Complete Lyrics for "Candy Tears" (c) Pete Galub, 2013


Reacquaintance

She went to a party
To see if her heartbeat
Was still intact

I drank an ocean
Until I saw bottom
Remembered the good times
Until I forgot ‘em.

Yeah!

So glad to make your reacquaintance
Hello!

For 500 midnights, I wore your clothes
Referring to people
Nobody knows
Their green eyes grasping
For some kind of feeling
Like amputee spiders
Stuck on the ceiling

Grasp!

So glad to make your reacquaintance
Hello!
I have to go, my ride is waiting.
Alone…



Crying Time

Now I lay me down to weep
Against the velvet of the long goodbye
And I know the joke's on me
So this is what he meant by crying time

Shut the windows and the blinds
Right now I know it's time

This is crying time
Start the whole world over and
Bloodlet in all the sunshine ‘til we're high
We're in short supply
Maybe I'll be with you till the end of someone's weekend
But tonight it's crying time

You can call them candy tears
And try to taste the sugar in the salt
Feel the rain fall on deaf ears
And try to tell me this is someone's fault.

Shut the windows and the blinds
Right now I know it's time

This is crying time
Start the whole world over and
Bloodlet in all the sunshine ‘til we're high
We're in short supply
Maybe I'll be with you at the end of someone's weekend
But tonight it's crying time



All I Am

You
Never make up your mind
But you
Have clearly made a decision
And I’m the next in line
In this esteemed tradition

And I’m not all I am, I’m not all I am

Why don’t you tear me a line
You know you’ve got my permission
Thoughts that have grown in my mind
Have clouded my conviction

And I’m not all I am, I’m not all I am



300 Days In July

300 days in the month of July
So many drugs in the water supply
Sandcastles crumbling right through my hand
I reinvent myself

In the California sunshine
Watching as the waves
Die

Paleontologists dig in (diggin') the beach
Trying to find something that they'll never reach
Maybe a portal to some space or time
Times like the ones that we had

In the California sunshine
Walkin' on the water
Those were days when we just let it all
Slide… slide.

Now we are older now we are not sure
If it was water or if it was war
That changed the faces on all of your favorite rocks
God knows I love you so

In the California sunshine
Walkin' on the water
Watchin’ all your problems float away
With the tide... with the tide… with the tide…



Feels All Over

At certain angles
The light plays favorably
The world untangles
And you speak straight to me

Sunshine without sunlight is you
Sunshine without sunlight is you

Feels all over
Feels all over

My hand, my heart, my legs, my body, my brain, my will, my luck, my instincts all

Feels all over



My Regeneration

I kiss your lips
Yeah, kiss your lips
That made my heart grow back again
I felt your charms
Now I got arms
To hold you in the night

Like sharky tooth, like lizard tail
Like Jesus Christ after the nail

It's alive! It's alive!

And love
Is not
An answer
It is
A force
Of nature

I'm yours and maybe you are mine
Until the end of borrowed time

It's alive!
It's alive!
It's alive and it's my regeneration!
It's alive and it's my regeneration!



"Plead the 5th Dimension"

I Plead the 5th Dimension
Is there any other explanation?
Secede from civilized union
I founded my own state of confusion

Who doctored my eye prescriptions?
Who went and jimmied all of my satellite transmissions?
Abducted the city I live in
And donated us to science fiction

Asleep at full attention
We plead the 5th Dimension

Who put the memories in my head before they hatched
All their crazy schemes that made me so detached?
Who spilled the blood babe on the trading killing floor
And made me realize what I wasn't fighting for?

Cause I love you but they say we're just collateral
And I want you but they say we're just expendable
And I love you but they say we're just collateral
And I love you but they say we're just collateral
And I love you but they say we're just collateral
And I love you but they say...
I plead


"Waiting"

Waiting, still waiting
Like a dog, like a human
I was told there's a future in waiting
For a comet, or a prophet, or a train that never comes
I'm here, I am ready and I am waiting

In a town
In a square
In a time
That's neither here nor there

Breathe
Keep breathing
Like a fish, like a human
‘Till your lungs turn to gills
You gotta keep breathing

Hope
Keep hoping
Like a schmuck, like a human
All we're doing is hoping

In a town
In a square
In a time
That's neither here nor there

Like a dog
Like a dog
Like a dog


"Boat"

I got a boat
But I don't wanna go anywhere
I got a boat
But I don't wanna go anywhere
Fame and renown await for me on the other side of the shore

But I don't wanna dirty up my oar
Sweepin' the ocean floor
Takin' lovers from the friends who came before
I got a boat
But I don't want to go anywhere

I got a heart
But I don't wanna beat it no more
I got a heart
But I don't wanna beat it no more
I found my one true love and I don't wanna see her again
I float myself away, away to the riverbed

Cause I don't wanna dirty up my oar
Sweepin’ the ocean floor
Takin' lovers from the friends who came before
I got a boat
But I don't want to go anywhere

But I'm dressed for the occasion
I don't wanna go anywhere
Yeah I'm dressed for the occasion
But I don't wanna go anywhere

Pete Galub New York, New York

Galub has been called “the lyric-prince of dry wit” by the Village Voice. Time Out NY wrote: “Galub’s songs echo familiar country and power-pop models without sounding too indebted to a single source, and each makes room for small melodic and structural surprises.” Look for Pete’s music in Hal Hartley’s film “Meanwhile.” ... more
