Track Name: Soul Can't Be Tamed
Hey
Don't sit on your soul
You've gotta let it breath
You've gotta let it roll

So don't
No no don't
Don't sit on your soul
No no no no

Your soul is a beast and it can't be tamed
You soul is a beast it can't be contained
Just let it go
Just let it flow
Your soul is a beast and it can't be tamed

Hey
Don't sit on your soul
You've gotta let it move
You've gotta lose control

So don't
No no don't
Don't sit on your soul
You've gotta lose control
Track Name: Whatever Day
I wake up at a quarter to ten
And the rain is striking my window
I look for clothes but there's nothing fresh
I gotta do the wash, yeah I think so
I have some fruit, it's a little too ripe
But I eat it all the same
And then I spend an hour and some
Playing the computer game

It's not so bad
It's not so good
It's not that bad
It's not that good
It's not the worst
But it's not great
Another day
A wasted slate

I go out to get some groceries
But I forget my list at home
I do my best from memory
And I miss the milk, oh no
I think about everything I could do
And I end up doing none
I look at the clock and it's already four
But I thought that it was one

Ooh, it's a whatever day, hey hey
I missed the most of it
I missed the most of it
But I can make it up
Tomorrow

I've got a book but I fall asleep
When I get to page fourteen
And I wake up and I realize that
I never had a chance to clean
It's getting late and I need some food
From freezer to the microwave
It tastes alright and it fills me up
But it's nothing I would crave
Track Name: Don't Hold Me Back
The music starts and I turn to you
You've got this look like there's nothing to do
I know you're bored and you don't have to
But don't hold me back oh oh oh ooh

I'm gonna make
I'm gonna make it
I'm gonna make it happen
I'm gonna make it happen tonight

Oh whoa when I see you
I cannot leave you
Cause I need you
Oh whoa but I feel my
Feet cannot be tied
Anymore

Can't you feel, what I feel
How can you sit there so very still
You can blame it on your heel
But don't hold me back I'm getting ill

Now I can accept that maybe you don't like dancing
But it's a part of me
And I need to let that dancing out sometimes
And I can only hope that you understand what I'm going through

The music plays and I turn to you
It's getting good I know what I gotta do
I know you're bored and you don't have to
But don't hold me back oh oh oh ooh
Track Name: You Could Destroy Me
I've been clinging to you like a moss on a rock
If you gonna go rolling then I'm gonna get squashed
I've been hanging from you like a bat in a cave
If we ever fallout I won't know how to escape

I'm a little bit worried and
I hope I never have to see the end
I built my trust in you just like a home
And now I've got nowhere else to go

I've been growing to you like a tree in the dirt
If you gonna loosen up my falling won't get heard
I've been thinking of you like a bee does the hive
If you gonna go missing then I will not survive

Oh, well you know
You could destroy me
Oh, you well know
That you could destroy me

I know that I must be good to you
Cause I know what it is that you can do
I know I mustn't do no wrong to you
Cause we both know what it is you can do

I've been sticking to you like the PB and J
If you gonna take my bread then I'm a mess on the plate
I've been swimming in you like a fish in a lake
If you gonna dry up then I got nowhere to stay
Track Name: Magic Tonight
What's this unexplainable feeling
It's got the hairs pulling from my skin
What's this peculiar tingle
I swear there's more here at work

Oh I think there's been some magic
It's making me feel a little uneasy
Can you feel that chill, it was there just now
I don't know, but there's been some magic tonight

What's this unusual shiver
I can't help glancing over my shoulder
What's this strange sensation
It wasn't here when I started the day

Oh there is definitely some magic here
I'm not sure exactly where it's coming from
It's like as soon as we started talking
But, yeah, I don't really know
You know what I'm talking about though right
It's like everything is just so perfect
I'm not used to that, but I only really want to stare into your eyes
I don't know, but there's been some magic tonight
Track Name: Everybody Deserves
There's
So much
To love
In this world

I just wanna see everybody happy yeah
I just wanna see everybody smiling now

If
We all
Try hard
We can

I just wanna see everybody holding hands
I just wanna see everybody dancing now
Everybody should dance now

Everybody deserves to have a good time
Everybody deserves to feel alright
Everybody deserves a chance to live their life
Everybody deserves to have a good time
Oh so don't take that away from anyone

How
Is it
We are
So troubled

I just wanna hear everybody laughing yeah
I just wanna hear everybody singing yeah

