Track Name: Chew It
LIFE’S LIKE APRIL
IT CAN’T DECIDE
YOU CAN’T CONTROL IT LIKE THE THOUGHTS
IN YOUR MIND

AND YOU CAN’T STOP TIME
LIFE’S A RUN-ON LINE

LIFE’S A LOVER
IT BITES AND KISSES
IT CHEATS ON YOU
LIKE YOU’RE ITS MISTRESS

WHEN FAITH RUNS THROUGH YOUR HANDS
AND LIFE’S NO MERRY DANCE

DON’T YOU CHEW IT OVER AND OVER
DON’T YOU CHEW IT OVER AND OVER

YOUR HEAD IS A KILLER
IT NUMBS YOUR BELLY
BUT YOUR HEART IS A FIGHTER
AND BEATS YOUR SANITY

WHEN FEAR CHOKES YOUR NECK
WITH HANDS TIED BEHIND YOUR BACK

DON’T YOU CHEW IT OVER AND OVER
DON’T YOU CHEW IT OVER AND OVER

AS LONG AS THERE’S AIR IN YOUR LUNGS
AND YOUR HEART BEATS LIKE A DRUM
AS LONG AS YOUR LOVE STILL EXISTS
AND YOU CARRY HOPE IN YOUR CHEST
IF YOU STILL REMEMBER THE TRUTH,
AS LONG AS YOU WALK IN YOUR SHOES
YOU WILL GET BACK ON YOUR FEET
AS SOON AS YOUR WOUNDS STOP TO BLEED

DON’T YOU CHEW IT OVER AND OVER
DON’T YOU CHEW IT OVER AND OVER
DON’T YOU CHEW IT OVER AND OVER
DON’T YOU CHEW IT OVER AND OVER
Track Name: Let Her Go
OH SHE SAYS THAT IT'S OKAY
THINKS THAT SHE HAS A LION HEART
BUT THAT'S NOT THE TRUTH
OH SHAME ON YOU
YOU KNEW THAT FROM THE START
OH SHE PRETENDS THAT SHE DON'T MIND
YOU COULD BE FRIENDS ONCE IN A WHILE
BUT THAT'S NOT YOUR TRUTH
YOU WANT HER ANYTIME
TAKE A CHANCE
AND CHOSE THE WAY OF ROMANCE
JUST THIS ONCE
MY OH MY
IF YOU JUST WANNA TRY
YOU'VE GONE TOO FAR THIS TIME
YOU SHOULD LET HER GO
OH YOU KNOW YOU CAN'T DECIDE
OH SHE SHOULD KEEP HER POWDER DRY
SHE'S SO INTO YOU
OH SHAME ON YOU SHE GAVE YOU MANY SIGNS

THERE'S A VERY FINE LINE
BETWEEN HER HEART AND YOUR DESIGN
AND YOU CAN FEEL IT TOO
YOU CROSSED IT MANY TIMES
TAKE A CHANCE
AND CHOSE THE WAY OF ROMANCE
JUST THIS ONCE

MY OH MY
IF YOU JUST WANNA TRY
YOU'VE GONE TOO FAR THIS TIME
YOU SHOULD LET HER GO
MY LOVE
SHAKE YOUR FEAR OFF
OR MY LOVE
KNOCK YOUR HEAD OFF
MY OH MY
IF YOU JUST WANNA TRY
YOU'VE GONE TOO FAR THIS TIME
YOU SHOULD LET HER GO
Track Name: Julia
HE IS MY MAN
FOR YEARS MY MAN
THOUGH I’VE TRIED EVERYTHING, EVERYTHING I CAN
I LOST THIS MAN

HE’S LIKE THE BACK OF MY HAND
THE FAVOURITE PART OF MY MASTER PLAN
TOGETHER WE FACED UP TO DANGERS
BUT TIME WENT BY AND MADE US STRANGERS
AND HE IS NO LONGER MY MAN

AND WHEN I SIT IN A CAFÉ I KNOW HE’S ON HIS WAY TO YOU
AND WHILE I’M STANDING HERE ON STAGE I KNOW HE’S MAKING LOVE TO YOU

SO JULIA OH JULIA
NO IDEA WHO YOU ARE
BUT HAVE A HEART
AND DON’T MESS UP MY MAN
JULIA OH JULIA
HE’S ALONE AND I’M SO FAR
OH JULIA PLEASE CARE FOR MY MAN

