THE POCKET KNIFE
Please don't make my wedding dressI'm too young to marry yetCan you see my pocket knife?You can't make me be a wifeHow the world just turns & turnsHow does anybody learn?Mummy, put your needle downHow did you feel when you were young?Cos I feel like I've just been bornEven though I'm getting onHow the world slips by so fastHow does anybody last?As the world keeps comingAnd the bees keep hummingAnd I'll keep runningFlowers I can do withoutI don't wanna be tied downWhite material will stainMy pocket knife's gotta shiny bladeI'm not trying to cause a fussI just wanna make my own fuck-upsI'm not trying to break your heartI'm just trying not to fall apart

THE SLOW DRUG
Blue now is the colourLove the drug I'm needingGot to keep this feelingWith the headlights burningWe're looking up for somethingAnswers on the ceilingWatching out the windowsWatch the way the wind blowsSoon it will be morningStill the question lingersI twist it round my fingersCould you be my calling?See this winged boy fallingFalling out of somethingHits the drug I'm needingArrows that he's turningNeed to keep this feelingSlow drug in the morningWith the headlights burningLooking up for somethingSomething that we're needingStill the question lingersI twist it round my fingersCould you be my calling?
NO CHILD OF MINE
I have no time for hate or loveHey child, you're so full of woeI have no time for hate or lyingHey child, you're no child of mine
CAT ON THE WALL
I heard our song on the radioIt wasn't long before I think of youCan't get the sound outta my headDon't look now, it's coming round againI saved your voice from the telephoneI play it back on the message machineIt really sounds like you're having funI'm going out into the midday sunCome night, I'm gonna step outsideTake a walk, I'm gonna clear my mindThe radio, still playing our songYou got me jumping like a cat on the wallTurn up the radioThey play the radio in my dreamsTakes me back to when I was 17Dancing in circles on the kitchen floorI'll play this song 'til I can't take anymore

Oh dear sweet mamaI'm not feeling wellCan I step outFor a little while?But I go missingI steal awayAnd I go kissingIn the alleywayAll I want to doAnd all I want to grow up to beIs all caught up with youLook what you're doing to meOh dearest young manTeach me sweetheartHow to love youI'm a clever girlYou've got me lyingYou've got me leaving homeYou've got me cryingWhen I'm aloneWhen I'm not with you my dreams are so very darkWhen I'm not with you I dream of my hair falling outWhen I'm not with you I walk dark tunnels of my heartWhen I'm not with you everything comes apartWhen I was youngerI spent my daysWondering to whomI was supposed to pray...It's you...
THE DESPERATE KINGDOM OF LOVE
Oh love, you were a sickly childAnd how the wind knocked you downPut on your spurs, swagger aroundIn the desperate kingdom of loveHoly water cannot help you nowYour mysterious eyes cannot help youSelling your reason will not bring you throughThe desperate kingdom of loveThere's another who looks from behind your eyesI learn from you how to hideFrom the desperate kingdom of loveAt the end of this burning worldYou'll stand proud, face upheldAnd I'll follow you, into Heaven or HellAnd I'll become, as a girlIn the desperate kingdom of love
THE DARKER DAYS OF ME & HIM
Promises, promisesI'm feeling burnedYou taught me a lessonI didn't want to learnWhy did I come here?Please tell me againWhy did you ask me?Don't say you forgetI long for, I long forI long for my homeI long for a land whereNo man was ever knownWith no neurosisNo psychosisNo psychoanalysisAnd no sadnessI'll pick up the pieces,I'll carry on somehowTape the broken parts togetherAnd limp this love aroundLimp this love around
