artist="ABBA" song="I Know Him So Well"

The Russian says he must leave Florence for the duration of the competition. Florence is left alone with the TV still showing Svetlana's image. She recalls how well she knows the lover who has just left her. Svetlana recalls how well she knows her husband.
FLORENCE:
Nothing is so good it lasts eternally
Perfect situations must go wrong
But this has never yet prevented me
Wanting far too much for far too long.
Looking back I could have played it differently
Won a few more moments who can tell
But it took time to understand the man
Now at least I know I know him well


FLORENCE: SVETLANA:

Wasn't it good? Oh so good
Wasn't he fine? Oh so fine
Isn't it madness
He can't be mine? He can't be mine?

But in the end he needs
A little bit more than me --
More security He needs his fantasy
And freedom
I know him so well.

SVETLANA:
No one in your life is with you constantly
No one is completely on your side
And though I move my world to be with him
Still the gap between us is too wide.

FLORENCE: SVETLANA:

Looking back I could Lookiimage. She recalls how well she knows the lover who has just left her. Svetlana recalls how well she ng back I could
Have played things Have played it
Some other way Differently

Learned about the man
Before I fell
I was just a little
Careless maybe
But I was
Ever so much
Now at least Younger then
I know him well Now at least

BOTH:
I know I know him well


SVETLANA: FLORENCE:

Wasn't it good? Oh so good
Wasn't he fine? Oh so fine
Isn't it madness

BOTH:
He won't be mine?
Didn't I know
How it would go?
If I knew from the start
Why am I falling apart?

FLORENCE: SVETLANA:

Wasn't it good?
Wasn't he fine?
Isn't it madness
He won't be mine? He won't be mine?
But in the end he needs a
Little bit more than me --
More security He needs his
Fantasy and freedom
I know him so well
It took time to understand him

BOTH:
I know him so well

Corazón Partío

Tiritas pa este corazón partío.
Tiri-ti-tando de frío.
Tiritas pa este corazón partío,
pa este corazón partío.

Ya lo ves, que no hay dos sin tres,
que la vida va y viene y que no se detiene...
Y, qué sé yo,
pero miénteme aunque sea, dime que algo queda
entre nosotros dos, que en tu habitación
nunca sale el sol, ni existe el tiempo,
ni el dolor.

Llévame si quieres a perder,
a ningún destino, sin ningún por qué.

Ya lo sé, que corazón que no ve
es corazón que no siente,
o corazón que te miente amor.
Pero, sabes que en lo más profundo de mi alma
sigue aquel dolor por creer en ti
¿qué fue de la ilusión y de lo bello que es vivir?

Para qué me curaste cuando estaba herío
si hoy me dejas de nuevo con el corazón partío.

¿Quién me va a entregar sus emociones?
¿Quién me va a pedir que nunca le abandone?
¿Quién me tapará esta noche si hace frío?
¿Quién me va a curar el corazón partío?
¿Quién llenará de primaveras este enero,
y bajará la luna para que juguemos?
Dime, si tú te vas, dime cariño mío,
¿quién me va a curar el corazón partío?

Tiritas pa este corazón partío.
Tiritas pa este corazón partío.

Dar solamente aquello que te sobra
nunca fue compartir, sino dar limosna, amor.
Si no lo sabes tú, te lo digo yo.
Después de la tormenta siempre llega la calma.
pero, sé que después de ti,
después de ti no hay nada.

Para qué me curaste cuando estaba herío
si hoy me dejas de nuevo con el corazón partío.

¿Quién me va a entregar sus emociones?
¿Quién me va a pedir que nunca le abandone?
¿Quién me tapará esta noche si hace frío?
¿Quién me va a curar el corazón partío?
¿Quién llenará de primaveras este enero,
y bajará la luna para que juguemos?
Dime, si tú te vas, dime cariño mío,
¿quién me va a curar el corazón partío?

¿Quién me va a entregar ...

Hey, Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
I'm not sleepy and there ain't no place I'm going to.
Hey, Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me,
In the jingle jangle morning
I'll come following you.

