Alright, another addition, thanks Brad.

I'll have to check out that Cobra lyric.  Others do the same!

(They just anounced MMJ on Conan at the beginning and the crowd went effing bananas!) ;)
I'm digging, digging deep in myself, but who needs a shovel when you have a little boy like mine.

QuoteDoes anyone have the lyrics for "Come Closer"?

should do - let me check and see if i still have the words (that i hear anyhow) written out...
on edit: drrrr.  ha.  just wrote them all out and read that they're up in the music sex-shon
dang that's a fantastic song.

QuoteCobra lyric under dispute...
Instead of the "Car Chairs" verse in the 'How Come' act, today I thought it sounded like, Too many conch shells and not enough beads...

I thought it was:

"Too many crotches and not enough knees."

QuoteCan someone read the Time Never Gets & Josta Dreams lyrics and help with the question marks?  Listen to the whole thing actually and give me your comments.

Josta Dreams and Bitter Hands
if they told you tonight
that you could start again
would you grab your car keys
and make your way out
i see [better days then these its nice out]
and i see [bare arms and man its nice out]

josta dreams and bitter hands

there's just no room
there's just no way out tonight
there's just no way out
thank you too jim

heartbreakinwoman

Josta Dreams and Bitter Hands

and i see [bare arms and man its nice out]

here's what i got from it...

Josta Dreams and Bitter Hands

if they told you tonight
that you could start again
would you grab your car keys
and make your way out
i've seen [better days then these its nice out]
and i've seen [better arms than mine and its nice out]

oh josta dreams and bitter hands
and Natural Lights (or something Heights) in/and Buckingham
 
there's just no room
there's just no way out of tonight
there's just no way out  
The river is moving. The blackbird must be flying.

tomEisenbraun

here's what I hear. the last line is a little indistinct, so let's get some other opinions.

Somebody Cares About The Maestro

close the door
don't wait up for me
for me

you with him
i can't swim away
but i'll watch awhile...
The river is moving. The blackbird must be flying.

tomEisenbraun

Nothing 2 Me

Everytime I think I find a reason to go on
I look inside at your sunken eyes and I find that I'm wrong

I would laugh and I would breathe(read?)
but I never said you were nothing to me
ahhhh, you were nothing to me...

...ahhhhh you were nothing to me (with repetition and drum machined handclaps)...
The river is moving. The blackbird must be flying.

tomEisenbraun

Goodnights in othersbeds!!!

Goodnight and happy trails when you've got all tomorrow's hopes and that's

Goodbye
happy trails and I've
said all
there is to say (ad infinitum)
The river is moving. The blackbird must be flying.

BH

Well done Tom.  I will listen to those some time soon!   Four more to go.  Breathin' might remain a mystery for eternity.  is it breathin' after work?

tomEisenbraun

breathin'.....after dark

The river is moving. The blackbird must be flying.

Not sure if this is exactly right thread, but Jim sings Come Closer a little different at xmas time..

So I slave away
On the floor and wall for a day
bringing the gifts on your sleigh
get emotional each time we say your name

oh santa you look so strong
what held you that you took so long?
you told me that you'd bring me a gift
there's something left you gotta give

how long can you stay?
I've been waiting all year
just to see you

come closer
come closer
come closer
come closer

so today...
so today, I won't go anywhere for a change
snow on the roof for your sleigh
good at holding back the countin away the days

oh santa you look so strong
what held you that you took so long?
they told me you'd bring me a gift
there's something left you gotta give

how long can you stay?
I've been waiting all year
just to see you

come closer
come closer
come closer
come closer
come closer
come closer
come closer
come closer
I was never that good with the words, anyway

Good Call!  I think I like that version even better than the original.  The sleigh bells and the whole mood of the song is sweet. I will add that to the "Other" section.  Thanks!

And if by "Bright New Morning" you mean "New Morning" from the xmas EP, it is by Nick Cave, here is that

I just added my interpretation of R.I.P.V.G.

Now that just leaves three.....

XMAS FIASCO

I Just Wanted To Say  

Xmas Time Is Here Again

RUN THRU SINGLE

Breathin

I'll do the Xmas songs later if no one beats me to it.   But I challenge all of you to come up with the breathin' lyrics.  Even if you make it up.  It will be funny.  Don't read anyone elses version until you are done, so you won't be influenced and let's see what we get.
