Track Name: Barriers
Breaking down the barriers you built to keep my love out
You always think the grass is greener on the other side
Breaking down the barriers you built to keep my love out
Reaching out to touch you cos I need you right now

Breaking down the barriers you built to keep my love out
Breaking down the barriers you built
Breaking down the barriers you built to keep my love out
I'm trying to reach you

The grass isn't always greener on the other side
I know that for a fact
You've got a good life with me
You've got a good life can't you see

Breaking down the barriers you built to keep my love out
Breaking down the barriers you built to keep my love out
Breaking down the barriers you built to keep my love out
Breaking down the barriers

Breaking down the barriers you built to keep my love out
Breaking down the barriers you built to keep my love out
Breaking down the barriers you built to keep my love out
Track Name: Holding on
Baby I know I lost you years ago
But you cross my mind every day
Baby I know I lost you years ago
But I've never really let go

Baby I know we ain't spoken in years
But something tells me you feel the same
Never quite feeling content
You want the one thing you don't have

Baby I know I lost you years ago
But I've never really let you go
Baby I know I lost you years ago
But I've never really let you go

I'm holding on
Still holding on
I'm holding on
Still holding on

Baby I know I lost you years ago
But I don't want to ever really let you go
Won't let you go
Let you go
I won't let you go
I won't let you go
Track Name: The Dog House
Always in the dog house
In the dog house
Always in the dog house
In the dog house

I don't really know what to say
That's always been my problem
Always seem to put my foot in mouth
when it comes to you

I don't really know how to make it right
God knows that I've tried
Seems like I'm always in the dog house
Seems I'm always in the dog house
Yeah I'm always in the dog house
Yeah I'm always n the dog house

Don't matter what I do doesn't matter what I say
Treading on eggshells every time I see you
Your temperament is so fragile
I can't say a word without setting you off
And baby what am I meant to do
I can't resist trying to be with you
Everything I do just seems to annoy you

I'm in the dog house
In the dog house again
I'm in the dog house
In the dog house again
I'm in the dog house
the dog house


I'm in the dog house
In the dog house
Always in the dog house
In the dog house
Always in the dog house
In the dog house

Always in the dog house
In the dog house
Always in the dog house
In the dog house
Always in the dog house
In the dog house
Track Name: What She Don't Know
He underestimates her
He doesn't see
That she has got so many special qualities
He thinks she don't know
What he does when she is outta town
He goes sneaking around

What she don't know won't hurt her
What she don't know
What she don't know won't hurt her
What she don't know
What she don't know



Well it's easy to play the game
Everybody is a lover in their own special way
All I can say is that he must a fool
if he believes she don't know what he is up to her


What she don't know won't hurt her
What she don't know won't hurt her
What she don't know won't hurt her
What she don't know won't hurt her

But she knows
She has known for years
The jokes on him
Cos one day she'll disappear


What she don't know
What she don't know
What she don't know
Track Name: Dream Lover
I'm on the hunt for the perfect lover
No substitutions
You've got to make the grade
I'm on the hunt for that special one
I know that baby you tick all the boxes for me

Oh oh oh You're my dream lover
Oh oh oh You're my dream lover

Oh Oh Oh
Oh Oh Oh
Oh Oh Oh

I'm on the hunt for the perfect lover
Gotta give me the attention I crave
Baby I think you might just qualify
Baby I think you're my perfect guy

Oh oh oh You're my dream lover
Oh oh oh You're my dream lover
Oh oh oh You're my dream lover

Baby I'm on the hunt
Looking for you
You're my dream lover

Oh oh oh You're my dream lover
Oh oh oh You're my dream lover
Track Name: Glasgow Central
I've seen you around
At Glasgow Central
Glasgow Central
Waiting on your train
to where it is that you come from

And part of brain thinks you are trouble
You are trouble
But part of me don't care if you are
Care if you are

I've seen you at Glasgow Central
Glasgow Central
I was waiting for my train back to Dumfries
Back to Dumfries
All I can say is I wish I knew your name


But I saw you at Glasgow Central
Glasgow Central
I saw you at Glasgow Central
Glasgow Central
I saw you at Glasgow Central
Glasgow Central
I saw you at Glasgow Central
Glasgow Central


I saw you at Glasgow Central
Glasgow Central
I was feeling blue
I've got the weight of the world on my shoulders
Something about you was kinda familiar to me
I think I was once like you but now I'm different

And I saw you at Glasgow Central
Glasgow Central
I saw you at Glasgow Central
Glasgow Central
I saw you at Glasgow Central
Glasgow Central
I saw you at Glasgow Central




If you want me it's that easy
If you want me come and get me
I'll be at Glasgow Central
Glasgow Central
Track Name: Love Sick
I must be crazy for loving you
Call me a doctor
Cos all I think about is you
I'm trapped in my own head
With only dreams of you
Constantly battling to give up on you
I'm feeling love sick and you are the cure

I feel love sick I need you
I feel love sick and you are the cure
I feel love sick I need you
I feel love sick and you are the cure

Take my temperature I'm burning up
I try putting a brave face on but I'm
not that tough

I feel love sick I need you
I feel love sick and you are the cure
I feel love sick I need you
I feel love sick and you are the cure

If I can't have you I'll need anti-depressants
To help me through giving up on you

