Stuck 04:15
I’m stuck On a bus, going north And I’m looking for love On a bus going north As if anyone ever found love On a bus going anywhere Looking for anyone Anyone to I’m stuck In a room, and I do admit I’m Still sometimes looking for you Tell me true Are you looking for me? Are you looking for me in Another skin Another - another woman Usually summer Is when I have fun And I find me a lover To string me along While the sky is blue While the sky is blue While the sky is blue I’m stuck On a book, and I just Can’t stop looking at These words they’re Giving me chills it’s Giving me chills And I’m wondering How you’re doing What you’re reading What you’re listening to Does it remind you of me Does it hurt when you’re reminded of me? Can I hurt you still? Can I hurt you still? Can I hurt you still one two three The sky is blue but not inside I got a heart could teach the wind to cry The sun is out, my friends are having fun But I don’t mind No I don’t mind No I never mind Since you’ve been gone

Another sundown Another day gone Another city another guitar and another song Maybe I'll get it right if you keep on doing me wrong Maybe I'll finally get right I'll finally get right Don't speak of heartache It's all been said before I know you are somewhere knocking on some other door Someone kind of like me who like me you will leave needing more Someone kind of like me is she kind of like me? Someone kind of like me Is she kinda like me? Rise up stars keep keeping on shining Pay no mind I'm just another girl crying Don't know how to work I don't know how to steal And when I look at you babe I really don't know how to feel When I look at you I don't smile right And then I try to frown and then it's fight or flight And then you turn around and we lock eyes And suddenly I've Lost another sundown

Waxwing 07:18
I told my friends you were a soulmate Like that means anything Like I know what it means Home for a funeral The first of its kind Sent you a photo of my friends sleeping in a pile And I wore yellow The email said "bright colors" I wore yellow And hoped I wouldn't be the only one Bobby hugged me after the service A little too hard and that's when the tears started I sobbed into his synthetic fleece Piled high and soft and black and deep I was the shadow of a waxwing slain I was the shadow of a waxwing slain It wasn't supposed to work out this way It wasn't supposed to work out this way But maybe I'm wrong Maybe it was Ashes to ashes Dust to dust Ashes to ashes Dust to dust Ashes to ashes (x2) My friend Tess was the most graceful thing you've ever seen Long and slender limbs and curly hair Slow to trust but it'd be hard to find a heart as pure as hers She let me in so much more than I deserved Then a truck crushed her bike Took her life And I've never met her mom before But she's folding her hands round mine And I love her And I love you And I love them all and I Know that everyone I've ever loved Is someday going to die Ashes to ashes Dust to dust Ashes to ashes (x4) And George says I don't mind Being uncomfortable if I'm Uncomfortable with someone Who makes me feel alive (x4?) I was the shadow of a waxwing slain I was the shadow of a waxwing slain It wasn't supposed to work out this way It wasn't supposed to work out this way But maybe I'm wrong Maybe it was Ashes to ashes Dust to dust It took me so damn long to find you Took me so God damned long Could have built a life together When we were still young But we were dumb when we were young Maybe it wouldn't have worked out Maybe I'd have lost you And never known how And I'd be missing you Be missing you right now

I am not your woman I'm your mirror And I become you isn't that what you wanted? Isn't that what we're going for? I am not a singer This is not my voice I'm a story that you Make up in your mind It's cold inside your mind I might just start a fire And look me over and over Take a picture take a picture It'll last longer than me Look me over and over Take a picture take a picture Maybe I can see me too As I'm singing about you I am not a boulder You can move me Oh come on move me Move me I am not a boulder You can move me with a flicker Of your long dark eyelashes Your long dark eyelashes

The Spanish from your lips Tastes like tomatoes on the vine Like a baby bird I’m pecking I’m drinking down that line You keep saying “No” But it ain’t no word I know Welcome to America, Pablo You say your heart is roto And your corazon is broke By some girl in Guanajuato Who couldn’t take a joke You say no hay espacio For an amor American Still I’m gonna love you best I can ‘Cause the Spanish from your lips Tastes like tomatoes on the vine Like a baby bird I’m pecking I’m drinking down that line You keep saying “No” But it ain’t no word I know Welcome to America, Pablo I keep my heart spoiled Always taking just what I want I know that nada it ain’t nada if it ain’t free Free to work for or to toil for Or to win over in song I think you’re really something, Pablo, don’t you see? The Spanish from your lips Tastes like tomatoes on the vine Like a baby bird I’m pecking I’m drinking down that line You keep saying “No” But it ain’t no word I know Welcome to America, Pablo I left my reason ages ago For a song you’ll never know It’s floating down some rio In Spain or Mexico And wander it will where water it spills You’ll find you and I’ll find me But Pablo could it be you’ve been Looking for me in ti? The Spanish from your lips Tastes like tomatoes on the vine Like a baby bird I’m pecking I’m drinking down that line You keep saying “No” But it ain’t no word I know Welcome to America, Pablo

