Track Name: Disappear
When we were walking, side by side
I told you that I was a ghost and you wanted proof
So I said,
"Watch me, I'll disappear"
I told you,
"Darling, don’t you fear"

I’ve been walking the world for some time
Searching for a sliver of daylight
That I could call my home
And when I looked into your bright eyes
I saw my reflection for the first time
You said to me,
“Hello”

Ever since I asked you for your name
You've been written on my heart
Oh darling, darling
We two ghosts were meant to be
Because we see eachother straight in the heart, don’t we

I’ve been walking the world for some time
Searching for a sliver of daylight
That I could call my home
And when I looked into your bright eyes
I saw my reflection for the first time
You said to me,
“Hello”

You told me I couldn’t be a ghost anymore
You wanted flesh, you wanted bone, you wanted every piece of me
When I said,
"No"
You said,
"My dear,
Then it’d better for us both if you disappear"

I’ve been walking the world for sometime
(You wanted flesh)
Searching for a sliver of daylight
(You wanted bone)
That I could call my home
(You wanted every piece of)
And when I looked into your bright eyes
(You think it's best)
You saw my reflection but you didn't like me
(I'll leave you lone)
Quite for how I was

So goodbye
Track Name: Secrets Back
I know I ended it
And I’m not really in the place
To make demands
But I need everything back
No, I don’t care about the bracelets, the pens
The magazines I left
But it is too much to ask
I want all my secrets back
Every last one
Yea, every last one

So would you mind if I just took your memories
Bottled them up
And threw them to the sea
Just the ones of me
And would you come on over one last time
Whisper in my ear
Return each secret one by one
Until they're safely back where they belong

There was a time
When we were practically kindred spirits
But we’re far, so far from that now
And it feels rather strange
Cause you knew me so well, you knew everything
But oh, oh how much I’ve changed
It doesn’t match up, no
We don't match up like we used to

So would you mind if I just took your memories
Bottled them up
And threw them to the sea
Just the ones of me
And would you come on over one last time
Whisper in my ear
Return each secret one by one
Until they're safely back where they belong

I swear this is the last you'll hear from me,
Darling
I told you I was unpredictable from the start
My brain doesn't get along with my heart

So would you mind if I just took your memories
Bottled them up
And threw them to the sea
Just the ones of little old me
And would you come on over one last time
Whisper in my ear
Return each secret one by one
Until they're safely back where they belong
Track Name: Alien Lullaby
Dear humans of planet earth
Hello, we come in peace
We’ve heard of your troubles there
So we thought we take our UFO
And come over
See what the fuss all about

We were wondering what the trouble is
If we were you humans there
We’d never have a single complaint
Can you picture yourselves wandering round
On a desolate plane
Shrouded in pink, pink clouds and total quiet
Every day

How can you quarrel and fight
Over money and other such meaningless things
Freshwater springs and the autumn breeze
What more could you possibly need
Did you know, you’ve got the nicest planet around

We were wondering what the trouble seems to be
If we were you humans there
We’d never have a single complaint
Can you picture yourselves wandering around
In a silent place
With no lights, electricity, or plants that grow
Nothing but SOS calls from outer space

Oh, you people
Have the sun and the moon and the stars
And it's so very lovely
Track Name: We Don't Mind
Socked feet sliding
On worn wooden grooves
You're up with the crows
Page turning
Scribbling
I wake to the smell of coffee
And you

The draft that comes in
From under the front door
Is our friend,
Along with the rain dripping down
Through cracks overhead
We don't mind it

Monday, Wednesday, Friday
Green tea clouds and stories
Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday
Coffee chats and quilts
And Sundays, we don't get up
We stay in bed and dream
It's winter
Track Name: Rose Colored Glasses
Your creaky boxspring, childhood bed
You would safely rest your head
Come back to this town
Twenty years it hasn’t changed
The grapevines and the porch step
Are the same

As when you were a child and you
Had rose colored glasses on
Where have they gone
Your vision’s frigid blue

The instrument you loved to play
Down the cellar, whispers your name
Come back to this house
These fifty years have been inane
The cross stitched clichés and your family’s
Still the same

As when you were a child and you
Had rose colored glasses on
Where have they gone
Your vision’s frigid blue

What would you give, god, anything
To hear their singing, valleys ring
Come back to the place

Return to yourself
You’re lost and your childhood’s been on the shelf
For too long

As when you were a child and you
Had rose colored glasses on
Where have they gone
Your vision’s frigid blue
