Track Name: My Last Heartbeat
I wish I could write you the perfect love song
But nothing would do you justice
I wish I could show you how much I love you
But it's so vast you can't just measure it

But this love will never die
But this love will never fade
I will love you right to the end
To my very last heartbeat
To my last heartbeat

Everything is so fragile in this life
It can all be stolen away in a heart beat


But this love will never die
But this love will never fade
I will love you right to the end
To my very last heartbeat
To my last heartbeat

And I will always be available to you
If you need me then I'll be there
Forever and always I'll be there
I'll always be there


But this love will never die
But this love will never fade
I will love you right to the end
To my very last heartbeat
To my last heartbeat
Track Name: A Shooting Star
What were you thinking about when you looked at the stars tonight?
Did you make a wish upon the shooting star as it soared across the sky?
Is love on your shopping list for life?
Are you ready to let love in again?

I've been searching for a lover
I was hoping you would be my significant other
I've been searching for a lover
I was hoping my search is now over now I've found you
Now I've found you
Now I've found you
I was hoping you'd feel the same way too

I'll always remember the time we spent together as the best days of my life
I'm ready to open my heart to love for the first time in years
I made a wish upon a shooting star and I hope it comes true
I made a wish upon a shooting star and I asked for you


I've been searching for a lover
I was hoping you would be my significant other
I've been searching for a lover
I was hoping my search is now over now I've found you
Now I've found you
Now I've found you

I was hoping you would feel the same way you too
Now I've found you
Now I've found you
Now I've found you

I was wishing upon a shooting star for you
I was wishing upon a shooting star for you
I was wishing upon a shooting star for you
I was wishing upon a shooting star for you
Wishing for you
Wishing for you
Wishing for you
Track Name: Sugar Rush
You are so sweet
I'm addicted to you
Like a sugar rush
I keep coming back for you
You are my incentive to keep going on
When the whole world is caving in on me
I feel the need to be loving you and shouting it from the roof

You are my sugar rush
You are the sweetest thing to happen to me
You are my sugar rush
You're the sweetest thing to happen to me

You can do no wrong when it comes to me
We could reach the stars as long as we are together
This is one addiction that I won't fight
I'll just give in to temptation

You are my sugar rush
You're the sweetest thing to happen to me
You are my sugar rush
You're the sweetest thing to happen to me

You are perfect as you are
You are amazing
You're the perfect match for me
You are the one thing I need
You're the one thing I need

You are my sugar rush
You're the sweetest thing to happen to me
You are my sugar rush
You're the sweetest thing to happen to me
You're the sweetest thing to happen to me
You're the sweetest thing to happen to me
You're the sweetest thing to happen to me
Track Name: Hand on my Heart
I was only 18 when I met you
I was trying so hard to be a rock star
Playing with my own rock band
It's a shame that my band, Bad Karma
Didn't get anywhere
But that's the music business for you
Sometimes it's a case of who you know
Or in my case it's who don't offend

Hand on my heart I tried for you
Hand on my heart I tried it's true
Hand on my heart I tried for you
Hand on my heart I tried it's true

By the time I was 21 I knew I was going nowhere
I'd made too many mistakes to bounce back from
Important people and I just swept aside
I didn't believe I needed them in my life
I'm so sorry I never realised how much I needed you too
I'm sorry I never realised until you were gone

Hand on my heart I tried for you
Hand on my heart I tried it's true
Hand on my heart I tried for you
Hand on my heart I tried it's true

I guess I'm just not the type to settle down
I guess it's just not my style
I guess I'm not the type to settle down
I guess it's just not my style


On my heart I tried for you
Hand on my heart I tried it's true
Hand on my heart I tried for you
Hand on my heart I tried
Track Name: Your Tears
You opened the door and I could see it in your eyes
You've been crying again probably been crying all night
What are you doing wasting your life?
Get out and do something that makes you feel alive
You've got yourself engaged in some sort of love affair
She is half your age, she might even be younger than I am

She's not worth your tears
She won't be crying for you
She's not worth your tears
She won't be crying for you
She's not worth your tears
She won't be crying for you
She's not worth your tears
She won't be crying for you

I've heard you on the phone pleading with her
So I've got a fair idea of what is going on
You're gonna end up losing it all
She's not gonna keep your secret

She's not worth your tears
She won't be crying for you
She's not worth your tears
She won't be crying for you
She's not worth your tears
She won't be crying for you
She's not worth your tears
She won't be crying for you

You've gotta think about what you're gonna lose
When she breaks the news
You're gonna lose it all after you spent a lifetime
happily married and now you want to start trouble

She's not worth your tears
She won't be crying for you
She's not worth your tears
She won't be crying for you
She's not worth your tears
She won't be crying for you
She's not worth your tears
She won't be crying for you
Track Name: Charlie
Charlie is a girl with long blonde hair and big blue eyes
Charlie just looks like a mini supergirl
Charlie used to be an artist
She painted lovely pictures
Charlie bought a motor bike but she was too scared to ride it

