The Panhandler
I've got nothing to say
but you can pay me anyway
food for my family
I've still got bills to pay
and they won't go away
I've lost control of my mind
it keeps me in time
is this my time on the breadline
how did I get here
at the corner of this freeway
on the edge of this city
no time to wonder
if I don't get paid for nothing
I'll die for lack of something
and what did I hear
you're expecting some philosophy
for a quarter's worth of beer
you'll feel better
and that's why I'm here
I walk into the morning
with no fear for the future
and you won't catch me inside
'cause I'm legitimate
and now I give a damn
I'm gonna sit on your street
and act real meek
you just act like you know me
how did I get here
on the corner of third street
in the shelter of this bookstore
I want you all here
so you know I'm not pretending
I've a halfway act for real
you'll feel better
you'll feel better if it's bitter then it's easy
it's harder to be joyful
you'll feel better
'cause that's why I'm here
you'll feel better
because it's easy
you'll feel better
because it's easy

I'm leaving home (I'm leaving home).
I'm going home (I'm going home).
I'm leaving the fire (I'm going home).
I'm going home (I'm leaving the fire).
I'm leaving the cold (I'm leaving the finery).
I'm leaving the finery (I'm leaving the cold).
I'm going home (Where it's warm).
To where it's warm (I'm going home).
A CONNECTION MADE WHAT DIRECTION IS THIS
TAKING OFF MAKE MOTION SICKNESS.I'm leaving home. I'm going home.
I'm leaving the love.
My hearts lost desire.
My tickets arriving.
Looks like I'm flying.
Atlantic crossing and it's time to be leaving.
One last time god give me one last time give me.
One last shot at it and I'll be no more Miller's man.
Then there'll be no more lying.
No more screaming and crying.
No more groping to feed off the wide open spaces.
WHEN YOU GET UP.
Don't know myself anymore.
Who was I last time
I'm just an airline ticket to an out of date place
I'm a slice of Americana lying under dust.
You mean you don't have any answers you say.
You're swimming upstream too you
Try to find some identity just by running the race.
A CONNECTION MADE WHAT DIRECTION IS THIS
TAKING OFF MAKES MOTION SICKNESS-WHEN YOU GET UP

Lullay, Thou little tiny Child.
By, by, lully, lullay.
O sisters, too, how may we do,
For to preserve this day;
This poor Youngling for whom we sing,
By, by, lully, lullay.
Herod the King, in his raging,
Charged he hath this day;
His men of might, in his own sight,
All children young, to slay.
Then woe is me, poor Child, for Thee,
And ever mourn and say;
For Thy parting, nor say nor sing,
By, by, lully, lullay

Hollow Victory
who shall I call tonight
which of my satellites
who'll be the fantasy of you and me
you're the detector ray
I'll be the king of may
no jumping in the pool
you know the rule
who'll be my queen for today
if nigel plays the tune
and I don't dance with you
there'll not be much else left to say
this bed's as soft as snow
dim the lights as we go
don't scratch my face on the way out
to who will I give this key
the key to this privacy
work the assembly like we're meant to be
and no hanging out for long
make no mistake I'm in my prime
but I just don't have the time to make you mine
who'll be my queen of the hour
let the old replace the new
just like in '82
there'll not be much else left to say
this bed's as soft as snow
dim the lights as we go
and don't scratch my face on the way out
who'll be my queen of the hour
let the old replace the new
just like in '82
there'll not be much else left to say
this bed's as soft as snow
dim the lights as we go
and don't scratch my face on the way

