Track Name: An Opinion
I got my hair cut today
Now everybody seems to think that I am a boy
I'm too old for my dreams to come true
But I'm not old enough to give them up
I'm in a limbo my life is a paradox
I'm all of the above and so much more
No one wants to take a chance on me thesedays
Thesedays

Everybody wants to give me advise
But it don't things better
It just hurts
Everybody's got an opinion
But that doesn't make them right
That don't make it right


So where do you see yourself being in ten years time?
Still doing a job you hate
Do you think you'll have enough money saved up
For your great escape?
Tell me your darkest secrets and I'll tell you all mine
Tell me your darkest secrets and I'll tell you all mine
Don't be a stranger be a friend oh be my friend
Don't be a stranger be a friend oh be my friend

Everybody wants to give me advise
But it don't things better
It just hurts
Everybody's got an opinion
But that doesn't make them right
It doesn't make it right
Everybody wants to give me advise
But it don't things better
It just hurts
Everybody's got an opinion
But that doesn't make them right
It doesn't make it right
Everybody's got an opinion
But that doesn't make them right
It doesn't make it right
Track Name: The Lies We All Tell
I though it through I know it can't work
between us but I still want you
Problem is I can't quite let you go
I give you up but all I want to know
is are you okay?
You are the first thing and the last thing on my mind
You're the only lover you'll ever know
And I'll never love another
For as long as I live you will be my one true love
My one true love
I will never love another
As long as I live you will be my one true
One true love


What will my love bring me in the end?
Bitterness and tears are all I seem to receive
But you should know
I love you more and more and more

You are my one true love
You are my one true love
You are my one true love
You are my one true love
One true love
Track Name: Someone Like Me
Someone like you couldn't love someone like me
It's as if we walk on different streets
Someone like me could never be with someone like you
It seems too good to be true
Someone like me could love you more than any other
in this world could ever do
But someone like me couldn't be with someone like you
Not in this world not in this time

Someone like me could never be with someone like you
The world just keeps us apart
Someone like me might be the one you want
And she's just a smokescreen that's the truth
Someone like me could never be with someone like you
But that don't make it right
That don't make it sting less
Someone like me could love you more than any other
Track Name: A Better Me
You make me wanna be a better person
From the moment we met
The past don't mean anything anymore
The future looks so bright
All the things I wanna achieve
I wanna achieve them for you
I wanna make you proud
I wanna be the right one for you

You make me wanna be a better person
You make me wanna be a better Me
You make wanna be a better person
You make me a better Me

I've made so many mistakes
I'm petrified incase I repeat them
But when I look in your eyes I know I won't
Cos I've got too much to lose
In your smile, in your smile I get lost
I know what I want
I want you I want you alone
Just you

You make me wanna be a better person
You make me wanna be a better Me
You make wanna be a better person
You make me a better Me

Oh what can I do to prove my love to you?
Oh what I can I do?
I'd do anything, I'd do anything, anything for you
Just to let you know that I adore you
and I always will
Just to let you know that I adore you
and I always will

You make me wanna be a better person
You make me wanna be a better Me
You make wanna be a better person
You make me a better Me
Track Name: A Miracle Or A Sign
I had hoped for better news
They say no news is good news
But that just ain't true
I don't know if I'll ever see you again
unless it's in my dreams
You seem to haunt them

I don't know much
It's all guess work
But I would have liked a little more time
With you

Cos I was not ready to say goodbye
I was still holding on for a miracle or a sign


Only a fool walks with such denial
But sometimes it's better than facing
the ugly truth

Cos I was not ready to say goodbye
I was still holding on for a miracle or a sign
I was not ready to say goodbye
I was still holding on for a miracle or a sign
I was not ready to say to say goodbye
I was still holding on for a miracle or a sign
I was not ready to say to say goodbye
I was still holding on for a miracle or a sign
Track Name: I Do
Watch the seasons change
Winter is coming
All the leaves fall to the ground
I can't hear the birds singing no more
But when they do I could swear they say your name

All I know all I know is I do
And I will
I will for you
All I know All I know is I do
And I will and I will and I will for you
All I know All I know is I do
And I will and I will and I will just for you

