Track Name: Tree
All these leaves are mine
All these leaves are mine
All these leaves are mine
All these leaves are mine

If they'll keep you warm
If they'll keep you warm
If they'll keep you warm
You can have these leaves

All these branches mine
All these branches mine
If they'll keep you warm
You can burn this tree
Track Name: Photo
There are still, somewhere, the photographs-
bleeding in silence in taxi cabs,
stuck on the back of a bedroom door
in some unusual corridor.
Scratching my name on the evening star,
watching you in the back seat of your car
we were not meant to live so long

Toys, by the hundred, in plastic bags-
broken, forgotten and tied in rags,
tied out to dry on the washing line,
left out in winter and tied in lime,
forgotten for years, and decayed away,
stored in you drawers for another day
we were not meant to live so long

Pretty and little and wonderful
Hovering round me, invisible,
lights on the stairways and balcony,
a little incandescent memory
we were not meant to live so long
Track Name: Long
You smell of trains, and traffic jams
you didn't kiss me goodbye
I saw you from my balcony
with another man

I have your keyrings in a jar,
your novel's on the bedside floor,
I have a message on my phone
I shouldn't listen to.

And oh, this day is long
is long.
