Track Name: Haste and Happenstance
Sorry for all your losses
But lives go on and you’ll get along just fine

Don’t be afraid of all you’ve not lived up to
If there is any question, it is best to not think twice,
You’ve done only what you can, you can only do what you can

It’s just a theory, that it is wiser, when to ourselves we can say:

You must leave these things behind you, leave these things behind you

Leave these things behind you, only if you can
But if you can’t, don’t, only if you can

Leave me behind you’ll be just fine

Leave these things behind you, only if you can
But if you can’t, don’t, only if you can
Track Name: Oh my! Alan was a greedy baby.
Baby.
Ooo, Baby.
Where have you gone? I loved you along.


It’s 3 AM again, Baby.
Why don’t you answer me?
Is it so bad to be to be my baby?

Where have you gone? I loved you all along.

Remember your poetry, Baby?
Down by the willow tree?
Yeah, when we danced cheek to cheek, my baby.

What have you done? You’re not the only one.

Now you’re so mean to, Baby
Or, is it reciprocity?
Why there’s no grace for me and my baby.

What have we done? We’re not the only ones.
