1.
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
2.
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

too tired 02:53
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
4.
embarrassing 01:51
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
5.
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
6.
toleration 02:42
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
7.
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
8.
spiral stair 03:00
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
9.
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 ...
10.
home 02:51
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
11.
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...
12.
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
13.
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
