Track Name: I've Always Wanted You
I’ve always wanted you
I’ve always wanted to
Be the lover you have always wanted, too

I’ve always liked your style
Your ass, your feet, your smile
Bring them over to my bedsit domicile

My friends are dying to DO you (do you)
They’d lay my life down to chew you (chew you)
Chew on your pretty face
Put me in my place
I’d never let ‘em get through to you

Repeat Verse 1 & 2

Track Name: You're Still A Liar
All the world's laughing, now I'm crying over you
Everyone told me you would never be true
You said the cheating had stopped long ago
But you're still a liar
And I'm dying to know.......

Why did you tell me that you had to work late
When I found you up town going out on a date?
You said it was business that you had to arrange
But you're still a liar
And you won't ever change

How many lines must you carry on spinning?
I've lost a battle but the war I am winning
This is not the end
This is just a new beginning again

So don't think that I'm such a fool that I would
Keep you warm in my bed while you're up to no good
Just take your belongings and head out the door
'Cause you're still a liar
I don't want lies anymore
You're still a liar
I don't want lies anymore
Track Name: City Fox
City fox in my window
Stood far side of the tarmac
Looking for comfort, finding none

City fox at my doorstep
Pinstripe grey of a jawline
Breaking into a limping run

Bins locked away
Others stand too high
Plastic mountains to its eye

Bridge

Repeat middle

City fox on the corner
Sensing night is a shelter
Never to see the city sun
Never to see the city sun
Never to see the city sun
Track Name: All That I Want For Myself
You give me all that I want for myself
I could not ask you for anything else
If I was poor, you would still be my wealth
You give me all that I want for myself

Numb and drifting around
Wondering when a true lover’s going to be found
Then you found me, fixing your bluest eye
And here we are now

Kindness written right through
All that you say and in everything that you do
How you show it
I’m lucky in loving you

Chorus

Testing days may arise
Maybe hello will be turning into goodbyes
Time apart, will it make us strong?
Will I still belong?

If our love can survive
There would be no better reason to be alive
We can do it
We know we can make it through

Chorus
Track Name: Saturday Morning
Saturday morning I wake up
And the problems that weigh heavy through the week
Become as light as the sun
Until they’re up and gone

Feel like I’m ready to shake up
All the footprints out from underneath my feet
So I can stand up and say
I love a Saturday

Saturday morning
Feeling so happy
I’m in mourning when it ends
Saturday morning
Captures a moment
Like a warning from your friends

Saturday morning is alright
No work, no school, no outside pressures
Cooking up a storm in my head
I’m doing chores instead

Washing out my pants
Watering my plants
Hooverin’ up the dust
Toasting up a crust…..

Chorus

Saturday morning is over
Taken over by the afternoon and straight
Into an evening we go
Then it’s tomorrow

So Saturday morning forever
I have felt this way since I was knee-bone high
To every tinker & whore
Who loves a Sunday more

Chorus
Track Name: Surprised To Know
When I look into your eyes
Love is real, I realise
Tell me if I seem surprised to know

Whispering the last goodbye
Stepping out from sheltered sky
You can tell I seem surprised to know

How far my feelings run
For you alone
The ones I always shun
Remain unknown
And though it may not help me
I’m sure you’ll always be the one I will really know

What this love releases now
Cuts me into pieces now
Maybe you would be surprised to know

Bridge ( over verse chords )

Repeat 1st two verses
Track Name: Sour Faced Woman
The day was congenial.............
Track Name: One Word
One word, and I'll be a friend of yours
Track Name: Just Between You And Me
True happiness, just between you and me
Track Name: Journey's End
(instrumental)
