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'

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

September 02:57
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

Little Bird 03:02
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

Start Again 03:49
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

Give It A Go 03:32
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

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

All Summer 03:36
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

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

Walk Away 04:05
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
