After I’ve been missin ……
D
What I know is: she’s going
G
When you know it, it’s alright
D G
So you put yourself between you and your pride
D
If you wait for what’s coming
G
And you listen to her lies,
D A
Then she’ll say the things you need to hear
G A
And the only one who’ll disappear is you
G
And one of the million lies she said
A
Is “All of the things you love are dead.”

But I’ve seen what she thinks is love
G D
And it leaves me laughing so we’ll still come around

D, G, D, G, D, G, D

End with a strum of D.


Have you seen the little pieces of the people we have been?
Little pieces blowing gently on the wind
They have flown down California
They have landed in L.A.
Little pieces slowly settling on the waves

I’m one of a million pieces fallen on the ground
It’s one of the reasons when we say goodbye
We’ll still come around. Yeah, we will come around

I have waited for tomorrow from December till today
And I have started love and sorrow along the way
And I am calling from some city
And I won’t be there too long
But I could wait, and I could waste away
But what comes back is to hear you say we’re gone

When all of the times that I go spinning up and down
When all of the things have died between us
Well, we’ll still come around. Yeah, we will come around

After I’ve been missing for a while
And you hear that summer song
Haven’t all the fading lines lingered on?

What I know is she’s going
And you know it, it’s alright
So you put yourself between you and your pride
If you wait for what’s coming
And you listen to her lies,
Then she’ll say the things you need to hear
And the only one who’ll disappear is you

And one of the million lies she said
Is all of the things you love are dead
But I’ve seen what she thinks is love
And it leaves me laughing so we’ll still come around

Yeah we will come around
When you’re gone
we will, we will, we will
we will come around

When you’re gone we’ll still come around
When you’re gone we will come around

‘On A Tuesday In Amsterdam Long Ago’ lyrics

No Comments »

A picture of Amsterdam
Bare trees under glass
Framed in the afternoon light
Of a winter long past
When I was a raiser
To Dublin I’d roam
She was a bareback rider
Some miles from home

Come back to me
Come back to me …
Come back to me
Come back to me …

She’s a carnival diver
Hung in the sky
Cutting through time like a memory
Strung on a wire
The color of anything
Fades in the air
She is the film of a book of the story
Of the smell of her hair

Come back to me
Come back to me …
Come back to me
Come back to me …

When everything’s over
And everything’s clear
When everyone’s older
And no one is here
I try to remember
A girl on a wire
Tumbling and diving above Stephen’s Green
Like a kite on the air

Come back to me
Come back to me …
Come back to me
Come back to me …

All of these drummers go stand on their hillsides alone. They will leave you. They will leave you alone …

This is very preliminar. someone will be able to improve it, i hope!

D – A

Wasted time running scared when all love’s need is to be believed in
All those springs come and gone passed like train’s boxed cars leaving
But I would be lying if i didnt tell you the truth
They will leave you, they will leave you

D7 D C G C D7
So come now, lets go dance to the siren song
D7 D C C C D7
So come, now, leave your damage behind and come

D – A
Some are lost to you

D – A
Waisted time running scared all that i need is to believe in
Something like a summer and i know you need somebody just like i do
And all of these foxes go down in their (?) to hide
They will leave you, they will leave you behind

So come now, lets go dance to the siren song
So come now, leave your damage behind and come
Come now, lets go down to the dance floor
So come now, loose your mind at Le Ballet D’or
Some are lost, some are leaving

But im not gone at all, Im not going anywhere at all
Some are lost to you

You waisted time running scared now autumn’s fire ashes on the breeze
And it spins away like dust on pearls as winter comes to usher in the evening
But all of these drummers go stand on the hillside alone
They will leave you, the will leave you at home

So come now, lets go dance to the siren song
So come now, leave your damage behind and come
Come now, lets go down to the dance floor
So come now, loose your mind at Le Ballet D’or
Just come now, come on lets get out while the get is good
Come now, theres no one left in the neighbourhood


Wasted time running scared
When all a love needs is to be believed in
All those springs come and gone
Past like trains and boxcars leaving
But I would be lying
If I didn’t tell you the truth
They will leave you
They will leave you

So come now
Let’s go dance to siren’s song
Come now
Leave your damage behind and gone

