Track Name: You're Never Here In Summertime
Lucy, don't you know
You're only made of snow.
I can't find joy in anything.
I've lost you now for here hits the Spring.
I try to ease my pain
Searching for a love letter in the rain.

Lucy, don't you know
You're only made of snow.
How and I cry and pine
'Cuz you're never here in the Summertime.
I lay on the grass
Wondering which cloud could be your home.

Lucy, don't you know
You're only made of snow.
How I moan and grieve
As i shuffle my feet through the Autumn leaves.
I wade across the streams
Wondering if you'll roll by and kiss my feet.

Lucy, don't you know
You're only made of snow.
I couldn't feel more fine
Now you're back with me for the Winter time.
No-one knows your charms -
They all think you're cold, but I know you're warm.

I always knew that you were with me
From the moisture in my breath to the edges of the sea.
Track Name: That Time I Broke Your Leg
I've been noticing you for a while
Since that time I broke your leg
In karate class -
I really kicked your ass.

And I've been noticing your for a year,
Since we became good friends, my dear,
Saw you stony faced with fear
When all the boys and
Girls approach your ears with proclamations
Some so sweet, but you still smack them away.

Listen here, Jenny,
Oh, you really think you know me,
But you have no idea the people I have lost -
Lost to lies
And infidelities,
Lost to paranoia and pleurisy,
Lost to my gullibility
If I have to mourn once more then I will surely break.

There's something I have to say
You don't have to say a word
Just friends is not enough
I already heard it all from Kevin,
Don't you know he tells me everything?

Jonny, won't you let me in?
Jenny, won't you go away?
I have eyes for no-one else
That's what my ex-wife said
And, now she's shacked up with some floozy in Dakota

You've got to take a chance in life
Don't need more reasons to lament
You could get hit by a bus
I'd prefer that to this argument
I've been there, done that,
I just cannot go through that again.

Jonny, won't you let me in?
Jenny, won't you go away?
I'll be the greatest love of your life
He's already dead
And lives in every beat and breath and bite and kiss
In every sip and stroke
In every heart
In every heart....
In every heart exploding wish

Is there nothing I can say?
There is nothing you can say.

Jonny, why did you leave us
Getting hit by a bus, like I warned you.
Now ours forever will be the love
That never had a chance.
Track Name: Bone On Paddle
Slow goes the boat,
The scratching of bone on paddle,
The terror as the vessel wobbles
Above the lake of limbo.

Slow goes the boat
To the place that's both Hell and Heaven,
To the same old caverns
She tired of long ago.

Slow goes the boat,
The scratching of bone on paddle.
A journey made so many times
Even Death has forgotten how to cry.
Track Name: Go Into Her Arms And Breathe
You are a wonder -
Aware and afraid.

You put on such a brave face
But I can see
You're just holding together
With thin threads of hope.

Still - they break easily.

Let's go for a walk
And lay on the grass
For the whole of the Autumn
'Till we're covered by leaves,
Let ourselves rot away,
Sink into the Earth -
Go into her arms
And breathe.
Track Name: I've Got A Few Ideas In Mind
Nice to meet you in this sweaty stew.
Hey, gorgeous eyes that are lusting to(o)
Come back to mine,
Let's spend some time,
I got a few ideas in mind.

Bring out the ropes and gags and cuffs,
Don't be afraid if you'll mess it up.
At least we'll have fun
Stumbling upon
The best ways to make each other come.

Let's fool around and destroy the bed
Don't hold your noise no matter what they said.
Let's break and bend,
Let's invite a friend,
Let's voice our lusts and then attend to them.

Let's go on the lake where the water's soft.
A champagne picnic then I'll suck you off
In the sunshine,
Let's spend some time,
I got a few ideas in mind.

Let's go outside where it's rainy and warm,
Let's fuck loving and hard during the thunderstorm,
Let's blow each other's minds,
Let's spend some time,
I got a few ideas in mind.

Lover, I'm cool, yeah, I must insist.
But you're leaving soon and it's getting you stressed.
But, darling, that's fine,
Let's make the most of this time,
I got a few ideas in mind.
