RAIN (Reworked Version) 

(Lauren & Paul Waaktaar-Savoy)

 

Rain... rain... comes down

Empty streets

And I'm falling

Through the trees

And they're calling

Out for rain...

Rain... and it's plain to see

Rain... what it does to me

Yeah, rain... rain... falls down

Endlessly, here I'm falling

Through the trees

And they're calling out

For rain...

Rain... what is rain

Rain... is rain

Rain... is God's own Lydocaine

Rain... is good

That's understood

Rain...

Hmmm

Rain... and it's plain to see

Rain... what it does to me

Yeah, rain... rain... falls down

Endlessly, here I'm falling

Through the trees

And they're calling out

For rain...

Rain...

Rain...

Rain...

Rain...

Rain...

Rain...

Rain...

 


 
KARMA BOOMERANG 
(Lauren & Paul Waaktaar-Savoy)
 
* Note: The promo single version of the song is the same as the album version.
 
 
Let's go down and see the man
Throw some coins in the Karma Boomerang
We're going to Grey Dog
Somewhere down on Carmine street
Throw flowers in the air
And slowly come awake
Let's go down and see the man
Throw some coins in the Karma Boomerang
Above us drunken birds
News filled with bloody murders
Skylines and broken words
You take your crystal pill
You get an instant thrill
You get your cup refilled and slowly come away
Let's go down and see the man
Throw some coins in the Karma Boomerang
Is this the year that we will turn it on it's side,
And lead a stationary life
Let's go down and see the man
Throw some coins in the Karma Boomerang
Karma Boomerang
Karma is a boomerang

Karma Boomerang

Karma is a boomerang

Karma Boomerang

Karma is a boomerang

Karma Boomerang

Karma is a boomerang

Karma Boomerang

Karma is a boomerang

 


 

BEST WESTERN BEAUTY 

(Lauren & Paul Waaktaar-Savoy)

 

* Note: The promo single version of the song is the same as the album version.

 

 

I'm watching the light changing over the hills

In reckless Nebraska

You're living here still

The only thing you need to know about me

Is every little thing your eyes cannot see

Come meet me if you will

By the look-out point up on the hill

Come see me if you please

My Best Western beauty

I'm down on my knees

I held you so long in the palm of my hands

Reckless Nebraska

You know where I am

The only thing I need to know about you

Is every little thing that's hidden from view

Come meet me if you will

By the look-out point up on the hill

And now, a year since we met

My Best Western beauty I just can't forget

The only thing you need to know about me

The only thing you need to know about me

Come meet me if you will

By the look-out point up on the hill

And now, a year since we met

My Best Western beauty I just can't forget

Come meet me if you will

By the look-out point up on the hill

And now, a year since we met

My Best Western beauty I just can't forget

 


 

STAR "I'M NOT STUPID BABY" (Reworked Version)  

(Lauren & Paul Waaktaar-Savoy)

 

I - I go crazy with the way you are

You're such a star baby
I go crazy with the things you do
Can't I be you...?
And if I call you up, you're not alone
If I stay too late, you won't drive me home
If I ask you out, I know you won't come
I'm not stupid baby

I - I go crazy with the way you are

You're such a star baby
I go crazy with the things you do
Can't I be you...?

If I say I do, you will say you don't

If I say I will, you will say you won't

If I ask you out, I know you won't come
I'm not stupid baby
I - I go crazy with the way you are
You're such a star baby
I go crazy with the things you do
Can't I be you...?
Star...
Star...
In the morning and you're fast asleep
I can see you smile in... in your sleep
I - I go crazy with the way you are
You're such a star baby
I go crazy with the things you do
Well, can't I be you...?
I - I go crazy with the way you are
You're such a star baby
I go crazy with the things you do
Oh, can't I be you...?
Babe
I'm not stupid baby
I'm not stupid baby

 


 

TEARS FROM A STONE  (Reworked Version)  

(Lauren & Paul Waaktaar-Savoy)

 

