Track Name: WAVES IN MY BOOTS
i went down on the beach when it snowed last week
and while i checked on the boats
the waves got in my boots

i dont remember you anymore but the light in the morning is still familiar
and i know that years ago you believed you loved me but ill never believe it was true. no i'll never believe it was true now, i'll never believe it was true.

i lit a fire in the stove and set the pot to boil
then i sharpened my knife and sat at the table cutting potatoes
Track Name: TSARINA BLAIREAU
your distant shape blends into night
a twilit waltz fades into tape hiss

Я тебя люблю blaireau

the days in the wake distorted down south
long lost friends countless as snowflakes

Я тебя люблю blaireau
Track Name: UNFAMILIAR
night broke
on the floor
how far will you go?
and if you knew the way home
would you really dare return?

now youre unfamiliar
now youre unfamiliar
now youre unfamiliar to everyone you ever knew
Track Name: RALUCA
my heartbroken phase dulls now
it wont be long til someone loves you

my house floating away
raluca it wont be long til someone loves you

oh luna rowing in flame
raluca it wont be long til someone loves you
Track Name: CHIMNEY SWIFTS
chimney swifts come back
we know you miss your home
chimney swifts come back home

it was so heartless
there was nothing for you
i was insane with doubt
Track Name: HOMESICK FUCKER
so what brings a homesick fucker like you around here?
i dont know. was only following the sound of a voice.

in my heart theres a coastline
look in my shoes theyre still filled with sand
and from here i see how every change came i feared

so what brings a homesick fucker like you around here?
i dont know. was only following the sound of a voice.
Track Name: BLUE BRUNSWICK
this distortion
is it the shape of your heart?
is it destructive?
has it ever fell in love?

im afraid for you
so afraid
Track Name: ATHENS FOG
i saw you reappear in the athens fog
i whispered in your ear as we walked across town:

"I HOPE YOU KNOW YOU'VE BEEN BETRAYED BY THOSE WHO YOU HELD DEAR. I HOPE YOU KNOW YOU'VE BEEN BETRAYED, LET ME TAKE YOU FAR FROM HERE COS I LOVE YOU I LOVE YOU I STILL LOVE YOU I STILL LOVE YOU."

coast to coast
sound on sound
dont disappear again
dont wander back to fog town.
Track Name: NOT SUFFERING
im not suffering alone any longer
you were the one my heart overcame
you were the star who shone long before
but NOW
YOU'RE A BLACKHOLE

im not suffering alone any longer
you were the song my heart always sang
you were the star who shone long before
but NOW
YOU'RE A BLACKHOLE
