This Song 02:16
I wrote this song to say How much I love this song This is the song I wrote this song I love this song This very song right now This is the song I love Inspired by this song I wrote this song I love this song And when I think about songs This is the song That comes to my head Now for the chorus of this song: I love this song

My lover, yoked in furs, choked in feathers I have learned, I’ve inferred He’s not for you, he is for me I stand, hand outstretched, ropes of metal around my neck I’ve been led to expect he is for me We’re here with our dog He and the painter are talking shop Hope he catches the fall of the cloth the shade of green My lover here with me One hand blessing, one outreached I can see he is for me, he is for me

One note from a bird Better than a million words Likely a commotion ruminate Exciting! I feel at home Oh that I had wings like a dove For then would I fly away And be at rest Waterfall Grasped by God

Stop being so melodramatic Garfield, you’ve only been on your diet for ten minutes Mmm, food! I love food! Garfield, your eating is out of control More food! Garfield, your eating is out of control! Looks like you’re eating the entire world! Eating it, eating it, eating it, eating it, eating it More trainloads of food! Airdrop food into my mouth! More cattle! Hurry! I am hungry! Oh, dessert—Jupiter, Neptune and Saturn Seems I have eaten the entire universe Garfield, your eating is out of control! Looks like you’ve eaten the entire world! Eating it, eating it, eating it, eating it, eating it

Glancing backward where there once was a door Follow the memory—know you’ve been here before Is this something new, or has it always been? Start to understand and see it to the end Connect every point with a straight line Straight lines collide Compose your own shape with each new line New lines decide Each step closer—another voice to be heard All of these lines and all of them blurred

There's a tombstone I see Every time I cross 9th East One word stands visible to me It's my last name, and says where I'll yet be Let me hear you sing And feel a feeling that I only Feel when I’m awake It's someone who's alive today Let me hear you sing Sing me a song please Before I'm gone Please let me hear you sing

Is it real? The sun, the peaks, the woods? A place that I never understood Showers of light, paint strokes of lies Could it be another kind of miracle? Could it be real? A tree so green, a deer serene an out-of-this-worldy scene, his fantasy Would you believe he came across it naturally? Would you believe? A note he wrote from The Hudson River School, it’s ok if none of it’s real it’s ok if none of it’s real it’s ok if none of it’s real Would you believe? Could it be real?

Walked the bad streets of New York for three weeks Never got offered nothing, but Newsweek Front covers were littered, with new speak some double-plus-ungood Crimethinkin' thinkpiece Got some dumplings and found me a park bench Saw a dad and his daughter, just playing catch Heard a worker explode at his torque wrench I smelled Texaco gas through the mesh fence

Paris Night 05:30
Only the lonely remember the sky Of a Paris night Of a Paris night So swirling and twirling he painted the stars Of the Paris Night On a Paris night Maybe he saw them through his teardrops And caught some impression of the truth That blazing and burning So high above, They were lonely too. She took a chance Came to France to find love On a Paris night To share a Paris night. She smiles while she strolls beside the Sacre Couer. And ambling through Musee Dorsay too. But she feels the pain within the paint-strokes they all call beautiful.   For who needs the starry starry skies? If all the light that fills your life Shines from a lover's eyes? So only the lonely look up at the sky Of a Paris Night.
