Track Name: Checking in
It's been ten years, ten years of this
I loved you truely but you always disguised what you felt
If it's true well baby let it show
Don't go wasting no more time on the circus sideshow

When you come round are you just checking to see that I'm still here?
That I survived your cruelty
Just checking that I'm still alive. Just checking that I survived
Just checking that I'm still alive. Just checking that I survived your cruelty

Are you gonna torture me some more or, or set me free?
It seems like freedom is a rumour that I never see
Cos I've been shackled to you for so long, tied up and it's all gone wrong
Just checking in to see that I'm still alive
Just checking that I survived your recent cruelty. Yeah I'm alive
Yeah I'm alive
Oh I survived, oh I'm alive
Oh I survived, yeah I'm alive
Oh I survived your cruelty
Oh I survived your cruelty so you thought you would check back and see I'm still alive
Oh I survived your cruelty
Oh I survived your cruelty and so you thought you would check back that I'm still alive
I'm alive
I'm alive
And I survived your cruelty, oh you wanted to see if I was still alive after all you've done to me
I'm still holding on
Track Name: Permanent damage
One day you'll look in her eyes and you'll know
One day you'll feel sick 'cause you'll know that you let the wrong one go and kept the wrong ones close
One day you'll know, one day you'll know

One day you'll travel round to my door but I will not live here anymore
One day I won't be around no
One day I'll walk purgatory to escape you
One day I'll fail and I'll fall apart

Citing your name as the reason
Citing your name for deciet and some
Citing your name as the reason
The reason I came undone

One day I won't be around
One day I won't be around
One day I won't be around and you'll need me
Oh one day I won't be around
One day you'll be sorry
You'll be sorry I'm sure but I won't be available for apologies then
One day you'll be sorry, you'll be sorry I'm sure
I won't be around I'll be broken by then
I won't be around I'll be undone by then
One day you'll be sorry but I won't be here
One day you'll be sorry but I won't be here
Track Name: I don't think you're cute anymore
I never thought that was where our story would end but it is
It is a fullstop it’s an exclamation mark
it's a point of rejection we've reached
It’s the point where forgiveness does not apply
Oh don’t say you’re sorry cos I’m not listening now
It’s the point where I’d unwrite every love song that I wrote for you
And replace them with songs about all of the wrongs
The wrongs that you do

Cos I don’t think you’re cute anymore
No I don’t think you’re cute anymore
No I don’t think you’re cute anymore
Oh I don’t think you’re cute anymore
Oh it’s not cute, oh it’s just not cute, it’s not cute to be so rude
Oh it’s not cute, it’s just not cute it’s just not cute to be that rude

This is the point where forgiveness does not apply
This is the point where you cannot buy affection from someone you cannot afford
Oh this is the point where no forgiveness applies
Oh this is the end of the line for us
One fullstop
One fullstop
Cos it’s not cute to be so mean to boot somebody that ain’t fighting back
Oh it’s not cute to be so rude


I don’t think you’re cute anymore
I don’t think you’re cute anymore
it’s just not cute, it’s just not cute , it’s just not cute to be so rude
it’s just not cute, it’s just not cute, it’s just not cute to be so rude
There is nothing cute about you at all
I take what I said back
I break those words

Oh it’s not just not cute, it’s just not cute be so rude
It’s just not cute to be so rude
Track Name: I miss you already
I talk a good fight but I'm not a fighter
I talk a good fight it's all bravado
I talk a good fight I talk like I would hurt you
I talk a good fight but I am gentle
talk a good fight I talk like I am cruel
I talk a good fight but I just love you

Miss you already yeah I do
I miss you already yeah I do (every inch of you)
I miss you already yeah I do (every inch of you)

Good luck, good luck, good luck
pretending you're happy when you're not
I said good luck cos you will need it
I said goodbye but I've said goodbye before
Look at it now
Could we repair this?
Now it's come so undone
And so I say it was nice knowing you at times
At times it's been a real shame (you've been so cruel)

I miss you already yeah I do (every inch of you)
I miss you already yeah I do (every inch of you)
I miss you already yeah I do (every inch of you)

I'll miss your smile the most
I'll miss your eyes that glimmer oh
I'll miss your smile the most
And when it's time I guess I'll let go
And maybe oneday you'll regret all that you've done

