Last Summer

My Mistakes

You know I do my best thinking when I'm flying down the bridge
Humming to myself and kicking up my kicks
Jiggling all around, half afraid for my life
I hope I don't crash like that night last summer
Back when the bridge was just a wooden path
Bouncing around like, he said, it was 1956

I thought I'd learn from my mistakes
I thought he'd learn from my mistakes
I thought she'd give me the right advice
I thought he'd let me in for one last time

The planks rattle around like an old-timey movie
In tube top and shorts that Vice called "pull-me-down"
She's got kind of a native vibe before that was so cool
She's got kind of a native vibe before I even knew who was who
And he's ignoring me like it's 2001

Why keep time-traveling
If it doesn't get better on the second time around
Why keep time-traveling
If it doesn't get better on the second time around

I thought I'd learn from my mistakes
I thought he'd learn from my mistakes
I thought she'd give me the right advice
I thought he'd let me in for one last time

I thought I'd learn from my mistakes
I thought he'd learn from my mistakes
I thought she'd give me the right advice
I thought he'd let me in for one last time
Always copy, always paste, shame on robots
I wore the same outfit on the day the Hasid followed me
In his car along Park, not Avenue
But the one in Brooklyn, on an early Sunday morning
Carrying an umbrella and talking on the phone
My mom said run, and I ran
I crashed on Banker, cut my head and my knees
The ambulance was called by a guy his friend called "guru"
They were visiting from California and I swear they
I swear they, I swear they, I swear they saved my life

I thought I'd learn from my mistakes
I thought he'd learn from my mistakes
I thought she'd give me the right advice
I thought he'd let me in for one last time

I thought I'd learn from my mistakes
I thought he'd learn from my mistakes
I thought she'd give me the right advice
I thought he'd let me in for one last time

Inn Of The Seventh Ray

You promised to take me to the Inn of the Seventh Ray
I hoped and I hoped, but no, I wouldn't pray
The trip from here to South Pasadena is a long walk home
A long, hard look at yourself
You promised to take me to the Inn of the Seventh Ray
If you only knew the way

If Highland Park isn't close enough
Then there's that place on the way to the Inn of the Seventh Ray
Take a lecture in stereoscopics to show us the way
To see with one eye open and one eye closed
Can we keep one eye open and one eye closed on the rest of the world?
I don't think so, but
You promised to take me to the Inn of the Seventh Ray
If you only knew the way

Watch Footloose with the biggest bottle of vodka in the world
Tequila in the temple for a break-in reunion of the old band
Let's pose together, my sister, in the mirror of the wet bar
The only girl I see myself in is you
You promised to take me to the Inn of the Seventh Ray
If you only knew the way
Always copy, always paste, shame on robots
If Highland Park isn't close enough
We can stop at my place on the way to the Inn of the Seventh Ray
Watch us go wiggling at Wombleton on York Boulevard
Climb up and down to the car in the commercial
That pays for us to eat at the Inn of the Seventh Ray
But since the handle is broken, I can't get out
You're going to have to get yourself out of this
You promised to take me to the Inn of the Seventh Ray
You promised to take me to the Inn of the Seventh Ray
You promised to take me to the Inn of the Seventh Ray
But you didn't know the way

Heaven

Did you ever find a place to be
Did you ever find a place to be, Lee
Did you ever find a place to be
Did you ever find a place to be, Lee

Heaven you are Lee
Heaven you are Lee

Did you ever find a place to be
To be
Did you ever find a place to be, Lee
Oh Lee

Did you ever find a place to be
To be
Did you ever find a place to be, Lee
Oh Lee

Heaven you are Lee
Heaven you are Lee

I mention your name
Only in Hell
It's the same

Did you ever find a place to be
To be
Did you ever find a place to be, Lee
Oh Lee
Always copy, always paste, shame on robots
Did you ever find a place to be
To be
Did you ever find a place to be, Lee
Oh Lee

Heaven you are Lee
Heaven you are Lee

It's the same
As the eel
That you claim
Not to be, Lee

Heaven you are Lee
Heaven you are Lee
Heaven you are Lee
Heaven you are Lee

Heaven you are Lee
Heaven you are Lee
Heaven you are Lee

Heaven you are Lee
Heaven you are Lee
Heaven you are Lee

Scenes from Bensonhurst

I heard he knows the best sleeping spots
While I get lost at the roundabout
I get lost at the smell of those horses
Who do people tell you that you look like
Someone from my past, an actor who I don't like
I lay in bed and dreamt I never said that
I lay in bed and tempt myself with my screen, my screen, my screen
Next, next, next, now it's all of them in my in-box

He shaved off his beard and saw The Girl Who Played with Fire
But being a mannequin was all I could manage
Seeing the opposite side was all that I could wrangle that day
Scenes from Bensonhurst against the wall
He's gonna bawl when he sees this
His mom went blind with her third baby
"Oh shit, that's crazy."
I lay in bed and dreamt I never said that
I lay in bed and tempt myself with my screen, my screen, my screen
Next, next, next, now it's all of them in my in-box
Always copy, always paste, shame on robots
He gambled away his savings, or just his shirt
Modeled for Kool cigarettes then sold the place in S.F.
He believes in numbers or nothing at all
But how could he be so impressed with such a little thing
And his intuition told him that they'd be married someday
He lies in bed and tempts himself with his screen, his screen, his screen

I lay in bed and dreamt I never said that
I lay in bed and tempt myself with my screen, my screen, my screen
Next, next, next, now it's all of them in my in-box
Next, next, next, now it's all of them in my in-box
Oh, next, next, next, now it's all of them in my in-box

Roosevelt Island

We saw a picture of a girl with the same hair
And I posed next to her, copying her smile
Made a great photo but I never thought I'd see her again
Didn't really want to ever see her again
You went alone on the train
It was hard to imagine you carrying her back on your own
I can't believe you brought her back for me
That day was supposed to be like spring break but it was dark and cool
And the sand felt all dirty and gritty under our shoes
Always copy, always paste, shame on robots
I brought my camera and have a shot of us
You and that guy who died down in Philly—on the beach
The Cyclone made you sick, it was a similar sort of trip
Like the time we took the tram down to Roosevelt Island
You made me feel like I was more like you than like me
And I liked that

