Superstition 03:27
I took my cash cow to the slaughterhouse What was I thinking, what was I thinking If falling leaves take time to die Oh give me time They’re murky shadows that you dip your toes in Please don’t lie to me, oh don’t lie to me This barstool prophet’s not a broken man I’m a pilgrim’s son Superstition New religion new religion Show me mercy Take me home My windfall’s up but it wont float down I burnt the ladder, burnt the ladder My fortune cookie said I’d be OK What do cookie’s know You know how much I believed in fate Let me keep it, let me keep it There’ll come a time when the heart won’t ache Throw our hands up high Superstition New religion new religion Show me mercy Take me home

your memories were they meant for me as I lie beneath these cold cold sheets well that tender kiss that tasted of cloves and cigs did it mean too much or not enough come on lie down and feel me heart come on lie down Please this is not me And please this is not you You said you’d love me til the day, the day I died Right now I’m dying inside I’m such a fool A fool for you Before you reach to slash the strings we both attached Can I redraw the maps to find a line between us Before it’s too late There’s too much at stake Let’s rewind the tape and put it all before us come on lie down and feel me heart come on lie down Please this is not me And please this is not you You said you’d love me til the day, the day I died Right now I’m dying inside I’m such a fool A fool for you Oh do you remember when Oh do you remember when Way back way back way back when Way back before we were lovers we were friends Please this is not me And please this is not you You said you’d love me til the day, the day I died Right now I’m dying inside I’m such a fool A fool for you

Lights 02:40
These streets they hold no memories Why don’t we make some Jump this moving train And see what may come I’ll lie awake for you with the lights on I’ll lie awake for you with the lights on I’m stuck in Neukoln with my fingers burning My feet are itchy But my head’s stopped turning I’ll lie awake for you with the lights on I’ll lie awake for you with the lights on Where there’s mystery There’s possibility That all we seek Is you and me I’ve a rising feeling I should not be here The beat is leading where My heart won’t be clear I’ll lie awake for you with the lights on I’ll lie awake for you with the lights on Where there’s mystery There’s possibility That all we seek Is you Where there’s mystery There’s possibility That all we seek Is you and me Where there’s mystery There’s possibility That all we seek Is you Where there’s mystery There’s possibility That all we seek Is you and me

With my nose pressed up against the window pane While the city’s diamond rain was dancing Exalted as the silence washed away This here is where my prayers get answered I’ve waited all my life for something like this I’ve waited all my life for something like this o-o-o something like this o-o-o something like this I felt home I fell right in with the least of us A clean canvas to paint our story With tears of sorrow tears of laughter and boundless joy This here is life in all its glory I’ve waited all my life for something like this I’ve waited all my life for something like this o-o-o something like this o-o-o there’s a feeling I still believe in when it’s over know that this is what we came here for this is what we came here for like cold broken glass in the morning sun like a fire upon the ocean the water dragged me down you pulled me free this here is where I pledge devotion I’ve waited all my life for something like this I’ve waited all my life for something like this o-o-o something like this o-o-o something like this o-o-o something like this

Boxhagener blue eyed dream Where have you been? Indifferent pale and thin I fell for you like amphetamine Lonely dancer Oh oh lonely dancer Pick up the pieces pick up the pieces of my heart I held onto the banister Afraid that I’d embarrass her from the pages of a book I fell for her line and hook Lonely dancer Oh oh lonely dancer Pick up the pieces pick up the pieces of my heart Amidst the stench of stale smoke and piss We leaned our necks out for a kiss The whole world was at my feet I fell for you like amphetamine Lonely dancer Oh oh lonely dancer Pick up the pieces pick up the pieces of my heart Maybe tonight we’ll get closer to the secret Maybe tonight we’ll get closer to the secret Maybe tonight we’ll get closer to the secret Maybe tonight we’ll get close Lonely dancer Oh oh lonely dancer Pick up the pieces pick up the pieces of my heart

Sorry 02:52
Like a silver screen kiss under a morning moon Like an innocent lift that leaves us both confused Keep the cameras keep the cameras rolling Like Christmas tree lights still hung in early june We lose the surprise Is love now gratitude? I’m comfy, are you comfy too? I’m the bearded lady I’m the elephant man I want to stay at home but I don’t believe I can I don’t want to have to say I’m sorry It’s better to have lost than never loved I don’t want to have to say I’m sorry But I’ll adjust our room it is filled with lonely elephants we swallow the pills to hide our skeletons they’re rattling. Are yours rattling too? I’m the bearded lady I’m the elephant man I want to stay at home but I don’t believe I can I don’t want to have to say I’m sorry It’s better to have lost than never loved I don’t want to have to say I’m sorry But I’ll adjust

standing in the dark I feel your arms circle round me A hot electric charge Drop the guard come in drown me You’ve got to let it all out to let it all in save us from ourselves again Tonight I know I’ll be left in no doubt Reckless and slow redemption Lead me Reckless and slow redemption Lead me The sunlight hits your clothes that all lay all around you My angel from the north I’ve been caught Can I get to know you You’ve got to let it all out to let it all in save us from ourselves again Tonight I know I’ll be left in no doubt Reckless and slow redemption Lead me Reckless and slow redemption Lead me

Stars 03:33
the lights inside shone bright outside where the stars gazed down where the stars gazed down warm and safe a loving place til the stars fall down til the stars fall down don’t sing to me of Pyrrhic victories I need your smile to close my eyes to Eyes turned blind heads held too high But the stars gaze down Yeah the stars gaze down don’t sing to me of Pyrrhic victories I need your smile to close my eyes to Watch the clocks the guilt don’t stop But the stars still shine Yeah the stars still shine don’t sing to me of Pyrrhic victories I need your smile to close my eyes to

the twilight’s beauty took away my breath you were lying in your cotton dress something heavy lay upon my chest let’s go out and lose the night to the corner where I first saw you strumming gently to my favourite tune dancing underneath a silver moon let’s go out and lose the night you know what’s right lets not fight lets do this the time is high the time is right lets lose it, oh lose it you meant everything to me (x4) the sunsets beauty brings back memories the perfume of what was our willow tree oh come on out and breath it in with me let’s go out and lose the night you know what’s right lets not fight lets do this the time is high the time is right lets lose it, oh lose it you meant everything to me (x4)
