    I and Love and You

    I and Love and You

    Load the car and write the note
    grab your bag and grab your coat
    tell ones that need to know
    we are headed north

    One foot in and one foot back
    but its okay, to live like that
    so i cut the ties and i jumped the tracks
    for never to return

    brooklyn brooklyn take me in
    are you aware the shape im in
    my hands they shake my head it spins
    brooklyn brooklyn take me in

    when at first i learned to speak
    i used all my words to fight
    with him and her and you and me
    oh its just a waste of time
    its such a waste of time

    that women shes got eyes that shine
    like a pair of stolen polished dimes
    she asked to dance i said its fine
    ill see you in the morning time

    brooklyn brooklyn take me in
    are you aware the shape im in
    my hands they shake my head it spins
    brooklyn brooklyn take me in

    three words that became hard to say
    I and love and you
    what you were then i am today
    look at the things i do

    brooklyn brooklyn take me in
    are you aware the shape im in
    my hands they shake my head it spins
    brooklyn brooklyn take me in

    dumbed down and numbed my time and age
    you dreams to catch this world the cage
    the highway sets the travelers stage
    all exits look the same
    three words that became hard to say
    I and love and you
    I and love and you
    I and love and you

    January Wedding

    January Wedding

    She keeps it simple
    And I am thankful for her kind of loviní
    ĎCause itís simple

    No longer do we wonder if weíre together
    Weíre way past that
    And Iíve already asked her
    So in January weíre gettiní married

    Sheís talkiní to me with her voice
    Down so low I barely hear her
    But I know what sheís sayiní
    I understand because my heart and hers are the same
    And in January weíre gettiní married

    And I was sick with heartache
    And she was sick like Audrey Hepburn when I met her
    But we would both surrender
    True love is not the kind of thing you should turn down
    Donít ever turn it down

    I hope that I donít sound to insane when I say
    There is darkness all around us
    I donít feel weak but I do need sometimes for her to protect me
    And reconnect me to the beauty that Iím missiní
    And in January weíre gettiní married

    No longer does it matter what circumstances we were born in
    She knows which birds are singiní
    And the names of the trees where theyíre performiní in the mornin
    And in January weíre gettiní married
    Come January letís get married

    Head Full of Doubt/Road Full of Promise

    Head Full of Doubt/Road Full of Promise

    Thereís a darkness upon me thatís flooded in light
    In the fine print they tell me whatís wrong and whatís right
    And it comes in black and it comes in white
    And Iím frightened by those who donít see it

    When nothing is old, deserved or expected
    And your life doesnít change by the man thatís elected
    If youíre loved by someone youíre never rejected
    Decide what to be and go be it.

    There was a dream
    One day I could see it
    Like a bird in a cage a broke in and demanded that somebody free it
    And there was a kid, with a head full of doubt
    So I scream till I die and donít ask for those bad thoughts to find me out

    Thereís a darkness upon you thatís flooded in light
    In the fine print they tell you whatís wrong and whatís right
    And it flies by day and it flies by night
    And Iím frightened by those who donít see it

    And it Spread

    And it Spread

    There was light in the room
    Then you left and it was through
    Then the frost started in
    My toes and fingertips

    And it spread into my heart

    Then for I donít know how long
    I settled in to doing wrong
    And as the wind fills the sail
    Came the thought to hurt my self

    And it spread into my home
    And it spread
    And it spread into my soul

    Well there are no lines
    Separating the truth from the lies

    Then you came back from space
    With a brand new laugh and a different face
    You took my hand and held it up
    And shot my arm full of love

    And it spread
    And it spread into the world
    And it spread
    And it spread into the world

    The Perfect Space

    The Perfect Space

    I wanna have friends that I can trust,
    that love me for the man Iíve become not the man I was.
    I wanna have friends that will let me be
    all alone when being alone is all that I need.

    I wanna fit in to the perfect space,
    feel natural and safe in a volatile place.
    And I wanna grow old without the pain,
    give my body back to the earth and not complain.
    Will you understand when I am too old of a man?
    And will you forget when we have paid our debt
    who did we borrow from? Who did we borrow from?

    Okay part two now clear the house.
    The partyís over take the shouting and the people,
    get out!

    I have some business and a promise that I have to hold to.
    I do not care what you assume or what the people told you.
    Will you understand, when I am too old of a man?
    Will you forget when we have paid our debts,
    who did we borrow from? Who did borrow from?

