The world is a diverse place. We come in many different shapes and sizes and have different beliefs. Diversity is good. Embrace it. (Amy Macdonald)

01 - Mr. Rock & Roll

So-called Mr Rock & Roll,
Is dancing on his own again,
Talking on his phone again,
To someone who tells him that his balance is low.
He’s got nowhere to go, he’s on his own again.

Rock Chick of the century,
Is acting like she used to be,
Dancing like there’s no-one there.
Before she never seemed to care,
Now she wouldn’t dare.
It’s so Rock & Roll to be alone.

And they’ll meet one day far away,
And say, ‘I wish I was something more.’
And they’ll meet one day far away,
And say, ‘I wish I knew you, I wish I knew you before.’

Mrs Black & White she’s never seen a shade of grey,
Always something on her mind,
Every single day.
But now she’s lost her way,
And where does she go from here?

Mr. Multicultural sees all that one can see,
He’s living proof of someone very different to me.
But now he wants to be free,
Free so he can see.

And they’ll meet one day far away,
And say, ‘I wish I was something more.’
And they’ll meet one day far away,
And say, ‘I wish I knew you, I wish I knew you before.’

He’ll say, ‘I wish I knew you
I wish I met you when time was still on my side.’
She’ll say, ‘I wish I knew you
I wish I loved you before I was his bride.’

And so they must depart,
Two many more broken hearts.
But I’ve seen that all before,
In T.V, books, and film and more.
And there’s a happy ending,
Every single day.

And they’ll meet one day far away,
And say, ‘I wish I was something more.’
And they’ll meet one day far away
And say, ‘I wish I knew you, I wish I knew you before

02 - This Is The Life

Oh the wind whistles down
The cold dark street tonight
And the people they were dancing
To the music vibe

And the boys chase the girls, with curls in their hair
While the shocked too many sit way over there
And the songs get louder each one better than before

And you singing the song thinking this is the life
And you wake up in the morning and your head feels twice the size
where you gonna go, where you gonna go, where you gonna sleep tonight?
And you singing the song thinking this is the life
And you wake up in the morning and your head feels twice the sizxe
Where you gonna go, where you gonna go, where you gonna sleep tonight?
Where you gonna sleep tonight

So you’re heading down the road in your taxi for 4
And you’re waiting outside jimmy’s front door
But nobody’s in and nobody’s home till 4
So you’re sitting there with nothing to do
Talking about Robert Ragger and his 1 leg crew
And where you gonna go, where you gonna sleep tonight?

And you singing the song thinking this is the life
And you wake up in the morning and your head feels twice the size
Oh where you gonna go, where you gonna go, where you gonna sleep tonight?
And you singing the song thinking this is the life
And you wake up in the morning and your head feels twice the size
Where you gonna go, where you gonna go, where you gonna sleep tonight?
Where you gonna sleep tonight

And you singing the song thinking this is the life
And you wake up in the morning and your head feels twice the size
Oh where you gonna go, where you gonna go, where you gonna sleep tonight?
And you singing the song thinking this is the life
And you wake up in the morning and your head feels twice the size
where you gonna go, where you gonna go, where you gonna sleep tonight?

Where you gonna sleep tonight?

03 - Poison Prince

The poet’s a genius,
Its something I don’t see,
Why would a genius be trippin on me?

And there’s looking and another ,
Why he can’t see is that I’m looking through his eyes,
So many lies behind his eyes.
N tell me stories from your past,
And sing me songs you wrote before.

I tell u this my Poison Prince,
You’ll soon be knocking on Heaven’s door.

Some kind of Poison Prince,
With your eyes in daze.
Some kind of Poison Prince,
Your life is like a maze.

And what we all want and what we all crave,
Is open up these doors,
So that we can dance the night away.

Who said life was easy,
Who said life was fair,
Who said no one gives a dam,
And no one even cared.

The way you’re acting now,
Like you left that all behind.
You’ve given up,
You’ve given in,
And I’m a sucker of that kind.

