Track Name: Rose
If your heart was a rose
I left it to wither and die,
Blowing in the wind,
Burning under the sky.
And if my garden overgrown,
Were the only thing there
'Cause you were to go,
It’d only be fair.
Smell it, breath it, feel it, need it,
Know it, love it, mean it

I’m feeling my way but I get it wrong
It's a walk in the park only for some
Got my head to the ground till I get home
Watch me cos I go round in circles

Though your petals have fallen
In my bleak december cold,
Still you persist,
With beauty untold.
Pure as grace in full bloom,
Without help it still grows;
And you hunger for my love,
I can’t believe I’ve got your rose
Track Name: Strawberry Blonde
Allow me to set the scene for how things went down
It was a dirty little rock dive over in camden town
I dip into the room and feel diluted by every guy
Beefing up oversized pie in the sky
Still, I’m propping up the bar trying to look cool
But really she’s the iceberg and I’m a titanic fool
Heaven forbid that we should actually speak
It’d be easier to part the red sea
Than to cross over to her for me

Strawberry Blonde, not your average girl
She lives on the road playing her rock and roll
She listens to Frank Zappa and all the best shred
I’ve got Strawberry blonde in my head

She’s alone at the bar, after her show ends
For every wincing moment I could shrink or make amends
Rummaging round inside trying to rouse an advance
But clearly I am flying by the seat of my pants
Seems like everyone else would just know what to say
When small talk is not my forte
And I can only muster cliché

Strawberry Blonde, not your average girl
She’ll make you want to stray out of your ordinary world
She’ll hook you in as I have been, I’m seeing red
I’ve got Strawberry blonde in my head

Strawberry blonde is my kind of girl
But I don’t even think that she noticed me at all
I could leave now, and she won’t even know
Track Name: Good Love
When did you mislay the cause
That took you there first of all?
Maybe the impulse that you need
Is not to flee, but let it be

Good love is hard to find when you won’t rest your mind
Greener grass is all you’ll find when you won’t rest your mind

You could run away, and she’ll become no more than your shadow,
Oh, but what if your wrong, you could free yourselves tonight

The world is ever full of sham
And trickery, don’t listen in
But if you’ve let it get to you
Don’t be fearful to uncover something true

Good love is hard to find when you won’t rest your mind
All of her is beautiful but you won’t rest your mind

I don’t want to run anymore
Track Name: Last Dance
There's nothing in the world that can prepare you for this
Far from the expectations of a kiss
Like the blink of an eye, we have to say goodbye
Now it's over, it's over.

Lets dance
Get lost
And if I had the chance
I'd do it all again

Numbering the days isn't good for your heart
And thinking anything else is proving quite an art
'Cause you feel like home, the only place I can go
Now it's over, it's over.

An ember only glows a few beautiful moments
But i'll keep the fires burning for you
I've been reluctant to be involved at all
But tumble me down the rapids for more
Track Name: Good Love (acoustic version)
When did you mislay the cause
That took you there first of all?
Maybe the impulse that you need
Is not to flee, but let it be

Good love is hard to find when you won’t rest your mind
Greener grass is all you’ll find when you won’t rest your mind

The world is ever full of sham
And trickery, don’t listen in
But if you’ve let it get to you
Don’t be fearful to uncover something true

Good love is hard to find when you won’t rest your mind
All of her is beautiful but you won’t rest your mind

You could run away, and she’ll become no more than your shadow,
Oh, but what if your wrong, you could free yourselves tonight

Good love is hard to find when you won’t rest your mind
All of her is beautiful but you won’t rest your mind