In the dawning hour

Break of day

Strikes an old church tower

A mile away

Based on old transcriptions

From a song

We'll be mining

Tears from a stone

From a stone

From a stone

Yeah

As the morning daylight

Enters here

We'll be adding curses

To a prayer

Taking notes down

As we go along

Yeah, we'll be mining

Tears from a stone

From a stone

From a stone

Tears from a stone

You shoot the blame out

Like a star

That never asked us

Who we are

You shoot a wish out

To the sky

It never asked us

Where we hide

Where we hide

From a stone

Tears from a stone

Ooh

Tears from a stone

Yeah

 


 

GRIND YOU DOWN (Reworked Version)   

(Lauren & Paul Waaktaar-Savoy)

 

I got news from my brother yesterday

I got news from my brother, hey hey hey

When they grind you down, into the ground

And there's really no one to be found

I got news from my brother, yesterday

He said, he had seen you, seen you with her

When you grind me down, into the ground

I won't ask for help, you're not around

No one knows where the summer goes

Yeah the summer goes

You wait all year then the summer comes

Yeah the summer comes

Summer comes

Yeah the summer comes

The summer comes

No one knows where the summer goes

Yeah the summer goes

You wait all year then the summer comes

Yeah the summer comes

Summer comes

Yeah the summer comes

The summer comes

I got news from my brother just today

He said I'm really sorry, I made a mistake

When it grinds you down, into the ground

And you feel like sinking in ground

No one knows where the summer goes

Yeah the summer goes

You wait all year then the summer comes

Yeah the summer comes

Summer comes

Oh the summer comes

The summer comes

I got news

I got news

I got news

I got news

 


 

REASONS TO STAY INDOORS (Reworked Version)  

(Lauren & Paul Waaktaar-Savoy)

 

You'll get accepted into Yale

But they'll excuse you when you fail

You'll get a scholarship to brown

But that color brings you down

You'll go to Colgate for a year

In the fresh air up there

You'll grow a habit hard to please

From a semester overseas

You're really not quite well

You know that

And everyone can tell

You know the reasons to stay indoors

You don't need anymore

you remind me of the man

I once was

And some say

I still am

You'll land a job right out of school

While your friends do something cool

You'll get politically involved

But your actions lack resolve

You'll play the loner for awhile

Dressed in black and creepy vibes

You'll stay inside for weeks on end

With imaginary friends

You're really not quite well

You know that

And everyone can tell

You know the reasons to stay indoors

You don't need anymore

You remind me of the man

I once was

And some say

I still am

Reasons to stay indoors

You don't need anymore

You remind me of the man

I once was

And some say

I still am

You don't need anymore

You remind me of the man

I once was

And some say

I still am

You remind me of the man

I once was

And some say

I still am

You'll get accepted into Yale

But they'll excuse you when you fail

You'll get a scholarship to brown

But that color brings you down

 


 

WHALEBONE (Reworked Version)  

(Lauren & Paul Waaktaar-Savoy)

 

Don't ask questions you don't want to know

Don't ask for reasons, I will let it show

You gotta know by now how I feel

You gotta know how it feels

Oh, weeping night

Oh, grieving sky

Oh, rabbit wind

You just flew by

Oh, grant me this

Some small reward

I need to make sense of it all

And we can walk down by the beach

Into the sand we will reach

A whalebone washed on the shore

Like knowledge gained you can't ignore

Don't ask questions you don't want to know

Don't ask for reasons, better let it go

You gotta know by now how it feels

You gotta know how it feels

Can't believe the things we said and did, only yesterday

I don't wanna make too big a deal over yesterday

Gotta know how it feels

Oh, weeping night

Oh, grieving sky

Oh, rabbit wind

You just flew by

Oh, grant me this

Some small reward

I need to make sense of it all

And we can walk down by the beach

Into the sand we will reach

A whalebone washed on the shore

Like knowledge gained you can't ignore

Don't ask questions...

