Track Name: Mulberry
Mulberry Mulberry
I'm as blind as a man could be
Like I didn't notice all the scars on your face

You're looking at me and what I bring
You might question my sanity
And my intentions when unexpected things take place

Not the kind of notions
That foundations were based on
But it might work for you and me
Maybe in the next life
We might make it together
If only for a moment
We could see

Frames roll past of the past
You start making connection between
All the excitement, what it might've meant, and what it could mean

I plead to you with persistence
Still you think I'm playing a game
First you face me, then erase me, oh what can I say

Not the kind of notions
That foundations were based on
But it might work for you and me
Maybe in the next life
We might make it together
If only for a moment
We could see
Oh Mulberry

Mulberry there's a picture
that's hanging in front of me
there's a picture of you in front of me

Don't you take it, don't you take it
don't you take it away from me
Mulberry Mulberry Mulberry

Everything's dependent
On the time and the weather
Or maybe it's the pressure undersea
Maybe in the next life
We might make it together
If only for a moment
We could see
Oh Mulberry
Track Name: Short Stay
It gets so hectic switching electric
Plugging in after dark
She comes in phases at fifteen paces
She tastes like pineapple bark
And she's got a suite at the Mark
And she's trashing it baby

So many people wait for the sequel
Of movies never been made
So many movies they get the green light
And they get cut by the blade
And the people they wait and they wait
The people they wait and they...

Back to the story so full of glory
It's got an ending like wow
It's got reverses shifts in perception
Don't it feel so here and now?
Don't it feel so here and now?
Don't it feel so...?

You want to reach her think you can teach her
All that she'd never explore
She's down at Marni uptown at Barneys
She don't get past the first floor

I'm in the BX listening to T-Rex
You know that everyone digs
She's in the BK she's at the short stay
She's leaving soon for that rig

She'll be working that offshore rig
You know she got that talk show gig

Strut
She strut
And me I'm checking out
Track Name: Just Yet
I beat the traffic once again
Kept the search up for my best friend
I tried to skip the stoplights
But every last one's blinking red

I was running and cheating
And hiding out in Memphis til
The clock strikes eleven
By midnight halfway to Brazil

And every day surprises
wondering what page is next

But I'll sit up on this cross
No I don't mind letting you be the boss
Cause I ain't done feeling guilty just yet

Salt dripping out of my face
Gets me every time and place
I never thought that I needed a brace
Until the legs can't be stood on

And all that your foot's on
Turned into a pile to
Be swept up and put upon
All because i can't tell the truth

And September's coming soon
That means another temporary move

So I'll pack up my two bags
I'm sure there's things that I might forget
But I ain't giving up trying just yet

Blizzard rolled in yesterday
A stop-motion anime
Was like dropping a great white shark
on the Great White Way

It was nine inches of silences
Gets so hard to shovel that stuff
A good dose of violences
The kind that puts your guard right back up

When everyday there's trouble
Living a losing bet

But I'll sit out in this cold
If you look close see I'm not alone
Cause I ain't done holding on to you just yet
No I ain't done holding on to you just yet
Track Name: What I Need
There's what you want
and what I need
and those two things
Ain't gonna ever meet

When you're down in the sand
I'll be up in the stars
You try to take my hand
Best put down your arms

And I can't wait til the next leap year
My sympathies are tied up elsewhere
I don't need a fortune teller to read my future
Cause no one else is gonna touch me
the way that you used to
Sha la la la
Sha la la la

A million voices tell me to disappear
And memories get piled up much too near
So tell me what am I to do
with this tattoo of your name
When everything else is different
But my heart's unchanged
Sha la la
Sha la la

There's what you want
and what I need
those two things
gonna never meet
No, no, no...
Track Name: Maybe Someday
Maybe someday we'll drink from the same cup again
And stay up all night just like we did way back when
we'll drink from the same cup
saying we never gave up
On each other
And we'll toast the brothers

Maybe someday our hearts are gonna be unstained
Go back to a time when kisses felt untrained
We'll grab our favorite girl
Say there's no one in this world'
But each other
And we'll toast the lovers

If only you missed me
I wouldn't need whiskey
I'd be just as drunk as I need

I wouldn't seek solace
in everything lawless
I'd follow wherever you'd lead

So I beg
and I plead
and I order another

Maybe someday we'll meet the good Lord in the flesh
And He'll give us that old speech about father knows best
But if He fail to mention
You should turn some attention
To another
And we drink to the mothers
Track Name: Room 1009
Left a message at the front desk I guess it didn't get through
Heard your temperature's falling I'm calling trying to get to you
You spend too much time with the old crowd you know you're just getting used
But just because you got nothing to win don't mean there's not a lot to lose

With your horsefeathers and your shiny chin
Got to get it together, people's patience wearing thin

There's been a lot of complaints about Room 1009
Sister won't you draw back the curtain, open up those blinds
You can't spend the rest of your life behind a Do Not Disturb sign
It's high time you check yourself out of Room 1009

