Breakdown Don’t want to wait Don’t want to sit down all day But when it’s fate I’m not in any hurry I have a choice just like you have no money When I’m away you think I’m acting funny It’s like a breakdown for you Just wait for the call but I don’t know how to fix it all Breakdown for you And will it go What did I say to make you turn round on me? I’ll take it back – just tell you that I’m sorry Make up the truth like it is just a story Though I’m no use – your words that flow straight through me It’s like a breakdown for you Just wait for the call but I don’t know how to fix it all Breakdown for you And will it go It’s like a breakdown for you Just wait for the call but I don’t know how to fix it all Breakdown for you And will it go

Only For Yourself Take a walk to clear your head From hearing over what you said Time would make you justify And if only for yourself you question why People tell you what to do They have no right to bother you And the take exception when you sigh And if only for yourself you question why And so you try to find a place to hide And if only for yourself you question why Going nowhere on your own Never notice where you’re going Expectations are too high And if only for yourself you question why And if only for yourself you question why

OBVIOUS If you want to stay or go I don’t really mind If you can’t decide today if you’ll be fine But if your heart was aching I wouldn’t miss a thing ‘Cause you are in the grooves of the records that I spin If I was a song I’d be too obvious Like starting with a riff, ending in a double chorus But if my heart was breaking would you feel a thing Like the notes of songs I know I can’t really sing If you want to go or stay I don’t really mind If you can’t decide today if you’ll be fine But if your heart was breaking you would hold the key And maybe realise it’s you and it is me

Figure it out Billy was a loser who needed money, never got what he deserved Tried to sell his soul on ebay but the devil wouldn’t meet the reserve Stumbles home at night after 15 whiskeys and chips with his doner pizza Drops half the food in the gutter for the rats and the gulls to feed on He’ll figure it out someday he’ll figure it out He says he gonna win someday He’s gonna fix it Sometimes on the bus he’ll sit next to strangers even though there’s plenty seats He spouts his opinions on politics, Prince William and Suarez Teeth He points out the sights through the steamed up windows telling her what he’s done there Then the stranger stands up and talks to him and says you know I don’t even care He’ll figure it out someday he’ll figure it out He says he gonna win someday He’s gonna fix it

Give It Back As far as I could see all my friends and me We’d all been done again though we never even wanted it Some sunny afternoon still seeing last nights moon Oh please don’t go away but it never listened anyway Come on back me up Don’t I deserve that much You shout at me again So I just give it back I just give it back Honey I’m too small to climb higher walls I’d fall off and hit the ground with a crash crash crashing sound The bus to Aberdeen takes me through those hills I see To the town full of girlfriends but it’s coming to an end Come on back me up Don’t I deserve that much You shout at me again So I just give it back I just give it back Bright lampshade in the corner And I’m tired of washing up So I just pull the plug

Good Vibes I've been getting those good vibrations Good vibrations now that you're gone Good vibrations those sounds from my heart Flowing through my veins (repeat) For all my mild elations this surely is the one And though I talk a lot I know I can't be wrong For all my weeks frustrations I've been so undone You know I'll stand my ground even if I've none I've been getting those good vibrations Good vibrations now that you're gone Good vibrations those sounds from my heart Flowing through my veins (repeat) You say my concentration is bound to let me down I say that's not the reason it's living in this town I'm going to make some changes I'm getting out tomorrow Then I look into your eyes they seem to show no sorrow Good vibrations good vibrations(this surely is the one) Good vibrations good vibrations(I know I can't be wrong) Good vibrations good vibrations(I'm getting out tomorrow) Good vibrations good vibrations(They seem to show no sorrow)

Crisps And Irn Bru You eat salad at lunchtime, everyday the same You dream about chips and mars bars But know you must stay thin Cause skinny’s good that’s what they say Your clothes don’t fit but that’s Ok You don’t need crisps and irn bru She don’t need him but he needs you You’re at the gym every evening Watch the calories burn You think you’ve got a beer belly Beneath your toned, flat tum Cause skinny’s good that’s what they say Your clothes don’t fit but that’s OK You don’t need crisps and irn bru She don’t need him but he needs you Sometimes you walk slowly and then you run away before you think about things Sometimes you ask questions but then you don’t listen, be sure that you’re never in And he hopes you are happy Now you’re a size six But he wants the old you back But it’s too late to fix

Dog and Cat I just want to stand outside and girl I never want to hide You just want to stay in doors Promise me you’ll give me more Tell me what you wanna do, tell me what you wanna do I want you to Don’t forget to ask me why all your dreams may reach the sky Hang around for long enough You’ll be strong and I’ll be tough Tell me what you wanna do, tell me what you wanna do I want you to Well, lately I’ve discovered that you’re a dog and I’m a cat That still doesn’t bother me Cause you’re the one I wanna see Tell me what you wanna do, tell me what you wanna do I want you to

Where I’m From My time is precious now, I’ve not got long I’m nearer the finish line than from the front And when I’m away, away, away from home My thoughts take me back to where I’m from Taking the easy way to get things done Leaving the harder things to get some sun It’s taken a while, a while, I know it’s wrong But my thoughts take me back to where I’m from Leaving the door ajar to get some air Hoping the rain won’t come to leave me spare I’m never alone, alone and I don’t care But thoughts take me back to where…

Open Door I know where it lies, I know where you’re heading for Through the open door Thinking of a time, when it comes just turn around Speak what’s on your mind The sun gets in your eyes And blinds you from the lies Tell me, I’m not sure What you’re fighting for Thinking I would change when I said I’d turn away Knowing you would stay If I had given up, didn’t try to understand Tried to form a plan The sun gets in your eyes And blinds you from the lies Tell me, I’m not sure What you’re fighting for The sun gets in your eyes And blinds you from the lies Tell me, I’m not sure What you’re fighting for

Can’t Help It Sometimes you get so down but you never tell me And sometimes when I’m around It’s as if you’re trying not to see me And you know this feeling’s not the one you really want You say that it’s not your fault Cause you can’t help it I don’t mind your stories Just try and keep them simple I don’t care if you’ve got spots on your face Or hair growing from your dimples And you know this feeling’s not the one you really want You say that it’s not your fault Cause you can’t help it It’s much too late you’re out of time you’ve gone too far A little hate may wear you out before you start And you know this feeling’s not the one you really want You say that it’s not your fault Cause you can’t help it

When The Summer Comes Around I spent years swapping spit with St. Lucifer singing the words to his blues He says nobody love me or at least nobody says In exultant rays of gratitude my once was lost was found But I guess you had to be there when the summer comes around I spent Lent spinning tales with St. Pol Pot telling the truth to his lies He says nobody loves me or at least nobody tries Saw that his halo wasn’t glowing and it wasn’t even round But I guess you had to be there when the summer comes around It’s all for kicks, it’s all for kicks I spent Christmas in the sun with St. J Stalin juggling his pigs at his fez He says nobody loves me or at least nobody says And when the fun was drained from politics they red-painted the town But I guess you had to be there when the summer comes around Well I guess you had to be there when the summer comes around
