Track Name: Maintenance
Maintenance that’s what I’m
Into these days
The guitar, the car,
My body, my heart

Maintenance keep appointments
Make new ones
Think fast, talk clear, concentrate
Don’t loose the grip

I sleep enough
I eat enough
Floating floating

Maintenance that’s what I’m
Into these days
The ceiling, the stars, my things
And the ones I don’t have

Maintenance throw the garbage
Put a new bag
Get in, go out, calculate smile
Don’t get caught

I sleep enough
I eat enough
Floating floating
Track Name: Airports
I know you’re here
But I can’t see you
I feel you still
I cannot hear you

The words are clear
But what’s the meaning
I know you’re here
But something’s missing

Love knows no fear
You told me so
In a big tent long time ago
The time has passed
But I stood still
I need you back
To make things clear

Airports airports
I’m getting small
Big streets buildings
I can’t recall

Why did I start
What did I want
Why did I stop
Where do I go
Track Name: Talk Talk Talk
Most of the people
Talk talk talk
Most of the people
Are addicted to themselves
Pretend they’re listening
So they can go on
Inventing answers for questions
That you never had

Most of the people
Block block block
Most of the people
Always seem to be o.k
Go in go out just not to be alone
And wake up tired knowing
There is something they forget

Just make some waves
Create a buzz
You should be fine
If not come back

Most of the people
Want more more more
Of no matter what no matter why
No matter where
Most of the people
Talk talk talk
Most of the people
Are addicted

Just make some waves
Create a buzz
You should be fine
If not come back
Track Name: I'm Not Mad
I’m not mad, I’m just sad
I’m not jealous, it’s just my stomach

Its too bad, things got hard
I’m not worried
Life’s full of presents

And what name should I call you
Next time we talk
It took so long to find this one

And what else could I tell you
Next time we talk
Yes my grandma is well
How's your father take care

I'm not responsible
For your aging anymore
It's not my fault
That time keeps on passing

I'm not mad, I'm just sad
I'm not jealous

And what name should I call you
Next time we talk
It took so long to find this one

And what else could I tell you
Next time we talk
Yes my grandma is well
How's your father take care
Track Name: My Face
I breath in I breath out
In french and in english
I dream and I make love
I loose and I find

I get up and wonder
In hebrew and spanish
I listen to my voice
With ears that aren’t mine

My face before I was born was the same
My language before I could talk
Had its place

I breath in I breath out
Straight and in circles
With eyes closed and open
I see the same things

Mothers calling children
It’s time to go back now
The table is set
And the food’s getting cold

My face before I was born was the same
My language before I could talk
had its place

I breath in, I breath out
Track Name: Lay a Finger
Who do you need permission from
To get up in the morning
Who do you need permission from
To breath the air in deep
Who do you need permission from
To look as far ahead as you can
Who do you need permission from
To be

Lay a finger near the nose
Wait until you feel your pulse and follow
Close your eyes and open wide
Things look different if you decide

To get up in the morning
If you decide
To breath the air in deep
If you decide
To look as far ahead as you can
If you decide
To be

Lay a finger near the nose
Wait until you feel your pulse
And follow
Close your eyes and open wide
Things look different if you decide
Track Name: Abuela (Grandma)
Go on you’re done here
Everything’s ready
Nothing is missing
The house is clean

God is the helper
Of early wakers
You’ve been up for so long
Just close your eyes

All the books that you read
All the sweaters you made
Go with you go with me

All your sayings are laid
All your nights all your days
Go with you go with me

In the first world war
You smuggled flour
In hidden pockets
Sewed to your skirt

A bird that ate
Is a bird that fled
You belong there now
Unfold your wings

All the books that you read
All the sweaters you made
Go with you go with me

All your sayings are laid
All your nights all your days
Go with you go with me
Track Name: What's the Prize
What’s the prize for not falling asleep
What’s the prize for not watching T.V
What’s the prize for not sleeping
With everyone

What’s the prize for not needing to know
What’s the prize for letting you go
What’s the prize for not running away When you can

Had the best dream ever last night
Saw your face getting bigger
And turning into the sun
I woke up with a smile on my face
I don’t want any more I don’t need any less

What’s the prize for not nodding your head
What’s the prize for not saying a word
What’s the prize for not moving
Your hands all the time

What’s the prize for not winning the game
What’s the prize for not knowing your name
What’s the prize for not needing
Somebody to blame
Track Name: I stop
I stop myself from feeling
Stop my self from falling down

I stop my self from calling
Stop my self from getting up

I want someone that smells like you
Feels like you sleeps like you

I want someone that sees like you
Needs like you dreams like you

I stop myself from knowing
Stop myself from asking why

I stop myself from showing
Stop myself from getting dry

I want someone that smells like you
Feels like you sleeps like you

I want someone that sees like you
Needs like you dreams like you
Track Name: Save Changes
Winter is coming
I am not ready yet
Just learned how to make
All kinds of soup

In kindergarden
I would beat up the other kids
I don’t know why
I’m thinking of this

Save changes save changes
Save changes save changes

Police man walking by me
I look the other way
As if they knew about something
I haven’t done (yet)

Breathing costs money now
We’re not kids any more

Save changes…
