    This album is pay-what-you-like-including-nothing! That means you can have it for free, or pay me a million dollars for each track, if you feel like it. However, if you pay less than $1 for the album or for any individual track, it all gets eaten up with Bandcamp and Paypal fees and I get nothing (so you might as well enter 0).
    If you don't like using Paypal, feel free to download the album for nothing and then buy a CD at a show!

Track Name: My River Song
When we met I knew I'd seen your
face before in the future once
I was so sure that you'd remember
How can I convince you I'm the one?

Every day I try to remind you
of the things we'll do one day
You'll get it soon, you're awfully clever
But for now it's hard to make you stay

And I know you like I know the back of both my hands
You and I one day we traveled here and far to distant lands
When you're with me things won't have gone wrong
Until then I'll sing my river song

You have told me all your secrets
That you can't tell anyone
Our love light's an unlit ember
We'll burn bright, but now you turn and run

Even when you're near I'm wishing
You'd coming walking through that door
Save me from the past and present
In the future we'll have so much more

And you know me like you've known no one else in your time
Lord I know we'll get there someday
The wait though, is a crime
When I'm with you things won't have gone wrong
Until then I sing my river song

Each day of my future is our past
Each one of your firsts will be my last.
Track Name: Fictional Love
When I was a girl I wrote silly love songs
I now regret
That favorably compared me and the boys I liked
to Romeo and Juliet
But now I'm older and now I'm wiser
and now I recognize
What real, functional relationships look like
So it should come to no surprise that

I want you to be the Harry to my Sally
Can you be the Zoe to my Wash
We could be like Han and Leia
'Cause I know you love me
Like Willow loved her Oz
(I will fight you)
Be the Phroso to my Venus
Or the Westley to my Buttercup
We could spar like Benedick and Beatrice
I know we'd never get enough
If we had fictional love

Pour me a gin and tonic
and I'll be the Nora to your Nick
You could be Scott Pilgrim to my Ramona Flowers
if I grew my hair like this
And if either of us had to die
Tragically or otherwise
I'd rather be your Hazel Grace
or your Angel Dumott Schunard
You could be the Zero Cool to my Acid Burn
Or the Ron to my Hermione
We could spar like Lizzie and Mr. Darcy
You know just how it would be
If we had fictional love

I don't want a fairy tale
or a tragic love that ends in tears
Don't lead me on like Aragorn
Just be my Faramir
We could ride your scooter through Monmartre
Like Nino and Amelie
Or dance across the rooftops
If you'd be the Bert to my Mary
You could be the Phroso to my Venus
Or the Westley to my Buttercup
We could spar like Benedick and Beatrice
I know we'd never get enough
If we had fictional love

Oh you could be the
Jack to my Sally
or the Gomez to my Morticia
or the Strider to my Sai
or the Chase to my Gert
Or the Stephen to my Bang Bang
or the Booga to my Tank Girl
Or you could be my Little Prince
and I could be your rose
Track Name: Zoe's Silver Spacesuit
It was the fall of 1968
and I was 13 years old
Sitting by the telly on Saturday night
Waiting for a world to unfold
Full of spacemen and monsters, adventure galore
And a girl who was just like me
Suddenly danger erupted and I
Jumped behind the sofa so I wouldn't see

She and Jamie clung to the console
spinning through nothing at all
(clap clap, clap clap)
As the camera revolved around
my jaw dropped the floor
Because I saw

Zoe's Silver Spacesuit
I'm sure I shouldn't feel the way that I do
But her button nose is so cute
Zoe, could I love you?

She was so clever, so smart and so rare
She was all I wanted to be
Nobody else could ever compare
To the girl from Station W3
Oh I couldn't tell my friends, I couldn't tell my mum
Nobody would understand me
How my feelings could be so strong
For that girl from the 21st century

If only the Doctor would visit me
and take me through space and time
There's only one place that I'd want to go
The year 2000 would suit me fine

Jamie's nice but he's just a boy
she was so much more
As that console revolved around
my jaw dropped to the floor
When I saw

Zoe's Silver Spacesuit
I'm sure I shouldn't feel the way that I do
But her button nose is so cute
Zoe, could I love you?
Track Name: Seersucker Prince
I'd run out of steam before ever catching up with you
Your tenacity is quite admirable,
but there's always something you can't quite do
If you keep on chasing the stars in your eyes
You'll never find anything, what a surprise
But if you find something, you'll make it enough
To stop me from calling your bluff

Waltzing after my seersucker prince
My herringbone tiptoes 'round him for an instant
first I lead him, then let him steal the lead
Now he's stolen my heart from me

When you're born in the gutter, you'll always end up in the port
Don't let it worry you all too much dear
I'd never lump you in with that sort
If we can stop blaming the fault in our stars
Then maybe someday we'll be richer than czars
Keep up your chin dear, sing this with me
la di dee dah di dee dee
Track Name: Oh, Vincent
Oh Vincent
Your matriarchs didn't have luck at home
Your mother and hers raised their kids alone
They sent their shiftless men packing off
No wonder you wanted better odds
Oh Vincent
You made all the girls at school swoon and sigh
The redhead they all wanted to be like
And to be near

Oh Vincent you had it all, what else could you want
Burning your candle at both ends, you did it all
All the boys and the girls 'round your little finger with
Beauty and talent and wit and luck at first

Beautiful, this day
Beautiful, this day
Beautiful, this day
No matter

Oh Vincent
You traveled the world with your lovers
Eugen at home writing letters, begging
You to return to Steepletop
Wanting you near, but you just couldn't stop
Oh Vincent
When you lost your world that night, didn't it sting
Couldn't find solace in anything
Your head full of what was gone up in flames
Even the morphine could only ease the pain

Oh Vincent you had it all, what else could you want
Burning your candle at both ends, you did it all
All the boys and the girls 'round your little finger with
Beauty and talent and wit and luck at first

Beautiful, this day
Beautiful, this day
Beautiful, this day
No matter who has died
Track Name: Paper Towns
I was a dreamer and you were a dream
You were a schemer and we were a team
You showed me the way to a dozen places new
Hidden from sight 'til I followed you
Where I could build you a castle of stone and sand
No wishes or dreams, just these two hands
Let's go, we should have hit the road yesterday
Roll out the map, show me the way

And take me to a paper town
We'll take hands and tear each building down
see what's hidden behind the lie
See what's real, see what's inside

I'll let you take the mask from off my face
You'll just see a star as it falls from grace
Only if you promise to let me in
And never ever to never never ever let me down again
I want something real, something I can touch
I've spent my whole life wanting it this much
Maybe I'm fool to still believe
That you're the hero I thought I'd need

To take me to a paper town
You and me, we're gonna burn it down
We're gonna set this whole town aglow
Should have set a match to this place long ago

Even if you never return my call
You'll always be the one who set me free
Please take my weight, don't let me fall

And take me to a paper town
We'll take hands and tear each building down
see what's hidden behind the lie
See what's real, see what's inside
Take me to a paper town
You and me, we're gonna burn it down
We're gonna set this whole town aglow
Should have set a match to this place long ago
