shook out the blankets with dust in their eyes
and you're ancient
wood is eaten through
but uptown they are saying that their
ships are on time
anchors away
we're chained to the bottom
put away and forgotten
how this feels

busy living most of our lives
on the lexington line
shuffled on subways
our 4 alarm fires are frozen in ice
anchors away boys
we are chained to the bottom
we've put away and forgotten
how this feels

somekind of lonesome
that they've
translated outwards for us
sleep in your ocean
chest towards the sun
you'll find love
it's easier to long for the days
when they left off to thank you
crush and outrank you
with hollows in their eyes

chasing the low birds
who sow up the skyline for us
sleep on your ocean
chest towards the sun
you'll find love
love

You moved like honey in my dream last night 
Yeah, some old fires were burning 
You came near to me and you endeared to me 
But you couldn't quite discern me 

Does that scare you? I'll let you run away 
But your heart will not oblige you 
You'll remember me like a melody 
Yeah, I'll haunt the world inside you 

And my big secret - Gonna win you over 
Slow like honey, heavy with mood 

I'll let you see me, I'll covet your regard 
I'll invade your demeanor 
And you'll yield to me like a scent in the breeze 
And you'll wonder what it is about me 

It's my big secret - Keeping you coming 
Slow like honey, heavy with mood 

Though dreams can be deceiving 
Like faces are to hearts 
They serve for sweet relieving 
When fantasy and reality lie too far apart 

So I stretch myself across, like a bridge 
And I pull you to the edge 
And stand there waiting 
Trying to attain 
The end to satisfy the story 
Shall I release you? 
Must I release you? 
As I rise to meet my glory 

But my big secret 
Gonna hover over your life 
Gonna keep you reaching 
When I'm gone like yesterday 
When I'm high like heaven 
When I'm strong like music 
''cause I'm slow like honey, and 
Heavy with mood

"100th post" B.G


Songwriters: LORENZ HART, RICHARD RODGERS

He was too good to me how can I get along now
So close he stood to me
Everything is all messed up and wrong now
My baby would have brought me the sun
Cos making me smile that was his fun

When I was mean to him he didn't say go away now
You see I was his queen to him
Who's gonna make me gay now
It's only natural that I'm blue
Cos my baby was too good to be true

I said he was too good to me how am I ever get along now
So close he stood to me
Everything's all messed up and wrong now
He would have brought me the sun and the moon
Cos anytime I left him it was too soon

When I was mean to him he didn't say go away now
I was his queen to him who's gonna make me gay now
It's only natural said it's only natural that I'm so blue
He was too good to be true

"28th".B.G

When you wake up sun will shine
We will not go under any cloud.
Let balloons go up in town,
ring out every bell.
Happy birthday, beautiful,
all the birds of this day
sing a song, sing a song.

Dream of trains carrying you
through the state parks with the cherry flowers.
When you wake up it will be
the beginning of the world.
Happy birthday, beautiful,
in the fields of this day
hear a song, hear a song.

Oh, undeserved sweetness and light,
stay by my side.
We will go out in the morning now,
a crown of maple leaves, a crown of flowers
circling your sweet head.
Happy birthday, beautiful,
in the streets of this day
play a song, play a song.

Faith has a good side still everyone she ever loved they all turned bad
Constance his own way of breathing and you know
You couldn't will him to survive
Couldn't will him if you if you tried, and there's a concrete sky
Falling from the trees again and you know now why
It's not coming round too soon
It's harder than a heartbreak too

I've seen your good side but I still don't know just what it is
That you might want
See you've got your own way of moving
And you know you could save me
Save your soul, I'll save some of you
Save my soul, feel like I'm falling fell like I'm falling
And there's a concrete sky
Falling from the trees again and you know now why
It's not coming round too soon, it's harder than a heartbreak too
It's tough enough what love will do

So much time gets lost in my mind
But I know now what I must rely on
It's a sound and forgetting, ain't the worst thing
I've been out walking don't do too much talking
Wouldn't take too much time, wouldn't take all your time
Cos it's as precious as mine Save my soul, I'll save some for you
Save my soul feel like I'm falling feel like I'm falling
And there's a concrete sky
Falling from the trees again and you know now why
It's not coming round too soon, it's harder than a heartbreak too
It's tough enough what love will do
And you're as precious as mine
And you're as precious as mine...
