Track Name: on lust
you come over with your winning smile
you speak in words i know
i don’t even try to fight it

your hands look good when you’re walking
your hands look good when you’re dancing
your hands are good for touching

i know what they say about you
and i know a thing or two about lust
we’re both so far away from home

it’s all but echoes in my head
the beat, the lights, the people there
i don’t even try to focus

i let go because i can
i let go because i want to
i let go because it’s you

i know what they say about you
and i know a thing or two about lust
we’re both so far away from home
Track Name: dream of you
i can’t only be in love with you
during my lonely hours
i can’t go without thinking of you
for days on end

and then tremble when
i talk to you
wonder what
you think of me
be sure that i’m
in lust with you

and dream of you
dream of you
Track Name: the right boulevards
I don’t know but I have been told
There are people you can look up in the right boulevards
In their dingy offices
They’ll take care of you
They’ll patch you up, they’ll keep you all from
Crying

In their dingy offices
Cluttered with paper stacks
And artifacts to keep you all from
Crying
Track Name: to disappear
intentions are hanging in the air
so are the feelings
but words can’t seem to find their way out of your mouth
we sit in silence

and this is leading us nowhere
there’s no way to go from here
and although i’m trying hard
you still want to disappear

it’s always seemed like a waste of time to talk
and now we seem to have forgotten how it’s done
as we stare at everything but each other
so very quietly

and this is leading us nowhere
there’s no way to go from here
and although i’m trying hard
you still want to disappear
Track Name: if you choose to run
don’t want to scare you but it has begun
few hours left before the morning sun

it’s about to come

there’s nothing wrong with wanting to go on
no one’s going to blame you if you choose to run

it’s about to come
Track Name: hard
get your thoughts in order
write your mum a letter
in the softest paper
lick strawberry glue

you believe it hard
just ‘cause it’s hard
It doesn’t make it true

you say it hard
just ‘cause it’s hard
It doesn’t mean it’s true

it’s come rain or sunshine
it’s for pride and bloodline
it’s forever after
write your mum a letter
Track Name: search skin deep
finally i understand
what it’s like not to hold your hand
finally i know how it feels

heartbreak of mine won’t you leave me behind
won’t you let me go on with my life?

i will have to search skin deep
for the shallow life i seek

maybe it will take someone
without a trace of innocence
maybe it will just take a moment

heartbreak of mine won’t you leave me behind
won’t you let me go on with my life?

i will have to search skin deep
for the shallow life i seek
Track Name: large amounts
give it up for those who have the guts
to hurt who they love
when they really have to

those who have the guts to love themselves
above all the rest
when they really must

there isn’t much i wouldn’t do for you
but don’t ask me to
stick around forever

there isn’t much i wouldn’t do for you
so don’t ask me to
stick around forever

large amounts
of fun and songs
but you still go hungry
you can still go hungry
Track Name: the booze
came to know you one night at a bar
one beer, two beers, three beers
you’re telling me the story of your life
and i don’t really want to hear it
i have only just met you

as the booze sinks in
the air becomes unbearable
as the booze sinks in
the air becomes unbearable
in here

came to hate you that night at the bar
four beers, five beers, six beers
i can’t stand it anymore
so i left early that night and you stayed
drinking your lonely glass
as i walked away

once the booze sunk in
the air became unbearable
once the booze sunk in
the air became unbearable
in there
Track Name: a song to celebrate our love
took my guitar and i wrote for you
don’t think i could do much better than this
you asked me for it and so here it is
(oh, come on, please)
a song to celebrate our love

love…

maybe you never would have had the guts
if i hadn’t been the one to move first
but i’m so happy that i took the plunge
now we can celebrate our love

love…
