Fluffy kittens, bright yellow mittens Puppies in the window with snow falling down Ice cream on Saturday, the face of Doris Day Ellen dancing wearing beige or brown Volkswagen Bugs, One of Oprah's never-ending hugs People playing Twister, Bean and Rogers Mister Are You Happy Now? Are You Happy Now? Photos in yearbooks, Darwin's bumbling crooks Firecrackers on the 4th of July Clowns throwing candy, Danny & Sandy Summer Lovin' before he made her cry Volkswagen Bugs, One of Oprah's never-ending hugs People playing Twister, Bean and Rogers Mister 2 4 6 8 It’s you that we appreciate We’re tired of your frown, Turn it upside down! 2 4 6 8 It’s you that we appreciate Turn that frown upside down! Are You Happy Now? Are You Happy Now?

She only likes talking to me when I’m so far away She only likes talking to me when I’m so far away A different time zone, a long time till I’ll be home It’s cold and dark, sitting here all alone Do me a favour pick up the telephone She only likes talking to me when I’m so far away You say you love talking to me when you’re so far away Words are rolling off your tongue there’s always something to say Making plans, feel like we’re holding hands Shifting sands, someone that understands Plans deferred, rumours I’ve overheard She only likes talking to me when I’m so far away It could be beautiful, so beautiful What do you say? She only likes talking to me when she’s so far away

Waiting, Hoping, Listening Waiting, Hoping, Listening With you I want to go, To a picture show Are you ready? Waiting, Hoping, Listening Waiting, Hoping, Listening With you I want to go To a picture show Sure would like to know Where did everybody go? Waiting, Hoping, Listening

Some things confuse me A lot I don’t understand Other things amuse me They both go hand in hand We learned a long time ago Not to cross the fine line But the lessons we learned and the stories we told Have faded over time When will the sun come up? Why is it dark out here? How high is the sky? And what makes a river flow? What would it be like to live your life from a child’s point of view? Every day is bright and new From a child’s point of view The kids are getting older I guess we all are too You see their innocence slipping away They don’t have to believe what they’re telling you We learned a long time ago Not to cross the fine line But the lessons we learned and the stories we told Have faded over time

Keep Calm 03:49
Beneath the endless sky It was only you and I The rain began to fall Staring straight ahead At mountains made of red Etched by time and sun Where did it go wrong? Could never get along Keep calm and carry on Something’s got to give There’s a better way to live Keep calm and carry on Innocence was lost Still adding up the cost Freedom has a price A love that was so pure Now we’re looking for a cure A cure that can’t be found

Sirens on Kingsway they’re ringing so loud Sirens on Kingsway they’re ringing so loud But you’re beside me sleeping so sound Sirens on Kingsway they’re ringing so loud Sirens on Kingsway they’re ringing so loud Sirens on Kingsway they’re ringing so loud Down at the Biltmore could be lost in the crowd Siren’s on Kingsway they’re ringing so loud So happy, they’re not coming this way So happy, I can live another day Siren’s on Kingsway they’re ringing so loud

Where were you when the sun was high? Sleeping late because you could You took me to the river but the river was dry I couldn’t stay I thought I would die Nothing left but dust and sand It wasn’t nice, and it wasn’t good Because you could Where were you when the moon was high? Leaving town, like I knew you would Did you hear when the shots were fired? I should have left early, man I was tired It wasn’t good Maybe it was me who misunderstood That because you could, you actually would Because you could

Out of the warmth and into the night September breeze has got a hold of the trees Nothing in particular weighing on my mind As the sky opens up Alone in the darkness, soaked to the skin Time for reflection, where to begin? Too blind to see Too blind to see Got to keep moving, can’t stand still Everything’s distorted and it’s testing my will So many questions, so little time So little time Alone in the darkness, soaked to the skin Time for reflection, where to begin? Too blind to see Too blind to see

I’m going to watch your garden grow I’m going to watch your garden grow And there is something you should know I’m going to watch your garden grow Old man sitting by the side of the road I’m going to stop and talk awhile He says I know exactly what you’ve done Picked me up and threw me straight into the sun I’m going to watch your garden grow I’m going to watch your garden grow And there is something you should know I’m going to watch your garden grow Old man still sitting by the side of the road Think I’ll stop and talk awhile I said I know exactly what you’ve done Picked him up and threw him straight into the sun
