Happy Accident


There's a lot of things I could have done
Little tokens of my love
That I was always saving up to spend
It's the thought that counts, I guess
Even ones that don't make sense
Even when it's easy to forget

To much time for the self-employed
I heard you scream in your mother's voice
So afraid you'd become her in the end
You want a life that you cannot live
But that is what keeps you competitive
Throw another shower for a friend

Tell me where it is
Because I'm looking for their happiness
C'mon, tell me where it is
For the sake now of the argument
C'mon, tell me where it is
Because I'm looking for their happiness
C'mon, tell me where it is
Because I'm looking

Not yet a mother but a good complex
You like the boys when they're scared of sex
What a shame that they grow up to be men
Well, maybe father does know best
And that's the reason why he left
All your pride to the last ditch you defend

It took a while to accept our fate
And all the chance it eliminates
Once we did there was nothing to pretend
Always say there's a time and place
So maybe ours will consolidate
If they do I will greet you as a friend

You can show me where it is
Because I'm looking for your happiness
C'mon, show me where it is
Now you found it all by accident
C'mon, show me where it is
Because I'm looking for your happiness
C'mon, tell me where it is
Because I'm looking

I Know You


walking with you through the courtyard
where everything's marble and smooth
you said the idea of perfection
was just fundamentally cruel
and talked about joining the circus
and trading your face for a mask

oh i know you want to
i just don't believe that you can

we made quite a pair in the morning
we both tend to traffic in dreams
seeing it now from the outside
you kept all your dark ones for me
and said that you plan to go rambling
as you sat on that big windowsill

oh i know you want to
i just don't believe that you will

you long to go hide in the bramble
or fall off the face of the earth
you wish you could live with the beggars
on the steps of some crumbling church
you say that you'd like to go hungry
but the truth is you just had your fill

oh i know you want to
i just don't believe that you will

on sundays, you stroll through the market
and feel like you've traveled through time
buying back all your possessions
that were stolen in some former life
returned to me, tied in a corset
to say "don't you know who i am?"

oh i know you want to
i just don't believe that you can
yes, i know you want to
i just don't believe that you can

been trying to make an invention
something the world's never seen
to sweep away all of the trouble
and leave the place shiny and clean
patent your brave new creation
and hold it right there in your hand

oh i know you want to
i just don't believe that you can

i waited for you at the landing
the water was crystal and calm
all these ideas of forever
are just fundamentally wrong
you say that your love makes you honest
then you're caught with your hand in the till

oh i know you want to
i just don't believe that you will
yes, i know you want to
i just don't believe that you will

Black Comedy


Well once I gave a look to you but you never gave it back
So here I stand expressionless but my memory's intact
I guess the past is good for a laugh
A comedy so dry and black
It makes my stomach hurt so bad, I cried
So two thumbs up we give this one despite its predictable ending
The dialogue seemed rushed and wrong but the actors did their best
To lay some worth on every word
Like coffins dropped into the earth
The saddest sound I ever heard, we sang along
We sang it, take this wait away
We sang it, take this wait away
We sang it, take this wait away
Away
Away

I'll Be Your Friend


You said they laid out lots of coke
You don't know how much you did
Now you dont want me to go home, because you're afraid you might get sick
Just like the bad news you accept, just like that boy you're gonna get
It's the mistake I wont regret, I'll be your friend
But you just haven't made me yet
So you come chasing after me, but I'm just barely out the door
Down in the belly of the beast, we waited with the passengers
Just like the train I gotta catch, just like that song I can't finish
You'll be my friend but I hope I just haven't made you yet
You talk like you're drunk, like you're standing in front of a microphone
And each night it repeats and you fall into me, like a domino
And you talk when you're drunk like you're writing it up for a article
And you think that I lie when I tell you goodbye and then I've got to go, cause I've got to go
But I guess it's a success, we're at our best when you're upset
I'll be your friend but you just haven't made me yet

Spring Cleaning


Amy's got a baby in her stomach, she took my hand and I felt it kick
So she's crying and glowing, she's three months and showing
Seeing her now makes me want to live
But her man's got an angry mouth, he once told me to rot in hell
He's poisonous, reasonless, demons and Jesus, if he died it'd be just as well
So I'm having it out with the rain
It argues so long and so loud
It keeps tapping and talking we're walking forever on First Avenue headed south
And all the traffic lights blur into a bright bouquet
My heart is in mothballs, it's been packed away, and I can't get to it, no way
Until the birds return for spring cleaning
All the traffic lights blur into a bright bouquet
I wish I could just turn and walk away, but I can't do it, no way
Until the birds return for spring cleaning
