Track Name: The City and the City
picture me
on the weekend
if somethings changed
what will i spend

with your friends
inverting time
if pieces fit
then what's the crime

for swimming
the undertow
the drag is deep
but then you know

we'll drink soft
and release hard
i'm fucking glad
you're so in charge


a bastard
will surely rise
with fumbled hands
to broken eyes

they watch you
inside your room
as if it's mine
or will be soon

a magpie
you cock and crow
the drag is deep
but then you know

the reasons
you never lied
and all the same
i never cried

picture me
if you still can
it's been a while
i understand

the reasons
you left behind
the pieces fit
and thats the crime

to stay here
nothing to show
the drag is deep
but then you know

it's well played
to walk away
no matter what
i'm told you'd say
Track Name: 50 Sets of Beestings
now look what you've done
to all your old clothes
well, i've seen the photographs
or was it the shows
so let's just take our time
and regret everything
or maybe just go for drinks

straw men burn
wait your turn

the songs that you sing
not quite out of key
our glass is half empty
or maybe thats me
so lets pick up the phone
and then hang up again
we'd have lost it all yesterday

straw men burn
wait your turn

so where did you go
i've waited for weeks
was that your apartment
it all seems a bit brief
so lets relearn our lines
and repeat history
we'd have lost it all yesterday

straw men burn
wait your turn
x2
Track Name: Pas de Duex
we're drinking our doom
but it's not that safe
when your not alone

and making your plans
may help you escape
but i'm not afraid


it's only a touch
a dream you live once
but you're not alone

i've said this before
i don't want you to know
and maybe you won't


but when i return
i don't want you to see
that it's not too late

you're holding your breath
but you learned to dance
when you were a child

and watching the moon
may help you to sleep
but your not alone

it's only a touch
a dream you live once
but i'm not afraid


i've said this before
i don't want you to know
and maybe you won't

but when i return
i don't want you to see
that it's not too late
x3
Track Name: Small Smiles
i guess i should say this
right where you are
but beginning in mazes
just broke your heart
while these summary phrases
stick in your eyes
it's a matter of ages


if we can't sleep
under the stars
then we'll at least
fall asleep inside them


my simplest namesake
stay where you are
while you're turning your pages
and blaming art
all these beautiful places
still in your eyes
with the faces of strangers


if we can't sleep
under the stars
then we'll at least
fall asleep inside them


i guess i should say this
right where you are
but beginning in mazes
just broke your heart
i can still hear you saying
don't let me down
lets forget what we're made of

if we can't sleep
under the stars
x150
Track Name: Cattle Drive
our fires begun to fade
or maybe it's dark outside
but you never hesitate
and you feel so warm tonight

i'll read 'til you fall asleep
and then follow after you
we'd wake in the morning light
but there's never light in here
and so i forget to breathe
and time slips away a while
as smoke trails from your lips
and i cannot stop your smile


but you say we'll meet again
you say we'll meet, again
and you say we'll meet, again


so, this is my cattle drive
the distance between us all
or maybe just an excuse
or maybe just an excuse

i'll buy you a wedding gift
and sit by the open bar
and then we all say goodnight
and then we all say goodnight
Track Name: High Horse
christmas roses mark the year
fading in and out of mind
roller skates and empty rhymes
cool as kissed, she explains lives
and while the frame begins with time
on the day the past is breath
whispered hands upon your neck
winters weight still hanging there


take the lover you watch inside your mirror
but a bleeding heart won't win you friends here
as your répertoire slowly disappears


so in love with what you've done
you can't see anyone
and you're so sure your time has come
like your rabbits on the run
so lets take it back to one
and see who's having fun
watch the parts destroy the some
as if you're the lucky one


take the lover you watch inside your mirror
but a bleeding heart won't win you friends here
as your répertoire slowly disappears


what a way to spend my time
silver tongued and empty eyed
watching trains pass in the night
such a fucking awful light


take the lover you watch inside your mirror
but a bleeding heart won't win you friends here
as your répertoire slowly disappears
