Track Name: Intro: Trumpet Alpha
Instrumental
Track Name: Leave Your World
Seems like it's been a while, baby
I'll come by whenever you want me to
You've waited up
I've waited up
We've been to both sides and seen the grass is fine

So let's draw a line and cross it
Let's bite the hand that stops us

I wanna leave your world better than I found it
Winter breaks, springs me into love
I'll leave your world better than I found it

But as the summer leads to fall
I never wanna leave at all

Over the undertow I'm wavy
But I'm useless when you're not by my side
You've been before
I've been before
I know love and girl you're the only one

So let's find a door and slam it
Don't stop me I can't stand it

I wanna leave your world better than I found it
Winter breaks, springs me into love
I'll leave your world better than I found it

But as the summer leads to fall
I never wanna leave at all

I know that tide is rolling in
But I won't get aboard that ship, no no
And if I never leave leave our love may grow
All I know
All I know

I wanna leave your world better than I found it
Winter breaks, springs me into love
I'll leave your world better than I found it

But as the summer leads to fall
I never wanna leave at all
Track Name: Online Lover
We might go down in the explosion
I'm watching my heart walk on down a dangerous trail
I spend all my time with my soul-mated woman
Who's living inside my computer a holy grail

It's enough to make me wanna say,
"Hey hey. Where was my common sense?
Hey hey. Where was my constant vigilance?"

You knew it was gonna be a nightmare oh
You knew it was gonna be a nightmare oh
You knew it was gonna be a nightmare
Cuz I loved you
But I hadn't even met you yet

Temptation failed to meet me in the middle
Those indulgent, negligent, malfeasant feelings stayed
I'm wired to seek out live in the ether
Though everyone's quick to say feelings online aren't real

Well they're real enough to make me say,
"Hey hey. Where was my common sense?
Hey hey. Where was my constant vigilance?"

You knew it was gonna be a nightmare oh
You knew it was gonna be a nightmare oh
You knew it was gonna be a nightmare
Cuz I loved you
But I hadn't even met you yet

You didn't need to be there
Cuz you were always right there on the line
And on my mind

You knew it was gonna be a nightmare oh
You knew it was gonna be a nightmare oh
You knew it was gonna be a nightmare
Cuz I love you, yeah

It's enough to make me wanna say,
"Hey hey. Where was my common sense?
Hey hey. Where was my constant vigilance?"

You knew it was gonna be a nightmare oh
You knew it was gonna be a nightmare oh
You knew it was gonna be a nightmare
Cuz I loved you
Yeah I love you,
But I haven't even met you
Yet
Track Name: Just So You Know
Oh I look back as you walk by on the city street
From the highest balcony I'm getting vertigo
Just so you know

Oh you're a summer girl, I'm a winter boy
Just so you know
Oh I'm a warm breeze, you're the falling snow
Just so you know
Track Name: No Lies
So far you've fallen down
Skulked around
Lost your crown I know

I said I’d stop your fears
Dry your tears
You have your doubts I know

But I’ve travelled the earth and I've found
No matter where I go
I'm never lost
Because you're mine

Mine in the way that your eyes light up
Mine in the way your hair falls
Mine in the way my life is changed by your smile
You're mine

Mine in the sun kissed fields of time
Mine in the starlit evening sky
Mine in the certain way you open up my

Miiiiiiind
No liiiiiiies
No

Climb the ladder up
Listen up love
Your life is going nowhere
But I'm everywhere

Forget all that you know now
You'll soon be where
You need to be

I've travelled the earth and I've found
No matter where I go
I'm never lost
Because you're mine

Mine in the way that your eyes light up
Mine in the way your hair falls
Mine in the way my life is changed by your smile
You're mine

Mine in the sun kissed fields of time
Mine in the starlit evening sky
Mine in the certain way you open up my

Miiiiiiind
No liiiiiiies
No lies

Well you never found a way
(Well you never found a way to)
To make the promises of your youth come true
(Make your promises come true and)
So I flew in on a cloud
(I’m the airman, here my song flow through the)
And girl you know that the ice is so thin, but trust you’ll never fall in, oh, cuz you’re mine
(wild blue yonder, oh you’re mine)
Track Name: Spite In Song
It's not the lack of being nice
That's my problem with you
You should take my good advice
And fade into the background view oh oh

Heard you had an audition
You didn't get the job
There's no keys in your ignition
And everything's going soft oh

If you were here I wouldn't say this all
But that's the advantage of writing a song
Cuz you know it's all about you
And someday everyone you love will know it too

It'll only hurt just a little bit

Sail on silver boy
Leave tonight
In case you were wondering
Yes, this is all out of spite so

If you were here I wouldn't say this all
But that's the advantage of writing a song
Cuz you know it's all about you
And someday everyone you love will know it too

