Track Name: Three Pieces
It doesn’t matter who they stay with,
(Rings and flings are fleeting)
What they say or where they’re meeting
Cherish the piece of your own
Think of them kindly
See it - you’ll feel together, alone

Love cuts in three pieces, daggers and knives
Love cuts in three pieces
Open arms, embracing, letting them go
There’s no point as sharp as this
When love cuts in three pieces

Toes dip gently into water
Glasses slide to the end of your nose
Inspecting and checking each other
Bliss, finally letting go
Pushed like the wheel you wanted to be
So, keep that momentum and roll

It doesn’t matter who you’re kissing
I’ve kissed you often enough
I feel it

Love cuts in three pieces, daggers and knives
Love cuts in three pieces
You and her, he and her, you on your own
There’s no point as sharp as this
When love cuts in three pieces
Track Name: My Thinking Face
Did you see the flowers in the living room?
I thought they were pretty - reminded me of you
Did they last as long as our little tryst?
As long as your fingers or the time we first kissed?
In my head I press lightly on your lips with my fingertips
I know that they made you angry
Your angry face will be missed

My thinking face has been no good to me
Got so much love for sale - I take any currency
Small change felt good landing in my hand
It bought me some time
You’d think my stupid face would understand
By the car, everything was in place
I got the green light and you got my thinking face

Did you know that I never told you lies?
I took yours like punches with my eyes on the prize
An old friend knew just where I went wrong
His resonant words suddenly muted and gone
“They just want to be taken”
Then as now, sounded easy to do
The best man, he knew to mention
“So what if you didn’t follow through?”

Any other person, place or any other day
It might have been curtains - now there’s no time to waste
I found out...

My thinking face has been no good to me...
Track Name: Right
I’m gonna jump in my car, come and see you right now
I just have to know for sure what could and what can’t be
Then, at least I will have no doubts
Learnt my words – got them all laid out
Might forget but the facts won’t hide
I will hope for sun
Like when it begun
Outside – let’s take this game outside

You won’t have to say those four little words
I know you don’t and I’m not even sure that I do
You still top and tail each day
Open, close – you’re there without fail
And so I have to do what is
Wrong to do what is right.
Track Name: Butterflies
I’m not crying
There’s something in my eye again - a reflection of you
Every vision passing through like a coffee filter
And I’ll drink another cup while this picture of you
Makes my heart beat fast and keeps me up

Pardon me, miss, but I think you’re really special
I hope you don’t mind if I keep saying this
Pardon me, miss, if I seem to be unsettled
It’s nothing that I fear or the caffeine in my drink
Not the music in my ears causing me to rise and sink

You give me butterflies
Deep, dark circles on their wings just like your eyes
I’m fluttering ‘tween branches in the sky
You give me butterflies

I’m so captivated
Addicted to the rush when your name lights up the room
My insides decide to flip and dive
Man, I’m so hungry but nothing passes my lips
Now that I’ve tasted yours
No food could satisfy me more

Pardon me, miss, but I think you’re really special
I know you won’t mind that I keep saying this
Pardon me, miss, if I seem to be unsettled
Hunger won’t explain it
My whole body shakes and floats
Like a silver toy balloon
Like a bubble, like a ghost

You give me butterflies
Deep, dark circles on their wings just like your eyes
I’m fluttering ‘tween branches in the sky

You give me butterflies
Hard to breathe, I’m not sure if I’m alive
Caught, pinned in a box, hung low, hung high
You give me butterflies
