Track Name: Still The Girl I Love
CAN'T WE BE NAIVE JUST FOR THE DAY?
SAY YOU'LL NEVER LEAVE, AT LEAST STAY TODAY

YOU'RE SO SWEET
I'M COMPLETE

CAN WE PLEASE FORGET HOW PEOPLE SPEAK?
WOULD YOU BE MY JANE? I WILL BE DICK

YOU'RE THE BEST
SCREW THE REST

THERE'S NO DOUBT
NO DARK CLOUD

YOU'RE STILL THE GIRL I LOVE

babe you are truly phenomenal
Track Name: Laughing
Once
I was in a dark place
Couldn't find a way out
Then I saw you laughing

Times
They were unforgiving
Always raining on me
Then I saw you laughing

You were always there
I didn't know, I swear
Right there from the start
Giving me your heart

Love
It was just a memory
Viewed from a sad angle
Then I saw you laughing

Youth
Proud but balding trophies
Left without a purpose
Then I saw you laughing

If I made you mine
A second sun would shine
Let me be your guide
Let me hide inside
You would melt inside...

I was always there
But I couldn't dare
Right there from the start
Giving you my heart
Track Name: I Can't Drive
I WANT TO BE IN YOUR SHOES
OBTAIN YOUR SKIN
DRAW A FACE OR TWO WITH EASE
I'D LIKE TO KNOW JUST HOW TO HIDE IT WHEN I'M WEAK

I ENVY YOU FOR ALL THE LITTLE THINGS YOU DO
THE LITTLE MAGIC THAT YOU CARRY
IT SEEMS YOU'VE GOT JUST WHAT I SEEK

BUT YOU'VE BEEN HAVING NO MERCY ON ME
YOU'RE LAUGHING ABOUT IT
YOU'VE BEEN SHOWING NO MERCY FOR POOR ME

I WANNA HAVE A SISTER TOO
OR SMOKE ENOUGH IN ORDER TO CATCH UP WITH YOU
I MIGHT SOUND MAD BUT PLEASE DON'T MIND

I KNOW I OFTEN IRRITATE YOU TRYING TO MAKE YOU FEEL THE SAME WAY AS I DO
I GUESS WE CAN'T HAVE JUST ONE MIND

I CAN'T DRIVE, I SAID
I CAN'T DRIVE, I SAID
THE DAY I WILL, MY LOVE WILL DIE
Track Name: In Circles
I'D LOVE TO STAY TILL THE END
I'D LOVE TO MAKE YOU MY FRIEND
BUT I'M SO TIRED

THE PICTURE'S STARTING TO FADE
ANOTHER FOOLISH PARADE
BUT I CAN'T SEE WHY

THE WHOLE TOWN GOES ROUND IN CIRCLES
NOTHING EVER SEEMS TO CHANGE
WE CAN'T TELL WHERE IT BEGINS AND WHERE IT ENDS
EVERYONE YOU KNOW'S AN EXPERT (A SMART GUY)
OR AT LEAST ACTS LIKE ONE WOULD
YES, I'D KILL SO MANY NEIGHBOURS IF I COULD

I HAD A STRANGE DREAM LAST NIGHT
SOMEONE HAD NICKED THE SUNLIGHT
A NATION IN SHADES

AND THERE I STAND IN THE DARK
WATCHING YOU LYING BY THE PARK
YOU MUST BE SO WEARY, YOU'RE SO...

THE WHOLE COUNTRY MOVES IN CIRCLES....

IT'S GOOD TO BE BACK
I'M CRAZY, I KNOW
OH DOESN'T IT SHOW?
IT'S GOOD TO BE BACK
AND NOT MISSED

THE WHOLE WORLD SPINS ROUND IN CIRCLES....
Track Name: Debbie, Bekky, Jeff & Jordi
Debbie, Bekky, Jeff and Jordi
Tell me where the ordinary folks have gone this time
Debbie, Bekky, Jeff and Jordi
Everytime I'm bored, depressed or stressed
You make me fine

Having lost old friends a long time ago
I was stranded
I was handed nasty cards I wouldn't see or show
Trans-Atlantic waves
Spanish dignity
And a pure soul from an island paved my way
I'm grateful, so you know

Debbie, Bekky, Jeff and Jordi
If I could afford it, I would buy you all nice things
Debbie, Bekky, Jeff and Jordi
If He did exist, would I be left with just six strings?

Having lost all faith a long time ago
I was lazy, I was crazy
There were times I scared myself to death
Then you came refreshing those rusty cells
I felt better
I feel super, almost God
But guys, don't hold your breath
No!
Track Name: A Matter Of Time
PLEASE DON'T MAKE ME HATE YA
JUST BE POLITE AND GO
SORRY TO EMBRACE YA
HOW COULD I EVER KNOW?

