Track Name: Seven Year Itch
I never thought it could end up like this
It seems we’ve got nothing left to say
The radio broke when the DJ played our song
Every ounce of confetti’s blown away

Try as we might
We can’t help but fight
She’s led all your loving astray
Why can’t you see?
It’s still you and me
And we don’t belong to yesterday

I think that you’re scratching a seven year itch
She’s making you wish that we’d never got hitched
It’s a crying shame
There’s no one to blame
But you

I don’t know why it has ended like this
Such heartache that we can’t rewind
You’ve emptied your drawers, packed your bags, I’ll change the locks
The papers are practically signed

You say goodbye
But no tears I cry
This feeling, it can’t be defined
But one thing’s for sure
When you walk out that door
I’ll be praying that you change your mind
Track Name: The Boy Next Door
The boy moved in next door in ‘85
It was the first day of the rest of my life
The kind of boy that made the girls go wild
With a wicked sense of humour
And dimples when he smiled

One summer night before the night turned dark
The boy next door asked me to take him for a picnic in the park
I made some sandwiches
The boy next door brought booze and cigarettes
And a whole load of regrets
To plague me from time to time

And he said if you think you’ve got a chance in hell
The sun has gone right to your head
You’re not the girl that suits me well
You won’t be sleeping in my bed
But when the wine was almost empty
He made love to me plenty
And whispered that he cared

Convinced myself that we were more than friends
He kissed me on the lips and told me that our love would never end
But he was sleeping with the girl who wore the flower in her hair
She had no sense of humour
He didn’t seem to care

The boy next door got married, had a child
Moved to the country
And forgot about the days when we were wild
I’m not his honey
But I’ll always miss the dimples when he smiles
He said he’d keep in touch
But now it’s been a while

But I still love the boy next door
Track Name: The One That Got Away
So long ago you can’t remember
So long ago you’d rather forget
You said goodbye to me
And small town mentality
Nothing to lose, gotta leave it all behind

Pastures green, new horizons
Adrenalin rushes day by day
Who cares about me?
Filled with endless possibilities
You had the good sense not to stay

The one that got away
The one that got away

Catch a train, hitch a ride
Leave the town you can’t abide
Don’t give me a second thought
Put this hell hole far behind
Until you find another
Good luck, I wish you well

Pass me the bucket, I feel sick
And kill all the lovers joined at the hip
Mundane conversations
Insignificant observations
I daren’t shut my eyes in case I miss anything
Track Name: Anyway
You never told me that my hair smells nice
In fact you’ve never looked at me twice
You never thought of writing me a song
You never once admitted you were wrong
Never held my hand in public
Never brightened up my day
But you insist you love me anyway

You never wanted dinner with my folks
You never laughed at my unfunny jokes
You never woke me to make love at night
Why do they all think you’re my Mr Right?
Never held my hand in public
Never brightened up my day
But you insist you love me anyway

You never sat through films that you don’t like
I never rode behind you on your bike
You never made me compilation tapes
When I was sick, you never brought me grapes
Never held my hand in public
Never brightened up my day
But you insist you love me anyway

You say that this is sentimental crap
And you’re not a sentimental kind of chap
You’ll never shower me with affection
You’ll never brighten up my day
But you insist you love me
You insist you love me
You insist you love me anyway
Track Name: Sparkling Eyes
You see the fire burning in my eyes
And in your eyes I see desire
You see the fire burning in my eyes
And in your eyes I see desire

And it’s good to look at you in the morning
It’s good to make you smile
And it’s good to look at you in the morning
it’s good to make you smile

I see the fire burning in your eyes
And in my eyes you see desire
I see the fire burning in your eyes
And in my eyes you see desire

I really don’t know why I put these words in this song
Maybe I try to look like those folkers you like
It is not sure cos feelings are so strong
But I enjoy so much playing you these songs
And we are here to sing them all along
And surely why we’re sharing this with you

At night when we dreamed together
We created a purple power
At night when we dreamed together
With my green and your blue
Track Name: Unhappy Hour
Academic genius, first time away from home
Prestigious university, the world was his to own
He had to snap up the opportunity
Time to face up to reality

Alcopops, tuition fees, they gave them out for free
Wasted days spent studying the birds and the bees
Those drunken nights with his fraternity
Now TV dinners his reality

Those were the days he’ll always treasure
Never new things could turn so sour
A lifetime’s worth of happy hours
But no one’s smiling now

The smell of patchouli, Beatrice Dalle on the wall
Half-hearted scribbled poetry, the moustache said it all
He graduated with a Mickey Mouse degree
Now telesales are his reality

Lying in ‘til 2pm, the pub for Sunday roast
Another skipped tutorial, a quick spin up to the coast
He didn’t take us so seriously
Now on-line dating is his reality
