City Lights 04:11
Verse: E, A, C#m, B Chorus: A, B, G#m, C#m City lights, why you shine so bright? Don’t you know it’s time we were leaving Long ago, still I can’t control No I can’t let go of that feeling Say it’s over and I walk away I will understand your reasons Say it’s over and I’ll walk away Never hear from me again City lights, fading far behind As I slip inside evening’s dreaming Please don’t say, time will make it fade Cos I cannot break from that feeling Say it’s over and I walk away I will understand your reasons Say it’s over and I walk away Never hear from me again

Verse: C, Am, Dm, G Middle: Am, G, F Chorus: C, Am, Dm, G If you ever change your mind, if you ever change your mind Stepped out off the evening train, turned his collar to the rain Checked the pockets in his coat, Stopped and finished off his smoke Sold her ticket to a tout, but he cannot shut her out Now he’s dancing in the crowd and his lungs begin to shout Oh leave me alone, I don’t want to know Just leave me alone, I don’t want to know If you ever change your mind, if you ever wake to find That you’re longing for my touch and he wasn’t all that much Just ignore the things I said, how it’s probably for the best Well we know it’s just a lie, if ever want to try … again And he heard she was in town so he guessed he’d see her around Now they’re talking at the bar and her hand goes on his arm And he’s looks at me instead, so I smile and shake my head Now she’s talking on her phone, so I guess they’re going home Oh leave me alone, I don’t want to know Just leave me alone, I don’t want to know If you ever change your mind, if you ever wake to find That you’re longing for my touch and she wasn’t all that much Just ignore the things I said, how it’s probably for the best Well we know it’s just a lie, if ever want to try … again If you ever change your mind …. If you ever change our mind ….

Lovejunky 03:36
Tell me everything Of course I wanna know Is my jealousy so plain Never lovers cos I couldn’t take the pace Of the chaos that you crave Lovejunky are you going out tonight Lovejunky cos I need you by my side You’re waiting for the pleasure and the pain Lovejunky is it happening again? Take me anywhere I don’t care anymore For tonight I have no shame We are history and I’ve heard it all before But I’ll take it anyway Oh do you feel it like I do I though I was immune I guess we always knew Lovejunky, are you going out tonight Are you going out tonight Cause I need you by my side

Verse: G, C, G, C, Em, D, G Chorus: C, D, Em, Bm, C, D, G Friday night outside the Grand , a wedding disco band play boogie wonderland In the darkness by the sea, the guys are smokin’ weed, huddled from the breeze If you’re still waiting for the winter, then you already missed her And she’s not coming back again Yeah I heard that she’s Ok, still a world away Were you hoping for the rain? Left my shirt down on the beach, torn into pieces Thrown into the sea Wore your jacket to the club, I guess you’d call it love I guess you’d call it love If you’re still waiting for the winter, then you already missed her And she’s never coming back again Yeah I heard that she’s Ok, still a world away Were you hoping for the rain? After hours outside the zap, no money for a cab No money for a cab Could you please now move along, I wish I was that strong I wish I was that strong If you’re still waiting for the winter, then you already missed her And she’s never coming back again Yeah I heard that she’s Ok, still a world away Were you hoping for the rain? I felt the coming of the winter, my heart began to shiver Cos we’re never coming back again We’re already on our way, half a world away never coming back again

Alfa Romeo 04:10
Verse: G, Bm7, C9, D Chorus: Bm7, Cmaj7, D, C, Bm7, Cmaj7, D, D Middle 8: Am, Em, D, C, Am, Em, D, D You arrived on the scene, like some Hollywood dream, But a year with band, and you don’t look so sweet They loved you in Paris yeah, they bust you in Rome By the time you get out, you can never go home Oh you, unimaginably cool, on the boulevards In your Alfa Romeo Oh you indefensible and cruel, and the jealousy Unimaginably cool If they left you alone, then they wouldn’t get harmed But they can’t keep away, for that innocent charm She begged you to stay clean, yeah, you tried to be strong But the days the road, are so hungry and long You were invariably stoned, by the early show Did you think they never knew? But you gave your body and your soul, every time you played So I guess they let it go Do the lines on you face betray your disgrace? 30 years on the scene, is way over the mean I heard you in Tokyo, the very last time Never sounded so sad, never sounded so fine Oh you, unimaginably cool, on the boulevards In your Alfa Romeo Oh you indefensible and cruel, but they forgave you Unimaginably cool

Out Of Sight 04:03
Got your messages Friday night, made my way down to the coast So we go dancing Saturday night, Sunday live on tea and toast But when you’re out of sight am I out of mind? All the letters that I write every lonely Wednesday night When you’re out of sight am I out of mind? All the lines I never send, cos we don’t want to pretend? Small town Saturdays at the old arcade In a look your fate is made I’ve got my life and (baby) you’ve got yours Love’s not everything of course But when you’re out of sight am I out of mind? All the letters that I write every lonely Wednesday night When I’m out of sight am I out of mind? All the lines I never send, can we make it in the end?

Verse: Cmaj7, Fmaj7, Cmaj7, Fmaj7, Dm, G, Dm, F Chorus: C, Em, F, C, Em, F, Dm, G, Dm, F We’ve been hanging out now for quite a while I s’pose I guess that you’ve been thinking we’re getting kinda close Patiently you’re waiting and loading up your lines Maybe you should keep them for someone else this time Cos there’s no us And I can’t give you what you want I’m not the one you’re thinking of It’s not your night tonight It’s only lust Doing the things it always does But that will never be enough It’s not your night tonight Sorry if I’m not the girl that you though I was Sorry if I made you look, just a little lost You were only joking yeah, course I know it’s true Sorry if I took it wrong, I was joking too

Verse: A, D Chorus: D, C#m, Bm, A, D, C#m, Bm, E Middle 8: F#m, Bm, E, A, F#m, Bm, D, E You made your own mistakes, You must have made a million, And if you had your time you’d make them all again And though you’re not like me I felt a strange connection But now it’s all too late, too late to say … I wish I could be back with you in the eighties Before you never made it Before you packed your dreams away You found the world did not revolve around you Reality had found you And took you to a different place Suffice to say I lived a life of moderation Suffice to say I broke some hearts upon the way And sometimes in my mind, you’re leaning the backline My guitar in your hand, behind the band I wish I could be back with you in the eighties Before you never made it Before you packed your dreams away We found the world did not revolve around us And love got up and found us And took us on our separate ways Alone with my heartbeat, here in my bead Memory wanders and I miss my friend, oh I miss my friend …

And should I be discreet, should I be discreet? Chorus: G, D, F#m, Bm , G, D, F#m, Bm, G, F#7 Is it my imagination, or is something going on? Is this just a conversation?

I’m not girl you passed, And looked right through me, because you’re different class Now you want to know me, say I’ve got so much to give I’ll see you later, I’ve got my life to live
