Mascara Mascara Running down Your face Mascara Mascara Running down Your face From your eyes Your eyes You tried your luck on the carousel He lied, he lied Tried your luck on the Ferris wheel He lied, he lied You tried your luck in the Tunnel of Love But there wasn’t any love in the Tunnel of Love And it turns out The Tunnel of Love Was a lie Miranda Miranda Was the name He sighed Miranda Not Mariah Was the name Not your name, not your name He sighed When he lied With his eyes You tried your luck on the carousel He lied, he lied Tried your luck on the Ferris wheel He lied, he lied Tried your luck in the Tunnel of Love But there wasn’t any love in the Tunnel of Love And it turns out The Tunnel of Love Was a lie You think you’ll never touch the ground again As the wonder wheel turns round and round The tears that fall when the ride gets to the top Down at the bottom you can catch on your tongue Like a sad, salt raindrop The music of the carousel Smell of sawdust and shucked peanut shells Will haunt your dreams ’Til you have dreamed your last First heartbreak’s like a slap in the face With a bag of broken glass Poor Mariah With your mascara Running down Your face From your eyes You despise For the tears They cry You tried your luck on the carousel He lied, he lied Tried your luck on the Ferris wheel He lied, he lied Tried your luck in the Tunnel of Love But there wasn’t any love in the Tunnel of Love And it turns out The Tunnel of Love Yeah, it turns out The Tunnel of Love Yeah, it turns out The Tunnel of Love It was a lie!

You can touch the spot With your finger You can touch the spot With your tongue You can ask yourself Why didn’t you linger? Linger, linger, linger At home? Remember the feeling Remember the feeling When you Were leaving Remember the feeling Remember the feeling When you Were leaving Remember Remember the feeling Remember the feeling When you Were leaving Remember the feeling Remember the feeling When you Were leaving Remember Remember When you walked out the door When you walked out the door The door the door With the blood in your mouth The stain of your sin Forget the taste you’ll never taste again You walked away from the taste of her Perfect skin When you walked out the door When you walked out the door The door the door From her green ocean eyes Her eyes Dropped pearls filled with lies Your lies With the blood in your mouth The stain of your sin Forget the taste you’ll never taste again You walked away from the taste of her Perfect skin Oh… oh… oh… With the blood in your mouth The stain of your sin Forget the taste you’ll never taste again You walked away from the taste of her Perfect skin Oh… oh… oh… Why didn’t you linger You linger? Why didn’t you linger You linger? Why didn’t you linger You linger? Why didn’t you?

KATYUSHA 05:35 video
Take me back to Leningrad past Estonia’s sightly shores Summer’s in the marshes and the rushes shine with gauze We’ll hang around in cafés sucking Vladimirs through straws But I don’t know Katyusha I don’t know You look so goddamn lovely that I wish that I was dead Your lashes flutter softly while you’re sleeping in your bed Alexander Pushkin murmurs verses in my head But I’ll just wait around for the snow Katyusha I’ll just wait around ’Cause this time I’ve come to see you to say to you goodbye Do svidaniya my Katyusha do svidaniya dry your eye God grant you find another who will love you till you die And I’ll just disappear with the snow Katyusha I’ll just disappear with the snow And when the Neva starts to freeze And all the leaves fall from the trees The thermometer shows no degrees I’ll be leaving Take me to Helsinki to Hamburg and on to Cork Across the wide Atlantic to the canyons of New York My lips so numb by now my dear that I can hardly talk And we’ll both disappear in the snow Katyusha We’ll both disappear in the snow We’ll both disappear in the snow And when the Neva starts to freeze And all the leaves fall from the trees The thermometer shows no degrees I’ll be leaving The Gulf of Finland’s deep and cold The Baltic Sea will I behold When all its waters turn to gold In the evening

