Tear Off Your Own Head
(It's A Doll Revolution)

(Elvis Costello)

One must tear off one's own head.
Hey!
Who dries your eyes when you cry real tears
Who knows or cares what an imitation is
Only you do
You can paint his nails, make him wear high heels
Why waste time altering the hemline
Or do you.

Tear off your own head
Tear off your own head
It's a doll revolution.

You can bat your lashes, you can cut your strings
Pull out his hair with your moveable fingers
It looks so real
But one won’t do it so collect the set
Dress him in pink ribbons, put him in a kitchenette
How does this feel.

Tear off your own head
Tear off your own head
It's a doll revolution.

What’s that sound it’ll turn you around
It's a doll revolution
They’re takin' over and they’re tearin' it down
It's a doll revolution.
(Revolution)

You can pull and pinch him 'til he cries and squeals
You can twist his body 'til it faces backwards
Plastic features
You could make somebody a pretty little wife
But don’t let anybody tell you how to live your life
Broken pieces.

Tear off your own head
Tear off your own head
It's a doll revolution.
Tear off your own head
Tear off your own head
It's a doll revolution.

What’s that sound, it’ll turn you around
It's a doll revolution
They’re takin' over and they’re tearin' it down
It's a doll revolution.
It's a doll revolution.

Revolution
(revolution)
Tear off your own head
Tear off yout own head
(revolution)
Tear off your own head

Tear off your own head
Tear off your own head
(revolution).

 

Stealing Rosemary

(D. Peterson, S. Hoffs, V. Peterson)

If you need me I'll be here
On my knees, on my knees
In the neighbor's garden
Where the light is growin' long.

Stealin' Rosemary for you, my love.

It's the tiny lies I tell
For you to please, you to please
Early in the mornin'
When the light is growin' strong.

Stealin' Rosemary for you, my love
I'm stealin' Rosemary.

Flowers crushin' on my skin (on my skin)
Tuscan blue all for you (all for you)
Caught in rain and runnin'
Home to you I'm comin', home.

Stealin' Rosemary for you, my love
I'm stealin' Rosemary for you, my love
Stealin' Rosemary.

 

Something That You Said

(S. Hoffs, V. Peterson, C. Caffey)


Everything in a moment starting where
Something you said is hanging in the air
Now I know my life is sweetening
Changing everything.

Something that you said
Turned me from the inside out
Running through my head
Something I have dreamed about
And I feel so real (feel so right)
And I feel so right
(Something you said).

Showing you every weakness and feeling strong for it
I used to run from real love now I long for it
Now I know what I've been missing
Since I've been listening.

Something that you said
Turned me from the inside out
Lyin' in my bed
Whispering your name out loud
And I feel so real (feels so right)
And it feels so right
Something that you said
Got through to me tonight.

Never so far you can't call me back
I'm never more than a single kiss away.

And I feel so real
And it feels so right
(Something you said).

Something that you said
Turned me from the inside out
Running through my head
Something I have dreamed about
And I feel so real (feel so right)
And I feel so right
(Something you said).

Something that you said
Turned me from the inside out
Lyin' in my bed
Whispering your name out loud
(Something you said)
And I feel
And I feel so (right)
And I feel so right
(Something you said).

Something that you said
Turned me from the inside out
Running through my head
Something I have dreamed about.

 

Ask Me No Questions

( D. Peterson, W. Ingleheart)


If I told you I don't mind
Would you believe me
When I say to you you're not my kind
Do I decieve you with this fragile disguise
Ask me no questions
And I will tell you no lies.

If you could read my heart
I would not deny
But I'll pretend all these tears on my face don't imply
That I'm not happy just to see you with her
One small voice
That will never be heard.

I'm in love with you
Oh, I'm in love with you
But I turn away when you look in my eyes
Ask me no questions, I'll tell you no lies
I'm in love with you.

I'm in love with you
Oh, I'm in love with you
Trying to smile with a hole in my heart
No one knows
I'm falling apart.

I'm in love with you
Oh, I'm in love with you
But I turn away when you look in my eyes
Ask me no questions, I'll tell you no lies
I'm in love with you.

 

The Rain Song

(S. Cowsill, V. Peterson)


I don't think about us much anymore
Frankly the topic has become a bore
And you don't come up much in my conversations
And I don't think about you on vacation.


