Man's Man

you're callused but you seem to care,
you laugh at the things I say.
hell I think I could try,
to be a memory in your life.
But Lord knows I've been,
pushing him away.
he always ends up winning anyways,
it's time to let the ego have a say.
I told him time again to put your feelings all above me,
it's just he'd rather hear you cry, than hear you say you love me.
Find the right girl, the right boy too.
Find the right me, the right you.
take pity on the human race,
take my eyes not my good taste.
you don't hate everybody now,
just America's bad taste.
And Lord knows I've been,
pushing you away.
Horoscopes for answers please,
a whore before but now I see my actions don't define me.
I'm existential ego free.  I'm waiting for the feels to leave,
still I'd rather hear you cry, than hear you say you love me.
Find the right girl, the right boy too.
Find the right me, the right you.
You're a man's man.  You're a man's man.
You're an ass man.  You're a tits man.
You don't ask you take what you need.  You're an alpha baby!
You take that girl in that picture that you see.
you deserve everything.. you're a man, man.  You're a man.
You're me.
Find the right girl, the right boy too.
Find the right me, the right you.

Beverly Hells

Will I be in town,
when hell swallows Beverly Hills.
Will you be around,
when I come to my senses and confess that I love you still

Hallelujah.
I can smile and nod my way through almost every situation.

Even you, even you have your eyes on something,
In control of your own world but king of nothing,
Your a prize with a catch, working on commission.
A traitor to the cause, all faith in the world but ya chose the wrong religion

So hallelujah, and hooray for you
You can bat your eyes through just bout every situation.

So aren't you happy, can't you see
How well things are going for me
Aren’t you happy, can you see how well things are going for me.

Well I'll be in town right,
Where else would I be?
And when hell swallows up all of us whole,
And you won't be anywhere in sight,
I'll lay here with Lucy and place bets on whose souls will be released from the night,
And listen to the low ballers bargain their hearts for a 2nd chance in the light.

Hallelujah, and hooray, for them.
They can beg and plead their way through every desperate situation

Belly

I've got a belly full of booze,
one thousand dreams.
I write words about youth,
and electric streets.

I was a helpless fool.
I didn't know when to leave.
And now I'm running to you,
but I'm fast asleep.

I'm so tired of wandering around.
I'm so tired of running around.

I've got a belly full of booze.
One thousand schemes.
I was an honest man,
but I fell for a dream.
Now I'm taking my love,
all my love, all of my love back with me.

I'm so tired of wandering around.
I'm so tired of running around.

I've got a belly full of booze.
It all seemed like a dream.
you said it wasn't supposed to be him,
no it should have been me.

I'm so tired of wandering around.
I'm so tired of running around.

Topanga

touch, starving the senses,
and patience, if you can hold off a little bit longer

when I wake up, when I lay down,
when I stay up, when I’m coming down,
it’s everything I don’t have.

lush, drowning your senses.
and patiently for Prince Charming to come.

When you wake up, when you lay down,
when you stay up, when you’re coming down,
it’s everything you don’t have.
but how you want it.

Now it’s too much.
Jading your senses.
we’re so used to the new,
that nothing feels like it’s changing,

when we wake up, when we lay down,
when we stay up, when we’re coming down,
it’s everything we already have.

I still want it.

All the Time

By the way at the edge of it all it feels like we do it for something,
on the edge of everything, it feels like the whole world, but maybe it’s nothing.
All my life,
bright as the stars in your eyes boy.
all my life,
hey now I wanted to go.

I want it all the time,
say it won’t show.
you worry all the time.
say it won’t show.

all my life,
it all depends on what we do at the end of the night,
all my life,
hey it seemed like a good a idea at the time
all my life,
when everyones crazy,
all my life,
hey man you wanted to go.

I want it all the time,
say it won’t show.
you worry all the time.
say it won’t show.

Shoulda Coulda

when you say, its our life,
and it's all you want right.

then you say, it's our time,
tell them that you want it now,
but it's all too much right.


when you say, its our life,
and it's all you want right.

then you say, it's our time,
tell them that you want it now,
but it's all too much right

you should have, you could have,
you would have, you should have.

and then you say, that it’s your life,
tell them that you want it now,
I should have known right.

Suddenly

Suddenly, I don't need your courtesy,
all of my hours, wandering.
Suddenly, I don't need your sympathy.
all of my power, wasted on you.

but you, you got a way

oh I, Oh I, Oh I could be yours,
ooowooo.  You fool.

