Track Name: Blues
Been thinking 'bout the time I spend alone
that I could've spent with you
When no-one's got a thing to say
that beats what you might say to pull me through
You've only got to nod your head, or take my hand
and everything's alright
I'm wishing you were here right now,
to take away my blues tonight

I know that I've been busy lately
I don't mean to push your love away
I'm trying to be there for you
have time for you at least once every couple of days
But your eyes say, I miss you
when your lips say goodnight
I just want you tell me
We'll be alright

Yeah we'll be alright
alright
Track Name: Less Than Three
Let me start by saying sorry
I know I don't tell you how I feel
It takes enough to say I want you
but that's not what you need
I care about you
but love's a much stronger word
and "I like you" really doesn't sum up
how much you're worth

I'm the last straw on the camel's back away
from saying those three words

I'm putting a message in this song
and I'll get everyone to sing along
Just to let you know how I feel
A valentine on mp3
yours forever,
less than three

You know I miss you
when my connection goes down
and I can't see your face to make it seem
like you came around
Those days without you
I find it harder to sleep
Even a half bottle of morgan's
couldn't make me complete

I'm the hair on the back of your neck's breadth away
from saying those three words

I'm putting a message in this song
and I'll get everyone to sing along
Just to let you know how I feel
A valentine on mp3
yours forever,
less than three

Take the distance from the depths of the deepest ocean
to the surface of pluto
and multiply by as far as you can count
and you'll still be nowhere near
you'll still have no idea
how much I want to hold you

I'm putting a message in this song
and I'll get everyone to sing along
Just to let you know how I feel
A valentine on mp3
yours forever,
less than three
Track Name: Hush
Hush now, darling
Don't cry for me
I miss you too
Perhaps more than you miss me
I'll see you soon
Don't you worry 'bout that
Play this song on repeat
until I come back

Same old story
Same tired routine
Kindred hearts
And all this distance in between
I'll write to you
every night that I can
And on some winter day
I'll hold you again

And all our patient waiting
Will be satisfied in that embrace
So I'm asking you,
Hush now, darling; wait

Hush, my darling
I'm thinking of you
Think of me
when e'er your heart seems rent in two
Worry not
I'm doing just fine
Knowing I am yours
and you are mine

So hush now, darling; listen
For I must impart one more truth
Just three simple words:
I love you
Track Name: Untitled (Can't Find The Words)
Sometimes I'm angry,
and sometimes I hurt
but mostly I miss you
and I can't find the words
If I say, 'I love you'
You misunderstand
You just say 'I love you'
You won't take my hand

I've been trying to tell you
in my words and my deeds
Just what you mean to me
But you're blind to my needs

I can tell you I love you
and it won't mean a thing
For the words may have meaning
but you're not listening
Still I stand on your shoulder
Light and darkness combined
Playing conscience and reason
Until we intertwine

Maybe I should forget you
Shut you out of my life
Take my refuge in darkness
Block out your light
Seek salvation in solace
Brave my heart in the cold
Keep your memory sacred
So you never grow old

Sometimes I'm angry,
and sometimes I hurt
but mostly I miss you
and I can't find the words
Track Name: Girl Can't Dance
They say a girl can get her guy
with moves so smooth
and a body to match
In a skin-tight dress
on the dance floor
is where she'll find a perfect catch

They say that anyone can dance
it's just a matter of
moving your body the beat
But I saw a girl on the floor tonight
with more than two left feet
and I said

That girl can't dance
she's just embarrassing herself
Look at her friends,
they're slowly edging away, because
That girl can't dance
and I think someone should tell her
but I won't tell her

I'm going into town tonight
Just want to hit some bars
and have a good time
And if I find the motivation
I might leave my fear of
dancing behind

And if I see that girl again
well maybe I'll think twice
Because if I remember rightly
she seemed like she'd be quite nice to talk to
but maybe we'll just stay away from the dancefloor tonight
Cos I've got these friends with me, they're a bit judgemental
and I don't want to hurt your feelings

That girl can't dance
she's just embarrassing herself
Look at her friends,
they're slowly edging away, because
That girl can't dance
and I think someone should tell her
Well, maybe I should tell her

So I edged up to her, all quiet,
when she was standing at the bar
and I said,
"Hey, didn't I see you here the other week?"
and she said,
"Oh yeah, I remember you,
you're the one they were talking about."
"Yeah? What were they talking about?"
And she said

'That boy can't dance
he's just embarrassing himself
What, does he think
that thing he's doing with his hands looks cool?
That boy can't dance
maybe someone should tell the fool,'
so I guess I just told you..."

Well.

That girl can't dance
but fuck it, neither can I
But I really like this tune
so I'm gonna do my best
That girl can't dance
but it don't stop her from dancing
and it won't stop me from dancing

Will it stop you from dancing?
No don't stop,
No don't stop dancing
Track Name: Epilogue (The Long Goodbye)
I sit alone in a darkened room
surrounded by these, my friends
Reflect upon the day gone past
though this is far from the end
I watch your face as shadows dance
and come to know you more
Knowing that in silence,
we've broken walls

By twilight, by candlelight
in silence, we discern
An epilogue, to a busy day in the life

I woke up this morning
and I knew I'd have to say goodbye
I put it from my mind
I ate my breakfast with my thoughts on other things
and it hit me a second time
But I'm not ready
to admit that it's time
I can't face
the long goodbye

By twilight, by candlelight
in silence, we discern
An epilogue, to a busy day in the life

And I am sure we'll meet again
And I hope that we'll be friends
This isn't goodbye,
it's closer to "see you soon"
I can't wait
to be once more in this room

By twilight, by candlelight
in silence, we discern
An epilogue, to a busy day in the life
