Track Name: Time Out
Please slow down you're trying too hard
Pushing me too far
Don't rush into love cos I'm not ready for that

So damn beautiful but so messed up
You're heading to be hurt

I'm not sure how strong I am
I'm not sure how much more I can take
I'm not sure how strong I am
I'm not sure how much more I can take

Please hold on, pause for moment take some time out to think
Please hold on, pause for moment take some time out to think

So complicated there is a lot to figure out
Stop pushing for more
take some time out to find out what you want
if it is me for sure

I'm not sure how strong I am
I'm not sure how much more I can take
I'm not sure how strong I am
I'm not sure how much more I can take

Please hold on, pause for moment take some time out to think
Please hold on, pause for moment take some time out to think

Take some time out, to figure it all out
Take some time out, to be sure
Track Name: A Diamond Behind the Dirt
I could tell by your eyes that you're down on your luck
trying to keep up with the world around you
but it is getting too hard to fake a smile
it is getting too hard to even try

*chorus
And so much beauty that never gets noticed
and so much sparkle that never gets seen
In this world of greyness it is a shame nobody sees it
there is a diamond behind the dirt
there is a diamond behind the dirt

And I I I wish you happiness
And I I I wish you peace
Yeah I wish they could see all your beauty
I wish they could see there is a diamond behind the dirt
there is a diamond behind the dirt


you've stood on the edge and waited on a sign that everything would be alright
if you believed you had to strong
I know how it feels and I know it hurts

*chorus

there is a diamond behind the dirt
Track Name: Temporarily Blinded
Tell me this is it
Tell me this is for keeps
Tell me that finally I've got it right and I'm not, I'm not

*chorus
Temporarily blinded, desperately seeking love
Temporarily blinded, desperately seeking love
oh Temporarily blinded, desperately seeking love from you,
from you

Hold me, hold me together
show me this is forever
love me, your love is all ask for,
ask for

*chorus
Temporarily blinded, desperately seeking love
Temporarily blinded, desperately seeking love
oh Temporarily blinded, desperately seeking love from you,
from you
Track Name: All I've Got to Give
Your demands of me are too high
The stress I can longer hide
I'm sorry but I won't be back this time

Cos I gave you all I've got to give
there is nothing left to give you anymore
oh, I gave you all I've got to give
but it is still not enough for you

The pain you inflict is too cruel
You're tearing me to shreds
with every word you say

And I gave you all I've got to give
there is nothing left to give you anymore
oh, I gave you all I've got to give
but it is still not enough for you

The anger in your eyes shines through
I know often speak about leaving you
but this time I'm really going to go

Cos I gave you all I've got to give
there is nothing left to give you anymore
Yeah I gave you all I've got to give
but it's never enough for you
Yeah I gave you I've got to give
there is nothing left to give you anymore
Oh, I have you all I've got to give
but it is still not enough for you

oh it is never enough, Oh never enough
it is never enough for you
Oh it is never enough, oh never enough for you its never enough for you
I gave you I got, I gave you I got, I gave you all I got to give
but it is never enough, never enough for you
Track Name: The Day We Stopped Talking
The day we stopped talking our love seemed to end
I would have forgiven if you had been honest then
instead of playing a game of deciet
if you've told me back then I might have forgiven

The day we stopped talking was the day our love died
The day we stopped when you told me those lies
The day we stopped talking was the day our love died
when I knew couldn't trust you


It's not what you did, it's the lies that you told
I wasn't strong enough to rise above
it broke my heart to find out that way
had my suspicion confirmed one day

The day we stopped talking was the day our love died
The day we stopped when you told me those lies
The day we stopped talking was the day our love died
when I knew couldn't trust you

There can be no love where there is no trust
No love no trust
and I don't love you, I dont love no more, no no no,
no no no

The day we stopped talking was the day our love died
The day we stopped when you told me those lies
The day we stopped talking was the day our love died
when I knew couldn't trust you
Track Name: The Problem
I can't seem to get anything right
Don't know answers to the questions the whole world is asking me over and over again
Answers I can't deliver
No one understands me
No one cares how I'm feeling deep down inside


I tried to let you know
I tried to let you see that
I think the problem might be me
I tried to let you know
I tried to let you see that
I think the problem might be me
The whole world can't be wrong, the whole world can't be wrong
I think the problem must be me

