Track Name: One Big Bean
one big bean
(danylo)


i like you
and maybe i shouldnt
i should quit
but i probably wont
and maybe you see
where this is all going
and maybe you stop me
and maybe you wont


time goes by so fast
when you finally hope something will last
you got one more door
to close behind you a little harder
than you closed it before
i got one big bean
bigger than anything ive ever seen


the sun will set with recalcitrant splendor
and not rise again till the rainiest day
and we'll stand on the beaches
and curse at the sky
till the waters rise up
till we're all swept away


time goes by so fast
when you finally hope something will last
you got one more door
to close behind you a little harder
than you closed it before
i got one big bean
bigger than anything ive ever seen


i like you
and maybe i shouldnt
i should quit
but i probably wont
and maybe you see
where this is all going
and maybe you follow me
and maybe you wont


time goes by so fast
when you finally hope something will last
you got one more door
to close behind you a little harder
than you closed it before
i got one big bean
bigger than anything ive ever seen
Track Name: Comfortable
comfortable
(danylo)



lets you and i go out
with evening spread against the sky
through certain half deserted streets
we'll be charming and discreet
just you and i
let us go and make our visits
and waste away the afternoon
hunt and search for buried treasure,
laugh or measure out our lives in coffee spoons

and do i dare now
disturb the universe
and take a minute to rehearse
decisions and revisions that a minute can reverse
and do i hold back
just ride it out, i dont know what to do
its all so new
i think im getting comfortable with youthe yellow fog and smoke
rubs against the windows panes
and we can smoke and drink a beer while we
adhere to rules for standing in the drains
i have known your eyes already
im familiar to this room
and with the way im feeling now
i kinda wish you'd tell me how
should i presume



and do i dare now
disturb the universe
and take a minute to rehearse
decisions and revisions that a minute can reverse
and do i hold back
just ride it out, i dont know what to do
its all so new
i think im getting comfortable with you


but i am not a prince
nor was i meant to be
but i hear the mermaids singing
and this time
they sing for me


in the corner of the evening
do we make a sudden leap
watch the women come and go
and talk of Michelangelo till we're asleep
do we linger in the doorway
do we take the curtain down
do we give into the notion
that in this ecstatic ocean
we should drown



and do i dare now
disturb the universe
and take a minute to rehearse
decisions and revisions that a minute can reverse
and do i hold back
just ride it out, i dont know what to do
its all so new
i think im getting comfortable with you
Track Name: Rubaiyat

(danylo)


i caught my eyes sink into you
it's true. what else would you have them do..
reintroduce myself to you
haiku...how can you walk in those shoes


sipping on my scotch for the dear departed
summer kind of lover never quite got started
got 21 days to erase my brain
or it wont ever be the same


i found a good thing
i found a good thing when i found you


i found a good thing
i found a good thing when i found you


i recognize your silhouette, you bet
swaying on the parapet
walking down the street, smoking camel lights
coughing like a rank amature
biding my time in the hole until
last saturday half off goodwill
45, love, score, game, match, set
dodge the fist of lingering regret


i found a good thing
i found a good thing when i found you


i found a good thing
i found a good thing when i found you


i caught my eyes sink into you
it's true. what else would you have them do..
we'll reconvene ourselves at 10...again..do whatever happens then
big ideas: dont get any
any - is the key word - any
on a burnt ride baby with a P-O-G
somewhere beyond the sea


i found a good thing
i found a good thing when i found you


i found a good thing
i found a good thing when i found you

dead men tell no tales
they tell no tales
dead men tell no tales

ill tell you what really is inside


or you can blame it all on me
and you can blame it all on me
and you can blame it all on me


and who do you point to when im gone
and who do you point to
when im gone

(danylo)


i know this guy
knew this guy
he was cool
but now hes gone
disappeared
cause some girl's got his sack


and our friends shake their heads
cause hes pretty much dead
and thats' really something you should shake your head at


dont be shady
dont ditch your friends for a girl
dont drop out of school to work at ponderosa
dont write code
dont drink too much robotussin
dont block out the sun
like a norway maple


if i had a hammer
lord, id build the biggest clubhouse
as big as any man has ever seen
and if i had a million dollars
id pay someone else to build my clubhouse
id watch cable
smoke a p-funk
throw the i-ching


but it seems as of late
everybodys gotta skate
and the grass is always greener
when you piss in someone elses yard and


dont be shady
dont ditch your friends for a girl
dont drop out of school to work at giant eagle
dont write code
dont drink too much robotussin
dont block out the sun
like a norway maple


so everybody in the catalina
cause we're driving out to gary
(big deals cookin' out in gary
we dont gotta work no more)
and if we get past this audition
then we'll all be goin' fishin'
and i wish you could've been more here


dont be shady
dont ditch your friends for a girl
dont drop out of school to work at eat n park
dont write code
dont drink too much robotussin
dont block out the sun
like a norway maple

youre so nice you talk to everybody just like you talk to me
youre so good youre too good to be any good maybe to me

somethings wrong, i cant put my finger on it...
somethings wrong, i cant put my finger on it...