 


 

BAREFOOT IN A DENIM JACKET  

(Lauren & Paul Waaktaar-Savoy)

 

She comes to see you

You rise to greet her

She wants some answers

Such lines you feed her

She's unafraid what will unfold

She'll go down any conversational road

Aaah-ahhhh - Barefoot in a denim jacket

Aaah-ahhhh - Barefoot in a denim jacket

She's subway riding

She's landlord riding

She's crystal gazing

And contemplating

Her massive moodswings turn you on

This retro summer's pulling you along

Barefoot in a denim jacket

Barefoot in a denim jacket

With sunlight falling through her hair

Over you

Over you

Aaah-ahhhh - Barefoot in a denim jacket

Aaah-ahhhh - Barefoot in a denim jacket

Aaah-ahhhh - Barefoot in a denim jacket

Aaah-ahhhh - Barefoot in a denim jacket

Ooooohhh - Denim Jacket

Ooooohhh - Denim Jacket

Ooooohhh - Denim Jacket

Ooooohhh - Denim Jacket

Ooooohhh - Denim Jacket

Ooooohhh - Denim Jacket

 


 

LACKLUSTER ME (Reworked Version)  

(Lauren & Paul Waaktaar-Savoy)

 

Lackluster me

Stands before you

What can I be

To make you want me

All I have

I give to you

It's all I need

To pull me through

And we will get it while we can

We will walk out across the land

We'll let the birds feed off our hands

Out of our hands

Lackluster me

There I said it,

Oooh

You could break me

Oooh

Don't you get it

All I have

I give to you

All I wrote

To get me through

And we will get out while we can

We'll put our heads up from the sand

Two movie lovers with a band

Yeah, with a band

All I have

I give to you

All I want

You want it too

Don't you...

And we will get it while we can

We will walk out across the land

We'll let the birds feed off our hands

Out of our hands

Out of our hands

It's out of our hands

It's out of our hands

It's out of our hands

It's out of our hands

It's out of our hands

It's out of our hands

It's out of our hands

 


 

CD2:

 


 

VELVET   

(Lauren & Paul Waaktaar-Savoy)

 

Her skin is like velvet

Her face out from stone

Her eyes when she's smiling

Will never reach home

But hear how she sings

Her touch would be tender

Her lips would be warm

But when we're together

I'm always alone

But hear how she sings

Oh yeah

Hear how she sings

Oh hear how she sings

Her skin is like velvet...

So I went to her home

Her place, like a palace

With things you can't own

Yeah

Her skin is like velvet

And hear how she sings

Hear how she sings

She sings

Oh yeah

And hear how she sings

Alright...

Alright...

Alright...

Alright...

Yeah, right

Alright...

 


 

MAN IN THE PARK (SINGLE VERSION)  

(Lauren & Paul Waaktaar-Savoy)

 

Hey, talk to the girl cause she's good,

She's a little misunderstood

Talk to the girl cause she's good

Hey, talk to the man cause he knows,

Just how the story goes

Talk to the man that knows

And I think you'll find that what he says

Doesn't seem that crazy when you're in his head

And I think you'll see that what he thinks

Makes a lot of sense when you're on the brink

When you're on the brink

Hey, talk to the flower shop girl,

She's all alone in this world,

Talk to the flower girl

Hey, talk to the man in park,

He'll tell you he's lost the spark

Talk to the man in the dark

And I think you'll find that what he says

Doesn't seem that crazy when you're in his head

And I think you'll see that what he thinks

Makes a lot of sense when you're on the brink

When you're on the brink

He's the man in the dark

He's the man in the park

And I think you'll find that what he says

Doesn't seem that crazy when you're in his head

And I think you'll see that what he thinks

Makes a lot of sense when you're on the brink

When you're on the brink

 


 

END OF THE LINE  

(Lauren & Paul Waaktaar-Savoy)

 

Four o'clock in the morning,

Just got home as it's dawning

Catch me now that I'm falling

End of the line

Days go by in a heartbeat

Single life when it's bittersweet

Gotta get back on my own feet

End of the line

And I don't know how to solve it,

Don't know how to revolve it

I don't know what to call it...

