Track Name: More straightforward
Wouldn't it be great if only it could be as simple as I like them they like me?
No more complications or aggravations just straightforward you like me and I like you
It would be great but it never is that way
Wouldn't it be fabulous if life was more straightforward than this?
Wouldn't it be just spot on if it was that easy?
Just walking in the supermarket and pick up the one you want to meet
If only it was as straightforward as running a bath
Oh if only it was a walk in the park

Oh If only I was lucky
If only I was lucky in love
If only I was lucky
If only I was lucky in love
If only I was lucky
If only I was lucky in love
If only I was lucky
If only I was lucky in love


Wouldn't it be more nice if they liked me and I liked them?
And not in a psycho way more in a nice gentle way
Wouldn't it be nice if there was no more mind games?
Wouldn't be nice if everybody just got on?
Wouldn't be great if we could all be friends?
Even those of us that have a hard time together

Oh if only I could be lucky
If only I could be lucky in love
If only I was lucky
If only I was lucky in love
If only I was lucky
If only I was lucky in love

Why doesn't nobody like me?
I'm always standing on my own
And I say, it's not that it bothers me
I quite like my own company
It's just, you know, this girl has needs
If only I was lucky
Track Name: Sign on the dotted line
One day I will do everything I promised I'd do for you
But one day it won't be you who I'll be signing it for
Then baby you'll know maybe it coulda been better
if I had let it ha!
Oh baby you'll know sign on the dotted line really ain't that bad

The future is calling me I better behave myself
The future is calling me I better be good from now on
Oh if I only could be what the future demands of me
I've been putting it aside and locking it in suitcases but it still arrived
through my letterbox, oh arrived through my letterbox yeah
Know what I'm talking about
I can't ignore what I've gotta do

Cos the future is calling me, sign on the dotted line
I've got to behave now
Cos the future is calling me, sign on the dotted line
I've got to behave now
Yeah the future is calling me, sign on the dotted line
I've got to behave now
Oh the future is calling me, sign on the dotted line
I've got to deliver now
Oh I gotta say goodbye to you, oh yes
Oh oh oh didn't really matter you were never mines to keep
oh oh oh gotta say goodbye and let go of you
Cos you'd only drag me down
Oh you'd only drag me down

Now the futures calling, sign on the dotted line I better behave now
Oh, well the future is calling, sign on the dotted line, I better be good now
Oh, well the future is calling me sign on the dotted line, I better be good now
Oh, well the future is calling me sign on the dotted line I've got to deliver now
Yeah, future is calling me, sign on the dotted line, I've got to be good now
Oh, the future is calling me sign on the dotted line I've got to deliver now
Oh, the future is calling me, sign on the dotted line
Yeah the future is calling me, sign on the dotted line
Gotta do what I was born to do
Track Name: Leave your footprint on my heart
You came looking for me
You looked like someone had walked all over you
That you needed me
I heard your cry I went running to you
But when I arrived you didn't want me
Oh I felt your pain, I just walked on

Now it's me that feels like someone just walked all over me
Now it's me that feels like someone just walked all over me

Did you come to leave your mark on me?
Did you come to just to walk all over me
Did you just come to leave your footprint here?
Did you just come to leave your mark on me?
Oh just leaving your footprint here
Just leaving your footprint here

leaving your footprint here
leaving your footprint here
You're just leaving your footprint here
Oh Just leaving your footprint here
Just leaving your footprint here
Oh oh oh

I never stopped loving you
I just thought it's what you wanted
I can see that you don't know what you want anymore
Well you need to find that out

Did you just come round to walk right over my heart?
Did you just come round to walk right over my heart?
Did you come to leave your footprint here?
Did you come to walk all over me?
Did you come to leave your mark?
Did you come to walk all over me?

To leave your footprint here
To leave your footprint here
To leave your footprint here
To leave your footprint here
Did you just come to leave your footprint?
Did you just come to leave your footprint?
Did you just come to leave your footprint?
Did you just come to leave your footprint on my heart?
Track Name: Piggy back
I'm not like you, I don't want no piggyback
I'm not like you, I don't want to ride no tailcoats
Oh I'm not like you, I'll do it on my own
I'm not like you, I walk all alone

I'm not like you, I'm not afraid of growing old
I'm not like you, I'm not afraid of being alone
I'm not like you, I won't wear no second hand shoes
I'm not like you, I'll get there on my own
I don't want no piggy back there
I'll walk the full distance, I'll walk each step with care
I said I'm not like you, I don't want no free ride
I'm not like you, I pay my own way and I like it

Oh I'm not like you
Oh I don't need no piggy back
I walk on own feet
Woah I’m not like you
I don't need no piggy back
I'll get there on my own steam
I'll get there baby, I’ll get there it's true