But when it rains
When it rains
When it rains
That's when I remember
That's when I remember
When I remember you
I remember you.


I don't think about us when I'm sleeping
It doesn't even cross my dreamlike mind
And I don't think I see your face through the curtains
Hell, I don't even miss you half the time.


Oh, but when it rains
When it rains
When it rains
That's when I remember
That's when I remember
When I remember you
I remember you.
Rain, rain, go away
I'm doin' fine as long as you stay
Locked up inside your cloud of grey
Rain, rain (rain, rain)
Rain, rain, rain (rain)
Rain, rain, rain (rain, rain)
Rain.
When it rains
When it rains
When it rains
That's when I remember
That's when I remember
Oh, I remember you
I remember you.
Oh, that's when I remember (now I remember)
The only time I remember (now I remember)
When I remember you (now I remember)

Canción de la lluvia
 
Yo ya no pienso mucho en nosotros
Francamente el tema se a puesto aburrido
Y tú no pones mucha atención a mi conversación
Y no pienso en ti en las vacaciones.
 
Pero cuando llueve
Es cuando te recuerdo
Te recuerdo.
 
No pienso en ti cuando me duermo
Ni siquiera cruzas me mente de ensueño
Ni siquiera veo tu rostro a través de las cortinas
Ni siquiera te extraño la mitad del tiempo.
 
 
La lluvia, lluvia, se va
Estoy bien cuán lejos estés
Encierro tu opaca nube
Llueve.


Nickel Romeo

(M. Steele, B. Ray, S. LeGassick)


Hey sugar, I had that dream again
I saw you in your red crushed velvet suit
Longin' on my feather bed
A Cheshire Cat in yellow Beatle boots
Who's that stranger lying in your arms
Her fingers running down your tattooed chest
Valentino's crankin' up the charm
And it's comin' like a freight train
These pictures in my head

Hey Mister (Mister) Nickel Romeo (Nickel Romeo)
Everybody knows your name
Hey, hey Mister (Mister) tell me Mister
What's the game.

Falling, yes, she will fall
Your latest victim bites her lip and sighs
She'll do the nasty job for you
Incriminating kisses on the sly
All I remember how you get your kicks
Preying on the innocent at night
Strange desperation, ya gotta cop that fix
Makin' every little girl is keepin' you alive

Hey Mister (Mister) Nickel Romeo (Nickel Romeo)
Everybody knows your name
Hey, hey Mister (Mister) tell me Mister
What's the game.

Oh, Nickel Romeo, you got no shame.

Hey Mister (Mister) Nickel Romeo (Nickel Romeo)
Everybody knows your name
Hey, hey Mister (Mister) tell me Mister
What's the game.

Hey mister (Mister) Nickel Romeo (Nickel Romeo)
Everybody knows your name
Hey, hey Mister (yeah!) you're the master
Of this game.

Because you got no shame
I think I'm goin' insane
And you're to blame.

 

Ride The Ride

( S. Hoffs, D. Peterson, V. Peterson, D. Schwartz)


Take all of the money

Take all of the sweet plum of the pie
Don't say that you love me
Don't say it's for me, it's a lie, it's a lie.

Now you got yourself so wrapped up in it
All you gotta do is wait a minute
All you gotta do is ride the ride.

Ride the ride
Ride the ride.

Blow me a smoke screen
Never lookin' at me in the eye
You make it look easy (you make it look easy)
For someone afraid of falling to fly.

Now you got yourself so wrapped up in it
All you gotta do is wait a minute
All you gotta do is ride the ride.

Ride the ride
Ride the ride.

Take all of the money
Take all you believe is the prize
Just leave me a moment (leave me a moment)
Just leave me a bright piece of the sky, a bright piece of the sky.

Now you got yourself so wrapped up in it
All you gotta do is wait a minute
All you gotta do is ride the ride.

Ride the ride
(Now you got yourself so wrapped up in it
All you gotta do is wait a minute)
Ride the ride
(Now you got yourself so wrapped up in it
All you gotta do is wait a minute)
Ride the ride
Ride the ride.

Ride the ride
Ride the ride.

We're gonna ride the ride the (we're gonna) ride the ride
(We're gonna ride the ride)
(We're gonna) Ride the (gonna) ride
(Gonna ride the ride)
Ride the ride
(We're gonna ride the ride).


