Track Name: THE END
how long will you be ?
i've got someone to be (maybe)

for a while, i'll just do what i can
in the place that i'm in
but that's not what i am,
or for me to understand.
Track Name: COMING AROUND
why do i always put such a negative spin on things / i don't know what the answer is / i think of all the people living a personal nightmare / and i don't know how they handle it / baby i'm lost in a world of thought again / and i don't know if i can find an easy way out / but there's only one way down from here

there are two kinds of pain, there's misery and there's suffering / and i don't know which one i want to pick / sunrise sunset, forgive forget, instantly / i don't know how that sounds to me / i get so down when i see all this bad shit happening / right in front of me - i can't stand to see / but there's only one way down from here

late again, i'm coming around / and here i am, just running around / i shouldn't be feeling this down / but i admit, i'm coming around
Track Name: BISCUITS
maybe i'm not alone in the feeling, maybe you feel it too / lately it's all i want, just to feel the way that you say you do / you're there, i'm here, that's something that we'll have to get used to. / maybe don't stress just yet when everything's all up in the air / i don't mind waiting if you don't mind figuring out what i'm saying / lately i've been feeling angry and i don't even know why / so many feelings that you just lose track and you lose sight of what we're doing here and everything that makes me miss you.

when sometimes i think too much / it gets too much / and that's when i mess up. / but when i look at you / it's not that hard a choice / but you're there, i'm here, that much is clear / how far? how near? that's something that i'll have to look into.

yknow, i think there's something in the distance there
that i know will make more sense
when i look at you
Track Name: OVER BEFORE IT BEGINS
i can see it's over
it's over before it begins

but i won't let that stop me, no / i won't let go so fast / i just want you to feel my love and i want it to last
(i <3 you. i'll see you soon baby.)

i got nothing to prove / i just wanna be with you. / and don't it seem so cruel / that it should end before it begins

now i know what it's like baby / i've got an idea / when you don't even recognise these people anymore / i just want you to feel my love and what to use it for. (it's so nice.)

and now it's over
Track Name: FLYING ALL NITE
flying all nite
Track Name: SUBURBAN RESTAURANT
have you walked down Blackwood St. at night? / it's actually alright / everyone's gone home to feed their kids / and don't they grow up quick

no one walks their dogs round here no more / they've all moved further north / and those little things that make you feel so sad / the memories that don't last / like afternoons spent drawing in your room / or walking on the moon / they're all ending so soon / and Monday, back to school

everyone i know is growing up in some kind of rush / good for them, but i don't think i'm done being young + dumb / sitting in that restaurant on my own

i can feel my patience running low with everyone i know
but that don't mean i have to let it show, you've gotta let it go
and when i move on, i just hope they know that they're not alone

why do i always miss this train / i guess i'll just wait.
and i can feel the winter coming on / though it's not as strong anymore
Track Name: ROAMIN'
roamin', always goin' someplace hoping your hopes away and dreaming of better days / roamin', always goin' someplace hoping when you go away you'll remember my face

yeeehhhh / you think that's all you've got, but it's not. there's a whole lot more / and yeeehhh / you've got it going on but you're lost

knowing seeing's believing is feeling / breathing on my face and sleeping for half the day / roamin' around like a fucking clown, wearing a sad face and going about my day. / go when you feel, don't wait for a better deal / do what you want. you gave me no choice / do what you want, you leave me with no choice / do what you want, baby.

roamin i'm fine, roamin i'm fine / pretending i'm fine
roamin i'm fine / staying alive / quarter-to-five / believe me i'm fine
believe me i'm fine / pretending i'm fine

roamin around, goin nowhere fancy, it's all up to me / roamin, always busy nowadays, too much space of my own / too much space of my own / too much space to call my own
Track Name: THAT FUCKING GUY
do you want to know me better / cos believe me baby, i do too / do you want to wear my sweater / spend a day walkin in my shoes

you can't rely on that fucking guy

yknow she gives you everything / everything and so much more / yknow no one asked for a wedding ring / no one asked for a bitter divorce / no one asked me what i thought

not even that fucking guy
cos you can't rely on that fucking guy

(don't you know you can't (rely on that fucking guy))
(i will do better / i will try harder)
Track Name: LES PUCES
every day i need you / every day i want to feel like i know / but i can't and i won't - ok then oh well yeah here goes / a little book of pictures, saying all these words that i don't know / = €20.

every day i feel it / more than i ever did / every day i want to pack up and go / put my shoes on, and walk right out the door

i was at the market / hands stuck in my pockets / fishing around for change i knew wasn't there / i've been feeling restless / also i've been sexless / she helps me to be my best / well man, just go and get her. no one's stopping you.
Track Name: THE MAIN THING
maybe it's not what you wanted / maybe it's not what you need / maybe i'm pulling you under and not letting you breathe / some people prefer the winter / some people prefer it then / feeling the chill on your skin just cover it with warmth again / and that's when you know you've got a ways to go.

and then, i tell myself / everything else is unnecessary / love's the main thing. and that's the main thing

peace - i give to you / i'm serious too / i'm not even joking / that's my goal here, if it wasn't clear / and yes, i am alive / i can survive / i just need practise / at the art of real, endless love / so get in front / make sure they know what you want / cos that's all they've got to go on / yeah that's all they've got to go on / (don't stress) just wait it out, don't wear yourself out / it's just not that worth it in the end

maybe it's not what you wanted / maybe it's not what you need / but here it is:

no one wants to get old / but that's what we've all been sold / tell me something i don't know / tell me something you don't want anyone to know / and no one wants to be told / but babies are gonna get old / but that's not what i've been told / and where do the good times go? / when they're gone and you're on your own? / where do all the people go? / they get in front / they laugh and they cry and then some / and that's the main thing / that i'm saying / that i'm weak without your love / the sky above / will crash right down on me / love's the main thing / and i am changing every day. / i want you here / oh, my dear / so much is happening, and i am freaking out / tell me about your day / in every word and every way / what do you have to say? / let me just look at your face / let me imagine your embrace / it's a beautiful kind of pain. / but i know we'll work it out / without a doubt / we've just got to wait a while / we've just got to wait a while.
