Anything But Down*


My Favorite Mistake Back to the top of the page.

I woke up and called this morning,
The tone of your voice was a warning,
That you don't care for me anymore...

I made up the bed we sleep in,
I looked at the clock when you creep in,
It's 6 a.m. and I'm alone...

Did you know when you go,
It's the perfect ending,
To the bad day I was just beginning?
When you go all I know is,
You're my favorite mistake...

Well, your friends are sorry for me,
They watch you pretend to adore me,
But I'm no fool to this game...

Now here comes your secret lover,
She'd be unlike any other,
Until your guilt goes up in flames...

Did you know when you go,
It's the perfect ending,
To the bad day I've gotten used to spending?
When you go all I know is,
You're my favorite mistake...
You're my favorite mistake...

Well maybe nothin' lasts forever,
Even when you stay together...
I don't need forever after,
It's your laughter, won't let me go,
So I'm holding on this way...

Did you know, could you tell,
You were the only one,
That I ever loved?
Now everything's so wrong...

Did you see me walking by?
Did it ever make you cry?

You're my favorite mistake...
You're my favorite mistake...
You're my favorite mistake...


There Goes the Neighborhood Back to the top of the page.

Hey let's party, let's get down,
Let's turn the radio on,
This is the meltdown.
Get out the camera, take a picture,
The drag queens and the freaks
Are all out on the town.
And cowboy Jane's in bed
Nursing a swollen head.

Sunshine Sally and Peter Ustanov
Don't like the scene anyhow.
I dropped acid on a Saturday night
Just to see what the fuss was about.
Now there goes the neighborhood.

The photo chick made to look sickly
Is standing in her panties in the shower.
She plays the guitar in the bathroom
While the police dust her mother's plastic flowers.
And Schoolboy John's in jail
Making a killing through the U.S. mail.

Sunshine Sally and Peter Ustanov
Don't like the scene anyhow.
I dropped acid on a Saturday night
Just to see what the fuss was about.
There goes the neighborhood.
There goes the neighborhood.

This is the movie of the screenplay of the book
About a girl who meets a junkie.
The messenger gets shot down just for carrying
The message to a flunkie.
We can't be certain who the villans are
'Cuz everyone's so pretty
But the afterparty's sure to be a wing-ding
As it moves into your city.

Sunshine Sally and Peter Ustanov
Don't like the scene anyhow.
I dropped acid on a Saturday night
Just to see what the stink was about.
Sunshine Sally and Peter Ustanov
Don't like the scene anyhow.
I dropped acid on a Saturday night
Just to see what the fuss was about.
There goes the neighborhood.
There goes the neighborhood.


Anything But Down Back to the top of the page.

I light your cigarettes,
I bring you apples from the vine,
How quickly you forget,
I run the bath and pour the wine...
I bring you everything that floats into your mind...

But you don't bring me anything but down...
You don't bring me anything but down...
You don't bring me anything but down,
When you come 'round...

You are a raging sea,
I pull myself out everyday...
I plea insanity,
Cause I can't leave but I can't stay...
You say, won't you come find me,
And yes is what I say...

You don't bring me anything but down...
You don't bring me anything but down...
Everything is crashing to the ground,
Maybe I'm not your perfect kind,
Maybe I'm not what you had in mind,
Maybe we're just killing time...

You with your silky words,
And your eyes of green and blue,
You with your steel beliefs,
That don't match anything you do...
It was so much easier before you became you...

You don't bring me anything but down...
You don't bring me anything but down...
Everything just crashes to the ground,
When you come around...
When you come around...

No more playing seek and hide,
No more long and wasted nights,
Can't you make it easy on yourself...

I know you wish you were strong,
You wish you were never wrong,
Well, I got some wishes of my own...
