Shoot Down the Moon

Oh no I don't want it
You can take it all
I'll put my money where my mouth is
Put your suitcase in the hall

Oh you robbed me blind
Of what little hope remained
You put a gun to my head
A bullet through my brain

You can't shoot down the moon
Some things never change
We can build a bridge between us
But the empty space remains

You can't shoot down the moon
Some things never change
We can build a bridge between us
But the empty space remains

Just as long as you're around
We live on borrowed time
I'll put my money where my mouth is
You're guilty at the scene of the crime

I never say more than I need
The mystery runs deep
The dangers buried below
The secrets that you keep

 

Shooting Star

I'm still in love with you oh shooting star
And when I start to wonder where you are
There you are, there you are, shooting star

You may have seen me at the early show
I sat and watched you from the second row
Oh you were mine long ago way back when
Even then we both knew you'd go far oh shooting star

And with the spotlight shining in your eyes
It's sometimes hard to find your way
But maybe some night you might
Think of me, shooting star

And when that moment comes at last
And you remember who you are
Here I'll be, shooting star, shooting star
Here I'll be, shooting star, shooting star, shooting star

 

Shoulder Holster

Now it was just like Frankie and Johnny
And it was just like Stagger Lee
Dolly Summers was a simple girl
From a mid-west family
With a stucco home and her own Mustang
And a charge account at Sears
She had everything that a girl could want
To live happy for the rest of her years

But the thing that she wanted most of all
Was the thing that she had lost
To the arms of a downtown black jack hustler
By the name of Candyfloss
They'd skipped town on a late night train
Heading for the West
Dolly slipped behind the wheel of her Mustang
With a piece between her breast

She put a pistol in her shoulder holster
She took her car up from Santa Fe
Yesterday morning she was washing dishes
Now she's hunting down a runaway
Don't judge a man by a misdemeanor
You may be sorry when his light goes out
Don't put that pistol in your shoulder holster
You can never, never tell if the Law's about

If it seemed just like a movie
Or a night of bad TV
They should have had a picture of Dolly's face
As she drove across country
With daggers drawn for her fallen man
And venom in her heart
It was nearly dawn when she caught them up
Making out in a picnic park

But the thing that shook her rigid
As she fumbled for her gun
Was the state of the man that she'd married once
And thought of as the only one
And as she looked back on the chances
That she'd passed up at home
Well she quietly dumped her pistol in a ditch
And she headed home alone

 

Show Must Go on

Empty spaces, what are we living for
Abandoned places, I guess we know the score
On and on
Does anybody know what we are looking for

Another hero, another mindless crime
Behind the curtain in the pantomime
Hold the line
Does anybody want to take it anymore

The show must go on
The show must go on
Inside my heart is breaking
My makeup may be flaking
But my smile still stays on

Whatever happens I'll leave it all to chance
Another heartache another failed romance
On and on
Does anybody know what we are living for

I guess I'm learning
I must be warmer now
I'll soon be turning
Round the corner now
Outside the dawn is breaking
But inside in the dark I'm aching to be free

The show must go on
The show must go on, yeah
Ooh inside my heart is breaking
My makeup may be flaking
But my smile still stays on

My soul is painted like the wings of butterflies
Fairy tales of yesterday will grow but never die
I can fly, my friends

The show must go on, yeah
The show must go on
I'll face it with a grin
I'm never giving in
On with the show

I'll top the bill, I'll overkill
I have to find the will to carry on
On with the
On with the show
The show must go on

 

Sick City

Ooh she said the crowd just loved you
My name's Angel and I'm sixteen
I really love your band and your funny accent
Sure would like a cruise in your limousine

Then she said how about a rubdown
You're so cute, I'm so mean
The way you hold your guitar really gets me
I can show you tricks that you ain't never seen

Sick City, nobody to love you
Oh but sometimes I can taste you when I'm feeling weak
Sick City, isn't it a pity
That you can't float above it when the bottom leaks
Oh, Sick City

Hey man how's about a handout
All you dudes just loaded down
Just a little sugar man makes me sweeter
I like to sit at home and watch the world go round

Stage-door monkey's on my back
Begging me to save his life
Can't he understand we're not a healing show
We're just here to play some music for the kids tonight

 

Signed, Sealed, Delivered (I'm Yours)

Like a Fool I went and stayed too long
Now I'm wondering if your loves still strong
Ooh baby, here I am, signed, sealed, delivered, I'm yours

