"Heartache City" (2015)

Forget Me Not lyrics - Cocorosie

In brown clown face, tattered paw, pine scraps
Fish bones, home phone
Dial broke, pocket sunk
In brown paper sack,
Face, head, eyes black
Shadow tears, funny ears
Bird mouth, crumble ash
In black plastic bag,
Wounded snakes, slaughtered skunk
No grey flawless, dead deer
Shocked eyes
Open sky, velvet ropes
VIP heavenward, waywardly staggered drunk
Wounded stag, limp your way to paradise, limp your way to paradise
Now I'm wondering if I close my eyes and I fall back in time

[Chorus:]
If only I could remember you
Your name on a tree your blood inside of me
Your songs all unsung, your thoughts all unspun
Where would you live, where would you dance
How would you make love, who would be your dove
If only I could remember you, if only, if only [x2]

The fallen mirror bounces back
Some of moon's gentle laugh
Sudden echo, soft attack
Mushrooms glittering on this path
There's only one way to find out who dared slayed the deer
Left the eyes for the flies, then retreated into the brown grass
Bed of pine, needles prickling
The smallest manger fit for girl kings
Chicken bones and pervert winks
Dime bags and plastic rings
I still remember our first phone number
They circle me with genders and colors flickering
Like demons of diamonds of nothing, flickering
I'm wondering if I'll close my eyes and fall back in time
Could I remember, could I

[Chorus x3]

Un Beso lyrics - Cocorosie

My mother calls it gypsy lifting
I'm going to get a bag
The wind is just right
And the violets think so too
I think I spy a chat
Making a poo

I'd like to gypsy-lift the stars
And send one out to you
You, who are you
Someone with no dandruff
Perhaps brown eyes a derelict
A dandy

I'm out shopping in my canoe
Finger frolicking the fireflies
Finger fucking firewood
Spying on the masturbating snails
Hollyhocks and cat tails
Boneless jelly fish and whales
Perhaps I'll meet you then
On the decadent horizon
Where young lovers lock lips
Looking at the lockness monster

Phooey, phooey, hence cabluey
Gypsying-lifting on a hand stand
Little fawny, dawn-lit and scrawny
Daryl, Jordan, Henry and Johnny

(Buttermilk molasses, sugar tooth and grasses)
Un beso, un beso
You tear me apart
(Buttermilk molasses, sugar tooth and grasses)
Un beso, un beso
Your palm on my heart
(Buttermilk molasses, sugar tooth and grasses)
Un beso, un beso
You tear me apart
(Buttermilk molasses)
Un beso, un beso
Your palm on my heart

(Buttermilk molasses, sugar tooth and grasses)
Un beso, un beso
You tear me apart
(Buttermilk molasses, sugar tooth and grasses)
Un beso, un beso
Your palm on my heart
(Buttermilk molasses, sugar tooth and grasses)
Un beso, un beso
You tear me apart
(Buttermilk molasses)
Un beso, un beso
Your palm on my heart

It's just me the chimney sweep
Little bo-peep
Tending to her sheep
Eating her curds and way
Daryl Hanna, get a grip
It's only the first season
Of the end of your career
Nightmares and dreams
Harlequins and queens
Who is my truest love
Don't make me take my finger out
And point it in your direction
The bible tells me so
Gee wiz

He's out shopping in the trees again
Moss on trees, moss on trees, moss on trees
Broken branches, avalanches
Who's got the keys to my jeep
Who's got the code to the condo of my soul
Out robbing graves again like Marilyn Manson
I'll admit I'm popular amongst the ivies and the ferns
Can't say if the felines took to me
Out robbing graves again like Marilyn Manson

Un beso, un beso
You tear me apart
Un beso, un beso
Your palm on my heart
Un beso, un beso
You tear me apart
Un beso, un beso
Your palm on my heart

(Buttermilk molasses, sugar tooth and grasses)
Un beso, un beso
You tear me apart
(Buttermilk molasses, sugar tooth and grasses)
Un beso, un beso
Your palm on my heart
(Buttermilk molasses, sugar tooth and grasses)
Un beso, un beso
You tear me apart
(Buttermilk molasses)
Un beso, un beso
Your palm on my heart