Though I know that evenings empire has returned into sand,
Vanished from my hand,
Left me blindly here to stand but still not sleeping.
My weariness amazes me, I'm branded on my feet,
I have no one to meet,
And the ancient empty street's too dead for dreaming.

Chorus

Take me on a trip upon your magic swirling ship,
My senses have been stripped,
May hands can't feel to grip,
My toes too numb to step,
Wait only for my bootheels to be wandering.
I'm ready to go anywhere, I'm ready for to fade,
Into my own parade.
Cast your dancing spell my
way, I promise to go under it.

Chorus

Though you might hear laughing, spinning,
Swinging madly through the sun,
It's not aimed at anyone,
It's just escaping on the run,
And but for the sky there are no fences facing.
And if you hear vague traces
of skipping reels of rhyme,
To your tambourine in time,
It's just a ragged clown behind,
I wouldn't pay it any mind,
It's just a shadow you're
seeing that he's chasing.

Chorus

Take me disappearing through the smoke rings of my mind,
Down the foggy ruins of time,
far past the frozen leaves,
The haunted frightened trees,
Out to the windy bench,
Far from the twisted reach of crazy sorrow.
Yes to dance beneath the
diamond sky with one hand waving free,
Silhouetted by the sea,
Circled by the circus sands
With all memory and fate
Driven deep beneath the waves,
Let me forget about today
until tomorrow.

Hey little girl is your daddy home
Did he go away and leave you all alone
I got a bad desire
I'm on fire

Tell me now baby is he good to you
Can he do to you the things that I do
I can take you higher
I'm on fire

Sometimes it's like someone took a knife baby
edgy and dull and cut a six-inch valley
through the middle of my soul

At night I wake up with the sheets soaking wet
and a freight train running through the
middle of my head
Only you can cool my desire
I'm on fire

I heard you on the wireless back in '52
lying awake intent on tuning in on you
If I was young it didn't stop you coming through
They took the credit for your second symphony
rewritten by machine on new technology
and now I understand the problems you can see
Video killed the radio star
Video killed the radio star
Pictures came and broke your heart...
and now we meet in an abandoned studio We hear the
playback and it seems so long ago
and you remember the jingles used to go...
Video killed the radio star
Video killed the radio star
in my mind and in my car
we can't rewind we've gone too far
Pictures came and broke your heart
Put the blame on VCRs...

If I were a green, so green, banana And you my starring pois, my guava whole For all of my views of your gentle ridges, fruit flies, singlets, death by fridges....HE'S THE ONE THAT'S IN YOUR BOWL!

Yeah but the circumstances cater, Muma came and took me from the tray Then all our world, our world did spin, eat my brother bake my kin Deep that Muma knows

that I wanna be more better, ripe, more wetter, up against the wall, Yes and I want to hold you only in comestible matrimony or find ourselves a better fruit bowl and I wanna B, and I wanna C, what's in it for ME?

'Course there's a bite in sunny kisses, no cupboards dark and vegetable blisses, let's blaze our way across the day, till the rot takes us away, all believing we can say "That..."

Indigestible matrimony

artist="Clam" song="Big April"

April is a good month for the marriage of an aging son And it is a good month for the marriage of a daughter too And if I were asked if I knew that they'd be true, I'd say "I do"

April gets better when you're travelling further south and you wait for your big brother to stand up and to open his mouth And if I were asked if I knew that they'd be true, I'd say "I do"

And it could be for the weather, could be for the leather it could be for the mugs, even for the rugs it could be for the family, or how about a terrible tabby, all blue and white and spatty? And it could be for the Honey, it could be for the Rock it could be for the laughter, or even for the luck it could be for the marks of consecrated sexual passion - it comes and goes like fashion. Congratulate them (while you can).

