Track Name: Little Angel
You braved the storm and survived it
You've been the wars my friend
Life has often been so cruel to you
but one day this all will change
Oh little angel
Oh little angel
Your time to shine will come
Your time to shine will come
your time will come, it'll come
your time will come

You've been the light in my darkest moments
I only wish I could be there for you
Don't give up sweet baby, life owes you a rich reward

Oh little angel
Oh little angel
Your time to shine will come
Your time to shine will come
it'll come
it'll come
your time to shine will come
it'll come
it'll come
your time will come
Track Name: Times of Trouble (live)
In times of hardship you were always there
comforting soldifying your presence was always felt
In times when I cried myself to sleep it was always your shoulder I cried on

Where would I be if it weren't for you?
How would I have survived without you?
For you've been my rock, my crack, and hope
you've held me up when I began to fall

In times of trouble my feet never touched the ground because you carried me in your arms
In times of trouble I never felt any kind of pain because you were my remedy my morphine
In times of trouble you've always been there for me


And what could substitute for your love?
I doubt there is any drug strong enough
My base, my lover and bestfriend
Your whole life took a backseat for mine

In times of trouble my feet never touched the ground cos you carried me in your arms
In times of trouble I never felt any kind of pain because you were my remedy my morphine
In times of trouble you've always been there for me
Track Name: If I Could
Who do you want to blame?
You walk away and just pretend
well everyday is the same
we all know that ourselves
Oh you keep on saying I could save you
but it's long wait for me

If I could
Save you for just one night
How could explain?
that I'm forever trying
It don't make sense
If I could save your life for what it means
If I could

We all had to fade it's part of life
just a game we play
Nobody else knows why
if I could save you for just one night
if I could
save you tonight

if I could save you I would
I'd save you tonight
If I could yeah I would
I'd save you tonight
Track Name: Too Late
Walking down the street today nothing means the same to me anymore
Looking round there's not a face a recognise here
People I used to love, Places I used to go they are all go
they are all gone

It's too late, too late
I left it too late
It's too late, too late
I left it too late


Emptiness can eat you up
soul searching that never stops
you don't know where you are until you are lost
this town used to home but it's not home anymore, it's nowhere

It's too late, far too late
I left it too late
It's too late, far too late
I left it too late

Left it too late, much too late
Track Name: At Home
Inside my head I'm free again
Passing all the clouds above
I don't have a single doubt
I did all my own way
got there in the end
it could me more than most of you
but it was well spent

I'm in paradise
I'm in paradise inside my own head
I'm in paradise
Paradise
I'm at home inside my own head
paradise
paradise
I'm at home inside my own head

Meanwhile you live in your private hell
don't think of asking me for help
cos I ain't forgotten

Hey hey what did you expect me to say
afterall is fair in love and hate

I'm in paradise
I'm doing fine
I'm at home inside my own head
Paradise
I'm at home inside my own head
This is Paradise
Track Name: Alright
She feels so lost like she don't fit in
She never found anywhere she belongs
She spent her whole life searching
but she don't know what she's searching for

It'll be alright
It'll work just fine
It'll be alright
It'll work just fine

It'll be alright
It'll be alright
It'll be alright
It'll be alright


He lost the only one he loves
He said he could never love another
She is the only one he wants
but she's in love with somebody else

It'll be alright
It'll work just fine
It'll be alright
It'll work just fine

It'll be alright
It'll be alright
It'll be alright
It'll be alright

It'll be okay
It'll work out in the end
It'll be alright
It'll work out in the end

It'll be alright
It'll be alright
It'll be alright
It'll be alright
it'll work out alright baby wait and see
it'll work out just fine you wait and see
Track Name: The Handbag Wars
You look at me like I'm the one that stole the shine away from the sun
then gone and turned the rain on
It's not my fault your hair is getting wet after you spent an hour doing it
so solve the problem just go bald
So now you take a swipe at me with your handbag you miss
and fall flat laughing to the ground
Now you're really paved at me
you stare at me like I'm the one that just stole your last peice of bubblegum

Oh yeah now it's war
the handbag war
Oh yeah now it's war
the hangbag war

Your beedy eyes get on my nerves
you stare at me until insanity claims me as it's own
so I throw my shoe at you aim for your head and pray that it will knock you out
Your bestfriend jumps on my back, she is biting and pulling at my hair

All the guys they think it's great finally the girls are getting down
and sorting all their issues
oh my god now it's war

the handbag war
Oh yeah now it's war

Handbags at 50 paces
I hate you and hate me
so now we are kinda even
Friday ends suddenly
when passing drag queens jump in
and we are both beaten to a pulp

oh my god now it's war
the handbag war
Oh yeah now it's war
the handbag war
war
Track Name: A Natural High
You said that I was drama queen
afraid of the quiet life
You said I could never be seen tripping on a natural high
but I'm happy when you're out of my sight
yeah I'm happy when you're not on mind


This girl wants to live
This girl wants to ride
This girl wants to enjoy life on a natural high
This girl wants to live
This girl wants to ride
This girl wants to enjoy life on a natural high
on a natural high

You said my behaviour was outta line
You said I act like I'm out my mind
You ask what pills I am taking and
I reply

This girl wants to live
This girl wants to ride
This girl wants to enjoy life
This girl wants to live
This girl wants to ride
This girl wants to enjoy life on a natural high
on a natural high, high

This girl wants to live
This girl wants to ride
This girl wants to enjoy life on a natural high
on a natural high, high
on a natural high, high high
on a natural high, high high
Track Name: Why are you Still Here?
You win this time we'll play it your way
I know in the end I'll be the one to bare the hate and shame
You always threaten to leave and I wait for day
and sometimes I wonder why

if I'm that bad why why do you love me?
if I'm that bad why are you still here?
why are you still here?

I'm trying to explain but you dont hear a single word I say
I'm trying to keep my cool but I'm aching in silence
And it goes to show the more you give the less you recieve
Yeah it goes to show the more you give the less you feel

if I'm that bad why why do you love me?
yeah if I'm that bad why are you still here?
why are you still here?

If I'm as bad as you say why are you still hanging around
