New song lyrics

Postby gillian » Thu May 12, 2005 1:06 am

Matt and I transcribed the lyrics for the new songs tonight. Of course, these are still works in progress... we will update as more recordings become available and we notice any errors.

Enjoy!

Up or Down

You might get lucky some days, not a drop of rain
And you're too long on the town and you leave your trouble on the train
And then there's only doubt until you're on your feet again
There's only up or down

The lucky boys upstairs with their penthouse views
Making the ladies, making the news
And I'm taking the orders and pouring the booze
There's only up or down

And they say no one likes a big mouth, yeah, but I've got one anyway
Big as any fat cat, I say what I wanna say
And I don't care if you listen, and I don't care if you walk away
There's only up or down

Shooting little stars
Dying to be near
Burn up along the way
Into the atmosphere
Shooting little stars
Dying to be near

I told the young bond salesman just the other day
When I was his age I was sailing away
I sailed the Russian sea, I've seen the Phillipines
Down to Panama and all the way around

Sometimes there's trouble on the ocean, sometimes there's trouble on the shore
And there's always someone hoping there won't be trouble anymore
It's an elevator, baby, get off on any floor
There's only up or down
Only up or down

Getting Ready

Oh, baby, I'm getting ready
I'm getting ready to let you go
My hands shake, my heart's unsteady
Oh, how I want to love you so
I don't wanna let this go
Wish I had a magic wand
I would put a spell on you
You would see it as I do
Oh, I'm getting ready to let you go
Oh, I'm getting ready to let you go

Oh, baby, you are my drug
And I was just your cigarette
I was nothing you could be proud of
I have lost my self respect
My self respect, my self respect
I have lost my self respect
Oh, I'm getting ready to let you go
Oh, I'm getting ready to let you go
I'm getting ready to let you go

Baby, baby, we got no traction
I'm waiting and waiting for your reaction
So I'll try a new direction
I'm gonna give myself a resurrection
I'm getting ready, getting ready
I'm getting ready to let you go
Oh, I'm getting ready to let you go
Oh, I'm getting ready to let you go
I'm getting ready to let you go
I'm getting ready to let you go

Crying Over

Light it up, baby, light up that fire
I don't know what's gonna save me from the cold now
And these sorrows I'm crying over
And these sorrows I'm crying over

Embrace me, embrace me with your kind love
It's all I've ever wanted, all I ever dreamed of
And all of this dreaming of silver and gold
Is something to break this winter so cold

And these sorrows I'm crying over
And these sorrows I'm crying over
We're going straight for the thunder, straight for the rain
Love leaves a mark and love leaves a strain
Back in the saddle again and again
Millions of eyes and none of them friends

You better light it up, baby, light up that fire
Cause I don't know what's gonna save me from the cold now
From these sorrows I'm crying over
From these sorrows I'm crying over
From these sorrows I'm crying over
I'm crying over

No Bad News

Don't bring me bad news, no bad news
I don't need none of your bad news today
You're a sad little boy, anyone can see you're just a sad little boy
That's why you're carrying on that way
Why don't you burn it all down, burn your own house down, burn your own house down
Try to kill your own disease
And leave the rest of us, there's a lot of us, leave the rest of us
Who wanna live in peace to live in peace

I'm gonna find me a man, love him so well, love him so strong, love him so slow
We're gonna go way beyond the walls of this fortress
And we won't be afraid, we won't be afraid, though the darkness may come our way
We won't be afraid to be alive anymore
And we'll grow kindness in our hearts for all the strangers among us
Until there are no strangers anymore

Don't bring me bad news, no bad news
I don't need none of your bad news today
Can't have my fear, I've got nothing to lose, can't have my fear
I'm not getting out of here alive anyway
And I don't need none of these things, I don't need none of these things
I've been handed
And the bird of peace is flying over, she's flying over
Coming in for a landing

Free

I am no longer young, I'm an old man's daughter
We got caught with the sun going down
We spent most of our days adrift on the water
That's how I know my way around
And it's hard to be free
When freedom is just me
And the waves on the terrible sea

I could land with the rest of all the broken down birds
That's where I found my way home
With the rest of the faces on the face of the earth
Facing off with the great unknown
And all the tears that we cry
Is something gone wrong
Is somebody lost
The places long gone

Keep on moving, baby, keep on moving
The wave's coming over your knees
And it's hard to be free
See some things that I see
Be some things that I be
And come all the way, all the way, all the way home again

Peaceful Valley

I went up to the mountain
Because you asked me to
Up over the clouds
To where the sky was blue
I could see all around me
Everywhere
I could see all around me
Everywhere

Sometimes I feel like
I've never been nothing but tired
And I'll be walking
Till the day I expire
Sometimes I lay down
No more can I do
But then I go on again
Because you ask me to

Some days I look down
Afraid I will fall
And though the sun shines
I see nothing at all
Then I hear your sweet voice
Coming in, oh
Telling me softly, softly
You love me so

The peaceful valley
Just over the mountain
The peaceful valley
Few come to know
I may never get there
Ever in this lifetime
But sooner or later
It's there I will go
Sooner or later
It's there I will be going

Who wanna live in peace to live in peace


I think it's:

And leave the rest of us, and there's a lot of us, leave the rest of us
Who wanna live in peace to live in peace


And with all the kindness in our hearts for all the strangers among us
????? strangers anymore


And with all the kindness in our hearts for all the strangers among us
Until there are no strangers anymore


Can you tell I've been listening to this on continuous loop? LOL

Do you want me to fly
The sky said, No
Ain't your turn to go

I think this line says.....

And we'll grow kindness in our hearts for all the strangers among us
Until there are no strangers anymore

And is it just me, or is this song taking a shot at our illustrious leader, Dubya?

It's the song I put on repeat as soon as I heard the first verse. Thanks for putting up the words.
