Track Name: Giftmouth
Would you play a part if there were any parts
That were worth playing?
I smile a lot
But not when you’re looking
I don’t want this clock to stop in the dark
Adaptation only works when it’s hard
For a year and a day
God left me this way (I fell apart)
A lot like Abelard
I am old enough to know things never change
but still I ask, “Do you want to?” anyway

Everything has come out
Can you use a giftmouth?
I don’t think there’s a doubt
You could use a giftmouth

I would steal some words if there were any words
that were worth stealing
You talk a lot
A gift that keeps giving
Don’t you know this funny look that’s on my face?
It’s almost like the gaze that saves
For a life and a day
God made me this way (it’s what I’ve got)
Like it or not
I am old enough to know what marriage means
A little potpourri and pants with the pleats

Everything has come out
Can you use a giftmouth?
I don’t think there’s a doubt
You could use a giftmouth

Everything has come out
Can you use a giftmouth?
I don’t think there’s a doubt
You could use a giftmouth
Track Name: It's Too Late and the Moment Is Gone
What can I say that’s persuasive?
Before it’s too late and the moment is gone
Should I write it in cursive?
Write it in ink down the length of your arm
Oh, one day, I’ll be romantic
One day you won’t feel like you are so alone
Heaven knows it’s what I wanted
Something that somebody had when they were young

We never laughed like those posters
Clapping our hands, God, clapping our hands
They were wrong, it’s no wonder that
I’ve spent my whole life looking over your shoulder
But, one day, I’ll be dramatic
Before it’s too late and the moment is gone
I’ll turn around and I will say it
Something that somebody said when they were
Too young
