Track Name: The Big Wheel
THE BIG WHEEL
WELL YOU WALK LIKE YOU’RE IN A MOVIE
AND YOUR WORDS ARE POETRY
I CAN’T CALCULATE HOW MUCH YOU IMPROVE ME
OR HOW MUCH YOU MEAN TO ME

LIKE THE FIRST SCREAM ON THE BIG WHEEL
YOU MAKE ME FEEL ALIVE
TO THE LAST SCENE OF THE PICTURE
YOU MAKE ME FEEL COMPLETE

LIKE THE FIRST PAGE OF YOUR DIARY
YOU MAKE ME FEEL BRAND NEW
WITH YOUR HAND HOLDING MINE ON THE BIG WHEEL
YOU MAKE ME FREE FROM FEAR

WATCH THE RAIN AS IT RUNS DOWN THE WINDOW
FROM THE SAFETY OF YOUR ARMS
BECAUSE YOU FILL MY DREAMS WITH AMBROSIA
I CAN’T WAIT FOR SLEEP TO COME

LIKE A FULL MOON ON A CLEAR NIGHT
YOU MAKE ME FEEL SO RIGHT
LIKE THE BOY FALLING FROM THE BIG WHEEL
I FALL FOR YOU
I FALL FOR YOU
I FALL FOR YOU
Track Name: A New Way of Thinking
A NEW WAY OF THINKING
FOR SO LONG LIFE’S COMING AT ME LIKE IT’S A KICK IN THE TEETH
FROZEN AND FRACTURED I HAVEN’T HAD MY TROUBLES TO SEEK

BUT I’VE GOT A NEW WAY OF THINKING MY GLASS IS FULL AND MY SHIP’S NOT SINKING
I CAN’T WAIT FOR TODAY TO COME SPEEDING STRAIGHT MY WAY

I’M LIKE A NEW MAN OF ACTION! CLARK KENT’S GOT NOTHING ON ME
BUT YOU SEEM QUIET THESE DAYS I DON’T THINK YOU REALLY BELIEVE

THAT I’VE GOT A NEW SENSE OF PURPOSE
SPEAKING UP FOR MYSELF AND I DON’T CARE
I’VE GOT NOTHING TO SAY I’M GONNA SAY IT ANYWAY

I’VE GOT A NEW WAY OF THINKING MY GLASS IS FULL AND MY SHIP’S NOT SINKING
I CAN’T WAIT FOR TODAY TO COME SPEEDING STRAIGHT MY WAY
Track Name: Singalong
SINGALONG
I WANNA BE FAMOUS DON’T WANNA BE A NOBODY NO MORE
I DON’T EVEN CARE WHAT I’M FAMOUS FOR
I WANNA BE RECOGNISED IN PLACES
WHERE THEY RECOGNISE PEOPLE’S FACES

I WANNA HAVE MONEY MORE MONEY THAN I’M EVER GONNA SPEND
JUST AS LONG AS I’VE GOT MORE THAN ALL MY FRIENDS
I THINK I’LL SHOW THEM ROUND
SHOW THEM LIFE IN THIS PART OF TOWN

WHERE DID IT ALL COME FROM
THEY WERE SIMPLE TIMES AND WE WERE ROLLING ALONG
AND IF SOMEONE SANG A SONG
WE WERE HAPPY ENOUGH TO JUST SINGALONG

I WANNA HAVE A GIRFLFRIEND NOT THE KIND OF GIRL YOU TAKE TO MUM AND DAD
THE KIND OF GIRL WHO THROWS HER TOYS OUT OF THE PRAM
I DON’T CARE IF SHE’S SEEING OTHER PEOPLE
I WANT THE KIND OF GIRL WHO’S SEEN WITH OTHER PEOPLE

I WANNA HAVE A MANSION BIG ENOUGH TO HOUSE THE WHOLE COMMUNITY
BUT I’D KEEP IT JUST FOR ME
I DON’T CARE WHAT PEOPLE SAY
I WANNA LIVE A DIFFERENT ROOM EACH DAY

WHERE DID IT ALL COME FROM
THEY WERE SIMPLE TIMES AND WE WERE ROLLING ALONG
AND IF SOMEONE SANG A SONG
WE WERE HAPPY ENOUGH TO JUST SINGALONG

I WANNA BE A BIG STAR HEAR MY NAME AND SEE MY FACE UP ON THE SCREEN
TALK TO GLOSSY MAGAZINES
THEY’RE GONNA WANT TO ASK ME WHO I’M SEEING
WANNA KNOW WHAT IT’S LIKE BEING

FAMOUS!!
Track Name: Martine (and Me)
MARTINE (AND ME)
MARTINE GOES OUT LOOKING FOR ADVENTURE
LOOKING FOR SOME MYSTERY
SEES HERSELF AS A GREAT EXPLORER
BUT ALL SHE FINDS IS ME
WITH MY FAULTS AND MY FLAWS AND MY LACK OF AMBITION
HAPPY IN FRONT OF THE TV
MARTINE GOES OUT LOOKING FOR A CRAZY LOVER
BUT ALL SHE FINDS IS ME

