Track Name: Aphrodite
I beheld you, moving statue
In the garden, of my heart
Soft and mighty, Aphrodite
Goddess of Love, come to smite me

All your colors, and complexion
Composition, of perfection
You came wading, from the painting
Never frightened, never fainting
Track Name: Party
Eat cake
Drink wine, and merry make
Light candle, life we celebrate
Oh, with my family and my friends near
It's the best party of the year

Dance Dina
With wild eyes, and golden shoe
Laugh Lina, take time, two by two
Oh, with my family and my friends near,
It's the best party of the year
Track Name: Powers
Yes I knew you were friendly but I didn't know you had powers
I didn't know you could make a pile of shit into beautiful flowers
Yes I knew you were friendly but I didn't know you had powers
I didn't know you could make something sweet out of somethin' so sour

Now we're stuck on this raft. Won't you teach me your craft, oooooh

Yes I knew you were friendly but I didn't know you had powers
I didn't know you could make awkward moments into pleasurable hours
Yes I knew you were friendly but I didn't know you had powers
How do you turn a salty tear into a river of laughter

Now we're stuck on this raft. Won't you teach me your craft, oooooh

Yes I knew you were friendly but I didn't know you had powers
How do you turn a dusty cloud into sweet April showers
Yes I knew you were friendly but I didn't know you had powers
How do you pick up all the pieces and build your towering towers
Track Name: Old Man and a Pigeon in Love
Old man and a pigeon in love,
Sitting quiet on the stoop, with the bread crumbs and a book
Old man and a pigeon in love,
When the service will let out, all the church ladies will shout at the
Old man and a pigeon in love,
Will the children point and laugh, say the pigeon needs a bath with the
Old man and a pigeon in love?
Old man and a pigeon in love.
Track Name: Moon Above
Moon up above
I've lost myself again
Moon up above
I can't remember when
Moon up above
I need you to pretend, tend, tend
Tonight show me love, moon above

Moon above
Shine your gentle beam
Moon above
All the things you see
Moon up above
I'm lonely in a dream, dream, dream
tonight show me love, moon above

La la la la la Luna,
Are you there, and do ya
Hear my prayer, Luna
La la la la la Luna,
Light my way, to ya
La Luna

Moon above
Hold me in your glow
Moon above
Cast your magic slow
Moon up above,
With you I'm not alone, lone, lone
Tonight, show me love, moon above

La la la la la Luna,
Are you there, and do ya
Hear my prayer, Luna
La la la la la Luna, light my way, to ya
La Luna
Track Name: Pullin' Yer Leg
Danny I was lyin' 'bout the boathouse
No sleeping tiger, just a field mouse.
Danny I was kiddin' 'bout the basement
No moaning ghost in the red tent.
Danny I was jokin' bout the old shed
No hungry zombie, just a snow sled.
I'm pullin' yer leg.
Track Name: Lady of the Andes
You ran away and you married him,
When you were young young young.
He couldn't run so you carried him,
Up to the sun sun sun.

Oh Lady of the Andes
Oh Lady of the Andes

Crystal cave in the mountain
A school of love love love
Kisses sweet by the fire
and moon above bove bove

Oh Lady of the Andes
Oh Lady of the Andes

The winter brought them a child,
Into the storm storm storm.
Wrapped her in red wool and cradled her,
and kept her warm warm warm.

Oh Lady of the Andes
Oh Baby of the Andes
Track Name: Racecar Driver
He's a racecar driver
Pretty good liar
Don't have time for dinner
He's a racecar driver
Racecar Driver

He's a racare driver, can't slow him down
He's the fastest man in town
He's a racecar driver
Racecar driver
Track Name: Go, and See!
Would you want to, if you could now
Leave the old place, would you know how
Go, and see

There a toucan, and a mountain
There a palm tree, and a beer can
Go, and see

Oooooh

There a whole world, or your laundry
There a kingdom, or the tv
Go, and see

While your waiting, contemplating
While your working, while your dating
Go, and see

Would you want to, if you could now
Leave the castle, in your hometown
Go, and see

Is it so real, or a vision
on your deathbed, in a prison
Go, and see

It goes on and on and on and on
Go, and see!
It goes on and on and on and on
Go, and see!
Track Name: Gotham Girl
A pair of velvet bows
Adorn her sleeping toes
She plucks the pedals of
a lost love, a blackened rose
Gotham girl

A sullen serenade
Of dark and twisted braids
No nanny nor a moon lit milk maid
Could look her way
Gotham girl

It's an evil, it's an awfully cold cold world
In the sequel, love will come for gotham girl

She lay beside the grave
A pearl in the grey
A basket for the dead, and haunted
Of warm corn bread
Gotham girl

It's an evil, it's an awfully cold cold world
In the sequel, love will find our gotham girl
Track Name: Cherries in the Snow
Cherries on a mountain
Cherries in the road
Cherries on mah t-shirt
Cherries growing old
Cherries in a coffin
Cherries in the snow

Cherries in a wheat field
Cherries in the gold
Cherries in a fish tank
Cherries in a bowl
Cherries in a cupcake
Cherries in the snow
Track Name: Old Friend
You come knocking on my door, old friend
In the middle of a storm, old friend
I was the one who adored you
I was the one who would bore you

In the middle of the night, old friend
In a good old fashioned fight, old friend
I was the one who adored you
I was the one who would bore

Here's to you, while I'll make a toast to
All of the years we grew
All your fields of gold, old friend
Every story told, old friend
Stars hanging on the dark blue over you

We were walking in the light, old friend
With a candle and a kite, old friend
You were the one who would show me
All of the fruit on the low tree

In the middle of a cold coffin
I think about the song you sang often
You were a raft on the dark sea
Floating so gracefully

Here's to you, While I'll make a toast to
All of the years we grew
All your fields of gold, old friend
Every story told, old friend
Stars hanging on the dark blue over you
Track Name: Still Life
A bowl of buttered bread, and Bonnie
Staring out, in the nude
Settle dust, in the light
Very still, all so quiet

The painter by the fire is tired
Lays the brush on the seat
Come my love, let us eat
Come my love, let us eat
Track Name: Babe, I Ain't Got Nothin' Left to Say
Time will bring the end of day
Wolf is howling in the grey
Close the door and walk my way
Babe, I ain't got nothin' left to say

Words of love I've sent your way
Pages in the sun will fade
Wind has blown the words away
And babe, I ain't got nothin' left to say

Lay your head upon my chest
Let's not speak, we need to rest
Oh my love, I'm here to stay
But babe, I ain't got nothin' left to say
