Track Name: Street Magic, Lena Long - New York, New York (live)
Start spreadin' the news, I'm leavin' today
I want to be a part of it, New York, New York
These vagabond shoes are longing to stray
Right through the very heart of it, New York, New York

I want to wake up in the city that doesn't sleep
To find I'm king of the hill, top of the heap

These little town blues are melting away
I've got a brand new start of it in old New York
If I can make it there I'll make it anywhere
It's up to you, New York, New York
Track Name: First Train Home (live)
bodies disengage, our mouths are fleshing over
as hiss and echo gain irises retreat into ovals of white
the urge to feel your face in blood rushing to paint my handprint
and frisbee one by one your vinyl on laminate
i'm desperate for some kind of contact

first train home i've got to get on it

temporal deadzone where clocks are barely breathing
yet no one cares to notice, for all their yamming on i clam up to hold it together
i want to Play-Doh wave forms in the hideaway, i want get on with getting on with things
i want to run in fields, paint the kitchen and love someone
but i can't do any of that here can i

first train home i've got to get on it

so what - you've had one too many
so what - i'm not that much fun to be with
so what - you've got a silly hat on
so what - i didn't want to come here anyway

what matters to you doesn't matter to me
what matters to me doesn't matter to you
what matters to you doesn't matter to them
what matters to them doesn't change anything

first train home
got to get out NOW
Track Name: Street Magic, Lena Long - Relax, Take It Easy (live)
Took a ride to the end of the line
Where no one ever goes
Ended up on a broken train with nobody I know
But the pain and the longing's the same
When you're dying
Now I'm lost and I'm screaming for help

Relax, take it easy
For there is nothing that we can do
Relax, take it easy
Blame it on me or blame it on you

It's as if I'm scared
It's as if I'm terrified
It's as if I'm scared
It's as if I'm playing with fire

There is an answer to the darkest times
It's clear, we don't understand it
But the last thing on my mind
Is to leave you
I believe that we're in this together
Don't scream - there are so many roads left

Relax, take it easy
For there is nothing that we can do
Relax, take it easy
Blame it on me or blame it on you

It's as if I'm scared
It's as if I'm terrified
Are you scared
Are we playing with fire
Track Name: Fast as You Can (live)
i let the beast in too soon
i don't know how to live without my hand on his throat
i fight him always and still
oh darling it's so sweet you think you know how crazy i am
you say you don't spook easy, you won't go
but i know and i pray that you will

fast as you can baby run free yourself of me
fast as you can

i may be soft in your palm
but i'll soon grow hungry for a fight and i will not let you win
my pretty mouth will frame the phrases
that will disprove your faith in man
so if you catch me trying to find my way into your heart
from under your skin

fast as you can baby scratch me out free yourself
fast as you can

sometimes my mind don't shake and shift
but most of the time it does
and i get to the place where i'm begging for a lift
or i'll drown in the wonders and the whys
and i'll be your boy if you say it's a gift
and you give me some more of your drug
yeah, i'll be your pet if you just tell me it's a gift
cause i'm tired of whys, choking on whys
just need a little because because

i let the beast in
and then i even tried forgiving him
but it's too soon so i fight again again again
and for a little while i'll soar the uneven wind
complain and blame the sterile land
but if you're getting any bright ideas
quiet dear, i'm blooming within

fast as you can baby wait watch me i'll be out
fast as i can maybe late but at least about
fast as you can leave me let this thing run its route
fast as you can
Track Name: Street Magic, Austin Hestdalen, Liz Yount - Bad Romance (live)
rah rah oh oh oh
roma roma ma
GaGa ooh la la
watch out bad romance

i want your ugly, i want your disease
i want your everything as long as it’s free
i want your love - love, love love
i want your love

i want your drama, the touch of your hand
i want your leather studded kiss in the sand
i want your love - love, love, love
i want your love

i want your love and i want your revenge
you and me could write a bad romance
i want your love and all your lover’s revenge
you and me could write a bad romance
caught in a bad romance

i want your horror, i want your design
cause you’re a criminal as long as you’re mine
i want your love - love, love, love
i want your love

i want your psycho, your vertigo stick
want you in my rear window baby you’re sick
i want your love - love, love, love
i want your love

i want your love and i want your revenge
you and me could write a bad romance
i want your love and all your lover’s revenge
you and me could write a bad romance
caught in a bad romance

i want your love and i want your revenge
i want your love i don’t wanna be friends
j'veux ton amour et je veux ton revanche
j'veux ton amour, i don't wanna be friends
caught in a bad romance, want your bad romance

i want your love and i want your revenge
you and me could write a bad romance
i want your love and all your lover’s revenge
you and me could write a bad romance
want your bad romance
