Track Name: Great White Northern Lovers
Once we were lovers in the Great White North
In June the summer brought the thaw
Now we're just shadows dancing on the porch
How I long to be lovers once more

Once we were killers in the heat of the sun
Playing soldiers with the branches of the trees
Now I'm the roots sprawling deep beneath the earth
Just an anchor for the filth and fallen leaves

All these sacred winters
You still can chill me to the bone

Once we were lovers in the Great White North
In June the summer brought the thaw
Now we're just shadows dancing on the porch
How I long to be lovers once more

Once we were mountains that split the earth in two
And the seraphim were worshiped from our peaks
Now I'm the dirt beneath the lilies on your grave
So consumed with love that I can barely speak

All these sacred winters
You still can chill me to the bone

Once we were lovers in the Great White North
In June the summer brought the thaw
You took another love
Embraced him in the warmth
Now we're Great White Northern Lovers no more
Track Name: (I Love You Most On) Halloween
I love you most on Halloween
Sink your glow-in-the-dark fangs deep into me

You're pretty sweet at Easter
I'll unwrap you Christmas Eve
I love you most on Halloween

I dig you most on Halloween
Take off the catsuit the mask you can leave

You slay me on St. George's
On St. Patrick's Day you're green
I love you most on Halloween

Show me a trick and I'll be your treat
If I knock your door would you give me something sweet?

I love you most on Halloween
I'll be your Lugosi if you be my Browning's Freak

You light up on November fifth
You can be my May Day queen
But
I love you most on Halloween
I love you most on Halloween
Track Name: Big Love
You and I were meant to be
The greatest love the world has ever seen

Sure as the moon moves the sea
The stars above they shine for us alone

You are the rose binding my crown of thorns
Yours is the light turning night into dawn

And now I know
These hearts could be the sweetest thing we own
And when we go
This love will take its place upon the throne

And when my lungs give in
Your body is the oxygen
To grant me life anew

When the earth has ceased to spin
Your eyes house distant galaxies
Some celestial tattoo

Yours is the chariot of flames
That paints our love across the sky
A kaleidoscope of majesty

And in the end though we will die
Those lights remain
An illuminated canopy

And now I know
These hearts could be the sweetest thing we own
And when we go
This love will take its place upon the throne

And now I know
These hearts could be the sweetest thing we own
And when we go
This love will take its place upon the throne
