    • Do do do do do do do do do do

      I wear a demeanor made of bright pretty things
      What she wears, what she wears, what she wears
      Birds singing on my shoulder in harmony it seems
      How they sing, how they sing, how they sing

      Give me nights of solitude, red wine just a glass or two,
      Reclined in a hammock on a balmy evening
      I'll pretend that it's no thing
      That skip in my heart when I think
      Of you thinking of me babe I'm crazy over you

      Aaah Aaah Aaah
      There's something in the water, something in the water
      Aaah Aaah Aaah
      There's something in the water, that makes me love you like –

      I've got halo's made of summer, rhythms made of spring
      What she wears, what she wears, what she wears
      I got crowns of words a woven each one a song to sing
      Oh I sing, oh I sing, oh I sing

      Give me long days in the sun,
      Preludes to the nights to come
      Previews of the mornings laying in all lazy
      Give me something fun to do like a life of loving you
      Kiss me quick now baby I'm still crazy over you

      Aaah Aaah Aaah
      There's something in the water, something in the water
      Aaah Aaah Aaah
      There's something in the water that makes me love you like I do

      Oooh oooh oooh [x3]

      Give me nights of solitude, red wine just a glass or two, give me something fun to do

      Aaah Aaah Aaah
      There's something in the water, something in the water
      Aaah Aaah Aaah
      There's something in the water that makes me love you like I do

      Aaah Aaah Aaah
      There's something in the water, something in the water
      Aaah Aaah Aaah
      There's something in the water that makes me love you like I –

    • You got a quick snap-lock on your cold, cold heart
      You got your YSL kicks and a red birthmark
      In the shape of Canada
      That you try to keep a secret

      You got a quick clack walk and a cold hard stare
      And if your eyes could talk they'd say they just don't care
      Before they wander off
      To hide inside their sockets

      You've got your scars and you've got your birthmarks
      You've got Toronto hiding on your hip, honey
      You've got your secrets
      You've got your regrets
      Darling, we all do

      You got a fool-proof plan for a lonely life
      You won't be no one's daughter and no drunk man's wife
      If a wife at all
      It's a silly institution
      Or so you keep insisting

      You've got your scars and you've got your birthmarks
      You've got Toronto hiding on your hip, honey
      You've got your secrets
      You've got your regrets
      Darling, we all do

      You're cool coy, 'bout to stroll, very hip
      It's you that's hidden by the expectations
      We want to see you, won't you show us where to start?
      You're talking trash with your red liquor lips
      It's you that tickle in the conversation
      Sweet Betty, won't you show us who you are?

      You've got your scars and you've got your birthmarks
      You've got Toronto hiding on your hip, honey
      You've got your secrets
      You've got your regrets
      Darling, we all do

      You've got a quick snap-lock on your cold, cold heart

    • In me, in you
      Orphans, kingdoms
      Wide eyes and paper crowns
      Time will hold us,
      Time eroders
      We're wrinkling chilling out

      We are wondering where the wild wind blows
      We are happy here 'cause the wild wind knows
      What we are
      Orphans, kingdoms

      In me, in you
      Things explorers
      Named with codes of arms
      A world inside us
      A feast, a harvest
      Each of us slum a star

      We are wondering where the wild wind blows
      We are happy here 'cause the wild wind knows
      What we are
      Orphans, kingdoms

      Eat and drink, for tomorrow we die
      We will look our waker in the eye
      Raise a flag and then drink to your health
      Who is he that can comfort himself?

      We are wondering where the wild wind blows
      We are happy here 'cause the wild wind knows
      What we are
      Orphans, kingdoms

    • So we're back here again
      Tiptoeing round the edge of the end
      Wondering who will be last to admit
      That we're finally over

      Turned twenty one on a day that we met
      Terrible shoes, implausible dress
      It's funny how sad the funny things get as you grow older

      Better or worse
      But what else can we do?
      For better or worse
      I am tethered to you
      If it's not either of us
      Tell me who are we fooling?

      I learnt the art of biting my tongue
      I tired of trying to guess what was wrong
      Both agreed on where we should go
      But not how to get there

      We tried and tried to loosen the knots
      Thinking once we're untangled we'll be better off
      But it's these failures and faults that hold us together

      Better or worse
      But what else can we do?
      And better or worse
      I am tethered to you
      If it's not either of us
      Tell me who are we fooling?

