Love and War 03:22
Love and War Don't detonate me Don't serenade me Don't complicate me, no It takes investigating And some penetrating It takes a lot to makes things whole To all the boys who've loved before To all the girls who've wanted more To all of us who knew the score No war, no more, no war You can't consecrate me Stop me from obfuscating Don't sneak up on me, no Oh lord, what a terrible liar The world was when so young You got to say ah, you got to spit it out, you got to make no sense To all the boys who've loved before To all the girls who've wanted more To all of us who knew the score No war, no more, no war To all the boys who've loved before To all the girls who've wanted more To all of us who knew the score No war, no more, no war To all the boys who've loved before To all the girls who've wanted more To all of us who knew the score Love and war, love and war, love and war

The Dreamer's Song It all comes down to dreaming on the starling It felt like a heart in disguise You found a way to balance everything on Broadway Before the sun would rise The morning sleep inside so warm A little baby made to curl the day The sidewalk slowly disappeared and The mouth of heaven opened wide In the dreamer's song In the dreamer's song Don't walk away, don't hesitate, Don't finally leave the world so frightening In the dreamer's song It all comes down to seeing what you don't see A little bit of love on the side The way to balance is knowing what you can't be And bringing it along for the ride The morning sees itself so cold You, little baby, you're the only way Go and make the sidewalk reappear and Burst the heart, you're alive In the dreamer's song In the dreamer's song Don't walk away, don't hesitate, Don't suddenly leave the world so frightening In the dreamer's song In the dreamer's song In the dreamer's song Don't walk away, don't hesitate, Don't suddenly leave the world so frightening In the dreamer's song

In the Light 06:03
In the Light Angel hears him as he walks on down the hallway She notices his gait and coming She thinks about the way the shimmy is exciting And the light that she finds so funny In the light, she finds him funny In the dark, she thinks it's love In the light, she finds him funny In the dark, she thinks it's love All around little miracles in the woodshop Every morning is the warning of the final resuscitating This hypothetical is in no way exploding Like a fire reaching higher, like a liar, that man up on the wire In the light, she finds him funny In the dark, she thinks it's love In the light, she finds him funny In the dark, she thinks it's love In the light, she finds him funny In the dark, she thinks it's love In the light, she finds him funny In the dark, she thinks it's love In the light, she finds him funny In the dark, she thinks it's love oh...oh...oh...oh Oh, oh, oh Oh, oh, oh Oh, oh, oh Oh, oh

Memoir 05:57
Memoir You thought you could stay up for a while and write about it You thought you could stay new You thought you could transform everything that you touched You liked to think it through You thought you could sell pineapples to oranges And poetry too You thought the plan was simple when you started now Before it became true Is this love Is this love Is this love Is this love You thought you checked your catalog of smiles To find the right one to show them You thought this feeling would stay young That you'd never crawl out of it You said you like to spin in circles Until you fall down So why did you go and tell all my friends you like to spin in circles But you never fall down Is this love Is this love Is this love Is this love And every single passage Leads back to this It's the memory, it's the question That never leaves my head Is this love Is this love Is this love Is this love
