MP3: Wilco – “Wilco The Song (The Colbert Report, 10/30/2008)”

Lyrics:
Are you under the impression
This isn’t your life?
Do you dabble in depression?
Is someone twisting a knife in your back?
Are you being attacked?
Oh this is a fact that you need to know, oh, oh, oh, oh

Wilco, Wilco, Wilco will love you, baby

Are times getting tough?
Are the roads you travel rough?
Have you had enough of the old?
Tired of being exposed to the cold?
Stare at your stereo
Put on your headphones and pull out your hair, oh, oh, oh, oh

Wilco, Wilco, Wilco will love you, baby

So many wars that just can’t be won, oh, oh, oh
Even before the battle’s begun, oh, oh, oh
This is all of our arms open wide
Sonic shoulder for you to cry, y, y, y, y

Wilco, Wilco will love you, baby

Is someone twisting a knife in your back?
Are you being attacked?
Oh this is a fact that you need to know

Wilco, Wilco, Wilco, Wilco, Wilco will love you, baby

One Wing



MP3: Wilco – “One Wing (Live @ Lollapalooza 2008: Grant Park; Chicago, IL 08/02/2008):
MP3: Wilco – “One Wing – alt (Live)”

Lyrics:
We once belonged to a bird
Who cast it’s shadow on this world
You were the best thing
And I was the curse
I did my best not to make things worse
for you

But is it true
I always knew this would be our fate
This is what happens when we separate
This happens to all dead weight eventually

We may as well be made of stone
We can’t be phoned (?or “foam”?)
One way we’ll never fight dear
Neither yours nor mine I fear

One wing
we’ll never ever fight dear
Neither yours nor mine I feel
We can only wave goodbye

One wing
we’ll never ever fight dear
neither yours nor mine I feel
we can only wave goodbye
Bye Bye

Black Bull Nova

You And I



MP3: Wilco – “You And I (Live)”

Lyrics:
You and I
We might be strangers
However close we get sometimes
It’s like we never met

You and I
I think we can take it
All the good with the bad
Make something that no one else has but

You and I
You and I
And me and you
What can we do
When the words we use sometimes
Are misconstrued

Well I won’t guess
What’s coming next
I can ever tell you the
Deepest well I’ve ever fallen in to

Oh I don’t wanna know
Oh I don’t wanna know
Oh I don’t need to know
Everything about you

Oh I don’t wanna know and you
Don’t need to know
That much
About me

You and I
We might be strangers
However close we get sometimes
It’s like we never met

You and I
I think we can take it
All the good with the bad
Make something that no one else has but

You and I
You and I
You and I

You Never Know

MP3: Wilco – “You Never Know (Live 01/07/2009)”

Country Disappeared

MP3: Wilco – “Country Disappeared (Live)”

Lyrics:
Wake up we’re here
So much less than you feel
There’s nothing left here
my country has disappeared

The thinker tree’s bleeding
leaf red blood
The Summer sweet dreaming
In through the blush
A whole lot is ending (___)
much too new

Hold out your hand
There’s so much you don’t understand
so stick as close as you can
to all our best-laid plans

you’ve got the white clouds hanging
tonight above you
you’ve got the helicopters dangling
angling to shoot
The shots to feed the hungry
weekend news crew angle

I won’t take no
I won’t let you go
All Out by yourself
I know you need our help
When the cool light shakes you like a chandelier
When the snowflakes break through the atmosphere
Melt on the blue breath of the auctioneers who disappear

So every evening we can watch from above
Crush the cities and (______)
blow ourselves into each others guts
And turn our faces up to the sun

Solitaire



MP3: Wilco – “Solitaire (Live)”

Lyrics:
Once I thought the world was crazy
Everyone was sad and chasing
Happiness and love and
I was the only one above it

Once I thought without a doubt
I had it all figured out
The universe with hands unseen
I was cold as gasoline

It took too long
to see that I was
wrong to
believe in me
only

Once my life was a game so unfair
It beat me down and kept me there
Unaware of my naysaying
Solitaire was all that I was playing

It took too long
to see that I was
wrong to
believe in me
only

I’ll Fight [aka Conscript]

MP3: Wilco – “I’ll Fight [aka Conscript] (Live)”

Lyrics:
I’ll go, I’ll go, I’ll go
I’ll go for you
I’ll fight, I’ll fight
I’ll kill, I’ll kill for you
I will, I will, I will

I’ll go, I’ll go, I’ll go
I’ll go for you
I’ll fight, I’ll fight
I’ll fight, I’ll fight
I’ll die for you
I will, I will, I will

And if I die, I’ll die, I’ll die alone
On some forgotten hill
Abandoned, by the mill
Oh my blood will spring and spill

You wake this (__) from dream and know that I’m gone
You feel it in your heart but not for very long
You rise ……

Sunny Feeling

MP3: Wilco – “Sunny Feeling (Live)”
MP3: Wilco – “Sunny Feeling – alt (Live)”

Lyrics:
I was on my way home
from high school
I was stuck at the crossing
I dug in for a duel

Well at the last moment
I slammed on the brakes
My life split in two directions
Two separate fates

Got on the last flight
into Rotterdam
couldn’t hit the runway
so it took off again

“Aw no need to worry,”
the captain cut in,
“the winds are less heighty,
over in Berlin.”

You know I won’t be there for you,
So this is all I know is true,
Your darkest days are good for you,
The darkest night is nothing new

I could nearly answer
for myself
Is my life a cancer
or anybody else?

I could never find out
I could never say
I now realize
or nearly change my ways.

A sunny feeling is taken away (4x)

I was on my way home
from high school
I was stuck at the crossing
Where the kids are still cruel
Oh, the kids are still cruel

The sunny feeling is taken away (4x)

Everlasting



MP3: Wilco – “Everlasting (Live)”

Lyrics:
Everything alive must die
Every building built to the sky will fall
Don’t try to tell me my everlasting love is a lie

Everlasting
Everything
Oh nothing could be anything at all

Every way the (?)
Every book that I adored
Gone
Like a circus gone by a troubadour
Everlasting love, forever more

Everlasting
Everything
Oh nothing could mean anything at all

Oh I know this might sound sad
Everything goes for the good and the bad
So it all adds up and you should be glad
Everlasting love is all you have

Everlasting
Everything
Oh nothing could mean anything at all
