Rufus Wainwright Come Rain Or Come Shine

I’m gonna love you, like nobody’s loved you

Come rain or come shine

High as a mountain, deep as a river

Come rain or come shine

I guess when you met me, it was just one of those things

But don’t ever bet me, ’cause I’m gonna be true if you let me

You’re gonna love me, like nobody’s loved me

Come rain or come shine

Happy together, unhappy together

Won’t that be fine?

Days may be cloudy or sunny, we’re in or we’re out of the money

I’m with you always, I’m with you rain or shine

Gonna love you, I’m gonna love you

I’m gonna love you, come rain or come shine

High as a mountain and deep as a river

Come rain or come shine

I’m gonna love you, I’m gonna love you

I’m gonna love you!

I guess when you met me, it was just one of those things

But don’t ever bet me, ’cause I’m gonna be true

Gonna be true if you let me

Let me, let me

Let me, let me

Let me love you

Let me love you

Come rain or come shine

Happy together, unhappy together

Won’t that be fine?

Days may be cloudy or sunny

We’re in or we’re out of the money

I’m with you baby, I’m with you baby

I’m with you always, come rain or shine!

Rufus Wainwright Beautiful Child

When I am older than these small goddamned hills

And there’s no reason for my mind to be still

Oh, how I’ll feel like a beautiful child again

Such a beautiful child again

Such a beautiful child

Such a beautiful child again

When I have finally found my room filled with toys

Be banging on my crib excited by noise

Oh, how I’ll feel

Oh, how I’ll feel

Oh, how I’ll feel like a beautiful child

Such a beautiful child again

Such a beautiful child

Such a beautiful child again

And when there’s nothing to gain

Or bring me pain

Or pin the blame

On you or myself

And when they finally fall

These wailing walls

And burning crosses

God’s twilight and all

Oh how I’ll feel

Oh how I’ll feel

Oh how I’ll feel like a beautiful child

Such a beautiful child again

A beautiful child

Such a beautiful child again

Such a beautiful child

Such a beautiful child again

When I am older than these small goddamned hills

Rufus Wainwright Natasha

You walk alone in the valley of life

In the shadow of love under the trees of happiness

You walk alone like a baby unborn

Like a father unknown

Like a pocket penniless

I’m happy that you really care

But do you really know

How scary

This is for you and is for me?

Oh do you you really know?

Do you really know? oh..

Natasha

All I can do

Is write a song for you

Natasha

Oh Natasha

For you I sit alone on the cozy ground floor

On a bench by the garden

Waiting also

Waiting for love and thinking of all of the

Catty remarks I also swallow

And as I’ve often asked before

Does anybody know

How scary

This is for you and is for me?

Does anybody know?

Anybody know? oh…

Natasha

All I can do

Is write a song for you

Natasha

Oh Natasha

All I can do

Is write a song for you

Rufus Wainwright I Can’t Give You Anything But Love

Now that it’s your birthday, I don’t know what to do

Can’t get you a Thunderbird or a penthouse with a view

Can’t even buy a little present

I’m much too broke, I find

But there is one way I can save the day

And I sure hope you don’t mind, that…

I can’t give you anything but love, baby

That’s the only thing I’ve plenty of, baby

Dream a while, scheme a while

You’re sure to find happiness

And I guess all the things you’ve always pined for

Gee, I like to see you looking swell, baby

Diamond bracelets Woolworth doesn’t sell, baby

‘Til that lucky day, you know darn well, baby

I can’t give you anything but love

Gee, I like to see you looking swell, baby

Diamond bracelets Woolworth doesn’t sell, baby

‘Til that lucky day, you know darn well, baby

I can’t give you anything, I can’t give you anything

I can’t give you anything but love

Rufus Wainwright Farewell

Farewell! thou art too dear for my possessing,

And like enough thou know’st thy estimate,

The charter of thy worth gives thee releasing;

My bonds in thee are all determinate.

For how do I hold thee but by thy granting?

