Hollywood, Florida

I've been dreaming of Hollywood, Florida again 

In my dreams I'm an old man in a hospital bed 

Sucking for air I swear I hear Ginger tell Maryann 

That Gilligan and the Skipper are queer 

The clouds are moving slowly like a beaten army 

Across the last sky I’m guessing I’ll ever see 

I can hear her coming it won't be long    

So take me  So take me  So take me in your arms.    

Hunched over blowing on his harp 

Playing one more song before the sky goes dark 

She's watching the birds beat their wings in vain 

Against her crazy neighbor’s windowpane 

He's stretched out on the pink leather couch 

Watching her undress for a hundred for an hour 

That's all that he has left 

They know it's over they’re out of ammo 

And the lights are flashing in their eyes    

So take them  So take them  So take them in your arms.    

So take me  So take me  So take me in your arms.    

So take us  So take us  So take us in your arms.    

I've been dreaming of Hollywood, Florida again

That Flame of Yours

Remember when we went down to Mexico and kissed in the 

Caribbean Sea you laughed while chewing raw sugarcane and I went

Blind on that local drink I used to think I had wings when we made love

The pleasure was that intense and that I could fly above the scene of

Our magical love and take  a picture to pass on to our children to come

I take pills now I can listen to jazz remember when it used to make me crazy and 

Mad sometimes I dream of Thelonius Monk I love how he bangs on the keys

I heard him playing with Coltrane Shadow Wilson's rimshots brought me this

Peace I used to tell myself that there ain't no way I'm going near that flame

Of yours you see I'd heard the stories from the other boys and got caught

Once in that stare of yours I stand now having fallen into your fire knowing

I may never recover but also knowing that I'll never regret being your lover

Cause that flame of yours was worth it worth being burned to the core. 

That flame of yours.

Damsel in Distress

I walk outside it was dark as night there must be a storm a coming

Don't look now but here she comes another damsel in distress

She's carrying a satchel and a loaded gun aimed at your happiness

Don't look now but here she comes another damsel in distress

Lost somewhere in the Florida Keys with this beauty on my arm

Her name escapes me but her lips sting me she says the poison won't

Take long

Don't look now but here she comes another damsel in distress

Strike up a conversation with this lady of the night she's trying to get me

To spend but I've gone bankrupt and I've seen enough of flesh and unholy

Sin

Don't look now but here she comes another damsel in distress

The signs say beware of snakes but I'm more afraid of running so I jump the 

Fence and walk right into the fire

Don't look now but here she comes another damsel in distress

Crescent

I missed the train to New Orleans ended up in the straightjacket scene

Played board games and learned how to breathe but she still haunts my 

Dreams the night in that roadside hotel in the room with all the mirrors

I could see her from every angle and taste her sweat and fear we knew

We were doomed to be star crossed lovers and go mad with lust but 

We kept going deeper into the abyss of that love

I missed the train to New Orleans...

