Pocket Watch

I thought I could be all you wanted
Fell too far from the tree now it’s rotten
But you’ll pack your bags and fly away
I’d never be, your reason to stay
Now I’m wondering why, you, bothered

Just a moment in time
That’s slipped away
Where things could have work out differently
Five years away
Why couldn’t that have been today
And I could see
That you wouldn’t be
The one to give up on me
Five years away
Why couldn’t that have been today

I hope it will be all you wanted
Can’t wait to hear all about it
I hope you come back, please understand that
Even if for only a day
As long as you’ve found your place

Just a moment in time
That’s slipped away
Where things could have work out differently
Five years away
Why couldn’t that have been today
And I could see
That you wouldn’t be
The one to give up on me
Five years away
Why couldn’t that have been today

Is it all in my head?
Is it all in my head?

Melted

There’s something, bout the weather tonight
That makes me want to kiss you
Makes me want to kiss you
Just like, the day that we met
For hours on end
For hours on end

And I can’t wait
Till you make up your mind
Though I’m happy
Wasting my time

On you
On you
There’s nothing that that smile couldn’t melt though
Oh I’ve been melted by you
Oh I’ve been melted by you

We talk, in every way
Day after day
Day after day
And I ask, if you’ll stay
Maybe someday
Maybe someday

I’m happy
Wasting my time
But I can’t wait
Till you make up your mind

Oh you
Oh you
There’s nothing that that smile couldn’t melt though
Oh I’ve been melted by you
Oh I’ve been melted by you

You melted me down, right from the start
Turned me away and decided to part
You never quite left but covered your heart
More than friends but less than lovers
And I can’t help that you’re all that I want
Even though you can’t figure it out
Maybe we’re both to blame
And just the same but

You
Oh you
There’s nothing that that smile couldn’t melt though
There’s nothing that those eyes couldn’t tell you
There’s nothing that your touch couldn’t get through
Oh I’ve been melted by you
Oh I’ve been melted by you

Ronnie

Running in circles
Chasing tales
Little did I know
How far I’d have to go
Its not fate
Its not hope
Its not meant to be known
Little did I know
How far I’d have to go

Where have you been my whole damn life
I’ve waited for years to get this right
When out of the blue I run into you
Yeah where have you been my whole damn life
My whole damn life, life
My whole damn life, life

Falling in circles
Saving face
Little could I see
The way it would be
It was raw
It was pure
It was all I asked and more
Little could I see
The way it would be

Where have you been my whole damn life
I’ve waited for years to get this right
When out of the blue I run into you
Yeah where have you been my whole damn life
My whole damn life, life
My whole damn life, life

Take It All

Woke up this morning in the calmest state
Looked in your eyes and I couldn’t wait
To say I love you
I really love you
From now until
The end of days

Take it all take it all take a little bit
I’m here if you fall, here if you call, if you can’t deal with it
All of time could pass and I’ll never fray
Take it all take it all or take a little bit

You’re stronger than you’ll ever know
So strong I can see you glow
You glow in the dark
You glow in the dark
Now I’ll never
Face the dark alone so

Take it all take it all take a little bit
I’m here if you fall, here if you call, if you can’t deal with it
All of time could pass and I’ll never fray
Take it all take it all or take a little bit

Take it all, you’re worth it all and I can live with it
Show me the world through your eyes
Give me a chance to realise
All your hopes, all your dreams, all that we could be
Help me understand your love for me and

Take it all take it all take a little bit
I’m here if you fall, here if you call, if you can’t deal with it
All of time could pass and I’ll never fray
Take it all take it all or take a little bit

Actions Speak Louder

I can’t help but wonder what you think
Because I must look like a nerves wreck to you
I can’t eat my food without feeling sick
But I’m ok with those butterflies you grew

I know you don’t say so much
So it’s time I learnt

Actions speak louder than words

Turns out my biggest mistake
Was trying not to do anything wrong by you
But now I know where things stand
I won’t be making the same mistakes again

I guess it’s time I take what I’ve learnt
And put to use that

Actions speak louder than words

Actions speak louder then
You’ve made me realise words don’t say so much
Compare to the feel of your touch
So next time it’s just you and I
Be sure to shut me up
Because words don’t say enough

If Only

She wants the best things
Money can buy
And I’d like to give her
Every diamond in the sky
But what can you do when you work 9 to 5
Only earning enough to get by

But I see the worries in her head
And all I want to do is fix them

If only she could smile
Smile cause the world still turns
Smile cause she’s beautiful
If only she could be
Be as happy as she makes me
If only the best nights
Could last forever
Maybe she could see
There’s more to life than money

She’s got problems bigger than mine
Problems with people, space and time
But we’re on a rock ball
Circling the sun
It puts it in perspective for some

But she sees the world different to me
But it’s still the same world cant she see

She’s got her heart in the right place
But sometimes her heads lost in space
She looks to the future all of the time
But we live in the present and the present is fine

So I’ve got a plan in my head
On how to fix them

If only she could smile
Smile cause the world still turns
Smile cause she’s beautiful
If only she could be
Be as happy as she makes me
If only the best nights
could last forever
maybe she could see
there’s no need to worry

She wants the best things money can buy
She’s got problems bigger than mine
She looks to the future all of the time

If only she could smile
Smile cause the world still turns
Smile cause she’s beautiful
If only she could be
Be as happy as she makes me
If only the best nights
Could last forever
Maybe she
Maybe she
Maybe she could see
She means the world to me

