My Favorite Mistake
I woke up and called this morning
The tone of your voice was a warning
That you don't care for me anymore

I made up the bed we sleep in
I looked at the clock when you creep in
It's 6 a.m. and I'm alone

[chorus]
Did you know when you go
It's the perfect ending
To the bad day I was just beginning
When you go all I know is
You're my favorite mistake

Your friends are sorry for me
They watch you pretend to adore me
But I'm no fool to this game

Now here comes your secret lover
She'd be unlike any other
Until your guilt goes up in flames

Chorus

You're my favorite mistake

Well maybe nothin' lasts forever
Even when you stay together
I don't need forever after
It's your laughter won't let me go
So I'm holding on this way

Did you know, could you tell
You were the only one
That I ever loved
Now everything's so wrong

Did you see me walking by?
Did it ever make you cry?

You're my favorite mistake
You're my favorite mistake
You're my favorite mistakeback to top
There Goes the Neighborhood
Hey let's party let's get down let's turn the radio on
This is the meltdown
Get out the camera take a picture
The drag queens and the freaks
Are all out on the town
And cowboy jane's in bed
Nursing a swollen head

Sunshine sally and peter ustanov
Don't like the scene anyhow
I dropped acid on a saturday night
Just to see what the fuss was about
Now there goes the neighborhood

The photo chick made to look sickly
Is standing in her panties in the shower
She plays the guitar in the bathroom
While the police dust her mother's plastic flowers
And schooboy john's in jail
Making a killing through the u s mail

Sunshine sally and peter ustanov
Don't like the scene anyhow
I dropped acid on a saturday night
Just to see what the fuss was about
There goes the neighborhood
There goes the neighborhood

This is the movie of the screenplay of the book about a girl who meets a junkie
The messenger gets shot down just for carrying the message to a flunkie
We can't be certain who the villans are 'cuz everyone's so pretty
But the afterparty's sure to be a wing ding as it moves into your city

Sunshine sally and peter ustanov
Don't like the scene anyhow
I dropped acid on a saturday night
Just to see what the stink was about
Sunshine sally and peter ustanov
Don't like the scene anyhow
I dropped acid on a saturday night
Just to see what the fuss was about
There goes the neighborhood
There goes the neighborhoodback to top
Riverwide
I spent a year in the mouth of a whale
With a flame and a book of signs
You'll never know how hard I've failed
Trying to make up for lost time

Once I believed in things unseen
I was blinded by the dark
Out of the multitude to me
He came and broke my heart

When the dust in the field has flown
And the youngest of hearts has grown
And you doubt you will ever be free
Don't bail on me

River is wide and oh so deep
And it winds and winds around
I dream we're happy in my sleep
Floating down and down and down

And the tide rushes by where we stand
And the earth underneath turns to sand
And we're waiting for someone to see
Don't bail on me

Tell ma I loved the man
Even though I turned and ran
Lovely and fine I could have been
Laying down in the palm of his hand
Laying down in the palm of his hand
Laying down in the palm of his hand
Staying down in the palm of his hand

In the morning you wait for the sun
And secretly hope it won't come
But time washes everyone clean
Honey now don't bail on me
Don't bail on me
Don't bail on meback to top
It Don't Hurt
It don't hurt like it did.
I can sing my song again.
It don't hurt like it did.
I can sing my song again.

I scraped the paper off the wall.
I put down carpet in the hall.
I left no trace of you at all.
And I can sing my song again.

I don't dream 'cuz I don't sleep.
The moon is hanging like your hat.
The sun comes up, well I don't see
Curtains tied up like a bat.

The electric man looks good today.
Maybe not, well I'm trying hard.
Trying hard to feel that way,
The electric man's a good place to start.

Took your paintings off the wall.
That one of me that you called doll.
I added on 'cuz the house was feeling small.
Now I can sing my song again.

I don't think of you no more
Except for everyday or two.
I don't think of you no more
Except for in between the sun and moon.

Packed up and moved out after all.
Bulldozed the house and watched it fall.
That blessed sight I still recall
I can sing my song again
I can sing my song again

It don't hurt like it did, it hurts worse.
Who do I kid?

Maybe That's Something
We lay around just like gurus
In borrowed robes
And talk about nothing
Well maybe that's something
Maybe that's something

You stretch out across a long long table
Without hesitation
You say, I'm willing and able.

Maybe that's something
Maybe that's one thing more than I've seen
Maybe that's something more than nothing.

You say good, I say you should, will you be there?
Making miracles is hard work,
Most people give up before they happen.

Maybe that's something
Maybe that's one thing more than I've seen
Maybe that's something more than nothing,
More than nothing, more than nothing.

Maybe that's something
Maybe that's one thing more than I've seen
Maybe that's something more than nothing
More than nothing, more than nothing, more than nothing.

