Love Baby Love

Well, she was just fourteen and he was thirteen and a half
She was the prettiest thing he had ever seen in his whole life
"Hey hello", he said, "my name is Josh and I love you"
She says, "well, that's too bad, you see
I don't date boys like you, you're just thirteen"
"And a half", he said trying to look mean

Oh, love baby love, it can tear you up
You can run away, but you can never get enough
Love baby love, baby love, baby love, baby love

He is thirthy-two, hasn't touched a woman in his life
He's got a brand new suit and tonight will be the night
Fifty bucks he saved last week, hidden in his socks
As he walks the streets until he finds a girl who looks just like Marie
Back in Omaha when he had the chance, but fell asleep

Oh, love baby love, well it can tear you up
You can run away, but you can never get enough
Love baby love, baby love, baby love, baby love

He is fourty-four, he's got a wife, three kids and a dog
A very, very, very fine house and some friends he kinda loves
Yesterday, he met this boy in the park
Guess he always knew, now he knows, not what to do

Oh, love baby love, well it can tear you up
You can run away, but you can never get enough
Love baby love, baby love, baby love, baby love
Baby love, baby love, baby love, baby love
Baby love, baby love, baby love, baby love


DON'T GO

You look in her eyes to see if there is something to hide
You're trying to find a reason, an answer, a lie
You hate to admit but you know that it's true
There is nothing to look for at all
She touches your hair like a mother would do
And picks up the phone to make a few calls so you

You ask her once more and she says it's been said and that's all
You stare at the floor, watching the curtain fall
She says it's not you and it's nothing you said
But that some things just seem to change
You look in her eyes and it scares you to death
To think that one day you might just feel the same
And that all this was just a mistake

Oh, please don't go, don't go, don't go, just go
Just go
Please don't go, don't go, don't go
Just go, just go
And close the door so the cat won't get out


INSIDE

I hadn't noticed the silence until I suddenly heard myself talking
And I quickly shut up, embaressed as I was about the fact that there was no one there
At the same time frightened their might be
Knowing perfectly well this would be virtually impossible
you see
No one ever gets in here, just as I never get out

It's better that way, it's better for anyone who's concerned
Every once in a while though I sneak out and
I walk to the other side of the street where I just stand for an hour or so
Watching the lights coming from my window
This reminds me of how lucky I am to have a home

I like to be inside, it's just gives you a better view of
people, things and stuff you know


MY GIRL

I like your blouse, you like my shoes, small talk fills the air
I try to find a dumb excuse, just to touch your hair
You tell me about your boyfriend and how he treats you really nice
But memories cover my ears and I don't hear a word you say
Has it really been a year, it seems like yesterday
And to me, you're still my girl, to me you're still my girl

What can we do, but laugh about the way things ended up
We sit and watch the sun go down, drink wine out off paper cups
And of course we both agree no matter what, we'll still be friends
But how come it feels really strange when you suddenly touch my hand

I watch our shadow slowly fade, don't want the day to end
To me, you're still my girl, to me you're still my girl

We're walking home, discussing life and all our new found friends
The future never seemed so bright and I want to but I can't
Stop thinking about the times when nothing mattered much at all
But it's getting late, it's getting cold and I let you have my coat
And hide around the corner, watch you walking down the road
There goes my girl, there goes my girl


FUN FUN FUN

Fun fun fun, fun fun, all that fun
And nothing much to do but watching you get undressed

Fun fun fun, fun fun, and the sun
is shining like it has for the past couple of months

Fun fun fun, fun fun, what has gone wrong
Don't know who is to blame, it's just a game, and I think we lost, and I think we lost


SO HAPPY

Well friday night and I am not so, so hard to find
Too much to drink and too much on my mind
Then you walk in with all your fancy friends
And I just can't stop staring, oh there is no harm ment
You walk up to the bar and you order some, some strange coloured drink
And I, I don't know where to look and I just don't know what to think
But I can see you now pouring the afternoon tea
With one in the oven and one on your knee
You know that

we could have been, we could have been, we could have been
So happy, so happy

Now you're stuck in your world and I'm, I'm pretty stuck in mine
And I don't think that one of us is gonna cross that line
So there'll be no wedding and you'll never be mine
And I'll just sit here staring at you until closing time
But you know that

We could have been, we could have been, we could have been
So happy, so happy


KING

I know you got your troubles, baby I got mine
Been making this clear oh so many times
And if I could believe all the things I said
I'd be my own best friend, king in my own head
King in my head, king in my head

I thought this would be easy thought of you all day
Thought of all the things that I would never say
Anyway, it's been the real first sunny day today

Hey, and isn't it funny how all the sounds comin' from the street suddenly seem to change
Any even the little voices in my head make it clear, it's been another year


