Track Name: Lovers and Trains
They say lovers take trains at night
to avoid the hurt they feel at first light
they ride by the seat of their pants
in a carriage, they wrecked with romance

Don't want another fight
Don't want another night, solo

They say lovers take trains at night
to linger longer with their love at first sight
their hearts race out of control
in a furnace, they stoke with coal

Don't want another fight
Don't want another night, solo

They say lovers take trains at night
making sure they are on the right track
too afraid of their past mistakes
with the daylight there’s no looking back

Don't want another fight
Don't want another night, solo
Track Name: Cafe Girl
Café girl, lodged in the window
Café Girl, coffee gets cold
Café Girl, meeting no-one though you might think so

Café Girl, Café Girl, Café Girl

Café girl, doing her lipstick
Café girl, coffee gets cold
Café girl, meeting no one though you might think so

Café girl, Café girl, Café girl,

Café girl, lodged in the window
Café Girl, coffee gets cold
Café Girl, meeting no-one though you might think so

Café girl, Café girl, Café girl

Café girl, coffee gets cold

Fille Café, dans pret a manger
Fille Café, le café deviant froid
Fille Cafe, n'attend pas que vous le croyez
Fille Café, Fille Café
Track Name: Any Other Way
Take my hand, I’ll guide you there
Open my eyes, I’ll set you fair
O beat my heart, it beats for you

Any other way, my love, I will find
Any other way my love I will find you

O fly these words, & speak to you
O’er mountain range, and valley fir
Soar up through sky, and float on wind

Any other way, my love, I will find
Any other way my love I will find you

In City light, by sun or moon
Street by street, thru 5th avenue
I can guide you, I can guide you

Any other way, my love, I will find
Any other way my love I will find you
Any other way my I will find you
Track Name: Turret Grove
I’ve been walking down Turrett Grove
The walls are high & the gates are closed
I see you peering out from your window
On Turrett Grove, Turrett Grove

I’ve been walking down Turrett Grove
See the smoke from wood burning stoves
Bikes go by, you wonder where they go
On Turrett Grove, Turrett Grove

I’ve been walking down Turrett Grove
I’m blind to the sights from your window
Know nothing of the prison you’re in
On Turrett Grove, Turrett Grove

I won’t hear you calling out to me
I ignore you, & continue my journey
Your rich ivory tower is no concern to me
On Turrett Grove, Turrett Grove
Track Name: Rapid Results
Everybody wants rapid results
they move so fast
Everybody wants rapid results
a quick fix wont last

They don't want it now
They wanted it yesterday
They don't want it now
They wanted it yesterday
Track Name: Shop
I want to own my own shop
Music below and a café on the top
It’d be cool just to hang out
We’d all be friends and we’d have to shout

I want to own my own shop
Music below and a café on the top
Piped up music all over the place
Smiles on everybody’s face

It’d be cool yeah yeah
It’d be cool yeah yeah

I want to own my own shop
There’d be a balcony on top
Sit in the sun, Sipping fun
Tell all your friends to come

It’d be cool yeah yeah
It’d be cool yeah yeah

I want to own my own shop
But I need loads of cash to start it up
And a couple of partners to wrap things up
Come on – let’s set it up

It’d be cool yeah yeah
It’d be cool yeah yeah
It’d be cool yeah yeah
It’d be cool yeah yeah
Track Name: Francine's Coat
Francine’s coat, is laid
Over her chair, she has
Gone without it again

Francine’s coat, is laid
Over her chair, she has
Gone without it again

She’s in the road
In the rain
Oblivious to it all

Francine’s cold, she don’t know
It’ll be the death of her

Francine’s coat, is laid
Over her chair, she has
Gone without it again

Francine’s coat
She don’t know
It’ll be the death of her

She’s alright in bad weather
When the sun ain’t out
& she’s holding on
In her eyes are stormy skies

Francine’s coat, is laid
Over his lair, she has
Gone without it again

Francine’s coat, she don’t know
It’ll be the death of her

Francine’s cold,
She don’t know,
He would be the death of her……
Track Name: The Cautionary Tale of Alphonse du Gard
This is the cautionary tale of Alphonse Du Gard and his search for love.
He's been down in the dumps and lonely in life for a very long time
He had a series of dates that didn't go well
“Well”? They didn't show up.

Parks and hills hold such misery
Parks and Hills hold such, misery

So today he met Valerie Parks up on Parliament Hill
For an ice skating date he had bought a ring
So she’d say yes to him!
He was down on one knee
Ring in his hand, praying for the ice to break
And oh how it did

She slipped and fell
She knocked in to him
He sliced in to her
She let out a yell

Her fingers spun over the ice
It was a blood curdling scene
With blood curdling screams
From everyone.

Poor old Alphonse Dugard remains a single man in custody..
Track Name: (Murder in) Heydrop Crescent
She said she heard every jealous word
You said about her
She’s getting into our private lives
Filling our minds - with her stupid lies
Twist those pretty words
Twist them like it hurts
We’re going away for good
You blackmail as you clean your tail
Show the way you went up the wall

Now I don’t care at all
I don’t care all
What’s the word they say?
What’s the word they say?

She said she heard every murderous word
I said about her
I got in through her private gates
And Filled her mind with my stupid lies
Twist those pretty words?
Twist them like it hurts?
You’re going away for good
I blackmail as you clean my trail
Wont show the way you I went up the wall

Now I don’t care at all
I don’t care all
What’s the word they say?
What’s the word they say?

She said she heard every jealous word
You said about her
Getting into our private lives
Filling our minds with her stupid lies
Twist those pretty words
Twist them like it hurts
We’re going away for good

Now I don’t care at all
I don’t care all
What’s the word they say?
What’s the word they say?

Lalallalaaa laa
Lalalalaaa la laala laaa
Track Name: Down on You
Never guessed you weren’t like the rest
When you moved in
Never thought I’d never move every time
You danced alone, under lamplight
Never knew your name, so I called you secret
Like you were the last time around
I’m looking down on you
Down on you
Down on you
Someone left a light on, shining all night
I knew it wasn’t you, you weren’t home
Someone new walked you home last time
Someone who wasn’t good enough for you/good enough for you
I’m looking down on you
Down on you
Down on you
We don’t talk
We don’t touch
We don’t know
We don’t walk
We don’t dance
We don’t know each other
