Train, rolling back in Empty pockets, empty bottle of gin I should’ve known better, I should’ve tried harder I should’ve held tighter Thoughts, thrown on the tracks Can only go forward cause I’m not going back I should’ve known better, I should’ve tried harder I should’ve held tighter But who am I, to say I didn’t try When I’m the one who laid it on the line Who would I be if I didn’t go I would never know [CHORUS] I should’ve known better, I should’ve tried harder But I’d rather fall than not try at all I should’ve played safer But then I realized I can’t see the world through someone else’s eyes Oh my, oh my This fate, I’ve brought on myself No I ain’t gonna blame anyone else Just gonna try harder, gonna be honest With myself But who am I, to say I didn’t try When I’m the one who laid it on the line Who would I be if I didn’t go I would never know [CHORUS] I should’ve known better, I should’ve tried harder But I’d rather fall than not try at all I should’ve played safer But then I realized I can’t see the world through someone else’s eyes Oh my, oh my [BRIDGE] Hold on / hold on / it’s all in my mind Hold on / hold on / it’s all in my mind [CHORUS] I should’ve known better, I should’ve tried harder But I’d rather fall than not try at all I should’ve played safer But then I realized I can’t see the world through someone else’s eyes Oh my, oh my Hold on / hold on / it’s all in my mind Hold on / hold on / it’s all in my mind

I could wash my hands of you Move on to the next new thing We curse and fight 'til you feel that you've got it right What's the use, in me sayin' anything at all I walk these streets and every damn guy that I see I wonder, if he could do a better job than you he's so much younger, I wouldn't even have to think it through But there's no doubt in my mind, it's just a matter of time, Before the cracks and the lines start to show So it's better, better the devil you know Where did those young lovers go? Watching dusk turn to dawn through the window It used to feel so right, but now we're just ships passing in the night Is this what happens over time? Would it happen with any guy? (and still I wonder...) If he could do a better job than you He's so much younger, I wouldn't even have to think it through But there's no doubt in my mind, it's just a matter of time, Before the cracks and the lines start to show So it's better, better the devil you know And I miss how you once looked at me But I know, how far we've come don't come easy So I wonder, who could do a better job than you? When we were younger, we didn't even have to think it through Oh I wonder, who could do a better job than you When we were younger, we didn’t even have to think it through There's no doubt in my mind, it's just a matter of time Before the cracks and the lines start to go So it's better, it’s better the devil you know Mmmm Yeah

Sometimes when I’m standing too close I can’t see anymore There are times I’m right, but when I’m wrong, I’m never too sure Pick myself up, I know this feeling I can’t get enough, let go, I’m dreaming [CHORUS] Cause when I’m failing, that’s okay I can take it Maybe I just gotta wait my turn Cause sometimes I’ll win, sometimes I’ll win Sometimes I’ll learn Sometimes I’ll learn Maybe I just gotta wait my turn Cause sometimes I’ll win, sometimes I’ll win Sometimes I’m staring to hard at the lights, gonna leave me behind Since when did falling hit me so hard, it used to be fine Pick myself up, I know, this feeling I can’t get enough, let go I’m dreaming [CHORUS] When I’m failing, that’s okay I can take it Maybe I just gotta wait my turn Cause sometimes I’ll win, sometimes I’ll win Sometimes I’ll learn Sometimes I’ll learn Maybe I just gotta wait my turn Cause sometimes I’ll win, sometimes I’ll win Sometimes [BRIDGE] I realise, I can everything right from where I’m standing All the years, led me here, looking back, still don’t understand When I’m failing, that’s okay I can take it [CHORUS] When I’m failing, that’s okay I can take it Maybe I just gotta wait my turn Cause sometimes I’ll win, sometimes I’ll win Sometimes I’ll learn Sometimes I’ll learn Maybe I just gotta wait my turn Cause sometimes I’ll win, sometimes I’ll win Sometimes OUTRO Sometimes I’ll win / Sometimes I’ll learn x 4

