Counting Crows





Step out the front door like a ghost
into the fog where no one notices
the contrast of white on white.

And in betweem the moon and you
the angels get a better view
of the crumbling difference between wrong and right.

Round Here
August and Everything After






I walk in the air between the rain
through myself and back again.
Where? I don't know.

Round Here
August and Everything After






She's suddenly beautiful

Mr. Jones
August and Everything After






I want to be a lion
Everybody wants to pass as cats
We all want to be big big stars but we got different reasons for that.
Believe in me because I don't believe in anything
and I want to be someone to believe

Mr. Jones
August and Everything After






Asleep in perfect blue buildings
Beside the green apple sea
Gonna get me a little oblivion
Try to keep myself away from me

Perfect Blue Buildings
August and Everything After






Everytime she sneezes I believe it's love.

Anna Begins
August and Everything After






She's talking in her sleep
It's keeping me awake and Anna begins to toss and turn
And every word is nonsense but I understand and
Oh lord, I'm not ready for this sort of thing

Anna Begins
August and Everything After






It seems night endlessly begins and ends
After all the dreaming I come home again...

Rain King
August and Everything After






Love is like a ghost train howling on the radio
"Remember everything." she said, "when only memory remains."

Ghost Train
August and Everything After






I dreamt I saw you walking up a hillside in the snow
Casting shadows on the winter sky as you stood there counting crows.

A Murder of One
August and Everything After






I walk along the hillsides
In the summer 'neath the sunshine
I am feathered by the moonlight falling down on me

A Murder of One
August and Everything After






I wanna be the last thing you hear when you're falling alseep.

Catapult
Recovering The Satellites






Little angels hang above my head and read me like an open book
Suck my blood, break my nerve, offer me their arms

Angel of the Silences
Recovering The Satellites






Daylight fading
Come and waste another year
All the anger and the eloquence are bleeding into fear
Moonlight creeping around the corners of my lawn
When we see the early signs of daylight's fading
We leave just before it's gone.

Daylight Fading
Recovering The Satellites






We couldn't all be cowboys
So some of us are clowns

Goodnight Elisabeth
Recovering The Satellites






I hope that everybody can find a little flame
Me, I say my prayers
Then I just light myself on fire
And I walk out on the wire once again

Goodnight Elisabeth
Recovering The Satellites






All these wasted dreams
Waiting for the sun to open up my heart to anyone
Bring me some rain
Because I'm dying and I can't get this damn thing closed again

Children in Bloom
Recovering The Satellites






Have you seen me lately?

Have you seen me lately?
Recovering The Satellites






Margery's wingspan's all feathers and coke cans, and
TV dinners and letters she won't send, and
Every race night is shot through with sunlight
Trying to hit the big one one last time tonight for...
Drunken fathers and stupid mothers and
Boys who can't tell one girl from another
So she takes her pills
Careful and round
One of these days she's gonne throw the whole bottle down.

Another Horsedreamer's Blues
Recovering The Satellites






She sees shooting stars and comet tails
She's got heaven in her eyes
She says I don't need to be an angel
But I'm nothing if I'm not this high

Recovering The Satellites
Recovering The Satellites






The smell of hospitals in winter
And the feeling that it's all a lot of oysters, but no pearls
All at once you look across a crowded room
To see the way that light attached to a girl

A Long December
Recovering The Satellites






Someday
I'm gonna stay
But not today

Walkaways
Recovering The Satellites






If you've never stared off into the distance, then your life is a shame
And though I'll never forget your face
Sometimes I can't remember my name

Mrs. Potter's Lullaby
This Desert Life






When I see you a blanket of stars covers me in my bed

Mrs. Potter's Lullaby
This Desert Life






We drove out to the desert just to lie down beneath this bowl of stars
We stand up at the Palace like it's the last of the great Pioneertown bars
We shout out these songs against the clang of electric guitars
You can see a million miles tonight
But you can't get very far

Mrs. Potter's Lullaby
This Desert Life






Things are getting worse but I feel a lot better
And that's all that really matters to me

Amy Hit The Atmosphere
This Desert Life






All my friends and lovers shine like the sun
I just turn and walk away
One way or another
I'm not coming undone
I'm just waiting for the day

All My Friends
This Desert Life






You see yourself descending from a building to the ground
You watch the sky receding
You spin to see the traffic rising up
And it's so quiet

I Wish I Was A Girl
This Desert Life






For all the things I'm losing
I might as well resign myself to try and make change
Well, I'm going down to Hollywood
They're gonna make a movie from the things that they find
Crawling around my brain

I Wish I Was A Girl
This Desert Life
