A Million Hungry Eyes

I remember in Red Square
The monuments to us
A little toxin in our drinks
Had turned our tongues to rust

It’s so hard to believe you’re a swan
The curtains hang half-drawn
You wait for earth or sun to bring you dawn

A million hungry mouths
Would strip you to your bones
And every note would still
Be perfectly in tune
A million hungry eyes
Would strip you to your clothes
And everyone would still
They’d say you hung the moon

You brought me pages of hardcore torn
And casts of lovers yet unborn
You carried me across the room in a swoon
To soon forget you hung the moon

A million hungry mouths
Would strip you to your bones
And every note would still
Be perfectly in tune
A million hungry eyes
Would strip you to your clothes
And everyone would still
They’d say you hung the moon

Be quiet on the set
Take one
Be quiet on the set
Take two
Be quiet on the set…

Just Try

You almost turned inside out
Found you down by the boats
Fell asleep in my arms
Under northern lights that danced like ghosts

If you can’t contain yourself, my dear
Just try, just try, your time is near

Like the summer’s last day
A coming chill in the air
Before the leaves turn to fire
As the sunlight plays in your hair

It seems like a thousand years
Since you last stayed the night
But something’s changed inside you now
You’re not afraid to come back and fight

When you can’t contain yourself, my dear
Just try, just try, I’ll hold you near
You can’t contain yourself this time
Betrayed by something so sublime

I love your need
Your joy in grief
You bring relief
To me

Come On

Come on
I want to raise the roof tonight
I want to scare the dark to light
It’s been too long since we took flight
Come on, come on, join me
Come on

We’re more than water over the bridge
We’re more than tearing down the rich
Call me a raging sentimentalist
Come on, come on, join me
Come on

Come on
It’s time we think before we fight
It’s time to fight before we die
It’s time to love before we’re dry
Come on, come on, join me
Come on

Killing All My Friends

I’m killing all my friends
Without a word they’re strangers now
Nobody returns
Nobody returns my calls

You’re my alibi, undercovers spy
We’re in stealth mode
I’m incommunicado to all the world
But you

It’s precious, don’t you think,
We’re whipped, they’re green with envy, yes
Some day they’ll find out
I’m killing all my friends for you

You’re my alibi, undercovers spy
Below the radar on
A secret mission to save the world
I’m saving only you

You’re a fairy tale and I wish I could
Find clever way to imitate that spell
Spin myself a tale to wag the dog too

No one’s colder than a November child
But warms you like nothing when the smile
For however long, is for real

It’s Not Enough

It’s not enough that I should feel this way
So tweaked up, it’s cliched
It’s not enough that you should feel this good
With linen and hard wood

But I know that you want
Something magic this time
When the tears wash away
Drink the juices
With a bittersweet kiss
Upon everyone’s lips
And your cover let slip
Hello Judas

From a baby, stealing candy
On the corner feeling dandy
On the altar feeling randy
It’s just enough

It’s not enough that I should feel like this
So tragic and helpless
It’s not enough to comfort you with alcohol
You’re a picture on a blank wall

Well I’ve seen you with me
And I’ve seen you with her
And I know what that look
In your eye is
With a bittersweet kiss
Planted on my lips
When you show her the slip
I can’t resist

In your mouth swirling brandy
On the corner feeling randy
In the bedroom sucking candy
It’s just enough

I Will Wait For You

©1964 Gimbel/Legrand/Demy

If it takes forever I will wait for you
For a thousand summers I will wait for you
Till you’re back beside me till I’m holding you
Till I hear you sigh here in my arms.

Anywhere you wander anywhere you go
Every day just remember how I love you so
In your heart believe what in my heart I know
That forevermore I’ll wait for you.

The clock’ll tick away the hours one by one
Then the time will come when all the waiting’s done
The time when you return and find me here and run
Straight to my waiting arms.

If it takes forever I will wait for you
For a thousand summers I will wait for you
Till you’re here beside me till I’m touching you
And forevermore sharing your love.

Fashion Tips For The Homeless

Every comfort I once had is now consumed by flame
Burning bright I set alight I am the spark of change
Yeah

Ashes to the sky
Ashes to the sky

Above the clouds the sun shines always, fly now while you can

That dirty hippy on the street he’s Jesus in disguise
Actually it’s just me goofin’, I kinda have his eyes

So where can we get high?
Yeah where can we get high?

