В принципе, тексты у Савоя несложные (в сравнении с некоторыми другими исполнителями), но иногда возникают интересные вопросы. Например, Foreign Film. Замечательная песня, очень ее люблю, но недоумение вызывает фраза "You're giving me a stomach ache". Насчет песни Пол сказал: "This is so Lauren ..... every line, every word. She loves movies. She eats books. She's had stomach aches since the day I met her". Яснее не стало. У Лорен боли в животе?
Еще одна песня, I still cry. Про нее Гений сказал: "As one of Lauren's occational stomach aches was going away, she told me with great relief : "It's almost worth it just to feel it fade away". I used these words in the quiet soothing section of this song".
Итак, кто же может объяснить, что такое творится с Лорен, и почему это вдохновляет Пола на написание песен...

Привет, Laelia!

Очень интересную тему для дискуссии ты предложила. Я большая почитательница творчества группы Савой и нежно люблю всех ее членов, наверное, еще и поэтому такие вот эмоции
Честно говоря, мне очень стыдно, но до песни Foreign film я еще не дошла Это в их первом или втором альбоме? Как-то начала я слушать эту группу с конца, извиняюсь.
Просто классные фразы, сказанные Полом, раньше не встречала. Впрочем, неудивительно, он всегда так нежно говорит о своей Лорен (девушки о таком Поле могут только мечтать
Фразу Цитата
» Цитата
"You're giving me a stomach ache"
, по-моему, можно легко объяснить тем, что человек просто по ушки влюблен в свою спутницу. До такой степени он воспринимает все так близко к сердцу, что даже к ее болям в животе он относится с большой нежностью...
А песенку I still cry я слышала по-моему, из первого альбома? Милая песенка.
Боже мой, каждый раз поражаюсь, как Пол красиво и четко умеет выражать свои мысли   Цитата

"As one of Lauren's occational stomach aches was going away, she told me with great relief : "It's almost worth it just to feel it fade away". I used these words in the quiet soothing section of this song".
Просто дух захватывает!!!
В голову сразу приходит, ну как же повезло ребятам, что они встретили друг друга! Они просто meant to be
По-моему, все просто, искренняя, взаимная и нежная любовь Пола к Лорен вдохновляет его на написание вот таких вот красивых строк....

1. It's no better to be safe than sorry...
2. You always have your friends around, but something you should know I think they're fakers...
3. Half of the time I'm just not there out of reach some of the time I just pretend to a stranger or a friend...

Привет всем! Мне тоже нравится творчество группы Savoy и я с удовольствием обсудила бы эту тему, но не могу найти тексты их песен. Помогите, пожалуйста, а то я на слух понимаю только отдельные фразы, а хотелось бы знать смысл полюбившихся песен полностью!

spring, приветик! Вот есть кое-какие тексты
Тоже очень люблю эту группу, только перевода нигде не нахожу надо самим переводить или искать

*KARMA BOOMERANG*

Let's go down and see the man
throw some coins in the Karma Boomerang.

We're going to Grey Dog.
Somewhere down on Carmine st.
Throw flowers in the air
and slowly come awake.

Let's go down and see the man
throw some coins in the Karma Boomerang.

Above us drunken birds
news filled with bloody murders.
Skylines and broken words.

You take your crystal pill
you get an instant thrill
you get your cup refilled and slowly come away.

Let's go down and see the man
throw some coins in the Karma Boomerang.

Is this the year that we will turn it on it's side,
and lead a stationary life.

Let's go down and see the man
throw some coins in the Karma Boomerang.

Karma is a boomerang.

----------------------------------------------------
*BEST WESTERN BEAUTY*

I'm watching the light changing over the hills
In reckless Nebraska
you're living here still
the only thing you need to know about me
is every little thing your eyes cannot see
Come meet me if you will
By the look-out point up on the hill
Come meet me if you please
My Best Western beauty
I'm down on my knees
I held you so long in the palm of my hands
Reckless Nebraska
you know where I am
The only thing I need to know about you
is every little thing that's hidden from view
Come meet me if you will
By the look-out point up on the hill
and now, a year since we met
my Best Western beauty I just can't forget

----------------------------------------------------
*BAREFOOT IN A DENIM JACKET*

She comes to see you
You rise to greet her
She wants some answers
Such lines you feed her
She's unafraid what will unfold
She'll go down any conversational road
Barefoot in a denim jacket
Barefoot in a denim jacket
She's subway riding
She's landlord riding
She's crystal gazing
And contemplating
Her massive moodswings turn you on
This retro summer's pulling you along
Barefoot in a denim jacket
Barefoot in a denim jacket
With sunlight falling through her hair
Over you
Over you
Barefoot in a denim jacket
Barefoot in a denim jacket

*EMPTY OF FEELING*

Yeah, I wake you up in the morning
just to ask if Im empty and boring
Oh, you shake me up in the evening
when you ask if Im empty of feeling

Ah I know you do it good
Ah I know you do it good

You sit me down on a green lawn
I'm getting tired of your voice tone
I'm trying hard to be creative
still you're acting like we are related