Ten years we chased the depths we took lives and liberties
And we always carried that big set of jailer keys
We climbed the highest mountains to let out a scream
But underneath there was a sad sad song always whistling through the breeze

It's crying now for the tickets, screaming you pull me down
You say you don't shoot horses but where's your mustang now

There's been a lot of complaints about Room 1009
Sister won't you draw back the curtain, open up those blinds
You can't spend the rest of your life behind a Do Not Disturb sign
High time you check yourself out of Room 1009

And I know my words once heard might not hold a lot of sway
And I know the answer ain't coming on some bright sunny day
I know you get down with the weather, sitting stuck in LA
But there's a choir singing for you and they're not gonna go away
They're singing

About New York City up on concrete heels
You think you lost it forever I think I how you feel

There's been a lot of complaints about Room 1009
Sister won't you draw back the curtain, open up those blinds
You can't spend the rest of your life behind a Do Not Disturb sign
It's high time you check yourself out of Room 1009
Track Name: You Better Leave Room
I knew I'd see you out randomly walking
Just didn't think it'd be quite so soon
But you never know just what the day brings
So you better leave room

I always longed for a life in the gutter
Took a few trips to the moon
I filled villas up with compost and clutter
Until I ran out of rooms

You know it all felt nice living this life
where the clock don't move with the light
But you're no facing what's in your basement
Space is gonna get so tight
And mistakes that you made
Keep you tossing and turning all night

A couple of days but it feels like it's ages
You get lonely rages each afternoon
Dust building up in obvious places
Can't even look at a broom

So fill your insides up with the darkness
You'll learn to live with the gloom
But love's gonna come into your heart again
So you better leave room
Yeah love's gonna come into your heart again
So you better leave room
Love's gonna come into your heart again
So you better leave room
Track Name: Better Than Good
In the spring when flower's blooming
I clean my room and meet you out
Bought you some chocolate
Because I know you wanted
Something sweet, something now
And it'll be good so good so better than good

And in the summer when it's sticky
that yellow sun beats up above
And the roof is overheating
With the sound of our love
And it'll be good so good so better than good

So tell me baby what went wrong
Why's it been so long
I thought I played your favorite songs
And it was so good

So when the weather calls for sweater
I'll you that coat to keep you warm
And if the city gets too sketchy
We'll go rock out on the farm
And it'll be good so good so better than good
And it'll be good so good so better than good

In the rain, the sleet and snow
When it's hot and sweaty
Babe I want you to know:

I'm a man for all seasons
From below and above
You want love I got a million reasons
Why I fit you like a glove

100 degrees...that don't phase me
The humidity shakes right off of me
Track Name: Turn Yourself Over
It wasn't the fate you were asking for now
But it came to you like 1-2-3
I've no idea what we're wearing these masks for
Now we know the definition of maturity

Turn yourself over to midnight
I know a place that we could be
There ain't no mistakes
Ain't no bright lights
Turn yourself over to me

Are you overstuffed or just over extended?
Maybe you're looking to find a little twist of lime
I'd pay you some mind if I could only pay attention
But we all gotta get loose sometimes

Bankers bellying up to the bar
They think they'll part the sea with their credit card
But I know a place where the disco ball is glowing
And all the glasses are overflowing

Turn yourself over to midnight
I know a place that we could be
There ain't no mistakes
Ain't no bright lights
Turn yourself over to me

Turn yourself over to midnight
There is a place that we could be
There ain't no mistakes
Ain't no bright lights
Turn yourself over to me
Turn yourself over
Pretty soon it's all gonna be over
Track Name: Triple Letter
You think that I'm a qat
girl I think that you're a real big qi

You play that triple letter
You better have the zee zee zee

You kick me off the bus
Put an x through my xu and xi

I hope you save a letter for me
Maybe hook me something special
Better than the V

Cuz I've been working all night
I've been working all night

All those words must've
helped you on the SAT

You can play what you want
You know I got the ING

You're such a Jersey girl
but you know what you mean to me

I hope you save a letter for me
Maybe hook me up something
Better than the V

Cuz I've been working all night
I've been working all night

You say it's just a game
But you're quick to claim victory

You're calling my name
When you put out an APB

You're such a Jersey girl
But you could make it up in NYC

Baby please save a letter for me
Hook me up with something special
Better than the V

Cuz I been working all night
And I will work all morning
Track Name: You Do It Again
You fell just like a dancer at the end of the night
i gave you so much cancer you couldn't help but die

And you do it you do it you do it again
You do it you do it you do it again
You do it you do it you do it again
To my heart
Gonna make it start

So many answers lie with the wind
You find yourself stuck inside the house again

And you do it you do it you do it again
You do it you do it you do it again
You do it you do it you do it again
To my heart
Gonna make it start

Then you push me away
Out in the dark
There ain't way no way
That I could not fall apart

So go on abandon my last name
Throw out the painting, send me a bill for the frame

And you do it you do it you do it again
You do it you do it you do it again
You do it you do it you do it again
To my heart
Gonna make it start

Then you push me away
Out in the dark
There ain't way no way
That I could not fall apart

There ain't way no way
That I could not fall apart
