Track Name: The Real Thing
I used to think that love was the easiest game to play
You could find it in any bar or nightclub night or day
Just find somebody who catches your eye
Then say the right words at the right time
But lately things are changing I don't feel that way
But lately things are changing I can't get you out out my mind

I want the real thing
I want true love
I want the real thing
I want true love
I want the real thing
I want true love
I want the real thing
I want your love

We all build these walls to protect our precious little hearts
We all say things we don't mean to drive us apart
We all play Russian Roulette with words and our hearts
We all play Russian Roulette with words and our hearts

I want the real thing
I want true love
I want the real thing
I want true love
I want the real thing
I want true love
I want the real thing
I want your love
I want the real thing
I want true love
I want the real thing
I want true love
I want the real thing
I want true love
I want the real thing
I want your love
Track Name: We are not Friends
This is not a love song so don't get any ideas
You've not heard from me for how many years?
It took me so long for my heart to stop aching
What you do with hearts is some special kinda art
You rip them apart
You rip them apart

so get that goofy look off your face cos we are not friends
Don't dare to embrace me we are nowhere near there
We are not friends

I deleted your number from my phone
So I didn't have the temptation to call
I blocked you on facebook again
Cos I didn't want to see what you had to say
I deleted your number from my phone
So I didn't have the temptation to call
I blocked you on facebook again
Cos I didn't want to see what you had to say

so get that goofy look off your face cos we are not friends
Don't dare to embrace me we are nowhere near there
We are not friends

I don't really think any words cut it
I don't really think you grasp it
How deeply hurt I was
So careful what you say next

I deleted your number from my phone
So I didn't have the temptation to call
I blocked you on facebook again
Cos I didn't want to see what you had to say
I deleted your number from my phone
So I didn't have the temptation to call
I blocked you on facebook again
Cos I didn't want to see what you had to say

so get that goofy look off your face cos we are not friends
Don't dare to embrace me we are nowhere near there
We are not friends
so get that goofy look off your face cos we are not friends
Don't dare to embrace me we are nowhere near there
We are not friends
We are not friends
We are not friends
We are not friends
We are not friends
We are not friends
We are not friends
We are not friends
Track Name: Far Too Deep
She's such a pretty face but such a shame she is just a cheap whore
Just cheap whore
Playing with your heart like a stack of cards
Wear it like a crown
Wear it like a crown
I want it so I must have it
If it breaks me that's force of habit
Love is dangerous
You need a safety net
And a bulletproof vest just to be sure you can brace for the impact
Brace for the impact 1234 1234
Brace for the impact Brace for the impact 1234 1234

I got no dignity
I got no sense of me
I'm in far too deep
I'm in far too deep
I got no dignity
I got no sense of me
I'm in far too deep
I'm in far too deep
Wooah wooah wooah
Whooah wooah wooah
Whooah wooah wooah
Whooah wooah wooah
I got no dignity
I got no sense of me
I'm in far too deep
I'm in far too deep


Someone like you couldn't settle down with someone like me
You're always fooling around
What good is a dream that far fetched?
There is no comfort in that
When I turn my back I know you're fooling me
But when I look in your eyes I'm on my knees


I got no dignity
I got no sense of me
I'm in far too deep
I'm in far too deep
I got no dignity
I got no sense of me
I'm in far too deep
I'm in far too deep
I got no dignity
I got no sense of me
I'm in far too deep
I'm in far too deep
Wooah wooah wooah
Whooah wooah wooah
Whooah wooah wooah
Whooah wooah wooah
Whooah wooah wooah
Whooah wooah wooah
Whooah wooah wooah
Whooah wooah wooah
Track Name: With Both Hands
It's just another day at the office
You drown your sorrows inside your coffee cup
but they keep resurfacing don't they?
It feels like you're the only person in the room
but you are surrounded by people who feel the way you do
You just don't see it
All the harsh words that were spoken ring in your ears
Your heart is broken
You feel so alone but around the world it's the same story
You're not alone

You win some
You lose some
You gotta love like it's your last chance
You gotta grab life with both hands

You win some
You lose some
You gotta love like it's your last chance
You gotta grab life with both hands

Does your office chair feel like a prison cell?
I guess it's that time of the day where you
just wanna be home right now, right now
Technology starts to fail
The printer seems to have a mind of it's own
it's out for revenge, revenge
You can't wait for 5 o'clock
You try with the power of your mind to move the time on
but nothing seems to work

You win some
You lose some
You gotta love like it's your last chance
You gotta grab life with both hands

You win some
You lose some
You gotta love like it's your last chance
You gotta grab life with both hands
Track Name: Don't Make the Grade
Does the sentence start it's with a heavy heart?
Does the sentence contain an exclamation mark?
What exactly are you trying to say?
I know there is something you are trying hard to spit out?
I know you have been trying but the words just won't come out
I know you're tripping on your words and falling down
I know it needs to be said, said out loud

I guess what you are trying to say is I don't make the grade
Cos I can see it in you eyes you kinda feel betrayed
I guess what you are trying to say is I don't make the grade
Cos I can see it in your eyes that you're not in love with me

Oh it is such an indignity
Oh is this something I really need to hear?
If I close my eyes will it go away?
Or is it behaviour like that caused all the pain?

