"Baba Ghanooj" as written by and Stevens/spahr/rivers....
Since I've been here
You've run rings 'round my eyes
Since I've been here
I have seen where I want to be
I want, 'cause you've got, a name

A chance brought to near
I reach to fill out my life
With my place made so clear
I can see where it's leaving me
I want, 'cause you've got, a name

Cast in obscurity
Where extras steal the lines and
Watching the critics gleam
That's what they had in mind and
All that's left in me
Is hating why I'm "fine" and
I want what you've got,
I want 'cause you've got, a name
Fade and fall away


Pass through your day
Unentangled by mine
No nettle or grate
That seem to be placed here in my way
I want, 'cause you've got, a name

There's more than sanity
I'm bored with clean and quaint and
There's more than grasses green
When something brightened faint and
So I want more than me
And someone else to blame and
I want if you've got
I want 'cause you've got a name

Tell me stranger
If I look frightened
Soon I'll swallow it if
Not today
We all know heaven
Is just a slap away






Since I've been here
You've run rings round my eyes
Since I've been here
I can see where I want to be
I want, 'cause you've got, a name

Cast in obscurity
Where extras steal the lines and
Watching the critics gleam
That's what they had in mind and
I want what you've got,
I want 'cause you've got, a name.
Fade and fall away
Fade and fall away
Fade and fall away
