Greener 02:43
I'm looking at myself to see the person I've been I'm looking at myself to check the state that I'm in I'm looking at my life to see the places I've been Where the grass is greener I'm looking at my life to see the choices I've made I'm looking at my life to see the fears and mistakes I'm looking for somewhere, where I'm no longer afraid Where the grass is greener

Don't Let Go 03:53
I can't find a way to reach your heart How can I get through? It always seems that we're so far apart It's so hard to get to you There's an emptiness I must confess I feel I've been left here on the starting blocks So please don't let go I fear I'll be left here on the starting blocks So please don't you go I must find a way to win your love To take a chance with someone true I'm looking for some way to win your trust What now have I got to prove? 'Cause loneliness is a second best I feel I've been left here on the starting blocks So please don't let go (don't let go) I fear I'll be left here on the starting blocks So please don't you go (please don't go)

Castaway 04:16
I don't want to live my life alone So what exactly am I doing here? I've spent so long walking along this shore And I don't want to be here anymore I watch the waves come rushing up to me So where exactly am I meant to be? It feels so far, a world away from home And I just want to leave It may seem strange That every night I pray for help When no one ever comes I don't want to live my life alone So what exactly am I doing here? By waiting for someone to rescue me Is this the way my life will always be? Well, it's been this way Still every night I pray for help As no one ever comes It may seem strange Still every night I pray for help Still no one ever comes

One day I'll look back in time And try to understand All that emptiness in this life And all those worries You'll never know How hard it was to let go Now that I am on my way There's no more holding back Seems I still have so much to say With no reservations 'Cause you never know What's ahead down this road So I'm changing my life There's no better time For your changing your life There's no better time There's no better time

Playgrounds 03:35
Children playing in the park Laughing and singing 'til it's dark They can't hide the joy they find I must be getting on We spent all our Summers 'up the park' No worries or cares for ourselves or the world We didn't know where life would go I must be getting on Going home Another life so long ago I remember when this place was ours Hold me now Children playing in the park Running and joking then home when it's dark They don't know how time will go I must be getting on Going home I must be getting on

Good For You 04:02
Someone told me I'm the one that you've been thinking of Don't be shy let's give ourselves some time to fall in love Summer goes by fast so why don't you give us a chance? And you're feeling fine I want to make you mine You know that I'll be good for you Together we'll be great so please don't hesitate You know that I'll be good for you Winter's gone and Spring here, it's time to celebrate All this time I've searched for love so please don't hibernate Summer goes too fast so don't you let this moment pass So if you're feeling fine and want to share your time You know that I'll be good for you I may just be the one you could be counting on You know that I'll be good for you Summer goes by fast so why don't you give us a chance? And you're feeling fine I want to make you mine You know that I'll be good for you I may just be the one you could be counting on You know that I'll be good for you You know that I'll be good for you

Closer 03:41
Her heart in a sling He's moved on to better things And now I feel closer to her She's moved from their home And lives on her own Somehow I feel closer to her And now I feel closer to her She told him it is the end Her trust may never mend I feel so much closer to her And who, who am I To praise or criticise? All I know is I'm closer to her I feel so much closer to her You're not to blame

Is there anymore left to say? Don't talk to me that way Though my eyes are open wide Don't look at me that way You used to love me But I'm not certain anymore You used to want me Am I not welcome anymore? With my arms still open wide You're pushing me away It's a love that feels denied Don't talk to me that way You used to love me But I'm not wanted anymore? You used to hold me Am I not perfect anymore? I've been looking over my shoulder all this time Through all this time But suddenly you got colder over night You used to love me But I'm not needed anymore You used to love me Am I not worth it anymore? Where do we go from here? If you don't want me to be near What do I do from now? If you don't love me anyhow

They say that pride comes before a fall I wouldn't doubt it I know that I acted like a fool I don't deny it I've been here before To a place where I'm sure I'm not returning She said that the life we've shared has changed Before revealing "I think that its time to re-arrange the way I'm feeling" I've been hurt before If I walk through that door I'm not returning I've been here before To a place where I'm sure I'm not returning I'm not returning

Forgotten 06:01
I wake up every morning cold You're no longer there to keep me warm By me, by me It's not easy to admit you've failed When another chance has been derailed Why me, why me? So do whatever you do, wherever you go Whatever your plans, don't forget me please Whatever your views, whatever my faults Whatever your stand, don't forget me You told me that we couldn't last Then you run into another's arms Why him, why him? You said you wanted to be free Though you promised me eternity Why lie, goodbye Go do whatever you do, whatever your thoughts Whatever you plans, don't forget me please Whatever your view, whatever my flaws Whatever your stance, don't forget me Don't forget me please

I Tried 04:39
Oh heaven knows I've tried but there's a part of you that's left behind And my thoughts of you will not subside completely Did you ever lose someone but there's a presence that hasn't gone? It's like a ghost of hopeless love Haunting me In time I will move on as long as I stay strong Been fooling everyone, even me One day I'll make a start to heal my wounded heart It's been so torn apart, you see However hard I've tried there's your voice that still resides In the delicate depths of my mind, calling me Did you ever have someone who you thought would be the one? It seemed like a minute and you were gone, confusing me In time I will move on as I long as I keep strong Been fooling everyone, even me Some day I'll make a start to mend my broken heart We've been so far apart, it seems However hard I've tried, there's a part of you that's left behind Oh heaven knows I've tried but there's a part of you that's left behind Haunting me

Beautiful things that make you feel good The scent of a flower that's come into bloom Wonderful days to fill you with hope The laughter of children floats over a breeze The first leaves of springtime burst forth from the trees They always remind me of you Beautiful things they make you feel good A chorus of voices soar up through the roof Wonderful friends who'll always stay true A Summer's day walking, a picnic at noon Dancing all night to a favourite tune They always remind me of you It always reminds me of you Sunlight in the morning that fills up a room A breath-taking landscape that comes into view A glorious sunset of red, pink and blue Will always remind me of you They always remind me of you It always reminds me of you

Waiting in the wings of life for my curtain call I might as well be in the North Pole waiting for a bus For someone to care for, someone to love Sitting on the edge of life trying not to fall I might as well be in a desert looking for a boat For someone who'll care too, someone who'll love I'm over it now Standing on the stage of life hoping for applause I might as well be in the ocean searching for a raft For someone to care for and someone to love I'm over it now
