Too Soon 01:17
TOO SOON You will have us figured out soon Too soon You will have to leave For a new love A new love somewhere else But stick around for as long as you like We will be here Spend some time in the sun

WHERE DAMAGE ISN’T ALREADY DONE You are raining in I can’t escape that feeling You’re dripping into the buckets I have placed Where damage isn’t already done I saw you on bus 15 Heading north to take the train Everyone looks the same Still we have different names

Keen On Boys 04:53
KEEN ON BOYS Already dead So kill my head There’s a sun in his eyes It won’t go away I’m already dead Why is it I can’t kill my… He would never sleep Said I didn’t mind that at all Made me feel quite cheap Looking back on it all Then there was a kiss He said that he couldn’t resist And was I aware of what I missed That night I slept on his couch With my back turned to the wall Nothing assumed but you know? You know… In the morning we said nothing at all All I could think of was this He said that he couldn’t resist And was I aware of what I missed?

WHY WON’T YOU TALK ABOUT IT I’m losing I’ll lose my mind You don’t know how you want it I’m losing I’ll lose my mind You don’t know how you want it I don’t know how you want it Why won’t you talk about it?

IT’S BEEN EIGHT YEARS It’s been eight years I’d like to travel through time But I can’t do that I never knew that good experiences Could cause a pain like this I want something that I can’t have I close my eyes and someone is calling my name I lean over the window pane And in the distance I can just about catch a glimpse of us We had a ball We had it all

Bus 02:58
BUS You need to take that bus Goodbyes aren’t all that good Mother is a mess What are you gonna do if nothing happens? Nothing happens Nothing happens Nothing happens around here any more Leaving the girls behind Goodbyes aren’t all that good Daddy says you’ll be fine But what is he gonna say if nothing happens?

1995 03:12
1995 1995 is missing buses It’s walking 15 miles to see your love It’s knowing you’re alive through all that fuzz It’s never coming down from going up 1995 is cutting classes It’s sitting over coffees talking indie treats It’s the mere sensation of being the first one that you see When morning opens up the skies You see me when daylight opens up your eyes And though I’m happier now I always long somehow Back to 1995 All my friends have different plans to make their lives worth while Some for the better Some for worse Some have gone to different cities searching every mile Foer missing pieces that will make a whole 1995 seems like a long way to go If you ever were to find your way back home But the only thing that I really miss is being the first one that you see When morning opens up the skies You see me when daylight opens up your eyes

AGAINST THE TIDE Falling against what you know Falling against the tide Oh what you want Is it what you want? Is this what you want? Because we are young And things are wrong We’ll lose the chains We’ll make things right Before the sun goes down on us And out of sight We’ll lose the chains Cause you and I We move against the tide
10.
STRANGE THINGS WILL HAPPEN Today was a pretty day No disappointments No expectations on your whereabouts And oh, did I let you go? Did it finally show that strange things will happen if you let them? Today I didn’t even try to hide I’ll stay here and never push things to the side You can’t reach me cause I’m way beyond you today Today was a pretty day Autumn comes with These slight surprises where you life might twist and turn Hope to unlearn Strange things will happen If you let them come around and stick around Today I didn’t even try to hide I’ll stay here and never push things to the side Today I didn’t even look to find Something to put me in that peace of mind You can’t touch me cause I’m way beyond you today

Your Father 04:01
YOUR FATHER The fire caught us burning with desire to get out in the open My daddy had a camera and he caught a few moments to show them The fire took us higher We were hoping to expire when you came in With water We were only kids when we first laid eyes on eachother Everything was great but you should have warned me about your father At first he took the crap But I soon learned not to even bother With your father Now that you’re away I’m jerking off every day to your memory You finding someone else was a real blow Who will defend me I’m drinking every day but try to behave the same way I did before But it’s hard It’s oh so hard

Ewan 02:24
EWAN You’ve spent some time in the morning sun But what goes up must come down And you can feel sunshine fading And it’s to soon but you’re stuck waiting It’s painful cause you won’t let go One mouthful and you want more When you’ve felt so fine you just can’t fake it When nothing comes you catch and break it
13.
LOST AND FOUND I’m scared when I’m at home In my apartment on my own It’s changing colours through the day It don’t bother me when I’m ok But now when all is changed around I’m buried in the lost and found I like to watch things on tv And tell your ghost to let me be I know I can choose a different life And be off with you tonight But where you are going I cannot follow I know you hate this but I hold on To this life that I embrace Despite amusements that I chase So I’ll see you some day I’ll see you some day See you some day
