I've been doing this for 11 years it ain't no bother.

Track Name: Wishful Drinking
All the broken hearts I hoped I caused
don't compete at all when it comes to yours
and I hope that I stayed
with all the girls that I swayed
but not the same way you did to me
because that's just fucing cruelty

When everything I've had is torn up
the only light is a darkened day

I'll sing a song for
everything that is about to come my way
and If I'm careful
I might actually get these things to stay

Even though you made me be
the boy who tore his heart right off his sleeve
I've still tried to show that my heart still grows
I've had a chance to love again
and it's a million times better then what we had

When everything you did was fucked up
the only thing is a brand new day

I'll sing a song for
everything that is about to come my way
and If I'm careful
I might actually get these things to stay
It will be sunny
it will be perfect in every single way
and If I'm careful i might actually get these things to stay
I might actually get this girl to stay
Track Name: Birmingham
That night in Birmingham
where I told you so
and you looked at me like you didn't know
But again you gave me something
that I didn't wanna see
another image of you kissing someone
that wasn't me

And I couldn't breathe
You'd finally broke me

Well I know I never handled all this well
And I always say next time I'll do better
next time I will
and I know you always felt that I was always on at you
I just didn't wanna give up
like I always do

But I had to
I had to

Now
please tell me
please tell me
please tell me why I try?
Am I addicted to the colour or the person
behind your eyes?
I need to find out.

Another night in Birmingham
we're both out again
and I tried to talk to you like a civil man
but then you turned your back on me
and you walked on back inside
and something deep with me
then curled up and died

It was no longer me
I'm no longer me

So then I kissed those girls
just to get back at you
it was something that I never could believe I'd do
and maybe thats the point where I had sealed my fate
but to be honest
I don't think I had a chance again

You're just eighteen
and stronger than me

Now please tell me
please tell me
please tell me
why I try?
Am I addicted to the colour
or the person
behind your eyes?
Now
please help me
please help me
please help me
realise that I'm no damn good

I am no damn good.
Track Name: Too easy
Oh I could impress you by acting cool
say something charming
or play the fool
but that's too easy

And I could say something to make you laugh
or work out a plan
to try and hold your hand
but thats too easy

I want to
work for you
you're worth it
you're worth it
I want you
dressed like you do
because it really turns me on

I could write something or sing a song
ask you to hear it
and sing along
but that's too easy

I could smile when you look my way
or try to make you notice me
on different days
but that's too easy

I want to
work for you
you're worth it
you're worth it
I want you
dressed like you do
because it really turns me on

When I'm off
when I'm down in the dumps
when I'm keeping my hands to myself
When I'm off
when I'm on
when I'm longing for you
with the way that you look and you smell
it doesn't help
because that's too easy
Track Name: Civil war (ache and break)
Week one of getting on
and it's going well...
for hell
and this is everything I swore I'd never do

But I'm a hyppocrite
and that's what we do
we say things that we don't mean

Day dream of getting sleep
works in my head
but not when I'm in bed

And I've got things to say
waiting around my mind
but I'm coward see
I've never found my spine

I'm a toy with broken parts
I'm a priceless piece of art
that never sells

Give up
give up stay down
get used to it
this is who you are now
give uo
give up
don;t get off the ground
you'll never change this is who you are
this is you now

This is nothing new
Track Name: Panspermia Makes Me Home Sick
I can break bones
But I can't break out fo this habit
It's an anti-social rouse

I can never sleep
it's becoming part of me
like the way i wear my hair

So if you ever see a boy like me
take his heart and tell hime that you're so happy

But you've never seen a boy like me
so broken hearted and unhappy

And he can play all night
he can sing a write these songs of how he's just not fine
and now hes down
and out for good
he's in love
Track Name: Growing Out Of Town
So I'm worse for wear
but I wear it well
It's hard to hide a frown if its wearing out.
I could force curved lips
but no one notice
I'd rather save my breath
and accept that
I'll always get over excited
for things I think are completley worth it
I'll always be the boy who falls so hard
that the force of impact breaks his heart

I feel good again
yes I feel warm again
It's all because I finally figured out what I want
I think I've got a chance
to fix these broken hands
And all I need to do is find somebody
who lets me explore all the places
usually saved for young fresh faces
I could make them sweat, want more and scream
I just need to find somebody who wants me

I can't take no more ket
I can't drink anything else
because I'm only denying myself
maybe i should take a hammer
and let it meet my head
maybe I should do the world a favour
and just stay in bed
because I'm a cunt
I'm a prick
and I am full of it

I've always lived with ghosts
of what I crave the most
most of them are fine but some just won't let me sleep
to dream of taking ships
to new distant planets
somewhere I can leave my reputation
I'll start again
I'll try harder
and if it fails well atleast I'm older
and put to use everything that I've managed to learned
until then I gotta wait my turn
