Track Name: Happy You're Here
To go (x4)

By the way
I swear I'll be fine
Before you up and leave I said
I swear I will be fine
You're trying to be honest
But she's holding your tongue
You keep on seeking single
But you're falling in love
And she's okay
Along for the ride
No-one looks as pretty as you when you smile
And I'll do the start
And you'll do the end
And I'll be your mercedes if you'll be my benz

'Cus we come alive
She's my kind
She's black and white
And lonely so
She I know
Skin and bone
Please don't go
I am so happy you're here
I am so happy you're here

I'm, scared of losing
Scared of losing time
And you're, scared of being
Scared of being mine
Should we, leave it all
Leave it all behind?

But it's only yours today
It's only yours today my love
Track Name: Pretty
To run
To fall
To pretend we were never there at all
To live
To love
To find out we were made of stronger stuff

And (ooh)
Do you want me?
When you're lonely
Do you see me?
Ooh
Won't you call me
When you're lonely
And you're looking like you miss someone

Now we're flying to the stars
Just to see how small we are
Just to know your little dreams
Ain't as scary as they seem
All at once the camera stops
All those little lights turn off
You're still stuck here in my thoughts
No-one asked to fall in love

To laugh
To smile
To realise that I've been staring
More than a little while
To hold
Your hand
Kiss you on the cheek
These bodies tangled for a whole damn week

And (ooh)
Do you want me?
When you're lonely
Do you see me?
Ooh
Won't you call me
When you're lonely
And you're looking like you miss someone

Now we're flying to the stars
Just to see how small we are
Just to know your little dreams
Ain't as scary as they seem
All at once the camera stops
All those little lights turn off
You're still stuck here in my thoughts
No-one asked to fall in love

I know it's so cold
But she's my Summer
I know that I'll be warm
Dreaming of her
I know it's so cold
But she's my Summer
I know that I'll be warm
Dreaming of her
Dreaming of her

Now we're flying to the stars
Just to see how small we are
Just to know your little dreams
Ain't as scary as they seem
All at once the camera stops
All those little lights turn off
You're still stuck here in my thoughts
No-one asked to fall in love
Track Name: Don't You Worry
Don't you worry about the stars
They'll come back out tomorrow
Dear, I promise you
They'll come back out and shine for you

Don't you worry about the rain
It never stays too long
And we can sit inside
Watch the little clouds go by
When we were 17
And everything we could be
And you'd sneak into
My parents house and you
You'd tell me that you love me

Don't you worry about your friends
They come and go like ships on the horizon, love
I promise you'll be fine again
Don't you worry about the job
I've got some money saved
For rainy days and we
Can go out to the seaside
Like when we were 17
And everything we could be
And you'd sneak into
My parents house and you
You'd tell me that you love me
Track Name: Asleep Again
Waking me up
Not even bright out
Open my eyes, but I never see
Could I be enough
What are you so scared of
That girl looking back at me

Don't worry I
Well I've got enough heart to get by
But sometimes it
Gets harder

No, why'd you have to go?
Well you should know by now
I love you so
And we
Woke up and saw the rain
Well we just kissed and fell
Asleep again

Now our bodies meet
Kissing under sheets
What have you got to lose?
You tell me you're scared
Say you won't go there
Oh darling what have they done to you?

But don't worry I
Well I've got enough heart to get by
But sometimes I
Oh I wish that I
Could find someone
To let me call them
Beautiful

No, why'd you have to go?
Well you should know by now
I love you so
And we
Woke up and saw the rain
Well we just kissed and fell
Asleep again

So leave here
Take your things and disappear
To long way home
Cus you know me
I'm always playing devotee
But god knows I try
God knows I try
To keep you happy

No, why'd you have to go?
Well you should know by now
I love you so
And we
Woke up and saw the rain
Well we just kissed and fell
Asleep again
Track Name: Wish
Hey whatcha gonna wish
At the top of a mountain there's a bell
You ring it once for heaven
Twice for everything you've never dreamed of
Tell me it's real love
That you'll come with me
Are you still off chasing poor pigeons
In an old memory

Away from heartache
Here I stand
Hold an eyelash in my palm
Away from heartache
Still calling out your name
God I wish you'd feel the same
God I wish you'd feel the...

