Friends 03:30
I have friends I love so dearly They are constantly near me In my heart In my heart In my heart In my heart I hate being left alone But I like to be alone In my head In my head In my head In my head I watch everyone around me Makes me feel a bit less crazy In the end In the end In the end In the end

Snow Day 02:34
It’s cold outside And I don’t wanna go to work today So can’t I hide Beneath the covers sleep the day away It won’t be long ‘Till the snow has covered up the windows Of my car And I don’t feel like diggin’ out again today So come in here And we can sleep a little longer baby I’ll call Curt And later you can give a call to Nancy Tell them that We’re just stuck inside a pile of snow Sorry but I just couldn’t get my car to go today Baby won’t you play hooky with me We can sit around Drink peppermint tea Go outside and build a snowman Throw a snowball at the mailman Baby that sounds perfect to me We’ll come inside Take our boots and hats and gloves and coats off Curl up by The fireplace and watch a movie Something that We have seen too many times already So we can doze off And dream of days just like the one today Baby won’t you play hooky with me We can sit around Drink peppermint tea Go outside and build a snowman Throw some snowballs at the mailman Baby that sounds perfect to me

I watch you on the dance floor You’re touching all the girls I have to leave the dance floor When you’re touching all the girls A sweaty arm rubs up against me That’s when I have to leave My fun is spoiled as I retreat Because you’re such a little sleaze Would you stop If you only knew That the whole Town was on to you I hear you talking to her You said the same thing to me The last time you had me cornered To talk about the music scene You sound just like a cartoon teacher Every time you ramble on Especially when the band is playing One of my all time favorite songs Would you stop If you only knew That the whole Town was on to you I see you coming towards me Out of the corner of my eye Your face is flashing in the strobe light There is no place for me to hide Another girl gets on the dance floor And you’re not sure which way to glance So you fall down on the dance floor In a sea of “boots and pants” Would you stop If you only knew That the whole Town was on to you

Bored 02:54
I am bored I am looking for Something to Occupy my time Is that something you can do? To help me Help me figure out What to do Help me Help me figure out What to do I could go To the store But it wouldn’t really Matter much Cause it’s not Like I’ve got the money To buy things Pretty things That I don’t even need To buy things Pretty things that I don’t even need. I could read A book But it would just make me Fall asleep anyway Cause that’s what I do When I’m reading Sleeping isn’t all that far behind When I’m reading Sleeping isn’t all that far behind I am bored I am looking for Something to Occupy my time Is that something you can do?

Movie Star 02:47
Thought I saw you in a Foreign film You just walked across the Movie screen And I almost screamed In the theater And I almost screamed In the theater It’s been years since I have Seen your face Still I recognize it Anyway And I hope that you are Doing well And I hope that you are Doing well

I Can't Wait 03:34
There’s a method to my madness If you find it let me know And I’m feeling all this sadness I just couldn’t let it go I can’t wait to see you there I can’t wait to see you there It’s always such a nice place to be With you There’s a madness to my method Everything I say is wrong And I’m feeling so distracted So I won’t be staying long I can’t wait to see you there I can’t wait to see you there It’s always such a nice place to be With you If I could just get over it If I were comfortable in my skin I’d walk into the room And I’d be fine I was nervous to begin with But I think that it my pass Still I’m feeling kind of awkward So I think I’m gonna leave I can’t wait to see you there I can’t wait to see you there It’s always such a nice place to be With you Now I’m standing here beside you And everything’s ok Still I’m feeling kind of frail here I just want to shrink away I can’t wait to see you there I can’t wait to see you there It’s always such a nice place to be With you If I could just get over it If I were comfortable in my skin I’d walk into the room And I’d be fine

Freaking Out 02:44
You’re freaking out in your usual way I’m standing by and I don’t have any say Call out to the world “You know this just isn’t fair!” Call out to the world And then pretend not to care We’re all about to explode into space We’re all about to have our memories erased Scream like you are six Without a care in the world Scream like you are six A little boy or a girl A little boy or a girl We’re all just standing here Waiting for the magic to appear We’re all just standing here Waiting for some magic to appear We’re all just standing here… You’re hiding out in your usual space I’m trying hard to put a smile on your face Yell back to the stars “You see it’s just a bad day!” Yell back to the stars And then act like it’s ok We’re all in charge of this invisible place We’re all in charge even if it’s a fake Scream like you are six Without a care in the world Scream like you are six A little boy or a girl A little boy or a girl We’re all just standing here Waiting for the magic to appear We’re all just standing here Waiting for some magic to appear We’re all just standing here Waiting for the magic to appear We’re all just standing here… Standing here…..