If you were here I wouldn't say this all
But that's the advantage of writing a song
Cuz you know it's all about you
And someday everyone in the world will know it too
Oooh fuck you
Track Name: Trumpet Bravo
Instrumental
Track Name: Wallflower
You can be a wallflower in the eyes of all those
Prom dance queens and Rhodes Scholars
Prim and proper, dancing under the light

Wishing for a wise wizard
Your own Obi-Wan to help you see through all the haze
In your blastshield visor, til the evening is done

I know it isn't easy being yourself
I know you wanna try so hard
But you don't have to dance to be loved oh no no no no
You don't have to dance
You don't have to dance to be loved oh no

There may be a day when you walk out onto the floor
But you're too shy, you stop you wait, baby
They can't see you, so hide away it's all fine

I know it isn't easy being yourself
I know you wanna try so hard
But you don't have to dance to be loved oh no no no no
You don't have to dance
You don't have to dance to be loved oh no

I know it isn't easy being yourself
I know you wanna try so hard
But you don't have to dance to be loved oh no no no no
You don't have to dance
You don't have to dance to be loved oh no
Track Name: Feelin' The Right Way
That last night in Montreal
Spring 20-fuckin-13
She was having some people over to drink some booze and watch The Room
And I knew she knew I would stay after the party was over

Cuz that last time I saw her she was all:
“Now come on over baby,
Just hold me closer Clayton,
Why don’t you walk me home?”

I guess it’s time to join the party
A quick walk around the corner
Not like the other night when we stumbled round a half an hour
Between Old Dublin and the Shaughnessy Village we were wild

That last time I saw her she was all:
“Now come on over baby,
Just hold me closer Clayton,
Why don’t you walk me home?”
One last look in her eyes,
A frantic kiss goodbye,
I couldn’t wait for more

I mingle with the other artists
Pretend I’m not here just to see her
When the movie was finally over she clear the room and made her move
And never before was I the victim of such casual desire

As that last time I saw her she was all:
“Now come on over baby,
Just hold me closer Clayton,
Why don’t you walk me home?”
One last look in her eyes,
A frantic kiss goodbye,
I couldn’t wait for more

Well it turned out she was feelin’ the right way
And I was at the right time, in the right place
So that was how we left it
No regrets but no love

Well it turned out she was feelin’ the right way
And I was at the right time, in the right place
So that was how we left it
No regrets but no love
No love
No love
No!
Track Name: Other Life
I don’t remember most of my other life
Yeah it easily just fades away
Names and faces all get lost at sea
But I’ll never forget them saying yes to me

I don’t remember most of my other life
Yeah it easily just fades away
Names and faces all get lost at sea
But I’ll never forget them saying yes to me

Say yes and know I’m leaving the light on
In my bedroom I don’t like the dark
Cuz your soul is in your eyes
And in the light I can see your heart
I can see your heart
I can see your heart
I can see your heart yeah yeah
Track Name: BE With Your Lover
That girl she watches over me
She makes me get up, she helps me go out and live a life
And I can be comatose and lazy
But with her I’m alright

And no one needs to tell me
That she’s the one

Drove South and didn’t stick around
To see her takeoff, to see her leaving, no long goodbyes
No I’ll never be whole
Until she doesn’t leave anymore

But at least I’m not in Kansas
After all

Don’t hesitate
The pain is too much to take, just
BE with your lover
BE with your lover
Just BE with the one you love

There’s no doubt no doubt no doubt
I get down sometimes and I can’t take the pressure
And it costs too much to get out
No wonder people live and die in their hometowns

So I hope I’m not stuck dreaming
Forever

Don’t hesitate
No matter how long it takes, just
BE with your lover
BE with your lover
Just BE with the one you love

BE WITH YOUR LOVER
Track Name: My Cottage
By a river in the forest no one else could cross
I built myself a cottage where I go to get lost
But you made it 'cross the water now I want you in my life

This solitary life is startin' to be a bust
So come over to my bed and help me bang off the dust
I'm lonely, yes I'm lonely, and I want you in my life

My love is deeper than the ocean
I'm isolated, but never stopped hoping
Someone would come and find me
Invite themself inside and revive me

This prehistoric solitude was mine to behold
But even in the summer I was feeling so cold
When this woman crossed the water and she opened up the door

I was stubborn, I was overcome with fury and angst
And I didn't know just what to do to temper my pain
Till you walked up to my cottage and you opened up the door

My love is deeper than the ocean
I'm isolated, but never stopped hoping
Someone would come and find me
Invite themself inside and revive me

I had set myself up for a whole life of
Wasted hours and hard times
Little did I know
My cottage was your target and I was your bullseye

My love is deeper than the ocean
I'm isolated, but never stopped hoping
Someone would come and find me
Invite themself inside and revive me

By a river in the forest no one else could cross
Oh yeah
