I can't come out to find you
I don't like to go outside
They can't turn off my feelings
Like they're turning off a light

Fancy poultry parts sold here,
Breasts and thighs and hearts.
Backs are cheap and
Wings are nearly
Free.

First thing every morning that I do,
Is start missing you

Some broken hearts never mend,
Some memories never end,
Some tears will never dry,
My love for you will never die

It aches, in every bone
I'll die alone, but not for you

My eyes don't need to see. That ugly thing,
I know it's me, you fear

Last night, I turned out the lights, lay down and thought about you
I thought about the way that it could be
Two O'clock, wonderin' what I'm doin' here alone without you
So I close my eyes and dream you're here to me

And I woke up in love this morning, I woke up in love this morning
Went to sleep with you on my mind
Yes, I woke up in love this morning, I woke up in love this morning
Went to sleep with you on my mind


Do dreams come true, well if they do, I'll have you
Not just for a night, but for my whole life through

I woke up in love this morning, I woke up in love this morning
Went to sleep with you on my mind
And I woke up in love this morning, I woke up in love this morning
Went to sleep with you on my mind

What a beautiful face
I have found in this place
That is circling all round the sun
What a beautiful dream
That could flash on the screen
In a blink of an eye and be gone from me
Soft and sweet
Let me hold it close and keep it here with me

Claire had all but given up
When she and Edwin fell in love
She touched his face and shook her head
In disbelief she sighed and said
In many dreams I've held you near
Now, at last, you're really here

Where've you been
I've looked for you forever and a day
Where've you been
I'm just not myself when you're away

This is the story of how we begin to remember
This is the powerful pulsing of love in the vein
After the dream of falling and calling your name out
These are the roots of rhythm
And the roots of rhythm remain

William Butler Yeats in jeans
Got up to play guitar and sing
In some joint in Mission Beach last night

At the door sat Tom Waits
In a pork pie hat and silver skates
Jugglin' three collection plates
Jesus Christ



Townes Van Zandt standin' at the bar
Skinnin' a Hollywood movie star
Can't remember where he parked his car
Or to whom he lost the keys

He's full of angst and hillbilly haiku
What's a poor Ft. Worth boy to do
Go on rhyme somethin' for em' man
Show him how you really feel



Ain't no money in poetry
That's what sets the poet free
I've had all the freedom I can stand
Cold dog soup and rainbow pie
Is all it takes to get me by
Fool my belly 'til the day I die
Cold dog soup and rainbow pie



Ginsberg and Kerouac
Shootin' dice and playin' Ramblin' Jack's
Guitar with the cowboy paintin' pickguard on it

And they sat in the back and drank for free
And they rhymed orange with Rosalie
Now there's a pride of lions to draw to​

Bite my tongue
And I won't say a word against anyone
But I don't wanna get my fingers wet
Unless it's an accident

I fell out on the street
Now I'm watching my shoes and I grit my teeth
But I don't have to look that way
If I had half a say

It's about time
It's about time
Lick my lips
And I won't hear the end of this

On your knees a reassurance
Buy some time and come back for it
Before long, before it's gone

Patience is like bread I say
I ran out of that yesterday

So now I'm asking once again
To understand, to be my friend
Oh it hurts so bad to think you'd go
But still the same, I love you so

Don't toss us away
So thoughtlessly
It just ain't right
Oh can't you see?
I still love you
I want you to stay
Darlin please, don't toss us away

Oh darlin please
Don't toss us away

And all the roads we have to walk are winding
And all the lights that lead us there are blinding
There are many things that I
Would like to say to you but I don't know how

right behind you
But you see, it's not me
It's not my family
In your head, in your head, they are fighting
With their tanks, and their bombs
And their bombs, and their guns
In your head, in your head they are crying

Love endures, it clings away

When asked to leave, it begs to stay

Like the perfect song, at imperfect times

It's the way the chords struck with the rhymes


So let your troubles roll by...

This is the craziest party
That there ever could be
Oh, don't turn on the light
'Cause I don't want to see

Somebody spread the rumor that you had lost your life.

'Least that's the way I heard it, and what I told my wife

Now here you're showing up again and talk is getting' round,
and I can see that one of us will have to leave this town.

If you think that I want trouble, then you're crazy in the head.

'Cuz you're wanted by the police, and my wife thinks you're dead.

Well I've got thick skin and an elastic heart
But your blade it might be too sharp
I'm like a rubber band until you pull too hard
But I may snap when I move close
But you won't see me fall apart
'Cause I've got an elastic heart