Ireland 04:01
I know, you get colder in the winter I remember that snow like it was yesterday Every year, we’re both getting older I thought I’d be back to you by now, but I’m still on my way There’s a saying isn’t there That home is where the heart is But I swear, every part of me is there So I’ll take your rain instead of sun The green of your hills and the summer that never lasts long The way you’ve made the whole world fall in love with your dance and your song And I’ve only learned to love you, now that I am gone Ireland you’re my home I miss sitting by, an open fire, just talking Telling tales and singing trad all night With an open bottle, and warm hearts all around me Walking home in the rain, in the half light There’s a saying isn’t there That home is where the heart is But I swear, every part of me is there So I’ll take your rain instead of sun The green of your hills and the summer that never lasts long The way you’ve made the whole world fall in love with your dance and your song And I’ve only learned to love you, now that I am gone Ireland you’re my home There’s a saying we all know May the road rise up to meet you, wherever you go I hope that road is leading home So I’ll take your rain instead of sun The green of your hills and the summer that never lasts long The way you’ve made the whole world fall in love with your dance and your song And I’ve only learned to love you, now that I am gone Ireland you’re my home

Underrated 03:31
How can I paint a picture / when the paint has run dry When the spaces on the canvas leave me asking why? From the outside looking in / I know the walls are wearing thin / it’s just a matter of time But the wall that casts the shadow is the one that’s getting harder to climb Harder to climb [CHORUS] Don’t underrate me Oh oh oh I know that I can carry my own As long as it takes me Oh oh oh I’m not afraid to go it alone How can I answer the question / when the answers a lie When I know that the reaction would drag me behind Oh the wall that casts the shadow is the one that’s always harder to climb Harder to climb CHORUS How can I paint a picture / when the paint has run dry? DOUBLE CHORUS

If you’re trying to bring me down, you’re already below me Climbing to the higher ground, just so you can show That you’ve been here before Tell me it’s not your first rodeo But if you’re trying to bring me down, you’re already below me I can see where this is going now we are Fighting fire with fire, always ends with a burn See your dress getting tighter, will you ever learn, ever learn I’ll be here on the sidelines, just waiting my turn I’d rather fail, than be runnin’, runnin’ If you’ve nothing nice to say, why don’t you try silence So set in your ways, you got it down to a science But you’ve been here before, I see it in the way you work the floor I was warned about people like you, who tell me to follow everything that you do I see where this is going, now we are Fighting fire with fire, always ends with a burn See your dress getting tighter, will you ever learn, ever learn I’ll be here on the sidelines, just waiting my turn I’d rather fail, than be runnin’, runnin’ I’d rather let it go I’d rather lose it all If I don’t know where I’m going to, or what the hell I’m meant to do That’s okay At least I wont be Fighting fire with fire, always ends with a burn See your dress getting tighter, will you ever learn… I’ll be here on the sidelines, just waiting my turn I’d rather fail, than be runnin’, runnin’ than be runnin’, runnin’ than be runnin’, runnin’ than be runnin’, runnin’

Were you just another face on my morning train Another black umbrella in the rain Hidden behind a book in a cafe Where I used to get my coffee everyday I wonder if, we were strangers, before we met Did your hand brush mine in the street But you didn't turn around as you said sorry Was there a time we stood at the same bar Your back to mine so close but yet so far I wonder if, we were strangers, before we met [CHORUS] I don't know I can't tell you why Some people come, some go, some pass you by I believe, somewhere, sometime I bet, That we were strangers, before we met Were you just somebody looking for an empty seat and the only one there was was next to me Were you just another face that I was gonna forget No when you smiled, I knew I hadn't lived yet The most beautiful stranger, I've ever met [CHORUS] I don't know I can't tell you why Some people come, some go, some pass you by I believe, somewhere, sometime I bet, That we were strangers, before we met No I don't know I can't tell you why Some people come, some go, some pass you by But I feel, I've known you all my life And thats why, I can't believe We were once strangers, before we met The most beautiful stranger, I've ever met

London City 03:37
You’ve drawn me in / you kept me here 5 short, but 5 long years You’ve kept me crazy, you kept me sane If I had the choice, I’d do it again You hold no limits / you let me explore Find out who I am / who I’m not anymore You’ve kept me crazy / you kept me blind If I had the choice / would I leave you behind? I won’t shed a tear for you, London City I won’t shed a tear for you, London City You always knew, the right words to say You changed me, defied me, defined me in ways But I won’t shed a tear for you, London City The times you pushed me down / and drowned me out / too many people / too much to talk about But when I listened out / you taught me how / to by myself amongst the crowd And I can’t stop now Shedding tears for you, London City Shedding tears for you, London City You always knew, the right words to say You changed me, defied me, defined me in ways Now I can’t stop, shedding tears, London City I can’t stop shedding tears, London City (x4) London City London City

