FOOL'S GOLD

The Fool's been chasing time
luring her with foolish bribes
And it's soon to wreck his mind
Catching light would make the fool seem bright!

Throw on your old love,
She's not ruined yet, is she? Oh!
And keep your eyes above
And come back down tonight for me.

Ohh Fool's Gold! Ohh Fool's Gold!
Ohh Fool's Gold!

And his heart is full on a stairwell
As he's taming the song for the chord.
And he's getting stoned on silence
So he won't miss the time anymore!

Ohh Fool's Gold! Ohh Fool's Gold!
Ohh Fool's Gold! Gold!
Fool's Gold!


FOR YOU

The sweetest honey for my mind is you.
The feel of your hand in mine is hard to lose.
Am I caught in a landscape where even if I win I lose?
But I'd hate it if you never knew
That I'm saying this song is for you.

Should you feel the music rising from you
Would it surprise you
If I paint you in a tune?
If this song should lose its everything, its melody,
There's one thing it'd never lose,
Me and you!

For you! Ahh Haa Ohhh!
Ahh Haa Ohhh!
For you! Ahh Haa Ohhh!
Ahh Haa Ohhh!
For you! Ahh Haa Ohhh!
Ahh Haa Ohhh!
For you! Ahh Haa Ohhh!
Ahh Haa Ohhh!
For youuuuuu!


ALICE

If one pill could shrink you The other would make you grow tall,
If one word would fill you
Oh wouldn't I say them all.

Alice didn't know what she had
One gave her pain the other was glad!

Daaa taaa daaa doooo!
Daaa taaa daaa doooo!
Dit Dit Dit Dit Di Oooooo!
Dit Dit Dit Dit Di Ooooooooooo!

Sometimes she's scared and others she's glad
Some friends are good and others are bad.
Oh isn't that how it starts
She ran in circles chasing hearts!

Daaa taaa daaa doooo!
Daaa taaa daaa doooo!
Dit Dit Dit Dit Dit Oooooo!
Dit Dit Dit Dit Dit Ooooooooooo!

Oh isn't that how it starts
She ran in circles chasing hearts!

Daaa taaa daaa doooo!
Daaa taaa daaa doooo!
Dit Dit Dit Dit Dit Oooooo!
Dit Dit Dit Dit Dit Ooooooooooo!


COLUMBINE EYES

He leads you down to where you had forgotten,
And then he treats you to his mind.
Fishermen are sleeping in his pocket
While he tells you of the pines!

Oh Columbine Eyes!
Oh Columbine Eyes!
Oh Columbine Eyes!
Oh Columbine!

Nothing ever lasts it seems
First it comes and then it leaves,
You cried in you pretty sleeve, Oh Well.
And isn't that how it goes
For what you've had and what you've known
And everything you've thrown out of your mind.

For Columbine Eyes!
For Columbine Eyes!
For Columbine Eyes!
For Columbine!

He leads you down to where you had forgotten
And then he treats you to his mind.
And Hallelujah's shining through his pocket,
While he sings life with his eyes!

With Columbine Eyes!
With Columbine Eyes!
With Columbine Eyes!
With Columbine!


BIRDS IN MY BELLY

And that sweet halleljuah is singing again saying
Ohhh! Ohhh!
This pining inside me is beating me out howling
Oohhh Ohhh!
You be the roof and let me be the walls of this room.
This is the bride that we've wed and time is her groom.

You're the sweetness to my honey,
You're the sugar to my wine,
You're the daylight to the morning,
You're the melody, you are the ryhme!

And all of these noises are making me anxious with
No Ohhh No!
You use them all in a rhapsody playing my heart solo
You turn them all to a tune.

You're the laughter to my comedy
You're the blue hues in my eye
You're the nervous birds in my belly
You're the roots in me, you are the vine!

You're the nervous birds in my belly!
You're the nervous birds in my belly!


HOLYMEN AND THIEVES

Stay with me,
Stay with me,
I'm not trying to make this right
Watch as they leave,
Watch as they leave
And wonder what the man in the moon is thinking tonight.

