“accidentally ON PURPOSE” Lyrics

Clouds And Rain

the time is always now the call is always loud
without a movement a word, without a sound
love comes crashing in again
brings along the clouds and rain

you’ve got to take a chance you haven’t got a choice
somewhere in the rain you hear a distant voice
love has to come to stake its claim it’s
when you reach the clouds and rain

if i close my eyes i can picture you
this is the place i get the clearest view
beyond the happiness and pain
this place they call the clouds and rain

first you become a lover then you become a friend
and then you start to wonder will it ever end
i’d like to ask you just the same
without feeling any shame
did you touch the clouds and rain

i’d like to ask you just the same
without feeling any shame
did you touch the clouds and rain

Evil Eye

evil woman got a spell on me
she given me pain and misery
she don’t sell fish and she don’t sell meat
don’t sell nothin’ out on the street
she just goes ooh, ooh, …

this old lady got eleven eyes
everyone is a different size
no matter what I do no matter where I do it
she got an evil eye that can see right through it
me and my mamma got a bad shibumi
you can tell by the way she do she do me
mojo magic poison snakebite
black cat bone the stroke of midnight
when she go ooh, ooh, …

she touch my soul and I start to shake
she put her mojo on my face
baby, baby, baby, …
don’t you know that it drive’s me crazy
when you go ooh, ooh, …

She Took My Breath Away

alone in a crowd
talking to him but looking at her much too loud
i could not think what to say
one word in my ear from her lips
could lead me astray
she took my breath away…

hello what’s going on
unanswered questions confusing my words
which later I stumble upon
in a room painted green
quite clearly she was not what she seemed
but she was what she wanted to be
she took my breath away…

and now there was no doubt
with eyes like a laser that sliced me in two
her primitive signals upon me
her secret was out
well I know it’s gonna pass
she may be no more than a sigh in the night
the rhythm of danger can’t dance alone
whatever the reason it never was mine
i saw i felt my life
was going too fast, ah, at last
she took my breath away…
she took my soul
she took my breath away…

Dislocated

ears are screaming
vase a leaning tower
on my plate
at the party
there was no party
there was no suitcase
there was no back seat
there was no car
dislocated, dislocated, dislocated, dislocated

mine’s a double
in a china shop
around and round
the corner
there was no corner
there was no street light
there was no whisky
there was no bar

takamine
high to eye
believing well alone
my guitar
there was no guitar
there was no music
there was no lipstick
there was no bra

dislocated, dislocated, dislocated, dislocated

Via Miami

well i got a dirty feeling i need a change of clothes
where’s my suitcase nobody knows
i checked my bags in london, i waited in japan
here I am hiding in the can, well
giransanvellybadamellicatobrame
it must have gone via miami, yeh

i work hard every day saving up my cash
looking at my wallet she said no trash
honey i can tell you where you gotta invest
i’m blessed with a treasure chest
now sitting all alone at my table for two
she musta gone via miami

well lady luck, i’ll be a fool for you
i said you, you
you wanna ticket to the moon baby don’t you know
i’d even get a ticket for a springsteen show

i coulda been a winner if i’d played my cards
now i’m picking up junk in my backyard
coulda been a doctor but I caught a cold
i coulda been… or so i’m told
any chance that ever came my way
it musta gone via miami…

well lady luck, i’ll be a fool for you
i said you, you
if i offered you some advice
would you push my hand away and say no not tonight
i’m losing my mind, i’ve flipped my lid
mental ain’t the word, ‘cos she’s done my head
i ain’t a full shilling i’ve lost the plot
gone bananas i’m over the top
well, she checked the computer
what happend to my brain
it musta gone via miami
via miami…

I Can’t Dance To That

i don’t want money
if i can’t have love
and i don’t want love
if i can’t have a little fun
and i can’t have much fun if you put me on the stand
i can’t stand it oh no
any way you can you better find another man

i can’t dance to that
i can’t dance to that
she was a mean mother with an attitude
i can’t dance to that

don’t want my music
if i can’t choose it
and if you can’t use it
don’t make me cry
it makes me cry when you refuse to understand
i can’t stand it
oh no it ain’t the way we jammed

i can’t dance to that
i can’t dance to that
it’s enough to make a train take a dirt road
i can’t dance to that

i don’t want much
but it’s gotta be real
ain’t gonna kneel in the name of jesus
don’t want my sweet jesus begging on tv
i can’t stand it
it brings me misery

i can’t dance to that
i can’t dance to that
you know i’m caught between the devil and the deep blue sea
i can’t dance to that

i can’t dance to that
i can’t dance to that
i can’t dance to that
i can’t dance to that

Can’t Believe You Wanna Leave

i can’t believe you wanna leave
when you know it’ll hurt me so
i’m down on bended knees
begging please not to go

think of all the love we shared
and all the fun we had
and now you wanna leave
don’t you know that it’ll drive me mad

my life my heart my love
is in your hands
and now you’re gonna leave me
you’re gonna leave me for another man

think of all the love we shared
all the fun we had
and now you’re gonna leave
baby don’t you know that it’ll drive me mad

my life my heart my love
is in your hands
and now you’re gonna leave me
you’re gonna leave me for another man

think of all the love we shared
all the fun we had
and now you’re gonna leave
don’t you know that it’ll drive me mad

