Track Name: I Can Never Be What You Want Me To Be [2]
Broke the mould
But you can't put back the pieces
Now they're gone
Cos the pieces they don't fit back
How you want
But my head and my heart
Are in tact

Bought and sold
But you can't exchange this thing
For something else
No you can't just put this thing
Back on the shelf
Cos my head and my heart
Are in tact

Come on come on come on
What will it take to feel it?
Come on come on come on
What will it take to forgive?

Halfway home
But there's nothing here for me
To call my own
And there's nowhere left for you
To turn and run
So we stand, and we stare
Like we're lost

I don't know
How we let things get so far
From where we came
And we try to talk but words
Don't sound the same
But I see, in your eyes
All's not lost

Come on come on come on
What will it take to feel it?
Come on come on come on
What will it take to forgive?
Track Name: Freewheeling
What have I done?
I can't sink no more
Never again

I can't see straight
For what I've done
I can't walk straight
For what I've sunk
One more one more
One more one more
I can't walk straight
For what I've drunk

I'm freewheeling
I'm on your outside
You can see me love me
Thrill me kill me
I won't hide
I'm freewheeling

What do you want?
Can you take one more?
And forever again?

Another day another shot
And I'll take
Just what you've got
Need more need more
Need more need more
You can't break me
It's what I want

I'm freewheeling
I'm on your outside
You can see me love me
Thrill me kill me
I won't hide
I'm freewheeling

I need more
I want more
More more more

I can't think straight
For what I've done
I don't know
What I've become
No more no more
No more no more
I'll hang my head
When I am done

I'm freewheeling
(I'm the good times)
I'm on your outside
(And for all times)
You can see me love me
Thrill me kill me
I won't hide
I'm freewheeling

I'm freewheeling
(You can pay for me)
I'm on your outside
(You can pray for me)
You can see me love me
Thrill me kill me
I won't hide
I'm freewheeling
Track Name: Protection
The guy in the back says nothing
Until it’s time to pour the whiskey
The girl pipes up and she starts talking
Asks about the band
Where they’re from
And he says something

Don’t make them speak
Just pour the drinks
The only sign of friendship here is a “yes”

And she asks for a cigarette
And he offers protection

It’s been a long week in this town
Playing festival stages
So many new faces around
And the midnight parties
Have got him down
He thinks she’s stupid
She thinks he might be dumb

Don’t make them speak
Just pour the drinks
The only sign of a friendship here is a “yes”

They stay closed as they get close
without their clothes on
No one opens hearts here
Just protection

And she puts out her cigarette
And he puts on protection

Get it on
Get it on
