Track Name: You Would Have Loved Him Too
Young, young
Get undone
At the sight
Of someone new
Gotta look, at the stars
See how
Small we are
Oh
You would have loved him too
Track Name: Numb
(Verse 1)
From the red bar
To the red couch
Her little red heart fell out
She don't believe in Gods,
That make her pray

I sold her my old
Little black soul
For a big pot of gold
She was saving for
A rainy day

She told me her love
Isn't enough
We should be made of thicker stuff
So she threw it all
She threw it all away
I said take my hand
We'll make a stand
Tomorrow we'll leave to foreign lands
For tonight darling
Please stay..

She said (ooh)
Won't you call out someone young?
Someone young
Someone young..
She said (ooh)
'Cus all the hearts here have gone numb
Have gone numb
Have gone numb..

(Chorus)
She only feels alive on her knees
Only tells the truth when she's sleeping
Never says goodbye when she leaves
Give me something real to believe in
I promise I won't tell them it's you
If the doctor asks why I'm bleeding
Tell them I just fell in too soon
All of these wounds are
From dreaming of you

(Verse 2)
So that night I walked
Home on my own
No coat and shivered to the bone
I was thinking 'bout
The words she said...
She said it's not all,
All as it seems,
We're just two lovers in a caffeine dream oh,
Go back to bed..

She said (ooh)
No-one wants to be alone
To be alone
To be alone
She said (ooh)
But all the hearts here have gone numb
Have gone numb
Have gone numb..

Chorus
Track Name: Tell No-One
And you
Stole the lock, not the key
I was born, with someone else's dreams
And I
Was the flock
Not your sheep
But I'd do
Anything
So we call
Other ships, and other sons
In the wake of a whisper
I'll be gone
And we fall
But we fall, on our feet
So we'll tell no-one
No we'll tell no-one


And you
Were the one
I adored
You said I
Never looked like this before
But I
Kept my feet, in the clay
But darling I'm coming back to today
So we call
Other men, with other guns
In the wake of a whisper
I'm someone
And we fall
But we fall, on our feet
So we'll tell no-one
No we'll tell no-one


Now I've, been wrong but it fees so right
This Summer rain changes everything
So hold me tight 'til the Berlin light
Comes in, our eyes and out
Our tired hearts...

Our tired hearts...

And you
Stole the lock, not the key
I was born, with someone else's dreams
And I
Was the flock
Not your sheep
But I'd do
Anything
Track Name: Cinderella
Cinderella tell me where'd you go?
Your father said you're not at home - oh I'm
Sorry 'bout the sad love letter I wrote
Cinderella tell me who's that guy?
They saw you by his side all night - oh I'm
I'm not calling you a liar I just wanna know

Cus tonight, it's your ball and I don't, care at all
But I bought us two tickets anyway
And my mum, says it's fine if we take
A bottle of cheap red wine
And watch, the skies behind the walls of your,
School gate

(Chorus)
We'll fly away, fly away...(x6)

Cinderella tell you I see red
Don't put that slipper by your bed - oh I'm
Sorry 'bout the bad bad things I said
Don't you know who looks for you?
He'll find you all too soon - so I'm
Hiding behind coats in this crowded room
I can't buy you shiny things
But my heart sings when you're smiling - oh I'm
Sorry 'bout the drunk drunk state I'm in
I'll stop writing fairytales
Plot's for sale and my heroes
They all tried, but they all failed

Chorus

So take, these boots
I made, for you
And covered them in red spraypaint
And when, he leaves
You can walk to me
Tell me leather always fitted you much better anyway

Chorus
Track Name: Heroes
Well I'm, already over
Your feet, touch mine
When I'm scared, I feel older
When I'm tall, I say goodbye
Don't say sorry, just don't go there
Where they, don't know your name
Tell them I, I need you here
Say it's all
Gone bad
All gone bad...

