White Blood Cells

01. Dead Leaves And The Dirty Ground

Dead leaves and the dirty ground
when I know you’re not around
shiny tops and soda pops
when I hear your lips make a sound
when I hear your lips make a sound

Thirty notes in the mailbox
will tell you that I’m coming home
and I think I’m gonna stick around
for a while so you’re not alone
for a while so you’re not alone

If you can hear a piano fall
you can hear me coming down the hall
if I could just hear your pretty voice
I don’t think I need to see at all
I don’t think I need to see at all

Soft hair and a velvet tongue
I want to give you what you give to me
and every breath that is in your lungs
is a tiny little gift to me
is a tiny little gift to me

I didn’t feel so bad till the sun went down
then I come home
no one to wrap my arms around

Well any man with a microphone
can tell you what he loves the most
and you know why you love at all
if you’re thinking of the holy ghost
if you’re thinking of the holy ghost

02. Hotel Yorba

I was watching
with one eye on the other side
I had fifteen people telling me to move
I got moving on my mind
I found shelter
In some thoughts turning wheels around
I said 39 times that I love you
to the beauty I had found

Well its 1 2 3 4
take the elevator
at the hotel yorba
I’ll be glad to see you later
all they got inside is vacancy

I been thinking
of a little place down by the lake
they got a dirty little road leading up to the house
I wonder how long it will take till we’re alone
sitting on the front porch of that home
stomping our feet on the wooden boards
never gonna worry about locking the door

And its 4 5 6 7
grab your umbrella
grab hold of me
cause I’m your favorite fella
all they got inside is vacancy

03. I’m Finding It Harder To Be A Gentleman

Well I’m finding it harder
to be a gentleman every day
all the manners that I’ve been taught
have slowly died away
but if I held the door open for you
It would make your day

You think that I care
about me and only me
when every single girl needs help
climbing up a tree
well I know it don’t take much
to satisfy me

Maybe it’s whatever’s in my mind
that’s distracting me
but if i could find emotion
to stimulate devotion
well then you’d see

Well I’m finding it hard to say
that I need you twenty times a day
I feel comfortable so baby why
don’t you feel the same?
have a doctor come and visit us
and tell us which one is sane

Well I never said I wouldn’t
Throw my jacket in the mud for you
but my father gave it to me so
maybe I should carry you
then you said
« You almost dropped me »
so then I did
and I got mud on my shoes

04. Fell In Love With A Girl

Fell in love with a girl
fell in love once and almost completely
she’s in love with the world
but sometimes these feelings
can be so misleading
she turns and says « are you alright? »
I said « I must be fine cause my heart’s still beating »
She says « come and kiss me by the riverside, bobby says it’s fine he don’t consider it cheating »

Red hair with a curl
mellow roll for the flavor
and the eyes for peeping
can’t keep away from the girl
these two sides of my brain
need to have a meeting
can’t think of anything to do
my left brain knows that
all love is fleeting
she’s just looking for something new
and I said it once before
but it bears repeating

———————————————————————-

05. Expecting

Your mouth said this never
but your fingers have shown me
that your head is so clever
you claim that you own me
forever

You have the right to conduct me
in whatever fashion
your attempt construct me
in the interest of passion
you sent me
to toledo

I came back with handfulls
I did what you asked me
but after the thank yous
that you quickly got passed me
I’m expected
you’re expecting
I’m expected
expected

———————————————————————–

06. Little Room

Well you’re in your little room
and you’re working on something good
but if it’s really good
you’re gonna need a bigger room
and when you’re in the bigger room
you might not know what to do
you might have to think of
how you got started in your little room

da da da

07. The Union Forever

It can’t be love
for there is no true love
It can’t be love
for there is no true love

Shure I’m C.F.K.
but you gotta love me
the cost no man can say
but you gotta love me

Well I’m sorry but I’m not
interested in gold mines,
oil wells, shipping or real estate
what would I liked to have been?
everything you hate

There is a manÊ
a certain man
and for the poor you may be shure
that he’ll do all he can
who is this one?
[who’s favorite son?]
just by his action has the traction
magnets on the run
who likes to smoke?
enjoys a joke?
and wouldn’t get a bit
upset if he were really broke?
with wealth and fame
he’s still the same
I’ll bet you five you’re not alive
If you don’t now his name

