Did you really say No? Well, I thought you meant yes There were shadows in your hair There were flowers on your dress And the flowers grew wild And the shadows turned to trees Were you happy as a child? Saw you dancing in the breeze? Baby baby on the floor What did you come here for? Did you really say no? Baby you used to glow Did you really say No? Well, I thought you meant please You were happy as a child I was numb to my knees Then the flowers turned red And the shadows grew tall Did I make you disappear? Were you ever here at all? Baby baby on the floor What did you come here for? Did you really say no? Baby I used to know Baby baby on the floor What did you come here for? Did you really say no? Where did your color go?

The feeling of falling Is still so familiar The pain in my stomach Is better but baby Bright colors have faded too early this year And strangers look stranger Around here The flowers you’ve left here have died in the heat, I see parts of your face now On girls in the street I hope you like your new neighbors Don’t sleep with every new stranger It’s lonely, but only at night But most of the time I'm breathing fine Most of the time I'm breathing fine I smile at familiar faces I talk to myself in empty spaces But breathing is fine Most of the time It’s half of me baby That still is infected No water has cleansed it No sleep has erased it Towards and aways-from This room is a cage And things I’m trying to write you They die on the page But most of the time I’m breathing fine Most of the time I’m breathing fine I’ve played through the great composers I get through the nights On wine and prose, and Breathing is fine… Most of the time What else can I tell you? I just turned thirty-one The boy grew no wings So he’s learned how to run I hope you keep out of danger Now, stranger to stranger It’s lonely, but only at night And most of the time I’m breathing fine…

Listening to music We’ve heard once before You take your shirt off You drop on the floor Then you crawl to the bedroom But you stop at the door Conversations grow old You and I We have not said a word In a while I’m losing my humor You’re losing your smile And the night portrays us The moon betrays us And the dark uncovers us And under the covers Lying second hand lovers Tonight Seasons and sorrows And pictures we took You’ll start smoking I’m reading a book I’m losing my vision, You’re losing your looks And the music Plays bitter, plays sweet You let your hair down And roll off your seat And you crawl to the bed, but you stop at its feet And the night portrays us The moon betrays us And the dark uncovers us And under the covers Lying second hand lovers Tonight Something about my voice Reminds you of Something I used to say You used to love And the night portrays us The piano plays us And the dark uncovers us And under the covers Lying second hand lovers Tonight

Look at her go she was oh so brave Well, there wasn’t a light inside his cave Well there wasn’t a light in Where he was hiding But it was cool, so cool inside it What if she knocked? What if he’d say, “Yes!” Well, she’s hiding a gun under her dress Oh, well, what if he’ll find it? Well, he won’t mind it Perhaps she will shoot it Perhaps she will shine it Tooo dooo dooo dooo dooo… Look at her go she was oh so sweet Bringing apples and flowers and things to eat Oh such beautiful flowers Sweets to devour She’s pretty and soft He’s perfumed and showered Look at her go she was oh so pure Dressed in shiny blue leather but insecure She was dressed up in feathers and soft as a kitten Say who will get licked and who will get bitten? Tooo dooo dooo dooo dooo… Look at her go she was oh so brave Well, there wasn’t a light inside his cave Well there wasn’t a light in Where he was hiding But it was cool, so cool inside it

You’ve changed Time has passed Words fade fast Memories Paper cuts How you’ve grown Glad you phoned Did you find your song? You’ve left Lovely red Were you bored? Don’t you like My minor chords? Wings you’ve grown How you’ve flown Hope you’ve found your song You’ve changed Lovely red Time was lost Now half of you For half the cost

Did you really say no? Well, I thought you meant yes There were shadows in your hair There were flowers on your dress And the flowers grew wild And the shadows grew thin You were happy as a child Dancing in the wind Then the flowers turned red And the shadows grew tall Did I make you disappear? Were you here at all? Oh how it aches Breaks the river from the lake Oh how it aches What a beautiful mistake Did you really say no? Well, I thought you meant please You were happy as a child I was numb to my knees Little baby by the sea Gazing at the waves swirl You were bottomless and free You were nobody’s girl Then the ocean burned red And the shadows grew tall Did I make you disappear Were you here at all? Oh how it aches Breaks the river from the lake Oh how it aches What a beautiful mistake Did you really say no? Well, I thought you meant yes There were shadows in your hair There were flowers on your dress

