wires


you got wires, going in
you got wires, coming out of your skin
you got tears, making tracks
i got tears, that are scared of the facts

running down corridors
through automatic doors
got to get to you, got to see this through
i see hope is here, in a plastic box
i've seen christmas lights, reflect in your eyes

you got wires, going in
you got wires, coming out of your skin
there's dry blood, on your wrist
your dry blood, on my fingertip

running down corridors
through automatic doors
got to get to you, got to see this through
first night of your life, curled up on your own
looking at you now, you would never know

i see it in your eyes
i see it in your eyes
you'll be alright

i see it in your eyes
i see it in your eyes
you'll be alright
alright

running ...
down corridors, through, automatic doors
got to get to you, got to see this through
i see hope is here, in a plastic box
i've seen christmas lights, reflect in your eyes

down corridors, through automatic doors
got to get to you, got to see this through
first night of your life, curled up on your own
looking at you now, you would never know

vehicles & animals

it's the simple things like the robots stevie g draws
and the ease with which we seem to pull those tricks
there are moments of escape for every one of us
and the beauty in the times that we create
i saw you smiling
and i need my vehicles and animals
and i will be alright
take me back to nineteen seventy nine so i can find my open eyes
he can play all by himself for many hours
i have never seen a kid who's so content
there is nothing from the outside that can touch him
cos he's just learning how to be alone with one
i saw you smiling
and i need my vehicles and animals
and i will be alright
take me back to nineteen seventy nine so i can find my open eyes
and i need my vehicles and animals
and i will be alright
take me back to nineteen seventy nine so i can find my open eyes

lying down on my bed
i just got another kick to the head
oh yeah you're a part of me
yet another branch on the family tree
salt on my fingers salt in my cuts
salt on my face and salt in my guts
it's been a battle but we've come through ok
stop what you're doing and play

cos we've got our vehicles and animals so
we're gonna be alright
there's no need for us to go back in time
because we've found our open eyes

we've got our vehicles and animals
so we're gonna be alright
there's no need for us to go back in time
because we've found our open eyes

you got the style

oh no
gone and put my foot in it again
think back i can't believe that it was me who said that
last time
i promised i'd bite my tongue until i counted to ten
i said oh it's getting hot in here
must be something in the atmosphere
oh oh-oh oh oh

oh it's getting hot in here
there must be something in the atmosphere
oh i could be laughing about it
and making the most of the true british climate
oh it's getting hot in here
there must be something in the atmosphere
oh oh-oh oh oh

i've seen
the tension on the high street growing lately
it seems that you have to be careful who you look at
sometimes
i can't see things the way you see them
but this is our home

i said
oh it's getting hot in here
there must be something in the atmosphere
oh i could be laughing about it
and making the most of the true british climate
oh it's getting hot in here
there must be something in the atmosphere
oh oh-oh oh oh

yeah you got the style
and we've got the style
and they got the style
and everybody's got it

and you got the style
and we've got the style
oh oh

oh it's getting hot in here
there must be something in the atmosphere
oh i could be laughing about it
and making the most of the true british climate
oh it's getting hot in here
there must be something in the atmosphere
oh oh-oh oh oh

beautiful

bringing in the new sound
make it in, oh please make it in
oh i have been missing
fill me in, please fill me in

oh this is beautiful
i've got to soak it up
i've got to soak it up
oh this is beautiful
i've got to soak it up
i've got to soak it up

give me teeth that are golden
grown often to be
shine, shine that light
make it in, bring it in

oh this is beautiful
i've got to soak it up
i've got to soak it up

oh-oh this is beautiful
i've got to soak it up
i've got to soak it up

oh this is beautiful
i've got to soak it up
i've got to soak it up

oh-oh this is beautiful
i've got to soak it up
i've got to soak it up

shake those windows

lives in edinburgh
just across the road
sometimes my stereo and in my aching bones
its on the sugar hill and in your ringtone

shake those windows
songs and songs and beats and rums in life
this blackout it just helps to love those clear night skies

just let the record play and bring it back again
you can't appreciate what we were into then
in two seconds the beat was recognised
and all the old school heads nodded back in time
and though we just met i've known you all my life

shake those windows
songs and songs and beats and rums in life
this blackout it just helps to love those clear night skies

just let the record play and bring it back again
you can't appreciate what we were into then
just let the record play and bring it back again
you can't appreciate what we were into then

just let yourself go

twenty four hours

people rushing left to right
there's pretty faces left to right
i'm just frozen staring into space
faster than the speed of light
i'm holding on, i'm holding tight
cause stars are gonna crash into this place

and it's caught wide screen so we don't miss a thing
now i'm standing clear
cause all i waited for is

closing in
we've still got twenty four hours
we're closing in
we've still got twenty four hours

this is more than daily bread
it's three degrees, it's something else
and you just take it all into your stride
couldn't be an accident
cause i cant see no ambulance
i know that we will work it out this time

and its caught wide screen so we don't miss a thing
now i'm standing clear
cause all i waited for is

closing in
we've still got twenty four hours
we're closing in
we've still got twenty four hours

closing in
we've still got twenty four hours
and now we're closing in
we've still got twenty four hours
it's not over
it's not over
we've still got twenty four hours
it's not over
it's not over yet
we've still got twenty four hours

if i found out

out of energy
i don't know what to do with myself
made it eventually
and now i'm resting on the very last breath