So send me some love to make me feel alive
Nobody else matters, just you and me
In a world full of emptiness let there be some truth
In this world full of emptiness please let there be some truth

I tried to let you know
I tried to let you see that
I think the problem might be me
I tried to let you know
I tried to let you see that
I think the problem might be me
The whole world can't be wrong, the whole world can't be wrong
I think the problem must be me, the problem must be me
the problem must be me,
oh it must be me
Track Name: Mountain
Everything seems so over complicated
And I don't anticipate any improvement soon
I've been trying, really trying but the harder I try
the more spectacularly I fail

Won't ya help me out
Won't ya please help me out
Won't ya help me out
Won't ya please help me out

two hundred miles from home and anything could go wrong
two thousand worries that I must overcome
A mountain of pressure that I must climb
ain't no guarantee I'll make it to the other side


Won't ya help me out
Won't ya please help me out
Won't ya help me out
Won't ya please help me out

Won't ya help me to other side
Won't ya help me climb this mountain


Won't ya help me out
Won't ya please help me out
Won't ya help me out
Won't ya please help me out

Won't ya help out, won't ya help me out now
won't ya help out, won't ya help me out
won't ya help out, won't ya help me out
Track Name: Pretentious
Did I have to have my heart broken before I began to live my life
I had to feel all that hurt before I finally felt alive

All the pretentious people trying to knock us down
they are simply jealous we must rise above
All the pretentious fools who try to bring us down
it's a life that they don't understand

And I have learned all the hard lessons I need inorder to survive
so now I intend to get out there and enjoy, enjoy my life

All the pretentious people trying to knock us down
they are simply jealous we must rise above
All the pretentious fools who try to bring us down
it's a life that they don't understand


I'd rather be hated for who I am then loved for what I am not
It's the simple things in this life we take forgranted day by day


All the pretentious people trying to knock us down
they are simply jealous we must rise above
All the pretentious fools who try to bring us down
it's a life that they don't understand
it's a life that they don't understand
Track Name: Love Spell
Cast your spell, hold me prisoner in the palm of your hand
don't set me free, do as you wish
Cast your spell on me

So say those words that must be said
And do what must be done to cast your spell on me
yeah say those words that must be said
And do what must be done to cast your spell on me

to keep prisoner to your charms
to keep me captive at your hands
cast your spell on me


your legacy is one of love tainted by your need for lust
breaking hearts and gently piecing them together again
until the cycle repeats but maybe I don't want to leave

So say those words that must be said
And do what must be done to cast your spell on me
Oh say those words that must be said
And do what must be done to cast your spell on me

to keep prisoner to your charms
to keep me captive at your hands
oh cast your spell on me

oh keep prisoner to your charms
oh keep me captive at your hands
oh cast your spell on me
Track Name: Chocolate and Red Wine
You were my older lover and promised me a house in country
and a life of luxury and I was flattered
so I belived your patter,I believed your lies
I believed, I believed, I believed in you

And you brought me chocolate and red wine everytime you played away
Yeah, you brought me chocolate and red wine
And no-one's ever brought me chocolate and red wine since
Oh no,no no, no-one's ever brought me chocolate and red wine since

Others have played but none were sweet as you were
For every sorry you said you brought a gift with you
I never really hated you
it's just after a while I got sick of the taste of chocolate and red wine

And you brought me chocolate and red wine everytime you played away
Yeah, you brought me chocolate and red wine
And no-one's ever brought me chocolate and red wine since
Oh no,no no, no-one's ever brought me chocolate and red wine since


Yeah, no-one's ever brought me chocolate and red wine since
Track Name: Dancing on the Tables
All the groovy people standing in crowd can't believe how she swings
Such a crazy cat like I've never seen
She is a real wild thing

*CHORUS
And She'll be dancing on the tables tonight
She'll be dancing on the tables tonight
Oh She'll be dancing on the tables tonight
She'll be dancing on the tables tonight

Mona Lisa don't approve her smile is slowly gone
All the people start to drop like flies but this lady carries on

*CHORUS


Cheer up Charlie it ain't that bad there is a party going on
come on down to see her, rock n' roll

*CHORUS x2
