Threatening To Rain
 
 
I’m Telling You Now
 
Deep-seated hatred
Sudden bouts of paranoia
Malevolent memories of an unknown design
 
Somebody told you once
Somebody told you once
But I’m telling you now
I’m telling you now
 
You’re amazing and you’re beautiful
You’re a miracle
I’m telling you now
I’m telling you now
 
Lah dah Lah dah
Dah Dah Dah
Dah Dah Dah
 
Lah dah Lah dah
Dah Dah Dah
Dah Dah Dah
 
It’s the talk of the town
That you used to be around
And you went so many places
And you met so many people
And you tied your little ribbons
Around an unknown number of hearts
 
You were amazing
You were beautiful
You’re a miracle
 
I’m telling you now
I’m telling you now
 
Lah dah Lah dah
Dah Dah Dah
Dah Dah Dah
 
Lah dah Lah dah
Dah Dah Dah
Dah Dah Dah
 
You’re amazing and you’re beautiful
You’re amazing and you’re beautiful
You’re amazing and you’re beautiful
You’re a miracle
I’m telling you now
 
 
The Moon and the Stars
 
I wonder if you’ll ever hear this song
I wonder I wonder
And I’m sorry if my thoughts were so wrong
I guess I’m only human after all
 
She’ll blow her kisses to the moon and the stars
The moon and the stars
I wonder where you are
She’ll blow her kisses to the moon and the stars
The moon and the stars
I wonder where you are
 
The sun comes up on a hopeless horizon
That I had no business to see
The sun goes down on a tragic situation
That brought out the coward in me
 
She’ll blow her kisses to the moon and the stars
The moon and the stars
I wonder where you are
She’ll blow her kisses to the moon and the stars
The moon and the stars
I wonder where you are
 
Homeland security
Conversion therapy
Twisters in Arkansas
Earthquakes in Tokyo
One-sided love affairs
Psychotic suicides
Coffee shop discotheques
Rock n roll dreams
 
I guess you’re all out of luck this time
I guess you’re all out of luck this time
 
She’ll blow her kisses to the moon and the stars
The moon and the stars
I wonder where you are
She’ll blow her kisses to the moon and the stars
The moon and the stars
I wonder where you are
 
 
Threatening to Rain
 
It’s threatening to rain
Maybe it already did
And scene after scene
Street after street
Flashes before your eyes
 
Well you crossed the mighty ocean
And you slew the fiery dragon
And you rescued all the princesses
And sailed into the sun
What more could you have done
What more could you have done
 
Well I said what I said
I said what I said
I did what I did
I did what I did
I saw what I saw
And I heard what I heard
 
And the sun came up
The sun came up
On a world out of line
All out of luck
You still say your prayers
And why not
You might be the one
To make yourself heard
To tip the balance
 
Well you crossed the mighty ocean
And you slew the fiery dragon
And you rescued all the princesses
And sailed into the sun
What more could you have done
What more could you have done
 
With the light in your eyes
The breath in your lungs
The hope in your heart
And why not
 
It’s threatening to rain
Maybe it already did
 
 
The Devil’s In The Details
 
I surrendered to the roses
And everything was sweet
I closed my eyes to the setting sun
And everything was complete
 
I thought I had it all worked out
But the devil’s in the details
 
Well people talk about eternity
Like it’s something they could ever comprehend
Well it’s always been quite clear to me
A fascination with no end
 
I found bliss in a vague idea
But the devil’s in the details
 
Well I knew which bus to catch
And I knew which train to take
No clue where I was going
But I knew there was a lot at stake
 
You can’t just float and you can’t just fly
Someone’s always gonna take you for a ride
You can’t just talk and you can’t just sing
You can’t just be anything
The devil’s in the details
 
Eastern city Fine and fair
No-one knew me anywhere
But people get suspicious
Of a meaningless life
 
You wanna know why
The devil’s in the details
 
Well I say hello and I say goodbye
And that’s just fine for just a little while
I don’t want to know your story
You most certainly don’t need to know mine
 
It’s alright
Let’s leave the devil in the details
 
I knew which bus to catch
And I knew which train to take
No clue where I was going
But I knew there was a lot at stake
 
You can’t just float and you can’t just fly
Someone’s always gonna take you for a ride
You can’t just talk and you can’t just sing
You can’t just be anything
The devil’s in the details
 
