Track Name: Berlin
is Berlin really for lovers
is Venice lonely at last
I wanna find you
where you've never been hidden
and run like a criminal into your grass

you can't deny the hills
from which you've already grown
the mountains called
their defenses down
the leaves have shaken all the trees
out of their ground
the river's run has left you golden, alone

is Richmond ready with romance
is London wearing your coat
I wanna kiss you where you've never been christened
and dive like a falcon into your boat

on Sunday you will
(I have hope)
with your heart, packed, racing
with your eager hands chasing
(oh, and it'll be known)
around his love
the forest will sing out
" we want your children now!"
and in a warm engine
we shall cut the pacific

Yes, Berlin is for lovers
London - never heard a better name
I'm bound to love
where you've never ever been living
and stand like a lion
at your gates
Track Name: The Lake's Alive
you yelled, " the lake's alive! "
you took off my sweater in the shade
you slapped my ass and said
" babe, this is why we were made "
are you gonna swim or are you gonna parade?
I haven't come this far in my father's car to behave.

you yelled, " the last one in is done
and will sink to their grave!"
as her english shoes became barracudas
under the waves
are you gonna swim or are you gonna parade?
I haven't stripped my clothes,
it's such a useful pose to behave

The lights are on your side
And our hands are hoping for a place to slide

I'm not going back dear, to the volvo
(Niagra Falls and water walls don't keep me up)
where our clothes are dry and lonely
( Leviathan, don't breath us in and our great lakes love)
we can build us an island
out of airplane wreckage like a stranded family

Our naked frames are meant to be
delivered and saved
so if I asked to touch
would you pounce on your chest and obey
are you gonna swoon or are you gonna parade?
I havent swam this far since 1994 to behave

The lights are on your side
And our hands are hoping for a place to slide

I'm not going back dear, to the volvo
(Niagra Falls and water walls don't keep me up)
where our clothes are dry and lonely
( Leviathan, don't breath us in and our great lakes love)
we can build us an island
out of airplane wreckage like a stranded family

Niagra Falls and water walls don't keep me up
Leviathan, don't breath us in and our great lakes love
Niagra Falls and water walls don't keep me up
Leviathan, don't breath us in and our great lakes love
Track Name: His and Hers
You just don't care
that she wants you alone
Ain't no Brooklyn train
is gonna take you home
you grab her hip
and cough up, up ,up, your name
slide slide one two
over disco fours
to define a tongue which was never yours
and who gives damn
she's all the same

My hands are tied
you might as well just cut me from it
Beneath the night
so timidly we care, we'll want it
Don't sleep so late
I wanna watch you rise up from it

I got news and you've got few
I've got plans on how we've all got plans

22 years, 20 more broken laws
station to station under the latest cause
21 storms, 21 rising walls
you're my four corners
you're the weather of love

My hands are tied
you might as well just cut me from it
Beneath the night
so timidly we care, we'll want it
Don't sleep so late
I wanna watch you rise up from it
( you've got me running up your stairs - you have me walking back down your stairs)

My hands are tied
you might as well just cut me from it
Beneath the night
so timidly we care, we'll want it
Don't sleep so late
I wanna watch you rise up from it

I got news and you've got few
I've got plans on how we've all got plans
Track Name: Westerners
Praise for the lovely
you'll be dreaming while you can
is she alone or is she wrestling
is she alone or is she fine, I guess

Not going home now
I am living where I lay
is she gone where the Westerners go
or is gonna go where those Westerns stay

So long with marriage
cause I want you now
why resistance ?
oh why such loud wedding bells
your great defender
is he looking out for you now?
his loving anchor
keeping us down

Hooray for the Savior
he's be putting up all these graves
is he alive or is he wrestling
is he alone or is he day by day
I want you to touch me
but by the cross I will obey
is she gonna go where the Northerns
or is she gonna go where the demons stay

I am ecstatic when you're in my attic
but babe that's always trouble
but it's troubling me
golden retrievers, backyard believers
if you find the heat, then you find it in me
Track Name: Small Deaths (Daniel Demo)
All my biggest mistakes
have been around me for years
all the small deaths
have been buried so near
but I am gonna try
yeah, I'm gonna try
this year

All my sister's clothes
were buried in the yard
we hung her jewelry
from the chandelier
we're gonna try
though she'll probably die
this year

I danced to Loretta Lynn
in front of her door
wanting the ghost of her god
to reappear
she's gonna try
I'll probably die
in fear
