Write a song for a new year/ happy birthday to myself greet it with a sigh and feign a smile Nobody around here/ seems to want to wish me well I've been hanging around for a while I thought I could be something/ at least something I could be proud about/ it’s an archers arrow flight And then it comes to nothin’/ thoughts you don’t wanna say out loud I know I’ll never be the perfect type There you go again talkin’ about love and all the pretty things you've been dreaming of I want it bad but maybe not bad enough and all it takes is a little white lie yes and all it takes is a little white lie I could fall like a drop bear/ might stumble and hit the ground Got no passage for the ride Well it's not that it's not fair/ you're the treasure I've finally found but now they only wanna take my life There you go again talkin’ about love and all the pretty things you've been dreaming of But will you be my friend when the goin' gets rough and all it takes is a little white lie yes and all it takes is a little white lie

It’s two to one they tell me if she goes she’s gonna stay it ends up that way And it's three to one they’re sayin' well you laugh now but it’s true it can happen to you too Long long winter’s comin on and the air is like a dagger in your bones last bike ride for the townies with their tight shorts on down Washington The lake has turned to water so to the reservoir we go see how we ebb & flow When the record store opens its doors we’ll get lost in vinyl stacks and make a B-line back Long long winter’s comin on and the air cuts like a dagger in yr bones last bike ride for the townies with their mohawks on down Henderson Bloomington oh Bloomington you burn me up with your Hoosier sun you got my baby clutched in your limestone arms it don’t take much with your pretty charms Well I’m leavin but don’t say I didn’t warn you Bloomington And though apart we’re growing and our time’s comes to an end we’re startin to be friends But the coastal nights are callin' Georgia, Brooklyn, or LA blow your wind my way Long long winter’s comin on and the air is like a dagger in your bones the last skate ride for the townies with their tight shorts on down Washington In Bloomington oh Bloomington you burn me up with your Hoosier sun you got my baby clutched in your limestone arms you know it don’t take much with your pretty charms well I’m leavin but don’t say I didn’t warn you And I’ll never leave you/ I’ll never leave you I’ll never leave you alone Bloomington

She looks like someone I used to know she moves like she’s putting on a show she’s someone trying hard to get to know crying tears of man in her eye shadow With fingers ever slight and light in grace she reaches for a hard embrace and her evening gown draped to the floor what you once knew upped and flew dead and gone for nevermore And all she wants is to be a boybutante in the lights and the love of her lovers She’ll sing you a song/ words that carry her along Sad-eyed queen of the scene She’s driving drunk her legs spread wide forgotten all the new things yet to hide it's a lonely evening you open up the dresser drawer dreamin’ of walking tall outside the door And all she wants to be a boybutante in the lights and the love of her lovers She’ll sing you a song/ words that carry her along Sad-eyed queen of the scene

Northern lights upon the waters frozen stars shine down upon our love just like a fire/ burnin’ hard and bright in the mornin’ light it’s gone and you’re all alone now/ just the ashes and the silence and the wind that’s unforgiving/ but it cools you just the same across your face that’s facing nowhere/ floating through the space that’s in between what’s dead and dying/ heading toward a once and future past that can’t be shaken/ and the images are crashing in your brain sometimes it’s beautiful/ sometimes it’s hard and dark and pain and now you’re frozen/ spinning helplessly out of control and now you’re falling/ break free from the confines of your soul filled with a demon/ driven by a force you did not know was deep inside you/ and that’s all I have/ all I have burning love lights upon the water

If you should see upon the street A man equipped with dipole feet With a family of curves trailing behind He’s a radar man with a micro mind His eyes take on a neon gleam His ears extend to yogi beam His mouth becomes another pulse gate His heart pumps blood at a video rate With a micro second and a micro wave And micro volts he fills his days And thereby in the course of time He becomes a micro-mind This radar man with the passing of years Attained an infinite impedance between his ears And finally succumbed to a heavy jolt When he got what he thought was a micro volt The doc looked up from his microscope Turned to his colleagues and softly spoke No trace of a brain can I find He’s a radar man with a micro-mind With a micro second and a micro wave And micro volts he fills his days And thereby in the course of time He becomes a micro-mind

Bad fog of loneliness Put a cloud on my single-mindedness I dream of sweet caress from you What makes tomorrow guess What makes me take for me and put aside the rest I dream of sweet caress from you So long woman I am gone So much pain to go through Come back maybe I was wrong Bad fog of loneliness Put a cloud on my single-mindedness I dream of sweet caress from you

You tell your friends at night that you really want me and all those other guys are just a show for me to see I can see it in your eyes and you’re just the girl for me why can’t you realize that I’m waiting in your wings You say you don’t love me / you just couldn’t be true you say you don’t love me but I know that you do I lay awake each night wishing you were close to me if I could hold you tight how happy I would be It feels so good inside when I pass you on the street if I could change your mind then we both would be complete You say you don’t love me / you just couldn’t be true you say you don’t love me but I know that you do

You got me goin on a wild goose chase locked me out of my own place gone gone where have you gone Travelin round this world again hear your voice but it’s growin thin it's gone gone where have you gone I wanna feel you in a foreign land feel so weak i can hardly stand so long so long so long so long Your sweet skin pressed up against mine Achilles heel kills me every time confusion in love/ confusion and love If I ever say I’m sorry will you hold back the tears from cryin heaven knows i’ve known heartbreak still I fear I’ll feel alone And every night when I dream a dream she comes to me naked and willing and I fall for her again She lights candles on a Friday night her small hands dancing to the light singing queen queen oh your majesty When we parted in the village rain we drew near and whispered and sang taxi took you away and in a blur you were gone I thought I saw ya in Central Park babe you shook me to the bone wherever I may walk I fear I’ll feel alone If I ever say I’m sorry will you hold back the tears from cryin heaven knows I’ve known heartbreak still I fear I’ll feel alone

It was just a heartbreak it was just a landslide she was just a milkshake but darlin’ you’re my honey pie You can come to Boston I can go to Lyndale you can come to Athens we’ll go to the Taco Stand Where you are, near but far far from this heart of mine it’s not my design babe I don’t wanna know High up in an airplane looking down at Barcelona you're driving me insane I only wanna show ya Wish I had the answers ain’t even got the questions I could wrap it up in true love and give you my affection Stand where you are, shining star but so many shine each night does that make it right babe I don’t wanna know
