Track Name: Nicky
We met when I was just a teen
You helped facilitate my dreams
I first saw you in a video
In someone else’s hands,

Though I want your taste on my lips
Give me a gentle morning kiss
Leave your perfume on my pillow
As I gaze out my window at the day
You make everything seem okay
And you’re the first thing on my mind
As I draw back my blinds

I wanted you to go
But you stuck around for the show
Yeah, I wanted you to go
But now I do, I don’t, I do, I don’t

Tell me a story you’re not in
You’ll stay safe in my tin
Tell me a story you’re not in
You’ll stay fresh in my tin
Nicky teen
Track Name: Blurb
Don’t waste more time
Putting this in the back of mind
Now that it’s been dug up
There’s a look on my face I try to cover up

There’s nothing more to look into
Before getting to know you
I’ve read the blurb a thousand times
Because I’m not the novel type

There’s somebody out there

It used to make me cry
When I’d hold it down inside
But I feel different now
I’ve grown a thicker skin somehow
What if you disappeared?
And we never got a chance to clear things up?
I couldn’t live with that
Cos you’re the only one that I’d call dad

There’s somebody out there
It’s really up to me
I should write to you
There’s somebody out there
It’s really up to me
Track Name: Elisa Lam
Disappearing Elisa Lam
Standing in that elevator door
She fell asleep in a rooftop tank
Nobody ever found out how

The carpet stains are the guests’ remains
600 rooms with blood filled drains
Policemen said it’s Bipolar
But I know what really stole her

She stayed on Main St
At the Cecil Hotel
Track Name: From My Pocket
Waking on the right side of the bed is not enough these days
What will I be today?
I am so up and down
Round and round I smile, then frown
I rearranged the chairs
Am I the only one that cares?

Is it a different sky we stand underneath?
Haven’t heard a sound come from my pocket

The day is gone before it starts
I feel a part of nothing but the teabag in its mug
My room’s alit by the yellow face, that sets the pace I’ll feel alright
And be myself today
Forget about yesterday

Is it a different sky we stand underneath?
Haven’t heard a sound come from my pocket
Track Name: Meadow Heights
Mum checks the mail at 1pm
No postcards, just bills again
And there’s no Christmas tree in the front room
Just a 64 Dad bought last June

Another sunny day
Until nightfall
Then day again
Too many prickles in the backyard
Only two leaf clovers down by the park
And there’s nowhere for a mind to drift away
You’re off the grid, it’s sad to say

Another cloudy day
Until nightfall
Then day again

How could you grow up with half a chance?
When Mum and Dad are living without romance
They’re waking up to watch daytime TV
And bought a dog for extra security

Another rainy day
Until nightfall
Then day again

How could you grow up with half a chance?
When Mum and Dad are living without romance
They’re waking up to watch daytime TV
And bought a dog for extra security

First you’ve got to get out of Meadow Heights
What is that screeching late at night?
First you’ve got to get out Meadow Heights
Who is that screaming late at night?
Track Name: Dolphin Quest
Nineteen years by your mother’s side
Don’t wait for alligators to bite down
All past cases dissolved into your head
What once was ugly looked pretty instead

Things await
When I’m on my time

Fourteen months by your brother’s side
Don’t wait for alligators to bite down
Winter, it looks down on your windowsill
The plants look the same size as last year, still
Don’t wait for alligators to bite

Are you supposed to be here?

Things await
When I’m on my time
Track Name: Paloma's Song
Just had a meeting
On my end of the line
This subtle feeling has got me caught up every time
You said don’t pay attention
And it all goes away
I hope your words can help me today

It’s not a waste
To leave this space
And do what you wanted
To do what you want

Digging up the past
In attempt to mend the future
Cake of bad memories
The icing is what I remember
You said don’t pay attention
And it all goes away
I hope your words can help me today

It’s not a waste
To leave this space
To do what you wanted
To do what you want

When I find myself forgetting us I’ll remember
All it takes is for you to come around I remember
When I find myself forgetting us I’ll remember

It’s not a waste
To leave this space
And do what you wanted
To do what you want

When I find myself forgetting us I’ll remember
All it takes is for you to come I remember
When I find myself forgetting us I’ll remember
Track Name: Open Book
These eyes multiply when you walk in my head
It stops, it spins
These eyes
They disguise tangled shapes in an infinite lake
I’ve tried to rewind
And rewrite open books that never closed

How many streets until your house?
How many dreams until they run out?

These eyes, just behind
Are memories deceased alive, I don’t know why
I’ve tried to rewind
And rewrite open books that never closed

How many streets until your house?
How many dreams until they run out?
I don’t want to wait every day for something new to happen, anyway
I don’t want to waste every day wishing it would happen