 
Yippee Aye Ay
 
I see hazy skies as I take to my bed
I’m a fat old man with a thick old head
I think a good woman might just save me from myself
Who knows she might need saving as well
We could save each other on the way down to hell
We could have some good times
We could ring some bells
We could ring some bells
We could ring some bells
 
I could eat an ice cream in a comfortable seat
Get down and dirty in a dead-end street
I could be oh so quiet
I could make some noise
I could pay my money
I could take my choice
 
Hear me singing now
Yippee Aye Yippee Yippee Yippee Aye Ay
Mo mo mo mo mo mo
Yippee Aye Yippee Aye Ay
 
Yippee Aye Yippee Aye Ay
Oh lordy lordy lord
Yippee Aye Yippee Yippee Yippee Aye Ay
 
The sun is shining There’s a chill in the air
There’s gotta be a reason to live out there
Where the flowers are blooming
And the grass is growing high
We could build a future
We could be just fine
We could take it easy
We could take our time
Who knows how long this sun’s gonna shine
Will you be mine til the end of time
Will you be mine all mine
 
I could eat an ice cream in a dead-end street
Get down and dirty in a comfortable seat
I could be oh so quiet
I could make some noise
I could pay my money
I could take my choice
 
Hear me singing now
Yippee Aye Yippee Yippee Yippee Aye Ay
Mo mo mo mo mo mo
Yippee Aye Yippee Aye Ay
 
Yippee Aye Yippee Aye Ay
Oh lordy lordy lord
Yippee Aye Yippee Yippee Yippee Aye Ay
 
 
The Comfort Life
 
There may come a day
When all your favorite things
Just seem to disappear
 
And you may start to think
That you’re kind of not welcome here
 
Someday the sun will explode
Catastrophic change for sure
And I won’t be singing
I won’t be singing about it
 
And you know it’s going to be another crazy summer
I just hope I get to see that river once again
Wild fires and riots and
Predictions of apocalypse
 
And whether you like it or not
I’ll be singing about it
 
Mmm mmm mmm mmm mmm mmm
 
Well I’m taking it easy now
I like the comfort life
I ain’t no fashion victim
I just like the comfort life
 
Socks and sandals
Elasticated corduroys
Well that’s how all the cool kids roll now anyway
Yeah that’s how all the cool kids roll now anyway
 
Mmm mmm mmm mmm mmm mmm
 
 
Begging to be Vaporized
 
La da dah da dah la dah da
La la la la la
 
The city clock says half past no idea at all
The autocrat has lost his invitation to the ball
Though I’m not sure anyone is dancing anymore
I’m not sure anyone is dancing anymore
 
La da dah da dah la dah da
La la la la la
 
And all the songs are perfectly devoid of any soul
No sign of any human imperfection there at all
Quantized cauterized digitally euthanized
Begging to be vaporized
Begging to be vaporized
 
La da dah da dah la dah da
La la la la la
 
A rare bird paid a visit to the neighborhood
Mostly only seen in warmer climes
I heard some people went outside to try to get a look
First real news I’d heard in quite a while
First real news I’d heard in quite a while
 
La da dah da dah la dah da
La la la la la
La da dah da dah la dah da
 
 
Big Old Moon
 
I saw the big old moon
Through the branches of a big old tree
And I knew one day that I’d lose you
And you’d lose me
That’s just the way it’s got to be
That’s just the way it’s got to be
 
But please don’t cry too many tears
You know we had a lot of years
Maybe more than I deserved
Maybe more than I deserved
 
Big old moon
Big old moon
Big old moon
Big old moon
 
I saw young lovers in the night
Captured by the light
Walking side by side
Occasionally touching
Young lovers in the night
Captured by the light
 
Big old moon
Big old moon
Big old moon
Big old moon
 
I saw the big old moon
Through the branches of a big old tree
And I knew one day that I’d lose you
And you’d lose me
That’s just the way it’s got to be
That’s just the way it’s got to be
 
 
Shallow
 
Shallow
Lacking any kind of depth
Shallow
Bereft
Of anything approaching depth
Shallow
 
But you talk a good game
Yeah you talk a good game
Over and over again
Over and over again
 
Shallow
Shallow
 
Can you see the bottom
It’s coming up fast
Can you see the bottom
All of this can’t last
 
