Track Name: Daisy
DAISY

Staring at my skeleton again
Can you read my body , can you read my body? Hospital walls they talk in riddles
Will you take our remedy, will you take our remedy?
No, I am a daisy girl, I am a daisy girl

The wheels of my bed squeak their way through the halls leaving scars on the cold plastic floors.
I turn my head to the right at a girl who is busy plucking petals off a rose
She squeezes the juices like blood on her fingers dripping and dropping another
Until her face starts to grin, because he loves her so.

Staring at my skeleton again
Can you read my body, can you read my body? Hospital walls they talk in riddles
Will you take our remedy, will you take our remedy?
No, I am a daisy girl, I am a daisy girl

I am courted by machines, how they sing, how they dance
as they pump back the air into your lungs
With their arms made of tubes and their faces made of buttons
There is one you can press to feel numb
Your drunken veins play a game of deception
stinging, sedation in action
And then they’re patched up again for the night yet to come

Staring at my skeleton again
Can you read my body, can you read my body? Hospital walls they talk in riddles
Will you take our remedy, will you take our remedy?
No, I am a daisy girl, I am a daisy…

One day you’ll be old and withered
Pressing your weight into your pillow
They’ll zip you up in white, and you’ll wear a vale
And it feels just like your wedding day
But you’ll look pale

Staring at my skeleton again
Can you read my body, can you read my body?
Hospital walls they talk in riddles
Will you take our remedy, will you take our remedy?
No, I am a daisy girl, I am a daisy girl
I’ll have some daisies, girl
Track Name: This Can't Be Love
THIS CAN'T BE LOVE

This can’t be love he said
Still he stood there with his feet pointed at me
One pair of all-stars shredded to pieces
This can’t be love he said
But the length of his arms was holding me
Close to the warmth of his heartbeat underneath
This can’t be love he said
This can’t be love he said
And I hoped that the t’s weren’t crossed
I waved a flag and got lost

Even when you lie to me
it’s in your eyes, I can see that
Even when you lie to me it’s alright
Oh and when you lie to me
it’s in your eyes, I can see that
Darling when you lie with me it’s alright
It’s alright with me

I thought it was love I felt
‘Cause it stung and burnt and haunted me
And I yelled at the walls, they stood there protecting me
I thought it was love I felt
And the truth would flow through my veins
Right to a place in my heart where I doubted myself
I thought it was love I felt
I thought it was love I felt
And with forwarding steps that I’d take
a mist took my aching away

Even when you lie to me
it’s in your eyes, I can see that
Even when you lie to me it’s alright
Oh and when you lie to me
it’s in your eyes, I can see that
Darling when you lie with me it’s alright
It’s alright with me
It’s going to be alright
It’s going to be alright
It’s going to be alright with me
Track Name: You Read Me
YOU READ ME

It floats around
through space and sound
It’s wonderous, it catches us
We’re unaware of things that it might
do to us, so restless
Don’t put me down
I’m way over my head again
I’m still amazed
you read me then
Ooh

Here I did stand
covering widest entities, but barely
You took me there
and led the way past rivalry
completed me
Don’t put me down
I’m way over my head again
I’m still amazed
you read me then
Ooh

When you reach for depths I let you
When you take your step I take two
Don’t put me down
I’m way over my head again
I’m still amazed
you read me then
Track Name: Once Twice
ONCE TWICE

You draw a picture on the wall
Though black and white still colourful
You capture me inside your bed
while I held on to your hand

Once, twice, our love is better ‘cause we’re young
Once, twice, we wrote our names upon our hearts

Behind the bed you draw a lake
where we grow old and lie awake
A lane of trees at the right
beneath the starry summer night
Dust of chalk in morning light

Once, twice, our love is better 'cause we're young
Once, twice, we wrote our names upon our hearts

On the lake there floats a boat
It has lost its wave and lost its hope
We fix her up with purple paint
Shed the ropes that once constrained
the beauty builders made

Once, twice, our love is better 'cause we're young
Once, twice, we wrote our names upon our hearts

Give me your best shot, give me your best shot

Once, twice, our love is better 'cause we're young
Once, twice, we wrote our names upon our hearts
Track Name: I Give In
I GIVE IN

You’ll never get back what you lost today
Your innocence is shattered to the wall
You climb sixteen high to lead your mind astray
But the pieces remind you of it all

You can’t put your finger on what’s nowadays
the road everybody seems to take
Somehow you feel nothing but you should
‘cause they told you that you would
Somehow it doesn’t ache

I give in, I give in
You can have all of me
Sincerely, sincerely

You don’t get it’s a one way street
You passed the sign a hundred miles ago
But even if it would have lit up like fireworks,
like a lighthouse by the coast
It’s still the thing you wanted most

I give in, I give in
You can have all of me
Sincerely
I give in, I give in
You can have all of me
Sincerely, sincerely

And even if I wanted to
I gave my whole self to you
and I’m never getting it back
Even if I wanted to
I gave my whole self to you
and I have no courage left

So I give in, I give in, no
I give in, I give in
To you, to you
To you, to you
Track Name: Stalles
STALLES

I know a place with sing-along songs
and that place can right all wrongs
with glass, stained chandeliers
and green velvet chairs
worn out table cloths left in pairs

I carve a letter in the table
Love for everyone to read
Maybe someday I’ll be able
to get the answer that I need
Ooh
I touch the string of a double bass
in the corner of that sing-along place

Thirteen whiskeys roam the menu
Dancing vowels cannot fool you
Cover your eyes
and cover your ears

I carve a letter in the table
Love for everyone to read
Maybe someday I’ll be able
to get the answer that I need
Ooh
I touch the string of a double bass
in the corner of that sing-along place

Ooh
I touch the string of a double bass
in the corner of that sing-along place
and the shadows jammed with me
