Track Name: Trauma Nights
This Saturday, you’re leaving me
You can’t be wrong, it goes on and on and on, believe me
We tried your way, you needed me
And now it goes, slowly on and on, not as easy

I might try to tell you something on the stereo
I might find a way to leave you as you come and go

This lonely room, we used to know
Our lives ahead, well they’re broken bones and broken egos
Never thought, we’d grow up so fast
This couldn’t happen to someone else, to someone evil

I might try to save us something by the stereo
I might find a way to see you as you come and go

Trauma, trauma, trauma nights
Trauma, trauma, trauma nights

The winter sting, saved by your friends
Pick up the pieces, on and on, and on till the end
It could be you, imagining
The perfect life, well they’re stranger tones and stranger reasons

Trauma, trauma, trauma nights
Trauma, trauma, trauma nights
Track Name: The Salty Earth
I might have found a way
Just to stay awake
I don’t want to ever hesitate

Fight like an animal
See what you’re worth
March lions roam the salty earth

Take it easy and just settle now
Or take a chance even if you’re let down
Well you’ve taken the harder road around

I tried to be a ghost
A reasonable man
I’m drowning in the blood and sand

Silence will be your friend
You’re born alone
Strip me down to only rag and bone

Take it easy and just settle now
Or take a chance even if you’re let down
Well you’ve taken the harder road around

Contain your expectation

And now you’ll see
Your heart drops so get back on your feet

Let your heart go
(All these dreams)
Let your heart go
(Something to believe)
Let your heart go
(All these dreams)
Let your heart go
(Something to believe)
Track Name: When You Were Mine
Sweetness in your heart
You knew it from the start
The wicked in your ways
Oh I’m dead and gone by day

Shaking in your teeth
Give it up for free
Beggars in the night
Oh I’m looking for a fight
I’m looking for a fight

I told you that I’m the one
Who’s gonna take you back
To the time when you were mine

Better you beware
The sour in your scare
Raising up the flag
Well I don’t mean to brag

Shaking in your heart
Messed up from the start
Summertime’s anew
I’m looking for a clue
I’m looking for you

Ooh
Track Name: Setting Sun
Tell me a secret
I won’t tell anyone
Don’t need a reason
To chase the setting sun
Call me a liar
But I’ll do anything
To see you baby
Cause I’m not giving in

Tried and true I’ll say to you
It’s a lot to love someone
Tried and true my baby blue
Well I’ve got you on the run

Oh, I believe in a better day
No idea of what to do
Big deep breath and play it straight
Keep it all inside of you

Beautiful people
Come naked and stoned
On my horizon
Shine and be alone
There comes a rising
Solve the youth of man
A final reason
That’s where we began

Tried and true I’ll say to you
It’s a lot to love someone
Tried and true my baby blue
Well you’ve got me on the run

Oh, I believe in a better day
No idea of what to do
Big deep breath and play it straight
Keep it all inside of you

My body knows that you’re gonna go
Track Name: One Fine Day
Its like I’ve never slept before
Crowd my arms
Heavy lids and your
Love was always torn

Burn the bridges, I
Do that best
Not this time cause I’m
Gonna put it to the test
Water to the nest

I’m leaving for the war
Never say goodbye, never more
Gotta wake up out of this mess
I can never love you any less

Two birds find themselves alone, feel it in their bones, they’re screaming to be heard
Whose idea was it anyway, do you feel the same, we can be the first
One fine day I’m gonna make you mine, we will find the time, all of this I’m sure
(Whose idea was it yours?)

Swallowed up the air I, in a single breath
I’m a wound to love, this heart just needs a rest
I met my best friend’s baby, for the first time
Sweet and innocent, the future of our kind
The world stops in her cries

Two birds are skipping in the air, they’re a little scared, they waiting to be sure
Whose idea was it anyway, I will take the blame, as you were
One fine day I’m gonna make you mine, oh my my, all of this I’m sure
Track Name: Lucy Let Go
Go easy, on yourself
Just be cool, for your health
I will stand, on my own
Save the date in your heart
A single day can change the start
You have got nothing to lose

Speed it up again, time to phone a friend so late

She is so young and so pretty
Come on my baby loves to please
New York, you are so full of dreams
Let go let go
Let go let go
Going home, a final phase
How many years, bleed the days
Getting high, feeling low
Not yourself, anymore
Take a step, who’s it for
You’ve got, nothing to lose