To Do You (John Lennon Says)
all I want to do is fly to you and lie with you darlin'
all I want to do is unpack my suitcase and lay here with you dear
all I want to do
yeah all I wanna do
all I wanna do is you
be one with you dear
it's easier to like science to play by the rules than follow the lions
it's hard to get happy but once you've found how it can be why settle for less
all I want to do
yeah all I wanna do
all I wanna do is you
be one with you dear
put your money before you she said
don't let a drop of rain get you down
there'll be no others before you he said
don't be afraid of all those lonely nights
once you've started you got to finish
get it over done in once john lennon says
forget others before me baby
I'm the one to mend your heart
your heart
your slightly fractured almost broken heart
all I really know is who I am and who I belong to
all we want to do is get down low
did the earth move for you dear
all I wanna do
all I wanna do
all that I wanna do
get down with you dear
all I wanna do
be one with you dear
all that I wanna do
get down with you dear
all I wanna do
be with you dear
all I wanna do
it's all I wanna do
all I wanna do
it's all I wanna do
all night long

Good Reason to fuck Me
you have good reason to doubt me
you have good reason to doubt my commitment
you have good reason to mock me
you have good reason to mock my pretension
you have good reason to fault me
you have good reason to fault my behaviour
you have good reason to question me
you have good reason to question my positions
but in the middle of the night
when everything is time my love's in you
in the middle of my eyes
where everything is light
my love is true
you have good reason to choose me
you have good reason to choose my affections
you have good reason to move me
you have good reason to move me to tearing
you have good reason to comfort me
you have good reason to comfort when I'm hurting
you have good reason to live with me
you have good reason to live with my humours
but in the middle of the night
when everything is time my love's in you
in the middle of my eyes
where everything is light
my love is true
I know you feel the way I do
nothing to hide nothing to fear nothing but you
everything heals when I'm with you
there's no need to lie
no need to fight
music plays softer when I'm with you
nothing to hide
nothing to fear
nothing to fear
nothing to fear
you have good reasons to lock me out
you lock me out
you have good reason to pick me up
you pick me up
nothing to hide
nothing to fear
nothing to hide
nothing to fear
nothing to hide
nothing to fear
nothing to hide
nothing to fear
nothing to hide
nothing to fear
nothing to hide
nothing to fear

She's Not There
Well, no one told me about her
The way she lied
Well, no one told me about her
How many people cried
But it's too late to say you're sorry
How would I know, why should I care?
Please don't bother trying to find her
She's not there
Well, let me tell you 'bout the way she looked
The way she acts and the color of her hair
Her voice was soft and cool, her eyes were clear and bright
But she's not there
Well, no one told me about her
What could I do?
Well, no one told me about her
Though they all knew
But it's too late to say you're sorry
How would I know, why should I care?
Please don't bother trying to find her
She's not there
Well, let me tell you about the way she looked
The way she acts and the color of her hair
Her voice was soft and cool, her eyes were clear and bright
But she's not there
SOLO
But it's too late to say you're sorry
How would I know, why should I care?
Please don't bother trying to find her
She's not there
Well, let me tell you about the way she looked
The way she acts and the color of her hair
Her voice was soft and cool, her eyes were clear and bright
But she's not there

Anon
I woke up this morning In my underwear
I felt pretty good, I had time to spare
And though it was raining, I had it all going on
I got lots to laugh at, I got plenty to share
Everything's gonna be all right One day at a time
Everything's gonna be all right One day at a time
And though it was raining, I had it all going on
I got lots to laugh at, I got plenty to share
I'm good at relaxing, I like to kick back
When I go to the steamroom, I get my hampton out
I get plenty of love from all the kids I meet
I get a sense of fun from them, Just can't be beat
I know a man with problems, So self-absorbed
He couldn't see nothing past the end of his world
His life was grey then, It was hard to see
But I got the number, I got the recipe
Everything's gonna be all right One day at a time
Everything's gonna be all right One day at a time
I get plenty of love from all the kids I meet
I get a sense of fun from them, Just can't be beat
anon...
I got respect for Jesus, He was a lovely Geez
As for Little Budda, I like Keanu Reeves
There are so many lessons, I like to mix them up
Like a temporary filling, A 24 hour cup
So what if life's what you wanted Or what if it's not
There's always time to turn around and Drive around the block
The grass is always greener And I don't mean to be crass but
Life is here when the light is here So make the most of it now
anon..
Everything's gonna be all right One day at a time...

