Sunday Morning Cinema

(Parsons)

 

You ain’t been sleeping, you’ve been sad.

You had trouble keeping your heart on the tracks.

Maybe I could call you if you have time to kill?

We’d head into town for the double bill.

 

It’s not too far, and it’s nothing to hide.

I could even get you home by noon.

The people on the screen, they got worries like you do,

It’s nice to be alone in a crowded room.

 

Sunday Morning Cinema,

Makes me feel like maybe I was still sixteen.

Sunday Morning Cinema,

Makes me feel like maybe it was all a dream.

 

We make plans but there’s no time to steal.

We put up walls cause’ we got scars to heal.

Jump in the car, we can lose track of time,

Sit in silence, and feel fine for a while.

 

Sunday Morning Cinema,

Makes me feel like maybe I was still sixteen.

Sunday Morning Cinema,

Makes me feel like maybe it was all a dream.

 

And it’s a long way down,

It’s a long way down.

 

Sunday Morning Cinema,

Makes me feel like maybe I was still sixteen.

Sunday Morning Cinema,

Makes me feel like maybe it was all a dream.

Here Goes Nothin'

(Parsons)

One of these days I’m gonna lose my mind,

And I’ll thank you in advance to leave it where it resides.

Down in some hole, maybe out in the gutter,

You can keep it for yourself, just don’t say I didn’t warn ya.

 

Anyway, here goes nothin’

 

Since I was young, I’ve been trying to leave,

Now I’m weaving through his tangled web of my neurosis.

I got a new address and I’m flying high,

They couldn’t sell this feeling on street even if they tried.

 

Anyway, here goes nothin’,

Everyday, working on a dream.

I found a river to take me out to sea.

 

When the grain is weak and I get split in two,

There’s a thousand little splinters that I feel the need to hold onto.

But I’m gonna make the best of my tiny guests,

And carve them into pieces for the bugs and they can play chess.

 

Anyway, here goes nothin’,

Everyday, working on a dream.

I found a river to take me out to sea,

And I found a woman who’s gonna take good care of me.

Dream on, Lover

(Parsons/Rennie-Hynes)

 

Another August morning, you left two weeks ago.

Although I never like it, I knew you had to go.

As if I had the right to stand between this door and you.

 

Dream on lover, I will be waiting.

Dream on lover, I will be waiting for you.

 

Often times I wonder, how much I gave away.

And if I had my time over, would I still choose the same?

As if I had the right to stand between the road and you.

 

Dream on lover, I will be waiting.

Dream on lover, I will be waiting for you.

 

I know it won’t be forever this way;

One day you’ll come home and decide to stay.

 

Dream on lover, I will be waiting.

Dream on lover, I will be waiting for you.

Whole Lot of Courage

(Parsons)

 

It’s 2am and I got nothin’ but night,

It takes a whole lot of courage having you on my mind.

Sleeping with one eye open and my hand on the wheel,

It takes a whole lot of courage to pretend it ain’t real.

 

Look at you baby, working your charm

I’m just a fool dressed in denim holding up the bar.

It’s not a question of how but just a matter of time,

And I’ve been watching you out of the corner of my eye.

 

It’s not a question of how but just a matter of time,

It takes a whole lot of courage having you on my mind.

Sleeping with one eye open and my hand on the wheel,

It takes a whole lot of courage to pretend it ain’t real.

 

Walking home later, out of my head

Thinking ‘maybe you didn’t, but maybe you did’.

So I drank myself stupid and went out out on the town,

Cause’ I get so tired of playing it down.

 

Now it’s all on the table, but there’s that same old ache.

We said so much but then gave nothing away.

We ain’t even started, we got nothing to show,

It takes a whole lot of courage just letting you go.

 

Yeah we ain’t even started, we got nothing to show

It takes a whole lot of courage just letting you go.

You’re just another thing I’ll have to live without,

And it takes a whole lot of courage just to say it out loud.

It takes a whole lot of courage just to say it out loud.

