about

First album from Eytan Mirsky and now out of print. Somewhat different from his other material, but if you need to have it all here it is. The first 10 tracks are the original album as released in 1996. The other 5 tracks are rarities never included on any album. They are here to make this amazing deal even more amazing...

Track Name: Shoulder to Cry On
SHOULDER TO CRY ON

YOU KNOW I PUT A SHOW ON WHEN I’M ON THE TOWN,
BUT SOMETIMES LATE AT NIGHT MY MASK COMES TUMBLING DOWN.

I NEED A SHOULDER TO CRY ON, I NEED A FRIEND WHEN I’M BLUE,
I NEED A SHOULDER TO CRY ON, TOO, LET ME CRY ON YOU.

YOU KNOW I KID AROUND, I LIKE TO LAUGH AND JOKE,
BUT SOMETIMES LATE AT NIGHT IT ALL GOES UP IN SMOKE.

I NEED A SHOULDER TO CRY ON, I NEED A FRIEND WHEN I’M BLUE,
I NEED A SHOULDER TO CRY ON, TOO, LET ME CRY ON YOU.

I DON’T WANNA GET WEEPY ON YOU.
I’M NOT TRYING TO WASH YOU IN MY TEARS.
I’M JUST LOOKING FOR SOMEONE, BABY,
TO UNDERSTAND MY FEARS.

I NEED A SHOULDER TO CRY ON, I NEED A FRIEND WHEN I’M BLUE,
I NEED A SHOULDER TO CRY ON, TOO, LET ME CRY ON YOU.

YOU KNOW I PUT A SHOW ON WHEN I’M OUT WITH YOU,
BUT WHEN THE SHOW IS OVER, I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO, ‘CAUSE,

I NEED A SHOULDER TO CRY ON, I NEED A FRIEND WHEN I’M BLUE,
I NEED A SHOULDER TO CRY ON, TOO, LET ME CRY ON YOU.
Track Name: Conversation
CONVERSATION

WHEN I COME OVER TO YOUR HOUSE, BABY,
YOU TURN THE LIGHTS DOWN LOW,
YOU PUT YOUR ARMS AROUND ME,
YOU NEVER LET ME GO.

YOU DON’T BELIEVE ME WHEN I TELL YOU WHAT I WANT IS CONVERSATION –
SOME GOOD CONVERSATION -
YOU DON’T BELIEVE ME WHEN I TELL YOU WHAT I WANT IS CONVERSATION.

WHEN I COME OVER TO YOUR HOUSE, BABY,
YOU OPEN THE BEDROOM DOOR,
AND WHEN I TRY TO RESIST YOU,
YOU THROW ME DOWN ON THE FLOOR.

YOU DON’T BELIEVE ME WHEN I TELL YOU WHAT I WANT IS CONVERSATION –
SOME GOOD CONVERSATION -
YOU DON’T BELIEVE ME WHEN I TELL YOU WHAT I WANT IS CONVERSATION.

I KNOW IT’S HARD FOR YOU TO SEE
I LOVE YOU FOR YOUR HIGHER QUALITIES.
THE THINGS YOU LIKE ARE LOTS OF FUN,
BUT MY LOVE FOR YOU IS A CEREBRAL ONE.

WHEN I COME OVER TO YOUR HOUSE, BABY,
YOU GREET ME IN THE NUDE,
AND WHEN I TURN MY EYES AWAY,
YOU THINK I’M BEING RUDE.

YOU DON’T BELIEVE ME WHEN I TELL YOU WHAT I WANT IS CONVERSATION –
SOME GOOD CONVERSATION -
YOU DON’T BELIEVE ME WHEN I TELL YOU WHAT I WANT IS CONVERSATION.

WHEN I COME OVER TO YOUR HOUSE, BABY,
YOU OPEN THE BEDROOM DOOR,
AND WHEN YOU GET WHAT YOU WANTED,
YOU HOLLER “MORE MORE MORE.”

YOU DON’T BELIEVE ME WHEN I TELL YOU WHAT I WANT IS CONVERSATION –
SOME GOOD CONVERSATION -
YOU DON’T BELIEVE ME WHEN I TELL YOU WHAT I WANT IS
YOU DON’T BELIEVE ME WHEN I TELL YOU WHAT I WANT IS
YOU DON’T BELIEVE ME WHEN I TELL YOU WHAT I WANT IS
CONVERSATION.
Track Name: How Could You?
HOW COULD YOU?

YOU CAUGHT ME SO UNAWARE
BEFORE I CAUGHT PROTECT MY HEART.
I NEVER THOUGHT THE LOVE WE’D SHARE
WOULD END BEFORE IT GOT TO START.

