Oh! You Lied (free) 02:20
Well the shapes on the water tellin’ you need to leave When you said you wanted me, what did you really mean? You lied, you lied, you lied, you lied, you lied. When I said that I wanted you, I wanted the truth. When I said that I needed you, I needed proof. You lied, you lied, you lied, you lied, you lied. In the morning it all goes away like a wave. You pretend to behave, I pretend to be brave. You lied, you lied, you lied, you lied, you lied. What a horrible feeling of being abused. What’s the worst that can happen from telling the truth? You lied, you lied, you lied, you lied, you lied. i’m afraid every end of the day of the truth. i’m afraid i might actually prefer it to you.

Understand, please understand It takes a lot to make a man, A thousand parts, a living plan. Yea, it means a lot to have a plan. Yea, this you’ve got to understand. Understand, please understand Can we start where I began? This is no time to make a stand. This is the worst place we could land. Yea, this you’ve got to understand. I thought I understood this, I thought I knew me better. I’m afraid I’m innocent, I’ll get it when I’m older.

Love Like Parachutes (free) 04:59
We didn’t need God, or any escape routes. We wore our love like parachutes. We wore our love like question marks. It might have been natural, might not have been smart. There wasn’t a future, we cared to define. There were no Gods on which we needed to rely. There was no sickness, so there was no reason to die. There was nothing but morning and night. When we were in love, you could tell us nothing.
4.
I could hold a smile for so long holding you down, oh what is wrong I could walk for miles in your shoes with your blues, oh if you’d come along. I could be the keeper of your trust your navy and your nurse, oh if you’d tell me what hurts If you’re ready to go, I’m ready too. I could write a song to sing to you I could sing a song to write, oh if I could stay the night. I could be the people that you kiss, the demon on your list, oh if you tell me what I missed. If you’re ready to go, I’m ready too.
