Track Name: Pot Kettle Black
They’d known each other for a very long time
The thought had never even crossed their minds
Who on earth would’ve dreamt it

It was like the clouds had parted to may for the sun
The collided with a force of unbelievable love
100% addictive

They pushed each other just to see how far
But they were both going to lose
Burn out like the stars

Pot kettle black
Glass house stone thrower
I’ll match your every move
You’ll never get one over
He said bones break, stones stick
Words will always fail me
We’re a match made in hell
Take me any way you want me
Take me any way you want me
Take me any way you want me

She laughed so hard every head would turn
And drink more bear than the average man
And always be found upside down in a dustbin
He’d given every girl the run around
Tried and tested every vice he could find
And alway be found asleep on a door step

She’d had her fair share of being pushed around
He’s still paying for the damage that he’s done

Pot kettle black
Glass house stone thrower
I’ll match your every move
You’ll never get one over
He said bones break, stones stick
Words will always fail me
We’re a match made in hell
Take me any way you want me
Take me any way you want me
Take me any way you want me

Oh she said
Pot kettle black
Glass house stone thrower
I’ll match your every move
You’ll never get one over
He said bones break, stones stick
Words will always fail me
We’re a match made in hell
Take me any way you want me
Take me any way you want me
Take me any way you want me

La la la la la

Sail away, go on you know the way
Sail away, go on you know the way
Track Name: Eggshells
You'r running rings around and around me
Do you honestly think I don't know what you're up to
Oh, So, busy baby
Yeah your such a busy man
I'm needing attention but you don't even see me!

You come home, late at night
I can't ask why without a fight

Walking on eggshells
Around you
Can't seem to do or say
The right thing
All i want is to love you
All i want is to be loved
Walking on eggshells
Around you

Straight to sleep
Yeah your dead on your feet
As i lie here wide awake
Don't take this the wrong way baby
I think I might end up straying
What else can I do
You oh
You come home late at night
I can't ask why without a fight

Walking on eggshells
Around you
Can't seem to do or say
The right thing
All i want is to love you
All i want is to be loved
Walking on eggshells
Around you

Busy men, yeah busy men
Should know what they're
Busy doing

Cos i'm walking
Yeah i'm walking
Oh I'm walking
Yeah I'm walking

I'm walking away from you
For ever
Cos I'm walking on eggshells
Around you

Oooh... la la la
Track Name: Release
Isn’t it strange how when you try to blame the way you feel
On something else
But it won’t go away
It just keeps on coming again and again
Like a haunting
And you know
You must face it

You’re searching for the way to go
So many roads and you worry so
That it’s never going to change
Fighting fire with fire and screaming
And it’s always, the same old storey

So what are you going to do?

Release, let it go
Find a way to let it flow
Release, let it go
Find a way to let it flow

Isn’t it cool how if you take the time to look around
Inside of you
You can feel yourself rise
No need to run no need to hide
You’re open, surrender, flowing
I’m reading all the signs you leave
You don’t know all the things I see
And it’s never going to change
Fighting fire with fire and screaming
And it’s always the same old storey

So what are you going to do?

Release, let it go
Find a way to let it flow,
Release, let it go
Find a way to let it flow.
Let go, let go, oh find a way
To let it flow
Let go, let go, oh find a way
To let it flow.

Mmmmmmm
Track Name: Summer Kiss
Please don’t let me down gently
I would rather you tore me apart
Then you would see deep into my heart
Yeah I know what this is all about

Summer kiss
Suffer bliss
Is there any way
Away from this
I’ve got a million neon scars

Please don’t give me excuses
I would rather you told me the truth
So much easier to deal with
Do i really have to pull tooth

Summer kiss
Suffer bliss
Is there anyway
Away from this
I’ve got a million neon scars

Please do give yourself gladly
We can’t do any more time
You know I would love you
Believe
If you’d just sir
Come to mine.

Summer kiss
Suffer bliss
Is there anyway
Away from this
I’ve got a million neon scars

Oooh....
Track Name: All I Am
Oh I
Want you
To shout
It aloud
And i
Want you
To tell
The world

All I am
Is your dirty little secret
All I am
Is your dirtly little secret

Only you
Can turn
Pure gold
Into rain
Only you
Can bruise the sky
On a bright
Summers day
Only you
Make me
Turn the other way
Only fools
Rush in
A thousand years
And i'm still here

All I am
Is your dirty little secret
All I am
Is your dirtly little secret
And I hope some day
Someone will expose you
She will be
The only one who knows you



is you
Track Name: Quiet Company
The beginning sets the scene
And the end is just a dream
Maybe we can spend the inbetween
In quiet company
When the morning comes to soon
For the evening's jealous moon
Maybe we can spend the afternoon
In quiet company

I want to dance inside your heart
Why don't we let the music start
Take our time
Drink our wine
Getting older

From the moment of your birth
To the endings of the earth
You shouldn't have to try to prove your worth
Just hang it out for free
No jury judging us
Just you and me
In quiet company
Mmmm

I want to dance inside your heart
Why don't we let the music start
Take our time
Drink our wine
Getting older

We won't always be around
So don't let it get you down
Cos darling there is comfort to be found
In quiet company
Yeah baby there is comfort to be found
In quiet company

in quiet company
Track Name: Toothpaste & Whisky
Toothpaste and Whisky
Better take it with me
Drink it anyway
That I feel like
Anyway you see me
Looking at you that way
Then you surely know
It's time for us to play

Tie and tease
Do what you please
But don't come knocking on my door
I don't have the time
No love in mind
I'm just crying out for more.

