(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

Starshine

Starshine
You used to be silver
Love light, Lover's stare
Well you used to make me shiver
He said "Well this is the price that we would finally pay"
I said "I don't believe you I need you, I need you to stay"
She said "We've been together for so long"
And I said, Ooh I said
"Playing with fire was"

Ooh you used to be silver
Love light, Lover's stare
Well you used to make me shiver

Oh, this is the price that we finally pay
I said "No, I don't believe you
I need you
I need you to stay"
She said "We've been together for so long"
Well I said
"Playing with fire was
Playing with fire was"

Starshine
Ooh, You used to be silver
Love light, Lover's stare
Well you used to make me shiver
He said "Well baby this is the price that we would finally pay"
And I said "I don't believe you I need you, I need you to stay"
And she said "We've been together for so long"
And I said, And I said
"Playing with fire was wrong!"
Playing with fire was
Playing with fire was"

Starshine
Oh you used to be silver
Run, run, runaway on down
You make me shiver
Runaway, runaway
Why don't you runaway baby?
I told you what to do with your life but you could not save me
Well, I told you what to do with your life but you could not save me
Starshine

The Dealer

It was my fault, my move, my game
If I'd known a little more, I'd a run away
It was dark out and I held the cards
I was the dealer and it wasn't hard

I was the mistress of my fate
I was the card shark
If I'd a looked a little ahead
I'd a run away
I was the mistress of my fate
I gave it all out
If I'd really known you then
You'd a had to watch out

It was my fault, my move, and my wine
I see the sun now
And it still shines
But it was dark out
And I held the cards

Ooh, I was the dealer
And it wasn't hard
I was the mistress of my fate
I was the card shark
If I'd a looked a little ahead
I'd a run away

I was the mistress of my fate
I gave it all out
If I'd really known you then
you'd a had to watch out

I'll be the dancer
You be the player
I'll just almost hold you
You just almost stay here
I'll be the passion
You be the play
I'll just almost hold you
You just almost stay here
I'll just almost hold you
You just almost stay here

I was the mistress of my fate
I was the card shark
If I'd a looked a little ahead
I'd a run away
I was the mistress of my fate
I gave it all out
If I'd really known you then
you'd a had to watch out
If I'd really known you then
you'd a had to watch out

Mabel Normand

She's natural in her beauty
I guess you could say she's just an unapproachable comedienne
Having much faith in her talent
She did her work, no comedienne, and
She's not been the clown
She did her work
But her heart was quietly crying
I guess she even felt guilty
About even dying
Sad Mabel Normand...

So my friend is continuing
On a destructive road
His life passes before him like an unfortunate circumstance
He and his friends are at odds
And he is not winning
Why does someone always have to win
He says it's matter
Strange things do follow
When you love someone
So you put someone in exile
How 'bout I call you "Beloved Exile"�
He called today

He says..."�Don't give up"�
I ask him, "What are you talking about"�
I said, "Things are not the same"�
Since you've been gone, Rome burned down

And it's still all the same
So I moved away from the house that held
Nothing but waiting for messages
All through the day seasons, running with the sun
And I prayed every day for the answers

In a still, and almost silent night
He began to hide his beauty
And I learned to say the words
Well, just whose side are you on, anyway

Change sides
What does it matter
Still you change...sides
Every other day, you just change sides

So, continue on your destructive road
Your life passes before me like an unknown circumstance
You and your friends are at odds
And you are not winning
Why does someone always have to win
And all those races that are run
They cause patterns
Strange things do follow when you love someone
So you put that someone in exile
And you say, I'd write a book about it
And call it "Beloved Exile"�

Well, her life was a gas
Simply everything that happened
Well, the old lady said, "yes it was sad"�
She fought a losing battle
One day at a time
She might even make it through tomorrow
Maybe even another show
Natural in her beauty
I guess you could say she was just unapproachable
Baby comedienne
So beautiful
So beautiful
She fought a losing battle
She might even make it through tomorrow
So beautiful
So beautiful
Sad Mabel Normand...
So beautiful

Blue Water

Blue water
Sit and I wait
For the morning to come
Blue water
And I wait for the sound of my gypsy
Blue water

I sit not in flight
Hidden, not in sight
Blue water
Blue water

And I stare at the sea
And the sea smiles for me
And the sea
Is as moving
As a lover

I can't give up the night
I'm in high tide
I'd like to sail the sea
I'd like to take you on a...slow ride
I won't give up the night
High tides...
I'd like to sail the sea
I'd like to take you on a
Slow ride...
Slow ride...
Slow ride

Blue water
I sit and I wait for the morning to come
Blue water
And I wait for the sound
Blue water
I sit not in flight
Hidden, not in sight
Blue water...
And I wait for the sound
Wait for the sound

And I smile at the sea
And the sea smiles for me
And the sea is as moving...
As a lover

I can't give up the night
I'm in hide tide
I'd like to sail the sea
I'd like to take you on a
slow ride...
a slow ride...
I won't give up the night
I'm in high tides
I'd like to be your friend
I'd love to love you till the end
Till the end...