Hitchcock in the Dark

He reached across the chasm for her soul but she just laughed at him and

Dropped down the hole with his secrets and his heart now he's alone and

He's broken apart they're telling him it's ok yes you fell apart but not all the 

Way staring at a crack in the wall about had it with it all

Maybe he'll find a light

Fires are burning in the hills silicon mom is popping her pills and she's on

Her third bottle of wine running along the bay thinking about her New York

Days watching Hitchcock in the dark

Maybe she'll find a light

Traffic is light on the PCH might be nice to take a break and drive down the

Highway tonight

Maybe I'll find a light on the Pacific Coast Highway tonight

My True Love 

Her hair runs down her back right past her ass 

I always get lost in it when we make love in the grass 

She asked me if I think we will be cold 

I said what are you kidding me baby

We got each other to hold 

God it’s bold to give yourself up to love

I hear she’s gone out West maybe it’s for the best 

But I still got this ache in my chest and I can’t rest 

Until I’ve told her I love her 

Until I’ve told her I think we were meant to be 

Until I’ve seen that she too believes 

Now I’m driving into the setting sun 

Got one hand on the wheel the other on my gun 

I’m coming for you, coming for you my true love 

I’m coming for you my true love 

I remember when we were running along the fence 

And you were laughing at your hair blowing madly

in the wind  I remember when things were perfect

and the world stood still at my mercy 

Now it’s all gone bad and I’ve gone mad

Now I’m driving into the setting sun 

Got one hand on the wheel the other on my gun 

I’m coming for you, coming for you my true love 

I’m coming for you my true love

She asked me if I think we will be cold 

I said what are you kidding me baby 

We got each other to hold 

God it’s bold to give yourself up to love 

God it’s bold to give yourself up to love

Passing my days behind these beat up

broken down battered up shades 

In this building crumbling by the sea 

Drinking whiskey begging God please to set me free 

Or send you back to me

Now I’m driving into the setting sun 

Got one hand on the wheel the other on my gun 

I’m coming for you, coming for you my true love 

I’m coming for you my true love

Half Asleep

Step into the light it’ll be alright 

I just want to see you in all your glory 

I know the floor is cold 

I understand you’re scared 

But someday baby you’re gonna 

have to bare it all for me 

She’s half asleep imagining old 

lovers are calling her name 

Baby old lovers are fading away 

Lock your doors go ahead and hide 

It won’t be long no before 

the loneliness kills you 

I can see you trembling in the corner 

Oh I can hear you’re muted lonely horn 

Don’t worry baby no they’re 

coming over the hill 

It’s gonna be over really soon 

She’s half asleep imagining old 

lovers are calling her name 

Baby old lovers are fading away 

Is this my destiny to be 

stripped and torn apart 

Left here on the block to 

watch you laugh at me? 

You dodge the truth until it 

nails you against the wall 

And then you hang there like 

a fool and you watch your soul fall 

She’s half asleep imagining old 

lovers are calling her name 

Baby old lovers are fading away

Stranded

Six o’clock slouched on the couch watching the news 

Shot of baby, shot of a baby with a gunshot wound 

Young trashed hands behind his back 

Doing the perp walk for the cameras flash, flash, flash

Oh and I’m stranded eight miles from shore 

I’m stranded fed up and bored 

I’m stranded like China on the dance floor 

I’m stranded like a lonely old whore

A struggling actress is waving at me 

She must be looking for a light in this sick city 

It’s too bad I don’t have the time 

It’s so sad I have no desire 

To walk across the street and give her a flame 

To shake her bony hand and tell her my name

Oh and I’m stranded eight miles from shore 

I’m stranded fed up and bored 

I’m stranded like China on the dance floor 

I’m stranded like a lonely old whore

Bored on all fours again 

Oh you lost your contact lenses 

Turn it off please talk to me 

On the balcony staring blankly at another leaden sky

Oh and I’m stranded eight miles from shore 

I’m stranded fed up and bored 

I’m stranded like China on the dance floor 

I’m stranded like a lonely old whore

The Stars in the Night 
  
Lizard on the white wall are you as lonely as I am? 

I see you’ve lost your tail 

Well, I’ve lost my mind my friend 

Watch the ship closely 

It’s about to hit the rocks 

And all the sinful children are hanging in the stocks 

The stars in the night

The stars in the night remind me of the day I fell for you 

The stars in the night remind me baby of why I sing the blues 

The stars in the night 
  
I staggered through the steam rising from the street 

And right into her arms 

Well, she looked in my eyes and kissed me 

As she pulled the knife from my back 

And everything went black and I felt myself falling 

The stars in the night 
  
The stars in the night remind me of the day I fell for you 

The stars in the night remind me of why I sing the blues 

The stars in the night 
  
It’s shocking, isn’t it? How it all went down 

How she ended up like that on the cold, hard ground 

Well, I woke up and couldn’t breathe 

And they were all staring right at me 

Is this the way that it’s going to end 

Choked to death by snakes in the morning? 

Choked to death by snakes in the morning 

The stars in the night 
​ 
The stars in the night remind me of the day I fell for you 

The stars in the night remind me baby of why I sing the blues 

The stars in the night

Stay Down 
  
Down here it’s so dark 

Not like in New York 

Where the lights are always sparkling 

I’ve never seen so many churches in all of my life 

The people in this town 

They must be scared of something 
  
Get in back and stay down 

I wouldn’t want the bullets to hit your pretty head 

Baby won’t you stay down 

Baby won’t you stay down 
  
Did you see that guy in the wheelchair? 

He must sit there all day waving at the cars 

Don’t forget before you speak 

You can’t swallow it 

But you can choke on your tongue 
  
Get in back and stay down 

I wouldn’t want the bullets to hit your pretty head 

Baby won’t you stay down 

Baby won’t you stay down 
  
We hit the bridge just as the sun was setting 

The two of us are headed for Savannah 

We hit the bridge just as the sun was setting 

The two of us are headed for forever 
  
Get in back and stay down 

I wouldn’t want the bullets to hit your pretty head 

Baby won’t you stay down 

Baby won’t you stay down

Heartless and Cold 
  
I apologize for walking away like that 

It’s just that I was trying to hide the tears behind my back 

Everything that could go wrong has gone wrong 

And now I’m sitting here at the end of this bar with my head down 
  
And  I’m told by your friends that you think that I’m heartless and cold 

Heartless , heartless and cold 
  
Some guy is asking me questions 

About the girl whose name I’m mumbling 

What, what do I tell him? 

