    Lyrics
    These chords are old but we shake hands,
    Cause I believe that they're the good guys,
    We can use all the help we can,
    So many minor chords outside.
    I fell in love with the sound,

    Lyrics
    Peter said to Paul you know all those words we wrote
    Are just the rules of the game and the rules are the first to go... But now talking to God is Laurel, begging Hardy for a gun
    I got a girl in the war man, I wonder what it is we done
    Paul said to Peter "you got to rock yourself a little harder"
    Pretend the dove from above is a dragon, and your feet are on fire But I got a girl in the war Paul the only thing I know to do

    Lyrics
    I still remember that time when we were dancing We were dancing to a song that I?d heard Your face was simple and your hands were naked I was singing without knowing the words But I started listening to the wolves in the timber Wolves in the timber at night I heard their songs when I looked in the mirror In the howls and the moons round my eyes
    So long, so high
    Then winter came and there was little left between us Skin and bones of love won?t make a meal I felt my eyes drifting over your shoulder There were wolves at the edge of the field But I still remember that time when we were dancing We were dancing to a song that I?d heard Your face was simple and your hands were naked I was singing without knowing the words
    So long, so high
    Then one day I just woke up And the wolves were all there Wolves in the piano Wolves underneath the stairs Wolves inside the hinges Circling round my door At night inside the bedsprings Clicking cross the floor I don?t know how they found me I?ll never know quite how I still can?t believe they heard me That I was howling out that loud

    Lyrics
    Deep in the belly of a whale I found her
    Down with the deep blue jail around her
    Running her hands through the ribs of the dark
    Florence and Calamity and Joan of Arc
    I love the way she looks in her underwear

    Lyrics
    If I could trace the lines that ran
    Between your smile and your sleight of hand
    I would guess that you put something up my sleeve
    Now every time I see your face the bells ring in a far-off place
    We can find each other this way I believe
