Track Name: POSTCARDS AND POLAROIDS
This breakup came too sudden and it hurts too bad
To see you or to hear your voice
And all I really want and all I need now
Are your postcards and your polaroids

Damn! it hurts like hell but it’s oh so well
I’m feeling like a sad lil’ clown
Gonna put my life into that suitcase
Cause the circus is back in town

And it’s true
Yes it’s true
I can’t and won’t stop loving you

You said you’ve changed but how to stay the same
Well you were seventeen
This was way too long so I belong
To you and you bel ong to me

Now listen: I don’t mind this test of time
As long as you don’t go
Be my natural force, my source and course
Cause the right time is always now
Track Name: TRY TO WRITE A SONG LIKE THIS
There are voices in my head
Of all those Heavy Metal Bands
How hard it is to have a heart
I’m making fun of everyone
Make fun of me just when I’m gone
And I will make an early start

And don’t take it too serious
You are so mysterious
Like the U.S. series
And I don’t belong here
I just belong near
Where things are so clear

Call ahead when you’re too late
Smile at anyone you hate
And think of what you want to say
Just say what you really mean
Don’t sit too close to the screen
And call your girlfriend every day

And all the people at the bar
Say I can barely play guitar
How hard it is to have a heart
I’m making fun of everyone
Make fun of me just when I’m gone
And I will make an early start

So get your own things straight
Break a crumb and bake a cake
And try to find the things you miss
Talk to her and not to me
Build a house and plant a tree
And try to write a song like this
