I hit my head - I bit my tongue 'cause life was good I had a taste, yes I tasted blood I tasted you and you taste like something... well I had forgot how good it feels to be young, drunk and in love I hit my head and I hurt my knee on an armed glass door for eighteen months that door had never been closed before and how am I supposed to see what you can see right through well enough about me, here's a song about you dududu dudu dudu I hit my head and I bit my tongue 'cause life was good I had a taste, yes I tasted blood and how am I supposed to be honest and true? well enough about me, here's a song about you dududu dudu dudu

so this is "the night"? the one you wrote so much about so this is "the dark" and that is starlight? so this is "the night"! and that is "the moon"? you say all we see is reflections but I can't believe you no I can't believe in you although I know what you say is true so this is "the day"? and these are sun-rays! I never thought anything but "touch" could feel so warm against my face so this is "the day"! and this ou call "noon" you say we can do what we want to but I can't believe you no I can't believe in you although I know what you say is true

on mystery beach there are wonders, but no-one is ever there to believe in them bring your sleeping bag we'll go camping and you'll get to see them by the campfire, where the mountains are dipping their feet on mystery beach mystery beach I don't know how they're doing it don't know what they're doing at all I've got no way of proving it I know what I saw on mystery beach there are miracles but you can hardly see them for the swimming girls (screaming gulls and the(ir) parasols, and the families if you all want to see something beautiful come with me, in the dawn, to where the horizon is within your reach come to mystery beach mystery beach I don't know how they're doing it don't know what they're doing at all I've got no way of proving it I know what I saw on mystery beach, in the dawn

The world it is your home but you're still just a guest the world goes on, after you've left it and there is no use feeling down the way the world keeps going round, you are welcome in the world! (but I'm already in it!) in the world there are lots of awesome people there are those you know and those you don't yet know. As long as you're not judgmental you'll be making lots of friends and you're all welcome in the world! (but I'm already in it!) the world it is your home but you're still just a guest the world goes on, after you have gone to rest there's no use wallowing in sorrow you know, you're life is only borrowed you're still welcome in the world! (but I'm already in it!) welcome in the world! (but I'm already in it!)

Hey! Do you like the sound of summer rain? Do you like popsongs on your brain? Do you like it when itches go away? Do you like finding awesome bands? Do you like mixtapes from your friends? Do you like nights that never end? And do you like when you miss your ride and someone gives you a backie on their bike If you don't like silly things like that, then, what do you like? Hey! Do you like the way I'm holding you? do you like kissing and skipping school? do you like dreaming, well I do. I know that you don't quite like romance, you like the taking off of pants and I like to take them off of you wo-o-o-o

was it cool, this work of art? and was it warm, my open heart? did you listen close? did you look inside? did i show too much, of the things I hide? well, you have to say! 'cause those are things you've gotta tell me allthough the words are gonna fail to bring it by those are things you've gotta make me understand you've gotta tell me with your hands if I had sung of big black death of chilly wind or your warm breath could it wake you up and stop your dying? and was it raining or were you crying? you didn't say! but those are things you've gotta tell me allthough with words you're gonna fail to bring it by those are things you've gotta make me understand you've gotta tell me with your hands so was it any good, my stupid album? did you like my songs although I'm no Phil Elverum and was it worth whatever you paid did you shut me up or did you let it play? well, you've got to say! those are things you've gotta tell me though your words are gonna fail to bring it by those are things you've gotta make me understand you've gotta tell me with your hands

there are walls around me huge mountains that surround me but there's a voice inside of me that says come forth friend come forth friend it says come forth friend come forth friend come all you people around me come, cross the moat that surrounds me come be the choir inside of me and say come forth friend
