Track Name: Lovers of Life, Unite!
Lovers of Life, Unite, Unite.
Lovers of Life, Unite!
Not going down without a fight.
So Lovers of Life, Unite.

Cos if you've given up on trying
Then you're really only dying.

I was sick from a hole in the pit of my soul
And it took a while to come around
So I held it close like a hardship
Dosed with whatever I found

But I was young and cool and clever
And I was gonna live forever.

So when your gold and silver schemes fall apart around the seams
And someone's stepping on your dreams.
Just live.

Then when, as life is bound to do, it all starts going wrong for you,
You'll find the last thing you can do
Is say you did.

Lovers of life, Unite.
Track Name: NoseDive
I could follow you all day.
Like the time we ran round Moricambe Bay.
Don't you know I'll come around?
Every morning, I come around.

I could stay with you all night.
Til we find a way to make you feel alright.#
Don't you know you'll come around?
Every morning, you come around.

So NoseDive.
Don't you know you've got to stay alive to see
What this world can be
Track Name: Over The Hill
So I walk through the door
Point my face to the floor
And I leave. But I don't have a clue.
When I'm over the hill
I'll look back for you still
And I might shed a tear, maybe two
But to climb that hill with you,
It would simply spoil the view

So I stand with my load
Point my thumb to the road
With a sign that says "Don't care where to"
When I'm over the hill
I'll look back for you still
And I might say a prayer, maybe two
But to climb that hill with you,
It would simply spoil the view.
Track Name: Gold
Seventeen years old, with eleven weeks to go
But you're Gold.
But you don't get gold for nothing.

Standing in your rows.
With your faces passport photos.
But you're Gold.
But you don't get gold for nothing.

Cos you were out there on your frontline
While I was hiding from the sunshine
When we were listening to Nevermind

Years of saying no, means you never seemed to grow.
But you're Gold.
But you don't get gold for nothing.

Ninety-Six years old, with eleven more to go.
But you're Gold.
But you don't get gold for nothing.

Cos you were Mummy's little soldier.
But with a face a few years older.
You'll still be waiting for life to unfold.

But you're Gold.
Track Name: My Hypocritical Friend
My Hypocritical Friend stayed with me last night.
She turned up after 10, so she wouldn't have to fight
with a man, she doesn't understand.
She's not part of his plans.
My Hypocritical Friend.

My Hypocritical Friend does this every week.
She turns up at my door, when she's far too drunk to speak.
But I love her, when she rolls up in my covers,
and I don't want another
Hypocritical Friend

"I've had a bottle of wine,
So can we save this for another time?"
Is all she seems to say
"I've had a bottle of gin,
You know I want you but I'm still with him"
That's when I should've walked away.

My Hypocritical Friend stayed with me last night.
We had that talk again, about how I'm always too polite.
But I'm just a man, who doesn't understand
how I'm not part of her plans.
My Hypocritical friend.
Track Name: If We Never Came Down
Sit tight.
Sleep right.
Things we said we could do if we never came down.

The Sun.
The Moon.
All disappearing too soon.
Things we said we could do if we never came down.

Wah Wah Wah Wah.

Born in a storm.
Lightning keeping us warm.
Things we said we could do if we never came down.

Lost in your forest at night,
Waking up and feeling alright.
Things we said we could do if we never came down.


Hey man you've been stuck inside,
With the past and the future passing you by.
There's a storm outside but it's not too late.
You can change the world but the world won't wait for you.
Track Name: Slow Dance
N/A
Track Name: Profiteroles
Today was a tough one, if truth can be told,
Til you came around and knocked my door.
The sight of your skin
Can let us begin the same old show.

Today was a rough one, and I want you to know
That never before have I felt so low.
The sight of you smiling.
I want you to stay before you go.

Darling, can you stay the night?
Cos with you it feels alright when it's cold outside.

Today was a tough one, if truth can be told,
Til you came around here with profiteroles.

Darling, can you stay the night?
Cos with you it feels alright when it's cold outside.
Track Name: Zeus
Today I woke up smiling,
With the warm sun on my face.
I woke up to face an empty house.
And I found you downstairs.
The other day I burst out laughing
For the whole damn world to see.
Oh angel, angel, what you're you doing to me?

I thought a healthy cynicism
would always get me through.
But the world has seemed to changed since then,
And I've got to blame you.
The other day I started smiling
for the whole damn world to see.
Oh angel, angel what're you doing to me?

By the beard of Zeus I do believe this is happening to me
There's probably something up the devil's sleeve
But I'll just wait and see
Track Name: Sane Girls Are Boring
In this city I need to settle down.
In this city I need to go to ground.
But it's good to see you girl, it's been a while.

In this city, I need to find a way.
In this city, I need a place to stay.
But it's good to see you girl, it's been a while.

But sane girls, Sane Girls Are Boring.
After all of this, a gentle kiss seems tame.
Sane girls, Sane Girls Are Boring.
So I'll just make the same mistakes again, again, again...
Track Name: Paintwork
Like a moth to a flame, a hundred miles away
When it moves each day.
Ok. Imagine the surprise
Through half-closed eyes, no-one dies.
It's an idiot's demise.

But you've seen it all
You've got a thousand photos on your wall
But you're killing time
Til they all fall away
And blu-tack stains the paintwork where they lay.
Don't forget, but don't forget today.

So I bring out the old line
I haven't had the time
And cash flow's tight.
Alright.
I'll just sleep until I'm fine.

But you've seen it all
You've got a thousand photos on your wall
But you're killing time
Til they all fall away
And blu-tack stains the paintwork where they lay.
Don't forget, but don't forget today.
Track Name: Song About Amsterdam
Here's a song about Amsterdam,
Here's a song about Rome.
Here's a song about smiling when we wake and aren't at home.
Here's a song about Portugal.
Here's a song about Spain.
Here's a song about dancing in our T-shirts in the rain.

Here's a song about bicycles.
Here's a song about cars.
Here's a song about driving out at night to see the stars.
Here's a song about Amsterdam.
Here's a song of Malmo.
Here's a song about Let's do all this stuff before we go.

Here's a song about Amsterdam.
Here's a song of Carlisle.
Here's a song about getting through your weekdays with a smile.
Here's a song about Amsterdam.
Here's a song of Glasgow.
Here's a song about Let's do all this stuff before we go.


I want to play with matches.
I want to take my chances.
I want to go where you don't go.
Get thrown in at the deep end.
I want to fill my weekends.
I want to know what you don't know.

Here's a song about Amsterdam.
Here's a song of Glasgow.
Here's a song about Let's do all this stuff before we go.
