Track Name: Mother Goose
Norway House - Mother Goose - Lyrics

You’ve been living in a halfway home.
Called out you don’t bemoan.
But you want me to fall in love with you.

You want to shut me down and cut me loose.
Fucked up like mother goose.
But you want me to fall in love with you.

Tell me that you’re out of control. Tell me you want to know.
You’ve been so miserable.

Take you out and you’re full of gloom.
You’ve been stuck in your room.
But you want me to fall in love with you.

You want love like you want to know.
You’ve been so good and old.
Tell me that your world is cold.
But I’ve just got to know
Track Name: Heart Contusion
Norway House - Heart Contusion - Lyrics

Come back to me, come back to me, my heart’s forming a back contusion
I guess it’s only love that I am after.
Come back to me, come back to me, I’m turning into someone who’s losing his head.
It’s only love that I am after.

It’s only love that I am after. And my heart won’t say no.

Come back to me, come back to me, my heart’s developed wall surrounding its ports.
It’s only love that I was after.

It’s only love that I was after. But my heart won’t say no.
Track Name: All My Life
All My life, I couldn’t speak. Working at this company.
All my life I’ve spent here giving all.
That I had, my energy. All my time, why don’t you see?
All my life here at this company.

All my life, oh can’t you see?
All my life, give back to me.
Track Name: Why Do I Work So Hard
Norway House - Why Do I work So Hard - Lyrics
I’m bettering; I’m bettering; myself I guess; just to impress.
Someone that I, have never met; I’m bettering; myself for them.

But I don’t know how I can act so insincere.
Changing my ways so that I can appear.
Better to them; picked off the stem.

But my heart isn’t in this; I can’t make it so.
I know I should stay; but I just want to go
Don’t ask me something; that I don’t know.

What could I do? It’s up to you
Carrying me to the sea.

--------------

My head is going go to insane.
But I’m happy and amazed at how long it’s been.
This is just a never-ending dream.

Oh why; do I work so hard.

My brain is fried, I’m taking a break.
I’m happy just sit here; oh I can relate.
It’s tough, moving, from where you came.

How could you say that you know me?
How could it be – I’ve been here only.
Track Name: Help Yourself
Take this opening line
And make it a rhyme.
Come help yourself
Track Name: Running out of Steam
God damn you’re a little too late
Hallowed, reciprocate
Calm down a little too soon
Your body’s on right but your head is still loose.

Saline; satellite
Taking off tonight.
Holed up; a little too late.
Your mind is off track but your body’s still on straight.
------------------
I feel like I’m running out of steam
------------------
Step up, back to the wind.
What is this happening?
Calm down a little too soon
Your body’s on right but your head is still loose.
------------------
I feel like I’m running out of steam
Track Name: Pass me By
I won’t let time pass me by this year.
It’s not a feeling that I wish to hear.
Make yourself at home when you are here.

This year won’t pass me by.
Time will stop to fly.
Teach yourself a new, thing or two.
Track Name: Don't Let the Devil Bring You to His Side
Don’t let the devil bring you to his side - Lyrics

I guess I’d be better off without.
Doing what I’d want to do, knowing things that I should never.
Have shown you, who are you, what is it we figured out?
Tell me that you want to know, all the things I’ve ever been without.

I wouldn’t cross the line.
Stuck in this c ell over time.
I wouldn’t cross the line.
Don’t let the devil bring you to his side
Well I wouldn’t cross the line, I wouldn’t cross the line.

Alcohol and cigarettes are things that I would not regret.
Giving me a sense of all, burning up my
Soul, I don’t know, what it is I’d like to know.
Tell me that you want to be, all the things I’ve ever been without.
Track Name: Merry Christmas
Have a merry Christmas and we’ll see you when we’re back in town.
Sending you are wishing and we hope you know that we love you.
Christmas time is very special.
It’s no time to be anti-social
Track Name: Stand up and be Shallow
Norway House – Stand up and be Shallow

I don’t mind if you ask me to stand up and be shallow.
To hole up in my heart anymore.
I wouldn’t try to combat this case.
to stand up and be shallow.
To hole up in my heart anymore.

Don’t you try to get close to me.
Don’t you ever be a part of me.
I’m apart from you.
Track Name: Wait for your Boy
Norway House - Wait for your Boy - Lyrics

Wait ‘till your boy, comes back to the city.
When he brings you back something oh so pretty.
You’ve got to wait for your boy to come back and destroy one of your pretty little antique cups.

And you’ll wait for your boy to come home and get high.
From the plans that were made and the life that awaits.
(Oh and wait for your boy to come back home into your life.)
Oh and wait for your boy. In the end it’s alright.

Wait ‘till your boy, comes back home.

Wait ‘till your boy finds his way back home.
And you will never spend your time alone.
You’ve got to wait for your boy to come back and destroy one of your pretty little antique cups.
Track Name: What Could it Be?
Norway House - What Could It Be – Lyrics
What could I be in a moment here or two? Set into motion.
Such much change; so many choices here to choose; stuck in commotion.

What could it be in a moment here or two

What could I be? It’s my life I have to lose; if I do nothing.
I could get a law degree or two; then I’d have choices.
Track Name: Come and Join Us
You prop me up on the table; my god you think that I am Able. But you.
Ask how we ever could have got here. But you don’t want to know the answer. But I do.
Come on and join us, oh won’t you join us?
We set the table oh please join use.
You don’t know what you’re missing if you stay back.
So come and joins us

So come and give us a quick answer. We’re looking forward hearing from you. Oh you.
Track Name: Folk Epic
Norway House – Folk Epic – Lyrics

Someday, I’ll be sitting alone.
Hoping you’d be next to your phone.
And I would just call you.
But I know, that the world is waiting just for us

Tell me, you’ve been searching for love.
I could comfort you in a month.
And I would just be there, in a flash
Like the sun is rising just for us.

Even if you are shooting on a star waiting just for light.
Maybe if you want, be there if you are, holding back for more.
Come on and dance!

Call me up, waiting on a Tuesday.
I don’t want the feeling to get used to.
Tell a friend, maybe we can see.
Let me know. But I won’t.

I don’t want to wake up in December.
Feel my life slipping in November.
On the way back to common sense.
Let me know. But I won’t.

I don’t want to hold up in October.
Feel the rain, pouring in September.
Count me in, out of what I want let me know.

I’d never leave you darling with carbon monoxide stuck in the side of my soul.

Come on can you hurt me but the pain still slips away.
And everyone knows. And everything goes.

When the rain hits your face like a big mistake you’ll go crying on and on and I’ll just sit here on my lawn.

When the rain, when the rain comes down. When the rain comes down.

I feel like I’m losing my mind.
Maybe it’s surely in time.
Maybe I wouldn’t guess, maybe I would
Figure I should just rest. Is that all for the best?
But the pain still stands.
