NINETEEN HAND HORSE FEATURING NATHALIE ARCHANGEL
Revel
(Nineteen Hand Horse Music)

 

A certified survivor of the major upheavals in the music scene during the second half of 1980s, and early ‘90s, singer-songwriter Nathalie Archangel returns to the century 21 pop scene with a 2021 album and a new group that is well worth checking out. Nathalie’s new album Revel and her band, Nineteen Hand Horse features her songs, lead vocals, production and arranging with solid support and aid by 19HH co-founder Mark Montijo, who brings his vocals, guitar and songwriting to a number of tracks here. The two are joined by Mark “Lemonade” Monroe (vocals, harmonic, sax), while a host of musical luminaries adds further luster and excitement to Revel’s musical proceedings. Living up to its humorous marketing plan, complete with noir cover art for Revel, some of the tracks here do indeed fall into the modern day Country & Western genre, yet Nathalie’s music is thankfully still so unique and special so that classic C&W sound is just another musical touchstone on the prismatic sounding Revel. The best way I can describe Revel is as a cross between Bowie-inspired Glam rock and a fresh blend of modern country-rock as played in the year 2021. Speaking about being promoted as a modern day Country & Western music band, Nathalie confesses, “Our band became humble interns of the genre; playing outlaw covers in honky-tonks up and down the West Coast,” adding “Then I started to write; and it was fun, light and flowing again like when I was a kid; except now I have an awful lot more experience to draw from.” Back in the late 1980s and early ‘90s, just as the compact disc was unwinding as the main source of recorded music, Nathalie blew away the pop music world with her 1987 Columbia Records debut cassette Never Let Me Down Again, (which was never released in the US on CD) while her 1991 MCA Records debut CD Owl stunned pop fans. Now, after decades of working in the health care world, and meeting her husband and now bandmate in Nineteen Hand Horse, both Mark Montijo and Nathalie Archangel honor the promise of a new musical revelation with Revel.

 


 

mwe3.com presents an interview with
NINETEEN HAND HORSE

 

mwe3: I told Nathalie about how I was a big fan of her first album, I remember with that album closing track called “Never Let Me Down Again” way back in the late 1980’s and then how her Owl stunned me in 1991. Then I remember I somehow tracked you down and got your phone number in 1991. Do you remember speaking to my Mom who then got me on the phone? How do you look back on both your first album on Columbia and then Owl, which was your MCA album? Why did you say looking back, Never Let Me Down Again was disappointing to you?

Nathalie Archangel: Yes! It is lovely to speak to you again and we need not go 30 years between phone calls! My first record, Nathalie Archangel, did not match my vision but was certainly a step along the road. My second record Owl, is a work of which I am still very proud. Revel, however, is the best work I’ve ever done.

Mark Montijo: Nathalie’s album, Owl was my first experience of her music. I fell in love with her listening to that album. We were friends for a long time and that grew into something more.

mwe3: Was Mark a fan of Nathalie’s music back then or what do you think of it now? At least to my ears, then, it sounded like she was very much ahead of her time.

Mark Montijo: Nathalie’s writing is deeply personal and yet meaningful to many listeners. 

mwe3: You did mention Ray Wylie Hubbard as a more contemporary musical influence in the context of your new Revel album. How did you get into Ray’s music and also, you mention him on the Revel track “Remarkable Dude”. What turns you on about Ray’s music and the whole “outlaw country” music sound in general? Do you have some favorite song by Ray or other Outlaw Country artists?

