TRUE CRIME

Queen of wands

 

  Get out of The City
So I can hear my self think
My hotel room at the end of the hall

I can just sit here
      Nobody bothers me       
Serenading the ice machine


I'm the Queen of Wands tonight
I've been drifting but it's alright

They put flowers 
In the swimming pool
It don't cool me the way it should
What if I miss you
What if life's lost that thrill 
of the lonely love affair?

I'm the Queen of Wands tonight
I've been drifting but it's alright

I don't remember the last time

Someone thought about you
It's hard to say what can't be spoken 
Let the cards fall where they may

Kiss some stranger
In some stranger's bar 
It don't kill me the way it would
Maybe I miss you
Maybe life's lost that thrill
of the lonely love affair?

I'm the Queen of Wands tonight

I've been drifting but it's alright

I'm the Queen of Wands tonight

I've been drifting but it's alright

break so easy


Race to see what will kill me first
kind of bet no one wants to win
Packed my things in plastic bags I got from the front desk
But they break so easy


No, I don't want to talk on the phone
Every time I start to tell the truth
My voice gets caught behind my throat
And it breaks so easy


You could never be a normal person
I can't find the cash after the show
9am and you get drunk before the radio

Break so easy


Nothing now can keep me in my place
Not the cheap sunglasses you've got on your face
You were always in a different state
Anyway


Funny I think about that record player
I bought for us when things seemed brighter
Heard you sold it to a friend the day you moved away
And it breaks so easy


Grit my teeth whenever I remember
All the ways you me feel so small
Keep me up all night, slamming the door against the wall
And it breaks so easy


Nothing now can keep me in this place
Not the rusted razors that you drag down your face 
You were always in a different state
Now I've packed my things 

 

desperate things

 

Wanna feel those desperate things
Cold furs and platinum rings
But I know when the deal's gone dry 
Only light from highway at night 
Ohhhh here I go again 


They try to tell me that love is no good 
Falling trees in a forest 
No one there to hear what I should
I've been driving around This town
Ohhhh hell here I go again 
Here I go again 


And every consolation is my prize 
I've been taking blue and gold every time 
How can I convince myself what's mine

Ohhhh hell here I go again Here I go again 

Wanna feel those desperate things
Cheap motels between interstate rings
But I know when the deal's gone dry
Only light from the highway at night
Here I go again 

tied to the track

Well it's too hot for lovers too cold for friends
Find myself alone again
This is how the world ends in
My one room apartment


Don't believe a word you said
From the first breath to the last
This is how a heart breaks
Slowly then fast


Coming out of a deep depression 
I can't catch a break   
Every time I see the light
It's the eye of a train
I'm down on my back 
Tied To The Track

Find myself drunk again
Surrounded by some empty friends
This is called a great start
But first watch me fall apart

Coming out of a deep depression
I can't catch a break
Every time I see the light
It's the eye of a train 
I'm down on my back
Tied To The Track 

Ooooh if I could I would shut my mouth
But I can't keep from calling out 
If it makes any difference to you
I can't stop it now 

Coming out of a deep depression

I can't catch a break

Every time I see the light

It's the eye of a train 

I'm down on my back

Tied To The Track 

 

 

true crime

Sink my teeth into the universe
Just to try to catch a spark
Though you're halfway across the atlas
I can feel you in the dark
But I'm surprised when the fire starts
And there's horses in the parking lot
This is the true story of a love
This is a true story of a love


If it's half of my heart that you want
Or more of my time
I can meet you in the restaurant
Bring me back what's mine

I deserve better yeah I think I do
Sometimes the words can be cruel to you
They get lost in the jungle green
Of what I say what I feel and what I mean
But I'm surprised when the gun arrives
So I scream back down the dusty drive
This is the story of a love
This is the story of a love


If it's half of my heart that you want
Or more of my time
I can meet you in the restaurant
Bring me back what's mine

natural life

Even if nobody else does 
I can see you
As much as you’d like to
Hide away

Why do you linger standing
on the edge of the living room
Don’t you wanna be good
Don't you want to be free?


And I won't drag you down this time
And no one will do that again
for the rest of your natural life


Maybe I've got no business
Writing a love song
If every single one's gone wrong
Before now?

Maybe love was
More like a picture than a road race?
And I've been picking up paint
All over town

And he won't drag you down this time
And no one will do that again
for the rest of your natural life

All young lovers 
Your endings lead you back to the start

He was in love with a sound from the past
I can't remember
Sometimes it's hard to love when you don't
Belong


I changed my hair to thousands of fashions
I traveled around smoked cigarettes to ashes
But lonely finds you
And lonely grabs you by the neck


Are the tears still wet?
The palms up against the fret

Lay your bones on the bed
And try try to forget


Every line another song
Every lover an album cover
My collection lingers on and on


He was in love with a sound from the past
I can't remember
Sometimes it's hard to love
When you don't belong

What are we gonna do now?  

What are we gonna do now?  
What are we gonna do now?  


Venus or Aphrodite
Meet me tonight I've gotta bone to pick with you
Yeah you used to excite me
But I've been burning up that highway in between
Texas and Queens


Tell me did you come down yet
To see who won that bet?
My Reason vs. Love  
I lose again  
I lost control

Venus Aphrodite
Don't care what the hell they're calling you now
You can keep the milk + honey
I've had enough to 
Last a lifetime
Oh the troubles mine

Tell me did you come down yet
To see who won our stupid bet
My Reason vs. Your Love
I lose again
I lost control


But when I think of the beauty that you bring
Try as I might I can't stay mad all summer

What am I gonna do now? x 8

lonesome sugar

Come to me
Hang me in the stars lonesome sugar      
Bend my strings to bow
Already packed my things to go   
Lonesome sugar


Come to me
Dust in my mouth again
     Walk to the coffee shop and then         
                 I call on you                 
Lonesome sugar


This nowhere town
Can't find it on the map
Follow the sound
That leads you back to me


Come to me
Give away the things I love the most
      Keep me up all night for what you think I owe        
                     Your heart                   
Lonesome sugar


             This wayward town          
Can't find it on the map
           Follow the sound          
That leads you back 


This lonesome town
Can't find it on the map
Follow the sound
That leads you back to me

the breakers

I don't want to fall in love
I get lost in the breakers
I just want to sit still 
Let the waves take me out to the sea

When you're young
Everybody says
Isn't love the greatest thing?
Then you grow up
Waiting around for something to happen

I don't want to fall in love
I get lost in the breakers
I just want to sit still 
Let the waves take me out to the sea

In my dreams
Everybody says
You're the greatest thing
Then I wake up


Waiting around for something to happen

I don't want to fall in love
I get lost in the breakers
I just want to sit still 
Let the waves take me out to the sea

 

when you gonna

bring me love

 

When you gonna bring me love?
When you gonna bring me love?
When you gonna bring me love?
When you gonna bring me love?

When you gonna bring me love?
When you gonna bring me love?
When you gonna bring me love?
When you gonna bring me love?


I woke up in the meadow
The field inside my head
The northern cross below me
The beach above instead


I want you to be happy
Whatever that means
But


When you gonna bring me love?
When you gonna bring me love?
When you gonna bring me love?
When you gonna bring me love?


I'm empty as a pocket
There's nothing in my hands
But


When you gonna bring me love?
When you gonna bring me love?
When you gonna bring me love?
When you gonna bring me love?