In the month of June on the eighteenth day We braced our sheets and we sailed away And our colours flew up against the sky But all of Greenland’s ice was in the captain’s eye It was eighteen months without a sight of land No mountains green not a stretch of sand The belly timber gone and the rum run dry And all of Greenland’s ice was in the captain’s eye We suffered keen and bitter blasts Our dearest hopes they were slipping fast And to a man we thought that we would die ’Cause all of Greenland’s ice was in the captain’s eye There came a sail out on the main But this brave sight vexed our captain’s brain We cried out loud as the ship came by ’Cause all of Greenland’s ice was in the captain’s eye For our despair he would make us pay And the captain steered our ship away And I asked him straight the reason why ’Cause all of Greenland’s ice is in my eye That night I saw him against the rail And the waves did crash and the winds did wail And his tears would freeze if he could but cry ’Cause all of Greenland’s ice was in his eye

Check the oil, top off the tank Cash my last paycheck at the bank Last light in town, the corner store Can’t stand to stay here anymore My 1990 Chevrolet I drive on out to Dismal Bay Drive through the rain, drive through the fear Got no windshield wipers for my tears Checked my dusty rearview Thought I caught a fleeting glimpse of you So I said, jump in the front and lock the door Can’t stand to taste these tears no more Contemplating wrong or right As the day overcomes the night I wear the yoke and bear the load And took the turn on Misery Road Winding road, the long way home Ten thousand miles I plan to roam No time to eat, no time to pray So I stop off to ask the way I ask his name, it’s Devereaux He said turn right on Sadness Avenue He said the road is long and hard Turn right on Despair Boulevard Contemplating wrong or right As the day overcomes the night I wore the yoke and bore the load And took the turn on Misery Road Lost and rambling, roaming Destination unknown Always wherever I’ve gone I just want to go home And never be alone Contemplating wrong or right As the day overcomes the night I throw the yoke to spare the load Don’t take the turn I missed the turn on Misery Road

Well I was broken in two Boo hoo Dry your eyes, you said And let me paint your windows blue On the inside Standing in the rain The cold November rain Come inside, you said And we’ll paint your windows blue On the inside So then Your sky Will always be Blue I was blinded by the haze Of those dark, electric days Close your eyes, you said And watch me paint your windows blue On the inside So then Your sky Will always be Blue Oh when The sparkle in your eyes Matches The blue of the skies Open the window Open the window And feel The warm summer Breeze So when you’re broken in two And you don’t know what to do Do like I do And paint your windows blue On the inside So then Your sky Will always be Blue

YES! 04:59 video
Well I went out walkin’ and I found myself talkin’ To all the nice people I met My eyes were gleamin’ so they asked me the meanin’ Said, are you in love Oh, man, you bet! My feet they were flyin’ with a walk that was stylin’ A serious hitch in my step This real strong feelin’ got my head reelin’ Way up in the clouds Like a Pan Am jet Knees they were knockin’ with a rhythm that’s rockin’ A bangin’ of beats in my chest My heart it’s thumpin’ and the blood it’s pumpin’ In waves A sweet love tempest You can ask me why and I’ll say on the fly In fact I’d rather sing I found love and I find love to be a many-splendored thing The streets were alive, Fifth Avenue’s vibe The fabulous upper crust set All envy my passion and they’ll make it the fashion Like diamonds, pearls And long cigarettes Broadway’s beating a song repeating A Louis and Keely duet Horns blazing and it sounds amazing As romantic As it gets Lights shining with the planets aligning The angels dance minuets Round stars twinkling and they give me the inkling My lonely life’s Not over yet All I’m sayin’, after all my prayin’ The answer she gave, can you guess? She finally, finally, finally She said yes! Oh yes! She said yes! Yes! She said yes! Well, I got down on my knees Begged pretty please Still can’t believe, I can’t believe She said yes! When love comes callin’ and you feel like you’re fallin’ Don’t look for the safety net Embrace it with joy, I mean it my boy ’Cause it all ends In life’s last sunset Advice, it’s fleeting, but it bears repeating Don’t waste the one life you get Go out on the street, find the first girl you meet Kiss her Get ready, get set! I know it’ll scare you, but baby I dare you You don’t wanna fail this test Love’s the only thing I know can bring True happiness Don’t have to be lonely If only, if only If only She will say yes! Oh yes! She said yes! Yes! She said yes! Well, I got down on my knees Begged pretty please Still can’t believe, can’t believe She said yes! Oh yes! She said yes! Yep! She said yes! Well, I got down on my knees I begged pretty please Still can’t believe, can’t believe She said yes! Oh yes! She said yes! Yes! She said yes! Well, I got down on my knees Begged pretty please Still can’t believe, can’t believe She said yes! She said yes!