Are you mine? Is there an us? Or is there nothing? 
  
And  I’m told by your friends that you think that I’m heartless and cold 

Heartless , heartless and cold 

And  I’m told by your friends that you think that I’m heartless and cold 

Heartless , heartless and cold 
  
Ah, you should of remembered that I could read your face 

It’s in the way your eyes move 

It’s in the way your lips curl 

It’s the in the way 

It’s the way you love me so heartless, heartless and cold 
  
Headed uptown into the wind 

Trying to get you out of my mind again 

Hey beggar man can you show me the way 

Out of this dusty and forlorn place? 
  
And  I’m told by your friends that you think that I’m heartless and cold 

Heartless , heartless and cold 

And  I’m told by your friends that you think that I’m heartless and cold 

Heartless , heartless and cold 

And  I’m told by your friends that you think that I’m heartless and cold 

Heartless , heartless and cold

Terrible Longing 
  
What do you say we take a ride 

Get out of the city and get high? 

Go out to the wood, somewhere 

Where you can think straight and breathe the air 
  
Have I told you how good you look tonight? 

You should wear red everyday of your life 

Because when I pass you in the hallway babe 

I know just what I’d like to say 
  
I got a terrible longing for you 

That’s right baby 

I got a terrible longing for you 
  
As the slide runs across the guitar 

I’m going to slide over to your side of the car 

And plant sweet kisses on your neck 

And make myself a desperate wreck 
  
Would you like another glass of wine? 

We’re almost running out of time 

If  I could I’d burn it right on down 

I’d burn this house right to the ground 
  
Cause I got a terrible longing for you 

That’s right baby 

I got a terrible longing for you 
  
What do you say we take a ride 

Get out of the city and get high? 

Go out to the wood, somewhere 

Where you can think straight and breathe the air

You Left My Heart Tonight  
   
I met her on a road going south  

Last December in a driving rain  

She reached across to lock my door  

She told me she would rattle my cage  

If I knew then what I know now  

I would have left her on the road  

But I did what I did and now I have no soul  
   
It’s raining diamonds on Neptune  

As I count my sins by the light of the moon  

I went  searching through my soul  

I found no signs of life  

Baby I think you left my heart tonight  
  
They’re singing silent night  

Her eyes are lost in the candlelight  

And my eyes are lost in her  

She took my cross and I took hers  

And we laid them down together on a sunlit hill  

And we walked into the river together  
   
It’s raining diamonds on Neptune  

As I count my sins by the light of the moon  

I went  searching through my soul  

I found no signs of life  

Baby I think you left my heart tonight  

Baby I think you left my heart tonight  
   
Did you think of me when you were on your knees?  

Looking up at him  

Please lift my burden please  

I beg the weary priest  

But he just laughs at me and pours another drink  
   
It’s raining diamonds on Neptune  

As I count my sins by the light of the moon  

I went  searching through my soul  

I found no signs of life  

Baby I think you left my heart tonight  

Baby I think you left my heart tonight  

Baby I think you left my heart

With Broken Hearts

Sorry it took me so long to get here but she left me on the knees in the sand

 You should have seen me there in the desert smiling despite the pain

With broken heart with broken heart I go with broken heart with broken heart we 

All go

 Got your letter today so that's what it was all my fault?

With broken heart with broken heart I go with broken heart with broken heart we  

All go

There she is right on time with those pills of mine would someone please close

The blinds cause I've been having nightmares of being swallowed by the sun

 For a hundred dollars an hour you'd better hear what you want to hear

My dear, my dear, my dear I'm so glad I'm never gonna see you again

 Got your letter today so that's what it was all my fault? 