All the grains of sand are slipping quickly from your hand

All the perfect worlds inside you spill out when you wake
Warm, soft bodies wrap around you feel their tender ache

Burning up inside
Burning up inside

If you were god would you be willing to blame it on your plan?

Watching You Sleep

All I do is make you cry
It’s a long beginning to a short end I
Miss you so much when you’re not around
I’m going to miss you when you’re off the rebound

I lay awake every night with you beside me
Your breathing keeps perfect time with my pulse
The happiest I’ve ever been is in these times when
I watch you sleep and the world is perfect

The happiest I’ve ever been is in these times when
I watch you sleep and the world is perfect

Ten to one you don’t snore
Twenty to one you won’t hear the front door
Hundred to one you don’t wake
Zero to sixty in three seconds hope my brakes
Work

Don’t ever say I didn’t care

I lay awake every night with you beside me
Your breathing keeps perfect time with my pulse
The happiest I’ve ever been is in these times when
I watch you sleep and the world is perfect

The happiest I’ve ever been is in these times when
I watch you sleep and the world is perfect

Thanks to science we’ve got love

My Wasted Youth

My wasted youth

I’ve been thinking about my wasted youth
Don’t remember much from all your dry vermouth
Haven’t spoken with nobody from those days back then
Except for you and I miss you man
As sad as we were it was funny
Just where did we steal all our money?

Where has everyone gone
From that rum soaked dawn?

My wasted youth

The years washed by in my wasted youth
Got drunk most nights, now that’s the truth
No surprise that nothing meaningful ever came of it
Except for this song of impotent regret
Now our brothers and sisters have children
And I wonder if they’re going to listen

Now everyone’s gone
When the dusk turns dawn

My doctor said, “it’s no good for your heart”
But if I remember my heart played no part
In anybody’s life except through the drink
Or so I’d like to think

I’ve been thinking about my wasted youth
The small town bars and your dry vermouth

My wasted youth

Your Secret’s Out

I woke today my head on fire
I don’t recall a thing from last night
The kind of drugs you shoveled down
My throat disgraced this sickly town

I don’t know what you did to me
I fell so hard so easily
I know your type, you scream and shout
But fake the end, your secret’s out

A cocktail bar and Rohypnol
I could have sworn I’ve tried it all
But something else got in my veins
If I’m in love it’s still called rape

I don’t have much as evidence
The clues I’ve got, they make no sense
I’m paralyzed, but sober now
I’ve seen firsthand your secret’s out

I don’t know what you did to me
I felt so loved on ecstasy
I know your type, you scream and shout
But fake the end, your secret’s out
I don’t know what you did to me
I fell so hard so easily
I know your type, you scream and shout
But fake the end, your secret’s out

The Kind Of Girl I Am

Any minute you’ll walk through that door
And I’ll have to tell you I don’t love you anymore, no more
But then I’ll surprise you with twelve roses in a vase
And take your hand and a deep breath and pause
Pull you closer so you see my little flaws
I never was
Too insecure
To try your bras
‘Cause that’s the kind of girl I am
Yeah, that’s the kind of girl I am
‘Cause that’s the kind of girl I am
The kind of girl I am…

Remember when we moved the furniture around?
All around us the house burned to the ground with no sound
That night you gave me twelve roses in a vase
You took my hand and pulled me closer to your face
One on the shoulder one hand around your waist
And I could taste
Upon your lips
The human race

You said that’s the kind of girl I am
Yeah, that’s the kind of girl I am
‘Cause that’s the kind of girl I am
The kind of girl I am…

Cynical to the end
Destitute to the end
Comical to the end
Scared and wild

Pull you closer and you’re pulling back the claws
Effect and cause
You put your life
Between the jaws
‘Cause that’s the kind of girl I am
Yeah, that’s the kind of girl I am
‘Cause that’s the kind of girl I am
The kind of girl I am…

All Over You

Nothing you can say
Can make me stay away today

Because I’m all over you, you tease
I’m in your hair and in the air you breathe

All over you

We are the spinning stars
This burst of light and heat is ours

And I’m all over you like naked skin
So say your prayers and swear another sin

All over you

But maybe I’ll be over you as you’re over me
If you’re the supernova – I’m the stars on the sea

Because I’m all over you
Yes, like yesterday’s news

All over you

The End Of The Tape

The end of the tape
Nothing to say
The last escape
My last free day

Little things that stick
Tiny scabs to pick
It fell from the sky
In the water supply
The end of the tape
Pillage, plunder and rape
Away
