Hi there !
I bought on amazon the new weeping cherry and sadly i didn't receive any digital booklet so no lyrics :(
The lyrics are on the Physical booklet or not ? If yes if someone can do something ?!
If not, perhaps, english native person can try to put them on this topic ?!

Thanx !

PS : I tried to contact Francisco but didn't get a reply. I guess the email link doesn't work...

Hi, Marcellus

Sorry about the late reply. I did not get your message. I'm not sure why because someone else on the forum has been sending me personal messages on the forum and I've received them without any problem.

As for the lyrics, it goes like this: They are not in the digital booklet but i have a copy of the digital booket if you want it. Also the "I miss you. I do" does not have lyrics available. I bout the vinyl copy of Weeping Cherry and they are not there. I have not yet received my CD copy of Weeping Cherry but it's almost a guarantee that it will not have them. Shivaree and Ambrosia has put lyrics on the album only once in their album "Rough Dreams". I'm not sure if it costs more to do that.

Anyway, i'm not a native English speaker but i'm very fluent and I'd be happy to go through the songs and post the lyrics here. It will just take me a while to do so. Perhaps in about one day or two.

Again, please excuse me for the replying sooner. Stay tuned.

"Empire"

Tuesdays, Thursdays, empty days and Sundays
and will they be back soon.
The cafe, the ash tray, the bridges are here
sailing on an empire afternoon.

Wrong day, slow time, nobody no cry
lone walk, low talk, don't drop that diamond.
Don't wanna go back, go back, go back to the neighborhood.

The weather the water, this roof, now you got us
a will they be back soon.

If the moon is on the benches by the entrance
in the trenches the entire afternoon.
Too bad, so true, it's late, i'm through
can't wait, I'd like to be told what to do.
Don't wanna go back, go back, go back to the neighborhood.

mmmmmmmm...
In no time at all, how cold it gets. It's snowing again.
Go place your bets.

On Tuesdays, Thursdays, empty days and Sundays
and will they be back soon.
The cafe, the ash tray, the bridges are here
sailing on an empire afternoon.

Wrong day, slow time, nobody no cry
lone walk, low talk, don't drop that diamond.
Don't wanna go back, go back, go back to the neighborhood.

(Please note that I wrote these lyrics by listening. I have a pretty good ear but I cannot guarantee anything because someone else may disagree) :mrgreen:

"Rubble"

I keep my closets closed
It's silly I suppose
But no one really knows
and I can't help it.
but I feel like He's on his way
and I'm in (so) so much trouble.

I never rest my head
too close to the head of the bed.
We'll I'm guessing he knows what I did.
I'm afraid, they will put me down
with the rubble. With the rubble.

I know it won't be long
until I'm here and then I'm gone.
There'll be no heart
to rest your head upon.
Look away when they put me down
with the rubble. With the rubble.

(This track is probably one of my favorites on the album based on lyrics alone. I think it's very open for interpretation. I've analyzed it many times and have thought about some really deep interesting possible meaning to the song)

"The Other Side"

Can't quiet my head
on this little bed, in this place on the public.
Not used to them. I've been on the other side
of the wall.

My matches are wet
who'll open the bottles?
Remember when you
were just right up the hall.

One went (on) on the market
One got lost at home.
One's been feeding the beast.
aaahhh...

Who'll watch my right shoulder
break our fall, let it get cold.
Then don't paint the devil on the wall.
On the wall.

One went on the market,
Once got lost at home,
One has been released.
aaahhh...

Who'll watch my right shoulder
break our fall, let it get cold.
Then don't paint the devil on the wall.
On the wall.


(again, I'm writing these by ear so if anyone wants to give it a listen and hears something else, let me know)

"My Hindenburg"

What remains it burst into flames and it's falling.
And what of the crew.
Are we just left here to wonder with you
chasing thunder instead.

Now your names, like rattling chains, my darling.
You accident you.
I still believe you'll come calling one night
you'll just craw into bed.

And on the ground we almost can't believe it.
You're out of time and we are all out of place.
You would never want to go and leave it.
Somehow we've been left without a trace.

Shoot out the light. It's over your head there swinging.
What did you do?
The blessed all-nighter that made you feel lighter than air.

It isn't right. You'll never be my ?????
Again for the night.
I still believe you'll come calling one night
you'll just craw into bed.

And on the ground we almost can't believe it.
You're out of time and we are all out of place.
You would never want to go and leave it.
Somehow we've been left without a trace.

I made just retire. My heart is a live.
And yours is right there, 300 feet in the air.

And on the ground we almost can't believe it.
You're out of time and we are all out of place.
You would never want to go and leave it.
Somehow we've been left without a trace.

(Someone please see if you can figure out what she says where i have the question marks. I believe she says something like Great DuMont but i'm not sure).

This is it for today. I'll be back to give the other songs a try :ugeek:

"Weeping Cherry"

That was no way for a queen to end.
What's under her bed never used to be a dark thing.
And now in the warm shade of the spring
They're gathering at the gates.

These trees will be in shock for years.
I did it really good.

That was no way for his queen to end.
He was standing on his head.
Flesh and blood, weeping cherry.

Please just go back to your room
and be glad tomorrow.
We're no good pretending.
Who are we just ??? in love??

Sticks and stones have missed us by miles
But wipe the relief from your brow
And sweet love fix your bones
The tiger is in the air
blood in the ground is all that can save us now.

(wow, this was a difficult one. I must have listened to it 4 times to figure it out. Again, I encourage you to listen and correct anything)

"Skin and Bones"

Hey mystery, come paint my face
no laughing, no dancing
just look at this place.
You can have all the butterflies back.
Listen here I'll volunteer be right back.
Just please leave him alone.

Fast and easy, mean and slow
what's the difference let him stay I'll go.

I'm skin and bones so just leave him alone.
Won't you please, look at me, understand.

oooowop...ooowop..oooooo

Well history, all washed and unsaid?
I've left my best dress and my shoes on the bed.
Listen here, said this could be fun.
I swear I'll kick and scream 'till you're done.

I'm skin and bones so just leave him alone.
Won't you please, look at me, understand.

I'll take the great unknown
all the beauty's been gone
from the sky, from the sea, from the sand.

(Here is another one in which I think I did fairly good but I've put a question mark where I was not certain of it's contents)

"Only Just Fine"

I wonder if it's too late now
Aren't we lonesome my loving howl
Could that star we've been wishing on
have been gone for years?

It might be too late to come in
for the love of one on the chin.
How could anyone ever win?
Let's begin the tears.

You are loving me on a thin line
Holding my hand along mine.
Is it all wrong or only just fine?

Well, I'm expecting an icy rain
No more sunshine or sugar cane.
We must be dreaming.

But what if this could explain
how you are loving me on a thin line
once in a while in the sunshine.
Is it all wrong or only just fine?

Can't you see we're out of sand
out of chances and out of hand.
Oh, but who couldn't understand that it's too late now.

(this is one of my fave tracks on the album. Musically is very different than anything before but yet reminds me so much of "It got all black". If that makes sense).
