Track Name: Keeping Up
I’m keeping up and staying fashionable
I’m keeping up with what they have next door
I’m keeping up with gossip magazines
It’s so worth it
I’m keeping up with the Kardashians
I’m keeping up with all my mortgage plans
I’m keeping up with all the TV soaps
Did you see?...
I’m keeping up to be in front of you
I’m keeping up with all thats in the news
I’m keeping up with all the latest toys
You must have

I will be me – you will be you
I’ll stay ahead of all you do
This is my plan –I’ll be ahead
Til all this stuff just fills my head
I will be loved – you’ll be in awe
I will be high above the floor
People will say –this guy is great
I wanna be like him today




I’m keeping up with all the soccer scores
I’m keeping up with all the big transfers
I’m keeping up with my appearances
Dont fail them
I’m keeping up to date with trivia
I’m keeping up to be so popular
I’m keeping up so I don’t fall down
Social scales
Track Name: Loving You Forever
LOVING YOU FOREVER

I used to think its perfect sense
There was no sitting on the fence
And truth or lies were clearly black or white
But every night I have to pray
I realise it’s not that way
The truth is sometimes very hard to take

I can’t let go – I need you now
I’m loving you (I’m loving you) forever
I’m fallible but stronger now
I’m loving you (I’m loving you) forever

I’m scared of what I could become
It’s not like me I’m not that one
Denial seems an easy place to be
So change the future – shake the past
Let the ghosts inside me laugh
All that was is now what cannot be

I’ve made mistakes along the way
But they won’t stop me loving you forever
Track Name: My Space
My Space

I don’t want any company
I don’t want anybody surrounding me
Im tired of stupid games you’ve played
I’ve had enough of everything you said

I don’t want anything from you
I don’t need any reason why I should do
You’re just a person standing there
Someone right now I really have no care for

This is my space so please get out
I don’t need you in here to tell me what you think about that
This is the place I need to be
A million miles away from anyone or anything

I don’t want sympathy
I don’t want you to spare a thought for me here
I really couldn’t give a damn
To what you really think of me or who I really am

This is my space so please get out
I don’t need you in here to tell me what you think about that
This is the place I need to be
A million miles away from anyone or anything
This is my space so let me be
Turn round and walk away don’t spare another thought for me
I need some time to work it out
Some peace and quiet from all the things that we have talked about
Track Name: Love in Dead Places
LOVE IN DEAD PLACES
I’m underneath an Autumn moon
Looking at the stars
Talking here beside you
Time flies
You listen so intently
Never pouring scorn
On anything I have to say
You’re special
I can tell you anything
You will understand
No-one listens like you
...No-one could

Love in Dead Places

I’m shattered by your silence
I’m humbled by your calm
Never thought I feel this
Some day
Silently you’re waiting
To recognise the fear
That nothing lasts forever
Nothing can.... 06.05.12
Track Name: Moving On From Here
Instrumental (apart from a sample loop of me singing "Moving On" lol)
Track Name: You Say Yes I Say No
I have my feelings on certain things in life
You have your issues and you can’t sync in with mine
We sail together into future trials of life
Loving each other but testing all the time
Who’s first to give in is it me or is it you
Who will show weakness and give up what they do?

You say yes, and I say no
What’s the rush in coming to blows
I say yes and you say no
What’s the point we live in parallels?
You say yes and I say no
In years to come we’ll smile and laugh aloud
I say yes and you say no
Here and now there’s just nowhere to go

Take off and run now and you know you’ll lose your stance
Be strong and stand still and show them who’s gonna dance
Watching and waiting for the sound of stamping feet
Control is broken and the argument begins
Track Name: All About Us
When it all comes down to us it’s all perception
Do we really control everything we do at all?
In the finer moments we seem so attracted
But in the darker times it’s hard to find our souls....

Slowly now – look at us
Spiralling imagining – we’re joining to our hearts
Now It’s all about us – and the way we relate
Now its time to be honest with our points of view
And give our lives a break

It’s not about me
And it’s not about you
It’s all about the way that we manipulate each other’s point of view

Would you really think of me the same way with my guard down
Could you really hold on to my heart the way you do?

Fall in love – rise above
Conditioning – your being – and never fall apart
Now it’s all about us
And the way we relate
This is not about the sacrifice of human kind
Or ideology

It’s not about me
And it’s not about you
It’s all about the way that we manipulate each other’s point of view
It’s not about you
And its not about me
Its all about the lessons learned, the feelings burned
And build on what we see

The answers lie inside of me
Being brave and digging deep
Lessons repeat til they’re learned
No place better being here to change
Track Name: Forgive You
FORGIVE YOU
We all have ghosts and things that choke
The life out of our cause
We live in lies in paradise
And hide behind the truth
I will forgive you – I will forgive you
But don’t except a second chance – I’m through with taking more
I will forgive you – Yeah I’ll forgive you
But get up from your bended knee and leave me well alone

Never could say exactly what went on
I feel for you – the shame on you
Better you leave and work at what was wrong
And do some good for someone else

You never meant to be so cruel
It’s just the way it was
I can’t sit here and judge mistakes
When I’m no perfect saint
I will forgive you – I will forgive you
But there’s no chance of anything being quite the same again
I will forgive you – Yeah I’ll forgive you
I wish I had the upper hand to proudly walk away

Pain – sinking in slowly now
I loved you – you loved me – it was simple
Want to be there – rewind it – go find it – return
Track Name: Safe Hands
SAFE HANDS
Here behind the backdrops of everything you do
Watching oh so proudly the life that you’ve pulled through
You’re taking off and leaving me in no doubt
Despite the problems we’ve pulled though and I’m proud
A pair of safe hands round you
Surrounding all the work you do
Oh thats my boy

Rising from the shadows and proving you are you
Making your decisions with one that I approve
I’m looking and I’m listening in no doubt
That you are carrying on the great big shout
You’ve got it running through your veins
I miss the chance to do the same now
Oh - thats my boy
Oh – thats my boy

INSTRUMENTAL

Choosing the directions following the stars
Sailing round the world again contact from afar
I’m looking and I’m listening in no doubt
Of everything I feel for you – I’m proud
A pair of safe hands round you
Surrounding all the work you do
Oh thats my boy
