Track Name: Song for a New Year
Write a song for a new year/ happy birthday to myself
greet it with a sigh and feign a smile

Nobody around here/ seems to want to wish me well
I've been hanging around for a while

I thought I could be something/ at least something I could be proud about/ it’s an archers arrow flight

And then it comes to nothin’/ thoughts you don’t wanna say out loud
I know I’ll never be the perfect type

There you go again talkin’ about love
and all the pretty things you've been dreaming of
I want it bad but maybe not bad enough
and all it takes is a little white lie
yes and all it takes is a little white lie

I could fall like a drop bear/ might stumble and hit the ground
Got no passage for the ride

Well it's not that it's not fair/ you're the treasure I've finally found
but now they only wanna take my life

There you go again talkin’ about love
and all the pretty things you've been dreaming of
But will you be my friend when the goin' gets rough
and all it takes is a little white lie
yes and all it takes is a little white lie
Track Name: Bloomington
It’s two to one they tell me
if she goes she’s gonna stay
it ends up that way

And it's three to one they’re sayin'
well you laugh now but it’s true
it can happen to you too

Long long winter’s comin on
and the air is like a dagger in your bones
last bike ride for the townies with their tight shorts on
down Washington

The lake has turned to water
so to the reservoir we go
see how we ebb & flow

When the record store opens its doors
we’ll get lost in vinyl stacks
and make a B-line back

Long long winter’s comin on
and the air cuts like a dagger in yr bones
last bike ride for the townies with their mohawks on
down Henderson

Bloomington oh Bloomington
you burn me up with your Hoosier sun
you got my baby clutched in your limestone arms
it don’t take much with your pretty charms
Well I’m leavin but don’t say I didn’t warn you
Bloomington

And though apart we’re growing
and our time’s comes to an end
we’re startin to be friends

But the coastal nights are callin'
Georgia, Brooklyn, or LA
blow your wind my way

Long long winter’s comin on
and the air is like a dagger in your bones
the last skate ride for the townies with their tight shorts on
down Washington

In Bloomington oh Bloomington
you burn me up with your Hoosier sun
you got my baby clutched in your limestone arms
you know it don’t take much with your pretty charms
well I’m leavin but don’t say I didn’t warn you
And I’ll never leave you/ I’ll never leave you
I’ll never leave you alone
Bloomington
Track Name: Boybutante Dreams
She looks like someone I used to know
she moves like she’s putting on a show
she’s someone trying hard to get to know
crying tears of man in her eye shadow

With fingers ever slight and light in grace
she reaches for a hard embrace
and her evening gown draped to the floor
what you once knew upped and flew dead and gone for nevermore

And all she wants is to be a boybutante
in the lights and the love of her lovers
She’ll sing you a song/ words that carry her along
Sad-eyed queen of the scene

She’s driving drunk her legs spread wide
forgotten all the new things yet to hide
it's a lonely evening you open up the dresser drawer
dreamin’ of walking tall outside the door

And all she wants to be a boybutante
in the lights and the love of her lovers
She’ll sing you a song/ words that carry her along
Sad-eyed queen of the scene
Track Name: Burnin' Love
Northern lights upon the waters
frozen stars shine down upon our love
just like a fire/ burnin’ hard and bright in the mornin’ light it’s gone
and you’re all alone now/ just the ashes and the silence and the wind
that’s unforgiving/ but it cools you just the same across your face
that’s facing nowhere/ floating through the space that’s in between
what’s dead and dying/ heading toward a once and future past
that can’t be shaken/ and the images are crashing in your brain
sometimes it’s beautiful/ sometimes it’s hard and dark and pain
and now you’re frozen/ spinning helplessly out of control
and now you’re falling/ break free from the confines of your soul
filled with a demon/ driven by a force you did not know
was deep inside you/ and that’s all I have/ all I have
burning love lights upon the water
Track Name: Radar Man
If you should see upon the street
A man equipped with dipole feet
With a family of curves trailing behind
He’s a radar man with a micro mind

His eyes take on a neon gleam
His ears extend to yogi beam
His mouth becomes another pulse gate
His heart pumps blood at a video rate

With a micro second and a micro wave
And micro volts he fills his days
And thereby in the course of time
He becomes a micro-mind

This radar man with the passing of years
Attained an infinite impedance between his ears
And finally succumbed to a heavy jolt
When he got what he thought was a micro volt

The doc looked up from his microscope
Turned to his colleagues and softly spoke
No trace of a brain can I find
He’s a radar man with a micro-mind

With a micro second and a micro wave
And micro volts he fills his days
And thereby in the course of time
He becomes a micro-mind
Track Name: Bad Fog of Loneliness
Bad fog of loneliness
Put a cloud on my single-mindedness
I dream of sweet caress from you

What makes tomorrow guess
What makes me take for me and put aside the rest
I dream of sweet caress from you

So long woman I am gone
So much pain to go through
Come back maybe I was wrong

Bad fog of loneliness
Put a cloud on my single-mindedness
I dream of sweet caress from you
Track Name: Say You Don't Love Me
You tell your friends at night that you really want me
and all those other guys are just a show for me to see
I can see it in your eyes and you’re just the girl for me
why can’t you realize that I’m waiting in your wings

You say you don’t love me / you just couldn’t be true
you say you don’t love me but I know that you do

I lay awake each night wishing you were close to me
if I could hold you tight how happy I would be
It feels so good inside when I pass you on the street
if I could change your mind then we both would be complete

You say you don’t love me / you just couldn’t be true
you say you don’t love me but I know that you do
Track Name: Wild Goose Chase
You got me goin on a wild goose chase
locked me out of my own place
gone gone where have you gone

Travelin round this world again
hear your voice but it’s growin thin
it's gone gone where have you gone

I wanna feel you in a foreign land
feel so weak i can hardly stand
so long so long so long so long

Your sweet skin pressed up against mine
Achilles heel kills me every time
confusion in love/ confusion and love

If I ever say I’m sorry will you hold back the tears from cryin
heaven knows i’ve known heartbreak
still I fear I’ll feel alone

And every night when I dream a dream
she comes to me naked and willing
and I fall for her again

She lights candles on a Friday night
her small hands dancing to the light
singing queen queen oh your majesty

When we parted in the village rain
we drew near and whispered and sang
taxi took you away and in a blur you were gone

I thought I saw ya in Central Park
babe you shook me to the bone
wherever I may walk I fear I’ll feel alone

If I ever say I’m sorry will you hold back the tears from cryin
heaven knows I’ve known heartbreak
still I fear I’ll feel alone
Track Name: Heartbreak Airplane
It was just a heartbreak
it was just a landslide
she was just a milkshake
but darlin’ you’re my honey pie

You can come to Boston
I can go to Lyndale
you can come to Athens
we’ll go to the Taco Stand

Where you are, near but far
far from this heart of mine
it’s not my design
babe I don’t wanna know

High up in an airplane
looking down at Barcelona
you're driving me insane
I only wanna show ya

Wish I had the answers
ain’t even got the questions
I could wrap it up in true love
and give you my affection

Stand where you are, shining star
but so many shine each night
does that make it right
babe I don’t wanna know
