Supermarket 03:31
In the glow of the supermarket I want to feel like I'm in my own dream again I miss the kiss of your first attraction I want to be in sleepless love again Time and time again Time and time again I will find you Moving in just to move out later If you'll help me I will move to anywhere you say I want to live in the supermarket I want to feel that glow turn night to day Time and time again Time and time again I will find you Lucky me I found you too You turned around and found me too Thank you

There's no such thing as karma Or what others like to call fate What you give is irrelevent And what you get is random weight New year's eve in the warmest house Away from snow but you can look out Another chance, another sigh Another random reason why You can't believe in 'meant to be' Unless you face the consequence With any luck you've made it here And what you've gained is confidence New year's eve in the warmest house Away from snow but you can look out Another chance, another sigh Another year is passing by And we go on And we go on and on and on...

This Time 04:33
Tell me again you are So I can remember all I've only just gotten back And I can hear your call The way your eyes would shine How do I hold this time? In a deeper shade of blue You're pulling me right through Tell me again you are So I can feel again With your arms around I can feel again The way your eyes would shine How do I hold this time? In a deeper shade of blue You're pulling me right through I'd hate to wake you up Now that you're asleep But I only want more time To hold you in my arms I'd hate to wake you up Now that you're asleep But I only want more time To hold you in my arms If you're lost in troubled dreams I am here for you If you're inconsolable I'll hold you until it's through More than anything, never doubt I am More than anyone, never doubt I do

I'll measure every step you take I'll tell you what we'll make On Saturdays awake We'll sit in what's been spilled today We'll laugh at yesterday When love's asleep we'll say Is this life? Or can we skip this? The windows sick and start to shake Another snow globe loved and breaks On Saturday's mistake It's gone from April into May The rain's washing chalk away On someone's summer's day Is this life? Or can we skip this? Is this real life?

Say it again because you want to The words sound real when you say them Although it sounds so familiar Your voice is all I can hear Say it again because you want to Tell me again and I'll need to Around and round I'll believe you Your voice is just my favorite sound Say it again because you need to Change it around until it's different Play it again if you have to But I've got to say I'll see you there Say it again because you have to Tell me again and I'll need to Why do I keep forgetting all those Things you say you've said before? In my dreams I'm redeemed, I stare at seams In my dreams I stare at seams I listen to Seam Are You Driving Me Crazy - yet? It's just a question It's not a question of trust Now that you mention it It's a question of trust Everything you feel good about Should be examined from a different perspective, mind you Everything you feel good about

Wound 04:31
I wear this uneasiness Like promises in empty rooms Distracting us, nothing but dust I cough and scratch, I cling to walls In secrecy I fall apart A failing breath, collapsing heart I blend until I disappear This silent hall, this emptiness I've got this one thing on my mind I've got to keep from losing you I've got this one thing in my life I've got to keep from falling through I wear this like it's my own A fine wound, so much to lose This borrowed book, this piercing look I cough and scratch, I cling to walls In secrecy I fall apart A failing breath, collapsing heart I bleed until I disappear This silent hall, this emptiness I've got this one thing on my mind I've got to keep from losing you I've got this one thing in my life I've got to keep from falling through Don't you say a word, don't say a word Don't say it

Worry 03:45
I worry for you /// as if that's all I can do /// I worry for you /// for all the good that can do /// I worry for you, /// as if that's all I can do /// I worry for you, /// and what good does that do? /// What good does that do?

You can't tell me now, what I was meant to do We fall into ourselves, like only real things do Afraid I'll get it wrong Face to face and here I am just hesitating If you've known this all along I know you're right but I'm not sure why you've been waiting You should never say goodbye... Once the message has been sent The words aside, the messenger has been pinpointed If everyone's your friend, then why are you so disappointed? You should never say goodbye... You'll find your way in time, like people somehow do You'll bend to meet the line But I'll never know why you would want to You should never say goodbye... You should never say

Do you ever wonder what people say about you when you're not around? He had a mother, another week or two you'll start to hear the sound How does it feel when you're dead and you find out Everyone was your best friend now? He was like a brother, with loves and fears and something No one else could say There is no other, there's no replacement for it No one else could say How does it feel when you're dead and you find out Everyone loves your band now? It's so reductive when you say it, words will never do Now without you, I'm someone's nothing with someone else's view Do you ever wonder what people say about you when you're not around? He had a mother, another week or two you'll start to hear the sound How does it feel when you're dead and you find out Everyone loves your best friend now?

Tablecloth 04:33
You've got an awful habit of telling off the room I hide beneath the tablecloth and pretend I don't know you In and out of conversation you get angry then you're bored I should've known this was bound to happen, I just hoped we were something more I paint a mask of patience as you fight for the floor It never dries in time so it always cracks and wears off on me You shoot yourself in the foot, and yell at yourself, Play victim but you're fooling no one You've got an awful habit, and now we've run out of rooms I can't tell you, I can't tell you What you want to, what you need to hear Do you think that you'll let yourself down again? And will you still think that it's all their fault? Do you think that you'll let yourself down again? And will you still think that it's all my fault? I can't tell you, I can't tell you There's still time, this can't be undermined There's still time... There's still time, this can be underlined There's still time

Discard 05:18
I could feel it shifting into this This is not the same, falling out of frame Across the path and back again, everyday is this again Months and months of this again, another month is lost again Nothing matters but your dream We would not be here, if it weren't for me Someone else's hands, hiding evidence I used to be here, and you'd invited me Once you have all you need, there'll be no reason to talk to me Nothing matters and loudly I'll take the fall...
