The Dancer

She was in a class of 44 beautiful dancers
And I watched her pirouette around the stars
In her poms
And I must have told her one thousand times
in my mind, that I loved her
I got drunk one night, she was on the steps
she touched my shoulder
Oh oh oh oh

I was young and full of grace
when I stepped into the fire, with my dancer
she had barely come of age
but she was egging me on, all the way down
and I told her as the ship sank
that I loved her
and I told her as we walked off of the plank
I was all hers
Oh oh oh oh

Step 2, 3, 4, jump 2, 3, 4
Step 2, 3, 4, jump 2, 3, 4
Step 2, 3, 4, jump 2, 3, 4
Step 2, 3, 4, and jump
That's good

 

You Were Wrong

Who knows what the day brings?
When the girl on the palace steps sings
I'm sorry the breakdown was mine
I missed all the signs, I can't read your mind
And before you go run off again
And cry to your friends
Would you look through the frost, and see
Here behind my cold eyes, my heart it is wore
My eyelids are sore

And you were wrong
And you were wrong

And so when my song it was sung
I went to the grass, and I sat in the sun
To bask underneath my own dredge
Do I follow my heart, do I have far to go
And I'd lie 'neath the shade of our bones
With the heart of a star,
'Cause I live on my own stone

And you were wrong
And you were wrong

Who knows what the day brings?
When the girl on the palace steps sings

You were wrong
You were wrong
You were wrong

 

Right Road (Wrong Road)

The books that you gave me
They had no pages
No picture book stories
To put inside my song

And the heroes you made me
They had no faces
No chiseled-jaw features
To carve my own on

And there's a right road
And there's a wrong, wrong road
And there's a right road
And there's a wrong, wrong road

So I dropped your book you held so high
Yeah I thought to question this belief
And I know you said you needed time
But I never thought you had the balls to leave

And there's a right road
And there's a wrong, wrong road
And there's a right road
And there's a wrong road, wrong road, wrong road

Yeah

I see your car come tumble down
And I know your future now
I see your car come tumble down
And watch the wheel go spinning round
I see your car come tumble down
I know your future now
I watch the wheel go spinning round
And I watch your future going down

And there's a right road
And there's a wrong, wrong road
And there's a right road
And there's a wrong road, wrong road, wrong road

Right road
Wrong road, wrong road
Right road
Wrong road, wrong road, wrong road

And I was a futureless fish 'til you came along
Now I'm carved by your crown and loved by your song
And I feel that it's right but I know that it's wrong
Love and love and kind of respect for you I have for you is long gone

Right road
Wrong road, wrong road
Right road
Wrong road, wrong road, wrong road
Hey hey hey hey

I fell in love with a sweetheart song
And you can't deny what is done is done
But you never never must have missed the fall

 

Before You Go

You ain't got far to go
Come down for the fiesta
Come on fiesta, love me long

She's incognito
She lives in the parade by the sea, near the sand
And I wish she'd come take my hand
And we'll blow

Baby there's one thing you should know
Before you go
Baby there is one thing you should know
I can't stop loving you
I can't stop loving you
I can't stop loving you

I'm saved now, I'm saved by your hand
And all the logic and language and loss
I'd throw it all away for the dancer
She's running upstairs now and she's made till the end

But you see she's incognito
I've seen a lot of dares and they come and they
Stay and they go
Ah but, no, no, no she said no, she said
Turn on your record player

And baby there's one thing you should know
Before you go
Baby there is one thing you should know
I can't stop loving you
I can't stop loving you
I can't stop loving you

But how far will it go
And baby there's one thing you should know
Before you go
Baby there is one thing you should know
Before you go
Baby there is one thing you should know
I can't stop loving you
I can't stop loving you
I can't stop loving you

 

The Waltz

You said you kissed the foot of the saviour
Felt his confession in your sleep
Well I'll be your saviour, if you'll do me that favour
And if you want I'll bathe you
In the blood of the lamb

I love you, but you're too young to know
And even if I am thinking of you
I won't let it show

When you're like this
You could be thinking anything at all
When you're like this
I might as well be talking to the
I might as well be talking to the wall
I love you, but you're too young to know
And even if I am thinking of you
You'll never know

There's no stone, stick, bone, name, thrown
Swear to god

But you, but you, but you, but you
But you, but you, but you, but you
But you, but you, but you, but you
Amalama ah but you, amalama ama ramble on
I love you, but you're too young to know
And even if I am thinking of you
You'll never ever ever ever ever ever know
It's too late for you to go

There's no star, crown, rhyme, dice, race for this time will long I go since you true

 

Downhill From Here

Let go of the wheel
And forget how to steer
It's all downhill from here
Forget all the words that you heard
And shuffle them till they're unclear
It's all downhill from here

And if I held the key to all time
Then all of your time would be mine

Pick up something to throw
And see how far it'll go
And forget all you know
We'll throw our thoughts over the pier
And send them all into the mire
And wait there, until they all disappear

And if I held the secret to faith
Then all of your faith would be mine

So let go of the wheel
And forget how to steer
It's all downhill from here

And when you're flying past
In your carriage of glass
Will you get time to ask
Or will it all be too fast
And when you're getting cold in your
In your carriage of gold
Will you hear all I told
Or be too precious to hold

