Track Name: I need you like air
So I guess I never know where to start,
So this time I will try it from the heart.
Nobody really knows just how I feel,
Maybe it's me, maybe not even I'm real.

I'm scared and I'm a little overwhelmed,
at how day's turn into years a little too well.
When I look back over times I should've lived,
To go back to those days, anything I would give.

So hold my hand, and don't be scared,
When I scream and shout, and push you away.
You know I need you, like the air that I breathe,
so keep the days ticking, I'll start today.

I wonder so much what it'd feel like,
To fuck it all up on purpose just for me.
But I guess I'm a coward, 'cause I lose sight,
and I go back to living, living in mediocrity.

So hold my hand, and don't be scared,
When I scream and shout, and push you away.
You know I need you, like the air that I breathe too,
so keep the days ticking, I'll start today.
Track Name: Honest Crimes (Love and Hope feat. Chris Birchall)
I just wanted to say sorry,
for these honest crimes.

And I just wanted to explain,
that I've tried, so many times.

Somewhere down the road I lost my only source of fire,
so I started to borrow more and more from you.

When you became so cold I told you all the lies,
I started to feel more and more blue.

So I put on my favourite smile, and carry through.

I just wanted to say sorry,
for these honest crimes.

I just wanted to explain,
that I'm dying for you.

Remember back when we were young and the world was at our feet?
We didn't have to try to make it new.

Time goes by and that I knew, I suppose it's quite a feat,
that even back then I knew that I'd change for you.

So put on your favourite smile, I'll carry you.
I'l put on my facourite smile, and carry you.
So out on your favourite smile, and push on through
I put on my favourite smile, and push on through.

So I put on my favourite smile and carry you, you know I got you.
So put on your favourite smile and push on through, I got you I got you.
I put on my favourite smile and carry you, carry you.
You know I put on my favourite smile, and go.

I will go, I will go, I will go, I will go for you.
I will go, I will go, I will go, I will go for you.
I will go, I will go, I will go, I will go for you.
I will go, I will go, I will go, I will go for you.

These are honest crimes I swear.
Put on your favourite smile and...
These are honest crimes I....

I'm reeling, and I'm sorry.
For the things that I have to see.

All the blood, and the violence.
Tears shed between human beings.

If you need a hand, then I'm sorry.
I'm not sure there's much I can do.

"Don't worry, about a thing"
How I wish those words were still true.

So if you need hope, come get some.
I got piles of it high for miles.
So if you need love, come show me.
I've got the need and you've got the smile.

So don't worry, about a thing.
'Cause every little thing, is gonna be alright.
Track Name: How to be me
I won't be seen beside myself no more.
'cause it's time that I grew up, that's for sure.

And these days that roll around,
pass by without a sound.

I'm trying to be someone for,
Trying to to be someone
for you to remember,
for you to look back at how young we used to be.

Trying to be someone
for you to remember,
'cause I don't remember how to be me.

I won't be looking in the mirror at me today no.
Instead I'm gunna close my eyes, and sing the night away.

Looking for all of the things that make me,
Maybe I'll find them but I would trust me.

To make anything worthwhile for,
To make anything
for you to remember
for you to look back at how young we used to be.

To make anything
for you to remember
'cause I don't remember who I used to be

And everything I learned was just a soul to burn, a lie to turn.
And all the days I spent, trying to find, the fire inside.
And in the end it came to pieces of you, I took from you too.
Inside your mind, I knew I'd find my day in the limelight.

I won't be seen beside myself no more,
'cause it's time that I grew up, that's for sure.
Track Name: Territorial Pissings (Nirvana Cover)
When I was an alien,
Cultures weren't opinions.

Gotta find a way, a better way, when I'm there.
Gotta find a way, a better way, I'd better wait.

Never met a wise man,
if so it's a woman.

Gotta find a way, a better way, when I'm there.
Gotta find a way, a better way, I'd better wait.

Just because you're paranoid,
don't mean they're not after you.

Gotta find a way, a better way, when I'm there.
Gotta find a way, a better way, I'd better wait.
Track Name: Gone Away (feat. Zoe McCallion & Tim Nicholls)
Crowds are forming, everyone gets in my way.
Head high I stride, words I say.
Confidence I blame you every day.
Maybe I was the one who'd gone away.

Take back the light that we stole from the day.
Moons high, I lie, words I say.
Not sure I should blame you any way.
Maybe I was the one who'd gone away.

Some of the days you wanted me.
Other days you hated me.
Some of the times I needed you but,
most of the times I lied to you.

Top dead centre, I have arrived.
Not sure if I should climb or dive.
Pressure and lust lead the ride.
If only I had you by my side.

Some of the days you wanted me.
Other days you hated me.
Some of the times I needed you but,
most of the times I lied to you.

It goes on, and on, and on, and on you know.
Track Name: Wasting Time (feat. Joseph Leo)
There's a window that sits right in front of me,
It's a window as big as the day.
Through it I watch the cars speedily,
drifting alone in the rain.

In here I am warm and I'm comfortable,
out there it's a whole different world.
Open the door and it's miserable,
close it against the wind's whirl.

I'm just wasting time, I'm just wasting time.

In here I am king of the radio,
listening my life away.
Just wasting time 'til I finally go,
venturing out in the rain.

I'm just wasting time, I'm just wasting time.
Time between times wasting time,
won't you come and waste mine?

I'm just wasting time, I'm just wasting time.

I'm just wasting time, I'm just wasting time.
Time between times wasting time,
won't you come and waste mine?

Won't you come and waste mine?

There's a window that sits right in front of me,
it's a window as big as the day.
Through it I watch the cars speedily,
drifting alone in the rain.
