So Stop the World

It’s another Monday morning
and I’ve gotta leave before you wake up
I’m fighting through that traffic half asleep under my makeup
Guess I wasn’t made right for the city life
Cos every night I’m dreaming there’s a place
Where the hours turn to days
Real life evaporates
So come on let’s slip away

Stop the world I wanna get off
Stop the noise and stop the clocks
Cos you and me got a little catching up to do
Ooh yeah
Sure won’t hurt to take some time
The world keeps spinning around just fine
And the only thing I need right now is you
So stop the world
Just stop the world

I know I said to catch that dream you gotta go out there and get it
But ambition’s like the bottle it’ll kill you if you let it
Well I don’t wanna be a winner if I lose the only thing I can’t replace
And that look upon your face
Says I left it a little late
So come on let’s slip away yeah

Stop the world I wanna get off…

And a long hot summer night
Just you and my guitar
I’ll be lying in your arms out underneath the stars
Don’t you hear that highway calling
Calling out our names?
C’mon baby
It’s not too late…

Stop the world I wanna get off…

Make My Day

You swore I was the only one
Who really understood you
I bet I’m not the only one
Who ended with “How could you?”

I shoulda guessed, I woulda left, I could be free
Why don’t you go and blame it all on me
But just one thing before you leave…

Go right ahead and make my day
I wanna shout
The sun’s come out
And I won’t make the same mistake
Go right ahead I’ll watch you walk away
Leave your keys so I don’t need
To worry you’ll be comin’ back someday
Go right ahead and make my day
Go right ahead and make my day

Don’t say that we can work it out
When we both know it’s over
You say that we all make mistakes
But I see it more like closure

I shoulda guessed, I woulda left, I could be free
But just one thing before you leave…

Yeah, go right ahead and make my day…

And I’ll be fine without you
Yeah I can hardly wait
I know there’s someone out there
Waiting to hold me and love me
Just give me a break…

Helium

When I was a little kid
You gave me the greatest gift
A beautiful heart shaped balloon
I was way too young to know
The more you try to keep a hold
The easier it is to lose

As it drifted away I was broken
Cos suddenly everything changed
For once in my life
I realised
That I’d never see it again

Helium
Always trying to escape
Helium
Every precious atom floating into space
Now that you’re gone
I’m left on my own
And suddenly love’s not a game
It’s like I’m 8 years old, tears in my eyes
Trying to understand, gazing at the sky

Every time we fall in love
We give a little piece of us
Give a little piece of us away
Even though we all know that
We’ll never ever get it back
Once that perfect love begins to fade

As you drifted away I was broken
Cos suddenly everything changed
An echo through time
I realised
I’ll never see you again

Helium…

Bad Habit

You used to let me share a cigarette
I got so sick that I’d sooner forget
You got me into bad habits, bad habits
You swore Tequila never messes with your head
Woke up at six am feeling like death
You got me into bad habits, bad habits

You always broke the rules unlike the rest of us
(Couldn’t figure it out)
(Felt so wrong when you weren’t around)
And when you look at me there’s something you still got
Ooh you still got

You’re the one bad habit
That I just can’t quit
Maybe you and me got something that we don’t admit
You’re the one bad habit
That wouldn’t last but
We’re still holding on cos you’re the habit I can’t kick

My friends keep telling me I should be moving on
It’s not so easy when the feelings this strong
Not giving up my bad habit, bad habit
I guess it’s true opposites attract
But If I’m not addicted I’m a fool for coming back
Not giving up my bad habit, bad habit

You always broke the rules unlike the rest of us…

You’re the one bad habit…

Gold Rush

A one horse town still half asleep
Then I heard someone screaming I’ve struck gold
It’s dog eat dog and me me me
N’all that stuff that really leaves me cold

Count me out
They’ll be diggin’ in the dust
Count me out
When I feel your touch
I got love and that’s enough

There’s a gold rush comin’
But I’ll be lying in the sun
Cos I don’t care
You’re all I need I swear
There’s a gold rush comin’
The whole world’s runnin’ round like fools
But that’s cool
Why would I need gold when I got you?