Your place is easy
Easy to be leaving
That way I can hold
Onto the controls
Hungry for some sweeties
Have my cake and eat it
Then you surely know
it's time for me to go

Tie and tease
Do what you please
But don't come knocking on my door
I don't have the time
No love in mind
I'm just crying out for more.

La la la la la la la
La la la la la la

This is my time by myself
Every time you see me please don't try to get close
Turn me on don't spin me around
I'll only run a mile

I don't need you, I'm not with you
I don't love you more

Tie and tease
Do what you please
But don't come knocking on my door
I don't have the time
No love in mind
I'm just crying out for more.
Track Name: Taxi
I'm on my way home
The dawn chorus and me
I'm at the back of the bus
And i can barely see
There's a crazy old guy
He's sweating buckets of booze
And the tension is high
I think he's going to hit the roof

Counting down the minutes
While the whole world stares at me

Taxi
How i wish it could be
But I'll see the sun rise
On my liberty

Where would i be
Without my 7 and 3
I'm in soho now
I'm going to play at the Colony
There's nothing better taking little fellas out on the town
Getting home when your canned
Is a challenge when you're coming down

Counting down the minutes

Taxi
How i wish it could be
But I'll see the sun rise
On my liberty

When I see the sunrise
When i see the sun rise
Anyone seen my mates

4am
No money getting hungry
But by hook or by crook
I'm going to make it back you'll see

Taxi
How i wish it could be
But I'll see the sun rise
On my liberty
Track Name: 52 Card Pick Up
Isn't this what you wanted
After all this time
After all our playing and fooling
Around
Isn't this what you wanted
For me to want to make you mine
Fall in love with you for ever
Till the end of time

All I ask of you is not to play
52 Card pick up
With my heart
Jack Queen King or Ace of Spades
Split the deck and lets see what we get
No regrets

Well now that you've got it
Will you just throw it away
I'm scared you didn't want it anyway
My cards are on the table
And the ball is in your court
Play the hand if you're able
Or let me alone

All I ask of you is not to play
52 Card pick with my heart
Jack, Queen, King or Ace of Spades
Split the deck and lets see what we get
No regrets

Well I wish for you to know
Baby you've stolen the show
Nobody gonna make me feel
The way you do
No telling lies and don't be shy
It's time for the truth and don't let me down
And I pray that I aint no trophy for you to have found.

All I ask of you is not to play
52 Card pick with my heart
Jack, Queen, King or Ace of Spades
Split the deck and lets see what we get
No regrets
Track Name: Scorpion
Living with a Scopion
She don’t know her right from wrong
And you’d wonder who
Was the biggest one
But she don’t know
Her time is going to come someday

Pesky as a persistent fly
Dark as the alley on a drive by
Come out come out
Show yourself
Winters nearly here
I won’t do another year

I’ve got my steal cap boots
And the radios on
Better watch out now
You’re gonna get stood on
But every time I get close
She goes where no one knows
Nobody knows where my little devil goes.

Nail this puppy to the wall
Yeah she’s ready for war
With a deadly sting
and pincer thighs
if she gets me first
there’s a chance i’ll die

I’ve got my steal cap boots
And the radios on
Better watch out now
You’re gonna get stood on
But every time I get close
She goes where no one knows
Nobody knows where my little devil goes.

Where does she live
Way up high on dead man mountain
In some kind of a whole in the ground
And tell me what does she do
Smile or frown
I won’t let her steal my crown

I’ve got my steal cap boots
And the radios on
Better watch out now
You’re gonna get stood on
But every time I get close
She goes where no one knows
Nobody knows where my little devil goes.
Winter’s drawing near and I don’t wanna do another year
Track Name: Bonus Track - You and I with Yellowhammer
On a day like today
There's nothing better than a
Trip down, to the river
It's the morning after the night before
And I've felt worse
And i've definitely felt better
The sun is hot
And the breeze is cool
I'd miss you

You and I
It's the life that we demanded
You and I
We can't live it second handed
You and I
We keep it up and I feel better don't you
We keep it up and we're bound to make it through

I've ordered 2 pints
And a whisky chaser
Shall we sit outside
The fresh air will help us
I've got a sinking feeling
Cos i'm running on empty
I'll fill myself up
And nothing can stop me

You and I
It's the life that we demanded
You and I
We can't live it second handed
You and I
We keep it up and I feel better don't you
We keep it up and we're bound to make it through

On a day like today

Trip down, to the river

Track Name: Bonus Track - Summer Wine with Larry Love
Strawberries, cherries and an angel's kiss in spring
My summer wine is really made from all these things

I walked in town on silver spurs that jingled to
A song that I had only sang to just a few
She saw my silver spurs and said let's pass some time
And I will give to you summer wine

Ohh, summer wine

Strawberries, cherries and an angel's kiss in spring
My summer wine is really made from all these things
Take off your silver spurs and help me pass the time
And I will give to you summer wine
Ohh, summer wine

My eyes grew heavy and my lips they could not speak
I tried to get up but I couldn't find my feet
She reassured me with an unfamiliar line
And then she gave to me more summer wine
Ohh, summer wine

Strawberries, cherries and an angel's kiss in spring
My summer wine is really made from all these things
Take off your silver spurs and help me pass the time
And I will give to you summer wine
Mmm, summer wine

When I woke up the sun was shining in my eyes
My silver spurs were gone, my head felt twice its size
She took my silver spurs, a dollar and a dime
And left me cravin' for more summer wine
Ohh, summer wine

Strawberries, cherries and an angel's kiss in spring
My summer wine is really made from all these things
Take off your silver spurs and help me pass the time
And I will give to you summer wine
