‘Love and Addiction’ lyrics (demo)

No Comments »

I play piano and I sing like a hummingbird …


Put on your bad self
Get out your party dress and fix up your makeup
try to make a good impression
This is a new world. We’re all the same here,
Well maybe not the same you know what I mean.

I’ve got everything that you want
I’ve got everything and someday I’ll be president.
I’ve everything that you want.
I’ve got everything except the single thing you really need.

Separate love from addiction
It’s not the same I know I see desperation pulling my strings.
Hey Eliza now what do you want?
I play piano and I sing like a hummingbird
and oh I forgot that hummingbirds don’t sing,
It doesn’t matter really you know what I mean.

I’ve got everything that you want
I’ve got everything and its a brand new world Eliza.
I’ve got everything that you want.
I’ve got everything except the single thing you really need.

Sail away blood and rejection. They isolate.
I know I see, a generation staring back at me
Wasted away … wasted my time
This picture you see is nothing like
the one I wanted painted of me.
Eliza says “it’s all right with me,
if you’re sure … it wouldn’t be the first time,
you know it’s happened a couple of times before and
I don’t even expect much anymore and anyway…
it’s not as if I was waiting for you
to come and make it all okay”.
Shut away to wing blood and rejection
they isolate I know
I see visions of people grabbing hold of me.
Wasted away … wasted my time.
This picture you see is nothing like the
one I wanted painted of me.
Put on your bad self, get out your party dress
and fix up your makeup
try and make a good impression.

‘Shallow Days’ lyics

No Comments »

I’m falling, falling down. “I’m sorry”, she said. “I know I’m not the kind of girl you want” …


Mary Jane says it’s all right
She’s just around the corner from the main light.
Any day now, it’s all right
She’s standing on the precipice of big time.
And I know I’m a little uptight,
I’ve got to go before the sun shines.
We’re just a couple small people squeezing out a life,
We need a little good time.
It’s not far from the edge,
Mary comes and goes.
Drifting through the scenery of the shallow days below,
That is anybody knows.

You follow trains out of town and they vanish somewhere under the horizon.
Yeah well I saw Mary Jane dragged her shadow down the tracks, Stare off in the distance.
It’s not far from here,
Mary waves hello.
Smiling though she’s sinking in the shallow days below,
I can’t find a way out of here.
Out on the road again,
I’m much, much too concerned about Mary Jane.
I’m all alone again,
I like what she said, not what it means.
She leaves me drowning through the shallow days, down below.

You know I heard a band playing waltzes in a grange hall
The sun is sinking lower.
People staring, Mary Jane humming softly to herself,
Nobody really knows her.
Any day now it’s all right,
She tells herself that this will be the last time.
Mary Jane pulls her hair back and wonders what she’ll do with all her free time.
Not too far from here,

Mary turns to go.
Smiling while the waltz begins, dancing down the road

Hey hey Mr. Freedom,
What are we supposed to think?
‘Cause I’m a very tiny person and it worries me.
I’m all alone again,
I like what she says, not what it means.
She leaves me drowning in the shallow days way down below.
“I’m sorry”, she said,
“I know it’s not the kind of thing you want.”
I’m falling, falling down.
“I’m sorry”, she said.
“I know I’m not the kind of girl you want.”
We’re falling, falling, falling, falling down.

‘We’re Only Love’ lyrics (cover)

This song is on Counting Crows’ Flying Demos CD and is originally by Mr. Dog

I will live on calling your name …


Who built the ball that is this earth?
Gave me life and water for my thirst.
Home for a heart till death from birth
And we’re only love, at it’s best or worst.

Love calling your name
I will live on
Calling your name

Who wrote the pages of our lives?
In black and white, and taught me wrong from right
It’s your heart that held you tight
But we’re only love
Spin me around and round and round
Love calling your name
I will live on
Calling your name
And the world seems like my enemy
The waterfall of frowns
And the wave of life will capture me
And I’m falling down upon love
C’mon now darling
I’m falling falling down on love
I’m falling down, falling down on love
I’m falling down on love
