Track Name: I Wish you all the best
It's been a hard year. One full of goodbyes and heartbreak.
And I hope next year is one of change.
I hope you find what you're looking for.
I hope time is kind to you and what's more I am thinking
of every step of the way.
Let your heart be filled with good memories.
Let there be love surrounding you.
Let you feel happiness wherever you go

I hope that life is kind to you.
I hope all your dreams come true.
I wish you all the best
all the best
I hope that life is kind to you.
I hope all your dreams come true.
I wish you all the best
all the best

Forgive your enemies and keep your friends real close.
Don't dwell on what could have been, live in the moment.
Hold on to those precious memories.
Oh cherish the good times.
Oh cherish the good times.

I hope that life is kind to you.
I hope all your dreams come true.
I wish you all the best
all the best
I hope that life is kind to you.
I hope all your dreams come true.
I wish you all the best
all the best
all the best
all the best
Track Name: Maybe this love
Well I know what you are thinking
You are thinking how the hell did we get into this mess?
Yeah I know we are sinking
We buried our heads in quicksand
Did we know what we were doing?
Or is this exactly how we planned it?
If we can't be together are we self destructing?
Maybe we need to face the facts
This is the end of our adventure together
Maybe it's time to let go

Maybe this love was never meant to be
Maybe this love is just fantasy
Maybe it's time to set you free
Maybe this love was never meant to be

When I look to the future I can't imagine you not being there
It fills my heart with sorrow just to think of saying goodbye
I know if this love just belongs in fiction
I know if this love is just way too destructive
I know I should let it go
I know I should let it go
Sometimes it's for the best to give up the thing you want the most
But I don't have that kinda strength
No I don't have that kinda strength
Cos I just wanna hold on
Yeah I just wanna hold on

Maybe this love was never meant to be
Maybe this love is just fantasy
Maybe it's time to set you free
Maybe this love was never meant to be
Maybe this love was never meant to be
Maybe this love is just fantasy
Maybe it's time to set you free
Track Name: On Your Side
Baby I know that you are hurting
And I know that you need somebody to blame
But baby you are taking it out on the wrong one
Cos baby I am on your side
Life isn't fair we both have learned that
It's so fleeting so hard to hang on to
But baby I really do need you
And baby I feel you need me too

Baby we are in this together
It's the rest of the world versus us
Baby we are in this together
I am on your side

Watching the days go by so quickly
Please don't waste your time being bitter
Learn to live again
Learn to love again
Please take my hand
Walk by my side

Baby we are in this together
It's the rest of the world versus us
Baby we are in this together
I am on your side
I am on your side
Track Name: I Fucked Up
I met you at the ABC in Glasgow in 2008
I knew you were with the band straight away
I recognised your face
But it was your cute accent that gave you away
I would have loved to spend the night with you
But I had baggage in my way

I shoulda been your girlfriend but I fucked up
I would have rocked your world but it's tough luck
I shoulda been your girlfriend but I fucked up
Could we start again or at least be friends?

I was on a mission to drink myself into a stupor
I couldn't help myself
I had already pressed self destruct
The auto countdown had commenced
There was no turning back at that point
So I guess that's why
I should have been more attentive
but I had trouble on my mind

I shoulda been your girlfriend but I fucked up
I would have rocked your world but that's tough luck
I shoulda been your girlfriend but I fucked up
Could we start again or at least be friends?
I shoulda been your girlfriend but I fucked up
And I would have rocked your world but that's tough luck
I shoulda been your girlfriend but I fucked up
Track Name: Love Me Back
Usually I don't apologise for my mistakes
But since it's you I'll make an exception
Truth be told it's you I've been dreaming about
Cos nobody else compares
Nobody else comes close
You're the one Iwant so throw me a life line

Maybe this time I could get it right
Maybe this time you could love me back
Maybe this time I could get it right
Maybe this time you could love me back

And I know you're busy but could you squeeze me in?
I could make it worthwhile
You know we work so why fight it?
Why resist when it feels like this?
Baby I was meant to be with you
Baby you were made especially for me

Maybe this time I could get it right
Maybe this time you could love me back
Maybe this time I could get it right
Maybe this time you could love me back

I wanna be by your side
Through thick and thin
I wanna be your first and last thought every single day
I don't wanna throw this away
I don't wanna throw this away
I want your love
I want your love
I want you to love me back

