(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

Shivers

I took an arrow to the heart
I never kissed a mouth that tastes like yours
Strawberries and somethin' more
Ooh yeah, I want it all
Lipstick on my guitar (ooh)
Fill up the engine, we can drive real far
Go dancin' underneath the stars
Ooh yeah, I want it all
Mm, you got me feelin' like

I wanna be that guy, I wanna kiss your eyes
I wanna drink that smile, I wanna feel like I'm
Like my soul's on fire, I wanna stay up all day and all night
Yeah, you got me singin' like

Ooh, I love it when you do it like that
And when you're close up, give me the shivers
Oh baby, you wanna dance 'til the sunlight cracks
And when they say the party's over, then we'll bring it right back
And we'll say, ooh, I love it when you do it like that
And when you're close up, give me the shivers
Oh baby, you wanna dance 'til the sunlight cracks
And when they say the party's over, then we'll bring it right back

Into the car
On the backseat in the moonlit dark
Wrap me up between your legs and arms
Ooh, I can't get enough
You know you could tear me apart (ooh)
Put me back together and take my heart
I never thought that I could love this hard
Ooh, I can't get enough
Mm, you got me feeling like

I wanna be that guy, I wanna kiss your eyes
I wanna drink that smile, I wanna feel like I'm
Like my soul's on fire, I wanna stay up all day and all night
Yeah, you got me singin' like

Ooh, I love it when you do it like that
And when you're close up, give me the shivers
Oh baby, you wanna dance 'til the sunlight cracks
And when they say the party's over, then we'll bring it right back
And we'll say, ooh, I love it when you do it like that
And when you're close up, give me the shivers
Oh baby, you wanna dance 'til the sunlight cracks
And when they say the party's over, then we'll bring it right back

Baby, you burn so hot
You make me shiver with the fire you got
This thing we started, I don't want it to stop
You know you make me shiver-er-er
Baby, you burn so hot
You make me shiver with the fire you got
This thing we started, I don't want it to stop
You know you make me shiver
Yeah, you got me singin' like

Ooh, I love it when you do it like that
And when you're close up, give me the shivers
Oh baby, you wanna dance 'til the sunlight cracks
And when they say the party's over, then we'll bring it right back (oh no)
And we'll say, ooh, I love it when you do it like that
And when you're close up, give me the shivers
Oh baby, you wanna dance 'til the sunlight cracks
And when they say the party's over, then we'll bring it right back, hey

First Times

I thought it'd feel different playing Wembley
Eighty thousand singing with me
It's what I've been chasing 'cause this is the dream

When it was all over, I cleared out the room
Grabbed a couple beers, just me and you
Then we start talking the way that we do

Ain't it funny how the simplest things in life can make a man?
Little moments that pass us by
Oh, but I remember

The first kiss, the first night, the first song that made you cry
The first drink, red wine, on a step in Brooklyn
I still feel the first fight, and we both made it out alive
And I can't wait to make a million more first times
(Mm-hmm, mm-hmm)

The greatest thing that I have achieved
This four little words, down on one knee
Said, "Darling, are you joking?"
And I just said, "Please"

Ain't it funny how the simplest things in life can make a man?
Little moments that pass us by
Oh, but I remember

The first kiss, the first night, the first song that made you cry
The first look in your eyes when I said, "I love you"
I can still feel the butterflies from when we stumbled home that night
I can't wait to make a million more first times
(Mm-hmm, mm-hmm)

Ain't it funny how the simplest things in life can make a man?
Little moments that pass us by
Oh, but I remember

First kiss, first night, first song that made you cry
First dance, moonlight, in your parents' garden
I can't wait to see everything that's yet to be
Our first child, and then a million more first times

Bad Habits

(One, two, three, four)

Ooh
Every time you come around, you know I can't say no
Every time the sun goes down, I let you take control
I can feel the paradise before my world implodes
And tonight had something wonderful

My bad habits lead to late nights ending alone
Conversations with a stranger I barely know
Swearing this will be the last but it probably won't
I've got nothing left to lose, or use, or do
My bad habits lead to wide eyes staring at space
And I know I lose control of the things that I say
Yeah, I was looking for a way out, now I can't escape
Nothing happens after two
It's true, it's true
My bad habits lead to you (ooh)

My bad habits lead to you (ooh)
My bad habits lead to you

Every pure intention ends when the good times start
Falling over everything to reach the first-time spark
It started under neon lights and then it all got dark
I only know how to go too far

My bad habits lead to late nights ending alone
Conversations with a stranger I barely know
Swearing this will be the last but it probably won't
I've got nothing left to lose, or use, or do
My bad habits lead to wide eyes staring at space
And I know I lose control of the things that I say
Yeah, I was looking for a way out, now I can't escape
Nothing happens after two
It's true, it's true
My bad habits lead to you (ooh)
My bad habits lead to you (ooh)

