Track Name: After All
After all

If you could feel it
A life spilled all around
Your little world and
You just step outside to

Think about things
It’s easier to wait
And maybe lose them and leave it all behind

Refrain:
It’s not the time to wake up
Alone and drunk in your car
After all
We’d tear down
little walls
We’ve built inside
It’s not the time to wake up
Alone and drunk in your car
After all
We’d tear down
little walls
We’ve built inside

If you could feel that
Pathetic breath that’s
All around your cowardly world
And that mess you’ve built inside

Think about things
It’s easier to wait
And maybe lose them and leave it all behind
Track Name: Had Me at Hello
Had Me at Hello

You had me at hello
With your shiny teeth
And those leather boots

Bruising me every step we go
Then catch me with a smile
Oh I know I’m yours tonight

Refrain:
Voices calling you
You walk the line
Voices calling you
Places following you
You walk the line
Places following you

I got you at hello
With my shiny eyes
And leather boots

Be on top of that tiny world
Everybody knows
I follow you every step you go
Track Name: Red Shirt & Blue Jeans
Red Shirt and Blue Jeans

Honey this town is a prison. You want so badly to disappear
And you’ll leave as soon as you will find just that one good reason.
You couldn’t get away from that place you’ve been thinking of
Gently changing things you don’t wanna lose at all

Refrain:
I told her I’d be there
With paper flowers in my hands
I’ll wear a red shirt and blue jeans
When we meet again

And it’s quiet in your hometown in the streets where you used to dance
And it’s quiet inside this room where we used to talk about our reasons
And your never be the same when you return on Christmas Eve
And I’ve never felt the same when you returned on Christmas Eve

Refrain:
I told her I’d be there
With paper flowers in my hands
I’ll wear a red shirt and blue jeans
When we meet again

Bridge:
In the middle of a perfect move we have to stop
We both knew we couldn’t turn back to the start

With paper flowers in my hands
I’ll wear a red shirt and blue jeans
When we meet again


Refrain:
I told her I’d be there
With paper flowers in my hands
I’ll wear a red shirt and blue jeans
When we meet again
Track Name: Demons
Demons

In motel rooms I stare at holes and
Get drunk in the morning – “Sun!”

‘Cos I hate to sleep alone
Drag myself down to the floor
Cause I hate to sleep at all
Myself inside secret walls

Pre-Chorus:
All, all I know I need a minute to let go

Refrain:
I’m sorry I’m just wasted
And I’m walking in my sleep
I hang around with my demons
Rushing through these streets

Wanna climb a mountain
And all the people cheer and clap
Break up at front doors
And all the people cheer and clap

Pre-Chorus:
All, all I know I need a minute to let go

Refrain:
I’m sorry I’m just wasted
And I’m walking in my sleep
And I hang around with my demons
Rushing through these streets
Track Name: Closer
Closer

Peel away your tired skin
Put on your white blazers
I must soon declare a war
Just to get closer

And we should all
lay down in the arms
In the arms of the pale girl


Refrain:
Tear out these bursting bones
Get into vintage cars
It’s coming closer
We’re coming closer

I bite my mitts off today
Just to get closer
we should all
lay down in the arms
In the arms of the pale girl


Refrain:
Tear out these bursting bones
Get into vintage cars
It’s coming closer
We’re coming closer
Track Name: Cut & Run
Cut & Run

For month I’ve been asking
What’s beneath this hairy face? And
The sound of the doorbell
A way out of the bed

Fight with Maria
As we met him with the kids down at the mall
And I was absent
While she pelted me with words

Bridge:
Life’s practising on you
So you decide to run
And you’re out for summer and another one

Refrain:
Stay low, stay quiet and get outside
These streets swallow the rest and
So you fell behind…

Feel the beat of the sidewalk
Faces flashing through my sight
In the edge of my temple
I feel fine and get alright

I get drunk with this chubby blonde and
Later on, I was fucked.
In the edge of my temple
I feel fine and get alright
