Sweet Romance 


Crawl 

1 don't remember rf I saw you siltin' 'neath 
the weather with a smile, dancing with the shadow 
of another all the while But in the evening when you 
tumble through the wall. I want to see you when 
you crawl. 

There you stand with heel in hand upon the sand of all 
your sacred ground, if you shout the crowd will come 
and then they will attempt to show you round But 
if the season lets you dance after the fall, 1 want 
to see you when you crawl. 


In nights of soul dividing deep inside a cage 
I know if it's gonna come around it's coming straight to me 
Why don't you laugh aloud, you laugh yourself to steep 

In nights of emptiness t cry 

Waiting for the universe to die 

All my dreams don't bother me no more 

My sweet romance I hold your hands with midnight honesty 


Bartholomew 

We walked along the green and watched the sky 
The day was fine with pink sunshine 
We knocked the blades down with our rug 
And watched you run 

You widened both your eyes and ran away 
You ctimbed a tree, said, "look at me," 

And swinging down they made a frown 
And cried.''stampede!" 

And when they told you what you did was all in vain 
then you laughed aloud and all the soldiers came 
They set up tents and marched in lines and chanted rhymes 
Singing, "who are you, are you Bartholomew?" 

They sacked our snacks upon their backs 
And leaving tracks they left us laughing in the sun 
The day was done 

We called you home, he tagged along 
Tugging the rug behind his tail 
lust like a sail 

It blew us West back to our nest 
We took a rest and thought it best 
for everyone, everyone 


Big Straw Hat 

Hey honey won't you look around 

you got a big black cat 

and a big straw hat in the sky 

leaves are falling and they 're turning round 

she said it's gonna rain when there s signs 

like that goin’ down 

won't you open your mouth to me 

i got two small arms but a heart as tall as a tree 

keeps on growin' and i'm gettin' high 

with love like that 

there's a big straw hat in the sky 

She doesn't read books or magaztr es 

looks at the pictures 

oh tell me what she's dreamtn' 

i hope that someday soon 

she’d turn around 

she doesn't take things seriously 


Wave 

t tove it when you make me feet this way 

I'm not involved and you want to make me pay the price 

You're so right babe—you know what’s going on 

My world is so small when it's stanc ing next to yours 

The pretty little things you wear 

The way you talk the way you care 

Welt, I'm fust blown away 

You're some kind oi superflag 

Waving in your glory 

Keep on telling me what I'm doing wrong 

And other people too, they need your help 

YOu're so right babe—you know what's going on 

I've seen the sunset behind your eyes 

You have seen the day, tell me what it’s alt about 

i'm (ust blown away 

You're some kind oi superflag 

Waving in your glory 


Lavenderman 

Stormy ways and gentle sighs 
Carves a smile in my eyes 
Breathe your life into my mind 
Lavenderman 

Side by side you tench my skin 
I reach out and from within 
Hearts abound and crash around 
Lavenderman 

The sky Is covered with a sea of grey now 
The air is close and 1 hear It say hov, 

Our dreams are shooting up through the celling 
They hit the roof when 1 started screaming 

Of course you stayed right by my side 
Never flinching always kind 
You don't deserve this sort of ride 
Lavenderman 

Hold me please until i sleep 
Rock me slow into the deep 
Where 1 may hide until l die 
Lavenderman 


Moonwhite Day 

When you feel the whispering of the wind 
When you feel tike something stirs within 
Being there is such a simple joy 
Like a child you play with your new toy 

And the love that you feel in a lovely way 
Is the love of a song from a moonwhite day 

Children dance and children disappear 
Children sing and wait for those to hear 
You can speak your mind or speak to me 
You can dance on earth or dance on sea 

And if today it seems like summer's gone away 
The morning air of winter has nothing left to say 
i'm waiting for the day the season comes again 
Waiting for tomorrow 


After AH 

i know if it ever gets to a war 

The seeds of tight will slowly shine upon the wall 

Shine upon the wall so dearly 

And if the tain will ever give In 

It will begin to turn into a joyous fair 

Flowers through the air so softly 

After all that's said and done you cry for me 
Can't you see, the winds are catling me 

Always when 1 think of falling again 

The purple rose of solace comforts me within 

Comforts me within so darkly 

Paper floats above me and then with holy water washing alt 

my thoughts away 

All my hopes will stay tomorrow 

And in the quiet river waiting for the sunshine 
Cm looking forward to the fall 
And with a shallow terror resting in my heartbeat 
I'm sleeping backwards after all 


Pushin' the Button 

You pushed the button and called me on the phone 
1 pushed your button when (didn’t want to be alone 
When 1 read your letter it made me feel so nice 
want to say nothing could ever be so right 

You can say what you want and make everything just fine 
But listen my sweet babe it's happening at the wrong time 
Keep pushin' the button keys knockin' on my head 
Makes me think my feelings are better left unsaid 

Keep pushin' the button in every different mode 
Depress It and release it make everything explode 
Come on my sweet baby just give me one more poke 
And then we’H rise together in one big cloud of smoke