Nathalie Archangel: I always appreciated Country Music and included a cover of “Stand By Your Man” on my 3rd record Raven. My focus, however, was rock and pop. As time passed, I found the direction pop music was going to be increasingly less relatable. At a certain point I just saw myself as thoroughly irrelevant and stopped doing music entirely. It was Mark who reopened my eyes to the possibilities. He began listening to satellite radio and on a couple of long car trips down Hwy 101, invited me to just listen to both the Classic and Outlaw Country stations – ‘Willie’s Roadhouse’ and ‘Outlaw Country’. At a certain point, something shifted… like the generator turning on and the Tesla coils engaging in Frankenstein, suddenly, I got it! We put together a band to play this music, just for the sheer joy of playing and with no expectations. Then, it happened. I heard “Mother Blues” by Ray Wylie Hubbard and had, shall we say, an epiphany. Here is this man who has been doing his music for many years without winning the Rock & Roll lottery, shall we say? And I hear that famous quote about keeping his gratitude above his expectations and I really hear it! I was able to reframe my perception of myself as irrelevant into something I could revel in.

mwe3: You said that after Owl you walked about from music and studied nursing. You also said you got into studying acupuncture too. Tell us about the turn to medical from music.

Nathalie Archangel: Yes! If you scratch an awful lot of healthcare people, you will find a wealth of creativity; the two go together well. I have never been more proud to be part of an industry. The commitment, compassion and sacrifice healthcare workers have been making quietly on a daily basis is simply awesome. I am not frontline... I have the utmost respect for those who are. True heroes.

Mark Montijo: I think the theme that runs through both music and healthcare is the opportunity to be of service.

mwe3: How did you come up with the name of your new band Nineteen Hand Horse. Could you shed some light on the name Nineteen Hand Horse? I know Mark grew up on a horse ranch too. Funny how in Chinese astrology I’m a horse born in late March 1954. Are either of you horses in Chinese astrology?

Nathalie Archangel: Horses are magnificent aren’t they? I’m a Water Tiger. I like cats in spite of their murderous bent! Purring is at the perfect frequency…

Mark Montijo: I grew up on a large horse ranch in California. When I was about four years old, the Budweiser Clydesdales’ truck needed repair and they pulled into our ranch and asked if they could stay while their truck was being fixed. The horses made a huge impression on me. I wanted this band to have a strong name that conjured up a powerful iconic image related to country music and the West.

mwe3: How did you decide on the band members for Nineteen Hand Horse? I asked you about Brad Sears, so how did you hook up with Brad and then record the Revel album at Brad’s Consumer Music studios. You actually have a number of guitarists on Revel and plus Mark is a great guitarist. Tell us about the guitarists on Revel and how the musicians intersect so to speak, playing together on the various tracks. Is there a core band for Nineteen Hand Horse? Also how did you meet Jae-E who did the engineering and mixing?

Nathalie Archangel: The band has gone through different permutations during the past few years but the lineup you get to know in ‘Horsin’ Round’ is current. The guys, Lowell Stephenson, Ralph Ruiz and Brad Sears are awesome and quite good on camera too as it turns out! Brad has a great music store, studio, conservatory in Vallejo and turns it into the Songbird Lounge once a month. We decided to build on that theme... We met James (Jae-E) through Brad, he recorded, mixed and added his amazing production skills as well. He is incredibly talented.

Mark Montijo: Nathalie, myself and Mark Monroe are the founding members of the band. Brad and Ralph have been with us since the beginning. They are both excellent players. Lowell is a drummer well-respected in the local music community and is a great addition with his playing and his vocals. He adds that beautiful high harmony you hear in the choruses .

mwe3: Thank you for sending me the lyrics to Revel, the whole album. You are underrated lyricists. So tell us how you tend to write songs together as half the songs are co-writes between Mark and Nathalie.

Nathalie Archangel: I’ll let Mark field that one. Unfortunately, I tend to be a bit autocratic about songwriting but we have collaborated quite successfully!

Mark Montijo: Our collaborations happen in many different ways. For example, I had the first two lines of “19 Hand Tale”. Nathalie took that and ran with it. Sometimes Nathalie has an idea that isn’t complete and sometimes she brings a song that is complete. We both have the attitude that we are in service to the song and we try to give the song the room it needs to grow into what it is supposed to be.

mwe3: Tell us about the lead off video for Revel. I also saw your “Horsin’ Around At The Songbird Lounge” video which is brilliant. Tell us about planning videos for Revel and about the “Horsin’ Around” show video. Is Horsin’ Around planned to be a kind of internet TV show? You mentioned it’s like a cross between Marty Stuart Show and Hee-Haw! You shot 3 episodes already but only one has come out so far?

