Hello I don't feel as if I know you You take up all my time The days are long and the nights will blow you away 'Cuz the sun don't shine Nobody ever mentions whoever Can make or break your day Nobody ever seems to remember That life is a game we play We live in the shadows and we had the chance and threw it away And it's never gonna be the same 'Cuz the years have fallen [like the rain??] And it's never gonna be the same So the life I knew ['cuz my mind's obsessed??] Hello There ain't no sense in feeling lonely I've got no faith in you But I've got a feeling you still owe me So wipe the sh*t from your shoes Nobody ever mentions whoever Can make or break your day Nobody ever seems to remember That life is a game we play We live in the shadows and we had the chance and threw it away And it's never gonna be the same 'Cuz the years have fallen [by the way??] And it's never gonna be the same So the life I knew ['cuz my mind's obsessed??] Hello \ Hello |--- 3 times [I'm gonna be heard, I'm gonna be heard??] / Hello Hello Hello (guitar solo)

2: Roll With It

You gotta roll with it You gotta take your time You gotta say what you say Don't let anybody get in your way 'Cuz it's all too much For me to take Don't ever stand aside Don't ever be denied You ought to be who you be If you're coming with me I think I've got a feeling I've lost inside I think I'm gonna take me away and hide I'm thinking things that I just can't abide I know the roads on which your life will drive I find the key that lets you slip inside Kiss the girl she's not behind the door D'you know I think I recognize your face But I've never seen you before You gotta roll with it You gotta take your time You gotta say what you say Don't let anybody get in your way 'Cuz it's all too much For me to take (guitar solo) I know the roads on which your life will drive I find the key that lets you slip inside Kiss the girl she's not behind the door D'you know I think I recognize your face But I've never seen you before You gotta roll with it You gotta take your time You gotta say what you say Don't let anybody get in your way 'Cuz it's all too much For me to take Don't ever stand aside Don't ever be denied You ought to be who you be If you're coming with me I think I've got a feeling I've lost inside <--- 8 times

3: Wonderwall

Today is gonna be the day that they're gonna throw it back to you By now you shoulda somehow realized what you gotta do I don't believe that anybody feels the way I do about you now Back beat, the word is on the street that the fire in your heart is out I'm sure you've heard it all before but you never really had a doubt I don't believe that anybody feels the way I do about you now And all the roads we have to walk are winding And all the lights that lead us there are blinding There are many things that I would like to say to you But I don't know how Because maybe You're gonna be the one that saves me And after all You're my wonderwall Today was gonna be the day but they'll never throw it back to you By now you shoulda somehow realized what you're not to do I don't believe that anybody feels the way I do about you now And all the roads that lead you there were winding And all the lights that light the way are blinding There are many things that I would like to say to you But I don't know how I said maybe You're gonna be the one that saves me And after all You're my wonderwall I said maybe You're gonna be the one that saves me And after all You're my wonderwall I said maybe You're gonna be the one that saves me You're gonna be the one that saves me You're gonna be the one that saves me (Really cool but short guitar solo. You have to love it.)

4: Don't Look Back in Anger

(Sounds kinda like "Imagine all the people" in the beginning. Cool.) Slip inside the eye of your mind Don't you know you might find A better place to play You said that you've never been (sounds like "bean" in order to rhyme w/"seen") But all the things that you've seen They slowly fade away So I'll start a revolution from my bed 'Cuz you said the brains I had went to my head Step outside, summertime's in bloom Stand up beside the fireplace Take that look from off your face You ain't ever gonna burn my heart out And so, Sally can wait She knows it's too late as we're walking on by Her soul slides away But don't look back in anger I heard you say Take me to the place where you go Where nobody knows If it's not our day Please don't put your life in the hands Of a rock and roll band [And? You'll?] throw it all away I'm gonna start a revolution from my bed 'Cuz you said the brains I had went to my head Step outside, 'cuz summertime's in bloom Stand up beside the fireplace Take that look from off your face 'Cuz you ain't ever gonna burn my heart out And so, Sally can wait She knows it's too late as she's walking on by My soul slides away But don't look back in anger I heard you say (guitar solo) So, Sally can wait She knows it's too late as we're walking on by Her soul slides away But don't look back in anger I heard you say So, Sally can wait She knows it's too late as she's walking on by My soul slides away But don't look back in anger Don't look back in anger I heard you say (Another short and really cool guitar solo) At least not today.

