Track Name: The Hallway
Tripping over the cat in the hall
Suitcase in hand
I’m leaving this all right now, while you sleep
Goodbye’s are cruel
Don’t you say, don’t you say I never loved you at all
‘cause I love you, I love you

But what kind of dreams did you have before you met me, dear heart?
Dear heart…
What kind of people did you love before me, dear heart?
Oh dear heart, dear to me
What is the continuum of your life
I’m just a drip in a grey April
Just a passing cloud in your life
Don’t you say I never loved you, cause I love you, cause I love you

It’s maybe five years too soon for you to settle down
All those fallow years in a young man’s life
And as for me, nobody knows-
But so you know, so you know, so you know
Oh, I… think goodbyes are so cruel
Don’t you say I never loved you at all for I love you, love you, dear heart
oh
Track Name: The Train
Thinking about the way that blood spreads in water
And looking away from the strangers on the train
And the stare back between the close seats
Thoughts broken up by children’s laughter
It’s a good day to kick

whispering every time that you speak
is she really, and am I this close?
Did she really come down?
Will she really come
Can I touch
Can I feel
Did you really
Did you really come down?

Can I touch
Can I feel
Did you really
Did you really come down?

you can smile but you can’t speak but it’s not so easy coming down
Track Name: The New Place
Three flights of stairs
And your brand new key
Drop your bags by the door
And the sounds of your feet on the floor
They repeat they repeat they repeat
One window to the street
This don’t
This don’t
This don’t(this don’t)

(this lonely place)

this don’t come easy
it’s so still/this don’t come easy
it’s so still you can feel your heartbeat
your thoughts on repeat
and the sounds of the street
this don’t
this don’t
this don’t
your thoughts on repeat
and the sounds of the street
this don’t
this don’t
this don’t come easy
Track Name: In My Head
Tripping over myself in the night oh
I want you, I want you
Tripping over myself in the night
I can’t come without you

I’m always thinking about you
(baby)

Junk sick, baby, here we go again
I’m on ya, in my head
The way you taste and the look on your face
I’m on ya, in my head
I’m on ya, I'm on ya
and I can’t come with you

Baby, oh

Tripping over myself in the night again
I want you, I want you
Tripping over myself in the night again
I can’t come without you

I don’t take your calls
And I’ve blocked you all the ways that I can think of
But I want you
