Track Name: if I were the sky right now
If I were the sky

If I were the sky right now
I could hide my face in clouds
like those that hide
the stars from you
Instead I hold a monologue
while searching for your hand
in your coat’s sleeve
that’s far too long
You talk about the lights
across the bay
a wall of many-coloured
wadding embracing you
cold damp and silent
Track Name: one degree below zero
One Degree Below Zero

What once made me cute
Now makes you sick
What you once found witty
Now makes me smart-arsed
What once was funny
Now counts as dumb
One degree below Zero
One degree below Zero
I feel like one degree below Zero
Any thought of how we were makes me freeze
In the beginning you made me believe that
No one is better than me
Now you changed your mind just a little
You tell me being with no one
Is better than being with me
One degree below Zero
One degree below Zero
I feel like one degree below Zero
Any thought of how we were makes me freeze
Track Name: too tired
Too tired

All I want is to look at your face
I don’t want to sleep I am too tired to eat
I don’t even want to write this song
The only thing I want is to look at your face
The sun is too hot the rain is too cold
I can’t walk all my shoes are two sizes too small
To watch you walk away is a torture
The only thing I can do is to stare at your face
The only thing I can do is to gaze at the air
Air that is full of childhood and light
I don’t want to sleep I am too tired to eat
The only thing I can do is to gaze at the air
Track Name: embarrassing
Embarrassing

Lately I’ve been finding myself embarrassing to be with
Lately I’ve been finding myself embarrassing to be with
I go out to places that I hate and I find some people and irritate them
Later on when I go home I think about what I’ve said and done
Lately I’ve been finding myself embarrassing to be with
Lately I’ve been finding myself embarrassing to be with
Track Name: you know the names
You know the names

That's what I call a fine sense of humour
To suggest that we be friends
Don't worry you're just one more disappointment
If a slightly bigger one
You're just one more in the number of those
Who talk a lot and deliver nil
I'm sure you will excuse me leaving early
I'm just sick of your friendly smile
You tell me you are an anarchist
You know the names and all the world
Yet the pivot of your little world
Is but the apple of your sparkling eye
Track Name: toleration
Toleration

The budget allocated for me to have fun with you
Is very nearly exhausted
I need to find a new title
For this old story
I am a happy bunny just a little bit tired right now
I may not exactly worship life
But it certainly has its moments
Some more some less full of glory
I am not sure should I learn toleration
Or simply stop hating what I hate
But you'd surely be much better off
Not working so hard to discover yourself
You might find what you might find rather boring
Track Name: like the shadow of a fly
Like the shadow of a fly

She is evasive like the shadow of a fly
And she doesn't talk a lot at all
She’s never been where she said she’d be
Nor is she likely to return a call
Since she is hardly ever present
She is a memory first of all
A memory of a promise
Of happiness postponed
And yet I love to see her smile
Because her smile appears to tell me
All the things I would not dare
To hope to hear her say
Track Name: spiral stair
Spiral Stair

You are rushing down a narrow spiral stair
You die of thirst in the hot pulsating air
You lost your way
You can’t remember where you were
Your brains don’t work
Behind the dark screens of your eyes
Looking up the bridge you think how would that be if you could
Sit down and decide to be happy and at ease
You lost your way
You can’t remember where you were
Your brains don’t work
Behind the dark screens of your eyes
Track Name: my last parachute
My last parachute

I stay in hiding waiting for things to catch up with me
I wish I had not missed the class
In which they taught the making of flattering remarks
I want to give you my last pair of shoes
I want to give you my last parachute
If you would please be so sweet
Please be direct and concrete
I want to give you for a gift half of the love I have for you
So that each one of us was possessed by an equal measure of love
I want to give you my last pair of shoes ...
I punish myself with the hope you wanted to see me as much as I want to see you
So I wait for you to mail or to text or better still to turn up unexpectedly at my door
I want to give you ...
Track Name: home
Home

Home is where my tombstone stands
Home is where anxiety bends me
Home is where I put together yesterday and tomorrow
Home is where I am fleeing from
Unless I lie six feet deep
Where home is
Track Name: steal your time no more
Steal your time no more

I ain't gonna steal your time no more
When you share your time with me
I am as happy as a child
Yet your time economy
Spells thrift and austerity
When we meet about once in a fortnight
The time we spend is sweet and tender
But I can’t help dreaming night after night
Of being a constant entry on your agenda
Ten o'clock get up eleven o'clock lunch
Twelve o'clock shag twelve thirty good bye
Oh you're so busy
I ain't gonna steal your time no more
You tell me love is a magic remedy
Of extraordinary efficacy But for fear of an overdose calamity
You practice strict homeopathy
I know I should be grateful
That you don't occupy all my time Would I not feel so doleful
I wouldn’t find such a beautiful rhyme
Ten o'clock...
Track Name: nothing of importance
Nothing of Importance

Sometimes I wish
You were here
And we weren't saying a word
Together
We weren't doing a single thing
No questions gnawed at our minds
Not even gentle music
We would play (So I suppose)
That day
Nothing of importance
Would lie before nor behind us
And after having spent that day that way
The most we would do
Would be to rinse our tea things
Track Name: sometimes I think it isn't
Sometimes I think it isn’t

Love turning to pity is one of the ways how love dies
Love bringing up memories is one of the ways how love dies
We continue to continue going out
To avoid the troubles of falling in love again
Sometimes I think it is sometimes I think it isn’t
Sometimes I think it is sometimes I think it isn’t
To steer clear of the nuisance
Of having to make conversation with strangers at parties
Sometimes I think it is sometimes I think it isn’t
Sometimes I think it is sometimes I think it isn’t
Now I am protected from friendly take-over
Now my shares are afloat again
Track Name: one degree below zero 2005 remix
One Degree Below Zero

What once made me cute
Now makes you sick
What you once found witty
Now makes me smart-arsed
What once was funny
Now counts as dumb
One degree below Zero
One degree below Zero
I feel like one degree below Zero
Any thought of how we were makes me freeze
In the beginning you made me believe that
No one is better than me
Now you changed your mind just a little
You tell me being with no one
Is better than being with me
One degree below Zero
One degree below Zero
I feel like one degree below Zero
Any thought of how we were makes me freeze
