How Do You Like My Earrings? All my friends are in love All my friends are in love They’ve been talking about her They’ve been trying to find her All my friends are in love I’m only waiting for the train Sorry for such a long delay Maybe she could be the one When she’s drunk, she’s so much fun They’ve been thinking about her – if she’s like no other Maybe she could be the one I’m only standing by the road Give me a sign that I can go How do you like my earrings? They’re from my boyfriend’s broken jaw These screws used to keep it together He doesn’t need them anymore How do you like my earrings? They’re heavy metal, I am sure The doctor said he’d be okay I wanna let my feelings show All my friends are away In a better place to stay Guess I know the reason why They didn’t say goodbye They are all out of reach I feel like going for a swim I wish we lived beside the sea How do you like my earrings? They’re from my boyfriend’s broken jaw These screws used to keep it together He doesn’t need them anymore How do you like my earrings? They’re heavy metal, I am sure The doctor said he’d be okay I wanna let my feelings show

Changing Trains I left the love of my life and my friends I left the one I love, she’ll never see me again Maybe it’s just a start of something new and better Maybe I made a mistake I’m sitting in your chair It’s such a different feeling When you are not there Sitting in your chair To see the world with your eyes With your eyes She told me she could take it if I need a break She said we could meet in a year from now She said, “Don’t give it up, one day you could be sorry,” I said, “Don’t you worry ‘cause I’ll be alright,” I will be alright But maybe she was right I’m changing trains, changing trains I left the love of my life and all my friends I’m changing trains, changing trains For me the story never ends Oooh, yeah, yeah... Oooh, ooh... For the first time there is no one you can lean on When you go back to your hometown When you dream on There’s a new name on your doorbell Such a strange sound And the place where you went to school Yeah, it’s been torn down

Dear Jack & Stacey This could be the day We may find ourselves in a different century Stay, I’ll take you Thirty-five thousand Sunday afternoons back Dear Jack, it’s been a long long time Since we’ve heard from each other And you’re not writing back You will see I’m like you I have a long list of friends You’re trying hard to keep in touch But you lose them in the end You will see I’m like you I have the memories from the past I’m trying to keep you in my mind But the memory wouldn’t last Stacey, Stacey, Stacey said you’d gone away Maybe you are in a better place to stay Stacey, oh Stacey, Stacey said that it’s okay Stacey, help me! Help me find the way! This could be the day We may meet again There are things that you have to say I’ll make you feel like nothing had changed I’ll take you right back Dear Jack, it’s been a long long time Since we’ve heard from each other And you’re not writing back Stacey, Stacey, Stacey said you’d gone away Maybe you are in a better place to stay Stacey, oh Stacey, Stacey said that it’s okay Stacey, help me! Help me find the way! Oh, Stacey! Oh, Stacey! Oh, Stacey! Oh, Stacey!

Tiger in Your Heart The day we met was cold – winter You said you were the icy queen I thought I saw a wild tiger Nobody else could see There’s a tiger in your heart! In you! No matter what you say No matter what you do In the trees, in the wind In the tide and the waves In the salt on my skin In the moment I wake In the things that you wear In the air, in your hair In the snow and the rain You’ll be there, you’ll be there Oh, there’s a tiger I thought it was a dream, really! The moment you came and went Didn’t even know, did I? If I would ever see you again There’s a tiger in your heart! In you! No matter what you say No matter what you do In the trees and the wind In the tide and the waves In the salt on my skin In the moment I wake In the things that you wear In the air, in your hair In the snow and the rain You’ll be there, you’ll be there Oh, there’s a tiger Oh, there’s a tiger Oh, tiger! Oh, come home to me

Ah, Coco! You take my clothes off And cool my cheeks with your cold nose I lay me down with my eyes closed Ah, Coco! I take your clothes off And we just sit on the carpet And watch each other in slow-mo We watch each other in slow-mo We watch each other in slow-mo AH, COCO! YOU COULD SAVE MY SOUL, JUST DON'T GO! AH, COCO! "IT'S ONLY SIXTY DAYS," SHE SAID SO AH, COCO! SOMETIMES IT FEELS SO STRANGE ALL ALONE AH, COCO! Ah, Coco! You take my clothes off I didn't know I was in heaven I didn't know heaven was so soft Ah, Coco! I take your clothes off And we both stare at the ceiling I don't understand why you're going I don't understand why you're leaving I don't understand why you're leaving AH, COCO! YOU COULD SAVE MY SOUL, JUST DON'T GO! AH, COCO! "IT'S ONLY SIXTY DAYS," SHE SAID SO AH, COCO! SOMETIMES IT FEELS SO STRANGE ALL ALONE AH, COCO! AH, COCO! YOU COULD SAVE MY SOUL, JUST DON'T GO!

Too Many Knives The place is always empty Until the afternoon I came home too soon I came home too soon I wonder if it’s raining ‘Cause my hair is wet How could I forget? How could I forget? There’s too many knives in the kitchen There’s too many knives in the kitchen There’s too many knives in the kitchen I’m hungry for love I’m hungry for love I’m wasting my time in the kitchen With you on my mind in the kitchen There’s too many knives in the kitchen I’m hungry for love I’m hungry for love I take all my clothes off Leave them by the door And I miss you so And I miss you so There’s too many knives in the kitchen There’s too many knives in the kitchen There’s too many knives in the kitchen I’m hungry for love I’m hungry for love I’m wasting my time in the kitchen With you on my mind in the kitchen There’s too many knives in the kitchen I’m hungry for love I’m hungry for love Hungry for love, ah!

