Track Name: I Thought I'd Hear You Arrive
I thought I could hear you arrive
But you snuck up on me instead
I could've laughed myself to death

Had been told I'd want to touch the sky
Though I think I'd prefer to stand
Where my feet recommend and then

We listen to 'The Soft Parade'
The best part of the trip
He says and I
Don't know if I can agree with him just yet
Not just yet.

We wonder why you are not yourself
Or are the changes in this room
An attribute of the shit consumed?

Had been told I'd want to touch the sky
Though I think I'd prefer to stand
Side by side and holding your hand

And listen to 'The Soft Parade'
The best part of the trip
He says and I
Don't know if I can agree with him just yet
Not just yet

And listen to 'The Soft Parade'
The best part of the trip
He says and I
Don't know if I can agree with him just yet
Oh! But I
Can sort of see the colours that he meant
And this is it!
Track Name: Brooch
I found your brooch the one you
had lost last week
It was underneath the passenger seat
Sitting beside a five cent piece.

And you had that look in your eyes
One I hesitate to describe
'Cos it's only meant for me
It tells me that I'm your baby

The back seats were occupied
The doors were locked
And soon enough the street lamps and moonlight
Turn inseparable in the fog

The windscreen had captured the mist
That grew more everytime we kissed
As we took turns to ignore our phones
It didn't matter what time I got you home.

I found your brooch the one you
had lost last week
It was underneath the passenger seat
Sitting beside a five cent piece.

And you had that look in your eyes
One I hesitate to describe
'Cos it's only meant for me
It tells me that I'm your baby
Track Name: Emergency Exit
Talking to you makes my knees go weak
To say I'm frightened of you says the least.
And as I formulate my pitch
A swing and then a miss awaits me
If it you who's upto hit.

To capture your heart as easily as you did mine
Is difficult if fear comes up trumps everytime
Your reputation wont be conceded
To the fact that you proceeded
To talk to someone like me

You lose your train of thought
You just stand still and forget
The tips that you've been told
And continue to
Make believe she's not the girl for me
It's the other way around I've found

You'll shut down my attempts to chat you up
And do the same for everybody else that's in this club
As he begins to make his advance
He turns to stone with just a glance from you
It's a lesson for the remaining few

And the gazelle escapes the cheetah's grasp
Disappointment has never been achieved this fast
The bravest will turn to leg it
Toward the emergency exit

You lose your train of thought
You just stand still and forget
The tips that you've been told
And continue to
Make believe she's not the girl for me
It's the other way around you'll find

And better luck next time.
Track Name: Lady Penelope
"I wanna be alone,
I gotta be alone"
She says in my company
If you're gonna let me go
I think you oughta know
I'm gonna take it personally, yeah.

Your bobby pins I find
Under my bed remind
Me of all the time we spent in my room
Like we were in our cocoon
I hope we can resume
But for now I'm back to dreaming of you

And you're trying to let me down
So gently it's just keeping me around

"I wanna be alone,
Would you please just take me home?
With you is somewhere I can't be."
If you're gonna let me go
I think you oughta know
I'm gonna take it personally.

Those bobby pins I find
Under my bed remind
Me of all the time we spent in my room.
Like we were in our cocoon
How I wish we could resume
But for now I'm back to dreaming of you.

And you're trying to let me down
So gently it's just keeping me around
Our friends think they know what's best for me
I ain't told you something...

When I'm at home I type your name on a screen
And there you are smiling back at me with someone
I ain't even seen: Jealousy.
If I'm just the driver she's lady penelope.

And you're trying to let me down
So gently it's just keeping me around
And you're trying to let me down
So gently it's just keeping me around
Our friends think they know what's best for me
I ain't told you something, I would have to agree.
Track Name: Inherently Flawed
One hundred years just cannot seem to heal
What a fraction of a second had revealed
We're inherently flawed.

I lose my love each time you turn away
You know that makes it easier to say
We're inherently flawed.

Capture me a likely candidate
Someone like you
Someone who's willing to create
A terrible mistake

Automatically your hand is raised
Is that a sign of a girl who's not afraid
No round of applause at the end he pleads
She never said she offered guarantees

Back inside the belly of the beast
Confusion stops thoughts turning into speech
Am I inherently flawed?

Last night I felt you loosen your grip
Is this the part that you prefer to skip?
Are we inherently flawed?

Capture me a likely candidate
Someone like you
Someone who's willing to create
A terrible mistake

Automatically your hand is raised
Is that a sign of a girl who's not afraid
No round of applause at the end he pleads

The sun hasn't changed
Them clouds were here yesterday
And they're here and you're not;
And I don't like em anymore

Let's go back to what we're used to
Let's go back to what we're used to
Let's go back to what we're used to.
Let's go back.

Automatically your hand is raised
Is that a sign of a girl who's not afraid
No round of applause at the end he pleads
No round of applause at the end he pleads
She never said she offered guarantees.

We lose, we lose.
We lose, we lose, my love.
Track Name: Break You Down
You're continually testing the waters
And making sure to always proceed with caution
And dipping in your toe every once in a while
Just don't forget to tell me how it goes

He should've just asked.
You'd've told him no
But then he dives in head first
And there's nowhere you can go

You can only give in
And you're gonna give in

You're gonna give in.
You're gonna give in.
You're gonna give in.
You're gonna give in.
It's a matter of time

Drinking doesn't help just adds probable cause
He's looking at you thinking to himself "we're right on course"

It's what we call the chase
How we love a good one
We'll do whatever it takes
And you know that when we've won?

Is when you give in
Are you gonna give in?

You're gonna give in.
You're gonna give in.
You're gonna give in.
You're gonna give in.
It's a matter of time
