Track Name: In The City
Verse 1
I don't wanna live in the city
but I think I might move all the same
all my friends tell me I'm pretty
“that's not really relevant”

I'm contemplating the best

Chorus 1
ways
to get home
take the train or the bus they tell me
train, tram or bus in case it rains
hope it don't rain

Verse 2
The traffic's shit-house in the city
and all the drivers have road-rage
All of my friends say it's a pity
“they can actually afford to drive”

but I'm stuck with all the public

Chorus 2
ways
to get home
take the train or the bus they tell me
train, tram or bus in case it rains
hope it don't rain

Bridge
If there are no seats left then you'll have to stand
if there is no standing space then do the best you can
when all of your options go you'll have to wait outside
just stand outside in the rain

Verse 3
Obviously I hate the city
but I will move there anyway
all of my friends notice I'm shitty
“...ugh...”
I'm limited to public

Chorus 3
ways
to get home
taking train or the bus certainly
train, tram or bus and it will rain
oh it will rain...
Track Name: Turtle Doves
Verse 1
You held my hands
and walked with me slowly
we took our chance
I knew you wouldn't fall...

Verse 2
I heard your heart
beating so gently
right from the start
I knew that I'd

Chorus 1
Fallen for you
fallen for you

Verse 3
You saw my face
and looked into my eyes
when in that place
I knew you wouldn't fall...

Verse 4
Now I'm alone
I think of you only
so long ago
you knew that I'd

Chorus 2
Fallen for you
fallen for you
fallen for you

Instrumental Bridge

Verse 5
I felt your love
and followed it blindly
like turtle doves
I knew that I'd

Chorus 3
Fallen for you
fallen for you
fallen for you
Track Name: Losing My Mind
I have
lost control of
my wife
and family

It was lost a long time ago

So I have
lost control of
my life
can you see?

It was lost a long time ago
lost a long time ago-o-o-o
lost a long time before you came home to me
home to me

She said “where has
all your fight gone?
I find
you lazy”

It was lost a long time ago

“and where have
all the lights gone
in your mind?
I think you're crazy”

They were lost a long time ago
lost a long time ago-o-o-o
lost a long time before you came home to me
home to me

But I really don't need
my sanity
no more
then presently
my memories
at all

He said “There is
no more time left
please place
your last bets”

Think this was lost a long time ago

But I put down
my life savings
satisfied my craving

And I lost a long time ago
lost a long time ago-o-o-o
lost a long time before you came home to me
home to me
Track Name: Running
Verse 1
Cold winter mornings
ice in my bones
frozen hard awnings
outside
my hips aren't moving
not even close
gradually losing
my pride

Pre-Chorus 1
All through the evenings that were meant for two
and on through summer I'll be waiting for you
the early morning of your fateful return
I'll see the sun shine in your eyes
I'll see the sun shine in your eyes

Chorus 1
I'll be
run running run running
running to the light that I see right in front of me
running run running run
I just can't feel the pain at all
run running run running
running to the light that I see right there in my dreams
running run running run
I just can't feel the pain at all
feel the pain at all...

Verse 2
Dark shapes surround me
close to me heart
they're looking through me
but why?
My lips aren't moving
yet there they are
gradually losing
my life

Pre-Chorus 2
All through the evenings that were meant for two
and on through summer I was waiting for you
that early morning of your fateful return
I saw the sun shine in your eyes
I saw the sun shine in your eyes

Chorus 2
Now I'm
run running run running
running to the light that I see right in front of me
run running run running run
I just can't feel the pain at all
run running run running
running to the light that I see right there in my dreams
running run running run
I just can't feel the pain at all
feel the pain at all...

Instrumental Bridge