Suddenly, time isn't on your side.
all of of your thoughts, spinning around your mind.

but you, you got your ways

Oh I, Oh I, Oh I could be yours,
you fool

Wanderer

Cool is the wanderer,
and sly.
beware of the wanderer,
And in the morning when you rise.
you wipe that evil right out of your eyes.
After the weekend we’re walking slow,
So much to tell you but you already know,
And if you were here there are things that I would say,
But you wouldn’t be here anyway.
Crazy lover, now I want you
Crazy love, oh how I want you
Crazy lover, now I want you
oh how my mother thinks its all alright,
worries me when she walks alone at night.
and you wouldn’t be here anyway.
the kids are all wasted, they’re driving here.
and by the morning they already know.
the wanderer kissed you, he held you here.
and by the morning I’m already gone.

Too Old

oh I wanted to fool you,
but I’m too old for rock n’ roll.
oh you’ll see right through me
ya I’m too old for rock n’ roll
I’m so sweet, they’re so cynical, but you know that I want to.
I’m so slow I’m so so old.
I never know what to say.
you never know what to do.
words only get in the way.
I only wish you knew.
Oh I wanted to catch you.
but you’re too good for dancing too now
Oh i wanted to impress you.
I never what to say,
you never know what to do.
time only gets in the way.
now I’m makin it up to you.
Oh I totally would have blown you,
but your’e too old for rock n’ roll.

Souvenir

Have you seen her, that woman likes to walk.
have you seen her, hair tangled up in knots.
Oh have you seen her, walking that black tar road,
I tend to believe her, when she’s reciting her notes.
Don’t be afraid to settle now, She’s looking for the ways to teach you.
Don’t be leading my dreams down, she’s a souvenir of your stay.
I may never know, but when I hear her talk.
of stories so long, you could climb them.
And you’d love to meet her, bright eyes and button nose,
I feel sorry when I feel her, and the dreams she’ll never know.
But don’t be afraid to settle now, she’s looking for the ways to teach you,
Don’t be leading my dreams down, she’s a souvenir of your stay.
and I don’t plan to leave her, because she’ll keep my own dreams at bay.
Save the moment in time.
In a minute I’ll go.

Feels

There’s something on my mind but I won’t let it show.
try to keep my cool, but you already know.
a feelin that I get when ya here close to me,
tells me I should stay, oh I should see.
It feels right, you could stay for the night.
it feels right, here with you.
There’s something in your eyes that won’t let me leave.
Makes me believe in the things I want to believe.
There’s a reason that I wake in the middle of the night.
I could move slow, we could take our time
Closed our eyes, finally saw.
all you want, all you need. I could bring.

Tisk Tisk

oh I went walking, just to see.
holy water, pour it all over me.
playing one game, saying one thing, do another,
sayin one line, spending your time, with another,
playing these games, having no shame, makes me wonder.
who you love in the night may not be, who you love in the morning.
a fool is what you’ve taken me for.
never had money no I never had gold, but you’ll never find a lover like me oh no.
never had a voice never had a say, never had a love to make me change my ways.
you were talking, right over me.
tell them all now, that we’re meant to be.
playing one game, saying one thing,
sayin one line, spending your time,
makes me wonder are you with another.
never had money no I never had gold, but you’ll never find a lover like me oh no.
never had love no I never had money, never gave a damn unless you loved me.
shalalalalalalalalalallalalala lalala
I’ll be no widow, I’ll be no solemn vow.

Darkness of Love

Well I’d accept you at your best. And I’ve loved you at your worst. When you called I was the first that came. But there is a darkness to love I just can’t explain. A face like yours it still haunts me, Each time i fall for u its bittersweet, Cause there’s light in the beginning and the ending of love, But a darkness that lies in between. Picking oranges in the wild southern grove, We sang a song that convinced the harvest moon to glow Under a bright white moon we felt something change, But it was from the darkness of love, we knew we’d never be same Picking out clothes to wear, Laying them on your lap, And the thoughts in your head be what they may, There is a darkness to love I just can’t explain. any one whose loved has payed their debt, Whether they know it yet. I couldn’t afford your whole heart so I took what I could get. But there is a darkness to love that always collects. There is mystery in your eyes, It keeps me searching in the night, For its not the light that makes me afraid, But it’s the darkness in love that that won’t let me find my way. Had lovers in the past that were cold, U don’t talk to me that way no you don’t, But its not the perfect things in u I need, It’s the darkness in your love that keeps me comin back for more.