All I recall Is the span of the fall And the loss Then the gain of control Naked and blinded You know I don’t mind it It’s gone but we’ll find it tonight Tell now, my sweet Am I bleeding on the sheets? Guilty of a crime Committed in my sleep? Crimes we commit Moving underneath the sheets Secrets do we keep In our sleep Finally mine Stole it out of your mind It’s the note That I never could find Some of the floor Wasn’t there anymore We were happy Well, happy and bored Tell now, my sweet Am I bleeding on the sheets? Guilty of a crime Committed in my sleep? Crimes we commit Moving underneath the sheets Secrets do we keep In our sleep All I recall Is the span of the fall And the words that were said Not at all

I’m your biggest fan Did you mean it when You sang love is cheap I don’t understand Something in your voice In the way you stand The way you stare at me You look so innocent You’ll be famous soon I just know you will Oh I love your voice way it makes me feel I’m your biggest fan You can walk me home I just moved to town Don’t know if I’ll stay Don’t know anyone Came to watch you play You have pretty eyes Like a child you are Glad I met you now You’ll be going far You can take me home Will you talk to me? ’Cause I love your voice Just say anything You’ll say anything Just to take me home But you made me feel Something real Did you feel it too? Won’t you peel my heart? Will you slice it thin? If you can’t give love Will you show me sin? Will you sing to me? Hold me in the dark? If you hurt me please Don’t leave any marks You know loneliness Is a funny thing Things it makes you do You know what I mean You can have me now I’m your biggest fan But you made me feel Something real Did you feel it too? Will you think of me Many years from now Will you know my name When you sing my song? Will you know my name I’m your biggest fan

Age of victim thirty-four Found spread legged on the floor Time of death could not be set Victim says he’s not dead yet Second victim on her back Yellow hair dyed Auburn Black Cause of death: a slow decay Time of death: was every day Spray a drop of your perfume Watch the flowers, now in bloom There’s a stranger in your room? Baby baby made no sound Saw your body hit the ground Oh no… Oh no… You let yourself show Oh no… Oh no… You let yourself show Oh no… Oh no… Left your fingerprints all over me Oh no… Oh no… The departed is survived By no children and no wife But a picture of a tree And a fainted memory Murder weapon on the bed Suspect sighted giving head Victim crouching on his knees Loves his beautiful disease And the girl who shot the king Shook his broken violin There’s no melody within And the engines made no sound Saw your shadow hit the ground Oh no… Oh no… You let yourself show Oh no… Oh no… You let yourself show Oh no… Oh no… Left your fingerprints all over me Oh no… Oh no… Spray a drop of your perfume Watch the flowers, now in bloom There’s a stranger in your room? Baby baby made no sound Saw your body hit the ground Oh no… Oh no… Got your message late last night Glad your trip turned out alright I heard you found a little flat I guess we’re better off like that

Note to Self 04:50
Never say never But never say always Sometimes can be good for you Try to be kinder to people who bore you You’re probably boring them too Never say one thing And wish for another For which of the two will come true? If you can love it then it will most likely love you Never say never And don’t be so clever It’s lonely to win every fight Never say something you Wouldn’t like hearing If you can’t be nice, be polite Like you do one thing is how you do everything But you can’t do everything right… All of the time… All of the time… And try to be true, try to be fair Don’t play so much with your hair Don’t pick but strum Make room, it’ll come And take better care Don’t be so late, Don’t make people wait Don’t act like you’re so fucking great Don’t over prepare And take better care Care of yourself… Care of yourself… Water the flowers Don’t pee in the shower And books aren’t your friends, they’re just art Don’t say you hate it You don’t need to love it There are so many shades to your heart Be a good lover The thing you’ll discover You’re more than the sum of your parts (Don’t think you know how it ends, ’Cause you know how it starts) And try to be true, try to be fair Don’t play so much with your hair Don’t pick but strum Make room, it’ll come And take better care Don’t be so late, Don’t make people wait Don’t act like you’re so fucking great Don’t over prepare And take better care Care of yourself… Care of yourself…
