Track Name: Aeroplane
I see red sky
I see red sky
I'll take an aeroplane
I'll never be the same
I see red sky

I feel the wind blow
I feel the wind blow
I'll sail the seven seas
No one will know me
I feel the wind blow

I hear the engine roar
I hear the engine roar
I'll put my pedal to the floor
I won't be me anymore
I hear the engine roar

But I can't leave you
Why can't I leave you?
The look in your eye....
Goodbye red sky
Track Name: Involved
If I said "I want you"
What would that incite you to do?
Say it with me -
"I wanna be involved with you"
Secret signals will betray
If you're privy to them anyway
So you show me -
You wanna be involved with me

Take me, take me, take me
For free

I sense a change of mood
Something sweet that you exude
Say it with me -
"I want to be involved with you"
Clasping and unclasping
This heart of mine is gasping
To be involved with you

Take me, take me, take me
For free

If you make another move
I won't be responsible for what i do
Don't muscle by, and then pretend
To catch my eye
You're no friend

If you make another move
I won't be responsible for what i do
Don't gently coax, and then recoil
Let's just go
Before we spoil....

I want you for myself
Myself

If I said "I want you"....
Track Name: Ghost Inside
I, I've got a ghost
I've got a ghost inside
And I can't figure out
Which way his morals lie

All I know is since I looked sideways
Underneath the palm trees
At that strange boy
Nothing has been going my way
I think the blue eyed bastard stole my
Joy

I, I've got a ghost
I've got a ghost inside
And I can't figure out
Which way his morals lie

All I know is since I let myself slide
Down under the canvas
With that strange boy
My heart keeps falling by the wayside
As if it thinks he's gonna come and make it
Right

He was the saddest soul
I'd ever seen
But he whispered that his love
Was evergreen
Now i'm carrying this hungry hex
Seems a high price to pay
For such lonely sex that
Stole my love away

I, I've got a ghost
I've got a ghost inside
And I can't figure out
Which way his morals lie

Curse that boy
Curse his eyes
Now I've got
A ghost inside...
Track Name: Lame Dog
Shaking on the curb he waits for you
Nobody knows where you've gone to
Lame Dog thinks this is a nasty place
But he's here because you said 'stay'
Stay!

You're in a bar with a business man
Tryna explain your business plan
It's your last chance in this crappy town
All he wants to know - how much to lie down?
Lie down

Sweetheart I promise you your time will come
But right now you've gotta bring your lame dog home

Maybe the cheap shot's the only way
To make progress in the world today
So you say if it will seal the deal
You'll follow him home and you'll happily heel
Heel.

Sweetheart I promise you your time will come
But right now you've gotta bring your lame dog home

He used you and left you like a fool
Crying and shaking on the same bar stool
Barman says "What's the world come to?
A lame dog outside says he belongs to you"
Track Name: Satin Shoulder
Satin shoulder
Made for looking over
Rest now
I vow
To fix it in the morning

Don't deny it
It felt right
Look, see
You're happy
But now tomorrow's dawning...

Morning mutiny
Why always do this to me
Ephemera
You filthy friend
I kiss you and you screw me

Bed's edge
Straightened out
Quiet rain
Slipping down my
Satin shoulder
Was made for looking over
Track Name: Kill For You
When you said "follow me"
And i did, willingly
Trailed your light round the world
Like a good little girl
I grew up in your arms
I grew strong on your charms
But I couldn't see
What you needed from me

My love is true
But I won't kill for you

Put the gun in my hand
And the words in my mouth
But I'll throw it down
And i'll spit them out
How will this ever work
How can we share a bed
When i need to create
And you won't rest til it's dead

My love is true
But I won't kill for you

Oh, when you take my hand
I don't know how much more i can stand
Oh, my love is true
But I won't
Kill for
Kill for you
Kill for
Kill for you

If I said that I was leaving
Would you accuse me of treason
Could you give me one good reason
To stay for the killing season
Is this all you believe in?

When you said "follow me"...
Track Name: My Dream of You
My dream
Of you
Was
Oh
So
Real

My dream
Of you
Lingered
All
Day

And gave me
This
Feeling
Of wanting
You
In a way
That cannot
That cannot be

In my dream
Of you
We were
Free
To
Be

And there was
No
Taboo
In
My
Dream
Of
You......
Track Name: Chameleon Blues
Chameleon Blues
Chameleon Blues
You break
My heart

I'm buried
Like a seed
Inside
Of me
While you use
My body
To get what
You need

Chameleon Blues
you break my heart............
