Track Name: I Cannot Begin
counting down to never launch
forever staring at the sky
but if my thoughts could learn to talk
you’d hear them saying their goodbyes

i chew my words everyday
i bite my lip and never say
i walk away from everything
afraid of nothing, never leave here

ooooh, ooooh

losing out for all I’ve done
can’t wipe the footprint from my face
but if my hands could be unbound
you’d see a riot taking place

i lose my nerve everyday
relax my fist and walk away
of all the things that I’ve become
afraid of nothing, never leave

ooooh jesus christ I can’t begin
afraid to lose, afraid to win
oh jesus christ I cannot begin...

i lose my nerve everyday
relax my fist and walk away
of all the things that I’ve become
afraid of nothing, never leave

oooh jesus christ I can’t begin
afraid to lose, afraid to win
oh jesus christ I cannot begin...
Track Name: Move You
all those words and you’re still nowhere
all that work and it’s never fair
and it’s everyone else’s fault but your own

all those dreams and you’re still asleep
all the neighbours have left your street
when will you know the experience is over?

what does it take just to get you awake?
does it move you?
what does it take just to get up and wake?
does it move you?

another drink just to feel alive
another drink just to kill your time
watch the tv tranquilize all you wanted

what does it take just to get up and wake?
does it move you?
what does it take just to get up and wake?
does it move you?

another song just to take you back
another smoke ‘cause you can’t relax
a front door that you won’t unlatch
all the time that you can’t have back
and it’s nobody else’s fault that you’re stranded
that you’re stranded...

what does it take just to get you awake?
does it move you?
poet encaged, watch the fool on the stage
does it move you?
poet encaged watch the fool on the stage does it move you?
all for the sake of the effort it takes to move you?
Track Name: From Hackman's Gate
from hackmans gate to mustow green
there’s nothing else between

i don’t see californian skies
but they open up for pukka pies
in the nearest town that makes me sad
makes me glad
I’m miles away

i don’t feel argentinian heat
or taste it in a can of corned beef
the silver birch is looking sad
dreaming of japan
what might have been

from hackmans gate to mustow green
there’s nothing else between
i show you fields, you show me dreams
where over in l.a. they dance the night away

another glass of cape town wine
the village clock is keeping time
france is just an hour away
or sail today
for amsterdam

you’re painting on your london smile
or living out your new york lie
i’m looking at a passing cloud
that never looks down
never turns ‘round
for anyone

europe gives a midnight sigh
they never smell the minutes die
stretching a political map
another thumbtack
that can’t be seen

from hackmans gate to mustow green
there’s nothing else between
i show you fields, you show me dreams
where over in l.a. they dance the night away
over in l.a. they dance the night away
Track Name: Feeling
gotta’ feelin’ it’s over
and I feel it tonight
if I came back I’d tell you

that we’d have to dig down pretty deep
and it’s time to put our love to sleep

gotta’ feelin’ we’re older
and I feel it inside
if you came back I’d tell you

that we couldn’t change a thousand years
...and we find we’ve run
and we couldn’t sail upon these tears
out of all of our time...

gotta’ feelin’
gotta’ feelin’
as we lay down tonight
that we’ve know for a long time

that we’d have to dig down pretty deep
...and we find we’ve run
and it’s time to put our love to sleep
out of time...
Track Name: Casual Sex
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh.

there’s nothing wrong with your heart beating
there’s nothing wrong with your head, not one thing
there’s nothing wrong with your hot reaction

hold it together, keep it forever in our hearts

some casual sex with the one I love
ain’t never gonna’ be what you deserve
but while your squeezing me in your diary

hold it together, keep it forever in our hearts

why won’t you come and take these blues away?
ive been addicted to your sex for days
some space and time with you is all I need
some casual sex with you is calling me

there’s nothing wrong in my arms, nothing
there’s nothing wrong with tonight, tonight, tonight
there’s nothing wrong with the street that’s listening

hold it together, keep it forever in our hearts

why won’t you come and take these blues away?
i’ve been addicted to your sex for days
some space and time with you is all I need
some casual sex with you is calling me
...calling me
...calling me
so while your squeezing me in your diary

hold it together, keep it forever in our hearts
hold it together, keep it forever in our hearts

ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh.
Track Name: Is It A Dream Steve?
is it a dream Steve?
when she’s singing in your ears
you walk through the fields Steve
her presence always near

here is the scene Steve
as the light breaks through the trees
she’s making it feel, Steve
like a music video or...

