Boring 03:41
You give me knowledge When I don’t want it You tell me things That I’ve already heard I’m not still a kid Straight out of college I know much more Than you will ever learn Should I bite my lip? To stop my mouth Coming out with it Or just scream out loud? ‘Cos I’m fed up With all of your “sha la la la” Boring You’ve always got too much to say Boring Conversations meant to be two way Whatever I’ve done You’ve gone one better A one man show That is so absurd You think you’re brilliant ‘Cos you’ve got money Socially bankrupt In the real world Should I bite my lip? To stop my mouth Coming out with it Or just scream out loud? ‘Cos I’m fed up With all of your “sha la la la” Boring You’ve always got too much to say Boring Conversations meant to be two way Boring, Boring, Boring, Boring I’m getting on now Almost a lifetime I’ve done so much And I know where I’m at But when I’m talking I get the feeling You’re being polite But think I am a “twit” Should I bite my lip? To stop my mouth Coming out with it Or just scream out loud? ‘Cos I’m fed up With all of your “sha la la la” Boring I’ve always got too much to say Boring Conversations meant to be two way Boring Do other people think the same of me Boring Shut up and make ‘em all, happy Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah Happy Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah Happy Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah Happy Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah

Promise of summer in the sky All the young lovers catch my eye Happy and smiling like the weather But I'm not feeling it, not that clever Living in a velvet bubble Hiding away from certain trouble I seem to have lost life's appetite I know that something isn't right So Tell me tomorrow, I'm not the lucky one Tell me tomorrow, There's nowhere left to run? Tell me tomorrow, That this could be the end? Because today - I need to pretend At the time and place I'll wait This time around I hope your late I could leave and make excuses For I'm so cowardly and useless Living in a velvet bubble Hiding away from certain trouble I seem to have lost life's appetite I know that something isn't right So Tell me tomorrow, I'm not the lucky one Tell me tomorrow, There's nowhere left to run? Tell me tomorrow, That this could be the end? Because today - I need to pretend And then you greet me with a smile But I still want to run a mile Could we put this off once more? Truth might put me on the floor So Tell me tomorrow, I'm not the lucky one Tell me tomorrow, There's nowhere left to run? Tell me tomorrow, That this could be the end? Because today - I need to pretend

Well it started back a year or two After my love and I were wed She said she thought there's something missing And I agreed - soft in the head She said she needed to hear tiny feet Pitter-pattering in our home So I bought some furry critters To stop her feeling so alone Furry Little Vampires, Furry Little Vampires Furry Little Vampires, Furry Little Vampires Furry Little Vampires, Are part of the family So after a while I started To think that something wasn't right Those furry things took all her time And she stopped kissin' me goodnight So, I confronted my dearest Saying it's either them or me And she chose those furry monsters Saying - go - goodbye - you're free But you know... Sometimes I recall When we were young and carefree But now all this has changed Since the furry little "suckers" Got their claws into you and me Where did I go wrong? I thought I was good - well good enough And how can I compete? With big eyed furry cuteness And a perfect set - of teeth Well it’s been a year and I'm not sure That this freedom is that great 'cos I get so freakin' lonely And I'm in, bit of a state So I hatched upon and Idea One that I knew would see me right I'll get some furry little vampires To keep me company at night Furry Little Vampires, Furry Little Vampires Furry Little Vampires, Furry Little Vampires Furry Little Vampires, Are part of the family Furry Little Vampires, Furry Little Vampires Furry Little Vampires, Furry Little Vampires Furry Little Vampires, Got feline fangery Oh Yeah! DISCLAIMER: No Furry Little Vampires were harmed in the creation of this song

Let's play a game I'll pretend that I don't know you And you can do the same Let's play a game Let's play a game Let's play a game Let's play a game Meet up somewhere What would I talk to you about? Would you just stand and stare? Would we still care? Would we still care? Let's play a game Let's play a game What I love, you can't abide What you love I cast aside Lookin’ out for something more You know I have to ask What’s this all for? We could be kind Cos honestly is painful And common ground is hard to find Just say bye-bye Say bye-bye Or play a game? Let’s play a game Let's play a game To see if there's a point in this See if the fun remains Let's play a game Let's play a game Just one last time Your place or mine!