We took the long way 'round
And burned 'til the fun ran out, now

My bad habits lead to late nights ending alone
Conversations with a stranger I barely know
Swearing this will be the last but it probably won't
I've got nothing left to lose, or use, or do
My bad habits lead to wide eyes staring at space
And I know I lose control of the things that I say
I was looking for a way out, now I can't escape
Nothing happens after two
It's true, it's true
My bad habits lead to you (ooh)

My bad habits lead to you (ooh)
My bad habits lead to you

Overpass Graffiti

This is a dark parade
Another rough patch to rain on
To rain on
I know your friends may say
This is a cause for celebration
Hip-hip-hooray, love
Photographs in sepia tones
So still, the fire's barely fighting the cold
Alone
There are times when I can feel your ghost
Just when I'm almost letting you go
The cards were stacked against us both

I will always love you for what it's worth
We'll never fade like graffiti on the overpass
And I know time may change the way you think of us
But I'll remember the way we were
You were the first full stop, love that will never leave
Baby, you will never be lost on me

This is a goddamn shame
I never wanted to break it, or leave us tainted
Know I should walk away
But I just can't replace us or even erase us
The car was stuck, the engine stalled
And both of us got caught out in the snow
Alone
There were times when I forget the lows
And think the highs were all that we'd ever known
The cards were stacked against us both

I will always love you for what it's worth
We'll never fade like graffiti on the overpass
And I know time may change the way you think of us
But I'll remember the way we were
You were the first full stop, love that will never leave
Baby, you will never be lost on me
Lost on me
Baby, you will never be lost on me
Lost on me

Well, I will always love you for what it's worth
We'll never fade like graffiti on the overpass
And I know time may change the way you think of us
But I'll remember the way we were
You were the first full stop, love that will never leave
Baby, you will never be lost on me

Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Lost on me, ooh
Graffiti on the overpass

The Joker and The Queen

How was I to know?
It's a crazy thing
I showed you my hand
And you still let me win
And who was I to say
That this was meant to be?
The road that was broken
Brought us together

And I know you could fall for a thousand kings
And hearts that would give you a diamond ring
When I fold, you see the best in me
The joker and the queen

I was upside down
From the outside in
You came to the table
And you went all in
With a single word
And a gentle touch
You turned a moment
Into forever

And I know you could fall for a thousand kings
And hearts that could give you a diamond ring
When I fold, you see the best in me
The joker and the queen

And I know you could fall for a thousand kings
And hearts that would give you a diamond ring
When I folded, you saw the best in me
The joker and the queen
The joker and the queen

Leave Your Life

If I forget to say goodbye
Before I catch the plane
Would you know the way that I
Feel when I'm away?
We'll see the same sky tonight
But the stars are out of place
You'll never know the weight of my heart
Every time I leave you, babe

It's hard to break the landing
But I'll see you again

I'm never gonna leave your life
Even at the times I'm miles away
You are always on my mind
Forever and now, I will be by your side
I know it can change from day to day
But this love will keep alive
I'm never gonna leave your life
I-I-I, I'm never gonna leave your life

Oh, I could never tell your lie
Or put in words your finest traits
The darkest green and hazel eyes
And yet I can't describe the shade
You are all this heart of mine
And there you will remain
You'll never know the weight of my decisions
When I leave your smiling face

It's hard to understand it
But I'll see you again

Oh, I
I'm never gonna leave your life
Even at the times I'm miles away
You are always on my mind
Forever and now, I will be by your side
I know it can change from day to day
But this love will keep alive
I'm never gonna leave your life
I-I-I, I'm never gonna leave your life

It's hard to break the landing
But I'll see you again

I'm never gonna leave your life
Even at the times I'm miles away
You are always on my mind
Forever and now, I will be by your side
I know it can change from day to day
But this love will keep alive
I'm never gonna leave your life
I-I-I, I'm never gonna leave your life

If I forget to say goodbye
Before I catch the plane
Would you know the way that I
Feel when I'm away?

Collide

Oh yeah, we've been in the rain
Been on the rocks, but we found our way
We've ordered pizza to an aeroplane
Slept on the beach like we were castaways
We've been a storm
Been to an Irish bar in central Rome
Driven to hospitals with broken bones
Shared a toothbrush and shared our home

We've seen the moon reflect on the rolling tide
Been up at 5 AM, watching the sunrise
Because the world looks better when I'm by your side
Oh I, oh I, oh I

When you and I collide
You bring me to life
Yeah, you bring me to life
You bring me to life
When you and I collide
You bring me to life
Yeah, you bring me to life
You bring me to life

We've been on the road
We've watched the blossom fall to earth like snow
Fumbled in cubicles in Tokyo
And been to funerals in rented clothes