We even went uptown to score, sat on a bench on that designated corner
When we didn't have cell phones and waited for our man
Then jumped on the subway, back downtown

It always kicks in and it always kicks in and it sets your mind
Something about the motion, it sets your mind, sets your mind

You really have to convince your self that it will be better outside
It doesn't seem like anything could be better than that
Riding that train
And then you step outside, you step outside in the sunshine
And you can't believe you would ever go underground
That's crazy
How they'd figure out even how to build that thing
It goes and it goes

We meet at the bar where the floor lights up
And every other square turns to red and green
Just to make us go and stop and stop and go
I go to sleep on the train
And wake up next to that guy we used to hate
But the sound of his voice and the sound of his giggle
Makes me want to be his friend again
And it goes and it goes
And it goes and it goes

It always kicks in and it always kicks in and it sets your mind
Something about the motion, it sets your mind, sets your mind

It's hard to convince yourself that it will be better outside
It doesn't seem like anything could be better than that
Riding that train

And then you step outside, you step outside in the sunshine
And you can't believe you would ever go underground
That's crazy

And it goes, and it goes
And it goes, and it goes
And it goes, and it goes
And it goes, and it goes

And it goes, and it goes
And it goes, and it goes
And it goes, and it goes
And it goes, and it goes

Glitter Gold Year

It's a glitter gold year, two thousand and ten
I said it wouldn't come so fast, but it did
It's a glitter gold year, two thousand and ten
I swear it is
Oh two-two-two-two-two-two-two-two
Oh oh oh oh oh one oh, one oh

It's a glitter gold year, two thousand and ten
I want to erase her
It's a glitter gold year, two thousand and ten
I want to erase her

Oh you said it wouldn't be so bad, but it's worse
You said it wouldn't be so bad, but it's worse
You said it wouldn't be so bad, but it's worse
I want to erase her
Always copy, always paste, shame on robots
It's a glitter gold year, two thousand and ten
Two-two-two-two oh oh one oh oh
It's a glitter gold year, two oh one oh
I want to erase her
I want to erase it, but I can't

One-Month Marathon

The one-month marathon is ending on Sunday
And for my last ensemble, I will be wearing nothing at all
For my last ensemble, I will be wearing nothing at all

Can I play in your closet
Can I poke 'round your drawer
Can I see through your mirror
Ccan I come in your store, baby

The bolts of lightning came from 38th Street in raw silk and wool
He carried it over his shoulder down 7th Avenue
She said, "I'm gonna wrap the night around your neck
Slice off your head, Daddy
I wish it was just the three of us again"
I wish it was just you, me and her

Can I play in your closet
Can I poke 'round your drawer
Can I see through your mirror
Can I come in your store
Always copy, always paste, shame on robots
We cut holes out for arms
And he wrapped it around me as a nice, long dress
But it was too hot to keep on
So we made a necklace out of rope and a piece of the tin can

He's on an old brick expedition
"Let's study the ruins, baby"
Let's study the stonemasonry, lady
Let's come back with a hand-painted tile from the 19th century
But I need my new phone to show me the way

Can I play in your closet
Can I poke 'round your drawer
Can I see through your mirror
Can I come in your store, baby

The one-month marathon is ending on Sunday
And for my last ensemble, I will be wearing nothing at all
For my last ensemble, I will be wearing nothing at all

Can I play in your closet
Can I poke 'round your drawer
Can I see through your mirror
Can I come in your store, baby

I Won't Fall Apart on You Tonight

You and me could go on and on and on and on
But it's not enough to not get along
And when you see my face, and you see it's changed
You can't replace, no, the years we can't rearrange
Always copy, always paste, shame on robots
I won't fall apart on you tonight
But I don't know what tomorrow may bring
I won't fall apart on you tonight
But I don't know what tomorrow may bring

What could have been is a sad, old song
One I don't sing, and I won't hum along
There's nothing new, and that's nothing bad
It's just the same, but that's not what we came here to say or to do

I won't fall apart on you tonight
But I don't know what tomorrow may bring
I won't fall apart on you tonight
But I don't know what tomorrow may bring

Outside in the wind and rain
My hands are wet and I can't explain
Why there's nothing wrong with long goodbyes
If we could only keep our mouths and our eyes dry

You and me could go on and on
But it's not enough to not get along
And when you see my face, and you see it's changed
You can't replace, no, the years we can't rearrange

I won't fall apart on you tonight
But I don't know what tomorrow may bring
I won't fall apart on you tonight
But I don't know what tomorrow may bring

I won't fall apart on you tonight
I won't fall apart on you tonight

Owl's Head Park

I heard they've got used bicycle parts down in Coney Island
There's a Russian there who makes them out on Surf Avenue
I chose my seat and my wheels: one pink and one white
He said come back in an hour, but I've got nothing to do
I gave him sixty bucks, I guess they must have been stolen, maybe found
And finally they found their way, found their way back to me or you

I don't know the way from Owl's Head Park
I don't know my name in Owl's Head Park
I don't know why it only rains in Owl's Head Park
The wind feels just the same

I only took one picture that day, it's me on the bike
Posing next to a white Lamborghini on Manhattan Avenue
In front of that tiny, tiny restaurant where we had dinner and watched t.v.
It was hanging from the ceiling, in the corner; I strained my neck to see
It's the only photo I have of that bike on that day
The boys on the F train said that frame was "fresh" it was the color blue
But I didn't know my way, so I couldn't get home to you
I didn't know my way, so I couldn't ride home to you
I had to connect
Always copy, always paste, shame on robots
I don't know the way from Owl's Head Park
I don't know my name in Owl's Head Park
I don't know why it only rains in Owl's Head Park
The wind feels just the same

