Track Name: Stay
Holding my breath I count to ten
I see your face before me and then
That glint in your eye blows me away
We both should know that I just can’t stay

You move in close, you touch my skin
My stomach flips my head starts to spin
I gasp for air, some breathing space
Fall in to the abyss of your embrace

(Chorus)
Stay quiet, stay still, stay here with me
Just who is to say, what should be?
Forget tomorrow, just think of now
I know that we’ll get through this somehow


I stare in to those wistful eyes
The sweet innocence in them belies
The longing that should never be
The longing that brought you here with me


Forget what they say, forget what’s right
Be anyone you want tonight
Track Name: In a World Where You're Not There
It’s dark outside, the cold wind bites
Yet somewhere in my heart remains a flickering light
You’d never understand, maybe it’s better that way
To live in endless nights, kept far away from day

It all began, so many years ago
Perhaps I could have changed things, but who was I to know
The seed was set, that was only the start
It’d only begin to grow after so many years apart

(Chorus)
I never want to wake in a world when you’re not there
I wish that I could tell you just how much I care
I would do anything, to make your world seem right
If only I could hold you tonight.


We sit, we talk, exchange a fleeting glance
Does it ever cross your mind that this could lead to a romance?
A darker world than mine, if you’d only let me in
I could care for your wounds, let the healing begin

I wish that I could read the thoughts inside your head
But all I see is uncertainty and darkness instead
If I don’t have you, then I have nothing left
A life not worth living, empty, bereft.

Could you ever find a place for me inside your heart?
I’d never let you down, I’d never tear us apart
I know that this could be a lot to ask
But just don’t let your future be as bleak as your past.
Track Name: Need to See You
I keep on walking the same old road
It feels as though I might explode
Slides from hot to freezing cold
Another chapter left untold

(Chorus)
I need to see you
I need to tell you
I need to break through
I need to set me free


I’m above the clouds and flying high
Then I fall I crash, I hurt, I cry
Mixed emotions go racing by
I wish this love would just fade and die


I said I’d see this through to the end
But it needs to stop, I can’t pretend
We could have been more than just friends
Love is something you don’t comprehend.
Track Name: Will You
From the moment that we met
I knew you were the one
Your smile lit up my world
You shone brighter than the sun

As you held me in your arms
Everything made sense
Never before had I believed
In a love so intense

(Chorus)
Will you be there?
Will you stay?
Will you hold me close, never let love slip away?
Will you always care?
Will you be true?
Will you shine down on me when the world seems blue?
Will you?

I promise to be there for you
As you laugh and as you cry
Never will I betray you
Never will I say goodbye

I will cherish every moment
That I spend with you
I’ll always be by your side
In everything you do

We can overcome anything
Our story’s ours to write
Dance through all our summer days
Hold on through the darkest nights
Track Name: My Number 35
Life can be humdrum it can be a bore, choose to fit in or choose to ignore
Try to escape or decide to stay, catch the next bus to get away
I stand at the shelter reading through the stops, do I go the long haul or just a short hop?
So much to think and time’s running out, I have to move fast, without a doubt

(Chorus)
Driving down the road on a sunny day, I paid the fare that I had to pay
Thinking ‘bout all those games you play
You were just my, just my, you were just my number thirty five.


The route isn’t easy it’s got twists and turns, did I buy a single or an open return?
Choose where to sit, choose where to alight, fly through the darkness, deep in to the night
Coventry, Chester, Cardiff or Crewe, trying to get far away from you
A passenger on a bumpy ride, I’ll get a different service next time

The first stage done and I feel alive, change this vehicle that I ride
I take the wheel now it’s me who drives, you were just my, just my, just my thirty five
Track Name: This Could Never Be
I wake up with a start as I peer through the dark
There’s a pain in my heart that could’ve only been left by you
Is it truth is it lies is this really goodbye?
Is that pain in your eyes for me, or is it for you?

(Chorus)
This could never be
But you’re too blind to see
You act so selfishly, you’ll never change
We can’t work this out
Of this I have no doubt
Don’t know what you’re about
I’ve walked away
I’ve walked away

I drift off to the past , did I think we would last
It all happened so fast, now you’re a ghost that haunts my heart
Did you say what you meant, was it all just pretence?
Will you ever relent, will you change and set me free?
Track Name: Betrayed
The fading light
Leads to the dead of night
I pull your body close to mine

I feel your touch
Want you so much
There’s nothing left for me to hide

(chorus)
I just want to be with you tonight
Can you ease this pain inside?
Kiss my lips in the pouring rain
I stare in to your eyes as you call my name
Don’t look back that was yesterday
Tell me whose love is it that you betray?