Ah I know you do it good
Ah I know you do it good

You told me once as we held hands
I was your сonnection to the mainland

Empty of feeling
Empty of feeling

Ah I know you do it good
Ah I know you do it good

Yeah, I wake you up in the morning
just to ask if Im empty and boring
Oh, you shake me up in the evening
when you ask if Im empty of feeling

Ah I know you do it good
Ah I know you do it good

*GIRL ONE* (посвящено Deborah Cyna Savoy)

Girl one, talk to me
How are we doin' so far?
I'm fine, honestly
Ever read the Bell Jar?
Dum di dum di da da

Girl One

Girl one, trip me up,
drag me down and then pick me up
Girl one, always there
Always Jewish with curly hair
Dum di dum di da da

Girl One

Sunday I got so bored
Down at South Street Seaport
Friends in town, we had to show 'em around
Rolls of film later, I say
Do me a favor; tell me
Are we done here PLEASE!

Girl one, moving on
How are we doing today?!
I'm fine, honestly
What do you want me to say?
Dum di dum di da da

Girl One (repeat)

----------------------------------------
*BOVINE*

I must've have been half-baked
tryin' to work the land
I must've been some sight
A shovel in my hand
If you could see me
turning over dirt

I must've been out there
for taking no advice
I used to be laid-back
and to be precise
I like a late morning
to rest my weary head

You have to be gifted
to get me out of bed

I don't care
if you give it away
Give it away
And I'm there

I'm digging my heels in
I swore I'd never quit
I got me a bovine
to make me look legit
I got me a sheep-dog
and a beat-up truck
I couldn't do better
to get me thru the much
I couldn't do better
to get me turn the mulch

I have until Monday
to make a little sense
I got until Tuesday
to present my full defense
I'm betting the farm on
I'm gonna lose my shirt
Apart from a bovine
I own a piece of dirt
I must have been crazy
for taking on the work

I don't mind
if you give it away
Give it away
And you're mine

----------------------------------------
*WHALEBONE* (посвящено Deborah Cyna Savoy)

Don't ask questions
you don't wanna know
Don't ask for reasons
I will let it show
You've got to know by now how it feels
Got to know how it feels

Oh weeping night
Oh grieving sky
Oh rabbit wind
You just flew by
Oh grant me this, some small reward
I need to make sense of it all
And we will walk, down by the beach
into the sand we will reach
A whalebone
washed on the shore
like knowledge gained
you can't ignore

Don't ask questions
you dont wanna know
Don't ask for reasons
Better let it go
You've gotta know by now how it feels
I gotta know how it feels

*SHOOTING SPREE*

Got out of bed with
things in my head
I said to myself
Be good to yourself
You have to be
Who else will be?

The neighbour next door
His wife left for more
He sits in his chair
and watches the war
You have to be
You have to see

Ahh

How days can turn so sad

Man on the roof
kills everyone that gets
in the line
of him and his gun
then shoots himself
when he's done...

Could one foresee
Where it would lead
a schoolyard dispute
turns into a high school
shooting spree
Tragically

Ahh

How days can turn so sad

-----------------------------------
*MELANIE LIED TO ME*

Melanie, you lied to me
you showed me things you
knew I wasn't meant to see
Melanie... like you cared
you told me things you knew I wasn't
meant to hear
Make it go away (three times)

Yeah!

Melanie lied to me
Everything we shared it meant so much to me
When you looked me in the eyes it dawned on me
It never really mattered much to you

Melanie... so unaware
A quality that I mistook for sweet & rare
Melanie, in the end
what we had isn't coming round again
You made it go away (three times)

Yeah!

Melanie lied to me, every time we talked
it meant the world to me
When you shut me out
it took a while to see
you never really needed much from me
you never really wanted much from me

-------------------------------------------------
*WATERTOWERS*

Just a chilly winter day
I love to see NYC this way
It's a Wednesday morning
Seven o' five
January's almost done
Watertowers and the snow on the ground
Always something going on

Just the usual winter storm
Nothing bigger than the norm
I just let 'em greet me
One at a time
I don't have to see that change
Watertowers and a bird on a line
Right beneath my window pane
Just a chilly winter day
Ask me nicely and I'll stay

*IS MY CONFIDENCE REELING?*

What's the point of doing cart-wheels in the sun
Gaze the rain-washed hills
And wish for things undone?
Is it over yet? When's it gonna end?
Is my confidence reeling?

It's not hard to feel outside from it all
It's not hard to stay cold & uninvolved
But for each new day, I feel less inclined
Is my confidence reeling?

I should've been of help and mindful to your needs
Will the pangs of guilt ease up if I'm on my knees
Tell me what to do, tell me what to say
Send my confidence reeling

And I know just what you'll say
Yes, it happens every day
to one you met along the way
And I know just what will be
so wonderful to see; if somehow
some place later we could meet

What's the point of writing songs that no one hears
Little waves of sound falling on deaf ears
All the care and thought
Was it all for naught
Or is my confidence reeling?
Is my confidence reeling?