Say whatcha gonna wish for
Do you even know his name
Did he promise you you could be
Another one he'd save
God I do wish I could be there
In your lonely room
But I'm always one second between
Running away, and falling in love with you

Away from heartache
Here I stand
Hold an eyelash in my palm
Away from heartache
Still calling out your name
God I wish you'd feel the same
God I wish you'd feel the...
Track Name: Numb
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 land
For tonight darling
Please stay

Well she said (oooh)
Won't you call out someone young
Someone young
Someone young
Well she said (oooh)
All the hearts here have gone numb
Have gone numb
Have gone numb

She only feels alive on her knees
Only tells the truth when she's sleeping
Never says goodbye then she leaves
Me with nothing real to believe in
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

That night I walked
Home on my own
No coat and shivered to the bone
Just thinking about
The words she said
She said it's not all
All it seems
We're just two lovers
In a caffeine dream oh
Go back to bed

Well she said (oooh)
No-one wants to be alone
(ooh)
All the hearts here have gone numb


She only feels alive on her knees
Only tells the truth when she's sleeping
Never says goodbye then she leaves
Me with nothing real to believe in
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
Track Name: For Somebody To Love (LIVE)
I swore I’d take the high road
And leave to where the night goes
Throw out all these old clothes
Oh I swore I’d had enough
Never fond of learning
To here I keep returning
Every day still yearning
For somebody to love

I met her in the Winter
Mountain top and thin air
Log cabin and blonde hair
Like someone I adore
I kissed her by the fire
She called myself a liar
All those years I never
Mentioned this before


I promised her I’d be there
I promised her I’d still care
Even with her grey hair
Still hold her by the hand
I promised her I’d love her
I promised her I’d love her
Said I know I’m just a fool but
I’ll try to be your man

Three months we were happy
Never going back, we
Found all our problems
But fixed them with a smile
But slowly they kept coming
Til her heart wasn’t running
And one day she told me
“Let’s not talk for a while”

I haven’t seen her since then
No I haven’t kissed her since then
She sent me on a message
“Can’t do this any more”
I hung my head in silence
I drank til there was silence
I I promised I would never
Another heart adore

I swore I’d take the high road
And leave to where the night goes
Back to being alone
Oh I swore I’d had enough
Never fond of learning
To here I keep returning
Every day still yearning
For somebody to love
Track Name: Good Enough (Live)
Tell me this
Do you wanna know every boy I kiss
From my heart I didn't mean it
It's just life
You know I find it hard sometimes
From my heart I didn't mean it
Can't let it go
Knowing you're sleeping on your own
From my heart I didn't mean it

So I set fire to the weekend I
Don't want no love
Don't want no love
Two friends and a drink inside
We're all in love
We're all in love
Now I'm trying to break your heart
It can't be love
It can't be love
Set fire to the weekend til I'm
Good enough

Now gone away
Do you think you could come back here one day
From my heart I hope you forget
This stupid boy
And all the fighting I enjoy
From my heart I hope you forget

So I set fire to the weekend I
Don't want no love
Don't want no love
Two friends and a drink inside
We're all in love
We're all in love
Now I'm trying to break your heart
It can't be love
It can't be love
Set fire to the weekend til I'm
Good enough

Singing
We need a hero,
We need a hero today (x2)


So I set fire to the weekend I
Don't want no love
Don't want no love
Two friends and a drink inside
We're all in love
We're all in love
Now I'm trying to break your heart
It can't be love
It can't be love
Set fire to the weekend til I'm
Good enough