and all i needed was this one
to get me back on my way
it wasn't long before i realised
there was no time to waste
there was soul all around me
everybody let go
it wasn't long before we realised
there was no time to waste

like i'm eleven again
i was the highest kid in the world
reached a point with no end
just looking out so i can take it all in

and all i needed was this one
to get me back on my way
it wasn't long before i realised
there was no time to waste
there was soul all around me
everybody let go
it wasn't long before we realised
there was no time to waste
all i needed was this one
to get me back on my way
it wasn't long before i realised
there was no time to waste

i thank you for soul
no point unless you got soul
this world has got to have soul
looking round for your soul
digging down digging down digging down to your soul
and i found out you got soul
you'll be holding out all your soul
lifting up all your soul
cos i thank you for soul

tourist



this european air
it always warms my face
i wish i could buy some

i will bring you stories
and bleary eyed photos
like a regular tourist

we don't go breaking down
i feel like nothing ever will
we don't go breaking down
i feel like nothing

suitcases down our street
are rolling once again
i roll away with them
five days inside zoo york
to lose myself with friends
i'm nowhere without you

we don't go breaking down
i feel like nothing ever will
we don't go breaking down
i feel like nothing ever will
we will never go breaking down
i feel like nothing

just wanna be with you, my baby

i'm counting up the cost of time
and will embrace our time away
we cannot save ourselves alone
or rely on a mobile phone

just wanna be with you, my baby
just wanna be with you

half light



the sun got stuck, as it's making it's way back down
we find ourselves, in a familiar part of town

and all that i've seen means nothing to me without you

so when i see you next we'll make the most of it
tell the sun to start moving again
the taste of your kiss i still got on my lips
and ill take you there with me

my head crashed down, air conditioned myself to sleep,
the great night out, that will continue to the end of the week

and all that i've seen means nothing to me without you

so when i see you next we'll make the most of it
tell the sun to start moving again
the taste of your kiss i still got on my lips
and ill take you there with me

it's you and me connected to a satellite
it's you and me love through a machine
it's you and me connected to a satellite
it's you and me love through a machine

so when i see you next we'll make the most of it
tell the sun to start moving again
the taste of your kiss i still got on my lips
and i'll take you there with me

chances

take all your chances while you can
you never know when they'll pass you by
like a sum the mathematician cannot solve
like me trying my hardest to explain

it's all about your cries and kisses
those first steps that i can't calculate
i need some more of you to take me over

take me over

if i had the chance to start again
then you would be the one i'd come and find
like a poster of berlin on my wall
maybe there's a chance our walls might fall

it's all about your cries and kisses
those first steps that i can't calculate
i need some more of you to take me over

it's all about your cries and kisses
those first steps that i can't calculate
i need some more of you to take me over

i know i because i cant calculate

how to start again

it's all about you

modern mafia



tell me something i don't know
'cause we've been there ten times before
make it up as we go along
in so deep it can't be wrong
it's obvious that

this is modern mafia
they're scared of us; they're scared of us
it's time for us to redefine
so fix your eyes, fix your eyes
this is modern mafia
they're scared of us; they're scared of us
i don't want to be on my own
i need a home, i need a home

there's a look in your eye
dancing like a samurai
in silence you're still listening
'cause somewhere something's happening
it's obvious that

this is modern mafia
they're scared of us; they're scared of us
it's time for us to redefine
so fix your eyes, fix your eyes
this is modern mafia
they're scared of us; they're scared of us
i don't want to be on my own
i need a home, i need a home

this is modern mafia
they're scared of us; they're scared of us
it's time for us to redefine
so fix your eyes, fix your eyes
this is modern mafia
they're scared of us; they're scared of us
i don't want to be on my own
i need a home, i need a home

this is modern mafia
they're scared of us; they're scared of us
it's time for us to redefine
so fix your eyes, fix your eyes

yesterday threw everything at me

switch on the light, between each other
elevated to your side, now i'm nervous
it's time to tell you honestly, so we can alter history

you are, first on my list,
when everything around is gone i know
you are, first on my list
when everything is shown up for what it is

plastic flowers that fight for colour
shadows floating on the ground, that always follow
like international acclaim, it comes and goes never the same

you are, first on my list
when everything around is gone i know
you are, first on my list
when everything is shown up for what it is

and i will run with it
and sunlight will break into my eyes
and it seems like you plugged the world in
cause sunlight is streaming from your eyes

you are, first on my list,
when everything around is gone i know
you are, first on my list
when everything is shown up for what it is

let's take our time, it won't change over night
we got a chance we didn't have before
let's take our time, it won't change over night
we got a chance we didn't have before

you are, first on my list,
when everything around is gone i know
you are, first on my list
when everything is shown up for what it is

trading air

covered ground
just to reach your house
i know we need to talk
but i can't catch my thoughts
insides gripped
scared of what you'll think
words i can't repeat
could change all we've got

set it off
someone better hit the alarm
set it off
someone better help me

disarm myself
i don't want no-one else
all i want is you
all i want is you

trading air
once more from the start
i can't open up a thousand paper cuts
people hear
what they want to hear
but they won't change a thing
no they won't change a thing

set it off
someone better hit the alarm
set it off
someone better help me

disarm myself
i don't want no-one else
all i want is you
all i want is you

disarm myself
i don't want no-one else
all i want is you
