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 Repeat Middle Noise Repeat Verse 1 & 2 Repeat Middle

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

City Fox 01:50
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

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
5.
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
6.
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 middle Repeat 1st two verses

The day was congenial.............

One Word 03:02
One word, and I'll be a friend of yours
9.
True happiness, just between you and me
