Track Name: Did You Really Say No (feat. Vanessa Paradis)
Did you really say No?
Well, I thought you meant yes
There were shadows in your hair
There were flowers on your dress

And the flowers grew wild
And the shadows turned to trees
Were you happy as a child?
Saw you dancing in the breeze?

Baby baby on the floor
What did you come here for?
Did you really say no?
Baby you used to glow

Did you really say No?
Well, I thought you meant please
You were happy as a child
I was numb to my knees

Then the flowers turned red
And the shadows grew tall
Did I make you disappear?
Were you ever here at all?

Baby baby on the floor
What did you come here for?
Did you really say no?
Baby I used to know

Baby baby on the floor
What did you come here for?
Did you really say no?
Where did your color go?
Track Name: Breathing Fine
The feeling of falling
Is still so familiar
The pain in my stomach
Is better but baby
Bright colors have faded
too early this year
And strangers look stranger
Around here

The flowers you’ve left here
have died in the heat,
I see parts of your face now
On girls in the street
I hope you like your new neighbors
Don’t sleep with every new stranger
It’s lonely, but only at night

But most of the time
I'm breathing fine
Most of the time
I'm breathing fine
I smile at familiar faces
I talk to myself in empty spaces
But breathing is fine
Most of the time

It’s half of me baby
That still is infected
No water has cleansed it
No sleep has erased it
Towards and aways-from
This room is a cage
And things I’m trying to write you
They die on the page

But most of the time I’m breathing fine
Most of the time I’m breathing fine
I’ve played through the great composers
I get through the nights
On wine and prose, and
Breathing is fine…
Most of the time

What else can I tell you?
I just turned thirty-one
The boy grew no wings
So he’s learned how to run
I hope you keep out of danger
Now, stranger to stranger
It’s lonely, but only at night
And most of the time
I’m breathing fine…
Track Name: Second Hand Lovers
Listening to music
We’ve heard once before
You take your shirt off
You drop on the floor
Then you crawl to the bedroom
But you stop at the door

Conversations grow old
You and I
We have not said a word
In a while
I’m losing my humor
You’re losing your smile

And the night portrays us
The moon betrays us
And the dark uncovers us
And under the covers
Lying second hand lovers
Tonight
Seasons and sorrows
And pictures we took
You’ll start smoking
I’m reading a book
I’m losing my vision,
You’re losing your looks
And the music
Plays bitter, plays sweet
You let your hair down
And roll off your seat
And you crawl to the bed,
but you stop at its feet

And the night portrays us
The moon betrays us
And the dark uncovers us
And under the covers
Lying second hand lovers
Tonight

Something about my voice
Reminds you of
Something I used to say
You used to love

And the night portrays us
The piano plays us
And the dark uncovers us
And under the covers
Lying second hand lovers
Tonight
Track Name: Look at Her Go
Look at her go she was oh so brave
Well, there wasn’t a light
inside his cave
Well there wasn’t a light in
Where he was hiding
But it was cool, so cool inside it

What if she knocked?
What if he’d say, “Yes!”
Well, she’s hiding a gun
under her dress
Oh, well, what if he’ll find it?
Well, he won’t mind it
Perhaps she will shoot it
Perhaps she will shine it

Tooo dooo dooo dooo dooo…

Look at her go she was oh so sweet
Bringing apples and flowers
and things to eat
Oh such beautiful flowers
Sweets to devour
She’s pretty and soft
He’s perfumed and showered

Look at her go she was oh so pure
Dressed in shiny blue leather but insecure
She was dressed up in feathers
and soft as a kitten
Say who will get licked and who
will get bitten?

Tooo dooo dooo dooo dooo…

Look at her go she was oh so brave
Well, there wasn’t a light inside his cave
Well there wasn’t a light in
Where he was hiding
But it was cool, so cool inside it
Track Name: Sonata Sentimental #1: You've Changed
You’ve changed
Time has passed
Words fade fast
Memories
Paper cuts

How you’ve grown
Glad you phoned
Did you find your song?

You’ve left
Lovely red
Were you bored?
Don’t you like
My minor chords?

Wings you’ve grown
How you’ve flown
Hope you’ve found your song

You’ve changed
Lovely red
Time was lost
Now half of you
For half the cost
Track Name: The Passion Song
Did you really say no?
Well, I thought you meant yes
There were shadows in your hair
There were flowers on your dress

And the flowers grew wild
And the shadows grew thin
You were happy as a child
Dancing in the wind

Then the flowers turned red
And the shadows grew tall
Did I make you disappear?
Were you here at all?

Oh how it aches
Breaks the river from the lake
Oh how it aches
What a beautiful mistake

Did you really say no?
Well, I thought you meant please
You were happy as a child
I was numb to my knees

Little baby by the sea
Gazing at the waves swirl
You were bottomless and free
You were nobody’s girl

Then the ocean burned red
And the shadows grew tall
Did I make you disappear
Were you here at all?

