Following are all of the lyrics for the MMJ songs not shown in the official music section. †These are unofficial and compiled by various members of the board. † Anyone who would like to add to this or comment on any of the lyrics shown, please do!

CHAPTER 1 The Sandworm Cometh

Weeks Go by Like Days
Forever...that's how long it would take
forever...not as long as you'd think (as a day?)
 
Long is the road †
I have always been told
how lonely can one boy be?
Long is the road
i have always been told
how long can one man wait?
 
Forever...
 
Forever...that's how long I would wait
forever...not as long as you'd think
 
long is the road i have always been told
how lonely can one boy be?
long is the road i have always been told
how long can one man wait?
 
Forever...


What Will I Do?
woah, what will I do
when nothin happens to me?
oh, all my life is runnin around like machinery...
 
tuggin and pullin my coat
tuggin and pullin:
"come on, get up!
get up and get ready to go!"


Downtown
If there was a play (place) downtown
that they talked about every day
then I'd want to move uptown
tell the microphone he can't play
tell the acid man we don't want him (it)
tell the microphone he can't play
tell the acid man we don't want him (it)

there's not a lot that you can say
to make the microphone man go 'way
there's not a lot that you can say
to make the microphone man go 'way
there's not a lot that you can say
i don't want him (it) i dont' want him (it)

i don't want him (it)

I don't want him (it)


I Just Wanted to Be Your Friend
Even though I was really friendly
I just wanted to be your friend
even though there's no happy endings
i just wanted it to end
(repeat)
 
Go, I've had enough...
 
Gone, gone, gone...


Time Never Gets
time never gets
it's hands on my back
life without time
is like a heart attach
but i know there's still hope
(?)
and i know there's still hope
(?)
time never gets
it's hands on my back
life without you
is like a heart attach
but i know there's still hope
of life in the park(?)
and i know there's still hope
of life after dark


Isobella w/ The White Umbrella
Should I lie here on the corner sofa
Just wanting
Like a rambler from the edge of the garden (?)
On the can (?) †
I'm sure... that's why call her
Isobella with the white umbrella
I'm sure
Where they found her, no she'll never tell ya
 I'm sure †
Should I go down to the †
corner store
Buy some medicine †
march for the floor
Should I wind up in an
old run down town †
I don't know
Should I come on the †
subway train
That's why I call ya on the †
information train †
That's why they call her
Isobella with the white umbrella
I'm sure
Isobella with the white umbrella
I know


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 †


When Will They Come??
I crashed my car 12 am
I saw my ex putting me in debt
Oh Lord, when will they come
Iím getting tired seeing faces
These animals they call the human race
Oh Lord, when will they come
If thatís alright I look to the sky
One of these days theyíre going bring me back
Oh Lord, when will they come
Here I go, away from this place
These animals they the human race
Oh Lord, they finally come
Oh Lord, when will they come
Oh Lord, when will they come
Oh Lord, when will they come
When will they come
When will they come
When will they come
Oh Lord, they finally come


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...


CHAPTER 2 Learning

Tonite I Want 2 Celebrate W/ You!
Tonight i wanna celebrate with you
just forget now and let's begin anew
cuz in this land of broken dreams
where money means most everything
i think i need to celebrate with you
 
tonight i wanna celebrate with you
troubles of today are finally through
the fireworks go off tonight
it'll be just like the 4th of July
and all because I celebrate with you
 
and they say:
God bless...
God bless the US


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)...

I Wont Cry!
She ain't gonna love me till I'm gone
she ain't gonna make a happy home
Love me 'till I'm dead
Scratched until I bled
I was with you then
Now I'm starting again
I won't cry (I won't cry)
Won't say goodbye(Won't say goodbye)
I won't cry
I was with you then
Now I'm starting again †
She ain't gonna love me till I'm gone †
she ain't gonna build a happy home
Love me 'till I'm dead
Scratched until I bled
I was with you then
Now I'm starting again
I won't cry (I won't cry)
Won't say goodbye (Won't say goodbye)
I won't cry
I was with you then †
Now I'm starting again †

Yeah, yeah!