BOY YOU’RE MY MAN
I LOVE YOU SO
AND THERE AIN’T NOTHING, NOTHING YOU COULD DO
I’LL LOVE YOU FOREVERMORE

WE HAD OUR CHANCE
BUT WE, WE WASTED IT ALL
HAVE WE DONE EVERYTHING, EVERYTHING WE CAN, NO
WE LOST OUR LOVE AND THIS GAME

AND WHILE I’M WALKING ALL ALONE, HE IS ON HIS WAY HOME - TO YOU
AND WHEN I CRY AT NIGHT AND WEEP, HE IS FALLING ASLEEP WITH YOU

SO JULIA OH JULIA
NO IDEA WHO YOU ARE
BUT HAVE A HEART
AND DON’T MESS UP MY MAN
JULIA OH JULIA
HE’S ALONE AND I’M SO FAR
OH JULIA PLEASE CARE FOR MY MAN

JULIA SWEAR YOU’LL DO YOUR BEST
GIVE HIM ALL YOUR LOVE AND GIVE HIM ALL YOU HAVE
JULIA IF NOT THEN GIVE HIM BACK
‘CAUSE HE’S ALL I EVER WANTED, ALL I EVER NEEDED

SO JULIA OH JULIA....
Track Name: Charlie Darling
OH CHARLIE DARLING
WAKE UP
PUT ON YOUR SHOES AND
GO FOR A WALK
'CAUSE YOU KNOW
THAT THERE'S SO MUCH
TO EXPLORE OUTSIDE
OH CHARLIE DARLING
DON'T HIDE FROM THE LIGHT

LEAVE THESE ROOMS OF DOUBTS
OPEN THEIR WINDOWS
AND BOOT THEM OUT
OH I KNOW ALL THE OTHER GUYS
ARE TOO BLIND TO SEE
NO THEY DON'T DESERVE YOUR INNER BEAUTY

GO DROWN THEIR HEARTS WITH LIGHT
CATCH THEIR EYES WITH YOUR SMILE

WHEN YOU DANCE AND YOU SING
CHARLIE DARLING
YOU REMIND ME OF SPRING
CHARLIE DARLING

OH CHARLIE HONEY
ARISE
GROW ABOVE THEIR HEADS AND
SWALLOW THEIR PRIDE
BE BRAVE AND EASY AND WALK SKY-HIGH
AND DO NOT TAKE A SINGLE LOOK BEHIND

GO DROWN THEIR HEARTS WITH YOUR LIGHT
CATCH THEIR EYES WITH YOUR SMILE

WHEN YOU DANCE AND YOU SING
CHARLIE DARLING
YOU REMIND ME OF SPRING
CHARLIE DARLING
ALL YOUR SKIN GLITTERS AND GLEAMS
CHARLIE DARLING
YOU'RE NOT SMALL
YOU'RE A QUEEN
Track Name: Headlock
NO MORE HOLDING HANDS
WHEN WE WALK TOGETHER
I LEFT YOU FOR SO LONG
BUT IT SEEMS LIKE I STICK TO YOU FOREVER

YOU DON’T PROVOKE MY APPETITE
YOU AND I MEAN
TWO WORLDS COLLIDE AND BURST
WE ARE OUR OXYGEN
BUT WE WILL DIE IF WE KEEP BREATHING EACH OTHER

AND I CAN’T STAND NO MORE,
BUT I HID THE KEY OF THE DOOR

I’M CAUGHT IN A HEADLOCK
I STEPPED INTO MY OWN TRAP
YOU GOT ME LIKE A DRUG
NO GREEN LIGHT AT THE END OF THE DOCK

NO MORE FAITH IN US
BUT WE’RE HAPPIER THAN EVER
WE’RE SICK OF ALL THE LIES
BUT WE STILL DON’T STOP EATING OFF EACH OTHER

YOU SAY YOU LOVE ME MORE EACH DAY
BUT OTHER GIRLS TAKE IT AWAY
I’M USED UP AND YOU’RE PLAYING ME ALONG
YOU SWEAR THAT I’M YOUR GIRL
BUT YOU’RE DENYING ME IN FRONT OF ALL THE OTHERS

AND I CAN’T STAND NO MORE
BUT I’VE BRICKED UP THE FRONT DOOR

I’M CAUGHT IN A HEADLOCK
I STEPPED INTO MY OWN TRAP
YOU GOT ME LIKE A DRUG
NO GREEN LIGHT AT THE END OF THE

YOU KEEP ME IN A CASE OF GLASS
I’M AT THE MERCY OF THE MASS
THERE’S NO WAY OUT I GUESS IT’S TRUE
NO I CAN’T GET OFF OF YOU

