Track Name: Tuesday Evening
LYRICS

Daddy told me, love is tricky
But you darling are like a sun dancing
I cut my blond hair, You say it's not fair
I give a blank stare, 'cause I don't care

I love you more than chocolate
You're an opiate, you're my mate
I love you more than a cigarette
I took a mad bet on my fate

Mama told me, passion's dying
But you darling are like a sweet evening
Put on my red dress, you say it's a mess
I feel like poor Tess but you can't care less

I love you more than chocolate
You're an opiate, you're my mate
I love you more than a cigarette
I took a mad bet on my fate

Keep me warm 'cause I'm cold inside
Keep me close so then I won't fall
Keep me close so then I won't fall down

I love you more than chocolate
You're an opiate, you're my mate
I love you more than a cigarette
I took a mad bet on my fate
Track Name: Gimme Your Hand
LYRICS

The morning has come
A light shining on
Spared the dawn we once had
We follow the path
Sweet season and times
Bright and red a young day
Leave it all and be told

Gimme your hand and follow
That's what you got to do
Gimme your hand and follow
Tell me you it'll all be true

Morning has flown
Summers and pride
Lay your hand and be still
Come to me now
Shine in the night
Clear the skies we once had
See it all and be told

Gimme your hand and follow
That's what you got to do
Gimme your hand and follow
Tell me you it'll all be new

Gimme your hand and follow
That's what you got to do
Gimme your hand and follow
Tell me you it'll all be true
Track Name: Green Lights
LYRICS

A little glow in your eye
Small glimpse of remorse
Something in the way you sigh
Cold, broken voice

Don't go pleading just ask
Something in my chest collapsed
Were you wearing a mask
When time elapsed

All that time, when we shared
Green lights on the shore
All along when we cared
We saw something good
Something left behind

The river flew, the tide rolled back
The moon arose a thousand times
Everyone's to see the crack
In our love's prime

All the time that we shared
Chasing lights on the shore
All along when we cared
We saw something more
Something left behind

All the time that we spared
Fading lights on the shore
All along I was scared
For I saw something more
Something left behind
Track Name: Miss Me
LYRICS

Will you miss me when I'm gone
Will you miss me when I'm done
When my heart stops beating
But my head keeps spinning
Will you miss me when I'm gone

Will the old key fit the lock
Will the lovers stay awake
Will the hours turn the clock
And the swans on the lake
Will they miss me when I'm gone

And the lamps and the streets
And the bees and the hobos
And the seasons, the writers
And the flowers, the tables

(X2)

Will they miss me when I'm gone
Will they miss me when I'm done
When my heart stops beating
But my head keeps spinning
Will they miss me when I'm gone

Will the old key fit the lock
Will the lovers stay awake
Will the hours turn the clock
And the swans on the lake
Will they miss me when I'm gone

And the lamps and the streets
And the bees and the hobos
And the seasons, the writers
And the flowers, the tables

(X2)

Will they miss me when I'm gone
Will they miss me when I'm done
When my heart stops beating
But my head keeps spinning
Will they miss me when I'm gone

Will you miss me when I'm gone
Will you miss me when I'm done
When my heart stops beating
But my head keeps spinning
Will you miss me when I'm gone

Will they miss me when I'm gone
Will they miss me when I'm done
When my heart stops beating
But my head keeps spinning
Yeah you will miss me when I am gone
Track Name: Walking Around
LYRICS

I'm walking around with the sun on my back
I'm looking around, I am losing track
The old town feels so blue without you

I'm ghosting around, Am I safe and sound ?
I'm too prone to drama, I just lay in a coma
The congregation gathers and mumbles a prayer

I said Joe, where are you ?
I said we're tough with our bold love
Now you’re gone
I said Joe, where are you ?
I said we're tough with our bold love
Now you’re done

I'm hanging around, I was lost and found
I'm dancing alone on a common ground
The young leaves shines green and gold in the low trees

I stopped lurking around, you're nowhere to be found
The night was too thick, we were playing tricks
The old town seems so new without you

I said Joe, where are you ?
I said we're tough with our cold love
Now it’s gone

Papadapadapadapada...

I said Joe, where are you
I said enough with this cold love
Now it’s gone
I said Joe, where are you ?
I said enough with this cold love
Now I’m done
Joe
