Track Name: London '66
WINTER ‘66 A COLD LONDON STREET
DISTURBED FROM ITS DREAM
BY THE SOUND OF A WOMAN’S SCREAM

SCARED I’D BLEED AWAY
ONLY THE CRUELLEST HEART COULD SAY
YOU’VE GOT NO CAUSE TO COMPLAIN
YOU’VE GOT THREE CHILDREN ALREADY … ANYWAY

WHAT IF SHE HADN’T BEEN BRAVE
HADN’T HAD THE STRENGTH TO SAVE
ME WHERE WOULD I BE
JUST A GHOST OR A MEMORY

REMEMBERED EACH DAY
AS THE SUNLIGHT MAKES IT’S WAY
INTO COLD SLEEPLESS NIGHT
JUST SAY IT’LL BE ALRIGHT
IT’S ALRIGHT

AND WHAT IF WE’D STAYED
WHAT PART WOULD I HAVE PLAYED
WHERE WOULD I BE
WOULD THERE BE YOU AND ME … YOU AND ME
Track Name: The House of (Having) Fun
WELL C’MON EVERYBODY WE GOT SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE
RICH OR POOR OLD OR YOUNG THIS IS THE HOUSE OF HAVING FUN
WE GOT NO INHIBITIONS AND TO HELL WITH TRADITION
WE’RE MAKING IT UP AS WE GO ALONG SO COME ON EVERYBODY

WE GOT A NEW WAY OF THINKING WE CAN GIVE YOU EVERYTHING
NOWHERE TO HIDE NOWHERE TO RUN
THIS IS THE HOUSE OF HAVING FUN

HAVEN’T I BEEN LUCKY I’VE BEEN ALLOWED TO SING
MY SONGS CAN SHOCK MY WORDS CAN STING BUT SOMETIMES THEY DON’T SAY ANYTHING
AND I FEEL LIKE A MYSTICAL MAN SELLING DREAMS FROM THE BACK OF A VAN
I’LL SAY IT AGAIN BECAUSE I CAN WELL COME ON EVERYBODY

NOTHING AND NO-ONE’S GONNA STAND IN OUR WAY
COS UNLIKE THE YOUNG GENERATION WE GOT NOTHING TO SAY

WE GOT A NEW WAY OF THINKING WE CAN GIVE YOU EVERYTHING
NOWHERE TO HIDE NOWHERE TO RUN THIS IS THE HOUSE OF HAVING……
Track Name: Summer Rain
SUMMER RAIN IS FALLING AGAIN
LIKE THE DAY WE FIRST MET
EVERY DROP BRINGS BACK A MEMORY
I LET MYSELF GET SOAKING WET

NIGHT AFTER NIGHT THESE FEELINGS FILL MY HEAD
DON’T KNOW WHY I DON’T KNOW HOW
I GET LOST IN THE THINGS I NEVER SAID
I SHOULD BE USE TO THIS BY NOW ... I GUESS

WE SPENT THAT LAST SUMMER IN EACH OTHERS ARMS
OR LYING ON OUR BACKS STARING AT THE STARS
NO PLANS FOR THE FUTURE JUST FALLING AND LAUGHING
IF I COULD GO BACK IN TIME I WOULDN’T CHANGE A THING

NIGHT AFTER NIGHT THESE FEELINGS FILL MY HEAD
DON’T KNOW WHY I DON’T KNOW HOW
I GET LOST IN THE THINGS I NEVER SAID
I SHOULD BE USE TO THIS BY NOW

AUTUMN LEAVES FALL FROM THE TREES
SETTLING AROUND MY FEET
SWEET MEMORIES
SWEET HARMONY

NIGHT AFTER NIGHT THESE FEELINGS FILL MY HEAD
DON’T KNOW WHY I DON’T KNOW HOW
I GET LOST IN THE THINGS I NEVER SAID
I SHOULD BE USE TO THIS BY NOW

LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA
Track Name: The Story of Me
WHEN I WAS 10 YEARS OLD I TRULY BELIEVED
THE WORLD WAS A BOOK AND I WAS EAGER TO READ
I COLOURED EACH PAGE IN A DIFFERENT SHADE
AND NO-ONE COMPLAINED ABOUT THE MESS THAT I MADE

