Track Name: Salt Water Taffy
I remember the day, you were on a blanket on the beach
I remember the day, with a little black tape recorder
and I remember you, the way you used to be

If I showed you where I am
If I told you where I stand
You'd be here with me, where I stand
You'd be here with me, where I am
You'd be with me, Marie

I remember the day, you were in a blue dress holding me
I remember the day, with the salt water taffy meant for you
and I remember you, the way you were with me

If I showed you where I am
If I told you where I stand
You'd be here with me, where I stand
You'd be here with me, where I am
You'd be with me, Marie

I remembered you again
and you remembered the day
I remember the summer is over
and you still remember my face

If I showed you where I am
If I told you where I stand
You'd be here with me, where I stand
You'd be here with me, where I am
You'd be with me, Marie
Track Name: Move On
I've watched the faces change over the years
I've watched the things begin and end
as if they'd never been there at all
Looking back, the years, they seemed so short
But in the light they look so tall

I have believed that everything shall pass
that all this time will soon expend
But all the things I'd learned from you that fall
would give me things I wished could last
but in the light they looked so tall

I don't mind, I don't mind
I don't mind if you never
You don't mind, you don't mind
You don't mind if I ever move on

I've traveled aimlessly through all these years
through all the silhouettes and stratospheres
I don't know where I'm going
I don't know what I'm doing

I don't mind, I don't mind
I don't mind if you never
You don't mind, you don't mind
You don't mind if I ever move on

I've watched the faces change over the years
I've watched the things begin and end
as if they'd never been there at all
Looking back, the years, they seemed so short
But in the light they look so tall
Track Name: Sometimes It Pays
Every time I see my windshield through
I'm reminded of your pretty face
Every time I'm down the avenue
I'm reminded of your pretty face
but I, yes I, am such a disgrace
but sometimes it pays

Every time my car breaks down this year
I will look to you and say it's great
Every time I do lay down my fear
I will look to you a twist of fate
but I, yes I, am such a disgrace
but sometimes it pays

I wonder what it was you said
the last time we spoke inside my head
Why do you do this to me, baby
You make me crazy

Every time I'm at the chain of stores
I'm reminded of your precious face
Every time I'm washed upon the shore
I'm reminded of your gorgeous face
but I, yes I,
but I, yes I,
but I, yes I, am such a disgrace
but sometimes it pays
Track Name: Your Heritage
Everyone I knows' a secret
Kept underneath the Brooklyn bridge
and all the roads are paved with white wine
Something about your heritage

I'm not sure how to ignore you
Everything is immanent
I don't know just what you're thinking
I just know it's innocent

I know you, yes
I know you
I wish it weren't true
I can't stay much longer
I know I'll make do

You know, I've heard that life's outrageous
Just because it has to be
I know just what makes you angry
Someone said catastrophe

I know you, yes
I know you
I wish it weren't true
I can't stay much longer
I know I'll make do

I live on a smoldering boulder on the west side of the sea
I can't move away until you're still in love with me
The storm's grown colder and colder, I'm lost in the debris
I won't move away until you're still in love with me

I know you, yes
I know you
I wish it weren't true
I know you, yes
I know you
I wish it weren't you
I can't stay much longer
I know I'll make do
Track Name: My Word
I know you were named after a town just north of Boston
Or a section of New York where there are piers
And I really want to know if I have a chance while I am here

And I know that I can't pretend I've talked to you and made amends
Because that would just be so absurd
I wouldn't mind seeing you, you have my word

I know that it shall never be
It's become all too apparent to me
And I don't need to justify my life by having you by my side

And I know that I can't pretend I've talked to you and made amends
Because that would just be so absurd
I wouldn't mind seeing you, you have my word

I know that it shall never be
It's become all too apparent to me
And I don't need to justify my life by having you by my side
