Track Name: Tidal Wave
Can't believe that things have gone so wrong
All I want to do is forgive you and say I love you
but it is so much harder than you will ever know

Cos I can feel you being swept
drifting far away
How could I compete with her tidal wave?
She's so beautiful even if you chose me over her
how could I ever be sure you wouldn't be tempted?
She's so beautiful even if you do stay
how could I ever be sure you wouldn't be tempted again?

I hope you find peace in her love
I pray she is not as cold as I suspect she is
And if you survive her fury when she casts you aside
then maybe there's a chance for us then

Cos I can feel you being swept
drifting far away
How could I compete with her tidal wave?
She's so beautiful even if you chose me over her
how could I ever be sure you wouldn't be tempted?
She's so beautiful even if you do stay
how could I ever be sure you wouldn't be tempted again?

Let her carry you away in her tidal wave
Let her carry you away in her tidal wave
Let her carry you away in her tidal wave
Let her carry you away in her tidal wave
Tidal wave
Track Name: Kind Stranger
You're a shadow of your former self
Standing in the rain at the railway station
Was that a tear in your eye?
Or was it just the rain running down your face?
A lot of years have passed now
You're just a kind stranger now

I can honestly say
you're the lover I gave away
You're just a kind stranger now

I'm so sorry if I broke your heart
I'm so sorry I had to break your heart
I'm so sorry if I broke your heart
I'm so sorry I had to break your heart
I'm so sorry if I broke your heart
I'm so sorry I had to break your heart

You're a kind stranger
You're just a kind stranger
You're a kind stranger
You're just a kind stranger

I was only 18, and too afraid to fight for love
And I was in love with someone else
You always had such high expections of me
But you knew I'd break your heart and I did

I'm so sorry if I broke your heart
I'm so sorry I had to break your heart
I'm so sorry if I broke your heart
I'm so sorry I had to break your heart

You're a kind stranger
You're just a kind stranger
You're a kind stranger now
You're just a kind stranger
Oh kind stranger
yeah kind stranger
oh kind stranger
oh kind stranger
Kind stranger
Track Name: The Downfall of Humanity
All these years of evolution and still
the human race's egocentorism can't be cured
They could cure diseases but instead
they choose to start wars

And I'm not to blame
I'm not responsible for the downfall of humanity
And I'm not to blame
I'm not responsible for the downfall of humanity
The human race was always flawed
Too self obssessed to see the score
The human race was always flawed
Too self obssessed to see the score

Apes in the trees could teach you to raise a family
better than you bring your kids up
humans didn't have enough love in their hearts
for every creature on the earth so they wiped most them out
for sport and for food
Oh they wiped most them out just for sport and for food



I'm not to blame
Cos I'm not responsible for the downfall of humanity
Oh I'm not to blame
Cos I'm not responsible for the downfall of humanity
The human race was always flawed
Too self obssessed to see the score
The human race was always flawed
Too self obssessed to see the score

So you post letters through my letterbox
Shout names accross the street
because I refuse to be what you want me to be
And I won't confirm for you are not a good example
of a human being


I'm not to blame
I'm not responsible for the downfall of humanity
Oh I'm not to blame
I'm not responsible for the downfall of humanity
The human race was always flawed
Too self obssessed to see the score
The human race was always flawed
Too self obssessed to see the score
Track Name: The Backup Boyfriend
He tells her eveyday that she is ugly
so she won't get no silly ideas that she could do better
They don't really like each other
This is serious, they are getting married

He is as gay as day is long
but he wants a big white wedding
and someone to bare his kids, she will do
He will let her do what no one else could

She's getting married to her backup
She's getting married to her backup
She's getting married to rainy day friend
She's getting married to her backup boyfriend

She wonders to herself what kind of father will he make
He always tells lies and he is always late
She knows that he is with someone else
But she thinks that when this wedding comes
everything will change, everything will be okay

She's getting married
She's getting married today

It must be better than being on the self
It must be better than being alone
It must be better than being alone at her age
She's getting married to her backup
She's getting married to her backup
She's going to marry her rainy day friend
She's getting married
she is going to marry her backup boyfriend
she is going to marry her backup boyfriend
Track Name: She Says
She's got that look in her eyes that says she's got money to spend
The saturday night routine begins over and over again

There's got to be more to life than this
There's got to be more than this
There's got to be more to life than this
There's got to be more than this she says
There's got to be more to life than this
There's got to be more than this she says
She hopes
She prays
There's got to be more to life than this
She hopes
She prays
There's got to be more to life than this
She hopes
She prays

She's got the smile on her face, the one that says she's been around
but she won't apologise instead she is going do a second round

There's got to be more to life than this
There's got to be more than this
There's got to be more to life than this
There's got to be more than this she says
There's got to be more to life than this
There's got to be more than this she says
She prays
There's got to be more to life than this
She hopes
She prays
There's got to be more to life than this
She hopes
She prays

She had the time of her life last night but today she feels all alone
Paradise seems so far away she's afraid to go back home

There's got to be more to life than this
There's got to be more than this
There's got to be more to life than this
There's got to be more than this she says
There's got to be more to life than this
There's got to be more than this
There's got to be more to life than this
There's got to be more to life than this she says
She hopes
She prays
There's got to be more to life than this
She hopes
She prays
There's got to be more to life than this
She hopes
She prays
There's got to be more, got to be more
She hopes
She prays
There's got to be more to life than this
There's got to be more to life than this

Track Name: I Hope We Never Meet Again
She is a heartless battle axe she is out to get
Said so many thing you wouldn't believe
she's making it, she's making it all up about me
Don't care what she thinks
cos her opinions just stink of rottenness

Don't believe her, she's trying to cage me
making my whole life hell


I hope I don't see you again
I hope we never never meet again
I hope we never meet again
I hope I never see you ever again

She is on the warpath and she wants blood
the truth is there is nothing between us ever since
you and me are enemies

I hope I never see you lady
I hope we never meet again
It is fucking clear
Track Name: The Kindest Thing
I never meant to break your heart
if I could I'd pull the pieces together again
I never meant to make you see the colder colder side of me

And yet the kindest thing to do would be to walk away and leave
but I'm still standing here
Yeah the kindest thing to do would be to set you free
but I'm still standing here

I wish you all happiness in this world
I wish you no regrets or hurt
I'd like to take the pain away
I'd like to change all I've done

Yeah the kindest thing to do would be to walk away
but I'm still still loving you
Yeah the kindest thing to do would be to set you free
but I'm still loving you
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

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

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

Track Name: Blindspot
She's my Johnny Cash
She is my Lucinda
She's my Emmylou and my Cheryl Cole
She's My jack Daniels and my antichrist
She's my one lost love and my blindspot

I hope she don't ever find out how in love I am
With my finger on the self destruct I'm past caring now
Her little rockstar is on the edge and looking to drown
only she can save me, she can save me now

She's my Johnny Cash
She is my Lucinda
She's my Emmylou and my Cheryl Cole
She's My jack Daniels and my antichrist
She's my one lost love and my blindspot

Her eyes change colour but my heart stays constant for her
One more drink to block out the image in my head
She's my missing link, the only one strong enough to save me from
the wreckage of my life, oh she is only one strong enough

She's my Johnny Cash
She is my Lucinda
She's my Emmylou and my Cheryl Cole
She's My jack Daniels and my antichrist
She's my one lost love and my blindspot
She's my Johnny Cash
She is my Lucinda
She's my Emmylou and my Cheryl Cole
She's My jack Daniels and my antichrist
She's my one lost love and my blindspot
