Handsome Family lyrics

Cathedrals

Original and similar lyrics
the Cathedral in Cologne looks like a spaceship like the hand of God falling from the sky a 1000 stone-carved saints hang like icicles but icicles don't take 1000 years to die and everyone who ever worked on this Cathedral or even spent a moment walking by everyone of us is swept away like breadcrumbs what comfort does it bring, soaring towers left behind there's a fiberglass castle in Wisconsin where kids race go-karts around a moat once we went up there in December when every waterslide and fudgeshoop was closed hoping to feel love under the icicles all we did was drink in an empty bar but stumbling drunk we crawled back to our motel room and I fell against you and felt your beating heart snow was slowly falling on the ice machine and the moon shone hazy through the pines but there were lounge chairs thrown into the empty pool and a dog chained to a tree barking at the sky

Princess

Paolo Santos
the walls of my castle speak they tell me that you're not here the heart of my kingdom weeps knowing you're nowhere near give me one more chance to prove my love is forever true but you're miles away, so far away hoping that you would stay my princess has left me i am so empty, i'm all alone my princess has left me i have nobody to call my own sitting in my own room humming a lonely tune staring up at the moon wondering if you'd be home soon have i done you wrong that you went away would do anything just to make you stay thinking of you through day and night wanting to make things right

Dead On The Floor

ALKALINE TRIO "This Addiction"
Like two ships in the night, We're colliding and sinking, Into the black sea of our love. We navigated past the point of logical thinking, Lost sight of the stars up above. Now my heart is a mess. Murder scene in my chest, Not a clue how you got through the door. But I'm glad that you came, No regret and no shame, As I'm lying here dead on the floor. I took a blind leap of faith, That's now crashing and burning, With my heart fast asleep in your bed. I got on the ground safe But with my insides turning, And a picture of you in my head. As I wandered away deep in shock and dismay, In a daze, just repeating your name. Well the fact of the matter is both our hearts Shatter way too goddamn easily When you asked me if I'd stay forever, Guess you meant just for the week. We felt so good together, It was way too good to be. When I left you there early that morning, My darling, I told you that I'd miss you so. I got on that plane with my heart soaring, But now it's falling like snow. And like two ships in the night. We're colliding and sinking, Into the black sea of our love. We navigated past the point of logical thinking, Lost sight of the stars up above. Now my heart is a mess. Murder scene in my chest, Not a clue how you got through the door. But I'm glad that you came, No regret and no shame, As I'm lying here dead on the floor. When you asked me if I'd stay forever, Guess you meant just for the week. We felt so good together, It was way too good to be. When I left you there early that morning, My darling, I told you that I'd miss you so, I got on that plane with my heart soaring, But now it's falling like snow. Now it's falling like snow. Now it's falling like snow. And now it's falling like snow.

Great Society Conflict Veteran's Blues

JOHN PRINE
Sam Stone came home, To his wife and family After serving in the conflict overseas. And the time that he served, Had shattered all his nerves, And left a little shrapnel in his knee. But the morphine eased the pain, And the grass grew round his brain, And gave him all the confidence he lacked, With a Purple Heart and a monkey on his back. [Chorus:] There's a hole in daddy's arm where all the money goes, Jesus Christ died for nothin' I suppose. Little pitchers have big ears, Don't stop to count the years, Sweet songs never last too long on broken radios. Mmm.... Sam Stone's welcome home Didn't last too long. He went to work when he'd spent his last dime And Sammy took to stealing When he got that empty feeling For a hundred dollar habit without overtime. And the gold rolled through his veins Like a thousand railroad trains, And eased his mind in the hours that he chose, While the kids ran around wearin' other peoples' clothes... [Chorus] Sam Stone was alone When he popped his last balloon Climbing walls while sitting in a chair Well, he played his last request While the room smelled just like death With an overdose hovering in the air But life had lost its fun And there was nothing to be done But trade his house that he bought on the G. I. Bill For a flag draped casket on a local heroes' hill. [Chorus]

Is It You

BLUE RODEO "Lost Together"
Is it you I wonder And still it makes me laugh Is it you That I'm looking for Don't turn away so fast And while you were talking Wide-eyed I fell asleep Hoping tomorrow would be As sweet Is it you Who whispered Into my hazy soul Is it you Who makes the flowers bloom On the tenement windowsill In a hotel room A TV glows And songs are exchanged Drunkenly chasing the ghost Of eternity There's a drunk on the sidewalk Trying to look unconcerned And the dead eyed motel blondes Wait in line for their turn Is it you Who laughs When all the other dogs snarl Is it you Just because you listened for a while And with this buzz of electricity Still ringing in my ears I wonder Is it you I wonder Is it you

Imperia

FOUNTAINS OF WAYNE
Imperia The day you drew your final breath And parted from the Earth Is carved into the stone that bears your name And date of birth Oooooooooo...Imperia Oooooooooo...Imperia He was leaning over you with flowers And his hand Trying through the years to see the heart Inside the man Oooooooooo...Imperia Oooooooooo...Imperia