And every step I will have walked well I’ll do it for you
Just to show that you don't need no free rides
To show that you can survive without riding somebodies tailcoats

I told you baby, ain't no freeloader
Oh, I’ll get there on my own
Oh I don't need no piggyback
Oh I'll get there on my own
Oh I don't need no piggyback
Oh I'll get there on my own
I'll get there on my own
Track Name: Almost AWOL
I sat in the back of your black cab
And thought about going AWOL from one of my own shows
I had had some bad news that day
I knew my bestfriend wasn't going to make it
She wasn't going to make it

I sat in the back of your black cab and thought about going AWOL
from one of my own shows, from one of my own shows
I almost said hey driver is there anywhere you would like to go to?
Then drive on, then drive on

Cos f#ck it I'm not making any money today
Cos my heart's not in it
My heart is terminally ill
F#ck it I'm not making any money today
F#ck it I don't wanna pretend
I don't want walk onstage and pretend I'm okay

I'm not making any money today
I'm not making any money today
Not making any money today
I'm not making any money today
I was almost AWOL with you
I was almost AWOL with you
I was almost AWOL with you
I was almost AWOL with you but only if you wanted to

Oh f#ck it I'm not making any money today and who wants to rich anyway?
Oh f#ck it I'm not making any money today and who wants to rich anyway?
Oh f#ck it I'm not making any money today but I don't want to be rich so that's okay

Oh I recognised your distinct tattoo
Please don't think I didn't know it was you cos I did
I thought I had lost my mind
Thought I had hallucinated you cos I wanted to see you
Cos you were the one thing that I wanted to see in that exact moment in time and I didn't think I was that lucky
You were the one thing that I wanted to see in that exact moment in time
You were the one thing I needed

Almost AWOL with you
I was almost AWOL with you
Oh I was almost AWOL with you
I was almost AWOL with you but only if you wanted to
Almost AWOL with you
I would have ran away right there and then with you
Almost AWOL
Track Name: I do not want you (she deserves you)
There is no forgiveness left
That well has ran dry
There is no turning back
You made your decision when you commited that act of cruelty
And if she is behind you well then she deserves you
You are both equally cruel

And I have come to the conclusion I do not want you
I do not want you

She can have you, she deserves you
She can have you, she's as bad as you
She can have you, she deserves you
She can have you, she's as bad as you
You should have an equal that's for sure
You should have an equal for sure
And I'm not, I'm not like that
I'm not, I'm not like you


Secretly I'm kind, I don't like to admit to that
Too many people take advantage of that
I can't imagine anyone taking advantage of you
I don't believe it's even possible

She can keep you because that's not the kind of life I want for me
Oh she is very welcome to you
Oh you should have an equal
Oh matching is important
And yeah cruelty deserves more cruelty
The innocent should keep out of this
And she's welcome to you
Oh she's welcome
Oh She can keep you
Oh She can keep you
Oh she's welcome to you
She's suitably matched
Yeah Yeah, She is welcome to you
If she is okay with behaviour like that
She's as bad as you are
She's as bad as you are
She's as bad as you are
Stay where you are!
Oh I don't want you
Stay where you are!
I don't want you
Track Name: A date with Karma
I couldn't have imagined that you would turn out to be the loser you turned out to be
I couldn't have imagined that you'd be so shallow I thought you were deep
Saw an old friend, I was talking to her and you'll see, she's got a date with you
I believe you called her

Her name is Karma she believes what goes around comes around
Her name is Karma, I believe in her
Her name is Karma she's got a date with you, she's looking forward to it too
Yeah her name is Karma
Oh I believe you called my friend up again
Well you should know she is on the case
What goes round comes round my friend
You don't need to retaliate in this world, it takes care of its self

Well my very good friend called Karma has got a date with you
Oh my very good friend called Karma is working her way to you
Oh my very good friend called Karma knows all about you
My very good friend called Karma is coming round to see you
Yeah my very good friend called Karma knows all about you

She's the one I believe in, I don't believe in anything else
Oh she's the one I believe in
Her and music are what keeps me strong

Yeah my very good friend called Karma has got a date with you
Oh my very good friend called Karma is on her way round to yours
Yeah my very good friend called Karma is gonna take good care of you
Well my very good friend called Karma knows all about you

Cos I believe in her I don't need do nothing, I believe in her
Oh my very good friend called Karma has got your phone number babe
and she will call you oneday
Oh my very good friend called Karma knows where you stay
Knows where you stay
Track Name: Open the door
It's been a long long time
I've always been pleased to see you when you did arrive
But I've not always opened the door
Infact, never once
I've always left you standing cos you never get it right
You never get it right
Baby, it's not that much to ask considering what I've gaven up
Considering what I gave
It's not that much to ask

