Track Name: Happiness
Do our dreams become reality?
Or do we wake up just before they do?
Let’s not waste our time with thinking back
To what might have been - it’s been & gone.
Look ahead to what we could achieve.
They say that anything is possible.
And if what they say is just a lie
I think I’ll go for it anyway.

Everybody wants somebody to be there, come what may.
I believe that I’m no different.
Dream of our perfect day.

Can I be the one that makes a change?
I just wish I knew who I could be.
Taking such a long time working out
My path & where my future lies.
Belief is something that I keep to heart.
Walking tall is something magical.
There’s a happy ending everywhere.
It just hasn’t been written yet.

Everybody wants somebody to be there, come what may.
I believe that I’m no different.
Dream of our perfect day.

Everybody’s thinking ‘bout happiness, white picket fences.
Everybody’s thinking ‘bout happiness, white picket fences.
I’m not afraid to dream of better life.
It gets me through the day.
Track Name: Your Hair
I’m obsessive
Hey, what’s your name?
The minute you say it’s etched into my brain.
Don’t be stupid
Don’t you try to run.
I’ve got your number - pick up the phone.
I’m watching you now as you gently brush your hair.

I’ve met you once & ever since I’ve thought you’re so terrific.
I don’t know why - can’t work it out - it must be scientific.
I’ve met you once & ever since I’ve thought you’re so terrific.
I bet right now you wish that you never met me.

Trailing you over the weekend.
I’ve got bad thoughts that I can’t defend.
We won’t be friends
I want to be your slave.
I’m not a butcher
But I’ve got a blade.
All I want is a locket of your hair.

I’ve met you once & ever since I’ve thought you’re so terrific.
I don’t know why - can’t work it out - it must be scientific.
I’ve met you once & ever since I’ve thought you’re so terrific.
I bet right now you wish that you never met me.
Track Name: Long Lost Smiles
Sometimes it only takes a song
Or a taste or a smell to take me back in time.
A summer breeze
Lying on the floor
Wishing that the world is yours & mine.
We’d walk for hours for something to do
Just talk & dream of the things yet to come.
Somewhere down the line
I forgot all the tears
And the wasted years
We burnt around the sun.

We took our time & time took prisoners.
We were casualties.
Long lost smiles.
Time’s gone so fast.
A lifetime ago.
Track Name: Away From Yesterday
Take a minute just to think.
Does it help when you cry?
Unnecessary pressure
It’s building up inside.
Count to ten with your eyes shut.
It isn’t all black & white.
Your eyes are open but your mind’s closed.
Now there’s nowhere to hide.

Take a breath,
Take a step,
Rest your fate on hope
And admit that you’re wrong sometimes.
A deeper breath & a bigger stride
Away from yesterday.

Crocodile tears
Pushes people away.
How many friends are left?
And do you think they will stay?
It’s not depression it’s regret.
You live in fear of the past.
You live in fear of the future
But that’s all that you’ve got.

Take a breath,
Take a step,
Rest your fate on hope
And admit that you’re wrong sometimes.
A deeper breath & a bigger stride
Away from yesterday.

All along you hear yourself say…
All along you hear yourself say…
All along you hear yourself say…
All along you hear yourself say…

Take a breath,
Take a step,
Rest your fate on hope
And admit that you’re wrong sometimes.
A deeper breath & a bigger stride
Away from yesterday.
Track Name: Vinyl
Is this how it goes?
Our digital age.
What’s the RPM?
What the Hell’s a tape?
Pause & record.
The arm of the deck to go down.
In another time
Before mp3s
We had 45s
Boxes of L.P.s
Crackle & spit
The vinyl spins ‘round & around.

The needle goes down.
Close my eyes.
Faraway.
You can’t stop progress.
I knew you wouldn’t stay.
I’ll keep what I’ve got
And randomly play.
I’ve got hundreds of tunes til I sleep.

The vinyl mix tape
Is a dying art.
It’s all drag & drop
Add to shopping cart.
Where is the soul?
It seems to have been compressed.
Bargain bucket joy
Or a free download?
Buy it online
Or walk down the road?
You’ve got the choice
The vinyl spins ‘round & around.

The needle goes down.
Close my eyes.
Faraway.
You can’t stop progress.
I knew you wouldn’t stay.
I’ll keep what I’ve got
And randomly play.
I’ve got hundreds of tunes til I sleep.
Track Name: (Someday I Will) Feel Much Better
Am I being paranoid
Or is the worst still yet to come?
It’s not that I’m an eternal sceptic
But I can’t help feeling numb.
Am I on my own?
I’m sat by the phone.
I get a sense that no one cares.
What’s wrong with my brain?
I think I’ve gone insane.
But really there’s nothing wrong.

