Lover's Day 04:58
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

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.

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?

Marilyn 04:25
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.

Dancing Liar 03:18
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

Forgetful 04:03
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.

Radio Music 06:32
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
