I want to rendezvous in the moonlight On the pier, in the canyon or the Angel's Flight The sweet smell of love in the air's got me in a daze The world disappears, I'm locked in your gaze But loneliness has a way of closing my eyes The most I can hope for is just to survive Your silence is all I can hear in the midst of the crowd Yet this passion just leaves me to sing out loud Of how you fill me full of desires And how my heart beats blood and fire To feel your body here is all that I need The hot summer sun, forbidden dreams

Isabelle A 04:14
The night we met was no disaster Unlike everything that happened after Love's not meant to be Emotional pornography And sometimes honesty Is the worst policy Isabelle A I don't believe in astrology Isabelle A But you don't believe in me And Honey, that's no way to be A hug, a kiss, the sound of laughter A punch, a kick, a Kung-Fu master You hear With your eyes So I can see why You're deaf to my cries Isabelle A I don't believe in astrology Isabelle A Or Soviet conspiracies Isabelle A Or supernatural sexuality Isabelle A But you don't believe in me And Honey, that's no way to be You've got it all but a sense of shame But your sting is so sweet I just can't complain Why do these girls all dress the same? Isabelle A., there's no one to blame So I call out your name Isabelle A I don't believe in astrology Isabelle A Or liberations overseas Isabelle A Or rewards for mediocrity Isabelle A But you don’t believe in me

My files are filed but my cache is cashed I've got a sneaking suspicion that this system's gonna crash I just need to Relax But I don't want to Relax I can't If this is the future, I'd really really like to go back I gave it all up for just a couple of clicks But now I'm starting to think that it was some kind of trick I just need to Relax But I don't want to Relax I can't In the end it's nothing that a couple of bucks won't fix If I searched for you What would I find? A quote/unquote artist with too much free time And I could be cruel Or I could be kind And we could fall in love again In your mind We’re all alone, we’re all alone tonight We’re all alone, we’re all alone tonight We’re all alone and it’s all right You can't undo What you did to me My heart's more complex Than your plastic PC If you want to see me Just go to sleep And we could fall in love again In your dreams I never imagined that our love would fade Or that we'd hear it all before a single note played And I just need to Relax But I don't want to Relax It's too late It used to be if you sold out, at least you got paid

Fanfaronnade 05:18
Oh, an appeal to what's right The dimwit's demise but the dandy's delight Should never be trite Or at all impolite Oh, it's not a question of touch It's a question of feeling and such Did I say too much? Fifty French, fifty Dutch Fanfaronnade Oh, she seemed odd for a fan Two parts coquette, one part tin can And before she began I turned and ran Oh, there's just one guarantee People are what they pretend not to be Some monkeys do And some monkeys see Fanfaronnade I try hard to convey Every emotion in every way Alas, much to my dismay It's worse than bad, it's just OK And there's nothing left to say But I'll say it anyway Fanfaronnade Oh, it's a struggle I suppose This last bastion of purple prose Which nobody knows But that's just how it goes. Oh, with a wink and a nod A last cigarette and a firing squad A nation applauds Fanfaronnade I try hard to convey Every emotion in every way Alas, much to my dismay It's worse than bad, it's just OK And there's left nothing to say But I'll say it anyway Fanfaronnade
