Track Name: All in Good Time
Just one time is not enough, but two times is way too much. I don’t know, but I think you’re alright. You’ve gotta learn to have no fear if you wanna make it around here. The faces in the dark, that you have to fight. And I know, I know her eyes are the colour of the ocean and I know, I know the stormy waves of emotion come crashing, crashing down on you. All in good time. So don’t you sway me to and fro. Why don’t you take, just take it slow? ‘Cause it’s alright if you miss the early train. ‘Cause ocean-eyes is here to stay. She’s not about to sail away. So stay right here boy and open your suitcase. And I know, I know, you’ve waited oh so long. And I know, I know your currents are far too strong and they’re pulling, pulling you ashore. All in good time. Just one time, one time is not enough, but two times, two times is way too much. And I don’t know, I don’t know but I think, I think you’re alright. All in good time.
Track Name: Slightly More Politely
Well count yourself lucky that I know what to say, because you don’t know the rules and I don’t want to play. And I see, oh I see you’re not entirely to blame. But I say, oh I say, be nice just the same. And I won’t put it lightly, I’ll say, quite rightly. In our lesson of etiquette, we’re not done yet. Oh I’ll ask you to ask me slightly more politely. Well sometimes it’s hard to find the right thing to say, but your spectacular vernacular extends to ‘okay’. And I know, oh I know it’s just how you were raised but just don’t, oh just don’t say my name in that way. And I won’t put it lightly, I’ll say, quite rightly. In our lesson of etiquette we’re not done yet. Oh I’ll ask you to ask me slightly more politely. Don’t say my name. Oh I’ll ask you to ask me slightly more politely.
Track Name: Begins What Might
All this time to choose can mean no choice at all. And all the days we lose are really only a small part of the life that we will one day lead. I forget sometimes that I’ve got time to, time to breathe. There’s so much to know and there’s so little time. I wish that time would slow and perhaps then I could be all the things I want to be. There are too many doors surrounding, surrounding me. All that I can do is go to sleep at night. The sun will wake with you and so begins what might be the day that’s gonna change your life, or it could be nothing at all, nothing at all.
Track Name: Bells Song
What would it take for me to awake to the bells that are ringing from the tower? They shout your name, and it drifts through my window-pane. The boys and the girls oh, how they love you. I don’t want to ring those bells for you. All I want to do is sing for you. Do I dare to walk down your street to the square? Pass your door, window seat, second floor. I know your name, and it drifts through my mind each day, along with words I can sing but can’t say. I don’t want to ring those bells for you. All I want to do is sing for you.
Track Name: The Part You Haven't Learned
Read the part you haven’t learned, the wood that’s left to burn, and all the things that yearn will disappear in turn. Read the part you haven’t learned or else the words will burn and all the things that yearn will disappear in turn. Hold my cold and shaking hands. Golden grains of sand and oh, the marching band tells of promised land. Hold my cold and shaking hands take them from the sand. The lovely marching band leads to promised land. Stop, just wait and breathe it in. There’s nothing left to win. The line’s already thin. The sun will burn your skin. Read the part you haven’t learned, the part you haven’t learned and all the things that yearn will disappear in turn.
Track Name: Crimes
Darling don’t forgive me for my crimes. I need to be punished for all time. Darling don’t forgive me for my crimes. I need to be punished for all time. Don’t you think it’s time we had ourselves a little talk? I’ve been counting down the days with lines of white chalk. I’ve been doing, I’ve been doing time for you. What else, what else can I do? These prison walls have held me for too long. I shake the bars and hope you hear my song. These prison walls have held me for too long. I shake the bars and hope you hear my song. I know I said to lock me up and throw away the key. Ever since I heard your voice I’m longing to be fre. I’ve been doing, I’ve been doing time for you. What else, what else can I do? Darling please forgive me for my crimes.
