Track Name: Sweet
Well I know I hardly know you and I’ve mispronounced your name

and it’s all I do to think of you and hope you feel the same

Well if stupid is as stupid does then I’m the stupid king

Cause whenever I’m around you well, you’re my everything

Cause you’re sweet / You’re so incredibly sweet

Cause you’re sweet / You’re so incredibly sweet

Well the way you let me hold your hand in mine on Christmas day

It was serious and funny and I couldn’t stay

Well it’s not quite rocket science shot and spliced in super 8

But the time I spent with you that night well… it was great

Cause you’re sweet / You’re so incredibly sweet

Cause you’re sweet / You’re so incredibly sweet

Well I tried to write a letter but I couldn’t find the words

And I felt more like an albatross, awkward and unsure

Press pause, rewind, record, and playback if you lose your way

Or just leave your nightlight on at night and you’ll hear me say

That you’re sweet

(that you’re sweet, that you’re sweet)

You’re so incredibly sweet

(you’re so sweet, you’re so sweet)

’cause you’re sweet

(’cause you’re sweet, ’cause you’re sweet)

You’re so incredibly sweet

(you’re so sweet, you’re so sweet)

’cause your sweet
Track Name: What Do We Do Now?
What do we do now?
All the bands we loved are dead
I always think of you
But it won't be the same again

Losing touch with friends from home
Twenty-one, twenty-two
These last few months I've been meaning to phone
Twenty-two, twenty-three
But every time I do
It seems like I've got less to say to you

I only go home twice a year
Twenty-three, twenty-four
Cause when I do it feels so weird
Twenty-four, twenty-five
Nothing's quite the same
Except the Buckfast bottles and the rain

CHORUS
What do we do now
Now we're ten years older
The bands we loved are dead
The bands we loved are dead
I always think of you
Whenever I smell cider
But it won't be the same again

We reminisce back days long gone
Thirty-one, thirty-two
We kicked about with Kappa tracksuits on
Thirty-two, thirty-three
But both our lives are changed
And this conversation feels so strained

That awkward pause at the end of the line
Thirty-three, thirty-four
I've got to go but let's catch up some time
Thirty-four, thirty-five
But time goes by so fast
And we can't keep living in the past

CHORUS

Do you still drink
Down the local
Is the local still the local?
Do you still see much of Coia?
Now she's moved in with her girlfriend?

What do we do now?
All the bands we loved are dead
Track Name: Together Forever in Love
What do they know when they say I'm too young
As I get older and until my life is done
I'll be the one who had love that was true
They all had nothing, and I have you

We'll be together forever in love
Together forever in love
Together forever in love

I'll be your reason for starting your day
You'll be my true love in every way
I'll always need you, I promise that now
Through good and bad as long as this life will allow

We'll be together forever in love
Together forever in love
Together forever in love

My life is for living
I'll spend on giving you
All that I can
My heart and my hand

My life with you will shine brighter than gold
Memories of heaven for when I get old
Never again will I wanna run away
I didn't think that I could ever feel this way

We'll be together forever in love
Together forever in love
Together forever in love

Together forever in love
Track Name: You're So Cute
So you wanna have sex, no strings attached
I can't think of a better match
Talk about me behind my back
I wouldn't take any other bag

You're so cute when you ignore me
You're so cute when you ignore me
I don't know why you defer me
You're so cute when you ignore me

Think it's so sweet when I call you on the phone
And you pretend that you aren't at home
I give me a metaphoric phone
I don't know when to leave you alone

You're so cute when you ignore me
You're so cute when you ignore me
I don't know why you defer me
You're so cute when you ignore me

So you wanna have sex, no strings attached
I can't think of a better match
Talk about me behind my back
I wouldn't take any other bag

You're so cute when you ignore me
You're so cute when you ignore me
I don't know why you defer me
You're so cute when you ignore me

You're so cute when you ignore me
You're so cute when you ignore me
I don't know why you defer me
You're so cute when you ignore me
Track Name: Party Time
For so long, I loved you so shamelessly
You were never sure if you really never wanted to fall
Inside out 'cause I thought you were the same as me, you were just joking
But I wasn't joking, 'cause I didn't know you at all

I wanna know
When will you be mine?

Step by step and we're checking out the sound effects
Are there pictures of skylab falling down where you are?
Neck and neck and it always had the same effect, you know I mean it
But you didn't mean it, so you didn't give me a call

I wanna know
When will you be mine?
Yes, I wanna know
When will you be mine?
'Cause I think about it all the time

And it's party time and we're check-check-checking out the scenery
And it's all inside 'til I find, find, find out what you mean to me
And it's party time time and we're check check checking out the scenery
Smoke-smoke-smoking all the cigarettes 'til you find, find, find out what it means to me

I wanna know
When will you be mine?
Yes, I wanna know
When will you be mine?

