I'm too drunk to talk You're too stoned to think Why do I ring you at all? Desperately trying to turn my day episode into a story 'Cause you can't debate politics in the early morning hour 'Cause we only got three, four, five, six hours a day To be in each other's way Yeah we only got three, four, five, six hours a day So I better think of something good to say You're tapping barefoot over carpet I'm making my way to the club door And it's such a thrill to check my phone Guys, I gotta take a cigarette break To be with you With you 'Cause we only got three, four, five, six hours a day To be in each other's way Yeah we only got three, four, five, six hours a day So I better think of something good to say I better think of something good to say We only got three... We only got three...

Cold Feet 04:27
It's not on me but I want to share the costs If I can't hold your hand then let me bear the cross But don't leave me out Don't, don't leave me out Don't, don't, don't leave me out I just put off my shoes Sure, you don't want a tea? Then let me tell you a dream I had The other night we were out in the woods started running and you said if we ran on we'd be one with time and space when my dusk's no more your dawn The thought made me sigh and get up in the night to play you Grieg, my favourite piece, And the varnish on every key feels like your cold feet in the morning Don't leave me out Don't, don't leave me out Don't, don't, don't leave me out I want to decide myself

Jónsi 05:37
White horses are running through my mind From your lips where the sun has left its marks I want to tell you about this girl I can't be close enough and then I realize it's all you, then I realize it's all you Jónsi, I dreamed I played your song in a gym, on the organ I played you your sound 'I like this effect', you smiled with your squinting eye but I didn't know your name then, and so I couldn't tell you mine And if I stay in touch, if only I close my eyes, I will know the score. And if I stay in touch, if only I keep my eyes closed, I will know the melody. Wake up with your head in my hands wake up with your hands in my head wake up with your hands in my hands wake up with your head in my head

Offshore 05:45
We have lost a friend from thousand flights to better lands found and lost again again 'Cause we are not long enough on planet earth to notice we can just feel the snow that's falling on our noses We have lost an anchor that makes us wanna go offshore to all these promised lands For we are ot long enough on planet earth to notice we can just feel the snow that's falling on our noses we are not long enough on planet earth to know this we can just love each other like human beings

She gives me chills she touches my heart without touching my skin when she speaks I actually listen and when she's quiet she tames oceans with her silence I tell you and you smile and mumble 'women are wonderful' I think we both know we shouldn't end up in bed I think we both know but you don't want to miss out and so you tell me about your records and your rabbits and your view from the window that needs to be viewed and I go home with you 'When was the first time? And when was the last? Are you telling me you never tried? Well, how could you know?' And I guess you're right, and I find some comfort there that at least you know that women are wonderful I thought we both knew we shouldn't end up in bed I thought we both knew but you don't want to miss out and so you tell me about your records and your rabbits and your view from the window that needs to be viewed and I go home with you I thought we both knew we shouldn't end up in bed I thought we both knew but you don't want to miss out I thought we both knew we shouldn't end up in bed I thought we both knew that I'm only here for your records and your rabbits and your view from the window and I go home without you

Pouring 03:47
I'm starting to believe that we're all the same the passing faces on the road are just mirrors of my own I'm trying to match your smile from the other side of the room I'm camouflaged in fitting in try to look but not see that the guy sings his lines all about me with eyelids shut as though the world would only see him if his world is dark Nearly bursting out in tears I burst out of the bar eyes on the tar just waiting for another call to draw me to the next door Where we all pour ourselves a drink when we're too scared to pour out tears and we just flirt with the girl behind the counter ask the guys for a fag to not be alone What is this game that I play that no one knows the rules? I dug around and found not a single clue Please take me somewhere where I can escape my head In the end it will be me and a glass and their reflections at the bottom Where we all pour ourselves a drink when we're too scared to pour out tears and we just flirt with the guy behind the counter ask the girls for a fag to not be alone

Why did I never write a song about you? But only beat the wind with curses he didn't care to hear only stopped stared at your verses and read myself into every figure that appeared? No night was ever long enough to hear your drum-solos out No wine bottle ever full enough to fuel your waterfall of questions you never failed to ask if I kissed you this time Before you stepped out in the night a horseless knight in orange stage-light with your shy posture your ballet-dancing hands your bopping hair that always seemed to foster any crazy idea underneath No night would have ever been enough to hear your drum-solos out No wine bottle ever full enough to fuel your waterfall of questions you never failed to ask you never needed to ask if I missed you when you're gone