Nathalie Archangel: “Horsin’ ‘Round” was modelled (loosely) on ‘The Marty Stuart Show’ without the budget! We decided to incorporate other elements aside from music to provide a bit more depth, if you will. As it happens, my other talent is a bit dark and weird and Mark’s works very well with his esoteric knowledge! The result is something truly bizarre but I hope quite fun. It is directed by the wonderful Dwayne Soriano and shot by Dwayne and cameraman extraordinaire Don Stone, who is as talented as he is lovely. We aim to do these shows on a regular basis and have a brilliant team in place.

Mark Montijo: Our first video for Revel was “Just Another Honky Tonk Night.” We are so fortunate to partner with an awesome team and we also have a video for “Ghost Train” which should be done soon. To me, “Ghost Train” is about our journey through many lifetimes of reincarnation. 

mwe3: Tell us about your next video, which you said was for “Ghost Train”. What is the story line for the “Ghost Train” video? What is the song about? That song is one of the co-writes on Revel with Mark. The lyrics are truly haunting. Are the lyrics a metaphor for something more serious than just a train? Hence the “Ghost” aspect? What do the “stops” mean like “Addiscombe” and “Pantaleeown”.

Nathalie Archangel: The “Ghost Train” video will be really beautiful! The film collective with whom we work are truly genius and they include our de facto manager Sue Jereczek… she is everything to us, and the brilliant John Butterfield, Kerry Gudjohnsen, who provides voice over for “Horsin’ ‘Round” and Matthew Gardner. They are so talented that it is almost unfathomable! All the places referenced in the song are rumored to be haunted train stations…

mwe3: Mark is also a psychologist. How did he get into that?

Mark Montijo: When I was defending my dissertation at the end of my doctoral studies, there was a small herd of horses in a pasture next to the small room we were in. I could see their ears which were pointed toward me as I stood there explaining my dissertation, the horses were all staring at me like they were supporting me. At that moment I realized that it was my work training horses that helped me develop the qualities that helped make me a good psychotherapist- qualities like listening generously, and paying attention to the quality of the space between us.

mwe3: Tell us about “Something Beautiful (Maybe Tonight)”. Sounds like Nathalie had a rough childhood. Is the song about family dysfunction? It sounds almost like a throwback to the late ‘80s and the guitar solo is excellent in the middle.

Nathalie Archangel: : I love the guitar solo too! Yes it is all true....

Mark Montijo: That solo was done on a Fender Stratocaster through a Matchless amp with a Fulltone Full Drive 2 overdrive pedal. Nathalie had recorded some vocal sounds in her high soprano range and I played off that with some harmonics and then I went into the solo.

mwe3: There’s another song about tracks on the album called “The Withering Romance Of Trains”. Is that kind of a spoof on the early days of trains? Funny how you mention the Tesla. Nobody wants a train when they could drive a cost-free electric car?

Nathalie Archangel: I based it on David Alan Coe’s “You Never Even Call Me By My Name” and that whole bit about the perfect Country song.... I love trains and electric cars but I have a very practical side and have needed to cover a fair number of miles efficiently. Should this song reach Elon’s ears and he feel compelled to provide us a vehicle in exchange for the wonderful concept for a bumper sticker, I would graciously accept.

mwe3: “How ‘Bout That?!” is another favorite track on Revel. Are you annoyed on that track? Is it about facing the future and putting the past to bed both the good and bad? The steel guitar adds some verified country moods but the guitar solo puts the icing on the cake. Maybe it’s a put-down of the dance music craze of the 1980s?

Nathalie Archangel: It has to do with the past, survival and moving forward. These are recurring themes I suppose....

Mark Montijo: Kevin Gallagher did that solo on a lap steel. It’s a great solo… perfect for the song.

mwe3: “Better As A Goddess (Than A Lover)” is another highlight on Revel. Can you tell us how you both worked on the parts to the song abnd who wrote the part about the temple worship? It’s haunting and funny at the same time. Another brilliant co-write.

