Track Name: Run
On this day, on this day
I fall down I go to bed
But I feel how I feel
Like I bruised my head

Now I know that you’re trying
Baby don’t lie, don’t lie

Run Run Run
Run Run Run Run

As fast as you can

Sometimes I cry when I speak out your name
Sometimes I stand out in the rain
Although I know you’re doin the same
And I know that soon I’ll see you again

See the blue sky turn to black
How I wish that you could see me now
What’s the point you say as you turn your back?
In my mind in my mind
I know our love wont die

Run run run
Run Run Run Run

As fast as you can

Sometimes I cry when I speak out your name
Sometimes I stand out in the rain
Although I know you’re doin the same
And I know that soon I’ll see you again

Cant help it if I try, God knows the paths are known to fly
What’s done is just keeps goin on, What more I cannot do
To make me fall in love with you?
Track Name: Bonita
Well I never know that you were gonna runaround and hurt me so
I never knew that you were gonna make me feel so blue
And I never knew that I was ever gonna fall in love with you
I was only ever hopin. I was only ever hopin
You would love me too

Oh I dream California where all your troubles fade away
Never been to California, and I’m thinking I should get me there someday

If I really knew you would try your best to love no one but me
And if I really knew that you would try to make me feel complete
And I really knew that I would never be the only one to believe
Cos I was only ever hopin,, I was only ever hopin I could make you see

That I dream California where all your troubles fade away
Never been to California, and I’m thinking I should get me there someday

What’s a girl to do – when she don’t love no one but you
California here I come
What’s a girl to say when you’re makin her feel this way?

La La Verse

Oh I dream California where all your troubles fade away
Never been to California, and I’m thinking I should get me , thinking I should get me
Thinkin I should get me there someday
Track Name: Bad Boy Bill
Bad Boy Billy from Brixham
To some just Bad Boy Bill
Passed away last Christmas Eve
Too young to make a will

Some saw him up in Berry Head
And down in Old Fish Quay
But no one thought to ask him in
To stay on Christmas Day

Bad Boy Bill, Bad Boy Billy

His Mother was a drinker
She washed her life away
Mornings in the Rising Sun
She found a way to pay

But Billy’s little sister
She didn’t fare so well
She Flew off like a seagull
At the sound of Seven Bells

Bad Boy Bill, Bad Boy Billy

Some say he used to sleep in Fishcombe Cove
Lying on the shingle with the cliffs to call his home
Lighting fires and singing in the wind
Hoping that his sister would fly home to him

Bad Boy Bill

Bad Boy Billy form Brixham
Made carvings out of wood
He sold a few around the town
Folk gave him what they could

And when the fires inside his mind
Began to take control
He thought he’d fly into the night
To find his sisters soul

He leaped into the night at Fischombe Cove
Landing on the shingle with the cliffs to call his home
Some people saw a fire and heard singing in the wind
They say they saw a seagull fly, heard a girls lonely cry
And saw a spirit rise up in the sky
Track Name: Keep Britain Tidy
Tidy semi on your tidy street
Tidy flowerbed on your lawn so neat
Driving through this never - never lego land
Don’t stop for me no don’t you lend a hand

Managed through some bad times
Don’t need your insecurities
Now I’m living through some good times
So please keep Britain tidy

Tidy bankers and their tidy bonds
Like the tidy Generals and their tidy cluster bombs
We are living for today – today is all we got
Gonna mess this whole thing up the tidy rot

Managed through some bad times
Don’t need your insecurities
Now I’m living through some good times
So please keep Britain tidy
Hey well I’m livin’ through some good times
Just seems to happen when you’re living day to day
Don’t care much for the bad times
Doesn’t mean they wont go away

Generals, Bankers bunch of wankers – throw them away
Economies and student fees – throw them away
Phoney Tony’ Berlusconi – Throw them away
Suntan fakers tabloid papers – throw them away.

Well I’m living through some good times
So please keep Britain tidy
Hey well I’m livin through some good times
Just seems to happen when you’re living day to day
Don’t care much for the bad times
Doesn’t mean they wont go away – hey x2
Track Name: Everybody Loves a Lover
Everybody loves a lover
I'm a lover, everybody loves me
Anyhow, that's how I feel
Wow, I feel just like a Pollyanna

I should worry, not for nothin'
Everybody loves me, yes they do
And I love everybody
Since I fell in love with you

Who's the most popular personality?
I can't help thinkin' it's no one else but me
Gee, I feel just about ten feet tall, havin' a ball
Guess ya might call me a Pollyanna

Everybody loves a lover
Track Name: Tried Too Much
The Big Blue’s my favourite place
A place I always go to be at home
The sea breeze is a warm embrace
Reminding me I never feel the cold

And it sends my mind reeling
And then I can’t help believing
That a broken heart just needs some time to mend

When the time comes along
I know I’ll be strong
And trust myself to find a better man

I can’t find the words to explain
I need help to reach out again

I wanna love you, I just wanna be there, to stay by your side and show how much I care,
Do you remember the way that we were where when nobody cared if we slipped in the dirt?

