Track Name: Blindside
At the age of 17
I felt what love could be
From the eyes of a young girl
And the way they looked at me,

But we grew and grew away
I never had to say--

Hey, I'd love you if I could
I love you
If I could
I'd love you, if I could--
You just hit me from a blindside,
You just hit me from a blindside.
You just hit me
blind
--
I met a girl of 24
Who'd never been in love before
Surprises were in store
When we began to court,
shared some pleasure

(her heart broke open
I'm always uncertain)

Now in ten years I'll be wandering
Some foreign street after midnight
And arm in arm with her husband
And shorter hair and wiser eyes
I'll pass by like a ghost in the night
She won't know if it's me or a look alike
I'll just hit her from a blindside
I'll just hit her from a blindside
Thinking I'd love you if I only could
Yes I'd love you if I only could
And if I had some sight I think I would
If I had some sight I think I would
And if I had some sight I know I would
If I had some sight
Had had some sight
Some sight

Now I never see what's coming
No
I never saw what was coming
Track Name: Homeless Dave
Homeless Dave will take to his grave,
a kodak photograph of himself next to Faye Dunaway--big grin on his face.
He slept with high-class prostitutes from disability checks, traded homelessness for sex.

There's a young man I know, knows where to find blow.
Owns 8 pairs of shoes, and a pack of cigarettes.
Drinks with his friends, and bumps their chests.
But he only loved his cousin,
Who hung himself last week.
Everybody knows
but nobody speaks.

I met a bird, she was stuck in a tree
Staring at the streets underneath me
Singing Let It Be
though she isn't free,
I went back to her place
When I had nothing left to say.
She said, "Would you love me without any promises?
Could you love me if I didn't make any promises?"

Sheila owns a TV, collects old movies on VHS to calm her distress,
watches pictures of life with people who don't change,
and things which won't fade,
until the tapes become frayed
Dull like the grey
on homeless Dave's face.


My old friend, he broke our date
To see a girl, because she is a girl
He wants to be her entire world,
but she is not the type
for one at a time.
Track Name: Weekend
It was the weekend and you were so blue
You said you didn't need some girl now following you
So don't get your feelings going for who
You only wanted to slip it to

Find out she's with someone
and you're just what's new.
Track Name: Between the Bars (Elliott Smith cover)
Drink up baby, stay up all night
With the things you could do, you won't but you might
The potential you'll be that you'll never see
The promises you'll only make

Drink up with me now, forget all about
The pressure of days, do what I say
And I'll make you okay, drive them away
The image is stuck in your head

People you've been before
That you don't want around anymore
That push and shove and won't bend to your will
I'll keep them still

Drink up baby, look at the stars
I'll kiss you again between the bars
Where I'm seeing you there with your hands in the air
Waiting to finally be caught

Drink up one more time and I'll make you mine
Keep you apart, deep in my heart
Separate from the rest but I like you the best
Keep the things you forgot

People you've been before
That you don't want around anymore
That push and shove and won't bend to your will
I'll keep them still
Track Name: Woe (Say Anything cover)
All the words in my mouth
that the scene deemed unworthy of letting out
banded together to form a makeshift militia
and burrowed bloodily through my tongue and my teeth.
I stood proud in the gallery
With my open socket of a mouth for them to see.
They all just laughed and said
"That boy, he, that boy's got woe. Woe.
He lives with woe. Woe."

And this girl who I met
Whose pride makes her hard to forget,
She took pity on me horizontally
But most likely because of my band.(hey)

It's all I can get when I'm lonely
And these visions of death seem to own me
In the quiet of the classrooms
All across the stacked United States of Woe. Woe.
We live with woe.

She said "I can't get laid in this town
Without these pointy fucking shoes.
My feet are so black and blue and so are you."
Please take me out of my body
Up through the palm trees
To smell California in sweet hypocrisy.
Floating my senses surround my body.
I wake my nose to smell that ocean burn.

So now I'm forging ahead
Past all the plutocrats who sold me out.
Go sob in your bed.
If life is twice as pretty once your dead
Then send me a card.
I'm still the optimist though it is hard
When all you want to be
Is in a dream.
(A dream)
Track Name: Place To Be (Nick Drake cover)
When I was young, younger than before
I never saw the truth hanging from the door
And now I'm older, see it face to face
And now I'm older, gotta get up clean the place

And I was green, greener than the hill
Where the flowers grew and the sun shone still
Now I'm darker than the deepest sea
Just hand me down, give me a place to be

And I was strong, strong in the sun
I thought I'd see when day was done
Now I'm weaker than the palest blue
Oh, so weak in this need for you