And if I were asked if I knew that they'd be true, I'd say "I do"

And it could be for the mamas, it could be for the papas it could be for the honies, it could be for the monies it could be for immigration, that's how you build a nation of men and if that's your scene, then Amen (while you can).

artist="Clam" song="Dunja"

Dunja don't you know I've been good, good as gold I've tried to tell myself our ways are fixed apart, but still I stayed now I'll only be I'll only be a little minute more, well I've been good now tell me what being good's for

Dunja where's my heart, where's the home that I can hold to me? I pray each day, up and down but I miss your cheeks Some stubble's just divine but this is more my hairy scream "I had a dream", it was long and if it means

Goodbye Kovács Dunja, then say it, OK it, believe it and bye...But first I'll return all the faces you made for me without a stone of ill will for your hard charm that can kill one that will hold you straight

Dunja learn your parts, flirt with waiters, weights and officialese Hug computers till there's spark, postmark everything and post it I'd add maths and music 'cos I think they're fun and clean In their essence, at their so extreme extremes

How are you, don't you know me? By the bruises I'm still going. I love you. "Well just control it, wipe my hand if you want to hold it"

Well if I don't lie too much, if I don't lie do you suppose, suppose suppose suppose

that someone to shut my eyes on, someone to twist my mouth would sign on every line of me, at the close of my horizons, "Dry as my Mouth"

There we go driving driving There we go lying lying There we go with a fleet of sources, no hard facts for fleet remorse, well if I don't lie...

That someone to shut my eyes on, someone to twist my mouth could sign on every line of me from the close of my horizons, "Dry as my Mouth"

Well how was I supposed to know the hands more smooth the lips more low, holed below the waterline by Cupid's bloody crossbows and dry as my mouth

I'm guilty of no prior convictions I'm tired of kissing nothing but goodbye I gave all as I got for a ship and a river The white Rhine dines tonight on the very stupidest of songs and singers

And I'm already leaving yes I'm all too full of the wind that leaves - I can't wait - with my lips still busy trying to make your name

We wore our music like it fit us - never looked inside to see what's ours At Molly's by the water I heard a good man's daughter say "just you and me...maybe And your rugged insecurities"

Verse 1[A]
Mama, he's crazy and he scares me
But I want him by my side
Though he's wild and he's bad
And sometimes just plain mad
I need him to keep me satisfied.

Verse 2[A]
Papa, don't cry 'cos it's alright
And I see you in some of his ways
Though he might not give me the life that you wanted
I'll love him the rest of my days.

Chorus[B]
Misguided angel hanging over me
Heart like a Gabriel
Pure and white as ivory
Soul like a Lucifer
Black and cold like a piece of lead
Misguided angel, love you 'til I'm dead.

Verse 3[A]
Brother, you speak to me of passion
You said never to settle for nothing less
Well it's in the way he walks, it's in the way he talks
His smile his anger and his kises.

Verse 4[B]
And I say sister don't you understand
He's all I ever wanted in a man
And I'm tired of sitting round this TV every night
Hoping I'm finding a mister right

Repeat Chorus[B]
Verse 5 [A]
He says baby, don't listen to what they say
There comes a time when you will have to break away
And baby there are things we all cling to all our lives
It's time to let go and become my wife

Don't wish it away
Don't look at it like it's forever
Between you and me I could honestly say
That things can only get better

And while I'm away
Dust out the demons inside
And it won't be long before you and me run
To the place in our hearts where we hide

And I guess that's why they call it the blues
Time on my hands could be time spent with you
Laughing like children, living like lovers
Rolling like thunder under the covers
And I guess that's why they call it the blues

Just stare into space
Picture my face in your hands
Live for each second without hesitation
And never forget I'm your man

Wait on me girl
Cry in the night if it helps
But more than ever I simply love you
More than I love life itself

