You didn't have to ask You know you're always welcome here It's good to hear your laugh It really makes a difference So tell me how you've been Would you like a cup of tea? Yeah I'm just the same Well you know how things can be And no I don't mind It's not like I was doing anything And you know I don't mind It's not like I was doing anything Or even remotely like it It's little that holds my interest That's another story And no I don't mind It's not like I was doing anything And you know I don't mind It's not like I was doing anything

You tell me that you know all the answers I tell you you're wrong It's driving me out of my head I want you to stay, but I can't seem to say it The words just won't come So I'm driving you home instead Could I walk straight up to you, and Could I be so tough To collect you as I leave this joint and Wrap my arms around you?
3.
When I lie awake I try not to think of you but if that doesn’t work I just resign myself to you Don’t want to feel like this ’cause thoughts of you unsettle me What I really want is for you to mean nothing to me It’s okay to dream but dreaming fades reality What I really want is for you to mean nothing to me
4.
I wonder if you're happy I wonder if you're high I wonder if you sigh a lot I wonder if you're blind enough for me I see your face in winter Winter makes me cry Running out of summer time Naked body lie Here we go Living out our life Driving to the sky In the summer Tried to be what we could but we couldn’t I’d like to call you maybe I’d like to see you smile I’d like to go on loving you I’d like to stay a while Here we go Living out our life Driving to the sky In the summer Tried to be what we could but we couldn’t

Some time soon The phone will ring The conversation will do something to compensate for this empty house This empty house Waiting time
6.
There may come a time when I've forgotten all the words to every song Except the ones about you that I wrote when we were young If I hide a lie, between two truths Doesn't mean that it's about you There may come a time when all my stars go out, one by one And when that day comes I hope you're standing here, by my side To see you smile from across the room

She was out walking on a quiet night in the city Where all the little girls look so pretty Where the carbon monoxide fumes had turned the sky yellow Where one man led the parade and a thousand people followed And he said Little girl come back to my room Where I can show you the stars and show you the moon Show you the night by the naked glow of a 60 watt electric light And if you show me your charms If you show me a vision Then I won’t have to talk to you Just look submissive and I won’t have to think about you Let me make your body shiver Let me take your charms and hang them from my rear-view mirror I can show you love is tragic Let me take you in my arms pretending that you’re made of plastic And he said Little girl come back to my room Let me put you in your place Let me spread your lipstick all over your face And if you show me your charms If you show me a vision Then I won’t have to talk to you Just look submissive and I won’t have to think about you And I won’t have to talk to you Turn on the television And I won’t have to think about you
8.
Disappointment comes when I fail to reach my dreams, disillusionment when I succeed Immobility numbs me Does it really matter when all that glitters is not gold Slipping through your fingers, red hot embers soon grow grey and cold
9.
In the light of day it becomes more clear that you don't want me here At night, At night you start to think that you're in love with me is it from the drink or insecurity What should I believe? When you hold me in your arms or hang up on me When I call you on the phone and you don't want to speak to me Each time, Each time I still want you each time I start to cry when you lie and say you'll stay then you say goodbye and we don't talk until the next time Each time I wake in the light of day it becomes more clear to me that you don't want me here In the light of day it becomes more clear that you don't want me here Each time, each time I start to cry when you lie and say you'll stay then you say goodbye and we don't talk and we don't smile until the next time.

I know the seasons change Makes me sad, but I won't tell I think I know your dreams Don't know you long, but know you well You're always on my mind You have love and I have time I've always guessed your heart Was not for keeps, but I don't mind When summer's over we are too You don't say, but I can tell We were walking in the dark The softest hands I've ever held Just sleep like this a while Arms around me feel secure You say you're coming back But hesitate to say you're sure I know the seasons change One with you was worth it all I can't tell you anything I know that you'll be gone by fall This summer's gone and you are too Sweetest voice I'll ever miss We were talking in the dark The softest lips I've ever kissed Leaves are turning so will you Golden arms I'll ever miss You don't say, but still I know The softest lips I'll never kiss again

We made a cross at the wire the Berlin Wall was never in doubt And to the top of the tower I looked away to the breaking storm The radio's working and transmitting through but I cant get over and out And all I hear is the static winding on and on and on And if we were to ever meet again would there be anything to say? It's hard to imagine that there was a time when we were both in love

Walking up the street I was thinking about it As I tend to do Walking up the lane there’s no doubt about it I was thinking of you I can't quite say, What is wrong but I want to tell you all about it, I’m embarrassed to say it But I guess its true; I don’t know what I want What I want you to do. The problem is, I want you to think and believe the same things as me... Why do I always act so dumb? I can’t really say what is wrong but I want to tell you all about it if I can In my dreaming We were in a house You were crying I was cooking up some food It’s the way that things are going to be from now on (I was in a house It’s the way things will be ) Walking up the street I was thinking about it in a vague sort of way Walking up the lane there’s no doubt about it I was thinking of you I hadn’t seen you in well over three weeks It seems longer than that I dreamed last night we were in a house Somewhere by the sea I’m embarrassed to say it But I guess its true; I don’t know what I want you to do. Walking up the street I was thinking about it in my vague sort of way Walking up the lane there’s no doubt about it I know you’re coming today

about

Do you ever wonder what it was really like? What was your favourite childhood memory? And what did you want to be when you grew up?

I brought something for you. Something homespun and charming, sweet and starry-eyed. Something which holds a certain cuteness and even a certain brashness between its vulnerability and fright. It reminds me of the girl with the strawberry hair: puppyish but not puppy-eyed, effervescent yet sincere; trying and falling as the days go by.

Don't open it yet. There's beauty in its brevity but time goes too quickly. Assurance in dreams but inconstancy in all else, our memories of Marineville all but forgotten. We can run away with it, be alone with it and keep its wistfulness for ourselves.

Summerdays spent on 53rd and 3rd; popkisses shared under blue suburban skies. Fleeting autumnal nights when we were left in the rain. I think It's unashamedly lovelorn and I'm so bookish and shy.

I thought you'd like it.