I miss you already yeah I do (every inch of you)
I miss you already yeah I do (every inch of you)
I miss you already yeah I do (every inch of you)
Track Name: Give you up
You're bad news for my mental health
You're bad news for the physical me
You're bad news and I know it but something keeps bringing you here
And I don't want to send you away but you never seem to want to stay
And I just do know how much more I can take of this running round and running away

Everytime a stranger stands behind me I wish it was you
I wish it was you about to wrap your arms around me
And that's nothing but the truth

Wanna give you up
Wanna give you up but I can't help it
Oh I need you
Oh Oh if I only could give you up
Oh Oh if I only could give you up
Oh Oh if I only could give you up
Oh Oh if I only could give you up
Oh Oh if I only could give you up I'd be free, I'd be free
Oh Oh if I only could give you up I'd be free free free
Oh Oh if I only could give you up
Oh how I'd be so free
Oh Oh if I only could give you up
Oh Oh if I only could give you up
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh hell if I only could give you up
Oh yeah if I only could give you up
Oh well I wish I could give you up
Oh yeah if I only could give you up

Oh oh everytime somebody gets close I wish it were you behind me
Wishing it were you about to wrap your arms around me
If only I could give you up
If only I could give you up
Oh well if I only could
Oh well if I only could give you up
Yeah I'd be free if I give you up
Oh I'd be free if I give you up
Oh if only I could give you up
Oh if only I could give you up
Oh yeah if only I could give you up
Oh yeah if only I could give you up
Oh yeah if only I could give you up
Up up up up
Give you up up up
Give you up up up
Give you up up up
Give you up up up
If only I could give you up
Oh yeah
Track Name: Nemesis
I stand where you stood
I live as you do
Well some might say I'm your nemesis
I've never seen it that way
I've always seen it that we weren't competing anyways
But things will change, things will change
One day I'll step up to you
Things will change, things will change
One day I'll step right up to you

oh I'll be your nemesis, I'll be your nemesis
one day I'll be your nemesis

It'll be a thousand miles away from the days when I tried to be your friend

I'll be your nemesis, I'll be your nemesis
I'll be your nemesis then
I'll be your nemesis, I'll be your nemesis
I'll be your nemesis then
We won't be friends then

Think about hardly think about what you've done to me
Before you cast some judgement on me you made yourself a monster
Would you really like the world to know?
Would you really like the world to know?
We can take it there
We can show them all
Cos I’ll be your nemesis, I'll be your nemesis
I’ll be your nemesis
I’ll be your nemesis

One day I’ll step up to the line
One day I’ll step up to you
I will be your nemesis
I will be your nemesis

One day I’ll step up to you
I’ll be your nemesis
Like you want me to
I’ll be your nemesis
I’ll be your nemesis
Like you want me to
I’ll be the best enemy you’ll have
I’ll be the best enemy you’ll have
I’ll be the best enemy you’ll have
I’ll be the best fight you ever fought
I’ll be your nemesis
I could be the best enemy you’ll ever have
I’ll be your nemesis
I’ll be the best enemy you could dream for
I could be nemesis
I could be nemesis
I could be the best enemy you ever have
Track Name: Time wasted loving you
You don't need to pretend no more
You don't need to lead me on I see it
I wasted my time trying to love a fool like you
I wasted my time trying to be what you needed

Time wasted loving you I won't get back
Time wasted loving you I won't get back, I get it

You don't need to put another knife in me
There's plenty here all along my back
You've hurt me

Cos I know that real love don't feel like this
Oh yeah I know that real love don't hurt like this
Oh yeah I know that real love don't feel like this
Oh yeah I know that real love don't hurt like this
Oh yeah I know that real love don't hurt like this
Don't feel like this

Time wasted loving you
Won't get it back and I know it ain't easy to move on
Throw my hands in air I swear one more fool like you and I will break apart
At least I know, at least I know it don't hurt

Real love don't feel like this
Time wasted loving you
Real love don't hurt this
love, don't hurt like this
All those lines we crossed
Oh you hurt me more
You are so damn cruel
Yeah you hurt me more regardless of what I do
And I know real love don't feel like this
Yeah I know real love don't hurt like this
Track Name: When I wanna let go
Is cruelty the only language you understand?
You won't let me go from the web you've weaved
You say you don't want me but then you are outside my door
What am I meant to think if you don't speak?
My friends say I got let go I gotta move on
but I keep wondering what you want

Why do you keep turning up everytime I try to let you go?
Is there something inside that knows everytime I'm trying to let go?
Why do you keep turning up everytime I try to let you go?
Why do you keep turning up everytime I try to let you go?
You're standing there

Oh is betrayal the only thing you excel at?
Would you not know how to have a happy ever after?
And if you chose her why come round?

