Glad Music lyrics

NORWAY

i had a quick lunch, then i drove off
it was a very bizarre departure from your house
the weather was beautiful
i stopped to call you and you said yes
you were nevertheless optimistic of our love, but

when you're not around me, i get blue
i can't begin describing it to you, no
i feel a kind of invisible pain
without you there's no reasonable gain
norway norway norway
i've begun to dwell in misery
if only it was you that i could see, though
i feel a kind of unthinkable fear
there's no desire to live without you here
norway norway norway

i'm eating breakfast all by myself
it is a typically bland existence without you
filling the coffee cup

I LIKE TO STAY HOME

i like to stay home
you go on out just close the door
i like to stay home
where it's safe and sound
and nobody has a rifle

i don't care about going anywhere
i don't think about appearing anywhere
i got enough to do right here

i like to stay home
relax and read the facts of life
i like to stay home
where it's safe and sound
and nobody asks me what's wrong

i don't care about movies or hockey games
i just need about
why is it jabberwocky blames me?
i got enough to do right here

i like to stay home
and play guitar and play it back
i like to stay home
where it's safe and quiet
in private inside me
i think i'll stay home

i don't care about making any plans
i don't think about showing up at the dance
go without me got enough to right here

i like to stay home
you go on out and have a ball
i like to stay home
where it's safe and quiet
in private inside me
inside me

HE'S NUTS

he never hitched no ride on american roads
he never stooped so low just to carry his load
he's a rock 'n' roll poot in a matching suit
he's nuts

he never had no name but his daddy was cool
he never got the jokes concerning his tool
he's a rock 'n' roll poot with a song to boot
he's nuts

he never cleans his plate cause his mummy is gay
he never sees no fun when his friends come to play
he's a rock 'n' roll poot with a little bit o' loot
he's nuts
whoa he's nuts

PART OF THE PROBLEM

someone tell me what i'm supposed to do when the
occasion comes around for me to prove i am good
i can't find the answer to the question even
though i'd like to demonstrate if only i could

you are just part of the problem
i must be most of the problem

funny people always come to me about their
inhibitions but there's no solution at all
i would like to help but i am usually too busy
to prevent the way my friends want to fall

and consequently
the combination of your rhetoric
and my ignorance only tend to horrify the situation
to the point where
the lifeblood of our relationship evaporates
into the air on which we choke

i wanna show you that i
can't be anymore inspiring
just leave me alone until the
time comes when i learn the answer
then i'll write a novel 'bout it
you can read the novel and the
problem will be solved and we can

then go back to living in an ordinary way
and all the people all around us can say
they are really happy that the novel was successful
and they know just how to cope with today

possible, impossible
it's possible, impossible
it's probable, improbable now

DON'T LET ME GO TO THE DOGS

i was under duress
when i said i was mad
i was sad
i'm sorry i broke your heart
when i said you were had
you were bad

oh no
don't let me go to the dogs
when i desire to spend my whole life with you
oh no
don't go away with your dogs

people are not exactly
what they do believe
they perceive
when will i teach myself
when to stay when to leave
ask the beave

funny you mention life
after death, 'cause i know
where to go
we could go down to the pound
where the puppies can grow
very slow

YOUR DANCING EARS

i don't wanna talk about
a thing about a thing about
i think about you
think about this
i don't wanna talk about
a thing about a thing about
i think about you
think about this
i don't wanna talk about
a thing about a thing about
i think about you
think about this
i don't wanna talk about
a thing about a thing about
i think about you
think about this
compromise another compromise
compromise another compromise
i remember when i was a little kid
and i don't remember what's your name
are you happy or sad or don't you know
that i care about things around me
compromise another compromise
compromise another compromise
i remember when i graduated high school
you forgot what's my name
am i faking it
you better believe it absolutely
hooked on visine
hooked on visine
hooked on visine

just for a song you call me
you wanna know
could i would i make you one
just for a song you stop me
incognito
can i deny your dancing ears
move

just for a song you write me
you gotta know
did i will i give you one
just for a song you ball me
you had to know
have i should i sell you one
move

what else do they want from me
i make them a song but something goes wrong
compromise another drop in my eyes
it's a song of unbridled passionate joy

