Bring on the Rain
If the sun don't shine tomorrow Bring on the rain If the dog falls dead tomorrow He felt no pain Bring on the rain, if it don't shine I beg and borrow To feel so good You understood If it don't shine, I can't feel it If it don't shine, I can't feel it Pay me no mind, I am innocent If it don't shine Let it slip Let it all go You can't control What you can't control
I know you can't stay down In my haunted world Too much longer You hear a different sound Distant on the ear It's a kind of burning hunger That you can't satisfy here I am a prince of shadows Trapped beneath the waves So deep the light can't follow This is no place for you The cold could freeze you through Sunflower, it's time to go And I say rise... Sunflower, I let you go... Rise, like a bubble from my mouth Slowly disappearing out of view There is no magic here Among the long drowned ships I'll save you some time It's too late to save your trip Sunflower, I let you go...
She said, the reason I'm calling I miss the thing we had I said, that's years gone by What was it made you feel Anything blue? I never solved that side of you Seemed like we used it up And left the thing for dead I don't believe in marking graves Wash down your loneliness I've got a bottle It's been working fine Most of the time Let all your worry go Just for a little while Let's pretend it never got old... She said, we should give Everything we own I said, we don't have enough It's a bee sting baby You should not have had much trouble Love's a bee sting baby When you finally break the bubble
I sing about love But I got none in me I talk about vision As if I could see Maybe worst of all I'm stuck out here in this field I had it all Flesh and blood and bone And a beating heart, I remember well Before it turned away to stone When will I come to my senses? I know she's gone How many broken wishes? I know she's gone Two rocks for eyes and a carrot nose I'm just a snowman, I suppose... And now the geese are overhead Summer's gone If she cared for me She wouldn't let me melt in summer If she loved me She wouldn't have let me Let her go so easy
Giving Up the Kingdom
Giving up the kingdom Giving up the kingdom When you look at monkeys, you are Giving up the kingdom Throwing down the gauntlet Putting down the chalice If you dig up bones, you could be Throwing down the grail Don't it make you sad and don't it make you miss What you thought you had When Judas gave the lonely kiss It don't change a thing You never change a thing You can't crucify it, but you can feel the footprints They don't wash away, like so many sins It don't change a thing You never change a thing And at the end of the day When they put the bones together Don't let them stick a sword in me Or gamble for my clothes It don't change a thing You never change a thing
I would wrap you in a leopard skin I'd keep you safe and keep you sound If I thought that it wouldn't Bring you down But you wanted so much of me You wanted me to stay And you never saw my misery And you never saw my pain I don't want to bring Stolen funeral flowers And a Crackerjack ring Cause my grubby little things Just won't do, for you Have you ever wanted someone So badly That you couldn't stand to look in the mirror You could say that's the way I love you I don't want to bring Stolen funeral flowers And a Crackerjack ring Cause my grubby little things Just won't do And I don't want to bring My kind of love Naked and cold Down on you You know I can't go with you I'd only get caught in the light...
Girl what have you done Set fire to the throne Calling out the empire through a Plastic megaphone Was a time when I stood by And watched you from afar Now I have begun colliding Summer's gone but I knew that it would Be alright How much can she grab of it And how much can she keep Before her pocket's heavy And she's in way too deep Summer's gone but I knew that it would Be alright
As I begin to put down The saddest words I am reminded of a time When love still lay before us Yet untrampled I was the best thing that you could find And I know I was wrong to think I'd be the only one I took a shot in the dark On Columbus Day I stopped my running And faced the music sad and true It was on a Puget Bay that I Couldn't stop it coming I came to grips with losing you And I know that you've heard it all before It didn't change a thing But when I wash up on the shore Somebody's got to know This was the last act Of a desperate man It took him his whole life Just to understand that there are Precious few get dealt a Winning hand, this was definitely The act of a desperate man...
