Track Name: Sherry's Dead
Sherry said 'I don't wanna be dead, dig me up and build my bones and i'll be your girlfriend,
Take me into town you can show me around'
Sherry says she's missed so much of life and watching people walk alive among the stones of graveyards that they call their home,
they are all walking alone
lo-oh-oh-oh-oh-ohne

How can I put my arms around her when i, well, I don't even know her?
She says it's better with your skin off, she says there's nothing to be scared of

Sherry says to take me to her bed and fool around with her amongst the worms and flies that lay their eggs inside your eyes
She sees the truth through all the lies
Sherry says that i can leave with her, she'll show me things that i have never seen before, and i feel so happy that she is lying here with me

Me

How can i tell her that i love her, even though i've only just-a met her?
It's true, it's better with your skin off, i tell you there is nothing to be scared of
Track Name: 4 Feet Apart
I met a girl on the other side of the railroad tracks
we were stood 4 feet apart but that distance didn't lack electricity running between her and me

We walked for miles oh but we never crossed that line
And though every now and then a train would come running to time through our broken path
We were still 4 feet apart

Lines running straight keep everything in order
We know it's safe when we stay within our borders
But there comes a time when when everyone must fall

We've travelled far and we have seen a lot of land
We're both following the same stars although I've never even held her hand
If it's meant to be
I guess we'll have to wait and see

Lines running straight keep everything in order
We know it's safe when we stay within our border
But there comes a time when when everyone must fall

Lines form a point if you look into the distance
But blind our view of the path of least resistance
If you look towards me
You'll see what I see
We're only 4 feet apart
Track Name: HaveIStartedFallingInLoveWithYou?
You are on my mind, can it be true?
Have I started falling in love with you?
I wish you were coming out tonight ‘cause I don’t feel right
When your body’s far away from me,
All that I can feel is misery
If you were next to me then I’d be fine
I can’t stop sighing ‘cause I’ll start crying again

Woah woah woah….

I can feel my body tumbling. I keep falling over everything
I think that I might have left my eyes with the sunrise
I know it’s kinda dumb to feel this way but I can’t help but think of yesterday
I have tried my best to stay away
But there’s no point trying to deny it again

Woah woah woah oh…

We don’t need to talk about the situation
I’m just sitting here and using my imagination to bring your body close to me
Track Name: Unicorn Boy
There was a time I can remember your hand in mine, our palms together
But you read the lines badly one time and heard the chimes as if they were saying goodbye

So now we stand with our love torn apart
In my empty hand I still feel your heart beating in time with what's left of mine
I guess you're doing fine but won't you just come back to stay?
We could make everything ok
There's no such thing as it's too late
Oh oh oh

Now the world I live in has fallen to the ground and if the end is about to come well I want to be around you
We can build it different this time and I'll let you choose the scheme
You might think it's unrealistic but can you blame me for dreaming?

We can fly away, I'll grant you every wish you make
There's no such thing as it's too late
You have to see I'll always be your Unicorn boy
Track Name: Downtown (Petula Clark cover)
When you're alone and life is making you lonely
You can always go - downtown
When you've got worries, all the noise and the hurry
Seems to help, I know - downtown
Just listen to the music of the traffic in the city
Linger on the sidewalk where the neon signs are pretty
How can you lose?

The lights are much brighter there
You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares
So go downtown, things'll be great when you're
Downtown - no finer place, for sure
Downtown - everything's waiting for you

Don't hang around and let your problems surround you
There are movie shows - downtown
Maybe you know some little places to go to
Where they never close - downtown
Just listen to the rhythm of a gentle bossa nova
You'll be dancing with him too before the night is over
Happy again

The lights are much brighter there
You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares
So go downtown, where all the lights are bright
Downtown - waiting for you tonight
Downtown - you're gonna be all right now

And you may find somebody kind to help and understand you
Someone who is just like you and needs a gentle hand to
Guide them along

So maybe I'll see you there
We can forget all our troubles, forget all our cares
So go downtown, things'll be great when you're
Downtown - don't wait a minute for
Downtown - everything's waiting for you