I’M CAUGHT IN A HEADLOCK
I STEPPED INTO MY OWN TRAP
I’M CAUGHT IN A HEADLOCK
I STEPPED INTO MY OWN TRAP
YOU GOT ME LIKE A DRUG
NO GREEN LIGHT AT THE END OF THE DOCK
Track Name: Mothers Heart
6 A.M. IN THE MORNING AND WE COULD READ OFF YOUR SKIN
THAT YOU HAD NO SLEEP
SO TENDERLY EACH DAY THAT YOU WOULD WAKE ME
WITH A CUP OF LUKEWARM TEA
I WAS TOO LATE TO DRINK

AND MARY SAID ‘NO YOU CAN’T GIVE BACK THE LOVE SHE GAVE TO YOU’
‘AND THAT’S NOT SO BAD, ‘CAUSE YOU CAN SHARE WHAT YOU HAD IF YOU FEEL THE SAME WAY, TOO’

‘CAUSE A MOTHER’S HEART
DOES NOT REDEMAND
IT SHEDS LOVE TILL THE END
AND DEVOTES ITSELF FROM THE START
‘CAUSE A MOTHER’S HEART
DOES NOT FALL APART

6 P.M. IN THE EVENING AND YOU WERE GETTING
YOURSELF READY FOR STAGE
THAT OLD SEQUIN DRESS THAT LIPSTICK IN CHERRY RED
COULDN’T TAKE MY EYES OFF YOU
WHEN YOU SANG THE WHOLE NIGHT THROUGH

AND MARY SAID ‘NO YOU CAN’T GIVE BACK THE LIFE SHE GAVE TO YOU’
‘AND THAT’S NOT SO BAD, ‘CAUSE YOU CAN SHARE WHAT YOU HAD IF YOU FEEL THE SAME WAY, TOO’

‘CAUSE A MOTHER’S HEART
DOES NOT REDEMAND
IT SHEDS LOVE TILL THE END
AND DEVOTES ITSELF FROM THE START
‘CAUSE A MOTHER’S HEART
DOES NOT FALL APART

NEITHER YOU AND NEITHER ME
WE BOTH DON’T PLAY IT PERFECTLY
WITH ALL YOUR LOVE, LAID DOWN YOUR LIFE
WITH NO REGRETS SPENT YOUR LAST DIME

‘CAUSE A MOTHER’S HEART
DOES NOT REDEMAND
IT SHEDS LOVE TILL THE END
AND DEVOTES ITSELF FROM THE START

‘CAUSE A MOTHER’S HEART
DOES NOT REDEMAND
IT SHEDS LOVE TILL THE END
AND DEVOTES ITSELF FROM THE START
‘CAUSE A MOTHER’S HEART
DOES NOT FALL APART
Track Name: Rose Coloured Glasses
TODAY YOU LEFT OUR HOME
WITHOUT A WORD FOR THE FIRST TIME
TODAY YOU CAME BACK HOME
WITHOUT ‘HELLO’ FOR THE FIRST TIME
YOU TOOK OFF YOUR JEANS
AND LAID RIGHT NEXT TO ME
LOOKED INTO MY EYES
FELL ASLEEP SECRETLY
WITHOUT ‘GOOD NIGHT’ FOR THE FIRST TIME
THEY SAY WHEN LOVE SUBSIDES
WE WILL GET BACK TO EVERYDAY LIFE
WE'LL GET UP SEPARATELY
AND WE WILL STOP TO LET OUR WORK SLIDE

I TURNED THESE WORDS OVER AND OVER IN MY MIND
BUT NO MATTER HOW HARD I TRY THEY DON’T ALIGN

I'M AFRAID TO LOSE OUR ALL DAY-SUNDAY BREAKFAST
I WON'T GIVE UP ON BOTH OF US
I WILL MAKE THIS FIREWORK AND FAINT LAST
I WON'T GIVE UP ON BOTH OF US
I WON'T TAKE OFF MY ROSE COLOURED GLASSES
I KNOW WE'RE ALWAYS LATE
AND THAT OUR FRIENDS
COME UP WITH NICKNAMES
WE'RE CHEESY HAND IN HAND
AND WE NEED YEARS TO GET OUT OF OUR BED
WHEN WE’RE MAKING LOVE I DON’T CARE ABOUT TIME
FORGET ALL YOUR DUTIES LET’S HAVE PILLOW FIGHTS

