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

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

Little March 03:30
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

Wiggle Room 04:16
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

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

My Word 03:23
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

Forbidden 03:19
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

Hurry Back 03:10
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
