I might send you mellow D's in Moll And you might draw them prettily on your wall Breaking your heart is the sweetest Breaking your heart Breaking your heart is the sweetest game If your heart isn't doing what you say the wind might have led it astray When you joined in dancing with the first summer rain Well he knew you were longing for pleasure and a little pain

Her clock is hammering beats into my thoughts my brain is steaming since I've learned to ignore my heart A tram is driving empty through the fall, my dear while dead meat is waiting for the butcher's call in here A body is a burden and a mess when its one and only function is to forget Someones voices are getting through the wall, my dear while dead meat is waiting for the butcher's call in here It's 9 to 3 AM on every clock she has to set them new when she gets up A lonesome tank is strolling through the fall, my dear while dead meat is waiting for the butcher's call in here

The Wind 04:11
I wish I was the wind babe, that leaves you easily through the window in the morning and only comes back when he's pleased And if I was the wind babe I'd pretend I never cared And all the sorrow that's in my mind now Would melt up in the air But I, oh I, I'm not the wind babe tears that I shed fill my feet up with led I, oh I, I'm not the wind babe the places I fled I couldn't forget I wish I was the wind babe that whirls your thoughts around and just when you think you figured it out I'd vanish in the ground And if I was the babe I'd only stay a while in the winding douce and fortness of the wrinkles in your smile Oh I, stand in the landscape grounded with duct-tape fealing my own weight while the war is in full spade all i do is wait

Stone Love 03:41
Can I come over just to talk I forgot my light and it's getting awful dark And could you not ask me how I feel today Cause I don't feel today When I loved you like a stone I didn't mean to break all your bones And if my fire is burning low Doesn't mean I'd let you go If I knew I'd let you know What in the world made me so sad But I was never good at that But what you mean to my is so unspeakably easy I left my worries back at home I thought I'd only need them when I'm all alone But now that your tears are running down on my cheek Next time I better bring them here with me

Oh could you check these tests once again considering that everything you teach us never really reached us in our heart of hearts and did we ask for that? I don't think so, did we? do we look like laundromats you can just fill up with a couple of old socks just turn a knob to make it cold or hot and for a couple of bugs you make it start or stop and get it back all clean and folded together we can make things so much better we can make things so much better we just want to feel needed we need to feel loved we'd love to be taken care of oh this place could be so much warmer here without your solid armor if you teach what we need but the people that teach you didnt teach you that either we burn out way too fast like a match you hold upside down like a distant star we still give a spark but we're already long gone could you recalculate, please what it's worth at the end of the day if we spend our youth tryin to suit everyone eight hours a day for an hour of fun sitting on rails doing our nails and never, never, never getting ourselves together we can make things so much better we can make things so much better we just want to feel needed we need to feel loved we'd love to be taken care of oh this place could be so much warmer here without your solid armor if you teach what we need but the people that teach you didnt teach you that either we can make things so much better

Nestling 02:54
And at the end of the night get out of the dark boy the time is right Forget about your fears and the tears you cried at night There's a new born in the nest that only needs your very best When my eyes dim to the light open up your heart boy and share with me your sight Tell me what you see please describe your dreams to me Leave your forebear in the nest go out and live your very best
7.
Can we meet up at quarter to three I need to tell you about a discovery I made I belong in your heart And I should have known right from the start Four o'clock is also fine with me Gonna wrap my message in a melody I wrote I belong in your soul Without me there's nothing but a hole This might come across like a little surprise since we haven't met in such a long time I belong in your arms and I promise to keep you save and warm I belong in your arms I belong in your soul I belong in your heart I belong in your home You is where I belong

She is walking through the sand As she playfully runs her fingers through the willow And she's thinking of a man Who's got his head deep in the pillow And she cannot understand What has happened to her man What might have made him so sad Can't he see, there's a rainbow in the sunlight When she smiles into his face He's just wordless, turns around And she cannot understand What has happened to her man

On white wolves we ride with bandaged eyes we go where the blue winds grow Dreams we had became walls instead now we go where the blue winds grow Hold on we're almost there we go to where kids send their imaginary friends away Blackbirds scream and take off their feathering go on you can't go wrong Hold on we're almost there we go to where kids send their imaginary friends away
