Track Name: What Did She Say
Woke up early this morning,
Shot straight out of bed,
Was she serious about walking?

Oh, what did she say to me?
What did she say to me? x 2
I don’t know,
I don’t know,

Stepped out of the bedroom,
Found her sat on the stairs,
She turned to me and I questioned

Oh, what did you say to me?
What did ou say to me? x 2
I don’t know,
I don’t know,

She said, if it’s alright,
We’ll leave last night behind,
I’m sorry for being so unruly,
If this was a test,
Then I guess that,
True love never ran smoothly

Oh, that’s what she said to me,
That’s what she said to me, x2
Now, I know, and now you know
Instrumental

She said, if it’s alright,
We’ll leave last night behind,
I’m sorry for being so unruly,
If this was a test,
Then I guess that,
True love never ran smoothly
Track Name: She's a Rebel
She’s a rebel,
Yeah I know,
Her middle name should be trouble,
‘cos she breaks the mould

I jumped ship before she made me walk the plank,
She’s search for a heart that she hasn’t sank,
Oh, She’s a rebel
Yeah

Maybe,
She’s misunderstood,
But I doubt she’d explain it,
Even if she could

Maybe she’s the right girl who knows just what she wants,
She’s just called a rebel ‘cos she ain’t like everyone else
Track Name: In The Morning
In the morning,
With you I feel right,
In the morning,
I wake up with sunlight

Whispers crawl across our skin,
Mark last nights antics with a grin,
Reigniting,
Feelings that have grown,
Picking at wild oats we have sown,
How exciting

In the morning,
With you I spent the night,
In the morning,
My eyes put up a fight

To stay open to the pain,
The thought that I have missed the train,
Oh darling,
To close and dream once more,
Until moments before,
The alarm and,

In the morning,
I wouldn’t change a thing,
In the morning,
At peace with everything

If I never saw you again,
I’d pray this moment would never end

In the morning,
With you I feel right,
In the morning,
Wake up with sunlight,

In the morning,
I wake up with you,
In the morning,
It’s what we do
Track Name: Fool's Gold
You’ve got to wear your mask,
Hide the secrets you keep,
Run with the wolves at night,
Find a new place to sleep

Well, you keep asking for more,
I think you don’t know,
There lies dangerous ice,
Beneath the bright white snow

But if you’re digging for truth,
Then you may just find,
Crying in the telephone booth,
You’ve got to leave this behind,
Sometimes you pay a high price,
Take a risk to be bold,
All for what to be told,
That you’re fools,
That’s you’re fools,

You’re fools gold x 4
Hey, you fool

Do you not recognise?
Your dull reflection,
Should I sympathise,
With lack of affection,

‘cos you’ve been digging for truth,
And you’ve just found out,
That crying away your youth,
Is what you’re all about,
Sometimes you pay a high price,
You take a risk to be bold,
All for what? To be told
That you’re fools,
That you’re fools,

You’re fools gold, x4
Hey, you fool

You’ve got to wear your mask,
Hide the secrets you keep,
Run with the wolves at night,
and find a new place to sleep
Track Name: Whispers In The Cold
Whispers in the cold,
I guess my secrets have been told,
Out with the new in with the old,
The only regret that I hold,
Is telling you the dark parts of my life,
Only for you to pull out your knife,
Baby, it’s true,
Whispers in the cold leave me feeling blue

Nothing’s going to change the way,
I feel about you,
Wish I could trust,
But I just can’t seem to get through

Whispers in the cold,
Another story of mine’s been sold,
I got what I’m due,
But I still hold,
All the secrets I never told,
To you and your friends,
And to all my peers,
I guess I should just volunteer,
To go stand in the snow,
Selling secrets in the cold,
For you to know, that

Nothing’s going to change the way,
I feel about you,
Wish I could trust,
But I just can’t seem to get through

Whispers in the cold x5
Track Name: Thought I Knew You
Broken mirrors and staring at the screen,
All your summers with Cetirizine,
Winter rolls in your still my queen,
Thought I knew you at seventeen,

Oh, you’re pushing for me to climb,
You got yours and I got mine,
We’re victims of a victimless crime,
Thought I knew you at the time

Since then, things have changed,
Don’t know the story but I know the name,
Got played by your clever game,
Thought I knew you ain’t that a shame,

Well you left me hanging out to dry,
With sad songs from your hi-fi
We’re victims of a victimless crime,
I thought I knew you at the time

I thought I knew you x5
Track Name: Shed No Tears
It’s not what I want,
But I need it,
Before I start,
I’m left defeated,
And I’ve already conceded,
But you left and I just pleaded

You miss all your memories,
And you hide from all your fears,
Your lips they dry much quicker now,
Your eyes they shed no tears,
Yeah your eyes, they shed no tears

You sit in your tower,
Holding on to the power,
You do nothing but shower,
In the gold you stripped me of,
In the gold you stripped me of,

You miss all your memories,
And you hide from all your fears,
Your lips they dry much quicker now,
Your eyes they shed no tears,
Yeah your eyes, they shed no tears
Track Name: Goodnight, Godbless
Look to the sky,
Brightest star it must be you,
Ten years ago,
I lost what I knew,
When I remember,
You were always someone who,

Went an extra mile,
To show everyone love,
Would hold a smile,
When times got tough,
If there’s anyone that I could see,
No doubt in my mind who it would be,
Saying Goodnight, Godbless to me
Goodnight, Godbless she’d say to me

Went an extra mile,
To show everyone love,
Would hold a smile,
When times got tough
Track Name: Hold On
Just like in the winter,
The dark dawns early,
I’ve got a feeling,
The end will come to be,
But it’s not a shock, no,
It’s not a surprise,
We should leave it now,
Decide with the sunrise

Maybe we should just hold on, hold on,
Hope gives us a chance to breathe,
Baby we should just hold on, hold on,
Postpone the misery

Baby, I’ve been thinking,
That people come a go,
I think it’s time now,
We let our feelings show,
It’s not about who’s right or,
What we did wrong,
It’s about the future,
And how we must stay strong

I think we should just hold on, hold on,
Hope gives us a chance to breathe,
Baby we should just hold on, hold on,
Postpone the misery

And who said that time can heal?
And who said that I should feel?

Maybe we should just hold on, hold on,
Hope gives us a chance to breathe,
Baby we should just hold on, hold on,
Postpone the misery

I think we should just hold on, hold on,
Hope gives us a chance to breathe,
Baby we should just hold on, hold on,
Postpone the misery
Track Name: Don't Be So Cruel
Just don’t be so cruel,
It’s not been easy for me too,

If we could lay off the pressure,
Hold hands through the weather,
Then I know,
Yeah I know,

If we could all come together,
Catch a train to wherever,
Let’s go,
Yeah, let’s go

Just don’t be so cruel,
It’s not been easy for me too,

I don’t want to be something,
‘cos without you I’m nothing,
I’m gone,
Long gone,

I’ve tried to make it better,
With this song and every letter,
Oh come on,
Oh come on

Just don’t be so cruel,
It’s not been easy for me too,

Just don’t be so cruel,
It’s not been easy for me too
