Track Name: Dusk Dances
He'd be there every night when we'd leave
He'd hold his paper under a patch quilt sleeve
Defensive position, head down, feet ahead
To the world he might as well already be dead

He drinks in the lights, never says a word
Nods at the bottles, no words are ever slurred
Nostrovia to the table, whispered and slow
A pauper in a pool room, once a king in the snow

There's a Silhouette
Dancing in the Dusk
It does a pirouette
And fades into the dust

A handful thinks they know him well, to them he's a joke
They never imagine him, alone at night time's stroke
In a wine stained shirt, in a heavy soaked coat
With a sob in his chest and an apology in his throat

There's a Silhouette
No prints in the snow
It's time to pay the debt
From 30 years ago

There's a Silhouette
Dancing in the Dusk
It does a pirouette
And fades into the dust

He lives in dusk, Night's a single step away,
Day was another place, the first dance of the ballet,
He can still see her move, he sees her body sway
As he carried her down, sobbing to the railway
Track Name: Stay Away
You're out of touch
You say too much
Be a stranger, stay away from me
Say c'est la vie

Deny yourself
Aspire yourself
You're too good for her's what they'll say to you
So adieu

Stay away from me
Stay away
Stay away from me
Stay away

Voulez vous coucher is not my way
I'd just be losing out
Maybe you'll be good enough some day
Today you're cut in doubt
Life's a battle we all have to live
So honey so should you
We'll play the game but when it ends
Your time is up, we're through

Don't patronize me anymore
I can't forget that feeling
Maybe she is better than me
Why look at me then hold her hand?

Too late too meaningless
Just walk on by me
Take it from me
To me you're not success

Stay away from me
Stay away
Stay away from me
Stay away

Voulez vous coucher is not my way
I'd just be losing out
Maybe you'll be good enough some day
Today you're cut in doubt
Life's a battle we all have to live
So honey so should you
We'll play the game but when it ends
Your time is up we're through

Stay away from me stay away
Stay away from me stay away
Stay away from me stay away
Stay away from me stay away
Track Name: Deafodils
Deafodils

I wont be there tonight
I'll be falling around on my own
I think this is it, I think you'll be fine

Dont come and get me
There will be no-one home
Only a light and that cant be me


I'm trouble, its why you follow
Feel whatever this note instills
While I try not to sound so hollow
To all you pretty little deafodils


You're my little honeysuckle
And you feel that I dont care
Sorry... I dont share.

You're lying I say
I rearrange the letters in my own damn name
I could never be seen to
Be that tame.

I'm trouble, its why you follow
Feel whatever this note instills
While I try not to sound so hollow
To all you pretty little deafodils
Track Name: Fall Apart
Fall apart

Fall apart please lets end this debate
I once knew what i wanted to do
My dreams have died but I’ll still see them through


Losing face at a speed i can’t control
No time to stop and when i do i overflow
Please let me off this ride it's crushing my soul
Caring too much is taking its toll


Chorus
Can't go back
Now i know what i lack
Step outside what are you afraid of?
It’s raining now show me what you’re made of


Fall apart does it have to end this way
I’ll fall apart as you step on my face
When we were young everything went our way
We’ve said it all now there’s nothing left to say


We’ll fall apart if we don’t change our ways
I’ve seen your smile but you haven’t smiled in days
It’s killing me to watch you lose your heart
And we can’t agree so now we’ll fall apart