Feel the light guide you
Let the love know you
Hold your eyes inside your head
 
Feel the light guide you
Let the love know you
Hold your eyes inside your head
 
 
Pale Blue Velvet Sunrise
 
All blue sky
Pale blue velvet sunrise
 
Just happy to be alive
Happy to be alive
 
I’m sinking in
I’m sinking in
To pale blue velvet sunrise
 
Never was any good at all that
Never was any good at all that
 
I’m sinking in I’m sinking in
I’m sinking in I’m sinking in
 
To pale blue velvet sunrise
 
All blue sky
Pale blue velvet sunrise
 
 
Every Time I look At You
 
One step then another and another
And soon you’re gonna find
A thousand miles behind
One breath then another and another
And the days turn to months
And the months and the years go by
 
Every time I look at you
I’m home
Where I belong
I’m home
Where nothing’s wrong
Every time I look at you
 
By the mountain river
In your eyes the moonlight shines
White sands blue sea
Your body bathed in a golden light
 
Every time I look at you
I’m home
Where I belong
I’m home
Where nothing’s wrong
Every time I look at you
 
No one knows where the chips may fall
No one knows
Let the records show that I loved you
I loved you
Let the records show
 
Every time I look at you
I’m home
Where I belong
I’m home
Where nothing’s wrong
Every time I look at you
 
 
What Goes Around
 
What goes around comes around
Here comes the sunshine
What goes around comes around
Here comes the blue sky
 
I haven’t seen it in a little long while
But I’m sure glad that it’s here
I’m sure glad that it’s here
After all the tears
I’m sure glad that it’s here
 
La la la la la la la la la la
 
Sunshine and blue sky
Sunshine and blue sky
 
I’m sure glad that you’re here
After all the tears
I’m sure glad that your here
 
What goes around comes around
What goes around comes around
What goes around comes around
 
 
Hey Billy
 
Billy was a joker Billy was a thief
Billy was a two-faced lover with some bare-faced cheek
Billy never trusted anybody
After the fact
But Billy never talked about that
 
Hey Billy why d’ you look so sad
Things can’t be all that bad
But then what would I know
Of the devastation in your soul
 
You can choose to lie
You can choose to go a long for the ride
You can choose to have it all
You can choose nothing at all
 
Billy was the victim Billy was the prey
Billy could be vengeful on any given day
Billy was a commoner Billy was elite
Billy was anything but discreet
 
Hey Billy why d’ you look so sad
Things can’t be all that bad
But then what would I know
Of the devastation in your soul
 
You can choose to lie
You can choose to go a long for the ride
You can choose to have it all
You can choose nothing at all
 
Hey Billy why d’ you look so sad
Things can’t be all that bad
But then what would I know
Of the devastation in your soul
 
Hey Billy why d’ you look so sad
 
 
They Don’t Care At All
 
It’s a cruel world that’s the truth
You’ll be lucky if you find someone who cares for you
It’s a cruel world that’s the truth
You’re kind of on your own
 
They don’t care at all
They don’t give a damn
They don’t care at all
You are just a bag of bones
They have no wish to understand at all
 
It’s a mad world that’s for sure
It’ll chew you up spit you out
And show you the door
It’s a mad world that’s for sure
And everyone’s insane
 
They don’t care at all
They don’t give a damn
They don’t care at all
You are just a bag of bones
They have no wish to understand at all
 
Aah Ah Aah Ah
Aah Ah Aah Ah Aah Ah
 
But there are some people who want to see the best in you
Maybe that’s what they were put on earth to do
They’re gonna wanna love you
And want nothing in return
They might just help you make it through
 
But do they care it all
Do they give a damn
Do they care it all
Or are you just a bag of bones
They have no wish to understand at all
 
 
All The Money In The World
 
They say what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger
That’ll keep you going for a while
But it don’t stop the shadows getting longer
It don’t turn the tears into smiles
 
All the money in the world
Won’t make the sun shine any stronger
Won’t make the rain taste any sweeter in the summer
Won’t make you kiss me anymore
All the money in the world
Won’t make you love me anymore
 
You hear a lot of songs about an old friend
And all the times you used to have
You hear a lot of songs about a hometown
You burn all your bridges
And you can’t go back
 
All the money in the world
Won’t make the sun shine any stronger
Won’t make the rain taste any sweeter in the summer
Won’t make you kiss me anymore
All the money in the world
Won’t make you love me anymore
 
Now there are two paths you can go by
One with pain and one with less
No one ever said there’d be perfection in this life
No one ever said that you’d be blessed
 
All the money in the world
Won’t make the sun shine any stronger
Won’t make the rain taste any sweeter in the summer
Won’t make you kiss me anymore
All the money in the world
Won’t make you love me anymore
 
All the money in the world
Won’t make you love me anymore