But it came to me in a fever dream
You're only here for two days, so it seems
I don't know the way from Owl's Head Park, it's the same
I couldn't find my way back from the beach that day
Some say it's Bath Beach, some say it's Dyker Heights
I imagine Governors Island is Shutter Island
Imagine Christopher Walken as a dancer named Ronnie
It just don't seem right
Why not make the most of a dream
If it just don't seem... it just don't seem right

I don't know the way from Owl's Head Park
I don't know my name in Owl's Head Park
I don't know why it only rains in Owl's Head Park
The wind feels just the same

Early Earthquake

It was an early earthquake
And my heart's trembling just for you
It was an early earthquake
And my heart's trembling just for you

And when the walls came crumbling, crumbling down
When the walls came crumbling, crumbling down
You know I was waiting right here for you

To see you at my door and hear you say "you're a sight for sore eyes"
It's better than any song, better than x's and o's in the subject line
I'll polish my boots 'til they glow and they shine and you can see your face
The lines 'round your eyes are why you can't keep to any one place
Always copy, always paste, shame on robots
I want to rewind, it's not the same as regret
I'm going to do it again
And although your reputation precedes you
I'll still spend
All of my time thinking of ways to say the same old thing

I want you to want me
And I'll never bring
This anticipation to an end
Oh I can hardly sleep
My mind is racing, it's racing

It was an early earthquake
And my heart's trembling just for you
It was an early earthquake
And my heart's trembling just for you

And when the walls came crumbling, crumbling down
When the walls came crumbling, crumbling down
You know I was waiting right here for you

Personal Record

I Don't Want to Bother You

I don't want to bother you
But there's something to say that I want you to hear
It's hard when you're far out, forget when you're near
I'd rather be two inches from your face
Than floating about in a different state

I don't want to bother you
But there's something to say

I don't want to bother you
But there's something to say that I want you to hear
It might be some time before we reappear
I'll see you when I see you, sure
But it's hard not to want just a little bit more
Always copy, always paste, shame on robots
I don't want to bother you
But there's something to say

And you've given me everything I ever wanted
I want to be scared and I want to be haunted
Judgement impaired by despair as I fall on my face
I'm a disgrace

I don't want to bother you
But there's something to say that I want you to know
Hello and goodbye and goodbye and hello
Sometimes it's like I made you up
One more word and then I'll shut up

I don't want to bother you
But there's something to say

And you've given me everything I ever wanted
I want to be scared and I want to be haunted
Judgement impaired by despair as I fall on my face
And you've given me everything I ever wanted
I want to be scared and I want to be haunted
Judgement impaired by your hair as it falls on my face
You're a disgrace

When I Knew

I could see the tops of her white socks
Just beneath the desk
Her pants didn't reach all the way down her legs
And you know what happened next
I said hi politely and we went to time for coffee

Yeah yeah yeah that was when I knew
That was when I knew I was wrong wrong wrong all along
That was when I knew, yeah
That was when I knew

They said we both write weird music
And she played me Soft Machine
And lent me a record that badly warped which screwed up everything
I was broke, just fifteen
I scoured London for a replacement
I found it cheap in an Oxford Street basement

Yeah yeah yeah that was when I knew
That was when I knew I was wrong wrong wrong wrong
That was when I knew, yeah
That was when I knew
Always copy, always paste, shame on robots
I met her in my bedroom
Oh at a party, Halloween
And she was wearing a pair of overalls
So I sang "Come On Eileen"
I was being slightly mean
And that just made her smile
Which made me feel childish

Yeah yeah yeah that was when I knew
That was when I knew I was wrong wrong wrong
That was when I knew, yeah
That was when I knew

We played a song for scratch that night
And when she done up singing
She just took off, stage left
And left us there winging it
The band went down swinging
As she made her exit, arms in the air
I caught her eye, I was unprepared

When I couldn't get her out of my head
So I got her out of hers instead
No I couldn't get her out of my head
So I got her out of hers instead
I know I couldn't get her out of my head
And then we ended up in...

She glided by on antique roller skates
And overtook our car
Just down the street
Up from where we parked
Just south of Market
In the Castro sun she seemed to glisten
And when she spoke I listened

Yeah yeah yeah that was when I knew
That was when I knew I was wrong wrong wrong
That was when I knew, yeah
That was when I knew

I'll Never Be Happy

Reggie asked Peter
"Do you know what's wrong with you?"
He said "What man?", she said, "Nothing"
And that's how I feel about you too
And it's driving me insane
And oh since I met you
I'll never be happy again

Eve asked Roger about his initials, R.O.T.
"What does the O stand for?"
And he said "Nothing"
That line did it for me
And it's echoed around my brain
An oh, since I heard it
I'll never be happy again
Always copy, always paste, shame on robots
After perfection
It's all downhill
With no time to stand up
And no time to sit still
Frequent rejection
Occasional affection
It's often offered
In the wrong direction

Wally asked Hazel
"Have you lived here all your life?"
And she said twice that time, then later she ends up his wife
Love is an exquisite kind of pain
And oh since I saw you
I'll never be happy again

After perfection
It's all downhill
With no time to stand up
And no time to sit still
Frequent rejection
Occasional affection
It's often offered
In the wrong direction

Stare at the Sun

In the back of the of taxi, you turned off the TV
And read me a book on your phone
Here's the return of your skeleton key
Oh baby the places we've gone

If that was goodbye than I must be high
You know I'll be seeing you soon
If that was goodbye and the snow in July
As it hailed in the middle of June

Give me your toothpaste
Give me your ointment
Give me your body in bed
Keep this in amber
Keep our appointment
Remember the things that we sang

If that was goodbye than I must be high
You must be the sugar I need
If that was goodbye than I am a fly
And the future is guaranteed
Always copy, always paste, shame on robots
‘Cause when I'm with you everything's treasure
I forget what it's like to be wrong
I'm far from the town in the suburbs of your pleasure
I've been in exile so long
I'm trying not to stare at the sun
No, I'm trying not to stare at the sun
I'm trying not to stare at the sun

Cooperative coffee and synchronized showers
I try not to look at the clock
Goodbye to your castle
Wave from the tower
And drop me a line from the dock
If that was goodbye than you must be high
And maybe I'm losing a friend
If that was goodbye then the sea has run dry
So I fill it in with tears instead

