Track Name: What Can Do
What can do, what can do, what can do, ah, what can do….?

It was a cold, cold night, and my jacket’s tight.
No-one was watching, except…
And he was walking a chance and looking for a dance,
What could I do?
It was a hot, hot night.

What can do…

And if you’re looking for a reason,
You shall not find it here.
I’ve been looking for a reason
For longer than I care to care.
And you ain’t got no reason to stay here.
But baby, it’s how it is
And I am just how I am.

What can do…
Track Name: Like Sugar
It’s a spell of dishonesty
I’m shocked when you’re honest to me
It’s not hard to turn a button, but
You’re kinda stubborn so…

This man thought I was up for grabs
We both know there’s no truth in that.
The only food I eat I bless at our table;
IF I had a drink, it’s cause I am able.

You’re sweet, like sugar,
You need me to water you down.
You’re sweet like sugar
I wanna settle you down, I wanna settle you down, oh…

I’ll never be the sun you live without
I’ll never be the sun you live without
I’ll never be the sun, but I will be your only one
And I will push your little buttons with my mouth.

I’ll never be the stars you live without
I’ll never be the star you live without
I’ll never be a star, but I will drive you in my car
And I will push your little buttons with my mouth.

You’re sweet, like sugar,
You need me to water you down.
You’re sweet like sugar
I wanna settle you down, I wanna settle you down, oh…
Track Name: Caught You Out
Picking you up again
It’s not how it should have been,
But it’s the way it’s gone
And I don’t regret a thing I’ve done
Except how I loved
Someone and then forgot myself.
So, here’s to you my dear playing the fool.

Well I caught you out
And I want you to know…

Tumbled into act one,
So this is how it in began.
And anyway it’s lost and gone,
And I don’t regret a thing I’ve done;
Except, loving you without a thought.
It’s a free choice, honey,
Oh you forgot,
You say you lost yourself in us…

Well I caught you out
And I want you to know…
Track Name: Thirst
I have an unstoppable thirst.
Quenched some by the thought of you and some by what I don’t deserve.
I’m blind to the truth I feverishly seek I call to the shadows and yet you don’t speak.
I have an unstoppable thirst.

Don’t be fooled by my deceiving ways, I am not here to save you I’m,
Parched open mouth and pleading and I am only leading you astray.

I have an unstoppable thirst.
Quenched some by the thought of you and some by what I don’t deserve.
If you had some sense you would stop me to say, save all your effort is pain for your play.

Don’t be fooled by my deceiving ways, I am not here to save you
Parched open mouth and pleading and I am only leading you astray.

Don’t mind my unstoppable thirst….
Track Name: Baba Yaga
I’m a 10 year old girl with a blood lust.
I try to clean those glasses from your dirty lips, and your dirty past.
My friend pulls the weeds; my friend mows the grass;
In this dead little suburb, which keeps in curse, after curse.

He needs care from what is real,
I need blood for my strange heart,
Lost a bucket-load round here,
He must get away.
Save each other from a hell,
He ties ribbons where I can’t,
“Take this cloth, take this brush,
Run away, run away…”

I’m a 10 year old girl with a blood lust.
I try to clean those dirty glasses from all of you scum.
We ain’t doin’ nothin’ wrong, we both have our scars.
I told him a story, he gave me a turtle. He drives a cool car.

He needs care from what is real,
I need blood for my strange heart,
Lost a bucket-load round here,
He must get away.
Save each other from a hell,
He ties ribbons where I can’t,
“Take this cloth, take this brush,
Run away, run away…”

Ooh… Our deeds they ripen on that tree, someone just listen to me,
Here I wait.
No-one knows where I go to, your birth too early, mine too new.

I’m a 10 year old girl, he is 22.
If you ever lay your hands on him, I crave for blood.
Track Name: Barricade
Bring it like a cup to bear; anyway you’ll have it there.
If I trust your innocence, am I safe?
Meeting there we struck a chord, discarding thoughts we can’t afford.
If I trust your inference, a barricade.

Oh, what we had found just now.
Common threads they bind, common lives left behind.
Oh, what we have forged just now.
Once said all we couldn’t say. Hold it back.

