Track Name: Waitress
You wine, you dine me
you take me out to state your doubt
I smile, we talk, you shine
your practiced words in the back of your mind

You wine, you dine me
you take me out to state your doubt
the clues are there for the taking
lips wide, your eyes fixed outside

You wine, you dine me
you take me out to state your doubt
the years are broken in a moment and I go and leave you to your waitress

no tears no words
no sad goodbyes
no tears no words
you won't see me cry

I sent a postcard home
I didn't say you left me all alone
and I'll smile and I 'll say Im fine
bring me another cup of tea
sun on my face, salt in my hands
Track Name: Radio
Some days and I can close the door on the world
people I just can't keep them out my face
and close the doors up hard
and I need to hear the sound
I got soul
with you we keep on dancing
I'm dancing

turn on the radio
turn the radio on
turn the radio on
turn the radio on
turn the radio on
turn the radio on

walk streets,
hear the music from the windows
break doors, find pianos to play my song
bang the keys down hard
and I need to hear the sound
I've got soul, with you we keep on dancing
Im dancing

turn the radio on
turn the radio on
turn the radio on
turn the radio on
turn the radio on
turn the radio on

It slows down
and I could close the door on our world
fall in, watch and fall in with the march
slam the keys down hard
and I need to hear the sounds
I got soul with you we keep on dancing
I'm dancing
Track Name: Ten Feet Tall
Drip drip drip the rain falling down on me,
Trip trip trip there's me falling down on my knees again,
and your dead cold eyes hold me down,
and these grey cold are closing in on me again,
I could turn back time, rewind it all
and I could cut to fade see me falling down again

I will rip my face off, I'll be ten feet tall, to see you coming
and I will be the damn fool made to your hearts desire
please don't take this habit from my arms
leave behind the skin, the flesh, the bone

I'm your mad old fool tapes spooling round my knees
and with an ice cold grip this pictures I hold in my hand
and your shining eyes they hold me down
and these grey cold walls closing in on me again

I will rip my face off, I'll be ten feet tall, to see you coming
and I will be the damn fool made to your hearts desire
please don't take this habit from my arms
leave behind the skin, the flesh, the bone

I will rip my face off, I'll be ten feet tall, to see you coming
and I will be the damn fool made to your hearts desire
please don't take this habit from my arms
leave behind the skin, the flesh, the bone

leave behind the skin, the flesh, the bone
leave behind the skin, the flesh, the bone
leave behind the skin, the flesh, the bone
leave behind the skin, the flesh, the bone

Close our eyes, play the scenes behind our eyes
and one last kiss lift up and whirl me around
and your smiling eyes will hold me down
and I am ten feet tall

to hold you again...
Track Name: Dirty Little Man
Oh you're a shambles
but you're full of smiles
falling down the stairs
kicking down the tables
giving her the eye
you dirty little nightmare

sticks and stones may break my bones
your words will never harm me
sticks and stones may break my bones
your words will never harm me

So you're all dressed up now
trousers all tucked
quite the likely lad
knocking back the natch
cos eating's cheating
hey boy where's your charm gone?

Buff up that stella swagger
and puff your chest out hard
you're really quite a treat
bringing out your best lines
oh she'd get it would she?
do you kiss your mum with that mouth?

sticks and stones may break my bones
your words will never harm me
sticks and stones may break my bones
your words will never harm me

oh! oh! such a dirty little man
oh! oh! such a dirty little man
oh! oh! such a dirty little man
oh! oh! such a dirty little man

Oh you're a shambles
but you're full of smiles
falling down the stairs
kicking down the tables
giving her the eye
you dirty little nightmare!
Track Name: Postcard from Palm Beach
I write down your words
just to get me a roof
I queue in your halls
just to get the abuse
and I smile oh I smile
while I clean your mans shoes
but still my river runs dry

We work for our tips with the rain tumbling down
and we turn on the charm, work the rooms of this town
and we keep up the smiles with you kicking us down
but still my river runs dry

animal, cannibal want a piece of me
animal, cannibal want a piece of me
animal, cannibal want a piece of me
animal, cannibal want a piece of me

You walk past this face almost day after day
familiar eyes that you don't recognise
with a tip of the hat and a wink of the eye...
see you on the way back down

animal, cannibal want a piece of me
animal, cannibal want a piece of me
animal, cannibal want a piece of me
animal, cannibal want a piece of me

can you dance to the beat of my heart
can you dance to the beat of my heart
can you dance to the beat of my heart
can you dance to the beat of my heart

throw me a rope, I'm digging in the sand
throw me a rope, I'm digging in the sand
throw me a rope, I'm digging in the sand
throw me a rope, I'm digging in the sand

animal, cannibal want a piece of me
animal, cannibal want a piece of me
animal, cannibal want a piece of me
animal, cannibal want a piece of me

animal, cannibal want a piece of me
animal, cannibal want a piece of me
animal, cannibal want a piece of me
animal, cannibal want a piece of me
Track Name: Round and Round
You can stay in your room all day
take on the role of the broken man
look down and see yourself waste your life
and shake shake shake

or
screw your eyes up hard
take me round the waist
feel the wind spinning down turning round and down, down, round and round

You can blame all your woes on me
become the martyr your want to be
look down and see yourself take this life
and break break break

or
screw your eyes up hard
take me round the waist
feel the wind spinning down turning round and down, down, round and round

you look to me to sort out all your little woes
I look to you I got a bag of oh nos

screw your eyes up hard
take me round the waist
feel the wind spinning down turning round and down, down, round and round

screw your eyes up hard
take me round the waist
feel the wind spinning down turning round and down, down, round and round

screw your eyes up hard
take me round the waist
feel the wind spinning down turning round and down, down, round and round

Sit upon the kerb and we can while away the hours
Sit upon the kerb and we can while away the hours
Sit upon the kerb and we can while away the hours
Sit upon the kerb and we can while away the hours
