Track Name: Love goes away
I don’t believe in a love that goes forever
I don’t believe in a love that comes to stay
Every time I think I get a look at love
Love goes away

I don’t want to lie about love

I want to believe in a love that goes forever
I want to believe in a love that comes to stay
I want to believe, but that don’t make it real now
‘Cause love goes away

I don’t want to lie about love

I’ve seen the things that love can do
I’ve seen it smash a soul in two
I don’t want to lie about it
I don’t want to lie to you
I don’t want to lie about love
It goes away, it’s true

When your love has gone away
It sucks the colour from your day
No, there’s nothing left to say
When your whole world has gone to grey

I used to believe in a love that goes forever
I used to believe in a love that comes to stay
I met a girl and she told me all about it now
That girl’s gone away
Track Name: We're just friends
You’ve given me a memory
I’d like to share with you
You’ve given me a fantasy
I’d like to make it true

It doesn’t take much
To fall in love
Just a nudge
In the right direction
It doesn’t take much
Just a touch
A little warmth
And a little affection

But we’re just friends
And we’re just playing games
And if I step up to the plate to play
Is our friendship going to end
Or is it just going to change?

Because everything changes
And everything ends
But if you’ve got the mind
To lay it on the line
Come on and we will see
Maybe we will be
More than just friends
More than just friends

You’ve given me a mystery
I’d like to solve with you
You’ve given me this misery
I don’t know what to do

It doesn’t take much
To come undone
Just a nudge
In the wrong direction
It doesn’t take much
But love is enough
To keep away the pain
So come on
Give me some attention
Just a little warmth
And a little affection

But we’re just friends
And we’re just playing games
And if I step up to the plate to play
Is our friendship going to end
Or is it just going to change?

Because everything changes
Let’s get it together
Let’s not be strangers
If we can’t be friends forever
No, we can’t be friends forever

But we’re just friends
And friends is all that we
Are ever going to be
Track Name: Shining like the sun
I met you, girl, in an ugly place
But the light that fell across your face
It was shining like the sun
You were shining like the sun

I had a love and it left me cold
I felt the chills running down to my soul
I thought that I was done
Now you’re shining like the sun

I love you, girl, ‘cause you take away
All of the ugliness that fills my day
I’ve never known someone
Who can do the things you’ve done

My whole life seems like a waste of time
Waiting for this moment to arrive
Well, can’t you see
Happiness is just a state of mind
These kinds of things must happen all the time
But not to me
No, not to me

This world of ours is an ugly place
But all I need is to see your face
When the ugliness has won
And I come home feeling numb
And my head just weighs a ton
Oh, you’re shining like the sun
You’re shining like the sun

When I’m lost and overcome
And they’ve got me on the run
‘Cause I’m underneath the gun
Oh, you’re shining like the sun
You’re shining like the sun

We’ve only just begun
But you might just be the one
Oh, you’re shining like the sun
You’re shining like the sun

It doesn’t matter where you are
As long as I’m beside you, girl
I’ll be shining like a star
Track Name: Smile
I’ve never been a winner
But I’m always in the race
You’ve never been a sinner
But I know you like the taste
We’re absolute beginners
But we’ve got no time to waste
Oh, I’ve never been a winner, girl

If you’re looking for a simple man
Who doesn’t really understand his world
I’m looking for a girl
There’s nothing here in my defence
A simple act of consequence, it’s true
I’d give my life for you
Oh, there’s nothing I won’t do
To see you smile

I’ve never been a winner
That’s okay
It’s never going to stop me
I’m always going to play
I’ve never been a winner
But one of these days
I’ll be standing up straight
I’ll be taking first place
I’ll be coming your way
With that smile upon my face

I don’t need a girl to love me sometimes
I don’t need a girl to make me feel bad
I don’t need a girl to mess with my mind
I don’t need these girls, these girls
These girls I’ve had

I just want you, girl, to want me in your life
I’d just love you, girl, to love me, too
I just need you, girl, to know
There’s nothing I won’t do for you
Do for you

If you’re looking for a simple man
Who doesn’t really understand his world
I’m looking for a girl
There’s nothing here in my defence
A simple act of consequence, it’s true
I’ll give my life to you
Oh, there’s nothing I won’t do
To see you smile

You are the music, I am your muse
We stick together
And we’re never gonna lose
We’re never gonna lose

I’ve never been a winner
But that’s the way
You make me feel
When you’re coming my way
Track Name: Never been in love
You've never been in love

You and me, why don’t we say it?
You and me, why don’t we say it, now?
You and me, why don’t we say that this is love?