Something New The ground feels like a mirror I am there and you’re there too The ground feels like a mirror made of glass And we’re gonna fall through Tell me what you’re gonna do Tell me what you’re gonna do Tell me what you’re gonna do Tell me what you’re gonna do We move on the surface When it rains everything’s smooth No one is alone here – trees have roots And I have you There is nothing we can lose There is nothing we can lose There is nothing we can lose There is nothing we can lose You will be me and I, I will be you We’ll be a part of something new Don’t be afraid ‘cause love, love never dies When it’s too late I’ll just close my eyes I just close my eyes The ground feels like a mirror And the sun, the sun will shine twice Don’t look down on me now You will see the birds in the sky I’ll be on the other side I’ll be on the other side I’ll be on the other side I’ll be on the other side You will be me and I, I will be you We’ll be a part of something new Don’t be afraid ‘cause love, love never dies When it’s too late I’ll just close my eyes Ah, yeah, now you know Ah, yeah, now you know everything Ah, yeah, you know Ah, yeah, you know how I feel

Someone With a Slow Heartbeat I think I’ve found someone Someone with all the answers So I’d better be careful About the things I will ask her I think I’ve found someone Someone I’ve always dreamed of I still can’t believe it Even when I am with her Ooh, she’s drawing something on my hand What will happen next Nobody knows All my dreams have come true And I’m lost What will happen next No one can say All my dreams are coming true today When you find someone Someone who’ll make you happy She can give you the answers But don’t ask her about me Once I found someone Someone with a slow heartbeat It will never stop beating She said, “That’s very unlikely,” What will happen next Nobody knows All my dreams have come true And I’m lost What will happen next No one can say All my dreams are coming true today What will happen next Nobody knows All my dreams have come true And I’m lost What will happen next No one can say All my dreams are coming true today Today

Stuck in the Mud What’s that thing in your eyes I cannot see Every time you come by And sleep with me? I wonder if you feel it too When I’m with you What if you don’t If you don’t and I still do? Oooh, I’m stuck in the mud Oooh, I’m stuck in the mud with you What’s that thing on your mind You want to say? In my bed everywhere Your long blond hair When you go Leave it all the way it is Don’t wash the plate It’s too late Don’t change the sheets Oooh, I’m stuck in the mud Oooh, I’m stuck in the mud with you Aaah, won’t you help me out? I can’t get away Ooh, I’ve been stuck so deep in the mud Since you walked away I’ve been stuck in the mud In the mud I’ve been stuck in the mud In the mud I’ve been stuck in the mud In the mud I’ve been stuck in the mud In the mud Maybe I will always be here Will I always? Maybe I will Maybe I will always be here Maybe I will always be here Maybe I will always be here Maybe I will always be here Maybe I’ll be here forever Maybe I’ll be here forever

Institutions of the World If they tell you not to go If the tell you not to stay If you say that you don’t know They won’t help you out for sure There are questions in the air There’s confusion and despair Is this building going to fall? There are cracks in every wall You just stand there at the door You hear whispers in the room You don’t know what you’ve come here for Don’t know what you’re going to do Institutions of the world I’m so tired of this game We’ve been playing for so long And I’m losing all the way Institutions of the world Won’t you let me get some rest I’ve been trying pretty hard I’ve been trying to do my best You will have to wait for now Take a seat there on the floor “We’ll be open in a while,” Says the sign stuck on the door There’s a pile of empty forms Scattered pages in the dust You can see there’s something wrong Which reminds you of the past Someone’s taken all the chairs So as not to take the risk There’s the question in the air: “What’s the point in all of this?” Institutions of the world I’m so tired of this game We’ve been playing for so long And I’m losing all the way Institutions of the world Won’t you let me get some rest I’ve been trying pretty hard I’ve been trying to do my best Institutions of the world I’m so tired of this game We’ve been playing for so long And I’m losing all the way Institutions of the world Won’t you let me get some rest I’ve been trying pretty hard I’m so lonely I’m so lonely I’m so lonely I’m so lonely I’m so lonely I’m so lonely I’m so lonely I’m so lonely

45 Days in Tokyo I wanna be, I wanna be I wanna be with you I wanna stay for forty-five days For forty-five days in Tokyo Don’t ask me why I wanna fly over the sea You will see, you will see I wanna go, I wanna go I wanna go with you I wanna leave all of the past behind Why don’t you leave your past behind? Give me a sign When you have made up your mind Take your time, take your time What’s the time now in Tokyo? I don’t know, let me guess I still believe we can work it out If I look east and you look west Are you there? Calling Tokyo... Or am I talking to myself? Who’d have thought you’d forget it all? We were fine when you left Oh, forty-five days in Tokyo! I’m still in love, ah! +886 917 401 779 86 791 I wanna know, I wanna know I need to know the truth Could you be mine? Will you decide After forty-five days in Tokyo? Where are you now? Don’t leave me high and dry Tell me why, tell me why... What’s the time now in Tokyo? I don’t know, let me guess I still believe we can work it out If I look east and you look west Are you there? Calling Tokyo... Or am I talking to myself? Who’d have thought you’d forget it all? We were fine when you left When you left
