Lyrics

Crashing Down To Zero


So don't you think we're worth it

Nothing is ever that perfect

You said that you just can't stay

Nothing I can say to change your mind


You only want to keep it sweet

Save us slipping to a hopeless fate

Think about what you’re saying

Can’t stop your body straying


We always made the best team

And boy you know just what I mean

And now you want to break it

Throw it back at the one who made it


Go on then take it take one for the team

Go on then break it break it up with me

World's gonna come crashing down

World's gonna come crashing down to zero


So that's it then, you're leaving

Steal away and you’re thieving

from my heart, in shattered pieces

I'm feeling mixed emotions


Can't find a reason to fight for it

Gotta fly and say goodbye to this

Well, go take your wings and shove them

Do I give, baby it's a crying shame


I guess I'll understand in time your reasons

Right now there's nothing that makes any sense

Give me something I can cling to

Do you really think that you're a hero


We always made the best team

And boy you know just what I mean

And now you want to break it

Throw it back at the one who made it


Go on then take it take one for the team

Go on then break it break it up with me

World's gonna come crashing down

World's gonna come crashing down to zero






Goodwill towards all man (Take my hand)


Can you hear the bells are ringing

Christmas in the air tonight

Can you hear the bells are singing

Singing out goodwill towards all man


And can you hear the desperate crying

Crying in the air tonight

People beg with hopeful hearts and

Singing out all across the land


I'm reaching out my arms to you

I'm holding out my life to you

Take my pride and dry my tears

Don’t want that ringing in my ears


Take my hand, take my hand

Singing out good will towards all man

All I have is all I am

Please take my, please take my hand


Can’t go home, a battle’s raging

Nothing there that's left for me

Hit the road to keep from dying

Leading to what waits for me


All the children cold and hungry

Crying in the air tonight

A shattered future all around them

Never knowing what’s next to come


I'm reaching out my arms to you

I'm holding out my life to you

Take my pride and dry my tears

Don’t want that ringing in my ears


Take my hand, take my hand

Singing out good will towards all man

All I have is all I am

Please take my, please take my hand


Take my child and give him warmth and peace inside

Take my tears together we'll stand side by side

Pray for peace and ring those Christmas bells tonight

Pray for peace and sing it out tonight


I'm reaching out my arms to you

I'm holding out my life to you

Take my pride and dry my tears

Don’t want that ringing in my ears


Take my hand, take my hand

Singing out good will towards all man

All I have is all I am

Please take my, please take my hand



Lazy Boy, Lazy Girl


Lazy boy lazy girl sitting on the sofa

Move your butt and get yourself to school

Lazy boy lazy girl sitting on the sofa

Move your butt and go and see the world


You should put your brain to some use

Don’t act like life’s just one big joke

You say you got no energy

A robot future is all you see


Wake up, wake up, you lazy kids

Take your chance and grab it by the balls

If you just watch life passing by

Your battery life is sure to die


Lazy boy lazy girl sitting on the sofa

Got your head stuck to your iphone

Lazy boy lazy girl sitting on the sofa

Shift a gear you’re looking like a clone


Soak it up, let your brain take the strain from breathing

Change your thinking and you can have it all

Got to pay your way so you can have your day

Make it happen, listen to what I say.


You should put your brain to some use

Don’t act like life’s just one big joke

You say you got no energy

A robot future is all you see


Wake up, wake up, you lazy kids

Take your chance and grab it by the balls

If you just watch life passing by

Your battery life is sure to die


Lazy boy lazy boy you're such a silly lazy boy

Lazy girl lazy girl you're such a silly lazy girl




Break-Ups Happen All The Time

Thougtless Days


Just a moment to be with me 

A time I shall treasure forever 

How can I regret or ever forget

The love that we shared so dear 


Now that you’re gone from my life 

all I want you to know is 

whilst time heals the burning pain   

in my life you will always remain 


You said goodbye with no relent   

A worthless decade lost in time 

I bear the scars of bullets spent 

You found me guilty of the crime 


Those thoughtless days I’ve laid to rest   

I have moved to pastures new   

And all the anger I expressed   

            Calmer waters now run through               

       