Un beso, un beso (un beso, un beso)
You tear me apart
Un beso, un beso
Your palm on my heart

Lost Girls lyrics - Cocorosie

Warming the hearts of tragic hoodlum spirits
Brighten the eyes of petty thieves who crawl at night
Who feign to use a knife
Jingle jangle the cosmo's are on fire
The blazing lines of the criminal choir
Rejoiced to be alive
Broken and depraved
Sullied mop and rusted pail
Centuries of poison to escape this heaven or hell
This earthly cell of dead flowers and so many wounded foes
It's hard to remember fantasy or horror
Unwanted caresses
Little Lolitas who want to be held in large hands

Dear Father, who art in heaven
Hallowed by thine name
Witches confused by their own magic
Witches displeased by their own perfume
Shame-locked women
Shaman women fuming with shame
Love-locked women
Women their own magic women
Shadow body, shadow spirit
White blood, blue night
Angels lyrics
Female creature wilted high in the raftors
Orgies of dust and butterfly laughter
Shadows spilling into the babe's milk
Sorry eyes of ghost's memoir
Four blue plus two, that makes six
That's twelve times two
Two brown eyes, one green
Hazel's asleep in the hayloft
Down the road drowning in dry grass
In the sweet maiden's lap poisened with nightshade
Witches last laugh
Stick your thumb out
Lift up your skirt
Someone's gonna stop here soon

Take down your hair and wind up your grin
Someone's gonna take you home
Stick out your thumb and lift up your skirt
Someone's gonna stop here soon
Take down your hair and wind up your grin
Someone's gonna take you home

Even though red's not your color
I'll dress you in feathers
And fly you in the windy weather
Like a child bird marooned on an island of cats
Little dewy brawling cats
With cross-eyed and hats
They take mercy on you
They take you for walks
The mercy choir singing dismal hymns
Watery bible rhymes
All jumbled a mess
A mess of bright graves and flowers and balloons

Stick out your thumb
And lift up your skirt
Someone's bound to stop here soon
Take down your hair and wind up your grin
Someone's gonna take you home

Stick out your thumb and lift up your skirt
Someone's bound to stop here soon
Take down your hair and wind up your grin
Someone's gonna take you home

Stick out your thumb and lift up your skirt
Someone's bound to stop here soon
Take down your hair and wind up your grin
Someone's gonna take you home

With a knapsack of trinkets
I'm off to seek my fortune again
Chasing ghosts of dead orphans
Friend, cousin, or kin
We wave to the passer by
Moth wings of a butterfly
Endless tracks where no car pass
Close your eyes and you can fly
I'm off to meet my soul mate
A naked fawny jail bate
Wading into ponds
Filly with pollywogs at dawn
Mournin' the light
That slipped from my eyes
A little child with dirty nails
And dirty hair
I had dirty things scrawled upon my mind

Stick out your thumb and lift up your skirt
Someone's gonna stop here soon
Take down your hair, wind up your grin
Someone's gonna take you home

Stick out your thumb and lift up your skirt
Someone's gonna stop here soon
Take down your hair, wind up your grin
Someone's gonna take you home

Stick out your thumb and lift up your skirt
Someone's gonna stop here soon
Take down your hair, wind up your grin
Someone's gonna take you home

Stick out your thumb and lift up your skirt
Someone's gonna stop here soon
Take down your hair, wind up your grin
Someone's gonna take you home

Heartache City lyrics - Cocorosie

Give me some news
I have to know
By wind or by winding road
I have to know

My brother sin of sin
Tin cup rain goes straight to the brain
Just like a bullet
You attacked and stuck
You know I love you like Diane cluck

My sweet thing now your dead
Disappeared to fog
Like the neighbors dog
I know you love me
And you meant no harm
So all is forgiven from the dusty farm

Give me some news
I have to know
By wind or by winding road
I have to know

Don't forget all the times
I nearly died
In your arms like a daisy
Hot on a farm
My torture was thus I took what I must
Had to have you had to know
Now polished and pressed
Dressed to impress you falling all around
I'm outside the door
On you garden's floor
Bareing bossom a blossom
Soul reeking awesome

