Lyrics
She can talk to anyone, and we can take this town
People are drawn to her sullen eyes, and they won’t hear a sound
I know where the diamonds live, tomorrow they won’t be found
People greet her with open arms, as I slip through the house

I know where the diamonds live, tomorrow they won’t be found
Unsuspecting, understand that we can take this town
Underestimating, understand that we will take this town

Lyrics
Hoppin’ around every place in town, tryin’ to buy some booze
Sixteen years and a full-grown beard and nothin’ much to lose

We’ve got nothin’ better to do than throw our empty cans at 

You will find a big surprise, something to come home to
And you’ll see i’m not the only one that hasn’t got a clue

We’ve got nothin’ better to do than trash your house and swear at

You can call my mother, see what she’ll do
But you’ll never catch this crazy fool

And you may find some peace of mind if you ever do
So you can just sit back and have a beer, ‘cause i’m just messin’ with you

We’ve got nothin’ better to do than throw our empty cans at you
We’ve got nothin’ better to do than trash your house and swear at you

Lyrics
I took my dog Chelsie to the vet, she did a number on the floor
It happened soon as I had turned my head, thought it was someone else’s dog for sure
I’m in denial

I bought this shirt at the second hand store, and I washed it soon as I got home
But then when I went to try it on, I smelt a smell I knew was not my own
I’m in denial

Sleep in, keep in that which gives you trouble
People will never know
I’m in denial

Lyrics
So hard to fathom that we have come this far this way
We didn’t know the price we would pay
So many days have come and gone before our eyes
So many friends have passed us by

I’m telling you, I’d take you anyplace
It just so happens I’m in love with you
Enchanted by your grace, I would spend another life with you

Remember summers when we were always on the run?
The energy we had when we were young...

I’m telling you, I’d take you anyplace
It just so happens I’m in love with you
Enchanted by your grace, I would spend another life with you

Lyrics
After all that we’ve been through, love’s been kind and true
Someone’s watchin’ over us, leading me to you

This is all that matters, I will stay with you
We’ve been torn and tattered, I will see this through

This is all that matters, I will stay with you
We’ve been torn and tattered, we will see this through

Lyrics
I’m goin’ to buy a coffin on four wheels
It’s got a red balloon tied to it and a helluva deal
It’s got a shiny black finish with chrome-plated detail
And when you’re in it, heaven

High-compression, turbo-charge, stiff suspension chassis
Zero-to-sixty in under six seconds
Fuel-injected intake manifold runners
Six-speed on the floor and you won’t catch it
Dead ringer for a sucker lookin’ for some action
A body to die for and you won’t forget it
And when you’re in it, heaven

I’m still hangin’ on, something soon is bound to change
I know this could be wrong, but i don’t know any other way
They may love you, they may show you in what they do or say
But they cannot save you unless you want to be saved

Here in Bloomington, Illinois, there is this best kept secret called the Blue Moon Coffeehouse (Illinois Wesleyan University's Memorial Center turns into a coffeehouse once in a blue moon, hence the name). 

It's really no secret actually, as you will notice if you come out this weekend to see Jill Sobule play a standing room only show for free.  How do I know it will be a standing room only crowd?  Because it is always like that, especially for artists like Jill Sobule and Susan Werner, who is another favorite of mine.  People cross state lines to come to see these shows, and for good reason.  This is a dream gig with a dream audience that actually listens to the songs, the words, and interacts with the artist to create the best show in the midwest on a given night.  The shows are usually at 8:00, but doors open earlier at 7:30. 

Anyway, Jill is awesome.  Come out to see a great singer-songwriter at this great venue, Saturday, April 15, 2006. 

It's an early show, in a non-smoking venue where people listen and love music performed by national touring acts, and it's free.  What more can you ask for?  If you get there before me and my wife, save us a seat!
