Track Name: No Longer 16 (Hopes & Dreams & Goldfish pt1)
No Longer 16

Cold street corners spitting in the air and running so fast with the fire in our hearts.
Trying so hard to be a little older we thought we were the best (yeah) one and all.
Woah – We were wild and free
Woah – We could be what we wanted to . . .

Be like the heros in the movies talking so hard and acting real mean, collars pulled up and penknives in our pockets kidding ourselvse we were Jimmy Dean
Drinking beer though it makes you feel sick you don’t notice the days passing so quick. In a hot summer haze or black winter nights not a care in the world we don’t feel the cold bite, and we’ll never grow up we’re gonna be alright.

Wild and free we were too young to touch
Wild and free but we flow just a little too much
But we are older now you don’t grow up looking like your dreams and it sure is colder now coz boy we are no longer 16

Loves adventures in the park at midnight, a schoolgirls squeal and a young boys charm. Kid Casanova wants to be a real man trade innocense for glory it won’t do you no harm

Smoke cheap cigarettes that make you feel sick, you don’t notice the days passing so quick. And the warm summer girls and wintertime fights not a care in the world we don’t feel the cold bite and we’ll never grow up we’ll always be alright.

Wild and free we were too young to touch
Wild and free but we flow just a little too much
But we are older now your goldfish sleep with your hopes and dreams and it sure is colder now coz boy we are no longer 16

But young summer thrills die in the winters night not a care in the world now we feel the cold bite. Do we have to grow up ? Will we be alright ?

Wild and free we were too young to touch
Wild and free but we flow just a little too much
But we are older now you kiss goodbye to your hopes and dreams and it sure is colder now coz boy we are no longer 16
Track Name: Everytime
Everytime

Everytime we fall out girl I don’t wanna make up with you
Its everything you do and everything you say I wish you would go away
Everytime we fall out girl I just wanna break up with you

Everytime we argue girl I don’t wanna make up with you
You never listen all you do it scream and shout I just wanna shut you out
Everytime we argue girl I just wanna break up with you

And here’s the brick wall that we beat our heads against you say I should stay show me the evidence
Track Name: Just Three Words
Just 3 Words

I want to beguile you and hypnotise you make you think that I’m the best thing since sliced bread.
Get into your head, get you into my bed, roll the dice cos that’s my vice and it could be so nice

Coz St Valentine said you’ll be mine when I make you say

Just three words that I long to hear, just three words from far or near
Come and whisper in my ear
Just three words that will mean so much just three words that are gonna touch my heart and blow it all apart . .

But in a good way, even on a bad day. The sight of you is all it takes to clear the blues away
Lets go for a swim, I wanna dive right in your so hot the waters warm lets kick up a storm.

Just three words that I long to hear, just three words from far or near
Come and shout them in my ear
Just three words that will change my life just three words I’m balance on the edge, I’m on the edge of a knife

You probably won’t but you just might
Before it’s time to say goodnight
I gotta know if I am right
Track Name: The L Bomb
The L bomb

I thought everything was fine the way it was we got along together just because. But you had a different idea when you said thise words that no one wants to hear

Did it hit you in the night or was it always in your sights

To drop the L Bomb
You dropped the L Bomb and you blew it all away what else can I say, I had to go away.

Everything to you must be black and white if it’s not one or the other it ain’t right, but greys my favourite colour shade and hue, when you said those words there was only one thing I could do

I didn’t want to hurt you I didn’t want to bring you down

Now its years gone by and the tables turned. I guess its just another lesson learned. Oh I had this wonderful idea I said those little words you didn’t want to hear

It hit me on the night, so I got you in my sights but I didn’t get it right

Drop drop the L Bomb Baby
Track Name: Under The Needle
Under The Needle

A thousand little lines engraved so deep into my skin show my addiction for you. Keep that taste forever never sour on my lips its true so true. Give me something real to hold on to past broken dreams and yesterday’s beliefs and faded memories so blue

I’d go down under the needle for you

You’ll always be besdie me even if I am a thousand miles away from you. I never say forever but forevers what I have in shades of blue. It gives me something real to hold on to even when I can no longer hold on to you. Past broken dreams and yesterdays beliefs and faded memories of you.

Hear the buzz as it begins. I’m ready to dye my skin again. Needle scratch and I will bleed, deeper in to feed my need
Track Name: The Feel Shit Hit Of The Summer (pop mix)
The Feel Shit Hit Of The Summer

I feel like I’m in love with every pretty girl I see but they don’t notice me.

