Aphrodite 01:31
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
2.
Party 02:17
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

Powers 02:32 video
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

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.

Moon Above 02:55
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

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.

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

Go, and See! 03:32
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!

Gotham Girl 02:20
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

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

Old Friend 02:52
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 our dreams came true All your fields of gold, old friend Every story told, old friend Stars hanging on the dark blue over you

Still Life 01:42
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
15.
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