I'm feelin'mighty lonesome,
haven't slept a wink
I walk the floor and watch
the door and in between
I drink black coffee
Love's hand me down broom
I'll never know a Sunday
In this weekday room
I'm talkin' to the shadows
One o'clock till four
And Lord, how slow
the moments go
When all I do is pour
black coffee
Since the blues caught my eye
I'm hangin'out on Monday
my Sunday dreams to dry
Now a man is born to go a lovin'
A woman's born to weep and fret
To stay at home and
tend her over
And drown het past regrets
in coffee and cigarettes!
I'm moanin' all the mornin'
And mournin' all the night
And in between it's nicotine
And not much heart to fight
black coffee
Feelin'low as the ground
It's drivin' me crazy
This waiting for my baby
To maybe come around

artist="Jazzy" song="Mac The Knife"

Oh, the shark has pretty teeth, dear
And he shows them, pearly white
Just a jackknife has MacHeath, dear
And he keeps it out of sight

When the shark bites with his teeth, dear
Scarlet billows start to spread
Fancy gloves, though, wears MacHeath, dear
So there's not a trace of red

From a tugboat by the river
A cement bag's dropping down
The cement's just for the weight dear
Bet you Mackie's back in town.

On the sidewalk Sunday morning
Lies a body oozing lif
SOmeon's sneaking 'round the corner
Is the someone Mack the Knife?

Louie Miller disappeared, dear
After drawing out his cash
And MacHeath spends like a sailor
Did our boy do something rash?

Sukey Tawdry, Jenny Diver
Polly Peachum, Lucy Brown
Oh the line forms on the right dear
Now that Mackie's back in town.

Off to see the world
There's such a lot of world
To see...
We're after the same rainbow's end
Waiting around the bend

Moon River and me...

My baby don't care for shows, my baby don't care for clothes,
My baby just cares for me.
My baby don't care for furs and laces,
My baby don't care for high-toned places,
My baby don't care for rings or other expensive things,
She's sensible as can be.
My baby don't care who knows it,
My baby just cares for me.

My baby's no Crosby fan, Dick Tracy is not her man,
My baby just cares for me.
My baby don't care for Mr. Tibbits,
She'd rather have me around to kibbitz.
Roy Rogers is not her style, and even Clark Gable's smile
Is something that she can't see.
(Oh, you lucky so-and-so)
I wonder what's wrong with baby,
My baby just cares for me.

Queen of Light took her bow
And then she turned to go,
The Prince of Peace embraced the gloom
And walked the night alone.
Oh, dance in the dark of night,
Sing to the morn - ing light.
The dark Lord rides in force tonight
And time will tell us all.
Oh, throw down your plow and hoe,
Rest not to lock your homes.
Side by side we wait the might
Of the darkest of them all.
I hear the horses' thunder
Down in the valley blow,
I'm waiting for the angels of Avalon,
Waiting for the eastern glow.
The apples of the valley hold,
The seas of happiness,
The ground is rich from tender care,
Repay, do not forget, no, no.
Oh,-------dance in the dark of night,
sing to the morning light.
The apples turn to brown and black, The tyrant's face is red.
Oh the war is common cry, Pick up you swords and fly.
The sky is filled with good and bad
That mortals never know.
Oh, well, the night is long, The beads of time pass slow,
Tired eyes on the sunrise, Waiting for the eastern glow.
The pain of war cannot exceed
The woe of aftermath,
The drums will shake the castle wall,
The ring wraiths ride in black, Ride on.
Sing as you raise your bow,
Shoot straighter than before.
No comfort has the fire at night
That lights the face so cold.
Oh dance in the dark of night,
Sing to the mornin' light.
The magic runes are writ in gold
To bring the balance back, Bring it back.
At last the sun is shining, The clouds of blue roll by,
With flames from the dragon of darkness
The sunlight blinds his eyes.

artist="Led" song="Rock'N'Roll"

It's been a long time since I Rock and Rolled,
It's been a long time since I did the Stroll.
Ooh, let me get it back, let me get it back,
Let me get it back, baby, where I come from.
It's been a long time, been a long time,
Been a long lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely time.
Yes it has.
It's been a long time since the book of love,
I can't count the tears of a life with no love.
Carry me back, carry me back,
Carry me back, baby, where I come from.
It's been a long time, been a long time,
Been a long lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely time.
Seems so long since we walked in the moonlight,
Making vows that just can't work right.
Open your arms, opens your arms,
Open your arms, baby, let my love come running in.
It's been a long time, been a long time,
Been a long lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely time.

