Track Name: Time Machine (band version)
I wish I had taken a chance on you
I wish I'd been a little braver in love
I wish I was a better person, one like you
I wish I could say I lived everyday to the max
And made no mistakes
But I've left a trail of heartbreak everywhere I've been

I wish I had a time machine
I'd go back and fix all my wrongs
Wish I had a time machine
I'd be a little braver in love

I wish I had a time machine
I'd go back and fix all my wrongs
Wish I had a time machine
I'd be a little braver in love

I'd never let you down
I'd always be around
I'd always fight your corner
I wish I wasn't so afraid of love
I wish I had been a little smarter
I wish I had tried a little harder
I wish I had known what I wanted before it was too late

I wish I had a time machine
I'd go back and fix all my wrongs
Wish I had a time machine
I'd be a little braver in love

I wish I had a time machine
I'd go back and fix all my wrongs
I wish I had a time machine
I'd be a little braver in love
I wish I had a time machine
Track Name: 7 years (band version)
I think of you everytime I hear country music
I think of the night we had 7 years ago

You told me you were single but it turned out you had a wife at home
Oh and it turned out we couldn't be trusted to be left alone
I wonder did you write that love song about me
Or was it written for the woman that you wronged?
I guess we'll never know cos we will never ever talk about it
I don't know if we'll ever meet face to face again

I think of you everytime I hear country music
I think of the night we had 7 years ago

I've heard your band are doing really good right now
I've seen your photo on the cover of magazines
No one would believe me if I ever did tell them
Even I find it a little hard to believe

I think of you everytime I hear country music
I think of the night we had 7 years ago

I think of you everytime I hear country music
I think of the night we had 7 years ago
Track Name: My Broken Heart
My broken heart cries out your name
My broken heart searches for a way
To make you love me and make you stay
My broken heart will never change


My broken heart knows a thousand ways to break
My broken heart is familiar with heartache
My broken heart cries out for you
My broken heart belongs to you

All the roads that we have travelled
And all the times we have crossed paths
Life brought us together but we are just a lost cause
But my broken heart will not let you go


My broken heart knows a thousand ways to break
My broken heart is familiar with heartache
My broken heart cries out for you
My broken heart belongs to you

My broken heart belongs to you
My broken heart belongs to you

My broken heart whispers your name
My broken heart regrets being tamed
My broken heart cannot be changed
My broken heart is my only gift to you


My broken heart knows a thousand ways to break
My broken heart is familiar with heartache
My broken heart cries out for you
My broken heart belongs to you
Track Name: Stay Intouch
I know I am not your forever love
Not even close
You're still in love with her
I never stood a chance
Defeat was always staring me in the face
Everytime I looked you in your eyes

Stay intouch
Let's just be friends
My heart will harden in time
It'll learn to accept


Stay intouch
Let's just be friends
My heart will harden in time
It'll learn to accept

You are so beautiful I wish I could keep you
But I'm not the right one
You don't love me
The hardest heartache is what could have been
So let's not talk about it
Just go and be free


Stay intouch
Let's just be friends
My heart will harden in time
It'll learn to accept

Stay intouch
Let's just be friends
My heart will harden in time
It'll learn to accept

Stay intouch
Let's just be friends
My heart will harden in time
It'll learn to accept
Track Name: The best player in town
You know the game of love a little too well
You've played, you've played, and you've played
You bring heartache everywhere you go
You've played, you've played, and you've played

And I will always love you
I always have done
and I will always love you
The best player in town

And I will always love you
I always have done
and I will always love you
The best player in town

You like to pretend that you don't care
but you are soft at heart
You pick them up and throw them down again
just like collecting trophy hearts

And I will always love you
I always have done
and I will always love you
The best player in town

And I will always love you
I always have done
and I will always love you
The best player in town

Ooh ooh

And I will always love you
I always have done
and I will always love you
The best player in town

Track Name: Your Friend
You don't need to apologise
I can see it in your eyes
You don't need to say a single word
No words fit anyway

But you should I'll never love again
You should know I'll always be your friend
You should I'll never love again
But you should know I'll always be your friend
I'll always be your friend

All the old feelings bubble up to the surface
everytime we meet face to face
I need to tell you exactly how I feel
but I don't expect you to reply

You should I'll never love again
You should know I'll always be your friend
You should I'll never love again
But you should know I'll always be your friend

I'll always be your friend
I'll always be your friend
Track Name: Grace Under Fire
Looks like an angel but acts like the devil
Grace is a mood
could them blue eyes have seen more than they ever should?

Grace my angel why is life being cruel you
All the other children just torment you


Oh Grace under fire, Grace under fire, she is burning
Oh Grace under fire, Grace under fire, she is burning

Long blonde hair to hide that evil smile such look of innocence
but she's devil's child, oh she is devil's child

Oh Grace under fire, Grace under fire, she is burning
Oh Grace under fire, Grace under fire, she is burning

Grace sweet child I know you're endangered
but don't you think you should learn to love yourself
not hate yourself like you do?

