    I just figured out the lyrics to all the songs. Well most of the lyrics. Good stuff

    World of Sun

    My world of sun
    what have you done
    what have you done
    my world of sun
    did you go
    everybody touched you

    My world of stars
    tell me where you are
    where you are
    my world of stars
    are you driving through fields of flowers

    My world smoke
    to which I woke
    to which I woke
    my world of smoke
    what a twisted little frail disbelief

    Floorboards

    Dark skinned woman
    Wheeled in your body
    Like a sword drawn from the laws (?)

    I’m a crooked crooked man
    Creaking ‘cross your floorboards
    I left you still sleeping
    you looked just like a little raincloud
    from which I had no shelter
    and it’s been raining all of my life

    Dark skinned woman
    I’m creaking ‘cross your floorboards

    Romance at the petrol station

    December 25th I lost you at the farm
    I found you in the dark at a tropical bar
    On February fourth I held you in the back of an east bound silver top taxi-car
    I led you to the train that went to federation and I kissed you out the front of the petrol station

    And I really think you’d like it here
    about this time of year
    all of the clouds hang just like a poor man’s chandelier

    On march 17th we were drinking at the beach
    at the top of the hill we got caught in the rain
    I didn’t hear from you from June till December and I waited for you but your bus never came and
    I drove past the cane fields looking for something to remind me of something to remind me of you

    And I really think you’d like it here
    at this time of year
    All of the people getting rid of their excess Christmas cheer

    And its the first new moon since the new years party
    I spilled beer on the photo i took of you at the beach and
    I made you look golden for a moment in the garden
    like the sun on a cloud that is just out of reach
    There’s a new star shining but I haven’t named it
    It’s been waiting for you to come back and claim

    And I really think you’d like it here
    At this time of year
    All the moonlight would make all your money look insincere

    And at this time of year
    I think you’d like it here
    all the children are playing and trying to disappear
    and I wish you were here at this time of year
    with your temperate touch and your tropical tears
    the streets are empty and the smoke is almost clear

    New Amnesia Skies

    The clouds could open like a split in your dress
    Of your Sunday best in the alley
    With your horoscope kiss
    The world is never turning slowly enough
    For your body to keep up
    And your healing our scars in reverse

    Now I’m saving all of my secrets
    Till I get through
    back to you
    Now I’m heading down in the evening
    To breathe the breath you left behind
    Leave the morning where it lies
    Under new amnesia skies

    You look so dangerous reflected on the lake
    With your streetlight handshake
    And shoulders sharp enough to cut
    And if some easy way with a lovers trip
    Beyond the mountain tip to kiss you once slips away

    Now I’m saving all of my secrets
    Till I get through back to you
    Now I’m heading down in the evening
    To breathe the breath you left behind
    Leave the morning where it lies
    Under new amnesia skies

    38 Degree Blues

    I saw you down at the station
    Holding a photo of dumb luck
    I saw you down at the station
    Holding a picture of dumb luck
    A the conductor took your hands
    I heard something come unstuck

    I read your notes on the land
    Who cast no shadow on the open road
    I read your notes on the man
    who cast no shadow upon the open road
    I heard a monkey squealing
    In the belly of the river floatin’

    It’s 38 degrees
    with a car that won’t start
    It’s 38 degrees
    with a car that won’t start
    You’ve got nowhere else to be
    Staying here tears you apart

    Took Starlight Seven Years

    [something]
    She’s got that look
    Got that look in her eyes
    Tonight
    Tonight

    Smoke caressing the billboards
    Where she stopped on the roadside
    Somewhere just inside the Marlborough stretch

    Took starlight seven years
    Seven years to get here
    Just to fall across her shoulder-blade
    Her shoulder-blade
    Her shoulder-blade
    Her shoulder-blade
    Her shoulder-blade
    Her shoulder-blade

    When They Put it All On Red

    And the hole in the sky and the ten thousand miles only you
    And your hesitant hips and the sun on your lips just for you
    and the steam from the bath dancing up upon the glass is for you
    is for you

    And the wind through the hair that’s stuck in the chair
    [something]
    and all of the trees are getting naked and falling asleep
    [something]

    And the light from the street something beach just for you
    and the band plays along to the nights all belonging to you
    and the needles and trees and the box of bees making honey just for you
    the blood off the meat and the button you pressed to repeat your favourite song is for you
    [something]
    [something]

    And I love you its true and you know that they all do too
    and they gamble for you when they put it all on red
    when they put it all on red
    It’s all for you
    when they put it all on red

    Short cuts to true love

    Country lovers
    blood suckers
    City slickers
    Bad lovers
    [something]

    Black candy in the bad blood
    pretty women in a flashflood
    and the city [something]

    Everything
    like a bullet through the dust
    We’re (?) looking
    for a short cut to true love
    We’re looking
    like a bullet through the dust
    everything like a short cut to true love
    a short cut to true love

    And your eye’s like an atlas
    getting lost on the mattress
    on the hotel down the beach
    six crosses
    dead flowers
    lost wisdom
    small hours
    and the stars are on their sleeve

    Everything like a bullet through the dust
    We’re looking for a short cut to true love
    We’re looking like a bullet through the dust
    Everything for a short cut to true love
    A short cut to true love
    A short cut to true love

    for the world of sun I think it’s “Did you burn every body (who) touched you”. Awesome job man. Love this

    WORLD OF SUN – STOLEN VIOLIN (Jordan Ireland)
    ——————————————————————————-
    Tabbed by: Tazman Osborne

    Tuning: capo 2nd fret

    This is a by-ear approximation of the accompanying guitar. The song has a
    pretty wavy nature so you’ll have to feel the timing for yourself and
    perhaps fill in any gaps with some extra notes from the appropriate chord…
    I’ve put the approximate chord which the arpeggios have been based on above
    the sections of tab, below the lyrics.

    His guitar in the recording is not tuned perfectly with a tuner, so if you’re
    playing along with the song then it probably won’t sound good unless you tweak
    your tuning a bit to suit his reference note.

    good luck
