Lazy Lightning 
Lyrics: John Barlow
Music: Bob Weir

Lazy lightning
That sleepy fire in your eyes
Is that desire in disguise
I keep on trying but I
I can't get through

Lazy lightning
I'd like to find the proper potion
To try to capture your emotion
[Alternative: To kind of capture your emotion]
You're right beside me but I
I can't get through

You're a loop of lazy lightning
Just a loop of lazy lighting
Must admit you're kind of frightening
But you really get me high

So exciting
When I hear your velvet thunder
You seem so near I start to wonder
Would you come closer if I
If I asked you to

So exciting
[Alternative: So inviting]
The way you're messing with my reason
It's an obsession but it's pleasing
Tell me a lie and I will swear
I will swear it's true

You're a loop of lazy lightning
Liquid loop of lazy lightning
Must admit you're kind of frightening
You're a loop of lazy lightning

Rope of fire round my heart (lightning)
Rope of fire ever tightening
Rope of fire round my heart (tightening)
[Alternative: It's either lunacy or lightning]
Come on come on lazy lightning

You're a loop of lazy lightning

Lazy lightning
You say you never start the same place
I want a double dose in any case
I'd fly a kite if I thought
Thought that would do

Here's to lightning
Well you always electrify me
Someday I know you'll satisfy me
And all that lightning will be
My lightning too

Loop of lazy lightning
(My lightning too)


Supplication 
Lyrics: John Barlow

Well dizzy ain't the word for the way that you making me feel now
Well I need some indication Lord that all of this is real now
You got to tell me girl
And I've heard it said there's something wrong with my head now
You got to help me girl
Could it be infatuation or am I just being misled
Little bolt of inspiration
The way you strike me now
It's sparking my imagination
You got to like me now
You're causing me such excitation
Don't you like it now
You got to hear my supplication
Got to hear me now
A little bolt of inspiration
The way you strike me now
It's sparking my imagination
