Sell My Old Clothes, I'm Off to Heaven
There's a beautiful sky tonight and
If you were by my side then we could share it but your gone.
So come at me with your moon and burn me in the stars
Cause nothing matters anymore.
If I could only see you now for about an hour
Maybe just a minute
Just to ask
What has he got that I don't have?
Is it his brown eyes?
I know blue eyes get boring but I'll wear dark glasses all the time and
Hey if you want me to, I'll take a knife to my own bright eyes.
If I could only see you now for about an hour
Maybe just a minute
Just to ask
What has he got that I don't have?
Is it his brown eyes?
Well, I'll give you a thousand reasons that tonight you should grant me this one wish.
Like the one year of my life that I gave to you and
Now you put me through hell.
You break me up.
I should hate you, but I can't replace you in my heart.
Why am I so pathetic?
I don't get it why you won't return my calls.
Can't you look at me once?
And please if you got a minute,
Enjoy this lonely sky with me.
It'll swallow us whole if we only let it.
If I could only see you now for about an hour
Maybe just a minute
Just to ask
What has he got that I don't have?
Is it his brown eyes?
Well, I'll give a thousand reasons that tonight you should grant me this one wish.
Like the one year of my life that I gave to you and
Now you put me through hell.
You break me up.
If this sky's going to eat us then I'd like to be digested into a million pieces with you.
I'd love to be scattered to hell with you.
To hell with you.back to top
A Drag in D Flat
If every limb were broken,
Tires had all worn thin
And my toes are all in pieces.
Do you know
What I would do?
I would play can you drag yourself
200 miles
With just your fingernails?
A little game that I made up.
Do you know that I never ever lose?
There is nothing to
Keep me from coming back to you
Cause I can picture all the pictures of you
And me on your walls.
What would it take to make you mine forever?
Just your fingernails,
A little game that I made up.
Do you know, that I never ever lose?
Could I cut out my liver,
Make a special potion
To close my flat?
Three parts my heart.
Yeah, you know that I would do it in a second.
With just my fingernails,
A little game that I made up.
Do you know that I never ever lose?
With just my fingernails,
A little game that I made up.
Do you know that I never ever lose?
Never lose.back to top
I'm Sorry I'm Leaving
Your middle finger was clutching my thumb through the park and over macdougal.
The torches were blazing about our street and just down from the sky.
Casey stepped with anna off the curb.
His shoes are clogs, did you see?
They dipped in that puddle, the one catching green.
They were tripping up and slipping around, singing 'rolalita come out tonight' and oh I wanted to pull you down.
Roll on top of me, baby. just roll.
We'll wreck our clothes.
We'll scrape our knees.
We'll taste the scabs.
You, sweet, are worth these next four months until I bail out and kiss behind your ears, drive off in the van.
Oh my god, I think I'm dying in this car seat, where I'll spend through winter.back to top
Hold
Oh well, you've got me under your spell and I don't think that I'm kidding around.
I don't think I can forget you now. I once sat up on my roof and examined the planning of my town.
I saw the structured grid and pavement cutting through grass and I remembered the cold of winter running up the legs of my pants.
I picked the nicest lawn and imagined the two of us rolling around down along the ground.
I saw myself touch your face and I noticed jets begin to race above our heads.
But I pinched my arm and remembered how much you hate me.
I remembered the fact that I can't see what you need and I'm too stupid to be aware of the beauty that you give this place and how shitty this town would seem without you in it.
When you aren't around I let the shades fall down to shut out all the sun's light and make myself feel all right.
What am I doing with my life?
Remember that the only things we need sometimes are chilly nights and warmer thighs, 'cause there's nothing like being held.back to top
Jessie & My Whetstone
To me, the only thing left after a while was that night we watched documentaries up through morning and then you kicked me out.
You opened up your screen door and threw me off the porch.
It was summer then and I drove home whistling muddy waters down the pike.
And that was that: our one sweet night together.
Under highway signs I watched our love start fluttering and dissipating.
I counted all the headlights to make sure I was all right.
Now I'm wondering is it me or is it me that can't see silver linings?
So I fucked it up. I watched you go.
I saw my hand not dialing the phone.
All I'm left to do is remember the dull room we sat in blue stream light watching the strike of '59.
I dreamed of wrecking my underwear.
Oh can't I touch your cheeks somewhere under dirt filled rainy nights with my socks stuck in the mud?
Please come dive in puddles with me.back to top
Take Our Cars Now!
Don't you remember the last time we were speeding down this highway?
Anna slept in the back seat, dreaming in the autumn heat.
We turned up the country radio.
I said, if you want me just say so.
I slicked back my hair in the wind.
I told you I didn't want my picture taken but you snapped it anyway.
Now I guess you won't have trouble remembering me someday.
So I floored it and swerved around the lanes.
I kept wishing it were you instead of me behind the wheel so maybe with my camera I could steal a shot of you and go home to put it in my room.
Maybe you'll never remember me.