Sorry Charlie I lied when I said I cheated on you
Sorry Charlie I just needed you to give up on me
Sorry Charlie I lied when I said I cheated on you
Sorry Charlie I just needed you to give up on me


Did you move away or do you still live in the same city?
I hope you met someone nice to share the rest of your life with
Did you get a good job?
I think you liked it best working in the little art shop


Sorry Charlie I lied when I said I cheated on you
Sorry Charlie I just needed you to give up on me
Sorry Charlie I lied when I said I cheated on you
Sorry Charlie I just needed you to give up on me
Sorry Charlie I lied when I said I cheated on you
Sorry Charlie I just needed you to give up on me

You kept coming back time and time again
You kept coming back and it was no good for either of us


Sorry Charlie I lied when I said I cheated on you
Sorry Charlie I just needed you to give up on me
Track Name: I Wish You Had Picked Me
I miss seeing you around on the streets of Glasgow
I miss the nights we had in the Polo lounge
I miss the sound of your voice in my ear
I miss your touch so gentle and soft
I miss your antics even your attitude
I miss the way you make me smile with a look

Yeah I know you didn't pick me
Yeah I know maybe it wasn't meant to be
Yeah I know you are with her now
But I wish that you had picked me

As I get older I think of you more
Cause I regret the way things ended
By the time I put my life in order it was too late
Too little far too late
I told you I was trouble and I was telling the truth
And I hoped one day I'd come right for you
I can't blame you for not hanging around


Yeah I know you didn't pick me
Yeah I know maybe it wasn't meant to be
Yeah I know you are with her now
But I wish that you had picked me

All the things you did you impress me
Did make an impact
I listened to every word that you said
I never stopped loving you I never could
I never stopped loving you I never would


Yeah I know you didn't pick me
Yeah I know maybe it wasn't meant to be
Yeah I know you are with her now
But I wish that you had picked me
Track Name: False Hope
Oh my love your heart is broken take time to mend it
Don't rush into another doomed love affair
Yes my love, I'm here if you need me
But please don't lead me on don't give me false hope

Oh my love your heart is broken take time to mend it
Please don't lead me on don't give me false hope
My love our time together is over
Please don't lead me on don't give me false hope

Every night I long for your touch
But I know it means nothing to you
It's just a distraction, just a moments pleasure
Oh my love I'd never hurt you like they always do
You seem to attract all the wrong ones

Oh my love your heart is broken take time to mend it
Please don't lead me on don't give me false hope
Oh my love our time together is over
Please don't lead me on don't give me false hope
Oh my love your heart is broken take time to mend it
Please don't lead me on don't give me false hope
Track Name: Aberdeen
I wrote you a letter when I was 18
I had to tell you it was love at first sight
I had to tell you your music saved my life
I had to tell you that you made a difference

You travelled all the way to Aberdeen just to see me and you never said a word
You travelled all the way to Aberdeen just to see me and you never said a word

I was in twenties when you turned up
I recognised you straight away
I was kinda embarrassed you saw me in my uniform
I wasn't having a very good day until I set eyes on you and it was
as if you took my pain away with you

You travelled all the way to Aberdeen just to see me and you never said a word
You travelled all the way to Aberdeen just to see me and you never said a word

To tell you that I love you would be an understatement
I waited my whole life for someone like you
I met you years later in a crowded nightclub
I wish I'd hung around and had a drink with you

You travelled all the way to Aberdeen just to see me and you never said a word
You travelled all the way to Aberdeen Railway station the place where I worked

The place where I worked
The place where I worked
Track Name: Anything
It has been five years since I last spoke to you
I'd do anything to hear your voice on the phone
I'd do anything for an hour of your time
That is long enough to tell you the story of my life
I'd do anything to make you mine
I'd do anything if you'd love me back
Anything I confess
Anything, anything it takes

I wanted to be with you I wanted honesty through and through
I've never lied to you and I never would
You think that I'm a player but you're wrong
The past five years I've spent on my own
I've written you so many love songs I've lost count
But they're all about you

It's been five years since I last spoke to you
I'd do anything to hear your voice on the phone
I'd do anything for an hour of your time
That is long enough to tell you the story of my life
I'd do anything to make you mine
I'd do anything if you'd love me back
Anything I confess
Anything, anything it takes

I'd do anything for you
I'd do anything for you
I'd do anything for you
I'd do anything for you

It's been five years since I last spoke to you
I'd do anything to hear your voice on the phone
I'd do anything for an hour of your time
That is long enough to tell you the story of my life
I'd do anything to make you mine
I'd do anything if you'd love me back
Anything I confess
Anything, anything it takes