You and me, why are we trying to deny it?
When in my heart, it’s rocking like a riot?
You and me, why don’t we say that this is love?

But you’ve never been in love
You tell me it’s true
You’ve never let anyone in
To see all of the things
That you do

You and me, why are we trying to hide it?
You know there’s nothing we could ever do to fight it
You and me, why don’t we say that this is love?

You and me, why don’t we show it?
Come on, girl, we’ll let the whole world know it
You and me, why don’t we say that this is love?

But you’ve never been in love
You tell me it’s true
You’ve never let anyone in
To see all of the things
That you do

I know that you’ve been hurt
Your heart’s beaten blue
But if you just let me in
I’ll show you all of the things
That love can do

It’s a hard life
With nothing to hold onto
A hard life
With nowhere else to go
A hard life
With no one there beside you
Oh, you know it’s hard
But it’s the only life you know

‘Cause you’ve never been in love
You tell me it’s true
You’ve never let anyone in
To see all of the things
That you do

I know that you’ve been hurt
Your heart’s beaten blue
But if you just let me in
I’ll show you all of the things
That love can do

Last night, we were in bed
I couldn’t quite hear just what you said
If I didn’t know better, girl,
I could have sworn
That you said love

But you've never been in love
Track Name: You are my beautiful place
You are my beautiful place
Every time I close my eyes, I see your face
My soul survives by your good grace
You are my beautiful place

The two of us together here, face to face
We’ve got a bond between us, hope it never breaks
I always want to stay right here in your embrace
I never want to let you get away
No, I never want to let you get away
Because

You are my beautiful place
Every time I lick my lips, I taste your face
I never want to watch you, girl, go to waste
You are my beautiful place

I want to see the seashells
On your velvet beach
I want to touch the places
That are so hard to reach
I want to feel the breeze
Beneath your silky skies
I want to understand
The mystery in your eyes

You are the sun inside me
You are the light that guides me
And if you ever find me in the dark
You know you’re right here
Shining in my heart

You are my beautiful place
Every time I close my eyes, I see your face
We’ve built a world outside of time and space
You are my beautiful place

I want to see the sun down
In your endless seas
I want to hear your songbirds
When they’re calling me
I want to feel your waves
As they lap against my shore
No hay otra como tú
Mi amor

I am your beautiful place
You come to me when you want to get away
I always want to be the one to help you escape
You are my beautiful place
Track Name: Hearts don't break
Anyone can fall in love
It’s not something so hard to do
But then I start believing
That there’s nothing else I’m needing, girl
But you

Anyone can fall in love
It’s all our hearts know how to do
But just because you can
Don’t make it the right thing to do

The only word I’ve got is love
And it doesn’t seem to be enough
To describe the way I feel inside
When I hold you tight
Is this love..?

Anyone can fall in love
It’s not something so hard to do
But when the changing weather gets us
The storm it wets us
Through and through

Anyone can play these games
There’s no ticket at the door
But when the cheque arrives
You realise
Who’s been keeping score

The only word I’ve got is hurt
But girl I feel so much worse
When you go
And leave me on my own
Oh I’ve got to know
Is this love..?

I know
We only see each other
With our eyes closed
I guess
I guess it’s just the way
That love goes
I hope
We can find a way out
Through these shadows
I s’pose
I suppose we’ll see which way
The wind blows

Anyone can fall in love
It’s all our hearts know how to do
But just because you can
Don’t make it the right thing to do

Anyone can fall in love

Anyone can break a heart
It’s not something so hard to do
But keeping one together
Is not something you’ve ever
Tried to do

But hearts don’t break
They just keep beating
You were living for the moment
Oh, you know it’s so fleeting
And when I woke up
And I caught you
Cheating

Well, it just kept beating
Track Name: Walking away
I gave you all my love
But it just wasn’t enough to make you stay
I told you how I feel
And now there’s nothing left to say
I thought that you were perfect
And you gave me the perfect pain
No, I don’t think it was worth it
Oh, I just don’t deserve the way
You keep on walking away

