Track Name: Meanings of Life
When everything's been said
And everything's been seen
And after all is done
In every wildest dream
When every truth's been told
And every lesson learned
And every answer found
And every victory earned

What about us?
What about me?
What do we do?
What do we mean?

We do it all again
We do it all again
We do it all again
We do it all again
Track Name: Unconditional
There's something that I've gotta say
I know we get caught up in the day by day
But it don't need to take a minute or two
To remind you

That we've been through so much
These words just ain't enough
It's unconditional
And I don't care at all
If it's dysfunctional
It's Unconditional

Sometimes I stop and I just watch you
And I wonder if you only knew
That I'm the richest person alive
'Cos I have known you and had you in my life

Though life can be so tough
It never changes us
'Cos it's unconditional
We fight, we break
And God knows we make mistakes
But it's unconditional

Home, home
Wherever you are is my home

I can't imagine life without you there
And I wanna say thankyou for everything

And I wouldn't change a single part
Of this crazy journey of ours
It's unconditional
There's nothing you could ever do
To stop me loving you
It's unconditional
Track Name: Hometown
I know sometimes we love to hate it
But let's show a little celebrating
And raise a glass for the times that have passed
In this town, even when it's knackered and shut down
I don't take it for granted now
I can see it was on these streets

Where I felt like a loser, felt like a King
Got my heart broken and fell in love again
It's no fairy tale but this is the land
Where the stories were written that made me what I am so...

Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah
Always remember from where you came
Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah
'Cos home is where the heart is
Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah
We both change but it stays the same
Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah

Slow down, just take a minute
And know now the moment while you're in it
And raise a glass for those that have passed
'Cos I've been over to the other side
And I think that we're doing alright
And I'm proud of this town

Where I made my mistakes and paid my dues
Met a few legends and nutters too
I made th ebest of you and a mess of me
But you couldn't pput a price on these memories so...

Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah
Always remember from where you came
Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah
'Cos home is where the heart is
Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah
We both change but it stays the same
Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah

Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah
Always remember from where you came
Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah
'Cos home is where the heart is
Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah
We both change but it's always the same
Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah
Track Name: Keeping On
They say the Devil makes work for idle hands
And fear scares the life out of the best laid plans

But failure ain't failing
It's depriving yourself of the life you get from trying
This is a call to distraction

Maybe one day we will get there
Maybe we won't and we won't care
Maybe the road leads to nowhere
But a lifetime's guaranteed
The destination you only need
To keep you keeping on

Hero's walk among us and we don't know everyday
'Cos the world ain't running on cameo's, no way

And a game needs more than just winners
You learn better lessons from good losers
We are the sky between the stars

Maybe one day we will get there
Maybe we won't and we won't care
Maybe the road leads to nowhere
But a lifetime's guaranteed
The destination you only need
To keep you keeping on

Track Name: Just a Man
Oh baby, I'm a mess
And i just can't pretend anymore
Oh baby, I'm sorry
'Cos I'm just not what you've been waiting for

I really tried to climb so high
But I've let you down
And this is all thats left

So can you still love me if I'm just a man
Do you still want me now you know that's all I am
I know I didn't alwways get it right
But I never did you wrong
I'm just a man but I'm all yours

Oh baby, I'm broken
I'm just as scared as you and I don't know the answers
But oh baby, you know I love you
And I always did the best I could

I know that life can be so unfair
And the battle's never won
But I wanna fight it with you

So can you still love me if I'm just a man
Do you still want me now you know that's all I am
I know I didn't always get it right
But I never did you wrong
I'm just a man but I'm all yours

There's a relief that comes from failure
And just watching it all crash down
Now I'm naked among the ruins
And all that's left is all I really need

Can you still love me if I'm just a man
Do you still want me now you know that's all I am
'Cos I wont always get it right
But I will never do you wrong
I'm just a man, I'm just a man
I'm just a man but I'm all yours
Track Name: Entertainer
The lights go down once more
And I'm packed away within these walls
And it's not like before
When we all thought it was real

What started with meaning
Caught on fire
And became a smokesreen

I'm your entertainer
I'll wash you in my shine
And once I've entertained ya
I'm hanging out to dry
We've got a one dimensional, expectational
Temporary love
I'm your entertainer
So maybe for a while, we can both pretend

I live on plastic screens, magazines
Fantasies and dreams
But if you dare to see my reality
I could use the company

Whats started with feeling
Became a machine
And I'm lost as sea

I'm your entertainer
I wash you in my shine
And once I've entertained ya
I'm hanging out to dry
It's a one directional, insta-ttainable
Superficial love
I'm your entertainer
So maybe for a while, we can both pretend

