Track Name: Baker Man
Constantly, I find you show me the best of me.
Some friend you turned out to be.

Mr Baker Man ,
Paddy-cake bake me as fast as you can.
Cook me quick ‘cos I’m starting to understand,
Think I’m starting to understand.

Recently, I find we’re talking so openly,
Is that why you’re looking that way at me?

Mr Tailor man,
Patch me up, mister, as best as you can.
Cut me quick ‘cos I’m starting to understand.
Think I’m starting to understand.

Blind, blind. It’s blindingly clear things aren’t
Fine, fine. I’m finding we’re dead out of
Time, Time. The timing’s not great but that’s
Life.

Mr Tailor man,
Patch me up, mister, as best as you can.
Cut me quick ‘cos I’m starting to understand.
Think I’m starting to understand.
Think I'm starting to understand.
Track Name: Crystal Love
This must be that crystal kind of love -
something so fine that cuts so deep.
Track Name: Tend To Me (feat. Caitlin Park)
Tend to me,
My sweet,
And treat me oh so
Tenderly,
My dear,
And you will see that

I’ll be everything you want me to
Be my everywhere
My certainty
Ah-ya.

Fend for me,
My sweet,
And fight them off most
Viciously, my dear,
And just believe that

I’ll be the very thing you hoped I might
Be my everywhere,
My gravity.

Ah-ya.

You see, I’m so good on my own,
It’s just now, I feel tired to my bones,
So dear, won’t you hush now and
Just watch over me.

Tend to me,
My sweet,
And treat me oh so
Tenderly,
My dear,
And you will see that

I’ll be everything you want me to
Be my everywhere
My certainty
My gravity
So tenderly
Track Name: The Warning (feat. Sui Zhen)
Settle down, you’ll get what’s coming to you
Simmer down, you’ll get who’s coming for you

I guess you’ve never had to say to goodbye
I guess you’ve never seen it in his eyes

Pipe down, you’re gonna get your big show
Little clown, there’s something that you should know

He’s a better man
He’s a better man than you.
Track Name: She Loves Him (feat. Loene Carmen)
She loves him
She loves him

There she blows,
One look and pop goes her weasel,
It doesn’t show,
But she’s swinging the Grand Bamboozle.

She loves him.
She loves him.

I wish I may I wish I might
gnaw on something else tonight
‘Cos I’m not doing Oh So Well.

It’s breaking me.
Track Name: I'm So Mean (feat. Kristin Berardi)
Did you ever w-w-wonder why I never take your call?
Did you ever w-w-wonder why I keep you round at all?
Did you ever wonder why I try to make you feel so small?
There’s a reason.

I can see you just don’t get how someone could act that way
I can see you don’t know how I live with myself every day,
Honey, I can tell you, but you might not like what I say,
Cos it’s simple.

I’m so mean
I’m so mean
I’m so mean.

Maybe there’s some nasty thing my Daddy made me do,
Maybe I’m just scared of opening myself to you
If it makes you feel better, you can tell yourself that’s true,
But you’re lying.

i’m so mean
i’m so mean
i’m just mean

I’m so mean
I’m so mean
I’m just mean.

no justifying
no angels crying
Track Name: Shiver (feat. Melodie Nelson)
Shiver, hear the door, I shiver
see your face, I wither
Time for hitting the road.

Mother, oh how did I get so muddled?
where'd I find all this trouble?
got these shivering bones.

Lover, how'd get my world get so much thinner?
Why are the mornings so much meaner?
where'd it go?
where'd it go?
where'd I go?

oh lover, oh how did I get so muddled?
where'd I find all this trouble?
got these shivering bones.
got these shivering bones.
