Track Name: Past Tense
I take the train into the city
Turn and the sun shines in my eyes again
If I put my face against the glass
I feel like I found myself in a movie

But it didn't feel right
I didn't want that

Ghosts wandered by
Cautiously down the aisles
They saw me and said I'll love you once again
If I put my face against the glass
I felt like I found myself in a movie

But it didn't feel right
I didn't want that
Caught looking back, I was caught looking back.
Track Name: Light
I can't sleep; it's too hot in the room
Oh my God, I am splitting in two
I taste milk. I taste wine
On my left, on my other left

and your name is light

It's these memories of water on skin
And their taste is like wine
I'm not conscious of passing time

I don't feel the weight of past time anymore
and your name is light

Love is everywhere
Love is in everybody
Love is on the left side of your ribcage
Love you never have to be ashamed of.
Track Name: The CN Tower Belongs to the Dead
Lyrics (c) Owen Pallett, and available through his own very respectable avenues.
Track Name: Click Clock
I'm looking at the clock - tick - tock - and it's looking right back at me
I'm listening to the clicks of the clock, talking, ticking, tacked up on the wall.

Toy train turning on the tracks - click - clack - to distract from pitterpats outside
Slow circles on the floor, four more, now I'm bored.
What a grey drizzle-day!

What does it take to tame time? Tell me tell me!
Rain, rain, go away, come back some other day.
I just hate to take time waiting for the drops to stop, so I can hop, splash, jump and play.

Stop dripping-dropping down, raindrops, running, ruining all my fun!
Sun, soon seen shining noonshine, come before the moon shines on my floor!
Track Name: Sigh No More
Sigh no more, ladies, sigh nor more;
Men were deceivers ever;
With one foot in sea and one on shore,
To one thing constant never;
Then sigh not so,
But let them go,
And be you blithe and bonny;
Converting all your sounds of woe
Into "Hey, nonny nonny!"

Sing no more ditties, sing no moe,
Of dumps so dull and heavy;
The fraud of men was ever so,
Since summer first was leavy.
Then sigh not so,
But let them go,
And be you blithe and bonny,
Converting all your sounds of woe
Into "Hey, nonny nonny!"
Track Name: And Seek
I'm hiding. Come find me!

Keep looking...

I heard you looking in the other room.
I was breathing very quiet so you couldn't hear me.
Now I'll breathe a little louder, so you can hear me...
Now I'll breathe a little louder to give you a hint!
Track Name: Cycling
Riding around in the winter sun,
Greeting my friends with an up-raised Thumb.

Cycling!

Pedaling down along the boulevard;
When I'm on my bike, my life is not so hard!

Cycling.

I love my bike more than I love you, dear.

Cycling!

Won't it be so inviting when we take our cycles riding tonight?