Rootless 03:48
I can’t stay here / on solid ground It's too deep to dig and the winter is coming round (So I’m) Running out of reasons to run / And running out of seasons to grow There must be a demon I know Who’s got an empty seat, yeah So let’s go / because I’m rootless you know? Ohhhh… Let the wind take me there Ohhhh… Like snow in summer I / don’t belong anywhere I'm not lost / not erased / but my roots / can’t be traced I'll never stay / in one place / for long enough I’m rootless I’m running out of reasons to stay It’s funny how time makes us wait There must be a demon to say I’ve got an empty seat Ohhhh… Let the wind take me there Ohhhh… Like snow in summer I / don’t belong anywhere I'm not lost / not erased / but my roots / can’t be traced I'll never stay / in one place / for long enough I’m rootless

Break Hearts 03:18
Keep fallin' in love, with the idea of us I try to forget, but you keep bringing it up It’s not the words you say It’s the feelin’ you give me Can’t forget, why do I want it so much? I’ve got his picture, as the background on my phone I shouldn’t consider, what I want when we’re alone I don’t wanna break hearts Don’t wanna be the one who messes up for the sake of Just maybe, this could be Real love, we’re feeling right now But I don’t know how I could break hearts Don’t wanna be responsible for the break up Cause maybe, this could be Real love, but we’ll never say Cause we’re too afraid to break hearts Keep losing my mind, with this game we play You sit a little too close, but I don’t move away It’s not the words you say, but the moment our eyes catch We’re stranded there, you look away too fast I’ve got her picture, as the background on my phone I shouldn’t consider, what I want when we’re alone I don’t wanna break hearts Don’t wanna be the one who messes up for the sake of Just maybe, this could be Real love, we’re feeling right now But I don’t know how I could break hearts Don’t wanna be responsible for the break up Cause maybe, this could be Real love, but we’ll never say Cause we’re too afraid to break hearts Would it be worth it, would it be worth it To break hearts Would it be worth it, would you be worth it To break hearts Don’t wanna be the one who messes up for the sake of FULL CHORUS OUTRO Would it be worth it, would it be worth it To break hearts Would it be worth it, would you be worth it To break hearts

I know if we make love, it’ll only break us down We’ll be caught up in the moment, wishing we could work this out But a temporary high, is not gonna make this right So I know if we make love, it’ll only break us down Maybe we can try and turn this thing around Try and find a middle ground But we can make this right between the sheets Maybe we can end up in a better place If we’re brave and if we face All the ghosts we love to hide beneath CHORUS So I wish the ground would open up, swallow me whole Take my soul And wash it clean, I can’t breathe, My head’s under water I wish the gates of hell, could burn my skin Let me begin To shed these layers, even though I’m scared My head’s under water head’s under water (yeah) I know if we fight this, we will never right this wrong We’ll be running round in circles, knowing that we can’t go on This temporary high, is not gonna make this right So I know if we fight this, we will never right this wrong Try and turn this thing around Try and find a middle ground But we can make this right between the sheets Maybe we can end up in a better place If we’re brave and if we face All the ghosts we love to hide beneath CHORUS So I wish the ground would open up, swallow me whole Take my soul And wash it clean, I can’t breathe, My head’s under water I wish the gates of hell, could burn my skin Let me begin To shed these layers, even though I’m scared My head’s under water head’s under water (yeah) BRIDGE I’m drowning in fear, at least I’m here drowning in fear, at least I’m here drowning in fear, at least I’m here drowning in fear CHORUS END

Winter Sun 03:23
Snow is falling fast River's frozen still Heading home at last It's been a long, long lonely year Looking for the truth, fell so many times But coming back to you, That is what brings me back to life CHORUS: When I'm cold, oh when I'm frozen Take my hands 'cause when you hold 'em You melt away the winter, You know that when I'm with you I can grow, when shadows fade Now that I know, I'm not afraid Cause when I'm with you A new day has begun You're my winter sun Even through the clouds I still know you're there Ready to come out After the storm has passed CHORUS: When I'm cold, oh when I'm frozen Take my hands 'cause when you hold 'em You melt away the winter, You know that when I'm with you I can grow, when shadows fade Now that I know, I'm not afraid Cause when I'm with you A new day has begun You're my winter sun BRIDGE: Warming me, calling me, home Warming me, calling me, home Warming me, calling me, home Home CHORUS END
