Track Name: Lovers are Strangers
eyes will drift to the sky in time
while arms keep holding tight
there's a party in full force
still the guests can't help but watch the door

expressing your uncertainties
through years of anniversaries
then five years down the line
you'll say: she was never my type

lovers are strangers
there's nothing to discuss
hearts will be faithful
while the truth is told to someone else

when you look off
tell me who you really love

fall comes by surprise
looking into strange eyes
like school kids who are not friends
in the streets they are connected
huddling in the dark
the only number you call
magic moments are not lost
they'll outlive all your doubts

lovers are strangers
there's nothing to discuss
hearts will be faithful
while the truth is told to someone else

when you look off
tell me who you really love
Track Name: Aviva
Aviva, Aviva
Come on let's have a threesome
Aviva, Aviva
It's how our love must end

In the night the telephone is ringing
Someone is sleeping underneath our bed
Secrets listen in on our conversations
We know there's a boogie man in both our heads

Let this love be what it wants
It wants to be fucked up
Always been the story of
Two brunettes and a blonde

Aviva, Aviva
Come on let's have a threesome
Aviva, Aviva
The truth is always fresh

Met you in the middle of a snowstorm
Then it turned out you were living with that blonde
Soon she was looking at me sideways
Then we went round and round and round

In a dress with six arms
Two girls is not enough
Always been the story of
Two brunettes and a blonde

Aviva, Aviva
Come on let's have a threesome
Aviva, Aviva
It's how our love must end
Aviva, Aviva
Go on and call that shiksa
Aviva, Aviva
Let's all go out for lunch

Aviva, Aviva
Come on let's have a threesome
Aviva, Aviva
The truth is always fresh
Aviva, Aviva
Go on and call the shiksa
Aviva, Aviva
It's how the story ends
Track Name: Party Girl
It doesn't matter what you create
If you have no fun
Pretty girl, put down your pen
Come over here
I'll show you how it's done

I can dance
I can drink
In the dark
It's all a trick

Across the room
Across the street
I'm in the moment
Can't you see

I'm a party girl
Do a twirl
See my eyes throw a glance
Can't you tell I'm a natural
Life of a party girl
Funny girl
Make you laugh
Want me bad
Now I feel so much better

In the back of a car
I just met them tonight
And I feel like such a star

What's your name
What's your art
Nobody knows
About my broken heart

Yes I'm a party girl
Crazy girl
See my lips how they move
Can't you see I'm a natural
Life of a party girl
Sexy girl
I used to be so fragile
But now I'm so wild

What did you do last night?
Oh I was out so late now I'm so tired

I used to cry
But now I don't have the time
I used to be so fragile
But now I'm so wild
Track Name: I Kiss The Hand of My Destroyer
In her eyes
I'm drawn to the reflection of my demise
My grimace on a screen one mile high
My whole world on a plate for you to try
Relationships are compromise

I kiss the hand of my destroyer
With love I watch her watch me cry
How marvelous my house on fire

Come inside
And help yourself to anything that's mine
Kiss me 'til the tears fill up my eyes
Push me down the stairs and watch me climb
Just to see you smile

I kiss the hand of my destroyer
With love I watch her watch me cry
How marvelous my house on fire

I'll pretend I don't mind
I'll play the dying swan tonight
My feathers will fill up the sky
And fall down by your side

You are the sunshine of my life
Track Name: Left You at The Farm
you cried in the car, in the car, all the way
I just sat and waited

said I'd be with you, 'til the end, 'til the end
I left you at the farm instead

from the first, very first time she walked into my room
somehow you already knew

time to go see the stars, love has kept us hidden away
seeing things is good they say

never could understand leaving your love behind
guess that means I've changed my mind

suddenly goodbye means more than just goodbye
I won't be there when you die

said that I'd be with you, 'til the end, 'til the end
I left you at the farm
instead
I left you at the farm
instead
I left you at the farm
instead
Track Name: Friday Night
the camera spins around the room
past all the faces that I've known
I see their smiles in black and white
in the dark, friday night
my friend we share a secret:
tonight the film is turning
our shadows flashing through the halls
through the stairwells
clanking bottles

it's friday night
and there are tears in my eyes
my friends and I
are dancing in black and white

we're lonely people you and me
still we don't call too frequently
sometimes when water's burning hot
feels just like freezing cold
but I know much of you
you're my favorite asshole
tonight we'll slip away without a word the way we do
we know we'll find each other soon

on friday night
and there are tears in my eyes
my friends and I
are dancing in black and white
Track Name: I'll Be Your Woman
I'll be your woman with unwavering eyes
Aflame with the spirits and the mysteries of life
The hands of a healer and a samurai
I'll be your woman and you can be mine.

I'll be the gypsy on a path through the trees
The deal maker with front row seats
Who turns from the armchair and the picket line
I'll be your woman and you can be mine.

Not your princess, not your stallion-
an ambiguous complex creature
Not your teacher, not your shivering doll-
But hunkier than your neighbor
Not your mummy, not your daddy-
I'm over being daddy
Not your stallion, don't you lay down-
Get yourself a sailor

I'll be the mirror where you are a queen
Your fellow magician of the waking dream
Hung with a hammer and a glass of wine
I'll be your woman and you can be mine.
Track Name: Russian Ballerina (bonus track)
It takes ten years just to get
Your stinking leg up
Then five more to make it
Not look like shit

Soviet children form a crowd
Sized and tested
Who will be a star?
Hero of passion of whom they'll say
She took her final breath in grand plié

Oh! My mother!
Russian Ballerina!
You were a swan but now you're swimming in the Caribbean
Oh! My mother!
Russian Ballerina!
Nobody knows how you can live without the love of your life

Everybody's asking me:
Where is Mary?
I don't see her at the theatre
Or the parties

That's right, because
She's carving bamboo
Far from the artistic milieu
Never thought she'd live without
Allegiance to a life of art

Oh! My mother!
Russian ballerina!
You were a swan but now you're swimming in the Caribbean
Oh! My mother!
Russian ballerina!
Nobody knows how you can live without the love of your life

La la la, la la la la la (x 4)

Life changes
One day it's eggshells and bread
Married to an intellect
The next you drive a corvette

Things change
You live your life for the stage
'Til your kidney floats away
Throw in a car accident

A time for art
A time for living
Sometimes the two can be conflicting
And mama I'll meet you at Caribana
Together we're the highest form of art

Oh! My mother!
Russian Ballerina!
You were a swan but now you're swimming in the Caribbean
Oh! My mother!
Russian Ballerina!
Nobody knows how you can live without the love of your life

Oh! My mother!
Russian Ballerina!
Too bad your pirouettes now look almost as bad as mine
Oh! My mother!
Russian Ballerina!
Who needs that bullshit we can drink at the casino all night

(Everybody now!)

La la la, la la la la la (x 6)
