Track Name: Out Of Focus (single edit)
If you’ve got something to say
You may as well say it now
Don’t keep me hanging on
It’s OK
I promise that I won’t cry this time
That I’ll be strong

I’m afraid of confrontation
But I don’t let that stop me kicking off

When I was young
My tongue was superglued
Inside my aching head
Now I’ve become the man
Who just can’t keep his thoughts to himself instead

I got tired of hibernation
So I took paper scissors to my hair because…

There’s still life on Earth
There’s still light in the morning
The mornings don’t get easier but…
There’s still hearts to break
Mine, it breaks up without warning

If I could paint at all
I’d render the view from here
On my bedroom wall
Then cut the phone
Kill the internet
Brick up the windows and lock the doors

But I… I’m not that kind of artist
Thank God that I lack discipline and diagnosis and…

There’s still life on Earth
There’s still light in the morning
The mornings don’t get easier but…
There’s still hearts to break
Mine, it breaks up without warning

Now I’m moving on
The world spins into focus
You know this could be easier but…
For just one tiny little fraction of an instant
It feels like…

I’m coming home
Track Name: Budget Flight To Faro
All I wanted to say
While we’re strapped in together
This could be the best holiday
The world has ever known
All I wanted to say
While we’re strapped in together
This could be the best holiday
Ever known

We’re the palest of the pale
Out to get some sun
You’re the greenest of the green
Out to get some fun
We were lost in the olive groves
Several years ago
And I swam in the sea
You claimed to look the other way

All I wanted to say...
All I wanted to say...
This could be the best holiday
The world has ever known

We’ll be closer to ourselves
On the golden sand
We’ll forget our office jobs
I’ll forget my band
I remember a time and place
Before the mobiles arrived
We were crammed in a phonebox
You didn’t have the money in your pocket
You turned to me, oh...

Where there’s smoke there’s fire
I’m sweating, burning up now
Where there’s smoke there’s fire
You look like you’re in another time zone
Where there’s smoke there’s always, always fire

All I wanted to say
As we plunge down together
This could have been the best holiday
The world has ever known
All I wanted to say
As we crash down together
This could have been the best holiday
The world has ever known

This could have been the best holiday...