I guess what you are trying to say is I don't make the grade
Cos I can see it in you eyes you kinda feel betrayed
I guess what you are trying to say is I don't make the grade
Cos I can see it in your eyes that you're not in love with me
I guess what you are trying to say is I don't make the grade
Cos I can see it in you eyes you kinda feel betrayed
I guess what you are trying to say is I don't make the grade
Cos I can see it in your eyes that you're not in love with me
I don't make the grade
Track Name: A Little Longer
Are you the one with the tear stained eyes
or are you the one with the great big smile?
Are you the honest one or the liar?
Are you the pussy cat or the lion?
Who broke who's heart doesn't matter
It just wasn't meant to be
Accept and believe
the right one is out there somewhere

There will be somebody out there for you
There will be somebody out there for you
There will be somebody out there for you
There will be somebody out there for you

Hush now, don't cry
It's just life
Isn't love a beautiful thing when it goes right
Your soul mate is out there
True love awaits

You just gotta hang on a little longer
You just gotta hang on a little longer
You just gotta hang on a little longer
You just gotta hang on


There will be somebody out there for you
There will be somebody out there for you
There will be somebody out there for you
There will be somebody out there for you

I'll tell you a secret if you like
You ain't alone
You ain't alone


There will be somebody out there for you
There will be somebody out there for you
There will be somebody out there for you
There will be somebody out there for you
There will be somebody out there
Track Name: 22nd September
It's the 22nd of September 2016
I've been calling you on your phone
but it just rings and rings
And I need you ,I need you right now
Oh I ain't stupid I know what you're doing
You're with her again
And I've got to make the decision
to either stay with you or walk away
and find somebody like you

Cause I need somebody
I need somebody like you
Cause I need somebody
I need somebody like you

It don't matter where I go I can't run away
This feeling that I need you is so strong
I've been walking through broken glass and
just hoping that the cuts don't sting
But one day it'll come crashing down
There is only so long you can hold it all in
I'm past the point of break
Oh I can't hold it all in

Cause I need somebody
I need somebody like you
Cause I need somebody
I need somebody like you
Oh I need somebody
I need somebody like you
Oh cos I need somebody
Need somebody like you
Oh yeah I need somebody
I need somebody like you
Track Name: Fix This
I wish you would forgive me
But I know we are past that point
You're trying to forget me
I guess you regret what we had
I don't mean to be rude but I need to interrupt you there
I need to tell you that I'm still in love with you

Please forgive me
Please find it in your heart
Please forgive me don't tear our love apart
We can fix this
We can fix this
We can fix your broken heart
We can fix this
We can fix this
We can fix your broken heart

There is nothing that I wouldn't do for you
So please take one more chance on me



I don't even remember what the fight was about
But it got way out of control
But now you've had time to calm down
I know you think I don't listen
But you couldn't be more wrong
I hang on every word you say

Please forgive me
Please find it in your heart
Please forgive me don't tear our love apart
We can fix this
We can fix this
We can fix your broken heart
We can fix this
We can fix this
We can fix your broken heart
Please forgive me
Please find it in your heart
Please forgive me don't tear this love apart
We can fix this
We can fix this
We can fix your broken heart
We can fix this
We can fix this
We can fix your broken heart
Track Name: Hook, Line, and Sinker
I didn't think that love could reach me
When God was assigning partners
I thought he missed me out
He musta had some kinda doubts
But he gave me you
Yeah he gave me you
Yeah he gave me you
He gave me you

Hook, line, and sinker I fell for you
So intoxicating it's hard to believe that it's true
Hook, line, and sinker I fell for you
So intoxicating it's hard to believe that it's true

But I got you
I got you
But I got you
I got you

I don't know what I did to deserve someone like you
But I swear I will always, always be good
Good to you
Good to you
Good to you
Good to you


Hook, line, and sinker I fell for you
So intoxicating it's hard to believe that it's true
Hook, line, and sinker I fell for you
So intoxicating it's hard to believe that it's true

But I got you
I got you
Yeah I got you
I got you

I can't wait to get home to you every single night
All my kisses are reserved for you
They are your right
They are your right
They're your right
They are your right
They're your right

Hook, line, and sinker I fell for you
So intoxicating it's hard to believe that it's true
Hook, line, and sinker I fell for you
So intoxicating it's hard to believe that it's true

But I got you
I got you
But I got you
I got you
Track Name: Khaleesi
I wanna be clear where I stand
Cos I would do anything at your command
You are the captain I'll be your hand
It's like the Game of Thrones trying to win you back

I just need a little time
I could change your mind
I just need a little time
I could make you mine
I could make you mine
I could make you mine
I could make you mine again

What do you really want from life?
Tell me your secrets I will guard them with my life
I want to everything to you
I want to be your stars, your sun, and your moon
I want to be Khaleesi to you

I just need a little time
I could change your mind
I just need a little time
I could make you mine
I could make you mine
I could make you mine
I could make you mine again
I just need a little time
I could change your mind
I just need a little time
I could make you mine
I could make you mine
I could make you mine
I could make you mine again

I could make you mine
I could make you mine
I could make you mine again
I could make you mine
I could make you mine
I could make you mine again
Track Name: Uncharted Waters
I tried to tell you how I felt
But no poetry exists that sums it up
beautifully enough
I tried to show you how deeply I felt
but maybe I went about it the wrong way
But my heart was in the right place
Baby we are standing in uncharted waters
Maybe we oughtta start swimming now
before we both drown

Baby I gotta tell ya
Baby I gotta tell you
That I love you
Baby I gotta tell you
Baby I gotta tell you
That I love you

This is a first and last cos I don't ever want to say those words to anyone else
If it's a test I need to pass cos I need you in my life
I need you now, and forever
And when judgement comes for me I will say that I did what I needed to
keep, your love


Baby I gotta tell ya
Baby I gotta tell ya
That I love you
Baby I gotta tell ya
Baby I gotta tell ya
That I love you
Baby I gotta tell ya
Baby I gotta tell ya
That I love you
I love you