If gold is all you fight for in this world
Then wake up smell the coffee get a life
Cos cash can’t beat the rush of boy meets girl
If you got the choice then don’t think twice

Count me out…

There’s a gold rush comin’…

Nothing Serious

It was nothing serious
When we went on that first date
It was nothing serious
When you crashed at my place
I pretended it was nothing
When you said can I leave my things
It was cool when I called and your message had changed
To “Hey guys we’re not in”

Is there a time?
Do you ever know
If love is real
Or a game he’ll just let go?

When you said you’d found the one
And the days and weeks turned into months
When you said what would I be
Without you lying next to me
When you said I miss you more
Than anyone I’ve ever missed before
I only wish I knew
If this was more than nothing serious for you

I guess that nothing serious
was the easy place to start
I kept it nothing serious
‘til I could trust your heart
I pretended I was nonchalant
Like I didn’t care so much
But in truth I was hooked and I’d fallen in love
Couldn’t live without your touch

Is there a time? …

When you said you’d found the one…

Remember when we heard the news
Corridors and waiting rooms
Test results and sleepless nights
Nervous smiles and precious life

And all those times you held me close
Holding on to fragile hope
You always said “we’ll be ok”
When I was lost and so afraid
When everybody else was gone
You were there, you were strong
And finally I knew
That this was more than nothing serious for you

Shooting For the Moon

Do you remember there was a time
We thought dreams really did come true?
Giving in to the daily grind
We could fight it but what’s the use?

When you’re down so low
In the cold all alone
Tryin’ to figure out why why why
When you’re down so low
There’s only one place one place you can go

We’re shooting for the moon
What else can we do?
Shooting for the moon
Can someone tell me why?
Every single day
We keep the faith
Dreaming that we’ll fly
And maybe it’s no use
But still we keep on
Shooting for the moon

Maybe twenty years down the line
They’ll begin to look back and say
“They must’ve been out of their minds
to be giving it all away”

If we miss it by a mile
But still keep up the fight
At least we know we tried
And better to have lost
and not to count the cost
Knowing we were right

Shooting for the moon…

Yes

It’s funny how a single word
Is all you need to change the world
It can open every door
I’m positive you know it
So how about you show it
By using it a whole lot more

Every voice that got me here
Whispering in my ear
Telling me that I’m not beaten yet

Not givin’ up until you say “yes”
If you could just get that in your head
I’m sick of “ifs” and “buts” and “maybes”
Don’t even waste your breath
You know that “no” won’t cut it
I won’t settle for anything less
I wanna hear “yes”
I wanna hear “yes”
“Yes”
I wanna hear “yes”

When everything is going wrong
And all my friends are gone
I feel I’ve had enough
Through winter’s rain and snow
I’m sick of hearing “no”
I could use a little love

Only one way to get out of this mess
Nothin’s gonna change until you say “yes”
Nothing gonna change

Not givin’ up until you say “yes”…

Amaretto Kisses

If I were a sail boat
I’d sail back to your shore
If I were an eagle
I’d fly to your door
If I were a wild horse
I’d be back with you so soon
Cos you light up my world
When you walk in the room

When I’m lost and all alone
You’re the star that guides me home

I miss your Amaretto Kisses
And my only wish is
To be in grace beside you ’til then
I miss your champagne and strawberries
I get down on my knees
And pray I’ll be home soon again

If I were a rainbow
I’d bridge across your sky
If I were a feather
I’d float back into your life
This whole world over
Only one thing that I miss
Is the heaven that I find
In the sweetness of your kiss

When I’m lost and all alone
You’re the star that guides me home

I miss your Amaretto Kisses…

It’s so easy to dream
When you’re a thousand miles from home
I guess I’ll spend another night alone