Rodeo Pony

(Parsons)

North East bound like an Amtrak freighter,

Leaving the coast alone.

Telling everyone they would see me later,

Didn’t know I was already gone.

 

Into the charms of a perfect stranger,

Sinking like a stone.

Raises her arm and the silver spoon,

‘Are you ready for the ride home’?

 

You wanna cry alone.

You wanna cry alone.

You wanna cry, cry alone.

 

The wheels start turning and you think just maybe,

She’ll take you like a polaroid.

Frame by frame it starts to get real crazy,

Now you’re getting paranoid.

 

If you want the honey, pay the conscience money

If you like the way she moves her hide.

But you bit too soon like a rodeo pony,

She’ll take you all for a ride.

 

You wanna cry alone.

You wanna cry alone.

You wanna cry, cry alone.

Never Made a Promise

(Parsons)

An empty bed and a look that said, ‘It’s a show and I’m the star’,

She only talks in warnings, ‘I’ll kiss you and leave a scar’.

As rain fell down on a small town, she gave a wink as she got undressed;

To the muted din of rain upon tin, she slipped beneath the sheets like a beautiful mess.

 

Many men come, many men go,

And she never plans on sleeping.

Rolling her eyes as they put on a show,

And she never made a promise worth keeping.

 

Five foot six with all the tricks to keep a man inside her charms,

And when she moves to get over you, you never knew that were in so far.

Blowing smoke rings by the old porch swing she makes you feel like an amateur,

Hanging by a thread with a heavy head, you keep on forgetting to forget about her.

 

Many men come, many men go,

And she never plans on sleeping.

Rolling her eyes as they put on a show,

And she never made a promise worth keeping.

No, she never made a promise worth keeping.

Ain't No Easy Rider

(Parsons)

I’ve had some time to think about the stars,

I’m not convinced, I don't know, I sit and watch the cars.

Never cared much for heaven and hell,

But where I end up going, I hope I go there well.

 

Hang on Ma, I got something coming through.

I’d give anything to be someone to simply turn it loose.

But I got love and I got hope;

And I ain’t no easy rider if you give me too much rope.

 

I got days where I don’t know what to do,

I keep walking to an empty well with a pebble in my shoe.

Thought the grass was greener on the other side,

And I almost killed a rose, trying to keep a weed alive.

 

Hang on Ma, I got something coming through.

I’d give anything to be someone to simply turn it loose.

But I got love and I got hope,

And I ain’t no easy rider if you give me too much rope.

No, I ain’t no easy rider if you give me too much rope.

Made My Bed

(Parsons)

I made my bed, I made it fit.

I made my bed, now I’m gonna lie in it.

I been wrong, that I won’t fight.

I let my demons protect my pride.

 

I got my freedom, but it only made me think.

Without you it really doesn’t mean a thing.

 

Now I won’t go where the light won’t lead me,

Won’t go where you don’t need me.

I just got to find a way of moving on.

 

The words of love, a sacred sound,

We beat the odds, then they turned around.

You were something real in a world so fake.

With a welcome heart I gotta live with my mistakes.

 

Walking downtown trying to find another way,

And I got that same old migraine in my heart today.

 

Now I won’t go where the light won’t lead me,

Won’t go where you don’t need me.

I just got to find a way of moving on,

Because there’s nothing worse than waiting by the telephone.

 

I made my bed, I made it fit.

I made my bed, now I’m gonna lie in it.

Codeine

(Parsons)

It’s a good life, but there’s an end to what I can take on.

A steady hand to guide and keep the canvas nice and blank, alone.

 

But it’s alright, we’re leaving in the morning,

It’s alright, we’re not here to stay.

 

Glassy ocean, set adrift the things I’m bored to think.

Into stillness, comfort in the free fall - here comes the dawn.

 

But it’s alright, we’re leaving in the morning,

It’s alright, we’re not here to stay.

But it’s alright, we’re leaving in the morning,

It’s alright, we’re not here to stay.