------------------------------------------------------
*RAIN ON YOUR PARADE*

Head high
You strike a weighty pose
You say: c'mon gather round
The playback is filling up the room
That Up-With-People sound
That Up With People sound

I don't want to rain on your parade
In light of all the hopes
and all the plans
that you have made
I don't want to rain on your parade
But watch me anyway, yeah
Watch me anyway, yeah

Take a good look where we are
Damn right I wanted more
Like everything we worked for

I don't want to rain on your parade
But there's just something 'bout your face
that rubs me the wrong way
I don't wanna rain on your parade
Watch me anyway, yeah
Watch me anyway, yeah

-----------------------------------------------------
*CYNA* (посвящено Deborah Cyna Savoy)

Everyday I'm wishing the clouds away over you, everyday
Pull your face out from the shade
Into the sun, sun, sun
La la la la la la la la
And all it ever was...
La la la la la la la la
Is all that it will be
Everyday I'm wishing us far away from this place, every day
You with ME and I with you
In the sun sun sun sun
And all we ever got is all we'll ever have
And everything we got is everything we'll have

*THE BREAKERS*

I can still recall the time, sitting in the sand
and watch the breakers as they roll upon the shore
You just walked right up to me: having asked
around - you've had no takers to take you far away from here
Then I came along to hold your hand

Everything is up and its allright cause I feel
the engine pulling us towards a new days light
Everything is down and its ok cause I feel
the engine humming and its taking us away

I've been seeing you around sitting in the end
And watching breakers as they roll upon the shore
You always have your friends around, but something
you should know I think they're fakers
I'm the only one you need
Here I come along to hold your hand

Everything is off, but that's just fine cause
I see the engine running down the straight white line
Everything goes wrong but that's allright
Because I hear the engine humming as it penetrates the night

Where do we go from here
Stepping into mid-air
How do we work it out
Where do we check our doubts

--------------------------------------------------
*ISOTOPE*

Dead of the winter
snow gently falling
stillness surrounds us
church bells are calling
Out in the distance
Cuts thru the grey clouds
I couldn't live here now
But maybe someday
Maybe one day soon

Dead of the winter
Tracks in the new snow
See where they lead to
See where they will go
Into the forest
somebodys waiting
I wouldn't go there now
You do what you want
You do or you don't
Your call

Carbon emissions
de-forestation
Antarctic warming
Land degradation
Fuel-wood consumption
Urbanization

I couldn't live here now
But maybe one day soon

------------------------------------------------
*REASONS TO STAY INDOORS*

You'll get accepted into yale
But they'll excuse you when you fail
You'll get a scholarship to brown
But that color brings you down
You'll go to colgate for a year
In the fresh air up there
You'll grow a habit hard to please
From a semester overseas

You're really not quite well
You know that
And everyone can tell
You know the reasons to stay indoors
You don't need anymore
you remind me of the man
I once was
And some say
I still am

You'll land a job right out of school
While your friends do something cool
You'll get politically involved
But your actions lack resolve
You'll play the loner for awhile
Dressed in black and creepy vibes
You'll stay inside for weeks on end
With imaginary friends

You're really not quite well
You know that
And everyone can tell
You know the reasons to stay indoors
You don't need anymore
You remind me of the man
I once was
And some say
I still am

---------------------------------------------------
*IF YOU WON'T COME TO THE PARTY*

You wanna know
Who's gonna go
Who's gonna show
You wanna say
Maybe next time

You say you might
Stay in tonight
But I will say
you're out of your mind

If you won't come to the party
On grounds of nothing to wear
All the beautiful people
And I will be there

You wanna find
Some private time
You underline
The week has been
Grinding you down

But if you go
I'm gonna show
Just how I feel
I'm head over heels

If you won't come to the party
On grounds of nothing to wear
All the beautiful people
And I will be there

And when I arrive
I look for your eyes
I'm hoping to see
You looking for me

*FACE*

Everytime I look at your face
There's a vibe that's coming thru
Everytime you look at my face
Girl, I hope you feel it too

I could never do much harm
With you beside me
I could never go much wrong
With you to guide me

Driving into New York city
And my heart begins to soar
Driving into New York city
From a trip upstate New York

I could never get too cold
With you to hold me
I could never grow too old
For you to hold me

Like a book you forget
That you've recently read

Everytime I look at your face
There's a vibe that's coming thru

-----------------------------------------------
*HALF OF THE TIME*

Half of the time
I don't know much
Out of touch
Out of touch

Half of the time
I see no reason
To say much
To say much

Half of the time
I don't know why
Don't know where,
Don't know when
Some of the time I just pretend
To a stranger or a friend

Half of the time
I'm just not there
Out of reach
Out of reach

Half of the time
I get no closer
So to speak
So to speak

Half of the time
I don't know why
Don't know where,
Don't know when
Some of the time
I'm undecided
And divided once again

---------------------------------------------
*ONCE UPON A YEAR*

Once upon a year
We had a boy
Our boy
Boy

Once upon a day
It started raining
No complaining
Just rain

Once upon a park
We took a walk
And talked
And talked

Once upon a house
We lived awhile
Inside
In style

I couldn't believe it
I couldn't conceive it

Once upon a year
We had a boy
Our boy
Boy

Once upon a road
We took a drive
To the seaside
For an ocean drive

I couldn't believe it
I couldn't conceive it

What I was about to say
That was not an easy thing to play
What I was about to do
Was to let you know that we both love you

