Track Name: This World
I've walked in your shoes
Took a walk along the Queenie
Stood and looked at the bridge
where a man fell into the water
I knew the man who pressed the button
And he had to learn to live with it
Whether he was a good man or not
makes no difference
What is done is done
Our memories are short so we can carry
the burden that our lives have become
But there is still beauty if you look for it
You need to open your eyes and your heart
and you'll see it

This world is beautiful
This world is cruel
You just need to embrace it all
like it embraces you
This world is beautiful
This world is cruel
You just need to embrace it all
like it embraces you
This world is beautiful
This world is cruel
You just need to embrace it all
like it embraces you


It's the mother holding the child she thought she'd never
have
It's the tears of joy she cries
The laughter at life's comedy
The smile on the face of the dying man
as he thinks of the irony of his life
It's everything and nothing
Something that we can't touch
yet we all possess

This world is beautiful
This world is cruel
You just need to embrace it all
like it embraces you
This world is beautiful
This world is cruel
You just need to embrace it all
like it embraces you
This world is beautiful
This world is cruel
You just need to embrace it all
like it embraces you
This world is beautiful
This world is cruel
You just need to embrace it all
like it embraces you

This world is beautiful
This world is cruel
This world is beautiful
This world is cruel
You just need to embrace it all
like it embraces you
Track Name: Know-it-all
Please forgive my outburst
I don't often lose my temper
But you really push all my buttons
You're too intelligent for your own good
You psychoanalyse then reply
You always fire with such precision
You use sarcasm like it's a blanket
The world is on fire but you are
safe under it

What I'm trying to say is you're a know-it-all
But one day you'll take a great fall
And it's gonna hurt cos of the height
You've elevated
What I'm trying to say is you're a know-it-all
But one day you'll take a great fall
And it's gonna hurt cos of the height
You've elevated yourself up to

You have best friends at each others throats
You set them up then you love to boast
We are all just pawns in your chess game
Every single one of us end up getting played
There ain't no escape from you
Ain't no secret you can't extract
And there never is a witty enough
come back to stop you in your tracks

What I'm trying to say is you're a know-it-all
But one day you'll take a great fall
And it's gonna hurt cos of the height
You've elevated yourself up to
What I'm trying to say is you're a know-it-all
But one day you'll take a great fall
And it's gonna hurt cos of the height
You've elevated yourself up to

Oh it's gonna hurt when you take a fall
Oh it's gonna hurt when you finally
come tumbling down

What I'm trying to say is you're a know-it-all
But one day you'll take a great fall
And it's gonna hurt cos of the height
You've elevated
What I'm trying to say is you're a know-it-all
But one day you're gonna take a great fall
And it's gonna hurt cos of the height
You've elevated yourself up to
Track Name: Best Friends Forever
Well my friend you've had some hard times
But if you need somebody just pick up the phone
and call me
If you call me I'll drop everything and come running
Through thick or thin
Night or day
If you feel low I'll be there by your side
If you need to cry I'll wipe away the tears
If you feel scared I'll be holding your hand
If you feel happy I'll be smiling at your side
I'll be smiling at your side

I'll be your best friend
I'll be the best friend that you'll ever have

I'll be your best friend
I'll be the best friend that you'll ever have

If she breaks your heart I'll clean the pieces up
I'll superglue it back together again
I'll send you all my affections when you are low
I'll be there for all the good times too
To congratuate and Commiserate
You'll never need to ask who's side I'm on
All my loyalty belongs to you
My heart and soul I gift to you

I'll be your best friend
I'll be the best friend you'll ever have
Best Friends Forever
Best Friends Forever
I'll be your best friend
I'll be the best friend you'll ever have

Track Name: Romantically
I came to see you to straighten things out
I didn't want to leave things the way they were
Didn't want to have any bad feeling between us
Didn't mean to put my foot in my mouth
I should have thought before
I said it out loud
Had no idea it would cause a crisis between us
Some things are better off not said but
I tend to cross the line then regret it
I know you are looking for a sweet
sweet wife but all I am is a friend
who tries to show you I love you
but not step over the line

