Track Name: Jealousy
Jealousy

Jealousy is getting the better of me
Languishing, what is wrong with me?
Holding on to a dim light, a thin thread, that's out of sight
All I know is that I can't carry on this way

And all I know is you
So what am I to do
Please calm me down
Please calm me down, down, dear....
Before I disappear

Jealousy is getting the better of me
A holiday will not remedy this fear
Waiting for a solution, a breakthrough, a cure
All I know that is that I can't carry on this way

And And all I know is you
So what am I to do
Please calm me down
Please calm me down, down, dear....
Before I disappear
Track Name: Santa Fe (Demo)
Santa Fe

Heaven sent
You were like a present I should not have kept
A sticker on your forehead saying 'breakable'
And I broke you bad.

M.I.A
Waking up to nothing on New Year’s day
Thinking of a holiday to Santa Fe
To get over us

Chorus:
When I saw you
I should’ve kept on going
But I couldn’t move
The God’s of Justice spoke
And I got what I deserved

And when you saw me
Your hand become an angry fist
I agree with
Everything that’s coming my way
But forgive me if you can

Unbeknown
Every time we speak it's in a stranger tone,
When I go to sleep I hold the telephone
Just in case you call

Your Blue shirt
Hanging on the back of my bedroom door
The scent of you is something I can’t ignore
No matter how hard I try

Chorus:
When I saw you
I should’ve kept on going
But I couldn’t move
The God’s of Justice spoke
And I got what I deserved

And when you saw me
Your hand become an angry fist
I agree with
Everything that’s coming my way
But forgive me if you can

Secretly bleeding my heart out to you
I am making the best of a bad situation
Secretly bleeding my heart out to you (X2)

Santa Fe…………
Track Name: The Sailor Song (Demo)
The Sailor Song

I was your sailor; your demon; your lover; your overbearing
Best friend hoping for some attention
I saw through your automatic heartache, now I know
That love is as love was; it’s downhill from here

Should I run a million miles away from every memory of you?
Let that be a lesson to me
Think not with my heart but with my head.

No I never really had it in me, did I, did I?
No I never really had it in me, did I?
No I never really had it in me, did I, did I, did I?

I was your mattress, your armchair, your TV, your everlasting
Talk show host, mouthing “baby, you’re wonderful”
I fell under your control, switch on switch off, robotic
And I lost every ounce of myself

Should I run a million miles away from every memory of you?
Let that be a lesson to me
Think not with my heart but with my head.

No I never really had it in me, did I, did I?
No I never really had it in me, did I?
No I never really had it in me, did I, did I, did I?

No I never really had it in me, did I, did I?
No I never really had it in me, did I?
No I never really had it in me, did I, did I, did I?

I was your sailor; your demon; your lover; your overbearing
Best friend hoping for some attention
Track Name: Life Is Confusing
Life Is Confusing

I have done things that I really should not do
Crossed your belligerent path many times
And I’m aware I can be non-particular
But you are clearly more savvy than I

I f you could see me
Wandering wildly
You would be laughing effortlessly
I’ve been divided
I’ve been inside it
I’ve been deluded many a time

Already know that life is confusing
Questioning what? I don’t know anymore
And yes I know that we could be losing
Everything we have worked on before
Already know that life is confusing
Questioning what? I don’t know anymore
And yes I know that we could be losing
Everything we have worked on before

A sense of politeness don’t come to you naturally
You are polluted, diluted and more
Still I return to you why I am not sure
There is no remedy; there is no cure

If you could see me
Wandering wildly
You would be smiling effortlessly
I’ve been divided
I’ve been inside it
I’ve been deluded many a time

Already know that life is confusing
Questioning what? I don’t know anymore
And yes I know that we could be losing
Everything we have worked on before
Already know that life is confusing
Questioning what? I don’t know anymore
And yes I know that we could be losing
Everything we have worked on before
Track Name: Gold
Gold

Circulating open wide, oh much to my annoyance
And I have no patience when your ratio is in close proximity to me
Bastard hands that rub against me, and incense me
Violating every pore and every inch of my genetic make up, make up

I don’t want to love you like gold
I don’t want to be bought or sold
You’re making me nervous,
That’s for sure
Stipulating what I can do
Did it ever occur to you?
You’re making me nervous
I don’t want you

Masquerading as congenial but I see darker shades in you
And when you try to kiss me, I contort, retort and walk away
I will not facilitate this, my own malice with your inability
To even to see that we are completely incompatible

I don’t want to love you like gold
I don’t want to be bought or sold
You’re making me nervous,
That’s for sure
Stipulating what I can do
Did it ever occur to you?
You’re making me nervous
I don’t want you

Oh oh oh,
Oh oh oh
I dont want you
I don’t want you

I don’t want to love you like gold
I don’t want to be bought or sold
You’re making me nervous,
That’s for sure
Stipulating what I can do
Did it ever occur to you?
You’re making me nervous

I don’t want you
Track Name: The Confession
The Confession

Four leaf clover
My Bosa nova
And it’s alright by me
Yes it’s alright by me

A chain reaction
My leg in traction
And it’s alright by me
Yes it’s alright by me