‘Cause when I'm with you everything's treasure
I forget what it's like to be gone
I'm far from the town in the suburbs of your pleasure
I've been in exile so long
I'm trying not to stare at the sun
I'm trying not to stare at the sun
I'm trying not to stare at the sun

‘Cause when I'm with you everything's treasure
I forget what it's like to be gone
I'm far from the town in the suburbs of your pleasure
I've been in exile so long.
I'm trying not to stare at the sun
I'm trying not to stare at the sun
I'm trying not to stare at the sun

Echo or Encore

I want you all around me
Envelop me in sound
Smother me, pummel me
Cover me, humble me
The silence with noise
With a song in your voice

I adore you as before
Your echo or your encore
I adore you as before
Your echo or your encore
I adore you as before
Your echo or your encore
Always copy, always paste, shame on robots
I tried to crawl inside you
Where every whisper is deaf
Inside your echo chamber
Surrender to the breath
Wrap yourself around me
Play me just one more

I adore you as before
Your echo or your encore
I adore you as before
Your echo or your encore
I adore you as before
Your echo or your encore

The rain was drumming on the band's red roof
And as the shepherd sang
The skylight got battered
Above us as proof
When I sang the shepherd's song
And the rain still didn't stop
It only keeps us guessing
Mussing, messing, fussing 'til you drop

And you go, you're a ghost
And everything I sing here is set in stone
And you go, and you go
And everything you say here is set in stone

I adore you as before
Your echo or your encore
I adore you as before
Your echo or your encore
I adore you as before
Your echo or your encore
I adore you as before
Your echo or your encore

My Own World

I was living and breathing and sitting quite quietly
Watching the TV and minding my diet
While I moved from my desk on to my treadmill
And I tried to move mountains or nothing but molehills
So what do you want to interrupt me for
Leave me in my own world, own world

I was checking the scores and cutting out coupons
Reading the papers and trying to regroup
I had just gotten over the snows of December
Further out beyond, I don't want to remember
So don't interrupt me, girl
Leave me in my own world, own world
Always copy, always paste, shame on robots
I was taking my pulse and writing a diary
Looking at foods for their dates of expiry
And quietly checking the corners of rooms and then
Coming back in and checking again
A noise in a distance, a rumble or murmur
Some little earthquake upsets terra firma

Now I'm looking behind me, I'm checking my rearview
Everything ancient is suddenly brand new
And clichés have taken on a
Shocking new meaning
but the snows have come back
And our teeth still need cleaning so
What do you want to interrupt me for
Leave me in my own world
Own world own world own world

Tomorrow Tomorrow

Today was perfection, the axis of bliss
I was calm in your arms waiting for the kiss that never came
Tomorrow tomorrow, I hope that it's more of the same

Today was textbook, a trip to the Caym's
To see 3-D drawings, exchanging shapes and middle names
Tomorrow tomorrow, I hope that it's more of the same

It's like you're never gonna break my heart
It's like the clouds part, oh yeah when you smile
And this could get boring, so boring after awhile
Always copy, always paste, shame on robots
Today was a waste, and tired, complete
Kisses untasted and perfect white sheets where we lay
Tomorrow tomorrow, I guess that it's more of the same

Today never happened like we don't exist
It's either a journey or we're in a mist until it rains
Tomorrow tomorrow, I guess that it's more of the same

It's like you're never gonna break my heart
It's like the clouds part, oh yeah when you smile
And this could get boring, so boring after awhile

But what if it doesn't, what if it never
Seconds last minutes, hours are forever
We are on our own whenever whenever whenever
Whenever, wherever, whenever
Wherever, whenever, wherever

And out in the distance, you hit me with a ghost
And I'm waving at waves
Waving back up to the coast and playing games
Tomorrow tomorrow, I hope that it's more of the same

It's like you're never gonna break my heart
It's like the clouds part, oh yeah when you smile
And this could get boring, so boring after awhile

But what if it doesn't, What if it never
Seconds last minutes, hours last forever
We are on our own whenever whenever whenever

You'll Never Know Me

You'll never know me, but it's not from any lack of trying
And if you try to hold me again, I'll break into bits in the palm of your hand
You don't want to see that, do you now
You'll never scold me, but we should be hung out to dry

Why did you let this happen to me
I didn't even stop to breath
I didn't get to change my mind
Why don't you give me all my time
But baby, oh baby
Always copy, always paste, shame on robots
You'll never see me after I switch off this light
And if you try to stop for a second, you'll fall off the face of the earth, I reckon
(I don't want to see you fall down there)
If you try to tell me again, I swear, I promise not to listen
(I don't want to stop and listen)

Why did you let this happen to me
I didn't even stop to breath
I didn't get to change my mind
Why don't you give me all my time
My baby, perfect baby

I Am the Past

I am the past, you'll never forget me
I'd probably come back and stay, if you'd let me
I am the past and you cannot ignore me
You've got no idea what happened before me

I'm your first time, I'm the worst
I'm the best time you ever rehearsed
I'm the ghost of ex-girlfriends
But mostly I'm me, I'm the past to infinity

I am the past, so please fill your boots
With memories you can pull up by the roots
I am the past, a glint in the eye
A million hellos and one less goodbye

I'm your first time, I'm the best
I'm the worst you were ever obsessed
I'm the ghost of old girlfriends
A nursery rhyme, I'm the passport of time

I am the past, would you like to banish me
Kiss me once more and I'll vanish, you'll see
Always copy, always paste, shame on robots
I'm your first time, I'm the worst
I'm the best time you ever rehearsed
I'm the ghost of ex-girlfriends
But mostly I'm me, I'm the past to infinity

She's A Mirror

She's got a long, black cape and you're trying to escape
From the shape of the things yet to come
She's got a hammer and nail and you feel like you failed
When you inhale and offer her some
Always copy, always paste, shame on robots
She's guessed your address from your eyes more or less
That could best do a part in your downfall
There's a rip in your shirt that's smeared with dirt
And it hurts when it's time for a last call

