Night falls down On a station town And the truth has been delayed Here I go Following dead stars the wrong way home Space junk sky Life is a series of long goodbyes Chorus Tell me that it's hopeless Say you couldn't care less Don't say that it's over Trying hard to hold on Guessing where I went wrong What do you do for encores? World's apart My foolish heart Won't believe what people say And that's just you Singing a sad song to get you through And that's just me Playing a love song in the wrong key Repeat Chorus

Tell that joke again Think I'll go insane You're so beautiful But you're not in my tree Just like an aeroplane You're up and down again But where you're going to I guess you just couldn't know Say what you mean-everything is nothing without you Should I retreat? When it's all wrapped up in circles for me Chorus Was there ever a way the starts shone without you? Was there ever a day that i could forget you? Just like an aeroplane You're up and down again Too high to feel the pain And you're not in my tree You fall apart in rain You wish the world away Hey I'm so dutiful Can't find the words to explain Say what you mean everything is nothing without you Should I retreat? When it's all wrapped up in circles for me Repeat Chorus You let me know that I'm on a different planet to you You yeah I know Cos you let me know I'm on a different planet Yeah I know-I'm on a different planet to you (Words & Music Simon Parker)

Hey now, there is nowhere left to go but down yeah But I am always looking for the stars A place for broken hearts And you can catch me on a perfect day break Where sunshine burns the sky and makes the world ache I am always searching for a clue Where words will fit the tune Life was, just something else to waste 'til it got too late Now every day's the last i fall apart wake up at the start And wonder if I'm out of time It's midnight and there is nowhere left to go but down yeah You will always be there on my mind Another world to find (Words & Music Simon Parker)

Breathing fire again Emergency reported too late The nights are drawing in For once it's not the boy who's to blame But this is not the time To tell me that you've got to go So I close my eyes and wait The surface of the world slips away Chorus All this talking I heard through paper walls All the times when I wait for you to call But we both know it's time for us to go To sea again Breathing fire and flame Trying to keep up with the game Yeah that joke is wearing thin The one where I just sit here and wait But this is not the end I've come to far to depend On maybe maybe not's Picking up those hints that you drop Repeat Chorus All your plans, they don't improve me at all (Words & Music Simon Parker)

A part of you wants to be be free That part of you is leaving me I never knew just how I'd feel But now I burn for you when I dream Chorus Ooooh, always on fire Ooooh, always desire You're moving on you shine like a star I've always been so mild at heart You were the flame to light up my life But now i burn come rain or shine Repeat Chorus Tear away my self defence I don't believe in co-incidence But I feel like I am burning when I'm with you, when I'm with you I never knew just what to say Now this Fireboy, is bringing away I never knew... (Words & Music Simon Parker)

If you're talking to yourself Wish that you were someone else That's how i feel today If your lucks out with the tide And you've got no place to hide Don't throw away the silver key If you're talking to yourself... (Words & Music Simon Parker)

Wake with the sun in my eyes Late once again, no surprise You say i disappear until the coast is clear On an island Ran from the race rest assured Made my escape washed ashore So I disappeared until the coast was clear I'm an island Chorus I used to think that the world was listening to me And as it span it revolved around me, and my dreams But now I'm not so sure Wake with the sun in my eyes Planned my escape my demise And it's just like solitaire cos no one else is there On an island Repeat Chorus You can't remain an island You cannot face the future on your own...on your own You're on your own (Words & Music Simon Parker)

I used to think that when you smiled I got high, but I cried and cried Cos you could never save my life i used to think that banana skins could get me high So I tried and tried But they would never change my life No they could never change my life I used to think I was being tailed When i got high i wondered why Shadows used to rule my life But now i find I don't think so much I'm out of touch with all that stuff Knowing I could never win I'm giving up and giving in I used to think that when you smiled I got high But i cried and cried cos you could never save my life And now i find i don't think so much I'm out of touch with all that stuff Knowing i could never win i'm slipping on banana skins (Words & Music Simon Parker)
9.
There's a part of me that always wants to talk on the phone But there's a side to me that really wants to be left alone Lost in a maze fade away... There's a memory of summer's hiding out with my friends But now there's mystery cos no one told us friendships could end All through this lifetime Year after year Lost in a maze fade away Chorus When you're King of the sun You share the world with no one And if I try will I make it next time? Can I be King of the sun? Repeat Chorus (Words & Music Simon Parker)
10.
It's true what they say Time will slip away And you cant bring it back It's always there in your mind Chorus You can go where you want But you can never go back And old hopes they don't die They just end up living on their own You live the next thing Hold on to your dream 'Til one day it's all gone Wake up it;s time for you to move You can go where you want But you can never go back And old Punks they don't die They just end up dancing on their own You can go where you want... (Words & Music Simon Parker)
