Track Name: Vertigo
VERTIGO

V
Can I tell you something
Walking in the moonlight
The heatstroke flattery
Streaming across your eyes
Is like vertigo

C
Local notion
Sending smoke signals S.O.S.
Local notion
Sending smoke signals S.O.S.

V2
Keep me company
For piece of mind
The wind blows you away
Into something strange
Everything changed

C
Local notion
Sending smoke signals S.O.S.
Local notion
Sending smoke signals S.O.S.
We transgress, ahhhhh

Bridge
Patience a virtue
No need to hurry
You've got your magic
I've got to bury
Your sentiment left me in shambles
Nothing I couldn't handle
On and on

C
Local notion
Sending smoke signals S.O.S.
Local notion
Sending smoke signals S.O.S.
The needle on my record player
(It’s like a wave S.O.S.)
I’ve heard it all you are a player
(It’s like a wave S.O.S.)
Well I guess, this is the end
Track Name: Hotspur
V
Oh you Hotspur
You’ve surely incurred
My heart
My hollow heart

Oh you Hotspur
Spurred every inch of
My lips
My stolen lips

C
Sheets of glass
I won’t pass
I won’t pass

V2
You were a prince but
My heart was empty
My prince
Prince of my stolen lips

Your name was Hal
I was in hell but
My lips
My own two lips

C
Sheets of glass
I won’t pass
I won’t pass

B
Every time that you call
It’s my mistake
Every time that you fall
It’s my escape
And every time that you call
It’s my mistake
My mistake

V3
Oh you Hotspur
You’ve surely incurred
My heart
My hollow heart

Oh you Hotspur
Spurred every inch of
My lips
My stolen lips

C
Sheets of glass
I won’t pass
I won’t pass

B
Every time that you call
It’s my mistake
Every time that you fall
It’s my escape
And every time that you call
It’s my mistake
My mistake

Of all our crimes
I’ll judge you inside
My mistake
Track Name: Wait
V
All my friends have gone, I can see the sun
I've been racing around the world listening to rock n’ roll
I’m already home, the radio is on
I've been racing around the world listening to rock n roll

C
Wait, I don’t want to see the irony in asking you to wait
Simple love it’s not enough to save

V2
Everybody knows, so the story goes
I am lost you're the only one who can untangle my rock n’ roll

C
Wait, now everyone is asking me cause I say I’m ok
Imagine everything in life gone wrong

B
What, I hear that you’re leaving California?
What, what's the use in asking you to wait for me?

V3
Give me something new, something I can choose
I’ve been racing around the world for someone who has a clue
Acceptance I refuse, give me some good news
I am lost you're the only one, the only one

C
Wait, now everyone is asking me cause I say I’m ok
Imagine everything in life gone wrong
Wait, I don’t want to see the irony in asking you to wait
Simple love I guess it was enough

B
What, I hear that you live in California
What, what's the use in asking you to wait for me
‘Cause I’ll wait, for you, only you
Track Name: Perfect Love
PERFECT LOVE

V
Gimme gimme all I ever wanted
Gimme lies
Gimme gimme all I ever needed
I saw your dead eyes
Saw you die

V2
Gimme gimme all I ever wanted
Tonight
When you gave me all I ever needed
I saw your dead eyes
Saw you die

C
Mine is a perfect love
Mine is a perfect love
Perfect love
Perfect love

Instrumental breakdown

C
Mine is a perfect love
Mine is a perfect love
Perfect love

Your blood is on my bed
Your blood is in my head
Perfect love

Track Name: Dream Lover
V
Dream lover are you telling me,
This was all a fantasy?
And when I wake will it be the same, dreary feeling of reality.
It’s alright, will it be alright? I don’t know.
Comes in waves when you hit the pavement.
Screeching halt for some introduction ceremony

PC
Come, come down
Would you calm, calm down (dream lover)

C
Stuck like glue I am to you
If we could get back to where we used to
It's alright, is everything alright?
Baby I'm just fine

V2
Dream lover where've you been?
It's been a year since I've been counting
The day you said we'd meet again
Braving a crest of vitality (dream lover)

C2
Waiting, waiting by the phone
I wish that I would have known
It's alright; will it be alright?
I told you so

Faded lover come to me
Tell me you going to be
Everything, I want.

PC
Less is more forever more
I am not the one who won
I am not the one on the run
Track Name: Evil Eye
EVIL EYE

V
Honey honey
Tell me tell me
Make it easy
For me to want you back
And I won’t evil eye you
Satisfy you ‘til you tell me

C
I wanna die unto the sky
Your sacred smile my words in kind
Your faith beguil’d, our simple minds
And my evil eye

V2
Honey baby
Would you leave me
If falling was my only muscle memory?
Falling was my only muscle memory
Don’t evil eye me
Don’t evil...

C
I wanna die unto the sky
Your sacred smile my words in kind
Your faith beguil’d, our simple minds
And my evil...

Instrumental breakdown

C
I wanna die unto the sky
Your sacred smile my words in kind
Your faith beguil’d, our simple minds
And my evil eye
Track Name: Pretty Girls
PRETTY GIRLS

V
I know about lonely, I talk to myself
Try to be phony, it’s bad for my health

PC
That’s the way it goes
Calling it a night
Pretty girl wouldn’t look my way if I was on fire

C
Only pretty girls have no cares, oh why?
They don’t even notice i stare when they pass by
They just pass by
Someone tell me why?
V
I saved my money but I don’t know why
I have my money but I ain’t got your eye

PC
That’s the way it goes
Calling it a night
Pretty girl wouldn’t look my way thundering guitar

C
Only pretty girls have no cares, oh why?
They don’t even notice I stare when they pass by
They just pass by
Someone tell me why?

Instrumental Break

C
Only pretty girls have no cares, oh why?
They don’t even notice I stare when they pass by
They just pass by
Someone tell me why?
Track Name: Queen's Arms
QUEEN’S ARMS

V
I’ve been going everywhere
I don’t care
Shake me shake me everywhere and
I don’t care

C
Cause I’m taken from the queen
Taken from the queen
Taken from the queen’s arms
Taken from the queen

B
She’s under duress
She has no drugs

V2
Get away with everything
Get away with me
Ooooh

Taken from the queen
Taken from the queen
Taken from the queens arms
Taken from the queen

B
She’s under duress
She has no drugs

Take me back to 1991
Track Name: Jitterbug
HEY HEY HEY

V
I spy with my little eye
Little spy lurking the discolight

C
Eyes of gold, solid gold
Funky sole, I'm sold (hey hey hey)

V2
No clue what the fuck I’m doing here
Drain my spine and swallow all my fears

C
Cut a rug, jitterbug
I’m fond of you, oxford shoes

HEY HEY HEY

Instrumental break

V2
Miss DJ would you spin the record around
Speed it up, the beat goes on
Music stops here's a thought

C
Meet me, meet me someday
Meet me, meet me someday
Meet me, meet me someday
Meet me, meet me Sunday
Meet me, meet me Sunday
Meet me, meet me Sunday

HEY HEY HEY
Track Name: Hopefully Hopefully
V
Threw my flame into the fire with you
To deny my grand desire
With you I burn
With you, you

Instrumental break

V2
Threw my flame into the fire with you
To deny my grand desire
With you I burn
With you, you
Instrumental break

Piano bones and ribcage keys
Fiddling anatomy, divine melody
These weary eyes can hardly see all these damn lies
I don’t ever want to leave the bed, where is that cigarette?
Darkness ignites all the “lonely blues" and "I wish I knews"
I love you, I love you I do
