If this sounds familiar there's good reason The words were blowing in the breeze and I just picked them up out of thin air Don't listen too close, i don't want you Disappointed though this may haunt you in Your sleep, though you won't even care 'Cos i'm a one hit wonder, baby you can't have any more You've heard it all before I'm a one hit wonder, baby you can't have any more You might say that it's peculiar That i'm always trying to fool you Telling you that i am feeling fine I wanna be just like i used to But i'm feeling so confused and You're so far away most of the time And i'm a one hit wonder, baby you can't have any more You've heard it all before I'm a one hit wonder, baby you can't have any more Singing truths that only i can see Living life, why do you disagree? Where once were two there now is only me I'm only singing words after all If this sounds familiar there's good reason The words were blowing in the breeze and I just picked them up out of thin air I haven't quite said what i wanted to say yet I wrote this song for you but i bet You won't even notice that it's there

Come in and make yourself at home you said As i walked in through the door Hang your coat up on the hook you said And don't tread mud into the floor But don't get too comfortable This situation's just on loan You'll be moving on far sooner than you think So don't treat this place like home We do this and we do that you said Expecting me to say the same I do anything i like i said I didn't want to play your game But don't get too comfortable This situation's just on loan You'll be moving on far sooner than you think So don't treat this place like home They say that home is where the heart is Well in that case my home's in my chest This place might not be a home sweet home But at least it's a place where i can finally get some rest

Modern Man 03:07
I get up early, get out of bed Shake the cobwebs from my head Put on my clothes, switch on the TV While i try to figure out what's wrong with me Uh huh, oh yeah, i'm an undereducated member of the public Uh huh, oh yeah, pay no attention to me Uh huh, oh yeah, i'm a money scrounging student who has no rights Uh huh, oh yeah, what else could i be? Well i'm overdomesticated and my brain's gone numb I'll never get a job 'cause i'm a lower class bum Yes i know i'll never be any use As i stumble down the stairs and drink some orange juice Uh huh, oh yeah, i'm an undereducated member of the public Uh huh, oh yeah, pay no attention to me Uh huh, oh yeah, i'm a money scrounging student who has no rights Uh huh, oh yeah, what else could i be? Think of all the things i could do If i put my mind to the job Don't you think i'm just a bit like you Or do you think you're different from the mob?

Could be the colour of the morning sky Could be the colour of the trees Could be the colour of a smiling sun Could be the colour of the breeze What colour is your life? Is it orange, yellow white or green? What colour is your life? 'Cos if you want to be noticed, you've got to get seen Could be the colour of the clouds above Beautiful colours all around So many colours now that i'm in love Colourful happiness i've found

Sleepytime 04:26
Sleepytime, yes it's sleepytime The birds have started singing And it's getting light, getting light Sleepytime, sleepytime My eyes are welded open I've been up all night, up all night They say that if you're having fun the time passes real quickly Well i can't be having fun then 'Cause i've been up all night and i just can not get to sleep Sleepytime, sleepytime The sun has started shining And the morning breaks, morning breaks Sleepytime, sleepytime The wheels have started turning As the city wakes, yeah the city wakes They say that if you're having fun the time passes real quickly Well i can't be having fun then 'Cause i've been up all night and i just can not get to sleep
6.
Politics, politics, don't talk to me about Politics, politics, i couldn't care less All you every talk about is politics, politics There's other things that matter in this world today Well i ain't got no money and nothing to eat Ain't got no job and no house and no friends and i got no place to sleep I got problems that are out of this world So don't talk to me about politics, girl
7.
This time i didn't follow you Because now i understand Life's not always easy And sometimes can't be planned Where do we go from here? What are we doing now? We'll have to take control of our lives, again, somehow We thought it would be sunshine But it was violent climate change And with the passion of a hurricane Our lives were disarranged Where do we go from here? What are we doing now? We'll have to take control of our lives, again, somehow And just how long Can this go on Are we still alive Or do we just survive? Where do we go from here? What are we doing now? We'll have to take control of our lives, again, somehow
8.
We've got a lot of potential but where does it go? You don't have to tell me 'cos i know you know 'Cos everything's perfect and we'll be so happy For the rest of our lives We'll take out the garbage and switch on the TV And eat shepherd's pie for the rest of our lives We've got a lot of indifference to what is out there We've got ourselves in a nice place, so what do we care? We can be happy for the rest of our lives til the end We'll be happy when we start it all over again For the rest of our lives

Thank You 02:41
You were there when i needed you You gave me the gift of your voice Just for a moment you touched my life And the way i felt, i had no choice Thank you for the time you spent with me You helped me feel alive again and now i am so free Now i'm wondering how long it will be Before i see you again I couldn't take my eyes away from you 'Cos something had changed inside When you sang, when you smiled, when you spoke to me I felt my soul begin to fly Thank you for the time you spent with me You helped me feel alive again and now i am so free Now i'm wondering how long it will be Before i see you again One day our paths will cross again We'll both live our separate lives 'til then And i know we always will be friends But i miss you Thank you for the time you spent with me You helped me feel alive again and now i am so free Now i'm wondering how long it will be Before i see you again

Words issue from my mouth And make me think about The things that i can't say today Tea with milk and sugar please Serve it up with cheese And eat it with a piece of toast What's the name you always notice? Standing in the wind and singing Where's the thing you once were proud of? I can hear the distance ringing true Think about what you have done Avoiding all the sun And standing in the rain with me Whats the thing that you fear most? Is it still the ghost Of things that never quite were true? What's the name you always notice? Standing in the wind and singing Where's the thing you once were proud of? I can hear the distance ringing true Long, drawn out Sing or shout Think of who Who are you? Now the rain has gone away But only for today Tomorrow could bring anything Please stay right here with me I just want to see If you would help me when i sing
