Stars This Charming Man

Punctured bicycle on a hillside desolate

Will nature make a man of me yet?

When in this charming car

This charming man

Why pamper life’s complexities

When the leather runs smooth on the passenger seat?

I would go out tonight

But I haven’t got a stitch to wear

This man said, “It’s gruesome

That someone so handsome should care”

A jumped-up pantry boy who never knew his place

He said, “Return the ring”

He knows so much about

He knows so much about these things

And I would go out tonight

But I haven’t got a stitch to wear

Oh, yeah

This man said, “It’s gruesome

That someone so handsome should care”

Stars Today Will Be Better, I Swear!

When you can’t get up to the cold morning light

But you don’t get to sleep in [still dreaming]

And everybody only wants to fight

You’re up against never being right

When the worries of the world hold your feet

And there’s little left to believe in

Today is going to be a better one

There’s nothing more to take in

That’s going wrong

Old pale memories of someone you knew

Keep crawling through the back of your mind [stealing time]

In the daylight you’re crossing all your wires

You never knew just how to put out a fire

The closet’s been shaking with bones

Little reminders that you’re out on your own

Today is going to be a better one

There’s nothing more to take in

That’s going wrong

Today keep your head and drop the gun

There’s nothing more to battle when you’re gone

Walk on

Stars What The Snowman Learned About Love

“I am Evan and this is my heart, I am Amy and this is my heart, I am Chris this is my heart, I am Touque

This is my heart.”

How the heart bends, and summer she sends a sky that refuses to die

With weeds of the sea that wrap round our knees and a sun too hot to go down

You come around, you come around, you come around, you come around, you come around, you come around,

You come around

How the heart bends, and summer she sends a sky that refuses to die

With weeds of the sea that wrap round our knees, and a sun too hot to go down

You come around, you come around, you come around, you come around, you come around, you come around,

You come around

You come around, you come around, you come around, you come around, you come around, you come around,

You come around

Stars Your Ex-Lover Is Dead

God that was strange to see you again

Introduced by a friend of a friend

Smiled and said ‘yes I think we’ve met before’

In that instant it started to pour,

Captured a taxi despite all the rain

We drove in silence across Pont Champlain

And all of the time you thought I was sad

I was trying to remember your name…

This scar is a fleck on my porcelain skin

Tried to reach deep but you couldn’t get in

Now you’re outside me

You see all the beauty

Repent all your sin

It’s nothing but time and a face that you lose

I chose to feel it and you couldn’t choose

I’ll write you a postcard

I’ll send you the news

From a house down the road from real love…

Live through this, and you won’t look back…

Live through this, and you won’t look back…

Live through this, and you won’t look back…

There’s one thing I want to say, so I’ll be brave

You were what I wanted

I gave what I gave

I’m not sorry I met you

I’m not sorry it’s over

I’m not sorry there’s nothing to say

I’m not sorry there’s nothing to say…

Stars Wasted Daylight

Heat is a heavy head

Keeps me in my bed

Push aside the pillow

The whole room just turned yellow

Three in the afternoon

We still haven’t moved

Siren sighs echo

A pulse through our window

[Chorus]

I don’t mind, I don’t mind

This wasted, shaded daylight

I don’t mind, I don’t mind

This wasted, shaded daylight

Pull in the body to twist

The thighs, the heels, the hips

Constellation markings

Across your body, drawings

Telephone rings

But we’ll just let it sing

Hide out till tomorrow

I crawl into your shadow

[Chorus]

[Chorus to close]

[Background to close]

In the way your hand hits the wave

In between the dreamer and the breath

Long beside the bitter of the skin

Today won’t know when to begin

Stars Midnight Coward

Sweetness, sweetness never suits me, when I get up to take you home

Maybe it’s love, love at first slightly drunk

Now I’m walking with the sun in my mouth

Worry, worry is a well, going to let it fall tonight, from where we stand

What can’t be decided

In the morning it will bring itself to you

I can see what’s coming, but I’m not saying it

Sickness, weakness at the thought, of how you’re going to play

How long should I stay?

Promises, promises never cease to assist it, now I’m back on my back

Please bite your words

Hurry, hurry to believe, I can always trust, as much as you deceive

What can’t be decided

In the morning it will bring itself to you

I can see what’s coming, but I’m not saying it

What’s your middle name? How do you play the game?

I’ll be the first to leave

When did I grow up? I don’t want to say too much

I’ll be the first to leave

What can’t be decided

In the morning it will bring itself to you

What can’t be decided

Can fool you into thinking maybe you can choose

I can see what’s coming

But I’m not saying it

Stars The Theory Of Relativity

Set your mind on mine for the part

Before they catch you baby

And never be just what they want you to be

Now that you’ve grown so wise

Use that head and stop to think a little

Just cause you’re crazy doesn’t mean that you’re free

Back in lame grade ten I was a total devastator, baby

Found in the school yard, they all fell to their knees

But it can’t be ’93 sadly cause I wish it could forever

You call it luck I call it tragedy

What would you say

If I fell apart, could you bring me back then

What would you say

If I fell apart, could you bring me back?

We got a rock DJ,

We got a total fucking alcoholic

We got a thing they call a cyber-girl

One more patient please for the dude who sold us Ecstasy

He’s building homes now in the new third world

The snow just keeps on falling in Hawaii, under station’s west

Find someone close and hold them like you care

This is a race to the end and I don’t intend to win it baby

You go ahead, I’m gonna meet you there

B, A, D used to talk of relativity

That was way back when everyone was scared

Now that we’re deep inside, the wise there’s a place to hide

You can do things they would’ve never dared

What would you say

If I fell apart? Could you bring me back then?

What would you say

If I fell apart? Could you bring me back?

So don’t get scared

What would you say?

There will be things we never dared

If I fell apart, could you bring me back then?

So don’t get scared

What would you say?

There will be things we never dared

If I fell apart, could you bring me back then?

Don’t be scared, there will be things we never dared

Don’t be scared, there will be things we never dared