__________________________
Down With U
All this time love's been a habit.
All this time I've had to have it.
No relationship has been adequate.
Getting intimate - It's been a no-no.
But now I'm free.
Free to go places.
Do you wanna marry me?
Soft white sheets.
Is this the dream sequence?
No hurry up and wait.
A crazy mention for a friend of mine.
He wanted to be here but he didn't have the time.
A crazy notion from an enemy.
She wanted to be here but she wouldn't fly.
I'm down with you, I'm into you yeah,
Attuned to you.
Intuitive you yeah.
I'm down with you, I'm into you yeah,
In tune with you.
In tune with you.
Bob's got scruples and Belle's hard work.
Meryl's in pieces but Richard's gotta work.
Syd's got sugarshock & Todd's in hock.
Pier's in Heaven now and Daddy's on top.
I'm down with you, I'm into you yeah,
Attuned to you.
Intuitive you yeah,
I'm down with you, I'm into you yeah,
In tune with you.
In tune with you.
All this time I've been an addict.
All these years I've been in panic.
All these tears steamy soap opera.
Now I'm free to live.
I'm down with you, I'm into you yeah,
Attuned to you.
Intuitive you yeah.
I'm down with you, I'm into you yeah,
In tune with you.
In tune with you.

Silent Skin
The silent skin you live in
The secret skin that never tears
The fibre sharp that never wastes
Wrap softly silent tissue
My thoughts are always with you
The dress that you debut in
Hides more than mystery play
It yields more treasure every day
It stalks its lovers to the grave
In lies and fragrant passing
My thoughts are everlasting
I am love in you, I am love
I am love in you, I am love
The silent skin you live with
The sacred light which glows from you
It sheds a light that no one knows
It leads me to your bed at night
In lies and scarlet slippers
And promises forever
I am love in you, I am love
I am love in you, I am love
The silent skinny dipping
Makes most of Hollywood nights
A shaperdess in cotton fields
The tightest margin to the end
In times of low retention
My dream is everlasting


__________________________
Fields Of Eden
The lights are low down Mexico way,
can you see them from here?
In indigo and azure flower,
can you see them glow?
It's rare for November,
now I know why I came so far.
Escaping, I was crazy then,
to think I could run away from,
The fields of Eden, the fields of England.
The fields of Eden, have a special air
(O how I miss them).
The fields of Eden, the fields of England,
the fields of Eden...
The mists are low on Venice Main Street,
can you feel it in the air?
The frosted roofs and auto landscapes,
a divine cemetery.
It's rare for November,
now I know why I came so far.
Escaping, I was crazy then,
to think I could run away from.
The fields of Eden, the fields of England.
The fields of Eden, mansions of despair.
The fields of Eden, the fields of England,
the fields of Eden...
Like Richard First I'm fighting hard
to keep a Lion's heart.
But this is no Christian holy war
(with god on my side).
One day in May I'll find my way,
I'll lie back and celebrate.
The morning, the dawning.
When it feels so good to be alive,
the sunrise rising on the day..

Spirit Of The Times
I've come from london town
but you know it really gets me down
I think I've done my time there
and I really don't want to die there
I've lived in paris france

black roadster on the driveway
I thought I had arrived
it's my life
the spirit of my times
the zeitgeist
the spirit of my times

the spirit of the times
you could say I've been an island man
a rocky shoreline hard to land in india

my red eyes in time for sunrise
it's my life

American Muse
I was bleeding when I wrote this song for you
something blue
I was needing some attention
some affection
something to do
I was sleeping in my nightmare
when I awoke
I wanted you there
just to lie here
right beside me
something new
someone like you
you're my american muse
I tell myself I can have what it is I want
I tell myself that everyday
I tell myself I will have what it is I want
and baby I want you
soon you're leaving
won't be seeing much of you for a while
my love's leaving deep inside you
don't be scared
this love is rare
don't look for meaning in these reasons
just be grateful you were there
summer romance in november
just remember