      This beautiful tangle that's bruising us blue
      It's a beautiful knot that we just can't undo
      Together we're one but apart tell me
      Who are we fooling?

      Cause real love
      Is hard love
      It's all we have
      It's a break-neck
      Train wreck
      It's all we have

      So we're back here again
      Turning away from the edge of the end
      Arm in arm

      Better or worse
      But what else can we do?
      And better or worse
      I am tethered to you
      If it's not either of us
      Tell me who are we fooling?

      This beautiful tangle that's bruising us blue
      It's a beautiful knot we just can't undo
      If it's not either of us, tell me who are we fooling?

      Together we're one, but apart tell me
      Who are we fooling?

    • The lone woman stands in the turning December
      She's got ice on her lashes, white at her winter coat
      The trees stand like soldiers around her
      Dutiful wooden curse
      And the heart she feared frozen
      Still beats and still marches on

      Oh, Annie
      I will think of you each time I see the sun
      Didn't want a day without you
      But somehow I've lived through another one

      A gentlemen waits on a platform in a haze of gray and grief
      Now he's sold up his assets, starting over at 70
      The steam blasts like trumpets around him
      Salutes on the colonnade
      As he thinks to himself:
      "We're all waiting for our train to come"

      Oh, Annie
      I will think of you each time I see the sun
      Didn't want a year without you
      But somehow I've lived through another one

      Did you find it hard to breathe at first?
      Were you wounded and in disbelief at how much it hurt?
      Now the ache's still burning, but the world's still turning
      Isn't it?

      Oh, Annie
      I still think of you each time I see the sun
      Didn't want a life without you
      But here I am living one

    • Before a neon night's lighting I'm right beside you
      The fire in motion
      The fire in motion

      The desert sun sinking
      Sleepy and low
      But we're just waking
      We are waking

      River time is a mountain tonight
      Before tomorrow she flows on
      Carving valleys in the skin on our faces

      I am bright as the sun
      You are high as a kite
      We are daughters, sons, brothers and sisters tonight
      At Coachella
      Coachella

      Come on now darling, let's shake off these blues
      I'll let my hair out, you'll slip off your shoes
      I feel like a baby, newborn in the spring
      I'm setting down the sadness and I won't remember it

      When I'm bright as the sun
      And you are high as a kite
      And we are daughters, sons, brothers and sisters tonight
      At Coachella
      Coachella

      I'm a warm bleeding heart
      You're a generous soul
      And I love you though I'd never met you before
      To Coachella
      Coachella

      We are standing on the shore
      In the smoke, in the starlight
      On the edge of a human sea
      And the tide is in

      I am bright as the sun
      You are high as a kite
      We are daughters, sons, brothers and sisters tonight
      At Coachella
      Coachella

      I'm a warm bleeding heart
      You're a generous soul
      and I love you though I'd never met you before
      To Coachella
      Coaechella

      Oooh ooh oooh ooh

    • He got the droop of a fatherless child
      Almost imperceptible, one can't see it with the naked eye
      Oh but I can

      That cardboard lady in the corner store
      Her sparkle is all painted on
      Six no-good men took her shine and more
      Left her youth near Sausalito

      Oh it's humourless and comical at once
      Always being a stranger wearing the last town's dust
      Oh it's humourless, it's humourless

      They look me over, one up and one down
      I can tell they're wondering who my people are
      I say I'm new in town
      I know it's gonna take a while

      Oh it's humourless and comical at once
      Always being a stranger wearing the last town's dust
      Oh it's humourless, it's humourless

      I speculate and browse the duraflame
      Winter in the west coast cool
      Out by the sea where no one knows my name

      I'm on the road like Jack Kerouac
      Like Jack, Jack Kerouac
      Like Jack, Jack Kerouac
      Like Jack, Jack Kerouac

    • We're adrift on a sailboat
      My love is the sea
      Yours is the horizon
      Constant and steady

      You set my limbs locked hard afloat
      Lifted my lonesome sails
      The tide is out, the moon is high
      We're sailing

      Darling, your love is healing
      It makes the bitter sweet
      Warms the winter to spring again
      Secures the colds defeat