Anywhere

You’re gonna go crazy outta your mind
Another week searching and I bet you go blind
Don’t kill yourself stressin’ cos you got me all wrong
I don’t need a long haul flight to the sun

I don’t care
I don’t care
As long as I’ve got you there
I don’t care
I don’t care

Let’s go anywhere
Any old beach just me and you
Anywhere
Maybe a shooting star or two
Don’t need a penthouse suite or cocktails by the pool
Just anywhere
As long as it’s with you do do do do do
Anywhere will do
Do do do do do do

I’ll be happy if we’re hugging as the sun comes up
Sitting in the sand with no one there but us
If it rains if it thunders if it pours
We’ll stay in bed and I’ll love you even more

I don’t care…

Let’s go anywhere
Any old beach just me and you
Anywhere
Maybe a shooting star or two
Don’t need a penthouse suite or cocktails by the pool
Just Anywhere

One day we’ll find the time
To swim with dolphins in the sea
We’ll cruise around L.A.
Head West on Sunset to the beach
We’ll see the Taj Mahal
And then we’ll chill in the Maldives
But right now all I want is you
And all you want is me

Anywhere…

Singer of My Song

This motel room is home tonight, for me and my guitar
Outside a lonely neon light shines like a broken star
The walls are thin, I hear a man say, “babe, we’re in too deep”
Sometimes my life is like a song I’ve written in my sleep

Maybe I’m going nowhere
Maybe there’s nowhere to go
Maybe I don’t know anything
Except what I already know

I don’t wanna own the world
I don’t wanna change the times
I don’t wanna hate the one I love
For all his petty crimes

I don’t wanna die when I am young
Or live a day too long
I just wanna serenade you tonight
And be the singer of my song

You say the bar’s half empty, I say that it’s half full
In here I cannot see the moon, but I can feel its pull
To live the life romantic was a foolish childhood prayer
But everyone’s a fool for love, when music’s in the air

Maybe I’ll get to heaven
Maybe it’s my next show
Maybe I won’t get anywhere
Except for where I want to go

I don’t wanna own the world
I don’t wanna change the times
I don’t wanna hate the one I love
For all his petty crimes

I don’t wanna die when I am young
Or live a day too long
I just wanna serenade you tonight
And be the singer of my song

The boy came for the maiden at the edge of the sea
At Scarborough Fair he’d wait patiently
For his one true love was meeting him there
But she never made it to Scarborough Fair

Beguiled by a minstrel, who stole her away
With a voice like an angel, he led her astray
And still there’s a boy who returns every year
To wait for his true love at Scarborough Fair

And he sings…

I don’t wanna own the world
I don’t wanna change the times
I don’t wanna hate the girl I love
For all her petty crimes

I don’t wanna die when I am young
Or live a day too long
I just wanna serenade you tonight
And be the singer of my song

Walking

Walking…direction unknown
Walking…strange to be on my own
I see myself…at least I think I do
Walking somehow to you

I lost the words, I tossed and turned
I watched you as the candle burned
You closed the door and disappeared
I followed signs that were not there

I’m Walking…the lamplight at my feet
Walking…I don’t recognize the street
I see myself…a shadow passing through
Walking somehow to you

A light goes off, a light goes on
A door is closed, the shades are drawn
I watch the silhouettes unfold
A night has never felt so cold

Walking…direction unknown
Walking…strange to be on my own
I see myself…at least I think I do
Walking…up and down this room
Walking…round and round the moon
I ask myself…tell me what you see
I see you walking…somehow to me

Never Gonna Change

You say you love me
But if you do
What’s with the pressure? I’m not gonna change just for you
You say let’s go out
But dress up cute
Why should I ditch my guitar for a new pair of shoes?

You say you wanna party all night long
But I’m lousy at dancing so how ’bout I write you a song?

You better believe it
I’m never gonna change, change, change
No backseat driver
Is gonna drive me insane, sane, sane
We could’ve been perfect
It’s going up in flames
You better believe it
I’m never gonna change, change, change

I try to tell you
That’s how I am
Why don’t you get it? Why can’t you understand?
And when we argue
You’re always right
And I feel like it’s pointless so why should I put up a fight?

