Out of Tune I’m never done being wrong All I see ahead is blinding me Insecure and hoping you’re Going to find a better way to be But all that’s different from today And the things that stay the same But I can’t find the words to state what you’d assume We’re out of tune Reasoning and opting in For all I know there could be nothing wrong You’ve got to hide how you feel inside The time to let it go has come and gone But all that’s different from today And the things that stay the same But I can’t find the words to state what you’d assume We’re out of tune It makes you worried I make you worry But I’ll be fine, I’ll be fine

I Thought I Was OK I’m not scared, I’m quite prepared For all my dreams to fall apart and walk away I’d unwind, I’d have time I wouldn’t have to fight to stop them turning grey All the while, all the while I thought I was OK I’ll ignore when I get bored Passing up the chances to be sociable Staying in and orbiting Around the people and places I am comfortable All the while, all the while I thought I was OK
3.
It’s Still Raining When it comes around I’ll be there Without making sound, I’d be fair If I had a choice I’d run away I’d unhear your voice, I’d make it fade And even when the clouds have passed It’s still raining here And when the sun appears at last It’s still raining here Should I help you out and spend my time Wondering all about what’s in your mind If I had a choice I’d run away I’d unhear your voice, I’d make it fade And even when the clouds have passed It’s still raining here And when the sun appears at last It’s still raining here I can see it clearly now the mess has gone We can go further We can go further It’s still raining here

Faraway Places Saying it’s nothing to me won’t make it happen and easier to breathe Speaking without a new plan won’t shift your burden or I’d understand It’s true, where you should be Are faraway places from me But you could never concede and never believe Meaning the words that I say is getting harder everyday Singing the songwriter’s words won’t make you feel them no matter the chords It’s true, where you should be Are faraway places from me But you could never concede and never believe There’s ways to grow up without getting older But you could never concede and never believe

Come Around Another year begins and brings me back to life But it gets hard to start again In a week or two of holding on to it I find I need to call on you Come around cause I haven’t got a clue Come around cause you’ll know just what to do Come around cause I haven’t got a clue When in doubt, I turn to you There’s no one to blame but I can’t get hold of you The shapes appearing are the same Focussed on a phone and it never helps but should I can’t do this on my own Come around cause I haven’t got a clue Come around cause you’ll know just what to do Come around cause I haven’t got a clue When in doubt, I turn to you In these different situations I end up feeling just the same But I don’t know what’s wrong Maybe I should go for where I once belonged

Giving Way Looking far behind, I should know you better now But I don’t Seeing what I’ll find, if I look much further in But I won’t It’s kicking off again But I would not say it twice Though you seem to need advice, everyday There’s no sign you’re giving way Thinking remains unclear, I should change my point of view If I could Knowing all the tricks, I could find a way back through I know I should It’s kicking off again But I would not say it twice Though you seem to need advice, everyday There’s no sign you’re giving way But I want what I say I would walk right away But I want what I say I could make time today

All I Understand I’m all for making plans When it comes to spending time, just me and you But I end up feeling lost Holding on to then All the happy places we had come to love Does holding on come at a cost? All I understand is enough for me to know it’s you But I don’t know what to do Tied up in a knot Tripping over words that make no sense to me I have tried to sharpen up Wholly unprepared I may be last but I am learning to care less And I know it’s down to luck All I understand is enough for me to know it’s you But I don’t know what to do Every time I seem to stall I get a little further on And when you try to break my fall I seem to be left on my own On my own once more

Blue Skies In the haze of early morning Village life will pass me by And while my head spells out warnings And my heart wants to cry Winters leave me shattered But you’re all that matters I don’t know you now Blue skies are for following I take a walk past the river Like you it turns away from here I think of all we used to live for And now I know it’ll disappear Winters leave me shattered But you’re all that matters I don’t know you now Blue skies are for following Where you go I’ll follow you Where you go I’ll follow you Where you go I’ll follow you

Fed Up Thinking of You It’s a long way to walk home When you’re cold and on your own Freezing time can’t fix your head Keep your mind on what’s ahead So, lighten up Don’t take yourself too seriously, I’m bored And fed up thinking of you Look out the fake news comes again Like a bullet to the brain So, lighten up Don’t take yourself too seriously, I’m bored And fed up thinking of you I can’t say nothing now I’ve been hanging around here too long I can’t say nothing now I’ve been hanging around here too long I’m fed up thinking of you
10.
Even When You’re Gone Wake me up, I’m slowly coming round To what’s been clear to you I’m not blind but I can’t open up And bring myself in view I not scared that I’m right I don’t care if I am liked I just want to be assured I’m not alone Even when you’re gone Falling down, my better plans have gone I’m what you said I’d be But you’re not blind and you can’t open up And steer yourself to me I not scared that I’m right I don’t care if I am liked I just want to be assured I’m not alone Even when you’re gone
11.
See you there Where did it all fall down out of place? Was I there? And what will you say if you get your wish? It might come true Stay If you go and find a better way I’ll meet you there Wait In another place we could meet I’ll see you there I’ll see you there Take what I tell you now with my love I want you to And make all the time you have for yourself If you can Stay If you go and find a better way I’ll meet you there Wait In another place we could meet I’ll see you there I’ll see you there You’re climbing a mountain Good bye is unfair
12.
Turning of the Tide If you find you’re losing heart Then before it falls apart You’d better go now And find another way I’ve done all that I can do And it’s hard to see it through But I’m done now I found another way And when June should shower some sun on me I just find the same old gloom And too soon the Summer has gone And followed you Spending days of endless thoughts Remember what I forgot For good reason I know what I shouldn’t do And yet still I get my way I make sure it’s on display Even though I know It’s what I shouldn’t do Anywhere you think of me I’ll be thinking of you And any time you miss this fun Come around The tide will turn The tide will turn
