Track Name: A Lesson in Love
I came here thinking I was gonna fight for you
But then I learned the truth
You've been playing with my heart
You've been stringing me along
You've got someone else caught in your spider's web
You are stringing us along
You won't make up your mind
You're playing with both our hearts
our hearts

Oh it's a lesson in love
When to fight and when to let go
Oh it's lesson in love
We all need to learn
When to fight and when to let go
When to fight and when to let go
When to fight and when to let go
When to fight and when to let go

I've been down on my knees begging you please
But you won't put me out my pain
You keep telling me that's me you want
that's me you love
But you wouldn't do this if that were true
If that were true I'd be with you
It would be me and you

Oh it's a lesson in love
When to fight and when to let go
Oh it's lesson in love
We all need to learn
When to fight and when to let go
When to fight and when to let go
When to fight and when to let go
When to fight and when to let go


When to fight and when to let go
When to fight and when to let go
When to fight and when to let go
When to fight and when to let go

Oh it's a lesson in love
When to fight and when to let go
Oh it's lesson in love
We all need to learn
When to fight and when to let go
When to fight and when to let go
When to fight and when to let go
Track Name: Gone
Do you ever think about how differently it could have been?
Maybe if we had done things differently our love could have worked out
Instead of being betrayed with a single kiss
Oh if only I had known then what I know now

Cos love was the easiest mistake
We just seemed to fall in love
Cos love was our biggest regret
We woke up one day and it was gone
Cos love was the easiest mistake
We just seemed to fall in love
Cos love was our biggest regret
We woke up one day and it was gone

And as we age the lines on our face show every single smile
I'm getting older but emotionally I'm still here with you
I couldn't let go
I didn't know how to

Cos love was the easiest mistake
We just seemed to fall in love
Cos love was our biggest regret
We woke up one day and it was gone
Cos love was the easiest mistake
We just seemed to fall in love
Cos love was our biggest regret
We woke up one day and it was gone

Cos love was the easiest mistake
We just seemed to fall in love
Cos love was our biggest regret
We woke up one day and it was gone
Cos love was the easiest mistake
We just seemed to fall in love
Cos love was our biggest regret
We woke up one day and it was gone
Track Name: Simple as that
It took a long time to gather the strength to say what I had to say
I've been avoiding this for so long baby it's almost driven me crazy
I don't know how to break your heart easy
All I know is I've gotta tell you the truth
Well it got kinda complicated baby
And I just couldn't fight anymore for you

I woke up one morning and I fell out of love
It's as simple as that
It's as simple as that
I woke up one morning and I fell out of love
It's as simple as that
It's as simple as that

And I never meant for this to happen
But you should know there is nobody else involved
You've got your dignity
You should hold your head high
You did nothing wrong
Really this was me this time
It's me this time

I woke up one morning and I had fallen out of love
It's as simple as that
It's as simple as that
I woke up one morning and I'd fallen out of love
It's as simple as that
It's as simple as that
I woke up one morning and I had fallen out of love
It's as simple as that
It's as simple as that
I woke up one morning and I'd fallen out of love
It's as simple as that
It's as simple as that

Baby you can hold your head high
You did nothing wrong
You don't need to feel any less
Baby you can hold your head up high
Cos baby you did nothing wrong
You treated me right


I woke up one morning and I'd fallen out of love
It's as simple as that
It's as simple as that
I woke up one morning and I'd fallen out of love
It's as simple as that
As simple as that
Track Name: Going Crazy
Need a little love, need a little hope
Just to stop me going crazy

Am I setting myself up to take a fall over you?
Am I throwing it all away or am I grabbing onto what I need?
Call high dependency or call it love
it's the same thing
Call high dependency or call it love
it's the same thing

I need a little love, I need a little hope
Just to stop me from going crazy
I need a little love, I need a little hope
Just to stop me from going crazy

Baby you should know everything I've done, I've done for you
I'm paralysed with fear of losing you
I don't know what to do