My lover ravaged thing
Heartache city don't go there again
Flicker your fire
But don't get burned
You know I love you ash to the urn

My holy unpredictable
My fable teller
My starry stellar
You know I loved you from first eyes we met
And now I'm ready red hot and wet

Give me some news
I have to know
By wind or by winding road
I have to know

The Tower Of Pisa lyrics - Cocorosie

There was an old woman who sat in the tree
On the side of the road
The other side of the hill
There was a river rushing by with no time to say hello
And have you seen my daughter
No time to say hello
Have you seen my son

Please excuse me mister
No time to say hello
No time to say hello
No time at all
Please excuse me mister
Have you seen my daughter
Have you seen my daughter
Have you seen my daughter

Hexed by a wizard some years prior
She lives cross-eyed like the Tower of Pisa
She was born in the prettiest
Of six girls
Now toothless can't even get a job
With no time to say hello
And have you seen my daughter
No time to say hello

Please excuse me mister
Have you seen my daughter
I'm her only mother
I'm your only mother
I'm your only mother
I'm her only mother
I'm your only mother
I'm your only mother
I'm her only mother
I'm your only mother
I'm your only mother
I'm your only mother
I'm your only mother

Tim And Tina lyrics - Cocorosie

She was 29
Mother of one
Blond son
He liked butterflies
She was married
So was he
To a liar
She wanted free
She got remarried
Another three
Brown, blue eyed babies
Had demon she

He had a gap
His mind was cracked
He was all looks
And coq-fight, fire
Steel blue, heart of sapphire
The rhythm of his thoughts
Were counter-clock
White wizard, black, chicken and fox
Heart locked in a box with horseshoes
And crystals and butterfly wings
Destiny may have broken your home
But you dance to awfully crude beat
You stepped on her shoes
And murdered the clues
Of the light filled forks in the road
You turned all her pages
In rapid succession
You flew to the end
And you skipped the last [?]
You mistook magic for love
And love for obsession
He liked butterflies

Broken mirror, cheap tutu
Kissing in the photo-booth
Freeze and smile now, don't move

She's watching whales
2000 miles away
And can't remember much
Ooh, they were so cool

Big And Black lyrics - Cocorosie

It's white trash Sunday
On the farm
I see the telephone wires
The way they go and go into the distance
And I hear the cars passing by
And the wicked tree branches reaching out
They try to catch the moon
With their long black nails
Try to catch a dream passing by
Like a cloud in the sky

Oh I see an orange cat
He always runs away at night
And a fox in the field, what's the deal
I'm walking long the tracks
Where the mighty tractor has passed
Looks like the spine of a dinosaur back
I bet he was big and black
Oh I bet he was big, big and black
Gave all the others a heart attack
Oh it's hard being big and black
He gave all the creatures a heart attack

Oh it must be hard being big and black
Giving everyone a heart attack
They pull the pistols without second thoughts
And Bam Bam Bam, he got shot

Lucky Clover lyrics - Cocorosie

There was a summer breeze
All things a blurry dream
In the shade of the tree
There's no more lucky clover
It's the last September ever
If you fall in love with me
So who's your mama now?
Now that it's all over
'Cause you've got to set me free
Oh, you've got to set me free
Oh, you've got to set me free

Shadow in a thicket
A dog sounding yonder
Barks a bother
Windy Christian music tickling a-lofty
Hear the seashells chatter
The black berriless makes a mutter
We're all searching for our mother
Broken hearted brother
Bloody nose, toes, horse hoof and thunder
I'm standing in the open
I'm wondering where I am now
A solitary soldier saluting heavenwards and nothing
The tiny song of bramble
You know her amble movements
She's been here now forever
Mother nature clever
So who's your daddy now?
Now that it's all over
There's no more lucky clover
It's the last September ever

There's no more lucky clover
It's the last September ever
So who's your daddy now?