I just tried too much to make it work
I just tried too much to make it work


Love that’s so hard
That’s been shut in the dark
Never knowing who’ll bring it back to life

For the moment it will stay
All alone in the shade
Till the right person’s effort wins the try

I can’t find the words to explain
I need help to reach out again

I wanna love you, I just wanna be there, to stay by your side and show how much I care,
Do you remember the way that we were where when nobody cared if we slipped in the dirt?

I just tried too much to make it work
I just tried too much to make it work
Track Name: I See You
Bobby’s got a big voice with no capability
Trading on his good looks and his likeability
Thinks he’s gonna blag it it with a big sob story
Head off in the sunset – TV Glory

I see you,
I see you

Cindy’s got the trash look with loads of personality
Walks in with her kids and no grip on reality
She thinks she’s gonna blag it with a big sob story
Leave the kid behind – TV Glory

I see you
I see you

Now I’m gonna sing it loud
I’ll be standing out from the crowd
Nothings gonna bring me down
Cos nothing’s gonna stop me now
Now you’re gonna see who’s in charge
I guess that I’ll be living it large
No ones gonna bring me down
Cos nothing’s gonna stop me now.

Vincent looks like Elvis only more contemporary
Singin ‘in the ghetto’ straight from 1970
Thinks he’ll get a big house with at least four storeys
Head off in the sunset - TV Glory

I see you,
I see you

Pammy and her sisters have a brand new strategy
Just forget the words and then forget the melody
Deamin of a big house with at least four storeys
Head of f in the sunset – TV Glory

I see you
I see you

Chorus
Track Name: Onside
Onside, so glad you’re on onside
So sorry that I lied – hope sorry’s enough

Creeps in, gets under my skin,
Not letting any body else in except you
Only you, only you
Only you

Hold you, feel you, show you what am I to say?
Gotta tell you baby I ain’t going away
Hold you, feel you, show you what am I to say
Gotta tell you baby, I ain’t goin away

Please forgive me

Onside, so glad you’re onside
So sorry that I lied – hope sorry’s enough

Hold you, feel you, show you what am I to say?
Gotta tell you baby I ain’t going away
Hold you, feel you, show you what am I to say
Gotta tell you baby, I ain’t goin away

Please forgive me we don’t need no one
Don’t need no one, Don’t need no one
Don’t need no one
Track Name: Green Light
Tryin to realize I’ll figure it some day
Cross thru the traffic light I think I tunred the wrong way
But you know how to make me smile
And I know now it’s gonna be a while before I
Oh I yeah I change my mind

Shoulda waited for the Green Light
I know that here I’m supposed to turn right
But now what is gonna happen here,
they said someone will make it clear before I
Oh I, yeah I change my mind

And now I, I know I’ll find where I’m going
But what’s a good way of knowing
Close my eyes to be on my own
Yeah I, I should have seen this all coming
Seein’ how things were movin’
Close my eyes to be on my own, on my own

Wait for the warning sign to guide me thru my life
Try not to break up wait till the time is right
I can’t tell what will happen here
Sometimes I just wanna disappear
But now I,
Oh I yeah I will change my mind

And now I, I know I’ll find where I’m going
But what’s a good way of knowing
Close my eyes to be on my own
Yeah I, I should have seen this all coming
Seein’ how things were movin’
Close my eyes to be on my own, on my own
Track Name: Have a Nice Life
I've been worrying whilst you've been scurrying.
Laying out your love traps - you dirty little love rat
You said I think too much and most of that is out to lunch
You say there's nothing wrong but I know what's been goin on

Have a nice life, close the door while you are leaving.
Have a nice life, I'm done with your deceiving

You've been convincing running round and rinsing.
Laying out your love traps - you dirty little love rat
You had a cunning plan, tell me you were with your nan
Fly off with your biggest fan to get yourself a sun tan


Have a nice life, close the door while you are leaving.
Have a nice life, I'm done with your deceiving

Sittin on the runway you must have had a fun day
Thinkin up the lies to tell while fastening your seatbelt
Flyin with your fancy girl leave behind your dreary world
Livin life in large amounts - cos that's what really counts

Have a nice life, close the door while you are leaving.
Have a nice life, I'm done with your deceiving
Track Name: Orange Van
Oh feel it comin
Oh feel it coming for my head
Reachin out to take me,
Reachin out to take me like they said

