about

This is a re-recorded edition of an album I wrote way back in 2010/2011 and then recorded it using Audacity, a cheap microphone and a 5 string acoustic guitar (because a string broke before I started recording it.
It features all 9 tracks - 7 originals and 2 covers. Some of them have been tweaked to sound better. Obviously, it's still me singing so not much I could do there to improve it other than the recording quality.

Track Name: Perfect
You walk past me every day
And you don't seem to see me anyway
Cause I asked you out and you said no
And your smartness doesn't seem to show.

(chorus)
And you could make this night so perfect
But you don't seem to think that I'm worth it
And you're the one to have some fun with
Cause you're the one to get it on with

You took away my heart
And threw it like a dart
Now there's a point in life no more
Cause you are what I go to school for

(chorus)
And you could make this night so perfect
But you don't seem to think that I'm worth it
And you're the one to have some fun with
Cause you're the one to get it on with
Track Name: I Want To Turn Back Time
I wake up at six o'clock and put on my shoes and socks
Just like yesterday it's always the same way
There's nothing defining between my mornings
Stuck in a monotonous loop, it's so boring.

(chorus)
Cause I've had enough of this life
And I wanna turn back time
And yes you're the best thing that ever happened to me
I wanna turn back time

It's just like groundhog day
Every day for me
Every time I wake up I see you rejected me
If I had a time machine I'd go back and stop me
From asking you out and you hitting me painfully

(chorus)
Cause I've had enough of this life
And I wanna turn back time
And yes you're the best thing that ever happened to me
I wanna turn back time

I wanna turn back time
To a place you were mine
On this year's valentine
Will you please be mine
I wanna turn back time
To a place you were mine
On this year's valentine
Will you please be mine

(chorus)
Cause I've had enough of this life
And I wanna turn back time
And yes you're the best thing that ever happened to me
I wanna turn back time
Track Name: Dammit!
It's alright to tell me
what you think about me
I won't try to argue
Or hold it against you
I know that you're leaving
You must have your reasons
The season is calling
Your pictures are falling down

The steps that I retrace
The sad look on your face
The timing and structure
Did you hear that he kissed her
A day late a buck short
I'm writing the report
On losing and failing
When I move I'm flailing now

(chorus)
And it's happened once again
You'll turn to a friend
Someone who understands
Sees through the masterplan
But everybody's gone
And you've been here for too long
To face this on your own
Well I guess this is growing up

And maybe I'll see you
At a movie sneak preview
You'll show up and walk by
On the arm of that guy
And I'll smile and you'll wave
We'll pretend it's okay
Your charade it won't last
When he's gone, I won't come back

(chorus)
And it's happened once again
You'll turn to a friend
Someone who understands
Sees through the masterplan
But everybody's gone
And you've been here for too long
To face this on your own
Well I guess this is growing up
Track Name: My Own Personal Feud
You will be my punchbag if that's what I want
I will write her love letters in my own personal font
It's all because you love the girl that I lust for
But you'll never get her cause I love her more

It's all MJ's fault

(chorus)
This is my own personal feud
I can't even call you a dude
You just want to see her in the nude
And just cause your mind is rude
It's all MJ's fault

You say that you've got a magic spreadsheet,
You think that you'll win but you're just a cheat
You follow her around like a little puppy
It's no wonder why she prefers me

It's all MJ's fault

(chorus)
This is my own personal feud
I can't even call you a dude
You just want to see her in the nude
And just cause your mind is rude
It's all MJ's fault

You're name is MJ and that's just the start
I've already let her into my heart
It's not just cause I got an early start
I've hit her with one of Cupid's darts

It's too late MJ

(chorus)
This is my own personal feud
I can't even call you a dude
You just want to see her in the nude
And just cause your mind is rude
It's all MJ's fault
Track Name: The Emotionless Feeling
This girl I know called Ellie
Deserves to be on telly
She has a beautiful voice
Beautiful as a Rolls Royce

(chorus)
When I asked her out
She said no
Though no emotions
Did you show
Then it turned out
You loved a girl
The thought didn't wanna make me hurl

My life became a living hell
I was just an empty shell
My thoughts turned to suicide
Then I realised that time went by

(chorus)
When I asked her out
She said no
Though no emotions
Did you show
Then it turned out
You loved a girl
The thought didn't wanna make me hurl
Track Name: Feelings
These feelings are becoming a bit of a habit now
I wonder how far the rabbit hole goes down
These people are acting so differently
I'm starting to wonder what they think of me

(chorus)
People aren't always what they seem to be
I know cause it's confusing me
You've just gotta take it with a pinch of salt
Can't you see that it's not their fault

There may be boys running round starting fights
But the only thing scary is the night
There's girls running wild and no one seems to care
The alcohol is too much for them to bare

(chorus)
People aren't always what they seem to be
I know cause it's confusing me
You've just gotta take it with a pinch of salt
Can't you see that it's not their fault
Track Name: Can't Take My Eyes Off You
You're just too good to be true
Can't take my eyes off of you
You'd be like heaven to touch
I want to hold you so much
At long last love has arrived
And I thank god I'm alive
You're just too good to be true
Can't take my eyes off you

Pardon the way that I stare
There's nothing else to compare
The sight of you leaves me weak
There are no words left to speak
But if you feel like I feel
Please let me know that it's real
You're just too good to be true
Cant' take my eyes off you

(chorus)
Cause I love you baby
And if it's quite alright I need you baby
To warm the lonely nights
I love you baby
Trust in me when I say
Oh pretty baby
Don't bring me down I pray
Oh pretty baby
Now that I've found you stay
And let me love you baby, let me love you

You're just too good to be true
Can't take my eyes off of you
You'd be like heaven to touch
I want to hold you so much
At long last love has arrived
And I thank god I'm alive
You're just too good to be true
Can't take my eyes off you

(chorus)
Cause I love you baby
And if it's quite alright I need you baby
To warm the lonely nights
I love you baby
Trust in me when I say
Oh pretty baby
Don't bring me down I pray
Oh pretty baby
Now that I've found you stay
And let me love you baby, let me love you
Track Name: Thru The Looking Glass
I've got to keep on running to stay where I am
But as you've probably guessed I don't give a damn
The world's not mine to do with what I choose
So what can I do please give me some clues

(chorus)
I want to stay in Wonderland
Where nonsense makes sense
I'm glad I fell down the rabbit hole
My mind's been lost in pretence

I must've grown three million times today
And for my sins there will be hell to pay
Why is it that the good times never last
I've seen the future but I've got to live the past

(chorus)
I want to stay in Wonderland
Where nonsense makes sense
I'm glad I fell down the rabbit hole
My mind's been lost in pretence
Track Name: What's The Point?
No matter how bad your situation gets
Always keep your head held high
And just cause every night's a lonely night it
Doesn't mean to say that you've got to die

(chorus)
All you've got to do is keep strong, keep strong
All you've got to know is that life will go on
The love between us will stay for an eon
Or what's the point of hanging round for life.

There's a guy playing guitar outside of HMV
But you know he makes a mint in gold
Cause one job feeds the pocket and
The other job feeds the soul

(chorus)
All you've got to do is keep strong, keep strong
All you've got to know is that life will go on
The love between us will stay for an eon
Or what's the point of hanging round for life.

You're sat on the train listening to a CD
Taking a swig of your Diet Coke
The guy over there he's looking at you
And he's questioning if you're a bloke