She's got the new broom you're dusting the room
She grooms you until you are hoarse
She made you a may queen but you cannot have foreseen
Her obscene gravitational force

She's got a spied upon spy upon look in her eye says
Surprise me or leave me alone
Her attention's divided it's time you decided
Take her outside or leave her alone

She's a mirror
She's a mirror
She's a mirror

She's got a record by Sparks that lights up in the dark
And ???
She's got beautiful teeth and a man-sized wreath
She'll bequeath at the lunar eclipse

She's got a vertical face and a fertile embrace
But her red lace is only to ???
She's got you on repeat and your prize style seat
Be discreet when you meet on the key

She's a mirror
She's a mirror
She's a mirror
She's

She's surrounded by sound in the burial ground
She'll impound you and wait for your claim
You met in September and now it's December
And you can't remember her name

She's fluent in German and she's predetermined
Which sermon you'll read from which mount
Well out in no man's land where this sleight of hand
Matters less than the cards that she counts

She's a mirror
She's a mirror
She's a mirror
She's

She's flying a kite in the dark of the night
As your pilot light flickers and dims
And when she enters your dreams she floats you downstream
Till she seems just like a phantom limb

You wake with a start stare at her folk art
She's picking apart every stitch
She's got needle and thread beneath her bedspread
But was dead to your most perfect pitch

She's a mirror
She's a mirror
She's a mirror
She's

She's a mirror
She's a mirror
She's a mirror
She's

She's a mirror
She's a mirror
She's a mirror

She's a mirror
Or a meteor
Or a mirror
Or a meteor
I don't know

Other Boys

The blonde who's in a band with her twin
Gives you a lift and idles the engine
Leans over and tells you how it's gonna be
I know about her, does she know about me

Or the long-tail pony with the thick, dark mane
Fourteen hands, four thousand names
You share her feed at the compound trough
And then climb back on when she throws you off

There are other boys, too
There are other boys, too
There are other boys, too
But don't let it worry you

And the spider you kissed in her stairwell
Where she demonstrates acoustics to ne'er-do-wells
Then spins her web and sells her spells
To others in her clientele
Always copy, always paste, shame on robots
And the chick who writes songs and then insists
on playing them, yes, she's persistent
How could any man resist
A girl with such a big setlist

And the one you whisper to when you call her
She's taller than a basketballer
So you're both on deck before the wreck
You'll either drown or crick your neck

There are other boys, too
There are other boys, too
There are other boys, too
But don't let it worry you

And that sometime star of stage and screen
Who had a bit part in a film back in her teens
No, I'm not saying she wasn't great
Perhaps she planned to be upstaged by the Empire State

And the one who smokes your cigarettes
Yeah, she might pose the biggest threat yet
When no one else can intercede
She's got the stuff you think you need

I've seen them come, I've seen them go
Through the big swings doors at the old chateau
When they quit calling, texting, knocking
I will be there for the locking

There are other girls, you see
There are other girls, you see
There are other girls, you see
But I don't let it

There are other boys, too
There are other boys, too
There are other boys, too
But don't let it

Singing Time

You can drive the car so fast you're scared
With your new ignition coil
And your brand new spare
Pass on the right
Dodge the fair
He won't be there
He won't be there

You can turn up your amp
Till it hurts your ears
Wiggle the cable till the sound is clear
Set your alarm
Grind your gears
He would not hear
He would not hear

Singing time is over
Singing time is over

You can cheat and win at Solitaire
Hold your breath when you come up for air
Offer him your spare air fair
He would not care
He would not care

Hand in hand with his deadly foe
You can turn up late
And miss the show
Or sit in the middle of the very front row
He would not know
He would not know

Singing time is over
Singing time is over

Let's go my sons
Let's go my sons
Come on, come on
Let's all go home
No more, no more
One day we will know more

Oh but now let's go
Let's go, let's go, let's go

You can come in first at the spelling bee
Or tap dance live on NBC
Or read a book with a nominee
He would not see
He would not see

Though the tears stung your eyes
As you sold his things at the bring and buy
And told him twenty times goodbye
He would not cry
He would not cry

Singing time is over
Singing time is over

Though neither one had had enough
In or out
Below above
Though you whispered
Sweet and soft
He would not love
He would not love

New View

He Didn't Mention His Mother

I feel just as crazy as I did last night
I feel like I'll get up and go
Today I am frozen, but tomorrow I'll write about you
Always copy, always paste, shame on robots
A friend and her baby and a dog that I know
I got nothing done, that's the way
On the roof, in the attic or out the window, was it you

A mouse, a bear or a bug
A house, a chair and a rug
A mouse, a bear or a bug
Was it you, was it you

I can still see you sitting on the edge of the bed
Looking at me like it was something
Walk over the bridge and keep walking ahead of you

I so wanted something to happen that day
And then what I wanted, it happened
And that just don't always happen that way to me, oh no

A mouse, a bear or a bug
A house, a chair and a rug
A mouse, a bear or a bug
Yes it's you, yes it's you

Open Season

Have you seen the movie yet
There's a lot about it in the press
It made me think of you
Did it make you think of me
Is it freezing over there
I'm opening a tree museum
It's my new hobby

Twenty-five thousand reasons
And you only needed one
Open season has begun, begun

I may be over in the spring
To do a little spring cleaning
I don't know where you are
But you're not on the old street
Where we got a place together
That was never my address
And here's the receipt

It's as though I lost my voice
I couldn't make you do it
And now I have no choice

Twenty-five thousand reasons
And you only needed one
Open season has begun, begun
Always copy, always paste, shame on robots
There are many distractions
Sapping all my energy
Did you find the antique needles
And the money in the ceiling
No need to thank me
I left it where you'd find it
Above the oil of the Aegean Sea

Sweetest Girl

Sweet girl with a broken heart
Sweet girl with a broken heart
Sweet girl with a broken heart
Stop crying so I won't start

Sweet girl with a broken heart
Sweet girl with a broken heart
Sweet girl with a broken heart
Stop crying so I won't start