3 Days 02:49
Well they’re probably waiting to see you Probably waiting to hear you Probably waiting to love you from afar You know you’ve been looking for trouble You never act all that subtle Clever, you think you’ve climbed into their minds 3 days and you’re gone 3 days and you’re gone 3 days and you’re gone From here The party was thrown in your honor Everyone’s come together To toast to the one who made it all work out You’ve been hiding away for an hour People are starting to wonder We’ll make some excuse and show them to the door 3 days and you’re gone 3 days and you’re gone 3 days and you’re gone From here The psychic was right when she told you You’d miss an important phone call And your whole world came crashing to the ground So pack up your things and get going Something you’re always regretting Is calling you back away from this town 3 days and you’re gone 3 days and you’re gone 3 days and you’re gone From here

He’s playing a song right now He’s giving it all he can she’s wishing that she was there To see it She’s watching a tv show She’s curling up on the couch He’s wishing that he was there To see it And how they thought about it Talked about it She’s still alone And how they lived without it Dreamed about it She’s all alone He’s calling her on the phone He’s making his way back home She’s waiting with much anticipation She’s counting the days go by She’s hoping today’s the one He’ll walk through the door and call Her baby And how they thought about it Talked about it She’s still alone And how they lived without it Dreamed about it She’s all alone And how they thought about it Talked about it She’s still alone And how they lived without it Dreamed about it She’s all alone

Any Day 05:37
You ought to tell me what your name is Before we try to talk about this It’s such a hassle to be honest When you are trying to be modest Last night I saw you at the rock show Your arms were up and you were letting go Today you’re acting like a Senator Don’t you remember? Is it all a blur? Any day Any day Any day You’re gonna crack Every day Every day Every day You’re looking back Your day job leaves you wanting way more When all your friends are staying out till 4 You’re tucked into a world of dreams Tossing and turning for the thieves Just walk away just leave it all behind The freedom brings with it some piece of mind And if you’re feeling some uncertainty Remember all it is you want to see Any day Any day Any day You’re gonna crack Every day Every day Every day You’re looking back La da da da da da da da da……

Sixteen 02:29
Where you gonna go? You’re fading fast Who you gonna tell? You’ll never last You were my best friend The day I had to say Goodbye to you The day I turn My back on you I left you lying there Nobody was around They all could tell I left my camera there And it was fine You are flying now The car ride home was long And I was tired Staring into space And my heart ached I was just sixteen La la la la la la La la la la………

about

Buried in the recesses of each of our memories are images of wallflowers at those seventh and eighth grade dances. You know, one who is not wearing too much makeup or too revealing an outfit and considers it best to simply smile at her girlfriends’ comments, rather than giggle or guffaw.

The same could be said for “Friends,” the opening track of this album. In this age of media over-saturation, it’s refreshing to slip a disc into a stereo and not feel forced to be dazzled with glitzy production or self-consciously crafted big choruses, nor enticed with show-offy and/or sexy female vocals. Even when the plaintively sung “Friends” opens up for guitarist Henning Ohlenbusch to lay down a solo, the musician simply eases the listener into a feedback-rub, and we breathe a sigh of release just as singer Lesa Bezo does until the third verse arrives and she resumes her elegantly lovely ode to the simple value of companionship.

“Snow Day” follows, a charming, amiable pop gem that could grace a million play-lists. Our consciousness is now relaxed enough to admire our wallflower for her sweet nature and the only thing better than enjoying time with friends is the chance to play hooky from work with your sweetie, in order to “Curl up by the fireplace and watch a movie, something that we have seen too many times already so we can doze off and dream of days just like the one today.”
By the time the final track on the album fades out with a “la-la-la” chorus, supported by a nylon string guitar and melodica in waltz time, we’re happily enchanted and can slip this disc into the racks of our CD collections knowing that it’ll be there when we want to treat ourselves.

For its part, the spine winks back, with its playful font (fawnt?) nestling into a yellow and green background. These Fawns are bashful creatures but they are beautifully at peace with their surroundings and this musical world, with its gentle hummable melodies, strummy midtempo grooves, and sparkling pop gleam is simply “A Nice Place To Be.”
