Track Name: Blackhearted
BLACKHEARTED (GIN DRINKING & BLUE)

WHEN YOU KNOW THAT THERE’S NOTHING LEFT TO DO
WHEN YOUR DAYS ARE NUMBERED
AND IT’S ALL ON YOU
AND YOU KNOW THAT IT’S TIME TO LEAVE THIS TOWN
I’VE BEEN WAITING SO LONG FOR YOU TO GET DOWN
SO I WON’T HOLD ON TO NOTHING
I CAN’T HOLD ON TO YOU
WELL I HEARD THERE WAS SOMETHING YOU HAD TO DO
OR DID THE NIGHT AND THE FIRE BURN IN YOU
OR DID YOU KNOW IT WAS TIME TO LEAVE THIS TOWN
OR WERE YOU JUST TOO SCARED TO SAY
WE WERE GETTING YOU DOWN
AND I’LL SCREAM DOWN THE PHONE
WHEN I’M GETTING FUCKED UP ALONE
IT’S NOT ABOUT YOU CAUSE IM THE ONE LEFT
BLACKHEARTED GIN DRINKING AND BLUE
WELL YOU MOTHER DIDN’T LIKE IT
WELL THAT’S QUITE ALRIGHT
IT’S NOT LIKE YOU JUMPED OUT THE WINDOW
IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT
ITS WAS JUST SO EASY WHEN YOU LEFT ME ALONE
IT RATTLES IN MY HEAD
WHEN I HEARD YOU ON THE PHONE
YEAH IT’S ALRIGHT……FOR YOU
IF I’D STAYED I MAY NEVER LEAVE
IF I’D STAYED…DARLING PLEASE
Track Name: New York City
NEW YORK CITY

IF YOU WANT ME HERE I AM
AND IF YOU NEED ME I’LL ALWAYS BE AROUND
BUT IF YOU DON’T WANT ME I UNDERSTAND
I NEVER SAID IT WOULD BE EASY
LIVING WITH A ROCKNROLLIN MAN
SO IF YOU LOVE ME MAKE A STAND
BUT CHANGE IS A FOUR LETTER WORD
THAT I JUST DON’T UNDERSTAND
I SOLD EVERYTHING THAT I OWNED
EXCEPT THIS GUITAR IN MY HAND
BEEN SAVING ALL MY MONEY DARLING
FOR A TICKET ON A BIG JET AEROPLANE
AND IM GOING
NEW YORK OPEN YOUR ARMS
NEW YORK WELL YOU’RE THE ONE
TAKE ME OR I’M DONE
NEW YORK CITY HERE WE COME
ALL I EVER NEEDED
WAS TO BE THE SINGER IN THIS ROCK N ROLL BAND
DON’T YOU KNOW IT’S BEEN TOO LONG
YEAH I KNOW IT’S ALL FOR A SONG
I HOPE YOU KNOW I WON’T BE GONE TOO LONG
YEAH YEAH I KNOW…..IT’S JUST A SONG
Track Name: The Big One
THE BIG ONE

SHE SLIPS OFF HER ARMOUR
CRAWLS INTO BED
SHE DOESN’T NEED IT ANYMORE
SHE PULLS THE BLANKETS OVER HER HEAD
THE MORNING BRINGS FEELINGS OF HOPE
AND SHE’LL HOLD ON
BUT UNTIL THEN
SHE’S ARMOUR UP
SHE WAKES UP
SHE PUTS ON HER MAKE UP
CAUSE SHE DON’T WANT NO
SECOND HAND LOVE SONG
SHE’S WAITING ON THE BIG ONE
FACING A BRAND NEW DAY
WALKS OUT THE DOOR
HER HEART BEATS LIKE A DRUM
ALL THE OPPORTUNITIES
THE PEOPLE, THE CITY THE HOT SUN
CAUSE HER FEET DON’T TOUCH THE GROUND
SHE CAN’T SEE THAT ALL THE BOYS KEEP
CHASING HER AROUND
YOU NEVER KNOW
WHAT’S AROUND EVERY CORNER
YOU DON’T KNOW
WHAT COULD BE WAITING FOR YOU
DON’T BE SCARED TO FALL
DON’T SELL YOURSELF SHORT
CAUSE YOU DESERVE IT ALL
SHE HOLDS HER HEAD HIGH
WITH HER LAUGH AND HER BIG BEAUTIFUL SMILE
ALL I CAN SAY IS HOLD ON
NATALIE, I HOPE YOU LIKE YOUR LOVE SONG?
Track Name: Antique Store Girl
ANTIQUE STORE GIRL