Mmm, we drank your father's whiskey when your grandma died
You brought me to the morning through my darkest night
Yeah, the world hurts less when I'm by your side
Oh I, oh I, oh I

When you and I collide
You bring me to life
You bring me to life
You bring me to life
When you and I collide
You bring me to life
Yeah, you bring me to life
Yeah, you bring me to life

Head first, colliding
Dreamers, colliding
Universe, colliding
Your love let the light in
Head first, colliding
Dreamers, colliding
Universe, colliding

We made love in the sky
Overslept and missed the Northern Lights
You lost your wedding ring but I didn't mind
'Cause I got a feeling, baby, we'll be fine

2step

I had a bad week
Spent the evening pretending it wasn't that deep
You could see in my eyes that it was taking over
I guess I was just blind and caught up in the moment
You know you take all of my stress right down
Help me get it off my chest and out
Into the ether with the rest of this mess that just keeps us depressed
We forget that we're here right now

'Cause we're living life at a different pace, stuck in a constant race
Keep the pressure on, you're bound to break
Something's got to change
We should just be cancelling all our plans, and not give a damn
If we're missing out on what the people think is right
Seeing through a picture behind the screen and forget to be
Lose the conversation for the message that you'll never read
I think maybe you and me
Oh, we should head out to the place where the music plays

And then we'll go all night
Two-stepping with the woman I love
All my troubles turn to nothing when I'm in your eyes
Electrified, we'll keep turning up and go all night
Oh, we had dips and falls in our time
But we know what it feels to be low then up, alone and loved
And all we need is us to go all
Night, night
Two-stepping with the woman I love
Night, yeah
All we need is us

What do you reckon, is it just me?
Words are weapons and occasionally they cut deep
Crisis of confidence, it tends to come when I feel the dark
And I open my heart
If you don't see it, you should trust me
I feel like I've got nothing left right now
Except this beauty in a dress right now
She got me feeling like the best, and the rest are just less
Than she needs, so we press play and step to the beat
'Cause we're living life at a different pace, stuck in a constant race
Keep the pressure on, you're bound to break
Something's got to change
We should just be cancelling all our plans, and not give a damn
Head out to the place where it plays

And we'll go all night
Two-stepping with the woman I love
All my troubles turn to nothing when I'm in your eyes
Electrified, we'll keep turning up and go all night
Oh, we had dips and falls in our time
But we know what it feels to be low then up, alone and loved
And all we need is us to go all
Night, night
Two-stepping with the woman I love
Night, yeah
All we need is us to go all night
Night, night
Two-stepping with the woman I love
Night, yeah
All we need is us to go all night

Stop The Rain

Another human cloud to bring you down
When you blew the last away
Bring out a poisoned tongue or plastic crown
But for me, they look the same
Sometimes it can get all too much for me
And that's why the photograph gets burned
Throw the match in gasoline, ayy-ayy

Don't let the ones who hurt you see you cry
Tomorrow is another day

You cannot stop the rain, no way
Holding an umbrella when the gray clouds come over again
Tryna find something real
But it's not the game they play
Pretending that the weather is in your mind, you got no one to blame
But that's just the way I feel
You cannot stop the rain, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
You cannot stop the rain, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Another "I, me, mine" to blur the lines
Between love and then heartbreak
Oh, it's a lonely life thinking you're right
And always shifting blame
Every time it's getting more and more ugly
And that's why the photograph gets burned
Throw the match in gasoline, ayy-ayy

Don't let them tell you keep it all inside
I know the winds have got to change

You cannot stop the rain, no way
Holding an umbrella when the gray clouds come over again
Tryna find something real
But it's not the game they play
Pretending that the weather is in your mind, you got no one to blame
But that's just the way I feel
You cannot stop the rain, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
You cannot stop the rain, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

And it seems like time
Can be so much more than a wakeup call to live real life
Every day is a chance that we can start over
Read my mind
There'll be ups and downs, but it won't change a thing between you and I
There's one thing I can't change

You cannot stop the rain, no way
Holding an umbrella when the gray clouds come over again
Tryna find something real
But it's not the game they play
Pretending that the weather is in your mind, you got no one to blame
But that's just the way I feel

You cannot stop the rain, no way
Holding an umbrella when the gray clouds come over again
Tryna find something real
But it's not the game they play
Pretending that the weather is in your mind, you got no one to blame
But that's just the way I feel
You cannot stop the rain, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
You cannot stop the rain, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Can't stop the rain, yeah (yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
Can't stop the rain, yeah
Can't stop the rain (yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
Can't stop the rain
Can't stop the rain (yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
No, can't stop the rain (yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)

Love In Slow Motion

It's been a while since we've been alone
So turn off the world and the telephone
I need to tell you you're beautiful
'Cause it's been a while and I apologize
I just get caught up in the rat race I'm running
Chasing a moment I'm hoping is coming
If I stopped and took a look around
It's in front of my eyes, eyes

