Alive 04:17
Last night I put my head on your chest My ear just below your left breast So content I was to listen to your heart So content I was to listen to your heart The wheat in the fields looks like waves on the sea Like ocean waves the winter wind piles up the snow I want to know I want to know Can I speak to this heart to keep this person that I love alive Last night I put my head on your chest My ear just below your left breast So content I was to listen to your heart So content until the worry for you starts The greening of the ground The melting and the flowing of the water She soon turns beautiful colours of decay As though the heat of life forgot her Can I speak to this heart to keep this person that I love alive I want your heart and me alive

I get no heat from the sun I get no warmth from it's glow I get no heat from the sun You live with me so you know Skin touches your fingertips And you feel nothing at all My lips are touching your lips Your lips are trying to say I get no heat from the sun I get no heat from the sun You're the one I get that from I get no heat from the sun I get no heat from the sun I get no warmth from it's glow I get no heat from the sun You live with me so you know It's just the tilt of the earth When we're on top of the world Cold gets right into my veins I look at you and I say I get no heat from the sun I get no heat from the sun You're the one I get that from I get no heat from the sun

Love is crazy, love is cruel And baby it's your coldest glance that makes me cool as I see flowers that have bloomed And promptly frozen in the early months of May and June Is a beautiful time to fall in love And gracefully we fall into a hole That can never be filled to us Insatiable, I know summer love is bound to fall Is crazy, love is cruel And baby it's your coldest glance that makes me cool as I see flowers that have bloomed And promptly frozen in the early months of May and June Love is crazy, love is cruel And baby it's your coldest glance that makes me cool and Love is crazy, love is cruel And baby it's your coldest glance that makes me cool as

She looks up at the cracks in the ceiling Chasing a feeling that Freezing time, if she lies perfectly still No one will notice she's gone Full collapse on the bed in the corner One room apartment No one comes with a knock on the door To rescue this frozen girl But you know I will Every day is a waiting Every day is a waiting But you know I will We should go on a flight to the ocean What an escape it would be Full collapse on the bed in the corner You whisper we don't deserve that We look up at the cracks in the ceiling Chasing a feeling that Freezing time, if we keep lying here then No one will notice we're gone But you know I will Every day is a waiting Every day is a waiting game But you know I will

To Be Alone 03:38
She sits in this chair surrounded by the things that she holds dearest Nearest, it's too close to call Particular points appeal to her as sensible excuses Reclusive, she's nowhere at all I don't want to be any further than you've already pushed me away Can't be bothered to call anyone but you I'm not threatening to leave I'm promising to stay Pick up the phone Today is not a good day to be alone Echoes away fireworks flash plainly in the distance Persistent, like it's not a choice And seeing the light illuminates the source of this seclusion She's using and losing her voice I don't want to be any further than you've already pushed me away Can't be bothered to call anyone but you I'm not threatening to leave I'm promising to stay Pick up the phone Today is not a good day to be alone

Hey dear come look at what I picked for you Some tiny blue flowers then what did you do You threw them to the ground tell me now what should that say to me My love isn't perfect and yours is definitely not free So let the rain bring down the water and we'll see what grows Lovely how indifference comes up in rows How the roots go down and hold around the thoughts we don't know Let the rain bring down the water and we'll see what grows Someone once told me that love is a gift But sometimes love is a cancer and it kills what is left of itself Misunderstandings we planted like seeds Now to harvest the flowers we gotta pull out the weeds So let the rain bring down the water and we'll see what grows Lovely how indifference comes up in rows How the roots go down and hold around the thoughts we don't know So let the rain bring down the water and we'll see what grows My love isn't perfect and yours is definitely not free So let the rain bring down the water and we'll see what grows Lovely how indifference comes up in rows How the roots go down and hold around the thoughts we don't know Let the rain bring down the water and we'll see what grows

