Track Name: Intro D'Album Par Encyclopedia
Half my time you've wasted all my time
And no kinda hurt like mine can go away over night
I just wanna be loved like back in '73
Cared for like after the break in
Stick around for the new release, l'album par Encyclopédie

But I'm wall to wall negative energy
You know there's no good music left inside of me
Track Name: Night Bus From Brixton
Night bus from Brixton and Hilary's crying
She's trying to shake the hurt, Oliver and I are afraid of dying
We're all afraid of being alone sometimes
And the streets of London are being pretty unkind

She loves being in control, I'm being walked all over here
Don't tell me, I needn't know, I only hear what I wanna hear

Another night in the city
Another reason why this can never be home
I shouldn't have had that last glass of self pity
Another night alone

She's losing control, I'm feeling awful helpless here
Don't tell me, I needn't know, I only hear what I wanna hear

I needn't know all of the details
My diaphragm's letting me know all I need to know
I'll get the the first bus home tomorrow

I'm not gonna leave her though it's cold and I feel rough
I'm definitely glad I brought my hat and my gloves
I hope Oliver doesn't hate me too much
He'll be cycling through Scotland tomorrow when I wake up

We all love rock 'n' roll
But she likes Zeppelin, we prefer Quo
She loves being in control, I'm being walked all over here
Don't tell me, I needn't know, I only hear what I wanna hear

I needn't know all of the details
My diaphragm's letting me know all I need to know
I'll get the first bus home tomorrow
Yeah, tomorrow
Track Name: Heartache
I've got heartache for you, tonight, my love (Heartache)
And I just can't wait to know if I'm still alright by you (Heartache)
You know the doctor says I'm gonna be alright
He's like, it's nothing I can't control with diet
And I told him I'm trying
I'm trying, but that won't stop my hands shaking
And my heart aching for you, tonight, my love

Heartache, it's true, tonight I've got (Heartache) for you
And that's why someday soon I'm gonna ask you what you wanna do about us
'Cause the counter drugs that people suggested might be a means to an end
But they won't stop me crying, no matter how much I'm trying
They won't stop my hands shaking and my heart aching for you

I wanna wait my time before I let you tell me we're through
But I'm finding it harder to digest all these mixed vibes that I'm getting from you

I've got heartache for you, tonight, my love
And I'm getting in a right state thinking maybe you've had enough
You're only home a few weeks more (I need to see you)
And I'm gonna be out on tour (The day you're leaving)
And I dunno what I want more
But I'm sure that I can't stop my hands shaking or my pulse racing
Like each time's the last time we touch
My hands shaking or my heart aching for you

I can't stop my hands shaking or my pule racing like each time's the last time we touch
My hands shaking or my heart aching for you, tonight, my love
Track Name: 07/08, Difficult Season
You had to get away from home some time
But I'm not home, no, I do not epitomise everything you've left behind
I still go to every home game
I can't afford to go away
But I still get the match report the same, because I care
It's going on even when I'm not there

I'm lonely and I'm not alone
I better not let on

Hard to settle
My mind at battle with your eyes, they're so misleading
Hard to settle
Relegation battle and one time I stopped believing
It's been a difficult season

Closer to the action but the field's gotten smaller
Your horizon's wide open but the sky's much taller
You're excited and I feel that to
And if it doesn't feel the same then there's nothing much I can do
But if you're running away then I wanna run away too

I'm lonely and I'm not alone
I better not let on

Hard to settle
My mind at battle with your eyes, they're so misleading
Hard to settle
Relegation battle and one time I stopped believing
It's been so difficult

August to May, living fast
Trying to make up for the fun I didn't have before we got together
But the crazy nights that my friends recall have left me feeling broken and regretful
And match days weren't much better

I haven't seen the sun all year
And I'm not saying I've been blind since you left but it's been a difficult season

Hard to settle
My mind at battle with your eyes, they're so misleading
Hard to settle
Relegation battle and one time I stopped believing
It's been a difficult, it's been a difficult season
Track Name: Jen's A Model (And I'm A Rocker)
Jen's a model and I'm a model of the one I used to be
So I don't know what's bothering me
You know, if Stephen had his way I'd have been taking names all week
But I don't wanna seem too keen
I'm gonna wait 'til she speaks to me
Don't wanna feel cheap because Jen's a model but it's a lotto meeting her
Maybe she don't wanna meet me

Jen's a model and I've got morals but I'm finding it hard to think
Oh, and I wish I hadn't had so much to drink
And if I'm keeping on that track it's a matter of fact I'll be lonely
And all the people that I meet, I'll forget their names and they won't know me
Jen's a model and I've forgotten
And I'm still wallowing in the back of my garage
This hurts more than I thought

