The Depression It ruined us It ruined us It ruined us The Depression It ruined us It ruined us It ruined us Oh Marilyn Everything When the market crashed Our hopes were dashed We lost everything Everything When the winter came We lost everything Couldn't afford to stay Oh Marilyn We’d really like to keep you in Oh Marilyn We’d really like to keep you in Memories Disparate memories Of New York In the 1930s Memories Of the frozen lake And the way we tried To keep her safe Oh Marilyn There was no one left at home to let you in Oh Marilyn There was no one left at home to let you in

I want to hold you But every time I try Something keeps you Out of reach I want to love you But every time I try Something keeps Love away And I can feel it So love me right now Though it won't last Girl don't make me try 'Cause I'll lose you forever Every time Every time But every time I try To put our love out Like a fire You keep me in your reach And every time I try To throw away my desire You hold me So close And I can feel it So love me right now Though it won't last Girl don't make me try 'Cause I'll lose you forever Every time Every time There must be a way 
To feel like I used to feel before
 Before it all went wrong There must be a way 
To feel like I used to feel before
 Before it all went wrong Before I thought that love 
Could never be
 Before I felt your body
 Next to me There must be a way 
To get back to where we were before 
Before it all went wrong There must be a way 
To get back to where we were before 
Before it all went wrong Before I thought that love
 Could never be 
Before I felt your body
 Next to me

Ten Nights 09:14
Storybook fable is ending As ten angels are descending I forget that you Are my only friend Love is my only devotion Ten little steps to the ocean Ten nights to decide Whether I can live alone Ten nights all alone Praying you haven’t gone I can’t stop love I can’t erase What’s been written down Storybook fable is ending As ten angels are descending I forget that you Are my only friend

Tangerine 11:15
I see The lie through the seal Lie through the seal Tonight Through the seal I’ll make the lie my own Mary won’t know This time White fields Of rain over me Rain over me In time White seas This claim distills me Mary won’t drink This wine

Lorelei 07:24
I don't want to fight your war tonight Put away all your guns and knives I am waiting Lorelei I don't want to see the streets tonight I am so weary and so tired I am waiting Lorelei Violence holds The scene below People act out their paces Go through their places Burn all the traces We alone Carry forth We are two so despite what you do Despite what you see Don't give up We're gonna be free Lorelei

Walked away Released from all my crimes Walked away Released from all my crimes But I could never hide What I kept inside Walked away Released from all my sins Walked away Released from all my sins But the cruelest thing Was all my suffering When I held you that night I knew it felt so right I knew it felt so right Walked away Released from all my crimes Walked away Released from all my crimes But I could never hide What I kept inside

Ray Of Light 15:32
Ray of light I never see Through the passing clouds Or through the trees When you left Into the pouring rain I knew I’d never See you again Ray of light Won’t shine through When love is through When love is through Late one night I heard you at my door But I pretended like I wasn’t home Please forgive Me for what I’ve done But you know I would’ve done it Like I did before Ray of light Won’t shine through What can I do What can I do Ray of light I never see Through the passing clouds Or through the trees When you left Into the pouring rain I knew I’d never See you again Ray of light Won’t shine through When love is through When love is through

Three o’clock in the morning Snowing and I can’t go home Coming down in Kingston Christmas Eve the roads are closed Just like Walter Gibson Knowing what the Shadow knows And on their way From Saratoga They burned our fields They burned our homes Candy shop quartet Free coffee and chocolate Dreaming of the pine needles Waiting for my next set Hallucinating wonders Drying out like Benedict And on their way From Saratoga They burned our fields They burned our homes They burned our homes They burned our homes Commander of the troops I tried to capture Bemis Heights Talking in tongues They couldn’t get to me on time Forced to retreat I turned and ran to safety in the pines And on their way From Saratoga They burned our fields They burned our homes
9.
From the dust I come To the the dust I return From the dust I come To the the dust I return From the roofs I cry From the roofs I cry From the roofs I cry From the roofs I cry From the dust I come To the the dust I return From the dust I come To the the dust I return -- Take me to the blue line Take me to the blue line Lift me up Drop me down Into the middle Of the cold, cold ground She was born In a diamond shack Three wise men Said she's coming back Take me to the blue line Take me to the blue line Through purple skies And seas of red Silver raindrops Fill with dread She’s so lean From a golden hue Bursting forth Coming back to you Take me to the blue line Take me to the blue line

Spiritual 09:12
Jesus I don’t want to die alone Jesus, oh Jesus I don’t want to die alone My love wasn’t true Now all I have is you Jesus, oh Jesus I don’t want to die alone Jesus If you hear my last breath Don't leave me here Left to die a lonely death I know I have sinned But lord I’m suffering Jesus, oh Jesus If you hear my last breath Jesus I don’t want to die alone Jesus, oh Jesus I don’t want to die alone My love wasn’t true Now all I have is you Jesus, oh Jesus I don’t want to die alone All my troubles All my pain Will leave me once again
