Track Name: Sweets Hearts and Bright Eyes
Well sweet heart It's been such a fantastic run
this is the end of my favourite one
it's top 5 for being fun
well bright eyes we fought for most of the time
doesn't mean that we were willing to die
it's just how these things end up.

When the lists are made with 5
all time moments kept in mind
the readers all can see
that despite all the negative things
we were happy

well sweet heart I'm glad that's it's finally done
another year longer we'd probably end up
quite spiteful and distant
well bright eyes I'm sorry that we're not in love
I'm sure if we keep looking we'll both find the one
it's just a brand new case of chin up

When the lists are made with 5
all time moments kept in mind
the readers all can see
that despite all the negative things
we were happy

with distance
the only promise we could keep
with a straight face
and keeping face was the only way our promise stayed
so tell all your best friends
who end up your boyfriends
that this is the way things are done
then they'll know

The lists are made with 5
all time moments kept in mind
the readers all can see
that despite all the negative things
we were happy

So tell all your best friends
who end up your boyfriends
this si the way things are done
Track Name: Purple Blue
Don't want to drink today
or smoke my lungs away
I just wanna see this night
through till tomorrow

Can't sleep or eat a thing
I wait for the phone to ring
got nothng good to do
except do nothing

In my head this is the best choice
In my heart this is what we need
I'll give us all the time
then you'll see

But there's this overwhelming guilt
that turns to paranoia
and I'm so angry at myself
that I let things gets so dire

But what can you do
when the sky turns purple blue
and you've stayed up all night in bed
letting things go to your head
you say

Don't want to drink today
or smoke my lungs away
I just wanna see this night
through till tomorrow

Can't sleep or eat a thing
I wait for the phone to ring
got nothng good to do
except do nothing
Track Name: It's All Just A long Line Of Who Did Who
everybody's got connections
and I'm not gonna do you
Because i'll hurt the one before
who did you too
I'll scrimp I'll save
I'll keep your ticket
and I'll use it on you later on
yes I'll use it on you later on

When I'm dying to touch you
I'm dying to fuck you
I'm dying alone in my bed

I'm dying to touch you
I'm dying to fuck you
you're already fucking with my head

And I could spoon out my skull
but it would still be full
and I'd be eating what I already know
Track Name: Giving Out The Up
I'm giving up
Giving out
throwing forced on smiles just to hide
because I'm pretty much not acting like myself

I trudge along
and show my teeth
but really all I'm showing is defeat
and I'm pissed off that I let these in my head

Stay back I scream and shout
I just wanna keep this to myself
But don't believe a word I say
especially when I talk this way
I don't wanna deal with this myself

So how do I let them know
If I don't even realise myself?
Am I just too stupid to even figure out

If I could keep my head up high
then maybe all of this whole thing might go away?
Man, I'm just too stupid to think that that would work

Stay back I scream and shout
I just wanna keep this to myself
But don't believe a word I say
especially when I talk this way
I don't wanna deal with this myself

Maybe I'll wake up today?
I might feel like doing something
I'll probably drink tea
and speak to Alice on the net
Maybe I'll phone Dave
and we'll get wrecked?
in any case it's all just running away

The more I do to take my mind of it
the more it feels like that I'm a part of it
I just want to feel like I'm myself

I think that I will just watch Breathless
another hundred times
untill I'm restless
Maybe fantasise I'm Jean Paul Belmondo
I'll fight the law
I'll flee to Paris
Go and find the girl
and we'll get married
I'll convince her to come run away to Rome
We'll make love everyday
and light a Chesterfield the right way
we'll smoke them untill we're old and dead
I'm giving up giving out

Stay back I scream and shout
I just wanna keep this to myself
Track Name: You, Me and Everyone We Know (back and forth forever)
I've always been a boy
who thought way too much of things
like a touching of an arm
or a simple little wink
and I'm always trying hard to fall in love again
but I'm just not into fucking
if she's never gonna be my friend

I'm trying to think back
to when I was a boy
who used to keep his heart
right next to his toys
who never thought of girls
and never got depressed
and never thought that love
could be a game
or be a test

and I see nothing wrong with how I've grown up
and i see everything as learning not mistakes
and there's a space for more if I can find her name
and I see nothing wrong with finding love again