With broken heart with broken heart I go with broken heart with broken heart we   

All go

Hawks

The disaster is unfolding I feel it in my bones

Someone call 911 I see blood on the road

She keeps calling I can't pick up my hands are frozen

Must be the shock

Stuck on the highway her on my mind I can't escape this

obsession of mine stuck on the highway running out of time

Sick and tired of her on my mind

I keep seeing her looking at me telling me I'm perfect

and all she needs I wish those hawks would stop circling in the sky

They've seen enough of tragic loss of life

Stuck on the highway her on my mind I can't escape this 

obsession of mine stuck on the highway running out of time 

Sick and tired of her on my mind

I wish those hawks would stop circling in the sky

I wish these thoughts would stop circling in my mind

Playa Ruinas

Tangled up in silk and drowned in perfume her nails cut into your back

Heels on the floor the wind blowing through the door as you laugh

The nightmare is over you can here and I'll introduce you to the sun

And you can stop walking around dead with no eyes

You don't have to be afraid now she's gone to distant shores. I hear she's

got a new man and kids she's not your problem anymore

Don't get too close to the fire again you've suffered enough burns

Soon you'll stop seeing that visage of her in the mirror

Remember passing out on that Mexican beach and dreaming of your death 

in a field they had you on your knees with a gun to your head but you smiled.

You don't have to hideaway now she's gone to distant shoes. I hear she's 

forgetting you too she's not your problem anymore.

Tangled up in silk and drowned in perfume.

Sicily

When I first met her she wore her hair in bangs and her lips were ruby

Red she had a reckless heart and her mind was full of dread she drove

Too fast and loved cocaine and danced around her childhood pain I never

Quite recovered from the love we had when I heard she passed it broke

Me right in half

Oh baby you might be gone but I promise you'll live on in my heart and 

In the sound of the symphony as it tunes up for the crowd

I once went sailing in Sicily and felt myself let go the collapse came quick

Beneath those stars as the dolphins leapt by the boat when I came back it

Was all too much she had brought down my guard they gave me a gown and

Shots and pills and I came down feeling my scars

I guess I needed rest and to see the sun and sometimes it's nice to be erased

Next time I'll be sure to bring my guns and a dove in a pearl cage. I once

Went sailing in Sicily and saw Neptune laughing in the sea sometimes the 

thing that breaks you in two is the one that brings you peace

Thunderbird Lake

Hey pretty girl with the summer dress on can you help me find my way?

It seems I got lost on the trail to Thunderbird Lake I'm going to the site of 

My true love the one I could never shake when we were young in the sun on

The banks of Thunderbird Lake I wouldn't say I'm an atheist but I ain't got

Time for the afterlife you see I believe I found heaven on the banks of 

Thunderbird Lake

I wonder if her hair has gone grey like mine and if she still likes that Spanish

Wine and laughs like she's gone insane and loves to run screaming through

The morning rain

Her pretty girl with the summer dress on can you help me find my way it seems

I got lost on the trail to Thunderbird 

Ended up naked in the middle of it I still feel like I'm in the midst of that kiss

Hey pretty girl with summer dress can I give you some advice when you're

Young in the sun hold on dearly for your life

I wonder if her hair has gone grey like mine and if she still likes that Spanish 

Wine and laughs like she's gone insane and loves to run screaming through 

The morning rain

Her pretty girl with the summer dress on can you help me find my way it seems 

I got lost on the trail to Thunderbird 

Hey pretty girl with summer dress can I give you some advice when you're 

Young in the sun hold on dearly for your life

Fires and Earthquakes

I'm not sure but I could swear I saw a ghost coming up your basement stairs

Fires are breaking out and an earthquake is coming

She wore glasses and had blond hair she was mumbling something had

A deathly stare when you're home best pay close attention to the warnings

Of the spirit is lurking there

I'm not sure but I could swear I saw a ghost coming up your basement stairs 

Fires are breaking out and an earthquake is coming

If you put on those heels and that lingerie I promise you baby I'll go away

I just want to see you dance around one more time as I finish off a bottle of

Italian wine

I don't know but I could swear I saw your ghost laughing at me in my bathroom

Mirror fires are breaking out and an earthquake is coming

Once again I'm stranded in a strange hotel with a redheaded women, a good 

Catholic girl when you're lost best close attention to the warning of the spirits 

Floating in the air they might save your life and free you from the demons that 

Haunt you and the rules that constrain you

I don't know but I could swear I saw my ghost screaming at me in a funhouse

Mirror

Fires are breaking out and an earthquake is coming...

