Track Name: Kitchen morning
Hey boy, what you're trying to say?
You made this cake? It's so delicious!
Yeah, I saw it in this magazine
It's number thirteen...
"I'm not superstitious,"
You said, and then, an awkward silence came around...

'Cause we never had been... on our own
And Red House Painters had just stopped playing
The kitchen walls were hanging out my thoughts...
'Cause we never had been... on our own
And Grant Lee Buffalo will start playing
The kitchen walls we're hanging out my thoughts… and yours.

Hey girl, what you're trying to say?
You have this record? I love it so much!
I have it since I was fourteen
His voice is great...
"Now, shall we have lunch?..."
You said, and then, an awkward silence came around...

'Cause we never had been... on our own
And Red House Painters had just stopped playing
The kitchen walls were hanging out my thoughts...
'Cause we never had been... on our own
And Grant Lee Buffalo will start playing
The kitchen walls we're hanging out my thoughts… and yours.

Hey lady, what you're trying to say?
We've done no harm, we were just kissing…
Yeah, 'cause I love him so much
And I love her too!
"I love her kissing!"
We said, and then, an awkward silence came around...
Track Name: Before there was a before
I always wanted
To make you smile
But you always told me
To wait a while

Things weren't going
Quite the way we've planned them
Before... before there was a before

You always wanted
To make me wonder
But I always told you
We'll go six feet under

Things weren't going
Quite the way we've planned them
Before... before there was a before

We always wanted
To make it better
But you always told us
Yeah, well, whatever

Things weren't going
Quite the way we've planned them
Before... before there was a before
Track Name: Snooker and curling
You're so strange, they say,
Cause we spend our days
Watching curling and snooker, on TV...

You're so strange, they say,
Cause we love to play
Board games, ‘cause I look at you and you at me...

Snooker on TV...

This is a song about
Snooker and curling
And about board games too...
This is a song about
How you look at me
And how I... look at you...

Snooker on TV...
Curling on TV...
Board games, you and me...

This is a song about
Snooker and curling
And about board games too...
This is a song about
How you look at me
And how I... look at you...
Track Name: Now it's too late
You could have loved me for my head
But now I'm taking pills instead
You could have loved me for my heart
But it's bitter from the start

Now you know it's too late
I don't have nothing left to ache
Even if you come from above
I don't have nothing left to love

You could have loved me for my eyes
The only thing that never cries
You could have loved me for my hands
They would have surely been your friends

I'm fine standing I don't wanna sit
You know I was caught up in the middle...
I don't really wanna hear your shit
Not even for a little... bit
