Lyrics

I can't be satisfied with a substitute

I ain't gratified with a parachute woman

(it's) not ratified, it's not resolute

I'm not satisfied, can't be satisfied.

When I wake up in the morning and I got the blues

I'm giving you a warning, I was born to lose.

Can't be satisfied, there's no denying

I ain't satisfied, I can't keep from crying

I'm fit to be tied, (there's) nothing short of dying

ain't been satisfied, can't be satisfied.

When I wake up in the morning and I got the blues

I'm giving you a warning, I was born to lose.

Can't be satisfied with a substitute

I ain't gratified with a parachute woman

not ratified, (it's) not resolute

ain't been satisfied, can't be satisfied

I'm not satisfied, can't be satisfied

ain't been satisfied, can't be satisfied

Lyrics

Don't try to explain cause I don't want to hear

Every word you say just sounds so insincere

Don't try to explain, I've heard  it all before

I don't want to hear

I don't want to know

No I don't want to hear the things you have to say

It's hard to steer when you look at me that way

Don't try to explain, just lie to me some more

I don't want to hear

I don't want to know.

I've been down that road before

Ain't going down that road no more

So don't try to explain cause I don't want to see

Even though it's all right there in front of me

Don't try to explain, I'm looking at the floor

I don't want to hear

I don't want to know.

Been down that road before

Ain't going down that road no more.

Although I can't deny the way you made me feel

You know that doesn't mean I thought you were for real

So don't try to explain, I've heard it all before

I don't want to hear

I don't want to know

No I don't want to hear the things you have to say

It's hard to steer when you look at me that way

Don't try to explain, just lie to me some more

I don't want to hear

I don't want to know.

Lyrics

On the bright side

You had nothing in common anyway

On the bright side

Remember how she used to drive you crazy

On the bright side

She's way too beautiful for her own good

On the bright side

You would be with her if you could

It's only love

The whole world revolves around you.

On the bright side

It's only love that's imitating art

On the bright side

It's only love that's tearing you apart

On the bright side

It's only love

It's nothing more than that

On the bright side

It's only love.

On the bright side

You don't have to share the bed

On the bright side

You can sleep when you're dead.

You know it's only love

The whole world revolves around you

You know it's only love

It don't go around without you.

On the bright side

You don't have to share the bed

On the bright side

You can sleep when you're dead.

You know it's only love

The whole world revolves around you

You know it's only love

It won't go around without you

Know it's only love

The whole world revolves around you

You know it's only love

It won't go around without you

Lyrics

I'm lost in the wood

I'm lost in the wood.

I've been driving that road since last October

With ice and rain on my window pane

My Daddy been dying

The sky been crying

I'm lost in the woods

I'm misunderstood.

I'm lost in the wood

I'm lost in the wood.

I'm lost in the wood, I'm misunderstood

I've been down that road since last October

With ice and rain on my window pane

I'm lost in the wood

I'm misunderstood.

I'm lost in the wood

I'm lost in the wood.

I'm lost in the wood, I'm misunderstood

You've been dying, the sky been crying

I'm lost in the wood, I'm misunderstood

Now you're gone, left me here to sing this song

I'm lost in the wood

I'm lost in the wood

This can come to no good

I'm lost the wood.

Lyrics

Dark was the night

Cold was the ground

Cold was the ground ooh hoo

Dark were her eyes

Cold was her heart

Cold was her heart that heroine

He looked into the night, so cold and black

He looked into those eyes, there was no turning back.

Dark was the night

Cold was the ground ooh hoo

Through the trees the wind does play it's lonesome tune

And them years done slipped away

And a cloud it hid the moon

Dark was the night

Cold was the ground ooh hoo

Lyrics

Well some of these days and it won't be long

Well some of these days and it won't be long

You're gonna look for me and I'll be gone

You're gonna look for me and I'll be

Howling at the moon, yelling at the sky

Night can't come too soon, day can pass us by

Find my way through the trees

Howling at the moon, look what you have done to me

Done to me

To me

Done to me

The river deep and the river wide

The river deep and the river wide

I've been standing on the other side

I've been standing on the other side

Howling at the moon, yelling at the sky

Night can't come too soon, day can pass us by

Find my way to the trees

Howling at the moon, look what you have done to me

Done to me

To me

Done to me

Well goodbye baby I said fare thee well

Well goodbye baby I said fare thee well

If I don't see you no more in this world

I'll see you in heaven

If I don't see you no more in this world I'll be

Howling at the moon, yelling at the sky

Night can't come too soon, day can pass us by

Find my way through the trees

Howling at the moon, look what you have done to me

Done to me

To me

Done to me

Lyrics

Working on a railroad, the live long day.

An angel lost her halo yesterday.

This is my suspicion, intuition.

This is my revelation, realization.

 

Just east of Eden, beside yourself.

Right next to nothing and overwhelmed.

This is my position, my condition.

This my location, desolation.

Desolation, isolation

Isolation, desolation.

 

Little by little and side by side

Your motion for acquittal has been denied.

She is my temptation, my salvation

My incantation, feel the vibration.

Vibration

Revelation

Incantation

Salvation

Lyrics

This isn't what's supposed to happen, but love is blind.

You've been casting pearls before swine.

Taxing without representation.

Caught between the devil and the deep blue ocean.

 

I think we better run for cover before they know we're missing.

I tried to warn you but you would not listen.

Biting off more than you can chew.

You want to have your cake and eat it too.

 

You're playing truth or consequences, do or die.

It's time we came back to our senses, you and I.

They say it takes one to know one, the truth is unkind.

You've been casting pearls before swine.

Lyrics

When her body moves

The soul begin to fly

And the ceiling rise

The feeling crack the sky

You flee yourself

You float upstream

You free yourself

and in between

Just listen to the voice inside your head

In your head

In your head.

Look into her eyes

Now turn inside her heart

A body of lies

A subversive work of art

You tell yourself it's just a dream

You live your life on Magazine

You listen to the voice inside your head.

Lyrics

As I walk along

Along the waters edge

And I think about

All of those things you said

Honolulu

The words of a song

The sound of a violin

They linger on

After the dying

Honolulu

Lyrics

Like they say, Rome wasn't built in a day.

Yeah that's true, but it doesn't matter to you.

Oh you see, it used to matter to me.

You're gonna find, it's just a matter of time

before you wake up and smell the coffee

why can't you just own up to the truth and cop a plea?

Yesterday you got carried away.

Yeah you did

Ain't no doubt about it

Like a song, you were here now you're gone

a memory of a melody.

And if, if you would just make up your mind

I swear it won't be as hard as you think it's going to be.

Yes I said if, if you would just break up the ties that bind you

from growing into something that you know that you could be.

wake up and smell the coffee

Why can't you just own up to the truth and cop a plea?

Lyrics

Well she looks like a Christmas tree

and she sounds just like a symphony

with all her pipes and drums,

nobody knows where she's from,

knows where shes from.

And she is like a big parade

yes I'm out selling lemonade

with all the boys and girls.

She's from another world

from another world.

Now hush little baby, don't say a word

Gonna buy you a mockingbird.

Yeah you look like a Christmas tree

and you sound like a symphony

with all your ribbons and curls

she's from another world

she's from another world.

Now hush little baby, don't say a word

He's gonna buy you a mockingbird

If that mockingbird don't

that mockingbird don't sing

He's gonna buy you a diamond ring.

Cause she looks like a Christmas tree

and she sounds like a symphony

with all her pipes and drums

nobody know where she's from

knows where she's from.

nobody knows where she's from

knows where she's from.
