Track Name: Don't Go
If I had a little company tonight
There'd be a chance I'd see your face
And then I know I'd be alright

If I had to pick a day to leave behind
That'd be the day you walk away
'Cause that's the day I lose my mind

My love, don't go

So I'll take this opportunity to say
All of the things I never said to you
That just stayed safely tucked away
In a long forgotten corner of my mind
But now you're here
Don't disappear
Because I won't be left behind

My love, don't go

If I had a little confidence I'm sure
There'd be a chance I'd be myself
And not some pale caricature

If I had to pick a way to see your face
I'd choose to live a thousand years
And be with you in outer space

My love, don't go

So I'll take this opportunity to say
All of the things I never said to you
'Cause I simply couldn't find a way
To articulate the meaning in my head
But now you're gone
I'd carry on
Except I'd rather I had said

My love, don't go

On the day
You went away
My sky turned grey
And I couldn't say
That all the compliments I pay
Could make you stay
Your mind won't sway

And if I may
I'll kneel and pray
Though it's a little Monterey
If it's okay
I'll sit and play
This song for you
I'll sit and play this song for you

My love, don't go
Track Name: Feelin' Rough
I'm running out of things to say
I'm running out of things to try
One last conversation
Before our goodbye

I see the same trees on my left
I see the same clouds in the sky
We're going in circles
And I don't mind

I said I could change
But how could I change?
A second condition could prove to be much more than either one of us could take

Let's talk about the Pacific Ocean
And all of the things that live just beneath the surface
'Cause seeing the ground from under the water
Always makes me feel okay

You could ask for something else
Or you could ask your beating heart
For another direction
And then you could start

Let's talk about how we should live
Let's talk about how we should die
One last conversation
Before our goodbye

I wrote you a letter
Did you get my letter?
A second edition could prove to be much more than either one of us could take

Let's talk about the Indian Ocean
And all of the things that live just beneath the surface
'Cause seeing the ground from under the water
Always makes me feel okay

I wrote you a letter
Are you feeling better?
A second opinion could prove to be much more than either one of us could take

Let's talk about the Antarctic Ocean
And all of the things that live just beneath the surface
'Cause seeing the ground from under the water
Always makes me feel okay

Bloody hell
We may as well
At least as far as I can tell
The fight is over ring the bell

We're going around
We're doing stuff
But nothing's ever going to be enough
Hot diggity damn
I'm feelin' rough
Track Name: Time And Time Again
You're setting yourself up for a fall
Your head is a poison
It's two parts think, two parts alcohol

You're leaving yourself nowhere to turn
Your head is a problem
It's two parts know, two parts never learn

You've picked up your brush
And you've painted yourself into a corner

Your head has been passed over time and time again

I'm hearing your cries from miles away
I meant it the first time when I asked you "why'd you play?"
I'm drying your tears, wiping your eyes
And talking you down from your 250th high rise

You've made up your mind
And you're getting your way any way you can

Your head has been passed over time and time again
Track Name: Unlike Mister Brown
Lately I haven't been feeling so good
I've got problems with my fingers
My hands feel like they're made out of wood

Lately I haven't been feeling so good
I've got problems with my toes
My feet feel like they're made out of wood

Well I'm okay 'cause I'm oak
Hey, the strongest of the wood should be feeling good
I should be feeling fine but...

I've got problems with my knees now 'cause
My legs feel like they're made out of wood

Lately I haven't been feeling so good
I've got problems with my elbows
My arms feel like they're made out of wood

Lately I haven't been feeling so good
I've got problems with my mind
My head feels like it's made out wood

Lately I haven't been feeling so good
I'm made out of wood
Track Name: Wake Up I Miss You
I wish that you would wake up
'Cause I don't see you enough

I wish you'd open your eyes
I love to see your eyes
You've got beautiful eyes

But could you do me a favour?
Could you do one thing for me?
I want to see in your dreams
So when you wake from your dream
Could you tell me your dreams?
I want to see in your dreams

I hope you're dreaming of me
Oh how I wish I could see

But I'll just look at your face
I love to see your face
You've got a beautiful face

But could you do me a favour?
Could you do one thing for me?
I want to see in your dreams
So when you wake from your dream
Could you tell me your dreams?
I want to see in your dreams
