Track Name: Words
I need someone who don't need words,
who knows what I mean without words,
I need someone who don't need words.

If words sung for you were currency here
we would be very rich together,
yeah we could look very good together
but a love song will never make a dollar.
you needed me to make you see exactly,
well I need someone who don't need words.

well I loved you, but you needed words,
and even though I wrote all my songs for you,
it didn't matter, 'cause I never said I love you.
well sometimes I can't say anything at all.
I need someone who don't need words
but I know that's not something I can ask for.

well I'll try and be really honest with you now
the way you tried to be, when I couldn't be bothered-
I love you like the moon loves the water
but it's hard to say anything at all.
Track Name: Proof
oh dream, please let me
just touch the fingertip
of your
breakless body

oh dream, please let me
just catch one burst of fire
from your
self-burning star

my joy always eats itself-
leaves me wearing the skin of myself.
I just put it on
to fool everyone

prove me to me
prove me to me
prove me to me, and I'll prove you to you
if that's what you need too.
Track Name: Changing My Ways
I'm changing my ways
I'm changing my ways
come tomorrow, when I wake-
tomorrow, I'll be changed.

going towards no place
going towards no place-
I'm going nowhere, except away
from here.
Track Name: A Way on a Wave
away from

from hostile feelings

well, nothing can bring you down
nothing can bring you down
but you'll end up down

you're the crest of a wave
and I can feel the spray
cool on my face
but it won't last long
Track Name: Already
what was is not
it is not me


what is there to say?
people go away.
everything will change
from how it is today.