You said the union forever
You said the union forever
You cried the union forever
but that was untrue girl
cause it can’t be love

08. The Same Boy You’ve Always Known

You fell down of course
and then you got up of course
and you started over
forgot my name of course
then you started to remember
pretty tough to think about
the beginning of december
pretty tough to think about

You’re looking down again
and then you look me over
we’re laying down again
on a blanket in the clover
the same boy you’ve always known
well I guess I haven’t grown
the same boy you’ve always known

Think of what the past did
it could ‘ve lasted
so put it in your basket
I hope you know a strong man
who can lend you a hand
lowering my casket

I thought this is just today
and soon you’d been returning
the coldest blue ocean water
cannot stop my heart and mind
from burning
everyone who’s in the know says
that’s exactly how it goes
and if there’s anything good about me
I’m the only one who knows

———————————————————————–

09. We’re Going To Be Friends

Fall is here, hear the yell
back to school, ring the bell
brand new shoes, walking blues
climb the fence, books and pens
I can tell that we’re going to be friends

Walk with me, Suzy Lee
through the park and by the tree
we will rest upon the ground
and look at all the bugs we found
then safely walk to school
without a sound

Well here we are, no one else
we walked to school all by ourselves
there’s dirt on our uniforms
from chasing all the ants and worms
we clean up and now its time to learn

Numbers, letters, learn to spell
nouns, and books, and show and tell
at playtime we will throw the ball
back to class, through the hall
teacher marks our height
against the wall

And we don’t notice any time pass
we don’t notice anything
we sit side by side in every class
teacher thinks that I sound funny
but she likes the way you sing

Tonight I’ll dream while in my bed
when silly thoughts go through my head
about the bugs and alphabet
and when I wake tomorrow I’ll bet
that you and I will walk together again
cause I can tell that we’re going to be friends

10. Offend In Every Way

I’m patient of this plan
as humble as I can
I’ll wait another day
before I turn awaya
but know this much is true
no matter what I do
offend in every way
I don’t know what to say

You tell me to relax
and listen to these facts
that everyone’s my friend
and will be till the end
but know this much is true
no matter what I do
no matter what I say
offend in every way

I’m walking through the door
but they’re expecting more
of an interesting man
and sometimes I think I can
but how much can I fake
I’ll speak until I break
with every word I say
offend in every way

———————————————————————–

11. I Think I Smell A Rat

Oh I think I smell a rat
I think I smell a rat
all you little kids
seem to think you know
just where it’s at
I think I smell a rat
walking down the street
carrying a baseball bat
I think I smell a rat

Oh I think I smell a rat
I think I smell a rat
all you little kids
seem to think you know
just where is at
I think I smell a rat
treating your mother and father
like a welcome mat
I think I smell a rat

13. I Can’t Wait

I can’t wait till you
try to come back girl
when things they don’t
work out for you
who do you think you ‘re
messing with girl
what do you think
you’re trying to do?

First you said I was blind
you certainly took your time
I thought you made up your mind

So many times I’ve gotten
used to this
this old idea
of being all alone
tell me how I’m supposed to
get through with this?
I wish this house felt like a home

———————————————————————–

14. Now Mary

Now Mary
can’t you find a way
to bring me down?

I’m so sorry
that I had to go
and let you down

Knowing you I’ll think
things are gonna be fine
but then again you’ll
probably change your mind

I’m sorry mary but
being your mate
means trying to find something
that you aren’t going to hate

What a season
to be beautiful
without a reason

———————————————————————–

15. I Can Learn

I wish we
were stuck up a tree
then we’d know
it’s nicer below

I don’t know any lullabys
I don’t know how
to make you mine
but I can learn
in lonely days ago
I saw lovers put on a show
well now it’s my turn

Drive you home
then wait by the phone
for that call
and a walk in the fall

no harm will come of this
one little midnight kiss
it will not burn
too many lonely days
I feel like a throw away
well now it’s my turn

Falling down
is no longer around
feeling sun
I’m no longer one
well isn’t this fun?

———————————————————————–

16. This Protector

I never knew that I had to be
this protector
So many thoughts inside my head
a strange collector
but now
now
You thought you heard a sound
there’s no one else around
looking at the door
it’s coming through the floor

300 people living out in
west virginia have no ideaÊ
of all these thoughts that lie
within you but now
now
