1. EVERYBODY’S GOING TO DIE

 

You know, everybody’s going to die

You know, everybody’s going to die

You know, everybody’s going to die

You know, everybody’s going to die

 

You know, everybody’s going to die

You know, everybody’s going to die

You know, everybody’s stealing your time

But who cares, everybody’s going to die

 

You know, everybody’s going to die

You know, everybody’s going to die

You know, everybody’s going to die

You know, everybody’s going to die

 

 

2. WALTER MITTY’S MONDAY

 

Morning news

and men with beards

my favorite chair

all new washed hair

I furnish late at night

 

Painted nails

and instant coffee

cigarettes

pictures of pets

your kiss after a fight

 

Taking my time

making it mine

 

And I just let the time go by

It makes me feel good so then why should I

act like it’s a monday

Yeah, I just let the time go by

It makes feel good so then why should I

act like it’s a monday

 

Takeout food

and morning sex

and mismatched socks

and late night talks

I stay in bed all day

 

Too much wine

and popcorn lunch

last minute trips

my dark red lips

the lilac bloom in may

 

Taking my time

making it mine

 

And I just let the time go by

It makes me feel good so then why should I

act like it’s a monday

Yeah, I just let the time go by

It makes feel good so then why should I

act like it’s a monday

 

 

3. THRILL OF MAKING OUT

 

Although strangers each and every friday night

in dark corners, for the thrill of making out

 

We'd meet, even though I'd rather be

there with someone else, and so would he

 

Aaaaaaah

Aaaaaaah

 

Things aren't pretty in the naked light of day

I move closer, but I'd rather turn away

Pounding headache and my clothes are on

the floor

He's not as handsome as I thought the

night before

 

Our eyes meet, and we both know that I've been

dreaming of someone else and so has he

 

Aaaaaaah

Aaaaaaah

 

Easy comfort and without having to speak

he knows as well as me I'll be back again next week

 

 

4. WISHING

 

Wishing, wishing, wishing, wishing this will pass

Longing for some distance, wishing this won't last

 

It’s time to close this chapter, already made up my mind

I move on heading forward and leave everything behind

 

Wishing, wishing, wishing, wishing this will pass

Longing for some distance, wishing this won't last

 

The sun sets over a field of barley that sways along the tracks

Don't know where I am heading, but I'm never going back

to the only place where I dared to land

And with no one to hold, hold your own hand

 

Wishing, wishing, wishing, wishing this will pass

Longing for some distance, wishing this won't last

 

Always running from everything, that makes you think more than you feel

Afraid that time will destroy me, afraid that it will heal

One part holding on, one part letting goIf

If I keep my eyes closed I don't have to know

 

 

5. TOO HEAVY

 

It’s time to go

to let go

How did we end up here?

Even if expected, how could I be prepared?

I laid all my cards in your hands

Your fingers were weak

We don’t need to talk or fight,

just let the silence speak

 

Was I too heavy, was I too heavy for you

Was I too heavy, was I too heavy for you

 

No no no no 

no no no no

We’ll work it out, just don’t go

No no no no 

no no no no

We’ll take it slow, slow, slow

 

Cannot carry it all, this crossroad of efforts

Rather we drift apart

than be lonely together

 

Was I too heavy, was I too heavy for you

Was I too heavy, was I too heavy for you

 

No no no no 

no no no no

We’ll work it out, just don’t go

No no no no 

no no no no

We’ll take it slow, slow, slow

No no no no

no no no no

We’ll work it out, just don’t go

No no no no

no no no no

We’ll take it slow, slow, slow

 

I laid all my cards in your hands

No no no no no

Ooh no no no no

 

No no no no

no no no no

We’ll work it out, just don’t go

No no no no, no no no no

We’ll take it slow, slow, slow

No no no no

no no no no

We’ll work it out, just don’t go

No no no no

no no no no

We’ll take it slow, slow, slow

We’ll take it slow, slow, slow

 

I let you go go go

 

 

6. HYMN

 

Wonderful; the land

where water hits the sand

Lost in ocean wind

where daydreams are all wrapped within

 

Our venue in the past

by blue scorpion grass

Peaceful and serene

at last

 

You and I alone

Shaded by the maple leaves

The world around us just kept moving on

 

Warm midsummer day,

we give ourselves away

I’ll be with you come what may

 

 

7. NOW GO

 

Night is warm the city roars

traffic, bars and open liquor stores

Woken by the stellar sky

and a streak of faintly, grey street light

 

What you don't have

you cannot lose

 

Voices all go on and on and numbs the pain of every hidden scar

And they all go on and on reminding you of who you really are

Just go

 

Calloused hearts need time alone

packing things that you two used to own

Tying laces way too slow

Made up reasons not to go

 

What you don't have

you cannot lose

 

Voices all go on and on and numbs the pain of every hidden scar

And they all go on and onreminding you of who you really are,

 

Just go

 

You need time, now go

You need time, now go

You need time, now go

You need time, now go

 

 

8. MARIESTAD

 

That rainy day in june, we sat up in the tree house

I made you follow even though you were afraid of heights

We had our first kiss, and then one more

and it was your first, but I had done it twice before

 

There was a time when I knew you by heart

But we’ve been growing up we’ve been growing apart

A memory of the past back in Mariestad

Baby that’s what we are

 

’Cause time changed all that we knew

but I’ll remember you

 

You knew when I was sad, we shared our secrets from the start

I always beat your ass when we were playing Mario Kart

How were we supposed to know back then

the difference between a first love and a best friend

 

There was a time when I knew you by heart

But we’ve been growing up we’ve been growing apart

A memory of the past back in Mariestad

Baby that’s what we are

 

’Cause time changed all that we knew

but I’ll remember you

 

They say you're doing fine and that you will go far

but sometimes I can't help wondering if you are

thinking of the past back in Mariestad

Baby that's what we are

 

 

9. BATTLESHIP

 

Make it on your own,

no shortcuts, no advice

Your ship is on the way to sinking

I’m difficult to please

It’s hard to settle for less

Refusing the feeling that this is as good as it gets

 

Never share your secrets

Never let anyone in

Come on, I’ve learned from all my mistakes

 

I stay alone to ease my mind

I fight the anger that was left behind

I know I’ll fall, I know I’ll rise up every time

 

I make it on my own,

no shortcuts, no advice

I’ll win, no matter what you’re thinking

I could tell you all about the failures of mine

but looking back now would only be a waste of time

 

I stay alone to ease my mind

I fight the anger that was left behind

I know I’ll fall, I know I’ll rise up every time

I’ll rise up every time

 

I stay alone to ease my mind

I fight the anger that was left behind

I know I’ll fall, I know I’ll rise up every time

I’ll rise up every time

 

 

10. PIECE OF YOU

 

I know the way that we collided

never felt like being hit

More a growing sense of lightning

like being struck bit by bit

A picture, a story

that everyone’s been through

Still to me, to you,to both of us it’s new

something new to fall into

 

And all that I sing and all that I do

has a piece of you

 

So easy to elude

and stick to faint-hearted talk

Always ready to escape,

to leave, to flee, to walk

The sadness and sorrows

the failures I recall

Wonders and worries

the fear that you won’t fall

won’t fall in love at all

 

Still all that I sing and all that I do

has a piece of you

 

A wish and a will 

to share what I've been through

A feeling of hearts-ease

yet nothing tried and true

 

Still feels like home with you