There was a summer breeze
All things a blurry dream
In the shade beyond the tree
There's no more lucky clover
It's the last September ever
If you fall in love with me
So who's your mama now?
Now that it's all over
'Cause you've got to set me free
Oh, you've got to set me free
Oh, you've got to set me free

What happened to the old tire swing?
Swung too many swungses
Oh burned-out foxhole of childhood longing
Yearning for the summer
School will soon be over
There ain't nothing to kiss but a bull frog and a horse hoof
Pile of dung
Cracked out and bee stung
Rainwater flow through the money tracks
Tractor tracks, tire tracks
I hear footsteps the ghosts of cats
Might be that old Tom who got murdered by the nurse
Who rides that old motorcrycle?
Maybe someone young and virile
I want a cup of tea so bad it's making my world...
Get hold of yourself, Grandpa!
Do you want to take me beachcombing, world roaming?
Do you want to be my partner?

There was a summer breeze
All things a blurry dream
In the shade of the tree
There's no more lucky clover
It's the last September ever
If you fall in love with me
So who's your mama now?
Now that it's all over
'Cause you've got to set me free
Oh, you've got to set me free
Oh, you've got to set me free
Oh, you've got to set me free, set me free
Oh you've got to, you've got to set me free, set me free

No One Knows lyrics - Cocorosie

A train pulls through the mountain
Singing with a whistle
Riding through the moonlight
No one knows she goes there

"Tales Of A Grass Widow" (2013)

After The Afterlife lyrics - Cocorosie

Welcome to the afterlife...

Sitting by the river, I think I smell some rain
Silver puddles glitter behind the old jail
Wet snails get wetter, crawling towards perfume
The air silks like snow
Moth wings crumble by a day-lit fire
Ash of dead wood pile
Higher, pyre for false gods,
Blazing mires

Welcome to the afterlife...

High afternoon times, afterlife times,
Twilight's best for Venus flytrap
Cloudless drops tear at my cheeks
Brusque speak a raven beak
Neon stars twinkle in the night
Sage smoke, rainbow, money signs

Welcome to the afterlife...

Tears For Animals lyrics - Cocorosie

Do you have love for humankind?
Do you have love for humankind?
Do you have love for humankind?
Do you have love for humankind?

Heart so hollow I tried to swallow
Pistols, nightshade, ghosts and gallow
All you fellows climbed me like a staircase, wore me down
Smooth from footfall, wore me down
(Wore me down)

Do you have love for humankind?
Do you have love for humankind?
Do you have love for humankind?
Do you have love for humankind?

So long sweet thing, my old man,
Left me grieving, black and blue and tan
I've the feeling you'll be kneeling
When the day turns forever into night

(Hope for healing if you're willing)

Do you have love for humankind?
Do you have love for humankind?
Do you have love for humankind?
Do you have love for humankind?

Orphan girl, child, sing along
Stop the slaughter of our daughters
Poisoning the water
(Do you have love for humankind?)
Heart strings broken, wearily tuned to the moon
Bastard widows born marooned
(Do you have love for humankind?)
Nameless, faceless black-eyed soul
Slave to sorrow, find your way home

Do you have love for humankind?
Do you have love for humankind?
Do you have love for humankind?
Do you have love for humankind?
Do you have love for humankind?
(Hope for healing if you're willing)
Do you have love for humankind?
(Hope for healing if you're willing)
Do you have love for humankind?
Do you have love for humankind?
Do you have love for humankind?
Do you have love for humankind?

Child Bride lyrics - Cocorosie

It’s hard to tell
This is my wedding night
I am dressed and ready
Beside my innocence
It is Hard to tell
Whose little girl am I
The man with the black hat
Will take me home tonight
I wash my body, five years grown
Promised father, leave me alone
Hope not too lonely
You pull away down the dusty road
Family waiting
Hope not too lonely

I watched the grass blow
Through the window
I am a good grass widow
I am a grass widow
News from the sparrow
My friendly fellow
They get along just fine without me
They are never lonely

I watched the flowers grow,
Outside my window
I am a good grass widow
I am a grass widow

Broken Chariot lyrics - Cocorosie

My love
My broken chariot
Despair
Oh, my love
My broken chariot
Despair
Oh, my love
