Kara’s Flowers Soap Disco

The crowd was getting old

The disco’s back or so I’m told

But we’ve got nothing here

Except a tired set of ears and we say

Hey mama, I’m something

Check it out, see what it’s all about

Cos this is soap disco, so charming

See the floor from a cleaner point of view

The children had the time

To overthrow the slime

The superchildren said they could see

Bright lights and clean colors

Check it out, see what it’s all about

Cos this is soap disco, so charming

See the floor from a cleaner point of view

Bright lights and clean colors

Check it out, see what it’s all about

Cos this is soap disco, so charming

See the floor from a cleaner point of view

Hey mama, I’m something

Check it out, see what it’s all about

Cos this is soap disco, so charming

See the floor from a cleaner point of view

Kara’s Flowers Sleepy Windbreaker

We fill the day with careless displays

Going sailing with nothing to say

When I fell

We could tell

Now you’re torn apart

The sun’s driving fast

Taking photographs

It’s morning at last

And the sailors are taking a stand

With their heads buried deep in the sand

Feeling well

Life is swell

When I fell

We could tell

Hooray

When I fell

We could tell

Feeling well

Life is swell

Kara’s Flowers That’s Not Enough

She was a bad thing coming,

But I did not know.

And everytime I came over she told me I had to go.

I said “Hey, what’s going on? I really want to know.”

She said “I cannot tell you now, but I’ll call you tomorrow.”

That’s not enough.

I want more.

I want it all.

I want to bang on your front door.

Turn off the lights

And shut out the world.

Cause at the end of the day,

Aren’t we all just boys and girls?

Yeah

She’s snake me with sophisication,

So much class.

She drinks a Santa margarita,

Would you like a glass?

I don’t know how to say no

And after three or four,

I was on the floor,

Singing my song,

La la la

No no.

That’s not enough.

I want more.

I want it all.

I want to bang on your front door.

Turn off the lights

And shut out the world.

Cause at the end of the day,

Aren’t we all just boys and girls?

Yeah…

La la la.

No no.

That’s not enough.

I want more.

I want it all.

I want to bang on your front door.

Turn off the lights

And shut out the world.

Cause at the end of the day,

Aren’t we all just boys and girls?

Aren’t we all just boys and girls?

Aren’t we all just boys and girls? (all just boys and girls)

Oh yeah. Oh

Aren’t we all just boys and girls?

Aren’t we all just boys and girls?

Yeah… oh.

Kara’s Flowers Simple Kind Of Lovely

Leaning on a tree trunk

Thinking all the same junk

Falling in and out of a dream

Back and forth I’m swaying

I’m contemplating staying

Laying and decaying

When I know I must leave

Where do I aim when I shoot the breeze?

How do I calm myself at times like these?

I need a simple kind of lovely

And the thought is just a novelty

You can spend the whole time

Dangling from a grape vine

Standing underneath you

When they cut you free

What about when the sun leaves?

And what about all those bad dreams?

Who will walk you back into reality?

I wish things could be like this everyday

But I know that I could never live this way

It was just a simple kind of lovely

And the memories will be okay

The memories will be okay

Memories will be okay

I wish things could be like this everyday

But I know that I could never live this way

It was just a simple kind of lovely

And the memories will be okay

It was just a simple kind of lovely

And the memories will be okay

The memories will be okay [x2]

