Track Name: Dave Giles - Butter Love
At the age of 18 can one profess
A dying love for someone else
When so young,
When so much to live for

And I know she wants me now
But she won't in a while
I'm growing older
I'm getting balder

Destined to be in love
But when she goes out
I fear she'll find someone better
Even just for a second

And that's all she'll need to break me
That's all the time it takes

But I love her...
Yeah I love her
Yeah I love, I love, I love, I love, love her
And I can't help it,
No I can't help it

Discussing baby names and marriage dates when I was her age
I had no facial hair
And people always change
But she swears that she never will
But she will for a second

And that's all she'll need to break me
That's all the time it takes

Yeah I love her...
Yeah I love her
Yeah I love, I love, I love, I love, love her
And I can't help it,

And I can't help but want her around
And I can't keep my feet on the ground
She's the life of my party
She's the light in the crowd
And I can't help but want her to stay
Yet I can't keep my demons away
I know that she'll see sense,
And leave me some day.

But I love her...
Yeah I love her
Yeah I love, I love, I love, I love, love her
And I can't help it,
Track Name: Danny Gruff - Time (She Is Cruel)
As a boy, I would dream
And plan how my life would be
How naive I was to think
I'd want kids by 23

And my wife, I would meet
Whilst we were skiving off PE
O the Innocence of youth
Think I'd meet her ages 13

Time, She is cruel
She can make fools of us all
She don't sleep, stop to eat
She'll have you begging at her feet
But with time, we will grow
And what will we have to show?
Only she can tell

It was once, said to me
By a pretty candle thief
We are all guna die
So have fun, make memories

But for now, let me say
Things don't always go my way
Keep on living, keep on trying
Keep my head up come what May
Track Name: Nan Said "Romance Is Dead"
My old Nan said, she thinks that romance is dead,
Now its all talking on your phones and sex before you wed.
There ain't no wining or dining, just flirting on the internet instead.

As right as she might be, that doesn't sound like me.
I like to take a girl to dinner if its buy one get one free
And later ask to kiss her, invite her back to Dave's for cups of tea.

When I've done something wrong,
I'll sing her her favourite song,
And try not to sing out of key.
No matter what my nan said
Romance isn't dead.

Its easy to see with all the sex on tv,
that my nan came to conclude there is no chivalry.
So I'm going to write a letter
and address it to the sluts on MTV.

I won't ask her to sleep with me,
when i take to toby carvary
And buy her a pudding as well.
No matter what my nan said
Romance isn't dead
Track Name: Dave Giles - Secret
It started out as lust
And soon turned to a kiss
The odds were against us
As we progressed to this
Holding hands at night
And sharing single beds
If love tears us apart
I’ve started seeing red
And I’ll keep you a secret and I won’t tell
And I will be the secret that you can’t kill

Try and find the words
to get you round to mine
To him I’m just a clown
He doesn’t see between the lines
You’ll never be my queen
I’ve known that from the start
And if the light never goes out
I’m still standing in the dark
And will be your secret and I won’t tell
And I will be the secret that you can’t kill

After all this time
Does it eat away at you
When you’re lying in his bed
Do you kiss him
the way you kiss me
So until you find the error in your ways
I will be the secret that you won’t kill.
Track Name: Danny Gruff - The Boy Who Gets The Girl
Its always been hard to write sad songs
To correct my mistakes and right all my wrongs
But today these words came my way
Ive loved and I've lost, many lines I have crossed
My songs may seem forward, they connect all the dots
but this time, the story is easy to rhyme

Im not looking for a fairytale
A cheap spin off for me will be fine
just a girl who drinks whiskey
she don't need to turn water to wine
I'm not looking for a princess
just a girl who'd get drunk with my mum/hard with me
be a boy who gets the girl
then maybe this don't need to rhyme

I may act persausive, and sometimes complacent
I hope there's someone, who's almost adjacent
To me, in each kind of way
I never have cheated, and I'm not defeated
But lately it seems, my faith's depleted
In Love, What would Mr Darcy Do?
