Track Name: I love you better when you're drunk
1. I love you better when you’re drunk © 2011
Her smile is tight
Her eyes like knives
Try to find your soft side
She pretends to help you
As long as you let her win
Everybody wary of the mood she’s in

That is only nine to five
Cos everything changes
Friday night

I love you better when you’re drunk
(Whoah whoah whaoh)
I love you better when you’re drunk
I’m going to sink you til you’re sunk
I love you better when you’re drunk

Cos when you’re sober you’re no good to me
You’re sad, you’re sour and you’re mean
I love you better when you’re drunk.

She opens the door
And hands him a beer then retreats to wait at the back line
‘cos his sorrow follows him home
almost every single day
and she’ll wear it
until tomorrow

But that is only when he’s thirsty
Cos’everything changes with a beer or three
I love you better when you’re drunk…
Track Name: Finders and Keepers
Finders and Keepers © 2011

There’s finders and keepers
And losers and weepers
And me, I always lose my keys
Finders and keepers
Losers and weepers
But you are the loser
Who just lost me

I’m running round the car trying to find the keys to my house
Running round the house trying to find the keys to my car
How far
Can a little thing go?
I swear I only had them a minute ago

There’s finders and keepers
And losers and weepers
And me, I always lose my keys
Finders and keepers
Losers and weepers
But you are the loser
Who just lost me

You love to pick
You love to poke
You love to bitch
And you love to moan
You say how lucky I am you stick around
But I’m gunna leave you howling
At the Lost and Found

There’s finders and keepers
And losers and weepers
And me, I always lose my keys
Finders and keepers
Losers and weepers
But you are the loser who just lost me
You are the loser who just lost me
My keys are in my pocket
But you are the loser who just lost me
Track Name: Married to the Sea
Married to the sea
© 2011
She came
From the mountains
Eyes like the bottom of a glass
She said
I miss my mother
But I can never
Go back never go back never ask

There’s something there
In the gaps
Something there
Between the cracks

I’ll tell you now
I’m married to the sea
I’ll tell you now
I’m married to the sea

She danced
Like a wild thing
Clothes peeled off like orange skin
She said
My fingers seem to know you
Isn’t that
The strangest thing? The strangest thing?

Bridge
Chorus

Driftwood
Seaweed
Slow black
Blue backed
Fishing boat
Bobbing sea and
Stormy nights and
Salty dreams its the
Glitter on the water
Glitter on the water
Glitter on the water
Glitter on the water

I’ll tell you now
I’m married to the sea
Track Name: Don't get me up
Don’t get me up (Lying next to you) ©2008

Don’t get me up before three
Cos I’ve got nowhere to be
Except dancing with my dreams

Lying next to you.

The night it went for days
With you getting closer
You getting closer
Distances aren’t so great
With a few bottles of grape juice

And my tongue is loose now
I say things I didn’t know were true
I tell you that I like you,
And guess what? I do.

Don’t get me up before three
‘cos I’ve got nowhere to be,
except dancing with my dreams
lying next to you

And my head is punching my eye
And my stomach is cursing me loud
But I’m doing me proud
Cos I won’t wake you
I won’t wake you

I can’t believe that I said how I feel
I can’t believe that you’re real
But I open my eyes just a crack
And see your back
And it’s framed in my eyelashes

In a world full of wrongs
This is a tiny piece if truth
Baby this is real
Cos I am lying next to you

Don’t get me up before three
Cos I’ve got nowhere to be
‘cept dancing with my dreams
lying next to you
lying next to you.
Track Name: Heart fixin' drive through
Drive Through © 2008

How many times did I plug you in

And switch you on
But you were on the blink?
How many times did I bang my head
Against your wall?
Until I couldn’t think?
How many times did I fall down
Skin my knee
For you to say baby
You’re so clumsy

How many times did you drop me
Until you finally broke me?

How I wish there was a quick fix for this
Heart fixing drive through
Two dollar super glue
Your memory erased

How many times did you come round

And take all I had to give?
How many times did you just beg for more
Just so you could live?
How many times did I forgive you
For all those things you said to me
How many times did you
Drop me knock me chip me crack me bump me
Until you finally broke me?

How I wish there was a quick fix for this
Heart fixing drive through
Two dollar super glue
Your memory erased

What was your name again?
Track Name: You talk so much
You talk so much
We were walking you were talking
I wasn’t listening
but I was nodding
I do that
Cos you talk so much

Surely you’ve run out of things to say
Cos your mouth’s been a flapping all day
My brain simply can’t retain
All those apparently intelligent things you say

Gotta think of my brain as a teacup
There’s only so much space
And the overflow spills up and all over
The place.

I was sleeping your voice was creeping
With long fingers into my dreaming
It does that
Cos you talk so much
Track Name: The Huntress
The Huntress © 2009
I got me a horse
I got me a gun

Got me some of those pantyhose that
Will never ever run
Got me a sweet little bottle of sloe gin
It’ll get me out of any little pickle I get myself in

I’m a going hunting
Gonna get me one
Of those ferocious beasts
Everybody wants
I’m a going hunting
Gonna get me one of those
Most delicious
Husbands

He’ll be sweet
And kind
And relatively clean
He’ll know how to treat a woman
From the head down to the knee
He’ll be manly
Cos we like that
But he’ll know how to cry
He’ll be scrupulously honest
But he’ll know when to lie…
Darling, do I look fat in this?

I’ve been practicing my aim
I can spot a good one
From fifty feet away
I’ll be quietly talking
Coquettishly stalking
And when I get a ring on his finger he will never get away

I’ve been lowering my standards
I now feel like any man, with two legs will do
And I suppose if it don’t work out perfectly with me
I could put his head on the wall
His hide on the floor
And go on safari..