That Someone Else Was You
have you ever seen yourself
through the eyes of someone else
only to find that someone else was you?

wish it weren't so complicated
but it'll have to do

found you on the ground in front of the elevator door
Beechwood (each one?) has a sound escape
and love light from the radio
knew that you were feelin bad
knew that I weren't feelin good
matted hair, unconscious sighs
and Levi's on your big white thighs..


Good Nights In Others' Beds (Good Nights And Happy Trails!!!!!)
I'm digging, digging deep in myself, but who needs a shovel when you have a little boy like mine.

CHOCOLATE & ICE

Can You See The Hard Helmet On My Head
Can you see the hard
helmet on my head...
totally unscarred
serves protection for my head
 
but I can't believe
everything I read...
 
one that makes them warm
don't ever lose any of your god-given charm
they believe you were sweet
but you could never pull that one on me
 
cuz I'd still recall
in no time at all
you went from being so out of control
to snuffin out the rock that beats
 
that's why I thought this was so neat
someplace to go where i felt so all-at-ease
no need to write no need to call
there's no one to see
there's no you no me
no need to be anything at all...
 
blood pours out of the walls
fills up beside the clothes in my dresser drawers
wish I was quicker on the draw


Sooner
start out early in the mornin
they get up way before the sun
with flowin lights the city bustles
it truly grins for everyone
 †
take their little Jim to Xavier
take him to slowly to the show
and in my eyes they show the loveliness
that brings me back to you so much
 †
Sooner or later they come to see you
feed you power in the yellow sun
for all your days they keep you movin
quick as lightnin they'll be gone
 †
i know the soul needs wine and kindness
i know the eye needs lots of fun
i know these things will come to see you
to prove it's true i'll tell everyone
 †
Sooner or later they'll come to see you
and feel your power in the yellow sun
to all your days I wish you blindness †
from all the evils in the world
 †
Sooner or later I'll come to see you
feel your power in the yellow sun..


Cobra
Cobra comes up next to me.
Anywhere he goes, heís silently. † † † † † † † † † †
How do you take speaking so much?
How do you live without a loverís touch?
Dale always says itís easy †
Iím hooked on four like one, two, three
I got them moves, declared to me
You need to listen cuz I guarantee youíre for sure
 
Now I know Iíve been moviní too much
Iím gonna live for my hottieís touch
 
How do you take him speaking so much?
How do you live without a loverís touch?
 
Covered in charcoal, head to toe
Sticky, stick charcoal, I want you to know
How I long till I get these off
Theyíre so convenient but at such a cost
King I go out to plead
Sticky, sticky warmth, come and rush to me
I want to know, I want to see
Thereís life for me
 
Oh how I long till I get these off
Theyíre so convenient but at such a cost.
 
II
I know somebody, yes, I know someone
Who loves to wait, loves to wait for the policeman to come.
I know somebody, yes, I know them well
And Iím aware of the thought they call ringing the bell
 
Four on the floor and four in the air
Iím drinkiní cold, cold lightning with the bugs in my hair
I knew a partner, yes, I knew his house (now)
 
I know somebody, yes, I know someone
Who likes to wait, likes to wait for the policeman to come.
 
I know somebody, yes, I know them well
And Iím aware of the thought they call ringing the bell
Four on the floor and four in the air
Iím drinkiní cold, cold lightning with the bugs in my hair
I knew a partner, yes, I knew his house (now)
 
I know somebody, yes, I know someone,
Who loves to wait, loves to wait for those policeman to come.
I know somebody, yes I know them well
And Iím aware of the thought they call ringing the bell.
Out on the floor and four in the air
Iím drinkiní cold, cold lightning with the buzz in my hair
I knew a partner, yes, I knew his house (now)
 
III
Why do my toes always feel so cold?
How come? How come? How come?
Whyís all the soap always burn like a rope?
How come? How come? How come?
When I see your reflection, it always frightens me
So strong that I can hardly speak. †
How come?
 
Mixed up potion, the summerís ocean
I feel Iím swimming in tannin lotion
Too many car chairs, and not enough leads
How come? How come? How come?
 
Thank you for all the sleep
So I know the sparkís aside
Stuff that keeps me clean
Stuff that helps me breathe
The lamps, the lights, the kerosene
Beautiful, two gardenias spring
How come?
 
Why does all the soap always burn like the rope?
How come? How come? How come?
Whyís all my toes always seem so cold?
How come? How come? How come?
 
