Track Name: Dance to the Music in My Head
Dance to the Music in my Head

Straight in after drums
Come here, join me
I can see it frightens you
To look into my deepest blue yeah
But I'll be watching you from here

Comes down, to this
I can see antennaes twitch
When I overload the switch yeah
But I like living here this way

CHORUS 1: Oh ooh you know
Oooh ooh they know
OOOh no one knows the way
I dance to the music in my head
No pity cause I choose this tune instead

Wear me, tear me
You know the last thing on my mind
Is the feeling I'm maligned yeah
But I hold the hurt so dear to me

(CHORUS 1) +
CHORUS 2: Oh ooh you know
Oooh ooh they know
OOOh no one knows the way
I dance to the beat that I can hear
It delivers me from all there is to fear

M8: Scared I could pull a shiv out
From underneath of my coat
But all I have is my heart
To hold up here to your tho-o-o-at
You swear under your breath
You'll never sink down to this de-e-e-epth
Track Name: Moshi Moshi
Moshi Moshi

You’re in the market for a fairytale
A white horseman that will never fail
To thrill you and intoxicate
You, find a way to
Complicate you
Shatter your sobriety

Can. You. Find an explanation
For. This. Flight-of infatuation
Polish the rose coloured lens
Show off your hand to all your friends
Don’t want to see the pantomime end

But he’s a drain on your pocketbook
He’s got you skinning your knees
Now you’re locked out, lucks out
Who’s he with while you’re without
He’s left you hanging in the breeze
(Moshi Moshi)

He’s come and gone....He’s moving on

Won’t /some/bo\dy\ please \ talk to/ me
Can. You. Find an explanation
For. This. Flight-of infatuation
Pack up all your worldly goods
Find a safer neighbourhood
Push him off his pedestal please
Moshi Moshi
Find a new man....Move to Japan (monotone)
(Moshi Moshi)
Won’t /some/bo\dy\ please \ talk to/ me
Track Name: No Bolt Out of the Blue
Crept up like a sunrise
No snowball in the face
You look at me with my eyes
And you put me in my place

But good things take their time
And now we're intertwined
A life without you there
Impossible to bear

CHORUS: There came no-o-o-o
Bolt out of the Blue
I gave you your breath
But can I handle you
There came no-o-o-o-o
Bolt out of the blue....

Now we fit together
Like summer and Sundays
Like Sleep and stormy weather
Put best laid plans away

But good things take their time
And now we're intertwined
A life without you there
Impossible to bear
Track Name: The Whole Shebang
Once there was a girl
Who dreamt she’d own the world
She learnt The Rules by heart
Now waits for life to start

She thinks cohabitation
Will cause her complication
Romance would be so nice
But she wants the box and dice

Bridge: The future was so bright
But that man was not quite right
And now the future’s here
Closer than it appears

CHORUS:
Yes she wants the whole shebang
The whole to do about I do
Oh you want the whole shebang
Old, borrowed and blue

She lays it on the line
With her piccolo of wine
Before it even starts
It’s undo death do part

+ BRIDGE + CHORUS

M8: Crush me like a butterfly
Lovesick like a lullaby
Track Name: Good Old Fashioned Heartache
Is this how it goes
In love’s final throes?
Getting your hair cut
And buying new clothes
Are those things for me?
Or could they be
Our love affair’s debris?

CHORUS: Good Old Fashioned heartache
Missed calls and mistakes
Now we’re back where we start-e-e-d
Good Old Fashioned Heartache
How much can I bear till it breaks
And I’m left here half-hearted

Too early to call?
Is there further to fall?
Sleep has been scarce again
Can’t pray anymore
It's not the same
Our pilot flame's not burning anymore

CHORUS

M8: You don’t ever know
The way it will go
Delirious high now nowhere to go
Were you hoping to find
The marrying kind
Won't you take a look behind