Coyote 02:29
Coyote is in the kitchen where I Wait for it to speak the Silence is worse than the danger Speak you stranger Speak I know you wanna draw draw first blood but the Best part of me lies Behind those eyes please let me in press My palm to your cheek press My palm to your cheek press My As I'm still called Rosie you can Call me any- time I Smell sing think taste touch the same Language I still speak your Language I still speak your Language i still speak your Language I still Speak Coyote is in the kitchen where I Wait for it to speak the Silence is worse than the danger Silence is worse than the danger Silence is worse than the danger Speak you stranger Speak

The Wheel 04:21
Your eyes don’t see the same as my eyes Your tongue don’t taste the same as my tongue Your hands don’t work the same as my hands Don’t work the same as his hands Could use a little hand Sometimes I feel Like we’re strapped to the same wheel And it’s spinning Faster every day Funny, what could you want from me Call me honey, guess we’ll have to wait and see if it’s true As I grow old with you Maybe baby Your body wants my body Your brain it wants my brain How can I explain Your brain it wants my brain My brain it wants Lose yourself in me Don’t you know nothing comes for free I’m losing my mind Thinking all about you all the time Oh oh, all the time Oh oh, all the It’s over, you can go home it’s over It’s over, I mean it go away You don’t know me What else can I say? You don’t know me No no one can know me ‘Cause I’m not my body I am not my brain I am not my hands or my eyes or my tongue or my teeth or my lips or my face or my hair or my neck or my shoulders or my back or my breasts or my stomach or my waist or my hips or my sex or my legs or my knees or my ankles or my feet or my toes or my fingers or my palms or my wrists or my arms or my sweat or my armpits or my blood or my stomach or my heart or my lungs or my sorrow or my anger or my fear or my joy or my heartache or my envy or my pain I am not my brain I am not my brain I am not my brain I am not my brain I am not my brain I am not my brain I am not my brain I am not my brain I am not my brain

You are my favorite poem From the heart of your guts To the skin of your toes And I even love the parts Everybody knows Whether or not they care Those eyes, that smile, that hair I know you by heart I quote you incessantly I’m not always all that smart But baby you bring out the best in me When I’m alone When I’m at home or on Public transportation Public transportation I could fill fifty mason jars with Thinking of you It might sound kind of gross But I know it’s true Inside me you are infinity Inside me you are infinity I think you’re the best That’s why I like to keep fresh You are my favorite poem And you are constantly changing And you are constantly changing So let me read you Another three times tonight I want to feel the shape of your meter Find all the places you rhyme And when I fall asleep with my Ear to your heartbeat I’ll recite you again and again I’ll recite you again and again and again And again This is the why You and I become we You’re my favorite poem My lover My friend

Hey Friend 03:11
Hey friend Please don't go Don't you know I need you here He loves you I love you too Maybe not quite like him Does it matter I'll never guilt you for staying out late at night I'll stay out too We'll paint the town You can kiss all the boys and I can kiss them too Then we'll come home And compare notes in bed Compare notes in bed I love you Please don't go If you stay We'll play hooky for a day We can go to the beach or a museum Or we could not We could just sit at home and talk I'll write a song about The things that I've been feeling I'll never guilt you for staying out late at night I'll stay out too We'll paint the town I'll kiss all the boys that you want me to Then we'll come home And compare notes in bed Compare notes in bed I love you Please don't go Hey friend I'm so sorry that you're bored It's all my fault I never thought it'd come to this I love you You love me too But maybe not quite like I love you and it matters I'll never guilt you for staying out late at night I'll stay out too We'll paint the town I'll kiss all the boys but I'll pretend they're you Then we'll come home And compare notes in bed Compare notes in bed I love you Please don't go

Can you hear it? Oh yeah I can hear it too It don’t mean nothing Just walk away undo We gotta back out From what’s been shaping up If we’re not careful Someone might fall in love Oh tell me where will you sleep tonight? No you’re not happy That makes you just my type I can’t make you happy And I shouldn’t try It would make me happy for a minute And maybe a minute more I could make you happy for a minute Then you’d shut the door Oh tell me where will you sleep tonight? Where will you sleep tonight? I like your words And I like your weight You better move over Cause baby I’m afraid I think I know what I want When we’re sitting thigh to thigh I think I know what you want When you look me in the eye Oh tell me where will you sleep tonight? Where will you sleep If you should kiss me Can we please pretend It don’t mean nothing It’s an accident? It made my heart sing For a minute a minute or two No need to tell me you can hear it Oh yeah I can hear it too Oh tell me where will you sleep tonight? Yeah tell me where will you sleep tonight? Yeah tell me where will you sleep tonight?
