Track Name: I Want To Know
Don't care about your money
Don't care about your taxes or your fights
Like you don't care about my stories
All the monsters that haunt me overnight

It feels so good
It feels so delightful when heroes win
I wish you were aware of it
The times I've been forced to save my skin
Maybe you'll know when I am heartbroken

I want to know, I want to know
Is it all baby talk to you?
If I'm worried, if I'm hurting
Will you be there?
I want to know, I want to know

Time is on your side, honestly
But I have got honest on mine
I am completely sure

I want to know, I want to know
Is it all baby talk to you?
And if I were a little older
Would you take me into account too?

It feels so helpless
Track Name: City Of Raleigh
The city of Raleigh has always been too far away
About four thousand miles from your old apartment
The city of Raleigh takes its name from a Walter
But you knew that, didn't you?

It's easy for you to say when you're the one on a ship
And we're here on the docks
If movies taught us anything
The ones who stay are the ones who die
And easy for you to say
You were brave, the first to jump
You tumbled off the cliff
And made it safely to the sea

We'd stay up at night, talking and talking
I'd break down sometimes, seeing you leaving

Boarded planes are taking off
All our friends, our times, our memories became cheap souvenirs
I can't ask you to stay, but I want you hanging around

I might blame you, I might try to make you cry
America's fancy and all
But here, by our side, is where you belong
My good friend Ervin
I need you here to carry on

It's easy for me to say when I'm the one on the docks
And you're out on a ship
If movies taught us anything
The ones who part always get killed
And easy for me to say
When I've always been so blind
And now I see it
I found out that Walter's me
Track Name: Fontana
A subway station (BCN) has held for decades the secrets of men
With teens in love and harmless freaks
Fontana's secrets are hard to keep
You'd think the station's nothing special
Well, it kind of is to me
With just four benches and a streetlight
Subway entrance to my world

There I was, and there were you
What the hell were you thinking when he came too?
With torn red jeans and green suede shoes
The one you fucked and cared about
Heaven holds a place for those denied, just like me

Couldn't you see this place was entirely different?
Couldn't you see that huge gateway to my heart?
But Fontana's a new start for me so I'll keep it here, alone
And I'll let it go

I'll lose some money and I'll lose some friends
I'll maybe let them down
But I can pack up when you're gone
Trying not to wake the dog
The single one that didn't always treat me
Like I'm trying to waste his time


Couldn't you see this place was entirely different?
Couldn't you see that huge gateway to my heart?
But Fontana's always been to close to the road
Some scotch, a bus
And I'll let it go

I'll lose some money and I'll lose some friends
I'll maybe let them down
But I can pack up when you're gone
Trying not to wake the dog
It feels like you have always been expecting
For someone else to come

Lose some money, lose some friends
Never let them down again
I kept the dog
Track Name: Look At Me Run, Dear
All of the things you could've said to me, while I sleep
Nothing wakes me up like sunshine
I'm really not that paranoid, my dear, not even close
I just want to hold you mine for now, hold you close

Look at me run, outside the shadows
Half of the faces are asleep
The just don't know that summer's here
Last thing I'd do is leave you, so let me convince you
Look at me run, dear

Too many words have been spilt tonight
You sometimes sound as no escape's there for you
Go ahead, the things we thought and said fed on regrets
You think you're you, but you're becoming them

Half of the faces are asleep
They just don't know that summer's here
I won't leave you, so let me convince you
Look at me run, dear
Track Name: Lonesome Cowboy, Solitary Peggy Sue
Lonesome rider, follow your way home
You cowboys leave no crumbs, just bullets and bone
Funny how the landscapes have changed throughout the years
Funny how the scars remain

Have you ever really slept like two strangers or two foes?
Are you proud of losing control?
And infancy of roads and calves
With some mates gone and some too fast
Good times couldn't last, you got caught
Fucking spider

So please give him back
Free the friend you've long held captive
A man so beat he thanks you when you let him sleep on the floor
If you had your time again, there's one thing I'd be sure of

He wouldn't even know your name
He wouldn't even know your name
He wouldn't even know your name

You took a path you made a vow
You fucked him up, you let him down
Where does it end, oh you black hearted fool

So please give him back
Free the friend you've long held captive
A man so beat he thanks you when you let him sleep on the floor
If you had your time again, there's one thing I'd be sure of

He wouldn't even know your name
He wouldn't even know your name
He wouldn't even know your name
Track Name: Oh, What An Awkward Day
I took a glance at the stuff that surrounds me
I took a glance and I started to panic
Anxiety kicked in
Honey, is my inhaler around?
What if new meanings and modern times
Have changed the way that we think and feel

You know what I think of it?