And if I held the door to all love
Then all of your love would be mine
And if I held the whole world in my hands
Then all of your world would be mine
So let go of the wheel
And forget how to steer
It's all downhill from here
It's all downhill from here
It's all downhill from here

 

Masquerade

Am I making sense?
Am I making time?
Well I, I put it by
And I can't wait to try
Masquerade!
The world's a stage
A hundred faces for you to play

Well it's hard to believe
I'm spinning all this way
I'm spinning all this way
Round and round in my head
Roll over again let your heart do the spin
And listen to nothing I have to say
What did my momma say
I was always making songs for her

Over my song, over these days gone on
You come to a special place
Where you can go in straight
Masquerade!
You send me down your massive chain
You send me down your massive chain
And you base the frame
What did my momma say
I was always making songs for her
There's a better way

 

Picture Of Love

I had to strain to understand
Your swimming in the water tower
Running blood down from my hand
She said are you sure that you live
The way you want to live
I had to hope to take her hand
I was hanging on the edge for hours
Dreaming of some starry strand
And I was dreaming about your face
Running back my way

We were the picture of love
And love doesn't think of tomorrow
And long live romance from above
And your fire of love

I built a fire into the sky
A little something to remember you by
And panic broke and I lost my faith
And I was mistaken for you
On the palace stool

We were the picture of love
And love doesn't think of tomorrow
And long live romance from above
And your fire of love
We were the picture of love
And love doesn't think of forever
And long live your stars from above
And your fire of love

I had to strain to understand
Your swimming in the water tower

We were the picture of love
And love doesn't think of tomorrow
And long live romance from above
And your fire of love
We were the picture of love
And love doesn't think past forever
And long live you stars from above
And your fire of love
And your fire of love

And she said are you sure that you live
The way you want to live

 

Martha

Hey Martha why are you crying?
Is it for the same reason you were crying yesterday?
Don't you know a bad situation when you see one?
Get out, just leave baby, go today
Well I'm just waiting for you to open me up
Just hoping you'll drink from my broken cup
I'm just a lonely boy who knows
Nothing else but you, my Martha

Hey Martha what are you saying?
You say you got to figure it all out for yourself
Well time won't wait, and you're not special
Don't you think it's time you took me down off your shelf
I won't claim to be the saviour of your soul, no
I wouldn't want that kind of thing at all
I'm just a lonely boy who knows
Nothing else but you, my Martha

Hey my my my Martha
Hey my my my Martha

Hey Martha the boat is leaving
Pretty soon they are going to be
Calling the last of us on
Please don't please don't make me leave without you
Don't make this a very sad and unhappy song
You know I tried to say well it doesn't matter
I tried to throw away everything I thought was true
I'm just a lonely boy who knows
Nothing else but you my Martha

Hey my my my Martha
Hey my my my Martha
Hey my my my Martha

 

Another Love Song

I looked into her face again
The penny dropped and I stuck out my can
She was holding her ballerina case
I was stuck in the back of the place
I turned around and she laughed in my face
She took me up to her higher wall
She took me up there just to let me fall and I'll sing you

Another love song
Another love song

I looked into her face once more
Sit you back so I can tell you a little story
You look better from behind
You look better from behind
You look better from outside
She took me up into her flying clay
She took me up there just to blow away and I'll sing you

Another love song
Another love song

I begged her, begged her, begged her please
You skinny fatcher I could take your little stamen
I only asked you for the time
I only asked you for the time
I only asked you for a sign
She took me up into the bell I go
She took me up there just to let it blow and I'll sing you

Another love song
Another love song
Another love song

 

Telegraph Poles

There was a head on collision
At my front door today
One man died
And another man tried to stop it

There was a head on collision
At my front door today
One man died
And another man tried to stop it

I was hanging on the pole
When I saw what happened
I went to tell my ma,
But she was sleeping

I was hanging on the pole
When I saw what happened
Don't take that man away
It was not his fault

Telegraph poles are good for climbing
But don't touch the live wire
At the tip of the barrel
Telegraph poles are good for climbing
But don't touch the live wire
At the tip of the barrel

You know this means everything to me
But I'm not sure if I'll be here tomorrow
You know this means everything to me
But I'm not sure if I'll be here tomorrow

Telegraph poles are good for climbing
But don't touch the live wire
At the tip of the barrel
Telegraph poles are good for climbing
But don't touch the live wire
At the tip of the barrel

There was a head on collision
At my front door today
One man died
And another man tried to stop it

 

Live Forever

I run my hands along the rail
Like I'm banging on a dead nail
I pull your mask around your face
And pack your castle in a big case
You're not a sage
But you know you're always on a big stage

I'm gonna live forever
I'm gonna live forever
I'm gonna live forever
I'm gonna live forever

He was just a guy with his plan
Pitchin' rubbers with his rain-tan
I took a date from the two day dance
I kissed my girl in pretty blue pants
Got to shake your hand
You know I've always been a big fan

I'm gonna live forever
I'm gonna live forever
I'm gonna live forever
I'm gonna live forever

On holiday when she was away, I was always
Never gonna, ever gonna
I'm gonna live forever
I'm gonna live forever
I'm gonna live forever
I'm gonna live forever

Stop right there, I got a dare
You pull your plan and dig your heal
Spin your castle on a bent wheel
Pull your mask around your face
And throw your hands into a big space
I'm not just gonna stand like I'm
Waiting for the big hand
I'm gonna live forever!