You never listen you go on and on
But turn on the radio maybe they’re playing this song

You better believe it…

I’m never gonna change
I’m never gonna change

But I’m lousy at dancing so how ’bout I write you a song?

You better believe it…

CGI

Til the day I met you I led half a life
Like an actress in a movie before the CGI
Imagining a world how perfect it could be
Left acting on a film set with nothing real but me

And that’s the way it’s always been
Until your CGI kicked in

Now I’m flying through the sky
You lift me up so high
Before my life was green screen
Now I’m gazing at the stars
At Jupiter and Mars
No more staring at the ceiling
You took my life and changed it overnight
You lit it up, lit it up like CGI

Even now each time you stare into my eyes
You launch a thousand arrows shooting across the sky
When we touch I’m in a land of make believe
You’re my knight in shining armour who’s come to set me free

Some people say that it’s a sin
But when your CGI kicks in

Now I’m flying through the sky…

The Star That Guides You Home

You’re lyin’ awake in the night
So scared and so weak
All your worries are turning to ghosts
That watch you sweat
But won’t let you sleep

The winter seems longer this year
So dark and so cold
The flowers you planted are gone
But wait
In spring we’ll watch them grow

I’ll be the star that guides you home
When you’re broken, lost and alone
I’ll be there to catch your fall
I’ll stand beside you through the storm
And when darkness has frozen your bones
I’ll be the star that guides you home

When you feel like a rain cloud is hanging
Right over your head
I’ve got an umbrella that you can share
So you’ll never get wet

I’ll be the star that guides you home
When you’re broken, lost and alone
I’ll be there to catch your fall
I’ll stand beside you through the storm
And when darkness has frozen your bones
I’ll be the star that guides you home

Let Me Guess

You’ll be working late tonight maybe I should go to bed
You get back at 4am
and I can taste the love that lingers on your breath

Your innocent eyes make a lousy disguise
And pretty flowers won’t cover this mess

Let me guess
Are you switching on that smile I used to get?
And promising the promises you made when we met?
Let me guess
Are you telling her she’s beautiful instead
I’m sure the man I used to love would be dying of regret
But you got no intention
Of telling me that we’ve got nothing left
So let me guess
So let me guess

Did you try to fight that feeling or was I easy to forget?
And did you feel a little guilty when she first slipped off her dress?

Your innocent eyes make a lousy disguise
And pretty flowers won’t cover up this mess

Let me guess…

What if the tables turn
And I find someone new
He asks me if I’m single
And I forget to mention you
And if you put together
All the clues that I left
Would you forgive me if I needed another man’s caress?

Let me guess
Let me guess

Let me guess…

Happy

Can’t you tell by my smile so wide
Can’t you tell I can’t hold it inside
Can’t you tell from the way I rhyme
Can’t you tell, Can’t you tell
Why, oh why

I’m happy as a clam in a bright blue sea
I’m a blade of grass swayin’ in the breeze
I’m happy, I’m happy, I’m happy
I’m happy cos I woke up and it isn’t a dream
I’m watching you asleep lying next to me
I’m happy, I’m happy, I’m happy

Don’t you know everytime I start
I smile so much, feel like I’m never gonna stop
Watch my hands as they make big hearts
If you’re smiling, it’s alright, it’s all we got

I’m happy as a clam in a bright blue sea…

Simple Things

It may be raining
But the rain won’t bite
Up above the clouds somewhere
The Sun shines bright

Don’t look down or right or left
Keep looking straight ahead
But don’t forget

It’s the simple things
I really need
Like watching you asleep
And listening to you breathe
It’s the simple things
That set me free
Playin’ guitar on the beach
Til the summer’s out of reach
It’s the simple things I love
It’s you and me

You lie beside me
As the sun goes down
You can’t stop smiling
But that’s all I need right now

