Track Name: Play The Game
Water on the feelings that I do not like
about the situation, I can feel my teeth trying to break the ice
I’m helpless, helpless when it comes to you
I’ll say nothing, hope it gets through, through

I don’t know how to play the game you say that we’re not playing,
we’re not playing well
and I’m not proud of all the loud things I’ve been saying
I lost my way inside our house

I would be a burden with the things that I feel
if I spell them out and make as if they’re real, I’m not sure what is real
I’m selfish, selfish when it come to you
I guess I feel left out, I’ll pull through, through

I don’t know how to play the game you say that we’re not playing,
we’re not playing well
and I’m not proud of all the loud things I’ve been saying
I lost my way inside our house
Track Name: Soon
I can’t let you sweep me off my feet just yet
when they’ve only just landed firm on the ground
and I’m so tired of being messed around
You’ve watched me shift my shape and fall into this mess
so maybe you could wait for me, I’ll do my best
to get out of this dreary place
I’ll have to face this loneliness

I’ve been hiding my tears from my mother and she,
she and my father still laugh together, see
I’d like to have real love someday
and I’d like to get past this heartbreak soon

I feel like I’m living when I smell of cigarette smoke,
rich and bitter, and yesterday I couldn’t stop remembering him
oh, what a waste of breath and time

I’ve been hiding my tears from my mother and she,
she and my father still laugh together, see
I’d like to have real love someday
and I’d like to get past this heartbreak soon
Track Name: Keeping Time
Now I'm keeping time, or at least I'm learning how to
I'm taking flight, or at least I'm just about to
all the ways we can bruise are of use to us
all the things I have burnt, I have learnt their cost
and oh there's cracks in me
oh, the cracks in me
I've been braced by the ignition,
waiting for a command
Young girl, I'm tired of your wishing
and waiting has done me harm
I've done me harm

I was sinking in to lust like it was water
always juggling something I could not afford to
but I want someone who doesn't mind it when I stand,
I want someone who's funny looking when they dance
I wanna dance with them,
I wanna dance with them

I've been braced by the ignition,
waiting for a command
Young girl, I'm tired of your wishing
and waiting has done me harm

I want the time to pass so I am speeding down the road
I want the time to pass so I can move on and swallow this
and God, I want the time to stop so I don't have to grow old

Wooo
Wooo
Track Name: Slow Mover
Friend, old friend, it’s 4am
What are we doing in the street?
I don’t want to buy fried chicken,
I wish I was going to sleep
I don’t want to kiss you underneath that flashing sign
What’s the hurry, we’re not ready, we’ve got plenty of time

Maybe we’ll get married
Maybe fall in love
Could you make me fall asleep when you’re holding me
Try set me on fire, try set me on fire, try set me on

There’s someone else but I twist all of his words and he twists mine
I’ll have to let him go, we sometimes fit but we always lie
He thinks we could make it work but only when he’s drunk
and you think you could help me swim, but I’ve already sunk

So maybe you’ll get married
Maybe fall in love
Could you go on and fall asleep, when you’re not holding me
Go get set on fire, go get set on fire,
go get set on

Friend, I am a slow, slow mover
Friend, I am a slow, slow girl
trying to be kind, kind, kinder
crawling in another world

But maybe one day we’ll get married
Maybe fall in love
Could you make me fall asleep when you’re holding me
Try set me on fire, try set me on fire, try set me on fire…
try set me on
Track Name: Missing Me
Loving you has thrown me
Loving you is lonely, loving you is lonely

Oh, you can swagger
You can gather attention
But I’m sick of your photographs,
I'm so sick of your photographs
Oh, you can chatter
You could talk me to nothing
But I’m tired of being your sweetheart,
I’m tired of being your sweetheart

(Chorus)
Loving you has thrown me
You have been my only rock on the ground
Now that I’m out of sight, loving you is lonely
Loving you is lonely

I don’t want a baby that I beg and that I borrow
And I don’t want to follow you,
I’m just too proud to follow you
You don’t want a baby you’re gonna have to call tomorrow

You better be missing me now
You better be missing me now
You better be missing me now

(Chorus)
Loving you has thrown me
You have been my only rock on the ground
Now that I’m out of sight, loving you is lonely

Oh, loving you is lonely
Lonely, la, lonely,
Loving you is lonely
Oh, loving you has thrown me

You better be missing me now
You better be missing me now
You better be missing me now
You better be missing me now
You better be missing me now
You better be missing me now
You better be missing me now
You better be missing me now
Track Name: Push
I’ll say our goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
I’ll save us some time

I’ve never been good at hiding my feelings from my face
I let you take the lead, now I’m all dressed up with no place to go
and if I had dignity, I put it down right when we began,
but I’ve got back my pride

Oh lover, you let me so close to the line
Push me further and further, I’ll save us time time
if you’re gonna push me over, I’ll do it
I will say our goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
I’ll save us some time

I never met her, don’t want to, she’ll just give a face
to the hole that I dug in this stupid minefield where I tried to plant my love,
plant my love

