Track Name: Keeping the Undesirables Out
They put up signs to keep the undesirables out
If you tick these boxes they won't let you in
Your money is not good enough so go somewhere else
Your money is not good enough

In this day and age they must know what they do is wrong
But nothing ever changes cos no one says anything
Nobody says take those signs down you are breaking the law
take those signs down


I wait for the day when they take the signs down
Yeah I'll wait for the day they admit that they were wrong
Oh I wait for the day when they take the signs down
Yeah I'll wait for the day they admit that they were wrong

Who gets to decide what's a normal family
And Who gets to decide what will become of me
It doesn't seem right to me
People judge me like a book

A book with a dirty cover might be embroidered by words of such beauty that they
would change your life
but If you never look the past the cover you'll never see inside

I'll wait for the day when they take the signs down
Yeah I'll wait for the day they admit that they were wrong
Oh I wait for the day when they take the signs down
I wait for the day when they admit that they were wrong
Oh I'll wait for the day when they admit that they were wrong
Yeah I'll wait for the day when they admit that they were wrong
Track Name: You Don't Know
you say you love me
but why did it take you so long to miss me
A whole month later before you called
and so the story goes
I took the blame on my shoulders
but you were too angry to feel love
too angry to love

No you don't know know know know
No you don't know know know know
No you don't know know Know
how to love

No you don't know know know know
No you don't know know know know
No you don't know know know
how to love

To look through your eyes would be so scary
I don't think it is love it is obsession
You just need to own me
Quit telling me all those lies, you're tripping on your own words
Stop saying you love me and I'm the only one if you don't mean it


Cos you don't know know know know
cos you don't know know know know
Cos you don't know know know
how to love

cos you don't know know know know
no you don't know know know know
no you don't know know know
how to love
No you don't know how to love
no you don't know how to love
oh no you don't know, no you don't know how to


cos you don't know know know know
cos you don't know know know know
cos you don't know know know know
cos you don't know know know
how to love
Track Name: She Thinks I'm Not Good Enough
Your mother thinks the world revolves round her
Your mother thinks a model would be more suited to your acquired tastes
She reckons I'm too short to be with you
Your mother doesn't understand the mechanics of what we do when the lights off
the lights are off... oh

Your mother doesn't like you hanging with riff raff like me
She thinks you should be with Naomi Campbell, Sharon Stone or maybe Jodie Foster
maybe Jodie Foster..

*chorus
she thinks I'm not good enough for you
she thinks I'm not good enough for you
Simply just not good enough, simply just not good enough
she thinks I'm not good enough for you

Your sister thinks your mother might be right
Maybe you could go back to how you were before
before you dated me when you just slothed about the house
it was pretty handy for getting rides to places she likes
you were always around when she wanted you around
you never had a life before so why start now?

*chorus

Wait a minute you're actually very violent, and nasty,
you're moody, and clingy, obsessive and vain
I liked it when you left, there was no one been mean to then
so why did you have to come back again?
You thought I weren't good enough for you
Yet you crawled back up my path
seeking forgiveness and swearing I'm all you ever
wanted and all you'll ever need

*chorus (slightly different lyrics this time)
I think you're not good enough for me
I think you're not good enough for me
Simply just not good enough, simply just good enough
I think you're not good enough for me
Track Name: The Love I Send
Another winter on it's way
the leaves start to fall and sway
Another song about heartbreak to sing
I wish you could understand what I'm trying to say

It seems I've done all I could
It appears to be I've done all I should
but it is never enough for
it is never enough for you
oh it is never enough for you


Why don't you feel the love I send?
Why don't you feel the love I send?
How could you be so cold?
How could you be so cruel?
Why don't you feel the love I send?


It's a love that breaks all rules
It's a love that most don't see
An invisible force that binds two people deep in love
but you keep doubting the way I feel

It seems I've done all I could
It appears to be I've done all I should
but it is never enough for
it is never enough for you
it is never enough for you

Why can't you feel the love I send?
Why can't you feel the love I send?
How could you be so cold?
How could you be so cruel?
Why don't you feel the love I send?

Why don't you feel the love I send?
Why don't you feel the love I send?
How could you be so cold?
How could you be so cruel?
Why don't you feel the love I send?
the love I send
the love I send
the love I send
Track Name: Times of Trouble Baz's Version
In times of hardship you were always there
comforting soldifying your presence was always felt
In times when I cried myself to sleep it was always your shoulder I cried on

Where would I be if it weren't for you?
How would I have survived without you?
For you've been my rock, my crack, and hope
you've held me up when I began to fall

In times of trouble my feet never touched the ground because you carried me in your arms
In times of trouble I never felt any kind of pain because you were my remedy my morphine
In times of trouble you've always been there for me


And what could substitute for your love?
I doubt there is any drug strong enough
My base, my lover and bestfriend
Your whole life took a backseat for mine

In times of trouble my feet never touched the ground cos you carried me in your arms
In times of trouble I never felt any kind of pain because you were my remedy my morphine
In times of trouble you've always been there for me
Track Name: Forever Winter
It is forever winter when you are around
bringing me down is all that you do
you tell me a story but it's not the truth
it never is with you

