Once you had a dream of oceans, sunken cities memories
Of things you've never known
You have never known

SHE JUST WANTS TO BE

From: stipewiggledance@hotmail.com (Peter Carroll)

e-3-0---3-0----0-|
b-----1----1-3-0-|

Haven't got the words yet but heres the chords
   Am      F           Am
Its not that she wasnt rewarded..........

    Am       F          C        Em

Bridge: F  G F  G


Chorus: Am       C          G
        She just wants to be somewhere
        Am       C          G
        She just wants to be


Lyrics:

It's not that she walked away,
her world got smaller.
All the usual places, the same destinations,
only something's changed.

It's not that she wasn't rewarded
with pomegranate afternoons
and Mingus, Chet Baker and chess.

It's not the stampede and fortune
of prim affectations
she's off on a right and she knows now
it's greater than the whole
of the past
it's greater
and now she knows.

She just wants to be somewhere
she just wants to be.
She just wants to be somewhere
she just wants to be.

It's not that the transparency
of earlier incarnations
now we're back on, we're enriched
and loaded
with beautiful vulnerability
and now she knows.

Now is greater
and she knows that.


She just wants to be somewhere
she just wants to be.
She just wants to be somewhere
she just wants to be.

Now is greater
now is greater
and she knows that

She just wants to be somewhere
she just wants to be.
She just wants to be somewhere
she just wants to be.

It's not like the angels
could truly look down
stir up the trappings
and light on the ground.
Remind us of what, when,
why or who?
The how's up to us, me and you
and now is greater than the whole
of the past
is greater and now she knows that.

Now she knows.
DISAPPEAR

Am
I dragged my feet across the seat
Jumped out the passenger side
The only thing worth looking for
Is what you find inside

C          Bm     Am
But that had not yet appeared

Am
Lost invisible here.
Tel Aviv and Agadir
Toned in for almost
Before I learned to see

C     Bm     Am
The vanishing point appeared.

G     D     C     Bm     Em
I looked for you everywhere.

G     D     C     Bm     Em
I looked for you everywhere.

Am
There is a calm, I haven't come to the end
I spent half my life figuring what comes next
I telescoped in I finally win
I finally win the prize.

C     Bm     Am
That now eyes see comets perfect timing squeeze

Am
Head first fighting everything
The crushing force of memory
Erasing all i've been

C     Bm     Am
The vanishing point appeared.

G     D     C     Bm     Em
I looked for you everywhere.

G     D     C     Bm     Em
I looked for you everywhere.

G     D     C     Bm     Em
Tell me why you're here

G     D     C     Bm     Em
I came to disappear.

G, F, Em, D
G, F, Em


Am
Look at this face
Can you believe it?
Am I living in the beautiful vacuum?
Because I can't see it

C     Bm     Am
The vanishing point appears.

G     D     C     Bm     Em
I looked for you everywhere.

G     D     C     Bm     Em
I looked for you everywhere.

G     D     C     Bm     Em
Tell me why you're here.

G     D     C     Bm     Em
I came to disappear

G     D     C     Bm     Em
Tell me why you're here

G     D     C     Bm     Em
I came to disappear

G     D     C     Bm     Em
I came to disappear


SATURN RETURNS

Easy to poke yourself square in the eye
Harder to like yourself, harder to try
These are espouses
Postcards and neoprene
Roses a dollar a stem
Everyone’s sleeping or pulling the long haul and
Keys in the cooler its three A.M.

And Saturn is beckoning no one
It’s off on its own
It’s offering up

Late shift can bring in store, burn out the lights
Telescope roof towards the northwestern sky
You pulled the ladder and no one's the wiser
You find your sights and discover

Saturn is orbiting nothing
He’s off on its own
He’s breaking from home

Harder to look yourself square in the eye
Easy to take off

You found the ladder in the pattern of your wrist
You’ve seen and you’ve marked horizons
Mother was difficult, she made you cry
Cover the mirror, look to the sky
You climbed into your rocketship trying
Lift up and hold out your hands

Saturn is orbiting nothing
He’s off on its own
He’s breaking from home

Saturn is orbiting nothing
He’s off on its own
He’s breaking from home

Saturn returns when you chase down, it slows
Throw them into a new gravity
Harder to look yourself square in the eye
Easy to poke yourself, easy as pie
Easy to take off, harder to fly
Harder to wake Galileo

Mercury is rising still
Turn the fan on high

I won't step on my own shadow
No one wants to cry.

