Track Name: Face I've Seen in Movies
This is a sad song for all those lonely people listening here
Hiding away in the crowd yet alone in their own world
And then there's a happy couple in love
I wanted that so badly for myself
But let me tell you, you can go through the motions
But you can't fake the emotions

I can imitate that face I've seen in movies
I can express my love in a perfect reprise but my darling,
You will never have my heart

This is a sad song for all those many people bored to the bone
Grinding through that age old legend that happiness is building a home
And then you'll see a solitary man or woman
So content in their own soul
I wanted that so badly for myself
But let me tell you, you can go through the motions
But you can't fake the emotions

I can imitate that face I've seen in movies
I can express my love in a perfect reprise but my darling,
You will never have my heart

I can kiss you softly, hand through your hair
Keeping quiet all my despair
My darling, you will never have my heart
Track Name: Oysters Everyday
I want to eat oysters everyday
And have a lovely abode by the seaside
I want to go for walks at my leisure
And have the sun always shine
I very much enjoy being by myself
Except those moments when I’m lonely
But I’m too lazy and awkward for dates
So you’ll find no one at my side

But I’m sick of singing about it, writing about it
Thinking about it, hearing it about it on the radio
Watching about it on the television when I’m feeling low
Reading about it on the novel I take on the bus in the morning
Knowing about it from my friends either stuck or feeling the glow
Living around it knowing it’s something I’m supposed to do
But if I can’t have you, you set the bar too high to settle for number two

Give me pleasure at my leisure
I want your love but on demand
You can make it green, mean, obscene
Because baby I know you’re good with your hands
And you know it’s a shame
Watching those miles turn into years
But still, I got this weird feeling about you boy
Because whenever you go you somehow make your way back to me here

But I’m sick of singing about it, writing about it,
Thinking about it. Blocking the airways with this silly song
With a picture of you in my mind
But baby, it went kind of wrong
I still see it all around, on those rare days when I venture outside
And I’m dreaming about it in my cold room on the prairies
I had a taste of it but you left too soon
There’s no second place no third place no participation prize.
I want you.
Track Name: One and Only
You think you might be the one and only
You think you might be an original
You never thought that there would be so many people
With whom you’ll have to fight for everything

From money to food to a seat on the train in the morning
From peace to love to work to a home
From vacations in Africa to tickets for your favorite show
Everything, everything must be won

You wake in the morning I hope you’re ready for another day
Of fight, fight, fight, but will you make your way
Through the debutantes, the crack heads, the socials climbers the tasers
Will you make your way in this city of a world?

Through the shopping malls, the high streets, the real estate agents the airports
The coffee shops, and the banks and boulangeries
Through the patriots, the puritans, the foreigners and the wildlife
Will you make your way in this city of a world?

And we fight, and we claw, and we beg, and we wither
And we mumble, and we choke, and we elbow our way
While they exaggerate, over analyze, breathe in, spit out
Anything and everything that gets in the way

And we fight
Track Name: Stacy, Tina, and Daphne
I had a cheap coffee in the waiting room today
It left me with a headache that lasted all afternoon
I had a mediocre morning because also in that waiting room
On the television they had on Fox News
But I was sat in that room, waiting boy
Because of you, because you see

I heard you slept with Stacy that week you were out of town
I heard that you and Tina got low that night I had that dreadful comedown
But I knew when I saw Daphne sign off with kisses on your facebook wall
I knew I ought to get myself to the clinic and you,
You better pray this is just a close call

I got these fabulous pills that I take everyday
So right now, I ain’t overly concerned about having no baby
And I have always had better things to do
For my soul than you
So many red flags from the start I blame heart
And I really try hard not to be so mad with you
But what can you do?
Deep down you know you so deserve this too
Because they told me

They said you slept with Stacy and she earned herself a noise complaint
But things broke down with Tina because you was lazy and she ain’t
Then I heard that you and Daphne got hot and sweaty every Thursday night
I knew I ought to get myself to the clinic
And you can get the fuck out of my life.
Track Name: Happy Alone
I hope you’re happy alone
I hope you go to bed smiling
That you don’t have to share at all
No one’s going to steal the sheets in the night
Or intrude on your side of the bed
It’s just you, it’s always been you inside your head

I hope the silence is kind
I hope you’re enjoying cheese after dinner with the finest wine
I hope that you don’t feel the emptiness I do
And I hope that wine’s a great vintage too

And it feels like you been wasting all of my time
Wondering who the next girl will be
Well darling fucking wait and see

I hope you’re happy alone
And getting good and used to that solitary feeling
Because you’re in this for the long haul
I like my man to be experience
But baby that shit you pulled that was devious
I never gave you a single reason
To say a god damn word to me that you weren’t really feeling

But I know between the credit cards, the bedroom and the blow
That you ain’t got no control
But how’d your good mama never tell you
It’s so tacky to be flashy and poor

I hope you’re happy alone
But my darling I would rather you not call me
But I wish the best for you
But no one’s going to be kissing you goodnight
Or sharing with you there morning light
But you don’t need my pity
You just need some insight

You been wasting all of your time on these silly things
Like you’re so deserving
Swaggering around forgetting the most important things
But I can’t wait to see if you figure it out in time for me

I hope you’re happy alone
But baby I don’t miss those games you play for such a tiny reward
You’ll continue to waste and ruin everything
And stand proud because you really think you’re winning
I hope you’re happy
I hope at least you’re happy alone
