Track Name: Caught In The Middle
You told me I was caught in the middle now,
and I told you don't be so cruel.
You told me that you couldn't face another row,
and I told you I'm no one's fool.

But that's all right 'cos I know you well,
and if truth be told I could never love another one.

You told me it was time that we settled down,
and I told you I'd run away.
You told me that I couldn't make it out of town,
and I agreed so I had to stay.

But that's all right 'cos I know you well,
and if truth be told I could never love another one.

You told me I was caught in the middle now,
and I told you don't be so cruel.
You told me that you couldn't face another row,
and I told you I'm no one's fool.

But that's all right 'cos I know you well,
and if truth be told I could never love another one.

But that's all right 'cos I know you well,
and if truth be told I could never love another one.

I could never love another one.
Track Name: The Well
Shallow the well, which takes your coins.
Hopeless the road, which dragged you here.
Broken the thoughts, which cloud my mind.
Subtle the love, I hope to find.

My heart, is colder now,
and I've seen your crown,
but I will not bow,
I will not bow to what,
you ask of me.

Take the time to make some sense of thoughts of what I need,
I'll take the time to think of ones I've lost.
My strength in memories of you, will doubtless soon be free,
Regret will chill me like a winters frost.

My heart, is colder now,
and I've seen your crown,
but I will not bow,
I will not bow to what,
you ask of me.

My heart, is colder now,
and I've seen your crown,
but I will not bow,
I will not bow to what,
you ask of me.
Track Name: The Patchwork Song
My footprints mark the golden sand babe,
the waves they drift towards my feet.
The sunshine it casts a thousand shadows,
tell me how could you look so sweet?

If you pull at stitches they will tear babe,
so it's just best to let them be.
In time the frays can start to show babe,
but until that day you still belong to me.

I couldn't love you any more babe,
but I'm just trying to make you see.
Our patchwork life can't last forever,
but until that day, you still belong to me.

Sometimes in life we lose control babe,
and we end up some place else.
I'm not entirely sure where you are,
I don't think you even know yourself.

I couldn't love you any more babe,
but I'm just trying to make you see.
Our patchwork life can't last forever,
but until that day, you still belong to me.

until that day, you still belong to me.
Track Name: I Can't Promise
I've got stories to tell you,
got so much to tell you,
if you'll lend me your ear.

Since you've come back to show me,
that you really want me,
then I'll give you it all.

You, were all that I wanted,
the one that I needed,
but your hand was held.

I can't promise there won't be a time
when the love that I've lost creeps through,
but I will strive to burn it all down,
'cos the one that I want is you.
Oh it's you.

I, I moved on and settled,
really thought I was settled,
'till she walked away.

Now, you tell me you need me,
that you really need me,
I want to break down.

But I, I have to be guarded,
keep my heart safeguarded,
does it have to be now?

I can't promise there won't be a time
when the love that I've lost creeps through,
but I will strive to burn it all down,
'cos the one that I want is you.
Oh it's you.

Oh it's you.
Yes it's you.
It's really you.
Oh it's you.

You're the one I want.
You're the one I need.
You can show the way.
You can set me free.

I can't promise there won't be a time
when the love that I've lost creeps through,
but I will strive to burn it all down,
'cos the one that I want is you.

Oh it's you.
Yes it's you.
Oh it's you.
Track Name: Never Going Back
Now the leaves have fallen and the trees are dead,
you and I have been put to bed, and I think,
it might be different next time.

Then my head was turned by one so fair,
but I couldn't see that, she couldn't care less.
Broke my heart and my mind.

You'll come back to me,
if I would only wait.
I won't be there to hold you tight,
'cos you are just too late.

So I take a walk on down, an open plain
and I search for anybody else to blame,
but I can't turn that poison into wine.

I push all thoughts of love from my mind
and I concentrate on what I would fine
If I give, if I give myself more time.

You'll come back to me,
if I would only wait.
I won't be there to hold you tight,
'cos you are just too late.

Then a western wind blew from the coast,
with it a girl who comes to all my shows
and I think,
it might be different this time.
Track Name: Me & You
When I look back on my life I want to see,
thousands of memories of you and me,
lets go for a drive and make some more today.

There's so many places that we could do,
some places are new and then there's some we know,
Well that's all fine as long as your with me.

So if you'll be by my side when the money's all run dry,
that's all I need to carry on.

Could go to the Ritz or maybe see a show,
a plane to the Caribbean or Rio.
Well that's all fine, but now what I want to do.

