Track Name: On The Stairs
On the stairs I watch the world go by
Domestic war on the second floor and I
Walk round pools of sick on the floor
Reading Blake on the wall

On the stairs it’s hard and fair but why
Is there blood and bone and cries and groans? Don’t lie
Because justice is its own reward
We’re carving that in every door

It’s up and down around me
And I don’t know where to go
No I don’t know where to go

On the stairs oh love’s so hard to find
A hundred bills and I’m way behind
But you and I oh we’ll run away
We’ll leave here today

It’s up and down around me
And I don’t know where to go
No I don’t know where to go

It’s up and down around me
And I don’t know where to go
No I don’t know where to go
Track Name: Back In Town
You know they told me you were back in town
How’s the afterlife of nine to five? It keeps you paying for the brown
So sweet and eighteen, you’ve got one on the way
It’s not the best place to be, remember how I really wanted you to stay

And all the old crowd now are losing touch
Well we tried so hard but in the end, I know you know it’s all too much
You and I agree this isn’t the way it’s meant to be
I swear now on my soul that it’d be different oh if it was up to me

But it’ll never be the same
No it’ll never be the same
No it’ll never be the same

Well I’d love to meet up for a coffee and a chat
But I’m working all the time, then there’s my family oh I hope you understand
Everyone’s losing it and I can’t cope
And then there’s all the strain of every day and we’ve all started losing hope

And it’ll never be the same
No it’ll never be the same
No it’ll never be the same

And it’ll never be the same
No it’ll never be the same
No it’ll never be the same

And when they told me you were back in town
Well my spirits lifted briefly before sinking oh and they began to drown
In the sorrow of tomorrow’s pain
Just going through the motions and we’re all just waiting for another day
Track Name: Tales Of Lovers And Thieves
Gather round, I’ll tell you a tale
A tale about honesty and betrayal
Amongst lovers and thieves
Winter’s breeze and Summer’s dreams

We’d take it all, and we’d sail away
We’d take it all, and we’d take it every day
And it means so much to you
And it means so much to me

And that’s how we want it to stay
Yeah we want to keep it that way

It’s not enough, we wanted more
It’s never enough, down on old England’s shore
And we’ll give nothing back
Yeah we’ll raise our glasses to that

But we didn’t get very far
We made it all the way out to your car
Then we went back inside
Put on the kettle and Channel 5

And that’s how we want it to stay
Yeah we want to keep it that way
And that’s how we want it to stay
Yeah we want to keep it that way

And that’s how we want it to stay
Yeah we want to keep it that way
And that’s how we want it to stay
Yeah we want to keep it that way

Gather round, I’ll tell you a tale
A tale about honesty and betrayal
Amongst lovers and thieves
Whatever happened to lovers and thieves?
Track Name: What We Left Behind
You light a cigarette, and I try not to forget
They were the best of days
And as we said farewell, yeah we wondered to ourselves
Did it all go to waste?

We’d duck and dive, entrepreneurs
Do you remember how we were so inseparable?
Was it a blessing or a curse?
From the cradle to the hearse, our friendship’s come and gone

Is it too much to hope to start again?
Is it too much to hope it isn’t quite the end?
It won’t be too hard, it’ll be just like old times
Then we’ll find what we left behind
Where did it go?

The Summers seemed so fast, I wonder
Oh whatever happened to those dreams of ours?
They blew away like Autumn leaves
As we went from thick as thieves to being worlds apart

Is it too much to hope to start again?
Is it too much to hope it isn’t quite the end?
It won’t be too hard, it’ll be just like old times
Then we’ll find what we left behind
Where did it go?

And it was never quite enough
No it was never quite enough
It was never quite enough
Oh no

Is it too much to hope to start again?
Is it too much to hope it isn’t quite the end?
It won’t be too hard, it’ll be just like old times
But can we ever find what we left behind?
Can we ever find what we left behind?
I guess we’ll never know
