Track Name: two thirds of a fifth
we play games with each other,
no basketball court,
I get the coldest shoulder,
when I see you on the street,
Someone may treat you better,
I know that's the truth,
I just can't treat you as,

two thirds of a fifth,

I feel it taking over,
not that it's getting worse,
if we ever had a problem,
you never let it out,
someone may treat you better,
I know that's the truth,
I doubt she'll stick around,
I just can't treat you as,

two thirds of a fifth,
Track Name: another try
just another try,
taking chances,

I had it all, had it all,
until I, threw it away,
when I decided,
it's too much, it's too much

just another try,
taking chances,

all along the water bank,
we slip in the grass and frozen mud,
now I think of how I fell,
my sight and mind are, out of touch

just another try,
taking chances
Track Name: softie
one token of labour,
they can't access your mind,
I think of my lover,
how one day we'll die,
the truth is nature,
pays us no mind,
like the movement of water,
you cannot rewind,
I think of my father,
almost eighty years old,
he still moves like a child,
his heart is pure,

I thought I knew so much,
about love and affection,
a universe connected,
when you find love,
Track Name: beside you
oh, my love,
they made you and sent you,
down from above,
the light, won't stop,
shining,

I get so down,
I sit here and wonder,
who you're around,
all in my head,
I'm whining,

if I'm beside you,
when the music's electronic,
would I still be who you wanted?
or would someone else be calling?

oh, my love,
the light on the table, creates a reflection,
our eyes keep trying to meet,
I feel the wind,
pushing the people in every direction,
I just want to get,
through to you,

if I'm beside you,
when the music's electronic,
would I still be who you wanted?
or would someone else be calling?
Track Name: mother
mother,
I have woken,
from my dreaming,
I am breathing,
but not revealing,
all my thoughts to you,
they're too dark and true,

if I'm conscious,
non-responsive,
I'm still thinking,
I'll stop drinking,
give me some good news,
not too dark and true,
give me good news,

all the pretty things,
that the world brings,
just like sunny days,
without suffering,
from the heavy blues,
it’s too dark and true,
all the heavy news,

mother,
I have woken,
from my dreaming ,
I am breathing,
but not revealing,
all my thoughts to you,
they’re too dark and true
Track Name: three o'clock, paris
She can walk,
On water,
And make,
Every man fall,
You might think,
I’m a liar,
Who believes,
In a foolish call,
Now it’s three o’clock, paris,
Where she stays,
Every other fall,
She’s beyond,
Mona Lisa,
And over the Berlin Wall,
Track Name: run in 2 u
I’m at the jet cafe,
Hoping I run into you,
All the love we made,
We could never wear it out,

I go to bed alone,
It’s always better with two,
All the love we had,
Can’t even talk about,

Don’t think I can it up,
We deserve to see things through,
Turn pages at a breakneck pace,
Hope that I run into you,

You moved far away,
Took a red-eye flight,
And I just stay home,
Maybe I’ll go out tonight,

Look at your phone,
You’ve been notified,
Sent all my shame,
Little bit of stupid pride,

Don’t think I can it up,
We deserve to see things through,
Turn pages at a breakneck pace,
Hope that I run into you,
Track Name: far apart
If I’d known,
Right from the start,
Always beside one another,
But we feel so far apart,

Mother Nature,
Only sighs in disbelief,
Two different insects,
Crawling on one leaf,
Track Name: fell in love
I fell in love at a party,
There were actors, tatoos,
Drinking red wine on the floor there,
The girl who’d become my muse,
I tag along with her body,
Wherever she goes, like glue,
Her shadow could be a painting,
Vivid in colour and hue
Oh my woman is never wrong,
She deserves a long song,

I’m scared to death,
Someday I may have no love left,

How long have we been together,
A year and a half, in change,
And we live in a house now,
It’s small with a sturdy frame,
Sometimes my chest can’t handle,
The love that I’m laying beside,
And in the past, I’ve been stranded,
But now my river runs wide

Oh my woman is never wrong,
She deserves a long,

I’m scared to death,
Someday I may have no love left.