Oh lover, you let me so close to the line
push me further and further, I’ll save us time time
if you’re gonna push me over, I’ll do it
I will say our goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
I’ll save us some time

Push me over the line, and I’ll save us some time,
push me over the line, and I’ll save us some time

I’ll say our goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
I’ll save us some time
Track Name: Pasta
My bedroom is a disaster
My dog has got kidney failure, failure
I've been sitting at the bar too much, kissing people in my head
and saying rubbish things I should not have said

And they're building things outside my window
Everywhere I look there are signposts, signposts
But I just sit in my house making noise for fun
and I'm not moving much, or proving much to anyone

I've been lost, I've been lost
I've been lost, I've been lost for a while
and I'm feeling tired
I've been lost, I've been lost
I've been lost, I've been lost for a while

And I spend so much time eating pasta
Though I'm probably allergic,
and other people seem to move so much faster
I wonder why I'm feeling lonely
When there's plenty of ways to be alone,
I guess I spent all of yesterday on my phone

I've been lost, I've been lost
I've been lost, I've been lost for a while
and I'm feeling tired
I've been lost, I've been lost
I've been lost, I've been lost for a while


How am I simultaneously on top of someone's pedestal
and also underneath someone else's shoe
Oh, isn't it a shame about the view

Can anybody climb aboard this structure I have made
to wrap myself around,
I promise that there is room
Oh, isn't it a shame about the view

I've been lost, I've been lost
I've been lost, I've been lost for a while
and I'm feeling tired
I've been lost, I've been lost
I've been lost, I've been lost for a while
But now I'm really trying

I've been lost, I've been lost
I've been lost, I've been lost for a while
but I'm really trying
I've been lost, I've been lost
I've been lost, I've been lost for a while
Track Name: Standout
You don’t have room for me, that I can understand
but you don’t have words for me, even though you’re a rambling man
darling, why are you acting like this was all pretend
and holding your head so high at the end

I felt it all change today, felt this mess come undone
I was hoping you’d try to say something with a little bit of love, cause

You were a standout, and I am sleeping alone now
You were a standing, now I’m sleeping, now I’m sleeping

I brought time with me when I landed back home in the heat,
You forgot to be kind to me, and we’ve never had air that was clean
oh, I know I’m responsible for half of the shit that went on
and the way that we kept in touch for so long

and I felt it all change today, but I still let my dress come undone
I was hoping you’d try to say something with a little bit of love, like

You were a standout, and I’ll be sleeping alone now
You were a standout, now I’m sleeping, now I’m sleeping

I don’t want someone, I don’t want someone
I don’t want someone, I don’t want someone but I do, yeah
I don’t want someone, I don’t want someone, I wanted you
I don’t want someone, I don’t want someone
I don’t want someone, I don’t want someone but I do, yeah
I don’t want someone, I don’t want someone, I wanted you, you
I wanted you, you, I wanted you, you
Track Name: Mood Song
I wouldn’t drive down your street, I don’t drive
and I wouldn’t dance if you asked me
I’m not in the mood to jive

There’s a thing you’d like to say that you won’t
there’s a thing I’d like to do that I can’t
ooh, ooh

Well there’s no need to explain it
don’t I know that people, we tend to get shaky
so let’s just keep that ship at bay
keep that shit far away from me

If there’s a think you’d like to fix, well go on
and if you’d rather not be here, move along
ooh, ooh

it’s better to run
it’s better to run
it’s better to run
Track Name: And I Am A Woman
The other night, I explained as we drove along
that I don’t like the man who sings this song
I have heard him referring to girls as if they are a game,
And you and I have been going together for a while,
but you were alone every time you came

and you are in my home now, and I am a woman

I want to get dirty now that I’ve got clean
and when I am bleeding I don’t feel like speaking,
I’m not your teacher, I am little and I am learning,
and have been burning to remind you
that we all live right beside this door,
and what we keep it open for

you are in my home now, and I am a woman
you are in my home now, and I am a woman

you are in my home, you are in my home
and i am a woman, a woman, a woman
Track Name: If You Call
I’m putting down the habit, that habit of looking back on all of it
and wishing I had done better
Oh, I just want to feel it, feel that I like who I’m becoming
and feel alright in the quiet

I know the sun don’t rise and set above me
I don’t want you to compromise a lot to love me

But if you call, I’ll turn on the light for you
If you call, I’m going to be bright for you
If you call

I’ve been a little darker than I’ve been wanting you to see,
though you’ve been coming round needing to be looked after
Well, I don’t have an answer why I’ve been buried underneath
some kind of mountain that I made, oh some disaster

I know the sun don’t rise and set above me
I don’t want you to compromise a lot to love me

But if you call, I’ll turn on the light for you
If you call, I’m going to be bright for you
If you call

I’ll tell you something that I’ve learned as we’ve been watching people leaving
All the loving that we’ve earned is going to keep us breathing,
All the loving that we’ve earned is going to keep us breathing,
is going to keep us breathing, is going to keep us breathing
