A Little Love [top] 

I wish you’d smile for me

Show me I’m the only one

If it were up to me I’d

Be absurd and plant a tree

Just so I could carve your name in it.

It’d take a little love

It’d take a little love

It’d take a little love

To make a little

But I’ll enter your heart chamber by chamber

And I’ll build you a house of love brick by brick

And I’ll be the taste in your mouth flavour by flavour

And I’ll win the hand you hold

Trick by trick

I wish you’d smile for me

Show me I’m the only one for you

If it were up to me I’d

Take a mountain and build it in the sea

Just so I could carve your face in it.

It’d take a little love

It’d take a little love

Yeah it would, yeah it would.

To make a little

But I’ll enter your heart chamber by chamber

And I’ll build you a house of love brick by brick

And I’ll be the taste in your mouth flavour by flavour

And I’ll win the hand you hold

Trick by trick.

I’ll enter your heart, I’ll enter your heart

And I’ll build you a house, and I’ll build you that house

If you let me be

The one.

 

Anytime, Every Time [top] 

Every time she smiles at me I know

Life is full of mystery, melody and irony and hope

And Anytime she laughs at me I grow

Higher than the redwood tree

‘Cause i know that in her arms I’m home

And anytime I’m feeling like a stone

I close my eyes and realize she’s deep inside me

Seeping through my bones.

Wax poetic

Soon forget it

It happens all the time

So grab the shotgun shells

And be the Bonnie to my Clyde

Anytime, Every time.

Every time she touches me I glow

Lit up like a Christmas tree, burning brightly, firing up my soul

And any time she looks at me just so

A spell is cast it’s everlasting, I feel like a king upon his throne

So I think it’s time that I should let you know

Will you be my shining queen

Take this ring ‘cause I can’t rule alone.

Wax poetic

Soon forget it

It happens all the time

So grab those shotgun shells

And be the Bonnie to my Clyde

Anytime, Every Time

For all time yeah

Anytime, every time, anytime.

 

The Cactus Song [top] 

Might not have noticed

My Charming hostess it’s for you I wrote this tune

I see you calm and cozy I wonder if you’re lonely

On the sill where you’re in bloom

I didn’t miss ya

I’m sorry I can’t kiss ya though I’m stuck you like glue

I may have had others but I’ll never have another

though I fear you’ll leave me soon

Cactus in my room

I want to hold you but I can’t

Because the blood runs down my fingers

and into your pot of sand

Cactus in my room

Chlorophyll and blood don’t match

But every time I talk to you

Somehow I know you understand.

People call me crazy

No it doesn’t faze me we both know I’m no buffoon

You don’t make noise, go out with other boys

Or interrupt me while I croon

When I go la da da da da, la da da da da, la da da

If they offered money, I wouldn’t sell you no honey

Not even for the moon

All things aside the thing I can’t deny

Is you treat me better than others do

Cactus in my room

I want to hold you but I can't

Because the blood runs down my fingers

And into your pot of sand

Cactus in my room

Hell I know you're just a plant

but do you cry each time I leave the room

And do you know you’re all I have.

 

French Cigarettes [top] 

I walk into the place

$9 a beer

I see you at the bar and realize why I’m here

You’re tossing your hair

Like you’re in a parade

And lost your baton when you looked away

Everybody stares at you.

I’m mesmerized, I’m engulfed in your eyes

I want to explode and then run and hide

You’re taking small sips from painted on lips

I’m locked up in chains and totally whipped

and I need to talk to you

But it’s as tough

tough as it gets and you said:

“J’en ai besoin as tu des alumettes”

And I didn’t know what that meant.

But it’s as good, good as it gets

I’ve fallen for you

I’ve fallen for you and your French Cigarettes

If you left me now that’d be such a shame

I’m head over heels and I just learned your name

My heart it beats like a hummingbird’s

And beautiful is not a strong enough word.

You’re taking small sips from ruby red lips

I’m locked up in chains and totally stripped

and I need to make love to you right now, yes I do.

But it’s as tough

tough as it gets and you said:

“J’en ai besoin as tu des alumettes”

and now I know what that means

But it’s as good, good as it gets

I’ve fallen for you

I’ve fallen for you and your French Cigarettes

 

I don’t want to go to sleep [top] 

No, I don't want to go to sleep.

I'm overthinking everything

I wonder what tomorrow brings

So, I won't try to close my eyes.

I sleepwalk through another day

but what would Rip Van Winkle say?

But I'm no creep who counts his sheep

No, I don't want to go to sleep.

Narcolepsy's not for me

My pillow's my sworn enemy

I've been released from Dream Police

If there were ten days a week

Still no shuteye would I seek

So much to say before the grave!

No, I don't want to go to sleep.

Like Clockwork [top] 

Motorcycle neighbor I wonder why

You start your engine every night

at 3am and then proceed to drive on by

Like Clockwork

Girl who works at the coffee shop I wonder why

Your back tattoo of a Cicada always makes me smile

And the magical elixir, well it keeps me stopping by

Like Clockwork

Like Clockwork

And I don’t know what I’d do

Without you, in my life

The helpful head shop manager says that I should try

Some funky looking glassware, good for getting high

I say “I think I’ll pass this time around, but thanks for the advice”

Like Clockwork

The guy who works at the farmer’s market gives me hope

Selling soaps on Sunday morn to help me cope

He says I should try this new one it’s made of creosote,

Like Clockwork

Like Clockwork

And I don’t know what I’d do

Without you, in my life

My parents probably often wonder why

I call them each and every day just to tell them “hi”

It’s because I love to hear their voices and thank them for this life

Like Clockwork

Like Clockwork

And I don’t know what I’d do

No, I just don’t know what I’d do

No, I just don’t know what I’d do

Without you, in my life

Like Clockwork

Like Clockwork

Like Clockwork

 

Lucky Star [top] 

See my Lucky Star has thrown the snake eyes

And my piñata’s full of candy coated lies

So make my martini glass the super size

There seems to be nothing I can do

When everything I touch turns out blue

And everything I see screams of you

Tonight

See my honeybee has ditched the beehive

And I’m left here to sit and watch

Sit and watch these plants die

‘Cause there’s no point in even trying to get by

byeeyayeeyaeehaaah?

There seems to be nothing I can say

When even the rainbows they always end up gray

And you don’t love me but would you stay

Tonight

Everything’s gone wrong

Since you said so long

I wonder where you are

My Lucky Star

mhmmmhmmm

There seems to be nothing that I can do

Since the fortune cookies they all said we were through

Yet everything I am begs for you

Tonight

Oh tonight

Oh tonight

 

Machine [top] 

You turned me into a machine

You took me underwater in your yellow submarine

Trying to follow you,

Trying to follow you home.

I trot another lonely mile

I see policemen with their black and brutal sense of style

Trying to follow you,

Trying to follow you home.

I stole this shiny new guitar

And I paid the devil off so I could be a superstar

Trying to follow you,

Trying to follow you home.

But I’m a clone and I’m a drone and

You’re so far above me

But if I catch you there’s a chance that

We might fall in love

In love…

Do do do do

Do do do do do

You turned me into a machine (robot voice)

You took me underwater in your yellow submarine

Trying to follow you,

Trying to follow you home.

Behind these eyes you cannot see

I’ve had your photograph hardwired in my circuitry

Trying to follow you

Trying to follow you home

But I’m a clone and I’m a drone and

You’re so far above me

But if I catch you there’s a chance that

We might fall in love

In love…

Do do do do

Do do do do do

Do do do do

Do do do do do

You turned me into a machine

You turned me into a machine

You turned me into a machine.
