Always think I wish that I knew more The TV made me think about it today It said "I hope they knew" And I really hope you do How I loved you Through and through There was nothing I wanted more Than for you to love me Please see That you tore me in two The man that I am today The boy you see If that was the last that we met Would you be happy? Can you forget about the past And all that you said to me? What about those words? What about those plans? Though I still feel it now This is me saying goodbye This is me saying goodbye
2.
Take this piece of my hair Plant it in your garden by the sea Watch it grow into an oak Watch it grow into a dream Love, like the moon loves the waves Join me Love, drifting away Save me I can't shake this memory A puddle glistening in the sum Watch the ripples spread into a wave Watch them spread into a wave goodbye. If I was a girl and you were a boy What chance would fate Choose to deploy If all we have and our last chance is gone Then give me something to which to hold on When you touch me When you touch me I am just a shadow in the sun In the sun
3.
Do you remember what it felt like When sparks flew For you? Do you remember what it felt like When your heart sank The first time? I don't want to go on without it, now I see you standing there With your eyes closed over Thinking something I don't... Don't know Don't know Yeah

I'm turning into you I've changed my design I've killed myself for you A thousand times A thousand times I'm not scared I'm not scared But I'm not there Anyone can see Dogs are barking Do you love me? Does anybody really care? I'm feeling rather sheepish now Yeah
7.
Never seen someone look so alive As you in the bonfire light What a trick to play to make me fall for you You always were the Queen of Hearts You can't die from a broken heart A broken heart But you can't live without her In a park under any sky I dared you to hold me Been risking my life Dancing in the headlights You can't die from a broken heart A broken heart But you can't live without her Without her love The dawn comes and ruins everything Didn't want to send you letters Missed the sound of your voice Want to hold and say I love you Dance among the neon signs that shine Like the fire in your eyes It's love Like the fire in your eyes It's love Like the fire in your eyes It's love

The say you're no good for me (Oh ho! Oh ho! Oh ho!) Skipped school, went to a party (Oh ho! Oh ho! Oh ho!) We were laughing in the neighbour's pool (Oh ho! Oh ho! Oh ho!) Lost my shoe in the water (Oh ho! Oh ho! Oh ho!) You're no good for me (GO! GO! GO!) But that's okay You're no good for me (GO! GO! GO!) I love you anyway Yeah yeah! We dream in silence -Caustic- Our love lasted -Running with- I watch you sleeping -Your love- And whisper love You're no good for me (GO! GO! GO!) But that's okay You're no good for me (GO! GO! GO!) I love you anyway Yeah!
9.
I refract light into A thousand rainbow colours I am tasteless Like a dream You forgot Buzzing inside a lightbulb I fell into falling to My knees for you His friends said He was a shadow Of his former self, and He was a shadow on my wall A glass of water How can you recognise me In a crowded room How can you see Something to relate to In this featureless stone You were always the one Putting me in situations Always the one To laugh when I'd fall
10.
I saved all my heartbeats for you Traced a line through the steps that we took The silver of coincidence In the form and the shape of a book Why did you leave me alone? Why did you let me go? Why did we turn into ghosts And disappear? Take Me away from here To the place where you go to forget Throwing stones into the river Ripples cut through the light of regret Why did you leave me alone? Why did you let me go? Why did we turn into ghosts And disappear? And I search for you in everything I do But you're not there Just a promise fallen at your door A lock of your hair You try and kiss me as I'm walking away But it won't work This love was our last chance Faded
11.
Rebecca's spine goes all the way up Rebecca's spine goes all the way up All the way up, right up to the top Rebecca's spine goes all the way up She knows that I love her She knows how to dance All the lines on the pavement Lead a path to romance She knows that I love her She knows how to dance
12.
We're alone tonight Suffering dearth Glass shadows cover us I'm choking on a diamond Your eye's a glistening jewel I don't see no beauty Here at all Silence is my last chance Or I might end up hurting you What we have What we have, don't let it go A light goes out A city shrouded in darkness Tell me...I'll understand A light goes out A city shrouded in darkness Tell me I love you I'll understand Just talk to me

As the light Turns to green I think of pain I think of pain Of all that Have gone before And go now And go now -Random screaming & silly time signatures-

about

It's been ten years since we released our debut album and it took us about that long to record the darn thing. I thought it would be fun to put together a compilation of demo versions and unreleased bonus tunes. Expect wildly varying performance and audio quality.

I've added some pointless El Dog trivia on most of the songs. Happy listening.
