Track Name: Movie Music
Chorus:
When I see your face
movie music plays
movie music plays
when I see your face

When I know that I may see you
I prepare what I'll say and do
determined that I'll keep my cool
invariably I'm a fool
cuz when I see your face
movie music plays

I think I might just lose my grip
I see that you still bite your lip
adrift on a see of your green eyes
when they turn blue I am capsized
cuz when I see your face
movie music plays

I'm starting to see it's kind of sad
I can't get over what we had
I've written a hundred songs for you
I just can't seem to get over you
cuz when I see your face
movie music plays

Chorus
Track Name: The Hummingbird
The hummingbird stopped again today
to ask how you had been.
He said, "I haven't seen your best friend
in a year and a day."
And so I told the truth of what had gone wrong
that you and I needed space.
He said, "What is this thing called space,
is it a year or a day?

"Is it true,
is she gone,
has she not heard all these songs?
If she had,
do you think she might have stayed?
Because I had been lost
in the desert so long,
and then I heard your song."

Well the hummingbird's not the kind of guy
who you want to tell a lie to
so tell him,
tell him true.
The hummingbird still wants to know
not me -
I gave up long ago -
Are you gone to stay?
Track Name: Illinois
Chorus:
Illinois, Illinois...

Oh my girl,
let me go my way,
let me go my way.
Oh my girl,
you have torn your dress
keeping me off of that train.
I have run a fever
across the open plain
and that westbound rail is coursing in my veins.
I can walk you home
but then I'm on my way,
in all your towns the bells are ringing out our old refrain.

You know you're an incurable drunk
and I love your eyes.
What a beautiful wreck you are.
I love you, goodbye.

Chorus

Don't look now
I'm all dressed up
in my corduroys,
heading west
toward the Badlands with the Elephant Boy.
Now send my regards to old Cook County,
South Side stockyards and their bounty,
give my love to both your mom and dad.

And I will keep your paintings on my wall,
I will grow my hair so long
that you will know I can't stay long.
When morning comes
against the rain,
with that westbound rail
coursing in my veins.
What a beautiful wreck you are.
I love you, goodbye.

Chorus
Track Name: The Factory Job
The factory job is waiting
at DuoFast
I could just stay in and paint
but the factory job is waiting

Now I could just stay in
just to paint
but the factory job is waiting, waiting

The factory job is waiting
at DuoFast
I could just stay in and paint
but the factory job is waiting
at DuoFast...
Track Name: Stack 'em Up
Chorus:
I'm gonna stack 'em up
I'm gonna stack 'em up
I'm gonna stack 'em up
I'm gonna burn 'em down
I'm gonna stack 'em up
I'm gonna stack 'em up
I'm gonna stack 'em up
I'm gonna burn 'em down

Why'd you leave, why'd you leave all of your records
Why'd you leave, why'd you leave all of your toys
Why'd you leave, why'd you leave all of your letters
from your other boys?

I'm gonna stack 'em up
I'm gonna stack 'em up
I'm gonna stack 'em up
I'm gonna burn 'em down
I'm gonna stack 'em up
I'm gonna stack 'em up
I'm gonna stack 'em up
I'm gonna burn 'em down

Hey, little bird
why did you fly away?
Where in the world
are you gonna stay?
Hey, little girl
who is gonna love you?

Chorus

Why'd you leave, why'd you leave all of your records
Why'd you leave, why'd you leave all of your toys
Why'd you leave, why'd you leave all of your letters
from your other boys?
Track Name: I Still Got it Bad
I threw away
all my time on you
I threw away
all my pride on you

Your heart is so cold
as a comet's core
and my love will blaze
forever more

Chorus:
You claim our love was wrong
but you keep me holding on
by the streetcar spark I am gone

I still got it bad
baby I still got it bad
for you
I do
Track Name: Babydoll
My secret mind
is set on you
I stand outside
drenched in the moon

I need you
I need you
Babydoll

I've been so happy
now that you hate me
I cross my heart
tear me apart

I need you
I need you
Babydoll

Babydoll,
I know you're thinking of me
with each and every moonrise
from your windowsill
and I know that you love me still
but you're never gonna take me back
I mean, I hope you never will.
Cuz Babydoll, you see
somehow I need this pain
to keep on crying
and lying
and loving
and dying

I need you...
Track Name: Wind-Up Bird
Wind-up bird
you're so wild and so alone
so free yet you belong
high above my neighborhood

Wind-up bird
each day heard but never seen
you're obscured among the trees
you're busy winding up the spring

of the world and all the little people in it
if not for you it might stop spinning
and we'd have to start back beginning

Wind-up bird
you're so wild and so alone
so free you don't belong
to me
Track Name: You're So Beautiful
Paris called -
their parasols
are running to the sea.
They caught wind
you're home again,
they're envious of me.

You're so beautiful,
you're so beautiful.

In Japan
the ladies' fans
are going out of style,
they were told
that you've gone home,
they're tumbling down the aisles.

You're so beautiful,
you're so beautiful.

Everything's falling apart
when you leave.
Just turn around
if you don't believe me.

In old Cairo
the river flows
northward to the sea.
But now it's turned
around again
and follows you and me.

You're so beautiful,
you're so beautiful...
