Track Name: Empty Dress
her empty dress she use to wear
is hanging on my bannister
the smell of cinnamon of her hair

if i do
you care
about her empty dress

her empty dress she use to wear
i try my best to avoid the stares
the car outside relfect this tear

if i do
you care
about her empty dress
Track Name: Cora
oh mum what's happening to your hair?
oh mum tell me why are you so scared?
told me that you'd be getting better soon
but i've been lied to since i was two
oh mum why are we leaving dad?
and what did he do to make you so sad?
where will we go? what will we do?
i need him. oh mum take me home!

if the sun don't shine no more
would you stay beside me?

mum this world can be so mean
so i put on my brave face show no vulnerability
oh mum I've grown so tired without you
and i really needed you when i was 22
oh mum you know i love dad
but he's done some things that have me so sad
and where will i go? and what will i do?
i just lost my soulmate forever
oh mum you would have liked her

if the sun don't shine no more
would you stay beside me?
if the sun don't shine anymore
would you stay beside me?

padre pio's glove did nothing for you
and this is for
all the mother's days we've missed out on

when i found a rose covered in snow
by your grave
it let me know
you were still beside me
Track Name: Woody Allen
Seen it coming
and i did nothing

it's hard to be alone
crying to God on a telephone

Seen it coming
and i did nothing

it's hard to be alone
crying to God on a telephone
today was the worst day i've ever known
tomorrow has to be better
Track Name: Canal Banks
son these days won't come again
spending days in showers, in the pouring rain
stream of dreams, manmade
near the canal bank and i wait
on my counter there are tickers
for an airplane, should i go?
should i go?
i've been living at my friend's
for the summer, i can't complain
everyone's been so good to me
it seems a shame
near the canal bank, i'll wait
and on my shoulders there lies a world of weight
should i go?
i can't tell the future or if i'll stay
if you'd hear from me again
you've been so good to me
it seems a shame
and near the canal bank i will wait
and in my hopes i have wished for this change
should i go?

in the smoke i lost my sight
animals tried to eat me up
try as they might
i came back here black eyed
smoked a cigarette, you drew a bath for me
you've been so good to me
and i ask you
should i go?
