Palisades Park

  		

Intro - Piano & Horn 
-------------------- 

G#      C#              A#              A#      C#      G# 

C#  G#        x 2 

C#  G# 
Somebody screamed and all of Jim Jeffries' dreams 
                F# 
Explode into a black fist, he falls to the floor 
C#  G# 
He stares up at the sky and he may wish he knew why 
                 F# 
But you can't go back there no more 

A# 
Future sounds so crazy 
          G# 
We've all heard that song before 
A# 
Tomorrow's the name we change from yesterday to blame 
                          G# 
When the train just don't stop here anymore 


C#  G# 
I got starry-eyed on the coaster ride 
                  F# 
Andy says, "man I need a break from the world outside" 
         C#  G# 
These days my life just careens through a pinball machine 
                          F# 
I could do so much better but I can't get off the tilt 

              A# 
And there's a photograph on the TV 
                G# 
Black and white and Andy says something to you 
A# 
Jack Johnson straddling Reno, Nevada like 
              G# 
She says, "I forget myself sometimes too" 
A# 
Out past the doorways where we are sleeping 

          D# 
Well, the white queens creep 

And the Tom cats peep 


Chorus 
------ 

    C# 
Now I'm not breaking, 
    D# 
The train's just shaking, 
  G#                            C# 
I never made it here before, 
C#                                        D# 
There's a white mouse spinning the girls around, 
G#                      C# 
'Til they can't take it anymore 

           C# 
I used to dream in the dark  
   D# 
of Palisades park 
G# 
Up over the cliffs and  
C# 
down among the sparks 
C# 
It's a long life 
D# 
Full of long nights 
           A#             D#           C#             
But it was not what I was waiting for 
F#              F                           A# 
Everybody's seen the horses diving down the shore 
        F                               A# 
It's a miracle they don't make them anymore. 


G# 
So make up ladies, wake up baby 

C#  G# 
You walked into the bar like some Saturday star 
                  F# 
Stud-straight on spiked heels and needles and nerves, 
C#  G# 
You're a down town pride, fully amplified Clyde, 
              F# 
Gin-tight and aging but well-preserved, 
         A# 
Remember Andy outside your bedroom window, 
                        G# 
Saying "come on, let's drive across to the Palisades" 
     A# 
Keep going 'til we hit Reno, Nevada 
                  G# 
I don't see Andy all that much these days, 
                 A# 
Still there are pages in back, 

Of the action stacks 

            D# 
Where, the white queens creep 

And the Tom cats peep and... 

         C# 
Now the trains not braking, 
     D# 
The track's just shaking, 
   G# 
I never made it here before, 
               C#                     D# 
And there's a sky rocket turning the world around, 
G#                       C# 
'Til I can't take it anymore 
C# 
You can carry that spark 
     D#  
from Palisades park 
G#                       C# 
Down over the cliffs and out into the dark 
C# 
It's a long life 
D# 
Full of long nights 
           A#             D#      C# 
But it was not what I was looking for 
F#                  F                        A# 
Everybody dreams of horses flying round the shore 
        F                             A# 
It's a bad dream we're not having anymore 

G# 
Man, 
          A# 
Have you seen Andy? 
     G# 
Hey man hey man! 
                     A# 
Have you seen him around? 
     G# 
Hey man! 
                                    A#             
Have you seen my my my my my my my Andy? 
         G# 
Have you seen him? x 4 Hey! 
                      A# 
Have you seen Andy around? 

G# 
Dressed up in our pirate best 
     A# 
All leathers and feather and pearls 
          D# 
Andy said, "look at me man, I'm cooking these hands could 
G# 
Finger up this whole world" 
               D# 
He said, "come outside 
D# 
Climb out your bedroom window 
C# 
Shimmy down the fire escape and say good-bye 
D# 
Come outside" 
                                     A# 
Andy says, "I'm dressed up just like Edie 
                                                         G# 
Changing all the time my leopard spots to polka dots and say good-bye 
D# 
Come outside  
                    A# 
Well maybe we could move to California 
      C# 
Just meet me at the subway and say good-bye 
D# 
Come outside 
                          A# 
The cops all think we're crazy 

If you stay you'll just get married 
                             G#          
To a girl who'll never know you and then say good-bye 

G# 
Hey man, have you seen Andy? 
   A# 
I lost her in the sun 
      C# 
I was high as a kite on lovely and white 
               G# 
Man, you could lose anyone 
G# 
Hey hey man, have you seen Andy? 
A# 
I don't know where she's gone 
C# 
But real love outlives teenage lust 
                 G# 
We could get wet and it keeps us warm 
D# 
Love is like angel dust 

Lovely sometimes changes us 
   G# 
...sometimes not 

D# 
Have you bee aching to trust or just...? 
A# 
Have you been waking yourself with lust...? 
C#                                           A# 
Have you been making us up or just taking us home? 

G# 
It's a long wait 
C#  G# 
At a long light 
C#  G# 
Cars frozen in flight 
C#  G# 
All the traffic stops to stare 
A# 
At a crosswalk in Reno, Nevada 
C# 
Wearing nothing but air 
              A# 
And a pair of grey paper wings 
                      C# 
Andy thinks, "man, I have got nothing to wear" 
A# 
We got nothing new and 
C# 
We got nothing to wear 
C# 
We got nothing to wear 
C#              G# 
We got nothing to wear
