Track Name: Have We Met Before?
Are you thinking?
is she close?
do you struggle with umbrellas?
are you leaving?
are you home?
have you timed this badly?
have we met before?

are you staying?
did you fall?
can you count to ten in German?
can you whisper?
can you lie?
did you design your own website?
have we met before?

are you sleeping?
are you wise?
what can you see from your window?
are you hungry?
are you calm?
are you on a great adventure?
have we met before?

are you reading?
did you choose?
can you see into the future?
are you listening?
are you scared?
will you know it when you see it?
have we met before?
Track Name: One of Those Things feat. Paul Haworth
Pictures of a face
Descriptions of the day
I don’t know what to say about that

Pictures
Pictures of a face
Descriptions the day
He walked away
It was raining
And this pain in your heart never went
You never said
It would feel this way and I want you to stay
That’s not what I meant to say
But I mean it
I mean it
Yeah right
There’s your honesty
Honestly, I’m feeling fine
Intelligent design
Line of eye-shadow tears and more wine
I don’t mind if I do
Do you like my new shoes
Mums, dads and home truths

Like: what are we going to do about you
You used to be such a happy child
You dialled the number
Didn’t speak
How do new lovers meet
Incredible feats
Of bravery
Wavering baby steps favouring
Wild mood swings
We were never not quite on the brink
Not trying to not think
Of missed connections
Missing links
Rose tints
It’s just one of those things

Imagining you
It’s just one of those things we do

Things things
So many things
So much to say
Lonely strings
Catch the bouquet
Hey hey
Here’s your soulmate
Spinning plates
One topples
It’s too late
It breaks
Industrial estates
And a canvas of cannibals of our entwined fates
So let’s find a place
To be complete
Find names we repeat
Find signs in the names of her street
And when you sleep
It’s still there
Always there
In a necklace of amber
Take care
Of your paint and your brushes
You know the way she is
The way she pushes
A greater weight than a lifetime of crushes
Playing back the day’s rushes
Here’s the scene where you see him
And you don’t know what to say
And I don’t know what you say about that

Pictures of a face
I don’t know what to say about that
Descriptions of the day
He walked away

I suppose
Some boys
Spend their whole life joking
Reading lines like karaoke
And opening wounds
Tombs
Visiting unspoken rooms
In the Crowlands
No romance
No shall we dance
Circumstance
Limping men with beers cans
Fortunes old hands
Reading lines of love, life, good times and pretty bad plans
Plots and parades
Every day
Every night
The end was always in sight
And when it ends
It never ends
It descends
Into the centre of the earth
Wish this curse
Could be lifted
Sometimes the world makes me feel like I never existed
And I existed
When she was laughing

Pictures of a face
I don’t know what to say about that
Fortunes old hands
Overrunning the land with you
When you were laughing
When she was laughing
Track Name: I'm Yohan Blake
Lost, i am lost
In a little place
With the human race
One of them, said to me.
have you seen my wife,
I'm looking for my life

I'm Johan Blake,
Always second place.
second bloody place.
Mr Bolt said to me
'its time to get some moves
you need a funky groove

I am a man
My mother told me so
and now i've got to go
Got to find me a face
Have you seen my wife
I'm looking for my life
Track Name: We're All a Bit Scared, but Don't be Wet like a Flannel
We're all a bit scared, we're all a bit scared
but don't be wet, don't be wet, don't be wet.

I've been running, mostly nowhere, but don't be wet

We're all a bit scared, we're all a bit scared
but don't be wet, don't be wet, don't be wet
like a flannel

I've been chasing mostly nothing, but don't be wet
I've been running mostly nowhere but don't be wet

We're all a bit scared, we're all a bit scared
but don't be wet, don't be wet, don't be wet
like a flannel
Track Name: Red Red Red
Red Red Red Red Red Red Red Red Red Red Red Red
Track Name: Every Sock Gets a Hole
When i was younger i used to laugh
at how people gave socks as presents to each other
oh how they are laughing at me now
now socks are all that i want
they're all i ever want

for every sock gets a hole
oh oh oh oh oh oh

Oh what a tiny life span
Be it thick, or thin, or sewed by your gran.

Yeah now i know for sure
That socks are not born in the draw,
and every sock get a hole
oh oh oh oh oh

Give me yellow, give me blue,
give me vermillion,
but don't give me one pair,
give me a million.

For every sock gets a hole
Oh oh oh oh
Track Name: Morning
It's nice in the morning, it's nice in the morning.
I've got butter on my bread
i've got thoughts in my head.

Its nice in the morning, it's nice in the morning
I got the sun on my toast,
i got the sun on my toast.

It's nice in the morning.
It's nice in the morning.
The Quiet is the king,
the breeze it does sing.

You're nice in the morning
You're nice in the morning
You gaze into your brew
Oh the morning was builtfor you.

Its nice in the morning,
Its nice in the morning
I got my butter on my face
She's got smiles on her face
We got morning all over place
Track Name: Southern Man Who Knows and Grows about Plants
Southern man who grows and knows about plants.
Are you ok? Are you ok?

The man who lies in fields is dying slow
The boy who talks to trees is on his own
Every road is just a field you know
All the nice things lie beneath.

Southern man who grows and knows about plants.
Are you ok? Are you ok?

The man who sows the seeds is dying
The boy who wonders by the moons glow
Most of this was never meant you know
All the nice things lie beneath.

Southern man who grows and knows about plants.
Are you ok?
Track Name: Woes
Was it worth it for the view.
It all looked good from up there.
All the roses were in bloom.
There was pollen in the air.
It all comes and goes.
It all comes and goes.
All these woes.

I put three daisies in the notebook
And watched the petals all fall out.
It made a mark upon the paper.
A mark that could not be rubbed out.

It all comes and goes.
All these woes.
All these woes.
Track Name: Finger On My Head
There's no escape but i'm looking out
and i'll sit because i'm tired
i'll never see you again but i've got a picture of us
I put my finger on my head so i can just see you
Let me be ,something dies every day and i've got plenty of hours
I put my finger on my head so i can just see you
Every silver lining has a cloud
Track Name: Asleep on a Train
My wife ran off with the butcher again.
So now i'm sleeping on a train
and i'm wearing blue because
i'm feeling blue.
Track Name: Reaching for the Book and Time, While Storms Form on the Left
He knew all the waves
Some of them by name
He kept them in a book
One he called 'time'
And time was with him again
Forming on the left
What if this voyage
would take him to death
And if this was the end
There was so much he wished,
he wished he had said.