Some are lost to you
Wasted time running scared
All that I need is to believe in something like a summer
And I know you need somebody just like I do
And all of these foxes go down in their barrows to hide
They will leave you
They will leave you behind

So come now
Let’s go dance to the siren’s song
Come now
Leave your damage behind and gone
Just come now
Let’s go to the dance floor
Come now
Lose your mind at Le Ballet d’Or

Some are lost
Some are leaving
Some are lost
Some are leaving
But I’m not going at all
I’m not going anywhere at all

Some are lost to you
We’ve wasted time running scared
Now autumn’s fire is ashes on the breeze
And it spins away like dust on pearls
As winter comes to usher in the evening
But all of these drummers go stand
on their hillsides alone
They will leave you
They will leave you alone

So come now
Let’s go dance to siren’s song
Come now
Leave your damage behind and gone
So come now
Let’s go down to the dance floor
Come now
Lose your mind at Le Ballet d’Or
Just come now
Come on and let’s get out while the getting’s good
Come now
There’s no one left in the neighborhood

‘You Can’t Count On Me’ lyrics

No Comments »

And I can’t stop this crawling out of my skin. I know that you see yourself flying in out of the sky coming down to carry me but I won’t come out …


Anything’s hard to change
But hey I got you down on your knees again
You watch the sky
It’s a pale parade of passing clouds
That cover
The bed upon which we laid in the dark
And the memories that I made of a laughing girl
But you’re just my toy and I can’t stop playing with you baby

If you think you need to go
If you wanted to be free
There’s just one thing you need to know
And that’s that you can’t count on me

I’m coming along real good
But I still can’t do most of the things I should
I watch the sky coming down to bury me …
And I can’t stop this crawling out of my skin
I know that you see yourself flying in out of the sky
Coming down to carry me but I won’t come out

So if you think you need to go
If you wanted to be free
There’s one thing you need to know
And that’s that you can’t count on me

So, you think you need to go
If you wanted to be free
There’s just one thing you need to know
And that’s that you can’t count on me

I watch all of the same parades
As they pass on the days that you wish you’d stayed
But all this pain gets me high
And I get off and you know why

So if you think you need to go
If you wanted to be free
There’s just one thing you’ll need to know
And that’s that you can’t count on me

‘When I Dream Of Michelangelo’ lyrics

No Comments »

We are never quite as close as we are led to understand …


Well you know I don’t like you, but you wanna be my friend
Well, there are bodies on the ceiling, and they’re fluttering their wings
It’s OK. I’m angry
But you’ll never understand
When you dream of Michelangelo
They hang above your hands

And I know that she is not my friend
And I know ’cause there she goes
Walking on my skin again

And I can’t see why you’d want to talk to me
When your vision of America is crystalline and clean
I want a white bread life
Just something ignorant and plain,
But from the walls of Michelangelo I’m dangling again

And I know that she is not my friend
And I know cause there she goes
Walking on my skin again and again

Saturn on a line
A sun afire of strings and wires
To spin above my head and make it right
But any time you like
You can catch a sight of angel eyes all emptiness and infinite

And I dream of Michelangelo when I’m lying in my bed
I see God upon the ceiling I see angels overhead
And he seems so close as he reaches out his hand
But we are never quite as close as we are led to understand

And I know that she is not my friend
And I know cause there she goes
Walking on my skin again and again

‘On Almost Any Sunday Morning’ lyrics

No Comments »

You dig yourself a dream that we won’t be coming home alone, not this time …


Take a message to your head
Just stay beside her in the bed
You were so stupid
To believe in things you couldn’t see then
Make them all you want
If you haven’t got the reasons
Just make up any reasons
Then pick it till it’s torn
Take it all away
Took your coat today
But they all go back in the morning

Make a time to find your way
Got a little further today
Wash your eyes clear of anything
So make ’em empty circles
Dress yourself in black or gray
I’m hungry like a wild waif or only child
This lithium is heroin to me
It makes it all withdraw
All the anger and loss
But it all keeps coming back in the morning
You keep yourself too clean
You dig yourself a dream
That we won’t be coming home alone
Not this time
Not this time
Not this time
Not this time

