Hanging around just waiting For my leaves to fall The people used to notice me When I was 3 feet tall I miss the days they carved their Names into my skin Why do I stay the same When everything is changing One of these days I will wake and there’ll be blue birds singing Hope Doesn’t have to fade Just open up your eyes You’ll find that love will find a way Now it seems I’m losing friends They’re being turned to stone There’s nothing like the autumn time To make a boy feel old. It’s getting hard to breath The air has so much in. Why must I stay the same When everything is changing One of these days I will wake and there’ll be blue birds singing Hope Doesn’t have to fade Just open up your eyes You’ll find that love will find a way If your sun don’t shine your leaves will fall So send my roots down low Cos I know soon that. One of these days I will wake and there’ll be blue birds singing Hope Doesn’t have to fade Just open up your eyes You’ll find that love will find One of these days I will wake and there’ll be blue birds singing Hope Doesn’t have to fade Just open up your eyes You’ll find that love will find a way

Movies Suck 03:11
I’ve watched too many films They all taste the same They fall in love, fall apart Then fall together again. But love she ain’t that She says “its hard to get back on track” She says “There are some things that you can’t take back” And I know It sucks We’re not in the movies, we’re not in a movie I’m out of luck We’re not in the movies, we’re not in a movie I’ve watched too many scenes Where sex is instantly great They hit the spots right away No impotent mistakes But sex she ain’t like that She says “first could you rub my back” she says “oh, it don’t work like that but you’re on the right track" It sucks We’re not in the movies, we’re not in a movie I’m out of luck We’re not in the movies, we’re not in a movie I’ve met love and I’ve met sex I want them both with no regrets No empty beds or dear dave texts Yet every time I board a plane My head is filled with thoughts insane Of seeing you run through departures Flanked either side by cupids archers You movie makers aren’t my friends Cos the truth I’ve found is that love, she ain't my friend. It sucks We’re not in a movie, we’re not in a movie I’m out of luck We’re not in the movies, we’re not in a movie It sucks We’re not in the movies, we’re not in a movie I’m out of luck We’re not in the movies, we’re not in a movie

Now picture the scene I'm at weather spoons with friends Cheap drinks so the rounds come again and again Suddenly the men lower their pints and go quiet The orange brigade have arrived Its an average night where the outcomes the same So I make for the bar just to shake up my day I can't help but laugh at this new friend I've made She glowing, shes a fraud, shes a fake. When did it start This stupid obsession with how we look And when did they start Those insecure feelings That makes us want to be someone else And why should we care? In my head I had this woman all sussed out there and then Her name, her job, and the jobs of her friends So I give her a bit of charm, I give it all I've got "Hello love, how you doing? do you come here a lot?" Oh what a fool, what a cock I have been I just judged someone by the colour of their skin Her name was Claudette, she had a law degree She rubbed my bald head before saying to me: "When did this start? This stupid obsession with how we all look When did you start? Those insecure feelings that make you judge someone else Why do you care?" And I'll never get Making all of that effort Just to take away a look that is true And isn't it sad That I'll assume that you'll be Like those dicks on tv that aren't you And I'll be wasting my time Saying you'll look better When you can say the same to me And I don't understand The point of fake tan But if I judge what a fool I would be. When did it start This stupid obsession with how we look And when did they start Those insecure feelings That makes us want to be someone else And why should we care?

My oh my, a beautiful child A beautiful child with big wide eyes So much love, I can’t get enough I love to see you smile Watch you grow, discover your toes Stare out the window and grab my nose You appear to live without fear Just going with the flow. I won’t wish all your life away I wonder what you’ll be I hope the worlds much better than today I guess we will see But right now, you don’t give a cow Just wondering how those wheels go round Nice new trick, you’re learning real quick Get up when you fall down. Wave your arms, and learn how to charm It tickles my heart, watching you dance What’s that look? I’ll read you your book Curious from the start. I want you to look up to me I want to make you proud I’ll try and show you where hard work can lead Am I being too loud Not a peep, you’re trying to sleep When it is complete, you’ll want to eat Just like me, food makes you happy Eat anything we see. You’re getting so much bigger every day But Don’t grow up too fast okay. Dream big things, and spread out your wings And try not to whinge, let your voice sing My advice, is try to be nice It doesn’t cost a thing. So just smile, and laugh all the while You beautiful child with big wide eyes When we part, it tugs on my heart Nobody likes goodbyes. a beautiful child I love you.
