Track Name: Leave The Lights On (original)
Turning stones; I've been sat here quite a while.
Don't complicate things 'cause you know I never argue.

Cunning twist; where the best plans always fail.
I'm a pacifist and I wish I could fight back.

(September) I'm growing too attached, stop me growing too attached.

Fallen leaves and the sunlight's getting low.
This fine mind's getting so damn obscure.

Leave the lights on, leave the lights on,
Leave the lights on, leave the lights on.

(September) I'm growing too attached, stop me growing too attached.

"Selves - goes itself; myself it speaks and spells"
Track Name: How Big Am I?
I offered you comfort in friendship,
but you found it in the tension of today.
And when I see you smile I see it takes a while
to form upon your face; it's always in it's place.

I was over protective of the past
I thought nothing need change,
but I was over protective.
And I'll pretend that nothing need change.

I offered you comfort in friendship,
but you found it in the friction of today.
I offered you something for forever
but you knew it was forever and always,
not forever and in all ways.

I was over protective of the past
I thought nothing need change,
but I was over protective.
And I'll pretend that nothing need change.

Tell me a simple lie.
Tell me we're not that bored.
Tell me you don't believe
that you belong in these places.

I was over protective of the past
I thought nothing need change,
but I was over protective.
And I'll pretend that nothing need change.

I was not despondent
Track Name: Fire Engines
These friends of mine, they kick me when I'm down.
but I don't mind, if they still want me around.
If it's cold outside, well I will not wear a coat.
I need my pride, no matter how small I need it all.

Is it cool to be sad when you're young?
Is it fine to be fine?
When you're trying as hard as you can,
I guess we'd all like the perfect plan.

You're all the same, so much so that it doesn't matter
Who you go home with and you're comfortable with this.
What my friends don't know, is that in my spare time I follow
Fire engines, because I want to know where they are going.

Is it cool to be sad when you're young?
Is it fine to be fine?
When you're trying as hard as you can,
I guess we'd all like this perfect plan.
Track Name: Highlights Of Your Life
Seventeen and disillusioned, that is just the start.
Now you know promises are fleeting.
Years ago your Mother told you (that) you would be a 'star'.
Those dreams: they're not worth repeating,

To anyone, not to anyone.
But they were fun for a while.

So you wait around for 'Prince Charming', but he will never come.
So you end up ending up with ending up with anyone.
He's got a car, he's got money but that is not enough.
And you don't need me to tell you that he's cheating.

But you trust anyone, you trust anyone.
And it was fun for a while.

So dance all night, this is your life and these are highlights.
So drink to be happy for a while, and laugh all night.

Twenty-three and past defending, that is just your luck.
Even so i hate to say 'I told you so',
i hate to say 'I told you so', I hate to say I told you,

You trust anyone, you trust anyone.
And it was fun for a while.

Don't trust anyone, don't trust anyone.
