Track Name: Everybody Needs A Little Help Sometimes Please
It doesn't matter
It doesn't matter at all
You keep asking me
How did I get here?
What does it matter?
Is this a test?
Is there a camera somewhere?
"Tell him what he's won, Bob"

All you saw was the sign
But did you stop to read?
Everybody needs a little help sometimes
Please

I had a life before
Had a life before this
You think I chose this?
You must be crazy
Why do I matter?
Is this my test?
Is there a saviour somewhere?
"Tell him what he's won, God"

All you saw was the sign
But did you stop to read?
Everybody needs a little help sometimes
Please

Before you go, then
Before you go on your way
Can I ask you something?
Answer me please?
Do you get it now?
This is your test
Is there a feeling somewhere?
Tell me, did you win, yeah?

All you saw was the sign
But did you stop to read?
Everybody needs a little help sometimes
Please
Track Name: Secret To Everything
I'm waiting at the section here
Crosses my mind I want you near
I dream you're holding on to me
Without any fear that I can see

Standing now on platform nine
Names are slipping from my mind
I'm not sure where I'm going to
But it's not anywhere without you

And we'll stay 'til there's nothing
Yes we'll wait until the end is here
We will tell you our story someday
But until then we'll dance away

Hush now baby don't you see
If it's between you and me
And everyone that you hold dear
My dear
Everything is...

And we'll stay 'til there's nothing
Yes we'll wait until the end is here
We will tell you our story someday
But until then we'll dance away

And there really is the answer
And it isn't what I need
Do you want to know a secret
Secret
To everything
Track Name: Dumb
And when you walk into the room
I sway for a while
I catch my breath and then
I feel ok for a while
I want you to be there
I want you to see
I want you to make it up to me

And when I walk into the room
You stay for a while
But when I want to speak
You walk away for a while
I want you to be there
I want you to see
I want you to make it up to me

Why do we say these things?
When it's not what we mean
And why do I hear what I want?
When you're talking to me

And when we talk
The room is filled with grey for a while
When bitter shadows
Block the light day for a while
I want you to be there
I want you to see
I want you to make it up to me

Why do we say these things?
When it's not what we mean
And why do I hear what I want?
When you're talking to me
Track Name: I Choose Yesterday
Feeling colder
Getting older by the day
I don't feel like I know you at all
Sitting in the back of the taxi
Wondering if i should turn around
Cos I don't want to feel like this every day

Give me a moment
Give me a sign
Give me a chance to make up my mind
Give me the time
Give me the space
Give me a reason to take my place
Give me a time machine
Give me a date
Give me a choice I won't delay
Give me the future?
Give me a break!
Oh baby, I choose yesterday

Sharing with you
Stupid things that made us laugh
I had never felt so happy back then
Sitting in our favourite cafe
Wondering if I should ask you home
I don't regret a single day I spent with you

Give me a moment
Give me a sign
Give me a chance to make up my mind
Give me the time
Give me the space
Give me a reason to take my place
Give me a time machine
Give me a date
Give me a choice I won't delay
Give me the future?
Give me a break!
Oh baby, I choose yesterday
Track Name: Nine Nine
You know I always try
And I'll take my chance
And I will always want
To ask you for the dance

But will you stay
For another day
And stay at mine?
Nine nine nine
On the line
Nine nine nine

2099
And I still pray
I'll see you take my hand
At times when I sway

But will you stay
For another day
And stay at mine?
Nine nine nine
On the line
Nine nine nine

It's time
You need to find your way
A wise man saw the star
And followed you today
You can see
It doesn't matter
What it means to me
I'll just be here
So you can see

2099
And I still pray
You know I always try
And I'll take my chance
(But will you stay…?)
And I will always want
To ask you for the dance

