Words

Ah... Words. What would a song be without words? Wordless. What would a word be without letters? Letterless. What would letters be without those little curly bits that draw your eye in and encourage you to read on? Serifless. And unless you've overridden the font, that's the kind of font these words are in. Lets all sing now... "We are, serifless, serifless, serrrrif less". Enjoy.

 

1. Crazy Love Thing

I tried to love you as much as I would dare
through all the years of topsy-turvy we still have our hair
Don't get me wrong dear our love is still alive
If we don't find an answer soon I surely am to die

It's just another little crazy love thing
who's going to say I don't know
who's going to say when our time has come

It's just another little crazy love thing
my head is reeling 'round and 'round
I used to know my up from down

We had some great times and sure we had some bad
but really darling let's be honest we're not a passing fad
We've made mistakes dear I'm willing to admit
if we keep playing tug of war it won't matter one damn bit

It's just another little crazy love thing
who's going to say I don't know
who's going to say when we've had enough

It's just another little crazy love thing
my head is reeling 'round and 'round
I used to know my up from down

Did I ever tell you, did you ever see
that all of the tears you cried were wasted on me?
Did I ever know you the way that you wanted me to?
Honey I'm crazy, crazy for you.

We had some great times and sure we had some bad
but really darling let's be honest we're not a passing fad
We've made mistakes dear I'm willing to admit
If we keep playing tug of war it won't matter one damn bit

It's just another little crazy love thing
who's going to say I don't know
who's going to say when our time has come

It's just another little crazy love thing
my head is reeling 'round and 'round
I used to know my up from down

I can't decide now, which one of us to blame
But spending time without you darlin just won't be the same
We've made mistakes dear I'm willing to admit
If we keep playing tug of war it won't matter one damn bit

2. Domestic Bliss

Why don't you just talk to me
You're being tighter than a clam,
I don't know what you believe
If you give a damn

Talk to you it's what I do and I
I do it all the time
You don't hear a word I say
Couldn't give a dime

All I wanted was your kiss
Now I've got domestic bliss
All I wanted was your kiss
Now I've got domestic bliss

Where's that girl I used to know
She was so much fun
How d'you get so critical
Put me on the run

Ain't nowhere that you can run
You don't have a plan.
Here we are, here we'll stay
Guess you'll be my man.

All I wanted was your kiss
Now I've got domestic bliss
All I wanted was your kiss
Now I've got domestic bliss

Like the Yin and the Yang
Hate it when you do that thang
Love is what I gotta bring
This is why I gotta sing
Have to give you one last kiss
Have to love your hissy fits
Gotta try and keep my wits
Gotta get along.

All I wanted was your kiss
Now I've got domestic bliss
All I wanted was your kiss
Now I've got domestic bliss

I signed up for years
Of romantic electricity
Now I cannot leave
This blissful domesticity

All I wanted was your kiss
Now I've got domestic bliss
All I wanted was your kiss
Now I've got domestic bliss
Now I've got domestic bliss
Now I've got domestic bliss

3. Drivin' Back

I'm drivin back, she's needin' me
I'm drivin back, she's needin' me
She's reaching out that's plain to see
I'm drivin back, she's needin' me
I've got this feelin kinda a certain, like a case of do or die
I didn't know I was the apple stuck in anybody's eye
I'm drivin back, I'm drivin back, she's needin' me
I'm drivin back, she's needin' me
I'm drivin back, she's needin' me
She's reaching out that's plain to see
I'm drivin back, she's needin' me
I've got this feelin kinda a certain, like a case of do or die
I didn't know I was the apple stuck in anybody's eye
I'm drivin back, I'm drivin back, she's needin' me

19 hours of drivin on highway one
17 ahead till drivin's done
3 more borders left to cross
1 mistake I made still left to toss

I'm drivin back, she's needin' me
I'm drivin back, she's needin' me
She's reaching out that's plain to see
I'm drivin back, she's needin' me
I've got this feelin kinda a certain, like a case of do or die
I didn't know I was the apple stuck in anybody's eye
I'm drivin back, I'm drivin back, she's needin' me
I'm drivin back, I'm drivin back, she's needin' me

Risin' prairie sun a bloody red
My lonesome shadow paints the road ahead
What future lies out there beyond the curve
Gotta hold the pace so I can hold my nerve
Drivin on back cause I hear you in the night
when I only want to hear the open highway callin
Drivin on back 'cause I haven't any right to keep movin'
when I'm thinking that my heart is fallin
Drivin on back but the pedal feels lighter
and the lines start beating slow...
Gas station coffee, bitter and sweet
Follow your voices, follow your feet

I'm drivin back, she's needin' me
I'm drivin back, she's needin' me
She's reaching out that's plain to see
I'm drivin back, she's needin' me
I got this feeling real sudden, was a case of flee or die
I don't wanna be the apple stuck in anybody's eye
So I'm drivin back, I'm drivin back, cause she's needin' me
I'm drivin back, I'm drivin back, cause she's needin' me

4. Sorry Paul

Sorry Paul, sees a pile of broken promises
He lies awake at night, wondering how it came to this
There's not a big pile of options on the table
Thinks the clock of life is tickin down

And he can't see what he's got but you know he is able
to see how it's holding him down
Anyone else would stand tall, but Paul has an issue
that's bringing his stable existence to the ground...

