You're so in love little girl
So much in love little girl
Running around in circles, why?
You know it's a crime

No less no more than a rose
No less no more than a rose
Try to attach a meaning
To words that you've heard

Stumbling through the dark
Seems I'm stumbling through the dark
Eveybody's stumbling through the dark

The men who proceeded us here
Left only questions and fears
The vanity formed by beauty lies
You know it's a crime

Stumbling through the dark
Seems I'm stumbling through the dark
Everybody's stumbling through the dark

Well, they stood prepared as you took the chair.
There was no need to satisfy you
I'll be damned though I held your hand
they felt the need to crucify you

You're goin' down baby baby
You're goin' down baby baby

You're in a tailspin, running out of your head
You're in a tailspin, running out of your head

You're a fragile flower in its finale hour
With no chance to taste the waters.
Judge declared "You'll get 15 yrs,
Join the lonely sons and daughters"

You're going down baby baby
You're going down baby baby

You're in a tailspin, running out of your head
You're in a tailspin, running out of your head

Smoke and mirrors couldn't hide your tears
Your eyes only betray you
Long trip, you lost your grip.
We've all been praying for you

You're going down baby baby
You're going down baby baby

You're in a tailspin, running out of your head
You're in a tailspin, running out of your head
You're in a tailspin, running out of your head
You're in a tailspin, running out of your head

As I lay upon my bed, I begin dreaming
Of how it's gonna be the day that I am free
Once I settle like the dust upon the table
But then you came along
You helped me write this song

I don't know what day it is,
I can't recall the seasons
And I don't remember how we got this far
All I know is I'm loving you for all the right reasons
In my sky you'll always be my morning star

Like a tired bird flying high across the ocean
I was outside looking in
You made me live again
From the mountains to the prairies little babies
Figures fill their heads
Visions bathed in red

I don't know what day it is,
I can't recall the seasons
And I don't remember how we got this far
All I know is I'm loving you for all the right reasons
In my sky you'll always be my morning star

From the train in Manchester, England
Lightning fills the sky
As I watched you wave goodbye
From the mountains to the prairie little babies
Figures fill their heads
Visions bathed in red

I don't know what day it is,
I can't recall the seasons
And I don't remember how we got this far
All I know is I'm loving you for all the right reasons
In my sky you'll always be my morning star

Pretty little hairdo don't do what it used to
Can't disguise the living
All the miles that you've been through

Looking like a train wreck
Wearing too much makeup
The burden that you carry
Is more than one soul could ever bear

Don't look so sad, Marina
There's another part to play
Don't look so sad, Marina
Save it for a rainy day
Save it for a rainy day
Save it for a rainy day

You neve make your mind up
Like driving with your eyes shut
Rough around the edges
Won't someone come and take you home

Waiting for a breakthrough
What will you set your mind to?
We stood outside the Chinese restaurant
in the rain

Don't look so sad, Marina
There's another part to play
Don't look so sad, Marina
Save it for a rainy day
Save it for a rainy day
Save it for a rainy day

Warwick Hotel
I know it well
We lived a dream so sweet, so sweet

I see Philly in the snowy gloom
We could have laid there 'til afternoon
Our cut runs deep, so deep, so deep

And the eyes of Sarahjane
I see the happy times again
And in the eyes of Sarahjane
I see the happy times again

We couldn't sleep
Laugh 'til we weep
Then time stood still, so still, so still

Talked for hours in our bed
I fell in love with every word you said
It felt so great, so great, so great

And in the eyes of Sarahjane
I see the happy times again
And in the eyes of Sarahjane
I see the happy times again

People love to fall in
Love they love to fall in
People love to be amused
But you won't see me laughing
In the sadness of our ways

Those were the days
Those were the days

And in the eyes of Sarahjane
I see the happy times again
And in the eyes of Sarahjane
I see the happy times again


. . .



Just another Saturday
Time, she keeps slipping away
Just leaving me behind

Sun is peeking through my windowpane
These eyes, they only see rain
I can't believe that she's gone

I don't expect you to see
But she's important to me, babe
I guess it's just one man's problem

I heard that she went out to celebrate
Three cheers for her brilliant escape
From the prison we were in

Cars buzzing, people rushing everywhere
I've got my world, I guess they've got theirs
Guess it's time for moving on

I don't expect you to see
But she's important to me, babe
I guess it's just one man's problem

There's a sliver of a moon above our heads
Laughing at the little cares that follow us to bed

Meanwhile her bullets keep flying
I heard every word that she said
And they echo 'round my brain

I don't expect you to see
But she's important to me, babe
I guess it's just one man's problem


. . .



They say you gave him up for dead
Now there's a stranger in your head
Yellow roses at your feet
Disappear in a memory of a dream
And like a flower in the Spring
Left to the mercy of the seasons
Soon the past will catch you up
Stinging like a paper cut
There's only so much in your veins to bleed

Don't let the world get in your way
Make your mistakes
Go on your way

Yellow roses at your feet disappear into a dream
Fingers clench and smell of magazines
Kneeling at the altar in a church
Praying desperately
That someone up there is listening

Don't let the world get in your way
Make your mistakes
Go on your way


. . .



