Track Name: State Of Foreign Affairs
Sing me to sleep
I don't care if your voice is out of tune
I only care that it comes from you, so
Where did you go?
Other voices sound the same
And all their words just sound so plain, so

I will find you
Just in the nick of time
Waiting for me
Underneath the power lines that
Only appear when the moment's right, so

I watch time go by
I'm counting down days just one by one
I know I said what's done was done, but
Mephisto and I
We just can't decide

I will find you
Just in the nick of time
Waiting for me
Underneath the power lines that
Only appear when the moment's right, so
Track Name: Chicago, A Long Time Ago
Remember when we met in Chicago
A long time ago?
The wind was at our backs
As you drew up your coat
I didn't want you to go

So I called out your name
But as you turned around
The streetlights whisked you away
Without a sound

And she said
No, I don't wanna leave this town

Remember when we met in Chicago
Twenty-nine years ago?
Our lives were both the same
Nothing had changed yet
How was I supposed to know?

And I called out your name
But as you turned around
The streetlights whisked you away
Without a sound

And she said
No, I don't wanna leave this town
Without you in tow
She said
No, no I don't wanna leave you now
Track Name: Mackinac Island
Out on the docks
She watches the sun come out
On deck chairs
On her back porch
We watch as the moon goes down

Yeah her brother's still lost at sea
Off Mackinac Island too

Out on the town
She asks if anyone's seen him around
Off the highway
A picnic in her white car
I shield her eyes from the sandbar

Yeah her brother's still lost at sea
Off Mackinac Island too
Track Name: Waverly & 6th
Popped a match on a dashboard
Watched you light a cigarette
I guess summer nights in Brooklyn
Are as good as it's ever gonna get

Took awhile for you to catch on
I thought I made it crystal clear
If things are gonna get better
It's gonna happen west of here

Looks like you were just a myth
You can reach me at Waverly & 6th

Packed a bag by the staircase
I kinda wish that you'd begged me to stay
It didn't seem like you noticed
It didn't seem like you were afraid

Looks like you were just a myth
You can reach me at Waverly & 6th
Looks like we were both a myth
You can reach me at Waverly & 6th
Track Name: In The Stairwell
And we cower
Like hounds before lions
In the stairwell
