"Feathers & Bones" (2014)

Feathers & Bones lyrics - The Clarks

She sang like a bird, high on a wire
At every chance, soulful as she could
And the words she chose where driven with such passion
But sadly, I never understood

She sang of God, but cursed like a sailor
Had manners of a queen, but grew up poor
With her broken mind she'd stare with no reaction
She didn't know her name, or mine, or yours

Hey, hey, hey
Flying around this place
Those days are lost in space
Time goes, you know I know
That all that's left are feathers and bones

Many years can bring you all the wisdom
Many years of memories all compiled
Was cruel to have to watch her heart grow older
While the rest of her turned back into a child

Hey, hey, hey
Flying around this place
Those days are lost in space
Time goes, you know I know
'Cause all that's left are feathers and bones

Hey, hey, hey
Scared and lost inside
Like a black hole in your mind
Sing low, I'm letting you go
And all that's left are feathers and bones

She sang like a bird, down to the wire
My love, I hope she understood

Hey, hey, hey
Flying around this place
Those days are lost in space
Time goes, you know I know
'Cause all that's left are feathers and bones

Hey, hey, hey
Scared and lost inside
Like a black hole in your mind
Sing low, sing low
'Cause all that's left are feathers and bones
all that's left are feathers and bones
all that's left are feathers and bones

All Or Nothing lyrics - The Clarks

I woke up on the bus after sleeping outside
I saw somebody's baby and I asked her for a ride
She told me she was going where the angels fear to tread
I laughed and said I've been there they left me for dead

We pulled up to the gate after the sun had gone down
I knew it from the visions I'd seen floating around
We walked along the garden he was waiting at the door
He laughed and said I know you, you better hit the floor

It's all or nothing inside
We're all just living on the dark side of lonely
It's all just rumors and sighs
It's the last, it's the first, it's the chapter and verse
It's a beautiful curse

They were dancing in the foyer they were crying on the stairs
Wailing in the swimming pool and passed out on the chairs
The vapor from the fire it was filling up the space
She said the devil has got a killing place

The stars are all out hanging in the trees
Out in the backyard standing in the shadows
Our friends are all gone you better leave with me
Breaking out the back door smashing out the window
Never gonna leave with me

We stayed a little longer she knew something wasn't right
The water kept on rising right up to the morning light
Her eyes were slowly shutting her lips were close to mine
I like the poison I just won't drink the wine

Nothing Good Happens After Midnight lyrics - The Clarks

I just want to tell you
A little something you should know
It will drive you crazy
You'll say it's overblown

Father warned me
Said I wouldn't understand
'Til it's too late, maybe
Boy you better have a plan

Nothing good happens after midnight
No good will come of it
No one's gonna save you in the spotlight
Now it's too late to fix

How am I gonna save you
How am I gonna teach you, and make it right
How am I gonna shake you
How am I gonna reach you, just in time

Crossed my fingers
On a binge in town
And a tail light missing
Heard the sirens sound

So I'll try to save you
With this tale gone wrong
Sit back and listen
As I ramble on

I've got no good reason
None in reserve
If I can spare you
What I never learned

Irene lyrics - The Clarks

She came from this place
Such a pretty face
And she danced to the radio
She could sing a song
The boys came along
She didn't know how to just say no
There's gonna be a tall, dark man to wed
There's gonna be a cold, hard truth instead

She's waving goodbye to seventeen
From a long, white limousine
Some dreams are in the air some are seen
Irene

Well she owned this town
But couldn't settle down
They played her songs on the radio
But she partied late
And she made them wait
It's all there on the video
There's gonna be a long bus ride ahead
There's gonna be some cold hotel in bed

She's waving goodbye to twenty-three
From deep inside the machine
Some hands are in the dirt some are clean
Irene

Well she fell so hard
And her kids looked on
She passed on to the other side
It went downhill fast
You know nothing lasts
I heard her song on a late night drive
Shoulda been some bright, blue skies ahead
There's gonna be some cold, hard ground instead