Oh how it aches
Breaks the river from the lake
Oh how it aches
What a beautiful mistake

Did you really say no?
Well, I thought you meant yes
There were shadows in your hair
There were flowers on your dress
Track Name: Sonata Sentimental #2: Bedroom Crimes
All I recall
Is the span of the fall
And the loss
Then the gain of control

Naked and blinded
You know I don’t mind it
It’s gone but we’ll find it tonight

Tell now, my sweet
Am I bleeding on the sheets?
Guilty of a crime
Committed in my sleep?

Crimes we commit
Moving underneath the sheets
Secrets do we keep
In our sleep

Finally mine
Stole it out of your mind
It’s the note
That I never could find

Some of the floor
Wasn’t there anymore
We were happy
Well, happy and bored

Tell now, my sweet
Am I bleeding on the sheets?
Guilty of a crime
Committed in my sleep?

Crimes we commit
Moving underneath the sheets
Secrets do we keep
In our sleep

All I recall
Is the span of the fall
And the words that were said
Not at all
Track Name: Something Real (Did You Feel It Too?)
I’m your biggest fan
Did you mean it when
You sang love is cheap
I don’t understand

Something in your voice
In the way you stand
The way you stare at me
You look so innocent

You’ll be famous soon
I just know you will
Oh I love your voice
way it makes me feel
I’m your biggest fan
You can walk me home

I just moved to town
Don’t know if I’ll stay
Don’t know anyone
Came to watch you play

You have pretty eyes
Like a child you are
Glad I met you now
You’ll be going far

You can take me home
Will you talk to me?
’Cause I love your voice
Just say anything
You’ll say anything
Just to take me home
But you made me feel
Something real
Did you feel it too?

Won’t you peel my heart?
Will you slice it thin?
If you can’t give love
Will you show me sin?

Will you sing to me?
Hold me in the dark?
If you hurt me please
Don’t leave any marks

You know loneliness
Is a funny thing
Things it makes you do
You know what I mean
You can have me now
I’m your biggest fan

But you made me feel
Something real
Did you feel it too?

Will you think of me
Many years from now
Will you know my name
When you sing my song?
Will you know my name
I’m your biggest fan
Track Name: Autopsy Report
Age of victim thirty-four
Found spread legged on the floor
Time of death could not be set
Victim says he’s not dead yet

Second victim on her back
Yellow hair dyed Auburn Black
Cause of death: a slow decay
Time of death: was every day

Spray a drop of your perfume
Watch the flowers, now in bloom
There’s a stranger in your room?

Baby baby made no sound
Saw your body hit the ground

Oh no… Oh no…
You let yourself show
Oh no… Oh no…
You let yourself show
Oh no… Oh no…
Left your fingerprints all over me
Oh no… Oh no…

The departed is survived
By no children and no wife
But a picture of a tree
And a fainted memory

Murder weapon on the bed
Suspect sighted giving head
Victim crouching on his knees
Loves his beautiful disease
And the girl who shot the king
Shook his broken violin
There’s no melody within
And the engines made no sound
Saw your shadow hit the ground

Oh no… Oh no…
You let yourself show
Oh no… Oh no…
You let yourself show
Oh no… Oh no…
Left your fingerprints all over me
Oh no… Oh no…

Spray a drop of your perfume
Watch the flowers, now in bloom
There’s a stranger in your room?
Baby baby made no sound
Saw your body hit the ground
Oh no… Oh no…

Got your message late last night
Glad your trip turned out alright
I heard you found a little flat
I guess we’re better off like that
Track Name: Note to Self
Never say never
But never say always
Sometimes can be good for you

Try to be kinder
to people who bore you
You’re probably boring them too

Never say one thing
And wish for another
For which of the two will come true?
If you can love it
then it will most likely love you

Never say never
And don’t be so clever
It’s lonely to win every fight

Never say something you
Wouldn’t like hearing
If you can’t be nice, be polite

Like you do one thing
is how you do everything
But you can’t do everything right…
All of the time… All of the time…

And try to be true, try to be fair
Don’t play so much with your hair
Don’t pick but strum
Make room, it’ll come
And take better care
Don’t be so late,
Don’t make people wait
Don’t act like you’re so fucking great
Don’t over prepare
And take better care
Care of yourself… Care of yourself…

Water the flowers
Don’t pee in the shower
And books aren’t your friends,
they’re just art

Don’t say you hate it
You don’t need to love it
There are so many shades to your heart

Be a good lover
The thing you’ll discover
You’re more than the sum of your parts
(Don’t think you know how it ends,
’Cause you know how it starts)

And try to be true, try to be fair
Don’t play so much with your hair
Don’t pick but strum
Make room, it’ll come
And take better care
Don’t be so late,
Don’t make people wait
Don’t act like you’re so fucking great
Don’t over prepare
And take better care
Care of yourself… Care of yourself…