IV
Just wanna shout out to all yíall, all the fellas
I guess we were staying here,
Iíd like to give a shout out to all the xxxxx,
From the north, Dallas, all the way down to San Antone,
Itís a real good feeliní, they got goiní far, (?)
All the xxxxx xxxx xxxxxxx xxxxx body,
They be gone, but I reckon Iím xxxx every day,
You know what Iím saying?
So I guess itís a fine way to end.
We out.


Holy
don't forget which way it goes †
i could be the one to show you that †
life is more than scenery †
won't you please you please a place for me †
 †
i could prove that bitch is holy †
but it would be the one that told me that †
life is not pure misery †
will you please you please a place for me


Sweetheart
Slowly you strolled over to where I sit †
You strayed from Cristos, †
but now Iím one with him. †
 †
Sweetheart, lover, words you'd use for me †
I work to get to you forever †
To melt you into me †
 †
ahhhhh †
 †
Slowly i strolled over where you sit. †
It took so long, now Iím into it. †
 †
Sweetheart, lover I wanted you before †
But when the heart beats next to me †
I want it even more †


XMAS FIASCO

I Just Wanted To Say

Xmas Time Is Here Again

HEARTBREAKIN' MAN EP

R.I.P.V.G.
On the phone.
Death comes first to strangers,
then to those,
who need to know.
(If you get to see them part.)

And ever before.
On the phone.
Death comes first to strangers,
then to those,
who need it most.
(Oh, who need it most. Who need it most.)
I'm digging, digging deep in myself, but who needs a shovel when you have a little boy like mine.

OFF THE RECORD SINGLE

How Could I Know (Oxen)
wanted to see your holy mouth(laugh/vow)
wanted to feel the air come out
dirty thoughts occured to me that
i coulda had em if i wanted
but all i could think of was last summer
and the one before that...
 
should've known better
all those old letters
i always wanted to read
woulda been nice if my old
old devices would've
just let me be...
 
how could i know?
 
see you drivin home
with that nicotine-filled smile
lay that down and roll with me now
air goes in and sound comes out now
and all i can think of is last summer
and the one before that...
 
should've known better
all those old letters
i always wanted to read
woulda been nice if my old
old devices would've
just let me be...
 
how could i know?


Chills
still.
feel like i'm getting ill
chills down my spine
like you (dew) on a windowsil

things they gone away!!!

still...

feel that no one can tell...
seems ive gotten ill
chills run down my spine
like you down a windowsil.

but still...

no one betters your life...
except yourself.
no one betters your life...
except yourself!!!


RUN THRU SINGLE

Breathin
got a handful of skin and two ways to rub it
a head fulla water and oh man, a bucket

breathin'....
after dark

the air was cold, my mouth was dry
miles a water and i'm cut and dry...

(almost sounds like)
eatin'....
after dark


...sure could use some Jostaffeine...


ELIZABETHTOWN SOUNDTRACK

Where To Begin
Up and up and up I climb,
When I came up I was so far behind,
My head takes a lickin',
But my heart keeps on tickin,
Just the same.
 
Always startin' over but somehow,
I always know where to begin.
 
Round and round and round I ride,
And just when I looked I hadn't even began,
To feel the effect,
A cool, dark fever,
On the brain.
 
That feelin' takin' over,
Like a holy rollercoaster,
To the grave.
 
How can I await the day?
And last the night I'm here to see?
How do I await the mother lode?
 
It's the art of feeling naked in your clothes.
 
Again, again, again I tried,
That's how I knew I would never be denied,
That face in the mirror,
Who could it be? It was my own.
 
That cool, dark figure,
That's when I knew I was alone.
 
On and on and on I drive,
When will I know I have finally arrived?
So far I've gone, so far to go,
It never ends.
 
Always starting over but somehow I always know where to begin,
Always starting over but somehow I always know where to begin,
Always starting over but somehow I always know where to begin.


Same In Any Language
written by Nancy Wilson/Cameron Crowe
Sometime ago I met a Navajo,
In a parking lot in Tokyo,
He said everything wordlessly,
Wonderlust in my eyes he did see,
Oh yeah,
Oh oh yeah.
 
