Like Little Willie John Lyrics

Artist : LANEGAN, MARK
Album : Bubblegum

There was nothing I could do
Where's Willie John?
Dead so long
Born to fall, nothing at all
Who's gonna grieve
When you're gone?
I once believed
I wouldn't bleed
I seen all these good looking women
While I'm getting off the plane
Remember where my baby is
Start thinkin' 'bout my baby
All she ever knew was trouble
And for much I was to blame
But when I heard the news that night
I went down like a satellite
And when my world stood still that night
I dropped like a satellite
She never knew how much I loved her
She never knew how much I cared
I thought I'd get back to my special one
I thought I'd get on a lucky run
I said I'd get back to my special one
I said I'd get on a lucky run
God damn
Where's Willie John?
Dead so long
Born to fall, like nothing at all
Now who's gonna grieve
When you're gone?
I once believed I'd never bleed
But lord I'm all alone tonight
Don't the sun love it's satellite?
Lord I'm all alone tonight
Don't the sun love it's satellite?
I don't know
Seein' all these good looking women
And remember where my baby is
Start thinkin' 'bout my baby
Remember where my baby is
Start me thinkin' 'bout my baby
Where's my baby?

Can't Come Down Lyrics

Artist : LANEGAN, MARK
Album : Bubblegum

Don't give a damn for money
Never did I give a damn for gold
Tell me little doll, talk some sweet nothing
A river runs deep and cold
Don't know why but it keeps running
Don't know why I can't come down
Moses has stood on the mountain
Devil made it thunder and rain
Girl I ain't afraid of temptation
No I ain't afraid of some pain
Watchin' little doll she just come runnin'
Running straight away
Straight to me I got sweet nothing
And only myself to blame
I don't know why I just keep running
Don't know why I can't come down
Walk, don't you walk on me
Don't you step don't you step on me
Don't you walk don't walk on me
Don't you step on me
Don't have no thing for money
Got no jones for gold
All I got today is some sweet nothing
Nothing to take away
Don't know why I just keep running
Don't know why I can't come down
Don't know why - somebody
Somebody hears today
Don't know why, sweet nothing
Nothing to take away
No I ain't afraid of temptation
No ain't afraid of some pain
No ain't afraid of some pain
Somebody, somebody
Somebody, can't come down
Somebody, can't come down
Can't come down
Somebody, can't come down
can't come down...

Morning Glory Wine Lyrics

Artist : LANEGAN, MARK
Album : Bubblegum

On the first time in love
Was electrocution
But I fell out on the down
Blind with injection
Strawberries, wake or naked
Out here you're alone
These streets get very cold, you should know
Yeah and don't I know
Are we gonna be judged
Judged on these lonely deeds
Are we gonna cry, yeah
Are we gonna freeze
Morning glory wine
Good people don't drink it
So I'm alone not thinking, please
How you thrill me love
How you kill me love
Like electrocution
Monday's all that's lost to love
Tuesday shakes and plead
Friday comes and calls your bluff
Sunday's on her knees
It's how you do me love
If you knew me love
There ain't no one to turn to
'Cause it's hard when you're on your own
And you lost your way home
Morning glory wine
Good people don't drink it
So on my own not thinking, please
It's how you knew me love
It's how you do me love
Like electrocution
It's like electrocution
Morning glory wine
Good people don't drink it
When you're on you're own
You lost your way home
There ain't nobody baby
Nobody to turn to
I need somebody
Somebody to turn to
Somebody baby
Someone to turn to
Morning high
Morning glory wine
There ain't nobody baby
I need someone to turn to
I need somebody
Wanna get high
I wanna get high
Need somebody to turn to

Head Lyrics

Artist : LANEGAN, MARK
Album : Bubblegum

So sad the girl I had
Lost her head and it went bad
Blue her two eyes they were dead
Mirror mine and see she said
One of these mornings
I don't know her
One of these mornings I think I owe her
Head
Once she signed a piece of my mind
Girlie scenes and gasoline
Porno pony she did ride
Forsaken long lost limousine
I hear her talkin'
I like to hear her talkin'
See her walkin'
I like to watch watch her come walkin'
Head
Head
She lost it and man did it get bad
Lazy eyes were dead
Mirror mine and see she said
Once she drew a picture
Stuck it in my pocket
Find somewhere to reach her
'Cause she let me rock it
See her walkin'
I like to watch, watch her come walkin'
Head

Driving Death Valley Blues Lyrics

Artist : LANEGAN, MARK
Album : Bubblegum

Well I'm so tired of driving but here comes the highway
Don't wanna go cold turkey
Ride with me Jesus so high on the mainline
It's the last time I'll drive Death Valley
Remember her kiss is like kerosene
The rest of her only a memory
Don't feel so bad 'cause you made me
A picture so clear
A picture so clear that it's crystalline
Better run to the doctor, girl, run to the medicine
Don't wanna go cold turkey
I'll be your Napoleon be your crippled Alexander, but
Don't wanna go up the country
Shame there's nothing to hang it on
Except for this wreck that you made of me
A blackbird singin' a morning song, sing along
Sing to the end of a century
Sing it
Well I can't stand the thought of many more miles, but
I don't wanna go cold turkey
Here comes the highway can't you see what it made me
It's the last time I'll drive Death Valley
Remember her kiss is a kerosene
The exile lives in a memory
A scarecrow singin' a morning song, sing along
Sing to the end of a century
Are you still with me Jesus so high on the mainline
Don't let me go up the country
Girl better run, better run for the medicine
Don't let me go cold turkey
Don't let me go cold turkey
Don't wanna go

Out Of Nowhere Lyrics

Artist : LANEGAN, MARK
Album : Bubblegum

As it begins so too it ends
Crawls to a stop and starts again
Those highlights you've forced to shine
Show me my way through wilderness
And someday far from here I'll send a kiss
Out of nowhere
At times you see a ghost down on the street
Walks the hallway knocking door to door
Where are you from night till 9am
Only a dark skinned Jesus knows
Why suddenly your room is turnin' cold
Cold is nowhere
And as it ends so it begins
Crawls to a stop and starts again
Those highlights you've made are mine
Show me my way through wilderness
To someone who's blind I'll send a kiss
Out of nowhere

Deus Ibi Est Lyrics

Artist : LANEGAN, MARK
Album : Ballad Of The Broken Seas

Against my will to these sad shores, an unknown force has drawn me
Bound unto a future shaped by ancestors before me
Day on day I march the beat to someone else's drum
I have searched far foreign lands there's nowhere left to run

Impending storm rise up rise up, oh demons I shall shame you
Look down the barrel of my gun and one by one I'll name you
Day on day my brothers leave go marching off to war
Yet we never understand for what we're fighting for

Ubi caritas et amor
(Where there is tender care and love)
Ubi caritas
(Where there is tender care)
Deus ibi est
(God is present)

Worldly desires and worldly gains designed for worldly men
I'm a master of the heart with ears and hands to lend
Soldiers come and soldiers go some changed by love for thee
A circle in the chain of life all fighting to be free

Ubi caritas et amor
(Where there is tender care and love)
Ubi caritas
(Where there is tender care)
Deus ibi est
(God is present)

Ubi caritas et amor
(Where there is tender care and love)
Ubi caritas
(Where there is tender care)
Deus ibi est
(God is present)

So come my lord and we shall dance to God's own private drum
Sweet Jesus and the holy vine the afterlife to come
Day on day I march the the beat to someone else's drum
I have searched far foreign lands there's nowhere left to run

Ubi caritas et amor
(Where there is tender care and love)
Ubi caritas
(Where there is tender care)
Deus ibi est
(God is present)

Black Mountain Lyrics

Artist : LANEGAN, MARK
Album : Ballad Of The Broken Seas

I met a man whom I'll never doubt
Flew into the sun, our bodies on fire
Betrothed to a mate, pray it is not so
Invoke father time, then he let her go

Lie true lie true lie true lie true
Lie true lie true lie true lie true
Lie true lie true lie true lie true
Lie true lie true lie true lie true

I know a dog much blacker than night
Who lives in a house where nothing is right
All sorrow and loving riches at bay
All watching a few to the [?]

