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.

Track Name: The Cat's Miaow - Not Like I Was Doing Anything
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
Track Name: The Particles - Driving Me
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?
Track Name: The Ampersands - Affected
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
Track Name: Pearly Gatecrashers - In The Summer
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
Track Name: Ya Ya Choral - Waiting Time
Some time soon
The phone will ring
The conversation
will do something
to compensate for this empty house
This empty house

Waiting time
Track Name: Bart & Friends - There May Come A Time
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
Track Name: Even As We Speak - I Won't Have To Think About You
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
Track Name: Maestros and Dipsos - Dot
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
Track Name: Love Positions - Light Of Day
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.
Track Name: The Shapiros - Gone By Fall
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
Track Name: Hydroplane - Completed Extract From The Previous 7"
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
Track Name: The Cannanes - Lamington Lane
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
