Track Name: The Neighbours
Thinkin' 'bout the neighbours
Wonderin' who's around
Thinkin' 'bout the neighbours
So I can't make a sound, can't make a sound

Thinkin' 'bout the neighbours
My bedroom walls are thin
Thinkin' 'bout the neighbours
So I can't let you in, can't let you in

And these walls are so thin that darling I fear to be
Heard by the neighbours so you can't be here
Thinkin' 'bout the neighbours
So I can't let you in, can't let you in.

Thinkin' 'bout the neighbours
The neighbours know your voice
Got too many neighbours
So I don't have a choice, don't have a choice

According to the neighbours
We would be a sin
Gotta keep it from the neighbours
So I can't let you in, can't let you in

And these walls are so thin that darling I fear to be
Heard by the neighbours so you can't be here
Thinkin' 'bout the neighbours
So I can't let you in, can't let you in.

And these walls are so thin that darling I fear to be
Heard by the neighbours so you can't be here
Thinkin' 'bout the neighbours
So I can't let you in, can't let you in.

According to the neighbours
We would be a sin
Gotta keep it from the neighbours
So I can't let you in, can't let you in
No I can't let you in, can't let you in
No I can't let you in.
Track Name: Staring into Your Eyes
You're only a moment away
Thousands of miles away
I see your face
I see my sadness in your face
But I can't hold you now
No one can hold you now
I get too near
You disappear, and I'm confused
So when I waste my time with you
I spend it

Chorus:
Staring into your eyes
Staring into your eyes
You are more to me than you will ever know.

You give me so much pain
Yours is the sweetest pain
You keep me here
You keep me trapped forever here
But I would not live free
I cannot be free
With just your will
You hold me still, and it's unknown
How many hours I spend alone
With you just

Chorus

'Cause you can't believe what you don't want to believe
That I have loved you
I have always loved you

And you can't believe what you don't want to believe
But I have loved you
I have always loved you
Can you see it?
If you look you'll see it
Staring into my eyes.

Chorus

You're only a moment away
Thousands of miles away
Track Name: I Take Your Time
I take your time, I take your time

I'm just like all the other girls
I'm not the first, and not the last one
I'm just like all the other girls
I know because I asked the last one

I take your time
Make the hours go when you have nothing to do
I ease your mind
But that doesn't show that I mean something to you
I take your time

I'm just like all the other girls
I don't know why you say you need me
Just like all the other girls
You hold my hand and say you need me

You took your time
Watched the hours go like you had nothing to do
You changed your mind
'Til you came to know that I mean something to you
But you took your time

I take your time
Make the hours go when you have nothing to do
I ease your mind
But that doesn't show that I mean something to you
I take your time

I'm just like all your other girls
But at the least you don't ignore me
I'm just giving this a whirl
I'll play the part until you bore me

You take my time
Make the hours go when I have nothing to do

I take your time
Make the hours go when you have nothing to do
I ease your mind
But that doesn't show that I mean something to you
I just take your time, I take your time
Track Name: Helen (Don't Launch Your Ships)
You saw my face
It started your rebellion
If you were the king
Then I could be your Helen

But I was called away to live
Upon a foreign shore
I don't believe that you should start a war
To die in glory

Chorus:
Don't launch your ships for me
I belong across the ocean
You are playing with destiny
And I can't breath with you staring at me.

You still have it all
So think what you are doing
Your cities could fall
Your house could come to ruin
If I could change my heart
You know you are the one I'd choose
But you're the one with everything to lose
And what's the use? So

Chorus

If I was not to know
That I could never feel the same
You have to know that you are not to blame
And it's a shame, it's a shame

Chorus

Don't launch your ships for me
I belong across the ocean
And I just can't, no I can't
I can't breathe with you staring at me.
Track Name: Meaningless I Love You
You came at night
To let me see
That you were quite
In love with me
If it was your intention to get my attention
I could never listen seeing your position

When I found you'd said it all
The point was drowned in alcohol
Of course I would be doubting incoherent shouting
Words that should be tender
Bet you don't remember

Meaningless "I love you"
From under the door
Meaningless "I love you"
From under the door
I've heard it before.