-----------------------------------------------------
*FEAR LIST*

It's so itchy that you have to itch
It doesn't matter if it bleeds
It's so lonely that you lose the grip
In a momentary bliss
In a momentary bliss

Did you spill the milk
Did the milk spill
Were you late for work
Did your head hurt
Did your mind ache
Did the daybreak
Did your car stall
Did the waterfall

It's so hurtful that you have to laugh
People ask you what it is
It's so pointless that you wanna cry
In a momentary bliss
In a momentary bliss

Did you lose the bet
Did the sunset
Did the tide turn
Did you sunburn
Did you spill the milk
Did the milk spill
Did she run away
On a summer's day

*I WOULD NOT CHANGE A THING*

Everyday, down the street
Where we live
We walk, we talk
Watching each day go by

It may not seem much
From the outside in
But there you are
It doesn't say who we are
And baby

I wouldn't change a thing
You couldn't change a single thing
Without it affecting everything
I wouldn't change a thing

Every week, afternoons
Give or take
We hone our trade
Taping the songs we've made

And at night
When we turn out the light
Next to me
You're watching
A late night show
And I go

I wouldn't change a thing
You couldn't change a single thing
Without it affecting everything
I wouldn't change a thing

------------------------------------------------
*PARAMOUNT*

Why do we always
Talk about it
Why can't we ever scream
And shout it
'cause I wanna feel it
Running thru my veins
Driving me insane

Why must it always be like this
Nobody else could catch your drift
Why must you always be so sure
God knows
You've messed up times before
Why must it always have to wait
It forces me to state
Paramount
It's not paramount I guess

When did you whisper
To me goodnight
Didn't you mention
It would be allright
But it's getting harder
Hearing what you say
Hey that's okay

Why must it always be like this
Nobody else could catch my drift
Why must you always be so sure
God knows
You've messed up times before
Why must it always have to wait
It forces me to state
Paramount
It's not paramount I guess
It's not paramount I guess

------------------------------------------------
*THE ONE THAT GOT AWAY*

The one that got away
The one they couldn't save
The one that had to pay
Why it has to be

The one that crossed the line
The one that saw the sign
The one that did the time
It's way beyond me

You don't respond to people
Who wants the best for you
It's something that
You're working thru
Walking by a house
Where the roof has fallen in
You say finally the stars
Can shine on in

The one that moved along
The one that set the tone
The one that came undone
Right in front of you

The one that made the call
The one that took the fall
The one that had it all
But couldn't see it thru

---------------------------------------------------
*AGAINST THE SUN*

Your face
Is turned against the sun
Your mind
Is tuned to everyone
The journey
That you started on
Has just begun

The sky is clear
Without a cloud
And soon enough
You'll find out
What that's all about

We have thought about you
Before you could be seen
Just a little heartbeat
Going bleep bleep on a screen

*FIVE MILLION YEARS*

Hundred million years ago
The dinosaurs
That walked the earth
Were so slow
So slow
Hundred million years ahead
Luchie puts her sleepy son
To bed
To bed

Isn't it a fact
We've a secret pact
You finish off my sentences
You soothe my nervous tendencies
Isn't it a sign
When the stars align
Driving to a shopping mall
No need to buy
We have it all

Hundred million years ago
The dinosaurs
That walked the earth
Were so slow
So slow
Hundred million years ahead
She's landing kisses
On her newborn baby's head
Baby's head

Isn't it a fact
We've a secret pact
You finish off my sentences
You soothe my nervous tendencies
Isn't it a life
You became my wife
I'm hiding in your atmosphere
I'm shooting thru your stratosphere

Five million years

-------------------------------------------
*OVERGROWN*

And he got so low
Lower that a man in China
Jumping in the air

And so hard to know
Wether or not the end was
Drawing near

Oh well
20th century overload's coming thru
All right
20th century overload's getting you
And that's so long ago now
And it's all overgrown somehow

And it got so grey
Greyer than a monday morning
Going back to work
It was hard to say
Wether or not you're acting
Like a jerk

Oh well
20th century overdrive's coming thru
All right
20th century overload's getting you
And that's so long ago now
And it's all overgrown somehow

--------------------------------------------------
*MAN IN THE PARK*

Hey, talk to the girl cause she's good
She's a little misunderstood
Talk to the girl cause she's good

Hey, talk to the man cause he knows
Just how the story goes
Talk to the man that knows

And I think you'll find
That what he says
Doesn't seem that crazy
When you're in his head
And I think you'll see
That what he thinks,
Makes a lot of sense
When you're on the brink

Hey, talk to the flower shop girl
She's all alone in this world
Talk to the flower girl

Hey, talk to the man in the park
He'll tell you he's lost the spark
Talk to the man in the dark

--------------------------------------------
*STAR*

I go crazy with the way you are
You're such a star, baby
I go crazy with the things you do
Can't I be you

If I'll say I do, you will say you don't
If I say I will, you will say you won't
If I ask you out, I know you wont come
I'm not stupid baby

I go crazy with the way you are
You're such a star baby
I go crazy with the things you do
Can't I be you

If I call you up, you're not alone
If I stay to late, you won't drive me home
If I ask you out, I know you wont come
I'm not stupid baby

I go crazy with the way you are
You're such a star baby
I go crazy with the things you do
Can't I be you

In the morning and you're fast asleep
I can see you smile, smile in your sleep
I'm not stupid baby...

