Track Name: Oh! Amanda
Amanda’s in her bed; feeling kind of strange
dreaming of the boy that she saw today
Thinks he’s by her side; wrapped up in his arms
imagining his touch sends shivers down her spine

Oh! Amanda, what would mummy say
if she knew what you were thinking, thinking of today
Oh! Amanda, what would mummy say
if she knew what you were thinking, thinking of today

Amanda’s making plans little fantasies inside
gonna get her man using feminine wiles
Pulling on her dress painting up her face
Her reflection in the mirror shows the woman not the child

Oh! Amanda, what would mummy say
if she knew what you were thinking, thinking of today
Oh! Amanda, what would mummy say
if she knew what you were thinking, thinking of today
Oh! Amanda, what would mummy say
if she knew what you were thinking, thinking of today
Oh! Amanda, what would mummy say
if she knew what you were thinking, thinking of today

Amanda’s in her bed; thinking up a way
that she can get the boy that she saw today
Dreams he’s by her side wrapped up in his arms
Imagining his touch sending shivers up her spine

Oh! Amanda, what would mummy say
if she knew what you were thinking, thinking of today
Oh! Amanda, what would mummy say
if she knew what you were thinking, thinking of today
Track Name: Watcha Got?
I was gonna be playing later on that evening
So I sat at the bar nursing one more pint
A couple in the corner were in heated conversation
And I couldn’t believe it; this is what I heard she said

CHORUS
“Watcha got to keep me interested?”
“Watcha got to keep me satisfied?”
“Watcha Got, ‘cos I don’t see much before me?”
“Watcha got, go on tell me some more lies.”

I was walking through the park to catch a little sunshine
Taking a stroll round about the lake
When I hear a guy who was talking to his lady
And I couldn’t believe it; this is what I heard he said

CHORUS

I was gonna be playing later on that evening
So I sat at the bar nursing one more pint
A couple in the corner got in heated conversation
And I couldn’t believe it; this is what I heard she said

CHORUS
Track Name: Freedom
Can’t you see, that they’re playing with your liberty
and they call it freedom
A subtle erosion, but where will it end?
In your own home now their prison cell

And they say if you’ve nothing to hide you’ve nothing to fear
Fear to them, is the final solution
They’re controlling your life and they call it freedom
They’re controlling your life and you think you’ve got freedom

It’s for your protection ‘cos they received information
but they won’t say where from
Just part of a plan, formed by grey, nameless faces
That answers to no-one

And they say if you’ve nothing to hide you’ve nothing to fear
Fear to them, is the final solution
They’re controlling your life and they call it freedom
They’re controlling your life and you think you’ve got freedom

They watch you, from every street corner
But it’s for your own safety
We’re fed half-truths, wrapped up in lies
Until we’re blinded by deceit and confusion

And they say if you’ve nothing to hide you’ve nothing to fear
Fear to them, is the final solution
They’re controlling your life and they call it freedom
They’re controlling your life and you think you’ve got freedom

And they say if you’ve nothing to hide you’ve nothing to fear
Oh! They say if you’ve nothing to hide you’ve nothing to fear
They’re controlling your life and they call it freedom
They’re controlling your life and you think you’ve got freedom
Track Name: I'm Going Home
I’m going home; I ain’t been back for far too long
I’m going home; I need my bed so I can rest my head
I’m going home; been away for far too long
I’m going home; find my friends, see what’s going on

Is David going out with Julie, or did he never ask?
It’s strange to see the way he lets his head rule his heart.
And do you still feel the same, the same as when I left
when you said you never wanted to see me again?

I’m going home; been travelling far too long
I’m going home; familiar things are what I need
I’m going home; I ain’t been back for far too long
I hear it calling, hear it calling me

Is David going out with Julie, or did he never ask?
It’s strange to see the way he lets his head rule his heart.
And do you still feel the same, the same as when I left
when you said you never wanted to see me again?