I feel love sick I need you
I feel love sick and you are the cure
I feel love sick I need you
I feel love sick and you are the cure
Track Name: Broke You
You may be beautiful but you don't play by the rules
You may be wonderful but you can also be so cruel
Yeah so I exaggerate it's something I do
But when it comes to you I always tell the truth

I know that I let you down and I'm sorry
I know that I let you down and I'm sorry

I had to break all the promises I made to you
I had to break all the promises I made to you

Break them
Break them
Yeah I broke your heart too
Break them
Break them
And yeah I broke your heart too

Feel my heart racing
It's racing for you
We've come so far considering what we've been through

I know that I let you down and I'm sorry
I know that I let you down and I'm sorry

I had to break every promise that I made to you
I had to break every promise that I made to you
I had to break
I had to break
I had to beak them and you
I had to break
I had to break
I had to break them and you
Yeah I think I broke you
Track Name: Ground Rules
Out of my depth is how I feel
The look you gave me almost threw me from my seat
I know you've been around
But I also know that experience can count
experience can count

It won't be a big love affair
Big love affair
Just want you for a night
Then I'll disappear

It won't be a big love affair
Big love affair
Just want you for a night
Then I'll disappear

Human relationships are so complex
I don't have the intention to stick around
and make it work
It's no slight on you
Just wanna make the ground rules clear

It won't be a big love affair
Big love affair
Just want you for a night
Then I'll disappear

It won't be a big love affair
Big love affair
Just want you for a night
Then I'll disappear

It won't be a big love affair
Big love affair
Just want you for night
Then I'll disappear
Then I'll disappear
Track Name: A Difficult Time
She almost reached 90
It would have been great if she seen her next birthday
Not many people last til that age
I guess she was lucky
but I miss her every day

Oh oh oh the cycle repeats
Take a new partner and get on your feet
You've just been handed a get out of jail free card
So keep it close
keep it close to your heart

Yeah I know it's a difficult time
but there never is a better time to get on with your life
Yeah I know it's a difficult time
but there never is a better time to get on with your life

Ooh ooh
Ooh Ooh


So write your bucket list
And strike them all off
Make sure you have no regrets
No regrets at all
Look to the future but cherish the past
Nothing in this life is built to last

Oh oh oh the cycle repeats
Take a new partner and get on your feet
You've just been handed a get out of jail free card
So keep it close
keep it close to your heart

Yeah I know it's a difficult time
but there never is a better time to get on with your life
Yeah I know it's a difficult time
but there never is a better time to get on with your life

To get on with your life
Yeah I know it's a difficult time
Yeah I know it's a difficult time
Yeah I know it's a difficult time
Track Name: Storm Frank
Crazy weather at this time year
Storm Frank is on his way
I heard the banks of the River Dee burst today
Flooding everywhere caused chaos and heartbreak
Miserable weather we've been having here
and it seems to be here to stay

we can make small talk if you want
We'll talk about the weather
we can make small talk if you want
We'll talk about the weather
We're facing a storm of own cos it's over
We're facing a storm of own cos it's over

There was powercuts and strong winds
The streets were empty and the sound of silence echoed in the air
There was silence where there shoulda been sweet nothings
But I guess neither one of us wants to fake it anymore



we can make small talk if you want
We'll talk about the weather
we can make small talk if you want
We'll talk about the weather
We're facing a storm of own cos it's over
We're facing a storm of own cos it's over

Cos it's over
Cos it's over
Track Name: Second Date
Last time I saw you you were catching a train
Your bag on your back and a smile on your face
You kissed on the cheek and whispered please stay intouch
But I was so foolish I just gave up

I often wish I had kept your number
I often wish that you lived a little nearer
I often wish that I had taken the time to stay intouch with you

Oh what I'd do for a second date with you
I never called cos I didn't think I deserved you
Oh what I'd do for a second date with you
I never called cos I didn't think I deserved you

I found you on facebook but lacked the courage to add you
I've heard rumours your seeing someone new in town
I hope life is treating you well, hope you are fine
I would have liked to have known you better though


I often wish I had kept your number
I often wish that you lived a little nearer
I often wish that I had taken the time to stay intouch with you

Oh what I'd do for a second date with you
I never called cos I didn't think I deserved you
Oh what I'd do for a second date with you
I never called cos I didn't think I deserved you

Oh what I'd do for a second date with you
I never called cos I didn't think I deserved you
Oh what I'd do for a second date with you
Track Name: In Another Life
In another life I would be your lover if not your wife
You wouldn't take another cos you'd know that
I'm too crazy to mess around with like that

In another life I would be your wife
In another life you would be mine
In another life I would be your wife
In another life you would be mine

In another life I would win the lottery
In another life I'd buy you the sports
car of your dreams
And we'd go travelling round the world
And see all the wonders of the world

In another life I would be your wife
In another life you would be mine
In another life I would be your wife
In another life you would be mine

In another life our clothes would be in fashion
In another life my records would sell in millions
In another life all my jewellery would be the real thing
In another life it would be fantastic
In another life you would be my everything
And I would be everything as well

In another life I would be your wife
In another life you would be mine
In another life I would be your wife
In another life you would be mine

In another life I would be your wife
In another life you would be mine
In another life I would be your wife
In another life you would be mine