But end of the line

I don't know how to break it,

Don't know how I can take this,

I don't know if I'll make it

To the end of the line

I turned away from something real

I walked away from something good

Nine o'clock in the evening

Wake me up if I'm dreaming

Every day leaves me reeling

End of the line

Yesterday, she calls me back,

She lets me know just where it's at

Harsh words for an insomniac

End of the line

And I don't know how to solve it,

Don't know how to revolve it

I don't know what to call it...

But end of the line

I don't know how to break it,

Don't know how to take it

I don't know if I'll make it

To the end of the line

I turned away from something real

I walked away from something good

Days go by in a heartbeat

Single life when it's bittersweet

Gotta get back on my own feet

End of the line

And I don't know how to solve it,

Don't know how to revolve it

I don't know what to call it...

But end of the line

I don't know how to break it,

Don't know how I'll take this

I don't know if I'll make it

To the end of the line

I turned my back on something real

I walked away from something good

Yeah

I turned away from something real

I walked away from something good

Something good

Something good

Something good

Something good

(Lauren & Paul Waaktaar-Savoy)

 

I - I go crazy with the way you are

You're such a star baby
I go crazy with the things you do
Can't I be you...?
And if I call you up, you're not alone
If I stay too late, you won't drive me home
If I ask you out, I know you won't come
I'm not stupid baby

I - I go crazy with the way you are

You're such a star baby
I go crazy with the things you do

DAYLIGHT'S WASTING  

(Lauren & Paul Waaktaar-Savoy)

 

Washington square's right up the street

That was the place where we would meet

Outside the dog run, don't be late

Most of the times I'd sit and wait

Looking at people pass me by

A customer's begging his supply

Just as you thought she wouldn't show

There she comes running

Don't you know it

Daylight's wasting

Yeah, daylight

I can taste it

As it falls from the sky

I had a band of certain fame

The brownstone walk

Ups was our name

The singer was fair but got it wrong

He never did justice to my songs

He did more for me and that's a fact

When he went and stabbed me in the back

So, I've gotta do now, don’t you know

What I should've done five years ago

Daylight's wasting

Daylight

Yes, I can taste it

As it falls from the sky

Daylight's wasting

Daylight

Daylight

Daylight's wasting

Daylight's

Daylight's

As it falls from the sky

Daylight's wasting

Daylight

 


 

EMPTY OF FEELING 

(Lauren & Paul Waaktaar-Savoy)

 

Yeah

I wake you up in the morning

Just to ask if I'm empty and boring

You shake me up in the evening

Just to ask if I'm empty of feeling

I, I know you do it good

I, I know you do it good

You sit me down on a green lawn

I'm getting tired of your voice-tone

I'm tryin' hard to be creative

Still you're acting like we're related

I, I know you make it good

I, I know you make it good

You told me once as we held hands

I was your connection to the main land

Empty of feeling... Empty of feeling...

Empty of feeling... Empty of feeling...

Empty of feeling... Empty of feeling...

Empty of feeling... Empty of feeling...

I, I know you do it good

I, I know you do it good

Yeah

I wake you up in the morning

Just to ask if I'm empty and boring

You shake me up in the evening

When you ask if I'm empty of feeling

I, I know you do it good

I, I know you do it good

I, I know you do it good

I, I know you do it good

I, I know you do it good... Empty of feeling...

I, I know you do it good... Empty of feeling...

Empty of feeling... Empty of feeling...

 


 

FOOLISH  

(Lauren & Paul Waaktaar-Savoy)

 

Woke up

To a lonely type of day

I'm running out of reasons

I should stay

Put your arms around me

What can I say

Leave me where you found me

Then walk away

I'm staying through to Friday

Then I'm gone

Unreachable by letters

Or by phone

But one day I'll be calling

Way down the road baby

Stop me then from falling

Don't let me go

Put your arms around me

What can I say

Leave me where you found me

Then walk away

I let her slip away

That was foolish

I bow to the ovation

In my head

Put your arms around me

One for the road, baby

Leave me where you found me

Then walk away

Some day you will know

I'll be damned if I ever

Can let you go

And it keeps me together

To know

And it keeps me together

To know

Yeah... Yeah... Yeah... Yeah... Yeah... Yeah... Yeah... Yeah... Yeah... 

