Angus Stone Apprentice Of The Rocket Man

She’s the apprentice of the rocket man

It came to him in a dream

She’s the apprentice of the rocket man

Cook and clean

Late at night

All drunk up in the street

Conversations with that blue moon

One day my love we meet

She’s the apprentice of the rocket man

It came to him in a dream

She’s the apprentice of the rocket man

Cook and clean

Some say he’s a mad man

Who fell to his own defeat

Some say he’s got no one

But the moon at his feet

She’s the apprentice of the rocket man

It came to him in a dream

She’s the apprentice of the rocket man

Cook and clean

Angus Stone Napoleon’s Dream

As I lent against a tree and struck a match to my pipe

The hushed voice of the pines lent me a secret that night

With all the colors of the sea and the stars in your eyes

Which trail you will choose will be only for you to decide

For when the giants in your heart grow weary and fall weak

Never forget it is you and not fear who will speak

As the whisper fell to gold through the wind to my heart

The earth began to fold, the forest began to part

As the wishbones from the clouds fell from the needles of the pines

A hand from the shadow pulled me back to travel through time

Where the sounds of the ocean combed through and out my thoughts

It was inside Napoleon’s dream tonight I would walk

As the hand let go I fell through the pines and hit the forest floor

Where at the foot of the giant creaked open an old twisted wooden door

As I stepped inside aboard my crystal voyage had winched its sails

For now the world began to sink as the silked clouds became her veil

As the windows of the stars drew the keys for the map

I caught myself looked down thinking I’ll never look back

As we took to the moon my heart took all of what it could fill

For the treasures of my soul reached out and held me still

Shook on the shoulder I woke from this dream

Napoleon looked down and asked where I had been

I looked at him square straight dead in the eye

Said I think I was in the place I will go when I die

Angus Stone Monsters

Billy was a train driving man

He went from one side to the other side of town

He went to bed with the light on

He went to bed with the light on

Ride on

He found his struggle with the wind

Something he never came to understand

He felt lost in the dark

Even when there was someone, he felt apart

Alone

Alone

Alone

Cause in the dark

There’s monsters, they cry alone

They’re waiting

For you to come along and play

For you to come along and play

He made his way to the liquor store

Couldn’t help but notice the man at the door

Yeah he did, he caught his eye

He said “sir, please a nickel, before I die.”

Alone

Alone

Alone

Cause in the dark

There’s monsters, they cry alone

They’re waiting

For you to come along and play

For you to come along and play

And play

For you to come along and play

And play

Cause in the dark

There’s monsters, they cry alone

They’re waiting

For you to come along and play

Cause were monsters at heart

At heart, at heart

There’s monsters in their hearts

Their hearts

For you to come along and play

And play

For you to come along

And play

Angus Stone Broken Brights

Is that the old man walking in the dark

Take me home where them broken brights

Are shinning down, make me feel alright

When we were young

When we were young

Is that the old man walking in the dark

Is that the old man walking in the dark

Shake them bones let me lost tonight

We’ll grow young make me feel alright

When we were young

When we were young

Is that the old man walking in the dark

Angus Stone Bird On The Buffalo

So convince the others of the change in the wind

The watchtower man turned and whispered me some things

He said we don’t sleep stuck in the dream

Shot my baby with an arrow in the wing

Wounded cut bent and scarred we got together

Lost in love in your broke down car

Through stormy weather

Like the bird on the buffalo

Like the bird on the buffalo

So convince the others of the change in the wind

The lighthouse man turned and whispered me some things

We don’t sleep awake in the dream

Shot my baby with an arrow in the wing

Us you me and them we got together

We got together and we did our thing

Through stormy weather

Like the bird on the buffalo

Like the bird on the buffalo

Angus Stone Only A Woman

Only a woman, only a girl

Only a woman, she ain’t that kind of girl

Well, you walked in early

You walked in real late

You lit a smoke and you talked about

How change to stone had a broken gate

Takes me back to that first time

I reached for words that just weren’t there

Our lips touch, came the moon shine

Upon our skin so bare, upon our skin so bare

Only a woman, only a girl, only a woman

She ain’t that kind of girl, she ain’t that kind of girl

Takes me back to them old days

It’s funny how times they come so clear

And your hair, well it glows in that sweet rain

I held you so dear and I held you so dear

Only a woman, only a girl, only a woman

She ain’t that kind of girl, she ain’t that kind of girl

Only a woman, only a girl, only a woman

She ain’t that kind of girl, she ain’t that kind of girl

Angus Stone The Wolf And The Butler

Mr wolf, the feast has been served

This fancy wine with our days

Mr wolf, the guest has seem to arrived

The deer is drunk and is dancing with your wife

He stumbles down the stairs

All the creatures of the night stand up and cheer

He raises up his glass to make a toast,

He says “this one goes out to the one I love the most”

Make her smile, boy

Don’t ever look away

Cause she’ll be the ocean on your darkest of days

Make her smile, boy

In every which damn way

Don’t be like your old man

Who gets stuck in your ways

Make her smile

Make her smile

The river band begins to play

As we all washed our blues away

And love is dead love till they were stoned

And those damn fools couldn’t find their way home

Make her smile, boy

Don’t ever look away

Cause she’ll be the ocean on your darkest of days

Make her smile, boy

In every which damn way

Don’t be like your old man

Who gets stuck in your ways

Make her smile

Make her smile