Sorry Paul, he picks the coal outa the snow balls
he hears them laugh next door, wonders how they heard about it
He claims his life's foundation isn't stable
and that he's squandered his keys to the town

he can't see what he's got but you know he is able
to see how it's taking him down
Somebody else wouldn't quit, but Paul has a problem
that's bringing his stable existence to the ground...

And there's a big dark system off the mainland
thunderheads gathering for a squall
Obsessions perform
like the perfect storm
to swamp the boat of Sorry Pauly Paul

Once he thought he had a little place in the back,
where all the nasty things and people couldn't go
Kept a cache of moxie to get back in the black
but where the place had gone he really didn't know...

Sorry Paul, he's found the end of his tether
his mind runs wild, can't put two and two together
He sees a permanent platform as a fable
all his once green fields are turning brown

And he can't see what he's got but you know he is able
to see that it's keeping him down
If he could come to his senses, he might try to label
what's pressing his sorry existence to the ground...
what's keeping his sorry existence on the ground...
what's stomping his sorry existence in the ground...

Sorry Paul
Sorry Sorry Paul
Oh Sorry Paul
Sorry Sorry Paul
Oh Sorry Paul

5. Cuppa the Bean

Before we go any further with this little talk
It's time I told you the score
Daybreak's not a time you'll find me at my best
a cruel mood is hard to ignore
I love you more than Sunday man and that's the truth
so it's only fair that I come clean
you know later in the morning I could be snappin' at you
If I haven't had a cup of the bean..

Cuppa the bean, I gotta have my little habit
Just pour it straight from the pot and make it black for me
the fluffy foam and flavour sends me right up a tree
Cuppa the bean, I gotta have it or I'm nasty and mean
I've quit the heavy drinking and that smoking gig
But a dry roast addiction is just as big
Cup of the bean
I know there's a limit to what a woman can do
And it's true
And I know how impossible my life would be
Without you
Without you

You're a beauty in the morning as the day breaks
when there's little spoken, but plenty said
I'll need to slide off to the kitchen for awhile
cause a monster got stuck in my head
In your fluffy robe with your long black hair
your as tasty as any treat I've seen
but I'm forced set aside all idle pleasures now
until I've had my cup of the bean

Cuppa the bean, gotta have my little habit
I like it grown in the shade, with a trade that's fair
I won't feed silly habits with destruction down there
Cuppa the bean, I gotta have it or I'm nasty and mean
Float away on exotic aromas diffused
The skull is deflated, the libido infused
Cuppa the bean

6. Missing

for the late, great John Lauchlan

You know I could have sworn we left him here
trudging through the snow and the scree
flat out on my back another world away
his absence gave no quarter to me

But when they told me of the shadow on the mountain top
It left me weary in a terrible way
It left me shakin', and grabbin' and cryin'

You know I could have sworn I heard him there
chatting through the fog of a dream
was I even listening to a word he said?
or was I overcome by a scream?

cause then I found myself up trudging on that mountain top
but couldn't speak and couldn't turn him away
It left me shakin', and grabbin' and cryin'

Can it be?
Can it be?

Can it be?
Can it be?

Do you go on, after you're gone? I couldn't say.
At the end of the day, I'll find out anyway...

Solo

You know I could have sworn I heard him here
whispering at the whim of the breeze
was that his image conjured by the howling snow?
or waving with the sway of the trees?

and now I'm certain that he's waving from the mountain top
and feel a freedom in a beautiful way
It leaves me smilin', and laughin' and sighin'

7. Smile

Hey Baby, where's that little smile?
We've been off in our separate worlds for a little while
entirely on our own

Hey darlin, where's that little grin
I was wrong to move along, and I took it on the chin
Some things were not meant to be
except that smile

Yo Doll! Flash those pearly whites
set that spark that breaks the darkness on this night of nights
Were we just lost in space?

I see it, you can't hide that grin,
were you thinking 'bout another place where we both fit in?
Let's talk about that awhile, and make me smile

So darlin, give up them chops
If we keep it light we ca skip the fight, please don't call the cops
I'm not like I used to be

Hey Baby, will we wake up
will we find a cure to fix that mess of a break up?
Not while you run from me, please make me smile

Make me smile
Make me smile

8. Into the World

When pull and tug comes to push and shove
and you're wonderin' just what I'm made of
you gotta listen (stop your bitchin')
When you turn to walk away
it's not as easy as starting a brand new day
you gotta listen (my finger's twitchin')

when the goin's rough you gotta show some tough
cause the times they'll call for harder stuff
you gotta listen (eyes are glistenin')
If cut and run's your play
Don't think you're comin back one day
you weren't listening (I was wishin')

Well I can still remember when I promised you the world
those nights so warm and tender now so suddenly we're hurled
into the world...
into the world...

