You can holler, you can wail
You can swing, you can flail
You can fuck like a broken sail
But I'll never give you up
If I ever give you up my heart will surely fail

And after all God can keep my soul
England have my bones
But don't ever give me up
I could never get back up when the future starts so slow

No longing for the moonlight
No longing for the sun
No longer will I curse the bad I've done
If there's a time when your feelings gone, I wanna feel it

You can holler, you can wail
You can blow what's left of my right mind
You can swing, you can flail
You can blow what's left of my right mind
(I don't mind)

There's a time for the second best
And there's a time when the feeling's gone
But it's hard to be hard I guess
When you're shaking like a dog

You can holler, you can wail
You can blow what's left of my right mind
You can swing, you can flail
You can blow what's left of my right mind

You can holler, you can wail
You can blow what's left of my right mind
You can swing, you can flail
You can blow what's left of my right mind
(I don't mind)

You can blow what's left of my right mind
You can blow what's left of my right mind
You can holler, you can wail
You can blow what's left of my right mind

Lost her behind the station
Lost her behind the moon
Operator, operator, dial her back
Operator put me through
Ahuuuh, Satellite gave up the ghost too soon
Rising on the thermals
She calling in and out the blue
Ahuuuh, carried her off on a silver spoon
I loved her too long, don't take her too
Oooohhh ohhhhhhh
Oh how he crossed us on that fate your path in my own satellite
What a mess a little time makes to us when time and place collide
Operator, operator, dial her back
Operator, operator, don't take her too.
I loved her too her long, don't love her too
Operator, operator, dial her back
Operator, operator, don't take her too
I love her too her long, don't love her too, don't love her too

. . .


Looking in the mirror
Looking back
A look of wild living
Bound to crack

The heart is a beating drum
The heart is a beating drum
It takes more than you wanted before
To keep it on

Howling at the future
Won't you be fast and full
All the noise and hot crossed fangs
You, you got in you

Send your love in a rampage
Give her everything you've got
And when you come to hate her
Show her more than just a spark

Cause the heart is a beating drum
The heart is a beating drum
It takes more than you wanted before
To keep it on, it's a beating

The heart is a beating drum
The heart is a beating drum
It takes more than you wanted before
To keep it on, it's a beating drum

And you feel like you been here
So many times before
It's not the door you're using
But the way you're walking through it

If you feel like you been here
So many times before
It's not the door you're using
But the way you're walking through it

Cause the heart is a beating drum
The heart is a beating drum
It takes more than you wanted before
To keep it on, it's a beating

The heart is a beating drum
The heart is a beating drum
It takes more than you wanted before
To keep it on

It takes more than you wanted before
To keep it on

I am no better at this than you are
Unfinished business maybe, do love
I can't change myself into you dear
What you are to me is far too unclear

Quit being a nail in my coffin and I don't need another one
Quit being a nail in my coffin and lord knows I ain't ready yet
Quit being a nail in my coffin and I don't need another one
Quit being a line I'm crossing and I am never gonna get back from

Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh

I am no better at this than you are
Loneliness never truly leaves me alone
I have made mistakes I can't take back home
I love you just not the way you want

Quit being a nail in my coffin and I don't need another one
Quit being a nail in my coffin and lord knows I ain't ready yet
Quit being a nail in my coffin and I don't need another one
Quit being a line I'm crossing and I am never gonna get back from

Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh

Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh

Quit being a nail in my coffin and I don't need another one
Quit being a nail in my coffin and lord knows I ain't ready yet
Quit being a nail in my coffin and I don't need another one
Quit being a line I'm crossing and I am never gonna get back from

Quit being a nail in my coffin and I don't need another one
Quit being a nail in my coffin and lord knows I ain't ready yet
Quit being a nail in my coffin and I don't need another one
Quit being a line I'm crossing and I am never gonna get back from

Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh

Wild Charms

[No lyrics]

. . .


When it came to pass
Lonely passed me by
Fate with a single blow
His custard pie, me now
True I had my chance
True true true I had those wild charms for you
And oh oh oh oh oh my fire burned them out

But we will not be moved by it
We will not be moved by it.

