Track Name: Expectations
It's true you can't be faulted
'cuz my expectations are high
You never asked to be exalted,
to be idealised

So now I'm left to harbor
some more fictitious feelings,
some companions to the horror
I'm just barely concealing

And I wouldn't go backwards,
but I wouldn't stay here
with only melodies and words
to counter the fear

Now the backyard sprinklers
are starting to reappear
They rise like peacock feathers
on a showgirl's rear

A woman's smile revives me
Her lips warms me like wine
or like electricity
when the two are combined

And I wouldn't go backwards,
but I wouldn't stay here
with only melodies and words
to counter the fear
Track Name: The Letdown
I know you're gonna leave me hanging
like a wrecking ball from a crane,
cold, black, and dangling
from that long, silver chain

I know you're gonna let me down
from the peak of the mountaintop
to the steep and rocky ground
That's such a deadly drop

You're gonna leave me hanging
You're gonna let me down

You're gonna leave me hanging
You're gonna let me down
You're gonna leave me hanging
You're gonna let me down

I know you're gonna leave me hanging
like a watch in a hypnotist's hands,
gold, bright, and dangling
until I'm in a trance

I know you're gonna let me down
from a skyscraper so tall
to the concrete ground
That's such a deadly fall

You're gonna leave me hanging
You're gonna let me down

You're gonna leave me hanging
You're gonna let me down
You're gonna leave me hanging
You're gonna let me down
