Lyrics

Wedding Cake

You told all your friends,
"He's someone I'll regret."
He's out there setting fires to
The demons in his head

Once you called it perfect love
You now call it accident
Do you sit with your photo books
Wondering where it went

It was clearly never meant to be

You told all your friends,
"He's someone I'll forget."
How do you erase the ghost
Who sleeps inside your bed

Throw away your wedding rings
Give away the gown
Say goodbye to the accident
Who only brought you down

It was clearly never meant to be

You told all your friends,
"He's someone I'll regret."
He's out there setting fires to
The demons in his head

Once you called it perfect love
You now call it accident
Do you sit with your photo books
Wondering where he went

It was clearly never meant to be

Angel of May

It's getting hard to pay attention, pay attention to you
Always trying to work it out, work it out, work it out
But a girl you love behind still hangs around
She's always wondering, wondering when you'll come back

The fact is you are not
You will never at all
The fact is you are not

It's getting hard to pay attention, pay attention now
But a girl you love behind still comes around
She's always asking asking, "When will he return?"
I can give her no answer answer

The fact is you are not
You will never at all
The fact is are not
You will never at all

The fact is you are not

At all

Treasures of Gold

He came from the nearby town
And showed up at your door
Says, "I'm here to take good care of you
And your children four."

He stayed with you all day and night
And took you as his wife
He showered you with gifts of gold
And loved you with his life

I've got treasures of gold

And then one day the soldiers came
And said there was a war
He grabbed his gun and turned to kiss
The family he adored

The woman said her last goodbye
While falling to the floor
She took all his photographs
And hung them on the door

I've got treasures of gold

Yuma, AZ

Once met a girl in Yuma, Arizona
Whose mother was dyslexic like mine
Her grandpa owned a ranch, it's where she learned to dance
I hear she goes out dancing all the time

When it rains, it pours in Yuma, Arizona
When it rains, it pours
And when the sun goes down
You know where she'll be found
Dancing out in the street

She met a boy who worked as a waiter
Down at the local five and dime
She took him to the ranch, it's where he learned to dance
I hear they go out dancing all the time

When it rains, it pours in Yuma, Arizona
When it rains, it pours
And when the sun goes down
You know where they'll be found
Dancing out in the street

When it rains, it pours in Yuma, Arizona
When it rains, it pours
And when the sun goes down
You know where I'll be found
Dancing out in the street

The Joke Is Over

People laugh and pointing at you
They make those jokes and laughing about
Oh, I never did those things

They will make fun of you but not me
They will make fun of you but not me
No I never got it at all

Laughing with you
Not at you

People laugh and pointed at you
They make those jokes and laughing about
Oh, I never did those things

They will make fun of you but not me
No I never got the joke

Laughing with you
Not at you

They will make fun of you but not me

Laughing with you
Not at you

Space Age Mom

You believe in flying saucers,
Aliens, and purple monsters
And somehow I think you're the only one
You're saying to me, "I'll never believe this
Just last night I spoke with Elvis
And we went out on a shopping spree."

And you, you're the crazy one
And you, you're just having fun
So you, you're my space age mom

Call your friends at the psychic connection
Tell 'em about the stars' convention
And we can all ride down in your space age car
Tofu hot dogs, meditation,
Reading books by Carl Sagan
No doubt about it, you're one of a kind

And you, you're the crazy one
And you, you're just having fun
So you, you're my space age mom

Circus, Circus, Circus

The clown you noticed stood right by your window side
And took a look at you
Enjoy the circus, take a ride on an elephant you'd like
Tonight the ride's on me

He gave you a flower
It squirted water right in your eye
It made you cry
He says, "I'm sorry."
And takes you for a carousel ride
Tonight the rides are free

Take a ride, the ride's on me

Hell or Highwater

Turn off the fountain
Here comes a landslide, down comes a mountain
Mother is crying, "Where are my children?"
They're up in heaven

"Did you get to close your eyes father?" said his son
I think this is the big surprise
We were waiting for

Turn off the fountain
Here comes a landslide, down comes a mountain
Mother is crying, "Where are my children?"
They're all in heaven

"Did you get to close your eyes father?" said his son
I think this is the big surprise
We were waiting for

Independent

Can I ask a question
Were we meant to be?
Face the wrong direction
Turn around to see
You'll see it's me
And I don't want to play these games
And you know I know
You know it's not the same

I don't need you anymore
I'm independent there's nothing to say
I don't need you anymore now
I'm independent don't you walk away

Can I ask a question
Were we meant to be?
Face the wrong direction
Don't say you don't need me
I know you do. You do when you call to me

I know you do you do, when you call to me


I don't need you anymore
I'm independent there's nothing to say
I don't need you anymore now
I'm independent there's nothing to say
I'm independent don't you walk away

Purple Anteater

Purple anteater waits on the corner
Winking one eye, "I'm sly"
Open eyes just to see, he's waiting for the people,
and you don't wait at all. See them fall

When you think it's easy
Just believe you're deceived

The anteater waits for the bus
He's waiting for his mom
Where's she gone?

So he sits down by the phone
Feeling tired and alone
When will she appear?
It's not clear

When you think it's easy
Just believe you're deceived

The anteater waits for the bus
He's waiting for his mom
Where's she gone?

Sarah

She's gonna come in and say how are you
My day was pretty blue
Sit on the sofa, she'll take off her shoes
And think of something fun to do

She's wearing my sweater
She's asleep in my bedroom
She'll borrow my wardrobe for a week

She's watching the TV
She's out on the front porch
She's running rampant in the streets

Sarah takes on the world
She'll prove that the girl was more than you thought

She's gonna come in and say how are you
My day was pretty blue
Sit on the sofa she'll take off her shoes
And think of something fun to do

She's wearing my sweater
She'll sleep in my bedroom
She'll borrow my wardrobe for a week

She's watching the TV
She's out on the front porch
She's running rampant in the streets

Sarah takes on the world
She'll prove that the girl was more than you thought


Halo Friendly

I'm standing on the top of the moon, looking down at you
You're tying your left shoe
I'm standing on the top of the star, wondering where you are
You're driving in your car
I'm standing on the top of the world, looking at a girl
Who doesn't notice me

I'm halo friendly

I'm standing on the top of the world, looking at the girl
Who will someday notice me
I'm standing on the top of a star, you're standing in the yard
You're lonely just like me
I'm standing on the top of the moon, longing to be with you
If only you had wings

I'm halo friendly

Standing at the top of the world

Waters Ave. S.

Autumn falls down these streets we'll walk together
You'll take my hand inside your hand lightly

You used kiss me on the bus and now
I'll walk these streets alone

You used kiss me on the bus and now
I'll walk these streets alone

Meet me downtown we'll walk around just you and me
Hey there's my house Waters Avenue South

You used kiss me on the bus and now
I'll walk these streets alone

You used kiss me on the bus and now
I'll walk these streets alone without you

By myself