Someone put a pox on me
I spit in their eyes
Summer turns to high.

Lift my bed sheet keep in sandles
Circle search and there are candles
Summer's here but night is raising hopes and dragonflies

If those hopes are overshadowed
cotton-candy, caramel-wafer.

Summer turns to high
Summer turns to high
Summer turns to high
Summer high

After wine and nectarines the fireflies in turn
Move like syrup through the evening with the sweet resign
I won't fight for can't happen
I'm preoccupied

Summer turns to high
Summer turns to high
Summer turns to high
Summer high.

There seems to be at least 2 guitars, a clean electric panned
left and an acoustic panned right. They seem to be playing
slightly different variations on the same chords.

Verse chords (listen to LP for timing):

E--0-----5---|
B--2-----3---|
G--0-----0---|
D--2-----4---|
A--0-----5---|
E------------|

Sometimes substitute Dsus2 for the Sugar Mtn D.


Or the electric sometimes plays this chord:

E--5--
B--3--
G--2--
D--0--
A-----
E-----


chorus:

E--0---0-|
B--3---3-|
G--2---0-|
D--0---4-|
A------5-|
E------0-|

bridge:

E--3--              --0--|
B--3--              --0--|
G--0-- for three    --0--|
D--0-- bars, then:  --2--| back into A7/D verse
A--2--              --2--|
E--3--              --0--|

after the 3rd chorus, the electric plays this:

E------0-------5----|
B--------2---3---3--|
G----------0--------| repeat while acoustic plays
D----2--------------| A7/D rhythm chords...
A--0----------------|
E-------------------|

end on A7.

Lyrics:

hey there now young one
you swing alone, quote the scriptures,
keep them guessing which bed you crawled from

justify, just deny
was it fun?
your time has come
what have you done?
what have you done?

that's when the insults start to sting
you can't remember anything
the chorus chiming
every chorus the machine of God
singin'.

it's the poison that it measures
brings illuminating vision
it's the knowing with the wink
that we expect in Southern women

it's the wolf that knows which trip to dip to save its soul
it's the octopus that crawled back to the sea.

that's when the insults start to sting
you can't remember anything
the chorus chiming
every chorus the machine of God
hey.....

hammered, shooting plywood in the backyard
laughing 'cause the racket makes the blackbird sing
like the holy terror
suck the marrow from the bone
since you're always burning books
you got the chorus and the ring

that's when the insults start to sting
you can't remember anything
the chorus chiming
every chorus the machine sings.

that's when the insults start to sting
you can't remember anything
the chorus chiming
every chorus the machine sings.

that's when the calibration brittle
as a stick hits you
the gold ring in the time museum
cheaper than a link
gold ring
gold ring.

sing.
sing.
sing.
sing.

Tonight's alive
The beachball is set to fly
Those well-tequilla-guzzled smiles of strangers.

I ____________
I ____________
You give a little sneeze and dance the rhu-rhu-rhu-rhu-rhumba

This life is sweet.
You're dancin' in the street.
Who knows who we might meet?
You're too fine.

The little weekend's here.
Thursday has an ear.
Her coffee-clash career, she talks to strangers.

And kissing by the sea.
Particular to me.
Tea ___________ sing and dance the rhu-rhu-rhu-rhu-rhumba.

This life is sweet.
You're dancin' in the street.
Who knows who, you and me
You're too fine.

We flash the seaside sky
with starfish butterflies
to cast a spell and
welcome locals
weekenders and strangers.

You're too fine.
You're too fine.
You're too fine.