Some kind of Poison Prince,
With your eyes in daze.
Some kind of Poison Prince,
Your life is like a maze.

And what we all want and what we all crave,
Is open up these doors ,
So that we can dance the night away.

Some kind of Poison Prince,
With your eyes in daze.
Some kind of Poison Prince,
Your life is like a maze.

And what we all want and what we all crave,
Is open up these doors ,
So that we can dance the night away


04 - Youth Of Today

Maybe, if you were some spear-headed guy,
I would listen to what you have to say,
But your just some incapable figure thinking your bigger than me,
But your not,
Yeah, you don't know a thing about the youth of today,
Stating your opinion making it ring in my head all day.

And you say,
My children weren't the same,
My children's children they're the ones to blame,
And you say,
In my day we were better behaved,
But it's not your day, no more.

And we are the youth of today,
Change your hair in every way,
And we are the youth of today,
We'll say what we want to say,
And we are the youth of today,
Don't care what you have to say at all.

And maybe if you had a true point of view I would listen to you,
But its just your one sided opinions getting in my way,
And you dont no a single thing about the youth of today.
Stating your opinion,
And making it ring in my head all day,

And you say,
My children weren't the same,
My children's children they're the ones to blame,
And you say,
In my day we were better behaved,
But it's not your day, no more.

We are the youth of today,
Change your hair in every way,
We are the youth of today,
We'll say what we want to say,
And we are the youth of today,
Don't care what you have to say at all.

And you say,
My children weren't the same,
My children's children they're the ones to blame,
And you say,
In my day we were better behaved,
But it's not your day, no more.

We are the youth of today,
Change your hair in every way,
We are the youth of today,
We'll say what we want to say,
And we are the youth of today,
Don't care what you have to say at all

05 - Run

Will you tell me when your lines are fading?
Cos I can’t see
I can’t see no more

Will you tell me when the song stops playing?
Cos I can’t hear
I can’t hear no more

She said “I don’t know what you’re living for”
She said “I don’t know what you’re living for at all”
He said “I don’t know what you’re living for”
He said “I don’t know what you’re living for at all”

But I will run until my feet no longer run no more
And I will kiss until my lips no longer feel no more
And I will laugh until my heart it aches
And I will love until my heart it breaks
And I will love until there’s nothing more to live for

Will you tell me when the fighting’s over?
Cos I can’t take
I can’t take no more

Will you tell me the day is done?
Cos I can’t run
I can’t run no more

She said “I don’t know what you did it for”
She said “I don’t know what you did it for at all”
He said “I don’t know what you did it for”
He said “I don’t know what you did it for at all”

But I will run until my feet no longer run no more
And I will kiss until my lips no longer feel no more
And I will laugh until my heart it aches
And I will love until my heart it breaks
And I will love until there’s nothing more to live for

And I will laugh until my heart it aches
And I will love until my heart it breaks
And I will love until there’s nothing more to live for

06 - Let's Start A Band


Put a ribbon round my neck and call me a libertine
I will sing you songs of dreams I used to dream
I will sail away on seas of silver and gold
Until I reach my home

Give me a guitar and I’ll be a trooper-dor
Your strolling minstrels will century door to door
I don’t know anymore if that feeling is past
Will it last?
Oh how can you be sure?

And how do I know if you’re feeling the same as me?
And how do I know that that’s the only place you want to be?

Give me a stage and I’ll be a rock and roll queen
Your 20th centaury cover of a magazine
Rolling stone hear I come
Watch out everyone
I’m singing, I’m singing my song

Give me a festival and I’ll be Glastonbury star
The lights are shining, everyone knows who you are
Singing songs about dreams, about homes, about schemes
Oooh they just came true

And how do I know if you’re feeling the same as me?
And how do I know that that’s the only place you want to be?
And how do I know if you’re feeling the same as me?
And how do I know that that’s the only place you want to be?