When You’re Back

Your smell in my sheets
Is fading away
It reminds me
Of a smile you gave
Deep in your eyes
There with your soul
Are the feelings I had
So long ago

But it’s the life you lead
You can’t let go
But you’re a part of me
And I want you to know

When you’re back
You’re back in my heart
When you’re back
We’re back to the start
When your back
I stop falling apart
When your back
You’re back in my arms, you’re back in my arms

Maybe some day
When you don’t have to leave
There’s a place for you here
Right next to me
I’ll buy you a ring
And we’ll tie the knot
Like it should have been
But it never was

You’re not like other girls
I’m not like other guys
I found a glass slipper
No need to try it for size

When you’re back
You’re back in my heart
When you’re back
We’re back to the start
When your back
I stop falling apart
When your back
You’re back in my arms

Angel Eyes

Are you an angel?
Cause there’s halos in your eyes
Surrounded by blue skies
In which I fall every time
Cause you knock the wind right out of me
And I just want the world to see
From the day that I met you
I felt grace through your disguise
And knew I wanted you to be mine

Oh angel eyes

Are you an alien?
Cause you’re out of this world
In case you haven’t heard it all before
Where is your spaceship?
I would cross the galaxies with you
Repopulate a planet or two
When you landed in my atmosphere
It all became clear
My love for you would span the length of time

Oh angel eyes

Are you a Genie?
Cause you make my every wish come true
And you must know my biggest wish is you
I see my future starting back at me
Every time I turn and see
There’s no other place I’d rather be

Oh angel eyes
Oh angel eyes
My angel eyes
You can see it in your eyes
You’re an angel you’re and angel
You’re an angel you’re and angel
My angel eyes

Tell You I Love You

Open those bright eyes honey
Tell me you think I’m funny
Tell me you think I’m cunning
The one opinion I need
I might be a shy boy
But until I die oh
You’re the only one I need

And I don’t care it if gets complicated
Or if there’s something else you need

I’ll tell you I love you in the darkest hours
I’ll tell you I love you if the spark is gone
I’ll tell you I love you underwater baby
I’ll tell you I love you ‘cause I can’t be wrong

How was your day babe?
Tell me the same things
I could listen to you all night long
Tell me the highs and low
Give me the ‘to and fros’
Even though I know how this one goes

And I don’t care it if gets complicated
Or if there’s something else you need

I’ll tell you I love you in the darkest hours
I’ll tell you I love you if the spark is gone
I’ll tell you I love you underwater baby
I’ll tell you I love you ‘cause I can’t be wrong

And I know that we’ll find
Our way someday
Where you don’t have to say
That you don’t know your place

I’ll tell you I love you in the darkest hours
I’ll tell you I love you if the spark is gone
I’ll tell you I love you underwater baby
I’ll tell you I love you ‘cause I can’t be wrong

I’ll tell you I love you till the cows come home
I’ll tell you I love you when the rugby’s on
I’ll tell you I love I’ll tell you I love
I’ll tell you I love you ‘cause I love your soul

Confliction

I look into the mirror
And I don’t recognise the man who’s looking back at me
I’m leaving through the doorway I’m walking down the street
And everything is looking blurry and I’m feeling the defeat

I don’t why
I don’t know how
I don’t know up
I don’t know down
And where I’m going I am lost and without knowing

And I’ll stand here in the dark inside the corners of my mind
I’m chasing shadows I don’t know what it is I am meant to find
And I’m looking for a sign
Looking for anything at all
There ain’t no answers inside me
And I’m not what I’m meant to be

Welcomed back with open arms
And I’m not really sure what’s happening
I’m feeling there’s a hole that’s inside me
And its empty and its and its black
I try to climb I’m falling back
I’m reaching closer to the day that I break free

And I’m standing here wide open
And I’m watching as the whole world dies
We’ve taking this too far again I see
And I’m still lost inside my mind
But maybe there’s a way to help me tame
The fire that’s been burning inside me
I’ll find out what I’m meant to be

Right Where You Want Me

You’ve let me into your heart
Into your home
It’s a place I know I’ve grown
And without you
Life would still
Be as boring as the sugar pill

You’ve got me right where you want me and I’m happy with that
Cause there’s a place in your heart, it can’t get better than that
And when I wake up tomorrow I will love you still
I always will

And when I’m left here on my own
All I want is for you to come home
But I know all I have to do
Is wait for you to return

You’ve got me right where you want me and I’m happy with that
Cause there’s a place in your heart, it can’t get better than that
And when I wake up tomorrow I will love you still
I always will

Gone Too Soon

R.I.P Katie Nattrass 17.6.91 – 4.2.13

If I could see the signs you were showing me
And read the lies you showed to me
I wouldn’t have to carry my regret
But now it’s too late I will never forget
The way you cared and the way you shared
Your life your love and your will to give
You gave the world your heart
And we treasured it

I hope you know that I loved you
Even though I wasn’t there to say goodbye
Your memory will live with me forever
And forever I will wonder why

I looked up to you for the good you do
Your gentle heart and caring eyes
You were my best friend
And a star in my eyes
The way you cared and the way you shared
Your life your love and your will to give
You gave the world your heart
And we treasured it

I hope you know that I loved you
Even though I wasn’t there to say goodbye
Your memory will live with me forever
And forever I will wonder why
You had to go too soon
And it’s not fair that I
Didn’t get to say goodbye
You had to go too soon
And I didn’t get to say
Goodbye
Goodbye

Oh it’s not fair that your gone too soon
And I didn’t get to say goodbye
Oh it’s not fair that your gone too soon
And I didn’t get to say goodbye