      We're cutting anchor
      Casting out into the glorious deep
      The tide is out, the moon is high
      We're sailing

      Then we've succumbed to decrepitude
      Still our love will remain in it's youth

      The tide is out, the moon is high
      We're sailing
      We're sailing
      We're sailing

    • It was the year
      The crows and the locusts came
      The fields drained dry the rain
      The fields are bleeding

      "Daddy don't cry, it'll be alright"
      She puts some water on the wound
      And hums a little tune
      While her courage puddles on the ground
      Pooling, pooling

      See the murder and the swarm descend
      And the night is getting thick
      The moon telling her tricks
      She'd betray her every time

      It was the year
      The crows and the locusts came
      The fields drained dry the rain
      The fields are bleeding

      It was the age
      The foxes came for the fields
      We were bleeding as we bowed to kneel
      And prayed for mercy, prayed for mercy

      The rumble is low and the heat is high
      Got a feeling that there's rain out in the oil black sky
      Gonna chase away the devil when that sun does rise
      Gonna plead the blood
      Gonna plead the blood

      It was the year
      The crows and the locusts came
      The fields drained dry the rain
      The fields are bleeding

      It was the age
      The foxes came for the fields
      We were bleeding as we bowed to kneel
      And prayed for mercy, prayed for mercy

      She limps on up to the top of a mount
      Looks at the faltered harvest
      Feels her sweat in the ground and the burn in her nose
      And the knowing in her guts
      Something's still gonna grow
      She ain't leaving 'till it does.

      What can wash away my sin
      Nothing but the blood...
      What can make me whole again
      Nothing but the blood...

    • Cheers to the furrows on our brow
      To each hard-won victory
      Cheers to the losses that grew us up
      Killed our pride, and filled our cup

      Cheers to the friendships well worn in
      That time nor distance alter
      Here's to the sleepers we'll see again
      Find company in memoria

      Open your mouth and sing out your song
      Life is short as the day is long
      I can't leave you my body
      But I'll leave you a tune
      This is my legacy
      Cheers to you

      Cheers to the passing of our youth
      And the death of lust not one day
      A toast to the lessons not yet learned
      And to the trials that will teach them

      Open your mouth and sing out your song
      Life is short as the day is long
      I can't leave you my body
      But I'll leave you a tune
      This is my legacy
      Cheers to you

      Open your mouth and sing out your song
      Life is short as the day is long
      I can't leave you my body
      But I'll leave you a tune

      Open your mouth, and sing out your song
      Life is short as the day is long
      I can't leave you my body
      But I'll leave you a tune

      This is my legacy

    • Come, tell me your trouble
      I'm not your answer
      But I'm a listening ear

      Reality has left you reeling
      All facts and no feeling
      No faith and all fear

      I don't know why a good man will fall
      While a wicked one stands
      And our lives blow about
      Like flags on the land

      Who's at fault is not important
      Good intentions lie dormant
      And we're all to blame

      While apathy acts like an ally
      My enemy and I are one and the same

      I don't know why the innocents fall
      While the monsters still stand
      And our lives blow about
      Like flags on the land

      I don't know why our words are so proud
      Yet their promise so thin
      And our lives blow about
      Like flags in the wind

      Oh oh oh oh

      You who mourn will be comforted
      You who hunger will hunger no more
      All the last shall be first
      Of this I am sure

      You who weep now will laugh again
      All you lonely, be lonely no more
      Yes, the last will be first
      Of this I'm sure

      I don't know why the innocents fall
      While the monsters stand
      I don't know why the little ones thirst
      But I know the last shall be first
      I know the last shall be first
      I know the last shall be first

    • Well the sun is surely sinking down
      But the moon is slowly rising
      And this old world must still be spinning 'round
      But I still love you

      So close your eyes
      You can close your eyes it's alright
      I don't know no love songs
      I can't sing the blues anymore
      But I can sing this song
      You can sing this song when I'm gone

      It won't be long before another day
      We're gonna have a good time
      No one's gonna take that time away
      You can stay as long as you like

      So close your eyes
      You can close your eyes it's alright
      I don't know no love songs
      I can't sing the blues anymore
      But I can sing this song
      You can sing this song when I'm gone
