Track Name: White Autumn Spiders
when i was young the summer felt so long
it's just a sign of age
one foot into the graveyard
and my whistle stops it's song
white autumn spiders
climb in from the cold afraid to die
climb in through my troubled winter mind

as kids we ran and vanished from the street
we knew where we should be
the sun snuck past the tree line
and we'd run back home to see
white autumn spiders
climbing through our windows from outside
climb in through my troubled winter mind

eventually
all my friends will leave
I need to know when time
gathers speed
you'll remember me

when all my memories are fading with the light
the leaves fall from the trees
this darkness in the evening
creeps in faster all the time
white autumn spiders
climb in through my troubled winter mind
Track Name: Little Mouse
echoing about
the walls of this glass house
the stirring of a mouse who's
cleaning off his snout
and singing

no no no no
there's nothing to worry about
no no no no
there's nothing to worry about

his nervous little hands
will wash then wash again
the hair stands on his neck
when somewhere from the darkness
a stranger calls his name and whispers

no no no no
there's nothing to worry about
no no no no
there's nothing to worry about

You silly little mouse
You Worried little mouse
What can you do?

with quiet hissing breath
the dark ophidian says
don't be afraid
don't be afraid
soon you will see
soon you will see
you're as guilty as me
Track Name: Little Bird
this little bird
this little bird, he sings for love
for love, for love
for love only

this gilded cage
this gilded cage betrayed my heart
for love, for love
please, don't take my song away from me

for love, for love
for love only
Track Name: When We Are Old
when we are old and you forget my name
will i be there when you are not the same
some make a vow and some swear on a plan
don't be so sure that i am such a man

i can't forgive myself
for things i've said out loud
you won't remember now anyway

when we are old and time has changed your mind
if you don't cry the day we say goodbye
would i be mad or would i understand
that all things must pass, all things must pass

i can't forgive myself
for things i've said out loud
you won't remember now anyway
Track Name: Lighten Your Load
I can't lift you from yourself
but i can try
to do what i can
to lighten your load
but there's not a soul
who can go and truly see your face
or define the define the things we are
or have been
so lets give up this silly little game
and we'll never be the same again

when your cravings give you pain
ill do what i can
to lighten your load
so you can let go
but there's not a soul
who can go and tell you what to do
or make your mind for you
old friend
so i'll give up my guru attitude
and i'll let you live for you again
Track Name: This Party Is No Fun Anymore
this party is no fun anymore
for the tablecloth stained with wine
as the glasses pang and knives collide
all night

the conversation turns to a toast
meant to anecdote how they met
napkins leap from laps so we can dress
our smiles

the music calls the eyes down toward the
lovers dancing slow
there's just two on the floor
this moment stings a little more than
any has before
it hurts to watch her go

so settle on the red and then pour
just a little more for the room
'till we speak in tongues that slur the truths
we hide
Track Name: Don't Be Cruel
I want to understand the reasons why
we make-believe the things we dare not try
there's murmurs in the ocean of a tremor coming from the other side
underneath the surface rarefaction just before the waves collide
don't be cruel
cause i am on your side
don't be cruel
cause i am on your side

such subtle movements when you're satisfied
syncopated rhythms when we're locked in stride
when the water rises we will climb up to the roof so we stay dry
you and I will watch our friends and families be swept up in the tide
don't be cruel
cause i am on your side
don't be cruel
cause i am on your side

when things I know don't match the way I act
when I cant see the things I'm looking at
when the water rises up above my head will you be at my side
I will hold my breath and i will count time until the waves subside
don't be cruel
cause i am on your side
don't be cruel
cause i am on your side
i am on your side
Track Name: Can't See The End
I can't see the end yet
I'm happy to ignore it
There’s such a long night ahead
Let's stay away forever

I’ll kiss your eyes
I’ll gently lie you down
I’ll tell you how
I’ll build a place where we can go
I’ll tell you all the secrets that I know

Then I’ll be quiet, silent
As much as I can manage
To keep these things in secret fear
A burden not to borrow

I’ll tell you lies
I’ll heavy hold you down
I’ll show you how
I'll break apart when times are tough
I'll leave before I give you any trust

But I can't see the end yet
I'm happy to ignore it
There’s such a long night ahead
Let’s stay awake forever
Track Name: Enough
in the morning
after my dream's breakup
just as I'm leaving
her pillow fills up
and I know
a kiss before I go
will have to be enough

in the evening
I've just begun to brush
the city from me
but she is rushing
out the door
a kiss before she goes
will have to be enough

as surely as the moon will watch the sunset in the evening
when every night the sky will fade to black
so she and I will waltz around in circles gently reaching
for a time when we can have each other back

when the bed light
and the TV crush
my eyes around me
my dreams will fill up
like a bowl
a kiss before I go
will have to be enough