Don’t look down…

It’s the simple things…

I think I’m done with complicated stuff
Keep it simple L.O.V.E. Love
There’s nothing I’d rather do
I could have
All the money in the world but I’d
Trade it all to keep you by my side
There’s nothing I’d rather do
Than waste some time just me and you

It's Obvious

It’s obvious that we have a row
Before we even leave the house
It’s obvious that something’s going down
It’s obvious so just confess
You hate my vintage dress
Well, guess what, I couldn’t care less

You moan about the way I drive
Praise the Lord we’re still alive
So glad I stuck to water all damn night

Could it be misogyny?
Is it possible it’s you not me?

And it’s obvious
That I got nothing to lose
And it’s obvious
I’m sick and tired of listening to you
So you go back to lonely
While I find someone new
Cos it’s obvious
It’s obvious we’re through

Why don’t you turn the football down?
My ukulele’s drowned
It’s obvious that you just hate the sound
It’s obvious that something’s gone
You used to like my songs
When did everything we have go wrong?

Riptide

Something’s happening to me and you
Lighting up the night brighter than the moon
Couldn’t stop it if we wanted to
Tell me I’m not dreaming
Oh oh I’m out of my depth
Struggling to breathe gotta catch my breath
A little voice saying “Yes, yes, yes”
I can hear the sirens screaming

When you touch me, when you hold me
I don’t care I’m in too deep

You’re like a riptide
Dragging me away
Adrenaline kicking in my heartbeat thumping
Riptide underneath the waves
Hold on tight cos it’s the start of something
Gotta love this riptide

Nothing ever gonna feel so right
Finally found a little piece of paradise
It’s like I’m livin’ in a different life
Where the sun is always shining
See the shoreline fade from view
We’re treading water just me and you
There’s nothin’ else I’d rather do
Feels just like I’m flying

Riptide washing me away
A force so strong that I just can’t fight it
Riptide love it when you say
Feels so good I never thought I’d find it

Can’t hear it can’t see it
Invisible but you believe
This power this feeling
Gotta love the way it’s taking over me
I feel it I need it
Impossible to let it be
You know that I want it
You’re the only one who’s gonna set me free

A Place Called You

Long ago and far away
You took me to a place I can’t forget
You’re my knight in shining armour
I guess you just don’t realise it yet

I’ve been cooped up in a tower
For hours and hours
The wrong guys all try to rescue me
Why kiss another frog
You’re the only one I want
It’s obvious, why can’t you see?
Won’t you take me to the place we used to meet?

It’s sunny and funny
And quirky and oh oh oh
A little piece of heaven
And I so wanna go
I know my happy ending
But you don’t have a clue
Cos where I want to be is a place
A place called you

Long ago and far away
In a land of make believe
I saw a perfect happy ending
So come on back and set me free

Take me to the place where the stars come out
Just me and you is what it’s all about
Take me to the place where we used to go
Yeah you know Romeo you were so oh oh…

How much I long to see your face
Cos no one ever can replace
A place called you

(Teach Me to Breathe) Underwater

Thought I’d found what I wanted
That I’d finally come up for air
But I’m gasping up here on the surface
Choking to death in this nightmare

It’s three in the morning
I shouldn’t have called
But hold me and catch my fall

Take me away – underwater
Escape from the waves and the rain
Dive underneath – underwater
If I believe can you teach me to breathe?
Teach me to breathe once again – underwater

Hold me, heal me stop the bleeding
Set me free from the pull of the tide
Only you can stop me from corroding
I’m losing the battle tonight

I know you can hear me I know you’re alone
So don’t leave me out in the cold

Sunflower

Like a sea of gold outside my garden gate
Behind that house that I grew up in,
our beautiful escape
We’d talk for hours and hours
and look up at the sky
I had all the questions,
but you could tell me why

You told me
Sunflowers stare at the sun
And how the Milky Way
Is the galaxy called home
I thought the moon was a crescent
You showed me I was wrong
But where should this sunflower stare
Now that you’re gone?