Anything But Down
I light your cigarettes
I bring you apples from the vine
How quickly you forget
I run the bath and pour the wine
I bring you everything that floats into your mind

But you don't bring me anything but down
You don't bring me anything but down
You don't bring me anything but down
When you come 'round

You are a raging sea
I pull myself out everyday
I plea insanity
Cause I can't leave but I can't stay
You say won't you come find me and yes is what I say

You don't bring me anything but down
You don't bring me anything but down
Everything is crashing to the ground
Maybe I'm not your perfect kind
Maybe I'm not what you had in mind
Maybe we're just killing time

You with your silky words
And your eyes of green and blue
You with your steel beliefs
That don't match anything you do
It was so much easier before you became you

You don't bring me anything but down
You don't bring me anything but down
Everything just crashes to the ground
When you come around
When you come around

No more playing seek and hide
No more long and wasted nights
Can't you make it easy on yourself

I know you wish you were strong
You wish you were never wrong
Well I got some wishes of my ownback to top
The Difficult Kind
I think I was wrong
I think you were right
All my angry words
Will keep me up at night
Through the old screen door
I still hear you say
Honey won't you stop
Treating me that way

If you could only see
What love has made of me
Then I'd no longer be in your mind
The difficult kind
Cause babe I've changed

Tell it to me slow
Tell me with your eyes
If anyone should know
How to let it slide
I swear I can see you
Coming up the drive
There ain't nothing like regret
To remind you you're alive

If you could only see
What love has made of me
Then I'd no longer be in your mind
The difficult kind
Cause babe I've changed

I crossed the canyon a thousand times
But never noticed what was mine
What you'll remember of me tonight
Well, it almost makes me cry
Yeah, it almost makes me cry

Oh ballbreaking moon and ridiculing stars
The older I get, the closer you are
Don't you have somewhere that you need to be
Instead of hanging here making a fool of me

If you could only see
What love has made of me
Then I'd no longer be in your mind
The difficult kind
But you won't see the change in me
If you could only see
What love has made of me
But I'll forever be in your mind
The difficult kind
But you won't see, no you won't see
The good in me
But babe I've changed
Cause babe I've changed

Mississippi
Every step of the way
We walk the line
Your days are numbered
So are mine

Time is piling up
We struggle and we scrape
All boxed in
Nowhere to escape

The city's just a jungle
More games to play
I'm trapped in the heart of it
Trying to get away

I was raised in the country
Been working in the town
I been in trouble since i
Set my suitcase down

I ain't got nothing for you
I had nothing before
Don't even have anything
For myself anymore

Sky's full of fire
And the rain is pouring down
There's nothing you can sell me
So I'll see you around

All my powers of expression
And thoughts so sublime
Could never do you justice
Reason or rhyme
There's only one thing that I did wrong
I stayed in mississippi a day too long

The devil's in the alley the mule kickin' in the stall
Say anything you wanna I've heard it all
I was thinking about the things that she said
I was dreaming I was sleeping in you bed

Walking through the leaves falling from the trees
Feel like a stranger nobody sees
So many things we never will undo
I know you're sorry well I'm sorry too

Some people will offer you their hand and some won't
Last night I knew you tonight I don't
I need something strong to distract my mind
I'm gonna look at you 'til my eyes go blind

Well I got here following the southern star
I crossed that river just to be where you are
There's only one thing that I did wrong
I stayed in mississippi a day too long

Well my ship's been split to splinters it's sinking fast
I'm drowning in the poison got no future got no past
But my heart is not weary it's light and it's free
I've got nothing but affection for those who've sailed with me

Everybody's moving if they ain't already there
Everybody's got to move somewhere
Well stick with me baby anyhow
Things should start to get interesting right about now

My clothes are wet tight on my skin
Not as tight as the corner that I painted myself in
I know that fortune is waiting to be kind
So give me your hand and say you'll be mine

The emptiness is endless cold as clay
You can always come back but you can't come back all the way
Well there's only one thing that I did wrong
I stayed in mississippi a day too long
Yeah the only thing that I did wrong
Was stayed in mississippi a day too long
The only thing that I did wrong
Was stayed in mississippi a day too longback to top

Uncle larry's hooked on ice again
He seems to be stuck in the 80's
He wears his members only jacket
Cause he thinks it turns on all the ladies

And all the white folks shake their asses
Looking for the two and four
I'll have mine in martini glasses
Cause I can't take it anymore

These are the days of empty kitchens
The rise and fall of mary ellen's hairdo
I think she's found a new religion
Studying the kabalah in her j crew

And all the rich kids shake their asses
Looking for the two and four
Well I'll have mine with blackstrap molasses
Cause I can't taste it anymore
No I can't taste it anymore

My friend gregg says it's all good
As the eastern seaboard's blown away
Now everything is going half price
So look at all the money we saved

And all the politicians shake their asses
Looking for the backdoor
I'll just be hanging out with the lasses
Cause they don't like the boys no more
No and I can't take it anymoreback to top
