Movin’ to the country,
gonna eat a lot of peaches
Movin’ to the country,
gonna eat me a lot of peaches
Movin’ to the country,
gonna eat a lot of peaches
Movin’ to the country,
gonna eat a lot of peaches

Peaches come from a can,
they were put there by a man
In a factory downtown
If I had my little way,
I’d eat peaches every day
Sun-soakin’ bulges in the shade

Take a little nap where the roots all twist
Squished a rotten peach in my fist
And dreamed about you, woman,
I poked my finger down inside
Make a little room for an ant to hide
Nature’s candy in my hand or can or a pie

Millions of peaches, peaches for me
Millions of peaches, peaches for free

Look out!

-Peaches by The Presidents of the USA

I have your good clothes in the car
So cut your hair so no one knows
I have your dreams and your teeth marks
And all my fingernails are painted

I’m here to take you now

You were right about the end
It didn’t make a difference
Everything I can remember 
I remember wrong

How can anybody know 
How they got to be this way
You must have known I’d do this someday
Break my arms around the one I love
And be forgiven by the time my lover comes
Break my arms around my love

Break my arms around the one I love
And be forgiven by the time my lover comes
Break my arms around my love

I don’t have any questions
I don’t think it’s gonna rain
You were right about the end
It didn’t make a difference

I’m here to take you now

Out among the missing sons and daughters of the SoHo riots
Out among the missing sons and daughters of the SoHo riots

I’m here to take you now

How can anybody know
how they got to be this way
You must have known I’d do this someday
Break my arms around the one I love
And be forgiven by the time my lover comes
Break my arms around my love

Break my arms around the one I love
And be forgiven by the time my lover comes
Break my arms around my love

-The National: Daughters of the SoHo Riots

Paperclips, melody
Hold together all these memories
Memories
Memories
I don’t wanna think at all

I don’t wanna be like you anymore
I don’t wanna see your face at my door
And I’ll never leave like you, that’s for sure
I don’t wanna be like you anymore, anymore, anymore

Take a trip, down memory lane
You will never wanna go again
Take your leave
Take your leave
I don’t wanna sing at all

I don’t wanna be like you anymore
I don’t wanna see your face at my door
And I’ll never leave like you, that’s for sure
I don’t want to live like you anymore, anymore, anymore

Ever talk, decide out
We get by, we’ll get by
And I won’t take this
No more sadness, no, no

Paperclips, memories
Hold together all these melodies
Melodies
Melodies
I don’t want to sing at all

I don’t want to be like you anymore
I don’t want to see your face at my door
And I’ll never leave like you, that’s for sure
I don’t want to live like you anymore, anymore, anymore

One of my favorite JLA moments.

Love Will Come Through

If I told you a secret
You won’t tell a soul
Will you hold it and keep it alive
Cause it’s burning a hole
And I can’t get to sleep
And I can’t live alone in this lie

So look up
Take it away
Don’t look da-da-da- down the mountain

If the world isn’t turning
Your heart won’t return
Anyone, anything, anyhow

So take me don’t leave me
Take me don’t leave me
Baby, love will come through it’s just waiting for you

Well I stand at the crossroads
Of highroads and lowroads
And I got a feeling it’s right

If it’s real what I’m feeling
There’s no makebelieving
The sound of the wings of the flight of a dove

Take it away
Don’t look da-da-da down the mountain
If the world isn’t turning 
Your heart won’t return anyone anything anyhow…

So take me don’t leave me
Take me don’t leave me
Baby, love will come through it’s just waiting for you

So look up
Take it away
Don’t look da-da-da- down

If the world isn’t turning 
Your heart won’t return anyone anything anyhow…

So take me don’t leave me
Take me don’t leave me
Baby, love will come through it’s just waiting for you

Love will come through

My body is a cage that keeps me 
From dancing with the one I love 
But my mind holds the key

My body is a cage that keeps me 
From dancing with the one I love 
But my mind holds the key

I’m standing on a stage
Of fear and self-doubt
It’s a hollow play
But they’ll clap anyway

My body is a cage that keeps me 
From dancing with the one I love 
But my mind holds the key

You’re standing next to me
My mind holds the key

I’m living in an age
That calls darkness light
Though my language is dead
Still the shapes fill my head

I’m living in an age
Whose name I don’t know
Though the fear keeps me moving 
Still my heart beats so slow

My body is a cage that keeps me 
From dancing with the one I love 
But my mind holds the key

You’re standing next to me
My mind holds the key
My body is a

My body is a cage 
We take what we’re given
Just because you’ve forgotten 
That don’t mean you’re forgiven

I’m living in an age
That screams my name at night
But when I get to the doorway
There’s no one in sight

My body is a cage that keeps me 
From dancing with the one I love 
But my mind holds the key

You’re standing next to me
My mind holds the key

Set my spirit free
Set my spirit free
Set my body free

-Well when I think of home, I… I think of something specific. I think of my, my hammock in the backyard or my wife pruning the rosebushes in a pair of my old work gloves.

-Tell me about your wife and those rosebushes? 

-No, no that one I save just for me.

-I feel like this is, uh, some dream world we’re in, y’know. -Yeah, it’s so weird. It’s like our time together is just ours. It’s our own creation. It must be like I’m in your dream, and you in mine, or something. -And what’s so cool is that this whole evening, all our time together, shouldn’t officially be happening. -Yeah, I know. Maybe that’s why this feels so otherworldly.
