Track Name: Strangers
OK so let's be strangers again,
Lets pretend we were never friends,
I'll make it easy to pretend,
I'll never look in your eyes again.

The streetlights will only shine on the right side,
You'll walk on the left for the rest of your stupid useless life.

You said "there's two things you'll never know,
Where I am and where I'll go",
So you take the high road and I'll take the low,
I'll take the low.

OK so let's be strangers again,
Solo our hearts could mend
I could even fall in love again,
If I had any love left to spend.

You said "there's two things you'll never know,
Where I am and where I'll go",
So you take the high road and I'll take the low,
I'll take the low.

OK so let's be strangers again,
Lets pretend we were never friends,
I'll make it easy to pretend,
I'll never look in your eyes again.
Track Name: Not While She's Around
You aren't the glue that holds me together,
You aren't the love of my life,
You aren't what gets me through each day,
You don't make everything alright.

I don't smile when I think about you,
I wont let myself fall again,
You don't even know what you put me through,
Or maybe you do,
But which is worse?

You aren't the one that changed my whole life,
I can breathe fine without you,
Your songs don't bring a tear to my eye,
In fact they make me bored of you.

And if you insist on pushing me down,
I'll be damned if I don't pull you too,
And if this is what we have become,
Then why stop here?

You said the wrong thing at the right time,
Just the push I needed,
I'll sleep soundly alone tonight,
As the sun buries his head,
As the sun goes to his bed.

My batteries don't run out without you,
My feet don't stay firmly on the ground,
My bed isn't too big and empty,
Nothing can keep me down,
Not while she's around.

At least you can't rip me apart,
I'm already torn to shreads,
I'll never look back again,
I'll forgive but I wont forget,
I'll forgive but I can't forget.
Track Name: For Just One Minute There...
I really messed it up this time,
It's only now that you realise,
I'm not who you thought I was.

Handled with no tact or grace,
Now clumsy me sits out of place,
I fall over myself to win
Do you think I'll ever give in

I really messed it up this time,
I've been thrust into the limelight,
For all the wrong reasons.

For the sake of everyone around,
I'll dig a hole in the ground,
Then climb in sheepishly,
Would you every expect any more of me?

For just one minute there,
I thought I could win you fair and square forever,
After everything is said and done,
I'm still not the only one who covets you.

I really messed it up this time,
I thought it was justified,
But you proved me wrong again,
When this storm calms you'll find me,
Hidden beneath the tree,
With our names carved in it.
Have you ever heard anything so pathetic?

For just one minute there,
I thought I could win you fair and square forever,
After everything is said and done,
I'm still not the only one who covets you.
Track Name: Goodbyes
I wish I could fold up and fit in an envelope,
And post myself to wherever you are,
You'd open it up with a frown and fear of debt collectors words,
But I'd pop out and smile.

And you'd laugh and say "Oh, what a nice surprise",
And there'd be no more goodbyes.

When my day is stale I'll do my best to brighten up the skies,
The watch the moon reflect off your blue eyes,
I'd say "Don't drown yourself over a sore heart nor battle with the waves there are many who have died at sea".

And you'd look up and say "My God you are right",
And there'd be no more goodbyes.

I've got my bicycle let's just make a clean escape,
Let's pedal as fast as we can,
By this time tomorrow we could be far far away,
Let's never look back again.

And we'd dance by the light of the moon,
We'd dance by the light of the moon.

You'd look at me and say "what a perfect night",
And there'd be no more goodbyes.
Track Name: Holes In My Sails (Bonus Track)
Wait for my sign and then just run,
Everything will become clear,
The sun only shines south of here,
Don't wait behind for anyone,
Forget the photographs,
I officially give up.

I mended the holes in my sails come on let's go,
The Moon is low,
Lighten the load,
Leave your woe here,
And we will disappear into the dawn.

I'm not the best thing you've ever owned,
Nor the best thing available,
But I've got a fool-proof escape plan,
And I'll get us both out of here.

I mended the holes in my sails come on let's go,
The Moon is low,
Lighten the load,
Leave your woe here,
And we will disappear into the dawn.

These vultures fly above my head,
Wherever I go they want me dead,
But I can't lay down and just wait,
I'll run instead.

I mended the holes in my sails come on let's go,
The Moon is low,
Lighten the load,
Leave your woe here,
And we will disappear into the dawn.
