Track Name: Only Time Will Tell
Running in a new direction
Waiting for a train to come
Down the tracks
Sitting for hours at a time
Thoughts travelling through my mind
Then you say the words I knew you would
All this time I knew you could

Making my heart beat faster
Eyes are open we are timeless
Can we dance to a new tune
And put our words to a new use

Are you there
Single minutes are passing
Are you aware
Every second is dragging
Are you prepared
Don't you know that I want in
Only time will tell
Only time will tell

A resolution for a new start
Waiting for the starting gun
The race was won
Too much time on my hands
Always trying to make a stand
Then you say the words I knew you would
All this time I knew you could

Making my heart beat faster
Eyes are open we are timeless
Can we dance to a new tune
And put our words to a new use

Are you there
Single minutes are passing
Are you aware
Every second is dragging
Are you prepared
Don't you know that I want in
Only time will tell
Only time will tell

Instrumental

Making my heart beat faster
Eyes are open we are timeless
Can we dance to a new tune
And put our words to a new use

Are you there
Single minutes are passing
Are you aware
Every second is dragging
Are you prepared
Don't you know that I want in
Only time will tell
Only time will tell
Track Name: Pull Me Closer In
Every word
You've got me listening
And every touch
You have me shivering
And all my emotions
Are tied in with yours
And all my devotion
It lies with you

Pull me closer in
And I will fade into your skin
Pull me closer in
And I will fade into your skin

When I look into your eyes
I feel this every time
And when I see you smile
Something happens deep inside and
I want to waste my time
Just looking at you for a while
Cos I just cant believe,
I cant believe you're mine

Every thought
Leads straight back to you
And every step I take
I take it carefully
Cos I don't want to lose you
No I could never lose you

Pull me closer in
And I will fade into your skin
Pull me closer in
And I will fade into your skin

When I look into your eyes
I feel this every time
And when I see you smile
Something happens deep inside and
I want to waste my time
Just looking at you for a while
Cos I just cant believe,
I cant believe you're mine
Cant believe that your mine

I know you wont believe me
and I know you won't believe me
and I know you won't believe me
But I know
Every word is true
And every thought is you
And every second's new
Cos I'm in love with you

When I look into your eyes
I feel this every time
And when I see you smile
Something happens deep inside and
I want to waste my time
Just looking at you for a while
Cos I just cant believe,
I cant believe you're mine
Cant believe that your mine

So pull me closer in
Pull me closer in
And I will fade into your, fade into your skin
Pull me closer in
Track Name: Critical Perfection
I feel I'm wasting, wasting my time
Wishing you were like me
After all
I'm not featured in what you see
So play your games
Look at your pictures
On your TV screen
And you can criticise all you please
But I'm not going to change
So I guess this will go your way
And I was being naiive
To think you could be like me

But I'm still working on the fashion
To live up to your expectations
Of what's critically perfection
But then it changes
How am I supposed to mention
How I feel if its means nothing
I wont change a thing for you
Cos its not what you'd do

Collect your trinkets and your trophies
When they've all lost their shine
Scatter them behind you
But leave me out of your design
Cast off the past
In with the new
And out with the old
Your always looking for the best
And what you have you put on hold
You live your life with so much to lose
Well I feel sorry for you
No value no worth
And with nothing left to choose

And I'm still working on the fashion
To live up to your expectations
Of what's critically perfection
But then it changes
How am I supposed to mention
How I feel if its means nothing
I wont change a thing for you
Cos its not what you'd do

Does it worry you in any way
That you might just feel the same
Does it worry you in any way
That you might just feel the same
And does it scare you in every way
That I know you feel the same

Cos we're all working on the fashion
To live up to the expectations
Of what's critically perfection
But then it changes
How are we supposed to mention
How we feel if its means nothing
We wont change a thing for you
Cos its not what you'd do
We wont change a thing for you
Cos its not what you'd do
Track Name: Somewhere Else To Play
The tip of your tongue
Your teeth and your lips
that builds you up to this
Has your ego left the stage now
Your two faced mind
Is taking up my time
But your still fine
With your little lies
Go find
Somewhere else to play now

You give you take
You push yourself away
And hold your head up high
Made yourself think you were right
And all the people that you let down
You cant turn their lives around
Go find
Somewhere else to play now

Ohhhhhhhhh
Ohhhhhhhhh
Go find
Somewhere else, somewhere else,
Somewhere else
Go find
Somewhere else to play now

The fire is burning in your soul
These castle walls are falling down
And this is your choice not mine
In the details of your mind
Who knows what you'll find
Go find
Somewhere else to play now

Your baggy jumpers and your skinny jeans
Makes them fall at your knees
Your baggy jumpers and your skinny jeans
Your selfish words and your silly schemes
Makes them fall at your knees
But its all in your dreams

Ohhhhhhhhh
Ohhhhhhhhh
Go find
Somewhere else, somewhere else,
Somewhere else
Go find
Somewhere else to play now
Somewhere else to play now
You wont have it your own way now
Somewhere else to play now
Somewhere else to play now
Ohhhhhhhhhh
Track Name: Let You Go
Your face is white tonight
Had to see me say goodbye for the last time
Don't have to cry but I might
Seeing what I'd done to you
What I put you through
and yours eyes are wide
Filling with tears and questions I left behind
And you couldn't find
So now you're asking

Was it her
Was it love
Was it tears
Was it trust
Was it me
And everything you see
Was it sex
Was it lust
Was it looks
Was it trust
Was it him
And all you constrained from me

I don't want you
I don't love you
I don't need you
But I do

When I talk to you
Its like feelings come and go
Like the wildest winter flow
When I talk to you
Its like heaven's meeting hell
How do I break this spell
A constant fear that you'll ask me
A constant fear that you'll stop asking

Was it her
Was it love
Was it tears
Was it trust
Was it me
And everything you see
Was it sex
Was it lust
Was it looks
Was it trust
Was it him
And all you constrained from me

I don't want you
I don't love you
I don't need you
But I do
I don't want you
I don't love you
I don't need you
But I do
So much
So much
It scares me to the bone
That I haven't let you go

And now you're asking
Was it her
Was it love
Was it tears
Was it trust
Was it me
And everything you see
Was it sex
Was it lust
Was it looks
Was it trust
Was it him
And all you constrained from me

I don't want you
I don't love you
I don't need you
But I do
I don't want you
I don't love you
I don't need you
But I do
So much
So much
It scares me to the bone
That i haven't let you go
It scares me to the bone
That i haven't let you know