Throw Me a Line

Listen closely I got a story to tell one you wouldn't believe starts with a 

Socialite working on her knees ends with a banker escaping to sea

Throw me a line I think I'm drowning this time I've gone too far

Bring around the car I need to make my getaway I stole enough money

For a lifetime maybe if I ask she'll get in back and shoot and keep the cops

At bay

Throw me a line I think I'm drowning this time I've gone too far

She spoke Italian and wore the heels I liked and when we made love

I saw stars if you're thinking of ending it please stick around for the 

Perfect moments that come along

Throw me a line I think I'm drowning this time I've gone too far

Let Me Know

I see you still got those magic eyes you had when we were young wild 

Alive I know we're old but what do you say we get lost for awhile like back

In the day

Let me know when you know let me know when you know let

Me when you know you might want to let me go off on my own to find a new

Love or two it can't always just be you

Meet me at that cafe where we met that rainy day and maybe we can work

It out or maybe we'll just scream and shout

We can go drinking in a fancy hotel steal candy from bodegas make love on 

Museum windowsills run naked through the night on the Alabama coast tell

Secrets to each other know one else will know

Let me know when you know let me know when you know let 

Me when you know you might want to let me go off on my own to find a new 

Love or two it can't always just be you 

Meet me at that cafe where we met that rainy day and maybe we can work 

It out or maybe we'll just scream and shout

On This Thursday Afternoon

Her mind on other things 

She forgets about her cigarette 

And it burns her fingers and 

She jumps back and sees me 

And I know that just thought 

I wonder if that guy 

Always watches me when I’m 

sitting by the window sorting things out 

I walk away from the window and 

I sit down on the couch 

And I open a magazine and read 

about these kids who don’t blink 

Even though flies crawl crawl 

On the whites of their eyes 

Sometimes like on this Thursday afternoon 

I wish I was, baby I wish I was, baby 

I wish I was rid of this world 

Bent over, she can see her face in 

the mirror and she can see him not 

watching her dance again on her 

daddy’s lap driving his Cadillac 

I bet she was happy back then 

before she’d seen the things she 

now feels in her bones 

The things that make her ache and 

not want to get up in the morning 

On West 46th street between 8th 

and 9th everything is fine after the wine 

And now you’re sprawled out on 

the floor with your pants at your knees 

And you feel like a loser like never before 

Sometimes like on this Thursday afternoon 

I wish I was, baby I wish I was, 

baby I wish I was rid of this world

The Pill and the Knife

Has anyone seen the girl who 

was playing in the leaves? 

She was here a minute ago 

Running around, running around 

and laughing 

Running around and laughing 

Watching the road go by through 

the tears in her eyes 

Mama, you must have lied when 

you told me I’d be old when I died 

Now I know where she is I can 

stop my worrying 

I can stop listening for her footsteps 

coming up the stairs 

For her footsteps coming up the stairs 

Watching the road go by through 

the tears in her eyes 

Mama, you must have lied when 

you told me I’d be old when I died 

They said it was gonna blow over 

and we wouldn’t see rain for weeks 

So how come I’m stranded in this storm 

now baby drenched through my soul to my feet 

Watching the road go by through the 

tears in her eyes 

Mama, you must have lied when you 

told me I’d be old when I died 

I’ve been pacing these halls and 

scratching my eyes 

Trying to decide between the 

pills and the knife 

Between the pills and the knife 

Between the pills and the knife 

Between the pills

©COLMANMUSIC

 Did You Even Get a Tear in Your Eye? 

I see the flowers I sent you have died in the window 

And you didn’t even leave a note behind oh a note behind 

Did you even get a tear in your eye? 

Did you even get a tear, did you even get

a tear, did you even get a tear in your eye? 

History is over all there is, is porno 

And Jesus throwing punches at the moon 

Oh at the moon 

Did you even get a tear in your eye? 

Did you even get a tear, did you even get a tear,

did you even get a tear in your eye? 

I may not be religious but I fear God above 

And I’m tortured every minute baby 

By our failed love 

And I even got a tear,  and I even got a tear,

and I evengot a tear in my eye, in my eye,  in my eye 

The water is rising you can hear them scream

the sniper fires at the child oh at the child 

Did you even get a tear in your eye? 

Did you even get a tear, did you even get a

tear, did you even get a tear in your eye? 

Did you even get a tear, did you even get a

tear, did you even get a tear in your eye?

