Lyrics

YOU MAKE ME WANT TO BE GOOD

I’ve done some bad things in my life,
things I know that I never should.
But here’s looking at you tonight,
baby you make me want to be good.

Been drunk when I should have been sober.
Thought I could handle things I never could.
Yeah I know, I’ve lied and I’ve cheated,
but you make me want to be good.

I’m not asking you to forgive me.
If I were you I know I never would.
I just want you to understand
you make me want to be good.
I’m so sorry I made you cry babe.
If I could make it up you know I would.
I wanna dry your tears forever,
cause you make me want to be good.
Yes, you make me want to be good.

I’m not asking you to forgive me.
If I were you I know I never would.
I just want you to understand
you make me want to be good.
Yes, you make me want to be good.

ALL I HAVE TO GIVE

You look at me now as if I’ve gone mad
You just don’t believe that I said what I said
You never wanted friendship or even respect
Guess when it comes to me, babe
You never know what to expect

You know I’m a drinker, you know that I lie
But you never knew I was this kind of guy
You never thought we could be any good
You thought I would hurt you
And maybe I should

I’ll give you my heart, I’ll sell you my soul
I’ll die for your love babe, I’ll make it my goal
I’ll give you my life and death, all I have to give
I’ll kill for you love babe, if you don’t want to live

You’re my disfunction, my codependancy
You’re everything that’s the matter with me
You’re my every problem, and every vice
And if you want my whole world, babe
I wouldn’t think twice

I’ll give you… (*2)

I look at you now, I must have gone mad
I know I’m alone now
And I know that you’re dead

BLUE SMOKE

You’re getting wronger, your nose longer
You knock things over every time you move
So make a label, if you’re able
This kind of thing comes naturally to you

There’s a rumble, and a mumble
And all the rattle of a rusty maze
If there’s only you’re prancing pony
Then why you blowing blue smoke in my face?

Can you tell me where the water runs
Now that you’ve gone and had your fun?
Don’t you wallow in what’s past and done
In the barrel of a loaded gun

Quit your howling, and your growling
And get some sleep before the night is through
Cause in the morning you’ll be running
As if the devil’s coming after you?

Can you tell me where the water runs
Now that you’ve gone and had your fun?
Don’t you wallow in what’s past and done
In the barrel of a loaded gun

Complicated? No simply jaded
Is not even your reflection clear?
Getting tired of licking fire?
You stupid bastard then come over here!

Don’t you tell me where the water runs
Now that you’ve gone and had your fun?
Don’t you wallow in what’s past and done
In the barrel of a loaded gun

GOOD GIRLS GO TO HEAVEN

Everywhere I look, there’s a bunch of godforsaken dames
Overflowing ashtrays and bottles full of dreams
The lights start to flicker, but it might be these old eyes
That look you up and down as you walk in from the street
You glance in my direction, I buy another drink
You make me feel like I’m falling down
And all the good girls go to heaven
But all the bad girls seem to stick around

Ever since she left it’s been hard to stay sober
It’s hard to kick these habits that she left me with
But now the light hits your face and you dazzle this old heart
When you smile at me and give me a wink
And you look a hundred dollars, an inebriated goddess
You look so nice beneath the neon light
And all the good girls go to heaven
But all you bad girls, you seek me out every night

I buy you a drink and you look into my eyes
I listen to your stories, and then I tell you mine
You say you have a lover, but I can’t say that I mind
You’re perfect, and he ain’t here tonight
I ask you will you follow me, you nod and then you smile
My arms are wrapped around you and the rain pours down
And all the good girls go to heaven
But all you bad girls, wind up in my part of town

Now the sun is coming up, and I think you’ve had enough
You can’t hold your liquor and you really should go home
I can’t bear to take you home to him, but you can’t stay with me
And you really shouldn’t walk home alone
So I drag you along, you kiss me on the way
I know I want to have you but I never will
And all the good girls go to heaven
But all you bad girls, keep on haunting me still

And I wander through the morning, wondering about you,
Wonder at the wonder that we even met
And all the good girls go to heaven
But all you bad girls, seem to be all I ever get

LEAVING ON THE RED-EYE

Sorry if I bother you, I won’t call you again
Just hope you’ll think of me every now and then
I’m leaving on the red-eye tonight to New Orleans
I need a change of scene and a change of jeans

