Steven copied this for me from the lyric sheet of the original vinyle.
Enjoy !


Sunset Hotel

The Sunset Hotel is covered in Spanish moss
Go and hide there cause so much has changed
Are you keeping a score Can't stay clear - still a child
It's like a long holiday, it's been so quiet.
Sha la la
Been out of reach and now it's hard to come in again
...Aren't you haunted enough?
Sha la la
The roofs over their heads I just mean trouble there
They forget what they hoped whatever it was it didn't arrive
Not facing the world, the Show is Old Medicine
There it's catch catch-as-catch-can
Where waiting is better than any event
Shall I save love?
Shall I SAVE LOVE or ruin? Could I save Lover Ruined?



Mr. Somewhere

Day comes up sicker than a cat
Something's wrong and that is that
Mr. Somewhere's missing somewhere
Never did figure just how much
A boat from the river takes you out
Cross the other side of town
To get out to get out you take the tide
Any tide any tide Like there isn't gonna be any tide
la la
A word like tomorrow wears things out
It's hard enough to get what's yours for now
And the hardest words are spoken softly
Look! no hands upon no heart
la la
Now the milkman beats you to the door
That was once a home home no more
Mr. Somewhere's missing somewhere
Couldn't get the calendar to stop Missing somewhere
Never did figure just how much Missing somewhere
Never will admit just how much.
What’s The Morning For ?

First steps on all fours
I got hands that feel like paws I haven't kept still
for more than a week get an eyeful of hearse if I
can't get a drink Can't get a drink
She'll leave no scars Just her feathers and scarf
Outside her it's a company town inside a burial
ground A burial ground
CHORUS
But you have worn out your welcome
like a child and a doll
Sick sick sick of the dark Worn out
What's the morning for?

Light rushes in It's our palace of tin Pure is pure
rapt in her heat No one could know what coulda What
could have been

The best part of all It's the ghost-ride that stalls
A roomful of nightingales turn to scarecrows
Is that poison ivy or an English rose?
An English rose

CHORUS
END So maybe you have been here too
Maybe you will be here soon


All The Birthdays

O it's madtime bedtime and full of possibilities
All the birthdays come at once
Been swamped by vaudeville?
Can't defeat your innocence
Though it's good for only little tears from Kitten
I'm slow with small talk, we used to get on famously
Now there's nothing to perfect
Got sold on big talk it just doesn't matter anymore
It's cold, you'd better come on inside

So you get restless don't it get the same for everyone?
Convinced by only one time in their lives
And been full of gifts - you have no one to give them to
When all the birthdays come at once.
Keep your distance the game's not worth the candle of confusing
vanity with power
You say I seem so distant lost all sense of consequences
But I try to keep this world alight

Vanished days only mean so much by vanishing
All the birthdays are best forgotten
So I shrug my shoulders and slip into another tongue
Knowing nothing can be perfect
Took that curse - there's nothing left could do us any harm
Spare me the rituals of sorrow


Great Fool

White nights in a white season Storms sweep up and
down the Coast Soaking wet on sugar days You shiver
you shivered in your clothes
If the law inside the room Becomes the law outside I
can't serve any other law Never found any other way
to get by...FOOL
CHORUS
For the kind who keep the world alight Great Fool For
the kind who keep the world alight So glad you're
here we were happy here

Take me in Can I belong? A life of tricks coming
down like hail I had to get delivered, kept from
myself Sent by you, you've never failed But part of
the plan Is to just disappear When enough is just
not enough Tenderness shouldn't get this tough or
cruel on us...FOOLS We're Fools
CHORUS
But the kind who keep the world alight We're Great
Fools


Speechless With Tuesday

Speechless with Tuesday, she makes me better than I am
Well we get along. We get along
She rocks the cradle in the wooden shack
The children sleep upon the flour sacks
Out of this world Loose! Loose!
Out of the chain of lies we've all had to use
We've all had to use That's really something to lose
Not far enough that's as close as I get
There's no spare rooms in her House of Regret
Haunted beneath that marrying moon
Often she lies in till noon Cries thru to noon
Ride home, sweet stranger Ride on the sheets
Big lonely river and the neon streets
Caught up in fears, cornered I never won out
Shoulda stayed shoulda stayed speechless speechless
speechless with Tuesday
Cannot Tell The Days Apart

Yeah can't tell the days apart
Can't tell the triumph from defeat
Yeah can't tell the days apart
Can't tell a whistle from a drum What have we done ?
If I been had bad bad, well I guess I coulda been hadder
Getting locked out from the only things that matter
But there are things you will not tell
You cannot tell - go on TELL, TELL ME that
You cannot tell the days apart It's a plea, you plead
If it gets at me like it got at you
It could follow on across the sea
So you're up, up, up from where they had you nailed
I can't contain my happiness then suddenly it fails
Yeah ride where I ride Ride the elevator of her eyes, her eyes
I've been the man who loved the rain
Don't look down in the drain Open all your windows wide
There's still something to seek, somebody lied
How would they know ? They're not alive
The things I believed come out of nowhere
We starved to get these souvenirs and find they're really not worth keeping
Fall into the tender trap - feels so tender
Well ride, where I ride Ride the elevator of her eyes of her eyes
Yes you'll be the one who loved the rain
and Cannot tell, cannot tell, cannot tell the days apart


Lazarus, Lazarus

Lazarus Lazarus are you blue ?
The girls are too busy hunting spoons
Hey ! That's no way to leave us
Can't you wave goodbye?
Hey ! You're really living with your shut shoteyes
The girls walk Lazarus just till he gets his legs
You gets the lesson where you crawls and begs
I didn't really mean it Must have measured you wrong
So long pals - so long
The girls walk Lazarus thru the dead mans rise
Old engines howl behind his eyes
False sincerity that's The Boss Are you still with us Laz ?
Or all ready, steady lost
The girls walk Lazarus all around the room
As he changes colour from red to blue
There's your drama. Here's your fuel
Everybody's here cause there's nothin' else to do



The Black Road Shines (on rainy nights)

The sky's black with birds
They go home at dusk some will get beat some will get lost
CHORUS
O how the black road shines On rainy nights
How I gotta gotta getaway The black road shines

Night crawling by white moon in town
You'll end up driftin' You'll wear that crown
CHORUS
The milk wagon rolls Uphill thru fog
I climbed right on Just for the climb
And now the black road shines On rainy nights
Now I wanna wanna getaway
How the black road shines Shine
on black road Shine on black road
Road that leads away from everything
Shine on SHINE on SHINE
