Track Name: Impossible Girl #1
She's the first one of her kind
and the last one in her line
She's a creature so rare
you can't be sure she's really there.

Hey, hey, she's the Impossible Girl.

You can look but you can't touch,
because she feels it all so much.
And her fire burns so bright
you'll have to hide from her light.

Hey, hey, she's the Impossible Girl.

Without a word she broke your heart
just one look and you fell apart.
She turns your world upside-down
even when she's not around.

Hey, hey, she's the Impossible Girl.

Hey, hey, she's the Impossible Girl.
Track Name: Rainbows and Unicorns
I want to suspend disbelief, want to fail my reality check
I want my heart to beat so hard it breaks
I just find it hard to believe in the things that I used to
like rainbows and unicorns and how love can make me shake

I want you to break my heart to save me
I want you to crush my dreams
'cause it'll mean that I had some
and I want some

I want to laugh so hard I choke and can't breathe
I want you to make me cry so I can't see
i want to walk five miles in the pouring rain and get soaking wet
just to find that you aren't home, I'll do it all again

I want you to break my heart to save me
I want you to crush my dreams
'cause it'll mean that I had some
and I want some

I want to suspend disbelief, want to fail my reality check
I want my heart to beat so hard it breaks
I just find it hard to believe in the things that I used to
like rainbows and unicorns,
and sparkles,
and the color pink,
and dishes not left in the sink,
and how you used to look at me,
before we started arguing
and how love can make me shake

I want you to break my heart to save me
I want you to crush my dreams
'cause it'll mean that I had some
and I want some
Track Name: More and More
You can have my keys
If I can have your heart
You can sleep on my couch
If I can sleep on top of you

Oh you, you can have everything you need
Oh you, you can have everything
You can have everything
And more

You can be my carpet
And I'll be your floor
I'll be your music
If you play me like a guitar

Oh you, you can do everything to me
Oh you, you can do everything
You can do everything
And more

If I was a sonnet
I'd be 15 lines long
And if I was a pop quiz
I'd have 90% of my answers wrong

Oh but you, you're always right about everything
Oh you, you're right about everything
All the time
And more

You can use my toilet
If you promise to flush
You can help me write this song
I'm not asking for much

Oh we, we can have everything we need
Oh we, we can have everything
we can have everything
And more

And more

And more

And more
Track Name: Open/Avocado
Come give me your heart
I will put it in a jar
on the windowsill

like an avocado

Come give me your hand
watch the space between
like a fertile mind it can

open open

open open

open open

I will look inside you

I will look inside you
Track Name: Gypsy
I'm in love with a gypsy
Oh, woe is me
And you would know my pain
If you'd ever loved a gypsy

I'm in love with a gypsy
I never know where she is
I never show if she wants to be touched
If she wants to be kissed

She never calls, she never writes
She always shows up in the middle of the night
Oh the irony, I've been captured by a gypsy

I'm in love with a gypsy
I tried to let her go
But the harder I try
The more I know
I'm in love with gypsy
I just can't let her be
She wanted her freedom
And so took mine from me

She never calls
She never writes
She shows up with 23 friends in the middle of the night
Oh the irony, I've been captured by a gypsy

I tried to keep her
Without tying her down
But the more love I gave her
The more she left town
I said no strings attached
But I didn't mean it
Now when she leaves
Oh god do I feel it

She never calls, she never writes
She always shows up in the middle of the night
Oh the irony, I've been captured by a gypsy

Now I just can't leave
What if she came by
If I wasn't here
She might never try again
I'm stuck in a cage
I'm afraid to lose
It's made of her absence
Oh god am I confused

She never calls
She never writes
Last night she showed up with 23 friends , they all needed to be fed
Oh the irony, I've been captured by a gypsy
Track Name: Impossible Girl #4
Someday she will stop leaving
maybe that will be with you.
Someday she will stay in one place
it's something she'd really like to do.

Oh, what a fairytale.
Oh, she'll never stay still.
Oh, what a fairytale.
If she won't believe it then nobody ever will.

Someday she will make the same bed
over and over again.
Someday she she will write the letters
to all her long lost lovers and friends.
Someday she will have an address
at which to get all their replies.
Someday she will plant a garden,
and lift her head and sing to the skies.

Oh, what a fairytale.
Oh, she'll never stay still.
Oh, what a fairytale.
If she won't believe it then nobody ever will.
Track Name: Stalker
I like to watch you as you walk by
Open your heart up and fly
So high you're touching the moon
I wish I could be there soon

With you, with you
With you, with you

I like to watch you while you're undressing
You always leave the curtains open
I've always assumed it was so I could see you
Open your heart and wish I could be

With you, with you
With you, with you

I like to watch you: laughing or crying
Planting your garden or going out partying
I am the one you see on the corner
Is that concern or do you wish I was

With you, with you
With you, with you
With you, with you
With you, with you
Track Name: Impossible Girl #2
She's not sick
but she's dying
She's not in love
but it's forever
She doesn't like you
but she doesn't mind
you can come by
and steal her time

it grows in the garden
it grows in the garden
it grows in the garden
it grows in the garden
it grows in the garden
it grows in the garden
Track Name: He Said
He said, "I love you so go away, go away"
He said, "I don't want to see you in a cage"
He said, "You are a creature of boundless freedom"
He said, "I don't want to catch you, don't want to keep you here."

If I had a nickel for every time,
I heard another man say that line,
I'd be filthy stinking rich,
but I'd still be alone at the end of this.
Track Name: Sex, Drugs, & Nuclear Physics
Well, you're not rich and you're not good lookin,
you don't have a car and you're not good at cookin,
how can you get a hell of a gal like me?