I can be anything
But I can't be anything else

When you're on top of the world
The only way is down
Will anyone catch me

I'm your entertainer
'But I feed on it'
I wash you in my shine
'Like you feed on me'
And once I've entertained ya
'But I feed on it'
I'm hanging out to dry
'Like you feed on me'
Oh I'm your entertainer
I'll wash you in my shine
And once I've entertained ya
I'm hanging out to dry
It's irresistable, so sensational
We can't get enough
I'm your entertainer
And I wish that tonight would never end
Track Name: Reckless
Nice to meet ya, but I can't ignore this chemistry
I can read ya and baby there's no need to be
A teaser, we could skip from A to B
So I can teach ya, some things you've never seen

I'm only saying what's on our minds
Can't blame a man for trying
Life can get crazy so why waste time
Playing and denying

I know what you want, you know what I want
Just seize the moment when 2 right's can't be wrong
Girl lets move along, what we waiting on?
We ain't fooling no one when 2, 2 right's can't be wrong

I wanna please ya, you'll be the star of the show
I'll unleash ya and no one will ever know
How I feast ya, sensory overload
Girl I need ya, so come on let's hit the road

My cards are all on the table now
So how you gonna play it
We can run but we can't hide now
So I'm just gonna say it

I know what you want, you know what I want
Just seize the moment when 2 right's can't be wrong
Girl lets move along, what we waiting on?
We ain't fooling no one when 2, 2 right's can't be wrong

We can make this night one we won't forget
Surrender to desire
And just maybe we might do it some time again
If you're lucky

I know what you want, you know what I want
Just seize the moment when 2 right's can't be wrong
Girl lets move along, what we waiting on?
We ain't fooling no one when 2, 2 right's can't be wrong

Track Name: Misfits
When you know, you know
And you never forget
My heart still races out of control for you
Just like the moment we first met

You're quirky and you're cool
You're beautiful right through
You're an adorably frustrating puzzle I can't crack
And I hope I never do

You and me are misfits
That fit eachother perfect
Sometimes I can't believe it
It's too good to be true

Everything I do
I always wanna share it with you
You're my best friend, you're my partner in crime
And I wanna grow old with you

You're all my answers and all my reasons
You bring sunshine to all my seasons
You're more than just The One
You're my everything

You and me are misfits
That fit eachother perfect
I don't know how I deserve it
It's like a dream come true

And I know that a thousand songs about you couldn't say it all
But I hope you know just how much I love you baby

You and me are misfits
That fit eachother perfect
Sometimes I can't believe it
It's too good to be true

You and me are misfits
That fit eachother perfect
I don't know how I deserve it
It's like a dream come true
It's like a dream come true
It's like a dream come true
You're my dream come true
Track Name: Forbidden
I'm the stray Dog in the alley
I'm the answer when you're alone
I'm the Vulture that you're hunting
I'm your Master, I'm your Slave

And you can use me
And throw me away

We are perfect
For tonight
Trapped in different lives
We keep eachother alive
Forbidden fruit

I'm your dirty little secret
At the backdoor when you call
I'm a shadow, I'm a Ghost
I'll be your darkest fantasy

And we break all the rules
All the rules but one

We are perfect
For tonight
It's a special kind of love
That we can't speak of
Forbidden fruit

We break all the rules
We break all the rules
We break all the rules but one
We break all the rules
We break all the rules
We break all the rules but one
Track Name: Home
I've lived inside the darkened tunnel
Crawling t'ward the light
That never got closer
I've sunk in waves of fear and doubt
With the pressure forcing me down
And I have surrendered

And I have hit the floor
With nowhere left to fall
And that's where I was reborn

So I am letting go of all these chains
And I'll walk in to the wilderness
With my head held high as me, myself and I
Even as the arrows rain
I know that I will overcome
If I'm alright with me, myself and I

I've kept hope in vicious circles
Empty promises and closed minds
And I never learned
I've taken burdens, blows and blame
And given years in vain
Never to be enough

So who needs enemies
When we do their deeds
Better to ourselves

So I am letting go of all these chains
And I'll walk in to the wilderness
With my head held high as me, myself and I
Even as the arrows rain
I know that I will overcome
If I'm alright with me, myself and I

So I am letting go of all these chains
And I'll walk in to the wilderness
With my head held high as me, myself and I
Even as the arrows rain down
I know that I will overcome
'Cos I'm alright with me, myself
'Cos I'm alright with me, myself
'Cos I'm alright with me, myself and I
