Blue Veins

When I was surrounded by the world
You were the only one who came
And you were the only one astounded
Which kept me grounded
As the other girls thrashed my very name

Then I looked over
Just in time to see her smiling back at me
And saying everything’s OK
As long as you’re inside my blue veins
Your blue veins

Yeah, and the feeling that you gave me
No matter what I do or where I go it always will remain
And those who would enslave me
To get to me must get past you and will have no luck
‘Cause you’ll protect me from all pain

(That’s true, you know why) You’re the most beautiful

Yeah, the most beautiful thing
‘Cause anything else can’t compare
Must be the blood that’s running through your blue veins
Your blue veins

Your blue veins

And I know you won’t deceive me like the rest
And there’s nothing you need to explain
You always were the first one to believe me
When I said to you girl I think it’s gonna rain
But I could be wrong

Yeah, but all of these things, all these things
They’re all truly nice but ain’t nothing
Ain’t nothing compared to the love
That’s running through your little blue veins
Your blue veins

Broken Boy Soldier

I’m pulling down questions from my shelf
I’m asking forgiveness
I ain’t asking nobody but myself
and I want you to know this
and I want you to know this
You’re rifling through a box of toys
that were handed down to me
just take out the ones you want and then
give the rest to my family

I’m gonna go back to school today
but I’m dropping myself off
I’m throwing the childhood scene away
I’m through ripping myself off

I’m done ripping myself off

I’m child and man and child again
the toy broken boy soldier
I’m child and man then child again
the boy never gets older
the boy never gets older
the boy never gets older
the boy never gets older
the boy never gets older
never gets older
the boy broken toy soldier
the boy…
the boy!

Call It A Day

Can we call it a day
Now would that be okay
Can we just go our own separate ways (ways)

Cause I’m cold and I’m wet and I’m willing to bet
That you constructed this maze (maze)

Well I stumble around
Trying to follow the sound
Then something takes hold of my hand (my hand)

It becomes such a mess and I’d venture to guess
That you concocted this plan (plan)

And I don’t know what to do
Cause it’s always been you

Who helped me to make up my mind (my mind)

But I’d steak my life
And I’ll swear by this knife
That it’s all by your design (design)

Enough has been said
It goes around in my head
Until I break down and cry (and cry)

I wouldn’t be surprised
If that look in your eyes
Was your way of saying goodbye (goodbye).

(x2)

Hands

Girl, you got those hands that heal
help me get in touch with what I feel
Cause you understand and you sympathize
and you know me best its no surprise

When you’re with me there’s a light and I can see my way
when you speak to me it’s a song and I know what to say

Girl, you got those eyes that see
help me find the good that’s inside me
Cause you’re the only one that really knows
how the feeling comes and why it goes

When you’re with me there’s a light and I can see my way
when you speak to me it’s a song and I know what to say

When you’re with me there’s a light and I can see my way
when you speak to me it’s a song and I know what to say

When you listen there’s a hope and I know I’m being heard
when you smile at me then I know that we don’t have to speak a word

When you’re with me there’s a light and I can see my way
when you speak to me it’s a song and I know what to say

Intimate Secretary

I’ve got a rabbit, it likes to hop
I’ve got a girl and she likes to shop
The other foot looks like it won’t drop
I had an uncle and he got shot

Is this greeting the type that’s meant for me?
Are you part of this khakistocracy

This ringing in my ears won’t stop
I’ve got a red Japanese tea-pot
I’ve got a pen but I lost the top
I’ve got so many things you haven’t got

This fellow’s craft is just not for sharing
He’s not an intimate secretary

I’ve got a rabbit it likes to hop
I’ve got a girl and she likes to shop
The other foot looks like it won’t drop
I had an uncle but he got shot

Then on rubble of skull is monarchy
Down with luck we’ll see Ecclesiarchy

Our fellow’s craft is just not for sharing
He’s not an intimate secretary

(This ringing in my ears won’t stop) The Ex-archives inspector inquisitor
(I’ve got a red Japanese tea-pot) The demockery streets master

(I’ve got a pen but I lost the top) Are you part of this khakistocracy?
(I’ve got so many things you haven’t got) Is this greeting the type that’s meant for me?

