Track Name: Something New
SOMETHING NEW

I needed something new
Just someone to pull me through
I put my trust in you

I thought you knew the score
‘Cause I’d been burnt before
You promised something more

They say what doesn’t kill you
Only makes you stronger
But this feels too familiar
It only brings me down

I'm needing something new
I'm wanting something new
I'm needing something new
I'm wanting something new
Track Name: Your Love Is My Blanket
YOUR LOVE IS MY BLANKET

These black clouds they get me down
It always seems to rain each time I leave the house
Sometimes it feels like there's nowhere to hide
Just can't get warm on the inside

But I know when I feel like this
There's a place that I can't resist
And I'll always come back to you

Your love is my blanket, it keeps me warm
Track Name: X Hits The Spot
X HITS THE SPOT

Say what's happened to all my clothes?
What's happened to all my furniture?
You know it can't just disappear
Could have sworn I left it there

Oh yeah & somebody said they thought they'd seen you
Running for the mile
Got something on your mind?
Something to pass the time

And X hits the spot when you're not around
And you'll find your way since you're not around

Okay, I admit it, I've found another force
Bound of course of course to feed another day

Hey Mister did it look bad when your lover cut you up?
Something coming on, can feel it coming on

And X hits the spot when you're not around
And you'll find your way since you're not around
And X hits the spot, yeah

Okay, what's happened to all my clothes?
What's happened to all my furniture?
You know it just can't disappear
And I know I left it there
Track Name: Last Final Cigarette
FINAL CIGARETTE

Thoughts are running around in my head
I think of all the things that we said
I take some time to ease my mind
And contemplate smoking one last final cigarette

Time ... it keeps playing tricks with my mind
Here today, fast forward, rewind
A moment lost my chocolate watch is broke
But it still tells the right time for twice a day

And you’re looking for something
Guess we’re all looking for something

STOP! Start over again but this time with feeling, amen
There’s a man taking final requests
And he’s pointing a gun to my head

'Cause he’s looking for something,
Searching for something
Looking for something
Hoping for something
Looking for something
Guess we're all searching for something
Hoping for something
Guess we're all searching for something

And if you find out what it is won’t you let me know?
Said, if you find out what it is won’t you let me know?
Won't you let me?
Won’t you let me know?

You're looking for something
Guess we're all searching for something
He's looking for something
Guess we're all searching for something, something
Track Name: You Say You're Leaving
YOU SAY YOU'RE LEAVING

You say you’re leaving, you’ve got your reasons and now you’re moving on
You’ve had your doubts but, just hear me out ‘cause, for what it’s worth here you’ve got me all wrong!

You say you’ve made your mind up and that you want to break up ‘cause of what’s been going on ever heard of ‘innocent ‘til proven’? You’ve got my assets frozen, do you really think I’d be carrying on?

Yes, Sally may be young and free, and Bernadette won’t leave me be
But how can I make you see that it’s only you that holds the key to my heart?

Tell me I’m dreaming, I thought that we were in this for the long haul.
Can’t we, can’t we talk it over, completely sober?
I don’t really know what we’re fighting for

So you’ve made your mind up and now you wanna break up? Well just let me make this clear. It’s a storm in a teacup, unfounded secrets
Just don’t believe everything that you hear

Yeah, Sally may be young and free, and Bernadette won’t leave me be
But how can I make you see that you’re the only one for me?
Yeah, Sally may be young and free (“She may be young and free”)
And Bernadette won’t leave me be (“Leave me be, leave me be”)
But how can I make you see, that it’s only you that holds the key to my heart?
Track Name: Cherry, Cherry
CHERRY, CHERRY

Baby loves me, yes, yes, she does
Ahh, the girl's outta sight, yeah
She says she loves me, yes, yes, she does
Gonna show her tonight, yeah

She got the way to move me, Cherry
She got the way, Cherry, baby, alright

Tell your Mama, girl, I can't stay long
We've got things we gotta catch up on
Mmm, you know, you know what I'm sayin'
Can't stand still while the music is playin'

You ain't got no right, no, no, you don't
Ahhh, to be so exciting
We won't need bright lights, no, no, we won't
Gonna make our own lightning

She got the way to move me, Cherry
She got the way to groove me
Cherry, baby, alright

No, we won't tell a soul where we're going to
Girl, we do whatever we want to
Ahhh, I love the way that you do me
Cherry, babe, you really got to me

She got the way to move me, Cherry
She got the way to groove me
Cherry, baby, alright

She got the way to move me, Cherry
She got the way to groove me
Cherry, baby, alright

