Yes, I know you're all alone today
But Daddy doesn't have the time to play
Living life just kinda took the place
Of the way your comb your hair; your laughing face

And I can't reach you
And I might miss a step
When you say that it's over
The only thing I kept
Was your name cos I needed one

No, don't talk to me so bitterly of loyalty
And all the time you refuse to talk to me
Living life just kinda took your place
But you talk to me and torture me
although you're years and miles away

And I can't reach you
And I might miss a step
When you say that it's over
The only thing I kept
Was your name cos I needed one

All is not forgiven,
I'm living my life, not forgiving

And I can't reach you
No, I can't teach you
I lock my feelings in a jar until they go away
I lock my feelings in a jar until another day

Won't you come and join us
For all tomorrow's parties
Step inside, find a seat
Won't you come and join us
For all tomorrow's parties
Step inside, drink's on me

A little bit of naughty conversation
Baby, come over and talk to me
And if you're looking for a new direction
Baby, concentrate on me

And if you're ready for a new vibration
Baby, you're my cup of tea.
You quench my fire like rain
And, sugar-mama, talk to me

I learned a long, long time ago
When I was young; another girl
But now I am more than willing to baby walk you home

Maybe we'll be married
And have ourselves a baby girl
Who wonders who's watching you
As you spin across this world?

A little bit of naughty conversation
Baby, "conversate" with me
And if you're looking for a new vibration
Baby, concentrate on me

I learned a long, long time ago
When I was young; another girl
But now I am more than willing to baby walk you home

Maybe we'll be married
And have ourselves a baby girl
Who wonders who's watching you
As you spin across this world?

A little bit of naughty conversation
Baby, "conversate" with me
And if you're ready for a new vibration
Baby, concentrate on me

So I'll never drink a toast to love
Shot glass of loneliness in my left hand
So I'll never sit inside "the circle"
Loving cups hold nothing I'll understand

Chorus:
Lovely, you're so lovely
I could say a thousand prayers just to drink from your cup
Only I'm so lonely
Turn the table, turn the tide
Turn my feelings upside down...

Love can be as trivial just like a matchbox
Left beside somebody's birthday cake
And love can pierce the soul just like an arrow
If it feels at odds with your mistakes

(Chorus)

I wonder if you ever see me
Or even if you're looking right through me
I wonder what's your biggest fear
I sometimes wonder what you're thinking
You can't be thinking what I'm thinking
I wonder if I should even stay here
Coz you hurt me...

(Chorus)

Down

Well, it might be insecurity
Shootin' up my spine
I'm sitting on a fence
Cos it's my best defense

Well, it might be a "man and woman" thing
That keeps me sitting here
Screening every call
'Till evening starts to fall

I'd like to spend some time
With you sometime
If you're in the state-of-mind
What did you do to make me need to hear from you?
Call me and I'll revive that shine
To your tired eyes
Just keep me on your mind
Forever, Valentine

Well, you got me in your crosshairs
Bull's eye; you hit your target
For better or for worse
The longing starts to hurt

And I love you -- and I want you
Do you need me like I want you?

Twenty odd years of talking to myself
Finally someone answers back
Twenty odd years of looking in the mirror baby
Finally someone's looking back
Twenty odd years of idle conversations
That never make a sound
I'm ready to raise my spirit high
But be there, baby, when I come back down
When I come back down
When I come back down

I'd like to spend some time
With you sometime
If you're in the state-of-mind
What did you do to make me need hear from you?
Call me and I'll revive that shine
To your tired eyes
Just keep me on your mind
Forever, Valentine

And I love you -- and I want you
Do you need me like I want you?

Welcome, Isabella
To the world machinery
You can see it's slightly cracked, but
It's got its charm, you'll see

Chorus:
Isabella Vina
You can be just anything you dream
And when you dream, please dream all the love there is
Coz there is enough in your dreams

Welcome, Isabella
To the world machinery
There's a time to take a stand, and
A time to let it be

Braces and glasses
And history classes
Passing notes to the girl sitting right beside you

Kickball and handball
And friends that are screwballs
Make up on your face with your mother's love to guide you

Love scars and first cars
Your first favorite rock star
Daddy wonders what the dream upon your wall is

And when you dream, please dream all the love there is
Coz there is enough in your dreams...