...dream, Steve, is it a dream?
no one before ever see what I mean
thought I was crazy till I found you felt like I still do

hands on the keys Steve
these moments feel like years
you’re lost underneath Steve
when she simply breathes

a word in your ear Steve
do you hear the same as me?
cassette in your jeans Steve
your headphones plugged into another...

...dream, Steve, is it a dream?
no one before ever see what I mean
thought I was crazy till I found you felt like I still do

it’s summer in this nameless seasons rise
a prayer or a stream
you see what she sees
her deserts and her ice
i think you’ll find it makes no perfect sense

...dream, Steve, is it a dream?
no one before ever see what I mean
thought I was crazy till I found you felt like I still do

is it a dream, Steve?
no one before ever see what I mean
thought I was crazy till I found you felt like I still do
Track Name: Jackie Let Go
you can build your empires high
catch the laughter in the sky
better get it all while you can

with your dizzy party eyes
kiss the boys and make them fight
breaking hearts while they still will show

ooooh, jackie let go
i know what you know
ooooh jackie let go
winning is all that you know

back to bed when you’re inside
pull the wool over his eyes
is he dreaming a dream of you?

then a call comes from the club
make a young man feel so tough
but it’s never much more and you know

ooooh, jackie let go
i know what you know
ooooh jackie let go
winning is all that you know

and as you steal a kiss by the cigarette machine
your night has been ruined by a pack of 16
and you find out there’s no change
and all you have are moments of economy drinks
it’s only when you’re older that you'll stop and think
of the good times you never had

ooooh, jackie let go
i know what you know
ooooh jackie let go
winning is all that you know

it’s over I think that you know
Track Name: Dirty Eyes
you and me alone by the sea
you and me alone
you and me a walk in the park
making the day our own

so please don’t find me when I’m lost in you
and your dirty eyes
please don’t take me, even wake me up from this
dirty mind

you and me alone in the house
you and me we moan
you and me tied to a wish
making the love our own

so please don’t find me when I’m lost in you
and your dirty eyes
please don’t take me, even wake me up from this
dirty mind

you have me lost ‘till I’m found
i have you alone
you and me the world in our eyes
taking the road unknown

so please don’t find me when I’m lost in you
and your dirty eyes
please don’t take me, even wake me up from this dirty mind ooooh..... ooooh.....
Track Name: Odd One Out
you’ve been tired for days now
from your silly ways
how they’re bringing you down
you’ve been hiding in circles
a square peg in round walls will always stand out

with friends on a night time
give in to the good times
until you find sleep
reality scares you
all those nightmares you can’t live without

‘though you all look the same there can be no doubt
you’re the odd one out
‘though we all seem the same there can be no doubt
you’re the odd one out…

your days never brighten
too dark to enlighten
you’re starting to fade
beat yourself up to schedule
you lose your perspective then cry at your fate

‘though you all look the same there can be no doubt
you’re the odd one out
‘though we all seem the same there can be no doubt
you’re the odd one out…

you’re too tired to be frustrated
better open those eyes in your head
it’s a curse of your own making
better be your own friend or your own end.

‘though you all look the same there can be no doubt
you’re the odd one out
though you all look the same…
though you all look the same….
You’re forgetting your name!
there can be no doubt you’re the odd one out
Track Name: This Summer
do do do do do do do do do!
do do do do do do do do do!
do do do do do do do do do!

you’re looking for a reason
you’re looking for your head
you’re looking for a chance to start again

you’re searching for the meaning
you’re searching in your past
you’re searching for the legends to your map

this summer you won’t just be on your holiday
if you don’t let go
this summer you won’t just be on your own again
leave all you have and run

you’re standing at a shoreline
you never really had
you’re looking at horizons for a plan

you’re standing at an airport
a suitcase and a tan
you’re looking at the answers in your hand

this summer you won’t just be on your holiday
if you don’t let go
this summer you won’t just be on your own again
leave all you have and run
leave all you have and run

this summer you won’t just be on your holiday
if you don’t let go
this summer you won’t just be on your own again
leave all you have and run
leave all you have and run
leave all you have behind
Track Name: Sleepwalking
lent your eyes to a mad man’s stare
share your heart but you’re not even there
and you’re leaning on the charm of a gun
and it’s too late when you’re what you’ve become
and it’s easy to say you’ve nothing to lose
sleepwalking in a dead man’s shoes

calculate with a head full of god
and tell yourself we’re where we belong
and you even up the score ‘till it’s odd
and there’s only rage where there used to be love
but if you hold a grudge it’s you it takes hold
sleepwalking in a dead man’s soles
is how you fold