There’s a man with burning eyes His face a mask A brilliant disguise Watch his mouth He’ll tell you lies And carry you Away He’ll promise you many things Build you mansions Buy you diamond rings Under his overcoat He has wings He’ll fly you You’ll cry When he carries you away He’ll walk like a lover He’ll pray like a saint He’ll sing like Caruso But the words he sings are ancient They all say Come away Come away He’ll follow you in your dreams The world he shows you Is not what it seems Don’t listen To the screams When he carries you away They say his heart is as black as night They say the angels all weep at the sight of him Your blood runs cold, you’ll die of fright When he carries you away Don’t go away with him Baby stay Don’t go away with him Baby stay Don’t go away, no, no Don’t go away with the man With the man with the Burning eyes The diamond ring is a ring of fire The house he builds, a funeral pyre Locked inside watch the flames grow higher And higher, and higher, and higher My God, my God The fire! The fire! They say he’s known as the Prince of Fear He’ll take his throne when the end is near Abandon hope all ye who enter here He’s the man, the man, the man With the burning eyes With the burning eyes With the burning eyes He’s the man with the burning eyes!

Ay ay ay ay, mi paraíso nada más . . . Mi paraíso nada más Ellas causan a mi madre llorar Las rajas de una cebolla Para mi, hay otros vapores Que causan a llorarme también Sobre el real oscuro Flota la luna roja Su luz me duele los ojos Y yo lloro siete mares Yo lloro siete mares Ay ay ay ay, mi paraíso nada más . . . Mi paraíso nada más El pelo de mi amor Su alacena y su cama Ahora velan los pasillos Y me envuelve en un niebla Yo hincho mis narices Y aspira mis tristezas Yo no mido el piso O me preocupo por ti O me preocupo por ti Ay ay ay ay, mi paraíso nada más . . . Mi paraíso nada más Ay ay ay ay, mi paraíso nada más . . . Mi paraíso nada más

These damn damson and custard sunsets Are wearing pretty thin But they’re just objective correlatives Of some turbulence within Where the fields absorb the fiery orb No more skies of salmon skin Good night my love and fare you well My heart it hurts like bloody hell I robbed this chorus from Jacques Brel Ne me quitte pas . . . I found you in the perfumed dusk You were callow you were young And awkwardly you talked with me In my bloody mother tongue And now each evening comes around Like the Götterdämmerung That evening I remember well The sky it shone like oyster shell You leaned your face on my lapel But never came to my hotel Ne me quitte pas . . . Ne me quitte pas . . . You wilted against the stonework And squinted at the dawn You scorned my laggard footsteps In the dew across your lawn And now the sun each morning rises Like des Gottes Zorn This blighted world I am doomed to dwell You find me in my lonely cell With a soughing wind and a heavy swell My ardour I’ve tried hard to quell With several bottles of cheap Moselle Lebe wohl chère Mademoiselle Ne me quitte pas . . .