Of course I love you but romantically
I'm not into you like you're into me
Of course I love you but romantically
I'm not into you like you're into me
Of course I love you but romantically
I'm not a match for you
You're just not right for me
Of course I love you but romantically
I'm not a match for you
You're just not right for me

When you touch my hand I should be hearing music
playing in my head but I don't
I just see you as a friend and I don't think that will change
It doesn't matter what you do what you say or how you dress
It's a constant that will never change
I value your friendship too much to risk anyways
I want you in my life as a friend
I need you in my life as a friend
Oh Please be my friend

Of course I love you but romantically
I'm not into you like you're into me
Of course I love you but romantically
I'm not into you like you're into me
Of course I love you but romantically
I'm not a match for you
You're just not right for me
Of course I love you but romantically
I'm not a match for you
You're just not a match for me

Of course I love you but romantically
I'm not into you like you're into me
Of course I love you but romantically
I'm not into you like you're into me
Of course I love you but romantically
I'm not a match for you
You're just not right for me
Of course I love you but romantically
I'm not a match for you
You're just not right for me
Track Name: Out on the Town
out out on the town
out out on the town
out out on the town
out out on the town
on the town
out out on the town
out out on the town


I used to love a night on the town with you
We used to go round the bars and clubs
And drink until all our money had ran out
We used to dance on the dancefloor
Singing at the top of our lungs
We used to live we used to laugh we used to love

You and me out on the town
You and me out on the town tonight
out out on the town
out out on the town
out out on the town
out out on the town

After the nightclub closes the casino is open all hours
we used to talk about everything for hours
You used to say you're gonna quit your job
and pursue your dreams one day
And I would tell you about my latest crush
You would listen then say
it's never gonna work out chick no way

You and me out on the town
You and me out on the town tonight
out out on the town
out out on the town
out out on the town
out out on the town

Have one more drink with me
Let's toast to us

You and me out on the town
You and me out on the town tonight
Track Name: A Big Mistake
Don't put words in my mouth I'm in enough
trouble without you spinning webs of doubt everywhere
you go
Forgiveness is a touchy subject with you as you expect
a lot of forgiveness for you but you don't leave me with
much wiggle room
I stand by my original statement that I'm not perfect
but I'm trying my best why ain't that good enough for you?

Yes I made a big mistake
And Yes I've got to live with it
But I will try to be a better person for it
Yes I made a big mistake
And Yes I've got to live with it
But I will try to be a better person for it

sticks and stones will break my bones
Names will emotionally scar me
Every little digs hurts
I'll remember them all
I'll use it as a smokescreen
I'll use it as a smokescreen
I won't let you know how I'm really feeling

Yes I made a big mistake
And Yes I've got to live with it
But I will try to be a better person for it
Yes I made a big mistake
And Yes I've got to live with it
But I will try to be a better person for it
Yes I made a big mistake
And Yes I've got to live with it
But I will try to be a better person for it
Yes I made a big mistake
And Yes I've got to live with it
But I will try to be a better person for it
Track Name: A Little Victory
Got a head full of doubts
A pocket full of coins
Got a heart full of endless possibilities
You say live and enjoy life but
all that I have done is dig a deeper hole for myself
each and every day
I'm looking for answers in all the wrong places
And I even know what I'm throwing away
Don't quote lines from the bible
Cos none of them apply here
I don't think I could be saved anyway
It's a case of survival
I'm getting by by the skin of my teeth
I'm coasting on the edge of my seat

I'm just getting by
Everyday is a little victory
I'm just surviving
Another day another victory

So tell me about what it is that I can do for you?
How can I be of assistance to you?
Maybe together we can make a difference
Guess we spend our lives looking for proof
that our lives have been worthwhile
Maybe we lose ourselves searching for the truth
When the answers we seek have always been in view
just we couldn't see it for looking straight at it

I'm getting by
Everyday is a little victory
I'm just surviving
Another day another victory

The harder I try
The more I realise
that a stranger's smile
Can lift the weight of the world
straight off my shoulders
Can take the pain out of my heart
If I give you my hand will you let me help you?
If I can love you could you love me back too?
Could you love me back too?

