Track Name: Head Over Heels
I tried
I tried more than once
Not to be
Wholly in love
But you stood
In your room
Bending my will
Like Uri bent the spoon

Now I’m head over heels
Im a boat lost at sea
Im looking sideways baby
‘Cause your standing next to me

I came
I came to my sense
You fell
You fell out of bed
I fell
I fell into you
And your collection
Your collection of spoons

Now I’m head over heels

And every single day
Every day that goes by
It gets harder to see
Whats right in front of me
Now you are by my side
And I am by yours too
I am sideways looking
Always looking at you

I’m head over heels
Im a boat lost at sea
I’m looking sideways baby
‘Cause your standing next to me

You are where I’m heading
You are where I’ve been
I’m sinking my ship baby
Deep in your ravine

My atomic number eight
The fuel in my sweet ride
My heart and my spleen
The apple of my eye

I’m head over heels
I’m head over heels
I’m head over heels
I’m head over heels

Track Name: Bird Don't Sing
I took my cage
And I went down to the store
I put down my cage
In plain view on the floor

Bird don’t sing to me no more
No bird don’t sing to me no more

We went to the lake
With bird in cage
And at that lake
We watched the seasons change

Bird don’t sing to me no more
No bird don’t sing to me no more

Wohoa Wohoa Wohoa
Wohoa Wohoa Woa

We went for a swim
Bird rested on my chin
And I backstroked my way
Across then back again

Bird don’t sing to me no more
No bird don’t sing to me no more

I took bird to heaven
And I asked what could be done
And St Peter told me
I was in the wrong section

Bird don’t sing to me no more
No bird don’t sing to me no more

Wohoa Wohoa Wohoa
Wohoa Wohoa Woa
Wohoa Wohoa Wohoa
Wohoa Wohoa Woa

I took bird Home
And I closed the door
Bird lay still there
No bird didn’t sing anymore
Track Name: O Darkness Come For Me
I feel a darkness
A comin over me
Yes I feel a darkness
A comin over me

So I’ll learn to love the darkness
Like I’ve learned to love with thee
I’ll learn to love the darkness
O darkness come for me

I see no light
Shining down on me
I see no light
Beating down to lead me

I’ll learn to love the darkness
Like I’ve learned to love with thee
I’ll learn to love the darkness
O darkness come for me

And dowse me to my soul
So I so I can see
I’ll show you my love
A love I learned from thee

I’ll learn to love the darkness
Like I’ve learned to love with thee
I’ll learn to love the darkness
O darkness come for me

Track Name: Waiting Place
I went down
To the waiting place
And waited in-between
An empty chair
And a taxidermy bear
And my thoughts were turning mean

And in walked
A handsome man
He was dressed the same as me
With a great big hat
And all in black
Of a medium height and lean

I went down
I went down to wait
I went down
To the waiting place

The handsome man
Moved to where
The empty chair had been
I had moved it when
I entered in
Now it had been redeemed

The room was still
And I was too
He flung his hand into his pocket
And standing up
He left it there
It was as if he had forgot it

I went down
I went down to wait
I went down
To the waiting place

And finally
The silence broke
The handsome man did speak
I told him that
I understood
Beneath the taxidermy teeth

And now the time
It was a getting on
If we were going to succeed
So we busted down
The hallway door
And left the waiting in the wings

I went down
I went down to wait
I went down
To the waiting place