Saw the open road I thought I let it go away

She is so young and so pretty
Come on my baby loves to please
New York you are so full of dreams
Let go let go
Let go let go
Let go let go
Track Name: LES
Let’s meet this week, on Stanton St
In a little place
When you walk down there, strangers in the air
I’ll be a little late
I’ll be a little late

Kids are out tonight, well it’s Friday’s fight
I’ve had enough
The subway mess, in your Sunday dress
Last night was rough
Last night was rough

Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh

Well it’s afternoon and you’re sleeping through
The lazy day
And you cannot be what you want to be
You feel your age
You feel your age

Sweet lies to me, na na na na na
Incredibly, na na na na na
Burning up in speed, na na na na na
Chasing after dreams, na na na na na,

Take time with me, fight side by side
With a little light
Come follow me, go for a ride
In the maker’s night
It’s a maker’s night

Sweet lies to me, na na na na na
incredibly, na na na na na
burning up in speed, na na na na na
Chasing after dreams, na na na na na,

Whoa, whoah oh oh
Track Name: City Lights
To your health, to your faults
A thousand doves hit the wall
Took my hands, took my eyes
Light the fire, start the night

And I don’t know what to say
And I don’t know what to do
But it ain’t easy running after you

City lights will shine
City nights are mine
The sweat is heavy
I’m already on fire

Breeze between the avenues
Sunset cool nothing to lose
Crown my heart for the kill
You’ll miss it here, you always will

And I don’t know what to say
And I don’t know what to do
But it ain’t easy running after you

City lights will shine
City nights are mine
The sweat is heavy
I’m already on fire
Track Name: Bottle Rocket
Kind of like it, straight up amphetamine, now I want to be
Bottle rocket down to the enemy, take it on your knees

For the record, I’d do anything, but you’re made of stone
Bricks and mortar, quiet surrounds you, find yourself alone

These nights are filled with anticipation, whoa
Stars dance on these streets and flood the pavement, whoa
Now we’re moving on and kissing favorites, whoa

Light a fire, warm yourself around, like you want to be
Part of a person, part of a masquerade, that’s immunity

These nights are filled with anticipation, whoa
Stars dance on these streets and flood the pavement, whoa
Now we’re moving on and kissing favorites, whoa

And the city changed but you cannot be late or be swept away
And the day will fade. On your own
And I wished today that I took your name, well it’s not too late
Letters change, but you will be the same

Leave a message that you will never get, I understand it now
We are living, always catching up, well it might get loud

These nights are filled with anticipation, whoa
Stars dance on the streets and flood the pavement, whoa
Now we’re moving on and kissing favorites, whoa

And the city changed but you cannot be late or be swept away
And you will fade on your own
And I wished today that I took your name, well it’s not too late
Letters change, but you will be the same
Track Name: Vienna
Stranger times, stranger places
False security
Tried my best to love you

Can’t be bought, can’t be restless
Open up your eyes
You decide for yourself

There are reasons for you and I
Faded whispers through the night
Never felt so alive
Tell our fortunes in the light

Tell me what can I say to you tonight, to stay
With me and I will make up your mind, light
Me up, we will be just fine, today’s
The first day of the rest of our lives

Faded walls, as the sun drops
Stay here for awhile
We will live inside

It’s a thought, trading places
I come now as you go
We are looking for a home

There are reasons for you and I
Faded whispers through the night
Never felt so alive
Tell our fortunes in the light

Tell me what can I say to you tonight, to stay
With me and I will make up your mind, light
Me up, we will be just fine, today’s
The first day of the rest of our lives
Track Name: How Do You
The sweetest thing you ever did, I remember you were so kind
Waking up the morning light I’m so glad that we’re alive

How do you
Fall in love
Leave it up to the skies above
Heavenly child, it’s snowing outside, won’t you
Hold my hand
Hold my hand

The winter winds, I can see between, your eyes begin to part
You cannot feel your body but for the beating of your heart

How do you
Fall in love
Leave it up to the skies above
Heavenly lies, keep it inside, won’t you
Hold my hand
Hold my hand

That day you wore a yellow dress,
I had no chance
You’re beautiful and I confess
No one else compares

Let go of my hand (oh oh oh)
Let go of my hand (oh oh oh)

Let it go, these words cannot convey what I really mean
Try so hard to play it cool well do you believe in me?

How do you
Fall in love
Leave it up to the skies above
Heavenly lies, keep it inside, won’t you
Let go of my hand (oh oh oh)
Let go of my hand (oh oh oh)
