Lyrics and Songs
Some beautiful, thoughtful words to warm the heart



First off, let me just sing the praises of THE WEEPIES.
In honor of my newfound obsession with their simplistic
charm ("subtly intoxicating folk-pop"), here are some
of their songs and lyrics with love/wedding details for
your reading and listening enjoyment. Take a chance
on them- trust me. It is perfect relaxing, scrapbooking,
crafting music.

All This Beauty
"All this beauty
You might have to close your eyes
And slowly open wide
All this beauty, we traveled all night
We drank the ocean dry
And watched the sun rise

I can see you're now awake
Let me assure you friend:
Every day is ice cream and chocolate cake
And what you make of it, let me say
You get what you take from it so be amazed
And never stop, never stop, never stop
You gotta be brave

'Cause all this beauty
You might have to close your eyes
And slowly open wide
And watch the sun rise
And watch the sun rise
And watch the sun rise"

Painting By Chagall
"Sometimes rain that's needed falls
We float like two lovers in a painting by Chagall
All around is sky and blue town
Holding these flowers for a wedding gown
We live so high above the ground, satellites surround us.

I am humbled in this city
There seems to be an endless sea of people like us
Wakeful dreamers, I pass them on the sunlit streets
In our rooms filled with laughter
We make hope from every small disaster

Everybody says 'you can't, you can't, you can't, don't try.'
Still everybody says that if they had the chance they'd fly like we do."

Gotta Have You- The Weepies

"No amount of coffee, no amount of crying
No amount of whiskey, no amount of wine
No, nothing else will do
I've gotta have you, I've gotta have you."
-------------------
and Take It From Me
"What can I compare you to, a window the sun shines through?
Maybe the silver moon, a smile rising
The magic of the fading day, satellites on parade
A toast to the plans we've made to live like kings.

I lose my breath despite the air
When the rain falls down I give in to despair
Pink magnolia in winter she doesn't care
if you don't show up to have another cup.

What can I compare you to, when everything looks like you?
I get a bit confused with every Spring
Flowers that bloom your eyes, hummingbirds side by side
My heart won't stay entirely in this rib caging"

...just beautiful and PERFECT.
