Track Name: Promise and Hope
I wonder
If the clouds in my sky were to disappear
Would I smile or just turn my head?
Let myself feel more alive than dead?
I wonder
If I found myself sitting across from you
Would I say how it felt that day?
Or just turn my head and walk away?

I wonder just why I had such high hopes for you
But were my hopes too steep for you?
All your promise was just one more promise you couldn’t keep

We drifted
Together like hands on a ticking clock
Destined to touch and then depart
The center holds then things fall apart
When we drifted
Away you said it was no one’s fault
“Just cause it’s gone doesn’t mean it’s dead”
I just smiled and turned my head
When I drift back

I remember why I had such high hopes for you
But were my hopes too steep for you?
All your promise was just one more promise you couldn’t keep

I had such high hopes for you
But were my hopes too steep
Such high hopes for you
All your promise was just one more promise you couldn’t keep
Track Name: Vintage
Ooooh, darlin’

When this ol’ world is bothering us
And the damn thing won’t let us move
I say ‘oooh, darling,’ drop that needle deep into that groove
And let four on the floor in common time
Send those shivers up and down my spine

So don’t despair, my darlin’,
When it feels like we’re wearing thin
I’ll pour you a sloe gin, and we’ll escape at 45 RPM
Cause why drown in the noise when we can drown it out?
Why twist in the wind when we can twist and shout?

The wire’s hummin’ Everyone wants somethin’ from us
But not tonight, dear, tell them not tonight, dear
The toil and drudge Will still be there for us to trudge through
But not tonight, dear, tell them not tonight, dear
The times are changin’ Everything is rearrangin’
But not tonight, dear, tell them not tonight, dear

We’ll close the door, and draw the blinds low
And disappear behind a wall of sound
And if the taxman comes calling, we’ll be nowhere to be found
And as the bass line walks, and the guitar talks
We’ll spin like vinyl and trot like a fox

Chorus

When this ol’ world is bothering us
And the damn thing won’t let us move
I say ‘oooh, darling,’ drop that needle deep into that groove
And let four on the floor in common time
Send those shivers up and down my spine

Chorus

The wire’s hummin’ Everyone wants somethin’ from us
But not tonight, dear, tell them not tonight, dear
The sturm-and-drang Will still be going strong tomorrow
But not tonight, dear, tell them not tonight, dear
No, not tonight, tell them not tonight...
The wire’s hummin’ Everyone wants somethin’ from us
But not tonight, dear, tell them not tonight, dear
