Track Name: Straight In Your Face (NYC Mix)
If you were more like I wanted you to be I’d find this easy
I would pass you with flying colours and stars so big
They’d be blinding folk for miles and they would be all be smiling walking about
Cos I’d finally figured you out

Don’t you see Im not finding this easy
Don’t you see what your doing to me?

Chorus
This could all be easier easier than what it is right now
The words I wanna hear are all but birds flying south
The words I wanna hear aren’t coming out your mouth cos ive been looking
Am I lookin in the wrong place? I’ve been lookin straight in your face

I didn’t turn out to be the lover you wanted me to be so lets take things easy
And fuck the confines of this precarious liaison up against the nearest wall

Chorus
This could all be easier easier than what it is right now
The words I wanna hear are all but birds flying south
The words I wanna hear aren’t coming out your mouth cos ive been looking
Am I lookin in the wrong place? I’ve been lookin straight in your face

Don’t you see Im not finding this easy
Don’t you see what your doing to me?

Chorus
This could all be easier easier than what it is right now
The words I wanna hear are all but birds flying south
The words I wanna hear aren’t coming out your mouth cos ive been looking
Am I lookin in the wrong place? I’ve been lookin straight in your face
Track Name: Kidnapped (NYC MIx)
I will fight some sort of a good fight
In the name of what I feel is right
In the midst of this conversation thats been going down tonight
I cant deny, it would be stupid for me to try
But fight I will cos I will not be the guy
Who takes it all and nervously chews upon his lip at this relationship

Facts will not hide
The fiction inside
God knows we never saw it start

If my heart has a lock and I have got this right
You must have dropped your key on your way home last night
Cos a thefts taking place im being kidnapped within
Someones managed to break in


Like with every good murder and every solid lie
You just need a weak link to reveal its alibi
You played the role of my partner but you were absent in the crime
So don’t we kill for company
Just to cement these frail identities
Don’t we kill what we love
Don’t we all kill what we love
Don’t we all kill what we love

Facts will not hide
The fiction inside
God knows we never saw it start

If my heart has a lock and I have got this right
You must have dropped your key on your way home last night
Cos a thefts taking place im being kidnapped within
Someones managed to break in
Someones managed to break in
Track Name: Wake Up (NYC Mix)
Wake up wake chop your breakfast out on a plate
White boys wake looking for ways to dissipate
Seven days make a week wait whats the date
Its been six 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 42 moons turn into the sun
42 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 42 lives over 6 weeks
6 times 42 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 hurts 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
diamonds will die but the beat just wont fade
Track Name: You and Me (Roland Faber and A Boy Called George Mix)
Funny looking life making money looking let then right
make a run for it

Run until you find whatever feels right and then
take a piece of it

funny how you do what you swear you’ll never do i must be
getting older now

inhibitions falling through the blue sky
when my blue eyes landed on this guy


cos you and me want this

you and me do this

you and me fear

that you and me wont get

what you and me still bet’s

ever so clear

you and me did this

you and me hid this

you and me knew

that you and me kissed

and then you and me wished that

you and me could do

what me and you do


wonder where we’ll go if we ever get through this mess

its gon’ be difficult

the more i get of you the less i feel i can do

can do without you

but do what you have to do

but do me first before you do

cos i do think its gonna be hard if you go home without me


funny how a boy gets so bored

when he’s taking it taking it

sometimes you wanna give what you get instead of faking it faking it

if somethings in your way how you gonna get past it past it

just throw your money down

cos loving from the hearts gonna cost you

but its worth every penny that you’ll put down
Track Name: Run Away From New York (NYC Mix)
Im not who I was oh can anyone see the way to get back to me?
Im not who i was i’ve been trying to be something outside me
Im not what I do will someone show me whatever I cant see
Im not who I was but a small tributary who lost his way back to the sea

Run away from New York and go straight back to London
Run away from New York and go straight back to London
Run away from New York and go straight back to London
Run away from New York and go straight back to London

Im not who I do but do who I can see and I do it all selfishly
Im not who I am but aware what you see when you look right through me

Run away from New York and go straight back to London
Run away from New York and go straight back to London
Run away from New York and go straight back to London
Run away from New York and go straight back to London

There I’ll find peace of mind there I’ll be free

Run away from New York and go straight back to London
Run away from New York and go straight back to London
Run away from New York and go straight back to London
Run away from New York and go straight back to London