WHEN I WAS 20 YEARS OLD I STILL HAD MY DREAMS
AND FAMILY AND FRIENDS WHO SUPPORTED ME
I WAS STRONG I WAS BRIGHT AND IF I KNEW I WAS RIGHT
I WAS WILLING TO FIGHT FOR THE THINGS I BELIEVED

IT’S A SHORT HISTORY IT’S THE STORY OF ME
IT'S A SHORT HISTORY IT’S THE SAD STORY OF ME

WHEN I WAS 30 YEARS OLD I WAS AT MY PEAK
THOUGH SOME OF MY FRIENDS WERE CRUSHED AT MY FEET
I HAD A BEAUTIFUL GIRL AND A WIFE AS WELL
A FORTUNE TO MAKE AND A STORY TO SELL

IT’S A SHORT HISTORY IT’S THE STORY OF ME
IT'S A SHORT HISTORY IT'S THE SAD STORY OF ME

WHEN I WAS 40 YEARS OLD I’D LOST THE LOT
AND LIKE YOU ALL SAID I DESERVED ALL I GOT
MY WIFE GOT WISE AND THE GIRL MOVED ON
LEAVING ME JUST AN IDEA FOR A SONG

NOW I’M 50 YEARS OLD I CAN HARDLY BREATHE
FOR THE WEIGHT OF THE GUILT AND THE SHAME THAT SURROUNDS ME
MOVE ON WILL YOU PLEASE THERE’S NOTHING TO SEE
JUST A SAD OLD SOUL SINGING THE SAME OLD SONG
THE SAD STORY OF ME
Track Name: Model Village
HE SPENT TWO YEARS PUTTING THE PIECES
OF HIS MODEL VILLAGE TOGETHER
HIS KIDS MOVED ON AND HIS WIFE WALKED OUT
CLAIMING THAT HE DIDN’T RESPECT HER

HE BUILT A SCHOOL AND A CHURCH AND A LIBRARY
A BRIDGE HELD UP BY SUSPENSION
BUT HE LOOKED AT ME LIKE I WAS NAIVE
WHEN I ASKED AFTER CLOSER INSPECTION

WHAT YOU GONNA DO WHEN THE RAIN COMES
WHAT YOU GONNA DO IF IT POURS
WHAT YOU GONNA DO WHEN THE WIND BLOWS
PICK UP THE PIECES AND START ALL OVER AGAIN

HE PUT LIGHTS IN EVERY BUILDING
AND IT STARTED TO COME TO LIFE
WHEN HE APPLIED THE FINISHING TOUCHES
TO THE PARADE AND THE BUTCHERS WIFE

SO HE APPLIED FOR AN EXTENSION
READ THE PLANS HIMSELF AND APPROVED
BUT WHEN I ASKED HIM FOR A SECOND TIME
HE CLEARLY HADN’T A CLUE

WHAT YOU GONNA DO WHEN THE RAIN COMES
WHAT YOU GONNA DO IF IT POURS
WHAT YOU GONNA DO WHEN THE WIND BLOWS
PICK UP THE PIECES AND START ALL OVER AGAIN
ALL OVER AGAIN … ALLOVER AGAIN

AND THE RAIN CAME AND IT STARTED TO POUR
AND THE WIND HOWLED LIKE NEVER BEFORE
AND IT SWIRLED AND STARTED TO ROAR
AND IT RAZED HIS TINY TOWN TO THE FLOOR

WHAT YOU GONNA DO WHEN THE RAIN COMES
DOWN DOWN DOWN
WHAT YOU GONNA DO IF IT POURS
DOWN DOWN DOWN
WHAT YOU GONNA DO WHEN THE WIND HOWLS
NOW NOW NOW
PICK UP THE PIECES AND START ALL OVER
Track Name: Something About Jane
SAME OLD BORING SUNDAY MORNING
HE STARES OUT AT THE RAIN
SINCE HER HOLIDAY WITH FRIENDS
THERE’S SOMETHING ABOUT JANE
SHE DON’T SMILE WHEN SHE SEES HIM
AND SHE’S CRYING AGAIN
IT’S SO LONG SINCE SHE CALLED HIM BY HIS NAME

IT’S A SHAME, IT’S A SHAME HE DON'T THINK THAT HE'S TO BLAME
BUT THERE'S SOMETHING HE CAN'T EXPLAIN
IT'S A SHAME, IT'S A SHAME CAN HE REALLY BE TO BLAME
BUT THERE'S SOMETHING, SOMETHING ABOUT JANE

