Here with Me 
I didn't hear you leave, I wonder how am I still here/I don't want to move a think, it might change my memory/ oh I am what I am, I'll do what I want, but I can't hide/ I won't go, I won't sleep, I can't breath, until you're resting here with me/ I don't want to call my friends, they might wake me from this dream/ and I can't leave this bed, risk forgetting all that's been/ oh I am what I am, i'll do what I want, but I can't hide/ I won't go, I won't sleep, I can't breathe, until you're resting here with me/ I won't leave, I can't hide, I cannot be, until you're resting here with me. 


Hunter 
With one light on in one room, I know you're up when I get home/ with one small step upon the stair, I know your look when I get there/ if you were a kind up there on your throne, would you be wise enough to let me go/ for this queen you think you own/ wants to be a hunter again, wants to see the world alone again/ to take a chance on life again, so let me go/ the unread book and painful look, the tv's on, the sound is down/ one long pause, then you begin, oh look what the cat's brought in/ if you were a kind up there on your throne, would you be wise enough to let me go/ for this queen you think you own/ wants to be a hunter again, wants to see the world alone again/ to take a chance on life again, so let me go, let me leave/ for the crown you've placed upon my head feels too heavy now/ and I don't know what to say to you but i'll smile anyhow/ and all the time I'm thinking, thinking/ I want to be a hunter again, want to see the world alone again/ to take a chance on life again, so let me go 


Don't Think of Me 
So you're with her, and not with me, I hope she's sweet and so pretty/ I hear cooks delightfully, a little angel beside you/ so you're with her, and not with me, oh how lucky one man can be/ I hear your house is smart and clean, oh how lovely with your homecoming queen/ oh how lovely it must be/ when you see her sweet smile baby, don't think of me/ when she lays in your warm arms, don't think of me/ so you're with her, and not with me, I know she spreads sweet honey/ in fact your best friend, I heard he spent last night with her/ Now how do you feel/ when you see her sweet smile baby, don't think of me/ when she lays in your warm arms, don't think of me/ and it's too late and it's too bad, don't think of me/ oh it's too late and it's too bad, don't think of me/ does it bother you now all the mess I made/ does it bother you now the clothes you told me not to wear/ does it bother you now all the angry games we played/ does it bother you now when I'm not there/ when you see her sweet smile baby, don't think of me/ when she lays in your warm arms, don't think of me/ and it's too late and it's too bad, don't think of me/ oh it's too late, oh it's too bad, don't think of me


My Lover's Gone 
My lover's gone, his boots no longer by my door, he left at dawn, and as I slept I felt him go returns not more, I will not watch the ocean, my lover's gone, no earthly ships will ever bring him home again, bring him home again/ my lover's gone, I know that kiss will be my last, not more his song, the tune upon his lips has passed I sing alone, while I watch the ocean my lover's gone, no earthly ships will ever bring him home again, bring him home again 


All You Want 
I'd like to watch you sleep at night, to hear you breathe by my side/ and although sleep leaves me behind, there's nowhere i'd rather be/ and now our bed is oh so cold, my hands feel empty, no one to hold/ I can sleep what side I want, it's not the same with you gone/ oh if you'd come home, I'll let you know that/ all you want, is right here in this room, all you want/ and all you need, is sitting here with you, all you want/ it's been three years, one night apart, but in that night you tore my heart/ if only you had slept alone, if those seeds had not been sown/ oh you could come home and you would know that/ all you want, is right here in this room, al you want/ all you need is sitting here with you, al you want/ I hear your key turning in the door, I won't be hearing that sound anymore/ and you and your sin can leave the way you just came in, send my regards to her/ I hope you've found that/ all you want, is right there in that room, all you want/ all you need is sitting there with you, all you want/ I'd like to watch you sleep at night, to hear you breathe by my side 


