Track Name: Why
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
Track Name: That's the reason
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
Track Name: Little Brother
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
Track Name: Sometimes
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
Track Name: Cry
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
Track Name: Don't blame me
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
Track Name: In my head
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.
Track Name: Out of the blue
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
Track Name: Hideaway
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.
Track Name: Not here
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?
Track Name: Time flies
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
Track Name: Tomorrow
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.
