Track Name: Lonely One
How are you my lonely one?
I've lost the skills that I require
I have no clues to your desires

How are you my lonely one?
I'm distant here and vacant there
You'll never see me through my stare

How are you my lonely One?
I would love to stay and ask you more but I
Keep a wolf out of my door
Why don't I open up my cell my lonely one?

How are you my only one?
Neglection is my tactic here
I'll never make it through my fears
How are you my only one?
Single owner of my spectrum
and I neglect all my attention

How are you my lonely one?
It's been a while
I tend to run a mile when I
See the truth knocking on my door
Why dong I open up my cell my lonely one?

How are you my lovely one?
It's been a while your looking well
As if I can ever tell
How are you my lovely one?
Sitting looking oh so nice
can I break through this wall of ice?

How are you my lonely one?
It's been a while
I tend to run a mile when I
See the truth knocking on my door
Why dong I open up my cell my lonely one?

How are you my lonely One?
I would love to stay and ask you more but I
Keep a wolf out of my door
Why don't I open up my cell my lonely one?
Track Name: Sweet Heart
Well it's not my fault
If I feel the same
Scrounging for the dregs
From bottle left outside your home

And it's not my fault
But I must admit I'm ill
I got a gift receipt but I
Haven't learned how to
Swallow the pill

And it's not my fault
If I still respond
When you say sweet heart
You know that used to be my name too

Scanning photographs
For pieces in the stills
Words we never said
But left on the windowsill

I got your credit card
I got an image of a fall
I got a guilty feeling from
Never having called

But it's not my fault
If I still respond
When you say sweet heart
You know that used to be my name too
Track Name: Sorry Song
I'm sorry darling
but I've been tired for 48 hours by now
I'm sorry darling
but I aint ever been out of other people minds before
I'm sorry darling
I just can't eat any more I've been sick for days
Can't wait will I'm not frightened any more

I'm sorry darling that all I ever wanna do
Is get tangled up with you

I'm sorry darling
That I still live with my mother
I'm sorry honey I've only worked
Three shifts this week
I'm sorry darling
That you've got to start at 10 and
All I want is for you to just roll over again

I'm sorry darling that all I ever wanna do
Is get tangled up with you

I'm sorry darling
but I lost all confidence today
I'm sorry darling
look at the mess I made
I'm sorry darling
better cross this one out
And start again an other day

But most of all I'm sorry
For apologising to you
That's all I ever seem to do
when I'm with you
I'm sorry darling that all I ever wanna do
Is get tangled up with you
Track Name: Fire In Between
Now I won't pretend
I don't feel something here
Don't tell me
You'll try to hide
And try to deny
What you feel inside

Like you don't feel
A fire in between
But I wont let down
A friend

Now you act as if
You got it all
Without a miss
But I see you
I see you inside
And I just don't believe

That you don't feel
A fire in between
But I wont deny a friend

I look around
I look behind
and I know
I can't hide

And that you don't feel
A fire in between
But I wont deny
There is a fire in between
No I wont deny
The fire in between
But I wont deny a friend
Track Name: Whatever Floats Your Boat
Now I don't rock the boat
But I might change the not
I don't make a plan
I just do the best I can
Whatever's gonna float your boat

Now I was just a kid
I just hid
But not I know the score
I will open any door

Now I'm not organized
I just play in time
I don't make a plan
I jut do the best I can
Whatever's gonna float your boat

Now this is only folk
I hope yous can take a joke
It's been hanging round a while
Going in and out of style
But I hope that it can float your boat

Well it's a simple little rhyme
This didn't take me a lot of time
These songs are just for fun
They don't hurt anyone
But I hope that the can float your boat

Now I been thinking life's the same
You don't need to play their games
Just take her by the hand
Travel to a distant land
Whatever's gonna float your boat.