I'd rather a walk with you or a day in bed,
curled up on the safe with a cheap bottle of red,
the perfect day, just me and you all right.

So if you'll be by my side when the money's all run dry,
that's all I need to carry on.

No more I need.
You're everything to me.
No more I need.
You are the light in me.

I'd rather a walk with you or a day in bed,
curled up on the safe with a cheap bottle of red,
the perfect day, just me and you all right.

So if you'll be by my side when the money's all run dry,
that's all I need to carry on.

I said if you'll be by my side when the money's all run dry,
that's all I need to carry on.
Track Name: Hold Me Once
Can you be all I want you to be?
Can you find things to love inside of me?
Can you settle my dreams, and repair my seams?
Are you strong?

I am broken and wounds they have not gone.
I am weak and my voice it has no song.
I am lost, I am slain, I am cold and I'm afraid.
Of what will come.

So hold me once,
hold me right.
All I want from you
is tonight.
Hold me once
hold me right
All I want from you
tonight.

Please find a tiny space inside your heart,
for a boy whose life's been torn apart.
I don't pity or your fears, just a break from tears.
That's enough.

So hold me once, hold me right.
All I want from you is tonight.
Hold me once, hold me right
All I want from you tonight.

You're all I have, just let me love you.

Hold me once.
Track Name: Goodbye
I never meant to hurt you,
I never meant to make you cry,
I never meant for you to live this lie.

I didn't mean to steal him,
I didn't mean to fall this hard,
I couldn't stop the train from coming home.

I maybe spoke to quickly,
I maybe gave you far too much,
I maybe should have spared you all this pain.

I didn't want to be that girl,
I didn't want to take that name,
I didn't want to be the one to blame.

Let the flames engulf the walls.
Let the smoke rise to the sky.
Let the wolves just tear it all.
This is goodbye.

I never meant to hurt you.
I didn't mean to.
I maybe spoke to quickly.
I didn't mean it to.
I maybe spoke to soon.

Let the flames engulf the walls.
Let the smoke rise to the sky.
Let the wolves just tear it all.
This is goodbye.

This is goodbye.
Track Name: Sailboat
She was my sail boat, drifting out to sea,
and her voice calls out to me.

A thousand times I had to set him free,
and his words called out to me.

Then she took my hand, led me away.
I did not know quite what to do.
The street was littered with decay, our love was wasted.
That's when she turned and walked to you.

A broken promise there for all to see,
and a thousand eyes on me.

A thousand times I had to, let him be,
but his words called out to me.

Then she took my hand, led me away.
I did not know quite what to do.
The street was littered with decay, our love was wasted.
That's when she turned and walked to you.

She called to me.
He called to me.
Track Name: Suzy
Oh Suzy, say you'll stay.

I called her name, into the dark
and I was standing in a field.
The air was still, there came no sound,
and in the chill my fate was sealed.

I took my things, laid them down,
my eyes were weak inside my head,
I'll take some time, and wait a while,
and I just hope she wakes up dead.

Oh Suzy, say you'll stay.
Track Name: Let The Light
Tell me your secrets, I will tell no lies.
Tell me your dreams, speak of your hopes.
I wasn't looking but to my surprise,
I found a hand I wanna hold.

London's streets so lonely in the pouring rain.
My head is weak my hands so cold.
My hearts on fire and my eyes the same.
I never knew this love could be bold.

So open up your heart to me,
and I'l be everything you need.
So open up your heart to me,
and I'll be everything you need.

So let the darkness lead you into my arms,
think of nothing but tonight.
I'll give you all if you just lay down your arms,
and in your smile I will delight.

So let emotion creep back into your heart,
let the light just fill you up.
Your mind and body are no longer apart,
just let me be the one to hold you now.

Shout it out, shout it out, shout it out for me girl.
So open up your heart to me,
and I'l be everything you need.
So open up your heart to me,
and I'll be everything you need.
Track Name: Ashes
Ooh, midnight calling,
ooh, to my darling.
My heart is black as ashes, since it got struck by lightning.

Take me down to the reservoir,
where the water stings my eyes.
The rain falls down on hallowed ground,
and I know I can't escape it,
until the day I die.

Ooh, midnight calling,
ooh, to my darling.
My heart is black as ashes, since it got struck by lightning.

Rolling, and tumbling like an unmanned train,
I got my head in the clouds, but my soul down the drain.
I got a feeling that things ain't gonna turn out well,
but I'll take my time.
before they drag me to hell.

Ooh, midnight calling,
ooh, to my darling.
