Track Name: The Funeral Party (Cure Cover)
Two pale figures ache in silence
Timeless in the quiet ground
Side by side in age and sadness

I watched and acted wordlessly
As piece by piece you performed your story
Moving through an unknown past
Dancing at the funeral party

Memories of childrens dreams
Lie lifeless, fading lifeless
Hand in hand with fear and shadows
Crying at the funeral party

I heard a song and turned away
As piece by piece you performed your story
Noiselessly across the floor
Dancing at the funeral party
Track Name: Taciturn (alternate mix)
These words are not the ones I want to say
Deferred, it won't hurt to wait another day

With the daylight low and the hours growing few
These busy hands find lesser things to do

In my head, rehearsing endless hours awake
But instead, intention fades behind mistake

With the nightfall comes a chance I will betray
There are always less important things to say
And it's the same thing every night
It seems the time is never right
With the sun already stealing you away
When it comes up again

He's been waiting to hear the truth
She just needed to see the proof

If there were a way to explain, you might understand
But it never comes out quite as planned
I stare at the floor and wait for this awkward spell to end
I just hope I can say it then
And it comes up again
Track Name: "I Know We Could Be So Happy Baby (If We Wanted to Be)" Jeff Buckley Cover
There's no easy answer
None to blame or forgive
Two cripples dancing
To the end we live

I'm not with you not of you
Not with you, not of you
You are soft and young to me
I am the ghost who comes and goes
And I hope I'll catch you
In the throws of one last look at the wonder
One last look at the wonder

O, God, I love you
And all the past we once knew
Some other love becomes you
Whatever else we come to
I know we could be so happy, baby
If we wanted to be

You are soft and young to me
I am the ghost who comes and goes
I'm hoping that I'll catch you in the throws
Of one last look at joy that we've become

But there's no easy answer, none to blame or forgive
We were two cripples dancing
To the bitter end we live
I'm not with you, but of you
I'm not with you but of you

O, God, I loved you
And all the past we once knew
Some other love becomes you
Whatever else we come to
I know we could be so happy, baby
If we wanted to be

We had a birthplace in common
We had separate beds and lives

I'll just sit here in gloam
Break out the oldest pictures
Hang your ruined letters out to dry
We had a birthplace in common
And separate beds and lives
And lives, and lives
I know that we could be so happy, baby
If we wanted to be
I know that we could be so happy, baby