artist="Led" song="Since I'Ve Been Loving You"


Oh!
Workin' from seven to eleven ev'ry night,
It really makes life a drag,
I don't think that's right.
I've really, really been the best of fools,
I did what I could, yeah
'Cause I love you, baby,
How I love you, darling,
How I love you, baby,
How I love you, girl, little girl.
But baby, Since I've Been Loving You, yeah,
I'm about to lose my worried mind, oh, yeah.
Ev'rybody trying to tell me
That you didn't mean me no good.
I've been trying, Lord, let me tell you,
Let me tell you I really did the best I could.
I've been working from seven to eleven ev'ry night,
I said It kinda makes my life a drag.
Lord, that ain't right, no no!
Since I've Been Loving You,
I'm about to lose my worried mind.
Said I've been crying,
My tears they fell like rain,
Don't you hear,
Don't you hear them falling,
Don't you hear,
Don't you hear them falling.
Said I been cryin, yeah!
Oh my tears they felt like rain.
Don't you hear them falling?
Don't you hear them?
Do you remember, mama, when I knocked upon your door?
I said you had the nerve to tell me
You didn't want me no more, yeah
I open my front door, hear my back door slam,
You must have one of them new fangled,
New fangled back door man,
I've been working from seven, seven, seven,
To eleven ev'ry night,
It kinda makes my life a drag, a drag, drag,
Ah, yeah, it makes a drag.
Baby, Since I've Been Loving You,
I'm about to lose,
I'm about to lose, lose my worried mind.
Just one more!
Oh yeah
Since I've Been Loving You, I'm about to lose my worried mind.

artist="Led" song="Wubba"

You need cooling,
Baby I'm not fooling.
I'm gonna send you,
Back to schooling.
Way down inside,
Honey you need it.
I'm gonna give you my love,
I'm gonna give you my love.
Wanna whole lotta love.
You've been learning,
Baby I been learning.
All them good times,
Baby baby I've been yearning.
Way way down inside,
Honey you need I.
I'm gonna give you my love,
I'm gonna give you my love.
Wanna whole lotta love.
You've been cooling,
Baby I've been drooling.
All the good times,
I've been misusing.
Way way down inside,
I'm gonna give you my love.
I'm gonna give you every inch of my love,
Gonna give you my love.
Wanna whole lotta love.
Way down inside woman,
You need love.

artist="Led" song="Thankyou"


*If the sun refused to shine,
I would still be loving you.
When mountains crumble to the sea,
There will still be you and me.

Kind woman, I give you my all,
Kind woman, nothing more.
Little drops of rain whisper of the pain,
Tears of loves lost in the days gone by.
My love is strong, with you there is no wrong,
Together we shall go until we die.
My, my, my, An inspiration is what you are to me,
Inspiration, look see.
And so today, my world it smiles,
Your hand in mine, we walk the miles,
Thanks to you it will be done,
For you to me are the only one.
Happiness, no more be sad,
Happiness....I'm glad.


artist="Led" song="When The Levee Breaks"

If it keeps on rainin', levee's goin' to break,
If it keeps on rainin', levee's goin' to break,
When The Levee Breaks I'll have no place to stay.
Mean old levee taught me to weep and moan,
Lord, mean old levee taught me to weep and moan,
Got what it takes to make a mountain man leave his home,
Oh, well, oh, well, oh, well.
Don't it make you feel bad
When you're tryin' to find your way home,
You don't know which way to go?
If you're goin' down South
They go no work to do,
If you don't know about Chicago.
Cryin' won't help you, prayin' won't do you no good,
Now, cryin' won't help you, prayin' won't do you no good,
When the levee breaks, mama, you got to move.
All last night sat on the levee and moaned,
All last night sat on the levee and moaned,
Thinkin' 'bout me baby and my happy home.
Going, go'n' to Chicago,
Go'n' to Chicago,
Sorry but I can't take you.
Going down, going down now, going down.