Autumn rain began to wash away the dust
I never thought that gold could turn to rust
One morning they were gone and I could cry
Cos you’re not here to tell me why

Give a Little Bit

D’you ever wonder how to make a change
How to make this world a happier place?
Something simple maybe you could do
A way to put a smile on someone’s face

You can make a difference
Let the sunshine through
It won’t be no coincidence
If you end up smiling too

Why don’t you
Give a little bit
A little bit of what you got
Cos a whole lot of little
Soon becomes a lot
Give a little bit
Always good to spread the love
Cos that real good feeling
It ain’t ever gonna stop

There’s a million problems in the world
That seem to keep on playin’ on your mind
Why don’t we start today and change it all
Let’s do it one step at a time

Love’s the one thing in the world
That’s gonna keep us strong
So if you’ve got enough to share
Won’t you pass a little on

And I promise that the feeling
It ain’t ever gonna stop

Once

D’you ever stop and wonder why
It’s so damn hard finding Mr Right?
I swear it’s just a Disney lie:
“You only need to find love once”

Here’s the thing, guys are all the same
They love you then they leave you like it’s just a game
Did no one tell them that old sayin’…
“You only need to find love once”

Imagine my reaction
When you walked in the room

Once I’d found you
Was never gonna let you go
I didn’t hesitate
I couldn’t wait
All the other guys just evaporated
Once I’d found you I couldn’t help but let it show
It must be love
Cause my heart thumps
And I’m so glad I waited for once

So many times I got it wrong
One summer thought I’d found the one
A couple of weeks and he was gone
“You only need to find love once”

I guess we all make mistakes
Hide the hurt when your heart breaks
But don’t forget when things aren’t great
“You only need to find love once”

All those times I’m walking home at night
I’m wondering who I’m really waiting for
Just one look at you and I swear I knew for sure
I knew for sure

Dreaming Trees

Once there was a forest of light
Where the darkness would shine golden bright
And there was no divide between the day and night
Or so a mother told her child

Once there was a wish that came true
Where I found my belief and gave it to you
And before love grew old it became something new
A wild eyed flower in the wild

Dreaming trees your face among the falling leaves
Dreaming trees your voice upon a gentle breeze
Your shadow on my memory
Dreaming trees
Dreaming trees

Paint the dust and colour the rain
Break your silence and tell me your pain
And if god knows the truth he’ll never explain
But there are answers in your smile

We walk these woods we lie in the grass
We talk about life while we watch it pass
Like a rose petal sailing down a silver stream
Past the chestnut tree where we used to dream
Dreaming trees

Dreaming trees another time another place
Dreaming trees you walk in beauty dressed in lace
Forever in a state of grace
Dreaming trees

This is For You

Anyone can watch the stars at night
And try to figure out what it all means
Anyone can shelter from the rain
And stumble on the person of their dreams
And I wish I could help you right now
And I wish I could help you to breathe

This is for you…

Anyone broken would welcome my smile
But you turn away like a ghost
Somebody said if you’re not smiling back
You’re the one that needs it the most

This is for you…

Party Girl

She plans her day around what she does at night
Works just enough to keep the money thing tight
Don’t take any gifts from any gentlemen callers
But she’s a good luck charm for some sky high rollers
Sky high rollers

She is first in line at the party door
And she’s first in line to go crazy on the dance floor
She’s first in line to turn the bad boys on
She’s first in line
But second to none

Party girl
It’s your life, but it’s her world
And she’ll break your heart, but you’ll love her still
Party girl
Yes she’s your first and last and only thrill
It’s your life, but it’s her world
Party girl

You wake her up in time for her to shower and dress
Still feeling rough she makes the downtown express

The bus rumbles to her destination
She’s been in this job since the day of creation
The day of creation

She’s the last one in and the first one gone
She won’t go home and head straight to her connection
She’s first in line to get her mojo on
She’s first in line
But second to none

Can’t hear her cry when the music’s loud
Don’t feel so alone when she’s in a crowd
Can’t stop moving until the final dance
She don’t want your pity just a little romance

What's She Got?

