infinite loop

 

i'm in an infinite loop

i'm in an infinite loop

i'm in an infinite

i'm in an infinite

i'm in an infinite loop...

 

this all happened once before

this all happened once before

and i ain't learned nothin'

but I love you more than words can say

i love you much more than words can say

and that's gotta count for somethin'

it's gotta count for somethin'

 

but i'm in an infinite loop...

 

i love just 'bout everything about you

even the things that i don't understand

and i ain't got any cause to doubt you

no i don't doubt you

 

but i'm in an infinite loop...

 

this all happened some other day

who the hell are you anyway

 

but i'm in an infinite loop...

 

let's break the cycle

let's break the cycle...

let's break the cycle...

let's break the cycle...

blue dress

 

she was wearing a blue dress

and that's what i remember best

she was wearing a blue dress

and that's what i remember best

 

practical in design

functional and yet sublime

at times when i remember best

i think of her and her blue dress

 

she was wearing a blue dress

and that's what I remember best...

 

sometimes

i don't understand these scenes

that play in my mind

and though i won't feel the warmth of her caress

i'll think of her and her blue dress

 

she was wearing a blue dress

and that's what i remember best...

 

it always seemed a bit unfair

the way that she'd let down her hair

but thoughts like this are put to rest

when i think of her and her blue dress

 

she was wearing a blue dress

and that's what i remember best...

 

you know i still recall the time

when i looked deep into her eyes

but i remember more what happened next

when i saw her in a blue dress

 

sometimes it seems

like she was made just for me

but there are times when i remember best

when i think of her and her blue dress

 

she was wearing a blue dress

and that's what i remember best...

 

simple practical

effortlessly magical

at times when i remember best

i think of her and her blue dress

 

there are times

when thinking of her

leaves a pain in my chest

but there are times when i remember best

and i'll think of her and her blue dress...

folk music

 

what's the folk music gonna sound like?

what 's the folk music gonna sound like?

 

maybe some politicians have put a tax on the oxygen

or someone's just been sentenced there for bootlegging railroad gin

 

what's the folk music gonna sound like?

what's the folk music gonna sound like?

 

on some distant planet do you think the people there have had it?

on some distant planet do you think the people there have had it?

 

what's the folk music gonna sound like?

what's the folk music gonna sound like?

 

maybe someone's true love died when he was out in the asteroid mines

maybe someone's true love died when he was out in the asteroid mines...

 

what's the folk music gonna sound like?

what's the folk music gonna sound like?

romantic composer

 

i am a romantic composer

in a dream of how it feels to be

in the nineteenth century

 

i am a romantic composer

i am a romantic composer

and it's getting hard to keep my composure

i am a romantic composer

 

now i'm standing in the concert hall

waiting for my curtain call

and it's getting hard to keep my composure

i am a romantic composer

 

and i know i should feel a sense of elation

but i don't hear the standing ovation

and it's getting hard to keep my composure

i am a romantic composer

 

and there's a woman i could love i guess

but i hear she is a baroness

and it's getting hard to keep my composure

i am a romantic composer

 

and i guess you could say

i know how it might feel to be

alive in the early nineteenth century

and it's getting hard to keep my composure

i am a romantic composer...

one of four players

 

i'm just one of four players

in a band that's lost its man

i'm just one of four players

in a band that's lost its man

where did he go?

time and time i've asked this question

and sometimes i think i know

but it's much too painful to mention

 

i'm just one of four players

in a band that's lost its vision

i'm just one of four players

in a band that's lost its precision

where did it go?

time and time i've asked this question

and sometimes i think i know

but it's much too painful to mention

 

i'm just one of four players

in a band that's lost its persistence

i'm just one of four players

in a band that's lost its insistence

where did it go?

time and time i've asked this question

and sometimes i think i know...

 

i'm just one of four players

in a band that's lost its man...

where did it go?

it's so hard to understand...

adelaide

 

adelaide

i'm livin' my life for adelaide

adelaide

i'm livin' my life for adelaide...

 

world does you harm you use a cold compress

and before you're born i've crowned you empress

adelaide

i'm living my life for adelaide...

 

words can warm like a baby's first breath

and you know you've given life to this shadow of death

adelaide

words can do harm but sometimes words can replenish

words can do harm but sometimes words can replenish

 

adelaide

i'm livin' my life for adelaide...

 

compass points north south east or west

when you find some direction

you know you've gotta follow

the best that you can

there's somethin' special in a name

so i'm takin' the next train

to adelaide

 

i'm livin' my life for adelaide...

the rest of my life for adelaide

another chance

 

you've got another chance

you've got another chance

you've got another chance

you've got another chance

 

you've tried so hard

so no one can understand

why you give yourself a life sentence

 

cause you've got another chance...

 

you've come so far

people can change

 

people can't change right away

but people can change

if people can change

 

people can't change right away

but people can change

if people can change

 

they're saying things that you just can't say

cause people can't change, people can't change

 

they've got you thinkin' there's no other way

cause people can't change, people can't change

 

people can't change right away

but people can change if people can change...

 

i know you'll really want to prove me wrong

cause people can't change, people can't change

 

i know you'll curse me

cause i wrote this song

cause people can't change, people can't change

 

people can't change right away

but people can change if people can change...

 

there's a darkness and it's here to stay

cause people can't change, people can't change

 

you say you've always kind of felt this way

yeah people can't change, people can't change

 

people can't change right away

but people can change if people can change...

 

sometimes i miss the people that i used to know

sometimes i miss the people that i used to know

 

people can't change right away

but people can change if people can change...

i'm learning a language

i'm learning a language