Lie true lie true lie true lie true
Lie true lie true lie true lie true
Lie true lie true lie true lie true
Lie true lie true lie true lie true

Some dream of coins or some beauty's find
But I want the truth while I serve my time
Most complex and pain, I'd share it with you
The moon looks bright, so come say I'll do

Lie true lie true lie true lie true
Lie true lie true lie true lie true
Lie true lie true lie true lie true
Lie true lie true lie true lie true

The False Husband Lyrics

Artist : LANEGAN, MARK
Album : Ballad Of The Broken Seas

Where have you been, my darling
Where have you been, my friend
Where have you been, my darling
Where have you been, my friend

A crow flew past my window sill
Stole me away from you until
You change your heart or change your will
Aren't you darling

Where have you been, my darling
Where have you been, my friend
Where have you been, my darling
Where have you been, my friend

And all the while that you would burn
Your tongue was working overtime
Love foregone and life's so good
Aren't you darling

In my words I cherry picked
Something fought and died today
With all our words I care not say
I need you darling

I've been chasing up loftier mountains
Be it against my will
You keep telling me “don't get no higher”
But I'll be higher still

Where have you been, my darling
Where have you been, my friend

Ballad Of The Broken Seas Lyrics

Artist : LANEGAN, MARK
Album : Ballad Of The Broken Seas

I bring you a tale of the broken seas
And I'm drowning in whisky and beer
My doctor reports if I don't stop soon
I'll drown in an ocean of tears

I looked to you and saw my desire
Went from the frying pan into the fire
Surrendered to sorrow and was undone
Now I'm praying that it won't be long

We fucked up the sun into kingdom come
You are under my blood and my skin
Living life at each other's throats
In the gilded sailboat of sin

Ours was an ocean to swim around in
Ours was an ocean I should have drowned in
My doctor reports that we must be strong
But I'm praying that it won't be long

Revolver Lyrics

Artist : LANEGAN, MARK
Album : Ballad Of The Broken Seas

Now after all,
Don't feel like nothing.
Like walking away,
Like a mouth full of rain.

At twelve o'clock
The bell starts ringing,
A dog starts barking
And you're still missing.

Still missing something
You've never known what it was.

And I'm not one for thinking twice,
But I know this much is true.
The earth will turn, the pot'll burn
And you are my revolver.

Just waking up,
Some dogs start barking,
A bell starts ringing
And you're still missing.

And after all,
Don't you feel like nothing.
Like walking away
Like a mouth full of rain.

I'm holding on
'Cause you're my revolver
And I dreamed of ending
And flying away...

Ramblin' Man Lyrics

Artist : LANEGAN, MARK
Album : Ballad Of The Broken Seas

I can settle down
And be doing just fine
Till I hear an old freight
Going down the line

Then I hurry straight
Home and pack
And if I didn't go
I believe I'd blow my stack

I love you baby
But you must understand
When the Lord made me
He made a ramblin' man

Some folks may say (Got my loving arms to keep you warm)
That I'm no good (In the kitchen cooking up a storm)
That I wouldn't settle (If uncle tells me stay away from you)
Down if I could (That is something I could never do)

But when that open road (You're my baby, you're my loving man)
Starts calling me (When you're in trouble, do the best you can)
There's something over the hill (I'm naked daddy just for you)
That I've gotta see (Force of nature and you're coming through)

Sometimes it's hard (Loving you, going hot and cold)
But you gotta understand (Loving you, getting good and soaked)
When the Lord made me (How I know you hate to see me cry)
He made a ramblin' man (Happens every time I say goodbye)

I love to see (What's the use, you poor seductive man)
The towns passing by (Don't get feelings and you'll understand)
And to ride these rails (Lying on somebody just like me)
'Neath God's blue skies (Got you dancing to my melody)

Let me travel this land (God knows how I need your loving arms)
From the mountains to the sea (If you lose me baby, telephone)
Cause that's the life (Try to pieces, stay away from harm)
I believe He meant for me (You're my baby though you do me wrong)

And when I'm gone (Love your nature, though I walk the line)
And at my grave you stand (Loving dreams, you're just a waste of time)
Just say God's called (Baby please don't stay away too long)
Home his ramblin' man (Fire's burning for when you get home)

(Do You Wanna) Come Walk With Me? Lyrics

Artist : LANEGAN, MARK
Album : Ballad Of The Broken Seas

Little girl have I told you
How you light up my life
Come and lay down beside me
Come and thrill me tonight
Do you wanna?

I'm not saying I love you
I won't say I'll be true
There's a crimson bird flying
When I go down on you

I'm so weary and lonesome
And it's cold in the night
When the path to your doorway
Is a pathway of light

Do you wanna come walk with me?
Do you wanna come walk with me?
If you do baby say it now
Though we'll both wonder anyhow

Do you wanna come walk with me?
Do you wanna come walk with me?
Do you wanna?

Little girl have I told you
You're my guiding north star
And my love travels with you
Wherever you are

From the mountains to the valley
Leave the light on for me
From Virginia to Alaska
From sea to shining sea

Do you wanna come walk with me?
Do you wanna come walk with me?
If you do baby say it now
Though we'll both wonder anyhow

Do you wanna come walk with me?
Do you wanna come walk with me?
Do you wanna?

Saturday's Gone Lyrics

Artist : LANEGAN, MARK
Album : Ballad Of The Broken Seas

If you're kind for dusty highways and such
Be alright to look her up
The faded priestess of the highways and crutch
Calling when you're down on luck
By the disused railroad road station you go
To the house of dirty pearl
Her existential situation you know
She is not like other girls

She may ask you, “Do you believe?”
You can't stay, though you'll never leave

See the sapphire in the skylines so blue
See the diamond in the dirt
When you think the subject won't turn to you
She got demons up her skirt
It isn't sure of her reflection at all
Is seduced by all things past
A pleasure-seeker of dejection
Gazing into her looking glass

She may ask you what you believe
But the mirror doesn't see me

Saturday's gone, saturday's gone
Saturday's gone, saturday's gone

She may ask you, “Do you believe?”
You can't stay, though you'll never leave

Saturday's gone, saturday's gone
Saturday's gone, saturday's gone

Now a sundown comes, a new day for her
Tired of dress and leave the ground
You'd be a fool to ask her to lift you up
Why go up when you go down?
If you should tire of ties that bind you
Filmed on fever leaves so fast
You got trouble far behind you
Well knows nothing's made to last

Hear how God sees a lion roar
Watch the serpent crossing the floor

Saturday's gone, saturday's gone...

Honey Child What Can I Do? Lyrics

Artist : LANEGAN, MARK
Album : Ballad Of The Broken Seas

Wishin', hopin', for that old familiar feeling
That takes you miles above, yeah it's called love
Would you do it for me
'Cause I'm feelin' lonely

Prayin', hopin', and I leave the door wide open
I see you and you catch your spill
But come and sit by me
'Cause I'm feelin' lonely

Maybe I'm a stupid fool
Chasin' butterflies like you
On these days they seem so cruel
But honey, child what can i do

Maybe I'm a stupid fool
Chasin' butterflies like you
On these days they seem so cruel
But honey, child what can I do

Honey, child what can I do

The Circus Is Leaving Town Lyrics

Artist : LANEGAN, MARK
Album : Ballad Of The Broken Seas

The party's over now
So draw the curtains down
Your secret's safe to keep
Unzip your velvet gown
And let your hair hang loose
Kick off your satin shoes
Throw back the ida down
Farewell to Friday's clown

The circus is leaving town
Oh Ruby, roll your stockins down
Circus is leaving town
Oh Ruby, dry your eyes

Fix up something to heap
Still water still run deep
The dogs are barking now
Get back out on the street

The circus is leaving town
Oh Ruby, roll your stockins down
Circus is leaving town
So Ruby, dry your eyes

The party is over now
Stop howling at the moon
You need a different beat
You need a different tune

Remember that old song
We heard when we were young
Life was an empty page
The world would ride upon

Do you recall the meadow past
We sit and watch the hours pass
You were such a good girl then
Oh ruby dry your eyes

Circus is leaving town
Oh Ruby, roll your stockins down
Circus is leaving town
So Ruby, dry your eyes

You're searching when you walk
You're searching when you talk
You could make me believe
That the sun sets in the east
The sun sets in the east
The sun sets in the east

Seafaring Song Lyrics

Artist : LANEGAN, MARK
Album : Sunday At Devil Dirt

I have travelled the world around
Wandered far from home
Sailed the ocean in foreign skies
Still further to go
Back into my babies arms
From this world of woe
That was such a long long time ago

