I LAUGHED AT JOKES THAT WERE NOT FUNNY WORE MY RAINCOAT WHEN IT WAS SUNNY LOST MY KEYS ONE NIGHT, DRUNK AS HELL SPENT SOME TIME IN MY STAIRWELL SHORT BUT SWEET, WAIT AND SEE. IT GOES SO SLOW, NO - IT JUST GOES. I FILLED MY NAILS WITH FOOD AND DIRT WHEN IT WAS COLD I WORE FIVE SHIRTS HAMMERED DAYS ‘TIL THEY WERE FLAT KEPT CRAZY THINGS DOWN IN MY HAT SHORT BUT SWEET, WAIT AND SEE. IT GOES SO SLOW, NO - IT JUST GOES. EVERY TIME I HAVE TO CHOOSE DESPERATE, AFRAID TO LOSE TELL ME WHAT IS IT, PUSHES ME ON SETS ME FREE, BUT THEN IS GONE… A RIVER ROSE THROUGH MY BACK YARD I SAT AND WATCHED, IT WAS NOT HARD EVERYTHING WAS WASHED AWAY NEW THINGS GROW THERE TODAY SHORT BUT SWEET, WAIT AND SEE. IT GOES SO SLOW, NO - IT JUST GOES.

It's so not-rock Really just a seed Too early to be sure It's not a beautiful weed Lookin' at you last night In the dark The miles that we've travelled Didn't seem very far CHORUS: Starting small Building windows in the walls Winter wakes when the first leaf gets brown and falls Starting small You're so un-punk A little sparrow in the dawn Opening one eye Stretching and you're gone Talking to you tonight On the phone Add another feather To The Wing of Not-Alone Chorus Little boombox speakers One eye and the moon Just a kind of feeling In the middle of our room Sleeping with you last night Silver beams And now another morning A garden and some seeds

DAN SILVER’S PICTURE’S ON MY REFRIGERATOR HELD THERE BY A MAGNET THAT ADVERTISES POWER IN THE PICTURE SILVER ALMOST SMILES ON THE SNOWY STREET WHERE WE WERE PARTING WAYS DAN SILVER ALMOST SMILED WHEN WE SAT WITH COFFEE ARPEGGIATING ON OUR NEW ACOUSTICS HIS FADED T-SHIRT STATED “NEIL YOUNG SUCKS” AND SO WE’D BEND LIGHTNIN’ HOPKINS OR LITTLE FEAT THERE WERE A COUPLE MORE DAN SILVER EPISODES SITTING IN AT LUKE’S OR IN THE WOODS NEAR EUGENE HE PLAYED HIS STRAT WITH POWER, SUBLIMATING SADNESS, HE POSED FOR ONE MORE PICTURE, ALMOST SMILING Chorus: IN EVERY KITCHEN WE REMEMBER. REFRIGERATOR MEMORIALS. WE REACH FOR ICE CREAM, THEY’RE ALMOST SMILING. SOMETIMES A PICTURE OF SOME OLD DOG… MY GIRLFRIEND’S UNCLE MIKE SMOKES A CIGARETTE STANDING ON THE MOON OR SOME DRY RIVER CANCER TOOK HIM AND MY FRIEND DAN SILVER A BOWL OF CHEERIOS CRIES OUT FOR MILK…

SOME ARE GHOSTS OF THINGS WE’VE SEEN. SOME ARE MIDNIGHT MEMORIES. A FLOCK OF THEM IN WATER CAN KILL A ROOM OR SAVE A MAN… MAY YOUR BIRDS OF PARADISE WAKE YOU WITH FLOWERS AT THE END OF THE NIGHT. AFTERNOON BRINGS SHADOWS OF THE KIND THAT DARE YOU TO CROSS THEIR LINES. SILOUHETTES THAT PIERCE THE DUSK A BIRD IN HAND, BOTH KINDS OF LUCK MAY YOUR BIRDS OF PARADISE BE JUST AS GOOD IN BLACK AND WHITE Bridge HUMMINGBIRDS WON’T STAND STILL ROSES SUFFER FROM OVERKILL THE HARVEST MOON STILL WORKS ALRIGHT, BUT IT’S ONLY USEFUL ON OCTOBER NIGHTS MESSAGES OF LOVE CAN BE HARD TO SEND AND RECEIVE BIRDS OF PARADISE COME INTO PLAY IF AND WHEN YOU WANT TO SAY DO YOU WANT TO SAY - WE ARE A JUNGLE BABY, NO TREES IN SIGHT JUST MILES OF BIRDS OF PARADISE

SOMEONE TO SOFTEN ALL THE BLOWS DRESS YOU IN SERVICEABLE CLOTHES BATHE YOU IN THE LUNAR GLOW WHEN THE NIGHT HAS MADE YOU BLIND SOMEONE SPECIFIC? WHO’D YOU HAVE IN MIND? MAGNIFIES THE SUMMER STARS PUTS IN YOUR HAND WHAT ONCE WAS FAR MAKES YOU SURE JUST WHO YOU ARE WHEN THE DAY LEAVES YOU BEHIND SOMEONE SPECIFIC? WHO’D YOU HAVE IN MIND? LIE WITH YOU IN MORNING SUN MAKE YOU FORGET YOUR NEED TO RUN YOU KNOW THAT ONE IS THE ONE WHEN YOU WAKE ONE DAY TO FIND SOMEONE SPECIFIC WHO’D YOU HAVE IN MIND?
