45 LYRICS

August 31, 2009

Are we not men?  Are friends electric?

Are you ready to be heartbroken?

I just called to say I love you.

I was only joking.

Love will get you like a case of anthrax

Love hurts, love will tear us apart

My love wears forbidden colours

Only love can break your heart

I lived my life by 45

I lived my life by 45

I lived my life by 45

By 45

Groove is in the heart

I know you got soul

Everybody needs somebody to love

I’m out of control

I can see clearly now

I would rather go blind

I can’t you out of my head

You were always on my mind

I lived my life by 45

I lived my life by 45

I lived my life by 45

By 45

There’s nothing worth talking about

Nothing I couldn’t live without

That can’t be said in three minutes flat

Of vinyl spinning on a rubber mat

Hey Joe

Louie Louie

Geno

Gloria

I lived my life by 45

I lived my life by 45

I lived my life by 45

By 45

Arthur Ashe LYRICS

August 31, 2009

Arthur and me, we’re out playing class 3

And we’re losing all the weight that

The world bequeaths

Keeping you unbelievers

On the edge of your seats

Because love means nothing

Until you’ve held control

Then thrown it away

And then something magical

Reveals itself in recklessness

I work for the state, I commute, I eat late

And there’s so much life

I’ve chosen not to investigate

But here on court with Arthur

Is where I’ve tasted greatness

And love, which means nothing

Until you’ve held control

Then thrown it away

And then something magical

Reveals itself to be love

To mean something

It means something

To Arthur Ashe and me

Let those inches decide

If the ball’s in or wide

It’s nothing to Arthur and me

We elect to be free

Of the flail and the strain

We just play every game

And each point and each shot

Like it’s all that we’ve got

To enjoy and to prove

That we live and we move

Hit a true and free ball

Let it fall where it falls

And we’ll never play easy

No, never play easy

Easy’s the enemy

Of Arthur’s beauty

In dark I drive home

I don’t switch on my phone

I just sit there aching

On my couch alone

Then Arthur sits down beside me

And we talk about love

Kingfisher Blue LYRICS

August 31, 2009

I run alone along a long and lonely path

Hard by the secret river that cuts through the city’s heart

No one pursues; nobody I’d be bothered to pursue

I run alone just hoping for that flash of turquoise blue

I walk in crowds of strangers in a strange and crowded street

I fish for eyes, and hold my gaze with every eye I meet

I walk in crowds, I wait for accident or luck or you

You’ve made me wait – you’re always late and beautiful and blue

Kingfisher Blue

So hard to find, so clear, so true

Kingfisher Blue

Kingfisher Blue

Here I am.  Where are you?

Take every word with just a pinch of disarray

Take every thought as far as it will bear for you to take

And take the chance today will be the day your run takes you

To where you glance just fleetingly that flash of turquoise blue

Kingfisher Blue

I find you then lose you again

Kingfisher Blue

Kingfisher Blue

I’m still here.  Where are you?

Happiness (LYRICS)

August 31, 2009

The world’s grown hot

And your love’s grown cold

And you’re growing old

And you still know no God

So what?

You still draw breath

And while you’re still alive

You might find what you’ve been striving for

One place you’ve not looked yet

Find your happiness

Find your happiness

Find your happiness inside

Your heart’s so dark

You never go inside

And so you never find

The thing that makes you spark

You jerk

You got just one job to do

You just got one short life

You can’t love another right

Until you fall in love with you

Find your happiness

Find your happiness

Find your happiness inside

And everybody keeps telling you

What you should do

But everybody happens to be wrong

You won’t find your happiness

In big success or sweet caress

If you can’t be happy

Singing your own sweet song

Find your happiness

Find your happiness

Find your happiness inside