Captain hollered the Cabin Boy
Stared into the sun
Shadows waltzing so close behind
Ever far I run
Back into my babies arms
Safe from this world of woe
That was such a long long time ago

Sirens capture my trembling heart
What's to be will be
Moon is hidden, the deal is done
Spread your wings for me
Back into my babies arms
Rising soft and low
That was such a long long time ago

The Raven Lyrics

Artist : LANEGAN, MARK
Album : Sunday At Devil Dirt

And in the dawning of the day in late September
There came a weeping from outside my chamber door
Weary from fever I rose up looked out the elder
A Raven with a broken wing yet nothing more

I turn my head the once and bird become a damsel
With lips of cherry, ivory skin and lustrous hair
Open the doorway wide and smile for her to enter
Not in my lifetime seen a beast so rare

Sweet thighs of ruin how I loved her, and I loved her
She muttered low and helped me to her infant breasts
Deliverance was long and strong as god's my witness
Babylon burning sorrow known with each caress

And let the night in
For you were broken
Too ill to touch
Too much

And with the medal Eguinal had done their duty
The morning glory lying awoke with duly low
I breathed my last the day the warning bell was knelling
She smoothed her feathers down and flew back out my window

And let the night in
But you were broken
Too ill to touch
Too much

And let the night in
For you were broken
Too ill to touch
Too much

And let the night in
For you were broken
Too ill to touch
Too much

Salvation Lyrics

Artist : LANEGAN, MARK
Album : Sunday At Devil Dirt

Salvation, Salvation
I never really want it to believe
I always thought you flattered to deceive

Salvation, Salvation
My blood is flowing like the tide
And blood is thick and so's my own grey hide

Got to get up and moan
Got to get up and moan
Got to get up and moan
Got to get up and moan
And I went out in that bad old world to roam
And I was like a stranger coming home

Salvation, Salvation
I'm fortunes son and I took what I could get
I loved you dear and I never will forget

Salvation, Salvation
When my bridges burned all I saw was you
On the other side too good to be true

Got to get up and moan
Got to get up and moan
Got to get up and moan
Got to get up and moan
And I went out in that bad old world to roam
And I was like a stranger coming home
And I went out in that bad old world to roam
And I was like a stranger coming home

Who Built The Road Lyrics

Artist : LANEGAN, MARK
Album : Sunday At Devil Dirt

Who built the road
That lived in my self esteem
Twisted and crunched
Black metal and bones

Who passed the buck
Who pressed my flesh to yours
Spilling like wine
And sweeter than tears

(Oh, I hope we more than survive
With trembling visions that terrify)

So who built the road
Who turned it all around
Picked through the wreck
Scrambled in the dust

Who built the road
Who was the foolish one
Step out of time
Two hearts in the fire

Who lit the touch
Who fanned the flames
With sparks in the dust
Spent rivers of desire

(Oh, why don't we learn from mistakes
We stumble along with so many more to make)

So who built the road
Who could foresee
That the answers we sought
Were many miles to go

Lah lah...

We were so lonely at times
Fading away
Sitting side by side
Now we built the road
We were the chain gang
We crossed that at war
The devil at my side
Dark angel within
The ever lasting fire

Lah lah...

Come On Over (Turn Me On) Lyrics

Artist : LANEGAN, MARK
Album : Sunday At Devil Dirt

Like a thief
Crawling through the night
Like a drunk
Brawling in a fight
How she gonna know what is
Right from wrong

Come on over, turn me on

Sunday best
You're my favourite suit
You make the team
You're no substitute
I know baby I'm your
Favourite son, listen up babe

Come on over, turn me on

Is it any wonder
Is it any wonder
I lay awake all night
Is it any wonder
On a Sunday soon
I see the light

Tell me baby
Tell me pretty lies
See the spider
Been out catching flies
Will you leave me I know it
Won't be long before you

Come on over, turn me on

Is it any wonder
Is it any wonder
I lay awake all night
Is it any wonder
On a Sunday soon
I see the light

Like a blind man
Driving at the wheel
Like a hound dog
Scratching out a meal
You and I both know it
You belong

Come on over, turn me on

The Flame That Burns Lyrics

Artist : LANEGAN, MARK
Album : Sunday At Devil Dirt

The flame that burns
Flame that burns
The flame that burns
Flame that burns

The flame that burns
Flame that burns
The flame that burns
Flame that burns

Takes you through the years
Takes you through the pain
Can't stop the tears when they fall like rain
For the flame that burns
Flame that burns

Beware my child
Beware
To take care my friend
Got to take care

You don't know who to love
Don't know who to trust
When it hurts so bad blood flows where it must
For the flame that burns
Flame that burns

Unto eternity
One day we shall
We shall be free
When stars rain down like dust
Have heart my child
Oh but you must

Don't you hang your head
Don't you feel no shame
If I were with you now
I would do the same
For the flame that burns
Flame that burns

Keep Me In Mind, Sweetheart Lyrics

Artist : LANEGAN, MARK
Album : Sunday At Devil Dirt

If you ever find that you've fallen behind
Please keep me in mind, sweetheart
If your love is true
Then my money's on you
And you'll know what to do, sweetheart

Summer was high when you caught my eye
Though I was pledged to another
The feeling was strong when you came along
Now Lord only knows how I suffer

Oh, if you change your mind
Leave your old love behind
Just keep me in mind, sweetheart
Please keep me in mind, sweetheart

Summer was high when you caught my eye
Though I was pledged to another
The feeling was strong when you came along
Now Lord only knows how I suffer
If it's part of God's plan
Then you'll find where I am
Please keep me in mind, sweetheart
Just keep me in mind, sweetheart
Just keep me in mind, sweetheart

Something To Believe Lyrics

Artist : LANEGAN, MARK
Album : Sunday At Devil Dirt

There's a mockingbird singing in a tree
Outside my window looking down on me
Give me a reason, something to believe
Another season I will sit and grieve

That bad old sun forever shining on
The world keeps turning, though my hope is gone
I close my eyes and when that day is done
I hang my head and dream about no one

Show me direction and I'm good to go
I'm trying so hard, always fall so low
And when I fall, there'll be another star
I'm chasing my tail, always running

Oh, it is so hard
With the end
Since I find
We're real hard
Weary soul
We come [?]
Oh, it is so hard

Now you heard my song, will you turn and go
Give me a reason, and I'll say it's so
If you stand by me, I could never leave
You'd be the reason, something to believe
Something to believe
Something to believe
Something to believe

Trouble, oh trouble
Haven't slept a day in years
Haven't slept a day in years
Haven't slept a day

Trouble, oh trouble
Haven't slept a day in years
Haven't slept a day in years
Haven't slept a day

When the neon lights that find you
Leave our memory far behind you
Down the line I will remind you
Listen how I love you

Trouble, oh trouble
Haven't slept a day in years
Haven't slept a day in years
Haven't slept a day

Trouble, oh trouble
Haven't slept a day in years
Haven't slept a day in years
Haven't slept a day

When the world steals all hope from you
Wonder where your dreams have gone to
You're the one I still belong to
Listen why I love you

Sally, Don't You Cry Lyrics

Artist : LANEGAN, MARK
Album : Sunday At Devil Dirt

Oh Sally, don't you cry
Oh Sally, don't you cry
The man's the man
Does the best he can
Oh Sally, don't you cry

Oh Sally, don't you moan
Oh Sally, don't you moan
Go hang up the phone
Give the dog a bone
Oh Sally, don't you moan

Sally, it ain't so bad
Sally, it ain't so bad
I see you are mad
Though he's the best you've had
Sally, it ain't so bad

Oh Sally, sail on by
Sweet Sally, sail on by
Oh the times are hard
Though you question why
Oh Sally, sail on by
Oh Sally, sail on by
Oh Sally, sail on by

You Won't Let Me Down Again Lyrics

Artist : LANEGAN, MARK
Album : Hawk

You sold your soul
When you drank the morning dew
Down on your luck
And so thirsty through and through
The crack in the mirror
Tells of seven years of pain
And you won't let me down again

Drive through the night
Just to see the ocean green
Race to the coast
There's no telling where I've been
Both eyes on the road ahead
Don't wanna look behind
And you won't let me down again