I am a man
Cut from the know
Rarely to friends
Come and then go
She was a girl
Soft but estranged
We were the two
Our lives rearranged
Feeling so good that day
A feeling of love that day
CHORUS
Twisting and turning
Your feelings are burning
You're breaking the girl
She meant you no harm
Think your so clever
But now you must sever
You're breaking the girl
He loves no one else
Raised by my dad
Girl of the day
He was my man
That was the way
She was the girl
Left alone
Feeling the need
To make me her home
I don't know what when or why
The twilight of love had arrived
CHORUS

artist="Rocky Horror" song="Swwet Transvestite"

Frank:
How d'you do, I
See you've met my
Faithful handyman.
He's just a little brought down
Because when you knocked
He thought you were the candy man.
Don't get strung out by the way I look.
Don't judge a book by its cover.
I'm not much of a man by the light of day
But by night I'm one hell of a lover.
I'm just a sweet transvestite
From Transexual, Transylvania.
Let me show you around
Maybe play you a sound.
You look like you're both pretty groovy.
Or if you want something visual
That's not too abysmal,
We could take in an old Steve Reeves movie.
Brad:
I'm glad we caught you at home,
Could we use your phone?
We're both in a bit of a hurry.
Janet:
Right.
Brad:
We'll just say where we are,
Then go back to the car.
We don't want to be any worry.
Frank:
Well you got with a flat, well, how `bout that?
Well, babies, don't you panic.
By the light of the night it'll all seem alright.
I'll get you a satanic mechanic.
I'm just a sweet transvestite
From Transexual, Transylvania.
Why don't you stay for the night? (Night)
Or maybe a bite? (Bite)
I could show you my favourite obsession.
I've been making a man
With blond hair and a tan
And he's good for relieving my... ...tension
I'm just a sweet transvestite
From Transexual, Transylvania.
HIT IT, HIT IT!
I'm just a sweet transvestite. (Sweet transvestite)
Sweet transvestite
From Transexual, Transylvania.
So come up to the lab
And see what's on the slab
I see you shiver with antic…
..ipation
But maybe the rain
Is really to blame,
So I'll remove the cause
But not the symptom.
I'm just a sweet transvestite. (Sweet transvestite)
Sweet transvestite
From Transexual, Transylvania…….

Verse1.[A]
Magaret Thatcher on TV
Shocked by the deaths that took place in Bejing
It seems strange that she should be offended
The same orders are given by her.

Verse 2.[B]
I've said this before now
You said I was childish and you're saying now
Remember what I told you
If they hated me they will hate you.

Chorus [A]
'Cos England's not a mythical land of Madame George and roses
It's the home of police who kill black boys on mopeds
And I love my boy and that's why I'm leaving
I don't want him to be aware that ther's any such thing as grieving.

Verse 3[A]
Young mother down at Smithfield
5am looking for food for her kids
In her arms she holds three cold babies
And the first word that they learn is please.

Verse 4[B]
These are dangerous days
To say what you feel is to dig your own grave
Remember what I told you
If you were of their world they would love you.

y si te piensas echar atras
tienes muchas huellas que borrar.

Dejame, que yo no tengo la culpa
de verte caer, si yo no tengo
la culpa de verte caer. (Coro 1)

Pierdes la fe, cualquier esperanza
es vana y no se que creer
Pero digame que nadie te ha llamado
ya estas otra vez.

