Lifen-ing


A hand upon my forehead
A joke and then a laugh
Waking up in your arms
A place to call my own
  
This is all I ever wanted from life
...
  
Ireland in the World Cup
Either North or South
The fan club on the jukebox
The birds and yes the bees
  
This is all I ever wanted from life
...
  
Words of reassurance
But only if they're true
Just some simple kindness
No vengeance from the Gods
  
This is all I ever wanted from life
...
  
To share what I've been given
Some kids eventually
And be for them what I've had
A father like my dad
  
This is all I ever wanted from life
This is all I ever wanted from life
This is all I ever wanted from life

Eliot Smith - between the bars

     drink up, baby, stay up all night
    the things you could do, you won't but you might
    the potential you'll be, that you'll never see
    the promises you'll only make
  
    drink up with me now and forget all about the pressure of days
    do what I say and I'll make you okay and drive them away
    the images stuck in your head
  
    people you've been before that you don't want around anymore
    that push and shove and won't bend to your will
    I'll keep them still
  
    drink up, baby, look at the stars
    I'll kiss you again between the bars where I'm seeing you
    there with your hands in the air, waiting to finally be caught
  
    drink up one more time and I'll make you mine
    keep you apart deep in my heart separate from the rest
    where I like you the best and keep the things you forgot
  
    the people you've been before that you don't want around anymore
    that push and shove and won't bend to your will
    I'll keep them still
Eliot Smith

You will make it

  Go to bed everything's alright
  Don't know the whole world's changing
  As you sleep through the night
  Wake up slowly and it's a different world
 
  Hear the news and the floods begin
  Screams so loud but only felt within
  Heart is shattered
  The pieces can't be found
 
  I feel your pain, I wrote this  song for you, for you
  You will make it, you will make it through
  I promise you, he would want you to
 
  Months go by, still living in a daze
  Don't know what you've done
  With the last seven days
  Soul is numb and life is like a dream
 
  Helping hands but you push them away
  How could they understand
  Don't wanna share your pain
  Afraid to heal, 'cause that would be goodbye
 
  I feel your pain, I wrote this song for you, for you
  You will make it, you will  make it through
  I promise you, she would want you to
 
  Olele Olele Ubaba
 
  One day sunlight hits a photograph
  And it makes you smile
 
  The memories dance around you now
  And they make you smile
  You're not alone
  You'll never be
  Just like the stars
  They oversee
  And they whisper to you
  You're still, you're still,
  You're still, you're still alive
 
  I feel your pain, I wrote this song for you, for you
  You will make it, you will make it through
  I promise you, they would want you to
 
  Do not stand at my grave and weep
  I am not there I do not sleep
  I am a thousand winds that blow
  I am the diamond glints on snow
  I am the sun on ripened grain
  I am the gentle autumn rain
  When you awaken in the morning's hush
  I am the swift uplifting rush
  Of quiet birds in circled flight
  I am the soft stars that shine at night
  Do not stand at my grave and cry
  I am not there; I did not die

God Bless This Mess

    Daddy's in the hallway
    Hanging pictures on the wall
    Mama's in the kitchen
    Making casseroles for all
    My brother came home yesterday
    From somewhere far away
    He doesn't look like I remember
    He just stares off into space
    He must've seen some ugly things
    He just can't seem to say
      
    God bless this mess
    God bless this mess
      
    Got a job in town
    Selling insurance on the phone
    With Robert and Teresa
    And two con men from back home
    Everyone I call up doesn't have the time to chat
    Everybody is so busy doing this and doing that
    Something has gone missing 
      
    And it makes me kinda sad, oh
      
    God bless this mess 
    God bless this mess
    God bless this mess
      
    Heard about the day 
    that two skyscrapers came down
    Firemen, policemen
    And people came from all around
    The smoke covered the city 
    And the body count arise
    The president spoke words of comfort
    With tears in his eyes
    Then he led us as a nation 
    Into a war all based on lies, oh
      
    God bless this mess
    God bless this mess

Twenty Years

    There are twenty years to go
    And twenty ways to know
    Who'll wear, who'll wear the hat
  
    There are twenty years to go
    The best of all I hope
    Enjoy the ride
    The medicine show
  
    Thems the breaks
    For we designer fakes
    We need to concentrate on more than meets the eye
  
    There are twenty years to go
    The faithful and the low
    The best of starts, the broken heart, the stone
  
    There are twenty years to go
    The punch drunk and the blow
    The worst of starts, the mercy part, the phone
  
    And thems the breaks
    For we designer fakes
    We need to concentrate on more than meets the eye
  
    Thems the breaks
    For we designer fakes
    But it's you i take, cause you're the truth, not I
  
    There are twenty years to go
    A golden age I know
    But all will pass will end too fast you know
  
    There are twenty years to go
    And many friends I hope
    Though some may hold the rose
    Some hold the rope
  
    That's the end - and that's the start of it
    That's the whole - and that's the part of it
    That's the hide - and that's the heart of it
    That's the long - and that's the short of it
    That's the best - and that's the test in it
    That's the doubt - the doubt, the trust in it
    That's the sight - and that's the sound of it
    That's the gift - and that's the trick in it
  
    You're the truth, not I, you're the truth, not I
    You're the truth, not I, you're the truth, not I
  
    You're the truth, not I, you're the truth, not I
    You're the truth, not I, You're the truth, not I.

Slow Show

    Standing at the punch table swallowing punch
    canít pay attention to the sound of anyone
    a little more stupid, a little more scared
    every minute more unprepared
  
    I made a mistake in my life today
    everything I love gets lost in drawers
    I want to start over, I want to be winning
    way out of sync from the beginning
  
    I wanna hurry home to you
    put on a slow, dumb show for you
    and crack you up
    so you can put a blue ribbon on my brain
    god Iím very, very frightening
    Iíll overdo it
  
    Looking for somewhere to stand and stay
    I leaned on the wall and the wall leaned away
    Can I get a minute of not being nervous
    and not thinking of my dick
    My leg is sparkles, my leg is pins
    I better get my shit together, better gather my shit in
    You could drive a car through my head in five minutes
    from one side of it to the other
  
    I wanna hurry home to you
    put on a slow, dumb show for you
    and crack you up
    so you can put a blue ribbon on my brain
    god Iím very, very frightening
    Iíll overdo it
  
    You know I dreamed about you
    for twenty-nine years before I saw you
    You know I dreamed about you
    I missed you for
    for twenty-nine years
