"James" as written by and Lloyd Cole....
We are headed for the great Smokey Mountains to see the wild flowers
Bloom in spring
'Cause we've decided that there's no better place to be for two young people
Who just wanna do their thing in the spring

I know we're gonna be happy

'Cause James is a freedom fighter
And he lives for the moment
His parents are hippies
And he sees everything through a rainbow
He's never unhappy cause he never wears a watch
He lives on his mountain bike
And sees beauty in everyone

James says he's gonna change the world
James says that I am his flower girl
James and I we're gonna make a difference
Just wait and see
We're gonna set the world free

It's two years later now and we're both out of college
And we've decided to love one another for eternity
I've got a good job but James says no one understands him
He's an artist
And he needs time to find out what that means

James says he's gonna change the world
James says that I am his flower girl
James and I we're gonna make a difference
Just wait and see
We're gonna set the world free
We're gonna set the world
Free

He answers to a higher calling
The moon and the sun and the stars are falling
Through his time and his space
And I'm lucky to be a part of it all

James says he's gonna change the world
James says that I am his flower girl
James and I we're gonna make a difference
Just wait and see
We're gonna set the world free
We're gonna set the world free
We're gonna set the world free

James is a freedom fighter
He was gonna make a difference
He wore out the path he needed to take
To find the life he thought would just happen to him
Like the changing of a season
