Track Name: CockRoach
CockRoach

I spent today in a blur
I was thinking about her
And wishing that I had never, ever left your side
If I’d held you close, would it’ve been me you’d chose?
Or would I still be that girl on the other side of the world?
I don’t know who she is, but I know where she’s from
At least now I know just what is going on
(but she’s clearly not the one)
And all these thoughts in my head will stay in my head
It’s better off that way

Oh! Oh! Ah-oh! Oh! Oh! Ah-oh!
As for planting kisses, well you reap what you sow
Oh! Oh! Ah-oh! Oh! Oh! Ah-oh!
Well, I don’t care what she says… I have to let you know

I spent today in a whirl
I was chasing the gold
So unattainable, shiny, unforgettable
You got down on one knee
She’ll be walking down the aisle
You’ll be waiting at the end
& I’ll be trying hard to smile
I hope you made the right choice,
That we will be more than scars
We are not normal people
We do not have normal hearts
Yet these thoughts I cannot share,
to ask you, or to compare
I’ll keep them in my head,
Not even mutter them under my breath.

Oh! Oh! Ah-oh! Oh! Oh! Ah-oh!
As for planting kisses, well you reap what you sow
Oh! Oh! Ah-oh! Oh! Oh! Ah-oh!
Well, I don’t care what she says… I have to let you know

I’ve got something to tell you,
Embarrassing, but it’s true
I loved you back then, and I still do
Sophie calls me the rainbow chaser
Is it too late to tell you?
When the sky arches red to blue
I loved you back then, and I still do
Sophie calls me the rainbow chaser
Track Name: 24 Blues
24 Blues

Where in the world are you going?
Where in the world are your shoes?
There, where the bedclothes are blowing
They soothe your 24 blues

There you go!
Under blankets made of snow
When the raindrops hit the canvas
Does your forehead touch your toes?
You run faster in the saffron
See the spiders, try to catch one
It’s a volcanic disaster
But you know the hills won’t intervene
There you go!
Smashing teacups with a stone
Throw the flash back at the camera
So it can’t erase your soul
You’re a solitary soldier
Wartime colours on your shoulder
Save that song for when you’re older
Coz you know the hills won’t intervene

Where in the world are you going?
Snap dragons clap at your heels
Follow the steps of Grandfathers
Clock up the hours in your sleeves

There you go!
Where the wild bluebells grow
Where the water runs down mountainsides
And forest fireflies glow
Skimming stones into the sunset
Go too far and get your feet wet
It’s a moment you won’t forget
When you know the hills won’t intervene
There you go!
Chasing pythons down the road
Throwing apples at the treetops
But you can’t undo the fall
Flying kites on empty runways
Wear sunglasses on a Sunday
Beg the landscape for a fun day
But you know the hills won’t intervene
You’re a minnow swimming upstream, upstream, upstream
The hills won’t intervene
Track Name: Hedgehog
Hedgehog

Oh my love, you close your eyes and you lay down your weary head
And you rest away the restlessness in your four-poster bed
When your head is spinning circles, and your mind is seeking sleep,
You collapse at last exhausted, as the dawning lightness creeps

I’ll be yours and you’ll be mine,
We’ll stay inside ‘til the summertime

Oh my love, we live today and take tomorrow in our hands
And you say to me, “I’m yours” and that’s one thing I understand
You were made to live for love, to hibernate on silken sheets
To surrender to the silence, feel the quickening of heartbeats

I’ll be yours and you’ll be mine,
We’ll stay inside ‘til the summertime
I’ll be yours and you’ll be mine,
and we’ll stay inside while the world skates on by
Track Name: Laisse Le Chick Habit
Laisse Le Chick Habit

Laisse tomber les filles
Laisse tomber les filles
Un jour c'est toi qu'on laissera
Laisse tomber les filles
Laisse tomber les filles
Un jour c'est toi qui pleureras

Oui, j'ai pleuré mais ce jour-là
Non, je ne pleurerai pas, non je ne pleurerai pas

Hang up the chick habit
Hang it up, daddy,
or you'll be alone in a quick
Hang up the chick habit
Hang it up, daddy,
or you'll never get another fix

I’m telling you it's not a trick
Pay attention, don't be thick
or you're liable to get licked

You're gonna see the reason why
When they're spitting in your eye
They'll be spitting in your eye

La chance abandonne celui qui ne sait
Que laisser les coeurs blessés
Tu n'auras personne pour te consoler
Tu ne l'auras pas vole

Laisse tomber les filles
Laisse tomber les filles
Un jour c'est toi qu'on laissera
Laisse tomber les filles
Laisse tomber les filles
Un jour c'est toi qui pleureras

I’m telling you it's not a trick
Pay attention, don't be thick
or you're liable to get licked

You're gonna see the reason why
When they're spitting in your eye
They'll be spitting in your eye

Alors tu te rappelleras
Tout ce que je te dis là
Tout ce que je te dis là
Track Name: Take Your Castle To Spain
Take Your Castle To Spain

The first time that I met you, you told me that you like to pursue adventure
A touch of eccentricity, bright sparking electricity,
Like you meant it, asked me if I felt it, and yes, I felt it too
So I fell for you; a traveller, a shifter, the caravan inventor
And my icy heart began to thaw
But it was only a matter of time before

I know you’re going to be, leaving me
You’ll be packing up your bags, and you’ll be heading to the sea
And I know that you will go, I won’t tell you no,
Oh, Sam Alper, take your castle to Spain
[Uno! Dos! Tres! Flolo!]

So sometimes when we’re driving cars the wrong way down the roads,
we find a place to park up & picnic (p-p-picnic)
You open up the peapod wine, suddenly everything is fine
My glass is half full, you ask me if I want more, and yes, I think I do
And you pinned me up against a tree, said there’s no-one else but me,
And I melted in the forest fire,
But it was only a matter of time before

I know you’re going to be, leaving me
You’ll be packing up your bags, and you’ll be heading to the sea
And I know that you will go, I won’t tell you no,
Oh, Sam Alper, take your castle to Spain

Ah yeah, that’s how it’s gonna be.