I can take devastation
Down the line
For a new sensation
And a question of time
New information
And a new town beat
On a new town mix
Beating two tone feet
What you want
You can take from me
What I need you'll never see
Take all my money
You can leave my soul
You can take my house
When you take me home
Track Name: Love Don't Want To Be Loved
Love don't want to be loved
She don't want to be held
And I can't remember the last time
That I did something to make you smile

The words that you said
And the way that you said them
Stealing my heart right before my eyes
Knowing that nothing
Is going to be the same
Diving headlong into the unknown

Love don't want to be loved
She don't want to be held
And I can't remember the last time
That I did something to make you smile

The look that you gave me
And then when you turned away
Melting my heart
Right before my eyes
Wanting to tell you
Than nothing will ever change
Driving away into the unknown

Love don't want to be loved
She don't want to be held
And I can't remember the last time
That I did something to make you smile

The things that you did
And the way that you did them
Destroying my heart
Right before my eyes
Needing to touch you
And hold you and kiss you
Lying alone with the future unknown

Love don't want to be loved
She don't want to be held
And I can't remember the last time
That I did something to make you smile
Track Name: Left Of Promise
I love the industry of northern England
There's power in the smoke and in the heart
I love to be in places that I know well
Well there's melody in everything you are

I feel the artistry of New York City
There’s beauty in the rush and in the calm
I love to be with people that I know well
Well there’s memory in everything we are

There's something in the air tonight
And it's making me feel alive
And if I'm right
We'll cast a shadow
That's left of promise
Track Name: I Can't Keep Up But I Won't Slow Down
You and me
You and me and us

You're taking over
You're taking over the world
I can't tell you
I can't tell you to stop
It's a fever
It's reaching fever pitch tonight
You're still going
Yeah there you go again
Mind is racing
Heart is pumping
There's something in the air tonight
I can't make sense of anything you do
It doesn't matter what I try
I cannot breathe
I cannot speak
I want to scream but there's no sound
There's only me there's only

You and me
You and me and us

You're tearing through
You're tearing through the fabric
There's nothing left
There's nothing left of what we were
You're a demon
You're a thief in the night
You're still going?
Yeah there you go again
Room is spinning
The room is spinning round and round
I am falling
I am falling to the ground
I am floating
I am floating what's that sound?
Is that you?
Is that you reaching out?
Mind is racing
Heart is pumping
There's something in the air tonight
I can't make sense of anything you do
It doesn't matter what I try
I cannot breathe
I cannot speak
I want to scream but there's no sound
There's only me there's only
Car is racing
Streets are blurring
There's sirens in the air tonight
I can't tell where they're coming from
It doesn't matter where I look I cannot see
I cannot think
I want to break away but there's no space
There's only me there's only...

You and me
You and me and us
Track Name: Don't Talk Anymore
We don't talk anymore

Don't talk to me about hate
Talk to me about true faith
Don't talk to me til you see the sun
Talk to me when the dance is done
Don't talk if it's never enough
It's never enough if you don't
Talk to me about love

Don't talk anymore
We're not machine
Don't lose any sleep
Don't talk anymore
Don't open your eyes
Or turn on the light
Don't talk anymore
No more talking tonight

Late now the moon flies low
Light shines through the open window
You don't talk but I hear you breathe
I see you all I can hear you sleep
If you don't talk
It's never enough
When you wake up talk to me
Talk to me about love

Don't talk anymore
We're not machine
Don't lose any sleep
Don't talk anymore
Don't open your eyes
Or turn on the light
Don't talk anymore
No more talking tonight
Track Name: After The End
I've lost you
And I can't get you back
What was once solid
Is littered with cracks
Where we once lay
A chasm's formed
What was once silk
Is covered with thorns

You tell me
I mustn't blame myself
When I look in the mirror
I see no-one else

Relentless
The emptiness inside
My hollow smile
The tears cannot hide
What the hell happened
Where the fuck was I
When you decided
To let our love die?

You tell me
I mustn't blame myself
When I look in the mirror
I see no-one else

And here we still stand
And after the end
There is a light
There is
