Lyrics

I’m a lucky guy I have a house, I have a family. I have a beautiful wife Look! There she stands out in the garden. It’s a beautiful day. The sun is shining, the flowers blooming. I’ve got a pretty good job- I get to travel, go to conventions. Wo oh oh, I’m a lucky man And I have been dealt such an excellent hand. Do you believe in the powers above? Let’s take a walk through the valley of the shadow of love. I drive an SUV- My children’s praises slapped on the bumper. I have an IRA- Plenty of money for when I’m eighty. I go to PTA- I want to kill them, but I don’t. I have an office downtown. I play around with my secretary. Meet me back in room number 305 Turn out the lights, toss the covers aside Let me introduce you to the powers above. Let’s take a walk through the valley of the shadow of love.

Lyrics

Won’t you go to a movie with me? I’ll start the car, it doesn’t matter what we see. Wear that thing that makes me crazy. And we can be like lovers tonight. We can pretend that everything’s alright. Tonight (tonight) I’ll put it all aside Tonight (tonight) I’ll take you for a ride I just want to feel the passion. And I can touch you there and look into your eyes And you can make believe that nothing is a lie. Tonight (tonight) I’ll take you for a ride Tonight (tonight) We’ll put it all aside. Play that song that makes me crazy. And we can be like lovers tonight. And we can pretend that everything’s alright. Tonight.

Lyrics

It’s been raining all day And I’m afraid that you might call Whatever it is, whatever I say It must be wrong. Every sound at the door, Every creak in the floor (I’m so alone) I’m lying awake And she’s in the lake And you’re on the phone Watching her swim Falling in love, where does it go? Do we understand A face on the screen, a magazine A touch of the hand Is delicate? Do we forget why we walk in a room Or the actor’s name- the number of the train At the end of the day? Watching her swim

Lyrics

Say, did you hear about Mary? Her name was in the obituary. She used to sit beside me in the class, Now she’s buried underneath the grass. Mary underground I never said goodbye. Even though it was long ago Still I sit and wonder why. I think of Mary sometimes As though she were still around. I hate to think of Mary underground. Mary used to call me on the phone And talk off all her problems – quite alone But in the morning she was always down. I hate to think of Mary underground. An empty desk is filled- Someone’s taken her place As though she was never there, But I can’t forget her face White as snow, but pretty as anyone around. I hate to think of Mary underground.

Lyrics

You work and eat and go to sleep And it is all a day. The time you spend inside yourself It seems to wash away. You settle into cigarettes And pieces of white wine. You search the dial- it takes a while To find penumbra 9. So have a good day and I’ll see you tomorrow- Do you believe at all? Have a good day and I’ll see you tomorrow, She says with a smile. She’s faking a mile. It’s raining like forever And the tinsel in your town Is running like mascara- there’s a panic going down. The millionaires have buttoned up Their mansions for the show. The merchants weep as they sit beside their radios.  I listen to the ambulance that is you.  I stare into the darkness, feeling like a map. Estragon and Vladimir are waiting on Godot. The tv preacher packs his bags and says he’s gotta go. The violinist scratches out a song unrecognized. The cashier rings the final note and kindly blinks her eye.

Lyrics

She She wanted everything she wanted diamond rings- the south of France in spring. She wanted romance, an intimate dance. She wanted love. He He needed solitude He wanted nothing to do With the ignorant multitudes. Who would have guessed That he would be blessed- He would find love. It could happen to anybody In any country, anywhere in the world. There’s no place you can run from love. You might think that you’re immune, Unaffected by the pull of the moon- From the stars in line with the planets above. Eve said to Adam, “I know There’s got to be a place to go. This doesn’t seem like paradise to me. Hey! Take a look at that tree?” He He thought that he could say The words to make her stay. She wanted romance, an intimate dance But he wanted love. He wanted love.

Lyrics

Ruby’s packed, she’s ready to go. She found salvation on a late night show. She signed the check. She licked the stamp And ordered tickets to the boneyard. A foolish man builds his house in the sand. A foolish woman comes and takes him by the hand. Land a job, choose a steeple Make reservations for the boneyard. Georgie Porgy, Pudding and Pie Knows how to make all the young girls cry. Their sons and lovers, they kiss goodbye. An invitation to the boneyard. Face to face the young men stand. Blind duty in a foreign land Fire in the sky, blood in the sand. Another white cross in the boneyard. Another soldier lost to the boneyard. Lewellyn Swift, he’s never been kissed. They tell him he don’t know what he’s missed. They say he must need a psychiatrist To make a place in the boneyard. He’s not welcome in the boneyard. Politician, slick suit. People move when he blow his flute. Black gold, lot’s of loot. It won’t keep him from the boneyard. He’ll be heading to the boneyard.

Lyrics

Red hair, black shirt Yellow pants It’s not hard to imagine romance With the girl walking backwards. Give her a wink, Buy her a drink. Do you think You’ve got time to swim in the sink With the girl walking backwards? The girl walking backwards. Dare I say that I wanna touch her? Dare I think that she wants to be touched? Dare I dream of a passionate encounter with the… Turns her head Knocks ‘em dead. Lie in bed. Think of all the stupid things you might have said To the girl walking backwards. Another day Another dream Another place Another chance to imagine romance With the girl walking backwards. I want to touch her.

Lyrics

There’s a little store on a country road Where all the farmers and the housewives go They sit and talk about the price of things They’ve never even heard Of Helsinki The kids all gather in their cars Radios blasting loud with rock n’ roll guitars They roll ‘em up and they burn ‘em down A million miles away from Helsinki. I remember that night at the Tastee Freeze Leaning on my car- you walked right up to me. You said something that I still can’t believe. And for a moment in your eyes I thought I saw Helsinki. When the world is fast asleep Up to the rooftop I go I drive another nail and stare at the stars I think of places far away, Faces I have never known. Sometimes I wonder what it’s like In Helsinki.
