Track Name: Melody
How was I
Ever to know
That this is how it all would go?
That she'd end up on a tattooed arm
With some guy whose name is Jean De Charme

Melody Nelson
That’s what it said
It had a baby with a snake right through its head
Reminding me that he's so cool
That he never ever follows the rules

No, I never really had a chance
From the minute that she flew to France
And learned about the true romance

So how was I
Supposed to know
The bad boy always gets the girl
That she'd end up with a tattooed Jean
And I'd be dreaming of her ten years on

Melody Nelson
Is that a name?
I had to look it up I di'n'-know-'bout Jane
Reminding me I'm so uncool
They never taught me about Serge in school

No, I never really had a chance
From the minute that she flew off to France
And learned about the true romance

No, I never really had a chance
From the minute that she flew off to France
And learned about the true romance

No, I never really had a chance
I should have followed her right off to France
To learn about the true romance
Track Name: Pale Blue Eyes
September summer, scent of sea
You and me under that tree
The sky in your pale blue eyes
The tulip petals were our little spies

"There’s no need to look away
We can stay and stare all day
We can stay. It's calm
We can stay. It's calm right through your eyes."

And from that day
You scared my ghosts away
Help me keep it that way

"This one chance is all we'll have"
I said to you. It made you laugh.
"Hush" you said. "Just come along."
"Hush" you said. "Just come with me."

"This one chance is all we need"
You said to me. I did not see
That you were right. You knew
That you were right. You knew a love serene.

And from that day
You scared my ghosts away
Help me keep it that way

"This one chance is all we'll have"
I said to you. It made you laugh.
"Hush" you said. "Just come along."
"Hush" you said. "Just come with me."
Track Name: Portland Head Light
And you're well
And you're true
Then you're you once again
In a cell
And it's you and you're true and you kill
Yes you kill well
And it's you when you wake up
First you're so wise then you're throwing the whole thing to hell
And it's you and you drown in the sand

Seven times she tried to show me how to love
Seven times I tried to let myself be loved
Smooth out all the grain
Paint away the waves, the clouds, the rain
Till there’s no pain

And you'll come
And you'll run
But you're you once again
Then you pray
'cause the ghosts always play with their prey.
Yes you pray well
But it’s you when you wake up
First you're so wise then you're throwing the whole thing to hell
And you've come and you run in the sand

Seven times she tried to show me how to love
Seven times I tried to let myself be loved
Smooth out all the grain
Paint away the waves, the clouds, the rain
Till there’s no pain

One more time I'll try to show you how to love
Now you'll find the way to let yourself be loved:
Just let me hold you now
Feel today the waves, the clouds, the rain
Enjoy the pain
Track Name: Traction
What you have in yourself
And what you’re saying to me
It’s irrelevant: yesterday, oh.
Through and through yeah we’ll be one, too
Sit where you are
You ‘re fine
And I love you more

Never never repent here
When you’re talkin’ to me
Ever goin’ this way - you will laugh
It’s you in heaven
If you want to
Sun and wine, it’s you and you’re meant to.

I want you to be me
Try to understand
You’re my traction in the sand

What you have in yourself
And what you’re tryin’ to be
It’s irrelevant: yesterday, oh.
Through and through, oh, we’ll be one, too
Sit where you are
You ‘re fine
And I love you more

Never never be sad here
When you’re talkin to me
Ever goin’ this way - you will laugh:
It’s you in heaven
If you want to.
Sun and wine, it’s you and you’re meant to.

