HERE’S WHERE THE STORY ENDS
people I know, places I go make me feel tongue-tied
I can see how people look down they're on the inside
here's where the story ends

people I see, weary of me showing my good side
I can see how people look down, I'm on the outside
here's where the story ends
ooh, here's where the story ends

it's that little souvenir of a terrible year which makes my eyes feel sore
oh, I never should have said the books that you read were all I loved you for
it's that little souvenir of a terrible year which makes me wonder why
and it's the memories of your shed that make me turn red
surprise, surprise, surprise

crazy I know, places I go make me feel so tired.
I can see how people look down, I'm on the outside
oh, here's where the story ends
ooh, here's where the story ends

it's that little souvenir of a terrible year which makes my eyes feel sore
and who ever would've thought the books that you brought were all I loved you for
oh the devil in me said “go down to the shed,” I know where I belong
but the only thing I ever really wanted to say was wrong, was wrong, was wrong

it's that little souvenir of a colorful year which makes me smile inside
so I cynically, cynically. cynically say “the world is that way”
surprise, surprise, surprise, surprise, surprise.

here's where the story ends
ooh, here's where the story ends

PROPAGANDA
“hello soldier boy” oh boy, she's spewing out her
propaganda, propaganda
might makes right, though you are wrong,
you're right to fight her
propaganda, propaganda, propaganda

"come to our side" she does say
"come on over" she does say
well I don't need more
competition for
her affection
you should fight on
fight on
over there

TOUCHED
instrumental

TAU MATAMUA
there are three children
who survived from the war
there is some indifference in their life
on this island named Oparo
because of their indifference
the rock Kao went away
from Reureu and Atira two rocks
until today

RENAISSANCE AFFAIR
sweet relief calms me down
makes me drown
lost and found
neighbors complain, sheets are stained
hotel shower, the best around
spacing from Paris to New York
silver sunglasses, silver phone
connect us to someone who doesn't know
about these feelings we can't control
people they want use to fall down

but we won't ever touch the ground
we're perfectly balanced
we'll float around
'til no one is near
do you hear this sound
spacing from Paris to New York
silver sunglasses, silver phone
connect us to someone who doesn't know
about these feelings we can't control
this strange feeling captures us
it generates this huge fuzz
I miss you all the time I must face
I miss your touch and your embrace

WHAT IT FEELS LIKE FOR A GIRL
do you know what it feels like for a girl
do you know what it feels like in this world

silky smooth
lips as sweet as candy, baby
tight blue jeans
skin that shows in patches

strong inside but you don't know it
good little girls they never show it
when you open up your mouth to speak
could you be a little weak

do you know what it feels like for a girl
do you know what it feels like in this world
for a girl

hair that twirls on finger tips so gently, baby
hands that rest on jutting hips repenting
hurt that's not supposed to show
and tears that fall when no one knows
when you're trying hard to be your best
could you be a little less

do you know what it feels like for a girl
do you know what it feels like in this world
for a girl

do you know what it feels like for a girl
do you know what it feels like in this world
for a girl

girls can wear jeans
and cut their hair short
wear shirts and boots
'cause it's OK to be a boy
but for a boy to look like a girl is degrading
'cause you think that being a girl is degrading
but secretly you'd love to know what it's like
wouldn't you
what it feels like for a girl

do you know what it feels like for a girl
do you know what it feels like in this world
for a girl

STANDING HERE
I'm standing on a hilltop
a hundred miles from home
I can see the light surrounds me
I want you to show me around

I'm standing here
I really don't think you know that
I'm in heaven when you smile

I'm drifting through the city
I'm swinging from a tree
I can touch, but you can't feel me
you hear me as you sleep

I'm standing here
I really don't think you know that
I'm in heaven when you smile

and I'm everywhere
I really don't think you know that
I'm in heaven when you smile
but I don't think you think like I do
no matter how how hard I try
I always thought I'd have the answer
let me tell you what I've got

I'm looking through your window
I might just have the key
over me my free-fall baby
you hear me as you speak

I'm standing here
I really don't think you know that
I'm in heaven when you smile
I'm standing here
I really don't think you know that
I'm in heaven when you smile

but I'm everywhere
I really don't think you know that
I'm in heaven when you smile
but I don't think you think like I do
no matter how how hard I try
I always thought I had the answers
let me tell you what I've got
oh let it rot I made them stop

