Henry 03:52
Aching to be in the room 'cos no one can tell me just what to do And everything’s going my way a little too much these days I just don’t know what to do I just don’t know what to do I just can’t think enough of you I can’t think enough of you Aching to feel Satan's breath over my shoulder Saying, “Your demise will be so sweet for the delicate minds that you’ve disrupted like beehives" I just don’t know what to do I just don’t know what to do I just can’t think enough of you I can’t think enough of you I can’t think enough of you Henry I, I don’t know what to do Let us take a walk and talk about the songs that we’ll write for one another And drink mochas with marsh mellows and make snow people in New Zealand Should I overcome this? Have I over sung this? Could this be my big break? Oh who knows for heavens sake? Aching over because lovers say that everything’s ok, when it’s not But are you different do you love me or will you hate me when, when I’m gone? X 2 I just can’t think enough of you I can’t think enough of you I can’t think enough of you Henry I , I just don’t know what to do Let us take a walk and talk about the songs that we’ll write for one another And make mochas with marsh mellows and make snow people in New Zealand

The Wind 04:09
Overcoming the wind Overcoming my useless trends You say ‘everything will be ok’ It is… Picture perfect you are Pose with me on a dark but starry night And everything will be just fine as it is CHORUS: I gave it I gave it I gave it my all I gave it I gave it I gave it my all Overcoming the wind To be transformed by renewing of my mind And everything will be just fine as it is CHORUS: I gave it I gave it I gave it my all I gave it I gave it I gave it my all And will this heart of mine Open up and it will be just fine The day will come The day will come, come, come CHORUS: I gave it I gave it I gave it my all I gave it I gave it I gave it my all

Over-drive 03:19
I see life on the other side Even though politics just confuse me Am I just so naïve? I think it might be over-drive Out of my depression so now I’m preaching hope On to the sailors on a sinking boat And I hope this does not offend you I hope this does not offend you… I think that for once there’s not a Firestorm oh am I missing the point? Should I become more aware? I am feeling bad because I’m So so happy at this time But I wish I was one of those ‘worldly girls’ I know that he loves And I hope this does not offend you I hope this does not offend you… Could it be always, that I’m just overcome? Could it be always that I’m just overcome? Or could it…could it be gold that he wants, gold that he wants? Could it …could it be gold that he wants, gold that he wants? I see life on the other side Even though politics just confuse me Am I just so naïve? But why compare myself to those Who aren’t me. True self-esteem Is appreciating who we are And not who we could be And I hope this does not offend you I hope this does not offend you…

Take a good step back so you can hear the words From the rugged readings of your psychic bird Who sings a tune I know too well, how swell So she sings you every Friday And you’ve got yourself thinking that you’ll be ok To clean yourself and to wash away Any chance of trying to explain Any chance of trying to explain I’m packing up and trying again Have you erased your thoughts and cancelled out the fact that you’re human with thoughts that aren’t always in tact The songs that you sing, they blow me away But why do I always seem to hear you say Why do I always seem to hear you say Only excuses to run away from me, from me? From little little, so below you, so fucking small, do you do you… Now I'm taking it easy again And I'm taking the road And as we speak I'm waiting for messages From other boys I don't know (repeat verse) Bvocals: I remember hanging out the washing And you said I was a sheltered girl But you're sheltered far beyond the ceiling Even far beyond an oyster pearl And now I'm taking it easy again Now I'm taking it easy again etc.