*END OF THE LINE*

Four o'clock in the morning
Just got home as its drawing
Catch me now that I'm falling
End of the line

Days go by in a heartbeat
Single life when its bittersweet
Gotta get back on my own feet
End of the line

I don't know how to solve it
Don't know how to revolve it
I don't know what to call it...
But end of the line

I don't know how to break it
Don't know how I can take this
I don't know if I can make it
To the end of the line

I turned away from something real
I walked away from something good
Ten o'clock in the evening
I don't know what I'm feeling
Every day leave me reeling
End of the line

Yesterday she calls me back
She lets me know just where its
Harsh words for an insomniac
End of the line

-------------------------------------------
*ANY OTHER WAY*

Let the mountains fall beside you
Let the road stretch out ahead
Let the stars revolve above you
Far above your head

But is there any other way
To say what you say
Any other way

Cause if there's any other way
To say the things you say
I cant believe it has to be this way
Up until just yesterday
I was your sweet baby

Let the road stretch out before you
Let the stars revolve above
Let the mountains fall beside you
You're supposed to be in love

But is there any other way
To say what you say
Any other way

Cause if there's any other way
To say the things you say
I cant believe it has to be this way
Up until just yesterday
I was your sweet baby

If your life is so hard to define
Let's come back to it
And if your thoughts
Tumble 'round in your mind
Come back to it
Things will get better with time
And I know that's a wonderful line
But things will get better with time

-------------------------------------------
*GRIND YOU DOWN*

I got news from my brother yesterday
I got news from my brother, hey hey hey
When they grind you down, into the ground
Yeah, there's really no one to be found

I got news from my brother yesterday
He said, he had seen you, seen you with her
When you grind me down into the ground
I wont ask for help, you're not around

No one knows where the summer goes
Wait all year then the summer comes
Yeah the summer comes

I got news just today
He said, he's really sorry, he made a mistake
When it grind you down, into the the ground
And you feel like sinking in ground

No one knows where the summer goes
Wait all year then the summer comes
Yeah the summer comes

------------------------------------------------
*BOTTOMLESS PIT*

You say it wouldn't work
It wouldn't take
It wouldn't do any good
It wouldn't change a thing

And I being I
Cant say much to deny it
But I'm stuck with an urge
To only have tried it

You say it wouldn't do
It wouldn't shake
I wouldn't make any waves
It shouldn't be no use

And you being you
You know sure how to phrase it
And I being I
I just have to embrace it...
Don't I

You say it wouldn't breath
It wouldn't move
It wouldn't stay in the groove
It wouldn't stand a chance

You say it wouldn't wash
It wouldn't wear
It wouldn't go anywhere
It wouldn't do it for you

You say it wouldn't float
It wouldn't stick
It would sink like a brick
In a bottomless pit

*MOUNTAINS*

We don't belong
Here any longer
I wont be surprised
If we're out by the summer
I'll always keep moving
Following you

Only the time
Only the time will do
Give me the time
To be with you

Mountains of time
I wish there could be
Just mountains

You look at me now
A little bit older
It's all in the eye
Of the beholder
And when I hold you
Nothing can feel so good

Only the time will do
Give me the time
To be with you

Mountains of time
I wish there could be
Just mountains

And like a student I learn
That what is hot, it will burn
And like a river I'll turn
For no good reason

Only the time will do
Give me the time
To be with you

Mountains of time
I wish there could be
Just mountains
Mountains...

--------------------------------------------
*OCEAN FLOOR*

Babe, it's true
I'm talking about me as you
There's a hole in the ocean floor
That I'm sinking through

Babe its real
I'm talking about how we feel
All the pain that we're going thru
Helps to keep it real

I know you from before
Do you think, I don't
I see by yourself,
Do feel alone

Babe, it's true
I'm talking about me as you
There's a hole in the ocean floor
That I'm sinking through

Babe its high
I'm talking about tie-dyed
There's a hole in the polar-sky
I can see right thru

I love you once again
Do you feel I don't
I want to take you back
Will you take me home
I want the sun shine
I want the sun shine
I want the moon the glow
I want the moon the glow
All the time

------------------------------------------
*EVERYONE*

Everyone can say they're sorry
Everyone else but me
Everyone can have a good time
Everyone else but me

Everyone can laugh
Everyone can talk
Everyone can smile
And everyone can walk

Everyone can make a new friend
Everyone else but me
Everyone can have bad year
I don't have to disagree

Everyone can laugh
Everyone can need
Everyone can touch
And everyone can bleed

One fine day
Wrap your arms around me
Where I lay
Let your air surround me
One last time
Just pretend that I could
Be a part of your world

Everyone can say they're sorry
Everyone else but me
Everyone can make a new start
Everyone else but me
Everyone else but me...