I’m going home; I ain’t been back for far too long
I’m going home; need my bed to rest my head
I’m going home; I’m going home
I’m going home; I’m going home
Track Name: Nothing You Can Do
You’re in a crowded room alone
You hide the truth it can’t be known
The deed is done and now there’s nothing left
All the words you wish you hadn’t said
You wished you’d kept them in your head
It’s too late and now there’s nothing

CHORUS
You never thought there’d be a price
‘cos loving him it felt so nice
And there’s nothing left for you
Now you find life’s a bitch
Chewed you up – Spat you out
And there’s nothing you can do

So in your best friend you confide
Of little kicks you feel inside
She shakes her head and then says nothing
He don’t write he doesn’t phone
You say his heart is made of stone
Forget you’re the one who told him, to go

CHORUS

You’re in a crowded room alone
You hide the truth it can’t be known
The deed is done and now there’s nothing left
He don’t write he doesn’t phone
You say his heart is made of stone
Forget you’re the one who told him, to go

CHORUS
Track Name: Fine, Fine, Fine!
I saw your face, the face that launched a thousand ships
I can taste your lipstick on my lips from your kiss
You stole my heart; I stole yours too
now there’s nothing that I; that I can do

Now it’s fine, fine, fine, it’s clear here in my mind
That it’s love, love, love and it just don’t hurt enough
Yes it’s fine, fine, fine, it’s clear now in my mind
That it’s love, love, love and it just don’t hurt enough, it don’t hurt enough

You steal my breath with a fleeting touch
And do you know what’s really sad? I can’t get enough
I shouldn’t feel; I shouldn’t feel this way
Love’s got in my head driving me insane

But it’s fine, fine, fine, it’s clear here in my mind
That it’s love, love, love and it just don’t hurt enough
Yes it’s fine, fine, fine, it’s clear now in my mind
That it’s love, love, love and it just don’t hurt enough, it don’t hurt enough

Instrumental Break

It’s fine, fine, fine, it’s clear here in my mind
That it’s love, love, love and it just don’t hurt enough
Yes it’s fine, fine, fine, it’s clear now in my mind
That it’s love, love, love it just don’t hurt enough
‘cos it’s fine, fine, fine, it’s clear here in my mind
That it’s love, love, love and it just don’t hurt enough
Yes it’s fine, fine, fine, it’s clear now in my mind
That it’s love, love, love but it just don’t hurt enough, it don’t hurt enough
Track Name: No Time For Delay
Sometimes the knowing is too much to bear
And the pain of a letter leaves no chance of repair
All dreams forgotten the past has taken hold
Like a shadow to the wall you find your soul has now been sold


CHORUS
And the fear; is not knowing
The questions to the answers
Day turns into night
And there’s no time for delay
Fear is the pain
That never fades away
Look back to the future
Now there’s no time
There’s no time
No time for delay


Watch the teardrops falling, who tells all the lies?
Judge and jury sitting say: “No justice here today!”
All dreams forgotten how can we explain
that it’s only love that causes all this pain?

Chorus

Barriers are forming, from our conquests of the night
What we didn’t know just disappeared from sight
Dreams are for dreamers, dreams that never fade
Every inch a nightmare in which we were enslaved

Chorus
Track Name: Doesn't Really Matter Now It's Over & Done
When we kissed it was like the first time
And your perfume had me walking on air ooo I swear
It didn’t matter if the whole world saw us who cared?
We were in love and that’s all we knew
And it doesn’t really matter what they all say
‘cos when you fall in love you go slightly insane
And it doesn’t really matter come rain or shine
We got each other and love is blind


Don’t look back, ‘cos the past is buried and gone
We found each other but it took, it took so long
And the future is ours for the taking it’s there
Passion has exploded and now we two are one
And it doesn’t really matter what they all say
‘cos when you fall in love you go slightly insane
And it doesn’t really matter come rain or shine
We got each other and love is blind


