Save Myself (A. Taylor) I do not write to save I do not write to save myself To save myself I know it’s right to tell I know it’s right to tell myself To tell myself I‘ve gone back to take it forward Once again I’ll start afresh Even when I was younger I would fight till you’d begin I would fight till you’d begin I will not wait to fail I will not wait to fail myself To fail myself I‘ve gone back to take it forward Once again I’ll start afresh Even when I was younger I would fight till you’d begin I would fight till you’d begin

I’m Over It (A.Taylor) I’ll find a way to say what’s on my mind I won’t forget to see you all this time Will you please take the time to see I’m over it I know you don’t believe in me My better days are unprepared or planned I find it works for me to understand Will you please take the time to see I’m over it I know you don’t believe in me I know you won’t agree I’m listening to what you have to say And finding out that I was in your way Will you please take the time to see I’m over it I know you don’t believe in me Will you please take the time to see I’m over it I know you don’t believe in me

I Wish I Knew (A.Taylor) It’s getting hard to hear you and the things I thought you said But I know that in my heart nothing was right Hoping not to notice even though you’ve had a few You know that no one in your way would put up a fight And didn’t you have the chance to blow it in a hundred different ways If you were with me then I never knew It wouldn’t have lasted long It never could If you thought that I was counting on the space In the messages of love you sent to me Looking for a way to show it and the strength to follow through On the things I promised to deliver to you But didn’t I have the chance to show it in a hundred different ways If you were with me then I never knew It wouldn’t have lasted long It never could How’d you get to be misunderstood Singing a different song I wish I knew

Where Do You Think I Went Wrong? (A.Taylor) White, white on grey Try to keep it vague And hope my thoughts don’t show Make sure these words don’t flow It hurts, so they say To lock it all away And hope my trust won’t go Make sure these words don’t flow Please don’t throw my love away I don’t see Where do think I went wrong? Trying to say the right words all along Where do you think I went wrong? I don’t know, I don’t know Red, red on black To show you are back And make my feelings known So I can show I’ve grown Make my feelings known So I can show I’ve grown Please don’t throw my love away
5.
Out Of Love Again (R. Taylor, A. Taylor, A. Douglass) The shouts – I hear her down the stairwell Alone and trapped just like before Leaving a note upon the table He took his eyes off the door The Silver Jews are on the radio They’re out of love again I’ve got my headphones near So no one has to hear but me The last light to leave the corridor As if it had never shone that way before The lovers are about to start again She swept his feet off the floor The Silver Jews are on the radio They’re out of love again I’ve got my headphones near So no one has to hear but me

Wake Me In The Morning (A.Taylor) I didn’t lie I didn’t lie Sitting alone by your side I didn’t hide What could I say? What could I say? Feeling I had to bide time I didn’t hide Reason with me Reason with me Open your heart to the path Walk it with me And I didn’t lie I didn’t lie Sitting alone by your side I didn’t hide Wake me in the morning when you go I’ll see you soon Wake me in the morning when you go I’ll see you soon

Homeward (A.Taylor) I’m guessing you can tell what’s on my mind Knowing what I should do is hard sometimes And I don’t think it’s better but I can’t find Another way homeward For a while, you’ve been on my mind I’ve told you twice, I know I’ll say again I understand the way things stay the same I don’t think it’s better but I can’t find Another way homeward For a while, you’ve been on my mind Looking out for things in my way Try to follow home Moving clear of things in my way Remember what I’ve known And it show it hasn’t gone I don’t think it’s better but I can’t find Another way homeward For a while, you’ve been on my mind Another way homeward For a while, you’ve been on my mind

Slow Down (A. Taylor) Years ago would I have really minded? I would know, I wouldn’t be in doubt Now I find I’m questioning my feelings What is mine? Now I’m finding out But I don’t really think like that these days I don’t feel like talking back these days When I’m around you Slow down, say what you’re feeling Now slow down, say what you’re feeling I don’t know if I’m keeping up with you Falling down, I’m worn out over thinking I have found it’s better left unsaid Now I find I’m facing new directions And the time’s to follow where I’m led I don’t really think like that these days I don’t feel like talking back these days When I’m around you Slow down, say what you’re feeling Now slow down, say what you’re feeling I don’t know if I’m keeping up with you

A Long Way To Go (A.Taylor) I should have known that you wanted more than I had to give My understanding is not secure, flawed as it is Friday is almost there But I’m not sure how to make you care I have a long way to go I wouldn’t notice if you weren’t there, I’d make a plan Finding my feet just to show I care, making a stand Friday is almost there But I’m not sure how to make you care I have a long way to go
10.
Think For Yourself (A.Taylor) Who is it that makes the claim that might lead anywhere? I can hear the words again, they follow me everywhere I’ve learned to feel I’ve learned to say I’ve learned to think for myself, making my own way I’ve learned to feel I’ve learned to think for myself, making my own way Leaving you alone works best but you might come anyway Leave you to enjoy the rest while I work everyday I’ve learned to feel I’ve learned to say I’ve learned to think for myself, making my own way I’ve learned to feel I’ve learned to think for myself, making my own way