WHAT YOU'VE BEEN DOING
IS NONE OF MY CONCERN
WHERE YOU'LL BE GOING
I DON'T WANNA LEARN

PLEASE DON'T DEFEND ME
IT WOULDN'T SAVE MY LIFE
SOME THING WILL END ME
IT'S JUST A MATTER OF TIME

BABY, FORGIVE ME
DOCTORS ARE NOT FRIENDS
THEY'LL COME TO HEAL ME
AND LEAVE WITH EMPTY HANDS

NOT TRYIN' TO FOOL YA

IF ONLY I FELT FEAR, I'D CRY
IF ONLY I HAD WINGS, I'D FLY
IF ONLY I KNEW PRIDE, I'D DIE

WHO IS THIS PERSON?
(HE) LIVES UNDER MY FACE
Track Name: Love In A Rose (The Godfather Song)
love in a rose
deep in a shrine
love feels divine

you don't belong to me

belle of the ball
fearless and wild
love is a child
Track Name: Broken
A TRIP DOWN MEMORY LANE
FORGOTTEN HOW YOU CAME
I THINK WE'RE TWO OF A KIND
YOU LAUGH AND SAY I'M BLIND
I KNOW WE'LL FALL APART
BUT YOU'LL NEVER BREAK MY HEART
I NEED TO EASE MY MIND

IT REALLY MAKES NO SENSE
SO WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE?
YOU NEVER UNDERSTOOD
I WAS NEVER ANY GOOD
WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE?
MY VISION'S NOT SO CLEAR
I NEED TO EASE MY MIND

SO TURN THE TV OFF AND COME TO BED
AND MAYBE WE WILL WORK THINGS OUT
ALL THAT I EVER WANTED WAS RESPECT
I MAY BE DEAF BUT PLEASE DON'T SHOUT

YOU NEED TO BE ALONE
YOU WANT YOUR PRIVATE PHONE
I KNOW YOU LIKE HIM MORE
AND MAYBE I'M SUCH A BORE
ALREADY 24...
DID I EXIST BEFORE?
I NEED TO EASE MY MIND

WE'RE BROKEN AND IT HURTS
IT SEEMS I'M LOST FOR WORDS
YEAH, RIGHT, I'M ON MY FEET
BUT THE DAMAGE IS COMPLETE
I MUST REDUCE THE PAIN
I'LL CATCH THE PURPLE TRAIN
I NEED TO EASE MY MIND

(goodbye)
Track Name: Polaroids
Noone's ever said to me before "I love you"
Noone's ever said to me before "I care"
If you keep a place for me on your picture wall, dear
Like a well-trained fly, I'll try to fit in there

There are certain pleasures we would find
Wake me up before I lose my mind
Track Name: Dizzy
I KNOW I DON'T KNOW MUCH ABOUT YOU
BUT I SEE
A PARTY OF COLOURS AROUND YOU
JUST FOR ME

A DIFFERENT DAY IN YOUR DIARY
BUT IT SEEMS
YOU'RE THAT PRECIOUS ONE WHO'S BEEN FIRING
ALL MY DREAMS

BUT LOVE ISN'T EASY
WHEN YOU'VE BEEN FEELING DIZZY FOR A LONG TIME

THE NIGHTS THAT I'VE SPENT DOIN' NOTHING
WON'T RETURN
BUT MAYBE I WAITED FOR SOMETHING
WILL I LEARN?

I'LL TELL MY KNIGHTS, YOU TELL YOUR ANGELS
IN THE SKY
I WANT TO PROTECT YOU FROM DANGER
TILL I DIE
Track Name: F.E.O. (Fake Elegance Ordeal)
LORD, I'VE TRIED F.E.O.

HIGH AS THE MOUNTAINS
DEEP AS THE SEA
WIDE AS THE SPELL THAT YOU CAST AROUND ME

PARTY OF COLOURS
SHRINKING MY BRAIN
HARD TO TAKE IN, BOTH SWEET AND INSANE

I WAS FORCED TO BREAK YOU
MY OWN BARE HANDS DANCED YOUR PRECIOUS SKULL

YOU NEVER ASKED ME WHY
YOU KNEW I HAD TO DIG DEEP
YOU SHOULD'VE ASKED ME WHY

BROKEN PERCEPTION
SCATTERING PAST
USED GLUE TO FIX IT BUT DIDN'T ACT FAST

HAND ME A NEW STRAW
I JUST WANNA PLAY
WATCH ME DECAY AS MY MIND GOES ASTRAY
Track Name: Clumsy You
THERE ARE TIMES I FEEL SO SO SO LUCKY
AND THERE ARE TIMES I HIDE IN FEAR BELOW IT ALL
NEVER THOUGHT THAT YOU'D MISUNDERSTAND THIS
SLOWLY ROLLING 'LONG THE EASY FLOW

DO DO DO DO DO DO DA DA
IT'S CLUMSY YOU AGAIN
DO DO DO DO DO DO DA DA
THERE'S BLOOD ON YOUR FOREHEAD

I MAY NOT KNOW WHO YOU REALLY ARE
BUT I KNOW WHAT I WOULD LIKE YOU TO BE
A PURPLE LOVEBIRD RESTING RIGHT BESIDE ME
WHY D'YOU ALWAYS HAVE TO DI-DI-DISAGREE?
Track Name: Icebergs
SLEEP IN THE NIGHT
DEAD-WALK THROUGH THE DAY

LANGUAGE OF OLD
A SPLENDID DECAY

LOST EVERY TIME
ALL ICEBERGS WERE TIPPED
UNIFIED UNDER THE SUN

WHAT HAVE I DONE
TO FOLLOW YOUR PATH?

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

SHOVELING DAME
MY BEAUTIFUL CHILD

DON'T MAKE ME GO
DON'T LET ME RUN WILD

WON EVERY TIME
THE HIPSTERS UNHIPPED
CLARIFIED UNDER MY THUMB

WHAT I HAVE DONE
IS SURELY ENOUGH?