And you say that you’ll stay
But you just keep walking
Just keep on walking away

I gave you all my money
Oh, and then I watched you walk away
I hope that it was funny
It was one hell of a price to pay
To watch you walking away

And you say that you’ll stay
But you just keep walking
Just keep on walking away

I know it’s going to get
A whole lot better than this
But the way I feel today
There’s nothing left for you to miss
And I’m thinking
Now

What do you see
When you look at me?
What do you say
When you call my name?
What do you see
What do you want me to be?
What are you saying
Why are you playing your games with me?
Laying the blame on me?
I won’t take it
Now

I gave you all my love
But it just wasn’t enough to make you stay
And if you’ve got a minute
I’ve got something I’d like to say
This time I’m walking away

You can go your own way
This time I’m walking
This time I’m walking away

I was looking back at you
You were looking back at me
And we both kept on walking
Just kept on walking
Just keep on walking away
Track Name: Nowhere
This street
This street
Goes nowhere
And nowhere
Is where I want to be

This street
This street
Don’t go there
‘Cause nowhere
Is where it’s taking me

These feet
These feet
Are worn down to the bone
Oh, you know I’m going nowhere, girl
And I’m going there alone

‘Cause everything that I’ve ever done
Everything seems to hurt someone
I never wanted to be the one
To hurt you

This street
This street
It don’t care
‘Cause nowhere
Is a lonely place to be

This street
This street
Is never going home
Oh, you know I’m going nowhere, girl
And I’m going there alone

‘Cause everything that I’ve ever done
Everything seems to hurt someone
I never wanted to be the one
To hurt you

But every time that I look at you
I feel my heart and it breaks in two
I never wanted to make you cry
But I do

I don’t want to go, and you won’t go alone
Can’t you see that you and me
We are never going home

I try to find you, but I’m walking blind
Enlightened only by the darkness in my mind
Our love slowly dies, I watch it unwind
And I realise I’m losing your mind

I’ve never been a winner
Just one of the losers
I’ll leave my life
With a list of excuses

I’ve never been a simple man
I’ve always found a way
To complicate the issue
And misuse my name
First I kiss you
And then I cause you pain

You don’t need me, girl, to love you sometimes
You don’t need me, girl, to make you feel bad
You don’t need me, girl, to mess with your mind
You don’t need me, girl
And girl, you should be glad

You were my beautiful place
Where you were is just an empty space
Track Name: Time was not my enemy
I remember thinking that things were important
I remember thinking that I could change
I thought I knew exactly what I wanted
Then my life got a little bit strange
Then my life got rearranged
Then my life just up and changed

On the other side of the sun
I never knew I needed anyone
What have I begun
On the other side
The other side of the sun

I remember thinking that time was not my enemy
I remember thinking I had something to gain
I thought the world could give me what I wanted
Then my life got rearranged
Then my life got a little bit strange
Now my life just ain’t the same

On the other side of the sun
Loneliness seemed so much fun
What have I done
On the other side
The other side of the sun

On the other side of the earth
I thought I knew what I was worth
Sometimes I feel like none of this is real
But oh, I know it is
And that’s my curse

On the other side of the sun
I never knew I needed anyone
What have I become
Since the other side
The other side of the sun

On a rock
Surrounded by water
On a rock
Surrounded by air
On a rock
Spinning ‘round a fire
I stare out into space
And there’s
Nothing there

And when my day is done
I see my battles, lost and won
Am I the only one
On the other side
The other side of the sun

I remember thinking that things were important
I remember thinking that I could change
Track Name: The end of eternity
You know, I know
I let a good thing go
I watched the red tail-lights
Roll down the road
I wake up and find
The wine that we shared
And I put it to my lips
‘Cause you’re not there

Maybe I will see you at the end of eternity
Maybe we will rise up to the sky
Maybe I will see you at the end of eternity
Or maybe that’s too soon for you and I
These things were never destined to survive

Oh you know, I think I knew
There was no hope for me and you
But I loved you all the same
So I played you like a game
Knowing both of us would lose
Am I the one to blame?

‘Cause now both of us are lost
And I’m counting up the cost
And trying to love again

I just want you to know
I’m proud of you
And everything you do

You know what I said
You know it’s true
You know I’d wait forever, girl
For you

Maybe I will see you at the end of eternity
Maybe we will sink beneath the sea
Maybe I will see you at the end of eternity
Or maybe that’s too soon for you and me
This world it never meant for us to be
