Track Name: Shiny Llama
Verse 1
Do you ever stop and just imagine
Things that fate might spell?
Here we stand together in the moonlight
Everything goes still

Oh, I guess it's truee
Can't find another quite like you
No one else will do
Can't find another quite like you

Verse 2
Stare into your eyes
The problems disappear
For you I would fight off zombies
Don't you think that we're meant for more?

Track Name: Superchunk
Forget whatever’s been on your mind
Better company’s hard to find, yeah
Let’s leave the rest of the world behind

Verse 1
Hey Babe, What do you say?
There’s a time to hang around, and a time to play
I’ve seen that look before and it’s nothing new
What do you say to a pretty face that’s set on you?


Verse 2
And so the moment’s come that’s been in store
Not a lot to say we haven’t said before.
The words you’d like to hear I think I know,
What do you say to a pretty face that lets you go?

Oh, can’t you see,
It’s not about how good it could be?
I never doubted that we’d make it right,
Sometimes I wish that we could...

Track Name: You, Naked
Verse 1
Scrambled eggs, diablo
Heavy metal taco, which you ate
No ideas of your own
So you're acting macho, I see it all the time

But if you play it safe
If you play it safe, you're ok

Verse 2
Stuck in front of two roads
Knowing where the one goes and choosing it
Where did all the time go?
Saved it for tomorrow, it happens all the time

Chorus 1
Scared of another start in case it's
Barren on the other side
Waiting til the day arrives
When cannibals will eat you alive
They'll eat you up

Verse 3
Meant to help your friend
But you try, you lie, you forget, you're bringing me down
Couldn't stand your ground
Instead you just sold out like every other time

But if you wanna stay
If you wanna stay, you'll stay

Verse 4
Beating dead picasso
Putting on a big show, for everyone
Trying to keep it together
Meant to do it better, but you can't afford the time

Chorus 2
Standing on the edge of the stage, waiting
For someone else to call you name
Scared that everyone will find
Scared that everyone will find
You naked

Skate through life just satisfied

Chorus 3
Still you'll skate on by just thinking
There will always be more time
Hang out on the edge of life
Hang out on the edge of life
Hanging on the edge of a knife
It's kitten time
Track Name: Dark & Stormy
Verse 1
The shapes I'm seeing in the morning
Still think I see em in the night
What sort of current am I caught in?
Sea of gray, same in every light
The view is always the same, without reference it's hard to see change
And find a reason to keep hold of oars when they don't seem to move you whatever you do

If you tried,
to let it go
Would it change a thing?
Would it sink you?

What's a stroke, out at sea
Even a hundred won't change what you see, but you're not deterred
Spend your time just holding back the tide that pulls you boat
Or let it float on aimlessly

Verse 2
If I could even see the shoreline
I'd reach the land eventually
But since I cannot find direction
Why fight the waves when I could let them take me?


Chorus x2
Track Name: This Time Round
Verse 1
Been advised to, roll the other way
Even been fed, things I need to say
They tell me, I don't understand what I'm doing

Any other time I would agree
Never been much, worth fighting for to me
But you're something, something that I can't let be

This time round, won't let you down
Kiss goodbye, that kiss goodbye
Let's start it over, let's start it over

Verse 2
Can't erase the mistakes I made before
Things that were broken can't be restored
But I can't replace you, I've always needed more

So I'm asking, please don't walk away
Got enough left to build on if you stay
Let's start it over, love the way we should have loved