She's waving goodbye to thirty-three
From a long, black limousine
Life's just as kind to you as it is mean
Irene
Irene

Take Care Of You lyrics - The Clarks

Let me start by saying that I love you
You know that I'd do anything for you
Ever since day one you know you were a wild one
And keeping you in line was hard to do

I did wrong I know I've been hard on you
And in return you put me to the test
And our blood is so much thicker than that water
All I ever want for you is the best

And it's weighing on my mind
I'm praying all the time
Lord just help me see this through
There are people in this world
Some are broken some are black and blue
And I know that you'll take care of me
And I'll take care of you

You're gonna want to go to California
To search for fame or stake your claim to gold
And that thing you'll talk about what you'll call freedom
Back in my day well we called that rock-n-roll

And it's weighing on my mind
I'm praying all the time
Lord just help her see this through
There are people in this world
Some are broken some are black and blue
And I know that you'll take care of me
And I'll take care of you

And I watch the sun rise in the sky
Another day and another year
And love and dreams and hopes and fears
And I don't ask why it's the ties that bind

Life is good but things are never easy
We laugh and cry and live and die alone
You hold on to the one that really matters
You let go of the light when that bird has flown

And it's weighing on my mind
I'm praying all the time
Lord just help her see this through
There are people in this world
Some are broken some are black and blue, it's true
And I know that you'll be strong
You'll have faith and you'll know love
You'll have one of your own brand new
And I know that you'll take care of her
And I'll take care of you

Map Of The Stars lyrics - The Clarks

Had a plan, from the time that I touched down
That I'd tame this stinking town
Show the world just how I fly
Squeeze a promise out of lies

I've got a map of the stars and a rental car
Two Jones Sodas and this beat up guitar
And I'm just tryin' to fit in
Just me and the world 'til death do us part
Lost in a town with freaks and no heart
But I'm transfixed in
Oooh, a map of the stars

So this plan said a prophet to my face
You won't make it in this place
Well the weak they fall and drown
Walk the streets sleep on the ground

Got a map to a place of many dreams
That get crushed to smithereens
Should have known when I arrived
It's made hopeless by design

Had a map of the stars and a cup made of tin
Lost in a town covered in sin
Who can be in....a map of the stars
How could I be in, believed I be in
Way out of reach down on Satellite Beach
You can see them
Straight down the hole with a piece of your soul
You can be them
Freeway never takes me home
So I fly between them

Nothing But You lyrics - The Clarks

This song's not about California
I won't salute New York
No stars and there're no diamonds
Won't spend on what I can't afford

These words don't lead to water
Won't mention pills or pain
Or count my friends that died.....no
It's not about some search for fame

I went for something different
I made your dreams come true
This song is what you asked for
This song's 'bout nothing but you

Way too long
I'll sing the things I want to say to you
Way too long....it's true
It's 'bout nothing but you

This dog don't die in Nashville
And I won't lose my mind
No phone calls, there's no crying
Won't be crossing any lines

Magazine lyrics - The Clarks

I met a girl in Tennessee she wrote a song, it went to number one
Well we sat and had a drink, and she told me how it all had begun
One day she's singing in a coffee shop, shot up to the CMA's
Oh the world moves fast when you never know the time of day

When your face is pictured on the pages
When your name is out there on the scene
When your world is quickly rearranging
When your pictures are appearing on the pages of the magazines

She said, they started in a van, and then a bus, and then the planes would come
And they couldn't eat in restaurants, the bodyguards all had guns
Stars and stages, fame and all the love
Funny how life looks from above

Well a cold day came when the industry let her down
And all the handshakes and promises, buried without a sound
Friends she thought she had, like the wind were gone
She said I've got to admit it I loved it even though it's done

When your face is pictured on the pages
When your name is out there on the scene
When your world is quickly rearranging
Though your picture's disappearing from the pages of the magazines

Some Call It Destiny lyrics - The Clarks

You don't seem like a Monday morning girl to me
Tuesday got you on your knees
And nothing's gonna get you over that hump but maybe
Tell me what you need
Tell me what you like
Let me take you out tonight

