Track Name: You're Forever on my Mind
So you got everything you dreamed of
You have someone to share your life with
And you are wealthy now at least compared to what you grew up with
And I know you haven't called in quite some time
I've not seen you round here for about a year
Oh is it wrong that I wish that you thought of me as frequently as I think of you
as I think of you

I think of you every day
I think of you every night
I think of you every day
I think of you every night
You're forever on my mind
You're forever on my mind

I don't know how to pretend that I'm okay
I wear my sorrow on my face
And I don't have the answers
I've just got more questions
And I know that you won't answer
won't answer
Yeah you won't answer
You won't answer

I think of you every day
I think of you every night
I think of you every day
I think of you every night
You're forever on my mind
You're forever on my mind
Forever on my mind
on my mind
You're forever on my mind
Track Name: Don't
I've been checking you out all night long
You've been smiling at me ever since I walked through the door
Love the way you are dancing it's sweet and cute
Are you dancing just for me?

Don't don't don't break my heart
Don't don't don't don't break my heart
Don't don't don't don't break my heart
Don't don't don't don't break my heart

I've been hurt before
Got the scars to prove it
And there are some things you don't just bounce back from
But tonight I want to forget all that and listen to the music
Let me hold you close tonight
Oh let me hold you close
Tonight could be a good night
tonight could be a good night
tonight could be a good night

Don't don't don't don't break my heart
Don't don't don't don't break my heart
Don't don't don't don't break my heart
Don't don't don't don't break my heart

I don't want to burden you with all my worries
so lets forget it all let's have a good night
let's forget it all let's have a good night

Don't don't don't don't break my heart
Don't don't don't don't break my heart
Don't don't don't don't break my heart
Don't don't don't don't break my heart

Track Name: With all my strength
I guess you decided to hang me out to dry
I guess I deserve that for what I did
I crave your forgiveness every single night
The things we want the most are the things that
make us fight
And it would take more strength then what I possess
But I will try to reach you
And to undo all the damage done
I will try with all my strength

And I will love you a little more every day
And I will try for you with all my strength
And I will love you a little more every day
And I will try for you with all my strength

I guess it is what you want it to be
A new start or just space to breathe
I will give you whatever it takes
As long as it brings you to my doorstep
one of these days


And I will love you a little more every day
And I will try for you with all my strength
And I will love you a little more every day
And I will try for you with all my strength
With all my strength
With all my strength
With all my strength
All my strength
Track Name: Fix my Heart
I wish it were different
I wished for you
But when I got you I put up so much resistance your love
didn't make it through

Tell me now
Tell me now
What you want
Tell me now
Tell me now
What you need

I gave you my heart but it was torn apart
I gave you a broken heart to fix
I gave you my heart but it was torn apart
I gave you a broken heart to fix

I have tried to shake this feeling that I must be dreaming
to have you by my side
I have cried at night cos I don't ever want to have to
say goodbye to you

Tell me now
Tell me now
What you need
Tell me now
Tell me now
What you want

I gave you my heart but it was torn apart
I gave you a broken heart to fix
I gave you my heart but it was torn apart
I gave you a broken heart to fix

Please fix my heart
Please fix my heart
Please fix my heart


Tell me now
Tell me now
What you want
Tell me now
Tell me now
What you need

Tell me now

Tell me now
Tell me now
what you need

I gave you my heart but it was torn apart
oh I gave you a broken heart to fix
I gave you my heart but it was torn apart
I gave you a broken heart to fix

Can you fix my heart?
Can you fix my heart?
Can you fix my heart?
Track Name: On and Off
I can see my life passing me by
Walking down Union Street at quarter to five
Just an ordinary Wednesday in the granite city
I gave you my love but you threw it away
Praying for rain to hide my tears
We've been doing this on and off for years

I wanna grow older with you
It's the one thing of which I am sure
I wanna grow older with you
I wanna be with you

So tell me what is the problem?
Why do you keep on stalling?
You think you can switch it on and off
But love does not have an off button
You either feel it or you don't
You either feel it or you don't
You either feel it or you don't

