Track Name: Over The Hills
Hey little darling
What would you say?
I've been around the world today

If you came with me
Where would we go?
Over the hills and far away

I just want to be safe
And tell you what I think
And I just want to hold you
And tell you everything

Hey little darling
How have you been?
I should have stayed in touch some more

If you get lonely
Come on with me
We'll pick up where we left before

I just want to be safe
And tell you what I think
And I just want to hold you
And tell you everything

You say 'hey'
Track Name: Jigsaw Puzzle
You came at just the right time
You always knew what to say
You took me in your arms and drove me away,
drove me away

We played ten pin bowling
You showed me how it's done
And when we couldnt sleep,
we used to count up the stars, one by one

We played jigsaw puzzles til the sun came up
Went to work, no sleep, my buttercup
Spent a night under stars in my worn out fleece
I'm a jigsaw puzzle you're my missing piece

Do you think we rushed things,
Maybe we went too fast
But I've moved on, and I'm over her
Thinking clear at last

So we can move forward
We can move on
And I really missed you
When you were gone

So let's play jigsaw puzzles til the sun comes up
Go to work, no sleep, my buttercup
Spend a night under stars in my worn out fleece
I'm a jigsaw puzzle you're my missing piece

You think it's wrong
To play a heart and live a life so strong
But when you know what you want - you know,
And when I look in your eyes, it's so
So come on back to me, we'll sail the seven seas
Yeah let's fix this all and be together,
Just you and me

So let's play jigsaw puzzles til the sun comes up
Go to work, no sleep, my buttercup
Spend a night under stars in my worn out fleece
I'm a jigsaw puzzle you're my missing piece
Track Name: September
Let's sit here for a while
Don't be afraid, just smile
And I'll be yours

Now, come September I won't be here
But don't worry baby, there's nothing to fear
I'll be back before you know it, back for you

Now stay right here, and you'll be fine
And when I'm back then you'll be mine

And stay with me, and you'll be free
We'll go down in history
Track Name: Little Bird
I saw a little bird yesterday
When you were miles and miles away
And at first I thought I'd heard it say your name

I saw a little bird yesterday
Up in the trees, along the stray
Do you miss me?

I saw a little bird dressed in blue
And it reminded me of you
It was beautiful and it was true

I saw a little bird dressed in blue
Unfurled its wings, and off it flew
For I miss you
Track Name: Start Again
I was closed, concentrating
Head in hand as I waited
Restless nights, summer days
In a haze

Step outside for a while
Passer by - force a smile
Separate mile by mile
In single file

If I find peace of mind
And if all the stars align
Can we leave this all behind
And start again?

If I learn to take my time
And if I care for what is mine
Can we leave this all behind
And start again?

Reached out when persuaded
As I start to feel jaded
Helping hand when it goes
I still don't know

Double dose - break the borders
In attempt to move forward
Feel relief and belief
If only brief

If I find peace of mind
And if all the stars align
Can we leave this all behind
And start again?

If I learn to take my time
And if I care for what is mine
Can we leave this all behind
And start again?

Restless nights, and endless days
Track Name: Give It A Go
We only met a few months back
Six weeks from christmas I remember that
So you said you'd like to see me again
And that made me a happy man

But I'm not as cool as I might seem
I still feel like I'm sleeping and it's all a dream
But now as things have started getting real
I wanna tell you just how I feel

I said I think we should give it a go
You're my leading lady and we'll steal the show
Yeah I think we should give it a go

Not long left til summer no,
The days are getting warmer and it's starting to show
Yeah we should get away, that's what i say
Somewhere sunny; a new place to stay

The future is ours to form
If we've made it this far well then we've weathered the storm
The end's in sight, I can see
We got together so well, and I hope you agree

Yeah I think we should give it a go
You're my leading lady and we'll steal the show
Yeah I think we should give it a go

I said I think we should give it a go
You're the only one I want, and you should know
Yeah I think we should give it a go
Track Name: Sleep Well, Good Night
So fall asleep
Rest your head on me
We left some time ago
We're still a long way from home

Same lights, same road
Same sights, off we go
Watch the stars as they pass by
Roll down the window and try
Feel the cold air and smile

So if you look down the line
I hope you find yourself and I
But if you see that it's not so
I will go, I will go

As the sun leaves the sky
We are left just you and I
Go on and smile, I'll hold you tight
You'll be safe with me
And sleep well, good night

So if you look down the line
I hope you find yourself and I
But if you see that it's not so
I will go, I will go
Track Name: All Summer
I've seen all of this once before
My memory tingles when I see the door
And I smile inside

I spent one long summer here when I was a boy
I've sat on that swing and I've played with that toy
I can still hear the joy

The sun shone all Summer
The rain didn't show
I fell in love with you but I didn't know
When it was over, when I came to
I knew I would never forget you

No worries or blame, I remember those days
Sit by the river and get lost in the maze
We'd get lost for days

The sun shone all Summer
The rain didn't show
I fell in love with you but I didn't know
When it was over, when I came to
I knew I would never forget you

The dust on the floor, the moth eaten clothes
The sun through the window makes a photo of you glow
The colours have faded, but youve stayed the same
I just hope that you never changed
Track Name: Something New
So if I don't see you today
Will this be the end of the line?
I know we've been busy, but it takes two to stay friends
Maybe I'll see it as a sign

We've been friends for years but maybe our time is up
We still talk everyday but maybe that's not enough
So if I've moved on to something new, so should you

I agree lately I've had it tough
The once blue skies have turned grey
But it's times like these, in my time of need,
I notice we've drifted away

We've been friends for years but maybe our time is up
We still talk everyday but maybe that's not enough
So now I've moved on to something new, so should you

So don't be afraid, for I will hear what you say
And i still think about you and I every day
If times had been different, we might be okay
But It's just how it goes, you can't always get your own way
So tell me tonight, is this wrong or it right
For I just won't give up without a fight

If I meet you again down the line
I hope to learn you're doing fine
That you kept your cool, and you finished school
And you realised just what makes you shine

We used to be friends, it seems that our time was up
We don't talk anymore, as that wasn't enough
So when I moved onto something new, and when you saw my point of view
When I moved into something new, I hope you did too
Track Name: Walk Away
Feelings can last for a while
But with pain comes a new day, a change for yourself
So don't shy away when you're blue
The tide always changes, let it wash over you

And just walk away

Keep your mind occupied, keep spirits high
Take the time to exercise, focus and try
It's fine to feel bitter but don't take it out on me,
This is your turn to change things, yours to be free

So just walk away

And watch for the signs,
Through the acres and vines
Leave the past behind with yesterday
We'll look to the future together as one, my dear
People get broken but heal given time
I'm feeling much better with you on my mind
Forget what she stole, you still complete my soul
My dear

So watch for the signs,
Through the acres and vines
Leave the past in the past,
You'll forget it so fast
I'm still on the mend so
See it through to the end with me

People get broken but heal over time
I'm feeling much better with you on my mind
Forget what she stole, you still complete my soul
My dear