SHE LIVES ABOVE AN ANTIQUE STORE
WHERE THE SOUNDS OF THE 20’S FLOAT
UP THROUGH THE FLOOR
WELL SHE TELLS ME NOT TO SMOKE SO MUCH
BUT ACTS LIKE SHE COULDN’T REALLY CARE
THEN SHE KISSES ME WHILE SHE THINKS I’M ASLEEP
AND MAKES ME WASH MY HAIR
OH ITS THE WAY THAT SHE’S GOT NOTHING TO PROVE
AND ITS THE WAY THAT SHE MESSES UP MY ROOM
SHE SMILES AT ME WHEN SHE THINKS IM NOT LOOKING
THEN SHE LIES TO ME AND TELLS ME THAT
SHE LIKES MY COOKING
AND I WANT HER TO KNOW
THAT SHE’LL NEVER BE ALONE
SO CMON DARLIN PLEASE TAKE ME HOME
SHE PICKS UP SCRAP PAPER OFF THE FLOOR
AND MAKES PAPER CRANES
AND LEAVES THEM ON MY DASHBOARD
AND HER DAD SMOKES POT
AND HER MUM DRINKS A LOT OF WINE AND WHISKY
AND WHEN SHE’S HOLDING ME CLOSE AND SMILING AT ME
IM EXACTLY WHERE I WANT TO BE
C'MON DARLIN TAKE ME HOME
Track Name: England Skies
ENGLAND SKIES

DEPARTURE LOUNGE BLUES
AND ALL I DID WAS CRY AT YOU
I TOOK OFF MY SHOES
IF I WAS IN ARRIVALS I'D HAVE LESS TO LOSE
NO CASH TO BUY FLOWERS FOR YOU
SO SORRY FOR MYSELF I DIDN’T SEE YOU SLIP AWAY
AS I CHECKED-IN MY BAGS
THE LAST OF YOU THAT I SAW WAS YOUR BACK
AS YOU WALKED THROUGH THE GLASS SLIDING DOORS
TO THOSE ENGLAND SKIES I HATE TO SEE YOU GO
AND YOUR GYPSY LIFE THAT I WAS DENIED
WELL I SUPPOSE IN MANY WAYS
SUPPOSE MY GREATEST SOURCE OF SHAME
WAS THAT NIGHT IN THE SNOW
WHEN I WAS SURE MY TIME WAS THROUGH
OR AT LEAST SURELY LOSE MY TOES
IN BARE FEET AND COTTON CLOTHES
IN MY MOMENT OF MADNESS
WEAKNESS AND DESPERATION
TO SAVE MYSELF I RAN FOR SHELTER
BUT I RAN RIGHT-ON-BY YOU
AND I LEFT YOU THERE
YOU WERE OKAY, BUT NOW I SEE
THAT I LEFT YOU THERE
JUST LIKE YOU DID RIGHT BACK
WHEN THEY DEPORTED ME
I HATE TO SEE YOU GO
BUT I LOVE TO WATCH YOU LEAVE
IF WE WERE JUST SHIT TOGETHER
THEN HOW COME YOUR LACK OF LAST WORDS
LEAVES ME BLEEDING AND NEEDING CLOSURE?
YOU WERE OKAY IN THE END
AND THEY TELL THAT IM GOING TO BE
SO ITS GOODBYE TO THOSE ENGLAND SKIES
Track Name: Tonight
TONIGHT

