American Beauty Album Lyrics
(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

American Beauty

Everything in your shadow turns to vapor
You pierce my heart like it was paper
Radio's crackling with the headlines
Sun upon your shoulder, wind's in the phone line
American beauty will you be mine
Out on this highway counting white lines

I remember last summer drifting through our eyes
We're in the high grass, my finger in your hemline
Boot heels click clacking, honey, when you shine
All them blue skies, hair sweeps the southern pines
American beauty forever inside
Out on this highway counting white lines

Your hand cups your breast pledging your time
Things we carried, shining skylines
Falling sparrow, sky torn apart
Dark shining arrow, your kiss pierces my heart
American beauty forever mine
Out on this highway counting white lines

Mary Mary

I heard they seen you yesterday in Charles Town
I heard about that story going round round
All I got's a book of love with pages worn clean through
A circle of gold and one bleeding tattoo
Mary, Mary, where have you gone to
(Mary, Mary, where have you gone to)

This town's a secret shared and shattered in a sad song
Just torn and tattered pieces of a love gone wrong
Hearts of stone and eyes gone deep blue
Lonely houses filled two by two
Mary, Mary, where have you run to
(Mary, Mary, where have you run to)

Summer storm blew in soft and cool
On the slinky town streets where love ruled
Now it's just a misty sidewalk with the rain drifting through
Lipstick case and one lonely red shoe
Mary, Mary, where have you run to
(Mary, Mary, where have you run to)
Mary, Mary, where have you run to
(Mary, Mary, where have you run to)
Mary, Mary, where have you run to
(Mary, Mary, where have you run to)
I heard they seen you yesterday in Charles Town

Hurry Up Sundown

It's the end of another working day
Come on and pack your blues away
Change your clothes, we'll go for a ride
To the other side

Hurry up sundown, hurry up sundown
Hurry up sundown, hurry up sundown

Over here it's easier to breathe
There's a place for you and me
And there's no devil here to pay
And come the light of day we pray

Hurry up sundown, hurry up sundown
Hurry up sundown, hurry up sundown

And together we'll ride the other side
We'll feel so free, just you and me
And I'll pray what is due
Till the night sees us through

And together we'll ride the other side
We'll feel so free, just you and me
When this long is day is through
We will dance in blue

Hurry up sundown, hurry up sundown
Hurry up sundown, hurry up sundown, hurry up sundown

It's the end of another working day
Come and pack your blues away
It's the end of another working day
Come on and pack your blues away

Hey Blue Eyes

They're holding a committee of treason and lies
Double speak and sedition then somebody dies
From the hills the smell of lilacs then the repeat of guns
When she closes the window and draws the blinds her first touch sucks the air from my lungs

Hey Blue Eyes, what you doing tonight
Hey Blue Eyes, it's alright

She says, "In this house we've abandoned history, in this house there are no laws
Just the false taste of paradise and then the fall
In this house the guilty go unpunished and blood and silence prevail
Here the dead remain nameless, the nameless remain jailed"

Hey Blue Eyes, what you doing tonight
Hey Blue Eyes, it's alright

In this house there's just the dust of bones, the basement's filled with liars
In this house our sons and daughters are spilled like wine
So come close my pretty darling and let me feel your disease
Tonight I'll have you naked and crawling at the end of my leash

Hey Blue Eyes, what you doing tonight
Hey Blue Eyes, it's alright

She says, "In this house it's so easy to set a world on fire
All you need is the need and the money and a soul full of reckless desire
Upstairs the landlord is dining here with his criminal friends
Don't worry, they'll have the bags packed and be long gone before the real f*cking begins"

Hey Blue Eyes, yeah, what you doing tonight
Hey Blue Eyes, it's alright
Hey Blue Eyes, what you doing tonight
Hey Blue Eyes, it's alright
