"My Knees"

Is is true, is she really after me?
Is she telling me what to do,
telling me what to do while I'm asleep?

They're not like you;
My hands, my mouth, my knees

What to do?
Hey, you ??think you care to meet??things you gave to me??
And not stop 'till I'm through
Not stop 'till my head is through the wall.

They're not like you;
my hands, my mouth, my knees.

Within you, me, you will never say
(Won't stop 'till we're through, won't stop 'till I'm through)
Won't stop 'till there is nothing left of us.

They're not like you;
my hands, my mouth, my knees

(This one was really hard to do because the music has much more guitars and distortion on the vocals. I really need help with the lyrics in the red). From listening to the song, i imagine is is someone of a double meaning song. I think it's sexual one "my hands, my mouth, my knees" but i think it's also open for interpretation for a religious perspective "my hands, my mouth, my knees" as in to kneel in prayer. Maybe with this in mind someone can figure out what she is saying in that part of the song.

"Catalina"

You've only been there a year
Can't imagine Catalina gone.
You can see the flames from the ballroom
coming down at long

Another tear to salt the butter on our daily bread
These prayers are meant to bring you back
Dancing through the fire of the dead.
(Something is said here and I don't know what it is)

With the **** out on the beach
With a heart say into the tall grass.
Like a black snake down the main stream.

Down the main stream, down the main stream.
You're an earthquake, you're an earthquake

Another tear to salt the butter on our daily bread
These prayers are meant to bring you back
Dancing through the fire of the dead.

Down the main stream, down the main stream.
You're an earthquake, you're an earthquake

(The Catalina lyrics need some work. I did them very quickly in one listen (since it's my least favorite song on the album. I'll edit them in the next couple of days).

"Make Me Laugh"

Make me laugh when it's goodbye
With the bills and the body count so high
We're out of bread, the water is red.
What a lousy photograph
So make me laugh

Make me laugh, keep you're lullaby
Who could sleep underneath a fallen sky?
The petrified, the bitter-bright,
Don't they need a paragraph to make them laugh?

Around this place, there is not a face
without sorrow's autograph.
But what could chase the tears and laze away?
Like a funny epitaph, make me laugh,
If birds should lose their song, if the sweet honey bees get up on go.

Through record highs, when oceans rise
Would you come bend me in half with a laugh?


(Probably my favorite lyrically speaking in the album. This song is gorgeous. To me it feels like a poem in song. It reminds me of innocence of childhood when the bad things were not in your mind.)


So there you have the 10 songs from the Weeping Cherry album. I cannot stress enough that I wrote these by ear and it is possible that some corrections may be needed. If you hear anything else or would like to share a corrections please let us all know. It would be greatly appreciated.
