True

blue… like your eyes you left me blue
like my heart you left me blue
on the night you told me
you could never love me

you said you could never let me through
to you that was true

true… I could hold a torch for you
though you’d never love me true
I could rush to meet you
every single morning

I can’t believe you never knew
a true act of gentleness
a true act of tenderness
true…


Cars and Parties

everywhere I go reminds me
of someplace down in Texas
and every time I close my eyes
I dream of my old home

and oh it’s gettin’ so cold ’round here
there’s too many cars ’round here
and though I want to open up my heart
there’s too many parties

…everyone I know reminds me
of someone down in Texas
and every strip mall on the highway
reminds me of my home

and oh I’m tired of roamin’ round
there’s too many goin’ down
and though I want to open up my heart
there’s too many parties

every time I close my eyes
I dream of someone in Texas
and every strip mall along the highway
reminds me of my home

and oh it’s gettin’ so cold ’round here
there’s too many cars ’round here
and though I want to open up my heart
there’s too many parties

and oh it’s always so cold ’round here
there’s too many cars ’round here
and though I want to open up my heart
there’s too many parties

there’s too many cars ’round here…
there’s too many cars ’round here…
there’s too many cars ’round here…
and too many parties…
and too many parties…
and too many parties…


Who

don’t encourage me
I’ll do anything
I want to be loving
who I want to be loving

I can’t wait to see
circumstances changing over
for the chosen few
I want to be loving
who I want to be loving

I’ll say anything
it’s almost impossible
to a stranger
I want to be loving
who I want to be loving
who I want to be loving
who I want to be loving


Wonder Wonder

I don’t know what to do about you
I don’t know what to do about you
I learned a lot of rules from the Bible baby
but I wonder wonder what I should do
I wonder wonder what I should do

I don’t know why I’m stayin’ with you
if everything they’re sayin’ is true
I heard about you lyin’ to your mama, baby
and I wonder wonder what I should do
I wonder wonder what I should do

words don’t hardly even matter
when nothin’ seems to satisfy your mind
trust is ready to find
do you think you can make it to tomorrow

when everything you’re sayin’ is true
then I’ll know what to do about you
as always my wanderin’ mind
takes me right down
to the bottom of the basement

when everything you’re sayin’ is true
then I’ll know what to do about you
whenever you decide what you’re wantin’ baby
then I wonder wonder what I should do
I wonder wonder what I should do

plans don’t hardly even matter
when everybody’s messin’ with your mind
love is ready to find
do you think you can make it to tomorrow

when everything you’re sayin’ is true
then I’ll know what to do about you
as always my wanderin’ mind
takes me right down
to the bottom of the basement
I’m wanderin’, I’m a wanderin’ child
goin’ right down
to the bottom of the basement


Hear My Heart

one to one on
lines you’re writing out
that’s the way you
know me anyhow
but the lines stretch out
to where you are now

can you hear my heart
can you understand
are these letters only
falling from my hand
can our hearts decode
all the text implies
can I look into your
hardened old eyes

set the cards up
watch the dominos fall
you don’t even
know me hardly at all
and the chances are
incredibly small

can you hear my heart
can you understand
are these letters only
falling from my hand
can our hearts decode
all the text implies
can I look into your
hardened old eyes

can you hear my heart
can you hear my heart
can you hear my heart
can you hear my heart


The Fear

don’t get yourself hit by the fear
don’t set yourself up for the fear
fear is an opening
causes an actual tear

don’t buy yourself into the fear
don’t let yourself fall for the fear
love is the spectacles
turning the murkiness clear

fear is a rock in your stomach
fear is a weight in your heart
fear is unorganized
love is the old engineer

fear it perpetuates heartache
and love is the only relief
love is the carpenter
love is the old engineer

don’t sell yourself out to the fear
don’t get yourself next to the fear
fear is an obstacle
love is the old engineer
love is the old engineer
love is the old engineer


Dreamers

now that we’ve
started to find our calling
in the half-light
we close our eyes

letting everything slide
daylight’s much too golden
let me melt into your starry eyes
we’re both lonely little dreamers
we could hold each other for tonight

so close your eyes…
close your eyes…
let me take it back to the top

we could pass
beautiful moments entwined
in the half-light
we close our eyes

take it down again
I’ll show you through the mirror
let me melt into your starry eyes
we’re just lonely little dreamers
we could hold each other for tonight

so close your eyes…
close your eyes
close your eyes


Further

don’t blow out the candle little girl
keep a little flicker glowin’
don’t give up the passion little girl
don’t you ever let it die down
I know how you need his touch
I know how you miss him so much
there’s something that
should be saved and locked away

further down the ladder
my brave fireman reaches out
he’s gonna drop me down and leave me
further behind

don’t pull up the garden little girl
keep a little flower growin’
don’t you let the passion die down
someday might come back around
I know it’s an awful wait
I know it may not be repaid
there’s something that
should be saved and locked away

further down the ladder
my brave fireman reaches out
he’s gonna drop me down and leave me
further behind

further down the ladder
my brave fireman reaches out
he’s gonna drop me down and leave me
further behind


Merry Go Round

I went out to walk
at the end of the night
away from the people
and out of their sight
went out to the water
and out in the air
I wanted to see you
imagined you there
…we go round
merry go round
merry go round
merry go round

I wanted to see you
imagined you there
with that look in your eyes
and the wind in your hair
away from the others
and out in the air
I wanted to see you
imagined you there
…we go round and around
merry go round and around
merry go round
and the damn thing never stops

merry go round
merry go round
merry go round
merry go round

I waited for you
as the moon looked on
and the wind cried its heart out
on finding you gone
just wandering aimlessly
knowing not where
and foolishly hoping
you’d follow me there
…we go round and around
merry go round and around
merry go round
and the damn thing never stops

merry go round and around
merry go round and around
merry go round
and the damn thing never stops


Easy To Love

you’re so easy to love
you’re so easy to love
you make it hard for me
to carry through
with all the little things
that I should do ’cause

you’re so easy to love
you’re just an angel from above
you’re just the lover
that I’ve always dreamed of
it seems you’re very easy to love

you’re so easy to love
you’re just an angel from above
you’re just the lover
that I’ve always dreamed of
it seems you’re very easy to love…
it seems you’re very easy to love…
it seems you’re very easy to love…


Honey Please

honey please don’t believe
I’d ever say goodbye
to you, to you
honey please don’t believe
I’d ever make you cry
or break your precious heart in two

’cause I’m not the kind of girl
who’d ever take your love for granted
or run around with somebody new
and I’m not the kind of girl
who’d ever wanna go and leave you
as long as you’re feelin’ the way that I do
then I promise I’ll always be true

’cause you’re not the kind of man
who’d ever take my love for granted
or run around like your old love did you
and I’m not the kind of girl
who’d ever wanna go and leave you
as long as you’re feelin’ the way that I do
then I promise I’ll always be true


You’re Decided

off to New York
either that or
maybe Philadelphia tonight
I know it isn’t right
that I’d miss you
so what
maybe I’m unhappy

and it’s hard
maybe impossible
as long as you’re decided
I can’t stay mad at you
as long as there’s a sparkle of light
in the ancient heavens
I will always love you like this

off to Detroit
or was it New York
might as well be anywhere tonight
get you an emotion detector
check for signs of life

but it’s hard
close to impossible
as long as you’re decided
I can’t stay mad at you
as long as there’s a sparkle of light
in the ancient heavens
I will always love you like this
in the ancient heavens…
I will always love you like this…