TEAR UP YOUR CLOTHES
AND SEND A PIECE TO ME
CALL MY NAME
WRITE ME LETTERS
THAT I’LL NEVER READ
JUST DON’T SAY GOODBYE
WHEN YOU LEAVE
I COULD TEAR OUT MY HEART
AND GIVE IT TO YOU
WOULD IT CHANGE A THING
NEVER DOES NEVER WILL
NOTHING EVER CHANGES
IT’S JUST DIFFERENT FACES
IN THE NIGHT
IM DROWNING IN BLUES
IT’S ALL PILLS AND BOOZE
TONIGHT
I GOT NOTHING TO LOSE
IT’S ALL OVER THE NEWS
THAT YOURE NOT COMING HOME
BUT DARLIN WOULD IT BE ALRIGHT
IF I LEAVE THE LIGHT ON FOR YOU
TONIGHT
ONE LAST THING BEFORE YOU GO
I’LL NEVER CHANGE
I’LL ALWAYS BE ON MY WAY
TO A SHOW
WELL I KNOW WHAT YOU WANT
AND I TRY AND I TRY JUST TO BE
FOR YOU
I TAKE THE REDS AND THE BLUES
Track Name: Fuck You - I miss You
FUCK YOU, I MISS YOU

WHERE WERE YOU WHEN IT ALL WENT DOWN
TYPICAL YOURE NOWHERE TO BE FOUND
YOU SOLD ME DOWN THE RIVER ONCE AGAIN
YOU FLEW OUT TO SOME FOREIGN PLACE
I SPENT THE SUMMER WITH CAM
GETTING SO OFF MY FACE GIRL YES I DID
YOU SOLD ME DOWN THE RIVER ONCE AGAIN
SO I FELL DOWN TO THE GROUND
BUT THE BEER NEVER LEFT MY HAND
YOU SOLD ME DOWN THAT RIVER ONCE AGAIN
WELL I MISSED YOUR SMILE
AND I MISSED YOUR GRACE
BUT NOT THE GOODBYE LOOK ON YOUR FACE
YOU SOLD ME DOWN THE RIVER
WAY BACK THEN
ARE YOU ON A PLANE
ARE YOU ON A TRAIN
WILL WE EVER BE THE SAME GIRL
YOU SOLD ME DOWN THE RIVER ONCE AGAIN
Track Name: All The Good Girls
ALL THE GOOD GIRLS

ITS GETTING LATE
THE GRASS TIPS ARE FROZEN
THE BARS ARE ALL CLOSING
THE COUPLES LONG GONE
ALL THE GOOD GIRLS BEEN CHOSEN
THE BAD GIRLS BREAK THEIR OWN HEARTS
IN THE NIGHT
LONE RANGERS LEFT TO PICK FIGHTS
IM FEELING AS FADED
AS MY DIRTY BLUE JEANS
AND MY SHIRT
JUST AS CREASED AS MY HEAD
I DONT WANT TO TALK ABOUT
OUR PERSONAL PROBLEMS
LETS GO AND GET
SHITFACED INSTEAD
IM OFF MY FACE
DOGS TAKING OVER THE STREET OUTSIDE
AND IM TOO DRUNK TO STAND
SO I WATCH FROM THE GUTTER
AS HOPE ROLLS AWAY DOWN THE EMPTY ROAD
A BOTTLE OF WINE IN MY HAND
OH YEAH
UHUH
Track Name: Broken English Baby
BROKEN ENGLISH BABY

BECAUSE OF YOU I BELIEVE IT AGAIN
AND I KNOW
THAT THE BIG WHEEL STILL TURNS
FOREVER TURNS
SO THANKYOU
FOR NOT LETTING THIS BE THE END
CAUSE IT FEELS SO GOOD TO BURN
FOREVER BURN
AND WE TALKED
ABOUT AN APARTMENT IN FRANCE
AND IN YOUR BROKEN ENGLISH BABY
YOU SAID PLEASE TAKE A CHANCE
I PLAYED LEONARD COHEN
YOU KISSED ME SO SWEET
AND YOU SANG BABY PLEASE DON’T GO
SO I KEEP YOU BEHIND MY EYES
CAUSE 48HRS WAS SO GOOD FOR ME
WAS SO GOOD FOR YOU
YOU CRAWLED ACROSS THE FLOOR
YOU LOOKED UP AT ME
YOU APOLOGISED FOR YOUR ENGLISH
BUT IT SOUNDED SO GOOD TO ME
YOU PLAYED THE LEFT HAND
I PLAYED THE RIGHT
AND YOU SANG
TOO HOT DAYS AND TOO HOT NIGHTS
WE DRANK AWAY THE SUMMER
EVERYTHING’S ALRIGHT