Dear John it's time to put my space suit on I feel the need to fly I once aspired to do everything she couldn't do How could I ever get that high As she walks on the dome of heaven As she walks on the edge And she talks without authorization As she walks on the edge I'm pleased to announce most all the walls are broken down I've seen it from the sky And when I look real hard while staring up in my backyard A wave hello and goodbye As she walks on the dome of heaven As she walks on the edge And she talks without authorization As she walks on the edge I wanted woman who could take my intensity I wanted a man who could race against me I wanted a woman who would grudgingly lose to me I wanted a woman who I thought I could dominate Let's not pretend he was right when she flies away Cause even now she walks on the dome of heaven As she walks on the edge And she talks without authorization As she walks on the edge

What if gone were the days When I tried to explain And the words like the wood Could hold the stain I've thought it through Confession is the simple truth I despise myself Because I hate your friends I go round and round And my mind pretends We pollute the air With our empty talk But with your love for me I can walk that walk I've thought it through Confession is the simple truth I'm telling you Confession is the simple truth The verdict's in I'm not right for you I can live with that If you want me to I can come terms In my music club That our love's song gets played By just the two of us I've thought it through Confession is the simple truth I'm telling you Confession is the simple truth

Staircase 03:54
Oh you scramble up the staircase ever racing to the top Just to find when you arrive there it's just a drop and Down you go, down you fall Holding to the self opinion You were never who you thought you were You were never who you believed yourself to be And You were never in the race you ran so hard to win And you were never who you thought you were I am questioning and challenging the presence of your mind As you grip onto the banister and stepping out you find that Down you go, down you fall Holding to your poor self image Cause you were never who you thought you were And you were never who you believed yourself to be You were never in the race you ran so hard to win And you were never who you thought you were In the singing of these thoughts There's enough to make me cry In the singing of theses thoughts There's a hole as deep as a well In the darkness of these thoughts I know there's water down there somewhere And if I look into that water I will see I was never who I thought I was Masterminding my undoing I'm the only one to blame Cause the more I love these stairs I climb the deeper goes my shame As down I go, down I fall Holding to my poor self image Wanting more than I deserve To win this little game of scrimmage Someone tap me on the shoulder Tell me that this game is over Cause you were never who you thought you were You were never who you believed yourself to be And you were never in the race you ran so hard to win And you were never who you thought you were

Tragedy has always been my spark Just a way to stay scared of the dark National guitar in my hands I'm searching for the words of a bitter man Tragedy approaches I assume Cause she's listening to me from the back of the room Try to figure out just what I've done I'm needing an excuse and I don't have one And she says Stop singing these sad songs Cause they incline me to believe that somethings wrong I've never given a thought to moving on But it's these sad songs or me I've never held a gun And I've never threatened anyone I don't cheat you, you don't cheat me What is it your words would have me be She says Stop singing these sad songs Cause they incline me to believe that somethings wrong I've never given a thought to moving on But it's these sad songs or me Is this the last thing that I write Will I see you come home tonight A sad song to call my own I guess I'm happy enough to be alone And she says Stop singing these sad songs Cause they incline me to believe that somethings wrong I've never given a thought to moving on I guess it's these sad songs

Like gulls to garbage That's what our love is We are water and sand Inevitable combination We are lovers who should know better So pull the trigger Go ahead, subject me To the car-crash romance Criminal association We are lovers who should know better But no Sensation, a morbid fascination It's everything you do Combustion, a fire burning hotter I can't put it out, neither can you Like flies to the porch light We don't feel nothing We are deer in the headlights Our love is violent and We really should know better You hear my car pull Silent into the driveway So kill the desk light Climb out through the window We are lovers who should know better But no Sensation, a morbid fascination It's everything you do Combustion, a fire burning hotter I can't put it out, neither can you

Confidence 04:30
If you're thinking of calling me out You'd best go all the way If you're thinking of calling me out You'd better go all the way Don't push that button unless you know what it does

Mechanics 03:16
I met you in the summer it was 1995 I was fixed on you like a premonition that was coming to life You met me in the summer of 1996 How did you see the blip on the horizon that was my heart becoming fixed O the mechanics of our love It's getting pretty cold and she's the one with a nose for trouble On the shoulder of the yellowhead looking like the motor had stalled It's amazing how a kiss can fill the space between waking and dreaming That was the very last thought of my own that I can recall O the mechanics of our love Inevitable probability can bring us together And Deus ex Machina is the only part I already know O the mechanics of our love
