delicious pastries are a pop outfit unencumbered by the fleeting dalliances of the new rock vogue. forged in the fire of friendship and galvanized by a deep love of the pop idiom, they create melodic vignettes as familiar as they are odd. whimsical and literate; equal parts yesterday and today. ... more

Track Name: safe & sound
from the not so distant past
I hear her calling me.
please take this reverb off her voice
she sounds so echoey.

things will be better when you're older
it's not as though you've lost your soldier
and I said a thousand times
I'm not going off to war

you're safe and sound now.
you buried all your feelings
in the ground now.
and everybody knows
that this love is gonna grow now, darling,
it takes some time,
I'm gonna make her mine,
and i will do all those things
that I would have done unto me.

and everybody knows
that this love is gonna grow now, darling,
it takes some time,
I'm gonna make her mine,
and I will do all those things
that I would have done unto me.
Track Name: dad
if I said your name backwards
would it sound the same forwards?
if I said you name forwards
would it sound the same backwards?
and to switch the matter completely:
you knew my grandfather, you know my mother.

would what I look like
with some wings and a halo?
would I feel different?
would the folds on my robes glow?
and to switch the matter completely:
you never gave us stones, we only ate bread.

you were a good dad.
we were all well-fed.
and you were a good dad.
we were all

and to switch the matter completely:
you'd have to eat the veins and arteries too

and you were a good dad.
we were all well-fed.
you were a good dad.
we were all well-fed.
Track Name: international tanlines
I'm just sitting here and waiting in my lonely room.
trying to find a reason to come and visit soon.
and I finally found a reason to go.
and I feel like only Jesus could know.

gonna get there soon
gonna get there soon

I don't believe you when you say
that you just can't live without it.
no one's listening anyway
and there's sufficient reason to doubt it.

you done did it now
you done did it now
me and your mom are so proud

how much could one town really weigh?
you know I never thought about it.
and I'd do anything to make you stay,
I would scream and shout about it.

you done did it now
you done did it now
me and your mom are so proud

international tanlines
they're international
Track Name: something else!
you used to be someone
but now you're something else
you use the camera as a mirror for yourself

such a newbie
look what you're doin' to me
can't believe you're someone I showed my home movies
prima donna
you do what you wanna
still I'm gonna keep on puttin' kisses on ya

so below me
you're callin' me a phoney
this ceremony's just a fine excuse to stone me
how cinematic!
just creating static.
your emphatic audience ain't automatic
Track Name: metaphors
you steep your tea in metaphors
and you spill the mug that stains my floors
and I'm scrubbing hard
I look up to see
that you've closed the door on you and me

I'm marrying halls
the shorts and the talls
the boughs that I'm taking after shows where no one goes

don't let the air-condition fool you
even if I don't say a thing
you see me here
you know I'm suffering

ba ba ba ba ba
and we both pretend
that the ship's not going down
but it is
Track Name: birthday fever
I'm bringing cakes.
I heard him singing mistakes.
everybody's coming 'cos it's totally snakes!

I've got birthday fever -
a fever to believe her.
we were lighting the candles -
the candles on the mantles.
while we stared at your portrait -
your portrait - couldn't torch it.

I was passing out flowers -
those flowers last for hours.
shaun - he gave us some soul hits -
some soul hits!
to keep us warm.
cos' I was covered in icing -
that icing was a snowstorm.

I'm all a mess.
should we check the address?
I got a funny feeling I'm trying to get off my chest



what do you do now the tables have turned?
who are you now, and what have you learned?
you've learned to forgive again
yeah, you've learned to forgive again

I still believe that you've sold yourself short.
for a moment's reprieve, I'd open the door
and I'd let you back in again
yeah, I'd let you back in again

and I still think
we can win again if we begin again

who do you have now to save you from sleep?
when you wake in the morning
there's someplace that you'd rather be.
and it feels like a sin again
yeah, it feels like a sin again

what do I do now my life just isn't as sweet?
I paint the town red now
but something still feels incomplete.
and you're getting thin again
yeah, you're getting thin again

and I still think
we can win again if we begin again
Track Name: marian
hey, marian
if I never see you again
it would break this heart
but that never stopped you before

hey, marian
let me tell you again
I wanna be your man
but that never stopped you before

hey, marian
you know I just can't stand
the way you kissed my hand
before you turned to walk out the door

i'm not wasting my time
still in love with a girl like you.
think you made it pretty clear
that you're no open book
and I don't care

can't be wasting my time
I've waited my whole life for a girl like you.
think you made it pretty clear
that you're no open book.
you know I need you

if you let me I would take a look

I'd dog-ear a couple of your pages

can't be wasting my time
still in love with a girl like you.
think you made it pretty clear
that you're no open book
and I don't care

I'm not wasting my time
I'm head-over-heels for a girl like you.
think you made it pretty clear
that you're no open book.
you know I love you

if you let me I would take a look

I'd dog-ear a couple of your pages
please let me dog-ear a couple of your pages
I wanna dog-ear a couple of your pages
