Track Name: Oh Lover
Oh lover
How could I ever not have known
Oh lover
That one day you would come
I'm sorry for the times I spent alone
Or I wasted playing round with others
Oh lover
Once I didn't love you
But now you have me thrown

Oh lover
How could you ever not have know
Lover
That one day I would come
I love you but how can I condone
Times you spoke the same soft words to others
Oh lover
And times you shook in wonder
Oh lover
How could you ever not have known

I thought I'd known love but stayed controlled
I thought I'd known fire but I'd stayed cold
I never wanted to have or to hold
But god, you are here and my life's foretold
God you are here
Please do not go

Oh lover
How could we possibly have known
Lover
Why feel we must atone
For those days when you were not my own
We moved closer, though it was with others
We did what we had to
To find this love unknown
Oh lover
How could we possibly have known

I thought I'd known love but stayed controlled
I thought I'd known fire but I'd stayed cold
I never wanted to have or to hold
But god, you are here and my life's foretold

I thought I'd known love but stayed controlled
I thought I'd known fire but I'd stayed cold
I never wanted to have or to hold
But god, you are here and my life's foretold

God you are here
Please do not go
Track Name: Good Morning, Midnight
Good morning, Midnight
You come knocking but I've grown wise
I know you, Midnight
You tease, you tempt, you tantalise
I'd won the fight
I'm a nice girl now, shampooed and set
But still you call
Should I give up, forsake it all?

Good morning, Midnight
I've missed your warm breath
Against my skin as I slip outside
Away from where I felt warm and safe
And longed for these ecstatic nights
Midnight, I couldn't care less
I'm a sucker for your delights
I may drown but I'm drawn to your depths
'Cause no man holds me so tight

For all I'd tried
There are needs that I had denied
Lights and the dark
And the memories of Blakers Park

Good morning, Midnight
I've missed your warm breath
Against my skin as I slip outside
Away from where I felt warm and safe
And longed for these ecstatic nights
Midnight, I couldn't care less
I'm a sucker for your delights
I may drown but I'm drawn to your depths
'Cause no man holds me so tight

You know me, Midnight
That I'd surrender to your vampire's bite
So, be my guest
I am yours now, no more regrets
My hair's undone
I press against you and softly moan
You knew I would
I am Midnight's and I'm no good

Good morning, Midnight
I've missed your warm breath
Against my skin as I slip outside
Away from where I felt warm and safe
And longed for these ecstatic nights
Midnight, I couldn't care less
I'm a sucker for your delights
I may drown but I'm drawn to your depths
'Cause no man holds me so tight

Good morning, Midnight
Track Name: He Knows My Name
Lover, I'm scared
There's something wrong
There's a man in my bed and you have gone
He knows my name
Says I'm to blame
For you going away and what he's become

Sir, am I going crazy?
There's no way you could know me
Just who are you?
I will not let you break me
I'll stand strong, you won't shake me
Where is my boy?

Everything's strange
This man's wearing your clothes, he has your face
How's he know where we first kissed?
There was love in this house

Where my boy would speak softly
Of how he'd always love me
Harsh words, disdain
As you try to convert me
Every word hewn to hurt me
Bring back my boy

Love, he wants to destroy me
But I won't let him kill me
I'll wait for you
Let his fists fly right through me
Eyes closed tight til you save me
Love, where are you?

Let his fists fly right through me
Eyes closed tight til you save me
Love, where are you?
Track Name: Last Song
Pleasure's overrated
That much I know
Though I have oft been sated
Both above and below
Here's my bed
I've made it
And many times laid
I've done it all
I'm jaded and fear I may be unmade

Will you love or loathe me for my litany
Of lovers tasted, others lost?
Yes, I plead guilty
Tell me, when I'm gone what will you say of me?
Will I be wished eternal bliss or left forsaken?

Heartbreak piercing silence
I cried as we lay
I had it all
I know it now and fear that I threw it away

Will they burn or bless me for my litany?
My honour damned I grasped each chance
Defied tomorrow
Tell me, when I'm gone what will they say of me?
Will I be missed by those I kissed
Or die forgotten, left forsaken?

So, in the end
Will I be forgiven?
There at the end
When all has been weighed?

My looks and charms are faded
My virtues betrayed
I called my tune and played it
And now I fear I must pay

Will they adore or damn me for my litany
Of chances taken, honour lost
And nothing counted?
Tell me, when I'm gone what will my legend be?
Somebody loved and always held
In hearts of others or forsaken?

So, in the end
Will I be forgiven?
Here at the end
When all has been weighed?
There, at the end
Will I be forgiven?
Here at the end
When all's done and said?
Then, at the end
Will I be forgiven?
Here at the end
When all has been weighed?
Friends, in the end
Will I be forgiven?
There at the end
When all's done and said?
God, in the end
Will I be forgiven?
Now at the end
When all has been weighed?
So, in the end
Will I be forgiven?
There at the end
When all has been weighed?
Now, at the end
Will I be forgiven?
Here at the end
When all's done and said?
Then, in the end
Will I be forgiven?
Here at the end
When all has been weighed?
Love, in the end
Will I be forgiven?
