Track Name: Scars & Tattoos
Scars & Tattoos

the stupid things we keep among the books and the dust, plastic junk and trinkets won't shield my memories from rust. so if you give me something to remind me of you, make it last forever like a scar or tattoo.

then leave my body hanging at the mouth of the thames where the pirates of history were sent to meet their ends. if you give me something to remind me of you, make it last forever like a scar or tattoo
Track Name: Out Of My Misery
Out Of My Misery

i wish we'd left the pricetags on
i could add it all up now you're gone
i'd gladly pay a handsome fee
to put you out of my misery

i've had time to count the cost
to compensate for what i've lost
but it'll take more time than our brief history
to put you out of my misery

the year's first snow kept the streets bright
as i walked deep into the night
but i'll have to walk further than my eyes can see
to put you out of my misery
Track Name: Honest Man
Honest Man

town is full of half-term girls, the boys are on the scene but stick with the herd, the speed of sound and the speed of light slow down to walk us home again tonight.
out of our heads into our hearts, the place our bodies meet and where they part, the speed of light and the speed of sound, they break all the laws when you're in town.
where the hell am i and where on earth are you?
surely not all good things are guilt edged, i'm trying to make an honest man of me and my heart needs a soul not just company to finally make an honest man of me
to finally make an honest man of me
i'm trying to make an honest man of me
come on and make an honest man of me
Track Name: SNAFU
the more i see you
the more confused i am
i have constant thoughts of
why not
you can

and bonnie prince billy
he's singing all the things
that we did last night dear
he knows where we've been

situation normal all fucked up
Track Name: Girls Called Sam
Girls Called Sam

this is not how it's meant to be
having to buy your own jewellery
you were not born to be alone
why won't she talk to me
why won't she phone

thought i'd found someone to kick through the leaves
but now you're gone and they're still on the trees
i miss the smell of your hairspray and makeup
was it really my idea to break up

old weather forecasts caught on video
all those who took their time to tell you no
a million ways to waste your time
how did i lose you when you were never mine

i like cars with foreign plates
i'd like to get in and out at their gates
and i'm a sucker for girls called sam
and if that's your name then i'd like to be your man

there's a kiss captured
Track Name: Ten Songs
Ten Songs

everybody's in silver cars when they used to be red
i've got japanese guitars playing in my head

it sings to me from cassette tape caught in a tree
ten songs by my favourite band
ten fingers holding hands

from the dull paint of the masterpiece
to the gloss of the printed page
there's something lost each time i call your name
the wick buckles with the weight of the flame

come out and grease the streets
Track Name: Hang Your Flag Upside-Down
Hang Your Flag Upside-Down

hang your flag upside-down
turn your cold world around
trade a smile for your frown
hang your flag upside-down

when each breath draws a dart
through your cold blistered heart
make a sign make a sound
hang your flag upside-down

the summer came
the sun shone
the summer's over
the sun's gone
got nothing to show but different coloured skin
and you still feel the same within
Track Name: Please Let My Heart Be Your Friend
Please Let My Heart Be Your Friend

please let my heart be your friend
stay with me for all time
please let my heart be your friend
stay with me
be my valentine
please let my heart be your friend

you are my next of kin
though the french have a word for you
i'll call you my next of kin
though the french have a word for you
you are my next of kin
Track Name: Go Out In The Garden
Go Out In The Garden

go out in the garden
spell her name in grain
kindly beg her pardon
don't come back again

weather came from the west
knocked up on your door
of course you let it in
now it's lying on your floor

i sat a while
where king john's lying down
they say he was a bad king
but he's the only king in town