Dying Light of a Star

I caught a glimpse of you 

on Columbus Avenue 

Just as the snow began to fall 

My phone rang in the midst of a high 

Your image, I swear I saw it on the wall 

You’re so lovely, yet so distant 

like the dying light of a star 

Like the dying light of a star 

I picked up this old guitar 

that I found in the trash 

To give voice to the words 

raging in my head 

Hands in my pockets mind on the time 

When I couldn’t sleep 

and I thought I was nothing 

You’re so lovely, yet so distant 

like the dying light of a star 

Like the dying light of a star 

She got ahead of herself 

and she fell behind 

Now she’s stumbling through 

the park with a glass of wine 

On a night when the wind 

is right and you can hear the lunatics 

Howling down by the Hudson River 

You’re so lovely, yet so distant 

like the dying light of a star 

Like the dying light of a star

Monterosso 

I kept my eyes on the floor 

Cause I knew if I looked at her 

I’d cry and forget my lines 

Everyone was dancing 

Lost in the music 

We were, all of us were alive 

My hairs a shambles my minds a mess 

Oh they tell me all I need is rest 

But I know is all I need is her back in my dreams 

I woke up with the sun to watch her sleep 

And I listened to her, I listened to her breathe 

And since it was so pretty I whispered her name to myself 

Monte, Monte, Monterosso 

My hair's a shambles, my minds a mess 

Oh they tell me all I need is rest 

But I know is all I need is her back in my dreams 

Well, maybe you were right and when

you screamed that night 

Oh you’re only happy when you’re

miserable and when you’re playing

in those damn minor keys 

And at the end of the night it was just me in the light 

Singing for some, singing for some queen 

Dressed up like Judy with no place to go 

Nursing a, nursing a cosmo 

My hairs a shambles my minds a mess 

Oh they tell me all I need is rest 

But I know is all I need is her back in my dreams 

My hairs a shambles my minds a mess 

Oh they tell me all I need is rest 

But you’re only happy when you’re miserable and 

When you’re playing in those damn minor keys

 Black Eyes 

I just stood there watching her looking around for me 

For a second I thought of just leaving leaving her

to wonder whatever happened to me 

But as always I couldn’t resist her long black hair and her ruby lips 

But as always I got lost in her black eyes 

Well I got lost in her black eyes and I couldn’t find my way out 

I got lost like we all get lost sometimes 

Now I’m siting in the back of this bar 

Telling you all about it 

How I woke up to find her gone in a hotel outside of Chicago 

So if you ever run into a girl with black eyes be sure to turn away 

Otherwise you’ll end up just like me lost someday 

Well I got lost in her black eyes and I couldn’t find my way out 

I got lost like we all get lost sometimes 

I shouldn’t have kissed her that night 

When the sky was clear and the stars were bright 

And fallin’ madly out of mind sick to my stomach in love 

Well I got lost in her black eyes and I couldn’t find my way out 

I got lost like we all get lost sometimes 

I just stood there watching her looking around for me 

For a second I thought of just leaving leaving her

to wonder whatever happened to me 

But as always I couldn’t resist her long black hair and her ruby lips 

But as always I got lost in her black eyes 

Well I got lost in her black eyes and I couldn’t find my way out 

I got lost like we all get lost sometimes

Painted Pony 

Meet me at the border I have the necklace the you left last night 

Think of me and play that record 

When you get there flash your lights 

Cause I’m gonna prove that I love you I’m gonna regain your trust 

All you gotta do is come ride this painted pony with me 

All you gotta do is come ride this painted pony with me 

Draw a bath I’ll get the candles 

Well, maybe I looked too long deep into your eyes 

If I were you I’d burn those letters 

Or soon you’ll be out there like her shivering in the icy wind 

Cause I’m gonna prove that I love you I’m gonna regain your trust 

All you gotta do is come ride this painted pony with me 

All you gotta do is come ride this painted pony with me 

I pulled over to watch the lightning 

And I laughed at the scar on my arm 

That was the cut you gave me 

It’s been years since I laughed at something 

Ever since that night when you tempted me into the darkness 

Cause I’m gonna prove that I love you I’m gonna regain your trust 

All you gotta do is come ride this painted pony with me 

All you gotta do is come ride this painted pony with me

Catch Yourself 

Last night I was out on the roof and the lights of Jersey City 

They looked like stars 

Now granted I had had a few and she’d left that note on the door 

Sending me, rattling me, making me see things maybe 

And I say you ah you better catch yourself 

Before you fall too far 

Before you fall too far 

Under Miss Liberty’s gaze she makes her way to the island 

Entwined with him in lies she watches the smoke rise 

And I say you ah you better catch yourself 

Before you fall too far 

Before you fall too far 

Have you been through the fire and lived? 

Have you gotten lost in the blue flame? 

Have you known the answer but kept your mouth shut? 

She checks her watch there’s not much time left 

So she leaves her demons on the table 

And goes outside 

And I say you ah you better catch yourself 

Before you fall too far 

And I say you ah you better catch yourself 

Before you fall too far 

Before you fall too far
