Track Name: I'll Keep It With Mine
I’LL KEEP IT WITH MINE

Can you keep a secret?
I’ve been so confused
Tonight I can’t take it
I’m still missing you
I’m locked in a circle
With jokers and fools
I’ve seen in your eyes
You’re saying goodbye
I’ll keep it with mine

I deny in the day what
I may not at night
So I fell down praying
When you were sayin’ goodbye
Your clothes on the floor
Your back to the door
If you lose the time
Baby don’t mind
I’ll keep it with mine

Bridge:
Something more than you
Came out of a deeper blue
What I found in your eyes
I lost in my smile

So can you keep a secret?
What’s really mine
No please don’t reveal it
How I couldn’t stop crying
Shipwrecks were waiting
The scary kind
Your love has gone cold
That happens sometimes
I’ll keep it with mine
Your love has gone cold
That happens sometimes
I’ll keep it with mine
Track Name: Turn Your Back
TURN YOUR BACK

Sitting in bed with your teddy bear yeah
Your Daddy don’t see when you’re plucking hairs now
Make a little home out of thorny crowns
There is no you put the mirror down

Hey you turn your back now
No-one beats the rap now

Stop making love not war
But maybe love’s responsible
Somebody left my door ajar
I think I saw a terrorist in my backyard

Hey you turn your back now
No-one beats the rap now

You’re never gonna be like the way you were now
You’re never gonna be like the way you were now
You’re never gonna be like the way you were now
You’re never gonna be like the way you were now

Hey you turn your back now
No-one beats the rap now

Hey there honey do you need a ride
I got no fuel but I need a bride
I take that back I’d better go
I’m gonna need a lighter load

Hey you turn your back now
No-one beats the rap now
Track Name: Lover
LOVER

There’s so much here to worry about
The wax is cold the candles out
I’m gonna have to hide your picture
Somewhere on the street I’m homeless senseless
Nothing on my feet I’m trapped by fences
I’m worried about my future

Lover!
Lover!

One last time, right now tonight
I just want to feel alright inside
I can’t believe I’m asking
You know when you’re hopeless I know you know this
I saw you bite the sheet
I’m worried about my future

Lover! I’ve seen you running
Lover! I’ve seen you hiding

You’re gonna be the wild party
I’m only the aftermath
I’d steal for you or I’d be violent
My true intention I never could hide it

Lover! I know you’re lying
Lover! I’ve seen you running
Track Name: Baby Blue
BABY BLUE

Hazel eyes led me as I walked through the door
I’d been told I’d had enough but I wanted more
Louie Malle cased me as I entered the room
And a dancer she danced as I whistled her a tune

This was a place appropriately named crime
The owner she told me they do these kinda things all the time
I was introduced to a woman named Precious
She told me this place can get you down but the food in delicious

I’m in love with Baby Blue
If you saw her you’d love her too
She may not be a pretty as you
But she’s my Baby Blue

I followed her to a room where woman danced in pairs
She smiled and left standing at the foot of the stair
I went up to find Hope waiting in the hall
And Hope didn’t see me coming at all

I’m in love with Baby Blue
If you were her I’d love you too
She may not be a pretty as you
But she’s my Baby Blue

She asked me what I’d do if all else failed
I said I want to know her thoughts the rest are details
She said well you must have been ill-advised
Then she smiled in a way I recognized

I’m in love with Baby Blue
If you were her I’d love you too
She may not be a witty as you
But she’s my Baby Blue
Track Name: Army Of Women (for a soldier)
ARMY OF WOMAN

I've changed my mind
I just don’t wanna know
It’ll be alright
If for days you don’t come home
Come home

If you’re all fucked up
Even always high on drugs
I’ll be your loving cup
Even if you’re not in love

I wanna be with ya

I take no part
In how I’m a-felling
You won’t have to lie to me sweetheart
Come home

And at your sexual peak
On nights when you cannot sleep
When you're with another man
Or fighting the Taliban

I wanna be with ya
