Track Name: 3 Weeks
It’s obvious that I’ve hurt you
I’ve been let down before
I’ve cried all night before
And it’s obvious that I’ve cursed you
I can’t reclaim the pain
For I’m the one to blame

Well if you want my apologies
I lay them all before you
And if you want my sorries, please
I lay them all before you

‘Cos tomorrow
I’ll spend the night alone
Waiting by the phone
For I can’t sleep
And tomorrow
I’ll spend the night alone
Waiting by the phone
It’s been 3 weeks

It’s obvious that I’ve hurt you
You’re tearing me apart
You’re starting with my heart
And it’s obvious that I’ve cursed you
You’re driving me insane
I need you back again

Well if you want my apologies
I lay them all before you
And if you want my sorries, please
I lay them all before you

‘Cos tomorrow
I’ll spend the night alone
Waiting by the phone
For I can’t sleep
And tomorrow
I’ll spend the night alone
Waiting by the phone
It’s been 3 weeks

It’s obvious that I’ve hurt you
You’re tearing me apart
You’re starting with my heart
And it’s obvious that I’ve cursed you
I can’t reclaim the pain
For I’m the one to blame

Well if you want my apologies
I lay them all before you
And if you want my sorries, please
I lay them all before you

‘Cos tomorrow
I’ll spend the night alone
Waiting by the phone
For I can’t sleep
And tomorrow
I’ll spend the night alone
Waiting by the phone
It’s been 3 weeks

It’s obvious that I’ve hurt you
Well I’m suffering all the same
I’ve no-one else to blame
Track Name: Hearts
Hearts are only made for taking
The hole its left is bloody aching
I can’t hear a sound ‘cos my ears ring
My vision blurs so I can’t see a thing

Hearts are only made for breaking
Lessons learned through mistakes we’re making
Is it easier to stay than walk away
You’ll be on my mind either way

If this is love why do I feel the pain
Of a sane person going insane
Falling for you
Was the only thing I could do
This is love on a comedy-sized scale

Hearts are full drink them makes them hollow
It won’t be laughs and smiles tomorrow
It always ends this way don’t you think
Apologising for the food in the kitchen sink

If this is love why do I feel the pain
Of a sane person going insane
Falling for you
Was the only thing I could do
This is love on a comedy-sized scale

Hearts are beating, beating faster
I hope this feelings gonna last yer
It feels like a flood without the rain
Until we’re coming down again

If this is love why do I feel the pain
Of a sane person going insane
Falling for you
Was the only thing I could do
This is love on a comedy-sized scale
Track Name: Chronicles of a Functioning Alcoholic
I hear your voice as it rings inside my head
You’re a long time dead
For all you drink still this pain won’t go away
But it will someday

I said, you’re all straight laced
Just a pretty face, that’s not my taste
She said, you drink too much,
Smoke too much, you’re all fucked up
I said, don’t you know it babe
That’s how I behave, that’s how I stay sane
She said, you call this sane
You’re wrecked again, this is insane

I said, don’t throw me lines
It’s what I despise, my only compromise
She said, that’s the conscious mind
Love is blind, you’ll see in time
I said, how can I see
You’re right in front of me, blocking the TV
She said, don’t play the fool
It’s not clever or cool, I’m talking to you

I hear your voice as it rings inside my head
You’re a long time dead
For all you drink still this pain won’t go away
But it will someday

I said, you’re awake this time
Light hits my eyes, its only half past 5
She said, I’m off to the gym
You’ll be soaked in gin, before I begin
I said, I’ll leave the shorts until half past 4
But don’t forget yours

I said, for all of the fights and the sleepless nights
We’re doing alright
She said, more than alright
Like a pig in shite, as daddy would cite
I said, this was meant to be
You and me, a classic tragedy
She said, ever the pessimist
Must you persist, in taking no risks

I hear your voice as it rings inside my head
You’re a long time dead
For all you drink still this pain won’t go away
But it will someday
Track Name: Closed Chested
I’m sorry for all the things we said
I just see red
Hate self-pity, but it’s a feeling I can’t shake
It’s more gritty than heartache

You know I’m soft behind this façade
I just act hard
I even blame myself for my closed chest
It makes women lose their interest

