Track Name: Should have stayed home
I'm clearing a shelf
A shelf containing books that I once read
There's nothing I'd rather do more

Like flicking a switch
A switch that helps to disconnect my head
There's nothing I'd rather do more

I should have stayed home
I shouldn't have gone out
I should have done all the things we almost talk about
Looking back it seems so clear
Look at the state I'm in I'm dying standing here
Looking back, looking back

I woke up too soon
I never seem to get much sleep these days
It's strange cause I'm always so tired
I made a mistake
And now I'll have to face the questions in my head
Oh and you know it's so true
That's why I keep on telling you

I should have stayed home
I shouldn't have gone out
I should have done all the things we almost talk about
Looking back it seems so clear
Look at the state I'm in I'm dying standing here
Looking back, looking back

I should have stayed home
I shouldn't have gone out
I should have done all the things we almost talk about
Looking back it seems so clear
Look at the state I'm in I'm dying standing here
Looking back, looking back
Track Name: Misunderstood
One time two times it seemed so much more
Love me to the end I'll see the best you can store
It's all over we don't know why
I don't see this any way to be in your eyes

Lovers we're misunderstood cause I feel good
Lovers so misunderstood cause I feel good

Take your time make it all seem so good
If I had my chance again I'm sure that I would
Over and over it goes in my head
I'm not gonna lose it over something she said

Lovers we're misunderstood cause I feel good
Lovers so misunderstood cause I feel good

You're looking for the fight you never need
It's as natural as air you breathe
She'll forgive you when it's all calmed down
It's the love that keeps your whole world turning round
You never cry

Lovers we're misunderstood cause I feel good
Lovers so misunderstood cause I feel good
Lovers we're misunderstood cause I feel good
Lovers so misunderstood cause I feel good
Track Name: Gonna have to last
Tilting the bottle you started last night
Same pleasure make it alright

Help you forget what you've not done all day
Sweet liquor to take it away

They'll watch you
And call you
Cause they need you
Which makes it so hard to walk away

Everyday is the same of the last
Each evening escape from the past

You could have gone out but you'd rather stay home
No hoper, down on your own

They'll watch you
And call you
Cause they need you
It makes it so hard to turn away

So bitter cynical and tired
But needed more than you will ever know
Old trooper you're gonna have to last

They'll watch you and call you
Cause they need you
It makes it so hard to walk away
Track Name: Too long losing
Catch me on time
Fill me in news
It's all about people and places that I'd never choose
Free? Freedom's not all that you need
All I see, I see more fear

Feel like wasting away
Nothing to say
Who's that girl

Slow down
Please believe me
This town it almost beat me
Feels like each day's been dragging you down
And you can't get your head out the ground
But there's better days coming around
Been too long losing

How can I explain a thing to you
You won't understand, I don't want you to
Should you close the door and hide away
Find that melody, feel that sunny day
Oh Breathe, just breathe
Breathe, open up and breathe

Slow down
Please believe me
This town it almost beat me
Feels like each day's been dragging you down
And you can't get your head out the ground
But there's better days coming around
Been too long losing
Track Name: You and I
Your smile is wide
And your suit is Italian and perfectly made
A silent sigh
This is what you deserve, for the game that you played

You, you don't mind
And I, I'm pleased that life's treating you kind
But we all, all get scared
So please, wake up and see what is there

Your tone has changed
Since you met all the beautiful people out there
But I'll refrain
From a distance old friend, please be aware

You, you don't mind
And I, I see that life's treating you kind
But we all, all get scared
So please, stand in these shoes if you dare

Heaven forbid you should need me
When you're finally able to see
I've been here all along
You, you have changed too

You do what you do
and you say what you say
Yet I can't help but feel like you'd rather I kept out of your way
Track Name: Into orbit
Liberated nine to fives
Packed in bars like bees in hives

Such a lot of rain must fall
Such a lot to cleanse us all
If only for a while

Send me into orbit please
By telling me you're gonna love me
Cause I don't know where love has been
I didn't know I had it in me
My back's against the wall

You and me we're just the same
look for someone else to blame
It's easier for a while

Don't you know I need you all
It's only cause I'm feeling small
I really should have smiled

Send me into orbit please
By telling me you're gonna love me
Cause I don't know where I have been
I didn't know I had it in me

Drop me down town by the bus stop please sir
I wanna get outta my head
Send me into orbit please
Send me into orbit
We'll meet you inside we'll be drinking there all night
I've been there before it's alright
Send me into orbit please
Send me into orbit
Track Name: That I have found
Yes I'm finally coming round
To the joy that I have found

I used to think one day I'd fly
Now ambition's passed me by

Now I take my chance with the quiet life
It's just the way things turned out

There are those who strive to be
On a stage for all to see

But you see that's just not me
It's not the way I know how to be

I take my chance with the quiet life
It's just the way things turned out

You just keep on being the best
And I'll do like all the rest

Cause imitation's all you'll be
Another imitator like me

So let me be unseen unknown
Till this crowd has all gone home

Hapless words and melody
I'll write for you to comfort me

I take my chance with the quiet life
It's just the way things turned out

I take my chance with the quiet life
It's just the way things turned out
Track Name: Summer
Summer is here again
It's all good
Summer is here again
It's all good

Lingering days
Stretching out in a haze
Revealing us all
A whispering breeze
While you shade beneath trees
Persuaded you must take it slow

Summer is here again
It's all good
Summer is here again
It's all good

To feel such a thirst
You must quench like your first
How sweet it will be
And when the day cools
And we're laughing like fools
Alone, my true love and me

Summer is here again
It's all good
Track Name: Last waltz
First of all it started so well
Just goes to show that you can't always tell
Through it all, pretence, and bottled up dreams
Destined to tear them apart at the seams

As she takes each step away
It's always to return
But he knows
This was the day
This was the day that he knew

With his love rejected and halved
Alone is a man who just followed his heart
Through it all, to then, so desperately plead
Who is this other who is all that you need

As she takes each step away
It's always to return
But he knows
This was the day

This was the day that he knew
This was the day that he saw
This was the day he found out

As she takes each step away
It's always to return
But he knows
This was the day

This was the day that he knew
This was the day that he saw
This was the day he found out
It's over
Track Name: A little bit of something else
You danced with me
You left with me
Two souls from the start
We got on so easily
Dream those dreams of lovers dreams that we made

You fix me up
You help me out
You're there by my side
Cause you know what love's about
Dream those dreams of lovers dreams that we made

Everybody needs a little bit of something else
I'm glad that I met you girl
Everybody needs a little bit of something else
I'm glad that I met you girl

Who knows what will
Or won't become
For now I'm content
As we lie here in the sun
And dream those dreams of lovers dreams that we made

Everybody needs a little bit of something else
I'm glad that I met you girl
Everybody needs a little bit of something else
I'm glad that I met you girl
Everybody needs a little bit of something else
I'm glad that I met you girl