Ten miles of the city
And I lose you in the rain
So you won't let me down again

Aeroplane, aeroplane
Race across the fields
Taking me home
Was further from the deals
Your father was a weaker man
Give up without a sound
But you won't let me down again

Strength is in the solitude
I tried to obtain
But you won't let me down again

A head full of visions
I struggle to recall
Those ancient of wisdoms
Are poured into us all
Air will crackle in the heat
The harvest moon will reign
And you won't let me down again

And I don't look for pity
So if it's all the same
You won't let me down again

You won't let me down again

Come Undone Lyrics

Artist : LANEGAN, MARK
Album : Hawk

I stumble and I fall, your time is on my side
Don't make sense of it all, despite my foolish pride
It's got me on my knees, tearin' up my heart
I'm shakin' at my bones, tearin' me apart

When I can't get close to you
I come undone, I come undone
Come undone, babe, I come undone

Time will take its toll, time can break your heart
And if I had the chance, we'd never have to part
Took my only flame, took my one desire
Threw it all away when jumping in the fire

I can't get close to you
I come undone, come undone
Come undone, babe, I come undone

When the day is done I lay me down to rest
Everyone will see that I loved you the best
When all is said and done here simple and explain
And if I have the chance I'll do it all again

But I can't get close to you
I come undone, I come undone
Come undone, babe, I come undone

I'm not scared of the dark though you tangle and tease me
But worse than your bark you said you'd never leave me
The devil make everybody, don't please believe me
Oh love of my life, won't you let me down easy?

Undone, I come undone
Come undone, babe, I come undone
I come undone, I come undone
Come undone, babe, I come undone

No Place To Fall Lyrics

Artist : LANEGAN, MARK
Album : Hawk
(with Willy Mason)

If I had no place to fall and I needed to
Could I count on you to lay me down?

I'll never tell you, no lies
I don't believe it's wise
You got pretty eyes, won't you spin me 'round?

I'm not much of a lover, it's true
I'm here and I'm gone and I'm forever blue
But I'm sure wanting you

The sky falls silver and gold
It tries to hide the sun but it can't be done
'Least not for long

But if we help each other grow
While the light of day smiles down our way
Oh, we can't go wrong

But time, she is a fast old train
She's here and she's gone and she won't come again
So won't you take my hand?

If I had no place to fall and I needed to
Could I count on you to lay me down?

Sunrise Lyrics

Artist : LANEGAN, MARK
Album : Hawk

Sunrise
Forgot to cover up my eyes
Sunrise
Should've covered up my eyes
Beauty wasted on me
Winds are shakin' my tree
With a woman too good, to believe
Take the first ride out that I see

Sunrise
Skies are servin' my plan
Grounds are movin' where I stand
Pull an airplane down
With my hand
And take the first flight out that I can

Sunrise
Forgot to cover up my eyes
Beauty wasted on me
Winds are movin' my trees
With a woman too good, to believe
Take the first ride out that I see
Sunrise

To Hell And Back Again Lyrics

Artist : LANEGAN, MARK
Album : Hawk

I'm in despair, I cannot win
I have been to hell and back again
My doctor knows, he comes and goes
For I'm at Your door, I'm knee up in the storm

My sister says that I should rest
She's been there too and she knows best
A spirit's close, I love the most
The Father, Son and Holy Ghost

Nothing to fear when He draws near
As the twilight falls to wipe away your tears
When he laid me down, when he brought me around
My baby's prayer, the sweetest sound

I'm in despair, I cannot win
I've been to hell and back again
And back again, and back again
And back again, come back again

The Gravedigger's Song Lyrics

Artist : LANEGAN, MARK
Album : Blues Funeral

With piranha teeth
I've been dreaming of you
And the taste of your love, so sweet
Honest, it's true

Through my heart flows sleep
And the dark, heavy rain
Where the gravedigger's song is sung
You've been torturing me

Tout est noir, mon amour
Tout est blanc
Je t'aime, mon amour
Comme j'aime la nuit

Love, is the medicine good?
Is the crow flying eight miles high
Over wire and wood?

Shovel down six feet
With a head heavy pain
The magnolia blooms so sweet
And it fades just the same

To the stars, my love
To the sea
To the wheels, my love
'Til they roll all over me

Oh love, I've been thinking of you
With razor white teeth, so sharp
Honest, it's true

In my blood flows sleep
And the dark heavy rain
The magnolia blooms so sweet
Only torturing me

To the stars, my love
To the sea
To the wheels, my love
'Til they roll all over me

Bleeding Muddy Water Lyrics

Artist : LANEGAN, MARK
Album : Blues Funeral

Lord now the rain done come

Muddy water
Rising up
You know I feel you
In my iron lung
Muddy water
Celestial flood
You know I feel you
In my iron lung

Oh baby don't it feel so bad
Muddy water
Drowning in the rain
Now the rain done come

Muddy water
Pillar to post
How do I bleed you?
Just like a ghost
Muddy water
Heaven's son
You are the bullet
You are the gun

Oh baby don't it feel so bad
Muddy water
Drowning in the rain
Now the rain done come

Muddy water
Be my grave
You are the master
I've been the slave
Muddy water
Come rising up
You know I feel you
In my iron lung

Gray Goes Black Lyrics

Artist : LANEGAN, MARK
Album : Blues Funeral

Don't you turn off my radio
Please don't turn off my radio
Not with the rope still swinging
While eternity's mouth is singing

So insect I'm in amber
Days go by please don't forget
Uneven, so enamored
Days go by remember that

Gray goes black

Can't you hear my radio?
Don't you hear my radio?
Not with the beast still sleeping
While eternity's eyes are weeping

So insect I'm in amber
Days go by please don't forget
Uneven, so enamored
Days go by remember that

Gray goes black

Into the blood we sink and burn
Gray goes black

St. Louis Elegy Lyrics

Artist : LANEGAN, MARK
Album : Blues Funeral

I look at the sky
I see an airplane as it flies
Is this the way they said Jesus came?
Gone through St. Louis
Gone straightaway
And i hear the winter will cut you quick
If tears were liquor I'd have drunk myself sick

Woman are you home?
A house of cards, a frame of bones
Here I am earthly bound
Said hallelujah I'm going down
And the River Jordan is deep and wide
I think I see forever across on the other side

I look at the sky
I see a nightbird as it flies
Over the old bent cherry trees
Shivering in a row
Down here the winter will cut you quick
These tears are liquor and I've drunk myself sick

And the dead of winter will cut you quick
These tears are liquor and I've drunk myself sick

Riot In My House Lyrics

Artist : LANEGAN, MARK
Album : Blues Funeral

There's a riot in my house
Chaos is blossoming
Run and hide little mouse
Go on and get yourself together
When burn outs by the score
Strung out in metal cages
See technicolor pour
From every laceration
I realize that I'm slowly coming down with you

Angels fill my room
With what I've scant belief in
When death's metal broom
Comes sweeping through the evening
Get up off the floor
There's hot smoking radiation
From window to the door
In ultra violent hesitation
I realize that I'm slowly coming down with you

Battle lines appear
Within the broken mirrors
Yet the dogs have no fear
Fighting in the dark grey shadows
Hear the coughing sound
Mama bring my medication
No harmony is found
While performing levitation
I realize that I'm slowly coming down with you

There's a riot in my house
Chaos is blossoming
Run and hide little mouse
Go on and get yourself together
From window to the door
There's cold choking strangulation
See technicolor pour
From every amputation
And realize that I'm slowly coming down with you

Ode To Sad Disco Lyrics

Artist : LANEGAN, MARK
Album : Blues Funeral

The sun's tolling bell
Subterranean eyes
A thousand to one
The factory line
Stars outside the window flicker and shine
The hollow headed morning isn't blind
A mountain of nails burn in your hands
Here I give all I am

Gloria
I get down on my knees
Further from my own

A tower of stones
Sympathy's shade
Ride a white horse
The drowned on parade
A diamond headed serpent climbs a vine
See all the lonely children lose their minds
A mountain of dust burns in your mouth
Here there's no north, just south

Gloria
I get down on my knees
Further from my own

Thirst swollen tongue
An arcadian twist
The sleepwalk is done
Yet the notion persists
Cars outside the window careening by
The hollow headed morning is unkind
Gloria
I get down on my knees
Further from my own
Under a cliff
Darkness denied
Here I have seen the light

