Live At Red Rocks - 2001
Out on the range The quiet, endless still Where the wild S.S.I Whispers from these hills It's a petrified forest Trailer parks and fords And there ain't no goin' back Rodeo girl Saddle up There's no more credit in this bank Try your luck Up in the East Down in the West Hold on tight To the pony that you love the best There's a medicine at the gate And a number on your back And this world is al..
It's Like This - 2000
after closing time at the country fair i detect the el supremo in the room at the top of the stairs well i've been around the world and i've been in the washington zoo and in all my travels as the facts unravel i've found this to be true while the poor people sleepin' with the shade on the light while the poor people sleepin' all the stars come out at night while the poor people sleepin' with..
Ghostyhead - 1997
Low tide tonight, low tide little yellow town Green life teems up from the underground Glows in the dark, sifts the sands of garbage Reach hard in for the ragged star fish And only her lipstick bleeds, And the color seeds into all your paint by number schemes What was yellow, what was white, what was day, what was night? And now in soft detective voices the past rises And follows you in shapes..
Traffic From Paradise - 1993
Diamond eyed, like Las Vegas never seen the sea where the river bed runs dry she closes his eyes puts her ear to his shirt and listens to the water The light is red she looks in the mirror the wind has stopped he can't hear her She stops in a bar apparently, she's unhurt and with a little bit of change she washed her wings in the dirt the bar is filled with angels cuz the world is turned upsid..
Naked Songs - 1995
We will fly Way up high Where the cold wind blows Or in the sun Laughing having fun With the people that she knows And if the situation Should keep us separated You know the world won't fall apart And you will free the beautiful bird That's caught inside your heart Can't you hear her? Oh she cries so loud Casts her wild note Over water and cloud That's the way it's gonna be, little darlin' We'..
Pop Pop - 1991
The very thought of you makes My heart sing, Like an April breeze On the wings of spring And you come to me all your splendor, My one and only love The shadow's fall and spread their Mystique charms in the hush of night, While you're in my arms. I feel your lips, so warm and tender, My one and only love The touch of your hand is like heaven. A heaven that I've never known The blush on your che..
Girl At Her Volcano - 1983
I used to visit all the very gay places Those come-what-may places I used to visit all the very gay places Where one relaxes on the axis of the wheel of life To get the feel of life From jazz and cocktails. The girls I knew had sad and sullen gray faces With distingue traces That used to be there -- You could see where they'd been washed away By too many through the day Twelve o'clock tales Th..
The Magazine - 1984
There are wounds that stir up the force of gravity A cold that will wipe the hope from your eyes Young girl standing underneath the "L" train Standing there, watching the trains go by ... You think that nobody knows where you are, girl You think that nobody knows how this feels Alone, in a world of your own There you are girl The small things float To the top of gravity Gravity I'm telling you..
