[instrumental]


. . .



I'll be the madness that carries you away
I'll be the sadness to light your darkest day
I'll be the desert island where you can be free
I'll be the vulture you can catch and eat

Desert island
Love is all around
Desert island
Where you can laugh aloud
Desert island
Everywhere's a beach
Desert island
That's what I wanna be

We'll develop muscles
From cracking coconuts
Let our clothing drop off
Feel each other's butts
Start a better country
Where we can get things done
Make a fortune turning
LyricsSand to silicon

Desert island
Love is all around
Desert island
Where you can laugh aloud
Desert island
Everywhere's a beach
Desert island
That's where I wanna be

While we're still holding on
Counting days until we're gone
Can we spend some time alone
In our free love zone

Desert island...


. . .



you didn't have to say that I'm no good
'cause I know
there's no point pointing pistols at me now, I'll just go
I never should have asked you to be kind, but I'm slow

I'm sorry, but how can I get to you
stuck in my fifty-pound lead boots
stuck in my deep sea diving suit?

I never thought you'd turn on me
'cause you're my best friend
you say I never offered you a thing in the end
and now you wouldn't trust me with a grain of sand


. . .



on the ferris wheel, looking out on coney island
under more stars than there are prostitues in thailand
our hair in the air, our lips blue from cotton candy
when we kiss it feels like a flying saucer landing.

and i can't sleep cause you got strange powers.
you're in my dreams, strange powers.

in Las Vegas where the electric bills are straggring.
the decor hog wild and the entertainment saccharin. what a golden age, what a time of right and reason. the consumers king and unhappyness is treason.

and i can't sleep cause you got strange powers.
you're in my dreams, strange powers.

the sun falls down like money.
the moon pours down like mercury.
the stars fall down like money.
and you come down to me.

and i can't sleep cause you got strange powers.
you're in my dreams, strange powers.


. . .



you know the rain is gone
when the sky is full of dust
and the tears are gone
when your eyes are red as rust
and it just rains because it can
and you just cry until you can't

but I can feel my courage crumbling
and my heart just turns to ice
when I see myself reflected
in your torn green velvet eyes

you know the night is gone
when the sunlight burns your eyes
you know the cold is gone
when the room is full of flies

and it's all a waste of time
if you try to change your mind


. . .



I saw you standing at the airport
With your chihuahua in your hand
Crying on the moving sidewalk
On your way to Disneyland

And the flowers she sent and the flowers she said she sent
Are all equally dead
You don't care anymore, she said
And the books she read and the books that she said she read
Are all spread on the floor
You don't care about them anymore

I saw you closing your antique shop
With a boa 'round your throat
And you tremble like an ostrich
In your ostrich feather coat

And the flowers she sent and the flowers she said she sent
Are all equally dead
You don't care anymore, she said
And the books she read and the books that she said she read
Are all spread on the floor
You don't care about them anymore


. . .



I read your manifestoes and your strange religious tracts. You took me to your library and kissed me in the stacks.

Planets crash, the goes nova, sun explodes, alll goes black. You went off swinging London and forgot to come back.

You couldn't grok my racecar but you dug the roadside blur you weren't into my airplane but you loved the whirling world.

Planets crash, the world goes nova, sun explodes, all goes black. You went off swinging London and forgot to come back.

Baby come back.


. . .



time swings like a wrecking ball into things
youth fades as quickly as a hit parade

but as the days go by in the gray world outside
days grow on colorful trees in my secret place

they'll sell you tickets for their carousel
don't pay - they'll get your money either way

you can go up and go down
you can go 'round and 'round
but there's a better fairground


. . .



the saddest brown eyes I'll ever know
you gave up crying so long ago
but come outside and watch the snow softly falling

sad little moon in the big black sky
all alone, hang your head and cry
sad little moon in the timeless night
you may sleep but you will never die

you didn't need them, your Sunday friends
and so you watched them like grains of sand
running one by one out of your hands
softly falling...


. . .



crows in trees
spanish hotels by the sea
we wave goodbye
airplanes draw swords in the sky

I'm so rich and you're so bored
are you the trouble I've been looking for?
you go out and you slam the door
are you the trouble I've been looking for?

my eyes still burn
whether you leave or you return
the flowers bloom
when you walk into the room

you stole it all
and wrote my name on a wall
I've moved again
I've changed my name again


. . .



please forgive me
for all the things I've done
sugar, give me the love I need to carry on
living without you, I'd just die
with you, I can hold my head up high
and tell the crowd that I'm so proud
it makes me want to cry

sugar world of you
sugar world, what can I do?
sugar world, you're so sweet
you're a sugar world to me
you're champagne or ruhr wine
will you make up your mind?
you're lemon or you're lime
you're pecan or praline
you're sky bar or cloud nine

sugar, save me
come on, save me from myself
enslave me
I never wanted anything else

looking into your candy eyes
talking talking about the day
when I can make a vow
but that's not now
it makes me want to cry


. . .



sad as a painted clown
a beautiful boy in an ugly town
but when your circus closes down
don't walk away from me
you've been asleep too long
the birds are bruises in the dawn
the pounds of flesh between us stretch as far as you can see

but all you ever do is walk away
and I know if you'd only go slow
you could see what it means
to be making the scene with me
but all you ever do is walk away
and I think if you tried
you could find a little time
for the life I can see in your eyes
don't go

sometimes you just explode
and no one alive can break your code
you have a language of your own
an unconnected road
the people you called your friends
the places you won't go again
the decades lost in finding them
you'll have to let them go


. . .



you were mean to me and broke my heart
now you've gone away, we're apart
but I've got a special machine to take me
where things turned out differently
and you still care

I'm in my car
I'm taking a ride to somewhere inside
where you never left and I never cried
at the speed of light in my car
never comin' back to the world

I know where I belong
where I'm your girl
so I've got fuzzy dice to bring me luck
roll me to a better place
where we can rock


. . .



You used to slide down the carpeted stairs
or down the bannister
you stuttered like a kaleidoscope
'cause you knew too many words
you used to make ginger bread houses
we used to have taffy pulls

Take ecstasy with me, baby
take ecstasy with me.

You had a black snowmobile
we drove out under the northern lights
a vodka bottle gave you those raccoon eyes
we got beat up just for holding hands

Take ecstasy with me, baby
take ecstasy with me.