Well I don't care for looks, and I don't like money,
and I never met a car that I wanna call honey,
oh it's sex and drugs and nuclear physics for me.

I like brains and I like 'em big,
I don't care what the neighbors think,
I don't care what my parents say, I'm gonna do it my way.

Sex and drugs and nuclear physics,
if you have all three I might come for a visit,
if we get to fission i just might stay.

Now do-see-do, and carry the seven,
twirl your partner, square root of eleven
fellas, ladies, listen quick,
now you do some arithmetics:

Oh five plus three?
You can me we can go a date
Now five minus three ?
Oh honey that's me plus you

Well I don't care for looks, and I don't like money,
and I never met a car that i wanna call honey,
oh it's sex and drugs and nuclear physics for me.

sex, drugs, and the theory of relativity
sex, drugs, particle accelerators by the sea
sex, and drugs, and quantum calculations...........for me
Track Name: The Organ Donor's March
One fine day someone came and
took your life away.
That's the day you gave
your heart to me.
It was a long operation,
filled with complications,
now we're together, just like lovers
we are one.

I have your heart, it beats inside
it's only three inches wide.
I have your heart, I have your heart
I have your heart.

We're sewn together just you and me
so let's begin oh finally,
I'll take you out for walks
we'll always be together.
We're sewn together oh through and through
so now I'm living my life for two,
I feel the pressure to be good enough
for you.

I have your heart, it beats inside
it's only three inches wide.
I have your heart, I have your heart
I have your heart.

Now I'm becoming you
or are you becoming me,
every time I talk to the boy that I like
you beat so sweetly.
But I swear just yesterday
as I was making my way
down an escalator,
a pretty girl turned my head.

I have your heart, it beats inside
it's only three inches wide.
I have your heart, I have your heart
I have your heart.

I didn't know your name,
you were a different color,
but now that you're inside,
it doesn't matter.
The guilt, the shame, the scars, the pain,
you're only dead cuz I'm alive…
…or is it the other way around?
I can't decide.

I have your heart, it beats inside
it's only three inches wide.
I have your heart, I have your heart
I have your heart
Track Name: Slip Away
Slip away, slip away
from my side.
If you don't slip away
I might keep you for all time

Others before have fallen,
been left behind,
but not you,
you're here just in time,
just in time.


Slip away, slip away
if I say it's you.
If you don't slip away
it might be true.

Others before have tried,
it's always been a lie,
but not you,
you're here just in time,
just in time.

Slip away, slip away…
Slip away, slip away...
Track Name: Song for my Father
In between me and you
are a million points of light,
I've cast them up into a darkening sky.
You can follow them to me
when you are lost or you are free
and I will wait here, I will wonder why.

The closer I get to the truth
the further away I feel,
I am grappling in a terrifying free fall.
All I have is all I know,
a vague concept of how it goes,
it coalesces, makes a shape, then slips away.
Track Name: Impossible Girl #3
She looked into the eye
of a passing storm
in it found the answers
to a questionable world.
If you're looking for the key
you'll find it at the corner store
it comes in many colors
they all make your life the same

shallow, shallow

Ignoring the influence
of a boring job
and advertising
she has danced here on the back
of this bright cold morning.
She has brought you
these words she sings
please don't fall into the

shallows, shallows
Track Name: Big Easy
I went to New Orleans
I fell in love
don't know how it happened
it's all i can think of

It may be the big easy
it's not easy to leave

I met a pretty lady there
she said you'll never go
you have that look in your eye
New Orleans has a hold

It may be the big easy
it's not easy to leave

My old home caught fire
burned to ash
New Orleans itself
is almost a thing of the past

It may be the big easy
it's not easy to leave

As I step on my train I think
I don't wanna go
it may not always be here
and it feels like home

It may be the big easy
it's not easy to leave

I went to New Orleans
I fell in love
don't know how it happened
it's all i can think of

It may be the big easy
it's not easy to leave

It may be the big easy
it's not easy to leave
Track Name: EXPLICIT - Lick my Love Pump
Let's just fuck
Like we did before
Let's just fuck
until we're good and sore

Let's just fuck…let's just...

Let's just kiss
Like we did before
Let's just kiss
I don't want to commit to more

Let's just kiss…let's just...

Let's just talk
Like we did before
Let's just talk
And we can explore
Each other

Let's just talk…let's just...

Let's get married
Like we did before
Let's just married
Then we'll get divorced
Again

Let's get married…let's just…

Let's just fuck...
Let's just fuck...
Let's just fuck...
Track Name: Anyone At All
I once thought that I'd get married
To a man twice my age
Then I felt the winter coming
And I fell out again

Sometimes I fall in love
Sometimes I fall out
Sometimes I'm in love with love
Sometimes I am filled with doubt

I once thought that we'd get married
I thought of you as home
Then you said I was your savior
And I wanted to be alone

Sometimes I fall in love
Sometimes I fall out
Sometimes I'm in love with love
Sometimes I am filled with doubt

What makes me run?
What makes me fall?
What makes me so sure,
I don't want anyone at all?
Anyone at all.

I could write a thousand pop songs
I could live a thousand years
I could love a thousand times
And still not have all the answers

I could write a thousand pop songs
And I could live a thousand years
I could live a thousand times
and still not have all the answers

Sometimes I fall in love
Sometimes I fall out
Sometimes I'm in love with love
Sometimes I am filled with doubt

Sometimes I fall in love
Sometimes I fall out
Sometimes I'm in love with love
Sometimes I am filled with doubt