Level

My baby’s on the level
I try to read her mind
She’s on the straight and narrow
I’m guessing all the time

But I can’t see the road
If I’m looking at the signs
I’m carrying a load
And stepping out of line

My baby’s on the level

I try to read her mind
She’s on the straight and narrow
I’m guessing all the time

Oh well how can I see the road
If I’m looking at the signs?
I’m carrying a load
And stepping out of line

Steady, As She Goes

Find yourself a girl and settle down
Live a simple life in a quiet town

Steady as she goes (steady as she goes)
Steady as she goes (steady as she goes)

So steady as she goes

Your friends have shown a kink in the single life
You’ve had too much to think, now you need a wife

Steady as she goes (steady as she goes)
So steady as she goes (steady as she goes)

Well here we go again
You’ve found yourself a friend that knows you well
But no matter what you do
You’ll always feel as though you tripped and fell

So steady as she goes

When you have completed what you thought you had to do
And your blood’s depleted to the point of stable glue

Then you’ll get along
Then you’ll get along

Steady as she goes (steady as she goes)
So steady as she goes (steady as she goes)

Well here we go again
You’ve found yourself a friend that knows you well
But no matter what you do
You’ll always feel as though you tripped and fell

So steady as she goes
Steady as she goes

Settle for a girl (settle for a girl), neither up or down (neither up or down)
Sell it to the crowd (sell it to the crowd) that is gathered round (that is gathered round)

Settle for a girl (settle for a girl), neither up or down (neither up or down)
Sell it to the crowd (sell it to the crowd) that is gathered round (that is gathered round)

So steady as she goes (steady as she goes)
Steady as she goes (steady as she goes)

Steady as she goes (steady as she goes)
So steady as she goes (steady as she goes)

Steady as she goes, are you steady now?
Steady as she goes, are you steady now?

Steady as she goes, are you steady now?
Steady as she goes, are you steady now?

Steady as she goes

Store Bought Bones

Down on your hands and knees, underneath the poplar trees
Digging through sticks and stones, looking for store bought bones

Waiting on the rising sun, clutching at your holster gun
Praying on a shooting star that I can be wherever you are

Looking through a telescope, maybe there’s a sign of hope
Leaving everything behind, stirring a store bought mind

Sitting at the edge of your seat, wishing you were here by me
Sifting through the mud and the bricks, looking for a store bought fix

You can’t buy what you can’t find
What you can’t buy, what you find
What you can’t buy, what you can

You can’t buy what you can’t find, what you can
You can’t buy what you can’t find, what you can
Buy what you find, what you can’t find, what you can

You can’t buy what you can’t find, what you can
You can’t buy what you can’t find, what you can

Together

You and me forever
we belong together
and we’ll always endeavor
throughout any type of weather

You want everything to be just like (2x)
The story’s that you read but never write (2x)
You gotta learn to live
and live and learn
You gotta learn to give
and wait your turn
or you’ll get burned

You wrote our names down on the sidewalk
the rain came and washed them off
So we should write them again on wet cement
So people a long time from now will know what we meant

You want every morning to be just like (2x)
The story’s that you read but you never write (2x)

You gotta learn to live
and live and learn
You gotta learn to give
and wait your turn
and only concern

I’m adding something new to the mixture
so there’s a different hue to your picture
a different ending to this fairy tale
we’ll know sunset into which we sail

You want everything to be just like (2x)
The stories that you read but you can’t write (You can’t write)
You gotta learn to live
and live and learn
Oh, you gotta learn to give
and wait your turn
or you’ll get burned

Yellow Sun

Yellow sun is shining in the afternoon
I’d really like to tell you but I feel it’s too soon
my actions are dictated by the phase of the moon
the phase of the moon

The sun it isn’t hiding when it sets on you
it’s not a coward like me and I know that it’s true
waiting for the darkness now is all I can do
it’s all I can do

And if the sun should follow us into your room
where the courage will be robbed from me to tell you the truth
the setting suns the only thing that’s shining on you
it’s shining on you

You’re making me hungry
But what’s really funny is it’s not sunny anymore

And when I finally told you when the sun has gone
you’re laughing ’cause I thought I was the only one
and the only thing that’s left for me is the rising sun
the rising sun

You’re making me hungry
you’re making me hungry
but what’s really funny is it’s not sunny anymore
you’re making me hungry
you’re making me hungry
but what’s really funny is it’s not sunny anymore
