Track Name: Glad You Asked
Glad You Asked

Yes I've had a hell of a day
Maybe you could see
I didn't know that I was wearing
My heart out on my sleeve

Troubles upon troubles
Stacked up high to build a wall
Some days I get over,
Sometimes I lose my grip and fall
And today it all came tumbling down around me

I'm glad you asked, I'm glad you asked
When so many other people just walk past
I'm glad you asked, I'm glad you asked
Like the first warm day of spring time
To remind me that the winter never lasts
I'm glad you asked

We've all had some sorrow
And lived with our own shame
There are no words for some things
There's a hurt that has no name

It's not easy to repair
A soul that's rusted through
But after all that's said and done
There's more to say and do
And you showed me what a friend is when you found me

I'm glad you asked, I'm glad you asked
When so many other people just walk past
I'm glad you asked, I'm glad you asked
Like the first warm day of spring time
To remind me that the winter never lasts
I'm glad you asked
Track Name: Stuck In The Memory
Stuck in the Memory

We said our goodbyes a season ago
Now the leaves are turning to red and gold
Catch a glimpse of my shadow
Where there used to be two
And i'm stuck in the memory of you

I go out for a drive and a bit of fresh air
Turn the radio on and our song is there
Playing soft and low
Like it used to do
And I'm stuck in the memory of you

Cut off all my hair
Got a brand new style
Got a new dress to wear
And i put on a smile
I go out dancing
With my best girlfriends
But where do i turn
When the music ends?

We said our goodbyes and the years have rolled on
I've met other guys but they've come and gone
How I wish my poor arms could hold somebody new
But I'm stuck in the memory of you
Track Name: Little March
Little March

Little March is here and all of the girls
Receive their twirls of thread
They proudly pin them on their shirts
In a sea of white and red

The colours of the changing
Of the season in the bow
Tie the children to tradition of
A thousand springtimes ago

When grandmothers of grandmothers
Were oh so very young
They welcomed back the spring time
And the cycle pushes on

Bring flowers on, bring in the warm
Forget the storm and the night
Little March is here, it will always be
In a sea of red and white

Grandmothers of grandmothers
The springs that you have seen
Ae all threaded to each other
With the trinkets in between

Little March is here and all of the girls
Receive their twirls of thread
They proudly pin them on their shirts
In a sea of white and red
Track Name: Wiggle Room
Wiggle Room

You think you got me all worked out
You think that i cant do without your love
You think you got me wrapped around
Your little finger holds me to the ground

But there's a whole lot of wiggle room between what you think and what I know

You say you got my number right?
Better check your pockets twice, there's nothing there
You want to keep me on a lead
But you don't have the things that I need

Yeah there's a whole lot of wiggle room between what you think and what I know

I never had eyes for any other guys
But still you're jealous through and through
You better be careful with your imagination
Or there's no telling what I might do

You think that I don't know your game
You think I'm just the same as all your girls
There were a few you taught to beg
Just hanging 'round, nipping at your leg

But there's a whole lot of wiggle room between what you think and what I know
Track Name: The Slipper Room
The Slipper Room

I heard they closed down the Slipper Room
That's where I used to watch her dance
Just a shit hole club in the neighbourhood
But it was ours, it was ours
Yeah when the lights went down it was ours

Now the pickle store is selling cigars
The landlords won't leave anything to chance
I can't say that I blame them at all
But it was ours, it was ours
Yeah there was a time when all of this was ours

What can you do when the seasons change?
There's just no point to paint the fading leaves, so let them fall
Beneath the cobblestones

Yesterday I went to try the new cafe
Just to see what all the fuss was for
I couldn't tell you if I wanted to
But she drew a flower
In my drink she drew a pretty little flower

What can you do when the seasons change?
She drew a flower, she drew a flower
In my drink she drew a pretty little flower
Track Name: My Word
My Word

My word, my word, my word

I give you my word
On it you can build your dreams
I give you my word
Sewn back together at the seams
I give you my word
Ain't never gonna be no diamond ring
But honey, my word
Yeah, it's the strongest thing

I wanna tell you in a beautiful, complicated way
To show you how it feels
But the words on their own
Hit straight to the bone

My word, my word, my word

I give you my time
On it you can set the pace
I give you my time
Give you my growing old, my changing face
I give you my time
Which I can never refill
I give you my time
Coz you give me that thrill

I wanna dress it up nice in pretty fairy lights
To show you how it feels
But the words on their own
Hit straight to the bone

My word, my word, my word

i wanna throw a party to celebrate
And daintily decorate the garden
I want a contrabassoon in a hot air balloon
To play out our tune
Which is just my word

My word
Track Name: Forbidden
I'm not supposed to like you but I do
Or maybe it's just trouble that I'm attracted to

I'm not supposed to like you but I do
A voice of reason calls to me but it's not getting through

The voice I hear is the one when you are near
That asks me 'How can I ignore?'
You make a joke of every one that's come before
The forbidden makes you want it more

I'm not supposed to like you but I can't win
Each moment that I spend with you just serves to reel me in

I'm not supposed to like you but I can't quit
When I'm alone I find it hard to think about it

To think that it's true, that I can never be with you
To think of all we could explore
When I'm around you I know what my body's for
The forbidden makes you want it more

It's taking all my self control
Holding myself back from you
Should I keep it to myself? Just what I wanna do
And I'm pretty sure that you want me too
I guess that's the allure of what you're not supposed to do

The voice I hear is the one when you are near
That asks me 'How can I ignore?'
You make a joke of every one that's come before
The forbidden makes you want it more
Track Name: Hurry Back
Hurry Back

All that's left is a guitar pick you used to practice with
And I've been playing till my fingers are sore
I found it in the pocket of your big blue sweater
The one I reach for when it's cold outside
And the memories keep me warm

Don't you try to to tell your friends
That you don't think about me
You try to play it cool
But nobody's fooled

You're gonna hurry back
When you hear my name
You're gonna hurry back
Make it all the same
Say you're a runaway train
Tearing down the track
But you're just blowing steam
You're gonna hurry back

Well I'm gonna put my red dress on, the one you bought for me
The one you said makes me look just like a movie star
I'm listening to an old mix tape of our favourite songs
Now I'm dancing to the rhythm of your footsteps as they bring you home

Don't you try to to tell yourself
That you don't think about me
You try to play it cool
But nobody's fooled

You're gonna hurry back
When you hear my name
You're gonna hurry back
Make it all the same
Say you're a runaway train
Tearing down the track
But you're just blowing steam
You're gonna hurry back

You're gonna hurry back
Yeah it won't be long
You're gonna hurry back
When you hear this song
You say you got all you need
Better check your facts
Coz you don't have me

You're gonna hurry back
When you hear my name
You're gonna hurry back
Make it all the same
Say you're a runaway train
Tearing down the track
But you're just blowing steam
You're gonna hurry back
