Track Name: Cupcake
Why is the first line always the hardest,
In songs like this when i know i've got so much to say.
I wish you could hear me, i wish you could see,
but you'd just say "Stop wishing your wishes away"

But i've got a thousand different songs,
That i could sing to you,
But do you even care, at all.. whoa

So make me a cupcake, or give me a sign,
help me stop guessing whether we're really on this time
Cos everyone knows yeah, we've been here before,
These games we play, are making my head real sore.

But i've got a million different songs,
That i could sing to you,
But do you even care, at all.. whoa

I'm just the other end of the central line,
It's not that far
Track Name: Another Fine Day
Wondering round near Bond Street Station,
Feeding my infatuation with this town
I've been walking for miles with the sun on my back
Not a care in the world despite my lack of money

And the girls look great in their summer clothes
and there's a smile on my face cos its another fine day in London town
La la la London Town, La la la London Town.

I think i'll go to Hyde Park to watch the world go round
and fall asleep on the grass listening to the sounds of this city
I go down to the river to watch the sunset
I must be in luck because there's a hot brunette staring at me.

And the girls look great in their summer clothes
and there's a smile on my face cos its another fine day in London town
La la la London Town, La la la London Town.
And the girls look great in their summer clothes
and there's a smile on my face cos its another fine day in London town

And you've got to love days like this,
When you don't spend a penny but you still get a cheeky kiss
I think i'll take another walk,
I don't have a plan but i'm excited by the thought
Of another fine night in London town
La la la London Town, La la la London Town, La la la London Town,
La la la London Town, La la la London Town,
Track Name: Yeah Buddy
Its 5am, and we're stumbling round this town again,
Trying to find, a place thats selling chicken wings.
We're getting old now, but nights like this don't seem to change,
The night bus home, anmd in the morning, the trumpet sings

Yeah buddy, tonight was such a big night
I spent to much money, but i don't care because i love these big nights with you

Its 3pm, and we're dying watching our favourite film
With our hangover cures, our chocolate milk and our warm duvets
We're getting old now, but days like this don't seem to change
We go back to pub, get the beers in and start over again .

Yeah buddy, tonights gonna be a big night,
I'm not being funny, but i could do this every day.


Whether singing in pubs, or dancing in clubs,
Whether drinking in bars, i don't care where we are
Because i night without you is just not the same,
And i want you to know, I'll go wherever you go,
Cos the things that we do, yeah i'm better with you,
So come drink with me because i think this will be
Another night where we spend too much money.

Yeah buddy, I really want another big night tonight,
Let's spend all our money, on whiskey and wine, and corona with lime and sambuca shots
Yeah buddy, lets dance all night to our favourite songs and sing our hearts out
And if i spend all my money, i won't care because i love these big nights with you.
Track Name: Spicey
Is it strange, that i still remember that first kiss from you,
Yeah its true, I'd been after you for a long time and you knew.

But i really didn't think i had a chance
Of ever even getting close to you.
But i guess it just goes to show
I've never understood girls that well,

Cos i waited, i waited, waited, i waited for you.
Hoping and praying that one day you might want me too.
Yeah i waited, i waited,waited, i waited for you.
And then one night you got drunk, and you kissed me

I wrote you a note, it took me seven drafts and a bottle of red,
But i'm crap with words, but i thought that there was so much that had to be said

And now i don't think i have a chance,
Of getting you back in my arms
you're probably seeing someone else,
cos girls like you get to pick and choose,

Now i'm waiting, i'm waiting, waiting, i'm waiting for you,
Hoping and praying that one day you might want me to,
Yeah i'm waiting, i'm waiting, waiting, i'm waiting for you,
Waiting for you to get drunk, and hopefully kiss me,

And now i don't think i have a chance,
Of getting you back in my arms
you're probably seeing someone else,
cos girls like you get to pick and choose,

Now i'm waiting, i'm waiting, waiting, i'm waiting for you,
Hoping and praying that one day you might want me to,
Yeah i'm waiting, i'm waiting, waiting, i'm waiting for you,
Waiting to see your face come and kiss me,

And now i don't think i have a chance,
Of getting you back in my arms
you're probably seeing someone else,
cos girls like you get to pick and choose,

Now i'm waiting, i'm waiting, waiting, i'm waiting for you,
Hoping and praying that one day you might want me to,
Yeah i'm waiting, i'm waiting, waiting, i'm waiting for you,
Waiting for you to get drunk,
So hurry up and get drunk, and kiss me
Track Name: Steph
It was six hundred and fifty days
from the moment we met to the night in which she put me straight
And she put me straight
I couldn't hide my disappointed eyes from her
Cos I cant see where I went wrong
Where did I go wrong
And why'd she say, "Lets just be friends"

I know that she's said no before,
But in the past I thought that meant try something else
And that's what I did
Someday I might look back and laugh
At all the stupid things I said to win her heart
I didn't win her heart
And now she says "lets just be friends"

And now I'm left just reminiscing
About the days when we were kissing
And the times when you were by my side
And now I know there's no point trying
And there is no denying
I'm never gonna get the things that
I want from her.

So I guess its time to draw the line
And try and find a girl that really wants me too
Could it be you?
Or maybe I misheard her words
Or didn't quite understand what she really meant by them
What did she mean
When she said lets just be friends
Track Name: Penny Jar
It's been a bad month,
I had to count out my penny jar, in order to pay my phone bill
And I've only myself to blame,

As I've had some crazy nights,
And though I've got no regrets, I think I need to learn how to say no,
I can't afford another round tonight.

And now I sing,
Whooooaaaa, this dream may someday fade,
But I'm poor and I'm happy, and gladly I'll stay this way.

There must be more to life,
Than working for money in order to pay your taxes.
But some people don't seem to care,

Maybe I'll settle down,
And do as my brother says, get married, have kids, get a proper job.
But that would mean finding a girl..

And now I sing,
Whooooaaaa, this dream may someday fade,
But I'm poor and I'm happy, and gladly I'll stay this way.

I'm sorry if my choices disappoint you.
But there are things that I love to do,
I'll keep playing this guitar hoping one day,
That maybe I'll get lucky, maybe I'll get lucky. Yeah maybe I'll get lucky


Then I'll sing
Whoooaa, this dream can never fade,
Cos my horses came in so I don't have to count out my pennies.
Track Name: Dangermouse
I met her just the other night,
I made my move it seemed to go alright,
I somehow got her back to mine,
We talked all night, losing track of.

Time, its what i don't have.
She was not part of my plan
I was looking for some fun tonight
Oh what a mess i've gone and made

Cos i can see this, taking hold of me
After just one kiss, she's dangerous
Yeah i can feel this, taking hold of me
After just one kiss, cos she's dangerous for me.

I'm gonna take her out next week,
Find a place thats nice and cheap
I'd rather take her to the track
Maybe i could win some

Cash thats what i don't have
She was not part of my plan
I can't afford to fall in love right now
But what use is debt when you're all alone,

Cos i can see this, taking hold of me
After just one kiss, she's dangerous
Yeah i can feel this, taking hold of me
After just one kiss, cos she's dangerous for me.