Every emotion runs through my mind
Of what we’ve left behind
Tears of laughter and tears of joy
Tears for something we destroyed

Hindsight is a wonderful thing
But repeating is my thing
I can’t hate you even after it all
Always at your beck and call

Sorrows easy, its love that’s hard

If you don’t ask then I won’t tell
Always holding up well
I let you in show you I care
That’s when I’m beyond repair
Sometimes you’ve gotta let love go
That’s harder than ill show
But with love there’s no holds barred
That’s why loving is so hard
Track Name: Never Gonna Hail That Cab
I saw you just the other day
You know I’ve always something to say
It’s not that I’m insightful
I’ve just had a skinful at the bar

When I look you’re always turning away
A chance glance leads me to say
You look a little frightened
Its ok I’m here to save the day

I’ll hold your hand as we steal away
Running through crowds I promise I’ll stay
You squeeze a little tighter
I can feel the shock run through my arm

I can see you have that look in your eye
I hope it’s true and not just the wine
It’s a look I could die for
I could’ve died a hundred thousand times

We find a corner that no-one can see
The bars are full but it’s just you and me
Wrapped up in conversation
Of how this was always meant to be

Never, ever, ever gonna hail that cab…..

We sit and chat until the landlord calls time
We only talk of better times
Is this lust unrequited
I just can’t hide it any more

Never, ever, ever gonna hail that cab…..
Track Name: Beautiful Mind
You break me into pieces
Can’t understand your reasons
Cos we’re in love and you love me
It’s what you say and what I see

All the times that we’re together
I want to keep this moment forever
Put it in a place that time can’t touch

So tell me
What’s going on inside
That beautiful mind
Of yours


You say it’s time for us to part
The words you speak they break my heart
Each one strikes hard time something dies
Your crying eyes are my demise

All the times that we’re together
I want to keep this moment forever
Put it in a place that time can’t touch

So tell me
What’s going on inside
That beautiful mind
Of yours
Track Name: Shadow
I’m a shadow of my former self
I see plenty of fish left on the shelf
I know I’m no good for their health
Cos I’m a shadow of my former self

I lie awake as the dawn breaks the darkness
But in my mind there is no light to harness
It never goes the way I planned in my head
That’s why I lie alone in this bed

I’m a shadow of my former self
I see plenty of fish left on the shelf
I know I’m no good for their health
Cos I’m a shadow of my former self

Some would say you have a face for radio
More like a punch and Judy show
Cos you’re just a puppet on a string
No idea what the future will bring

I’m a shadow of my former self
I see plenty of fish left on the shelf
I know I’m no good for their health
Cos I’m a shadow of my former self

I see clearer as the fog rolls away
I know I’ll live to fight another day
Cos I’m a fighter but I gave up on you
Can you blame me when you gave up too

I’m a shadow of my former self
I see plenty of fish left on the shelf
I know I’m no good for their health
Cos I’m a shadow of my former self
Track Name: Waggers At 40
Some call her poppers lass
They only drug she doesn’t do is grass
Some call her doctor contraband
Plant food spilling out of every hand

It’s at a pub quiz she excels
Flexing all those dead brain cells
With a History degree
She thought the Magna Carta was 1923

So this is Waggers at 40
She won’t grow old with grace
So this is Waggers at 40
Lying in the garden off her face

I said she looked like a social retard
She said for me that’s no too hard
Then she plied me with phet
The only day in conference I never slept

So this is Waggers at 40
She won’t grow old with grace
So this is Waggers at 40
Lying in the garden off her face

She took me on a 90’s rave bus
Where the drink replaced the drugs
She doesn’t do that by halves
The whole wold has seen her tattooed arse

So this is Waggers at 40
She won’t grow old with grace
So this is Waggers at 40
Lying in the garden off her face

But what a great friend
Friends forever ‘til the end
Jesus, that’s so clichéd
I must be in shock she’s managed to reach this age

So this is Waggers at 40
She won’t grow old with grace
So this is Waggers at 40
Lying in the garden off her face
So this is Waggers at 40
She won’t grow old with grace
So this is Waggers at 40
Lying in the garden off her face
