Track Name: One Last Kiss
You're always checking your phone but you think that I haven't noticed
Always texting her all night long
You've forgotten I need attention and a little affection
You've grown cold and distant
There ain't no turning back
Oh I tried resisting but now I know I gotta leave

Give me one last kiss
A final taste of bliss
Before I say goodbye
Oh make this our last kiss
A final taste of bliss
Before I say goodbye
So give me one last kiss
A final taste of bliss
Before I say goodbye

I made up my mind
I'm not coming back this time
Because I can't forget and forgive
So take my number out your phone
Please don't try to find me
I'm starting over all alone
It's what I need right now
It's the best thing for the both of us
Yeah it's what I need

Give me one last kiss
A final taste of bliss
Before I say goodbye
Oh make this our last kiss
A final taste of bliss
Before I say goodbye
So give me one last kiss
A final taste of bliss
Before I say goodbye
Track Name: In Love with Someone else
I did love you but I'm in love with someone else
Yeah I know what I am throwing away
I tried to warn you I wasn't ready to love again
But you pursued me so Persistently  that I believed it was meant to be
I believed it was meant to be

But my heart is breaking cos I'm love with someone else
The harder I try to hide it the deeper it stang me
I'm in love with someone else

Never meant to break your heart
The harder I tried the deeper it ached
I knew it would end like this
That is why I tried not to get involved

My heart is breaking cos I'm love with someone else
The harder I try to hide it the deeper it stang me
I'm in love with someone else
My heart is breaking
Cos I'm in love with someone else
The harder I try to hide it the deeper it stang me
I'm in love with someone else
Yeah my heart is breaking
Cos I'm in love with someone else
The harder I try to hide it the deeper it stang me
I'm in love with someone else
I'm in love with someone else
Track Name: Not Meant to be
I think I loved you a little too much
I just wanted you I didn't think of the cost
It was deeper than I could afford
Just trying to hold on to you was tough
With every step I knew I was losing you
With every breath the distance between us grew

Sometimes it's just not meant to be
And one of these things is you and me
Sometimes it's just not meant to be
And one of these things is you and me

So catch your breath don't cry it's for the best
You've got a whole life to find the right one
I know you deserve to be loved truly
And I could never give you everything you need
There would always be a missing piece
I could never make you complete


Sometimes it's just not meant to be
And one of these things is you and me
Sometimes it's just not meant to be
And one of these things is you and me
Sometimes it's just not meant to be
And one of these things is you and me
Sometimes it's just not meant to be
And one of these things is you and me
Oh it's not meant to be
Oh it's not meant to be
Oh it's not meant to be
You and me
You and me
Track Name: My Eyes
I'd never known anything like this
I felt so touched
Like finally I felt
And I know you don't know me but I feel some kinda affinity

When you looked into my eyes I felt a spark
When you looked into my eyes I felt a spark
Oh when you looked into my eyes I could feel a spark


There ain't anything I wouldn't do for you
and I would crawl on glass for you
Walk on hot coals too
Whatever I have to do

When I looked into your eyes I felt a spark
like it was electrifying
I felt a spark when you looked into my eyes I I fell for you
Oh Oh I I fell for you
I I fell for you
I I fell for you
When you looked into my eyes I knew that you were the right one for me
Oh when you looked into my eyes I knew
Track Name: Up to You
You told me that I wasn't what you expected on our first date
I didn't know whether to be flattered or hurt
Oh the years have changed us both but deep down we still feel the same
Still madly in love
Still madly in love
I did try to make an effort to see you but it never was the right time
You were always with someone else

I don't know what to say
I don't know what to do
My heart is telling me to hold on to you and never let you go
But it's not my decision it is up to you
It's not my decision it is up to you
What you gonna do?
What you gonna do?
What you gonna do?

I know what you are thinking it couldn't really work
At times I've told myself that as well
It's a matter of what you want
And that is all I need to know if you want me back
Never mind the gossip
Never mind the past
Never mind what anyone else thinks
It's just what you want is that I wanna know?
If you feel the same
If you were honest with yourself we both belong together

I don't know what to say
I don't know what to do
My heart is telling me to hold on to you and never let you go
But it's not my decision it is up to you
it is up to you
What you gonna do?
What you gonna do?
What you gonna do?
What you gonna do?
Track Name: Stand by You
I guess my invitation got lost in the post
You wouldn't go without saying goodbye
I've told myself so many lies I don't know what the truth is any more
oh will you tell me again what am I missing?
Was there something in our passionate kissing that
should have warned me you are playing a game
Just playing with my heart
Just playing with my heart

I still need you
I still want you
I'll stand by you
I'll stand by you
I still need you
I still want you
I'll stand by you
I'll stand by you