My share of blame I can’t deny   

Though blame’s a word that’s so misused 

‘Takes two to Tango’, can’t you see 

How could you get it so confused 


The artist in you paints the scene 

Always the victim in your mind   

You reduced the love I gladly gave 

to it simply being kind 


There’s a cost to pay for giving love so freely

I’ve paid my dues and learned a thing or two

There’s strength to gain from looking in the mirror

I hope the future brings what’s really true


You said goodbye with no relent 

A worthless decade lost in time 

I bear the scars of bullets spent

You found me guilty of the crime 


Those thoughtless days I’ve laid to rest   

I have moved to pastures new   

And all the anger I expressed   

Calmer waters now run through





Pay My Debt To Jesus


Charlie wants the latest iphone

Sister wants designer clothes

Don't know how I’m gonna tell them

Those bills are piling high


Didn’t see the wise men coming

Tinsel sharks they prey on me

Soon we’ll hear the sleigh bells ringing

Saint Nick can’t tell me why


Need to face my reality

Toughen my heart so my head can breathe

It's not about giving , I've got to keep living

The festive feeling’s hypnotising me


Here’s to another make-do Christmas

With plastic smiles that hide the tears

I’ve got to pay my debt to Jesus and make it right for them I swear

I’ve got to pay my debt to Jesus and make it right for them I swear


Ads we see on television

Let the fat cats sing their song

Dressed to the nines in sugar coats

and we all sing along


Caught up in the sparkling season

I kid myself I still believe

It's a trap when the bait is down

Let’s take this show to town


I should swallow all my foolish pride

And cast away this fake disguise

But oh dear God it's  so worth it for

a jam packed sack of promised lies


Need to face my reality

Toughen my heart so my head can breathe

It's not about giving , I've got to keep living

The festive feeling’s hypnotising me


Here’s to another make-do Christmas

With plastic smiles that hide the tears

I’ve got to pay my debt to Jesus and make it right for them I swear

I’ve got to pay my debt to Jesus and make it right for them I swear



My Special Love


All the world is waiting for one day

Sing happy Christmas everywhere

But the happiness inside me is drowning

With the same tears every year


‘Cause for me there’s something missing

It’s the piece to fill this aching gap

The one thing that would give to me

More joy than all the gifts I’ve wrapped.



My special love, the one

to fill my heart and soul

My special love, the one

to make me feel whole. My special love



I get invited to the parties on the block

with my plus one invitation

But I never seem to meet the one

who deserves accreditation


What can I do to change the situation

My love I cry out for salvation

Patience won't you teach me

not to guarantee my expectations


My special love, the one

to fill my heart and soul

My special love, the one

to make me feel whole. My special love


Take away the tinsel and the icing on the cake

No need to max my credit card for happiness that's fake

If my commitment is in question

I can't let it dominate


My special love, the one

to fill my heart and soul

My special love, the one

to make me feel whole. My special love


My special love, the one

to fill my heart and soul

My special love, the one

to make me feel whole. My special love


Silence Of The Streets


Spirits of angel’s in the night

Filling my head with thoughts that will not go                     

I'm walking along with eyes so wide     

The streets where I'm walking have claimed my soul  

                

All of the signs have me confused         

Just want to find a way to go home          

Can't seem to shake this chaperone            

Do I deserve that point of view of yours                                          

Fight or flight it's ok        

Shame on you for thinking that way        

Are you gonna listen to me        

This is not a playground you see                 

 

I'm breaking the silence of the streets             

Claiming the right to freedom safe and sound         

My voice is a beacon that will shine             

I'm not someone that you can just push around                                     

Just because you feel so insecure               
Doesn't mean you get to fool around            
Engage your muscle with your brain              

Think before you act and rein it in                                 

                                                                         

Yes our forefathers got it wrong

It’s been going on for far too long

Time now to change that train of thought

Don’t tell me that I’ve missed the point 

 

Fight or flight it's ok        

Shame on you for thinking that way        

Are you gonna listen to me        

This is not a playground you see

 

I'm breaking the silence of the streets             

Claiming the right to freedom safe and sound         

My voice is a beacon that will shine             

I'm not someone that you can just push around

 

Don't look behind you, you don't want to know

I'm so sorry, I just want to come home           

It's not always daughters that you need to educate

Why cant you just leave me, leave me alone             

                                          

I'm breaking the silence of the streets             

Claiming the right to freedom safe and sound         

My voice is a beacon that will shine             

I'm not someone that you can just push around
