Track Name: AWAKE
Nostalgic sentiment when the rain comes
Livin’ in a daydream now don’t wake me up
Nostalgic sentment before the heartache comes
Livin’ in a daydream now don’t wake me up

Nostalgic sentiment when the wind blows
Livin’ in a daydream now don’t wake me up
Nostalgic sentiment when the sun shines
Livin’ in a daydream now don’t wake me up

Haze of daydreams

Sun comin’ out make it rain, make it rain

Suddenly I am alive again
Track Name: THROWN OUT THE WINDOW
Sugar’s sweet
Like honey
Melts like ice in hell
So hot
She’s the chilli queen
She’s spicy not subtle
But somehow the bitch slipped under my radar

It’s all been thrown out the window
And he doesn’t seem to care
It’s all been thrown out the window
And I’ve been stranded here

Me the woman
Not the other
Not the one
Just the rug you tread upon
Like tiles
So sterile and shiny
But not near shiny enough
To look brand new like a hot, hot car ride

And why don’t you take a ride
Why don’t you, you, you take a ride
And why don’t you take a ride
You already have without me
Track Name: BLACK HOLES
Black holes
Recurrin’ shadows
As I lay awake at night

It’s keepin’ my eyes open
It’s keepin’ me from sleep
The shadows are all around
And they’re draggin’
At my feet

‘Til I fall down
Fall down so low
Fall down so low
I can’t fall any lower

It’s takin’ it’s toll
All these years passed in a day
Twenty daggers at once and forever
But I can never ever ever ever

Black holes
Track Name: TUMBLEWEEDS
Some they call him god
Some call him hot stuff
She went out with her head held high and mighty
God almighty she’s left us

Tumbleweeds in your soul
When you think you’re nobody
Turn their backs away
Heads bowed down to hide the tears
I’ve got no stories left
They died along with you

It’s cold in here
She’s been refused
Discussion for the season
Set her temper on fire

The light is magnetic
This tunnel vision
The walls are closin’ in around her
Let her mind stagnate don’t let her breath

I’ve got no stories left
They died along with you
She died alone
She died alone with

Tumbleweeds in her soul
Now she knows she’s nobody
Tumbleweeds in her soul
Tumbleweeds in her soul
Some they call him god almighty
Track Name: WASTED IN VAIN
Well I called you
You never called me back
What’s a girl like me supposed to do

When we’re kissin’ in the carpark
Dancin’ in the rain
I think all my lovin’ has been wasted in vain

Should I wait here for you
I know you’ll never wait for me
No more

Well my baby don’t love me no more
No my baby don’t call me no more
No my baby won’t kiss me no more
He never told me baby I love you
Track Name: ONE FOR THE COMPUTER NERDS
Ah
Uh-huh

I escape my troubles
Me and a cup of tea
Wonderin’ what it is
Those strange boys see in me

They-a peculiah breed
I never give them a-time of day
Always say, say they missin’ me
Any time I say I’m goin’ away
And I say

Yo mo fo’s ye jist don’t git it
Why’d ya think I wanna
G-g-g-give it to ya
Yo boys won’t ya leave me alone
It’s cause-a you I’m always runnin’
From the telephone

You don’t know me
Why won’t ye leave me the hell alone

I don’t go ‘round a-sayin’
Boy I’m too busy to talk to you
And a-I don’t think I
Should, should be
As important as I am to you

Ah
Uh-huh
It’s one for the computer nerds
Ooh those strange boys

And they-a peculiah breed
Wanna g-g-git their hands on my diary
Won’t somebody tell me please
What it is those boys see in me
Track Name: YOU DON'T WANNA KNOW
I wanted to give you the world
Everything good for free
I cry myself to sleep at night
I wake up on the floor

I let you walk away every night
After we say goodbye
Even though I’m breathing
Doesn’t mean, oh no
There’s only air inside

I would never hurt you
But now you’ll never know

I know I’m not pretty outside or inside
But I still hurt when you say goodbye
That’s not good enough for you
You need something false I hate
I won’t change myself for you
