  1. Valerie Plame

    Valerie Plame

    Oh Valerie Plame, if that really is your name
    I will shout the same to the world
    Dear Valerie Plame, so they made a wreck of you
    Well give me the rest of you and I.ll get the world

    But you were just some silly girl
    Taking in the sights of your empire.s colony
    So I took you into my confidence
    Without a thought of consequence
    To my heart or to my mind

    But Valerie Plame, if that really is your name
    I will shout the same to the world

    Oh Valerie Plame, if that really is your name
    I will shout the same from on high
    Dear Valerie Plame, I.ll look for that long exchange
    Outside of the bureau de change in Shanghai

    I was just some stupid boy on a bus
    When your nom de guerre was code name Caroline
    So my vespa became your chariot
    From the green zone Marriott
    To be etched upon my mind

    But Valerie Plame, if that really is your name
    I will shout the same to the world

    And when they flashed your picture cross the screen
    How my heart seemed to leap out of me
    And they attached a list of your identities
    But the one you.ll always be

    Is Valerie Plame, if that really is your name
    I will shout the same to the world
    Dear Valerie Plame, if that really is your name
    I will shout the same to the world

    Hey Valerie Plame
    Hey Valerie Plame
    Hey Valerie Plame
    Hey Valerie Plame

  2. O New England

    O New England

    We.d come seven hours down
    Took the blue line to see where we hopped out
    And I was only joking, I was only joking
    And I was only trying to get a laugh

    You say this was the furthest that we had come
    We traveled so far to watch it fall undone
    And I had lost my token, you were looking bent and broken
    Staring sideways with the rain coming down

    But I am so enthralled
    O New England
    La da dum dum
    O New England
    La da dum dum

    This here is the fable of a failed attempt
    To find new life in a love in the seat of its origin
    From Long to Coney Island, from Mid to West to Upper Highland
    And all I got is this ill-gotten full color souvenir

    The new millennium in New York
    And all of New England
    La da dum dum
    O New England
    La da dum dum

    O New England
    In the face of your empire
    I think I.d rather just wait in the car
    And return to the turnpike
    Watching New England.s skyline sinking below
    Sinking below

    We.d come seven hours down
    We.d come seven hours down, down
    We.d come seven hours down
    We.d come seven hours down, down