Oh did you know that I was trying to let you go?
Does something always tell you when I'm trying to let you go?
How do you know everytime I'm trying to let you go?
You always turn up when I try let go
When I wanna let go
When I'm wanna let go you're always there
How do you know when I'm trying to let go?
How do you know when I wanna let go?
How do you know when I wanna let go?
How do you know when I wanna let go?
How do you know when I wanna let go?
You're always standing there
Track Name: Your usual tricks
Wouldn't be tragic if I love you but you're too insecure to believe it
Wouldn't be tragic if I gave my heart to the biggest ba*tard in this earth
Wouldn't be tragic if the above was you
Wouldn't be tragic if this was a love hate cycle
Wouldn't be tragic if I see you in my dreams each night
Wouldn't be tragic if I knew you dream of me too
Wouldn't be tragic if you destroy me just to keep appearances up
Wouldn't be tragic if I told the truth about you
Wouldn't be tragic if everybody knew
Oh wouldn't it be cruel

Oh yeah if you've really let me go why are you so desperate just to look at me?
Yeah if you've really have let me go why are you still up to your usual tricks?

Wouldn't be tragic if I knew betrayal was your favourite pastime yet I still trusted you with my life
Wouldn't be tragic if my world revolved around you
Wouldn't be tragic if you insult the only one you love
Wouldn't be tragic if I heard the things you wouldn't want me to hear
Wouldn't be tragic if that info was leaked

yeah if you've really let me go why are you so desperate just to look at me?
Yeah if you've really have let me go why are you still up to your usual tricks?
Wouldn't be tragic if I still loved you
Wouldn't be tragic if nobody else would do
Wouldn't be tragic if I kept coming back
Wouldn't be tragic if you kept being cruel
Track Name: love 2 hate
Never thought it was possible that I could hate you
It's implausable but here we are and I'm hoping the worst for you
oh for the first time in my life I mean the bad words that come out my mouth

Said it's implausable but yeah it's true you made me hate you
Oh it's impossible yeah it's true you made me hate you
Oh you and your thugs oh grow up
You're such lame *swearword missing -d#ckheads*
Oh try to be me, make some money

Oh it's implausable but you turned my love to hate
Oh it's impossible oh you turned my love to hate
Oh it's implausable oh you turned my love to hate
Oh it's impossible but here we stand you turned my love to hate

Looking round anyone else will do now
I won't be looking back for you
Oh you were my addiction but I just kicked you
Oh well this, Oh well this bruises will remind me
Oh well this Oh well this confusion

Thought it couldn't happen but here I am
I've come to hate you


Oh it's impossible not possible

Oh it's implausable it's impossible

No one wants to love a thug
No one wants to love a thug
No one wants to love a thug
I've been there I won't go back again
Track Name: It didn't need to be like this
It's a whole year later since you broke my heart in two
And I've stood still just waiting here for you
Like the burning London my heart screams for love
Well there ain't no peace here
Hate burns
The burning London my heart screams for love
Like the burning London tumbling down

Well you made your mind up but you change so easily
You're not sure of what you want so choose to destroy any trace of love
To burn that burn that bridge I guess
Well you have burned that bridge

Like the burning London my heart screams for love
Like the burning London my heart screams for love

Oh it didn't have to be so
Oh it didn't have to be so

Like the burning London my heart screams for love
Like the burning London my heart comes undone
Oh it didn't need to be like this
Oh it didn't need to be like this
Like the burning London my heart screams for love
Like the burning London my heart screams for love
Oh it didn't have to be like this
Oh it didn't have to be like this
Oh Like London my heart screams for love
Oh Like London my heart screams for love
Oh it didn't have to be like this
