Track Name: Bella Corrina
My Corrina, she's got it badly
she is so crazy about her love
she lets me kiss her, under her jaw bone
she's got no problem about her love

It's just a calling, I feel her falling for me
what are we gonna do?

my Corrina, she's got it badly
she is so crazy about her love
she thinks she's subtle, she say's who's that girl?
I try to console her, "Corrina, you are my love."

it's just a calling, I feel her falling for me
And in the morning, she says, "it's morning, darling...
What are we gonna do?"

Corrina! She laughs, she laughs.
She talks between her teeth.
She clings to my shirt. She knows what she needs

Bella Corrina! Bella Corinna! Bella Corrina!
Bella Corrina! Bella Corrina! Bella Corrina!
Smile at me love! Smile at me love!

Bella Corrina! Bella Corinna! Bella Corrina!
Bella Corrina! Bella Corrina! Bella Corrina!
Smile at me love! Smile at me love!

My Corrina, she's got it badly
she is so crazy about her love
she lets me kiss her, under her jaw bone
she's got no problem about her love

It's just a calling, I feel her falling for me
what are we gonna do?
Track Name: Forgiveness
I asked her kindly, will you forgive me?
I asked her kindly.

Pastor please, will you do me a little favor
I'm such a fool. I didn't know I could be so cruel
So will you tell her for me, tell her for me?

I am a brute, I'm uncouth, I'm a ruffian
I'll end up a skeleton if I don't change my ways.

I asked her kindly, will you forgive me?
I asked her kindly.

You used to have eyes for me
now you have only dirty stares for me
but is it a dichotomy: good, bad, am I only one?
at two in the morning, you used to grab my arm
say, "what are you doing?" keep me up
I'm weary all day long.
Track Name: I was your Man
I was your man. You were my girl.
We shared a love, all of our own
We had many days, very light.
When I was your man. Now you're gone.

My darling, I hate that I saw you cry
You run away without saying goodbye
Now I walk the streets all very alone
when I was your man, now you're gone.

I was your man. You were my girl.
We shared a love, all of our own
We had many days, very light.
When I was your man. Now you're gone.

My sugar, I hate that I made you yell
You stomp your feet, it shakes the ground
and I'm a jaded soul, barreling around.
I was your man, now you're gone.
Track Name: What are Words?
What are words, what are words?
I hear the pitter-patter of the rain
I'm dousing myself in the sound

Such a mood, such a mood
that words can bring
I hear the wind hustling by

and in the most rosy light
you saw me for the first time
you were so slight, you were so slight
your words were only kind

what are words, they are just air
like the wind is just air
so are words, though it's hard to believe

when they sting, when they slice
like the breaking of a vase
words they seem more than just air

when the most rosy light turned off
your words were not as soft
how can puffs of air from your mouth
make me feel so without?

I sit at the window's edge
listening to the pitter-patter of the rain...

(improvised lyrics)
