Track Name: Cut You Loose
CUT YOU LOOSE

Cut you loose, you're just more hassle than you're worth
Cut you loose, won’t be the last won’t be the first
I’m confused, you said you were doing this for me
I'll cut you loose for using me.
Cut you loose, someone like you just has to learn
There's no excuse, you don't treat people in that way
I'm not a fool! You picked the wrong woman
I'll cut you loose for using me.

I don't need you to tell me what to say
I don't need your advice in any way
I don't want you in my life
this journey’s mine

Cut you loose I can’t believe you weaseled in to rule the roost
A great big cuckoo in my nest
I refuse to let you latch on like a leach
I'll cut you loose for using me

I don't need you, I’ve come this far alone
For God’s sake, stop calling on the phone
I don't want you in my life
This journey’s mine

Cut you loose, it makes no sense to keep you close
Such a noose, around my neck I’m going to choke
If I don't choose, to sever ties and twisted lies
I'll cut you loose for using me
I'll cut you loose for using me
I'll cut you loose for using me
Track Name: Miss You When
MISS YOU WHEN

Start the day off with a stretch
and as the day kept stretching I did fill it full with things to do
To keep my mind off you
Hanging in my head, remnants of a dream slipping like the cover from my bed
leaves me cold cold cold as the day unfolds and

I miss you when I'm awake
They say this is real life but I say it ain’t and
I'm only dreaming, I'm only dreaming but
What’s the world without a dream, what’s the world without a dream?

We talked for hours last night and I’m clinging on with all my might but
Time, wicked time! It’s blurring all the lines of our conversations
Fading all the colours of our lamentations
Stealing your feelings away from mine
Time, wicked time! And

I miss you when I'm awake
They say this is real life but I say it ain’t and
I'm only dreaming, I'm only dreaming but
What’s the world without a dream, what’s the world without a dream?

Maybe they should check me in?
Suits me, more time to dream
Life leaves me empty as my wallet
Worn as my shoes
Black as my pockets, oh
I’m tired so please let me sleep....cause...

I miss you when I'm awake
They say this is real life but I say it ain’t and
I'm only dreaming, I'm only dreaming but
What’s the world without a dream, what’s the world without a dream?

If you've got any kind of dream you better go go go for it
You don't want to reach the end with nothing to show for it. Ah ah ah

I miss you when I'm awake
They say this is real life but I say it ain’t and
I'm only dreaming, I'm only dreaming but
What’s the world without a dream, what’s the world without a dream?
What’s the world without a dream?
Track Name: Wolves
WOLVES

I’ve tried to understand why
people do the things they do
All my life
Lay your trust in a smiling face
as they take your money and say you’re great
But it’s all just lies.

When you gather more than three
Watch out for wolves among the sheep
and like some petty game
they'll pour poison on your name

I live in eternal hope
that love will win the war
but ego is a powerful foe.
It doesn't care what it says
to get you out the way
as long as it works.

When you gather more than three
Watch out for wolves among the sheep
And like some petty game
they'll pour poison on your name
The week in spirit use
cloak and dagger moves
But they will never hide
My shining light.

I will send them love
Track Name: Mary
MARY

Mary sat on the city bridge, arms outstretched, feeling for footsteps
Crutches by her side as the people walk on by.
Mary said she was cold, and hadn't eaten in days
Cried so loud, so so loud, as the people walked away.

You don't know, she said, you don't know how lucky you are
No, you don't know, you don't know how lucky you are.

Mary thought last night at the shelter felt a hundred years long.
Old fat Meg pulled hair from her head and
When she woke her man was gone.
Mary pulled my hand towards her and talked between the tears
'Nobody cares if I live or die, no-one’s seen me in years.'

You don't know, she said, you don't know how lucky you are
No, you don't know, you don't know how lucky you are.

Mary how did you get so lost?
Mary where did it all go wrong?
Mary please don't get drunk tonight!
Mary don't give up the fight!

You don't know, you don't know how lucky you are
and the, people walking on by
they don't know how lucky they are
and it could be you or I
We don't know how lucky we are
We don't know, we don't know how lucky we are.
She said 'You don't know, you don't know how lucky you are. No’
Track Name: Pull of the Moon
Pull of the Moon

I’ve met a man and it feels right
out of the blue and into my heart.
A gentle man a gentle mind
and I knew right from the start

He said....
Can you feel the pull of the moon?
Deep inside your heart, can you feel the pull of the moon?

We should never part, you and I
In this crazy lullaby
I can feel you in my soul, we are one, you and I
And we'll wrinkle and we'll wither
But let’s always be together
Love’s the only thing that matters aren't we lucky that we know, aren't we lucky

We can feel the pull of the moon.
Deep inside our hearts, we can feel the pull of the moon.

As you show me that you know me
and you wrap your arms around me
Tell me nobody will harm me anymore
We are the Earth, we are the Air
As you gently pull my hair back from my face
Out of my eyes you smile so wide
I love you baby,
Let’s face our fears together, a rock in any weather
You and me were meant to be, it’s all destiny
Can you see us in the stars?

