Riddles 06:09
May or June '62 Sitting on the stairs outside the set smoking a gold flake cigarette She, the lead he made his muse giving her the lines she had to say the cameras rolled and the actress played And oh sweet pageantry tangled itself in reality He began to believe he could make her see things differently Scene 2 Cue the lights the girl at night standing on the stairs outside her door He's waiting inside on the second floor (this refers to the person the actress is already with--possibly a cast member) Turn to leave but pause and breathe knowing this is under your control she'll leave him for you while the credits roll And oh sweet pageantry tangled itself in reality She began to believe all the lines were really happening Scene 3 (switch from narrators voice to first person) But I'm starting to notice you've been talking in Riddles and the frames out of focus Do it over There's a wordless reaction that I'm tires of seeing I just want you to need me When it's over When it's over I swear I'm not inclined to falling hard Deep bruises leave their mark on a lonely heart I guess I got carried away but I need you to stay in character So i'll give you the role that you play in my dreams So that I'm always asleep It's easy to take that way and I won't wake up to a cruel reality But I'm starting to notice you've been talking in Riddles and the character's broken Do it over There's a wordless reaction that I'm tires of feeling it's the reason I'm leaving When it's over Please don't try and pretend to be blindsided there was nothing I could do to please you I'm just a shadow on the screen and I don't think you'll ever see That the ending is as inevitable as the start Stop trying to change the script play the part We were meant to be together why can't you see But I'm starting to notice you've been talking in Riddles and the character's broken and its over There's a wordless reaction that I'm tires of feeling it's the reason I'm leaving When it's over credits

Raincoat 04:11
When I was a young boy 6 strings and America One not like the others Eyes like an island lost at sea Baptized in the ocean Heartbreak in the summertime Something like a spirit burned red rocks on a land locked beach Hidden in the hemlocks a stones throw from the synagogue Let me be your lover Arms that are open - lips and teeth When I am an old man take me to reunion Wear a yellow raincoat write my name on an empty beach It's been a long while just barely a memory You wouldn't remember me We took a bus ride invented an alibi And treasured a melody If we could slow down I'd know how to breathe deep and hold it in- side us forever I never thought I'd be here again Close your eyes tight and count to 10 Make me in the mountains a secret for the summertime Something undiscovered Eyes like an island rescue me Stay with me forever be my yellow raincoat Something like religion Over and over and underneath It's been a long while just barely a memory You wouldn't remember me We took a bus ride invented an alibi And treasured a melody If we could slow down I'd know how to breathe deep and hold it in- side us forever I never thought I'd be here ag ain 2x Close your eyes tight and count to 10 When I was a young boy 6 strings and America One not like the others Eyes like an island lost at sea Baptized in the ocean Heartbreak in the summertime Something like a spirit over and over and underneath When I am an old man take me to reunion Wear a yellow raincoat write my name on an empty beach Keep me here forever Stay still unexplainable Something like a vision Beautiful perfect and out of reach

I'll play the guitar and we both will sing Even when nobody is listening We'll sleep in a station wagon And drive it right back to Oregon Indian Summer and rock n roll 800 miles down an open road And when we run out of money We'll both get a job in a restaurant If we get played on the radio We'll pack a suitcase and hit the road You'll be my only baby At Christmas I'll meet your family And it's a long shot but we both can dream Of sold out shows at the Bowery I'll write another love song You'll play the wrong chords and sing along Turn the bass up lights low This is how we move when the beat is slow With your friends or on your own Turn the bass up lights low You don't have to leave you don't have to go But it's a long walk back home If you still be my baby I don't need much of anything Two years on do we need to keep Playing small clubs and losing sleep I'm still in debt from grad school You're drinking too much alcohol I should get a job and buy a house All of our friends have babies We still work at the restaurant Indian Summer and rock n roll Too many many more miles to go but I'll write another love song You'll play the wrong chords and sing along Turn the bass up lights low This is how we move when the beat is slow With your friends or on your own Turn the bass up lights low You don't have to leave you don't have to go But it's a long walk back home Yeah we'll always remember this time of year Never know what comes next but we both are here It's an Indian Summer the skies are clear Yeah we'll always remember this time of year Never know what comes next but we both are here It's an Indian Summer the skies are clear La da da - da da! Four years on and we do it well Travel by bus stay in cheap hotel You're still my only baby Maybe we'll start a family Sure sometimes maybe things get rough We'll scream at each other and break some stuff But I'll write another love song You'll play the wrong chords and sing along Indian Summer and rock n roll Taught me everything that I need to know I'm still in debt from grad school Sometimes we drink too much alcohol All our friends just wish they had Half as many worries and a mattress pad We'll write them another love song To play and their cars and sing along If you still be my baby I don't need much of anything Yeah I'll write another love song You'll play the wrong chords and sing along

