Track Name: Venice, CA
we got high on venice beach on a sunny july afternoon and the freaks said what you doing here son
and i said well i dont know but id like to find out before i go but i never did
then we took a car downtown stopped for a drink in santa monica my head was spinning
and your mate tried to save a girl from her boyfriends arms we just laughed about it oh we just laughed about it

so pour me another gin grab me another beer
how could i leave here without you my dear
oh pour me another gin and grab me another beer
why would i leave here without you

then our phone rang twice but we didnt pick it up we could have called back later jumped a cab to melrose and la brea
where some old man died for a dollar or two his life up for sale and typewriter too he used to be in the movies
so i bought his stuff and i thought to myself what is life in dollars or pounds when it all burns anyway
and even with the blunt you lit the rum and coke that nearly made me sick nothings ever gonna change that

so pour me another gin grab me another beer
how could i leave here without you my dear
oh pour me another gin and grab me another beer
why would i leave here without you

back to back in hollywood with my back against the wall dive bars dancing and disaronno
she wanted me to go home with her i didnt want to go home at all cos then id have to think about it
i didnt want to have to think about it didnt want to have to think about it didnt want to have to think about didnt want to think about it
i dont want to have think about it dont want to have to think about it dont want to have to think about it dont want to have to think

so pour me another gin grab me another beer
how could i leave here without you my dear
oh pour me another gin and grab me another beer
why would i leave here without you
why would i leave here without you

and when the night was through there was nothing else left to do so i slept on a floor in westwood
Track Name: 1.9.9.0.
back in the nineties i was a kid and i didnt even know your name
there with my father you were a distant echo to be heard one day
but i hear you now and i hear you so damn well
you hid from my vision the burden you bring me now im all on my own

i split the country to get away but it didnt seem to do no good
back in my home and out on the road you fit me like a drivers glove
i had dreams of a better man i had dreams of leaving you
but you were in london you were in paris and now youre in la too

i cant stay i cant take it much longer i yearn for the boy that i once was

if you were born in nineteen ninety you would feel the way i do
if you were born in nineteen ninety youd be lost like i am too

all of your old friends traded you off for stocks and apartment homes
a house in the country girlfriend to marry you only brought them down
but i know youre not like that and i know youll do me well
yet whenever i come back give you one more chance you only bring me hell

i cant stay i cant take it much longer i yearn for the boy that i once was

if you were born in nineteen ninety you would feel the way i do
if you were born in nineteen ninety youd be lost like i am too

one nine nine oh one nine nine oh

back in the nineties i was a kid and i didnt even know your name
Track Name: Maybe When We Get Back Home
maybe when we get back home
i will see where i went wrong
when i look for peace of mind
im anxious and immortalised
Track Name: Jep Shuffle
my long lost friend where did you go?
i thought i saw your face in the glass of my window
but my heart aches it needs to know
will i ever be back again?

i know jep gambardella hes the one who taught me to jep shuffle
i know jep gambardella hes the one who taught me to jep shuffle

i know jep gambardella cut and clean and with the peacock feather
gliding on the riverbanks with your reflection holding you together
soul searching on summer solstice my sole certainty is this
i have lived and i have loved and i will die

my long lost friend where did you go?
i thought i saw your face in the glass of my window
but my heart aches it needs to know
will i ever be back again?

i know jep gambardella hes the one who taught me to jep shuffle
i know jep gambardella hes the one who taught me to jep shuffle

landlocked lovers in the moonlight there was a cold and slight embrace
shuffling around the back streets of this roman town
mother mary guide me home take me in your arms cried jep
then party on the rooftops in adulation

my long lost friend where did you go?
i thought i saw your face in the glass of my window
but my heart aches it needs to know
will i ever be back again?

back back back back again
back back back back again
everybody jep shuffle

i know jep gambardella hes the one who taught me to jep shuffle
i know jep gambardella hes the one who taught me