Blue water
I sit and I pray
For the morning to come
Blue water
And I wait
For the sound of my gypsy
Blue water...

I sit not in flight
Hidden, not in sight
Blue water...
Blue water...
And I smile at the sea
And then the sea smiles for me
And the sea
Is as moving
As a lover...
A love

I can't give up the night
I'm in high tide...
I'd love to sail the sea
I'd love to take you on a slow ride
I can't give up the night
I'm in high tide
I'd like to be your friend
I'd like to love you till the end

Blue water...
I sit and I wait
For the morning...to...come...

Cathouse Blues

I got the cathouse blues
I wear the highest of high heel shoes
Whoa...
Whoa, darling
It's hard to be surrounded
Where the women are lazy
And the men are rude

I got the can't walk, don't talk blues
I creep on cat's feet
I don't speak loose
Your...self in velvet
Forget we ever met
I got the closed-in, the cathouse blues

Blue-grey...
Eyes that say
I guess you don't remember
I guess that I was younger
Touché...
The cat sleeps alone
Sleeps only in the sun
But she'll awake the night and she'll be gone

Singing the cathouse blues
I need some new red velvet shoes
I'm still a dreamer's fancy
They say I'm pretty classy
I'm just a feline silky cat come true
I'm just a feline silky cat come true...
I'm just a feline silky cat come...true...
Yeah...

24 Karat Gold

Set me free, set me free
Is this what you wanted to happen to me?
Golden wings in the sunset
Take me back
All alone I waited
There was no one out there

There were dreams to be sold
(Chain of chains)
My 24 karat gold
(Chain of chains)
There was some love to be shown
(Chain of chains)
You said you might be comin' back to town
(Chain of chains)

All alone I waited
There was no one out there
In the rain she lay facedown
What is this freedom that she wanted?
What kind of freedom?
What kind of game?

There were dreams to be sold
(Chain of chains)
My 24 karat gold
(Chain of chains)
There was some love to be sold
(Chain of chains)
You said you might be comin' back to town
(Chain of chains)

Set me free, set me free
Is this what you wanted to happen to me?
Golden wings in the sunset
Take me back
All alone I waited
But there was no one out there

There were dreams to be sold
(Chain of chains)
You're like my 24 karat gold, chain of chains
(Chain of chains)
(Chain of chains)
You're like my 24 karat gold
(Chain of chains)
Yes you're like my 24 karat gold, yeah
My love

Hard Advice

Sometimes late at night
I turn on the radio
Your music fills the room
I just can't seem to get away from you

Saw a life size paper doll of you
In a record store
My friends as well as me
Can't seem to let you go
It was finished long ago

Sometimes he's my best friend
Even when he's not around
But the sound of his voice
Well, it follows me down
And reminds me

Another famous friend told me
Love does end
Make a clean break
He didn't talk about heartache
You have to let him go
Oh oh

Get over it
Remember how it was
Before our infamous pasts had begun
You have to let him go
He gives such hard advice, oh

He gives such hard advice
He says don't think twice
Turn off the radio
It was finished long ago
Go write some real songs
This is all wrong

Sometimes he's my best friend
Even when he's not around
But the sound of his voice
Well, it follows me down
And reminds me

Sometimes he's my best friend
Even when he's not around
But the sound of his voice
Well, it follows me down
And reminds me

You have to get over this
The pain's gone on too long
Go and write some real songs
Stay out of music stores
Don't buy that doll

Sometimes, sometimes

Turn off that radio

Turn off that radio
Don't buy that doll
Don't buy that doll

Lady

Come lately, I just keep waiting
I see nothing out there
The sun keeps throwin' out the light from the clouds
But there's no light in here
I know that things have to change
But how to change them isn't clear
I'm tired of knockin' on doors
When there's nobody there
You know I'm tired of knockin' on doors
When there's nobody there

And the time keeps going on by
And I wonder what is to become of me
And I'm unsure; I can't see my way
And he says, "Lady, you don't have to see"

And the time keeps going on by
And I wonder what is to become of me
And I'm unsure; I can't see my way
And he says, "Lady, you don't need to see"
And he says, "Lady, you don't need to see"

Come lately, I just keep waiting
I see nothing out there
The sun keeps throwin' out its light from the clouds
But there's no light in here
I know that things have to change
But how to change them isn't clear
I'm tired of knockin' on doors
When there's nobody there
You know, "I'm tired of knockin' on doors
When there's nobody there"

