Track Name: No Western
There ain’t no western and there ain’t no love
For the actor’s son, man of the cloth
Sweet sixteen or father of three
Well the joke’s on me, the joke’s on me

I’ve met your sister and your mother
I’ve kissed your calcium teeth
I’ve seen your other lovers
There’s none as pretty as me

You can pretend that you don’t care
When I don’t come clean
Because I swear I wasn’t there
But we both know me
A little better than that

A little better than that
Track Name: God, Sunrise, Sunset, Gag
God, sunrise, sunset, gag
There’s nothing quite as beautiful
Nothing I’ve ever had
You come to me at midnight
You come to me through a storm
You’ll tear apart this winter
You’ll destroy anything I need you to

Oh terror, terror brings out the best in me
With broken frames and half finished degrees
In places I should never see
In places i won’t ever be again
again from the highest floor
The blizzards rise the hammer falls
And sunrise comes and brings the dawn
Yeah sunrise comes and takes it all

But behind this haircut I’m still sixteen
And you’re still distant and I’m so mean
But everything is right with me

And behind this haircut I’m twenty one
And you’re not here, and I’m no fun
And everything is going wrong
Yeah everything goes wrong

And then for what seems like forever
I fall asleep and dream myself away
It’s ‘58 and there’s a country for me to save

From golden bows dug in foreign shores
To mountain tops and forest floors
The sunrise comes and brings the dawn
Yeah sunrise comes and takes it all

But behind this haircut I’m still sixteen
And you’re still distant and I’m oh so mean
But everything is right with me
Yeah everything is right with me

And behind this haircut I’m twenty-one
And you’re not here, and I’m no fun
And everything is going wrong
Yeah everything goes wrong

And behind this haircut I’m twenty-four
And you could be anyone
And I could be more
And sunrise comes and it brings the dawn
Yeah sunrise comes and it takes it all
Track Name: Aux Yeux Morts
I see your face
In the creases of my sheets
In the minutes when I lie idle
And darkness starts to creep

When disaster strikes
In the middle of the road
In the corner of your office
In the inches
Beneath my bed

And everything we said
And everything we made
Once was written, twice delayed

And everything we said
And everything we made
Once was written, twice delayed
Track Name: Toronto
This city swallowed us whole tonight
Took our time and gave us everything
Dead trees and worthless rebellions
Forced smiles and bags in the hall

And naked legs worked their way slowly up the wall
And a blink and a kiss and it was dawn
And everything that was ever important
It wasn’t anymore

And if there’s time
We can remember how it all fell apart
And despite what we thought back then
There is beauty in breaking hearts

I know we will sleep tonight
But fucking hell I wish that we wouldn’t
I catch myself thinking I would give years of my life
For seconds more tonight

So shut my mouth around your tongue
Cos my words can’t change a thing
And as our hands fall through each other’s hair
Oh god let me linger here

She said
“All the things you don’t know about me
And all the things I’ll forget about you
Just remember where you are
Remember this and it will pull through”

And if there’s time
We can remember how it all fell apart
And despite what we thought back then
There is beauty in breaking hearts