You are what you are I am what I am
It's got to the point I don't give a damn
Eyes are glistening (I stopped listening)
When you wish upon a fallen star
prepare yourself for fallin hard
take a breath and get out fast
You know it's true with things they never last

Well I can still remember when I promised you the world
those nights so warm and tender now so suddenly we're hurled...
Well I can still remember when I promised you the world
those nights so warm and tender how so suddenly we're hurled
into the world...
into the world...

Now you're up and gone it'll slowly dawn
that the road we drove is the one you're on
you didn't listen (know what you're kiissin)
Now there's nothin' left to say
See my back as I walk away
you didn't listen (pray for vision)

Oh I can still remember when I promised you the world
those nights so warm and tender how so suddenly were hurled
into the world...
into the world...

9. Jet Set Strut

The crimson rays of dawn peek through the shower
and they give her silky neck a fiery glow
you've got a plane to catch in just outside an hour
and you should have left at least an hour ago

Branch trouble in a European nation
there's labour strife, production's run askew
you're sent to do some fast negotiation
but you know you've got another job to do

The stranger called your wife explores you hurry
with the turmoil all of Europe's going through
and while you're gone as if to aggravate her worry
another public figure disappears from view

The office boys congratulate the wiz kid
though the continent sits on the brink of war
they're thoroughly impressed with what your biz did
and they're gonna send you back to do some more

You go it alone, and you don't want to but...
You're stuck in the middle, you're doin' the Jet Set Strut

Your wife insists that you're becoming distant
preoccupied with your meteoric rise
But you're staring at the paper at that instant
transfixed upon another victims eyes

Sipping wine you're high above the ocean
the pilot tells you all the news he's heard
Your projects all have caused such grand commotion
assassin seems like such a lovely word

You go it alone, and you don't want to but...
You're stuck in the middle, you're doin' the Jet Set Strut

No qualms

but you don't care about that thing called popular consensus
how tenuous a concept that can make
when just a little panic serves to break down all pretences
and leaves such grand destruction in its wake...
You're doin' the Jet Set Strut
You're doin' the Jet Set Strut
You're doin' the Jet Set...

10. Stung Star Raker

I always had my head on
thought I knew where to draw the line
but I bought up the pretty package
was enslavement by design

I'm a stung star raker
and I'm smothered by the man
and though I try to escape it
I'm gonna need a better plan

It came up slow and steady
an alluring creeping tide
and as I marveled at its beauty
I was swallowed up inside

Yes I'm a stung star raker
and I'm smothered by the man
and though I try to escape it
I'm gonna need a better plan

You've got to push away now, and it could happen any day
you gotta take a look what it's really all about...

Aint it fine, this little bubble of sentience?
4 billion years to this day.
A quick realign, some personal repentance
I won't just piss it away...

You've got to push away now, and it could happen any day
you gotta take a look what it's really all about...

Now I look at my personal booty
am I sorry to see it go?
Was it worth twenty years of existence?
I can tell you baby NO!

I was a stung star raker
I found my freedom from the man
and once I finally escaped it
It was indeed a better plan!

Ya, I was a stung star raker
I found my freedom from the man
and once I finally escaped it
It was indeed a better plan!
(HUGE finish)

11. Assumptions

I always assumed I'd come home to your charming wit
I always assumed you'd put up with my moody bit
But assumptions will, as I've often said, and attempted to make you see
make an ass out of you and me

I always assumed you would change all your worldly ways
I always assumed we'd find prosperous wealthy days
But assumptions will, as I've always said, and will shout from the highest tree
make an ass out of you and me

I assumed a magical world to discover
lay deep in your silent repose
I assumed you'd clue in to limited budgets
and ease off the catalog clothes
I assumed you weren't someone I met in those days,
but someone that I wanted to see
I assumed someone needed to alter their ways,
but that someone turned out to be me...

I always assumed I could leave you without a glance
I always assumed I'd be gone at the slightest chance
But assumptions will, as you've often said, and I think we're inclined to agree
make an ass out of you and me

But assumptions will, as you've often said, and attempted to make me see
make an ass out of you and me

12. Go Go Go

Let's get together have some fun
we're always on the run
It's a crazy mixed up world of go go go

We're spending all our time at work
It's drivin me berserk
It's a crazy world of go go go

You've got to blow off all this steam
And really start to dream
Get our bodies synchronized into a flow

And as you take the floor with me
They all will start to see
The dance we call the Go Go Go

Go Go Go
Go Go Go
Go Go Go
Go Go Go

Let's get together have some fun
we're always on the run
It's a crazy mixed up world of go go go

We're spending all our time at work
It's drivin me berserk
It's a crazy world of go go go

You've got to blow off all this steam
And really start to dream
Get our bodies synchronized into a flow

And as you take the floor with me
They all will start to see
The dance we call the Go Go Go

Go Go Go
Go Go Go
Go Go Go
Go Go Go

Won't you dance with me now
Don't you be so high brow
I don't think I'll allow
You to ever say no

Where you been all my days
I was lost in a haze
You have set me ablaze
We just have to go