Yeah... Yeah... Yeah... Yeah... Yeah... Yeah... Yeah... Yeah... Yeah... 

Yeah...Yeah...Yeah...Yeah...Yeah...Yeah...

Some day you will know

I'll be damned if I ever

Can let you go

And it keeps me together

To know

Put your arms around me

Then walk away

 


 

UNSOUND  

(Lauren & Paul Waaktaar-Savoy)

 

You say you fly

At times right under me

You say you think you know

What's wrong with me

Well, well

When I don't know what to say

I'd rather walk away

No point asking me to stay

I'd rather walk away

You say that you see (you see)

Winter wants me empty

When I don't know what to say

I'd rather walk away

No point asking me to stay

I'd rather walk away

I'd rather walk away

'Cos I'm,

UNSAFE

UNSOUND

Unwise to be around

You say (you say) you fly (that you fly)

At times right over me

You say (you say) you think (that you think) you've got

The best of me

Well, well

When I don't know what to say

I'd rather walk away

No point asking me to stay

I'd rather walk away

I'd rather walk away

'Cos I'm,

UNSAFE

UNSOUND

Unwise to be around

Yes I'm

UNSAFE

UNSOUND

Unwise to be around

Unwise to be around

Unwise to be around

Unwise to be around

Unwise to be around

Yeah

WINTER WANTS ME

EMPTY

Well...

 


 

FEAR LIST 

(Lauren & Paul Waaktaar-Savoy)

 

It's so itchy that you have to itch

It doesn't matter if it bleeds

It's so lonely that you lose the grip

In a momentary bliss

In a momentary bliss

Did you spill the milk

Did the milk spill

Were you late for work

Did your head hurt

Did your mind ache

Did the day break

Did your car stall

Did the water fall

It's so hurtful that you have to laugh

People ask you what it is

It's so pointless that you wanna cry

In a momentary bliss

In a momentary bliss

Did you lose the bet

Did the sunset

Did the tide turn

Did you sunburn

Did you spill the milk

Did the milk spill

Did she run away

On a summer's day

It's so itchy that you have to itch

It doesn't matter if it bleeds

It's so lonely that you lose the grip

In a momentary bliss

In a momentary bliss

In a momentary bliss

Did the water fall

Did you lose the bet

Did the sunset

Did the tide turn

Did you sunburn

Did you spill the milk

Did the milk spill

Did she run away

On a summer's day

Did you lose the bet

Did the sunset

Did the tide turn

Did you sunburn

Did you spill the milk

Did the milk spill

Did she run away

On a summer's day

 


 

BOTTOMLESS PIT   

(Lauren & Paul Waaktaar-Savoy)

 

You say it wouldn't work

It wouldn't take

It wouldn't do any good

It wouldn't change a thing

And I being I

Can't say much to deny it

But I'm stuck with an urge

To only have tried it

You say it wouldn't do

It wouldn't shake

It wouldn't make any waves

It wouldn't be no use

And you being you

You know sure how to phrase it

And I being I

I just have to embrace it...

Don't I

You say it wouldn't breathe

It wouldn't move

It wouldn't stay in the groove

It wouldn't stand a chance

You say it wouldn't wash

It wouldn't wear

It wouldn't go anywhere

It wouldn't do it for you

And I being I

Can't say much to deny it

I'm stuck with an urge

To only have tried it

You say it wouldn't float

It wouldn't stick

It would sink like a brick

In a bottomless pit

In a bottomless pit

And you being you

You know sure how to phrase it

And I being I

I just have to embrace it...