Your mind would never ache
When you were young and sound
The way your heart aches now
Your fevers send them all to round
Love love love till you've got enough
Dance dance dance if you've got no love around you
Love love love till you've got enough
Dance dance dance till there's no one left to hound you

We will not be moved by it
We will not be moved by it

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Love love love till you've got enough
Dance dance dance if you've got no love around you
Love love love till you've got enough
Dance dance dance till there's no one left to hound you

We will not be moved by it
We will not be moved by it
We will not be moved by it
We will not be moved by it

. . .


Baby says she's dying to meet you
Take you off and make your blood hum
And tremble like the fairground lights

Baby says if ever you see skin as fair
Or eyes as deep and as black as mine
I'll know you're lying

Baby says oh how love romance I'll get
From all your sleeping dogs you felt of God
I'll get one yet

Baby says for all I've forsaken
Make something of all the noise
And the mess you're making
And all the time's it's taken

Baby says there's death in these silver curls
That break up in jails
Send you diving for pearls
Without a care in the world

Baby says she's dying to meet you
Take you off and make your blood hum
And tremble like the crimball lights

Baby says oh how love romance I'll get
From all your sleeping dogs you felt of God
I'll get one yet

. . .


It's the last goodbye I swear
I can't rely on a dime a day love that don't go anywhere
I learn to cry for someone else
I can't get by on an odds and ends love that don't ever match up
I heard all you said and I took it to heart

I won't forget I swear
I have no regrets for the past is behind me
Tomorrow reminds me just where

Can't quite see the end
How can I rely on my heart if I break it with my own two hands?
I heard all you said and I love you to death
I heard all you said don't say anything

It's the last goodbye I swear
I can't survive on a half-hearted love that will never be whole

. . .


She damned if she do
She damned if she don't
If history hang hang hangs her well
Her memory won't

There's been a perception
Of sweet hearts passing through
Some of them left no trace at all
Some left her black and blue

She come alive when she dying
She come alive when she dying
She come alive when she on her last legs
She come alive when she dying
She come alive when she on her last legs

She damned if she will
She damned if she won't
Some of them left in one piece
And some she damn near broke

And I am no stranger to the strange all his ways
What could be stranger than to be stuck outside your cage

She come alive when she dying
She come alive when she dying
She come alive when she on her last legs
She come alive when she dying
She come alive when she on her deathbed
She come alive when she on her deathbed

She come alive when she dying
She come alive when she dying
She come alive when she on her last legs
She come alive when she dying
She come alive when she on her deathbed
She come alive when she on her deathbed

She come alive when she dying
She come alive when she dying
She come alive when she dying

. . .


You don't own the road boy
Better kick up a storm
You don't own the big city lights
Better cop out your own

You don't own the green pines,
The blue sky, or the smoke
You don't own the dust in your
Big brown eyes when you keep them closed

Yeah, steal them back for me love
Oh yeah, steal them back for me love, oh yeah

You don't own the road boy
And neither do I
You don't own the big city lights
That make my eyes cry

You don't own the green pines
So be careful where you lean
And when you're lost under the blue sky
Look down and you'll find me

Yeah, steal it back for me love
Oh yeah steal it back for me love, oh yeah

Come on over
If that's the way you feel
When you're lonesome steal it
Back when you're lonely
Back when you're lonely, back

You don't own the sadness son
See the tide just comes in
Guilt is played on the violin
By those who never cared to sing

Yeah, steal it back for me love
Oh yeah, steal it back for me love, back for me love
Oh yeah, steal it back for me love, back for me love
Oh yeah, steal it back for me love, back for me love
Back for me love
Back for me love

. . .


I can't find enough pots and pans
Let alone knives in my kitchen
To keep you cooking

I can't find enough love in my heart
Let alone in my bones
To keep you standing

Ain't enough salt in the ocean
That cares enough to keep you floating
There ain't a drop left in my tank
To move move move your dead weight

I ain't joking
You're so good
I ain't joking when I said
You're so good

I can't find enough pots and pans
Let alone knives in my kitchen
To keep you cooking
To keep you cooking

I can't find enough love in my heart
Let alone in my bones
To keep you standing

These are the days we'll never forget
When the dawn dawns on you