Nathalie Archangel: We had a great time with that! Mark should elaborate on the guitar riffs but I am responsible for the lyrics. I made a whole lot of little cultural asides on the record.... Robert, did you catch them all?

Mark Montijo: The main riff was inspired by Bill Kirchen’s solo on Commander Cody’s “Hot Rod Lincoln” and the feel of the shuffle is reminiscent of Dwight Yoakum’s “Fast As You” - two awesome players and composers.

mwe3: For the guitar crowd can Mark tell us something about the different guitars, amps and effects that he features on the Revel album and also how did Mark share the guitar leads and rhythms with Brad Sears?

Mark Montijo: I did all the guitar solos except for the guitar solo after the fiddle solo on “Remarkable Dude.” Wes Theobald played that solo. He also mixed that song. He’s an incredible guitarist. For Revel my main guitar was my Telecaster which is loaded with a set of Peter Florence’s pickups. I also used a Fender Stratocaster, a Les Paul and a Gretsch Electromatic with TV Jones pickups. I used two amps; a Matchless Lightning and a ‘66 Fender Princeton Reverb. These amps gave us exactly the sounds we were chasing.

mwe3: Can you tell us about the art work for Revel? I know it’s a sign in many different places but the ‘Corona Light” sign in the background kind of cracks me up. Tell us about working with Sue Jereczek on the album art and any other details in the planning of the album art?

Nathalie Archangel: Sue is not only a brilliant visual artist but one of the coolest people on the planet. The cover shot was actually during a performance at the Clayton Club Saloon - sort of our home base. The Corona Light sign is pure coincidence, or is it...?

mwe3: So thankfully Revel came in spite of a global pandemic. California today and tomorrow the world and the universe! Thank you both again.

Nathalie Archangel: Thank you Robert! We truly appreciate your kindness and strong support.

 

 

 

mwe3.com presents the lyrics for Revel


­Just Another Honky Tonk Night
Nathalie Archangel & Mark Montijo

VERSE 1:

I’m ready - ready as I’ll ever be
Finally pushed past the bounds of my own stupidity
I gave the best years of my life to this rock n roll dream
Ripped the threads that I stitched together apart at the seams

CHORUS:

Well it’s going to be a wonderful night
and if the band plays it tight
The ghost of Patsy might tap me on the shoulder and say
Don’t fall to pieces - forget - it’s crazy cause there’s hope yet
You just remember the shoulders you stand on
when you’re back in baby’s arms

VERSE 2:

My Tele - is just a part of me
And I’ll play it the way that I want to like I’m seventeen
It ain’t about making myself into a rock’n’roll king
Finally got to the place where it’s only the music’s the thing

CHORUS:

Well it’s just another honky tonk night
And if the band plays it tight
The ghost of Waylon might stop me at the loadout and say
Just keep a walking the line – Hey hoss you’re doing just fine
You just play through that smoky wine dream
When you’re lonesome ornery and mean      

VERSE 3:

We gave the best years of our lives to a rock n roll scheme
This music today well it don’t say nothing to me

CHORUS:

Well it’s going to be a magical night
And if the band plays it tight
The ghosts of  Johnny and June could whisper soft in the wings
Burn on in fiery rings - when you’re in Jackson you’ll sing
Like you’re a big mouth woman and
A not so long legged guitar picking man

 

The Withering Romance Of Trains
Nathalie Archangel

VERSE 1:

There are many songs written of the romance of the choo choo
And the many wrongs that some on locomotives who are fools do

PRE-CHORUS:

Prison - Mama - whiskey - drama - pain
Listen - hear the quick approaching train

CHORUS:
                       
Fuck the train I want a Tesla
Because I gotta get to work
Not a Beat Poet I confess love
But I could be a pompous jerk
Fuck the train I want a Tesla
Cause it ain’t 1955
No Kerouac it’s just a mess love
And we’re just trying to survive

VERSE 2:

I heard Johnny sing of the relentless railroad cars
And I’m thinking still about the coffee and cigars

PRE-CHORUS:

I think - prison - Mama - whiskey - drama - pain
Listen - hear the quick approaching train

CHORUS:
                       
Fuck the train I want a Tesla
Because I gotta get to work
Not a Beat Poet I confess love
But I could be a pompous jerk
Fuck the train I want a Tesla
Cause it ain’t 1955
No Kerouac it’s just a mess love
And we’re just trying to survive

VERSE 3:

Boxcar Willie found a Hobo Heaven by the wheels
Don’t that Elvis sound of haunting mystery appeal?

