Track Name: Heaven Wasn't In The Sky
If you won't come over
I won't come to your house
If I won't come to you
I'll just live without you

Turn this way and that,
and twist like a snake
If I want to see you
I would have to change

Heaven wasn't in the sky
but I'll get there anyway

If you won't come over
I won't come to your house
If I won't come to you
I'll just live without you

and try to remember
when we could be friends
when I used to follow
everything you said

Heaven wasn't in the sky
but I'll get there anyway
Heaven wasn't in the sky
but I'll get there, just the same.

When I try to please you
I can't see to stand
and when you come in
you wreck everything

I'll go somewhere far,
where you never can.
I won't hear your voice
I won't feel your hands.

Heaven wasn't in the sky
but I'll get there anyway
Heaven wasn't in the sky
but I'll get there, just the same.
Track Name: On This Bed Forever
Oh my darling boy
aren't you ever tired?
Could you agree to lie
on this bed forever? Darling, drag me under.
Outside, colored lights
and sympathetic liars
Could you agree to lie
on this bed forever? Darling, drag me under.
Oh my spider bite, small and red and precious,
could you agree to lie
on this bed forever? Darling, drag me under.
Darling, drag me under
Track Name: Dell of Ferns
now we have picnics on the shore
where no one ever thinks of her
how she fell in & faded out
she faded in a dell of ferns
we quiet play in twos and fours
a dell of ferns we play about
where no one ever drops a ball
or shouts out loud

gradually we forgot her
until she was just part of the water
gradually we forgot her
until she was just part of the water

the little girl got water-pale
until she was invisible
her eyes her face her dress her voice
her arms and legs became a wave
we quiet play in twos and fours
a dell of ferns we play about
where no one ever drops a ball
or shouts out loud

gradually we forgot her
until she was just part of the water
gradually we forgot her
until she was just part of the water

the little girl got water pale
until she was invisible
her eyes her face her dress her voice
her arms and legs became a wave
now we have picnics on the shore
where no one ever thinks of her
how she fell in & faded out
she faded in a dell of ferns

gradually we forgot her
until she was just part of the water
gradually we forgot her
until she was just part of the water
Track Name: You Kill The Dream
It's not the things I'll never do
It's knowing nothing will come true
You kill the dream of love
You kill the dream

Bury her in my place -
you know we have the same face
You kill the dream of love
You kill the dream

Give your tired lungs to me
forever keep your baby teeth
You kill the dream of love
You kill the dream

Fold your arms and lie back
Follow pretty lights, go off the path
You kill the dream of love
You kill the dream
You kill the dream
You kill the dream
Track Name: Done
if you're done the be done
if you're weak don't be strong
put your name on my tongue
when it melts you'll be gone
i don't want anything you want
if you're weak don't be strong
put your name on my tongue
when it melts you'll be gone
Track Name: Teeth For Pearls
i'm your only friend
i'm your only friend
who will ever know
so you slyly stay
wrapped in pretty sheets
and string your teeth for pearls

i'm your only friend
i'm your only friend
who will ever have
so you slyly stay
wrapped in pretty sheets
and string your teeth for pearls

they will never see you
i will have and keep you
flattered and afraid
it's unheard of glamour
it's unheard of glamour
and we won't ever change

it's never winter in the house
and you are never going out again
Track Name: Water
water water water water
as far as the eye can see
as far as the ear can hear
waves are whispering to me

and this lake is like a shadow
that can rise and breathe
and i swam and kissed your mouth
and you gave your heart to me

with your fingers trailing water
and your dialated eyes
if it lets up for an hour

water water water water
as far as the eye can see
as far as the ear can hear
and you gave your heart to me.
Track Name: Count Back
count back a hundred years
before you lived to be a man
count back a hundred years
and roll the backs of your eyes
it's going very fast
and still you won't stop

count back a thousand years
before you lived to be a man
crawl in the fireplace
and you can always be erased
it's going very fast
and still you won't stop

count back a million years
eight hours on a dirty floor
count back a million years
and you are in reverse
it's going very fast
and still you won't stop
and still you won't stop