I could park the juggernaut in your mouth
and I can feel the hurricane when you shout
I should be safe forever in your arms
I should be safe forever in your arms
who could park the juggernaut in your mouth?
and I can feel the hurricane when you shout
I should be safe forever in your arms
I should be safe forever in your arms

TRIAD
you want to know how it will be
me and him and you and me
you both stand there your long hair flowing
your eyes alive your mind still growing
saying to me "what can we do now that we both love you"
I love you too
I don't really see why can't we go on as three

you are afraid, embarrassed too
no one has ever said such a thing to you
your mother's ghost stands at your shoulder
face like ice, a little bit colder
saying to you "you can not do that, it breaks all the rules
you learned in school"
I don't really see why can't we go on as three

we love each other it's plain to see
there's just one answer comes to me
sister lovers water brothers
and in time maybe others
so you see what we can do is to try something new
if you're crazy too
I don't really see why can't we go on as three.

TRACY I LOVE YOU
tell me stories on my birthday
buy me gifts on Halloween
she's pretending not know me
but I know where she's been

change your name and change your number
I'm gonna find you anyhow
I have been through all your things
asking when and how and why

I spend too much time in airplanes
eating peanuts and getting high
don't know why I can't stop smiling
when I only need to cry

MAMA ROUX
mama roux, she was the queen of the little red, white and blue
said ooh why did you spy boy
prepare yourself to die boy
medicine man got heap strong power
you know better than to mess with me
(there’s more but I’m tired of transcribing)

I WAS BROUGHT TO MY SENSES
alone with my thoughts this evening
I walked on the banks of Tyne
I wondered how I could win you
or if I could make you mine
or if I could make you mine

the wind it was so insistent
with tales of a stormy south
but when I spied two birds in a sycamore tree
there came a dryness in my mouth
came a dryness in my mouth

for then without rhyme or reason
the two birds did rise up to fly
and where the two birds were flying
I swear I saw you and I
I swear I saw you and I

I walked out this morning
it was like a veil had been removed from before my eyes
for the first time I saw the work of heaven
in the line where the hills had been married to the sky
and all around me
every blade of singing grass
was calling out your name
and that our love would always last
and inside every turning leaf
in the pattern of an older tree
the shape of our future
the shape of all our history
and out of the confusion
where the river meets the sea
came things I'd never seen
things I'd never seen

I was brought to my senses
I was blind but now that I can see
every signpost in nature
said you belong to me

I know it's true
it's written in a sky as blue
as blue as your eyes
as blue as your eyes
if nature's red in tooth and claw
like winter's freeze and summer's thaw
yhe wounds she gave me
were the wounds that would heal me
and we'd be like the moon and sun
and when our courtly dance had run
its course across the sky
then together we would lie
and out of the confusion
where the river meets the sea
something new would arrive
something better would arrive

I was brought to my senses
I was blind but now that I can see
every signpost in nature
said you belong to me
I was brought to my senses
I was blind but now that I can see
every signpost in nature
said you belong to me

CORRINA CORRINA
Corrina, Corrina
girl, where you been so long?
Corrina, Corrina,
girl, where you been so long?
I been worrying 'bout you, baby
baby, please come home

I got a bird that whistles
I got a bird that sings
I got a bird that whistles
I got a bird that sings
but I ain’t got Corrina
life don't mean a thing

Corrina, Corrina
girl, you're on my mind
Corrina, Corrina,
girll, you're on my mind
I'm thinking 'bout you, baby,
I just can't keep from crying

‘PON A HILL
'pon a hill a green bird sat
her owlets in a green felt hat
her fortune was a wish.

ambassador a heron blue
rode on the dawn with kegs of dew
he said his tales were true

a ragged youth with eyes of glass
was seen dancing upon the grass
his words were winged and wise

his shaven skull he etched with ease
the silent scriptures of the trees
his prophecies were you

MR. SLATER’S PARROT
hmm

ALL OF MY THOUGHTS
don't know what to do by myself
cause all of my time was with you
I just don't know what to do on my own
all of my thoughts are of you
all of my thoughts are of you

don't know how to sleep on my own
cause all of my dreams are of you
I just don't know what to do on my own
all of my thoughts are of you
all of my thoughts are of you

don't know what to do by myself
cause all of my time was with you
I just don't know what to do on my own
all of my thoughts are of you
all of my thoughts are of you
