From the shadow of Elvis (Sidewalk Silhouettes)

This is where it begins
This is how it comes on
This is where I belong
How does it feel when you get what you want?

This is where it begins
This is spotlights and skin
This is me and my stillborn twin
How does it feel when you get what you want?

This is money to burn
This is headlights and turns
This is what I have learned
How does it feel when you get what you want?

This is nowhere to run, baby
Nowhere to hide
This is it, come on ride, baby ride
How does it feel when you get what you want?

Elvis at 42
Jesus at 33
Me, I’m just 24
How does it feel when you get what you want?

 

You and me again (and again)

Gonna ride out tonight
Tires spin, all I can feel's desire
20 and believing it's all out there
Funny how you don't think about the end
Funny how it's you and me again
and again and again and again
and again and again and again
and again and again

 

Out of time

The last sweet shot of faith
And it's dawning
The pale, blue sky
The sweetened goodbye

Standing still
But now you're running
You're running
Running
Out of time

 

Already gone

I wake up early
And make my bed
Put on some coffee
Wake up my head

You’re already gone

I come home late
Late at night
Take off my shoes
Turn on the lights

You’re already gone
I’m all alone
You’re already gone

On days like these
I barely sleep
Barely eat
Barely weep

You’re already gone
I’m all alone
You’re already gone

 

The Chapman Autograph (Sidewalk Silhouettes)

In the prayers that we’re saying
In the masters we’re obeying
In the hi-hat and guitars
In the mountains
In the bars

In the shadow of your smile
In the airplanes going by
In the cry of your child
In the black and shiny, still sky
I see you

In the taxis rolling past
In the empty hourglass
In the silver screen collapsing
In the sound of time elapsing

In the movies
In the dark
In the Technicolor park
In the Lego cities crashing
In the shooting star that’s passing

The full midnight moon
Lighting this room
In old Johnny and June
In the scent of your perfume
In the old wooden heart
In the Chapman autograph

In the naked, orphan folksongs
In the death of all the old ones
In the champ & the contender
In the way I can’t stop remembering

In the spur of the moment
In this overcrowded basement
In freedom
In temptation
In fear
In salvation
I see you

 

Sweet lovesong (Sidewalk Silhouettes)

Sweet song
Sweet lovesong
Keep turning on
Keep turning strong

Sweet song
Sweet lovesong
Keep burning on
Flames getting higher
Then dead and gone

I got my cigarette
Got my soul

Sweet song
Sweet lovesong
Keep moving on
Keep moving on now
You’re on your own

 

Stand up straight (Sidewalk Silhouettes)

You can try it any way you want
But, there’s no way to hold me back

You can tie me down and fuck me up
But, there’s no way to hold me back

I see it coming each night and day
I could stand up straight or I could run away

If you never even tried it once
Then how do you think you’ll understand?

Well, you never saw the boy I was
Can you see the man I am?

I see it coming each night and day
I could stand up straight or I could run away

And I feel my heart explode
So bye, bye baby, I’m heading for the road
And I don’t know

But, hell I believe in it!

 

Rodeo

Calling out to backstreets
The rodeo is in town tonight
Ferris wheel
And scapegoats
The chain of masks
And nothing there to hold it

Slowly and wild
The art of control
Lustful life
Rodeo stays
Tonight’s the night

 

Out where all the rivers meet

Hear me knocking
Let me in
I’ve been out all night wandering

Out where all the rivers meet

 

Can’t make you come back to me

They’ve sent men to the moon, now
Robots to Mars
Built skyscrapers, airplanes
Computers and cars
They’ve conquered diseases
And crossed every sea
But they can’t make you come back to me

They’ve made whiskey to drink, now
Big Macs to eat
Hotels to sleep in
Shoes for you feet
Our song’s on the radio
On late night TV
But it can’t make you come back to me

I’d give everything just to hold you once more
I’d give everything just to hold you once more
To just hear your laughter
Your knock on the door
Just like before

They’ve watered the flowers
Put up the stone
Trampled the dirt down
Left me alone
I brought you some roses
Red as can be
But, they can’t make you come back to me

 

Rock‘n Roll Song

Yeah, there were lots of good vibrations
Crazy handclaps, radio stations
Funky fastlane, red guitars

Silver albums
Broken
Flowers
Kisses travelling through the wires
Be good

Please baby
I’m still young

To be discovered
To discover who you are

Death and time outlives the ocean
Lonesome glow in fast slow motion
Picture special
Naked truth

All eyes and strange blue hours
Choke and strangle
Glory
Power
Goodbye
Nice try

To be discovered
To discover who you are

Come save me Jesus
Come guide your son
Burn down these crosses
Please stop this song

Come lead me over
Turn on the sun
The bridge is closing
And the water`s gone

Come death, come judgement
Come night, come fall
Thought I`d gotten everything
Then it turns out I have nothing at all

Please God, I`m fading
Soon this scene will be cut
Please help, director
I did a bad role, but…

Please death be gentle
Do it quietly, calm
Pink angels singin’
Not a psalm

But a Rock’n Roll Song
