Track Name: Long Blue Line
Funny how a photograph
Can lift you up
Find your heart behind the barricades
Hear the song inside your laugh
(Of loss and love)
Here we are and once again I’m joining the parade
 
It’s a long blue line
Like an ocean tide
It’s the love that no one ever knows
No one ever knows
It’s a long blue line
And it moves through time
Too late and there it goes
 
Holding on to stupid things
(So meaningless)
Feeling like a tourist in the rain
Wisdom that the future brings
(East to west)
Passengers aboard a paper plane
 
It’s a long blue line
Like an ocean tide
It’s the love that no one ever knows
No one ever knows
It’s a long blue line
And it moves through time
Too late and there it goes
 
Watch the horizon
The sun goes down
Leaving your footprints
Underground
 
It’s a long blue line
Like an ocean tide
It’s the love that no one ever knows
No one ever knows
It’s a long blue line
And it moves through time
Too late and there it goes
Track Name: Peter Lorre
He’s the shape on the wall in the alley
He’s a runner, a shill and a lackey
He’s a snitch, he’s a diplomat
A Cairo crasher, a feral cat
 
On the stairs looking over his shoulder
On the lam from American soldiers
Don’t be fooled by the courtly bow
He’s gonna sell you out somehow
 
What’s the story, Peter Lorre
What’s the news, urban blues
What’s the story, Peter Lorre
Hide your clues in a dead man's shoes
 
He’s the charming rake at the party
He’s the cowardly fool on safari
With a calm half-lidded look
Pages ripped from an open book

In a phone booth under a hard rain
In a cell rolling dice with the inmates
And when you pass on the midnight track
Don't look back, don't look back

What’s the story, Peter Lorre
What’s the news, urban blues
What’s the story, Peter Lorre
Hide your clues in a dead man's shoes
Track Name: Where Do We Go From Here?
You make me dizzy like a tilt-a-whirl
You keep me hanging in the balance
I'm sure that gravity was born a girl
Who hasn't done a little damage

But if love won't see us through
Where do we go from here?
If love won't see us through
Where do we go from here?

The past is crawling up the basement drain
And soon it's swimming in the current
You put your money down and say your name
Is my name
That's how the world keeps turning

But if love won't see us through
Where do we go from here?
If love won't see us through
Where do we go from here?

When the compass spins
There it is again
The life you've always dreamed of
We are the sum of our experience
And experience is a river
Flowing far, far away

If love won't see us through
Where do we go from here
(Love is all we have)
If love won't see us through
Where do we go from here
Track Name: Cold Comfort
If at first I felt a little change
Three inches on the weather vane
I decided not to worry
But it didn’t go so well
And it’s funny what you tell yourself
 
It’s a rain check it’s a runaround
It’s the hand I used to hold
Waving at me through a windshield
Nothing here but cold cold comfort
 
And you tell me that you still feel love
But you only feel it half as much
Now I’m staring at a stranger
I can hardly recognize
Never seen such unfamiliar eyes
 
It’s a tear drop it’s a tidal wave
It’s the total disbelief
That you’d do me like you’re doing me
Baby please don’t leave
It’s a rain check it’s a runaround
It’s the hand I used to hold
Waving at me through a windshield
Nothing there but cold cold comfort
 
I know a thing or two
About lying
I know a thing or two
About crying
 
It’s a tear drop it’s a tidal wave
It’s the total disbelief
That you’d do me like you’re doing me
Baby please don’t leave
It’s a rain check it’s a runaround
It’s the hand I used to hold
Waving at me through a windshield
Nothing here but cold cold comfort