LONG BLACK LEATHER COAT

She's got a nineteen year old smile and an eternal look in her eyes
That makes you wanna look away
Just to find you've come full circle and there's no escape
Happiness is wearing a long black leather coat these days
Just as our eyes meet some spirit of Christmas' past offers
Me a drink and a reminder of who I used to be
I'll have an oscar for the evening and a headache in the morning, when I leave her
With a lie on my lips, trying to find the one on my mind

And I lay my head to rest on a pillow, with your name
Happiness is wearing a long black leather coat these days

Now if this is all I ever wanted than I guess all is nothing, nothing is me
Dead end street and endless conversations and I'm falling asleep

And I lay my head to rest on a pillow, with your name
Happiness is wearing a long black leather coat these days


I WISH

Now I wish I had a tv-set built in my eyes
And everytime you would make me cry I'd know I could just watch another show

And I wish I had a cd-player in my ears
And I'd listen to the music I'd like to hear
And I'd go see every band with a remote control in my hand

And I wish birds were fish

And I wish I had a four-wheel drive in my heels
Everytime I would start to feel the tension grow
I could just get of the road
And I wish I had a central heating system in my head
And I wish I was someone's dead, at least I'd know
someone loved me a long time ago

And I wish birds were fish

And I wish I had you back in my life
But it would all turn into another lie
Baby I got news, baby I got loose

And I wish birds were fish
And I wish, a date with Lilian Gish


LOVE

I believe that it is a normal reaction for a man to love
This love can be given to a dog, a kitten, another man or female
I believe that it is a normal reaction for a man to love
I believe that it is a normal reaction for a man to love

The love that formerly dared not speak its name today will not shut up


IRON / CAN YOU HEAR IT

You know, I really love doing my dishes in the morning
When the sunlight reflects you're whole lifestory in the water
Then you drop a glass and you're whole life goes; splash, splash
Now Mr Bear and Mr Goose, and all you're little friends you use to see in the clouds
They all come down to say hello in the phoam
And if you listen well, this is what they shout

Do what you wanna do, say what you got to say
I think I close my ears for now you see, time passes slowly today
Can you hear it, can you see it
Yeah I can but I don't wanna know it
Can you hear it, can you see it
Yeah I can but I don't wanna show it
Can you hear it, can you see it
Yeah I can see it but I'm half blind

Now it's that time in the morning when you put on your first record
It's got to be something really smooth and easy going
Something by the Spoon, and it's me and you
And rain on the roof all over

Do what you wanna do, say what you got to say
I think I close my ears for now you see, time passes slowly today
Can you hear it, can you see it
Yeah I can but I don't wanna know it
Can you hear it, can you see it
Yeah I can but I don't wanna show it
Can you hear it, can you see it
Yeah I can see it but I'm half blind

(what a day for a daydream, what a day for a daydreaming boy)

Then you pick up the phone and you ask all your friends to come over
to your place, bring all their instruments and just jam a little

Do what you wanna do, say what you got to say
I think I close my ears for now you see, time passes slowly today
Can you hear it, can you see it
Yeah I can but I don't wanna know it
Can you hear it, can you see it
Yeah I can but I don't wanna show it
Can you hear it, can you see it
Yeah I can see it but I'm half blind


SANTA (PLEASE BRING ME A GUN)

My daddy is gone now, for 2 years or more
It's gonna be another 3 or 4
But mamma she tries to give me a good life
She brings home new daddy's every night

My brother Johnny, he is this real cool guy
Sits in his room and stares at the sky
He says he loves me, and something about a high
He says he's sorry, he sold my bike

Santa, they tell me life can be fun
Santa, oh Santa please bring me a gun

Well it's christmas eve and like every year
Uncle Joe droppes by, wearing a dirty white beard
He says he's Santa, I know it's not true
He does things to me, no Santa would do

Santa, they tell me life can be fun
Santa, oh Santa please bring me a gun


THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS

It was the night before christmas, and all we're drunk
Mark had just made some stupid remark about his wife's new dress, who had then left
leaving just John, Mark and me watching James Steward getting his life back
There supposed to be a real good party on tonight

Where ?

I don't know, it says on the flyer
So, where is the flyer

It's on the table

Nobody got up
I wouldn't mind getting my life back I thought
As I opened up a bottle of wine Mark opened his mouth,
but all I could here was this funny melody

He, you're gonna drink that all by yourself ?
I opened up the wine, and poured the glasses
So, we're gonna go?
Go where ?

To the party

So, who's playing ?
I don't know, it says on the flyer

I got up and I noticed it had started to snow
And there it was again, much clearer this time
I found out later it was probably just John's neighbour trying his new stereo
Still it was a good melody

We didn't made it to the party
