Track Name: It Doesn't Get Any Better Than This
You found a window into my soul
I tried to help you, tried to let you know
What hides behind all those half-closed doors
Those hidden secrets that are mine not yours

The dreams we have they may fade away
I fight for each and every word I say
I hope one day you will understand
Just what it is you’re holding in your hands

It doesn’t get any better than this
Like when you’ve found something lost that you’ve missed
When you’d give it all away for one more kiss
It doesn’t get any better than this

I’ve found a window into your mind
Those inner places that you keep inside
And what you gave to me I cannot say
'Cause you’re too beautiful in every way

It doesn’t get any better than this
Like when you’ve found something lost that you’ve missed
When you’d give it all away for one more kiss
It doesn’t get any better than this

It doesn’t get any better than this
Like when you’ve found something lost that you’ve missed
When you’d give it all away for one more kiss
It doesn’t get any better than this
Better than this
Better than this
Better than this
Track Name: Round My Head
Gear four to five
And I’m so high
Find the right to pull out from those lines

Well the trucks slow me down
They make me frown
Sun so hot it burns my crown

Round and round my head
It feels so right
Every time I see your love in sight

M2 is such a heavy five
It’s the same each and every time
Wish this town was really hard to find

Round and round my head
It feels so right
Every time I see your love in sight

Round and round in circles
You make me feel alive
Round and round in circles
Every second time

Round and round my head
It feels so right
Every time I feel your love inside
Round and round my head
It feels so right
Every time I see your love in sight
See your love in sight
Track Name: House Of Glass
I’ve watched a while and I’ve seen some things
I’ve seen my love and all the hurt it brings
I went out walking and I lost my way
Too many things I didn’t think to say

I see the pain reflected in your eyes
I’ll try to fit you into my disguise
But when you tell me what I ought to be
It’s just my tendancy to disagree

‘Cause we’re both living in a house of glass
We’re throwing stones at people as they pass
And we’re just waiting while they wear their frowns
For that day when the walls come crashing down

I’ve carried troubles that nobody knows
They fell on me just like a hail of blows
And what my eyes can see my hands can rob
'Cause loneliness is still my steady job

So crowd me in with all your empty threats
And we’ll kid ourselves it matters in the end
I learnt my lesson and I learnt it well
But if it helped me only time will tell

‘Cause we’re still living in our house of glass
We’re throwing stones at people as they pass
And we’re just waiting while they wear their frowns
For that day when the walls come crashing down
Crashing down
Crashing down, down, down, down
Crashing down

And I’m still living in my house of glass
I’m throwing stones at people as they pass
And they’re just waiting while I wear my frown
For that day when the walls come crashing down
Track Name: Somewhere Watching Me
Stepping out among the leaves I
Feel the touch of Autumn breeze and
I like to think you’re somewhere watching me

Walking round in Winter chills I’m
With the one who gives me thrills and
I like to think you’re somewhere watching me

Walking round with Spring in my step
I like to feel that this is the best yet
I’d like to think you’re somewhere watching me

Stepping out in Summer swelter
I'm with the one that gives me shelter
I’d like to think you’re somewhere watching me

Jealousy - I hope it burns
Like all the lessons
You never learned

Can you see now just what I’ve got?
She’s everything and more that you’re not
I really hope you’re somewhere watching me

Somewhere watching me
Somewhere watching me
Somewhere watching me
Track Name: All My Life
The first time I saw you there were bright lights
I remember it made me shiver deep inside
Said “hello, is it me that you’ve been looking for?”
I want to know if you’ll be with me forever more

All my life I wanted you to try
To be with me until I die
All I do is think of you
Hoping you’ll be with me oh so soon

Wandered down the road with you to find our new life
Didn’t think that one day you would be my wife
Guitar on my back, that’s all we need babe
To find our way down that old never-ending lane

All my life I wanted you to try
To be with me until I die
All I see is what you want from me
So I can believe in what you do

All I wanted was to feel you in my arms, oh baby
To see the gaze of “where to?”
Help me now I’m falling to my knees, oh baby
Pick me up and tell me “I love you”

I gave my love and soul and don’t you think twice
I can’t give any more but you said that it’s alright
No time in this world will make us quit
It’s our love that spins the world if it sees fit, and I said

All my life I wanted you to try
To be with me until I die
All I see is what you want from me
So I can believe in what you do
Track Name: Secrets & Lies
Time out of mind
Hide out of sight
I don’t believe
What I don’t see

Hand on your heart
Wisdom impart
Tried hard to make it
But we couldn’t fake it

If you’re not afraid then it's not real
What your heart won’t touch
Your mind won’t feel

Tell me your story, I’ll tell you mine
Tell you my secrets, you tell me lies

Bent over backwards
Tripped over my words
Way down it’s tragic
Emotional baggage

Cracked in the head
Fell into bed
Cracked in the heart
We fell apart

If you’re not afraid then it's not real
What your heart won’t touch
Your mind won’t feel

Tell me your story, I’ll tell you mine
Tell me your secrets, I'll tell you lies

Tell me your story, I’ll tell you mine
Tell you my secrets, you tell me lies

Tell me your story, I’ll tell you mine
Tell me your secrets, I'll tell you lies
Track Name: Everybody Come On
I’ve been out looking for what I can’t find
I sometimes feel like I got left behind
But when the lights go out and I can’t see
Then I know you’ll be there to carry me

I’ve been here chewing on the same old bone
I need to find something to call my own
But when the sound fades out and I can’t hear
I need to know that somehow you’ll be near

Not everybody gets a second chance
Not everybody gets that one last dance
Not everybody’s got a heart of gold
Not everybody sees their dreams unfold

Come on, come on
Come on, come on
Everybody come on

I’ve been the loser in more ways than one
I’ve been left standing while the race was run
But all the tears you cry will never pay
For what you had and what you gave away

Not everybody gets a second chance
Not everybody gets that one last dance
Not everybody’s got a heart of gold
Not everybody sees their dreams unfold

Come on, come on
Come on, come on
Everybody come on

I’ve been out looking for what I can’t find
I sometimes feel like I got left behind
But when the lights go out and I can’t see
Then I know you’ll be there to carry me

And maybe we will have our second chance
And maybe we will get that one last dance
'Cause I know you have got a heart of gold
And one day we will see our dreams unfold

Come on, come on
Come on, come on
Everybody come on

Come on, come on
Come on, come on
Everybody come on
