Track Name: Let The Love Shine Through
And I feel, it's all too real,
To be nothing.
Like everyone, It's never fun,
When you're suffering.
But I will care, and I'll be there,
If you need someone.
What can I say ?, thinking everyday,
Am I no-one ?

(CHORUS) And I will be your sun.
And let the love shine through.
Let the love shine through.
All over you.

It's been said before, and if I'm a bore,
Please stop me.
Like everyone, all that I have done,
Was I thinking ?
It's all too much, and I'm out of touch,
With my feelings.
And I don't know, how much to show,
That I'm hurting.

(CHORUS)
... When God smiles, he smiles on you.
And the love shines through.
The love shine through.
All over you.
Track Name: Something I Idolise
I've too many things to say to you.
And child, everything that you do.
Leaves me hungry.

(CHORUS) And all I want to do.
Is get inside of you.

When I can see you through too many eyes.
I cannot have something I idolise.
Can I ?
Track Name: The Girl With Eyes Like You
And when she looks my way
I sometimes think it's you.
She's the girl with eyes like you.
You know she's got your eyes
The same shade of blue.
She's the girl with eyes like you.

And when I think I'm fine
Something reminds me of you
(I never want it to)
It's just the way my mind is playing tricks on me
(You appear in all I see)
With everyone I meet I have to compare them to you.
(They're never quite the same it's true)
It's just the little things she says,& the things we do.
(Something in her that's you).

repeat CHORUS.
Track Name: Final
Can't think what to say now.
When it's all been said before.
And I have no feelings.
I think I'm past caring.
Can't see any hope now.
Don't know if I did before.
And I have no feelings.
I think I'm past caring.

And closer to me now.
Much closer than before.
So longing for sleep now.
Can't think why I'm caring.
And hard to believe now.
Why did you look so good ?
And here comes that feeling.
Can't think why I'm caring.

This is no fun anymore.
Track Name: Nakedly
Why do I feel so inept ?
Unable to talk to you,
To sleep, it's you.
My jealousy - it's for me.
How can you smile, with him ?
Why do you smile ?

You're just so much.
Almost divine.
I don't deserve you, what am I ?
What am I ?
Impossible - that's what I am.
But what I can, I would
If I could.

If I said this song's for you.
Would that do ? For you ?
Would that do ?
And, I can't say it any other way.
So here I am, it's me.
Nakedly.

So here I am, it's me.
Nakedly.
Track Name: Pretty Clementine
"Excuse me, could you please tell me the time ?"
I think that I've already heard that line.
Don't let cliches pass from lips of mine.
From lips of yours, but not from mine.
That's what she said, Clementine
You're so beautiful Clementine.
So pretty, really !

Perhaps we could talk for a little time.
I'd like to know something, if you don't mind.
You'll never know the things in me you'll find.
I catch your eye, and you catch mine.
It sends a shiver down my spine.
Anticipation's so divine !
Oh pretty, really. Pretty to me.
See the way she looks at me !.

You talk to me of boyfriends where you've been.
"Oh really ?, do you think that I'm too thin ?"
You know I think I'd like to wear your skin.
I like your eyes, I like your skin
You look at me, you'll see within
Don't want to know what I could have been
So pretty, pretty. Pretty to me.
Do you think she laughs at me ?

You're a beautiful friend of mine.
You're a pretty clementine.

So arrogance is a fault of mine ?
I cannot change, but I can try.
Oh please, don't give me that sigh.
Oh no, don't let me hear you sigh.
No, don't let me hear you sigh.
Oh.. it's not love.
Track Name: A Stupid Thought
I chase her.
I always do.
But, she's above me.
Well, leave it.
I try to.
But, she's lovely.

Oh, worthless, useless boy.
What were you thinking ?
Sorry, a stupid thought.
Shall we leave it ?

I heard that.
What can I say ?
Hell, I'm no angel.
She's worth that.
What can I do ?
Yeah, that's the danger.