It's
A dream
But I
Can dream

I just wanna see everybody happy yeah
I just wanna see everybody dancing now
Everybody should dance now
Track Name: Let's Go Somewhere Nice
Well, we can't spend all our time
Doing the things we need to do but don't shine
Well, we might need to get some air
So why don't we go somewhere somewhere

Where should we go
Where should we go
I don't know I don't know
But I know we've got to get away
Where should we go
Where should we go
We can't stay no we must go
Yeah I know we need to get away

Well, we don't notice it at all
We get so used to all the bad the things on the wall
Well, we should really change the pace
And I think that it might mean a change of space


Let's go somewhere nice
Somewhere we've never been
Let's go somewhere nice
Somewhere we want to be
Let's go somewhere nice
Let's go and leave the mess
Let's go somewhere nice
We can't settle for anything less

Oh tell me you've got a place in mind
Oh I hope it's not too hard to find
Oh I've been looking forward to a break
Oh I know it's gonna be just great
Track Name: Night/Life
Oh, in the light
I can't seem to find the right
I can only wait for things
To be a little less bright
Even with these shades
I can't wait for it to fade
All the time I wait
For the night to pervade

Oh in the dark
I feel a powerful spark
But I can't abide the sun
Out in the park
Yeah there's no other scene
Than the evening's silver gleam
So I'm waiting for the
Night to intervene

Hey
Let's turn this day into a night inside
Hey
Or chase the moon, we'll go worldwide

Oh if I could
I would live in an underworld
Where the nightlife it would
Keep on going strong
It must be for the best
But I get so depressed
Cause there's nothing good to do
In the sun

Hey
Let's turn this day into a night inside
Hey
Or chase the moon, we'll go worldwide
Hey
And when it's dark we can go outside
Hey
And I'll be safe to open my eyes
Track Name: Bad Neighbour
If they don't like it
Well they can let me know
Cause I get excited
When the bass is turned up low

We will shake everyone from their seats
It would be criminal not to share these beats

If they don't like it
They'll have to shout at me
Cause I like it louder
As loud as it can be

If they don't like it
They should call the police
But I don't believe in
Such quiet and or peace
If they don't like it
They shouldn't live next door
Cause in my neighbourhood
I raise the roof from the floor

Whoa oh, well I'm a bad neighbour
Whoa oh, well I'm a bad neighbour

If they don't like it
They should maybe change their mind
Cause it's the big sounds
That help me to unwind

We will shake everyone from their seats
It would be criminal not to share these beats

If they don't like it
They'll have to shout at me
Cause I like it louder
As loud as it can be
Track Name: A Feeling I Find Quite Appealing
You ask me
What I'm smiling about
But can't I be
Just smiling cause I feel alright

Oh it's a feeling
I find it quite appealing
Oh when I feel alright
I just wanna keep it goin' on

You ask me
What I'm laughing about
But can't I be
Just laughing cause I feel so good

Oh it's a feeling
I find it quite appealing
Oh when I feel so good
Nothing can stop me
Track Name: Give It Some Time
Things haven't been so easy of late
And I know how you must feel
But there's not much that we can do
Everything just suddenly got so real

What was it then you don't remember now
Joyful times buried in woe
You're in a state of denial because
Everything just suddenly got so

Oh you're not having fun anymore
I can tell, by the way you sway
And I'll try my best to comfort you
But all that I can say

When the world turns its back on you
And the rain clouds start closing in
You feel like nothing will be the same
And you don't know how to begin

It wasn't always this hard to deal
And it will change again although
It's hard to keep it in mind when
Everything just suddenly got so
Track Name: Wake Me Up
Oh, I'm fading
Fading like a day's light
But all I need is a reason to
Keep myself upright

I'm so tired of the same thing
Being tired cause there's nothing to do
I'm so tired but I don't want
To just lie myself away
Ooh, so give me something now
If you've got something new
I'm so tired but I won't let
That slow me down

Wake me up
Don't let me sleep through
If you're having fun
Wake me up
I'm only sleeping until
We can have fun

Oh I'm drifting
Drifting like the time
But all I need is something to
Entertain my mind

I'm so tired and I don't think
We suffer from apathy
I'm so tired of the feeling
Being tired cause there's nothing to do
Ooh, so give me something now
If you've got something new
I'm so tired but I won't be
When we figure it out

I go
To sleep
Only cause there's nothing for me
I go
To sleep
Only cause there's nothing for me
