Track Name: Golddigger
There she goes yea the girl walking toward bar
All my friends seem to think that she's so avant-garde
Now her friends are all giving me the evil eye
Judging by the way they are acting yea it's all so contrived

So I smile and I nod as I walk their way
I know these girls and the silly games they've come to play
Tell my mate hey man listen let's just play it cool
Because these girls are on the prowl and they're questing for fools

They pick at your pockets with good looks and charm
All of these sirens come heavily armed
Dull conversation what it is that you do
Only the liars will tell you the truth

I won't buy your drinks cause I don't know you're name
If you were in my shoes you'd do just the same
...Cause you're a gold digger

So I sigh as I whisper something in her ear
Take her hand our eyes meet as I pull her near
I wanna dance wanna see the way she moves her hips
She flips her hair so casual as she licks her lips

That's enough yea I know that you can do it right
All the knots in my stomach's full of dynamite
Now you know what I'm thinking look into my eyes
And I will show you what I want to do to you tonight

They pick at your pockets with good looks and charm
All of these sirens come heavily armed
Dull conversation what it is that you do
Only the liars will tell you the truth

I won't buy your drinks cause I don't know you're name
If you were in my shoes you'd do just the same
...Cause you're a gold digger
Track Name: It's Too Bad
I see your face and you look disappointed
Dressed up and you're ready to play
Cut it out and come to your senses
You're only here because you wanted the fame

It's too bad that you've got a boyfriend
So sad cuz I'm onto your game
You only want me cuz I'm not even like him
Sorry love but I didn't catch your name

Well you know that you're very attractive
Sleepy eyes that you're eager to flaunt
Just a mistake that's waiting to happen
Your inhibition is all but a front

It's too bad that you've got a boyfriend
So sad cuz I'm onto your game
You only want me cuz I'm not even like him
Sorry love but I didn't catch your name
Track Name: Goodbye
You think you've got the vision, but you've only got the tears in your eyes
You wanna dance around it, but you know that I see through the disguise
You say that you will tell the truth and then you turn it right round on me
I wanted to believe you but I think that you've been built to deceive

You can call your daddy, you know that he can't make it right
You kinda drive me crazy and it's keeping me awake at night

Sometimes I get the feeling that you think of him when you're touching me
I'm always looking around just to see what you've got tucked up your sleeve
I never had a chance with you, you set your sight and then close your fist
I lost myself in moments from the very first moment that we kissed

You can call your daddy, you know that he can't make it right
You kinda drive me crazy and it's keeping me awake at night

Now I'm saying goodbye...
(6x)

Goodbye.
(4x)
Track Name: Turn Of Phrase
I'm following these lines, as you're weaving all your lies
Run your hand along my thighs, dot your t's and cross your i's
And all your politics are nothing more than parlour tricks
Just murmurs from your lips designed to keep me by your side

You call me on the phone as if the answer were unknown
I say sorry, we need a turn of phrase
And nothing that I do is ever good enough for you
So, quickly... we need a turn of phrase

Your love is like a tease, yea you're doin' as you please
Well, you're happy to consume until there isn't any room
For the words are running out, they're stuck inside my mouth
And they're tangled on my teeth as I grin...

Watching as you bend all the rules like you're the wind
Is it hard to comprehend that we can never start again
My blood is running cold, and I won't do as I'm told
Well, one day we'll both be old, but for right now this has to end

You've tied me to the tracks, and I'm never coming back
I'm sorry.... we need a turn of phrase
These ropes are coming loose, and is if I need the proof
So, quickly... we need a turn of phrase

Your love is like a tease, yea you're doin' as you please
Well, you're happy to consume until there isn't any room
For the words are running out, they're stuck inside my mouth
And they're tangled on my teeth as I grin...
Track Name: The Garden
The garden of secrets I think you've been keeping
To what you've been told
A trouble that travels like sound over water
Inside of your soul
A steeple upon a hill all full of people
Their prayers growing cold
A choir of broken glass bottles and liars
These games are so old

You better run for the shade
I think that our cover's been made
Damages the girl's been paid
And how I know I've been played

Well you say you want to and I guess I want the same
Then you let me kiss you but you leave me in the rain
Yea you let me love you then you ride into the sun
You always leave me guessing and I guess what's done is done...

A fire of angry and burning desire
Consumes what it sees
A fountain of visions that stream down a mountain
Swept out to the sea
A shadow manifests itself down by the gallows
Whispers on the breeze
A violence so deafening loud that its silence
Brings all do their knees

You better run for the shade
I think that our cover's been made
Damages the girl's been paid
And how I know I've been played

Well you say you want to and I guess I want the same
Then you let me kiss you but you leave me in the rain
Yea you let me love you then you ride into the sun
You always leave me guessin and I guess what's done is
Guess what's done is guess what's done is done...
Track Name: Kind Of Wish You Knew
Kind of wish you knew, all the stupid things I'd love to say to you
What a lovely dress, the way it hangs down from your shoulders across your chest
An invitation to run my hands across your hips and kiss your neck
I kind of wish you knew... all the stupid things I'd love to say to you
Never more is true, 1 and 1 and 1 make 2...

Lining up another hat trick, three times and all this static's
got this girl clinging onto me when I want to take you home
Figure out a way to ditch her, in my mind I have a picture
Your stockings are all knotted up and your shoes are by the door
There's nothing I'd like more...

Kind of wish you knew, all the stupid things I'd love to say to you
Like, I'm thinkin' of... the way that you might taste and the way you might make love
And how I'd be the fool not to ask you for a dance and buy a drink or two
I Kind of wish you knew, all the stupid things I'd love to say to you
Never more is true, 1 and 1 and 1 make 2...

If we could talk about it, I want to scream and shout it
As complicated as this seems, I don't want to be alone
How I wish to steal your kisses, to feel your mouth and hear your whispers
In my ears and on my brow, sends shivers down my spine
I've got to make you mine...

Not sure what I should do, as I watch from across the room...
Kind of wish you knew, all the stupid things I'd love to say to you.
