Run 04:35
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?

Bonita 03:16
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

Bad Boy Bill 03:26
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

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

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

I See You 04:23
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

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

Falling Down 03:36
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

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
