Track Name: Great Expectations
What ever I say, you see red
What ever you do, anger fills my head
In way to deep just to forget
But not far enough to remember words you've said

It's not logical
for us to be together
It's psychological
To only want what you can't have

I'm sorry for being sorry
I never really meant it, just didn't want to argue
and All I ever do is worry
About what might happen next

Ring me up to apologise
A question in disguise
Do I stay safe with the same reply
Tell the truth to tell a lie

It's not logical
It's psychological

I'm sorry for being sorry
I never really meant it, just didn't want to argue
and All I ever do is worry
About what might happen next
But its always about you
In everything you do
It's always about you
Track Name: Nice To Know You
It was nice to see you, to see you go
nice to recapture all control
you're own invention of my intentions
A story made up in your head

Thats why I don't get this
But I guess I'm over it

It was nice to know your name
When I see you again
They'll be nothing more than an awkward situation
And it was nice to know my place
When I see you again
I guess I'll go to avoid that conversation

It was nice to know you, to know you nice
That's what took me by such surprise
The complication of communication
You should have just said how you felt

But I guess it's to late now

It was nice to know your name
When I see you again
They'll be nothing more than an awkward situation
And it was nice to know my place
When I see you again
I guess I'll go to avoid that conversation

and It's not that I'm feeling horrible
It's I just don't really understand why
and where it's all gone

But I guess I'm moving on

It was nice to know your name
When I see you again
They'll be nothing more than an awkward situation
And it was nice to know my place
When I see you again
I hope you go, I hope you're not okay with it
Track Name: Gone Fishing
Remember when we tried to catch a fish
We had nothing but a piece of line attached to a stick
We dipped in the river and waited hours for a bite
Still we didn't catch that fish

We didn't have a piece of bait
Just put the line in and sat there and talked while we waited
There was probably no fish in the river, or its cos we didn't have the bait
but still we waited for that fish

And at the time we hated it
We always complained that
we were wasting our time, always wasting our time

Friend, we moved on from that world
Lost communication between jobs, between girls
But now I'm sat here in my room, looking for something to do
Remembering time well spent when
I was wasting it with you

Remember when we used to go to school
We'd sit in classrooms hiding from teachers in the hall
Hoping that they would never find us cos we didn't want to go
Those classes always were so slow

And at the time we hated it
We always complained that
we were wasting our time, always wasting our time

Friend, we moved on from that world
Lost communication between jobs, between girls
But now I'm sat here in my room, looking for something to do
Remembering time well spent when
I was wasting it with you

All the people I don't remember
That horrible feeling in September
Didn't go away until November, remember?

All the things we said we'd regret
Doing things that I can't forget
I didn't realise until we left
How much fun we had back then

Remember when we tried to catch a fish
There was no hoping in hell because that fish does not exist
But all the things we spoke about, all the stories been and gone
I'm always waiting for that fish

Friend, we moved on from that world
Lost communication between jobs, between girls
But now I'm sat here in my room, looking for something to do
Remembering time well spent when
I was wasting it with
Friends, we moved on from that world
Lost communication between jobs, between girls
But now I'm sat here in my room, looking for something to do
Remembering time well spent when
I was wasting it friends
Track Name: Being Me
I get high
from running around the park
making other people laugh
taking beers in the bath

I get low
at the thought of growing old
at thought of being told
I'll die young bitter and cold

I realise that
my dreams might not come true
quite as often as yours do
in this over crowded room
they call music

But thats the way life goes I'm told
They said I'd figure it out when I was older
But so far I know one thing
and thats, I just want to be me

I get high
when I see my girlfriend's face
When we travel to each place
to play music on the stage

But my friends
Fall in and out of me
They have problems with the being
that I am or that I've been

We might not get
To where we want to go
but I'll break my back and bones
For my family and my home
I'll try my best

But thats the way life goes I'm told
They said I'd figure it out when I was older
But so far I know one thing
and thats, I just want to be me

and I might not play reading, I might not play leeds. I might not ever make it to Glastonbury.
And I might not play warped tour, I might not make it, but at least I'll have the memories of the things we did.

and I might not play reading, and I might not play leeds, but at least I'll have the memories of the things we did.