Entre dos tierras estas
y no dejas aire que respirar,
entre dos tierras estas

outside another yellow moon
gone so old in the nightime
i went down to the street
i'm shining like a new diamond

A B

downtown trains are full
of all those brooklyn girls
they try so hard to break out of their little worlds

And they wave your hand and they scatter like droves
and i'm nothing that will ever capture your heart
and they're just pawns without the rules
be careful of them in the dark
oh if i was the one
you chose to be your only one oh yeah
catch you young and then
catch you young enough

E A B E A B
Will I see you tonight   on a downtown train  

 

E A F#m B

Every night it's just the same you leave me alone in the night

Oh i know your window and i know it's lit
I know your stairs and your doorway
I walk down your street past your keys
I stand in the light of the doorway
you watch them as they fall
Oh baby they all have heart attacks
They stay at the corner but they'll never win you back

Will I...
Oh lover my tears they fall like rain oh baby on a downtown train

artist="Tom Waits" song="Open Invitation To The Blues"

Well she's up against the register with an apron and a spatula,
Yesterday's deliveries, tickets for the bachelors
She's a moving violation from her conk down to her shoes,
Well, it's just an invitation to the blues

And you feel just like Cagney, she looks like Rita Hayworth
At the counter of the Schwab's drugstore
You wonder if she might be single, she's a loner and likes to mingle
Got to be patient, try and pick up a clue


She said "How you gonna like 'em, over medium or scrambled?",
You say "Anyway's the only way", be careful not to gamble
On a guy with a suitcase and a ticket getting out of here
It's a tired bus station and an old pair of shoes
This ain't nothing but an invitation to the blues


But you can't take your eyes off her, get another cup of java,
It's just the way she pours it for you, joking with the customers
Mercy mercy, Mr. Percy, there ain't nothing back in Jersey
But a broken-down jalopy of a man I left behind
And the dream that I was chasing, and a battle with booze
And an open invitation to the blues


But she used to have a sugar daddy and a candy-apple Caddy,
And a bank account and everything, accustomed to the finer things
He probably left her for a socialite, and he didn't 'cept at night,
And then he's drunk and never even told her that her cared
So they took the registration, and the car-keys and her shoes
And left her with an invitation to the blues


'Cause there's a Continental Trailways leaving local bus tonight, good evening
You can have my seat, I'm sticking round here for a while
Get me a room at the Squire, the filling station's hiring,
And I can eat here every night, what the hell have I got to lose?
Got a crazy sensation, go or stay? now I gotta choose,
And I'll accept your invitation to the blues

artist="Tori" song="China"

China all the way to New York
I can feel the distance getting close
You're right next to me
But I need an airplane
I can feel the DISTANCE as you breathe

Sometimes I think you want me to touch you
How can I when you build a great WALL around you
In your eyes I saw a future together
You just look away in the distance

China decorates our table
Funny how the CRACKS don't seem to show
Pour the wine dear
You say we'll take a holiday
But we never can agree on where to go

Sometimes I think you want me to touch you
How can I when you build a great WALL around you
In your eyes I saw a future together
You just look away in the distance

China all the way to New York
Maybe you got lost in MEXICO
You're right next to me
I think that you can hear me
Funny how the distance learns to grow

Sometimes I think you want me to touch you
How can I when you build a great WALL around you

I can feel the distance
I can feel the distance
I can feel the distance getting close

If I ventured in the slipstream
Between the viaducts of your dream
Where immobile steel rims crack
And the ditch in the back roads stop
Could you find me?
Would you kiss-a my eyes?
To lay me down
In silence easy
To be born again
To be born again
From the far side of the ocean
If I put the wheels in motion
And I stand with my arms behind me
And I'm pushin' on the door
Could you find me?
Would you kiss-a my eyes?
To lay me down
In silence easy
To be born again
To be born again
There you go
Standin' with the look of avarice
Talkin' to Huddie Ledbetter
Showin' pictures on the wall
Whisperin' in the hall
And pointin' a finger at me
There you go, there you go
Standin' in the sun darlin'
With your arms behind you
And your eyes before
There you go
Takin' good care of your boy
Seein' that he's got clean clothes
Puttin' on his little red shoes
I see you know he's got clean clothes
A-puttin' on his little red shoes
A-pointin' a finger at me
And here I am
Standing in your sad arrest
Trying to do my very best
Lookin' straight at you
Comin' through, darlin'
Yeah, yeah, yeah
If I ventured in the slipstream
Between the viaducts of your dreams
Where immobile steel rims crack
And the ditch in the back roads stop
Could you find me
Would you kiss-a my eyes
Lay me down
In silence easy
To be born again
To be born again
To be born again
In another world
In another world
In another time
Got a home on high
Ain't nothing but a stranger in this world
I'm nothing but a stranger in this world
I got a home on high
In another land
So far away
So far away
Way up in the heaven
Way up in the heaven
Way up in the heaven
Way up in the heaven
In another time
In another place
In another time
In another place
Way up in the heaven
Way up in the heaven
We are goin' up to heaven
We are goin' to heaven
In another time
In another place
In another time
In another place
In another face

