Track Name: Please Steal My Bike
Climbing trees in her summer dress before a night out in the city/
"If I close my eyes I think I can see"/
We sat out on the grass sharing drinks not saying much but/
Now someone new I can’t take my eyes off of her bruised legs on mine/

I hope my attitude belies the/
Fears I guard (I’ve got) from prying eyes/
I'd hate for any meaning/
To be lost in all my clumsy singing/

Four hours one hundred and fifty miles/
I read and dream of home all the while/
We sat outside the station and said our hasty goodbyes/
“I’ve had the time of my life and I guess I’ll see you next time”/

I hope my attitude belies the/
Fears I guard (I’ve got) from prying eyes/
I'd hate for any meaning/
To be lost in all my clumsy singing/
Track Name: Something Simple
In a dark room she stands/
Hands clasped and eyes pressed wide/
To try and make out/
Faces in the faint light/


Dust filled beams drifting in/
From the street outside/
Artificial sunshine to try/
And chase away the night/


Please wait just wait let’s try/
And keep this in perspective/
Maybe discard our inflated/
Sense of self importance/
Please wait just wait let’s try/
And keep this in perspective/
Maybe discard our inflated/
Sense of self importance/
Track Name: Fifty Nine
All the songs that I could never write/
Words and chords that will never see the daylight/
What a year it’s been, I sat and thought of the beginning/
Tried to remember all that’s happened all we’ve done.

There’s so much to say but there’s not enough time left to say it/
I miss all our friends but I’m just lucky to have met them/
And I never did tell you just how much she meant to me/
Maybe in another life.

This is no song of true love unrequited/
But it’s no childhood crush/
Something there, it’s so clear, better left unsaid/
Sometimes strangers make such close friends.

We barely talked but whenever we walked and her hand brushed mine/
Well I still think of those times as I lay awake at night/
There’s too much to say and I’m still not sure if I’ll say it but/
Maybe in another life.
Track Name: Don't Tell Me
I was going to avoid clumsy exposition by diving in/
Trying to find my voice again/
But I always end up chasing my own tail/
All my mistakes snapping at my heels/

A bad joke would have been a fitting start but/
I’m not daring enough for that/
Besides I feel more comfortable/
Just sticking to the facts/

My dear brother you are living in a fool’s paradise/
An idealistic world where I can never reside/
You know you’re right with all your heart/
Just like me. Just like everybody else/

Two people were sitting in the gutter, talking about honesty/
At least that’s how it seemed to me/
One turned to the other with her eyes lit by concern/
She took him by the shoulders and told him how it was/

“That kind of intense belief is a burden, don’t be so sure of yourself/
Don’t be so hard on your friends life will never be as simple as you planned/
And no-one ever has all the answers/
Just let people be; what makes you you is all that you believe”/

My dear brother you are living in a fool’s paradise/
An idealistic world where I can never reside/
You know you’re right with all your heart/
Just like me. Just like everybody else/
Track Name: Saving Snails
Walking home I’m happy half drunk so I think about/
What I want from my life/
And then I think about your face when it is flushed with/
The pleasure of youth and cheap wine/

Or how the songs my friends write keep unhappiness at bay/
Along with people I know and bands I don’t from across the land and the sea/
I know you’re not singing to me, but while your records play/
I feel a little bit better/

Yesterday a pretty girl smiled and set next to me on the bus/
Even though I smelled like stale cigarettes/
Sweat and beer/
We didn’t speak but it was nice just knowing she was there/

And to my best friend, who I don’t see as much as I’d like/
I always wish you were here/
Moving to this town is the best thing that I’ve ever done/
But not bringing you with me is the worst/

Oh it’s nights like this that make me feel alive/
Oh it’s nights like this that make me feel alive/
I’m so tired that I can feel it in my bones and there’s still/
Miles and miles to walk before I get home/
But its nights like this that make me feel alive/
Its nights like this that make me feel alive/
So maybe all of this will turn out alright/

You told me that you quit your job, and said/
“I don’t think peace of mind can be worth this place/
All I’ve got to my name is free time/
And I’m happier than I’ve been in weeks”/

You told me that you quit your job, and said/
“I don’t think peace of mind can be worth this place/