PRE-CHORUS:
            
Just like - Prison - Mama - whiskey - drama - pain
Listen for the quick approaching train

CHORUS:
                       
Fuck the train I want a Tesla
Because I gotta get to work
Not a Beat Poet I confess love
But I could be a pompous jerk
Fuck the train I want a Tesla
Cause it ain’t 1955
No Kerouac it’s just a mess love
And we’re just trying to survive

CHORUS:

Fuck the train I want a Tesla
Because I gotta get to work
Not a Beat Poet I confess love
But I could be a pompous jerk
Fuck the train I want a Tesla
Cause it ain’t 1955
No Kerouac it’s just a mess love
And we’re just trying to survive

 

19 Hand Tale
Nathalie Archangel & Mark Montijo

VERSE 1:

When you told me that you love me I stood 19 hands tall
When you left I took a 19 hand fall
You’re trying to mount the big horse that could only bring pain
I’d like to grab a rope and start all over again

CHORUS:

uuuuh keep your paddock clean
Uuuuh that one is wild and mean
Whoooooah if she’s gonna buck
I might have done better in a pick-up truck

VERSE 2:

On the day I met you I felt 19 Hands high
And on the day I left I had a 19 Hand cry
You tried to ride the big Horse that could only mean pain
I’d like to saddle up and start all over again

CHORUS:

uuuh keep your paddock clean
Smoooooth the grass is lush and green
Whoooooah looks like he’s gonna stray
I might’a ridden better in a corvette stingray

VERSE 3:

I gave up datin’ now I’m 19 Hands shy
I gave up drinkin’ so I’m 19 Hands dry
We tried to tame the big horse that could only mean pain
Why don’t we cut the crap and start all over again?

CHORUS:

uuuuuuh keep your paddock clean
Uuuuh that one’s still wild and mean
Sooooo we’ll find a strawberry roan
We’ll buy a Cadillac and leave the horses home

 

Better as a Goddess (Than a Lover)
Nathalie Archangel & Mark Montijo    

VERSE 1:
 
Remote – and just a little austere
My hope - Was I’d be holding you near
Things change – and I don’t live in the past
With my name - girl we built this to last

CHORUS:

Hold there – I’m better as a goddess than a lover
Wicked cool ice queen
Somewhere - between a bodice ripper and your mother
Limpid pool wine dream
Right now - you’re better as a goddess than a lover

VERSE 2:
 
Real talk - your broken heart breaks my mind -mind
I’d thought - it would be better in time - time
No luck - I live in perpetual spin
But I’m stuck - cause I love you so much I’m all in

CHORUS:
    
But right now - I’m better as a goddess than a lover
Wicked cool ice queen
Hera – Athena, Aphrodite or another?
Artemis brave and lean
Right now - I’m better as a goddess than a lover

BRIDGE:

Ooo Take me to the temple let me worship at it now
We could build a fire in the pyre
Ooo Take me to the temple let me worship at it now
We could build a fire in the pyre
Ooo Take me to the temple let me worship at it now
We could build a fire in the pyre
Ooo Take me to the temple let me worship at it now
We could build a fire in the pyre

VERSE 3:

I’ll play Mrs. Venus de Milo in shades
’ll wait and try not to step on your little feet of clay

CHORUS:

Go stare - I’m better as a goddess than a lover
Wicked cool ice queen
Somewhere - between Scylla and Charybdis and the other
The myth is two not three
Right now - I’m better as a goddess than a lover