I'll always been a boy
who thought way too much of things
like a touching of an arm
or a simple little wink
and I'll always try hard to fall in love again
because I'll never be into her
if she's never gonna be my friend

she'll never be my friend
Track Name: Silly Little Childish Love
I know we're too grown up
to keep our silly little childish love
and I know not that we're adults
it was never gonna stay
but I think we're old enough
to stay in love
with out the touching in the way

Ring me when you reach the finish line
so I can let you know what you left behind
I'm like the kid who grew too big

Well you're bound to mature a little faster than me
its enevitable with all the resposnsibility
and I'm bound to feel left behind
I've always been to slow
I'm not responsible for the enevitable

Ring me when you reach the finish line
so I can let you know what you left behind

I'm like the kid who grew too big
I feel I grew too quick
I'm like the kid who grew too big
My toys all feel so small

I'm like the kid who grew too big

Ring me when you reach the finish line
because I'm the kid who grew too big
Track Name: Sonny Skies
So screw the new lease on life
Because I saved my money
and if I'm lucky
I can buy the whole damn thing

And I've got a feeling I'm right
but if I wear my heart out
don't panic I want the kiss of life

Then I'll breathe for you
I'll make my heart pump
and scream your name

Because that's what you do

See the day through
pray the night comes bursting in
and keeps me up to date
see the day through
pray the night comes bursting in
and winds my heart
and keeps it ticking right untill we part

So here lets make this our night
because I'm feeling lucky
and if we hurry
we can do what ever we want

And I've got a feeling I'm right
but if I wear my heart out
don't panic I want the kiss of life

Then I'll breathe for you
I'll make my heart pump
and scream your name

Because that's what you do

See the day through
pray the night comes bursting in
and keeps me up to date
see the day through
pray the night comes bursting in
and winds my heart
and keeps it ticking right untill we part

Here we go tonigh
I can't keep my fingers to myself
I have to keep them over you
tonight I want us both to go

I'll breathe for you
I'll make my heart pump
and scream your name

See the day through
pray the night comes bursting in
and keeps me up to date
Track Name: A Paper Trail An Ocean Long
There's an I.O.U. where my heart should be
it reads if not returned by the 3rd then I'm sorry
you signed your name and left a kiss
but I can't read it with out my glasses

The ink is running dry
and you've been going by
a different name each week
so which one's meant for me
the ink is running dry

There's a letter waiting home for me
it's post marked from a place some where across the sea
I can feel it's filled with all these words
that I feel I don't deserve

The ink is running dry
and you've been going by
a different name each week
so which one's meant for me
the ink is running dry

It's about time
that I went out my mind

The ink is running dry
Track Name: The Boy and The Girl 2007
I hope you're happy
I hope you're happy
and every dream
is tucked away and ready to burst out

I think I'm ready
to show I'm ready
for you and me
to be the greatest things in one anothers lifes
Oh I can't wait

Do you still want me?
to kiss and hold me
to take my hand
and lead me straight up stairs into your bed

Because I still want you
I want to hold you
and make you feel
like you're the only thing in the whole world

I could be
the boy you need
and you would be the girl who want's me
to be the boy who makes her happy
and let's all her dreams come true

I hope you're happy
I hope you're happy
and every dream
is tucked away and ready to burst out

I think I'm ready
to show I'm ready
for you and me
to be the greatest things in one anothers lifes
Oh I can't wait

To be
the boy you need
and you would be the girl who want's me
to be the boy who makes her happy
and let's all her dreams come true

I hope that all your dreams come true
Track Name: Matters Of The Heart
I can take a pill for my head
but there's not one for my heart
maybe the cures in my bed
next to the hours I sleep?
Or maybe I washed them away
in the bar
drinking alone's not a very good plan
But it's all I've got left and Im a desperate man
for a little bit of company
with liquid friends inside of me
I'll scream and shout
help me
tell me what to do
now I'm not with you

Now I don't want my friends to comfort me
because matters of the heart should be left to those who own it see
and I lost yours not long ago
for not doing all the things I promised I'd do
and now look where I am
I'm down
I'm down
I'm downing more
because I wanna do myself some harm
and I'm pushed
I'm pissed
I'm pressed for luck
but you don't really give a fuck

I used to wear my heart just like a badge
but now I hide it under my shirt
just like a scar
that I'm ashamed of

I can beat my head all I want
but it will never do me any good
and I can blame my hands
my mouth
my heart
but it's everything I haven't done
and don't you drown your brown eyes over me
don't you dare
keep your tears in your eyes
I'll be the well adjusted boy one day