5: Hey Now!

I used to ride with my soul by the side of the road Just as the sky turned black I took a walk with my [things? fangs? fame?] down Memory Lane I never did find my way back You know that I've got to say it I'm slipping away And what will it hold for me? What am I gonna do? I'm looking at you You're standing [in awe of??] me I thought that I heard someone say now, "There's no time for running away now." Hey now Hey now Feel no shame 'Cuz time's no chain Feel no shame The first thing I saw as I walked through the door Was a sign on the wall that read It said: "You might never know that I want you to know What's written inside of your head." And time as it stands won't be held in my hands Or living inside of my skin And as you fell from the sky I asked myself why Can I never let anyone in? I thought that I heard someone say now, "There's no time for running away now." Hey now Hey now Feel no shame 'Cuz time's no chain Feel no shame (Your standard, everyday guitar solo) Feel no shame 'Cuz time's no chain Feel no shame I used to ride with my soul by the side of the road Just as the sky turned black I took a walk with my [things? fangs? fame?] down Memory Lane I never did find my way back You know that I've got to say it I'm slipping away And what will it hold for me? What am I gonna do? I'm looking at you You're standing [in awe of??] me I thought that I heard someone say now, "There's no time for running away now." Hey now <--- 10 times Feel no shame 'Cuz time's no chain Feel no shame 'Cuz time's no chain Feel no shame 'Cuz time's no chain Feel no shame

6: The Swamp Song (Version 1)

A short instrumental piece to end Side 1 of the tape.

7: Some Might Say

Some might say That sunshine follows thunder Go and tell it to the man it cannot shine Some might say That we should never ponder on our thoughts today cause they hold sway over time On a [box??] to take our same old sways over time Some might say That we will find a brighter day Some might say We will find a brighter day Yeah-ah! 'Cuz I've been standing at the station In need of education in the rain You made no preparation For my reputation once again Your sink is full of fishes She's got dirty dishes on the brain And it was overflowing gently But it's all elementary my friend (cool guitar solo) Some might say They don't believe in heaven Go and tell to the man who lives in hell Some might say You get what you've been given If you don't get yours in one get mine as well 'Cuz some might say We will find a brighter day Some might say We will find a brighter day (in a year) Yeah-ah 'Cuz I've been standing at the station In need of education in the rain You made no preparation For my reputation once again Your sink is full of fishes She's got dirty dishes on the brain My dog's been itching Itching in the kitchen once again Some might say (some might say) <-- Twice You know what some might say (you know what some might say) <-- 8 times Woo!

8: Cast No Shadow

Here's a thought for every man who tries to understand What is in his hands (what's in his hands) He walks along the open road of love and life To find it if he can (to find it if he can) Bound with all the weight of all the words he tried to say Chained to all the places that he never wished to stay Bound with all the weight of all the words he tried to say As he faced the sun he cast no shadow (Haaaaaaaa-ah) As they took his soul they stole his pride (priiiii-hide) <-- 3 times As he faced the sun he cast no shadow (Haaaaaaaa-ah) (Haaaaaaaa-ah) (Haaaaaaaa-ah) Here's a thought for every man who tries to understand What is in his hands (what's in his hands) He walks along the open road of love and life To find it if he can (but only if he can) Bound with all the weight of all the words he tried to say Chained to all the places that he never wished to stay Bound with all the weight of all the words he tried to say As he faced the sun he cast no shadow (Haaaaaaaa-ah) As they took his soul they stole his pride (priiiii-hide) <-- 4 times As he faced the sun he cast no shadow As he faced the sun he cast no shadow (Haaaaaaa-ah) <-- 2 times As he faced the sun he cast no shadow

