Track Name: Hesitations and Cliches
we made a good run until we lost it
you know our hearts are ripped apart
they ripped apart at that seams
apart at the seams
thought i could bend you till you broke
eating words until i choke
and now i’m back on the scene
yes i’m back on the scene
when you say “too little too late”
but the hesitations and cliches you away
won’t you give me away
now its ten weeks since the first verse
and my calls have gone from bad
you know from bad into worse
for better or worse
and now you’ve found somebody new
and said you’re happier there too
but baby but i don’t believe you
i don’t believe you
when you say “too little too late”
but the hesitations and the clichés give you away
you can’t give me away
this grief is just the price of love we pay
and i still pay
till you say “too little too late”
but the hesitations and the clichés give you away
you can’t give me away
this grief is just the price of love we pay
don’t give me away
you can’t give me away
i’m not listening unless you tell me i should stay
you can’t give me away
this grief is just the price of love we pay
and i still pay
Track Name: In the Coat Check
reaching out everyday ▪ we fall a little bit farther little bit harder ▪ can’t find the words to say ▪ so i suggest with my eyes ▪ that you meet me in the coat check baby ▪ kiss like you’re not surprised ▪ your eyes ▪ because i’m out of lines for making time to get myself inside your mind ▪ and you’re mine ▪ because three more drinks, two more songs, one cab fare and then we’re gone ▪ well hold on until we’re gone ▪ won’t be long until we ▪ let go ▪ no ▪ it just ain’t worth holding on ▪ and we say today ▪ today it’s all gonna change ▪ kiss like you’re not surprised ▪ in my eyes i see your pushing hips and open fists suggest you wanted more than this ▪ and now, now we’re out until the smell of hair, the sight of dawn, a taste of you and then we’re gone ▪ well hold on until we’re gone ▪ won’t be long until we ▪ let go ▪ no ▪ it just ain’t worth holding on ▪ and we say today ▪ today it’s all gonna change ▪ and no it’s not gonna change ▪ we’re not gonna change ▪ we’re not gonna change ▪ and no we’ll not stay the same ▪ we’ll not stay the same ▪ we’ll not stay the same
Track Name: Warm Body Syndrome
“get up!” she said
“you can’t spend all day just lying in bed!”
but the shivers in my spine
have got me paralyzed here with that girl on my mind

and the cold wars
she’s got the warm body syndrome
and all we got to lose is more
oh lord

she’s in love so she says
but i don’t see her dance no more she just stays home instead
and she smiles while she cries
she wonders “is love a lonely feeling i, i feel deep inside?”

and the cold wars
she’s got the warm body syndrome
and all we got to lose is more
oh lord

“get up!” she said
“you can’t spend all day just lying in bed!”
but the shivers in my spine
have got me paralyzed here with that girl on my mind

she’s in love so she says
but i don’t see her dance no more she just stays home instead
and she smiles while she cries
she wonders “is love a lonely feeling i, i feel deep inside?”