Oh, worthless, useless boy.
What were you thinking ?
Sorry, a stupid thought.
Shall we leave it ?
Track Name: Sacred
Open your mouth so I can see.
Nothing's sacred next to me.
I'm making lies, not history.
When nothing's sacred next to me.
Track Name: Favourites
And your hollow words always interest me.
And the way you talk it's a shame to see.
I don't know what's going on in your head.
But, I think some things just have to be said.

I guess I got taken in by you.
I know it's how all the others do.
I watched you perform time before time,
And I still don't know why you cast me that line.

(CHORUS)
I want to watch it all come down.
I'd like to see you turn it round.
And when you do, I hear you say.
"I'm not your favourite, now"

When you dress me up parade my pride.
Then turn your back with patent lies.
My sympathy has changed sides now.
And are you taking all this down ?

Oh, not another sleepless night.
It's not the heat to blame tonight.
My mind's alive, bitter & sharp.
How can I know so much but be in the dark ?

REPEAT CHORUS.
Track Name: Your Truth, My Truth
We learn to tell the truth.
Well it's the least we can do.
It's the beginning of the end of it all.
And how much can I do ?
For beautiful you.
If I begin then it's the end of it all.

And here I am with the truth.
Well it's the least I can do.
When there's no point to pretend anymore.
And take what you see.
But no longer from me.
There's no way I could hurt you at all.

(solo)
I couldn't hurt you at all.
Track Name: The Best Temptation
Do you see what I see ?
Well, it doesn't bother me.
Well, that's what I pretend.
My story to the end.
I know I said I knew.
But, that's just a lie for you.
And I wish that I could say,
That I just turned away.

(CHORUS)
And God, she's the best temptation.
I know.

I had the strangest dream.
Well, that's what it seemed to be.
And, I wish that I could care.
But, nothing remains there.
I know you thought I knew.
Well, that's just being you.
And, I wish that I could say.
But, you don't listen anyway.

(CHORUS)

And she's a..
Big talking, sleepwalking, jivetalking,
Temptation I know.
Lung smoking, bad joking, tongue choking,
Temptation I know.
Back stabbing, cool dragging, whip cracking,
Some girl I know.
Sleaze stalking, jive talking, hip walking,
Temptation I know.
Lip pouting, eye touting, no doubting,
She's the girl I'd like to know.
Temptation.
Track Name: Sell Out
I think it's time,
Time I got myself together.
Well, that's fine.
Easier said than done,
Still it has to be said the same.
But this is all that ever mattered.
This is all that ever mattered.

The things I said.
Well recently I just don't know how much was me.
I've no regrets.
If I had to do the same, I shut my eyes & dream.
And this is all that ever mattered.
This is all that ever mattered.

(solo)

I have no cares.
I have no interest in anything at all.
I have no faith.
I have no faith in me, or what I do at all.
Still this is all that ever mattered.
And I am all that never mattered.
Track Name: Rosy Honey
Rosy Honey.
Rosy Honey.
She curls up in a little ball
She looks so sweet, she looks so small
And I love her.

Rosy Honey.
Rosy Honey.
I love her like a Lolita
I'm lost for words when I meet her
She's so perfect.

(CHORUS) And I la ..la.. love her.

Rosy Honey.
Rosy Honey.
She puts her finger to her lips
The lips that I so want to kiss
And she giggles.

Rosy Honey.
Rosy Honey.
Temptation's her favourite game
And Beautiful her middle name
And she knows it.

(CHORUS) to fade
Track Name: Drifting Into Sleep
The music pounds in my ears.
But I don't hear, but I don't hear.
Can't lift my weary head.
For what she said, for what she said.

I wish for sleep.
As she's drifting into me.
I think so deep.
And she's drifting into sleep.

Like tissue cried within.
My skin's too thin, my skin's too thin.
I close my head.
Dreams fall down dead, we all fall dead.
What I still feel.
She makes me ill, she makes me ill.
I close my head.
Dreams fall down dead, we all fall dead.

I wish for sleep.
As she's drifting into me.
I think so deep.
As we're drifting into sleep.
