Track Name: She's Enough
I’m in love, I’m in love, I’m in love,
She’s enough, she’s enough, she’s enough
Like a splinter of colour in grey
She saw my trouble and tore in away

I’m in love, I’m in love, I’m in love,
She’s enough, she’s enough, she’s enough
Like a moment of silence in noise
She quiets my mind at the sound of her voice

But I don’t think she know anymore
‘Cause in my songs I’m always searching for
A love that I’m not even sure exists
Next to this how could she ever measure up?
I’ve never sang a song as simple as
“I’m in love, I’m in love, I’m in love”

I’m in love, I’m in love, I’m in love,
She’s enough, she’s enough, she’s enough
Like a burn in a lavender balm
She heals my heart when I lie in her arms
I’m in love, I’m in love, I’m in love,
I’m in love, I’m in love, I’m in love
Track Name: Testament to Change
Our decision was our testament to change
The affect of our love crystallised by choosing names
And crazy wonderings of whom she might be
In beauty and character
What would we give to the perfect tiny frame?

And we sat and talked for hours
Letting train after train go past
Now that road we walked is now abandoned
A prisoner of the past

This condition is hard to explain
I haven’t thought of you in ages
Yet I dreamt about her face
And it was warm, like first love and summer days
She had a smile that made me smile
I’ve been smiling all day

And she was a nice idea while it lasted
Though I don’t recall it lasting very long
So she’ll stay in our boxes where we hide our memories
A casualty of moving on

Though the songs I wrote for you are now unravelled
And it’s hard to see the words
There’s a picture in my mind that’s not yet faded
Our little girl

And though we no longer need each other
And I wish you all the joy in the world
There’s someone who stole my heart though we never made her Can’t figure out why I’m thinking about our little girl
Can’t figure out why I’m thinking about our little girl
Track Name: Nottingham
Sometimes she smiles when she reads
She enchants me
And I wish I could be that book that holds her so
Our world is always moving
I’m always waiting
But our journey takes me places she won’t go

I’m a person who switches confidence for fear
At the sight of a risk that might be worth rejection
So I sit in silence
With my headphones at my ears
And I permit the view to be lost to her reflection

And I hope she doesn’t see me staring
I wish that I could stop this staring
But she looks so amazing when the sun bathes in her eyes
And if I had a lack of patience
I could, maybe, spark a conversation
But I forgot my confidence
And she gets off in Nottingham…

One time she smiled straight at me
I was singing
And she could tell I couldn’t tell that she could hear
And if I ever had a chance
To speak to her
It was then, but I just watched it disappear

Now I sing louder
And a little more clear
But it’s no use she never hears in my direction
So I’ll wait for her
To realise I’m here
Until I’ll just get lost in her reflection

And I hope she doesn’t see me staring
I wish that I could stop this staring
But she looks so amazing when the sun bathes in her eyes
And if I had a lack of patience
I could, maybe, spark a conversation
But I forgot my confidence
And she gets off in Nottingham…

The view’s always the same
Running far too fast to frame
So that means I can’t be blamed for my focus
But if she noticed I’d be hard pressed to explain

And I hope she doesn’t see me staring
I wish that I could stop this staring
But she looks so amazing when the sun bathes in her eyes
And if I had a lack of patience
I’d have maybe, sparked a conversation
But I forgot my confidence
And she got off in Nottingham…
Track Name: Single Bed
I’m going shopping for a single bed
My girl she took the one we used to own
I didn’t argue I was too upset
Maybe I’ll get to like sleeping alone

I’m going shopping for a single bed
I just don’t need a double anymore
I’ll still have room enough to stretch my legs
And there’ll be more space for walking on the floor

And I don't know
How I'll sleep tonight
It might be cold
Without her by my side
But I wasn't sure
And once I told her I had doubts about the day
She couldn't stay...

So I'm going shopping for a single bed
I asked my girl to leave me on my own
I hope it's something I don't live to regret
Maybe I'll get to like sleeping alone
Track Name: Almost Something
We might have almost met at the junction
We were almost friends in the park
Then I lined my pockets with pieces of her heart

You might've swore we were each almost single
We didn't know we were playing with fire
And so we towed that line, we were dancing on a wire

We should've parted ways in the market
But I saw her late in a bar
Then we almost kissed in the square under the stars

I remember when the days were warm and long
She was in my room with music on
I warned her that I wouldn't fall in love
She said she wasn't sure that was good enough

Well she loves being caught in the middle
And she loves high speed in the sun
And I almost loved her before we came undone

Well she might have been almost perfect
I almost couldn't believe she was real
‘Cause she made me feel like thought I’d never feel

I remember when the days were warm and long
She was in my room with my music on
I warned her that I wouldn't fall in love
She said she wasn't sure that was good enough

We used to talk it round in circles over wine
Can I alleviate my guilt ‘cause I never lied?
I saw her in Soho the other night

I remember when the days were warm and long
She was in my room with my music on
I warned her that I wouldn't fall in love
She said she wasn't sure that was good enough

I remember when the days gave way to dusk
Lying on the grass we laughed so much
I warned her that I wouldn't fall in love
She said she wasn't sure that was good enough

I remember when the nights were short and hot
And how it felt to hold her in the dark
I warned her that I wouldn't fall in love
She warned me that she wouldn’t wait too long

Well I almost called on her birthday
Then I almost called her on mine
But I swear she said at the end she needed time
