Hardwood 04:09
I can still feel The train pull on in She falls onto the couch and cries into his gin The glasses clink, my eyes open I said if I drink your wine, well I might get lonely too He spends the night in some hotel outside her room And he’ll never fall asleep, I’m scared how he looks at me And I said, oh don’t fall in love with me, I can’t get out of bed this week I’ll waste you like I waste my wine Just like I waste my days, my mind’s a maze — my god, your stillness amazes me, mmmm I know he’s hard in love now I’m glad I don’t know how hard and that I don’t see it at all I’m scared how much I could fall And I said, don’t fall in love with me, I can’t get out of bed this week My head’s like a battlefield, my soul is two oceans deep, oh Oh, don’t fall in love with me And I lay down right on the hardwood I lay down right on the tile And I really hate love songs, no I really hate love songs I hate that you love mine But don’t fall in love with my rhyme, I can’t get out of bed sometimes I wake up from two to three, my head’s in a pillow sea I cry holy gasoline and silence the loudest scream Imploding from ear to ear, I’ll grab you another beer What a jumpstart to hell we’d be Oh don’t fall in love with me

Lioness 03:33
Let’s talk about rain here, you and me Bottom of the half-blue-painted world to a big wide bed on a one-way empty street And she wrote you months ago and she kissed away the lonely when you left Let’s talk of Manhattan, New York State Smoking up a storm in Caledonia, playing in a bar somewhere and anyways I can see you, just one drink and you’ve drank away the mask to hide your love And don’t you waste that pretty mind Like a lioness passes you by, I’m gone — one kiss is all I’m good for Love me to leave me, shut me like your front door Cigarettes and cowboy blues, like a Lioness, you Play me like a drum, wake me when the heat of the morning comes — No. Let’s talk about — No! See what you said? We were overdue — didn’t know how to handle you You paint me with the brush of your words — play me or play for me, which one’s first? Oh, and now I have the sense to let you go You really got to me with your lionhearted charm Just like my lover never used to be, so worried sick to my alarm And his humble home, oh I should have known That you would waste that pretty mind Like a lioness passes you by, I’m gone — one kiss is all I’m good for Love me to leave me, shut me like your front door Cigarettes and cowboy blues, like a Lioness, you Play me like a drum, wake me when the heat of the morning comes — No. [Guitar solo] You really got to me with your lionhearted charm Just like my lover never used to be, so worried sick to my alarm And like that lonely little lazy lover, I, I try to try to pull myself together, the The storm’s coming down in rainy weather, just love me to leave me, play for me to play me Cigarettes and cowboy blues, like a lioness you Play me like a drum, wake me when the heat of the morning comes — No.

Daddy, oh daddy, don’t make me go I can’t bear another month out on the road And it feels like free-falling, I don’t have a place to call home So daddy, oh daddy, don’t make me go Mama, oh mama, don’t let me down I’ve been bleeding, I’ve been needing solid ground I’ve been hugging the toilet seat, on my knees praying aloud So mama, oh mama, don’t let me down Every year’s like a raceway, I’ve ended it off on my own Everything that I love’s always taken from me, I don’t know Lover, oh lover, don’t make me cry I’d be happy, well I could be, by your side And I’m not good for loving, I’ve never been, oh but I try So lover, oh lover, don’t make me cry Every year’s like a raceway, I’ve ended it off on my own Everything that I love’s always taken from me, I don’t know Fortune, oh fortune, don’t let me die Every city says I’m pretty, oh but they lie There’s just so much to give and so much to live — so little time So oh, my friends, oh my lover — oh my father, oh my mother And oh, fortune, you’re my saviour every time Oh lover, love me a home / And daddy, don’t make me go

Animal 02:55
Love let me down, love let me down Love let me down, love let me down My mind is an animal — its cage, my flesh and my bone And I prayed for a miracle and watched my dead skin grow My body is mocking me, it’s my fatal anomaly And my mind is a Kollowitz, pastel in every scar And my breath is so useless to every bleeding heart And my body is mocking me, it’s my fatal anomaly Yeah, my body is taunting me, for the woman I’m supposed to be Love let me down, love let me down Love let me down, love let me down And our lips are so violent, they speak with little head And my hatred’s a narcissist, beguiles me into bed And my body is mocking me, it’s my ugly autonomy Yeah, my body is mocking me, it’s my fatal anomaly Love let me down, love let me down Love let me down, love let me down Yeah, my body is taunting me, for the woman I’m supposed to be Oh, my body is killing me, every piece is inflammable, Ooh, and my mind is an animal My mind is an animal

Darkness strips me down to the skin, rip my heart and crawl right on in Go and do — I bet he could, too He’s out drinking miles and miles away, if he wants me he doesn’t say I miss you — well that’s all he could do And that’s why I don’t fall in love, no no, that’s why I don’t fall in love And that’s why I don’t fall in love, no no, that’s why I don’t fall in love I’ve had dreams of living alone, told myself I’d be best on my own Every night, and I turned out just fine Winter seeping in through my shoes, every day I’m calling the blues Out by name, and they’re all just the same And that’s why I don’t fall in love, no no, that’s why I don’t fall in love ‘Cause all love comes with danger, to me it’s a stranger, oh, that’s why I don’t fall in love In lyrics I’ll use you, I can’t bare to lose you so that’s why I don’t fall in love And I’m sorry but I can’t risk another goodbye so that’s why I don’t fall in love And I know when you kissed me I fell far too quickly so that’s why I don’t fall in love

I heard the thunder and cried, and you weren’t in your usual space The sun was out today and last night when you came to my place — and I saw All my friends and their sharp teeth, I don’t want you to leave me I don’t wanna be alone anymore, I can’t go home anymore, so stay with me Hotel beds and their white sheets, just like prisons where I sleep I don’t wanna be alone anymore, I can’t go home anymore, so forgive me Well I went out and bought matching mittens in two different languages with somebody new And you’re swept by your girl but I’m seeing the world but I keep coming back to you Ooh, me and my sharp teeth, oh I dream of you nightly February in Buffalo, ooh you’ll never know, where you’ll come to me Say goodbye and I’m lonely in this dark empty room — see? I don’t wanna be alone anymore, I can’t go home anymore, so forgive me Ooh, let me in deep, and come back just to touch me I don’t wanna be alone, not at all — I’m heading home until fall And I’m sorry for all that I’ve said Just forgive me — and the teeth in my head I’m just in my head It’s all in my head

She said I am a mountain and a mountain I will be My feet are pools of magma, my head’s the tallest peak And if my heart gets broken, lots of snow will cover me But she said I am a mountain, and a mountain I will be She said I am a mountain and my arms are strong as hell, but my Mind is chasing tail, trying hard to find itself And if there is an avalanche, I’ll take down every tree But she said I am a mountain, and a mountain I will be Out in the cold, oh wind come blow He let me go, I should have known But she said I am a river, flowing stronger than before 
I told her that I missed him, but I missed myself more And God, I will be damned if love and loss are all I see But I know I am a river, let the water swallow me Gone with the snow, oh let me go Out in the cold, oh here I go She said I am a mountain, and I said I am the sea I’ll sing in every windstorm, I’ll rock myself to sleep I knew he was my curse and I tried hard to set it free But she said I am a mountain and I said I am the sea, no She said I am a mountain, so a mountain I will be My cliffs are wild and rocky but my mind is toxin-free! No — Time can really hurt, but it’ll never ruin me But she said I am a mountain and I said I am the sea, no, no
 Yes I said I am a mountain, standing tall and standing free, whoa Yes I said I am a mountain, you can never conquer me No, you can never conquer me