Oh they said
They said that you would come for me and I would find the will to carry on
I never did believe them more and more I fee
l it comin on
Oh so strong
Whoo hoo
Whoo hoo
Remember when we lay arm in arm in the Orange Van
People stumbling by us heads held low down in a can
We were slipping down the only place we could park was on a hill
I remember thinking
This just could be
This just could be yeah
Now I see you comin

drowning me and flooding through my soul
When its time for me to open up my mind and leave the safety of the loneliness where I once was
Now I’m gone
Whoo hoo
Whoo hoo
Remember when we lay arm in arm in the Orange Van
People stumbling by us heads held low down in a can
We were slipping down the only place we could park was on a hill
I remember thinking
This just could be
This just could be yeah
This just could be.......yeah
Track Name: Falling Down
Wont you try to let me speak
Wont you try and let me say to you
I love you

Don’t go making up your mind
Before you’ve given me the time
That’s just a little out of line

Stop for a second
Open your eyes
Here I am never gonna leave your side
Your side

Lyin awake and I hear you breathin
Wishin I knew just what you’re feeling now
Oh now
Hopin that you would just let me say it
Tryin to make you see I’m fallin down
And I don’t wanna fall down

When the time has come to talk
Wont you stay with me lets take a walk
Then I said I love you

Wait here a minute
Got a nice surprise
Wanna let you know
Never gonna leave your side
Your side

Lyin awake and I hear you breathin
Wishin I knew just what you’re feeling now
Oh now
Hopin that you would just let me say it
Tryin to make you see I’m fallin down
And I don’t wanna fall down
Track Name: I Was Only 17
I’ve been lost and found but I was around
I was alive in your heart
The time was so wrong, the feeling so strong
I played you my song

I was only 17 – you were old and I was keen
But I could always see it in your eyes
But you reached out and touched me so
Should I stay or should I go

I had to read the writing on the wall –
it said, it said, it said

I need your devotion,
I need your emotion

I was only 17 – you were old and I was keen
But I could always see it in your eyes
But you reached out and touched me so
Should I stay or should I go

I had to read the writing on the wall –
it said, it said, it said

I need your devotion,
I need your emotion

Oh say play for me now
Oh please just do it for me now
Just tell me when
You’re gonna make it there somehow
Time moves along don’t need to catch it now

I was only 17 – you were old and I was keen
But I could always see it in your eyes
But you reached out and touched me so
Should I stay or should I go

I had to read the writing on the wall –
it said, it said, it said

I need your devotion,
I need your emotion
Track Name: Taxi With You
I wanna do something a little crazy in a taxi with you
I wanna do something a little wild after dinner for two

Oh it’s in the magic and the buzz of city crowds
Its in the rumble of the music playing loud – and it’s alright

I get excited at the thought of being stupid in a taxi with you
I’d be arrested for the things that Id be thinking after coffee is through

Oh it’s in the magic and the buzz of city crowds
Its in the rumble of the music playing loud – and it’s alright

I’m in a taxi with you ooh ooh
Yeah I’m in a taxi with you ooh ooh
Taxi with you ooh ooh
I’m in a taxi with you

Oh it’s in the magic and the buzz of city crowds
Its in the rumble of the music playing loud – and it’s alright

I wanna do something a little crazy in a taxi with you
It’s as good a place as any like the station or the park or the zoo

Oh it’s in the magic and the buzz of city crowds
Its in the rumble of the music playing loud – and it’s alright

I’m in a taxi with you ooh ooh
Yeah I’m in a taxi with you ooh ooh
Oh I’m Taxi with you ooh ooh
I’m in a taxi with you

I’m in a taxi with you ooh ooh

Track Name: Ultra Violet Code
I imagine a world where I can never get old
Turn silver into a lifeline
I can buy it black and I can wear it in gold
Every cloud has a platinum outline

I imagine a world full of fruit machines
Turning copper into laughter
I fight my way out of a losing hand
And live happily ever after

I use the Ultra Violet Code
I use the Ultra Violet Code

Trade your money for your life
The colour of the light is gonna fix you

Trade your money for your life
The colour of the light is gonna fix you x2


I imagine a game in which I never can lose
Turn my chips in for strangers
I can play with fire and I can sing it in blues
Pretend I like the danger

I imagine a life in which I never can die
Forever met my elixir
I can spend on dreaming and I never run dry
Whatever it takes to fix ya

I use the Ultra Violet Code
I use the Ultra Violet Code

Trade your money for your life
The colour of the light is gonna fix you

Trade your money for your life
The colour of the light is gonna fix you x2
