Didn’t know how long she’d loved him
But he had known for a while
Could he admit to loving her back
But that just wasn’t his style

Feelings, a whole new bag of worms
The whole thing seemed absurd
She needed to hear him say it
But to him they were just words

It was coming coming coming to a head
He was recoiling from what he never said
Regrets, trying to undo the wrong
Desperate to figure out where he belongs

And all he had to do
Was say I love you too
What he couldn’t do
Was say I love you too

Can’t figure himself out
But through the anguish and hurt
No matter how hard he tried
He just couldn’t say the words

Suffering in silence
Brain not connected to his mouth
No matter how hard he tried
They just wouldn’t come out

It was coming coming coming to a head
He was recoiling from what he never said
Regrets, trying to undo the wrong
Desperate to figure out where he belongs

And all he had to do
Was say I love you too
What he couldn’t do
Was say I love you too

Torture and toment
Was it worth the cost
Torture and torment
Good love will be lost

It was coming coming coming to a head
He was recoiling from what he never said
Regrets, trying to undo the wrong
Desperate to figure out where he belongs

And all he had to do
Was say I love you too
What he couldn’t do
Was say I love you too

I Love You Too

It takes two to tango
My trusted partner I’m thrown
It takes two to tango
Now I’m dancing alone

Always did the best I can
But you changed the plan
I wasn’t ready to give up yet
Going over and over the steps
Always there to take my hand
But now gone I don’t understand

Hurtful things have been said
My feet once light now are lead
My feet no longer want to move
Without my partner I can’t improve
We tried to perfect the routine
But it was all a stupid dream

It takes two to tango
My trusted partner I’m thrown
It takes two to tango
Now I’m dancing alone
It takes two to tango
My trusted partner and friend
It takes two to tango
Doesn’t feel like we’ll dance again

I always thought that you would stay
But you danced off the other way
I’m lost and lonely at home
It’s not possible to tango alone
I knew something was a miss
We’ll never get to tango in Paris

It takes two to tango
My trusted partner I’m thrown
It takes two to tango
Now I’m dancing alone
It takes two to tango
My trusted partner and friend
It takes two to tango
Doesn’t feel like we’ll dance again

We never had a chance
We chose the wrong dance
As the dust settles on my shoes
Got it wrong so we both loose

It takes two to tango
My trusted partner I’m thrown
It takes two to tango
Now I’m dancing alone
It takes two to tango
My trusted partner and friend
It takes two to tango
Doesn’t feel like we’ll dance again

It Takes Two To Tango

Hollywood paints a picture of how life could be
But it’s not real for the likes of you and me
Hard keeping composure
Subjected to their exposure
A perfect husband a perfect wife
A house a car a perfect life
But what Hollywood cannot see
Real life is not like the movies
For you and me

Advertisers try to sell the dream
We try to buy the things we’ve seen
We always want what we don’t have
We have to thank them for that

Like a train stuck on the tracks
The chains of frustration hold us back
Bound by the restrictions of life
Keep finding the energy to fight

It all seems unattainable
Ties that bind we strain and pull
We are brought up in the tradition
Keep trying no submission

Hollywood paints a picture of how life could be
But it’s not real for the likes of you and me
Hard keeping composure
Subjected to their exposure
A perfect husband a perfect wife
A house a car a perfect life
But what Hollywood cannot see
Real life is not like the movies
For you and me

Dreams to which we aspire
Chasing the life we desire
Cinemas and TV portray the impossible
Just hope we get a taste of it all

Media propaganda showing us why
Even if we aren’t interested we still try
Everyone in every nation
Has their dreams their aspirations

Working hard everyday
Making enough so we can play
Trying to find the strength
To get through another day

Hollywood paints a picture of how life could be
But it’s not real for the likes of you and me
Hard keeping composure
Subjected to their exposure
A perfect husband a perfect wife
A house a car a perfect life
But what Hollywood cannot see

For you and me

Individuals who think and feel
Understand the movies isn’t real
Like water flows in a stream
We keep living the dream

Hard keeping composure
Subjected to their exposure
A perfect husband a perfect wife

Always striving for perfection
Confused with the direction
Always keep your mind open
Stop trying to fix what isn’t broken

When things don’t feel like they should
Just look at it and see the good
The answer is always there
It doesn’t always need a repair
It could be right but a little strange
You don’t have to rearrange
Take a breath a step back
Sure there may be something that it lacks
But it could all be good and right
Just have see it in a fresh light

Always striving for perfection
Confused with the direction
Always keep your mind open
Stop trying to fix what isn’t broken

Talk and take outside advice
Different perspective different eyes
It’s not always a smooth road
You sometimes get too close
Your eyes may be blinkered
You may be an over thinker
Your creativity in your hands
Only you can understand
Where it goes, what you want to achieve
But in yourself you have to believe

Always striving for perfection
Confused with the direction
Always keep your mind open
Stop trying to fix what isn’t broken

Always striving for perfection
Careful with your selection
Always keep your mind open
Stop trying to fix what isn’t broken

Fix What Isn't Broken

You wake up and everything is grey
You know there has to be a better way
It should be richer, should be fuller
Life should be lived and lived in colour
lived in colour
lived in colour

No need to be flamboyant
Don’t make up a disguise
Just clear your head
And open your eyes

Drink and drugs never the answer
Your vision only gets blurred
All the things important to you
Start to become obscured