It don’t get better any better than this
Love’s an addiction that you just can’t resist
You can’t fight it don’t bother wasting your time
It’s an obsession and it makes you lay your heart on the line
And it doesn’t really matter what they all say
‘cos when you fall in love you go slightly insane
And it doesn’t really matter come rain or shine
We got each other and love is blind

And it doesn’t really matter what they all say
‘cos when you fall in love you go slightly insane
And it doesn’t really matter come rain or shine
We got each other and love is blind

And it doesn’t really matter what they all say
‘cos when you fall in love you go slightly insane
And it doesn’t really matter come rain or shine
We got each other and love is blind

And it doesn’t really matter, doesn’t really matter at all
And it doesn’t really matter, doesn’t really matter at all
And it doesn’t really matter now ‘til it’s over and done
And it doesn’t really matter now ‘til it’s
Over and it’s over and it’s over and done

There were tears in the morning and the air was blue
With you cursing me and me cursing you
The love had turned to anger it was there in our eyes
What could we believe when there were so many lies?
We never stopped to question where it all went wrong
Just took it for granted it was over and done
Then you ran back to mummy and you turned on the tears
While I drowned my sorrow in the whisky and the beer
And it’s a strange fact of life but when it’s over and done
You won’t remember the bad times only the fun
When the love that we shared has been stripped and laid bare
Won’t remember the bad times when it’s over and done

BREAK

There’s no going back we’re never given the chance
And the scars that we wear are tattooed on our hearts
We can never return to those halcyon days
When we swore sweet devotion would be ours for always
There were tears in the morning and the air was blue
With you cursing me and me cursing you
Then you ran back to mummy and you turned on the tears
While I drowned my sorrow in the whisky and the beer

And it’s a strange fact of life but when it’s over and done
You won’t remember the bad times only the fun
When the love that we shared has been stripped and laid bare
Won’t remember the bad times when it’s over and done
And it’s a strange fact of life but when it’s over and done
You won’t remember the bad times only the fun
When the love that we shared has been stripped and laid bare
Won’t remember the bad times when it’s over and done

I never realized but you’re a pain in the arse
Does it really matter now it’s over and done?

God! There’s the door get your bags take a walk
Don’t wanna see your face around here anymore
Don’t write me letters and please don’t call
There’s nothing left to say ‘cos we’ve said it all

Does it really matter now we’ve had our fun?
Does it really matter now it’s over and done?
Track Name: The Apartment Song
I used to live in a two room apartment
Neighbours knockin’ on my wall
Times were hard I don’t wanna knock it
I don’t wanna go there at all

Oh! Yeah, I’m all right
I just feel a little lonely tonight
I’m OK, most of the time
I just feel a little lonely tonight

I used to need your love so badly
Then I came to live with it
No and then I get a faraway feelin’
And the whole thing starts again

Oh! Yeah, I’m all right
I just feel a little lonely tonight
I’m OK, most of the time
I just feel a little lonely tonight

I used to need your love so badly
Then I came to live with it
No and then I get a faraway feelin’
And the whole thing starts again

Oh! Yeah, I’m all right
I just feel a little lonely tonight
I’m OK, most of the time
I just feel a little lonely tonight
Oh! Yeah, I’m all right
I just feel a little lonely tonight
I’m OK, most of the time
I just feel a little lonely tonight
Track Name: Diamond Nights
Hitching a ride on the last train home
Going somewhere you don’t know
Heading for the future all alone
The past has gone but still you’ve got to grow

Chorus
And it’s the day when you wake-up find everything has changed
All those days are now forgotten when you lived your life a slave
Watching the sunlit flames
Dance in the velvet light
The howling trees
Controlled the diamond night
Controlled the diamond night

Singing songs of years gone by
Reminds you of the tears run dry
Now treading water 'til you find the shore
A place so safe you really want to explore

Chorus

Instrumental Break

Watching the sunlit flames
Dance in the velvet light
The howling trees
Controlled the diamond night
Controlled the diamond night

Walking in circles to find the right door
A hurricane of pleasure leads you to the core
Heading for the future all alone
The past has gone but still you’ve got to grow

Chorus