Those postcards I sent to Birmingham,
All the way from those windows of Amsterdam,
I copped a gram from Dappersan
Just a four letter man in another jam,
Oh yeah,
Oh oh yeah.
 
It's the same in any language,
A brother is a brother if thereís one thing I know,
It's the same in any language,
Wherever you go.
 
Oooo yeah
 
I ran out of Jack in Tripoli,
Oh those freedom fighters they were good to me,
They asked me all about Tennessee,
And on one thing we all did agree,
Ooh yeah,
Yeah oh oh yeah.
 
Chorus
 
Wherever you go,
Where are you going, to?
Oh oh no no no no,
Where are you going, to?
Where you going to?
 
Everything is...
Say say say say say where are you going, to?
So where are you going, to?
I say where are you going?
Hoo hoo yeah.


OTHER

Lil' Billy
we were partyin down
one saturday night
Billy walks up to me
says its time to fight

See me and the boy.
were bein all loud
bein an asshole
heís interrupting  the crowd
        
so a friend walks up to me
says "make that billy bleed
me and my girl are gettin sick
you better make him leave or we gonna quit"
                            
oh billy billy billy
when you gonna learn?
that a stupid fuck like you
you only gonna burn
 
you gotta lotta nerve boy
you gotta lotta gull
To come into my house
Really fuck things (?)
 
you gotta lotta nerve boy
you gotta lotta guts
if i was seventeeeeen
i'd really fuck you up
                                  
oh billy billy billy
when you gonna learn?
that a stupid fuck like you                      
you only gonna burn

See how people they change
People they grow up
People they do things
I ain't speaking of          

But the greatest thing  
I ever ever saw

To see you burn!!!


I Can't Wait
livin in these continental
united states i fall
in with the sentimental
lovers who want it all
they make all their faces pretty
they take every stride tall
but i just want to get back to my city
in no time...i'll have them all  
  
but i can't wait
ohh i can't wait  
i can't wait anymore
but i can't wait  
no i can't wait
i can't wait anymore  
 
movements that make me shiver  
knowin that thereís no pause  
wonderin if i deliver
to someone who's had it all  
knowin that there's no way  
to get back if i should stray
so i guess i'll give the old boys a call...  
and i'll act like i don't know you at all...  
  
but i can't wait
ohh i can't wait  
i can't wait anymore
but i can't wait
no i can't wait
i can't wait anymore


Come Closer (Xmas Style)
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


Wonderful (The Way I Feel)
Chorus:
I feel so wonderful
Wonderful
Wonderful the way I feel
(X2)

It matters to me
Took a long time to get here
If it would have been easy
I would not have cared

Like a tropical forest
Like a cop on the beat
When all is in order
You get lost in the heat


Chorus

Doesnít matter to me
I could take it or leave it
I could learn from way back when
And still live right now

With the sun on my shoulders
And the wind at my back
I will never grow older
At least not in my mind


Chorus

Iím going where there ainít no fear
Iím going where the spirit is near
Iím going where the living is easy
And the people are kind
A new state of mind
Iím going where there ainít no disease
Iím going where there ainít no police
Iím going where there ainít no need
To escape from what is
Only spirits at ease



Dear Wife
sweet, sweet, dear where are you?
I am out here somewhere working through the days
I imagine you are livin life,
but I must explain..

dear wife, I miss you always
aint it strange how quickly things can change.

I'll be out here wanting you
you'll be out there wanting me
and I'll be back there runnin'?
you'll, you'll be in here lovin me.

(solo)

sweet, sweet, dear how are ya?
well the nail of your kindness hits my brain.
when you pounded it in with such violence,
I must exclaim..

dear wife I love you always
aint it great how quickly things can change

I'll be out here wanting you
you'll be out there wanting me
and I'll be back there runnin'?
you'll, you'll be in here lovin me

I'll be out here wanting you
you'll be out there wanting me
and I'll be back there runnin'?
you'll, you'll be in here lovin me
You'll be in here lovin me


SOAKY SOAKY
Every day

Like It Should
I donít ever think that I could
Find another thing thatís so good
True lifeís often a mystery
But the answers never seem so clear to me

If I promise to listen while you play
Iíd just be kidding myself once again
When youíve ridden a ride thatís this good
The riders donít feel like they should

