Lyrics

On an August night when we were 17

You stood and cried, I had to set you free
I had my life and what I wanted to be
Felt I was right, I know you disagreed with me

It just rains all the time
The winter's long, the summer's not so fine
I'm still dreaming
We still got time
Love is on our side!

On a stormy night when we were 29
Spent half my life still wishing you were mine
Girl I still loved you when I passed on by
Your big blue house with your little girl inside

It just rains all the time
The winter's long, the summer's not so fine
I'm still dreaming
We still got time
Love is on our side!

Don't you think that you could be with me?
Do you remember how it used to be?
Do you still think I could come to your blue house and take you out?
Or did those tears in your eyes that final night end our chances?

It just rains all the time
The winter's long, the summer's not so fine
I'm still dreaming
We still got time

On an August night when we were 17
You stood and cried, I had to set you free

Lyrics

We fought our own nature

Enough of that
When you war with nature
She'll fight back
I used to pray to a false god above for a safe, simple path
When I had seen it
I couldn't take it
So I came back

At the start I don't know what there was
I couldn't care if you think you do
In the end we will only be judged
By the ones we gave ourselves to
So should I stay, should I go anywhere
What will always be there
Is the love I created with you

We fought our own nature
She fought back
We search our lives for that creature
That we lack
If you find just a spark of true love, keep it safe from attack
When you see it
And then you taste it
You don't go back

At the start I don't know what there was
I couldn't care if you think you do
In the end we will only be judged
By the ones we gave ourselves to
So should I stay, should I go anywhere
What will always be there
Is the love I created with you

Lyrics

Oh girl, what your boyfriend did

Can't be that bad
So don't play the fool

I know it's bad, what your girlfriend said
I know she made you mad
But it's cool

Life is hard, life is beautiful
Because I'm here with you
Life is hard, life is beautiful
When I'm here with you
Life is beatituf!

Oh girl, you can forget those plans
Because you don't need them
You break the rules

In fact, you could forgive your dad
He's just like that
But it's cool

Life is hard, life is beautiful
Because I'm here with you
Life is hard, life is beautiful
When I'm here with you
Life is beautiful!

Abscondo

Lyrics

All those years
All the same
All those fears
All in vain

On a sailboat called victory in a land-locked sea
Like a glossy image in a dull magazine
On a broken record sounds will just repeat
I've longed for something just beyond where anyone can see in a landlocked sea

I've seen more than anything I thought I'd see
I've been to all the places that I'd want to be
I guess each moment is just fading into memory
And yet each moment is the only that ever means anything to me

On a sailboat called Victory in a land-locked sea
I've longed for something just beyond where anyone can see in a landlocked sea

I've seen more than anything I thought I'd see
I've been to all the places that I'd want to be
I guess each moment is just fading into memory
And yet each moment is the only that ever means anything to me

All those years
All the same
All those fears
All in vain

Lost

Lyrics

Picture me sitting on the softest edge

On my unmade bed looking serious
Its not as if there should be something said
Not like anyone who's out there would hear us

When you're all dressed, when you walk these streets
Do you feel like the stranger you would want to meet like me?

Picture me riding on a cross-town train
By a man who breathes like he's furious
When I opened that can it sprayed
It's mist on nearly everything near us

I'm not impressed, the way you answer the phone
The way you talk to someone just beyond your control  
I should have guessed, I should have sat all alone
Is anyone still looking for a friend at all

Sometimes I feel lost in this town
Sometimes I feel lost in this town
Sometimes I feel lost...

When you're all dressed, when you walk these streets
Do you feel like the stranger you would want to meet?
So unimpressed while you stand there alone
While everyone is looking, they don't see you at all

When you're all dressed, when you walk these streets

Do you feel like there's someone who's there

When you're all dressed, ,when you walk these streets

Does it feel like you're going nowhere?

Abscondo

Lyrics

I think there’s nothing much to say
About a system that’s seen its day
Too much has gone too wrong to keep pretending that it'll be ok

I think that we all feel the same
We’re tired of their games
We know, cause we all feel the pain
To feel and act is not the same

We both know that the system doesn't work
That it only gets worse
It only just hurts
So let your mind go free

They don’t care about our needs
They keep sowing the same seeds
We won’t get up in the morning just pretending, at least its not for me

We both know that the system doesn't work
That it only gets worse
It only just hurts
One day we'll stand in shame
Soaking the filthy rain
Beside the rising sea
Beneath the strongest tree
So let your mind go free

To fight this system is a waste
So let’s take to cyberspace
We’ll live within and outside their institutions, but in our own place

We both know that the system doesn't work
That it only gets worse
It only just hurts
One day we'll stand in shame
Soaking the filthy rain
Beside the rising sea
Beneath the strongest tree
So let your mind go free
