James Marsh It's only my favourite TODAY. Each track is a favourite at some point. But this, today, is hitting the spot. They throw the kitchen sink in. It has everything in it. Massive instrumentation all over the shop and you can hear the frog if you listen carefully too. Not one dodgy track on this album. Winners, all of them! Favorite track: Lotions.

A night to remember As the stars open their eyes The heat seems to linger Though the sun has said its goodbyes A seductive perfume Lingers on the evening light A tantalising dream It's the music of the light This melody's so sweet It's got my senses burning It pulls me to my feet I can't resist this yearning A twitching grinding fever hits Deep within my dancing bits A finger taps and it finds the beat With a clenched up jaw and running feet What is this I'm feeling? Slow malaise, creeping time, heavy bones What can I be felling? Over heat, over night, all alone A soft pulsing beat On this everlasting night Teases my feet I can't resist, no I can't fight This melody's so sweet... The heat is jumping And I'm not holding back My feet are tumbling And I'm all over that

Deathly taste of guilt on her lips One more drink will wash it down Finger on her trigger finger One more drink will weigh it down She's gone to hell in a hand bag With lipstick on her teeth In a cloud of smoke that hides her grief Standing in her house of cards One more breath will bring it down Woven web will suffocate her One more breath will bring it down She's gone to hell in a hand bag with lipstick on her teeth In a cloud of smoke that hides her grief A woman on the run, with a loaded gun After all these years she's only looking for some fun Looking in her rear view mirror Glad to leave it all behind Running faster, reaching further One more mile gives peace of mind

Dragged along like nothing's wrong He's just another grubby toy Won't be long before he's gone He's just another noise to annoy The front yard's now a jungle Of debris and despair And the beautiful blue tree, now grey Has only plastic bags to bare At five and six they learnt new tricks To make their papa proud Their innocence ain't worth a cent now Not where they are bound The front yard's getting crowded A shrouded gloomy tomb And the beautiful blue tree now leans A kebab its only bloom And what I think's important You don't think's important What I think is beautiful You don't even see So what if we are different We still breath the same air If I can't understand you and you don't seem to care A frown already 'pon her brow The boys they hover near History will repeat itself If helped along by fear The front yard's now a junkyard See nature's lost this race And the beautiful blue tree's now gone But there's a fridge there in its place!

There was a girl and she thought she had everything Her world came tumbling down What a struggle, to take on every day, after day after day One way to chase the demons away Where did you run to, when you wouldn't pick up, wouldn't open the door? Where did you run to? The only place that's safe for you Hard to explain, noone understands her pain Forgive and be strong Night draws closer and she is glad of the company One way to chase the demons away Where did you run to, when you wouldn't pick up, wouldn't open the door? Where did you run to? The only place that's safe for you is sleep Where did you run to, when you wouldn't pick up, wouldn't open the door? Where did you run to? The only place that's safe for you

Another morning dull and grey Another night before today Another burn on the Persian rug And the mirror there on the floor Another day at the job I hate Another day I sit and wait To be upon my Persian rug With the mirror there on the floor. Hey hey hey I know my soul will have to pay Hey hey hey Before the devil gets his way Hey hey hey I know my soul will have to pay Hey hey hey Until then I will fly away, fly away, fly away On my magic carpet ride I flew so high I touched the sky I spoke with angels at the gate Of the mirror there on the floor They told me something had to give If I truly want to live I caught a glimpse of who I've become In the mirror there on the floor. Hey hey hey.... Another morning dull and grey Another night before today The Persian rug has lost its charm And the mirror's not on the floor The magic box's lid is shut The credit card has been cut up The final fiver has been spent And the mirrors back on the wall Hey hey hey...

I tried to do things the right way Tried to make you see sense But now it looks as though I have got to use my influence Tried to make you remember Tried to make you forget Now I'll have to act fast my friend Before you slip through the net Lotions, potions, anything I can find Lotions, potions, anything to make you mine Voodoo, I will do anything to make you see I will put a spell on you 'till you come back to me I sit alone contemplating What my next move should be This game of chance has so fast become a thing of reality I can sense that you're close now And my heart starts to glow Makes me smile when I think of all the things you'll never know Trust in me, just in me You will fine peace of mind This hocus pocus is working You're in the palm of my hand And you will love me again Then you'll understand

I'd like to tell you 'bout the boy with a boater on his head Though you might want to hear something else instead He was a charmer with a smile that could melt a stone cold heart And his eyes, well, they twinkled in the moonlight Although we met a few times before, It was usually three or four in the morning and the wine had made it hard to see What was right in front of me Hey! Boy with a boater, Look at what you did, you made my heart go like a motor, And I'd like to take you out, maybe give me a shout sometime. Ok, so I'm a little older, Maybe that just means that I can be a little bolder, So I think that you and I should give things a try tonight! So the attraction wasn't simply to his hat, Let me tell you there was so much more than that: Silver pocket watch, a waistcoat, and a shiny silk cravat, That's not all, he looked so handsome in a top-hat In the end the boater boy decided to agree, And we're happy as can be Holding hands, making plans, we live in perfect harmony

Dawn is breaking I lie here waiting Staring restlessly at the sky You lie unwoken Naked and broken On this, the greatest day of our lives The world is mine The world is mine to play with today The birds, the trees, they set me free to fly away Run away with me Frolic in the flowers Endless possibilities We can do just what we please Noone can take that from us Flush of green Clouds of cream Blue sapphire sky pressing down on me Harbour no pretences Watch him cry then send him Drifting off into the above

Underneath the rose-tinted glass Shadows dance off into the dark Armed with all that you perceive You won't be prepared for what lies beneath When I was little I wanted to see What people meant by the birds and the bees Things were much simpler when just holding hands But that was not really part of boys plans Oh dear, silly old me What a fool I have been What's all this nonsense of fairytale dreams Oh how daft I have been 'Cause love does not care where it goes Where it will land nobody knows Whether you're little or whether you're old Love does not what it's told I tried and I tried but it was for no good I could not feel what they said that I should Then oh so suddenly like a hook to the chin I found myself in a most wondrous spin Spinning around and around and around You best hold on tight or be flung to the ground I met a boy unlike ever before but my grip was too slippy and I was slung to the ground Oh dear, silly old me What a fool I have been What's all this nonsense of fairytale dreams Oh how daft I have been 'Cause love is not what I thought Love does not what its ought Not like a pet it has teeth and it bites It has got fists and it's up for a fight Like an old dog who just might have your hand Be careful or you might get lost in quicksand Drowning and drowning and drowning and drowning 'Cause I knew nothing

Do you think we can forgive Do you think we can forget Do you think we can forgive And forget, and live life and let it go? Do you think we can move on Do you think we can make up Do you think we can move on and make up And prove that we're more than this? It's on the tip of my tongue It's on the tip of my tongue, but the sorry didn't come Do you think we can start again Do you think we can make amends Do you think we can ever be friends again? Let's get it over it Please let's get peer it Let's get over it right now You know it's time to move on You know it's time to move on You know it's time to move on right now.
