Track Name: I Know She Does
I know my baby loves me
and I know she does
and I know she does

I know my baby needs me
and I know she does
and I know she does

When she gives me all her kisses
in her parents' bed
I just lose my head
I'm going out of my head

Whoa whoa hey

I know my baby loves me
and I know she does
and I know she does

I know my baby needs me
and I know she does
and I know she does

When she holds my hand
when she holds my hand
she makes me understand

Whoa whoa hey
Track Name: Have You Seen This Girl Anywhere?
hearing songs from a time that got away
I remember your eyes
and I think about you
a shining star in a world that's dark and crass

so we're still friends... or so I feign -- I just pretend
but your memory still keeps me company

we drift apart like seeds from the same tree
where are you now?
do you ever think of me?
I still hope to hear from you one day

so we're still friends, but no I feign, I just pretend
but your vision still haunts me to this day

have you seen this girl anywhere?

it would be so nice to hear about your life
it would be real nice to hear what's on your mind
it would be so nice just to hear that you're alright
it would be so nice just to hear that you're still alive

I've since resigned to stow such dreams away
you live your own life
and I try to live mine
as best as I can do anyway
Track Name: The Pasta Song
you left your pasta in my bag
I'll keep it for you
on second thought how about I just make it for two?
I need the excuse to call you up and ask you
I'm so very shy
I'm so very shy
I'm so very shy
Whatever am I gonna do?

what do you know, I think you like me too
from the way you kiss I could tell it was true
but lets take it slow
because I don't want to hurt you
lets just have some fun
lets just have some fun
I think it's the best thing to do

I haven't had much of anything else to do
so I spend my time just hanging out with you
I know it's wrong to fall in love out of boredom
but I feel for you
and sympathy too
I fell in love with you
whatever am I going to do?

I've already art to devote my life to
I'm so bad to you
I'm so bad to you
I'm so bad to you
whatever are you going through?
Track Name: Cupid Makes a Fool of Me
I've been feeling week, but no it's not flu
all the same, I should eat some food
but I couldn't take a bite
not the way I feel tonight
my stomach just won't sit tight

I don't know what I will do
(he doesn't know what he will do)
over these feelings I have growing for you

filled with a sense of inevitability with you
pinch me, slap me, wake me, because it's not true
nothing ever works out right
would you swim with no land in sight?
would you trust the fates with your life?

I don't know what I will do
(he doesn't know what he will do)
over these feelings I have growing for you

Could I like you? Could you like me?
Could we devise some circumstances where we could test and see?
And how should I act?
In phase with history?
or could be fast-forward to the point where the fates have shown to me of loves that comes to be

(He doesn't know what he will do)
(He doesn't know what he will do)

I don't know what I will do

There's nothing that I can't do
If I persevere I will pull through
I will do what my mind's made up to do
but I never know what I should do
There's nothing that I can't do
If a persevere I will pull through
but I never know what I want to do
Track Name: Inconstant Moon
Have you looked at the night sky?
Have you looked at the night sky tonight?

Look at the moon, see how bright it is
What if we have but hours left to live
Do you think our sun could go supernova?
is this it, is it all over?
I've never seen it as bright as this
Is a solar flare be behind this?
Venus is so bright it's nearly blinding
Where are you, are you going to find me?
Track Name: Birds Carried Your Song Through the Night
we fell in love watching the moon
while in shadows creeping
from behind a house he was watching
us fall in love pulled by the moon
he'd followed you here
he was pining for your heart
when you left in the dark
I curled up on the floor
and stayed up until dawn broke
what kind of creature are you?

I waited for you, I went back when I heard you sing my name
but the moon was gone now it was dark and you never came
but birds carried your song through the night

to where we fell in love
under the moon
that cold dark evening
with the broken heart watching
us fall in love pulled by the moon
now a dark hole forming
and our friends are disappearing
as birds carried your song through the night
