Why 03:29
40 Hours I’ve been staring at the wall 40 hours I’ve been waiting for your call Every hour getting longer than the last Every hour feeling like I never had a past before we met Why, say why, do you insist on wasting my time And I just sit around and wait Why, say why, do you insist on wasting my time Why do I wait, why do I wait There’s a girl I knew before you came along She was happy and she knew where she belonged I don’t recognise her face anymore Coz she’s changed so much since you walked through her door Why, say why, do you insist on wasting my time And I just sit around and wait Why, say why, do you insist on wasting my time And I just sit around and wait For the moment when, you’re gonna look my way Watch me turn around, watch me walk away Coz there’ll be no second chance, for you to come back in Coz I am moving on You’ll be the lonely one You will be on your own coz I’ve got another song And I’m gonna sing it my way I’m gonna sing it loud And I will just sing on Yeah I will just sing on and on and on and on and on and on and on Why, say why, do you insist on wasting my time And I just sit around and wait Why, say why, do you insist on wasting my time Why do I wait, why do I wait. x2

Too many sleepless nights Too many times we’ve been through all the same old fights Don’t care who’s wrong or right don’t care about why we don’t see eye to eye What’s the point in lying, that’s the reason why I tried to look away I tried ignoring all the pain we caused ourselves If things just stay the same, I swear I’ll go insane before I kill myself You’re still asking why, that’s the reason why. When the flame starts to fade, it’s time to wake up When the pain is too much, it’s time to break up When your life is a lie and your soul starts to cry, you ask why That’s the reason why. Another glass of wine, and I will tell you everything I feel inside There’s nothing left to hide, no keeping face no putting up another fight Still you’re asking why, that’s the reason why When the flame starts to fade, it’s time to wake up When the pain is too much, it’s time to break up When your life is a lie and your soul starts to cry, you ask why That’s the reason why

Nice to see you, little brother Nice to see you home again We used to laugh with one another We used to fight remember that Good to see big brother, Good to see you home again. We used to talk with one another Listen to the Smiths and the Bunnymen Brother it’s up to us, sister it’s up to me and you I dream of a world where time stands still Come on let’s drink to us Give us more strength to see it through Show me that we will be alright Good to see you little sister Good to see you home again We used to sing with one another We used to dance until we fell. Brother it’s up to us, sister it’s up to me and you I dream of a world where time stands still Come on let’s drink to us Give us more strength to see it through Show me that we will be alright

Sometimes 05:52
Sometimes I hear your voices deep inside, they talk of hate, they talk of pride They won’t sing to hold me tight, they wanna hurt, they wanna fight A prison built of poisoned speech, a light of hope just out of reach Transmitter try to rescue me! but you won’t let them find their way For fifteen years we’re in that fight I’m battle weary I’m battle tried So many years just you and I destroyed my weapons made of light Why don’t you grab somebody else, when will I learn to free myself How does it feel to be alive? I don’t remember - tell me why! Demon why I have to walk that road with you sometimes and Just tell me why I can’t find a place to hide Demon why I have to walk away with you sometimes Just tell me why I can’t find some peace of mind - sometimes I hate to see you grin and smile I hate to see through dark red eyes Sometimes you make me hurt the one Don’t wanna be like Satan’s son Why don’t you grab somebody else? When will I learn to free myself How does it feel to be alive? I don’t remember - tell me why! Demon why I have to walk that road with you sometimes and Just tell me why I can’t find a place to hide Demon why I have to walk away with you sometimes Just tell me why I can’t find some peace of mind - sometimes SOLO Demon why I have to walk that road with you sometimes and Just tell me why I can’t find a place to hide Demon why I have to walk away with you sometimes Just tell me why I can’t find some peace of mind - sometimes

Cry 04:03
I dress in grey, it’s how I feel inside There’s a black satellite in my life, life I dress in blue, as dark as night The colours set the tone of my cold grey life Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh My jeans are torn, to shreds of white Tears no longer fall from my eyes Don’t want it to show, so I try to be alone Can’t you hear the doves, the doves that cry, cry, cry Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh You’ll never know You’ll never know so don’t try You’ll never know how deep I cry My heart is black, it’s burnt to ash There’s a black satellite in my life Shattered glass, rips through my mind Can’t you see the tears, the tears that cry cry cry Oooh ooh oooh oooh ooho

People are talking and chatting and tagging pictures of you Sitting in cafés, in clubs and in bars having a few Beers cocktails, women whatever. What should I do Live it up, drink it up, fuck it up, try to be you? Don’t blame me You see what you want to see You hear what you want to hear And I’ll say goodbye Talk to me - say what you want to hear Tell me what I should say And just walk away This is no prison and you are no captive feel free to decide I’d rather be stuck in the bush or the outback than stuck by your side Don’t use me for pleasure or simple amusement, passing your time Plenty of mothers have plenty of sons I will be fine. Don’t blame me You see what you want to see You hear what you want to hear And I’ll say goodbye Talk to me - Say what you want to hear Tell me what I should say And just walk away

