Spiral 04:57
Keeping photographs, though I know I should Burn them all 'cause it does no good Staring at your smile all day Only amplifies my fragile state And I just can't find the reasons to explain Why my mind just circles back again Every time you walk away I start to slide with every day I spiral out of control Every time you say goodbye My head's a mess, I just won't lie I spiral out of control See the same old faces everyday Drinking coffee in the same cafe Where we would go to talk all night The people ask me now if I'm alright So I just lie and tell them I'm okay But in my mind, I'm a million miles away Repeat Chorus I'm like a lost dog looking for a home A lone star in the midnight sky alone And though I know you're well and truly gone It don't make it easier Lord, I wish it was easier To just move on Repeat Chorus

Drink a glass half full to a heart half empty Are we too far gone or just about to fade Looking back there were signs a plenty Looking forward are we too late to save Can we work it out baby Tell me if everything will be alright 'Cause I just can't see the light Like the morning sun will we rise tomorrow Like the midnight stars will we light up the sky Our fragile hearts have had their taste of sorrow Will the taste still linger or will it soon subside Repeat Chorus I'm done waiting for so long If we're through then baby won’t you set me free The time when you used to feel like home Is a distant memory [hold on F] Eb (That’s why I’m asking) Can we work it out baby Tell me if everything will be alright 'Cause I just can't see the light Can we work it out baby Tell me if everything will be alright 'Cause I just can't see I still can’t see No, I just can’t see the light

Mess I'm In 04:40
Last night, words were said You mentioned love and then falling apart all in one breath I wish you would make your mind up and choose 'Cause if you don't want me around Then baby, stop lighting my fuse I'm in two minds to stay But in no shape to drive away I know two wrongs don't make it right So I just won't say Girl you've been at it again Got my heart in a spin Reeling from the mess I'm in The reason for the mess I'm in Last night blood was spilled Tongue tied and twisted But still enough venom to kill I wish you would open your eyes and see That if you don't want me around Then baby try setting me free Repeat Chorus Oh, your lies leave me unstable That's what they do I hope you realise when you're able What you put me through Repeat Chorus

City Lights 03:59
She could see the city lights From up on the hill, late at night Tried to keep her but I lost that fight When I lost my baby to the city lights She could hear the call of fame And the neon lights lighting up her name But there’s no denying just who’s to blame Oh city lights you should be ashamed For taking my baby away from me Left me in a state of constant misery She got out, I’m sure she’s fine But I’m not so certain ‘bout this heart of mine And the whole keeps growing wider day by day I could have gone but I’m a simple boy And I know that I would not enjoy Those city lights shining in my face I heard about those city lights Long before that dreaded night Went to bed thinking we’re alright But she was gone by morning light Oh city lights why can’t you see The destruction you have rained on me ‘cause love is more than a fly by night Or the seductive call of those city lights Repeat Chorus I could have gone but I’m a simple boy And I know that I would not enjoy Those city lights shining in my face Those city lights shining in my face Those city lights shining in my face

Hummingbird 03:17
There's a hummingbird singing in the old oak tree Where we used to run and play Every night I sit and listen from my window sill To hear what song she brings today The swing I pushed you on The fragile branch it dangled from Has long since disappeared But the memory locked away inside of me Comes alive each time I hear Her sing a song And she sings at the top of her lungs The girl I've always loved Who had to go and find herself Has now come to realise All the shiny things won't replace the joy it brings When the hummingbird flies by To sing a song That she sings at the top of her lungs Is it wrong to assume that with all its imperfections Love can conquer and consume Is it wrong to assume that even with her broken wing The hummingbird still can sing in perfect tune Little hummingbird perched upon my window sill Tells me my love has arrived So I won't hesitate Rush to meet her at the gate With all my feelings brought to life We'll sing her song And we'll sing at the top of our lungs There's a hummingbird singing in the old oak tree Where we used to run and play
