DAWN CAN'T DECIDE (E. Dando/N. Dalton)

Dawn can’t decide if there should be more of this porch
She’s sick of being inside
He reads the signs
And now they’re making out in Lancaster, just to pass the time

Curtis C called, left a message in Japanese
Dawn returned the call
Reviewed the newest Taang! release
Joe shoulda known that the Long Island Lolita would be the cause

Feels good to be Jesse on the inside today
Feels good to be Jesse on the inside today
G minor morning was a D minor dawning
G minor morning was a D minor dawning
G minor morning was a D minor dawning

And you strike, strike the right chord
The right chord in me
Strike the right chord

Bah bah bah bah
Bah bah bah bah bah, bah bah
Bah bah bah bah bah
No paperwork

Bah bah bah bah
Bah bah bah bah bah, bah bah
Bah bah bah bah bah

Bah bah bah bah bah bah bah bah
Bah bah bah

Dawn can’t decide
Dawn can’t decide

 


DECEMBER (E. Dando)

I'm not keepin' up your side of the bargain
As we all know, a woman's will can harden
You try and soften up the blow
Still I hate to see you go
I beg your pardon
A swimming pool that used to be a garden

Get it started
Bake someone a cake and fold my heart in
Drive around the lake and roll my car in
Roll my car in

Is it time to pull my chestnuts from the fire?
Oh my my
Should I diversify or keep my powder dry
It's early in the day
Still it's late enough to say you were a liar
And the truth becomes more clear as I get higher

Find a buyer
Claim yourself exempt and wear a wire
Sleep around until you're good and tired
Good and tired

Watch it bubble out of sight
Tell me psycho where's the knife
Set your watch to ruin my life
Yeah, tell yourself you're not my type

You're not keepin' up my side of the bargain
As we all know, a woman's will can harden
Try and soften up the blow
Still I hate to see you go
I beg your pardon

 

 

DEEP BOTTOM COVE (E.Dando/E.Luening)

Spoken: You're rolling
Thanks
This is called Deep Bottom Cove
Me and my cousin wrote it when we were thirteen and twelve

Sung:I woke up one morning
Looking in the glassy water
You could hear the surf miles away
I woke up my buddy he said let's go out in the boat(woah out in the boat)
So out we went on deep bottom cove
We heard a big thud and we were thrown out of the boat
So we drowned in the glassy water
Deep bottom cove, bottom cove, bottom cove
Deep bottom cove, bottom cove, bottom cove
Deep bottom cove, bottom cove

 


DIE RIGHT NOW (E. Dando)

And it's so good to hear him whispering his wishes inside you
Play along, there is no wrong
You've got to let him guide you
You're the first sweet little girl to have this love of mine
Forever with me till the end of time, time

Wake up baby to the fact that you're poor soul's un-clever
Change your mind give me your life
And you can live forever
Play along, there is no wrong
you've got to let him guide you
It's so good to feel him whispering his wishes inside you, inside you

I got to protect it
I got to keep it in my soul
I got to protect it
I must believe it
It's my code

I got to protect it
I got to keep it in my soul
I got to protect it
I must believe it
It's my code.

And then I went to the end of it, and the old man, well, he's ready to die.
And he said, "Well, Tom, sincerity's the best gimmick. Remember that."
And I say, "All right, be sincere, that'll win it?" He said, "That's it.
Sincerity and honesty," he said, "will do it. It'll trick 'em every time."
I said, "Well, sincerity and honesty; I never tried that."

 

 

DIFFERENT DRUM (M. Nesmith)

You and I travel to the beat of a different drum
Oh, can’t you tell by the way I run, every time you make eyes at me
You cry, and moan, and say it’ll work out
But honey child, I’ve got my doubts
You can’t see the forest for the trees

Don’t get me wrong, it’s not that I’d knock it
It’s just that I, I’m not in the market for a girl who wants to love only me
And I ain’t saying you ain’t pretty, all I’m saying’s I’m not ready
For any person place or thing to try and pull the reins in on me

So, goodbye, I don’t believe and I see no sense
In this crying and grieving, we’ll both live a lot longer if you live without me

 

 

DIVAN

Well it’s not much like a lounger
You know it’s more like a sofa bed
And if you get the feeling you’ll be hanging around
Well you can crash out on my divan
You can crash out on my divan

Well the TV’s set where it is
And you can watch it for as long as you like
But the minute you get tired of it
Crash out on my divan
You can crash out on my divan

Crash out on my divan
You can crash out on my divan

In the morning I got things to do
I’ve gotta be up and out by ten
But if you’re still asleep then I won’t wake you
You can crash out on my divan
You can crash out on my divan

Crash out on my divan
You can crash out on my divan

 


DON'T TELL YOURSELF (E. Dando)

Don't tell yourself it's okay
Don't tell yourself it's not true
I don't want you to hurt me
But I want to hurt you

