ANDREW BIRD lyrics - Things Are Really Great Here, Sort Of...

Cathedral In The Dell

Original and similar lyrics
The cathedral in Cologne looks like a spaceship Like the hand of God falling from the sky A thousand stone carved saints hang like icicles But icicles don't take a thousand years to die And all of us who worked on this cathedral Or even spent a moment passing by All of us are swept away like breadcrumbs What comfort does it bring, soaring towers left behind Towers left behind Well there's a fiberglass castle in Wisconsin Where kids race go-karts around a moat Once we went up there in December When all the water slides and fudge shops were closed Looking to find love under the ice machine But all we did was drink in empty bars Stumbling drunk, we crawled back to our hotel room I fell against you, felt your beating heart I felt your beating heart Well the snow was slowly falling on the ice machine And the moon shone hazy through the pines Lawn chairs are thrown into an empty pool A dog chained to a tree, barking at the sky Towers left behind

Locomotive Man

JOHNNY CASH "More Of Old Golden Throat"
I got a gal in Dallas, I wave at when I go through I got a gal in Tulsa, that I toot my whistle to (Say how do) I got 'em all over the land, I'm a locomotive man Left my heart in Omaha Omaha, and I never did quite get it back I got a Sue in Sioux City, waitin' by the railroad track (Keeps her money in a 'tater sack) I got 'em all over the land, I'm a Locomotive man Well, I left a little switch engine, 'bout forty miles south of Bangor Maine Couldn't keep the wheels a turnin', shouldn't try to pull my train I got 'em all over the land, I'm a Locomotive man Well, I had a gal in Jackson, and it sure broke my heart to turn her loose When I checked my time and moved on, she's hooked on my caboose I got 'em all over the land, I'm a locomotive man

Pouring My Heart Out Again

GOLDEN EARRING "The Naked Thruth"
....well, well...George Kooymans is gonna pour his heart out again....... Another hour past midnight Moonshine through the skylight The bottle's empty and my mind is full of your ghost that keeps hauntin' this room And I can spend all my life Just sittin' here paralyzed And I could spend all my life Waitin' for you to materialize Love was the only thing I always felt for you Bigger than anything Baby I'd die for you Hold me cause I think I'm falling Like rain on a Monday morning And when it rains I'm pourin' my heart out again I can't remember, I can't forget I can't see, 'cause my eyes are wet The bottle's empty and it says: you fool How many tears do I spill for you I can spend all my life Just sittin' here paralyzed I could spend all my life Like a thorn of glass in your eye Love was the only thing I always felt for you Bigger than anything Baby I'd die for you now, hold me cause I think I'm falling Like rain on a Monday morning And when it rains I'm pourin' my heart out again

Broken Heart Attack

JERRY REED "Alabama Wild Man"
I seen your clothes were missin' when I looked into the closet I saw the goodbye note ya left me on the kitchen faucet The family car was missin' and the furniture was gone You didn't even leave a towel for me to do my cryin' on After losing you this way I'll never be the same You left me with a broken heart and cryin' with the pain Of a broken heart attack a broken heart attack An emotional thrombosis in my coronary sac The pain got in my veins and made the capillaries crack Causing traumatic fibrillations in the respiratory sac There ain't no doubt about it gal my train done jumped the track Losin' you done made me have a broken heart attack Oh the pain oh it's intense Well I went screamin' to my family doctor clutchin' to my chest Said the pain inside's intense doc what do you suggest Well son let's have an examination take your shirt off He put his stethoscope up to my chest said let me hear ya cough Well upon examination boy all I can say to you It's my professional opinion ain't nothin' I can do You've had a broken heart attack a broken heart attack An emotional thrombosis in your coronary sac The pain got in your veins and made the capillaries crack Causing traumatic fibrillations in your respiratory sac There ain't no doubt about it boy your train done leaped the track That woman left and you done had a broken heart attack Oh the pain oh it's intense friend

Soma

SMASHING PUMPKINS "Siamese Dream"
Nothing left to say And all I've left to do Is run away From you And she led me on, down With secrets I can't keep Close your eyes and sleep Don't wait up for me Hush now don't you speak To me Wrapped my hurt in you And took my shelter in that pain The opiate of blame Is your broken heart, your heart So now I'm all by myself As I've always felt I'll betray my tears To anyone caught in our ruse of fools One last kiss from me...yeah One last kiss good night Didn't want to lose you once again Didn't want to be your friend Fulfilled a promise made of tin And crawled back to you I'm all by myself As I've always felt I'll betray myself To anyone, lost, anyone but you So let the sadness come again On that you can depend on me, yeah Until the bitter, bitter end of the world, yeah When god sleeps in bliss And I'm all by myself As I've always felt And I'll betray myself To anyone
