Track Name: New Springfield
If I could see, maybe I'd believe
And if I could see, maybe I'd believe
That someone was looking down on me
And looking after me

I've never cried like I did that night
I've never cried like I did that night
It's not what I do
No I won't blink, if it's not real

How can you offer me your prayers?
No one up there seems to care
I lose one, I lose two, I lose three

No one but you will know your pain
They just think you're weird; they just think you've changed
I lose one, I lose two, I lose three

How can you speak when you're out of your mind?
How can you speak when you're out of your mind?
All seems in time, rhythm and rhyme
When you don't feel small

Baby please don't come and save me again
Baby please don't come and save me again

How can you offer me your prayers?
No one up there seems to care
I lose one, I lose two, I lose three

No one but you will know your pain
They just think you're weird; they just think you've changed
I lose one, I lose two, I lose three

How can you fall on passing tears
I have to live with this for years
I lose one, I lose two, I lose three
Track Name: Strangers
The day it stops, you'll know I'm not your lover anymore
I'll crack a smile, with different eyes than I did for you before

Change my name and meet me at the door
Where I won't recognise me anymore
If it's what you want then I will go
And cease to be the person that you know

Centuries since you have been carried through my door
But here I'll stay where I was made, so far from where you are

In Amsterdam, Dad ain't dead
So I'm going back to where I'm myself

Change my name and meet me at the door
Where I won't recognise me anymore
If it's what you want then I will go
And cease to be the person that you know

I don't want some stranger in my arms
So I stopped searching since you came along
I thought you said that we would retire
But now I face a self that must expire
Track Name: Me & My
Me and my, me and my head
Just want a break, and I just want a change from it all

I dipped a little the further you went
Don't you judge this; should have know me as a kid

But I learned a little the further you went
All I love's the same as you; must be something that I'm doing wrong

A better me could pick you up
A better me was all you'd want and more
A better me could pick you up
For so long

The winner gets closest to door
You're getting nervous; don't let them notice

The loser sits closest to the door
I'm sorry Karen; I need a line for you now

A better me could pick you up
A better me was all you'd want and more
A better me could pick you up
For so long

We can lock this door
We can hide here on the floor
And they won't, no they won't,
Find us no more

We can hide, we can hide, hide on the floor
No they won't, no they won't, find us no more
No they won't, no they won't, find us no more
Track Name: Plans
I've got something to say
I've probably left it too late
I hope that you understand

Lately I've been losing my faith
In things you said we would do,
In who I'd be without you

I find it hard to tear me away
We've been comfy so long
On the couch in your arms

But I've got a lot on my plate
You've got to see it this way
I need a second to chew

And I don't know where I stand

I don't know who I am in all of these plans

It's such a long way to come: from intimate and alone
From 'like the back of my hand' to 'lovers once long ago'
I wish I wanted to stay and nothing we couldn't do
I never thought that I'd lose, never thought I'd lose you

I was taken aback
I guess that I knew
I felt you drifting away

Still I've been doing just fine
I'm slowly coming out of my cage

You must be touching his chest
How haunting
I can't believe that he isn't me

Oh, where on Earth do I go?
I've waited here so long
I dunno who I will be

And I don't know where I stand
I don't know who I am outside all of these plans

It's such a long way to come: from intimate and alone
From 'like the back of my hand' to 'lovers once long ago'
I wish you wanted to stay and nothing we couldn't do
I never thought that I'd lose, never thought I'd lose you



It's such a long way to come: from intimate and alone
From 'like the back of my hand' to 'lovers once long ago'
I wish you wanted to stay and nothing we couldn't do
I never thought that I'd lose, never thought I'd lose you