TAG:
Hey Venus      Oh Venus
Hey Venus      Oh Venus

 

Remarkable Dude
Nathalie Archangel

VERSE 1:

Once in a while - I can get out from under me
Once in a while - I can open up my eyes wide and truly see
Most of the time - I got to fight the feeling I’m entitled
Most of the time - I still resent that I am not an idol

CHORUS:

Wish I could - eat at the Black Bear and be happy there
Wish I could live with my small share and find satisfaction there
I’d like to let gratitude, fill me from head to shoes
Be like Ray Wylie Hubbard mother blues now there’s a remarkable dude

VERSE 1:

Once in a while - I don’t drip dread from every pore
Once in a while - I can drive past a liquor store
Most of the time - I plaster on my poker face and fake it
Here in my mind - I’m bent over a Chevy hood and taking it

CHORUS:
                
Wish I could - eat at the Black Bear and be happy there
Wish I could live with my small share - and find satisfaction there
I’d like to let gratitude - fill me from head to shoes
Be like Ray Wylie Hubbard mother blues now there’s a remarkable dude

BRIDGE:
 
You know - sometimes I sit in wonder
At 30 years of making like I’m full when I’m still living with the hunger
Yes it’s a hunger  

VERSE 3:

Once in a while - I gotta price out what plastics cost
Look at my smile - Can you tell how many teeth I’ve lost?
Most of the time - I hold a shred of hope and move it forward
Walking the line - My first world crap and me are getting old and awkward

CHORUS:

Guess I’m going to - eat at the Black Bear and be happy there
Wish I could live with my small share - and find satisfaction there
I’d like to let gratitude - fill me from head to shoes
Be like Ray Wylie Hubbard mother blues now there’s remarkable dude
Be like Ray Wylie Hubbard mother blues now there’s remarkable dude

 

Revel
Nathalie Archangel

VERSE 1:
They say death begins in the colon
But it really takes a hold in the mouth
You wake up each day hoping it’s O not RA
Maybe you don’t know what I’m talking about...

PRE-CHORUS:

But you will my friend
Welcome to the beginning of the end

CHORUS:

So you better start
Reveling in your irrelevance
Slow grinding of the day after day
Revel in your irrelevance
Fuck the kids and everything that they say

VERSE 2:

There’s a man sitting back in the corner
I hear he made his fortune in ties
He’s got drool down his face don’t know person time or place
They say it came as such a surprise

PRE-CHORUS:
                       
Read the writing on the wall
Cause it’s coming for us all

CHORUS:

So you better start
Reveling in your irrelevance
Slow the grinding of the day after day
Revel in your irrelevance
Fuck the kids and everything that they say
Revel in your irrelevance
You’re still here but now you’re just in the way
Revel in your irrelevance
And you can be rude - ‘cos no one hears what you say

BRIDGE:
  
I learned that we’re entitled to 120 years
But I’m so decrepit right now I’ll cry the rest out in whiskey tears

VERSE 3:  

See the lady over there talking nonsense
Well she once was the chairman of the board
She got mats in her hair and a thousand yard stare
To her kids she was devoted and adored

PRE-CHORUS:

Read the writing on the wall
Cause it’s coming for us all

CHORUS:

So you better start
Reveling in your irrelevance
Slow the grinding of the day after day
Revel in your irrelevance
Fuck the kids and everything that they say
Revel in your irrelevance
You’re still here but now you’re just in the way
Revel in your irrelevance
So be rude cause no-one hears what you say

Revel - Repeat

 

How ‘Bout That?!
Nathalie Archangel

VERSE 1:
No I don’t learn quick
Always chasing my tail for a while - maybe hit it with a stick
All aboard the next train out
Maybe this time Valhalla or Hollywood Boulevard

CHORUS:

And the world don’t need a rubber legged dancer who’s
spinning like a fool
And the bird don’t sing because she has an answer
She sings because it’s cool
And I just let go of all my self-importance
You know I’m done with that
But if you hear my voice in all of its annoyance
You can say - well How ‘bout that
How ‘bout that- How ‘bout that
How ‘bout that - How ‘bout that