Oh Grace under fire, Grace under fire, she is burning
oh Grace under fire, Grace under fire, she is burning
She is burning
Oh she is burning, burning, burning
Track Name: Feel that way featuring Keith Watson
As the sea crash against in the rocks
I focus in my thoughts
dreaming of my love
the love i have lost
imaginging I've got you in my arms
swearing I'll never let you go
when I open my eyes
I awake to see you in somebody else's arms


I don't ever want to feel that way again
I don't ever want to fall in love
I don't ever want to feel that hurt
I don't ever want to feel that way again


For my love was nothing but true
and my heart was posessed by you
but you tore my soul apart
so I drowned my sorrow in the deep blue sea

I don't ever want to feel that way again
I don't ever want to fall in love
I don't ever want to feel that hurt
I don't ever want to feel that way again

As the sea crash against the rocks
I feel it whisper my name
telling me what I already knew
I'm never gonna feel that way again
Track Name: Please
I feel your presence when you enter the room
and it excites me, oh yeah you excite me
yeah you excite me, I feel your heartbeat
faster and faster, I hear your breathing change
Is this desire? Is this desire?
Shower me in all your desire

I wanna touch you
I wanna kiss you
I wanna squeeze you
I wanna please you, oh please
I wanna touch you
I wanna kiss you
I wanna squeeze you
I wanna please you

Even if you dont want me just play along
just play along
In the morning everything changes
feelings sometimes fade away
You're left feeling all rejected but I want you
so I'll risk it, yeah I want you so I'll risk
Yeah I want you so I'll risk it

I wanna touch you
I wanna kiss you
I wanna squeeze you
I wanna please you, oh please
I wanna touch you
I wanna kiss you
I wanna squeeze you
I wanna please you, oh please
Oh please, you excite
oh please, you excite

Track Name: As Strange as Fiction
I thought that I could get through this
Thought that I could resist the temptation
Thought that I was strong enough to let it go
I said I wanted you to leave

It's as strange as fiction real life
Some would say stranger and crueler that times

So now I'm acting like a fool
Tempers high, and insults flying
Done all I promised not to do
And said some things I didn't mean to

It's as strange as fiction real life
Some would say stranger and crueler that times

So now I'm crying over you
Another thing I said I'd never do
I never missed you until you were gone
I always want what I cannot have

It's as strange as fiction real life
Some would say stranger and crueler that times
It's as strange as fiction real life
Some would say stranger and crueler that times
Track Name: The Last Love Song I Write
I've stood on a cliff with my arms outstretched
the sun on my face and the wind in my hair
and dreamt of you, I dreamt of you
One more step and freedom arrive
but it is one more step further from your side
I stand on the edge for you

Let this be the last love song I write
Let this be the love song of my life
Let the message finally reach your ears
Let you feel loved

The girl who sang those beautiful beautiful love songs
quaked with fear when love looked her in the eyes
I know it's wrong to run from what you want the most
but I must hide

Let this be the last love song I write
Let this be the love song of my life
Let the message finally reach your ears
Let you feel loved

Let this be the last love song I write
Let this be the love song of my life
Let the message finally reach your ears
Let you feel loved
Track Name: In A Cement Heaven
You live like angel in a cement heaven
trying to find back home
Caught in cage unable to fly
you might find you are trying too hard

And all you ever wanted was someone to love
you never asked anybody to judge you
just wanted somebody to love you
just needed somebody to love you
somebody to hold these cold cold nights
yeah somebody to love these cold cold nights

Leave your past and start anew
Set flight and free
I know exactly how you feel
I feel the same
I feel the same
And all you ever wanted was someone to love you
you never asked anybody to judge you

just wanted somebody to love you
just needed somebody to love you
somebody to hold these cold cold nights
somebody to love these cold cold nights
that's all you ever wanted
that's all I've ever wanted
just somebody to love
yeah yeah somebody to love love love these cold cold nights
oh yeah these cold cold nights
Track Name: Guitar Playing Gangster Queen
The first time I heard you, you could barely pick a string
Now look at you, you're in a league of your own
you've overtaken me
you're a guitar playing gangster queen
you are all I'd ever need but you are hell bent on destroying me

You once said you weren't the enemy
but now look at you crucifying me
if you wanted me dead I'd be dead years ago
you didn't stab me in the back because
you wanted to look me in eyes as I bleed

Play that guitar the way you played me
Play that guitar the way you played me
You play that guitar the way you played my heart
Play that guitar the way you played me

goodness gracious me is that a bomb I hear?
tick tocking tick tick tick tick tick tocking
false alarm it was my heart blowing up
I give up I hold my hands up
I surrender please don't shoot
Have mercy if you can, I'd never pull the trigger on you
I really love, I really love you, yeah I love you
Have mercy if you can
I'd never pull the trigger on you the way you do to me

Play my heart the way you play that guitar
You play guitar the way you play my heart
You play guitar the way you played my heart
You play guitar the way you played my heart
You play guitar the way you played me
You play guitar the way you played my heart

Track Name: Ice Queen
Didn't come here looking for love
Didn't come here searching for lust
Oh take the hint, oh take the hint
Your conversation is boring me to tears

No great adventures will be found here
Cos you're just not my type


Oh take that look right off your face
The one that says why can't you love me the way I love you?
Yeah take that look right off your face
The one that says why can't you love me back the way I love you?