So great that you’re in love
But why d’you call me up at 2am?
To say it’s kinda tough
But she can’t stand all your friends

Funny how when we hang out
Stare all night at your phone
Oh stop, guess what
The guilt trip works and you gotta run home

What’s she got?
You said you wouldn’t change
What’s she got?
You know to her it’s just a game

What’s she got you can’t resist
She treats you so bad but you just can’t quit
You come runnin’ when her fingers snap
A guy like you deserves better than that
What’s she got you look so down
You never frown like that when I’m around
It’s true
All she’s got that I don’t have is you

How come you give so much
When she’s all take, take, take
And when she’s mad at you
My heart begins to break

What’s she got?
She’s just killing time
What’s she got?
Maybe one day you’ll be mine

A perfect life
A perfect smile
And perfect legs that go on for miles

A perfect house
A perfect car
And a second home
In the South of France
And all those clothes
With designer names
And shoes and bags it’s such a shame
But maybe I can understand it’s true
Why you think you love her like you do…

So that’s what she’s got you can’t resist…

Lazy

Never get the time for us anymore
Rushin’ around but what’s it all for?
Still together but we’re drifting apart
Wasn’t love meant to be easy?
And real life the hardest part?

So switch off your phone
Let’s spend a little time on our own…

I wanna get lazy
Lazy with you
Waste a little time
We can lose the afternoon

I miss you like crazy
So kick off your shoes
It’s amazing what lazy can do
When it’s me and you

How about today we cancel our plans?
You choose the music and I’ll run the bath
And I’ll light the scented candles the way we used to do
I forgot how much I love that song
No one gets me like you

Let’s take our time
Get back to how we used to unwind

Lazy like a Sunday morning
I don’t care who’s calling
I’m not picking up this time, no
Baby the hours that we’re wasting
Let’s keep the whole world waiting
I don’t think it’s such a crime

How to Write a Love Song

You were so complicated
And I thought maybe it was me all along
If you knew how much I hated
Every time you said:
“Hey when you gonna write me that love song?”

I guess I didn’t have the recipe
Until you left me
And took the best of me
And you walked out that door
But the ingredients I needed
You completed
When you cheated
And I still wanted more
You taught me how to write a love song

Words come first
But you need a little pain
So all the things you left unsaid
Won’t have been in vain
And tryin’ to find a melody
Is easy now you’re gone
Cos baby when you left me
You taught me how to write a love song
How to write a love song

I hope you get to hear this
And I hope that she’s listening too
And when she says “Weren’t you together?”
I wonder if you’ll ever tell her the truth?

You taught me how to lie awake at night
Wondering how to make it right
You taught me how to lie and say
“I’ll be fine, I’ll be okay”
You taught me how to turn things round
When every sign is facing down
But now I’m glad it all went wrong
Because you taught me how to write a love song
How to write a love song

Hey Summer!

If only I could stay here
By the pale blue sea
As the waves begin to whisper
I drift off to sleep

Autumn is calling
But tell him he can chill
Freeze frame
This moment
And make the time stand still

Hey summer don’t ever end
Hey summer let’s go round again
Hangin’ out at the beach
Singin’ songs in the sun
We got a party going on
So stay here forever
And we’ll play it again and again
Hey summer don’t ever end

We’re waiting for the sunset
Finding seashells on the beach
Summer never felt this right
So don’t slip out of reach

Don’t let the habit of a lifetime force you to leave
Stay a little longer I’m beggin’ you please
Feels so good sleepin’ in the sun
Layin’ in a hammock with my Ray-Bans on
Well I’m not ready for 9 to 5
With nothing but a phone jammed full of photos
Of a real good time

Hangin’ out at the beach
Singin’ songs in the sun
We had a party going on
So stay here forever
And we’ll play it again and again and again and again
