F.N.T.
Fascinating new thing
You delight me
And I know you're speaking of me

Fascinating new thing
Get beside me
I want you to love me

I'm surprised that you've never been told before
That you're lovely and you're perfect
And that somebody wants you

Fascinating new thing
The scene makin'
Want a temporary savior

Fascinating new thing
Don't betray them
By becoming familiar

I'm surprised that you've never been told before
That you're lovely and you're perfect
And that somebody wants you

I'm surprised that you've never been told before
That you're priceless and you're precious
Even when you are not newback to top
If I Run
Morning comes and morning goes
Now it's me against the sun
The day goes by and darkness grows
And it's over before it's done

Well I know it'll be alright if I just get on the road
If I run I can free my worried mind
Yeah I know on the day I die I will lose my heavy load
But I wouldn't want to leave you behind

All my time keeps creeping on
Now I've grown into a man
But mr child still wants to run
From the cradle to the van

Keep thinking it'll be alright if I just get on the road
If I run I can free my worried mind
Keep thinking of the day I die when I lose my heavy load
But I wouldn't want to leave you behindback to top
Delicious
You're delicious
When you call me
I've got nothing left to wait for

You're delicious
When you see me
I've got nothing left to pray for

Hoo hoo yeahyeahyeahyeahyeahyeah yeah
Hoo hoo yeahyeahyeahyeahyeahyeah yeah

You're delicious
Come and feed me
I've got nothing left to cry for

You're delicious
Oh you sweet thing
You've got something I should open wide for

Hoo hoo yeahyeahyeahyeahyeahyeah yeah
Hoo hoo yeahyeahyeahyeahyeahyeah yeah

I would give my one last chance to you
Never to waste it
I would give my one last kiss to you
If you told me that you wanted to taste it

You're delicious
When you call me
I've got nothing left to sigh for

You're delicious
When you save me
I've got nothing left to die forback to top
Down in Flames
It's not the pain I'm used to it
I'ts feeling like I'm already dead
I see from the ceiling a misty spirit
Rising from a place in my head
And I never even get to go down
Down in flames

I said friend you have a life to see
Why do you scare me so
All the suffering's a mystery to me
I can't even pretend to know
So you'll never even get to go down
Down in flames

We had plans to explore the stars
Be rejected by stage door guards
Mining for gold as the time unreels
Not stifling behind suburban wheels
Not stifling behind suburban wheels

The plan was too burn up when the air was clear
We'd all wear our visors down
An arcwelder spark in the atmosphere
Not this man sized hole in the ground

Now your father's face is frozen between anger and tears
Your mother's hair's amazingly gray
And I'm seeing these friends for the first time in years
It's icicle reunion day

And you never even got to go down
Down in flames
You never even got to go down
Down in flamesback to top
Across the Great Divide
Over mountains
That's where my love lives
A long, long ride to sunland
Here where I did this

Across the great divide
Alone (wondering open afraid and)
Arriving alive
Unknown (unknown unwise and unaided)

If I could I might
Send my love on a plane ride
A black cross high in a blue sky
A green cross gliding on a million pines

Across the great divide
Alone wondering open afraid and,
Arrive in a life
Unknown (unknown unwise and unaided)

Across the great divide
Alone (wondering open afraid and)
Try to find a life
Unknown (unknown unwise and unaided).back to top
Temptation
I went to see temptation yesterday
In a fourplex on the old high drive
Cause something in my life was runaway
Or maybe to prove that I am still alive

Temptation lives alone and she works all day
So I waited after five on her front porch
She arrived parked her car and she walked my way
She smiled to see me standing at her door

Tell me now how pleasure can be a sin
She turned the key in the lock and let me in

Ah temptation showed me what I shouldn't do
Ah temptation showed me what I shouldn't do

Somewhere in the world tonight
Two lovers are treating each other right
Somewhere else in a lonely town
One lover waits an endless hour

Driving home in the dark I say this time will be the last
I know what I should never do
At least I'll keep temptations photograph
Maybe hang onto her phone number too

Tell me now how pleasure can be a sin
Well I don't plan to tell anyone where I've been

Ah temptation showed me what I shouldn't do
Ah temptation showed me what I shouldn't doback to top
The Prize
The night of a thousand verses
One thousand friends said have you heard
What we expected

We are all working late and
Waiting to win a prize we don't deserve
And live to collect it

Can't you see I'm weary
Maybe this news can wait

The night of a thousand verses
One thousand strivers strain to hear
A voice that's left us

And the magazines still have to sell us
Twelve mastergeniuses a year
It's all so shameless

Can't you see I'm weary
Maybe this news can wait

Can't you see I'm blurry
Maybe this news can wait

Maybe there was a message in it
I don't know where you hid it
Maybe there was a piece that will fit
I don't know where to fit it

Tell me what kind of prize can you get
Where you don't want to win it?