And pictures of Holymen and Thieves
Are looming in your mind
And Darling it's not right!
And doesn't it just seem right then
That the old man's growing young?
Darling we could be one!

World spinning round,
World spinning round
Oh and we could make them see!
World spinning round,
World spinning round,
Don't you ruin it before it gets to me!

And Thieves and Hanging Holymen
Are things that change your mind.
And Darling it's not right!
And doesn't it just seem right then
That the old man's growing young?
Darling we could be one!

Stay with me,
Stay with me,
I'm not trying to make this right.


MINORS AND MAJORS OF YOU

Ohhhh!
Ohhhh!
Lalala!

Ohhhh!
Ohhhh!
Lalalalalala!

Beggers can see what is worth their while,
And when Josephine stole Napoleon's smile
It was you, rising and falling.
And it keeps you still,
Oh in the palm of your hand.
And all of man's will wouldn't save you
From what you had been! Oh!

Ohhhh!
Ohhhh!
Lalala!

Ohhhh!
Ohhhh!
Lalalalalala!

And all of man's will shared a fortunate end,
And a day with you would be time that's well spent,
Which gave way to your comings and goings.
The minors and majors of you are swelling in me!
Your cup overfilled drinking from what you had seen.

Ohhhh!
Ohhhh!
Lalala!

Ohhhh!
Ohhhh!
Lalalalalala!


THE ARCHER'S SON

The dancing of the pendulum the swaying of the grain
But you won't talk about your sorrows or your loves again
Oh Ohhhh Oh will you?

Oh The Archer's son!
Oh The Quiet one!

You fell out of your mothers branches oh when you were young
You said the taste for words escaped from your lungs
Oh Ohhhh Oh did they?

Oh The Archer's son!
Oh The Quiet one!

You talk about your father's tale, Your mother's trees for eyes
You're pleased with your secrets, you'd never call them lies
Oh Ohhhh Oh were they?

Oh The Archer's son!
Oh The Quiet one!
Oh The Archer's son!
Oh The Quiet one!


HEY

What started a joke has me thinking
What looked like a cage set me free
What started wrong ended perfect
A single page grew a tree and

Hey! Ohhhh!

There are cages on your doors
And they never go away
When you were young all you were young
And you never had to say just

Hey! Ohhhh!

There is something Oh inside
That never was that way
When you are full on your fill
Of what you had to say just

Hey! Ohhhh!
Ohhhh!
Ohhhh!
Ohhhh!


THE WORLD'S ON FIRE

The world's on fire
Where nothing grows
Tonight I saw you
Heaping on the coals

You're speaking in tongues and aching with pain,
You're out of you heart,
You've fevered your brain.

Ohhh Noo! You're no good!
Ohhh Noo! You're no good!

Brothers and Sisters turn your faults into gains
Again and again
Mothers and Fathers turn your hearts from pain
Now do it again

The world's on fire
Where nothing grows
Tonight I saw you
Heaping on the coals

You're speaking in tongues and aching with pain,
You're out of you heart,
You've fevered your brain.

Ohhh Noo! You're no good!
Ohhh Noo! You're no good!

The world's on fire
Where nothing grows
Tonight I saw you
Heaping on the coals!


WINTER

Winter takes her dischord
and spends it laughing with me.
The sons that she will leave us with
would say the fault lies with me.

But you won't find it in me.
You won't find it in me.
What you're hoping to see.
Oh you won't find it in me.

The leaves of trees heard the howl
of bitter cold wanting me,
and what you wanted and sought
I never claimed that I'd be.

But you won't find it in me
You won't find it in me
What you're hoping to see.
Oh you won't find it in me
You named the snowflakes for me
And held the birds in your hair.
There was a time when I thought
That all Novembers lead there.

But you won't find it in me.
You won't find it in me.
Though you're hoping to see it,
Oh you won't find it in me.

And you won't find it in me.
You won't find it in me.
Though you're hoping to see,
Ohhh!
You won't find it in me.
