Track Name: City Lights
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
Track Name: If You Ever Change Your Mind
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 ….
Track Name: Lovejunky
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
Track Name: Still Waiting For the Winter
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
Track Name: Alfa Romeo
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
Track Name: Out Of Sight
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?
Track Name: Not Your Night Tonight
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
Track Name: Leaning On The Backline
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 …
Track Name: Something Going On
Intro: Bm, A, Bm, A

Verse: Bm, F#m, A, E, G, D, F#m, Bm, G, F#7
Must be 20 years ago since we last met
And you’re talking like we were the best of friends
I’m not really listening to all your lines
It’s just strange to see those eyes
I used to fantasise, I used to fantasise

Intro: Bm, A, Bm, A

Verse: Bm, F#m, A, E, G, D, F#m, Bm, G, F#7
Never noticed me when we were just nineteen
You were courted by the beautiful and clean
Now I seem to have your curiosity
And I would I like to meet?
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?
Or is there something that you want
Something going on? Something going on?

Intro: Bm, A, Bm, A

Verse: Bm, F#m, A, E, G, D, F#m, Bm, G, F#7
Evidently you have fallen from your peak
And the birds no longer listen when you speak
Seems there’s something that you dying to let on
Maybe I just got you wrong
Well did I get you wrong? I didn’t get you wrong

Chorus: G, D, F#m, Bm , G, D, F#m, Bm, G, F#7
si it my imagination, or is something going on?
Is this just a conversation?
Or is there something that you want
Something going on? Something going on?

Outro: G, A, F#m, Bm
Track Name: I'll See You Later
Riff:: G/A, G/A, G/A, Bm/A, G, A
Verse: A, G, Bm, Em, G, D, A, A
Pre-Chorus: G/A, G/A, G/A, Bm/A, G, A
Chorus: D, G, D, G, Bm, A, Bm, A

Riff

Verse
How I waited so long, I’ll never ever know
I only had to take my things and go
There’s a world there waiting with people who don’t say
That isn’t quite the way that we behave

Pre-Chorus
Out of the darkness, into the light
Out of the darkness, you don’t know what you’re doing
And you don’t own my mind

Chorus
I’m a different person. 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

Riff

Verse
And at home in my room, alone there with my tunes
I made a plan and saw the summer through

And despite an old tune, and what you may assume
You see sometimes that plans do not fall through

Pre-Chorus
Out of the darkness, into the light
Out of the darkness, you don’t know what you’re doing
And you don’t own my mind

Chorus
I’m a different person. 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
