Track Name: Next to Mine
In crowded nightclubs we are looking for someone
Sometimes we are looking for anyone
It is love we all truely desire
I'll give you something to quench that fire
I'll show you love
I'll show you love

Move your body next to mine
I wanna love you all night long
Move your body next to mine
I wanna feel you all night long
Move your body next to mine
I wanna hold you all night long
I'll show you love

Beautiful people doing ugly things
We fight the war against sin
Bring me passion and I will surrender
I will surrender

Move your body next to mine
I wanna love you all night long
Move your body next to mine
I wanna feel you all night long
Move your body next to mine
I wanna hold you all night long
I'll show you love
I'll show you love

Vision and blindness leave me speechless
I'll show you something like no other will do
I'll show you love
I'll show you love
I'll show you love
I'll show you love
I'll show you love
Track Name: Sweet Enough
I've lost the plot but I'll admit it
I keep good company on my own
I don't need you
Don't tell me what to do
or I'll go out my way to do the opposite of what you want

I'm sweet enough without you
Don't need what you are selling
I'll get along fine without you
I'm sweet enough without you
Don't need what you are selling
I'll get along fine without you
sweet enough without you
Don't need what you are selling
I'll get along fine without you
I'm sweet enough without you
Don't need what you are selling
I'll get along fine without you
I'm sweet enough

So who to assign blame to
Know somebody has to take responsibility
Like any organisation, someone's head must roll
And that someone won't be me

I'm sweet enough without you
Don't need what you are selling
I'll get along fine without you
sweet enough without you
Don't need what you are selling
I'll get along fine without you
I'm sweet enough without you
Don't need what you are selling
I'll get along fine without you
I'm sweet enough without you
Don't need what you are selling
I'll get along fine without you
I'm sweet enough

I'll get true love one day
but until then I'll just love myself
I'll get true love one day
but until then, yeah I will just love myself

I'm sweet enough without you
Don't need what you are selling
I'll get along fine without you
I'm sweet enough without you
Don't need what you are selling
I'll get along fine without you
I'm sweet enough without you
Don't need what you are selling
I'll get along fine without you
I'm sweet enough without you
Don't need what you are selling
I'll get along fine without you
Track Name: In My Dreams
I got your message
I don't believe it
I really loved you
I gave you all the love you craved
Why would you turn that away?
Why would you turn that away?

I see you every night in my dreams
I see you every night in my dreams
I see you every night in my dreams
I see you every night in my dreams
in my dreams
in my dreams


You take one step forward and ten steps back
You give me challenges that I can't pass
It's no solution but if you don't want me
I've got to leave

I see you every night in my dreams
I'll see you every night in my dreams
I'll see you every night in my dreams
I'll see you every night
I'll see you every night in my dreams
I'll see you every night in my dreams
I'll see you every night in my dreams
I'll see you every night
Oh I'll see you every night
I'll see you every night in my dreams
I'll see you every night in my dreams
I'll see you every night in my dreams
I'll see you every night
I'll see you every night in my dreams
I'll see you every night in my dreams
I'll see you every night in my dreams
I'll see you every night
Track Name: Your Revenge
Guess I'd really like to know was it all just revenge
Guess I'd maybe like to see if you were human again
Leave it all out on the line for the world to see what a fool I've been
Tell them all my story now, they should know what you did to me

So here we are my love, so we are
And so here are my love giving up
People tell me what is meant for me won't go by, won't go by
People tell me what is meant for me won't go by, won't go by
But why are you leaving me oh so far, oh so far
Why if you needed me did you have to push one last time?
People say what is meant for me won't go by, won't go by
People say what is meant for me won't go by, won't go by
Why my love are you leaving me?
Had to push one last time
Why my love are you breaking me?
Had to push one last time
People say what is meant for me won't go by, it won't go by
People say what is meant for me won't go by, won't go by
Track Name: Must have
Normally I'm only window shopping
Never see anything I want to buy
Had to stop and stare when I saw your face
You are something I must try
You got oh la la that all the others lack

I think that you are gorgeous
you should be in the aisle marked must have
I think that you are gorgeous
you should be in the aisle marked must have

you're so pretty pretty please
Oh you're so pretty pretty please

don't think I make a hibit of this
it is really not my style
it is quite out of character
Yeah it's not me

I must buy you up
I'll put you on my credit card
I'll spend every penny I have to make you mine
I must have, I must buy

Yeah I think that you are gorgeous
you should be in the aisle marked must have
I think that you are gorgeous
you should be in the aisle marked must have

you're so pretty pretty pretty please
Oh you're so pretty pretty pretty please

Yeah I think that you are gorgeous
and I won't be happy til your mine
Yeah I think that you are gorgeous
you are something I must try
you are something I must try
won't be happy til your mine
won't be happy til your mine
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: My Favourite Fight
You will always be my favourite of all the beautiful creatures in this world
If I was forced to get married at gunpoint I'd pick you to be my life partner
You will always be my first and my last thought every day and every night
You will always be my soulmate it is a shame we didn't get on in real life
You will always be my addiction, my fascination, and my weakness
And all that blamed for everything that is wrong in my life