In that time I went and said goodbye
Now I'm back and not ashamed to cry
Ooh baby, here I am signed, sealed, delivered, I'm yours

Here I am baby
Signed, sealed, delivered, I'm yours
Here I am baby
Signed, sealed, delivered, I'm yours (signed, sealed yeah)

I've done alot of foolish things
That I really didn't mean (wrap me up)
Hey, hey yea, yea, didn't I, oh baby (c'mon)

Seen a lot of things in this old world
When I touched them they did nothing, girl
Ooh baby, here I am, signed, sealed, delivered, I'm yours, oh I'm yours

Oo-wee babe you set my soul on fire
That's why I know you are my heart's only desire
Ooh baby, here I am, signed, sealed, delivered, I'm yours

Here I am baby (unwrap me baby)
Signed, sealed, delivered, I'm yours
(got the future in your hand)
Here I am baby (unwrap me baby)
Signed, sealed, delivered, I'm yours
(got the future in your hand)

Hold my hand, let me know you can
Hold my hand, let me know you can
Tell me what you want me to do
Hold my hand let me know you can
Here I am baby, baby (That's right)
Hold my hand let me know you can
Here I am baby, baby

Here I am baby
Signed, sealed, delivered, I'm yours
Here I am pretty baby
Here I am baby (unwrap me baby)
Signed, sealed, delivered, I'm yours (signed, sealed, delivered)
Here I am pretty baby (Where you at)
Here I am baby
Signed, sealed, delivered, I'm yours
Here I am pretty baby (sing to me now)
Here I am baby
Signed, sealed, delivered, I'm yours (signed, sealed, delivered)
Sing a little more
Baby, baby, bay
Here I am pretty baby
Blue, Angie Stone, Stevie
That'll work

 

Simple Life

There's a breakdown on the runway
And the timeless flights are gone
I'm a year ahead of myself these days
And I'm locomotive strong
My city spread like cannon fire
In a yellow nervous state
I can't cut the ties that bind me
To horoscopes and fate

And I won't break and I won't bend
But someday soon we'll sail away
To innocence and the bitter end
And I won't break and I won't bend
And with the last breath we ever take
We're gonna get back to the simple life again

When we break out of this blindfold
I'm gonna take you from this place
Until we're free from this ball and chain
I'm still hard behind the eight
My city beats like hammered steel
On a shallow cruel rock
If we could walk proud after midnight
We'd never have to stop

 

Since God Invented Girls

The mother of invention made it good for me
Tighter in the rear
Longer in the seam
Kicked out yards of leather
Wrapped around her waist
Trimmed it to perfection
And left a little space

Yeah they got competition now
All across the world
But there ain't been no looking back
Since God invented girls

Now I know what Brian Wilson meant
Every time I step outside
I see what Heaven sent
There may be seven wonders
Created for this world
But one is all we need
Since God invented girls

Higher on the heel, paler than pure cream
Leaner on the sidewalk
Cutting through the steam
After claws and feathers
He took skin and bone
Shaped it like an hourglass
And made the angels moan

Oh here's a little heat boys
To straighten out them curls
Now there ain't been no angels round
Since God invented girls

 

Sing Me No Sad Songs

I know you
You're trying to do all you can for me
I appreciate your help
But it's best just to leave me be

There's many things that I have done
And I'm sorry for them now
So darling please don't you comfort me
I'll sort it out somehow

So sing me no sad songs, tell me no lies
Please don't you make me blue
Sing me no sad songs, tell me no lies
Girl I can do without you

Don't go breaking my heart
It would tear me apart
'Cause then I'd be finished for good
So sing me no sad songs, tell me no lies
Please don't you make me blue

I don't want you to think I'm mean
Refusing all your help
The time has come, but my need is none
And I want to be alone with myself

There's many things that I have done
And I'm sorry for them now
So darling please don't you comfort me
I'll sort it out somehow

 

Sitting Doing Nothing

I'm just sitting doing nothing
Wondering where I should go
People tell me I'm just lazy
Weather or not it's true I don't know

So I'm just sitting doing nothing
Wondering where I should go
Many people that I've encountered
Say they wish that they were free

And I know that secretly
All those people would really like to be me

So even though they tell me I'm idle
Why should I do what they say
For they're in the same place all the time
But I'm only there for a day

So I'm just sitting doing nothing
Wondering where I should go