 Thank You 
My tea's gone cold, I'm wondering why I got out of bed at all/ the morning rain clouds up my window and I can't see at all/ and even if I could it'd all be grey, but your picture on my wall/ it reminds me that it's not so bad, it's not so bad/ I drank too much last night, got bills to pay, my head just feels in pain/ I missed the bus and there'll be hell today, I'm late for work again/ and even if i;m there, they'll all imply that I might not last the day/ and then you call me and it's not so bad, it's not so bad and/ I want to thank you for giving me the best day of my life/ oh just to be with you is having the best day of my life/ push the door, I'm home at last and I'm soaking through and through/ then you handed me a towel and all I see is you/ and even if my house falls down now, I wouldn't have a clue/ because you're near me/ I want to thank you for giving me the best day of my life/ oh just to be with you is having the best day of my life


 Honestly OK 
I just want to feel safe in my own skin, I just to be happy again/ I just want to feel deep in my own world/ but I'm so lonely I don't even want to be with myself anymore/ on a different day, if I was safe in my own skin, then  I wouldn't feel lost and so frightened/ but this is today and I'm lost in my own skin/ and I'm so lonely I don't even want to be with my myself anymore/ I just want to feel safe in my own skin, I just want to be happy again 


Slide

Even on a day like this when you're crawling on the floor/ reaching for the phone to ring anyone who knows you anymore/ it's all right to make mistakes, you're only human/ inside everybody's hiding something/ staring at the same four walls, have you tried to help yourself/ the rings around your eyes they don't hide, that you need to get some rest/ it's all right to make mistakes you're only human/ inside everybody's hiding something/ take time to catch your breath and choose your moment Don't Slide Even at a time like this when the morning seems so far/ Think that pain belongs to you but it's happened to us all/ it's all right to make mistakes you're only human/ inside everybody's hiding something/ take time to catch your breath and choose your moment/ don't slide/ You brought this on yourself/ And it's high time you left it there/ lie here and rest your head and dream of something else instead/ Don't slide 

Isobel

I thought it was funny when you missed the train/ when I rang you at home they said you'd left yesterday/ I thought it was strange when you car was found/ by the tree in ennis where we used to hang around/ Dear Isobel, I hope you're well and what you've done is right/ oh it's been such hell, I wish you well, I hope you're safe tonight/ it's been a long day coming and long will it last/ when it's last day leaving, and I'm helping it pass/ by loving you more/ and who he would become, all the things he'd have done/ would he have loved you and not let you down/ and would he be stronger than his father/ don't punish yourself, leave it well alone/ dear isobel, I hope you're well and what you've done is right/ oh it's been such hell, I wish you well, I hope you're safe tonight/ it's been a long day coming and long will it last/ when it's last day leaving, and I'm helping it pass/ by loving you more 

 No Angel

If you gave me just a coin for every time we say goodbye Well I'll be rich beyond my dreams, i'm sorry for my weary life I know I'm not perfect but I can smile And I hope you can see this heart behind these tired eyes If you tell me that I can't, I will, I will, I'll try all night And if I say I'm coming home, I'll probably be out all night I know I can be afraid but I'm alive And I hope that you trust this heart behind my tired eyes I'm no angel, but please don't think that I won't try and try I'm no angel, but does that mean that I can't live my life I'm no angel, but please don't think that I can't cry I'm no angel, but does that mean that I won't fly I know I'm not around each night And I know I always think I'm right I can believe that you might look around I'm no angel, but please don't think that I won't try and try I'm no angel, but does that mean that I can't live my life I'm no angel, but please don't think that I can't cry I'm no angel, but does that mean that I won't fly 

My life

What I choose to do is of no concern to you and your friends/ where I lay my hat may not be my home, but I will last on my own/ 'cause it's me, and my life, it's my lie, it's my life/ oh the world has sat in the palm of my hand not that you'd see/ and I'm tired and bored of waiting for you and all those things you never do/ 'cause it's me, and my life, it's my life, it's my life