And I'm conquered in a car seat
Not a thing that I can do
I may go crazy
Before that mansion on the hill
I may go crazy
Before that mansion on the hill
But my heart keeps beating faster
And my feet can't keep still
And all the little girls rhyme something
On the way back home from school
And all the little girls rhyme something
On the way back home from school
And the leaves fall one by one by one by one
Call the autumn time a fool
Yeah baby my tongue gets tied
Every every every time I try to speak
My tongue gets tied
Every time I try to speak
And my inside shakes just like a leaf on a tree
I think I'll go on by the river with my cherry cherry wine
I believe I'll go walking by the railroad with my cherry cherry wine
If I pass the rumbling station where the lonesome engine drivers pine
And wait a minute, yonder comes my lady
Rainbow ribbons in her hair
Yonder comes my lady
Rainbow ribbons in her hair
Six white horses and a carriage
She's returning from the fair
Baby, baby, baby
And if I'm caught one more time
Up on Cyprus Avenue
And if I'm caught one more time
Up on Cyprus Avenue
And I'm conquered in a car seat
And I'm looking straight at you
Way up on, way up on, way up on....
The avenue of trees
Keep walking down
In the wind and the rain, darling
You keep walking down when the sun shone through the trees
Nobody, no, no, no, nobody stops me from loving you baby
So young and bold, fourteen years old
Baby, baby, baby...

And I will stroll the merry way
And jump the hedges first
And I will drink the clear
Clean water for to quench my thirst
And I shall watch the ferry-boats
And they'll get high
On a bluer ocean
Against tomorrow's sky
And I will never grow so old again
And I will walk and talk
In gardens all wet with rain

Oh sweet thing, sweet thing
My, my, my, my, my sweet thing
And I shall drive my chariot
Down your streets and cry
'Hey, it's me, I'm dynamite
And I don't know why'
And you shall take me strongly
In your arms again
And I will not remember
That I even felt the pain.
We shall walk and talk
In gardens all misty and wet with rain
And I will never, never, never
Grow so old again.

Oh sweet thing, sweet thing
My, my, my, my, my sweet thing
And I will raise my hand up
Into the night time sky
And count the stars
That's shining in your eye
Just to dig it all an' not to wonder
That's just fine
And I'll be satisfied
Not to read in between the lines
And I will walk and talk
In gardens all wet with rain
And I will never, ever, ever, ever
Grow so old again.
Oh sweet thing, sweet thing
Sugar-baby with your champagne eyes
And your saint-like smile....

We strolled through fields all wet with rain
And back along the lane again
There in the sunshine
In the sweet summertime
The way that young lovers do

I kissed you on the lips once more
And we said goodbye by the door in the nighttime
Yeah, that's the right time
To feel the way that young lovers do

Then we sat on our own star and dreamed of the way that we were and the
way that we were meant to be
Then we sat on our own star and dreamed of the way that I was for you
and you were for me
And then we danced the night away
And turned to each other, say, 'I love you, I love you'
The way that young lovers do

Do, do, do, do...

Then we sat on our star and dreamed of the way that we were and the way
that we wanted to be
Then we sat on our own star and dreamed of the way that I was for you
and you were for me
I went on to dance the night away
And turned to each other, say, 'I love you, baby, I love you'
The way that young lovers do, lovers do, lovers do

Do, do, do, do....