Why would I wanna hurt you,
When you make me cry so?
Why would I wanna do that? 
It makes you want to die so
Oh, oh

Don't tell yourself it's okay
Don't tell yourself it's so fine
Why not what a fine day
I'm so glad that you're mine

Why don't you try more? 
You're ringing in my ears
I'm going to try more
Try to buy back my tears

Stop telling me, "It's okay"
Stop telling me, "It's okay"
Stop telling me, "It's okay"
Stop telling me, "It's okay"

Oh, oh

Stop telling me, "It's okay"
Stop telling me, "It's okay"
Stop telling me, "It's okay"
Stop telling me, "It's okay"

 

 

DON'T WANNA aka EAT IT (E. Dando)

All my friends have gone away
Gone away for a long stay
I love you or so I say today, today

Yesterday I felt no shame
Now my state is plainly tame
Day to day, today, today
Okay hooray
I don't wanna
I don't wanna

 


DOWN ABOUT IT (E.Dando/T.Morgan)

Gotta own up on my own somehow
Tossed the beginning and tried to live it down
Worked my way out
I been so down about it

Gets the same every time I shy
away from the blame, and to stand my time
You can understand why
I been so down about it

She’s gonna give me all the time I need
To finish it and if I can’t I’ll sleep over

Out like a light when it’s not plugged in
Fading around if it starts again
You just don’t get when
I been so down about it

Drop you hints that I hope you don’t catch
Fumble the keys and I throw the latch
You’re still worried that
I been so down about it

She’s gonna give me all the time I need
To finish it and if I can’t I’ll sleep over

Out of it, so I hoped she’d be there
Talk to her as a climb the stair, I told her

Gotta own up on my own somehow
Gotta own up on my own somehow
Gotta own up on my own somehow
Don’t you know I been so down about it

Gotta own up on my own somehow
Gotta own up on my own somehow
Gotta own up on my own somehow
Ooh I get so down about it

Gotta own up on my own somehow
Gotta own up on my own somehow
Gotta own up on my own somehow
Whoa so down about it

Gotta own up on my own somehow
Gotta own up on my own somehow
Gotta own up on my own somehow
Ooh so down about it

 

 

EAT IT aka DON'T WANNA (E. Dando)

All my friends have gone away
Gone away for a long stay
I love you or so I say today, today

Yesterday I felt no shame
Now my state is plainly tame
Day to day, today, today
Okay hooray
I don't wanna
I don't wanna

 

 

EVER (B. Deily)

We hit the highway in the shimmer glare of summer
And past the window all the trees moved by behind her
She tuned the radio ‘til music was around us
A rushing calm around our heart I knew had found us

It feels so good to me
I have to make you see

Why does this ever have to end?
I know commitment is not the trend
Don’t misunderstand what I intend
When I say this doesn’t have to end

We washed the dishes knowing everything was alright
And then together in the curtain drifting twilight
I know your laughter shouldn’t make me feel so scared
How could I doubt you? I know how much you cared

I hear it when you sigh
But I still don’t know why

Why does this ever have to end?
Why can’t I give you my heart and hand?
I think you’re too scared to understand
This doesn’t ever have to end

I see you standing by a window in the hall
Our eyes collide without a single word at all
The record asks: will you still need me when I’m 64?
I can’t imagine that I wouldn’t need you more

Too many tears to cry
I just won’t let it die

This doesn’t ever have to end
Life is so long and my heart won’t mend
You are my lover, you’re my best friend
This doesn’t ever have to end.

 


FADE TO BLACK

Life it seems, will fade away.
Drifting further every day.
Getting lost within myself.
Nothing matters no one else.

I have lost the will to live.
Simply nothing more to give.
There is nothing more for me.
Need the end to set me free.

Things are not what used to be.
Missing one inside of me.
Deathly lost, this can't be real.
Cannot stand this hell I feel.

Emptiness is filling me.
To the point of irony.
Growing darkness taking dawn.
I was me, but now he's gone.

No one but me can save myself but it's too late. 
Now I can't think, think why I should even try.

Yesterday seems as though it never existed.
Death Greets me warm, now I will just say goodbye

 

 

FALLING (B. Deily)

Saw you in the subway, twisting and falling
Train echoes in the stale air of a tunnel
Falling

Spinning in circles
We lose all direction
And fall where no arms can come rushing to catch us

Saw you on the 14th floor, twisting and falling
Scream bounces in the bright sun of a canyon
Fading

Hang on
Don't wake up

 


FAVORITE T (E. Dando)

I thought we had an understanding there
That wouldn’t leave too soon
Figure it over and you’ll find out where
Your green shirt’s gone

Had to hear about your Danish boyfriend
I forced a swoon
Then I went over to your dresser drawer
And now got it on