GLIB CONTEMPT

1985 r.stevie moore


WHY SHOULD I LOVE YOU

i am stuck here with a bottle of beer and i love you
you have been gone with him far much too long and i care

why should i love you
asthma chazza do, i wanna sing
why should i love you
yeah uh huh alright come on

nobody told me that you could be cold so i loved you
just how you talked to me, just how we walked as a pair

why should i love you
now you're never true, i wanna sing
why should i love you
yeah uh huh alright come on

every night of lies i wanna cry
falling my friend
she won't compromise i wanna die
suicide won't do, so

i'll go away so you can't hear me say that i love you
then you will see what it's like without me in your hair

1975 r.stevie moore


I LOVE YOU SO MUCH IT HURTS

i love you so much it hurts me
darlin that's why i'm so blue
i'm so afraid to go to bed at night
afraid of losing you

i love you so much it hurts me
and there's nothing i can do
i want to hold you my dear forever and ever
i love you so much it hurts me so

1948 floyd tillman


SHAKIN' IN THE SIXTIES

i can't forget the good times we all had
shakin' in the sixties
many people weren't alive then
shakin' in the sixties
playin' in the sun, shakin' in the sixties
man, everybody had fun
shakin' in the sixties

everybody knew everybody else
everybody knew everybody was high
everybody was in full agreement
that anything different was better

i can't forget the good times we all had
shakin' in the sixties
today's children weren't around then
shakin' in the sixties
wasn't it ideal?
shakin' in the sixties
man, everybody had fun
takin' all the pictures
only we could have a british invasion

i can't stand the eighties compared with
shakin' in the sixties
nobody needed mtv
we were far out

ALONG COMES MARY

every time i think that i'm the only one who's lonely someone calls on me
and every now and then i spend my time at rhyme and verse and curse those faults in me

but then along comes mary
and does she wanna give me kicks and be my steady chick and give me pick of memories
or maybe rather gather tales from all the fails and tribulations no one ever sees
when we met i was sure out to lunch
now my empty cup tastes as sweet as the punch

when vague desire is the fire in the eyes of chicks whose sickness is in the games they play
and when the masquerade is played and neighbor folks make jokes about who is most to blame today

and then along comes mary
and does she wanna set them free and make them see realities from which she got her name
and will they struggle much when told that such a tender touch of hers will make them not the same
when we met i was sure out to lunch
now my empty cup tastes as sweet as the punch

then when the morning of the warning's passed, the gassed and flaccid kids are flung across the stars
the psychodramas and the traumas gone the songs are left unsung and hung upon the scars

and then along comes mary
and does she wanna see the stains the dead remains of all the pains she sent the night before
or will their waking eyes reflect the lies and make them realize their urgent cries for sight no more
when we met i was sure out to lunch
now my empty cup tastes as sweet as the punch

1966 tandyn almer


COLLIDING CIRCLES

colliding circles
colliding circles contrasting
colliding circles
round meets round
oh oh
colliding circles
no hiding the girls are nasty
colliding circles
lying down on its side
means infinity

colliding circles
our failure to communicate
colliding circles
new rose 31 is magic
colliding circles
a shiny 10-speed
colliding circles
bartenders' handlebar moustaches

figure 8 number 8
lying down on its side
means infinity
i'm a bowl you're a plate
lying down on your side
right next to me
i'm a pie you're a cake
lying down on its side
means infinity
i'm a wheel you're the tire
lying down on your side
right next to me
colliding circles
colliding circles eyeglasses
colliding circles
the us a & sr
colliding circles
reagan overrules, that bastard
colliding circles
i'm afraid the bubbles will pop
colliding circles
providing the world disaster
colliding circles
our heads our faces touch
colliding circles
kiss me while you're here
fantastic
colliding circles
permanent and unbreakable
colliding circles
period.

TIME STANDSTILL

take a trip to heaven
someday hope so
it's gotta be better than this
take a nap at seven
sleep too longer
it's gotta be better than this
yet time stands still

take a chance with darvon
have no feeling
it's gotta be better than this
take a break from pain
boredom city
it's gotta be better than this
yet time stands still

some days i feel good and have a very pleasant time
some days just seem pointless and i still can't stand the time fly by
