Track Name: Worlds Apart
Worlds Apart

I’ve seen
the world in which you live
and the heart of which you give
It’s a midnight winter forest
wind chills and sleeping animals
Living things still waiting for spring
But i wanted to go
I wanted to see everything

I’ve seen
the world in which you live
and the heart of which you give
It’s a silent river current
unpredictable and indifferent
surface aglow pulls me below
But i wanted to go
I wanted to give into it

And though you’re now far from me
I can still see you in my memory
Charming, frozen dark heart
quiet killing river
we’re worlds apart
How beautiful you are
how beautiful you are
But I’m gonna stay
I’m staying far, far, far
Track Name: Optimistic
Optimistic

I’d like to lay my head
Would you give me a chance
I’ll close my eyes in your bed
I want your future in my past

Let’s be optimistic
It’s a beautiful night,
there’s you and I
there’s a bottle of wine
and you seem very nice
We could give it a try
to see if it feels right
and if it does we might
have a good time

Do I look interested
I would give you a chance
It’s not complicated
I want your future in my past
Track Name: Can't remember the last time
Can’t Remember the Last Time

I have been thinking lately
sometimes life can be a bore
The room is full of haze
I feel strange
why am i prying up the floor

I can’t remember the last time
I didn’t want some of my own
I love being in your forest
take me there again
I need to know

What time is it
I’m late for work
But i don’t want to care
I want to eat this carrot
It would be grand
if you held my hand

I don’t want to leave here
I wish this was forever

I have been thinking lately
sometimes life can be a bore
The room is cold and changing colors
why can’t i get off the floor

I can’t remember the last time
I didn’t want some of my own
The trees, they’re dark
they’re pulling me in
they’re pulling and I don’t want to go

Where have i gone
I’m so far away
I can’t see where i came from
and I don’t know where I’m going
It would be grand
if you held my hand

I think i want to leave here
I wish that this was over
Track Name: I will
I Will

Oh
Did you know
when you met me
that I’d go
Did you know
did you know
that I won’t be back for some time

I’m going to the river
gold sun
and leaves of silver
I’m headed south to where I’ve never been
or to the north
plum full of hush to the brim

And I’ll send you a postcard
wishing you well
With a picture of the scenery
trees and sky and hills

And I’ll think of you
you know I will

Oh
Are you feeling low
cuz when I’m feeling low I remember
that life is long, long, long, long, long and slow
and you can’t be worried
You’ll enjoy it as you go
We’ll be alive for some time

I’m going to the river
I want to hold the gold sun
and breathe leaves of silver
I’m headed south
have you ever been
Or to the north
plum full of hush to the brim

And I’ll send you a postcard
wishing you well
with a picture of the scenery
the trees, the sky, the hills

And I’ll think of you
you know I will
Track Name: Never Feel the Cold
Press my hands to cold glass panes
Wind like waves against the frame
This place was built to keep me away
from the world
There’s no need
to feel unpleasant weather
there’s no need

I saw you in the street
while I was sitting in my dream
but I never catch your eye
Why would I try
when you mean nothing to me
and we’ll never, never meet
we’ll never meet

30 years or so
And 50 more to go
but i never feel the cold
Where would i go
where would i go

What I gather I throw away
I can’t keep what doesn’t stay
I watch the world take it away
What I once was
is not the same
as what I became
it’s not the same
Track Name: In My Mind
In My Mind

In the evening I can’t do a thing
Lay in my bed
watch the shadows slowly dancing
Corners softened, borders darkened
(Time is slipping by)
Like this often, wait for night’s end
(Waiting in my mind)

In the darkness I see pictures
Faces on the ceiling whisper
I can tell them anything
Just think my thoughts and send them drifting

In the morning I’m still waiting in my mind
Corners sharp, and time still slipping by
Borders bright will lead me to the day
Just think my thoughts and let them drift away
Track Name: Spell
Spell

Isn’t it a spell
to want you so
but to know you’re well
without me
and all the love I’ve saved up in the months that I’ve known

And I wouldn’t stare into your eyes
if I could find a way to be blind
to the charm of the things about you that I don’t know

Is this some kind of dream
to have you close
but to know you’ll leave
without me
and all the ways I could tell you that I don’t want you to go

And I wouldn’t hold my breath for you
if I could easily breathe my secret truth
and believe that this could be real for you too

Oh, isn’t it a spell
To know I was alone when I fell
Now I don’t know what to do
with all these thoughts of you in my head
What can I do
When this illusion of love is all that I have
Track Name: The Next Day's Fight
The Next Day's Fight

What do I see when I look outside
into the bright
the next day's fight

And when do I leave
this tunnel into the light
Let my trouble
out in the night

And what will I buy with my nickle and dime
if not my time