And for that riches where is my deserving?

The cause of this fair gift in me is wanting,

And so my patent back again is swerving.

Thy self thou gavest, thy own worth then not knowing,

Or me to whom thou gav’st it else mistaking;

So thy great gift, upon misprision growing,

Comes home again, on better judgement making.

Thus have I had thee, as a dream doth flatter,

In sleep a king, but waking no… waking no such matter.

Waking no such matter.

Rufus Wainwright Montauk

One day you will come to Montauk and see your dad wearing a

kimono and see your other dad pruning roses

Hope you wont turn around and go

One day you will come to Montauk and see your dad playing the piano

and see your other dad wearing glasses

Hope that you will want to stay for a while

Don’t worry I know you’ll have to go

One day you will come to Montauk and see your dad trying to be funny

and see your other dad seeing through me

Hope that you will protect your dad

One day you will come to Montauk and see your dad trying to be evil

and see your other dad feeling lonely

Hope that you will protect him, and stay

Don’t worry I know you’ll have to go

One day years ago in Montauk lived a woman now a shadow

There she does wait for us in the ocean

And although we want to stay for a while

Don’t worry we all have to go

One day you will come to Montauk

Rufus Wainwright Me And Liza

Me and Liza Liza and I

Famous ’till the day that we die

Mamma made it so I’ve to try

Me and Liza Liza and I

Daddy writing unanswered love letters why

Come on Liza give me a try

Blowing on the embers of fame

Burning down the house of your name

Everything can go up in flames

As long as you have something to frame

Energizer baby’s on fire

No one’s gonna hatchet you down

Terminator thief of desire

No one’s gettin’ out of this town

Fucking up the embers of fame

Burning down the house of your name

Everything can go up in flames

As long as you have something to frame

Me and Liza Liza and I

Happy that we’re now such good friends

Looking forward forward to seeing you

Love like as we can not be ten

Chocking on the embers of fame

Burning down the house of your name

Everything can go up in flames

As long as you have something to frame

Me and Liza Liza and I

Me and Liza Liza and I

Me and Liza Liza and I

Me and Liza Liza and I

Rufus Wainwright I’m Not Ready To Love

I’m not ready to love, I’m not ready for peace

I’m givin’ up the dove to the beast

I’m not ready to surrender to another glove murderer

I’m not ready to love, I’m not ready to to fly

I’m givin’ up belief in the sky

So you can take my sin in up above on high, say goodbye

I’m not ready to love, I’m not ready to love

I’m not ready to love until I’m ready to love you the way you should be loved

Until I’m ready to hold you the way you should be held

You should be held, but I’m not ready to

Rufus Wainwright Nobody’s Off The Hook

Haven’t fallen down in a while

Sitting here walking the line

Well that’s ok, I ain’t no book

‘Cause nobody’s off the hook

See you looking so sad

Trying to live your life in style

Well that’s ok, you ain’t no crook

‘Cause nobody’s off the hook

I remember you when, looking like a teenager

How you have become a man with all the power

Running the moon aground

Who would ever have thought, hanging with a homo and hairdresser

You would become the one desired in every woman’s heart

But you never will lose, your heart with those little boys

Haven’t fallen down in a while, sitting here walking the line

Well that’s ok, ’cause I have looked

And nobody’s off the hook

‘Cause life will take that little heart, and bring you to your knees

Threatening to break it for the final time

And you’ll believe it, yes, you will believe it

But look, nobody’s off the hook

Rufus Wainwright A Foggy Day

I was a stranger in the city

Out of town were the people I knew

I had that feeling of self-pity

What to do? What to do? What to do?

The outlook was decidedly blue

But as I walked through the foggy streets alone

It turned out to be the luckiest day I’ve known

A foggy day in London Town

Had me low, had me down

I viewed the morning with alarm

The British Museum had lost its charm

How long, I wondered, could this thing last?

But the age of miracles hadn’t passed

For suddenly I saw you there

And through foggy London Town

The sun was shining everywhere
