1.
Smoke 03:27
You are too intangible to touch, or hold You are closest to smoke, I suppose So the best that can be done Is to breathe you in, sweet smoke One breath of you is better than none I'd just hold you for a second Or else never breathe again And choke Guess I’ll choke then
2.
Be Your Mine 04:00
If you must know All about it I’ll tell you but you won’t be impressed If you must go And can’t see what this is I guess I’ll just be your friend instead If there’s nothing to this Tell me why we do this All the time I’d be your mine If you can believe In what the stars are telling you to I hope that you can believe me too If you can invent A dream that makes no sense I would try to make it real for you
3.
You ask me if I’m mad Or some kinda psychopath You can’t understand why I’d wanna hang round Well tell me what you demand, and... I’d do it for you Tell me what you like I’d do it for you I know that you’re upset But I’m no kinda TV set Our history, you could read it and weep When I just wanna be your man So tell me and... Chorus Yeah, I’d do whatever Yeah, whatever Chorus Whatever, whatever
4.
What you mean to me It's not exactly deep But still I'd like to keep on Loving you my sweet one What you mean to me It's not exactly deep Still I'd like a repeat of That feeling that you bring on Oh, oh no I'm not letting myself let This get deep It was nothing at all You know that we were just fooling It was nothing at all Shouldn't have to say It was nothing at all This is how I recall it Honest What you mean to me It's not exactly deep But still I'd like to believe ya When you say that you need me
5.
Juniper Tree 02:59
I never wanted to need you I never wanted to care I scoured my mind to erase you But somehow you’re still there Our words are hurtling like spitballs Are we flirting or just mean? To be knowing what’s going on I’d give the heart of a juniper tree
6.
Sometimes this seems like Somebody else’s dream An unfamiliar scene I wish I could Understand these things I couldn’t want you more No I couldn’t Want you more
7.
I never promised that I would be honest, but I try I never made out that things would be great and that you’d never cry But you’re pulling me under, the fire and thunder, in your eyes You’ve struck me dumb see, I am completely petrified And it feels like nothing It feels like nothing It feels like nothing, but You are the substance that I can’t live without I think it’s symbolic all this blood and vomit we’re tied up in Oh, still we speak those, loving echoes and fantasize But now I’m enraptured, truly captured, by the awful truth I wanna shoot you up, but it’s just never enough, so I’m through
8.
We should never forget how this started Like a bayonet run right through us Watching the sunrise from the beach where we had parked Something connected and I held you in my arms We should never forget how this started Broken promises and jilted lovers He said he’s gonna find a gun and kill me in the end Well baby I don’t mind, my time is yours to spend We should never forget how this started Cause we’re losing it, it’s slipping past us I couldn’t lie to you, I couldn’t lie I wouldn’t lie to you, I wouldn’t try
9.
Your kind of love, it can get me down love Such a heavy love that I'm often smothered You might think it's all a game but Pretty soon there'll be no one to play you Cause your kind of love it's gonna bring us down love (but) there's something beautiful about the way you lie Your kind of love it's a lost and found love I'll never know just how you really feel about us You've been chipping away at the edifice So pretty soon there'll be nothing left of us Your kind of love it's gonna bring us down love (but) there's something beautiful about the way you lie Your kinda love
10.
9 Years 03:25
I once knew you better than now But something got lost and I don’t know how It’s not over It’s not over I know that we’ve let it rust But you’ve got me so I’m feeling like it’s turned to dust When it’s not over It’s not over Until it’s done, until it’s done I wish you could be here now So we could talk about it and work it all out It’s not over It’s not over Nine years Nine years and nothing to show