I want you to be me
Try to understand
You’re my traction in the sand
Track Name: It's Over
Watch how she takes me
Oh when she takes me
It’s over

“Won’t you be happy?”
Shakin’ and cryin’
It’s over

“Don’t you worry”
Take me to die now.
It’s fictional why I cried and I sighed cause tonight
What she’s going t’do with it, oh babe
Sister knows it she ties me and help
Gonna do it tonight

“We’re gonna make it, oh we’re gonna make it alright”
Don’t you wanna make me alright?
“We’re gonna make it, oh we’ll make it better tonight”
We’ll lie there and we won’t make a sound

Watch where she takes me
Oh when she takes me
It’s over

“It’s only a moment”
I know right this moment
It’s over

Is it love when
She takes me to die oh?
It’s physical but it ends all my sighin’ and fright
What she’s goin’ t’do with it, oh babe
Sister knows it she ties me and help
Gonna do it tonight

We’re gonna make it, oh we’re gonna make it alright
Don’t you wanna make me alright?
We’re gonna make it, oh we’ll make it better tonight
We’ll lie there and we won’t make a sound
Track Name: Once
Once is how you always start a song
Once is how you always move along

Once you had, Once you could
Once you did, Once you should have done

Once is how we always love and live
Once is how we always share and give

Once we will, Once we should
Once we'll know, Once we should have known

Cause it's your time
It's your day
I'm just looking over the horizon
To find the truth in the setting sun
Cause Suzy's gone

Once is how you always end a song
Once is how you always end a song

Once you had, Once you could
Once you did, Once you should have done
Track Name: Only a Test
I used to go without my scars
I knew my way without the stars
I'd climb up high they'd watch me go
Stealing glances from below
They only want a piece of me
Just one look and they are free

this is only a test

I walked alone without the weight
I knew a heart without the hate
I saw them watch me from below
Stealing chances just to show
I want to share a piece of me
Take one look and I am free

But now
as they say
ten years can really fly by in a day
And all that's left
Is this cigarette
Reminding me
That what you have is not only what you see

this is only a test
Track Name: Diffraction
I don't mind the autumn coming
I don't mind when winter's here
I don't mind the wind is humming
I don't mind I'm filled with fear

I don't mind that she's not coming
I don't mind when she's not here
I don't mind my mind is humming
I don't mind I'm nowhere near

I don't mind I'm filled with fear
I don't mind I'm nowhere near

Diffraction, oh so beautiful
Right through the bars and gates
Track Name: It's Over feat. Viki Singh
Watch how he takes me
Oh when he takes me
It’s over

“Won’t you be happy?”
Shakin’ and cryin’
It’s over

“Don’t you worry”
Take me to die now.
It’s fictional why I cried and I sighed cause tonight
What he’s going t’ do with it, oh babe
Sister knows it, he ties me and help
Gonna do it tonight

“We’re gonna make it, oh we’re gonna make it alright”
Don’t you wanna make me alright?
“We’re gonna make it, oh we’ll make it better tonight”
We’ll lie there we won’t make a sound

Watch where he takes me
Oh when he takes me
It’s over

“It’s only a moment”
I know right this moment
It’s over

Is it love when
He takes me to die oh?
It’s physical but it ends all my sighin’ and fright
What he’s goin’ t’do with it, oh baby
Sister knows it he ties me and help
Gonna do it tonight

We’re gonna make it, oh we’re gonna make it alright
Don’t you wanna make me alright?
We’re gonna make it, oh we’ll make it better tonight
We’ll lie there we won’t make a sound
Track Name: Pavement (digital bonus track)
I sat all day on the pavement
Singing a song
A song of freedom
Ashamed to be alive
I had to let it out

First you gave to me, then you took away
To make sure I loved you in the right way
“We find ourselves in heaven”
Won’t see you anymore

Nothing's the same now
Nothing's the same now
No No No

I sat all day on the pavement
Singing in a song
A song of freedom
Ashamed to be alive
I had to let it out

Put out your hand now
Nothing's the same now
No No No
Track Name: Thoughts of You (digital bonus track)
The sunshine blinded me this morning love
Like the sunshine love comes and goes again
I love you I love you
The sea air it's flowing through my room again
Like the thoughts of you fill my heart with joy again

I'm sorry
I miss you

All things that live one day must die you know
Even love and the things we hold close
Look at love look at love look at love
Look what we've done

Loneliness is a very special place
To forget is something that I've never done
Silently, silently you touch my face
