Track Name: If You Want To
you live alone, you always will
because you've looked out of your window and you've had your fill
back on the street, where you grew up
time hasn't changed a world that couldn't ever have enough
i saw you there, tried to catch your eye
you said "i'm in a hurry i'll catch you some other time"
yeah, you were nice, but not to me
well there's a side of some people that i'll never see

you could do anything darling
if you want to
so, why you wanna be alone

you took some time to figure things out
but i still can't find my way i could use some help
back in the town, that made me myself
a mirror that now's always showing someone else
saw you again, over coffee
you said i live alone, but i could use some company

but if it was me i'd i wouldn't make it that long
not long

you could do better darling
if you want to
i know i can't make you
you don't have to
but it still has me wonderin'
like they all do
why you wanna be alone

you live alone, you always have
just a look outside your window is enough to drive you mad
i look at you, and i see pain
and when you're looking right back at me i start to feel the same
Track Name: What Are You Waiting For
just take the easy way 'cause i don't have too long
it's the only way that i could get what i wanted
or take another day and leave me right at home
'cause i only wanted it until i saw it

i think she's talking again
i think she's saying something

what are you waiting for?
there's nothing to lose
what do you take me for?

you could've dropped me a line
i would've taken the time

still listen closely to the things that never were
hope to learn some lesson in your worried hiding
a fading image of someone as bright as her
just seems to keep you down and gone forever quiet

i think she's talking again
i think she's saying something

just take the easy way another day is through
stuck around but i couldn't see what i wanted

i think she's talking again
i think she's saying something
another message ignored
you think she'll stick around for?

what are you waiting for?
there's nothing to lose
what do you take me for?

don't wait around
don't wait around
don't wait around for too long

what are you waiting for?
there's nothing to lose
what do you take me for?
Track Name: Georgette
georgette unwind with me
you're always on your feet
if we could talk
and laugh quietly
georgette come sit with me

when i come through the door
i always see you smilin'
you ask me what
what i want
gerogette where do i begin

i've spent a lonely life
wondering when it's gonna end
but you could be
my only friend
georgette please let me in

i know you're older now
than you really wanna be
but it's just time
and i got plenty
georgette grow old with me
Track Name: Asleep Again
too busy falling backwards
to see the light around her
sleep softly in the shadow
(i'm sleeping in the shadow
i'm sleeping in the shadow)

now curse the operator
whose line has complicated
a simple quiet hello
(i should've just said hello
i should've just said hello)

you know that i'll be
sleeping on the floor
that's where you'll find me
you know that i'll be
coming back for more
so what are you doing

well, i spent all night in a two step dance
slow to move, never took the chance
i'll turn around now before you are gone


too busy undertaking
the only plan worth making
sleep softly here tomorrow
(i'll sleep again tomorrow
i'll sleep again tomorrow)

you know that i'll be
sleeping on the floor
that's where you'll find me
you know that i'll be
coming back for more
so what are you doing

well, i spent all night in a two step dance
slow to move, never took the chance
i'll turn around now before you are gone
Track Name: You Won't See Me Anymore
my dear, you know
our love could never die slow
one day you won't see me anymore

my dear, you'll learn
some feelings never return
and one day you won't see me anymore

some days you'll find me sinking like a stone
is it better to be unhappy together
than be unhappy alone

my dear, you'll find
some lovers to be so blind
one day you won't see me anymore

i want the truth some day
or at least goodbye
i'm not the only one with somethin' to say
you'll find

my dear, understand
that i still wanna be your man
but one day, you wouldn't see me anymore
you won't see me anymore
