Automechanic Lyrics

AUTOMECHANIC

I had a similar dream

My dream was real though

I left my body in the bed.

I took my clutch and pipe

Climbed out the window

And I was something else instead.

Automechanic

I never worry

I have a garden and a radio.

Made all my own tools

Minding my business

Trade you a tune for some gasoline.

Out in the country I met a good man

Found my body in the bed.

We traveled far and wide

In some of my favorite rides

Working on engines and making them run again.

Now I'm a farmer

Praying for rain

But we have the children and the radio.

Made all my own tools

Minding my business

Trade you a tune for some gasoline.

Automechanic

I never worry

I have a garden and a radio.

Automechanic

I never worry

I have a garden and the radio

Made all my own tools

Yeah, I can machine

Trade you a tune for some gasoline.

 

LAZY JANE

I'm never gonna be a cheerleader

I can't do tricks

And I ain't that sick.

I'll never make it with the other believers

I don't have it 

And I'm likely to quit.

And today I'm being Lazy Jane

I'm feeling blue

Cause I can't have you.

Call me crazy

Hey, it may be true

I'm still crying for you.

I'm never gonna be a pro-skater

I can't do tricks and I ain't that sick

I'm always gonna be a hazy deleter

All my stories

All my glory

And today I'm being Lazy Jane

I'm feeling blue

Cause I can't have you.

Call me crazy

Hey, it may be true

I'm still crying for you.

Today I'm being Lazy Jane

I'm feeling blue

Cause I can't have you.

It never goes away

I know it's true

Cause I'm still crying for you.

I'm being Lazy Jane

I'm feeling blue

Cause I can't have you.

Call me crazy

Hey, it may be true

I'm still crying for you. 

 

COME GET ME

I wasn't looking for no trouble this time

Where did you come from?

You knocked me off of my feet

When I was feeling fine

But you're forgiven.

I never make it very obvious

And when I do I'm mostly misunderstood

You have a habit of hearing me right

Yeah, you get me.

I wanna tell you what's on my mind

And I really wanna see you again,

Maybe give it a little time

It's gone bad before it ever began, yeah.

Now I'm at the corner with my love

Baby come get me, I'm waiting

I'll turn to stone here by myself

Baby don't let me.

Who wants to travel?

Let's take a trip.

I want your darkness

You have a heavy heart

And I think I'll fit

I just have one suitcase.

I wanna tell you about my dreams

And I want you back in my plans

But please believe what you say to me

I'll be gone you'll never see me again

Yeah

Now I'm at the corner with my love

Baby come get me, I'm waiting

I couldn't hack it by myself

Baby collect me, I'm sorry.

I'm feeling wrong about your love

Baby correct me

I'll fall apart without your love

Baby connect me

I'm feeling helpless about you

Baby you wreck me

I couldn't hack it by myself

Baby don't hate me I love you.

Baby come get me I love you. 

 

GET LOST

You can't change, I haven't

So now dry your tears

And tell me what you always say

You will.

Good news! I'm not tired today

So move aside

I can drive us for an hour

Get lost 

If you want to.

Get lost 

If I feel it I will too.

Has it been a week today?

Oh, where are we 

And shouldn't I have?

When you reassemble

Then remember to keep living this way.

And get lost

If you want to.

Get lost

If you feel that.

Get lost

If I feel it I will too.

 

LEARNED MY LESSONS

I'm so glad

It's gonna be fine.

I learned my lessons from a real good kind

They said

Be helpful and be on time

And you can be happy for the rest of your life.

I broke down when I was traveling alone

A little lady took me into her home

She said

You're OK 

I think I have what you need

I learned my lessons from a real good breed

They said

Be gracious

And be real kind

And tread lightly on the land that you find.

When you can, you try to be on time

And you can be happy for the rest of your life.

Do what you love

And what you believe in.

I learned my manners from a real good team

They said

When you have to, you change your ways

And you'll be healthy for the rest of your days

So be thankful and speak your mind

Give love to the treasures you find

When you can, try to be on time

And you'll be happy for the rest of your life.

A-ha haha ha ha ha haha ha

Haha ha ha ha haha ha.

 

OPPOSITE ISLAND

It's been a long day

You crashed your car

I flipped my lid off

Went too far.

It's safe to say it's been a bad night

Drink it off

I am a low-life

I am awful.

But we are standing on Opposite Island!