I need a little love, I need a little hope
Just to stop me from going crazy
I need a little love, I need a little hope
Just to stop me from going crazy
I need a little love, I need a little hope
Just to stop me from going crazy
I need a little love, I need a little hope
Just to stop me from going crazy

I'm in the palm of you hand
You've got complete power over me
I'm in the palm of you hand
You've got complete power over me
So what's it gonna be? What's it gonna be?
Are you gonna rescue me, set me free?
What's it gonna be now? What's it gonna be?
Tell me your secrets please

I need a little love, I need a little hope
Just to stop me from going crazy
I need a little love, I need a little hope
Just to stop me from going crazy
I need a little love, I need a little hope
Just to stop me from going crazy
I need a little love, I need a little hope
Just to stop me from going crazy

I need a little love, I need a little hope
Just to stop me from going crazy
Track Name: Truly Sorry
Please forgive me for all I've done
I'm truly sorry that I let you down
And I can promise it won't ever happen again
I've learned my lesson and I won't make the same mistake again
Give me a chance to prove my love for you
Give me a chance to show my love to you

I'm truly sorry that I broke your heart
I'm truly sorry cos I broke my heart too
I'm truly sorry for all I've done
And all the things I should've done but didn't do

Please forgive me for all the things I didn't do
I'm truly sorry I should have expressed my love for you
The bottom line is I just don't deserve you
But you love me too, and I'm sorry I made you feel second best

I'm truly sorry that I broke your heart
I'm truly sorry cos I broke my heart too
I'm truly sorry for all I've done
And all the things I shoulda but I didn't do

Truly sorry for breaking your heart
It's one mistake I will never repeat
I'm truly sorry if I made you feel unloved
Cos you're the one thing that I want

I'm truly sorry that I broke your heart
I'm truly sorry cos I broke my heart too
I'm truly sorry for all I've done
And all the things I shoulda but I didn't do

I'm truly sorry that I broke your heart
Track Name: Mistake
I've made a lot of mistakes
But you are not one of them
I loved you on purpose and with all of my strength
I've never loved anyone the way I loved you that night and I never will
I've never loved anyone the way I loved you that night and I never will
It was a taste of paradise I'll never taste again
I'll never be your lover again
It was a taste of paradise I'll never taste again
I'll never be your lover again

It was a taste of paradise
You weren't a mistake oh no
It was a taste of paradise
You weren't a mistake oh no


Oh you never saw it coming I know
Oh I know my behaviour cannot be excused
And I have no dignity left after what I did to you
And I should have more sense than come back
But I came back for you
I couldn't move on cos my life should be here with you

It was a taste of paradise
You weren't a mistake oh no
It was a taste of paradise
You weren't a mistake oh no

You weren't a mistake
You weren't a mistake
You weren't a mistake oh no
You weren't a mistake
You weren't a mistake
You weren't a mistake oh no

You're a taste of paradise
A taste of paradise
A taste of paradise
You're a taste of paradise
A taste of paradise
A taste of paradise

You were no mistake
Track Name: Statues
Everything is changing but we are standing oh so perfectly still
The whole world is re-arranging but we can't react
phrases like freedom were something we used to understand
once upon a time ago but now we are frozen in time
Did we lose our minds or has the whole world gone crazy?

Everything is changing but it feels like we are standing perfectly still
We are the statues unchanging over time
Everything is changing but it feels like we are standing perfectly still
We are the statues unchanging over time

Once new and shiny soon degrades and turns to dust
I guess our futures were the one thing that we couldn't rush
No one knows what tomorrow will bring
But have we thrown it all away?


Everything is changing but it feels like we are standing perfectly still
We are the statues unchanging over time
Everything is changing but it feels like we are standing perfectly still
We are the statues unchanging over time
Everything is changing
Track Name: The Young Ones
When we were the young ones the world was full of fire
When we were the young ones our hearts were full of desires

But now we are getting older some of that passion is gone
We've lost loved ones along the way and gained new
Love in the process
And everything we valued has changed on decayed in time
So where do we belong now our identities have been erased?

