Track Name: Harvest
Walking away in the simplest way and I'm already laughing
In the springtime of love, springtime of love

Talking away just the words that I say and I'm already growing
In the harvest of time, harvest of time

I don't talk and baby I don't sing but I'm in love
And if it's all in the way that I shed my soul I'll tear it off
And if we die tonight, well
Bring those stupid love songs to me

Breaking away while removing my shame and I'm already shedding all the
Scales from my eyes, scales from my eyes

Elegant twist from the sun to my lips and the harvester's calling me
Back to his field, back to his field
Boogie

I don't talk and baby I don't sing but I'm in love
And if it's all in the way that I shed my soul I'll tear it off
And if we die tonight, well
Bring those stupid love songs to me
Track Name: I Won't Be Your Sun
Is it so bad you have to close your eyes to it?
Truth be told the cosmos don't shine for you like they do for me
I won't be your sun

Summertime, I wanna hear you call
Summertime, I wanna hear you call

Into the night, you never find a home in the dusk of your life
Yet I still find, God don't shine for you like He does for me
I won't be your sun

Summertime, I wanna hear you call
Summertime, I wanna hear you call
Track Name: Peggy Sue
Don't rain on my parade, Peggy Sue
Don't rain on my parade, Peggy Sue

Peggy says to get a life, think I'll end this strife
Peggy says to get a job, don't think I'll let this drop

Don't rain on my parade, Peggy Sue
Don't rain on my parade, Peggy Sue

Peggy says to get a life (get a life), think I'll end this strife
Peggy says to get a job (get a job), don't think I'll let this drop
Track Name: Lavender Ladies
Straight laced lavender ladies
Cross-eyed beautiful babies are
Not for me (what you lookin' at?)

Look sharp, heaven is waiting
There's something, nothing worth saving
Not for me (what you lookin' at?)

So he belongs to you

Look up, I am still waving
I notice you are still waving, but
Not for me (what you lookin' at?)

Come here, wait by the window with
Midnight wrapped in my shadow
Not for me (what you lookin' at?)

So he belongs to you
Track Name: Young Things
If I was a (if I was a) young thing like you (young thing like you)
Young things are a thing of the past
Young things are a thing that'll pass

Little sister (little sister), selfless to death (selfless to death)
Have you heard my prayer in the night?
Have you heard my prayer in the night?
Ok!

Hey! Hey!

Therese of Lisieux

Little flower (little flower) of the child (of the child)
Shower me with roses unknown
Shower me with roses unknown

You can't have it (you can't have it), all the roses (all the roses)
Spring will lose its loveliness
Spring will lose its loveliness
Ok!

Hey! Hey!

Therese of Lisieux
Track Name: Poor Eliza
You got me good 'cause I want it bad
I lost my love in a sneak attack
Tell me where and the time of day
I'll tell you what you can go away

You got me, you got me, you got me?
You got me, I got you, you got me?
You got me, you got me, you got me, yeah

Take my hands and just drop those pills
I can't stand up and my stomach's ill
Please sit down, we can talk this out
You talk too much I just want it now

You got me, you got me, you got me?
You got me, I got you, you got me?
You got me, you got me, you got me, yeah

Remember how it used to be?
Full of pain and of misery
You're talkin circles, you're talkin big
You talk too much, won't you let me be?

You got me, you got me, you got me?
You got me, I got you, you got me?
You got me, you got me, you got me, yeah

Is life so bad you just can't regret?
What a great idea how could I forget?
Eliza
Eliza, put the gun down

You got me, you got me, you got me?
You got me, you got me, try and stop me
You got me, you got me, you got me, yeah
Track Name: Tennis
Tell me why you love me so
Back and forth like a tennis court
Do you see my as a way out
Another key for your keychain (change)

And if we die, which we must
Does our hair fall out or ah we all grow cold
Will it hurt, please say no
'Cause there's only so much pain I can endure
And if we must, say we tried
More than the peach against the fruit flies

Illumination (ill loom in nation) where your heart at (wear your heart out)
Jet lag junkies on the lam
Always free but never forming (for me)
I lost my head and lost my God

And if we die, which we must
Does our hair fall out or ah we all grow cold
Will it hurt, please say no
'Cause there's only so much pain I can endure
And if we must, say we tried
More than the peach against the fruit flies
Track Name: Eugenia
When the witchcraft is over
Will you take off your armor and come be with me?

