Drunk, I'm always drunk when I'm with you off to somewhere not quite real no one feels the way we feel Kiss me, we'll forget all about them, park under streetlights shadows, dark with your boxed wine, hours we steal I can't say I feel bad if my virtue is ill-clad on this barren ground we skirt around dwell the sainted and the mad But we've put an end to all that haven't we? Yes, we have transcended all that haven't we? Life is so long Slowly open up I can't help you score but I know what's in store: tender limbs splayed, bruised, cruel floor Touch me, don't forget what we swore was true: there's more than one way to love two there's more than one way I'll take you If not now, well, then when? see, I'd do it all again we're bright burning lights in the curtained night of life's starless mise-en-scene But we've put an end to all that haven't we? Yes, we have transcended all that haven't we? Life is so long Life is so long We'll forget all about them We'll forget all about them Life is so long Life is so long

New York City really got me down blood for everything to make the scene you fucked it up Screaming in my ear the only sound I wanted to hear clicks trading hits what you playing there? that ain't how it's supposed to go Casually and caustically you're severing the string connecting us we'd pieced together out of almost nothing No, I won't know your name and things will never be the same And when we ever meet again I won't remember I won't pretend I'm not your unfriend (Je dis cela en français pour ne pas te fâcher) Avant, je pensais que tu étais une de ces femmes qui se décrivaient comme 'folle' comme un affect. Tu sais, pour avoir un air captivant, mystérieux. Aujourd'hui, je connais la vérité. When I asked for rent you sold my amp splitting, pissing mad like you'd been had not ripped me off First blush wet crush hard chemical rush spreading wide and far now, who they are don't matter much I'm not who you think I am Static and impermanent oblivious to all our lamentations steeled against our soft pleas of "return, please" No, I won't know your name and things will never be the same I'll never be the same And when we ever meet again I won't remember I won't pretend I'm not your unfriend Your really got me down I won't pretend I'm not your unfriend

Come to me I just can't get enough of you come again I just can't get enough of you hold me close tighter still fill me up Martyrs die for heaven in the afterlife while lovers vie for pardons by a beggar's tithe wonderlands paradise in our hands To them we're just instrumental functionaries to use No-Blues Devices to linger turned on by the touch of a finger Come to me I just can't get enough of you I submit I'll never get enough of you hit it 'n' quit it, then once again We'll put on "Champagne Sunrise" and swallow the morning dew what's true them casuists wonder: white beauties and beauty to plunder I just can't get enough of you

I hitched down to the stables to have fun with the lads perhaps they'd be able to get drinks I'm in a terrible fix now I'm in a terrible fix Well, life is for living but life is a bore and I've not one misgiving wanting more But I'm in a terrible fix now I'm in a terrible fix and I want to go home Lend me the cab fare or lend me your shoes give me a lecture or abuse but, please, help me get home now please, help me get home I'm in a terrible fix and I want to go home Yes, I was born in the usual way: the doctors struck and stole me straight-away I cried and cried and shall 'till my last day no thanks to you, 'neath the causeway

When the faintest of wind blows this soft architecture bows out of plum and out of plane to collapse under the strain Blacking out inner distress feigning outer otherness Here are we possibly then you're gone Cold, reflecting plastic glaze out of time and out of phase play your wet eyes, flat then sharp upon hard street logic's harp Golden ages' song aloft unheard, supple, pure and soft Here we are near/so far then I'm gone Here are we possibly then we're gone

Why you've still got your looks what's the use of books? lock up the dorm we'll go I'd like to take your mind off your cares we'll brush off their stares I know a place where we can be alone Is he the one that you mean? pretend he's not been seen quick out the back my bike is 'round the way I'll give you a lift my friend will work my shift it's been arranged Let me whisper in your ear though love is too costly I fear While I've still got some time come on it's hardly nine don't make me whine or mope I'd like to ease your mind of your doubts upon this couch relax, can't you see we're all alone? The coffee shop or the square love, I'll meet you there yes, quite the pair we'll make there strolling 'bout throughout all the town in secrecy we're bound play we're just friends Let me whisper in your ear though love is too costly I fear Let me whisper in your ear... What's there to do at this hour, I wonder? What's there to do at this hour? You should be home in bed

It's just a broken musicbox that plays "Feelings" they're nothing more than feelings Friends gone everyone gone how you gonna get on? who you gonna lean on? I set it aside to repair but how? you fled for cheaper rent down south so now ow! I'm bleeding a brand new design new signals new signs It's just a broken musicbox that plays "Feelings" they're nothing more than feelings Endless schemes resource extractor flaked-out dreams traitor, detractor abuser, devotion user -out! Friends gone everyone gone how you gonna get on? who you gonna lean on? Don't you recall you left it when you split more junk abandoned now where'd I put it? I spit The self-help books you read a wrong new music, old song They're nothing more than feelings they're nothing more than feelings...

Milk-Aisle smiles misread on your pretty head and “The Milk-Eyed Mender”’s repeating that “your a good friend” embrace and your pensive face starts my tired, defeated heart beating And I don’t want to believe you but then I look in your eyes I believe you No, I don’t want to believe you say it’s not true, babe say it’s not true Far too many boys and the basement noise sends us upstairs for dire distracion did I say separately? you didn’t talk to me except that fleeting stairs interaction And I don’t want to believe you but then I see what you do I believe you No, I don’t want to believe you say it’s not true, babe say it ain’t true Your generation’s so laissez-faire how can a man get tangled up in your hair? the neighbor stares and it’s all laid bare how can a boy like that get to touch you there? I’ve tried indifference tried not to care I’ve tried ignoring your verve and your fearless stare your peerless curves and your strident air how can a man like me get mixed up in your affairs? I don’t know, I don’t know I don’t know Fantasy, strategy a minor tragedy a monumental miscalculation I didn’t even cross your mind best to reiterate: I didn’t cross your mind all vacation And I don’t want to believe you but then I hear what you say I believe you No, I don’t want to believe you say it’s not true No, I don’t want to believe you but then I look in your eyes I believe you I don’t want to believe you say it’s not true but I know that it’s true

"City, Fair" 03:58
City, fair where shall I take my supper? amongst the cue? oh, dear City, fair who'll buy these rags from my back? for a song won't you sing a long? And is there not a soul to save? just gallows poles 'fore a dear unmarked grave will no one condescend to brave our company? City, fair where shall I lay my pillow? along the tracks? oh, no City, fair divided by this river I can't get o'er nor have I wings to fly And is there not a heart that beats? just daggered toughs and black ops on the streets will no one patronized dare meet our bare necessity? No, I can't see the stars no, I can't see the stars City lights keep on blindin' keep on blindin' City lights keep on blindin' keep on blindin'...

Rules benders genders breaking our love was made for making cock-rocker been caught stealing “love alive”? -- you copped a feeling love a lie, you auto-replay “One Man Guy” now and I’m not the man I was but boys do cry and I’ll never forgive you I don’t know why but I’m still in love with you still in love with you baby, baby Deal-breaker Prospect faker on the take, still had to make her glass doorway opaque reason open legs and open treason I wave my fuck-it flag, you wear your love like heaven now and I’m not your woman was I anyhow? and I’ll never forgive you I don’t know why but I’m still in love with you still in love with you baby, baby I don’t know why but I’m still in love with you...
