Come Home Written by Andrew Taylor You told me not to think aloud Look after myself and try to be home soon Take a leaf out of your book Taking my time and lie if I had to Come home, Come home Testing what you could recall Finding your feet, never in doubt of Failing at the things you love Forever in fear of facing the climb down Come home, come home Where are you to go after this, trying to move on Where are you to go, after this, trying to move on Come home, Come home Come home, Come home

When It Starts Written by Andrew Taylor When it always starts, waiting till we part Going on in my head, you’re there Taking over mind, thoughts are in decline Overboard, take me as I am Feelings incomplete, dying on your feet Never them, connecting dots again I’ll go, go anywhere with you I’ll go, go anywhere with you I’ll go, go anywhere with you I’ll go, go anywhere with you When it always ends, waiting time sets in Going on, in my head you’re there

Halfway Round Again Written by Andrew Taylor Why’d you want to be hiding today? Why’s it always so hard for you stay? It wouldn’t hurt you to guess what I want It wouldn’t take you a long time to run Why’s it always much harder for you? I know what that’s like, I know what that’s like Did you really have to stop trying too? I know what that’s like, I know what that’s like Where’s the love that you’re locking away? Where’s the words that you want me to say? It’d help if you guessed what I thought Then I wouldn’t be expected to talk Why’s it always much harder for you? I know what that’s like, I know what that’s like Did you really have to stop trying too? I know what that’s like, I know what that’s like I’d like to meet you when we’re halfway round again (x4)

Some People Written by Alastair Taylor Some people, they don’t go home Some people, they stay too long They never believe you when it’s time to go They’re always too slow Some people, they tell you lies Some people still act surprised When they tell you stories but you never laugh Too clever by half Believe what they say and you’ll feel better Pack your things and hop aboard Don’t ever look back, it’s all behind now You don’t need them anymore

Jump Start Written by Andrew Taylor I’m all out of plans in my diary I’ll sit on my hands in the same old way I don’t mind what you tell me, I won’t take it to heart It’s alright if you blame me, I just jumped at the start Feelings never change even if they should Knowing they’ll remain, if you only could I don’t mind what you tell me, I won’t take it to heart It’s alright if you blame me, I just jumped at the start I don’t mind what you tell me, I won’t take it to heart It’s alright if you blame me, I just jumped at the start

Butterfly Written by Andrew Taylor I won’t know until it’s there I don’t plan to hide And when I find where to go I won’t look behind The grass has grown around your feet The time has almost gone You stand still while they all pass You have lost your will Maybe it’s only the timing that’s wrong Butterfly Easy done, overblown I will help you try To take the path, the one you need I will shine the light Maybe it’s only the timing that’s wrong Butterfly

Style Written by Andrew Taylor So wake up and start again if you know I need you So what if and when again if you want I need to Maybe the time is now, once in a while Take up the chance and see And change your style So face up and start your brain if you know it’s in there I won’t laugh and cry again, if you want I’ll be there Maybe the time is now, once in a while Take up the chance and see And change your style Why do you never finish what you start? Why waste your time instead of following your heart So wake up and start again if you know I need you So what if and when again, if you want I need to

Rainbows Written by Andrew Taylor I can’t stop chasing my tail, I don’t know what it means I always seem destined to fail reaching out for my dreams You’re always ready to speak even when you’re not asked The future can’t really be bleak as things in the past When I don’t know what to do, I listen to you Maybe the summer ahead will lighten my mood I always start dragging you down but you knew I would Lately there’s things on my mind that spiral away And nothing I try seems to work and nothing is great When I don’t know what to do, I listen to you When I don’t know what to do, I listen to you

Wishing Written by Andrew Taylor You say you have my trust Then say it’s not enough Half the time I’m wrong but then I’m right Half the time you won’t but then you might Stop wishing, you won’t have your life your way You say you’re insecure You fake being sure Half the time you’re there you want away Half the time it’s clear but turns opaque Stop wishing, you won’t have your life your way Half the time I’m wrong but then I’m right Half the time you won’t but then you might Stop wishing, you won’t have your life your way Stop wishing, you won’t have your life your way

It’s My Life (Not Ours) Written by Alastair Taylor What are you doing coming round here unannounced? I need some time all by myself Need to recover from the things I think I heard Or is it only in my head? Where are you going turn around and listen up Well did you hear a word I said? Your mouth looks happy but your eyes don’t hide the truth That you still wish that I was dead ‘Cause it’s not ours It’s my life, not ours It’s my life, not ours It’s my life, not ours Should it feel this good, not ours Should it be so good all the time? My time’s a wasting, not got long before I go I need to pack up all my things I’ve checked the oil and tyre pressure too But where I’m going I don’t know

Carry Me Home Written by Andrew Taylor I wish the sun would go down before You notice the sound It’s not the time to make peace in your book I know that now Wait here to lighten my load Or carry me home Wait here to lighten my load Or carry me home Words end, just close all your thoughts to the crowd Outside it’s bright Wait here to lighten my load Or carry me home Wait here to lighten my load Or carry me home
