Track Name: every little thing
So I'll start worrying about it all 'cause every little thing's gonna go wrong. Every little thing. What have I done to deserve this? What have you done to the sounds and the sun? What do I do? I surrender.
Track Name: summer
I still feel the sand on my toes. My foolish words, your heart-shaped stones, sunscreen on my lips and your sleepy eyes. And then it all started to fall. It was just a summer, but it meant more. I still feel the sun on my skin. The love we were in, the mountain goat walk, sunscreen on my lips and your sleepy eyes. Was it the sun in our hair? Was it that hard rain that fell? Was it that picture you took? Was is the lust in that stare? Was it the dormouse upstairs? Was it that old blue book? I wish I could deduce it.
Track Name: you can tell me lies
Let yourself go. This is how you feel. Use all the words you know, change their meaning as they flow and then throw it all away. You can tell me lies, keep me entertained, but please don't lose me now. Summer arrives on the boulevards. Family cars stare back at us. They always stare back at us, but you can tell me lies. Let yourself go. Put it on my tab. This night will surely end. We're not supposed to understand, so throw it all away. You can tell me lies.
Track Name: crawl into the warmth
I never loved you more than that day, early in the morning. You said: 'I'm too old for this shit' and you were, but I don't know it at the time. I'm up, still working, and I let you wash your face and brush your teeth before I kiss you and then crawl into the warmth you've left in this squeaky bed. Six in the morning. The sun dawns. My bedtime. Six in the morning. Wakey wakey old girl. I wish I could be sober as a child on a Sunday morning, but I can't and I will deal with it. Tomorrow though and then maybe just a little. I've been yearning for a non-existent substance and I'll keep the fire burning, but it's time to dim the lights, I think. Crawl into the warmth.
Track Name: advice
I wish I had an older brother. I have friends, but that's different. Different mums and fathers. He'd share advice that would always be the wisest and I'd share my betting advice. I wish I had an older sister. I'd tell her just how much I've missed her. She'd give advice from her twisted point of view, my sister, but I'd still thank for the advice and god knows I need one now. I wish I had an older brother. I’d tell him just how much I love her. He'd share advice about these girls that rule our worlds, my brother, and then I'd ask for more advice. I wish I had an older sister. I have friends, but that's different. Different noses and wrists. She'd give advice that wouldn't always be the wisest, but I'd still thank for the advice and god knows I need one now.
Track Name: hug-off
I should go. I should put all my fears in a book, but I'll change all the words so that you can take a look. In my dreams we're alright. In my dreams it's all good. All the pain is yet to come. In my dreams I understood. When everything just falls apart, I still have my heart. When everything just goes away, I'll be there. When the fear kicks in, we'll laugh it off. We'll hug it off. When we crash into this mountain, I'll hold your hand. I should stay. I should put all my fears in a song, but I'll change all the chords so that you can't sing along. In my dreams still all fine. In my dreams we survive. All the bad's turned to good. In my dreams I understood. I should go.
Track Name: i'll ok it
I've met a girl that looks like you. She was nothing like you. I was trying not to stare, but it was too hard not to frown. I've met a girl that had your smile, but she didn't know what to do with it, so I turned my head around. It's not a writer's block, it's discarding every thought that could lead to love or to a pretty song, but I'm stronger than that. In that worst way. So I'll OK it. I've met a girl that looks like you. She was working in a supermarket. I had no idea what's going on. I've met a girl that had your eyes. They were nothing like yours. Not a tiny bit. So I turned my head around. It's not a cunning plan, it's folding every hand that could lead to love or to a pretty song, but I'm stronger than that. In that worst way. So I'll OK it. It's not a writer's block, it's ignoring every plot that could lead to love or to a pretty song, but I'm stronger than that. In that worst way. So I'll OK it.
Track Name: well
I remember sweet water from the well by the old road to the hill where we drank ‘til we kissed. Did we kiss? Or did we just hold hands, silent and grateful and calm, sitting straight on the top of the town, risking cool. The only thing we couldn't afford to lose. Not then. Not us. Well I remember sweet water from the well by the old road to the hill where we drank ‘til we kissed.
Track Name: the last tourist in town (acoustic)
I'm the last tourist in town. I know, you don't really like us, at all. We remind you of summer that's gone. I'm the last tourist in town; a flashback to some better times. I don't mean just seasonwise. We don't spend that much money and the prices already went down anyway. We don't smile that much. We're hiding somewhere out of town, reading Salinger. We're probably junkies, all junkies and queers. There must be a reason for coming so late. I'm the first tourist in town. I know, you don't really like us, at all. We remind you of summer that's coming. I'm the first tourist in town, but I'm going. I will be back in the autumn, when summer is gone. We don't spend that much money and the prices already went down anyway. We don't smile that much. We're hiding somewhere out of town, reading Salinger. We're probably junkies, all junkies and queers. There must be a reason for coming so early in the season, man. Don't you have a business, man? Don't you have a woman, man? Come back in the summertime, man. Oh it was ever so fun. I was cooking for one. I was drinking for two. I was trying for three. I was caring for none. I was talking with trees. It was ever so fun.
Track Name: brand new
I think it's time for us to stop trying to get along 'cause life is but a song and, when something goes wrong, other things usually follow, but tomorrow it stops. Tomorrow we'll all be brand new.
