about

Craig Robertson Boston, Massachusetts

I live in a landscape of ghosts and scientific oddities. Memories surface like flying fish in a glassy ocean. Songwriting for me is like a spiderweb; the strangest things fly into it.

Track Name: Coney Island Baby
Coney Island Baby


Every night she comes
To take me out to dreamland
When I'm with her, I'm the richest
Man in the town
She's a rose, she's the pearl
She's the spin on my world
All the stars make their wishes on her eyes

She's my Coney Island Baby
She's my Coney Island Girl
She's a princess, in a red dress
She's the moon in the mist to me
She's my Coney Island Baby
She's my Coney Island Girl
Track Name: Is She Really Going Out With Him?
IS SHE REALLY GOING OUT WITH HIM?
Joe Jackson, 1978

|:G D |F C :|

G D F C G D F C
Pretty women out walking with gorillas down my street.
G D F C G D F C
>From my window I'm staring while my coffee grows cold.
G D
Look over there! (Where?)
F C G D F C
There's a lady that I used to know.
G C G D G D F C
She's married now, or engaged, or something, so I am told.

C D G
Is she really going out with him?
C Bm Em D C
Is she really gonna take him home tonight?
C D Em
Is she really going out with him?
C
'Cause if my eyes don't deceive me,
D G
There's something going wrong around here.


Tonight's the night when I go to all the parties down my street.
I wash my hair and I kid myself I look real smooth.
Look over there! (Where?)
Here comes Jeanie with her new boyfriend.
They say that looks don't count for much.
If so, there goes your proof.

(refrain)

Bm7 C D7sus4 E7sus4 Bm7
But if looks could kill, there's a man there who's more down as dead.
C D7sus4 E7sus4 Bm7
'Cause I've had my fill, "Listen you, take your hands off her head!"
C D7sus4 E7sus4 D7sus4 E7sus4 D7sus4
I get so mean around this scene! Hey, hey, hey.

Track Name: Alison
Alison


Oh, it's so funny to be seeing you after so long, girl
And with the way you look, I understand that you were not impressed
But I heard you let that little friend of mine
Take off your party dress
I'm not gonna get too sentimental
Like those other sticky valentines
'Cause I don't know if you are loving somebody
I only know it isn't mine
Allison, I know this world is killing you
Oh, Allison, my aim is true
Well, I see you've got a husband now
Did he leave your pretty fingers lying in the wedding cake?
You used to hold him right in your hand
But it took all that he could take
Sometimes I wish that I could stop you from talking
When I hear the silly things that you say
I think somebody better put out the big light
Track Name: White Flag
WHITE FLAG

Dm
I know you think that I shouldn't still love you,
Am
I'll tell you that.
Dm
But if I didn't say it, well I'd still have felt it
Am
where's the sense in that?
C
I promise I'm not trying to make your life harder
Gm Am
Or return to where we were

Chorus:


Bb F
Well I will go down with this ship
Gm Dm
And I won't put my hands up and surrender
Bb F
There will be no white flag above my door
C Gm
I'm in love and always will be


Verse:

I know I left too much mess and
destruction to come back again
And I caused nothing but trouble
I understand if you can't talk to me again
And if you live by the rules of "it's over"
then I'm sure that makes sense

Chorus:


Bridge:

F
And when we meet which I'm sure we will
Am
All that was then will be there still
Gm
I'll let it pass and hold my tongue
C
And you will think that I've moved on....
Chorus 3x
Track Name: Crashin' and Burnin'
Crashin' & Burnin' Lyrics

Well ii's always gotta work out for you, doesn't it
Everything's just got to be fine
When you see your old boyfriends on the street
They all say hello and you're so sweet
Well it ain't going to be like that this time
'Cause I'm crashin' and I'm burnin'
I'm going down in flames
I'm crashin' and I'm burnin'
And you're watching me
You're just watching me
And you like to talk about honesty
Like you just invented the word
'Till all your silly lies are left
Just spilling from your eyes
And I don't believe a single thing I hear
'Cause I'm crashin' and I'm burnin'
I'm going down in flames
I'm crashin' and I'm burnin'
And you're watching me
You're just watching me
Don't tell me that you're sorry
Don't tell me that I'm wrong
'Cause this is your favourite story
You've known it along
And I'm crashin' and I'm burnin'
I'm going down in flames
I'm crashin' and I'm burnin'
And you're watching me
You're just watching me
Track Name: Mixed Up, Shook Up Girl
MIXED UP, SHOOK UP GIRL

Candle lit, and my eyes are slits
Jumpin' now, paper clip.
Make a move,sail a ship,
Tap it in, tap it in, ruby lips.

She's a mixed up,shook up girl,
Got me so strung out.
I don't know what to do.
She's a mixed up, mixed up, shook up girl.

Take a breath, in the night.
Hurry over, she said,
But there was no one in sight.
Now break away, is in her eyes.
You know that little girl, she cut me deep,
Inside out.

She's a mixed up,shook up girl,
Got me so strung out.
I don't know what to do.
She's a mixed up,mixed up,shook up girl.

Hey, you, I remember
All the empty streets.
Fill me now.
And though you're gone away,
I know not forever.
Why don't you just come over here and tell me, baby
Is it over now?

She's a mixed up,shook up girl,
Got me so strung out.
I don't know what to do.
She's a mixed up, mixed up, shook up girl.
She's a mixed up, shook up girl,
She's a mixed up, shook up girl.
And she got me so strung out...
She's a mixed up, shook up girl...

And she got me so strung out ...

She's a mixed up, shook up girl ...