I'm just getting by
Everyday is a little victory
I'm just surviving
Another day another victory
Track Name: Always
I hold myself back when I just wanna dive in
I bite my tongue whe I just wanna scream
I act so reserved I'm sure there is an extrovert trapped
in my waiting to be released

As if your love could save me
I've wanted your love so long I almost lost faith
But I still remember how it feels
And I will love you always

I take a deep breath and start again
I close my eyes and count to ten
It was a long time ago
But I can't forget how I felt when I was with you
Your arms felt like home to me
Your kisses taste like bliss to me

As if your love could rescue me
I've wanted your love so long I almost lost faith
But I still remember how it feels
And I will love you always
Track Name: Reach for the Stars
What a magnificent mess I've made of my life
The only thing keeping me going is your smile
When you're faced with hard times think of me
Think of these words I want you to succeed
I want your dreams to come true

Reach for the stars
Oh reach for the stars
And breathe
Reach for the stars
Oh reach for the stars for me

Don't let anybody get in your way
It don't matter what they say
keep you head up
You've gotta be strong
And if you fall get back up again
Don't dwell on things that you can't change
Don't ever lock away your dreams
Be inspirational be aspiring be all that you can be
I'll always be behind you to catch you if you fall

Reach for the stars
Oh reach for the stars
And breathe
Reach for the stars
Oh reach for the stars for me

When the time comes I hope you get a moment of glory
I hope it's more than just 15 minutes of fame
I hope it's everything you dreamt it would be
and so much more
And I hope that good luck follows you everywhere you go
I hope you are loved
I hope you know that you're the one thing
that I love more than anything

Reach for the stars
Oh reach for the stars
And breathe
Reach for the stars
Oh reach for the stars for me
Reach for the stars
Oh reach for the stars
Reach for the stars
Oh reach for the stars for me
Track Name: All the way to the Top
She's got the bluest eyes I've ever seen
A taste of paradise, so serene
She's got a magnetic smile
It attracts all she meets
You can't help but love her
But how does she feel?
When the spotlight is off
When the music stops
Who is behind that mountain of makeup?
Do her real words get lost in translation?

She climbed all the way to the top just to
have her whole life criticised
She climbed all the way to the top find
that she was all alone
She climbed all the way to the top
but the spotlight is never off
She climbed all the way to the top
to find she's alone

A night of ectasy with a stranger
Tomorrow it will be in every paper
That is all she has got
Her little broken heart cannot be contained
She's got her entourage they all remain
But not one of them is a real friend
And that is what you need when you climb to the top
You need somebody you can trust


She climbed all the way to the top just to
have her whole life criticised
She climbed all the way to the top find
she was alone
She climbed all the way to the top
but the spotlight is never off
She climbed all the way to the top
to find she's alone
She climbed all the way to the top just to
have her whole life criticised
She climbed all the way to the top find
that she's alone
She climbed all the way to the top
Track Name: On Your Doorstep
I thought that love could save me
but I don't know if that is true yet
Did I put all my eggs in the wrong basket?
Did I take too long to listen to my heart as it said
You are the one, You are the one, the only one
You are the one, You are the one, the only one

Here I stand on your doorstep
Demanding that you love love me back
Here I stand and I ain't moving
Until you tell me how you really feel

I understand if you don't love me
If you are sure that you don't want me
Just let me know and I'll let you go
Don't spare my feelings
Just tell me the truth
Speak from your heart
Speak from your heart

Here I stand on your doorstep
Demanding that you love love me back
Here I stand and I ain't moving
Until you tell me how you really feel
Here I stand on your doorstep
Demanding that you love love me back
Here I stand and I ain't moving
Until you tell me how you really feel
How you really feel
How you really feel
How you really feel
Just tell me how you feel
