Track Name: She Never Told Me
it's monday night and i'm drunk again
last night was quite the bender
thanks for coming out my friend
i'm sorry for what i said, what i did

i tried to be quiet, i tried to be kind
but in the end i was left behind
i don't blame you, i would've thrown myself out

it's monday night and my eyes are red
and these drinks aren't helping any
on the couch, swimming in my head
are little situations i'd never get into

i saw her last night, on the dance floor
with some guy who looked forty-four
and she looked happy, and i looked the other way

she never told me i had to find out someday
she never told me i had to find out someday

it's tuesday night and i'm drunk again
i had to borrow from a money lender
and now i owe some interest, man
i can't possibly be in so much debt

and she's at home now, with her lover
doing things that are not above her
the thought of it makes me want to drink again

chorus

and why should she need to tell me? i'm a grown up man
why have i still got these feelings i don't understand
so she's dating a big fat geezer that don't make it any easier
what the hell is wrong with me?

it's wednesday night and i'm drunk again
i swear this'll be the last one
and then i'm off to bed i said
i'm gonna sleep it off, gonna squash it dead

so she's feeling pretty good now
well that's more than i'll allow
pretty baby you'll come back my way

chorus x2
Track Name: Singing My Song
five at a time
boil together words
until they rhyme
my instincts in crime
make me the perfect candidate

singing my song
i hope i don't go on too long

i'm in a bind
i got a certain melody
in my mind
but i can't find
any notes to hold the weight

chorus

flags and stems
sixteenth notes bend
to my whim
when i get a gem
let's hope it'll translate

chorus
Track Name: Nothing Less (The King's Conquest)
nothing less than perfection for me
i know where i'm going
and what i'm going to be

nothing less than all i see
is the kingdom i want
is the kingdom i need

and you will fall by my sword
you, you babbling horde
and i will rest surrounded
by your bones

i was born with the gods in my blood
descended from noah, held aloft from the flood

standing here, armor a-shine
i'll slice off your heads
and preserve them in brine

and you will fall by my sword
you, you babbling horde
and i will rest surrounded
by your bones

find the wood, burn the pyre
haul the dead on the fire
search the trees for runaways
here begins my reign

nothing less than perfection for me
i've built up an empire
on my way to the sea

nothing less than the world i decree
you'll kneel at my boots
you'll wash my bare feet

and you will fall by my sword
you, you babbling horde
and i will rest surrounded
by your bones
Track Name: Bird Song
fly away birdie
won't you go back home
you cannot stay here
be careful where you
want to roam

fly away birdie
won't you come back home
your wings will save you
but still you perch
upon the loam
Track Name: Song for Summer
this car is not a convertible but i want to be
i want to drive down the interstate with my head in the trees

i see, through a window cracked by stones
a girl sitting all alone is she the one i'm dreaming of
i got a seat for a passenger
oh god i hope it's her if it's not then i won't drive anymore

this car is quite unreliable but i want it to be
it never wants to cooperate it never wants to agree

i see, in a midnight full moon glow
a girl sitting all alone is she the answer to my prayers
and if i stop on the median
will she hop right in and then will we drive off into the sunset, oh

when i'm driving in my car
i can't see the road for anything
at all cause i'm too busy looking for you

short inst [intro]

i thought i'd drive for eternity, that's how i want it to be
my windows catching condensation, and now i cannot see

and as the night arrives at last
i see i'm running out of gas so i pull over beside you
i wanna wipe away your tears
i wanna quiet all your fears i wanna do it but i can't
cause this is all a dream, but

chorus

these roads keep going on forever
and i never thought i would
meet a girl who'd haunt my dreams
like you could

chorus quiet
chorus regular
chorus LOUD!
intro is outro