------------------------------------------
*SEE WHAT BECOMES*

I'm standing in a doorway
I cant recall the day
A voice comes out from nowhere
I hear somebody say
(Like in a daze)
Ahh...see what becomes

I'm walking through a snowfall
I'm just a little kid
I'm going though some hard times
Like many of us did
(I'm in a daze)
Ahh...see what becomes
Ahh...see what becomes of us

*BREAK IT GENTLY*

Anybody could tell me baby, but...
I'll wait
Anybody could tell me baby, but...
I'll wait

Cause when you say it you will
Say it nicely
And when you break it
You will make it gentle
You will,
Break it gently
You will,
Break it gently...

I could tune to the grapevine baby, but
I'll wait
Start listening to roomers maybe, but
I'll wait

Cause when you say it you will
Say it softly
And when you break it
You will make it gentle
You will,
Break it gently
You will,
Break it gently...

----------------------------------------
*TONGUE TIED*

And that's why
I'm tongue tied
Your love is real

And that's why
I'm moon shy
Your love is real
That's how it feel

Some will say
Live today like there's no tomorrow
Some will say
Come what may
You just have to follow

But if your world comes tumbling down
I will be right there
I will be right there
I will be...
Right there

And I wont hesitate
I wont make you wait
I will be there

And that's why
I'm tongue tied
Your love is real
That's how it feels

Some will say
Live today like there's no tomorrow
Some will say
Come what may
You just have to follow

But if your world comes tumbling down
I will be right there
Yes if the world just brings
You down
I will be right there
I will be...
Right there

------------------------------------------
*LACKLUSTER ME*

Lackluster me
Stands before you
What can I be
To make you want me

All I have
I give to you
It's all I need
To get me through
And we sill get it while we can
We will walk out across the land
We'll let the birds feed off our hands
Out of our hands

Lackluster me
There I said it,
You could break me
Don't you get it

All I have
I give to you
All I wrote
To get me through
And we will get out while we can
We'll put our heads up from the sand
Two movie lovers with a band
Yeah, with a band

All I have
I give to you
All I want
You want it too
And we sill get it while we can
We will walk out across the land
We'll let the birds feed off our hands
Out of our hands

----------------------------------------------
*UNSOUND*

You say you fly
At times right under me
You say you think you know
What's wrong with me
Well, well
When I don't know what to say
I'd rather walk away
No point asking me to stay
I'd rather walk away

You say you see
Winter wants me empty
'Cos I'm,
Unsafe, unsound
Unwise to be around

You say you fly
At times right over me
You say you've got
The best of me
Well, well
Winter wants me empty

*YOU SHOULD'VE TOLD ME*

In the morning
And the air so still
Cars are passing
Beneath my windowsill
Dusty sidewalks, in the afternoon
Coastal mountains, I will be there soon
You should have told me

I should have told you, that the dam won't hold
I should have called you, but the line went cold
I should have held you in my arms each night
I should've told you when the time was right
Seasons will turn
Never will I learn
Moments will pass
I always think they'll last
You should have told me.

I should have told you, when I had the chance
I should have told you, the way I planned
Dusy sidewalks in the afternoon,
Coastal mountains, I will be there soon.
You should have told me
Seasons will turn
Never will I learn
Moments will pass
I always think they'll last

You should have told me
I should have told you

-------------------------------------------------
*FOREIGN FILM*

Life should ba a film
One of those foreign films
Where people are always talking
And you just can't understand
But it means a lot

Life should be a book
A really, really good book
That you take when you travel
And hope it never ends
And you read again
Life should be a poetry,
A pretty pretty tree
Where words have their meanings
To help you understand
And say what you mean

You're giving me a stomach ache
When you negotiate
You're giving me a stomach ache
When you try and set me straight

Life should be a song
One of those sixties songs
With lots of catchy phrases
That everybody knows
So you can sing along
Life should be a poetry,
A pretty pretty tree
Where words have their meanings
To help you understand
And say what you mean

You're giving me a stomach ache
When you negotiate
And when you set me straight
You're giving me a stomach ache

Life should be a tree, a poetry tree

----------------------------------------------
*I STILL CRY*

Now the leaves have turned and blown away
Everything is washed in shades of grey
Ask me how I know that I'm alive

Well, I still cry, oh yeah
Well, I still cry, oh yeah
But I don't know why

Now the leaves have turned and blown away
Everything is washed in shades of grey
Ask me how I know that I'll survive

Well, I still cry, oh yeah
I still cry, oh yeah
I still cry, oh yeah
I still cry, oh yeah
But I don't know why

The pain, when it goes away
It's almost worth it just to feel it fade away
Ask me how I know that I'm alive

Well, I still cry, oh yeah
Well, I still cry, oh yeah
Well, I still cry, oh yeah
Well, I still cry, oh yeah
But I dont know why

------------------------------------------------
*SYCAMORE LEAVES*

Can't stop, thinking 'bout it
It fills me with unease
Out there by the roadside
Something's buried
Under sycamore leaves

Wet ground, late September...
The foliage of the trees
I came upon this feeling that
Someone's lying
Covered by sycamore leaves

And I could never face it
And I could never see
And I could never break out
And shake its grip on me

*RAIN*

Rain..... rain..... falls down
Empty streets
And I'm falling
Thru the trees
And they're calling
Out for rain.....

