I've only got myself to blame
I never meant to cause you pain
When I knocked on your door all those years ago
I couldn't have known
that one day I would lose you

chorus

Losing you I'm losing you
i'm losing you I know
You have to go
you have to leave
just leave me alone to grieve

verse

you say you're not in love anymore
sometimes I wish I hadn't knocked on your door
at least I wouldn't feel this pain
of one day losing you

repeat chorus

bridge

Don't know which way up I'm facing
your hands are slipping,
escaping from my grip
so please be quick
and leave me alone to grieve

verse

I've only got myself to blame
I never meant to put out the flame
you opened the door and let me in
to let my life finally begin
but now I'm losing you

repeat chorus

verse

I've only got myself to blame
for causing you all this pain
I guess it's self inflicted
the door has finally closed
please just leave me alone to grieve

Leave me alone to grieve

Where has all the music gone
all the individuality
from the music industry
where is the meaning in a song
it's been lost for a golden gong
artists mime and dance and prance
and do anything for the chance
to rule the world with a one hit wonder
which leaves all gifted people to ponder
how can they get heir kicks
lets get back to the basics

chorus

Back to the basics with your songs
just forget about all the gongs
forget about how good you look
in front of the camera
who gives a fxxx
as long as a lyric has some meaning
forget about all the screaming
there's only one way to get your kicks
get back to the basics

verse

Where has all the music gone
all the meaning behind your songs
bands today, cannot play
they just mime and dance and prance
and have given up the chance
to rule the world with a song of wonder
to write a line that people will ponder
you will only get your kicks
if you get back to the basics

repeat chorus

Back to the basics...….

verse

Where has all the music gone
all the individuality
from the music industry
you only copy what's gone before
as long as it gets them on the dancefloor
to sing and dance and prance
and marvel at your artificial wonder
and leaves them no time to ponder
all they have is an artificial kick
until you get back to the basics

Back to the basics.....

If I could write the perfect love song what would it say?
it would say how I need you everyday
how the sun shines whenever you smile
lighting up the words in every line
saying how much I miss you when you're not there
that not being with you is too much to bare

chorus

This perfect love song was written for you
to show you how much my love is true
many songs have been written in times gone by
some so sad they would make you cry
whenever we're apart and you need the love we share
just sing this song and I will be there

verse

If I could write the perfect love song what would it say?
it would say how you blow the clouds away
to let the sun shine in a clear blue sky
lighting up the words and making them rhyme
saying I would be nothing without you with me
that us being together was meant to be

chorus

this perfect love song was written for you
to show you how much my love is true
many songs have been written in times gone by
some so sad they would make you cry
whenever we're apart and you need the love we share
just sing this song and I will be there

bridge

I think I have written the perfect love song
people may tell me that I'm wrong
all I know is that whenever you smile
the sun comes out and begins to shine
lighting up the words in every line
so you can see them and begin to sing
knowing that our love means everything

verse

This perfect love song was written for you
someday everyone will know the tune
many songs have been written in times gone by
some so sad they would make you cry
whenever we're apart and you need the love we share
just sing this song and I will be there.

The Perfect Love Song

There's nothing here I can understand
I sit alone with a pen in my hand
writing words that no one will see
trying to set myself free
from this daily routine of being alone
how can I call this existence a home

Chorus

Writing letters that I never send
to my imaginary friends
my pen hits the paper
and before the ink is dry
I break down and start to cry
when will this torment ever end
I only have myself as a friend

verse 2

There's nothing here for me anymore
I stop writing, the pen hits the floor
with tears in my eyes I can no longer see
my words staring back, laughing at me
I reach for the gun, is it my only release
if I pull the trigger, will I finally find peace?

chorus

writing letters that I never send
to my imaginary friends
my pen hits the paper
and before the ink is dry
i break down and start to cry
when will this torment ever end
I only had my self as a friend

Release

With tears in my eyes, I write these words
in all these years I didn't learn
to love like I had been in return
now I've lost you

Chorus

Someone else's arms are holding you tight
someone else's lips kiss you goodnight
some else is loving you tenderly
that someone else isn't me

verse 2

These tears in my eyes will never fade
I will always remember the day you walked away
I still love you every single day
but I've lost you

chorus

Someone else's arms are holding you tight
someone else's lips kiss you goodnight
someone else is loving you tenderly
that some one else isn't me

bridge

But I treated you with disrespect
so whatever else can I expect
but for you to let me go
and find love in someone else's arms

verse 3

With tears in my eyes I say goodbye
I want you to remember how much I loved you
can you find a way back to love me too
or have I lost you

Someone else's arms are holding you tight
someone else's lips kiss you goodnight
someone else will love you tenderly
that some one else will never be me
