Track Name: Lost In The Darkness
no dancing
dancing leads to kissing
kissing leads to holding hands in the dark
holding hands leads to long talks at night
long talks at night lead to falling in love

and the taste is so sweet and the smell is so good
and the feeling that your lost in the woods
the flash and the touch and the kiss and the spark
and the feeling that you’re lost in the dark

no flirting
flirting leads to touching
touching leads to cuddling in bed
cuddling in bed leads to believing it’s real
believing it’s real leads to falling apart

and the taste is so sweet and the smell is so good
and the feeling that your lost in the woods
the flash and the touch and the kiss and the spark
and the feeling that you’re lost in the dark

the flash and the touch and the kiss and the spark...

no looking
looking leads to wishing
wishing leads to hoping you’ll meet
hoping you’ll meet leads to daydreams of love
daydreams of love lead to hearts broken like glass

and the taste is so sweet and the smell is so good
and the feeling that your lost in the woods
the flash and the touch and the kiss and the spark
and the feeling that you’re lost in the dark

the flash and the touch and the kiss and the spark...
Track Name: Internet Girls
I have a crush on a girl I’ve never even met
it’s unlikely I ever will and yet, and yet, and yet
I’m smitten like there’s kittens in mittens in my heart
and they’re trying to claw their way out
and they’re clawing my insides apart
apart, apart, apart
they’re clawing my insides apart

She found me on Flickr, she liked some picture, I guess, some picture I took
So I added her to my myspace page, I stuck her right in my top 8
I fell in love with the comics she drew about her love, about her life
I fell in love with her lovelife, I guess, I fell in love with her love
In love, in love, in love
I fell in love with her love

Go out, go take a chance
Get the clap off some dancehall tart
I’m gonna stay safe at home
Internet girls don’t break your heart
They flirt and tease without deceiving
Go home to their men and it isn’t cheating
They tell you secrets and it isn’t wrong
because they own your heart but they’ll never belong
To you, to you, to you
They’ll never belong to you
to you, to you, to you
they’ll never belong to you

I know if she lived in this town, of this I have no doubt
She would do nothing for me, I would just weird her out
And can you crush on somebody when you’ve plumbed
the depths of their soul
When you know the secrets they keep beneath their pillows at night
Like dirty little lumps of coal

They flirt and tease without deceiving
Go home to their men and it isn’t cheating
They tell you secrets and it isn’t wrong
Because they own your heart but they’ll never belong
To you, to you, to you
They’ll never belong to you
To you, to you, to you
They’ll never belong to you
Track Name: Love Crush
hot rod
road rash
gonna take you on a
car crash

ooh-whee
what a rush
oh baby
it’s a love crush

oom-boppa
boppa-mau-mau

ooh baby
you’re outa sight
you got me crushin baby
all through the night

naughty naughty
shame shame
I kissed a girl
with no name

black road
red line
ooh-whee baby
it’s a love crime

oh baby
you’re my rollin stone
gonna take you off
off the bone
Track Name: Crushed Grapes
I got a wound that needs stitchin’
before this night procedes
everytime I start itchin’
I scratch it till it bleeds

I wanna see you tonight — I like that crooked smile
I wanna woo you right — but it’s been a while, it’s been a while

I got a heart that needs mendin’
it’s missing buttons and beads
like a garden that needs tendin’
my soul is full of weeds

I wanna take you out — you make me laugh
if it puts you at ease — you can pay for half
it’s not a date if you pay for half

I just got straightened out, I just got straightened out
I just got straightened out, I just got straightened out

I need to find the tap in my chest
to drain this vinegar
my heart’s been eating itself out
over memories of her

I wanna see you soon — you can call my bluff
tomorrow afternoon — isn’t soon enough, isn’t soon enough

I just got straightened out,
my hearts been crushed
I just got straightened out,
like a boxer’s nose
I just got straightened out,
crushed like grapes
I just got straightened out,
between a vinter’s toes
Track Name: Juliet
I couldn’t remember the rhyme
beer before or beer after wine
now I’m really not looking so good
and I’m really not feeling so fine

just to be on the safe side
crack me open another beer
just let me finish this glass of sherry
and I figure I’ll be in the clear

don’t hold it against me
cockeyed and half-mumbling
I love you I love you always I’ve loved you
we just met but always I’ve loved you

you were a duchess, I was a pirate
I kidnapped you in 1487
we lived on a tropical island
we made love in a little grass hut

I think I’m gonna be sick now
someone unroll the window
I can’t seem to make my fingers work
my fingers are ten little jerks

but in another life they held you tight
on a battlement on a stormy night
the wind blew my hair with a rakish flair
with a rakish flair

it’s so nice of you
to help me into bed
why don’t you stay? I’ll make you breakfast
if I don’t wake up undead

I’ve taken so much from so many
I want someone to whom I can give
and in this light as you gaze at me sadly
you look like juliet if she had lived
juliet if she had lived
juliet if she had lived

I love you I love you always I’ve loved you
we just met but always I’ve loved you
I love you I love you always I’ve loved you
we just met but always I’ve loved you
Track Name: Crush On You
oooh-oooh I got a crush on you

I wanna hold your hand
I wanna hold you hips
I wanna pull you closer
I wanna kiss your lips

if you wanna know what I plan to do
about this crush I got, this crush I got on you
if you wanna know what I plan to do
about this crush I got, this crush I got on you

oooh-oooh I got a crush on you

I wanna brush your hair
I wanna chew your gum
I wanna hold your books
I wanna suck your thumb

I gotta figure out if it's really true
this crush I got, this crush I got on you
I gotta figure out if it's really true
this crush I got, this crush I got on you

oooh-oooh I got a crush on you

I’m on the rebound and what’s that sound
the revenge train is pulling into town
she’s on the rebound, she’s getting around
the revenge train is pulling into town

oooh-oooh I got a crush on you

can’t you tell me if it's really true
this crush I got, this crush I got on you
can’t you tell me if it's really true
this crush I got, this crush I got on you
Track Name: Bent Hearts
Boy: you called and I came
knowing I shouldn’t be here again

Girl: in the middle of the night

Boy: it ain’t right

Girl: between scrabble

Boy: and green tea

Girl: a tentative touching of knees

Boy: sitting thigh to thigh

Girl: I’ve only got a ‘U’ and an ‘I’

Boy: silent fingers hesitantly entwine
unsure of what is meant

Girl: relax, what could be the harm in holding hands?

Boy: it’s sweet and innocent

Girl: we won’t break hearts

Boy: they’ll just get bent

Boy: I think she heard a ‘rumour’

Girl: eight points

Boy: no, it’s a double letter score

Girl: then I guess it’s nine

Boy: M-I yours?

Girl: R-U mine?

Girl: why did you put down ‘qualms’?

Boy: ‘q’ on a triple word score

Girl: why don’t you spell it out?

Boy: I have my ‘doubts’

Girl: do you want more?

Boy: silent bodies hesitantly entwine

Girl: this was never my intent

Boy: relax, it’s okay for friends to cuddle

Girl: this will end in discontent

Boy: we won’t break hearts

Girl: they’ll just get bent

Girl: i called

Boy: and I came

Girl: knowing you shouldn’t be here again

Boy: in the middle of the night

Girl: it ain’t right

Girl: I get six points for ‘try’

Boy: you’d get more for ‘goodbye’

Girl: I just don’t have the tiles

Boy: you’ve been hoarding them for a while

Girl: silent fingers hesitantly let go

Boy: without words or argument
relax, no fault no fowl and no harm

Girl: it wasn’t without incident

Both: broken hearts
start out bent