MARTINE LIVES LIFE WITHOUT INHIBITIONS
WHAT WILL BE WILL BE
WON’T BE GOVERENED BY FAITH OR CONVENTION
FUELLED BY ECSTASY
WATCHING THE WORLD THROUGH THE BOTTOM OF A BOTTLE
WHILE I DRINK MY CUP OF TEA
I DON’T THINK I’M THE GUY SHE’S BEEN DREAMING OF
BUT MARTINE DISAGREES

MARTINE LIVES LIFE ON THE EDGE OF A KNIFE
DOESN’T WANT TO BE TIED DOWN
DOESN’T WANT TO BE SOMEBODY’S WIFE
OBLIVIOUS TO THE SCENE SHE’S STARTED
SHE CAN’T SEE I’M BREAKING DOWN
CAN’T SEE I’M BROKENHEARTED
SASSY AND WISE CAN’T TELL BEHIND THOSE EYES
STARTING FIGHTS IN AN EMPTY ROOM
SAYS A CHANGE IS GONNA COME REAL SOON
WHEN THEY HEAR THE SOUND OF A WAR
THE PEOPLE NEXT DOOR SAY
THAT’S JUST MARTINE

MARTINE DECIDES WITH THE ROLL OF A DICE
SHE’LL TRY EVERYTHING
BUT SHE WON’T DO ANYTHING TWICE
SHE’S GOT A GUN AND SHE’S WAVING IT FOR FUN
I’VE GOT MY CALCULATOR
THESE BILLS I CAN’T PAY LATER
THE POLICE ARE CALLED TO GUNSHOTS AND SMALL EXPLOSIONS
I’VE GOT MY HEAD BOWED DOWN
TRY TO BLOCK OUT THIS COMMOTION
WHEN THE COPS BURST IN THEY THINK THEY’RE GONNA FIND
BONNIE AND CLYDE BUT ALL THEY FIND IS
MARTINE AND ME
Track Name: Everything
EVERYTHING
LIFE’S TOO SHORT YOU GOTTA TAKE THE BEST PARTS
AND BLEED THEM TIL THEY’RE DRY AND LIVE THEM TO GET HIGH
SEND A LIST TO THE STARS UP IN THE SKY
AND FILL IT UP WITH THINGS YOU WANNA DO BEFORE YOU DIE

WHERE D’YOU WANNA GO EVERYWHERE
WHO D’YOU WANNA KNOW EVERYONE
WHAT D’YOU WANNA SEE EVERYTHING

WHAT’S THE POINT SEEKING SHELTER FROM THE RAIN
THERE’S GONNA COME A TIME WHEN YOU’RE SOAKING WET AGAIN
AND DON’T GO LOOKING FOR ANSWERS
YOU KNOW THAT THE QUESTIONS WILL BE THERE WHEN WE GO
AND IF YOU STAND WITH YOUR HANDS UP IN FRONT OF YOUR FACE
YOU’RE NEVER GONNA SEE THE SHOW

I CLOSE MY EYES AND PRAY FOR RAIN
I’VE GOT A HEADFUL OF IDEAS AND THEY’RE DRIVING ME INSANE

WHERE D’YOU WANNA GO EVERYWHERE
WHO D’YOU WANNA KNOW EVERYONE
WHAT D’YOU WANNA SEE EVERYTHING

YOU GOTTA LIVE FOR THE MOMENT AND SAVOUR EACH SECOND
LIKE EVERY DAY IS YOUR LAST
COS LIKE THAT GIRL OR THE SUNSHINE THE TRAIN ON THE SKYLINE
THEY ALL GO BY SO FAST

AND DON’T GO LOOKING FOR ANSWERS
YOU KNOW THAT THE QUESTIONS WILL BE THERE WHEN WE GO
AND IF YOU STAND WITH YOUR HANDS UP IN FRONT OF YOUR FACE
YOU’RE NEVER GONNA SEE IT
Track Name: George & Adele
GEORGE & ADELE
THIS IS WHAT YOU COULD HAVE WON
THIS IS SOMETHING THAT YOU JUST MISSED OUT ON
THE SAVIOURS OF THE INDUSTRY
SONGS WRITTEN OUT OF NECESSITY

AGENTS TALKING TO AGENTS
CANCEL ALL OTHER ENGAGEMENTS
IT’S GONNA BE THE HIT OF THE CENTURY

IT GOES ON AND ON
TRY SWITCHING THE TV ON WITHOUT
FINDING IT ON
IT GOES ON AND ON AND ON … WHOO!!

I’M SORRY IF I DON’T GET EXCITED
IT’S A PARTY AND I’M NOT INVITED
IT DOESN’T MEAN ANYTHING TO ME

DANCING ROUND LIKE THERE’S NO TOMORROW
YOUR HEAD IS EMPTY AND YOUR WORDS ARE HOLLOW
AND THEY DON’T MEAN ANYTHING TO ME

IT GOES ON AND ON
TRY SWITCHING THE TV ON WITHOUT
FINDING IT ON
IT GOES ON AND ON AND ON … WHOO!!

