Track Name: Together
I heard your back door key about three fifteen
Oh-oh baby tell me where you been
You were creeping up the stairs tryin’ to make no noise
I knew by that you’d been out with the boys
No matter what they say - I think that we should stay
No matter what they say -I think that we should stay together, together

I try so hard, I can’t do nothing right
We all know that black is black you tell me it’s white
When I do something wrong you get so mad at me
You spend all my money on retail therapy
No matter what they say - I think that we should stay
No matter what they say- I think that we should stay together, together

You tell me I’m a fool, you’re right as a rule
I don’t care who has lost or who has won
What can I believe, why should I leave
When making up is so much fun

I can’t help being what I am
Its my little X and Y that make me a man
You keep on looking, babe, for beef on the bone
Nothing on the streets you can’t get at home
No matter what they say - I think that we should stay
No matter what they say- I think that we should stay together, together
Track Name: Hélène
The band was blowing hot at the Rose & Crown,
Way down at the Tesco’s end of town
I was searching through a fag smoke haze
Just looking for your green-eyed gaze
I should never have seen you after the band,
The other big mistake was holding your hand
A stolen kiss at your back door just left me wanting so much more
Helene – you caught me at a bad time
Helene – I needed someone to be mine

I had seen you walking in the street, exactement mon phenotype
Something about you struck a chord, hormonal switch on, oh Lordy Lord
Daffodils on the desk did it for me, perfumed attractants, a perfect key
Turned and temped by the promise of treats
Like giving a child a bag of new sweets.
Helene – je pense que je t’aime
Helene – j’espere gue toi meme

Your crazy accent drives me wild, the things you say just make me smile
Linked arm in arm along the pier, I know I’ll always keep you near
Watching full moon across the sea, me for you and you for me
Who’s to say where this will end, we both gotta lot of love to spend

Helene – you caught me at a bad time
Helene – I needed someone to be mine
Helene – you stole this man’s heart
Helene – right from the very start
Track Name: Letters
Why the hell did you burn all my letters?
Why the hell did you burn all those letters?
Did you think it would make you feel better?
Letters from lovers, letters from family
Letters from long lost friends who used to write to me
Your jealousy was burning like a naked flame
My past life can’t hurt you, you know it’s not to blame
Why the hell did you burn all my letters?
Why the hell did you burn all those letters?
Did you think it would make you feel better?

Your drinking drove me crazy, that whiskey made you mad
But your loving was like honey spread all across my bread
There was just too much bitterness messing with your head
And burning all my letters killed my love stone dead, stone dead

Why the hell did you burn all my letters?
Why the hell did you burn all those letters?
Did you think it would make you feel better?
Pretty picture postcards and special birthday notes
Memories of loving and poems my friends wrote
Personal or impersonal you didn’t seem to care
You just burned everything that you found there
Why the hell did you burn all my letters?
Why the hell did you burn all my letters?
Did you think it would make you feel better?

Your drinking drove me crazy, that whiskey made you mad
But your loving was like honey spread all across my bread
There was just too much bitterness messing with your head
And burning all my letters killed my love stone dead
Track Name: Wing mirror
As we stood in your front porch I knew I’d break your heart
I could not look you in the eye, when I told you we must part
I never should have left you, I see that clear as day
But we cannot turn the clock back, time only works one way

Driving away in my old car I saw you stumbling behind
Weeping and wailing in my wing mirror
I tried to convince myself that it must be for the better
But I saw you weeping and wailing in my wing mirror

Your Papa was a kindly man, treated people like he ought’a
But he never liked this scruffy sod who went out with his daughter
I wish I’d never left you, but I saw no other way
And we cannot turn the clock back, time only works one way

Your Mama never liked me, she doesn’t like me still
I remember that she said she thought I looked like Buffalo Bill
I never should have left you, I see that clear as day
But we cannot turn the clock back, time only works one way

Driving away in my old car I saw you stumbling behind
Weeping and wailing in my wing mirror
I tried to convince myself that it must be for the better
But I saw you weeping and wailing in my wing mirror

I know I made a big mistake but it seemed right at the time
I know I broke your big warm heart, now someone’s broken mine
I wish I’d never left you, but I saw no other way
And we cannot turn the clock back, time only works one way
Yes, time only works one way
Track Name: Too good to be true
Your kissing sure don’t do me no good
No, your kissing sure don’t do me no good
Your loving’s like a poison gets right in my blood

Hey, what’s inside of you
Hey, what’s inside of you
You say that you love me but it’s just too good to be true

Too good to be true, too good to be true
Too good to be true, too good to be true
Too good to be true, too good to be true
Too good to be true, too good to be true
You say that you love me but it’s just too good to be true

Woman, can’t you leave me be
Woman, can’t you leave me be
My body seems to need you but my soul just wants to be free

Just want to be free, just want to be free
Just want to be free, just want to be free
Just want to be free, just want to be free
Just want to be free, just want to be free
My body seems to need you but my soul just wants to be free
