Track Name: Miss Perfect
Verse One:
I was wasting time by the water’s edge/ Waiting for something to change but it never did/
Let’s sit down on the hillside/ Thinking about the things we never did try/
Can we just talk over a cup of tea/
Get out all the things that have been bothering me/
Maybe it’s in my head/
but I know the first thing I should have said//

Chorus:
Thank you miss perfect, for wasting my time/
Took me forever just to make up my mind/
Living life ain’t easy but it sure is fun/
But a little time a wasting never hurt anyone//

Verse Two:
So I said goodbye to my wandering mind/ thought I’d give my luck just another try/
I can drive away to the end of the sky/ maybe rest my head to a lullaby/
Can we just talk over a cup of tea/
Get out all the things that have been bothering me/
Maybe it’s in my head/
but I know the first thing I should have said//

Chorus:
Thank you miss perfect, for wasting my time/
Took me forever just to make up my mind/
Living life ain’t easy but it sure is fun/
But a little time a wasting never hurt anyone//

Final Chorus:
Thank you miss perfect, for being in my life/
Never knew anyone who could be so kind/
Living life ain’t easy but it sure is fun/
But a little time a wasting never hurt anyone//
Track Name: Late Nights
VERSE ONE:
Sometimes I can't sleep/ The thought of you preoccupies me/
Still visit you in my dreams/ but when I wake up you're out of my reach/ Maybe it's a good thing/ the farther the easier/ it is to cut strings/ and watch the photographs blur/ it's so easy to be alone/
or so I keep telling myself/ but I can't call this a home/ when I will never be someone else//

CHORUS:
Another late night but I can not write at all/
So many hours lost with times I can't recall/
Maybe I should just give up on breaking through/
What's the point when I can never talk to you//

VERSE TWO:
Maybe its a mistake/ I can hear you on a loop track/
repeting in my brain/ pint ot stop the play back/
maybe its a good thing/ cause I still want to hear your voice/
sometimes comforting/ even if its just noise/
Its so easy to be alone/ or so I keep telling myself/ but I can't make this a home/ when I will never be someone else//

CHORUS:
Another late night but I can not write at all/
So many hours lost with times I can't recall/
Maybe I should just give up on breaking through/
What's the point when I can never talk to you//
Track Name: Walls
Verse 1:

Open your heart and lend me a tener/ Break down the wall and I'll ask you to dinner/ bloke be a wise man I'm enterprising/ win in his eyes and it wouldn't be surprising/ sun rising I'm out from the previous/ night lasting too long mischievous/ underground parking still I take the bus/ dog is still barking try to make a fuss/ I had to get out to the country side/ clear out the cobwebs of my comfy life/ still I sit back and enjoy the ride/ but after all these years I still can't decide/tea with my coffee and cheddar with my wine/ a few bad letters to tell you I am fine/ write it all down with tunes and rhymes/ stop… that's where I draw the line//

Chorus 1:
It's never easy when a story ends/ like a bruise after a fall/ give it time and then we'll learn something/ and finally tear down these walls//

Verse 2:
You've got two more tries and you're out of the booth/ but I think my microphone is lyrical proof/ my minds out to lunch and he didn't bother compute/ these lines on time with the musical tune/ shoot, no surprise that I'm lighter/ still having trouble with my pen, I'm not a writer/ flip another stone and tip another tyre/ Mind out this whole stage on fire/ Give what I got oh no not a lot this way/ said the funky dj/ you gotta rock and I hold the spot highway/ skip a pitstop today/ I'm driving out of the west O/ now I'm queued up like I'm down at Tesco/ never thought I'd be any more than less though/ caffeine in me I'm ready to lets go//
Track Name: Bath Station
Just waiting at the station of a calm and damp Bath evening/ watching the couples scurry home/ one by one they disappear, in the cooling autumn air/ the voiceless traffic sings a sombre tone//

I remember back when that was us/ late night so adventurous/ mischievous/  loud music and devious kids/  lay back in the grass on a calm night/ kiss you tell you everything is alright/ it's true the only thing to see was the star light/ but who could've know they could be so bright/ we could draw in sky with our finger tips/ or I could trace up the side of your neck with my lips/ I think about you everywhere that I rome/ sometimes I just miss home//

Think back we were never alone/ 3 new texts on my mobile phone/ pick me up at home/ drive away, gone/  then try to figure out what street we're on/ pit stop for some coffee or tea/ I guess I never told you what was bothering me/ I'm too scared to commit baby/ so I backed off before we're in too deep/ I'm loosing sleep/ thinking of you/ questioning my actions and also my views/ I think back how you reacted to/ me heading out for a land thats new/ I think about the first time we kissed/ and all the good times that I would've missed/if we gave up and went our ways/ I would've never had these/ memories/ of our happy days//
