Track Name: Living It All Wrong
I talked to Rebekah on the phone last night
I made her feel bad when she was feeling all right.
And I don’t see an end in sight
I’ve been living it all wrong. Living it all wrong.

We were making our plans, I was nervous as could be
I don’t know if I love her or if she loves me
And love don’t come too easily
When you’re living it all wrong. Living it all wrong.

On the shelf the bells are sitting
I don’t know if they’ve been ringing
In this filthy room there’s no salvation
Where’s the girl and where’s the boy?
Where is all the happiness and joy?
And the excitement of tomorrow?

Rebekah, it’s easy
I thought it would be . . . easy.

We talked about moving to a country place
Living our lives at an easy pace.
I said “you know my habits are hard to erase.
I’ve been living it all wrong. Living it all wrong.”

Where’s the girl and where’s the boy?
Where is all the happiness and joy?
Are you gonna see me tomorrow?

Rebekah, it’s easy
I thought it would be . . . easy.
Track Name: Carolyn
Carolyn said the wrong thing again
And everybody tried but they didn’t know what she meant.
It’s not easy when Carolyn says the wrong thing.

Carolyn don’t go home again
It’s no good for you
They don’t know what to do
Just come with me and we’ll see a movie
And walk down Broadway.

And don’t try to say the right thing
Cause it will come out wrong
Don’t try to take my hand
Because you know we don’t belong together
Carolyn, we don’t belong.

It’s just another day with Carolyn.
It’s never easy, no, no.
Another day for Carolyn.
She’s going crazy, yeah, yeah.
Another day with Carolyn.
She doesn’t need me anymore.
Another day with Carolyn.

Carolyn, it’s the same thing again.
Stars are in your eyes and lipstick traces.
Rooms are dancing and you’re in fantasy land.
Aw, but Carolyn, don’t be afraid again.
There’s nothing else to do and I’m here too.
So close your eyes and rest awhile
And I’ll sit beside you

And don’t try to say the right thing
Cause it will come out wrong
Don’t try to take my hand
Because you know we don’t belong together
Carolyn, we don’t belong.
Track Name: Always Till Always
They tried to tell me back in 1921
You better have fun, cause it’s over soon
I was living in a valley then, and there were shadows on the wall
Noone to call on the telephone

Always till always, a voice would say to me
I wish that you could see the mountain
Always till always, you know the waters of the sea
They just want to be somebody, just like you do.

Down down by the river of the sound
That’s where I wanted to be
They don’t have no words there, it’s just power

You can stand in the middle of a sound wave
And listen to the noise
Everybody would enjoy that power

Always till always, a voice would say to me
You know who I am now, don’t you?
Always till always, you know the waters of the sea
They just want to be somebody, just like you want to be somebody.

Thomas Hart Benton back in 1932
Didn’t know what to do with his lifetime
He was looking at his paintbrush in the middle of the afternoon
10,000 people in his lifetime.

Always till always, a voice would say to me
I wish you knew where you were going
Always till always, you know the waters of the sea
They just want to be somebody, just like you do.

Always till always, always till always . . .
Track Name: Suburban Song
We went to the recital on Monday and then we came home
And washed the window.
The weather was lovely all weekend
But we are alone once again.

And she’s cleaning the counter
She’s cleaning the window, the window.

I am thinking about the recital
I’m still listening to the recital
And she is walking down the stairway
Where I once used to play.

We used to be married
But now we are living alone once again
In the surrounding desert sun.

Where the sun meets the trees
And the trees meet the sun
And the rain’s coming down
And we’re walking around.
We’re walking.

She turns out the light in the kitchen
And goes up to bed
Just like she used to.

I’m sitting down and I’m listening to what she said
Once again.

As I am closing my eyes
I hear the water running.
As I am closing my eyes
I can hear someone coming . .

I go up to bed.
She’s resting her head.

I am thinking about the recital.
I’m still listening to the recital.
And she is walking down the stairway
Where I once used to play.
Track Name: Fragments Falling
I moved away from everything
From politics and piano playing
I should have kept some souvenirs
But I’m not sorry because
The people where I’m living now
They don’t speak English. English.

