Track Name: Joyce & the Nancy Boys - the leaves
and first of all
the leaves have all fallen off the trees in this season by now
we haven't got our clothes on

and first of all
the winter's burning like a plague
a lit match in a sea of gasoline

and I'm sure you remember by now
how we never really closed our eyes
to the wind that was dragging us home
just sidled up silently to each other in bed
words stuck to our tongues

and now I can tell you, nice try
almost made me forget I wasn't alive
now I can tell you, nice try
never thought you were good enough to say you were mine

and first of all
the leaves have all fallen off the trees in this season by now
we haven't got our clothes on

and now we lie with strangers for a change
sucked into a sky we've never seen
and all that's keeping me
can't guess what he's going to say

and now I can tell you, nice try
almost made me forget I wasn't alive
now I can tell you, nice try
never thought you were good enough to say you were mine

and it's such a wonderful mess you've made of me
so float away with the generations of leaves
Track Name: Joyce & the Nancy Boys - this is where it begins
this is where it begins for me: I

don't get no chance to say
where we'll be ending up
don't get no chance to say
where you'll be taking me

I forget all of my past lives
time keeps on ticking
and I can't keep staying away

cause you speed and speed
faster than light
you're not gonna wait
for me to decide
is it a choice that I gotta make
or is it just not right

this is where it begins for me: I

don't get no chance to be
myself with you away from me
don't get no chance to be
who I always thought I'd be

did you forget all of my past lives
and she's got you thinking
that she is your only way out

oh, we're stuck in safe houses
with locks on the doors
how was I supposed to know
it was not like before
cause you scream and scream
inside your head
maybe my silence
was what put you into her bed
Track Name: Joyce & the Nancy Boys - weird rooms
yeah, so what if I hate you?
so I'm a deliberate fool
sometimes I dream about hurting you
in weird towns, in weird rooms
you never apologize
always try to hurt me, too
hurt me, too
see, that's what you get
for trusting your friends
see, that's what you get
for ever thinking anyone is actually your friend

and in a second we'll follow our egos into hell
and we wear blinders to block our peripheries
it's not the easiest thing to admit when you're weak
but I'm sick of pretending that all of this is well
I wanna see you stand up and hear you say it to my face
that you knew exactly what you were doing
I'm sick of blaming myself for all the shit that you did
I'm sick of losing my life for fear of admitting it

I wanna know
I wanna feel it

but we are not who we say we've been
we've been too many different things

we are not who we say we've been
we've been too many different things

we are not who we say we've been
we've been too many different things
to the people we have come to know
and we've fucked them all, we've fucked them all

and in a second we'll follow our egos into hell
and we wear blinders to block our peripheries
it's not the easiest thing to admit when you're weak
but I'm sick of pretending that all of this is well
I wanna see you stand up and hear you say it to my face
that you knew exactly what you were doing
I'm sick of blaming myself for all the shit that you did
I'm sick of losing my life for fear of admitting it
