Track Name: I Saw You Hiding From The Rain Today
I SAW YOU HIDING FROM THE RAIN TODAY

it was a cloudless day that day
when you semi-sadly said:
‘why does it always rain on me’
and I felt really bad

I saw you hiding from the rain today
from underneath your hood
you pulled a funny face
and I felt really good
Track Name: Rumor Had It
RUMOR HAD IT

rumor had it you’d move abroad
about a year ago
this guy from work
he knows this girl you know
so I guess you finished school
and you got your degree
the ostrich thing worked for you
now let it work for me

it is not like I could care
you do what you have to do
if you're happy over there
good for you - good for you

the rumor has just been verified
by your friend today
my face turned red
when he brought up your name
he talked about his trip
and how he looked you up
he said where you live now
how I wished he had stopped

it is not like I could care
you do what you have to do
if you're happy over there
good for you - good for you

I don't wonder - I suppose
you still live with those theories of yours
and, of course,
that what's his name knows

it is not like I could care
you do what you have to do
if you're happy over there
good for you - good for you
Track Name: They've Shut Down Marks & Spencer
THEY'VE SHUT DOWN MARKS & SPENCER

they’ve shut down Marks & Spencer
the windows all are blind
no more English breakfasts
but no one seems to mind

after Christmas sales have started
the trees are out there on the streets
another year of resolutions
and I still drag my feet

the memory is out here
the memory is here
the memory’s been out here
for more than a year

they’ve shut down Marks & Spencer
the windows all are blind
last year it reached the papers
but then I didn’t mind

the memory is out here
the memory is here
the memory’s been out here
for more than a year

I'm not out here in the rain
so it isn’t really all that bad
it’s this thing I have with change
that I have never had

they’ve shut down Marks & Spencer
the windows all are blind
Track Name: Left-Over Tears, Lost
LEFT-OVER TEARS, LOST

and here I am again
crying
back again
trying to think clear
but it’s hard to see straight
through slowly flowing tears

please, let these be
left-over tears, lost
these have to be
left-over tears - they must…

and there you were again
sitting
on my couch again
hitting on my memories
it used to be too small
now there’s place enough for three

please, let these be
left-over tears, lost
these have to be
left-over tears - they must…

these have to be
left-over tears - they just must…
please, let these be
left-over tears, lost

and there
I am again
swearing