Yeah it's love but life got in the way
You were my favourite fight
Would have battled to death just to please you
You were my favourite fight
you'll always be my favourite fight
you'll always be my favourite fight
always be my favourite fight
you'll always be my favourite

The only worth opponent I've ever encountered, a real challenge
The one I adored, even as I slated you in public
in private I longed for more of your venom
Miss you when you go travelling, I wish you'd visit me
or send me some hatemail or poison pen postcards
I'd treasure it forever

Yeah it's love but life got in the way
You were my favourite fight
I would have battled to death just to please you
You always were my favourite fight
you'll always be my favourite fight
you'll always be my favourite fight
you'll always be my favourite fight
you'll always be my favourite

So look me in the eye and square up to me one last time
I'm all words and no action a bit like yourself in the bed
In my heart I'm a hippy but when you're around I turn into a rottweiler
we bring out the worst in each other that's why we don't work out
It is like two superpowers meeting in intergalatic battle
when we fall out
we only get along in our dreams

Yeah it's love but life got in the way
You always were my favourite fight
Would have battled to death just to please you
You always were my favourite fight
Yeah it's love but life got in the way
You always were my favourite fight
I Would have battled to death just to please you
You always were my favourite fight
You'll always be my favourite fight
You'll always be my favourite fight
You'll always be my favourite fight
You'll always be my favourite
Track Name: False Alarm
So there I stood in the crowd with my heart breaking
while you said goodbye to me in a language I understand
You underestimate how intelligent I am
you treat me like those young schoolgirls whose hearts
you play with like Barbie dolls

And here I stand, my prince charming was a false alarm
Who turned love away to even up a score
And here I stand, my prince charming was a false alarm
Who turned love away to even up a score
the kind of love they write about
the kind of love we both sing about
the kind of love people would lay their lives down just to taste
the kind of love must people only dream about
it was a false alarm
it was a false alarm

All you had to do was speak
not try to manipulate me
I told you I needed honesty
And gave time to tie your loose ends up
I was on my way I just wanted things done right
No hearts should ever been broken in the crossfire
Let me spell it out
I wouldn't make myself a cheat
Was I too noble?
Are you too impatient for love?
or do you think you are so glorious thatlove should bow at your feet?

And here I stand, my prince charming was a false alarm
Who turned love away to even up a score
And here I stand, my prince charming was a false alarm
Who turned love away to even up a score
the kind of love they write about
the kind of love we both sing about
the kind of love people would lay their lives down just to taste
the kind of love must people only dream about
it was a false alarm
it was a false alarm
it was a false alarm
it was a false alarm
it was a false alarm
it was a false alarm
it was a false alarm
it was a false alarm
Track Name: He's my mate
Let me introduce myself before things get much further
Got a decent bloke there so keep hold of him tight
If you make a mistake I'll find out where you live
I've got a guitar and I'm not afraid to use it

He's my mate so you better not hurt him
He's my mate so you better not hurt him
He's my mate so you better not hurt him
He's my mate so you better not hurt him

If you make him feel inadequate at any time
I reserve the right to come visit you late at night
I'll come around for a little chat
It'll be a chat you won't forget in a hurry

He's my mate so you better not hurt him
He's my mate so you better not hurt him
He's my mate so you better not hurt him
He's my mate so you better not hurt him


He's my mate, if you break his heart you'll have a date with me
It'll be a date you won't forget for the rest of your life
He's my mate if you pick a fight with him you've got a fight
with me automatically

He's my mate so you better not hurt him
He's my mate so you better not hurt him
He's my mate so you better not hurt him
He's my mate so you better not hurt him
Track Name: Learning to Live with a Broken Heart
I got my guitar in my hand and rucksack on my back
all my weight of my problems and I ain't coming back
I gave you one big gesture if you are far too blind to see
well there's no point in crying cos it was never meant to be

And I am letting go
I am letting go
I am letting go
I am letting go
I am letting go
I am letting go
I am letting go, for once you are on your own


And I won't look back cos there is no return from here
Well I can't quite stop my heart from breaking so I just move on
All that I've done is try to show you love
but now it's time that you walked on your own

I am letting go
I am letting go
I am letting go
I am letting go
I am letting you go so walk on on your own
Don't cry or expect me to return
And every love song that comes from this point will be for someone else

I am letting go
I am letting go
I am letting go
I am letting go
You are on your own from this point forward
You are on your own
I have let go
I have let go
Track Name: A Big Big Love
4 days in tears over you
On the 5th day I resigned to a life unloved without you
No miracle could bring you back to me so ride on sweet cowboy

It was a big big love I gave
big big love I gave to you
It was big big love I gave to you
This was the movie moment, make or break

Will you come full circle back to me too late?
will you be clinging onto whatever remains?
It was a big big love
It was a big big love
It was a big big love
I gave to you
This was the movie moment, make or break
This was the movie moment, make or break
it's a big big love
it's a big big love
it's a big big love
it's a big big love
This was the movie moment, make or break
This was the movie moment, make or break
It was a big big love
It was a big big love
