Track Name: I Won't Try To Break Your Heart
I never tell you what’s on my mind
because the truth is
that you wouldn’t like it
my thoughts are under lock and key
they are in places you don’t see
and I won’t let you get to me

I always tell you where I’m going
when you’re around,
you see me every day
if you can’t tell what I’m thinking of
well, do you call enough?
and do you call this

I won’t try to break your heart
I won’t try to break your heart
I won’t try

I didn’t come here to play games
they are no fun to me
all your philosophies
tell me, love, why should I explain?
your life’s a fantasy
none of it’s real to me

though I try to pick my battles,
no matter what I choose,
you never seem to lose

I won’t try to break your heart
I won’t try to break your heart
I won’t try

I won’t try to break your heart
I won’t try to break your heart
I won’t try to break your heart
I won’t try to break your heart
I won’t try
Track Name: Go
oh, how badly I need an anchor
the shoreline’s fading fast
you go
I don’t follow

I’ve got this list of things I like
and a penchant for getting what I want
you’ve got some nerve and
a way with words
and no one should put it past me to lie

so if you know
what’s good for you, you’ll
go
cause I have gone too far and won’t go back
get wound up and don’t relax
you have got your resolve, I know
so go

I’ll admit I don’t play nice
when I know that your hands are tied
I’m the look
you’re the good book
I am waiting for a yawn or a
sigh

so if you know
what’s good for you, you’ll
go
cause I have gone too far and won’t go back
get wound up and don’t relax
you have got your resolve, I know
so go
Track Name: Drive All Night
another day is coming to a close
so I take off my clothes
and climb into our bed
I’ve locked the door, turned off the lights
and welcomed in another night
of wondering where you will sleep instead

or will you
drive all night, all night?
I hope you don’t
drive all night, all night
all night – all night

I miss the days when we could always write
before the postal strike
but we’ve still got the phone
seems every week you’re on the road
there’s always still another show
but I will wait right here
til you come home

so will you
drive all night, all night?
I hope you don’t
drive all night, all night
all night – all night

so will you
drive all night, all night?
I hope you don’t
drive all night, all night
all night – all night
Track Name: Never Will
hey! how have you been?
I know it’s been a while.
sometimes,
I still hear a song and
think of you.
do you do that too?

I heard your new band online –
they sound pretty fine, yeah,
they sound pretty alright.
I saw your new girl online –
she looks pretty fine, yeah
she looks pretty alright

I know we never really talked
and probably never will
probably never will
I hope it’s only for the distance

hey, how’s your brother?
I hope your dog is still around
and how are things at the café?
are you working there today?
yeah, I loved that place.

I bet it still rains all the time
it made me lose my mind
but I bet you do fine.
I hope you still laugh all the time
and that you didn’t change your mind
but I bet you’re doing fine…

I know we never really talked
and probably never will
probably never will
I know we never really talked
and probably never will
probably never will
I hope it’s only for the distance

I know we never really talked
and probably never will
probably never will
I know we never really talked
and probably never will
probably never will
I know we never really talked
and probably never will
probably never will
I hope it’s only for the distance
Track Name: Fine
you’re tearing my heart out
with every word you speak.
take me to the park
we’ll give in, in the dark,
and let the city fall asleep

I know it’s hard to see the time
ahead and not behind us

I have no doubts –
it’s just you, and the rest,
I can do without
now it’s only time
til I’m yours and you’re mine
and everything will work out
everything will work out
fine

I’m living backwards now
from the end to the start
think you knew it, all along -
I was right, it was wrong -
and you won’t break my
sweet little heart

I know it’s hard to see the time
ahead and not behind us

I have no doubts –
it’s just you, and the rest,
I can do without
now it’s only time
til I’m yours and you’re mine
and everything will work out
everything will work out

you’re tearing my heart out
with every word you speak
Track Name: The Needle
a needle, pulling thread
a needle, pulling thread
these are the things I do instead
to soothe my hands and heart
but not my head

the days are wearing thin
nothing lost and found is ever new again
I am on the mend
I am on the mend

wake up dear, it’s almost noon
you’ve got to get up and go to work soon
I’ve got some errands that I’d better do
see you tomorrow
yeah, sure
I’ll call you

a needle, pulling thread
a needle, pulling thread
these are the things I do instead
want to leave the house but I can’t get out of bed