Kara’s Flowers Captain Splendid

Nobody cares

bout ocean affairs

He’s by himself ’cause nobody loves him

Cleaning his sand

Filled boots with his hand

Looking for something but nothing sees him

Happy was he

in spite of his knee

That wasn’t there because of his day job

There was a man

who took to the band

paying attention tried to adhere him

And he ran

And he shot

But his rivals were sharp

And the kids

in the sand

struggled finding a plan

Seemingly fine

he sipped on his wine

Terror was healthy but not on a mission

There was a sea

A mystical tease

Our cannons were shot

’til we couldn’t afford them

Others would have died alone

Angels all worked free

Timeless fairs and sing-alongs

Speaking naturally

And he ran

And he shot

But his rivals were sharp

And the kids

in the sand

struggled deep hand in hand

All the way

from the bay

We can hear them say

All the time

we were dead

And I’m Cap’ Splendid

And he ran

And he shot

But his rivals were sharp

And the kids

in the sand

struggled deep hand in hand

All the way

from the bay

I could hear them say

I don’t care

if we’re dead

I am Captain Splendid

Kara’s Flowers Oliver

You know that I was overblown by all the card sharks

And the muggers that day

And there were several million lovers

of that dress that’s in the window display

And every day they’d say

Oliver

Oliver

Oliver

Oliver don’t stay

She was quite a woman

Kind and understanding woman she was

Oh yeah

Sure I really loved her

But she acted like a mother to me

And she loved me and I’d scream

Nancy

Nancy

Nancy

Please take care of me

Oliver, Oliver

Oliver, Oliver

Oliver

Aaaaahhhhhhhhhhh

I was overblown by all the card sharks

And the muggers that day

Several million lovers

of that dress that’s in the window display

And every day they’d say

Oliver

Oliver

Oliver

Oliver don’t stay

Kara’s Flowers The Fog

Here in this town they have all got the blues

As the paperboy takes off without any news

Angels have wings you can feel free to use

The corner store drugs you can freely abuse

And I’m yelling and screaming cause

Baby you’re driving me crazy

So life on your own has been vacant and cold

Everyone’s getting somewhere and you’re getting old

Career opportunities, they all have been sold

Along with your body, and most of your soul

And I’m yelling and screaming cause

Baby you’re driving me crazy

If I could spare more remorse

From my emptied out pores

I would maybe

Cause the fog’s getting thicker

And the world’s spinning fast

The chaos is building

It’s going to last

And it’s so hard to see

And you’re so hard to find

They’re days when I think I am losing my mind

So keep painting pictures of beautiful scenes

Striking the canvas with deep blues and greens

Realists are frowning, they think you’re obscene

As you work overtime to make sure they can dream

And I’m yelling and screaming cause

Baby you’re driving me crazy

If I could spare more remorse

From my emptied out pores

I would maybe

Cause the fog’s getting thicker

And the world’s spinning fast

The chaos is building

It’s going to last

And it’s so hard to see

And you’re so hard to find

They’re days when I think I am losing my mind

And we yell

And we scream

As the fog’s getting thicker

the world’s spinning fast

The chaos is building

It’s going to last

And it’s so hard to see

And you’re so hard to find

They’re days when I think I am losing my mind

And the fog’s getting thicker

the world’s spinning fast

The chaos is building

It’s going to last

And it’s so hard to see

And you’re so hard to find

There’s days when I think I am losing my mind

Kara’s Flowers Good At Being Gone

I’ve taken time

to think about the words I’ve said and what they mean

and I’ve realized that having you is just like having everything

But when I see you dancing there

I get up and throw my hands in the air

when I’ve nowhere else to roam

I slowly start to think about coming home

It’s been so long

it seems the only things I know are far from home

where did I go

it seems sometimes I’m only good at being gone

But when I see you dancing there

I get up and throw my hands in the air

when I’ve nowhere else to roam

I slowly start to think about coming home

But when I see you standing there

I get up and throw my hands in the air

when I’ve nowhere else to roam

I slowly start to think about coming home

When I’ve nowhere else to roam

I slowly start to think about coming home

home, home

When I’ve nowhere else to roam

I slowly start to think about coming home

Kara’s Flowers My Ocean Blue

I once heard Captain Dan tell me a story

about this lovely girl who’s name was Jane

She was vast and deep and filled with glory

Aaaahhhh

Bottom served as home for hull and anchor

She’s always fit to quarrel with the wind

The great Titanic yes it’s she that sank her

Aaaahhhh

Then she heard me

Say that oath that

made everything clear

I love you

My ocean blue

I like the way your sea sees me

My darling Jane

She speaks to me at times through falling rain

Now twas time to manifest her vigor

Was she fit to quarrel with the wind?

The air was strong but Jane she was much bigger

Aaaaahhhh

Then she heard me

say that oath that

made everything clear

I love you

My ocean blue

I like the way your sea sees me

My darling Jane

Oh me, my darling Jane

Oh me and my darling Jane

She speaks to me at times through falling rain

Speaks to me at times through falling rain
