Track Name: When It's Just Me and You
they look at you because you’re here with me
they look at me and say that i’m a freak
and not just because i can breathe
underwater like a submarine
hold my hand
like you do
when it’s just
me and you
if I were any other common man
we’d be busy making common plans
but we’re quite content making smiles
let’s ignore the others for awhile
hold my hand
like you do
when it’s just
me and you
me and you
me and you
me and you
Track Name: Sweet Alyssum
I look at you and smile
You notice, or so you say
you talk about how just the sight of me
can make a woman’s day
we wander through the garden
breathe in the garden air
is it you or roses
sweet alyssum or your hair

but how long
can i drag this on
how long,
how long

we both love the garden
any time we leave’s always too soon
the sweet smell of lilies
i wish the lilacs were in bloom
you look at me and smile
I notice, but look away
you talk about how just the sight of me
can make a woman’s day
You look at me and smile
I pretend not to care
is it you or roses
sweet alyssum or your hair
Track Name: I'll Let You Know When I Know
where is this going
you need to know
will it last forever
you need to know

i cannot know
how could i know
i’ll let you know
when i know

then you lay it out
for me to plainly see
if it’s forever
then i’m to be
at the train station
tomorrow at noon
we’ll head out to wherever
to start our life anew

i cannot know
how could i know
i’ll let you know
when i know
Track Name: Forever's a Long, Long Time
in bed
all alone
holding
the phone
just in case
you call
staring at the ceiling
staring at the wall

forever’s a long, long time
and tonight feels like forever
so i can only imagine
what forever will feel like

in bed
thinking time
do i go to the train?
or write a different line?

forever’s a long, long time
and tonight feels like forever
so i can only imagine
what forever will feel like
Track Name: Yes I Know
Yes I know I want you now
No, I know I didn’t know it before
But the voices in my head
remind me of what might be in store

There’s your mother’s:
“He’ll cheat on you. He’ll let you down. They always do.”
There’s my brother’s:
“She’ll steal your time, and drag you down, and mush your mind.”

Yes I know I want you now
No, I know I didn’t know it before
But the voices in my head
remind me of what might be in store

There’s my father’s:
“You’ve had a plan.
Who needs a girl?
Just be a man!”
Then there’s the others with nagging doubts.
Expect regrets. There’s no way out.

Yes I know I want you now
No, I know I didn’t know it before
Track Name: The Muffled Light
where am i now
in bed i’d been
the muffled light
the treble thinned
he’s on my neck
he’s on my back
he’s tied me up
he’ll leave me trapped

the ropes have cut
right through my skin
i can’t escape
the hell i’m in
i catch a glimpse
into his eye
into his soul
he soon will die
Track Name: In a Tub
my limbs are tied
i’m in a tub
he’s weighed me down
it’s filling up
Track Name: To Find My Way

Track Name: Which Way's Out?
Lift my head, Look around
I see her smile, Is he around?
Who’s this girl? Do I wanna know?
I think of you, I really gotta go
Which way’s out?
I have no clue
She takes my hand
She looks like you

She’s taking me, To another room
Filled with beasts, With weapons too
And one by one, I beat them down
I beat them up, To the ground
I see my out
Know what to do
I take her out
I’m off to look for you
Track Name: My Whistle
The blinding sun
high in the sky
It’s nearly noon
where am I?
The whistle calls to me
It sounds like your voice
Can you hear my whistle, babe?
Can you feel my choice?

Where had I been
how’d I escape?
Forget that now
I can’t be late
The whistle calls to me
It sounds like your voice
Can you hear my whistle, babe?
Can you feel my choice?
Track Name: You and Another Guy
what’s he doing here?
why’s he smiling at you?
what’s going on?
you’re smiling too.

i think i’ll bite my tongue
watch for a little while
and picture in my head
you and another guy

i know that smile
forced and fake
convincing you and him
that it’ll be okay

where’s he taking you
i can’t just let this be
“let go of her
she’s waiting here for me!”
Track Name: Through the Crowd
that’s when
he pushed
you to the ground

‘nd found his
way to
me through the crowd

face to face
he threw a punch
i made him miss
i dodged and ducked
counter punch
to his head
to the ground
left for dead

that’s when
you rose
up from the ground

‘nd found your
way to
me through the crowd

hand in hand
to the train
to god knows where
we’ll return again
Track Name: The Bride and Me
Forever’s a long, long time and
tonight feels like forever
So I can only imagine
What forever will feel like

Here comes
the bride
and me
Welcome home

There await
our fami-
ies
Welcome home
Welcome home

You stayed - with me - despite - everything
I missed - what was - right - in front of me
But I turned - my head - around - eventually
and I ignored - the ones - who would doubt - you and me
you and me

Then I was torn - from this world - I thought I’d die
I had to find - my way to you - I had to try
I fought temptation - and I fought an evil - enemy
But I won and now it’s just you and me
you and me

Here comes - the bride - and me - welcome home
there await - our famil - ies - welcome home
Welcome home
