Track Name: Peter
When you see my face you smile
have you been listening all the while
do you know me
can you show me

What are you thinking in there
I hope you know that I care
Whats inside you what can I do

Do you know who I am
and if you do do you wonder where I am
Do you know who I am
and if you do do you
Track Name: Empty House
Were the feelings much too great
That we couldn’t communicate
It wasn’t that we didn’t care
The courage to just wasn’t there

We’re all talking around things we mean to say
Don’t make a sound it will fade away

But it’s making me crazy
I feel like I’m obsessed
Just seeing you daily
And knowing that you’re so upset

We’re all talking around things we mean to say
Don’t make a sound it will fade away

Like a loud sound in an empty house
It echoes on and on

What we need to talk about
Would surely let the feelings out
But the rules that we abide
Hide vulnerability inside

We’re all talking around things we mean to say
Don’t make a sound it will fade away

Like a loud sound in an empty house
It echoes on and on

It echoes on and on
Track Name: Wasting Time
Walking around
rying to find where I left myself
Wondering why
I even tried to let myself
Do the thinking’

There I go
Talking again about me
Am I wasting your time

If I go back
Maybe I’ll see where I went wrong
Losing track
Maybe I was off track along

There I go
Talking again about me
Am I wasting your time

Though the distance makes me sad
I might be missing things I never had

Thinking out loud
wishing you could be there for me
Reminding myself
All that I have is a memory

There I go
Talking again about you
Am I wasting my time time
Wasting your time
Wasting my time
Track Name: Grey Sky
Blue sky is gone
Here comes the grey and the rain is coming on
I think it’s gonna be a long long time
Before we see the sun shine

That’s alright with me
Sometimes the summer heat and I disagree
It’s not like I’m from a very warm place
And the rain on my face reminds me of home

Chorus; Blue Sky turning grey
Looks like it’s gonna be another beautiful rainy day
A storm’s coming in
With rain so cold
You feel it through your skin
I used to hate it when
The weather got this way
But now I love to watch the trees sway

The wind is winding through
But it’s not strong enough
To bring me back to you
At least we know that we found shelter from our storm
While we needed to keep warm
Chorus x2 ½
Track Name: Little Voice
It’s just a little voice
Doesn’t seem like a choice
Just a little nudge a slight budge
Against the noise

It breaths into you
Shows you what you should do
You can run around and shut it down but it’s true

I should have kissed him
But I didn’t want to make a scene
I never knew how much I’d miss him
Or what this day would mean

So don’t walk away
Say what you mean to say
Hope you don’t make
the same mistakes
That I made

And don’t tell yourself
It’s al in your head
That whisper now
Becomes a shout
You’ll regret

Oh, so many things
I didn’t tell him
I didn’t want to make him cry
I wish that I’d just held him
I didn’t know it was goodbye

It’s just a little voice
Doesn’t seem like a choice
Just a little nudge a slight budge
Against the noise

And don’t tell yourself
It’s al in your head
That whisper now
Becomes a shout
You’ll regret
Track Name: Wish You Were Here
There’s not a day I
Don’t miss you at all
Life’s like back ice
You don’t see it till you fall

Wish you were here, I know you’re not
To hold me close, I know you can’t
To love m still, I know you did
But you’re gone

Wish I could say things
I haven’t said before
But the truth is
There’s days I can barely get up off this floor

Wish you were here, I know you’re not
To hold me close, I know you can’t
To love m still, I know you did
But you’re gone

There’s not a day
That I don’t think of you
No choice I make
I don’t wonder what you’d do

What would you think of me x2

What would you think of me x4

Wish you were here, I know you’re not
To hold me close, I know you can’t
To love m still, I know you did
But you’re gone
X2
Track Name: Five O 'Clock
Take me out of this misery
I’m only hurting myself
I know it loves company but
It isn’t good for my health
Cause the same words
Keep going round and round in my head
Never sane words
And they’re better left unsaid

I might need just a little help to
Turn the other cheek
I know it’s a sign of strength but
It’s got me feeling so weak
Cause the same words
Keep going round and round in my mind
Never sane words
And they’re usually unkind

Oh, I know I must change
Oh, I must stop

Cause 5 o’clock somewhere
Seems to come a little earlier each day
And the sorrows I’ve been trying to hide
Never seem to float away

I tell myself that it’s no big deal
Whatever gets through the day but
I don’t know another way to feel
I guess that isn’t OK
Cause the same words
Keep going round and round in my mind
Never sane words
And they’re usually unkind

Oh, I know I must change
Oh, I must stop

Cause 5 o’clock somewhere
Seems to come a little earlier each day
And the sorrows I’ve been trying to hide
Never seem to float away
Track Name: Better For You
I’m not what you planned
No dream you had
I’m nothing on your list
Nothing you had wished
Push me away
Tell me not to stay
Not to tie you down
But I’m still around

Chorus; I’m better for you
Than you know
I’m better for you
than you know


You see all my faults
and the things I lack
but I feel the way
you kiss me back
no matter what you say
I know someday
You’ll hold me close
You just don’t know

Chorus; I’m better for you
Than you know
I’m better for you
than you know


Don’t be so sure
What you’re looking for
You can’t be sure enough
When it comes to love
You just hold on tight
If it feels right
Don’t push me away
You know I’ll stay

Chorus; I’m better for you
Than you know
I’m better for you
than you know
x2
Track Name: Fade Away
We’ve all been let down
Been pushed around
It feels like you have no choice
We’ve all been left out
We’ve all wanted to shout’
I’m here and I have a voice

Chorus; Don’t let me fade away
I just want to say
A difference was made
By the role I played

We’ve all made mistakes
We’ve all had bad breaks but you learn
And you try to grow
We’ve all lost someone
and come undone
But it time I hope you know

You don’t let them fade away
Attention must be paid to the role they played and the difference they made
I don’t know much but I know how to love
I don’t know much, but I knew your love, I knew your love
I won’t let you fade away, attention will be paid
To the role you played and the difference in my life you made
Won’t let you fade away, won’t you fade away x2
Track Name: This Is It
This is it, this is life
Somebodies Mum
Somebodies Wife
Spent my life looking for love. This is it

This is here, this is now
Don’t need to worry
About how
To always make the next decision. This is it

Chorus; I know how quickly this all can go
I know you know how quickly this all can go

This is real , this is home
Don’t have to feel so alone
This was all I ever wanted. This is it

This is life, this is love
And I know that’s enough
Don’t have to feel so haunted. This is it

Chorus; I know how quickly this all can go
I know you know how quickly this all can go

Repeat first verse
Track Name: Next Year
Next Year
I have cried my last tear
Over you this year
I have tried so hard
Don’t wanna try so hard next year

Next year I will listen to my heart
Next year I will finish what I start
I’ll do all the things I said I’ll do
I’ll do them without you

I have cried my last tear
Over you this year
I have tried so hard
It shouldn’t be so hard

Next year I will learn to speak my mind
Next year I don’t know what I will find
But I know it’s not too late to try
I won’t let my life just pass me by

Next year I will listen to my heart
Next year I will finish what I start
I’ll do all the things I said I’ll do
I’ll do them without you