Lonely Avenue

well my room has got two windows
but the sun shall never come through
it’s always dark and lonesome
since i broke off baby with you
i live on a lonely avenue
my girl wouldn’t say i do
well i feel so sad and blue
and it’s all because of you
you know i could cry, i could cry
cos i live on a lonely avenue, yes i do

well my covers they feel like lead
and my pillow feels like stone
well i’ve tossed and turned so everynight
i’m not used to being alone
i live on a lonely avenue
my girl wouldn’t say i do
well i feel so sad and blue
and it’s all because of you
you know i could cry yes i could cry
cos i live one a lonely avenue
yes i do

well i’ve been so sad and lonesome
ever since you left this town
if i could beg or borrow some money child
woulda been highway bound
but i live on a lonely avenue
my girl wouldn’t say i do
i feel so sad and blue
and it’s all because of you
you know i could cry, i could cry
i live on a lonely avenue
on a lonely avenue
lonely avenue

Telephone Box

i may be crazy but hear me well
don’t want to ding a linging on my bell
communication is a good thing
but i like to let the mother ring
there’s no extension on this line
i’ve lost your number tear up mine
who wants to live in a telephone box
who wants to live in a telephone box

i may be crazy but here i stand
the situation’s getting out of hand
there’s no escape no hideaway
you got loose change and nothing to say
the world’s getting smaller that’s for sure
i can’t stand it anymore
who wants to live that way
i can’t stand it no more

i may be crazy i may be wrong
but when the sun is hot and the grass is long
i wanna love you yes i do
i wanna do what’s good for me and you
reach a moment hot with tears
there’s a ringing in my ears
who wants to live in a telephone box
who wants to live in a telephone box

reach a moment hot with tears
there’s a ringing in my ears
who wants to live in a telephone box
who wants to live in a telephone box

i can’t stand it no more
who wants to live in a telephone box
i can’t stand it no more

I Thought No

… and then she came through the door
her high heels clackin’ on the floor
i was pissed i was blue
i had nothing better to do
i had to know what was going on
is this a natural born blonde

she gave the game away
the way she crossed her legs
i was a gambling man
but too proud to beg
something told me it was time to go
but then again i thought no

it didn’t take more than a minute
she blew me right away
it didn’t last more than an hour
when she told me it was time to pay
my investigations came to a sudden end
when she introduced me to a friend

i don’t exaggerate
but he was nine foot four
and he banged my head
before he slammed the door
i thought was this his way of saying hello
but my black eye thought no

Cayman Island

cayman, cayman island
cayman, cayman island

go diving on a coral reef
one eye open for the girls on the beach
chet and bob on the quabbin’ boat
oh life afloat

a piece of sugar at the port o’call
another day in paradise droppin’ off the wall
schoonerman look better on dry land
oh, life is grand

cayman, cayman island
cayman, cayman island

road warrior on the radio
seven o’clock he do a special show
balboa calling i can’t wait
oh, life is great

save money you can live tax free
while i go down on the carrie lee
running out of air like i knew i would
oh, life is good

cayman, cayman island
cayman, cayman island

red stripe on a fishing line
georgetown rain, west bay fine
another rum punch nothing is wrong
oh, life goes on

cayman, cayman island
cayman, cayman island

cayman, cayman island
cayman, cayman island

you make me this way
you make me this way
doesn’t really matter now
there goes another day

Purple People Eater

well i saw the thing coming out of the sky
it had one long horn and one big eye
i commenced to shakin’ and i said oo-wee
it looks like a purple people eater to me
it was a one-eyed one-horned flying purple people eater
one-eyed-one horned flying purple people eater
sure looks good to me

well he came down to earth and he lit in a tree
i said mr purple people eater don’t eat me
i heard him say in a voice so gruff
i wouldn’t eat you ‘cos you’re too tough
it was a one-eyed one-horned flying purple people eater
one-eyed one-horned flying purple people eater
sure looks strange to me

i said mr purple people eater what’s your line
he said eatin’ purple people and it sure is fine
but that’s not the reason that i came to land
i wanna get a job in a rock’n roll band
well bless my soul rock’n roll flyin’ purple eater
pigeon-toed under-growed flyin’ purple eater
one-eyed one-horned it was a people eater
what a sight to see

well he swung from the tree and he lit the ground
he started to rock really rockin’ around
it was a crazy ditty with a swingin’ tune
wop bop a lula wop bam boom
one-eyed one-horned flying purple people eater
one-eyed one-horned flying purple people eater
ooh it sure looks strange to me

well he went on his way and then what do you know
i saw him last night on a tv show
he was a blowin’ it out and really knockin’ them dead
playing rock’n roll music through the horn in his head