It was automatic systematic
Looking for a friend
The door flew open and you dragged me by the skin

It was automatic systematic
The way you brought me in
And I was fair game for your petty little sins

One more time to take off the edge
From anything they ever said to you
And once we crossed the line we fled
The thrills of dancing on the ledge

I will begin, my sister, I will begin
I will begin, young mister, I will begin

It was automatic systematic
Looking for a clue
Everybody wants to win, instead we're all set up to lose
Everybody wants someone
Everybody wants to settle down
Everybody's on the merry-go-round

One more time to take off the edge
From anything they ever said to you
And once we crossed the line we fled
The thrills of dancing on the ledge

I will begin, my sister, I will begin
I will begin, young mister, I will begin

Kristen, if you're listening
Realize I could take you home
I'm ready if you are; I'm ready to
Search for a wild time, but don't
Tell me that you'll call me, or
Ever get back to me and
Never get my hopes up

Chorus:
Find me
Ready to go
Everywhere and
Nowhere; to
Count on how the angels sing; and
Hearts can sometimes take to wings

Kristen, if you're listening
Reeling from years of hiding
I'm ready to listen to you girl, so
Settle up, and bide your time; but don't
Tell me every story that you concoct for
Every friend to try and hurt them
Now they'll hurt you I'm ready to

(Chorus)

Never get my hopes up
I'm ready to jump to you

Chorus:
And all in all it's love, sweet love
In all, it's all too much

Don't miss your opportunity
Just think of the possibility
Tell me why you wouldn't wanna run around in the sunshine?
Struttin' in the sun

(Chorus)

Something enough to really know
When nothing will help your wounds to close
Tell me why you wouldn't wanna run around in the sunshine?
Struttin' in the sun

(Chorus)

It's positively electric walking in the sunshine
Struttin' in the sun
It's positively electric walking in the sunshine
Struttin' in the sun

Track Name: My Condition
"My Condition"

© 2002 Brian Hudson, Alex Oliver, & Roy Rendahl
www.poppermost.com

Oh great! Here it comes again
The trembling of a hand
The slightest gestures known to man
Is part of my condition, and

The glow inside my bulb's too bright
So I tried shutting of the light
The best inventions known to man
And I burn myself again, but

Chorus:
It's not the color of your hair
Or all my favorite t-shirts that you wear
It's all in how you came right back
To check on my condition

It's not enough to save your soul
So save your dimes for growing old
When every wind is chilling cold
It's part of my condition, and

I am the colour of the day
Silly boy blue in shades of grey
Things very seldom go my way
And I burn myself again, but

(Chorus)

Paint the town
A million shades of
What makes me and you
Feel we're bound to lose

One more round
A shot might work some magic
In this town
It's the trick that plays the clown

Always let them see you there
So they won't forget, and not regret it
Always let them see, right there
The anger in your eyes... we got

One more mile to go
One more mile to go
And never let them see you sweat
You might forget, we got one more mile to go

All night long
The heroes and the villains
Buy you drinks
It kinda makes you think

All night long
The heroes and the dandies
Make the scene
And they're lookin' kinda mean

Always let them see you there
So they won't forget, and not regret it
Always let them see, right there
The anger in your eyes... we got

One more mile to go
One more mile to go
And never let them see you sweat
You might forget, we got one more mile to go

Listen to me, mister

My understanding is very crystal
I can see your mind is mournful and confused
And everything, at least to my understanding
Has been punched up red and black and blue

I figured everything that I read in the papers
Past from mouth to headlines was the vicious truth
And everything that I pick up off my TV screen
Is punched up red and black and blue

Punched up red and black and blue... listen to me

Listen to me, mister

I see another body starving in the street today
It's them, tomorrow maybe me or you
Are you prepared to ask a stranger for a favor
When you're punched up red and black and blue?

My understanding is very crystal
I can see just why we're weary and confused
And yesterday could set up all of your tomorrows
When you're punched up red and black and blue

Punched up red and black and blue... listen to me

Listen to me, mister

Float like a swan...

Don't you wish that you could float like a swan
Underneath the golden rays of the sun?
An ugly duckling, don't you wish you could be
A beautiful thing that everyone wants to see?

Chorus:
It will be your day to come undone
And walk the shoreline to a brighter sun
We could all be like the chosen ones
And float like a swan

Don't you wish that you could sail like a swan
Treading water in the face of the dawn?
Brilliant and broken; don't you wish you could be
Nevermore, and further more, there's nothing to see

(Chorus)

Is your reflection just reflections
Of the way that you'd like to be?
Or is it just another picture
Of the damaged goods you see?