Gonna be a Friday kind of love
Gonna be here every Sunday morning
You and me
Cause I got this crazy notion
Some call it destiny

Come ride that early morning train with me
We'll get down to the point you'll see
I got a lifetime full of goodnights waiting
Tell me what you need
Tell me what you like
Let me take you out tonight

I can't watch you walk away
No lonely Saturday alright alright
And I feel you coming on
And I know it won't be long, no it won't
We belong

Take Me lyrics - The Clarks

For all the thank yous that I should have spoken
But I never did
For all the comfort that I should have given
But I never did

Take me, shape me, mold me from this broken frame
Take me, shape me, I don't wanna lose this again

For all the mending and the doors that you opened
I know you had your fill and I thank you
You saw me falling and I should have noticed
Now I always will and I thank you

Take me, shape me, hold me to this burning flame
Take me, shape me, I don't wanna lose this again

Let your light shine on
Show me what side I'm on
Let your light shine on
Show me what side I'm on

So shine on
Don't wanna lose this again
So shine on
Lose this again

Broken Dove lyrics - The Clarks

I broke down the other day
Like when you died on that summer day
And all the sky was gray
And now my hope is gone
My love is singing an angel's song

Hold on be strong
It's hard while I'm gone
You're on your own but not for long
When the day comes I'm gonna take you

I fell down the other day
Going through your clothes trying to give them away
I thought that I could see the way
Cause all my dreams are there
In a box in a locket at the top of the stairs

Hold on be strong
It's hard while I'm gone
You're on your own but not for long
When the day comes I'm gonna take you home

A hundred shades of blue when they shine on you
Make you look like a picture in a book
And we carried love like a broken dove
In our hands God was laughing at our plans
And the water came and it carried us away
Through the hills through the valleys in the rain
And we went over the edge
And I heard you say that you got to hold on be strong
It's hard my love when I'm gone
You're on your own but not for long
When the day comes I'm gonna take you home

"Restless Days" (2009)

True Believer lyrics - The Clarks

She stepped in the light
Opening night
And delivered her lines

Life is nothing she sighed
Nothing without
The fire inside

She lives alone
And cries when she paints
Self-portraits seldom seen

She swore she loved me and I believed her
Then she lowered her eyes
There’s a real thin line between actor and deceiver
She knew how to play the true believer

On the edge of the night
She studied her lines
For the very last time

Life is nothing she cried
Nothing without
Someone by your side

She lived alone
And died on the stages
Of her broken dreams

She swore she loved me and I believed her
And then I saw that look in her eyes
There’s a fine black thread between deceived and deceiver
She once played the true believer

Inside lyrics - The Clarks

I don’t want to talk about the world today
Wars and revolutionaries fade away
I just want to know what kind of state you’re in
Did you kill your love did you lose your friend?

The middle of the nighttime what gets you through?
What pulls you back to daylight from the deep dark blue?

So tell me if your life has been a lonely ride
Did you take it on faith just to be denied?
Even if your broken heart’s a hundred miles wide
I just want to see what’s on the inside

I don’t want to read it in the news today
The ringing of a cell phone from a shallow grave
I just want to know how far and deep you’re in
Where’d you hide the bottle what’d you put it in?

The middle of the nighttime what gets you through?
What pulls you back to daylight from the deep dark blue?

So tell me if your life has been a lonely ride
Did you take it on faith just to be denied?
And even if your broken heart’s a hundred miles wide
I just want to see what’s on the inside

I guess we won’t be talkin’ ’bout the past today
Fingerprints and memories they fade away
I think I can tell what kind of place you’re in
Underneath the bruises and the dirty skin

The middle of the nighttime what gets you through?
What pulls you back to daylight from the deep dark blue

So tell me if your life has been a lonely ride
Did you take it on faith just to be denied?
And even if your broken heart’s a hundred miles wide
I just want to see what’s on the inside
