Never thought our love was much of a fuss that it’d make a woman cry into her shoe But there’s a finest worksong says what I want and what I need is something I confused Now I say I found my senses Yours get lost, get out And what you’re saying, that’s the runaround! I was doing time in mind on this note that I wrote ‘cause the words were hard to choose And Napoleon said it better, so I put it in the letter that I’m “filled with thoughts of you” And now you say you’ve got a lot to think about Uh, why’s he say he’s got a lot to think about? My mind is saying, “That’s the runaround!”

He don’t like Patsy Cline records He won’t give Willie a chance But despite his flaws we manage a fine romance And I won’t shake hives over 45s We’ll just put them aside for now When the morning comes I’ll say, “How about now?” And he says he likes the indie scene Some band about cement And that County Western’s drowned in sentiment But I don’t fuss and I don’t cuss ‘Cause I know he’ll come around When the morning comes I’ll say, “How about now?” Love is partial to compromise It will turn your grapes into wine But love that’s treated otherwise Will turn and die on the vine But when nothing’s on the radio And we’re stuck inside with no place to go I sure wish I liked his and he liked mine But I won’t get hives over 45s We’ll just put them aside for now When the morning comes I’ll say, “How about now?”

We Float 03:35
Come close now, baby Put your hand in mind Turn it over, baby Let me write These things I scrawl It’s code on your paw Ten notes for a phone Three notes for a row home (on Lonely Street) If you find a busy line Save a dime, dear Pick a stone Throw it at my window Tell me that you’re mine, and I’ll never let you go Tell me all the time and I’ll never let you go Never let you go Never let you go Oh, no Come inside now, won’t you Sing a song so fine My ears implore you Sing for miles and for miles I won’t lie to you this time I won’t lie to you now So alone Tell me that you’re mine, and I’ll never let you go Tell me all the time and I’ll never let you go Never let you go Never let you go Oh, no Come closer, baby Put your hand in mine Push the window open Let’s jump outside Pull the chord now, baby Pull it from my side, so we float And we float and we float and we float Tell me that you’re mine, and I’ll never let you go Tell me all the time and I’ll never let you go Never let you go Never let you go

Galapagos 03:53
When I wasn’t so much older Before my second teeth Over sand I would go running Turning tiny beach homes over For creatures underneath On a spool I’d watch them reeling Sunbeams licked my shoulders The water sniffed my feet When the moon came calling Galapagos Now I am a little older With children at my feet Over sand I watch them running Throwing lines out to the ocean For creatures underneath In a rush they break the ceiling Sunbeams lick our shoulders The water sniffs our feet When the moon comes calling Galapagos

Eight 02:00
Now we rest our tired feet Let the cars all have their street Do flowers by another name smell as sweet Not to those who know When the window opens we’ll walk through its frame I’ll tie your knot and I’ll take your name Don’t take mine and I’ll love you all the same Just so you know A world apart, outside the din We’ll walk the woods where the trail runs thin And like a river we’ll carve out a name As we go, as we go

These Dreams 02:29
I heard a song in my head on the way To your house with my unemployment pay It had me thinkin’ we were capable of art Well, I guess believin’ is a start You’ve got some drums and electric guitar too I’ll be your sister but I wanna marry you We’ve lived a little and we’ve got a lot to say I’ll sew up all our uniforms just teach me how to play These dreams are written on my heart And these dreams are mirrored in your heart Let’s put our heads together and we’ll never be apart These dreams are ours A modest house and a modest picket fence A two-car garage for our two Mercedes Benz I’ll take a Beamer if it means we pay our rent Just promise there’s no cutting on our time together spent We’ll make some records and we’ll tour all o’er the place If it doesn’t work out, you’ve still got my pretty face And my heart and my little bottom too And my eyes just before I say, “I do.” These dreams are written on my heart And these dreams are mirrored in your heart Let’s put our heads together and we’ll never be apart These dreams are ours

Fire from a star You came along You’re the lucky one You got my song Some Guilds they hide out in boxes Some’re hurt so bad that they can’t speak Some’ve little cracks along their axis Float ‘em on the water, watch them leak You’re the lucky one You got my song Fire from a star You came along You’re the lucky one You got my song Some Guilds have stars along their axis Some’ve necks that reach a mountain’s peak Some Guilds cost more after taxes But seldom seen exceed two workin’ weeks I’m the lucky one You got my song

Dorothy 02:26
You struggle my name But I remember You don’t look the same But I remember I remember Bach and ragtime and how you’d shout them from your fingers Forty years is a blinking eye I hear what you say And pick through the pieces Days fold into days Concealed by their creases Memories like friends are by, but how long will they linger? Clozapine, Rivastigmine Dorothy I’m leaving, Dorothy I’m going away But please don’t remember

I Don't Mind 05:11
He talks in his sleep He says it’s good to see me “This,” he says, “is my old lady.” He’s not talking to me We’re invited to the wedding of his ex-girlfriend She weighs less than me I don’t mind, I don’t mind, I don’t mind He says their love was fleeting Nothing but a distant memory I think he wants to show her Another side of history, what could have been, she as me I don’t mind, I don’t mind, I don’t mind I don’t mind, I don’t mind, I don’t mind Ooh-la-la, ooh-la-la, ooh-la la He watches me get ready He taps a melody I don’t mind, I don’t mind, I don’t mind I don’t mind, I don’t mind, unless he hurries me, makes me fuss Then I mind! Then I mind! Then I mind! Then I mind! Then I mind! Then I mind! Better not check his cheeks before he greets her, uh-huh Better not check his teeth before he sees her, uh-huh He won’t make a fool of me He’ll be just a memory Ooh-la-la, ooh-la-la, ooh-la la Ooh-la-la, ooh-la-la, ooh-la la