You hold my hand
We drift to, far off lands
Don’t make me wait another day
So stay with me
Feel the intensity
Say you’ll never walk away.
Track Name: Can't Go Back to Yesterday
Sat here on the floor, bricks falling ‘round me from the wall
Watching this temple I’d built crumble away
You came in to my life, now pain cuts through me like a knife
Never thought these feelings would come back again

(Pre Chorus)
The words that should’ve never been spoken, the girl who belonged in the past
The dreams that were shattered and broken, the love that would be unsurpassed

(Chorus)

Now we can’t go back to yesterday, or find the words we need to say
To make things right, we’ll never make it right
In my dreams I’d spend my life with you
Now the wall’s too high and I can’t break through
It’s time to face my life without you here.

I down another drink, as my heart begins to sink,
You took my love and poured it all away
I wait for you to call, but I can’t do this anymore
I’m damaged, battered, broken and left for dead.
Track Name: Haven't a Clue
Here we are, two lost souls, staring at the sun
Mere shadows of our former selves, what have we become?
But the birds still sing, the stars still shine, a smile still cracks from time to time
The music plays and life goes on, we’re letting go of all that’s gone

(Chorus)
Together we’ll move on, fight to keep our dreams
Rediscover who we were before, re-kindle teenage schemes
Walk away, take it back, right back to the start
It’s all part of the process, to heal a broken heart

Endless nights, rainy days, black clouds in the sky
Brighter days will surely come, leave behind the question why
Tomorrow will be a new blank page, with no more fighting, no more rage
The crushing weight lifts from our souls, we’ve slipped from the reach of their control
Track Name: Come Back
Your T-shirt’s in the wardrobe, it still smells of you
The scent it takes me back, I can’t believe we’re through
Do you think of me each day?
Do you wish we could go back to yesterday?

(Chorus)
Come back, come back, come back, come back to me
Come back, come back, come back, please come back to me.


The way we used to laugh, that smile upon your face
But now I hear you saying, this is not the time or place
Do you dream of me at night?
Do you wish that I was there to hold you tight?


Driving through the country, Ice-cream by the sea
A thousand pictures showing, Just how perfect life could be.
Waiting in the darkness, for you to call my name
Will I ever love again? Will anything, ever be the same?


Come back
Why don’t you come back to me?
Come back
What will it take to make you see?
Come back
You and I were meant to be
Come back to me

Come back
You lied to me right from the start
Come back
Then you went and crushed my heart
Come back
You blew my whole world apart
Please come back to me

Come back
I should’ve never let you in
Come back
So tell me where do I begin?
Come back
I’ll prove that you will never win
Come back to me

Come back
It’s not that I’m keeping score
Come back
It was you who started this war
Come back
So I can show you to the door
Please come back to me.
Track Name: Invincible
I know you said you’d always love me
But it seems so long ago
I know you said you’d always talk to me
But I guess that wasn’t so

I thought we’d stay forever
As two, invincible

(Chorus)
Now you’re gone and I’m holding on to this hope
I can’t let go
Was it just a dream this thing with you and me?
Hold on, hold on, to my love.

The nights draw in and words escape me
As emptiness consumes
Bright colours fading all around me
Leaving grey rain soaked hues

Your memory will stay with me forever
My love’s invincible

‘Cos I can’t be without you by my side
But it takes things more than one to make things right
Track Name: In a World Where You're Not There (Barney Mad Dog Mix)
It’s dark outside, the cold wind bites
Yet somewhere in my heart remains a flickering light
You’d never understand, maybe it’s better that way
To live in endless nights, kept far away from day

It all began, so many years ago
Perhaps I could have changed things, but who was I to know
The seed was set, that was only the start
It’d only begin to grow after so many years apart

(Chorus)
I never want to wake in a world when you’re not there
I wish that I could tell you just how much I care
I would do anything, to make your world seem right
If only I could hold you tonight.


We sit, we talk, exchange a fleeting glance
Does it ever cross your mind that this could lead to a romance?
A darker world than mine, if you’d only let me in
I could care for your wounds, let the healing begin

I wish that I could read the thoughts inside your head
But all I see is uncertainty and darkness instead
If I don’t have you, then I have nothing left
A life not worth living, empty, bereft.

Could you ever find a place for me inside your heart?
I’d never let you down, I’d never tear us apart
I know that this could be a lot to ask
But just don’t let your future be as bleak as your past.