VERSE 2:

Ooh I swore I’d never look back
Cause the ghosts I can see in my rear view are prone to attack
Ride along - If you still got fight
Cause I’m not going anywhere gently - at least not tonight

CHORUS:

And the world don’t need a mother fucking dancer
Who’s spinning on a string
And the bird don’t sing because she has an answer
She only came to sing
And I just let go of all my self importance
you know I’m done with that
But if you hear my voice in all of its annoyance
You can say - well how ‘bout that
How ‘bout that - how ‘bout that
How ‘bout that - how ‘bout that

BRIDGE:

I never thought I’d have another damn thing to say
Always twisting and turning and pissing my whole life away

TAG:

And I just let go of my arrogant assumption
The world still owes me squat
And if you hear my voice still winging on the ocean
You say well how ‘bout that?

We’re gonna fete Ginette tonight - aaah Ginette tonight

 

Something Beautiful (Maybe Tonight)
Nathalie Archangel

VERSE 1:
                       
I guess I’ll see you in Hell
That’s the last thing I ever heard from my Dad
It’s not sad
The man went out liked he lived bellicose and half mad
And I’m cool
An above ground living legacy to two crazy fools
Who wanted to create something beautiful

CHORUS:

Something beautiful - Tell me why it never seems to go right?
Something beautiful - Gets so ugly and vicious in the middle of a fight
Starts so wonderful  - when everyone’s young and full of hope and light
Something beautiful - maybe tonight

VERSE 2:
                
I said goodbye to my mom
‘Cause I get there 20 minutes before she was gone and I left
Left it for somebody else to clean up the mess
Regret - burns a hole in my heart like one of her cigarettes
She was beautiful – Yes so was I

CHORUS:

Something beautiful - tell me why it never seems to go right?
Something beautiful - Gets so ugly and vicious in the middle of a fight
Starts so wonderful  - when everyone’s young and full of hope and light
Something beautiful - maybe tonight

BRIDGE:

And I wonder - if it works out for anyone else?
And I wonder - but I keep it to myself
While you slumber - and I’m tending the family tree
Glad you’re done with the migraines and plastics, anxiety

CHORUS:

Something beautiful - how come it seems to never go right?
Something beautiful - Gets so ugly and vicious in the middle of a fight
Starts so wonderful  - when everyone is young and full of hope and light
Something beautiful - maybe tonight

CHORUS: 

Something beautiful - Tell me why it seems to never go right?
Something beautiful - Gets so ugly and vicious in the middle of a fight
Starts so wonderful  - when everyone is young and full of hope and light
Something beautiful - maybe tonight

 

Ghost Train
Nathalie Archangel

VERSE 1:
 
The wheels came off this line
But it still seems to be rolling fine
traveling pole to pole
With how many other lost souls?

CHORUS:
Ghost Train - Rollin up and down the track
Ghost Train - The engineer sits back and laughs
Ghost train - The steam is blowing ghostly pale
Ghost train - As we’re flying up and over the rails
Ghost Train

VERSE 2:
   
I got on at Addiscombe
Rode it down to Pant-a-lee-own
Union Station Tennessee
To my people back in Connolly

CHORUS:

Ghost Train - Moving up and down the track
Ghost Train - The engineer sits back and laughs
Ghost train - The stack is blowing black as coal
Ghost train - As we’re driving down deep in the hole
Ghost Train

CHORUS:

Ghost train - What passes comes around again

Ghost train - Was your brother next he’ll be your friend
Ghost Train - Peering through the open veil
Ghost Train - As we’re flying up and over the rails
Ghost train

VERSE 3:

The wheels came off this line
But the passengers don’t seem to mind
Hear the whistle piercing through the night
See the green glow of the Withering light

CHORUS:

Ghost Train - Moving up and down the track
Ghost Train - The engineer sits back and laughs
Ghost train - The steam is blowing ghostly pale
Ghost train - As we’re flying up and over the rails