And the time keeps going on by
And I wonder what is to become of me
And I'm unsure and I can't see my way
And he says, "Lady, you don't need to see"
And the time keeps going on by
And I wonder what is to become of me
And I'm unsure; I can't see my way
And he says, "Lady, you don't need to see"
And the time keeps going on by
And I wonder what is to become of me
And I'm unsure; I can't see my way
And he says, "Lady, you don't need to see"
And the time keeps going on by
And I wonder what is to become of me
And I'm unsure; I can't see my way
And he says, "Lady, you don't need to see"

And he says, "Lady, you don't need to see"

And he says, "Maybe, you don't need to see"
Oh....

I Don't Care

How do expect to be here for you baby
I really don't care
You've never down much for me
And this is my cross to bear you say
"I Don't Care"

I just care of hard work I've owed you anywhere
How would my life be without you in it
(Each others broken, lost outside of it)
I Don't Care!

Getting in the way of my life is enough for me
And one more time I see you can cause anxiety (You say)
"I Don't Care"
Well I do care baby!
Why do you question me?

So how should I care when you go to leave me?
I don't care at all
(Each others broken, lost outside of it)
I Don't Care!
Of how hard work I've owed you anywhere
Lost outside of this baby

In trouble again
For the wrong things
I didn't know him
He didn't know me
There she goes again
Ooh, she says
"Do you think that this could be one?"�

I don't care (I don't care)
I don't care (I don't care)

She sees no evil, she is in love!
He speaks no evil, he speaks love
I've done so much baby why do I care?
You go out and leave me alone
You come home angry scream and shout
You say you don't love me...

So how should I care when you go to leave me?
I don't care at all
(Each others broken, lost outside of it)
I Don't Care!
Of how hard work I've owed you anywhere
Lost outside of this baby
I Don't Care!
I Don't Care!
I Don't Care!
I Don't Care!

All The Beautiful Worlds

What would I do
For just some time with you
(Don't give that to her, baby give that to me)
What will you do
When the thrill is gone, baby
(Don't give that to her, baby give that to me)
Oh... where have you gone
Have you gone so far from me
Leaving your touch
On the edge of my heart
What will I do
In the thrill of the night, baby
Don't give that to her
You remember my words

All the beautiful worlds
That I have seen so far
Have all fallen down
Ooh...
It used to be yours
Calm, beautiful, child-like victim
Calm, beautiful, child-like victim

See through the heart of you
I know where it goes
And I know what it means
I know where you go
To the edge of the night, baby
Don't give that to her
Baby give that to me

All the beautiful worlds
That I have seen so far
Have all fallen down
Oh...
It used to be yours
Calm, beautiful, child-like victim
Calm, beautiful, child-like victim

You say you're leaving baby
You don't want to tell me why...
And after all this time you think you
You don't even say goodbye...
Ooh...
You say you're leaving, baby...
And you don't want to tell me why...
After all this time you think you
Don't even say goodbye...

Ooh, well I see through that smile
And I see through the heart of you
(I know where it goes, and I know what it means)
I know where you go
To the edge of the night, baby
(Don't give that to her, baby give that to me)

All the beautiful worlds
That I have seen so far
Have all fallen down
Oh...
It used to be yours
Calm, beautiful, child-like victim
Calm, beautiful, child-like victim
Calm, beautiful, child-like victim

Smile...
And I see through the heart of you
(I know where it goes, and I know what it means)
Well I know where you go
To the edge of the night, baby
(Don't give that to her, baby give that to me)

(Don't give that to her, baby give that to me)
See through that smile
Don't give that to her
Baby give that to me
I know where you go
Don't give that to her
Baby give that to me
And I know what you do
Well, don't give that to her...
Baby, give that to me
(Don't give that to her, baby give that to me)

Belle Fleur

Mountain women
Living in the canyon
Canyon dancing
All night long
They form a circle
Hand in hand
Are you with me lady stranger
His voice rings
Are you looking for a man...

Will you dance with me
Will you dance with me, baby
Whoa...oh...oh...

This is no ticket for dreamland
A garden for fevers to grow in
As I run through the door of the long black...car...

Belle...
Will you dance with me
Will you dance with me, baby
Oh...oh...
And the days go by

Sunset sound
Sunrise
Sing to me
A lullaby
Sing to me
Of the daylight...
I will sing you a story of moonlight
Oh, whoa...
(will you dance with me)
Will you dance with me, baby

Sunset sound
Sunrise
Sing to me
A lullaby...
I will sing to you...
Of the nighttime...
I will sing you a story of moonlight
Moonlight...

Will you dance with me
Belle blue
Belle flower...
It's just love
It's only love
Oh...
So will you dance with...me...