I wanna grow older with you
It's the one thing of which I am sure
I wanna grow older with you
I wanna be with you

I wanna be with you
I wanna be with you
Track Name: Everything I Dreamt Of
What will be my legacy?
Yours will be your music and your beauty
And all the scandalous love affairs in which you
like to indulge
I guess I'd be included as one of these
I didn't mean to let my guard down
Let myself be so exposed
I wasn't looking for love but it found me

I wasn't looking for a lover
I wasn't searching for love
But one day it found me
It was everything I dreamt of
I wasn't looking for a lover
I wasn't searching for love
But one day it found me
It was everything I dreamt of

So now where do I stand with you?
I'm just grateful for the love you gave
I knew it might not last
It seemed too good to be true
You like to love them and leave them
But I know it was different with me
Yeah I know you tried your hardest
I know you tried for me

I wasn't looking for a lover
I wasn't searching for love
But one day it found me
It was everything I dreamt of
I wasn't looking for a lover
I wasn't searching for love
But one day it found me
It was everything I dreamt of
Track Name: The Charity Shop
I saw you standing there in the charity shop
with your keys in your hand and a look
like you're lost
Forgive me for not smiling but
I was pleased to see you
Please forgive me for not speaking but
I never know what to say to you
How do you say hello to the love of your life?
The one that drove you crazy
The one who is with someone else but likes to reappear

I see you
And I feel it too
But you gotta understand you are with someone else
Yeah I see you
And I feel it too
But I lost my mind over you

I know it's not the reaction you hoped for
But you did insult me
And I know I don't look great these days
I've been struggling with my weight
Ever since you left I just eat my pain away
You were the one that drove me crazy
So forgive me for being cautious
In my head I see warning signs

I see you
And I feel it too
But you gotta understand you are with someone else
Yeah I see you
And I feel it too
But I lost my mind over you
Track Name: My Treacherous Heart
I know it's not a good start
The way we met
And know if you could cheat on her
You probably would cheat on me
I know it makes no sense that I chose someone else
But the devil you know is sometimes better than the
Devil you don't
It's not fair to call you a stranger cos you've been
in my life since I was twenty something
You've been part of my life

Realistically I know you ain't coming back to me
But tell that to my heart
It schemes and schemes how to steal you back
Tell it to my heart
My treacherous heart
My treacherous heart
My treacherous heart

I have to pretend that I can't feel my heart breaking
when I hear that you are still with her
And dreams if only you knew what I'd do with you
In my dreams
In my dreams
I like it when you turn up all unannounced
I like it when you are close by
I like it a little too much

Realistically I knew you're coming back to me
Tell that to my heart
It schemes and schemes how to steal you back
Tell it to my heart
My treacherous heart
My treacherous heart
My treacherous heart
Track Name: For A While
I don't know if you're listening
I don't know if you care
I don't know if I'll ever be in your arms again
I don't know if I am sorry for the time we had

For a while we were happy
For a while it worked
For a while we were happy
We were on top of the world

All the love letters I've written couldn't change your mind
All the love songs I could write wouldn't bridge the gap
the one between us
So deep and far

For a while we were happy
For a while it worked
For a while we were happy
We were on top of the world

I have the feeling life won't let it slide
I have the feeling life will make us face each other
face to face
It's a matter of time

For a while we were happy
For a while it worked
For a while we were happy
We were on top of the world
For a while we were happy
Track Name: The Plan
The plan didn't work
The plan backfired
The was to let you go before I was hooked on you
The plan didn't work
The plan was flawed
Cos I've been in love with you from first sight

Nobody was meant to get hurt
No hearts were meant to be broken
It was just meant to be some fun
We are both standing with our hearts in
our hands

I need a new plan
I need a new way to reach out to you
And help you shoulder the pain
I need a new plan
I need your forgiveness
Your forgiveness

Nobody was meant to get hurt
No hearts were meant to be broken
It was just meant to be some fun
We are both standing with our hearts in
our hands
Oh we are both standing with our hearts in our hands