'Cause I'm in the meadow waiting for you
On March 26th
Track Name: Honeycomb
Honey cast your comb into the ravine
Benevolent tablets melt my sadness all away

Hamlet days must end, Sally days begin
Back when baths meant Marat
I'm not thinking about that

Rest your halo here, Put flowers in your hair
More than the meadows could grow
Taller than the mountain snow

Sweet September sun, turn eternity
Let down your hair, let me climb
Through your garden window

I give myself to you

Blood tea in our veins, two connected brains
Look up at me, let me see
All the blossoms in your eyes

If I could go back to when you were young
I would tell you about the things that are gonna harm you

If I could go back to when you were young
I would save you from the things that are gonna hurt you

If I could go back to when we were young
I would marry that girl, yes, I'm in love with you
I'm in love
Love
Track Name: Holy Motors
Que pasa San Francisco Bay?
How are you doing in LA?
I thought I told you not to go

I can't stay in this town
I get up and I get down
I can't stay in this town
My holy motors start to growl

Un noche in Mexico, my love
Y Puerto Rico by the cove
I thought I told you not to go

I can't stay in this town
I get up and I get down
I can't stay in this town
My holy motors start to growl

Que Pasa San Francisco Bay
I'm moving always back to Spain
I thought I told you not to go

I can't stay in this town
I get up and I get down
I can't stay in this town
My holy motors start to growl
Track Name: Jump the Gun
Jump the gun, Don't jump the gun
Take a run, Don't take a run
Tried to be just what you want me
Tried to see but it's all inside me

I don't want it, I don't need it
I don't want it, I don't need it, You can have it

Jump the gun, Don't jump the gun
Take a run, Don't take a run
Tried to be just what you want me
Tried to see, I count for three of these

I don't want it, I don't need it
I don't want it, I don't need it, You can have it
Track Name: Talk from the East
The struggle begins when you wanna have peace
They're taking your money, the talk from the east
Who are they anyways? Who are they anyways?

You're giving me looks while you break my jawbone
Hey, we're your friends and what's yours is now ours
Who are you anyways? We're taking everything

I'm gonna let you go, gonna let you go
I'll be at your door

Trouble begins when you wanna have fun
You take all my money, you take all my guns
Who are you anyways? My greatest enemy

Robin Hood and his band of Merry Men
Cannot escape you, they can't make amends
Who are you anyways? Some kinda charity case

I'm gonna let you go, gonna let you go
I'll be at your door

Melodramatic
Constant bad habit
Barking through your veil at the full moon

I'm gonna let you go, gonna let you go
I'll be at your door
Track Name: Knockin' at Your Door
I've been knockin' at your door
(I've been knockin, yes, I've been knockin')
Yes, I've been knockin' at your door
Well, no one wants to see me again
but that's alright 'cause I've made a friend
In you and that's how I'd like to see it end

Now we got death at our door
(She'll be knockin, yes, she'll be knockin')
And we don't want to leave her bored
Well, everybody's running for their lives, but you and I
We're holding down our ties and knots 'cause we
Really know our place don't we?

I've been knockin' at your door
(I've been knockin, yes, I've been knockin')
Yes, I've been knockin' at your door
Well you took all of my money and you put it in a box
And you'll never give it back to me
'Cause you lost all of the locks

But I'm still knockin' at your door
(I've been knockin, yes, I've been knockin')
Yes, I've been knockin' at your door
Well, no one wants to see me again but that's alright 'cause I've made a friend, yeah that's alright 'cause I've made friend, yeah that's alright 'cause I've made friend
In you and that's how I'd like to see it end