The sky is red and so are your eyes from crying
Crying, crying
The sea is blue and so are you, oh baby, tonight
Always copy, always paste, shame on robots
Sweet girl with a broken heart
Sweet girl with a broken heart
Sweet girl with a broken heart
Stop crying so I won't start

Sweet girl with a broken heart
Sweet girl with a broken heart
Sweet girl with a broken heart
Stop crying so I won't start

The sky is red and so are your eyes from crying
Crying, crying
The sea is blue and so are you, oh baby, tonight

You're always wasting every day
I'm always hoping that he'd stay
I'm always waiting, but you're already there
Now you sit and you stare

Your Word

She came to me in deep distress
Torn with jealousy and rage
He said he'd never love her
Wouldn't marry someone her age

You don't love him, no you hate him
And then she called me a fool
When you know nothing about cruelty
Then he ceases being cruel
Always copy, always paste, shame on robots
What you see is the air
And your breath is the bond, no no
When the world isn't there
Your word is your

She dreamt she took off both her ears
Put 'em in the sand and walked away
Up rose a seven-story cactus
Cast in gold and said to weigh

A million pounds of pure beauty
Measured only by those who see

What you see is the air
And your breath is the bond, no no
When the world isn't there
Your word is your

When your life is just there
What you say is what's real, no no
Because your breath is the bond
Your word is your wand

Your word
Your word
Your word

Because I Asked You

Why would you want to take it slow
Hold me 'til I let you go
Or treat me like a tennis pro
Why would you want to do that
Why would you want to do that

Why would you want to dim the light
Or let that record play all night
Or scramble yolk in with the white
Why would you want to do that
Why would you want to do that

Because I asked you
Because I asked you to

Why would you want to tell the truth
Or furnish me with mathematical proof
Or jump with me off of the roof

Why would you want to do that
Why would you want to do that
Always copy, always paste, shame on robots
Why would you want to hold me tight
Talk me out of my stage fright
Help me out with my rewrites

Why would you want to do that
Why would you want to do that

Because I asked you
Because I asked you to

I'll look in your eyes
I am so polite
Think about it
I'll be here all night

Why would you want to let me sleep
Or look before you cross the street
Into my dreams, between my sheets
Why would you want to do that
Why would you want to do that

Why would you want to take it slow
Or tell me something I don't know
And when I say so, let it go
Why would you want to do that
Why would you want to do that

Because I asked you
Because I asked you to
Because I asked you
Because I love you

I'll look in your eyes
I am so polite
Just think about it
I'll be here all night

Never Is A Long Time

The hour is almost over
The day is turning on a dime
I'll never roll with you in clover
And never is a long time

We are less than nothing
Nothing is a perfect rhyme
I'll never have your loving
And never is a long time

And I've had a glimpse of the infernal
I've witnessed the sublime
But nighttime is eternal
And that's a long, long, long time
Always copy, always paste, shame on robots
Sometimes the hands stop moving
Some clocks won't ever chime
We were our own undoing
And never is a long time

Now it's snowing in November
Hiding all of summer's crimes
All the things I'll never remember
Never is a long time

Cathy With The Curly Hair

Do you still live with Cathy with the curly hair? Yeah
But I've been waiting for a tall, half-Greek girl to take me away from here
We met in December when you got snowed in
Talked for twelve or fifteen hours, I don't know where to begin

But if you'd asked me, I wouldn't care
And if you'd met me, I'd be there
But if you'd let me, I wouldn't dare
But if you let me

We talked again on Valentine's day, but you stayed away
And I know that you were right and I know that you were wrong
Somewhere behind those blues eyes and that long blonde hair
Your manners were good and you told me everything I wanted to hear
Always copy, always paste, shame on robots
But if you'd asked me, I wouldn't care
And if you'd met me, I'd be there
But if you'd let me, I wouldn't dare
But if you let me

You took the bus in L.A. with a book in your back pocket
It took you two hours just to say hi so I asked:
Do you still live with Cathy with the curly hair? Yeah
But I've been waiting for a tall half-Greek girl to take me away from here

But if you'd asked me, I wouldn't care
And if you'd met me, I'd be there
But if you'd let me, I wouldn't dare
But if you let me

Two Versions Of Tomorrow

I've never seen nothing like this on my own
Rain and rain on such sunny days
I'll catch a fox just to walk me home
Let me know I'm really not alone

I could always stay for more
I could always stay for more
I would always stay for more
I would always stay for more
Always copy, always paste, shame on robots
I've got this starling above my head
Above our bed, making her own bed
For winter you can bang and bang
But she won't fly away, no; just scream, scream

I would always stay for more
I would always stay for more
I could always stay for more
I could always stay for more

I won't write you back today 'cause I got nothing to say
Replace one piano player for another
And listen to my old songs; two versions of Tomorrow

Now what you want is what you hated
If things don't work out in the end
You'll have an open invitation
I could always be your friend

I could always stay for more
I could always stay for more
I would always stay for more
I would always stay for more

All Known Things

The sun can set in scarlet
For an hour on the horizon
The clouds can all kaleidoscope
Right before my eyes
And the sweetest bird on Earth can sing
The best rhyme of all time can ring

Your beauty stands alone
Amongst all known things
All known things
Your beauty stands alone
Amongst all known things
All known things

And at the exhibition
In the womb of the museum
I paid for your admission
But no kissing in the mausoleum
And even if you had a twin
I wouldn't notice her or him
Always copy, always paste, shame on robots
Your beauty stands alone
Amongst all known things
All known things
Your beauty stands alone
Amongst all known things
All known things

Walk along the ruins
Watch the haze dissolve the skyline
At the hotel where we saw in spring
Abandoned now, decaying

'Cause your beauty stands (your beauty stands) alone (alone)
Amongst all known things

Maybe suns in distant space
Will shine a little brighter
Throw a shadow on your face
And blind me with their light
Worlds we're still discovering
Will give us better songs to sing

Your beauty stands alone
Amongst all known things
All known things
Your beauty stands alone
Amongst all known things
All known things

