14 Verses 04:26
14 VERSES I didn’t see him coming but I sure did see him go Like the light that dies in summer with the coming of a winter snow Its confusing me I found him in a scratch card that I picked up off the street I thought I might have won a tenner but then millions fell in front of my feet Its confusing me He didn’t come alone though he came riding in a side car With a distant gentleman who I refused to take seriously Now he's confusing me I must not entertain him lest I compromise myself And anything that may arise from compromising his emotional health He's already confused and I don’t need confusing anymore His skins the kind of skin that drives me up the fucking wall Its like it closes in around me and transports me up to heaven And his eyes are like dreams that are using me God its confusing me I want to feel him cradled up against me I wanna feel his fears release inside my grip and just for the night Let him use me Well Im confused and I am carefully protecting without thinking what could be If I imagine he was mine and could pack up and live with me If I let too many ideas present themselves in front of me We’ll get confused and into trouble and it will not be the first time Theres a million conversations going on inside my head About the reasons why I should or shouldn’t get you into bed And if my beds our destination then theres things we’ve overlooked And the way your looking at me now its clear that we are fucked I didn’t see him coming but I sure did see him go I didn’t see him coming onto me and now I know Why he didn’t close the door when he walked away He wants me to follow him and I want him to stay I want him to pretend just for a while I am in his bed And life was easy and he knew that it was me he loved instead And then wake up from the dream and go back to the man he's perfect for This fairytales amusing me but fuck its confusing So baby think of me with fondness think of me with you And let your body daydream with those big old eyes so blue We were not to be its not our destiny I didn’t see you coming but I wanted you to be the one Who’d finally get down upon his knee and make an honest man of me I see our future and its shining brightly You’re not ready for me, i'm ready for you Our universes aren’t aligned, our timing, well, its not in time So fuck the happy ending but I wish it all so well I am a much better man for having met you what the hell You would be better off inside of me than skirting my periphery But love you from afar I will and not assume you’ll come for me But I wish you all you want and if one day that should be me I cant promise I’ll be single but I promise you that I will be Everything you ever wanted, everything you need and Love Will Win

Wake Up 04:49
Wake up Wake chop your breakfast out on a plate White boys wait looking for ways to dissipate Seven days make a week wait whats the date? Its been 6 weeks that’s 42 days Blues come through me, wait Don’t do me anything other than another favour you’ve lost me Brains not awake yet wake me up Wake up wake up wake up wake up Ive seen forty two moons turn into the sun Forty two boys dancing to noise in a club clubs don’t stop but they always end too soon one wait theres the sun wheres the fucking moon gone? Ive had forty two lives over six weeks six times forty two, two hundred and fifty two beats listened to drugs don’t stop but they always end too soon One boy waits in line the emergency room spins like a ball Like a disco hall go go get a vice lose a virtue Nice boys don’t but the bad ones hurt you Im on a lad, ladder climbing up high trying to get higher this is fucking genius Im in every element ever made Ace club heart spade Diamonds will die but the beat just wont fade The beat just wont fade

BETTER THINGS Im playing a part that im not sure I was born to play But still I act away like somethings gonna come of it Life doesn’t owe you anything that’s what they say So act like you're ok but you wish you knew a little bit If this continues to bring up other things Im gonna have to find my heart better things If this continues to feel like shit Im gonna have to find my heart better things  Than what im giving it The cat didnt die on his own it was curiosity That set the sucker free looking for a better way Six of my lives might've been precarious and free I'll live this final three like ive got nine more left If this continues to bring up other things Im gonna have to find my heart better things If this continues to feel like shit Im gonna have to find my heart better things  Than what im giving it No letting go till it stops Oh here we go will it stop? No letting go till it stops Oh here we go will it stop?
