It ain’t easy being this kind of lover when you never call me

3. No You Girls
Oh, kiss me
Flick your cigarette, then kiss me
Kiss me where your eye won’t meet me
Meet me where your mind won’t kiss me

Flick your eyes and mine and then hit me
Hit me with your eyes so sweetly
Oh, you know you know you know that yes I love
I mean I’d love to get to know you

Do you never wonder?
No, no no no

You girls never know
Oh no, you girls’ll never know
No you girls never know
How you make a boy feel
You girls never know
Oh no, you girls’ll never know
No you girls never know
How you make a boy feel
How you make a boy

Oh, kiss me
Flick your cigarette, then kiss me
Kiss me where your eye won’t meet me
Meet me where your eye won’t lick me
Flick your mind and mine so briefly
Oh you know, you know you’re so sweetly
Oh you know, you know that I know that I love you
I mean I, I mean I need to love

Do you never wonder?
No, no no no

You girls never know
Oh no, you girls’ll never know
No you girls never know
How you make a boy feel
You girls never know
Oh no, you girls’ll never know
No you girls never know
How you make a boy feel
How you make a boy feel
How you make a boy

Sometimes I say stupid things
That I think
Well, I mean I
Sometimes I think the stupidest things
Because I never wonder
Oh how the girl feels
Oh how the girl feels

No you boys never care
Oh no you boys’ll never care
No you boys never care
How the girl feels
No you boys never care
You dirty boys’ll never care
No you boys never care
How the girl feels

Oh how the girl feels
Oh how the girl feels

4. Send Him Away
I can’t seem to feel the envy I should feel
Or maybe
I don’t need the sour side of love
Of love

No, I don’t care his breath is in your hair
Well, I don’t care his skin is still between
Still on fold of your sheets
Send him away

I don’t mean to claim or own you
Or maybe I would like to
But I need whatever side of love
Is there

No, I don’t care his breath is in your hair
Well, I don’t care his skin is still between
Still on fold of your sheets
Send him away

Oh, can’t you let me stay tonight?
Oh, can’t you let me stay tonight?
Oh, can’t you let me stay tonight?
Can’t you let me stay tonight?

5. Twilight Omens
I wrote your name upon the back of my hands
Slept upon it and I woke up with it
Backwards on my face
Reading forwards to my mirror
To my heart

Twilight omens in my life
Then I hear your name
Hear the way you sing your name, baby
Should I give you a call
And I say:
Baby, you still feel the same.

I typed your number into my calculator
Where it’s spelled as your word
When you turn it upside down
You can turn my dirty world
The bright way round

Twilight omens in my life
Then I hear your name
Hear the way you sing your name
Should give you a call
And I say:
Oh, maybe I still feel the same.
Twilight omens in my life
Keep hearing your name
Keep hearing your name
Keep hearing your name
Keep hearing you sing your name

6. Bite Hard
You don’t know,
I sing these songs,
About you,
You don’t know the the Pseudonyms,
I assume
You don’t know the the Pseudonyms,
I assume,
For you.

Are you happy now?
That the Gods are dying.
Or do you dream of
Heston with an omniscient beard
You should be happier now,
with no one to pray to.
Or would I love to break your knees from begging and praying?

Bite Hard.
Well its a broken smile,
Breaking their hearts and breaking their minds.
Bite Hard.
A survival guide,
Edges and lines and we ride together,
Bite Hard.

May be lonelier now but I’m happy oh no honest.
Ain’t only alone but what would we talk about anyway,
I’d never resort to kissing your photo,
Honest,
I just had to see,
How the chemicals taste their honey.

Bite Hard.
well its a broken smile,
Breaking their hearts and breaking their minds.
Bite Hard.
A survival guide,
Edges and lines and we ride together,
Bite Hard.

We ride together,
We ride together,
We die together.

Bite hard.
ah
Bite hard.
ah
Bite hard.
woaaaaaaah

Well I never,
Well I never
Well I never know,
Well I never,
I just had to,
I just had to taste their honey.

Bite Hard.
well its a broken smile,
Breaking their hearts and breaking their minds.
Bite Hard.
A survival guide,
Edges and lines and we ride together,
We ride together,
We die together.

7. What She Came For
I got a question for ya.
I got a question for ya.
Where’d you get your name from?
Where’d you get your name from?

I got a question for ya,
Where do you see yourself in five minutes time?

Ah with a laugh like that, or a look like that.
You make us all feel gauche, like it’s a smutty joke,
But with a laugh like that, or a move like that.
You make us all just go:
La la la la

Whoa, whoa, look out,
You’re what she came for
Know what she came for.
No question, no doubt.
Whoa, whoa, look out,
You’re what she came for
She knows what she came for.
No question, no doubt.
Whoa, whoa oh oh

Know what came for oh oh.

I got a question for ya, another question for ya
Ah do you feel the—ah do you feel the pressure?

Why you’re wearing what you’re wearing?
Where will your life be gone in five minutes time?

So say something stupid, you know that you love to.