Jen's a model and I'm a rocker
Jen's a model and I couldn't get her if I wanted to
Jen's a model (She's a model) and I'm a rocker
Jen's a model (She's a model) and I couldn't get her if if I wanted to
Track Name: The Singers In The Bands I Like
Kris Rowe lied at the Astoria 2 back in Feb of 03, 4 or 5
He said if I like that girl, a song for her I should write, wait my time, she'll be mine
Well I've tried twice, fallen hard every time
I've gotta stop taking advice from the singers in the bands I like
But it's hard when you consider the time I spent finding new bands
When I should've been out making friends

And it's weird 'cause if you'd seen me that night you'd have asked if I had really tried
And I'm still trying to work out the line between what is wrong and what is right
Well you know as well as I not to waste a great rock song that you write
But I've gotta shut off my green eyes for the singers in the bands I like

Phil's my inspiration tonight
He was a fighter but he wasn't always right
And I like to act like I know about stuff but I've lived a pretty sheltered life
And I'm not that bright and the girls like the literate types
I've gotta start living life if I'm gonna write like the singers in the bands I like
The singers in the bands I like
Track Name: Don't Fret It, Don't Sweat It
Ooh woah, I'll know tomorrow
I'll know tomorrow but I wanna know today
I don't like the things that you told me
And I know they don't compare to the things you didn't say
But I don't like 'em anyway

You say you're OK when you're not OK
And I thought that simple and innocent was how I'd stay
Now that's a pretty dumb thing to say

But little darlin' don't fret it (Don't sweat it)
This'll be the last time that I get left behind
It only hurts if you let it (Don't let it)
Play on your mind

Ooh woah, hard act to follow
But you know me, I'll find a way
I won't wait for this storm to break before I turn around and start it over again

Little darlin' don't fret it (Don't sweat it)
This'll be the last time that I get left behind
It only hurts if you let it (Don't let it)
Play on your mind
And this ain't me
But I'll keep on driving you away from here

I don't know if the way she makes me feel is actually the way that I feel or just the way she makes me feel
'Cause tonight I feel a bit ill
Track Name: Buddy, You Got No Idea
She's my Rushmore, I feel it now more than ever
She says she's free weekend of the 27th
I think that I can be free then
I won't play games 'cause I need this

There'll be no trouble, we've talked things through, we know how each other's feeling
"Oh please Ben, what makes you think you can make it past May?"
Come on, I have to believe it
I won't abide another night home thinking 'bout the way things might've been

Waited so long, now I'm waiting for something to go wrong
Snow is falling back home, she's got those blue jeans on
And I'm waiting for something to go wrong
Waiting for something to go wrong
And then you sang that song
Buddy, you got no idea what you done

Row 7, right side, if I shut my eyes it's almost real for a second
You've still go your ticket and I've still got the words going round in my head
Sometimes it's hard to believe it
She finally sees what I've been seeing
And I need to see her again

Waited so long, now I'm waiting for something to go wrong
Snow is falling back home, her blue eyes shine like the sun reflecting of the moon
And I'm waiting for something to wrong
Waiting for something to go wrong
And then you sang that song
Buddy, you got no idea what you done

I'm wall to wall negative energy
You know there's no good music left inside of me
And all I keep hearing's how it's not what it used to be
You know there's no good music left inside of me
I've had a taste and now it's all gone
I've had a taste it's gone wrong
Woe betides me, I'm so alone, so low, solo
Track Name: The Fine Line
Adam says he'll kill me if I go back
And while I don't think he's capable of that
I know he'd remind me about the way I felt when I first found out

"You're on your own but I don't think you know
How weak you're being, how freakin' low"

Maybe I do, or maybe I don't
But I'm gonna need you when I know

'Cause I'll be fine line walkin' without you to rely on
Fine line walkin' oh
So I'm walkin' away from this fire
But it's a fine line, it's a fine line I'm walkin'

So I'll just sit and wait for this to pass
Work to make the time go fast
And don't talk about this unless you ask
So I don't lead you on

"You're on your own but I don't think you know
How weak you're being, how freakin' low"

Maybe I do, or maybe I don't
But I'm gonna need you when I know

I'll be fine line walkin' without you to rely on
Fine line walkin' oh
So I'm walkin' away from this fire
But it's a fine line without you to rely on
Fine line walkin' oh
So I'm walkin' away from this fire
But it's a fine line, it's a fine line I'm walkin'
