Verve LYRICS



I WANT YOU IN MY LIFE

I love you, but I'm angry
I want you in my life
I need you to be true
I want you in my life

I see you too often
Most every twilight
I had you to talk to
I want you in my life
I want you in my life

Hold the phone for a minute
You can hold me closely in it
I love you, girl
Hold my hand for a second
You can hold your breath, I reckon
I reckon, girl
I want you in my life

Hold this guitar, be careful
Can't you see I've got my hair full
Of heartbreak, girl

I love you so badly
I burn up my light
I miss you to turn to
I want you in my life

1976 r.stevie moore



THE MOST POWERFUL STATEMENT IN HISTORY

Words don't come easy
Gets soft
Not saying anything
Is how the message moves
So slowly
Departure: check box marked "yes"
Arrival: check box marked "tba"
With pencil
Rock me, Laurie A
Rock my chair
Sit on my back
Big limited lady
I wanted to ask her
But the message receiver was an illusion
And another late winter day sighed
Lo and behold
Giving up made this dilemma worse
But Laurie fled to L.A.
Don't ask
I know it's truer than strange
Slower than still
Not saying anything
Is why the message moved
The most powerful statement in history

1984 r.stevie moore



EVERYTHING

Everything is good
Stay away if you are in a bad mood
Everything is good
Stay away, you're bringing me down

Monday is here
Spring is in the air
Afternoon is clear
Fluffing up my hair

Everything is good
Stay away if you are in a bad mood
Everything is great
Stay away, you're bringing me down

Tuesday it rains
Stay inside and paint
Hear commuter trains
So glad that I ain't

Everything is bad
Stay away if you are in a bad mood
Everything is lousy
Stay away, you're bringing me down

This Wednesday
Wednesday you call
Tell me you're alone
In the shower stall
Whatever happened to picture phones?

I wanna see you
I wanna see what you look like
I wanna watch you
I wanna see what you're wearing

Thursday is hot
Wish that I could swim
Hurts me a lot
Seeing you with him

Everything is ehh?
Stay away if you are in a bad mood
Everything's too much
Stay away, you're bringing me down

Friday is cool
Got my spirits high
I know that you'll
Accept our last goodbye

Saturday I'm spaced out
Did not sleep enough
What a week I faced
Had no time for love

Everything is fair
Stay away if you are in a bad mood
Everything is smooth
Stay away, you're bringing me down

Sunday I rest

FEISTY SCHOOLMARM

She was a feisty schoolmarm
She was a feisty schoolmarm
She was a feisty schoolmarm
She was a feisty schoolmarm

Paisley on acid
The incense was burning
Coloured lights
My friend wants to sing:

I brought my lunch and I climbed a tree
I brought my lunch because I had planned
To spend a long time in the tree
Well, when I got there, I was not alone
No, eh, Zdeiv was there
And Khrisce was there
And Ehrwynn was there
Oh, I didn't have enough lunch for them
And I had to sing
I sang:
Oh everyone, oh everyone
Oh everyone, here today

Well, they didn't like my song
So I had to climb down the tree
I still had my lunch
But on the way down the tree
One of the girls pinched my behind
And OHH it hurt
So I got down to the bottom
And who did I meet but a Frenchman
And he said, You'd better sing
And so I sang, Oh everybody is gone

I'M BORED

I'm gonna go right outta my mind
With nothin' to do all day
How could I waste such precious time
With nothin' to do but say
I'm bored

Ever since I got my first guitar
I don't have to tell you
I wanted to be a star
Many many years have passed behind

Ever since I got my first remark
I don't have to tell you
I wanted to be Mozart
Many many days have made me blind

Ever since I got my first romance
I don't have to tell you
The word that rhymes is 'dance'
Many many women have resigned

1983 r.stevie moore



THERE IS NO GOD IN AMERICA

Contrary to popular belief
There is no God in America
I've done extensive data research
And my findings prove there is nothing

So we are religionless
Void of spirit, yes
Religionless
Evidence of lies

Contrary to misunderstandings
There is no God existing in our world
I have discovered it's a sham
What they have promised just is not there now

So we are religionless
Void of spirit, yes
Religionless
Evidence of lies

Find him
Show me

Contrary to what theologians say
There is no savior in our society
I can disprove what they call facts
And show it's all make-believe bullshit

So we are religionless
Void of spirit, yes
Religionless
Evidence of lies

THE CRYSTAL CHANDELIER

Bright
Shiny
Elegant
Sparkling

The crystal chandelier
Up on the ceiling high
Will crash and fall on you
Unless you want it to

One of these days
There's gonna be a big banquet
Many rich people gather here
One of these nights
I may create a disater
Formal dress in a mess

One of these parties
Will be just perfect
Watch them serve champagne
One of these nights
The old sophisticates forfeit
Into the floor in pain

1984 r.stevie moore



STEVE

All the people in town are going to leave
They're departing because they're tired of Steve
Steve

Taking the interstate road
Trying to relocate load
If they could only believe in Steve

Steve is standing downtown and feeling alone
He decided to stay and answer the phone

No transportation today
Eternal vacation pay
If they could only believe in Steve

My acoustic guitar is strung out
Everybody I know is starting to shout

Sun is setting and Steve is stuck in the dark
He should begin again right from the start

Tragic the setting must be
Perishable, do not freeze
If they could only believe in Steve

1977 r.stevie moore




DEFEATING THE PURPOSE (live)

You don't mean anything to me
I don't need to see you to make my life complete
Forced friends, they're not real friends
Some kids fall in love with each other
They have best friends
But then they fight
Defeating the purpose
Some kids lose their friends

I SEE STARS

CQ-40

Well, every time in the morning
When I brush my wisdom teeth
And somehow the object slips
It forces my big tongue
To block my breathing
And I gag and heave and choke
And then I see stars

Every time I stop
What I am doing
And I turn the TV set on
Well, everybody tortures me
With fame and fortune
Bad entertainment breaks rules
Why do I see stars?

They don't see me
I see stars
Little flashes of light in my brain
They don't see me

Every time a magazine
Hits newsstands
There's somebody on the cover that you know
They never put a poor man
With bad teeth on it
They never give nobody a chance
To become movie stars

1984 r.stevie moore



WHO DESERVES IT?

Who deserves it?
Do I deserve it?
Who deserves it?

There must be someone I can find
Who has an answer
