It’s the end of the night and it’s empty in here You look at the clock and then empty my beer You’re a girl with the words that can break me in half right now It’s the end of the beginning Lay down your tongue and your pride by your side It’s hard and it’s dry but it’s sharp like a knife And everyone knew it would come but ignored those words It’s the end of the beginning The truth is a word never said in the dead of night At your feet here I kneel, look up, close my eyes And it’s true that I’m just trying to make you cry It’s the end of the beginning It’s the opening hour and there’s nobody here You look at the clock and the pour me a beer You’re a girl with the eyes that can warm me inside and show Me the end of the beginning

You like to hang around Until they run aground He left you sitting with your feet in the sand So he now he's out of the frame But baby, you'll need a name And you released when he let go of your hand Well if the first kiss is a lie just get away, yeah And if the last kiss makes you cry then get away now So if the first kiss is a lie, and the last kiss makes you cry Well then for god's sake get away tonight You didn't give too much You didn't take too much And the taste of blood is on your tongue It didn't hurt too much You didn't feel too much But you don't feel quite as alive as when you were young Well if the first kiss is a lie just get away, yeah And if the last kiss makes you cry then get away now There's not much time to let go by, so get away now So if the first kiss is a lie, and the last kiss left you dry Well then you know you gotta fly tonight

Lift your head from your pillow Put your feet on the floor Wide awake, getting ready It’s the day you’ve waited for Early morning to the clinic Driving slowly through the streets Thinking what to make for dinner Wonder what is on TV You can do This, it’s not the worst You’ve been through Take the pills from the bottle Count them out and kick them back This won’t last forever You’ll be up and on track And the road back is a long one But not so bad with someone there We will be here waiting for you We will be here to take care You can do This could be the worst You’ll be through You can do This could be the last You’ll go through Down by the water Down by the bay

You drag your world Around on your back Your feet are flat Your eyes are black A perfect thing As things will come But you undo What has been done I loved the warm, the light that shone I love you even though you’re gone Who is the man Who told you fight But gave you drugs Put out your light I want to wrap My arms around you I want to wrap The heavens around you I loved the warm, the light that shone I love you even though you’re gone
5.
I’m lost in the crowd And I can’t see your face Your hand slipped away from mine Have you left me again? Was always lonely in a crowd Couldn’t take the strangers stare But I could look at you all day, you’d keep me calm But have you left me again? But have you left me again? But have you left me again? Could you just tell me when you’re going? Maybe leave a goodbye note I don’t need a big production Cause it’s not knowing That breaks my heart And makes it hard I’m lost in the crowd I thought I saw you today It wasn’t you but was nice to think of us Together again Together again Together again Together again Together again
6.
When it’s a stranger in your room Just act normal, don’t be rude But when he turns And looks away Take your chance Make a break It could even be your father If he’s a stranger don’t even bother But when he turns And looks away Take your chance Make a break When the words Sound alien Make a break There and then

Railroad gently rocks your head you Fell asleep across from me I watched the hills slip by Somewhere crossing this great landscape I lost your moist affection I watched it all slip by I barely now remember Stealing little kisses This isn’t what I promised When I took you far from home I barely now remember The stars and the red wine Blue smoke wreathed around your head you Were stoned out of your mind you Were something of a ghost That lost week with the blood then to the clinic They said it wasn’t your fault And you said it wasn’t mine I only now remember The numbness in my fingers This isn’t how a promise Fulfills itself for life I barely now remember Stealing little kisses This isn’t what I promised When I took you far from home I barely now remember The stars and the red wine Highway gently rocks your head you Fell asleep beside me I watched our lives slip by

Night Bird 02:16
I am a night bird Sent to watch you From the trees I’m not supposed to Be afraid But I am These days there are many creatures who eat our kind I am a night bird And I’ll sing You to sleep Songs of my children Who I’ll never Get to see These days I don’t hate you, but you’ll kill me anyway
9.
You drag your world Around on your back Your feet are flat Your eyes are black A perfect thing As things will come But you undo What has been done I loved the warm, the light that shone I love you even though you’re gone Who is the man Who told you fight But gave you drugs Put out your light I want to wrap My arms around you I want to wrap The heavens around you I loved the warm, the light that shone I love you even though you’re gone
