I Am a Fool 

Woman take my arm again 
Before I fall to the ground 
I’m afraid of what might get me 
When I look around 
Please don’t leave me alone today 
There’s something in my eyes 
Now my mind is getting gray 
It’s like it’s in disguise 

What am I gonna say? 
What am I gonna do? 
What am I gonna think 
If I don’t have you? 
What am I gonna feel? 
What am I gonna prove? 
What am I gonna believe 
If I’m alone and not with you? 
I am a fool 

Woman come with me today 
Gonna make it on our own 
You see the sky is not so gray 
I think I see a rising sun 
I hope you trust in me 
No matter where we go 
I’m sorry if I lead the way 
And we fall into some holes 

Now what am I gonna say? 
What am I gonna do? 
What am I gonna think 
If I do have you? 
What am I gonna feel? 
What am I gonna prove? 
What am I gonna believe 
If I am with you? 
I’m still a fool

Rainy Nights

Sittin’ all alone, just waitin’ by the phone 
Even though I don’t expect your call 
My secrets and my fears, a conversation for the years 
Though I know it’s not happenin’ at all 
No not all 

So I see you in my mind all the time, oh, all the time 
I close my eyes, we laugh, it seems so true 
I’m missin’ you so much, and I’m wishin’ it was such 
That I could tell you what I think of you 
I think of you 

Oh, I dream of rainy nights 
They're floodin' up my brain 
It’s hard to be so water-logged and sane 
When the skies clear up I find 
I’m lookin’ at your face 
Knowing that I can’t have your embrace 

I’ve found that with some hope it’s not impossible to cope 
So I’m convinced that things will be alright 
And if this is how it gets after all my dumb regrets 
Then I’m just thankful that I see some light 
I see some light 

Oh, I dream of rainy nights 
They're floodin' up my brain 
It’s hard to be so water-logged and sane 
When the skies clear up I find 
I’m lookin’ at your face 
Knowing that I can’t have your embrace

Saving Disgrace 

She sits by herself 
Late at night 
Empty bottles there 
By her side 
She doesn’t know why she comes 
Back to this place 
She guesses she just feels like 
It’s her saving disgrace 

Sometimes it’s rainin’ 
And the sun’s shinin’ too 
But she won’t see it both ways 
She just begs, please, let me come back to you 

She paints a picture 
In her mind 
But if a picture says a thousand words 
Those words make her cry 
She believes in yesterday 
It helps her feel well 
She guesses she’s mainly just scared 
Of tomorrow’s hell 

Sometimes it’s rainin’ 
And the sun’s shinin’ too 
But she won’t see it both ways 
She just begs, please, let me come back to you 

She sees a rainbow 
But she looks down 
‘Cause she mainly thinks 
That it is God’s frown 
She only wants him back 
‘Cause she’s afraid 
Of going further down, down, down 

Sometimes it’s rainin’ 
And the sun’s shinin’ too 
But she won’t see it both ways 
She just begs, please, let me come back to you

 

Brand New Yesterday 

A young man sits 
In a crowded room 
He watches the people go by 
He’s just having a good time 
Not needing a reason why 
But then he hears 
A familiar name 
A name he used to love 
And he gets kinda sad 
‘Cause he dreams he’s who she’s athinkin’ of 

Oh, he is livin’ in the past 
Doesn’t he know it cannot last 
For today 
And he knows he hasn’t forgotten 
About her skin as soft as cotton 
No not today 

He’s grown up now 
Got a family 
A few kids of his own 
They remind him of when 
He was a child not so long ago 
And he misses 
Old family and friends 
So he’ll go down the stairs 
And he’ll look at old pictures 
And notes from the yesteryears 

Oh, he is livin’ in the past 
Doesn’t he know it cannot last 
For today 
He wants to see his mom and dad 
And all the friends he’s ever had 
But he can’t today 

He’s an old man now 
His kids are grown 
They put him in a home 
His wife and his friends 
They all died a long time ago 
He shuffles around 
He doesn’t care 
About whatever you say 
He’s got nothing to live for 
But death and yesterday 

Yea he’s still livin’ in the past 
Doesn’t he know it cannot last 
For today 
And it’s so hard to go on 
When each day just brings 
A brand new yesterday

Nothing to Say

Mummified in someone else's clothes 
Shallow preservation the only way to go 
Dryin’ up, gettin’ ready for display 
‘Cause I allowed things to carry on this way 

You tell me one thing that I don’t want to hear 
You push me further makin’ it so crystal clear 
That if you want me to stay 
I must have nothing to say 

Tables turn but that’s not where I halt 
Why I spread to others doesn’t matter but it’s my fault 
Leisure’s not the same as rolling down the stairs 
And now I’m freely tumbling coughin’ up some prayers 

I tell you one thing that you don’t want to hear 
I push you farther making it so crystal clear 
That if I want you to stay 
You must have nothing to say 

I tell you one thing that you don’t want to hear 
I push you farther making it so crystal clear 
That if I want you to stay 
You must have nothing to say
