LYRICS

24 HOURS

Corner store
always open 24 hours
I feel like drinking

Laundromat
always open 24 hours
I feel like washing up

City park
always open 24 hours
I feel like resting

Airport
always open 24 hours
I feel like taking off

TALK A BIT

I met you in my sleeping days,
you brought me to the Coral Bay

And if we watch the river flow,
we will take a boat and go.

I place my head right on your chest,
never think about the rest

And when we watch the river flow,
it is definitely time to go.

And I feel
your fingers on my skin,
and I feel you

You took me to your little room,
we lay down on the floor,
laughing on old fashion words,
we will watch the walls.

And I feel
your fingers on my skin,
and I feel you

Do you want to talk a bit?
Do you want to talk a bit?
Do you want to talk a bit?
Do you want to talk a bit?

It has been a while

GET CLOSER

Come here get closer

Where have you been?
What have you done?

I thought you were gone
I thought you wanted to stay away
I thought it was you

What is that makes you turn your back?
What is that makes you think about something else?
I wish I wasn’t looking for something that’s not there
I wish I knew what I was searching for

Come here get closer
Talk to me talk to me
Come here get closer

THE SONG OF MATTHEW AND MARK

Matthew let his hair grow
Mark wore a pink t-shirt
they wanted to be rock stars
they played in a white garage.

They had many girls,
who asked them for autographs
but they didn’t care at all,
the played in a white garage.

Matthew wore old tennis shoes
Mark take his jean apart
they wanted to be rock stars
they played in a white garage

They had many girls
who asked them for autographs
but they didn’t care at all
they played in a white garage.

 

ALL THE PLACES

All the places you wanna go
All the people you wanna meet
All the pictures you wanna take

All the records you wanna listen to
All the food that you wanna try
All the new shoes you wanna buy
All the book that you wanna read
All the skies you wanna stare at

What did you wanna talk about?
Nothing seems very important

What did you wanna talk about?
Nothing seems very important

All the places you wanna go
All the people you wanna meet
All the pictures you wanna take
All the records you wanna listen to
What did you wanna talk about?

Nothing seems very important
What did you wanna talk about?
Nothing seems very important

DOWN UNDER

When I saw you there
I was wondering if
Would you come with me?
Would you come?
Would you come with me?
Would you come?

You called me up from down under
and you, you, you, you
You called me up from down under
and I, I, I, I

I was walking alone and I stumbled down
I was bent picking up pieces
Do you know what happened then?
I dressed myself in water
I dressed myself in water

You called me up from down under 
and you, you, you, you
You called me up from down under
and I, I, I, I

I dressed myself in water
I dressed myself in water
I dressed myself in water
I dressed myself in water

LITTLE DOG

I’m won.
A complete idiot.
My head is out of track.
Words mean nothing to me.

I don’t want to be alone in this wild city
I don’t want to be alone in this wild city

This word is not right.
What word is not right?
This word is not right.
What word is not right?

Is there any word that mean something to you?
Is there any word?

Little dog, can I do something for you?
Can I do something for you?

Little dog, can I do something for you?
Can I do something for you?

 

I’m falling here
I’m falling there

I’m going here,
I’m going there

I’m buying here,
I’m buying there

I’m bombing here,
I’m bombing there.

Little dog.

YOUR OWN THING

Picking roses eating cherries from the tree
cutting grass from your garden
Checking vegetables cleaning the shack
Watering watering.

You think about your own thing
Don’t worry about anything else

You think about your own thing
Don’t worry about anything else

Picking roses eating cherries from the tree
cutting grass from your garden

Checking vegetables cleaning the shack
Watering, watering.

You think about your own thing
Don’t worry about anything else

You think about your own thing
Don’t worry about anything else

Please don’t park your car,
in front of my house.

 

LET ME

Grapes are ripe
colors are bright

I feel my senses are starting to fight
Let me, let me…

When we met again
I knew we were not new

I trusted you and you kissed me
Touch by the light
coming from your sight

Touch by the light
coming from your sight
Jumping in bed

I don’t feel sad
When I wake up
my day is filled up

Touch by the light
coming from your sight

Touch by the light
coming from your sight

Touch by the light

Touch by the light
coming from your sight

Touch by the light
coming from your sight

Let me, let me, let me, let me…

 

BURNING

She is just sitting
on her armchair
in her living room
her dress starts burning
she is still sitting
in her living room

One two three four
open your door
one two three four
open your door

She is still waiting
no one is calling
from the cellar door
kids are playing
cars are passing by
no one will stop
at the red light

One two three four
open your door
one two three four
open your door

One two three four
open your door
one two three four
open your door

 

TOO MUCH WORK

Made in U.S.A
You took a plane today
I had to say goodbye
‘till the next time you pass by
I’d like to drink some wine
I’d like to take you for a ride

Made in U.S.A.
You took a plane today
I had to say goodbye
‘till the next time you pass by
I’d like to drink some wine
I’d like to take you for a ride

KILLER BEES

Did you hear the dogs barking outside our door?
Did you meet by chance that naked girl?
Did you see the killer bees?
Did you see the killer bees?

I’m pretty sure I heard you knocking at my door
I’m pretty sure I heard you knocking at my door
I’m pretty sure I heard you knocking at my door
I’m pretty sure I heard you knocking

I just need to stay quiet for a little while
Would you come up to the mountains and sleep outside?
Did you kill the killer bees?
Did you kill the killer bees?

I’m pretty sure I heard you knocking at my door
I’m pretty sure I heard you knocking at my door
I’m pretty sure I heard you knocking at my door
I’m pretty sure I heard you knocking…

HEAL

I want this song to heal you
I want this song to heal you
When I am no longer sad I’ll come back
When I am no longer upside down I’ll be back

I want this song to heal you
I want this song to heal you
When I am no longer upset I’ll come back
When I am no longer upside down I’ll be back

And if you need me I am always up
if you need me I am always up
I want this song to heal you
I want this song to heal you

When I am no longer sad I’ll come back
When I am no longer upside down I’ll be back
And if you need me I am always up,
if you need me I am always up
I suggest you let me go now
I guess we’ll meet again