I’m sick of this old town, and this old blues
Today I’m heading out, got my traveling shoes on
Been waiting for this day since the day I was born
So now I’m going to New Orleans where I can blow my horn

I’m leaving on the red-eye to New Orleans
I’m sick of living at my Aunt Christine’s
I’m sick of this town and its production machines
So I’m leaving on the red-eye to New Orleans

Sorry for all I’ve done to you, I didn’t realize
All my hellos turned out to be your goodbyes
I’ll see the big city come the break of dawn
Don’t worry about me cause when you wake up I’ll be gone

I’m leaving on the red-eye to New Orleans
If you know who I am you’ll know what it means
I’m sick of all you disco and dancing queens
So I’m leaving on the red-eye to New Orleans

Cause I’m leaving on the red-eye to New Orleans
I’m sick of living at my aunt Christine’s
I’m sick of all you disco and dancing queens
So I’m leaving on the red-eye to New Orleans

Sorry if I bother you, I won’t call you again
Just hope you’ll think of me every now and then
I’m leaving on the red-eye tonight to New Orleans
I need a change of scene and a change of jeans

Cause I’m leaving on the red-eye to New Orleans
I won’t hold no grudge by any means
Don’t wanna spend my life pumping gasoline
So I’m leaving on the red-eye to New Orleans

SAILING ON THE CURRENT

As I look in your eyes, I dread our goodbye
I can see you’ve been crying and you want me to stay
But don’t worry tonight, it’ll all be alright
I can see what you’re trying, but I must go away

I have loved and I have lost, I have turned and I have tossed
I remember that old town in that old foggy bay
We were young foolish lovers, but now we’ve discovered
I was always that old clown and I must go away

I’m a-sailing on the current, I’m a-going on the breeze
I won’t say we weren’t but now we’re not meant to be
Cause there’s no way for me to stay, so don’t cry for me
Cause I’m sailing on the current, I must go away

Now the boatman is calling and I stand here recalling
The first time I met you, I can’t keep it at bay
You were radiant and pretty and we owned that old city
And I swore I would love you, but now I must go away.

CHORUS

Now the ship will be leaving and I know you’ll be grieving
But it’ll all seem much better by the light of a new day
And you’ll find someone younger who will share your young hunger
Don’t wait for my letter cause I must go away

CHORUS

WEE HATS AND BEARDS

There are dwarves inside my head
They play their games when I am sleeping
When everyone has gone to bed
I can hear them in there creeping

Wee hats and beards

They’re out to get us one and all
And they won’t leave no survivors
They’ll replace our teeth with nails
And our blood and bones with iron

Wee hats and beards

There’s a world that they have made
They’re inside everybody
You can hear them running round
If you listen very closely

SLEEPY

It’s been a long day, I’m very tired
All day have I roamed
But now the sun is going down and I’m going home
I have a feeling that this old road won’t be too long for me
And I can’t wait get home so I can go to sleep

I feel like I’m late, but there’s no hurry
No I’ll be there soon enough
Though things are starting to slow down now it sure has been tough
I think I’m reaching the shallow end although it has been deep
And I can’t wait till I get home so I can go to sleep

Auroras above, asphalt below, My mind is set adrift
Although it has been mad at times each moment was a gift
I’m thankful for the friends I had and the loves I got to keep
And I can’t wait till I get home so I can go to sleep

NEAR YOU

You could bring me roses and you could write me songs
You could write me letters, serenade me all night long
But that’s not what I’m looking for
Cause all I wanna do
Is be near, be near you

You could take me places, show me where you’ve been
You could show me your faces, things I’ve never seen
But that’s not what I’m after babe
Cause all I wanna do
Is be near, be near you

You could see me weeping, you could dry my tears
I have nothing to hide babe, not my deepest fears
You know why that is darling
Cause all I wanna do
Is be near, be near you

I know you wanna be with me, I know you got the time
And I know that you love me, so why leave me high and dry?
Why do you do it babe?
When all I wanna do
Is be near, be near you

You could say that you love me, you could make me your wife
But that’s not what I need, babe, I need to be a part of your life
You know I do
Cause all I wanna do
Is be near, be near you.

