Goodbye Bad Days

Lyrics

Goodbye bad days
Goodbye heartaches
Bid farewell to wasted afternoons
And pretty soon you’ll clear your conscience
Or swim with big fish
Leave the books to gather dust
Turn what’s shiny into rust

Something new to hate
Something new to break
Bid farewell to hollow metaphors
And pretty soon you’ll find a clean slate
Or make your great escape
Either way what’s done is done
Either way what’s dead is won

Take your clothes off
And lets go get lost
If they don’t see us then it doesn’t count, without a doubt
I’m in a tailspin
In the shallow end
We’ll keep running while we can
We’ll keep breathing while we…

No more feeling sad
No more days in bed
Bid farewell to nodding patiently
And suddenly you’ll stay a waitress,
I’ll be a right mess
No one else can ever know
No one else will ever know

Goodbye bad days
Goodbye heartaches
You better find a brand new noms de guerre
And while you’re there we’ll keep the gate locked
And if it gets dark we’ll burn books to keep us warm
One day we’ll find our way back home

Whisky Eyes

Lyrics

Not quite sure what you were thinking
Baby’s dead, the clock is ticking
Polaroids have faded long ago
Real slim odds but still we’re betting
One more round of Lucky 7
Better to be lost than be alone

Whisky-eyes, oh, tell no lies

Logic lane has flooded alleys
Chinese rain on party armies
Loud and screeching harpies on the loose
Pucker up, you look delicious
Bleed me dry with poker kisses
Best of wishes, let me introduce

Whisky-eyes, I wanna die by your side
Whisky-eyes, oh, tell no lies
Why do you lie so?
Whisky-eyes, I despise –
No goodbyes, no goodbyes, no goodbyes

Women ever so promiscuous
After hours advantageous
Ever so courageous, Betty-Bones
Frugal tea with Schopenhauer
Dump the body in the shower!
Plato’s cave ran out of flowers
Ho, Ho, Ho!!!

Whisky-eyes, I wanna die by your side
Whisky-eyes, oh, tell no lies
Why do you lie so?
Whisky-eyes, I despise –
No goodbyes, no goodbyes, no goodbyes

Not quite sure what you were expecting
of army brats and fortune telling
Come on Lucky 7, bring me home

Why do you lie so?
Whisky-eyes, I despise
No goodbyes, oh, Whisky-eyes
No goodbyes, no goodbyes, no goodbyes