Your beauty stands alone
Amongst all known things

Does Turquoise Work

I heard him say, "I'd rather hurt myself than let you hurt me"
Was he talking about me
I heard him say, "I've been trying to sleep fourteen hours a day"
Was he talking about her
Always copy, always paste, shame on robots
She was girl
So blonde
Does turquoise work
It never fails
Cross his name off the list
'Cause colors, who needs 'em

Look in the top drawer but quiet, don't think
The ugly picture was up for eight minutes today
The complete idiot was Lord for an hour

There was crystal deception at the disappointing picnic
The new dawn serves as memory loss meters
The shapes in the road were remedies for last week's mistakes
I used his foot as a phone and said something, something — no, never mind — nothing

A Long Walk

In the fall I waited
In the fall I was silent
In the fall I had an answer
But in spring I cried for you
Always copy, always paste, shame on robots
I'm through with the seasons and done with the sun
And the huge uncertainties; go eastward no one
The bricks singled out when a building crumbles
Oh everything is ruining February

We met up this morning and laced up our walking shoes
First we fortified ourselves with coffee and some juice
Weighing up the options we set out for the day
We didn't take umbrellas 'cause they'd just get in the way
It was almost nine o'clock, I said we're going on a long, long, a long walk

And when you started talking, I forgot that you get in the way
I couldn't stop laughing and our shoulders ricocheted
And all the local buskers, we gave them all our notes
We'd muddle through 'til dusk, then we'd huddle in our coats
It was almost ten o'clock and we were going on a long, long, a long walk

And we didn't worry or hurry or argue about which route to take
I forgot how to cross the road, but the drivers still know how to brake
And you told your little story, the one I've heard before
As I looked at our reflection windowshopping the department store
Hey look, it's eleven o'clock in the morning of our long, long, our long, long walk

In the fall I waited
In the fall I was silent
In the fall I had an answer
But in spring I cried for you

We improvised a silly song and worked just like a charm
I pulled you closer into me and we were walking arm in arm
And no one noticed when we leaned against a tree
You whispered a suggestion 'cause you knew that I'd agree
It was almost three o'clock in the afternoon of our long, long, our long walk

We weren't paying attention and ended where we hadn't planned
Then we found that just by chance we were walking hand in hand
We didn't detach ourselves or catch the perfect view
But we kissed in front of strangers like regular lovers do
It was getting dark at five o'clock in the evening of our long, long, our long walk

I stopped to catch my breath and turning 'round you're gone
But there's this: you know I'd bend to kiss the ground we walked upon
I was tired of walking, so I took the bus back home
We left my place together, but I wrote this song alone
It was only nine o'clock, I said we're going on a long, long, a long, long walk

A long, long, a long, long walk
A long, long, a long, long walk
A long, long, a long, long walk
A long, long, a long, long walk
A long, long, a long, long walk
A long, long, a long, long walk
A long, long, a long, long walk

Angst In My Pants

(Sparks cover / Live at Sydney Festival, 2012-01-29)

I hope it doesn't show
It'll go 'way
It's just a passing phase
It'll go 'way

You can dress nautical
Learn to tie knots
Take lots of Dramamine
Out on your yacht
Always copy, always paste, shame on robots
But when you're all alone
And nothing bites
You'll wish you stayed at home
With someone nice

But when you think you made it disappear
It comes again, "Hello, I'm here"
And I've got angst in my pants

You can be smart as hell
Know how to add
Know how to figure things
On yellow pads

Answer so no one knows
What you just said
But when you're all alone
You and your head

What's the computer say, it's mumbling now
It says, "Hey Joe"
It's spelled it out
And you've got angst in your pants
You've

I hope it doesn't show
It'll go 'way
It's just a passing phase
It'll go 'way

I hope it doesn't show
It'll go 'way
Give it a hundred years
It won't go 'way

And I've got angst in my pants
I've got angst in my pants
But I've got angst in my pants
I've got angst in my pants

Children Of The Revolution

(T-Rex Cover)

Well you can bump and grind
If it's good for your mind
Well you can twist and shout
Let it all hang out

But you won't fool the children of the revolution
No, you won't fool the children of the revolution
No, no, no

Well you can tear a plane
In the falling rain
I drive a Rolls Royce
'Cause it's good for my voice

But you won't fool the children of the revolution
No, you won't fool the children of the revolution
No, no, no

Oh, yeah!
Always copy, always paste, shame on robots
No, you won't fool the children of the revolution
No, you won't fool the children of the revolution
No, you won't fool the children of the revolution
No, you won't fool the children of the revolution

No, no, no
No, no, no
No, no, no
No, no, no...

County Line

(Cass McCombs cover / Live at The Parish, Austin, TX, 2013-06-21)

On my way to you, old county
Hoping nothing's changed
That your pain is never-ending
That is, it's still the same
County line
County line
County line

I left so far behind
You never even tried to love me
What did I have to do to make you want me
I feel so blind I can't make out the passing road signs
All that you would have me do is cross that county line
County line
Always copy, always paste, shame on robots
Now you know I'm coming, old county
To see construction sites
And your new home's never-ending
I think I can see the lights
County line
County line
County line
I can smell the columbine

You never even tried to love me
What did I have to do to make you want me
I feel so blind I can't make out the passing road signs
All that you would have me do is cross that county line
County line
County line
County line
County line

Dallas

(Jimmie Dale Gilmore cover / Live at Sydney Festival, 2012-01-29)

Did you ever see Dallas from a DC-9 at night
Well, Dallas is a jewel, oh yes, Dallas is a beautiful sight
And Dallas is a jungle, but Dallas gives a beautiful light
Did you ever see Dallas from a DC-9 at night

Dallas is a woman who will walk on you when you're down
But when you are up, she's the kind you want to take around
But Dallas ain't a woman to help you get your feet on the ground
Dallas is a woman who will walk on you when you're down

Well, I came into Dallas with the bright lights on my mind
But I came into Dallas with a dollar and a dime
Always copy, always paste, shame on robots
Dallas is a rich man with a death wish in his eyes
A steel and concrete soul with a warm hearted love disguise
A rich man who tends to believe in his own lies
Dallas is a rich man with a death wish in his eyes