9: She's Electric

She's electric She's in a family full of eccentrics She's done things I've never expected And I need more time She's got a sister And God only knows how I've missed her And on the palm of her hand is a blister And I need more time And I want you to know I've got my mind {made up now/mind made up now} But I need more time And I want you to say Do you know what {I'm saying/what I'm saying} But I need more {'Cuz I'll be you and you'll be me/tiiiiii-iiime} {There's lots and lots for us to see/ahhhhh-ahhhhh} {Lots and lots for us to do/ahhhhh-ahhhhh} {She is electric/ahhhhh} {Can I be electric too?/ahhhhh} (A real "feel good" bouncy guitar solo) She's got a brother (a brother) We don't get on with one another But I quite fancy her mother And I think that she likes me She's got a cousin (a cousin) In fact she's got a dozen (a dozen) She's got one in the oven (oven) But it's nothing to do with me And I want you to know I've got my mind {made up now/mind made up now} But I need more time And I want you to say Do you know what {I'm saying/what I'm saying} But I need more {'Cuz I'll be you and you'll be me/tiiiiii-iiime} {There's lots and lots for us to see/ahhhhh-ahhhhh} {There's lots and lots for us to do/ahhhhh-ahhhhh} {She is electric/ahhhhh} {Can I be electric too?/ahhhhh} Can I be electric too? <-- 3 times Haaa-ahhh-ahhh-ahhh-ahhh-ahhh-ahhh-ahhh-ahhh!

10: Morning Glory

(song begins with helicopter sound FX) (radio conversation between a man and a woman mumbled in the background but I can't understand what they're saying) (FX and radio fade out to background music, then the lyrics begin) All your dreams are made When you're chained to the mirror and the razor blade Today's the day that all the world will see Another sunny afternoon Walking to the sound of my favorite tune Tomorrow never knows what it doesn't know too soon Need a little time to wake up Need a little time to wake up wake up Need a little time to wake up Need a little time to rest your mind You know you should so I guess you might as well What's the story morning glory? Well You need a little time to wake up wake up Well What's the story morning glory? Well Need a little time to wake up wake up (guitar solo) All your dreams are made When you're chained to the mirror and the razor blade Today's the day that all the world will see Another sunny afternoon Walking to the sound of my favorite tune Tomorrow never knows what it doesn't know too soon Need a little time to wake up Need a little time to wake up wake up Need a little time to wake up Need a little time to rest your mind You know you should so I guess you might as well What's the story morning glory? Well Need a little time to wake up wake up Well What's the story morning glory? Well You need a little time to wake up wake up Well What's the story morning glory? Well Need a little time to wake up wake up Well What's the story morning glory? (I said) well Need a little time to wake up wake up (yet another guitar solo) (back to helicopter sound FX) (more mumbled radio conversation, then song ends)

11: The Swamp Song (Version 2)

Yes, you guessed it, a second short instrumental piece. This one makes the transition between Morning Glory and Champagne Supernova. (no space between the three songs - one blends into the next.)

12: Champagne Supernova

How many special people change? How many lives are living strange? Where were you while we were getting high? Slowly walking down the hall Faster than a cannonball Where were you while we were getting high? Someday you will find me Caught beneath the landslide In a champagne supernova in the sky Someday you will find me Caught beneath the landslide In a champagne supernova A champagne supernova in the sky Wake up the dawn and ask her why I dream a dream she never dies Wipe that tear away now from your eye Slowly walking down the hall Faster than a cannonball Where were you while we were getting high? Someday you will find me Caught beneath the landslide In a champagne supernova in the sky Someday you will find me Caught beneath the landslide In a champagne supernova A champagne supernova 'Cuz we don't believe That they're gonna get away from the summer But you and I will never die The world's still spinning around we don't know why Why-why-why-why-i-i (guitar solo) How many special people change? How many lives are living strange? Where were you while we were getting high? Slowly walking down the hall Faster than a cannonball Where were you while we were getting high? Someday you will find me Caught beneath the landslide In a champagne supernova in the sky Someday you will find me Caught beneath the landslide In a champagne supernova A champagne supernova 'Cuz we don't believe That they're gonna get away from the summer But you and I will never die The world's still spinning around we don't know why Why-why-why-why-i-i (a really long guitar solo) (background - sounds like a bunch of "No"'s) (birds chirping) (more guitar) How many special people change? How many lives are living strange? Where were you while we were getting high? We were getting high <-- 9 times, background "Oooh-oooh" (Fades out 7th-9th times to just one "Oooh-oooh") (Song gets really quiet, fades to a peaceful guitar solo.) (You gotta love it.) (Slow drum cadence behind a long held note with a peaceful pitch.) (Last guitar solo behind the long note.) (Album ends with that long note. Wow.)
