Lyrics

 

rain on the roof
the sky is dark
show me a sign
some kind of spark
show me you want me
give me the proof
gotta hear more than rain on the roof
starts so hopeful
starts so strong
how could our love
go so wrong
I start to walk
you start to run
different places
said and done
show me you want me
give me the proof
heart so cold like rain on the roof
want to cross
the finish line
how can we win
when you’re not trying
you’re gonna have
to help me crawl
you’re gonna have
to make the call
show me something
tell me the truth
heart just beats like rain on the roof

rain on the roof

the sky is dark

show me a sign

some kind of spark

show me you want me

give me the proof

gotta hear more than rain on the roof

starts so hopeful

starts so strong

how could our love

go so wrong

I start to walk

you start to run

different places

said and done

show me you want me

give me the proof

heart so cold like rain on the roof

want to cross

the finish line

how can we win

when you’re not trying

you’re gonna have

to help me crawl

you’re gonna have

to make the call

show me something

tell me the truth

heart just beats like rain on the roof

Lyrics

he left the back bay looking tired

in a yellow cab and a yellow shirt

he held on to his guitar case

like he held on to his hurt

June sweat in the evening

curling up his hair

rolling down the window

he could feel her in the air

and he asked, he asked

is it the northern lights, is it the southern breeze

is it the western moon, or the eastern freeze

is it you I hear - who can say

many miles from here, many miles away

on the corner of the bed

with the bottle in room eight

holding on to a guitar case

well she’s probably running late

now there’s no promised land for Joshua

no one’s gonna be set free

vodka and valium, the new Plan B

And he asked, he asked

is it the northern lights, is it the southern breeze

is it the western moon, or the eastern freeze

is it you I hear - who can say

many miles from here, many miles away

she stopped and looked up at the sky

she knew that she had sinned

she left one without an answer

the other twisting in the wind

holding on to her guitar case walking back into the plane

she said “I’m just not gonna answer and I’m not gonna explain”

and she asked out loud to no one

is it the northern lights, is it the southern breeze

is it the western moon, or the eastern freeze

is it you I hear - who can say

many miles from here, many miles away

Lyrics

you can fill the room with flowers

pull the shades to see the sun

and live on soul and rock and roll

and caffeine by the ton

you can leave the doors and windows open wide

but it’s hard to samba when it’s snowing outside

it’s hard to samba when it’s snowing outside

now Aracaju is calling

like the waves that kiss the shore

while you write your name on windowpanes

with the wind chill down to four

so close your eyes, pretend to hear the tide

but it’s hard to samba when it’s snowing outside

it’s hard to samba when it’s snowing outside

Lyrics


guardian angel, wrap your arms around me

give my dreams flesh and bone, what is real

turn them into chrome and steel, phone booths and ferris wheels

step insideshow me what you meant

‘cause I’m here

being Clark Kent 

made some really big plans without a plan

seems there was another road I ended on

lost my way before I knew, now I’m counting on you

turn your angel wings into a tent

cover me

being Clark Kent  

thought I’d be Superman

back to where it all began

if only I could change the way it goes

wrap your gentle wings around me

finally you found me

make it all as simple

as the way I change my clothes

Superman’s gone

wonder where he goes

 

 

Guardian angel, wrap your arms around me
Give my dreams flesh and bone, what is real
Turn them into chrome and steel, phone booths and ferris wheels
Step inside
show me what you meant
‘Cause I’m here
Being Clark Kent
 
Made some really big plans without a plan
Seems there was another road I ended on
Lost my way before I knew, now I’m counting on you
Turn your angel wings into a tent
Cover me
Being Clark Kent 
 
Thought I’d be Superman
back to where it all began
If only I could change the way it goes
Wrap your gentle wings around me
Finally you found me
Make it all as simple
As the way I change my clothes
Superman’s gone
wonder where he goes

Lyrics

dear girlfriend, I don’t know you

and I like you even less

you got your Columbian butler

to clean up your little mess

gonna wipe that pretty smile away

and rip your prom queen dress

been around too long for this life

too short for the next

Christmas, overrated

they sucked out all the soul

apologies to Jesus, Santa Claus, and Nat King Cole

got the news by accident

I read your little text

been around too long for this life

too short for the next

some like it hot

some like it not

better check your SPF

greasy little men

hanging in the hall

hunt me and they haunt me

set me up to watch me fall

waiting in the shadows

the usual suspects

been around too long for this life

too short for the next
