Track Name: Living in Your Past
There is a sinking in my chest
Second fiddle, second best
Once again
And though your body may be bold
I can feel you growing cold
Deep within

Open your mouth and let me hear you
All that I want is to be near you

You are here by my side in this moment
And this moment will be over much too fast
If you find a way to love me, let me know it
Cos if we learn how to make that love last
Maybe you can stop living in your past

I know he's kind and he is true
And he has been the one for you
For so long
But I have filled the empty space he leaves behind
And you are running through my mind
Like an old, familiar song

I wanna open my heart and let you hear it
There is no reason to fear it

Cos I am here by your side in this moment
And this moment will be over much too fast
If you find a way to love me, let me know it
Cos if we learn how to make that love last
Maybe you can stop living in your past

All that I want is to be near you

You are here by my side in this moment
And this moment will be over much too fast
If you find a way to love me, let me know it
Cos if we learn how to make that love last
Maybe you can stop living in your past
Track Name: Mushroom Suit
When it's all over and my time is at hand
I wanna go out the way I began
Satin and cedar, what is that worth?
Just strip me down, give me back to this earth

Cos ashes are ashes and dirt is dirt
I'll be a memory, so how can it hurt
To break down and build up and bear some fruit?
Oh wrap me up in a mushroom suit

Beautiful Betty in her baby blue dress
She's looking so peaceful but her family's a mess
They came from all over, but who knows what for?
Cos the person they loved isn't here anymore

Cos ashes are ashes and dirt is dirt
I'll be a memory, so how can it hurt
To break down and build up and bear some fruit?
Oh wrap me up in a mushroom suit
Yeah, wrap me up in a mushroom suit

Ashes are ashes and dirt is dirt
I'll be a memory, so how can it hurt
To break down and build up and bear some fruit?
Oh wrap me up in a mushroom suit

Ashes are ashes and dirt is dirt
I'll be a memory, so how can it hurt
To break down and build up and bear some fruit?
Oh wrap me up in a mushroom suit
Yeah, wrap me up in a mushroom suit
Oh wrap me up in a mushroom suit
Track Name: Stella's Song
Don't let me say it, Stella dear
The words are on my lips, but let me make it clear
That though I'm eager to confess it
We will both live to regret it
So don't let me say it, Stella dear

Don't let me linger when we touch
Don't let me light your cigarette and make you blush
Don't pour that second glass of wine
Don't let our fingers intertwine
And don't let me linger when we touch

Although I want so much to hold you
Take you dancing 'neath the stars
And I could kill the man who told you
You don't deserve the love that's pouring from my heart

And oh, I know you're still unsteady
Your old man made you feel small
And so, until the day you're ready
I'll be there to pick you up if you should fall

So don't let me say it, Stella dear
The words are on my lips, but don't you bend an ear
Until the day it starts to ringing
With the melody that I've been singing
Then I can say it, Stella blue
Then I can say that I love you
Track Name: The Losing End
Talk to me, slowly now
Tell me what you're feeling
I am lying in the dark
Staring at the ceiling

It is hard to be
Waiting patiently
For your love to appear
When I know that he's still near

Either way you go
I'm the last to know
I'm on the losing
I'm on the losing end
While you take your time
With this heart of mine
I'm on the losing
I'm on the losing end

I should walk away from you
Yeah, I know it's for the best
But every time you're in my arms
I forget about the rest

It is hard to be
Waiting patiently
While you're trying to find
A way to leave him behind

Either way you go
I'm the last to know
I'm on the losing
I'm on the losing end
While you take your time
With this heart of mine
I'm on the losing
I'm on the losing end

Though I know that this may never turn out right
It's not over if I'm on your mind tonight

Either way you go
I'm the last to know
I'm on the losing
I'm on the losing end
While you take your time
With this heart of mine
I'm on the losing
I'm on the losing
I'm on the losing end