I can’t help myself.
I can’t help you.
You can’t help me cos I don’t care.
Someday I will feel much better.
It won’t be like this forever.
Raise your voice - we’ll sing together.
Someday I will feel much better.

I’ve heard that a problem shared
Is nothing but attention gained.
Do you think that I’ve lost the plot
Or should I start feeling ashamed?
Forgive me Father
For I have sinned.
I’ve booked a window seat to Hell.
No I won’t feel down,
No I won’t feel down
Cos it’s just another day.

I can’t help myself.
I can’t help you.
You can’t help me cos I don’t care.
Someday I will feel much better.
It won’t be like this forever.
Raise your voice - we’ll sing together.
Someday I will feel much better.
Track Name: My Reasons
It’s time for all of us to move.
Move on - it’s for the best
So keep your anger in check.
Something they say about spilt milk
No point in lapping up
Or crying, crying, crying.

It’s not a natural disaster.
You can heal this wound with a plaster.
I can’t help the way you feel
Or the way you think.
Maybe it’s a lost cause.

You don’t want to hear my reasons
Cos the truth is you can’t see the right from wrong.
You don’t want to hear my reasons.
You don’t want to hear you’re wrong.
I’m sorry but not enough.
Just carry on.
Just carry on.

You can’t dwell on what we used to have.
The fun outweighed the bad
But I’m happy it’s over.
You’re better off doing your thing
Without us, we’re poles apart.
Stop moaning, hating, biting.

Everything moves a little faster.
Why did you make it so much harder?
I got tired of all your of all the things
That you used to say.
I guess you were a lost cause.

You don’t want to hear my reasons
Cos the truth is you can’t see the right from wrong.
You don’t want to hear my reasons.
You don’t want to hear you’re wrong.
I’m sorry but not enough.
Just carry on.
Just carry on.
Track Name: A Thousand Years
Not who you are but what you’ll do for me.
I know that’s wrong but that’s the way it’s gonna be.
You’re confused & I’m awake.
I’ve felt like that since 1998.
Such a picture perfect fake.
I was filled with so much hate.
You don’t know me any more
And I don’t care, I don’t care, I don’t care.

Could be a thousand years - I wouldn’t change a thing.
Could be a thousand years - I’m still not listening.
Could be a thousand years - I’ll be remembering.
Could be a thousand years - I’m still not listening.

We went out to be part of a scene.
In our teens & happy making enemies.
Drinking life & smoking youth.
I never doubted you were telling me the truth.
Memories so crystal clear.
Sometimes I think that you’re still here.
It’s not something that I want.
It’s the past, it’s the past, it’s the past.

Could be a thousand years - I wouldn’t change a thing.
Could be a thousand years - I’m still not listening.
Could be a thousand years - I’ll be remembering.
Could be a thousand years - I’m still not listening.

I will not go until we’re even.
I will not go until we’re even.
Track Name: Vietnam
I’ve seen a photo of a friend.
He looks so happy in Vietnam.
Into the jungle he has gone
On the back of an elephant.
Looking forward to his return
To hear his stories & adventures
So I can pretend I was there.

I sometimes wish that I was there.
He lives his life without a care.
I never put a rucksack on
To go away & have some fun.

He’s waking up in Eastern lands.
Finally seeking out why he’s here.
Trying to work out who he is.
In time it becomes clear.
Not happy with his life so far.
Too many ties to times gone by.
He’s in the sea, the sun shines down.

I need to holiday the world.
A holiday from life.
Can I turn back time?
Put my life on hold?
So I won’t regret a thing when I am old.
Track Name: Save Me
Standing outside in the rain
Soaking…..thinking.
Hold back tears & force a smile
“I’m fine, thank you”.
Well I’m not good.
I don’t feel ok.
Can I just have some peace & quiet?
White noise, silence, red alert.
My heart is pounding.

Save me.
My arms are open wide.
Save me.
I close my eyes & hide.
I haven’t got a clue
Never knew which path to walk down.
I cannot find a map & I’m going into meltdown.

“You’ll feel better after sleep”.
I don’t think so.
Haunted by fears I can’t explain
And I don’t want to.
Clear my head.
Deny all feeling.
It’s better that I’m feeling nothing.
Make way for the better days
Around the corner.

Save me.
My arms are open wide.
Save me.
I close my eyes & hide.
I haven’t got a clue
Never knew which path to walk down.
I cannot find a map & I’m going into meltdown.