Tons and tons of melodies
Slipped through my fingers like symphonies
But that’s so funny now because I realize that
Somebody’s gonna pick up all those pieces and make some money.
Money!

Fragments falling.
Fragments falling.
Fragments falling over me.
Fragments over me.

I get some calls on the telephone
From broken hearted people all alone.
I’m gonna change my number soon,
As soon as I get some money.
It would probably be easier
If I didn’t know English.
English.

And if I move away from here
I’ll move to a place so beautiful and clear
A place where everyone knows what to do on Saturdays
And I’ll be thinking about the building
As it fades into the night time.
Night time!

Fragments falling.
Fragments falling.
Fragments falling over me.
Fragments over me.
Track Name: We Now Have Time
We now have time
Put your head down.
Talke a walk in the old town.
Past the window with ceramic figurines.
Settle down now, you know what I mean
We now have time.
We now have time.

You’re not supposed to know where you’re going tonight
And you’re not supposed to know if the end will be alright,
But a few small words and then you’ll know
Put them down and let them show
We now have time.
We now have time.

Time to talk out loud
And time to build a home
Time to fight
And time to be alone
Time to read a book
About a long time ago.

So look outside, there’s a house up in the air
Now look outside, there’s trees falling everywhere
Close your eyes and close your ears
Take a breath, the storm is here.
We now have time.
We now have time.

The ceiling’s blue and the paint is white
And the fat lady says, “there’s no end in sight”
And I don’t know her, but I’m sitting on her bed
I look outside and just like the lady said,
We now have time.
We now have time.
We now have time.
We now have time.
Track Name: On The Moon
On this surface we are singing
Baby it’s a drag.
She has got her children with her
And I have got my magazine.
I don’t have my magazine.

In our spacesuits we are crying
It’s another show.
She has got her own antenna
And I don’t have my radio
I don’t have my radio.

On the moon
We don’t get good reception, on the moon
On the moon
We don’t get very far, on the moon.

And we don’t hurt our children here
Cause we know where we are.
We’re on this surface that we call the moon.

If you ever take a spaceship
Come to visit me
I am living on this planet
With my little family, with my little family.

On the moon
We don’t get good reception, on the moon
On the moon
We don’t get very far, on the moon.

And we don’t hurt our children here
Cause we know where we are.
We’re on this surface that we call the moon.

We are on the moon
We are on the moon
We’re on the moon.
Track Name: If I Were You
If I were you I would love me
I’m not as bad as I seem.
I go to sleep and I dream
Just like everybody else does.

If you were me
You’d be lonely
You wouldn’t know what to do.
And you’d be thinking of you and you’d miss yourself.
I know you would.

That’s why I always go around, around.
I need someone to bring me down
To the ocean.

If I were you I’d be leaving
I would be walking away
And I’d be listening to my footsteps
As I’m leaving me.

If you were me, you’d be listening
As you were walking away
And there’s nothing to say
Cause there’s nobody here
It’s only time to listen to the silent night

Silent night
Get up in the morning and put on your clothes
Silent night, silent night, night.
Get up in the morning and put on your shoes.
Silent night, silent night, night
Get up in the morning and put on your clothes
Silent night, silent night, night
Get up in the morning and put on your shoes
Silent night, silent night, night
Get up in the morning and put on your shoes.
Silent night, silent night
Get up in the morning and put on your clothes
Silent night, silent night, silent night
Get up in the morning and put on your shoes
Silent night, silent night, night.
Get up in the morning and put on your clothes.
Track Name: Way Over The Hill
Way over the hill
That’s where we gone
That’s what we did.

We followed the ground
Look what we found
We’re on the top of the world.

If you want to see
What it is like
Over the hill

Just look in the sky
My cherry pie
We’re on the top of the world.

And if you think that summer
Didn’t come this year
I think that you’ll find it
If you come over here.

And if you think you’re going
And if you think that you’ve gone.
You know where to find us
At the end of the song

Way over the hill
That’s where we gone
That’s what we did.

We followed the ground
Look what we found
We’re on the top of the world.
