Track Name: Timeshare Romance
I know my ways are unorthodox, but honey I got too much love
to be settling down or waiting for the one
I’m twenty-one and I like to rush in cause darling that’s the fun of it
so four times a year, let’s fall in love
We’ll have a Timeshare Romance
when we’re in the same town
a Timeshare Romance
cuz I can’t settle down
a Timeshare Romance
and it’s all understood- we’ll leave out all the fighting and get down to the goods
Now I could love a philosopher, comedian, photographer,
an artist or musician, or a man good in the kitchen,
but it seems to me it ends the same-
every time we’re afraid to change
but if we know it’s coming, it might ease the pain
We’ll have a Timeshare Romance
when we’re in the same town
a Timeshare Romance
cuz I can’t settle down
a Timeshare Romance
and it’s all understood- we’ll leave out all the fighting and get down to the goods
But the truth is I always seem to find myself alone
with only the comfort of numbers filling up my phone
Well there must be a man who is all of these things,
but once I find him I’ll have to give up all my flings…… (Forget it!)
We’ll have a Timeshare Romance
when we’re in the same town
a Timeshare Romance
cuz I can’t settle down
a Timeshare Romance
and it’s all understood- we’ll leave out all the fighting and get down to the goods
Track Name: Tickle Train
Here comes the tickle train
next stop is where you lay
cuz I love to see your smiling face
even if it’s only for the next four days
Well, baby-baby, I can’t call you baby
cuz you believe in Jesus and I believe in may be’s
like- may be you’ll see that you might like to be
out of the harbor and sailing the sea
so here comes the tickle train now (chug-uh’s)…
It could take you to a destination
far beyond expectation
if you’d like to see just pull back the curtain
and take a moment to breathe, because I
loved it when you picked me up,
ran across the highway and dropped me in the mud
I wiped my shoes on your jeans
so when you finally washed them you had to think of me… Well
here comes the tickle train now (chug-uh’s)…
I hope when this song reaches your ears
you won’t be offended or think I’m weird
it’s just a simple homage to the short time we had
even if it’s corny, I know it made you laugh
here comes the tickle train now (chug-uh’s)…
Track Name: Hindsight (Lonely Girl)
Well I have been a lonely girl for so long I can’t see
why anyone would want a girl as lonely as me
See, I’ve been staying out and drinking booze
until memory’s obsolete
and I can’t even bare witness to
my own menagerie
until I wake up cold and sick
praying that I could undo what I did
even if I don’t know what that was at all
but please don’t judge me for in due time
I won’t bury my heart in hindsight
and may be he could love a lonely girl
Then I won’t wake up cold and sick
Instead I’ll remember the touch of his lips
and have him think I’ve really got it together
Because when I do I’m quite the joy
and he’d be such the lucky boy
to have found a girl as lonely as me
because I would love him deeply, madly, truly.
Track Name: Waking Nightmares
I swear I’ve cried a thousand tears
behind closed doors alone this year
Be smart now, girl, you must stay strong
this sorrow will not last for long
Everyone dreams without sleeping
but waking nightmares can creep in
breaking the clay you’ve made from dust
adhering fear to your new cuts
Don’t be afraid of being cut down
this forest is full of a lack of sound
Branches sway, they play to the rhythm
find your roots before the division of the schism sets in
Mother Earth- she gave you sweet life
from the heavens, took the stars for your eyes
She gave you skin so you could choose to swim
either way, Father Time’s got your number pinned
to the sins that you have created
say “Only God can alleviate them!”
but God’s too busy fighting these wars
tell me, who’s chosen now? And who should be scorned?
Well, well,
Presidents and Queens alike
have to say that they fight “The Good Fight”
but as a young person in this day and age
I know not to trust, but I know how to pray
And I swear we’ve cried a thousand tears
behind closed doors alone this year
Be smart now children, we must stay strong
this sorrow will not last for long
Track Name: Penguin Island
If you want to get away to my island
let’s just build a bitchin’ boat and we’d be stylin’
(stylin’, to my island)
There’d be lots of penguins cuz I always wanted one
you could get whatever you want! As long as it don’t eat penguins…
(“oh”s)
Come with me, we’ll sail the sea just drifting ‘till we hit dry land
If it storms and you get scared well don’t you worry- hold my hand
Sittin’ in the shade eatin’ mangos, drinkin’ coconuts-
We could have a dance party with only the two of us!
(dance party, just you and me)
We could train the animals like Swiss Family Robinson
The parrot- she could open beers and monkey could carry ‘em
(um…. Please get me one?)
Come with me, we’ll sail the sea just drifting ‘till we hit dry land
If it storms and you get scared well don’t you worry- hold my hand
And we’ll be stylin’
to my island
We’ll have a dance party
just you and me
on Penguin Island