IT’S POCORN FOR THE SENSES
BUBBLEGUM FOR THE DUMB DEFENCELESS
THE POSSIBILITES ARE ENDLESS
THERE’S NO SHAME FOR THE SHAMELESS

THIS IS WHAT YOU COULD HAVE WON
THIS IS SOMETHING THAT YOU JUST MISSED OUT ON
IT’S GONNA BE THE HIT OF THE CENTURY

IT GOES ON AND ON ..
Track Name: The Boy You Met On Holiday
THE BOY YOU MET ON HOLIDAY

YOUR FIRST TIME ABROAD
A SHABBY HOTEL WAS ALL YOU COULD AFFORD
OFF THE STREET, ROUND THE CORNER BY THE BAY

AND AS THE WHEELS TOUCHED DOWN
YOU COULDN’T SEE A CLOUD FOR MILES AROUND
AND THE WEIGHT ON YOUR SHOULDERS SLIPPED AWAY

AND IF THINGS WENT AS PLANNED
YOU’D RUN YOUR FINGERS THROUGH THE SAND
OR THE HAIR OF SOME NEW LOVER

BUT YOUR PARENTS CONCERN
WAS THAT YOU’D FIND SOMEONE AND NEVER RETURN
LIKE THE BOY YOU MET ON HOLIDAY

AS YOU SIT IN A BAR
CONTENT THAT NO-ONE REALLY KNOWS WHO YOU ARE
AND FOR ONCEW YOU’RENOT THE ONLY ONE

SOMETIMES IT’S HARD TO DECIDE
WHAT YOU CAN TELL SOMEONE AND WHAT YOU SHOULD HIDE
AND LIFE’S NOT SO EASY WHEN YOU’RE YOUNG

AND WHEN YOU CATCH THE EYE
OF A STRANGER WALKING BY
YOU SAY NO THIS SEATS NOT TAKEN

AND AS HE TOUCHES YOUR HAND
YOU KNOW YOUR PARENTS WOULD NOT UNDERSTAND
THE BOY YOU MET ON HOLIDAY

AND HE SAID HE’D SHOW YOU ROUND
THE FORGOTTEN PARTS OF TOWN
WHERE NO-ONE EVERGOES

AND THE GLINT IN HIS EYES
YOU KNEW THAT HE WAS SAYING YOUR PLACE OR MINE
THE BOY YOU MET ON HOLIDAY

NOW YOU’RE STUCK IN YOUR ROOM
NO AMOUNT OF SUN COULD EVER SHINE THROUGH THE GLOOM
AND YOU FEEL MUCH OLDER BY THE DAY

BECAUSE YOU CAME HOME ALONE
WITH JUST A MEMORY NO ONE WANTS TO BRING HOME
OF THE BOY YOU MET ON HOLIDAY
Track Name: (Waiting for the) Good Times
(WAITING FOR THE) GOOD TIMES

WAITING FOR THE GOOD TIMES WAITING FOR THE GOOD TIMES x2

YOU SPENT SO LONG WORKING FOR THE MAN
PUTTING IN THE HOURS SAVING EVERY PENNY THAT YOU CAN
LOOKING OUT THE WINDOW TO THE STREET BELOW
JEALOUS OF THE PEOPLE WHO LOOK LIKE THEY’VE GOT SOMEWHERE TO GO

YOU SAY YOU’RE WAITING FOR THE GOOD TIMES
WAITING FOR THE GOOD TIMES
YOU HEARD IT ON THE NEWS
THE GOOD TIMES ARE COMING FOR YOU
JUST AROUND THE CORNER
BUT IF THEY NEVER COME
YOU’LL BE STANDING AT THE STATION
WAITING FOR A TRAIN THAT DOESN’T RUN

YOU SAY YOU WANNA SEE THE WORLD BUT MAYBE NOT TODAY
BUT IF THE EARTH KEEPS SPINNING WHAT MAKES YOU THINK THE WORLD IS GONNA WAIT
YOU’VE GOT A LIST OF PLACES THAT YOU WANNA GO
BUT WHY DO TODAY SOMETHING YOU CAN PUT OFF UNTIL TOMORROW

YOU SAY YOU’RE WAITING FOR THE GOOD TIMES
WAITING FOR THE GOOD TIMES
THEY’RE JUST AROUND THE CORNER
THE GOOD TIMES ARE COMING IN TO VIEW
WAITING FOR THE GOOD TIMES
WHAT IF THEY NEVER COME
YOU’LL BE SITTING IN YOUR ROOM
TICKING OFF THE THINGS YOU’VE NEVER DONE

YOU KNOW YOU’LL NEVER WIN A RACE YOU NEVER RUN
BEING WEALTHY AND
IS MORE THAN HAVING MONEY IN THE BANK
