I'm leaving now I cannot stay
I haven't got the time

Don't use the stars to find me
Don't expect them to align
If you see me when you're dreaming
Please don't take it as a sign

I'm leaving now I cannot stay
I haven't got the time

Remember me with yellow hair and freckles on my nose
Remember me in purple shoes and turquoise pantyhose
Remember my two ankles, my fingers, and my toes
Remember me with yellow and freckles on my nose

(Ahh, ooh, ahh)

Your name is just a noise now
Your face is only skin

The only thing we ever sing
Are songs of "Could've been"
We never got to end the thing
We never could begin

Your name is just a noise now
Your face is only skin

At first sight, that album cover looks like it has Chewbacca in the middle.

with maybe just a touch of Poe.
The background music reminds me of another song that I can't remember at this time.  Completely threw me off.  I know this is bad to do but the verse "The rain is falling ..." is about all I can remember.

Took a walk... did some googling,  It's the Moody Blues - The Word it OM.

Does anybody else hear that? 
I'm really loving this album!

I love her voice and the vocal harmonies of some of the songs. Sometimes a bit Fleetwood Mac'ish...

this was written by Christopher Guest for his new movie "The Fair Winkles"

Yes, this is very good... vivid and unique lyrics, with original concrete images...  emotive music...  love it...

Hey, I actually got out of bed on a cold morning to run to my computer to look up this group. Whatsamatta you?  You no like?

Tough tootsies. 

To counter balance your 3's, 4's, and 5's, I

gave them a 10.  So there.

"Remember me with purple shoes and turquoise pantyhose"? That's a memorable and eye-catching outfit, right enough. Unlike this unmemorable and non-ear-catching ditty. The land of nod beckons... {#Sleep}
I like
more of this kind of stuff? yuck.
There's an "oh-oh" sound, either voice or synthesizer, in the background that just kind of rubs me the wrong way, but I still gave it a 6.

I want to hear more from this band.  "Watch the Moon Disappear" is a really great track.
Oooh first dibs.  Well I think its great and glad to beat any naysayers in.