 

I Will Take Care Of You

(S. Hoffs, D. O'Brian)


When the daylight disappears
When you're haunted, I'll be near
When the shadows come to call
And when you're too scared to stand tall
I can stand tall.

Dream and let your dreams come
It's your turn to fly
As long as I'm standing by
You can close your eyes.

I will take care of you
Long as you want me to
Whatever else I do
I will take care of you.

Don't you worry, while you sleep
All my love is yours to keep
All you wish for, all you know
Will be yours when you let go
You can let go.

Smile if you can now
Smile through your tears
Here where your fears are known
Know you're safe at home.

I will take care of you
Long as you want me to
Whatever else I do
I will take care of you.

Hoo-hoo!

All you have to do is say goodnight
Close your eyes
And fly (fly) into the night.

I will take care of you
Long as you want me to
Whatever else I do
I will take care of you, yeah.


 

Here Right Now

(D. Peterson, P. Rafelson)


Head in the clouds
You never touch the ground
You're in such a hurry
You might lose what you've found.

In and outta town
Time for you to settle down
Stand back, take a look around you
You're runnin' from the pressures of the restless world
Hush for a moment, baby just be still.

Here, now
Spend a minute next to me
Slow down
Take the time to let it be
I wanna show you there's no place better than
Here right now.

Maybe where iceburgs
Melt in the sun
Let all the ties that bound you
Come undone.

Open up, you're alive
I miss the fire in your eyes
Give a sign, tell me that you want me
When you're overwhelming life becomes too much
Take another breath and you will see.

Here, now
Spend a minute next to me
Slow down
Take the time to let it be
I wanna show you there's no place better than
Here right now.

Here right now
Here right now.

Remember how we'd laugh and carry on (carry one)
Long before the madness had begun
Yeah yeah - yeah!

Here, now
Spend a minute next to me
Slow down
Take the time to let it be
I wanna show you there's no place better than
Here right now.

Here, now
Spend a minute next to me
Slow down
Take the time to let it be
I wanna show you there's no place better than
Here right now.


 

Single By Choice

(V. Peterson)


Single by choice
Never married, never ever divorced
Listen to the solitary voice
Tell you I'm single by choice.

Single by choice
Never married, never ever divorced
Listen to the solitary voice
Tell you I'm single by choice.

I know what you're thinkin'
She can't be complete
'Til the right kind of man
Comes sweep her off her feet
Well I've been there before
Times four, times five
With the right kind of man
Barely made it out alive.

I'm single by choice
Never married, never ever divorced
Listen to the solitary voice
Tell you I'm single by choice.

Alone but not lonely
I've made up my mind
And chosen a life
It's the solitary kind
I got sun in my mornin' (sun in my mornin')
Got love in my day
And I don't waste one moment
Wishin' it away.

Single by choice
Single by choice
Single by choice
Single by choice.

Single by choice
Never married, never, never divorced
Listen to the solitary voice
Tell you I'm single by choice.

Single by choice (by choice)
Single by choice (by choice)
Single by choice (by choice)


 

Lost At Sea

(D. Peterson, S. Hoffs)


Can we try to salvage what we can
From the weight of water and sand
Lift us up again
Well, this world spinnin' out of control
I'm racing just to keep hold
As the clouds move in
With the driving winds so strong.

Could it be that we're lost at sea
And we're drowning under the stars
Up to me, I would ride this wave
Before we drift too far
What a lonely way to be
Lost at sea.

Like a star in a night filled with tears
Make the sadness disappear
'Cause you're all that I hold dear
Well, you walk never ever looking back
One defends and one attacks
There's a thousand reasons to begin again.

Could it be that we're lost at sea
And we're drowning under the stars
Up to me, I would ride this wave
Before we drift too far
Take my hand and come to me
Save a life
Rescue you
Rescue me.

Could it be that we're lost at sea
And we're drowning under the stars
Up to me, I would ride this wave
Before we drift too far.

Could it be that we're lost at sea
And we're drowning under the stars
Up to me, I would ride this wave
Before we drift too far.

Na na na na na na


 

Song For A Good Son

(M. Steele)


A summer's day so long ago
A thousand boats dancin' on the bay
I came to you in silent dream
We both held hands and fell into the water.

