Track Name: Take It Or Break It
Take it or Break it

I’m this big fat let down
Time and time and time again
How long have you waited
For me to make amends
Cos it’s really really time to stop with this
She loves me - she loves me not business
I’m ready now, I’m ready for you now
Call it on or call it off on off

(Here I am) I know you hate that you adore me
(Here I am) But when I text you don’t ignore me
(Here I am) Cos when your standing right before me
You seem blasé
Something has changed
You don’t meet my gaze
With the intensity you used to
Stop glancing away
Stuck for what to say
I’m tired of this game

If you’re gonna break my heart then break it
If you’re gonna take my heart then take it
Just don’t leave me standing on this high wire

See I’ve never been more unsure
I'll book those flights to Spain again
But you’re intent on staying
What the hell who for
It’s becoming really fairly obvious
This story's 'bout to take a major twist
I’m ready now
I’m ready for you now
Still you keep me hanging on and on and off
(Here I am) I know you say that you adore me
(Here I am) Those lines you speak aren’t really for me
(Here I am) Cos when you’re standing right before me
You seem blasé
Something has changed
Don’t meet my gaze
With the intensity you used to
Stop glancing away
Stuck for what to say
I’m tired of this game
If you’re gonna break my heart then break it
If you’re gonna take my heart then take it
Just don’t leave me standing on this high wire

Fifty-one years, nine months, four days
Is that how long I’ll have to wait
Fifty-one years, nine months, fours day
Is that how long I’ll have to pay
Track Name: Cry
Cry

I don’t see how you can be away from me
I go out I take you too I’m always with you
Hear a thundering crack when I’m stabbed in the back
So you bastards have cheated me
Left a wound with no scar oh how lucky you are
When your conscience is so free

I went off with no cares at all
Should have stopped after the first drunken fall
It only took one accident for you to go away
And I wish I could rewrite that night
Then maybe you would stay

I’m empty but I go on mechanically
I go out
I’m pretty blue
Thinking of you
How we won’t be united our love won’t be fighted for
I’ll grow old and die
And things like you come and yes things like you go
And all I can do is cry

Things like you come and yes things like you go
And all I can do is cry
Track Name: Not In Love
Not in Love

Summer winds are calling me on
I try to fight the feeling it's strong
I didn't think it would run this deep
I didn't think that I'd lose this much sleep

It's changing you, it's changing me
It's changed the way I see everything
I want to tell you that I'll always keep you near
I want to tell you that you've nothing to fear

I am not in love
I was never in love
I told you from the start
I could never fall in love
Take my picture down
I don't know why
I've had enough
I am not in love
I was never in love

I never meant to make you cry
I'm only trying to say good bye
I won't pretend I'm not sad when I am
I won't pretend that it's easy to see you again

I am not in love
I was never in love
I told you from the start
I could never fall in love
Take my picture down
I don't know why
I've had enough
I am not in love
I was never in love

When it comes to end
and you come to wake up feeling low
wake up and it's time to go

I am not in love
I was never in love
I told you from the start
I could never fall in love
Take my picture down
I don't know why
I've had enough
I am not in love
I was never in love
Track Name: Blame It All On Me
Blame it all on me

Well you can blame it all on me
And I will take it cos it’s just the way I am
In your songs you sing you lived for me
And I was cold and loveless in your hands

Well you can take the truth and twist it
And omit that many times you up and ran

You would go
I’d reel you back
You to and fro
A small hard crack that never mends
This was the beginning of the end

It’s simple but it’s true
Every time you’d go
Part of me would go too
Boo hoo

Well I can blame it all on you
But you don't take it cos it’s just the way you are
You’d stay out and flirt all night
We’d come home and fight and then I’d cry
And you would laugh in my face

But I will take the truth and twist it
And omit the time I kissed a man
You asked me for honesty
And I tried to deny it meant anything
But you wouldn’t believe
And I couldn’t leave

It’s simple but it’s true

Every time I lied
(You’d fall a little bit out of love with me)
Every time you left
(I’d fall a little bit out of love with you)
Every time
(You’d fall a little bit out of love with me)
Every time
(I’d fall a little bit out of love with you)

Every time, well you can blame it all on me

You can blame it all on me
Track Name: Oh Boy Prelude
Oh Boy Prelude

Turfed out
All locked up
I'm walking away
Ain't nothing to pray for
Ain't nothing to save.
Oh, A dimly lit sign
in the window of a sweet little dive
Say's keep on the sunny side of life
Yes keep on the sunny side of life.
Track Name: Oh Boy
Oh Boy

Said that we would be forever boy
Why’d you have to tell a lie
Make it through the stormy weather
BF 4 GF 4EVA never say goodbye
Well it’s a mystery to me
How something so seemingly infinite
Could become so finite overnight

(Oh boy) Is this what you really what
(Oh boy) Here comes that dreaded conversation
(Oh boy) I really wish that I could hate him
(Oh boy) I really wish that I could change his mind

Oh boy my boy
He don’t love me anymore
Oh boy my boy
He don’t love me anymore

Take your time
Take as long as you need
I’ll be fine, I’ll be fine, I’ll be fine
I’ll be at my mums’ if you need
Cyberspace can be cruel
Once again I’m a fool
Cos I’m the last to see
My facebook news feed
List your status as single

(Oh boy) Is this how you roll now
(Oh boy) Don’t you know how to use a phone ow
(Oh boy) Deactivate myspace, my facebook too
(Oh boy) This is the last hug I’ll be sending you