When we were the young ones the world was full of fire
When we were the young ones our hearts were full of desires

Now our children are the young ones
The future's face couldn't be more different
Our vales and disillusionment won't affect them
They live in better times of equality and liberty
the past is something they read about in books

When we were the young ones the world was full of fire
When we were the young ones our hearts were full of desires
When we were the young ones the world was full of fire
When we were the young ones our hearts were full of desires
oh desire
oh desires of the young

Oh when we were the young ones the world was full of fire
When we were the young ones
Track Name: Just for Tonight
We've been through the wars together
I thought we would be friends forever
But now I see now naive I have been
Cos it's clear you've been playing me
But I can't just surrender you here and now
Give me one more night with you
Just leave me one more memory to cling to

So tell me you love me even if it is just one more lie
So tell me you want me even if it is just for tonight
So tell me you love me even if it is just one more lie
So tell me you want me even if it is just for tonight
Just for tonight

In the morning don't say a word just leave
Make it easy to let you go
If you don't call me I promise I won't call you
Let us just pretend we are strangers after tonight

So tell me you love me even if it is just one more lie
So tell me you want me even if it is just for tonight
So tell me you love me even if it is just one more lie
So tell me you want me even if it is just for tonight
Just for tonight
Just for tonight
Just for tonight
Just for tonight
Track Name: Wicked
I have walked in your shoes
Marched up and down Sauchiehall Street looking for you
I've heard you sing the blues
You excel at everything you do
Compared to you I'm a loser but I'm happy in my own skin
I don't need to create friction just to feel something

The things you say are so cruel
The things you do are toxic too
There is something wicked about you

you rank everything by beauty
You rate yourself a 10
On the outside you deserve it
But what about what is in within?
You can be so nasty and you don't need a reason to strike
Everyone who knows you is afraid to get on your bad side

The things you say are so cruel
The things you do are toxic too
There is something wicked about you
The things you say are so cruel
The things you do are toxic too
There is something wicked about you
The things you say are so cruel
The things you do are toxic too
There is something wicked about you
Track Name: A Woman Scorned
I don't envy you I wouldn't want to be you tonight
I saw her eyes glaze over and all the warning signs
Suggest you've really gone and done it tonight
Oh you've started a fight, yeah you've started a fight
I can tell by the way she talks she is ready to pounce on you

You should know better than pick a fight that you can't win
You should know better than to let her down again

Because woman scorned is out to get you
A woman scorned she'll hate and reject you
A woman scorned is out to get you
A woman scorned she'll hate and reject you

You should have hid that comic book collection that you cherish so much
You shouldn't have left those Gucci jeans on the bathroom floor
unattended
You might think she has gone overboard
but tell me what else did you expect?

You should know better then pick a fight you can't win
You should know better than to let her down again

Because a woman scorned is out to get you
A woman scorned she'll hate and reject you
A woman scorned is out to get you
A woman scorned she'll hate and reject you


A woman scorned is out to get you
A woman scorned she'll hate and reject you
A woman scorned is out to get you
A woman scorned
Track Name: One day at a time
You've really gone and done it this time
And this is the final time
I'm taking what little self respect I have left and leaving
Please don't call, text, or email
I've left this chapter behind
Sometimes it is better to leave some things unsaid

And I will learn to love again
My heart will eventually mend
And I will learn one day at a time
how to trust again

You've taken away a little piece of me
But I will reclaim all I've lost
You held my heart in the palm of your hand
And the damn things got crushed

I'll learn to love again
My heart will eventually mend
And I will learn one day at a time
how to trust again

I will learn how to love again
Oh love again
Oh love again
And I will learn one day at a time how to love again

And I will learn to love again
My heart will eventually mend
And I will learn one day at a time
how to trust again
