Track Name: Lover's End Pt. 1
It’s Saturday night and you’re dressed to the 9’s, who will walk
with you home tonight?
The one you could always turn yourself to is out on a late night
rendezvous
Guess you’ve known for a while that I’m dying inside and this
silver tongue’s lost all it’s words
What took years to build up takes a night to tear down, and this
night will haunt me for the rest of my life
‘Cause she couldn’t change my world
She didn’t see the best in me
She couldn’t change my world
She’ll never understand
Now I carry the can, try to walk like a man knowing time will just
wound our heals
Sympathy fights through the tears in your eyes, couldn’t take
another night at 10A
It seems the older I get the more things to regret, I thought we
would grow old together
But know I’m standing here quiet as love fades away, in a year
from now I still can’t speak
Only you could change my world
You always saw the best in me
Only you could change my world
I didn’t understand
I will try to remember the Halcyon days, forget that I ever hurt you
If we’ll meet again some day, could we say the things we never
said
Now I’m stalking the bars and I pity my scars, like a self made
martyr on the run from it all, If somehow you love me still, baby,
would you let me know?
Track Name: A Kid Called Panic
Hiding in the comfort of corners, I guess in a way
everybody hides
Though I need my friends more than ever, I don’t want
anyone by my side
Who is that boy in the mirror ,waving goodbye to the
man? I can’t seem to shake that sad feeling that I’ll
never be who I really am
Though I’m lost I’m only one over the eight
Goodbye Station 8, guess you’ve
heard as of late, I’ll be drinking this night on my own
I’m going away to my own special place where I turn off
the lights and the phone, so won’t you...
Help - I need to escape, I don’t belong in here
Here’s to my fears, sorrows and tears
there goes another year
He’s that kid, with panic through the streets, that no one
really sees, Oh, that kid looks one hell of a lot like me
My friends that left town are returning, they know that
I’m too homeward bound
I’m sick of their heads that keep turning, of nodding and
saying I’m fine, I’m not fine
The 46’’ is my friend now, I order my food to the door
I suffocate on medication, those pills just can’t do it
somehow
I shot myself down, August 2008
now I carry this pathetic wound
I don’t even talk, I won’t listen at all
but I’m hoping that some day you’ll call, so won’t you...
When I turned from the truth in a far cry from you, denied
the hand of a friend that could help me through
Mealy mouthed, unsure, afraid of it all
Never confident but I know how to fall
Say is it you outside the window? Coming home to me
one last time? I swear I just saw your silhouette
sliding into the bedroom where angels blessed our skin,
now only dust
I am still knocking at your door, but love doesn’t live here
anymore
I know you’ll be coming home again, but nothing will
ever be the same; You’re taking your things, returning
my heart
I curse my own pride as I’m watching the phone, is there
anything happening at all? I drink til’ I cry but just can’t
fall asleep, someone please give me a call
Summer is over we’ve used all our dreams, now I tumble
in blind memories
You’ve changed your address, soon you’ll change your
last name, how I wish I’d change at all
Help - I need to escape, I don’t belong in here
Here’s to my fears, sorrows and tears
there goes another year
Help - I need to escape, but I do belong in here
Here’s to you love, wherever you are
You’re still inside of me
As the last lover’s sailing away in the night, by the
harbour retired romantics
Left behind telling stories of how it was oh, so much
better before...
Before any of us fell in love...
Track Name: Southern Belle
Born again to longer days, once more wishful eyes awake
Nightly schemes in sunburnt shell, ‘just one kiss’ my southern belle
As these summer storms abound, carries minds from one-trick
towns, what you want will never be what you have
Somewhere, waiting for my love, someone, where I’ll go
A postcard with her lips enclosed, I’ll taste them and lose control
And in my heart she stayed a while, though better men have failed I
tried to cross the great divide found between her heart and mine
Swim with me, you fantasy, you are the hardest thing to follow
If losing you means losing me, I guess this night’ll last forever
Hear my southern belle chime ‘No surrender’ summer’s child
Track Name: The World's Best Dreamers
Time and meaning never seem to flow as one,
what holy was to yesterday has sunken down
Without it’s crown, and oddly without sound,
your golden calf in the Hudson drowned,
ten times a whiteout of the mind, now we’re
the world’s best dreamers.
It might just be that we’re all going nowhere fast
But even so I would not trade a single day
I’m skating off, with a sad-looking grin,
remember me as you remember a dream;
ever fleeting in flickering lights,
like a memory fading slow when the day comes
And takes us back to playgrounds
full of rolling stones, to the mountain village
when we’d rest our bones
And gently dream, like children of the sun,
on easy street, where all life has begun,
when fun and games were all we had, before
the world deceived us
Some might say that were stuck in the past,
but somehow there’s never truth in their eyes
Just stand aside, cause we’re off to the blue
We’re on our way to the wild me and you
If you listen close you can hear our
hearts beat loud with the sound of a dream
Hold on brother, sleep well; our love is falling over
you young soldier, be strong
We’ll be watching over you, young sister
Come home lover, come home soldier, weaving the
dreams for you
Track Name: New York City Summergirl
I took a trip to Harlem to see where my lonely angel’s
gone, all winter long
Now where’d she get those wings from and my god from
where’d she get those limelight colored eyes.