It's not party time
It's not party time
And I think about it all the time
Track Name: Closer to Fine
I'm tryin' to tell you somethin' 'bout my life
Maybe give me insight between black and white
And the best thing you've ever done for me
Is to help me take my life less seriously
It's only life after all, yeah

Well darkness has a hunger that's insatiable
And lightness has a call that's hard to hear
I wrap my fear around me like a blanket
I sailed my ship of safety 'til I sank it
I'm crawling on your shores

And I went to the doctor, I went to the mountains
I looked to the children, I drank from the fountains
There's more than one answer to these questions
Pointing me in a crooked line
And the less I seek my source for some definitive
The closer I am to fine
The closer I am to fine

And I went to see the doctor of philosophy
With a poster of Rasputin and a beard down to his knee
He never did marry or see a B-Grade movie
He graded my performance, he said he could see through me
I spent four years prostrate to the higher mind
Got my paper and I was free

I went to the doctor, I went to the mountains
I looked to the children, I drank from the fountains
There's more than one answer to these questions
Pointing me in a crooked line
And the less I seek my source for some definitive
The closer I am to fine
The closer I am to fine, yeah

I stopped by the bar at three A.M.
To seek solace in a bottle, or possibly a friend
And I woke up with a headache like my head against a board
Twice as cloudy as I'd been the night before
And I went in seeking clarity

I went to the doctor, I went to the mountains
I looked to the children, I drank from the fountains
We go to the doctor, we go to the mountains
We look to the children, we drink from the fountain
Yeah, we go to the Bible, we go through the work out
We read up on revival, we stand up for the lookout
There's more than one answer to these questions
Pointing me in a crooked line
And the less I seek my source for some definitive
The closer I am to fine
The closer I am to fine
The closer I am to fine, yeah

He went away and you hung around
And bothered me, every night
And when I wouldn't go out with you
You said things that weren't very nice.

Track Name: Cast a Shadow (live on WRUV 2003)
The sandman is sending me a special gift
A sleepy dream memory of our first kiss
Cast a shadow in my direction
Cast a shadow in my direction
The sandman comes at night I have a request
A snapshot dreamy keepsake of your embrace
Cast a shadow in my direction
Cast a shadow in my direction
Cast a shadow in my direction
Cast a shadow in my direction
Cast a shadow over here
We'll shadow plays
We'll dig shallow graves
In my shady shallow cave
The shadow grows longer in my twilight sleep
'I wallow and remember you lock and key'
Cast a shadow in my direction
Cast a shadow in my direction
Cast a shadow in my direction
Cast a shadow in my direction
Bring back shadow of your affection
Cast a shadow in my direction
Bring back shadow of your protection
Cast a shadow...
In my... direction
Track Name: Live Forever
Maybe I don't really wanna know
How your garden grows
'Cause I just wanna fly
Lately, did you ever feel the pain
In the morning rain
As it soaks you to the bone?
Maybe I just wanna fly
Wanna live, I don't wanna die
Maybe I just wanna breathe
Maybe I just don't believe
Maybe you're the same as me
We see things they'll never see
You and I are gonna live forever
I said maybe I don't really wanna know
How your garden grows
'Cause I just wanna fly
Lately, did you ever feel the pain
In the morning rain
As it soaks you to the bone?
Maybe I will never be
All the things that I wanna be
Now is not the time to cry
Now's the time to find out why
I think you're the same as me
We see things they'll never see
You and I are gonna live forever
Maybe I don't really wanna know
How your garden grows
'Cause I just wanna fly
Lately, did you ever feel the pain
In the morning rain
As it soaks you to the bone
Maybe I just wanna fly
Wanna live, I don't wanna die
Maybe I just wanna breathe
Maybe I just don't believe
Maybe you're the same as me
We see things they'll never see
You and I are gonna live forever
Gonna live forever
Gonna live forever
We're gonna live forever
Gonna live forever
Gonna live forever
Gonna live forever
Track Name: Golden Girls Theme (Live at NYC Popfest 2009)
Thank you for being a friend
Traveled down a road and back again
Your heart is true, you're a pal and a confidant

And if you threw a party
Invited everyone you knew
Well, you would see the biggest gift would be from me
And the card attached would say
Thank you for being a friend
Thank you for being a friend
Thank you for being a friend
Thank you for being a friend
