Track Name: last night
last night
last night

i know a man
who sailed around,
the world
but for another chance to live
when your away,
drop me a line,
i'll know
everythings fine,
and your ok...

last night
somebody spoke,
and i went into a dream
last night
everything's rosey,
and nothing's as bad as it seems

i know a man,
who lost his way,
back home
all for another chance to live
he went away,
dropped me a line,
to say
everythings fine and he's ok

last night
somebody spoke,
and i went into a dream
last night
everything's rosey,
and nothing's as bad as it seems

last night
somebody spoke,
and i went into a dream
last night
everything's rosey,
and nothing's as bad as it seems
Track Name: another day
another day
nothing ever
turns out
quite the way
i hoped that
it would be
then there was you
and all that shit
they put you through
that's when you
fell for me...

nothing matters,
nothing really matters
much to me
my thoughts were scattered,
then there you go
making sense of me

another way
you and i will never
be the same
it dosen't seem so bad
if that were true
maybe i would fall in love with you
it dosen't seem so bad

nothing matters,
nothing really matters
much to me
my thoughts were scattered,
then there you go
making sense of me

what can i say?
you're charming in the most peculiar way
it dosen't seem so bad
if that were true
maybe i would fall in love with you
...it dosen't seem so bad
Track Name: lee harvey oswald
another lonely night,
in the shadows of LA
i don't know how i feel,
much less what to say...
if it wern't for the sunshine
i would leave today
i'd pack my bags, and head back
east
to the things i threw away...

i feel so invisable,
today
are there any ghosts in LA
like a plane...
circling, circling, circling...
now it's time to land

here i go now once again...
i've turned my back on all my
friends...
...where have you been...
tonight,
my friend

i feel, so invincible
Today,
Maybe there's a chance i might
stay
like a plane...
circling, circling, circling...
now it's time to land

here i go now once again...
i've turned my back on all my
friends...
...where have you been...
tonight,
my friend
Track Name: breathe
it's a sad, sad way
to be
me looking at you,
you looking at me
somethings going on,
this feeling's just too strong

turn it off.
before you have to smile again,
before you finally understand,
just what we're talking about,
and where we go from here.

turn it off.
before you know what's good for
you,
before you finally see things thru,
you'll know what i'm talking about,
when you start to breathe...

it was a sad, sad day
when you went...away.
now that your gone,
maybe we'll get along

turn it off.
before you have to smile again,
before you finally find a friend,
someons you can talk about,
when he's not around

turn it off.
before you know what's good for
you,
before you finally see things thru,
you'll know what i'm talking about,
when you start to breathe...

i'll hold my breath till i turn blue,
i'll say i'm doing it for you,
i'll hold my breath,
so i don't have to...
breathe

turn it off.
before you have to smile again,
before you finally understand,
just what i'm talking about,
and where i'm coming from.

turn it off.
before you know what's good for
you,
before you finally see things thru,
you'll know what i'm talking about,
when you start to breathe...

doing it, for you...