Oh boy my boy
He don’t love me anymore
Oh boy, my boy
He don’t love me anymore

Is this the way it’s gonna be
You end it all so cowardly
Don’t even have the decency
To even instant message me

Oh boy my boy
He don’t love me anymore
Oh boy my boy
He don’t love me anymore

Do you think when they invented bytes of information
That they could be so devastating
Straight to single, no “it’s complicated”
Honestly boy is that how you’re gonna play it

I’ll update my status too
So everyone knows I’m over you
What’s on your mind
I’m looking forward to my date tonight
Anji “Likes” this
What are you gonna wear
My pink silk dress, Fraser's gonna do my hair
Madeleine “Likes” this
Hey awesome call me later
We’ll be in town if you need someone to save ya

Sending you a hug
Sending you a quiz
Which movie villain does your ex compare with
Track Name: How Did We Fall Apart?
How did we fall apart

How did we fall apart
You and I so close at heart
Baby you were the one
Now my whole worlds upside down

You told me we were broken
But I didn't want to believe it
All the signs they were there out of focus
Only I wasn't ready to see them

How did we fall apart
You and I so close at heart
How did I not see
That you were falling out of love with me

Lay down your guns
Or fire them all at once
Hold onto me
(Say that you'll keep me close)
Let me know
(Am I still the on)
Nothing has changed
(You don't want me no more)
So why can't I let go

I fought so hard to make you mine
I couldn't keep the fire alive
I fought so hard to make you stay
But you were ashes blowing away

You told me you could not see
Any kind of future for you and me
You cried because it was hard
To admit we were through and
You weren't in love

Lay down your guns
Or fire them all at once
Hold onto me
(Say that you'll keep me close)
Let me know
(Am I still the one)
Nothing has changed
(So why can't I let go)
When you don't want me anymore

Was it all me am I the one to blame
If we were to go back how much could I change
Was it all me am I the one to blame
If we were to go back how much could I change
It's crazy how you just quit
Without trying to work at it
It's funny how you'd let go
And I was the last to know
Track Name: Closer
Closer

I sit and stare, I'm lonely here
There's not much else to do
But think about last time we talked
And dwell and swell and tear
I'm happy to know you're somewhere
It's bright and warm
But something in your voice it says
You might never be coming home
You might never be coming home, oh

I'm only acting how I'm meant to
I love and worry, I care
And as time passes this distance enlarges
I'm facing my greatest fear
I'm happy to know you're somewhere
It's bright and warm
But something in your voice it says
You might never be coming home
You might never be coming home, oh

I need to see you face to face again
I'm never sure you're gonna let me in
I hesitate each time I call you
I'm so terrified no-one will pick up

Love lost
When will I find
A place in your life
Like yours in mine
I wanna be closer
How can feel closer
I wanna feel

I'm happy to know you're somewhere
It's bright and warm
But something in your voice it says
You might never be coming home
You might never be coming home
Track Name: Upside Down
UPSIDE DOWN

You keep texting
Say you never meant to hurt me
Say you never meant to make me cry
You keep calling
Say you find it hard to tell me
Sleeping well because you stopped denying
Well if its true (Good for you)
I ain’t gonna scream and shout
It’s just a shame that you had to use me to work it out

So you keep running in a world that doesn’t know you
Sycophants afraid to tell you how crazy you’re being
Well line ‘em up quick
Fuck them all to try and fix it
Memories still haunt you in your new bed
Hoping nightmares turn to dreams in your head

Now that I’m gone (Do you wonder)
What you have done (To your lover)
Turned it around
My whole worlds upside down

It’s Upside down

Well I give up now
Paris baby pick me up now
Put my pieces in a cup now
And drink me down

So what if you love her
I ain't gonna scream and shout
It’s just a shame that you had to use me
To work it out

So what if you love her
I ain't gonna scream and shout
It’s just a shame that you had to screw me
To work it out

Upside down
Track Name: Same Ol' Same Ol'
Same Ol' Same Ol'

Either way I don't want to be reminded
You keep it coming and
You never really go

The tapes playing but I want to rewind it
Memory's got a grip on me and
It ain't ever letting go
No it ain't never letting go

It's the same ol' same ol'
Broken heart song every time
It's the same ol' same ol'
Broken tape stuck in rewind

Don't want to go, don't want to stay here
Don't want to spend another mutha fuckin' day here

Look how you left me
All alone
I'm on hold
You keep be hangin' on

It's the same ol' same ol'
Broken heart song every time
It's the same ol' same ol'
Broken tape stuck in rewind
I would rather be living as a ghost in your world, baby
Than live without you in mine

Hovering 'round your bedroom window
Feel so far away from you

It's the same ol' same ol'
Broken heart song every time
It's the same ol' same ol'
Broken tape stuck in rewind
I would rather be living as a ghost in your world, baby
Than live without you in mine
Track Name: On This Day
On this day

Howdy stranger, hows things
It’s been a long time between drinks

When we were young we mis-aligned
We weren’t to know how the rocky road would wind

Tread carefully now
This precious thing
On this day we start again

Be not weary, be not afraid
Think not on all the mess we made
See me new as I see you
Two islands adrift in a sea so blue

Tread carefully now
This precious thing
On this day we start again

Tread carefully now, this precious thing
On this day we start again
My companion, my best friend
On this day we start again