Cos I'm a ice queen my heart is mean
Oh I'm a ice queen and I don't want you
Ice queen cos my heart is mean, oh I'm a ice queen and I don't want you

So what's your problem, so what's your problem
No means no
Don't declare love for people you don't even know
You'll be so sorry, you'll be sorry if you don't listen
No sweet words just sharp truths

So take that look right off your face
The one that says why can't you love me the way I love you?
Yeah take that look right off your face
The one that says why can't you love me back the way I love you?

Cos I'm a ice queen my heart is mean
Oh I'm a ice queen and I don't want you
Ice queen cos my heart is mean, Oh I'm a ice queen and I don't want you
ice queen cos my heart is mean
Oh I'm a ice queen and I don't want you

Take that look right off your face
The one that says why can't you love me the way I love you?
Yeah take that look right off your face
The one that says why can't you love me back the way I love you?

Track Name: The Player
All my friends say you're a player and I must be a fool
for standing by and loving you
When I know you're gonna break my heart that's what players do

And in the end all the sweet words fade into little lies
I see it in your eyes you're a player through and through


And if you're playing me don't let me know
Cos it will hurt too much
Oh if you're playing me don't let me know
Cos it will hurt too much


You're player and I'm fool
Once the hate is gone I'll forgive you
until the next time you let me down like you do
You'd think I'd learn by now but I'm just a fool
I Just can't stay angry at you even though you treat me like you do

And if you're playing me don't let me know
Cos it will hurt too much
Oh if you're playing me don't let me know
Cos it will hurt too much
oh if you are playing me don't let me know
if you are playing me don't let me know
don't let me know
don't let me know
don't let me know
Track Name: This Valentine's
It's feb 14th it's valentine's day
I wrote a card for you I never gave you
with all the words, all the words I couldn't say
All the happy couples in the street pass by me
invisibly I stand all on my own, all on my own

They all have big red hearts, chocolate and flowers
big red hearts, chocolate and flowers
but there's no you in sight

Oh it'll pass
Oh it'll pass
Yeah it'll pass soon enough
this valentine's without you

Brave the storm
tell the world, tell the world
I love you, I love you
Let the rain wash all the players out the way
Let the rain wash the plastic hearts away
I love you, I love you

It'll pass
It'll pass, soon enough
It'll pass this Valentine's without you
It'll pass soon
It'll pass soon
It'll pass
this valentine's without you
Track Name: Only You Will Do
I have been a fool, so unkind, and cruel
I have been open wide but always trying to hide
The truth is you made me feel things I never wanted to feel
Love is such a stranger, it hurts just to think
I don't want to give that much, it's such a risk
But you just look at me and suddenly I melt, I tremble
I don't want to be walking all alone
but I have made up my mind, sat on my thrown
I'll be the queen of all pain and things most unkind
if I don't know your love in my life

Cos I know only you will do
I will walk all alone if I can't have you
Cos I know only you will do
I will walk the world alone if I can't have you

Write it in the sand how sorry I am
so the waves can wash it away before you even see
Cos I'm so scared to let you know how I really feel
it petrifies me

No-one in this world makes me feel the way you do
You make me feel so happy just looking at you
And when I see you hurt I feel it in my heart like a knife

Oh I know only you will do
If I can't have you I will walk this world alone
Oh I know only you will do
If it I can't be with you I will walk this world alone
Oh I shall walk this world all alone
If you don't want me
I will walk alone
I'll walk this world alone
I want to be alone
Track Name: The Goodbye
I only came to say goodbye
I didn't come to start no fights
There's a lot that's got to be left unsaid
And we both know it's better off unsaid

Please hold me in your arms and look me in the eyes
And give me the goodbye I'm craving
Please hold me in your arms and look me in the eyes
And give me the goodbye I'm craving
Give me the goodbye
Give me the goodbye
Give me the goodbye I'm craving

In this journey all we seem to do is hurt each other
It seems so cruel cos I wanna do is love you
But it is all so hard to show it sometimes
when theres so much chaos in our lives

Please hold me in your arms and look me in the eyes
And give me the goodbye I'm craving
Please hold me in your arms and look me in the eyes
And give me the goodbye I'm craving
Give me the goodbye
Give me the goodbye
bye I'm craving

only a fool would let you go but I'm a fool
you should know I tried to hold on as long as I could
but I know you're too good for me, oh too good for me

Please hold me in your arms, look me in the eyes
And give me the goodbye I'm craving
Please hold me in your arms, look me in the eyes
And give me the goodbye I'm craving
Give me my goodbye
Give me the goodbye I'm craving
Give me the goodbye
Give me the goodbye I'm craving
Please hold me in your arms and look me in the eyes
And give me the goodbye I'm craving
Please hold me in your arms and look me in the eyes
And give me the goodbye I'm craving
