Because you know that it was really a Jeff Buckley kind of day The sky covered the city in that pretty kind of gray I saw you on the corner and I thought I heard you say, “Hey, don’t I know your silly face from somewhere?” I said, “Yes, I do believe indeed that I remember you With the pebble on your shoulder and the devil in your shoes. Tell me, are they still dancing up a storm down at Kanga Roo’s?” You said, “I’ll be there tonight, why don’t you come there?” And I knew right away that you would break my heart All the minutes of the day that you would break my heart Yes I knew right away that you would break my heart And I stayed anyway Because you know that it was really a Jeff Buckley kind of day As we walked along, I said, “I wish I’d seen him at Sine. And I know it might sound strange but I’ll say it anyway - Almost every day at some point I think of him.” You said, “It’s awesome when someone like that gets inside your soul - And I know he’s only human and it’s only rock and roll. But to hear that voice and stare into those lonely eyes of coal… How could you do anything but love him?” And I knew then and there that you would break my heart Completely fair and square that you would break my heart Yes I knew then and there that you would break my heart And I stayed anyway When I got to Kanga Roo’s, there was an air about the place I had to catch my breath the moment that I saw your face We slow danced as the DJ played the third song from Grace And when it ended, you kissed me like you meant it Now a month has passed, there's been no sign of you in my life “So Real” inside my head, this crazy dream you’d be my wife The pain is somewhere in between a safety pin and butter knife But there’s no way I ever could resent it ‘Cause I knew all along you would break my heart No matter right or wrong that you would break my heart Yes I knew all along that you would break my heart And I stayed anyway Because you know that it was really a Jeff Buckley kind of day

Fat on humble pie I used to be thin Now I'm fat on humble pie I used to be thin (Anorexic) Now I'm fat on humble pie Get on a diet Gotta get on a diet 'Cause I'm fat on humble pie I used to be thin (Anorexic) Now I'm fat on humble pie

One World 03:28
A world gone crazy Hard to know just where to turn I walk around in fear It's all gonna crash and burn I get down on my knees and pray With these tears here in my eyes for all humanity I hope we can remember That it's one world Yes it's one world It's only one world we've all been given Said it's one world Yes it's one world It's only one world we all have to live in We got tempers And we take them out sometimes With such hostility Words go off like landmines I just wish we all could say That we've come to compromise No more insanity And yes we do remember that it's one world Now I may not agree with everything you say to me And you may think I'm totally in the wrong But the good that we could bring By letting real freedom ring Is the very thing that helps me sing this song Sing the song! Turn on the TV and as far as I can tell It really looks as though we're all headed straight for hell Those who deny it every day and refuse to recognize Chance of calamity Just all need to remember that it's one world All you leaders with your hands on all the power Have lost your decency In what could be your finest hour There must surely be a way To interact with calm replies and not with vanity We just hope you all remember That it's one world
