Track Name: Touché
I had a fella once when I knew how to love
And with my fella, we once fit like hand in glove
I haven't always been so petulant
The way you see me coming, then you stare
Like I'll lead you astray

Touché, what a day
Now you've stopped me in my tracks
And touché, what a day
I feel like there's no turning back

Touché, what a day
Now you've stopped me in my tracks
And touché, what a day
I feel like there's no turning back

I'd like to love you and leave you the way I know you might
Do it before me, just let go, cos men like you take flight
Oh you are charming and deadly, you are an animal
If you're the wolf then I'm sheep, and that's impractical

Touché, what a day
Now you've stopped me in my tracks
And touché, what a day
I feel like there's no turning back

Touché, what a day
Now you've stopped me in my tracks
And touché, what a day
I feel like there's no turning back

Ooh you've got me wrapped around your finger
But I don't care for this
No, I don't care for this

Ooh you've got me wrapped around your finger
But I don't care for this
No, I don't care for this

Touché, what a day
Now you've stopped me in my tracks
And touché, what a day
I feel like there's no turning back

Touché, what a day
Now you've stopped me in my tracks
And touché, what a day
I feel like there's no turning back
Track Name: Keeper
Close the door
I've got no conscience, it's unsteady
Don't keep score
The time is right, time is now, I am ready

I want more, more than this
Watch me just break and bend
I want more, more than this
We don't have to pretend

Close the door
I've got no conscience, it's unsteady
Don't keep score
The time is right, time is now, I am ready

I want more, more than this
Watch me just break and bend
I want more, more than this
We don't have to pretend

I want more, more than this
Watch me just break and bend
I want more, more than this
We don't have to pretend
Track Name: The Life Song
I wait my turn, my turn in line
From half past eight til half past nine
So one day I can finally be
A human with the kingdom's key

I'm restless every single hour
I can't break free from my bell tower
And so the dreams I dream inside
Spill out of me like a gushing tide

Come on, come on, come on
Where do we go from here
Time plays his little game
And then we disappear

I am waiting for the day
To live my life without delay
Maybe I will one day find
The fire that still burns inside

A fact I know I fact I'm sure
Is life's the biggest mortal chore
To work and work until the day
Our knees give out and our bones decay

Come on, come on, come on
Where do we go from here
Time plays his little game
And then we disappear

I am waiting for the day
To live my life without delay
Maybe I will one day find
The fire that still burns inside

I am waiting for the day
To live my life without delay
Maybe I will one day find
The fire that still burns inside

And now I lay me down to sleep
I pray the Lord my soul to keep
Cos keep is nice and keep is good
If you can dance like a woman should

If you can dance like a woman should
Track Name: Lullaby
Go, Go to sleep
When you wake up, I’ll still be by your side

Don’t change, change a thing
‘Cause when I wake up, you’ll still be on my mind

And I will sing you a lullaby
In the darkest, darkest of nights

Turn, turn on your light
Cos when you grow up, you’ll be first to take flight
Set fire, fire to your tears
‘Cause if you’re fearful, life won’t adhere

And I will sing you a lullaby
In the darkest, darkest of nights

And I, I will be the one to hold you
When you come home, home to me

I know there are voyages you’ll go through
But you’ll come home, home when you’re free

Home when you’re free
You’ll come home to me
Track Name: Walk Away
I don't chase shadows
Don't pine after empty dreams
So Darling, maybe it's time, baby it's time for me to
Stop thinking of you as a favourite taboo

I am giving you a chance to walk away
Darling, don't delay
The disarray of your stay will cause me more dismay

If your interest is a fickle friend
Then my heart's a party you can't attend
So Darling, maybe your smile, Baby your style
Should find another one whose willing to come undone

I am giving you a chance to walk away
Darling, don't delay
The disarray of your stay will cause me more dismay
I am giving you a chance to walk away
Darling, don't delay
The disarray of your stay will cause me more dismay

You're unlikely anyway like instant noodles and cabernet
Like lack of diction in my word play
A loophole on my judgement day
A-E-I-O-U and I oh U and I oh U and U and U and U and

I am giving you a chance to walk away
Darling, don't delay
The disarray of your stay will cause me more dismay
I am giving you a chance to walk away
How come I still pray for you to come and sway my way
Oh Darling, miss me, let's be a cliché
Track Name: The Loveless
Here lies the loveless
A most peculiar breed
So if you cross the loveless
You should prepare to bleed

Here lies the loveless
A most peculiar breed
So if you cross the loveless
You should prepare to bleed

They will strip you down and chew you up
Make you tremble with unease
For with the slightest gaze they can
Do with you as they please

Here lies the loveless
A most peculiar breed
So if you cross the loveless
You should prepare to bleed

You should prepare to bleed
You should prepare to bleed
You should prepare to bleed