Indigo 03:49
Three years down below I found you just to let you go Out with an Atlantic funeral Will I sink or stay afloat oh! I'll return with the Great White Put it's head on the wall But it just doesn't feel right After all the action Even with the adventure I still long for Africa An empty winter's afternoon With you Four years down below (four years down below) Wish that I could let you know (wish that I could let you know) They hung your portrait in the academy By the frame of Jaques Costeau oh! I'll return with a rare find To applause and awards But it just doesn't feel right After all the action Even with the adventure I still long for Africa An empty winter's afternoon With you Indigo Off the Opal Coast Where it rains the most Where we buried you And a strong monsoon Sank the rescue boat Oh youthful me Held such strong beliefs Worshipped empty sea Never realized Underwater I Never said goodbye Indigo Girl I miss you

Bellflowers 04:36
In the springtime when the Bellflowers bloom In the hills high above Santiago They hang their red petals low for Daniel Zamudio And the sidewalks that lead down to the sea Are lined with abused ghosts Haunting a blue coast An ugliness exposed Beneath the Bellflowers More than anything I wish for the rocks and the trees to sing A beautiful sound in the month of Spring And open their cruel eyes To see the Bellflowers More than anything I wish for the rocks and the trees to bring Men to their knees for the bones that sleep And open their cruel minds Beneath the Bellflowers It is Springtime in the country I love And the hills high above Santiago Echo a blue tone For Daniel Zamudio Who died by her grey stones And bled in her green garden She'll keep his grave close And ringed with Bellflowers More than anything I wish for the rocks and the trees to sing A beautiful sound in the month of Spring And open their cruel eyes To see the Bellflowers More than anything I wish for the rocks and the trees to bring Men to their knees for the bones that sleep And open their cruel hearts Beneath the Bellflowers

Bad Blood 04:01
Bad blood Had a little taste Now he wants a bottle Now he wants a case All night Takes it for the pain Hiding from the light Waiting for the rain So clean What an ugly stain Everybody's different And everyone's the same You can tell me anything Bad blood i'm listening But every little drop is punishing You know we're not that different Old love Have a little faith Dial up and call Let me know you're safe Stay clean Make your little bed Why are you still crying When it's all inside your head You can tell me anything Bad blood i'm listening But every little drop is punishing You know we're not that different Don't run away again Sunday's not permanent And we're not that different You can tell me anything Bad blood i'm listening But every little drop is punishing You know we're not that different Bad blood Had a little taste Now he wants a bottle Now he wants a case Three cheers Drinking to your health But nobody believes you When you don't believe yourself

Headphones 04:11
It's probably better not to talk about it But I've been feeling about as blue as hell I find something of beauty just to go without it And lose my spirit at the sound of the bell All the young bright boys with their jaw lines strong I can handle it with my headphones on With my headphones on And the wide eyed girls if they talk to me I don't have to look and I don't need to speak With my headphones on Nobody seems to have a goddamn problem Murdering anything they don't understand Yeah- they'll punch and beat it till it jumps out the window And leave it bleeding broken heart in it's hand All the young bright boys with their jaw lines strong I can handle it with my headphones on With my headphones on And the wide eyed girls if they talk to me I don't have to look and I don't need to speak With my headphones on And I always thought you were the one But I never knew how much it would hurt if I Heard a lie I'm trying not to think too much about it (trying not to- trying not to think- trying not to think too much about it) Jane always keeps her kings on the very last row I wonder if there's anymore room in the world for me I can't believe it I'm trying too hard not to think about it (trying not to- trying not to think- trying not to think too much about it) I'm still waiting for a phone call.... All the young bright boys with their jaw lines strong I can handle it with my headphones on With my headphones on And the wide eyed girls if they talk to me I don't have to look and I don't need to speak With my headphones on But don't ever tell anyone anything You'll start missing everyone

Australia 04:20
Truth, my love, spill out my clean white blood Something to wake me up Anything for you Fate, my friend, on with the chains again Off with my heavy head What do I care? Bring me down Down Down Bring me down Down Down Where there is no motion No second opinion Just crystal clear vision Brown skin and the open ocean Sun burned land Deal me an even hand Red dirt and golden sand I'll make my home I was lost Nailed to a Southern Cross Oh, what a priceless cost For a place in the world Bring me down Down Down Bring me down Down Down Where there is no motion No second opinion Just crystal clear vision Brown skin and the open ocean A-la-la-la-a-a-a-la-la-la Everyone answers In Australia Everyone equal In Australia

Goodnight 03:47
Memories are awful things They fill you up until you sink They've ruined every song you sang to me In the park beside my house After dark when stars are out They're still awake I wish they'd let me sleep Gather them together Play them on repeat Watching me come back to you come back to me So goodnight And I hope you spend it well Out of sight Out of mind Keep your cold hands to yourself And I'll be fine In a little while Just not tonight Summer lakes and middle names Early morning Etta James I wish they'd go I wish they'd fade away Walking back it's colder now Holding hands and stars are out I miss them but I'd like to go to sleep Gather them together Play them on repeat Watching me abandon you abandon me 'Cause I'm leaving I am leaving I am leaving you Say it out loud say it three time And believe it 'cause it's true So goodnight And I hope you spend it well Out of sight Out of mind Keep your cold hands to yourself And I'll be fine In a little while Just not tonight I'm still stuck inside your dreams and Soon enough the phone will ring But this time I don't feel like answering