Rain...... and it's plain to see
Rain..... what it does to me
Yeaf, rain..... rain..... pours down
Endlessly, here I'm falling
Thru the trees
And they're calling out
For rain.....

Rain..... what is rain
Rain..... is rain
Rain..... is God's own lydocaine
Rain..... is good
That's understood
Rain.....

--------------------------------------------------
*BUTT OUT*

I know what's good for me, yes I do
I know what's best for me, you know I do
I know what's right for me, yes I do
Butt out

I can be myself, yes I can
I can do what I want, you know I can
I can do things myself, I have two hands
Butt out

You, only listed to you don't care what
the others say....anyway
You're talking all the time please go away
You just like hearing all the things you say
You just can't stop, until you get your way

You tell me what to think and what to wear
You tell me how to dress and do my hair
You tell me all the things that I should do
Does that include the hope of leaving you
You, only listed to you don't care what the others say
....anyway
You, only listed to you don't care what
the others say....anyway

I can be myself, yes I can
I can do what I want, you know I can
I can move in with firned, yes I can
I know what'sbestforme,yes Ido
I know what's right for me, you know I do
I know what's good for me, yes I do
Butt out

------------------------------------------------
*THIS, THAT & THE OTHER*

Nobody feels right
But everyone's all right, yeah
Everything's sadder
But what does it matter, yeah

Tell me, tell me, tell me
This, that & the other

There's nothing around us
Left to astound us, yeah
Everyone's younger,
I can't do that any longer, no

Tell me, tell me, tell me
This, that & the other

All of the worry
Get old in a hurry
All of the sadness
I know all the signs
All your compassion
I've seen how you ration it out
Why?

Tell me, tell me, tell me
This, that & the other

----------------------------------------------
*HEY LUCHIE*

Hey Luchie,
Your day will come soon
Hey Luchie,
Your talents in bloom

Say can you see, how
Good it will be
If you want me, I'll
Never go far
Hey Luchie, the way
That you are

Hey can you see,
How good it will be
Bad things ain't gonna
Happen twice
Now I wouldn't tell you lies

Sad things ain't gonna
Happen twice
Let nobody tell
You othetwise

Hey Luchie,
You'll make out allright
Hey, Luchie,
Your star shining bright
Say can you see
How good it will be ...

*EASY*

I'll bring you down, down
And then you'll be with me,
Here, where things are not so easy
I've been trying all day long
To get it right, it comes out wrong
Then you go, and make it easy

It's not so bad, I tell myself
Don't try too hard, things could go wrong
Do you really have to work
We could take the day away
And we'll try and take it easy
We could go out for a drive,
Though I'd rather stay inside
And you know I'll make it easy

Don't say too much,
Don't speak at all
It's not so bad, I tell myself
I'll take you down, down
And then you'll be with me,
Here where things are not so easy

--------------------------------------------
*IF YOU TELL*

If you tell your momma
She will look away
If you tell your daddy
He won't listen when you say
How could it come to this
But now, this is
The way it is

If you tell your brother
Boy will he get mad
If you tell your sister
The one you never had
How could it go this far
But now, this is
The way things are

If you tell your teacher
You'll be mad aware
If you tell your preacher
You haven't got a prayer
If you tell your momma
Laying it on the line
Tell it to your daddy
Life has been unkind

---------------------------------------------
*X-MAS TIME (BLOWS MY MIND)*

Give things best forgiven
Solve things best resolved
Why wait untill tomorrow ?
Get things best forgotten
Move things best removed
Get it done tomorrow

Christmas timeblows my mind
All the lights
Outta sight - outta sight !

Watergun for Tommy
Power tools for Ma
Everybody's waiting
What to get for Sandy
Daddy gets a tie
Everybody's happy - for a while...

Christmas time blows my mind
All the lights
Outta sight - outta sight !

What you wanna say, what you wanna do,
What you wanna get...
... at Christmas time
What you wanna say, what you wanna do,
What you wanna get...
... at Christmas time
What you wanna say, what you wanna do,
What you wanna get...
... at Christmas time
What you wanna say, what you wanna do,
What you wanna get...
... Wow !!
at Christmas time

Give things best forgiven
Get things best forgotten
Everybody's waiting
What to get for Sandy
Daddy gets a tie
Everybody's happy - for a while...

Christmas time (blows my mind)
(Give things best forgiven, get things best forgotten)
Christmas time (blows my mind)
(Give things best forgiven, get things best forgotten )
Christmas time (blows my mind)
(Give things best forgiven, get things best forgotten )
Christmas time (blows my mind)
(Give things best forgiven, get things best forgotten)

*DAYLIGHT'S WASTING*

Washington square's right up the street
That was the place where we would meet
Outside the dog run, don't be late
Most of the time I'd sit and wait
Looking at people passing by
A customer's begging his supply
Just as you thought she wouldn't show
There she come's running
Don't you know it

Daylight's wasting
Daylight
I can taste it
As it falls from the sky

I had a band of certain faim
The brownstone walk
Ups was our name
The singer was fair but got it wrong
He never did justice to my songs
He did more for me and that's a fact
When he went and stabbed me in the back
So, I've gotta do now, do't you know
What I should've done five years ago

