I shot the Moon - DOA on the lake I shot the breeze - asleep in Summer trees Economy of the unlost - tie my shoes, 1, 2 Scares the daylights out I saw a snake, a sneak in the grass I covered it with my laugh out loud Economy of the unlost - tie my shoes, 1, 2 Scares the daylights out (2x)

Love is in the air Anvil like a cloud Where tether-less I once was held The wind knocked out And as the sunrise lights the dust I see stars for us Today a slap in the face Intended to kill Yet by some stone living ballast, we, We are standing still And as the sunrise lights the dust I see stars for us (Don't die in my arms) And as the sunrise lights the dust As the Moon breaks on the rocks I see stars (Don't die in my arms) I see stars for us

Who couldn't be cut by all the lines we're bisected by? Who could be seen by all the eyes we walk under? It's new year's eve not new year's day It's new year's eve - we celebrate Who could believe all the tail we chased 'round and 'round? Who could believe all the TV we watched when we were kids? (Chorus) Solo Who could believe all the jobs we took just to live? who could believe in all the jobs that just about did us in? It's new year's eve not new year's day It's new year's eve - we celebrate

Hell in sparks - fire works, oh I am bored So lay me in the dark We'll watch the candle drop the blade In the book of holes Same old spell for every face A young girl's lips Keep rotten teeth there in my head Now I watch TV - I wander the apartment remote Why so close tonight - clutching my heart there in your fist? May I make believe you are a cat on me asleep? Teeth purring in my lap I run my knuckles down your back

Tonight I want so bad to hear some whisper of your steps in the sand and have a little talk over the crying rain I want to feel your fingers turning over shells to wear And feel your weight upon me like water on the sunken bridge Along the coast of Maine Here - I sing a little line that I can get behind and say You know Dylan's right, the sweeter ships sail to Spain Though it's just like he said, the lovelier words are yours off the coast

You can sleep all day in the chair with the radio on Overrun with the flowering vines Oh, Victoria, you sprained your foot So go and rest that, I think you should Now, Victoria, you broke your jaw My my, how far you fall Oh, Victoria Now, Victoria, tell me what to do I drew an old Queen, but it ain't true The black forest we're crawling around Oh Victoria, I don't feel proud of anything I've done sketches of, My love, All broken up, black lines

Held a dance, and we all laid you Down the carpet beneath Christ, you got 3 kids, but you don't look it Well, the oldest boy said she was beauty She put her hands on me, and the sky was green Across the bar, the convict swore Waving his crutches in defense of our words you turn and called wives soft-spoken While down the hall, at the cheerleader convention Making letters with their bodies (Let a wave live a little - let your mind talk to mine) G - O R- - U - -N Swear to God, the Captain called it Sweethearts hell the dance you turned around and the sky was green and I blew it - the house broke apart at all its wooden joints and all its fine China

Red Skies, if you take me out tonight It's gonna be a good night When I sail, if you don't remember my name that's OK . . . That's OK
