Track Name: What Can I Say?
What can I say? We were never that close.
What can I say? We share blood and the family ghost.
I guess you could say I’m more afraid of what’s left when you’re gone.
But what can I say? I’m usually wrong.

Then you wake up and everything’s changed,
like the first day of summer but it’s raining.
Then you wake up and everything’s changed.

I can’t remember your face in my mind,
cause it’s already been erased over time,
cause it’s our master, we’re all slaves anyway,
so I don’t know what to say.
What can I say? Death is an old man.
Reaching out with withered old hands,
to choke those little babes, lying awake inside of their cribs.
But what can I say? They probably deserved it.

Then you wake up and everything’s changed,
like the first day of summer but it’s raining.
Then you wake up and everything’s changed.

I keep trying, I keep trying, I keep trying, I keep trying.

The devil put his hands in my mouth to pull out my tongue and teeth,
nothing but this silver spoon to dig myself out from this shallow grave I’m underneath.
I won’t worry about those songs that I’ll never sing,
cause they’re all lies that I can’t take back anyway
and my soul is black, like it’s burning on hell’s stove, burning through my bones.
Track Name: Arms Again
Here I am, praying at your altar.
A goddess of broken hearts and emotional slaughter.
So pick me off the floor and put me in your arms again,
next to the jagged pieces of my heart you were trying to mend.
Pick me off the floor and put me in your arms again,
next to the broken boys that you call your friends.

I know that you’re not right for me, cause I was so lonely.
My heart, my heart was lying.

Pick me up off the floor, put me in your arms again.

I know, you’re not telling.
Your story, it ain’t compelling.
I’m resistance to your preoccupation,
a white blood cell to this invasion.
I never thought that I could make you sad,
but deep down you know I’m kind of glad,
to know your heart would bleed like the rest.
To know my heart would have its revenge.

I know that you’re not right for me, cause I was so lonely.
My heart, my heart was lying.
Pick me up off the floor
(put me in your arms again).
Pick me up off the floor
(put me in your arms again).

Wrap me in your arms like a spider.

I know that you’re not right for me, cause I was so lonely.
My heart, my heart was lying.

My heart
(my heart)
My heart was lying.
So here I am, here I am…
Track Name: Only Tonight
Darling I see our home,
Fading away, rolling behind hills
and I know, and I know…
You’ve got a million reasons to stay
and I stole you from his arms
and you say our hearts beat to the same drum
so forget him and we did

Now my car is maxing out of speed,
you say our hearts are all we’ll need
and I disconnect my heart from my head

What if we’ve only got tonight?
Oh yeah.

I count our blessings on your fingers and toes,
and I count the freckles on your face and nose,
and I can’t believe anyone would treat you like that.
So I say “let’s give them hell and never come back”

I’ll admit in time, that I’ve fallen in love with you once or twice,
I’ve been a sinner all my life,
but tonight I’m praying that you don’t change your mind.

What if we’ve only got tonight?
Oh yeah.

and in the morning I will run, to the golden sun,
exposing all the wrongs that I’ve done.
As I get older, I’ll get so much colder.

What if we’ve only got tonight?
Oh yeah.

You can’t turn your back on love, but we both know this could never be enough,
so let’s save tonight.
Track Name: Ashley
Girl, I think about you all the time.
I think about you in the morning, oh I think about you at night.
What are you doing, what’s your story?
You used to hang around at work.
You always looked so gorgeous and your boyfriend wasn’t a jerk.

So set the stage, our director is coming out today.
Light the lights, know your lines, it’s going to be okay.

Ashley, I could be the boy you want.
I know I’ve known you long enough.
So come on, come on, come on, come on, come on…
Ashley, I could be the boy you need.
I’m that boy you love to tease.
So come and lie here next to me.

I saw you in the tea leaves, from the psychic that I used to go and see.
She said you need a love you’re never gonna leave and that’s when I found you.
I know I should be stronger than this, but I tried and I must insist to persist.
That you are, the coolest girl that I know.
So set the stage, our director is coming out today.
Light the lights, know your lines, it’s going to be okay.
Ashley, I could be the boy you want.
I know I’ve known you long enough.
So come on, come on, come on, come on, come on…
Ashley, I could be the boy you need.
I’m that boy you love to tease.
So come and lie here next to me.
So set the stage, casting call.
Did you learn your lines? I wrote them all.

Ashley, I could be the boy you want.
I know I’ve known you long enough.
So come on, come on, come on, come on, come on…
Ashley, I could be the boy you need.
I’m that boy you love to tease.
So come and lie here next to me.

Don’t worry about the other girls that come to my show,
cause I know, our love will grow and we’ll grow,
and I will, be the best thing, a blessing, that keeps you coming back every night.
Track Name: The New Colour
Oh, put on your dancing shoes.

and I burned slow, like the bricks and mortar of a house I used to know.
When I was young, yeah.
and when that house burned down, no, I didn’t even make a sound.

Cause I’m a mess of good intentions held together by a string of courtesy.
(I’m so tired, I’m so tired)
and I’ll try so hard to be the person that I know I should be, I could be.
(I’m so tired, I’m so tired)
But I’m crawling in your bed, cause this is the only way you’d ever have me.
(I’m so tired, I’m so tired)
But it’s the price that I will pay, so that I know you’re still okay.

and I grew cold, like the snows of November when you know you shouldn’t leave home.
When I was young, yeah.
and then time took a knife to my face and carved away.
Cause I’m a mess of good intentions held together by a string of courtesy.
(I’m so tired, I’m so tired)
and I’ll try so hard to be the person that I know I should be, I could be.
(I’m so tired, I’m so tired)
But I’m crawling in your bed, cause this is the only way you’ll ever have me.
(I’m so tired, I’m so tired)
But it’s the price that we all pay, so we know we’re still okay.
I’ll put it all in perspective, but perspective can change.
Like those 45s your grandma was singing to you again.

Again, again, again…

Cause I’m a mess of good intentions held together by a string of courtesy.
(I’m so tired, I’m so tired)
and I’ll try so hard to be the person that I know I should be, I could be.
(I’m so tired, I’m so tired)
But I’m crawling in your bed, cause this is the only way you’ll ever have me.
(I’m so tired, I’m so tired)
But it’s the price that I will pay, so that I’ll look at myself again.
