Track Name: A Little More time
What do you do when Romeo turns out to a player
thrill seeking using you when we spend our lives dreaming of the right one, so afraid they will pass us by?
What do you do when Romeo's kiss turns out to be incurable?
What do you do when the price of love is that high?

If only I had a little more time I'd travel the whole wide world with you
If only I had a little more time I swear that I'd be good
If only I had a little more time I'd make you smile everyday
If only I had a little more time I'd spend it all, all with you
I'd spend it all, all with you
I'd spend it all, all with you

If you could see the future
would you be able to hold it all together in your everyday life?
Could you walk down the street with a smile on your face
knowing it's your last day
Or press send when you know your pleas for help will be ignored?
yeah you know your pleas for help will be ignored


If only I had a little more time I'd travel the whole wide world with you
If only I had a little more time I swear that I'd be good
If only I had a little more time I'd make you smile everyday
If only I had a little more time I'd spend it all, all with you

If only I had a little more time I'd travel the whole wide world with you
If only I had a little more time I swear that I'd be good
If only I had, if only I had a little more time
If only I had, if only I had a little more time
Track Name: Your place
You became my weakness
You became my addiction
You make me burn like a fever of pure seduction
Your persistence paid off
Now I can't get enough of you
I can't get enough of your sweet sweet love

Oh baby, nothing could fill that void
Fill that void that your love left
Oh baby, nothing could fill that void
Fill that void that your love left
Oh baby, noone could take your place
noone could take your place by myside

Oh I can't let you go
No I won't let you go
I need you more with every passing day
I need your love each day as a flower needs sunlight
I don't feel no shame when I see your smile
I feel alive, I feel alive

Oh baby, nothing could fill that void
Fill that void that your love left
Oh baby, nothing could fill that void
nothing could Fill that void that your love left
Oh baby, noone could take your place
noone could take your place by myside
Oh baby, noone could take your place
noone could take your place by myside
Oh, noone could ever take your place
Oh, noone could ever take your place
I need your love love like a flower needs sunlight
I need your love love
Track Name: I'm glad I never married you
I tell myself when things get messed up, real messed up
It could have been much worse, it could have been much worse
It could be me sitting at home drinking all alone while you're off with other women every night
It could be much worse, it could be me all maxed up on my credit card living on the never never
hoping that I'll be dead by the time the debt collectors come round
hoping that I'll be dead by the time the debt collectors come round

Oh why couldn't I have loved someone else?
You're not worthy of my love
Oh why couldn't I have loved someone else?
At least I'm not your wife, it could have been much worse
Yeah at least I'm not your wife, it could have been much worse
Yeah at least I'm not married you
I'm glad I never married you

I'm glad I never married you
I'm glad I never married you

No good can come of your empire of deciet
You look so beautiful but you're so unsatifying
You should get done for false advertising
What's on the box ain't what you receive
What's on the box ain't what you receive
I've made some mistakes in my life but at least I never married you
At least I never married you

Oh why couldn't I have loved someone else?
You're not worthy of my love
Oh why couldn't I have loved someone else?
You're not worthy of my love
At least I'm not your wife, it could have been much worse
Yeah at least I'm not your wife, it could have been much worse
Yeah at least I'm not married you
I'm glad I never married you

At least I'm not your wife, it could have been much worse
Yeah, it could have been much worse
it could have been much worse
At least I'm not married to you
Yeah, it could have been much worse
Track Name: The Truth is
It's the diagnosis that arrives too late
It's the dramatic pause that gives it away
It's the one true love that burns every bridge but still keeps looking back
It's the fountain of life that just ran dry
It's the photograph that always makes you cry but you still keep it by your side

It's the love letter that you spend hours writing then delete it because it is far too frightening
To tell the truth about love
To tell the truth about love is too hard
And I'll keep your secret
I'll take your secret with me
Yeah, I'll keep your secret
I'll take your secret with me

It's the one promise that I won't break
I tried to keep them all but life got in the way
It's like living your whole life wearing your stage smile
It's the blots in memory where important information lies
The feeling of saying goodbye when your heart is screaming no
It's the feeling of letting go when you want to fight for this love

To tell the truth about love is too hard
To tell the truth about love is too hard
And I'll keep your secret
I'll take your secret with me
Yeah, I'll keep your secret
I'll take your secret with me
To tell the truth about love is too hard, Yeah
To tell the truth about love is too hard
But I'll keep your secret
I'll keep your secret with me
Yeah I'll keep your secret with me
I'll take your secret with me
Track Name: A Souvenir
If you loved me it wouldn't end this way
We're both walking on as perfect strangers
My love should have rescued you but instead you
brought me down with you
Sweet love I'll never change
but I will love you til my dying day
No matter what they say about me
My heart will always forever be yours

I'm giving you my heart to keep
Call it a sentimental souvenir
I'll never ask for it to be returned
Just call it a souvenir
of a love unchanged
of a love unchanged
of a love unchanged
of a love noone could break

I gave you my life but it weren't enough
Tired from fighting I'm giving up
But in my heart I will carry you
Never stop loving you
Call it souvenir of a love unchanged by hurt and fear
Call it souvenir, a piece of me you can always keep near

of a love unchanged
of a love unchanged
of a love unchanged
of a love noone could break
of a love noone could break
of a love noone can take
of a love that never changed
of a love untamed
Track Name: Shelved
Oh my love this has gone on too long
I cannot do this anymore for you
Oh my love when will it stop?
When will it stop?
There seems to be no limits to what you'll do
And I'm so powerless next to you
Oh I'm so powerless next to you
Oh so powerless

I cannot wait on the shelf my whole life
I cannot step back and just hope you'll change your mind
I cannot wait on this shelf my whole life
I cannot watch my life pass me by

Oh my love, there's no other I'll need
None I'll love so deep
Oh my love there's no other I will seek
but you're not meant for me

I cannot sit on that shelf
Oh my love I cannot sit on the shelf my whole life and just wait
Oh You cannot expect that of me but I know you do
Oh my love play fair with me
Try not to be so cruel with me
Track Name: how about you and me?
I don't have no money, I can't pay my way
only things that I own is my guitar and my boots
and I can only give you what any other could
I just could give you love if that's any good?
So baby I am asking how are you fixed?
Would you like to come on the road with me?
Baby I'm asking how's about you and me?

