CAROLINE
Caroline, days and weeks and nights
Put a candle in the window
Write a letter once a week
All of my friends
All the days of the year
All the countries at the other end of this earth
Caroline, days and weeks and nights
All the time
I saw you arrive
I went outside
I realised
You don't see how hard I try
How long Caroline?
The highway to the airport
And the nearer I drew
The louder your voice
The cold night air
And the clearer the door into your room
Caroline, days and weeks and nights

PICTURE OF HELEN
I opened up that old book
Photographs took me back
To your room
To your room
Pale green eyes
Strong and kind
I looked at a picture of Helen
I woke up in your room
Photographs took me back
To your room
To your room

Chorus
I heard it in your voice
In a place so close

COMMODORE PETER
He's got himself a long green boat
He's got himself a nice size outboard
Swinging back and forth
He left the door unlocked the night before
Commodore Peter wants to know
Where are you going?
Can I take you home
Or to the market or to church
Or to a restaurant or a nightclub in St. Georges?
He gave up all he knew for the help of other folks
Skims across the water
Back and forth, back and forth
From Grand Anse beach to the village of St Georges
Commodore Peter wants to know

Chorus

He knows, he's seen the writing on the wall
No justice at all
Commodore Peter took a guest into his house
The one he trusted above the rest
And there is no doubt and there is no fault
He left the door unlocked
Commodore Peter wants to know

ANYWAY YOU CHOOSE ME
Sometimes, sometimes I think aloud all night
Everytime, everytime I come home without you
Across the ocean and
Into the wood
Four or five in the middle or
Anyway you choose me
Somebody, somebody came into my mind from somewhere
But nobody, nobody but nobody can take your place in this life

Chorus

Ours and theirs together
A hundred years outside ourselves
ake it all apart
Somebody came into my mind from somewhere
Cause noboby, nobody is looking over our shoulders

MAYBE EVERYTHING
Open up your eyes and look at him
Honesty can get you into trouble
Gone a day, a week, don't look for me
Gone a day, a year, entirely
May have a past, may have a future
Maybe just a day, maybe everything
Went to your place the night before I left
Whe I got home, Sunday had rolled around
Took all my bags downstairs to the car outside
Went up to Powers just for awhile

Chorus

Deborah, I don't want to fight you anymore
Open up your eyes and look at him
Honesty can get you into trouble
Gone a day, a week, don't look for me
Gone a day, a year, entirely

I'M OVER YOU
The stars are shining brighter than the night that I remember
My thoughts are like a river
Reflecting in all directions
I'm gonna phone her, but not today
I'm gonna write her, but not today
Today I'm gonna be
Driving down Highway 441 with the windows down
A beer in one hand, the radio blasting
My old needs I won't recognize
I'm Over You
Hold on to the evening, hold on to the morn
All night long, sunshine hiding underneath and
I'm gonna phone her, but not today
I'm gonna write her, but not today
Today I'm gonna be
Driving down Highway 441 with the windows down
A beer in one hand, the radio blasting
My old needs I won't recognize
I'm Over You
Miles of country road rise, rise away
The cars are by the river
Clouds are in the coffee-shops around here

TAKE MY COUNTRY BACK
I'm on my way
On my way to find you
I'm on my way to make you see what's plain is plain
I'm out there on the ground
Marching to corner you
I don't know why you are blind to your wrongs
I don't know why you pretend to be so strong
But I'm marching on to corner you
I'm coming home
Coming home to find you
I won't let you drag your secrets after you or shake your head
I've come to take my country back
Because she loves me
She loves me
She loves me dearly
I'm on my way
On my way to find you
I'm on my way to make you see what's plain is plain
I'm out there on the ground
Marching to corner you
Marching to corner you

(WE'LL GO) OUT OF TOWN
She said she'd been thinking alot
And hadn't found anything she wanted to do
It was one of the first times since leaving home
I remember telling you about a girl coming round
We'll go out of town
Maybe down South
And if we're lucky, the Southwest
We won't have to work
Well, not very hard
And anyway, we'll have a good time
Yeah, we'll have a good time
Don't worry about it
You know the back way is always open
I remember you telling about a girl that you used to hang around with
You know I never did really believe it too much

Chorus

You know I never did really believe it too much

DON'T TALK THAT WAY
Going down to the bottom
Don't give me that worthless glance
Give me your mouth
Give me your bad, bad mouth
(Don't talk that way)
Don't talk to me about my baby
(Don't talk that way)
Don't talk to me about my baby
She said she couldn't breathe
When them little fingers began to move
Teeth clenched in her lips in a spasm of horror
Them little fingers, wrinkled as prunes

Chorus

Going down to the bottom
He got on the nigh pole
You get in there in the middle Pete and do it for us
You clap three times and we go, go, go

THE ONLY STORY I TELL
You should know
I sing about you only
And for each song
there's a feeling, there's a time
You should know
You're my one and only
I love you truly
You're the only story I tell
When we go
To work in the morning each weekday
And sometimes
When we work on the weekends too
We keep
Each other in our hearts all day long
And when we get home
That feeling in our hearts overflows
You should know
You're my one and only
I love you truly
You're the only story I tell
I love you truly

PORQUE NO
Fuimos a la Florida
A la boda de mi prima
Y en camino a la recepcion
Montado en mi camion
Mi querida me dijo
Estoy cansada
De desirle a otros
Que tu eres mi boyfriend
Porque en mi corason
Tu eres mi marido
Porque no, Porque no, Porque no
Porque no nos
Porque no nos casamos
Ese dia
Y esa noche
Y todos los anos
De nuestra vida
Hay que dar lo mejor
Y grandes cantidades de amor
A tu familia
Porque no, Porque no, porque no
Porque no nos
Porque no nos casamos

HERE'S TO YOU
I got a call this morning
It went on and on
It said it's alright, it's OK
But I saw a pair of eyes
Said you can't fix up becoming
Be cunning
I said, "Here's To You"
We're driving in our car
Looking at those big hotels running west from downtown to the ocean
We got our canvas top down
Enjoying every minute
Every minute
Our house is the only house I know
Our house is only just so far
Our house can be here
Here
Here's to you
Long stem roses Soft red and white
She's a brave hopeful woman
Her eyes are bright
Her mind is clear
I started to laugh
She started to laugh
We don't want to die alone
Hold me, hold me down
Hold me, hold me down
Here's to you
