Track Name: The Knife (Slower, Lower)
The coffee I drink is strong
The books that I read are well recommended
I thought that I'd write a new song
The reasons for which were not comprehended
So put the knife back on the shelf
I'm hard enough on myself
And I don't need you
Trying to kill me too
Change my socks most every dawn
And I keep my trousers impeccably suspended
And I'm alright with being wrong
But how do you punish one so well intended
So stick your blade in someone else
I'm hard enough on myself
And I don't need you
Trying to kill me too

Leave my body out of this
You know I want to go
Curse me and then take off your dress
I know just how you throw down
Take it slow, down ...

I was born a harmony singer
Definitely not a band leader
I was born just to die
With a disposition a bit too shy
I was born into the world
With a mild affliction for French girls
I don't know why I treat me so
I'll love her till she lays me low
And I was born to make you sound good
I was born to make your sound understood
Track Name: My Shoes (Lilies EP)
Well my lady told me something
Said the way you tie your shoes
Tells me all you know about loving
And that's you tie 'em looser than you should
Well my lady told me something
Said the way you make your bed
Tells me all you know about leaving
And that's you lay your shoes under you head

And I said my shoes might talk to you
They might tell what I've been through
And though my shoes are split to the middle
They make a mighty fine pillow

Well my lady told me something
Said the way you eat your food
Tells me all you know about loving
And that's you fuss much more when it's good
And my lady told me something else
Said you can't go on run off by yourself
You'll get old and you'll grow cold and your hand no one might hold
But, lover, lace 'em as you please

And I said my shoes might talk to you
They may tell what I've been through
And thought my shoes are worn out and brittle
They make a mighty fine pillow

Well my lady told me something
Said the way you sing your song
Tells me all you know about loving
And that's you flip it o'er just before you think it's done
