Track Name: pop star
1 am
morning again
no sleeping
she runs by the river
looking for his plane
knowing miles away, he's gone
was there more to say?
took an airplane
all life stops
mars is far from, here
she's so contrary
he's a pop star
sigh little girl
cry little girl
say goodbye
little girl
Track Name: moment
I'll pick you up
the moment's gone
and I'll sing you an un-sung song
I can make no promises
but I'll sing for you

one moment more
of this groundlessness
one moment more of your groundless kiss

you'll pick me up
the moment's here
let's just play
I like you near
You, you can make no promises
I won't ask you to, stay

for one instant more
of this groundlessness
one second more
of my mistaken bliss

You'll fly away
no moments left
no regrets
and when you wake up with my name on your breath
I'd have waited eons for your candid kisses
x2
Track Name: summer's collapse
I'd like to find a line
in winter or in fall
somewhere in the better
time we shared together
we were sinking like the sun
with the tide and all above

horizon fades to gray
and it feels like

playing like we're lovers
caught without a clue
drifting by our crowded coast
somewhere in the day
no one likes to be alone
this might just collapse

horizon fades to gray
and it feels like

playing like we're lovers
caught without a clue
drifting by our crowded coast
somewhere in the day
no one likes to be alone
maybe this will last

horizon fades to gray
and it feels like
Track Name: wonder
what happened here
to me and you
more than anyone could ignore
yet we do

and we wonder
what is love

it's not exactly clear
but there are no accidents
said you

and we wonder
and we wonder

now we look at fear
is this step one or step two
it's not black nor white
what's a girl to do
are we through

so we tied one on
then stumbled in
the stage is wide open
I'm falling
and I'm lost to you
and I'm lost to you

oh yeah kind of blue
wondering
Track Name: pandora
Pandora won't make up her mind
suitcases still left behind

she has not gone long
without thoughts of him
Tristan and Isolde
closing in

words are void, but are sooner said
Stanley please stop playing with my head

she has not gone long
without thoughts of him
Tristan and Isolde
closing in

maybe I care for you
but can admit to none of it
Track Name: strings
lai lai lai lai
lai lai lai
lai lai lai lai
lai
lai lai lai
lai lai lai
lai lai
lai lai lai lai lai lai
lai lai lai lai lai lai lai

in all this confusion
lipstick, your hands
my legs, a taxi
aaahhh

I'll bathe your feet tonight
where would they be tonight?

lai lai lai lai
lai lai lai

serendipidous circumstances
brought you here, next to me

da da da da da
da da dum

Paris
you're bed or mine
London
you're bed or mine
never thought I'd see your face
again, only these strings
bring you near to me
bring you near
Track Name: moonbeams
maybe I'm banking on miracles
cause miracles happen
maybe I'm seeking moonbeams
on the horizon

it maybe brilliant
it maybe war
it maybe paradise
it maybe metaphor
somehow I thought there was more than this
somehow I thought there was more than this

maybe I'm banking on miracles
cause miracles happen
maybe I'm seeking moonbeams
on the horizon

it maybe simple
it maybe a ruse
it maybe brutal
it maybe no use
it maybe cryptic
it maybe abyss
somehow I thought there was more than this

maybe I'm banking on miracles
cause miracles happen
Track Name: sea of green
his eyes are brown
sea is green
kindest man
I've ever seen
waves are high
wind is low
got no other
place to go

easy does it
slow glide
easy does it
joy ride

Bobby Shaftoe
went to sea
silver buckle
on his knee
will he be back
to marry me

easy does it
slow glide
easy does it joy ride
easy does it
locked inside
Track Name: alien
drive round this place, alien
tears stream down my face

sometimes life's not
what it seems
then I
put on a dream
like a record
fill the scene
and make it
serene

palm trees on the dash
maybe it's been ten years
but I thought you lived near
smiles on the outside, pain

sometimes life's not what it seems
then I put on a dream

you waltz back in pleading guilty
sorry you treated me badly

why's it always my love knows no time?
while your love's slipped your mind

this time life is
what it seems
now I
live my dreams
like this record
fill the scene
and keep it
serene
Track Name: johnny boy
Johnny boy I'd love
Johnny boy I'd love
Johnny boy I'd love
to love you

oh sister I've fallen
for a man I can't be calling
I said sister, I've fallen
for a man I can't be calling
no I never meant to do no harm

creeps up on you
sneaks up on you
no I never thought I'd fall again
yet here I am

singing

Johnny boy I'd love
Johnny boy I'd love
Johnny boy I'd love
to love you
