Lyrics from Men From When's

                     About Time

                       (Side 2)

Queen of The Sun

I see you dressed in your regal gown, adoring subjects all around

Your lovely handmaids by your side, you climb the throne in the gleaming bright

You're my little omnipotent one, you're a little vainglorious, hon

Your Queen of the Sun

I see you with the knight so brave, and to your right, a gentle knave

The daylight streaming from your eyes, the flames are flying through the sky

You're my little omnipotent one, you're a bit of vainglorious fun

Your Queen of the Sun

Queen of the Sun (8X)

As you rise to take your throne, the crown of fire in the stone

Reflects my cap of jester's green, you turn to me a face serene

You're my little omnipotent one, you're a little vainglorious, hon

Your Queen of the Sun

Queen of the Sun (16x)

You're sundial shade betrays the time

Under your eyes a little line

The angle on your golden hair

The solar markings are all there

Let them eat cake, your Queen of the Sun

Silvertone Transistor Radio

It's the summer of '65 and I've got somewhere to go

Walking past the burning bush with my music box in tow

Got my Silvertone transistor radio, everything's in there I used to know

The girls are singing in the street "Stop In The Name of Love"

The boys are playing two hand touch, the sky is blue above

In my Silvertone transistor radio, everything's in there I used to know

Somewhere it's a 5 o'clock world, I know a place where Plymouth Valiants unfurl

My brother's entertaining friends, my dad is laughing long

I have to turn the volume up so I can hear my song

It had a silver speaker, silver dial with knobs of gold

It still sits inside a drawer tucked away from days of old

The boys are playing two hand touch, the sky is blue above

The girls are singing in the street "Stop In the Name of Love"

Somewhere it's a 5 o'clock world, I know a place where Plymouth Valiants unfurl 2x

Somewhere/I know/Ford Falcons unfurl

The turmoil days of happiness 

The turquoise days of innocence

Somewhere

Downtown

Why do you always have to go downtown?

What is it that's got a hold on you?

Why are you always busy running around?

How come you never get where you're going to?

 

I hear you know some people like to stay out all night long

Fill their ears with music played too loud to hear the song

Like to wallow in the decadence, and crawl across the street

Stay so slim and beautiful don't need to sleep or eat

 

Why do you always have to go downtown?.....

 

I hear you know some people, they got holes in their holes

So nothing matters anymore, they're numb from nose to toes

From fingertip to forehead there's no feeling there

Pretend it's all excitement, pretend that water's air

 

Why do you always have to go downtown?....

 

I hear you know some people deep behind your sunken eyes

Kindess is all out of place inside your house of lies

No good deed goes unpunished, no hurtful act unsung

From the comfort of your darkness you can't abide the sun


 

Why do you always have to go downtown?...

 

Why do you always have to go downtown?

The Things You Said That Day

You were alive, you had it made, your thoughts were known by millions

The things you said that day

World in your hands, you through it away, you stuck to what you believed in

The things you said that day

Just when the tears have gone, they come again

It's been so many years, but I still remember when

You were alive, you had it made, you stuck to what you believed in

The things you said that day

Cried many years before, and I still hurt today

Did not know me at all, but I still feel this way

You are alive, you're here today

Your thoughts are known by millions

The things you said that day

The things you said that day

The things you said that day

Kissed

You don't want to be kissed, you only want to be held like this (2x)

I'm just a man I got to have my fun, you go out and hide and never see the sun

Hanging in a club where the music is loud, dulls your senses and tires you out

You don't want to be kissed, you only want to be held like this

I can be easy, I can take my time, go for the moment when it feels just right

But I can't wait till I grow old, I didn't think that you could be that cold

You don't want to be kissed, you only want to be held like this (2X)

Were you molested as a kid?

Is it something that I did?

Is it something that I said?

Why's it freezing in your bed?

You don't want to be kissed, you only want to be held like this

Hanging around with the people that you know, freaks and geeks like a circus show

You're always ready to be abused, but you turn your back on me and refuse

You don't want to be kissed, you only want to be held like this (2x)

The Sweet Marie

T'was a sunny day

Far far away

We went up feeling free

Saw her in the clear


In the wind swept hills

The Sweet Marie

It was a wondrous crystal morning

That should have lasted a lifetime

Through the sparkling sun

Laughing on the run

We went up to the sky

The day became the night

No fear no fright

We could never cry

It was a wondrous crystal morning

That should have lasted a lifetime

Somewhere near the clouds

She finally ran aground

And hit a rainbow iceberg

She sank in the air

Pot of gold flung everywhere

But it was a wondrous crystal morning

That should have lasted a lifetime

Now if you're young


And you look up in the sun

To where your eyes should never be

You might see a light from a distant height

The Sweet Marie

Yes up in the sky are those things that cannot die

And those things that cannot be

Up in the air beyond our hopes and our fears

Flies the Sweet Marie

The Sweet Marie
