Track Name: Just May Be The One
I was looking for a way out, you were keeping me on my toes. I didn't want to let you know I made a wish it was impossible. And when I called you, I didn't mean it as The Call to you, I didn't think you would read into the little words i sang into your ear, how you long to hear, did it hurt my dear? All alone now, I'm beginning to wonder how all the songs that weren't around came crashing into someone's head. And when I called back, I didn't mean to break your arms, did your heart sound the alarm? Did you wish it was impossible to be in love? 3 little words you long to repeat, sing me your song so sweet. 3 little words that sound the back beat, sing me your song so sweet. The dissonance that's ringing in all our heads, makes us wish that we were dead, makes us wish that we had stayed in bed. When I called you, there was no sound on the phone, you left me alone. I made a wish it was impossible to be in love.
Track Name: Carey (Joni Mitchell)
This is a Joni Mitchell song.
Track Name: Mall Of America
Steps that we retrace up and down the block. It's not a disgrace, I am not afraid. He was a good man, he took the trash out. With all that surrounds him, he got his bed made. I used to dream I'd save you, I used to dream you'd know my name. I used to dream I'd save you, I used to dream the song still played. You used to tell me all about Joey, dog in the backyard, all of the tracks laid. Ran out of money after the fire, I can't fall asleep until the song fades.
Track Name: Are You Feeling Me?
I should have known you'd leave the room when I said that I can't stop thinking about you. Open your mouth but the words don't come through.You say you're feelin’ me, but are your feelings true? Oh how can you say you're in love with me when you don't even want to believe? oh how will I know if your love is real when you won't even say how you feel? In bed all day dreaming you away. I say I'm alright while the tears run down my face. I'm reading into the words you won't say. I still can't tell if you even want to stay. I'm not saying I'm not sorry. I'm not saying you should go. I'm not saying I'm not in love. I'm just saying let me know.
Track Name: Detroit Diamonds (Sacred Strays)
This is a Sacred Strays song.
Track Name: Apocalypse Movies
Never mind how you found me, Never mind all you are, Never mind system signal, Never mind in your arms, Never mind only one thing, Never mind who you all, Never mind chance at nothing, Never mind how you call, Never mind you. Never mind how you listen, Never mind man today, Never mind through the walkway,
Never mind song away, Never mind awkward goodbye, Never mind making plans, Never mind tears in your eye, Never mind goodbye dance,
Never mind me. Never mind me. Never mind love.
Track Name: Love and Death
The rain came down all night, and I don't mind. Is love all you want to find in the pale moonlight? We've been waiting all our lives, hoping it will arrive, there's tears in your eyes and I don't know why you cry. Our song crackles around the dial, but I can hear. The clothes you wore all in a pile, are you cold my dear? We've been waiting all our lives, hoping it will arrive, there's tears in my eyes, but I don't know why.
Track Name: Cut Your Bangs
Last night I saw your face in the hallowed light. You were standing taller than the mountain side. Your long hair flowed down in blues and whites, and I just stood there, bathed in the quiet. No, you say you'll cut your bangs, I'm calling your bluff. Yeah when you lie to me it's in the small stuff. Now your mouth is foaming like a rabid dog, and where the river flowed is now a clouded fog. Your teeth are gnashing louder than your monologue, and I just stood there, bathed in the quiet. Now the flesh is melting off of your bones. The maggots around your heart make themselves at home. Where the river flowed I am left alone, and I just stood there, bathed in the quiet.
Track Name: Five and Dime
Runnin' down the stairs, your runnin' out the door. Shout at all your friends runnin' up the hill. Hold me in your arms, let your long hair down. Can you feel the weight, pullin' on the chain wrapped around your heart? A burning love, feel the flame around your heart, a burning love. Feel the weight pullin' on the chain. Breathe slow and long, your hand on my thigh. Lips on my neck, we fall in line. Quiver in the dark, spill a glass of wine. Can you feel the weight, pullin' on the chain wrapped around your heart? A burning love, feel the flame around your heart, a burning love, feel the weight pullin' on the chain.
Track Name: Venus Of The Avenue
I guess you didn't think we would notice your pretty eyes staring us down. Your love washes over us in waves. Mikey and Jon sitting at the piano, sing "You're the talk of the town." Your love is swimming through all of our days. And your the Venus of the avenue, and all the boys think they're in love with you. Your subtle sway, alone in the moonlight: The story of Everything. There's magic and fireworks in the air. We didn't think that you could find us just from the songs that we sing. We're terrified, but we don't care. You're the Venus of the avenue, all the boys think they're in love with you. We think we love her, we hardly know her name.
