Pick me up, up From this filthy ground Give me a little love Lord knows I need it now From a tiny hand I fell suddenly Before I even landed I had drifted off to sea I will move beneath the air And I'll miss being in a pair And I'll hope through and through One day I'll be one of two As my woolen threads Turn hard with ice and salt I dream of my only friend And how his sadness is all my fault I won't know how far I've traveled When I wash up on your shore Though I may be a bit unraveled Please open up your door I will move beneath the air And I'll miss being in a pair And I'll hope through and through One day I'll be one of two One of two, one of two... Smile, or even laugh When you pick me up from the street And give me back my other half Mismatched just for me Mismatched for me, mismatched for me Mismatched for me, mismatched Perfectly to me

I long, I long for a time That's frozen in black and white A country that's lost its shine Somewhere in the darkness of night But I'm still holding on Holding on tight Bob, Bob and Suze Had something, something to say The poet, the poet had his muse But now that dog has had its day And we have got to find our own way Yes we have got to find our own way Why don't we stay up all night Howling by the firelight? The stars fall down and the sun comes up This life is short, so fill your cup Up, up, up, up The tide, the tide's gotta change But the moon, the moon is lazy Looking for someone to blame Well it makes things just a little bit hazy And I'm not gonna wait for someone to save me No I'm not gonna wait for someone to save me No I'm not gonna wait for someone to save me

Yesterday I saw you on the street But for some reason my eyes you wouldn't meet Maybe you were busy looking at the ground That's so unsound beneath your little feet Instead of going on my merry way Thought I'd come over to you darling, and say Say... I just wanna know dear where you're going 'Cause Lord, I think I know from where you've come Hey, let's not pretend we don't both be knowing The years ain't slowing down You're a little lonely So walk with me Baby, walk with me Knowing me I couldn't get up the nerve And so I let you swagger, swing on round the curve Curling up my collar against the chill That I could still feel as I wondered still Still.. I just wanna know dear where you're going 'Cause Lord, I think I know from where you've come Hey, let's not pretend we don't both be knowing The years ain't slowing down You're a little lonely So walk with me Baby, walk with me Oh, turned out that cold wind was my good friend As it was pushing, pulling me to the sidewalk's end And stepping down I lifted up my head And there you stood, and you said I just wanna know dear where you're going 'Cause Lord, I think I know from where you've come Hey, let's not pretend we don't both be knowing The years ain't slowing down We won't be lonely now Oooh... Not lonely now, not lonely now

Let's go walk to the trees And then we'll see what's going on What's glowing, aw Smoke, drink, do what you please We're all just knowing that The wind keeps blowing I've never made so much noise As when I behaved like one of our own lost boys Oh Dogtown, take me home Going out or coming in 'Cause even if the barkeep's gone We've still got the gin Sit down under the stars And move your feet through yellow leaves Through lovers and thieves Who knows where's too far We're all just believing In what we're seeing I've never felt so alone As when I arrived in a place that I once called home Oh Dogtown, take me in Through the longest night When you're in the bed of sin It always feels all right It always feels all right Let's go walk to the sea And then we'll feel what's going on What's glowing, aw Who knows who we'll be The tide just keeps on flowing without you or me... Dogtown, take me home Going out or coming in Even if, even if the barkeep's gone Oh, I said, Dogtown, take me home Going out or coming in 'Cause even if the barkeep's gone...