Bubble 03:36
No escape from this mad world today We need a place to hide No rest from the bad news Why sadness entertains We need to get away Where only love reins Climb into a bubble with me Leave the world behind And float away blissfully Give up all the daily grind So we can spend more time Give up all the things we call stuff As long as you are mine Isn’t that more than enough More than enough Climb into a bubble with me Leave the world behind And float away blissfully When we’re inside Everything is so easy So climb into a bubble with me And float away blissfully

Cup of Tea 04:00
And we'll start talking 'bout weather And working to the end of my tether And course the daily family drama There’s always something, Oh what a palaver! Let's have a cup of tea And we’ll drink to you and me Then you'll ask me what d'ya know About what's his face and so and so Let's have a cup of tea Let's have a cup of tea And of course we’ll reminisce Through our rose tinted memory bliss Although the triumphs were quite small We felt like winners who had won it all Let's have a cup of tea And we’ll drink to you and me Then you'll ask me what d'ya know About what's his face and so and so Let's have a cup of tea Let's have a cup of tea Some say I'm talking to myself And it’s not too good for my mental health Well for me I know that isn't true ‘caus brew I in hand I still feel close to you So... Let's have a cup of tea And we’ll drink to you and me Then you'll ask me what d'ya know About what's his face and so and so So let's have a cup of tea The drink that makes us so happy And we'll brew in a big pot Cause we love to chin wag a lot Let's have a cup of tea Let's have a cup of tea milk and two sugars please ;)

White Roses 03:44
They were married on a classic summers day She was such a picture with her white rose bouquet A pure union committed between a bride and groom Why were those thorns not removed? White roses in June Wild Beauty and sweetest perfume Wishing they would, forever bloom Built a house, had 2 kids, and was good to his wife But the roses grew wild and unbridled Then she left him for a man on the dark side of town So he cursed that bush and chopped it down White roses in June Wild Beauty and sweetest perfume Wishing they would, forever bloom White Roses in June In the church those flowers they covered his rest Sad aroma in the air, a fillin' people's heads And at those pearly gates he could smile once more Met a fragrant embrace as he had, years before White roses in June Wild Beauty and sweetest perfume Now then for him they'll always bloom White Roses in June Now then for him they'll always bloom White Roses in June

Shoes 02:38
Flying high with stars up in the sky Until I fell from the constellation Hailed by by a major few Is only a minor consolation Have you seen my shoes? Have you seen my shoes? Oh life life of strange desire Bright lights and the adulation Dream Dream as you walk away Of the comforts in your resignation Have you seen my shoes? Have you seen my shoes? Have you seen my shoes? Creased and worn just like my face Have you heard my voice? Cracked and thin from life's embrace But have you met my friends? Almost too many to remember And have you seen my smile? It just goes on, goes on forever Well have you? A note, note to all the dreamers Impressed by my dedication This life's best as entertainment Hard to make it your remuneration Have you seen my shoes? Have you seen my shoes? Have you seen my shoes? Have you seen my shoes?

Mystery 03:53
Once there was a time You were always in my head Oh what a time But now that part of me seems dead Maybe that's the reason I've been feeling lost and blue Maybe that's the reason Why I can't believe We're finally through Goodbye Mystery so long you did your best Goodbye Mystery consigned to history like the rest Goodbye Mystery your golden days have gone Replaced by all the answers I didn't want What progress is this Information overload At your fingertips Whatever happened to working it out? I know all your secrets Just like your in the family Whatever happened to romance? 'Cos there was a time When less was so much more Goodbye Mystery so long you did your best Goodbye Mystery consigned to history like the rest Goodbye Mystery your golden days have gone Replaced by all the answers I didn't want - So No more knowing it all I'm taking a stand To avoid more disappointment I'll ignore what's in my hand For the magic will return and the lights will go back on Hello Mystery Hope you're not gone Hello Mystery Hello Mystery Hello Mystery Hope you're not gone

Peeling paint and frozen windows Behind four walls where no-one cares Blissful moments before she goes Always Leaving London Learning that we're bound by numbers And science always pays the bills Streets of gold all filled with wonders Always Leaving London Caught inside the big machine Paying the price of necessity Grinding every hope and every dream Always Leaving London I don't believe in luck Or how you roll the dice If there's no-one listening Then take your own advice Maybe I need some help Or is it something else? What I've found Is heaven sent Inside the holy trinity Are these precious things Far from here will set me free Always Leaving London Always Leaving London Always Leaving London