When morning came
Before a crowd
You said the same
But twice as loud
Your vivid indiscretion causing me to question
What you could be thinking
How late were you drinking?

Meaningless "I love you"
From under the door
Impossible "I love you"
From over the floor
I've heard it before.

Now at last
With sense returned
The madness past
The lesson learned
So if you are regretting what you said, forgetting,
I give you reprieve for I did not believe your

Meaningless "I love you"
From under the door
Impossible "I love you"
From over the floor
Meaningless "I love you"
From under the door
Impossible "I love you"
From over the floor
I've heard it before.
Track Name: Perfect Hair
Such a beauty, this fresh Adonis
His body takes your breath away
But the vision remains a statue
Because he has nothing to say

And you want to think he is more than a dream
But he is less than he seems

He's got perfect hair
He's got perfect eyes
A perfect smile but the rest is all lies
All lies, lies, lies

See him posing in the corner
You hope he'll rest his gaze on you
But he is working his agenda
You didn't even make page two.

His peacock display, it can hide what you miss
But it shows who he is

He's got perfect hair
(You know he knows it, he knows you know it too)
He's got perfect eyes
(You know he knows it, he knows you know it too)
A perfect smile
(You know he knows it, he knows you know it too)
But the rest is all lies
(You know he knows it, he knows you know it too)
All lies, lies, lies

You are lonely in the desert
So he becomes your fantasy
This oasis, just illusion
A ghost of what you want to see
But gone is the time when you'd run from the facts
Now you see what he lacks

He's got perfect hair
(You know he knows it, he knows you know it too)
He's got perfect eyes
(You know he knows it, he knows you know it too)
He's got a perfect smile
(You know he knows it, he knows you know it too)
But the rest is all lies
(You know he knows it, he knows you know it too)
All lies, lies, lies
Track Name: The Wings to Fly Again
There was a time when I could fly
My wings were blue and gold
'Til one day I got old
Then I could never be so high
I tumbled to the ground
I came crashing down

Where everything that once was easy was
Suddenly so hard
And I don't have the wings to fly again.

I let fear become my cage
I couldn't go outside, no matter how I tried
Too close to feel my rage
The sadness in my heart tearing me apart

Searching for the confidence to find a way beyond
But I don't have the wings to fly again.

I hope that maybe someday I'll be free
I hope that maybe someday I'll be me
I hope that maybe someday I will be
What I used to be

Then all that you will see will be my
Shadow on the ground
For then I'll have the wings to fly again.
For then I'll have the wings to fly again.
Track Name: He's Almost Gone
She's all anticipation for the day when he comes home
But she must accept that more often than not she is alone
So she writes she's happy with an exclamation point or two
If it's on Facebook, it must be true.

She savours each snapshot of him then shares it with the world
Hoping each will be the one that proves she's such a lucky girl
Placing captions carefully for she has nothing else to do
If it's on Facebook, it must be true.

Chorus:
And so she tells ten thousand strangers he's the sweetest man alive
Spends her days composing statuses to prove that she's arrived
And she prays nobody notices she barely can survive
Because she knows he's almost gone.

One day she notices she's not heard from him in a while
And she can't afford the effort it is costing her to smile
So she hacks into his log and there the bits and bytes concur
That he's on Facebook, but not with her.

Chorus

But he's the only person she has chosen to adore
She pretends she hasn't seen it, like so many times before
Then she finds his profile page and posts another "I love you"
If it's on Facebook, it must be true
It's on Facebook, who knows, it might be true.

Chorus
Track Name: The Moment When We Were In Love
I didn't wanna leave
I want to stay in your arms
I didn't wanna go
I want the rest of your charms
And I want to pretend
That this is not the end

Chorus:
I wanna stay, I wanna play
I wanna play the game, wanna stay in the place
Where you need me
And you are free

I didn't wanna leave
I want the taste of your kiss
I didn't wanna go
I want to feel what I miss
And you look so good
It's hard to do what I should

Chorus

But this is just fantasy
For you can't be with me
I wanna change, to rearrange
I wanna change, to rearrange

Chorus

I want to stay in the moment when we were in love
I know that there was a moment when we were in love
I want to stay in the moment when we were in love
Can we go back to the moment when we were in love?