And if you wanted to, then there’s nothing left to do
Lets start a band
Lets start a band
Lets start a band
Lets start a band

And if you wanted to, then there’s nothing left to do
Lets start a band
Lets start a band
Lets start a band
Lets start a band

And if you wanted to, then there’s nothing left to do
Lets start a band
Lets start a band
Lets start a band
Lets start a band

And if you wanted to, then there’s nothing left to do

07 - Barrowland Ballroom


Oh the lights outside they’re as bright as the sun
They’re much brighter than anyone
Oh the girls in the queue yes they’re waiting for you
well they’re waiting for the song to be sung

And when the night turns to day and all the people go away it’s not the same
Tell me who’s to blame
And when the stars shine so bright on a cold December night
I wish that I was on the stage

Oh won’t you take a ride with me through the barrowland, our history, and I’ll sing you a song or two
People they may stop and stare but baby I just don’t care
Its all I need, and knew
And they’ll drink and dance and don’t you know its all part of the show
We’re going to maybe have to tell you
The people they may stop and stare but baby I just don’t care
But tonight, it’s only me and you

Oh nothing beats the fear when all (something about ceilings?)
When the band starts to play
Won’t you buy me a drink and I’ll tell her what I think
If she gets in my way

And when the night turns to day and all the people go away it’s not the same
Tell me who’s to blame
And when the stars shine so bright on a cold December night
I wish that I was on the stage

Oh won’t you take a ride with me through the barrowland, our history, and I’ll sing you a song or two
People they may stop and stare but baby I just don’t care
Its all I need, and knew
And they’ll drink and dance and don’t you know its all part of the show
Were going to to maybe have to tell you
The people they may stop and stare but baby I just don’t care
But tonight, its only me and you

and when the night turns to day and the lights they fade away
(I wish that life and love would pass me by)
And when the band starts a song because there’s something going on
(well there is magic in the air I swear)
And I wish that I saw Bowie playing on that stage
I wish that I saw something to make me come of age

Oh won’t you take a ride with me through the barrowland, our history, and I’ll sing you a song or two
People they may stop and stare but baby I just don’t care
It’s all I need, and knew
And they’ll drink and dance and don’t you know its all part of the show
We’re going to maybe have to tell you
The people they may stop and stare but baby I just don’t care
But tonight, its only me and you

08 - L.A.


Oh here’s a story about a boy named Jay
Nothing he did would ever get in my way
But there’s still a long long way to go

I’ve only ever seen his face on film
I’ve only ever heard the lines he’d say
But still they won’t get in my way

I’m always told to be the dreamer kind
Wake up one morning and your dreams are life
Never let them bring you down
Never let them tear me down
I always thought that I would follow you
Every place and everything you do
But I’m happy to be by myself
I don’t need no one else

He’s never ever seen my face before
I’m trying hard cos this I can’t ignore
But there’s still a long long way to go

I’m always told to be the dreamer kind
Wake up one morning and your dreams are life
Never let them bring you down
Never let them tear me down
I always thought that I would follow you
Every place and everything you do
But im happy to be by myself
I don’t need no one else

All my dreams are built around your face
And this place
All the times of staring at the sun
You’re the one
All my dreams are built around your face
And this place
All the times of staring at the sun
You’re the one

I’m always told to be the dreamer kind
Wake up one morning and your dreams are life
Never let them bring you down
Never let them tear me down
I always thought that I would follow you
Every place and everything you do
But I’m happy to be by myself
I don’t need no one else

I’m always told to be the dreamer kind
Wake up one morning and your dreams are life
Never let them bring you down
Never let them tear me down
I always thought that I would follow you
Every place and everything you do
But im happy to be by myself
I don’t need no one else

09 - A Wish For Something More


Oh the sun is shining far too bright
For it to still be night
Oh the air feels so cold, so cold and old
How can it be light?

