RULES AND REGULATIONS
(RUFUS WAINWRIGHT)

I will never be as cute as you,
according to the board of human relations
I will never fly as high as you,
according to the board of public citations

These are just the rules and regulations
Of the birds, and the bees
The earth, and the trees,
Not to mention the gods, not to mention the gods

All my little life I’ve wanted to roam
Even if it was just inside my own home
Then one little day I chanced to look back
Saw you sittin’ there, being a sad culprit

These are just the rules and regulations
Of the birds, and the bees
The earth, and the trees,
Not to mention the gods, not to mention the gods

These are just the rules and regulations
Yeah, these are just the rules and regulations
And I like every one, yes I like every one.

GOING TO A TOWN
(RUFUS WAINWRIGHT)

I’m going to a town that has already been burned down
I’m going to a place that is already been disgraced
I’m gonna see some folks who have already been let down
I’m so tired of America

I’m gonna make it up for all of the Sunday times
I’m gonna make it up for all of the nursery rhymes
They never really seem to want to tell the truth
I’m so tired of you, America

Making my own way home
Ain´t gonna be alone
I got a life to lead, America
I got a life to lead

Tell me, do you really think you go to hell for having loved?
Tell me, and not for thinking everything that you ve done is good
I really need to know, after soaking the body of Jesus Christ in blood
I’m so tired of America, I really need to know

I may just never see you again or might as well
You took advantage of a world that loved you well
I’m going to a town that has already been burned down
I’m so tired of you, America

Making my own way home
Ain´t gonna be alone
I got a life to lead, America

I got a life to lead
I got a soul to feed
I got a dream to heed
And that’s all I need

Making my own way home
Ain´t gonna be alone
I’m going to a town
That has already been burned down

Hallelujah (Rufus Wainwright)

HALLELUJAH
(RUFUS WAINWRIGHT)

I’ve heard there was a secret chord
that david played, and it pleased the lord
but you don’t really care for music, do you?
it goes like this
the fourth, the fifth
the minor fall, the major lift
the baffled king composing hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah
hallelujah, hallelujah
Your faith was strong but you needed proof
you saw her bathing on the roof
her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you
she tied you
to a kitchen chair
she broke your throne, she cut your hair
and from your lips she drew the hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah
hallelujah, hallelujah
Maybe i’ve been here before
i know this room, i’ve walked this floor
i used to live alone before i knew you
i’ve seen your flag on the marble arch
love is not a victory march
its a cold and its a broken hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah
hallelujah, hallelujah
There was a time you’d let me know
what’s real and going on below
remember when i moved in you?
the holy dark was moving too
and every breath we drew was hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah
hallelujah, hallelujah
Maybe there’s a god above
and all i ever learned from love
was how to shoot at someone who outdrew you
its not a cry you can hear at night
its not somebody who’s seen the light
its a cold and its a broken hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah
hallelujah, hallelujah
hallelujah, hallelujah
hallelujah, hallelujah

ACROSS THE UNIVERSE
(RUFUS WAINWRIGHT)

Words are flowing out like
endless rain into a paper cup,
they slither while they pass.
they slip away across the universe.
Pools of sorrow,
waves of joy
are drifting through my open mind.
possessing and caressing me.
Jai guru deva om.
nothing’s gonna change my world.
nothing’s gonna change my world.
nothing’s gonna change my world.
nothing’s gonna change my world.
Images of broken light which
dance before me, like a million eyes
that call me on and on across the universe.
Thoughts meander like a
restless wind inside a letter box,
they tumble blindly as
they make their way across the universe.
Jai guru deva om.
nothing’s gonna change my world.
nothing’s gonna change my world.
nothing’s gonna change my world.
nothing’s gonna change my world.
Sounds of laughter,
shades of earth
are ringing through my opened mind
inciting and inviting me.
limitless undying love, which
shines around me like a million suns
and calls me on and on across the universe.
Jai guru deva om.
nothing’s gonna change my world.
nothing’s gonna change my world.
nothing’s gonna change my world.
nothing’s gonna change my world.
Nothing’s gonna change my world.
nothing’s gonna change my world.
nothing’s gonna change my world.
nothing’s gonna change my world.
Jai guru deva…
jai guru deva…
jai guru deva…
