Four songs of mine, two old, two new
Recorded and produced in a DIY fashion

Track Name: Everything She Knew
I'm leaving home now
Don't know when I'll try and get back
I'm gonna roam now
'Might find myself in a year or two

I wanna tell you, that I'm awfully fond of the way
You treat me night and day
Just wanted to show you, that I'm better on my own
Truly better off on my own

I met some friends here
Sure hope they don't pull one on me
Talk a lot about nature
And how most people should try and be free

I feel like crying, but I'm awfully fond of the way
You treat me night and day
Just wanted to show you, that I'm better off on my own
Truly better off on my own

I got into some trouble with the law
I wrote you, but you still didn't call
So maybe, when they say I'm ready
I won't feel so adventurous at all

I promise, I promise, I promise, I promise
Doo-doo doo
Track Name: I'll Be
I'm staring into the looking glass
And all I can see is your smile
I'll be waiting for my darling
I'll be waiting for a while

Your sundial sits on my mantelpiece
I turn to it seven times a day
I'll be waiting for my darling
And then I'll be on my way

A white horse gallops in your garden house
Tells me I've gone insane
But I love you and I know not of much
More inside my brain

When it's cold outside we call to each other
Things seem clearer, don't they?

I'm looking into that gallant, gallant place
I see you standing all alone
I'll be waiting for my darling
I'll be taking you back home

I'm looking into the looking glass
And all I can see is your soul
I'll be waiting for my darling
I'll be true I hope you know

When it's cold outside we call to each other
Nobody knows
Things seem clearer, don't they?
Track Name: Happy
I'm so happy, happy I could cry
Since you set foot through my door
Dearest gracious, look at what I've done
Now I want to be invisible

Send a street car, prison break
Beat them creeps in, one by one
That's no mistake

I need to go
I just want to be alone
I need to get back
I just wanna get back home

I'm so happy, feel like burning up
Lock myself in your garage
Tried to straighten out, but now all you do is run
I really want to be invisible

See that robot, knocking at my door?
Helps me figure out, exactly what I'm dying for

I need to get back
I just want to be alone
I need to get back
I just wanna go back home
I need to get back
I just want to be alone

Just got to get back to where I'm coming from

(instrumental break)

I met a violent girl
I met a violent girl..