In the summertime, oh they look so fine how I wish that they were mine all mine
Any old time, with a high hemline but they give me no sign.

And I see them walking in the summer sun and it would make my day if they’d only look my way
They just leave me sweating in the city heat. Would it be too much to ask for a little touch.
Track Name: Looking Like My Dreams (Hopes and Dreams and Goldfish pt2)
Looking Like My Dreams

I’ve got nothing to lose, you can’t take that away from me.
I got nothing to lose, so you can leave me be.

I was going to be a rich man
I was going to be a king
I would never talk when I had the chance to sing but . . .

I never grew up looking like my dreams

I got nothing to lose so there’s nothing you can say
I got nothing to lose I’m a dog whose had his

I would always be a free man
I would never be tied down
Why play the straight guy if I would be the clown but . . .

I went diving for pearls but all I got was oysters
I sought help from my church but got kicked in the cloisters
Now I’m looking for the man I used to be in my childhood dreams

I was gonna rule the world with an iron rod
Why settle for mortality if I could be a god but . . .
Track Name: A Million Smiles
A Million Smiles

Sending you a million smiles from a million miles away just to let you know you’ll be mine one day
Sending you a ton of love from above the skies so blue just to let you know my sights are set on you

I am the one and I’ve got a loaded gun and I’m pointing it straight at your heart.
I will not linger with my trigger finger waiting till you come in view till then I’m

Sending you a warm embrace to chase the blues away just to let you know, you’ll be mine one day
Sending you a great big kiss from these lips so true just to let you know my sights are set on you.

Shoot shoot those silver bullets of love. I’ll shoot them right into your heart so we’ll never be apart.

I got my sights they’re set on you
Track Name: The Beautiful Boy
The Beautiful Boy

You opened your door and let down your guard. The beautiful boy crept in and stole your heart.
He filled your life with light and love must be an angel who was sent from above.

The Beautiful boy who went away, why couldn’t he stay for one more day
Now the moonlight has flown the beautiful bot had left you all alone.

Sometimes you see him, in the dead of the night the smile in his eyes but no, a trick of the light
And where there was sunshine now there’s just cold and all that you feel is alone and old

Now the nights turned to day the beautiful boy had left and gone away

In the cold light of day the boy stayed but his beauty went away
Track Name: Ou Est Le Chat Noir
Ou Est Le Chat Noir

Oh la la, Oh la la is all I can say, all I can say to you

This evening isn’t going to last unless I think of something fast to say to you what can I do
With no common linguistic bond no matter just how damn fond I am of you I guess I’m screwed
And I should have paid attention all those years ago in school

I can tell you that my bicycle is red but that lead balloon won/t even get me lifted off the start.
And I can tell you that my aunty has a quill but will that information get me closer to your heart

Oh bonjour et au revoir, crème de menthe and abattoir is all I can say, all I can say to you.
Sacre bleu et Notre Dame, chardonay et Sauvignon is all I can say, all I can say to you
Track Name: Staying Out Forever
Staying Out Forever

You know I’m a hundred thousand miles away and I’m never coming home.
Seems to me I’ve always been better off on my own.
I went off to explore today, along an old forgotten track.
I went as far as I could go but this time I’m not coming back

Don’t leave a light on, cos I’m never coming home, I’m staying out forever.

The stars look very different now and oh so very clear.
I see things as they really are so I’m gonna stay right here.
Even though I am so far away, its where I wanna be
You know that I’m happy now, in my own company

Gonna take that rocket ride out to the other side to see if I can really be me
Make outer space my goal with my heart and soul to see if I can really be free
Track Name: Kiss Goodbye (Hopes and Dreams and Goldfish pt3)
Kiss Goodbye

Hey you with the pretty face, welcome to the human race well you can’t get by on your looks alone when your beauty fades all your luck is gone.
Hey you with your plans and schemes always just a little downstream well you work so hard everyday but in the end real life got in the way.

What you gonna do when your dreams just don’t come true

Now its time to kiss goodbye to all your hopes and dreams, when you get to your future it never what it seems.
Now it’s time to kiss goodbye to all your hopes and dreams then one day you realise that you don’t know what it all means.

You were the brightest star you were gonna go so far, so far so good till suddenly there’s a little baby on your knee.
You always made the grade you thought you had it made chasing after your pots of gold but when the night time comes all the rainbows go

You never know what life is gonna throw at you, you gotta play the hand you’ve been dealt.
You don’t know what’s just around the corner was that a kiss or a kick in the face you just felt.

NEVER kiss goodbye to all your hopes and dreams
