Lyrics

Masquerades / a twisted phrase

The strangest things turn into fact

A story true but not exact

 

Flashing back / off the track

I go walking sideways through my mind

And you never know what I will find

 

Sorta, kinda, maybe, I don’t know

Sorta, kinda, maybe, well, here we go

To questions on the way / but I love you today

 

We cut the rain / on 5th and Main

Throwing laughs like wedding rice

Taking home a smile at any price

 

Sorta, kinda, maybe, I don’t know

Sorta, kinda, maybe, well, here we go

To questions on the way / but I love you today

Here we go, to questions by the way / but I love you today

 

Sorta, kinda, maybe, I don’t know

Sorta, kinda, maybe, I don’t know

Lyrics

She rolled her window down with elegant fingers

Let out a laugh like bubble gum

She asked directions, I set the course

Then I forgot where I came from

 

She said, “I thought I’d take a drive out to the Salton Sea;

I don’t fit in here in Palm Springs.”

I claimed coincidence, “I’m headed there myself.

I heard it looks like bathtub ring.”

 

Strawberry Smile / made the desert bloom

A smoky room / a heart balloon

Strawberry smile a sonic boom / yeah,yeah,yeah,yeah,yeah

Strawberry smile

 

She took me ‘round a corner I didn’t know I’d turned

She told me everything without a word

 

Tricks in my empty pocket, up my ragged sleeve

Were like a card blown in the breeze

She put ‘em in her locket, opened up to me

Made me feel like Christmas Eve

 

Strawberry Smile / made the desert bloom

A smoky room / a heart balloon

Strawberry smile a sonic boom / yeah,yeah,yeah,yeah,yeah

Strawberry smile

Lyrics

(Musical prelude by P.Bordelon)

She pulled outside the house / in a brand-new moving van

Driven by some caveman / she said, “Baby, meet the next best man.”

 

“I’ll keep the bank accounts, you take the ’88 sedan

I’ll be out in Spokane / So, bye, bye, baby, you’re the next best man.”

 

Who, what, when, where, how, and why

Ain’t that hard to classify

 

I might not be name brand / I might be Peter Pan

Might be second-hand / but you might like the next best man

 

I might be Peter Pan / might be second hand

But you might like the next best man

Lyrics

everywhere and everything

summer, winter, fall, and spring

you ask me where I want to go

you ask me what I want to know

you ask me what I want to sing

everywhere and everything

 

everywhere and everything

has a certain kind of ring

kind of like an old game show

like spaceships in New Mexico

you know what waking up will bring

everywhere and everything

 

everywhere and everything

could end up on my left shoestring

Horton thought he heard a Who

it could be me, it could be you

we're just a bunch of static cling

on everywhere and everything

Lyrics

Picked up a racing form / bet on a broken horse

So slow I think he went backwards

Long and lean like a Cadillac / she pulled me off the discount rack

Said, “Man, you got a lot to learn.”

 

She closed her eyes and placed a finger / We won on Royal Serenade

She said, “Take it back, your life ain’t so black and white.”

She made my night a painted sky


She took me home and then / as she wrote her thoughts in pen

I knew it was too late to turn

She sang an old love song / I tried to sing along

Even though I did not know the words

 

We flew our thoughts like paper airplanes / She filled my pockets up with omens

I said, “Gimme a sign, I’ll make it mine tonight.”

She made my dreams a painted sky

 “Gimme a sign, a butterfly, oh, my!”

Drifting through a painted sky

Lyrics

I woke up drunk and early

in the Chalk-outline Motel

She brought me beer and flowers

I guessed her name was Isabel

 

I asked her, “Am I still in New York City?”

She asked me when I joined the NFL

I said I had a game that day in Cleveland

Oh, the stories that we tell

The stories that we tell

 

She said I looked too young to be a Beatle

I thanked her for the compliment

I told her Rubber Soul was mostly my songs

She never asked for any evidence (beep, beep, ‘n, beep, beep)

 

“Don’t you have to get yourself to Cleveland?”

She shook me back awake by my lapel

It’s hard to get a plane from Nova Scotia

Oh, the stories that we tell

The stories that we tell

The stories that we tell

Lyrics

Just a little while ago / I almost lost the dawn

Blackbird on a lonely wire was waiting / But my mind was gone

 

Ever get the feeling you’re driving away from all you know

The rear-view tears at you / the pull of the undertow

 

and the people recede

into the too-huge world in calico

And you know it’s time for letting go

It’s time for letting go