HOW COULD YOU LEAD ME TO BELIEVE THAT YOU COULD LOVE ME,
BABY, THEN SAY GOODBYE?
HOW COULD YOU LEAD ME TO BELIEVE THAT YOU COULD WANT ME,
BABY, THEN MAKE ME CRY?

I THINK ABOUT WHEN WE FIRST MET
AND EVERYTHING I HAD SEEMED NEW.
YOUR KISSES WERE THE SWEETEST YET.
THEY DIDN’T MEAN A THING TO YOU.

HOW COULD YOU LEAD ME TO BELIEVE THAT YOU COULD LOVE ME,
BABY, THEN SAY GOODBYE?
HOW COULD YOU LEAD ME TO BELIEVE THAT YOU COULD WANT ME,
BABY, THEN MAKE ME CRY?

HOW COULD YOU – MAKE ME THINK YOUR LOVE IS TRUE?
HOW COULD YOU – TURN AROUND AND SAY WE’RE THROUGH?
HOW COULD YOU – LEAVE ME HERE WITHOUT A CLUE?
HOW COULD YOU – HOW COULD YOU?

I THINK ABOUT THE PAIN I FEEL,
WHEN ALL I DID WAS TREAT YOU RIGHT.
I THOUGHT THAT OUR LOVE WAS REAL.
I GUESS I SHOULD’VE SEEN THE LIGHT.

HOW COULD YOU LEAD ME TO BELIEVE THAT YOU COULD LOVE ME,
BABY, THEN SAY GOODBYE?
HOW COULD YOU LEAD ME TO BELIEVE THAT YOU COULD WANT ME,
BABY, THEN MAKE ME CRY?

HOW COULD YOU, BABY? HOW COULD YOU, DARLING, ETC.
Track Name: Shoulda Told You
I SHOULDA TOLD YOU

WHEN WE FIRST MET
I WAS SET
TO DO EVERYTHING THAT I COULD DO
TO GET YOU TO BE MINE
NOW I FIND I’M BLOCKED BY INHIBITIONS, SUSPICIONS.

ALL I WANTED WAS TO HOLD YOU, GUESS I SHOULDA TOLD YOU
ALL I WANTED WAS TO HOLD YOU, GUESS I SHOULDA TOLD YOU
ALL I WANTED WAS TO HOLD YOU, GUESS I SHOULDA TOLD YOU

YOU MET A GUY
WITH AN EYE
FOR THE GIRLS AS BEAUTIFUL AS YOU,
AND HE KNEW WHAT TO SAY
AND THE WAY TO PLAYFULLY CONFESS IT, EXPRESS IT.

ALL I WANTED WAS TO HOLD YOU, GUESS I SHOULDA TOLD YOU
ALL I WANTED WAS TO HOLD YOU, GUESS I SHOULDA TOLD YOU

I GUESS I WAS SCARED TO OPEN UP TO YOU.
I GUESS I COULDN’T BELIEVE THAT YOU COULD LOVE ME, TOO.

NOW YOU’RE A PAIR
AND YOU SHARE
ALL THE LOVE I PICTURED IN MY DREAMS,
AND IT SEEMS I’M TO BLAME
‘CAUSE I NEVER CAME TO YOU ABOUT IT, TO SHOUT IT…

ALL I WANTED WAS TO HOLD YOU, GUESS I SHOULDA TOLD YOU
ALL I WANTED WAS TO HOLD YOU, GUESS I SHOULDA TOLD YOU
ALL I WANTED WAS TO HOLD YOU, GUESS I SHOULDA TOLD YOU
ALL I WANTED WAS TO HOLD YOU, GUESS I SHOULDA TOLD YOU
Track Name: East Village Girl
EAST VILLAGE GIRL

I SAW THIS GIRL DOWN IN ALPHABET LAND –
HEY, HEY, EAST VILLAGE GIRL –
RINGS IN HER NOSE AND TATTOOS ON HER HANDS –
HEY, HEY EAST VILLAGE GIRL –
THERE IS NO PRICE THAT I WOULDN’T PAY
JUST TO MEET WITH YOU ON AVENUE A;
EAST VILLAGE GIRL, YOU’RE LOOKING FINE TO ME.

SHE HAD THE SMELL OF A ROCK AND ROLL BAR -
HEY, HEY, EAST VILLAGE GIRL –
LOOK IN HER EYES, YOU FORGET WHO YOU ARE –
HEY, HEY, EAST VILLAGE GIRL –
THERE IS NOTHING THAT I WOULDN’T DO;
RIP UP MY HEART AND I’LL GIVE IT TO YOU;
EAST VILLAGE GIRL, YOU’RE LOOKING FINE TO ME.