You wake up and everything is grey
You know there has to be a better way
It should be richer should be fuller
Life should be lived and lived in colour
lived in colour
lived in colour

We all need colour not black and white
Having a party isn’t always right
Stay out of the shadows and the dark
Be true to yourself hear your heart

You’ve got filters on your eyes
You’re just older not wise
Stop listening to what you should do
Find what’s right for you

You’d give everything to keep what you never had
It’s not being generous, it’s just sad
Searching for happy when it’s all gone
When you’ve nothing left there’ll be no one

You wake up and everything is grey
You know there has to be a better way
It should be richer should be fuller
Life should be lived and lived in colour
lived in colour
lived in colour

Living life in the fast lane
Girls cars boats and planes
Having fun doesn’t always stay
It wears out and goes grey

We all need colour not black and white
Having a party isn’t always right
But stay out of the shadows and the dark
Be true to yourself hear your heart

When you wake up and everything is grey
You know there has to be a better way
It should be richer should be fuller
Life should be lived and lived in colour
lived in colour
lived in colour

Lived In Colour

There’s a bad place inside me, that I cannot explain
It makes me feel dark to my very soul
There’s a person that you don’t wanna set free
Because the devil has a hold

The light keeps disappearing, all I see is dark
It’s taken all my good thoughts, it’s even in my heart
The road that I have travelled, seems too far to go back
The light has disappeared it’s all gone black

So keep me away
Don’t let me in
It’s safer if you do
No one ever wins
So keep me away
Don’t let me in
It’s safer if you do
No one ever wins
No one ever wins

Deep inside this dark place, you don’t wanna see
Hiding in the dark because I fear the light
It may not have been the best plan
I’m just trying to do what’s right

I’ll pull you down with me, show you where it’s dark
You might have it together, but you will fall apart
Everything you see, is not all that it seems
Beauty on the outside a nightmare in your dreams

So keep me away
Don’t let me in
It’s safer if you do
No one ever wins

Stop asking me what’s wrong
Leave me alone
I don’t wanna be like this
It’s safer on my own
Wanna be by myself
Don’t wanna hurt you
I’m dealing with it
My shit get through

So keep me away
Don’t let me in
It’s safer if you do
No one ever wins
No one ever wins

I’m not a violent, man I just don’t like myself
I’m just hurting, I don’t need any help
Don’t talk about me, I have my pride
Please leave me alone so that I can hide

Leave me to myself
It’s the best way
I’m no fun anymore
I don’t wanna play
I won’t always be here
It’s the best way
I can’t help how I feel
Not myself today

So keep me away
Don’t let me in
It’s safer if you do
No one ever wins
No one ever wins

Stop asking what’s wrong
It’s safer on my own
I don’t wanna be like this
Leave me alone
Wanna be by myself
Don’t wanna hurt you
I’m dealing with it
My shit to get through

So keep me away
Don’t let me in
It’s safer if you do
No one ever wins
No one ever wins
No one ever wins

No One Ever Wins

I left you at the door
I don’t know what for
After tonight when we talked
I just turned and walked
But the

The one thing I forgot to do
Was I should’ve kissed you

Yes I was in a mood
Bad mannered and rude
It’s no use
I have no excuse
But the

The one thing I forgot to do
Was I should’ve kissed you

In my car drove away
Knowing I should stay
I could see your hurt
Wanted you to break first
But the

The one thing I forgot to do
Was I should’ve kissed you

I want to come back
And recover
Want to come back
And start over
This love to save
This mistake I made

Admit to you
That the one thing I forgot to do
Was I should’ve kissed you

Deep down inside
I’m stubborn with pride
It’s up to me to
To apologise to you
But the

The one thing I forgot to do
Was I should’ve kissed you

Left you there standing
Not understanding
What I should say
Just turned and walked away
But the

The one thing I forgot to do
Was I should’ve kissed you

i Should've Kissed You

When your world is dark
And fallen apart
You don’t wanna close your eyes
In case the sun wont rise

You said that you’d be with me forever
Forever is till the end of time
How come you’re going on with your life
And it’s the end of mine

It was oh so painful
I can’t get past that day
So much hurt to be inflicted
But it only goes one way
You said things I can’t forgive
Damaged beyond repair
I thought that you loved me
Turns out you didn’t care

When your world is dark
And fallen apart
You don’t wanna close your eyes
In case the sun wont rise

You said that you’d be with me forever
Forever is till the end of time
How come you’re going on with your life
And it’s the end of mine

You said it took courage
To do what you have done
But I’m left here empty
Because you are gone
So many things I needed to know
Some I didn’t need to hear
The fact you’re going away
You made perfectly clear

It all hit me so hard
That it makes me sick
So many problems
That can’t be fixed

When your world is dark
And fallen apart
You don’t wanna close your eyes
In case the sun wont rise

You said that you’d be with me forever
Forever is till the end of time
How come you’re going on with your life
And it’s the end of mine

Happiness is over
Happiness is over for me
The sunsets on my life
The pain you can’t see
Happiness is over
Happiness is over for me
You walk away scott free
While I’m stuck in purgatory

When your world is dark
And fallen apart
You don’t wanna close your eyes
In case the sun wont rise

You said that you’d be with me forever
Forever is till the end of time
How come you’re going on with your life
And it’s the end of mine
