'Watch the Sunrise'
(Words by Rick Moody. Music by Greta Gertler Gold.)

I tune the evening news
I pay the bills on time
I lose the thread of things

I watch the sunrise
I watch the sunrise

I'm standing in the wing
In shadows black and blue
To best describe the night
Make sure to be untrue and

Watch the sunrise
I watch the sunrise

Lower than the beetle leg
Is lower than the sky
Lower than the Summer
When it crawls off to die
The city in the other window
Is dreaming through and through
More restless than the
Turning of your tattered
Points of view

I watch the sunrise
Watch the sunrise

Hover in the grey and mist
Like a star trapped in a lake
What people think is hopeful
Is a thing that's hard to take

I watch the sunrise
I watch the sunrise

Lower than the boneyards
That lie beneath the age
Narrower than corridors
That skirt around the stage
I offer up the images
Of a night that's almost past

I watch the sunrise
Watch the sunrise

Hover in the grey and mist
Like a star trapped in a lake
What people think is hopeful
Is a thing that's hard to take

I watch the sunrise
Watch the sunrise

Track Name: Sunset Park
'Sunset Park' (Words and Music by Greta Gertler Gold & Noam Weinstein)

Drove out here
The coast was clear
From the highest ground
Felt ok
Thought we'd stay
Til the sun went down

Now the sky's so wide it's scary
And the night falls fast
And it falls so dark
For a moment in between

The sun sets over Sunset Park
The sun sets over Sunset Park

When I was two
Someone made you
In a factory
When I was eight
A boy came late
A million miles from me

Now the sky's so wide it's scary
And the nights fall fast
And they fall so dark
For a moment in between

The sun sets over Sunset Park
The sun sets over Sunset Park

Picnic with the cruise ships on the dock
Moo Moo Hot Pot noodles in a wok
Opera singer serenades a rock

Winter freeze
Cat walks the keys
In the living room
May come a day
It all melts away
But it won't come anytime soon

Now the sky's so wide it's scary
And the nights falls fast
And they fall so dark
For a moment in between

The sun sets over Sunset Park
The sun sets over Sunset Park
