Track Name: Last Kiss Goodnight
if i'd have known it was the last time
i would have never let it slip my mind
but now i'm struggling to remember
the last time we kissed goodnight

was it on the lips? was it on the bed?
did you kiss me freely, or quickly turn your head?
because i'm struggling to remember
the last time we kissed goodnight

oh, sometimes i wonder just where it is i went wrong
was i too weak to hold on to something so heavy so long?
i've been out every evening, hoping to bring back a thrill
oh how i wish i could feel it, and maybe i just never will

but if i asked you over, would you stay a while?
lay down beside me, and lend me a smile?
pretend it's the first time and turn down the lights?
maybe there doesn't have to be a last time
if you help me to remember the last time we kissed goodnight
Track Name: Before the Bells
it's like dancing over eggshells
being so close to you
now we're struggling to comprehend
what we got into
all my common senses are overloaded
shot to pieces
too high and far to fall to let it show
oh...

just as long as nobody knows it
we can go on doing our thing
under-cover till somebody blows it
cut the lines before the bells can ring
just as long as nobody knows it

so we'll keep it off the record
won't give up the story
step into each other's shadow
if the heat gets heavy
oh my, maybe i got in over my head
now it's all or nothing
but i can't deny it's a beautiful mess
yes...

(chorus)

does it really have to play out this way?
we may never win
but we can paint a little sun in the sky

(chorus)
Track Name: Heart of Gold
you got a heart of gold
so heavy, so hard, so cold
so is it any wonder you're alone?

you're like a day in the sun
you leave your mark on everyone
when night time comes around, you turn to stone

it doesn't have to be this way
you don't need an alibi
if your heart decides that you need somebody
you don't need to try...

you and your silver tongue
oh you've had quite the lucky run
it seems there's nothing you can't talk around

but all said and done
oh one of us is bound to come
apart if we don't come together now

chorus

it's so easy if you let it be
it could be easy, so come on after me

you got a heart of gold
you're like a day in the sun
you and your silver tongue
one of us is bound to come apart

with your heart of gold
Track Name: Sixteen Days
new leaves fall from the apple tree
time goes on but i still can't believe
that something so good could be gone

calling out, but i hear no reply
this creole town has a tear in its eye
but i won't be crying for long

everywhere i go, i know that you're here with me
everything i see is telling me somebody's waiting for me
waiting for me

"what's your name?", came a voice from above
i said, "we're all the same when you lose what you love"
and lord knows that i've needed a friend

sixteen days since the rain set in
sixteen days, wondering 'where have you been?'
but i know that i'll see you again

everywhere i go, i know that you're here with me
everything i see is telling me somebody's waiting for me
waiting for me, waiting for me...

everywhere i go, i know that you're here with me
everything i see is telling me somebody's waiting for me
every word i say, i know that you're hearing me
every second of the day, oh i know that somebody's waiting for me
waiting for me, waiting for me
Track Name: Grays Inn Road
i was half asleep the night i met you on grays inn road
an evening in november, everything was just about to change
in that watercolour evening dress, glistening like a diamond in the darkness
close enough to whisper; you were still a million miles away

oh, come and give me one more try
just a chance to put the wrong things right
for a day or even just one night...
oh, come and see me one more time
won't you tell me what's been on your mind
let me show you what you left behind
come on... give me one more try

i accidentally told you that i loved you, on grays inn road
a lapse of concentration or was it what i really meant to say?
oh, riding on the moving stairs, you told me that you wouldn't wanna "be that girl"
hand in hand together; you were still a million miles away

chorus

you were waiting for me to make my move
to pick you up and sweep you away
i was worn out and tired from moving so fast
but things are very different today

now i can't help but think about you walking up to grays inn road
in the daylight it's nothing like the place where you used to stay
oh, when i tried to reach you, i didn't get an answer
i had flown across an ocean; you were still a million miles away
Track Name: The Record
by the bombed-out church on the edge of town
with the homeless sleepers where we lay down
the sun was high, our love was fresh and new

we had laid our towel on the dying grass
just to watch the cars and the buses pass
and smile up at the sky all afternoon

you whispered to me, "don't you let me down"
we kissed like there was no-one else around

i wanna be there now
i wanna take you back
to a moment when you wanted what you had

you made your promise and i made mine
in the sacred hour of a long-lost time
we swore that we would always feel the same

oh but images slip beyond our reach
like footprints lost on a distant beach
and what is gone is all that will remain

we sipped our drinks and listened to the wind
thinking only of the minutes we were in

i wanna be there now
i wanna take you back
to a moment when you wanted what you had
i wanna be there now
so i can break your heart
we can set the record straight right from the start
Track Name: Burn
i could see smoke rising
over the trees in your garden
i wondered what you could be burning
a week to the day since we parted

trust me, i'm trying to
but i can't get over you
in this empty room

i got nothing to burn
you got my letters and all those old books
of picture we took
i got nothing to burn
to help me forget that you loved me
you left me with nothing to burn
you left me with nothing to burn

got work in the morning
but i stay up all night with my friends
cause at the end of the evening
this room will be empty again

lord knows i'm trying to
but i can't get over you
so what can i do

i got nothing to burn
you got the records that i'm gonna miss
you got all of that shit
i got nothing to burn
to help me forget that you loved me
you left me with nothing to burn
you left me with nothing to burn
