Track Name: Forever Young
Sometimes
its like my inner child
is eating me alive from head to toe.
And she takes another bite
every time i think i'm growing up.

So who do i think that i'm fooling
i dont know what mature is
play along with a wink and a smile
Keep trying to hide behind make up
faking reading the paper
truth be told that i know deep inside

I'll never grow up
So instead i grow down
Back when life was carefree
and bask in the sun
We can make it
Life ain't complicated
When your heart is forever young
Its forever young

It's forever forever forever
It's forever forever forever

Its true
I'll always think its cool
To roll my windows down and crank the bass.
Though i know i shouldn't I cant help but laugh
When your wearing your serious face.

Inclined to find me daydreaming
dangling from a ceiling
whistling to this thing they call life
Its afternoon when i wake up
I never cook
and i swear too much
put my hand on my hear and say I

Will never grow up
So instead i grow down
Back when life was carefree
and bask in the sun
We can make it
Life ain't complicated
When your heart is forever young x2

It's forever forever forever
It's forever forever forever
Track Name: Only Human
Guess i'm back here again
I landed on my face
Mr failure my friend
clear another space
Make some room on the bench
for Mrs mistakes

Love just ran out the door
screaming in the rain
Said anxiety called
and she's on her way
Hope in drunk at the bar
With pity and shame

But everyone is welcome
cause i know i'm
Only Human
So i take the good with the bad
Im happy
to be nothing more than
Human
I just need a word with myself

Take the ups with the downs
you loose but then you win.
So when Fear comes around
i'll invite her in
She can go pound for pound
with blind arrogance,
She's so full of herself

I'll never close the door on jealousy
Cause i'm too tight with curiosity
and it shows character how you grow
and learn to deal with these things
See love prevails
so i say

Everyone is welcome
cause i know i'm
Only Human
So i take the good with the bad
Im happy
to be nothing more than
Human
I just need a word with myself

A word with myself

Because i'm vulnerable,
Insecure, crazy from head to toe
Warts and all i learned to love myself
No i wont break my back
To fit the mold
Pretending i'm invincible
Say i'm perfect whats the fun in that

Im Only Human
Im Only Human
Im Only Human

Cause everyone is welcome
cause i know i'm
Only Human
So i take the good with the bad
Im happy
to be nothing more than
Human
I just need a word with myself

Because i'm vulnerable,
Insecure, crazy from head to toe
Warts and all i learned to love myself
No i wont break my back
To fit the mold
Pretending i'm invincible
Say i'm perfect whats the fun in that

Im Only Human
Im Only Human
Im Only Human etc
Track Name: 9 to 5
Ooh's

I haven't got a clue
just what i'm gonna do with my life.
And i just can't be arsed
cause everything's a par in my eyes.
University's a joke
was fun but now i'm broke
though i can take you line for line
See i just want a laugh
but thats too much to ask
So get pissed to pass the time

Cause i never never ever
wanna get another 9 to 5
and i'm tired of people telling me the way to be and live my life
Find it hard to give a shit about things i don't really like
So as long as i'm sing and my hand has got a tin in i
dont care what i do with my life

Oh she never never ever knows
Oh she never never ever knows
Oh she never never ever knows

Its funny but its true
I dont know what to do with my life
So i thought i'd have a laugh
and go down to careers advice
I told em
I said i love to sing
put paper to my pen
they looked and gave a grin
told me to turn it in
said i need to find a real job so that i could be just like them
Condemned

Cause i never never ever
wanna get another 9 to 5
and i'm tired of people telling me the way to be and live my life
Find it hard to give a shit about things i don't really like
So as long as i'm sing and my hand has got a tin in i
dont care what i do because

I know i'm fine about
hustling not grafting
and i know i'll smile without
working my arse off x2

Cause i never never ever
wanna get another 9 to 5
and i'm tired of people telling me the way to be and live my life
Find it hard to give a shit about things i don't really like
So as long as i'm sing and my hand has got a tin in i
dont care what i do x2

with my life
Do with my life
Its my life x2
Track Name: Big Bad Wolf
You can't live in a fairytale miss
It's high time you grew up
They say
Daydreamer just get a grip it wont end in happy ever after
But I
I know its not their fault
The fact they lack imagination.
Forgive the cynical disbeliever
Its written in the star

And i'm sure not
afraid of the Big Bad Wolf
he can huff and puff
but he wont knock me dow knock me down
No he wont knock me down.

Pay the bills and take the kids to school
got to work for that house and that car
drink coffee like and adult should so it looks like your playing the part
but i
I know its not enough
to love and laugh a little then what
So young so whats the rush
just fear
I wanna see the world

Cause i'm sure not (Im not and i'll never be)
afraid of the Big Bad Wolf (Scared of a word he says)
he can huff and puff (huff and puff)
but he wont knock me dow knock me down
No he wont knock me down.

Cause if life was made for living
wont be frightened by the system
running scared cause they told you you cant
Only you make the rules to the game
you should be singing

i'm sure not
afraid of the Big Bad Wolf
he can huff and puff
but he wont knock me dow knock me down
No he wont knock me down x2

He wont knock me down
Track Name: 54321
Excuse me sir
I believe you just dropped something
Oh never mind its just a name

So well rehearsed
Impeccable timing but
completely lost on me i's afraid

No and i could't care
what chinos your wearing
or who does your hair
im this close to swearing so
If your a man of your word your better of saying nothing
nothing

Then in 54321
you've gone and done it again
playing yourself saying something, something
So i 54321
I think its time to pretend i had a prior engagement
and make like i'm gone

What makes you think
that your just so important
to only ever talk and never hear

So wrapped up in
your delusions of grandeur
to truly realise nobody really cares

Lets all raise a glass
a standing ovation
big pat on the back
for seeking attention
rude boy
before you take time to boast
try taking time out to listen
listen

But in 54321
you've gone and done it again
playing yourself saying something, something
So i 54321
I think its time to confess
you don't deserve my attention
attention
no no

no no
Cause in 54321 yeh
again and again and again and again

You should know better

Then in 54321
you've gone and done it again (said no no no no no
playing yourself saying something, something ( no no no
So in 54321 (you talk too much)
I think its time to pretend i had a prior engagement
and make like i'm gone

again and again and again and again
Track Name: Reverse & Rewind
Shut the gate
just bit the bullet
Walking backwards down the garden path
Unsay the words that made you loose
dodge the glass as you unbreak your hand

If we dangle upside down
undo what we done
undo what we done yeh
Keep a secret back to front
undo what we done
undo what we done
yeh

Take it back
take it back
take it back
and start again
then i could pretend
that i never meant to hurt you

Take it back
take it back
take it back
and make it better
just reverse the past
cause there aint no need for making sense

Take a breath
unstop the music
pour the kettle back in to the tap
If we rewind our pride don't bruise it
we'll remember what it means to laugh

If we dangle upside down
undo what we done
undo what we done yeh
Keep a secret back to front
undo what we done
undo what we done
yeh

Take it back
take it back
take it back
and start again
then i could pretend
that i never meant to hurt you

Take it back
take it back
take it back
and make it better
just reverse the past
cause there aint no need for making sense

undo what we done
undo what we done
undo what we done
No there aint no need for making sense x2

Take it back
take it back
take it back
and start again
then i could pretend
that i never meant to hurt you

Take it back
take it back
take it back
and make it better
just reverse the past
cause there aint no need for making sense

undo what we done
undo what we done
undo what we done
No there aint no need for making sense x2

Reverse it rewind it
unrunning out of time
unshouting
unfighting
there aint no need for making sense x2
