Tracklist

Song in My Head

length: 2:51

I've this song in my head and I know the tune
But I don't know the words
To say that the song in my head is you
And it's the best I've ever heard

It keeps me humming with a grin on my face
I even tap my foot if there's enough space
But...

If you don't feel the same way just let it be said
And I'll get this song out of my head

But if somehow this song thing is going both ways
And I'm in your mind too
Much for you to be happy with me far away
Then we both know what to do

And think of all of the fun
If we played each other on repeat one
But...

If you don't feel the same way just let it be said
And I'll get this song out of my head

What if I'm the only one of us who fell
How will I find a song that I love so well?
But...

If you don't feel the same way just let it be said
And I'll get this song out of my head

Temptation

length: 3:38
I know if I remove myself from possible harm
Temptation won't bear its charm
And I'll endure this volatile hour
But I don't think safety's the highest ideal
I'll risk a slip on the forbidden fruit's peel
And there can be a thing as too much will-power

I'll take temptation
I think I would've like Eve if I'd met her
If I do what I should than it's all good
If not, sometimes it's even better
I'll take temptation
Go ahead, give the Devil a foothold
I'd rather be singed by the heat than left out in the cold

I know: keep a crowd away from a riot
Avoid chocolate shops when on a diet
Keep temptation far at bay
But to not even have a choice
It's like losing your voice
I'd rather risk going astray

I'll take temptation
I think I would've like Eve if I'd met her
If I do what I should than it's all good
If not, sometimes it's even better
I'll take temptation
Go ahead, give the Devil a foothold
I'd rather be singed by the heat than left out in the cold

Go ahead, go ahead
And tempt me
I think I will be okay...

I'll take temptation
Go ahead, give the Devil a foothold
I'd rather be singed by the heat than left out in the cold

Hard to Get

length: 4:13
If I were the Holy Grail
I wouldn’t lead you down some rat-infested trail
I’d be right there on aisle four
Of your favorite grocery store

And if I were a treasure chest
I wouldn’t make you sail for me from the east to the west
I’d leave you directions on a Hallmark card
Where I was hiding in your front yard

Cause, oh, I’ve read
I should play cold and unimpressed
But I know, instead,
At that game I’d just be rotten
So, like I’ve said,
Just as I can’t play cold and unimpressed
It’s very hard for me to play hard to get
When I want so much to be gotten

If I were a law degree
I wouldn’t make you work for years to pay off me
I’d give you fifteen scholarships
Every time you kissed my lips

And if I were the keys to your car
I wouldn’t make you hunt for me from garage to boudoir
I’d stay right near your finger
So you always would remember

Cause, oh, I’ve read
I should play cold and unimpressed
But I know, instead,
At that game I’d just be rotten
So, like I’ve said,
Just as I can’t play cold and unimpressed
It’s very hard for me to play hard to get
When I want so much to be gotten

And if I were a pot of gold
I wouldn’t make you chase rainbows till you grew old
I’d be there, in all kinds of weather,
So we could grow old, together

Cause, oh, I’ve read
I should play cold and unimpressed
But I know, instead,
At that game I’d just be rotten
So, like I’ve said,
Just as I can’t play cold and unimpressed
It’s very hard for me to play hard to get
When I want so much to be gotten

Interlude

length: 1:13

Connoisseur

length: 3:11
When I say that your lips taste the best, it’s not just because I love you
It’s because, I must confess, oui, tu dois savoir
Je suis en connoisseur

When I say you keep me candlelit, It’s not just because I love you
It’s because, I must admit, oui, tu dois savoir
Je suis en connoisseur

Je suis du l’expert du l’amour
Je suis du l’expert du basairs
Et l’amour ette du vin
Je soiree une sommelier

When I say that I thirst for your touch
It’s not just because I love you
It’s because I know so much, oui, tu dois savoir
Je suis en connoisseur

It’s not like I’ve been round the bistro
It’s just that I know what I know
And when it comes to you and me
I say “oui!”