Daylight's wasting
Daylight
Yeah, I can taste it
As it falls from the sky

--------------------------------------------
*TEARS FROM A STONE*

In the dawning hour
Break of day
Strikes an old church tower
A mile away
Based on old transcriptions
From a song
We'll be mining
Tears from a stone

As the morning daylight
Enters here
We'll be adding curses
To a prayer
Taking notes down
As we go along
Yeah, we'll be mining
Tears from a stone

Yoi shoot the blame out
Like a star
That never asked us
Who we are
You shoot a wish out
To the sky
It never asked us
Where we hide
...where we hide

----------------------------------------------
*VELVET*

Her skin is like velvet
Her face out from stone
Her eyes when she's smiling
Will never reach home
But hear how she sings

Her touch would be tender
Her lips would be warm
But when we're together
I'm always alone
But hear how she sings

Her skin is like velvet...
So I went to her home
Her place, like a palace
With things you can't own
Her skin is like velvet
And hear how she sings

---------------------------------------------
*FOOLISH*

Woke up
To a lonely type of day
I'm running out of reasons
Should say
Put your arms around me
What can I say
Leave me where you found me
Then walk away

I'm staying through to Friday
Then I'm gone
Unreachable by letters
Or by phone
But one day I'll be calling
Way down the road baby
Stop me then from falling
Don't let me go

One day you will know
I'll be damned if I ever
Will let you go
And it keeps me together to know

I let her slip away
That was foolish
I bow to the ovation
In my head
Put your arms around me
One for the road, baby
Leave me where you found me
Then walk away


*HALF AN HOURS WORTH*

Oh how, I wouldn't mind
Half an hour's worth
Of feeling fine
Oh yeah, I won't pretend
Half an hour
Would be heaven sent

Once in a while
I felt a smile
Oh why, can't you see...
(It's okay)
Those clouds will pass away
Go see a friend of mine
(It's alright)
Stay out right though the night

--------------------------------------------
*UNDERGROUND*

I crossed the town
Underground
You turn, turn away
When I'm there
People stare
So I turn, turn away

Oh Joan we should have stayed together
It's wrong
Your friends don't make you better

I crossed the town
Underground
You turn, turn away
When I'm there
People stare
So I turn, turn away

I know, for her my heart will weep
I know, hey Joan, I'm in too deep
From my heart down to my toes
There are places you should know
From my hips down to my knees
What peculiarities

So take me down
Underground
Don't turn, turn away
Tell me how
Help me now
You turn, turn away

--------------------------------------------
*GET UP NOW*

You don't know how people talk
They say it's in the way she walks
Friends come up to you and say
I've never seen you act this way

Get up now
She comes through a ring of fire
Preys on your head she desires
She rules your world entire
She'll laugh as you walk right by her

She believes in what you do
Knows exactly what you're going through
She tries hard to be the best
She'll break down before she rests

Get up now
Get up now
Your down fall will take her higher
Don't ask what goes on inside her
What could this world deny her?
She'll laugh as you walk right by her

-----------------------------------------------
*STILL I'M ON YOUR SIDE*

Maybe I can't see
All of that you hide
Mm, baby
Still I'm on your side

I can't really know
For without a sound you smile
Mm, baby
Still I'm on your side

Should I step away
Should I bow out now
And go about my day
What would happen here
If I ran my fingers
Gently through her hair

Maybe I can't be
The one that makes it right
Mm, baby
Still I'm on your side

*WE WILL NEVER FORGET*

We will never forget
Those times
We will never forget
Our lives

Head in a cloud
Ears to the ground
We're making the wind rush by
But my baby
Well, she don't know me
For all of the years gone by

We will never forget
Those times
We will never forget
Our lives
We will walk through the fields
All right
We will know how it feels
All right

Your face to the wind
Eyes to the rain
You're holding your head up high
But my baby
Well, she won't show me
For all of the tears we've cried

I will never forget her
Standing there
We will never belong
Elsewhere...
But the summers are good
Oh yeah
Nothing misunderstood, oh no

Head in a cloud
Ears to the ground
We're making the wind rush by
But my baby
Well, she don't know me
For all of the tears we cried
We will never forget
Our lives

------------------------------------------
*RAISE YOUR SLEEPY HEAD*

You hide from the day
Don't be this way
Raise your sleepy head
Old cloths fill the bed...
Use me instead
Yeah, raise your sleepy head

You picked words that
I'd fall for
Why say something
So uncalled for
Little things that I'd die for
You make it clear now what to try for

This morning has come
...will soon be done
So raise your sleepy head
Our weekend away
Starts today
Yeah, raise your sleepy head

---------------------------------------------
*MARY IS COMING*

Something in this morning
Something in the air
Although she's right above me
I don't think she knows I'm here
I raise my ahnds to hold you
Tie you down
Keeping you where
Empty lines I've told you
Disappear
And right as I'm there

Mary is coming
Mary is coming
Everybody's saying
One day at a time
You never minded waiting
Oh, but make it in my prime

Mary never shows you
What she likes
You can pretend
Mary never blowss you
But tha's alright
'Cause what I like is when

Mary is coming
Mary is coming


Мое будущее - мысль,
Мое прошлое - лишь слово.
Но я - это мгновение,
