Track Name: Back To The Grindstone
They say money makes the world go round
But it's got me, got me like a puppeteer

Day in, day out, day in, day out

Back to grindstone, back to grindstone
Back to the grindstone

I've looked to the sky so many times
Yeah I've looked to the sky so many times
Wish I could fly high and never come down
Wish I could fly high

Day in, day out, day in. day out

Back to grindstone, back to grindstone
Back to the grindstone
Track Name: Trust
Who can I trust
Who can I trust

Show your true colours
Just show your true colours...

They say all is fair in love and war
But I'm not sure

Who I can trust
Who can I trust

Show your true colours...

I see different colours around me
She's red, he's green, they're blue

Oh who can I trust...

Show your true colours...

Trust, trust...
Track Name: Digging Deep
It's hard standing on your own two feet
When there's no one you can turn to
It's hard standing on your own two feet
When there's no one to support you

I keep digging deep
I keep digging deep

It's hard standing on your own two feet
Cause the streets aren't paved with gold
It's hard standing on your own two feet
When no one wants to know

I keep digging deep
I keep digging deep
Track Name: Now Summer's Gone
Just a week has passed
and now it seems the summer has gone
Walking round these streets in the pouring rain

I'm just waiting for the sun to come again

Seems like you just walked through the door,
now you've got to go
I wish you didn't have to leave so soon

I'll be counting down the days 'til I see you again

I'll be counting down the days, just counting down the days

Walked passed the place
where I sat with you
If I could turn back time I'd still be, there with you

But for every choice you make there's a price to pay

Just a week has passed and now it seems the summer has gone
Just a week has passed and I wonder where the time has gone...
Track Name: I Need Some Uplifting
I need some uplifting
I need someone or something
Just to see me through the day
Inside there's a light
It's what I've got to find
For the life of me
Another numbered day
Another numbered day

I need some uplifting...

Forget and numb the pain
Forget and numb the pain
All bottled up inside
A splinter in my mind

I need some uplifting...

Inside there's a light of day
That's what I've got to find
For the life of me
For the life of me
For the life of me
For the life of me

I gotta get away
Just to see me through the day
I gotta get away
Forget and numb the pain

I need some uplifting...
Track Name: Really Does It For Me
It's true what they say
Well it is for me
Cause I've been dreaming of making love
To every girl I see

Wow
It's the way they dress
It's the way they move
It really does it for me
It really does it for me

And I know you know
That you're every bit a woman
cause when you're walking down the street
Yeah your body language speaks

Wow
It's the way you dress
It's the way you move
It really does it for me
It really does for me

You got me so turned on
You give me visions of love
You got me so turned on
You could rule my world, baby

It's the way you dress
It's the way you move
It really does it for me
It really does it for me
I really really love
The way your body curves
Track Name: The Loneliest Man In The World
Hey you
How you doing?
Are you ok?
There's people like you, people like me
Running around chasing a dream

I'll introduce myself
I've been feeling like the loneliest man in the world

A stranger
I've been here for years
We walk in parallel
Awash with people like us

And I know you're a bit like me

How was I suppose to know
This city could be so cold
So far from those I know and love
The days seem bought and sold
Sometimes I feel without a friend
These feelings I store unheard
If it's just a passing phase
Then why do I feel like the loneliest man in the world?

Feeling this low
There's a place I'll go
I hope you show
If you show

You'll never know
I've been feeling like the loneliest man in the world
I'll introduce myself
I've been feeling like the loneliest man in the world
The loneliest man in the world
The loneliest man in the world
Track Name: Long Lost
As I walk along this lonely street
All I see and all I feel,
Is everything I miss and everything I've lost,
Now you're gone

As I walk along this lonely street
All these feelings that I'd locked away,
Now they're coming back,
To haunt me

My long lost lover, my long lost friend
I long for you
My long lost lover, my long lost friend
I long for you

As I walk along this lonely street
I should be banging on your door
Down on my knees
But you don't live there anymore

My long lost over, my long lost friend
I long for you...

I long for you...

As I walk along this lonely street
Don't wanna go home to an empty house
Don't wanna lie awake
In that empty bed tonight

My long lost lover, my long lost friend
I long for you...

I long for you...
Track Name: We Should Be Closer
I don't know what to say
Don't know what moves I should make any more
And in the space between you and me,
The bridge is falling down

It's falling down
Falling down

Oh what happened to you and me
What happened to you and me...
We should be closer

When I see you now
I feel so insecure, I feel so incomplete
Cause I don't know where I stand
When the barriers are so cold

You're so cold
you're so cold

Oh what happened to you and me
What happened to to you and me...
We should be closer

We sholud be closer
We should be closer...

Oh what happened to you and me...
Track Name: Walking Home
Walking home it's 5 in the morning
I love it when the streets are deserted
Coming back from another dimension
Yeah I'm still high and wasted
Reflecting on times gone
Of inner peace and happiness
A feeling I've tried to recapture,
All my life
On a voyage of discovery
To feel that way eternally

From up here I've got nothing to fear
From up hear everything is clear

Got out of bed in the afternoon
And picked up where I left off
Caught a tube, due east
Sitting here I'm just people watching
Watching where the messed up homeless meet,
At the bottom of a downward spiral
I wonder what drove them to this place
If it happened them, could it happen to me?

Oh from up here I've got nothing to fear
From up here everything is clear

Always try to keep an open mind
As big questions still turn in my mind
For everything I have seen
The answers are forever lost in my dreams

From up here I've got nothing to fear
From up here everything is clear

Fate, destiny, chance, karma
The past, the future and where I am right now

Never saw this coming
But I felt the tables turning
Saved myself for someone like you
Never made love this good

And lying here I've got nothing to fear
Lying hear everything is clear
Oh from up here I've got nothing to fear
From up here everything is clear...
