this one's for you charlotte... this one's for you charlotte but your ears are elsewhere, charlotte from the corner of harcourt road and charlotte street i weep... tears freeze on my cheek, and in your hair, the air there turned to snow as you turned to go. encore un verre du vin, charlotte et on va danser une valse, toi et moi on chante brassens et on flotte sur la rue du charlotte on parle d'amour dans la neige la tempete qui tombe comme une passion entre les paroles et cette passion ne parte jamais, je te jure mais tu tourne, quand-meme, et tu partes this one's for you charlotte but you couldn't be with us tonight so i sing to the glass in my hand and hear your voice from behind tu dit qu'on n'existe pas, que cette rue n'est pas vraiment la une larme reste dans ma voix quand je tourne aux yeux ferme aux mains tremblemants avec un rêve sous ma langue pour charlotte de l'espoir, d'avenir, d'une vie parfaite may i have this dance charlotte? this one's for you charlotte i lay my glass at your feet and watch it fill with snow as i turn to go

nunca máis 03:51
scraping my nails down to the bone picking up the mess of a world gone wrong we are figures of purity on an impure coast this beach was declared "safe" this afternoon but this evening we still need gas-masks and protective suits tomorrow we'll watch their children playing and picking oil from between their toes i've been in Spain now for a few nights and all i've learned to say is "qué coño" and "nunca máis" there's something wrong when the helpers are knee-deep in oil and those who it effects sit watching doing nothing at all the food destined for the volunteers got lost along the way and never quite made it here so we sit with sweating hands in the pouring rain continuing to scrape with our stomachs grumbling all this petty squabbling among the powers that preside in the midst of a tragedy still growing in size how many square inches are left to clean in 550 miles of this blackened coastline fingerful by fingerful we'll persevere and pick up these 77,000 tons of this enormous tragedy this can never happen again open up your eyes we'll march to those responsible and sing with one voice nunca máis never again

tuesday afternoon has been hijacked james-bond-style hit the monuments, kill thousands of people but save the big prick 'til last like we should care more 'cause we know his name but i care more that tonight there's a thousand families with one less brother or sister to love and there's a thousand families missing a mother or a father with love from america the land of the free where you can do anything you want to but i've said it before and i'll say it again that the freedom is inside you and i want to do something about where we're going but i can't see where that is not with this kind of blind and greedy and selfish act you'd better hope that the cause comforts you when you lie awake at night but i hope you're plagued and haunted every second of every day with the thought that there's a thousand families with one less brother or sister to love and there's a thousand families missing a mother or a father with love from america

it's been a long journey from the pacific and we know we're looking a bit pale but we're here to confirm the rumours that there is a better way we've been confined to the waters of the bathtubs with some snotty nosed kid playing god when all we really want to do is take to the waves and bob well, we left our confines in big plastic bags and bobbed until we broke free we bobbled all the way to the western world and still bobble in liberal glee so this is a song for all of you ducks who've been couped up for far too long to come bobbing for freedom or just for fun so come bob and sing along we're bobbling bobbling small yellow ducks we're bobbling can't you see we're bobbling bobbling just for fun we're bobbling bobbling free

sweet dreams 04:51
from here the city seems so peaceful it probably does from where you are too and this is my dream, i've offered her so many lines or am i hers for the words that she provides? the sea off to the east is like a tongue of fire caressing the yellow city's side and it's keeping you warm in there where you lie as your eyes accept the night sweet dreams my love i hope these words find your ears for i couldn't find you this evening though as i searched i swore you were there the stars grace the night one for every dreamer below and i see yours peek through a hole in the clouds and wish a dream into your night and i hope it's one you'll love 'til morning when it flutters down and becomes a drop of dew come find me that's where i'll be waiting with dawn i'll be waiting there for you sweet dreams my love i hope these words find your ears for i couldn't find you this evening though as i searched i swore you were there sweet dreams my love i whisper on the wind and though i may not be sleeping i'm still dreaming of you
