Track Name: Cutter Street
In the end we go insane
When we find our common ground
And what we need, we take in vain
You should have thrown that bottle down

And on my way down the stairs
I thought of desire
And what it means for us in the morning
And it is killing you, and it is killing me
But everything waits for Athena

What you want is not what you'll get
When your love is in your head
Well,look out now, you fucked your friend
And you can smell it on your hand

And on my way down the stairs
I thought of desire
And what it means for us in the morning
And it is killing you, and it is killing me
But everything waits for Athena

"Are you OK?" she said.
Well, I just can't talk about that.
"Are you OK?" she said
I just can't talk about that

It's heavy here on Cutter Street
You can feel it when you breath

Because I'm not you and you're not me
I don't think that we were healed
And if it's too much, then you should leave
With your diamonds and your pretty things

And on my way down the stairs
I thought of desire
And what it means for us in the morning
And it is killing you, and it is killing me
But everything waits for Athena

It is killing you, and it is killing me
But everything waits for Athena
Track Name: Come at Me Gently
So I drove to the coast
Thinking this time I'll make the most of this
Yes I alone, so won't you come at me gently?
Just come at me gently

I don't like standing in your way
Or taking back the things I say when I am drunk
So, if I smile, won't you come at me gently?
Just come at me gently, and I'll try

'Cause I am tired
Of the bodies and the pills
And I am tired
Of the different windowsills
And I am tired
Of the bottles and the bills
And the doctors and refills
And the drinking when you're not next to me

But you've got such a pretty face
And this bourbon-ginger tastes just as it should
So, let's make the most of it, but come at me gently
Just come at me gently

'Cause I am balanced on this ledge
And if you are careful, you'll catch me in the air
But I scare easy so please come at me gently
Just come at me gently, and I'll try

'Cause I am tired
Of these cities all alone
And I am tired
Of what you said when you got home
And I am tired
Of always living what I've known
And always doubting that I have grown
And working through the worst of everything

Take some chance that I might mean it
Take some chance that I might mean it
Take some chance that I might mean it
Track Name: Happiness
I pulled your ticket from the well
Through the skylight where you fell
And you knew I'd be leaving in the morning
But in my mind I am still with you

Then I heard someone say that I might want some happiness
And I look for the reason I could not relate
I can stand on the steps in the rain and just wait for us
Bleeding the need to be some other place

Bar light breaks across your face
I die with secrets that I make
So, I needed to tell you
That I hope you'll be around

And I am getting the feeling that I have got to get out of here
All these faces around me are looking the same
And that boy in the shadows will always be standing there
With his complex smile and his simple grace

And he'll keep making his mistakes
And he said he thought he needed a break
But at night when he is sleeping
Just lying there breathing
Just thinking of leaving
He still shakes

Grab coffee from the street
Sleep with all the people that you meet
And I think that I will miss you
So, please say your name

When I drink you home, it's red
So, I'll bring the bottle to my bed
Track Name: Piece of My Mind
I am leaving out of New York City today
Like so many times before I've gone away
From my home
But I can't be alone in Midtown

And these bathroom conversations 'till day breaks
They leave me wondering if I should make another mistake
'Cause a touch isn't much
But it's something

I lost a little piece of my mind and a little piece of my life
Just to reach you
And I lost a little pride in my eye and too much of my time
Just to meet you half way
And the simple little things in our life that will lead us back home
In the end will just remind us how far we've gone

I will leave just a piece of me until the morning
The rest I will give to you and to learning
But I, babe, am doing fine
No, I'm not lying

I will break all of my own rules just to fuck you
'Cause at least just for tonight I can feel new
But hey, I can't really say
I'm not guilty

I lost a little piece of my mind and a little piece of my life
Just to reach you
And I lost a little pride in my eye and too much of my time
Just to meet you half way
And the simple little things in our life that will lead us back home
In the end will just remind us how far we've gone

My coffee is getting cold and I'm not listening
To my friends when they try to tell me that I am missing
The fun, but it is never fun
To be drowning

Three letters and a question were spoken
I suppose that everybody here is broken
And this time isn't really mine
And it isn't really yours

I lost a little piece of my mind and a piece of my life
Just to reach you
And I lost a little pride in my eye and too much of my time
Just to meet you half way
And the simple little things in our life that will lead us back home
In the end will just remind us how far we've gone
Track Name: Late July
I don't want you to tell me I'm a fool
If I want to break the golden rule
'Cause my back's to the wall and I'm not used to sleeping alone
If you want to say I'm a stranger, well, then go on

I've got my mind in a teacup in Berlin
Where all my time was spent without my friends
'Cause I love where the streets are people with bottles in hands
And if you want to say that I'm crazy, I'd understand

I've got a glass of water near my bed
But I'll drink your body there instead
I've got my stack of books and my big black boots
I swear that they picked me - I didn't really choose

We'll take a trip
To the land we all came from
Though I must admit
It probably will be tough
To know that you missed something that might have kept you alive
And the ones the you loved didn't get enough of your time

I've got another picture in my hand
That shows me now to every thing I am
I hope you know I meant just what I said
Of everything I saw, you were the best

My heart is moving faster than the time
But I am moving slower in my mind
'Cause it is stuck with you in late July
Under your little window, in your eyes

When I said that I knew, and you said you did too
I thought that I found somebody who
Wanted for me what I wanted for them
Instead what I got was not even a friend

I want you to see what you're doing to me
I want you to be what you wanted to be
But I can't be alive for anymore time
If what I will get won't ever be right
And it will never be right with you

It will never be right with you
It will never be right with you
