    1. I Hope You Taste Good

    Could you please wear something blue?
    I promise I’m there if you are too
    I hope you taste good ’cause I have had few
    Bad ones they were hard to chew

    How about we would first have some wine?
    So we are relaxed once I start to dine

    How do you mean you don’t feel so fine?
    That’s ok to me let’s not eat you this time

     

    2. When I Make a Sound

    When I make a sound
    You follow it
    You’re in my closet
    Or under my bed
    I can hear you only when I make a sound
    I’ll never find you
    You have the best hide

    Words that are loud
    but I can’t hear them
    You have a really deep voice
    Someone would shout
    but I can’t do that
    Just because I am too scared

    I will keep quiet
    So that I can hear
    You make a mistake
    but you never make
    I can hear you only
    When I make a sound
    I’ll never find you
    You have the best hide

     

    3. Into the Blind

    I feel you so near
    I can hear so clear
    I see shadows
    Dancing in the park
    There are balloons
    Twirling in the air
    I hear them rise
    Up, high

    I will slide
    Into blindness
    Describe
    Me the sky
    As I slide
    There’s no light
    Please describe
    Me the life

    My ears are alert
    And I can hear you flirt
    Even though you’re just
    Smiling at me
    I know where you are
    And it’s never far
    You keep me safe
    From the dark

     

    4. In My Dreams

    First dream:
    You have too many teeth
    When you smile you look scary
    But the thing is you smile at me
    And I feel like you love me

    Second dream:
    Even more unreal
    You speak perfect swahili
    “Abend schmubend liebendlich”
    But I feel like you love me

    I see you in my dreams
    I woke up you are real
    How can this be
    I woke up you are real

    Third dream:
    You offer your key
    I want it but it is heavy
    Weighs more than 3 TV’s
    But I feel like you love me

    Another dream:
    You are stuck in a tree
    I climb there, we drink blue tea
    We live there eternally
    And I feel like you love me

     

    5. Harmless

    You want to tell me something
    it can’t be told in here
    we might as well be holding hands
    as we run behind the building

    i don’t say it out loud
    have you any idea
    why are you talking to me
    don’t you know how gorgeous you are

    as I leave
    as we part
    I glance back
    look across the road
    see you there
    and go home
    with my own

    I’m playing with fire
    careful not to burn
    I hope I know what I’m doing
    that I’ll do the right thing

     

    6. Imaginary Boyfriend

    He is perfect and I always know what he’s about to say next
    We have these ridiculously long discussions it’s the best
    I tell him he’s mine and he tells me I’m his for end of times
    Never apart we go everywhere together, we’re as one cause

    He lives in my head
    A one-room apartment in my brain
    Bedroom in my frontal lobe
    He’s alive in my mind

    He is always there for me and knows just what to say when I’m sad
    When we go to the movies we get two for the price of one
    He eats literally nothing, he’s really cheap to support
    I don’t want to even imagine what life would be if he was real

    Imaginary boyfriend
    He’s all I have and he’s all I need
    Imaginary boyfriend
    Don’t try to steal him, cause I will know
    Imaginary boyfriend
    He’s father material and a dream son in law
    Imaginary boyfriend
    Do get to know his brother, he’s great, too
    Imaginary boyfriend
    Amazing in bed, always satisfies me
    Imaginary boyfriend
    Never annoys me and always does what I want to do
    Better than all,
    Better than real

     

    7. Eater-Feeder

    I’m an eater, here’s my feeder
    We have this amazing symbiosis
    You’re the loser, I’m the winner
    He’s the main course of my dinner
    We have this amazing symbiosis
    Oh boy he’s just a beginner

    You are beautiful
    Oh my love, you are
    Far too beautiful
    That’s why I must go

     

    8. Soundtrack For Obsession

    I looked for you
    In the crowd
    I tried to find your face
    but all the other people
    who had your haircut
    were just other people
    with your haircut
    I had nothing to say to you
    but I wanted to talk and talk and talk
    the whole night through

    somehow there is
    a strange reaction
    your girlfriend has
    a stupid name
    but i see the attraction

    you mean to me
    more than you know
    you say it would take days
    to tell me just how beautiful
    I truly am
    this time it’s what I let you
    get away with

    I can’t concentrate
    with you around
    for some time you’ve taken up
    all the space in my brain

    you say you have
    gained a few pounds
    I say that I don’t notice
    when actually I don’t mind
    s’long as you’re here
    we only have ’til morning
    and I might wake up

     

    9. Colin

    Why do I live in a city this big?
    Too many places and too many choices
    But I’ll run and I’ll run and I’ll run
    But why do I live in a city this big?
    (I’ll find you)

    You could be gone
    Disappeared somewhere here
    You’re all I want
    My reaction was just fear

    Why the red light, there’s no time
    So many people and so many voices
    But I’ll run and I’ll run and I’ll run
    But why the red light, there’s no time
    (I’ll find you)

    Stop and breathe
    One minute here and then I’ll go

    Why am I not as fit as that jogging girl?
    I’m sure she would have found you sooner than me
    But I’ll run and I’ll run and I’ll run
    But why am I not as fit as that jogging girl?

     

    10. OK

    I cleaned the house today
    In case you wanted to stay
    Bad stains on the kitchen floor
    Frozen blueberries

    I took a photo of myself, I look OK
    You called me just the other day
    This could be great

    I drove last night all by myself on motorway
    I feel quite good about myself
    Perhaps everything is ok

    You called me just the other day
    This could be great
    We didn’t have a thing to say but it’s OK

    I think I can do anything and if I can’t then it’s OK

    You say: “Of course I want to stay,
    can I stay and stay and stay, OK?”

     

    11. Five Years

    I’m gonne leave you now but don’t worry honey cause it’s gonna be alright
    I wasn’t right for you and you will find someone new who will treat you good
    Remember the time when I was pissed and you were right,
    I shouldn’t have got in to that fight
    I will leave you be and move far far out of here and you will be just fine

    Cause in five years time
    You’ll be a vet and I will be dead
    In five years time
    You’ll be a vet and I will be oh so dead

    You said you wanted children and I told you I could hate them, I might bite them
    You said you want to marry, I got frightened so I went and slept with Mary
    Remember when I took your dad’s car and was high,
    I could had just killed us there
    After that you said that you would leave me, but you couldn’t, so I’ll do it for you

    Dead
    Dead
    Dead
    Dead

    But do not worry it will be just fine
    Do not worry it will be alright
    Don’t worry, honey, it will be alright
    Do not worry, you will be just fine

    Cause in five year time
    You’ll be a vet, there will be no regret
    In five years time
    You’ll have a life that will include a wife
    Wife
    Wife
    Wife
    Wife

     

    12. On The Run

    I am the false moment in the sun
    In apartment A21
    With a crisp white shirt and clean white sheets
    the other lies and the other cheats

    And just like that I’m on the run

    I admire your complexion
    your soft skin shining in the sun
    I want to touch but you’d break
    the hours go by I won’t wake you up

    And just like that I’m on the run

    My thoughts run wild
    but I’m letting them
    plans open wide
    but I’m getting them
    done some day
    now I’m setting them aside
    so I can see
    where I’m heading

    Them boys mess my head
    now I fell for you
    I don’t sing out loud
    how I feel for you
    maybe everyone else
    apart from you
    can see that you make me feel a fool

    I still try to turn things in my head
    around into something they’re not
    No matter how I dress it up
    it happened and it’s my only regret

    And just like that I’m on the run
