Track Name: I Heard The Sound
Some years are better than others
Twenty-one just recovered
Found myself in the desert
Oh that summer

I heard the sound
Calling me down
I heard the sound
I had to go

And I spent all my money
On holiday
Fell for the tiger
I'm sorry mother
Track Name: Oh My Love
Oh my love
Let me know
When you're down
When you're home

I wanted to be true

I've got to know
When you're in town
I've got to tell you
Something I've done
You won't be happy no
You may cry
Oh my love
Track Name: Baby, There's A God Above
Baby, there's a god above
Maybe he loves you
They say god's love is tough
And I hope that he smites you

I remember the time
You said that we'd try
But you crossed the line
Learnt to fly

Baby, I've had enough
Maybe I still love you
But lately you're just too much
And I could live without you

You walked out that door
Our sweetest goodbye
Don't come round here no more
You make me cry

You'll find your way somehow
Face like an angel
But southern boys beware now
That face hides a devil

All smiles at first
Those eyes couldn't lie
She'll quench your thirst
And bleed you dry

Baby, there's a god above
Maybe he loves you
But no one could give you love
No one could like I do
Track Name: I Get Lost
To be young, to live by the ocean
To be alone, to be no one
Out of the city, the disarray
Endless smoke, endless grey
Sombre, pallid sorrow
Street lamps acid yellow
Onwards, westwards
The setting sun

I could be happy there
By the fire and by myself
Out of the wind and the rain's way
The crushing wind, the lashing sea
Steeply sloping mountain
Sleepless boundless ocean
Onwards, westwards
The setting sun

I get lost

I get lost going to the shops
I get lost in parking lots
I get lost looking in the windows
I get lost in my own sad eyes
I get lost when I'm not feeling myself
I get lost when I am feeling myself
Inside, outside
I'm lost all the fucking time
Track Name: Let Me Go
Bottle of vodka
I drink it down
Makes me feel better
But my liver is getting worse
I think I'm getting sicker
I'm getting sicker
My body's getting sicker yeah
My mind's getting sicker
This world's getting sicker yeah
Won't you let me go?

This tobacco
I smoke it up
Makes me feel better
But my throat is getting worse
I think I'm getting cancer
I'm getting cancer
My thoughts are a cancer yeah
This town is a cancer
My friends are cancer yeah
Won't you let me go?

Oh let me go now
Track Name: Lost Love
Oh lost love
I'll add your letters to the pile
Stars burn cold
Fire sends the ashes high
And when they're gone
I hope you'll be gone

Memory
Guardian and treasury
Of all things
Hurry up and take your leave
And when you're gone
I hope she'll be gone

She's the only one I know
Guess I must be having fun
Oh my baby
Track Name: We Are All Mortal
You know, you know
Yes you know
The leaves fall, the leaves grow
And its all, its all
Yes its all
Something inevitable
And we are all mortal

You'll learn, you'll learn
I guess you'll learn
Good and bad all get their turn
And its sad, its sad
Yes its sad
Bad begets good, good begets bad
But we are all mortal

I guess that its absurd
Living in this world

A dream, Aideen
I had a dream
Teeth falling and breaking
And it seems, it seems
Yes it seems
There's less to death than it seems
And we are all mortal
Track Name: Old Love Song
Look into your heart you know its true
We're wasting our time
But there's a reason too
You know I'm right
And if its not love then we're only fooling ourselves
And thats fair

We've got a spark I know its true
You're on my mind
And just thinking of you
Takes up all my time
And if its not love then we're only fooling ourselves
And thats fair
Just like an old love song, yeah

But there's an ocean so blue
And so wide
In between me and you
Every night
And if its not love then we're only fooling ourselves
And thats fair
Just like an old love song, yeah
Track Name: We Were Young
In your garden
Doing work for your dad
I took off my shirt
You just sat there with a drink in your hand
And the sun would glisten on your skin
We were young
Young enough to care
And I loved you the best
And for a while you loved nobody else

By the pool
You swam to my side
You swam like a child
I couldn't swim so I just lay there and smiled
And the sun would glisten on your skin
We were young
Young and full of youth
In schools and in fields
I remember but my lips are still sealed

By the river
Walk hand in hand
Leave our friends behind
Always looking for a place to lie down
And the sun would glisten on your skin
We were young
Too young to know better
I thought I knew you well
You were just waiting on somebody else
Track Name: All My Life
Sweet adolescence
Its all mistakes and embarrassments
You're not alive
Til you're twenty-five
But if I could turn back time
And start again
I wouldn't change a thing
My mistakes have brought me where I've been
And I've wasted time getting high
I've been wasting time all my life
All my life

Will my heart still?
Only time will tell
I've sold everything I can sell
Oh well
Its my life, its my life baby now, its my life
Its my life, its my life baby now, its my life
Its my life, its my life baby now, its my life
I'm going crazy, I'm going crazy
I'm going crazy now, I'm going crazy now
All my life
