Track Name: Dark Days
Dark Days

What do you do?
On dark days
what do you do?
On dark days
which way do you turn
and who do you call
is there a light to follow
on dark days

I heard a baby laugh at a funeral
and it made me smile
and I guess this gave me hope
it gave me hope

what do you do?
On dark days
what do you do?
On dark days
I'll reach out my hand
and hope somebody holds it
got myself a candle
now I need a light

green shoots burst from the earth
on soil burned black
and I guess this gives me hope
it gives me hope.

And on a dark day
I called you and you said come around
then I could see
I was not alone
and I guess this gave me hope
it gave me hope.
Track Name: Dream Together
I think of you in the world today
we're far way but never been closer

take my hand we will dream together
hope and pray we will dream together

a light will be born to pierce the dark
it is my hope, my reason, to be alive today

take my hand we will dream together
hope and pray we will dream together

the sun is staring to rise, the clouds they disappear
I touch your soft face and wipe away that tear

take my hand we will dream together
hope and pray we will dream together

take my hand we will dream together
hope and pray we will dream together
Track Name: The Boxer
The Boxer

The boxer steps into the ring
he can hear the crowd cheering
he looks around with his broken eyes
his opponent struts towards him
like a new lion on the pride
the old master must fight one last time

and he reaches for his prime
falls short every time

the boxer feels back at home
then he thinks of his wife
this is when his face is torn
blood flys through the air
scarlet on the canvas floor
he has fallen further that he has fallen before


he lies upon the beaten ground
he listens to the fading sounds
the lights above dull and go out
he's a wakened by a flickering reel
suddenly the light fills the room
his wife grabs his glass as it falls to the floor

and he reaches for his pride
and holds on to his wife
Track Name: I Will Learn To Talk To You
I will learn to talk to you
I will learn to talk to you

in sunlight in moonlight
winter to the summer spring to the golden fall
form the morning to the evening
I will try and listen to the meaning
listen to the meaning

I will learn to talk to you
I will learn to talk to you

through laughter, through tears
like a movie scene where the crowd cheers
any time soon, anywhere at all
trapped in your heart I should really make a call
I should really make a call

I will learn to talk to you
I will learn to talk to you

when you're alone, and you feel down
I'll be your summer breeze all year round

I'll be your summer breeze all year round.
Track Name: Think About It
Think about it

Think about it
you need to think about it
you're being an idiot
think of your wife and her heart
all the glue in the world
won't stick it back

think about it
you need to think about it
the girl flashes a bit of thigh
she knows you're married
you got to ask yourself why
why are you doing this

do you want to fell young again
you want to feel like a man
you already have it all
so whats missing
what are you missing
what are you missing

think about it
you need to think about it
when you go home can you lie
as your happy wife looks in your eye
you see the smile fade from her face
so you kiss her
you kiss her
you kiss her
think about it.
Track Name: My Heart Is All Over the Place
My heart is all over the place

its the quiet of the night, you are under candle light
your beautiful eyes trying to read me
you put me at peace, so easily achieved
I bring you so much closer to me

as you fall asleep, as your breath slows
I lie awake with my many thoughts
my heart shakes in its cage, its rhythm is gone
I've lost god is he punishing me
is he punishing me

my heart is all over the place
my heart is all over the place
tie it down and bring me round.

I long for a dream, where the people I love
are all together once again
but as time goes on, this dream is gone
now I must keep locked in my thoughts
keep them in my thoughts
Track Name: Bird Song
Bird song

I could sing about the rain and the bad things today
but all I want to do is try to make you happy
all my dreams are in bed and my hopes are on standby
so I ain't got much to except make you smile

cos lately
I haven't seen you in a while

we should take a break from the world and our worries with money
we should get out and go fro a walk along the sun kissed river carron
we could sit in the back garden and listen to the bird song
they seem to be the only souls making sense these days

cos lately
I haven't seen you in a while

I guess my mind has been elsewhere, I guess it escaped me
been to busy thinking about myself, thinking about myself
all the things you've done for me, and all you here is sorry
I didn't even notice you were needing me, needing me.

Cos lately
I ain't seen you in a while
do blame me that we haven't talked for a while

its not all bad news, cos it bad news that we want
I've got you you've got me its all we really need
Track Name: Irn Bru
Irn bru

we'd go to the park on our bmx
and drink some irn bru
drink some irn bru
we'd play video games at the local arcade
I'm player one and your player two
player one and player two

these days life got in the way
now I don't see you
you don't know what you're missing
you don't know what you're missing

we'd go to the long grass and make a base
we'd climb trees and build a fortress
build a fortress
we'd trade cards of football stars
with really bad mullets
really bad mullets

these days life go in the way
now I don't see you
and you don't know what you're missing
you don't know what you're missing

now all I hear is your job is bad
you house too small your garden is a mess
garden is a mess
you stay in all week and miss your friends
we've been there all these days
you don't know what you're missing
you don't know what you're missing.
You don't know what you're missing
Track Name: So Still
So still

curtains lie open dust floats in the sunlight
upon the desk are cd's and an empty case
clothes lie scattered upon the couch and the floor
papers tell the news from the day before

its so still

water drips from a tap onto the dirty dishes
photographs stuck to the fridge shoe happy faces
an 'I love new york' sticker is on its door
bread bin lies open beside it is a jam jar

it so still
when are you coming home
come home, your friends and your family miss you

a guitar stands in the corner unplayed
mail lies at the door it never ever stops
a calender hung on the wall with the dates filled in
a note on the table' just popped out kiss kiss'

it so still
when are you coming home
come home your friends and your family need you
they need you
need you.