Alright, alright now
Track Name: Mary Jane
MARY JANE

Mary Jane, she comes & goes but where she goes no-one knows
She says she will, then she won't ... I don't know
She left me hanging out to dry. I'm hung up on the line
Going out of my mind all the time

Reservations at the station let you down
While the highway men get street-wise with the clowns
And Mary Jane's nowhere to be found

All these days pass me by. January, July ... this year's over before it's begun and there's no questioning why, when you're flying so high
You forget when it's time to come down

Came to my senses, lowered my defences
Though I'm still believing you've got me daydreaming ....
Mary Jane, love to turn you on
Mary Jane
Track Name: Be Careful What You Say
BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU SAY

Be careful what you say, ‘cause every exchange
It all gets filed away, and it can all come back to you.
They’ve cameras in the trees, and microphonic bees
Recording every sneeze and it can all come back to you
Yeah, it can all come back to you, said it can all come back to you
And it will all come back to you

Young William McTell, keeps nothing to himself
His every waking thought, he types up in his big blue book
And poor Rhianna Finch, can hardly budge an inch
So busy on her phone, she has to stay at home alone
She needs to stay at home alone, she lives her life at home alone
And Tweets her friends back home alone

Remember a time we kept things to ourselves?
You’d know your secret stayed with someone else
And diaries were padlocked hidden on the shelf
Personal data had a time and place but now if you want to keep a secret safe, you have to hide it from yourself

BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU SAY, JUST BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU SAY
BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU SAY, ‘CAUSE IT CAN ALL COME BACK TO YOU, YEAH IT CAN ALL COME BACK TO YOU, SAID IT CAN ALL COME BACK TO YOU AND IT WILL ALL COME BACK TO YOU!
Track Name: Turn Around Or
TURN AROUND OR

I’m lookin’ for some action, need some satisfaction
Each and every day
I feel I’m going under, best laid plans asunder
Searching for a way
I’m spinning on an axis, I’m taking things for granted
You’ve got me where you want me
Why do you ignore me?
Turn around or walk away

Turn around or, turn around or walk away

I’m feelin’ kinda homesick, strike another matchstick
Light the fire and watch the flame
He’s staring down a shotgun, better watch your back, son
Only you to blame
'Cause we’re spinning on an axis
All caught up in this rat race
And you’re looking so much younger, feeling so much older, turn around or walk away

I’m lookin’ for some action
Track Name: Smile
SMILE

I don't want to let you down
I just wanna take some time to think about the way I feel ...

I don't wanna mess you around
I need some time to work this out and to think about the way I feel

But only you can make me smile
You make me smile
And only you can make me cry
Track Name: If Ignorance Is Bliss
IF IGNORANCE IS BLISS

Oh, if ignorance is bliss then why do we seek knowledge?
Oh, where ignorance is bliss, 'tis folly to be wise!
If ignorance is bliss, then why aren't people happy?
Oh, if ignorance is bliss, we should feel happy all the time, so ...

Why are you so sad?

Oh, if chivalry is dead, then why am I upstanding?
They say that chivalry is dead, I'm still impelled to hold a door!
But if chivalry's alive then why are we so lonely?
Good manners maketh the man yet I feel such a bore, oh ...

Why are you so sad?

You win, you lose, you try again
You live, you love, you try again
You make your bed and lie in it ...
Track Name: Callin' Out
CALLIN’ OUT

Sailed the seven seas
Read a million books
Crossed some muddy waters
Just to take a look

Stood on the banks of the Mersey
Callin’ out your name
But the tide rolled over
You never came

If I’d known now what I thought I knew then
Seems the grass was greener in your garden
Well I loved you then & I still love you now
Like a candle that you can’t blow out

You can knock me down
But I’ll get up again
For such a one-horse town
You’ve got a lot of friends

Well you fly like a butterfly
You sting like a bee
But you’re all I’ve got
You’re all I need

If I’d known now what I thought I knew then
Seems the grass was greener in your garden
Well I loved you then & I still love you now
Like a candle that you can’t blow out
Track Name: Morning Star
MoRNinG STaR

Sometimes I wake and can't even remember my name
Four in the morning I'm walking these streets once again
Feel like I spend most my life in a dream
Finding it hard to distinguish between
All these chancers and Muppets
Good folk and false prophets

Are you the Morning Star shining for everyone?

Stock up on coffee and fake news to get through the day
Not sure where we're going but where there's a will there's a way

The North is too barren
The South is too stressed
The East is divided
The West is the best

So let's head for the hills and just see what comes our way

Are you the Morning Star shining for everyone?

Shine on, shine on ...