Baby, let's slow down time
Maybe just press rewind
Darling, that dress reminds
Me of the first time

And I wanna love tonight
One on one, by the candlelight
Over and over, we spend our lives
Living fast forward but not tonight
Love in slow motion

It's been a while since it was you and me
Too many friends, too many evening drinks
Yeah, we commit to so many things
But not to ourselves and I apologize
Sometimes you're sad and you tell me it's nothing
And I brush it off because there's always something
But I need to change my perspective and prioritize-ize

There's one thing I know, it's this
Every moment missed
Can be restored with your lips
It only takes one kiss

And I wanna love tonight
One on one, by the candlelight
Over and over, we spend our lives
Living fast forward but not tonight
Love in slow motion

Ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh

Love tonight
One on one, by the candlelight
Over and over, we spend our lives
Living fast forward but not tonight
Love in slow motion

Wanna love tonight
One on one, by the candlelight
Over and over we spend our lives
Living fast forward but not tonight
Love in slow motion
In slow motion
In slow motion

Visiting Hours

I wish that heaven had visiting hours
So I could just show up and bring the news
That she's gettin' older and I wish that you'd met her
The things that she'll learn from me, I got them all from you

Can I just stay a while and we'll put all the world to rights?
The little ones will grow and I'll still drink your favorite wine
And soon, they're going to close, but I'll see you another day
So much has changed since you've been away

I wish that heaven had visiting hours
So I could just swing by and ask your advice
What would you do in my situation? I haven't a clue how I'd even raise them
What would you do? 'Cause you always do what's right

Can we just talk a while until my worries disappear?
I'd tell you that I'm scared of turnin' out a failure
You'd say, "Remember that the answer's in the love that we create"
So much has changed since you've been away

I wish that heaven had visiting hours
And I would ask them if I could take you home
But I know what they'd say, that it's for the best
So I will live life the way you taught me, and make it on my own

And I will close the door, but I will open up my heart
And everyone I love will know exactly who you are
'Cause this is not goodbye, it is just 'til we meet again
So much has changed since you've been away

Sandman

You were loved before you had arrived
And every day that love just multiplies
Daddy made your bed and your lullaby
And mama made the mobile in the sky
And loving you is easy
But life will not always be
Fall into the world of your song
Whatever you feel can never be wrong

Come along for the ride
And in a shake of a lamb's tail, we'll go
Be still now and close your eyes

And dream
Hanging out with the Sandman
You look so sweet, my child
Hanging out with the Sandman
But though there's rain outside, you'll be warm and dry
The thunder and the lightning won't hurt you now
So go to sleep, my love
Hanging out with the Sandman

Chocolate covered roof and candy cars
Rainbow sugar river we can sail upon
Marshmallow books and strawberries
Snowmen made of ice cream
Over the flower fields, we'll fly
We'll count the fish in the sky
Honeybees and birds sing your song
Whatever you feel can never be wrong

But come along for the ride
And in a shake of a lamb's tail, we'll go
Be still now and close your eyes

And dream
Hanging out with the Sandman
You look so sweet, my child
Hanging out with the Sandman
But though there's rain outside, you'll be warm and dry
The thunder and the lightning won't hurt you now
So go to sleep, my love
Hanging out with the Sandman

Come along for the ride
And in a shake of a lamb's tail, we'll go
Be still now and close your eyes

And dream
Hanging out with the Sandman
You look so sweet, my child
Hanging out with the Sandman
But though there's rain outside, you'll be warm and dry
The thunder and the lightning won't hurt you now
So go to sleep, my love
Hanging out with the Sandman

We're hanging out with the Sandman
We're hanging out with the Sandman
We're hanging out with the Sandman

Be Right Now

A lifetime is starting to feel like
It's falling short of the mark
But it's all that we got
Every teardrop, every wrong turn
Made the moment we found
And it's coming around, around, around, around, around

I don't wanna miss one thing
We can turn the whole world down
And listen to the in-between
We are, we are the sound
There's nothing but the space we're in
The hurry and the noise shut out
Just stay here and be right now

The shadows cling to the ceiling
And fracture the light that lands in our eyes
Every moment changes the whole view
And just when it ends
I feel it again, again, again, again, again

I don't wanna miss one thing
We can turn the whole world down
And listen to the in-between
We are, we are the sound
There's nothing but the space we're in
The hurry and the noise shut out
Just stay here and be right now

And nothing else matters
And nothing else matters
And nothing else matters
Stay here and be right now

And nothing else matters
And nothing else matters
And nothing else matters
Stay here and be right now

I don't wanna miss one thing
We can turn the whole world down
And listen to the in-between
We are, we are the sound
There's nothing but the space we're in
The hurry and the noise shut out
Just stay here and be right now
