a little taste of bitter 'little taste of sweet and somewhere in the middle you & i will meet the tenderness i needed from your hands so rough and when you've worn me smooth it simply ain't enough i curve myself into you i curve myself into you i curve myself into you-ooo-ooo and the night reigns the rainfall in our garden, 'sun that raises seeds our flowers sprouting every- where just like the weeds the tenderness i needed from the rainy clouds and when the soil is wet i come on back around i curve myself into you i curve myself into you i curve myself into you-ooo-ooo and the night reigns (solo) our flaws are perfect, oh the bad just makes it good (so much better) loving you's the hardest thing that takes no effort the tenderness i needed from your little smile (little smile) keep everything in check and i'll be 'round a while (3x) i curve myself into you i curve myself into you i curve myself into you-ooo-ooo and the night reigns

if im understanding you right you missed the very last flight and you don't know where to go you came back through the tsa they said it would be ok but we dont trust a word they say .. let's take a cab back into town ... i know the sky is brown ... but what else can we do oh i just dont know quite how to be . when the world is ending oh i just dont know, lord knows i'll try . but the world is ending now, and all the legacies you left were all for naught and they recalled the last thing you forgot if im understanding you right you can't sleep much in the night coz the stars are just a shame you came back with the morning sun and knew we needed to run but we dont trust the road we take .. let's make a pact to turn around ... all the things that make us frown ... coz what else can we do oh i just dont know quite how to be . when the world is ending oh i just dont know, lord knows i'll try . but the world is ending now, and all the legacies you left were all for naught and they recalled the last thing you forgot (solo) .. let's make a pact to turn around ... all the things that make us frown ... coz what else can we do oh i just dont know quite how to be . when the world is ending oh i just dont know, lord knows i'll try . but the world is ending now, and all the legacies you left were all for naught and they recalled the last thing you forgot

All Came Out 02:03
are you inclined to take pictures of my mind or would you rather talk it out? wish i could make all the things inside my brain that hold me back fall out and no one has to know that it just all came out and no one has to know that it just all came out of me that it just all came out of me stuck on my phone playing album after album but i'd rather just hang out stuck on a tone playing mind games with myself i wish i'd cut it out and no one has to know that it just all came out and no one has to know that it just all came out of me that it just all came out of me

(as its) rising (i) know you're gonna feel alright (i) know the tricks the teachers play, with heads so young (the) colors, oh they fading, & the cars, well, they ain't running (i) know the world is bleak, im blunt on that one thing (the) letters, ain't no meaning, and the clocks they are a-ticking ..

washing your tires with paint marking on the road everywhere you go .., if you cant help yourself, you cant help me washing your hands without soap leaving germs on the stove when you burn your hand .., if you cant help yourself, you cant help me running in circles helping gnomes get off the lawn running in circles turning all of the lights on eating the cake in the fridge; there's no cake in the fridge; there's not even a fridge .., if you cant help yourself you cant help me going to school in your shorts when its thirty de- grees; you dont even have knees .., if you cant help yourself you cant help me

Brass Belts 05:18
.. end of the week i feel like you're two inches off .. sitting with nothing on your mind .. poppin the record on you play when you feel blue .. crack of the vinyl, fading white (are you) feeling tied down by the brass belts (are you) feeling tied down by the brass belts (are you) feeling tied down by the brass belts today? .. end of the night you say goodbye and walk back home .. drinkin your coffee from a flask .. turnin your walkman on the first time in a year .. wear on the old tape, skippin tracks (are you) feeling tied down by the brass belts (are you) feeling tied down by the brass belts (are you) feeling tied down by the brass belts today? .. end of the call i feel like there's so much to say .. sitting with something on my mind .. poppin the record on i play to feel less blue .. beat of the disco brings me round (are you) feeling tied down by the brass belts (are you) feeling tied down by the brass belts (are you) feeling tied down by the brass belts today?