(Chorus)
There's hope, for some
But you're no-one
And heroes, never die
When lies, take hold
You love, her so
But you never said it
You never said it no


Why'd you go to that river?
Why'd you sit, on your own?
Telling stories to show
It's nobody's fault
'Til your shoes, got wet
But your words I kept
But your words I kept

Chorus
Track Name: Life
So take me back behind
Hedgerows we lay behind the
Same day we lost our minds
The day we started the war
Oh we were fifteen years old
And we were fifteen boys cold
Swigging cheap vodka
Oh it was still
Worth fighting for

And you told me that day
Things would always be that way
Things would stay the same
The day we started the war
And you sold me a dream
We'd take everything we'd say
Oh we would be two kings and
Bottles in hand - oh we go

(Chorus)
La, la la la singing
These lives are for living
Won't wait no more for some
Hero, to take me away
La la la singing
We missed the last train and
Life goes too fast but now
We don't need heroes anyway


Now all my friends they've got
Girlfriends and sandwiches they
They take the bus to work
The work that they, worked so hard for
And on a Friday night they
Dance in the nightclub light they
Try find a girl they like
Or pass out with a smile on the floor
Cus they sold them a dream
Dream of the Western man the
Dream of a good health plan
To sit in a retirement home
But not me - I still believe
We'll take everything we see
Oh we will be too kings and
Bottles in hand - oh we go

Chorus
Track Name: Always A Love Song
Summer come
Back again
Shiny legs
And hairy men
Who's that boy
On your street?
Fall in love
Fall too deep
Stay up late
Get too drunk
Being lost
Is more fun
New best friend
Old nickname
Sad sad songs
And drinking games

So find your girl
Take her hand
Say she's all that you demand
Buy her roses, and be
The best boy that you can be
Kiss her now
Kiss her sweet
Kiss her gently on the cheek
And if she goes
Just go on
There is always a love song :)

Making oaths
With our blood
Making plans
With our thumb
Freedom wait
Where we want
Where want...

So fly away
Yellow sand
Grass still greener where we land
Cold cold water at my feet
Strangers I will never meet

Chorus

Do you dream
Of old cars
Do you cover up those scars
Faded now
By the light
'Til this nervous smile turns into something bright
And I
I always run
Run too far
And I
I'm always waiting far too long
For shooting stars...
Waiting far too long
For shooting stars...

Chorus
Track Name: Cheap Red Wine
Outside, where the rain drops
On the corner stores and the chimney tops
And buildings, that never know my name
It's been such a long time
I'm still drinking cheap red wine
But it
Doesn't feel
The same


You were
Such a lost soul
old pictures painted on your wall
And promises
That I'd
Never leave
But believe in something
Even if it's nothing
But don't, believe, in me
In me
Track Name: A Girl Who Isn't You
I'd be lying
If I said
That I don't love you
And I'm here today
But I want more
Than a whisper
In someone else's shoe
A new bus to take

Oh I'd be lying
If I said
That I don't miss you
Like a sunny afternoon
But I need more
Than a glimmer
Of something we thought was new
And it came, too soon


I'd be lying
If I said
That I don't love you
And I'll stay this way
But I want more
Than a dinner
With a girl, who isn't you
With a girl, who isn't you
Track Name: Postcards
Always say I'm leaving
By the window
No you don't know
It's all over - til they're singing
Well they're singing
But it's all out of tune
Out of words they spoke too soon

(Chorus)
So sing soft
Run hard
Dance alone
He's gone - she knows
But I heard
Postcards say you love her so


I heard someone saw you with me
I have head you're still so pretty
They told me you went away
Oh they told me you went away
She makes me feel God damn happy
She makes me feel like I'm lucky
It's always a warm December
It's always like you remember

Chorus

I could be your boy you see
It's always just a memory
Of who you were when you first started
Who you were when you first started
Let's pretend you never missed me
Let's pretend you never kissed me
Let's chase pigeons by that shore
Oh let's chase pigeons like before and

Chorus

Always say I'm leaving
By the window
No you don't know
It's all over - til they're singing
Well they're singing
But it's all out of tune
Out of words they spoke too soon
Track Name: Cinderella (Live)
See studio version for lyrics
Track Name: Tired
All I wanted was the sun
We sat outside the church
Watched the people passing
They're searching for the truth
You said "Truth isn't alone
It's always making friends
Friends that cook you dinner
Chicken when you're scared"
Scared of this long life
This life ain't your fault
If the fault is in our stars
Then are we waiting
Waiting for the sign
A sign to tell you when
A sign to tell you how
We all got lost then

A sign that I will kiss you

I was at the bar
I was with my friends
Friends that buy me buckfast
When they see that I am scared
But you told me I was bad
You said I broke your heart
But hearts were made for breaking
You knew that from the start
Tell me where do go
I can't find the key
I can't see the light
Light in front of me
These eyes are growing tired
Tired of the sea
Tired of these strangers
Tired of these strangers

Tired of these angels
