Track Name: Spark
I wanna feel that way, I wanna feel that way
Used to know the rush of love, but now I don’t know
I don’t know

And the sea will have me waiting for it
Always and always and always
I’ll hang around here forever

My hands are soft, my mind is weak
Someone reaches out to me, I cannot speak
I cannot speak

When the wave comes
When the wave comes (Will I dive beneath?)
When the wave comes
When the wave comes

When the wave comes
When the wave comes (Will I rush its peak?)
When the wave comes

I cannot speak
Track Name: Dirty Water
I don’t know from whom they’re running
Born to lose the fools I summon
It’s the muse for the blues of a siren
Never thinking it was me all along

Oooo

I don’t know from whom I’m running
Born to choose the ruse I summon
It’s the muse for the blues of a siren
Always knowing it was me all along

‘Cause I took a glance at myself in the dirty water
I took a glance at myself in the dirty water
Oh, think I’m gonna drown
But I took a glance at myself in the dirty water
I took a glance at myself
Dirty water
Oh, think I’m gonna drown
Track Name: Why Should I Hide
Oh, we both know what
You do to me
But ask, I’ll tell a lie
Even though you’re so damn endearing
I can’t reveal it

I don’t know why I can’t confide
When you’re around me
I don’t know why
I should hide
My fears set aside
I’m so happy that you found me
I don’t know why
I should hide

Oh, we know I won’t die
You gave me a condition
It’s not a sickness
Even though you know what I’m concealing
I can’t reveal it

I don’t know why I can’t confide
When you’re around me
I don’t know why
I should hide
My fears, set aside
I’m so happy that you’ve found me
(still) I don’t know why
I should hide
Track Name: Ghost of L.A.
So you told me you’re moving up north
You might as well be moving to the stars
I’ll stay here, embracing my fears
Surrounded by this twisted metal forest

‘Cause I prefer a place with noise over space
Where city bars lay haunted by the living
Who sip away their regrets, but never forget
The memories of the ones that got away

But in my heart is the sweetest refrain of love
And my heart, it pleads for you to stay, oh love
But you leave me here, your ghost of LA

As a ghost, I’m partial to play
The music of those no longer stars
With Jack in my veins, and Patsy on play
I lay down to write you a letter

But the words, they fail in my brain
The needle gets stuck in the record
And by now it’s become a cliché
With you I never knew what to say

But in my heart is the sweetest refrain of love
And my heart, it pleads with my brain above
Don’t leave me here, your ghost of LA

One day our hearts will cease and refrain, oh love
And this song will fade with the stars above
All roads lead here, I’ll see you some day
Track Name: Galapagos
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
Track Name: I Don't Mind
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
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-la, ooh-la la-la, ooh-la la-la
Ooh-la la-la, ooh-la la-la, ooh-la 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-la, ooh-la la-la, ooh-la la-la
Ooh-la la-la, ooh-la la-la, ooh-la la-la
Track Name: Water is Wide
Cold is the siren’s calling
Echoes that shatter the peace in my mind
Songs of a love once taken
Over a great divide

I see your portrait fading
Younger and blistered, frozen in time
Inside the cracks I’m crawling
Towards you, love, don’t hide

Water is wide
(Water’s wide, I’m falling)

Over a hill I’m falling
Familiar shadows cling to my side
Calm is the river waiting
Hands are adrift behind

Water is wide
(Water’s wide, I’m falling)
Track Name: Queen of Pain
She wastes away in bed
And tastes her last breath
As the moon makes to rise
In her eyes the sun sets

Everyone goes, empty rooms
We all walk alone
Lonely roads, faded wounds
They’ll still lead you home

Sheets of lead
Drape the bed in which we’ve all slept
You can hear Baby cry
In her arms a son wept

Everyone goes, empty rooms
We all walk alone
Love the bramble for the bloom
We are cut from both

The moon’ll go down, the sun will come ‘round
All of her dreams will be gone

Queen of pain
Queen of pain
Queen of pain
Queen of pain
Track Name: Starlight
Made a spark in darkness
You thought you had something to show
Didn’t know which way to go
Didn’t know how long the road

Laid it bare in the crucible
Held out hope each night
Tore down the silver walls
(Blue sky!) And tried to frame life right

Starlight
Unseen all these years
Can’t seem to stop it from reaching cold, deaf ears
