MR. SMOOTH TALKER On the corner of Tin Pan Station Where the streetlights shine in the sky If you’re quiet and listen closely You can hear all the women cry If you ask them about their sorrow If you wonder why they despair You need only look at the counter See the silhouette standing there Hey, Mr. Smooth talker Did you swallow your silver tongue? Did your lady finally leave you When she noticed what you’ve become? Hey, Mr. all-nighter Did she stand you up at the bar? Did you have one affair too many? Did you take just one step too far? Your avenues of deception Are simply works of art But the pinstripes that you’re wearing Mold a cage around your heart Many times other fellas asked you What’s the secret to your success? But underneath your rugged looks There’s only emptiness Hey, Mr. Smooth talker Did you swallow your silver tongue? Did your lady finally leave you When she noticed what you’ve become? Hey, Mr. all-nighter Did she stand you up at the bar? Did you have one affair too many? Did you take just one step too far? What’s come over old Mr. Charming? Lately he doesn’t seem all there Can’t you see the way he’s been staring At the girl with the golden hair? Now he’s stumbling, chasing shadows And gazing at stars above Oh Mr. Smooth talker did she really put you under? Did you finally fall in love? Hey, Mr. Smooth talker Did you swallow your silver tongue? Did your lady finally leave you When she noticed what you’ve become? Hey, Mr. all-nighter Did she stand you up at the bar? Did you have one affair too many? Did you take just one step too far? Too far…

LEAKY FAUCET There’s a hole in my heart And a leaky faucet in my eye Oh, I’ve been unraveling Since you hung me out to dry Tell me time and time again that Things will get better I should pull myself together But I fall apart no matter how I try There’s an impatient love hanging over my heart And a leaky faucet in my eye I’m so lovesick baby But the antidote is one of a kind My heart has rusted hollow And my veins are full of iodine My blood ices over as my body’s getting older But my loneliness won’t ever seem to die There’s an impatient love hanging over my heart And a leaky faucet in my eye I’d shut my mouth forever If that’s what it takes to bring you home You know I’d give up everything To save me from a life all on my own But hope grows weaker My despair grows even deeper Because all I care about is you and I There’s an impatient love hanging over my heart And a leaky faucet in my eye

BLUE CANDLEFLAME Blue as the bottom of a candle flame at a table set for one The bottle’s empty once again, Love’s reflection in my eye It’s faded to gray and flickered away, Still I wait, lingering hope I sustain Oh I'm blue as the bottom of a candleflame Beautiful memories of a summers day We danced through every color, loving every shade I gave everything away, you took it willingly, but then you left, and left me empty now here I am, my only company and I'm Blue as the bottom of a candleflame Now the wick is burning low
That time of night has come again when I’ll be heading home I’d hoped that you knew I’d be waiting for you But it seems all of my hopes are in vain 'Cause I’m blue as the bottom of a candleflame

GET OUT Last night was more than alright Baby I got high on you I hate to say I’m afraid you can’t stay Baby I’ve got things to do Oh no sir, I don’t wanna be your girl I think you misunderstood So go on now, get your ass out of town Like a good one nighter should All I’m saying is Get out Out my bed, don’t mean shit what you said Cause you don’t mean shit to me Go on, walk, said enough with that talk You won’t win my sympathy So no more teases and baby pleases I’ve been hurt enough to know It’s better now to get rid of the seed Before it gets a chance to grow All I’m saying is Baby get out Oh all I’m saying is Baby get out

WILDFIRE Your lovin' lit me up like a late October tree You made me weak, took my sleep and stole my dignity There was so much heat I was in disbelief I said baby how can this be? But I began to choke in the thickening smoke and it started to get to me You’re a wildfire, but baby I believe now you’ve burnt me out An electric wire, but you don’t shock me no more And I gave you love, I guess it's more than you could take, yeah I must have been mistaken 'cause now I’m cryin’ on the floor Watching the flames grow higher You’re my wildfire The lies spread far, the fuel ran low, I saw it in your eyes You knew my fuse was getting short and you had to move on sometime So I tried to tell myself I wasn’t gonna play that game But a sigh and a kiss I couldn’t resist drew me back into the flame You’re a wildfire, but baby I believe now you’ve burnt me out An electric wire, but you don’t shock me no more And I gave you love, I guess it's more than you could take, yeah I must have been mistaken 'cause now I’m cryin’ on the floor Watching the flames grow higher You’re my wildfire Summer came around but the flowers won’t bloom The earth is drier than sand Feel the salt stingin’ in my wounds I swear I’ll never love again Now my heart is just a piece of charcoal in my hand You left nothin’ but destruction baby can’t you understand You’re a wildfire, but baby I believe now you’ve burnt me out An electric wire, but you don’t shock me no more And I gave you love, I guess it's more than you could take, yeah I must have been mistaken 'cause now I’m cryin’ on the floor Watching the flames grow higher You’re my wildfire You were my life but now you’re nothing more than a empty desire You’re my wildfire

SHOULDERS Please, let your shoulders down Lay your head in my hands Help me to show you how to open up, understand that I can't heal you 'til you're ready to lay down your guard You don't have to prove how strong you are Please baby Give me the real you Soft and warm Sweet and kind Don't you know that life is short? So take your work, Take it off your mind How can I know who you are when you're pushing me away? How can three words be so hard to say? I love you, baby I do I love you, please love me too I love you, baby I do I love you, please love me too