In my head 05:32
All I wanna do is take a walk with you, is that so bad? Take a walk through the park hand in hand, is that so bad? All I wanna do is take a shower with you, is that so bad? Listen to some music put some high heels on, you can watch me dance Later on when we get tired we can lay down on the bed But I know the only place that that is gonna happen, is in my head. My head, in my head, I pretend that you’re there in my head. All I wanna do is write a song for you, is that so bad? Write about all the things I’d do with you if you were there. Even though I know it’s never gonna happen, it’s not so bad. Coz I know that every time I close my eyes, you’re in my head. My head, in my head, I pretend that you’re there in my head. In my head, in my head, I pretend that you’re there in my head. Oooh My head, in my head, I pretend that you’re there in my head. My head, in my head, I pretend that you’re there in my head.

Saw you standing there, with your spiky hair Doctor Marten boots, tartan trousers too Cheek bones of steel: Is this boy for real? Like a flash of light, you caught my eye What could I do, he shot my heart in two He came from out of the blue Who was that girl? She’s not from your world With her cheap tattoos, and stiletto shoes She saw you looking at me, I saw her face turn green She felt our chemistry, and then she started to freak What could I do, he shot my heart in two He came from out of the blue Go and now go, walk out the door. Don’t turn around now coz you’re not welcome anymore Well I saw you walking with that girl just the other and I knew that you had seen me coz you looked the other way But if you come back to see me and expect me to be free, I’ll have changed that stupid lock and I will throw away the key. What could I do, he shot my heart in two He came from out of the blue

Hideaway 04:28
You wanna know, but I’ve already told you, I’ve already told you. I’m not so good at taken in bad news, taking in bad news I’d rather hide my head in the sand, my head in the sand Than hear you say the world has gone bad, the world has gone bad Turn it off, turn it off. I wanna place to hide away I want a place to hide and I can turn it off. Too many people are dying for no reason, dying for no reason. Me watching on is not gonna please them, not gonna please them. Turn it off, turn it off. I wanna place to hide away I want a place to hide and I can turn it off. Turn it off, turn it off. I wanna place to hide away I want a place to turn it off. Turn it off, turn it off. I wanna place to hide away I want a place to hide and I can turn it off. Turn it off, turn it off. I wanna place to hide away I want a place to hide and I can turn it off.

Not here 03:56
I see your face in my dreams, I feel your breath on my skin I hear you whisper in my ear, reach out to touch you But there’s no one there beside me Move my hand under the sheet, thought I could hear somebody breathe Turn on the light so I can see but the bed is just as empty as my life is since you left me. How can I get it right, how can I sleep at night When you’re not by my side How can I love you more, when everything I have is yours And you’re not here tonight Baby what’s up you’re not here tonight? . They say the pain will soon subside, that I will find some other guy And get some joy back in my life But everyone is nothing when they’re standing in your shadow My life is turning inside out, nothing to fill my head but doubt I can’t work out what you’re about. You say you love me But you’re never there to show it. How can I get it right, how can I sleep at night When you’re not by my side How can I love you more, when everything I have is yours And you’re not here tonight Baby what’s up you’re not here tonight? I’ve cried so many tears I’ve wasted all these years And now you’ve gone away There’s nothing left for me Your smile is just a memory Your heart is full of hate How can I get it right, how can I sleep at night When you’re not by my side How can I love you more, when everything I have is yours And you’re not here tonight Baby what’s up you’re not here tonight?

Time flies 04:21
You said you loved me on our second date You got upset because I came too late Take your time boy, take your time Time flies when you’re having fun you gotta go with the flow before you start to run. Take it easy don’t you cramp my style you gotta slow things down play it cool for a while. I know you like me but I need my space You’re always calling on me night and day Take your time boy, take your time Time flies when you’re having fun you gotta go with the flow before you start to run. Take it easy don’t you cramp my style you gotta slow things down play it cool for a while Give me what I want, give me what I love, give me what I need, keep me waiting

Tomorrow 05:28
No skies of blue no cherry on top No happy end; it sucks – no hope for tomorrow The clouds are grey there’s no silver lining I’m suffering; it sucks – it’s my turn to wallow The days are long the hours are endless The minutes drag by: cut – can’t wait for tomorrow The dead of night is when I get lonely It’s my danger zone; it sucks – I think of you only But I know you’re on your way And it won’t be too long, another day And I know, I’ll see you tomorrow, and I know I’ll see you again Yeah I know, I’ll see you tomorrow And everything will be, everything will be okay. No pot of gold at the end of the rainbow No starry skies; it sucks – can’t wait for tomorrow Can’t see the light, and my cup is empty, My tunnel is black; it sucks – no hope for tomorrow. But I know you’re on your way And it won’t be too long, another day And I know, I’ll see you tomorrow, and I know I’ll see you again Yeah I know, I’ll see you tomorrow And everything will be, everything will be okay. Aha aahaa ahha