The day you find someone to love
Then will you mind them?
Or will you keep them in your phones?
If the day comes sooner than usual, and we sleep in
We forget things because we're old

Today's an awkward day for living
You and I, midst plastic kings and cristal eyes
I can't seem to cover the cracks
That sprang up between us as we walked down the tracks
So pity all you want, you can pity all you want

Everything looks so different
So why does it all feel the same?

The day you find someone to love
Then will you mind them?
Or will you keep them in your phones?
If the day comes sooner than usual, and we sleep in
We won't care

Today's an awkward day for living
You and I, midst plastic kings and cristal eyes
I can't seem to cover the cracks
That sprang up between us as we walked down the tracks
So pity all you want, you can pity all you want
Track Name: By Your Window
Do you think I'm a righteous person?
There's so much left to do, I still haven't done
I was lost in this void of unfulfillment
I still hoped to learn who I am
Passing days, pretending life as a guy with a plan
Kept the family calm
Someone who knows where he stands

I'm glad I missed the bus that awful sunny Monday
You know how great it is for a lost to be found
You made me aware of my existence, when I'd never given a damn
You braced my soul, you whispered to it and said
Keep in mind the day we seem to have forgotten,
All the things that made us rotten
To forget will mean we're dead

I never really chose my mother, I hope she chose me
But seeing the way that you entered the scene
You and I, we're meant to be
I'll believe in you and I will trust not a thing goes wrong
If it does, I won't ever hesitate
Because I know there's lots of others, but no one like me
No one like you and me

I can't tell what's right from what is wrong
Every time you're beside me, you're my smoke grenade
I am keen to prove I'll be strong
I'll be strong for you, for us two
No one like you and me

I never really chose my father, I hope he chose me
But seeing the way that you entered the scene
You and I, we're meant to be
I'll believe in you and I will trust not a thing goes wrong
If it does, I won't ever hesitate
Because I'll be waiting by your window
Track Name: Every Man
Every man must learn to start a fire
Every man must keep things to himself
Every man must learn to charm pretty women
In bars and discotheques
Be strong in the face of death
Always stand out from the rest

Every man must learn to start a fire
Every man must keep things to himself
Every man must be sweet, humble and caring
A full beard, a master of fucking and getting over the hill
It's funny how these things we sing mean everything to you
We feel so sorry for you

Let me show you around
Simple, really
Who cares if you don't shake with firm hands?
It's who you are
Every man must learn to start a fire
They could all write better words than these

We are not these men
Track Name: The Barbershop
Love tore my heart, broke my brain; it is no longer funny

Elisa stood on a picket and challenged her rivals
She said the morning ought to bring her hope, like the hope in the films
But Elisa had doubts; in fact, Elisa was scared
Is this the way we'll allow it to be?
We're the kids with no future
We carry the guilt of things we knew were wrong
But shut it, shut it till the end

Elisa, please don't work so hard
Spend some time with your children
Elisa, though the months are long
Remember you still have two weeks of vacation
Wake your husband with a morning kiss
One that might feel good but tastes kind of funny
The alarm goes off
The curtains draw back on the day
You're a star of the sixties'
Holding up your heavy burden
The weight of the hours and days
Still it feels as if summer's here at last
And you're knitting sweaters again

Old Elisa, we fight to save your mind
Little fighter, little fighter, little fighter
Feel like a portrait at the end of your life
Living confusion, a vanity failure
All of a sudden our Elisa drops dead
Did you save your heart?
Were you just a name on the long list of nameless people?
Really makes you wonder what life is worth
What a childish game we play

I went to the barbershop to get my haircut
Instead I came out with all my ideas all washed up
Track Name: The Münster Sights
I've always wanted to have a child or plant a tree or write a book
The true ways of ending eternal
But a sort of underlined out manner of doing things
I'll write a song, maybe an album

Some tunes will even be slow
Some words might be too clever by half
I will try to look my best and show my feelings
For once, I'll let you see them
I won't mind, because in the end these things don't even matter

I should've known the choice would be hard
I should've known between choice and regret
Regret's way too viler

The Münster sights overwhelm me
It's sad to see how much I've left undone
The Münster sights are magic
It's hard to let things go when they've not been

Goodbye Münster sights
Goodbye Münster sights
Till another life, that's when I'll have time
Live your life in peace and don't be scared of dying
