Pirates 03:10
PIRATES Twenty five, divorced, looking for a recourse Buy a boat, sail away, no time for remorse Live, work, eat, drink, sleep, f**k, rethink Planning on travelling while I'm unravelling Sell up, sell out, no concessions, imagine no possessions It's easy advice, an idea for life, the future is bright A taste of Paradise Oh as we sail round the islands on the voyage of a lifetime On the wine-coloured ocean, we'll be drunk as pirates Of the Caribbean, or the Aegean or just the drunks in the park

High Barnet 04:02
HIGH BARNET You were waiting in a restaurant He was waiting for you by the door Promised you the sky and you fell from it You got so much more than you bargained for Chorus: Now you'll wait all your life, but you'll have to pay the price But it takes so many years to comprehend You can borrow all your dreams from those trashy magazines But you'll have to give them back, in the end. He would count the stars up in the sky for you He would charm the birds out of the trees All these things and more he would do for you While you picked up all the pieces of your dreams (Chorus) The holy gatherings, the smoke and paraffin The idols you would burn The sunny afternoons, when conversations turn To lessons you should learn

Once Bitten 02:51
ONCE BITTEN Once bitten, twice shy Fools seldom differ with the give and the take of the tide Once bitten, twice shy Fools seldom differ with the give and the take of the tide Between a rock and a hard place Between the devil and the sandy shore A ship is safe in the harbour, but that's not what ships are for Once bitten, twice shy Fools seldom differ with the give and the take of the tide The past won't be your future, because the only place to be is the place where the water from the river meets the sea Once bitten, twice shy Fools seldom differ with the give and the take of the tide Fools seldom differ with the give and the take of the tide

WEDNESDAY MAN He was a thin man, stayed at No.5, Waiting for Thursday to arrive Slept on carpet, with cushions on the floor He put a fur coat up against the door Dead flowers, he kept 'em in a jar He liked McCartney, Venus and Mars Left the lights on with no-one at home He spent hours on the phone Chorus: Thursday Friday Saturday nights he's out Sunday's dead and nothing to shout about Monday Tuesday never meets your expectation But we don't care 'cause we love Wednesday Man Patriotic, kept a portrait of the Queen Alabaster, a tortured figurine He took pictures, remind himself of home Bright colours, monochrome Chorus Rpt Vs 2 Chorus x 2

Wotya 03:27
WOTYA A man came down from the mountain, manifesto in his hand He said Brothers, Sisters I see hardship on the road to the promised land He said bathe in the gold that flows through the city and out to the shining sea Black, white, rich or poor come down to the river with me In the kingdom of the blind, there's a one-eyed man with an axe to grind He's gonna build a wall to keep out the weather and the young and the old And the wind of change that blows Across the land of plenty where the milk and the honey flows Wotya gonna do about it Who you gonna stand beside Get up and shout about it Don't sit and be dissatisfied

Saw A Girl 03:04
SAW A GIRL Saw a man I used to know consumed by all his long-agos And music on the radio wallpapering his life He spoke of how he changed his mind and left his other life behind Refusing to be defined by someone else's dream Right time, right place, right girl, waiting for the weekend Replace that face, pull back the curtain, open the door and Here comes Barry, with his head held high Here comes Barry, leaving yesterday behind. We heard about the sordid case and someone else's guilty face Passed judgement on the sad remains of shattered lives He sits alone at home and waits amidst the coffee cups and plates Whilst studiously contemplating his Jimmy Choos Right time, right place, right girl, waiting for the weekend Replace that face, put on the dress and open the door and Here comes Barry, with his head held high Here comes Barry, leaving yesterday behind. Right time, right place, right girl, waiting for the weekend Replace that face, put on the dress and open the door and Here comes Barry, with his head held high Here comes Barry, leaving yesterday behind.

Promises 03:10
PROMISES I don't know what's in your head And I can't make you well And I can't make those promises, 'Cause only time will tell I can't hear or understand The song that sings to you But I can see all the love That's shining out of you I can't turn back time for you To heal those wounds and scars But I can share your burden When the world's too much to bear Yesterday has left it's mark on you Tomorrow's yet unknown But I'll be hear to talk to you So you won't feel alone

15 MINUTES OF SHAME Charming smile, beguiled Invited back to the Country pile Deals done in respectable style In your 15 minutes of shame Sharp suit, new recruit You're never too small to contribute Or bring the family into disrepute In your 15 minutes of shame You can choose your sin but you can never choose your fate Don't make love by the garden gate, Love may be blind but the neighbours ain't so All's fair in love and war, but that's not what we came here for Another consequence for you to ignore in your 15 minutes of shame You can choose your sin but you can never choose your fate Don't make love by the garden gate Love may be blind but the neighbours ain't so Be mindful of the words you use, Some sit in judgement, some stand accused Some feel better while some feel abused In your 15 minutes of shame The walk you walk The time it takes The talk you talk The love you make The deal you break The smile you fake The hand you shake The deal you break

Lorna Stone 04:27
LORNA STONE You painted pictures, they filled a space on the wall They look so cold and uninviting We made arrangements but you.. You cancelled them all You made us all seem so incredibly dull I took a walk past places you used to go Where the smell of cut grass was intoxicating Took out a picture of you, you look just the same And no-one would ever know that you had lost your sense and sensibility Chorus: Lorna Stone why don't they leave your life alone Images that linger from your dreams are all your own Lorna Stone you never write, you never phone All your friends are waiting here as you stand there alone All of your friends laid a place at the table, But you never appeared so we finished it all. Chorus La lalalala la (Lorna Stone)

ON THE UPSIDE Chorus: 'Cause on the upside, feel the good times inside Outside lets move before the landslide Washes us away day to day 'Cause on the upside, let love kick out the mean times Those dark and in-between times Let it liven up your day every day Relieved of her money by a man at the fair Well she went to the beach there was nobody there The tide was in, the stars were out So she took off all her clothes and she walked about Chorus Radio programmes, fathers and daughters, Conversation the football slaughters You're still signed up to yesterday's slogan It's not your bag but it's a bag for life. Chorus
