Track Name: Driving
Heard you were driving, heard you were driving off
Well I wouldn’t if I were ... if I were you
They say there’s a storm up on the desert road
Pretty foul weather closing in

Blacktop melts in 33 degrees
The tape machine plays 'The Ghost In You'
Is that a weird cloud shape? Or a UFO?
Pretty strange weather closing in

Driving … heard you were driving

Heard you were driving, open quarterlight
Wind sheer lightning was never as calm
They say there’s a storm up on the desert road
Pretty strange weather closing in
Track Name: No Ordinary Day
I hear the stories that you tell, I know them so well
When love's the last thing on your mind

And in the end it's all the same ... I cry for you
Your pale face looks so strange

It's no ordinary day
I'd like to fall into no ordinary time
I'd like to fall ...

Here in the corner of my mind I wait for you
To discover I am blind, I'm blind

I hear the stories that you tell
I watched as you fell
Track Name: The Crown
Well do we fall or will we rise?
Touch the floor or hit the skies
Are we weak or are we wise?
This is my cup, this is your crown
You pick it up and I put it down
Tell me what you've found

We wait in bliss, we wait in fear
Was that a kiss? Was that a tear?
Tell me when I'm near
'Cause once is once and twice is twice
Don't be afraid not to be nice
Give me one more slice

So will you miss me when I'm gone?
Or will you kiss me in a song?
Tell me if I'm wrong
Well do we fall or will we rise?
Touch the floor or hit the skies
Are we weak or are we wise?
Track Name: Madelaine (remastered version)
Madelaine lies face down on the sand
She’s got one of those magazines
That tells you how to lose all this weight in 5 easy ways
“It’s all so far and away” is all she can say

Madelaine changes her name three times a day
She likes to be 1) obscure ... and anyway
She knows how to soar high in the clouds
Everything is so far and so wide (or so she has found)

And Madelaine likes to say she’s tired of waiting
Her plans all fall to the ground
Is this all of God’s making?

It’s all so far and away, or so she has found

And Madelaine likes to play
And stay out all night under swirling lights (if she can)
Is this all of God’s making?
Track Name: Just Like Always
Who will dance with you now that the party's over?
We were fooling around, we were getting nowhere
Just like always, ain't it always just like always?

Swirl around on the floor, now we're floating under
The smell of too many nights when the taste was fear
Just like always, ain't it always just like always?

Just like Napoleon you live in hope
And tonight's the night when no-one sees your escape

Who will dance with you now that the party's over?
Who will spin you around when the music stops playing?
Just like always, ain't it always just like always?
Give it all away, just like always
Track Name: The Only Tourist
The only tourist on the beach sends a postcard home
He's gone native in a tropical shirt and left a few things undone

Went to bed in his new skin, dreamed of summer too
Wasn't fooled by the fake easy eyes, wasn't fooled at all

This can never be enough ...

You don't believe all you've heard from this non-paying passenger

Sitting round at a kitchen table, nothing much to say
Bougainvillea hangs overhead, there's yachts in the bay

And you can't believe how long you've stayed
When you've broken every rule you you've made

You don't believe all you've heard from this non-paying passenger
You were feeling so brave ... rescue's just an ocean away
Track Name: A Matter of Days
You know what they say (go under, go under)
In a matter of days (go under, go under)

Stop swallowing that

Your smile makes me sigh (go under, go under)
Hello, then goodbye (go under, go under)

You know that it’s true (go under, go under)
In a matter of days (go under, go under)

In a matter of days …
Track Name: Fool
Always seem to come to you
Always seem to

What a fool am I to start what should never have been started
What a fool am I to think that you would be broken-hearted
Better pray for me 'cause a fool and his tongue are never parted

Instant glory's got a lot to do with it
Instant glory

What a fool am I to think that you would be broken-hearted
What a fool was I to start what should never have been started
Better pray for me 'cause a fool and his tongue are never parted

In the movies, always get away with it
Same old story
Track Name: This Feeling
I've got this feeling, I know this feeling off by heart
It's the same one that I get in my car when we've driven all too far

I have distractions, I have distractions all the time
They scream up and hit you from behind
I always want to follow, I never want to fall

I know this beast of, I know this beast of love's alive
Alive and kicking on both sides, it never wants to die

And it's just as well that this very sight of you
Is the only sight of you that I need now
Is this a promise out of love or a promise out of fear?
All I want is standing near
In this cold May rain (turning slowly)
In this cold May rain

I've never been closer, I've never been this close before
Like living on a knife-edge in a storm
When there's no-one you can call

I've got this feeling, I have these feelings all the time
They roll up and hit you from inside
I always want to follow, I never want to fall

And it's just as well that this very sight of you
Is the only sight of you that I need now
And you know this time (and we say so)
There's nothing more that I can do
And it's warm inside of you
In this cold May rain (turning slowly)
In this cold May rain
