Track Name: Cosmic Blue
All the fault lines in the sea
All your landslides that bury me
In everything I ever will do

Cosmic Blue (x4)

All those letters you’re writing home
Touch my fingers and turn to stone
Forever wonderin’ who I’m listening to

Cosmic Blue (x4)

Summertime, and the livin’ is easy all around
Wintertime, you’re hiding underground
In a private place, from the hurting race

In a vision, in a dream
Something rising up from the sea
Dark descending now, just travelling through

Cosmic Blue (x8)
Track Name: Tell Me
You don’t look how I used to know
Your cigarette mouth, your caffeine soul
Your trademark sneer, your manners vile
I hardly recognised you when you smiled

Tell me, what happened to my friend
Tell me, whose life you’re living in
Tell me, how to, where to begin
Tell me

You look like how I used to feel
Every roving eye a winning deal
Every rolling dice your lucky break
Ah, every loving wife was yours to take

So tell me, just who I have to know
Tell me, how could I let her go
Tell me, or tell me it ain’t so
Tell me

Sing it, sister!

You look like someone I once knew
Used to keep big bank notes in his shoe
Used to smear your name all over town
Only took some time to bring me down

So tell me, what kind of world we’re living in
Tell me, where losers turn to win
Tell me, am I the joke they sing
Tell me

Tell me now, I gotta know
Track Name: Morning Is Fine
Donna, tell me if you wanna
Share your love with me
Don’t keep it in your corner
Winking don’t tell me what you’re thinking
Do you dream of me?
“Don’t know, ask me tomorrow”

At night I’m crying in my sleeves
Who let that sun get out?
The morning is fine
Keep the light on in your mind

Longing, fretting and yearning
You’re the searching kind
Am I a find worth keeping?
But if that story ends
We might still be friends
“Don’t know, don’t think I’d wanna”

And now I’m crawling on my knees
Who let that feeling out?
The morning is fine
Keep the light on in your mind

Darling, the morning is fine
Track Name: Life Overboard
Tombstones and rhinestones
Treasure on the mark
Sun drums on my sails
Winds whip my mast
And the cannons fire away
Loading all day
I won’t be land hoeing
Till fears at bay from S.S. Sorrow

I know what they’ll say, it’s my fault now
Yes that’s what they say
I know what they say
That when your life is slipping overboard, “pray for me now”

See you peeping when you’re sleeping
Hoarding with one good eye
I only miss you when
You’re a thousand miles
May the waves crash down, amen
Carrying the sick and blind
‘Cause no good can come of all this
Leaving them behind for endless oceans

I know what they’ll say, it’s my fault now
Yes that’s what they say
I know what they say
That when your life is slipping overboard, “pray for me now”

If you’re leaving tomorrow
Away with your sorrows
You’re leaving a good thing behind
No, no, I don’t know
How far I will go
As far as the wind stays behind
Track Name: Life Goes On
One tattered shoe and a box full of roses
How does he make you happy?
Is it inside his trousers?
It must be you: our love could never die
I try and read it in your face
The skin is gone
The waste is set in card and stone
I shoot my mouth off
I watch it burn

‘Cause life goes on, I heard the man explain
Life goes on, for you to wallow in your pain

The day is long, the night time too
She says she’s having problems
She says, “It’s not me, it’s you”
But I saw you kiss him
Beneath those stairs
You thought I was out shopping
The store was closed!
Excuse the hand that breaks my bones
I shoot my mouth off
I’ll never learn

That life goes on, I heard the man explain
Life goes on, for you to wallow in your pain

Say it’s not true!
Everything is broken
Stride in on your white horse
Thinkin’, baby, that it’s Trojan
Peel back the hurt
Try and fill it with holes
Try and rekindle all your faith
In her sweet song

‘Cause life goes on, I heard the man explain
Life goes on, for you to wallow in your pain
Life goes on
Hey, a lot goes on, babe, beyond my detection
I’ve been loose with my love and affection
A phony grin, and a smile that was meant for three
Track Name: Even Bad Love's Hard To Find
No way, no how
No underside
Bell rings, next bout
Still undecided

You won’t let, you won’t let me rise above
You won’t let, you don’t get it my one
Even bad love’s hard to find

Stay here a little while
These things I’ll find
By now you’re down
Too late to fight it

You won’t let, you won’t let me rise above
You won’t let, you don’t get it, my one
Even bad love’s hard to find

And at night all the dark things rise
Grabs your heart, presses your lungs
As I watch horizons bend
For hours and hours, lonely for a friend

No way, no how
No underside
I’m in, I’m out
I’m in decline

You won’t let, you won’t let me rise above
You won’t let, you don’t get it my one
Even bad love’s hard to find