Here I have seen the light

Phantasmagoria Blues Lyrics

Artist : LANEGAN, MARK
Album : Blues Funeral

I have given to you jane
A torn and tattered love
But do you hear the tolling bells
That ring down from above?
Thought I'd rule like charlemagne
But I've become corrupt
Now I crawl the promenade
To fill my empty cup

And you're free
You're free again
One more time

Now if you found a razorblade
And took it to your wrist
Then I'd be here in my electric chair
Because of this
All last night and night before
I stood on the pier and cried
But I don't want to turn away
For fear of going blind

And you're free
You're free again
One more time

I have given to you Jane
A bruised and beaten love
But do you see the cold white light
That shines down from above?
Thought I'd rule like charlemagne
But I've become corrupt
Now I'll crawl the promenade
To fill my empty cup

And you're free
You're free again
One more time

Quiver Syndrome Lyrics

Artist : LANEGAN, MARK
Album : Blues Funeral

I turned back towards the factory
With a rail running through my head
And the stain of a rust red romance
Though my iron age rose is dead
Will the Lord hold me down 'cause I'm wicked?
Will the Lord hold me down, to my shame?
Will your love it get into me Jesus?
Now I heard you calling out my name

The moon don't smile on saturday's child
Lying still in Elysian Fields
I don't know what the doctor he did
Now I'm all day long with my body in bed

Plant the seeds of an ivory white lily
Play the ghost of autumn's lullabye
You know the way i came down to the city
Snuffed the love light out of my eyes
I'm knocked back in the alley
With the sweat pouring off my hands
I can tear out a stitch 'cause it's aching
When I'm a shake, shake, shaking I can

The moon don't smile on saturday's child
Lying still in Elysian Fields
I don't hear what my mother she said
Now I'm all day long with my body in bed

I turn back toward the factory
With a rail running through my head
And the stain of a rust red romance
Though my iron age rose is dead
Will the Lord hold me down 'cause I'm wicked?
Will the Lord hold me down, to my shame?
Will your love it get into me Jesus?
Now I heard you calling out my name

The moon don't smile on saturday's child
Lying still in Elysian Fields
I don't know what the doctor he did
Now I'm all day long with my body in bed

Harborview Hospital Lyrics

Artist : LANEGAN, MARK
Album : Blues Funeral

I walked by harborview hospital
I heard the agnus dei
Oh sister of mercy
I've been gone too long to say
And all around this place I was a sad disgrace

They're singing, they're singing
Away up on the hill
They're building, they're building
A mystical union, beautiful and still
But down here in the dirt they'll say it doesn't hurt

The devil's ascended
Upon some crystal wings
In the citadel lightning
Splits a cloud of butterflies and fiends
And with a vacant stare I'll leave a flower there

They're riding, they're riding
A hellhound down the hill
They're sinking, they're sinking
Into the ocean, beautiful and still
And yet it's hard to leave in wealth or poverty

I walked by harborview hospital
And stopped at ninth and James
Oh sister of mercy
I've been down too far to say
Are they supposed to be as sick as you and me?

Leviathan Lyrics

Artist : LANEGAN, MARK
Album : Blues Funeral

After the deadlock and dazzle
As good as, or better than gold
I lay down my guns on the table
First scarlet, then blue growing cold

Black light and smoke
Making a joke
In the haze of a setting sun

Leviathan waits in the water
Skeletons hide in the trees
The hours crawl by like a spider
Hangman is following me

At sorrow's door
A century more
In the rays of a setting sun

After the deadlock and dazzle
Glitters at night like it's gold
You lay down your heart if you're able
First scarlet, then blue growing cold

Everyday a prayer
For what I never knew
But this is one I said for you

Deep Black Vanishing Train Lyrics

Artist : LANEGAN, MARK
Album : Blues Funeral

Yellow moon keep hanging there
And don't you ever come down
Tattered newspaper pages
Are scattered across the ground

Lost on a violent sea
Gone for endless days
I have tried to free myself
But it's been hard to break away

So long light, you're bound to fall
Now isn't that a shame
Casting shadows on the wall
Too late to learn another game

Transfixed by what isn't seen
And what will never change
The times I've tried to free myself
It's been hard to look away

It's a deep black vanishing train
Upon a very long track
Standing on a sidewalk in the rain
Hands behind my back

Lost on a violent sea
Day on endless day
I have finally freed myself
But it's been hard to break away

Tiny Grain Of Truth Lyrics

Artist : LANEGAN, MARK
Album : Blues Funeral

Put the pictures upon the shelf
The ones I tore from magazines and paperbacks
I'm a keep my hurt inside now love
When it's you I am following

What's done is done is done now
What's done is done is done now
What's done is done is done now
What's done is done

Send down the firewalker
Send down the neon priest
Send down the junky doctor
Send down the shadow king
Down through the heart of the city at night
In black and white

Roll out to a blues funeral
Riding out in a long cortege
Gone with the mariachi
Gone with the butchermen
Gone straight through the eye of a needle at night
In black and white

Straight through the eye of a needle at night

I blurred the pictures and fooled myself
The ones that showed the terminal in negative
I'm a keep my hurt inside now love
And may you not uncover it

And blood is blood is blood now
And blood is blood is blood now
Yes blood is blood is blood now
And blood is blood
Straight through the eye of a needle at night
In black and white

Send down the firewalker
Send down the neon priest
Send down the junky doctor
Send down the shadow king
Out through the heart of the city at night
In black and white

Burning Jacob's Ladder Lyrics

Artist : LANEGAN, MARK
Album : Blues Funeral

Dreams stripped down beyond firelight
I would go over but my only coat's off white
And seeing things unreal
God knows what that stain
And what comes crawling back again

Tears are harbored
Down to the thorny altar
I'm afraid I might fade away

It's to the blood we sing and burn
Thousand blackbirds on a string return
There's a solitary sun too high
Gone without the chosen one, goodbye

The ashes scatter
Burning Jacob's ladder
I'm afraid I might fade away

It's to the blood we sing and burn
Thousand blackbirds on a string return
There's a solitary sun too high
Gone without the chosen one, goodbye

It's to the blood we sing and burn
Thousand blackbirds on a string return
There's a solitary sun too high
Gone without the chosen one, goodbye

Rage untethered
The soul a stony desert
I'm afraid I might fade away

Dreams stripped down beyond firelight
I would go over but my only coat's off white
And seeing things unreal
God knows what that stain
And what comes crawling back again

The ashes scatter
Burning Jacob's ladder
I'm afraid I might fade away

Mockingbirds Lyrics

Artist : MARK LANEGAN
Album : The Winding Sheet

Your voice is a mockingbird
Calling me when the day is gone
You please yourself with every word
Telling me where I'm going wrong
Telling me where I've gone wrong

Get me out it's starting to burn
I can't let go for the life of me
Some hold tight, and some turn
Another fire out in front of me
My whole life out in front of me

You can't kill what's already dead
But I don't blame you for trying it
The sun comes up and falls away
Two little birds makin' sense of it
Two mockingbirds making sense of it

Museum Lyrics

Artist : MARK LANEGAN
Album : The Winding Sheet

You hear them call your name
From your room
Far removed
Don't let 'em use you in, every way
Stay unchained
Around and round you go
They'll never know, what you've seen
Why have you turned away
You can believe, believe in me
Couldn't you try one time
See if they'll run, for a while
It's a solitary star
Shining precious light
Light on me
When I see your eyes
Tell me what you find
But I oughta know, by now
Did you hear them call your name
From your room
Far removed
I'd only use you in, every way
Stay unchained
It's a solitary star
Shining precious light
Light on me

Undertow Lyrics

Artist : MARK LANEGAN
Album : The Winding Sheet

Water will forgive me, I'm just tryin' to forget
Starin' at the water as the waves turn ruby red
Remembering
Fear and paranoia run together in my dreams
Water will accept me give me a peace I've never seen
Remembering
Wrap your arms around me
And I'm as light as anything
Through the air I can't breathe
Your lips form a curious smile
Water will forgive me for everything I never should
Water will accept me for all the things I never could
Wrap your arms around me
And I'm as light as anything
Through the air I can't breathe

Ugly Sunday Lyrics

Artist : MARK LANEGAN
Album : The Winding Sheet

I feel your blood run cold
And it's a rainy Sunday morning
I count the million miles I'm driftin'
From here, to hell
Today

Behind their windows people stare
Can't recognize the kindness there
Just prayers for drownin' ships at sea
None for me
And you

