Track Name: Black Lipstick & Broken Hearts
My chemicals love your chemicals
And I have the wherewithal to know what happens next
What happens to us

Waiting for the confrontation
All this wait of expectation
This is the price I have to pay
When I am oh so nearly home

I know I was wrong, but I have also been wronged
I know I was wrong, but I have also been wronged
Trying to win my tenure, with a big romantic gesture
Trying to win my tenure, with a big romantic gesture

Message received
Uh-oh

We crack and we sputter
Like the needle dragging on old vinyl
And we know that, we know that it shows

Waiting on this depression
Still I haven't learned my lesson
Oh it's so hard, when I...

When I am oh so nearly...

Oh let's go back to the start
Of black lipstick and broken hearts
Oh let's go back to the start
To fix these years of broken hearts
Track Name: Sway (feat. Alice Girl)
Awake/asleep/awake/asleep/awake/asleep/awake
Awake/asleep/awake/asleep/awake/asleep

It's not about what we call 'relationships' or sex,
Or walking hand in hand through the door on the left,
Or the right or through the supermarket,
Picking up parcels, spending days in
Tangled ways and tangled sheets
And a sweaty mess, 'cause there's not much left of you and me,
Only us and we are, well we are just something
‘Cause we came from nothing and we flirted with others
But we're standing here, oh we're standing here

And we sway in the dark, we sway in the dark
And we sway in the dark, we sway in the dark
But where is my heart, babe, where is my heart?
Where is my heart as we sway in this dark?

It's not about houses, or trips overseas,
Or some perfect leather couch, our various degrees
And it's not weddings, but where we're heading
And what we're shedding, oh yes we're shedding all of those
Wasted days and wasted years
That come again and rise again, like lines on the horizon
The sum of our fears
Quelled up from nothing while we were kissing others
And now we just, and now we just...

I don't know if we're gonna make it
But I will try, I will try
