MADELINE
unreleased

madeline's approaching daylight now
madeline is madly in love with a man
she knows from yesterday
you can't say you love madeline

and i hear you heard her on your shortwave
and i hear that she is hopelessly
falling in love with you again
but you can't say that to madeline

so her pleasure comes in silence
and her pain just goes in silence
madeline has left
she's dancing around you
every which way she can
you won't give it up for your sweet madeline

you thought my eyes were hers
when i looked at you
you thought my love was hers
and i was almost true
you never loved me like i loved you

so make the call
you always wanted to
so madeline knows just who she is
who you think i ought to be
just say you've taken me for madeline

you thought my eyes were hers
when i looked at you
you thought my love was hers
and i was almost true
you never loved me like i loved you


SERENDIPITIES
unreleased; appeared as college project music video

smiling under my skin
i don't know how i got here
maybe i turned on the light
and stopped being afraid
i might be right

i don't need pills to answer
what is going on
i sleep to die a little
and i dream to have my fun

i cry to make a point
that i am bleeding
i stay up late to watch me
drift away

it's raining now in ireland
that's where i left my soul
she comes back at night to join me
it's my she-vampire role

i cry to make a point
that i am bleeding
i stay up late to watch me
drift away
and i wait before the sun comes up
to be a shadow
and then i melt back into day

hi diddle-i
hi diddle-you
i gave my porridge up
for a bit of lamb stew
and get any closer
you're blocking my view
the nightmare is over
and i am through

i don't need pills to answer
what is going on
i sleep to die a little
and i dream to have my fun

hi diddle-i
and hi diddle-you
the nightmare is over
and i am through

SCORPIO
unreleased

is she coming out
just to be the fall
is she taking hits
with her back up against the wall

she says in each of her hands
is a light that she'll never hold
palms up, dressed to kill
says she'd rather die young than grow old

but one day
she will tell herself
she has worlds of things to say
but 'til then she's walking invisible
and she has plans to stay that way

and if she starves her waist
will she enter into what she calls
a very empty place
where she can learn to be nothing at all

and one day
she will tell herself
she has these worlds of things to say
but 'til then she's walking invisible
and she has plans to stay that way

is she wrestling her stars
to make a chart of where to go
will she fight it
'til the sky bleeds Scorpio

dressed up in her finest hour
making sure the world knows she still breathes
she looks out to the end
and blames the light for what she sees

but one day
she will tell herself
she has these worlds of things to say
but 'til then she's walking invisible
and she has plans to stay that way