Je suis du l’expert du l’amour
Je suis du l’expert du basairs
Et l’amour ette du vin
Je soiree une sommelier

Fred Astaire

length: 2:55

Now I live day to day
Most of us live that way
We've jobs to work and chores to shirk
And those bills to pay

I've tired of this routine
I want a different scene
To sit and sigh as life goes by
Just isn't for me

I'll dance backwards in high heels and perfect hair
Twirl my twirls in satin negligee
If you'll be my Fred Astaire

Martinis and champagne
Dancing in the rain
At each soiree gay repartee
Each summer in Spain

Why be content with less
Than life lived at its best?
The safe and sane may choose mundane
But let's effervesce, baby

I'll dance backwards in high heels and perfect hair
Twirl my twirls in satin negligee
If you'll be my Fred Astaire

Let's have a glamorous romance
Who cares if we dance to the beat of a different drum?
Pa-rumpa-rumpa-rumpar-um-par-um
Bah dum

I'll dance backwards in high heels and perfect hair
Twirl my twirls in satin negligee
If you'll be my Fred Astaire
I'll dance backwards in high heels and perfect hair
Twirl my twirls in satin negligee
If you'll be my Fred Astaire

Mailbox

length: 2:56
Your name's still on the mailbox

I still buy your soap, I've still got that hope

But I refuse to shrug my shoulders and sigh

Or say goodbye to you

Cause what if you come back?

What if you come back?



How could you run? You said I was""the one,""

You said we'd be together come rain, come sun

Whether scaling the highest rocks

Or sorting through piles of socks

Was it the day-to-day made you not want to stay?

Chores to do and the bills to pay?

But, see, that's when I loved you best

And that's why I must confess that



Your name's still on the mailbox

The address change went through: I get nothing for you

But I refuse to shrug my shoulders and sigh

Or say goodbye to you

Cause what if you come back?

What if you come back to me?

What if you come back?

Ambitious

length: 3:16
Self-described, baby, I’m a go-getter
Things I want, things that I want to be
I’ve got lists, like those left for a sitter
Things to do and places to be

But with you, like this, in the aftertaste of a kiss
I cannot imagine more bliss
So tomorrow, I’ll go back to ambitious
But tonight, I’m completely content

Life couldn’t be more grand if I owned Disney Land
I hope this doesn’t mean I’ve got a low self esteem
It’s just you’ve made my life much better than it’s ever been

CEOs have their own private beaches
Move stars, a penthouse with a view
I’d like both and more within reach, please
But tonight I am completely happy with you

Yes, with you, like this, n the aftertaste of a kiss
I cannot imagine more bliss
So tomorrow, I’ll go back to ambitious
But tonight, I’m completely content

I'm Dumb

length: 2:48
I am rather clever
I’ve failed the test never
But I'm dumb when it comes to you

I should see the signs and
Steer clear of mines
But I'm dumb when it comes to you

Am I a hopeless case or
Will I ever learn the basics
Or have I earned my place back in A, B, C
And two plus two, for
Thought I’m rather well-read
My education's not completed
I'm dumb when it comes to you.

My senses are blinded
I'm now absent-minded
I’m dumb when it comes to you

In some tongues, I'm fluent
But yours? Incongruent
I'm dumb when it comes to you.

Am I a hopeless case or
Will I ever learn the basics
have earned my place back in A, B, C,
And two plus two, for
Though I’m rather well-read
My education's not completed
I'm dumb when it comes to you

I'm dumb when it comes to you

Exciting

length: 3:25
I’ve this fear that’s pinned me to the wall
Though I know you love me, and all
You’ve no intention of looking around
But there’s this one worry I’ve found
Interests fade in and out with ease
So answer this question for me, please

Will I be exciting to you?
Please, through sun and through rain
Let me remain exciting to you

Say we’re lost in a lone desert isle
Area just one square mile
And for the sake of keeping things neat
We’ve plenty to drink and to eat
Will I still thrill you as the sand thrills the sea
If so, answer this question for me, please

Will I be exciting to you?
Please, through sun and through rain
Let me remain exciting to you

So are you sure that you want to stay,
Though new choices appear every day?
And before the years pile on years
I bet you to quiet my fears
Will my lips be where you want to be?
If so, answer this question for me, please

Will I be exciting to you?
Please, through sun and through rain
Let me remain exciting to you
