Track Name: 01 After
AFTER

Working hard
seems a waste of time
It ain’t mean a thing
We’re happy in our couch
Not worrying too much
Perspectives all gone
No income, no house, no job.

Anyway
It won’t work out well
There’s no more to say
our shiny clever brains
are useless again
left out in the yard
it’s clear that we won’t get far

And
We don’t care
What they’ll say
Fuck our brilliant futures
And it
May seem crap
But it’s just
What we’ll keep on doing

I just say
That we shouldn’t try
if we know we fail
we should relax and wait
get drunk and have fun
go out with our friends
spoil every night and day

And
if we die
It’s alright
Nothing could be better
As
We won`t have
To decide
what our lives will be after

After after after…
Track Name: 02 Lighthouse
LIGHT-HOUSE

I would like to leave this town
And move into a light-house (a light-house)
Leave the days and hours go by
Dream out and smell the ocean (the ocean).

If I’m are bored I’ll play guitar
I will dance around
Write long letters (long letters)
Every night I’ll watch the stars
Storms and winds blow wild
from my lantern.

And I
will never go back
I won’t miss a thing
of this lousy life
of mine

I just want to go right back
I’m fed up with this light-house (this light-house)
Every day is just the same
Surrounded by the ocean (surrounded by the ocean)

I just talk aloud and pray
And wave the distant planes
Watch your pictures (your pictures)
Blame the choices that I made
Hate the way I left
in the meantime

And why
No one slapped my face
and saved me from myself
and all my mistakes
again
Track Name: 03 Happy for a while
NEARLY HAPPY FOR A WHILE

I would plan all those weekends in the snow
It really doesn’t matter now
We would kiss in the morning by the door
It really doesn’t matter now
You would cross the whole country in your car
Not really. We won’t take a vow.
I would laugh at the funny way you dance
It’s silly. Doesn’t matter now

O ooo o o oo o o oo oo o o o
O ooo o o oo o o oo oo o o o

We would spend every summer in that house
just dreaming. Now is getting down.
We would go to the bar to see the match
not feeling. Doesn’t matter how –
You would play videogames while I would knit
I would wake up at night to hear you breathe sleep
We would be nearly happy for a while
And really, doesn’t matter now

O ooo o o oo o o oo oo o o o
O ooo o o oo o o oo oo o o o
O ooo o o oo o if it doesn´t matter . No
O ooo o o oo o o did it really matter?
I don’t know

It seems
there’s no forever
and
you say
there’s no together
Now (ao ao ao ao ao ao)
This love
Is gone
Wherever
My Oh really oh my

O ooo o o oo o o oo oo o o o
O ooo o o oo o o oo oo o o o
O ooo o o oo o if it doesn´t matter No
O ooo o o oo o o oo oo o o o did it really matter? I don’t

We would be nearly happy for a while
But it really doesn’t matter now
Track Name: 04 She can't dance
SHE CAN'T DANCE

Her job’s so great
That it sucks
She reads French books
In the park
Her hair’s always perfect
Does not bite her nails
Her boyfriend is trendy
So her friends

She runs five miles
Every night
She’s always so nice
To her mum
She’s been twice to Tokyo
And lived in New York
She’s half vegetarian

Thank god
That she cannot dance
Papapararapapararapapararapapara
Papapararapapararapapararapapara
No, she cannot dance

Her phone would not
Stop to ring
She can surf and
plays the violin
She fancies b-movies
and second hand clothes
Her jokes are so funny

Thank god
That she cannot dance
Papapararapapararapapararapapara
Papapararapapararapapararapapara
No, she cannot dance
