Track Name: Take Off
Empty seats with tired faces
silence spreads between the aisles
it's midnight in the airport baby
and I miss you across the miles.

Fluorescent glow and shadowed hallway
the shops are closed the checkins too
the janitors do their swaying dance across the starlit floor
and I wanna dance with you.

And now they're calling out my flight
travellator's rocking me to sleep
the plane is waiting now to fly me in a dream
where the clouds are counted sheep.
Track Name: I'm Just a Sheeple For Your Love
Candle light, smile bright
The shadows promise me your dark delight
We head down the road outta town
The future's certain when no one's around and
I will follow you
I will follow you

Your dad's asleep, the cider's cheap
It tastes better when you're in too deep
But the music's loud, you dance proud
You always knew how to draw a crowd and
I will follow you
I will follow you
I will follow you

We reminisce by dawn's kiss
I fall asleep in the dewy abyss
And then you're gone, you've moved on
I keep forgetting you never stay long and
I will follow you
I will follow you
I will follow you
Track Name: The New Sad
The new sad, rides her bike down south.
Rents a beachside room
throws out all her clothes

The new sad wants to be alone
wants to write a book
and pretend she's home

But you can't fool me.
No you can't fool me, I've seen the picture in the back of your wallet.
No you can't fool me.

The new sad, likes to sleep around
Likes to prove she's free
sleeping underground

But you can't fool me
No you can't fool me, I've seen the tattoo on your inner thigh,
I've kissed the darkness holding up your every lie
Oh little girl, you can't fool me.

The new sad
The new sad
Track Name: The Gin Waltz
I don't know, where it all went wrong.
There must have been a sign, must have been a song,
Must have been a turn in our little dance that I missed.
And you once told me that winter would come,
cold and spite would see us both undone.
I told you then, I loved the snow, I still do.

Bring me another glass of gin.
Lets see the new year in.
Tell each other lies before the sunrise and pass the new year in sin.

I don't mean it when I say we're through,
Your eyes don't say it, when I'm mean to you.
I forgive you for all the things I've done in your name.
And sex might raise its ugly head,
but you were always so beautiful in bed.
One more time before the clock strikes 12 to dull the pain.

Bring me another glass of gin.
Lets see the new year in.
Tell each other lies before the sunrise and pass the new year in sin.

And in the morning's scalpeled grin
I see the shimmer of your snowfall skin
Ice and lime and the passage of time, it's all gone.
And everything is frozen, everything is still
Everything is broken by our solid will
Last night's fire and consuming desire burnt out.
Track Name: Oh Giselle!
To the rhythm of a gypsy beat
In the quarter, where the vampires meet
on a man, with his collar raised in shame
it starts to rain

With the longing of an empty glass
through the window where his childhood passed
to the backing of a late night train
he calls her name, he calls her name

And far away across the wine-dark sea
a woman hears her name upon the wind
she paints her face on, pulls on her battledress
and greets the night.

Oh Giselle! I delighted in you
and with jealous eyes, the gods did too
so they took the light that grew
inside of you

Oh Giselle! I delighted in you
and with jealous eyes the gods did too.
So they took the light that in you grew.
Track Name: Second Time Around
First time, I didn’t understand
I took a train, I hailed a cab
Always rushing in the wrong direction
My radar jammed, compass cracked

But now I know
How fast it goes
Have to take it slow
Second time around
I will be there for you

Through the dark days, the early rise
On the treadmill that never stops
Coming home when you’re sound asleep
Hold my breath, kiss your cheek

But now I know
How fast it goes
Have to take it slow
Second time around
I will be there for you

Watched a comet from Midsummer Hill
They say it won’t be back in my lifetime
Shall not see its light, but I know you will
I wish upon your star, pray that it goes far
Blazing through the galaxies

Precious moments, shells upon the shore
They lie scattered in the sand
Footprints leading down to the sea
Jump the waves, take my hand
Track Name: In Another Life
A seaside town, an autumn night it was
the salty air, your laugh, the music in us both.
The theatre seats, the silent audience,
our hushed up revelry, I wished our dance would never end.
And when you spoke I looked up at the moon,
was it confession, or a warning not to stay?
You wondered if I'd heard you say
“In another life.”

Now I am old, but I have wisdom,
enough to understand, how the story goes.
Your body is the page your tale is told upon,
So I won't look away, when the curtain falls.
So many people floating round the sun,
to hope to find someone is more than flesh can bear.
So take a bow and now I'd stay,
in another life.

A seaside town, an autumn night it was,
The music in us both and I still hear your laugh.
It calls to me across the stage, in another life
In another life.