Whoa, whoa, look out,
You’re what she came for
Know what she came for.
No question, no doubt.
Whoa, whoa, look out,
You’re what she came for
She knows what she came for.
No question, no doubt.
Whoa, whoa oh oh

You’re what she came for [6x]

8. Live Alone
I want to live alone
Because the greatest love
Is always ruined by the bickering
The argument of living
So I want to live alone
I could be happy on my own

Live the rest of my life
With the vaguest of feeling

Wherever you are
Whoever is there
You know that I’ll be here
Wishing I could be there

So I’m going to live alone
I’m not saying that out love is the greatest
But I’m in love with you
Want to stay in love with you
So I’m going to live alone
Yeah I’ll be happy on my own

Live the rest of my life
With the vaguest of feeling

Wherever you are
Whoever is there
You know that I’ll be here
Wishing I could be there

In NYC when
I get in a taxi
I say “man” to the driver so
He’ll think
“Man!
I can imagine
Having a drink with that guy”
“He’s alright”

Wherever you are
Whoever is there
You know that I’ll be here
Wishing I could be there

9. Can't Stop Feeling
Soul starts spinning again
I can’t stop feeling
No, I won’t stop feeling
And the fun’s not fun anymore
I can’t stop feeling
No, I won’t stop feeling

And you leave me here on my own
Yeah you leave me here on the floor
You can’t feel it
And you can’t feel it
You can’t feel it
And you can’t feel anymore

Dooo-doo-doo, doo-doo-do-doo…

Soul boy, down and alone
And his soul is broken again
But you can’t stop moving
No you won’t stop moving along
Aaaaah…

Soul starts spinning again
I can’t stop feeling
No, I don’t stop feeling
And the word’s not ‘us’ anymore
I can’t stop feeling
No, I won’t stop feeling

And you leave me dancing alone
Yeah you leave me to die on the floor
You can’t feel it
No you can’t feel it
You can’t feel it
And you can’t feel anymore
Feel anymore, feel anymore
Feel anymore

Doo-doo-doo doo-doo-do-doo…

Soul boy, down and alone
And his soul is broken again
But you can’t stop moving
No you won’t stop moving along
Aaaaaah…

Can’t stop moving, no I can’t stop feeling
Can’t stop feeling, no I can’t stop feeling
An you can’t feel it, and you can’t feel it
You can’t feel it and you can’t feel anymore

Soul boy, down and alone
And his soul is broken again

10. Lucid Dreams
Sweep slides on my stereo
Short wave ride my rodeo
Became from that of Savalon
But I’m flyin’ to Istanbul
Oh, so why don’t you meet me there?

There is no nation of you, there is no nation of me
Our only nation lives in lucid dreams
Lucid dreams, I’m livin’ in lucid dreams
I’m livin’ on shortwave streams tonight

Well, I’ll dial Alexandria
If you dial into Ithaca
South Fisher, German bite
I skate on the world tonight
Oh, so why don’t you come along?

There is no nation of you, there is no nation of me
Our only nation lives in lucid dreams
Lucid dreams, I’m livin’ in lucid dreams
I’m livin’ on shortwave streams tonight

I’m gonna give my aimless love
My angry heart, my desire
I woke with wings from lucid dreams
I knew the reason I felt hollow
Was it I may never know
If there is some great truth or not

There is no nation of you, there is no nation of me
Our only nation lives in lucid dreams
Lucid dreams, I’m livin’ in lucid dreams
I’m livin’ on shortwave streams tonight

Lucid dreams, I’m livin’ on lucid dreams
Now there is just plain mystery

11. Dream Again
Don’t be afraid if you hear voices
Or feel the sweet air
Spoken upon you
Sometimes the sound
Of a thousand
Whispering words
Of Hope will reassure
Show me the future
Will see u s join together
If the oceans split
Or the mountains sigh
Then I
Will keep on dreaming
I live to dream again

Don’t be afraid if you’re descending
The deepest despairs
Without a handrail to guide you
Sometimes the sound
Of a thousand
Whispering words
Can confuse
But when you’re sleeping
They shift and slide together
Bring meaning
To the canyon’s cry
So I
I keep on dreaming
I live to dream again

Sometimes the sound
Of a thousand
Whispers are where
You live a little fear
But feel the pressure

I feel us dream together
I feel no fear
I feel no fire
Oh I
I keep on dreaming
I live to dream again

12. Katherine Kiss Me
Katherine, kiss me
Slip your little lips
Will split me
Split me away
Your eye won’t hit me
Yes, I love you, I mean it
I’d love to get to know you

Sometimes I say the stupid things I think
I mean I
Sometimes I think the stupidest things
Mmmmmm
And do you ever wonder
How the boy feels

Katherine, kiss me
Flick your cigarette, then kiss me
Flick your eyes at mine so briefly
Your leather jacket lies
In sticky pools of Cider Blackberry
You glance and ricochet
From every alpha male behind me
Eyes
Like marbles on a washing machine

Mmmmm
I wonder
How the boy feels

Katherine , kiss me
In the alleyway
By ….
Jacket in the sodium light
Yes, I love you, I mean I
Need to love

And though your opened eyes stay bored
Upon the overflowing pipes above me
Tonight
I don’t mind
Because I never wonder
How the girl feels