I fight like I need it less, if I asked I’m sure you’d guess.
If I trust the me in you, I might crave.
All our known selves left aside, we stand singing side by side,
If I trust the harmony will it fade?

Oh, what we had found just now.
Common threads they bind, common lives left behind.
Oh, what we have forged just now.
Once said all we couldn’t say. Hold it back.
Track Name: Caravan
I found a wild man and his heart
I tried to tame them both.
And the one thing I learned is how you get burned
By a cool, icy wind in the desert.

I found a gypsy man in his caravan
And he played wild rhythms on his violin.
He grasped for my heart
It is not there to take.
I’m wild too you know
I don’t easily break.

They all stare in certain disgust
Knowing of my sins, as they must.

But you’ll never see him there in my arms,
Under the stars, but I do.
And you’ll never see him stand by my side,
Swelling with pride, but neither do I…

I was a wanton one when he came
And put his spell on me.
I was not claimed, but twice ashamed
So what did it matter to me.

I had a gypsy man in his caravan
And my soul shook with fever at his command.
I grasped for his heart
It is not there to take.
It flies with the wind,
And it loves only change.

I’ll not make an honest man out of him
But somehow he got under my skin.

You’ll never see him there in my arms,
Under the stars, but I do.
And you’ll never see him stand by my side,
Swelling with pride, but neither do I…

La da da da da…
Track Name: Truce
I caught a white dove
And then I lost its name.
And the white flag of our truce
It fell blood red again.

Seashell lost his voice
Come whisper in my ear.
I am not scared of the truth
I say, bring on another year.

I brood on my defence
Go claim your innocence
Let’s leave our selfish pride and foolish apathy.

I set myself afloat
To clear my mind and throat.
But we’re on the same boat!
I’m on the keel and you’re at the stern,
And we’ve got no more bridges to burn.
Oh…

This tide it pulls you in,
You either sink or swim.
Come on. Let’s build an ark,
Together we’ll find dry land.

There goes that white dove,
I swear it’s been haunting us.
I set it free and we will see, if it
Brings back an olive branch.

I brood on my defence
Go claim your innocence
Let’s leave our selfish pride and foolish apathy.

I set myself afloat
To clear my mind and throat.
But we’re on the same boat!
I’m on the keel and you’re at the stern,
And we’ve got no more bridges to burn.

Just hold my hand.
Track Name: Madeline
My name is Madeline and I love the autumn red hair of my lover.
His lips a paradigm in which I fold, my torn, dry wings to recover.
These violet shadows and bright yellow lights, tickle his skin for hours.
Rest in this glorious hue of delight and my pink skin as it flowered.

Lay beside me, lay awake, and I will keep you warm.
Haunting shadows we mistake, the distant sound of bells.

My name is Madeline and I call your soft, downy name to the sea.
Whispers of seashells, thunderous waves, echoes of our memories.
Curse the day that you left, your white parched sails snapped in the zephyr.
How were we to know that when you left, it would be forever?

Lay beside me, lay awake, and I will keep you warm.
Haunting shadows we mistake, the distant sound of bells.

My name is Madeline and I love the autumn red hair of my lover.
His lips a paradigm in which I fold, my torn, dry heart to recover.

Lay beside me, lay awake, and I will keep you warm.
Haunting shadows we mistake, the distant sound of bells.
Track Name: Simple Things
It’s the simple things that we love.
Blankets freshly warmed by the sun.
Cups of tea by the fire.
A kind word.

I will look at you and you shall find me homely.
I will smell your skin, warm, cinnamon and sweet,
My hair shall tickle you, you’ll animate the silence.

It’s the simple things we love
(This is spring…)
Smell of lavender on the breeze
(It seems we are blooming…)
And those little imperfections
(Perhaps I am your honey…)
Cracked coffee mug on your lips
(You would loose your sting to protect me…)

I will look at you and you’ll find me homely.
I will smell your skin, warm, cinnamon and sweet,
My hair shall tickle you, you’ll animate the silence.
We shall be still, yet moved, greatly, by our love.

(This is spring…)
It’s the simple things that we love.
(It seems we are blooming…)
It’s the simple things that we love.