Maybe this time I could get it right
Maybe this time you could love me back
Maybe this time I could get it right
Maybe this time you could love me back
you could love me back
you could love me back
Track Name: Unfinished Business
It's been a long time since I last saw you in flesh
I've seen you in my dreams every night
But I wasn't prepared for paths to cross
So my love you've moved on, I know this
Yet I wish for your love against the odds
Against the odds

For me it's not over
For me it's not over
There's unfinished business we need to deal with
For me it's not over
For me it's not over
There's unfinished business we need to deal with


Have you made your mind up?
Is there room for me in your life?
Maybe I'd settle for anything that you could give me
I'd wish for your love but I'd take your lust
If that is all you would offer me
Oh I'll take your lust
I'll take your lust
I'll take your lust

For me it's not over
For me it's not over
There's unfinished business we need to deal with
For me it's not over
For me it's not over
There's unfinished business we need to deal with
Track Name: Celebrate

Track Name: A Cowboy in Glasgow City
You walked into the nightclub
With cowboy boots on your feet
And a look that says you can't conquer me
But you can try
And many many have tried
Oh yeah many many have tried
You can try
I'll let you try

You look like you just walked out a movie
You feel like you belong in my dreams
You're a cowboy in Glasgow city
You belong in my dreams

What is it about you that brings trouble to mind?
You raise your hat and smile
Then sit back in your seat
Tell me why I can't take my eyes off you?
And I know you can feel my gaze
Oh how you just sit and smile

You look like you just walked out a movie
You feel like you belong in my dreams
You're a cowboy in Glasgow city
You belong in my dreams

Oh mercy will I ever find another you?
Cos I just can't approach you
There is something so intimating about you
Oh what will I do?
I can't find the strength to say how I feel about you

You look like you just walked out a movie
You feel like you belong in my dreams
You're a cowboy in Glasgow city
You belong in my dreams
You look like you just walked out a movie
You feel like you belong in my dreams
You're a cowboy in Glasgow city
Track Name: Leave Your Baggage at the Doorstep
If you are gonna be my baby you need to learn the rules
It needs to be just you and me
No hanger ons and third wheels
I want you for myself
Truth be told this is my only rule
I want you baby and I hope that you want me too
I hope you understand that I love you so much
I just want you for myself
So say you'll be my baby
Say you'll be the one

Leave your baggage at the door step if you are coming in
Leave your past where it belongs
Leave your baggage at the door step if you are coming in
The door is always open for you

Say you love me, convince me it's true
Give me a reason to wanna come home to you
Put a twinkle in my eye
Give me a reason to smile
Oh promise me your love
Oh promise me your love
Put a twinkle in my eye
Give me a reason to smile


Leave your baggage at the door step if you are coming in
Leave your past where it belongs

Leave your past where it belongs
Leave your baggage at the door step if you are coming in

Track Name: Got my Reasons
You can close the door on me, lock me out in the cold
You can tell me any lie that your desires takes hold
You can refuse to answer my calls when you know I need you
You can treat me so mean that I feel like a fool

I got my reasons got my reasons reasons to stay
I got my reasons got my reasons reasons to stay
I got my reasons got my reasons reasons to stay
I got my reasons got my reasons reasons to stay

I'm not calling you cold cos you do have a warm heart
You've got your reasons for taking me for-granted
And our past has always been an open book
You always had me dangling at the end of your hook

I got my reasons got my reasons reasons to stay
I got my reasons got my reasons reasons to stay
I got my reasons got my reasons reasons to stay
I got my reasons got my reasons reasons to stay

You can call me fickle you can call me mean
Call me an ice queen
But you don't see the full picture when it comes to me
I've done everything you asked of me
But still you won't let me in
Oh no you won't let me in

Track Name: Wait and See
To be honest I don't see the point
I spilled my heart out but it don't make a dent
How I'm feeling I can't quite expel
I told you I love you and met a wall of silence
You won't tell me so I won't ask
Maybe it's your secret to keep
or maybe its just your past
I don't know where to go from here
So tell me where do we go from here?

All I know is that I am sorry
All I feel is so completely lost
All I can do is wait and see
Just wait and see

I won't cause a scene
Cos I know it would be pointless
After all we've shared together
there should be a way to sort this
Cos if I'm honest I need something
And I was sure it was you that I need
Oh it's you that I need

All I know is that I am sorry
All I feel is so completely lost
All I can do is wait and see
Just wait and see

Oh to be completely honest
I'm just sorry
Oh so sorry if I don't make the grade
Oh to be honest
I'm just sorry
Oh so sorry if I don't make the grade

All I know is that I am sorry
All I feel is so completely lost
All I can do is wait and see
Just wait and see
