Track Name: New Home
One day he turned up to me,
Turned up without a home.
He'd struggled with his confidence,
Because he had been disowned.

He said he didn't need a friend
But I knew that he did.
He was looking old and frail
But he was only just a kid.

So we took him in and fed him up,
Tried to get him back on track.
He stayed with us for the weekend and
We never looked back.

He thanked us with affection,
He's a friend we can count on.
We've loved him since we met him,
We won't forget him when he's gone.
Track Name: Seven's My Lucky Number
I'll give you all the glory,
I'll buy you diamond rings.
I'll sing you to your sleep tonight,
I'll play on your heartstrings.

'Cause life isn't very long:
I don't want to live it wrong.

Seven times I've played this song,
Seven times I've played along,
Seven hours isn't very long
But seven's my lucky number.

I'll wake you up at sunrise,
I'll take you to the sea.
I'll entertain you baby,
If you say you love me.

'Cause life isn't very long:
I'm not going to live it wrong.

And seven times I've played this song,
Seven times I've played along,
Seven hours isn't very long
But seven's my lucky number.
Track Name: Over You
You said you don't need me no more.
You said I'd be back for sure
But I'm over you.

I waited to long to hear your answer,
You wasted your time my dear.
Now I'm over you.

They say there's no harm in being clear,
It's the only way problems disappear.
Don't drive uphill in your highest gear
And don't blame me.

They say you should never break a promise,
If there's only one thing I've learned from this,
It's that I was right to be clear and honest
So don't blame me.
Track Name: Last Leaf In Autumn
You can't go blaming me for things that you've done.
It's not my fault so don't use me as your excuse.
Late night, walking in the rain to take a breather.
If you don't have the time for me, I don't have the time for you.

But I won't hold a grudge; I'll take you back.
Let's get this old train back on it's track.
'Cause without you I'd be nothing at all,
Just the last leaf in autumn: waiting to fall.

Red wine pouring from the bottle to the glass now.
Your smile, more positive than what it was before.
We'll change inevitably, only for the better.
'Cause we feel a connection we'd be foolish to ignore.

I won't hold a grudge; I'll take you back.
Let's get this old train back on it's track.
'Cause without you I'd be nothing at all,
Just the last leaf in autumn: waiting to fall.
Track Name: The Future
Sit and watch the sky with me,
With the waves breaking by your feet.
And the light from your soul,
It's glowing bright and bold.
The light from your soul;
It's beauty, it's control to me.

I've been through this before, but on my own.
Although it's fun, it's more with you, I know.
We've made it through the tough times,
We've waded through the snow.
I'll treat you well, I'll hold you close.
And I won't let you go.

Turn around to see
The one you want to be.
'Cause you don't owe it to anyone
When you're next to me.

Sit and watch the moon with me.
Let's wonder what the future will be.
My mind rearranged
The things I thought strange.
We'll learn to cope, we'll be alright.
Let's watch this world tonight.
Track Name: On My Own
See now, I don't want to be on my own again.
The tides have turned, my lesson learnt;
I tried to run but my feet got burnt.
We've had a rough start, we've seen it all;
We won't give up and we won't fall.

See now, I don't want to be on my own again.
My head is clear, I won't disappear;
I'm ready to face this without fear.
The time is right, we won't fight;
We're going to set off and take flight.
