Track Name: The Sweetest Feeling
I couldn’t get to sleep last night
I wish you wouldn’t stay so late
Oh I shouldn’t worry but you know I always do

I guess it didn’t go too well
You didn’t seem to want to tell
Oh you shouldn’t worry cos they’ve got nothing on you

Everybody else gets tired
Everybody else gets blue
Everybody else, not me and you

Still get the sweetest feeling when you smile my way
Just like the sun it rising on a bright new day
Cast off your disappointment and put on your shades
I got a funny feeling this will be our day

Pretend we never met before
I’ll see you in the guitar store
I’ll take me a 330 and show you what I got

And hang around the record shops
You take the jazz, I’ll take the indie-pop
Oh you know that you don’t really like that stuff

Everybody else gets tired
Everybody else gets blue
Everybody else, not me and you

Still get the sweetest feeling when you smile my way
Just like the sun it rising on a bright new day
Cast off your disappointment and put on your shades
I got a funny feeling this will be our day
Track Name: Hit Town (A.T.H.E.N.S.)
I never sneaked into your room
I never read your diary
I never got past chapter one
Of your autobiography

You never made the plane in time
But somehow I made mine
And you never apologise
Because you never do

Still tell me when you hit town
Oh tell me when you hit town
Just tell me when you hit town
And I’ll come on down

You never scaled those city walls
Nobody kicked you in the balls
You couldn’t blame it on the brown
Because you don’t know how

And really honestly
It doesn’t mean that much to me
No, really honestly
It doesn’t mean that much to me


And at the after no-show disco
They laugh til their hearts are full
They never saw you in Athens or Frisco
They never saw you in Instanbul
Track Name: Try A Little Harder
You bought the milk and honey
I spent half of my money
On things I know that we don’t need

Don’t pay it much attention
Did I forget to mention?
Do what I like, I guess that I

Chorus:
Could Try a little harder, try a little harder
Try a little harder, sometimes

Forgot to phone your mother
Went fishing with you brother
I guess it’s never on your mind

You could have combed your hair or
Put on a decent pair of
Jeans but I guess it’s not your style

Chorus:
To try a little harder, try a little harder
Try a little harder, sometimes
Try a little harder, try a little harder
Try a little harder, sometimes


Who am I to give you my advice?
Who am I to criticise?
Every day while we are far away
I’m so happy that you mine

Try a little harder, try a little harder
Try a little harder, sometimes
Track Name: Reaquainted
At a disused swimming pool on the edge of town
On neutral territory, the deal goes down

And a breeze from paradise blows back her hair
She turns to face him, and match his stare

Chorus
As the credits roll, our hearts know
There is nowhere that this can go


Verse
Re-acquainted with the daylight, to my surprise
From a cinema matinee, expecting night

To an empty bar room and an ocean view
Through dusty sunlight, to share our news

Chorus
Back when everything you’d say stayed with me all day
Aint it’s funny how times can change?

Instrumental break

Chorus
As the west wind grows, our hearts know
There is nowhere that this can go
Track Name: English Weather
English weather, please don’t ask
Bring your raincoat, pack your flask

Pitter-patter raindrops on my tent
Morning sunshine came and went

Hey did you read the warnings
Westerlies on the way
Now as the pressure’s falling
Crowds will be on their way

English Weather cool and grey
Hope it stays like this all day

Meet me at the café by the lawn
Knight to F4, pawn takes pawn

Now that the weather’s broken
We’d better stay all day
All that we leave unspoken
Means there’s so much to say

English weather suits me fine
Dark and moody, clandestine
Track Name: Spirited Away
Planned to take the car out west
But the car had failed the test
So we took the bus to Worthing

Tea and doughnuts on the pier
But the sun had disappeared
and there's not too much to see there

Seems like everywhere we go
You're on the radio
I can't believe it's so

Spirited away and hey, I don't believe in heaven
but I say a prayer and imagine thet you're there
Spirited away, they say your songs will last forever
And I'll carry on though a part of me is gone

Every teenage lonely soul
needs a place to go
and you were always waiting

When the world is coloured grey
you spirit me away
to somewhere without questions

Take my place out on the bench
'phones up on my head
and listen to the dead

Spirited away and hey, I don't believe in heaven
but I say a prayer and imagine thet you're there
Spirited away, they say your songs will last forever
And I'll carry on though a part of me is gone
Track Name: London In Your Eyes
It’s hard to write a love song
With a broken heart
It’s hard to write a letter
When you don’t know where to start

Checking through the papers
Checking through the mail
Getting through the morning
Getting through the day

Chorus:
And I knew you’d forget about
The things that I despaired about
And you were never mine
I saw London I your eyes
You never tried to disguise
And you were never mine

Sitting at the bar now,
Trying to be strong
Smiling at the faces,
Trying to laugh along

Go on to a club now
Standing out in line
Getting through the evening
Getting through the night

Chorus:
And I knew you’d forget about
The things that I despaired about
And you were never mine
I saw London I your eyes
You never tried to disguise
And you were never mine
Track Name: Christmas Single (Call Me)
Yesterday is just a heavenly regret
As I stumble out of sleep

But today I’ve responsibilities
And those promises to keep

Chorus
Why don’t you call me?
Winters weighing, heavy on my heart and I
I don’t know why
If your can hear me
I’m here waiting, maybe sending sympathy,
Could get me by

Verse
And I take a little moment to myself
Making snowballs at the bar

Yeah I now I only saw you Christmas Eve
But the New Year is so far

Chorus
Why don’t you call me?
Winters weighing, heavy on my heart and I
I don’t know why
If your can hear me
I’m here waiting, maybe sending sympathy,
Could get me by
Track Name: You Wrote
Gonna take my guitar
Down from off the wall
Play myself those same old songs

Find myself a place down
by the water where the
sun is shining and the wind don’t blow

Don’t know where I’m going
But I know it’s somewhere sweeter than I know

You wrote, “Don’t tell anyone”
But you told just about everyone
I don’t mind, they can say anything
Cos I heard just about everything
That my heart needs to know

Sure as Spring will follow
From the Winter hollow
So I must be moving on

Now’s no time to worry
Let tomorrow judge me
For the path I take today

Don’t know where I’m going
But I know it’s somewhere sweeter than I know

You wrote, “Don’t tell anyone”
But you told just about everyone
I don’t mind, they can say anything
Cos I heard just about everything

You wrote, “Don’t tell anyone”
But you told just about everyone
I don’t mind, they can say anything
Cos I heard just about everything
That my heart needs to know
Track Name: Two Stars
Two stars that shine
On the darkest night
They wait for you and me

Two stars are we
Fighting gravity
Against our destiny

And if you must chase fire
Then I will chase fire too
Across the frozen miles
I’ll radiate to you

Historians
Of the universe
I’ll share my fate with you

For now I’ll wait
While these tiny days
Are thrown away too soon

You know you’re just like me
You know you’re just like me
You breathe the air I breathe
You dream the dreams I dream

One sunny day
I’ll just slip away
To leave my fate to you

Two stars are we
Locked in history
Across the centuries
Across the centuries

I’ll radiate to you
I’ll radiate to you
I’ll radiate to you
I’ll radiate to you
