Track Name: tommy
tommy, now that you've
got your pinstriped pony
what am i supposed to do?
i may not be alone
but i'm getting lonely

you rode off into
my memories of you
picking clover with me
beneath the moon
and by the wine-bottled sea

but i am just a little girl
with nothing left in this lonely world
but a fishing hook
and a butterfly net
Track Name: kitty
kitty, your worries are over
the crickets are chirping
in the clover

if you let me, i'll pet you
i'll hug you, i'll love you
forever

kitty, you're back from your adventures
your fur is messy and you haven't
purred

if you let me, i'll pet you
i'll hug you, i'll love you
forever

but you'll spend some time
staring out your window

but i, i want you to know
if you want to go, it's okay
i won't make you stay

kitty, you can have my leftovers
without always looking over your shoulder

if you let me, i'll pet you
i'll hug you, i'll love you
forever

kitty, you can sleep here with me tonight
and we'll still hear the crickets
in the starlight

and if you let me, i'll pet you
i'll hug you, i'll love you
forever

and if you let me, i'll pet you
i'll hug you, i'll love you
forever
Track Name: she died
i've been waiting for that girl
to come to my front door
cops found her body
down the well

said she was happy
when she fell

and i'm not going to cry
it's not my fault
she died
she died
she died
she died

and i still remember what
she said before she was dead

her last words to me
what should i be?

and i'm not going to cry
it's not my fault
she died
she died
she died
she died


one of these days,
i was walking through
a park when i heard
someone say to me

you know, it'll be dark soon
and then your baby will come back to you

and i'm not going to cry
it's not my fault
she died
she died
she died
she died

and i've been out
all through the night
searching for my baby's light
she never came back to me

and i know it was all just
a hoax to scare me

and i'm not going to cry
it's not my fault
she died
she died
she died
she died
Track Name: wish
it's a wish
i wish i never made
cause dreams like these
were made to break

and your boat would finally
float away
and take you back out to the sea
someday

but the fish
they were my only friends
they told me where
the souls were sent

and you were drowning, i knew
by the sounds all around me
i'd never hold you in my arms
again

clouds above us
water deep
we wish we were still
sound asleep
and the bells were not ringing
from the steamships bringing
a thousand people to see us
and weep
Track Name: phil gray - saturday (acoustic original)
i was born on a saturday
early in the morning
my mother had seen better days
before she had borne me

i was one child too many
she didn't need any

and with my face placed to the window
on the car ride home
i saw the whole world wide before my eyes
pass by me and go

it was sometime in december
but i can't remember

and i will always know
the claire de lune
of life through cold windows
on winter afternoons

and all this time,
i've tried not to keep to myself
but loneliness is the only nice
feeling i've ever felt

and i still remember
saturdays in december
when i chased the geese
from the lake to the breast

from the west to the east
they flew over the trees

and old friends have flown
like words with wings
but the bumble bee died
with just one last sting

i held my foot and i cried
and i ran back outside

and i will always know
l'apres-midi d'un faune
with the moon in the snow
and winters spent alone

and all this time,
i've tried not to keep to myself
but loneliness was the only nice
feeling i've ever felt

i hear the sound of my name
in the red light that bends and flows
when winter rain
rolls down bus windows

it wasn't fair
but mom and dad weren't there

now west wind blow on this saturday morning
and don't ever let tomorrow know
that it never stops storming

i'm one child too many,
no one needs any

and it's sometime in december
but i won't remember