and the cold wars
she’s got the warm body syndrome
and all we got to lose is more
oh lord
Track Name: All We Ever Had
she came around this town and lordy she held my hand ▪ the back of her palms were sweaty, i could barely stand ▪ and everyone around bringing us down they can all go to hell for all i care ▪ or maybe we will…maybe that’s fair, said maybe that’s fair ▪ she said maybe that’s fair ▪ but girl, you and i we could take this thing anywhere ▪ and you ain’t ever gotta be scared ▪ and we can take this anywhere ▪ and baby you ain’t gotta be scared anymore ▪ cause i found that open, found that open door ▪ we were living on the sound ▪ we we’re flying miles from the ground ▪ holdin’ to the plan ▪ we were given all we ever had ▪ all we ever had ▪ its six a.m. and your head finds way into my hands ▪ as we lay in the backseat of my three door sedan ▪ cause every little frown in these little old towns just brings back to a time when i was trapped ▪ but now you’re here and i won’t look back ▪ and baby i won’t ever lose track ▪ maybe we could see it through ▪ and baby you ain’t gotta prove what you do for me now ▪ cause i love you more than life ▪ and there ▪ and you ain’t ever gotta be scared ▪ and we can take this anywhere ▪ and baby you ain’t gotta be scared anymore ▪ cause i found that open, found that open door
Track Name: All We Would Lose
i’ve been waiting for that day ▪ when i could hold my head on straight ▪ and like the river in this town ▪ i would shepherd you in and let you float out ▪ if you wanted to ▪ i’d carry you ▪ i’ve been waiting for the hour ▪ when we speak in tongues of fire ▪ though i know we’d not comprehend ▪ i am certain i’d hear every sound and word that you said ▪ it’s true ▪ i listen for you ▪ yes i swear it’s true ▪ i listen for you ▪ and i’ve been holding for that day ▪ when the devil comes calling my name ▪ but before he takes his dues ▪ i will tell him the story of me and of you ▪ and all that we had and all we would lose ▪ yes of all we had and all we would lose
Track Name: After All
Last call
Not leaving
The side alley’s full of dregs and pissing
8 bucks a drink, you must be kidding
What was her name? I wasn’t listening
Now the spirit’s dead
But we’re up till five
Taking swings at each other just to feel alive
Under moonlight lit by neon sings
My mind retreats to a better time
Back to the places where we grew up all those years
Can’t let ‘em go, or let you disappear into my modern fears
And street signs calling out your name into the night
Remember days when I woke up just to fight, just to feel your light
Flat broke
But I’m still walking
Feet to the gravel, I ain’t stopping…
I left my friends, threw my phone in the parking…
Lots of things to say, but I ain’t talking now
Now we make up a circus just to kill some time
And time again we run in circles just until we find
That line I draw to redefine myself
But you’re constantly on my mind
Back to the places where we grew up all those years
Can’t let ‘em go, or let you disappear into my modern fears
And street signs calling out your name into the night
Remember days when I woke up just to fight, just to feel your light
And we never knew exactly where we’d land
I hope you know how sorry I am
Yes, I am
Cause I’m listening
Yes I’m listening
Back to the places where we grew up all those years
Can’t let ‘em go, or let you disappear into my modern fears
And street signs calling out your name into the night
Remember days when I woke up just to fight, just to feel your light
And we never knew exactly where we’d land
I hope you know how sorry I am
Yes, I am
And we never knew how far it was we’d fall
I need you here now after all
Yes, after all these years
Track Name: Marjorie
everybody’s fingers up ▪ charlie just filled up my cup, hi-ya hi-ya ▪ and the gramophone’s been working fine ▪ takes us through our five to nines, hi-ya ▪ i catch your eyes across the room, and suddenly this room’s in bloom, hi-ya hi-ya ▪ so i mark you there next to the stairs, straight my stache and fix my hair, hi-ya ▪ then it’s crack crack crack on the beat of the drums ▪ and the band fires up, and the path to you is undone ▪ then it’s back back back to the back of the room ▪ and the girls are swinging, and the boys are shaking it too ▪ but now everyone’s one in love ▪ and they pretend as they dance to be in love ▪ but not me ▪ i see ▪ i’m in lust with marjorie ▪ and from across the speakeasy ▪ yes there’s no love ▪ i found you on the parquet floor ▪ pulled you close and went for more, hi-ya hi-ya ▪ and i spun you in that flapper dress ▪ you blast right through dead cigarettes, hi-ya ▪ but then it’s tap tap tap on the pat on my back ▪ and your man’s right behind me and he’s quick with a crack oh no ▪ so i pull to the left and he swings with the right ▪ he connects on the jaw and the place it comes to life ▪ but now everyone’s one in love ▪ and they pretend as they dance to be in love ▪ but not me ▪ i see ▪ i’m in lust with marjorie ▪ and from across the speakeasy ▪ yes there’s no love ▪ and there is no love (baby there’s no love) ▪ there is no love (baby there’s no love) ▪ and there is no love (baby there’s no love) ▪ there is no love (baby there’s no love) ▪ and there is no love for me ▪ i’m in lust with marjorie ▪ and from across the speakeasy ▪ yes there’s no love
Track Name: Stereo
o’ the rain ▪ falling down ▪ doesn’t make ▪ too much sound ▪ and you know it’s drowned out by the radio in my car ▪ ain’t got work ▪ ain’t got pay ▪ no direction and that’s okay ▪ i’ve got a memory of your laugh inside my heart ▪ but the songs of the road ▪ thinking thoughts that split like stereo ▪ and the rain ▪ coming down ▪ like the pain, this is hurt is how we grow ▪ and the war ▪ raging on ▪ in my head ▪ till the day i’m finally dead ▪ looking back at the miles that we tread ▪ but the songs of the road ▪ thinking thoughts that split like stereo ▪ and the rain ▪ coming down ▪ like the pain, this is hurt is how we grow ▪ the suffering is how we grow
Track Name: Dragonflies
love it seems a traffic light red to green
and the timing, collision, and the wreck is serene
we meet the intersection in between
in our twenties but we’re driving uninsured
smoke screens
with low visibility fleeting volatility in tune

and now
we pray
just to take it day by day by day by day

and all the boys say
na na, na na na na
na na, na na na na
na na na na na oh no

and everybody out there’s gotta get somewhere
gotta get away from anywhere but here
everything that i can’t see but no matter where you flee

i’ll run to you
and you know like dragonflies together we did ride just until we’re through

tonight we pass heart is growing colder
and suddenly we’re older
with all this hanging over

our heads instead words don’t do justice
there’s love but then there’s lust
and we’re sleeping out in other people’s beds

do you think of me like i think of you?
you know its sick but its still true
Track Name: On the Line
i wrote to your father ▪ the hand of his daughter ▪ requested on the line, just to keep it on the line ▪ he said well she’s leaving ▪ but i can’t believe him ▪ on the line, just to keep it on the line ▪ keep it on the line ▪ just to make you mine ▪ cause i cannot let you go ▪ whatever they may say ▪ no matter what you do ▪ sent your mother a letter ▪ said her daughter could do better without me ▪ on the line just to keep it on the line ▪ but i don’t care if that’s true ▪ and my fingers they called you ▪ on the line just to keep you on my line ▪ keep me on your line ▪ just to make you mine ▪ cause i cannot let you go ▪ whatever they may say ▪ no matter what you do ▪ wherever we may fall ▪ i can’t give it all away ▪ it’s breaking me to stay ▪ helpless like i was yesterday ▪ and the day before but anyway ▪ now i hope that you don’t mind ▪ my pride has vaporized ▪ so i keep calling just to keep myself from falling off your line ▪ just to make you mine ▪ cause i cannot let you go ▪ whatever they may say ▪ no matter what you do ▪ wherever we may fall, we fall ▪ i crawl, i crawl, i crawl back to you ▪ back to you
Track Name: Disappear
From the West to the East
Yeah we’ll raise our hands up in disbelief
At the world
That we see
Well I think we’re all in need of just a little relief
Still we take in the air
And you watch as the world you thought you knew disappears
One by one yeah we rise and we fall
Going round on the circle that bridges us all
To the love and the hate
Yeah the wicked and the true
Us to them, he to she, I to me,
And yes and me to you
In the air
And you watch as the person you thought you were disappears
Still we take in the air
And you watch as the boy you thought you knew disappears
