunset's pain
Sentimental star unsolved
As soon as we wake
Funny in the morning state
Funny in this morning state

If you want a piece of my life
Get in line, baby get in line
If you wanna kiss then do it fast
Get in line, baby get in line
If you wanna practice, spill the past
Get in line, baby get in line
I will smile and chuckle till the last
Get in line, baby get in line
Get in line, baby get in line
Get in line, baby get in line

. . .



Guess it's bye-bye, baby bye-bye
Guess it's bye-bye, baby bye-bye

If you will, devil may ride
Invitation makes you feel fly
If you will, devil may ride
Well, the invitation makes you feel fly
If you will, devil will ride
Well, the invitation makes you feel fly
Did you ever even try
When the inspiration's set to run dry?

Well, everybody wants a good time
Yeah, and everybody wants a good time
It's a goodbye

World going mad out there
Throw away all of your treasured possessions
'Cause even the Royal Mail
Can't deliver us from what we've got into
Guess it's bye-bye, baby bye-bye
Guess it's bye-bye, baby bye-bye
You know it

Oh, so good I could just live for this lie
Oh, 'cause everybody wants to get by

It's too easy to like this living
Been taking it easy again
It's too easy to like this living

If you will, the devil will ride
But the invitation makes you feel fly
Did you ever even try
When the inspiration's set to run dry?
Did you ever even writhe
When the conversation turned to a guy?

And everybody wants a good time
Yeah, and everybody wants a good time
It's a goodbye

World going mad out there
Throw away all of your treasured possessions
Not even the Royal Mail
Can deliver us from what we've got into
Guess it's bye-bye, baby bye-bye
Guess it's bye-bye, baby bye-bye

Devil will ride
If you will, devil will ride
If you will, devil will ride
If you will, devil will ride
