fitbit cross train
chocolate frosting
eat cake and have it too
i want only only the best for you

jump around on the floor
get yourself some new kicks
they’re too cool to ignore
and whatever it is
i know you deserve more
i want only the best for you

all alone with four bars
baby here’s the truth
i want only only the best for you
i want only only the best

jump around on the floor
get yourself some new kicks
they’re too cool to ignore
and whatever it is
i know you deserve more
i want only the best for you
Track Name: The Sun
something hidden in plain sight
something lost behind a cloak of light

everything everything bright as the day

warm as the mourners in warm embrace
warm as the shadows that leave my face

something lost behind a cloak of light
something hidden in plain sight

Track Name: Saturn
all that glitters is not gold
trust the sand inside an old man’s shoes
stop and think about your soul
tough as leather and it wears through too

go and drink a little wine
i hear you talking talking someday i’m gonna do
son, someday you’re gonna find
you were talking talking time caught up with you

i’m looking through you
i’m looking through you son
i’m looking through you
like i do

she who dithers is a fool
i hear that blither blither someday i’m gonna do
but you know time is talking too
trust the sand inside an old man’s shoes

i’m looking through you
i’m looking through you son
i’m looking through you
like i do

do not waste your precious time
do not mistake me i am not unkind to you
if you seek then you will find
trust the sand inside an old man’s shoes

i’m looking through you
i’m looking through you son
i’m looking through you
like i do
Track Name: Deirdre And Conor - Saturnday
here am i
shirt and tie
boarding
for another trip across the universe
first the sun
then the moon
there’s mars
mercury and jupiter and venus

but saturn day
oh hey
won’t you stay
in the farmers market where we buy our bread
and then we drink this wine
and then we plan our night
so we come home tired
and lay side by side

saturnday won’t you stay just a little longer than you usually do

but saturn day
oh hey
won’t you stay
in the farmers market where we buy our bread
and then we drink this wine
and then we plan our night
so we come home tiered
and lay side by side
Track Name: Deirdre And Conor - Song For A Winter Night
oh the orbs release their light
as their hydrogen ignites
and my love does wander by my side
and sits with me tonight

oh our hearts are filled with love
they are also filled with blood
and our lungs are filled with a winter chill and also oxygen
oh our lungs are filled with a winter chill and also oxygen
Track Name: Deirdre And Conor - The Phantom To The Spaceship Said
i’m a satellite
burning brightly
with all my might
returning nightly
fifty million dead
and i like you the best
come with me my friend
join my orbit geosynchronous
the spaceship to the phantom said
the spaceship to the phantom
i always tell the truth
that’s just what us spaceships do
to signal i love you
i’ll play…

i’m a lady ghost
in phantasmic costume
wherever i go
i say oooooooo
of all the blinking stars
in the astral charts
you’re the best by far
take my hand and ectoplasmic heart
the phantom to the spaceship said
the phantom to the spaceship
i always tell the truth
that’s just what spirits do
to get my message through
i’ll go…