    I wanna have pride like my mother has,
    And not like the kind in the bible that turns you bad.
    And I wanna have friends that I can trust,
    that love me for the man Iíve become and not the man that I was

    Ten Thousand Words

    Ten Thousand Words

    Ten thousand words swarm around my head
    Ten million more in books written beneath my bed
    I wrote or read them all when searchiní in the swarms
    Still canít find out how to hold my hands

    And I know you need me in the next room over
    But I am stuck in here all paralyzed
    For months I got myself in ruts
    Too much time spent in mirrors framed in yellow walls

    Ainít it like most people? Iím no different
    We love to talk on things we donít know about
    Ainít it like most people? Iím no different
    We love to talk on things we donít know about

    And everyone around me shakes their head in disbelief
    And says Iím too caught up
    They say young is good and old is fine
    And truth is cool but all that matters
    Is that you have your good times
    But their good times come with prices
    And I canít believe it when I hear the jokes they make
    At anyoneís expese except their own
    Would they laugh if they knew who paid?

    Ainít it like most people? Iím no different
    We love to talk on things we donít know about
    Ainít it like most people? Iím no different
    We love to talk on things we donít know about

    And after we are through ten years
    Of making it to be the most of glorious day dues
    Iíll come back home without my things
    ĎCause the clothes I wore out there I will not wear íround you
    And theyíll be quick to point out our shortcommings
    And how the experts all have had their doubts

    Ainít it like most people? Iím no different
    We love to talk on things we donít know about

    Kick Drum Heart

    Kick Drum Heart

    The footprints over the snow
    the fabric of all the lonely
    C-Covering only
    the fables and hands
    the rest is out in the cold
    holding the last of the season
    F-F-F freeziní Yeah

    My my my heart like a kick drum
    My my heart like a kick drum
    My my heart like a kick drum
    My love like a voice

    Weíre walkiní in to the fields.
    Weíre walkin in to the forest.
    The moon is before us.
    Up above
    Weíre holdiní hands in the rain
    S-sayiní words like I love you
    D-d-díyou love me? Yeah

    My my heart like a kick drum
    My my heart like a kick drum
    My my heart like a kick drum
    My my love like a voice

    Mother Mary heard us approaching her door
    Although we didnít make a sound.
    Thereís nothing like finding gold
    within the rocks hard and cold
    Iím so surprised to find more
    Always surprised to find more

    I wonít look back anymore
    I left the people that do
    Its not the chase that I love
    Its me following you

    Laundry Room

    Laundry Room

    Donít push me out,
    just a little longer
    Stall your mother,
    disregard your fatherís words.

    Close the laundry door,
    tiptoe across the floor
    Keep your clothes on,
    Iíve got all that I can take.
    Teach me how to use,
    the love that people say you made.

    Stop your parentsí car,
    I just saw a shooting star.
    We can wish upon it,
    but we wont share the wish we make.
    But i cant keep no secrets,
    I wish that you would always stay

    Last night I dreamt the whole night long,
    I woke with a head full of songs.
    I spent the whole day,
    I wrote em down but itís a shame.

    Tonight iíll burn the lyrics,
    cause every chorus was your name

    Break this tired old routine,
    and this time dont make me leave

    I am a breathing time machine,
    iíll take you on for a ride

    I'll With Want

    I'll With Want

    I am sick with wanting and itís evil and itís daunting
    How I let everything I cherish lay to waste
    I am lost in greed, this time itís definitely me
    I point fingers but thereís no one there to blame
    A need for something, now let me break it down again
    A need for something but not more medicine

    I am sick of wanting and itís evil how itís got me
    And every day is worse than the one before
    The more I have the more I think Iím almost where I need to be
    If only I could get a little more

    A need for something, now let me break it down again
    A need for something but not more medicine

    Something has me, oh something has me
    Acting like someone I donít wanna be
    Something has me, oh something has me
    Acting like someone I know isnít me
    Ill with want and poisoned by this ugly greed

    Temporary is my time, ainít nothing on this world thatís mine
    Except the will I found to carry on
    Free is not your right to chose
    Itís answering whatís asked of you
    To give the love you find until itís gone

    A need for something, now let me break it down again
    A need for something but not more medicine

    Something has me, oh something has me
    Acting like someone I donít wanna be
    Something has me, oh something has me
    Acting like someone I know isnít me
    Ill with want and poisoned by this ugly greed
    Ill with want and poisoned by this ugly greed
    Ill with want and poisoned by this ugly greed

    Tin Man

    Tin Man

    You canít be like me
    But be happy that you canít
    I see pain but I donít feel it
    I am like the old tin man

    Iím as warm as a stone
    I keep it steady as I can
    I see pain but I donít feel it
    I am like the old tin man

    I miss that, I miss that, oh, I miss that feeling of feeling

    I used to feel the sky around
    With happiness and joy
    I had news to give the wind
    To keep my cells and heart employed

    I felt people move around me
    I felt loneliness and shame
    Back then every day was different
    Now each moment is the same

    I miss that, I miss that, oh, I miss that feeling of feeling
    I miss that, I miss that, oh, I miss that feeling of feeling
    The feeling of feeling

