TRAIN OF THOUGHT (U.S. Steve Thompson Extended Mix) 
(Pål Waaktaar)
 
* Previously released on the "Train Of Thought" 12" record.
 
He likes to have the morning paper's crossword solved
Words go up, words come down
Forwards, backwards, twisted round
He grabs a pile of letters from a small suitcase
Disappears into an office
It's another working day
And his thoughts are full of strangers
Corridors of naked lights
And his mind once full of reason
(The text in the Twelve Inch Club CD booklet is "And his mind was full of reason")   
Now there's more than meets the eye
Now a stranger's face he carries with him
(The text in the Twelve Inch Club CD booklet is "Oh a stranger's face, it travels with him")
He likes a bit of reading on the subway home
A distant radio's whistling tunes that nobody knows
At home a house awaits him,
He unlocks the door
Thinking "once there was a sea here
But there never was a door"
And his thoughts are full of strangers
And his eyes too numb to see
And nothing that he knows of
(The text in the Twelve Inch Club CD booklet is "There ain't nothing that he knows of")
And nowhere where he's been
Was ever quite like this
(The text in the Twelve Inch Club CD booklet is "Whatever it wasn't like this")
And his thoughts are full of strangers
Corridors of naked lights
And his mind once full of reason
Now there's more than meets the eye
Now a stranger's face he carries with him
And his thoughts are full of strangers
Corridors of naked lights
And his mind once full of reason
Now there's more than meets the eye
Now a stranger's face he carries with him
And at heart he's full of strangers
(The text in the Twelve Inch Club CD booklet is "And the heart is full of strangers")
Dodging on his train of thought
 

 
AND YOU TELL ME (Demo Version) 
(Pål Waaktaar)
 
* This track was previously released as B-side of "Train Of Thought" single.
 
* Note: Most of the text is identical to the studio version on the album HUNTING HIGH AND LOW. The differences are colored

 

Please don't hurt me
I have told you
All my love is
All I've got
And tomorrow is the day
When I for your sake
I'm coming back
And you tell me
That I don't love you
I'm trying hard to make you jealous
Thinking maybe it will make you stay
It's so hard, love drives me crazy
It's so hard when you're away
And you tell me
That I don't love you
Because I love you
I will show you all the faces my love can have
So, please
Let me come to you and stay this time
And you tell me
That I don't love you
Oh you know that it's just not true
Oh you know...
 

 
THE SUN ALWAYS SHINES ON T.V. (Steve Thompson Extended Version) 
(Paul Waaktaar-Savoy)
 
* Previously released on "The Sun Always Shines On T.V." 12" record.
 
Touch me
How can it be
Believe me
The sun always shines on T.V.
Hold me
Close to your heart
Touch me
And give all your love to me
To me...
I reached inside myself And found nothing there
(Missing in the text in the Twelve Inch Club CD booklet)
To ease the pressure of my ever worrying mind
(The text in the Twelve Inch Club CD booklet is "To ease the pressure off my ever worried mind")
Wo-ohhhhh
All my powers waste away
(The text in the Twelve Inch Club CD booklet is "All my hours waste away")
I fear the crazed and lonely looks the mirror's sending me these days
(The text in the Twelve Inch Club CD booklet is "I fear the crazy lonely looks the mirror's sending me these days")
Wo-ohhhhh
Touch me
How can it be
Believe me
The sun always shines on T.V.
Hold me
Close to your heart
Touch me
And give all your love to me
Please don't ask me to defend the shameful lowlands of the way
(The text in the Twelve Inch Club CD booklet is "Please don't ask me to defend the shameful lowlands of a flame")
I'm drifting gloomily through time
Wo-ohhhhh
(Touch me)
I reached inside myself today
(Give all your love)
Thinking there's got to be some way
To keep my troubles distant
Touch me
How can it be
Believe me
The sun always shines on T.V.
Hold me
Close to your heart
Touch me
And give all your love to me
Touch me
How can it be
Believe me
The sun always shines on T.V.
Hold me
Close to your heart
Touch me
And give all your love to me
Hold me
Close to your heart
Touch me
And give all your love to me (To me)
To me...

And at heart, he's full of strangers

Dodging on his train of thought

Train of thought

Dodging on his train of thought