You say it wouldn't breathe

It wouldn't move

It wouldn't stay in the groove

It wouldn't stand a chance at all

At all

At all

 


 

YOU WON'T COME TO THE PARTY 

(Lauren & Paul Waaktaar-Savoy)

 

You wanna know

Who's gonna go

Who's gonna show

You wanna say

Maybe next time

You say you might

Stay in tonight

But I will say

you're out of your mind

If you won't come to the party

On grounds of nothing to wear

All the beautiful people

And I will be there

You wanna find

Some private time

You underline

The week has been

Grinding you down

But if you go

I'm gonna show

Just how I feel

I'm head over heels

If you won't come to the party

On grounds of nothing to wear

All the beautiful people

And I will be there

And when I arrive

I look for your eyes

I'm hoping to see

You looking for me

And when I arrive

I look for your eyes

I'm hoping to see

You looking for me

Out of your mind

If you won't come to the party

On grounds of nothing to wear

All the beautiful people

And I will be there

If you won't come to the party

On grounds of nothing to wear

All the beautiful people

And I will be there

I will be there

I will be there

I will be there

If you won't come to the party

 


 

THE BREAKERS

(Lauren & Paul Waaktaar-Savoy)

 

I can still recall the time, sitting in the sand

And watch the breakers as they roll upon the shore

You just walked right up to me, having asked around

You've had no takers to take you

Far away from here

Then I come along to hold your hand

Everything is up, and it's alright, cause I feel

The engine pulling us towards a new day's light

Everything is down and it's ok, cause I feel the engine

Humming and it's taking us away

I've been seeing you around sitting in the sand

And watching breakers as they roll upon the shore

You always have your friends around, but something

You should know, I think they're fakers

I'm the only one you need

Here I come along to hold your hand

Everything is off, but that's just fine cause

I see the engine running down the straight white line

Everything goes wrong, but that's alright

Because I hear the engine humming as it penetrates

The night

Where do we go from here?

Stepping into mid-air

How do we work it out?

Where do we check our doubts?

Everything is up, and it's alright, cause I feel

The engine pulling us towards a new day's light

Everything is down and it's ok, cause I feel the engine

Humming and it's taking us away

That's just fine cause

I see the engine running down the straight white line

Everything goes wrong, but that's alright

Because I hear the engine humming as it penetrates

The night

 


 

YOU SHOULD'VE TOLD ME  

(Lauren & Paul Waaktaar-Savoy)

 

In the morning

And the air so still

Cars are passing

Beneath my windowsill

Dusty sidewalks, in the afternoon

Coastal mountains, I will be there soon

You should have told me

I should have told you, that the dam won't hold

I should have called you, but the line went cold

I should have held you in my arms each night

I should've told you when the time was right

Seasons will turn

Never will I learn

Moments will pass

I always think they'll last

You should have told me.

I should have told you, when I had the chance

I should have told you, the way I planned

Dusty sidewalks in the afternoon,

Coastal mountains, I will be there soon.

You should have told me

Seasons will turn

Never will I learn

Moments will pass

I always think they'll last

You should have told me

I should have told you

You should have told me

I should have told you

You should have told me

I should have told you

 


 

FACE  

(Lauren & Paul Waaktaar-Savoy)

 

Every time I look at your face

There's a vibe that's coming thru

Every time you look at my face

Girl, I hope you feel it too

I could never do much harm

With you beside me

I could never go much wrong

With you to guide me

I could never do much harm

With you beside me

I could never go much wrong

With you to guide me

I could never do much harm

Driving into New York city

And my heart begins to soar

Driving into New York city

From a trip upstate New York

I could never get too cold

With you to hold me

I could never grow too old

For you to hold me

I could never do much harm

With you beside me

I could never go much wrong

With you to guide me

I could never do much harm

With you beside me

Like a book you forget

That you've recently read

I could never do much harm

With you beside me

I could never go much wrong

With you to guide me

I could never do much harm

With you to guide me

I could never go much wrong

With you beside me

With you beside me

With you to guide me

I could never do much harm

Every time I look at your face

There's a vibe that's coming thru
