Track Name: Funny Girl
Ooh, what do you say
what do you say
Can I be your funny girl
can I be your precious

I fell into the mirror
when you appeared with my head in your arms

Ha ha ha ha
let's all go out and
try to keep it together
put on a straight face

I fell into the medicine cabinet
when you sold all of my secrets

I was only a stranger
when you took me to bed with you
Oh, what do you say?
What do you say

Sitting on the backs of your knees I
had everything that I needed

I fell into the medicine cabinet
when you sold all of my secrets

I fell backwards through time again
when you turned to me, then I said

Ooh, what do you say
what do you say?
Can I be your funny girl,
can I be your precious flower?
Track Name: I Was Afraid
So you found yourself a new companion
you are still among my friends
Just hold this up to a different standard
we are not the same as them

Oh god, what a year it's been
Oh god, what the hell have I said?

Just look at us now,
I'm so sick
We're so sick and broken down
all the time

I was somewhere else
I was gone
For two weeks I was afraid, I was afraid

So you found yourself a new condition
upon which your soul will thrive
I'm gonna tell you something I've been thinking
just promise try not to cry

Oh god, what a ghost I've been
but all will soon be forgiven

Just go pour a drink
for me dear
would you please, I've had a day you won't believe

You were someone else
when you came
home last night, I was afraid, I was afraid

Oh, you never did me no good
Track Name: Pulling Strings
Anywhere I go
I will be there with you

Feather fall,
follow me
anywhere that I go

I get by
pulling strings
anytime you are gone

But it gets
so cold
but it gets so cold

Hold on,
my dear
I will be home so soon

But if I
fall away
I will see you someday

Easy come,
easy go
may we all find our love

When I see
you again
I will pour you a drink
Track Name: How Do You Have Your Love?
I re-engage my center,
call myself back home
maybe you should try
something different
than that?

I pull myself together,
calm myself back down
I was different then
but now I'm
better
than that

How do you have your love?
Where do you keep your pleasure?
What's on your mind right now?
How do you keep it together?

May you find yourself in a place of peace
You will be there
sooner
than that

Suddenly you will find you are falling asleep
It was easy then
now it's
harder
than that

How do you have your love?
Where do you keep your pleasure?
What's on your mind right now?
How do you keep it together?

Where do you keep your love
How do you have your pleasure
What's on your mind right now?
How do you keep together?
Track Name: Back Then
One day you will fall down
and I will catch you
Back then was so much better

But you give us such pleasure
I wish I could show you
Someday you will feel better

The air's so different now
and we are connected
Someday you will find out
Track Name: Sleep by the Ocean
Somehow
We're growing cold now
Who let this in
This chill is killing us
I don't know where it came from

But we're not,
we're not alone now
just put on your headphones

This is our first and favorite song
would you hum it along with me my love
Feel like I've seen your face before
don't know where but I know for sure

Oh,
but all of the devils
just whisper to me now
but it hurts just the same as before

Oh,
the darkness grows
what if you said no?
What would I do if you said no to me,
what would I do?

He knows
where to
go when he gets lonely
to the house beyond the river
where she lives

Sleep by the ocean
we have no patience
for what we used

Sound of the ocean
it keeps us sleeping
past when we're supposed to
Track Name: Ceiling Fan
Honey are you still ok?
You look at the ceiling fan
say you want to leave this place

Funny how it all makes sense
dancing with a different man
then the sun goes away

Never was a thing you said
Your love was just such a drag

Honey are still ok?
You look at the ceiling fan
say you want to beat this thing

Funny how it all comes out
sitting in a different light
then the sun goes away
Track Name: Flower Petals
Who put all these rusty nails into my skin?
Who pressed all these flower petals into
my eyes

How long
Goodbye
Sorry
my thoughts
are dead

Shall I go on and tell the story from the end?
Or was it you who went and messed it up this time

I hope
no one
treats you
the way
you treat me

God save
your soul
I hope
you find
some peace
Track Name: Arm Twister
Just to think that
I could never
have the courtesy

Just to tell you
every now and then
to have a good time

You're my messenger
on a bicycle
in a storm

With your headlights
so bright they burn
my eyes

But if I could
fall backwards
I would follow you

To the end
of the earth and
I'd die with you there

But we both know
there's no going
back to

The way things were
back then

Arm twister,
back burner
you are not welcome here

Take it all out
in the yard and
burn it
Track Name: Fall Right Over
I fall right over,
Try not to lose myself
My life is ending
I always mess it up