It'll take a hard rain to wash your taste away
Still I wish there was a reason left to stay

I'm drunk half blind
And it's an ugly Sunday morning
The wind arrives with the clouds refusing to break
Apart, like me
Why if all the world's stopped turnin'
How can all this rain keep fallin'
Washin' me a million miles away
From you

Why if I'm so alone now
Is it getting hard, to say goodbye now
Goodbye now

Down In The Dark Lyrics

Artist : MARK LANEGAN
Album : The Winding Sheet

Baby, you're goin' down in the dark
Show my lonely night is fallin'
I don't have very long
I think my blood might boil
Then my veins might burn
And you're gonna make it better for a little while

Baby, you're gonna die someday
See you when you're crawlin', wasted
Then you'll start to fade
That won't be so I'm sinkin' faster
I wouldn't wait so long
It won't get any easier in the dark

Oh yeah
You will
You will
You will
You will
You will

Baby, you're goin' down in the dark
Think my lonely night is fallin'
I don't have very long
Think my blood might boil
And then my veins might burn
And you're gonna make it better for a little while

Oh yeah
You will [11x]

Wild Flowers Lyrics

Artist : MARK LANEGAN
Album : The Winding Sheet

I have to watch you come back to the river
Now it's all I can do
Will you still be convinced wild flowers
Are waiting for you

In my mind I've done good things
And never cared why
And my mind is an open door, with nothing inside

Looks like the hour is upon us
It's turnin' so cold
When everything said's either faded out
Or written in stone

If you could find an easier road, you'd take it today
You could have taken me anywhere
You just take it away

I have to watch you come back to the river
If it's all I can do
Will you still be convinced wild flowers
Are waiting for you

Have we ever done good things
And never cared why
'Cause my mind is an open door, with nothing inside

Eyes Of A Child Lyrics

Artist : MARK LANEGAN
Album : The Winding Sheet

See through the eyes of a child
And it won't be real
Eyes neither hateful or cruel
No lies conceal
Eyes that wander, eyes that strayed
While the shame in your heart
Remains

Cryin' were the eyes of a child
In pain, tonight
Tears that I bled on you
From the heart of an angel of fear, tonight
We can wander, we could stray
But the shame remains

See through the eyes of a child
And it won't be real
I have loved your eyes
Neither hateful or cruel
No lies conceal
We could wander, we could stray
But the shame, has remained
Has remained
It has remained

The Winding Sheet Lyrics

Artist : MARK LANEGAN
Album : The Winding Sheet

Saw God staring from the wall
I was alone and lost
Here to take me from this world
Still alone and lost

Night when the dogs from hell come out
Roam my house in chains of gold
The darkness dares my eyes to close

Saw a ghost in the shadows smile
I was sick in my soul
All tied up in a winding sheet
Still sick in my soul

Night when the dogs from hell come out
Roam my house in chains of gold
The darkness dares my eyes to close

With the setting sun [3x]

Tired I lay me back on thorns
Full of fear in my head
Lay me back so I could not rise
Full of fear in my head

Night when the dogs from hell come out
Roam my house in chains of gold
The darkness dares my eyes to close
With the setting sun
Rose with the setting sun

With the setting sun
The night is born, my time has come
With the setting sun
With the setting sun
Jesus touch my hand
Please touch my hand
Please touch my hand
With the setting sun

Ten Feet Tall Lyrics

Artist : MARK LANEGAN
Album : The Winding Sheet

I see they're comin'
Just tell me it ain't true
How lonely sorrow, and I fall back to you
One time or another
Like I want

She is alone, and I don't walk that tall
Memories amounting, to nothin' I can't keep
Just as soon forgotten
Hate is all, that her tears ever show
Saying sing, well come on black cat sing

Hate is gone, drippin' lies from the tongue
Demanding my all, well I don't walk that tall

I see they're comin'
Just tell me it ain't true
Head down in sorrow and I, stumble back to you
One time or another
You might find
Hate is all, that her tears ever show
Sayin' sing, well come on black cat sing
I don't walk that tall
I don't walk that tall

Where Did You Sleep Last Night? Lyrics

Artist : MARK LANEGAN
Album : The Winding Sheet

My girl, my girl, don't lie to me
Tell me where did you sleep last night

In the pines, in the pines
Where the sun don't ever shine
I would shiver the whole night through

My girl, my girl, where will you go
I'm going where the cold wind blows

Her husband, was a hard working man
Just about a mile from here
His head was found in a driving wheel
But his body never was found

Juarez Lyrics

Album : The Winding Sheet

Night train is groovy
An orange jubilee
Feels good comin' and goin'
I'm warm all over me

Fire up the crack boys
And tie off my arm
Cinch up my diaper
Turn the TV on
Give me another blow job
Before I'm on the nod
Say you'll always love me and
Never do me harm
Never do me harm
Never do me harm

Well you're a preacher's daughter
And I'm a bastard's son...

Better than I love myself
Want you and me

The River Rise Lyrics

Artist : MARK LANEGAN
Album : Whiskey For The Holy Ghost

Oh the river rise
And it's a mile high
Is this worth tryin'
Is this worth tryin'
Cause I could fall
Like a tear
Well there's nothing else I can do

When I'm not alone
Nothings beside me
What one eye sees
The other's blind in
Well I could fall
As if I was young
With a lifetime to think of you

Fire one for losing
And two for hiding
Keep river moving
Movin' right by me
I could fall
And there's nothin' else I can do

Ah the river rise
And it's a mile high
Has this world turned
Has this world tried
Cause I could fall
Like a tear
well there's nothin' else I can do

Up on the river rise
She's a mile high

Borracho Lyrics

Artist : MARK LANEGAN
Album : Whiskey For The Holy Ghost

Oh....oh [4x]
Trouble comes in slowly
A neverlasting light come to shine all over me
Bright in the mornin'
Like all of heaven's love come to shine on me
And to you who never need
Fuck yourselves, I need some more room to breathe

Here comes the devil, prowl around
One whiskey for evey ghost
And I'm sorry for what I've done
Cause it's me who knows what it cost

It breaks and it breathes, and it tears you apart
It bites and it bleeds
And this desert turns to ocean over me

Here come the devil, prowl around
One whiskey for every ghost
And I'm sorry for what I said
I said I just don't care anymore

A fool can feed on the notion
Sees and believes
And this desert turns to ocean over me

Trouble comes in slowly
A neverlasting light come to shine all over me
At the dead end to mornin' darlin'
With all of heaven's love come to shine on me

The fool that feeds on the notion
Sees and believes
And this desert turns to ocean over me

Here come the devil, buy the round
One whiskey for every ghost
And I'm sorry for what I done
Lord it's me who knows what it costs

The fool that feeds on the notion
Sees and believes
And this desert turns to ocean over me

Here come the devil, prowlin' round
One whiskey for every ghost
And I'm sorry for what I said
I said I just don't care anymore
It breaks and it breathes and it tears you apart
Gonna bite, gonna bleed
Til this desert turns to ocean over me

House A Home Lyrics

Artist : MARK LANEGAN
Album : Whiskey For The Holy Ghost

Here ya are, at the top of the tower
Could a body take that much
Alone through every waking hour
Asleep without nobody to touch

Whoa,whoa,whoa,and
Only silence here
Whoa,whoa,whoa,and
Lonely silence here
And I'm not the one
Make your house a home
Makes no sense to stay
Through one more lonely last day
Oh no babe, it's not right

Here ya are, cryin' in the night
Could a body take that much
Find yourself standin' outside
You ain't got nobody to touch

Whoa,whoa,whoa,and
There's only silence here
Whoa,whoa,whoa, and
There's only silence here
And I'm not the one
make your house a home
Makes no sense to stay
Through one more lonely last day
oh no babe, it's not right

Kingdoms Of Rain Lyrics

Artist : MARK LANEGAN
Album : Whiskey For The Holy Ghost

Are those halos in your hair
Or diamonds shining there
Without a hope, without a prayer
This rain beats down like death
You turn your eyes to better men
Before I go I'm hangin' a cross on the nail
I hung one for you now

Girl lay your shame to rest
then hold the lies close to your breast
You stoop to feed the crows
Some scraps of truth already cold
Before I go I'm hangin' a cross on the nail
I hung one for you now
And every kingdom of rain comes pourin' down
Cause I loved you so long
Cause I loved you so long

