Track Name: Who is Archie Lane?
I don't like you
I don't like you
I never did
Never kept it hid

It's a case of friction
A real contradiction
A deeper shade of blue
Confession of the truth

Archie Lane
I came here to explain
Leaving on a jet plane
Never coming back, here

You'll get through
With everyone around repulsed by you
Archie Lane
You're a loser

Who cares what they're saying?
Just as long their paying
A permanently plastered
Greedy bastard

And it's more, more, more
Money in the drawer
You only care about names
Faces in picture frames

Archie Lane
I came here to explain
You'll always be the same
A loser

You'll get through
With everyone around repulsed by you
Archie Lane
You're a loser

I know it means nothing to you
But if it's a choice between you and her,
Then I choose..
Not you!
Track Name: Waiting For Your Love
We struggle on, when all hope in reality's gone,
we got it wrong - when we said, that we'd moved on,
I can't get away, from the feeling of failure day after day,
there must be some way - to prevail, but until that day..

We'll remain friends, i'll just pretend i'm not waiting for your love,
It's just like before, i'm left wanting more and i'm waiting for your love,
waiting for your love..
you're love never comes

I just need one win, in this town of losers that i'm in,
I've grown a thick skin, register rings, no-one hears when I sing

But we'll remain friends, i'll just pretend i'm not waiting for your love
It's just like before, i'm left wanting more and i'm waiting for your love

I'm just trying to get through,
Do what I want to,
And hold on to you..

I'll wait for your love,
I'm leaving this job,
I wait for your love..
Track Name: Never Enough
You say I should write you
Something beautiful
But you're never patient
Just keep reminding me how long you've waited

But you say I have a cutting knack
To point out when you're wrong
Well what a dangerous tool
with which to write you a song

You say give me a call
but when I do you give me shit that it's never in person
You say give me a week but you mean a year
and I can hear that you're getting worse

You say all you want a simple things
Just my time and love
But those are seldom simple
And they're never enough

But you don't want a song, you want a compliment
And you don't want the truth, you want the sentiment
Well I can give you, I can give you all that stuff
But it wont matter, no it wont matter cause it's
Never Enough

You should stick to the mirror that you've got
Cause if you borrow mine you'll find you don't
look like you thought you did
and someday I'll regret not buying into
what we are born and bred to believe we should give in to

But you don't want a song, you want a compliment
And you don't want the truth, you want the sentiment
Well I can give you, I can give you all that stuff
But it wont matter, no it wont matter cause it's
Never Enough
Never Enough
Track Name: Astoria
Why the awkward moments?
Why the prolonged pause?
It seems you failed to notice me..
but I know you did of course

You're not a friend to me anyway
And you never really were
They say that home is where the heart is
Well my heart's with her..
In Astoria

So you've become a man now
The future's in your hands
But with friends so disposable
It must be hard to make plans

You're not a friend to me anyway
And you never really were
They say that the home is where the heart is
My heart's with her..
In Astoria

For a while it seemed a shame
We went our own way
But now that we've grown up
You're just not good enough for me

Fade into the distance
So does your memory
I'm gonna leave it in our hometown
With the death of you and me

You're not a friend to me anyway
And you never really were
They say that home is where the heart is
My heart's with her
My heart's with her
My heart's with her
In Astoria
Track Name: Hoping That I Mean It
I was never wanting
To change my mind
Say your name in a line

I was never feeling
That you weren't the one
until the time had come

You are full of love for me
I'm not really what you need..
I'm saying that I love you
Hoping that I mean it

All is well that ends well
But it never does
Wishing one day you'll see
That time heals the pain
And you'll feel love again

You are full of love for me
I'm not really what you need..
I'm saying that I love you
Hoping that I mean it
The end I see it

You are full of love for me
I'm not what you need
Track Name: Emma Simpson
Emma Simpson
You're not doing well, I know
You've worked here too long
Your life will finally start, when you go

But you think it's over before it's done
Before the game is played, someone else won
Emma Simpson, get a move on

You know your role well
And nobody else knows it good enough
Took a wrong turn
And kept driving on and on and on

Can't even see another way
Can't see sunlight in your day
Emma Simpson, get a move on

Step out into the light
Only then can you live your life
Get away from that man..
Emma Simpson
Track Name: Changes Round Here
At first I release with the right hand
My knuckles have gotten so white
And I tell every stranger that I can
That I'm fixin' to make changes round here

It takes me all night, but I pack in my head
from the long summer dresses to books I've not read
It's taken me years just to fill this space up
to find I prefer to empty it instead

She said, What are you holding on to?
You're mourning a loss that you haven't been through
it's not so tough deciding who
are the trivial many, and the vital few

I gotta defend this righteous gut
It's full of good sense, full of caution but
you've got to invent some adventure somewhere
so I'm fixin' to make changes fixin' to make changes round here

She said, What are you holding on to?
You're mourning a loss that you haven't been through
It's not so tough deciding who
are the trivial many and the vital few...
Track Name: Mystie (Don't Say No!)
Your mysterious eyes, may be around tonight
But you won't be there in the morning
And when I feel this way, it's like my birthday
Without all the fear of getting older

Something tells me i'm not alone
In wanting to take you home
But Mystie, give me just one look

No-one knew you were there, then everyone stared
When your voice came from the piano
So give the singer a hand, and fire him from the band
He ain't going nowhere anyway

It happens to me almost every night, in this town
Fall in love with a stranger at first sight, but it feels alright

Well living on a song, can only last so long
Trust me Mystie, I know
When we get to this, the final kiss
I'm just so scared you'll say no

Don't say no!
Track Name: No Good
I don't know where you've been
It was pretty late when you came in
And I don't know who you've been with
But I know that she 'aint me...

And I never thought you would
but now I know you're up to no good, baby
Said, I never thought you would
But now I know you're up to no good

And you been telling me some lies
You been telling me some wicked lies
How can you look into my eyes
And make it up so sweet?

Well I never though you would
But now I know you're up to no good, Baby
Said I never thought you would
But now I know you're up to no good

You played me like I was deaf, dumb, and blind
You played me like you never had the time
But you've been getting messy with that rhyme
And I never thought you would but now I know you're up to no good
Woulda, coulda, shoulda- she can have you cause you're no good

I don't know where you've been
I don't know how I let you get me into this
All I know is I feel lighter now it's just me
And I never thought you would
But now I know you're up to no good
Said I never thought you would
But now I know that you're just no good
Track Name: Take Me Home
How do I find a decent beer around here?
How do I find a smile that's real and sincere?

The lonely road, it's just like you told me it would be
I should've known, i'd feel so alone in this city
So take me home

They drive along, in straight lines in the sunshine
These haves and have nots, remind me i'm on the wrong side

Why've you got to be so fake?
Why do they say it's so great..?

Here on the lonely road, it's just like you told me it would be
And I should've known, i'd feel so alone in this city
So take me home

From this lonely road..
Track Name: Where Losers Meet
Standing on the side of the room you'll find her
Because she knows the world don't revolve around her
She start a fire with the slightest spark
She could find love in the coldest heart

Outside everything's in it's right place
The sky above has cleared and the sun's on our face
Where losers meet

A door hits the wall another mindless victim
Another step away from the skin that he's in
It doesn't matter what you say or do
Only what they can get from you

Some are here trying to turn it all around
Some are here trying to lose what they found
Some have left home and they can't go back
Some enjoy being stuck in the trap..

Where losers meet