You never claimed to know me well
The dark-eyed son, the privileged man
You found me bitter, you thought me cold
Well, now I'm gonna make you understand.

My mother died, my father cried
He left me lonely by the waterside
Waterside so deep and wide
If I follow maybe I will find her.

Beyond the salt and spray
The current carried her away.

Beyond the salt and spray
The current carried her away (away).

I can't outrun my destiny
Tell me who will sing a song for me
Darkness, darkness cover me
By my own hand is the way it has to be.

My mother died, my father cried
You will find me by the waterside
Waterside so deep and wide
If I follow, maybe I will find her
(The waterside)
If I follow, maybe I will find her
(So deep and wide)
Maybe I will find her
(The waterside, so deep and wide)


 

Mixed Messages

(V. Peterson)

You're sending me mixed messages
Mixed messages that I can barely work through
Where the heart lies, which messages
Comin' truly from you.

When I get too close to you
I feel the fear, can almost hear it
Then you call me late at night
Sayin', "Can I be with you?
I wanna be with you".

You're sending me mixed messages
Mixed messages that I can barely work through
Where the heart lies, which messages
Comin' truly from you.

You keep your thoughts to yourself
To keep me guessin' while we're undressin'
Then you're gone for days on end
Hey here we go again
Here we go again.

You're sending me mixed messages
Mixed messages that I can barely work through
Where the heart lies, which messages
Comin' truly from you.

I can't keep bouncing around like this
Cut me loose then pull me in for a kiss
If you know what you want I wish you'd tell me
Clearly.

Wonder why it bothers me
I wonder why, I even wonder why
If I had another lover
Would it get to you
Would I get through?

This puzzle of mixed messages
Mixed messages that I can barely work through
Where the heart lies, which messages
Comin' truly from...

You're sending me mixed messages
Mixed (I) messages (can't) that I (get) can barely (through) work through
Where the heart lies, which messages
Comin' truly from you.



 

Between The Two

(M. Steele, D. White)

Oh, my love
You say this is the end
I'll tell you it's the hardest
Thing I've ever had to do, my friend.

But I'll go
I'll do what you say
But when I walk
I will walk away.

From you
And the dark place you come from
The hurt you shared between the two, run now
Hide what you know to be the truth.

Yes, you know (I will walk)
That I will walk away
And I'll pretend (I will walk)
I don't feel somethin' breaking.

Look at yourself
It does no good to cry
It's not forever
But hey
You think that I'm so strong
You think I got it all
Maybe you're wrong though.

So go (I will walk)
And I'll do what you say
But when I walk (I will walk)
I will walk away.

Hey hey (I will walk)
I'll let you walk away
And I'll pretend (I will walk)
I don't feel something breaking.


 

Grateful

(S. Hoffs, D. Schwartz, B. Bottrell)


II carry you up in my arms
I hear you sing yourself to sleep
The sky opens up over your room
You sail into your moonlight dreams
So much more than we can see
So much more than we can see.

All we are and all we need is
All we are and all we need is
All we are is all we need to be
Grateful (all we are and all we need is)
Oh, grateful (all we are and all we need is)
Grateful (all we are and all we need is)
Oh, grateful (all we are and all we need).

This guitar can sing these songs
Changes me instantly
Love is too simple a word
For here comes the sun in the morning
Suddenly happiness
Comes rollin' up from inside me.

All we are and all we need is
All we are and all we need is
All we are is all we need to be
Grateful (all we are and all we need is)
Oh, grateful (all we are and all we need is)
Grateful (all we are and all we need is)
Oh, grateful (all we are and all we need).

Carry you up in my arms
I hear you sing yourself to sleep
The sky opens up over your room
You sail into your moonlight dreams
So much more than we can see
There's so much more than we can see.

All we are and all we need is
All we are and all we need is
All we are is all we need to be
Grateful (all we are and all we need is)
Oh, grateful (all we are and all we need is)
Grateful (all we are is all we need to be)
Oh, grateful.

All we are and all we need is
All we are and all we need is
All we are is all we need to be
Grateful (all we are and all we need is)
Oh, grateful (all we are and all we need is)
Grateful (all we are is all we need to be)
Oh, grateful.

All we are and all we need is
All we are and all we need is
All we are is all we need to be