I guess I shoulda been a little more cautious
I guess I shoulda seen this one coming
I guess I shoulda braced myself for the impact
I guess I shoulda been so hooked on you
I guess I shoulda known what I was getting myself into

I still need you
I still want you
I'll stand by you
I'll stand by you
I still need you
I still want you
I'll stand by you
I'll stand by you

I'll stand by you
I'll stand by you
I'll stand by you
I'll stand by you

I still need you
I still want you
I'll stand by you
I'll stand by you
I still need you
I still want you
I'll stand by you
I'll stand by you
Track Name: My Heart is Breaking
Just like you predicted I made the same old mistakes that I always make
I took you for granted and I didn't give you enough reasons to stay
but if it's any consolation my heart is breaking

My heart is breaking
My heart is breaking just like yours
My heart is breaking
My heart is breaking just like yours

I guess that was our last embrace
What a way to make an impression
You know I love you but I just can't help myself

My heart is breaking
My heart is breaking just like yours
My heart is breaking
My heart is breaking just like yours

My heart is breaking
My heart is breaking just like yours
Just like yours
Track Name: Ego
You spend so long looking at your reflection it is clear you're in love, in love with yourself
Your number one priority is you at all times
You let me know you are the best thing to happen to me and I oughtta be grateful for what I receive

Yes I did love you but you were too busy loving yourself
There was no room for me in your life
Yes I did love you but you were too busy loving yourself
There was no room for me in your life


Living with you never was easy
You had to be right even when you were wrong
You always overlooked my point of view

Yes I did love you but you were too busy loving yourself
There was no room for me in your life
Yes I did love you but you were too busy loving yourself
There was no room for me in your life

You've got such an ego
You've got such an ego
You've got such an ego
You've got such an ego


Yes I did love you but you were too busy loving yourself
There was no room for me in your life
Yes I did love you but you were too busy loving yourself
There was no room for me in your life
Track Name: Bitterest Pill to Swallow
It was the sweetest ecstasy loving you
You filled my heart with joy and love
The only sorrow was having to say goodbye so soon
And I will love you until my last breath
This love will never change


Oh oh it's the bitterest pill to swallow to have to let you go
Oh yeah it's the bitterest pill to swallow to lose you so soon
Oh oh the bitterest pill to swallow to have to say goodbye

All that is left is old photographs and faded letters
Postcards from far away places
But I will remember you always in my heart
And this love will last forever
This love will never change
Oh to be still under your spell completely
I will love you til my last breath
This love will last forever


Oh oh it's the bitterest pill to swallow to have to let you go
Oh yeah it's the bitterest pill to swallow to lose you so soon
Oh oh the bitterest pill to swallow to have to say goodbye
Track Name: Thank-you but no thanks
Thank-you for your correspondence that I didn't ask for yet I received
You don't seem to have done much with your life
so why do think you are qualified to advise me
My career choices are entirely my decision
And frankly none of this is your business

Thank-you but no thanks I don't want your opinion
It doesn't mean anything to me
Thank-you but no thanks keep your opinions to yourself
Cos you are the only one that cares about them

You must be crazy if you think I'll quit just cos you want me to
If I had listened to bad advice I would have done nothing with my life
Then I would be walking in your shoes
In your shoes


Thank-you but no thanks I don't want your opinion
It doesn't mean anything to me
Thank-you but no thanks keep your opinions to yourself
Cos you are the only one that cares about them


Thank-you but no thanks I don't want your opinion
It doesn't mean anything to me
Thank-you but no thanks keep your opinions to yourself
Cos you are the only one that cares about them


Thank-you but no thanks I don't want your opinion
It doesn't mean anything to me
Track Name: The Sweetest Mistake
I was contemplating the meaning of this life
I was just scraping by
I wasn't looking for what you offered me
But I couldn't decline
You made me feel like I was reborn
You made me feel so alive
For the first time in my life I'm content with my life

You are the sweetest mistake
You are the prettiest sight
You are my favourite addiction
You are the love of my life

People gossip but it doesn't matter
I know where I stand with you
So let them do their worst if they want to
Words can't wound us if we stay together
As long as I have you I'm okay I can face anything
As long as I have you

You are the sweetest mistake
You are the prettiest sight
You are my favourite addiction
You are the love of my life

Together we are untouchable
So take my hand and hold it tight
I know I've found my perfect match
All I need is your love in my life
All I need is your love in my life
Love is all I need

You are the sweetest mistake
You are the prettiest sight
You are my favourite addiction
You are the love of my life

You are the sweetest mistake
You are the prettiest sight
You are my favourite addiction
You are the love of my life