Would you put halos in your hair
Without a hope without a prayer
What lies close to your breast
then finally lay your shame to rest
Before I go I'm hangin' a cross on the nail
I hung one for you now
And every kingdom of rain comes pourin' down
Cause I loved you so long
cause I loved you so long
Cause I loved you so long

Carnival Lyrics

Artist : MARK LANEGAN
Album : Whiskey For The Holy Ghost

Where in the world have you been
It's as strange as I've ever lived
So you're comin' along to the sideshow
I'll be fallin' all over like dominos
For girls are sad in their eyes
They're all standin' around bein' hypnotised
And walkin' me back to the firin' line
Ya smile to get in the door
Ya can't keep it closed anymore
Tell your ma that you're gone to the freakshow
I'm crawlin' all over the carnival
Just scratchin' a stitch in a skin
I'm moanin' for more of the medicine
In the mornin' you're wonderin' where ya been
Just turnin' your back to the ghost
And tryin' to look like you just might know
That all of the good that you've seen
Just went down and into the drain
Oh kids am I straight out for now
In the mornin' I'm gonna find it on out
What in the world can it be
It's as strange as I've ever seen
The girls are dead in their eyes
Just standin' around like they're hypnotised
Who'll follow me back to the freak show
I'm crawlin' all over the carnival
And I am gone
The kid's in a straight out for now
In the mornin' I'm wanna find it on out
What in the world can it be
It's as strange as I've ever seen
The girls are dead in their eyes
Just standin' around like they're hypnotised
Who'll follow me back to the freak show
I'm crawlin' all over the carnival
And I am gone

Riding The Nightingale Lyrics

Artist : MARK LANEGAN
Album : Whiskey For The Holy Ghost

Dyin' mama barely breathin' in a bed of nails
To wander through the ruin smokin' and pale
Came upon an angel and a nightingale
Back where the darkness comes
Between the earth and skies above
Dead weight on my body's bones
I think I dug too deep a hole
Think I dug too deep
a hole

Better run for cover babe you better hide
Don't do no good to wait til time decides
Time decides
Time
Time
I need a little more time
Riding on my nightingale
So many years to, to ride
Hiding on my nightingale, around my heart

Climbing down the stairs at last
I wouldn't touch me right
You're too proud and I'm too scared
And I'm neither here nor there
It's only fear
Well open up the doors
And let me breathe that air

Better run for cover babe you better hide
Just don't do to wait til time decides
Time decides
Time
Time
I need a little more time

Mama I'm gonna cry now
Cry, I'm gonna cry now
Oh you're makin' me cry now
Cry, I'm gonna cry now
Oh, no, no, no, no, no
I'm gonna cry
Cry
I'm gonna die cryin'

Better run for cover babe you'd better hide
Just don't to wait til time decides
Tied around my nightingale
So many years to, to hide
Fly my nightingale
Around my heart
Who's riding on my nightingale [7x]

El Sol Lyrics

Artist : MARK LANEGAN
Album : Whiskey For The Holy Ghost

The sun is gone, and that's all I really know
No angels in the air
With hearts as good as gold
The closer you stand to the gates
The more the gates are closed

These darkened days
Make somebody's hunger and thirst
The blessed burns the sun
He's throwin' shadows on the earth
The shadow you find at the gate
And all the gates are closed
Oh yeah

Anytime you find your race is run
Felt much colder standin' in the sun
Waitin' for some warmth and comin' down
Felt much older than I really was
Waitin' for some warmth and comin' down

The sun is gone, yeah that's all I really know
No angels in the air
With hearts as good as gold
The closer you stand to the gates
The more the gates are closed

Anytime you find your race is run
Felt much colder standin' in the sun
Waitin' for some warmth and comin' down
Felt much older than I really was
Waitin' for some warmth and comin' down
Felt much older standin' in the sun'
Waitin' for some warmth and comin' down [repeat]

Dead On You Lyrics

Artist : MARK LANEGAN
Album : Whiskey For The Holy Ghost

You were a ragged
Turquoise and twilight coat
I got my head hung down for you
Some day you're gonna need it
But it's worn or the, cloth gets torn
And there's only one way to go
It's gone dead, dead
It's gone dead on you
Take off your ragged
Turquoise and twilight coat
I got my head hung down for you
Someday you're gonna need it
But it's worn or the, cloth gets torn
And then there's only on way to go
It's goin' dead, dead
It's going dead, dead
It's goin' dead on you

Shooting Gallery Lyrics

Artist : MARK LANEGAN
Album : Whiskey For The Holy Ghost

I'll tell you how I woke up on the line
My sister I almost saw the light
Look my hands are tied
I'll see you in another hallway
Some other time

Well I don't understand this big parade
It's a five star decoration day
Look my hands are stained
I was washin' 'em the water
Well the water fell away

I'll tell you how I woke up on the line
Sorry for a soul in heaven passin' by
Look my hands are tied
I will see you in another station
Some other time

Sunrise Lyrics

Artist : MARK LANEGAN
Album : Whiskey For The Holy Ghost

Sunrise
Forgot to cover up my eyes
Sunrise
Should've covered up my eyes
Beauty wasted on me
Winds are shakin' my tree
With a woman too good, to believe
Take the first ride out that I see

Sunrise
Skies are servin' my plan
Grounds are movin' where I stand
Pull an airplane down
With my hand
And take the first flight out that I can

Sunrise
Forgot to cover up my eyes
Beauty wasted on me
Winds are movin' my trees
With a woman too good, to believe
Take the first ride out that I see
Sunrise

Pendulum Lyrics

Artist : MARK LANEGAN
Album : Whiskey For The Holy Ghost

Jesus Christ been here and gone
What a painful price to pay
He's left his life in a thunderstorm
Tears cold dark eyes upon
Swing pendulum, swing low
Got no place to call my own
Oh my Lord don't you bother me
I'm as tired as a man can be
I'm as tired as a man can be

Jesus Christ been here and gone
What a painful place to leave
With frost on the limbs of a cherry tree
This cold, cold wind is buryin' me
Swing pendulum, swing slow
Got no time to call my own
Oh my Lord don't you bother me
I'm as tired as a man can be
I'm as tired as a man can be

Judas Touch Lyrics

Artist : MARK LANEGAN
Album : Whiskey For The Holy Ghost

Put out the lions and close the door
I need you more
Than I did before
Old Jack's been killed and buried away
Let's hang alone
Outside the gate
Flames scare the lions as do their dreams
That's the way it'll always be
Better close the door
That's the way it'll alway be
Better close the door
Some fools forever don't ask for much
With frozen hand, calm Judas touch
Some towers of fire can be redeemed
Just let me burn
High worlds away

Beggar's Blues Lyrics

Artist : MARK LANEGAN
Album : Whiskey For The Holy Ghost

Night train, silver moon
You ask me why, I'm flyin'
To float on ashen wings
To choke on dust and feather
I learned you are a liar
It's right we should pretend
And lie with one another
It's right we should be twins
For I have loved no other

Look for me baby
Well I'm draggin' lonliness
And it's ten miles long
I thought I heard you scream baby
In the wheels of a train that crawls
When I don't wanna go
Cause you forget me when I'm gone, whoa
Look for me baby
Whenever ice is glistening upon the glass
D'ya ever find your dream baby
Well God knows I never hear mine close enough
I watched 'em slip away like this, whoa

I've been from one end of this street to the other
Now I want the gifts ya promised me lover
Look for me baby
Crow fly by with sister and brother
Deadly as a kiss, a sin to one another
Look for me baby
Well I'm draggin' lonliness and it's ten miles long
I thought I heard you scream baby
In the wheels of a train that crawls
And I don't wanna go
Cause you forget me when I'm gone, whoa

Night train, silver moon
You ask me why am I flyin'
To float on ashen wings
To choke on dust and feather
My dreams will go no further
Won't calm my violent river
Oh guardian of peace
Let the beggar walk in the winter
Look for me baby
Look for me baby
Look for me baby
Look for me baby
that's all

Hotel Lyrics

Artist : MARK LANEGAN
Album : Scraps At Midnight

From the dive down to the wet
Usually I fall, tell myself
It doesn't matter anyway
That this is just another day
I don't speak the truth too much
Hear the roars and the hush
And the cold chill of time
And I'm happy murderin' my mind

