Track Name: Speak Up
You dress yourself so well
Your make up makes your eyes so bright
And even though I know you’re taken
I want you to be mine

Your lips are red and I’m distracted
I can’t hear a word
But a thought slips out my mouth
And I know for sure you heard what I just said

I’m dismantling bombs in my stomach
I swallow them whole
But I missed one, I missed one
It’s heading straight for you
And I can’t do anything
No, I don’t know what to say at all

I keep having thoughts of futures
It just makes things worse
Romantic moments like in movies
This feels so rehearsed

But telling you might stop me stressing
At least then you’d know
And even if you just don’t feel the same
It might help me let you go

I’m dismantling bombs in my stomach
I swallow them whole
But I missed one, I missed one
It’s heading straight for you
And I can’t do anything
No, I don’t know what to say at all

Will these words make you smile
Or should I apologise
The awkward moment as the thought sinks in
Then you tell me how you feel

She said
I’m so sorry you fought
Not to tell me
Because I’ve liked you as long
So now kiss me

I’m heading straight for you
Your lips are calling to me
No, I’ve nothing else to say at all
I’ve nothing else to say at all
I’ve nothing else to say at all
Track Name: Chancer
I’m stuck here overthinking
Fighting to see it as they’ve said
But there is no one quite
As blind as me

I see your little gestures
Or read body like a book
To tell me you’re not
Interested in me

Now I’ve got to get a grip
I couldn’t think of a better time
To tell you how I feel
I’m just nervous enough
That if I go to speak
My words just won’t make sense
And I’ll make a fool out of myself

It’s time to make or break this
To bite the bullet, say my piece
Before I can you go and
Surprise me

You say that you had fun and
The best part was dancing with me
And in that moment
I cannot stop smiling

But I’ve got to get a grip
I couldn’t think of a better time
To tell you how I feel
I’m just nervous enough
That if I go to speak
My words just won’t make sense
And I’ll make a fool out of myself

I’ll make a fool out of myself
I’ll make a fool out of my–

Now if I don’t get a grip
I’ll never tell how cute you are
Or that we’re meant to kiss
Forever hoping my luck might change
But never trying to change it for myself
I watch you leave

And I take my deepest breath
I run out after you
Knowing that I might have missed my chance
Call your name from the steps
When you look at me, I ask and you say yes
I kiss your lips, you take my hand
I hope this moment never ends
I hope this moment never ends
Track Name: Drunk Talk
Clenching my fingers so tight
I can’t escape the thoughts
Of things I told you last night
So doused in alcohol

And this all happened before
I know it will again
I go and beat myself up
Though I can’t change what I said

What if I stop
I say what’s done is done
That an apology’s enough

Heart pounds in my chest
Oh I wish I were dead
Time won’t reverse
Fuck this regret

What if I stop
I say what’s done is done
That an apology’s enough

Heart pounds in my chest
Oh I wish I were dead
Time won’t reverse
Fuck this regret
Track Name: Friendly Fire
Talk around the knowledge that
My close friend has been lying to my face
And worse yet I couldn’t bring myself to say
I knew and he was driving me away

And as the anger built
From conversations left unsaid
My cowardice held true
But I would scream this in my head

When everyone abandons you
I bet you think I’ll stick around
You used to have that grip on me
But I can see what you are now

You’ll never know this as the truth
Convinced that I pushed you away
A friendship ending here and now
Unspoken

Years passed and we both had our separate lives
Things that had mattered were forgotten
And I knew I held this in for fear that I
Would lose somebody I looked up to

But I still wanted to know
If he knew how it hurt
And it’s hard to let go
When I hear the words repeating now

When everyone abandons you
I bet you think I’ll stick around
You used to have that grip on me
But I can see what you are now

You’ll never know this as the truth
Convinced that I pushed you away
A friendship ending here and now
Unspoken

I’m here to tell you
I won’t believe a thing you say again

I can’t believe I haven’t seen you for so long
But you seem different now
Admitting to the things that I had
always known were true

And even though I don’t want to let you in
I have a feeling now that it’s time to forgive
Forget mistakes, be friends, move on

When everyone abandons you
I bet you think I’ll stick around
You used to have that grip on me
But I can see what you are now

You’ll never know this as the truth
Convinced that I pushed you away
A friendship ending here and now
Unspoken
