Track Name: When You Come Around
When you come around; come around to me
When you hold me down; hold me under thee
Take me on the road
Take me on your own
Time to take from me
Track Name: Plaster
violent is your method
i choose romance as my weapon
love is good and kind
leaves a stain behind
that no cop can ever find

court is now in session
as a victim as confession
i would write it down
but my hands are now bound
left to tell to you
by mouth

i take the oath
God's honor i boast

of those i killed so willing
it's not much, but it's a living
now for every failure
my heart is my jailor
sending me back to Australia

see all i got going
the darkness is your not knowing
Track Name: Joseph
Joseph, did you ever notice
how'd you get to grow so endlessly appealing
now you say you're leaving,
on the path you covet,
u c LA, Harvard
not for the fainthearted
boy i know it's hard
believe me, believe me

if it comes, if it comes, if it comes, if it comes too easy
then it's not real,
no not real
not real love,
not real,
love

Joseph, for my sins I'm sorry,
give to me your body
and for when I am unkind
give to me your brown eyes
i'm lying, loose and failing
sailor go on sailing
go n be amazing,
go and be...
believe me, believe me


if it comes, if it comes, if it comes, if it comes too easy
then it's not real,
no not real
not real love,
not real,
love
Track Name: On My Mind
you leave without goodbye
it's cold in January on the east side
i sigh to the morning, to the early morning light
you can run, i don't fight
i play a long game right

when there's not a thing about you i know & do not like
when i'm with you there's not a bad thought in my mind
except for, wanting some more of your
love in the morning in, in the early morning
in my bed or my hallway

you haunt the places that we've been hanging round
when i go to them, yes, i get a little down
but what i found again is something i felt forever gone
guess this means i'm moving on;
finally moving on

all this time it's only time that can tell it's in the timing
i mighta got you wrong, you can't blame me for trying
if you're leaving for a better time;
i understand your reasons but you're still on my mind
on my mind, on my mind
darlin you're still on my mind

you know drama, i don't want of it
i found something good, don't want to stop it
i see your logic, i don't care for it
you say 'it's all normal', well, here's one for you

i still got your smell on my body, on myself
don't feel a need, for anybody else
you do your thing, won't go bothering you dear
keep your heart and mind near
keep them clear

'cos all this time it's only time that can tell,
it's in the timing
i might have got you wrong, you can't blame me for trying
and if you're leaving for a better time,
then i understand your reasons
but you're still on my mind, on my mind, on my mind
darlin you're still on my mind

you're quick to speak i...
take my time
but i'm sure that i'll be seeing you somewhere down the line
& when i get back to you, hope i get to find
that i've been on your mind
like you've been on my mind
until that time
you'll be on my mind
Track Name: What Could Have Been
When night comes, knocking, in
when springtime breezes beckoning
when my mind goes tumbling
down what could have been, what could have been

When i hear my lover sing,
when winter, museum visiting
when bones & breath are trembling
with what could have been, what could have been

I'm seeing things, i'm seeing things again
seeing messages that don't exist
seeing signs in stars, in subways, in a clue
see what could have been, what i could have been to you

When the bloodline starts to thin
when family photographs fading
when real is just remembering
what could have been, what could have been

When i lost my way again
when home's hard to point, and pin
can't sleep for dreaming
what could have been, what could have been

Then i'm seeing things, i'm seeing things again
seeing messages that don't exist
seeing signs in stars, in subtext, in a clue
see what could have been, what i could have been to you

When your heart is on the mend
when you come by here again
when you start to stop thinking
what could have been, what could have been

When I'm waiting for these things
when to forgive and forgiven
where once i'd worry, wondering
what could have been, what could have been

What could have been, what could have been.
