I loved you so Fondly far-a-go And still today My peculiar reverie Never lets me be- Turns all my sweet dreams sour. Just like a vase of phony flowers Beautiful, and/but such a bore Silly, silly girl to wish for more- Than any ring Tales of queens and kings I loved you so Fondly far-a-go Now the very thought of you Makes my heart crumble and cower. You are my vice, you phony flower Dust collecting eye sore Still, I’m never gonna love anything more.

Up on my Private desert island Without a worry or care Yes, I was livin high on my Private desert Island Till somethin spoiled the air A strange nightmare-- Of two souls Who came to my Round Fumbled their way Through an endless maze With the Sun beating down-- Those beauties of mine Turned on a dime And just in their way, Rapid decay They fell to the ground As they gazed up at my sky A shootin star went by Burning ball of light I saw it move through their eyes, and I cried Stareyes! I know how this goes, In-ev-i-ta-b-ly Still, won’t you try Burn slow for me. Soon everything will be just fine Up on my Desert Island We'll have no worries or cares, Yes we will be livin' high Up on my Desert Island

My Old Tune 03:22
I don’t care for Grand goodbyes, or your Moon-soaked skies They can just pass me by But I know one thing very well I’m an easy tell Done with before I fell For you I already knew You were my old tune Say, do I do I do To my One and only Tried and true My Old tune

When there’s a Bone cold chill On a hot summer’s day (or a) Dizzy spell day dream Floats me away to some Unfamiliar place, a face that Makes my stomach drop (or a) A slippery melody that can’t be caught-- I look for the girl with big doe eyes A part of me always out of time Loopin’ in circles Tangled, intertwined (in the) Spin of the wheel, the tick of the wind Spin of the wheel, tick of the wind Mirror mirror on my wall Won’t you show me somehtin' To make sense of it all (cause I’m) Movin in circles Chasin’ my tale Endlessly searchin, but to no avail -- Then through the Spin of the wheel, tick of the wind I saw the girl grown old and wise (and she) Stared at me sweetly as she sighed “What once was yours, soon it will be mine” Spin of the wheel tick of the wind.

I planned our whole lived out you see On this train to Caen But those beaches down in Normandy, don’t do the things you want Got us stuck in the mud I would get stuck anywhere with you There’s no one I’d rather stick to Yes, I would get stuck anywhere with you. With sandy hair and blistered feat We wandered long the shore A couple miles down the way Still hadn’t found what we came for Never fear, mi amor (because) I would wander anywhere with you There’s few things else I’d rather do Yes, I would wander anywhere with you. Last call to JFK as we tumbled towards our gate I hoped that sitting duck would stay right there, But it got up and flew away. It really wasn’t our day. Still you know, I would miss just anything for you A train, a plane Let’s miss two (we’ve missed a few) I would miss just anything for you- I would get stuck anywhere-- Wander shored without a care-- I would miss just anything for you.

Buzz & Bloom 04:17
Each time it begins Just under my skin Fills me to the brim WIth blue And it’s all I can do Buzz and Bloom. Not a moment too soon Those butterflies and gloom Give way to a Moment Supreme But I know it can’t stay.

I don’t care for Grand goodbyes, or your Moon-soaked skies They can just pass me by But I know one thing very well I’m an easy tell Done with before I fell For you I already knew You were my old tune Say, do I do I do To my One and only Tried and true My Old tune