    The wind above my face
    And carrying what it brings this way
    The feeling of feeling
    The minutes pass away
    And carrying what I do with them (Oh)
    Maybe bring me love or something else

    And so it goes, a man grows cold
    Some would say a man grows strong
    They say life only grows short
    I say the road only grows long

    But as long as thereís a road
    My feet will never touch the ground
    And if you wonít give my heart back
    Iíve no need to stick around

    I miss that, I miss that, oh, I miss that feeling of feeling (Yeah!)
    I miss that, I miss that, oh, I miss that feeling of feeling
    The feeling of feeling
    The feeling of feeling

    Slight Figure of Speech

    Slight Figure of Speech

    They say youíve got to lose a couple fights to win
    Itís hard to tell from where Iím sitting
    They say that this is where the fun begins
    I guess itís time that I was quitting

    A slight figure of speech
    I cut my chest wide open
    They come and watch us bleed
    Is it art like I was hoping now?

    They said "I hope that you will never change"
    I went and cut my hair
    They say "Donít take your business to the big time"
    I bought us tickets there

    A slight figure of speech
    I cut my chest wide open
    They come and watch us bleed
    Is it art like I was hoping now?

    What did you expect
    And what did you forget
    That to live you let go of me with each step
    It becomes a progression I wonít let regret manifest
    To aggression
    Are you to assess what Iíve been? What I am? Or become?
    Did you stop to accept how pathetically dumb
    It can be to
    Attack those around ícause youíre
    True to color, a town, a time, or a place?
    Itís not you, itís not mine
    And besides it is gone
    And you never will find it again
    But I donít want to fight
    I just ask let me be
    I wonít give the chance to be my enemy
    So go home
    Think it through

    A jet plane and a big idea
    I jump over the sea
    What ifs hot on my trail
    But that canít catch me, no

    A slight figure of speech
    I cut my chest wide open
    They come and watch us bleed
    Is it art like I was hoping now?

    It Goes On and On

    It Goes On and On

    I lost my fear in your arms
    I lost my tears in your car
    I lost my will in your candle-lit eyes
    and all my love in your yard

    Baby would you leave me if you knew that I was making it up?
    And underneath the love you got to wonder am I giving you up.

    No way am I
    It goes on.

    Violent is the motion in my heart and in my body and mind
    And silent is the feeling that I lost but Iím determined to find
    And love is but an ocean, unrealistic notion
    But I cling to her devotion and I let it pull me down to the floor

    It goes on, on, on, on
    It goes on, on, on, on
    It goes on, on, on, on
    It goes on, on, on

    I found my will in your car
    I caught my tears in your arms
    I found my self on that poor county drive
    and found my love in your yard

    OH! Baby would you leave me if you knew that I was making it up?
    And underneath the love you got to wonder am I giving you up.

    No way am I

    It goes on, on, on, on
    It goes on, on, on, on
    It goes on, on, on, on
    It goes on, on, on. It goes on, on, on.

    Incomplete and Insecure

    Incomplete and Insecure

    I havenít finished a thing since I started my life, I donít feel much like starting now.
    Walking now lonely has worked like a charm Iím the only one I have to let down.
    But watching you makes me think that that is wrong.
    I can go on with my insecure nature I can keep living off sympathy.
    I can tell all the people that all that sucks has a direct reflection on me.

    But watching you makes me think that that is wrong,

    What is important, whatís really important?
    Am I not to know by my name?

    Will I ever know silence, without mental violence
    Will the ringing at night go away?

    Itís up to you, my father, call on me.

    I havenít finished a thing since I started my life, I donít feel much like starting now
    I havenít finished a thing since I started my life, I donít feel much like starting now
    I havenít finished a thing since I started my life, I donít feel much like starting now
    I havenít finished a thing since I started my life, I donít feel much like starting now

    I havenít finished a thing since I started my life
    I havenít finished a thing since I started my life

    More of You

    Saying hello, holding your hand
    Babe can I ask, babe can I have
    More of, More of, More of, More of,
    More of, More of, More of, More of you, you

    Wondering what this life's all about
    But I can't see myself living without
    More of, More of, More of, More of,
    More of, More of, More of, More of you, you

    I get your number
    What will you say?
    I get your number
    With no kind of game
    I get your number
    I don't want to wait
    I get your number
    I call you today

    Out on the road hungry and tired
    No way to stop, nowhere to hide
    A booth in the corner, a place for the night
    I stood up to leave unsatisfied
    I cannot forget her, I promise I've tried
    I looked through the glass between me and the night
    I asked what it is, my reflection replies

    More of, More of, More of, More of,
    More of, More of, More of, More of you, you

    I get your number
    What will you say?
    I get your number
    With no kind of game
    I get your number
    I don't want to wait
    I get your number
    I call you today