Sometimes I lay on my side
Picture someone I know Iíll ???
Sometimes life donít work like it should
Sometimes I wonder how Iíve had it so good
Sometimes life donít work like it should
Sometimes I wonder how Iíve had it so good


Churches Banks and Bars
How do I Ė I   say?
How do I say
Words, I donít know, I donít have them yet
But someday the meaning began

Now I know what to say
I always say
I know I got whatís only began
And Iíll thank ya to stop askin after this
  A lonely day  X 3
  A lonely day  
  A lonely day  

I love the way you felt, baby
That was way back when
The building of time began
A time Iíll never forget
  A lonely day  X 3
  A lonely day  
  A lonely day  


friends again

It was so natural
that perfect feeling inside
so ergonomical
your comfort was my pride

then we woke up
on the wrong side of bed
started caring about what other people said
and now it seems
im letting go of my dreams
but you know what this business partner needs
so lets be friends again
i'm tired of feeling this way
lets be friends again
I cant do it without you babe

do you remember
the first night we met
that was a feeling
i never can forget

right into your heart
??
darkness crept into your heart
and wouldnt you know

then we woke up
on the wrong side of bed
started caring about what other people said
and now it seems
i'm letting go of my dreams
lets be friends again
im tired of feeling this way
lets be friends again
I can't do it without you babe

friends again
friends again

I'm digging, digging deep in myself, but who needs a shovel when you have a little boy like mine.

I have a lot of these on my tabs site.  can't guarantee accuracy but many of them were taken from postings on this site over the years, some of them I did myself.  I can post them here at some point but not tonight.  

http://mmjtabs.50megs.com/

btw, I know what I have for chills is wrong but those lyrics are written in the at dawn linear notes even if you didn't get the demos cd along with it.  My copy is buried in a box in my garage.  if someone has those linear notes readily available and could post the lyrics, that would be nice for the purposes of this thread and my tabs site.

Here's a couple of the ones i've done the most for figuring out. There's a couple more that i know, but it's intensely late.


Holy

don't forget which way it goes
i could be the one to show you that
life is more than scenery
won't you please you please a place for me

i could prove that bitch is holy
but it would be the one that told me that
life is not pure misery
will you please you please a place for me

wanted to see your holy mouth(laugh/vow)
wanted to feel the air come out
dirty thoughts occured to me that
i coulda had em if i wanted
but all i could think of was last summer
and the one before that...

should've known better
all those old letters
i always wanted to read
woulda been nice if my old
old devices would've
just let me be...

how could i know?

see you drivin home
with that nicotine-filled smile
lay that down and roll with me now
air goes in and sound comes out now
and all i can think of is last summer
and the one before that...

should've known better
all those old letters
i always wanted to read
woulda been nice if my old
old devices would've
just let me be...

how could i know?
The river is moving. The blackbird must be flying.

dylan, i can just cut paste from your site to save a step no?


yeah that's fine.  go for it and save me the work!  

It'd be neat to link the original topics where these lyrics were discussed.  like in the case of cobra there were probably five attempts at the lyrics.  the one i have on my site is the one I thought was most accurate.  I don't think it was ec's though.  sorry, megan.

Where To Begin

Up and up and up I climb,
When I came up I was so far behind,
My head takes a lickin',
But my heart keeps on tickin,
Just the same.

Always startin' over but somehow,
I always know where to begin.

Round and round and round I ride,
And just when I looked I hadn't even began,
To feel the effect,
A cool, dark fever,
On the brain.

That feelin' takin' over,
Like a holy rollercoaster,
To the grave.

How can I await the day?
And last the night I'm here to see?
How do I await the mother lode?

It's the art of feeling naked in your clothes.

Again, again, again I tried,
That's how I knew I would never be denied,
That face in the mirror,
Who could it be? It was my own.

That cool, dark figure,
That's when I knew I was alone.

On and on and on I drive,
When will I know I have finally arrived?
So far I've gone, so far to go,
It never ends.

Always starting over but somehow I always know where to begin,
Always starting over but somehow I always know where to begin,
Always starting over but somehow I always know where to begin.

