SPARKS maybe you’re bound by a strict code of nouns that I can’t crack or you’re composed of some magnetic prose that I can’t understand just yet what if it’s true what they say about you maybe I couldn’t care less maybe my soul is so desperate and dry that I can’t see through your evilness some crazy mathemagician figured out your formulae you’re just habitually dating your fella so you can’t ignore the sparks maybe you’re right you’ve got enough in your life and I’m too selfish to share my days but what if you’re wrong and you’re careening on downhill …no you can’t ignore the sparks it’s just a seasonal thing unlike you my perennial darling …no you can’t ignore the sparks you can’t ignore the sparks

SIX O TWO Why do you falter now love? Now the fight you’ve won Where have all your embers gone Have I done something wrong? Where can I find you, your fire has run You stole me from a dreamer And washed me down in you It’s true you hid my canvas And I felt happy too You tore me up in an afternoon, and left on the six-o-two Why do you falter now love? Now I’ve cornered you Who lies on your back seat Where I met you Where and who will you go to, I know your fire’s run You tore me up in an afternoon, and left on the six-o-two Why do you falter now love? Now the fight you’ve won

KNOW YOU HATE ME I know you hate me but I don’t mind ‘cause I stole your money, yeah, I robbed you blind it’s kind of funny that I did it to you the girl who robbed my love and stabbed me too you say I’m lost without you I’m boring without you I’ll fall without you I got a new love breaking me in Helps me forget about the way I’ve been I got a new love breaking me in Helps me forget about the way I’ve been I left, and drifted away I turned from your muppet brigade I know you hate me, but I don’t care You’re still shooting but my heart isn’t there (no more) No I’m not lost without you I’m not bored without you I won’t fall without you I got a new love breaking me in Helps me forget about the way I’ve been I got a new love breaking me in Helps me forget about the way I’ve been When I finally think the world is mine I see another girl who makes me cry I never know what you see in me One day my sense will get the better of me For all my innocence and renegade desires I got a new love, I got a new love, I got a new love

LIKE A STONE I vie for your attention But it’s just so hard to keep We’ve got this déjà-vu thing That superstition reaps I don’t believe your stories I can’t believe your truths But your sweetly infectious It’s hard to stay aloof I don’t ever remember a time or a place Where we could talk Not that I’d say much But still I yearn for it, burn for it, burn for it I am in a dark and lonely place I am static at the lights Scrambling through a pocket map But you’re a district out of sight I vie for your attention But it’s just so hard to keep We’ve got this déjà-vu thing That superstition reaps Lovers on the corner In the throes of some goodbyes While I hear the bells of Saint Anne’s I know what it means but I can’t reply And it’s maybe just as well Because it keeps me on my own No no you are not alone You carry him around you like a stone Like a stone

about