I got it on
Your favorite T
It never looked as good on you, as it looks on me

I got it on
I’ll wait to see
I used to wear it everyday, and now it’s twice a week

Fill in the shadows of a certain corner
You used to sit there
Got me a brand new lamp, plugged it in
And now the dark won’t fit there

Ain’t got the time or the inclination
To see this through
I’m looking up, climbing out of the station
And the sky’s too blue

The sky’s too blue
The sky’s too blue
It mightn’t suit me quite as well as it used to

I got it on
Your favorite T
I used to wear it everyday

 


FED UP (E. Dando)

I asked you what you wanted
You never gave me your answer
You may be a lover
But you ain't no dancer

The gleam in your eye has dove frozen stone cold
Gotta leave your side before it gets too old
Time out, time’s up
I really gotta go

Gotta find a way to let you know
That I'm fed up with you
Don't know what to do
Wish you felt it too
I'm fed up with you

Sit around and watch TV all day
Stare at me and ask me what to say
Fuck off, don't, just maybe, baby go away
I've said it before

Think I'll say it again, louder today
I'm fed up with you

 


FRANK MILLS (J. Rado/J. Ragni/A. MacDermot)

I met a boy called Frank Mills
On September 12 right here
In front of the Waverley
But unfortunately
I lost his address
He was last seen with his friend, a drummer
He resembles George Harrison, of the Beatles
And he wears his hair
Tied in a small bow at the back
I love him, but it embarrasses me
To walk down the street with him
He lives in Brooklyn somewhere
And he wears his white crash helmet
He has golden chains on his leather jacket
And on the back, are written the names
Mary and Mom and Hells Angels
I would gratefully appreciate it
If you see him tell him
I’m in the park with my girlfriend
And please
Tell him Angela and I
Don’t want the two dollars back
Just him

 


FUCKED UP (B. Deily)

So I fucked up
I'm only human
So I fucked up
I did the best I could do
And then I fucked up
What do you want
I said I was sorry would it help if I said it again?

So I fucked up
I'm only human
So I fucked up
I did the best I could do
And then I fucked up
What do you want
I said I was sorry would it help if I said it again?

Fucked up
Oh shit
I'm real sorry

So I fucked up
I'm only human
So I fucked up
I did the best I could do
And then I fucked up
What do you want
I said I was sorry would it help if I said it again, and again, and again, and again?

 

GALVESTON (J. Webb)

Galveston, oh Galveston, I still hear your sea winds blowin'
I still see her dark eyes glowin'
She was 21 when I left Galveston

Galveston, oh Galveston, I still hear your sea waves crashing
While I watch the cannons flashing
I clean my gun and dream of Galveston

I still see her standing by the water
Standing there lookin' out to sea
And is she waiting there for me?
On the beach where we used to run

Galveston, oh Galveston, I am so afraid of dying
Before I dry the tears she's crying
Before I watch your sea birds flying in the sun
At Galveston, at Galveston

 

GLAD I DON'T KNOW (E. Dando)

I'm glad I don't know what you’ve been thinking lately about yours truly
I bet I don't know how or when I'll fall, or if I'll see a movie
I'm glad I don't know left from wrong, or just how far I'll get

I'm glad I don't know
I'm glad I don't know

You just play your tricks all day, and run back home to bed
I bet when you get there, you just wanna get out, wishing you were dead
Or maybe you're real happy, just thrilled to break your bread
Well installed or so enthralled, or fucking right out of your head

I'm glad I don't know
I'm glad I don't know
I'm glad I don't know

 

 

GONNA GET ALONG WITHOUT YA NOW (M.Kellom)

Mm-hmm, mm-hmm, gonna get along without you now
Mm-hmm, my honey, mm-hmm, my honey
Gonna get along without you now
You told me I was the neatest thing
You even asked me to wear your ring
Then you ran around with every girl in town
You never cared if it got me down
Mm-hmm, mm-hmm, gonna get along without you now
Mm-hmm, my honey, mm-hmm, my honey
Gonna get along without you now

Got along without you before I met you
Gonna get along without you now
Gonna find somebody who's twice as cute
'Cause I didn't like you anyhow
You told everybody that we were friends
But this is where our friendship ends
All of a sudden you changed your tune
You haven't been around since way last June
Mn-hmm, mm-hmm, gonna get along without you now
Got along without you before I met you
Gonna get along without you now
Good bye, my honey
So long, my dear
Gonna get along without you now 

 


GOTTA STOP (E. Dando)

I'm sittin' up in my room
Thinkin' about you
Guess I'm just a wasted boy
With nothing better to do
Try not to pick up the phone
Eleven times a day
When do I hope you're not home
I got nothing to say

I gotta stop
It really hurts
I gotta stop

8 ways to say you're sorry
20 ways to lie
8 days to say tomorrow
Something better change

I gotta stop
It really hurts
I gotta stop

Stop