I know, you know this is just a dream, but come friday
night that angel’s gonna wake me, and then the only thing
I’ll want in this whole world, is for her to be my New York
City Summergirl.
This must be what true love’s like, she’s flowing up
and down and round my simple mind, from far beyond
the ocean the siren’s cry: ”Run, my chicken run, down
rainbow one”
She’s blowing kisses in my dreams, they settle down upon
my shivering sailor heart, they tell me just where i need to
be, and now I’m pretty sure the city’s the place to start.
I know you were never meant to be walking with me in the
cold on New street, still the only thing I want in this whole
world, is for you to be my New York City Summergirl
New York, You’re my New York Summergirl
These days, won’t come round no more I’m sure, so baby
let’s fall in love
I’ve taken that long way round, to meet you in your prime,
darling, just let your hair down low, baby, and dance like
you’ll dance no more
New York, you’re my New York Summergirl
You know, It’s your heart I’m gunning for
”The taste of fruit from distant gardens makes it hard,
I can’t deny, to fall in love on monday morning, with the
plain red dirt, dressed up all in white”
Track Name: Heartland
Open all of your windows, can’t you hear the boys are calling
Step outside for the night, y’know it’s summertime, they´ll all be there
And they’re playing memories on the radio
Got your back pretty one, I know that you’ve got mine
Oh my love, there is trouble in the heartland
You and me, as we walk the square of possibility
Caught up in a love that could not be
I remember she used to refer to you as sweet, sweet prince
Though she’s always known that you’re nothing but a working man’s son
Her ambition was always to high for one of us
Surely you would go on, oh baby, to do what we can’t dream
Oh my love, there is trouble in the heartland
One last dance, save your worries for another rainy day
You wouldn’t want it any other way
But darling it’s time to say our goodbyes to summer romance
By the fall, all will be gone and then we’ll walk our separate ways
We’ll let this night be our last big mistake
From the heroes of yesteryear
The only one, still left standing
Tuned in to life’s radio
A blue song from long ago
Oh my love, there is trouble in the heartland
You and me, as we walk the square of possibility
Caught up in a love that could not be
But darling can’t you see?
We’re still soldiers of the heartland,
even now I still see you like I did when I could dream
of a place where we’d be known as king & queen
Track Name: Crossed The Rubicon
People my people, farewell and adieu,
I am leaving you all for a life behind the walls
Old friends and lovers, take care of each other
this love came to be, nothing but a memory
Gone are the times when I knew you were mine
but I’ll keep them inside among the things that I hide
Playing the fool just won’t do me no good
so I try to play straight, though it’s much to late
Movin’ on - But sleeping the day away
Movin’ on - From all of my thoughts today
You might try to find me, but there’s nothing that binds
me here, memories fade from the life that I’d made
Everyone’s beggin’ for answers but there’s simply
nothing to tell, ‘cause I don’t know myself
Figuring out what my soul is about is a dark road to
take, with a new friend - heartache
I am not leaving for the lack of believing
to follow the heart is the hardest part
All the scenes I keep replaying only make me angry
From another point of view could someone understand
me? Caught up with myself, with thoughts and words
were never spoken
Keep it all inside too long and everything’ll be broken
You stopped me at the supermarket, asked me how
I’m doing
Once again I’m lying to you, tell you that I’m allright
Everything between us seem to sadly fade away
Til’ there’s only me, your photograph and every
Sunday
Mary my love - It’s late, and I’m tired of myself this
isn’t leading anywhere
Mary I’ve realized, I’m just a selfish, jealous guy but
this is me letting you go
Goodbye
People my people, forget what I’ve done
I’m off down the highway, straight into the sun
There’ll be no happy end, for romantic fools like me
All we do is run, while love is bleeding in the streets
We have our whole damned lives to wear our problems
down, and then we say the words: “I love you”,
when the words don’t mean a thing
Crossed the Rubicon, I’m movin’ on
Keep the memories, this town is yours
Track Name: Lover's End Pt. 2
You know that I love you, you know that it's true
You know that I need you, and everything you do
Why does the world continue to spin?
I don't even know where to begin without you in my heart I can't breathe
You know that I love you, you know that I'm sorry
You know that I miss you, and everything about you
Why does the sun continue to shine?
I'm all at sea with only you in my mind and now you're gone and I'm all alone
There will come a day when I won't think about you
That will be a sad day, that will be a wonderful day
