Track Name: Lover's Day
I'll be swimming in the lonely water
I'll be dancing with the king of kings
I could be with a hundred others
But I'm waiting for you
Waiting on you

On lover's day when we went away last summer
On lover's day when we thought we knew one another
On lover's day

Well it was very hot and sticky
So you decided to take off my dress
Well like ruffians we rumbled, we got caught up in the tumble
When you ripped my sleeve it was a bad sign

On lover's day when we went away last summer
On lover's day when we thought we knew one another
On lover's day

I've been living in this far away land
in a portal of time and space
They've got a holiday that goes by the same name now you know
couples haunt me on the hill
Oh you haunt me still

On lover's day
On lover's day when we went away last summer
Oh I'm still haunted on the hill
On lover's day I think about you still

Well every month or so I drive from place where I grew up
To the place I fell in love with the girl who loves me best
And the whole time I'm just shouting out the window
Fuckin up the words to every single song
And thinking about holding you again

On lover's day this summer we'll be civil we'll be kind
I will keep your clothes in tact, I'll try my hardest not to mind
how irresistible you look swimming through that summer rain
On lover's day I'll hold you in refrain
Track Name: Teach Me How to Move
Long summer hair with the windows down

We were bathing in the water of the beauty we had found

She was a queen but I was a clown

Everything ended like a bullet to a crown



I found a fountain in the hills of New York

And I washed my hands of the blood that we poured

I found a lover who was hiding in the sand

She took me by the arm yeah she took me by the hand



And she took me down to where the young souls war

Behind the parking lot of the pizza store

And I held her to my heart and I told her what I thought

Baby, I know you got it



So come on up, my darling

I’ve been waiting for you here

A little ray of sunlight will make our scratches disappear
If you wanna dance, I can bring a pair of shoes

Wrap me in your arms and teach me how to move



Well, me and my baby we been on the run ever since

Searching for paradise in folded up tents 

She says that I don’t like talking in the future tense,

But my mind’s always filling up with plans.



But lately I’ve noticed a distance

A distance between you and me
I’m not sure how wide it really is
But I’m fearing, I’m fearing



Now the spring is upon us 
and our backs are to the state
These chains will untangle us in strange ways
Everybody’s leaving for some foreign coast,

But me and my baby we gonna take it slow



So come on up, my darling

I’ve been waiting for you here

A little ray of sunlight will make our scratches disappear

I know a place where all the lonely pilgrims go

I know you’re scared but if we don’t try you’ll never know



Pack the car in the middle of the night

Leave the apartment for the last time

Drive down state to where the empire lies

Drive across that river into the dark, into the fire



Well after tonight our bodies will be free

Nothing left behind us but what we choose to see

And I can feel it running like a current underneath

I don’t know much but I know one thing:



Happiness and good times are coming.

Track Name: Memories of Sleep
Memories of sleep how they haunt me all the time
Things that don't really matter consuming my mind
You don't need to hold your breath
Keep on blowing smoke from that same cigarette
You don't need to think cause for once it's automatic

Like that time that you said "hello"
You were talking in your monotone
I could feel the beat move through my bones
Caught up in the visceral

Memories of sleep how they haunt my reverie
things that don't really matter much at all to me
You don't need to apologize for taking your time
Keep on giving reason to my rhyme
You don't need to think cause for once it's automatic

Like that time that you said hello
I kinda feel like losing control
And now can you see my soul
and what lies below?
Track Name: Marilyn
Well we went swimming in the water

Then we went driving in our wet clothes

You had a towel wrapped around your waist

And I was dreaming how to let go



You took me up so high

And then you taught me how to get down

We hit that water with a splash

Then we went swimming from the waist down



Now, baby I know

That there are reasons you say that love don’t exist

But baby you know

All you gotta do is turn around and give me a kiss



And you call me closer, Marilyn

Pluck my feathers one by one

I’ll be your friend, Marilyn

But we were struck by a lover who went and married another

Well hey, I wanna say to you today-



How many days have left us broken?

Still we rejoice in things unspoken

I’ve got a lot of things on my mind

Let’s just relax into the ocean.



Well, we were sitting on the edge
Of 2nd Dam in the summer heat
All we needed was one slip

And all that love we dreamed of would never ever be



But you call me closer, Marilyn

We make love that’s never been

I owe it all to Marilyn

You keep me warm in the winter time
I touched your heart but you smoldered mine

Bitter like some cheap red wine
;
Sweet like drunken pumpkin pie

Well hey, I just wanna take you away



How many days have left us broken?

Still we rejoice in things unspoken

I’ve got a lot of things on my mind

Let’s just relax into the ocean.
Track Name: Dancing Liar
Ask for all the pictures in my brain
I can't control the way they start to fade
You don't need to hold me now I'm gone on holiday
Feeling swirls of coffee running midnight through my veins
After all this time I can learn to set you free
You don't need to be a part of me

You say I'm a liar but I wanna dance
Dancing in the sweet romance
And I'm sorry I don't know
Yeah I'm sorry to let you go

Now you've gone and found another home
But I've still got no one to call my own
You don't need to hold me now I've gone on holiday
Feeling swirls of coffee running midnight through my veins
After all this time I can learn to set you free
You don't need to be a part of me

You say I'm a liar but I wanna dance
Dancing in the sweet romance
And I'm sorry I don't know
Yeah I'm sorry to let you go
Track Name: Forgetful
I miss my car, I miss my wife

I send letters in my mind

I’m not well but I’m alright

and I’m getting better all the time

But if you stare into my eyes

and you see a blinding light



I’m forgetful

And I apologize if I treated you unwisely

I won’t sit and waste your time

You already know everything I am



We’ve got means but there’s no end

Liquid fights in front of friends

We’ve forgotten how to speak in front of quiet company

Taking solace in our sleep

On the hunt for the navel of the dream



I just wanna feel better

I just wanna feel sober and complete

We’ve been living this whole time

You were always on my side



Oh I feel you in my bones

I taste you in the coffee in the morning

When I wake up alone I hear your voice and see your eyelids

Oh but you push me away

Then you pull me in

I love the waves

We’re dancing.



Oh but I will never understand 

No I will never understand

Why you are so good to me.

Track Name: Radio Music
Five hours to the city
If we drive fast I think we'll make it
Some time around 1 or 2 am
I've got a bottle of gin and some cigarettes
You can share if you forget yours
I know how sometimes you forget things

I've got the engine running downstairs
So bring a change of clothes and lock the door

I thought that I was in love once,
Now I know I was just bored and tame
But I feel older now on the highway
I'll die young, but I won't die unchanged
Sometimes I get nervous in the rain

So play that radio music
I hope they play our favorite song
You can't dance to other music
'Cause its all just too damn long
Now play that radio music

Friday night in the city
Far above the things we know
32nd floor and money to blow
Let's make a lot of coffee
Let's drink it really fast
I don't want to sleep at all without you

'Cause I've got plans inside my head
and I've got a burning in my chest
and I've been dreaming way too long
Now darling, tell me you know the rest

Let's turn the lights down low
I wanna see your soul
and I know how to make you smile if I try
What if all I need is you
My blue eyed baby?
Just hold me close and rock me slow

And play that radio music
I hope they play our favorite song
You know the way that you're moving
It really turns me on
You know I've never ever been to California
I've never dreamed about L.A.
Just give me midnight New York City
and I'll know I'm on my way
Play that radio music all night long
