Track Name: Aside
this here is the perfect setting
for a justified embrace
and this goodbye's a good excuse
for me to kiss your face
it’s in scenes like these I wonder
what it would be like
all alone with you
on a drunken night

yes, I know it’s wrong
so I won't say
my tongue now is tied
and you know I won't stand
in your way
so I'll step aside

there’s nowhere in the world now
I'd rather want to be
then in your arms
little humble, crumble me
but I am scared of what might happen
cause nothing ever should
yes, I know - I agree

friends is good
friends is good

and I know it’s wrong
so I won't say
my tongue now is tied
and you know I won't stand
in your way
so I'll step aside

I’ll step aside

if we could only choose the ones we love
Track Name: Jamie, Why Are You So Sad?
Jamie, why are you so sad?
you say you don't feel anything
only every now and then
but it stops there, in your skin

Jamie, why are you so sad?
you just don't seem the crying kind
after playing with yourself -
you don't mind drawing those blinds

Jamie, why are you so sad?

is it really all that bad?
is it really all that bad?
Jamie, won't you look at me
and tell me, why you are so sad?

Jamie, why are you so sad?
how come you won't let him in?
him and everybody else
did you spread yourself too thin?

is it really all that bad?
is it really all that bad?
Jamie, won't you look at me
and tell me, why you are so sad?

Jamie, why are you so sad?
you say you don't feel anything
but you've been crying
and that's something to begin with

now ain't that something to begin with?
Track Name: So You Found Yourself A Lover
So You Found Yourself A Lover

so you found yourself a lover
so you found yourself a friend
so you found your way to comfort back again

I sure love those moments with someone new
I do miss those moments alone with you

tell me

does he make you breakfast
does he make you laugh
does he make you feel good
like I do and have

I’m sure there’s a fish there for me at sea
or some other spinster just like me

tell me something good will happen
someone good will make me laugh
tell me he or she won’t leave me
like they always have

so you found yourself a lover
so you found yourself a friend
so you found out he’s a keeper
so you go hold him then
