Track Name: Sitting Here with Nothing Owing
Where does this begin.
The page is on the table and I look up at you.
Your eyes are brown, the room in your command.

She says what are you thinking, I’m thinking of going home.
And I don’t feel I have to be someone around you,
You always gave me that.

And all of a sudden
You look sadder than I’ve ever seen
You’re smiling at me

And all of a sudden
I think maybe I’ll only ever love you
I think of the years to come, and wishing I was here again
Making mistakes.

Funny I care now, sitting here with nothing owing
The last stage in giving up.
It happens in reverse

She says change comes, and I’ve never seen her wise
It can seems hard just to know your own nature
And I say the strangest things, it must be to keep this memory breathing

And all of a sudden
You look sadder than I’ve ever seen
You’re smiling at me

And all of a sudden
I think maybe I’ll only ever love you
I think of the years to come, and wishing I was here again
Making mistakes.
Track Name: Hissing Bitterness
I’m nothing like I’ve been showing
Further from it, closer to it
Distracted by the way you see me

To no alternative I run
The waves of thought, peddling
Treasuring my attention

Let me cry into these lonely hands
That touched each verse of skin the same
And desperate as I am,

That held your throat and bent your neck
And was so romantic
And so pathetic

Resting on your conscience is an image your are forgetting
The sound my laughter caught in your throat
And the hissing bitterness

It’s to god I prey when you break my heart
Call out my faith it’s full of holes
Full of cloaks and tricks
Full of bargains

But it’s where I rest,
When I’m tired of excess.

Faceless behaviours
Moving through my body
For immediate satisfaction
Wanting complements,
But not to hear them