EAST VILLAGE GIRL, YOU’RE LOOKING FINE TO ME.
PLEASE TELL ME THAT OUR LOVE WAS MEANT TO BE.

IF I COULD GET ME THAT EAST VILLAGE GIRL -
HEY, HEY, EAST VILLAGE GIRL –

HEY, HEY, EAST VILLAGE GIRL –
I WOULD TAKE A WALK FROM HERE TO L.A.
IF I COULD SLEEP WITH YOU ON AVENUE A;
EAST VILLAGE GIRL YOU’RE LOOKING FINE TO ME.

EAST VILLAGE GIRL, YOU’RE LOOKING FINE TO ME.
PLEASE TELL ME THAT OUR LOVE WAS MEANT TO BE.

Track Name: I Don't Believe
I DON’T BELIEVE

I DON’T BELIEVE THE THINGS THEY’RE SAYING.
I DON’T BELIEVE THE THINGS THEY’RE TELLING ME ARE TRUE.
THEY SAY YOU GOT A BOYFRIEND, HE’S PRETTIER THAN ME,
BUT I MADE UP MY MIND TO NEVER SEE WHAT I DON’T BELIEVE.

I DON’T BELIEVE THOSE NASTY RUMORS
I DON’T BELIEVE THE THINGS THEY’RE WHISPERING TO ME.
THEY SAY YOU GOT A BOYFRIEND, HE’S BIG AND AWFUL STRONG,
BUT I MADE UP MY MIND THEY MUST BE WRONG ‘CAUSE I DON’T BELIEVE.

YEAH, I HAVE ANALYZED THOROUGHLY,
AND WHAT I DON’T BELIEVE CAN NEVER BE.

I DON’T BELIEVE THE THINGS THEY’RE SAYING.
I DON’T BELIEVE THE THINGS THEY WANT ME TO BELIEVE.
THEY SAY YOU GOT A BOYFRIEND, HE’S WORTHY OF YOUR LOVE
I’LL NEVER BE THE ONE YOU’RE DREAMING OF, BUT I DON’T BELIEVE.
I DON’T BELIEVE, I DON’T BELIEVE.
THEY SAY YOU GOT A BOYFRIEND, HE’S WORTHIER THAN I
AND THERE’S NO ROOM FOR ME LEFT IN YOUR LIFE, BUT I DON’T BELIEVE.
Track Name: She Doesn't Exist
SHE DOESN’T EXIST

I’LL SPENT A LIFETIME LOOKING FOR A WIFE-TO-BE.
SHE’S NOT THE KIND OF GIRL WHO GOES FOR BOYS LIKE ME,
BUT WHEN SHE MEETS ME SHE WILL LIKE WHAT SHE WILL SEE,
AND KISS ME LIKE A FELLOW SHOULD BE KISSED…
BUT SHE DOESN’T EXIST, NO SHE DOESN’T EXIST, NO SHE DOESN’T EXIST.

SHE’LL BE THE KIND OF GIRL WHO KNOWS HER WAY AROUND
THE SWINGING PARTIES AND THE NIGHTCLUBS ON THE TOWN,
BUT WHEN SHE MEETS ME SHE’LL DECIDE TO SETTLE DOWN,
AND SHE WILL SHOW ME EVERYTHING I MISSED…
BUT SHE DOESN’T EXIST, NO SHE DOESN’T EXIST, NO SHE DOESN’T EXIST.

PEOPLE TELL ME I’M A BIG SCHLEMIEL,
WAITING FOR A GIRL WHO CAN’T BE REAL.
I JUST TELL ‘EM THAT’S THE WAY I FEEL,
AND I’LL NEVER CHANGE.

SHE’LL BE MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN ANY BEAUTY QUEEN,
SHE’LL HAVE THE SWEETEST PERSONALITY YOU’VE SEEN.
HER HEART IS LOVING AND HER MIND IS SO SERENE.
SHE’LL HAVE EVERYTHING THAT’S ON MY LIST…
BUT SHE DOESN’T EXIST, NO SHE DOESN’T EXIST, NO SHE DOESN’T EXIST.

HER HEART IS LOVING AND HER MIND IS SO SERENE.
SHE’LL HAVE EVERYTHING THAT’S ON MY LIST…
BUT SHE DOESN’T EXIST, NO SHE DOESN’T EXIST, NO SHE DOESN’T EXIST.