Maybe my face will lose these scars, 'cause sometimes they keep me home at night where I duck under the covers and wince when I see the light.back to top
The Way His Collar Falls
Leif and I are on the train to new york in car 1399.
There's a guy with a quarter in his ear and I've seen leif only once in the past two months.
His hair is sticking up a little in the front. he's losing it just a bit.
When I get home tonight I'll miss him in hampshire.
I'll miss his glasses and the way he writes in purple pen, the way his collar falls to the left.
Have you seen his ankles lately?
I know he's next to me.
I feel his sweater here, but when I'm sleeping it's only green sheets and the hair down my legs.
I think I'll write you, leif, when I'm near tuesday, sometime before you go and I'm back on the train.back to top
The Art of Misplacing Firearms
(I guess the only reality is the one you seem to believe in.
Well I'm walking out, this is the last time, I feel like shit.
This isn't the way to treat old friends...)
Let's go again
Set me up
Watch me stand on top of my old house
Watch me spinning and watch me seeing the melon sky
Oh, look it's so beautiful tonight
But I was feeling so sweet
I could barely breathe so deep
But you had to come along
You had to shatter everything
Why'd you even fuck her in the first place?
Friends don't mean a thing when you can actually feel the knife sticking in your spine
For a second there I thought I was fine
But oh, whatever
I've tasted my own blood, and now every time you walk on by, I feel like spitting in your eye
This is not the way I pictured getting hurt.back to top
East Coast
I remember the time
When everything was all different
We didn't really know each other then
I didn't know how much you made me so
I guess it was all pretend when
You decided you're those all are different things.
I don't think that it was all that bad.
Especially that time in princeton was nice.
Then we pretend to be so close
Now we wait
Try not to be not so different
Than we have in the past
You made me so but I don't know
To everything I'll hope again.
I never wanna be not so here (x5)
I never wanna be not so here again.back to top
1:19
It was almost night time so we stayed inside, and closed our eyes. I whispered a thought that I had. we slept while holding hands couldn't sleep the cold. you said, just being near you for
Le is enough. I thought you have the most wonderful sense of feeling right, and the most wonderful sense of being here tonight.back to top
An Afternoon Laughing
You aren't the kind of person that I couldn't fall in love with, rather you are the kind of person that I could. and I'd like to spend an afternoon of laughing at ourselves, and hear all the won
L things you might tell me. I'd watch your eyes gleam during that time of day when you can't really tell if it's day or night. I'd like to think of us in twelve years having a place and a daughter. I think she would look a lot like you. we'd be all the time smiling. someone once asked me who I'd most like to be with. I said, there's this really great gal that I'd like to hang out with sometime.back to top
Dave Feels Right
Playing shows and writing songs could've been much more than you can get out of sitting around and being unproductive. there's a lot more than being like the other kids. at least I have somethin
Do with myself. did you ever notice how sometimes you take for granted what you need, like having friends and good times and never losing touch? but I guess you found something else to hold on to, like a girl or money or being bitter to the end. I'd like to think of the days when we didn't have to, and everything that ever meant some to you? you only thought you had to circle so far, and then come back down to sacrifice this one last thing.back to top
When It Isn't Like It Should Be
Why is it everything's all loneliness with me? I guess sometimes I try
To hard, and sometimes you cause it, but it always carries on and on. what
Did you ever become? you asked. I said, I was told to be smiles and bright
Eyed happiness, but sometimes I can't find anything to laugh at. I don't
Want to be here. you said. it seems like I almost always have that effect
On everyone. I say to myself, you aren't the first one to think like me.
And I just want to be like everyone else. why can't I be everything to
Everyone else, or maybe just to you? just once I would like to be something.
And I wouldn't mind if you'd like to be with me.back to top
I Think I'll Quit
I think you're a really neat person
And I think I want to spend some more times with you
Cause you aren't boring and your phone skills are really rad
You call me up again
I think I really like you
You're in my thoughts all the time
I remember what you look like
I can picture us walking hand in hand and side by side
Then I look into your grey-blue eyes
I like you an awful lot.back to top
Clash City Rockers
I wanna move the town to the clash city rockers
Ou need a little jump of electrical shockers
You better leave town if you only wanna knock us
Nothing stands the pressure of the clash city rockers
You see the rate they come down the escalator
Now listen to the tube train accelerator
Then you realize that you got to have a purpose
Or this place is gonna knock you out sooner or later
So don't complain about your useless employment
Jack it in forever tonight
So shut your mouth
And pretend you enjoy it
Think of all the money you've got
An' I wanna liquefy everybody gone dry
Or plug into the aerials that poke up in the sky
Or burn down the suburbs with the half-closed eyes
You wont succeed unless you try
You owe me a move say the bells of st. groove
Come on and show me say the bells of old bowie
When I am fitter say the bells of gary glitter
No one but you and I say the bells of prince far-i
No one but you and I say the bells of prince far-i
Rock rock clash city rockers.back to top
