Track Name: Half-Night
Half light, I beg,
Turn yourself around
You shine me out of my reason
Slow evening,
Kick off the sun
'Cause

In the night, that's when he'll stay
In the night, that when he'll stay

This time
I had my heart in my pocket
Held the world up on a string
Singing up :
''Make it last!''
'Cause

In the night, that's when you'll stay
In the night, that's when you'll stay

Now I got voices inside my head
Trying to tell me that you're miles ahead
Trying to tell me that we're miles apart
Trying to take me back to the start

In the night, I hear them say...
In the night, I hear them say...

O-o-oh
Track Name: Laughter
I'm running on
I lost the road
But I will fin-in-ind my love
Or lack thereof

I know the way
You climb into your lair
Yeah I've been hi-hi-hiding there
Strange, strange love affair

But on the back of your laughter there's still
A chase I know
It's written on the back of the coasters in
Every place you go

Oooh

I'm counting time
I feel lost away, but I will
La-ha-ha-ha-ha-augh
In the cra-a-a-a-a-acks
I see your alibies fade

But on the back of my laughter there's still
A chase you know
It's written on the back of the coasters in
Every place I'll go

Oooh

Peeking out 'cause when you
O-o-open there's bad news at the door
Speaking out for you
To-o-old me of what you're aiming for
Thrown back in its place
Yours and my own disgrace

But on the back of our laugher there's still
A chase we know
It's written on the back of the coasters
Every place we'll go

Oooh
Track Name: Disguise
I'm standing outside the door
I don't believe there'll be an encore
The day is young and the bed
Is still imprinted on the side of my head
It was you who lead me to depart
And I'll be stronger when we're
Many moons apart

But in my camouflage
I'll be missing you
Don't know who we are
But I'm willing to find out
If it's true
That dreams all unwind
Then I'm sure
That there's room in disguise
for you and I

Wear and sheets on the floor
You ain't the one that I yearned for
Leave love behind unwed
I'll be all from you but mislead
I walk slow, but steady and armed
When I'm further down the road
I'll be safe from harm

But in my camouflage
I'll be missing you
Don't know who we are
But I'm going to find out
If it's true
That fears all subside
Then I'm sure
That there's room in disguise
For you and I (you and I)
For you and I
For you and I (you and I)
For you and I



And you can
Brace yourself
And remember, and remember
You could
Save yourself
From going under, going under
If you
Rest your case
And never, and never cease
To love
To love


But in my camouflage
I'll be missing you
Don't know who we are
But I'm willing to find out
If it's true
That dreams all unwind
Then I'm sure
That there's room in disguise

In my camouflage
I'll be missing you
Don't know who we are
But I'm going to find out
If it's true
That fears all subside
Then I'm sure
That there's room in disguise
For you and I (you and I)
For you and I
For you and I (you and I)
For you and I
Track Name: Pearl in the Shell
Aah
There's a window by the timber, by the lake
Where I
Can see reflections of my further fate
Out by the corner she bates in the crimson fall
And lies atop what shelter I used to call

I
Used to revel in the flowers of my estate
Now
I am but only reaching for the rake
But you beg :
''Stop trying to pull it; let your kingdom come...
Watch it fill out at the touch of a green thumb''


Well if only I could rest my mind
If only I could rest my mind, Ooh-ooh
If only I could rest my mind
Take me out of my head
I'm trapped in a self-cell


I've
Been acquainted to the frame of a quiet grin
When you know there's nothing your words can do
To lure me in
But you say :
''Get your hinges on a spin; quit lurking in the dark...
Sing it out loud, the anthem of your heart''


Well if only I could rest my mind
If only I could rest my mind, Ooh-ooh
If only I could rest my mind
Take me out of my head
I'm trapped in a self-cell
A pearl in the shell



Well if only I could rest my mind
If only I could rest my mind, Ooh-ooh
If only I could rest my mind
Take me out of my head
I'm trapped in a self-cell
A pearl in the shell

Now
There's a window by the timber, by the lake
Where I
Can see reflections of my further fate
She says :
''Get me out of my head I've been trapped in a self-cell...''

Oooh

A pearl in the shell
Track Name: Days
Days of plunder
To never again be tripped and torn asunder
There's a route I better keep in sight
Past the ruins of the olden sites

Days of hopeless wonder
I find solace in slumber
There's a truth I better keep inside
I'll be damned if it fall in the limelight

This ain't a life, playing lost and found
This ain't a life, playing lost and found
And I stand by my crude but sole relief
Prude to make the days brief

Days of bruises and fire
Coming along but now laying on the pyre
And when days are long and run me with rage
Maybe fool but I'll be wholesome again


This ain't a life, playing lost and found
This ain't a life, playing lost and found
And I stand by my crude but sole relief
Prude to make the days brief


Oh...

And at the root of all the harm I've done
There were wounds I hadn't learn to own
For the truth is I was scared to love
And was only brave enough to run

Oh...