youre sublime, youre sly but accountable
randomly indifferent to the piper's tune
wouldn't trade all the colors of the crayon box
for the absolute value of the moon


somethings wrong, i cant put my finger on it...
somethings wrong, i cant put my finger on it...


turn the light on, ill close the window
close the window, can't keep it open
turn the light on, ill close the window
close the window, can't keep it open


youre so nice you talk to everybody just like you talk to me
and youre so good you might be too good to be any good to me


somethings wrong, i cant put my finger on it...
somethings wrong, i cant put my finger on it...


turn the light on, ill close the window
close the window, can't keep it open
turn the light on, ill close the window
close the window, can't keep it open
Track Name: Bada Bing
bada bing
(danylo)


i dunno whats happening to me (yeah you see)
all that i can think about is her (only she)
yeah, today i'd say isnt quite what i'd envisioned
yeah, it don't add up, got me doing long division
when it feels like this, i guess, yeah, i'm in love


i cant seem to get her off my mind (and i've tried)
well, maybe. no, not really, no i dont (yeah, i lied)
some may say that i'm acting kinda shady
but you drop what you need for a barenaked lady
when it feels like this, i guess, yeah, i'm in love


i like to stare into her eyes, make superspy passes
sit and sip champagne out of styrofoam glasses
and i feel so young, feel so carefree
she's everything i need in a 34-C
and she
likes me


(least i hope so)


i dont see my old friends much anymore (no i dont)
i dont hang around much anymore (and i wont)
they can't compare with the current competition
guess i sank point blank to a different proposition
when it feels like this, i guess, yeah, i'm in love
Track Name: Flicker & Fade
flicker & fade
(danylo)


i think about you sometimes
cause there's nothing else to think about
i think about you sometimes
all the moments that we've shared
analyzing every
conversation in my mind
looking for some sign
to prove you cared


but I've been here before
i know we could be something more
but all my thoughts of you will flicker and fade away
all my thoughts of you will flicker and fade


i think about you sometimes
like an empty pack of cigarettes
like a cold shower, like a nail without a screw
fold you in a box of half-ass rhymes and chainsaw letters
cause you know someday i�ll be more than just a causality of you


and i've been here before
i know we could be something more
but all my thoughts of you will flicker and fade away
all my thoughts of you will flicker and fade


but what give you the right
to make me lose sleep over you tonight
what gives you the right to make me care


i think about you sometimes
cause there's nothing else to think about
so i stay and play my part
in your little game of acts and scenes
i guess i'll think about you
till the next girl comes along
and there's no room in my head
for you and all your could-have-beens


cause i've been here before
i know we could be something more
but all my thoughts of you will flicker and fade away
all my thoughts of you will flicker and fade
flicker and fade away
flicker and fade
flicker and fade away
Track Name: Last Chance
last chance
(danylo)


tell me puzzlemaker just where do these pieces fit
doesnt look just like the box but maybe this one's it
shes not a corner or an edge or from the scenery
but no one fits the way she fits when she lies next to me


she might be the last chance
might be the last chance
she might be the last chance at love
last chance at love i got


drink one down for courage
one to say you had one more
wake up empty handed face down on the kitchen floor
tired ruminations of the things that went unsaid
kiss you like a hologram and hide under the bed
Track Name: Beautiful
beautiful
(danylo)


so hey, imagine theres before us
groves of trees in black fedoras
could you just adore us and this movie we're in
or cut us out, deleted scenes
that never see the bigger screens
get left for the dvds if they make it at all
if they make it at all


(guess you cant get what you want if you dont call)


but all i want is to be happy
thats all id ever hope for you
and if i havent said it
half as much as i had meant it
to me you'll always


be beautiful
like a nebula
like a sonogram
like a coloring book
and my fortune cookie, four leaf clover
both tell me that starting over
wont be easy
but the best things usually arent
yeah, they're usually not


(guess you cant miss what you dont know that you got)


and i want is to be happy
thats all id ever hope to be
and if i havent said it
half as much as i have meant it
you're always beautiful to me


and i cant hold you like i did before
and i dont know why
but i can hold you like i did before
and i dont know why


and i want is to be happy
thats all id ever hope to be
and if i havent said it
half as much as i have meant it
you're always beautiful to me


you're always beautiful to me
you're always beautiful to me
you're always beautiful to me
Track Name: Old Crow
old crow
(danylo-balik)


i was walking just the other day
i saw someone that looked like you
and so i waved
it wasnt
but she waved back anyways
and i was thinkin of the things you said
those mornings we would lie in bed
your pretty head
was sometimes all that kept me dreamin


aw, do you remember
when we used to take it slow
we had september
but if you gotta leave
and if you gotta go
leave the bottle of old crow


i was talking just the other day
my old friend said "youre growing up"
i said "i'll try to hide it better"
she said "bet you will"
and i was thinking
how bad could it be
this whole concept of you and me
i guess we'll see
just whats real and just whats dreaming


aw, do you remember
how we used to make it slow
we had september
but if you gotta leave
and if you gotta go
leave the bottle of old crow
