Track Name: Love Lies Down
I was drawn into a lie
Had to leave it all behind
Not what I had in mind

I'll be standing where the love lies down
and the streets don't fuss over me
I'll be waving taxis all away
'cause the walk will do me good

I will sow this
I would sow this bag of hope
All I needed was some rope
But I don't wanna go

I'll be standing where the love lies down
and the streets don't fuss over me
I'll be waving taxis all away
'cause the walk will do me good

I'm waking from a dream
One I don't believe
My head is in the clouds
I feel I'm coming down.

When I wake up at the dawn
When I crawl out of my hole
And do it all again

I'll be standing where the love lies down
and the streets don't fuss over me
I'll be waving taxis all away
'cause the walk will do me good
Track Name: No Reminder
Standing in the cold in the rain
At Shoreditch station waiting for your train
You said you'd make a liar out of me
'Cause everything you want is what you need

No Reminder
About the way things used to be and never will

"Grab your hat we're heading for the coast
And never hear that word again I hope!"
She wrapped her scarf tight around her head
"Won't waste another minute here!" she said

No Reminder
About the way things used to be and never will

So not long ago,
You were so far
You were so far away
Now time has come
For you to see
You never were far away

No Reminder
About the way things used to be and never will
Track Name: A Drop in the Ocean
The Day started same as the last
All remembering days past
The dream of the life they never had
But there's no living left to be had

The call came in too late
Standing tall the Light Brigade
The time they'll never spend
Looking back at her he said

"Well I could leave and run alone
Like fireworks our hearts explode
I told you I'd come back to you
You wait too long and I spoke way too soon"

All we are is a drop in the ocean
Two cool kids just sitting and hoping
That their lives aren't living without them
For long
Track Name: Where's Your Love?
I was never quite like you
Was born into a silver spoon
There was nothing left for me
Nothing but my pedigree

We're not coming down

Where's your love?
It's all I've ever wanted now

See me on your TV screen
But look behind it's all machine
Fucking on a razor blade
We feel no pleasure feel no shame

We're not coming down

Where's your love?
It's all I've ever wanted now

Find yourself a niche
And you push it on with no agenda
A party in your name
You invite the perverts and incite the action
Will yourself to fame
And you cry yourself to sleep about it
They all know your name
For now...

Where's your love?
It's all I've ever wanted now
Track Name: Holding On
Hold me down, lock me up and don't look back
I'm that train running haywire off the track
Say my peace, but it's never what you hear
Watch me scream and then watch me disappear

You don't know
You're holding on to everyone
You don't know how it feels

I can't say why these thoughts have crossed my mind
In my head it's a difficult design
All this noise keeping me awake at night
Silence falls waiting for the last reprise

You don't know
You're holding on to everyone
You don't know how it feels
Track Name: Rock n' Roll Radio
Turning the dial
So much static
They don't hear what everybody hears
And it's all the same to me

Figure it out
Believe in something
The "Next Big Thing" is beaten half to death
and you're back to where you begin

And I wonder where you are?
And I wonder what you've done?

God I miss my radio
God I miss my radio
God I miss the radio

Spin me around
But you won't have it
Push that hit though everybody knows
That it's all the same anyway

And I wonder if they know,
That the talent's just a show?

God I miss my radio
God I miss my radio
God I miss the radio

And I wonder where you are?
And I wonder what you've done?

God I miss my radio
God I miss my radio
God I miss the radio
God I miss the radio
Rock and Roll my radio
Rock and Roll my radio
Rock and Roll my radio
Rock and Roll my radio
Track Name: On and On
Had another breakdown
Sick to death of this town
They've seen the best of me,
Take the rest I'll be seeing you around

How many people do you think there'll be
Alone in my empathy waiting for me?
I might never ask you when you're gonna leave
It's always in the back of my mind

And you go on and on and on
How long will you keep
The magic in your sleeve
And you're playing tricks on me?

Waiting for a sign
I'll go somewhere with you they won't find
You'll take good care of me
We'll have to wait and see
How I do when you're not around

How many people do you think there'll be
Alone in my empathy waiting for me?
I might never ask you when you're gonna leave
It's always in the back of my mind

And you go on and on and on
How long will you keep
The magic in your sleeve
And you're playing tricks on me?

And you go on and on and on
Track Name: Carolyn
Waiting in line
Wait for days nobody seems to mind
All my of life
The wasted time

Heaven and Earth
It moves for her
What it's worth
It's what we were

Kind of what I said
Kind of what I did
And the voice in my head

Carolyn I'm still waiting for your answer
Where you been?
I'm still waiting for it

Is this our fate
To float around in utter disarray
Tell me now
Tell me that you'll take me back somehow

Kind of what you said
Kind of what you did
And the voice in my head

Carolyn I'm still waiting for your answer
Where you been?
I'm still waiting for it

Carolyn I'm still waiting for your answer
Where you been?
I'm still waiting for it now

Carolyn I'm still waiting for your answer
Where you been?
I'm still waiting for it
Track Name: The Girl in the Back Row
Good luck to the girl in the back row,
You're doing fine
You never get what you paid for,
But I'll get mine

You think you're so very well read
You read the Sun
I know two sides of the story
You know none

I just stopped by just to say hello
I will save your soul
I just stopped by just to say hello
I will save your soul

How long will you stop and you let go
'Cause it won't last
You're holding on for your dear life
You're fading fast

I just stopped by just to say hello
I will save your soul
I just stopped by just to say hello
I will save your soul

You're running faster and faster
Until you fall...

I just stopped by just to say hello
I will save your soul
I just stopped by just to say hello
I will save your soul
Track Name: Help Me Out
Trying to repent the rules you break and bend
You break them all again
Taking up my time, you're drinking all my wine
Never asking why

Well I hope you might

Help me out
Help me out
Leave me here
Without a doubt

Consulting charts and graphs,
Doing complicated maths
but the answer's still the same
Leave the TV on,
You pretend that you're alone,
But you're lonely anyway

Well I hope you might

Help me out
Help me out
Leave me here
Without a doubt

Help me out
Help me out
Leave me here
Without a doubt
