Track Name: Wouldn't It Be Nice 2B Human?
The lights are dying 'cross the city
And nothing is as dark as it seems,
But the mind of a lonely girl
Is not quite as quiet as her dreams.

And oh, wouldn't it be nice to be human
For a change?

She left her problems behind her,
Exchanging them for circuitry.
But the body would not last
And her joints began to crack.

And quickly she became
Obsolete.
Obsolete.

Molly left the city and headed for the sea
To lay her spirit down to sleep.
But before she closed her eyes,
And much to her surprise, another girl fell into her dreams!

And oh, wouldn't it be nice to have the words!
What could she say?
What could she say?
What could she say?
What could she-
Track Name: Let's Sway (Beneath The Oak Tree)
Let's sway
Beneath the oak tree.
Oh, let's sway!
I saved a spot for you,
Right next to me.

The prettiest blue-eyed boy
I ever laid my eyes on!
The prettiest angel face!
I can't describe what I'm feeling...

Feeling blue for you.

Let's play
Beneath the oak tree.
Oh, pretty boy!
Do you really wanna dance
With me?

Feeling blue for you.
Feeling blue for you.

Your daddy don't like me.
Your mama don't like me.
Your brother don't like me
'Cos I don't look like you.

Feeling blue, it's true.
Feeling blue for you.

Let's sway
Beneath the oak tree.
Oh, let's sway.
I saved a spot for you:
Right next to me.