Maybe it's a good sign

And we're alright.

It's been a long day

There's a lot to talk about

I'll tell you later when it's over.

We are standing on Opposite Island!

Maybe it's a good sign

And we're all alright.

 

GOOD LOVE

I am not here to make a change in you

I'm not here to make a home

You are afraid to break my heart in two

But you won't.

You don't love me baby

And you never will

It's not a question still

But hey hey here's the money

Hey hey here's a song

Now where's the good love honey?

You got me all wrong.

So stop talking

You don't make sense

Don't say you're sorry solely in your own defense

If you can't understand it

Don't believe it's true

But keep your head on right

I need the rest of you.

Cause I don't love you baby

I'm just passing through

Til I get my hands on you

Hey hey here's the money

Hey hey here's a song

Now where's the good love, honey?

You got me all wrong.

If you don't see me crying

Don't rescue me.

If you don't see me trying

I am occupied and free.

You don't love me baby

You're no good for me

It's not a mystery 

Hey hey here's the money

Hey hey here's a song

Now where's the good love honey?

You got me all wrong.

I don't love you baby

I'm just passing through

Til I get my hands on you

Hey hey here's the money

Hey hey here's a song

Now where's the good love honey?

You got me all wrong.

 

DOPE VAN GOGH

You are the sun

And I, too, am one

But your light burns brighter than mine

And your bonfire gravity is blinding

Exciting, mmmm.

You, you are the West

You're a graphite harvest

And I will not settle for the plentiful view

And I can't lose sight of what I'm here for

To do, love, to do.

And it's amazing 

How you can't come down

It's the main thing

I get my head around

Every time you come along

Any time you come along.

You, you make me wild

You're a dope Van Gogh in my style

And your naked confidence is cool

But you make it awfully hard to follow

Oh, the sorrow that I'll swallow

And it's amazing 

How you can't come down

It's the main thing

I get my head around

Every time you come along

Any time you come along

The insane thing

Is that I can't come down either

When I come along

Anytime I come along.

 

HEY NEIGHBOR

Hey neighbor, hello

Did you just get home?

And do you want to be a friend of mine?

Well curious me,

I was hoping that we could get acquainted.

Do you want to come over

Put your feet on my table?

Can I offer you a glass of wine?

You can call on me

And I can call on you

To get some sugar.

Let's run and get high

What's on your mind neighbor?

Good company is hard to find

But you are right by me

And I am free

So we should get together.

 

IN OUR HANDS

This is the year that you dream about

When it all comes out

And we are done.

Picture the faces in a roundabout

Can you take it? 

Oh no no no.

It's in our hands

We make our own plans

You fall now

Face it, I will too.

It's up to you to make it happen

To see it through

Just bow your head and I will too.

We traveled 

Starry-eyed 

Up to the edge

And then you turned

And left me there for dead.

And later

When I won you over again

Oh I burned you back in the end.

It's in our hands

We make our own plans

You fall now

Maybe I will too

It's up to you to make it happen

To see it through

Just bow your head and I will too.

Oh I'll keep a candle lit for you!

So it is written,

You were good to me.

And to your family,

Who will I be?

And should we ever get it back again

Can we make it up here, my friend?

It's in our hands

If this is goodbye

You go your way and I will too

It's up to you 

To say I'm sorry

And then I love you

Just bow your head little darling

Come on, your girl is calling

Just bow your head and I will too.

 

SUN MOON AND STARS

If you bring the sun and the moon

And the stars

Then babe, I'm gonna take em.

You bring the devil

And I'll shake him

Go on, lay it on me.

If you bring the clouds and the rain

And the whole world in flames

And you're bleeding

And someone comes looking for trouble

I will cover you.

I'll make headlines when I follow through

Go on and lay it on me.

Quit hiding your face

It's the last thing that anyone needs.

And when I get to crying instead

Over something you said

I'll stand by the blues

I'm gonna use em

I'll make a note not to abuse em

Go on and do that for me.

I've been moving a new way entirely

Listen to me

I've been trying

I've been trying

I've been trying

To live my life over here

And choose love over fear

Cause it's useless not to taste it

And there's no reason not to believe

I give my days to the dealer

I'll be a witness to disease

And have the courage of a sailor

If there's an answer I don't see it.

If there's a weakness I don't see it

I live my dreams over here

And choose love over fear

I give my days to the dealer.