We can feel the pull of the moon
Deep inside our hearts, we can feel the pull of the moon.

you're all I want, you're all I need
you're all I want, you're such a dream

this is heaven, it’s heaven, it’s heaven
Track Name: Unwound and Broken
UNWOUND AND BROKEN

Some days all I can think about
are the things I've done wrong
as I've stumbled along.
Some days there's no hope at play.
There’s no love to attain.
No stopping the pain. No fun.
I can’t keep feeling this way
I feel like I'm going insane
I can’t help feeling this way
I feel like going away
I'm just a hollow sound,
A woman unwound and broken.

I used to care enough to try,
Try and find reasons.
I used to laugh until I cried
I soaked up every season.
But now I only want to be alone
and yet I'm still yearning
for someone to save me and take me home.
Save sadness returning.
I can’t keep feeling this way
I feel like I'm going insane
I can’t keep feeling this way
I feel like going away
I'm just a hollow sound,
A woman unwound and broken.

Sick of this town, all I feel is down
Heaviness hinders
Loneliness lingers
There's nothing around here for me.
Take me away to another place, into the stars
Somewhere nowhere
Somewhere everywhere
Somewhere far.
I can’t keep feeling this way
I feel like I'm going insane
I can’t keep feeling this way
I feel like going away
I'm just a hollow sound,
A woman unwound and broken.
Track Name: No Need to be Lonely
NO NEED TO BE LONELY

You've gone and got my heart, baby
You've gone and got my mind.
We'll never come apart, sugar
Our souls are intertwined.

You turn me on – OH

Kiss me like you want me, honey
Hold me like you care
I won't toy with you, sweet darling
My love I do declare

You turn me on – OH
You turn me on, turn me turn me
You turn me on
You turn me on, there’s no need to be lonely.

We've only just begun
We've only just begun

You turn me on – OH
You turn me on, turn me turn me
You turn me on
You turn me on, there’s no need to be lonely.
Track Name: Want to Go (album ver. Explicit Lyrics)
WANT TO GO

I don’t know how many times I’ve told you
Told you this
You make no sense after Absinthe, it’s hit and miss
Ten years on the wagon
By now I know
I’m always bored at parties and
it always shows

I don’t know anyone
Who knows anyone
And I don’t care

I wanna go home

Fuck making connections
and talking shit
I’ve been here for hours
and everybody’s pissed
There'll be no revelation, no new thought
Just a pile of empty cans
and some hours lost

I don’t know any of
Any of the right people
And I don’t care

I wanna go home
Track Name: I Feel
I FEEL

I feel like all my hope is gone.
I feel I'll never meet someone.
I feel no-one’s coming for my love.
I feel my battleship has sunk.

I feel such a waste of time.
I feel everything but fine.
I've got so much love to give
but who wants a broken sensitive?

I can’t cry myself
to sleep anymore
every other night.
It hurts so bad.
The loneliness.
I don't know who could ever,
ever make it right.
I feel. I feel.

I feel too much of a mess to fake a smile.
I feel on the far side.
I feel nothing matters anymore.
I feel like the saddest girl in the world.

I can’t cry myself
to sleep anymore
every other night.
It hurts so bad.
The loneliness.
I don't know who could ever,
ever make it right.
I feel. I feel.

When the morning comes
and I wake alone
day after day
I just can't take the pain.
But I’m all or nothing,
I'm all or nothing.
I feel. I feel.
I feel. I feel.

I feel like all my hope is gone.
I feel I'll never meet someone.
I feel no-one’s coming for my love.
I feel my battleship has sunk.
Track Name: You
YOU

I didn't foresee the way the day would run away from me.
Like a clown I ran around town.
Crossed the road between the cars
Weaved through a thousand faces, going different places

But you, you you you -oo -oo
were never far from my thoughts
it’s true -oo -oo -oo -oo it’s true, it’s true

I didn't foresee the way the rain would drizzle down on me
Or the longest queue just before noon.
And my, my heart sank in the bank,
As I stood and shuffled slowly on, stood and shuffled slowly on, stood and shuffled...

But you, you you you -oo -oo
were never far from my thoughts
it’s true -oo -oo -oo -oo it’s true, it’s true

After all the waiting and the painful easy listening blaring from the ceiling.
Through bits of calls and conversations, thoughts and observations
I did reach the place and – finally – asked for my money.
So when she looked up from the screen through her glasses at me and said
That’s what I owed not what I had
I had to laugh, I had to laugh, before I left.

I didn't foresee the way the day would run away from me
the thoughts of you that got me through
You're like a prism casting rainbows on the carpet of my soul
The story unfolds
Your hand I hold
Your love is gold

And you, you you you -oo -oo
were never far from my heart
it’s true -oo -oo -oo -oo it’s true, it’s true, it’s true, it’s true, it’s true.
Track Name: Way Down Low
WAY DOWN LOW

Way down low, the dream is dead and gone
I’m in a hole,
Blackness has my brain.
Never want to feel the pain
Write another lonely song again.

Way down low, a downward slope
Looked around but I got nothing
Throw me down some rope
Never want to feel the pain
Write another lonely song again.

Way down low, down so low. Solo.
Such a sinking feeling
Wading through the snow.
Never want to feel the pain
Write another lonely song again.

Way down low, I need some hope
My kingdom for some light.
A decent heart and soul.
Never want to feel the pain
Write another lonely song again.
