The Talking Leaves

Sequoia's winters were sixteen silent tongue spirit clean
He walked at his father's side
Across the smoking battle ground where red and white men lay all around
So many here had died
The wind had scattered around snow white leaves upon the ground
Not leaves like leaves from trees
Sequoia said what can this be what's the strange thing here I see
From where come leaves like these
Sequoia turned to his father's eyes and he said father you're wise
From where come such snow white leaves
With such strange marks upon these squares
Not even the wise owl could put them there
So strange these snow white leaves
His father shielding his concern resenting the knowledge Sequoia yearned
Crumbled the snow white leaves
He said when I explain then it's done these are talking leaves my son
The white men's talking leaves
The white man takes a berry of black and red
And an eagle's feather from the eagle's bed
And he makes bird track marks
And the marks on the leaves they say carry messages to his brother far away
And his brother knows what's in his heart
They see these marks and they understand the truth in the heart of the far off man
The enemies can't hear them
Said Sequoia's father son they weave bad medicine on these talking leaves
Leave such things to them
Then Sequoia walking lightly followed his father quietly but so amazed was he
If the white man talks on leaves why not the Cherokee
Vanished from his father's face Sequoia went from place to place
But he could not forget
Year after year he worked on and on till finally he cut into stone
The Cherokee alphabet
Sequoia's hair by now was white his eyes began to lose their light
But he taught all who would believe
That the Indian's thoughts could be written down
Just as the white men's there on the ground and he left us these talking leaves

Bang The Doldrums

I wrote a goodbye note in lipstick on your arm
When you passed out
I couldn't bring myself to call
Except to call it quits
 
Best friends
Ex-friends till the end
Better off as lovers
And not the other way around
Racing through the city
Windows down
In the back of yellow checkered cars
 
[x2:]
You're wrong
Are we all wrong?
 
This city says...
 
Come hell or high water
Well I'm feeling hot and wet
I can't commit to a thing
Be it heart or hospital
 
Best friends
Ex-friends till the end
Better off as lovers
And not the other way around
Racing through the city
Windows down
In the back of yellow checkered cars
 
[x2:]
You're wrong
Are we all wrong?
 
The tombstones were waiting
They were half-engraved
They knew it was over
Just didn't know the date
 
And I cast a spell over the west to make you think of me
The same way I think of you
This is a love song in my own way
Happily ever after below the waist
 
Best friends
Ex-friends till the end
Better off as lovers
 
Racing through the city
Windows down
In the back of yellow checkered cars
 
[x2:]
You're wrong
Are we all wrong?
 
Best friends
Ex-friends till the end
Better off as lovers
And not the other way around
Ex-friends till the end
Better off as lovers
 

Oh Susanna

Oh, I come from Alabama
With a banjo on my knee
I'm going to Louisiana
My true love for to see
 
It rained all night the day I left
The weather it was dry
The sun so hot, I froze to death
Susanna, don't you cry
 
Oh, Susanna
Don't you cry for me
'Cause I come from Alabama
With a banjo on my knee
 
I had a dream the other night
When everything was still
I thought I saw Susanna
She was coming down the hill
 
A buckwheat cake was in her mouth
A tear was in her eye
Says, 'I'm coming from the South
So Susanna, don't you cry'
 
Oh, Susanna
Don't you cry for me
'Cause I come from Alabama
With a banjo on my knee
 
I soon will be in New Orleans
And then I'll look around
And when I find Susanna
I will fall upon the ground
 
Buf if I do not find her
I swear, I'll surely die
And when I'm dead and buried
Oh, Susanna, don't you cry
 
Oh, Susanna
Don't you cry for me
'Cause I come from Alabama
With a banjo on my knee
 
Oh, Susanna
Don't you cry for me
'Cause I come from Alabama
With a banjo on my knee
 

We Rise Again

In truth we never gave up
On the philosopher's stone
I guess anything you wanna do
You gotta do it on your own

For the love of you
For the love of me
For the love of everyone
Who's yet to be free

Borders are scars on the face of the planet
So heal away my alchemy man
Even atheist holds up the candle
We rise again
We rise again

With a fist full of heart
And relics of future
We rise again

Las fronteras dividen, solo crean cicatrices
Hay gente que te engaña y se roba tus raíces
Cuando uno es guerrero, uno no puede rendirse
No dejes que tu dignidad nadie la pise

Not enough not enough
It's not enough not enough
When even atheist holds up the candle
We rise again
We rise again

With a fist full of heart
And relics of future
Mama we rise again

With a fist full of heart
And relics of future
Mama we rise again

I'm In Love With You

It's late in the evening
And I'm waiting for you
Soon I'll stop breathing
And I blame it on the full moon

So darling, please believe
I'm in love with you
I'm in love with you

So darling, please believe
I'm in love with you
I'm in love with you

Leave your shoes at the door
I can't wait no more
We might be too young
But I think we're in love

So darling, please believe
I'm in love with you
I'm in love with you

So darling, please believe
I'm in love with you
I'm in love with you

Time flies by in your eyes
When I am with you, I feel alive

So darling, please believe
I'm in love with you
I'm in love with you

So darling, please believe
I'm in love with you
I'm in love with you

So darling, please believe
I'm in love with you