DESERT WATER Desert water, hiding deep underground, Aren't you lonely so far from the sea? Won't you trickle towards this lonely traveler? Wash away, wash away my misery Then the valley will echo with beautiful sound Fresh with life like our love used to be and pure joy will bring the clouds to crying Desert water rain down on me Desert water, underneath that hot, hot sand, Most precious of all rarities So clear, so cold, so hard to hold Wash away, wash away with me please Then the valley will echo with beautiful sound Fresh with life like our love used to be and pure joy will bring the clouds to crying Desert water rain down on me Desert water rain down on me Desert water rain down on me

SIP FROM THE BOTTLE For a sip from the bottle I traded my cares A young girl in the cabinet under the stairs In an instant I knew the solution was there For a sip from the bottle I traded my cares For a sip from the bottle I traded my gold Losing honey and bread for the debt that I owed But it was worth all the courage a belly could hold For a sip from the bottle I traded my gold For a sip from the bottle I traded my friends Though I'd swear not to beg, steal or borrow for ends Every morning they'd find they'd been lied to again For a sip from the bottle I traded my friends For a sip from the bottle I traded my man I finally eroded my rock down to sand when the jewels on the bar outshone my wedding band For a sip from the bottle I traded my man For a sip from the bottle I traded my youth In pursuit of the blackness to hide from the truth Twenty years swept away by the one hundred proof For a sip from the bottle I traded my youth Now I've traded it all and I still don't know why Through the hospital curtain I hear mother's cries But I can't bear the shame or the pain or suffering dry For a sip from the bottle I'll trade my life

BABY I FUCKED UP Baby I fucked up learned the hard way how much I need your love And I'm sorry I neglected away your trust just 'cause I was afraid I said now baby you were right Every wall I built around myself I'm tearing it down tonight no more copouts, no more that's just who I am I'm ready to listen to change I had to be goddamn stone-cold crazy Drunken with pride, out of my head 'Cause I'd give years off of my life baby, For one more minute together I said baby I'm all yours Took some time to notice I was capital I immature Now I realize it's time to grow up Please forgive me baby so it won't be the last time Baby, baby, baby, oh, Maybe a little bit Baby I… Baby I fucked up

UNDERGROUND RAILROAD Classic love story, isn't it? Well, not if we let society decide Baby I'm not sorry that we met I'm only sorry that we have to hide So how can we prove that's it's not a choice? Well just look at the consequence at hand Deprived of identity, stripped of our voices Their moral lines drawn in our sand So history repeats itself again Girl we're riders on the underground railroad Look both ways, okay, kiss If the others think that we're standing too close Don't expect a slap on the wrist They're gonna put us on the blacklist I just wanted to sing for you so why do I have to pronoun change? but dammit when did it get so political? can't we just be lovers without the parade? 'Cause I don't have patience for markered-up cardboard and I don't want a flag to wave I just want to hold hands without fear or defiance Don't force me to choose between closet or crusade I don't wanna ride on the underground railroad look both ways, okay, kiss if the others think that we're standing too close don't expect just a slap on the wrist They're gonna put us on the blacklist Unjust social pressures, pissed off family members Discriminating employers, crooked lobbyists and lawyers Conservative christian talk shows exodus international Our love is right as rain it's their hatred that's unnatural and girl I can't take it no more I'm not gonna ride on the underground railroad Look both ways, okay, kiss If the others think that we're standing too close I don't give a damn if they're pissed They better mind their own damn business

SOMEHOW DID YOU KNOW How did you know I needed you when I did not know myself? How did you know I wanted you, though I cried for someone else? I never meant to hurt you but I imagine that you know Somehow did you know, somehow How did you know on the other side the grass would be brown? How did you know then the cats away, I'd be afraid to make a sound? You let me bitch and moan I guess you knew Id come around Somehow did you know, somehow How did you know I'd try to scare you with words that weresnt true? How did you know to ignore me though I blamed you for my blue? It's true I meant to fight you, but I never thought you'd win Some how did you know, somehow How did you know I needed you when I did not know myself? How did you know I wanted you though I cried for someone else? It's true I meant to fight you, but I never never never never thought you'd win Ooh somehow, somehow you beat me baby I never meant to hurt you, but I imagine that you know Somehow you always know

READ ME A STORY Mama will you read me a story? Can I pick out the book? Rohl Dahl or Eric Carle, If I'm good can we read them all? Mama can you knit me a sweater to keep me warm in this cold cold weather? I need you more than ever, so mama please be strong How did I grow up, leave home and never notice the change? All those little things you did that made me who I am today And how do I show you I care and that I'll always be there for you No matter what we go through? Mama tell me do you remember brushing the knots out of my hair? you told me not to rush, better hurry up cause the yellow bus is almost here Mama I want you to get better I wish that I could come back home Cause I need you more than ever Oh, mama please be strong How did I grow up, leave home and never notice the change? All those little things you did that made me who I am today and how do I show you I care and that I'll always be there for you No matter what we go through? Mama please be strong so you can read me a story
