section 12 (hold me now)

he started the day with a mood and a shake
he was finally arranged
and someone said with a cold, hard chest, "you're a mess!"
he woke up at nights
he thought he was twice
he was moving away
cause everyone thinks that it goes away with age

hold me now
don't start shaking
you keep me safe
don't ever think you're the only one
when times are tough in your new age

hold me now
don't start shaking
you keep me safe
don't ever think you're the only one
when times are tough in your new age
you better be cool at the time

he's walking along with his soul in his lungs
ya stare at him long you can find a new song
everyone thinks they've got a new phrase
but you're still miles away
you're still miles away
i said, "you're still miles away."

hold me now. don't start shaking
you keep me safe
don't ever think you're the only one
when times are tough in your new age

hold me now. don't start shaking
you keep me safe
don't ever think you're the only one
when times are tough in your new age

hanging around the day part 2

well you like what you’re given
a lot of us are standing in line
and you'll find that you’re missing
what others thought you had all the time
and it's high but you’re reaching
the trees are getting harder to climb
so you try to begin there
cause life is such a wonderful slide
you're hanging around the day
you're filling yourself with blame
you're taking it all to a future sight
hanging around today
god only knows what you’re missing
well you know where you’re going
and knowing is a comfortable fight
and your wish is pretending to slightly move over the light
and you sigh at the rainbow
that's coming from the other side
it's a slide with a message
this trouble seems to give me some life
you're hanging around the day
you're filling yourself with blame
you're taking it all to a future sight
hanging around today
you're hanging around the day
you're filling yourself with blame
you're taking it all to a future sight
hanging around today

light & day/reach for the sun

light
and day
is more than you’ll say
cause all
my feelings
are more
than i can let by
or not
it's more than you’ve got
just follow the day
follow the day and reach for the sun!
you don’t see me fly into the red - one more you’re done
just follow the seasons and find the time
reach for the bright side
you don’t see me fly into the red - one more you’re nuts
just follow the day
follow the day and reach for the sun!
you don’t see me fly into the red – one more you’re done
just follow the seasons and find the time
reach for the bright side
you don’t see me fly into the red – one more you’re nuts
just follow the day
follow the day and reach for the sun!
just follow the day
follow the day and reach for the sun!
just follow the day
follow the day and reach for the sun!

wig in a box

on nights like this
when the world's a bit amiss
and the lights go down
across the trailer park
i get down
i feel had
i feel on the verge of going mad
and then it's time to punch the clock

i put on some make-up
and turn up the tape deck
and pull the wig down on my head
suddenly i'm miss midwest
midnight checkout queen
until i head home
and put myself to bed

i look back on where i'm from
look at the woman i've become
and the strangest things
seem suddenly routine
i look up from my vermouth on the rocks
a gift-wrapped wig still in the box
of towering velveteen.

i put on some make-up
and some lavern baker
and pull the wig down from the shelf
suddenly i'm miss beehive 1963
until i wake up
and turn back to myself

some girls they have natural ease
they wear it any way they please
with their french flip curls
and perfumed magazines
wear it up
let it down
this is the best way that i've found
to be the best you've ever seen

i put on some make-up
and turn up the eight-track
i'm pulling the wig down from the shelf
suddenly i'm miss farrah fawcett
from tv
until i wake up
and turn back to myself

shag, bi-level, bob
dorothy hammil do
sausage curls, chicken wings
it's all because of you
with your blow dried, feather back
toni home wave, too
flip, fro, frizz, flop
it's all because of you
it's all because of you
it's all because of you

i put on some make-up
turn up the eight-track
i'm pulling the wig down from the shelf
suddenly i'm this punk rock star
of stage and screen
and i ain't never
i'm never turning back