I'm trying to find a place that warmer
your heart is so cold
You leave me alone, alone up to my ancles in the snow

I'm standing on the outside of the darkside of the wall
the wall that you built to keep me out in the cold

You never really let me know you
I'm always standing on the outside

It's forever winter
It's forever winter
It's forever winter loving you

It's forever winter when I look you into eyes
They are bright, they are mystical and blue
but they never answer any of my questions
they just lead me astray
they lead me to emptiness
Oh they lead, nowhere

You never really let me know you
I'm always standing on the outside

It's forever winter
It's forever winter
It's forever winter loving you

It's forever winter
Oh It's forever winter loving you
Track Name: Sanctury
My head is a mess, I can't find peace
I just feel paranoid
all those people they're looking at me
I don't know what to do
Can't find my way through it now
there's no point trying
I need sanctury a place to be at peace
I need a sanctury just to escape it all
take me away from it all
take me to a sanctury


Somewhere they won't find me
Somewhere I'll be at peace
take me to a sanctury
take me to the sanctury
take me to a sanctury

If I could spend my life with you I'd would feel at peace
but right now there are too many things in our way
too many promises I know you'll have to break

Take me somewhere safe, take me to a sanctury

Just take me to a safe place, leave me there til it is all gone
leave me there all alright again
abandon me somewhere you know I'll be okay
when the storm is over come back for me
come on back to the sanctury
sanctury
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: Gentle Goddess
She gently meditates her life through
She knows he'll never treat like he should
She just smiles at the bruises and laughs through her tears

All her children have grown up
but her oldest son remains
he stays at home to keep her company and protect her every now and again

She is a gentle goddess
She is a gentle goddess
She is a gentle goddess
Smiling through her tears

It's funny how her smile is still there
Never shows her sorrow in her face
crazy how if she had her life to relive she would still do it all again
so sincere you cannot critise
for all her love couldn't change the world
but it's never stopped her trying
oh no it never stopped her trying

She is a gentle goddess
She is a gentle goddess
She is a gentle goddess
Smiling through her pain
Smiling through her pain
Track Name: Illuminate
I didn't believe in love at first sight until the day I set eyes on you
I could call it from the tallest the mountain how much I love you
but still the news wouldn't reach you
I could paint it across the sky in colours so bold and bright
it would forever illuminate the sky at night
but you would never notice, you would never see the message from me,
the message from me

I can't make you love me
I can't make you stay
I can't make you love me
No I can't make you stay

I could quote every line ever written of love
and make some more up but it wouldn't be enough
I could sing a thousand love songs in every different key
yet not one would strike a chord with your heart and make you see


I could paint it across the sky in colours so bold and bright
it would forever illuminate the sky at night
but you would never notice you would never see the message from me
I could paint it across the sky in colours so bold and bright
it would forever illuminate the sky at night
but you would never notice, you would never see
the message from me
I could paint it across the sky in colours so bold and bright
it would forever illuminate the sky at night
but you would never notice you would never see the message illuminating love from me
Track Name: My Tears (live)
You honestly believe you are greatest catch that ever came along
You honestly believe that you are the lover of the century
And now will you see you are just another egotistical fool thinking that they had me

but I'm not gonna give you the satisfaction
I'm not gonna give you
I'm not gonna give you the satisfaction
I'm not gonna give you my tears


You build up your defences so never get hurt
You spend your whole life breaking down everybody else's
You hurt me just because you think that you should
And it makes you feel alright


I'm not gonna give you the satisfaction
I'm not gonna give you
I'm not gonna give you the satisfaction
I'm not gonna give you my tears

I'm saving all my tears for somebody who is worth it
I'm saving all my tears for someone who is a better lover
I'm saving all my tears for somebody who is worth it
I'm saving all my tears for anybody but you

I'm not gonna give you the satisfaction
I'm not gonna give you
I'm not gonna give you the satisfaction
I'm not gonna give you my tears
Track Name: Say Now
going to leave for I said too much again
I let myself down and took you with me
I'm trying to hide but you know what I'm feeling
inside you know I wanna be with you

Make it so hard to try to love me
I only give you reason to doubt me
It is true I love you

If you want me to stay just say now
If you want me to stay just say
If you want me then say right now
just say
say now
say now

No apologies requested
I don't want be another regret
Oh no,not another regret

If you want me to stay just sy now
If you want me to stay just say
If you want me then say right now
just say
say now
say now

Say now
say now
Track Name: A Long Road
It's been a long dusty road
I would have been all alone if it weren't for you
When turned round you were by my side ready to comfort me
when I was crumbling down

When I felt like hell you were holding me up
You wouldn't let me fall to the gound
You kept me strong and told me not to give up
Believe I did you kept me going on

Oh I would have been lost without you
Oh so lost without you

Thank-you for being a friend I really needed somebody back then
Thank-you for being a friend you made a difference I appreciate it

When everybody judged me by the gossip they heard
you were busy listening to music and dancing with me
It meant a lot to have somebody who cared cos nobody else seemed to care about me


Oh I would have been lost without you
Oh so lost without you

Thank-you for being a friend I really needed somebody back then
Thank-you for being a friend you really made a difference I appreciate it
