Track Name: Better Dead Than Disappointed
BETTER DEAD THAN DISAPPOINTED

Do you love me to death?
Don’t say you don’t know
Some days the sun makes you sadder than rain
Sometimes it’s warm when you sleep in the snow
Some times you stay
When you know you should go

And I see the waves way above me
And I drift with the water
Better dead than disappointed
God is everywhere… but here

We took our old battered car
For a ride
The Hitchcock crows
And burning sky of Segovia
And I don't know why I'm crying
I must be missing you now

And I see the waves way above me
And I drift with the water
Better dead than disappointed.
And God is everywhere…....

And the world we made up once
Was better than this one
Better dead than disappointed.
And God is everywhere… but here.

I'm sleeping on the floor of the ocean
Track Name: Johnny Joey Dee Dee
Johnny Joey Dee Dee
Leave me
With my crystal white death
Track Name: Ropewalking
ROPEWALKING

So this must be it
Young wasted hands
Punched into the air
And wild, wild, declarations
To never return
To all of this

The ringmaster screams
But the ropewalker says;
“The desire to fall overwhelms me”

She said:
"Wait for me to phone
'Cos my life is strange at home”
She paints it red
A flood of red

The ringmaster screams
But the ropewalker says;
“The desire to fall overwhelms me”
Track Name: At Last A Love Song
AT LAST A LOVE SONG.

I will hold you in my skinny arms
Then and there you’ll know
I will never let you go
My heart is full of stars

Walk with me
Through burning fields
This land of yellow fire
I will love you
When the sun falls in the sea
I’ll sleep alone and sigh

So look up through the clouds
See a million shining lights
I put them there for you
I will love you
When the rocks fall into dust
I’ll sleep alone and sigh

And this is the way
You make me go
And this fear
I will not show
At last
At last a love song
Track Name: Life Of The Frightened
LIFE OF THE FRIGHTENED

Friday morning
And the universe is shrinking
Monday evening
And the sun will not go down

Those years spent in the city
Were the worst times of my life
But I'm not the one
Who fell apart and cried

If you could be me girl
For just one hour
You would see
The true life of the frightened
I'm one of the frightened

Tuesday's children
Can't remember why
Wednesday's lovers
Became Thursday's long goodbye

And when you whispered
"You've no right to love life"
I knew then
I knew then

If you could be me girl
For just one hour
You would see
The true life of the frightened
Track Name: Bechstein
BECHSTEIN.

Now you've gone
There's a hole in my house
Now you've gone
There's a silence

Crash the piano lid
In a small airless room
And play a dirge
A bitter tune

One more time
Without feeling
One more time
And we'll go drowning
And play the songs that made us cry
Play the Bechstein

Now you've gone
There's a hole in my house
Now you've gone
There's a silence

One more time
Without feeling
One more time
Play the Bechstein.

And you'll forget the feel of him
The smell of him. The life of him.
The photos will replace him.
The lies of frozen time.
Track Name: Love Like A Car Crash
LOVE LIKE A CAR CRASH

I could have been so free
I could have been happy
But I never walk away
I never slam the door
This foolish loser
Keeps coming back for more
And more…

When the girl says ”it's over”
Believe that it’s over
You always said yes
You should have said no
You poor, poor fool
Did no one explain?
It’s more, more heartache.
More, more tears
Love as a shipwreck
Love like a car crash
Then you can’t see her

Your half-dead heart
Beats slowly away
Like a bomb in the basement.
Like words you can’t say
Like games in the playground
They won’t let you play
Then everything goes,
And all that remains is
More, more heartache
More more tears
Love as a shipwreck
Love like a car cash
When you can’t see her...

I could have been so free
I could have been happy
But I never walk away
I never slam the door
This foolish loser
Keeps coming back for more
And more…
Track Name: Narcosis
NARCOSIS

There’s a bed and a pillow
Soft and warm
There’s a field filled with flowers
That can heal

Life survives
In the corner of your soul
And she knows that love
Soon loses meaning.

Is that it?
Is that all there really is?
If it is
Give me narcosis

And all feeling
Can be simply swept away
By a single lovely act
Of self-destruction.

Is that it?
Is that all there really is?
If it is
Give me narcosis.

"I'm down here.
You can't see me, or hear me,
Or save me"

Is that it?
Is that all there really is?

For the black narcosis
Of her tears
Is that it?
Is that all there really is?

If it is
Then it is
Narcosis.
Track Name: Sunset
SUNSET

No more sunsets through these windows
No more Joni Mitchell
No more holding on for morning
In this cage you call a room
So run away and hide your heart
And close this house of sleepers down
I can't love you
I can't save you anymore

In the garden for the blinded
Thorns mean more than rose
No gentle willows weeping
No names carved in the tree
So run away and hide your heart
And close this house of lovers down
I can't hold you
I can't keep you anymore

Now in your face
Just fallen grace
The love I gave
Left dying under stars
And don’t you know
The sunset’s over
