Track Name: Another Place, Another Time
Hey, I've got some things to say, I've got some things to say
To say to you
I don't know if they're all true maybe one, maybe two
I've got some things to say to you
Your friends they all treat you like crap, they all listen to rap
I don't like them at allI have thought it all out, and I've thought with no doubt
I'll say it to you

In another place, another time, anywhere
So many faces, I don't know which one to stare at

Hey, I've got some things to say, I've got some things to say
To say to you
Please don't throw your life away, don't throw it all away, don't throw it all away
Your friends they all treat you like crap, they all listen to rap
I don't like them at all
I have thought it all out, and I've thought with no doubt
I'll say it to you

In another place, another time, anywhere
So many faces, I don't know which one to stare at
Track Name: Numbered
As the sound of the waves grew nearer
White wood washed my body from my bed
And the sounds of the kids in the skull caps
Swimming in my head

Deadly disappointment is turning my hair gray
And the only thing that's left to do is wait for someone to say, "I'm sorry"I'm just waiting for the day

Gratuitous gold
In my hair and on my clothes
None of the neon rapture, I'm growing old

You just don't wanna stay
Your feet are in the way

Your makeup was lost in the flood
Pick up your gems from the mud,
Beloved

Empathetic wishes and unrelenting sky
Whisper nothings as they pass me by
I'm waiting up in the night to hear it, the wind that makes me cry
Lift me up to see it, it's nothing to the eye
But the children who are passing by are looking up at the starts in nighttime
Reaching for the sky
You just don't wanna stay
Your feet are in the way

Your makeup was lost in the flood
Pick up your gems from the mud,
Beloved
Track Name: Cologne
Are you coming back in?
Are you waiting outside?
Are you waiting for me?
Are you gonna hide?

And we all fall down
And we hit the ground
Does it make a sound?

Though I'm always right
At the end of the night
Out comes the sun
When the moon is done
And we all fall down
And we hit the ground
Does it make a sound?

If the sun set down, in the center of our town
Where the lost boys and girls, could be found all around
Would you sit in the shadows? Would you come find my hand?
I've been looking all around, for a dear in demand
A dear in demand

And we all fall down
And we hit the ground
Does it make a sound?
Track Name: All the Fancy Houses (Extended Version)
I have waited for so, so long
Here I am writing songs for you
Oh, what a wonderful thing to do

I've been around here and there,
Went to the store in my underwear
How rude, when everybody stared

I have been in a fancy house,
Saw you in your fancy blouse
How you made me smile

If there's anything I need to do, it's love
If there's anything I need to do, it's love
If there's anything I need to do, it's love
If there's anything I need to do, it's love you

I woke up on your couch
Your mom and dad kicked me out of the house
What am I to do?

Ticking clocks, time to stop
The problems we had are all gone and whatnot
Well thanks, thanks to you

Well if you hold your breath, listen to what I have to say
I love you, my dear
And when you fall asleep, hold my hand, lie next to me
I'll be there, you'll see

If there's anything I need to do, it's love
If there's anything I need to do, it's love
If there's anything I need to do, it's love
If there's anything I need to do, it's love you

I have been in a fancy house,
Saw you in your fancy blouse
How you made me smile

(Transition)

All I want is to hold your hand
I hope that you can understand
Looking at the clouds up in the sky,
Letting out a great big sigh

Swimming inside my shower
Oh, how the rain makes me feel so sour
Printing your picture in a magazine
Oh, how these things make you seem so keen

Dancing under the Eiffel Tower
Did you know you're the girl of the hour?
Writing you a letter with a feather pen
Feeling so fancy now and then

Give me more reasons to,
Want to spend my time with you
All I ask is for a simple task,
Just tell me what to do

Go, I don't want you to go
Go, I don't want you to go

Sitting with you in my room
Listening to you, I consume
Every single word you say
And keep it in my mind the next day

Give me more reasons to,
Want to spend my time with you
All I ask is for a simple task,
Just tell me what to do