‘Washington Square’ lyrics

No Comments »

And nobody knows me. My friends and my family are as far from this city as Washington Square …


I sold my piano
It couldn’t come with me
I locked up my bedroom
and I walked out into the air
When nothing I needed
is left there behind me
I walk out through the shadows
Of Washington Square

I wandered the highways from Dublin to Berkeley,
and I heard the songbirds of Valley Paurine
I look at fountain
and it left me with nothing
just the memories of walking through Washington Square

Now I live in the shadows
where light is electric
and time is a number
that rests on a wall

And nobody knows me
my friends and my family
are as far from this city
as Washington Square

So cover this warm night
in a blanket of starlight
Then I’ll follow this freeway
out into the air

In case you should wonder
and wanted to find me
I’m traveling homeward to Washington Square
I’m traveling homeward to Washington Square
Washington Square
Washington Square

This is a list of what I should have been, but I’m not …


Em C

Cowboys on the road tonight crying in their sleep …

G D C
And I know I could look at anyone but you now …

Em C
So come on, come on, come on, oh…come on through now (2x)

D G C
This is a list of what I should have been but I’m not (chord progression 3x, then, )

Em C Em C
Anything…oh…anything…oh…

(Continue through second verse and chorus)

Solo: Em, C

Same progressions through third verse, bridge and final chorus.


Cowboys on the road tonight
Crying in their sleep
If I was a hungry man with a gun in my hand,
And some promises to keep,
Who wanted to change the world,
What’s as easy as murder?
It’s all headlights and vapour trails
And Circle K killers

And I know I could look at anyone but you now
I could fall into the eyes of anyone
But you now, now, now, now

So come on, come on, come on
Oh, come on through now
Come on, come on, come on
Oh, come on through now

This is a list of what I should have been
But I’m not
This is a list of the things that I should have seen
But I’m not seeing
The look in your eyes
As his fingertips slid down your neck
And made you shiver
I’m just turning away from where I should have been
Because I am not anything
Oh, anything, oh

The president’s in bed tonight
But he can’t get to sleep
‘Cause all the cowboys on the radio are killers
And I believe she loves you
‘Cause you never make her feel like anything
She said, “I wouldn’t feel a thing,
But I can feel, oh, I can feel …”

And I know I could look at anyone but you now
I could fall into the arms of anyone
But you now, now, now, now

So come on, come on, come on
Oh, come on through now
Come on, come on, come on
Oh, come on through now

This is a list of what I should have been
But I’m not
This is a list of the things that I should have seen
But I am not seeing
The look in your eyes
As his fingers are unzipping your dress
And it makes you shiver
I’m just turning away from what I shouldn’t see
Because I am not anything
Oh, anything, no!

Everyone’s in bed tonight
But nobody can sleep
‘Cause all the satellites are watching through our windows
She says she doesn’t love me, like, but she’s acting
But it’s as if she isn’t talking
‘Cause Mr. Lincoln’s head is bleeding
On the front row while she’s speaking

I said, “Come on all you cowboys,
All you blue-eyed baby boys,
Oh, come on all you dashing gentlemen of summer
I’ll wait for you where Saturday’s a memory,
And Sunday comes to gather me,
Into the arms of God who welcome me,
Because I believe, oh I believe …”

And I know I could look at anyone but you now
I could fall into the eyes of anyone
But you now, now, now, now

So come on, come on, come on
Oh, come on through now
Come on, come on, come on
Oh, come on through now

This is a list of what I should have been
But I’m not
This is a list of the things that I should have seen
But I’m not seeing. You look at me.
So please, won’t you look at me?
‘Cause I’m not seeing you look at me
Oh, oh, I, I will make you look at me
Or I am not anything!
Oh, anything
No no no no
No no no no
No, no.

A line of spotlights and jack knifes.

And white as a lie

I don’t want to feel so different
But I don’t want to be insignificant
And I don’t know how to see
The same things different now

Driving through the dark while the night turns blue
And you wear your intentions, as I wear my intentions
So clear …

If you see me, wading through water
Oh come drown a river right in front of the world
Hey, you can wash your face and hands in a stream of my anger
It’s as bright as white paper, as dark as a girl
