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

No Reminder 04:13
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

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

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

Holding On 03:35
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

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

On and On 04:30
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

Carolyn 05:07
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

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

Help Me Out 03:46
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
