3rd Measurement In C

Album: Translating the Name EP (2003)
  • "3rd Measurement In C"
    Taking back, overdone
    Free and safely
    Souvenirs, out of style
    Right in front and right on
    do it so, I'll be mad, you'll be gone

    And I'm sad that you'll be gold upon
    gold in my veins
    tango with daddy and separate only
    smile my only rights of passage

    Only you, mark my words
    upon the stage you strike off
    to get engaged in California

    And I'm sad that you'll be gold upon
    gold in my veins
    tango with daddy and separate only
    smile my only rights of passage

    Don't say that I'm the one you want to lose
    Don't say that I'm the one you want to lose
    I want to know
    Don't say that I'm the one you want to lose
    Don't say that I'm the one you want to lose
    Don't say that I'm the one you want to lose
    Don't say that I'm the one you want to lose