Baby yeah I'm asking how's about it?
How's about you and me?

And if you ever want to be a cowboy that's a game I like to play
If you would ever like to hit the road well that is my favourite place
Never feel alone when you're in company in guitars
Even if your heart breaks,pick up the six string it puts the pain away

Baby yeah I'm asking how's about it?
How's about you and me?
Baby How about you and me?
How's about you and me?
How's about you and me?
How's about it?
Baby take a while to think about it
Baby how's about you and me?
How's about you and me?
I think we'd work
Let's hit the road and see
Baby how's about you and me?
How's about you and me?

you and me
you and me
you and me together
Just you and me
baby How's about you and me?
How's about you and me?
Just you and me
Track Name: A vampire like you
I remember you from years ago
All dressed in black and all on your own
In the darkest alleys in this small city
In the darkest alleys searching for me
You were searching for me

I don't know why I fell in love with a vampire like you
I don't know why I fell in love with a vampire like you
A vampire like you
Why I'd fall in love with a creature so cold so cold so cruel

You don't want anyone to recognise you unlike how you live the rest of the time
You don't want anyone to know your real name
It is all illusions and alibis

And I don't know what made me fall in love with a vampire like you
And I don't know what made me fall in love with a vampire like you
A vampire like you
A vampire like you
Track Name: Someone else
You wanted to know if I had any regrets
I gave the answer I thought you wanted to hear
but the truth is you're my one regret
Oh the truth is you're my one regret

Why couldn't I have loved someone who fought on my side?
Why couldn't I have loved anyone else?
Why couldn't I have loved somebody else?
Why couldn't I have loved anybody else?
Anyone but you would have been a kinder fate
Anyone but you and it wouldn't end this way

All my life I dreamt of love
I was a prisoner to all that I wanted
While the others went chasing for lust
Only in love would I bow for
Only for love would I bow for

Why couldn't I have loved anyone else?
Why couldn't I have loved somebody else?
Why couldn't I have loved anyone but you?
Oh anyone would have been a kinder fate

Forgiveness won't come for me
I pretend I'm okay when I'm not
My head is a mess and I can't keep it all together
Cos all I know is time is running out

Oh Why couldn't I have loved someone else?
Anybody else just not you
Oh why couldn't I have loved someone else?
Anybody else would have been a kinder fate than you
Oh why couldn't I have loved someone else?
Oh why couldn't I have loved someone else?
Oh why couldn't I have loved someone else?
Oh why couldn't I have spared myself this fate?
Track Name: I just don't know
I really like you but I just don't know where I stand and where to go
I tried to tell but you're hard to read
If you like me could you give me a sign please
Some sorta message just to let me know that I'm not just wasting my time

I just don't know what you want from me
I just don't know what you want from me
I just don't know what you want from me
I just don't know what you want from me
What you want from me
What you want from me

Let's not make things so complicated
Life is short we should enjoy it
I'm not the wreckless type I just feel
I've waited all my life
waited for someone like you
I've waited for someone like you
I've waited for someone like you
I've waited for someone like you

I just don't know what you want from me
I just don't know what you want from me
I just don't know what you want from me
I just don't know what you want from me
I just don't know what you want from me
What you want from me


So paint the town red and pull the stops out
show me a sign that you want to me mine
So paint the town red, pull the stops out
show me a sign that you want to me mine

I just don't know what you want from me
I just don't know what you want from me
I just don't know what you want from me
I just don't know what you want from me
What you want from me
I just don't know what you want from me
I just don't know what you want from me
What you want from me
Track Name: This Valentine's
It's feb 14th it's valentine's day
I wrote a card for you I never gave you
with all the words, all the words I couldn't say
All the happy couples in the street pass by me
invisibly I stand all on my own, all on my own

They all have big red hearts, chocolate and flowers
big red hearts, chocolate and flowers
but there's no you in sight

Oh it'll pass
Oh it'll pass
Yeah it'll pass soon enough
this valentine's without you

Brave the storm
tell the world, tell the world
I love you, I love you
Let the rain wash all the players out the way
Let the rain wash the plastic hearts away
I love you, I love you

It'll pass
It'll pass, soon enough
It'll pass this Valentine's without you
It'll pass soon
It'll pass soon
It'll pass
this valentine's without you
Track Name: When you bore going through the motions
Baby when you bore of going through the motions
and need something real, you can call me, you can call me anytime
When the nights go longer all the chat gets colder
and it's harder to hold on to the real you
you should call me then

Oh when your heart breaks for something you don't have
you know you're always, you're always looking back
You should call me, you should call me then

Oh yeah you should call me sometime soon
Oh yeah you should call me sometime soon
Oh yeah you should call me sometime soon

Baby when the going through the motions seems so lonely
you should call me, don't leave it longer,
don't leave it a minute more

Yeah I know I'm sometimes oh so bad
I find it hard to pick up that phone
but if I knew it was you I'd be there

Baby when you get so bored going through the motions
you should call me, you should me
you should call me sometime

call me, you should call me sometime
you should call me, you should call me sometime soon
Oh yeah, don't leave me waiting
give me a call
when you're ready
don't want to stray no more
don't want to be out on this lonely world alone

you should call me when you're ready
you should call me sometime soon
