Track Name: Germany
I’m gone to some degree
But these feet are the roots of a tree
So I’m chained to this place
By some feeling I can’t yet escape
Once more I took for granted another week that I’ve had to unwind
Thank God for second chances, stop me losing my poor fucking mind

I was talking to a girl in Germany
About her brother’s punk band that I’ve got to see
And how her best friend is moving to Manchester
And we should hook up when you’re visiting her

This town is wearing thin
But an ocean is raging within
Airports and sleeper trains
Oh, God I can’t wait to see her again
Track Name: A Notion
I’ve been taking you the long way around
I kind of thought that you would know by now
But once again it falls down to my restless soul
To make questionable choices on the road

Now, I’m not trying to say my love’s not real
And I’m not trying to say how bad I feel
There’s just one person I can never second-guess
And the psycho sadly occupies my head

But baby, I got a notion
That we could buy a little house by the ocean
And spend our days living in blissful meditation
I just need someone who will come with me
I needed something to believe

I hadn’t seen her since we both left school
We went our own ways and made our own rules
So when I saw her standing right next to the stage
Well I gave myself to possibility
I thought I had my life under control
Thought I possessed a truth no man could hold
I never gave you half the credit you deserve
And I swear each year I’m only getting worse