Forgive me for I have sinned
I have taken everything
And I’ll have to live with it each day
Forgive me for I have sinned
I have taken everything
And I’ll have to live with it each day

It’s alright, it’s alright by me
It’s alright, it’s alright by me
Track Name: January (Demo)
January

Don’t fret, it’s not worth it
I’ll fight it, I’ll fight this disease
Silence, hereafter
It’s not over, it’s not over yet

Why on earth did you call
Me last night, after all
That you said the night before
That was so uncalled for

You broke my heart
You broke my heart

You got me in a headlock
I’m wrestling, grappling free
Once more, with feeling
Just look at the mess we are in

Why on earth did you call
Me last night, after all
That you said the night before
That was so uncalled for

You broke my heart
You broke my heart

Did you think I would be separated, or elevated?
It is tragic how I am suffering and you are not all
Did you want me to be motivated or reinstated?
Slam my head against the wall

Why on earth did you call
Me last night, after all
That you said the night before
That was so uncalled for

You broke my heart
You broke my heart
Track Name: Shoot An Arrow
Shoot An Arrow

Mr. No-one, he wanted to be a star
That’s all we are trying to do
We’re just tryin’ to make our mark

He believed in a big future
Wanted everyone to look and say “there he goes…”
He said: “Life’s much better when you’re rich”
I said: “Isn’t a man made of more than his clothes?"

He told me: “I wanna be somebody”
(I wanna be somebody)
“I know I am somebody”
(I know I am somebody, yeah)
“I wanna be somebody”
(I wanna be somebody)
“I know I am somebody
(I know I am someboy)
But I need real somebody, yeah

You shoot your arrow in the air
And it flies real high
Well, good for you but that don’t mean
Everybody’s going to
You shoot your arrow in the air
And it flies real high
Well good for you but that don’t mean
Everybody’s going to

Soon you’re gonna rise up singing
Believing you can leave all this behind
Your daddy ain’t rich and your mamma never loved you
But still you’re gonna spread your wings and fly

He said: “if only they could really see me
But how could I ever be sure
Life’s much better when you see it on TV
This hope is a curse and a cure”

He told me: “I wanna be somebody”
(I wanna be somebody)
“I know I am somebody”
(I know I am somebody, yeah)
“I wanna be somebody”
(I wanna be somebody)
“I know I am somebody
(I know I am someboy)
But I need real somebody, yeah

You shoot your arrow in the air
And it flies real high
Well, good for you but that don’t mean
Everybody’s going to
You shoot your arrow in the air
And it flies real high
Well good for you but that don’t mean
Everybody’s going to

I wanna be somebody
(I wanna be somebody)
I know I am somebody
(I know I am somebody)
But I need real somebody
I wanna be somebody
(I wanna be somebody)
I know I am somebody
(I know I am somebody)
But I need real somebody
I wanna be somebody
(I wanna be somebody)
I know I am somebody
(I know I am somebody)
But I need real somebody
I wanna be somebody
(I wanna be somebody)
I know I am somebody
(I know I am somebody)
But I need real somebody

You shoot your arrow in the air
And it flies real high
Well, good for you but that don’t mean
Everybody’s going to
You shoot your arrow in the air
And it flies real high
Well good for you but that don’t mean
Everybody’s going to
Track Name: Edit
Edit

The coldness of the tiles
Soften my delirium into a smile
I feel it in my bones
An aching I can no longer put into words
See, all I ever wanted
Was some salvation here
My greatest mistake
Was waking up

I don’t know now
Was it all worth the while?
I need my back-up file
To make a correction
Eradicate all the wrong
I broke myself in two.

Beyond the gravity
I swear I would crash right on through this bathroom floor
I don’t have the strength
To pose as a saint

I don’t know now
Was it all worth the while?
I need my back-up file
To make a correction
Eradicate all the wrong
I broke myself in two.

Hit my mum, hit my daddy, hit the loner in the alley
Hit us all me and you and him and her
Suck us in like a vacuum
Spit us out like old chewing gum
In truth there is nothing here at all
Hit my mum, hit my daddy, hit the loner in the alley
Hit us all me and you and him and her
Suck us in like a vacuum
Spit us out like old chewing gum
In truth there is nothing here at all

I don’t know now
Was it all worth the while?
I need my back-up file
To make a correction
Eradicate all the wrong
I broke myself in two.
Track Name: A Little Longer
A Little Longer

I had to be sure that our final words
Were definite and not premature
But now that we’re done, I cannot bear
To hear your voice no more

No bride and groom in my darkened room
I wake up alone and struggle to rise
My stomach’s in knots, my eyelids are sore
And loneliness remains

I heard us say “Goodbye”
And maybe I’m having regrets
I thought we’d last
A little longer than we did.

There’s pieces of you lying around
A discarded shoe, your favourite towel
And all I can do is gather them up
And put them away.

I heard us say “Goodbye”
And maybe I’m having regrets
I thought we’d last
A little longer than we did
A little longer than we did