Oh I remember your voice
Turnin' around and around and around in my head
Now it's just like you said
Everything inside is dead

From the pillar to the post
I kill what I can miss the most
Of the blame when you get in touch
Another town another torch
Thought I saw you in a dream
Fill the hours in between
When I call myself alone
Then I disappear below

I remember your face
But it's been a long been a long been a long long day
What I did along the way
Well I wouldn't care to say

Stay Lyrics

Artist : MARK LANEGAN
Album : Scraps At Midnight

The heart will pound until the breath is gone
You know what I love so, put me on
Something has badly gone wrong with me
Livin's not hard, it's just not easy
Always keepin' the dogs off

Down like the rain, down like the rain
Comin' down like the rain, comin' down
Oh I wanna be there, by your side
Cause this feels like dyin' baby
Let me stay around, let me stay around

You take my heart, and my breath is gone
You know what I love so, put me on
Feel a little light-headed, you know I'd have to be
Believin' ain't hard, it's just not easy
Stayin' blind to the obvious

Down like the rain, down like the rain
Comin' down like the rain, comin' down
Oh I wanna be there, by your side
Cause this feels like dyin' baby
Let me stay around, let me stay around
[repeat]

Bell Black Ocean Lyrics

Artist : MARK LANEGAN
Album : Scraps At Midnight

We came to walk on this boulevard love
Don't care where we're goin'
While it's true in time, we might close our eyes
This won't die
Now we stop by the oceanside love
You are all I see
And it isn't wrong, that we don't belong
Anymore
We came to walk on this boulevard love
I don't care where we're goin'
While it's true in time, we might close our eyes
This won't die

Last One In The World Lyrics

Artist : MARK LANEGAN
Album : Scraps At Midnight

Goodbye my friend I hate to see you go
You brought me down the stars
The last one in the world
I hear you cry
But let's not waste this night
The last one in the world

Within your lonely room
I hear you whisper see you soon
I sense a dying spark
I watch you falling through the dark

Goodbye my friend, thank you for the dream
The last one in the world
I hear you cry
But let's not waste this night
The last one in the world

And I listen to you call
I hardly hear you at all
I walk the quiet night
Watch the river rolling by

The last one in the world [4x]

Wheels Lyrics

Artist : MARK LANEGAN
Album : Scraps At Midnight

Light ahead, proves that the wheels broke down
Here I am, still hangin' on
Well alright
Shadows only disappear
Just look around there's no one here
A little spirit turned my light on out and now
Can never be no doubt
You got to walk in the morning sun
And got to smile at everyone
Go my love on your way, to bigger and
Bright better days
And I'll go crazy for it all
And I won't stop lovin' you baby
Oh yeah here I am
This feeling inside a body
Light ahead, proves that the wheels broke down
Here I am, still spinnin' round
Shadows only disappear
Just look around there's no one here
A little spirit turned my light on out and now
Can never be no doubt
I'm gonna wait til the stars come down
My little love smiles on a wing
For all a raindrop and tears not wasted there
Been pourin' down all day
Runnin' round catchin' 'em baby
Run around catchin' 'em baby
Whichever way they fall
Won't stop lovin' you baby
Whichever way you go
Oh yeah
Here I am
Here I am
Just runnin' round catchin' 'em
Whichever way they fall
All night long

Waiting On A Train Lyrics

Artist : MARK LANEGAN
Album : Scraps At Midnight

It's time that I was leavin'
Shoulda left here long ago
You'd rather see me sorry
Than knowin' what I know

I wish it was asleep instead
Of hangin' here up above my head
I'm cryin'
In the winter time goin'

Pull all my shit together
Try for another breath
Lonely livin' sorrow
Holdin' on like death

From the play of lights below
Is that church bells ringin' or my whistle blowin'
I don't care
I'm gone
Shootin' up and down the tracks

Mornin' comes, cold chills and shakes
Just remindin' me of my mistake
Well alright
Now get your smell off of me mama

It's time that I was leavin'
I left here long ago
You'd rather see me sorry
Than knowin' what you know
Wish it was asleep instead
Of hangin' here up above my head
Lady
Lady midnight crawlin'

Just waitiing on a train

Day And Night Lyrics

Artist : MARK LANEGAN
Album : Scraps At Midnight

Early morning, I don't mind
That's when I find you
Find you under orange skies
I'm gonna try and shine

Blue drownin' days
Thought I might go crazy
Blue lonesome nights away

Early evening, I don't mind
That's when I find you
Find you under orange skies
Makin' me try and shine

Blue drownin' days
Thought I was insane
Blue lonesome nights away

Praying Ground Lyrics

Artist : MARK LANEGAN
Album : Scraps At Midnight

Not feelin' any pain
But I know that it's real
Never see the color of the day
In the darkness I kneel
Prayin' for sleep
Prayin' that it will come easy
But there's something else
I see it miles away

Don't know what time of year it is
I can remember the fall
Yet all my strange and simple games
Play out on top of a wall
Prayin for sleep
Prayin' for something so easy
If only the moon
Would have left me alone

Because Of This Lyrics

Artist : MARK LANEGAN
Album : Scraps At Midnight

You take me back to the place where I cease to exist
To find in a kiss
Somethin' I've missed
You burn away my disguise and galaxies fall
Because of this
Because of this
It hurt
God knows that it does
And when it hurts sometimes
You're there to quiet my mind
Because of this
Because of this
You pry open my eyes
I resist but you do
And when I stumble and bleed
You give your body to me
Because of this [3x]

Because of this [2x]

Oh and it hurts sometimes
Cause you're there to quiet my mind

You take me back to the place where I cease to exist
To find in your kiss
Something I've missed
You burn away my disguise
And the heavens fall
Because of this
Because of this
And it hurts
God knows that it does
But when I stumble and bleed
You give your body to me
Because of this [4x]

Carry Home Lyrics

Artist : MARK LANEGAN
Album : I'll Take Care Of You

Come down to the willow garden with me
Come go with me
Come go and see

Although I've howled across fields and my eyes turned grey
Are yours still the same
Are you still the same

Carry home
I have returned
Through so many highways
And so many tears
Your letter never survived the heat of my hand
My buring hand
My sweating hand
Your love never survived the heat of my heart
My violent heart
In the dark

Carry home
I have returned
Through so many highways
And so many tears

Come down to the willow garden with me
Come go with me
Come go and see

Although I've howled across fields and my eyes turned grey
Are yours still the same
Are you still the same

I'll Take Care Of You Lyrics

Artist : MARK LANEGAN
Album : I'll Take Care Of You

I know you've been hurt
By someone else
I can tell by the way
You carry yourself
But if you'll let me
Here's what I'll do
I'll take care of you

I loved and lost
Same as you
So you see I know
Just what you've been through
So if you'll let me
Here's what I'll do
I got to take care of you

You won't ever have to worry
You won't ever have to cry
I'll be there beside you
To dry your weeping eyes

So darlin' tell me
That you'll be true
'Cause there's no doubt in my mind
I know what I want to do
And just as sure as
One and one are two
I just got to take care of you
I'll take care of you
I'll take care of you

Shiloh Town Lyrics

Artist : MARK LANEGAN
Album : I'll Take Care Of You

It is so cold in Shiloh Town
Birds can hardly sing
Pretty girls gonna leave the town
They won't be back 'til spring

War is done they've come back home
But they're the ones that lost
See a man and a woman alone
Was it worth the cost?

I'll sing hallelujah
You'll sing hallelujah
We'll all sing hallelujah
When they arrive at home

Sun is out it's hot to today
Children all come out to play
Some are quick to come back home
Others, gone to stay

Gets so cold in Shiloh Town
Birds can hardly sing
Pretty girls gonna leave the town
They won't be back 'til spring

I'll sing hallelujah
You'll sing hallelujah
We'll all sing hallelujah
When they arrive at home

Creeping Coast Line Of Lights Lyrics

Artist : MARK LANEGAN
Album : I'll Take Care Of You

Leaving Hollywood
Sunset to the sea
Where the waves
Ride in on horses
I'm looking for her light
Creeping coastline of lights

The seas and the trees
Calling me
She's a river between day and night
I'm looking for her light
Creeping coastline of lights

She's comin down
From her mountian
Shinin white light
Like a fountain
And I'm lookin for her light
Creeping coastline of lights
And I'm lookin for her light
Creeping coastline of lights