NOW SHE’S WORKING LATE AS USUAL
AND SHE GOES STRAIGHT TO HER ROOM
LAUGHING ON THE TELEPHONE
HE DON’T KNOW WHO SHE’S TALKING TO
BUT SHE GOES OUT WITHOUT HIM
TELLS HIM NOT TO WAIT UP
HE SPENDS ALL NIGHT JUST LISTENING FOR THE KEY IN THE LOCK

IT’S A SHAME, IT’S A SHAME HE DON'T THINK THAT HE'S TO BLAME
BUT THERE'S SOMETHING HE CAN'T EXPLAIN
IT'S A SHAME, IT'S A SHAME CAN HE REALLY BE TO BLAME
BUT THERE'S SOMETHING, SOMETHING ABOUT JANE

SHE NEVER FELT MORE ALONE
THAN WHEN SHE’S SITTING ROUND AT HOME
SHE'S GOT SOMETHING TO SAY
SHE’S GONNA HAVE TO GIVE IT TO HIM STRAIGHT

SHE SAYS MY LIFE’S SO FUCKING BORING
I CAN’T BEAR TO THINK
ANOTHER 30 YEARS OR MORE
STANDING AT THIS SINK
I NEED SOMETHING EXCITING
I NEEDED SOMETHING NEW
I NEEDED SOMEONE WHO'S GONNA DO
THE THINGS YOU NEVER DO

IT’S A SHAME, IT’S A SHAME HE DON'T THINK THAT HE'S TO BLAME
BUT THERE'S SOMETHING HE CAN'T EXPLAIN
IT'S A SHAME, IT'S A SHAME CAN HE REALLY BE TO BLAME
BUT THERE'S SOMETHING, SOMETHING ABOUT JANE
Track Name: John Candy Talking
FALLING ON MY HEAD AGAIN
DIDN’T KNOCK NO SENSE INTO ME
SWALLOWING MY TEETH AGAIN
I DIDN’T SEE THE PUNCHES COMING
I’M CURLED INTO A BALL
WAITING FOR THE BLOWS TO FALL

WALKING DOWN THAT STREET AGAIN
LOST SIGHT OF WHERE I’M GOING
WHEN I FIND AN OPEN DOOR
DIDN’T FIND NOTHING WORTH KNOWING
WHAT AM I TO DO?
I’M GOING ROUND IN CIRCLES WITHOUT YOU

WHAT AM I TO DO?
I’M GOING ROUND IN CIRCLES WITHOUT YOU

I CAN’T HELP THE WAY I’M FEELING
THE MODERN WORLD IS NOT FORGIVING
DON’T BELIEVE A WORD THEY’RE SAYING
THEY CALL IT LIFE BUT IT’S NOT LIVING
HEY WHITE BOY WHAT YOU DOING UPTOWN
PARDON ME SIR
I’M JUST LOOKING FOR ANOTHER WAY OF FALLING DOWN
I'M FALLING DOWN
I’M FALLING DOWN
Track Name: I Got On a Train
I GOT ON A TRAIN I NEEDED TO GET AWAY FOR A WHILE
JUST FOR A SHORT WHILE

I GOT ON A TRAIN DON’T KNOW WHERE IT’S HEADING
ANYWHERE IS FINE

NO DESTINATION IN MIND
WHEN I REACH THE STATION
I GOT NOWHERE TO RUN BUT I’VE A TICKET TO RIDE

I GOT ON A TRAIN DON’T KNOW WHERE I’M GOING
MAYBE I’LL KNOW WHEN I ARRIVE

I GOT ON A TRAIN LEAVING THIS CITY
BUT LEAVING NOTHING BEHIND

NO DESTINATION IN MIND
WHEN I REACH THE STATION
I GOT NOWHERE TO RUN BUT I’VE A TICKET TO RIDE

I GOT ON A TRAIN DON’T KNOW WHERE I’M GOING
ANYWHERE IS FINE


NO DESTINATION IN MIND
WHEN I LEAVE THE STATION
I GOT NOWHERE TO RUN BUT I’VE A TICKET TO RIDE

I GOT ON A TRAIN DON’T KNOW WHERE I’M GOING
ANYWHERE IS FINE