THE BONES 05:31
Your raven hair was a challenge Your lips a Strawberry Starburst® threat And when you looked your look my way Your look was damp and dripping wet Underneath your lashes Long and thick as worms Flamed your icy icicle eyes They blistered me up in cold third degree burns This could be a problem Yeah, could be a problem I got a little problem Yeah Your fingernails were pointed Sharp as ebony violin bows And when you ran them down my back The blood ran down in rows Skin as white as parchment Felt cool to the touch And when I slipped the knife in How could I know you would scream so much? This could be a problem Yeah, could be a problem I got a little problem Yeah The bones . . . The bones . . . Dig a hole And fill it in Feel the pull And start again Dig a hole And fill it in Feel the pull And start again Jenny Lee was twenty-one And Audrey was the little one Tiny had the short brown hair I see their faces everywhere Penny’s folks were out of town The night I brought the hammer down Cindy Lee and Lindy Lou And Lindy’s little sister, too Polly looked like Clara Bow Somewhere out in Idaho Betty Bates stayed out too late She’s buried on the interstate There’s this thing You should’ve known . . . Don’t sit under the apple tree With anyone like me Anyone like me no, no, no Anyone like me no, no, no Don’t sit under the apple tree With anyone like me Or you may never get home Twelve full moons have ripened Time flown like an agony bat from hell I tried to stop the voices But they ring in my head like a doomsday bell Fathers, watch your daughters Men, lock up your wives They still ain’t found the bones yet And I still got my sticking knife The bones . . . The bones . . .

I went down Went down went down To the river I went down Went down went down To the river I saw your perfect body Ebbing there I went down Went down went down To the river The cold rushing water Was washing through your hair Lord, why’s my girl lying In an early watery grave? Lord, why did the sound of the wind in the trees Bring music of tolling bells? I went down Went down went down To the river I went down Went down went down To the river Last night Under the light Of the harvest moon And I saw my girl standing in the arms Of another man Lord, why did the sound of the wind in the trees Bring music of tolling bells The blood in my ears Was a drumbeat like thunder And the things what I saw Like a shot to the brain As I held my Beautiful girl under The tears fell from my eyes Like the warm, warm summer rain There’s not enough water in all the rivers in the world To wash away my shame I’m gonna go down Gonna go down go down To the river I’m gonna go down Gonna lie down lie down In the river Take a deep breath of the water And look to the stars Gonna see my girl Standing At the gates of Paradise And tell her I’m sorry So, so sorry Gonna see my girl Standing In the arms of Jesus Now I know why the sound of the wind in the trees Brings music of tolling bells The sound of the wind in the trees Is gonna be me Screaming From Hell

SUMMER DRESS 04:44
He He was thinking Up a new way To dance for her And he He was thinking Up a new way to explain His dreams for her ’Cause he Really loves her But she She’s not so sure He He was thinking About how great she looked in that summer dress She wore And he He was wondering If he’d ever find happiness For sure ’Cause he Really loves her But she She’s not so sure What if I named all the stars in the sky After you? What if I promised you’d never Walk alone? What if I said that all the thoughts in my head Were only you? What if I licked a million popsicle sticks And built you a home? Oh, she She was thinking Up a million good reasons Not to love him But she She was thinking That maybe Maybe he’d do ’Cause he Really loves her He Really loves her He Really loves her That’s for sure Me I’ve been thinking About how great you look In that summer dress

She Talks Italian She Talks Italian Under her breath Late at night In her sleep She Says te amo Mi amore Under her breath I love you My love Satellites Spin safe in their orbits Through the soft milky light That powers the moon And stars Like road maps to Heaven Semaphore Morse code Digital overload Signal fires Signalling Everything, everything, everything’s Right with the world The world She’s A lost continent She’s A brave new world A far distant shore A foreign land To explore She Dreams in Spanish She sighs Portuguese And late at night When I pray Late at night I pray I pray She won’t leave Satellites Spin safe in their orbits Through the soft milky light That powers the moon And stars Like road maps to Heaven Semaphore Morse code Digital overload Signal fires Signalling Everything, everything, everything’s Right with the world The world The world the world the world the world the world The sun Can burn The sun Can burn The sun Can The sun Can burn The nighttime Is wonderful The nighttime Is wonderful The nighttime Is wonderful