You could bring me roses…

ON THE EDGE OF TOWN

There’s a place on the edge of town
Where I go when I’m feeling down
And they’re always friendly and they fill up my glass
It’s one of those places where
You can sit almost anywhere
You can talk, you can drink, you can get you some ass

There’s a girl there I like to meet
She sweeps me right off my feet
She drinks and talks dirty and she wears a red gown
And after a drink or two
We retire to her bedroom
And that’s all that happens on the edge of my town

That pretty little girl is trapped in that world
Each time I see her swear to take her away
But she says, listen to me, cat
It’s not as simple as all that
It’s all that I know, I have to stay

As the sun comes up there’s tears in her eyes
Her face is pink just like the skies
She tells me she’s pregnant, then she breaks down
But she still won’t let me take her away
My child won’t see the light of day
Cause she has to stay on the edge of my town

CHORUS

SAME

Everybody’s laughing, I don’t know why that is
But I feel ashamed
They all bring out their daughters, I don’t know where they’ve been
But I feel enslaved
Everybody’s singing but I don’t know the words
And I feel the blame
I can feel them staring at my naked body
And I feel enraged
Yeah I feel enraged

Their eyes are all empty, their tongues have been severed
Their brains are like oatmeal, their hands are like steel
And I feel afraid
Yeah I feel afraid

The room is crowded, everybody’s screaming
And I feel estranged
A young woman cuts her heart out, a man licks the wound
And I feel ashamed

Their fingers are all bleeding, their noses have been slit
Their hearts have no rythms, their lungs have no power
Their voices are electric, their voice is like a grave
And I feel afraid

And I feel afraid

My heart was a-pounding, my voice was like sand
And I felt the change
My skin feels like leather, my bones feel like iron
And I feel the change
Yeah I feel the change

Their footsteps sound like thunder, their touch feels like lightning
Their whisper sounds like screaming, their screaming sounds like death
And I feel the same
And I feel the same
And I feel the same

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN

I had to write, he called me up last night
He was drunk and crazy, said he had a gun
He said I’m gonna end it all
I propped myself against a wall
I couldn’t leave, cause my trip had just begun

I was standing at the terminal when I got the call
He didn’t make any sense, I heard him take the safety off
I said: You gotta call someone.
He said: I got a gun.
I’m not going back to jail I’ve been there enough

I called uncle Fred, he rushed over there
He was shaken up and scared, just like me
When Freddy got there he had a loaded shotgun to his head
He was calm and serene, his eyes were blank

Thanks for writing back. I’ve got his stuff all packed now
The cops got to him before the shotgun shells did
They locked him up, they shot him up with drugs to keep him calm
Said: It’s OK kid.

I don’t know what to do, tell me what would you?
I’m out of my depth, that’s for sure
It’s all kind of scary, he’s not the man I married
His eyes have changed, he’s not the same as before

I meant to write you sooner, but I’ve just been busy
He’s out of the hospital now, says he’s feeling fine
If he says he’s feeling better that’s enough for me
I love him and I trust him in spite of everything

A little rain might get you wet but I know how to forgive and forget
I know that he’ll try, he said he’s giving up the booze
I know he’ll be better, none of this will matter
For he loves me and I love him
Tell me what else can I do?

FOR SHOW

When winter snow buries the leaves
You will know, you will believe the wind will blow

But soon again it will be gone
What will remain?
After the sun, after the rain?

Only the best are laid to rest before their time

We come and we go, it can not be helped
Who made it so?
Is this a shelf are we for show?

PITY ME

The lights are coming on and I can’t go home
There’s nothing for me there no more
I know it’s all my fault, I won’t deny
I should have realized before

I don’t want you to pity me
Don’t need a shoulder to cry on
I don’t want you to pity me
But it won’t hurt you to try
No it couldn’t hurt to try

My glass is empty, so is my heart
I haven’t got a leg to stand on
Here’s to the mess I made, here’s to old friends
Here’s to you taking my hand

I’ll walk you home my love, don’t pay no mind
If it seems like I’m not here
She may not have been the first, but of all my cuts
She’s the deepest my dear

CHORUS

Please don’t mind me tonight, I’ll sleep on the floor
Just leave a crack on the window
Alright, if you insist, I’ll lay down on the bed
But I promise to lay low

CHORUS