Cos didn't I show you everything you desired and so much more?
And no other has ever done that, no other can
No there ain't a single soul that can do that
And I can do so much more, you'll probably never know

Didn't I show you what you lacked?
Didn't I show how to love?
Didn't I show you everything you wanted?
Didn't I show you how to be you?
Didn't I show you how to feel what you wanted to feel?
Didn't I give you what you lacked?
Gave you what you lacked
Gave you what you lacked

Baby, oh you can do it your way but in the end you'll come back
And stand there again, we both know that
And one day if you manage to impress me then maybe I might just open that door
One day I might just open that door
One day I might just teach you more
Track Name: Leopard
I guess I need rescuing
I guess I need somebody to save me from you and from myself
I guess I need a superhero right now
I guess I need someone special right now
I guess I need someone who could save me
Save me from the predator that's you
Always hunting the next one down

A leopard like you never changes their spots
A leopard like you repeats on and on
A leopard like you never changes their spots
A leopard like you repeats and repeats

I want a better life than that
I want what freedom brings
I want someone who can love me back without all this
I want true love
I want true love
I want true love
I want somebody who can settle down

A leopard like you never changes their spots
A leopard like you repeats and repeats
A leopard like you never changes their spots
A leopard like you repeats and repeats

Back to start you go
Back to the start
Repeating the same old show
Over and over again
You just break their hearts
You just break their hearts
Over and over again
Back to the start

A leopard like you never changes
A leopard like you repeats the same old mistakes
A leopard like you
Track Name: Gerry's prediction
Gerry I'm sorry, I was listening
Gerry I tried but it was too hard
You said, don't let her go or you will regret forever
You told me the truth on that train journey

We talked about love and we argued some
You tried to give me a guitar I wouldn't take
Gerry I'm sorry, I watched you throw it in the bin in a fit of rage
Gerry I'm sorry, you said I should've known you
Gerry you were right, I should have known you

Gerry, oh you were right about love
Gerry, oh you were right about love
But I walk alone just like you predicted
I walk alone just like you said
I'll be alone just like you predicted
I'll be alone just like you said

Gerry I'm sorry, I was listening
Gerry I'm sorry, I really tried
I know you loved that song and you wanted to know about her but I wouldn't say
Oh Gerry, you were right about love
Oh Gerry, you were right about love
Oh Gerry. you were right about love
Oh Gerry, you were right and I tried but I failed and I'm sorry
Gerry I was listening, I know you stormed off in a fit of rage
And put that expensive guitar in the bin
I watched you walk away
I watched you walk away
It must have been worth over a thousand pounds and I watched you walk away
You said it was no good to you but I don't why you were so damn sure it would make me a
better musician
Oh I don't know you believed in me
Track Name: Absolute or nothing (the terms of my love)
Came to tell me about a girl called Alex
I already knew about her
You know they say I look like her but I'm the original
I was here first, I was your first love
At least your first real love
And I know those songs are about me, I recognise that

Oh a girl called Alex
And yeah I sent you back to her, didn't it?
I didn't want you on those terms

Cos it's absolute or nothing
Absolute or nothing
It's absolute or nothing
That is my terms

It's absolute love or I don't want your love
It's absolute love or I don't want that love
It's absolute love or I don't want that love
It's Absolute or nothing
Absolute or nothing
Absolute or nothing
That is my terms

You've never been able to deliver
It's your biggest failure
And you don't like failing so I've always expected you'd get it right one day

One day, ah and that is why I've waited for you so long
One day, I expect that
Absolute or nothing
Absolute or nothing
Absolute or nothing
That is the terms of my love

Absolute or nothing
Absolute or nothing
Absolute or nothing
That's the terms of my love
Can you deliver?
Track Name: In my heart
If you don't know me by now I guess you don't deserve me
Was the ocean I cried for you not deep enough to satisfy?
Was my sacrifices never enough despite the fact
I tore my entire life apart in your name?
And in your name I walked showered by cruelty
never raising my hand back for I never wished to harm you
I couldn't if I wanted to

I only walk with love in my heart
There's only love, there's only love in my heart
There's only love, there's only love in my heart
There's only love, there's only love in my heart

Truely sorry that I dared to believe you could love me back
Sorry is all I can say
If it means I'm not an equal than so be it
for I refuse to become what I am not


There's only love, there's only love in my heart
There's only love, there's only love in my heart
There's only love , there's only love in my heart
There's only love, there's only love in this heart
There's only love, there's only love in this heart
There's only love, there's only love in my heart
There's only love, there's only love in my heart
There's only love, there's only love in my heart