I'M AFRAID TO LOSE OUR ALL DAY-SUNDAY BREAKFAST
I WON'T GIVE UP ON BOTH OF US
I WILL MAKE THIS FIREWORK AND FAINT LAST
I WON'T GIVE UP ON BOTH OF US
I WON'T TAKE OFF MY ROSE COLOURED GLASSES
I WILL MAKE THIS FIREWORK AND FAINT LAST
I WON'T GIVE UP ON BOTH OF US
I WON'T TAKE OFF MY ROSE COLOURED GLASSES
Track Name: Changing of the Guards
I HAD DAYS WHERE I DID NOT KNOW HOW TO GET UP
I HAD MONSTERS AND THIEVES AND VULTURES AROUND
BUT I WAS LOVED ALL THE WAY

OH I FAILED AND I HELD MY HEART’S REIGNS MUCH TOO TIGHT
I WAS LOST AND I FELT THE DEVIL INSIDE
BUT I WAS LOVED ALL THE WAY

AND I FELL HEART FIRST ON THE GROUND WITH ALL MY LOVERS
BUT I HAD FAITH THERE’S SOMETHING LEFT
TO DISCOVER

FATHER HE IS THE ONE
NO STRANGER, A NEW SON YOU’VE WON
HE WON’T TAKE YOUR DAUGHTER
WE WON’T LOSE OUR HEARTS’ HOME
HE’S MY MAN AND THE DAD OF MY SON

I WAS WIDE-EYED BUT TOO BLIND
AND TRIPPED IN THE DUST
RAN MYSELF ‘GAINST THE WALL
SHOT MYSELF IN THE FOOT
BUT I FELT SAFE ALL THE WAY

AND I WAS SCARED TO LEAVE AND LOOK FOR ANOTHER
BUT YOU’RE MY ARC AND MY ROOTS
THERE COULDN’T BE NO OTHER

FATHER, HE IS THE ONE
NO STRANGER, A NEW SON YOU’VE WON
HE WON’T TAKE YOUR DAUGHTER
WE WON’T LOSE OUR HEARTS’ HOME

NO WE WON’T LOSE OUR HEARTS HOME

YOU DON’T NEED TO WORRY YOURSELF
‘CAUSE I KNOW THAT I’M SAFE IN HIS HANDS
REMEMBER WHO TAUGHT ME TO CHOOSE MY MATCHING MAN

FATHER, HE IS THE ONE
NO STRANGER, A NEW SON YOU’VE WON
HE WON’T TAKE YOUR DAUGHTER
WE WON’T LOSE OUR HEARTS’ HOME
HE’S MY MAN AND THE DAD OF MY SON
Track Name: All Is Well
SURE YOU COULD LOSE
SURE YOU COULD LOSE EVERYTHING
YOU’RE AFRAID OF WHAT TOMORROW WILL BRING
WHEN WILL SUMMER BURST IN
TURN HEART’S WINTER TO SPRING

WHERE IS MY TRUST
NOTHING LEFT TO BELIEVE IN
WHO IS FIXING THE MONEY THING
WHEN’S MY SEASON CHANGING
STOP MY MIND’S SHIVERING

THERE ARE THESE TIMES
WHEN MY HEART SKIPS A BEAT
AND I NEED A SIGN
THAT I STILL CAN BREATHE

AND A VOICE SAYS
‘ALL IS WELL’
AND MY HEART SCREAMS
‘ALL IS WELL, FEAR FARE WELL’

SURE I COULD START
SURE I COULD DO ANYTHING
BUT I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHERE TO BEGIN
THIS MESS IS CONFUSING
IT’S DOUBTS I’M DROWNING IN

AND THERE ARE THESE TIMES
WHEN MY HEART SKIPS A BEAT
AND I NEED A SIGN
THAT I STILL CAN BREATHE

AND A VOICE SAYS
‘ALL IS WELL’
AND MY HEART SCREAMS
‘ALL IS WELL’
KEEP HARM OUT OF REACH
KEEP IN MEMORIES ‘ALL IS WELL, FEAR FARE WELL’

HEAR MY HEART BEAT
I NEED THIS FEELING

AND A VOICE SAYS
‘ALL IS WELL’
AND MY HEART SCREAMS
‘ALL IS WELL, FEAR FARE WELL’