Can't you see I'm weary
Maybe this news can wait

Can't you see I'm blurry
Maybe this blues can wait.back to top
No One Else
You're the moviestar
Of my innerspace
Come to town a while
Bring your quiet place

Show me how it's done
With a wave of your hand
I'm destroyed and
Recreated

No one else can make me cry like you, you love

You're the only one
Who did everything right
Come to play with me
Come to change my mind

Sleepy valium
Low red light in the wine
I've been thinking about
The one you left behind

No one else can make me cry like you, you love

Laughing lost her way she caught a train to far points north and
Left the phone bill on the table in the sun
She'd had enough of her old self same face same space she wanted
Wider fields where she could run

Come on then
Time is getting late
Show me how you
Make it all right

No one else can make me cry like you
No one else can make me fly get me high shine light inside and make me cry like you, you love

Brand New Baby
Time you needed time out of the mainstream
Out on your only
Alone to find yourself somehow

So I'm a bit surprised to see you lately
Beside a brand new baby
But if it makes you happy now

I guess that's great
I guess you're not mine
Brand new baby beside you now oh yeah

I guess that's great
You don't see me cryin'
And there's nobody to slow you down oh yeah

If you're feeling sorry try to contain it
You don't need to save me
Don't waste your pity anyhow

And you might like to believe I'm devastated
To see you with your brand new baby
Well if it makes you happy nowi guess that's great
I guess you're not mine
Brand new baby beside you now oh yeah

I guess that's great
You don't see me cryin'
And there's nobody to slow you down

Seen you with your brand new baby
Sure it fazes me just to hear you laughing
Makes me just a little crazy but I guess it's a great thing
If it makes you happy nowback to top
Falling
High above the mid way lights
High above the rides you me and the sky
The whole world looks small tonight
And you said that we could never really fly

Well if you're right and we're nothing at all
Tell me why did I keep thinking 'bout you calling
If you're right and we're nothing at all
Tell me why do you keep thinking that you're falling

Swaying singing at the skywheel top
Then you say that I can never make you mine
Well lights rings constellations turn and stop
Kiss me once again and change your mind

If you're right and we're nothing at all
Tell me why did I keep thinking 'bout you calling
If you're right and we're nothing at all
Tell me why do you keep thinking that you're fallingback to top
In Another Life
Hold on tight to what you believe in
Hold on to whatever you need, o yeah
Step inside the sweet illusion
Of another life

Where it's enought to be well meaning
And if you crash your plane you can try it again, o yeah
Well this time while you're believing
In another life

Too late I'm done waiting
I won't be there
In another life
In another time
You always believed we'd mend it later
In another life
In another time
Well I'm done waiting

When you finally tend to your blessings
You'd be mistaken to count on me, o yeah
Because you believed we'd do our loving
In another life
Darling

Too late I'm done waiting
I won't be there
In another life
In another time
You always believed we'd mend it later
In another life
In another time
Well I'm done waiting

If you come round to see me don't be surprised
Maybe I'm out waiting in another life
In another life....back to top
I'll Feel for You
If you're afraid to cry
Though you could use it once in awhile
Nothing will cloud your eyes
You've been through one of those times
When nothing's real or getting through
And it seems like you've forgotten how to feel
Call me
I'll feel
For you
And some days you'll feel for me too

If you're afraid to smile
Though you could use it just to survive
There's nowhere you want to drive
And you're only staying alive
'cause it's the thing to do
And it seems your bell's forgotten how to ring
Call me
I'll feel
For you
And some days you'll feel for me too

If you're afraid to cry
Though you could use it just to survive
There's nowhere you want to drive
And you're only staying alive
'cause it's the thing to do
And it seems your mouth's forgotten how to sing
Call me
Yeah
Call me
Call me
I'll feel
For you
And some days you'll feel for me too.back to top