Let’s take a walk outside
See the world through teach others eyes
I wish I was your only one

I think you’re beautiful but your hair is a mess
And your shoes are untied but that’s what I love best

And I, I wish I was the one, your one and only sun and you looked at me that way
I wish for long lingering glances
Fairy tale romances every single day
And you look at me and say I’m your best friend every day
But I wish for something, wish for something more
Oh I love you like a friend, but lets not pretend how I wish for something, wish for something more

Now the grass is so green, but I can’t see anything past your eyes
I’m fixated on your smile; your cherry lips make life worth while
I’m thinking these things while I’m trying to say
This lie gets in my way, every single day

And I, I wish I was the one, your one and only sun and you looked at me that way
I wish for long lingering glances
Fairy tale romances every single day
And you look at me and say I’m your best friend every day
But I wish for something, wish for something more
Oh I love you like a friend, but lets not pretend how I wish for something, wish for something more

Now this sun is fading, now the rain is coming down
And I’m looking at your face and you’re looking at the ground
I see diamonds in your dreams, I see pearls around your neck,
I see everything that’s beautiful, oh everything that’s beautiful

I wish I was the one, your one and only sun and you looked at me that way
I wish for long lingering glances
Fairy tale romances every single day
And you look at me and say I’m your best friend every day
But I wish for something, wish for something more
Oh I love you like a friend, but lets not pretend how I wish for something, wish for something more

10 - Footballer's Wife


Oh Mr James Dean, he don't belong to anything
Oh he left before they could get him
With their ways, their wicked ways

Oh Marilyn Monroe, where did you go?
I didn't hear all your stories
I didn't see all your glory

But the footballer's wife tells her troubles and strife
I just don't care in the end
Who is she to pretend
That she's one of them?
I don't think so
And the girl from that show
Yes the one we all know
She thinks she's some kinda star
Yes you know who you are
I don't think so, I don't think so

Oh Ginger Rogers, Fred Astaire
Won't you dance for me cos I just don't care
What's going on today
I think there's something more, something more

And I'm gone with the wind like they were before
But I'm believing myself I think there's something more
There must be something more
I think there's something more, something more

But still the footballer's wife tells her troubles and strife
I just don't care in the end
Who is she to pretend
That she's one of them?
I don't think so
And the girl from that show
Yes the one we all know
She thinks she's some kinda star
Yes you know who you are
I don't think so, I don't think so

Oh I don't believe in the telling of your stories
Throughout your life, there's just something unappealing
It don't catch my eye
It don't catch my eye
Oh I don't believe in the selling of your glories
Before you leave this life, there's so much more to see
I don't believe this is how the world should be

But still the footballer's wife tells her troubles and strife
I just don't care in the end
Who is she to pretend
That she's one of them?
I don't think so
And the girl from that show
Yes the one we all know
She thinks she's some kinda star
Yes you know who you are
I don't think so, I don't think so

The footballer's wife tells her troubles and strife
I just don't care in the end
Who is she to pretend
That she's one of them?

11 - The Road To Home


Oh the leaves are falling from the trees
And the snow is coming, don’t you know?
But I’ll still remember which way to go
I’m on the road, the road to home

Oh the sound is fading in my ears
And I can’t believe I’ve lasted all these years
But I’ll still remember which way to go
I’m on the road, the road to home

Oh the light is fading all the time
And this life I’m in it seems to pass me by
But I’ll still remember which way to go
I’m on the road, the road to home

Now I must say good bye
Keep telling myself “now don’t you cry”
But I’m here where I belong
I’ll see you soon, it won’t be long
I’ll see you soon, it won’t be long
I’ll see you soon, it won’t be long

12 - Caledonia


I don't know if you can see
The changes that have come over me
In these last few days I've been afraid
That I might drift away
So I've been telling old stories, singing songs
That make me think about where I came from
And that's the reason why I seem
So far away today

Oh, but let me tell you that I love you
That I think about you all the time
Caledonia you're calling me
And now I'm going home
If I should become a stranger
You know that it would make me more than sad
Caledonia's been everything
I've ever had