No more summer sun to warm my bones
No more swimming in the sea
Winter came winter came
And I lost you
All I know All I know is I still love you
All I know All I know is I do
And I will and I will for you
All I know All I know is I do
And I will and will and will just for you
All I know All I know is I do
And I will and I will and I will just for you
All I know All I know is I do
And I will and I will and I Will just for you
Track Name: Red Leather Jacket
I saw you standing there in your red leather jacket
You look like a rock star I'd like to meet
Please forgive me I had a lot on my mind
Please forgive me I was on the verge of losing my mind

You are my hero
You were my first love
You are my hero
And you don't disappoint
You are my hero
You were my first love
You are my hero
And you rock

You look so beautiful
You walk with stagger
You've got your own distinct style
Nothing else matters
I've always loved you since I first heard your voice

You are my hero
You were my first love
You are my hero
And you don't disappoint
You are my hero
You were my first love
You are my hero
And you don't disappoint

For years I've tried to break through
So I can stand shoulder to shoulder with you
For years I have loved you
In a way I felt you loved me back
For years I've loved you
And nobody else
And I've felt your love too

You are my hero
You were my first love
You are my hero
And you don't disappoint
You are my hero
You were my first love
You are my hero
And you don't disappoint
Track Name: Millionaire
If I had kept my mouth shut
I might be a millionaire by now
Okay maybe not
I've got a problematic personality
I always let myself down
The list of people I have insulted
Gets longer as I age
I'm not going gracefully
I'm going disgracefully and in bad taste

If only my dreams came true
It would be me and you and a pile of money
Yeah a pile of money

I'd be a millionaire by now
I'd be a millionaire by now
I'd be a millionaire by now
You'd be spending all my money

In my dreams I went to London
I've been there before and but it's never been
quite like that in real life
In real life
You'd be spending all money on clothes and hats

If only my dreams came true
It would be me and you and a pile of money
Yeah a pile of money

I'd be a millionaire by now
I'd be a millionaire by now
I'd be a millionaire by now
You'd be spending all my money
spending all my money
spending all my money
spending all my money
spending all my money
Track Name: Substitute
Got some money saved up for a rainy day
Let's go and spend it all
We could go to Venice or Rome
It's really pretty there this time of year
So pack your bag and let's go
Let's do something
Anything you want
Let's live life on the edge
I'm tired of playing it safe
When I know how this ends


I'm just a substitute
I know there is no future with you
Yeah I'm just a substitute
Yeah I know exactly what I'm getting myself into

Doesn't mean my heart won't break
all the same
Doesn't mean I can numb the pain
Doesn't mean I don't dream that
you were mine

Yeah I'm just a substitute
I know there is no future with you
Yeah I'm just a substitute
Yeah I know exactly what I'm getting myself into

Yeah I'm just a substitute
I know there is no future with you
Yeah I know I'm just a substitute
I know exactly what I'm getting myself into
I know there is no future with you
I'm just a substitute
Track Name: Candy For My Eyes
What a nice surprise you are
You are like the sweetest candy bar
What a success your story is
You've done so well
You've gone so far
What charisma you have
Tell me is that all natural
or chemically enhanced?
I wonder
Oh it's lovely to meet you

What a picture
Picture perfect
You are like candy for my eyes
What a picture
Picture perfect
You are candy for my eyes

Oh what a delight you are
You are so sweet it is infectious
What a pleasure is it to meet
You in the flesh
And for a pop star you are pretty grounded
Reading your book in the bathroom
during the curtain call

What a picture
Picture perfect
You are like candy for my eyes
What a picture
Picture perfect


It's not everyday I meet someone like you
I wish I had a little time to spend with you
I wish that I could stay and keep you company

What a picture
Picture perfect
You are like candy for my eyes
What a picture
Picture perfect
You are candy for my eyes
Candy for my eyes
Track Name: Goodnight and Sweet Dreams
I won't say goodbye cos that is so permanent
And I still hope that I'll see you again
I'll try to smile cos that is what you would have wanted
But deep down it hurts so much to let you go

So I'll say good night and sweet dreams
This world is no place for such a beautiful human being
So I'll say good night and sweet dreams
Until we meet again
Until we meet again

You touched so many lives
I can only imagine what you would have done
if you had been blessed with more time
It's such a tragedy
It's one of those things in life that is so unfair
It's so unfair
That's life
I wish you were still here
I miss you every day

So I'll say good night and sweet dreams
This world is no place for such a beautiful human being
So I'll say good night and sweet dreams
Until we meet again
Until we meet again
Until we meet again
Until we meet again