My harp is tuned to the mourning wind
My flute to the voice that weeps within
And I taught the widows' hearts to sing
You're such a nasty little girl

If you wanna taste the water
Gotta come to the river
If you wanna taste the water
Gotta drown, drown, drown

Turned back, had a fall from grace
Now we find each other face to face
The wells you drank from all ran dry
Now you are standing all alone

If you wanna taste the water
Gotta come to the river
If you wanna taste the water
Gotta come to the river

I hope this letter finds you well
You're such a nasty little girl

If you wanna taste the water
Gotta come to the river
If you wanna taste the water
Gotta come to the river

My harp is tuned to the mourning wind
My flute to the voice that weeps within

If you wanna taste the water
Gotta come to the river
If you wanna taste the water
Gotta come to the river
If you wanna taste the water
Gotta come to the river
If you wanna taste the water
Gotta drown, drown, drown


. . .



Here comes the weather
It's looking like another storm
If all desire
Would leave this tired boy alone

Hopes haunt me like ghosts
They point their fingers
Grass grows in the cracks
Wind makes me shiver

Angelyne, forgive me
We threw it all away
You could never stand living with a man
Who could only lead you half way to love

I tried to fake it
But you wouldn't play along
I watched you naked
Innocent and holding on

Snowflakes make your bones ache in the winter
Your face will not fade, it will just linger

Angelyne, forgive me
We threw it all away
You could never stand living with a man
Who could only lead you half way
Angelyne, forgive me
We threw it all away
I could never fit into your plans
I'm nobody's man

Don't you tell me how to live my life
Don't you tell me how to live my life

Angelyne, forgive me
We threw it all away
You could never stand living with a man
Who could only lead you half way
Angelyne, forgive me
We threw it all away
I could never fit into your plans
I'm nobody's man


. . .



Rage on, rage on my brother
Time to lay down my arms
You know that it's wrong for me to go on
There's a madman singing down in the alley

My love waits at the window
My love waits by the door
The curtains are drawn
Who'll sound the alarm?
It's the madman singing down in the alley

I'll abandon the train
From the crowd watch the parade
Of the madmen singing down in the alley

Darling, take off your makeup
Gently let down your hair
We'll stand by the grave
And sip our champagne
Toast the madman singing down in the alley
Toast the madman singing down in the alley


. . .



You're lonesome in the morning
In the morning where you lay
Toss your head against the window
Beads form like crooked trains

You look so young
Have you ever been afraid?
You look so young
And I'm feeling so ashamed

Selfish thoughts and selfish reasons
Lead to my own demise
Once this world is taken from me
Stripped bare my soul will rise

You look so young
Have you ever been afraid?
You look so young
And I'm feeling so ashamed

When will you ever learn?
When will you ever learn?

I see familiar faces
Been down this road before
Like a steer, we're led to slaughter
Why fight what's carved in stone

You look so young
Have you ever been afraid?
You look so young
And I'm feeling so ashamed
You look so young
Have you ever been afraid?
You look so young
And I'm feeling so ashamed


. . .



Thinking it over
There's a card game in the back seat
They're throwing dice in the aisle
And the driver just smiles
With every mile he's closer to the arms
Of the woman who loves him
Tampa to Tulsa, one layover

Please don't ask, take my love and make it last
Please don't ask, ease my worried mind
And take my hand

Picking up nothing but stock quotes
On a GI's radio
It's giving me nothing but false hope
I'm putting it all on the line
Tampa to Tulsa, one layover

Please don't ask, take my love and make it last
Please don't ask, ease my worried mind
And take my hand

I know that you're running
But you don't know what from
Tampa to Tulsa, one layover

Please don't ask, take my love and make it last
Please don't ask, ease my worried mind
And take my hand


. . .



We were so close together
Yeah, you felt like a brother to me
Searching for a little bit of truth
But I found that it was living inside of you

Thought we could live forever
But there's more to life than we'll ever know
Tell me why'd you have to leave so soon
When I've got a thousand questions to ask of you

Will I see you in heaven
Shine your light from above
With your love I am never alone
Won't you carry me, won't you carry me home

Well, faith is the answer
Can you spare some to help guide me through
Swim across the ocean for a sign
Though you're gone,
You're always gong to be a friend of mine

Will I see you in heaven
Shine your light from above
With your love I am never alone
Won't you carry me, won't you carry me

Will I see you in heaven
Will I see you in heaven
With your light I am never alone
Won't you carry me, won't you carry me home


. . .



You're so in love little girl
So much in love little girl
Running around in circles, why?
You know it's a crime

No less no more than a rose
No less no more than a rose
Try to attach a meaning
To words that you've heard

Stumbling through the dark
Seems I'm stumbling through the dark
Eveybody's stumbling through the dark

The men who proceeded us here
Left only questions and fears
The vanity formed by beauty lies
You know it's a crime

Stumbling through the dark
Seems I'm stumbling through the dark
Everybody's stumbling through the dark
