The Sun Came Out

2009

Too Blue
Johnny Marr/Jeff Tweedy

 

You Never Know
Jeff Tweedy

 

Little By Little
Sharon Finn/Neil Finn

I’m a walking machine
See the world flashing by
I’m a black balloon
Floating high in the sky

And I rise above it all
And I get so fanciful
As I’m going nowhere

On the western shore
There’s a faint strip of light
On the harbor bridge
Traffic all backed up for miles

On this occasion, I think you could be right
You’re still my baby, I’m holding on too tight
When the kids fall in love again
Little by little turning into men

In the reign of kings
Only one rule is allowed
You can be anything
Just make your mother proud

On this occasion, I think you could be right
You’re still my baby, I could be holding on too tight
When the kids fall in love again
Little by little turning into men

Now you’ve made it
You don’t have to read a map
After lightning
Always comes a thunderclap

On this occasion, I think you could be right
Don’t keep me waiting, tell me what you feel inside
When the kids fall in love again
Little by little turning into men

I’m a walking machine
With the world flashing by
I’m a black balloon
Floating high in the sky

And I found a place for us
We can make the whole thing up as we’re going
When the kids fall in love again
Little by little turning into men

When the kids fall in love again
Little by little turning into men

All Comedians Suffer
Neil Finn

Let’s get started
I still dream of
A bright future
The white lemon

The ballerina
She’s still smoking
The weightlifter
I’m not joking

You know inside
All comedians suffer
On the outside
Try so hard to look tougher

But there’s a cost
When you radiate sunshine
And dreams get lost, ohh

The walls shaking
The low ceiling
The punch coming
The nerve ending

The dry swallow
My heart sinking
The doors open
Everyone is looking

But I don’t mind
‘Cause all comedians suffer
On the outside
Try so hard to look tougher

But there’s a cost
When you radiate sunshine
And dreams get lost
And keys get left on the counter

Something only I can see
When you’re coming back to me
All the feelings that I had
Hard for you to understand

Never knowing what comes up
Guess I could be the only one
That’s hearing lies
And knowing how to take it

And you know what the funny thing is
Until he brings you back
Until he makes you high

And when someone is special
Did you even know what it was
And we all got it wrong

And you laugh as he pulls his gun
The people in the aisles are rolling
And you keep yourself dry and happy
Ohh, ohh

Duxton Blues

Hazel Black
KT Tunstall/Neil Finn

Hazel the gypsy and I we went walking
Eyes perfectly matching
Despite our different takes
Had no shoes
Just bruises and opinions on
Living it up neck and neck
On simplicity stakes

Why didn’t I ask her
Where she came from
Got her name from
Oh, it wasn’t a tactic
Why didn’t she jinx me
Like a Gypsy Rose Lee should
Oh, Maybe she was distracted
Oh she wasn’t a bad kid

Summer in the valley
On the hot stone alley that
Cut a hole through the house
From the front to the back
Little did I know who was coming over
To the place with the gate
That welcomed Hazel Black

Why didn’t I ask her
Where she came from
Got her name from
Oh, it wasn’t a tactic
Why didn’t she jinx me
Like a Gypsy Rose Lee should
Oh, Maybe she was distracted

Why didn’t I ask her
Where she came from
Got her name from
Oh, she wasn’t a tactic
Why didn’t she jinx me
Like a Gypsy Rose Lee should
Oh, Maybe she was distracted

Yeah

Why didn’t I ask her
Where she came from
Got her name from
Oh, Maybe she was distracted

She was Hazel Black
Hazel Black
Miss Hazel Black