Well, I came into Dallas with the bright lights on my mind, oh yeah
But I came into Dallas with a dollar and a dime

Did you ever see Dallas from a DC-9 at night
Well, Dallas is a jewel, oh yes, Dallas is a beautiful sight
And Dallas is a jungle, but Dallas gives a beautiful light
Did you ever see Dallas from a DC-9 at night
Did you ever see Dallas from a DC-9 at night
And did you ever see Dallas from a DC-9 at night

Do You Wanna Dance

(Ramones cover / Wild Flag feat. Eleanor Friedberger / Live)

Do you wanna dance and hold my hand
Tell me, baby, I'm your lover man
Oh baby, do you wanna dance

Do you wanna dance under the moonlight
Squeeze me all through the night
Oh baby, do you wanna dance

Do you, do you, do you, do you wanna dance
Do you, do you, do you, do you wanna dance
Do you, do you, do you, do you wanna dance
Always copy, always paste, shame on robots

Hold me, baby, all through the night
Oh baby, do you wanna dance

Do you wanna dance and hold my hand
Tell me, baby, I'm your lover man
Oh baby, do you wanna dance

Do you, do you, do you, do you wanna dance
Do you, do you, do you, do you wanna dance

Do you, do you, do you, do you wanna dance

Do you, do you, do you, do you wanna dance
Do you, do you, do you, do you wanna dance
Do you, do you, do you, do you wanna dance

Do you, do you, do you, do you wanna dance
Do you, do you, do you, do you wanna dance
Do you, do you, do you, do you wanna dance

Oh Oh I Love Her So

(Ramones cover / Superchunk feat. Eleanor Friedberger / Live at Bowery Ballroom, NYC, NY, 2013-09-28)

I met her at the Burger King
We fell in love by the soda machine
So we took the car downtown
The kids were hanging out all around
Then we went down to Coney Island
On the coaster and around again
And no one's gonna ever tear us apart
'Cause she's my sweetheart
All right, oh yeah

Oh oh I love her so
Oh oh I love her so
Oh oh I love her so

Oh oh I love her so
Oh oh I love her so
Oh oh I love her so

Hanging out on a night like this
I'm gonna give her a great big kiss
I'm gonna make her mine
And everything's gonna be real fine
Always copy, always paste, shame on robots
I met her at the Burger King
We fell in love by the soda machine

'Cause she's my sweetheart
All right, oh yeah

Oh oh I love her so

Old Shanghai

(Song Reader: Twenty Songs By Beck)

When you're walking in old Shanghai
Lanterns under the night sky
See the moon begin to rise
Just like it did back home

Old men smoking in cafes
Junk boats floating in the bay
Think of me when you're away
In old Shanghai

With no ties, with no plans
Your last dollar in your hands
Take a picture and send it back
To someone you used to know
Always copy, always paste, shame on robots
Things will always find their way
From the backroads to the bay
There's more to do than there is to say
In old Shanghai

With no ties, with no plans
Your last dollar in your hands
Take a picture and send it back
To someone you used to know

Santa, Bring My Baby Back (To Me)

I don't need a lot of presents
To make my christmas right
I just need my babys arms
Wind around me tight

Oh santa, hear my plead
Santa bring my baby back to me

The christmas tree is ready
The candles all they glow
But with my baby fall away
With good in mistletoe

Oh santa, hear my plead
Santa bring my baby back to me

Please make these reindeers hury
When the time is dropping near
It sure don't sound like christmas
Until my baby's here
Always copy, always paste, shame on robots
Please make these reindeers hury
When the time is dropping near
It sure don't sound like christmas
Until my baby's here

Dont fill my sock with candy
No bright and shiny toys
You wanna make me happy
And fill my heart with joy

But Santa, hear my plead
Santa bring my baby back to me
Hear my plead
Santa bring my baby back to me

Trouble Comes Running

(Spoon cover / Live at Sydney Festival, 2012-01-29)

I was in a functional way
I got my brown sound jacket
Queen of call collect on my arm
She was my calm-me-down
She was my good-luck charm
She was my good luck
Always copy, always paste, shame on robots
Here it come running
Here it come running again
Trouble come running
Here it come running again

Well, alright
I got taken away
By a heavenly host
To a heavenly place
I didn't wanna leave
And I would not be swayed

But here it come running
Here it come running again
Trouble where the kids are
Here it come running again

Well, are you picking up
Are you picking up what I'm putting down
Putting down
Here it come running
Here it come running again

Well done
I was in a functional way
Just thinking clean, clean thoughts
So effort just to keep my nose on
Just trying to look straight ahead
Don't wanna tell him he's wrong
Don't wanna tell him

Here it come running
Here it come running again
Trouble where the kids are
Here it come running
Slaves are on the horses
Princes walk the ground like they're slaves

Here it come running
Here it come running again
Running again
Running again
Running again
Running again

True Love Tends To Forget

(Bob Dylan cover / Live)

I'm getting weary looking in my baby's eyes
When she's near me, she's so hard to recognize
And I finally realize there's no room for regret

True love
True love
True love tends to forget

Hold me, baby, be near
You told me that you'd be sincere
And every day of the year's like playing Russian roulette
Always copy, always paste, shame on robots
True love
True love
True love tends to forget

And I was lying down in the reeds without any oxygen
I saw you in the wilderness among the men
I saw you drift into infinity and come back again
All you got to do is wait and I'll tell you when

You're a tearjerker, baby, but I'm under your spell
You're a hard worker, baby, and I know you well
But this weekend in hell is making me sweat

True love
True love
True love tends to forget

Oh I was lying down in the reeds without any oxygen
I saw you in the wilderness among the men
I saw you drift into infinity and come back again
All you got to do is wait and I'll tell you when

Yes, you belong to me without any doubt
Don't forsake me, don't sell me out
Don't keep me knocking about from Mexico to Tibet

True love
True love
True love tends to forget