Mountain women
Living in the canyon
Canyon dancing
All night long
They form a circle
Hand in hand
Are you with me lady stranger
His voice rings
Are you looking for a man...
His voice rings
Are you looking for a man...
Are you looking for a man...

If You Were My Love

Tonight there are no saviors
This night outside my window
Wasn't anyone's fault

When the moon rolls over the mountain
You are lost in dreaming
Where is the wild white rose

I try to explain
To someone who was crying
If you were my love

My hands reach for something
Someone that could tell me
Wasn't anyone's fault
Not anyone's fault

With our crosses to bear
And our dreams that still live on
With our crosses to bear
And our dreams that still live on

You were my love
However momentarily
Oh..
If I were the one
Who watched over your sleeping...
You would never...
Have been frightened
At all
At all...

With our crosses to bear
And our dreams that still live on
With our crosses to bear
And our dreams that still live on

You were my love
However momentarily
Ooh..
If I were the one
Who watched over your sleeping...
You would never
Have been frightened
At all...

Faithful

Carousel

For all you broken-hearted lovers lost
Go find another one
'Cause you know time won't wait and you'll be late
White rabbits on the run

It's hard to know what's good for you
I know she let you down
But the fever breaks when it's too much to take
So you can put your weapons down

And all you'll hear is the music
And beauty stands before you
And love comes back around again
It's a carousel, my friend

Never too late to change the pace
When the days creep up on you
But the goodness is something you don't have to chase
'Cause it's following you

And all you'll hear is the music
And beauty stands before you
And love comes back around again
It's a carousel, my friend

Ooh, Oooh, Oooh, Ooh, Ooh, Ooh,ooh, oooh

I thought I heard your voice in the thunder
It's the owl casting spells that we're under
I thought I heard your voice in the thunder
It's the owl casting spells that we're under
[2x]

Under...

And all I hear is the music
And beauty stands before me
And love comes back around again
It's a carousel, my friend

It's in the music
And beauty stands before you
And love comes back around again
It's a carousel, a carousel
It's a carousel, my friend

Time won't wait, so don't be late
White rabbits on the run

She Loves Him Still

No one heard her call his name
No one heard the sound she made
They wouldn't have liked it much anyway
To know that she still loves him

No one understands this love
No one ever will
Till his dying day
Not even he himself can change this
She loves him still

I miss my friend
I miss the sound of his laughter
She remembers him saying
Well, where are you going
Oh, and just what is it that you are after

No one understands this man
No one ever will
Till his dying day
Not even he himself can change this
She loves him still

So, how are you
Have you learned to deal with this
Well, oh no, she says
No, I have not learned
You see, I cannot deal without him
So the flame still burns
The flame burns on

No one understands this love
No one ever will
Till his dying day
She was heard to say
She loves him still

And the sands of time
Like shattering glass go past her
She still loves him
Oh no
They wouldn't have liked it much anyway
But she still loves him
And the sands of time
Like shattering glass went past her
Straight back to the sea

She still loves him

Watch Chain

(Vinyl Edition)

Lovely soft faded jeans
A very soft shirt in a light blue
Perfect dreams...
And a watch chain
Becomes you
You're just a watch chain
And it becomes you
A watch chain
Watch devil

Lovely soft tired face
Touching fingers through the kitchen lace
I think that I should hold your hand
But I'm hurting, darling
Do you understand
I'm hurting, darling

Be aware of the danger
As you cross the great water
Be careful of strangers
Who are new to your eyes
Beware of the people
Who look not straight at you
The keeper of the time is blind
The keeper of the time is blind

Be aware of the danger
As you cross the great water
Be careful of strangers
Who are new to your eyes
Beware of the people
Who look not straight at you
The keeper of the time is blind
The keeper of the time is blind

Watch devil
Keeper of the time
Watch devil
Keeper of the time...

Twisted

(Vinyl Edition)

You think you hear demons
I think you are the demon
In this place where the images are born
You remember your childhood
Oh, in fiery sequences

The sun goes down
Filling the air with color and winds
that lift you up to God

You fall to your knees
You embrace the storm
You no longer care
If it's cold or if it's warm
You live for the danger
Like your passion and your anger

You don't let go
You like to be twisted by the force
You like to be shaken by the wind
In this game that you play with God
You've been warned to retreat

You take it to the limit
When the winds come up
Crazy men, crazy women
Crying out for love
You like to save her
But you just can't give it up

You'd rather be wrapped up
In the arms of a storm
Crazy men and crazy women
In the storm

And the sun goes down
Chasing down the demons
You think you hear demons
Chasing down the demons
Crying out for love

You'd rather be wrapped up
In the arms of the storm
Chasing down the the demons