Holy

don't forget which way it goes
i could be the one to show you that
life is more than scenery
won't you please you please a place for me

i could prove that bitch is holy
but it would be the one that told me that
life is not pure misery
will you please you please a place for me




Tonight I Wanna Celebrate With You

Tonight i wanna celebrate with you
just forget now and let's begin anew
cuz in this land of broken dreams
where money means most everything
i think i need to celebrate with you

tonight i wanna celebrate with you
troubles of today are finally through
the fireworks go off tonight
it'll be just like the 4th of July
and all because I celebrate with you

and they say:
God bless...
God bless the US



That Someone Else Was You
(with possible discrepancies)

have you ever seen yourself
through the eyes of someone else
only to find that someone else was you?

wish it weren't so complicated
but it'll have to do

found you on the ground in front of the elevator door
Beechwood (each one?) has a sound escape
and love light from the radio (let me know if anyone hears this differently, it's not extremely distinct)
knew that you were feelin bad
knew that I weren't feelin good
matted hair, unconscious sighs
and Levi's on your big white thighs
The river is moving. The blackbird must be flying.

I Will Be There When you Die intro (from "Sunrides" version)

sunrides and the girls scream
walk high on the i-beam
your lovely soul
but only God knows it so
don't forget to hold your head when you let go...

Weeks Go By Like Days

Forever...that's how long it would take
forever...not as long as you'd think (as a day?)

Long is the road
I have always been told
how lonely can one boy be?
Long is the road
i have always been told
how long can one man wait?

Forever...

Forever...that's how long I would wait
forever...not as long as you'd think

long is the road i have always been told
how lonely can one boy be?
long is the road i have always been told
how long can one man wait?

Forever...



What Will I Do?

woah, what will I do
when nothin happens to me?
oh, all my life is runnin around like machinery...

tuggin and pullin my coat
tuggin and pullin:
"come on, get up!
get up and get ready to go!"


I Just Wanted To Be Your Friend

Even though I was really friendly
I just wanted to be your friend
even though there's no happy endings
i just wanted it to end
(repeat)

Go, I've had enough...

Gone, gone, gone...



The river is moving. The blackbird must be flying.

Sweetheart

Slowly you strolled over to where I sit
You strayed from Cristos,
but now Iím one with him.
 
Sweetheart, lover, words you'd use for me  
I work to get to you forever  
To melt you into me  
 
ahhhhh  
 
Slowly i strolled over where you sit.  
It took so long, now Iím into it.  
 
Sweetheart, lover I wanted you before  
But when the heart beats next to me  
I want it even more

Same in Any Language

Sometime ago I met a Navajo,
In a parking lot in Tokyo,
He said everything wordlessly,
Wonderlust in my eyes he did see,
Oh yeah,
Oh oh yeah.

Those postcards I sent to Birmingham,
All the way from those windows of Amsterdam,
I copped a gram from Dappersan
Just to fall at her man in another jam,
Oh yeah,
Oh oh yeah.

It's the same in any language,
A brother is a brother if thereís one thing I know,
It's the same in any language,
Wherever you go.

Oooo yeah

I ran out of Jack in Tripoli,
Oh those freedom fighters they were good to me,
They asked me all about Tennessee,
And on one thing we all did agree,
Ooh yeah,
Yeah oh oh yeah.

Chorus

Wherever you go,
Where are you going, to?
Oh oh no no no no,
Where are you going, to?
Where you going to?

Everything is...
Say say say say say where are you going, to?
So where are you going, to?
I say where are you going?
Hoo hoo yeah.

Can 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.

Go to Music Section (of website, not forum) and click on the cover of the Split EP

Cobra 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 WON'T CRY

She ain't gonna love me 'till I'm gone...
She ain't gonna make a happy home...
Love me 'till I'm dead...
Scratch 'em 'till I bled...
I was with you then, now I'm starting again.

I won't cry. (I won't cry.)
I won't say goodbye... (Won't say Goodbye.)
I won't cry.
I was with you then, now I'm starting again.

She ain't gonna love me 'till I'm gone...
She ain't gonna build a happy home...
Love me 'till I'm dead...
Scratch 'em 'till I bled...
I was with you then, now I'm starting again.

I won't cry. (I won't cry.)
I won't say goodbye... (Won't say Goodbye.)
I won't cry.
I was with you then, now I'm starting again.

Yeah, yeah! Hell yeah.





ps. Tom 'Someone else was you' is spot-on, brother.
